Half the outcasts, bedizzened with glittering gewgaws and laces, that flaunt finery in our faces on the streets, are enemies of all law, of all nociety,"and of all people. It might be well to inquire whether society cannot so govern it'elf as to incur no such en ruities, and then the reformation of such outcasts would be possible. It is, per haps, unfortunate that in discussing this (juestion the disputants are malnly those who have felt the " halter tch-ayf." On the one hand -4we have the relentless blue-light moralist;--who would never The cheapness of labor and the com paratively lighter cost of material in England than in this country la apparent a statement prepared for thVKty authorities of Boston by Hon. fSTaii 'Quiucy for the year 16GS.

These would dissolve marital relations as esaily and cheaply as they are oidalned. So ciety would be thus dtesolved, or trans formed into worse than barbarism. In this, as in most questions of statesman ehip and this surely lies at the founda tion of the State the truest wisdom is in the truest moderation.

B One might suppose from this tha the English railroads are common aflairs, having plain carriages, loc motives, and other rolling-stock requiring and receiv ing littte attention; but the reverse of xhis is true. The English railroads are built , with more caie, solidity and finish thanWe the American, excepting per haps 8)mc short-lines connecting the UoHim- nitwwnf tlip New En ir I and States wftta. Jfew York. The architectural Maw to tyrannize over the.other. iriad of our English cousins leans to the Itj statement of these proposi- kwi Mrmn,nt in all iu construct- "ona shows how diflicult is the problem ive aoBcaption?. Unlike the average f legis ation. Everything is not right American, who is more or less tinctured that is old. The oldest codes are most witti a nomadic tendency, and who absurd in our eyes, and there is none of lives for and in the present, that sanctity in civil laws on this sub Iwildlng his transient house to suit ject commonly ascribed to them. The himself, and ready at any moment to church judges of these matters from one cn nnt t nsvinrnnrnhaspr. nd move I standpoint: the law from another. If himself elsewhere; the Englishman people choose to obey the church it is builds, not only for himself and chil- very well, but the church cannot dictate !ren, but for those comprised in that theState's policy, and the bible furnishes beloved word of his vernacular, "his nociviltcode defining theproperty or beirs." Hence the walls of his houses personal rights or relations of wedded are nearly three times as thick as are people which the State is ..bound to re the walls of the Yankee architect; he cognize. Keliglon in this, as in every glories in piles of brick and mortar, of other behalf, is one thing, the State a rat-stone and cement, and the bigger very different thing; .and the State does tuelhouseAnd the more xapableito walls not, as many corious.-peoplewould have HiriaughinRasieseioscorn," ltt undertake to execute1 the ideas of fhl,r.rifUtnhi,RHtiRhhPt. n, church-people. In fact, if the church English railroad-builder respects and pustatnt this national trait in the con (truc iou of bis bighways, and while the cost of American railroads do not average more than twenty thousand dol lars per mile, the English roads cost on sn average two hundred thousand dol lars per mile, or ten times as much as ours, and this, it should not be forgotten, in a country where labor and material are almost ten times as cheap as they are here. The carriages and rolling block of an English railway while not to our ta." te, are in keeping with the sol id respectability of the national taste,and the 'firt-clas carriages, though to our mind too tumll aud exclusive, are as el- eantly upholstered and furnished as any of our most costly private carriages. The locomotives 8eak for themselves, in the speed attained on English rail ways, v,hc is faster than the average speed of American railroad trains. The officials in their English way, are " generally models of courtesy, and the schedule time, generally punc tual to a dot. It is over such a road that trains eon be run in E 'gland for sixty t wo cents a mile. The attempt recently made to control freight-charges by statutes of the State in Illinois, and vliicb, it is said, does not work well there, finds some precedent in the Eng 'Mt law compelling railroad companies to carry pasfaengers for one penny, or two c.nts, of gold standard, per mile. Ot course, if a man takes a first-class arringe he must pay for his soft cushions and exlusiveness, just as he would by hiring the best room at a hotel, but he' ai trnvel for two cents a mile if he wants o. Now, admitting the higher price of ator and material in this country, iud ailewiBg a larger margin for profile, as something to be conceded to ibe genius of American institutions, do not our railroad companies in their iaseoger -rates and freight-charges, cut it rather fat witlP the good natured public? An inquiring and ingenious gentleman of Troy, 2Tew York, Mr. Ferguson, after allowing the railroads cannot enforce its exactions'of duty im posed by it upon,man and wife, it is no fault of the State, and it should not call upon the State to adopt its notions. The State might go too far in this direction, and, as was proposed by.some idle .peo ple when Iticbmond was the scat of em pire, set up an established church. Let us divcrce church and State in this be half and forget the question of privat morals, and to the extent they are sepa rable only discuss that of public policy Fesiina lente. States are constantly changing laws relating to this subject. and as constantly are they liberalized, This may he unwise. Wo Bhallsee. Meanwhile do not despair of the repub lic based upon the indestructibility of the marriage relation. Faithless as may he many, and corrupt as society may be, as seen through tho corrupt press of cities, do not forget that there arc a million homes in all this broad land into which no demoniac thought or hell-born aspiration of the de praved ever entered. Woodbull & Claflin'a publication never crossed the threshold of one in each ten thousand of the homes of the people.

The Tribune of that city comes to us with encouraging assurances of easier and.tetter times In the money market. As is the center, soon will be the circumference, and the confidence now restored to the great money center of the country will soon communicate itself to all of the States.

How Mr. Ferguson got at the data on which to base this state- ifying. They clearly show that elastici ty of our commercial existence which has saved us from the ratal conse quences of more than one monetary panic. "With New York all right, money matters will soon become easier in every ctty throughout the Union, and the wheels of. businesswhich were tem raent, we are not clearly advised, porarily stopped, will soon spin round and we are inclined to deem it a trifle again as merrily asr ever. Money is be- sengational. Still, tbeie are sufficient ginning to flow back Into "Wall street, f.cts in bight to warrant the conclusions we are informed, and the premium for that our railroads overcharge for both legal-tenders is declining. Ixans are freight and passage in a manner calling negotiated at an average of one-quarter for reformation. We trust, however, per cent, per day, at which figures they that a rational degree of common-sense will characterize the granges in their war against therailroads, and that while they insist upon cheap transportation, both for freight and passengers, they will remember that the railroad com mnies have rights as well as the public, and that bytrebpassing upon those rights they will defeat the very object aimed at, and seriously cripple one of the-greatest sources of prosperity of the whole country the railroads.

The corruption of government originates at Washington, and surely the next presidential election will inaugurate a thorough revolution at the federal capi tal. Then we hear people weeping over the depravity of social life. There is only one wooanuii ana damn news- are easily made where the securities are good. Facts like these must tell upon business everywhere with.a good effect, and we have every reason to expect good rail traue. in a lew aays more at most, our unwelcome guest, yellow' jack, will leave per force. There were, last night, excellent signs of frost, and ourreaders may perhaps be greeted this morning with the welcome presence Lof our wished-for hyperborean du- rifyer.

With "the question of the doubt ful constitutionality of the election be fore their eyes, the gentlemen ambitious oi miing me cnair woerem iuumau eat with so much honor to himself and credit to the State, must, ex necessitate rci, look somowhat askance at the fine frenzy which demands, among other things, the -unloosening of the purse strings for campaign purposes, asa fine element of qualification in a candidate. And as " money makes the mare go," there are indications that the campaign ing nag of our gubernatorial aspirants over the border, will amble along with more comfort to herself than is in keep ing with the fast anticipations of seve ral of her drivers. The JacSson Pilot, for reasons best known to itself, stigma tises the proclamation of Governor Pow ers as lncendiaiy and revolutionary; but how so peaceful and calmly-conceived a document shoald burn up or ronse up anybody, but the gentlemen who desire that the scepter of Mississippi should depart from Powers who very wisely .iroclaims that it shall not wo are at a loss to understand. " The chief execu tive," says Governor Powers, "is firmly convinced, after the most full consul ta tlon with the attorney-general, " and after the most anxious reflection, 9 that" what? Why, that Governor Powers should hold over until November. 1874! The thing is as plain as the nose .on a man's face, and no man, or set of men, save Vie candidates, and the people of the State, has a right to object: Was not the very same thing done in Ar kansas when it was deemed expedi ent, and was not the executive of that State sustained by our amiable, good and learned. President, Geueral Grant, who presented the shrewd manlpu lator of ballot-boxes with a box of his best cigars, when be greet ed the wily Pennsylvanlan in Wash ington an United States senator from our trans-Missli8ippi sister? Why, the Pilot must Eurely be departing from the true faith of the Itepublican party, which has over adopted the good old rule that "Tnose should set who have the power, And those should keep who can.' Governor Powera knows on which side his bread is buttered, and our friend of the Pilot has no excuse for not knowing the same thing. In tho meantime the canvass proceeds faintly enough, and the gentleman son-in-law of the hero of "incendiary aud revolutionary" spoons, is stumping it very mildly indeed, with his black-and-tan satellites, frighten ing the pale-faced villagers with doleful accounts of the impending Alcorn inva sion, but cheering them wit& glimpses of his own bright Ames. -se COMMISSION. -J.

The gratitude whieh follows a noble act to the grave, and blooms in beauty above the ashes of those whose deeds in spired it, is one of the noblest attributes of man. This trait, though polished strengthened and intensified by civil! zation and Christianity, is not exclusive ly the property of the cultivated chris tian man. The savage bears in sacred remembrance the name of him who in life was famed for the possession of what were esteemed great virtues by hi3 peo ple, and holds In the highest esteem the graves of his great and noble dead. To tho memory of the soldier who fell in battle his country lias ever been kind and tender. The proudest mausoleums of antiquity were raised over the graves of warrior heroes, and the sweetest in spirations of the muse of poetry and song "were elicited in praise of those who fell fighting for their country. With the kindly influences of time, which soft en prejudices anu aiiay passions, our own people, north .and south, will learn tD look upon the graves of the brave men who fell during the war from standpoint which knows little else save admiration for their bravery and regret for their untimely loss. Already the clarion call of crrAitrrv is marshal ing the nations to that brotherhood which has been prophesied of old of the children of men, and the time is not distant when, within Our own bright 'and, there will be no isothermal line of distinction, making foreigners of citi zens of a common republic. In the light of this conviction, and in the closer one of sympathy, of which it is of kin, we read of the recent erection of a monu mentm iauquier county, Virginia, t " six hundred Confederate dead," who sluep their last sleep beneath the hon ored soil of old Virginia. It is the gift of "Virginia's daughters to Virginia's defenders," and consists of a beautiful shaft of Italian marble, and a figure of "Bemembrance," cut from the same material, supported by a base which comes from a Virginia quarry. The le gend cut into the marble on the west panel of this enduring memorial, wilt yet oe quotea by popular ora tors and applauded to the echo by the people, when the inevitable strugglo comes, as come it will, between central ization on the one hand and the rights of the States on the other. It is: "Go tell the southrons that we lie here for the rights of their States. They never fall who die ln a good cause." We only regret that the motto did not say: "Go tell the people that we lie here for the rights of Ihe States," for after all, the pith of the cause which pre- Ipitated thejseetional war between the States lay in a violation, real or im agined, of the rights of the States. But leayiugxlitics,out of the question, we hail with pleasure this noble act of the noble women of Virginia. The State that gave, not only to the country but to mankind, a Washington, a Madison, a -Jefferson, a Henry, a Randolph, and a Lee, is 6till.truo to the heroic principles of which these Illustrious men were the outgrowth.
