And this course was pursued, because it ra ely happened that at tne terms, some one or more of the higher grade of offences or atrocious crimes was not submitted to the Grand •»my tor their investiga. : on. But of late years, this custom has not always been observed, aud this, because, either from lüe L?!? 6 . 1100 of more general education ?u- , " U810n of knowledge, or as many tmnk from wise restriction upon the sale ot lntojricat.ng drir' s, the comm ; ssion ot crime.lias become more frequent.

Our laws proceed rather upon the theory ol punishment and example thau of re form of tie culprit; and now well such wisdom is justified of thepubl'c imuiuni ty from felonious cilmes, eveiy iutelU g«»»t man can answer for bimse'f. We pM know how much our system of pun ishment for such has been made the sub ject ol animadversion by sentimental writers, scribblers for newspapers, and other self-elected censors ot our crinrnal code, but *we have so far withstood all the obloquy aud reproach that have been heaped upon us. And we shall probably coutinne our present system indefinitely, for the great fact remains, notwithstand ing all which has been urged against oorporal punishment, that there is abso lutely less crime in Delaware than n any other part of the countiy according to population—which alone is argument enough w'hy it should not be abaudoned. We are noue of us insensible,of course, the effect of such pumsbment upou the iudividual receiving it; we all feel for him the more keenly, because generally when once it has ueeu indicted, he is ÄÄÄÄS mission of offences hke his own (as we assume it does more than any other penal yet inflicted) and is a safe warning to others of naturady depraved miud and heart, su rely, society is fu*ly justified iu indicting; for it lies the ligut to protect ltseJf aga ; nst ci;me iu the most efficient way consistent with human reason. And iu the face all of that lias been said to the contrary of our system of pun shing teloniors crimes not capital, some of the .most enlightened jurists in the country, on and oft the bench, are coming to coil sider^ it the best after all for the class of ofienders'to which we apply it—those felonious crimes, which denote iu him who commits them a wicked, depraved heart, abandoned to the commission of evil. Under other, aud what are called more humane aud enlightened systems, it is certain that crime is deplorably on th« increase, which can hardly be ac counted, for, save upon the grounds of inadequacy of punishment, for their laws for the repression of vice, and their whole education?! system, both secular and religious, are treated by them ?s being far in advance of our own. Your duties, gentlemen, as members of the Grand Jury, are very important and responsible, for you have to deal with public wrongs, or offences—that is, those matters of evil action that affect thecom munity at large. The latter are such as effect some merely private rights or in dividual prosperity and are redressible by the agency of suits at law between party and pa"ty, wherein satisfaction is had bv the verdict of a jury for a debt claimed, or by awarding damages for an un liquidated demand. The former are such as concern the whole community or so ciety at large, and are those with which the Courts of criminal jurisdiction have to deal—the first in the prosecution of which begins with you. * * * - * * With this brief address to you, you are now directed to retire to your chamber aud prepare for the consideration of such Dusiuess ts may be submitted to you; and we remind you, respectfully, of your oath: that the counsel ot the State, vour own and your fellows you kéep «reep secret.

Blciiabest, April 29—Tne niinist*r of foreign affairs has communicated to the Chamber of Deputies a convention with Russia, dated April 18, 1877, iu which the Prince-of Roumania assures to 'be Russians a free passage and the treat ment due a friendly army, and .the Czar binds himself to protect the rights of Roumania. 't he minister said the con vention w?s to secure respect for Rouma nian position as an iudividual State in accordance with the treaty of Paris. It imposed neither a change in Roumania's international relatiors nor their duty of lending the co-operation of her army. Roumania, adhering to the poiicv'of at tacking no one, but defending her frontier as far as possible, a similar convention has not been concluded with the Porte because it Lad transferred the seat of war to Roumanian territory, and had also persistently refused to recognize Houma r-'a or settle the questions which have been petfding for years. According to an additional convention the Russians are allowed to use Rouma nian roads, railways,rivers and telegraphs. The resources of the country are placed at their disposal for the supply of the army. The Roumanian authorities are to assist in erecting camps and forwarding baggage. Russian military trains and telegrams are to have the precedence ordinary traffic. The Russians pôwered to complete unfinished railroads and the necessa y ground for the purpose is ceded to them- The chief of the Rus sian military traffic department is empow ered, subject to the approval of the Rou - mauian minister of works, to dlsmis? Roumanian railway officials. The Rus sians are allowed to establish military stations and hospitals anywhere, except in Bucharest. Roumauia will, if required, provide material for the construction of boats, ships and bridges. Articles inten ded for tlie Russian army will be admit ted into Roumania duty free. The Rou maniau«uthorit'es will assist iu cap- 41 - ing Russian deserters. are em HINTS FOR WINDOW PLANTS. Those who are fortunate enough to own conservatories and employ gard eners do not need the hints in this par agraph. People, whose amusement it is to train a tew window plants, or to beautify a small space near the doo -, will find themselves greatly helped by procuring from the nearest green house |a peck or two of earth sifted fertilized and prepared for plan* • in pots. A small investment in this di rection may save many failu.es and disappointments with pet Hewers. A few drops of ammonia to a quart of water will turn the spray from fie watering pot iato a summer rain im parting to the water something of the condition which rain derives from the atmosphere. Plants in hard "cakey" earth cannot thrive, but a very little care in loosening the earth and keep ing it mellow obviates this trouble . ly The agony of the Louisiana repub licans is over. King, a supreme-court judge. was set up on a stolen bench by the Kellogg-Packard gang. Governor Nicholls ousted King, and the Presi dent gives him the collectorship as balm tor his hurts. We have not heard what Mr. Returning-Board An derson has to say about this breach of contract. He was to receive the col lectorship in part pay for his services ia giving the electoral vote of Louisi ana to Hayes. This ought to teach re turning-board villians that even a fraudulent President may be ungrate ful. We think the president might have done better than to give the best federal office in the state to a man wLo held a bogus judgeship. Gen. Stewart L. Woolford a prenn ent New York republican politician has accepted an invitation in address the literary societies of the University of Mississippi at Oxford, at the com mencement, the last Wednesday in June.

FROM WASHINGTON. to iu to of in It of at - THE SPEAKERSHIP AND THE DKMoCBATIC POLICY. THE SPEAKERSB P. Washington, April 29.—Republicans who enjoy the President's friendship,and who have ready access to him at aU \ tines, say that he has at lest arrived at the conclusion that it is not possible to elect an administA'aLlon man Speaker of the next House. There is no doabt but some of the radicals believed a few weeks ago, when the new Southern policy Ji ,r 't beiug inaugurated, that a few demo crats would barter their principles in order to gratify the President and iu re turn for suudry favors which would be bestowed upon them. The democratic line is now found to be unbroken, and the same mistaken politicians who ^ stantly told the President that a dozen more democratic members would sup port his policy to the extent of voting for a republican for Speaker now profess to be alarmed for fear that the democrats may stand together and demand the re peal of certain obnoxious political legist Jation before the passage o/the army ap propriation bill. WUH con. or A BUSH FOB DIPLOMATIC SERVICE. The applications for positions in the diplomat e service con.,;nue to increase in number, and it is said that there on file in the State Department paper re commending more than fity er Senators and ex-Kepresentaiivts for appoint > ments to foreign missions, or to consult ships with big salaries attached. It is said authortatively that the President has decided to make no diplomatic ap pointments, exc; pi to till vacancies,until Congress meet«. THE NEW ORLEANS COLLECTORSKIP. The contest for the New Orleans col lectorship has terminated ia the appoint. ment to that office of Judge John E. King. Judge Keng was a judge of the feupreme Court of Louisiaua under the Kellogg-Packard regime, and gave place .^'Congressman Spenoer, who resign ed his seat in the House under an aD nointment from Gov. Nicholls to the same position. Anderson and McMillan hare been urged for the collectorship. THE EASTERN WAR. All the fighting between the Russians and Turks thusfar reported has been at Batoun, a fortified Turkish post In Asia, on the eastern shore of the Black before which, it is a'leged, the Russia » have been twice repulsed with loss. It api-iars to be probable that a part of the Turkish fleet in the Black Sea assisted in the defense of Batoun, as we her r of it a little later bombarding Poti, a Russiau military post also on the Black Sea,north of Batoun and near the mouth of the river Pliasis. Eut these short, shaip contlicis on both sides of the Asiatic bor der line between Turkey and Russia have merely a secondary significance. The rep' seat of war is destined to be on the Danube. There no fighting has occurred up to the last; advices, nor is there likely to be until the Russian a. my moving throrgh Roumania by several routes gets into position. It lias been reported thaï a Russian force lias reached Giurgsvo. opposite Rntscliuck, on the south side of the Danube, where the Turks are strong ly entrenched and fortified, and have recently mounted quite a number of I Krupp guns brought by rail from Varna. These movements are simply to the series of sieges aud must take place before the Russians reach Adria-iople. preparatory battles that C-l.SL'Y '8 SUCCESSOR. Hayes Appo'ntlng an Old-Line Whig Collector at Hew (Mean«. Washington, April 29_Yesterday evening Hayes ended the squabble over the New Orleans C'allectoisbip by decid ing to appoint John E. K'ng, and direct ing his decision to be given to the press. Three names were submitted lothe Pres ident bv ex-Gov. Kellogg : T. C. Ander son, John E. Kiug aud Gen. McKillan. It is generally understood that Kellogg favored Anderson aud Packard King. Kellogg, however, made King a Justice of the Republican (Supreme Court, aud is on »ood relation.« with him. Hayes, iu talk ing with different Louisiona Republicans explained that he proposed to appoint a Republican, and should appoint none but Republicans, but he wished to get an old resident, a man of property and reputa tion, and, if possible, that political dodo, an Old Line Whig. King was spraker of the Whig Legislature of 1852, a Whig member of the Constitutional Conven tion before the war, and K ; ng according ly got the place. After the war K'ng was elected at a special election iu 1865 Congress as a Union man, has served seven or eight terms in the (state Legisla ture. and through Kellogg's appointment was a member of the Packard Supreme Court. Numerous conferences with Hayes leave the impression on Louisiana neliticians that, except Casey, whom Kiug will succeed, no officeholders in New Orleans will be removed before Congress meets. as to Under the desert land law passed by Congress lastsesion a few capitalists and and political managers in' Califor nia have gobbled up about fifty thousand acres in Kern county, in the southern part of the State,*nuch of it valuable hot tom land, and on the line ofthe projected irrigation canal ofthe Kern CouutyLand and Canal Company. It is alleged that the greater portion ofthe laud is not des ert land in tne intention of the law, hut that the act was loosely drawn in the in lnterest of the parties who secured its passage.
