Jan. 17 1878. i
I do not believe that .11 the Repub-
licans iu the House oared on general
prinoiples to vote against tbe investi
gation resolutions passed t be other day.
-There are many of them who would
like to see an exposure of what has
been corrupt in the administration of
affairs in the laBt dozen years. They
all voted against it it is true but some
may have hud an honest idea that in-
vestigations as proposed in tbe resolu-
tions would do more harm than good
They were wrong of course but there
is excuse for them. Let us hope that
Demuoratio committees will shun the
secret and unfair kibd of investigation
held in the departments here since Mr.
Hayes was inaugurated. Give us open
and fair ones and thus disageeeably
disappoint tliose honest Republicans
who voted against investigation in the
fear that their own party taotios would
be pursued. I write this iu the belief that
there are in fact in tbe Republican
party many bonest and practical meu
who hope for a reform in the oivil ser
vice of the Government and aro willing
to help it aloDg no matter how deeply
their former leaders may be implicated.
What they desire I think is that per-
fect fairness should be shown. As good
citizens they are entitled to that and
as good oitizeos we ought to conoede as
much. Let us have no more secret in
However tbe resolutions are passed
and we are without doubt to have dur
ing this session a great number of in-
vestigations into what has been done in
several if not all the Departments.
Time and money so expended will be
well expended if as ia to be hoped the
investigations are so conducted as to
expose all who are guilty. Again let
us have no more secret investigations.
Though the bill of Secretary Sher
man for the issue of small bonds has
valuable features; it also has perni
cious ones. It proposes lor instance
that the bonda shall be receivable by
the United Statu only Id the purchase
of other Bonda. This adds another
olass of money to our already disgrace-
fully complex currency. Gold which
is received for all dues ; greenbacks
received for all but customs ; silver
received ia limited amounts for some
purposes and not for others are enough
diverse kinds of money. Secretary
Sherman will have to modify bia bill
considerably before it will be adopted.
The feature of yesterday was the fi
nancial speech of Senator Voorheea.
It attracted a Senate lull and waa ad
mitted by everybody to be a masterly
presentation of tbe subject. His de-
nunciation of tbe financial legislation
of the past dozen years and hit expo-
sure of the inooatiateneiea of Secretary
Sherman were exceedingly forcible.
Chairman Wood of the Ways and
Means Committee baa a plan for aim-
plifying the tariff. He is s man famil-
iar with the subject daring his whole
life peraaps more than any other aaa
now in public life. For this reason
aside from his position as chairman of
tbe committee charged with suoh af-
fairs liia tariff bill is entitled to con-
sideration. The works of the Ilayden Survey are
making us acquainted with horetofore
unknown regions rioh in minerals and
of great agricultural and erasing value.
It extends from Arisona to Montana
embraoinr the Territories of Utah Col-
orado Wyoming Idaho and Dakota.
This Survey has issued a series of
annual reports presenting the results
in a popular form for general distribu-
tion. A series of quarto volumes are
also issued embraoing purely scien-
tific matters for distribution to col-
leges libraries and soientifio specialists.
A series of bulletins are also issued
in which matters requiring special and
immediate attention may be found.
There nre also the miscellaneous pub-
lications suoh as meteorology distan-
ces and altitudes catalogues &o.

St. Louis January 16. It will be
recollected that when Ham Stevens
and others were arrested at Kansas
Citv. some three months ago for stu
pendous swindling in Texas lands
great anxiety was expressed to learn
the names of all those engaged in the
frauds and who issued bogus deeds.
These names or at least the greater
part of them are now supplied by spe-
cial agent Amos P. Foster of the Uni-
ted States postal service who arrested
Ham and Stevens and who has ever
since been engaged in working up tbe
ce. The publication of the names is
important for the reason that large
quantities of land were sold and con-
veyed by members of the gang in most
of the Western and Southern. States
and it is pretty certain that all the ti-
tles which have emanated for the past
eight or ten years from any of these
parties are fraudulent and of no value
whatever. They are as follows : K. K

throughout the Kingdom by a sermtl
be lately proaohed in Westminster
Abbey im wbioh he boldly denounoed
the belief in the dootrine of eternal
punishment and deolared it to be tb
offspring of bigotry and superstition.
He protested that the words "hell
damnation and eternal" should bo
and they would be omitted from the
revised editions ot the Bible ; and sea
thingly attaeked the teachings and
eharaoter of St. Augustine and his
views on "Material Hell." It is re-

while nine-tenths of the more thought-
ful members of the Established Church
and of the non-conformisU agree with
Canon Farrar in almost everything he
preaches on these subjects it was for
having expressed similar views then
held to be rank heresies Prof. Mau-
rice was expelled from the Chair ot
Theology at Kings College less than
twenty-five years ago. In other words
what were unpardonable heresies then
are now received as true dootrines of
the Churoh. In Elizabeth's reign Dr.
Farm's preaching would have sent him
to the stake At this day he is glori-
fied for proclaiming them. If he next
advanoea the thesis that there is no
"hell or damnation" hereafter as a
punishment for wickedness in the world
he will not need to go over to the Uni"
versalists he will remain at his ad-
vanced place with bis flock.
The Poet Barae
Burns was one of tbe few poets fit to
be seen. It has been asserted that ge-
nius is a disease the malady of phys-
ical inferiority. It is certain that wo
have heard of Pope the hunohbaok ;
of Soott and Bvroo oripples ; of the
epileptic Julius Cffisar who it is said
never planned a great battle without
going into fits ; and of Napoleon whom
a few years of trouble killed where
Cobbett (a man of talent not genius)
would have melted St. Helena rather
than have given up the ghost with a
full belly.' If Pope could have leaped
over five-barred gates he probubly
would not have written his inimitable
sofa and lap-dog poetry ; but it does
not follow that he would not have writ-
ten the "Essay on Man." And they
who assert that genius is a physical dig.
ease should remember that as true
critios are more rare than true povta
we have only one in our language Wil-
liam Haslitt ; so very tall and complete
men are rare as genius itself a fact well
known to persons who have the ap-
pointment of constables. And if it is
undeniable that God wastes nothing.
and that we therefore perhaps seldom
find a gigantic body combined with the
soul of iEolian tones it is equally un-
deniable that Burna was ao eiception
