•HYBHAL MORE BILLS APPROVED ST
THE CITT COUNCIL.
City Counoil held an adjourned
sion, last eveuing, for tbe purpose
passing upon several matter» of legiela
presented by the Legislative Com
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
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

empted to be in tracts of bve acres or
less. The bill was approved.
Another bill was presented and ap
proved, authorising tbe Council to va
cate the north sidewalk of Water
street, from French to Poplar, for the
purpose of allowing the P. W. & B. B.
it. Co. to erect a new depot.

improvementof the water works. Also,
wheu water rights ere offered for sale,

ihiida of ail the membeia of Couucil,
and issue promissory notes for certifi
cates of indebtedness, payable in one,
two, three and four years, iu payoseut
of the same.

telegraph and téléphoné poles and pro
viding that in case of a refusal to pay
such a tax, the poles may be taken
down by tbo city's authoruy, and tbe
taxes aud oolluotsd by auit, waa also

ably known iu tbis city, died sud
denly on Saturday last at the rest
deuce of bis broiuer-iu-law, iu Sal

was fatty degeueraliou of the heart.

but was prevented from so doiug by
his sudden and unexpected death.—
The deceased was a very prominent

A case of supreme impudence occurred
at tbe police statlou tbia morning during

arrested by officer Thomas between
and two o'clock. Tbe young man was
accoinpauied by a man named Francis
P. Smith, who wss present at the young
man's bearing before tbe Mayor. Dur
ing the whole trial he was inclined to be
impudent toward tbe wiioeea. 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
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." At »his ssser
liou lorbearance ceased to be a virtue,
and the Mayor required the impudent

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
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
Rev. Dr. J. H. Mcllvane, Rev. Wm.

When Congressman Daggett was in

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

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
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

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. It seems that he had for some
time been endeavoring to secure a po
sition iu the department.
SENATOR WALLACE RENOMIN
Harrisburg, Pa., Jauuary 17. —Of
tbe uiuety-three Democratic members of
tbe Peuusylvauia Senate and House
eighty-five were in the caucus lo-night.
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.

Mr. Nawberry of Mioblgaa, lnlrod ne
ed in tbe House to-day a Joint reselatton
to provide for a joint commission of
three persona to examine Into th* alleg
ed fraud iu tbe Halifax fishery award.—
Oue of tbe Commissioners is to be ap
pointed by tbe United (Mates, one by
Great Britain and the third by tbe two
countries. 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. There ie raason to believe,
also, that tbe State Department has eer
renponded on tbe subject with tha British
government and that tba English aie
expected to lake tba initiative in aa In
