Food for tlie Moralists.
Moralists can strike an easy bal
ance between New York's rqgard
for recreation and religion respec
tively, by comparing actors ear
nings with preachers. Beecher
gets 20,000; Edwin Booth, $100,
000 a year. Dr. Hall, of Fifth
avenue, and Dr. Dix, of Trinity,
ret 15,000: while E. A. Sotbern
earns over 3159,000 as lord Dun
dreary, and John E. Owens plays
thirty weeks annually for 90,000.
Talmadge preaches for SI 2,000,
and Joe .3e(Tprson plays forty
weeks as Rip Van Winkle
and earns 120,000: The scholar
ly and gifted Dr. Storrs has $10,
000 salary, and Maggio Mitchell
earns 30,000 to 50,000. Dr.
Guyler works hard and faithfully
for 8,000 a year, and Dr. Hep
worth for $5,000, while Dion
Boucicault the great adapter, has
just. finished a session as 'Sliau
graum,' etc., at 3,000 a week,
and his managers scold him
in the public prints because
he would not play longer
at the same price. Dr. Potter, of
Grace church, has $10,000 and a
parsenage: the eloquent Dr. Tiffa
ny has $10,000; Dr. Chapin gets
10,000; whle pretty M:ss Neilson
makes over 150,000 a year, and
"Fanny Davenport earns 1,000 a
week every week she plays. Com
mon players get starvation wages,
and so do common ministers. Ye
might name preachers, within
seventy-five miles who work like
beavers for three to four hundred
dollars, while the average salary of
our clergymen is less than the pay
of a horse-car conductor.
Superfluous Diplomatic Offices.
Of our treaties with England,
since the founding of this republic,
the treaty of peace in 17S3, Jay's
treaty of 171M-, Monroe's erf 1$UG
(not ratified -the treaty ol Ghent
in 1814, the treaties of 1S15 and
1318, and the four treaties of 1S2G
and 1827 wore negotiated by spe
cial commissioners; while the Ash
burton treaty of 1S12, the Clayton
Bulwer convention of 1S50, the
Elgin reciprocity treaty of 1854,
and the Lyons slave-treaty of 18C2
were negotiated at 'Washington by
the department of state. The la
test great treaty, the treaty of
"Washington, was negotiated by
two sets of special commissioners.
Tims all our most weighty treaties
with England, without exception,
have been negotiated either at
Washington, or, if in Europe, by
special commissioners. 'Of our
treaties with France those of alli
.ance and commerce in 17 8, the
treaty of 1800, and the Louisiana
.treaty of 1S03 were negotiated by
special commissioners, and that of
1822 at Washington. The Rives
claims convention of 1831 was the
-only "treaty of prime importance
negotiated bv our minister to Paris.
Among these special commission
ers figure -7)ohn and J. Q. Adams,
Franklin, Jay, Monroe, Pinkney,
Bayurd, Clay, Jonathan. Rush, Ells
worth, Livingston, an others. All
'.these historic facts were set forth
'before congress by Mr. Hewitt on
the 11th of Marc!), 1S78; yet the
senate then refused, and has again
refused, to diminish by a man or a
dollar our superfluous standing
diplomatic establishments. We
trust that the 4Gth congress will
aee to this.
For fifteen years no governor
of North Carolina has served out
this full term.
The Oregon Sentinel informs us
that there is a movement in the
southern counties of western Ore
gon to combine and effect a change
in the method of freighting from
San Francisco, leaving the Oregon
steamship routes and taking the
freight from the California rail
road at Redding. The Sentinel
The main argument in favor of
this movement is that the mer
chants find a market on the Red
ding route for a very large amount
of produce, while on the Roseburg
route there is no market at all. The
California company haul over three
hundred miles of road for 10 per
ton, while the Oregon company
charge an average of 15 per ton
for hauling over two hundred
miles of road, and this added to
steamer freight, marine insurance,
and the arbitrary measurement
rule, brings the aggregate freight
to Roseburg up to 20 per ton.
Another source of complaint is the
vexatious delay br the Roseburg
route. Freights from San Francisco
1 via Roseburg are usually five to six
davs longer in transit than freights
from the same place via Redding,
and the latter route shippers can
calculate with absolute certainty
when their goods may be loaded,
and this saves the expense of de
lay at the railroad terminus which
must be borne either by the ship
per or teamster. Another cogent
reason is the manifest indisposition
of the people of Douglas county to
keep their roads in passable con
dition, teamsters claiming that they
can haul twenty-five per cent,
more over he Sacramento or Scott
valley roads than through the black
mud of the Umpqua.
