Editor;—! had the pleasure of addressing a communication to the Dela ware liepnMicnn, on the subject of a 1 I'ntwty Wwk House, wbiab appeared ia thsir isauu uf Nov. 20, 1873 ; and in a toot upte, I stated that other paper* wtra at Nfiattÿ to dopy ; but this foot not* not kafft% b*en printed with lha conMBimca lion,' band but tbe readari of tba Republi can had. the benefit of tba eoiuinunication. As the subject is one of importance, g of interest to the public generally, I desire space in your ccltinint tc repeat, in part, what I have before said, and to add something morn, which I think will meet with a hearty retep-ian ram your readers, aapaaMJyt lb« tsx-payers. During the p ist winter I wat connected whh th* Allegheny County Work House, situated in ÀlTugbony county, iu the State of Pennsylvania, contiguous lo the city of Pittsburg, where I was engaged to assist th* superintendent iu conducting th* bus iness operations of thd Institution. The object, ip lbs establishment of this initititlioii, was Ut rid the County J.ail of g elaSs of person» confined therein, for petty offunecs, where they would 'remain Tor §0, SO, 150 and 90 day* in idleness, at the expanse of the county. At' thi* institution the inmates are re quired-to work, to maintain themselves, and thereby relieve tbe aaunty of that burd** ; a* well a9 relieve aooiely of their obnoxious presence The work performed at this plaça, is principally the manufac tura of edtrt oil barrels, of which they turn out, daily, about 600 barrels, and in tbe market, these barrels command a higher jmrics than those made outside. During Sjb mouth of October, 1873, the price ob talneil was 02 35 per barrel. 1 The institution owns alarm of 50 acres, upon a.portion of which the buildings are erected. Tha greater part of the remain der is filled far the use of ths institution, raised thereon a large portion of the pota Soeo, and other vegetables consumed by thrinTnates. Owing the mild month* of tbs year, t>riek* era manufactured, largely, from «lay found suitable for ths purpose, on the premises. These, also command tha bigheit market priese, and are equal to any made in tha vicinity. Another branch of business, is the Steam Laundry, in' which washing is not only dons for the prisoners, but they do tbe work for tilg Pullman Car Company, which in the coarse of ths year, amounts to no inconsiderable sum ol money. The average number of inmates for the year 1872 was 305, of which 250 were Wr guiles, and 55 females. During the months an., Feb. and March, 1873, (the time! wwfcapnnected with the institution,) there wesMkffiÉtalL 491 inmates, of which 429 2 f»|Uales ; but the av bm was 350, of SUpfrid 58 females. an were mi ft; m which 29!i were Th* institution for 1872 was* nearly *elf-*u*tiioing, and would bave beeu en tirely to, had the barrel factory commenc ed operations at tbe beginning of th* year. Th* yuar 1878, from tbe annual report just,received, I learn, show* a handsome profit to the county, of upwards of $14, 000 , a result which baa not its parallel prison in th* world ; ines, Secretary of tbe Frison Reform Association of the U. S. The Superintendent ia a German by birth, man ef high culture, possessed of rare qualities of mind and heart. By profes * on be is, or was, a lawyer, and before he entered open the work of prison man agement, was engaged in tbe practice of law; io th* State of Wisconsin. He cer tiioly ha* not his superior, if he has his equal, in the mauagemant of Prisons, and the utilization ef prison labor. His treat ment of prisoners is mild and kind, yat firm ; requiring strict adherence to prisen rules, tha least infringement of which is not suffered to pass unnoticed. The institntien has a Board of Man ager« eeusietiag of five persans, who givg thtir time and attention to thoir duties, without fee or reward. They are, for tlo moat part, gentlemen of means, retired from active business, and devote much o( their time and means for tbe welfare of fallen, depraved humanity—seeking to rniaa up the fallen, support the wtak, and te infuse courage and hope in all eagaged in the battle* of life. But for the fast that the world ia bleis ed, with net a few, ef like noble spirits, our siu-cursed world would become a per fect Sodom. In view of thç burdensome taxes im posed upon th* citizens of our county, for t ho support ef the inmates of our Poor House (mostly filled with vagrants) and our County Jail, I ask would it not be a wise and economical measure te establish a Work House in our county, within easy reach of ths city of Wilmington, where vagrants, tbs disorderly, and all committed . for petty offences to our county jail, could be'confined and required to work for their miiotcoancc ? ( would give tho Mayor of the city of Wilmington, and the Justices of tbe Peacs throughout the county, power to commit persons to the work-house, for petty of fence* (in default of paying the fine poied) for SO, 60 or 90 days, according to th* aggravation of the offence. It i* always wise and proper to confine, and exclude criminals from society, but to' mflatain them in idlenoss, every one will be. prepared to admit, is very unwise. It i* very expensive to the tax-payer, and an. injustice and wrong to the criuiieal. There never een bo auy hop* of the re/brmetiou of the offender, if you confioe him to a narrow spate and give him noth ing to do. When hie term of imprisonment ex pire«. ha will g* out iato society again, a worse man than when be eutered the pris on door«, aud. will be prepared for tbe ooinuÜMton of crimes of increased niagni in tho history of any oo sa/s Rev. Dr. Wi of thta institution , and education ; a im lade. Cannot the Levy Çaurt of oor county, bo roned to do soturthing tbit will result in making our criminal population eelf anttamiug. and thereby relieve the people of tbe burden of tb.ir .apport? I bave given an example, where tbia result is ac complished, and I think the Levy Q ODuld do nathing better, than to apjtoin eommittee to visit tbe institution I have named, where they' would witness much to interest them, and could collect infor mation that would, if put to practical use, be of immense profit to the cuisent of our county. 1 feel deeply interested in this matter, or 1 would not, or could pet he induced to write a communication to the newspapers on the subject, for,- as you see,' I aw a novice in newspaper eorree pendence ; but when I am in earnest about anything, t cannot aland upon form, but seek to make impressions upon those I wonld influence, by whatever means I am psssessed of, aad according to the beet of my ability. In what I have written, I hare hinted at one of the beet mean* of reforming criminal», now, I woald desire to bint at another thing ; namely, the cause of crime, and one r<ry geod means to prevent it. My position in tbe institution named, afforded me an opportunity to leartt much of the lives and antecedents of theta re ceived into »aid institution. ■ Of the 491 persona received during the three month* I was. there, 447 of them ad mitted thaMbey were addicted to Jhe use of intoxicating t^rink, and this, in most | cases, was the primal cause of their find ing their way into the werk-houae. Only about 10 per cent, of the whelo number alleged tbit they abstained from the use, entirely, of tbe intozioiting cup. That of even this srfiall number, all, told the truth, it is not knaicn. Could the oriminal statistics of the coun ty be collected together, would it not be found that about the sqmo proportion, as here shown, bad thtir start in (he down kill of crime, through strong <J this be s o.that nine tenths of all of the land are traceable to. rum, is it wise, is it safe, and ia it humane, in the State, to tolerate the sale of rum? Is not the State the Parent of Society, and is she not bound through her laws, to guarantee, so far-as possible, tbe safety, prosperity and happiness of her people ? Ought not every good citizen, who has tbe welfare of his race at heart, to form open, and discourage the sale and use of intoxicating drink, and exert himself, to the utmost of bis ability, to create a Pub lic Sentiment against it? This affected, it would be no difficult task to elect men to our State Legislature, who would enact a law, forever prohibit ing the sale of all intoxicating beverages, which are the parent of so much erinie, so many broken hearts and desolate homes ! This accomplished, and the law sustain ed and inforced by public sentiment, how many mothers and daughters would rise up and pronounce the riohest blowings upon these, who bed keen instrumental in bringing about so happy a result.

THE RIGHT OF CONSTITUENCIES. Tba House of Representatives ia oft,en spoken of aa a popular body, is which the people find mare fuithful exponents and executors of their will than in the Senate. Tbia ia, however, a popular error. No popular measure undergoes any real consideration whatever, in the House. Evtrything new is condemned from its vary birth, unless a majority of jlia dominant praty approve* it. This was well illustrated the other day, in a discussion on a now rule reported from the Committee on Rules, which provided that all motions to suspend the rules, ex cept to go into Committee ef tho Whole, »ball be seconded by a majority of the House ; thus completely disfranchising the minority. Of tho many distinguished members that participated in tbe debate, not on* appeared te remember that be had a constituency It was assumed that the majority should rule because it is a ma jority ; and oven th* ipinority did not claim a hearing as a matter of right, on behalf of its constituents, but only aa a matter of equity between existing partie* in tbe House. So the proposed rule was adopted. It has at last become well understood that legislator* are not in any sense re sponsible to the people. The veriest lag gards in the race of political progress, in other laude, recognize a certain responsi bility, as the result of their fears of a political revolution in tho constitution of Government. In this rrpnblio, however, the mo*t advanced statesman ia he, wbe acting on behalf of the party in power, affects te despise tbe people, and utterly ignores their wishes. Verily, he has his reward. No fear of revolution in the form of Government troubles him. Let him only''stick te the party," end he may do as he pleases. ' If be should not be re-elected' to the office he disgraces, it is nothing. He has "feathered his nest." TUB LOUISIANA COMPLICATION. The resolution relative to the ddmissioil of P. B. S. Pinchback as a Senator from the above named State, which a few day* ago appeared to be so certain of passing the Senat*, it i* now confidently believed will be postponed. Against its passage were the terrible revelations of Senator Carpenter's speech relating to tbe organiz ed fraud now in power under the Kellogg usurpation. These revelations were so absolutely astonishing, that the several Republican Senator* wbo bad determined to vote in favor of tba resolution have changed their minds, and will now vote againat it or suffer it quietly te be laid aside. It is conceded, on all banda, that no Legislative or Executive officer* of Louisiana have been duly elected by the legal voter* of the State, according to the Constitution and Laws thereof ; that such officers are only held de facto, in pursu ance of an illegal order of a Judge of the United States court, in oonformity to which, and to tbe representations of the incumbents of sapj ppffiee, tbe President has issued his proclamation, ^ognizing "S* what Mfimanifestly an usurpation of au thority. Even the President, it ia aaid, is now satisfied of the truth and justice of the aeoumtwM against the Kellogg ad mjniatratieh, and wjll bat interfere to pre vanilla peaoaable suppression by th# re jection of the claims of Pincbback. Mr. Carpenter has, therefore, introduced a bill which. Virtually ignoring the Govern ment ef Louisiana, provides for the eleo tion ef another to. be held on the fourth Tuesday of next May, under tbe super vision of United States authorities ; and if it be true that the President fails to tabs tha snaps, partisan, view of tbe situa tion that Senator Morton does, there ia a fair chance of this bill going through tbe Senate. There is but one ooutingeney ia which it can fail to pass, and that is the insisting by its author that ths proposed now election shall bo controlled by the United States. Both Democrats and Re publicans will oppose this provision bill ; the former, because they are ii of State Rights and opposed to Centraliza tion, and the l.attar because they believe that under the laws of the State,, as they now exist upon tbe Statuto book, sn elec-' tion may be peaceably held without inter ference ef military authorities acting un der martial 1»W. Blood enough baa al ready been shed on both sides to satisfy the fiercest partisans. It would now seem to be more accordant with the principles of Republican liberty, and vonsisteDt with public safety, to withdraw the supervising band of tbe nation's authority, sud fully recognize local State and Municipal indé pendance. 3 2 of the in favor PROPOSED. RECOGNITION Of BELLIGERENT RIGHTS IN CUBA. Members In both Houses of tiongross, and tbe constituencies of some democratic' members, are just now urging an aotivo intervention in favor of th* Cuban insur gents The recent demonstration of the democrats of Connecticut, in Convention assembled, is cited in favor of it. But current events in Cuba afford the beat pos sible evidence of the necessity of preserv ing peace. What do the Cuban people want f We, as a nation, have nothing to do with their sffitirs, except in virtue of our internation al relations and their proximity to our shores In view of the first constders tinn, it ought to be remembered that it is alleged sn behalf-of Spain, that the in surrection now existiog in Cuba has been from its very commencement, incited by citizens of the United States, who have been permitted to send out almost without disguise, men, arms, ammunition, pro visions and clothing to the insurgents of the Island. If now, the successes of the insurgents in certain departments of the Island have beeD as important as they have been reported, that circumstance, of itself, doe* not justify any interference Our Government can not assume the re sponsibility of the acts of agg'ession a gainst Spain, which our own citizens have committed, and öur Government has winked at. Nor does the existence of slavery in the Island afford the least ground for interposing our kind offices in favor of the rebels. If before our own civil war, the existence of slavery within the States of the Union afforded no ground for interference with tho reserved rights of the States, so now, slavery in Cuba ts formerly in the United States must be regarded os purely a creature of local law, with which the United Slate* Government, as such, has nothing to do. A. F. B. Civil suits are to bo immediately begun agsinst the officers and directors of the Franklin Savings Fund for maladministra tion ef affairs. .* TUB MARKETS. MIDDLETOWN GRAIN MARKET.
