The question not be is he a good Democrat or a good Republican, but le he an hdnest and capable man for the office. It is within the power of the voters cot the county to put good men into the various places of ttust and honor, and they propose to exercise that power this year. They do not want such men as Huff in the Commissioner's office, not such a vicious and ignorant partisan as Bowman in the Water-works. Oun foreign dispatches to-day an . 13001100 the important fact ol a probable , ending of the Herzegovinian insurnia Hon. The foreign powers, to prevent a complete openiug of the Eastern clues ., ' tion, have interfered, and the result, if ; our information is correct, will be some . thing like justice for the tax-ridden pee ple of Herzegovinia without the per piexities that were sure to lonely a more , protracted struggles. The insuigente , have been making headway since the - - revolt commenced, and aided as they , have been by their neighbors on all sides, will not feel like giving up at anything short of complete severance from tbe Ottoman Empire. The intervention of - Austria, England, Germany and Husain, will, however, doubtless bring them to a ' halt, for whatover their own inclination may be they will not be permitted to jeopardize Oh peace of Europe without - , the sanction of the Great Powert. Each one of theft not being perfectly sure of ;its own advantages in caomot a redivisiv - of the territory of European Turkey ' prefers that matters shall pretty much remain as they now are, and that peace shall be more fully secured by guaran teeing to the insurgent Province align rights and privileges from Turkey as will make the Moslem yoke rest more easily on their necks. t et-tt IHR NIPTRIC SYSTIM 'No boy or girl in tba land who has been ' called on to master or try to master the , intricacies of our tables of weights and measures has come through the 'ordeal - , , with , anything but deep-seated and , thorough contempt for the system, and tliose who have reached matutity have more thoroughly presirved the objection to the syetem than the knowledge of it. in fact, the probability is that in a eel , , Notion of oue hundred person.. from the aXerage class of lotelligent citizens not ' ten could to-day unravel the mysteries ot "bitiroy lie,ght," "Apothecary Weig4" "Avpirduic it Weight," "Long Measure,t-Cloth Measure,"s1Wine teas ' ore," "Ale or Beer Measure," and the , dozens. of tables over which they puzzled - their brains and worried their memories , 'for weeks- and months in early days. The syetem is an abominable one and should have long since given place to DUO more simple and effective. The - average scholar spends ,niore time over It than any other branch of aritometic only to find it reversed and another sys - tem introduced when he reaches college', tied studies the scientilie works there -- presented him. The metrio, system is being generally introduced ...through efforts of the American metro , logical soclety and Is beginning to meet with that attention which ' It deseries. It has already been miopted by tbe majority of nations, and has been authorized by our Congress , since 1806. The simpHeity of the system recommends it to every one, and especi illy is it adapted to our use, as it is al , ready in use in our co'mputations of money, and would thus be easily adopted is the other departmentsoar mills, , cents and dimes corresponding both la nunenciature and in their decimal rola , ' Lions to Mitch other with the mill-meter, cent-meter, deci-meter, the mill-igram. - eent-igram, deo-igram, which constitute , the metric system of weights and matte s urea. The system as introduced In Ger-, ,many some years ago, and no trouble was ' found in popularizing it. Charts and models of toe weights and milasures were exhibited everywhere in all the ' stop wludows and other places, andthe , . consequence ,was that the system Was rapidly oompreheuded and be mime as rapidly popuiar. An effort is w tow being made to popularize the Irle system in this country. A circular containing an agreement btudlog the .nigaers to 11110 the metric system sfter ' July 4, 1876, has been sent to all the , &ties and towns in the United States Containing upward of 8,000 inhabitents. prery oity or town so tar canvassed has ' itetarned overwhelming majorities. 4oritier bad previously been secured , trOM New York.

The system is certainly worthy of card., ful attention, awl it preiented to. the people of this city should be encouraged anctevery effort made to britig about its general adoption. The number of signa tures of architects from Boston Slone amounts to 104, nearly a totality of the profession. The following simple tables give all that there Is in the system of weights and measures: ' Money-10 mills make a cent.
