Tlie Assassination of the Czar.
The whole civilized world will feel a
shock of horror at reading the account of
the assassination of the Czar of Russia,
which is contained in the dispatches to
day. It was one of those possible events
which have long been contemplated, but
the previous failures to consummate it has
lulled the sense of expectation, and now
the tragedy comes in an unsuspected mo
ment to horrify mankind, Atany will
look upon it as the legitimate outcome of
a vicious system of government, where
oppression and wrong find vent in deadly
rivalry and implacable revenge. It will
be difficult to trace its source. It may
have been the result of the blind mad
ness of Nihilism, or it may have been
the finale of a plot of other enemies. In
any aspect it is a horrible event for this
civilized age to contemplate, and will
have its effect in influencing the opinions
".n wiir thp hopft of hotter thines ladsis.
The madness of office-seeking has its
plainest exposition in the matter of the
solicitations for appointment to the
smaller missions abroad. There are a
myriad of these applications, and they
are coming in at the rate of hundreds
each day. For the most part the salaries
attached to these places are small, and the
duties are really contemptible. Why in
telligent gentlemen, who ought to earn
twice the pay in any honorable business
or profession at home, should want to
"banish themselves from America to
a place where everything is strange
and not of interest, and spend the
best years of their lives in solacing
themselves with a sinecure in lieu of use
fulness, is something past understanding.
Ah! there is no place like home.
Is it not rather a contemptible thing
for the American people to attach a sal
ary to the office of President and then
turn about and abuse him for using it as
he pleases? Whose affair is it but his
own? Why should he be accountable
to Tom, Dick, and Harry for the proper
use of his money ? They would consider
it singular impertinence for any one to
pry into their u-.e of their private funds.
The fact is, ex-President Hayes is not
susceptible to the charge of penurious
ncss. He was economical and frugal,
good old-fashioned virtues that are worthy
of more emulation than they get. And
perhaps he had good reasons for saving
his money. Whether he did or not,
however, is nobody's business. It was
Five ye Irs ago to-day the last arrest
and imprisonment of a private citizen
without due process of law was made by
the Congress of the United States. This
closed the long story of the arbitrary ex
ercise of this power, and marked the ad
vent of a broader citizenship. The occa
sion was the arrest and confinement
in a common jail of Hallet Kilbourn
"because he-declined to submit his private
papers or answer impertinent questions
about his personal affairs, as demanded
by an inquisitorial committee of that
Tiody. It is but recently that the Su
preme Court of the United States ren
dered its unauimous decision against the
authority by Congress ever again thus to
invade the personal liberty of the citizen.
The Republican, which has been exceedingly
bright and newsy under its new management, is
acquiring further distinction by the vigor andabil
ity of its editorial writing. A splendid leading ar
ticle w as that last Friday on the banks and their
greenbacks. That Secretary Windom is of the
eame opinion with The Republican is shown by
the decision published yesterday that the banks
cannot play fist and looe with their circulation.
We takeoff our hat to our Democratic
neighbor. It is one of the pleasant
amenities of journalism that a political
opponent recognizes the ability of The
Republican under its present manage
ment An Assistant Sect etary, who has been
in office three years, said on Saturday
that his patronage was so little that he
had three friends whom he wished to ac
commodate, and if he could do it by giv
ing his check for 1,000 in each case he
would gladly get out of it in that way.
Xo. doubt the President and others
having favors to bestow believe that they
have much to be.tr. But the man who
lias any soul in him, and for reasons
finds himself impelled to ask for an
office, is the true sufferer after all.

General'Malione's 'Vote To-Day?
Probablyho topic is being more widely
'tliscnssed to-day throughout the country
than the attitude of General Mahone,
Senator Jroui Virginia, toward the Re
publican party. This comes of the fact
that upon his vote depends the question,
likely to be decided to-tlay, of supremacy
in the United States Senate. The com
mittees and officers of that body are to be
appointed, nominally for the brief execu
tive session, but virtually and practically
for two years. The committees will either
be composed, each, of a majority of the
friends of the administration anxious for
its successor of a majority of its oppo
nents straining every energy to make it
a failure, on the ruins of which they hope
for a party triumph in 1834. To these
committees must be committed all legis
lation and executive nominations.
Hostile committees can delay action,
refuse to receive, and neglect to seek in
formation, and color with party bias their
consideration of and reports upon all mat
ters referred to them. Appropriations
for carrying on the Government, and for
maintaining its authority when resisted by
theBourbon .Democrai'yjas it has been in
the past two years, must depend on
whether General Mahone will aid the
Bourbons or the Government. The
power of the President to nominate faith
ful and patriotic district attorneys and
marchals, who can be confirmed without
the concurrence of the Bourbon Senators
from the States in which they are to
serve, must for two years depend on the
vote of General Mahone. The success or
failure of new measures that may be found
neces'sary for the further security of the
ballot-box and the protection of equal
political rights of the citizen will depend
on his vote.
How, then, will General 3Iahone vote?
He is the leader in Virginia of cer
tainly over thirtyHhousand independent
white voters of Democratic antecedents.
Besides these thirty thousand are many
others who voted for straight Republican
electors in November, but who did so
hoping thereby to defeat Barnum's ticket.
He is also the leader of the great body of
colored voters in Stale contests. These two
elements can control the election in Vir
ginia this year, and choose a United States
Senator. They can, in 1SS2, elect seven
out of nine Representatives in Con
gress. In 1884 they will have come
abreast with each other on na
tional interests, and the Solid South
will be broken. The thirty thousand are
not Republicans, but they are friends of
the Nation and its laws, and are willing
to support the new administration. They
are for an honest ballot and a fair count,
and have already compelled these in Vir
ginia. They are the blaek man's friends
and political associates. They are for
free schools, and against the whipping
post and the capitation tax, both of which
are political engines for disfranchising
colored voters. They are for our national
election laws, and all amendments calcu
lated to strengthen them. They are for
national force against the disobedient.
They are against the Democratic party
which is headed by William H. Barnum,
and led in the Senate by Bayard, Hamp
ton, Vance, and others like them. Yet
they are not Republicans.
Now, the question whether General
Mahone's friends are as goodcompany
for Republicans in Virginia as he would
be for Republicans in the Senate answers
itsolf. The lrave anil patriotic men who
have, under his lead, fought tlie Virginia
B ourbons are as worthy of the respect of
Republicans as he is. National suprem
acy, equal rights, and fair elections are
more desirable in Virginia than a party
name in a State campaign. General Ma
hone would be guilt' of a great crime
against tlie ideas on which the Repub
lican party is based if he should to-day
so act as to disband the thirty-two
thousand anti-Bourbon whites, without
whose continued aid all that lias been
gained in Virginia must be lost.
But how will General Mahone vote?
The estimate put upon his patriotism
and that of his followers by-the Republi
can Senators will settle that question.
They will, it is likeh', by some significant
action, give assurance to the anti-Bourbon
whites of Virginia that they are not out
laws in Republican estimation. Then
General Mahone can, without surrender
ing Virginia to the Bourbons, give his
vote against Bourbonism in the Senate as
he has done in the contests in his own
State. That he will so act there is no
reason to doubt. If Republican Senators
were to draw lines between Virginia loy
alists of to-day to the disparagement of
the thirty-two thousand white independ
ents, the Virginia Senator could not fol
low them, because to do so would be to
disband his party. His main desire is to
maintain the anti-Bourbon majority in
Virginia. This he can do if isely aided
by Republicans. This he could not do if
they failed to see the value of seeking his
advice on the subject.
If twenty independents held the bal
ance of power in the Senate, the twenty
would be consulted as to the organization.
We doubt not that the Republican Sena
tors will so-eonsult with General Mahone.
And so believing-, we feel sure that the
Republicans will vote with General Ma
hone, and that he will, with the hearty
concurrence and approval of his party in
Virginia, vote with the Republicans on
matters pertaining to the organization.
The Republican party, founded inlS56,
did not lower its standard when, in order
to save the Nation in 1S61, it struck hands
with patriotic Democrats who were will
ing to support the administration in coun
sel and fight the Nation's battles in the
The Republican party of 1SS0, saved
alive by a scant majority in New York
and a political miracle in Indiana, and
now having but 148 Representatives
against 145 of all others in the House,
and 37 against 39 of all others in the
Senate, will not lower its standard if
it strikes" hands for the execution of
the laws with the Virginia Independ
ent Senator and his two collcauges in
the lower House, as well as with the In
dependents from Missouri and Pennsyl-1
vania in the latter body. As in 1S61, the
welfare of the Nation is now at stake, and
the party can only succeed as the leader
of all loyal men on a broad platform. The
thirty-eight administration members in
the Senate and a Republican Vice-President
will not fail to control the organiza
tion of that body.

-. ' V jm & $- -
A1 question'has Tjeeh.jai.sed in a suit by
Gilmore & Co against ex-Secretary of the
Interior Schurz which promises, if
brought to trial, to throw light upon a
question which has long needed exact
definition. It is as to the status of claim
agents or attorneys before the Depart
ments. As far as our information goes,
there is no decision on record going to
the merits of this case. But the practice
of attorneys or agents before the Depart
ments is already a great matter, and is
increasing in extent daily. There is little
or no provision made by the rules of the
Departments for such practice, but it has
passed along so far as a matter of cour
tesy, and of the rights of clients to be
heard. But the question now arises, how
far shall the Departments go in giving
their time to the agents, and what rules
may a Secretary make as to debarring
an agent from practice? If it were
an exact case, the Department a
court, with the Secretary as judge,
he would undoubtedly have the right to
debar an attorney for cause ; but in this
and like instances, neither is the Secre
tary clothed with the functions of a judge
nor the agent with those of an attorney.
The' are judge and client by generally
accepted courtesy ; that is all." The Secre
tary, however, being intrusted with the
care and responsibility of affairs in bis
Department, has certainly the right,
without precise definition, to protect him
self and his Department from encroach
ments or from sinister designs, or from
the use of bad men. But this is a hard
matter to prove, and is subject to abuse
even by so high an officer of the Govern
ment as a Secretary. If the matter is left
to his decision he may use his power au
tocratically, and debar without sufficient
cause or without sufficient investigation.
He may in fact injure or ruin the reputa
tion of an agent or attorney at
will, and do great injustice to
a claimant simply because of his
(the claimant's) connection with an
objectionable attorney. But from the
Department's side of the question there
are further considerations. A large share
of the claims brought before them are for
reconsideration of cases passed upon. It
is presumed that they are settled, though
in many cases they are not. But an at
tornej' comes for a Te-onsideration fre
quently without further evidence, and
not only consumes time and study on the
part of officials, but consumes the time
and labor which is not contemplated in
the provision made for carrying on the
business of the Departments. Most De
partments have too little skilled clerical
force, and what they have are given upon
the basis of doing current workx To de
mand, therefore, that much of their time
should be yielded to back work is to ask
that the Secretary waive the interests
with which he is especially charged in
favor of those which Congress has not
provided for or has detailed no clerks to
do. Now, how far does the judgment
of the Secretary in such instances as
these find the support of law? The
fact is, the whole of this subject
needs and deserves the serious considera
tion of Congress. It would be of un
doubted advantage, for instance, if the
undecided work of each Department were
made a special business, with an assign
ment of clerks for carrying it on. - Time
and labor would be saved in this way
and much dissatisfaction he avoided.
But these thoughts are only partial in the
consideration of this subject. It is one
that must be brought to the attention
of Congress sooner or later, and have defi
nite boundaries fixed as to the rights of
both parties in the issue. In the mean
time, it is a matter of such interest to
attorneys that we open our columns to

AN EXTRA SESSION.
Tlie VIcirs of a Republican GoQffi'CSH
man.. To the Editor of Tlic llepiiblican :
An extra session of Congress seems to
me to be a matter of very great importance to the
country, and necessarily so to the Republican party.
It is well known that a funding bill could have
been passed through the last Congress at the extra
ordinary low rate of three per it nt. Interest but for
the stupid, if not malignant, stipulation contained
in that "fifth section." But, as usual, the Demo
cratic party could not resist their irrcpret-sible pen
chant for asinine blundering,' aud the bill ery
properly failed. The money markets of the world
were never in so favorable a condition as now to
furnish the Government with immense sums
at merely nominal rates. It is not at
all likely "that" this anomalous financial
condition will continue for any very
great length of time, and if our party, with the
Sower now to fund this seven hundred millions of
ebt at three per cent., should loiter along until
the exigencies and demands of an active and
speculative trade shall double tlie present current
rates for money, the country will not fail to hold
the Republican party to strict accountability for
the consequences of failure. A second reason,
which might properly come first, is in the impor
tance to the Nation of having the Election Commit
tees immediately organized and bent South to
thoroughly investigate the many contested cases
for seats which will arise in the Forty-seventh
Congress. The Republican majority will be un
comfortably small in the next Congress, if the ten
to twenty fairlv-electcd Republican members from
the hull-dozed districts are denied their seats. I
cannot believe that a Republican Congress will fail
or refuse to furni.h its own true and faithful friends
in said districts with all reasonable and proper
lawful help, and that, too. at the beginning rather
than at the end of the sessiou. Let us have the
investigations all made and ready to be reported
immediately upon, the convening of the regular
session of Congress, aud then, we will have the
benefits of all the votes -and assistance of all our
members. A third reason is to be found in the
necessity for a deliberate and searching discussion
of " the apportionment bill " There are very grave
and vital questions connected with that subject
which, should be slowly, cautiously, and
thoroughly discu-sed, and It wera wise if an
unusual deliberation and investigation be given
to that very wide and all.pervadiug question.
A fourth reason ot generally understood by onr
friends in the North is to be found in the condi
tion of things South, notably in Mississippi. There.
isTiot a Jair-minded, unprejudiced, well-informed
man in the United States but knows that.givena
free, fair, and untra'innieled ballot, Mississippi is a
Republican State. The colored people are in a
large majority, and, not bull-dozed, are all Repub
licans. There is also a large and growing white
Republican vote in that State, which, coupled
with the colored, makes a fair, honest, and un
questioned majority. But the w hole country knows
what has been accomplished by the "Mississippi
plan." An investigation now will send some
of the bull-dozing Congressmen of that laith
to the rear, aud give many of our friends
In that State fresh heart and hope, and infuse into
many faithful men whorare beginning to grow
despondent at the long, dark Democratic night
which has enshrouded them in silent gloom. Be
sides, there is to be a State election held there next
autumn for Governor, judges, minor offices, &e.,
and these investigations now will almost certainly
enable our party, aided by the Independents of
that State who are tired of Democracy, to carry
Governor Alcorn into power, and with linn
a Legislature and other officers, who will
send to Washington, alter a while, a- United
States Senator in place of Senator I.amar.
These reasons alone, to hay nothing ol having
the organization of both Houses in our possession,
are suitieicnt, in my judgment, to warrant aye, to
demand the convening of an extra session at the
earliest povsible period after all our present va
cancies shall havp been tilled. VerJ- respectfully,

To the Editor of The EepuWican:
Your New "Orleans correspondent, in
giving a sketch of the Federal office-holders of
Louisiana was sadly mistaken in regard to the
character of Surveyor-General Brewster. The
term carpet-bagger cannot be justly applied to Mr.
Brewster, who has resided with his family in Lou
isiana for sixteen years, haiing selected that Statt
for a home soon after being disabled by wounds
received in battle while a soldier in the Federal
army. In 166S he w as elected to tlic house of rep
resentatives of his State, his name having been
placed on the ticket without his knowledge orcon
sent. At the expiration of his term he was re
elected, and in 1S72 he was called to the speaker's
chair without an hour's notice of his election. The
following year hejvas elected to the State senate,
and in 1876 he wus chosen presidential elector. Mr.
Brewster is now holding the position of surveyor
general, receiving his first appointment from Gen
eral Grant, and during the last session of Congress
he was reappointed without solicitation on his
part, but, like many others, he went, over with
out action having been taken npon his nomina

To the Editor of The Republican :
Your article- on "Historic Halls" in
last Saturday's Republican has the following
It was here when, in later days, William J.
Brown, a Representative from Indiana, sought to
obtain the coveted prize of the speakership by
bribing his brother members; and, amid a scene
of the wildest excitement, was indignantly ex
pelled from the House.
This is a mistake. The Abolitionists held the
balance of rower between the Whigs and Demo
crats, and it was charged that Mr. Brown had
promised them prominent places on rommittees
should he be elected. This aroused the Democracy
and they abused him, but he was not expelled.

To the Editor oftheBepubUcan:
The speech of Senator David Davis,-of
Illinois, in the Senate Saturday, Is such a fine
specimen of senatorial logic and political wisdom
and profundity as to deserve special attention.
The Senator first explained that he was elected
to tlie Senate free from politics, committals, and
personal obligations, and is therefore entitled to
occupy an independent position between the two
parties, and consequently feels compelled to vote
to maintain tlie present Democratic partisan or
ganization, though the same is not agreeable to
his taste or judgment. Y.

church, if I went to sleep, I was snapped on the
head, while the deacon near me was allowed to
slumber. Then I was taken home and allowed the
privilege of learning my catechism. Laughter.
If I did not know it I could not have my dinner,
and you all know what a Sunday dinner is. Loud
laughter. I have given a good many hard knocks

of the Sunday dinners of my boyhood. Charles

This road will furnish the most direct outlet to the
sea for the grain, coal, c-, of the Baltimore and Ohio,
Pennsylvania Central, and other important lines.
It will furnish an important linlc hi the chain of
communication between the North and Sooth, short
ening the time on through travel about six hours. The
company will establish a line of steamers to run be
tween Point Lookont and Norfolk In connection with
the road. It will hold tlie key to the oyster trade of

and good assets. Its real estate on the line of the road
and Its rights of. way paid for and on record. It is ab
solutely free from debt, excepting tlie bonds now of
fered, the entire Issoo of which has been placed in onr
hands in trust in such form that we are enabled to

issued there shall be completed and equipped at least
one mile of road.
All the bonds which we were authorized to offer at

the following letter from the president of the road:
A. W. I3IOCK & CO.,
7 EXCHANGE COURT, NEW YORK.
Office op the
Washington City and Point Lookoct R. R.,
Washington, February 25, 1SSU
Messrs. A. W. DIMOCK & CO.:
GnNTLKitEN This company holds a judgment
against the Southern Maryland Railroad of oer ?0,
000, which, of course, underlies any mortgage that can
be now created. It also holds its obligations in the form
of notes for a large amount.
Its other debts, many being in the form of jiids
nients, areesthnated to amount to considerably OVER
A QUARTER OF A MILLION Or DOLLARS.
Not a day's work has been done on the road for
many years: even its rights of way. If It has any, are
not of record ; Its partial gradiux of many years ago
has become comparatively worthless through lape
of time, and there is small indication of Us present
object extending beyond the negotiation of its bond.
