FRIDAY, APRIL 14, 1871. rr tub Evbnino Telegraph, from Its orl&lnal establishment, has been In the receipt of telegra phic news from the New YorK Associated Press, Which consists of the Tribtine, Time, Herald, World, Sun, Journal of Commerce, Keening Post, Commercial Advertiser, and Evening Express. The succePB which has attended our enterprise Is, In itself, a sulllclent evidence of the freshness, full ness, and reliability of the news which we have received from this source. In March, 1S70, we entered Into a special contract by which The Evening Telegkaph has the exclusive use of the Dews furnished in the aftcnoon by the Associated Tress to Its own members, the Xorth American, In quirer, lsdner, Press, Age, Record, and German Demo crat, of this city, and the leading journals of the East, North, West, and South; and hereafter The Telb GR APH will be the only evenxnq paper published in this titv In which the afternoon despatches of the Asso ciated Press will appear. IWThe earliest regular edition of the The Evening Telegraph goes to press at IX o'clock, and the subsequent regular edlttons at 2tf, 8y, and 4)4- W henever there is important news of the com plications In Europe, extra editions will be Issued after this hour, and before the regular time for the early edition. ANOTHER LEGISLATIVE BLOW AT PHILADELPHIA. Tnis city has again be6n victimized by legis lation at the State Capitol, or rather the want of it. In the State Senate a bill was recently reported, providing for the transfer of the proceeds arising from licenses granted to tavern-keepers, brewers, etc, from the State Treasury to the various local county and city treasuries; but this wise and just provision was stricken from the bill, and in total disre gard of the custom prevailing elsewhere, the magnanimous Commonwealth continues to take all the sums derived from tavern licenses, while it leaves the tax-burdened city to pay the cost of maintaining the police force and supporting the inmates of the County Prison and the Almshouse ! A similar ques tion also came up in the lower branch of the Legislature recently, when the House of Cor rection bill was under consideration. It con tained a provision imposing for the support of that institution an additional tax of $50 on all amuseir-ent and liquor licenses granted in Philadelphia. This portion of the bill was bitterly opposed, however, by some of the members from this city; and after their oppo sition to the clause in question proved unsuc cessful, they revenged themselves by defeat ing the entire measure, although it had pre viously been approved, and asked for as a necessity, by the commissioners for building the House of Correction and by City Coun cils. The virtuous Sam Josephs led the raid against the increased tax on taverns, but he seems to have been supported by all the members from this city except Messrs. Dumbell, Griffiths, Johnson, Miller, and Smith; and the practical result of the late legislation in the Senate and Ilouse is not only to postpone the successful operation of the House of Correction, but to totally deprive the oity treasury of a source of revenue from which, under a proper sys tem, there should be derived enough money to support the Almshouse, County Prison, and Ilouse of Correction. The nation and the State will continue to replenish their coffers from the tax on liquors and the licenses for selling liquor, while the city must continue to sup port thousands of those who are made paupers and criminals by the liquor traffic, without deriving a penny from this source, or receiv ing a particle of pecuniary assistance from the National or State treasury. Of all the anomalies of legislation growing out of our complex system of government, this is the most unjust; and if the bulk of the legislators we send to Ilarrisburg cared a farthing for the city's interests, and had a faint concep tion of their true duties, such an unequal and oppressive method of distributing burdens and revenues would 6peedily be abolished. RESERVED SEATS. A case was tried yesterday in the Court of Common Pleas, before Judge Ludlow, which involved a question of fair dealing between the managers of a place of amusement and the public, and the statements of the case made respectively by the plaintiff and the defendants suggest the necessity for some more satisfactory nystecu with regard to re served seats than exists at present in any of our theatres or minstrel halls, except the Academy of Music. It seems that a gentle man purchased three tickets for a perform ance at one of the minstrel halls, which were accompanied by checks entitling the holders to seats if any were unoccupied. They were sot the regular reserved-seat checks, but were Bold under certain conditions which it is doubtful whether one purchaser out of a hun dred would fully understand, and the party holding them beine nimble to find seats left the house, and the next day demanded reparation at the box offioe. A compromise was offered which was not satisfactory, and the . case was earned into court, where the jury gave a ver dict for the plaintiff, upon the priaoiple, we eoppose, that the managers had no right to make such an ambiguous bargain with their guests, and that those who purchased coupon tickets were entitled to seats under any coa i ditions. The moral of this affair is that thera should be more fair dealing at all the places of amusement with regard to seating the , audlei.ee, for there is au infinite amount of annoyance caused at present owing to the expectations of ticket purchasers with regard to their right to seats not being realized. In all the regular theatres the orchestra or parquet seats are reserved for the holders of cheoks, and their price is well known, so that there is never any difficulty with regard to them. The orchestra circle or parquet circle is open to the publio at a stated prioe, with an extra charge for reserved seats, and this arrangement is one of the principal sources of trouble and annoyance. Several rows of seats are usually marked as "taken," and those who do not hold checks have to seat themselves in the back rows. As it not unfreqnently happens that many of the seats marked "taken" are not ocoupied, the pur chasers of simple admission tickets who imagine themselves entitled to the best places they can find that have not been secured in advance by other parties are dissatisfied, and imagine themselves unfairly dealt with; and it occasionally happens that some sturdy indi vidual takes possession of a choice place and refuses to remove from it until threatened with arrest. All this difficulty and annoyance could easily be avoided if every visitor to a theatre were presented with a check desig nating the seat to be occupied for the even ing. Or it would perhaps be equally Eatisfactory if the tickets for the orchestra or parquet seats were sold with checks, and the other parts of the house thrown open to those who pay a simple ad mission fee. At any rate, there should be one established price and one established rule for each division of the house, s that it would be impossible for the most thick-headed visi tor to be under an erroneous impression about the extent of the privileges he pays for. At the Academy of Musio all the seats in the parquet, parquet circle, and dress circle are checked, and the arrangement works so well there, and saves so many unpleasant controversies, that some similar plan should be adopted at all respectable places of amuse ment. The situation in and about Paris continues unchanged, although there are indications that the Communists will shortly come to terms of some sort with the Versailles Gov ernment. In the meantime they are perpe trating acts of vandalism so utterly disgrace ful that they put to shame those who censured the Germans for besieging and bombarding Paris because it wsr the "eye of civilization.' The Communists have sacked several of the churches, including the Cathedral of Notre Dame, and now they have determined to de molish the famous column in the Place Ven dome, on the ground that it is a barbarous monument, a symbol of brute force and false glory, and a negation of fraternity. A 11 of these reasons are so absolutely correot that if the Communists of Paris were anything else than what they are, the world might look with satisfaction upon the demolition of a monu ment which more than any other in Paris has ministered to the false love of glory which was one of the in spiring causes of the disastrous war that has just been concluded. The destruction of his torical monuments and national works of art, however, by a sudden freak of au infu riated mob of Parisian Bed Republicans is something that must be deplored by all right thinking persons, and unless the Versailles Government speedily gets possession of Paris, the whole French people will learn to regret that the Germans did not hold the city until a government strong enough to maintain its authority was ready to take possession of it. Not the least of the crimes of the first French revolution was the demolition of national monuments of the highest interest and value, and the individuals who are now endeavoring to inaugurate a new Ileign of Terror appear to be anxious to emu late their illustrious predecessors in this as in other particulars. The evident desire of the Germans to injure Paris as little as possible is certainly a favorable contrast to the per formances of the Frenchmen who now hold possession of the unhappy city; and if the present condition of affairs continues much longer, it will be no wonder if the very name of a republic is held in abhorrence by a vast majority of the French people. The Government of New South Wales, one of the British dependencies, turns a deaf ear to the free-trade teachings of the political economists who write in the interest of the British manufacturers. It has recently pro posed an increase of the duties on nearly all. imported articles heretofore taxed, and an imposition of duties on some articles which have hitherto been on the free list. Thus John Bui's own oolonies repudiate his modern theories and like all wise and pro gressive countries, seek prosperity in pro tection. They understand the tricks of the drummers for British trade too well to be humbugged by them when they put on the robes of free-trade philosophers. MYSTERIOUS AFFAIR. Remarkable Disappearance of a New York Oiliclal. The New York Pest of last evening says: The removal of General William 11. Lawrence from the position of United States Pension Ageut in this city occasioned surprise and c em inent. Among his intimate friends, however, the cause of his displacement was well known to be his unexplained absence from the city for a long period, which rendered necessary the api oiutiutnt of a successor to perforin the duties of his office. On tbe 15i.li ot last month General Lawrence left this city for Chicago. The day before his departure he said to nis family, and also to ftveral friends, that he intended to visit Chi cago on some private business, and that he should be absent a week, or at the utmost ten days. About a week subsequently his wife received a letter from him, dated at Chicago, sayiiig tbat his absence would be prolonged a week longer; that , be was going upon some bui-liiees into the couutry, where he would be beyond the reach of pocial communication, aud that the must not be alarmed if tbe did not im mediately hear from blm. Since tbe receipt of tLis letter General Lawrence has been com pletely lotst to tbe knowledge of his friends. A telegraphic despatch sent to Chicago brought a i-t-uue that he left bis hotel at about tbe date ol bis letter, but tbat bis subsequent movemeuts were wholiy unknown to tho-e acquainted wiib. bim tLtre. Ibis disappearance can be accouuted for by bib li!tLd6 cnJy iiL'ou tbe grouud that he hi met with some accident or foul play. His ac counts as f ension Aeent are, as far as they have been examined, entirely correct. Just after he left a draft of $20,000," for the payment of pen sions, was sent to his olllce from the Treasury Department. As his signature "as necessary to Rive validity to tbe dralt, It conW not be used, and between $7000 and $8000 worth of checks sent In by pensioners, had to be protcpted at the Sub-Treasury. His absence continues so long, and being so Inexplicable, Colonel Doty was appointed to fill his place. Owing to the confuf ion arising from the Inter regnum, It was deemed best to suspend the busi ness of the office during this week, that the account mhiht be rt vised by the new incumbent. The payment of pension will be resumed next Monday. General Lawrence wore when he left a dia mond pin valued at $100 and a gold watch valued at $260. It Is also said that he carried considerable money with him. The conviction Is gaining ground among his friends that be has been murdered to obtain his valuables. It is .also said that be was occasionally subject to a uieease wnicu proaucea intense palH, ana nas rendered him at times temporarily Insane, even for a week at a time. It is posolbfe that he may have died In one of these paroxvstns, In some obscure country place, where his name and home were unknown. Ills family are employ ing detectives to unravel the mystery which en velopes his disappearance. THE LOCIIIEL STRIKE. The largest Iron "Works In Pennsylvania Idle Cause of the Strike Resolutions of the Labor Union. The strike at tbe Lochiel Iron Works still continues, and about 300 men are thrown out of employment and remain in idleness. The Presi dent of the company publishes a card, In which be explains the dilliculty. From his version it appears tbat six heats were required dallv, ex cept Saturday, when only five constituted a day's work. After the third heat last Saturday the heater first in turn refused to enter upon his duty, and was discharged by the company. The employes demanded bis reinstatement, which was refused, and being members of the Labor Union, a strike was ordered and carried out. Tbe company also allege that tbe advance of pig-iron, caused by tbe present suspension iu the coal region, without compensating advance of rails, has induced them to close tbe works for at least two months. The strike hastened the suspension, which has been under considera tion for some time past, aud was only delayed out of regard to tbe worklngmen, who will ex perience the greatest loss and suffering by the unfortunate condition of affairs. The following resolutions were adopted at a meeting of the Laoor union jno. o, ceiu last evening: Whereat, In the recent struggle between labor aud capital (the Laborers' Union representing the one, and the railroad monopolies representing t,ti other) that has taken place In our istste Legislature, Gov ernor Geary and some of our Senators and repre sentatives have shown themselves the firm friends of the worklugm-n ; therefore be tt Resolved, That, the Laborers' Vnlon No. 6, of Har rlsliurg, In behalf of all the worklngmen of this city aud vicinity, return to Governor Geary our most heartfelt timnfes for the noble mnnner In which he has stood by our Interests, for the wise counsel he has given our representatives, and lor the measures he lias been inatnlv Instrumental lu Instituting against the oppression of the worklngmen of this State. Resolved, That we return to the Senators and Re presentatives who have stood bv us In this great struggle our most sincere and heutfelt thinks, knowing that an approving conscience and the con lldence and esteem of their constituents will be their reward, and deserve the encomium of "Well done, good nd faithful servants." Resolved, That we most urgently request Governor Geary and those associated with htm not to relax their efforts until the laws of this Commonwealth are faithfully enforced, and the punishment due our oppressors is meted to them.
