For nfter being IINatod, ei*t nt lib? erty and then again arrested, the two deaf mute ntssjsjjsjd brother? have been once more re? stored to freedom, the Grand Jury having yester? day dismissed the complaint against them on the ground that there was not ?ufhVlent evldouco to hold them for trial. The police are, therefore. In much the ?ame position with regard to the crime as they were eight.days ago, with this difference, that the murderer has had that inter? val in which to cover his tracks. That the enormous population within the lim? it? of tho Greater New-York will, before many >ears, bo compelled to reach beyond present aource? for an adequate supply of water is COO? ???*ded by thoughtful people, and the suggestion of Mr. Alfred T.

Tin?!.? are three ?lasses of persona now paying special attention to Hi?' local Republican situa? tion who seem particularly anxious thai Ihe protesi of honest Republicans In ibia county agalnsl the fraudulent usurpation of executive functions by tbe Lautcrbacb so-called Repub? lican County Committee should take th?.? form <>f a boll from ili?' piny. They are: First, Demo? crats, win? naturally enough rejoice in anything that portends division In the ranks of ihelr opponents; second, the Mugwump Contingent whose riding principle is that anything coherent, organized and unified must necessarily be Inlqjul toua in ?*s alms ami totally depraved in ?s meth? ods, Tin? members <>f this select and superior body ?>f folks if ihey can ho called a body naturally delight in anything thai contains ihe promise ?t ili;?? at of disintegration, disturbance nii'l scatteratlon. The ihlrd class consista ??' the adherents ?.f ihe [?nuterbacb faction, who are mm li more interest???] in retaining possession ??' tho machinery of the ? irty for buslueaa purposee of their own than in harmonizing and unifying the party upon a basis ??!' <?? mmon honesty, which, while strengthenim* Ihe party, would weaken their own hold up"i> power. Theselast have been exhibiting considerable activity and manifesting unusual indications of excitement during the lasl two ? ?r ihre? daj -. To quell this intellectual dlsturliancc and re? tti ? ? calm to the minila of all these persons, The Tribune takes l? ave to aay that all of them are By Ing wide and beating the air over their own vain Imaginings Tbe protest of bon?>s1 Republicans agalnsl tbe I-auterbach usurpation does not In Hu- remotest sense threaten the integrity of the Republican party or portend disruption even within the compara lively narro? limits of New York County. Its significance is almply I and Tlie Tribune is only repeating now whit It haa 1??? ? sa* Ine fiom the time \\ ben the I-autei bach conspiracy Brat began unfolding its. If tint thousands of honest Republicans In this county will not recognize the legitimacy ??f the claim which the so-called Republican County Committee makes to recognition as the executivi? body of tbe piny. Will they liolt, then? Rldlcu louai Why should they? What Is there for them to bolt against? Certainly nothing In the, car ?linai doctrines of the partj. They have not '?? en ??haiii.''??!, nor is there any effort on foot t?? change them. Republicans who believe In Prote tl ?u ami ?Sound Money, bave no Idea of leaving ? party because tir?? machinery of party urganlia tion in this county ins fallen Into the banda of a ?'?irrupt gang of ? ?liticai traders and Bell sedi ars Tiny are noi s?? weak and silly as to kick themselves ?nit of ?? party in whoso principles they have an abiding faith Jusl because a local branch of the jinny machinery has fallen Into dishonest bands That would be tbe height of absurdity, Sor is there any ground for a l? It on account of diffi roncea of opinion regarding the n? st po liticai event, which is the selection of d< I? ?aten to the convention to nominate a candidate f,?r President There is no hostility t? Governor Morton as tbe candidate of the Republicana of the whole Btate for that high pince, and aa to any succi ediog political evenl there haa lx ?p ? ? development "f conditions that would justify serious consideration of a boll on ace? tint of l remote possibilities. There may be, and no doubt are, serious objections In the minds ?>f many Republicana t" the selection of seventy two delegates to the National Convention wh would 1"? simply so many pawns in the hands of Mr. Platt, to be played In the game after ho has need Governor Morton's good name and abused hli good nature up to the point where sacrifice becomes necessary and compromise use fill. Rut they have so much confidence In the ultimate good sens?.? of that representative body ?if Republicans that they hav?? no fear that Mr. Platt with his seventy-two votes or any other ?Boa? with similar potentiality, will bring about an unlit nomination, or one which would furnish tho pretext for a bolt Even if Mr. Platt should he enabled by bis control of the machinery of the party in swing tbe whole delegation at bis own sweet will, there Is nothing in that situa timi?revolting, ai it musi h??, to tl)<? mitais <?f honest an?l self-respecting Republicans t?> war? rant a bolt. No; ther?! is nothing whatever in ila? talk which the Putt-L?auterbacb people are Indulging In about a holt of the ''better elementM Whether Mr. l'latt and Mr. Lauterbacb have or have not any uso f?ir It which, they say with effusi?,n, they bave not -the ""better element" will stay In the Republican party, it will stay without sacrifichi;: principle <>r self respect, it will stay because that is its proper place, it will stay because of the conviction that the Republican party has a record ?nd a history which are the rightful inheritance of its "hitter element." It will claim its inheritance. Ami it will not h.? driven out hy ilio I'latts an.I I.antei'baebs <>r l?.v any other Rosses or combination ?>f Bosses Right here hi New-York County it will stay, it will be palient, It will wait. Ami some time It will happen maybe not to-day, nor to-morrow, but s??me time?that the executive body of the Republican party, founded in fraud and perpetu? ated in crime, will ????? that ii is In violation of good policy, as well aa of common decency, to sneer at the "better element" In the course <>f * aong-and-dance Jubilee in Avenu?? a. ARMY AM) SAVY IN CONG RE 8 8. At the first session of every new Congress many hills are presented f??r ih?? reorganization Of the Army ami the Navy. This year the Army hills are even more numerous than usual. Major Getter?] Nels.ni A. Mil's, the rommanding ucii ernl ?>f the Army, reinforces what The Tribune has already aaaerted when he says that on?? ?great obstacle t<> legislation concerning the reorganisa? tion of the Army has been ihe want of harmony limoni; otticers, and the efforts that have been ma?le by Individuals t<> urge special legislation that would in some way <lire?'tly or Indir? ?tlv heuetlt themselves, regardless* of i?ossible serious Injury to Others. There is already much rcas,?n t?? dotiht th?? paaaage of any of the hills for Army reoraranliation at ihis session; aud, while the condition of the Treasury Is one of the seri? ous qut'xtiinis that stand In the way, it is tot su much ?m this account that action ?>n the hills la delayed, as (??-cause of the StTOOg differences of opinion, am??ui; <illiceis who ?wi the eara ?>f mem? bers.

The situation suggest? that there is, in the Army ar least, loo much or too strong Individualism when it romes ?? ? question of ; passing a law to pul the servi.m whal is be- \ lleved to bea modern footing. Sp?cial legislation : la, a? ? Denti Mili*? ?ays, vicious li gtsutlon, find all efforts 11 benefll a few at the expense of many are certain to meet with strong opposition and result In failure.

SETTLING THE SEAL QUESTION. Tin? Foreign ? elation? Committee of the Sen? gte is about to report favorably a bill designed to end, once for all, tli?? controversy about the fur seals of Behring Sea. Briefly stated, it pro rides for three things: First, for the prompl conclusion and proclamation of n temporary modua vivendi between this Government and Great Britain, Japan and Rusela for limiting the yearly catch of seals and for protecting them from Indiscriminate slaughter. Next, for further negotiation? with the ?ame (?"overninente for a permanent system of preserving snd cultivating the seals. And finally, In case neither <tf the foregoing end? can Lh? attained, for tb? Immedi? ate extermination 11 the ???nl?, or at leasi of all ih?? beni? which make the Prlbyloff Islands their borne. Thai 1? ti nlemplated only as a last des? perate resort, Bui II is contemplated, and ?

GREAT BRITAIN ASH RUSSIA. Tha Busso-Turklsb treaty Is, of course, ? tre? mendous blow to the old anti RnsaiaO policy of England, it is a detractive commentary upon the "Asian mystery" business to which Disraeli s?? largely devoted his spectacular talenta it lniist be h humiliating thing to Lord Hallsbury. Nor, indeed, I* it a thin?? that the civilised world in general <"in regard with pleasure, for it is an alliance between two s'-mi barbarous Powers, and will Insure the continuance of ?aml-barbar One rule In the K?st. This hitter Is, however, sudi a consideration as does not greatly Count lu European diplomacy, which la usually wholly selil?.h In Its alms and motives. Apart from mere human?? sentiment, then, there is no reasoa why (?real itrltaln should not aciptlesc?? in this new move of itiissia; nor why she should not actually coma to a perfectly friendly understanding with ilio ??reat Northern Power. Whatever ? -: ? ? ??? - the may bave had It, years past for opposing and thwarting Russia at ?very step, she can bave none now, unies? on the extreme ?round of resist Ing the development of? reactionary, tyrannical and half-savage Power, for the sake of humanity and civilization in general. Constantinople I? no longer the gateway to India. The Sin?/. Canal has taken Us place a? such. England practically owns the canal, and Egypt itself. She has therefor.? lust inter?s! in Constantinople, and may well afford to Ii t Rusais have It. Thai will make Rtuwlfl a \l, lit. p ,???,??

And it would be the part of wisdom to lai Rosala reach nnfroten seas In the M'llll? rraneati rath? than in the Persian i.ulf. In Asia, tix>, ther?? may well be peace between the old-time rivals. Suppose Russia gets ? foothold in Cores or Northern t'liina, for an always open terminal purl for her Siberian railroad, what barn cutid It do Eng? land? Commercially, It coitili never hope to rival Hong Kong. Prom a military point of view, it could not menai?,? ihe Empire. England coni,? put Uve ships then? to Russls's one any day. Be? sides, there Ih Japan, building a navy of a hun? dred and fifty vessels. With her for an ally England could langa at anything Rnaata salajht ever luluu to ilo In tin?*,, ,??,??t. Ur U?lf,.nr rei"};niz?'?l lasts* facts when !:.? said, th?? other ?lay. !n the tone of a real statesman: "l fot my "part frankly1?' ite that, so far, for example, from '-regarding with f?"ir and jealousy a commercial ".nul?! for Russia in th.?
