Judge Swayr.e never used Goneral Gar illustrate the dootrine he by a side easy west field's conduct laid down concerning the aooep legislator of a fee for official influence. In , however, in which the responsi bility of tho contractors for services den d and expenditures made by the lob byist who paid this very fee Judge 8 wayne's opinion with great force and Mr. Doolittle, a lawyer decided, cited effect by engaged , and this payment of $5,000 to the Chairman of the House Committee brought before the in the with Appropriations court to show that the operations for old which the lobbyist sought pay and corrupt aud against public laid down bursemeut policy according to the law by Justice 8wayne. On this argument the claim of the lobbyist was refused by Judge up be Farwell, of the Chicago court. We grant that had the story, as origi nally told, been true it would have been effeotive with those who are influ by personal opinions and enced declarations than by mere facts and logic, lies and we expect such to make the most of the mistake by which a lawyer's illustra tion ot Justice 8wayne's dooision was at tributed to the Justice himself, but bow this appear of any oonsequence to thoughtful people ? The fact is that Gen eral GArfield did accept from tho notori ous "Dick" Parsons, who a lobby pressing a paving contract the Diatriot of Columbia Ring, a argument to idence counsel for not fee of $5,000. He made earn that fee and there is prepared a brief in the He in fact did nothing whatever in that lawyers that he the a way of with ten times his reputation at the bar would not have gladly done for $ 1(H). 00. How could General Garfield have imagined legal seyi that the large sum of $5,000 was, then, simply a legal fee ? He was not merely a member of Congress, but the Chairman of the House Committee on Appropria tions. The lobbyists had no doubt as to what the $5,000 was for, for they imme diately began telegraphing their friends that they had secured the Chairman of the House Committee on Appropria tions and that the importance of the acquisition could not be overestimated, he held the purse strings of the Nation. True, Gen. Garfield was not responsible for their opinion, but how oould he have imagined that the enormous fee paid him simply for the alight, if any, services he rendered as a lawyer ? He wah not a famous lawyer accustomed to $5,000 fees, and to acoepting them oourse. How could he, then, have failed to comprehend that it was not his legal abilities but his a political and offioial influ which these lobbyists wanted to to I... I ! ' ' - * *f buy?

But it ought to be I much greater, and would be if outside | that rate, a attention was once more drawn to the place and inducements were offered ( to manufacturers to come here. These marshes are, we tbiufe, the greatest attractions that can be offered, and the extended works the Jessup «fc ■ Moore Company have just erected on pre- ' cisely similar ground, a little further up j the Christiana, show that there is diffi culty iu erecting substantial buildings on j marsh grouud. In fact, that was demon- ' irly all the build- ! strated long ago; for ings in this city between the Philadelphia, j iiroad and the Wilmington A Baltimore Christiana made ground, as is the greater part of the railroad itself.

General Hancock's candidacy is the best possible guarantee as to the sincerity of the South in renewed devotion to the unity of the Government, and he has. of all men, the best right to appeal to his fellow citizsi of the North to lay aside tho hatreds, the animosities and prejudices of tbe war time aud to generously ami patriotically help to re-establish uuiou iu purpose, senti ent and common aspiration, in faot and law. of ell He speaks, too, the clear, honest and manly word concerning Civil Service re form. He makes pretense to expect ing it through a trick performed to attract a small minority of the people to one tho other party, but says simply, hut truly, that the basis of substantial and practical Civil Servioe reform must be first established by tho people in filling the elective offices. General Hancock, soldier though he is, evidontly has a realizing sense of thu fact that this is a Government by the people, whioh many familiar with otvil affui often fail in, and he does uot expect tho stream to rise higher than its source that tbe representatives of a people who c nothing about Civil Servioe reform going to set up a standard of fitness for public office whioh, applied to themselves by their constituencies, would leave them at homo. The only way to Civil Service reform is to educate public sentimeut up to demanding it, and then the demand will carry with it its by electing Statesman i auswer who represent the idea, not,there is more sound in this brief reference to Civil Service reform than iu all the schemes the politi cal Miss Nancies, who seek reform through bribing the other party iuto enact ing laws which neither party wants, evolved out of their We will never havo consciousness.

Wilminoton, Dkl , August 2.—A World correspondentealled ou Senator Bayard ut his offije in this city to-day to ask his opinion of General Hancock's letter to General Sherman, printed in yesterday's World. The correspondent fouud tbo Senator so well pleased with the letter that despite his chronic objection to tbe a method of eliciting thu be talked freely id (hat interview opinions of public about tho matter. Mr. Bayard the first thing to be noted in the letter the quiet and uuoonsoious force of char acter displayed in it. "Letters," bo said, "written with au object are like all pre arranged affairs, open to the suspicion that some things are deliberately sup pressed and other things made unduly emphatic. This letter exhibits Hancock the patriot and soldier writing out his premeditated views upon a grave called 11< politioal crisis. Thu letter out by repeated letters from his military superior. He did not origiuate the Hpondenoe.as the opening sentences show. meaning and known as I did then going ou in Washington and at the War Department. Troops even then, nuder Oamerou's inspiration aud with President Grant's approval, were being moved towmds Washington. Tho army liad overthrown already the Louisiana election,for Wellsaud Anderson aud their negro colleagues would not have dared to pervert tho returns unless they had been backed and protected by tbe military arm of the United States Gove ment. Florida and South Carolina had suffered the same fate, aDd the work only remained to bo consummated at Wash ington in I* ebruary by a repetition national soale ot the frauds committed iu New Orleans aud elsewhere iu November. "How do you think the letter will affect the popular judgement of ilauoook's political abilities ? "It will dispose forever of the pretense that he is a mere soldier, a 'uamby-painby' with no ideas politics and civil govormueut. He Las as distinct views coucorimig publie affairs as any man I know, aud be gives expression to some of them in tins very loiter with s simplicity and directness Gut make his presentation as strong made by any subjects before OougreBS Commission during the peudency of the electoral dispute. Coutrast his language concerning the decision of tbo South Carolina Supreme Court with General Grant's answer to Senator Randolph, who cited that decision to him aud was bluntly told by Graut that be cared nothing for the decision of the Court. Indeed, Gen. Hancock's views of publio duty form the most decided coutrast to tlioBe of Graut. 'How can I, a soldier, best sustain a government of law ?' always seemed to be Hancock's inquiry. 'How best assort my in litary power, despite the restraint of laws ?' seemed to be tbe usual thought with Graut " "What do you think of his Allusion to the proper mode of settling the count of tbe electoral "Having given tho constitutional ques tions connected with the election of Presi dent and Vice President and tbe control of the two houses of Congress over the election much thought and study, I must freely confess that General Haucock has emphasized iu his letter the true meaning of tbe Constitution iusuch a such force bh to give To appreciate its full force you muHt have a 01 - any that of bis views ou those the Electoral is a I. soldier, ?" aud with and stronger light upon the subject. He presents with great clearness the idea of the separate deposits of power in the House of Repre sentatives aud iu the 8enate iu tbe the inability of the two honseB in joint session to ol in a declaration that a have beim majority of tbe electoral delivered for auy candidate. In that the duty of choosing a President imme diately devolvis on the House of Repre sentatives, voting by States, while the duty of choosing a Vice President devolves tho Senate. This liue of separate action is continued iu analogy by the sepa rate power given the Senate alour as President its event of tlie death of th«; President aud lira House to lie elect presiding officer iu the but Vice President. Iu that eluuti of Representatives has t say that. Tbe golden tho raufi, iu tuy lu.iKiuem, •The army should have noth iug to do with the election or iuangura tien of a President.'

If Ur of Hanoook's letter there n been 1 need of that bo id fore, his recent conversation lmd impressed him more Htrongly than with his knowledge ami correct judgment of public nflairs. "Auyiiody," he said, I "who imagines that Haucock will depend on some one else for his ideas of civil ' administration will have to surrender that opiuion on reading this admirable letter, written out iu Missouri where he had not the aid of a clelk. Furthermore" ■natc..,' ..»lierai Hanoook ha» iu pratented tbe (treat issue raised by the fraud of 1H7I1 to the Atui rieau poo. pie with tho force which really belongs to it and divi sled of all that may have tended to weaken or obscure it.

Our peo ple would either abandon all respect for d interest iu their elections or they would take up arms to make them riH prof able." Mr Bayard ooncuded tbe interview as follows: "General Hancock's letter in in the highest senae a State paper, though uot intuudsd to bo ouo. It is deroid of the formalities which attach to official communication, but it deals with a most difficult problem of constitutional powers with wouderful clearness and force. The who shall hereafter deny to Hancock tbo meed of having ably dealt, and in a high spirit of patriotic statesmanship,with the most serious and difficult crises in our reaont history, will stultify himself.
