The anti-Penn Sqnareites are bent upon fur
nishing entertainment to the citizens of . Phi
ladelphia,aland it would not be surprising, even
after the publio buildings are ereoted npon
the intersection of Broad and Market streets,
dedicated to their nses with imposing cere
monies, and occupied by the conrts and muni
cipal officers, if the Washington Square property-holders
were to continue to call
mass meetings, to petition the Legislature,
to appeal to the courts, and to oarry on gene
rally just as they are now doing, and
with about as much chance of having the
buildings torn down as they now have of pre
venting their erection. Of all the queer
antics indulged in by these terror-stricken
holders of ral estate, the recent application
to the Supreme Court for a perpetual injunc
tion against the Building Commission is about
the queerest. This application is made on
the ground that the bill creating the Building
Commission was the work of artful design,
or, in the language of Truthful James, was
drawn "with intent to deoeive." The
arguments of the . petitioners on
"this point are . rather shaky,
and as if fearful that they will not hold water,
they fall back npon a technical argument and
demonstrate to their own satisfaction that
the law is clearly nnconstitutional. To induce
the Supreme Court to take the same view of
the case is the task to which the energies of
the anti-Penn Sqnareites will now be directed,
and if a majority of the judges cannot see the
thing in the same light as their petitioners,
they may expect to be abused in the
same energetio style that the members of the
Legislature were who declined to aooept the
self-appointed committee whose report was
read on Saturday night, at the Academy of
Music, to an audience of about three hundred
and fifty, as the representatives of a. majority
of the citizens of Philadelphia. The removal
of the courts and municipal offices from their
present site will certainly be a very serious
thing for the property-holders in the vi
cinity, whose rentals will probably amount
to scarcely twenty-five per cent, of what they
now do. It is not at all surprising that they
should endeavor by all legitimate means
to prevent the removal of the publio build
ings to Fenn Square, or even that they
should stretch their coascienees a little and
make efiorts in the same direction not quite
legitimate. They, of course, care nothing
for the convenience or interests of the publio
bo long as their own are in jeopardy, and
there is no particular reason why they
should, for a man's bread and
butter is one of the first things he is bound
to take care of. On the other hand, why
should the publio care for the Washington
Square property-holders, when it is more con
venient to erect the new City Hall elsewhere'
than in their neighborhood? In a case of
conflicting interests like this, the minority
must as a matter of course suffer; and while
we feel sorry that those engaged in the busi
ness of renting lawyers' offices in the vicinity
of Independence Hall will so soon find their
occupation gone, it can scarcely be expected
that the publio shall be obliged to suffer be
cause they are anxious to hold fast to a good
Tie British Government is very anxious to
have the treaty of Washington ratified, and it
must afford the people of the United States
an immense amount of satisfaction to see the
determined efforts that are being made to
stifle all opposition. Some of the.Tories,
who, in spite of ample evidences to the con
trary, have unlimited confidence
in the ability of their nation to
fight all creation with success,
find the treaty a bitter pill to swallow, but
the men who really understand the situation,
and who know that if the treaty is not ratified
it will be impossible to conclude another one
like it with the United States, are determined
to have it aocepted at all hazards. Poor old
Ruasell, who was, more than any one man,
responsible for the Alabama controversy, of
course felt bound to protest against the work
of the Joint High Commission, but ha v.
ing entered his protest, he grace
fully submitted to the inevitable, and
consented to oppose the treaty
no further. Mr. Disraeli, as the leader of the
Tory party in the House of Commons, has
agreed to keep silent even if he does not
advocate the treaty. The average Johnny
Bull, who would rather do anything in the
world than apologize, is pacified by the Times
with the delusive assurance that free trade is
making such rapid progress in the United
States that the profits on English manufactures
will in a short time be Be great as to more than
counterbalance any mortification caused by
the treaty, and the recalcitrant Canadians are
soothed with the assurance that the ratifica
tion of the treaty by the imperial government
will not prejudice their interests so far as the
claims relating to the fisheries and other
questions at issue between the United States
and Canada are concerned. So the treaty will
become a law for the two nations in spite of
the malcontents on both sides of the Atlantic;
and the people of the United States may con
gratulate themselves upon having achieved a
substantial victory by means of the policy of
patiently awaiting for the proper moment.
Connecticut is apparently about to make
an effort to reform her disgracefully loose
system of granting divorces, as a bill has been
introduced in the Legislature in compliance
with the recommendation of Governor
Jewell, which, if it beoomes a law, will pre
vent the land of the wooden nutmeg makers
from being any longer the favorite refuge of
those who hold that marriage is nothing more
than a partnership that may be dissolved at
pleasure. There ought certainly to be enough
decent people in Connecticut to influence the
Legislature to promptly pass the bill in ques
tion, but when it is passed their efforts for
the maintenance of the sanctity of the mar
riage tie should not stop there. All who are
opposed to the free-love dootrines of Mrs.
Victoria C. Woodhull and her followers should
earnestly agitate for a constitutional amend
ment that will place the power of passing,
uniform marriage and divorce laws for the
whole nation in the hands of Congress.. The
want of uniformity in the laws of the differ
ent States is the principal cause of trouble at
present, and a proper reform can never be
brought about except in the manner indi
cated. SHALL FRUIT SHIPMENTS.
The Season of 1871 Immense Increase- in
Shipments Qlore than Double those-of
X.ast Year. -
The increased attention which is being paid
to small fruits, etc., by the agriculturists of
Delaware, Eastern Shore of Maryland and the
neighboring country is well shown by the fol
lowing comparative statement of these articles
transported by the Philadelphia, Wilmington
and Baltimore Railroad, in May, 1870, and. in

These cars were not entirely loaded with any
one kind of fruit, but by far the greater number
were loaded wholly with strawberries, and all
nearly so. Calculating each quart of strawber
ries as two pounds, we have the equivalent of
1,035,000 quarts in May, 1870, and 2,993,000
quarts in May, 1871, being an increase for this
year of 1,936,000 quarts, as compared with last
year, and notwithstanding this great Increase,
we believe the growers were never better remu
nerated for their labor.
From the perishable nature of these fruits it
is highly important that they should be trans
ported to market with regularity and dispatch,
as otherwise growers will be subjected to fre
quent losses. We are pleased to learn that, not
withstanding the great increase this year, alt the
fruit has been got to market with great prompt
ness and without .accident or damage. This
reflects great credit on the management of the
railway officials, and they are receiving well
earned praises from the growers all along the
line. Wilmington Commercial.
Attempted Wife-Murder In TreuAon.
Elizabeth Ann Corson, in Trenton yesterday,
charged that her husband, James Corson, had
attempted to kill her. The man and wife were
parted little more than two years ago, and
about three weeks ago the wife says that the
husband came to her house, kissed) her, and
asked her to go and live with him in Baltimore.
As the wife owned the furnltnre, she consented
to the request of her husband. After she had
given consent she says be returned to the house,
and putting his arms around her neck as if to
embrace her, put some kind of a drug near her
face which bad a smoky smell.
lie then left, and with difficulty she went up
stairs, after which she fell down and became
unconscious, in which state she remained some
time. She kept waiting day after day for him
to come and go to Baltimore. She received a
notice to leave her house, and commenced to
pack up her furniture, when to her horror she
discovered that be bad another woman at his
boarding-house a Mrs. Mary Batchelor, from
Philadelphia whom he had intended to take to
Baltimore Instead of his wife. On inquiry she
fount that her husband alleged that he was
divorced from her, and trading on that divorce
was about to adding the crime of bigamy to
his other transgressions.
The Mayer granted a warrant for the arrest
of James Corson. About a year and nine
months since, James Corson saw his wife
walking with a man named Geerge Creamer,
and a flpht ensued, which resulted In a commit
ment to Court and a fine on Creamer.

Cavernor Wettou't Inaugural Message
COMOomo, N. II., June 14. Governor Weston's in
augural messsge states that the receipts of tne trea
sury for the year were l,l2,825; expenditures,
ti,(i88,8, of wnich sum $419,204 was applied ;to the
payment of the State debt. The Governor suggests
a more moderate taxation for such payments, and
the appropriation for the purpose of a sura equal to
the Interest on the debt and 1100,000 of the princi
pal. The Governor condemns special legislation,
and counHels prudence in the administration of the
State and national (nances.
In national politics he speaks as follows:
It ia the occasion of.congratiUation that the Union
Is lestored, and that all citizens are entitled to pro
tection In the rights guaranteed by the Constitu
tion, and It behooves all to endeavor ta cultivate
those relations of amity in which the Union had its
on an. and which must be fully restored If we would
reaaze the obvious advantages the Union was de
signed to secure.
However diverse the Interests of the different sec
tions of the country may appear they are really
Identical, and the utmost hope of the Union will
never be realized until we feel 'ourselves to be one
people, and until we are equally careful of the good
name and equally jealous of the rights of all. Let
us cherish with care a steady devotion to the Union
and all thOBe sentiments of fidelity, charity, and
brotherhood which alone cau mate the Union

Weston was received at the rtepot by Governor
Stearns and other distinguished persons.
The Legislature having met, too k a recess and
proceeded to the depot, where the procession was
formed and escorted the Governor elect to the
Capitol. Gover or Stearns then delivered the vale
dictory adorcatt, after which Governor Weston was
inaugurated and read his message.
Concord, N. JL, June 14.
Gov. Steams' Valedictory
gives a favorable account of the material Interests
of the State. The debt is $i,300,otm, on which the
Interest does not exceed six per cent., with an an
nual reduction of ix per cent, of the debt. The tax
of one per cent, exacted from the receipts of foreign
Insurance companies has realized to the treasury
nearly f 18,000 in the last twenty months. In conclu
sion Governor Stearns expresses the hope that,
nnder the blessings of Divine Providence, the Indus
try, Intelligence, and virtue ef our people will con
tinue to increase, and, through the Influence of our
religious and educational institutions, we may per
petuate a love of freedom.

the delegates refused to be seated in conformity

Insulting and threatening remarks were made
to the President, and a gang of ill-looking
roughs gathered iu front of the platform. Some

danger to the officers.
