In its political results our short but
tremendous and unparalleled civil
war of four years will be as effective

as much in these four years of war to

" manifest destiny " of the country as

internal convulsions from Charles the

Henky Cook, a colored barber, pre
sented himself yesterday in the Mayor's
Court as the attorney in a case iv which
Mrs. Martha Rose was plaintiff in a suit
for $20. There was no controversy over
the suit, as the parties had settled it
amicably ; but Cook insisted upon Ills
right to practice in the court, and upon
this point the Mayor ruled against him.
It may not be generally known that, in
order to practice in a court in Virginia,
the party must be vouched for asof good
character, twenty-one years of ago, and
he must have undergone an examination
as to flfuess berbre three judges. Jf he
passes successfully, he then must pro
cure a State aud county license. Cook

the other hand, denies this story of Mis.

THE WATER QUESTION
It will not do, gentlemen, to sit down
over the magnificent water demons! ra
tion of last night. Certainly it was a
very grand affair, an etlbrt to be re
membered, to be talked about and cher
ished, as the forerunner, we hope, of a
great event. Hut for all this there is
much to be done to-day. Gentlemen
must be on the alert. The question is a
very plain one. Kvery citizen under
stands it; and after all that has been said
iijioii it in these columns, it is unneces
sary to debate it futher now.
Vote early, ami see that all your
friends find time to go to the polls.
THE QUEEN AND THEFENIAN WOMEN
As a specimen of the grave facts upon
which the English Oovernnient is
making arrests of Fenian women as
j well as men, weeopy the following from
the London Star :
"Two wretched ballad-singers are
brought up for droning in the streets of
Kingstown a "seditious song" called
"The Green Above the Red"—a well
known poem by the late Thomas Davis,
which we dare say has often been sung
in a London-drawing-room. The bal
ls:! singers are remanded for a week—
sent to prison for a week —in order that
the police may make inquiries into their
character and objects, and thus assist
the magistrates todecide on what fur
ther courseof proceedings is to be adopt
ed against them. "A girl who sees
some people arrested makes use of a vul
gar term of con tempt in connect ion with
the name of the Queen, and, though she
expresses tearfuf contrition immediately
after, she is—not punished summarily
for her improper language—but solemn
ly committed fortrial, and sent to prison
to abide the due course of justice.'

than Harris is before a court of justice
striving to be divorced from his wife,
whom he charges w ilh many immorali
ties. The contest has been on trial about
a week, and full reports of the disgust
ing dpfails of the case are given in tin-
New York papers. Filthy it is; hut not
more so than other cases of ils class.
Indeed, all such cases resemble each
other so much that we cannot see the
novelty which justifies their being re
ported. Mrs. Harris has been hugged
and kissed by all sorts of people during
a year or two back—she has been started
in odd situations by her daughter and
the servants in the very house in which
her children were born; she has taken
advantage of her husband's absence to
receive Major Williams of the army,
and the brothers Miner and other trash
from New York; and when t'hlded by
her husband for her imprudence, she
calls him au "old fool;" she has had d
dozen lovers from first to last; aud,
though a woman of forty and the mother
of eight children, she is found to be as
frisky as any bad woman of twenty.
Jonathan Harris is a man of fifty, of a
weak intellect and a religious turn of
mind, but with some businesstaot. He
rises from small beginnings to be a man
of influence, with an annual income of
IIO,OM. He represents the State in the
Legislature, Is occasionally -elected
mayor pf New London, and Is always
promlnept at loual religious convoca
tions. Though It does not appear that
he coveted hi* neighbor's goods, he is a
M.iine-lawite, v proselyler, and some
thing of a busybody. Ile lias an interest
in aquack medicineknown as the "Pain
killer," and is engaged, like men of hi?
class, in other speculations. So, it will
be seeu, that Mr. and Mrs. Harris in
court are just likeany otlier couple seek
ing justice under similar clrotimstancea.
Yet, the New York World seizes upon
this pair anil holds them up »* a type of
New England people, and Implies that
[heir social life is a lair sample of the
social lite of all -New England. The
writer is not quite Ignorant of the in
justice he is doing i out the opportunity
is at hand tor a limp nt New England,
mid bis little mind cannot resist it. He
serins lo think that, by doing this he is
doing a thing that will please another
section of the country. indeed, he
seems to have had three or four motives
for taking up the "Harris Case" for dis
cussion : one of which appears to be an
indecent tling tit the Chief Justice of the
Supreme Court of the United States.
Anil a very elunisey fling, it will be
observed, it Is. "Atthe very moment,"
says the World, "when the rebellious
armies of the slavo-corruptetl South
are surrendering 16 the superior
forces of the Union, a daughter of
the house of Harris is betrothed
to one of tho special friends of
Mr. ex-Secretary of tlieTreasury Chase."
What was the necessity of introducing
Mr. Chase's name ? 1 f Mr. Thompson,
who was engaged loMiss Harris—which
engagement had be<'ii cancelled by the
lady—is "one of the special friends of
Mr. ex-Secretary oftlieTrcasiiry Chase,"
how, in the name of (iod, does that ac
cident justify the introduction of the
Chief Justice? Is lie brought forward
in the hope of humiliating a "radical."
And why do \vc complain ! Is not the
whole tirade a strain to assail New Kng
laiid and New England men, with the
ambitious object of bringing the most
advanced section of the nation into dis
repute. If the task were it pleasant au
tumnal employment if it were a work
to engage the hands of gentlemen—how
easy it would be to pelt New York with
her own putrid garbage—with her Mi
ners ami her Hoboken womeu. Unroot!

Recount the history of the commercial

and exactly light for a candle display.
The weather was mild and of about the
right temperature for a street ex

ladies and gentlemen. Indeed all the
f thoroughfares through whichthe bright

half-past six o'clock, the jubilee began,

come forth, and no one could tell
from anything' they said or did,
that they were opposed to the
Juniper juice. To tell the truth,
so fresh and beautiful did Mr- Fogies
folks seem, there can be no doubt of their
prior ae.juinlance with the water which
it is proposed to introduce into Norfolk
from Lake llrummond. The ferry-boats
from Portsmouth contributed to swell
J the crowd, and at » o'clock, when the
processionists began to "fall in," there
was a great mass of people extending
from the Atlantic to the National

began to stir; their prancing horses and
business movements, indicated that

cases of Edward B. ICetcbuni, late of the
firm of Ketchum, Son & Co., indicted
for forgery, and Henry B. Jenkins, for
merly of'the Phienix National Bank
charged with embezzlement and grand
larceny, were brought up on Monday in
the New York Court of General Ses
sions. Ex-Judge Allen, counsel for
Ketehuin, communicated by letter with
the District Attorney, informing him
that his client had intended from the
first to plead guilty ; but In compliance
with the instructions of his legal advis
ers, he temporarily pleaded not guilty,
in order that certain matters might be
arranged with the creditors of the firm.
The plea of guilty will be interposed
during the present term. The trial of
Jenkins was postponed till November,
in order that the validity of a certain
plea which his counsel ofier to make
uiiiy be examined. It is rumored that
tlie plea Is insanity ; but tlie particular
genus of mental or moral unsoundness
In' is laboring under wan not mentioned.
A motion will lie made on Friday to dis
charge Charles Brown, now in prison
charged with complicity in the alleged
defalcations of Jenkins. John Earle,
charged with robbery, was sent to the
State prison for three years.
The Boston Pout says General Butler
is a candidate for congress, to All the
vucany mude by the resignation of Mr.
(iooch. The Post adds: "Hewillbeon
tlie slump in a few days, and as lie has
many friends, it is not improbable that
he will l«' returned to congress." Gen
eral Battels: house is in the 7th congres
sional district of Massachusetts. His
barn is in the 6th, aud if he would take
u |i his residence there, he would be eli
gible for Mr. Oooch's seat." General
Bunks is also a candidate for the nomi
nation in this district. He supports the
president in his reconstruction policy.
It is said that Mr. James R. Hood, the
Chattanooga member of the Tennessee
Legislature, is preparing, with five
other members, articles of impeachment
against Governor Brownlow, upon the
Kioiinil that he has illegally appointed
Justices of the Peace and other officers
contrary to tlie laws of the State. The
action of Mr. Hood and his colleagues
will doubtless lead to an interesting and
exciting discussion in the Legislature.
