ItcIn a few d: ys the Congress
of the United States will :issenable
to consider the weighty matters'
which will press themselvus on the
copsideration of Senators and Re
presentatives. The first bill on the
Senate calendar is said to be Mr.
Sumner's supplementary "Civiil
i Rights Bill," which was introduced
by him on the 9th of March last.
'This bill dcclarces that all citiz:ens
of the United States, without dis- I
Stinction to race, color, etc., are en
titled to the equal and impartial
enjoyment of any accommodation,
!advansutage, priority, or privilege,

into consideration, the. setveaIh mat-,
ters referred to in the recent mes
sage of Mayor Flanders to the City
Counoil, a copy of which was sub-.
mitted to the Asseociation by the
Mayor.
If we may judge of the probable
tone of the proceedings, by the
tenor of the articles in a portion of
the city press on the subject, there
is little room to hope, that, however
much room there might be for im
pirovement, reformation and re
trenchment, the association will ef
fect much if the method- of strict
inve ;tigstioa and impartial inquiry
is to be lost sight of in preju.lieed
r presentations and virulent de
nunciations as a condition pre
codent.
"After the city, after the State!"
may snit admirably on certain oc
casions; but the unthinking head
long pursuit such a "War cry" soli
cits anti encourages, is scarcely re-:
concilable with the alhnness, judg
meat, and delib.r.tion which earn
est business men.invest ii scrutinies
of this description.
There are doubtless many im
Sporta t "reforms" which might be
introduced in the management of
the a'firs of the city, and we hope
that the "Citizens' Association" who
are as much interested as "any 4
other man," will display more of
the qualities of both head and heart
than have recently distinguished
the "citizens' meetings" we have
witnessed in the city.

a series of severe aftlictions in the
death of no less than five children
in less than as many months. The
i ryon" rightly says:
SA profound sympLathy is feIt in
our entire community with the
siorely afflicted family of Judge
Charles Leaumont Some three
nronths ago he lost a son, and on
lTuesday, the 22d, a boy baby, 20
months old, died; on Saturday, the
25th, a boy, four and a half years,
and a girl, two years and nine
months, dtied at the same hour; and
yesterday, a son, of eleven years,
was lost to the parents.
And yet in all this accumulation
of sorrow no suspicion of "doing"
prevails.
"rThe Trre.4,ne Patriot, of No

of the r.svctive status which it
thinks somei of the members of the
Senate occulpy with reference to the
Lieutenant. Governorship to be

James Dunn," says, in relation to
the use of Governor Warmoth's
-piege, by. the family ,of the late
IhAieimant Goverior, on the day of
the funeral:
"It was with no small indignation
that the f4mily learned that they
had occupied Warnetth's vehicle,
and we are authorized to state that,
l-it beei iieowhn,le carrags ,W6ould
not have been ne~i."
Struck with the heartlessness of
the statements, and believing that
there was not a particle of truth in
them, we excused oar intrusion on
the grief-stricken widow, and as.
certained that "the family" made no
such remarks. and were too deeply
absorbed in their overwhelming
sorrow to say "anything about the
Governor's carriage."
The Kdo,.on,! ReplatWin will per
haps submit the source whence it
was "authorized to state" rouss
an error.
&'-With reference to the above
the public may now perceive to
what d(esprate straits these mcn
are driven, to mannuf eture unpopl

Theae chanuges in the city gov
erumwlnt have been very alppropri
ately followed or accompanied by
the resigna! ion of Collector Murphy,
which he has at last had the decency
to send in, and which the President
has accepted with profnuse expres
r ions of esteem and coufidence,
which, peorh ps, he owes Murphy,
but which it would, have been well
for li own reputation. if Ih: had
refrained fem offering. There can
be no doubt that Murphy was ap
I pointed in order that he might do
ia certain kind of work in the Cus
tomhoase, atd there is no doubt
that he did it; but that work was.
menot the prompt, careful, and Lonest
edllectionuu of the revenue. We know
'of one ease, at least, in which, just
after taking utlice, he confess.otdWo
a merchant of this city--who wont
to himl to intercede for ant upriglhtI
and edicient officer of long standing i
whom he-w:a di iumising - that ho;
(JlMurphy) wais put there to "r::ua"

trests of the'party, ured tha.t his
meant to, do it., a:l that, although
lie acknowk dged the truth uo all
that was said in fnvor of the gentle
miun in question, he would hiv. to
., as hi.. place \:as needed fur a
r:tioe "u"ful'" man. It was Lbecause
it was this kind of service that the:
('.)ectr was expecte.l to reader
that a man of Murphy's e:as. was
s lIc',dd for the plhc,, nail that ,.lass
ine'l itds, in this city, Tweed, Con
nolly, Hugh Sniith, Swceuy, :aid
the like. Some of its memniers ale
epulliamne, ther6 Democrats; mul
have some nomlnal calling, and all
"'pcculate" in ( ity Ieal estate, and I
know a gcod deal about it, as Mnr
pli y says he( does; but they all man.
.ate to help (Iheir speculations by a
Ittle "politics."
The amount of Murphy's co:le
tions at the Custoumnhou,e, an;l the
cost per cent., have lh'en sent on
from Washingten as a s art of lurt
ing touch of whitewash, but we
warn the reader that these fig!ures
.rove nothing and reveal nothing.
What we need to know fir~t is how)
much miqht be collected, and at
what cost, by an efficient abusiness i
man; haxing got this, we should be
iu a position to, judge of Murphy's
edictiency, or that of any.politician
who takes his place. We believe
Sthe genral opinion of the mercan
tile community here is that the
C. stomhouse was never worse man
::ged than under his sway. To his
jsuccesasor, Mr. Arthur, we know of
*only two objections-that he is a
lawyer and not a merchant, and
that he is ad haa lbwn a warm
friend and supporter of lMurphy,
and an active politician of the same
*wing of the Rtepublican palrty.
Personally, he is a gentietnal and
a man of education, but the fad
that he is a prominent maeramber of
"the Customhouse faction" forbls
the hope that he will take the Cae
tomhouse out of politics r imetitute
sny real reform. It is for the people

who take pl:aces of trust, and being

their offices and bring reiroach on
