The exodus of Government clerks from Washington to he used ut home for voting purposes has never been so great as at this fall's Republican dan ger. In the face of the Civil Service law , these men are furnished with transportation to their homes , and in many cases their entire trip expenses are borne , if not from the public Treas ury , nobody knows what. From the Government Printing OiHce so many have left that the place has the ap pearance this \veek that it has on the Sabbath day. When it is remember- d that there are 80,000 voters here to be distributed among the several States , and as there is likely to be a close fight in many of them , we can see the reason for this gathering of Republican clans and concentrating them upon the country ballot-box. This very morning the alarm comes from Republican Wisconsin that calls for the last man from the Badger State i who has a vote to go home and cast it. The same protection dodge that de bated Hurd in Ohio , is being worked ; o the threatened disaster of Mr. Mor risen in Illinois. The opponent of Mr. Morrison is Tom Needles the "ormer State Auditor , who is very ) opular and therefore very adaptable to the various elements of the popu- ation that he mixes with. Morrison jeat Kneffner two years ago with 2- , bOO majority and under a free trade ssue , but it is probable that Needles vith his popularity and a redoubled > rotection onslaught will prove a nore dangerous foe for Mr. Mor rison's steel. The man who has talked and writ- en more about finance and demon strated that he knew less about it than anybody else , has received the port- olio of the Treasury in the place of Mr. Gresham , who takes a life place on the bench" the successor of Judge 3rummond. McCulloclfs vagaries as Secretary of the Treasury once before , vere the laughings-tock of the whole nancial world , except the few sharks u Wall street into whose hands he vas constantly playing the Govern- nents best trumps. It is Wall street low that has demanded of Mr. Arthur he re-instatementof the same MeCul- och who believes that hoarding five uindred millions of dollars in the freasury to lie idle , while the coun- ry's industrial industries are going o the dogs , is the true theory of sue- ; essful financiering. With all our pretended perfection n the matter of transporting the mails of the country , the complaints come n at the rate of twenty thousand per rear of the loss of valuable letters. Of these 14,641 contained enclosures of money , comprising checks , drafts and urrency , of which number the effi cient detective force of the Post Office Department succeeded in running down about 1,800 of them as having inully reached their destination , hough no mention is made of the 18- )00 ) that did not. It is gratifying to je informed however , that the percen tage of convictions in the Federal courts for violations of the Post Office iaws is en the increase , for out of the 398 offences tried in those courts 430 were convicted , 88 acquitted , and ] ol yet on trial. PJIOXO. IT is more honorable to acknowl edge our faults than to boast of our merits. GKATITL'WI : is the fairest blossom that springs from the soul , and the heart of man knowcth none more fra- rrant. Tin : arms of wit ought ahvay to be feathered with smiles. When they fail in that they become sarcasm , and like two edged sword ? . To think kindly is good , to speak cindly is better , but to act kindly is best. Let warm , loving light shine all around you , and you will never lack friends. SOISKK sense , sftlf-possession and in telligent self-control are the sife- ojuards of head and heart , and make a beautiful temple for the soul. THE BESSEMER HEATER.
