Newspapers are gradually getting their rights denned. The Supreme court of the State of . Michigan has just rendered an opinion of much importance concerning the right of newspapers to criticise the doings of courts of justice. The Detroit Post and Tribune having said that a police justice of that city had fixed bail in a certain case at an unreasonable amount and commented otherwise unfavorably, was sued by the jus tice for libel and defeated in the lower court. The Supreme court reversed the decision. Chief Justice Cooley,, delivering the opinion, calls attention to the vital importance of keeping public attention constantly directed upon the conduct of courts of justice. The! decisions of a police justice he regards as ai matter of grave public concern and the manner in which he discharges the func tions of his office is therefore a perfectly proper subject of newspaper discussion.! Such criticism as that of the Post and Tri bune is declared to be privileged. This decision is encouraging to all who be lieve in a proper freedom of the press. As the Springfield Union well says: It is natural for lawyers and judges, as the special instru ments of justice, to assume a peculiar dig nity, and, doubtless, the average justice of a petty court cannot readily understand why his right to fine an impudent witness for contempt of court should not extend to a caustic journalist. The right and interest of the public in the preservation of its liberties makes the difference. Courts are only means to an end. That end is the maintenance of civil liberty; the upholding of the equal rights of all men within the forms of law and order. There are no more insidious en croachments on thess sacred rights than those that make themselves felt through in competent and corrupt judges. There would be no safety for freemen if the right of the press to criticise judicial proceedings without fear of being called to account were once de nied. Some recent decisions in other States have not been . very encouraging to newspapers which seek to do their best for the communi ties in which they are published. . This is, and we congratulate the Post and Tribune on the successful issue of its attempt to do a good thing. EDITORIAL NOTES. The Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers embraces twelve thousand members. It could make a great deal of trouble, but thus far its power has been exercised very wisely. . The St. Louis papers are now making fun of the Chicago drug stores. They say that half the people who go to them for prescrip tions die before they get them and the other half die after they get them. A contributor to the Science Gossip throws some light upon a very important problem how to avoid being annoyed by the early cackling of the neighbors' fowls. He says that it is a well known fact that no one is troubled by his own fowls; it is always by some one's else. Now, let the people in the adjoining houses own the birds jointly. Then they will hear nobody's bnt their own and forthwith the annoyance will cease. This is truly an ingenious way out of the difficulty. The English government has lately made an expensive mistake by using postage stamps all of one color, which confuse and delay the employes of business firms, as well as the postoffice clerks, who have to bear the cost of an incidental mistake in delivery. The new system has proved anything but the measure of economy it was designed to be. Russian stamps are said to be models for postoffice business, as they are attractive, difficult to counterfeit and easily identified. They have a combination of two colors, .- one in the field and the other in the oval escutcheon. Light blue upon gray, green upon red, and yellow upon bine are the prin cipal tints. .. .v..-.-.. Senator-elect Blackburn of Kentucky knows what will please a southern audience. In a speech the other day he said: "They tell you to-day that the proud boast of the Re publican party is that it freed the black man. I answer that when it did it served to enslave the white man. , They tell you they have stricken the shackle from the limbs of the black man. I answer and say . yes, only to rivet that shackle tighter upon the limbs -of tee Anglo-Saxon. They flew in the face of what experience would have taught, and un dertook to make a servile people out or . a race which for 2,000 years had been wont to listen to the clank of chains, but never yet, thank God. has worn them." In the course of his "passionless and unprejudiced' mmh. Mr Blackburn also took occasion to thank God that, amid all her loyally, Ken tucky "grew 47,000 of the finest disloyal sons upon whom the snn of God has ever fallen.'? Mr. John M. Gregory, of the Civil Service commission, finding that there is still a de mand for farther explanation -regarding the rights and duties of federal employes and the Civil Service act, makes the explanation de manded. In substance the law is this: No committee of which a federal official is a member can solicit or receive contributions. No person in the federal service can lawfully pay contributions to such a committee. No committee whatever can solicit or receive contributions in any federal building or of fice, directly or indirectly. No one in the federal service can lawfully help or injure any other person in the service for having given or refusing to give contributions. Any person in the service can give as much or as little as he chooses for political purposes outside his place of employment to any com mittee not embracing a federal official among its members, or to anyone not a member of such a committee. The law recognizes the absolute independence f the federal employe, and protects it. The new French Divorce court has refused to convert a legal separation into a divorce in a case where the petitioner, the husband, was. the party against whom the separation had been pronounced three and a half yeara ago. It was shown that the wife had always conducted herself in an exemplary manner, and the divorce was opposed on her part on the ground that it would enable the husband to marry the woman with whom he had lived since the separation, and so the posi tion and the prospects of the wife and her children would be'prejudiced. In the case of Adelina Patti, now pending, the petition has likewise been presented by the party against whom the separation was decreed, the proceedings for separation having been taken by the Marquis de Caux. According to the divorce law, it is competent for either party, after a legal separation of more than three years, to apply for a divorce, but it seems that the court can refuse it to the par ty against whom the separation has been de creed if it judges right to do so. j Congressman Ranney was request d by a department commander of the Union veteran army to support some of the great pension schemes now before the public, and his reply is well worth attention. He says that there are 1,400,000 surviving veterans of the war who served 60 days and have honorable dis charges; of these 230,000 are already en the pension roll. To give all these men $8 apiece per month, according to the Lovering bill, without regard to their needs, would require $113,000,000 a year. Then there is the "Union veteran army bill," which proposes to give 160 acres of land to every survivor, give graded pensions to those who were in reb el prisons, 103,000 in number, and pay $8.33 1-3 a month to all who served during the war for the time of service, deducting boun ties. This would throw on the market 250, 000,000 acres of land in land warrants which would" depreciate and be bought up by speculators, and, in all, cost beside about $340,000,000. Mr. Ranney says he has not been on the pension committee and has not specially investigated the subject or heard it discussed, and he added: I do not propose to make any promises or pledges which could be construed into a bid for support, or an effort to disarm opposition. As a present member of Congress, likely to be called up on to act at the next session, I can say and do nothing which would interfere with or take away my liberty to vote and act when the time comes, as my more matured judg ment might then dictate or approve. As a candidate for reelection I could not consent to do anything more in matters which are in the nature of aggregated individual claims against the government, and on which, if elected, I should have to pass in judgment in a quasi judicial capacity, than to say4 what ought to go without saying, that I shall approach and deal with the same with the utmost candor, guided by a strong sense of justice and inspired with a spirit of liber ality, and vote as my honest convictions lead me to do at the time.

New York Journal. COMMUNICATION S. Gentleman and Lady. To the Editor of the Journal and Courier: j - "Yer a rale gintilman, sorr," was recently remarked by an employe who had been paid , to his satisfaction. The genuine article would not recognize itself if compared with the character conceived by this ignorant hut kind-hearted savage. In this instance and in ihe estimation of the judge here above- deliv ering his opinion the sum of seventy-five cents given or withheld made or marred the gentleman. This judgment was quite as correct and well founded as many others we daily hear expressed and are obliged to no tice. It is a pity that true men and women en gaged in respectable and honorable labor do not of their own accord and by their own good sense perceive and recognize that newspaper and other talk about "salesgentlemen" and 'saleslady," or the "lady in the kitchen," white or black, are false and unworthy of their self-respect and tend to make them appear ridiculous. If they do not do so, they may rest assured that no assumed ve neer of title or manner can deceive anyone but those as ignorant as themselves of what the titles of gentleman and lady really mean. , With increased education, refinement and experience they may begin to realize the grandeur, natural, social and moral, that at taches to these much abused characters. They may then, perhaps, comprehend how dif&euit it is for any man or woman in the whole world to claim, attain to and rightly sustain such a comprehensive and much embracing title. F- Xlie Addition to tbe North Cnnroh. To the Editor of the Journal and Courier; Several letters and news items having ap peared in the papers adverse to the proposed addition to the North church, it may not be out of place to submit the following consid erations on the other .side of the question: The site on the Green was originally grant ed to the church as one of the idstitutions on which the welfare of the oommunity depend ed, and no definite area was assigned, simply leave given to build an edifice sufficient for the needs of the society. Had the society so wished it might have erected a building twice the size, and no one would have ob jected. The proposed addition to the build ing is only such as is called for by the mod ern requirements of a church, and the socie ty, in taking the ground necessary for that addition, is simply using up, so to speak, the right that was implied in the indefinite ness of the original grant the right to take what was needed for the reasonable requirements of the church. The proposed addition to the North church is therefore not to be considered at all in the same light in which a proposal to erect any new building for any new purpose would naturally be looked at. The church stands where it is, not in virtue of a certain number of square feet of land having been deeded to the society, but because the community was willing that the Second ecclesiastical society of the town should have its meeting house on the com mon green; and it is merely the legitimate carrying out of the spirit of the original concession to allow the so ciety from time to time to make its meeting house conform to the needs of the day. This does not in the slightest de gree open up the question of the right or ad visability of the city's granting land on the Green for any other purpose. It does not create a precedent, as no new title is given in this instance. The three churches on the Green form one of the most attractive features in the beauty of New Haven, giving, as they do, that dis tinctively New England look to our central square which is its greatest charm. But the church edifices can only be maintained if the congregations using them continue to flourish, and one essential condi tion of their prosperity is the possession of such accommodations as are needed for the church life of to-day. The addition pro posed to be made is, according to the archi tect's plans, in admirable keeping with the present building and would enhance its pic turesque effect as an ornament to the Green, while the small portion of ground it would cover is, as it happens, less used and less seen, even, than any other part of the square. W. P. A Sailor on a Sailor's Book. W. Clark Russell in the Contemporary Review. Dana was the first man to look at the sea life as a real thing, and to make the world know it as a real thing.' America should be proud of that triumphant book, "Two Years Before the Mast." We are a greai maritime people; the oceans of the world are our realm, and every billow that rolls from north to south, from east to west, carries a British interest along its liquid path. Is it not won derful that we should have waited for a Yan kee student to show us how to write a book that should be true to the sailor, true to the ship he sails in, trne to the great deep he navigates? For my part, I heartily begrudge Boston her famous "yarner," and for the honor of this country could wish that his grand sea-picture had the nnion-jack hanging over it instead of the eagle that is perched for all time upon its frame. The difference between "Two Years Before the Mast" and most of the nautical novels which have been written on this side the Atlantic is the dif ference between the marine drama as we are accustomed to witness it in London and pro vincial theatres, and the calling it carica tures. Dana's book is a solia tact rrom De- ginning to end not one jot more so because it forms a collection of his experiences when at sea, than because of the superb sailor-like spirit, the exquisite accuracy and the great hearted sympathy that every page is full of. "I vowed," he says, after describing the flog ging on board the Pilgrim "I vowed that if Ged should ever give me the means, I would do something to redress the grievances and relieve the sufferings of that class of beings with whom my lot had so long Deencast." He could not nave irone to work more effect ually than by writing "Two Years Before the Mast." It was time trrac someDoay Bnowea the public down into the merchant ship's forecastle, pointed to the bunks in which the sailors sleep, the dripping callings, the evil smelling slush-lamp, the water splashing through the scuttle, the poor clothes of the heavily worked men, tne intamous looa ana vile water on which they subsisted. It was time, I say. No landsman could guess the truth, and those who had suffered, who could speak of the horrors of scurvy from dark ness and damp and fare such as a hog might disdain, were ignorant and nnaDle to put their story Detore tne worm, xjiu uira comes Dana, a fine genius, full of spirit. He ships as a foremast hand in a. little brig bound round Cape Horn to the western American coast, and he spends three years of his life among sailors, working with them, suffering with them, taking their few poor treasures witn tnem. we are useu iu ma book now, and since his time plenty of inter est has been taken in the merchant service; but I sometimes think that an extraordinary amazement must have been excited among those of the public who cared for sea yarns when "Two Years Before the Mast" was first published. By what magic could Dana ab sorb the attention of his readers by a plain unvarnished narrative of forecastle life in a little brig? "But that was not quite it. How did it happen, I dare say people wanted to know, that these poor sailors who so deeply interested tnem m uana s won were so ut terly unlike the mariners they had been ac customed to read about since the days of Smollett? Where was the Saturday-night larking? where the cans of grog? the "wives and sweethearts?" tne dancing on tne main deck? the gay uniforms, the handsome mid dies, the sea-battles, the lovely heroines, and all the rest of the well-known stuff? Instead of this they found a brutal, coarse-mouthed skipper, a couple of mates neither handsome nor sentimental, and forward an odd collec tion of rude and rough figures in Scotch caps and old shirts. There was no heroine, there was no fighting, there was nothing more spirited in the way of diversion than a fandango at Santa Barbara; but there was the best of all things in this world truth. Because of it the book went straight home to the heart, and inasmuch as that it is as true in the main of life on board ship to-day as it was when written forty-five years ago, there can be no excuse for anyone desiring to write for or against the sailor, not to very fairly understand the nature and duties of Mercantile Jack's life while "Two Years Be fore the Mast" remains in print. Yet let it not be denied that so far as the merchant service is concerned the need of an other Dana grows urgent. Life in a sailing ship remains much as Dana represents it; but steamers are now plentiful; there is more greed than there used to be and more maws to satisfy; competition has resulted in a sor didness that is a permanent menace to human life. Another Dana is wanted to give us three years before the mast, not in one, but in several steamers; in the dangerous "well deck," in the undermanned tank, in the cheap boat that is sent across the Atlantic in winter furnished with engines scarcely pow- erful enough to keep her "head on" in half a gale of wind; in the overloaded craft whose covering board is nearly awash as she sneaks clear of the eye of the board of trade official; in the steamer into whose hold, in the name of dispatch, the cargo has been pitched ready for shifting in the first bit of seaway that is encountered. Another Dana is want ed for the later marine developments of our civilization. Only presuming him to exist, could he be expected to go to sea to learn what he has to write about! I have very little doubt that were Richard Dana, jr., now living, he would own that he would rather face the storms of the two Atlantics and beat round the Horn to the westward in June for several years running in his crazy, little old hundred and fifty ton brig Pilgrim, than make a single experiment in search of cur-' rent nautical experience on board the red and slate-colored drain-pipes which, classed Al and insured above their value as com pounds of brittle plate, cement and rivets adjusted by the ''drift," are daily and hourly hauling out of dock to deliver their cargoes in ports which are very often indeed at the bottom of the sea.

"From agony. "It took three men to hold me on my bed at times! "The doctors tried in vain to relieve me, but to no purpose. Morphine and other opiates! "Had no effect! 'After two months I was given up to die! "When my wife heard a neighbor tell what Hop Bitters had done for her. she at once got and gave me some. The first dose eased my brain and seemed to go hunting through my system for the pain. The second dose eased me so much that I slept two hours, something I had not done for two months. Before I had used live bottles I was well and at work as hard as any man could for over three weeks; but I worked too hard for my strength, and taking a hard cold, I was taken with the most acute and painful rheumatism all through my sys tem that ever was known. I called the doctors again, and after Beveral weeks they left me a cripple on crutches for life, as they said. I met a friend and told him my case, and he aid Hop Bitters had cured him and would cure me. t poohedathim, but he was so earnest I was in duced to try them again. In less than four weeks I threw away my crutches and went to work lightly, and kept on using the bitters for five weeks, until I became as well as any man living, and have been so far, six years since.
