The claque of investigating committees,
in hot cry, but bootless chase of the re
porter, who obtained an advance cory of
tbo treaty, negotiated by the joint high
commission, between the United States and
Great Britain, has diverted public atten
tion from the merits of this most import
ant document, and it has not generally re
ceived that calm review whicb it demands.
It is really a new departure in diplomacy
and the United States takes front rank, as
one of tho great treaty-making powers of
the world, to lay down principles of inter
national law, and codify them into the
The subjects discussed, and (having met
j the assent of the Senate,) the conclusions
finally arrived at thereupon, have a wide
i range and important bearing, affecting our
national as well as our commercial rela.
tions with other countries. To review
tbem at length is impossible, within the
narrow limits of a newspaper article, and
we shall, therefore, (from time to time,)
but touch upon what appear» to us the
most salient points; but before doing this,
we would state that to President Grant is
due a greater meed of praise, thau is ac
corded to him, for his able diplomacy in
this matter—another fulfilment of his
famous invocation, "Let us have peace"—
to secure which at bonis and abroad, he j
pledged himself to devote his official life, j
By his dignified approaches and attitude,
bo first secured Washington, the capital of
our country, to be df signated as the place j
of meeting of tho Commission—for the
preparation of the treaty—a concession in
I If of great importance, as it enabled
President to watch tho proceedings,
constantly to advise with our represen
ye members,
'o the concrete form of the treaty, thos
ired by careful construction of article
r article, is due tbe all but unanimous
fication by the Senate of the corn
ed treaty, while the high political
tion of the leading member repre
senting Great Britain, gives assurance
that the Queen, by advice of her Cabinet.
will promptly give tho royal assent, and
Kend a controversy which some fondly
i -light lead to a foreign war, aod
afford au opportunity for renewal of
home difficulties. Some of these j
lots still count upon the rejection of j
Jhe treaty by th'i House of Commons,
t-e popular branch of legislation in
Great Britain, where, like our own popu- j
lar branch, the House of Representatives,
questions aro frequently discussed, not on
their essential merits, but as may b\st
subserve personal political ends.
But this is not the case:—The Crown,
that is the Queen and Cabinet, is the
treaty-making power, and the only func
tion in the matter pertaining to the Com
mons, is to grant or withhold supplies to
carry on a treaty wilh effect in case its
terms involve au expenditure of money,
and even had the House of Commons to
pass upon the treaty, the following, under
date 14th iusl., from a thoroughly well in
formed correspondent in England, shows
that although English fault-finders cavil
at what they term a surrender of national
prestige, the people aro not disposed to pro
long or press the questions at issue to ex
tremes. He writes:
"It is satisfactory that a way has been found,
by mutual concession, for arranging some of
tbo disturbing questions between England and
the United Statea. The war on the continent
hu made men here, more averso. to pushing
disputes to violent extremes."
This is the tono of the leading newspa
pers in England, and shows that although,
in the opinion of many Englishmen, con
cessions have been made which hid been
refused when the treaty-makers met at
London, the surrender, as some of the
eitreme writers term it, is considered as
no more than an equivalent for removal
of cause for hostile collision between the
two nations.

Some years ago, the parlors of a fashionable

In tho brilliant light, and all was as happy as
"marriage bells"—because, thero was lo be
united two hearts as one, which had plighted
their troth oach to the other.
The happy pair became as one bird, whose
aweet songs of spring gave happiness to all
wbo beard their joyous note?. Yeara rolled

to mar its pleasures. The confiding wife

Here was the rock on which her hopes were'

plumage and proud bearing of this noble bird

Without a bridal tonr, marriage would be a
liumbng: so the happy couple determined to
visit the capital of tho Old Dominion, and day
before yesterday reached our city, takine ele
gant apartments at the Ballard House.
1 his morning, their happiness suddenly ter
minated, and turned to ashes upon their lips
by the sudden and unexpected appearance of
Detective John Wren and officer Burnett, of
Alexandria, who complained that Mr. Bird
was the lawful husband of another lady wbo
resided in Washington ; consequently he had
violated the law, as he had no right to mate
with two doves at the same time.
The wron is said to be one of the smallest
and most timid birds known to history, but Mr.
John Wren proved, by his management of the
allair, that ho was ready to capture a bird
even of thesizn of the one of beautiful nlumao-e
and song. v *
The parties in this affair aro Thomas R
Bird, of Washington, and a Miss Godwin, who
is respectably connected in this city, with one
of our leading Democratic politicians.
Mr. Bird is now under arrest, and will be
taken to Alexandria to-morrow by Mr. Bur

coolness, and convinced all by his bearing that

shops for the purpose or improving his appear
ance by a clean shave and hair cut. The
Knight or the Scissors and Strop, in his
anxiety to exhibit the grand flourishes, which
he was able to make with his keen whitted
clippers, by mistake cut from our policeman a
part or bis oar instead ot his hair, "ir" said
he, "you call this job 'hair cutting' it isa very
bad one, but ir you call it 'croppine' you have
equalled the best expert I know of" The
apology of scissors sufficed, and our public
guardian left undetermined what action he
would take ; but we learn this morning after
consultation with one or our detectives ' it ia
bis intention to have the professor or ear-cat
ting arrested and tried for defacing some of
our most beautiful city property. Without at>
tempting to speculate and not desiring to nre

Republican who has not yet forgotten our in

A ,_ ird ' * bird—a beautiful bird I
Spread hia strong wings and soared away
I o sunny ohmeg, where oft he heard
More beautiful songs by night and day.
Wearied with flight, he stopped to real
At Alexandria, where he spied
a* Z b "e? b * fo,ded t0 h i» breast,
And off to Richmond, hence he hied.
Wi 'b a new-found mate of sweeter aong
Old love was forgotten, and as dreams of bliss i
lame ocr him, his heart beat loud and strong
As be snatched Irom his bride a wedding kits, j
Mis first love mourns his sudden flight,
His plumage gay, his sweetest song ■
!»be carols for his return at night,
And wonders, why he stays so long 1
His stricken dove coos for her mate
°, r ? am { n ls not ,hat he bas flown,
And left her to such cruel fate ; '
And with another, forever gone.
The flown one happy, the deserted sad, |
The avenger quickly followa on :
~„r m' crles stop ' y° a naughty lad,
Ml take you back to Washington. j
The conduct of the Wren partakea more of
the spirit of the hawk, in tbia matter, when
loiding bis wings he swooped down npon tbe
naughty bird, who impressed with the suddens
I less and boldness of the attack, surrendered:
will be taken back to meet the tears and j
uish of a deserted woman.

Powers cf a Justice of the
—We have received several communi
cations from parties denying tbe right of a jus
tice to impose fines upon certain offenders
especially in cases when parties are brought
before them for violation of law as sample mar
chants. Our information upon the subject is
not sufficient to justify us in giving an opinion,
but if they exercise powers nofcgiven them by
law in imposmg floes, the sufferers have only
to reruse payment of the execution, and take
tho matter to a higher power. We advise this
course, which wilt save any lengthy discussion
of the question. '
