If not to deceive and cheat the illit

Democrat inform the people why the
late Democratic Legislature introduced
the following requirements into the
election law? 1
I. Each man to vote in his own
Township, in order that

against intimidation and violence.
II. To vote on four separate pieces of
paper, and in four boxes j in order to

know how he is voting?
IV. To have no device on the tickets
by which an illiterate voter can dis-

years, witnout compounding, amount
to the enormous sum of $220,000,000,
and in twenty-five years would exceed
one-fourth of the entire national debt.
The true economy, of the policy of
prompt payment adopted by President
Grant and his excellent minister of
finance is thus made manifest. Already
it has produced an annual saving, as
we have seen, of more than twenty-two
million dollars, a monthly saving of
$1,833,543 25, and a daily saving of
$611,181 08. Other plans of relieving
the -people from taxes, which have,
from time to time, been put forward,
have been mere temporary expedients,
whose sole effect would have been to
prolong the period, and greatly' aug
ment the aggregate amount ot taxa
tion; but this plan brings permanent
relief, andTis accompanied by no haunt
ing thought of evil days to come.
Moreover the process of a reduction
is still rapidly going on', and every year
the diminution of the amount required
for interest, renders it possible to apply
so much the more to the payment of
the debt. Even the twenty-two mill
ions a year already saved, if dep6sited
annually as a sinking fund, at five per
cent interest, compounded semi-annually,
would alone suffice to pay ofT the
entire National debt in thirty-six and
one-quarter years, and compounded at
six per cent, would pay it in thirty
three years. Well might jPrcsidenl
Grant cherish the sanguine jhope, ex
pressed fn his letter of acceptance, of
leaving to his successor,, whether at the
end of this term or another, a country
ter, which found the charges true, but
they refused to remove him. The thou
