In another olumn will b ound the reasons assigned by Got, Wilts for not signing the act to reorganlse the local government of New Orleans. However muoh the most en. thusiastio advocate of aohange in the form of our municipal government may havedesired a new charter, It Is quite certain that they never contemplated the passage of an act so contrary to the spit it or our Institutions, and which trespassc.i no.rossly upon the rights of the Individual citzlen as the bill under con elderatlon. The bill is In direct conflict with article I of the constitution (Billof Rights), which de fines the powers of government, viz: Its only leaitimate rod is to protect the oltl zRnu in the enjytsent o. Ife. llbertt, proporty, and when It assumes other functions it Is usur pation and oppression. In the face of this constitutional provision It is sought to invest a board of aldermen with power to suppress the amusements of the people, newspapers, bakers, Jewelers, ohemists, cotton classers, painters, carpen ters, printers, engravers, coopers, architects, builders and mechanics, hospitals, saloons, beer houses, and hundreds of callings that affect the altizen in all the relations of life, and to fix the rates of wagonage, drayage and cart age. No less objectionable is the attempt to em po wer the council to declare any business or property a nuisance, and without process of law to enter upon and take possession of It. SBetion 2s , which provides that no contract shall be awarded to any but a citizen of New Orleans, is most unwise and would sub ject the city to great loss In the future in carrying out any system of Improvements, as it debars the clty from purchasing from first hands articles not manufactured hero. Section 80 would destroy the power of the Council to carry on the very government which the act attempts to create, by giving a preference to the payment of old claims over current expenses. Section 87 embodies an extraordinary grant of power to seize persons and papers in all questions where the interests of the city are involved. Section 22 empowers the Councill to sell all parks or other public grounds belonging to the city, and thus rob the pIople of any fu ture benefit from the grounds which they have made such sacrifices to pay for, in the hone that one day they could be embellished. The oact in question violates the constitu tion In attempting the enactment of special legislation upon subjects which are general in character, and presents to the reader a specimen of crude legislation, which can only be accounted for by the hasty and lnconsilder ate manner In which it was amended ani passed through the House. It will be remembered that all but a few sections of the bill were passed In the House within a few minutes time, without debate or consideration, and that the bill as a whole reached the Benate too late to receive that careful examination which the Senate ap pears to have given the mass of the business whlch originated in the lower house. Complaints have been raade against the power vested in the administrative bureaux, but this act would create the most despotic government that was ever empowered to op press a people, with questionable means for promoting the happiness or welfare of the citizen, but with power, in improper hands, for incalculable evil. Under these circum stances the Governor of the State has but performed an imperative duty In withhold ng hise asignature to the act. FIRST 0ONGRE88IONAL DISTRIOT. It has been a matter for sincere regret with all well wishers for the success of the Demo cratic party that serious differences of opin ion have arisen concerning the action of the delegations to the State convention from the First District in assuming the right to nominate a Congressman. As the DEMO (CAT stated heretofore, the objections do not appear to rest against the distinguished gentleman who has been named for the position; on the contrary, his frequent selection by that district, his recent election to succeed a Senator from this State, and his recognized pokitlon and services, preclude any discussion on that point. Nevertheless it must be admitted that discontent exists with the people who must vote, and upon whom depends success in the coming election. We are not prepared to say to what extent this discontent exists, and the DEMOCRAT has refrained from saying anything that would in any way increase the ascerbity of feeling, with the hope and belief that some way would be found to correct the matter and re store harmony. From the correspondence in another col umn it would appear that Gen. Gibson recog nizes the doubt existing in the minds of both friends and opponents as to the power of the delegates to do more than select delegates to the Cincinnati Convention, and with that self sacrificing spirit which is worthy of a gen tleman who has received such high honors from the Democratic party, he plainly indi cates to his political friends the propriety and necessity of inaugurating measures that will heal all dissensions. As we have heretofore said, this district casts fifteen thousand Democratic votes, and the party can neither afford a lukewarm campaign nor one embarrassed by party dis sensions; therefore, we trust that the exam ple and the advice offered by Gen. Gibson will be acted upon by his political friends in such manner as to secure the united support of the Democracy of that district for a con gressional nominee. Gen. Gibson has cer tainly not Impaired his claims upon -the po pie of his district, if the nomination should be again submitted for their action, by his prompt and self-sacrificing advice to his sup porters. NO TROOPS FOR ELEOTIONS. After a prolonged debate the [louse of Representatives, by a vote of 116 to 95, adopted the proposed amendment to the army appropriation bill, and then by a vote of 118 to 95 passed the bill itself-a strict party vote, except that of Mr. Nicholls, of Georgia, who voted In the negative. The amendment, which was so strongly or posed by the Republicans, stipulates that no money appropriated in the act shall be paid for the subsistence, equipment, transportation or comoensatlon of any portion of the army of the United States to be used as a police force to keep the peace at the polls at any election held within any State. In his speech on the pending amendment Gen. Ewing, of Ohio, very clearly Illustrated the inconsistency of the Republicans In denouaning the practice of putting riders a. appropriation bills, and showed thasidosng twswve'*sars of Besub had bee teoted on to appropriation bils., In oonalueion he deolared that no matter on which side the troops might be used at else. tions, they would be base instruments of the party despot who sent them there. MILITARY PENSIONERS. During the discussion of a bill to place non commiseloned officers of the army on the re tired list after thirty years of service, Ms. Saulsbury, of Delaware, made a spirited I.t tie speech in opposition. lie said he had due respect for the soldiery, but he thought they were already sufilciently honored and pro vided for. He oailed attention to the fact that while the national capital was filled with monuments to soldiers, money could not be raised by subscription there to erect a monu ment to a civilian, no matter how dis tingulshed, nor would Congress entertain a propoesition to reti re on a pension public ser vants who had been faithful in a civil capa city. And yet, he said, there were civilians as useful at home and in public walks during the war, and of as much service to the coun try as any soldier In the field. He said that for these reasons among others he should always oppose all increases of the pension lists for purposes at all like .those contem pla ted in the pending bill. These objections, it will scarcely be doubted, were honest ly made by the staunch old Senator from Delaware, but It is to be regretted that the public mind has heretofore been lndis posed to listen to such arguments. In fact, since the termination of the war, It has been regarded as more or less treasonable to even dissent from any measure, no matter how un necessary or extravagant Its provisions might be, looking to the bestowal of honors or emoluments upon persons who have been engaged In the military service of the country. At the rate the pension list has been increased during the past few years, if continued, it will not be long until one-half of the daily earnings of the unpensioned will be required to support those who have preferred claims upon the government. As Mr. Saulsbury In timates, it is time that the pension roll should be finished. The laboring men of the country, who are contesting w h their employers for barely living wages, ' annot look favorably upon any measures that contemplate the in crease of the already grand army of public idlers. If officers and non-commlssioned officers are entitled to government support after thirty years' of service, why not place workingmen on the same footing? The city of St. Louis Is In luck. It has just won a great suit against the Missouri Pacific aillroad, Involving, principal and interest, the sum of $920,000. In 1885, when the road was in a bankrupt and unfinished condition. it borrowed from the county of St. Louis $700,000 in bonds. The interest was promptly paid on those until 1876, when the road passed into the hands of receivers under a fore closure of mortgage. The county of St. Louls appeared In the courts and asked that its claim against the road should be recog nlsed as binding, and that it should be sold subject to this claim. The United States Cir cuit Court sustained this view, and made a decree that whoever bought under the fore closure proceeding should buy subject to the claim of the county, and established the claim as a lien on the road superior to any other interest then existing. When the road was sold the purchaser appealed from this decree to the United States Supreme Court. In the meantime the county made over its claim to the city of Sti Louis, by which the suit was prosecuted and finally won. Pend ing the proceeding before the Supreme Court the road was again sold, Jay Gould this time becoming the purchaser. It will devolve upon him, therefore, to satisfy the judgment. If report sla to be believed, James Gordon Bennett is about to engage in a journalistic enterprise that will completely overshadow the Stanley expedition to find Livingstono or the Jeaqpette's search for the North Pole. It is said that he intends to establish a chain of two-cent morning newspapers, reaching from New York to the Pacific coast, and in eluding Buffalo, Cincinnatit, St. Louis, Chi cago, Kansas City and San Francisco. To conduct such an enterprise as this would re quire a large capital and almost unlimited energy. The former Mr. Bennett has, and it is understood that John Russell Young will supply the latter, he having been selected as the general director of the papers to be em braced In the scheme. The new journals are to share the telegraph facilities of the New York Herald, and are, like it, to be ludepen dent in politics. As a story was afloatmome months ago that Mr. Bennett intended to print an edition of the Herald In theiety of London, and as he has done nothing of the kind thus far, the present report may be taken with a large degree of allowance. The telegraph has told us something of the effect of the English elections on the Continent and the general consternation they caused among the European powers, with the exception of Russia, which, of course, was delighted at the defeat of jingo ism. It is said that one of the powers which is most interested in the change and which expects the most of it is Spain. All the Spanish newspapers express themselves delighted at the Liberal success, and declare that it must result in the ce3sion of Gibral tar to Spain. Thenew Liberal government will, they think, take England out of European politics, and will advocate the theoryof "peace at any price," so that a little pressure from Spain will gain back Gibral tar. As able statesmen as Castelar and Canovas pretend to believe this and an nounce that when Gladstone's government Is instailed, one of the first acts of Spain will be to demand its ancient possession, Gibral tar. The House District Committee has re ported a bill appropriating $677,000 for the completion of the Washington monument at the capital. The task of erecting this monu ment has been one of the heaviest the govern ment has taken on its hands. It was begun in 1799, so that it has been under way eighty one years. In this period only 156 feet of the proposed height of 700 feet has been com pleted. At this rate three centuries will barely bring us to the glass pyramid which, it is proposed, shall be placed on the summit of this structure. The impaneling of negroes on juries in Vir ginia has been a question before the public for some time. A number of Virginia State judges refused to summon negroes on their juries. Thequestlonwas brought before Judge Reeves, of the United States District Court for Virginia, who decided that this was con trary tothe fifteenth amendment, and that a negro hbad a right to be tried by his peers ae oes, The United Btates Supreme Oodrt of the Virgiia egislature that this was an nvasiton of the rights of the State. One, at least, of the Virginia judges has ohanged his views on this question, and negroes are now called to serve on juries in Petersburg, where they had never served before. Another story of famine comes to us from the province of Orenburg, in Russla, where, i t is reported,the greatest destitution prevails. There is now scarcely a quarter of the globe we can turn our eyes to where famine and de str uction are not prevailing. In Ireland, Galway and Mayo are the eoenesof thegreat est suflering; in Silesla, the people are llving on flour made from clay; around Adrianople, in Turkey, the dogs are the only food avail able, and men and women drop down dead in the streets every day from lack of food; in Bi razll the dead can already be counted by hundreds of thousands; and in far-off Chlna by millions. There is probably no time in the history of the world when there was so much suffering of this kind. The United States appears to be the only country of its sine and extent where crops are successful and where actual destitution does not prevail. CURRENT TL'ICJ. OBIMAN EMIGOATION TO AMUICIA. The report of the Commissiloner of Emigra tion of the German Empire contains some very signlficant figures. From Itwe learn that s,5as? emigrants left the country durlnr the year 1I79. Of this entire number so.se came to the United States. There is an increase of the total emi gration in 1l79 of over oeoo persons, while the emigration to the United States shows an in erease of loo,U. 'The signs already appurant in the Empire Indicate that the present year will witness an activity In emigration which will surpass the great movements of 1l71 and 1572. This extraordinary exodus is generally at tributed to the contemplated increase of the armies of the Empire. 81milar movements are also in progress from SBondinavia and other portions of Europe, which, added to that from the British Isles. will swell the grand total of additions to the population of the United States to almost Incalculable proportions. BSpeaking of the German emigration movement the New York Tribune commends the fact to the thoughtful conslderation of the people who are trlyng to bring about the renomination of Gen. Grant. It thinks such a course will drivethegreat mass of the Germans in this country from the ranks of the Republican party. as It cannot be denied that they have grave apprehensions as to the result of a third presidential term. waxaR TS1 ONaST 00ons. Eighty millions of gold has been reoeived in the United States from forelgn countries dur ing the past year. Our government has been coining silver at a rapid rate-as much as two millions in a month-and yet the great oper ators in Wall street and financiers elsewhere aro asking where all the money goes. An ex change undertakes to solve the conundrum by sating that the revival of domestic and foreign trade has absorbed a great many millions for its use. and that it has been the custom for the New York banks to disburse many more mil lions every fall to move the cotton crop. This heretofore has only been a temporary advance ,f the money to the cotton shippers, as was that of an equally large sum which went to the Northwestto move the grain crop. These were only short loans made by New York to the country. The past season, it is said, has re versed all this. Of the millions sent South to move cotton not more than two-thirds has come back, the other third' remaining in Southern hands at present. Of the much larger sum sent West and Northwest for the grain and pork non avery large balance s1 now in the pockets of the farmers, were it Is likely to remain. For the first time in many years it is remarked that these farmers can show a resrectable surplus in cash for the year's crop. after paying labor and store bills. SHADOWS O O COINIG ETENTS. The New York Nation of a recent date pub. lished what purported to be an Interestlng phase of the civil rights question, based upon the rulings of the Supreme Court of the United States relative to the power of local school boards to make obligatory the reading of the Bible in the public schools. This decision of the final court is alleged to have been rendered in May. i8eo, while the case was aopealed from the April term of the Supreme Court of Illinois of the same year. The effect of this ruling, ac cording to the Nation, was to deprive the Roman Catholli population of Illinois of the right to education in the public schools, which they are largely taxed to support. It is further stated by this chronicler of future events that an injunction had just been granted in the United States Circuit Court in Chicago to re move the said case into that court. "Every man." said the learned judge presiding in the Circuit Court. "has a right to an eoual enjoy. ment of the privileges of education for which he is taxed; and to abridge this right is an invasion of the fourteenth amend mont." A similar ruling is announced to have just been made in the United States (Or cult Court in Alabama. Under date of beptem ber. 1880, is noticed that a late decision of the Supreme Court of Ohio, to the effect that the compulsory reading of the B.ble in the public schools must be abandoned, has just been re versed by the Supreme Court of the United Stater. "Have not Protestant Christians." ar gued Mr. Justice 3trong. giving the opinion of the court, "their rights under the fourteenth amendment, (believing, as they do, that the Bible is the basis of education; and can they be constitutionally deprived of these rights in a State where their money goes to supply three. fourths of the expense of these schools?" It had been objected, on the argument, that this position was inconsistent with a late ruling in Chicago, by the United States Circuit Court there sitting, to the effeot that read ing the Bible in the srhools could not be constitutionally Enforced, as the effect was to impair the civil rights of Roman Catho. lice. But this obj cetion was refuted by Judge Strong, "It proves." he said in the course of his opinion. "that under the fourteenth amend. ment the rights of no class in the community can be invaded, and that the fourteenth amend. ment, as it was lately remarked by a distin guished Federal judges in Virginia (RtveJa).h in fact as well as in theory, proclaims liberty throughout the land. It might indeed be argued that this breaks up the schools, since they can not at the same time read and not read the Bible. The objection, however, is irrelevant,. and if the schools interfere with civil rights, so much the worse for the schools." BOUGH ON BENJAMIN FRANKLIN. According to an article published in the Lon don Athen~um., Benjamin Franklin is not en titled to the credit of having first drawn light ning from the clouds. On the contrary, the Athena um confesses a sort of satisfaction, on behalf of the Old World. In being taught to ante date this triumph of experimental sagacity though only by a few days. in favor of an ex periment made at the suggestion of Buffon by M. Dalibard. at his country house at Marly-la Ville, about eighteen miles from Paris, on May 10o, 1752, fifty-five days before the observation at Philadelphia by Franklin. It is stated that M D dibard's house stood on a high plain, some tee fet above the sea level, and here a wooden scaffolding was erected supporting an iron rod eighty feet long and a little more than an inch thick. At about five feet from the ground this rod was connected with an electrical apDaratus. On the day above desarnated . thunder storm dame o' - ".wa sabesenlt in Paris. but eantiel, an old stldIteased Ooi08f, with fll Instruateons, Oo'fer oresented to the eondue. tor an Iron key with the handle bound in silk, and was thus the flret human observer who drew down, by tentative means, the eleotrle spark from the clouds. This account is ealone lated to seriously impair our American Benja min's "boom" In the iuhibning-rod business. Largest Cotton Cargo on Record!
