The case of the young man who hired a hone
in Palcrson on Easter Monday to drive four
miles to Little Falls, but drove ten or twelve
miles further to the great Injury of the animal,
has attracted considerable attention on account
of the supposed novelty of the decision that this
was an unlawful conversion of the horse to the
hirer's own use. This is said to be a new doc
trine in the Courts of New Jersey, but it has
been distinctly asserted In at least one Instance
within our knowledge, by the Supreme Judicial
Cort of McmachmotH. In 137-3 tliit trio lml
decided (Perham vs. Coney, 117 Mass. Kep.,102)
that a person hiring a horse to go to a place
agreed upon, but driving him beyond it, was
guilty of conversion, and was liable for any sub
sequent diminution In the value of the animal,
even though It proceeded from some Infirmity
of the horse himself. It would be well for peo
ple who hire horses to keep these decisions In

If there lias been more nightly lawlessness on
the streets than ever before during former ad
ministrutions, the police force ought not to bo
blamed for it. Heretofore the Chief of Police
has had authority to call cut the police force
whenever it was necessary to maintain peace
and order, and when this was done the officers
were paid for their services. Now we have
new order of things. The Chief lias been in
formed by the President of the Council that no
pay will be allowed for night service unless the
officers are specially ordered on duty by th
President, the result is that when a row oc
curs at night while the President Is asleep, the
police are at home in bed and the Chief has no
author! ty to call them out. If they stay u
half Ihe night of their own accord to preserve
ijuiet the town authorities will not pay them

A SKETCH OF OltANOEVILLE.
It Is quite possible that some of the many
readers of the Columbian, have 'never visited
the beautiful village of Orangeville. In the
romantic situation that it occupies at the south
western termination of Knob Mountain, some
miles distant from the nearest railroad depot, it
is not on the route usually taken by the men i f
business ; and the tourist searching for pleasure
naturally selects those resorts, which the fash
ion of the day and the vote of the multitude,
made popular. But although comparatively mi
known, this little village, nestling among the
hills, is a delightlul resting place for any one
desiring a rjuiet and retired life for a few weeks,
after the hard work of a busy year.
The scenery along the Fishlngcreek valley is
fine ; and the smooth well kept roads present
unusual attractions lo those fond of drives, while
for miles around glens anil woods afford plenty
of scope to the active pedestrian. The inhabi
tants of this cozy retreat are characterized for
their genial, social hoi-pitalily, to which they
unite a spirit of enterprising industry, which
dospite the hard times manifests itself in var
Improvements arc being made, which, when
finished, will add much lo the appearanco of
the town as well as to the comfort of the citizens.

All trustworthy hyglenisls and luedicul au
thorities are unanimous in r.rommtiiding fruits
and vegetables as the best and appropriate food
for th's season, and that the laling of iiiiirh
meat, rich gravies, Ac, are carefully In beab-
slained from , And yet llieie is not one ierMu
in ten who carefully and intelligently follows
this advice. In the holds ami boarding houi.es
people gorge themselves wilh meats, gravies
and putry, and wonder how it is possible, after
such a strengthening meal, thai ihey feel so
weak and shaky and out of soru! Wilh nothing
but good bread and butler and a saucer of fruit
for dinner tie next day, the same pcr.nn would
have marvelled sllll more how in the world
such a slim meal gave him such strength and
elasticity of spirits and improved health) Im
pend upon It, a very large proportion of the
physical ills of life comes from too much eating,
there is a little danger of not eating enough.
The trouble wilh nine-tenths of ailing and
chronically complaining cily people Is .injudic
ious and Intemperate eating. Leave of) eating
so much meat and greasy compounds and rich
pastry, aud try a simpler diet for a time, and
our word for it, you will soon experience a
great and marvelous change that will comeovtr

charities, public and private, and by an easy
going popular sentiment, that pardons orcon-
doucs crimes aud offences, and pushes the
criminal along from district to district to prey
on succeeding communities seriatim. As
late as 1 819, in England, there were 223 of
fences punished by death. Tho question Pro
fessor Brewer a.ks is, have wo not gone to the
opposite extreme in a mawkish sentiment nnd
a weak nbusoof the pardoning power, which
perpetuates tho evil-disposed aud tho vaga
bond to tho third aud fourth generation? The
vigorous exortion of the old, vindictive laws
kept down the evil growth by capital exctu
tions, but tho spirit of these laws mado crimi
uals almost as Pu-t by its inquisitions and
multiplication of capital offences.
There is ono family that points a moral un
der American law. What is known as tho
Jukes family has been traced on tho criminal
records for ono hundred and fifty years. If
tho original pair of ancestors had met their
deserts then, cither in punithmeiUor in bring
reclaimed from autriim, tho two methods
of escapo wo should not havo had then eight
hundred' and thirty descendants in a direct
liuu of thieves, bad women, muiderers, sui
cides, and ruffians of all grades. Reports of
fatato charities and 'prison records show the
descent of crimes from geuoration to genera
tion, so that in weakly pardoning tho crimi
nal and suffering him to rear up children like
unto lumselt, society fosters for itself tho
growth of tramps nnd scoundrels that aro bo
giuuiug to show themselves as witnesses to the
mistaken benevolence of ono or another pat
tern in charities or in law. Tho remedies for
tho present tramp, tho outlaw, for whom child
hood has no sanctity, hospitality no safeguards,
and property no rights, the dealings with him
should bo short, sharp, and decisive. Aeainst
tho spread and growth of his kind, society
must look to its protection for the future.
Evidently it does not do to catch him and
feed lutn m county prisons, houses of correo
lion and poor houses, over the winter, and lot
him go in tho spring to repeat a former ca
reer. Even tho woik that ho is enforced Jo
uo in tne snort interval Is ot little value, be
cause of its short apprenticeship and its irren-
ular performance. There should bo no short
terms nor light sentences for the recognized
titiu. ii ta uu ucuuumy jor any uuytjiowc
ship or Stato to pass him along to its neigh
bor when all tho citios and counties and
States are doing tho samo thing.
The last year's report of Dr. Moyt, Secre
tary of tho New Yolk State Board of Chari
ties has a hearing on this aubject. Uo visjt
cd sixty-four poor houses in the Stato, con
taining ueraly 13,000 publio paupers. Loss
than ouu-fourth of this vast number were of

vestigated tho pauperism extended to the
third generation on the father's sido, in uino-ty-two
cases oil tho mother's sido to the third
generation 307 had pauper fathers; 12C1
had pauper mothers, und so on. "Wherever,"
says Professor Brewer, this line- of investiga
tion is pursued wo havo tho samo evidence of
u tribe well established amoug us, and perpetu
