EUGENE CITY, OREGON
Wasiiisgton, April 3, 187G.
The Demooratio oauous bill was of
fered on Tuesday last by Mr. Payne
of Ohio, and on a motion, to suspend
the rules received only 81 vdtes to
150 against it. Nearly all the votes
for the bill were from the Democratic
side of the house. But as was pre
dicted iu previous letters neither the
Hard-money oor the per tt greenback
men among the Democrats voted for
the bill, and it is now thought that
the finance question will be dropped
as Reno sometime since suggested.
The acuteness of the Republican par
ty leaders has never been more con
spicuously displayed than in the way
they have handled this finance ques
tion. They have lad absolute con
trol of all the departments oi the gov
ernment for fifteen years and were
the authors of the system of financo,
"the direful causo cf all our woe," and
now they deftly make of it a wooden
horse to introduce confusion into the
Domocralio citadel. Their Richard
sons, Chases and Boutwells could not
grapple with the monster they had
evoked and they evaded it Now
that tho Democrats control the llouao,
whose duty it is to grapple with such
questions, tbey force the issue and de
nounce the Democrats as "incompe
tent," because they do not at once
settle a question which Republicans
have been unable to in years of effort.
The Democrats would do well to (bl
ow the example set them by the Re
publicans for so mauy years and for
the present ignore the finance question.
Their whole efforts should be to re
store holiest and efficient government;
when this is done it will be time
enough to discuss obtuse questions of
finance. Success can only be attained
by perfect amity and that cannot for
the present be had upon this money
problem, therefore it should be se
verely let alone.
One of the House committees has
been investigating the management
of the Government insane asylum, and
it has been shown that while one
body of Republican patriots were
speculating upon the bones of dead
soldiers, another sot have been mak
ing fortunes by feeding insane men
and women upon rotten beef and
mouldy bread, clothing them in rags
and iorciug them to live in filth that
would turn the stomach of a well
bred hog. Suoh patriots should be
in the language oi the Cincinnati plat
form of 1872, "relegated" to private
General Custar has been before the
committee on war expenditures ana
has testified to the corruption of post
traders and to the manner in which
they robbed officers and soldiers to
enable them to make money enough
to pay Orv 1 Grant, Belknap, and the
other black mailers. Several of the
post traders have testified to their
having been assessed and forced to
pay sums ranging from one to tour
hundred dollars tor political purposes.
With the whiskey ring busted and
the post-traders fieed from the system
of blackmail, the campaign fund of
the Republicans will not be so large
as it was in 1S7Z. . .
It has come to light that Robeson
has been construing the bankrupt
house of Jay Cooke, McCnlloch and
Co. as the fiscal agents of the navy in
Europe, and $200,000 of the drafts of
Pav-master General Bradford, who is
kept in plain violation of law in Lou
don, have lately come out as having
been paid out of funds intended tor
other purposes. There has been more
"crookedness" in the navy thaa in
any' other department, but it is harder
to trace because Kobeson has covered
up his tracks too well. Whitthorne
is on Ins track like a sieutn-bouna
and will bag his game before long.
Attorney-General Pierrepont seem
to be on "the ragged edge," for not
only is the committee disclosing some
very discreditable lacts s to Ills de
partment, but there has arisen a ques
tion of veracity between him ana the
President as to the letter written to
the District Attorney in relation to
implicated witnesses and which Bab
cock stole a copy of aod published.
The articles of impeachment against
Secretary Belknap have been prepared
and reported. The evidence is amply
sufficient to codvict bim and the trial
will commenco next week. The
House is now boldio? night sessions
to consider the executive, legislative
and judicial bill ; tome opposition has
been developed among
but there is no doubt
tbat the bill will rr ss substantially as
the committee' reported it, and that
six millions of dollars will be saved
to the government by iu becoming a
law. Should it bo defeated, there
.tangibility must reH, ,?pon the lie
publican Senate for continuing the
useless expenditure of $6,000,000 per
anaura.7 The entire force of the ad
ministration seems to be brought to
bear to secure Conkling delegates to
the Cinoipnali Convention and the
Democrats ought to heartily aid in
this movement for no other candidate
except Morton could be so easily
beaten as "the favorite son of New
York.'? i ' ;' . ., i ,
Last night the House elected Messrs.
Lord, Knott, Jenks, Hyndo, McMa
hon, Wheeler and Hoar to raanago
the impeachment case. The two last
named are Republicans aud all are
good lawyers. Secretary Belknap
has employed ex-Senator Matt. Car
penter and other distinguished law
yers to conduct his defence. They
will first plead to Mie jurisdiction,
claiming that Belknap's resignation
prevents impeachment. This is an
interesting question that has nevor
vet been before the Senate and tho
judgment on it will be looked for
with interest by all parties. It is
thought that the legal question raised
will be decided without any partisan
ship. The bill making silver dollars
a legal tender in all sums np to fifty
dollars, and smaller silver coins in all
sums to twenty-five dollars, passed
the house on Friday. The Treasuror
is authorized to issue these coins for
the redemption pf fractional currenoy.
The Chi istiancy resolution, a substi
tute for that of Senator Morton di
recting an investigation of the Mis
sissippi election,' passod the Senate by
a nearly strict party vote. Senator
Key of Tennessee, tho only Democrat,
voting lor the biil. C. S. Bell, for.

fied that he had been employed as a
detective in the Interior department
and was sent by the President and

One item of news from Europe is
portentious. it is said that tho czar
of Russia will soon abdicate in favor
of the Czaroveitch. The former has
been the steady friend of the Emperor
William and Bismarok. and the latter
is well known to have an antipathy
to everything German. Several of
the Russian papers are openly advis
ing the Servians and Montenegrins to
assist tho Herzegovinians. The Czar
oveitch is one of the ablest generals
in Europe and is supposed to have
ereat military ambition. The pur
chase of the Suez canal by England to
strengthen her position in England,
and the great accossion to the power
of the German Empire have aroused
the jealousy of the Russians, and it is
thought that this movement portends
au effort to extend the Russian Em
pire to the Bosphorus and consolidate
its power by establishing a Solavio
Empire on the borders of Germany.
Such a resolution upon the part ol
Russia would pluo:;e all Europe into
the bloodiest war of centuries.
