A member elect of the Legislative Assembly has handed us a " ] sent to him through the mails by the North ern Pacific Railroad Company, and asks our opinion of the condition, upon which it is issued. It is a " season" ticket, bears the name of the rot ij i- nt. end eutitles him to passngr in trains on the Pacific Division until Dec. ."Ist, 1873. On the ol >verse .side are the fol lowing " conditions'*: This ticket is nut Iran* ft mi le, an 1 - for feited If presented l>y any »th"rthr.:i !! • |» r «>n named uim*i its face : and (lit- ( ic.| any reserves the right to revoke it at any time, without notice. The person accepting and nsinp thisli. U. t In consideration of reec i\ inn I!i. -voile \ol-j nntarilv assumes all risk oi' aeci.ieiits and ilmnaLi's. and expressly airrees that tl •• Northern Pacific 1 tail mini Company shall not l>e retarded as a common carrier, nor as liable to him for any injury to his person or •ny loss or damage to his li-ujiaire. which Ruiy occur while usinjr this ticket, whether i caused hy the neiilijrenco of the Company's apenta or'otherwise.' Before expressing fin opinion as to | the justice of these "conditions," we! should like to be informed whether or not its holder has paid the company an equivalent for the use he may make of it. As it ».i superscribed "on ac count of Territorial Legislature," we infer that the Government, in a generous mood, hud purchased passes for the mcmlieis of the Assembly, and had ordered them issued the same as jack-knives and mucillago have hereto fore been distributed; but as" civil ser vice reform" has already reduced the length of thesession one third, limited the appropriation for printing, lopjn .1 off all unnecessary expenses, and still provides for the payment of mileage to members to and from the Capital, that view, it will be observed, is scarcely admissable. If the Government has not opened an account with the North ern Pacific Railroad, either directly or through its authorized agents, the ques tion arises who has done so, and what is the object of such unparalleled gen erosity? Has some candidate foi Door keeper of the Council or House of Rep resentatives, or Scrgeant-at-Arms of these august bodies, hit upon this novel mode of advancing his cause, and mak ing a sure thing of the honors of the position, even though it be at a fright ful cost when reckoned in dollars and cents? Or has some benefactor of these much-abused gentlemen who make our laws, through the promptings of phil anthrophy, entered the field in their behalf, with the design of supplement ing it with tickets for meals at our hotels and drinks at the bars, to allevi ate in some degree the abuse they are mire to receive if they act and vote ac cording to the dictates of conscience under their official oaths? Either of these fatter suggestions may be correct, but if so, wo protest against the injus tice of the so-called " conditions," which defeat in some degree the object of the generous donor, by making the recipi ents of his bounty assume all the ordi nary risks of accident, and damage, even though resulting through neg lect of tho company. Furthermore, it was an oversight in him to allow the company to interpolate a clause by which they can revoke at any time with or without cause or notice, the benefits ■which his bounty has provided. Why is it that a member of the Assembly cannot have the same jjroteetion guaran teed to other passengers ? "Why is he compelled to tie his carpet-bag to his suspender button or pad his body, to guard against loss of linen by negli gence of agents, or injury to limb by the carelessness of some engineer or employee of the company? We pro test, in the name of humanity, against this injustice to our dignified Solons. Sheep, cattle and even hogs, are guar anteed safe transit under the laws reg ulating "common earners," and their liablitv extends to adequate damages for such loss as may be sustained by their owners. Probably the most serious cause for complaint, however, is found in the clause which renders the ticket subject to forfeiture if presented by any other than the person to whom it is issued. It is a lamentable blunder. Government provides mileage for alHhe members of the Assembly, and a pass is therefore of no more use than a fifth wheel to a wagon or an extra tail to a cat, and their use would be considered ridicu lous by all who have a proper regard for fitness and propriety. Had this " condition'' been omitted probably our legislators could find sale for their " passes," and return home a few dol lars richer than they came. As the matter rests, we assure our friend that his pc.rquyttie is scarcely in keeping even with the supplies usually doled out to the people's representatives, and WB cordially commend his determina tion to return it with thanks as a use less adjunct of legislative dignity and honor. • Cm; hk in, •• I-'aiiui il." \Yc leal 11 from the that ( ij'l.

Port I'own.scnd was the field of his choice, and saloon eounters the rostrum from which he hurled his boomerang. Poor Torn! never did man labor under more adverse or impositions circum stances. The letters he had written, , lauding the honestyand ability of Judge MePadden, in which he had declared for the Judge—first, last and always— were produced in the midst of a polit ical tirade in Hunt's Saloon, and drove him on the lee shore. Putting his whc tl hard to port, he then and there, in the presence of many auditors, ad mitted that he knew Mr. Oarfieldc to , be false to his friends, to the people and i the country, but that as ho was certain I to be elected he would vote for him. j Such devotion needed some fit reward ; and we are glad that lie has now reached the zenith of his glory, the acme of his soul's fondest aspirations.

At the conclusion of the game the result was read by the scorers viz: Alkis, K. Wasliingtons jo I Three hearty cheers were then given by the Alkis for the victorious club, and three for the umpire. The Philadelphia A'jc thinks that (he appointment of such n man as Credit Mobilior, salary-grab Bingham to he a representative of the United States abroad, is a premonition of the sort of man we may expect for the of fice of (Hi ief Justice of the United States, which appointment is delayed till Con gress meets, when it will probably be mado and rushed through the Senate immediately; and that Attorney General Williams (of evil notoriety in connection with Repeat or Brown's pardon) is from his unfitness for the place, the most likely to get it.

OUR WASHINGTON LETTER. n, D. Jim l:h. 1573. THJ: THllili TERM Ml \ AT WollK. The organization which was formed some three years ago in Washington, for the purpose of securing (brunt's re noiuination fjr a secon! term, has already ha 1 one or two informal meet ings for the purpose of determining upon a comprehensive plan for gradu ally familian::ing the masses of the Republican party with the following ideas: l irst, that there is nothing dreadful, /irr .«■, in a president serving three terms; next, that if the country has a good president, it would be fool ish to set him aside for no better reason than that somebody else wanted the position; and lastly, as the tiine for the nominating convention approaches, that domestic tranquility at the South and the integrity of the Union can bo as sured only by containing Grant in the presidential chair for a third term. THE PRESS IS TO I;E L-SF.D extensively for the dissemination of these ideas; an 1 it has been determined that,after a while, only avowed third term men shall be appointed to vacan cies in the civil service, and that the teriuro of office of every man, from tlie cabinet-officer to the night watchman of a custom-house, shall depond upon his open expressed views favoring a third term. Preparations are being mado for as desperate a struggle for po litical and financial power as an> that history has recorded. Not only the Ad ministration office-holders, but the car pet bag governments of the Southern States, the National Bank men, the bond holders, the railroad land-grabbers, the salary grabbers, the credit mobilier swindlers, the wealthy manufacturers, the men with fraudulent claims who di vide with the officials that put their jobs through—all these men have too good a thing to give up without a feaiful and expensive contest. PROPOSED INCREASE OF TIIE CIVIL SERVICE ARMY. The seed sown by the Bureau of In ternal Revenue in the several States produced such rich crops of Adminis tration votes last autumn, that the third term men have doteimined to create, if possible, a few more bureaus and to reconstruct others, so as to necessitate a vast addition to the already largo army of federal office-holders. With that end in view, every preparation is being made that the human ingenuity can devise to place before the 4:sd Congress and the people, in a favorable light, a bill to authorize the GOVERNMENT TO I't'ItCIIASE THE TELEGRAM! LINES —all the lines in the country—to place them under the control of the Post master General, and to prohibit the future construction of private lines, even by State authority in short, to place telegraphic communication on the same footing, in every respect, as the present postal service. The agents, superintendents, operators and other employees in government telegraph of fices, all over the Union, would bo quite serviceable during a presidential cam paign. Another measure of the third term men will be the creation of A BUREAU OF ITDI.IC JIUALTH, which shall see that the post-oftlcos, custon-houses, court-rooms and other buildings belonging to the govermont aro constructed on hygienic principles, and that the employees are all vacci nated and keep their bowels open. In a similar bill that was introduced to the Senate, last winter, as a feeler, several other duties were assigned to this bu reau; but I have not the bill at hand, and forget whjit they were. I <h> re member, though, that the way was left open for the future brigades of ollico holders in each State. It is also in the programme to en deavor to pass Hoar's " Bill for, the Es tablishment of a National System of Education" BO amended that it will give MORE TOWER ANT) RATRONAC.F. TO TOE BU- REAU OF EDUCATION in most of the Southern States. Hoar, who is an honest, straightforward man, and by far the ablest member of the Massachusetts delegation, tried hard to get his bill favorably considered by the 41st and 42d Congress, and will be in dignant at any attempt by professed political friends to mangle it for per sonal or party purposes; but if the third term men, most of whom have hitherto opposed or dodged it, find that they can trade it through, amended to suit them, they will care little for his wishes in regard to it. A NATIONAL QUARANTINE STSTEM. in another contemplated measure of the third term men for swelling the num ber of federal officials. At present, oach State enacts its own quarentine laws. It will bo readily perceived that the number of health officers and other employees necessary to enforce these laws, in tho several seaboard cities of the Union is, collectively, very large, and would add much to the numerical strength of tho administration that ap pointed them. I have endeavored to outline the pro gramme of the third term men, and to help to defeat it by making it known thus early. Tho obstacles they will have to encounter, and their chances of success, I shall reserve for another letter. LIKELY TO COME BACK. A friend who left Kansas five days ago, has just entered my office, and cor roberatcs the current rumor that Pome roy will most probably be the the Re publican candidate for the U. S. Senate. Apart from his Grant proclivities, which are strong, ho is by all odds the best man thus far spoken of in connection with tliojinuch coveted seat. Send him along. ' A. F. 13. jfcajjr T.. N.
