TH DKMTBVCTIOS OF THE PIRATK.
Lt Secretary Wkllm rejoice. Let the
ebole tMtj fling up lu cap and hurrah with
Willi A. glorious victory for our nns has
Seea won npon the e, and the value of It U
rrcatly anbanced ty the peculiar clroum
Jt&ocos under which It occurred. The pirate
fjRMKM and hlsTessol, the Alabama, hire
long been the scourge and terror of our com
merce. Like Lafittk, or the Bed Rover,
Caade famous by the splendid gunlus of
Ooofeb, the Southern buccaneer has, for a
Jong time, been scouring the ocean from the
SlexicM Gulf to the Chinese shores, and prey
ing, with merciless rapacity and malice, on
very eraft that bore our flag. Our merchants
Wore reasonably alarmed for the security of
tbeir ships and cargoes. Our marine Insurance
Companies were altogether warranted in put
ting up the rates of policies covering any pro
erty exposed on the high seas under the
Strs and Stripes." In that state of appre
hension It was not at all to be wondered that
Xrltlsh shipping began to monopolize the car
lying trade between this country and the
foreign world, and that the British ship
Owners were disposed to wink ct every mea
sure and contrivance, however unlawful, that
Would contribute to destroy our commerce.
Sad throw the whole business and profits of
marine transportation lnt!o their hands.
But toe defeat of Si mis In a square, open,
ad pitched fight, and, the sinking of his vessel
sjrltA the loss of a number of his crew and the
froundlng of other, including himself, will
probably open the-'eyos of the English and also
the French Admiralty to the danger of op
posing our nt'vy In direct warfare, or by any
mean and eowardlyfeoUuslon with the plratl
1 CaptaAn Kldds of the bogus Government
CaptWla WmsLOW, who commanded the
third-rate' screw steamer Keartage, Is reported
to have challenged Simmes to a naval duel,
andSuniM, with true Southern pluck, for
Which we give him all due credit, took up the
glove. He sailed or steamed out of the harbor
of Cherbourg, In which he had been permitted
. to repair his ship, and made right at the
Jyeartage, with an evident hope of using her
tip In a short and sharp engagement. But he
Jbund his match at last In the gallant con--,
mander and crew of that vessel, and after a fierce
encounter he got a broadside under his water,
line and went down lnglorlously.
We say lnglorlously, because the news we
'. get of the affair from Skmmks himself repre
sents . hint in the miserable character of a
plaintiff, who complains that the crew of the
Eeartage kept up the fight after the pirate
bad struck nor tlag. We do not know cer-
' talnly whether this complaint of Skmmbs Is
1 really well-founded, or only trumped up to
excite unjust feeling on the other side of the
irater against our navy. But be all that as It
! may, we should like to know what title a
pirate has to the comities of naval warfare ?
1 Is it possible that a lawless marauder on the
' ocean, who is assailing the commerce of any
one nation or of all nations, under the pre
tence of a legitimate belligerent right, is to
be suffered to enjoy the privileges of the decent
ad legal character he assumes t Privateering
is well understood by all naval powers
. Xt Is the right of preying on the commerce
of an enemy under the sanction of letters of
xnaiqueand reprisal, Issued by a recognized
government. But what nation la Christen
dom has recognized the Government of Jkf
. Veiwoh Davis? England and France have
retarded the Southern Rebels as belligerents,
wh'ch was a concession quite beyond the
limits of that law and policy which every
got ernment la interested to preserve as a pro
tection against the revolutionary attempts of
Its own disaffected subjects. But we very
much doubt whether the belligerent rights
conceded to a set of He be la on land will Jus
tify their extension on that maratimo domain
Which belongs to all de Jure governments
In common, and to them only.
A purely de facto government should have
So rights whatever beyond the land or water
that It actually occupies and controls; and
the idea of giving It legal and International
privileges on the high seas, where It cannot be
properly recognized until It Is formally ac
knowledged as a government dejure, seems
to us to be positively and plainly prepo
But waiving this question of moral right,
there Is one fact about which all loyal perilous
wU! agree and that Is, that Captain Winslow
lias behaved most gallantly In the affair with
Bemmxb, and has donu much to retrieve the
Botr ewhat discredited honor and prestige ol
our navy. Lie has won his title to the highest
tn(d which it is possible for the Government
to accord bim, and we most sincerely trmt
that the President will signalize his admirable
prowess and splendid achievement by bestow
ing on him at once the most distinguished re
ward which the law of our naval service will
admit, and which Secretary Welles has
already requested. Napoleon made his army
and secured bis great military successes Dy
exemplary promotion of the men who proved
themselves worthy of his confidence and favor,
His rule Is the sound one, and our Uovera-
suould adopt It both In our army and

ing when the boys and girls In our strents
Ifill the air with oaths, and when those whom
we employ teach children profane words It
Is time to turn attention to this subject with a
degree of earnestness which will show that
we are able to discern a pestllnnt vice which
surrounds and corrupts all, especially the
young. Though bad enough when only occa
sionally Indulged In, yet the hnblt of uln
language conceded on all hands to be unbe
coming in a Clirlstlan, or In any other man
claiming to be a gentleman, is far worno.
Swrarers are not often reached by the pulpit,
and If benefitted, must be brought under the
Influence of associates who abhor profiinity.
Little can ministers do or say that will bear
directly upon this sin ; but a word spoken In
season by laymen to those who are thought
lessly Irreverent, may bo the means of reclaim
ing ths most Inveterate blasphemer. The
worst form of Oils vice consists In impreca
tions or the habit of calling. down curses on
ourselves or others. And, however great the
heat of passion, however strong the provoca
tion, however bitter the taunts and reproaches
heaped npon us, whatever the wrong that has
been endured, there can be no excuse for the
commission of this crime. It appeus as though
more prayers to Oon were offered In our
streets by the hardened ar-4 the reckless, than
in the closets of Cbrkliann.
We can scarcely cross the thresholds of our
doors without having our ears shocked by
the petition of the profane, asking God to curse
them, or others, and to send their souls to per
ditlno. For every oath that falls from the lips
is a prayer to heaven, and whether sincere or
Insincere, whether uttered thoughtlessly or
coolly, in the hcai at passion or with delibera
tion, cannot prore harmless, or escape the ear
of Ilini whose name Is taken In vain. To say
that we do not mean what our Hps utter, Is Idle.
If a man would not consign himself or others
to hell, why pray lor this ? But God's law is
broken when His name Is used irreverently,
even In light and familiar discourse.
And there are thousands who would abhor
the thought of uttering an oath, who are
guilty of using words which are not In accord
ance with Scriptural morality. Tin name of
the Almighty should never be uttered care
lessly; He shculd never be frivolously In
voked to attest the truth of our declarations ;
we should notseok to point ajest.togive
emphasis to our language, or to startle those
with whom we converse, with an oath, for
God has forbidden It. And he who reflects
upon the greatness, the majesty, the goodness,
and the mercy of God that Ills glory fills all
space, and even the highest In heaven veil
their faces In His presence, cannot but con
template Him with awe, and recognize at once
tho terrible nature of blasphemy.
It Is well to desire that God's blessing shall
rest upon ourselves and upon our friends, and
well to resolve inwardly that we will endeavor
to do all things, relying upon God's help; but
It is an inexcusable habit to make God's name
a by-word, and to use It on all trifling occa
sions. The commonness of this sin does not
detract from its enormity; and because some
in blgb places of trust are base enough to in
terlard their familiar discourse with oaths, we
should not hesitate to discountenance and
rebuke the crime. As a good old bishop has
said "I beseech you, Christians, consider.
" that we are not to weigh sins by tho
" opinions of men, but by the censure and
" sentence of God; He hath no more allowed
" you to take His name in vain than He has
" to blaspheme It; the Irreverent using of it
" is as expressly forbidden as the abjuring
' and cursing of it; and when the law of God
" has not dispensed with us, it is most iutoler
" able presumption that we shoDld dare to
" dispense with ourselves."

To-night Is the closing sale of pictures, and

numerous company will be present. This la

all the best works are to be offered, including
these specially mentioned in the advertise

The bidding last evening was quite spirited;
and some of the lots brought good prices. A
small India ink drawing, by Dailey, was
knocked down at one hundred dollars. The
public will note that this afternoon and even

SHEET IRON SAFE.
The "Irrepressible Oonfliot" Still Progresaing
T thf Citizen of Philadelphia .
Arriiliiy to previous! notice, I shall now rartew the
prhcniilUi'i and other omide matter an contained in the
artlcla tictvied " I'tiUadi-Jphla Atfaiuat the World," aud
BlfiiM. by iAvidETaiin.
An the ihlflf, whan hard puihed, l tha flrat to cry
tbirt' mo la the man who haa vilified, ta4ticedt and
wrongfully a-n4tl Itii oeiglibor, ttie flrnt to cry vitlatn,
ajd to claim thp people's mpatliy.
Tha Ant promlnfnt point In thia article It tha writer's
rrr nuiiiett prateniiona.
la uBBHQiea to be flillaridphlA mtrely, and to itand
aKatnat tha orW ony aim-int-ly modtit,uraj. Tti
rmt (harinfr boon rap lied to by lVlunirs. Llllie A Hon
paa over by altnply aavlnff that tt la eaa y to ahow
thut Llllie A Kon are much tne largem patron m of thlaoj j
and fltat of any Kafe Manuiartnrer In the United Stati'S,
as ihty tiae ao much mora malarial thaa any other Uie
product of Uila State.
Tue xt point to be noticed Is the writer's call an his
ranariviphia frWuds to read an extract from Tiia KvuMina
Ttti-RHKAru of April 16, IH4, which show snaie of tha
tfliterent ways tl a common sain Is opened. Now, If Uie
reader will re tar to the article In Thk Bknino TaLRnRrir
of the 16Ut,he wHlflud It there atatedarttculariy Uiat
these was ware af common occurrence, and that they
erc known to burglar a; and I now nay the different ways
poihted out ware at the ttine well known to burglars , and
dad been previously publlohed to the world.
Hut It ae-nis to ault Uie writer's cine to leave oat thnaa
fact in hu reissue, lie adop t the principle thnt the piny
01 liamlvt must le wilttun, even thotiga It be ntn'otnary t i
U fiveoiit inamlct " jHifperate $ndi ret) u Ira dcniwrate
tneatiM, and It is evident the tluefs tutor does not Use to
atiittd alone 1 crtn, however, otfcr him this oonsoadon,
that notwithslnnd ng the di ptisltloa ho has iliiwn lo
every way to aid the (hiuf, he hat mt with but ul suocnsi.
1 do not b-'llcva he can Hud a burglar In the country that
would evin t liana him for alt his effort ; for avry pru
tensiuiial burglar knows that If he can Kit a heie Into a
Hate lock he U all rUfbt; and unleHs the writer can
1 ii mi the burglar how to drill chilled Iron, which 1 vary
lunch doubt, his occupation is none.
The next point which I notice In the very grave riaflttlna
rut i bv tlie wr ter, whether It ! not e tater to drill one small
lolethroufcD L II lie's Chilled Iron lMKr Uian twenty holes
through th commcn Hhaet Iron Ionrl
1 he reader will ask any dlkl uteres ted Iron-work rr
whether he can not drill even twenty umall holes through
cne-slxi eeiith to one-eight luch sheet Iron much easier fiaii
i flrill one hole tlnouwh oue and-u half to two Indies aolld
chll ed iron, and let him answer the question.
The m xt point which tha writer alleges as tha causa of
the cont'i'Vercy In
Thnt LUJie'i agtnt, among others, called at tha Con
aotlrattoit Hunk, on Mr. W. U. Hlumer, bnkar,
Allentown. and on the Treasurer of the West (')tiijr
ItHiiroad. Faying to the latter he could breitk Into his bank
ami tutelar proof stale In rive minu'a-i ; aud to the two for
mer, txai he could pick their locks, made by 12vans A
V imtm, lu live minutes.
Now, sm the tole reRnontble airent of this city
tor LUIIe's Hste, and 1 pronounce the above statements
almoluiety fale, so tar m It applies to my solf. as 1 am not
awaie Uiat I have had any rouver-tlon with either of the
twol alter part as on the sub t of sateii at all.
and I have never made any smh atatements, a

In Thk Tci.vuKAi'it of Apil lt. lNirl. ( which can be ea

aiiflain e ery iMsition there made to the a lis faction of
an titstnti n-tio iMrson.
Tims hnvc I reviewed the prominent points In this artf

ttiK fcl'ghtent Itturulaf Ion. The real cause will be totmd
In a hort rvy e ol the Sire lilitory In Philadelphia, it is
