FBI DAT, FEBRUARY 8, 1867.
The Increase of Crime Its Causes and
Jubge Ludlow, In hi address to the Grand
Jury last Monday, expressed the opinion that
most fearful, determined struggle between
right and wrong, virtue and Ylcc, law and
order, is now going on In this country ; and
onlesa the current of crime is Instantly
checked, It will soon, very soon, sweep away
from the land all we consider good. For the
first time la the history of the Eastern Peni
tentiary, every cell la crowded; and the sad
dest fact of all is that over two-thirds of the
Inmates are vnder tioenty-Jlve yeara of age!''
The mere fact that there are more convicts
in the Penitentiary than ever before does not
Of itself necessarily prove that there are more
than the ordinary proportion of criminals in j
the community . As the population of the
City Increases, the number ot criminals is
naturally larger, and the Penitentiary might
in time come to be filled iu that way alone.
Or A more strict and rigorous administration
of justice might result in the conviction of a
larger proportion of criminals than usual, and
bo apparently Increase their numbers. Un
fortunately, however, we can hardly solace
ourselves with any such explanations of the
present phenomenon. The alarming increase
of crime forces itself upon our view In too
many ways, and from too many quarters, to
allow of any doubt concerning its reality.
And as Judge Ludlow well remarks, the sad
dest fact connected with it is the increase of
Crime among the young. This is something
truly startling. It should arouse the earnest
attention of every good citizen.
Doubtless much of the increase of crime
is due to the demoralization incident to so
great a war as the one through which we have
just passed. It is a part ot the general cost
of the struggle forced upon us by those who
attempted to toverthaow the Government.
Such a result was to have been anticipated)
and is perhaps less than we had reason to
There, is something, too, in the present con
dition of the country which tends to produce
an increase 61 certain classes of crimes in
the Northern States. Since the close ot the
war we have received large accessions of
thieves, pickpockets, robbers, and gamblers
from the Soutn. ihey abound in au our
large cities. They find a more profitable
field of operations here than at home.
But there are other causes to which much
of this increase of crime, especially among
the young, is due. Judge Ludlow attributes
it in part "to a want of proper training of
our young men, and to the destruction of the
apprentice system." They are restrained
neither by parents nor masters. 'As soon as
their day's work is ovtr they are thrown en
masse upon society ; they resort to low dens
of gambling and prostitution, become the
companions of thieves and prostitutes, have
no sell-respect, and so hasten to their inevi
There is much of truth in these sugges
tions. The overthrow of the apprentice sys
tem has worked badly in morals as well as in
business. Under that system not only were
young men taught to be good mechanics and
citizens, but some care was taken of their
habits and morals. Now they grow up into
bait-taught workmen, mere bunglers in their
traOea, while Increasing numbers of them go
to swell the army of those who piey .upon
society by their vices, or becoma its open
enemies by their crimes. There is also a lack
of parental restraint which is disastrous in its
consequences. Mere boys, who ought to be
at home, are allowed to spend their evenings
in wandering about the streets, forming evil
associations and learning lessons of vice.
And then, also, there are thousands of
.children victims of poverty and want,
who reallv have no homes that. ArA WArf Tin rP
w v n vi uu j ji
the name. It is from this class that the great
army of criminals draws Its never-fitiling
In protecting itself against crime, society
must depend partly upon lotto and partly upon
moral influences. When crime has been com
mitted, 'the law should impose its penalty
promptly and certainly. The lax adminis
tration of the criminal law Ib one of the chief
. causes of the prevalence of crime. The laws
re good enough, their penalties severe
enough, out tneir execution is teeble and
uncertain. Criminals escape so constantly,
through the connivance or indolence of the
officers of the law, that the law loses all its
terrors. It may well be questioned, too,
whether the requirement of a unanimous ver
dict of a Jury to convict, is not far more of a
defense for criminals than it is a protection of
innocent persons. We believe that the best
interests of society would be greatly sub
served by such a change in our criminal law
as should allow two-thirds or three-fourths
- of ury to convict.
But our chief protection against crime

far more attention than it has yet received.
There stands the grim evil of poverty con
tributing its constant quota to the rauks of
vice and crime. How shall we reach that?
now save the thousands of Innocent chil
dren in our large cities, who seem doomed
to, Urea f Ytoleace aad shame ?
There stands the great evil of intempe
rance, with its seductions at every corner,
the great feeder of the almshouse and the
prison. IIow shall we reach that? How
shall we keep the young from a temptation
which so persistently assails them In every
possible shape and form?
There is that terrible social evil of prosti
tution, which ministers are afraid to preach
about, and which even the newspaper editor
hardly knows how to mention. What is to be
done with that? Everybody knows that it
is fearfully on the increase. It no longer
seeks concealment, but flaunts Itself before
the public eye . Its evil effects are striking
further and deeper every day into the very
vitals of society, and yet nothing is done to
check it. It U a vast nursery of violent and
deadly crimes, yet the law seems powerless
to repress it.
So long as society allows these powerful
and sleeplessly active influences of evil to riot
unchecked,we must look for crime to increase.
We may hang men for murder, but so long as
we tolerate those huge vices that madden
men's brains with poison and their hearts
with lust, and their wi ole beings with pas
sion, we must expect violence and murder to
increase. To secure a decrease of crime, we
must begin at the bottom, and work agains
these vicious and destructive influences of
which crime is only the natural and necessary
Protecting Iron-Clads from Destruction
All tbe world has heard that the New
Ironsides was destroyed by fire while lying
at League Island, with scarcely tbe shadow
of a guard, or watch; and all the world has
since been told by the Connecticut delega
tion that Li ague Island, on that account, is
a very dangerous locality aa a station for
iron-clad vessels-of-war. .
Now, be it known that New Orleans isulso
an iron-clad station in its way. But through
1 M t J 1 A 1
some strange oversigni oi ine gentleman
from the '"Wooden-nutmeg" State, the iron
clads at New Orleans are partially, if not
wholly, in commission. They are properly
guarded from all chance of Are or other mis
hap by the presence of a large and efficient
corps of naval officers and men. The conse
quence is that none of these iron-clads have
fallen a prey to the incendiary. On the con
trary, these ugly but expensive monsters
were, on the evening ol the 1st instant, the
scene ot a conflagration of quite a different
character. On that occasion the deck of one
of them was, to quote from the New Orleans
Time of a late date, 'canvassed over, and
profusely decorated with flags of all nations,
arms of every description, decorations with
out number, paintings, mirrors, orange trees,
and a multitude of quaint and curious things,
arranged in such a manner as to give the
beholder a surprise as well as a rare treat."
When all this had been arranged, the iron
clad saloon was lighted up by several hundred
wax candles, by the light of which a festive
throng of naval heroes and reconstructed
Southern dames tripped ' the light fantastic
toe" until the break of day. We would call
the attention of the naval committees of
Congress to this little episode, at the same
time propounding this query: Would the
New Ironsides be the wreck she now Is, if she
had been favored with such a cheerful and
efficient watch ?
The piecise stage which tbe question of
the Alabama claims has reached is indicated
in Lord Derby's reply to a question put by
Eail Kustell in the House of Lords last Tues
day evening. The British Government, it
appears, have at length agreed to submit the
matter to arbitration, ana await rrom tne
United States Government a plain statement
of the points on which ' adjustment on that
plan'is desired. This, we opine, there will be
no difficulty In supplying.
