SAT UK PA V, MAY 4, 1SS. THE COMPOSITION OF JURIES. Whether tho average, sober citizen feels much interest iu tho way in which juries aro selected, or tho kind of material of which thoy are com posed, except just when his own interest or convenience luay chanco to bo affected thereby, is question able. At any rate ho ought to, on tho ground of self interest no less than of duty. No man knows how soon his own concern in tho matter may bo direct and vital. Tho most peaceable and inoffensive cannot be sura of any immunity from the agressions of others of a diilerent disposition. Tho most scrupulously honest may lind it necessary to de fend themselves from tho overreach ing schemes of their neighbors. The most virtuous and orderly may find themselves, through tho machina tions of tho evil disposed, or by means of sotno fortuitous combina tion of untoward circumstatictv, accused of grave offenses against the law. In one way or another, the property, the liberty, oreven the life of any one among us may be,soouer or later, at tho mercy of twelve men taken from the body of citizens to judgo his case. Wo have no desire or intention of disparaging tho general character of juries in this country, or the intelli gence and conscientiousness with which they perform their duties. Wo do not consider that tho facts justify any unfavorable criticisms of a wholesale and sweeping kind. At tho samo time it is no very rare t hing to liud on tho panel, the names of onoor more men of a kind that few people of intelligence and respecta bility would caro to have as arbiters of their business interests, their per sonal liberty, their reputation, or the honor of their families. Admitting these cases to be quite exceptional, it is nevertheless a per tinent question, need they happeu at all, and if thoy cannot bo alto gether avoided, whether it is neces sary or fairly excusable that they should happen as often as they do? Considering what human nature is. even when acting under tho respon sibilities of official station, it is too much, perhaps, to expect or ask that errors, even seemingly glaring ones, should not occasionally be made. But tho second part of tho above interrogatory, wo have no hesitation in answering promptly in the nega tive. Within tho last few terms of j tho Supremo Court in this district, ; too many men have been put on the ! jury list, who, everybody knows, never ;ht to have boon there, and j who new r would have been there if j proper c .re and discretion had boon 1 exercisca it: selecting the names. j Wo aro by no moans ignorant of, ! or indifferent to the practical difll- ! c ul ties in tho way of securing en- j tirely satisfactory juries. We have I given such considerations all duo j weight. If tho peculiarities of our i social environment, tho size and j composition of tho community, and : other things of tho kind seem to j present special difficulties, they also ' furnish very important compensat- j ing advantages, and relieo us fron tho operation of some unfavorable conditions which exist in older and j more populous countries. SAN FRANCISCO LETTER. . I m&till.i, San Fraiic-ico, April IV r S. (From Our Special Correspondent.) Tlie Sugar Market. The interesting features last re ported may be hero repeated with this addition that the market has further advanced, 00 centrifugals being to day quoted in New York at 7.47 cents.

The cargo of f!ax was discharged and the .-teamer proceeded on her voyage at S p. m. tho same day. Tho Mariposa 'tis not injured by tho tiro. As sLo finally left Auckland two days bo i.ir.d her regular time, and may also call at Apia, it is quite possible that she will not arrive in Honolulu with her customary punctuality.

The most noteworthy legislative act of the Fiftieth Congress has been the passage of the act by which there will be an addition of four new stars to the national colors. The first session was made unusu ally interesting by the fact that a national election was near at hand and that the lines of both parties were closely drawn, with the leaders looking eagerly for every oppor tunity that might give them an ad vantage, however slight, in the ap proaching contest. Although the measure which caused the prolonga tion of tho first session to a time be yond all precedent failed of enact ment and resulted in nothing save a mighty torrent of debate, this Con gross nevertheless has achieved a considerable amount of work. More bills have been introduced and more enacted into laws than during auy other Congress. In the matter of vetoes, the heretofore unsurpassed record of the Forty-ninth Congress has been beaten, President Cleve land disapproving more bills during the last two years of his adminis tration than during the tirst two. He has vetoed directly 278 bills, 157 more than all his predecessors com bined, from Washington down, while a number of measures have been subjected to "pocket" vetoes. During the two sessions there had been introduced in the House 12,G59 bills, or 1400 more than in the pre ceding Congress, and 2G7 joint reso lutions, or live more than in the forty-ninth Congress. Committee reports have been made to the num ber of 4154. In the Senate 3998 bills and 144 joint resolutions have been introduced, against 3357 bills and 118 resolutions during the forty ninth Congress, which broke all previous records in this respect. There were 270G written reports made, or over 700 in excess of the preceding Congress. Of all these bills and joint resolutions 1791 be came laws, of which number 1190 originated in the House and G01 in the Senate. The President also sent veto messages in the cases of 99 House and 47 Senate bills, or 14 more than were made during the previous Congress. Thirty Acts which had passed Congress failed to become laws be cause the President did not sign them. The most prominent was one granting a ponsion to the widow of General Kilpatrick. The amount carried by the Gen eral Appropriation bills passed at last session of Congress is 281,879, 000, against 30G,98G,000 appropriat ed for tho current year. REMOVAL !
