Tnc public puistixo.
Among the appropriations madeof money in the
State Treasury tor tho late scsiou we find an item
of flS.Ol'O for the priming. This goes toouo man
Thomu Patterson. liulleti.
The above extract fully illustrates
the demagogisiu of the editor of the
Holladay organ, and ought to bo suf
ficient to make the public doubt his
sincerity upon any point whatever.
The appropriation of $15,000 was
made not only to cover the expenses for
that Bession and tho subsequent work
for the two years which will intervene
until the.next, but was also necessary
to pay the Republican Stato Printer
for work which was performed prior to
Mr. Patterson's induction into the du
ties of his office. By careful examina
tion it was fonud that Mr. McPhersou
was entitled to about fi.OOO, and that
amount, deducted from tho appropri
ation, leaves 11,000 to pay Mr. Pat
terson if he earns it. . One would in
fer from tho Bulletin editor's state
ment that the appropriation was in
bucIi a shape that Mr. P. would re
ceive that amount whether or not he
performed sufficient work in return,
when the fact is that the Public Print
er's work is all to be examined and
carefully measured by a disinterested
expert, who is sworn to perform las
duty "without fear, favor or affection,"
and who reports to the Secretary of
State the amount of work performed
and the compensation to which the
Printer is entitled under the statute,
.1 COMPARISON OF ACCOUNTS.
It ia a fact which cannot be put out
of sight by any manipulation of figures
or perversion of truth, that the ordi
nary c'xpenees of the government are
now annually more than twice as great
as during any yoar of Buchanan's ad
ministration; this, including all that
is paid on pension accounts or for in
terest on the public debt. . Now the
question that arises in every man's
mind is, "Why is this enormous in
crease of expenditure indulged in?
Why is it, that, at such a time as this,
when such a monstrous sum is ncces
sarially drawn from tho people each
year to pay tho 'interest on the debt,
and more must also bo raised, if we
would make any reduction of the
debt, when there is, as it were, an im
perative necessity for the practice of
the most rigid economy everywhere,
on the part of tho government, its ex
penses should bo so much in excess of
what they were before tho war?
Wo are told by the defenders of the
administration, that the expenditures
are necessarily larger, on account of
tho growth of tho country, increase of
population, territory, &c. Granted
that such is tho case, yet it by no
means follows that they should bp
doubled. Moreover, it was claimed
by the Radicals during tho period of
Buchanan's administration, that tho
same was most outrageously extrava
gant, and that the nation would be
financially ruined unless there was a
speedy change. Tho fact that the
enormous aum of three millions tf dol
lars was expended on the military ex
pedition, sent out against the Mur-
and the Secretary of State draws war
rants upon the Treasurer to cover tho jiaons, under that administration, was
amount of compensation reported as seized upon and paraded before the
due by the said expert. If it is asoer-(country as an unprecedented piece of

AVe are aware that this large
the balance of the money will remain
in the Treasury for other purposes.
Sa it is Been at a glance by an exami-j crease of expenditure, on the whole, is
nation of the facts in the case that the attributed, in great measure, to the
assertion of the Bulletin is a gross mis- increased cost of the War and Navy

Oa the 21st of October the Departoent
of Agriculture at Washington prepared a
digest of the reports upon the cuntiitivjn
-of the crops of the year up to October
from which we learn that the wheat crop
of 1870 in a majority of the States, aud
especially in those ia which this cereal is
prominent, is materially less in quantity
than the crop of 16G9, which was a very
large one, notwithstanding the assertions
to the contrary. The reduction in due,
first, to the loss of plants Ly aa unpropi

London, Nov. 8. Jiismarck has fur-
nitihed the following explanation of the

Tho i'reiich Government having declined,
through its representative, Theirs, to ac
cent tho Oeriuun offer of an armistice on
the bums ol itulu quo, the Uount propos
ed that the French should nuiuo a time
for holding an eieciion for tho Constituent
Aaxcuiblv. Tho Germans promised, iu
such an event, that absolute freedom of
elections should be respected, even in ter
ritory now occupied by tbe i'russians.
Theirs thereupon withdrew to the outposts
to consult with J avre, but at lengln re
turned to Versailles without the power
to accent the German terms.
King William has issued an order that
no pemun bo allowed hereafter to enter or
leave Pari. Paxsenuers have just been
captured and will be court-uiarhaled for
