The unrest and difCintent which
the colored people of the Sauth pe
riodically display is a great uiiafoituue
to the race. Thsy are continually
longing for impossibilities building
esailes in the air and suffering dii ap
pointments on account of the ir hallu
c'.nations and self-delusions. As soon
at one bubble explodes tbey com
mence blowing up another. Credu
lous, ignorant and naturally supers'i
tious they embrace and entbnsiatticall y
support the most absurd vagaries, and
they seem to learn nothing by failure
and experience. When It was an
nounced. ten yean ago, that a ship
would leave Charleston, 8. C, for Li
Viarli. the nan roes seemed to
think that one vowel could car
ry the entire colored population
of the Sjuth and thoutands
ruthed to Charleston, and it icq aired
the police to kef p them from taking
fjrclble possession of the ship, iney
had ceither clothes nor money, but
they weio determined to go to Lileria,
without sny purpose or object in view.
The ship made the voyage to Liboiu;
too nsgro passengers were huddU d to

posed to the sun, rain and the chilling
night winds, and, without food or

Lulled States.
Judge Barrett, of the Court of Oyer
and Terminer of New York city, yes
terday sentenced Alderman Jaebne to
nine years and Urn months' imprison
ment at hard labor In the Ping King
Penitentiary, ho having been found
guilty of bribery and corruption in
connection with the granting of tha
right of way, by tbo Board of Alder
men, to the Broadway surface rail
road. No more r'ghteous and just
sentence has ever been passed upon a
prisoner, nor was then- ever as much
necessity for making an example of a
culprit as in this ase. The munici
pal history of New York is black with
crime, almost every administration
having its special case, some more
hideous thnn others. The city, largely
controlled by corrupt men, it has hith
erto been found impossible to mnk e
the law felt as a f rce adequtto
to the punishment of the most
unblushing robliey. Tweed's caso
was an exceptional ono, but
except his incarcetutiou there was lit
tle accomplished by it toward the
suppression of bribery and cor
ruption snd actual robliery of the
city treasury. The reason for this fs
not far to seek. The robbers be'ong
to boh political partus and tbey
make common cause in their aggres
aions upon the public funds and in
their defense of their crimes and the.
too's they employ. Besides, the elec
tions are largely controlled by saloon
keepers who either select candidates
from anions their own numher or
dictate who shall bo il'io candidates of
. either party. Utterly conscienceless,
these men have but one idea in re
gard to the municipal government of
the commercial metropolis of the
country, snd that Is that it exists as a
means of living (or their supporters
and to enable tbem to make fortunes
by bribery and corruption. Meanwhile,
the press exposes them and calls pub
lic attenfon to their rascalities al
most in vain. Occasionally there bus
been a spasm of righteous indignation,
as during the Tweed exposure, when
a committee of cidens secured the
appointment of Mr. Green to manage
the city's financial alluirs, but as
that ended in a heavier
expenditure1 of the people's money for
1ho support of the government thau
during the Tweed regime, the un
fortunate taxpayers h sve been deterred
from any further steps in that ilirec
tion, and they are sleeping ou their
rights, slumbering peacefully while
tbo Jaehnes are selling great franchises
for a Bone. Out of this condition of
things there is no chance for New-
York short of a complete ami radicnl
change of government like that
we accomplished in Memphis
a chanire that will utterly abolish
tho wards and secure the elec
turn of a dozen commissioners,

In the city. In this way the industry,

might hope to triumph over the
illiteraev, ignorance and criminality
that has ruled to the shame and dis-
ernce of the greatest city of the lie
public. But before that reform
