Our patrons will notice-by reference
to heads of first and second pages
hereafter, that Mr. Huoii LINDSAY will
be associated with us in the publishing

We have published the Globe twenty
one years, and we feel that it is our
duty at our ago to impose upon a
worthy young man a part of the care
and responsibilities necessary to con
duct successfully a public, independent,
loyal journal. The political character
of the Globe will at all times speak for
itself. ff wo fail to please politicians
and mere party Mon, it will be because
we may not, be able to think as they
do, or will not agree to hide the ras
calities or short comings of politicians
and party organizations. Ho is only
a freeman who will speak his honest
convictions and oppose corruption and
other wrongs inflicted upon parties
We hope to deserve and receive the
support of an honost and independent
people. All parties have suffered
most from a hasty willingness on the
part of the party press to endorse the
action of leaders. Had the Democrat
ic press made public their honest sen
timent when the South rebelled, party
leaders would have changed their
course, and the old organization would
to-day be respected. If the Republi
can press continue to endorse or wink
at the propositions of the extreme
Radicals, the day will soon come when
the party will also be in the minority
in most of the States in the Union.
Legislators Picking the Pockets of
The members of the House of Rep
resentatives of this State, on Friday
last, voted themselves a salary of
thirteen hundred and fifty dollars for
the present session of an hundred days.
When the members were before the
people for nomination and election,
they agreed to accept the honor at
the salary of ono thousand dollars, the
amount agreed upon by a previou s
legislature. Because the members
have the power to raise their own
wages, it does not follow that the act
is any more honest than picking the
pockets of the tax-payers without
their consent. We hope the Governor

The New License Law.
The new License Law which we
published last week has very little in
it, which will commend itself to the
temperance men of the Stale, or at
least to those who desire to see the
evils of intemperance abolished to a
greater extent. The first section is the
same ill FilbAaliCO as the original law;
so it leaves it optional with the tem
perance men to take advantage of it or
not, just: as before. The trouble still
exists to ascertain which houses are ne
cessary for the accommodation of the
public and entertainment of strangers
and travelers, and which are not. The
new tavern-keeper alleges, with rea
son, that, lie has as much right to sell
liquor as his predecessor, providing ho
has the requisite number of beds, etc;
and if temperance men should remon
strate against him, lie would offer this
plea; and, as has been the case in our
own Court, lie would have hisiicense
Temperance men dread to 'encoun
ter the odium of the tavern keeper,
when they remonstrate against him in
particular, and do not against the oth
ers. For this reason the advocates of
temperance have refused to remon
strate in this and other localities, and
the number of tavern keepers Las in
creased rather than diminished. Wo
think this difficulty could be obviated
by limiting the number of licensed ho
tels in any place to the proportion of
inhabitants or itinerant travel: One
thing is certain—so long as hotels ex
ist in a place, just so long will thoy ap
ply for a license to sell liquor, no mat
ter how many there may be, or no
matter how many may be added. This
will be the ease so long as the number
is unlimited as it is at present, or un
til a prohibitory law is passed.
The second section of the law, which
applies to eating houses, is a little bet
tor than it was before. The change
consists in having the keepers of the
same to make application for license
in like manner as keepers of hotels,
with the exception that it is not re
quired that they should have the beds
and bed-rooms; also that County Trea
surers do not grant their license. The
same regulation in regard to limitation
of the number, which we made above,
would apply to them. It is equally
certain that if ono man gots a license,
another will want one also. But if the
number in the town is restricted by
legislative enactment, then applicants
can have no reason to expect a grant
ing of their license; and thus the com
munity would be saved from an accu
mulation of these houses.
Some may allege that there will be
very little good accomplished by this
system which we propose. It is true
that it would do little in lessening
the chances for men to get liquor, who
will have it if they ran, but it would
prevent others from following the
business who otherwise would ; and
would, as we have said, prevent an ac
cumulation of the same in the locality.

The Cattle Epidemic in New Jersey.
The farmers and owners of cattle in
New Jersey have recently been seri
ously alarmed at the simultan MINS ap
pearance in various parts of the State
of a new disease among their horses
and mules. The disease has, in a few
cases which have up to the present,
time occurred, invariably proved fatal,
and although the symptoms are not in
all instances identical, they are suffi
ciently alike in their general character
to warrant the belief that they are the
beginning of an epidemic, which may
possibly create as much loss among the
cattle of this section of the country as
the well known ninderpest has already
caused in Europe. It is admitted by
all the past year, and more especially
the extraordinary winter which is now
closing, has been extremely unfavora
ble to the health of either man or
beast, and there is a reasonable basis
for the fear that the unusual physical
conditions under which we have been
placed, may have produced effects
which, although they have hitherto re
mained dormant, may shortly become
only too clearly apparent. For sonic
time complaints have been made in
nearly every county in the State of
New Jersey, to the, effect that an unu

EDITORS.--lienjamin Franklin has
the credit of saying that "the best edi
tor is scissors; ,, by which he probably
meant that the editor who recognizes
the fact of there being in the world
many good writers beside himself, and
avails himself of the good things they
have written, will make the most in
teresting and acceptable newspaper.
Men who know most about making
newspapers do not estimate au editor's
labors by the number of columns he
writes, but by the general complete
ness and finish of his paper . as a whole.
The following paragraph, written by
an Englishman of largo experience,
contains the gist of the whole matter:
A good editor, or competent news
paper conductor, is like a general or a
poet—born, not made. .Exercise and
experience give facility, but the quail
tiemion is inmate, or it is needy mani
fested. On the ].tendon daily papers
all the great historians, novelists,poets,
essayists and writers of travels have
been tried, and nearly every one has
failed. A good editor seldom writes
much for his paper; he roads, judges,
selects, dictates, alters and combines;
and, after doing all well, he has but
little time for composition. To write
for a paper is one thing—to edit a pa
per is another.
