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 thing. . 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 May, 1871: Kumbtr of Carloads. 1870. 18"1. lucrewi.

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. KE1Y JERSEY. 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. NOTICES. .

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 blessed. Democratic Rpjalcluga. Concord, N.
