THE NEXT SENATE.
The San Francisco Post furnishes
the following interesting estimate of
what the next Senate amy possibly
The present House of Representa
tives in composed ot 292 members,

aire nly by so large a majority it be
comes an important inquiry what the
political character ot the denale will
be. It is now composed ot 74 niem-
ers, representing 87 Stales, but I Vie
is one vacancy iu the Louisiana repre
sentation, leaving in tact but 73 Sena
tors. These are politically divided as
lollows: Republicans, 42; Democrat",

lions in New Hampshire and ConnecTl

trout those States, whose successors
are to bo chosen this year. New
Iamnshire will unl a Repub'icnn in
Crayiu's seat ami Connecliciii a Dem
ocrat in Eaton's. Giving the vacant
seat for Louisiant to the Democrats
and tho two Independents Ii oth
and Hamilton ti) tho Republican,
the Senate would stand: Republicans.
44; Democrats, 30. A Republican
majority ol 14. '
f The terms of twenty-six Senators
expire on the third ot March, 1877.
when President .brant goes out.
These are the Slates, from which
they ' hold : Alabama, Arkansas,
Delaware, Georgia, Ivt niucky, Louis-
inn , Mississippi, North lorolina,
Oregon, Tennessee. Texas, Virginia
and West Virginia; all Democratic,
ami entitled to 13 Senators. The
Republican Stales are Illinois, Iowit,
Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Mich
igan, Minnesota. Nebraska, New
Hamshire, New Jersey (having a Re
publiciu Legislature). Rhode Isliiud,
South Carolina and Wisconsin, being
entitled to 13 Senators, all to be Re
publicans from the present outlook.
Any estimnle that gives the Senator
from Illinois, Wisconsin or Minnesota
to the Democrats, or from North
Carolina or Florida to tho Republi
cans, is inadmissablQ. The 20 Sena
tors now in the Senate from these M
States (allowing one for tho vacant
seat Iroiil Louisiana) are classed: Re-
publicans, 10; Democrats, iu. in
the new Senate con venini' on March

ioritv of 8. There is a possibility
that this majority may bo cut uown
bv the ad.nissioii ot Ooioraao.
Should that Stale elect a Democratic
Legislature in October, tho Senate
would then stand: ICcpntilicans, si ;
Democrats, 35. An I even wuh two
' ...... vr
more Democrats adled Irom JNeW
Mexico, in the Auiunin of 1877. there
would still be a Republican majority
of four in the Senate. Hut shoul i
Senators Hoolh ami Chrisliancy,
elected a independents, go over to
the Democracy, where a few hot
headed and short-sighted Republi
can have been trying their best to
send tfH'in, the result would bo a lie
vote 39 to 39. Iu that case the
election of the St. Is mis ticket would
give the casting vote and the Senate
to the D.-inocrtcy. ; We fear no such

It was Grant, says the New York
oun, who stirred up those assaults on
corruption, as we learn from tho Cm
tinnati Tunti, and it is he who de
serves credit for audi advantages as
uiny accrue irom inera. Who can
doubt it ? Look at his decided action
against Sccor Robeson. Look how
ho fell upon Schenck, two or three
years after he had found out all about
his Emma mine losses in London.
Look at the remarkable way in which
he assisted in the exposure and pros
ecution of Babeock during the St.
Louis whiskey trials. Look at his
high-toned course in the Belknap
business, when ho sent him a letter
regretting his resignation. Look
how ho dealt with Brother Orvil,
when lie ascertained how Orvil was
running tlie Indian posts which he
had got for him. Look how he is
waging war against Boss Shepherd ;
how he is detet mined to got hold of
the safo burglars ; how he is stimula
ting Bristow to further activity; how
he is urging and helping the investi-
ig committees ot Congress to get
at tho bottom facts of all the rascali
ties in his administration. Can any
body be so blind as not to seo all
around the evidencies of Grant's en
ergetic campaign against every kind
ot corruption? His friends may fall ;
he cares not.. Ilia party and admin
istration may be shown up; but what
of it, when the country is to be sav
ed? He himself nay be found out;
but even thai is merely a passing in
cident of his self sacrificing struggle.

WILLIAMS AS A FRIEND.
Washington, April 21. The testi
mony of D. P. Thompson, Governor
ot Idaho, leaves no doubt as to the
part ex-Attorney General Williams
played in helping J. J. Holifnan, his
friend and loriuer partner, to levy
tolls on Oregon surveying contracts.
Hoffman was not a surveyor and had
no right to have anything to do with
irovenunent surveys or to be the ben
etioi'.rv o! suoh contracts, but he a
a friend of Williams', and Williams
wanted to put money in his, Hoff
man's. Miuket. The matter was ar
ranged in this wise: One Meldrurn
was a surveyor, and to him was award
d. unon Williams' influence, two con
tracts, worth $15,000, tcr which award
it was stiuiilaied before hand that
Hoffman was to have $2,000 as a bo

to procure the cont acts. The bar

follows: "The contract that Williams
signed was that it the Surveyor Gen

THE WORST YET.
A correspondent of the Hartford

that paper as follows:
"The National Crmrtrrv ring it
the vilest ot the whole. It is t -e
strongest that has located about thcr
National Capital though heaven
knows the others are strong enowgh.
It had its origin just afler the war,
when they got contracts to removff
bodies from the battle fields in tho
various Southern States to the sever
al Nationul Cemeteries. Of all the
frauls in tho world, thin shocking

The contractors received a certain
sum for removing each body ; and to
mako tin joi prohtnlile thev acivralff
cut tho body in pieces and made ser
eral of it, thus increasing their pay.
Often when a great number wtre-
fotiud buried in a ditch, thev would
takeout a half dozen bones and nail
them up in a box, and get paid for it
as one body.

that these things wire done wero o(

these bones was another job by which
many thousands ot dollars were
robbed from the Goverdment. Thi

A PILE OF PAPERS.
Gen. II. V. Boynton writes to th
Cincinnati Gazette an interesting;
etter about, the recorde ot tbe Re
bellion. He suys: Few had any idea
ot tho enormous bulk of the material
which makes up the records cfthw
late war. It was stored in mo'rJ'IV
those contain little else. One ot thes
s devoted to what are termed the re
cords of discontinued commands, and,
as this title indicates, they constitute
a great portion ot the field records of
the war. This building is forty feet
by eighty, aad is four stories high,.
Eight ranges of wide shelves run
lengthwise through each story from'
floor to ceiling, and two-thirds of these
are packed ns close as auy book-.
keeper's shelves with immense ledgers.
which are the books ot letters receiv
ed nnd sent, the telegraph books, bat-;
le report books, prder books, and all .
he great variety of records which)
wen kept al eaun Headquarters, ana
regularly copied into these volumes.
The rest of the shelves are packed
close with unentered papers ot all
kinds, but each containing some sorap-
of wsr history. There are three hun
dred and titty cords of rooords in thia
ono building. Ihe huge volumes,,
which look down from the long line -
of shelves on either side of tbe narrow
aisles, are the books and papers ot the

England has ceased descanting
upon the coi rupion of American poli
tics, and is directing attention to tne -
lisclosures made by the lwyal com- ,
mission in examining into tho corrup
tion of elections al Norwich. It it
lound that there has not been a timer
since the Englishmen, in many part '
of the oouniry, had a vote to tell but
they would sell it. or generations ,
every freeman has looked forward to
bis arrival at tne legal age as a urns
when his income' might be increased
by the sale of his vole. Before 1867
there were but 17,000 votera in Nor
wich, but an act passed at that time .
added nearly 10,000 to the number
ot voters, which the commission
thinks was simply an addition to the
purchasable material already in the '
market. The commission finds that
several thousand voters can be pur
chased at each election by the party
paying the highest price. Ahe cor
ruption is so broadcast and so thor- '
oughly implanted in the customs ot
ibe lower classes that the commitee
make no attempt to recommend a :
remedy. A suggestion has been
made in some of the papers that the '
town in which corruption was the
worst, should be entirely disfranchis
ed, bat it is not probable this will be
resorted to. The Commission has
shown a worse state of corruption
than could possibly exist in thia
country, and it may led the English
press to withdraw their attention for
a time from the shortcomings of other
people and engage in a little serious
