ThiH i duo to tho ponition in which bis I ü i ! y have placed him. But when we annonnce that tho Hearcii was eo abaolntoly fruitless aa to mako lis fooi ridiculous, all can see that it is a ropi íiuí'h and a tí hamo to iiumlt tbe otlico of OhieJ Magia trate with auch a aamo as Hay es. Iteadthisye wlio are ïiot awake to the game played on you by tho abler men of the party in putting forward whero a Htatenman ouglit to bo a mero figure-hea:l ; a perno n who, wbile in Congres, wafl incoiiwidorablé almoat beyond any man that ever sat in the hall.

March 2, Moved to add $2,100 to pay editor of the Madison papers. Maroh 12t ISlado & pcrflooal explanation of his action in comniittc-o about a private claim. Thift iö the record of a boy among men. No clcvcr lad of 15 in the Union could Imve done lem in Congresa. He was Dover on tho iloor once but pro forma, and then he made a personal explauation about a rclatively petty matter. Kieiuscbmidt - that is to say a very little member of the Smith famUy - iü a Germán name, and we suppose Hayea1 claim to tlie Germán vote of tho country in "to be conciliated by liin public conrao in Congreas toward that cla8H of citizfins, a followa: He preaented Mr. Kleiuöchmidt'a potition for a remiHsion of taxea in the f ollowing aum, to wit : $12{56. We do not know whether Mr. KleinBohixidt was a constituent. We wíll presume he was not, that Mr. Hayes may appear aa the father of ono ineasure ia Congrees. We do not know tho fato of it. Wo fear it failod. But clearly on this despicable record wo can afford to bo generons. We pronounce, therefore, that Mr. Hayea auceesafully carried thia great meaeure, and got Mr. Kloinechmidt his $12.50, ftnd, to close all qnestion about it, we will asaume it by paying the amount ounueivea if the treasury refiaaed. Wo now see why Mr. Scbura supporto Hayeft. Alas, wa humbug ever plaiucr than tho machinatora at Cinciunati havo exempliñod it !
