THE II ERA L D
TBOV. UOm f KBBDAIl' 28. 1873." QieslUiablr H'($doH. - There it tome talk of ibe pcooral aa- eembly adjourning soon not tine die, but with iew to meeting again next winter. If oar representatives will take into con sideration Iho Teelings of tlieir cunslitu cnta on this point, tlicjr will oppote any nch thing as an extra session ol the leg latnre; tbo people arc opposed to extra, when the cost is so great. Retrench ment is now tbeir watchword. It i on this grouod that tbe moat strenuous oppo sition to a constitutional convention is based not that our ragged concern can't he bettered, for we all know it can; but in our prctcnt financial condition, it may be tolerated for awhile longer by making few more amendments. What the massos want now is, for the representa tives to rush business at the capital and cet through with it. The snail-gait that has characterized the general assembly the present eeision is not in accordance with their ideas of retrenchment. Much time has been spent, while but little work has been accomplished, aud 63 far as we have notiucd no very important mutters seem to ocdupy the attention of our stolons. If there aro at.y, let tbera be attended to immediately, and questions of minor importance postponed, if neces sary, for the next legislature to worry over, lietter prolong th present session a few days than incur the expenses of an extra one nuxt winter, with mileage for another journey to Jefferson and home thro wn lu. Settle yourselves to work, gentlemen, and finish up, and let your work be so perfected that it won't re quire additional legislation to undo what you may do. A Man may Smile and be a Villain. Poor "Sinilcr" Colfax I lie was so blinded by the charge that ho was im plicated in the Credit Mobilier specula lions, and the statement of Ames that he bad been paid a 81.200 dividend on his atock of that wonderful ring within a ring, that tho world swam before his eyes, and he couldn't fee his way out of the mist that enveloped him. Was it strange, then, that he should 'jump out of the frying pan into the Oro '(" Poor "Smilcr," that last leap has scorched him. lie has certainly nccountcd for his bank deposit of 81,200 about the date Ames says he paid him that amount in dividends on his Credit Mobilier stock. 3lr. Nesbitt the gentleman is dead now gave it to him; that is, l,e pavo him 51,000 of it. Further investigation has proven that Mr, Neobitt gave him 81.000 at four different times, making 81,000, which tho "Smilcr" said nothing about. Mr. Colfax would havo us believe that these were friendly gifts tho outpour ings of a generous heart to tho man it udmircd. It leaks out, though, that the deceased Nehbitt and friend of Mr. Col lax w is a "large sta ioner, and had heavy contrucls with tho post-office department ; that previous tj tho election of Collax to rho epoakerbhip of tho lower branch of Congress, when he was a member ol that body, he was chairman of tbe bouse post offico committee, and theroforo in a position to perform valuablo service for Mr. Nesbitt." Schuyler Colfax is Vice President of the United States, be is a Keutlemaa of high moral ideas, an ex ample for tho members of the "Young Men's Christian Association," ho is a uper loyal Republican, and above all a professed christian and pattern for the youth of our coootry. He Bays he didn't receive 81,200 from Ames, and of oourso everybody bolievos him, although Ames' little diary has it recorded against biro. He would have us believe that the 81,000 ho received from his "friend" .Nesbitt was a perfectly natural gift, but doesn't mention tlio other 83,000. Of oourso no ono doubts tho word of our uhristian model, tho Vice Presidont. It is troe, circumstantial evidence is against him, and tbo more be explains himself tho moro tho people don't understand him, and tho more he bcooracs entangled in tho network of his own weaving ; but thou be says he is innocent. So has said uanya criminal just beforo ho was bung. Tho Credit Mobilier investigation com mittee has made its report, and rccom mends Hut Ames and .Brooks be x polled, tno tirst because be is guilty of Roiling atoolc ol the C. M. to members of Congress, fot'tho purpose of iufluoucing their votes. Now, if Ames sold this stock to tho members, they arc aa guilty 4 be is; but the committee seen to "see through a glass darkly." , There ie a atrong feeling in Congress agnidst tho report of tho 0. M. com mittee, end it is not likely Amee,.rooks, i'f anybody elso will bo eipelled. It is thought that tho report is loo harsh for omo and too mild for others. That is certainly tho caso, but can't tho honost members eveo up this thing a little, and rxpol Iho whole set of O. 31. gamblcra? J Ms a disgraco to lot (beta romiia, Tbe fff M )f lite Mate. Wbilo ou general assembly is cogita ting over the doubtful wisdom uf adjourn ing at an early date and proviso? for an extra session next inter, wo think it would bo boiler and sounder jadgmcut on its fart to cuacf, and that speedily, some law by which the credit of our stato may bo prcsnrvcd. With her vast resources, Missouri is amply able to meet all her indebtedness in the manner stipulated by the fcc of her bond3, and tho act of the Twenty. sixth general assembly, compel! ing tbe stato creditors lo receive "legal tender in payment on bonds which ei plicitly stimulate that they shall be paid in coin, is seriously damaging our Moan cial standing among the capitalists of the country. Well, what differenco doce that make are not our taxpayers more to be regarded and consulted than the "bloated aristocracy?" It cannot be denied that the taxpayers' interest should bo cjnsluted in nlljinancial trans actions of the state, but is it not a doubt ful interest, to cay tho least, to impair the credit of the state in the money mar kct for the purpose of discreditably sav ing tnem a few cents on their annual taxation ? Tho Auditor's report showj that dur ing the next six years tho debt of the state falling due amounts to seven millions four hundred and tijcly four thousand dol lars, and he says "that in order to meet this amount it will be necessary to bor row money. 1 tio bonds hold for this largo sum of money expressly state that they shall be paid in gold or silver. Tho legislature in 1872, however, passed an act over the Governor's vote, compell ing the holders to receive legal tender notes at par for them. Now, the nues tion arises, If this policy is persisted in, can tho state go into tbo money market and borrow rxoncy to advantage to meet tho indebtedness which falls due within the next six years V It will be teen at a glance that a state which ignore its con tracts with its creditors cannot he relied on by money lenders. If a contract is entered into that tho bonds securing the payment of borrowed money shall be paid in gold or coin, the next legislature that meets may disregard the obligation and say, "here, we know tLese bonds call for gold, but we aro only goiDg to pay you in greenbacks." Tho precedent has been set, and why may it not bo followed ? The good credit of the stato is an in terest of great importanco to tho tax payers, so great that all its contracts should bo literally complied with. Most ot them can better afford to pay a few cents more annually on their property, than be rushed with a heavy taxation to meet this seven million indebtedness within six years, which would have to be tho caso if the state could not borrow tho money. Of course such a catastro phe is not likely to occur, but unlets something is done to assure our creditors, tho state will havo to pay a larger rate of intercut on the amount ho may have to borrow, or give some other tccurity than the face of the bonds, which may bo ignored by a legislature at any time. This is an important matter for tho pros cnt legislature to consider. Repeal the injudicious act passed by its predeces sor, and rcstoro the state bonds to a gold basis once moro. Then tho honor, as well as tho credit of the state, will bo saved. This is a duty wo owe ourselves as a commonwealth, as well as our creuV itors. Sir. Headlee, the Republican member of the senatorial investigating committee, sinco tho last report was made, and which was published with his uarao con eurring, has mado a corro:tion, He still thinks tho business of the co'mmitteo was not thorough and complete, and his opin ion expressed in his minority report is unchanged. llo bcliovcs that if the house had granted tho commitco counsel in the investigation, ond tho investiga tion had been thoroughly prosecuted, that important ovidejico would hove been brought to light that bos not been ob tained. Whether Mr. Headlee makes these assertions for tho purposo of man ufacturing political capital is not clear ; but one thing is clear, the Democrats have done tbe party an injustice by not giving Ihecommitto the largest license, sinco it was demanded by their political oppo nents. As tho matter stands thcro will be an assumed, if not a real doubt in the minds of many, especially Republicans. Tho senato nt Jefferson City has passed the bill making it misdemeanor, pun ishable by a fino of not less than 810 nor more thin 8100, o imprisonment for not more than six months, for any porson to enter a place of worship or any public assembly with a deadly woapon on his person. Tho occasion for this measuro is tho too common habit in tho iuterior ol making church aicotings and publio meeting the opportunity for set Hneauar rels, and of going armed to such places s a preparation for offraya.

Will the Vice President rise and explain what he did to place Mr. Nesbitt under obli- gallons? President Grant has concluded not (o visit tho Southern States next month, as has been announced be would.
