THE ItA.ETI.nOUE I.lIISltOCI.IO.
It will be Been, from the news we publish
this morning, that the lladicnl revolutionists
in Baltimore have found a base minion,
exercising judicial functions, to set aside
the authority and action of the Chief
Executive, and to order the arrest and im
prisonment of the new Police Commis
sioners. This is flagrant rebellion. The
Legislature rwerved to itself and to tho
Governor, whan it was not in session, tho
exclusive jurisdiction in the appointment
and removal of these Commissioners. Tho
recourse of the old Commissioners, under
tho law, as it comes to us, was to submit to
the action of the Govornor, nud if they felt
aggrieved, to appeal to the Legislature upon
its as.-cmbling. The courts could only be
invoked as a last resort and then only to
determine the constitutionality of the law,
and whether the Governor and Legislature,
one or both, had noted within its provisions
and mandates. If groat and irroparablo
injury was about to otwtie from the action of
the Governor, tho utmost power of the court
would be to grant a temporary injunction
until the whole question could be investi
gated and judicially pronounced uKiil.
Instead of this, these disturbers of the public
repose, these corrupters of the public
morals, these violators of the laws, linve
found a Judge who treats the Governor's
appointees as felons, arrests them as of tho
barest of mankind, ami thnit them into
prison! Whatever may be the protended
justification of this high-handed outrage, it
is without the sanction of law jot precedent

The following is the reply which Judge
Bond made to "the application of the State

of Messrs. Valient ami Young: "As the
State Attorney for Baltimore city, it is your
duty to bring to the notice of the court the
very grave tacts you have just mentioned
It is the only tribunal here charged with
the punishment of crime and the preserva

suggest is contemplated. It is not our duty
to determine the questions in dispute be

Commissioners ; but it ought not to be truth
fully said that in the government ho long
established as thatjof Maryland, the only
way to obtain possession of an office is by
force of arms. The courts are open, and an
appeal to them can speedily be heard and
all official rights determined. This kind is
an unlawful assembly, and the parties en
gaged in it arc guilty of a breach of the
peace and must be immediately arrested.
All the power of this court shall be exer
cised with vigor and promptness to prevent
such a violation of law, and the public peace
shall be preserved at all hazards.
The facts that persons claiming rightfully
to be policecommifsioners are about to place
persons on the streets as police officers,
charged with the duty of preserving the
public peace, is calculated to alarm the pub
lic mind. The dred of a collision between
the two forces, and of an ultimate armed
conflict, will fill the minds of peaceable and

4:45 p. M. It is not true that General
Canby proposes declaring martial law. The
General sent for Mayor Chapman and the

pleasant interview with the General at his
headquarter a few moments ago. He
simply desired to be informed by them of
the condition of atlairs, and as to the citv

the General that they had extra force on

As it is a subject of much discussion at

three days after such service make return of

A fortnight ago reference was made in
this paper to the apathy which seemed to
prevail among the Conservatives in regard to
the Legislative elections. It was urged in
strong terms, that they idiould nominate re
liable candidates, qualify voters under the
franchise law, and poll every vote. It has
not been done, and the consequence is that
tire returns from various counties show the
election of the Radical, candidates. We can
make allowance for the repugnance which
the people feci to Ihe franchise law, but is it
wise for those who are being beaten to the
earth under tho blows of tyranny to lie su
pine and suffer themselves to be bound hand
and foot ? Does it become- men who have
been free, and cherish the hope to be oO
again ? We cannot so see it. There are not
five counties in the State in which, if the
proper efforts were made, true Conservatives
could not be returned to the Legislature. It
has been done twice in Davidson county
within a month. It could have been done in
Sumner, Smith, Bedford, Hamilton and
Carter. If, "however, the people of these
counties, and those yet to elect on the loth
of this month, see fit to let the elections go
by default, and commit the destiny of the
State to Radical management, so be it. The
view that matters have become so bad, that
it is best td permit them to go on from bad
to worse, may be a wise one. It may be the
true policy to allow the farce of the fran-
olibo law to be fully exhibited. In its very
shameletsneis and utter mockery of re
publicanism, it may be that its true correc
tive is to be found. We have, however, at
tempted to read the signs and faithfully in
dicate them, and must say that in the defeat
of Balie Peyton, and other sound and
true men, who.have consented to stand be
fore the people as candidates, and the elec
tion of such men as arc being ncrmitled to
defeat them, we see nothing but evil.

New York, No v. 5. The Herald's Wash
ington special says it is probable that Gen.
Grant has at lost, per instructions of tiie
President, taken up the Mexican question,
and will push tho matter with his usual zeal
and earnestness, so far as he may be author
rized. On Saturday morning he invited Senor
Romero to his headquarters for a confiden
tial interview, which meet took place and
lasted for some time.
A staff meeting was held at Gen. Grant's
headquarters after the departure of Senor
Romero this morning, but what connection
this may have with the Mexican question
is at present merely conjecture; but it is
stated and believed that the Mexican ques
tion has been re-opened with France, al
though it stands without change as last pub
lished, where the note from Druyn De
L'huys placed it.
The Government is wailing to sec how
the French act up to the first of the coming

President Juarez has written a letter, in
which he again asserts his unwillingness to
consider any projects looking to a cession of

States; furthermore, it is known that some
three years ago Don Joso Domingo Cortez
came to this city and proposed, before the
execution, the annexation to the United
States of Chihuahua and the States of Mexi
co on the Pacific coast, in order, as he said, to
free them from French intervention, and that
Juarez instructed Senor Romeo to officially
deny that Cortez had any right to make any

Baltimore, Nov. 5. In the Court of
Appeals this forenoon Mr. Latrobe, on
behalf of the new Commissioners, announced
that tho writ of habeas corpus had been served
on the warden of the jail this morning, and
added that he had just learned that the
warden had been at the court house without
the prisoners; that in reply to an inepjiry
made of him lie had said his means of con
veyance were exhausted, and that he had
come hither to get a supply.
Mr. Latrobe added in a sarcastic strain
that he thought there were other Iiacli stands
nearer the jail than the Circuit Court room.
He would not say whether this was or was
not merely a continuation of the efforts of
the other side to consume time. He did
think, however, it looked like it.
Judge Eartol reminded the counsel that
the warden was not obliged to make a return
instantly. The law gives three days in
which to make his return.
Mr. Schley said that he considered that
the intent of the law in this particular case
wasj that three days should be the utmost
limit, and unless there was unavoidable im
pediments, he was bound to produce the
prisoner without delay.
Judge Cartol said the writs were issued by
him at five o'clock on Saturday evening, but
it appeared that for some reason they were
not served until this morning,
Mr. Sehler begged that the court would
give reasonable time further for the warden
to make his return and produce the prison
11:30 a.m. The prisoners not appearing,
Mr. ilornitz, on behalf of the sheriff, said :
"We have now waited one and a half hours
after the hour named for the return of the
writ. It was evident that the warden was
seeking a pretext for delay; lie therefore, on
behalf of his client, the high slier if, moved
a petition that his Honor command the
deputy sheriff to forthwith bring the warden
before the court, together with the high
Mr. Schley said he would, on behalf of
his clients, have a similar petition to offer.
Mr. Alexander, the counsel for the old
Commissioners, now appeared and expressed
a desire to be heard on the subject. lie un
derstood the warden of the jail was now in
consultation with counsel, and he had no
doubt some return to the writ would be short
Messrs. Schley, Latrobe and Herwitz de
sired to know if Mr. Alexander could in
form them what the return would be.
Mr. Alexander said he was not counsel
for the warden, and could not say. He
hoped and expected, however, that by one
o'clock such a return would be made as
would render any further proceedings here

on the verdict in the case of Lumsden. The
Catholics of this city assert boldly that
Lumsden was discharged on religious
grounds, and that the evidence against him
was stronger than that against JlcMahon.

assured of adequate military protection at
