THE PEIHCE OT WALES.
" The Prince ef Vales is dying.
That ia short, but to the point. Seldom
baa more been suggested to the mind
by the same number of words. " The
Prince of Wales is dead," will proba-
bly be added to-day. And then what T
The Queen and Princess of Wales are
crazed with grief. The heir to the
throne of England must quit his great
realm, close his royal eyes on aland he
w.is destined to govern, and take his
place with the humblest of his subjects.
The common deBtroyer does not recog
nize distinctions that men make among
) tbemsolven, but descends to the bar
vest, striking wherever a subject is
i found, whether it wears a crown, or
starves in the desolate fields. England
' will Iote a King, pomp and power an
instrument, but what will the people
Jose that they would not lose if an
: ordinary person died ? Ha has,
ao fur, done little . to gratify
his countrymen and,H' has been
,. whispered ail over tb 6 realm that such
. was the want of popular confidence in
x him that the death of the Queen would
.. be the signal for the proclamation of a
''republic. Such an event could not oc
cur on the death of the Princes We do
not suppose that it' will nnsettle any
thing, or make more than a ripple on
the surface of England's affairs. With
out regard to royalty, the opinions of
the world will progress, and those prob
lems suggested by an advancing age
will be worked out whether royalty lirea
or dies. Whether for better or for
worse, the people of all lands would dis
pense with the expense of royal fami
lies. That is the course the sentiment
ijf the world is taking. There is in
England a strong Republican party.
Its workings are mostly t secret, but
nevertheless effective. The under class
es are easily impressed, and when told
that a change of institutions would work
a change in their condition, they cannot
remain indifferent. But a violent change
in the form of the English government
need not be expected, whether the
Prince or the Queen die. It is impossi-
We not to sympathize with the afflic
tions of the royal family. Whatever
else may be said of the Queen, it will
not be denied that sbe is an amiable
ruler and an excellent woman.
SELF-GOVEBNHEKT.
The people who govern themselves
through representatives care little for
men. They want competency, faithful
ness Hnd disinterestedness. When they
cense to listen to the siren songs of spec
ulative combinations, they will have ar
rived at a point long coveted by the pa
trii.t. What do they care about a man's
cleverness if he be competent to trans
act their business? Does not' good
sense suggest that, as we must have of
ficers, we should retain a' good one when
we find him?- It does not matter if hun
dreds be superior to him in many re
spects. It matters everything that one
has been tried and the others have not.
What good to the public would be sub
served by the defeat of Johnson? Is
his administration condemned? Has
he not made the most of the resources
of the city? Has he not been faithful,
intelligent and scrupulously honest?
Who could have done belter? Does
'there exist, then, any rational reason for
'turning him out?
8EVEBE WIBTEE.
The World says: The earnest intensi
ty with which winter begins it career
this year is severely felt in more ways
than one. Not only do the poor, who
are always unprepared for emergencies,
suffer from insufficient shelter, clothing
'and food, but the rich have received a
sharp cut from the iudiscriminaling sea
son. A large number of canal-boats
have been suddenly stopped on the way
from the West by the closing in of th
ice, and many millions of bushels of
grain are thereby kept from the market.
Some of the vessels have been damaged
and portions of the cargoes lost. On
the lakes, too, some losses have occur
red. It is a fact worthy of note that
on the other side of tha Atlantic the
winter has set in still earlier than hare,
and with greater severity. There is
every reason to anticipate a more than'
usually severe season, and whatever pan
WASHINUTOX.
Wisbinutox, December 9. No reply
has been received to the letter of the
forty-five Representative Senators to
Secretary Fish entaeating him to remain
in the cabinet. The Senators who did
not sign this document apeak of it as
undignified and unprecedented. They
say that as Senators are judges of the
fitness of appointees to public offices, it
is peculiarly improper for tbem to ex
press opinions in this way on the pro
priety of rumored changes. To request
an officer to remain in his place is, in
their opinion, only little less objectiona
ble than to advise him to resign. One
Senator, when asked to sign the letter,
said that the President had not asked
his advice on any subject of late, and he
did not propose to volunteer it upon
question of whom be had better have in
his cabinet. '
Delegate Hooper, of Utah, will leave
Washington this evening for home, and
will be absent about three weeks. While
at Salt Lake City he hopes to arrange a
plan for the admission of Utah, which
will settle the question of polygamy,
and be satisfactory to the Mormons and"
Congress. 11 is plan is to have Utah ad
mitted as a State during this winter,
on condition that no more polygamous:
marriages should be contracted, but that
no families already thua formed shall be
disturbed. Hooper has presented his
plan to many of the leading Senators
and Representatives, and all admit that
it is, all things considered, the most
practicable that baa yet been proposed.
Hooper feels sanguine of being able to
induce bis people to agree to it.

Nothing could be clearer, under a
fair and legal construction of tbe sec
tion. Yesterday Mr. Droesher, registrar
of the Fifth wJrd, sat in his office, pon
dering over the election, when a lady
entered, accompanied by several well
known gentlemen, and asked for the
" Registrar of the Fifth ward." Mr.
Droesher, with the politeness for which
he is noted, asked what he could do for
the fair inquirer. When be discovered
that registration papers were wanted, he
looked blank, bis mind vibrating be
tween the questions of gallantry and
law. Before be could answer, the above
section of the City Charter was placed
before him. He read and pondered for
a few seconds. Reaching for his regis
tration book he turned to No. 355 and
wrote down the name of Mrs. Elizabeth
Avery Meriwether as a legal voter of i
the Fifth ward.
There are hundreds of ladies in tbia
city who own real estate, and who (under
thia fair construction of the Charter) are
entitled tor vote. Will the judgea of the
election refuae to receive the votea of
ladies who have registration papers?
Tbe Supreme Court has settled this
question. The registrar is the judge of
the qualification of voters,' and the
Judges of election can only inquire as to
the identity of the party, and whether or
not the voter has been a citizen of the
ward for thirty days prior to the day of
election. " .."..

Philadelphia, December 9. -In ac
cordance with the instructions of Judge
Paxton, investigations have been made
into the affairs of the City Treasury.
Official report says that alt business of
the City Treasury ia suspended, no per
son being authorized to receive or pay
any money after such suspension. Large
sums have accumulated in the hands of
the chiefs of the various departments
greatly in excess of the money for which
bonds have beea entered into by said
departments. Such facts have been pre
sented tbt the Grand Inquest are of
opinion that those whose duty it is to
provide for tbe management of tbe City
Treasury and the safety of the city
funds hsve been derelict in tbelr duty.
For aucb mismanagement, whereby the
aity ride have been endangered, oiti
zena subjected to inconvenience and

Judge Faxtfln is considering what action

-i It ia not generally known that the cel
ebrated society of the Christian Broth
ers has established in our city a college
for the education of young men and
boys. The location ia admirable, being
in tbe central portion of tbe city, at 282
Adams street, in the building known as
the " Memphis Female College," which
has been purchased by the Brothera and
fitted up in a atyle befitting an Institu
tion of learning. The school waa open
ed on the 20th of November last, and
already a number of students are in at
tendance.
, THE COURSE OF 1KITBCCTION
comprises all the branches of a classical
and commercial education, and, in addi
tion, music, drawing and modern lan
guages are taught by competent profes
sors.
The prospectus of tbe college presents
the greatest inducements to parents or
guardians to place their children or
wards beneath the parental care of the
Brothers, whose system of teaching and
government has been ao successful at
their numerous colleges throughout Eu
rope and America. The terms are most
liberal, so much so that that it places
an education within reach of all. The
faculty consist of Brother Maurelian,
president, and a number of learned
professora, who have made the teaching
of youth the great atody of their lives.
In addition to their regular college stu
dents who reside at the institution, the
Brothers receive day scholars for either
the preparatory class or the collegiate
and commercial courses, for which the
most reasonable charges are made.
Devoted to education, the Christian
Brothera have not forgotten those of our
youth who are engaged in business and
the various pursuits of life during the
day and for these
A HIOHT SCHOOL
has beea established, tbe hours of which
are from seven to nine o'clock each eve
ning. At this night school the youth of
our city who are engaged in daily labor
can acquire a thorough commercial or
classical education for a most reasonable
sum of money. At present the Brothers
are able to receive about thirty boarders,
and any number of day scholars. The
professors from their long experience in
teaching know exactly what ia necessary
for the young men of our country and
what is absolutely necessary to acquire
a refined and eminently liberal educa
tion. From a glance t tbe prospectus
the various branches of knowledge
taught withia tbe halls of tbia institu
tution will become apparent The sys
tem of classifying studies has been
adopted with a view to enable tbe stu
dents to pursue either a preparatory,
commercial or collegiate education, and
the quality and amount of study era-
braced in either of these three depart
ment are assorted and proportioned ac
cording to the strength and reach of the
pupil's intellect-

eoarses euaraoe all thoie branches
deemed indispensable in the practical
avocations of life, while the scientific and
literary course pursued in the collegiate
department is intended to fit young men
fur tbe after saeoauTul study of the
learned professions. Jn (his department
are taught the $rek sod Lara classics,
English literature and philosophy, the
different branches of natural history,
pure and mixed mathematias, metaphy
sics, logic, the philosophy of history and
literature and modern languages. With
this diversity of studies, the faculty and
professor are eorrect in believing that
they afford every inducement to parents
and guardians to patronize their institu
tion, and it has become needless to send
the youth o oar ci;y and surrounding
country to institutions of learning in
other States when they can remain at
heme and secure tbe same educational
dvaniaies. We advise tho? interested
in the education of 'youth to visit the
Christian brothers College, or send for
the prospectus of the institution.
ANOTHER MUBDER. 1
A Negro Mhoola a Colored Brother
and Kaeapea
Yesterday Nelson Cole, son of a negro
preacher, waa hunting out on the line of
the Charleaton railroad with a friend,
when they met Sam Jonea. After some
words with reference to the shooting of
Cole by Jonea aorae weeks since, the
matter was apparently settled. Cole
gave his shot-gun to Jones, who immedi
ately leveled his pistol and fired. Tho
load ntered the head of the victim,
and death ensued immediately. Cole's
friend ran away and was fired at b;J.
Jones, but without effect. Last evening
Esquire Elliott held an inquest on the
body and the above facts were elicited
Jones has not been arrested, but the
officers are on bis track and feel con
dent of bis speedy capture.
PRELIMINARY EXAMINATION.
Sam Jones surrendered himself be
fore Esquire Elliott this afternnon, and
a warrant waa at once sworn out, charg
ing Jones and John Williams with tbe
murder of Nelson Cole. The testimony
introduced changes materially the facts
set forth above. Oile of the witnesses
testified that he. Nelson Cole, and two
others went out hunting and passed by
the place where Sam Jones and John
Williams were chopping wood. When
within a few feet of the wood-choppers,
Jones nnd Williams ran to a stump and
got their six-shooters. Cole fired at
Williams with the shot gun, Williama re
turned the fire with hia pistol. Cole ran
behind a tree and shot again at Wil
liams, who returned the fire and ran iu
on Cole, saying: "I've got you now,
Sam Jones then ran up to Cole, and
said: " Give me your gun and I will not
shoot you." Cole gave up tbe gun, and
as Jones took it with one hand be shot
him through the bead with his piatol. It
aeeined to have been a general fight.
