The largest paper in Ashtabula, printed en-tirely at home. Qflce 126 Main Street. ASHTABULA. - - - OHIO. Friday Morning, Jan."25th, 1878. Louisiana is an advocate of a tariff tax on gucrar and rice. Gold on Tuesday last touched 10l the lowest point yet. The career of our Senator Stanley llatthawa is rather of the pillor of cloud description. Senator MorrUsey, who has bten near death's door is said to be grad ually improving in health. Secretary Thompson has been ask ed to send a man-of-war to the Ama zon, to assist American commerce there. It is proposed to increase the sala ries of the Supreme Judges in Ohio to $5,000 per year, which would be little enough. The Democrats of the House it is said do not favor an investiga tion of the Chandler allegations in relation to the alleged bargains. The House, it seems, did not care to listen to the woman suffragists at the bar of that body, and the dust of the skirts of these suffragists was, no doubt, shaken off against those veritable sinners. There is a ferocious strife going on in Pennsylvania over a bill for free pipe laying for the transmis sion of oil to the seaboard, which is advocated by the producers as a re lief they claim from the monopoly of the Standard Oil Company. The latest enterprise of Jay Gould appears to be to steal a portion of the land-grant of the Northern Pacific Railroad, nd to prevent the further extension of that enterprise by mak ing the traffic of Oregon tributary to the Union Pacific. Gen. Grant has sent home a pack age of the gifts he has received abroad. The gold boxes presented by by Glasgow and Ayr and the Ed enburgh silver box are among them. Then there are gold, silver and bronze medals, illuminated address es, badges and decorations. At Mrs. Hayes's reception last Saturday, it is related that she asked a little girl what her 'same wns. "Dora," replied the child. "Well, Dora," said Mrs. Hayes, "I am gld to see you." "You'd be gladder," answered Dora, "If you knew I was from Ohio." And the kind lady en joyed the small joke. Ex-Senator B. F. Wade and more than a hundred other citizens of Ohio have signed a memorial which has been sent to the Senate, asking that the statute of limitations in regard to pensions may be repealed, in or der to enable deserving soldiers to obtain their dues, notwithstanding that they may have failed to apply for pensions within the time fixed by law. The Pope is evidently declining, and the preparations for ths ap proaching Consistory are making with anxious care, even to the point of setting up a bed for the dying pontiff in the Consistorial chamber. He is alleged to take the dppest in terest in the election of his successor, - and is resolved not to die nntil he has filled the eight vacancies in the College of Cardinals with men who can be relied on. Refugee Turks from Adrianople which the Russians have entered are pouring in herds into Contanti nople in the last stages of destitu tion arid suffering. They are trans ported in open cattle cars, men, wo men and children, scantily clothed, without food or shelter, they are frenzied by exposure, suffering and despair. Unable to bear their suffer ings numbers are found dead in the cars. The flight seems to be one of the most unfortunate episodes. of the Russian envasion. Secretary Schnrz's move of last summer, in consolidating the pension agency districti, was recognized as a step in the right direction, economy in the service and making fraud and pilfering less easy of accomplish ment. Now the "foreigner" favors ' another step, by having all pension disbursements made directly from Washington, doing away with all of fices outside of the capital. This, it fs claimed, would save some two hundred thousand dollars annually, an item 'sufficient of itself to justify the change. Austria, it is said, has already waived her objections to Russian oc cupation of Constantinople, and the English peace party is beginning to educate British public sentiment to a similarly tolerant view of the mat ter, the Times having editorially ex pressed the opinion that if the Rus sians entered the Turkish capital the British Empire would not necessarily crumble to bits. There are evident ly a large number of Englishmen who have no desire whatever for u tus sle with the veteran Russian armies. Jf our Republican friends had any choice among the several well-known candidates for the U. S. Senate, they are pigeon livered and fear to make it known, lest somebody's feelings ghould be hurt, over a complimenta ry vote. If they bad a choice, and Garfield is head and shoulders above them all, why would it not have been well to have given an expres sion? Mr. Garfield was magnani mous to yield. to the President's pre ference and stand aside for Stanley Matthews,when the indications were that be oould have commended the Tote; but instead of this the Repub lican vote was cast for blank.

Prloe 88 cent per f - By the death of Victor Emmanuel, his son, Humbert Renier Charles Em manuel Jean Marie Ferdinand Eu gene, becomes King of Italy. He was born on the 4th of Marvh, 1844 While only a boy he was the close companion of his father in some of the exciting political and military events of the earlier part of bis reign. During the war of 1868 he commanded a division, and fought bravely but without success to save the day at Custozza. In April, 1868, he married his cousin, Marguerite Marie Therese, daughter of his father's brother, Ferdinand, Duke of Savoy. He has been described as of a sedate and almost saturnine tem per, very much unlike his father in character and conduct; but he is ex ceedingly popular, nevertheless, with the Italian people. The united action of the banker, of N.Y. and other Eastern ciues,Iast week, promises to raise a new aud interesting question in political sci ence. The report of the committee adverse to the silver legislation was unanimously adopted; our readers are familiar with some of the reasons in the presentation of which the com mittee has been anticipated by the press. But the body did not stop with the appointment of a committee to memorialize Congress against the proposed legislation. It was also authorized to enter into correspond ence with all the financial institutions of the country, and to prepare meas ures to be submitted to them to se cure, as soon as possible, a gold re sumption. One of the measures in contemplation is indicated by the resolution already taken by some of them: not to advance money except on a gold basis. If this resolution is universally, or even generally, adopt ed and rigorously carried out, it is difficult to see what is to prevent re sumption on that basis from being at once an accomplished fact, since the great staples of the country cannot be moved without such advances from the banks. If there should be a con test between Congress and capital we may perhaps look for a demon stration, whn-h to even the brain of the average silver legislator, there may appear a limit to the power of Congress which cannot well be passed. The defense made by Mr. S. J. Tilden to the suit brought against him to recover arrears of unpaid in come tax is a purely technical one. In regard to the claim for the year 1861, the judge sustained the de murrer to the right of the Govern ment to enforce payment. In regard to the claim of other years, which rest on the law of 1862 and on the action of the Assessors appointed uudar that law, argument is to be resumed on Saturday of the present week. Mr. Tilden's counsel contend that the act of the Assessors iu fix ing or accepting the amount of tax able income partook of the complet ed character of a judicial decision which was binding on the Govern ment, and is not subject to review. This theory would, of course, bar the Government from attempting to recover any arrears of income tax which were found, on evidence sub sequently obtained, to have been il legally diverted from the Treasury. The attorneys for the Government maintain that the act of the Asses sore was of a purely ministerial char acter, and as the Statute of Limita tions cannot be pleaded against a claim of the Government of the United States, that the errors made by the Assessors are opento review in the courts. The death of Mr. Denton, of Del aware County, Iowa says the N. Y. Tribune recalls a story which he used to telL In the early days of the Illinois Central Railway, the line was not fenced, and one day two oows belonging to a Methodist cler gyman were killed. Being sued for damages the ' company resolved to make a test case of it. The presi dent of the road directed Mr. Een ton to take $500 in gold and go to Springfield and retain Abraham Lin coln, whom he knew well, for the company. Mr. Lincoln replied to his request, "I am sorry you didn't come yesterday, Nick, for I have been retained by the preacher and his friends." Denton explained ful ly the importance of the case to the company, and then, pulling two buckshin bags filled with gold out of his pockets, he put them down on the table before the lawyer, with a startling chink, saying,"Mr. Lincoln, the president of the company author, ize me to hand you this retainer of $500 to take our case." Mr. Lincoln jumped to his feet, flushed with an ger. "Nick Denton," he said, "I have given my - promise to that preacher and his friends, and the 111 ioois Central hasn't monev enough to buy me away from his side. I don't know that I shall ever get a dollar from him but I'll do my best to make your company pay for those cows." Denton said he never felt so mean and small in his life as he did at that moment. And- in 1860, though a Democrat, he used to say, during the Presidential campaign, that Lincoln was the noblest man in America. The Senator from Florida who wreaked his financial opinions upon his colleagues the other day, steins to have for one of them the great American idea that it is the (jold and not the paper that has been going up and down all these years, lie wants gold demonetized because it is so unxtable. If Mr. Jones would exchange his seat in the Senate for one on a see-saw, for which he is apparently better fitted, he would perceive that the ground didn't move, although it seemed to; and he might then understand how it was that gold was stable and paper did the we-sawing. Stanley has solved some very important geogr&phioal problems, but there is a great task yet for him to tackle. On, Stanley, on, and bring us some tidings of Charlie Sou! and the old man Lord. A X From the N. Y. Times. THE PRESIDENTS MISTAKE. Both before and after the inaugur ation of President Hayes we repeat edly pointed out that, if any effective work were to be done in the way of reforming the civil service, it was in dispensable that some general plan of procedure should be at once agreed upon and impartially enforced in all cases. We endeavored to show that if any considerable number of ap pointments should be made before the adoption of such a plan, the diffi culty of finally putting it in force would be greatly increased. Vacan cies would occur which must be filled in some way or other, and if no plan of impartial selection should be in force, the only alternative would be to fill them in the old hap hazard way. Better judgment might be used and better selections made, but the method of selection would be substantially the same as before, and would be open to the same objections. In the absence of nny impartial method of determining the merits of candidates, the President,or the head of the department exercising the ap pointing power, could rely only on his individual judgment or the state ments of interested parties, and mis takes would necessarily be made. Ami, worse than all, the Administra tion, having proceeded for a while according to these bad old methods, would become in some degree com mitted and reconciled to them, and possibly less earnest in its desire to change them. More than ten months have passed nee the inauguration without the adoption of any comprehensive meas ure of civil service reform, aud the results which we predicted would fol low such a failure have become . un pleasantly conspicuous. No one will refuse to accord to the if resident high motives and sincerity of purpose. There has been no such sweeping change of public officers and no such swine-like scrambling for place as usually marks the advent of a new Administration. Despite many un worthy and injudicious appoint ments, the character and tone of civ il seryice have, on the whole, probi bly improved rather than deteriorat ed under his charge. And yet, while all this is freely admitted, it cannot be denied that the cause of civil ser vice reform, as a permanent aud sys tematic policy ,has suffered much det rimeut,and that the friends of reform are greatly disheartened. The explanation of this seeming paradox is simple enough. 1 he 1 res ident has forgotten, or has not. learn ed, that the interference of Congress men iu appointments does not con stitute the whole evil of the civil ser vice, but that all appointments for personal reasons are to be condemn ed, whether the person gratified be Congressman, Cabinet omcer,or even President. The greatest defect of the President's position is that he has endeavored in a spasmodic- way to prevent the interference of t on gretsmen, while he has failed to sub stitute anything torit.except his own judgment or whim, or the reeom inundations of favored friends. The result is, that he has alienated Con gress and laid himself open to the charge of using the public service to reward his personal friends and ad hereuts, without in any degree ad vancing the cause of real reform. If appointments are to be distributed on personal grounds, we can see no reason why Congressmen should not claim their share. As a class, they are doubtless able to give the Presi dent much information atout ap pointments, while their local person al interests will in most instances prevent them from recommending absolutely unfit persons for the pub lic service. Of course they will fa vor only persons devoted to their own fortunes, or whose appointment will advance their interests, but this in itself is no greater evil than the appointments should be destriouted in the interest of a coterie surround ing the President, or eten of the President himself. Already the com plaint is rife that the only difference between the new order or things and the old is, that, whereas formerly the appointments were bestowed upon the friends of the President and of Congressmen, they are now bestow ed on the friends of the President alone. Unfortunately, there are many facts which support this view, but even if there were not, so long as tha President is unable to point to an impartial system oi selection from which his own personal wishes, as distinguished from public considera tions, are excluded as absolutely as those of Congressmen, he cannot pro tect himself from such accusations. The. appointing power is not a mere personal perquisite, but a sacred pub lic trust, to be administered in the interests of the whole people, and it is as much a perversion of it to use it to reward the friends of the rresi dent as to reward the friends of Con gressmen. So far as the President is concerned,ciil service reform, like charity must "begin at home." It requires not only the destruction of Congressional dictation, but toe self abnegation of the President. It de mands that his own personal prefer ence and desires shall be subordinat ed to the public good. It requires him to protect the public service,not only from the assaults of others, but also from his own personal aims and caprices. In short, like all noble causes, it requires not only courage, but tne highest devotion to sen-sue rifice. To secure this end, an impar tial system of selection, which shall regard only the fitness of the candi date for the place sought, is indis pensable. In the failure to adopt such a system lies the weekuess of the President s position a position which we firmly believe might by this time have been m:ide impregna ble had the proper course been pur sued. . .. The Louisiana Returning Board, which the Standard says plead guilty, have peti tioned for the removal of the case against them to the U. S. Circuit Court, on the ground that the law authorizing the drawing of the juries in and for the parish of Orleans in criminal cases operates injus tice to the accused, in so much as it places in the hands of officers authorized hy law to draw juries powers which enable them to draw such juries as they may see prop per, and that in this instance, out of the whole venire, there is not a single colored man, and for the further reason that by virtuo of the existence of great public prej udice iu the jaiinds of the while population of that city the officers have willingly or unwillingly drawn such a jury as are be lieved to be impressed by this prejudice. Judge Whitaker, ordered the application to be filed, and fixed the case for argu ment on the 24th inst. One of the coun sel gave the Attorney General notice that he would apply for a commission to take testimany of absent witnesses on behalf of the aooused, to which objection was made chiefly on account of time. So we see there is a colored man iu the brush heap. I'nvv y.. hrk napkail. bv whinh a nleur JM'J 1 " , j case of conviction was to be made morally sure. There, however, seems to be some Uttle show of listening to justice by tbi consent of court to take into consideration the application for a change of venue, af fording a chance, though perhaps a slim one, to obtain a fair and unprejudiced triaL Comgeess. We give below an extract from the regular weekly correspondence of the Ncrwalk Ct. Gazette, whose senior editor is in W:ishington, and occupies a prominent place among the correspondents of the CapitoL His letters are always of the highest interest, and the theme of the present will commend it to the reader's at tention. The past week in Congress has been fruit ful of no legislative results, and the only subjects of interest to the outside public considered by either House have been the funeral eulogies pronounced. Pitting tri butes of respect were paid the memories of Senators Bogy of Missouri and Morton of Indiana. There is an unpleasant feature of sameness in the usual run of these fun eral performances, but in the case of Sena tor Morton, the eulogies from friends and political foes were mainly of an unusual degree of sincere and unaffected earnest ness and eloquence. The addresses of Sena tors Colliding and Booth were 'conceded to be the two models of beauty, fervor and ex cellence. They both are'spoken of as hiv ing reached the purest and sublimest heights of high oration. The American school boy of the hereafter will no doubt memorize these beautiful compositions and declaim them to admiring visitors on school exhibition days. But aside from their oratorio beauty there was a true feel ing and pathos la the utterances, touching the hearts and moistening the eyes of all listeners. There is a deep touch of sadness in these eulogistic occasions to one who has for any considerable time been accus tomed to listen to the debates in Congress. The fall of our public men by the wayside is indeed pathetic, and the "Congressional burying-ground" has the largest tenantcy of any cemetery here. Within the recol lection of yonr correspondent two genera. tions of statesman have passed away. Betts of Connecticut and of Korwalk, died dur ing his senatorial term. Clay and Calhoun of the older regime, we saw laid out in death, while Webster, Mangum, Benton, Corwin, Butler, Davis, Huntington aud others died at their homes or among kin dred. Then, of a latter day, are Douglass, John Davis, Baker, Collamer, Foote, Fes senden. Hale and a hoe of bright names adorning the annals of the nation's Senate, Within the recollection of the youngest reader and coming to the present may be added those of Sumner, Buckingham, Garret Davis, Nye, Ferry, Wilson, Bogy and Morton. Cleveland Herald Despatch. Senator Plumb on the Civil Service. Senator Plumb, of Kansas, has addreesed a letter to the President on the subject of civil service. The Senator believes that the terms of service of all employes, except the judiciary, should be limited to four years; that selection should be governed by character ana efficiency, and that an portionments should be made according to population, care being exercised not to give tne section nearest tne seat or uovern nient an undue . preponderance of em ployes. On the relations between the President, Senators, and Representatives, he discourses in the following language That members of Congress should not be permitted to dictate appointments is read ly conceded. The President and heads of department are responsible for the char acter of their appointees, and in selecting them they should avail themselves oi the best advice obtainable. Thev must rely to a large extent upon the representations of others, as they themselves can have no per sonal knowledge of applicants in a great majority of instances. This is more espec ially true with respect to new and remote states, and hence tne manliest propriety, indeed the absolute necessity, such infor mation as they may feel disposed to rely upon ; otherwise these States would be very inadeauatelv reDresented in the assign ment of official positions. The leading idea, However, that tne prerogative ot se lection rests exclusively with the ftxecu tive Department of the Government, and that no dictation from any quarter can be tolerated, should, under no circumstances, be lost sieht of. If, indeed. Congress hou Id think it wise to perfect such legislation as would relieve its members from importuni ty and remove from the minds of the peo ple the impression that practically the task of selection is really imposed upon their immediate representatives, such a result could scarcely be otherwise than welcome to those representatives, under tne pres ent system they can hardly decline to be the medium through which the wishes of constituents are made known to the Exe cutive. Mexico appears to be turning her troops to good account by engaging them in ditching and road making. The death sentence of four of the mur derous "Mollis Ma'guires" have been con firmed by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, and nothing but executive interfer ence can save them from, the gallows. The annual inoome of the Church of England is authoritatively stated to be, $33,000,000. And the church has 16,000 religious edifices, including 30 cathedrals, 10,000 glebe-houses, 31 Episcopal palaces, and 1,000,000 acres of land, much of it in good condition for tillage. i The culture of coffee in southern Cali fornia is becoming profitable. The plant grows as vigorously as in the coffee coun tries of South America, and yields a bean of a strong aromatic flavor. The central and southern portions of the State are the regions peculiarly favorable. If Hon. Stanley Matthews could secure a foreign mission for Governor Tom Young it would take one obstacle out of the Congressional road iu. the Second Dis trict. But then there are several ether Republicans and more Democrats that would have to be cared for before he oould have very encouraging prospects. ' The receipts from premiums and rents at the annual sale of pews at Plymouth Church show a decrease of about $10,000 as compared with last year. Whether this result is due to the hard times of the pres ent, or to Mr. Beeoher's belief in the easy times of the future is a question which Will be variously viewed: ' We plucked the other day a limb from a tea plant which has been growing for fif teen years past, in the garden of Francisco Moreno, Esq.
