A TYPICAL CASE OE OrEBJfBBIOB The daughter of a poor man named Wolf was walking out on Sunday afternoon in ipuy with tome children of her own agey the being about fourteen. It appear* they Were met by some larger girls among whom was one Mary O'Donnell; the latter aayi that the Wolf party called them some which Is, however, strenlonsly de nted. The result of the wordy squabble, If any, was that Mary Wolf was thrown Into A ditch, ftall of water, near the rolling mill over Third street bridge, and narrowly es caped drowning, beside* ruining har cloth ing. The O'Donnell party werebroug h before the Mayor who Inflicted a line oi tl ud costs, which, Judging the whole msttert In the light of our peculiar summary juris prudence, was correct. The O'Donnell party went before one of our Xsqnlres aad made charge against Mary Wolf, and a poor orphaned female ehOd, far.dbuie, Ac. They were mulcted la flues and coats amounting to $18. This Is absttedbeyond measure. If the jadgment of the Mayor was correct, that of the Justice Was sheer Injustice. There mnst be something frightfully wrong and oppressive, In either our laws, or the administration of them, when two decisions on ths same Issue, and with the same parties, so directly In conflict with each other, could be given. That a poor mu whose daughter's dothlug were mined and herself nearly drowned, would be sub jected* to pay such a sum as $8 (Wolf's share) for words spoken In wantonness, Is a piece of legal tyranny which we donbt could occur elsewhere. Consider what t8 means to a poor man earning tS per week, ud a dependent family—It Is a greater mulct than if one of our leading citizens were fined $1,000 for some vagary of the tongue! The Justices of the city, as a rule, abuse their power over the poor. Their jurisdiction for slander, or words In. citing to a breach of tbs peace, should be clearly defined and limited. We read every now and then of cases of clear oppression of the poor. We bave one piece of advice to those, who are In like cases are made tbe victims of Justices' law, to refuse to pay the fine, aud throw the responsibility of Imprisonment upon the magistrate. We are of the opinion that Judge Wales, upon habeas corpus, would teach the Esquires a llttla law, tinctured with mercy. If poor people who hays been fined by magistrates, will give us ths tacts, we will at least lay them before the public. Thb increase in our commerce is shown by the fact that the total numoer of vessels boarded by our revenue marine cutters dur ing July, August and September, at Bos. Ion, Newport, New York, Philadelphia and Baltimore was 5(82, against 3364 at the same ports.during the corresponding period of 1877. The greatest iucreaae at Baltimore, where 815 vessels were boar, dad in tha last three months, against only 800during the corresponding period of last year. P. K. A. Ball, Nov. 8tb. Bntterley copies old pictures, 802 Market strut, BTAKV BY TUB MUKICZPJLITT outlined he Every Evening, which? foreshadows a movement to create efcxodkitebsien Uo manage the A plan h*s ' It is vlry true 1 that tract the bai&s, , aicTwefi deserve^ It is also equally rater the commipion hiaglven nails the praise given to it. true that the management of the Water Department of this oily, is costly beyond ail reasonable hounds* The entire btasi ness of the department could be admipis* tared by the Chief Engineer, end a person who would do the brrahds, end kelp with the accounts in busy season's of the year; By continued pressure upon Council, this reform oould be had. In so far as the gen eral wasteful mangement of municipal bodies are concerned, Every Evening is right. We are at all times disposed to join our efforts wi'h if, or any other ex ponent of opinion in promoting economy ; but we would prefer infinitely the leaks of urban administration, to the surrender any municipal right ;to a commission ap pointed by the Governor, Legislature, o r any power not flowing directly from tax ables oi the city. The municipalities have ever been ; at once—the cradle oj>' liberty, and the sturdy fo# of oppression SBy movement, to impair the entire and absolute municipal rights of the city of Wilmington, is a step towards Legislative, and Executive dominations, sure to end in misrule, and which evexy intelligent stu dent of the history of liberty will con. demn, and if he ife a lover of freedom will resist Constitutional liberty is an out growth of townr, trace its history, audit may be read, in the acquirement from Baronial or Regal power,of chartered priv eleges, bought with the capatilized wages of industry, or won by the good pikes of the burghers. Were it not for the citizens of the Flemish, and French towns, and the train bands of London, and other English cities, self government as it exists would be an unknown quantity, The retnrn to a citv government, appointed by the Execu> tiveof a State, is going back in principle, to the Feudal thrall from which our antes tors emancipated themselves* Stand by the Sovernginity ol >l.e municipality :—it is true-political wisdom to do so— If you you do not like your Councilman you can turn them out,not so with a comm ission.The Water Commission did well—if it had not done so,where was the remedy ? Think of that feature of commissions, they are accountable to nobody after their appoint ment we mean practically so; and if one appointed for us proved to be wasteful or dishonest, we might fret and fume, but you Id not remedy tbe wrong. We eonjnre the people, to permit no invasion of their municipal rights, it might be temporarily beneficial; but in the end, would be sure to produce the usual crop of evils, along*, side of whieh, those we now complain of would be trival. Enforce economy, and reform from within, this is wisdom ; any other course mnst come of gross ignorance, oi the philosophy of municipal govern ment, or a a desire to destroy urban indes peadence, for personal, aggrandizment 6r profit. *l(j The editor of the London Troth is him-: aelf a Jew, and a very able one, and he makes the 1 ' following remarks: "I have never understood the touchiness of the Jews at being called Jews, even when the : term Is used rather.as a designation of race than opprobrionsly. I see nothing to bt either particularly ashamed of, or to be particularly proud of, in being a Jew. In Eogland Jews have a great advantage over Christians, because, while they have the advantage of being Englishmen, they also have the advantage of belonging to a pow ful fraternity, bound together like Free masons, ever ready to support any of it* members- No people are more exclusive than Jews, and no people have more marked traits of character. Let an Eng lishman and a Jew have the same fortune and the latter will spend more than the former. Out of business they are more os tentatious, more liberal and more charita ble than Christians. I would rather, with an eye lo my own interests, do business with a Christian than with a Jew; but were I a beggar I would rather beg of a Jew than of a Christian." WASHINGTON LETTER. From our Special Correspondent.! Washington, D. C., Oct. 12,1878. Your correspondent was one of the over sanguine Democrats who looked for a mere complete overthrow of the Republi can party in Ohio, Indiana, and Iowa, on Tuesday last, than came to pass. To be sure, that party last two Congressmen in Iowa, one at least in Indiana and three in Ohio, and the Democrats have the Legisla. ture of Indiana, against the most indefensi ble gerrymander in Federal history. All this is glory enough, but not as much loss as the Republican deserved, nor as much gain as the Dem jerats had a right to ex pect. We should take to heart the lesson , _ . , J , 1 • XT of October aBd make sure work in Nerem. ber. In both Pennsylvania and New York there is an excellent chance to gain mem. ham oi the House, and good be gone by careful fltteoti laiures which will alect of Cameron and pradly, should ~Br*f of the more p may Un 1 t0 <mw- ^ be beaten.

No fair man will hold : thf-.State pf New York o 1 tbs North ifippneible for these crimes and sar that their people are worse than ethers* No fair man Will say of the South, either' that her people should be specially con demned because of the case cited by Sena, tor CcnkHng. He went too far, and de serves rebuke, and unless I am much mis taken, he will receive it in the November •lections. '■ 1 Qf Cameron's chances no one speaks hopefully but himself. The praise of Grant, to the effect that Cameron was the most satisfactory cabinet officer be had, is raise, and will hot aa mator ss 'much as it not, in itself high sist theatnbitious was expected to do. Besides, he was not s satisfactory Senator, however well he may bave suited his Chief when in the cabinet. There is discontent in Pennsylvania. There seems to be no doubt that tbe cabi net yesterday agreed that the estimated to be sent to ths House for the expenses of tbe varions departments during the next year should be very much less than any which bays been sent in since the war. The reason given was that the receipts of the Government were falling off. The real reason is that the people will no longer stand the extravagance of the past Com mittees of the two Houses Bhould be ap pointed as soon as Congress meetj to ascer tain in what way the greatest amount of reduction can be secured without interfer ing with the workings of tbe government: The regular Committee of the House to which the reduced estimates will be sent should examine them with care, is the ad ministration is quite capable or trying, far political effect, to bring about reductions in departments where reductions should not be inade Speaker Randall should exercise the greatest prudence in the selection of his special committee with a view to saving at least fifty million! in next year. It can be done, and safely- Dow. TO THOSE WANTS AO CLOTHE*. Quinn and Adatn bolh learned the same trade; but Quinn could beat Adam at tai loring, and give him odds every time.
