We do not Imagine that Governor Black'a at? titude would have been mlalnterpreted, outside of tne coteiie which hoped to make a t.n.1 of him, if he had nol permitted this notice to be Berved; bul nevertbeleea it is ?aatlafactory t.? see the conspirators brought up with a round timi al this early stage in their proceedlngi. They are no-.v forced t<? ir?> about their wretched busi? ness in another way. und we do not believe thai they will lind the courts any limn? serviceable than they have found ihe Governor. THE PEOPLE NOT CLOWES. A characteristic bit ?>f demagogy is tbe Tam? many attaek upon Intelligence. It is ostensibly ??ailed forth In defence of a Tammany appointee who baa sh-.wn himself unable t.? spell correct? ly or even Intelligibly the most familiar worda, This inability, it appears, is not only not t<> his discredit, but it is actually a ?recommendation. Other thlnga being equal, Tammany ?pr?f?ra men wh.? cannot spell correctly to those wh?? can. That ?principle is d?lib?rai ly set forth by one of tbe Wlgwam'e foremost spokesmen, i.? wit, ?Senator Thomaa P. Grady. n?- says in s?> many worda that ignorance of th?.- rudlmenta ?.f Kn^llsh grammar is dealrable in a public officer, since it BUggeatB that he is "of a truly repreaentatlve character.*1 The people, yea f?ee, are asa nil.? tbua Ignorant, und they want for their nil Ts or m-rvams men like them? selves, and not men wh?. are above them, or wh<> fancy they are, because they know how to spell.

And they send th?*lr children to achool in order that they may barn more. They have respect f??r Intelligence, even for th?- "rules "laid ?'.own in tie- b?...ks on conoc? writing and "speaking," to which Mr. Grady refers s., con? temptuously, To say that education Is un? democratic and that th?' man wh?. usea th.

And besldea though this may l?e <>f leaa Importance to demagogues it is not true. THF COMMERCE OF NEW-70RK. It Is an oft-told tale, of which some may be weary. Hut the Governor does well to repeal ?t in hi? message, directly and emphatically. New-York has ben for a hundred years tbe foremost ?port of lo.- Nation, [ta commerce baa i?eeu ?greater than that of all other porta put to? gether, and th.- profit thereof to tin? city, the State and tbe Nation has been above all rompu tatlon. Now, however. Sew-York is l<."?in?r thai pre-eminence, it? commerce, if not actually de? clining, 1.- nol Increasing as rapidly as ihm of other ports. Some of it is actually being dl verted to the alien porta ? :' ? lanada. To aoma --x tent this may be Inevitable. Bui Mr. Black doea well t.? raise the questions whether Xew-York'a comparative decline is not largely due to "a to.? "narrow policy prevailing with reference to ter "miii'ii facilities," and whether that and other malefic conditions cannot be overcome. Tboae who have studied the BUbjecl on the spot ar.? ready to answer thoae question?*, as the pro? posed Commission will, on Investigation, ae suredly answer them, with an emphatic l'es! The chief evils from which this port i> and for y?-nrs has been Buffering are ihr?*??: Inad?? quat?, and too ?\?i.nsive dock, warehouse and elevator accommodations; ?-low, cumbrous ami costly means of transfer between canal and railroad terminals and steamship lines; and In* sufficient depth of water at the entrance to th?. harbor. The iirst of these la a muter for ih" city and State to deal with. Rome Improvement in respecl to it is ?being made, especially In dock accommodations, bul there is nrgcnl need ..t' much more. The s .-..ml la ?partly fur city mid Situe and partly, under the prcsenl Bystem, f'?r the Nation to attend to. Some progress baa ?been mad" in res?pect to it, bu: with deplorable slowness. The task "f improving th?- Harlem Hirer and Bronx Kills, eapecially, drags wearily as a fat cause In Chancpry. Planned by De Witt Clinton three-quarters of a century ago a- an Integral part of ta.? ?Erie ?anal system, :t threatens to be found still unfinished at the cen? iry'a end. Yet it could, with proper emer priae, i?<- done in a twelvemonth nt a cost, ..f les? than a '?tl ?? of oth? r lesa essential works, and it would probably confer greater benefit a upon thla i"?rt than any other Improvement now under consideration. The third evil la tbe one to which moat atten? tion has i??-, n ? aid. At th?- nr. -? m moment agi latl n la being made through Ihe New-York Boai I of Trade and Transpi nation for a deep? ening of the Sandy Hook i bannet to thirty-five fi?,-:.

That fn??f Is recognize,], and Senators and Representatives from the Western states bare often b?en fore? most in advocating a liberal policy with regard to it. Indeed, they nave shown more lnt?wa*si In this port than has this city Itself; for while inay were spproprlating millions of the nation's money for deepening the channels this city was d.-liii.r.'it.-i\ .nul Industriously engaged in lillln?: them up sgaln by dumping Its street-sweepings Into the Hay between the Narrows und Sandy Hook Buch acandaloua conduct, maintained for many years, gives this city small title to ask f??r Federal aid for the improvement of Its harbor. For the last few years th?- city lias not sinned In that respect, and there is reason to hope its future conduct will be without reproach. Bui it is not to be forgotten that the impairment ?>f this harbor and the consequent checking and dis ?otirai'.-iii. ;it of Its commerce are largclj the f.'inb of the <!iy Itself. The memory of thai fin", should he a potent factor In moving this city to co-operate with the National and State Government! to the fullest possible extent In j undoing the evil It has done. IN8TALM1 \'T ABUSES. Mr. G. C. Bperansa has calted pulule atten? tion to what is undoubtedly a grave misuse of the processes of the law as a weapon for swindling. Nobody who is it all familiar with the life of the East Sid?- ha.? any doubt that In bialment sales as managed there are a means ol victimising and oppressing the poor. The University Settlement workers have long been convinced of this, ami some of the Justices of the minor courts who have '<> try these Inatalmenl . bare declared that the code should lie changed to prevenl persecution and extortion under eovtr of laws Intended to regulate entire ? ly different transactions. it would doubtless be o misfortune for the poor to have the instalment business entirely broken up. a sewing machine may be needed to make possible the earning <>f a living, and It : can la? paid f??r only from these earnings. Bepu table firma bave for years carried on the boa i ? i of supplying auch needs, and while the purchaser often has to pay largely for bla lack of read] money, a reasonable extra charge over the cash prie? is defensible on account ?>f tin trouble and risk Involved. I'.ut the dealers complained ?>f do noi stand ready to supply the legitimate wants of people. Their plan Is to lake advantage of the Ignorance ??f poor for eignera to force upon them s r?teles which of their own motion they never would think <?f get? ting. Canvassers no about in th?- tenement houses palming off pictures, clocks, Jewelry and other cheap goods at pricea far beyond their : valu?? on i?-(H'ie who d-? not know what tha? art Idea aro worth ami that they are being | cheated at the very beginning, if at any time | the purchaser fails to pay his Instalment s charge of conversion Is trumped up agalnsl blm, and the law meant t<> punish real attempts to dispose of another's property is used to wring. more money <?ut <?f him. The last tlilntr the swindler wants is to recover bis geoda and, ac cording to Mr. Speranza, extensive frauds arc ' perpetrated by agents swearing falsely thai tiny bave demanded return <?f the goods. On ? their testimony body executions are secured linder which til,? i.r foreigner is lodged in jail unless he paya all the demands of bla nersecu tor. One man Is now said to be in Jail subject to six months' Imprisonment because he cannol pay $205. In many such cases much mor?' than the true value of the article purchased ha? been paid before default, and probably In al most all of them the article would be returned to the seller willingly, but be, rather than take it back, according t?> agreement, manufactures a charge of conversion under which ha hopes to enforce furtiit-r payment as an alternative to imprisonment There Is certainly need of a reform In a law which oui be made so oppressive The tene ment-house dwellers are in tbo main honest. Whal they buy they scrupulously pay for. The hoiie.-t Instalment merchants to whom they come for things that they n.1 lind llttl?? trouble with them. The sharpers who go among them t<> play upon their Ignorance are certainly not entitled t<> special consideration. If they want to force trad?* they should take their own risks. The proposal to abolish l?<??ly executions for debts ?d lesa than ?29 is worth favorable consideration. We pretend that we have abolished imprlsonmeni for debt, but we really do imprison for the most petty debts under the law ,?f conversion In ?ases where tli.'f.- la no real conversion at all. The honor of Hie bar is Involved In this abuse of legal proc esses. Mr. S|>erauxa charges that many of the nest oppressive cases are carried <>n by one lawyer, working with on.?urt oilier. The Bar Associat.ou should not be blind to any sin ?. doings. The "shyster lawyer" has been to.? long tolerated lu the petty courts, and the bon? ? table members of tie- profession should take measures to extirpate him. THE El \ DI ICO A RTEN MO\ E VENT. Tl.Id question "Quis custodes custodiet?*1 Is of ten asked in some of its protean forms. In few cases is li to be asked with more perl than In regard to the scl.is. The regular col tegs ?ourse prepares for the post graduate uni versltj course. The academy or seminary pre pai? s for th?.liege course. The grammar seh? "I prepares for the seminary.

FOR METHODIST ' S'lON. On ?Friday last the Joint Commlsalon on Fed? eration appointed by the Method!*) Episcopal Churches, North and South, began II ? Beealona in Baltimore, and it is believed by a few Methodlata thai a federation of the two greal branches of Methodism, or perhaps ?ven an or? ganic union, will be brought about by ii. While sii.-h a result Is not likely to follow, the meet ?nc of tbe Commlaalon is Interesting, neverthe las?, becauae it la ibe Ural ..iii'- il atep looking t.. a ctoaer union which ha- been taken sine the division in lsp'?. In th.- General Conference of the Church which was held in tin? city In 1M4 there waa a debat.? ..n slavery which ahowed that the Church North and South took a radically different rlewof tha; question. This antagonism was made still more evUlent in ihe discussion concerning the case '?:' Bishop An drew, whoae wife before her murrtage owned slaves tha!. in accordant? with a Mate law. be cam? th.- ?property of the Bishop When .a roso lutlon Bnspendlng him until he parted with his slavis was finally adopted it was felt hy ??vr,. one that a separation wna Inevitable, and two y..;irs later the Methodist Kpiscopal Church South was formally organized, It is to promote a federation or union of these tun bodies -iill one in polltj an 1 doctrine, In a] . ..f tin. old estrangement ; tal this J?>lni Commlsalon has been uppolnt?*d. Tbe Idea originated with the General Conference of th.? ?Southern Church thai inel in Nashville, Tenu., three .?ears ago, ami tie- suggestion was ?acted upon favorably by the General Conference of the Northern Church, which met In Cleveland a year laier.

J nes, Oxford, .Miss., ?and Colonel Asa Holt, Texas, The division of theae two great branebca of Methodism and their failure tints far to re? unite forcibly illustrate the difficulties that He In the way of an organic union of Churches In general The Methodists North and South have tbe -mu1 creed, the same church government ami the same ideal of religious life. And while they differed radically in regard to slavery flfty iour yean ago, alaverj does not exist now and has not existed for many years. Moreover, the bitterness ami antagonisme of tbe War are gradually disappearing on both sides of the line, and the young people of both Churches have been coming together frequently <?f late in Ep wi.fih league conventions. One would say that under such circumstances a union now would t..- ai Inevitable aa a separation waa In 1844. Yet. In point of fact, the two Churches have fulled t.. ciinie together, and they tire nol likely to come together for many years. When two sister Churches find It s.? hard to heal an old schism, the cause of whlcb bas been wholly re? moved, no one need be surtir sed when Churches differing In creed and polity continue to remain apart. Even if a universal creed, that all Chris? tiana could accept as a auffielen! form of Chris? tian faith, were t.? !>?? found, organic unity would not be assured. M?thodiste in 1MI be lleved the sain" creed, and they continue to d ? I . ?'11. In spite <?f whl<?h they separated. And to-day It Is doubtful If they care for organic union enough to ?rive up for U their denomina? tional pride and the little rea ntmenta that grew out of the division. Speaking generally, h may be Bald that there is no organic unity ?if Chris? tianity, because the majority ?>f Christians do not believe that It la either necessary or pos? sible. it will ti" not the leaat honorable Item In Gov? ernor Black's re. ?rd thai he manfully resisted all pressure brought to bear upon him in behalf ??f McKane, and refused to make a mock of jus. tice and tho suffrage by pardoning that arch?
