The beneficent leKi.-lation of the State has heretofore treated destitute or ?haut? no words to be brought up tor uouicUiuia: in life; not as mere paupers to be kept from starving. To reverse or evade that legislation would be distinctly a step backward which we cannot believe the Legislature deliberately in? tends to take, or the sentiment of the people would tolerate. Superintendent Walling leplies to Mayor Ed son tbat the reason gambling-houses exist in certain parts of this city is because the police cannot get evidence on which to shut them up. The pidice captains in whose precincts these iniquitou8 places exist back Slr. Walling up in his statement. The sufficient answer to all this is the fact that for two months last year there was not a gambling-house open la New-York City from the Battery to Harlem. That was the time when Mr. McKeon put private detec? tives to work to see what they could do to sup? press this evil. _ The new society of artists?tho Art Union?at the head of which is Mr. Daniel Huntington, embodies an excellent idea. It can hardly fail to bring the people of this country to a better realization of the merits of American paintere. The managers of the Union intend to hold exhibitions in various cities, East and Weat, to display tho works of members of the society. The first oue will be in Buffalo in June. In thia way the artists can oiler their pictures to the public foi admiration or aale without the intervention of middlemen, and without show? ing a commercial spirit which is so disagreeable to their taste. Whether or not the financial results prove to be all the managers hope, the Union will undoubtedly be the means of in? creasing the general art culture of the country. The embezzlement of $100,000 which haa come to light in the Controller's office will aflecc reflective taxpayers painfully, lt haa been the general opinion that whatever the po? litical methods of tho City government might be, the business side of it was direfully conduct? ed ; that the system of cheeks and supervision was nearly perfect; und that the most trifling dishonesty would be promptly discovered. The Dock Department embezzlement* un.I the shortage in the late Mr. Oslo's accounts were -n branches of the municipality which uro hardly resronsible to anybody. If thieving goes on there, our principal men in authority cuunot be considered in any way to blame. The Controller's office, however, of all places, hus been supposed tobo manage il and supervised to perfection. An embezzlement, therefore, running back to 1879, under Controllers whose personal honesty no one has ever doubted, is a shock to the entire community. Mayor Low makes a strong argument in favor of tho opening of Flatbnsh-ave. to the Brooklyn terminus of the great bridge. A bill directing that this should be done by the city of Brooklyn waa sent tn the Legislature yee* terday. Mr. Low estimates the cost at $11,000,000. His bill provides for an avenue 140 feet wide ; no railroad is to be allowed ex (?(-pt upon fifty feet in the middle, anti tho city is to be reimbursed l>y a royalty for each pas? senger carried by the railways, surface or ele? vated,-which may use thc ^street, Tbe acm ?me appears to be an excellent ono. That the typt'ti? ing of the bridge will make necessary tome more adequate means ot reaching it than will be furnished by thc two atreets Washington and Sands?at whoso junction it terminates in Brooklyn, cannot be doubted. The extension of l'latbush-ave. appeals to bo au easy and natural way of providing what ia desired. Why should not tho city bo given authority to do thc work nowt This project, if earned through, will go far towald solving thepiob lem of rapid transit which Brooklyn nona! meet speedily if abe is to secure from the bridge ad? vantages in any way commensurate with the amount which luis been spent in building it. UNLIMITED Pl'il, HUT NO EEFOEM. Following closely upon thc defeat of Civil Service Reform in the Assembly, came Iho vic? tory of Free Kum in the Senate. The Assem? bly's shameless ami vulgar verdict upon Civil Service Refoi ni was that it was "too thin.'' But the Seuate did not find Free Kum " too thin." Oh, no. Ii promptly concurred with the Assembly in pronouncing Free Rum *i pre? cious boon?somethiug that meets n groat Dem? ocratic popular n__tt. Class la definition, st .md up. What is current New-York Stale Democ? racy 1 Current N'ew-Ycrk State Deinoctacy is a political organization whoso character ann tendency are revealed in Hie fact that while it is hostile to Civil Service lb foim il holds up both hands fer Free Ruin. The passage of the Civil Service Reform bills would have largely promoted Ihe public wel? fare. Nevertheless, Hie Democrats of tlie As? sembly did not hesitate to kill them. The 1 iee Rum bill, on the other hand, is ut '.var wiih the public good ; it widens the avenues thal lead lo poverty, ruin and disgrace. All Hie same, tho Democrats of lhe Senate did not hesitate to pul it through. What is the explanation of thc palpable disregard of tha dictates ot obvious propriety revealed in both these in-tuiices ? It i> that those who control in the present Leg? islature are the narrowest and mool unscrupu? lous of partisans whose motto evidently U: * The advancement of Democracy Hr.-! and tho common weal afterward." These men see in Civil Service Reform simply a baleful power, mighty for the drying up of thc fountains ol pup. Not being able lo conceive ol Democ? racy flouiishing without pap, ihey throttle the Civil Service Reform hills *? for the good ol the party." And so ''for the good of the patti" thej maker themselves solid with the liquor in? terest bv obeving that interest's behest in the matter of Free Rum. And the public good 1 ?? i?l),'say these law-makers by their actions, " we do not propose to allow what ia sentimcri tt tally known as tiie public good tc stand in the ?? nay of the good of the parly. ' lie serves bia "party Lest who serves his country best' " sounds prettily and makes a good ending for b a stump speech or a convention plntform. ?? Bul we take no stock in anv such nonsense. u Civil Service Reform is a good thing ; are can "seo that it means political progresa and ptirifi 14cation, but it hurts tho Democracy, and so wc " nra against it. Cn tho other band. Fran Ram ? is a bad thing, a very bad thing, but it belpa '? the Democracy, and hence weare foi it. That's '? the kind of earnest, practical Democrats wc " are." Once on a time the youthful son of the pro? prietor of an uncommonly sterile and forlorn farm fell in with u prosperous city urchin of about his own aire. The bitter began to brag of the many and varied attractiens of his fathers elegant mansion in town and his equally elegant country ?Seat. Iho former listened, burning with a desire to meet brag With brag, but could think of nothing to com? mend to tho other's envy. Finally, however, stung to desperation, he excluimed: '?Well, anyway, 1 don't believe you've got u skunk under your barn, and wo have." A Legis? lature that stands in tho way of Civil Ser? vice Reform, that tramples upon the right of suffrage by keeping Mr. Sprague out of the seat to which he was elected, that truckles to oleomargarine, that carefully neglects to revise the tax laws, thal legislates tried aud true men out of office for no other reason than because they ate Republicans, that labors under tho impression that an apportionment bill is a cunning device for increasing tbo Congresaional atrength o? the party that reports it, that treats thc charter of this great city as college boys treat a football?this Legislature when tho ses? sion is over will cast about for something to brag over. But it is likely to be as embarrassed as the boy that was reduced to the necessity of pointing a ith pride to the skunk under tho barn, lince its chief boast must be the glory of the shame of Free Rum. THE ANT1-EHESCU ALLIANCE, General Wolseley made a strategical uso of nowspuper coi respondents during the Egyp? tian campaign. Arriving at Alexandria, where his anny was concentrated in readiness for ac? tive operations, he could think of no better way to mislead the enemy in regard to his plan of cam? paign than to dupe the whole body of war cor? respondents. He contrived, therefore, to convey to the London journals tho impression that the main attack was be made close at hand at Aboukir, and this intelligence was speedily telegraphed to Arabi's headquarters by way of Constantinople ; and the change of base to tho banks of tho Canal was effected with startling rapidity, tho enemy being utterly unprepared for an advance from that quarter. Having nsr-d the correspondents at the outset for' purposes of his own, General Wolseley systematically an? ticipated their dispatches during the remainder of the campaign by graphio official bulletins sent whenever there was any real nows to be told. Now there is reason to believe that not only the Knvoys Extraordinary, but also the Ministers Resident of the I'ress in the Continental Capitals, aro dealt with on the same general plan. Diploma? tists and foreign officers have their repntntions for energy and sagacity which munt be sus? tained at all hazards, and leader-writers and eORBSpoadentS are convenient agencies for creating impressions, which may or may not be true, or for diverting public atten? tion in stagnant periods of national life. Whenever ther* are disclosures of genuine importance to make, Bismarck will give em? phasis to his own phrases and epigrams, Kalnoky und .Mancini will offer their own ex? planations to Delegation or Parliament. But alike in dull times and in critical emergencies, the diplomatists make a systematic BBS of the agencies of the Pres-, seeking to Influence now a home Legislature and again the public senti? ment ot a foreign Cower, mid not hesitating for purposes Of their own to (hei ive leader writer or correspondent! and in Ibis way to mislead parties, governments and nations. The rumors respecting the defensive alli? ance between Germany, Austria and Italy B-gainsi Fiance may illustrate tIii-s new habit of diplomatists. The Italian Minister of Foreign Affairs, knowing tbat the popularity of any Government in his country must de? pend mainly upon an adherence to the tradi? tional policy ol ceascleaa activity on tho Continent, linda it convenient for party pur? poses to let the na: ion know thal he* is not conducting a diplomacy ?f sterile inaction, but is adding lo the prestige of the Foreign Office. The conception of an nlliance implying a close understanding with the two strongest Powers of the Continent ia a good device for concili.it'ng public sentiment in Italy. For a season the Roman correspond? ents can tala of nothing else. In Germany these ramon of a defensive alliance ara speedily confirmed by one of a aeriee of jour nala which are credited with being "inspired*1 at certain seasons with Bismarck's ideas. The Chancellor has to sustain his reputation as tin* ;ii iiiiii of the destinies of the Continent, and he cannot allow the impression to piev.nl that anything of Importunes i- on foot with? out his knowledge or approval. Thc rumors are according!) eniphasuad by the leader* writcr, and the additional information is Vouchsafed that the alliance hus been formed against that hot bed ot democratic discontent ami anarchical chance?the French Republic That then-is a better understanding between the Govcrnmenta cannot be questioned. That lhere is a formal alliance or any movement of startling significance is grossly improbable, Apparently il has been forgotten by the ama? teur diplomatists Mi.it it is scitrcely a yeal ngo that Bismarck made a most con? temptuous reference to the position of Italy in Europe, deprecating an alliance arith a country that was "fast sliding by Hu* incline of Liberalism toward Republi? canism." During the twelvemonth the nation bus been working ont with signal saceesa the complex questions of revenue^ debt-paying anil industrial progress, which seem to have a special interest tor communities that are im? bued arith democratic beling. The redemption of an irredeemable currency, tobe effected thia spring, is ona of those finnncinl achievements which demonstrate practical talents of a republican order. The elections have shown that there la ao reaction agaiaat a Liberal Ism thal ia progressive to the targe of Rad enlisro. In short, nothing bas happened, no tendency has been disclosed, which tends to modify Bismarck's diatruai of Italy as a nation too republican in spiiil for close compani'in -hip with the military empires of the Conti? nent. Vet the irresponsible diplomatists ol the Cress would hale Hie Continent be? lieve that such au alli.mee has been foi med as a maana of common defence against Fianc.?a nation that has t_'ot lo the bottom of "the incline of Liberalism to? ward Republicanism"? formed, too, a foa montha altar tba neath of Hie only Frenchman who had tiny personal influence with the army and whose political policy was noi sluggishly pe iflc. Those rumors of a Continental alliance against the Republic excite mingled feelings of ridicule and resentment in Caris. France, while maintaining the largo' and moat expensive mili? tary establishment in Europa, was nevermore pacific, so far aa the interesta of the Conti in nt are concerned, than ai present. At the ends of tneearth, in Madagascar, on tbe Congo, or iii T.tilquin, consular age,its may be inp. ported in a vicious policj of adventure and greed, Inn in Kurope the Republic implies diplomatic inaction and abstention fiom equivocal alliances. The oonstituenciea have impressed iheir desire for peace npon the Deputies, and tlieic is no leader arith warlike instincts who et*i?ii alb ct the judgment al the nation ai large. A defensive alliance against France is, then-, fore, Ihe most uiiiii ci s.-aiy diplomatic com? pact of which the imaginative Ambassadorsof lhe Continental I'n ss can BC (haltering. The rumors would bs diaaaiaaed Ib Caris with dc ii>ion, ii tliey were not accompanied with molal reflections upon thc fundamental defects of the French systam of government. Thees arc ven properly resented. "Watch nay" erica tbe j.mi mil founded by Gambetta; "form defensive "leagues against us; but in Heaven's muse "spare us advice concerning the constitution " best suit'-d to ii.-." Every Frenchman know-, that the constitutional System does require -onie radical modifications, bnl except among the reidioii.ny fatuous there is no lack of faith in the ultim,it' revision of the funda? mental law and tlie symmetrical development of the national character. A coustitution inaktr will not bc sought for iu the loreign Capitals. There ls need of patience and peace, and in the tranquil and normal excrciee of the political capacity which the country undoubt? edly possesses, France will become as strong, well-ordered and pacific, an industrial State as her sister Republic in America. tl ULLETT PBOTkSTINO. It is stated that Mr. A. B. Mullett, late Super? vising Architect of the Treasury, haa filed a protest with the Secretary of State against what he alleges to be improper changes lu the new State, War, and Navy Department Build? ing. Mr. Mullett has maintained un attitude of protest ever since ho was removed from office. Whenever heard from?and wo do not now recall any consecutive two wee kb in which he has no! been briskly stepping round in the public ear?he hos been protesting against something ur other in language which had to be winnowed of much that was tinscriptural before printing. Out of office, ho protests against everything and everybody ; in office, everybody was in a corresponding condition of chronic protest against him. It happens that many of tho architectural nightmares which he concocted for the torture of thu public sense during his official career are Inchoate, In? complete. Alterations for the mitigation of some of tbeae monstrosities, changes calculated to alleviate the ire ne ntl distress they occasion, are his principal grievance. Wherever his derricks mark the spot foredoomed for one of the architectural blights with which he used to scourge the face of Nature and the eye of man, there Mullett may bo found, the dragon with a flaming sword and mouth full of coals of fire, forbidding approach and protesting against profanation of his plans. And now it seems that, having loamed of prospective changes in his plans for that remarkable tumble of pilasters, pillars, j porches and porticos known as the State, War, and liavy Deportment Building, he bas struck a_ain his favorite attitude of strenuous protest. No doubt it will seem singular to some persons who have seen so much of that, remarkable edi? fice as is completed, but have not s"cn Mullett, that ntiybody should protest against atty change whatever in it. For, like the farmer's alone wall, which he built live feet wide and three feet high?so that " if it should tumble dowu it would he higher (han it was before "? this structure seems to have been so planned that any change must ho an Improvement, and if it should tumble down entirely it would be In-Ucr than ever. Rut UiOBS who know Mullrtt ?and who docs not f? will not wonder at an> - thu.-' he does in the way of protestation or pro ? Sanity. The building in question is probably tba worst of all bia works? whieh ia saying a great deal?and it may be that its supreme ex? cellence in this regard imparts unusual energy to bis protest against any chaage in his plans. Or it may be that he feels toward all his struc? tural abominations a*, tin* mother toward her de? formed baby?* -They'reugly, bul they're mine'' ?;in(l would bo equally rlolaal against change in any of i!ii-m. No doubt he ringa daily with the poet, ?' I know wh. tr 'ill my derricks lift I heir i ...tiy :.

He fins deprived tho dynamite fiend nho blows np public build? ings of more thsn half his terrors. To any dy? namite fiend hm boring designs sgaiast th** Mullett system of pnblio works, the American people ifould doubtless say what tho tliriity tanner saul to the incendiary a hom h<* cuught ul work oa bia well-insured barn-?"He careful not to let thc match go out." ABOLISH IT. It is uaw three months since two bow Park Commissioners were appointed, and the Hoard has had time to give some proof of its executive capability. Thc city has waited with charity and patience, bnt il can BO longer overlook thc tact that tin- Beard is nnal le tn giaap the ele? mentary idea of orgaaitstioo. Tim Park Com? mission still remains without a head, without members, without any division of labor and re? sponsibility, with,ait any policy beyond a COO I trolling purpose un the port of each Commis? sions! to obstruct the efforts ol another. Buspl rion, conflicts of authority. Insubordination, ir regular orders nml constant dead-tocks alto tither make a burlesque af anything like orderly and efficient administration. The | lioard makes a faiceof dealing witb its own i subordinates. An ignorant uml incompetent Official whoso acts nie questioned "appeals by counsel" and Insults his superiors, snd the spectators of the disgraceful scene cannot dis eover whether tho Commission is trying thc I superintendent or tho superintendent is in | vestigating the Connrission. Fiery underling ia encouraged in revolt* and the fact is adver? tised that the surest pl iii to gain the favor of two Commiasionera ia to abuse and snub the oilier two. No direct, straightforward work is practicable, and the best possible attainment is feeble compromise in which each side "gets Something " and gives a little lo the other. Perhaps it is too much to hope that the city n ill ever have a Park Commission of gentle men wbo have an intelligent notion ol what a i'ai k is and w hat it i*. for. It mai bo that iu the distant future we may have a Commission WboSC members have Mich nu appreciation of their own ignoranco that they will be willing to receive instruction from soino ono who does know. Hut il is ii present necessity 1 lint the Scandalous condition of things which has so long outraged common sense and eommon de? cency should cease.

Senator Mitchell, of Pennsylvania, when In? terviewed by a Chicago Timet reporter as to the prosiieot of Republican harmony tn his State, said that the pas? sage of the Civil Service bUl had g-reatly simplified the effoit to unite the factions there. Tbe division, he said, had boen caused by tho system of appointments In Penn? sylvania, which had been entirely controlled by tho political bosses. Tbls element of discord was now re? moved and the breach would be likely te close up. Tho Senator believed, however, tbat tbe Independent faction was sf tonger to day than ever. lu respect to the next Presidential etanvass h? was convlncea that the turill question would be the main lssne snd tbat the Republi? cans would win ir they made a wise nomination. Virginia may become an important factor in ihe National canvass of next year, snd In that even* the position tbe ItesdJ ii stern will occupy becomes interest? ing. In this connection The Richmond Whig prints a significant article pointing out what will probably be their course. It says that in no event will they ally ttaSBstvsa with the Bourbons, but they will aid thu party which favors protection to American industries. This can only mean that they will vote for the Repub? lican candidate for the Presidency. Whatever can bo said against the financial policy of tbe Readjuster*, and in tbls respect the Bourbons are no better off, lt mus: bo admitted that they have dealt with some of thc Issues iu Virginia In a wise and liberal spirit. Tbey have strengthened the achoo i.ystem, established a free ballot and opened before the ftate a new career of prosperity. The bourbons during their long reign did none of these things and only promised to do better wbeu they had lost tine opportunity of doing any thing. Ex-Senator Eaton, of Connecticut, haa al? most dropped out of tho Speakership contest, his nama not having been tnentionod for some time past. Uo le tun in tbe field, nevertheless, and like all his rlvsli um great confidence In bia success. The role which he pro? poses to play ls that of tho compromise candidate. But he ls likely to find that character somewhat crowded. Dorshelnier, of New-Vork, Converse, of Ohio, and Ham? mond, of tienrgia, are all cast for the same part- So Mr. Kn ton will probably meet wllh some rough Jostling. In fact all tho DSBBSSeBStS SSUdUsSSS for the speaker sblp are a little troubled for ronni, with thc single exec p tiou of Springer. Ho ba* the " raw material" platf'irm all to himself, no other aspirant oaring to much lt seem? ingly That gives him tho nee'ossary space in which to swing bis Jaw and makes bim less dangerous to lils rivals With lox and Springer In the rliig the sawdust will need raking over pretty often. Ana perhaps thut ls where the compromise caudlelates oould make them? selves useful. Let Mr. Eaton frec?c to a rake at o.ice. The few Democratic paper* that have a just couceptloc of tbe political situation are continually Basetting what suit of a party The Democratic party should be. This constant reiteration has apparently led some of them to Imagine tbat the liemocricy has really be eoiiio whai tbey want lt to bc. They accordingly re iel in the Ides of a great aud reformed party earu.-st fur the right and devoted to tbe Interest nf the people, nml Imagine Heit th. y see shoals of RepublleMiis coming atti to lt. The Qnleeiton Want, tor Instill,.', says: " Numerous aide Journals, heretofore giving a st.a dy snppart to tho Republican party, would seemingly have no alternative but t>* support thc Democratic party on a purely coled! uctlve an.l conservative policy.
