26. It is expetei
that the oomnsittee engaged in counting the
money and securities, finished and unfin
ished at the bureau of engraving and print
ing, will finish its work to-morrow. Every
thing has been found to tally as periect'y
as did the millions in the treasury vaults.
Everything and every sheet of paper that
is so carefully guarded has been found in its
proper place. It is quite possible that not
a few democratic citizens jf this country,
deceived by the turgid harangues ot Mr.
Hendricks an I other "offensive partis in"
campaign -orators, have really bel'eved that
the treasury department was as corrupt as
Babylon ot old, full of dark and mysterious
abominations which woald all be brought to
lijbt when the books shsuld be scanned by
the sharp ves o' democratic officials Ever
since the count bean these people have
been sitting with ears agog listening for ttte
.-crack of doom. It may well be imngined
that a felling of disappointment prevades
"the democratic heart because there was
nothing fotsatl to yell over. detta-nly ne
higher comp!ment could be paid to thehnn
sty and efficiency of the repuVican admin
istration than is contained in the mere fact
that afier twenty lour yeanfc of power, dur
whick bil'ii ns upon billions of doUars hrve
flowed in and out tlirou'h all the devious
channe's f business, Uee cas1-1 as found to
balance, even to the eviermost farthing.

Wastuxctos, June 1. Within the past
iew days a $1030 clerkship in the pension
bureau having beet ae vajant, Secretary
Latiotr sent a rc(uis:tion to the civil service
comm.is.iior. for a certificate tor a person u

the commission cert'l'y to the depa.-iment
the nam:- of a female clerK from Dakota, fee
Jiaving foaod that that territory had no
Tepreseniiition in fe'be bureau. A reply to
this request was prepared to day by the
commis-siou, and forwarded to the secretary
dm mediately. In it the comni'ss'ou decline
to make certification as requested, and say
in substance that it is the province of the
"commission, and not that of the secretary
of the interior, to name the states and ter
ritories from which selections shall be made
for certification i-pon requisitions; and with
respect to this particular case, that Dakota
is not on the list for choice of appointmeui-s,
and that therefore the commission will not
select a clerk bom that territory. This de
cision of the commission will, it is under

that will govern any future cases of the
A REPUBLICAN BE M EVER IN JACKSON.
Waskujgtojc, June I. A. F. Howard,
collector of customs at Portsmouth, New
Hampshire, has tendered his resignation to
the secretary of the treasury. In It's letter
lie says that he has held t'K bVe since De
cember 24. 1873, during which time he has
endeavored to faithfully discharge its du
ties. He then adds: "I have also, during
all that time, been a zea'ous member of the
republican party, and in every way po:sible
contributed to its success. Consequently
my 'offensive partisanship' can be estab
lished by many witnesses. For twenty
years I hive also been a strong believer in
the-Jd Jackson doctrine 'to the victor be
longs the spoils.' -Consisteuey, therefore,
compels me firmly to adhere to these prin
ciples and couvictio is, iu defeat as well as
ia victory." To-day Alpheus Hanscom
'was appointed his successor. j
A BAD LOOKOUT.
Washington, June 1. General Schofield
to-day telegraphed to the war department
the following dispatch, dat i 1 Fort Buyard,
yesterday, from General Cuek, commanding
the department of Arizona. "Eight par
ties of troops are scooting for Indians. The
outlook is very bad, and the troubles will
be exceedingly difficult to annp.-ess."' It is
learned at the war department that between
sixteen and twenty companies, containing
about 1200 men, are in the field, in pursuit
of the Indians.

HIGGINS ItESOC'.S TO LOW COMEDY.
Chicago, May 31. A special from Wash
ington says: Appointment Clerk Hig'ns
evidently needs to be watched. Messen
gers, laborers and others in the treasury
holding subordinate positions, complain that
he goes about the corridors draw;nghis fure-
tinger significantly across bis throat, to in
dicate the rtocess of decapitation, and mut
tering: "You will hare to go;" "the repub
licans must go." He contributes very much
toward disturbing the peace of nervous sro-
ordinates, and injuring the service by antics
of this sort. Fixiias has let it be known
that he has obtained a ist of all e'erks who
have made any contribution for poetical pu'
poses. and has indicated that a cont-ibutioD
of that sort is a sufficient tert of efer-ive
pat tisaoship to warrant summary removal.
He has possibly never heard of section th'r
teen of the civi' service act which provides:
"No officer or employe o" the United States
mentioned in this act shall discharge, or
degrade, or in any manner change the otb-
cvtl rank or compensation ol any outer
offieercr employe, or promts; or threaten to
do so, for giving or withhold ng, or neglect
ing to make any o mtiibution of mo-iey, or
any valuable thing for any politic! pat-
pose." If the c induct o? Higi,.'ns is such as
is qu'te generally reported in the tieasu.,',
it seems pretty clear thai he by his threats,
is violating the aec'ion just qao.ed aud if
nothing eLe he ahorld be brought up with a
round turn for such grotesque peiorman-es
as trying to terrorize public servants I y pa
rading the treasury orridor.- and with
lingers significantly cutt'ng his throat.

CALIFORNIA V Y HUNGRY.
New Yotik. June 1. A Washingtoj
special gives a coip.ma and a half roview and
an analysis of the California democracy, by
an erpert. He dej'ares it is indeed a red
Ictte- dcy at the While house when the
p evident is not besieged by one or mo'e of
the hungry, clrmurous delegations, eac'.i
bent on imperching the pa. ty loyalty of the
other. They are giving the admi'iistration
more vexation and trouble ti-an tlte app't
caats ti any other tate. No wonder the
pre- idential mind is confused, and the de
sive to replace incumbent republic?ns with
honest democrr .s is absolutely thwarted.

DYNAMIfi OJTPAGE AT DENVEB.
Denve.-, Jane 2. At an ear.y hojr this

giant powder or dynamite. Some mouths
since employes of the Kill as'ed an increase
of wages, which was re. used, Tie men

days ago five sticks of giant powder we.e
found on the Denver and Bio G ande track
near tue c-ty. The concuss'oa causd f.-om a
train pacing over it would have blown the
train to atoms. Several other attempts to
blow up property have been discovered re
cently. If outrages couture the indigna

THE TSANSCOH-rtNENTAL POOL.
San Franco. Mrv 30. It is stated
here that the arbitrators of the Transconti
rental pool had decided upon the perceot
age to Be awarded to each hne in the asso

announced, and only the managers of the
different roads have been made acquainted
with the result of the arbitrators" work. It
"s said that several of the roads feel that
great injustice has been done them, for their
percentages are much less than the earnings
ot the roads.

London, June 2. Dispatches from Bom

of a disastrous errthquakein the province of
Cashtner. The shocks began on Sunday
aud have continued at intervals of ten min
ute ever b:nre. The shocks are very severe
at Scriuaqui, the capital of Cashmer. The
barracks in which severa' hundred soldiers
quartered, were completely destroyed, col
lapsing so suddenly that nearly half of them
were imprisoned in the debris. Fifty are
known to have been ki'led, while fu'ly 100
were more or les3 injuied. Portions of the city
have breu demo' :shed . while very few of the
remaining bni'dings escaped injury, many
having latge rents made in them. People
became panic strtcken shortly after the dis
turbance began and fled from the c'ty to
take refuge in boats and tents in open fields.

BRIGHTER CROP PROSPEt.TS.
London, May, 31. The most encouraging
feature of the agricultural out'oek is the
'avorable change in the weather which has
come at the most opportune time, when
warmth ard sunshine wi'l produce the be'
lesults, and rspecially a" it has been pre
ceded by copious rains. The backward con
dition of crops and discoloration of whe&t
have been sourcas of complaint, but it is now
admitted that no lasting injurv was done,

FXPULSOiN OF GERMANS BY RUSSIA.
London, June 1. The supposition that
the expulsion of Russian Poles from Ger.
man territory, where they 'iod settled to es
cape Russian despotism, was due to an un
derstanding between the governments of
Russia and Germany, seems to have no suf
ficient foundation. Bussia, it appears, is
anything but pleassd at the action of the
German authorities, and is engaged in the
execution of a retaliatory measure. Many
Germans who have been residing in Bussia
are being forced to return to their native
country. Hardly any notice is given them
that they will be required to return, and
much hardship and suffering attends the
expulsion. In many instances these refugees
reach the German frontier in a destitute
THE CANADIAN PACIFIC'S SCHEME.
Ottawa, June 2. The Canadian Pacific
Bailway Company have noticed American
railway lines that it will ne longer carry
passengers from the United States and east
ern provinces into Manitoba and the north
west at immigration rates. It is the intent
of the Canadian Pacific to force traffic over
its own line north of Lake Superior, which is
now completed. The effect of this may be
to arouse competitio i oe the part of Ameri
can railways, and the settlement of the west
era state m?y be advanced at the expense
of the Canadian territories.

Mm Amutlnt XpUode of the Great Impeach
A writer ia an Eastern publication, in
grring scans reminiscences of the im
peachment of President Johnson, gays:
I wish to give one other description
from this famous trial so full of interest
that relating to Gov. Bontwell's " Hole
in the Sky." Having had the good fort
une to be present, I can say, with all
truthfulness, that I never have, before
or since, witnessed a large audience so
convulsed with laughter as was the
whole Senate and the immense crowd of
spectators on the occasion of Mr.
Evarts' reply to Gov. BoutweLL touch
ing this astronomical wonder.
In the course of his elaborate and
able argument, Gov. Bout well said:
Travelers and astronomers inform
us that in the southern heavens, near
near the Southern Cross, there is a vast
space which the uneducated call the hole
in the sky, where the eye of man, with
the aid of the powers of the telescope,
has been unable to discover nebulas, or
asteroid, or comet, or planet, star or
sun. In that dreary, cold, dark region
of space, which is only known to be less
than infinite by the evidences of crea
tion elsewhere, the Great Author of ce
lestial mechanism has left the chaos
which was in the beginning. If this
earth were capable of the sentiments
and emotions of justice and virtrte,
which in human mortal beings are the
evidences and the pledge of our divine
origin and immortal destiny, it would
heave, and throe, with the energy of the
elemental forces of nature, and project
this enemy of races of men into that

Here is what Mr. Evarts, when he
came to make his argument, said in re
" 1 may as conveniently at this point
of the argument as at any other pay
some attention to the astronomical pun
ishment which the learned and honora
ble manager, Mr. Bout well, thinks
should be applied to this novel case of
impeachment of the President. Cicero,
I think it is, who says that a lawyer
should know everything, for, sooner or
later, there is no fact in history, in sci
ence, or of human knowledge that will not
come intoplay in his argument. Painfully
sensible of my ignorance, being devoted
i o a profession which 4 sharpens and does
not enlarge the mind,' I yet can admire
without envy the superior knowledge
evinced by the honorable manager. In
deed, upon my soul, I believe he is
aware of an astronomical fact which
many professors of . that science are
wholly ignorant of. But, nevertheless,
while some of his honorable colleagues
were paving attention to an unoccupied
and unappropriated island on the sur
face of the seas, Mr. Manager Boutwell,
more ambitious, had discovered an un
tenanted and unappropriated region in
the skies, reserved, he would have us
think, in the final councils of the Al
mighty as the place of punishment for
convicted and deposed American Presi
dents. "At first I thought that his mind had
become so 'enlarged' that it was not
' sharp enough to discover the constitu
tion had limited the punishment, but on
refection I saw that he was as legal and
logical as he was ambitious and astron
omical, for the constitution has said 're
moval from office,' and has pat no limit
to the distance ot the removal, so that it
may be, without shedding a drop of his
blood, or taking a penny of his property,
or confining his limbs, instant removal
from office aud transportation to the
