The KepubliciuiB were ho much incetinod by the conduct of Mayor Fox ia duKiImrging from ihe police foroe nil iU faithful old member, and Btipilanlihg' theni with , raw and iaein ciout' appointees of his own party,' and the demand for a Metropolitan Police bill became ho tirgont after the election of landfall, that wise and jnut action by tho fepresontativeH ot thU city oould Boarcely hare failed to secure the passage of a measure which would have been alike acceptable to the Oovernor and to a large majority of the citizens of Philadel phia, j The prevailing sympathy for the worthy ex-members of the old police force, the unpopularity of Fox's appointees, and the desperate, exertion of the Democracy to secure by corrupt means a perpotnation ml the power they had itbusgd, all conspired to giro greut strength to any appropriate plati of relief. At this juncture, however, the Republican legislators of Philadelphia who had just beon re-eleoted, under protest, re solved to use the prevailing feeling for their personal advantage. They refused to support any new police bill which would not ensure the .appointment of a large proportion of their immediate partisans, and give to them selves the power' of controlling delegate elec tions and County Conventions through offi cials of their own creation who were to be 'paid out of the City Treasury. It is impossi ble to account for the monstrous character of some of the provisions they introduced into the police bill on any other theory. Hereto fore, when commissions have been esta blished, even for comparatively unim portant . purposes, great care Ran been taken to confide the appointing power to the most unobjectionable hands, and to yecure the services of the most popular citi zens. But in this instance the Commissioners ; are named at the outlet by the Legislature, and while a shallow pretense is held out of ' jtermitting the people to vote for these officials ?at some future period, great ' care is taken to . prevent this contemplated piece of police ma- cbinery for: renominating and re-electing odious legislators and their favorites from 'being seriously changed for several year. The people had a right to demand that, if the 'power of selecting their own agents was Uf be wrested from thorn, it should at least be re posed in men of such 1 exalted character, enlarged experience, incorruptible integrity, and attested prudence, that there could be no rational' ground for personal objection 'to, or distrust of, the appointed Commis .sioners. This demand gained especial foroe 'from the extraordinary powers with which these favorites of the Legislature were to be Invested. Their authority would have far .transcended that which is now exercised by the Mayor. They would not on'y have been 4 endowed with , the "appointment, control, vand entire executive government of the ' " police," but . with . "authority to increase the force of patrolmen should they , deem the same necessary;" and as the act provides that . it Ls "made the duty of the Select and Com mon Council to appropriate sufficient moneys to meet the expenses of the board and the said force," and that the board is to submit , to .Counoils estimates of the sums required for the maintenance of the said foroe," this immaculate body of Commissioners would i exercise well-nigh absolute control over the municipal purse as well as the muuicipal sword. What man can say without a blush that William J. Pollock, John McCarthy, j 3eorge Truman, Jr., Peter A. B. Widener. and John S. IMttenhouse possess such pecu liar qualifications that they deserve to be singled out as the Ave men of a hundred thousand who above all others should be en dowed, by legislative prescription, with these - extraordinary powers ? j . Much as we desire the establishment of a Metropolitan Police, free from the incessant changes connected with the present system, and anxious as we are for the relief of the . city from Fox's inefficient force, we believe ' that the new Police bill would have done in finitely more harm than good, and we there- fore thank Governor Geary for having vetoed it. We have freely censured some of his offi cial actions heretofore, and we still regret thai ne has not on other occasions scrutinized bills presented for his signature with the care he baa displayed in this instance, but he de serves ; no - little t tredit for his sturdy opposition to this last legislative iniquity." The Governor concedes that Che inefficiency of the police of the city is a proper subject of legislative consideration, and he plainly points out a practical plan of " action in his declaration that "if the people f Philadelphia desire a Metropolitan Police uiu, let the Commissioners be of their own . choosing at the ballot-box," but be has at the xame time exposed the dangers of the legis lative scheme, and he has rendered great ser vice to the tax-payers of Philadelphia arid to the Republican party of this city by thwart . Nf.w Yok, according to the annual- report of the Hoard of Exdne, received last year : from the license fees of taverns and drinking , KaioonsU)(,ii)i. in me city of Philadelphia, ' where the license is much smaller than in . New York, and left uncollected as often as it is collected, the amount received from the same source during the year ending Novem ber JtO, IW.'J, reached but $170,r:W, and this jalVj;,J ft? H wri in coiupamoj wjj New York, went into the troasnry of IheJHate. instead ff that of the city. The use of in toxicating liquors is unquestionably the most prolifio source of crime and poverty in this, as well as in every other community, and those who make a living by traffioking in the fiery, maddening, impoverishing stuff should be forced by the law to contribute a fair amount towards repressing crime and rclioving want. The license fees should be fixed at a much larger sum than they are under the present law, and they should belong to the treasury of the city, whioh is so overburdened by taxa tion that it Beems impossible for it to provide the accommodations required for its criminal population; and, above all, ' the license law should be honestly and effectively enforced, and every man who attempts to evade its just provisions dealt with as severely as the law allows, i ., ' .. '. . ,' , LEGALIZING DIOAMT. Ix the House ' of Representatives at Harria burg yesterday there was a slight divergence from the beaten track of latter-day legisla tion, caused by a theological discussion upon the marriage tie and the bearing of Chris tianity upon it. The iniquitous divorce bill introduced some time since came up as the first in order on the publio calendar. The proposed measure is so glaringly outrageous that we quote the first section entire. It reads as follows: "That In addition to causes of divorces now ex latinfr, every Court or Common Pica shall have powf r ami Jurisdiction to grant and dVoree divorces from the bond of matrimony in all cases in wiiioli the Court shall Ih of opinion, upon the nvtrtcnne Kulmiltted, that the ttest liuerest ul the partiiM and 1 lie ( BiiHe of public morality will to' promoted (hereby." Some time ago we ventilated the divorce law which has brought such scandal upon the State of Indiana. The measure before the House yesterday is free from some of its ob jectionable features regulating proceedings in divorce cases, but it fully equals the Indiana law in the sweeping provision above quoted. If the judges of the Courts of Common pleas throughout the Commonwealth were natives of another and higher sphere, if they wore a little more closely allied to the order of angels and archangels, there might be some hope that they would so exercise tho disore- tion which this measuro proposes to confer upon them as to promote "thebewt inter ests of the parties and the cause of publio j morality." But as long as our judges are not taken from among the angeli), it is utter folly to expect that such a discretion would not load to the most scandalous and iniquitous abuses, sapping the very foundations of so ciety, and rendering "publio morality" as much of a farce in iliis State as it has long been in Indiana and some other sections of the country. Mr. White, of Allegheny county, appeared to be aware of the inevitable results of such legislation, and in a feeble way attempted to apply a remedy by amending the first section of the bill by the addition of the words "as taught by the principles of the New Testa ment." This proposition brought Mr. Craig, of Lawrence county, to his feet, and led to a discussion as to whether it is the true pro vince of a civil government to administer Christianity. Some of the members were afforded an opportunity to reveal the fact that they bad .heard of the principles of the New Testament, if nothing moves but be yond this trifling item the debate elicited nothing. If, instead of drifting into dogmatio discussion, the members who desire to preserve what little sacredness is left to the marital relation had denounced the proposed bill in fitting terms. they would have served their con stituents more effectively. The scheme is not at all made more palatable by the provi sions of the third section, wlich declares it "to be the true intent and moaning of this act that all the powers vested in the Legis lature to grant divorces is by this act vested in the several Courts of Common Pleas. The divorce business is one of the greatest scandals of Harrisbnrg, and one of whioh the publio has less knowledge than of some other -t. But the remedy for it is not the clothing of the judges of our courts with an even more discretionary power than is now exercised by the Legislature, , ,The true correction of the evil would be its entire overthrow by the en-i actrwent of a law depriving the Legislature of all power to grant divorces, leaving the courts with the powers they now enjoy, and noth ing more. The bill was postponed for the present, but it will doubtless be brought up again. If it should eventually pass, it is to be Hoped, in tne interests ot "public mo rality," that Governor Geary, while he is in the vetoing moooV will put his foot down upon it, as well as upon all other measures which aim a blow at the very foundations of our social bjstem. TUS Hot'Sfe CoMtttt'TlUfi ON TliKKITdldlJ j taking testimony with regard to the condition of affairs in the Mwrmon country, and there seems to be a commendable disposition in Congress to move with proper caution in the adoption of measures to remedy the evils that exiat there, and to assert in the most positive manner the authority of the Government. It is admitted on all sides that the peculiar matrimonial, inatitutions of the Mormon Church are disgraoeful to the country and to the age, and that the time is fast approaohing when something must be done in the way of reformation. rThe circumstances of the case; however, are such as will require peculiarly delicate management, and any rash and hastily considered action on the part of Congress will scarcely produce any but evil results. On this account Mr. Culloui's bill for the aboli tion of polygamy has met with but little favor, and it is generally conceded that it is not adapted for the accomplishment of the de. sired object.' It is impossible tU proceed against a whole wxuuiunity of people, espe cially in a matter that principally affects themselves, and is held by them as an . article of religious belief, in the same manner as against single indi viduals residing in the mikt of a aoctoty unanimously opjiowed to them. Polygamy in V'liUl '4 U4l(slU iu Uitf abut as in'lbe States, and any attempt to suppress it by armed force will only result in blood shed and disaster. At the same time it is a matter of much conaequence that this dis graceful featnro of Mormoniam should be brought directly under the condemnation of the law, and the authority of the Government asserted in the most positive manner over the whole of its territory. It would be better, however, for Congrws to do nothing what ever at the present time than to take any hasty atcps that will be repented of here after, and rather than adopt such a bill as that of Mr. Culloni, it would be preferable to leave Mormonism to the influences of tho civilization that Is sweeping westward and fast surrounding it with a hostile population. Turn are giants in these days, but the probabilities are that they will shortly bocome so common as to bo a drug in the market, and cease to have any particular interest with the wonder-loving public. . It is a character istic of the American show business that those who manage it never know to let well enough alone, and if one individual makes a hjt there are a hundred others so impatient to share his profits that they all rush in together, and spoil the business by giving the public a sur feit. It was thus with the JIUick Vrtmk., the White Favn. the opera boufl'e, , and the blonde burlesques, aud it is thus with the Cardiff giant. There was a suspicion of humbug about that monster from the first, that served, however, to whet curiosity aud to cause a steady flow cf "currency" into the treasury of its proprietors. But soon duplicate giants began to appear in alarming" numbers, until no one was able to toll which whs the simon pure," and by the time that the whole business of manufacturing this "relic of re mote antiquity" was exposed, tho giant busi ness had almost ceased to be a paying specu lation, in the centros of civilization at least. The makers of the original Cardiff giant, however, appear to think that there Is money in the thing yet, for they publish a card in a Chicago paper announcing their readiness to furnish any number to order on the original model, and it is possible that there may be some few people in the interior who do not read the newspapers, or who are hard up for an excitement, who will be satisfied to invent their money to see these masterpieces of American art, under tho belief that they are importaut evidences of tho truth of the Mosaic account of the creation and early ages of the world. Indeed, we almost regret that the Cardiff humbug was ever exposed, as it afforded zealous theologians such an excellent opportunity to back up Moses against those troublesome follows, the geologists and others, who will insist that the science of the Decalogue is defective. - A vwuiix of tho llevolution and the war of lSli was yesterday received on the floor of the House of Bepresentallves at Washington, where he excited much interest. The name of this old soldier ia John Kitts, who was bora in this State in 1702, and served through the war of the llevolution, being present at the surrender of Cornwallis at Yorktown. He also carried a musket during the war of 1812, and would doubtless have, "fit into the Re bellion" if his advanced age had not restrained his patriotio impuhjes. This old gentleman must be one of the most aged of the few re maining veterans who saw the birth of the nation and assisted in 'winning our independence. His career covers ' our whole national history, and he has been a spectator of the mighty changes that have taken place since he shouldered his musket and went out nearly a hundred years ago to fight the red-coats, with probably but little idea of what he was doing, and im pressed by mingled feelings of patriotism and a young man's longing for the excitement of the battle-field. We are not , informed whether Mr. Kitts has made it a point to vote regularly for every President from Washing ton to Grant, but as all the veterans are dis tinguished by this trait, it is to be presumed that he has not . omitted to perform his duty in this respect as a Revolutionary soldier should. The House of Representatives paid Mr. Kitts a proper compliment by extending to him the privileges of the floor, and we hope that he may continue in health and spirits long enough to participate in the oen tennial anniversary of the signing of the De claration of Independence that will be held in this city a few years hence. Yestebimy in the National House of Re presentatives, the Honorables Benjamin F, Butler and S. S. Cox enacted one of those little Congressional farces that serve to create some amusement both in and out. of the House and to relieve the dreary monotony of the ordinary proceedings, but without, we are sorry to say, increasing the ptiMift respect for the participants. "Sunset" called Ben jamin a "bomb-proof soldier," which was considered to be aju iinputaJioa oq tfee pj sonal valof and military record of the "hero of Fort Fisher and Butch Gap," and an ex cellent joke, as jokes go in Congress. Butlef, however, if not a great soldier, is something of a joker, and is more than a match even for the brilliant "Sunset" at this sort of thing, so he merely told S. H. Cox to "shoo fly," and Cox got so angry that he evidently had a desire to turn the farce into a tragedy by cutting out the "lights" of Butler, wheri bis friends succeeded in carrying hinr off and calming his excitement by the administration of a dose of brandy and soda. This litftlo scene was no doubt very amusing, bnt it was not particularly creditable, and it suggests the idea that it is about time the opponents of the irrepressible Butler had found some other means of abuse than references to bis military career. The publio are just a little tired of hearing "spoons." "Fort Fisher," and "Dutch Gap" dragged in on all occasions by persons vhe find themselves unable to com pete with Lntler in any other way.
