I11IS DAILY EVENING TELEGRAPH. PHILADELPHIA, TUESDAY, JULY. 5, 1870
PUBLI8HED EVERT AFTERNO ON (SUNDAYS BXCBPTED), AT TIIE EVENING TELEGRAPH BUILDING, No. 108 8. THIRD STREET, PHILADELPHIA. TUESDAY, JULY 5, 1870. OCR NATIONAL ANNIVERSARY. The adoption of the Declaration of Indo vtendenee by the American Congress on the 4 th of July, 177C, was a perfeotly unique in cident. Nothing fciurilar to it had ever oc curred before in the world's history, and nothing like it of the same importance is likely to occur ngain. Other peoples have grown from barbarism to civilization, from weakness to strength, through centuries of development that formed the national char acter and formed the system of govern ment suited to it; but the founders of the American republic found themselves called upon to vote a nation into existence first, then to conquer for it the right to exist, and lastly to decide what form of government would be most likely to make it honored abroad, to develop its resources and to make its people great, prosperous, and happy. If they succeeded, the Declaration of Independence would be a charter of liberties for all mankind, while if they failed their pretensions would but excite the ridicule of the world, their act would be declared treason, and their lives would pay the forfeit of their temerity. The men who deliberated upon the Declaration of Indepen dence, however, felt that the time had ar rived for the New World to shake off the fet ters of the Old, and for a final protest against the doctrine of the divine rights of kings that for centuries had checked the growth of liberty in Europe. The principles enunci ated by the Declaration were responded to with enthusiasm by the people, who felt thatjit now remained with them to confirm the words of their representatives, and that a national existence was something better worth fight ing for than the mere redress of grievances, that if redressed in the fullest manner would still leave them in subjection to a tyrannical foreign power. The contest was fought, and the great American republic from an idea be came a fact. Europe watched with eager interest the result of an experiment that, if successful, was fraught with most momentous consequences to mankind. The experiment did succeed, and in the short space of ninety years an empire that rivals that of Home in its grandeur has been established, and, having proved its power both at home and abroad, it is at once the object of the respect and admi ration of the world. In a few years more a century will have passed away since that little company of brave, far-sighted statesmen signed the Declaration of Independence in the State House at Philadelphia, and then the world will be invited to participate with ns, on the spot of the nation's birth, in the grandest cele bration of Independence Day that has oc curred since the day itself. Tho centennial anniversary will be an event only second in importance to the signing of the Declaration of Independence itself. Other nations have invited the world to contribute to and to visit exhibitions of art and industry, but none of them has ever been able to ask the partici pation of every nation on the surface of the globe in such an imposing colebration as that which will take place in this city on the 4 th of July, 1P7C It is not altogether a matter for congratu lation that many of the old-time observances of the Fourth of July have fallen somewhat iuto disuse. The Rebellion served to npset many of our old-fashioned customs and notions, and since the suppression of the Re bellion there has been a growing disposition to abate something of the pomp and parade that were once a necessary feature of Inde pendence day. The younger generation, of coarse, indulges in the burning of an un limited amount of gunpowder upon the shrine of liberty, but citizens of mature years are generally glad to escape the noise and bustle of the city, if possible, by passing the day in the country or at the seaside. On strictly rational principles there is certainly nothing blamable in this, bat it is certain that the old explosive enthusiasm of the Fourth of July served to impress upon the minds of both old and young ideas with regard to the origin of the anniversary that ought not to be allowed to pass into neglect. The celebration of the Fourth in this city yesterday was unusually quiet. There was no military parade, owing to the neglect of Couu cils to make an appropriation for the purpose, and the few ceremonials that wore indulged in were not of a character to make any particu lar impression on the popular imagination. This is to be regretted; for while many per sons rejoiced in the at least partial cessation of noise, many more missed what ought to be a grand feature of the day. We hope that in future we will at least have a parade and oration. The first will make the streets attractive, and will cause an appropriate excitement in the hearts of those patriots who cannot con veniently spend the day out of town; and tho latter, even if it does not contain anything but the oft-repeated commonplaces, and the accustomed spread-eagleism that is character istic of Fourth of July orations, will at least serve to impress upon the minds of our citi zens the fact that the adoption of the Decla ration of Independence by the Continental Congress was one of the greatest events, not only in this nation's, but in the world's his tory. THE EXCISE LAW IN NEW YORK. One of the fruits of the Democratic triumph in New York last year was a modification of the Excise law, and the reconstruction of the Hoard of Excise Commissioners so as to give the Democrats a working majority of the members, as well as the substitution of a Democratic for a Republican Superintendent of Tolice. Soon after this 'reform" the San day liquor selling, which had been broken up, was recommenced in all portions of the city of New York, end innumerable scenes of de bauchery and riot were enacted. Matters went from bad to worse so rapidly that even the Democratic Board of Excise Commis sioners took the alarm, and they appealed to those who were concerned in the liquor business to close their bars on Sunday, from motives of policy if for nothing else. This appeal being unheeded by many innkeepers, more Blringent measures were resofted to. The aid of the Democratic Superintendent of Police was invoked. At midnight on Saturday last he opened his campaign, and between that time and Mon day morning he made twenty-six arrests fr excise violations, sixty forintoxication, twenty for tlriiDkenness and disorderly conduct, and forty for disorderly conduct. As a result the .".d of July was a quiet Sunday in New York, there was an unaccustomed absence of serious nffrnvs, and the public were taught that oven in the citadel of Democracy it is possible for Democratic officials to enforce the Excise law. PHILADELPHIA FREE. TR A DKUS. Iris alleged that Colonel William H. Thomas, the disoiganizing-ltepublican, Abolitiou Democratic, Conservative-Chase, and Radical-Reform candidate for Congress in the Fourth district, is one of the most decided free-traders in Pennsylvania. If this be true, it is the most serious objection that could be urged against his election. The tariff ques tion is rapidly becoming the most important issue in national politics. A small wing of the Republican organization hns drifted off into the free-trade camp, and they are in spired with an earnest hope that, through the aid of tho bulk of the Democracy, they will once more remand the nation back to a condition of industrial servitude. If they can pick up a few more Republican-Democratic recruits, they hope to remodel the tariff during the sessions of the next Congress according to the mo3t approved plan that Birmingham, Manchester, and Sheffield manufacturers and British iron masters can devise. If this scheme sueccids no State in the Union will be half as seriously damaged as Pennsylvania, and no city will be so irretrievably injured as Philadelphia. By manufactures Philadelphians live, move, and have their being. If their productive industries are stricken down tens of thousands of Philadelphia houses will become tenant less, and hundreds of thousands of tho present inhabitants of the city will be compelled to seek their daily bread in some more favored locality. It is not worth while for a Philadelphian to stop to argue the ab stract question of free trade or protection. Let him look into the workshops, and see how many of his fellow-beings are dependent for their livelihood upon the industrial arts, and let him reflect upon the disastrous influ ence which approximate free trade always hus exercised upon diversified American industry. No dry lessons of political economy will be necessary to teach him that for this city there is but one true doctrine, and for this State but one true policy. All ordinary partisan distinctions sink into utter insignifi cance when an issue so vital to this com munity as protection is forced into a Con gressional canvass. It is a terrible mistake to suppose that protection benefits mainly employing manufacturers. It matters but little whether a few thousands are added to or a few thousands taken from their store. But to tens of thousands of operatives no political controversy possesses one-tenth as much interest as the plain question whether they are to be permitted to earn their liveli hood in the pursuits for which they have been qualified by long and expensive train ing, or whether they are to be compelled to abandon the anvil and loom and take up, after a probationary period of semi-starvation, plows which they do not know how to handle. The Philadelphian who seeks to im pose upon them this cruel necessity is a pub lic enemy, and he should not be trusted for one instant in any public capacity in which he would be able to betray our citizens. We may stand the infliction of an incompetent, or a dishonest, or a rebellious Representative without beiBg very seriously damaged, pro vided he is faithful on the doctrine .of protection, but to send a free-trader to Congress at this juncture would be to perpetrate a blunder worse than a crime, which, in its immediate and ultimate results, would prove immeasurably injurious. When Great Britain makes up her Parliament of the Fenian leaders, when the United States Senate is composed of the aristocracy of Eng land, when we put our city government under the absolute control of the most desperate roughs and corruptionists of New Y'ork, we should also send a free-trader to represent the Fourth district in Congress but not before. There is a possibility, which we hope will prove a certainty, that the Senate will yet re consider the decision of last week with regard to the income tax. The Senators opposed to the tax who were absent when the vote to continue it was taken, are indignant at the mean trick by which the popular wishes were defeated. Senator Conkling, who was sick in bed when the vote was taken, has announced his intention to call up the subject again, and, unless some of the Senators who pro fessed to be opposed to the tax follow the ex ample of Abbott and Anthony, and change their votes, there will be a majority against the outrage in a full Senate. In view of the refusal of the Senate to abandon the franking privilege, the continu ance of the income tax is a direct insult to the nation, and it will be so regarded. It is high time that some of the men in Congress were made to understand that they are the servants and not the masters of the people; and the persistent efforts made in tho Senate and House to impose an unnecessary and pe culiarly galling burden for the sake of raising a few million dollars of revenue that can readily be dispensed with, combined with the refusal of Congress to curtail its own extra vagances, is likely to produce some unpleasant consequences when some of the present members of the Senate and House of Repre sentatives offer themselves for re-election. A CROSS THE OCEAN. The Dnnntlet and Ihf Cumbria Their Oceanle Kare. The creat ocean race between the American yacht Dauntless and the English yacht Cambria promises to be one of the leading sensations of the season. After considerable newspaper discussion, Mr. Jnmcs Gordon Bennett, Jr.. late owner of the Henrietta, succeeded in nrraneinpf a race for his new yacht, the Dauntless, with the Cambria, owned bv Mr. Ashbury, a very prominent Eng lish yachtsman, The late races between the American yacht Sappho, owned by Mr. Douglas, and the Cambria, in which the stars and stripes were triumphant three times in succession, are matters ot history. The Dauntless and the Cambria arrived at (ueenstown. Ireland, on the 'JSih of last month, and their owners have been the guests of the Royal Cork Yacht Club. They arranged to start vesterdny, at 2 o'clock, lroiu Daunt Head buoy, about thirteen miles east of the old Head of kinsali. and a short distance from (uecus town Harbor. In order to irivc ocean 'steamers every chance of recoifniziufi them at night, the Dauntless Las arranged to burn blue lights. at her bow and stern, otid fire three blue rockets in quick succession, and the Cambria will do the sunie, but with red )iibt$. Caplalu Martin F. Lyons, who soiled the Henrietta In her ocean race, lift New York about a month aoto take charge of the Dauntlecs. It is generally be lieved that Mr. Ashbury has secured trie ser vices of a well-known Liverpool merchant cap tain, who is w ell acquainted with the various currents and wind of tlie Atlantic. The following i a short sketch of the two yachts: The Dauntless was buiit by John Forsyth, at Mjstic, Ct., for Dexter Bradford, of Newport, ui.'d named L'lliroiulelle. and about three years npo wns purchased by James Gordon Bennett, Jr.. and rechristened the Dauntless. In the fall ot IbOfs she w as taken to Nyack, and underwent extensive alterations in the yards of Messrs. 11. iSc.l. Palmer. Thirteen feet were added to her length, her mainmast was moved five feet for ward, aud her foremast seven. Her steeriujr apparatus is Jackson's patent, and she has also two .patent wrenches for hoisting canvas. l!er dimensions arc: Length over all, 127 feet: water line, 117 feet; depth of hold, Wr, feet; breadth of beam, 2f feet: ni asurcmcnt, 2(18 feet, by New York Yacht Club rule? ; her mainmast, 10 feet: maintepmast, CO feet, making 150 feet from deck to truck: foremast, SI' feet: foretop, 42 feet, or 181 feet from deck to truck: main boom. 71$ feet, and main gaff, WJ feet. She spreads about 26$'.) square feet ot canvas, aud is manned by a captain, sailing-master, mate, boatswain, two quartermasters, and twelve men before the mast. Snc will probably carry more men during the race, and the club rules entitle her to carry thirty-seven. The Dauntless is well known as one of the best sea boats in tMe Ne w York Yacht Club, which was manifested in the cruise of the squadron in 18C8. 1 he Cambria is a keel schooner, built of oak, with teak topsides. Her interior littings are remarkably rich and beautiful, aud in good taste. She has twenty-one tons of ballast smelted and run into her timbers, and has also four tons of lead bolted to her keel. Under sail sl e spreads a vast area of canvas nud works in the wind with the ease and facility of a weather vare. Her best points are being sharp and quick in stays, lying close to the wind, and being fast in light breezes. By tho wind that is, close-hauled she has gaff-topsails bent to the ordinary spars: hut in sailing free she has much longer and ligher and more Uexible yards aloft, and the sail of l.ghter canvas, of course, clubs out a considerable distance. Her bowsprit is a very peculiar spar, and with the jibboom and flying jib-boom is all in one stick, and rigs in aud out at the option of the sailing-master. She is 248 tons, New York Yacht Club measure ment, and 188 tons Royal Tliame3 Yacht Club measurement, and was built by Ratsey, of Cowes. at the Isle of Wight, in 1S08. She is a fine type of the deep and narrow English model, and in external appearance bears a resemblance in stiffness aud stability to a Cunard steamer. It can hardly be said that the Cambria is as graceful aud charm ing in her pose upon the water as the mo.iority of American schooners, and this is simply because the English are willing to sacri fice anything to secure the full embodiment of their ideas as to speed. Her dimensions are: Length (from stempost to sternpost), 103 feet; beam, 21 feet: depth of hold, 11 feet; draught of water, 12 feet; mainmast (hounds to deck), til feet; foremast, 50 feet 0 Inches; maiu boom, Gl feet; main gaff, 33 feet 9 inches; foro gaff, 25 feet: bowsprit (outboard stem), 35 feet; main topsail, 35 feet 0 inches; foretopsail, 32 feet S inches: niaintopsail yard, 32 feet; foretopsail yard, 2! feet.

Mr. Morrill argued that the proposed chunge In the present system of collecting the revenue at Custom houses would prove a dangerous experiment in va rious ways, among others In subjecting the Hoveru ment to losses in the transit of goods across the country by railway stnash-ups. Mr. Chandler had read by the Clerk certain sug gestions of the Secretary of the Treasury In regard to the regulation of appraisements an1 the inspec tion of import, which he proceeded to i ml 'r.se. He spoke cl the dltllculty of Identity of inerchaadlse in its transportation, In bond, from New Y'ork to inte rior cities, and the liability of the Government to lose In the substitution of Inferior goods for those of greater value; for Instance, ginghams for silks. lie considered the present system more conve nient, and regarded the proposition as equivalent to putting all custom houses ou wheels, and carting goods over the country. Mr. ltayard opposed the amendment for economi cal reasons, as creating numerous olllciaU in va rious cltii-s, aud because it would vastly increase the opportunities for fraud on the revenue.
