City Counoil held an adjourned sion, last eveuing, for tbe purpose passing upon several matter» of legiela presented by the Legislative Com of tion mittee. Tbe first bill was one providing for tbe change of tbe fiscal year from Jan uary to July. By ita provisions tbe year instead of ruuning from January to January, will run from July to July. Tbe appropriation! will be made at tbo first stated meeting in June, tbe esti mate# having been made in tbe pre vious May. Council is authorised to borrow enough money to carry on the city's affairs until July 1, 1881, and is sue promissory notes for tbe same, payable in tour annual installments. The appropriations already made will run to June 80, of this year, and then tbe new appropriations will go into ef. feet and run until J uly 1, of next year. Tacked to tbe bill is a provision that the Mayor and Council shall not be empowered to borrow money for other purposes than named in the bill, and for suoh oibers as are already pro vided for by law. Mr. Rodney opposed any obauge of the fiscal year, but. favored tbe change of tbe official year of tbe olty to tiie first of January, to make it ooiucirlent with tbe fiscal year. 1 bis, be thought, could be effected by chaugiug tbe city election from September to December, and fixing tbe first of Jauuary as tbe time for tbe commencement of tbe of ficial terms of members of Council aud other elective officers of tbe city.' In regard to biidging over the financial vaoaucy between Jauuary, wbeu tbe appropriations are made, aud July, when tbe taxes te meet them are re ceived, Mr. Rodney favored an arrange ment by which money sufficient Tor Hit purpose would be adraueed each year by tbe banks. Messrs. R. U. laylor, Paynler and others opposed any system that would necessitate tbe boirowiug of money from year to year. Finally, after furtherdiaoassion, the bill was laid over antil Thursday even ing. The next bill was one providing that all land iu the o S»coud, Eighth ami Niutu wards, on which manufacturing establishments fur tbe employment of labor may ho erected shatll be exempt from State, county or municipal taxation for tbo space of ten years.

He was repeatedly warned by the Mayor to keep quiet. At tbe conclusion of the evidence me Mayor required the young man to pay $2 and costs for betug drunk and disorderly. Tbe sentence seemed to surprise the man Smith, and ke nattily, spoke up to ike Mayor "well if you tiue him for be ing drunk, I'll be damned if 1 dont think you are drunk, too."

Whipping in Jersey, CONFLICTING VIEWS ON THE GRAND JURY'S PRESENTMENT. OPINIONS OF THR BENCH, BAB AND PULPIT ON TUB BH-ESTABLISH MENT OF THE WHIPPING-POST IN ESSEX COUNTY. New ABE, January 16.—The recom mendation of tbe Grand Juiy in regard to the establishment of tbe whipping post for wife-beatars is generally com mented on here. Many prominent men approve the proposition, while others firmly deprecate it. fiberiff Peckwell, Constable John Post end other old res idents remember this mode ol punish ment adopted more then fifty years ego. Sheriff Veit Rentaeleer says he would beve wife-bee r re lashed end County Clerk bmitb thinks tbit mode of puuiabment would beve e good effect' Judge McCarter says be it in favor ef tbe wbippiug-post and speaks freely tbe subject. The Grand Jury was excellent one aud the presentment good. In England Judges b»ve authority to Impose tbe penalty of tbe lash for c*r tain off nsea. bo alto in Delaware.aud In that State burglary, as s consequence, has become quite rare, '« here is a class oi professions! criminals to whom im prisonment is not punishment. In fact, some criminals commit crime to be sent to Jail. They would fear tbe lasb. 7o say whipping it barbarous is simply to be seutimenial. Ex-Judge Titswortb bolds the opposite view. He ssys be would be sorry to see any such humilia tion of humanity practiced in tbis city. Tbe spirit of tbe age is to make men think more of themselves. A man who is whipped publicly would lose the le aped of bis family and be looked down upon by the community. He would be degraded and his family disgraced. He could think of nothing better than lm Î risoumeut for wife-beaters. Dr. C. F. . Leblbsck ssys it is ridiculous to talk of restoring tbe wbippiug-post. City '1 re saurer Wiuaiis tbiuka differently.— Major O'Counor approves of the wbip piug-post for wife-bealers, and Prosecu tor Abeel ssys bq believes in the wbip ping-post, sod to test public opinion will probably draft s bill providing whipping of certain offenders, and bave it introduced into tbe Legislature. He would have the puntsbmeut inflicted in Judge F. H. Teae'a opinion if that tbia mode ia out of date. While bn was on the bench be did not see tbe difficulty which tbe Graud Jury points out or knew anything about wife beating which made him think it necessary to provide apecial puniabment for. Senator Frau da would be willing to introduce to the Legislature a bill providing for whip ping wife-he.ters, but his support of ii would depend mucb on the way in wbieh it is proposed to bave the whipping done. Kx-Ssuator James L. Hays said that dis graceful and degrading aa whipping la, it ia not loo bau for a wife-beater. A bill providing for such punishment ought to pass. Rev. Dr. J. H. Mcllvane, Rev. Wm. T. Findley, D. D., aud Rev. Mr. Kelley favor the laah, while Rev. Henry Baker and Rev. J. C. Suow oppose it.

ANECDOTEOF SENATORSHARON [From the Nevada Appeal.] When Congressman Daggett was in Caudelarla be told a good story on Sena tor Sharon. Sharon haTbeenJa gréa: read er In his lime, aud when he baa several drinks in his uack, as is some limes tbe case, he is somewhat arrogant as to hit knowledge of poetry aud history. Oue day be was iuvited te Boston to attend a grand banquet given iu honor of tbe poet Longfellow by a lot of literary «harps. Sharon waa of course, introduced to all tbe guests, and squally, of course, be iu imedalely forgot all tbe names. Finali; tbe company was sealed, Sharon's left, band neighbor being a quiet little gentle man of unobtrusive manners. Tbs wine was nnusually flue, and Nevada's Cali fornia Senator was soon iu conversation with those around him. One of his statements in regard to a historical occurrence called forlb a mild objection from bis left band neighbor. "1 can assare you, sir, that I am dead posted OD that point," sharply responded the honorable Senator, who was some what nettled at having bia historical ac curacy questioned. Tbe quiet gentle man old not reply. He was vanquished. Sharon was naturally proud of bis vic tory, aud after tbe company bad letl the table be sought the boat to find out tbe name ot bis conquered opponent. " you mean that gentlemen leaning aeainsl the mantelpiece?" "Yes." "That's Bancroft, tbe historian." Nevada's Cali fornia Senator bad the grace to order bis carriage.

Washington, January 16. —Senator Wallace said to-night that he did not bolieve the Democratic members of tbe Legislature would support any Repub lican for Senator. "If there are abuses within tbe ranks of tbe Republican party of Pennsylva nia," said Mr. Wallace, "I do not know that tbe Democratic party is called upon to reform them. If tbe people of the State wish to correct ex lsting abuses they can cast their votes against tbe dominant party. At tbe same time the injustice which the Democratic party fered because of the apportionment, both Congressional and for members of tbe Stats Legislature, made by tbe Republican Legislature, bas been so grievous that it is not strange almost any plan to be rid of the burden should be considered. There are 860,000 Democratic voters in tbe State repre sented in the next Cougress by eight Democrats, while 875,000 Republicans have nineteen Representatives. In Philadelphia 60,080 Democratic voters bave ten members uf the State Assem bly, while 70,000 Republican voters bsve 28 members of tbe Assembly. Counlies have been siioed in half to se cure Republican gains in tbe Legisla; ture, and members of the Democratic couni iea have been massed together, increasing Democratic majorities in Congressional districts, and making a gross inequality ef representation. Under a new apportionment of tbe House of Representatives tbe State will be redistricted." ot our State has suf Star v I UK HlmsslI so That Hie Bie ter Might have Food. Washington, Jan. 16.—A story of self-denial that ia tarely equalled has just come to iigbt. The culmina' ion aud denouement took place yesterday in tbe War Department. A physician who some months ago came to tbis oity and opened a modest little office on Seventh street, yesterday ascended to the third story of Secretary Ram sey's department, and, stepping from tbe elevator, was seen to stagger and then fbll heavily, bis head striking against a doorway of tbe hall. He was picked up by a number of cleiks and a physician was called. The doctor said that the man was starving to death* They adminisiered brandy to him, which be at first refused to take, as it was afterwards ascertained on temperance principles. Finally, a small quantity of dilated brandy was forced through his clenched teeth, and afterwards a sandwich was given him. He seized the pieoe of bread and bam and was about to swallow it without masticating, when be was prevented, aim sums broth was substituted. Af ter lyiug awhile on a lounge he recov ered, and soon his story was told. He and bis sister live together. He could not get enough money to procure food for them bo b, so he heroically starved himself, teliiug his sister that he was taking his meals "down town." He had ou yesterday morning spent the last cent of which he was possessed for a soup bone. After his sister had pre pared the soup and asked him to par lake of it he refused and wem out. He proceeded to the War Department aud fell as detailed. Secretary Ram sey learned the man's story, and im mediately had bis war record looked up. It was found to be satisfactory, and the gentleman was at once given a clerkship iu the Surgeon General's office.

One of i he oibers is a Pittsburg man, whose seat is in dispute and who'may be currying favor with the domiijaut parly aud another was a Philadelphia member. There is no reasonable doubt that at least ninety Democrats will act together for Democratic interests ss tbe caucus majority may determine- Sena tor Wallace was renominated, receiving U6 votes on the first ballot, tbe otbei votes beiug divided between ex-Senator Buckalew and a few local favorites. But Senator Wallace's nomination was made unanimous. A slight disposition was manifested to entend encouragement to tbe anti-Cameron bolters, but s general discussii g of tbis subject was prevented and a motion to adjourn wlthont mak ing a nomination was quickly voted down. Tbe Democrats will adhere to tbeir caucus nominee and will only re convene the caucus wbeu the Republi can factions become irreconcilable and one side or the other offers terms to the Democratic members. At present the Démocratie teutiment is decidedly against any alliance. Tbs Republican anti caucus element claims to be sup ported by local aeulimeut and tbe inds peudeul pres« of tbe Slate. Tbe auti Cainerou members bave pledged tbem eelves, most o' them, to voie for Grow at But, never to vote for Oliver or auy other Cameron candidate, aud io put a new man in the field whenever two tbirds uf tbeir number shall agree on that policy aud designate tbe man. Oliver's friends profess lo be sanguine of bis electiou, but no well-informed politi cian eau discover more than a hundred votes for him. •*l'm drawing a conolusion ' remarked ▲duainldab as he pulled the cal 's tall—Ed L.

Tbe resolution recites the allegation that certain documente pre sented to tbe commieein by tbe British government contained false, fraudulent and forged statements, Mo., and reqi_ the President to call tbn attention af the government of Great Brltata (e tbe allégation, and request said govern ment to join tbe United States la tbe ap pointment of a commission to consist of three persuns.ooe to be appointed by tbe United oute», oue by Great Britain, and one by the two governments joonjulnlly, to fully investigate all questions of fhiae and fraudulent proofs and doeomante of every kind and nature, and moke a report of such investigation, with the proofs adduced and tha ooaolneiooe thereon to tbeir respective go vernmeau. There ie some mystery ebon! ibis charge of fraud in the Canadian statis tics, if Mr. Hind's statements are oor rect there ia no doubt that tba statistics were cooked, but it is asserted here that thane statistics and tables were not b» fere tbe commission and formed do ground tor the award; that, ha faot, wbetber they were cooked or oortaol, they had no part In Influencing tbe award, and that whatever may bo prov ed In regard to them will therefore be ef no coneequenoe so far as upsetting the award goes.
