The people care not so much icho their political leaders are, as how they lead. Very much of the apparent opposition to leaders in the Republican party is the re suit of jealousy on the part of rural aspi rants for the high places in the party or ganization. AS a rule the party in Penn sylvania since the advent to power of the Republicans, has been well managed and great credit is due to the Camerons for the wisdom displayed in their leadership. The young Senator's methods are some times distasteful, but no one can truth fully say he is corrupt or that he ever champions the cause of dishonest men, in putting forward candidates for the state ollices. Independents and " machine men " alike court his favors and implore his aid in securing success, both lot nom inations and elections. Mr. Cameron was afforded a most conspicuous evidence of confidence in his leadership when, after the bitter contention at Chicago a year ago last summer he was unanimausly rec ommended for member of the National Committee by the Pennsylvania delega tion. The greatest men in the party all over the Union seek his counsels and fol low his leadership, although he is not elo quent but " slow of speech." It is very doubtful whether good would come from deposing him, and the Independents would accomplish more by directing their efforts to a reformation of the Senator's political manners and methods than in endeavoring to put men of less experience and political sagacity and integrity in his place. Should a merchant who has ;i balance at his banker's sulllcieut to meet all his notes and bills as they mature, but which is bringing him no interest, borrow at interest for long terms to meet his obli gations, in order that lie may maintain that balance intact? Very few persons would hesitate to pronounce a merchant who borrowed money under such circum stances as unwise. Should the govern ment ot the United States, then, in order to meet the payment of the arrears of pensions borrow money at interest when the surplus revenue can be made sullieient to meet those payments? We think not. Let us pay as we iro. Interest is a sad eater up of revenue. It is perfectly pro per to borrow money for public improve ments, which are in their nature produc tive, as tending to increase the wealth of the country. Hut the ordinary expendi tures of the government should be met in the ordinary way, and, that |is from the taxes of the year. The princi ple of borrowing money to pay the ordin ary obligations of the government is wrong. Its direct tendency is to increase expenditures and to lead to extravagance and corruption. It is easy to be liberal if we do not feel the drain.— New Turk (f raphic. At the annual meeting of the National Council of the Union League of America, Philadelphia, Wednesday, the officers of fast ycsi were re-elected, Resotutions were passed in favor of a protectee tariff, respect for the memory of Garllelu and expressing confidence in the ability and patriotism of Arthur. The frosts and tornadoes did not de crease the Florida orange crop for the incoming year. The production below the frost line will be enormous. The Florida orange is only equalled by the product from California. The planting of trees increases every year. Four hun dred acres are enough for the growth of 75,000 One grove is reported to have borne 1,800,000 oranges, the crop selling for $35,90(1. The fruit will be in market plentifully about the first of the year. iwiip —i~irgrT- No Preparation on earth equals ST. .TACOBS OIL A3 n. SA rr- SULLK, SlMi'l.K and CIIBAP Kxtcrnal Remedy.

Purine: the year 1882 THE TRIBUNE hopes to em ploy with increasing success the woVk and the methods which have won for it so large a measure of popular approval. It has attained, and means never to lose'the high standard of success which was aimed at by its founder the largest circulation among the best people. So large a circulation and one so widely distributed over the entire territory of the Nation has never been attained by any other newspaper in the United States. We'accept this fact as the verdict of the American people upon the conduct and character of the TRIBUNE. The po sition it occupies could never have been gained nor retained but by pre-eminent merits as a newspaper as an organ of sound opinion and an advocate of just public measures. In short the TRIBUNE will as heretofore continue to be the medium of the best thou ght and tin* voice of the best conscience of the time; will keep abre ist of the highest progress,favor the freest discu ssion, hear all sides, appeal always to the most enlighten, ed intelligence and the purest morality, and refuse peremptorily to cater to the tastes of the vile or the prejudices of the ignorant. The well-known special features of the TRIBUNE will be carefully maintained. Its Agricultural De partment will remain as it is, the fullest and best. The Household and Young Folks' Departments, the literary, scientific and religious features, the stand ard market reports will all be kept up and extend ed as opportunity may serve.
