THE PRESS. WEDNESDAY MORNINU, MAE. 26, '73 Ev&by reiular attaclie of the Press is furnished wilb a card certificate countersignod by Stanley T. Pullen, Editor. All railway, steamboat and bote managers will confer a favor upon us by demanding credentials of every person claiming to represent our journal, as we have information that several ''bum mers" are seeking courtesies in the name of the Pusse, and we have no disposition to be, even pas s vely, a party to such fraud. We do not read anonymous letters and communi cations. The name and address of the writer are iu all cases indispo ab e, not necessarily for publication but as a guarauty of good faith. W j cannot undertake to return or pre erve com munication» that are not use i. The Ba'ance of Trade. The New York Herald of Monday says there were never so large importations at that port as there have been during the part of March that has already expired. During that period the overage daily receipts at the New York Custom House hive been over half a million, notwithstanding the fact that there has been an average reduction of the tariff ten per cent since March 1872. Estimating that the revenue of the New York (Justom ΤΤηι,οο nrîii ).o els ηπη non in March, the Herald jumps at tho conclusion that then will be a very large surplus revenue at t ίο ou of the year. Τ iat journal also sees m t esc enormous imnortations an evi nice ο great wealth and unexampled proepenty the country as well as the extravagance ol our Tv'iewof the past, it must be confessed that a prosperity indicated by an excess of exports over the importe ot the country, would be far more satisfactory proof of the positive and increasing wealth of the country than the glaring fact that we are consuming more of the products of our neighbors than tbey take of our own, and that the deficit must come from what should properly be eon fideredthe reserved wealth of the nation. In deed, the fact that ihe balance of trade against us the past fiscal year was in the neighbor hood of a hundred million dollars, and that it promises to be as large the present, is one that should cause serious apprehension if not positive alarm. It is doubtless true, that the balance against ui is partly met by the largely increased num ber and iruptoved character of the immi grants to tkis country, who bring a large sum of money in the aggregate which is expended iu making homes and developing the re sources of the country, and which may prop erly be considered as so much money perma nently transferred to our side of the balance sheet. In this connection, too, it should be remembered that the amount of foreign cap ital invested in this country in railroad, mu nicipal, mining and other securities is very great and is constantly increasing, and it is a matter of question whether the amount ol interest paid on such investments does not fully cancel the amounts realized by the ec tsrprises in which such capital is employed. Histciy repeats itself simply because the relations between cause and effect produce like results when similarly connected. The financial panics of 1837 and 1857 were not because such a general revulsion must come in every period of twenty years, but because ν ne j ncic picccucu uy muac pcnuua ui prua perity shown by excessive balances of trade against this country and similar extravagance arising from speculation. This balance had bien accumulating for some time and at those periods our foreign neighbors called us to set tle, and settle we did with such results as will always be remembered. It must be admitted, however, that there is a vast difference in the piesent condition of the country as compared with the dates named. Then our manufacturing industries were in their infancy and were languishing under the baneful influences of hostile legis lation. Now they are multiplied more than tenfold over the latter date and have been ex tended to hundreds of important branches not then thought of. It is true that this country is in a position to declare itself more nearly independent of others so far as its pro ductions are concerned, than at any other pe riod of its existence, should any combination of adverse circumstances demand it. In view of this, it is fair to presume that a large part of the balance of trade against us might be avoided at the sacrifice of our love for foreign luxuries and finery, and by cultivating a thor oughly American spirit. The country has become disgusted with the theories advanced by psuedo statesmen for the resumption of specie payments ; and it is certainly providential that every one who lias a plan of his own has insisted upon it as bei"g the only possible solu'ion of the difficulty and arranged him against ail others and thus saved the nation from the calamity that would have come from the adoption of any one of them. By what means and at what time, the country can ac complish this end, it is impossible to tell, but no sane man can expect it so long as the bal ance of trade against us is one hundred mil lion dcllars a year. We give in an other column a report from the JVee Press, of a meeting held at Burling ton, in the interest of the Burlington branch of the Portland it Ogdensburg Railroad line. The indications are favorable for the prompt construction of this important division of the road. Once built, our merchants will have an opportunity to sell goods in Burlington, a large market formerly ou;-s, but lost to us by Boston ar d New York railroads. The branch, moreover, will bring a considerable part of the 12,000,000 feet of lumber shipped from Burlington, upon the. Portland & Ogdensburg lines, for distribution throughout New Eng land and to the seaboard. The Vermont division of the Portland & Ogdeneburg line is making an honorable rec ord of progress for itself. Sixty miles are in operation. Four miles additional are ironed. Four very important charters were secur el from the Legislature at its lite session, in furtherance of the interests of the line. The extension to Burlington was one of the» ·. Another takes the road across the outlet of Lake Champlain to a junction with the west ern division of the through line. Another se cures an optional route to Montreal tia the Southeast Counties Railroad. Not a single connection bas been missed by the train» this winter, and that too although eighteen inches of snow fell In one storm, upon a great depth — ! Λ —A- J.! ! t j ^V.V,W ing on eastward toward the Connecticut river. Westward the road, it is expected, will be pushed through to Lake Cha nplain this sea eon. The eastern division is fortunate in having a co-worker that carries on its part of the undertaking with so much vigor. A Washington paper says that Governor Hendricks of Indiana, has been in that city jo consultation with certain leading Democrats and Liberal Republicans relative to the fu ture of the somewhat detn iralizcd opposition party. There is the same talk about defeat. »ng the Republicans "horse, foot and drag oon," whatever that may mean, that we have heard Cot years. The matter of dropping the old party name has been canvassed and the Democratic Governor, one of the few that won under that banner, is said to fiyor it. The leaders in consultation have thus far tailed to agree upon any plan, but it is possi ble 'hat 'hey will issue an address to the coun try, calling a convention at which the propos ed organization is to be effected permanent ly. The name ot the new party has not been fully decided on, but it will embody such a declaration of reform as to make it attractive to new converts and retain the Democratic party unbroken. We have but one remark to make upon the foregoing, and that by way of reproof : This kind of bu'lesque isn't quite dignified in 1873 whea performed by the same parties tba were so painfully in earnest in 1872. The United States Senate has set about a thorough house cleaning. It has now taken up the case of Mr. Powell Clayton of Arkan sas. It is very possible that it may not f< rce his resignation and quite ()ossiblethatit ought not to do so. That dignified body in its movements after its sinners by no means re minds one of flying artillery but in the end it reaches them. It is, however, lamentable to to reflect what a lot of very respectable crock ery that body l:as smashed the past few weeks. After Clayton, let us hope that the Senate will reach Mr. Bogy pronounced "Boges." The Northern Vermont and Lake Cham plain Railroad. Agreeably to invitation, a number of promi nent citizens of Burlington met the Directors of the Northern Vermont & Luke Champlain Kailroad at the Van Ness House on Wednesday afternoon. Judge Carolus Noycs said that since the election of the present directors a new charter had been secured. The old charter was for a road from Cambridge to Essex Junction, the new for a road from Cambridge to Burling ton. It was to be determined under which of these acts they should proceed. The directors had reached a clear conclusion on the subject, which Mr. Fairbanks would state. He (Judge Noyes) thought it was greatly for the interest of Burlington to secure promptly the proposed connection by rail with the Lamoille Valley, than which there was no more thrifty region in Vermont. Hon. Horace Fairbanks explained the state of progress of the Portland & Ogdensburg road, which has now nearly reached the Notch of the White Mountains from Portland, and is under contract to the Connecticut river. On this side of the Connecticut sixty miles are now running, and it is to be completed to Swan ton during this year. That road desired this proposed connection with Lake Champlain it H,„ niiestion u"ia I liuk should terminate at Essex Junction or Buriington. The directors were unanimously ! of opinion that it should reach Burlington by an independent liue of its own. Mr. Fairbanks proceeded to show the advan tages of the route at length, and especially its attraction for summer travel, referring partic ularly to the Canghnawaja canal, and the im portance of this road in connection with that enterprise. This road would enable the Cana dian lumber coming upon Lake Champlain by the canal, as also by the existing water route, to reach tide water, at Portland, more cheaply than at any other point, or by any other route. Mr. Brigham of Hydepark, said the Lamoille Valley road aud the Portland and Ogdensburg line bad always considered this connection with Burlington, as one of the timportant branches of their enterprise. The survey made in 1871, showed that the road from Cambridge to Essex Junction could be built and fenced for S20.000 a mile. It would now cost something more, because iron is higher, and if an inde pendent lino is to be built to Burlington, then the cost of that is to be added. The people of the Lamoille Valley could not build this road. They had taxed themselves very heavily to se cure their own road, but they were satisfied that they saved money in so doing. One town, Concord, was bonded for twenty times its grand list. St. Johnsbury and the other towns were bonded for twelve timrs their list, and they had had to secure heavy individual sub scriptions besides. If Burlicgton would bond in aid of this road for five or six times the amount of its list, he would guarantee that par ties would be fouud to build the road into this city, without dependence on any other road for connections. Mial Davis of Burlington, being called on, said we must have an independent line into this city. He had found no citizen of Burling ton unwilliug to take bold of this, as a city. It would cost us more money nit to do it, than to do it, aud if the gentlemen here today will stand by he enterprise in city meeting the thing can be done. It would give us a new and valuable avenue to tide water; by means of which he hoped to see the export trade in lum ber to foreign countries, which has left us for the St. Lawrence, restored. These aud other advantages would be greatly enhanced when the Caughnawaga canal is built. Lieutenant-Gov. Taft said there could be no question of the advantages to this city of a connection with the Lamoille Valley and with ihe seaboard by a line of only 215 miles. It was as proper to bond for a railroad, as to tax fora highway, and there could be 110 doubt as to the desire or action of this city. Various gentlemen were called on in turn, all expressing themselves in favor of bonding the city in aid of the project, provided an inde pendent line conld be secured to th's city. The opinion was unanimous that we should never consent to subject any new avenue into Bur lington to the annoyances of an Essex Junc tion connection, or to place the connection at the mercy of any other railroad. On motiou of Capt. Start, it was voted that a committee of three be appointed to procure a reconnoissance of the route from Burlington to a connectiou with the line already surveyed, the meeting then ad'ourued, to meet at the cali of the Mayor, at some eariy day, in the City Hall. Charges Against Senator Clayton.—A ! Washington despatch says that the Senate is not disposed to give the case a full investiga tion. It says : One of the charges against Mr. Clayton is that at his first election as Senator he secured the votes of Democrats in the Legislature hy agreeing to give a certificate of election to Congress to Edwards, Democrat, though Boles, Republican, was clearly elected. This question came up last session in }he House Committee on Elections, and that committee made a rec ord of the fact, though as it involved members of the other House they did not report it, that Mr. Clayton had given a certificate to Edwards in the face of all law, and when the fact of Boles' legal election could not be question e I. Both the majority and minority of the Senate committee, however, hold that as he did not conclude to take his seat in the Sen ate at that election, the matter could not be ex amined now. Other charges against him which the Sunate is to pass on are that, being under a pledge publicly and privately made to his po litical friends that if elected to the United States Senate he would not leave the Gover norship in the hands of Lieut.-Governor Jolin so", a conservative, he instituted through his friend3 and supporters by quo warranto to de pose Johnson frcm office in order to clear bis way to the Senate; that being elected Senator while the quo warranto was pending, when that was decided in favor of Johnson he resigned the Senatorship and afterwards* secured his re election byiuducing R. J. T. White, Secretary of State, in consideration of a large sum of money to resign, and inducing Johnson to take White's place; that he procured the votes of many members of the legislature in support of himself for the Senate by paying mouey, by appointing themselves and friends to lucrative offices, and by gr?nting to them and their friends State aid to railroads, in which they and their friends were interested. Two members nf the committee report the charges not sustaiued. Mr. Norwood cohtends that they are abundantly proved. The majority of the committee find and report that White did receive through Mr. Clayton $5000 in money and $25,000 in railroad bonds, and that the pay ment was to indemnify him for loss on account of his resignation, but the majority do not think the evidence direct enough that this was, in fact a corrupt agreement touching the senàt jr ial election. The testimony contains a list of twenty-five members of tbe legislature, acd nearly half the number voting for nim were im mediately appointed to lucrative State offices by an understanding between Mr. Clayton and a friend of his who succeeded him as governor. Another past of the testimony involves the new Senator from Arkansas by a statement that Mr. Dorsey, while Mr. Clayton was governor, paid $35,000 to Bennett, one of the Supreme Court judges of Arkansas, · for his influence with Mr. Clayton for certain railroad bills Confederation in Prince Edward Is land.—The question of union with the Domin ion is likely to make the coming canvass in Prince Edward Island very lively. Why any of the islanders should desire to hold on a sep arate organization seems strange, the offers of the Dominion government being seemingly to pay all the bills and let the island have its share of benefits. Briefly stated, the terms are as follows: "The Dominion takes the Prince Edward Island Railway and assumes tbe debt of the colony to the extent of $3,250,000; the island receives an anaual allowance of $30,000 for the expenses of the local government and Legisla ture, and 80 cents per head on the population until it reaches 400,000; the Dominion govern ment assumes and defrays all charges for salary of Lieutenant Governor, salaries of judees, eus■ toma.

The Advertiser of last evening has the fol lowing: "Ever since the landing of the Mayflower, Thursday has been always selected for observance of those time-honored Yankee insti tutions, Thanksgiving and Fast Day. To break over this precedent will appear like sacrilege to the lover of our New England custjms. Vet the chief executives of Vermont and Con necticut have been guilty of this offence, and worse still, have designated Friday,the unlucky day of the calendar, for the annual fast.— Whither are we we drifting?" Will the editor inform us how long it is since Connecticut or Vermont had its annual fast on any day of the week but Friday? Certainly Connecticut has not within the last half cen tury, and we are quite sura it is so in in Ver mont. "Whither are we drifting!" "Shobt Counts."—The manufacturers of thin manila paper held a convention a few days since at Brattleborough, Mass., at which most of the mills in that line were fully repre sented.

Of The New Hampshire Democrats, all of whom voted against the increase, none drew the extra pay until the election was over, when Judge Hibbard, defeated, and Mr. Parker, η-elected, drew at once. Mr. Bell, whose election has un til within a day or two been in doubt, has not applied for his money, nor have any Connecti cut members. News and Other Items.
