AiTi:n January 1, 1880, in tlio State of New York tlio into of Interest, except tuiclci. existing contracts, will bo nt tlio rate of six instead of seven per centum pur milium, nml no penalties for usury. Jinn Toojiiw, of Georgia, upon being iwkctl, not long ago, who would lio tlio next I'rosltlent, replied: "Ghant; lifter Guant, tlio Kmplrc." lion is not woll posted us to tlio future, or lio would liavo Ktitl, "After OrtAXT, Blaine." SHAM, tlio South cnpltulato or Cglil? This conundrum, bothers tlio Charleston (S. C.) AVim fiiuJ Courier not .1 llttlo nud is evoked out of its fenrs that tlio Gr.ANT movement is gainliig strength. If history is to repeat itself it appears to ws that the South will capitulate. That, ut nuy rate, is our nnswer to this question, and it is based upou tlio fact that tlio South is in iho habit of capitulating ft) General Quant's move ments Tim vctcrnu Thuiilow Vm:nhns written n letter to tho New York 7 ibuue, in which ho expresses his disappointment with tho finnucinl rocommendntious of tho President and Secretary SHERMAN, nud an equal dis approbation of the fact that the Bayaiiii hill to'tleprivo grcculiacks of their legal tondcr tiunllty has tho support of tho Ad ministration. The 7Vf&Hie says: "Tho " President and tho Secretary nro criticised "for not having urged an International " conference- upon tho silver question with " grcHtcr warmth, nud the propos'il to stop " the coiuago of siher is declared to bo " virtually another dcnionctizalion." But when thoro is uny thing rotten in tho Kadlc.il administration It is generally found to hnvo a secure bulwark somewlicro 011 tlio Democratic slilo of ConRress. Sunday llctahl. Hero's an ndmlssionns is an admission, so to phrase it. lint tho trouble with It is, that its premises nro nil wrong, save nnrt excepting tho allusion to tho"bulwark." Tho Gloveb inquiry in the last Cougrcs3 served to illustrate tills mciuing. It showed that thcro was nothing "lottcu in tlio Kadicnl "administration 5" but that behind tho bitl wnrk of tho Democratic majority in tho Homo there was and is, it is fair to pre sumo any quantity of corruption nnd mal administration. Tho trouhlo with tho ITcraU is that it knows and admits tho rottenness of tho Democracy, nud is trying its level best to make tho Republican party appear to bo tarred with tlio saino stick. But tho effort will fall. Major Buxdy, of tho Now York Etening Mau, relates n conversation ho had with General Gkant during tho lattcr's second term regarding tho TlTZ-JoiIN Tooter case, and prefaces it with tho remark that I'oiiTiiR would liavo been sentenced to ho shot had not tho Court-Martini been afraid that Mr. Lincoln's tenderness of heart would havo prevented tho execution of tho deserved penally. In Biibstnnee, General Grant, according to Major IJundy, Bald : Until I was Prcsldont I had no time to con, Bldor I'okti.r's enso, I had tho conviction, howovor. that Poivrnn did not co-opcrato with PnrE as HiiLnMAN and Mal'iiBithON did with mo in tho West. Hut whon I recolved Pon tub's petition and found that tho substance of it win that tho rebels weio in stronir form in front of Iilm, I mailo up my mind tlmt as long as 1 was president ins caso Btioulil not bo reopened. Ho did not know that It wns not best that his corps should be whipped, lio had no buslnoss to doubt or disobey orders. Tin: Democratic organ is grently exor cised in nnd about its ccrobral vacuum over tho political situation. The empty rover beratlous which nn inscrutable Providcnco permits to issuo forth from its nssiuluo domo of alleged thought regarding this matter nro npparontly hased upon tho as sumptionif they hno any basis nt nil that tlio goncral public is as ignorant of the facts iu the caso as it Li iUnlf. It brays on tho slnglo string of defiance to Senators Blaine, Hamlin nnd other Republican leaders, to produce tho specifications of Governor Gaisoelon's crimes against tlio rights of tho people. This, In tho fuco of tlio fact that by Bomo accident or nuothcr Ibeso (specifications havo already been printed in its so-called news columns, Wo Bay accident for tho reason tlmt tlioso col umns mo generally exclusively tlctotctl to tho publication of tho details of wicstling matches, abortion cases and tho proceedings of tho Now York police court. Hut no ono is deceived by its pnerilo course In fact, tho respectable portion of tho Democratic pross of tlio country is as loud in tho de nunciation of tho Gaiicelon conspiracy ns Senator Blaine lilmsolf. Scnatoii Voouuiiiis has "put his fool In "It njjnln" by his oxodns investigation Bchomo. Tho result of tlmt Inquiry will disappoint his expectations that Republi cans hero, In Indiana, Kansas, the South, or clsunhero, havo subscribed money or used any inducement to influence) tho blacks to einlgralo from their Southern homes, and nt tho samo tlnio tho fact 'will ho indubitably established that tho exodus la caused by contiuuod nnd prolonged un fair, arbitrary nud lulmuiau treatment of, tho blacks by their wlillo fcllow-citliscns of Hint section. These truths nro already well known to every intelligent man in tho country, nnd possibly to Mr. Voonncra himself. Ami it is also known that tho only moneys used or raised for tho benefit of theso fugitives from political persecution have been subscribed by chniitnhlo people to keep them from starving after thoy had begun their flight. Certainly, no 0110 ice ognled ns representing tho Republican parly lias over been engaged in encouraging tho hegim, nor has nnysuch encouragement over been required. In the end, Mr. Voou iiiiKs will cither purposely fall to ninko nuy report nt nil, or, making ono, will also lunko himself tho laughing stock of Iho country ut large. In short, lie hns gono off nt half-cock, and has assumed that tho lies of his party press about overrunning In diana with whplcsalo importations of Re publican voters nro Into.

At tho reception given by tho Commer cial Kxchauge last week in Philadelphia to General Grant Hint gentleman, in his ro Bponso to the welcomo tendered, mentioned sonio fncts iu connection with tlio consular system of this Government that it would be well for Congress to ponder. The Na tional Ru'UiiMCAN, in an editorial last spring upon our diplomatic and consular relntions, called nttontlon to tho defects in tlmtsystom which havo been rcforrcd to by General Grant. Ono In particular wo nro pleased to call nttoutiou to at this tlmo, nud that is tho meagro nnd insufficient sala ries that nro paid to many of theso polls of duty, whero n high order of ability and efficiency nro required. Tho duties of con suls are not generally understood. There is something more required of this class of public'uorvants than tho mora clearing of vessols, collecting fees, or scudln g n sick sailor to n hospital, nud ns toward secures talent commcusurato with itself, iu propor tion as n public servant has tho hopo of compensation, tho capacities secured nra graded very much thereby. The English consul whon appointed to a now country is tho mnnf louricr of commer cial enterprise, nud licnco caro Is nlwnys ox eiclscd iu selecting men of intelligence, sagacity and nbility, nud their compensation is graded to it fair slandnrd or thoy mo rec ognized us tho business agents for homo houses, whereby n salary or salaries aro se emed to thorn sufficient to sustain them nt their posts In a becoming manner. Iu this Government it is otherwise, und much to tho detriment of our commercial Interests. Tho meagre salaries allowed liavo oxcludod men of tulent from applying for thcfco posi tions, nud men of mediocre abilities, with medium or deficient energy nud outorprUc, nud in many instnucca of Indifferent char miters and reputations for luti-grity nud probity, hnvo been commissioned as our consuhu representatives abroad, Tho result hasbeen that for want of proper Intelligence, energy nnd care, the vnluahlo import tiado that wo should sccuro to our own marts is lost to us nud goes elsowhere. Our own exports nro not trafficked In by our cousulur agents, cither through ignornnco or indiffer ence, while Ihiropean nations luonopollo most of both these chmes of trndo and reap the benefits tlioreof. When our law-mnkcrs nro inspitedhyn higher purpose, nud can think of nud labor for something oho than tholr own ro-clco-tlon ; when they can opprcclato tho fact that there nro islands in tho oceans of both hemispheres thut uio fruitful nud produc tive j when they become alivo to tho idea that thcro nio ptobably somo parts of Al'ilcn, Asia and other sections of tho woild in which mutual boncflU might bo derived iroiiicqmmcrci.il relations nud leclproclty; when wo linvo muii Iu our National Legls latino who know nud undent ind theso necessities of policy nnd comuiRicIal suc cess i 11 our foreign relitlons, who will so curo to our diplomatic fccrvlropropor appro priations lo render it ofllclout and bntisfno tory, then wo may outortalu n hopo of Just reward, to our representatives abroad tho elovntiou of our consular system to a ro spcctnblo and usoful grade, and such ad vancement iu our commercial vfolfnro ns will ultimately Recur 0 to tho United States tho suptomnby of foreign trado, to which this country is entitled. Yet It does not appear tlmt tho stealing of tho Prcsldoncy of tho United Stutcj lias ruined tho Itcpnhllcnu parly, though thoy stole the voto of throo Slates In order toso euro that prize. lUehmond Dispatch. Yet, it does not nppcar that tho Republi cans Btolo tho Presidency of tho United States. Hayes had 183 -otcs nud was honestly nnd fairly elected In splto of the capture ofscvcrnl Republican Stales tlnoiigh Dc'mocrntlc methods. This cry of stealing the Presidency is nil nonsense, nnd the ' patcti should be nshnmed to reiterate It in tho face of this fact. Turn mo n llttlo notionnl In Massachu setts about tho rites of matrimony. A caso has just been decided iu tho Supreme court of that Stnto tinder the following circum stances: Hkkiiy 3. Munsok was indicted In Worces ter county for unlawfully cohabiting with Matcta A. Kato. Ho plcadod tlint thoy were husband nnd wlfo, Itnpponrcd that nt n public, rclialoui mooting held at tho Advent ClmpeJ In Worcester, July 18, 1870. Mukmin oicuplod tho pulpit, rend the Scriptutcs, gave out n text, mid "tnlked nwhllonbout rcrent an co." Ho thnn stepped down tho aisle, nnd Ws met by Miss Eaton. Thoy Joined hands, when bo sild: "In the presenco of Gon nnd those witnesses, I now tnke. this woman whom I hold by tho rlclit hand to bo my lawful weddod wife, to lava and to cherish till tho coming of our Lotto Jesus Christ, or till death do us pait." Thereupon she said: "And I now take this mnn to bo my law fully wedded husband, to love, rovcrenro nud obey him till tho Loitl) himself shall descend from Heaven with a shout, nnd tlio volco of tlio Arclmngol and with tho trump of Gon, or till death stinll ussovoi." Tho parties then bowed down while prayer was offered by tho groom. About fifty persons wltncssod tho corcmouy, hut no inagistmto or minister of the Gospel was present. Neither of tlio pi hi clpals was n Priond or Quaker. Thoy per funned tho lito in good fitlth, and believed It constituted a valid man Inge. At thu trial tho judgo Instructed tho jury that a lawful marrlago had not taken place, and 11 verdict of guilty wn' ' jndcrod. ViilMOXAT.. Dp. SI.
