" the ruling power: " But in Republics
the reverse is trne. The ancient prov

t' IIow is it with the " party which
now ha. control 4the reins of gov

ignored and capital alone is consulted.
But one power isackhdwledged by the
Republican party, that is the power

i trob the dispensing " of ' Federal
V patronage. ..iloney .is the power
c. which is brought into .requisition . to
feontrbl elections and the manner of
its use is often criminal and debasing. ,
Insidiously the money power is slowly

' control of eveiy .Department '-of the

J"A50THi EADICAL MUDDLE.
A dispatch dated on the 2nd insi
Horace Oreeley this morning pub
lishes a reply to the late communica
tion of the Chairman of the Republi
can State Central committee, A. .
Cornell, in which he-asserts .that the
action of the State Central Committee
in directing reorganisation of the party
in this city was an unwarrantable in
terference with local organization, and
founded on a desire to advance the in
te rests of Federal officer-holders rather
than the interests of the party. The
conduct of the Committee has not tend
ed to secure any adjustment of local
differences which should be properly
adjusted by the State Convention. The
charsre of Cornell that Greeley's com
mi t tee was made up mainly of Repub
lican office-holders under the city gov
ernment is answered by a charge that
or 147 delegates elected to Cornell's
general committee, nearly 60 are feder
al office-holders. ' Greeley in conclu
sion demands a retraction of the false
hoods of Cornell's letter.
The Federal officials of New York
are, of course,, for Grant's renomina
tion and like those of Lousiana they
are determined to rule or ruin. ' As
the . Presidential contest approaches
the Inst of Grant's satraps, for gain be
comes intensified and their efforts to
retain position -are, redoubled. Gree
ley is really the only man in the Re
publican ranks able to cope with the
Federal Y office-holders' , and he will
finally be compelled to surrender.
Grant's adherents have but one plea
to offer in his favor and ' that is that
he' has Tieen successful as a financier.
Let us ask' in what manner and by
what means he has been successful in
a financial point of view? ..' ;

VXEQTTAL. A1KD OPPRESSIVE
jv.iir:y'! TAXATIOJI. - ,
In 1868 Massachusetts' paid seven
teen and Ohio twelve millions inter
nal revenue tax, while for the current
fiscal year it is estimated that Massa
chusetts will pay less than four and a
half millions,' and Ohio' more than'
pixteen.' . The tax in Ohio has been
increased four and in .Massachusetts
reduced twelve and a half millions.
This : was done by taking - the tax off
the manufactures of Massachusetts
and imposing them on those of Ohio.
When .the. internal tax was taken 'off
the manufactures of Massachusetts,
the price of them ought to have fallen,
but . was increased.. The very f men
who voted to take the tax off manu
factures, increased the tariff tax on
foreign goods, thus destroyed compe
tition and enabled Massachusetts to
gain . enormous . profits on - all she
made and sold ; and those' profits
were at the cost of Ohio and other
agricultural States.'- In 1868 the six
Staieso;,of Ohipf'T. Indiana, Illinois,
Kentq pky , . , .Missouri t and u- Virginia,
paid four i millions ' more taxes than
the six New England States, but this
year.ttey:will pay ' forty-seven mil
lions more; and Ohio alone .will pay
more than double the whole amount
of taxes paid by all New England,
.These facts are taken from the table
in the official report of the Commis
sioner of Internal Revenue. .-1 .
