The HcjmbluaH evidently is disposed to rogsr.d
the passage of certain acts by tlio Legislature as a
R «publican triumph. It says :
"Every Evening ccnlomns the judgement of the
person who employod the legal geutltuieu to ex
plain to tho members of the Legislature the na
ture of the various hilts relating to this city,
which came up for action at the recent seasiou.
The best evidence of judgement in the matter is
the fact tliat success crowned their efforts, not
withstanding the opposition of certain gentlemen
who aspire to control the Democratic paity in our
city, and who declared that the bills should not
pass iu their present shape. Tho fact is that these
geutlemcu were not only out-geueraled, but com
pletely pickled."— Rejiublican.
Doubtless the Democratic gentlemen a'ludcd lo
w.ll be remuded by the above, of the remarks of
tiie si. - oug man who accused his oucimes of se
curing a triumph by plowing with bis heifer. Dut
the case >s even more poiuted. Yet the victory is
dearly purchased, nud cost the people of or* city,
to a'vit with, $775. Now, bo it remembered, that

What is called In Delaware "justice" is a species
Hi barbaric cruelly which would bo disgraceful to
it tribe of asvages, and which is in u State profess
ing civilisation simply crime unpardonable. We
j csterday called attention to the disgusting and de
grading scene of Saturday at ,\iw Castle, when
liuur tueu were publicly whipped aud another ex
posed for an hour iu the pillory, but in a Wilaiiug
ton paper »0 find the uunouucemriit of another
New Castle performance which throws King Herod
quite into the shade, and makes the eccentricities
df Nero seem hut harmless pleasant!ics. On Thurs
day last a colored woman was brought to lust on
the charge of having murdered lier ilieg.timale
child. Thu charge was fully sustained, the woman
confessing her enme, but as there were many m<l
igatrag circumstances which tended to palliate her
guilt, the Attorniy Ueneral requested the jury to
render a verdict ot murder in the second degree
a request in which the defence joined and such
verdict was accordingly rendered. On Wednesday
the woman was brought before the court aud sen
tenced "lo pay a line of 85.0UU pad costs, to stand
in tbe pillery for one boar on Saturday, the 24th
lasUnt, to receive on the same day sixty lashes upon
bare Lack, aud bfrimpriionod for lite." It seems
hardly credible that in tbe nineteenth century, in
a civilixed and professedly Christian laud, und in
a State which forms n part of a free republic, that
*0 barbarous a sentence us this should be pronouu
cibd upon a cnmiual, however great his or her crime
might he; but facts are stubborn things, and the
fact that this sentence was delivered cannot be
gaiusayed. * * * and that the people of Delaware
ne not more deeply moved only shows the degra
ding effect of their savage customs. Undoubtedly
they are joined to their idols, but instrul of letting
them alone ehar.ty dictates that we send them mis
sniuaiies, lor they ceitaiuly need such functionaries,

At the timo we read the aiticle, frein which we
quote the at>ove, we '* 'd not d' cm it worth while
to enter into an arge nent with r iy one capable
of indictiug such a diaL.be; for it evidently eiiows
that tbe writer was wholly destitute of every sen
timent that would mini» ud him to tbe chrixtinn
world. Here is a poor innocent babe, one of whom
tbe Saviour said "let tittle children come unto me
and forbid them nut," Ac., murdered iu cold blood
by a woman, its mother, and t'ie order for the
whipping of this woman it termed a woioe died

There is little use of ailcmpting argument with
those who are either reckicsi of what they Bay or
Ignorant of tbe language they use. \Wieu tbe
