Onr State Legislature Its Duties and It
These assembled this morning at the State
Capital the Legislature which is to guide our
State through that depressing period which
always succeeds a time of extraordinary ex
citement. Our civil polity', like the human
frame, must have a depression in correspond
ence with the previous unusual exertions, and
it is the gravest duty of a legislator to recu
perate the strength of a Commonwealth with
out the use of unwholesome tonics. Such
will be among the duties of the members of
our State Legislature, and to successfully per
. form It thej must exercise discretion, possess.
. ability, and have a talent and experience
which we greatly doubt whether they possess
. The caucus nominations made yesterday were
. of course unfavorable to Philadelphia. Mr.
James Kenny, the nominee for Speaker
of the House, and whose election totvk place
this morning, is, of course, a member from
the country, while the old Clerk and his
assistants will without doubt be rechoscn.
In the Senate the Speaker was elected last
' year, so that the only officers are the Clerks,
all of whom Lave been elected. We hope
that honesty, devotion to State, not party in
terests, and an unswerving devotion to free
dom and duty, will be the characteristics ol
1 the session. The immorality and bribery
which has been too olten prevalent in the
: capital, can be checked it the members de
sire. It is in their, own hands whether they
acquire the reputation of respected, honora
ble legislators, or whether they be placed
upon the catalogue of their corrupt, dishonest,
' The issues which they will be ca'ledupon
to settle are of vital interest to our State.
If they but do their duty, protect our trade
and encourage our manufactures if they put
forth the mnited influence of our legislation in
fayor of our rights, they will be able to guide
the State through this roost onerous period of
reaction. If they fail to do right, and waste
their energies upon sell-ag?randizement, they
will blast the private character and seriously
injure the State. Let them decide. Either
way is open to them, and it is for them to
choose which way is right.
Is Philadelphia to become a Japanese City?
Tub Japanese city of Yeddo was lor centu
ries shut up from the world. The jhips and
steamers of other countries never ruffled the
waters of the Bay of Yokuhama. In the
words of a Japanese author, the following
, reasons are given lor this seclusion : (iCos
- Fvcres never spoke of gain, wishing to
check the lust of it in its source. This also
was the reason why my ancestors cut off all
intercource of foreign nations with Japan."
We are to infer from this that commerce is
supposed, even by the ignorant Japanese, to
be a source of wealth.
We are ashamed to write it. but no citv in
. the world with as magnificent a harbor, as
great a population as Philadelphia possesses,
is as much like Yeddo. At this day, with the
Delaware spreading its deep and broad waters
.the whole length of the city, with eight hun
dred thousand people crowding its shores,
we are literally without direct communica
tion with the other ports ol our own country.
A few lines form the exception, but this is
the rule, and New York and Baltimore con
trol the steam coastwise trade of the Union.
This disgrace is the greater, because Phila
delphia at one time was as far superior to
New York in commerce as ehe is now in
manufactures. How we allowed the power
we possessed to pass away into weakness, it
would be useless to inquire; the question
lorcei upon us is whether we can regain it.
' Certainly, if we would follow ths Japanese,
and, like Confucius, cheek the abuse of
wealth by dispensing with it altogether, we
had better continue the indifference of the
past ten years ; but if we believe that the city
would be made happier by more prosperity,
we had better make sure that the present
effort to establish lines of steamships to South
ern porta is successfully can led out. A num
ber ot our leading merchants have declared
that Philadelphia must lose her manufacturing
superiority, and cannot be developed In pro
portion with other cities, unless she has ade
quate means of transportation to accommo
date and Increase her business. They have
held meetings, and appointed committees to
raise subscriptions, and have alreidy obtained
upwards of $400,000, for the purpose of cre
ating lines to the principal ports of
. the South. They are workinc for the
good of the entire community. We believe
they have set themselves to this work as
shrewd busines. men, who want to make a
good investment; but we also eive them
credit for public spirit and civic pride. Their
plan is before the public, and it only remains
to see whether merchants and manufacturers
TITO DAILY KVKN1KG TKl.KGUAI'U 1'HH,AI)KU1HA, TUICSDAY,
will sustain it. The argument in its favor is
irn sistible. Tg it not plain that Philadelphia
cannot successfully continue to compete as a
seller with other cities that surpass her as a
sender? Merchants abroad prefer to buy in
New York or BaMmore, because thence they
can (ret direct transportation for their goods,
while here we have no steam lines, and, at cost
of money and fme, must send our manufac
tures to rival cities for exportation. And this,
too, at a time when the South is.becomlng the
great customer of the North ; when her people
want everything, and the competition to sell
is increasing evory day! There never was
such an opportunity offered to Philadelphia to
recover her lost trade.
But now we are locked up. The waters of
the Delaware are wasted in the ocean. And
while we are idle the wharves of New York
are crowded with steamers, and its whole
river-front is a scene of ceaseless activity.
Baltimore has four steamships to Liverpool ;
she contemplates a line to Hamburg and to
Bremen ; her steamers run regularly to New
Orleans and Savannah. We alone are Idle.
Vessels with their rich freight pass Delaware
Bay as if it were the mouth of a creek, and
we are not unlike the inhabitants of Yeddo,
who wondered when they first beheld a fleet.
Are we then to continue to degenerate, and
to become at last a Japanese city in America?
Mexican l'eonnue How Southern Slavery
will be Re-established.
Theius are many ways ol affecting an object
by other than direct means. It is easy (or an
insolvent debtor to retain his property by
making an assignment of it to his wife ; so also
is it easy or a people to accept the universal
freedom declared by the victors, and at the
same time continue slavery under a more
euphonious title. The spirit which has been
evinced by the South is such as to clearly
indicate that were it possible the blacks would
continue in a servitude as degrading as that
from which the force of Northern valor has
rescued them. It is, therefore, not the ab
sence of the de3lre, but of the opportunity,
which prevents its re-establishment. Yet with
this knowledge before us. we are gradually
giving into the hands of the Southern planters
the power U make any provisions relative to
the future ot the blacks, relying on our law
forbidding slavery to checkmate any oppres
sion, and render illeeal any attempt at human
bondage. From letters we have received, and
from the tone adopted by the Southern papers,
we can entertain no doubt but that at the
earliest opportunity the system of peonage,
which is a characteristic of Mexico, will be
transported into the Southern States.
The empire of Maximilian his set us an
example as to how a Government, while it
has forbidden slavery, can establish a system
as conducive to tyranny and oppression as
any cede of servitude existing at the time of
Saxon serldom, or anions; the captives of the
Bey of Tunis. How this can be done is
shown by an able message Irom Secretary
Seward, in reply to a resolution of the Sen
ate. We will see how ihe plan which was
adopted in Mexico worked on the 10th of Sep
tember. Hon W. H. Cobwjn, acting Charge
d' Affaires of the United States to Mexico,
lorwarded to the Secretary of State a series
of decrees from Maximilian relative tothe
status of the black emigrants who should be
induced to emigrate to that country. The
following regulations are the most important,
as they form the framework for the establish
ment of peonage. Although it is declared
thut every person, upon touching Mexican
soil, becomes free, yet the succeeding provi
sion rendered null the original assertion.
Each "laborer" is bound to Join himself to a
master, and to contract with him for a series
of years, not less than five, nor more than
ten. In return for his labor he is to receive
wages," one-fourth of which are to be de
posited in a bank of the employer. If he (the
"laborer") should become Indebted to his pro
prietor during these ten years, he can be held
in bonds until the amount of indebtedness is
cancelled. By such an ariangement it is evi
dent that with but little difficulty the whole
life of the servant could be made one long
The feudal system has been transplanted to
our times. The serf is compelled to attach
himself to some lord, who agrees to give him
a miserable pittance, and finally, in a fit of
starvation and need, he Bells his birthright of
freedom for a mess of pottage. The same
system against which the Government ol the
United States is protesting because of its
establishment in Mexico to-day, is being
gradually brought Into full force within the
bounds of our own territory, under. aggra
The South, with that ability which has
always characterized its leaders, immediately
upon the failure of their Ik be 11 ion determined
to be victorious, not by force, but by fraud,
deceit, sycophancy, and unscrupulous false
hood. In this they have been successful.
'J he Freedmen's Bureau compels the blacks
to hire themselves to some master, to contract
to work for him at a rate of wages totally in
adequate. Should they fall In debt, which
they undoubtedly will, then It is the duty of
the State Legislature to make all needful
laws. Of course the white contractor should
not be Injured by loss of money, consequently
the black will have to work off his debt. As
the rate he receives is not sufficient to support
him. his burden, like that of Atlas, will be
constantly Increasing; he will never once reach
to freedom, but see it gradually receding from
him, despite all his efforts. In ten years the
whole black population will be wcrking off
their debts, under the power of the employer,
for either he must continue to labor and
be oppressed, or else be arrested for debt, and
spend his days in a county jail.
. Thus will we have the accursed system re
established over all the South. We may call
it peonage, or indebtedness, or justice, or
whatever soft sounding name may be desired,
but it Is slaveiy, as iniquitous and as unjust as
that of Barbary or South Carolina ten years
ago. Though Sa'an appear in the guise of an
angel of light, yet is he as evil and as power
ful as when his costume is the traditionary
hoofs and horns. Because human servitude Is
disguised, it is only the moie dangerous, for
if it appears in its native hldeousncss, then
the Christian scntimnt of our country would
kill it, but when masked and sugar-coated it
may be endured.
The action of the State Department In
protesting against th; establishment of
peonage in Mexico ; Is proper. Is worthy of
a free and liberty loving people but let charity
begin at home. Let us not only save Mexico
from such a curse, but be careful that while
we are endoavorlng to cure another we get
not the disease ourselves. The cunntng and
darkness with which the leaders of the late
inwuryent States commenced their efforts,
would, had it been persevered In. have secured
their triumph. But drunken with their (first
successes, they laid aside the veil of hu
utility, and claimed as a right what they
might have got by supplication. To-day we
see their designs, and warn our authorities
against them. We have guaranteed freedom
to on ignorant and helpless people. Let us
make good our word, and not, having re
deemed them from slavery, give them over to
the curse of peon servitude having dragged
them from the jaws of Charybdis, dash them
on the jutting of rock Scylla.
Let Jrstice be Done t
The recent conviction of young Ketchum,
charged with the commission of a gigantic
crime, and the inconsiderable punishment
which a jury ot bis countrymen have meted
out to him, indicates a leniency upon the part
of the people that Is neither praiseworthy nor
commendable. We have arrived at. a nnrtnA
when unscrupulous rascals who have means
at their command, are licensed by law to act
almost without control and ireed from any
responsibility. In the L-etchcm affair, a fast
youth is permitted to peculate a vast sum
from bis own father, and the offended law
visits upon blm four years and six months :
while in a neighboring city a poor man, with
a family to support, was sentenced to the
county jail for eight months lor the frightful

These are a few of the delightful uncertain

1 hey are the Pariahs, the Ishmaels of society.
Their hand is against every- man's, and every
man's hand is against theirs. But if a kid
gloved and brown-atone Bcoundrel Insinuates
his hand and abstracts from your safe the
hard earned results oi a life of toil and indus
try, a benevolent and magnanimous public
sentiment grows maudlin over youthful indis
cretions, and charges the fault to an overflow
of animal spirits. Not many years ago a scion
of Kentucky murdered a poor schoolmaster,
and a Hardin county jury excused the unfor
tunate act because Matt. Ward was a man
ol mettle and of fiery temperament.
The faith of the people is beginning to
waver, and many are beginning to doubt
whether trial by jury Is really a public benefit.
A rich rascal scarcely ever receives the just
reward of his guilt ; there are too many loop
holes in the mebhes of the law through which
the moBt obese and bloated blackguard can
escape from punishment. There is great need
Jor an example, and we have an idea that a
million-dollar thief sent to the penitentiary
for twenty years would be more beneficial to
the morals of the community than the con
viction of a thousand shoplifters and pick
pockets who lack the wherewithal to make
their crimes appear venal.

l xtb&xNTS. A useful, valuable, nnd de
lightfully acceptable preeont for Christmas would be
a bottle of that flagrant Ilair Tonio and ltcautlflor,
Jtctrouvey's Turkish Bandolenian. What can be
more acceptable than anything that will beautify t
that will restore nature's decay by stopping the hair
from falling out, restoring its natural color malting
it to grow in luxuriance and beauty, asist in putting
up according to the present style and fashion and
1 p it in place f This, Jietrouvey's Turkish Bando
lenian Hair Tonio will do, and for proof we refer
you to any person who has tried it. It Is acknow
ledged to be the beautifler of the age, the only Hair
Tonic and Restorer worthy of the name. In Turkey
in Vance, in England, in America, everywhere
where tho Bandolenian is known, it is pronounced
the "neplut ultra" of Hair Preparations. Ilomomber,
it is free from all metallic poison?, that are contained
in most Hair Colors aud dressings. It is the extract
of many flowers and herbs, bcautiiully put up, an
ornament to the Toi'ot.
