Liatnoiio Keviow. It must be confessed that whether sat isfactory or not to his interlocutor, the response of tho "good father" was emi nently withm the line of safe prece dents not very likely to give unneces sary offense; but as the reply to a serious question, standing alone, it can hardly be looked upon as possessing the clearness desirable in the teachings of a spiritual director. In short, it is slightly Jesuit ical a thing which, taking its author into consideration, is not perhaps to be won dered at The old gentleman was a friend of the family, and knew that the young lady had set her heart iiDon the onera: - A. I 1 and what could he do? The notions of the venerable ecclesi astic if we are to judge by the context when they aro found are evidently in tended to mean, that what is good for one may be bad for another an indul gence which, with this man or woman, would be a sin, might, with another, be blameless or even praiseworthy; that' it is not tho nature of the act, but the charac ter of the person that makes the differ ence between right and wrong, guilt and holiness. There is reason to fear that this is not a very safe doctrine to carry into general practice. In its application it has been productive of results some times funny, sometimes perplexing, and sometimes melancholy. When men or women arrive at that condition of sanc tity that they are no longer able to com mit sin that whatever they do is, in con sideration of their holiness, right expe rience has shown that they are very apt to do things that are, to sny the least, un seemly in appearance, and not a little likely to create disturbance in families and society. In a religious point of view, to go to the opera is wrong, or it is not, and that without respect of persons. If it is right for one to go, it is equally so for another, and if a true sense of duty to God re quires of me to stay away, the same rule is of obligation upon all The world even the religious world has, at least in the abstract, given its assent to the doctrine that amusoments are lawful: leaving the question what, or how far they -are so, to be settled by individual practice or opin ion. The rigidly righteous admits the prinoiple, but taboos, in detail, every ex isting mode of recreation; while the ir religious and perverse, caring little about the principle, consult their tastes in re spect to the kind, or go indiscriminately to all There are none that are admitted on all sides to be holy. Modes of amuso- .nient rise to suit prevailing demands, gr,owing out of the spirit and tastes of the peop le, and unless they are employed as lur.es to the indulgence of some spe cial vice,' are all nearly alike in point of morality. There is a practice which originated in the Eastern cities, that has beon pretty successfully employed to give a sort of divine character to places of public amusement, and smooth the way to their portals for people whose consciences are inclined to be unnecessarily skittish. In several instances the halls of theaters and opera-houses are opened on Sunday even ings to popular clergymen, who discourse of righteousness, temperance and judg ment to come, to congregations of the pious, and thus exorcise and drive away sending them, perhaps, to the old limbo, the Bed b'ea all those spirits of wicked ness which have been hitherto wont to harbor in such retreats, aad imparting a savor of devotion that, doubtless, extends to the secular performances. It is not necessary to speak in commendation of this custom or otherwise. Whatover be comes fashionable at the East usually travels in this direction; and it is not im possible that, before long, wo may find it naturalized among us. Perhaps the most humiliating feature of tho developments growing out of the Treasury defalcation is the exhibition (hat is made of the venality and unfaith fulness of the party press. To this ma chine upon whose power, usefulness, and value as an "educator of the people" stump orators and editorial conventions are so prone to enlarge appears to havo been consigned the meanest of the dirty work : that of turning the puflio eye in some other direction while , the stealing was going on. That the managers of the Statesman, during the administration of BnESLiN,wore under his control to the ex tent to give to events preoisely what aspect he desired, is apparent; and that they were under pay so to do is not a matter of doubt Is an investigation into the state of the Treasury proposed, the Statesman head it at onee, and denounces it as an act party maliVnity : is a bill introduced the Legislature to give greater security the koeping of the public finances, the Statesman discovers that it is a personal insult leveled at the Treasurer. Mess ures which under the rulo of one party it advocates, under that of another it op poses ; and, with a singleness of purpose that can not be mistaken, its eye is perpet ually upon the contents of tho Treasury, and its heart upon the ways and means to transfer as much of them as possible to its own coffers. These are practices which ought to and, indeed, do Klostroy the influence of party journalism. Strictly speaking, the party press has no influence. Palpably unjust and one-sidedit can not obtain the confidence of the intelligent portion of the community, without which it is impotent at tho very point whore strength is desirable. LAW REPORT. SUPERIOR COURT. THF OT 1st" pbovkhknts or Real Estate. J. P. Atwater, execu tor, vs. L. H. Clayst .no and others. An Important question, involving the rights of tenants or lessees to remove a structure erected on real estate on the ex- piimiunui nieir term, was ueiore Judge Spencer in this case.

He took possession and erected a two-story brick house, hlch was let luto the ground, end averred to be affixed thereto. Afterward he sold his Interest to vmymutie lor nitnin n year or so rroni ho date of the lease, the life estate determ ined bV the death Of one of the devlae. in l....- .!.. a month thereafter, Claystoue threatened to remove me uiumiiiK, claiming ii to oe ins under bis pur- cliaso. Tim nlnintitl' ins evpentopi lnimUl u strain him, averring that the removal of lliebuildiug . r"""e wiiiiitiKu iu urn premises, it did not appear In the petition whether the defendant had given up pussessiou of the premises or not, nor Judge Speucer held that the rlcrht of the lnn.nl . remove did not depend on the reservation n,u.ie i the lense of such a right. He could take no greater estate than the devisees had, and such a clause, there fire, was of no further concern than as II evidenced I a l " l"e iewee in tne erection of tho building. The case should, then, be considered lrr. spect ve of any contract for removal. Thcquestion -if i ' , ueiieimeu on ine intention with Inch the structure was rut up w hether with a view "' " permanent appropriation totne usesnfthesoil, or whether as n temporary appropriation for the ten ant own use, and w ith it design to its removal. In uuieiuwiiuiK wieo questions various circuniKtances neie iu ue couMucrcii, as tne cliaracter ol the build lug, its mono of annexiitlon. and tl,e ,,.n. n ...i.t..i. applied. These, however, furnished only evidence of ... iu uouuii ii enscs ine inierenco was In luvor of the tenant: mid it might, therefore, lie laid dow n as n general rule, that the right nf removal ex isted whether iu regard to structures made for the purpose of trade or otherw ise, the distinction in such cases sougnt to be applied at common law not being applicable in tlii country. " hatever the intention might be, however, on the part ol the tenant, it could not bo regarded unless the removal could be muilo without injury to the ostntc; mother words, the rights of tho landlord must be. respected, and if the improvements could not be re moved without injury to tho premises the right did not exist. In this case it was averred that irreparable damago JV.Ii ocf,u(10"e1 by tho removal, and therefore ......iiiira ue presumed mat rue llUll'llllg Was erected with a view to removal. As to the right to remove after tho term expired, that question depended on the fact of an abandon mentthat is where a tenant left the promises with out removing his improvements; and if affixed to the soil it is presumed in law thnt he yielded them to the landlord, or originally erected them for his benefit. Mich presumption did not, however, exist, especially Iu cases of uncertain terms, so long as t lie tenant re mained in possession.

Herman Wernslnger, for disorderly eon duot calling officer Beresford hard names, eto. was relieved of $10 and costs. A bibtbkssing accident occurred yesterday morning, on the Lower River Road, near In dustry, by which a man by the name of John Ehrinan, a Gorman, was nearly killed. Ehr man was riding a fractious horse, when the animal took fright and run off, throwing the rider upon the ground with Buch violence as to break bis right leg aud fracture bis right shoulder; and he was otherwise so severely bruised that the probabilities of bis reoovery arc extremely doubtful.

A Hard Case. A few weeks sinco, J. R, Haynes, jeweler, 40 West Fourth streot, was burnt out his loss exoeeding two thousand dollars. The insurance he had effected on his stock and fixtures was onlv $500. The Insurance Company has boen forward, and with great magnanimity (?) proposed to pay to Mr. Haynes one million one hundred and fifty dollars Itm the aforuatd million I A max named Wm. Bigler was dreadfully beaten and cut last night, about nine o'olook, in a disroputable house on Race-street, be twocn tho Canal and Twelfth stroot. The as sailant, one John Kelly, who it is supposed used iron knucklos in the fight, wag arrested and locked up in the Ninth-streot Station house, to undergo a hearing this morning. Ths watchmon of the Seventh Ward, late last night, discovered a man floundering in the canal above the Twolfth-streot bridge. He was fished out and taken to tho Ninth-street Station-house, whore he "dried up." It ap pears that be was drunk, and foil from the bank into the raging water. Spring Business and Advertising. Now, says a cotemporary, that the business has com menced, it Is the time to advertise in the news papers. Those of our merchants who neglect to do this are most surely the losers, no matter how muoh business they may now be doing. Even if they are well satisfied with their pros pects, as man ever is, they will ovontually lose ground if they do not advertise. Others, not to well satisfied those who havo a business to build up seize upon the columns of the news papers, and tell the wholo world.of buyers that thoy, too, have goods to sell at talking prices. The oustomers, too, have begun to think that those who advertise can sell the cheapest that they are "livo traders," and if they do nothing more the first time, they will at least examine the goods offered before buying elsewhere. Thus those who do not advertise what they are doing and what they can do, gradually lose their oustom, to the gain of the mors enter prising in the same line of business. But every body doet advertise, in a greater or leas degree, in some shape or other by cards, by circulars, by drumming, by sign boards, by a handsome display of goods in their windows, or in some way. They must take some method to tell people what they have to sell. But thoy take a deal of pains, and go to great expense, and do every thing and any thing to Increase the number of their ousto mers; but the very way which it easiest, most direct, most effectual, and altogether the cheap est, vis., by telling their story in the columns of a widely circulated newspaper. Is it not soT Think for one moment of tho vast influenoe of the daily press remember that if you wish to carry forward any great project, to build a railroad, get up an opera-house oompany and a hotel, start a bank or insuranoe office, then the first man you run to is the editor of the daily newspaper. Tou wish to tell the publio of your project, and at onoe the editor ii the man to do it for you. This is advertising. It is not always paid for, but it is a short out to the accomplishment of the object in view. , Very well, from all this the conclusion is In evitable that publicity is the only means by whioh one who has goods to sell can find customers for them. If it is good to tell a hundred per sons that you can give them good bargains, it is much better to tell a thousand, and so on to the end of the chapter. The newspaper is the means to be nsed for that purpose. It goes cvery-whore, and tells your story to thousands at tho samo moment. . It is to the businessman better than capital, for It brings him oustomors, which capital will not do. It is in roality the "poor man's capital," and when coupled with enterprise and activity, honesty and determin ation, is better than gold for a foundation. When nil are eombined there is no such result as fail. We know vory well that It is the habit of some to undervalue advertising. Articles like this are too often set down as but the arguments of an interested party, and are passed over without thought This is not, however, always the case. There are those who study every means to give publicity to their business; and mark ths statement they will always be found among the most enterprising and successful of our business men. One word of advice in con clusionif you have goods to sell, tell of it. Tbe question is oftea asked why some men succeed In business better than others of about the same means? ' The cause of their success is, they advertise; and tbe place to eontraot for advertisements, if you wish them in the lead ing papers, and thoso that will do you tbe most good in this aid adjoining States, Is the Gen eral Newspaper Agency office, south-east cor ner of Main and Columbia streets. Ton will find tbe agent, 8. H. Pasvis, posted up in these matters. . River Intelligence. Ths River ha risen about three feet since eur ilast hsue, and Is still rising rapidly.
