Done?hut I prole-it ngaitt.-t tbo nt-sertton that they
owo allegiauce lo any party by virtue ol olbce id this
department- The polico have aliuoit absolute coutrol
over the conduct of elections. They are cliurgcd
with the enforcement ol law In a city where many in
lluenual jioliilciaus huvo long boon hibitu.il, llagrnut,
professional violators of the law. This depart nieut
lias in tlio service ol tlio city about twenty-six
hundred muu ut an annual expense o I some
$?1.J0^,4(;0. Those men are constantly looking lor
promotion or prolarsnce m agreeable duty or other
official advantage. To secure these benefits they
must rely uiion lidellty uud moritorious service, or
upon political Inlluence und favor. The efficiency of
the dupartmeiil requires that they should rely upou
the loriner. The present Commissioners, wi.hout
distinction ol party, hive labored to induce them to
ilo so, but we cau do littlo II the powers that make
tnd unmake Commissioners cnooso lo trend ugaiu in
the way from which bus conie so much disgrace, and
nullity our ellorts hy representing to Hie force that par
tisnu allegiance is to be the price ol official preferment.
Tho practice ol requiring these political contributions,

morale und the efficiency of the Police Department.
It our recent history ever repeats Itself, anil kuaves
and scoundrels flnu It easy uguin to overcome the
good votes ol good men by iruud and wrong, it will be
due in uo small measure to the fact that your com
mittee lucked either strength or Inclination to forego a
vicious prjctice, which lor the saito ol pouticul control
corrupts and weakens that branch of public service
that should pret>ervo the puiity of tbo ballot box,

Governor Hartranft and Adjutant General Latta
having rolusod, by direction or tho Attorney General
ol' tho State, to obey tho aubpounas served on them
to appear bolore the <>rand Jury ol Allegheny county
to testify relative to military matters in connection
with the July riots. It was proponed to Issue
attachments compelling tlielr presence. The At
torney General, having been notified that he would be
granted a hearing ou the application to-morrow, left
lor Pittsburg this evening. The State ofllcials havo
not obeyed the sabpueuas served on ihoui. because of
a (oar that if they rovoaled some of tho secret* con
noctcd with the prosecution ol the late campaign
against the rioters the Stute might bo involved in
tl:e payment oi tho damages arising out of tao riots,
amounting to about $3,000,000.
One ol the main objects or the Pittsburg investiga
tion is to uncertain irom tho sworn statements of the
Governor and his Aajutant Generul the genuineness of
the proclamation issued at tho early stages ot tho Al
legheny county riots commanding tlio rioters to dis
perse. The proclamatl n in point had Gov
ernor Hiiriranfi's name attached to It, aU
though ho was In Nebraska at this time.
The Governor and Adjutant General will leavo
!or Pittsburg to-morrow should the Jutlue before
whom the application lor an attachment is lo
be argued docldo they must appear before the Grand
Jury. But tho probability is that they will refuse to
testily as to what the Atioruoy General is pleased to
term "ritate secrets.''

Inquisitively about thorn, smiled at tho simplicity of

philosophical lioadu with no hulr at all. On one siuo

Ho had heard revelations concerning tho character of

Tins statement created quite a sensation among th?
liberals present, who looked nt Mr. McCarthy und then
ut one another, aud suiifed incredulously. The
preacbor next took up u new book Irom his desk,
wlucli he said be hud ueon reading all the night beturo,
culled "Isis Unveiled," tho authoress of which he
compltmonted unstintedly. Kioin this tie proposed
to lortify bis arguments against positivism, which
was the creed ol the so-iermel Church ot Humanity.
One ot the speakers on Friday evening h.id said to
him that Compte's positivism was the Bible ol this
Church. Mr. McCarthy hau reud au enitome of
Compio's work three tunes, and he prayed that God
would (org ive bun for the was to ot time. (Laughter.)
He relerrou to the personalities levelled ut him at the
Liberal Clubhand especially condemned course of
one ni^mbwr, "whose" only answer to Inn argument
against poatuvmu was a sneer at the tall of the scrip
broker tiiIrnitu. And yet, .-aid he, this member w.is
tho brother ol u mail whom positivism put into a
lunatic asylum. Another sponkor nt the club, he said,
had adopted an anonymous leitei us a means ot cou
veyiug sentiments winch the author was ushamcd to
acknowledge in person.
Mr. McCarthy then rtad, in ine lorm of a challenge,
an arraignment ol positivism which he would under
take to substantiate only before an audience ol miilo
adults The pollution ot positivism had been Its best
defence. In this arraignment he naid the leading mem
bers ol tho Church ot Humanity bold views as degrad

Abetr tenets were practised neither motnorliood nor
wtlehood could be respected, l'osltivtsni, be delarod,

ut certain points ol ins discourse lie lomented with

he begun a sentence, "You wen here wno are lathers

claimed; "I'm galling used to being turned out. They

[From the Cblc&go Tribune, Oct. 12.]
An amusing ca.se was on trial ye?terday afternoon,
before Judge Moore, though the detail! will not bear
publication. The eomplaiuant waa Augustus G. Bart
lett, who brought suit to ileclare voiu his marriage
villi HkUio Kemp, alias Martha Uartlett. Ho la an In
telligent looking man. between thirty and thlrty-Qve
years of age, while flame is an black as the aco of
gpados. It seems that she atieuded him when he waa
sick, some three or lour years ago, and he married her
In Marcb, 187a. out ol compassion, or as a very poor
return lor nor kindnota. l'hoy lived together lor i>ome
lime, but, acoording to his story, ho leit her in May,
1874, and has not since lived with her. ho now charges
bor with grots Infidelity to her marriage vows, and
she retorts with a similar accusation.
Judge Moore, however, without deciding who bad
borne the loose reputation, dismissed tbe bill on the
ground that be bad never been married. Prior to July,
1S74, tbe law wna tbat all :n irriAges between a white
person ana a negro or mulatto were absolutely void,
and heavy peualtiea wero pronounced against such
percons marrying and against the person colcmniziug
any such murriaze. This marriage having been con
summated in 1873 aud the parties having, according to
Itnrtletl's staioment, ceiled to live togetber before
July 1, 1874, they are uot married at all, uud never bad
boeu. Mrs. liartiett or Battle Kemp, however, damps
lu r.voi Uiiant husband's happiness ny swearing that be
lived with her subsequent to July. 1874. This raised the
question whether he by acknowledging her a* his
wife has enabled her to claim relationship under tbe
rules ol the common law. Tbe poor man, therefore.
Is left with n ni3M threatening aud portentous cloud
on Ills title to himself, and anxiously wams'to Know
whether he li a married niau or not. 'if be marries
again ho may (lud wife No. 1 on his track, aud no
action he cau bring can settlo the perplexity. Ills
wile, by bringing suit lor separate maintenance or
divorce om ruiso the question, but perhaps sbe may
not choo.io lo do so. She shows no symptoms ol im
mediate declino or dissolution, and he having married
In basto Is likely to have abundant leisure lor repent
anco. In bis dilemma lie has takon an appeal to tho
Supremo Court, in the lorlorn hope that they will
declare him a married man, and thon give blm a
chalice to gel unmarried.

A letter from SU Petersburg nays that the Nihilist*,
who are anxious to luku advantage of the critical posi
tion ol tiio Kmpire and the nbseuco ol ibe army, uro
giving the police a good deal ol trouble. A domicil
iary visit tnudo at St. Petersburg led to tbe discovery
of a packet of letter?, which uidncrd ibo police to
elleot several urroala at Moscow and KiefT; and the ro
port is that a certain number of ofllcers now ui
the theatre ol war aro &or!ously com
promised. In a report upon this subject
the Minister of Justice says that "tun
government is powerless to stay tbe curreut of these
subversive doctrines; for they have deep roots, being
'the result of dissolute manners and au antagonism
always on tho lgcreu->e between thu paternal author
ity ami the children who will not submit, nnd ulso of
the compieto absenou ol religious principles not only
in tho families, but in the Stale schools, whore ro
ligious euucatlon is much neglected.'' The Minister
proposes as a remedy that tbe condition of tlio clergy
?bMla be Improved, and ho calls ou tho pubilo to de
nounce guilty parlies.
