In a lew weeks the voters of Portland will be called, upon .to select a uew city govern ment. The electiou, coiping a seek before the Mew Hampshire election, in a presidential year, will naturally excite a good deal of inter est as an Indication of the set of the popular current , and it may easily happen In the excite ment of the canvass that its real importance may be overlooked and its relative signifi cance absorb more attention than really be longs to it. The actual business of a munici pal electiou, as we all know well enough now, seven weeks before the appointed time, la simply to select a committee of our fellow citizens, called a council, with the mayor tor chairman^ te manage tor us during the com ing year these matters of business which con cern us as a community. What a man thinks about negro suffrage Is realty of no account in this ease; what he thinks about a water supply is the vital mailer. What a candi date thlDM about taxation of national securi ties is not of the least consequence; but his opinion of the utility of tin, city sinking fund, or the disposal of the annual appropriations, may be of very considerable consequence. Nevertheless we mast take thing* as they are. The two parties are organized and will present two-sets ot candidates. Other things being equal, veters who are accustomed to act together on national Issues will prefer to act together on these-Jeeal questions. If the Republican candidates should be men better fitted than their Democratic opponents to command the respect and confidence of their fellow Icillzcna, of course they should be elected. If they are equally well fitted, Re publican voters will prefer them. We must have good nominations. The only ser vice a party organization can render to the public is to furnish good and trusty public servants, and when it toils to do that it hat no longer any excuse for prolonging its Ex istence. What we want of a eity government toy some years to come Is first of all a wise econ omy. Our corporate expense* since the fire haw necessarily been Very large. The war left us, in spite of the judicious management under Mayor MeLJel Ian’s administration, with a debt of about a million dollars. Then came the fire of 1866, which destroyed half amlillon dollars worth of city property In a single night. The energy of the eity government has near ly obliterated the signs ol that disaster. The City Hall, the pride and ornament of the city, has been restore)!. The schools have hardly been interrupted; temporary building* were required for their accommodation, and the new sehocl house on Congress street is an honor to the city. Our Democratic friends have already shown that they know how to appreciate the little common which has been laid out between Congress and federal streets. All these expenditures have been for the public benefit, and were demanded by the public; they were unavoidable, bat they have been heavy. It is time now for a rigid econ omy. All the liabilities of tbe eity are provid ed for by funds set apart for the pur pose, and can be easily met as they ma ture. The current expenses are all that tbe city government should "now as sume, and they should be reduced to the low est practicable figures. We need a supply of pure water, and that we are hi a fair way to get without costing the city, In its corporate capacity, a dollar. Tbe streets must be kept in good repair, but this is not afhvorable time tor opening new streets to accommodate a prospective influx of new business. The health of the community requires a perfect system ot drains and sewers, but there is no need of opening new sewers through unoccu pied lots. The harbor must not be neglected, but a moderate annual expenditure for dredg ing and a prudent Care in authorizing any in terference with the waters of Fore river and Back Cove, will preserve !t unimpaired. In short, we want a teal and not a false economy—a city government that will do everything which the Immediate welfare of the city requires and willolstinately postpone every proposition which will bear postpone ment. We want men in the codfefl who are accuitomed to tbe details of business, who know the valye of a thousand dollars, who are acquainted with the needs of the eity and can distinguish between those projects which can wait and those whieh are of pressing im portance. We want and must have tbe ser vices of men who do not want the offices. Tbe men who do want them are not, as a rule, the men whom the people want. The men who will perform these duties best are those who would be glad to avoid new respon sibilities, hut who, If they accept them, will do faithfully all they undemake. No man has any legitimate claim to a public offiee, nor has any public-spirited citizen a right to de cline, when invited by his fellow citizens, a service which he can possibly render. To secure the nomination of our best men, tbe caucuses should be so conducted as to leave no room for suspicion of underhanded management. Full and early notice should be given. The business should not be done in fifteen minutes by the few who happen to be present at the appointed time. Let the ward rooms be kept open for a certain time, specified in the notification, so that all who desire may take part !u the choice of candi dates. In this way w« may get a foil express ion of the wishes of voters. Give us good nominations and time euough to (consider and compare them, and there can be no doubt of the result. It would be well too, if tbe City Committee should before long provide some head quarters, where Republicans may meet and exchange opinions. We want not only a good city government next year, but a good State government, and a good President of the United States, and it is time to adopt all means which tend to promote a good un derstanding in the parly. Dominion of Canada. THE ORA.>D TJIU.NK BAII.WAT. A recently published report on the affairs of the Grand Trunk Bailway of Canada has excited much attention, and called forth some spirited comment from the press of that coun try. The English Board of Directors employed Captain Tyler, B. E, an inspector of lailway3 connected with tbeTmperial Board of Trade, to come to Canada for the purpose of in specting the road and reporting upon Its con dition, and npon some questions affecting its traffic. The report of Captain Tyler is elab orate and comprehensive, and very sanguine in tone; but its revelations of the financial condition of the road, and its estimates for needed expenditures in the future have ex cited alarm aud displeasure. The report puts down the sum now wanted to put the road on a proper paying basis, at £800,000, which is to be applied to the purchase of rolling stock, the erection of buildings, and for vari ous improvements. The largest item is for, a bridge across the Niagara river at Buffalo and a connecting track aronnd that city, which Captain Tyler thinks ought to be built, and which he estimates to eost £250,000. If it were proposed that these large sums should be raised by the Grand Trunk Compa ny themselves, no one would think of object ing to their expenditure of whatever amount they might choose to lay out, but it is not pretended that they ean do anything of the kind. It is the Government and people of Canada who are asked to furnish this little sum of four and a half millions of dollars to a concern which has already swallowed up such vast amounts of the public money. To show our readers something of the spirit in which this new proposition of the Grsml Trunk Company is received, we quote from an article on the subject in a recent issue of the Toron to Globe: The Grand Trunk Company—like man himself—“never is, but always to be blessed.” Every two or three years wie have an elabor ate report Irora somebody showing that if the company caw only ralie bah a million or »o. and expend It in improving the road, thp troubles of the concern will be over, and the road will become prosperous. Two or three times the required sum has been raised and spept—preference bondholders have' given up their precedence for the sake of raising the money—and still we bear aga>n that the great requisite is more expenditure on capital ac count. This announcement that the Grand Trunk wants another donation from the people of Canada, is the most preposterous thing we have reen in a long time. It Is utterly out of the question, at a time when we are about to spend four millions sterling or mote upon a new railway, that we can undertake to give nearly another million to a railway already In existence, which was built In good part by Canadian money. The Grand Trunk has no shadow of claim upou the Canadian people for further aid. It is not managed with refer ence to the interests of the Province, but with a view to the interests of the stockholders and bondholders. We get nothing from the com pany for which we no not give au equivalent. Its traffic arranaemeuts do not. even give its Canadian customers fair play as compared with foreigners. The through traffic Is court ed at the expense of the local, and curried at low rate#, while our own people pay high ones. Besides that, tbs Grand Trunk is, and always has been, used as a political en ! glne. It interferes regularly la etery Parlia mentary election in which it can exercise the smallest influence; and sometimes It is found meddling in municipal contests. It has re peatedly tampered with the independent!# of Parliament, and to this hour makes special contracts with political favorites. Even if the management of the railway were neu tral between the contending political parties, and its policy were thoroughly Canadian and thoroughly fair as between different parts of the country, it would have no shadow of claim to a further grant from the Canadian treasury. But, under the actual circum stances of the ease, we can only express out astonishment at the assurance which enables the Grand Trunk to make demand of nearly a million sterling from this country. The utter unreasonableness of this demand warrants us in the belief, thaf subservi ent to the Grand Trunk as so many of our politicians are, they will not yield to this last . preposterous request. We know that the i Macdonalds, Cartiers, and Boses, of Canadi an politics, have never refused the Grand Trunk anything; but we believe that they will not dare ask Parliament to give the ' Company the large donation if is now ask ing. The country has loaned its minions to 1 the Grand Trunk already. We have put these loans behind the ordinary stock of the company, and have paid miliions mere in in louts. The Government lien is, and lias been, utterly worthless,and the company may have a present of it any day. But It la Idle tor it to ask for more money from Canada. the Globe, while treating this new demand as preposterous, yet finds In it something alarming, because tbe Canadian Government is In so unsound a financial condition, Is so “perpetually borrowing money and devising schemes for staving off its floating debts," as to put it in the power of English capitalists, In case It should decline to accede to their wishes in this matter, to seriously embarrass it In the English market, or eveu to coerce it to their will. The Globe suggests that “if our Government should attempt to borrow up .n its own credit—as it took authority to do, in order to get another pillion for the Intercolo nial Railway—nothing would be easier than for the Glyus and the Barings to refiise their aid In selling our bonds, except upon condi tions that the Grand Truuk should get the nine hundred thousand for which it Is ask ing;" and it finds in this demand a new argu ment for greater eebuomy. Mr. Goldwln Smith’s recently published let ( ter ou Confederation has as might have been expected, called out the bitter reeentment of the Canadians who are yet in love with tbe plan of tbe “new nationality.'’ A Toronto paper relieves its feelings in tbe ib’lowing Mousing fashion: We are very happy to learn that Mr. Gcld win Smith has resolved to take up bis abode in tbe United States. Mr. Smith naturally belongs to our neighbours in bis preaeut tem i per. If he is seut to Congress, he may pre uaps change his views, ana wish he were back in bis chair at Oxford. But In the meantime, 1 he thinks American Republicanism tbe high est development of the human mind, and the best thing for him is a prolonged stay at Washington. He will have liis eyes opened, and the Colonies will no longer be exposed to his attacks. He is an able man, and his writ ings had a tendency to weaken the tie be tween the Colonies' and the Mother country, although no efforts of him or of his school could sever it entirely. When Mr. Smith has been a'year or two in the SUtes, he will un dersand, that which is inexplicable to him at present, why Canada prefers the connection with Britain to annexation to the United States.

The men who have done most in this branch of business in the past, are men af capital and capable of employing the best of workmen and fitting for sea the finest vessels; but they find it more profitable to invest their mousy in other way*.

Dennett. * Important Cases.—Rumors having been circulated that the Supreme Court is on Che point of declaring the reconstruction sot* un constitutional, the following from the special Washington correspondence of the Boston Advertiser will be found of interest: There are so many wild sensational stories afloat about the Snprema Court and the re construction acts, that it seems impossible to make a careful statement more in detail than anv that has yet appeared. The eotton case was argued Friday, and will probablv be de cided some time next month. The decision may perhaps touch upon one or two points of the Congressional pofiey, but whatevor it be, it cannot affect the general scope of the re construction laws. Tha West Virginia case cannot be reached for two or three months add it is not yet possible to tell exactly what issue it will present. The other case of the three Is docketed as ex parte in the matter of William McCardle. It comes up from Mis sissippi on the refusal of the district judge to grant a writ of habeas eorpvs for the reason that the reconstruction act prevented. Its present position on the docket is such that It cannot be reached under two years. Judge Black filed a motion la o weeks ago to living it forward and set an early day for its bearing, and to-day was fixed <br taking up this motion. At the appointed time Judge Black called it to the attention of the oourt, when the Attorney-General asked that the question bo postponed until the arrival of cer tain interested parties from Mississippi, and it was accordingly put orer. These persons are expected in the course of ten days, and when they arrive Judge Black s-yi he w 11 agsla ask the court to hear him iu support of his motion to bring the case forward. He expresses confi dence that the court will grant his proposition and name some day next month for nearing the case. Eminent lawyers in Congress be lieve his motion will be refused. If it is refus ed that end* the matter so far as this term is ooneerned. If it is granted and a day next month fixed for hearing the argument, the deci sion even then may not be made until March. This ease squarely involves thr constitutional ity of the reconstruction laws. The first question, however, is: Will the oonrt bring it forward so that it can be heard this term? and a* already stated, leading senators do not be lieve this will be done. General Grant as the head of the army is interested in the ease, be cause McCardle was arrested by the military authorities, and it is presumed that be will be represented by counsel, and poasibly by some one beside the Attorney-Ueneral. It may further bo stated as pertinent to this matter ihat the House committee baa instruct- j ed its chairman to bring forward and press to ] a vote lb* bill greed to by the committee last spring, which in a word provides that no law of Congress can be declared unconstitutional ex cept ov the concurring opinion of two-thirds ot the Indge* on the supreme bench.
