The Prifion Reform OaunEEtMW, which tairins
its aeaaioiiH thi? evening, will have addresses
from a Ioiik oil of distinguished students of
criminal law and its methods of punishment.
The desire of reformers is to make our pris?

?ratber than unmakes criminals. Every ad

The certificate of 19 foreign physk'iana thnt
the ex-Sultan of Turkey died from dissevered
arteries is entitled to due weight. The hurry
evinced in burying him in leas than IS hours
after bis death ia, however, suggestive of foul
play. Then* is also an undignified anxiety to
bave Sultan Murad recogui-od by the foreigu
Powers. This indicates ?lint the Porte con?
siders there i._ no longer nny rciison to ques?
tion Iiis claim. While Abdul Ariz lived, Servin
won disposed to l?e tardy in admitting Murad
Ktleiidi's right to deniiind tribute fioui her.
It is now clearly proved th.it Mr. Margarny
wan murdered by Cliini-e t loops. This fact
will serve |o ?oiilinn the impression that there
is (let p-senlcd hostility still entertained against
foreigners in the interior of (.'hi?a. In tin- sea?
board eilies it is deemed both prudent ?mil
profitable to treat Ihr foreign residents with
comparative respect.
Hartley's testimony against Speaker Kcff had
from tike liist no basis except Haincy's word ;
it was opposcdjto nearly nil reasonable prob?
abilities, and ll.itly contradicf; d by the Bpeaket
himself. An exposure of Hartley's life and
character now discredits him as a witness,
l'lom other sources there comes circumstantial
evidence that he pocketed the money lie re?
ceived from (ircene. In addition to all this,
Mr. Kelt ?rives 9 minute and satisfactory ac?
count of the circumstances undei which he ad?
vised the 11 re?ue appoint nient. That scandal
is wiped out.
Than ia no mon! und considerably less
reason for changing our coinage to fractions
of the pound sterling than there is for Great
Britain to changa her coins to multiples ?and
liait ions of ours. The scheme which Mr.
Sherman advocated jreatetday in tibe ?S?nate
would, if ?adopted, check all hope of a truly
international ?coinage, and plunge the whole
BMttef into remediless confusion. Our present
coins are decimal, and very nearly in direct
rt lation to the metiic system of weights and
measures. In these two jiaititillais they are
very far superior to the British coinage, and
an attempt to assimilait- them to that would
be ? backward atop.
The ?Committee appointed to look into the
?important question of tin* Slate Capitol at
Albany have ?decided to accept the design of

Mr. Maine has seiz.-d hie opportunity, and is
once more the man of the hour. The patriot?
who have been partite: his garments ?among
them may M Pell abandon that checilul task.
Me is not half so near dead as his
persecutora. Then can be no aaietaking
the concurrent Judgment of oh-civi?r.s of all
parties, as to the ?effect of the dramatic Scene
yc-tei'day in the IIoii?*. The h .ni-i.ui In .Mr.
Maine's favor is InstantanOOOfl and overwlii lin?
ing. If he was tin? strongest candidate u week
ago, he is stronger now.
For what Mr. Maine has done is far more than
simply to disprove the allegations against him.
That indeed he has done thoroughly. The
letteis about which the contideiice-inaii Mulli?
gan declared that Maine was ?ready to commit
suicide, are given tu the woild, and are BOOB
to be harmless. The ?BoetoU witne-si s
have ?established nothing whatever against
him; und the fact that they ingeniously raised
such u Storni over nothing, mi ves at OMA to
n veal their malicious puiposc, and to make
them ridiculous. They were lln- feeble toolfl
ol a conspiracy which their failure expoacfl and
breaks down.
In war it has always been ?held a wise rule
to do what your em my doesn't want. This
?conspiracy shows just what the De_oeracy
?I i? sii't want. It doesn't traot Maine
to be the Repttblicaa nominee. All
other Republican candidate?! it has let
alone. Against Maine it has evidently
exhausted all ils resource-. It was
willing to let any other man get the
nomination. Maine, it was resolved to
keep oil' the track. The Republicana
will not 1m- slow to take the hint, and we
count Mr. Maine to-day a ?-stronger candidate
lor the support of the ?Republican ?party than
he has been on any day since bia ?eandldaey
was Irat ?mentioned.
For the rest, he has won the hearty admira?
tion of foes M well at friends, lor the right
manly way in which he has boine himself
through this moat trying ??ideal. Our
political history shows few in-t inces in
which a candidate not yet before Un?
people has been so venomou-iy
pursued, and none in which the peisedition
has been better endured or more succc.-_-ilully
repelled? Mr. Maine may not bfl the next
Presid? tit, ami he may even fail of the Repub?
lican nomination] though certainly for that his
prospects were never fail 11. Hut he
has made it tolerably certain that no
Confidential clerk Attiring harmless private let?

?Bgaia ligure as ? potent engine of n bum and
the controlling ?power in a Presidential election !
The probable suicide, possible assassination?
in any case, death?of the late Sultan, is a
matter of not the slightest political moment.
As nn (xi!e at Hagdad, or elsewhere, he might
at some future period have become the center
of intrigues and the source of trouble 1 but his
influence over the present coin.-4? of Turkish
politics ceased from the moment of his deposi?
tion. The revolution was too sudden and com?
plete to leave any n -limants of power behind
it. He had already spoken hi.s last word and
haw hustled oil' the stage : his death is simply
tin- final assiiranco that lie cannot 1?-turn to it.
With every day the MUM of events, which
we have already indicated M most probable,
moves a little further. Kvcry day Servia
draws a little nearer to the front ?er, toward
that position where, with Hosnia as her right
and Bulgaria as her left wing, she will become
the center of a formidable line of battle,
facing toward Constantinople. Her soldiers
can already see the far blue peaks of the
Halkaii, tilling the whole horizon to the south?
east, and are burning for the opportunity to
seize and hold that strong advanced lin?-.
Secretly encouraged by their Slavic brethren
of Hussia, and understanding the instinct of
that ampBN as completely as if it welt? set
forth in a protocol, they care little for formal
diplomatic advice. Still less are they likely
to care for the anxious mediation of
Austria, whose Prime Minister, Audi assy,
as a Hungarian, provokes all the preju?
dices left by the ancient enmity be?
tween the two races. The action of Greece,
equally with that of Servia, presuppose* the
secret sympathy of RUBflia. GlUMUhM .always
coveted?in fact, claimed as of right-the jkis
st-ssion of Kpirus and 1 he**saly, and without
?the speedy intervention of BOTOC pOWCC m
favor of Turkey, she is very likely to get
them now. The prospect of a successful rising
among all the Christian subjects of Sultan
Murad grows fairer every day. The promised
refoims have net yet been proclaimed, and the
time is very MM at hand, if not already
arrived, when any promises what, ver will be
met with the cry of "Too late'"
Meantime the Great Powus are doing noth?
ing. England seems to hare been playing a
game of blull' so far. and is stupefied to tiltd
th.it her advei.saiies will not be scared.
Hu-sia is probably satisliol that the revolu?
tion, unaided, is fully able to cope with the
power of Turkey in the saine condition, and
is only concerned in having a free tight and
no interference. If this can be secured, Gcr
manv, also, will have no reason to object.
At'stria, on every BCOOUnt, is nei voiisly desir?
ous to secure immediate ?peace. The policy of
?Prance is pacitic, no doubt honestly so. but
still somewhat reserved.
As matters slant! at this moment, F.ngland
can go BO further without making hciself vir?
tually th<- ally of Tiiikey, under ein umstand s
? which would stamp her as the protector of
Islam against Christianity. Such a step would
I be followed by the alliance of ?iissia with the
Slavic insinrection, and the two Powers would
i I.?- brought once more into eoUUiott. ll Ruealai
whose .?talesmen are too shrewd not to pro
' vide for all possible contingencies, is nssun d
of the quiet neutrality of Qeamany and Praaea
! m such a case, she may await Kngland's uext
movement with entile complacency.
Once more the Associated Hanks as a body
have largely increased their PB8C1 ves. K.veii in j
.specie there has been a moderate increase of ?
$120,300, the First National having swelled j
its report by $331,300. The g-iin in legal
tenders is if"-'. 176,1??", und, notwithstanding
an increase of $2,217,900 in deposita, the |
proportion of legal tender to deposita is now
34.51 ?percent. The position it not quite m

but ?the banks ?is a whole hold B ICSClve suf?

In loans tin ic is a further decline of
$813,900, although the average <>f the pre?
vious week was lower than at any time since
the raapenflion in 1873. A ?reduction of
$31,000,000 in this branch of iMUnwca sine
last year is by no means g discouraging feature
if the reduction has been caused bv the lettle?
mini of old aiaiiiiiits and tie- al in?! tin nt of
debts by weak burowtis; but if, on lite ?other
hand, this class of doubtful loans has not be? n
materially Ics-ciied, while the decrease has
?been due ?mainly to the reduced demanda by
Bound borrowera bT ?legitimate ?busineea, the
banks are considerably ueaker. On this point
it is well to n?.te thai tin- decline in l>ii?in?ss
transactions, as shown by the ?dealings, is
larger than the decline in loans. On tin- other
hand, it is generally believed that the banks as
well as the mercantile community have been
decidedly improving their condition ?luring the
past vi ar by the Weeding out ot weak or ill?
s'.I cut linns.
In 111?- aggregate the ban!.s .ne itrong, but
some of then are weak anil show DO fligM of

holding large legal-tender ?r?serv?e, li isa
sinking fatt that, ?although the ?BBsociated
banks have iiniea-ed their legal ?tendera by
?$2,476,100, the ?twelve Breaker banks then
named have only ?$3,357,200 m legal tendera
agairisi $3,452,600 Ir-t week. The eight
banks which then held $11,254,800 now hold
$11,705,000; the live banks which then held
?large ap?ete reeerrea and $8,231,900 in legal

hold sinaller res? i v? s in legal ?tendel than they

Of the eight banks which last week held in
all less reserve than is required by law, the
First National has made up its reserve by in?
creasing its specie, and now holds a ?smaller
legal-tender reserve than any other, while the
Mechanirs' Hanking Association has promptly
raised Hi legal-lender reserve (o _j I per cent.
The Greenwich. People's, North America,
Naaaau, Oriental, and (?cunan Aiin-iican utill
hold less reserve than the law requires, and
thirteen banks out of the seventeen mill hold
as legal-tender reserves les? than '_'<> per cent
of deposits. Deducting the Mechanics' Hanking
Association ami the Tenth National, there re?
main ten banks which now hold 90,94*8,900
in legal tenders to protect $'___.,0S_',7<M) in
deposits, or only IS |mt cent. The specie re?
se?e of these banks is ?$2,593,900, or 11 per
cent, rto that in the aggregate they lall a little
short of the legal requirement. Hy way of
contrast we add the returns of the eight
strong banks named last week, which pt-i
histently hold a strong reserve:

Yi-ster?lay the (?crinan population of this ami
th?- neighboring cities celebrated, after their
usual fashion, the old pentecostal season,
adopted and naturalized m Whitsuntide by the
Christian Church. This obs?rvame carries
back our thought! to the earliest religious BU
?ijuity. it la a connectin.,- link hit ween
the <?ld and New Dispensations. It perpetu?
ate? the "Feast of Weeks'1 of the Hebrews.
It commemorates the marvelous and miracu?
lous descent of the Holy (.host u|M)fi the little
eongragation gathered together according to
the nndent law, when a new faith tilled their
baJUtl and new forms of speech, wen* put Into
their mouths, m that "every man heard them
" s.xiik his own language.-1 It was the lavor
ite season of baptism MBOag the early Chris?
tians. Ilota who lccci.cd the ordinance put
on "white" pirments, und thus a name was
Kiven to the anniversary which it still retains.
Yesterday the religion? tLiy was put to the
accustomed He?ular uses?to pro?s ssions and
picnics, to daiKinii and abging, and the drink- I
in* of beer. There is a ?tnngO but not an I
unusual ccntrast between the awful solemnity
of the primal Whitsuntide and the merriment I
with which its return in now gloated. The I
modern devotee consi.iers maiidy the joyous [
side of the institution. If Le thinks of his |
religion at all it ia only to remember the
blessings which it lias brought liiin, nnd the
happiness which bas followed the preaching of
the faith in all tongues to all nation?. He
hardly recalls the gloom and grief of that first
Whiisumlay, when the little band of original
believers were still heavy-hearted for the de?
parture of their leader and teacher, and were
yet full of the mystery of the resurrection and
ascension. Hut it is with this, as with
all our sacred leasts. We keep them accord
| ing to the way of our day and g?n?ration.
No matter how sublime the occasion, we be?
take ourselves to the table. Human happiness
naturally resorts to eating and drinking, to
singing and dancing. Whenever we are not
trained by the tragic character of the story
into sobriety and fasting, we connect the mem?
ory of it with our old customs and recrea?
tions. So we all keep Christmas, and so
Whitsuntide is kept by those who keep it at all.
Iteligioiis observance is so much a matter of
natural temperament that to criticise it ac?
cording to any rigid rule would hardly be
profitable. 'those who still adhere in ? limited
May to Hie asceticism of the Puritans will be
alow to believe in the religious influence of a
merry-making like that of yesterday. Un
i|iie.stional>ly it is not direct nor superficial.
We are blind to all except immediate result**.
The point of penance we can see with half an
eye. We naturally believe that a man is in
earnest when he puts on a hair shirt, llogs
himself, and fasts almost to the point of
starvation; but when upon a holiday,
which is also a holy day, be dances,
and drinks, and treats himself to rural
pleasures, we think that he has forgotten
the serious nature of the occasion. So he has,
perhaps, for the moment. Hut we must cori
? sider the whole intluence of such pastimes
upon his whole life. He may not necessarily
neglect the fasts liecause be is careful to keep
the fusts. TIMM is religion in good fellow?
ship. Then U fraternity even in the drinking
together of beer. Whether there may BIM he
excess ?dependa upon character. Every year
Christmas is abused, but who for that ?MUM

with a play by C. W. Tavieui.? new to New York, and
?vith an actress. Mrs. Henrietta Cliaufrau, who baa beun
so long absent that her return would have be.n
almost a first appearance if it were not that
she was so kindly re mem he red. Both play and
actors deserved a larger house, thotiijh it was of ?fair
?ue, and could not well have been a more frieudl* one.
The play, called " Parted," which has been nnn-h ?iked

company ofll.ial, who finds himself not only per?
sonally involved in the ruin of th?j company but

fesses his crime, her husband reappear* alive

?liit liar?ed her pait with all her ac-u.-tomed grace, and
was twice called before the curiatu. The pl.iy give?
proof throughout of the careful hand of a cooscienilous
worker. Much of the dialogue is hi lathi aud happy, nn?l
?evaenl of the situations are striking and effective. The
play will be repeated e\ ery 111g.1t till further iiolice.
