HKNRYnKED&CO, divobs awaeaoeaTS-maa. WKDMtMDAY- ..HAY 9 City Railways— The Policy of the Council and the Courts—Its Effects. Our court Id respect to itreet railway! haa , boon directed to the accomplishment of tin- !'gle pnrpoae), to-wit chtap trantportation or the people. In pursuit of this end, we hare, at times, appeared to take the part of the ' 1 companies; but this is because, at present, their policy tends toward the desired object, while that of the City Council and the Su- :. perior Court is in opposition to it. How much the people are inconvenienced by their action seems to be nothing ta either of these ' bodies, so that the operations of the compa nies are crippled and retarded. Indeed, it ran be shown most indisputably that, had It been the deliberate design of both to render these improvements as inaccessible as possi ble to the people, they could not, consistently with permitting them to move at all, have effected more than they have. They bare done just as badly as possible; and in order to do it, have violated every princi ple and precedent that stood in their way. There are times when these gentlemen profess grant love for the people. These times occur just before days of municipal f election. When they want office, who so ; xoslous for popular rights who so enthus Giastic in favor of popular interests? When they have office, who so grasping and thought less of everything but their own enmities and ambitions? There is nothing to utterly hoi low as the public spirit of a petty demagogue. City Councils are made up of nothing better than mortal men. They are prone to forget the rock whence they were hewn, and the , hole in the pit from which they were dieted They are too apt to think that they own the town. For one and two years they have the matter in their own hands; and at the end of that time, what remains to those who put them into the places they occupy? Why, in too many cases, merely to choose between them and certain others as nearly like them as possible. . If the railways are nuisances, what power has Court or Council to permit them at all ? Has either of those bodies the shadow of a right to allow nuisances obstructions in the highway perversions of streets to illegit imate uses? robody, Judge or Councilman, will contend fgr any such authority. ': If railways are not nuisances, obstructions of the highways, or perversions of streets to illegitimate uses, what power has Court or Council to forbid or retard their construction, or to burden or throw obstacles in the way of their operations? None I We affirm it with confidence none whatsoever. Everything that is done in that direction is wrong in principle, and as all aberrations in princi ple are bad in their effects injurious in every practical point of view, i. The companies suffer from it, but they are mot alone the sufferers the aggregate of in jury done to the people is infinitely greater than of that which falls upon the corpora tions. The object of these modes of convey ance is to supply the means of cheap trans portation to the people. This end is best subserved when the means are brought within the pecuniary reach of the largest number. Every tax upon transportation is a discour agement to such as are affected by it. The largest class, in point of numbers, is the poor est; and consequently the direct effect of railway-passenger taxation is to forbid the use of those facilities to that great class for which they were especially designed, and by which they are especially needed. . i at tax or one cent per passenger does not look very large to a wealthy gen tleman who contemplates it in tho light of a ingle passage ; but let us look at it in a dif ferent way stating for the purpose existing facts: Two little girls residing in Newport, find employment on Freeman-street. The distance is too great to walk, and they are obliged to ride, which they do upon the cars of one of the lines of city railways. They pay five cents each, morning and evening, which is twelve cents per week taxes to the city. In the course of the year, therefore, each of these little girls, who earn scanty wages, to support parents reduced to poverty, pays the handsome aggregate of six dollars and twenty-four cents, to the corporation of Cincinnati, simply for permission to ride through its streets on a railway a sum con siderably greater than is paid in city taxes by the establishment where she is employed. And this is called legislative wisdom polit ical economy knowledge of the arts of gov ernment caring for the welfare of the work ing classes! Could a worse policy than one that leads to results such as these have been adopted? Let men try their ingenuity, and see if they can devise anything less rational or more oppressive. ' The railway companies understand very well the philosophy of low fares, as increas ing the revenue by enlarging the number of passengers; but by this wretched policy of the Government, they are unable to put it in practice. Thus, while the people are wronged, the companies are deprived of their profits, and cut off from their usefulness; and while this is the case, the men who are doing it, are actually priding themselves upon their sagacity I If such are our wise men, what, in the name of Heaven, are our fools ? One of the Heroes. a Dean, the uxorious coachman. It remarks, concerning his performance: "It is by no means discreditable to him, that while employed as coachman in a wealthy family, he stole the heart and person of the favorite daughter. There was a tort of hero ism in the act worthy of commendation.' I he breed or heroes has been growing scarce of late; there were suspicions that it was running out; it it fortunate, therefore, that the Timet has discovered a way of recu perating it out of what it called on Monday "an illiterate, impudent, brazen coachman." Will the 7iaef inform thepublic whether it regards the act bf John Dean as moral or physical heroism? With such moral obliquity, we suppose that if Dean had, in addition, carried off Mr. Boker'i strong box, the Timet would have regarded him at demi-god a new Hercules. There is no accounting for tastes, but certainly the Timet it entitled to the sole possession of its hero br right of discovery. It is reported in the papers that the Bishop of Norfolk attended the contest for the cham pionship, it is to be hoped that the Bishop will improve the occasion to rebuke the foul play of the British people, and to impress upon his congregation the propriety of a more strict observance of the decalogue of the two bunches of fives. . . to The Countess de Ohalot, widow of the great actor Talma, hat just died in Pari. ,,... , The Hospital Lots—Proposal to Repurchase —The Ferguson Bill. "The Council of said city are hereby au thorized to repurchase any ground heretofore old and formerly belons-intt to the site of said Hospital, and to pay for the same out of the said sum 01 2za,uuu. The foregoing, is section two of the "Fer guson Bill" and applies to "all cities of the first-class, having a population exceeding eighty-five thousand inhabitants." These cities, all of them in contemplation of the constitution have had hospital grounds, which have been wrongfully or imprudently told off by their respective governments, The same are now, thanks to the Ferguson Bill, authorized to tax the people to buy them back again. In our City Council, the Initia tory steps for the repurchase were taken at its last session. We may go back in memory to the time when this property was told. It was a day of then unexampled corruption. The pro perty did not belong to the city to sell. The city was a trustee to hold it for a specific purpose; anu me sale was so palpably a breach of trust that no valid title could be acquired under it. This the purchasers knew at the time; but probably did not then un derstand the full mercantile force of so serious a defect. They doubtless understand it better now ; and it is perhapt to these con siderations that we owe this part ol the Fer guson Bui. It is not probable that the title of the Hos pital was in any degree affected by the sale to which we allude. Its Trustees or Officers would have the right, without legislation, at any time to eject the present holders, and leave them to their remedy against the city. l nit, Mr. Jferguson, lawyer, probably un derstood; and the fact throws a shade of sus' picion over the origin and motives of the hospitable branch of his law. A key to this part of the proceeding might, possibly, be found nnder an inquiry as to who are the holders of the Hospital Lots, and who are their legal advisers. It it optional with the council, as we un derstand it, to levy the tax of two hundred and twenty-five thousand dollars provided for in the Ferguson Bill, for the redemption of this property or not. It it probable that the tax will be levied and the money paid. The impulse to this species of legislation is usually given by interested parties. Al though there was not one honorable man in the city knowing the circumstances of the case who did not feel inimical to the sale of the hospital lots although the movement was protested against on the part of the hos pital, and opposed by active friends of the institution, by every means in their power- yet the force of speculators, men who had determined to make money out of that par ticular piece of property, was too great to be resisted. The virtue of the guardians of the public Interest suffered itself to be overcome, and an act that would have been most un wise, had it not been illegal, was accom plished. It is to be hoped that time has brought its retributions. How many men are in the Council now who were there aiding that series of most iniquitous proceedings of which the sale of the Hospital lots was a part, we do not remember. But the history of that day, its filthy, open corruption, is what should not be recalled by those who had a share in it, without feelings of shame and repentance. Help of Situations Wanted. know that we are offering a benefit to the community as well as to ourselves by calling attention to the facilities which the Priss furnishes to all who want help or sit uations, to place their wants before thousands of the laboring and employing classes at the nominal cost of a twenty-five cent advertise ment in this paper. We know by the answers brought by such of these advertisements as directed replies to this office, that there is no way so efficient for procuring help or employ ment, and if the advantages of the Press for this kind of advertising were fully known, a vast amount of time which it now wasted in looking at random through the city for work, and time and patience lost in picking up help promiscuously, would be laved. Naive Confession. The traveling dead-head editor of the Commercial, writing from Washington, thus confesses to his associates his apprehensions: "The editorial greenhorns engaged by the managers of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad will be here to-morrow, and I fear I shall be asked whether I am on that excursion." It is very rarely that an editor is gifted with such remarkable'power to see himself as others see him. Tut proprietors of the Commercial have leased the fourth story of their building to a society of Turners. The physical inversions and gyrations upon this floor will be quite illustrative of the doctrinal flip-flaps and somersaults performed in the apartments below. Under the circumstances, the topsy turvy attachment is a firstrate idea; but as our cotemporary is in the possession of scru ples touching the morality of the "ring," it is probable that no sparring will be permitted about the premises. Otherwise, for the en couragement of "the manly art of self-de fense, we would propose as we have grown too fitt to enjoy hard knocks about the "bread-banket," to donate, in token of our good-will, our glovet to the Association. Thi Commercial professes to be greatly shocked at the Papal Bull of excommunica tion, which it calls "A ridiculous imperti nence, at least three centuries behind the age." Its sensibilities are particularly exer cised that the curse of excommunication should be specific and in detail. To curse at wholesale it not to bad; but to curse with specifications, is horrible; yet in order to fit the case to excite its sensations, the Commer cial with its accustomed fairness in contro versy, especially when the Catholics are con cerned, produces from monkish records a formula several centuries old, and not at all like the Papal Bull. Fbiim an-strkt, that used to be such a beautiful thoroughfare for fast rounsr men with their fast horses, is now traveled over with metbodittical precision. Gaieile. We did hope, after the QazttU't elaborate apology a short time ago, that it would re strain its propensity to make such light and trivial allusions to our evangelical denomina tions. Why the the travel on Freeman-street would be compared to Methodism, we are entirely unable to understand, exoept by the QatelWt propensity to make funny allusions our orthodox denominations.

Whatever aids to rob the tomb of the terror with which to many associate it, should be encouraged i who ever lays a flower upon a crave is a benefacton By some mysterious means, by lack of rcneun ur proper euucauon, Dy a lonaness ror life or an excess of vanity, death is usually a phantom, disturbing all our dreams of the future. Death is natural as sleep and as ben eficial and necessary no doubt: and yet it ever seems unnatural, and, though a friend, is, for the most part, deemed a foe. With all our pretentions Christianity, we lack the timple faith of the Moravians, who regard death as a blessing and the dead as blessed. As we advance and devolop spiritually, we will more clearly see the great truth that departure from this sphere is a release from bondage, an escape from toil, a surcease of care ana pain. The famous Viscount Verulam has said: It it the dark surroundings of death, the bier, the pall, the weeping friends, not death itself that make terrible the exodus of life. Hence, the last resting place of the dead, if adorned a.nd beautified, has a moral and a toothing influence which, while it deprives the grave of half its horror, robs it of all its repulsiveness. To this fact, doubtless, we are Indebted for the beautiful cemeteries, the flower-bordered walks, the artificial lakes, the sculptured monuments that mark the earthy couches of me iovea ana lost: to tnis we owe our own Spring Orove, which, as a necropolis, is equaled by few, and surpassed by none. Despite the sadness associated with the spot, a melancholy satisfaction arises from breathing its peaceful atmosphere, which sanctifies, while it tranquilizes, the spirit, of the wanderer there. As we stroll, in medita tive mood, through the verdure-bordered walks, and read the various inscriptions on the tombs, we lose ourselves in speculation on life and the future; and, reflecting' on the stern fate of man, his inevitable doom of suf fering, hit destined disappointments, we al most long to lie with those who Beem so utterly emancipated, so entirely at rest. Each of the many hundreds who sleep be neath the sod had asnirations and ambitions. joys and sorrows, loves and hatreds, as we nave. Their history was ours.

That mound marks the snot benmth whir-h all that was mortal of the blue-eyed Clara was hidden from the world. Few summer skies have dropped their tears upon the green uiauiie iui ues upon ner cold bosom; tew zephyrs have wafted her voice from Hcuven, telling the waiting clay she will no more re turn to inform it with transcendent beauty. Dear Clara, thou darlingest darling of all; art thou dead, indeed? Are the lily hands we held, and the rosy lips we touched with rap ture, as the toil beneath our feet? Shall we hear no more thy lute-like tones? see never again the smile that made the midnight radiant to onr eyes? Does not our love still link us, though the chain be lengthened? Talk of love, there was the dross of passion even in that we bore to Clara; but here all it sanctified and divine. Here the angel spirit went up to God; here our destiny grew dark, and purpose perished. Involuntarily our knee is bended on this heap of earth in token of a celestial presence. The ashes that must ever be moistened with our tears, are gathered at our feet. The sainted author of our being sleeps within this narrow place, the bright being that compels us to believe in Heaven. Dearest, best of mothers, at thy grave we implore thee to visit us in spirit, that our heart may not all turn to adamant, and our soul to selfishness.
