THEY All" MISTAKES. A member of the Legislature was ?1110101 on Saturday as saying: "if tt"? Police Magistrate? -bill becomes a law. it will be in such shape "that Mayor Strong will not benefit by ii." This is a significan) remark, coming as it does from one of thoaa men in public station who are obediently executing th?* purpoaa of a pri? vate citizen to reduce the -Mayor of New York to subjection, if possible, and if not, t?> imt>?> tence. it reveals very dearly, though perhapa not. Intended t" ?lo so, the point of view from which these ni-'ii contemplate their responsibil? ity, ?mil their real attitude toward tin? people of this dty. Por we do nol h*?ar from any quar- | ter a denial that Mayor Strong la endeavoring t . discharge the duty with which he was lu i by a great majority of the voten last November, nor is .any respectable evidence pre? sented to show* thai he is not satisfying th-ar expectation, it i> not pretended, furthermore, that h?' has any ?cheme of personal aggrandise? ment in hand, ?a* is actuated l'y any aecret am? bition whatsoever. Nobody chargea him with ;,-i Intention to build up a faction bearing his name and committed to his private Interests. Indeed, one of 111 ? - accusations bronghl au.imst minen! It? publican is that he is nut a politician, as hi- oppt Denla understand ilia' What, then, do they really mean when they say that "if tin* Police Magistrates bill becomes "a law. i; will be ?a su? h shape thai Mayor "Strung will nol benelit by It"? Tins is obvi? ously a threat, not merely a prediction. Hut who is threatened? Certainly nol Mayor Strong. II" lias slid more thin once that in- has no pleasure or Interest in such a controversy with the Legislature as bis enemies are apparently anxious to foment. He has never made ihe s* erbtest claim 1 ? lawmaking functions. He is content 10 ?I" his duty as be s?'? s i;, leaving quito cheerfully and s?nsj!iiy to others the ?!i"i?.f doing ??;? neglecting theirs. He is not looking for benefits for himself from the Police Magistrates bill, "!? from any other legislative project. There la no r ison to suppose that lus tranquillity will be disturbed by ih,? proceed _- ??;' tin-.' for whose character and conduct hi 1 'is no responsibility, ami <<\or whom be does ii"! assume !?? exercise any control what -. Nor is there, from observation of his ? thus far "f from a reasonable forecast <>f bis course hereafter, th" least occasion to apprehend that his reputation will be endan? gered by anything which th.- legislature may ; do or leave undone. The Mayor baa come to be 1 thoroughly well understood In this community, and this.? whose welfare for the neu, three years will depend more or leas largely upon the way in which be is :,. exercise his lawful [lowers, whatever they may be, are not worry? ing ?'?: his account. .Mai?.!' Strong is by this time w?n understood elsewhere also; ?it Albany, tor example. The men there who announce their enmity to him I are not ?!.?veii as !?> his desires and Inten 1 tioiis. When, therefore, they say that "if tin? "Police Maglatratea bill becomes a-law, it will 1 "be in such shape that Mayor Sirom: will not 1 "t" ::? in by it." they confess, consciously or un iously, to a determination that, the people shall ii.,t bcneill by it. That is the significance of their threat. The people are to be sacrificed to promote the selfish ami d?pstruetlve ambition of an Individual There is nol even a pretence of denying thai th.' bill i- Intrinsically a good ; bill, a bill that ought t" pass ,,n ??s merits and 1 would have passed ?before now, if th" dem ?n i tie. ,1 ..f h radie,'I reform or (he police system bad been ih" only consideration. i' ? legislators who thus divulge their or ,1 proclaim their subservience are willing to betray i'i" people, and Imagine that it Is safe mv tin in. Tiny at*" mistaken. TAMMASY LEGACIES OF EVIL. The Legislature can have tow more urgent i and Imperative duties than the duty of -reliev? ing th,- people "f New-York from the affliction of i!,.- present police curt bench. No respect a ?Mu offer a semblance of a reason why our present Police .lushes should remain in ? ih".- for more uni.- than is necessary to put them out of place by the action of the ?Legis? lature ami tiie Governor, There are some things so ?,bvi.,iis that there is really no need of argu? ment about them. Tin- ?police courts ?.f this city bave h.-, a for years a Dulsance ami disgrace. 'Ihe legislature might well have taken up this matter of abolishing ?air present police court bench at an early date in January it is ?i great wrong 1.? th.- metropolig to compel people to groan and t-i suffer under the burden am! the Infliction of Ihe Police Court Justices who have brought so much shame upon the community.

Germany and Frai.are excluding A.rl ??an cattle and meats, and II is probable thai other beet countries will revive the hostile dis? criminations which were removed under the Harris,ai Administration. The Roclprociiy pol? icy has been abandoned, and all ibe advantages derived from twenty agreements with European and tropical countries bave been lost. The .-\ port trade has gteadily declined.

The one-tenth differential against tier man lugara has been made the pretext for the revival of dlacriminatiuns against American iiK'uts, and a. tariff war from which Russia ins everything to gain la now Impending between the United .States and the European Continent. All these facts bare bren elaborately sel forth in our Washington correspondence, a ud a strong contraat has bren drawn between the pree Ucal effecta of Republican and Dem ?cratlc poll cleg upon the foreign commerce of ihe country.

Briefa by eminent lawyers, already mentioned In newg columns, point out grave de fecta In the law which may almost wholly defeat Da enforcei.I. They ?how, first, thai the tai payer fully perferms his duly If he furnishes to the collector, when called upon, the fact? necessary to make up a proper return, and be is not bound to reek oui il.ffleer. or to rend any return to him, and. second, that the dep utj collectors arc nol public officers, and then fore cnnnol lawfully obtain the ?Mails of these accounts from Individuals and make up the re turns, as the law attempts to provide. Hence if taxpaycra generally decline, as ihej have a right, !" s.u.I or rurulsh any r* turns, bnl wall U)i;il the collector ?ills upon them, and if they refuse, as ?hey have a right, lo make any dis? closure of their busln ws or incomes lo a dep u;v. but mak?- such disclosure to the collector only, b will come to pass that only those upon whom be may be able lo ?all In person can lie compelled to pay any tax. Aa there are two collectors for the entire city of New-York, and in ?:,.? country only one for man] counties cov ering an extensive territory* it follows that the greal majority of persona having Incomes over ?st.?m?i will not !>?? obliged to pay either t.?\ or penalty, because the law Is so blunderingly drawn that, it cannot be enforced. These opinions real npon ihe difference be tween ?Sections 20 and Sections ?'?"! of the act. Section 29 makea II the 'buy of all persona to render a return before the day provided by law. Bui Section B4, embodying a modification ?if Section "..17."., Revised Statute?, provides tha' "if .my person balde !.. pay any ?buy <?r "tax shall fail i?? make and exhibit a list for "return required by law, but shall consent to "disclose th?* particulars of any and all th?? "property, ?-''?"is, wares and merchandise, ani "des and Objecta liable to pay any duty or "tax. then, ami in thai case, it shall i?.- the duty "of the collector or deputy rolled ?r to make "sii"h list or return, which, being distinctly "n o?, consented lo anil signed and v. rifled bj "the person liable lo taxation, maj be received ".is the list of such i? rson." Thai the .!? puij collector is nol a public officer, empowered lo hear evidence and decide npon the amount of tax payable, appi ?ira fr in ilc< ? ie Su? preme Courl of th" i nil I SI it? s and of the Court of Appeals in this State, h ? these are duties which can be pi rformi d by p oflicera only. The Constitution requires that all public ' all be npi*oiiited bj dent, the he.idi of departments or the ??.-is, and it is hehl In decisions lhal Congress bas nol power i" create public officers otherwise ap ; pointed. As ihe deputies? whom the law at? tempts to clothe with judicial |>ower are In I appoint"'! by the collectors, It is maint liie-?1 ? bey cannot exercise this pou ? r, and in c. the taxpayi r luis a rlghi lo wall until th :? himself ? ills, so thai ihe fact? and ? \ i dence showing whal Incom i blc may be submitted to that ?'Hier. l oder ordinary circumstances, i- might nol - ? ? ? i the part of a ; d citizen to < inbarrass tii?' enforcement of a law up n which iho Gov? ernment r?'li?'s for revenue.

Unless some of the ablest hu yera are In erro?-, th - tax law is not merely S" unjusi in gplril and purpose as to arouse the utmost opposition, but is so defect? iva In form thai the pi ople, by merely gi on their l? gal rights and declining t.? disclose their business except to the collector himself, can practically render lis genera] enfon Imp ssible. anything lo nuirn.
