The general treaty between GfCUl Britain nnel the T'nite>d Slates, incomparably the most Important of the kind eret made, is row fully negotiated. It tvsis signed on Monday by Sir Julian Pannoo fote gad Mr. olney e.n behalf of their respeetlre Governments, and sent to tho lulled Slates Senate for rntilieation, which, after due delib oratiem. it will probably receive, lt will then bei-eiine law. and for af least six years there? after will govern absolutely the settlement of all ordinary disputes that may arise between tho two ooiintrli's. As tho ocourre'iico of any ex true ird inn ry dispute, ii.volvinj; National honeir ami territorial integrity, Is ten> improbable te> be takes into aiooiint. ihe treaty is a substan? tial fSaraatee of amicable relations. As neb its consummation mav well be regarded as marking an epoch In tho affairs of nations of moro than ordinary nenonevnee. To the gene ral principles ot tho treaty there can be no val iel objection. They stand approved in ndvanes by the common-sense of tho Nation. In various Important details the treaty as now d'.se-losod differs radically from the forecasts of lt hitherto made. These details demand especial attention and some nf them may provoke- criticism; though ou lhe whole they will probably be pp proved as really better thnn what wore ar tirst KiiggHatted. In tho first place, the treaty is nor a perpetual nor an indefinitely enduring oue, but ls te> la?i for a Specified tenn of years, namely live. Until the expiration of that term, neither party can withdraw from it. That, will assure it a fair trial and prevent its botaf discredited anel abrogated the moment ono party feels souse- dil satisfaeiion with its working* After live years it may be teiniinaied by either party on one year's notlee. but lhere Is ground for liv,-ly hoi* Itel sue-b uoiiev will never be given. In the second plaoa, it does not provide for tlie' e?tnhltfchiueni of any permanent intM-ualIonal tribunal, with sun gomanwaisl authority. Sueh a scheme was formerly suggested, aud it wi- area announced that it wns being emai? led in the treaty, but it was widely regarde-d ax e hliiie-rical. and there will be much satisfac? tion al learning that lt has been abandoned Instead, there lb to b? a special tribunal ap? pointed for the M'tiii-iin-nt or cie-j, eoatroTotay thal may arise, i system whioh win generally be reckoned fat more logical and practicable Iii ile- 'hird place, the proposition that the King of Sweden and Norw av sh.mid bo a permanent nifiiibe-r of the tribunal has boen dropped, and it is now agreed that he shall be appealed ta OUly wh"Ti the tribunal falls to agree In ehoos lng an ampire, and ?hen not to terre as umpire liireicoir. but merely to appoint one. lt is ak., sf Interval to observe that the derision e.f H majority of the tribunal shall be linal. wit lunn ippeni, excepting ls cases Inrotrlng National Honor en- territorial Integrity. The lattes case's it?- io be submitted to s spools! tribunal of sin, three from eacb country, uitbeut an .umpire' te> ?ast ? deciding vutn; mid if live of the Sis shall ?grus upon tin sward ii shall lie final; or If a bare majority e>f four set agree, thai ewsrd lhall be final unless protested against within three mouths: and finally, in e-aso of sueh pro? test) or of ti tie veil,-, so lhal no valid award ls made, there shall be no recourse to wsr until the mediation e.; one or more friendly Powers lia- bees Invited, Surety, with sueh safeguards i?r tho penes all dangers of war between the two countries will be remitted io ths Greek Killen-ls. Upon sueh a re-snit no congratulations can bo loo hearty, it is Justly obsessed by "Ilie Lon? don Times'' that tia- policy embodied In Hie treaty "has obtained ti (tedded and unusual "degree nf approval among the American peo "ph'." That ls quite true, and it may well bo believed to be equally true concerning the Brit? ish people. The tone of the British press, as bearii ai this distance, is one not, perhaps, so Hinch eif exultation as of what is much l>etter. of deep and sincere satisfaction. There ls un einestion.ibiy a determination on ihe part of ihe Governments snd peoples of both countries io make-an honest .i'i'..n i.? put International re lations on a permanent basis of reasonableness llliel JUStlCe. To oppi.se or even let doubt th<? success of such an effort WOUld seem like trea? son to humanity, 'ihe morn] effeel of this treaty upon tbe psrtiei io lt must be great, ac? customing iiiein io look upon International elis puies as subjects of friendly discussion rather than ol' threatenings and war. and il will be surprising if tho Influence of it does not pres ontiy extend to otin-r nations, The spectacle of lhe two gre\it English-speaking Towers of ihe world formally decreeing that, between themselves, lhere shall 1?? ne, more war ls a source of sueh Inspiration as does not come to mankind more than once in a ceniury. When it does eoiu<\ it lifts lhe whole rare forward and upward to a plane from which there must be no backsliding. There will be. we may confi? dently trust, no thought on either side of abro gnting this treaty anti going back to the old rule of force': but only a generous rivalry bo tweeMi Britannia and Columbia in maintaining it in spirit ami in lett<r. in Inculcating ungrudg? ing acquiescence In tbe decrees of tho tribunals, snd In making relationship between tho two countries so amiable thar cases for trial will be? come beautifully less in number, and Iho power of the treaty, like the groat laws of nature, come te> lie realized only through its never being violated or challenged. VI XK'lEAL ART WORKS. In thal article of the proposed charter which relates to the Department of Parka there is a section providing that "no slat ne or piece of "sculpture or work of art of any sort, lo the "nature of a public monument or memorial, "shall be- erected or placed upon any ground "en- within any building belonging lo tho city "ol' New-York, as constituted by this ucl. with "oin the approval of tho Mayor, the president "of the Council, the president of the Sculpture "Society, if sue-h organisation be then existing, "and tin" president of tin' Fine Arts Fedora "lion, if then existing." The intention of this prescription ls excellent, and in general it might work we-11. At le-ast it would almost in? evitably prevent lhe instalkilion in public places of such monstrosities as now defae-e the eily and exasperate all intelligent persems who behold thom. This would indeed be. If not, In the resounding phrase of Sheridan, "one of the "most ample mercies accomplished for inim "kind since the creation of tho world." an ox eeeelingly useful service and one well worth obtaining by this means, if no better way of achieving the same resuli could be devised. Bul tlienigh lt may possibly be even moro de? sirable to escape bad works of art, so-called, than to get good ones, nevertheless a charter provision which is better Sdspted to tho fer? mer than to the latter purpose is not entirely satisfactory, lt is not wise, as it seems to us. ie, invest a single Individual with an absolute' veto pnwi'r in siie-h matters ns this. Human prejndlc<*s .'ire strong, and they certainly aro neit weaker In respect to works of art than in other directions, or among artists than among iheir fellow-men. This objection io ihe section of the charter which we are considering has been pointed out by several e-rities. including Mr. Elihu Boot, but there is another objection to which we be? lieve no allusion has he'on maeie. The- vein peiwer is conferred not only on tho Mayor snd the- prealdenl of Hie Council, who aro public official)*, deriving the-ir authority from lhe peo? ple ami responsible to them for its exercise, but likewise upon the> prealdenl of ihe Sculpture Society anel the preside-nt of the Fine Arts Fed erstlon, who aro ne>t appointed directly or in? directly b.v the people, and are only morally accountable in a general sense to the public This, as it seems to ns. is an Illogical anel iin proper bestowal of authority, for reasons whie-h eb, neit iii tho legist relate te) the character eif any Individual eir the- esteem in which he is held by the community. It is ns if the Con Hellier, for example, were forbidden to perform any financial ae-t without 'he approval of the preside-nt of ibo Park Bank. Both of those objections to this provision of the charter are obviated by tho scheme of the Pins Ans Federation, whie-h proposes thc creation of a commission consisting of the. Mayor, the preside>nt of ibe Metropolitan Mu? seum, the president of the Sew York Library, the pre'sieient of the Hrooklyn Institute- of Arts and Sciences, and six other citizens appointee! by the Mayor from a list selected by the Kine Arts Federation, every head of a depart mont in aeldltlon neting ex-otlieio as a mom ber of tho commission in all malters spi' ciflcslly relating to his department. This com? mission woulei be uusalaried anel would subject tlie city te> ve-ry slight expense for any pur pose; a majority of tis members would be- re? sponsible, under ihe terms of tln>ir appoint lueiit. to the> community fe>r a proper exercise. of their authority, nnel a majority rote wooli! decide all que-stieins. We dei not assume thal iii.-, piss is incapable of Improvement in mai lera .ef detail, but the principle of lt is se,iuiel WV lie,pe ihat with sueh uiodilioations as coin petenl ciitics msy agree upon it may ba sub siiiiiii-'l foi iii ? original provision of the char ter. ?lilt. A/.ir KASSAS GOVER.XOR. The new Populist governor of Kansas, Jobi \V. Leedy, blew into office yesterday with the whirl snd swssp of a cyclone S0,000 wonb I long, opeuing with an exposition *?f "pro > "fouuel regret for the misfortunes of our more I "pretentious sisters of the F.ast," he proceed) , to congratulate Kansas "upon the many sun^)> ' "blessings lhal have fallen to us In these ad "rerse times," ??u.' of which very dearly in bit , own Judgment I* Lscdy himself, other Mess i lpgs are- that ihe savings institutions of Kan sus give gratifying evidences of stability, w bili , 'ihe failure of Kreai coin uer < lui Institution) ! "brinus sad calamity to the chief capitals "whose misfortunes accumulate": that "while "those who clamor fe.r alms in the streets << "ihe crowded cities sre many, those who ssel j "assistance from our ready public bounty ar j "fow": mid that while the children In "Hie Na ! tiem's me.st popular metropolis" are nntaugbl unfed and unhoused, Kanaaa finds ample- bonn j room and school room for every Kansas child This ls a very cheerful picture, painted be Leeds in sons of tbs best language le-ft o\c: from ihe Iste campaign. The older states, while feeling deeply grateful for the sympathy ami commiseration >f Kansas, will M doubt unite tueest cordially In Leedy'a ooogratulations ie, the- people of that State upon 'heir enviable condition of hspplnosssnd prosperity. Nothing gives 'the more pretentious sisters of the- Best" greater gratlficstlon than lo bs wltnessea eif the contented and prosperous condition of their j more modest and utterly unpretentious sisters In ibo West. This being ihe- true stnte of i'm' csse we no tice with some' surprise not unmixed with pain that Oovernor Leedy, wbo bus evidently been misinformed in the metter, tskes occsslon to sdminlster winn is fen- Kansas a gentle snd dignified reproof of certain newspapers in New York ami Chicago rm' their "puny ami pre? sumptuous e-riii.-isiu" of Kansas. "Willi a "cheerful audacity thai almost challenges sd "miraiion." says Hie Governor, "<;rnb Street "scribblers on a renal press, which panders to "the mosi vie'ieuis instincts ol' semi-ctrillsed "foreign colonies like .New-Vork City and Chi "cago, witta seml-bsrbsrlc splendor ai ilie apex "ami semi-barbaric squalor ni the base of ihelr "social life, have puny and presumptuous e-ritl "cism of those whose shoes!rings they aro not "worthy te> unloose." There are few things in Kansas literature liner than ibis. And In' clinches lr with tho remark, not entirely irrele? vant, though Kansas is not as a State- at least - anywhere near five thousand years old and has no Pyramids lei speak ol: "The dogs of "Fcypt have barked at the 1'yramids unan "swered for live thousand year-." As n mat? ter of fae l, we suppose Hie elogs have not really expected an gnawer; if they bsd they would have barked at the Sphinx insie-ad of the Pyra? mids, though the result might have been the same. All ihe same*, tli<> figure ls very strik? ing. Few public documents have ever con? tained anything like lt. We commend lt lo the attention e.f Professor Vrooman, of Parsons, Kan., who ls drilling lhe "crude talent" of the Slate In stump speaking, as an uncommonly good piece on which to oxere'lso. Passing from tho sentimental to the practical, tho Covornor discusses tho railroad question ot considerable length. 11^ recommends the passage- of a law fixing maximum freight rates nnd that the Railroad Commissioners be em? powered io adjust far, sand freight rates in the Stnte. Tin* railroads being owned by citizens of the "more pretentious" Siale-s. there would bo no difficulty whatever in adjusting faros and freight rates lo the satisfaction of the peo? ple of Kansas. This would make them, If pos? sible, more contented .'iud prosperous than they now are. Hut the thing io do in onler to In? sure' absolute .iusiie-e. he- says, is feir thee States west of tho Mississippi Pive-r to build a road of their own to tidewater by the shortest and most direct route. If Texas ami Nebraska would Join Kansas in building such a road to QslveSton he thinks the expense of building it "would be> merely nominal when compared "with tho vast sums of money that woulei lie "saved to lhe' citisens of thoso State-s by the "lowering e.f rate's." This is practical states? manship that is practical Kansss statesman? ship, lt is an open question, though, whether, Upon full diSCUSSiotl eif Ibo proposition, the' pe-e> ple of the-se llire-e- State's will ne>t decide, In? stead of building ra iln ea els themselves, to eon linne ihe- time-honored practice of le-ning other poeiple build the re.mls. while they make tho rate's. Still, tho proposition has great merit. 'rhere> might mit be se> much money in it as fiovernor Leedy anticipates, but the builders woubl harvest lots of useful experience. At a tillie when Waite, of Coloraelo, failing to free Cuba, has retired to private life; wben Altgeld. of Illinois, has been shut off from speaking several thousand words of farewell; wh<en Pennoyer, of Oregon, makers no demon? stration except when he returns to tlie treas? ury half his salary ns Mayor eif Portland; wh<>n Stone, eif Missouri, has subsided, anel Mrs. Lease has left the stump fm' the moro quiet and subduing Btmosphers of the le-e-turo plat? form, the' sdrenl eif Leedy will be boiled as a Ismiii le) the whe.le Nation. Hs e'.mies in with 20.000 words and every Indication e.f multi, tnebnons vocables yet in stock, lie snye? Kan? sas ls a pillar of cloud by day anel a pillar eif fire by night. She ls indeed, especially the pil , lar of cloud. REOPEN THE IHPOST (ASE. Tho sealing e.f Mr. iMipont in the I'nlted States Se-nate offers a complete solution of the complicated and disgraceful situation in Dela? ware. Nothing else si-ems likely to prevent the combination <ef ibo struggle over the Sena? torship. and lo give tho Stale Its rightful rep? resentation in Congress, lt would remove the temptation to steal tbe Legislature under which the Democrats bare fallen and it would put an end io lim Addicks pretensions, which have been so discreditable U) the State- that some eif the BepubUcsns lhere lui ve preferred to rest quietly and soe the Democrats steal Assembly seats rather than join with Addicks in the or? ganization of ti protesting Legislature. Moro over it wendel be lining the right thing by Dela? ware and by Mr. Dupont, and that after all is the important thing, for no consideration of ex pediency can e-xctiso an unjust doeisiem of an electoral contest. There is not a shadow of a doubt that Henry A. Dupont was oiewte.,! l'nlted Btatea Senator from Delaware', receiving the voles of a major? ity of tho total membership of tho Legislature. By every consideration eif law. precedent ami common-sense f?overnor Watson was forbidden 10 usurp legislative functions while holding tho office e.f Uovornor. Th" Constitution of Delaware specifically forbids him to be* Senateir and lioveriior at tho same lime, anil for days after tin- death of Governor Msrrll he obeyed ihe Constitution. Then, nrge-d by tin- Addicks men as a parl e.f their rule or ruin policy, he invaded the- Joint Assembly, forcibly ie?<?u pew Mssieeii of the pri'sieii'iifs gavel ami undertook to conduct the proceedings. Afterword, resum? ing his functions as Governor, be arbitrarily refused tocertifj Mr. Dupont's credentials and see made up a technical ease fen- a contest at Wsshlngton. There tbe question was signed at hugill and the justice of Mr. Dupont's e-laim amply proven. When the vole was taken he was excluded by only one vole. That advene majority was not based mi reason or law, but only on partisanship ami petty spite. Mr. < tray anel the Other 1?? nu?< r:itD- Senators wished to keep ibe seal vacant to bold down the Re? publican vol.-. and in hopes ni' tin- election e.f a Democratic Senator this winier.

Tho same wretched business was repeat? ed, on a smaller seale-, In the first Ashantee campaign ami again in the futile mareil to the rolie-f of Gordon at Khartoum. And now we soe lt once more in India, where famine ls de? stroying people- by seores of thoiisiinds. There was ample- warning. But tba officials heeded lt um lhe 'little tin gods on wheels" whose delinquencies anei red-tspe methods Mr. Kip? ling has so scathingly set forth. They content? ed themselves with watching and whistling for rain, whie-h would assure a harvest some months hence, bul could do not tho slightest ginni in tbs awful emergency eif present need. The result is now resealed. Deaths may soon lie numbered by millions, whie-h readiness ami energy might have' presented. When once aroused the British Government is the supreme incarnation of tremendous and triumphant en? ergy, bul it often takew a weary while to rouse lt, In which time disaster and ruin have their ?way. The trouble gt Bombay ls due to oilier causes. The local ollie-hls there seem to have exercised all possible promptness and energy in dealing with tho plague, but all In vain. There can ba no Question of the- seriousness of the situation, though it cannot, of course, be nearly as bad as some ill-advised reports have- represented it to be. The other day. for example, it was saiel that the weekly death-rate was 200 to the 1,000, which was evidently preposterous. Por tbe plague hns been raging fe>r about three and a half months, and In thal time, at that rate, it would practically base exterminated tho popu? lation of the city, reducing it from about a mill? ion to some twenty thousand. No ono Imuc ines, of course, that there have been nearly a million deaths; probably not a tenth of that number, nor S twentieth of it. Still, the men? tality is dreadful ami tie' danger of extension of the epidemic to other crowded cent ros of population is ve-ry great. There need be- ihi fear of Its reaching ibis country, nor even tho en? lightened communities of Western Europe; but lu Rgypt ami Turkey and Southern Russia whore it ls already reported to have got a foot? hold the outlook is grave-. It is Hie '?black death" which devastated Europe centuries hu... and there sre many towns and cities whose eru? ditions to-day are as inviting te) ir and tis fa? vorable to Its propagation as in the- Dark Age-s. The- authorities at Rombsy aro making ti gal? lant fight, as well they may, for the issue-s af stake nre- the' lives of millions.
