THU rMUSIJIAN SYSTEM OF POLICE
About two centuries ago, there was, not
far from Mount Etna, in Sicily, a beautiful
city, called Messina, which exists to this day,
and bears the same name. In common with
the contry around it, it bore traces of a long
series of conquests incident to the military
enterpr ses of the Carthaginians and the Ro
mans, :.nd to the warlike turbulence which
unsettled Europe for so many years after the
fall of the Roman Empire. It had been
"recorlstructed," in some sense, as often as it
had passed under a new dominion ; and the
more it underwent reconstruction the more
profound and inveterate became its domestic
trouLles, the more confused and vexatious
the laws prescribed for its government, and
the more loose, negligent, inefficient and
stupid their administration.
In the period referred to, William Shak
speare was writing plays for the English
stage; and among his plays was the comedy
of "Much Ado About Nothing," which had
for its place of action Meosins, and for one
of its principal personages the Duke of Mes
sina. The author had occasion, in one of the
scenes of this comedy, to sketch the system
cf police which had grown up in that often
recos atructed city. The fidelity and felicity
of th a description were at first a matter of
little tote either to critical judgment or to
popular estimation. For Shakspeare was re
garded in his own day simply as a clever,
facile and prolific dramatist. It was only by
degrees that his universality of genius, his
panachronism of sympathy and insight,
dawned upon the literary world until at
length this revelation shaped itself into the
expression, now as familiar as household
words, that he "wrote for all time." And
there ii nothing, we are satisfied, more cal
culated to impress the mind with this remark
able and god-like quality of his writings than
the subjoined dialogue from the scene to
which we have adverted as descriptive of the
constabulary peculiarities of a " reconstruct
ed " city about two centuries ago :
Enter Doussar and VaIREs "rilh t(e lIICft.
i)og:,. Are you good men and true ?
Very. Yes, or else it were pity but they should
suffer -alvation, body and soul.
,ogb. Nay, that were a punishment too good
for them, if they should have say ailegiance in
them. being chosen for the prince's watch.
Very. Well, give them their charge, neighbor
InTg' First, who thick you the moet denar:tles
sean to be constable ?
1 Watch. Hugh Oatcake, sir, or George Sean tl:
for they can write and read.
D1gb. Come hither, neighbor Beacoal: God hath
blersed you with a good nnam : to be a well Ia
vonred man is the gift of fortune; but to wrt aud
read coes by Msere.
2 WLtch. Both which. master constable,
L)ob. You have; I knew it woull be your an
swer. Well, for your favour, sir, why, give God
thanks, and make no boast of it; and for your
writing and reading, let that appear when there is
no need of such vanity. You are thought here to
be the most senseless and fit mau for the cons.a~it
of the watch ; therefore bear you the lantern. This
Ms your charge: yen shall comprehend ,!l vaer ,m
men; you are to bid any man stand, in the prince's
2 l;,tchr. How if he will not stand ?
lct'rb. Why, then, take no note of his, but let
him o : and presently call the rest of the wat-h
togebher, and thank God you are rid of the
T'erg. If he will not s'and when he is bidden,
he is eone of the prince's subjects.
Dogb. True, and they are to meddle with none
but the prince's subjects. Ynu shall also make
no nulse in the streets; for, for the watch to
babble and talk, is most tolerable and not to be
2 I oath. We will rather sleep than talk; we
hnow what belongs to a watch.
D)ogh. Why, you speak hlike an ancient and
most quiet watchman; fr I cannot s.o how
sleeping shboold offend; only have a care that
your bills be not stolen. Well, you are ti cell at
all the ale bouses, and bid those that are drunk
get them to bed.
2 Wachd. Bow If they will not
1,96. Why then, let thedm al ne till they are
sober; ift y rymake you nt then h better U
aver, you may say, they are not the trenr you
took them for.
2 hatch. Well, sir.
1ogt,. If you meet a thief, you may suoect
him, by virtue of your office, to be no true mn :
and, for such kind of wren, the less you meddle or
rakee with them, why, the more is for your
2 ,i'?i. If we know him to be a th'ef, shall we
not lay hands on him'
Ie(,. Troly, by your olice, you may; but I
think they that touch pitch will be defiled: th
most peaceable way for you. if you do take a
thief, is to let him show himself what he is, and to
steal out of your company.
Very. If you hear a child cry In the night, you
most call to the nurse, and bid her stil i:.
2 4'atrh. How if the ourse be asleep, and will
not hear us?
Do,),. Why, then, depart in peace, and let the
child wake her with cryingl: for the ewe that will
not hear her lamb when it bays, will never an
swer a calf when he bleats.
Vero. 'Tia very true.
o,,r.),. hbs is the end of the charge. You,
consltabie, are to present the prince's own per
son; if you meet the prince in the night you may
ler9. Nay, by'r lady. that, I think, he cannot.
1)ojb FIre shtllings to one on's, with any mmn
that kn ws the statues, he may stay him; marry,
not without the prince he wllitg, for. indeed tie
watt h ,;oght to offend no man, and it is an ofiense
to stay a man against hfs will.
i er0. By'r lady, I think it be so.
Do',, Ha. ha, ha! Well, masters, good nitht:
an' bthete be say matter of weight chaiCes call noup
me: koep your fellows' counesels and your own,
and ged nught. Come, neighbor.
2 It tch,. Well, mao'ers, we hear our charre;
let ous go tcit here upon the church-bench uil Lwo,
and th n all to bed.
Thel citizen of New Orleans who can not
see in the tenor of tbi" Me-sinian conference
an ane-tyle of the institution, called the
Metroiolitan Police, which reconstruction has
given !New Orleans, is wofully behind tha
time, most assuredly. If such a man there
be, he is incapable of thinkiung or writing for
this or for any other time, and should be, for his
own iake and for the benefit of socity,
" cut e-r the simples." The supreme thought
with tl.e Messinian constabulatory was how not
to do it with the utmost solemnity of indolent
and tonceited ignorance. They were well
content if they could fatten upon the unearned
provend of organized imbecility. It was the
roguesor the "vagrom" man's own fault if he
mansaed to be caught in their shallow and
rotten mashes The parting remark of the
second watkhman, "Well, masters, we hear
our chlarge; let us go sit here upon the ehurch
bench till two, and then all to bed." was a
fit conclusion to a conference in which it had
heei agreed that the duty of the police was to
let every rc'reant knave go, and only meddle
with the honest subjects of the prince. And
it would form an appropriate finale to the
deliberations of the metropolitan organization,
the bright ornaments of which walk, with such
unfailing rectitude as historic illustrators of
8hakspeare, in the footsteps of their famous
predecessors, Dogberry and Verges, Oatcake
and Seacoal. It may be even conceded, in
deed, that Oscar J. Dunn & Co. have added
some touches in line and color which really
heiphten the effect of the copy, in some
aspect.s, above the original. For example,
instead of being content to say, with Dogberry,
"to be a well favored man is a gift of
fortune; but to write and read comes by
nature," they go further and say,
in practice, if not " ;p.cS';mu.e l'erjes,"
" to be aman of black or, dunn complexion is
to be accounted merely an accidental ad
vantage of fortune; but to write and read, to
vote and hold office. and, generally, to make
laws for, and to rule over the common herd
who are less favored by fortune, are gifts of
nature." There is another point of excess in
which the metropolitan copy differs from the
Mesiinian original. The ambition of Dog
berry and Verges and their subordinates
went no further than to be, with all possible
safety and profit to themselves, consummate
do-nothings and know-nothings. It can
hardly be said that our metropolitans delib
erate and act under a supreme and unqualified
desire to solve the problem of how not to do
it. They are really set upon doing something,
But it is not the right thing; it is not a whole
some thing. It is a thing that stinks in the
nostrils of all right thinking men, of all who
cherish principles of true progress and civili
zation. It is athing that is scandalous to the
country and the century. Were they simply
nonentities in respect to the legitimate func
tions of a police, that were bad enough. But,
beyond this, they are assiduous, to the utmost,
in playing the part of minions of a polit
ical faction which is bent on making social
ruin the basis of a profligate and remorseless
despotisms There's your Messiniuan police
with its metropolitan variation-a variation
impiorting an atrocity so anomalous that even
the wonderfully comprehensive and far reach
ing genius of Shakespeare does not seem to
have divined it.
