THE DAILY" PRESET
HENRY ItBKlJ Ac CO.,
Homicide and the Reflections
'f ie lamentable amwinatioD of Mr. Craw
Jej, of Mount Auburn, and the ciroamstanoes
tinder which th crim wu committed, afford
ui the opportunity to present to the readers
of theataa a few reflections upon the ten
dency of certain features In the policy of our
municipal administration to increase the
number of similar events, through the indi
rect jnconra(remcnt which it gires to the
class by which, in general, they are perpe
trated. . la sb doing w have nodesire to call
in question the motives of any of our public
officers. Their offense If offense it is con
sists in permitting themselves to be led by
precedents and prejudices, rather than listen
to the dictates of reason and experience.
With the materials of the necessary wisdom
before them, upon which they have only to
look in order to learn all that is desir
able to know, they do, as thousands
have done, prefer theories to facts, and, as a
necessary consequence, beget abuses where
they vainly flatter themselves they are pro
moting reforms. Perhaps, in better times
that are coming, things will be different; at
least; it is consoling' to be permitted to bops
so without greatly offending anybody. There
is reason, from the knowa facts of the case to
believe that the person or persons "by whom
the deed wss committed mistook the estima
ble young ladies Who were in company with
the deceased, for people of a very different
character. Most unfortunately they were not
eaffieiently near to him, at the time when
they were accosted, to render it absolutely
certain thai they were directly under his pro
tection. A recent decree of the city govern
ment, intended, doubtless, only to reach a
certain class, in effect outlaws every woman
found In the streets after a certain hour in
the evening, renders her technically suspi
cious, and exposes her to actual insult frpm
every ruffian, brute or scoundrel whom she
happens to encounter. . .
We are not saying this in view of hypo
thetical cases, or of occurrences that may
possibly happen; but with aa eye to things
as they are. There are creatures bearing the
forms of men, who seed but the opportunity
and the permission to insult and abuse every
female within their reach. There is a base
spirit by which a lower order of men are In
fected, making them actually glory In being
abje to .heap unprovoked injury upon the
bead of an unprotected woman. Nor is the
number of such in this city small. It is large;
and under the present executive policy, the
sum of the wrong and crime, and cruelty
which they commit is terrible. . These men
stand on a high moral platform, beside the
Mayor. ' The outlawry which the latter has
pronounced, they, as vindicators of the public
virtue, feel commissioned to execute. Bold
enough at all times, they become especially
insolent at finding themselves in such excel
lent society, and carry on their depredations
with a confidence hitherto unknown. .1
The effect of this outlawry upon women
destitute of legal protectors, is to the last de
gree disheartening. Whatever they may suf
fer, they feel as if there is now no place to
which they can go for defense; and there are
hundreds of such in this city women whose
exterior conduct is, in every respect proper
and exemplary who, merely because they
are defenseless and will not permit them
selves to associate with the meanest of man
kind, are doily made to suffer insult and in
jury from those who, covered with the moral
eegit of the mayoral proclamation, actually
feel themselves empowered to do evil to the
full extent of their ability
There is aa old record of crime and cruelty
standing in the history of this city, growing
out ,ot : causes precisely similar to those
that are now at work, which tells of
a moral purgation, carried on at the
hands of a rabble, until humanity
wept and turned away its head at the awful
spectacles that were presented. Do we want,
either in whole or in part, a recurrence of
these days of terror and disgrace? If we do,
the true way to secure it is to outlaw a class
to put either in fact or in feeling beyond
the protection of the legal institutions of the
country and we (hall have bands of ruffians
in the' streets, midnight assassinations, mobs
of wretches bent on executing the moral law,
houses pulled down, women drawn through
the streets by the hair in short, all of those
phenomena that usually, in a greater or less
degree, belong among the consequences of
hasty, ill-considered and spasmodic reform,
The Catholic Telegraph takes exceptions
to a communication which was published in
this paper, an special providence, and on the
blasphemy of charging God with the con
sequences of oar own violations of the laws
of life." The subject originated in the com
ments made in the papers on the recent hurri
cane. . The communication took the ground
that these and all the events of life are
governed by great physical laws set in motion
by Qod; but- that be does not vary his laws
to suit special cases. The following extract
gives the TVeeropA's fisw., ;
"After all, what are physical causes but the
forces which God created, measured and set
tled in their places, to operate precisely what
and whan he fiinaw and wished 1 . What
phvsical effects bat those events ia nature
which Bod produces successively to further
His all-wise views? Believers in Providence
do not suppose that Qod rets up a hurricane
to blow Mr. Smith's hat off; but they do sup-,
pose that eucn contingency was foreseen
ane desired by the Almighty, when iie put
tne hurricane on tne programme or the
world s events." t i ' '
For ourselves, we ure bumble. Inquirers
after truth, not being fully satisfied in our
own minds as to the exact dividing line be
tween general and special Providence. We
are glad-that the organ of a Church which
speaks by authority is ready to enlighten us
on this subject. A blind Providence, which
destroys indiscriminately, ' would be no bet
ter than,' blind chance; and a Providence
which destroys as a lesson to mankind, when
the lesson, ts a mystery, would not be any
perceptible impsoveiMnL' As the Telegraph
assumes tbat these event are directed by a
wise purpose, will U expound the lesson
taught by the effects of the hurricane here?
What is taaght by the serious damage suf
fered by the Catholic Churches on fifth and

"A spirit of health, or a goblin damn'd?"
SiXAToft Summs'i speech has frightened
the Republicans. It is stated by Washington
correspondents tbat Republican members
attempted to persuade him not to make ft,
and manifested, While he Was making It, that
they did not sympathise with it. The New
York Tribune deprecates it as .endangering
the admission of Kansas. The Gazette of
this city indorses what the Tribune says of
the speech, and disparages it as "calculated
rather to provoke angry feelings . than to
persuade and convince!'' also for the rather
contradictory reasons that it-kas brought
together a vast number of facts to show the
effects of slavery, which have nothing novel
about them, and that It is the production of
a' theorist not practically acquainted With
mankind. It may be that a vast collection
of well known facts, with nothing novel
about them, indicates the production of an
unpractical theorist, in the Gazette concern.
Reason usually gets mixed up in tbat way
by the time it has revolved around its six-
cylinder. ' ' : ' - ,
The difficulty is, Republicanism is fright
ened at its own shadow. Mr. Sumner's
speech was an assault on slavery: not holding
it to be good where it is, and bad only where
it Is not, but .bod everywhere.. If Republi
cans do not believe slavery to be bad, what
justification have they for resisting It in the
Territories? If slavery is good where it is.
it is good everywhere. Unless Republican
ism can make out a case against slavery
itself, the party has no ground to stand on.
This is what Mr. Sumner undertook, and the
whole party is shaking in its shoes. It hoped
to conceal its features by nominating a man
who hod not been exposed to attack,- and to
smuggle itself into the administration, just
as the ostrich slicks its head in the sand and
Imagines itself hidden; but Mr. Sumner has
exposed its hinder parts, and the whole party
is alarmed for the consequences.
Pro-slavery men do not shrink from a dis
cussion of the merits of slavery. They have
freely challenged it in Congress and in the
press by advancing the propositions that
slavery is founded in Scripture and an im
memorial custom, that it is the proper rela
tion between the white and black races, "the
most safe and stable basis for free inslitu
tions," "the corner-stone of the Republican
edifice, "t "a great moral, social and political
blessing; "the normal condition of human
society best for. the happiness of both races,'
and that "the very keystone of the mighty
arch which, by its concentrated strength, is
able to sustain our social superstructure, con
sists in the block marble block of African
slavery.'.' " . '
These propositions hove been reiterated in
Congress. If they are true, the Republican
party has no right to be, for it is founded on
insistence to the extension of this relation.
If they are not true, and the Republican
party fears or fails to attack and overthrow
them, it has no right to be, for it fears to do
what it proclaims to be its duty. The friends
of slavery boldly fling out their banner and
challenge discussion on the abstract right of
African slavery: 'the Republican party, which
insolently assumes to -be the only party
founded on principle, shrinks from the dis
cussion of the principle, and frowns on Mr.
Sumner because he will not be gagged.
If there is any tangible principle in Re
publicanism, Mr. Sumner represented it in
his speech. If there is not, what right has a
party to moke the country hideous with its
soulless, unwholesome corpse? '"' ' ;
Mr. Sumner recapitulated the propositions
which had been laid down in Congress, in
favor of slavery and took issue with them.
The propositions themselves were an invita
tion to this. . In Congress was the very place
to discuss them. Republicans affect a great
sensitiveness about any infringement on the
freedom of the press, or of speech, or of the
government mails in the slave States, yet
they shrink from the discussion of slavery in
Congress where they have a perfect right to
it, because, as the Tribune says, it may offend
the South ; and, as the Gazette says, it may
" provoke angry feelings." It actually seems
that this party which, with a ghastly face
tiousnsss, used to call itself "the party of
freedom " is ready to give up the right of free
speech in Congress, because it may provoke
angry feelings. Starting on anti-slavery
fanaticism, it has found the doctrine of negro
human rights too heavy to carry, and instead
of helping the party to rise, the negro question
is sinking it into negro subjection. Already
it is cowed into silence on its " great princi
ple " j by the fear of " provoking angry
The party boasts tbat it has put in its plat
form the declaration that "All men are cre
ated equal." It is said that the venerable
Joshua R. Giddings was about shaking off
the dust from his feet against the Convention,
when he was brought back by the reiteration
of. that "self-evident" and practical "truth."
This was the doctrine of Mr. Sumner's speech,
yet it almost created a stampede in the party.
It is not likely that this speech will have
much circulation in the Republican papers.
The Tribune throws cold water on it and pub
lishes a brief abstract. The Gatette is occu
pied with a debate in Indiana, and can not
find room for the most elaborate speech which
has been made in Congress during this ses
sion, aud tliut by a Senator of the high
eat scholastic attainments.' As the Re
publican press is .-' afraid to touch this
thing, and as our IimjU. prevent us
from publishing it, we will . attempt to
state briefly the plan and general tenor of the
speech; and we will remark, first, it is strictly
parliamentary, courteous, and free from per
sonalities, and has nothing which can afford
any excuse for the Republican cowardice in
regard to it. Taking for its text the propo
sitions on the right of slavery, wlich we have
mentioned, and others of the same nature,
it takes issue with tbesa alL It argues that
slavery must be resisted on social, econom
ical, and moral, as well as on political grounds;
that it is Inconsistent with civilisation, and
necessarily results in the barbarism 'of the
dominant race;' that in the word of Mr
Wesley, "Slavery is the'sum of all iniquity;
that it destroys female chastity, marriage and
parental relations, that - It ' shuts ' out
the ' means ' of ' education,' , crushes' in
dustry, and is a dead weight on material
prosperity,'. ' Jbesa , points are divided
and ramified, and each is fortified with a mass
of evidence drawn from statistics, aud chiefly
from Southern authorities. . The relative
progress in wealth and population, and es
pecially in adooaUoo, institutions of learn
ing, public libraries, and all the means of
intellectual , culture, J shown by statistics
carefully and ingeniously collected. As an
instaaoe of the points made in this com
parison, he shows by census returns othst,

barbarism, which 1 cause! In tte. dotni
aarit race, hrr illustrates by the evidence
Southern writers, from Jefferson down
a recent period, and mora particularly
the manners of the Southern mem
bers of ' Congress. He denied that the
Constitution recognised property in
tan, or could by its own force carry
slavery Into the Territories.. The speech oc
cupied fourteen columns of the New York
Herald, ft paper to which' the South seem to
have given the monopoly of Circulating ant!
slavery literature In tbat section. The inor
dinate length of the speech is caused partly
the quantity of evidence quoted, but
ohicfly by the elaborateness of the argument,
Whatever may be thought of the conclusions
drawn; the evidence itself is carefully selected
and of a kind that can not be impeached. '
The speech Is Republican. It takes the
only ground that the party has to stand on,
Its only offense against Republicanism is
that it advocates it with great bojdncss and
power, and with the most unsparing invec
tive and sarcasm on slavery and slave society.
When the party denies the argument or the
policy of this speech, it denies its own right
to exist, and proves Itself to be what m its
early days it was declared to be by the South
ern Senators, as a reason for exclndtng it
from the Committees not a wholesome or
Sabbath-breaking in a Horn.
A milkman was arrested, recently, in Phil-
adclphia, for blowing his horn on Sunday to
announce his arrival with the lacteal nutrl
ment. The Philadelphians must be a very
unscriptural people. The horn was the chief
Instrument of worship in ancient times, and
the sacred writers speak frequently of ex
alting their horn.- The high festivals and
sacred processions of the Israelites were al
ways accompanied by a great blowing of
rams' horns, and tbey were called to their
regular devotions and ceremonies by the
blowing of horns. By custom and associa
tion, the horn is much more appropriate for
the air of the Sabbath than the bells which
our milkmen use; and when brass horns of
evory kind are allowed to be blown without
limit or reason, and the skin of innocent
calves to be beaten with that power which
characterizes American music, to bury the
dead on Sunday, it 'would seem that at least
a single horn might be permitted to an.
nounce the means of lift to the living.
