D E M O C R A T IC R S P U B E I C A M STATE COITVENTIO^. The Democratic-Espublican electors, and all who are willing to unite with them in the coming Presidential campaign for the restoration of honest, economical and constitutional govern­ ment are reciuested to elect three delegates from each Assembly District to a Convention to be held in UTICA, ON WEDNESDAY. THE TWENTX-SIXXH DAT OP APRIL, at noon. for the purpose of electing delegates to the Na­ tional Democratic Convention, called for the 2?7th day of June, at St. Louis. By order of the State Committee. D. MAQONE, ,T r „ Chairman. iDOiE K. A poae , Secretary. The friends of “ honest, economical and constitutional government”— which includes all Democrats and m a n y In d e p e n d e n t R e p u b lica n s —will respond heartily to this call. They recognize the fact that the people mast look exclusively to the Democracy for the attainment of this purpose. Four years ago, Belknap’s rascali­ ties were fully exposed ; and prompt­ ly hushed up. Four years have fol­ lowed, full of revelations of similar and sickening transactions. The Re­ publican party has taken no steps to purify i'seif; and has not even pre­ tended t‘> -ulfill its pledges of reform. Ho one trusts it. Even in HewHamp- - shire it is repudiated on nainonal questions. The time and place for holding the State convention were determined upon with entire unanimity. There is no dissension in the Democratic ranks. Personal selections will be made in entire harmony, the - repre­ sentative men will be carefully and wisely chosen ; the voice of the people will be respected; the principles of Democracy will be enforced, and Hew York will cast her vote for a Demo­ cratic President.

THE BEARDSLEE GADETSHIF. An investigation of the case of the Beardslee Cadetship is being had be­ fore the Jndieary Committee of the House at Washington. Prof. Charlier, Principal of the so- called West Point Preparatory School in Hew York city, testifies that he re­ ceived three thousand dollars where­ with to purchase the Beardslee cadet­ ship, and paid it all over to a claim agent at Washington, who appears to have done a regular business in buy­ ing cadetships. The Professor thought there was no barm in such transac. tions. The most refreshingly inno­ cent part o f the story is the Professor’s expression of his belief that Congress­ man Hayes, who appointed the lad, did not get a cent o f the money. Claim Agent L i lly swears positive­ ly that he did not pay Alabama Hayes a cent for the Beardslee cadetship. Lil­ ly is perfectly willing to acknowledge, and does acknowledge, that he receiv­ ed three thousand dollars of young Beardslee’s mother, through Prof. Charlier, but that is as far as he can go.. Mrs. Beardslee, the mother of young Beardslee, appeared before the Com­ mittee and testified with the greatest freedom. Her son, she said, longed for a military life, and she determin­ ed to gratily his desire. She once ap­ plied to Judge Lord, Chairman of the Sub-Comraitiee, conducting the inves­ tigation, and-he informed her that her son must secure the place if possible by competitive examination. Mrs. Beardslee did not like this plan and looked about for some others. She saw by an advertisement in a newspa­ per that Lilly had a cadetship for dis­ posal, and opened a correspondence with him. Three thousand dollars w a s t h e price ch a r g e d , an d sh e agreed to give that amount, believing that Lilly acted as broker for some Mem­ ber of Congress who wanted to dis­ pose of the cadetship. By Lilly’s in­ struction her son was sent to Alaba- , and the boy wrote to hia mother that Congressman Hays was the per­ son who was to obtain his commission. This commission was delivered lo Mrs. Beardslee at the residence of Profess­ or Charlier in Hew York, who ppid Lilly, and to whom Mrs. Beardslee gave a draft for $3,000. The lady testified that she bought the cadet­ ship, and looked upon the whole mat­ ter purely as a business trausaetion, said she thought that the disposal of iadetsbips was one o f a Congressman’e perquisites, and it was nobody’s busi­ ness how much he charged or she paid for the same. Young Beardslee testified that after his appointment he was informed that it would be necessary to go to Alaba­ ma and spend a few weeks there. On h i s w a y S o u t h h e stop p e d a t W a s h ­ ington and called on the cadetship broker Lilly, who made an appoint­ ment to see him the next morning.— When he called on the succeeding day, he saw Representative Hays, and waa introduced to him as the young man whom he bad appointed. Mr. Hays simply remarked that ho hoped be would secure admission, as several others whom he had appointed had failed. Mr. Hays did not ask him any questions about hia absence from home, or question him on any other subject.. The young man also testifi­ ed that he had signed the letter ac­ c e p t in g th e ap p o in t m e n t, l a w h ich his residence is stated'to be in Choctaw county, Alabama, in blank, and that the statements contained in it on these points were inserted after- A n A gency fob the S ale of C adetship .—The examination before the House Judiciary Committee, of Elie Charlier, proprietor of a private school in Hew York, and through whom the payment was made to Con­ gressman Hays for the Beardslee cadetship appointment, has developed the fact that there exists in Washing­ ton, as has been suspected, an agency for the sale of cadetships. A Hew York lawyer named Lilly was the in-’ termediary in the Beardslee case, and it does not appear that any direct communication between Congressmen and their appointees ever took, place in such cases, or that it was even necessary for them to meet. Here it is according to the Hew York /Sun: “ Grantism is com- “ pounded of low greed, obtuse moral “ sentiment, shoddy display, the us© “ of public office for private gain, the “ rewarding of those who make you “ presents by places of honor or trust, “ the enriching o f all your relatives at “ the expense of the government, the “ ignoring of all the better publiq ** opinion, the conception that high “ office is a reward and not an obliga- “ tion imposed—in fine that the Gov- “ ernment is to he administered in the “ selfish interests of the governors and “ for th e ir aggran d izem e n t. I t is “ innovation which does not seem to “ provoke admiration at home ‘ abroad.” The people of these Uoit- ed States know only too well what this odious system is in effect, but the above graphic definition may prove of service to the lexicographer of the future, and we therefore place it on record. The Democratic Congressional Caucus has agreed upon a financial policy. It is time that the members of the House agreed upon some plan of action. The Democrats have agreed upon the Payne bill by a vote of 69 to 46. This bill provides for the gradual resumption of specie pay­ ments, by making it the duty of the Secretary of the Treasury annually to retain com to an amount equal to 8 per cent, o f the legal tender notes out­ standing, to constitute a resumption fund,- and also requiring national banks to set aside an amount of coin equal to three per cent of their circula­ tion of notes. The bill in addition proposes the repeal of so much of the specie resumption act of Jan. 14th, 1875, as designates the first of Janu­ ary, 1879, as the date of resumption, 1®* When James K . Polk was President an applicant for office sent him a present. Mr. Polk immediate­ ly returned it with a message that be had not ordered the article, and forth­ with erased the name of the sender from the list of applicants for office. They have been doing things differ­ ently at the White House daring the last 8 years. It is not surprising that *wltk the system established at the White House, Sec’y Belknap adopted the practice of dispensing favoirs those who paid the most for them.— He was but imitating his superior.

The failure is attributed to the fact that the bank has been loaning on warehouse re­ ceipts for several year^, which has re­ sulted in over drafts to the extent of some $800,000.

They also elected 9 out o f the 12 Sen­ ators, and have a majority of about 25 in the House. W e suppose that this indicates that the people of that 6tate endorse that stealing and bribery of Belknap and other Republican leaders. The Republicans worked w ith desperation, to carry th e S t a t e and have succeeded. Money was lav­ ishly expended. The proposition to abolish the county of Hamilton is assuming a practical shape. Qen.

The bill provides in full for the manner in which the county is to be dissolved and its records disposed of. !© • A bill for the admission of Hew Mexico, as a State, passed the United States Senate, notwithstanding the population is less than the constitu­ tion requires. Matters have come to a pretty pass, if a territory like Hew Mexico with less than 100,000 citi­ zens, a small proportion only of whom speak English, and the majority of whom are deplorably ignorant are to have the same representation in the Senate as Pennsylvania with her 4,- 000,000, and Hew York with her 4,- 500,000.
