If the reporters, those two, or auy others, deserve reprimands from public officials for seeking news of public affairs, those reprimands should not be glveu in such a manner as to render the censure more objectionable to the public than the alleged fault, feel sure that public officiais, and private citizens, too, would fare better if they would give the Information the reporters seek sensibly, freely and fully, or if they feel compelled to decllué to give It, to de cline courteously. Commenting on the connection of Colonel Breckinridge with the Presby terian Church, and stating that, he was neither a member nor au elder of the Presbytcriau Church, the Philadelphia Press says: For ihe serious peril which to-day threatens practical Christianity does not spring from unbelief but from a failure to enforce high moral standards The early church won in its way because its members, with all their faults, were Immeasurably superior to the mural life about them The real euemies of the Cbristiau Church to-day are not those who attack its creed from without but those wltbiu its walls who brlug discredit on its moral staudards. There is uo other city iu the Uulon where that lessou can be learned so well as lu Philadelphia. The general thrift and the particular connection which a certain prominent cltir.su aud Harmon ien politician enjoyed with the Keystone Bank, the Bitrd»loy defalcations and the wrecking of the Reading railroad have made him an object lesson for precisely the homily the Press delivers. We ho a Tub chief cause of complaint against newspaper reporters is that they obtain information of the repiehenslble, often criminal, acts of men who wish to ap pear in the capacity of public bene factors. Men who have no doubt of tb* honesty of their motives aud of the wisdom of their acts do not have that ex tremo sensitivity against, publicity which atHicta a man who falls into a frenzy at the presence of a newspaper reporter. Mauy an upright citizen does what he thinks right, and minds his own business so strictly, that he doesn't care who kuows it. There are newspaper reporters, who, like any other men, have their faults, and, who, from lack of tact, chiefly, make them selves disagreeable to worthy citizens whose conduct is not liable to public censure; but for industry, Intelligence, honor and all of the characteristics which make a man a useful member of society, the average modern newspaper reporter Is t he peer of any m an. Reporters do more good, they save more reputa lions, they disaeminate more of the sweetness and light of modem cizillza tion than any other class of men. They write better argument than the lawyers »peak, they Bet a broken arm before the doctor gets there, they preach sweeter sermons than the pnlpit. The modern reporter Is the best engiue of modern civilization—he drives its wheels. Tbbrb are well-defined limits in the mind of every intelligent and respectable actor beyond which love-making scene» on tlie stage cannot go. The quality ot the love doss not alter the case. To go beyond the limits of good taste in pure love is ridiculous orsacriligloue ; to break beyond the limits or good morals in de pleting hi ot ic love is disgusting and harmful. In the play of "The Crust of Hociety" the crust is broken too often, Hiss Oils Is too realistic-, she displays too much. A love scene of the ten derest and swente+t omotious is, iu the nature ot the cate, private aud must uot he Impersonated too often or too freely on the stage for bar of losing its effect, of failing to have the ii.fiaenoe the authir and the actor in tend. It is true that even soliloquies may be used with wo.-.dcrful effect by tlie dramatist, but like the gods of Ike Greeks, they are not brought on thu stage unless there is something fora god to do Iu "Tho Crust of Society" there is uot enough plot and dialogue to redeem it from vulgarity. The dialogue is witty, eloquent, often beautiful ; thu plot is ingenious and the sitnatioua are interest ing and surprising by their cleverness. But withal, the play is not one which the Ameri an public can approve, much less admire, because it requires the actors to participate In »eenes which are uot within the limit« of good morals or refiued taste. The cruat that is broken and lifted reveals what public seutimeut rt quires should be hid den. _ . Commenting on the attitudes of the "conservatives" as they cail them« Ives with an assurants delightfully euphemiu tic, a correspondent of the New York rimes says: ''Senator Hill plants him ,, , ... f f«U t quare! y 0 u the Republican plat form of years age, aud deranuds that degree of protection that will neutralize the lower wages paid la foreign coantrits I had hardly got through noguizing ... , .

WASHINGTON, March 28.—The gallant old War vessel Kearsarge, which went nshore Roncador reef on Fell. 2, has been de stroyed. hot withstanding the heroic efforts llmt have been put, forth to save her. Tele grams conveying this information reached Secretary Herbert. One came from Mr. Alfred Wiusor of Boston, the president of Boston Towboat company, which con tracted to save the Kearsarge if possible and sent the Orion to Roncador reef wilh this object in view. It read as follows: "Orion arrived at Havana. Found Kearsarge burned nud broken up." The second dispatch was from Mr. F.W. Houghton, the superintendent of the Mari time Exchange of New Y'ork, as follows, "Steamer Orion, which sailed to assist the Kearsarge off Roncador, reports from Ha vana that ttie Kearsarge burned and is a total wreck." Official information regard I N> m rail '-or, TBK KEARSAROW. ing the burning of the vessel is lacking, and these two telegrams are till that has Iiecll received by Secretary Herbert con cerning the matter. The news of the destruction of tlie his toric old vessel was n subject of genuine regret on t lie part of those officials of the navy department who were apprised of the contents of the telegrams in the even ing. They had sincerely hoped that the efforts that had been undertaken to save her bull would be successful and that she would yet be serviceable as a training ship or couiil be set aside for exhibition as a relic. Kleyermnn Still on Trial. Tlie Kearaargo was wrecked on Ronca dor reef on Feb. 2. Admiral Stanton wns on the vessel, which was then the flagship of the North Atlantic squadron, and Com mander Oscar F. Heyermun was in com mand. The latter is now being tried by court martial in New York as a result of the wreck. The crew consisted of 200 wiil ors and marines, Tho nnvv department took prompt measures to save the officers and crew and chartered the City of Para for the purpose. All those on the vessel except One sailor were successfully taken off the reef and safely landed at New Y'ork. Measures were at once instituted to save the - rc< k of the gnllant old vessel. Congres» without delay authorized an expenditure of 845,000 to tie used for this purpose. Seeretary Herbert awarded the contract to the Huston Towboat, company, which dispatched a wrecking crew on their vessel Orion. The towboat company will secure some remuneration for the expense entaillai, but the limit was fixed by con gress within $10,000. The Kearsarge wns built at the Ports mouth navy yard, New Hampshire, in 1801, and she belonged to the same class of vessels as the Oneida, Tuscnrora and YVa chusett and was one of the old style wood en ships of tlie navy. In fuet, it has been rather in commemoration of lier past glory that »be has been kept in commission, it was on .1 une 10, 1 »1)4. that she fought and conquered the rebel ship Alabama. Blown Up by Natives, Boston, March 38.—A dispatch, dated Havana, to President YVinsorof the Boston Towboat company from the captain of the steamer Orion says that the United States steamer Kearsarge has been blown up and burned by the natives.
