tier tale by X. U. Ui a-o.
' Washinqton, D. C, Deo. 25, 1876.
Tbia being the Christmas season
Congress is only in session as a mat
ter oi form. Half a quorum of Sena
tors march up Capitol Hill daily-and
then march down again, but, oi
course, no business is transacted.
Littlo will bo dono till after the 1st
of January. The Departments, too,
are on half-time from "The night be
fore Christmas" to the first day ot the
now year. But this latter is of light
importance as little has been dono in
any of the Departments sinco the
main election in September. After
that election, Chairm; n Chandler put
in operation the patent system by
which he first robbed the clerks of
their salary to make an election fund,
and then robbed the Government by
sending the clerks into the fiold to
work for Hares and Wheeler. For
the last fifteen years I have been fa
miliar with Departmental service and
never knew anything like the demor
alization in it ot the last four months.
Ot course, the officers and clerks have
done little official work having bceu
busy in Rooking np employment in
anticipation of March 4th next. It is
amazing, but some of the officials are
sending to claimants, in reply to com
plaints of official delay, a circular to
the effect that such delay is caused
by the reduced appropriations made
by the Democratio House and. the
consequent reduction of the number
of clerks. This is tho champion fib
of tho Centennial year. There are
clerks enough, but clerks who are
making speeches for Hayes and
Wheeler in New York and Indiana
are not forwarding public business in
Gen. Harlow, who was sent South
by Republicans because they thought
be was as much a partisan as Senator
Sherman and knew he would of more
service thau that statesman, in that
he would be believed, has created the
sensation of the season. The portion
of tho Radical vineyard assigned to
Barlow was Florida. Wm. E. Chand
ler is to do the manipulating of the
votes, but it was thought Barlow, by
reason of the general confidence felt
in him by all parties, would bo of use
when papers had to be signed for pub-
ication. He has signed ono paper
and it virtually gives the State to Til
den. Gen. Barlow is a radical Re
publican, was in the Union army and,
no doubt, went to Florida believing
and hoping he would help Hayes by
Reports from the House Investigat
ing Committees are also to the effect
that South Carolina should have been
counted for Tildon, and that the elec
tion in Louisiana was peaceable and
fair and the Democratio majority of
0000 was largely made np of negro
Senator Conkling is mentioned
among those not relied upon to sanc
tion extra constitutional means for
the inauguration of Hayes; so, won
der of wonders, is Senator Ferry.
While there may be nothing in either
of these reports, we can readily see
how a man with the ability and
standing of Senator Conkling, or with
the good opinion ot himself that Sen
ator Ferry's present elevation has
given him, might hesitate to take a
step that might put him for all time
on a level with the 'politicians who
have so far taken charge of the Hayes
interest since Tilden was elected.
The New York Tribune suggests
that the Senate may consume tbe
time between now and the 4th of
March next, in discussing the Presi
dential question so that when the
House comes to elect a successor to
President Grant, the new Honsc, not
the present one, will elect. The next
House will be Democratic, but the
majority of the States will have in
it a larger representation of Republi
cans than of Democrats. The mani
test dishonesty of this course does not
shock the Tribune, though Horace
Greeley, no doubt, writhes in his
coffin, at the bare mention of it in the
paper he created and loved. Fortnn
ately, there is a constitutional provis
ion it the House fail to choose a Prts
iueul "before the 4th day of March
which will prevent this suggested
fraud. There is a general belief that
the next eight or ton days will indi
cate just how the Presidential ques
tion will be settled, and that only
peaceable and legal means will bo em
Fcu Showing the TrueJ meaning of
From the Sun.
Washington. Dec, 26. A soocial
committee from the joint committoe
ot both branches of Congress on tho
oountingof the electoral votes for Pres
ident ami Vioe President, is engaged
in compiling the proceedings and do
bates of Congress relating to that sub-
jeot. A critical examination of the
proceedings of the Convention which
framed the Constitution, aud the sub
sequent proceedings of Congress
leaves no doubt as to the meaning of
tbe Constitution and the purpose of
its iramors relative to counting tho
electoral votes. It scorns that tho
framors of the Constitution did not
regard tho President of tho Senate as
a person oi so groat importiuce and
ot such unlimited power as ho soems
to no regarded by radical Republicans
ot tho present day. Indoed iu the
origiual draft of tho Constitution,
there was no Vioo President provided
for, and by ono article tho Senate was
to choose its own President and other
officers. A part of one of the orticlos
reported by tho committoe of eleven,
to whom tho various propositions
were rcferrod, was the following :
Tbe PresiJonl of tbe Senate shall in that
Douse open all the certiflcutes, and tbe votes
shall then end there be counted.
Pending the considciatioa of this
article the following entry was made
upon the journal :
It wua mured nJ seconded to insert the
words, "In tbe presence of I ha Senate and
lNuse ol Ucpretti'iilu'.ivcs," after the word
"couuted,' winch was passed in tbe affirma
tive yeas 6, uuys 4.
Tbe journal ot the Convention does
not show that any motion was made
to strike out tho words "in that
louse," which ocour in the original
draft, nor does it show why tho words
"in the presence of the Senate and
louse ot Representatives were in
serted iu the place ot the words "in
that House" InsuaJ of alter tbe word
"counted," as was voted by the Con
vention; but it m evident that tbe
question was fully considered by the
committee of revision. In tbe reso-
ulion providing for the first appoint
ment of electors and the election ot
Senators and Representatives the iol-
owing clause appears :
That the Senators and RcprcsentatiTts
should convene at tbe time and place assign
ed ; that tbe Sonators should appoint a Pres
ident of the Senate for tbesole purposoof ie
ceiviofr, opening and counting tbe votes for
The same method of opening and
counting the vote was uniformily car
ried out at every suoceeeding Presi
dential election, tho proceedings and
debates of Congress furnishing over
whelming evidence that that tbe Vice
President was regarded as only a min
isterial officer, acting wholly without
judicial power. Whenever any ques
tion arose requiring judicial action It
was always anticipated by a joint rule
which gave this power into the bands
of the two Houses.
In reference to the Twenty-seoond
joint rulo, which radical Republicans
declare is not now in force, a passage
found in tbe Conarmwnal Ulobe
of 1873, prior to tho counting of the
electoral votes, which appoars to be
very good evidence that the Republi
can member of the Senate who offered
the resolution did not consider it in
the power ot one branch ot Congress
to abolish a joint rule without the con
current action of the otbor, however
differently he may have acted on that
subject recently. The following en
try is made :
Mr. Sherman submitted Ibe following con
current resolution, which was referred to tbe
Committee on Privileges and blections:
RtMved, 1 be Moose of Representatives
concurring, that tbe Twenty-second joint rule
Ot course, if one branch can rescind
a joint rule without tbe concurrent ac
tion ot the other, why did not Mr.
Sherman simply offer a resolution for
the action ot the Senate only?

An infamous scandal will be
brought to light shortly by Congres
sional investigation, to be offered in
the House, which will ask for inquiry
whether any member of the board of
police coracniHsioiicrs ui mo uiwivi,
of Columbia has attempted to use his
position to interfere with investigation
authorized by Congress, ibis will
be referred to the committee on the
District of Columbia, of which Buck
net is chairman. The Nul'wntd Jl-
publican, of which Wm. J. Murtagh
president of the police commission, is
editor, having charged .Major Kiel
ards, superintendent of the police do
tartmcnt, with collusion with gam
lers, the superintendent demand
ed investigation, which closed Tues
day. Col. Cooke, counsel tor the
board of police and for Major Rich
ards, yesterday published a card ad
dressed to Murtagh, in which he says
the public shall be mado acquainted
with base efforts employed by you
and others constituting a vilo con
spiracy to prostituto and use Richards
and the members of the detective
force to destroy or impair Congres
sional investigation, and to injuro
Hon. J. M. Whitthorno. Other mat
ters equally dishonorable and nefari
ous shall bo uncovored.
The point of the scinclal which
Cooko threatens to exposo is, that
certain members of the Washington
police board unsuooossfully endeavor
ed to use the publio police during last
session of Congress iu conspiracy
against Congressman Wbittnorno,
chairman naval committee. The al
leged proposition was to -entice
Whitthorno into a brothel or gam
bling den, and then raid tho establish
ment by the polico and arrest all
found therein, including Whitthorno,
and thus get means of smothering his
investigation of tho navy department
affair, or destroy its effect through
Whitlhorne's degradation. Robosou's
friends soout this story as a cunning
afterthought, without foundation ex
cept in diseased imaginations.

Sec. 4. That the maintouanoe invi
olate ot t'..o rights oi tho States, and
especially tho rights ofoauhStato to
order and control its own domestic
institutions according to its own judg
ment exclusively, is essential to that
bnlanco of power on which the porfco
ticn and endurance ot our political
fubrio deponds; and tee denounce the
LmIchs invasion by an armed force of
any Nate or lemtory, no matter
under what pretext, as among the grav
est of crimes.
Sec. 5. That the Administration
has far exoocded our worst apprehen
sion in its moasnreloss tubsorvienoy to
the exactions of a soolionbl interest, as
especially evident in its dosperate ex
ertions to toroe the infamous Lcoomp
ton Constitution upon the protesting
people of Kansas; in its attempted
euforoomcnt everywhere, on land and
sea, througb intervention of Congress
and the Federal Courts, of the ex
treme pretensions of a local interest,
and in its general and unvarying
abuse of tbe power entrusted to it by
a confiding pooplu. .
See 6. That the peoplo justly view
with alarm the rookless extravagance
of tho Government, that a return to
rigid economy and accountability is
indispensable to arrest the systematic
plunder of the publio treasury by fa
vored partisans, while the rocent
startling dovolopmonts ot fraud and
corruption at the Federal metropolis
shows that an entire change of Ad
ministration is imperatively demand
ed. The Danger Ahead.
It is no idle suggestion that the
oountry is at this momont in serious
danger from tho violence, unsurupu
lousness, and moditated infamy ot its
politicians. Acd unless the men who
claim to be tho statesmen of the Re
publican party interpose thoir voice
for moderation, and show some sense
and wisdom, instoad ot permitting
thomselves to be dragged along by
tho rushing and short-sighted orowd
of partisans, no man can tell how the
present criminal enterprises may end.
It is a totally new experience in this
country that our ordinary elections
aro to be decided by the sword. It
is a shame to the Republican mana
gers uf the country, now sitting in
thoir seats of power at Washington,
that they have not before this, indig
nantly rebuked the suggestion, more
especially whon coming from the
mouth of the President. Wo warn
them that they are making history and
forming precedents in this direction
altogether too fast.
Mr. Uonkling's reputed suggestion
that if things are allowed to go on in
their present way a littlo while longer,
Senators might be obliged to have
their own tiokels punched by a mili
tary officer before boing permitted to
take their seats, hits the nail on the
head. He would have been even near
er the mark if be bad said members
of tbe House. If tbe tactics put in

South Carolina in 1870, are right for
those Slates, they are right for Con
If Hayes is inaugurated by fiand ac
cording to the present programme, we
seo no reason in the action of the
present Administration to forbid the
supposition of tbe exercise of the mil

used in both those Slates when tbe
new Congress comes to assemble.
To be sure, the publio mind does
not now admit the possibility of such
inconceivable eflrontry. But it is an

Soma weeks ago orders were issued from
Washington transferring (Jen. Hancock to .
tbe Pacific coast, Uen. Sheridan from
Chicago to this city, succeeding Ueo. Han
cock, and directing Ueo. McDowell, lately
assigned to tbe division of the Pacific, to re
main io New York. This publication cre
ated mnck comment, and although tbe trans
fers were not thus made, It was ascertained
upon examination that several leaves of the
record at the war department covering tbe
time when orders were supposed to have
been torn out, and oo trace of them has since
been found. On. A. Ruford, of Kentucky,
who was at West Point with Grant aod
Sherman, now says: "I bave positive author
ity for saying that such an order was issued,
but tbat Ueo. Hancock absolutely refused
to obey orders transferring him to California.
I know tbat this is true, and that the order
was immediately returned by him accompan
ied by bis resignation, to take effect if tbo
order was not rescinded." The ordor was
revoked and dates destroyed, with what pur
pose, as just at that juncture of the political
situation Ueo. Sheridan was ordered to New
York, may be easily conjectured.
