THE EVIL OF THE DAY.
Addison, in his Cato, makes that illus

grown to be so wicked" that he 'iWas
surprised at nothing.'! The developments
of our modern national demoralization:are
so multiplied and heinous as to disarm
astonishment , however much they excite
a prominent Democrat in a single indignation and wound honest and patrio
cipafity. He grasped at power in tic sensibilities. It is very much the fah

In the field of Federal politics he never

mental to the war and its influences,'
mo 1. sly refuted.
After he preferred his request the Vice
President left the chair, and was not seen
in the Senate Chamber for the remainder
of the day. It is undeniable that the re
cent testimony before the Poland Credit
Mobilier committee, including particularly
that given to-day, places the Vice-President
in a very awkward position before
Congress and before the country. ' It in
very certain that perjury has been "com
mitted by some one, and painful as it may
be to give utterance to such a suspicion,
it is a fact that not a few of these who
have been among the warmest personal
and political friends of the Vice
President are not satisfied as to which
party this crime can be fastened upon.
The Vice-Fresident expresses Xhe utmost
confidence in his ability to clear himself
entirely of all damaging charges and suss
picions. It is now4 very plain that the
opportunity which he asked of the Senate
to-day caji be afforded him by no other
process than that of impeachment.

In a more maiked degree, perhaps, the
war told for evil on our political sj-stem
and national life. "The tinkle of the little
bell,' that could consign free and innocent
citizens to the damps of a dungaon was,
in a very large sens', the knell of Consti
tutional liberty while the license of those
days gave to office the charm of great
authority,' with the additional attraction
of great gains, not always lawful. Anid
yet, after all, the desensus Arcrni muft
have commenced before the war gave the
downward impetus ; and the fact is 00
flattering commentary on the stability pf
Republican institutions. j
The great and trying political evil pf
the day is the luet of office. It is the
giant evil which has prostituted the char
acter of the Government, which has lent
fuctitiouaJiuportauce to bad men, which
has made men of previous good name

which has ruptured the peace and dis

Vice-President. Yet if that officer is sin
cere in his expression of a desire to courl
the fullest investigation, it would appear
that he must himself favor the only
method by which lliat investigation can
be obtained. It has been reported that
Senators Patterson aud ilsou would
ask the appointment of a Senate commit
tee, which they have the undoubted right
to do, to investigate the charges made
against tbem. This 'mixing np of the
Vice-President and Vice-President elect
in these very unpleasant transactions is
regarded here as extremely unfortunate
by those of all shades of political opinion,
aud the wish and hope of all would l.e
that gentlemen who had been so highly
honored by their fellow-countrymen had
it in their power to prove the absence of
aught that could reflect in slighlett
degice upon their honesty and integrity.

This is what "Credit Mobilier" means, iu
the modern American and Congressional

literally a Credit on movables the Uui

It appears that, in this countr", the
Credit Mobilier is a ring fanned to enrich
those interested at the expense of the
natioiial government. In order to effect
this object, of course, influential persons
