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

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
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, 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

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
