Saturday. April 21. 1877. A Letter That The mind of Will Live in History. a man of principle ia shown io the letter from Charles Francis Adama of Massachusetts to barouel J. Tilden. Io stronj? words lie protests against the wcupaoey of the presidential office by Rutherford B. Hayes, who, he says, "must forever carry upon his brow the stamp of fraud firsc triumphant in American history." Mr. Adams is not to be deceived by any pretences that may be made by Hayes: for, says he, "no subse quent action, however meritorious, can wash away the letters of that record." This is a terrible verdict against Hayes from odc of the most experienced states men in the country N. Y. Sun. Charles Francis Adams has written a letter to Mr. Tilden to express his strong approval of that gentleman's dignified and patriotic conduct during the contest over the electoral count and siuce the coo.sum mation of the wrong. In the bold, inde pendent mauner which is natural to hi in. Mr. Adams expresses his satisfaction at the thought that he joined the Democratic side daring tne lust canvass, and has there fore no responsibility for ttutherford B. Hayes and no alliance with a man who holds the presidency with the brand ot fraud upon his brow. In this connection we should like to pat a plain question t ex-President Woolsey, of Yale. That gentleman took pains to come forward in the course ot the presidential campaign and preside at a Republican meeting. 11 could say nothing against Mr. Tilden, save that he should not be elected because he seemed too eager to get the office for which he was a candidate. This censure irom such a source was much quoted, and had some weight among scholars in politics. Since the election Mi. Hayes has been counted into the chief magistracy by fraud. That fraud has been acknowledged lby his partisans, but was defended -on a pretense that it was covered by a legal technicality. Mr. Hayes was so anxious for the presidency that he accepted it as the fruit ot that fraud. He was so anx ious for it that he made a bargain with his political opponents to procure their consent by counting him in. Does it not strike President Woolsey that Mr. Hayes has shown himself more eager for office than Mr. Tilden, since ho has taken the office that belonged to Mr. Tilden? Is it not President Woolsey's duty to cay so and apologize to the latter? Is it unt hi duty at such a crisis to say whether he is reconciled to the elevation, by his aid in some degree, of "a person who must for "ever carry on his brow the stamp of fraud "first triumphant in American history"? The opluioos of a gentleman who was so very sensitive about the decencies of the presidential canvass seven or eight months ago would be of great interest just now. iV. Y. Worll. Tweed's Eisclosure. We copy from the World what appear. to be an epitome of the long-promised disclosures of William M. Tweed. We do not wish to be understood as vouching for the absolute correctness of this abstract of what is doubtless a much more elabor ate document, but probably it is in the main faithful to the origiual, and the dis closures themselves are in substance un questionably true. The striking feature of these revelations i9 that they implicate to many prominent and influential Republicans. That the old Tammany Ring and its immediate satcllitie" were involved in the conspiracy for robbing this city and ultimately shared in the plunder, nobody doubted. Hence, tew will be surprised to find the nam 2 ot Mayor Hall added to the list of culprits. Like Peter B. Sweeny, he pocketed his ten per cent, ot the stealings, and the threatened introduction of this fact to the litrlit of open day is amply sufficient to no count for the clandestine departure ot Mr. Hall to foreigu lands. When it was seen with what alacrity many Republicans in the old board ot supervisors ratified the enormous and ex tortionate bills which the Boss and his accomplices from time to time carried through the board, it was shrewdly ex pected that these political opponents of Tweed, who had been elected for the pur pose ot keeping a strict watch upon thir Democratic associates, received compensa tion for their votes in some substantial mode. Therefore, the public will not be astonished to learn that such active Re publican supervisors as Henry Smith and Isaac J. Oliver took pay in cash for their services as they went along The largest outlay tor Republican aid in the robberios of the ring was during the legislative session of 1870, The chief instrument tor plundering the city was the charter passed in that year. It com pletely remodelled all departments ot the municipality, opening a wide door for Tweed, Hall, Sweeny, Connolly and their associates, upon whom the important offices were bestowed. This charter cre ated the famous board of audit, through whose operations the city was fleeced of millions of money. It was always believ cd that bribery and corruption od a large scale in the legislature, procured the enactment of this charter; but this could not bo proved because those who knew the tacts would not open their mouths. Tweed has now done this in the affidavit and other proofs he has placed in the hands of AtUrney-Oeneral Fair-child. To secure the passage of the bill, it seems that he paid $200,000 in cash to Norris Winslow, a Republican senator from the Jefferson district, who was to divide it with William B. Woodin of Auburn, Frost of Statcn Island. Elwood of Otsego, Brand of Madison, Wood of Livingston, Blood of Saratoga, and Morgan of Dut chess all of whom were Republican sena tors, except Frost, who was a Democrat. Besides these senators, money was paid to other Republicans for assistance in carry ing the measure, among whom were the notoriously infamous lobbyist A. D, Bar ber, the half brother of Judge Moah Davis, (a Republican judge) and Hugh J. Hastings, the editor of the Commercial Adwertbter, a leadiug Republi can journal ot this city. The precise sums paid to thes? agentN do not appear in the abstract published in the World, though it seems that Mr. Hastings eot $2(),000 at one time. And it is highly probable that a larger amount than $200,000 was ultimately received by these senatorr. A good many riscala of various sorts and sizes are mixed up in theso startling revelations. We cannot refer to them in detail. It is possible that some names aro usod without sufficient authority. The full text of the documents furnished by lweed to the attorney-general will give the public the means of correcting crron ous reports, and placing the brand only on the foreheads of guilty parties. Pretty nearly all the persons whom Tweed implicates iu these great crimes have gone out of office. Only two or three now occupy prominent positions. The most notorious is William B. Woodin. He entered the senate in 1870, just in time to lake Tweed's money and vote for his charter. He has remained in the sen ate ever siuce; and for the last four years he has been the Republican leader in the legislature. During the present session be has been unusually arrogant, It is Inch time that he stepped down and out, His speech of yesterday does not clear up his case. These painful and humiliating disclos ures should teach a memorable lessou. A Leak that On!it to be Stopped A few days since Ta second-handj book seller in Washington called at the agricul tural department and proposed to furnish two hundred copies of the annual report of that department for 187475, at the ex ceedingly low price of fifteen cents each. The book cost the government fifty-five cents. On inquiry it was ascertained that the dealer had purchased them ot a mem ber of congress.who had procured them free of charge, of course, "for the u?e of his constituents." The thrifty member had probably sold them for eight or ten cents a volume, which allowed the dealer a handsome profit at fifteen. This is by no means a rare occurrence, though it is very seldom that any book merchant has sufficient impudence to try to sell public documents to the very department that is sued them. At every book-stall in St. Louis literature of this kind may be bought at about the cost ot waste paper, and in very many cases it may be had for the asking. All ot which goes toprove, what we have lrequently asserted, that the govern ment printing office is a swindle upon the taxpayers, and ought long since to have been either reduced to proper limits, or or abolished altogether, lhat there arc some congressional uud department reports which ought to be published for the bene fit of the people, we do not deny; but the larger proportion of them are not wort nutting in writing, much less in urint, The demand for the best of them is ex ceedingly 6niall, and with tew exceptions they are read by nobody except the proof readers. W hen a book which cost the government fifty five cents to print and bind saying nothing of the cost of col lecting and preparing the matter finds no buyers at fifteec cents, it is evident that the public document mill should take long restiog-bpell, and when started again be conducted on entirely difference princi pies, But the rivival of the frankjng priv ilege which it is seemingly impossible to permanently kill will probably keep that mill , grinding. It furnishes a cheap rnetlod of electioneering, and the farmer who gets a bulky book from his member, of congress, and feels flattered thereby. even though he uses it to kindle fires, set dotu thinks that he has to help pay for it e shall never believe any or the econo mical professions of congress until the pub lie printing is brought within the bounds of absolute necessity, and kept there. ot, IjOuis hepuulican. The Rascals Pashas are Made Of. The dispatches speak of one "Hobart" Pasha as commander-in-chief of the Turk ish navy. In reading up Turkish affairs, it will be well to remember that any shrewd, unscrupulous, desperate, or cash iered character, from any nation under heaven, can, by proper cringing and venal ity, become a.Turkish.;pasha with three tails, or even sultan for'that matter. This Hobart l'asha is an Englishman by birth and education. That vile wretch, Valentine Baker, of the British army, who was cashiered for grossly insulting and abusiDg a lady on an English railway car. is now a furkish "pssha." A German adventurer ut the worst character is known to be another pasha. The peculiar system of government at Constantinople permits and encourages these adventurers. Sharp, desperate, lustful, disgraced and dishonor ed ex-officials, from the Georgian Moun tains, from England, from Germany, from Austria, from Persia and Central Asia, from Africa, from France, find in the customs of Turkey a fine field for the indu'gence of their lust, their rapacity, their instinct for oppression, and all the bad elements of their depraved human nature, i hey have only at hrst to cringe and crawl to the sultan and those in power, doing faithfully their dirty work, and pro motion follows, lhey have no interest m or sympathy with the masses whom th;y roo, or the government they serve, further than to be secure in the unlicensed gratia cation ot all their hellish propensities lhese be the officers who direct or permit all the "atrocities" of which we read in that unhappy and misgoverned empire. From the Chicago Tribune. When Mr. Blaine and Wendell Phillips, and the few newspaper organs who echo their denunciations of the president for withdrawing the troops from Louisiana, sf euk of the abandonment by the govern men t of the non resistant freedman, they should point out when the carpet-bag governments ever protected the negroes, or prosecuted and punished their murder ers or assailants? When did Gov. Kellogg arrest and prosecute any ot the assassins and bulldozers who have for so many years treated the negroes so barbarously?

V ,K TY TEAB8 BEFORE THE PUBLIC DR. C M?LANE'S CELEBRATED LIVER PILLS, FOR THE CURE OP Hepatitis or Liver Complaint, DYSPEPSIA AND SICK HEADACHE. Symptoms of a Diseased Liver. T)AIN in the right side, under the edge i of the ribs, increases on pressure ; sometimes the pain is in the leftside; the patient is rarely able to he on the left side ; sometimes the pain is felt under the shoulder-blade, and it frequently ex tends to the top of the shoulder, and is sometimes mistaken for a rheumatism in the arm. The stomach is affected with loss of appetite and sickness ; the bowels in general are costive,sometimes alterna tive with lax : the head is troubled with pain, accompanied with a dull, heavy sensation in the back part. There is generally aconsiderable lossof memory, accompanied with a painful sensation of having left undone something which ouyht to have been done. A slight, dry coueh is sometimes an attendant. The patient complains of weariness and de bility; he is easily startled, his feet are Cold or burning, and he complains of a prickly sensation of the skin; his spirits arc low ; and although he is satisfied that exercise would be beneficial to him, yet he can scarcely summon up fortitude enough to try it. In fact, he distrusts every remedy. Several of the above symptoms attend the disease, but cases have occurred where few of them existed, yet examination of the body, after death, has shown the liver to have been ex tensively deranged. AGUE AND FEVER. Dr. C. MLane's Liver Pills, in cases of Ague and Fever, when taken with Quinine, are productive of the most happy results. .No better cathartic can be used, preparatory to, or after taking Quinine. VVe would advise all who are afflicted with this disease to cive them a fair trial. For all Bilious derangements, and as a simple purgative, they are unequaled. BEWARK OP IMITATIONS.
