Bpoaking of the reform charter for the

the citizens'. cpmmittee of eevsnty, and
more particularly of the plan of cumn
latire roting therein recommended and

a Yid claim that it is tho trae expounder
of Republican doctrine, und tho Times

foundation of the Republican party the
grand popdlar principio of equality of
rights to all men? Is that cry the mere
cant of bjypoajitical demagogues, to ex?
cite tho Enthusiasm of the ignorant
though well-meaning populace? or is it
the^tru?, sincere and noble sentiments
of a <gennine Republicanism? if the
latter, how in the name of consistency
and reason, can men who profess to ba
Republicans, and to1 cherish its purest
principles, deny to the white people of
Colombia inst such a fair share of repr??
sentation in their city government, as is
claimed to bo right and propbr in New
York by tho organ of Republicanism,
and acknowledged to be wise and in
accordance with true patriotism by good
men of all parties and nationalities.
The white people of Columbia form
nearly half the population; they pay
three-fourths, at least, of the taxes. Is
it Republicanism to deny them any voice
in the management of their own money,
or to deprive them of all participation in
a common government? It is not; and
the false-hearted villain that says it is,
or takes measure to prevent a moderate
and just representation of the white
people, is no Republican. He is nothing
more than a naked demagogue, and
meuna no good to society. Nor is be a
friend to the colored race. These hewly
enfranchised people cannot maintain
their own by ignoring and denying the
rights of their white fellow-oitisens,
and more especially when each denial
works the rain and corruption which is
manifested alike in our municipal and
Statu Government. If they were com?
petent to toke charge of all publio affairs
themselves, and fo give ns ?aven an
honest and economical management of
them, it wonld not still be fair nor wonld
it be expedient for them so to act. They
gained their own freedom from the sym?
pathy of civilized humanity which con?
ceived them to be oppressed. They will
not best manifest their fitness for free?
dom and political power and commend
the aotion of civilized humanity, by op?
pressing the white raae, or by allowing
- unscrupulous adventurers to rob, de?
grade and ruin, through their instrumen?
tality and power, the State over which
their numbers give them the oontrol.
i In our citizens' movement, the white
people have usked for no consideration
of their property, or of their snperioi
intelligence as a class, as entitling them
to greater representation; bat, by theil
nominations, show that they are oontent
to act upon an assumed footing of equal
ity on those two scores entirely, and asl
barely foe euoh representation as theil
mere numbers entitle them to. Thej
ask no more, because that is sufSoient t<
answer the ends of good government
which is all they seek. A spirit of job
bery and of corrupt extravagance cha
raoterizos the present Council. Higl
taxation and a startling inore aso of tb ?
publio debt has ensued. That is wha
we contend against. No man in hi
senses can entertain a hope that the pro

bat if he be a Republican, with all the

Honesty and economy in the manage?
ment of public affairs are the common
objecta alike of Democracy and of Re?
publicanism. They may pursue differ?
ent paths, and each believe the other o fl
the track, bat they are struggling for the
samegOaL In our city government thort
is bnt one path, and both mast follow it.
A vast preponderance of strength ic

begets corruption; and thon is the time
for honest elements to combine, l.n fis?

many ring, grew fearfully corrupt
Honest Democrats joined with the Re
publicans and defeated Tammany ant
saved the city. Such was likewise th<
oase in San Francisco, and the samo re
Balts followed, too, with the table
turned in Chicago. Where there is n<
evidenoe of corruption, citizens do oftei

In the April number of the Oulax

Tho New York Herald baa a two-oo
iumn editorial elaborating and illustrat?
ing "the mysterious i nil non no" of the
New York "fleraid. An influence that
requires so muoh explanation munt be
not only mysterious, but minute. The
truth is, the Herald has been gradually
withering out of the politics of the
country with the gradual decay of the
powerful old mah who' established it.
The shrewd common sense of the elder
BeuuuU no longer shows'itself in its co?
lumns, excopt by fits and starts; and
though Bennett the younger ia aaid to
bo a fellow of capacity and spirit, he is
too much engaged with the diversions of
a great fortune to "knuckle down" to
the drudging and discipline essential to
tue conduct of a newspaper. The He?
rald is, in reality, a headless monster,
kept going by a sort of retrogressive
force that has not yet died oat of it.
MR. EDITOR: Very seldom do I ever
appear in newspaper articles, and when?
ever I do, it is done with, delicacy; but
the existence of a public nuisance in
this city, compels me to ask a small
space in your columns for the purpose
of oalling the attention of tho city au?
thorities to that nuisance. While pass'
iug through Assembly street, on Thurs?
day afternoon, I was iusulted by the
lounging and idle colored boys who in?
fest that street, by being called a damned
Jew. I, of course, took no notice of it,
and proceeded on my businosB. On
yesterday morning, while passing
through the same street, I waa accosted
in the Bame manner by those boya, and
would not have taken notice of it had it
not been repeated two consecutive days.
I reprimanded the boy, who immedi?
ately drew from his pocket a knife with
a blade five or six inches long, with
whioh he attempted to out me. I did
not attempt to take.the knife from him,
for had I done so, I would have been
jumped on by the friends of these boys,
who were men, and who dared me to
toko the knife from the boy. What I
desire now lo soy, is, that auoh things
should not be tolerated in any commu?
nity; for if a'peaceable citizen cannot
walk the streets without being insulted
and accosted with a knife in the day,
what safety is there for a person in the
night? The idea of a boy twelve or
fifteen years of age carrying a deadly
weapon of that sort, is perfectly horri?
ble; and I hope the oity authorities will
instruct their police to attend to this
matter, and see that these boys are dis?
armed. Very respectfully,
SICKELS AND STOKES-A GOINOIDKSCB.
The ohauge in the Erie railway brings
vory conspicuously before the world two
homicides who are its real authors
Daniel E. Sickels and Edward S. Stokes.
But for tho killing of Fi^k by Stoke?,
tho agents of the foreigu stockholders
, eonld never have got into the Erie build?
ing-the Grand Opera House-for it
turns out now, and it is proved by re?
cent events, that Fisk was tho real vital
po cor of Erle. It will strike everybody,
on reflection, as a most extraordinary
coincidence, that tho other principal
actor? besides Stokes, namely, Dauicl E.
Sickels, is aUo a homicide. Stokes
killed Fisk, and ia yet to be tried for it;
Sickels killed Philip Barton Key, and
was tried for it and acquitted on the
ground of insanity! Another coinci?
dence is that both Fisk and Key wero
killed by beibg shot by Derriuger pis?
tols; and still another, that Stokes is de?
fended by tho same distinguished crimi?
nal lawyer who got Sickels clear.
Sickels is our Minister to Spuiu; and
for nu ordinary mau to bo at home lead?
ing a struggle to take a railway office in
a foreigu interest whilo drawing pay as
our representative at a foreign court,
would seem st runge; but nothing is
strange to Dan. Sickels.
The country is happy in tho expecta?
tion of a reform in Erie, and Stokes'
friends aro happy in thu hope that st no
distant day, whilo Minister to some
foreign country, ho may return home
and soizo somo great railway.

from the city, the farthest point from

house, by tho name of Wiggins, was in?
stantly killed. Pieces of a new wagon
that had stood in the yard were found at
a distan?a of a quarter of a mile from
the wreck, and one of the tires of the
wagon wus found completely wrapped
around a tree, ata diBtanco of an eighth
of a mile.
At Three Milo Branch, the next place
which fell before the wrath of the
cyclone, Jacob Barton's hou.se was en?
tirely capsized, sud nearly all the wreck
was curried by the wind to a distance of
100 feot. Teu jpersons were in the
