Tuesday, February 3, 1874 THE PRESIDENT'S GRAB. Dunig the terms of seventeen Presi dent. ho preceded the actual occupant of the White House no proposition, and indeed no seriou9 suggestion, was ever made to change the compensation of that Anna o it ahi fired bv the fathers. The country passed through many transitions, trials wars, and financial convulsions dur ing that period of eighty years, and the pay of Congress, the Supreme Court, the Cabinet, nearly the whole cml list, togeth er with the army and navy, was frequent ly raised without touching that of the Pres- dent The arguments and reasous assigned for increasing the salaries of other officers certainly applied with far more force to the Executive when tome of these changes were niude than they do now. In 18G6, whcu a Republican Congress increased their own pay from $3,000 to $5,000, and the pernicious example of the back grab, which recently returned to plague the in ventors, gold was l'n'.and the prices of all commodities and necessaries of life were correspondingly high. That was the pretext for an act which nearly doubled the Congressional pay. The war had just closed; and although taxation was crushing down eveTy industrial inter est the people submitted to this additional burden, unpatriotic as it was.because there was a certain degree of force in the then existing facts to extenuate it. But the reason which made the change good for Congress applied relatively with equal vig or to the President then, or else all the theories which are set up now are false and absurb. It may be naturally asked, why was it that while all these changes were going on, 1'roiu the foundation of the Government down to the id of larch,187o, it never en tered into the minds of the statesmen who illustrated the best days of the republic, or of the forty-one preceding Congresses, to raise the compensation of the President? Why did that compensation alone remain stationary ? The plain answer is that all parties, until the advent of (irantism. accepted the pay originally fixed by law as sumcieut and permanent. And it proved to be abundant by the experience of everv President, in cluding Andrew Johnson, the immediate predecessor of Gen. Grant. The intention was that the Chief Magistrate should live becomingly, but not extravagantly ; and in order that he miht be beyond the caprice or partisanship of Congress, the Constitu tion declared, after the subject had been exhaustively discussed in the convention in all its phases, that "the President shall, at stated times, receive tor his services a com pensation, which shall neither be increased or diminished during the period for which he shall have been elected.-' That clause made him independent on the one hand of Congress.and on the other it excluded him from exercising undue influence tor his own benefit by seeking an increase of compen sation. This provision of the supreme law and these uninterrupted precedents were never called in question until a corrupt com bination was formed, by which Constitu tion, usage, and decency were overridden in the salary-stealing act. The records of Congress establish that the movement to double the President's salary was the corner stone of the disgrace ful legislation which has excited and still excites such just and general resentment throughout the couutry. And it is equally well proven by the most pronounced anil accredited Republicans that the President himself was the real author of thatscheme. and aid more to promote its passage than all other influences by official appeals and personal ersuasion. A subservient Congress was not content with obeying this dictation, but went on and voted at the same time extras and emolu ments to the amount of $77,too, by which the President's expenditures at the White House are reduced to the miuimum ot providing for his family. In tact, the whole outlay is confined to the actual main tenaucc of a small private household, and a tew state dinners, as they are called, while Congress is in sessiou, The public receptions do not cost him a cent. The house, lights, fuel, flowers, servants, and music are all regular charges upon the Treasury, and the only hospitality ever of fered is a cold and awkward shake of the baud. Green house, stables, kitchen garden, and other costly luxuries are supplied in addition, to say nothing ot $6,000 a year lor 'contingencies, and "repairs,' and "furniture, which have become such an annual tax that the money granted under these heads since Gen. Grant came into office would rebuild the Executive Man sion upon a much larger scale than now exists. More than this, the stock provis ions of the White iiouse are furnished from the Quartermaster's department at cost When Congress, under the fear of pop ular indignation, recently repealed a part of the infamous act of last March, it stopped short of justice and of the public demand. The poor pretence of constitu tional impediment for not repealing the President's double pay is little less than an insult to the intelligence of the people. The law itself is plainly a violation of the spirit if not the very letter of the Constitu tion. independent of the fact that it dis tinctly authorizes two conflicting salaries, and therefore does not fix a certain com pensation. Until every vestige of this iuiquity is ex tinguished and the pay of the President ifl put back where it was, the demand for re peal will be as Urgent as when it drove a venal Congress mto a partial act of atone ment. The President's power and patron age alone stop the way in the Senate and Iiouse of Representatives. But they have no terrors tor a people who have been be trayed by both the President and Con gress, aud this question cauuot be kept out of the coming elections. Sugar in Louisiana. The sugar crop of Louisiana is estimated for this season, by the New Orleans FVcoy niK . ut lin),000 hogsheads, last year's crop having yielded 108,520 hogsheads. Neither is regarded uh a very good erop, although ttie supar plantations are gradually recov ering troui the depression caused by the war. Prices have been so low that this year's crop, it is feared, will not pay the planters any profit. Large sums are devo ted to the payment of wages, and it is sug gested that cultivation on the share sys tem, which has been bo buccessiul in rais ing cotton, be adopted on the sugar planta tions. This will give the laborers a direct interest in the crop, and the plan will prob ably be quite generally adopted next year. Foreign sugar has for the past year been admitted at a somewhat lower rate of duty than previously, aud there has been a gen eral decline in the prices of all sugars caused by an over supply. These influen ces naturally affect the Louisiana crops and lessen the profits of the planters. The culture of the sugar cane has of late been to a great extent abandoned on the low lands of the State ; but this is made up by its introduction on the pine lands of Ala bama and Mississippi The Mobile and Ohio railroad, whicii runs for a long dis tance through a section of country adapted to the raising of sugar cane, has beenmak- ing efforts to secure its settlement and cul tivation. The tarmers wno naveemweu upon planting cane in this section have raised profitable crops, one ot ui ueai Clinton. Ala., reporting tnat imsibmw aw gallons of syrup on one acre oi ran nis profit over all expenses being about $15o. The indications are that hereafter Ala bama and Mississippi win appear with Louisiana as the sugar growing States of the Union. ' The partial disclosures at Washington of the means employed Dy the instnct King, with confederates in Congress, to plunder the whole country, are painful, though they are but in keeping with the general corruption. The only member of Conpess implicated, so far, by the correspondence published, is Mr. Starkweather, of Con necticut, who appealed to one of the Ring for money to help him to be re-elected, saying : "Could my friends aid me with out giving publicity to it, it would place me under renewed obligations to you.' Starkweather was re-elected, and at the next session was made Chairman of the Committee on the District of Columbia, and a few months later conducted an "in vestigation" into the abuses of the Dis trict Government reporting everything to be all right. On this Committee was Mr. Eldredge, of Wisconsin, who, in the letters published, is spoken of as a "splendid fel low," and who, in one of his owu letters m& the Ring to pay certain notes of his. The memorial in which grave charges are made and investigation asked for has not yet been presented in the House, and the country expects Messrs. Starkweather and Eldredge to take steps to have that inves tigation made thorough. It seems that one of the principals in the Ring died, and his papers turnish the private and confi dential correspondence between the mem bers of the Ring and their confederates in Congress.

Seaweed Tonic and Mandrake Pills WILL CURE CONSUMPTION Liver Complaint and Dyspepsia ! If taken according to the Directions. They are all three to be taken at the same time.. They cleanse the stomach, relax the liver and put it to work ; then the appetite becomes good ; the food digests and makes good blood ; the patient begins to grow in flesh; the diseased matter ripens in the lungs, and the patient outgrows the disease and gets well. This is the only way to core Consumption. To taese three medicines Or. J. IT. Schenck of Philadelphia, owes his unrivalled success in the treatment of Pulmonary Consumption. The Pul monic Syrup ripens the morbid matter in the lungs nature throws It off by an easy expectoration, for when the phlegm or matter is ripe a slight cough will throw it ofl, and the patieni has rest, and the lungs begin to heal. Todo this, tlte Seaweed Tonic and Mandrake Pilis must be freely used to cleanse the stomach and live so that the Pulmonic Syrup and the food,will make good blood. Sehcncks MandraKe Pills act upon the liver, re moving all obstructions, relax thednetsof the gall bladder, the bile starts freely, and the liver is soon relieved: the stools will show what the Pills can do: nothing has ever he" s .vented except calomel i a deadly poison wmch is ery dangerous to use unless with great care) that will unlock the gall bladuer and start the secretions of the liver like Schenk's Mandrake Pills. Liver Complaint is one of the most prominent onuses of Consumption. Schenck's Seaweed Tonic is a gentle stimulant and alterative, and the alkali in the Seaweed, which this preparation is made of, assists the stomach to throw out the gastric Juice to dissolve the food with tkc Pulmonic Syrup, and it is made into good blood without fermentation or souring in the stomach. The great reason why physicians do not cure Con sumption is, they try to do too much; they give medicine to stop the cough, to stop the chilis, to stop night sweats, hctic fever, and by so doing they derange the whole digestive powers, locking up the secretions, and eventually the patient sinks and dies Dr. Schenck in his treatment doe not try to stop a congh, night sweat, chills or fever. Remove the cause and they will all stopof theirown accord. No i ne can be cured of Consumption, T.iver Complaint, If a person has Consumption, of course the lunga Dyspepsia, Catarrh, Canker, l lcerated Throat, un less the liver and stomach are made healthy. When there is no lung disease, and only Liver Complaint and Dyspepsia, Schenk's Seaweed Tonic and Mandrake Pills are sufficient, without the Pul monic Syrup. Take the Mandrake Pills freely in all b lious complaints, as thev are perfectly harmless. Dr. Schenck's three medicines, which will bring np a tone to the stomach, the patient will begin to want food, it will digest easily and make good blood ; then the patient begins to gain in flesh, and as soon as the body begins to grow the lungs commence to heal up. in some way are diseased. either tubercles, abscesses, bronchial irritations, plenra 'adhesion exist, or the lungs are a mass of lnfl.".mation and fast decaying! In such cases what must be done? It Isnotonlv the lungs that are wasting but it is the whole body. The stomach and liver have lost their Dower to make blood out of food. Now, the only chance is to take and the patient gets fleshy and well. This is the only way to cure Consumption. Dr. Schenck, who hasenjoyed uninterrupted health for many years past, aud now weighs 225 pounds, was wasted away to a mere skeleton, in the very last stage of Pulmonary Consumption, his physiciane having pronounced his case hopeless, and abandoned him to his fate. He was cured by the aforesaid med icines, and since his recovery many thousands sim ilarly afflicted have used his preparations with the same remarkable success. Full directions accompa ny each, making it not absolutely necessary to per gonally see Dr. Schenck, unless patients wish their lungs examined. Dr.Schene.k and his son. J. H. Schenck, Jr., M.
