TUB DESTINY OF THE NEW DO MINION. The people of tbe New Dominion continue to be profoundly dintro8ned by thoir un promimng financial and industrial condition. Thoir merchants are failing by scores, thoir farmers are sighing in vain for a market for their products, their mines are neglected, their manufactures are unimportant or un productive, and the only quality for which thoir land is prized or praised is the question able characteristic of being a good country to emigrate from. The political situation is peculiar. Great Britain, in devising and hastening the con summation of the confederation scheme, manifestly desired to rid herself of the bur dens involved in the maintenance of the ex pensive and unremunerative connection with jher North American possessions. She has told the Canadians in every possible manner that she wished to be well rid of them, Her Trime Ministers, her Parliamentary orator, her press, and her colonial Governors have reiterated in a hundred ways, and on a thou sand occasions, the idea that if the Canadians desired independence all they had to do was to abk for it. John Bull is like an old farmer who has reared to man hood a lout of a boy, whom he does not wish to kick out of the old homestead, but whose lack of desire to seek his. fortunes in an inde pendent and manly struggle with the world he despises and regrets, more especially as the work of the boy-man does not pay the ex penses of his maintenance. And yet John Bull, like other fathers, has his own plans for his offspring, which do not exactly accord with the true interests of the Litter. He desires the New Dominion to become independent, but he is not yet fully prepared to sanction independence except with the understanding that it will not be the forerunner of annexa tion to the United Statos. He can stand the shock of a loss of colonial possessions, though they embrace half a continent, because after every conceivable experiment he has die covered that, while they entail endless ex pense, they cannot be made to yield a sub stantial revenue; and that, while he nominally owns this vast estate, he must keep it in some sort of repair, and garrison, defend, and im prove it, without being able ( to extract a baubee of rents or profits. And yet he can not brook the thought that this unpromising and unproductive territory shall be made to contribute to the greatness and wealth of the United States. He desires to maintain on our northern boundary a nation over which he can maintain a com manding influence, which will be to some extent a check upon the Great Republic, but which will not be, in turn, answerable for the insults and outrages of the mother country. Meanwhile, all parties in the New Do minion acknowledge that its prosperity can only be restored by free trade with the United States, and they are now pretty well satisfied that this cannot be regained while it retains its connection with Great Britain. As a solu tion of these difficulties, Hon. L. S. Hunting don, a member of the Canadian Parlia ment, has recently proposed and Advocated in an able speech the establishment of Canadian independence and the subsequent negotiation of a treaty with this country, establishing a commercial union or American Zollverein, which would grant free trade without involving political annexa tion. Such a proposition would, perhaps, be re garded with more favor than a reciprocity treaty made with Great Britain for the benefit of a British colony, but it is extremely doubtful whether Congress would sanction it. If the American market is essential to the prosperity .of the New Dominion, as all parties now agree, let the people seek it by becoming bone of our bone and flesh of our flesh. For a time colonial loyalty and prejudice and British jealousy may interpose obstacles to this adjustment, but it is the duty of the in habitants who seek our aid to devise means for overcoming these difficulties rather than our duty to make concessions to such feelings. If the New Dominion needs our help, she should gain it only on condition that she shares our fortunes for good or evil, so that her consequent prosperity may contribute to the wealth and power of an integral portion of the Union. As a temporary expedient in dependence may be worthy of eonsifleration.but as a permanent rival government on this con tinent the New Dominion would have no valid ,laiiu to favors from us; and while we would not unnecessarily assail it, we would have little reason to form with it the mongrel alliance proposed by Mr. Huntington. 110 W DEEDS ARE RECORDED. A ni'mbeb of leading conveyancers have united in a letter complaining that deeds are very imperfectly recorded in this city. They state that "errors and omissions and illegible passages are often found in the most impor tant evidences of title," and that "the evil to be remedied is the Idek of skill and instruc tion in those employed in transcribing deeds, Ac, which are nut recorded 'in a fair and legi ble hand,' as is by law required." It thus ap pears that notwithstanding the outrageous fees and exactions which those who transfer property ore compelled to pay to the Recorders, nd their tleiks, the real duties of that ofthe are performed in a miserably inefficient man ner. The income of the head official is esti mated at thirty thousand dollars and he is ' (tJius jaid five tlwusaai dollars wore Una the President Of the United Stales, for services which would bo richly compensated by ft salary of three thousand dollars. The clerks can rarely be induced to act promptly unless they receive extra pay; and as they are usually ap pointed rather on account of their sovviccs as partisans than their capacity as chirographora, the conveyancers tell us that they discharge their nominal duty in "a very imperfect and defective manner!" Other Row officios nro managed very much in the name stylo; and as a practical rosult the people of Philadelphia ore fleeced to the extent of several hundred thousand dollars per annum, and at the same time very poorly served. The remedy for these evils is palpable. Fixed salaries should be given to these officials, and if the foes continue to be unnecessarily largo, the city treasury, instead of money-loving politicians, should be benefited by the enormous charges. The chief obstacle to this reform, heretofore, has boon the stubboru opposition of (ho mem bers of the lower branch of the Legislature. They are always ready to help an office-holder to plunder the people-, but never willing to rescue the people from the vampires. A JUDICIAL DEFENSE OF THE POLICEMEN. J vixiE Ludlow, in his charge to the Grand Jury yesterday, denounced the modem sys tem of treating prisoners like "boarders at a Lotel,"and he'also alleged that "the great cause of crime" is the abuse of the pardoning power. There is doubtless great. force in these strictures, as well as in his complaints of the defectivo license laws, but we can scarcely perceivo the wisdom of his course in connecting with those condemnations a vol unteer defense of the policemen of this citv. Tho drift of his argument is that the public must account for the present carnival of crime in some other way than bv ascribincr it to the defects of Mayor Fox's force. Ho is right in assuming that that defect is not tho sole cause of the frequency of crime, but he is wrong in endeavoring indirectly, to create the impression that the policemen are not in a large decree answerable for the present un fortunate condition of affairs. Wittingly or unwittingly, Mayor Fox has sadly mismanaged the police department. He may have been animated by correct motives, but a very bad place is said to be paved with good intentions, ond he has undeniably made a number of very inappropriate appointments, at tho in stance of unscrupulous partisans. All official agencies for tho suppression of crime, com bined, are of comparatively small importance, in great cities, if the police fail to do their duty, and really bad policemen are worse than none. IDE REPUBLICAN MOVEMENT IN SPAIN. . A cable telegram announces that tho Repub lican movement in the south of Spain has assumed such imposing proportions that tho Government has introduced a bill to suspend the rights of individuals, "until the insurrec tion is suppressed." This measure is the Spanish equivalent for suspending the haboas corpus,' and perhaps something more, and it is so odious to the Republican deputies that they will probably withdraw from the Cortes if the proposed bill is passed. Another re port from Paris alleges (on apparently insuffi cient authority, however) that if Ferdinand of Portugal does not accept the Spanish crown in eight days, Spain will be a republic. Vi'e do not wonder at tho impatience of the people. The increasing strength of the re publican movement is a natural consequence of the protracted delay in selecting a king. As the present rulers act only provisionally or temporarily, and to a considerable extent arbitrarily, until a dofinite adjustment of some kind is effected, the masses very pro perly demand that this uncertainty should cease. They have tried kings and queens for centuries, only to find each new monarch a greater inenbus than his predecessor; and since there is so much trouble in selecting a new titled oppressor, they are not unwisely concluding that it is desirable to give a re public a fair trial. Since that form of gov ernment would afford the people an oppor tunity to select a ruler by a popular vote and to depose him peacefully in a few years, if his administration should prove unpopular, it is difficult to explain the reluctance of the existing rulers to republicanism on any other hypothesis than that they are secretly weddod to the interests of some one of the claimants to the throne, and that their present move ments are controlled in a much larger degree by this devotion to a dynasty than by a patriotic regard for the welfare of the nation. The new Republican outbreak may exercise on important influence upon the relations be tween Spain and the United States. It will at least admonish Prim and Sorrano of the danger of provoking a war with this country, and make them more anxious than ever to hasten an adjustment of tho Cuban question. THE. FINE ARTS. Opening of IliiHrliliK-'M Art f.nllery. The Art Galleries of Mr. Cliarles Y. llaacltlne, at No. 1120 difsnut street, have lcen closed for some mouths, for the purpose of making extensive altera tions and Improvements that will adapt them more perfectly for exhibiting first-class works of art, and for the t convenience and comfort of lovers of art who limy desire to resort to them. A haadsome walnut staircase has been constructed, opening a 'communication directly from the store to 'the gal leries upon the second Moor, which will be deemed a treat Improvement over the old arrangement by which admission to the galleries was gained by steps leading directly from the street. The walls in both stories are panelled to within a few feet of the ceilings, for the display of the .pictures, and above the panelling they are frescoed with original designs by M. Huseltlne in the Greek style, and the same patterns are continued on the ceilings In Bub dued and harmonious coloring. The ornamentation is peculiar, and the whole tilling up of the galleries Indicates un artistic taste that Is extremely rare. The floors of the prluclpul galleries are Inlaid with different colore 1 woods, and In the centre they are covered with carpets of rich and elegant design. The furnituro is handsome, and the whole fitting up of the ehtabllhhmeut is such as to make It an attraction of itself independently of tliu gems of art displayed upon Its walla. The lower apartment is devoted to emrraviugt, chioniOB, artists' materials, etc., and the second floor to choice foreign und American pictures and Hta. 1 tua: ' t-y trusts ot Uie jjigncat lerutatiou.

Continued from lant edition. j Mr. McMurtrie objected to the present acceptance i of I he bequest, as the building should bo first erected j and tendered to the company, as prescribed by the will; thus tho company would escape the legal I charge of a collusion with the executor to evade the ! intention or tne testator. The stockholders should consider also that In accepting a trust they bound themselves to meet every requirement of the trust, whether the funds provided should bo sumV.lent for that purnose or not. He moved the fallowing reso lution to be inserted as an amendment on striking out all after the word resolved: In the opinion of the stockholders, tho time when they can be asked to accept la that pointed out by the will, when the building Is completed, and the liul ilitlts which will be assumed can be ascertained and measured, with tliemeansof performing them. After some further discussion the vote was taken upon Mr. McMurtrle's amendment, and it resulted 31 ayes to !2 njy.. Mr. Phillips' amendment was lost, bv 2Saycsto29 nas, the Chairman eas'ing the deciding vote. On a motion to adjourn, the vote was 33 ayes to 29 nays. Many members started immediately 1 1 leave, but the chairman stated he Mail not announced the re sult of the vote, and requested tho vote should air.iln be taken by tellers to obviate the dltllcnUy In de ciding. '1 his was objected to by svveral, as soma ni' inbi rs hud left the loom. On motion a vote was ta'en by tellers, Messrs. Fralcy ard Tllghnion being appointed. Tne second vote resulted HI ayes to 80 navs. The chairman asked what action Blnuld ba taken on the votes of the proxies? .fudge Stroud asked hut the proxies were. They were read, and Uie chairman decided they had a right to vole on the question of adjournment. Judge Stroud appealed from the decision. Several members asked if the proxy papers were stamped. Judge Sharswood decided that question was not properly beforo him. Mr. Fraley suggested that a day should be ap pointed whereon a stock voto Hliiuld be taken upnii the square Issue of the committee's report, aud It should be thoroughly advertised. -. rending Us acceptance the discussion was con tinued. SICKLES. . & French View or Ills Diplomatic rowers. I'uris Correnpondenee London 2'imen. The note lately addressed by General Sickles to the Madrid Government with respect to tho Cuban insurrection and to the probability of early American recognition ot the insurgents as a belligerent power is at variance, as you are doubtless aware, both in tone aud conclusions, witk the recent diplomatic communications that have passed between the Spanish Minister at Washington and the United States Government. General Sickles' diplomatic experience before he went to Spain was extremely limited, and, perhaps, altogether insulUciont to enable him rightly to estimate the value of his words aud the effect they might produce. It Is presumable he has been a little surprised and startled at the excitement his ill-considered communication has occasioned, and he may have had his eyes opened to the propriety of modify ing that which he too hastily said. It is dilllcult to Delieve that his government will approve him. There is no pretext for recognizing an Insurrec tion which does not hold a single town or strong position, and which owes its prolongation mainly to the climate that prostrates its oppo nents, and to the facilities afforded it bya thiuly pcopled country abounding in cover and offering many obstacles to tho operations of regular troops. At the time of General Sickles' appoint ment as United States Minister to. Madrid, tho choice was greatly criticized and generally deemed a bad one. It has not received the sanc tion of the American Senate, and that body would do itself credit by refusing to confirm in his new functions a man who, to say nothing of what may be alleged against his past life, has made so bad a first appearance in his new capa city of a diplomatist.
