The political field has teen in a
rather feverish state of excitemei.t
during the week; the charges of
malfeasance against Major Smiih
has excised much corameut. The
Major in his answer to the same
claims that it was a mere derelic
tion of dutv, lhat it was no in ten
tion on his part to appropriate
moneys paid for licenses to Irs
use, in furtherai.ee of this fact, he
to day placed to the credit of tiie
city treasurer, the sum of 9808.

McClure the editor of the Times is
endeavoring to compel the Mj.j r

impeach him. The end is m t yer.
The democratic nominee tot
governor is the best of his kind,
but will fail in receiving the pop

A strong effort is to he made to
elect S. B. Gibson for the 7ih lesr

promises success, but unfortunate

of W. S. Darr, a justice of the
peace of the city, and also for the

September 9th the Odd Fellows
will give one to some place which

The meeting of the Odd Fellows
in this city in their triennial cele

preparations are being made to re

Academy of music, the largest
place of amusement, is engaged for

THE LAW OF LIBEL.
The states of the Union in re
spect to criminal and other laws
and their enforcement are foreign
to each other, yet the editor of the
Springfield Republican was ar
rested and temporarily imprisoned
in S"ew York for libi ling a residei t
of that city. iii his paper ; the editor
if the New York Sun was arrested
on this city on a charge of criminal
libel in the Sun brought by a
Philadelphian, aud more recently
theeditor of the Philadelphia Times
was arrested in .New Orleans on
account of an aiticle published in
in this city aud deemed libelous by
a citizen of Louisiana.
We have never heard that the ques
tion of jurisdiction was raised in
in any of these cases. It was as
sumed that the chief editor of a
paper "causes it to be circulated"
wherever it goes and is responsible
for its contents into whatever jurib
diction it comes. It ceitainly is
not necessary that he should carry
the papers across the line himself
in order to fix his responsibility.
Were it not that we have the au
thority of "Citizen" against us, we
would have reasoned from these
and other cases that Cutting com
mitted an offense against a citizen
of Mexico within the territory of
Mexico when the libel got across
the Rio Grande through his iustru- (
mentality. Philadelphia Press.
