had no idea, however, until the re
cent exposure of old .Jesse's tricks
in Cincinnati, that the Grant fami
ly could be bought so cheaply. It
seems that it only required -s.300 to
secure a guager's place for a noto
riously dishonest man, and one who
had already been removed from
the same position for misconduct
in oilice. -Old Jesse was (-ven will
ing to divide this b'5'H) with the
Assessor who controlled the ap
pointing power. This would leave
Jesse 250, which he would have
to divit.o with his son Flyss, leav
ing the President ylL'o one of the
transaction. Even, if we admit
that every man has his price, it is
not to be denied that $1:2 5 is very
cheat) for the President of the
Fnited States.
Old Jesse's latest exploit is too
strongly confirmed to admit of any
doubt about it. The Assessor to
whom Jesse made his proposition
to divide the $500 to be received
for the appointment makes a clear,
pointed and unmistakable state
ment of the matter. Jesse's de
fense is not even so ingenius as
that of his sou Orville in a similar
difficulty.. Orville imitated the
golden silence which hio brother
Flyss lias found so profitable, and
did not even undertake to make an
explanation, while his father has
committed himself to an imbecile
imitation of John V. Farwell's ex
ample, and has placed the apocry
phal $500 to the credit of the poor.
It is evident that the younger
Grants are much smarter than
their progenitor as was Schneider's
boy who whipped his daddy.
It does not seem altogether right,
though the principle is a Christian
one, to visit the sins of the father
upon the son, and perhapF, if old
Jesse's transactions we're record,
no one would think ol making the
President responsible for it. Hut
as it. is only one among the many
rakish sores and pimples which at
test the family corruption, we must
conclude that the President was at
least equally interested with the
President's father in the $500 trans
action. Though it would at first
seem almost impossible to conceive
that the Grant family can be bought
at so low a figure, it must be ""re
membered that there are a o-rcat
many of them, and, having the
tield entirely to themselves'they
can coin money even at cheap rates.
This latest transaction should al-o
teach the lesson that hard cash,
though it be small in amount, w ill
go further than a larger equivalent
in cigars, horses, or even houses
and lots. The family is now well
provided with the" latter, and
money is the only reliable means
henceforth for securing oilice.

of maintaining this supremacy
: could not be intrusted to
Lieutenant Governor Johnson,
who, although a Republican, is re
garded with great respect as a lib
eral, upright ami just citizen.
Clayton therefore set himself to
work to have him removed, with a
view ot having iMallory appointed
his successor. Jle enteied upon this
work with all the more, determina-
much to the chagrin and mortilica-
tion of the bar of this citv, not to
say the disgrace of the bench was
not sustained. Chief Justice Me
Clure and Justice Dennett were
barefaced in the perpetration of
this outrage against law and jus' ice.
Justice (iregg and Harris dis
sented. The writ was issued ami
served upon Johnson ; upon his
showing Cla vton his designs and
intentions, the war for power and
a vindication of the law ensued;

vote of forty-two ayes to thirty

signed, their places bein"- filled by
3IcClure and iSennett, the former
of whom has heen impeached, and
from all accounts deserveelly so.
A majority of the Senate be-ing
for (.'lay ton it is entirely controlled
in his interest, and has been ad
journed as long :ts that course
will serve1 the purpose of their
master, Clayton. Senators are
secreted so that the Sergeant-at-arms
of the Senate cannot, lind
them. This continued adjourn
ment of the iseuate affords Clayton
plenty of time to look about him
and prepare for the future-, which
he thinks himself sure ot, as in any
eve nt, even if articles of impeach
ment be served upem the Senate,
he is sure of acquital, as he owns
fifteen, more than half of the whole
number of Senators. What, he is
contending for is to place iMallory
in Johnson's place as Lieutenant
Governor, and in the line of suc
cession to him when he leav es f e r
Washington, where he is due on
the 4th of March. All of the brag
and bluff which he has played
during the past week was put on
with a view to excite Congress
and Grant to some action in his
favor. For this, however, there is
no hope, because Grant is the un
yielding friet id of Senator McDon
ald, who, together with Senator
Rice and Representatives Rogers,
Howels and Roots, is sternly op-pe)se-el
to Clayton and determined
upon his overthrow. We know
that the United States troops have
orders from Washington to hold
themselves in re-adine-ss to act ibr

think, knowing how earnestly
Rrooks, who has the absolute man

be largely made up of both these
classes. Fpham, Major General
of the militia, is a strong Clayton
man, and would willingly lend
himself, as he has often done before,
to Clayton's vilest purposes; but
without the rank and file he is

up, Clayton is opposed by the
whole Congressional delegation,
by Congress and Grant, by a ma
jority of the House, by a majority
of the people of all shatles and
political faith,' and by all the
United States civil officers in Ar
kansas, and can only rely upon a
maje)rity of the Senate and three
members of the" preine Court,
who received their appointment
upon the distinct understanding
that 4hey would statu! by him

status of the embroglio that may,
be-fore it ends, lead tej icsults that
all good men everywhere would

discovered that for a long time he
had lived in all the squalor and
wretchedness of ahject poverty.
His habitation was a little apart

crable building. It was lighted
by a very small window, patlially
covered with heavy wooden bars
fastened to the window-frame with
st rong screws, and on the door were
no less than eight different bars
and locks. Totally devoid of all
furniture1, save a broken table-, the
room present ed a frightful picture
of wretchedness. A lillhv mat

raised from the lbor upon several
bricks, lay at tile end under the
window, and at its side stootl a

jewelry such as breastpins (many
of them set with diamonds), chains
an 1 ri igs separated by siteets of
blotting-paper. There were no
signs ef lire, noranv place wherein

stores of je'Wi lry the wretched man
owned large amounts of real estate.

Free-Love Socialism-
From the St. Louis Times.!
It may not be generally known
to the public that, there are in this
city the elements of what is com
monly known as a "community"
or societ', formed tin the basis of
what they call "mutual assistance,
co-operative labor, and common
property.1" Such, however, is a
fact. About three years ago, the
pioneers in the enterprise, thinking
that they had strength enough to
make a start, and relying upon the
promises of pretended friends, left
St. Louis and established themsel
ves in Jasper county, in this State.
There they struggled along till last
Summer. Those upon whom re
liance had been placed for assist
ance, afte r the first movement, how
ever, failed to fulfill their promises.
The land had been bought on time,
and they found themselves unable
to meet their obligations. So they
were obliged to disband about the
middle of last Summer, and give
up their lands, upon which consid
erable improvements had been
made. Before the disorganization
the community numbered ninemen,
six women and twenty- seven chil
dren. Some of the members at
once moved further west, declar
ing it to be their intention to buy
land where it was cheaper ami con
tinue to propagate the principles
ol Communism, ami form another
such organization as soon as possi
ble. Others returned to St. Louis
to gather additional strength, re
cruit their numbers, and make a
new start.
Among these was Alexander
Lcngley, the leader in the move
ment, ami a man who has been
pretty nearly fill hi life endeavor
ing to combine in practice the prin
ciples of business, social and peliti
cal co-operation, having been a
member ot the famous "Phalanx,"
which attracted so much attention
some years age), and also for some
time a member of the Icarian com
munity of Iowa. There are now
over 200 Communists in St. Louis,
and those who are in a position to
know say they have reason to bei
lieve that quite a number are dis
posed to look upon the doctrines
with favor. Their publication, or
organ, called the Coramajiist,
winch was suspended for some time,
has just been revived, and the as
surance is held out that it will be
issued regularly.
The organization of the support
ers of the theory is being gradual
ly perfected, ami they have attain
ed such strength as to make an ex
position of their principles of no
little interest to the public, especial
ly so since this is perhaps the first
movement of the kind in the State,
and it is proposed to establish one
of those societies near the city.
The fundamental basis of the
theory advanced by the St. Louis
Communists is -"friendship, in its
practical workings." They hold
that as friends they should be will
ing to share equally all their pos
sessions, and that only thus can
true friendship be proven. This is
what they call reducing friendship
to a science. They would have
one treasury, a common table1,
spend their ie-asure time in society
together, and give the youth the
same advantage of education. ... In
short, they would make the com
munity one great family,-and a fa
vorite argument is that there neeel
be no parting or separation of fam
ilies except by death. In reply to
the query which naturally arose
in their reporter's mind as to
whether the community would not
se)on become too large, the reply
was that communities should
swarm, just as bees do, and that
by this, propagation of the theeu y
"a complete revolution wouhl be
workeel in society, in politics, in
law, and everything." It is claim
ed that another great advantage to
be gained from a co-operation in
business would be freedom from
care and trouble, and plenty of time
for social iiPercourse ami lccrea
tion. As regards the government
of tiie community, they grant that
some rides are necessary, and pro
pose to elect some one who shall
carry out these rules according to
the wishes ot the community, but
who can be deposed just as soon
as he fails to give satisfaction to
the fixed majority... Many of these
societies are kept up and controlled
by one master minel, and s-uch, the
St. Louis Communists intimate,
would not be the case with them.
Concerning religion, they propose
to grant the greatest libe.rtyof con
science, and a man may believe
pretty much as he chooses on that
of the peculiar features of
the theorv is the prcatical declara
tion of woman's rights. Men and
women are to be em an exact equal
ity, and the vote of" one counts just
as much and no more than the
other. The community wouhl in
troduce the democratic principle of
our Government into society, into
business, into the family, and ev
erywhere, thus abolishing all dis
tinctions of wealth, learning, sex
and castes of every kind. The
bearing of these "principles" upon
marriages and the social evil .are
of special interest, and to these
points particular attention was giv
en iii our inquiries. It was declar
ed that the community would take
away every inducement for mhr
riage except "pure, unalloye d affec
tion." No woman wouhl be driv
en into it for the sake of support,
because all wouhl be provided for
in this respect, whether married or
not. Then, after marriage, all the
business being attended to by a
committee, there would be nothing
to cause disagreement, and their
time would be devoted to ;i culti
vation of the aflectionsand looking
after their children. This state ol
affairs w ouhl abolish the social evil,
it is claimed, on the ground that
the larger proportion of abandoned
woman5 lall to that degredatiou
through want, At present the
Communists, as regards the inter
course between men and women,
will live in accordance with the
laws of the State, but it is expect
ed that alter a time some special
provision in the marriage laws will
be made in their favor. Indeed,
- uMj33paaa
in ineir tneoreticai, ideal commu
nity, there are no marriage laws at
all, but the same unlimited "free -dom"
as in religion. Those who
wish will unite themselves as man
and w ife with , some ceremony.
Others will live together in the con
nubial relation without 3ny binei
ing contract, continuing together
as long as they choose and then
separating. .; If there be some in
the community . w ho indulge in
promiscuous intercourse, it will not
be regarded by the community
as pi ostitution, because "simply
prompu-d by love." 'The offspring
of such intercourse wouhl be rear
ed the same as the other children,
and their .mothers, simply looked
upon as "unfortunate."
As already hinted, the leaders
and exponents of the theory "pro
pose to settle this time somewhere
near the city, and onone of the.
railroads leaving here. They also
have it in. mind to hold meetings
before long and invite free discus
sion of their "principles."
A Horrible Death.
A gentlemen from Hamilton,
Ohio, gives the 'particulars of an
accident so horrible in its sicken
ing details as to be almost beyond
credence. The circumstances are
as follows : -.
On Satuielay morning week, car
penters set to work in the third
story of Heckett's paper mill, in
that town, for the purpose ol mak
ing repairs and improvements in
the third story of the building.
In the eourse of their repairs it be
came necessary to take up part of
the floor. ' o
After this had been done, it
seems the carpenters went to anoth
er portion of the building for the
purpose of preparing material to
complete thu improvement. It ap
pears that this aperture was direct
ly over the huge hopper on the sec
ond lh)or, used ter grinding rags.
1 lie carpenters it seems careless
ly and culpable failed to erect
any barricade around this hole,
thus leaving it a death-trap to any
unfortunate who might happen to
pass that way. During the after
employed in the establishment,
were passing through the third
story when one of their number,
Miss Martha RreckinhenrP,- who
was in the lead, suddenly disap
peared through the hole1. No soon
er did her companions discover
this than the horrible thought
Hashed upon them that she had
'fallen inte the1 huge jaws of .the
rag-hopper below. Indeed, they
had iHt much room for doubt, for
the next instant the shrieks of he
