A telegram of the 30th u!t., says:
A pitch battle between the Ital

the Italians displaying a white flu,
and they afterwards promised to
leave to-morrow. Four Vtalians
were killed. The police were on the
spot in force.
Merciful Powers ! What horrid

such atrocities are occurring in one

BEEOHER AND SUNDAY.
The Sunday concert question has
elicited considerable discussion from
the pulpits of New York and Brook
lyn. On last Sunday Mr. Beeeher
gave his views on the subject from
the text in Isaiah lviii 13, 14. Ever
loose in his religious ideas and ever
opposed to what he styles " old the
ology " and ' orthodoxy " Mr.
Beeeher makes what will be consid--ered
a wide departure by the evan
gelical world, and on the principle
"higher planes," "development,"
" spiritual progress," &c, authori-
zes a use of the Sabbath but little
known among the christian people
of this country at least.
Like everything that everemena-
ted from the pen of this great man
thij discourse is plausible and beau

Such an observance of the Lord's
Day as educates a man, rescues
liim from toil, enlarging the scope
of his vision, of his thought power,
giving aspirations towards what is
spirit this makes it or transcend
ant value to the citizen. You ask
me it' I think it would be pood to
bi in in concerts and plays : No,
i don't. VV by would it not be
good? Why would it not be just as
right for 3'ou to go inside of a pub

don't interrupt anybody else, as for
you to discuss .he questions of Cal
o lit i l
vinism : i.y, consiaering
church choirs, may not Strakosch
go to the Academy of Music and
jrive opera ? For one thing I can
answer that question on a purely
lecral ground. It is because the
laws forbid it. If you ask me what
right they have to make such a law-
it these people don't iuterfere with
anybody elses liberty ; why have
tliev not the riht to observe the
Sunday in these sajs? My reply
is, from the nature of your institu
tions I don't see any ground upon
which you can restrain them. I
don't see how the law can interfere.
1 don't see the ground on which you
rnnke that distinction, to violate the
right of the people to conduct them
selves according to their own best
judgment. You ask me if there is
the dealing of the United States i a refining force in them. I simply

The New York Times, though a
Republican paper, has shown a most
commendable independence in its
discussion of the doings of the ad
ministration and a laudable zeal in
behalf of a just and proper govern
ment of the Southern States. It
ha3 not only bitterly denounced the
action of the government in sending
troops to these States at the call of
every vile carpet-bag and scallawag
officer holder, but has stoutly insis
ted that there should be a change
of policy on the part of the govern
ment in regard to the character of
men appointed to Federal offices
throughout the South.
The Times in passing pays its
respects to Attorney General Wil
liams. It says :
"There can be no question that
the advice of Mr. Williams on
Southern questions has, generally
speaking, been rash and mischiev
ous, lie has practically sat in
judgment on the constitutions of
various States, and construed tnem
according to his own ideas. And
this is an exercise of his duty which
the Federal Constitution never could
have provided for, since it does not
even recognize the existence cf a
Cabinet at all. The Attorney Gen
eral has no sort of right to decide
questions of local government in the
Southern or any other States. Mr.
Williams has, in effect, done this
more than once, and if the Pres.
dent were to remove him, avid put
in his place some great lawyer who
possessed the confidence 01 the peo
ple, we believe that he would do
much for the Republican party, and
what is of greater coniequence,
would render a substantial service
to the whole country."
The Times then remarks that it
ha3 ' more than once ventured to
remind the people of the North that
misgovernment and lack of prosper
ity at the South will inevitably re
act upon them. No man can say
he is in a healthy state if one of his
arm3 is paralyzed." This is strict
ly true, and the North has begun to
realize it. There can be no doubt -that
a great part of the financial
distress now upon the country, is
due to the unw;se and unlawful ac
tion of the Federal government to
wards the South, by which it has
become in manv nlaces almost a
desolate waste and produced a with
ering effect upon the entire country.
It it were not for the fact that we
believe the American people were
beginning to realize this truth, we
would have but little hope for our
ciuntry materially or otherwise.

The Commissioner brings grave
charges agaiust the American
tourists, making them out nothing
more than'a gin; dfJthieyes. " The
Commissioner " estimates that these

brought on an average sevm trunks
filled with dutiable, goods claimed
to be personal baggage, not dutia
ble. We have thus," anxiously
reckons the Commissioner, intent
on his mathematical and moral
problem, " an aggregate of 257,810
trunks filled with articles claimed as
djty free, representing, on a valu
ation for each trunk of $500, the
enormous sura of 128,905,000
" It is well known," he assures us,
that much of this baggage is in real
ity intended to be put upon the
market as merchandise. Most of
the persons engaging in this im
portation are people of wealth."

Between the conditions of trade
in England and the United Slates,
avs the Boston Post, there is an in
tense sympathy, aud whatever dis
turbs or benefits one country has to
a greater or less degree a corres
ponding effect upon the other. The
financial panic of over a year ago in
this country extended it3 blighting
grasp even to the trade and industry
of Great Britain. Prices fell off,
wages became reduced, and business
generally stagnated in proportion.
Up to the end of September, the
revenue, instead of showing the
promised increase over the first six
months of the last financial year,
exhibited a decrease of six and a
half million dollars. The impulse
in the downward direction, however,
had then been exhausted, and the
gratifying reaction has now set in.
For the five weeks between October
1 andNovember the revenue re
ceipts exceeded those of the corres
ponding period of last year by seven
and a half millions of dollars, so
that the deficiency of the first half
of the year has not only been mado
up, but there is a gain of a million.
This recovery from depression is
not fitful or factitious. It signalizos
a new and valid rea Ijustmeut of

seems to have repented of it was Con

borrowers, and the very next Legis

TheJV. Y. Tribune puts forth
the following illustration of the
working of the civil service reform.
Gen. Butler has so far recovered
from the paralysis brought on by
the recent election that he has be
gun to pay his debts after the popsn

school. An anti-Butler man had

lina Central Road is expected to
celebrate its completion, a steamer
will be chartered for an excursion,
and the whole country, it seems,
will be given over to jollification
during the four days of the Fair.
Says the Chic3gr Tribune : 'We
cive for what it is worth a rumor
that the counsel engaged by Beeeh
er, TiUon et al., have decided to
withdraw from, the various libel suits
on the ground that they would in
volve private matters not fit to be
made public. It is " not possible
that the eminent legal gentlemen
mentioned in our dispntches are such
fools as to think that it is in their
power to savethe reputation of both
Beeeher and Tilton. One of them
must be pilloried for a rascal, or the
people will never be content.'
The Lynchburg News thinks that
"next to the cirpet1 baggers the
dogs are the greatest enemies- of
the productive industry of our
State," and calls the attention of
the Legislature in advanc; to sheep
devouring dogs. The Xews savs:
" We are too poor to support the

if, after we have shared what little
meat we have with them by day,

The pc organ of the admi.v. mra1
tiou at Washington, the National
Republican, is honest enough at
last to m.ia the following confess
sions: '7undreds of thousands of
men are idle in every State in the
