In laet, wo am a prosperoiiH tuition. It is Rood to look upon the, bright side aa well as the dark. The con Ylct.lon Is exultant that we have fhat within oh which no requirements can ever drain, and which no other nation has ever equalled. Americans, geuerally, have been charged with being a boastful people. I'erhaps they are. But they have something to boast of. TLeybave a singularly houurnhlfl and glorious rjsiht which has not yet grown old ; they have resources whose wondrous variety is continu ally evincing Itself; and they cherish institu tions which have withstood invulnerably the shocks of mulice and hale. We lament the time the golden age when we were pros perous and happy; tut it in to bo remembered, amid all the desolation of warfare, our homfr prosperity has been singularly brilliant, and Individual Mictions we justly lo; t sight of in the multiplied Causes ior national rejoicing. 4.. M il A I. WI'.ltH'M roHHWK'ATln The New York World of yesterday puli-li.-lied General Weiiii's communication to the UneJUan Government, on the subject of the aei.ure of the Florida. In commenting upon the document, the 11'oWiZ censures General rii for his imprudence in anticipating tho action of his Government; for his undiplomatic prei ccdit.g in vehemently protesting against the conduct of foreign Towers in according the Hebcls belligerent rights; and lor his in veighing especially against the conduct of Great Britain. To this criticism General VV'i'.iwt has undoubtedly laid himself open by the tenor of bis communication. It romains, however, to be seen whether he has mlscon st rued the sentiinents'of his Government, for If so, whether they cau disclaim the official proceeding of their Envoy Extraordinary and ilinbter Plenipotentiary. General Wkiiii was indiscreet in denouncing the course of foreign Powers, but according to the opinion which we have already expressed on the Florida question, his view of the seizure is that which the Uuited States are bound in honor to admit. Whilst Btrenuously u lintalnlng that the Florida and similar ves ftcls are licensed pirates, ho admits that tho immunity which they enjoyed in other waters uiu.st inhere in them equally in tho waters of iiradl. lie Buys: "Tho uudersigned believes himself to be authorized to assure your Ex that all the reparation which honor ce exact wiU be very freely offered, ce Honey, and justice exact will ai.i much more freely aud promptly than if the act had been committed by an :nerlcan cruiser in the waters of the most powerful nation of the world. But, while making thus reparation, the Government of the United States will offer, without doubt, tho wnende htmornllt under protest. She will day to lira.il that she denies, in tulo, to any untion or nations, us soon as rebellion breaks out in the dominions of any friendly power, and without any examination or Investigation whatever, and without knowing or pretending to know the merits of the contest, the right to declare that the Ilobels constitute a belliger ent pow er, and by means ol a proclamation open to them all the ports of the world on terms equal to those conceded to the nation against which they rebel." This Is the gi.it of Umtcrul Wi'.bu'h communication to the l!ra.'d-an Gov- eriinieut. Injudicious and undiplomatic it certainly is, but tho truth of hU allegations Cnunot be controverted. The subiect of this Imbroglio has been dis cussed from an entirely wrong stand-point. Tin chief arguments which have been adduced &r our course to lira11, arc those derived fiora lleed pivcedenta furnished by the conduct ol England. The article, which we believe to have been erroneously attributed to Mr. S' iinhi, gleans cvid nco almost from thn times of antiquity to prove that England has lepoatodly vli.'iated International law. Even admitting for a moment, what I.s not true, that all the examples In that article are pertinent to tlm question, what are we to Infer? Does I'nglaiid, and England alone, promulgate iiiieruatlonid law ? Is Eimhind tho sole ex pi sitor ol international law? lit her violation. v' it HiilhVieut excuse lor ours? We can understand the intention ot furulsh iii preceUeuU uguiust Eugluud, if it is iu- tended to Insinuate Unit her silence would be more decent and discreet than adjurations to other nations to resK-ct what she disregards, lint If the conclusions drawn from these pre cedents are not Intended li.rthat purpose, they are unavailable for any other. I'idess tion the plea of retaliation, the wrong-doing of another nation cannot be our criterion o" right. Conscience is the only mirror of seli ii'piol)tion. To niialgn Knglaiid doe nut settle the Florida que stion. If we could cite a thousand Instil in es of hit infraction of international law, v herein would we be bcnellteil? The con sail tat ion ot'sucli precedents should but impel us to In' fiiillilul to the prim -s against whose violations we declaim. To soar above the petty Impulse of the hour, to scorn to perpetrate n wrong, should be a great nation's proudest boast. Jl the l liited States sanction the course of General Wkiiii, the heart of cverv citizen should swell with exultation, to feel that the Nation Is too grand to be petty even in a single net. l It 1 AKIiK.rilOl HV.H. It him been the policy of many of our papers to avoid in their editorial columns any refer enee lo mutters cf merely local importanea It is our intention to continue to pursue tiio I leu which we have always adoptc.il, ant when nny question of importance arises, which has Interest for our citiz 'tis, not us Americans, nor us Pennsjlvaiiiai.s, but exclusively as I'hllatlf Iphians, to devote both tlmo and spa.'P to its consideration. Anything which funds to the beautifying or the Improvement of any Institution ol our municipality should be con sidered by our people with an unbiased mind, and bo decided as judgment dictates'. Js'ato.re surprsscu Art in beauty, but among the most beautiful productions of the latter may we rank our City of Drotherly Love. Tlii consideration of any subject tending to the improvcm"ut of our town regulations cannot but bo most Important and Interesting to the t'cneml public. At the las meeting of our ''City Fatli Ts," a bill was introduced nbollshin r the. svstem of portable market stands on v. heuh, in the siiapo of wagons, which now stand backed upagaiust our siilewa'l s. The formal vote on the subject was postponed until Thursdny, when tiie de cision of that body will either remove the niil.-ance, or legalize one of the most objec tionable, customs which ever disgraced a com munity the plan of filling up our broadest and most picturesque thoroughfares with hideous countiy wagons. When the rustics uirive from fheir rural homes, they nppear to labor under the delusion that the crowded streets of adensely populated t jwu werv created especially for the benefit of their ancient carts ; that the sidewalks which cost our people thousands annually to repair w ere paid for in order that their fish, and beef, ami vegetables could assail tho nostrils of the passer-by, and in order that a race of lean canines, eager to become cannibals, which lurked beneath their wagons, should be encouraged by the conti nuid flavor of meat to attack the peacefully disposed man or the helpless child, and spread hydrophobia, like uu epidemic, amidst our people. We therefore call upon the City Councils to do their duty, and ubollsh the nuisance. They need not be alarmed ut the excited shrieks of fishmongers, because six of this race are ''a host in themselves," at least in strength of voice. The great mass of our Intelligent citi zens liivor such an improvement; the health nud beauty of our city demand it; and within a 3'ear even the old Locofocos, who are so In dignant to-day, will rejoice In being able to purchase their marketing iu neat and airy houses erected lor the purpose. It is also demanded as a simple act ot justice. The holders of stalls In the house are obligod to pay rent to the city, while those who stand in the street escape this expense. This is unfair to those who believe in the system of advancement in marketing as well as govern nient. The street incommodcrs uro able to ttnderacU those who Pwfcr the wmmodlou. conveniences of the new bouses. It is there- I . . A 1 t . . , .i I ,.,s. I,. i.n.in ll.l.i foiD necessary, as au act of juutice, to pass this bill ; and when once adopted, the whole com munity will acknowledge ita propriety. THE KXK I HON Ol' MI'I.I.F.R. The cose of Franz Mixi.i-.b, recently exe cuted in England for the murder of a bank clerk named Unions., in a railroad car, has excited much mote than ordinary public Inte rest on both sides of the wuter. The manner in which the crime was committed was ulone fitted to alarm ull persons accustomed to tra veling on I'liglifth railway, where they are shut up iu small compartments, and deprived of ull means of escape or rescue In the event of personal danger, llesides this, the whole olVulr was invested witli singular mystery, from the beginning unto the end; and there I lire many Intelligent minds that even how, notwithstanding the late and laconic conlestlon of Mtu.i.Kii on the scaffold, atill entertain a serious doubt ol his guilt. There Ls not, in our recollection, a single case of a l like character in which so earnest and general ; an etlort was made to reprieve the prisoner, 1 upon tho supposition of his Innocence, or, : ruther, a dissatisfaction with the evidence upon which bo was convicted. Kot only did ' the German Six let y In London make the most 7cnlouB and persistent etl'orts to have Mi.'i.- I.l it respited, but some of the h gh oIllchLs of ' the Prussian Government at lieilin Joined In thcM' appeals. All, however, w is in vain, 1 lie stern rig'ir of English justice prevailed. Tho accused, who w lis pursued to this countiy, arrested in New York, and curried h ick to the very scene of his ullcged homicide, was tried, condemned, and hanged. It is not by any means to bo i taken for granted that he was guilty because 1 he was judicially declared to be so. Verdicts j of juries iu ermiiaal cases are uot infallible not always necessarily conclusive of the ques tions of licl 'hey profess to find. There were Items of testimony in Mi M.r.ii n rase which, it is true, bore very powerfully against th presumption of his innocence. They seemed almi sf as Irresi-tible a direct and positive proof of criminality. And yet they were but links in a chain of cireum-tanees apparently connecting M i it. Kit with the murder. His, Inditd, an old proverb, that circumstantial cvidi nee, when completely made out, is the strongest sort of proof. And yet a false wit ness on the side of the prosecution, or the want of an honest one on the S'de of the de fense, to clear up some matter seemingly In consistent w ith the theory ol tlie innocence ot the prisoner, may lead to a wrong verdict, v.Ihii the chain of testimony against him appears to be perfect in every essential par ticular. As respects the present case, the confession of Mil l. m is not to be Implicitly relied upon. lie protested Ilia' he was not guilty even up to the very instant before the drop fell, and though at that awlul moment, with his whole soul agitated, bo may have uttered the words imputed to him'' Yes, I did it!' the last words he evi r articulated jet it is not Im- ossibie that lie may have pronounced them ( ilherur.eoiisciouslv.orel.se in agoni.cd im- alienee of the importunate ch.ipl iin, w ho seems first to have assumed the guilt of .Mi i.- iiai, mid f hen lo have persecuted III in with appeals to confess the crillifl, up to the last Cut ill moment . The clergyman, too, is reported to have been greatly delighted with bis llnal success in overcoming the fortitude of a wretched youth, whom, it may be, he literally badgered into bearing false witness agilnsl himself. The rtorterfbr the Lon 'on Timet, In describing the scene, says: "So grentty iclievcd was the reverend pentlo- m. n by tlc coiiiissioD, that bo rush i from (he n allolil esc aiiiiieg, i I ank (i id ! Thank Owl'.' unit sunk down in u clmir, com pic cly exhausted liv bis action. A'ter ii ovtriug, lie ri'pe.itiM in K. Kli h, in tlio pr. since of the Micr.fl- and ui.ui-iflicrilfs, and the rcpri8.ntntr.es ot the nnp per prcs, of w hom llicru were four, what IikU jnt i asscil between linn ano the convict, ptceiht ly us It Lad iiccn reved above." As the case stands the weight of probability Is certainly against the hypothesis of Mt:i.- I,n:'s innocence. Aud yet the human mind Is so prone not to sympathize with crime, but to leu n fo the hide and cling to the hope of innocence, in every case of alleged crime In which there Is a loop to hang a doubt on. that it is not at all surprising that the execution of Mt'MKK, under tho remarkable circum stances that attended it, will long be recalled with a painful sense of misgiving as to bis guilt. There is no likelihood, of course, that if a mistake was made in the ver dict, and the w rong man made to suitor for the murder of Mr. Bilious, tho fact will ever lie discovered, thoigh it has happened repeat edly thut men on their doath-beds have con fessed to the commission of crimes for which guiltless persons have heel, punished. Should it, however, ut any time hereafter be disclosed that Mi'i.r.Kit did not commit tho murder, but was only connected with It by a reniarkuble concatenation of accidental coin cidences which fixes the guilt upon him, while screening tho real criminal even from suspicion, the revelatlou would come too late for bis bcnellt, but not too late to teach courts and juries a most valuable practical lesson. it is true that justice is often defeated by the overweening compassion and doubts of hor ministers. YH it Is nevertheless a sound and wholesome rule, that many guilty persons had better escape than that one innocent person should sutler; mid though a jury may even convict and a court sentence, it may yet be w he and humane to graut a reprieve where there is a rational doubt of guilt ufler con viction. "WASIIINGTOjS G033IP.
