TQE SELECTIO.t OF JUDGES, There has been for several years consider able dissatisfaction with the mode of select ing Judges which prevails in' this State. The agitation of the subject resulted in two pro-; posed amendments to the constitution which were passed by the House last year, and last week were referred to the Committee on Con stitutional Amendments. The first of these amendments provides that "Judges of the Supreme Court of Errors and of the Superior Court shall upon nomination of the Governor be appointed by the General Assembly in such manner as shall by law be prescribed." The second makes the same provisions as to Courts of Common Fleas and District Courts. These amendments are supported by the State . Bar Association and a committee of that associa tion will appear before the committee of the General Assembly and present its views. It is argued that it would be a great gain to deprive irresponsible party cauouses of the power to nominate judges and place that power in the hands of the Governor, who would be responsible. There is some force in this on first thought. Under the caucus system the candidates are frequently, perhaps generally, unknown to the majority of those asked to nominate them, and their qualifioa- Ltions must be passed upon without sufficient opportunity for investigation, and without full and free criticism. And there is anoth er serious objection to the nomination of judges by caucuses, and that is that the nom inations are often, not to say always, the re sult of trading. The candidate Who can pull the most wires and pull them the most ef fectively gets the nomination, and aotual merit is substantially lost sight of. That this is true none familiar with .caucuses will deny. Moreover, it is pointed out tbat in ten States judges are ohosen by Governor and Council or Governor and . Senate. These States are Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mas sachusetts, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Michigan, Delaware and Maine. In most of these States the courts have a high char acter, and everybody knows how well the Su preme Court of Maine has recently done its diffioult duty. But if it is clear that there ought to be a change, it is not so clear that that change ought to give the nominating power to the Governor. What security is there that a Governor will make better nominations than a caucus ? To be sure,if a Governor makes a nomination that is really bad, the responsibility for it can be brought home to him. But he would have to make a very bad (or some would say a very good) one to be in much danger of getting re buked. The faots in this State show, we be lieve, that the nominations of Governors have certainly not averaged any better than those made by the General Assembly. Friendship and prejudice have their influence even upon Governors, and if a Governor is looking out for a renomination or for some coveted office he is as apt to trade as are the members of a caucus, and to bestow appointments where they will do him the most good rather than npon those most fit for them. Many States, inoluding New York, eleo judges by popular vote. There is considera ble to be said in favor of this method. Per haps there is no more probability that an un fit nomination will be made by a popular caucus than by a Legislative caucus, and the merits and demerits of candidates for the votes of the people are apt to be pretty thor oughly discussed by thepress. Then, too, a judge whose oontinuanoe in office depended directly upon the people's votes would natur ally try to make a good reoord. If the people can be trusted to eleot their Governors, why not their judges ? Would they elect poorer judges than those who get on the bench under the present system ? The matter is a very important one and should be fully discussed before any action is taken. If all the future Governors of Con necticut are to be wise, good and independent it may be advisable to give them more ap pointing power, as they would use it for the good of the people. But considering the case as it is actually likely to be, it does not seem that there is anything to be gained by the proposed change.

It is cheering to learn that long-haiied men do not attend the woman suffrage gatherings in Washington in such numbers as they form erly did. The sooner the women get entirely rid of them the better for their "cause." It is expected that the case of Fitz John Porter will be acted on in the Senate commit tee to-day. General Garfield has prepared a speech with special reference to vindicating the court which sentenced Porter, and some thing interesting is promised. The prosperity of the country and other causes are having their effect in England in a revival of business and an advance in prices. The improvement was first noticeable in the iron trade, whioh was affected by the large orders received from the United States. Wool has gone up 30 to 40 per cent, and the finer grades 15 to 20 per cent. Freights from In dia have doubled in the last quarter, and Aus tralian freights have increased one-half. While the larger railroad lines show on the whole a decrease in their net earnings for the year 1879, there are signs on the London Stock Exchange that a great speculative move ment in railroad and other securities is to fol low the advance in the market quotations of the great staples. The suits arising from the destruction of property in the riots at Pittsburg have been a souroe of controversy throughout the State of Pennsylvania for some months past. The main trouble was against the Pennsylvania Bailroad Company, in whose burned depots an immense amount of merchandise was de stroyed. A test suit was made to ascertain the responsibility, and Judge MoKenman, of the United States Court, has just delivered an opinion in the case that the railroad company was not guilty of any negligence impairing the efficiency of the exception printed on its bills of lading, and that the plaintiff is not entitled to recover. The exoeption referred to ex cepted the liability of the railroad company for freight lost by fire. This decision and opinion is of interest not only in Pennsylvania, but throughout the country, as establishing a precedent for circumstances which, happily, are very rare. According to Le Pelerin, an Ultramontane periodical, enjoying a large circulation in or thodox French circles, and lay ing claim to derive its information npon religious subjects from al together exolusive souroes,Pius IX., upon enter ing Paradise shortly after his demise, was there received with somewhat exoeptionaThonora. The account of his reception purports to be the faithful reproduction of a communication "re ceived from the highest authority.'' ' It is as folio wb : "When Flo Nono entered Paradise he al onoe obtained a crown from the hand of the Immaculate Virgin, as a reward for the crown whioh he had bestowed upon her during his sojourn upon earth.. St. Joseph, whom he had made patron and protector of the Church, shook him heartily by the hand and thanked him. Then St. Peter gave out the key in whioh the hymn of Welcome was to be sung, and the celestial choir chanted it, while Fran cis de Sales and Alphonso . Liguori, whom he had formerly proclaimed teachers of . the Church, alternately recited in laudatory terms the deeds and achievements of his Pontificate Fifty-two saints and twenty-six of the blessed, all of whom owe their present position to Pius IX., greeted him with harmonious choruses. A writer in Fraser's Magazine discusses the cost and results of strikes in an interesting manner. He estimates that the engineers' strike, which began in February last and con tinued about thirty-three weeks, caused a loss of $70,000 to the strikers. The average num. ber of men out of employment during this time was 500. If no strike had taken place, their wages would have amounted to $144,000. But they received from society funds about $74,000, reducing their personal loss to $70, 000. Of notable strikes that have taken place within the last two years, that of the London masons, whioh lasted thirty-three weeks and threw 1,700 men out of employment, oost the strikers about $130,000. The carpenters' strike In Manchester involved about the same number of men, and cost nearly as much. The strike and lock-out of the boiler-makers and iron ship builders on the Clyde oost the society upward of $65,000, the estimated loss es being $1,500,000. The losses of the miners in the Durham strike are estimated at $1,200, 000. In the above strikes, excepting that of the engineers first mentioned, the strikers suf fared disastrous defeats. While strikes are exceedingly expensive luxuries to the men, even when successful, the writer above cited maintains that the number of strikes from which the employes reap no advantage are ex tremely few, as compared with those from which they derive some benefit, proximate or remote. In illustration of what is sometimes gained by the strikers, he oites the builder' strike and look-out in London in 1859. About 21,000 men quit work, but many of these ob tained employment elsewhere. ' The number engaged in the struggle was from 6,000 to 10,000. The whole number interested in the result of the contest was between 40,000 and 50,000. After spending upward of $250,000, besides the loss in wages, the men were com pelled to yield. But they gained the Saturday half holiday, which is now enjoyed by not fewer than 100,000 building operatives. This is computed to be a gain to the men of about $2,800,000 a year, "if not in money, at least in-money's worth." The writer claims that the employes get over their losses much more speedily than their employers. With the form er, he says, it is a matter of temporary in convenience, or, at most, of present suffering only ; with the latter it means, not merely a derangement of business for the time being, but in many oases future embarrassment, if not failure.

To the Editor of the Joubnal and Coijkikk : Please allow us to say a few words on a po litical topic, one that concerns the larger and better half of oar citizens, and therefore ap propriate to the columns of your paper. To the friends of woman suffrage the political events in Maine for the last few weeks afford a sufficient answer to a very popular objection to woman suffrage. It is said, "Woman can not fight, therefore she ought not to vote." The objeotion is made to assume the follow ing shape by Francis Parkman in the North American Be view for January, that is, "If a law was passed by a majority chiefly women, the minority being men, they would resist it, being phvsioalty the strongest." An almost impossible case, the interest of men and wo men being so identical. Now in Maine a mi nority perpetrated an outrageous fraud. The majority were conscious of their superior strength in the State, and the adjacent States, and . that the whole military power of the Union was in the hands of a Bepublican President. And yet the loaders of both these great parties warn and caution against any resort to physical force. They fear the moral sense of the people. Mr. Parkman's argument is this, "Tbat this Gov ernment is sustained by physical foroe, and that men in the aggregate only have this, and therefore they only, and not women, have the right to vote." In reply, we would say that that Government is the strongest which relies the least npon its physical element, whose strength comes not from these brute foroe arguments, drawn from the basilar re gions of the brain, but from lessons taught from the pulpit, press and rostrum. Another objeotion of Mr. Parkman is this : That as women do not write npon political economy, silver bill, finanoe, etc, they ought not to vote. Are there not subjects rpon which women only oan write well that need legislation quite as much as dollars and cents. It is said that women do not want to vote. Why not ? Because hitherto the "keen shafts of wit have dug the grave of every feminine mind thai has dared to express" a wish to vote. There are a good many men who do not want to vote. It is stated on good au thority that in Philadelphia there were over thirty-four thousand men whose taxes (only fifty cents each) were paid by the Bepublican and Democratic executive committees so that they could vote. We believe tbat as in the past, so in the future, work and agita tion will be necessary to arouse the pat riotism of both men and women each to vote on those questions that specially interest them, and herein lies the educational power of the ballot. Women are certain for tem perance, and will also pass judgment on the moral fitness of candidates for every office. On the subject of temperance we may add that Miss Fraooea Willard, who was reoently elected president of the Woman's National Temperance Union in the place of Miss Annie Wittenmyer, is a strong advocate of woman's voting, while Mrs. Wittenmyer has Bteadily opposed it. This indicates in a decided man ner the growth of the suffrage sentiment in that organization. There are other fallacies of Mr. Parkman that we might notice, but the above objections to woman suffrage that we have briefly touched are the most prominent and popular ones. ' B. Tbe Went worth Fletcher Disengage. ; mettU f om the Parisian. Our Boman correspondent has already men tioned that an engagement of marriage be tween an English lord and an American girl had been suddenly broken, and that there is strong indignation against the man who has thus wantonly destroyed the happiness and future of a young girl whose brave and cour ageous career has commanded tbe admiration of strangers. The gentleman is Lord Wentworth, a grand son of Lord Byron, and the young lady Mies Fletcher, author of "Kismet," and well known by her nom de plume of "Gaorga Fleming." The correspondent of the Anglo-American says Miss Fletcher is very ill. "It ia fortunate for Lord Wentworth," he continues, "that Miss Fletcher is not English or in England, or there might be a'breach of promise' case tbat would amuse the two worlds for some little time. In the meantime the poor girl's health has suffered intensely, and I hear tbat all her beautiful hair is cut off 1 Miss Fletcher had many enemies, and these were very envious of her evident good fortune in having so great a prize within her hands. They did not rest until they had wrenched it from her. But it is a general surprise that Lord Went worth, as an Englishman and a man of mature age, was not firm enough to resist all the ar rows flung at him, Very different from another English noble man I oould name, who, when engaged to an un&ristQoratio lady, was asked, "Do you know that her first husband is not yet dead ?" "If she had twenty husbands living," he an swered, "I should be happy to be the twenty first." And they were married, nor did he ever repent of his firmness. Governor Andrews' Appointments. Hartford Correspondence Springfield Bepublican. Governor Andrews seems to think that, if he oan only prove that he "moves in a myste rious way," the people of Connecticut will supply the rest of the syllogism and worship him. His surprise party that gave us Prof. Walker for railroad commissioner did elevate him a good deal. But when he puts Senator Bill Hayward into Walker's shoes it is, though no less mysterious, decidedly less to h s credit. The intimation in this correspondence, a week ago yesterday, that Hayward might be the man was laughed at by the Governor's best friends, who said it must be intended for a joke. He seems to have made it a practical one. The explanation offered now for the act is that, office-seekers having- threatened and bully-ragged the little Governor till he really became afraid he wouldn't be renomi nated, he settled it and them by giving the plaoe to what he considered an influential politician, and that Litchfield and Colohester have locked arms across the Connecticut riv er. Leaving out any consideration of Hay ward's personal fitness for the plaoe, there are other obstacles whioh should have pre vented the nomination. For instanoe, he was direotor and president of the Colohester rail road, and direotor of the Air Line, and is so in the new railroad report issued to-day. The law forbids any railroad stockholder from being a commissioner, but tbe Hart ford Post says Hayward was not a stock holder, and only held these directorships as "honorary offioss." It is anew idea that a man can be a direotor and not be a stockholder, but I find nothing in the general railroad law to prevent, so that really the resignation of the directorship was superfluous. Connecti cut sentiment as to the railroad board has al ways been divided. Bailroad people contend ed that it was a nuisance ; part of "the peo ple" considered it a superfluity, and the other part thought it better to abolish it than to continue it as an asylum for political veter ans, which used to be its purpose. Of late years something has spurred Commissioner George M. Woodruff up to giving us very good reports, and a sentiment in favor of continuing the board, with the hope that it might prove good for something, has been rapidly spreading. It looks to me now as if this was the time to change it from three members to one member. If it is to ravert to its asylum functions, it might better disap pear altogether. iTIrs. Spragne's Dinner to 3Irs.Conktinar, One of the Washington papers gives the following piece of "society news : "One of the handsomest entertainments imaginable, being perfect in its minutest details, was the little dinner given by Mrs. Kate Chase Sprague on Wednesday evening last to hsr friend, Mrs. Boscoe Conkling, who is visiting there. The cosy home on Connecticut ave nue whioh Mrs. Sprague has ocenpied since leaving EJgewood is arranged with such ar tistic skill and on this oocasion was so beauti fied by flowers that upon entering the bril liantly lighted saloon from the gloomy streets outside it looked like fairy land, and the illu sion was not dispelled as its presiding spirit, radiant in white camels' hair and diamonds, advanced to welcome the favored guest. The table with its flowers and favors was a work of art, everything being designed, from decora tions to dessert, by the hostess. On the oentre of the table lay au oval mirror in its tank of flowers, looking like a miniature lake upon whose bosom appeared to float a huge swan with a back load of fragrant blossoms. At each plate besides the customary bouquets were exquisite trifles, such as for instance a crimson satin slipper with gilded French heel and chenielle bordered top, a bow of hand some satin ribbon on the toe and long loops and bow of the same to carry it on the arm as a satchel, and the shoe filled with gorgeous Marshal Niel rosebuds. Another was a choco late cake wrapped in its silver paper, upon which pranoed a silver goat drawing a minia ture basket of fruits. Trailing vines sus pended from the chandeliers and pyramids of fruits and flowers completed tbe adornments. Mrs. Conkling looked very lovely in black velvet, with trimming of white laoe and ornaments of pearls. Mrs. Hamilton Smith wore a rich black velvet costume with black lace garniture; ornaments, amethysts and violets. Mrs. Conkling's trophy was a shepherd's hat of satin filled with roses, whioh were held in place by a silver dart. Mrs. Smith's a long Turkish pipe of crimson satin, the immense bowl being filled with buds. There were but eight in the party including the beautiful hostess." Dlastangs InTezas Xhlrtv Years Ago, From the Texas Mute Bangers. The word mustang is a corruption of mes ttno, the Mexican name for a wild horse. Many years ago there were thousands, no doubt millions, of those animals in Texas. In 1849, and for several years thereafter, they were numerous in the region between the Nueces river and the Bio Grande. They were found further north, but not in such numbers.. Immense herds of wild horses could be seen grazing on the prairies. When they saw any one approaching the leader would often move to the front and make a reconnoissanee. If things did not suit him, he would give his head a peculiar toss, wheel, and sound the note of alarm. These demonstrations would be followed by prompt movement on the part of the herd, sometimes to the front, but more usually to the rear. They would wheel into line, ohange front, move in line or in column with as much precision and order as cavalry. It was wonderful to witness how well they were drilled and disciplined. In the event a retreat was ordered the leader would move in the rear for a while. If any lagged or strag gled tbey were very apt to feel his teeth, if not his heels. On some occasions a move ment to the front was ordered. It was a charge in line or in column, proudly headed by the leader. This was the case sometimes when mounted men were in sioht. The Texas Bangers operating in that oountry were followed by pack-mules in oharge of a guard. It was necessary at times to form a hollow square, place the mules inside, and to throw out skirmishers to fire into the animals. If the leaders oould be struck, the charge would be broken. The horses would retire at once. - The mustangs were hunted by Mexicans, and the finest ones singled out and lassoed. Whole herds were driven at a run into pens having extended wings, whioh contracted as they approached the gate. As many as five hundred mustangs have been penned at one "run." They were aold at almost nothing, five dollars being a high priee for a choice home. These mustangers were a wild set, often no better than Indians; some of them were honest, good men. They were guilty of many murders and robberies. The Coman ohes marie many visits to that region. They would . pounce npon the mustan gers,. set ' them afoot or kill them, as oaprioa diotated. The Coman ohes wanted the mustangs to ride and eat. ' Horseflesh is s great delicacy with them. The choioa part is the fat immediately under the mane.. The section in question was very not in those days for Americana. A Texan was considered an hereditary enemy by both mus tangers and Indians. His only protection was the rifle and the six shooter and a horse ot strength and bottom.
