Nation. i " TfcS lTeftidebt, from whom some pontons we confess we were of the nomber expootei some nhhifitance iu the work of reforming the ciTil service, has been dnriug the past few months doing a good deal to aggravate some of its worst evils. The Hickles appointment watt B'artliiJg, bat Sickles had at least a "war record." That of Mr. Murphy to the colleo-'tnt-aiin nf this tmrt wah the first ooea indica- 1 -' r i - . . tion the public had that the hopes excited m the earlier "days of the adrniuMtratiou were going to be disappointed. Mr. Murphy's sole - nlaim to General (IrADt's confidence rested on the fact that he was au active, energetia, un scrupulous New York politician of the "fast" tjpe, versed in all the arts and devices peculiar to his clasn. lie belongs to a school which, during the past six or seven years, has amused and dis gusted . all l intelligent people in this city by its profe-tsious of intense sympathy with the great "moral ideas" of the ' llepublican party, and with its horror of trea son and corruption, bnt which finds no diffi culty In famishing Tammany Hall with plenty ' of candidates for its minor offices, and which, nrViild f rnwniTM nn Fink nnd TarAHri in nnhlin. ' is only too glad to dnnk their champagne in private, and laugh with them over the nps and downs of their common profession. In deed, Mr. Murphy's love of horses, and his thorough knowledge of the art of using "offices" for party purposes, are the enly rea sons, so far as our kuowledge goes, whioh anybody has ever had the audacity to put forward 1 for putting him at the head of the , custom bouse through which the Government reoeives by far the larger portion of its revenuo. Nince his ap pointment we have heard no complaints whatever from the corrupt and disreputable band who form the Republican committees in this city of the "mismanagement" of the party, and we are not surprised to hear that the unfortunate clerks, whose salaries are already insufficient to support their families decently or to save them from crime, are at this writing undergoing an assessment, nomi nally to help to save the country from trai tors, but in reality, as far as this city is con cerned, to prevont one gang of peculators from being ousted by another. This has been followed more recently by wholesale dismissals in Missouri of officers who were so ill-advised as to side with the S';hnrz wing of the llepublican party. It would have been perfectly proper and reason able to have forbidden all Federal oflioers to participate in the contest. As between two sections of Republicans about whose fidelity to the fundamental ideas of tha party organi zation there is no question, and who have separated either on questions of strictly State interest, with which the administration has nothing to do, and on which the President can hardly pretend to have an opinion to which Missouri men are bound to defer, or on questions of Federal policy on whioh the Republican party in Congress has hitherto found no difficulty in differing the duty of the administration is simply one of neu trality, and neutrality it ought to enjoin on all its otlicials, u it enjoins anytning at all, It is hardly necessary to say to rational men that no party was ever yet saved from defeat or rain by these devices. If its ideas do not retain sufficient hold over the people to make its triumph certain, the dismissal of luke warm or hostile clerks and postmasters will not save it; and it is a fact worth remarking that, ever since tne present tenure or. omje was introduced, the vigor with which this moans of insuring victory has been used has '. ' , always been in the inverse ratio of the party . strength with the public. w nenever tne ad c ' ministration begins to apply the whip sav aelv to the poor jades in the publio offices, it ia almost a Kure sion that its reliance on better things is growing weak. "Party dis- . cipline in the custom-nouse and tne mar glials' offices and the Treasury was nevor 1 se strict as in Buchanan's day, when the enemy was at the gates. In the Cabinet, there are two firm friends of civil service re- luriu ittu wen wuu uio uuuviuveu luuv, until the American people insist on it, we , , need not look for much else from a change " of parties than a change in the nature and ": " instruments of corruption we mean Mr. Fish and Mr. Cox.' The possibility of making much change for the better in his departmeut was taken out of Air. JFioh's hands at the very outset by Mr. .Washburne, who, having been appointed to the State Department ad interim, as a compliment, for one short fort night, seized that opportunity of filling all the consulates and other offices with his own , ' erAfttnrna Ami baneers-on mi nnnrrtOAdnnhAr! v ; : performance, which might have prepared eveybody, and did prepare most people, for ' the exhibition which he is now making of himself in Vans. Mr. isn came into omoe, therefore, tied nana ana loot, ana sinoe then , : , the Tresidfent, whos appanage the diplo .' : matio . service is, has apparently labored .i under no restraint. The appointment of - bickles and dismissal of Motley are acts '- which do not admit of explanation, and for wmcu it wouiu Do juuicrous 10 apologise , " ; ' ., Mr. Cox has fared better. He has managed r, .to introduce into his department and par ,i ticularly the Patent Office and Census Jiu : reau by simply putting in foroo a law wkioh his predecessors disregarded, a real test of the intelligence and education of candidates for office, by substituting a lioaa-fide examl nation for a chat and a smoke, and the result is that he has now a set of employes suoh as the United States has not seen in its civil ser- ' vice for many a long day. It is needless te , , ' say that this has made him intensely obnoxi ' oua to "tne men inside politics, wno are " laboring zealously for his removal, aud whose hands Lis , colleague in the ' Treasury ,. ',. strengthens very. materially by studiously re- pudiating all desire for a change, and giving up his great army of ' subordinates to be , "rotated," intimidated, and cheated, as the sub-managers of the party and the more un scrupulous Congressmen may please, and pre tending to look on this seething mass of ras cality and corruption as a necessary incident . of "democracy. . From the President at leant ' Mr. Cox was entitled to look fer hearty and contiguous support, and wt are not prepared to say tnat ne has accoraea Dim no support; " t bat jpfcen we Bee him compel Mr. Cox, on the '. request of intriguers, to accord clerks a se , , oond vacation in one year, under full pay, in order to enable t&eiu to go Home and vote. when they had been previously informed that ,, . they . must either take their vacation at the Voting period or forfeit their pay if they a second time withdrew from their duties, we ' find it very hard to say what it is the publio ' tervioe owes him, either as regard its eSi ' ' cienoy or discipline. 1 It is bad enough to ' ' allow one of fcu secretaries to make the Trea snry a hot-bed of low jobbery, but it is worse not to stand by the others who try to do better. Now, we do not mean to say that the worst results of peisistence in this policy are yet visible. The Democratic party still manages to behave in such fashion as to keep the Re publicans in power almost in spite of them selves.' It would be hard for them to get into any scrape from whioh the Demooratio chiefs would not da a good deal to extrioate them. But one does not need to be a sage to see that even Democratic support is wearing out, that we must have new ideas and new plans, and that those new plans must be questions of practical reform. We mast have a party which will reform the civil service, and so take out of politics the great element of that con option whioh is day by day appalling the public; we must-have revenue reform, and thus dry up another sonrce of corruption, from which Congress is the most direct sufferer, but the effects of whioh on the industry of the country are also most pernicious, we must, too, have minority representation, which will give that half it is only a slight exaggeration to call it so of the voting popu lation which is now excluded from all direct share in the Government, and whioh contains a great deal of what is most thoughtful, con scientious, and intelligent ia the population 1 ' a chance of being beard in tne legislatures. We must have the Cabinet offioers on the floor of the House, so that the country may have fome better means of finding out what the Executive is doing than tne gossip or Washington correspondents and the ex parte statements of hostile and expectant Congress men. There is a generation growing up rapidly to whom the controversies on which the Republican parly is trying to live came only as a tradition oi a state oi tniogs oi which they have had no experience, and which will not be much longer amused by catch-words, and to whom the old po itician and his esquire the old editor are becoming a pair of ancient and diverting persons, whose battle-cries are curious, but not exciting. TnE WAR QUESTION AND ITS POLITI GAL FEATURES. From the K: F. Herald. i The report of M. Jules Favre on his mis sion to Prussian headquarters, snows more clearly what was apparent before the im placable character of the war on the part of Prussia. It is now, to all intents and pur poses, a war against the republic of France and against republican institutions ana ideas. It is just such a war as the Holy Alliance of rxonarcbs waged against tne first l'ronon re public, only la the present case the King of Prussia is fighting it single-handed and has no aimed allies, though he has the good-will and moral power of tne crowned beads and aristocracies of Europe to back him. It is the same spirit which led the English monarchy, the French Imperial Government and other monarchical governments of the Old World to favor the Rebellion in i the United States, with the hope of seeing this ereat republic destroyed. Ibis course is natural enough, however impolitic it may turn out; for republicanism is a standing protest iicaiust the ruling monarchical families, ab folutism and privileged orders, whioh regard the people as their inheritance just as men do their real eetote. Count Bismarck has said that Prussia is not makiDK war on the republic it we can rely upon the reports he has been careful to reiterate that on several occasions, as if he were conscious of the enormity of fighting the liberal ideas of the age and saw the neces sity of appeasing the rising indignity of poudlar sentiment in the world. But his acts, or the acts of bis master, liing William, snow the oontrary show, in fact, that the object is to break down the repuhiio In Jb ranee. King William does not fear France so much as he does the republic No doubt he is greatly embarrassed as to what government can be established there and the part ha should take in deciding such an important and delicate question. Though be made war at first against the Bonapartes, and though it was said he did not wage war . against , the French nation or people, only as a necessity to put down Isapoleon, whom he designated as the disturber of tne peace of tne world, there seems little doubt that be would now gladly restore the Bonaparte empire, if that were possible, or he would reoogmze an Ur leanist or any other royal pretender rather than see the republic established. But he cannot see the way clear to any such result, The consequence is he continues this fright fully bloody war against the French nation inter the first and only avowed object was at tained. It might have been possible to have main tained an imperial or royal government in France had the King of Prussia negotiated a peace with Napoleon ' immediately after the battle of Sedan. Or u the Emperor had de clined to negotiate and preferred to remain a prisoner in the hands of the Prussians until the war Bbould be absolutely closed, either from fear of returning to Paris or to em bar rakB tne situation ot things, there was the regency to open negotiations with. Had the King acted on the tpar of the moment then he might have treated with the regeuoy in Pans, or, at all events, before it left the soil of France. But after the Emperor beoame a voluntary prisoner for he oould have fled to Belciufet and the Empress, with the Prince Imperial and the whole of the imperial gov ernment, bad abandoned France, what was there to treat with but the provisional gov. ernment of the newly proclaimed republio? The opportunity was lost to' the King, and the prosecution of the war from bis stand point then became necessary. The oharaoter of the war was changed at once. It was, as we said before, no longer against the Bona partes, for they had all fled, but against the nation ana the republic Our remarks with regard to the embarrass ing situation of affairs caused by the hostility of the Prussian monarch to republicanism apply also to the great powers which have refused to recognize the republio. England, Russia, and Austria must be blamed, and especially must England, for the continuance of the war and the present embarrassing situ ation. Had these powers, or had England even, followed the example of the United States, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, and Portu gal, in'ieoognizing the republican provisional government, Prussia oould not have refused to treat with it And why should they not have done so f It was the only government possible. It was to all intents and purposes a de facto government, to whioh the whole French nation gave virtual adhesion and sup port. Had It been a kingly government in stead of a republican one, neither England nor tne other powers would nave found any difficulty in according it recognition. We may regret that Jules Favre and his colleagues did not accept the terms Bismarck said he was willing to grant for an armistioe, exacting and humiliating us they were. But why was the Prussian monarch so inexorable? He bad nothing to fear.- His position gave him ample guarantees without demanding humiliating terms. His conduct has all i the appearance of a purpose to crush the republic by e mbanwsMug its government and reduoing the French people to the tnont miserable con dition. He may fail in this, however; for the very means be uses to that end may arouse the heroism of the nation and consolidate the republic Why, after all, need there be so roach fear of a Frenoh republic? There is no more conservative government in the world than that ot the United States or of Switzer land. The Frenoh of the present day are more instructed in the matter of government than tteir ancestors. They have been taught by long and sad experience to appreciate liberal institutions, ana under a republio bow they ,may become a blessing to Europe as well as Spacefill and prosperous. among themselves, ct them have a chance. They are among the most advanced civilized nations of the world, and to attempt to destroy them would be an outrage, and must reaot fearfully upon their implacable enemies. Let the French follow the example of the great Amerioan re public, and assimilate their institutions as much as possible to ours, and then they may establish a lasting republican government. There is no reason why suoh a government should not be the means of Beonring the pence of Europe, as well as its progress in liberty and civilization. THE PHILADELPHIA OUTRAGE. from tk$W, iy World. - ; " ' r- - It is difficult to restrain ourselves witW the limits of decorum in what it becomes us to say of the outrage perpetrated in Philadel phia bv the United States Marshal, under color of the Congressional eleotion law. We have already given some of the reasons for regarding this law as palpably unconstitu tional. That it is a naked usurpation of powers not vested in Congress we entertain j - - rr.i - - i .T . . no oouui. iiie construction ana operation which the Federal authorities have given it in Philadelphia prove the correctness of our strictures. Here is a law whioh undertakes to authorize marshals to keep the peace in the streets of a city at eleotions by employing a military force to displace the - local police authorities and the constitutional provision under which this power is claimed is a clause antheming Congress to regulate the winner of .holding an election of members of that body I It is superfluous to say that this provision was never . designed to comprehend . anything but a power - to deteimine whether representatives in Congress shall be chosen in districts or by g neral ticket, and now the votes shall be received, when there exists any reason for changing the State regulations on these points. But the popular tribunal, to whioh the press addresses itself, will not author! tatively determine the validity of this law, We confine ourselves therefore, at present, to the avowed construction and operation given to this law in Philadelphia. There can be no doubt that the . Marshal acted under pi eviouB instructions from the President a military man, given to. military methods and we trust that not a moment will pass after the assembling of Congress without a can I or those instructions, jjur, with or without instructions, the Marshal undertakes to appoint deputies to keep the peace at aa election, and to back them by a military force, i his he j usuries under a section of the act which purports to clothe him with the power of appointing deputies tokeep the peace, while it is in another section that the Presi dei. t is authorized to employ the army and navy to enforce the general provisions of the act. Let the people then direct their attention to the fact that Congress has interfered to sweep into the bands of the Marshal of the United States, on his sole judgement of the supposed exigency, the whole control of the peace of any "city containing more than twenty thou sand inhabitants," aDd to authorize him to fire upon and kill in the streets people whom the said Marshal judges to be disturbing the peace. Let us suppose that the commanding cihcerpf the marines had ordered his men to fire on the crowd in the streets of Philadel- hia, and that death had ensued. Unless all aw in Pennsylvania is prostrated under the military heel of ueneral Grant, the officer would be indicted and tried for murder. He must then justify under some order; and he. pioceedsto justify under an order given to bim by the Marshal to fire on the citizens in the street engaged, in the Marshal s judg ment, in breaking the peace at an eleotion! -Can an thing be more monstrous? Yet this is exactly what this act of Congress comes to. according to its administration in Philadel phia and the understanding of his powers and duties by the Marshal. The people of this country cannot have forgotten that, if there is one principle of the common law more sacred, important, and indispensable than another, it is that inflexible rule which re quires the employment of military force in the preservation of the publio peace, to be under the control of responsible civil magistrates. When, in the Lord George Gordon riots of 1780, all London was for days at the mercy of a mob and the military had to be called out, not a bayonet was lifted or a shot fired or an indi vidual arrested by the military tfntil the King. in his capacity of supreme civil magistrate, had given the necessary orders for the soldiers to act; , and our own laws are saturated with the principle that death in flicted by a soldier, in the preservation of the peace, is murder, unless the order to inflict it is given on tfu spot by the magistracy in whom the law has specially lodged that power. Do our rulers at Washington imagine that the people will to erate this power in the bands of a marslial, and that a marsliai can be authorized to use a military feroe under the pretext of keeping the peace ? Do they suppose it is to be tolerated that United Btatis marshals shall be empowered to "arrest for any offence or oreael of tne peace com mitted in their view," under a Constitution which gives no cognizance whatever : of breaches of the peace to either the military or civil authorities of the United States? : If they do, they have something to learn con cerning tho laws ofthe land and the spirit of the people. We advise all who may be con cerned in the direction of soldiers to keep the peace in our streets to remember, when they proceed to use foroa, that behind them stands the hangman duly . appointed by law for all who oommit murder. :., Enough for to-day.- This matter will not be allowed to rest. Our people will act as be comes a oomuiunity of law and order, pos sessed of the needful means for preserving them and protecting citizens in their civil privileges and the safety of their lives. .. i BPEOIAL.
