Or. Sherman has held that about $140.000,-000 must be held to keep the Safe aide for redemption in order to make no the deficiency has suspended the Quot weekly Purchase Bonds. In the meantime the revenues were declining it was thought that All that could be accomplished from the Revenue the month would be to expenses replace the deficiency in the redemption. The situation now books better than was expected while the revenues a a not so great As for the period last year still they Are so Large As to encourage the Hope that there will be some surplus to apply to the debt.

Special to the Cincinnati commercial. Washington january 21.�?the president is not pleased with the Shilly shalling the part Congress with the proposition to place general Grant the retired list. He preferred that they create the office Captain general for Grant but Many republicans including general Sherman other High army officers opposed this the president then gave his adhesion to the Mccook Bill to place Grant the retired list with the rank a general in the army. In conversation with members the president urged this As in every Way proper fitting. General Logan finding the House slow to act the Mccook Bill introduced a somewhat similar Bill in the Senate which the military committee that body like that the House sat Down upon. The advocates Tia measure do not give up the matter but have about concluded that they will have to wait for a Republican Congress. The president is a Good Deal a a Grant Man a As the term goes. When he heard that Grant was Defeated at Chicago Garfield nominated he said to an intimate Friend a my Joy at the Success Garfield is saddened by the thought that the greatest name in our military history has been dragged through the mud mire a political contest Defeated at that the president opposes a third term for anybody hut to see Grants name dragged into political contests displeases him no Little. Much ado about nothing. 8pecl�l to the Cincinnati commercial. Washington january 21.�?in conversation with your correspondent recently Hon. Alex. H. Stephens expressed himself with a Good Deal Freedom in reference to the pending a Morgan joint rules for counting the electoral vote. A the introduction this measure during the present session Congress was ill advised a a said . Stephens a was no emergency exists demanding it. The election Garfield is beyond All question any measure looking to a change in the a manner counting the electoral vote might As Well have gone Over until after the inauguration the next a do you anticipate any trouble about the counting Al the to tet a no i do not. But still it is difficult to forecast where the actions men Are a Factor. The fools Are not All dead yet. But if trouble arises it will be the Northern democratic leaders who will bring it about. They Are Ever free to bluster but generally afraid to strike. They would run As in the past use the South As a cats to Rake the chestnuts from the fire. A the rank file the party in the North Are pure Well meaning but there Are leaders among them with Samuel Tilden at their head seeking Only their own selfish ends stopping at nothing to secure these another member Congress from Georgia . Felton is outspoken in his views against Tho so called Morgan joint Rule. In conversation with your correspondent he said a i View this joint Rule As a political trick a Means attempting to secure partisan ends. At be6t it is but a temporary arrangement for which there is no need which if passed will be repealed by the next Congress. Everybody admits Garfield selection. To doubt it to Institute measures to defeat prejudice the casting the electoral vote for him is madness Llie present Mode counting the electoral vote is effectual constitutional. If Auy legislation is needed it is in the nature a Btl by both houses cod Gross to Defino the constitutional provisions. The Morgan joint Rule is a dangerous measure giving to one House Congress the right to disfranchised a there Are Many symptoms that the democrats will not he Able to pass the joint Rule. Evon should there be a quorum democrats which seems impossible to get together several them like Felton Georgia will not vote Tor the measure thus All Chance its passage passes away.

The present investigation if prosecuted will have the same result As the others namely that the Public gets the news in time to have it discussed before the Senate takes action that the Senate can to help it. There never was probably never will be Auy treaty that can be kept from the press. As a matter fact the chinese treaty was no great secret. The Day before it was printed in full the main Points wore Given in these dispatches. The foreign correspondence the new York papers also contained All the Points several weeks ago the chinese minister Here his assistants had copies which they did not esteem As a tremendous secret. In fact Public curiosity was very slight not one Man in fifty would Stop to read the document if Laid before him. The investigation ordered by the Senate is very silly Only provokes ridicule. If there is such a an enormous amount dignity special to the Cincinnati commercial Washington january 21.�?the enormous appropriations for pensions together with the known fact that a heavy per cent. Of it is paid to those who have no right to be the Rolls Are it last attracting the serious attention members senators there is a Prospect that some measure Relief will be adopted. Illustrating the abuses that have grown up under the system a member Congress from one Tho Southern states tells your correspondent that he knows a Man in Liis District who lost his Arm in a saw Mill t to years Awer the War yet regularly draws a pension account the Lues Bis arm., he mentioned another instance Wile re a Man for a slight flesh wound that hardly left a scar no disability whatever managed to Dray $2,200 for arrears pensions. A this so called disabled Soldier a said the member quoted a can come to Washington whip any two members Congress in a fair fight disabled indeed he Isnit disabled fifty cents your correspondent asked Tbs member Why he did not report these frauds to the pension office. His answer illustrates the difficulties correcting frauds Othis class. A ooh a he replied a a it a none my business to report them. They would become my everlasting so it goes All Over the country. It is very rarely the Case that a member Congress reports a fraudulent pensioner. They Are fur More Apt to interest themselves in getting pensions without Nice discrimination As to whether the applicants Are justly entitled under the Laws. It is correctly said believed by those who have Given intelligent attention to the subject that there Are men in Congress who would vote the army $100,000,000 annually in pensions rather than lose their seats in Congress. The pension passion is a very pretty one to play upon the member who gets the most Money for his a Edees talc to is Apt to be returned. But in the aggregate it works havoc with the National Treasury. It is now the fifteenth year after the close the War yet the expenditure account pensions is More than double what it was in 1866 1867. In fact i4 is More than three times As great As in 1866. Yet the pension budget usually becomes less As the War period recedes. Fifteen years after the close the revolutionary War the pension appropriation was Only $92,256. Their Are instances in the past two years where Twenty men have received More in arrears pensions than was paid to All the survivors the revolutionary War fifteen years after it closed the per capita payments in pensions Are now More than forty times greater than at a like period after the close the War the revolution the War 1612. In 1860 including what few were left the revolutionary pensioners the Many surviving pensioners the War 1812 the mexican War including All these the appropriation for pensions was hut Little Over $1,000,000. At All previous occasions in our history the pension expenditures have declined As the War period receded but these conditions Are now reversed the further we get from the War the greater becomes the expenditure account pensions.

Indianapolis january 21.�?it is apparent to the republicans in the legislature that it will be useless to attempt any party legislation in this general Assembly. The close vote in the Senate the uncertainty the support Poindexter make it useless to attempt to Force any Mensure through the Senate Wutoh would eur counter the organized opposition the democrats. While the republicans May regret the incompleteness their Victory this state affairs will doubtless prove fortunate for them in Many respects in that it will prevent any extreme legislation which might react to the injury the parly it has been suggested that by passing Bills first in the Senate having them amended in the House to suit party demands which amendments the Senate might be forced to concur in by the vote the lieutenant governor the republicans could outwit the democratic Oppio Silton. But such a trick is not regarded i Fritz Tavor by a number Republican senators it would be very liable to fail by the disapproval . Poindexter. It is pretty generally conceded therefore that the Republican will make no Effort toward a a captor Tion mint the legislative districts this session. Even if there were a Republican majority in the Senate it is doubtful if the republicans would make Bast to pass a Bill for they have found that it is impossible to make districts to suit every member the result is a great Deal disappointment dissatisfaction ill feeling. Many the senators Are therefore not sorry that the party is relieved this Burden. If Congress should reduce change the states represent Tiou in Congress a congressional will course be necessary but if the present legislature have Thi duty to perform the republicans Hope to Frame such a Bill that some the More Liberal democrats in the Senate will not make any resistance to it. A Bill to reorganize the benevolent institutions is being prepared it will doubtless pass. There is a general desire among Republican members the same desire is also expressed by several fair minded democrats influence in their party to pass some sort a Bill that will forever remove the benevolent institutions from the corrupting influence politics. This has Beech done in other states has been proved to be possible. It is believed by those who have Given most attention to the subject that this would be accomplished by abolishing All salaries for trustees giving the governor the Power to appoint the trustees. It is Ali ought that if there is no salary connected with the office trustee the office will not be Claime&Ltj. a Reward for party services the governor will be left tree to Confer the place As an honorary distinction upon men who Are Able to give a portion their time to the work solely for the Good the state the cause humanity. There Are a few extremists composed principally those who want places their friends who think that a what is Worth doing is Worth Hsiug for l flan s in Noraj fit pm is Able to for having its work done a that a the labourer is worthy Bishire a so at length. But the sentiment seems to be strongly in favor the other plan. It is proposed also to make a Large directory jutting the management All the institutions under one Board giving the democrats a minority representation. The republicans Desiro pass a non partisan Bill govern the institutions solely in the interests the afflicted people for whom the institutions Ore established they will put the responsibility for defeating such a Bill upon the democrats. It is said that several democratic senators Are dissatisfied with the present management the benevolent institutions will cooperate to pass a fair non partisan Bill. It therefore seems probable that a Bill reorganizing the benevolent institutions will pass. Bills reorganizing the management the penal reformatory institutions the state similar to tie plan mentioned above will also Likely be pressed this session. Senator Chapman has already introduced a Bill which consolidates both state prisons under one management makes other Radical changes it is said to he a very just fair measure. Whatever measures Are passed will be a mild equitable nature the republicans Are to he congratulated that circumstances do not permit any other course. The party will be the gainer in the end.

Major Gordon appeared for the prisoner asked Only that the paper to properly drawn up saying that the showing against Niedrich was the worst he had Ever known to be made against a criminal.
