The nooesiitv for this taov?tucn( has been for % long titno apparent, .'.nd now ili.it the initiatory step !i;ia he^ri taken we hope it will be followed u,i !>y vigorous action. Mimstki: Moclxy'u star is on t!ie wane. President Grant has become disgusted with the diplomacy of the author of "The Ris? and Fall of the Dutch Republics," and accordingly determined to recall him. Mr. Motley, us u kliplomat, is not a success; lie lacks th? vim and determination of young America, and certainly has not show.i himself equal to the task of dealing with the delicate and complicated ques'iona at. issue between our goveruirient and Knglund. Anotithr Ovkning rot: John Ciiinaman.? Coal miners in Pennsylvania get seven dollar;* a day. This, considering the general rate ol wages in the country, is too much for labor so lit tic skilled ; but there are not many men thai ore willing to lead a miner's life; hence tbf) rate keeps high. But John Chinaman seems not to be nice in (he conditions of his life so flint. lir? fftrnu monor Put him in 1.110 minna therefore, at half the present rate of wages and give t'ae consumers of coal part of the b<iueflt of this cheap labor. Tub Tax.?This odious burden upon the people bas reached at last the end of its tether. The Senate yesterlay by a vote of thirty-four to twenty-three agreed to strike out of the tax tariff bill the sections containing a tax upon incomes. With this action the House will concur. Although the House voted to continue that tax, it lists since been pretty well agreed that it erred in doing so and will not regret the occasion that gives it another vote on this important subject. The people uiay bo satisfied tJut the income tax is 110 more. ' Inkxoi'Oahi.k Bminds king. ?I-Yom the Associated Press Agency we have received the following despatch : ?

Still we hope our exploring ex- ? ftedition will definitely settle the question, yea i or nay, in regard to the Darien Istlnuus, and t will not tfira up the work until a perfect map 1 of all that chain of mountains which constitute I the waap-liko waist of the American '/ontinent < U made. 1 Immigration?Tti? Attr?utft?ra and 0MW t>?la mi On* Hwutlt^r* Hmu?. Fcora fifteen to twenty thonaand European immigrants per week, ohiofiy from Germany and Ireland, oontinne to be landed at Gastlo Garden, the bulk of the German element moving on at oooe to the far We<t, and the Irish element remaining mostly here and in other cltioii of th.? Hatf. Consiihtrable aoeosaions to our population also continue to In m?de from European shipments to Quebec, Button, Philadelphia Baltimore, Charleston and New Orleans. At the name time, from the New Ku^Iutid States and the central Northern Stales, even to IllinolH, and from our seaboard Southern States down to Louisiana, there is a steady stream of emigration to the wostward of young and vigorous native Americana, hopeful of fortune or distinction, or both, in some part of all that vast region of our new States and Territories weat of the Mississippi to the Pacific ooean, from the British Posses sions north down to the plains or Moxlco. Thus, since the suppression of our late Southern rebellion, from immigrants from our older Stales and from Europe, the increase in the population and wealth of Min* aesota, Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri nnd Texas has been really astonishing. Arkansas, with natural advantages of soil, climate and productions, and cheap lands equal to any of these States, remains com* par&lively at a standstill, because she is deicieut in looal railway facilities and railway connections with the great through linns to New York. The great increase of the population of Toxas, with some nocosslons from Germany, is mainly due to immigrants from the older Southern States, drawn to the "Lone Star" by the attractions of her cheap and line jottou and su<ar lands and hor splendid prairie ranges for the cheap raising of thouiauds of Battlo, horse.*, <fco. But, excepting Texan, (he heavy currents of emigration from the States to the eastward and from Europe have set into and are still setting into the new States and Territories of the North west, this side the great plains, and beyond them in the new mining Territories and State3 of Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, Washington, Oregon, Nevada and California. Even Dacotah, on the line of the Upp!?r Missouri, Is thriving, and Arizona, in ipite of the. Apache Indians, is beginning to boast in her Territorial capital of sewing machine?. Sunday schools, boaped skirts, pianos, newspapers, billiard saloons a-jd shorry :obblers. The gold and silver mines of these neyv States and Territories t.?U the story of the ,idal waves of immigrants from the Bast which ire rapidly buiidiug up prosperous communities in deserts heretofore pronounced worthless, if not absolutely uninhabitable. The discovery of these mines made tho building of the Pacific Railroad a work of magic hardly l<'9s wonderful tlm'i the miraculous achievements of the lamp of Aladdin; and the moving masses of men, women and children to tho marvellous regions opened to the world by (hut. road remind us of the migrator/ nations in times past from Asia into Europe. And still these masses of moving nationalities are drifting into those new gold and silver mines and to the lands oi the Upper Mississippi and its tributaries, whose abounding crops of wheat p.nd corn and convenient railroads make these lands more attractive to men with families than the silver mountains of Nevada or the gold gulches of Colorado. But south of Pennsylvania nn.l the Ohio river, from the Atlantic westward beyond the Mississippi, there are the most inviting regions on the Continent or in the world to Europeans and Northern men in search of good and cheap living for themselves and comfortable lioiuos for their children. Delaware and Northern Maryland, the whole of Virginia and W.fst Virginia, the elevated and wholesome western divisions of North and South Carolina, and the mountaiuous divisions of Northern Goorgia and Alabama, and the northern part of Mississippi, and the whole of the fruitful States of Tennessee and Kentucky, offer cheap farms, Bare crops and fair [trices to the European or "Vaukee' settler; and they offer, too, a cliin lie whflrn the front 11 of wintar l.onoli lint lightly, ami where the heats of summer arc never so severe as under the boasted skies of Italy. From North Carolina southward along (he geaooust to Louisiana, and extending back a hundred miles, more or less, we liave a bolt of low lands and sandy pine barrens, a region sultry, swampy and malarious. But this belt embraces the most famous corn, ootton and rice lands of the Atlantic Slates. Its climAte, however, which is really good for the African race, is deadly to the European. \ That which in the air is poison to the blood of the European is nutriment to the Afrioau. Hence in the course of time these seaboard lowlands will undoubtedly be chiefly occupied by the African and Chinaman, while the- more salubrious districts we have described will bs almost exclusively occuped by (ho white races. Hut why is if, with all the attractions we have suggested, that these inviting districts of the South, abounding in the wealth of fertile fields, forests, mines and never-failing streams for water power, and possessing a genial and wholesome climate, and withal a fair supply of railway facilities?why is it that the fair and fertile lauds In these inviting latitudes atill go begging? iiow is it that the gr<-at currents of emigration from Europe . r.,1 fl..? Vni-lli Ht 11... I? ?... 'ar West? The Western gold and silver mines lo not wholly answer these questions. The msettlod and still repelling condition of Southern society, an between whites and blucks, tile masters and lite slaves, ex-rebels and Jniunists, native Southern politicians and "Jorthorn carpet-baggers, is the explanation. I'he life of a man is still subject lo too many shunces or death in tho South, and the chaos I ( sidling from a revolution tearing up the old ; >rder of society by the roots is still too appaent; and hence there is n> general morenent of Europe in-< or Northerners to fill up he Wusle places of the South, lint this state >f things cannot last ranch longer, and, with he full re-establishment of law and order, the iplendid bargain* now ottered in Southern ands, mines, mills, Ac., will be gone. This, hen, is the time for Europeans and Northern rami lo secure possessions in the South for a bagatelle, which will be a forluno to their children. Men of the same tonality, with l'autilie? in the North or lo Europe, br vombitt NKVV YORK HERALD, S. log in a settlement, cms at once In the South make a community of their own and a little bomo market, and Southern land owners should encourage this policy of settlements in communities and Tillages. < ngre?1 'l'h? lucoiutt Tnx Jfe?ea.l?4 by tta? M*nnt??-The (>?oi|l? Bill. The Senate, having full faith in the remark so frequently uttered by Europeans, that Americans think too much of business and loo Utile of pleasure, yesterday passed a bill designating December 2;"., June J, July 4 and Thanksgiving Day as public holidays in the District of Columbia. The House will doubtless acquiesce in this action of the Senate, and the days mentioned will hereafter bo observed as public holidays, not only in the District of Columbia, but generally throughout the country. Mr. Sumner's resolutions on Cuban affairs were taken up and discussed, butaoiiou An Mi a anKia/tt waa ilu('iiri<a(l in nrHik* Ia allrtw Mr. C&aserly an opportunity to make a apecch in opposition. Consideration of the TaxTariff biit was resumed, when the sections to continue the income tux were strickon out. As this action materially afl'eoted the operations of the bill, necessitating the restoration or other taxes, its further consideration was postponed in order to give the Finance Committer time to consult upon the proper course to pursue lo provide for additional revenue equal in amount to that lost by abolition of the iucome tux. The Senate bill authorizing the Secretary of the Treasury to liceuse pleasure yachts was taken up and passed by the House. The bill is very favorable in all its provisions, and permits yachts belonging to foreign yacht clubs to enter or leave American ports without entering: or clearing at the Custom House. Tiie House then resumed consideration of the Georgia bill, which was thoroughly reconstructed and passed. The new bill simply provides that Georgia, having complied with the reconstruction acts of Congress and ratified the fourteenth and fifteenth amendments to the constitution, is declared entitled to representation in Congress; it Is also provided that the people of Georgia have tho right to elect members of the General Assembly as provided for in the Slate constitution. The effect of this bill is most unfavorable to the Bullock interest, and will frustrate all the deep laid schemes to continue liiinsolf and his blackand-tan legislators iu office in dellnnco of the will of the people. Tlii' Ken-hum Monsotion?Damon mnl J*y? thluD. The talk of the hour, and the last exploded Hubble in Wall street, is the failuro of young Ketchuin and the sacrifice of his faithful friend and broker, Mr. James Boyd. On the previous occasion, when Mr. Ketcbum, who it appears is regarded as a kind of financial archangel in Wall street, got into a little difficulty involving a loss of millions to himself a'id tens of thousands to others who were not in bin operations, ho had no Damon to iuterpose between him and the condemnation whioh justice meted out. Ho evidently had no "pal" with pluck and fidelity enough to serve him, "not for dollars and cento, but purely out of affection"?to place bim, in fact, in the high poaitiou to which "his genius entitles bim." In bis late disaster, however, he fonnd this i stanch friend and brother (In Mr. Boyd, between whom and Ketcbum, Boyd says "there existed a tie as necessary to each other as air and water to either of us." Well, Boyd and hi3 fortune are gone down Into the fathomless depths, for a time at least. Ilia hard-earned store has been swept away even ns a burnt offering upon the altar of friendship. It is but a poor cousolation to know that Mr. Kotchum's fortune, so recently and rapidly made "on the street," is diminished also. Damon and Pythias have fluttered in a fraternal uiuuii?v;u upnu tun boiiiii nuaiilMU, Ot*UttUN0 111 this ott.se?unlike the crowning point in the drama?Pythias did not come up to time. No doubt there are plenty of such casos occurlng in Wall street from time to time ; but they do not acquire the proportions of a sensation only because the magnitude of the amounts involved is not so startling, nor are the chief actors so well known in tlnancial operations of this character as Mr. Ketchum. It is not necessary to enter into the met its of this petilous romance. It seems to be a transaction between a principal and his broker, and they must share the misfortune?such as it is?alike. We hope nobody else will be much hurt, in which event there will not be a great deal of public sympathy felt for any evil which may befall the stock aud gold gamblers of Wall street. O.sk Mors Cuor of Bomiis.?The police of Limerick, Ireland, discovered on Thursday a deposit of loaded bombs in an unoccupied bouse. The bomb crops also seem to come as the diseases and revolutions do, under the government of some natural law that gives thorn an epidemic character; just as the cholera breaks out in India and is heard of almost simultaneously from several cities, so the bombs break out in different points in Kurope. The district most afflicted with this occasional disorder is comprised within a line bounding Italy, France aud Ireland?a line, in fact, that gives those three countries a noble unity with regard to bombs. In the production of bombs they are one, and in the fact that the bombs are made and deposited ninety-nine times where they are once effective they are one alao. Are all these people less desperately savage when they coma to discharge their infernal machines than they think they are while making them ? Ai.l thic Facto.?The Tribune want* all the facts embodied iji the testimony given before the Senate Committee on Military Affairs by Colonel Jacpioss, in reference to Buchanan, Seymour, Greeley, Jacob Thompson, C. C. Clay, the Niagara Tails peaco makers, the rebel phosphorus incendiaries and other persons and things. All the facts will be found in the report of the Sonato Committee, as published in the Hkhai.h of Wednesday last. A Good Bai.anok?The gold balance of one hundred and eleven millions in the national Treasury, The government is getting on well enough, indeed, to turn this balance Into tho pockets of the people by a reduction of their taxes (including tho abolition of the income tax) to tho exleul of a hundred millioru. Why &<>( ? MURDAY, JUNK 20, 1870. Nltr*.(<llr(iwloe. The oitro-glycerine which caused the very destructive explosion at Woroeater was ' ' tnug(jlod" Into the car. Rillroad companies naturally refuse to carry this dangerous substance knowingly. Express companies will not rcceive it. All the ordinary meaus of transportation from point to point over great distances ure closed to dealers in this substance. What is the consequence? Does any one suppose that it is not carried because all these people refuse to carry It? It is only necessary to reflect that it is not made at the many and widely separated places at which it is in constant use to seethe answer to thN. It is constantly smuggled into the cars, and, worso still, uuon steamboats, perhaps, worst of all, upon ocean steamers. The first consequence of this is that it is udt handled as such stuff should be, and mere ignoranci of the presence of the article gives it greater danger^ even than it would otherwise have. The people who send this substance abroad in this way feel under th? less restraint for this reason?if it goes safely there is no inquiry into the nature of the package containing it, and if it does not go safely then the whole package and many others are so effectually destroyed that it is impossible to identify any, or trace the offending one to its owner. Thin gives immunity from danger to tliOHO persons, and they evidently have no conscience in the matter. There is uo doubt that this substance, go capable of causing great disasters, is constantly and at all times in transit through this city. It is a smuggled transit, of course, and all the more dangerous on this account. It is known that it is usually sent through this city packed in carpet bags, and the careless handling of one of theso bags on a car might at any moment cost a hundred lives. It ia neoeasary that tlie authorities should investigate this subjcot very closely, and that the law should make the smuggling of nitro-glyoerino into cars or boats used for travel a felony, or" should at least attach to it such a penalty as may afford a salutary example at any timo an offender stall bo caught. Epidemic Disbaskh and Quaka^'iiuk.? Cholera is ragiug at different points In Cubit; smallpox is very severe there, and the y^ljow lever has uiade its customary appearance. This will bo interesting news for persons who contemplate trips that way in filibustering expeditions. But it is not without a vory lively interost also to the people of this city, when we consider that a groat many merchants trading with Cuban ports are just now raising a clamor for the relaxation if not the abolition, of quarantine. These rich merchants, if they make a hundred thousand dollars on sugar, as they often do iu a single operation, or the same on coffee, can stop away nicely to Newport, Saratoga, or even to Switzerland, and what then will they care for the cholera their ships brought, which will rage mostly in Roosevelt street? Not a button will they care, taking their ease at Vevay. It is to be hoped tLat the quarantine authorities will care as little for their noise as they care for the public health. Their clamor is for freedom to import disease; the cry of the people is for vigilance in keeping it out. Womkn'b Rights is Enoi.ano?Lad* Amhkkly's Platform.?Lady Amberly, daughter-in-law of Karl Russell, has come out strongly in behalf of Women's rights, and this is her platform:? 1. Educational equality for women. 2. Tiieir admission to all tiie professions. ". 'Hie same individual rights to hold property as men. J. widows the proper guardians of their children. 5. Woman suffrage and social equality. ?). No legal subordination In marrhige. 1. Kqual wages for equal work. A strong platform, this; and when in Engi > ?< iu,. muu au iiiUMuiKKii muj vi tun ai isiuuittijy takes hold of the movement it moans something. Meantime, in this country the women's rights agitation, under the management of ti lot of old grannies in breeches, seems to be dragging heavily, and the worst of it is the great mass of our wonu-n think the movement a humbug, or they are (oo busy with the latest fashions to care a U5 for woman suffrage. Tmk Pr.aupb of Gkasmjoi'I'ICiw (the regular locust plague) has returned to plague the Mormons. There is danger, too, if some efficient means for tlieir extermination be not adopted, that these grasshoppers or locusts will, before many years are over, abolish Mormon polygamy by starving it out; but, as this will only be one nuisance abating and taking the place of another, we hope that the Mormons will abate the grasshopper nuisance, and that Congress will abate, in some quiet way, the polygamy nuisance of the Mormons. It would be a national disgrace to leave Mormon polygamy to the chances of the grasshoppers, and to prevent a general famine some day in the far West from these swarming millions of grasshoppers the government should offer premiums for their destruction, for we believe that modern science can destroy them. At Last.?The fate of the murderer Real is sealed. His last hope failed him, and he must pay the penalty of his crime. Yesterday the Court of Appeals affirmed the judgment of the lower court, and the Supreme Court is ordered to proceed in its execution. V/ir nenrlv two vcam IiIm frifMliln b:ivn m?nnf?Ail to stave oir the mandates of the law. and no efforts wore left untried to secure for him a new trial; but justice, though alow, la liUa to be administered at laat. Rrooijdkk Uaokktt yesterday dealt out to Michael Varley, brother of the notorious Roddy the Blacksmith the justice tie ao richly deserves for his complicity in th? Burke-llernan shooting case. It is only by severe punishment that the city can be cleaned of such rascals?fellows who prowl the streets at all hours of the day and night, and who are more ready to give a blow than exchange a courtesy. Morals at the Hob.?Now that the experiment of arresting street walkers and potting them .on probation has resulted so successfully in Boston, why don't the authorities there ' try their hand at arresting ?4S?me ot the liber| tines who continually walk the streets and deliberately entice unfortunate girls to their ruin ? Sauce for the goose should be san* [ for the gander. TiiicNicw Dkpaktmknt of JnsriOK.?Attorney General Akerman will initiate the new "Department of Justice," established by Congress, which ootnes Into operation almost spontaneously with his own unanimous confirmation Vf the Svoat.e. Bnmw ? ? Itlfkt Aitli. As, In hla groat speech on the Alabama olainu, Senator Sumner baa bit the nail on the bead In his "resolutions declaring the sentiments of the people of the United States concerning Spain aad her island colonies lying In American waters." The people of this country are not indifferent to the barbarities which mark . the conduct of the war in Cuba, on the part of Spain especially; they are pained to bear that Spain still cli ngs to the institution of African . slavery; they do regret to witness the extraordinary efforts of the Spanish government, by violence and blood, to maintain an unnatural jurisdiction over Cuba, and they do sympathize with the Cubans struggling for their independence, and with the Spanish people, too, la their present efforts for liberal institutions; and it is right that Congress, In the name of the American people, should speak these their sentiments to the existing Spanish government. These strong and emphatic resolutions, if passed by both Houses or Congress, nod sooonded by a polite but , emphatio letter of instructions to General > Sickles from the IVesident, we can liardljr 1 doubt will bring Spain to reason. It is proper, J at all events, that Spain should clearly under- j stand the public opinion of the United Stales on the Cuban question; and these resolutions do not too strongly express It. Tim Nbw Attouhk* Gu^khai. on Heoonbtbootioh.?Coining from a State ho difficult to reconstruct and control as is Goorgia, the views of the new Attorney General upon these matters are naturally looked for with much concern. Mr. Akermart evidently is a believer in tlie "immortality of States;" that "onoe in the Union always in the Union," and consequently the Southern States have never severed their relations wilh the federal government. His theory is, the rebellion broke down the State government of Georgia and terminated its existence, but the existence of the Statu itself was not alfected, and now it only remaius to build up the State government anew. In support of his theory Mr. Akerman shown th ?t the continued existence of the reb.-l States has always been recognized by the general government; that thoy have in no case been alluded to as conqnered or rebel territory, but as States, which indicates either an unpardonable oonfusion of terms or an acknowledgment that Georgia still is and ever has been "in the Union." N Tuk Diii'artmknt of Docks still continues us labors, auu yesterday beard 1,110 suggestions of h number of gentlcineu who came forward with forms, plaus and specifications which they offered with a viow towards the improvement of our river front. Nothing, however, beyond listening to the plans was done, and the Board adjourned to take (ho question tip at a future day.

A meeting of non-yacht owners membera of ta? New York Vac tit Oiun, w as lie Id yesterday at i>e<nomco's, for the purpose of endeavoring to reotlfy jertaln abuses whicii they oonnlder exist under tie present management of the organization. Among toe grievances complained or was that in regard to ho question of voting, ttiey holding (hat although v the non-yacht owners were in the majority and their combined dues far exoeetled thoae of the A raclit owners, they were nevertheless debarred ?/ tlie bylaws from having any voice in t , the general raanagenient of the club, and were rendered powerless to act In reference te lit* arrangement for regattas. Among the causes which teemed to bring about this meeting was the alleged mismanagement at the last regatta. But the aufclolned statement sets forth more particularly tho grounds of complaint. Mr. John Kali ins presided and Mr. Cortlandt M. Taylor acted as secretary. Having called the meeting to order Mr. ilolline read the following:? Wberess the non-yacht owning member* or the New fork yacht Club *rs deprived of all r >lce and rule lu the oounclu of the elub, and whereas they deem themselves by their membership entitle J to equal consideration and equal rights with the yaohtownlng members; thorefore, be it H itivt i, As tbe leoie of tbls meeting. that the followlag ? amendments to the constitution be proposed at the neil^mioral meeting of the club. constitution. Abtici.s 1. Amendment tore.i.i at lotlows:? The officers 01 the club shall consist of a Coium >dore, Tie* Commodore, Uear Commodore, Secretary, Treasurer and Measurer. The Commodore. Vice Commodore and Rear Commodore shall be yaolit owners at the time of their elective, aud during the ooutlnuanee of tbeir term of office. Abt. IX. amended to read as follows:?Every member of the Yacht CIud shall be eutitled to a rote on all matters con necled with the club, eioept such as actually concern tho yachts. In the latter case all voting to be by representatives of yuolits. Kach yaolit to be entitled to one vote only. ART. X. smeuded to road as followsAny person shall be < eligible to be elucted a member. Bach candidate for aumis slou must be proposed and seoonUsd In writing; the name uod address of the candidate, with the names of the mem bers proposing and seconding him, must be seat to the retary, and pouted In a conspicuous place In his office for ai least ten days before he can be balloted for, which balloting ' shall only talte place at one of the Ave general meetings. Members slmll be elucted by ballot only. A iiuorum to con ^ slst of teu members of tne club, and three black balls shall defeat an election. , In the hope that a brier recital of some of the evil effects which the New York Yacht Club Is now experiencing from m lis present syntein of management may result In a removal of tbe cause of all tho trouble by amendments to the constitution, tbe attention of members is respectfully called to tbe following 8tatbmhnt. ' It appears by Ilia Blue Hook ot 1470, published by suihorlty Of the club, that there are ^65 members of the Yaolit Club, without counting those members whose election took place lull lhui la tun IPKHIMI VII aiiun liltiir imuiwi Hf ?ii|j?sr in mi* year's report. Of this immoer only forty-nine are raobt owner*. and one-third of the** latter ure non-reatdonti or i New York, beiui! member* trom Massachusetts, Khoda Island and Connecticut. Article IX. of the constitution provide*:?'"All voting to l.e by rnpt'Oietitatlve* ot yacht*, uactt yacht to be entities to one vote only." Chapter III. of the bylaws provide*:?'"Nolle** ahull be tent 1 to every member of all general meeting* at least ten day* lie fore inch meeting, and of all special meeting* and of the purpoae* for which ther are called at least three day* before auch meeting. The business of any special meeting shall be strictly confined to the purposes for which ft i* called." It la here pertinent to Inquire why the bylaw* make It Imperative that all the member* shall be notified of all general and tpecial meetings of the club, while the constltatloa civet to the yacht owners alone the privilege of casting a vole at sucli meetings. "Why," member* ask, are we all ootitted to attend, when oulv yauut owners oan vote on any measure proposed Y" If this discrepancy between the provisions of the constitution and the bylaws be not stultification is It not, then, pardonable, nay, reasonable, to suppose that It exists solely to delude general members Into the belief that they have some rights In the club in return for their initiation fee* and annual duos ? It it not an attempt to ''keep the word Of promise to the ear and break U to the sense f" ' - 'TV . This is the gr^at grievance of the member*. They thlnll, and certainly with some appearance of justice, that for a minority, a small minority (and it Is well kuown that the at tendance of /<wbt representatives atjglub meetings does uot average loo al each mtailag), to hivelEj sjiie anltatire q>n trol of the club and its affairs, Utterly rei;Vrdlesc Ft may ?e. of the wishes of the non-yacht owning meu.bers, who outnumber the yaobt owners eight to one. Is fatal as well to the ' present iiileresls aa to tho future well-being or the Institution. Article XIII. of the constitution provides, "The general aupervisfon of the club limine and of the property contained therein shall be under the supervision of a bouse eomait- ' tee, to be elected at the first general meeting of eacb year." Rj reference to the Slue Book of 1870 it will be seen that t the "House Committee" is composed of five gentlemen, to whom is added the seoreUry or thfc club ?e Mf-ft. These gentlemen are not regarded as officers, In the rote / giving sense of Ibe word. Ther occupy a most unomalous position. 1 While they are expected to assume a certain responsibility for the proper Internal management of tho club they are not, unless tuey happen to be yacht owners. even accorded a vote on matter* intimately connected with their sphere of duty. On the occasion of the recent regatta much discontent wm created by the want of due preparation on the steamboat, and especially at the Olub House, for the accommodation of members and the ladtee accompanying them. The only member of tbe House Committee who wee present at ibe Club House on that afternoon stated that be bail no power or authority to remedy tho e vlls that were crying for redrew; tlnit tbe oommiuee bad no authority to order-provisions for the accommodation of members, and in point of fact that under existing arrangements everything was left to the rogalta committee ot tue steward of the Club House. Complaints were rife on all aides. Members with ladles could obtain no refreshments, and It was with dlDluuity that a ser- t vant could be secured to give them even that information. To sucb an extent wax tbls want of proper management carried on this day that members left the Ciub House in disgust, at*jui? tun; nuum t hvuui iddi^u ??rii iucu(vo<aui|/ iu*u uv subjected to such treatment In the 1'utnra. On the steamboat matters were, If possible, worse. Members *rc kuovrn to have Teed the servant* oil board to obtain a plate, only to be disappointed In their efforts to seoure something o.lible to phit e upon ti. In other instance* gentlemen ordering wine were told uj tlie servants to "go and ;;ei It" tliomse VPS. At this oundiiot nou-yaelit-ownlug members have le.t aggrieved, and justly, loo. Tliey pay as much yearly dues as the yacht owners; they are, oejiUou, iu a vast majority; yet ibey have not the privilege of n vote on any measure which may be proposed (or the consideration of the club. They pay In support of the club ijii!,'iOuaui>iiu)ly; the yacht owners only pay $1,1125. * Now, when it is considered that the club Is sustained I almost entirnly by the non-yacbt owners, that It almost depends for Its existence upon their subscriptions. It will at onue strike u'l fail miuds ax being contrary to every urlnol- i pie ol eiiuity that they should be deprived of all voice in tbe councils of tbe vlub, and at the same lime be forced to sulVer from inattention or neglect on tlie jiart of the mlaorlty or \ their appointees. In other words. It I* enforcing the principle ot taxation without representation. What the non-yacht owners demand Is an amendment to the constitution giving equal rights to all. They do not desire to Interfere with the yacht owners in any matter appertaining to tbe yachts; they deem it only just that the latter should retain full and entire control of suoh affairs: but in the selection of officers, of a regatta committee, ot a b use committee, and in all other matters connected with the club (outside or tbe yachts themselves) let each member kare a voice, let eaoh member have a vote. The result will be that tbe club will assume a degree of vitality hitherto unknown to the sickly constitution- there will bo no more tiatrm on our gala days?no more dinners for thirty-two where twenty-two pay the reckoning-and In an lucredlbly short space of time the New York Vaoht Olab will become 1 what we all wish It to be) a thorough, self supporting and agreeable institution.
