The ineaslon of democratic principles into the
effete and aristocratic Institutions of the old
European sovereignties, though gradual; has
been 'sufficiently apparent. Steam, after all, is a
great revolutionary agent. It enables American
citizens to run from New York to Liverpool
in ten or twelve days—to fly along the 200
miles to London in five hours—to rush from
London to Paris between breakfast at 0, and
dinner at 7 o'clock—to traverse Europe with
equal rapidity, and every whore to exhibit the
go-ahead action of free and independent men,
who choose their Chief Magistrate from among
themselves, and acknowledge only ono su
preme majesty all over their groat land, name
ly the Majesty of the Constitution, protected
by the Law.
Now and then, (and the instances are not
so rare as to bo wondered at), we find the
American free-and-easy manner of speaking
Of public men and public things, followed by
British politicians. There was a time when
it would have boon a sort of petty treason
against the dignity of Parliament for one
Member of the House of Commons to speak
his mind about and against another—and he a
Cabinet Minister. Had he dose so, the cry of
" Fair Play" would have been raised, and con
ventional people, turning up the whites of
their virtuous eyes, would have said "How
dreadful ! to attack a man behind his back,
when you might have met him face to face
on the floor of the House of Commons, and
received a reply within flve minutes after you
made the attack." True enough; but a thing
of this sort is not fair play. Sir ROBERT PEHL,
for example, at a public dinner in his own bo
rough, at Tamwortb, has been freely comment
ing upon the conduct or misconduct, the cha
racter or want of character, of that jauntiest of
As there were newspaper reporters to take
down his speech, it really was delivered to the
Tatuworth voters, but generally to the world,
and particularly to PALMERSTON himself. Not
a tithe of such a speech would lie have been
allowed to utter in Parliament. Before he had
reached the terminus of his sixth sentence,
he would either have been coughed down
by some of the Ministerial myrmidons, or
have-had his words drowned in cries of
" Order, order" from some of the ancient fat
headed legislators who, themselves unable to
utter two consecutive sentences clearly
thought and intelligibly expressed, have a
cruel 'delight in watching for holes in other
persons' coats, in order to enlarge them. The
House of Commons, assuredly, in the t ime of
PREL 1173tc,1 Pansmawrox, the Ortinfflf would
have been non-suited. In tte Court of Com
men Sense, the result woind have been, and Is,
wholly different. Seated on the Trenaury
benches, with his Working majority to cheer
him through, Peanuerwee would have pooh
poohed PEEL. At Ta.mworth, where Pram is
paramount, the result would he otherwise.
Some of our modem maybe curious to know
what manner of man this Sir ROBERT PEEL
may be. Ho is the eldest son of the late Sir
Itcperm the man who granted Catholic Eman
eipaelon and Free Trade—wholly against his
' , Wit. He is now about thirty-flue years old,,had some experience, in the diplomatic
line, from 1844 to 1850, when he succeeded
to his father's title and vast wealth. At the
same time, he was elected M. P. for Tam

He is a smart, clever, garrulous young man,
utterly fearless, and so uncertain a politician
that, however he may speak on a subject, no
one is sure of him until he votes. Eccentric,
dashing, and hasty, the general impression is
that ho has got what the Scotch call " a boo In
his bonnet." At all events, be is odd, clever,
and capricious.
Some cause, never ascertained by the public,
induced ParmEasrox, nearly three years ago,
to make this young man a junior Lord of the
Admiralty—his principal qualification for such
a place probably was the fact of having nar
rowly escaped shipwreck in the Gulf of Spoz•
zia, a short time previous. As a member of the
Administration, ho was muzzled, to a certain
extent, and committed no oratorical escapade,
for some time. Last year, being a man of
vast wealth, able to spare the expense, ho was
sent to Moscow as secretary of Lord GRAN
viitm's special mission to attend the corona
tion of the Czar. Me spent his money freely,
but, some time after his return, being called
upon to speak at a public dinner, astonished
his auditors by giving a ludicrous account of
hie adventures in Russia, ridiculed the Prince
nx LIONE, laughed at Admiral Name,
accused the Count DE Moßxr of being a
swindling speculator on the Bourse at Paris,
and wound up by plainly intimating that Rus
sia, where he had to •pay $1,500 for ono
dinner for himself and two servants, was an
extended den of robbery.
Of course, such declarations as these, pub
lished not only in England, but all over Eu-
rope, created a groat sensation. They led, wo
believe, to Sir ROBERT'S resignation of office,
On the principle of a well-bred dog voluntarily

It may be presumed that Sir ROBERT PEEL
has some cause for dissatisfaction with Lord
PAIABRSTON. If so, ho works It out thus,
Ho commented in a facetious speech, sur
charged with bile, upon PALmEnsrox's political
short-comings. First, as respects the revolt
in India, which the Administration, for a long
time, instated was only "one of the periodical
emirates which occasionally excite, the people
of India." Now, said PEEL, this so-called
mints that had taken place had shaken the
Anglo-Indian empire from ono and to the
other, and in throe months it coat the lives of
more ofticors than perished during a similar
period in the hardest months of the Crimean
war. No loss than two hundred and seventy
officers bed either been massacred or had died,
or had fallen in the field—two hundred and
seventy in throe months. That was certainly
a greater proportionate lose than during the
severest trials in the Crimea. After the mid
denness of the blow, the Government resolved
to send 40,000 armed men to India, and never
in the history of the world did any country
send 40,000 men and maintain them ten thou
sand miles away from her shores. But hero,
adds Pen, comes blame to the Government.
ct They sent these troops by way of the Cape,
and surely every one knew who had common
sense that the best route to take would have
been across Egypt. They had the means, and
yet they did not adopt it." A few battalions
went from England to Calcutta, via Malta and
Egypt, in seven weeks; the time occupied by
the passage round the Cape of Good Hope
would bo 130 for sailing vessels, and 75 to 85
days for steamers. None of the troops thus
sent round had reached in time to share in the
assault on Delhi or the relief of Lucknow.
This is a strong complaint. More followed.
Peer, declared that Lord PALMERSTON was
humbugging the people—that the corporation
of London was composed of a set of fawning
sycophants—that the Duke of Cambridge had
not earned the honors that have been heaped
upon him—and that the speeches delivered
during the recess have, for the most port, been
slavish and slavering effusions on the Prime
Minister. On one of these speeches, PEEL
delivered the following amusing comment:
"Another gentleman addressed his constituents
at a county meeting. Ho is a very warm suppor
ter of the Government, and he
_said he , was not a
friend of Lord Palmerston's oik but h'e was then.
Be said, 'Lord Palmerston, lemon, is ono of
the greatest men in England ; be gets up at six
every morning, and writes till twelve—(ail this
was In the papers)—l know it, he said; oh, I know
it. Ile goes out shooting—more of scums for sm.
else than amusement, know It; and while shoot
log he receives the Government despatches, takes
off his hat, steps aside, and writes the answers
while Polite is reeking up partridges. (Loud laugh-
ter.) He writes till twelve at night, Ana then,Aeas
to bed.' " ( Applause) ,
Further, PEE; said that it was PAisiit-

pointed, and that, therefore, he had probed'

at signal given, by no matter whom, and against
no matter what, rushes into the streets, intoxicates
itself with powder and blood, and stops only when
every thing is overthrown, pavements, positions,
and power," Therefore, ho adds, "it has become
a question of the greatest Importance to ascertain
how long the worthy people of the o tpital, the in.
habitants of the provinces, and the Elates of Eu

Of course, then, this same Paris is the centre, the
cradle, of continuous plots and oonspiraoles—boot

restoration of "the Empire."

not exactly symmetrical, and that within that lit

on hearing him make a speech onoo, said to a com

And I am of the workingman's opinion : N. Louis

shake of the hand for both. The tactics of this lit

declaring, in effect, that because he indulged in
some of the exoeSses which youth, Motion, and
wealth exposed him to, he is not, in middle age, a

it would be entertained by that comervalare
body." The proposition I allude to is con
tained in the following passages of your report
of the proceedings.
"Mr. E. M. Davis said, ho did not believe that
the old system could bo patched up so that it
would work. • • • • Among the first
things we should do would be something like
this, although ho did not expect much support
in a conservative body like this. Abolish the
usury laws,' • • charter no new banks
—reeharter no old ones; • • • allow all
banking of discount and deposit to be as free
as any other ordinary trading by individuals
or combined efforts as partners." This, I re
peat, was the only common-senso proposition
made at the meeting referred to, and there is
much in it. There is no earthly reason why
credit, in the shape of notes, drafts, bills of ex
change, should not, like everything else, be
bought and sold at its fair market value, and it
is so bought and sold every day in spite of the
usury laws. Tho only practical effect of which
is, to put the parties to an additional charge of
a quarter of one per cent. for the employment
of a broker, in order to evade them, and giving
to a certain class, some of them unscrupulous
and without souls, the entire monopoly of the
‘, street "—excluding from competition with
them another class of men with large means,
who will not, from conscientious motives, evade
the law.
A repeal of the usury laws would doubtless
greatly extend and increase private banking
and bring out mein competition. It is notorious
that oven now, in spite of the monopolizing
features and special privileges of our chartered
banks, and without attempting to manufacture
currency, hosts of private bankers are spring
ing up in every direction ; nay, I have heard it
repeatedly asserted, that there is now more
straight-forward real legitimate banking busi
ness done In the streets of our principal cities
every day, than there is in all the banks; and
how much snore dependable has it been
throughout the panic. It has saved thousands
from the inevitable ruin that would have befal
len them with no other dependence than on our
rotten and wretchedly managed incorporated
If the Board of Trade would seriously take
up Mr. Evans's proposition, digest and examine
it in nil its various points and bearings, they
might accomplish some good, but all their

Apeches. The number of savages killed was 40.
The depot of the expedition was established °alio
west bank of the Gila river, nearly west from the
"Adobe Wall," on the Rio Grande, and about
twelve miles northwest from the San Lucien
Springs. The northern column was -under com

under command of Colonel Miles. In the canon of

the 24th, name fresh upon the trails ascending a
slight elevation between two ridges. Indians and
sheep wore discovered in the canon, and the ap
proach of the troops was a complete surprise. Or,
seeing them they commenced flight. Permit was
made, and eight Indian men killed—among them
the celebrated chief, Outhillo Negro—end one
squaw accidentally. Five squaws and five chil
dren were captured.
On the 13th of June Colonel Miles's command
started to the Coyotero country. They marched
south and southwest from the depot. On the Ist
came to extensive ruins, supposed to be of Aztec
origin. There wore also evidences that the Coye
toren had farmed there in former years. The
ruins seemed to indicate that a population of 2,000
or 3,000 must at one time have resided there—
probably two hundred years heel' On the 24th
the spies discovered an Indian camp a short dis
tance ahead. Captain Ewell, with twenty infantry
and forty mounted dragoons, with all the officers
under his command, except Lieutenant Edson, en
deavored to surround the camp. The guidessod
spies captured a woman, but the command vise
discovered. In this march Captain Eweil'e com
pany suffered much, having to sustain Itself by
killing some of the Indian pontes they had cap
tured. On the 27th Captain Evroll's wing, In ad
vance, proceeded towards the Rio Gila—the Pueblo
spies in advance. About three o'clock of that day
the spies reported Indians about, and told Captain
Ewell to "goon with his people." They proceeded
but a short distance when they came upon the
Apache clamp.
The battle-field extended for a mile on both
sides of the Gila, and covered with a thick under
growth. The battle commenced at 43 o'clock, and
lasted till sundown. There were forty warriors
engaged in the conflict, two of whoa only are
blown to hare escaped. There were but twenty
four found dead on the field. Two women were
killed—one while fighting with a bow and arrow.
There were twenty-four women and children taken
The wounded of the troops were Lieutenants
Davis and Steen, and live or six of the soldiers and
one Pueblo Indian.

lion which has not been Ratified by the
This question is thus ably argued and con
clusively settled by the Chicago Times :
4 , In August, ISM, Congress passed an act to
enable the people of Wisconsin to form a Consti
tution and State Government, with a view to ad
mission into the Union. On the 16th of December,
in that year, a State Convention adopted a State
Constitution, and forwarded the document to Con
gress, asking for admission as a State. This Con
stitution was not xubinitteel to the people, and
though the slavery question was not mooted at all,
thorn were other domestic institutions' which the
people desired to form for themselves.
"The Territory was divided in opinion; the
Convention sought to block the business upon cer
tain local matters, just as the Kansas Convention
has done with respect to banks and railroads,
capital of the State, ko.
" Congress refused to force that Constitution on
the people, but by an not entitled an act for the,
admission of the State of Wisconsin into the
Union,' approved March 3, IW, by Mr Polk,
,‘ We give the preamble and first and fourth
amanita' of tho not:

"At tho election upon the ratification of this
Constitution (says the Ti»tts) the people turned
out and rejected the instrument. Ifere was a di
rect recognition by Congress of the right of the
people to vote for or against their Constitution;
it was a direct refusal by Congress to force upon
the people a Constitution which they had nut had
an opportunity of passing upon by a vote at the
polls. The question of elavery was not involved
in this Wisconsin case. But Congress thought
that no form of State flovernmont ought to bo he

Another Destructive Fire—,-Great Loss of

we recorded a succession of destructive Area whle
occurred in different parts of the city during Sun
day morning, the aggregate loss from which was
very considerable. The firemen were constantly
engaged in the discharge of their voluntary but
arduous duties from three o'clock In the morning
until daylight yesterday, and worked with a
hearty good will and energy that are deserving of
all commendation. '• Misfortunes never come
singly." The exemplification of this trite • adage
was certainly witnessed during Sunday and yes

on Sunday night a frame coal shed in the Nine.

was set on fire and destroyed, loss $6OO. An ad
joining brick dwelling, belonging to Mr. George
Hough, was damaged to the amount of $3OO. ha
insurance in either ease. As the companies
were returning from this fire, about one
o'clock yesterday morning, a fire was disco
vered in the extensive forwarding house of
Davis & Steel, formerly Bingham & Co., No. 810
Market street, above Eighth. The building ex
tended through from Market street to Grape, and
the fire, when discovered, was about midway of the
first floor. The flames ran with greet rapidity
through the forwarding house, and communicated
to a quantity of combustible goods stored in it.
Among these geode were seventy or eighty barrels
of whiskey, which, taking fire, burned with uncon
trollable fury. A general alarm was strnek upon
the State Mouse bell, and the firemen hastened to
the spot from all parts of the city, but they did. not
succeed in chocking the spread of the flames until
they bad extended to and destroyed other valuable
property. 'The members of the °erasable Engine
Company brought the first apparatus to the ground;
and rendered moat elliolent service.
Ire gave in yesterday's FRESS as full an ac
count of the progress of this fire as the lateness of
the hour would allow. The full details, es we
subsequently ascertained them ate es follows:
The burning depot was two stories high on Grape
street, and three stories on Market street, with
wide fronts upon • both streets. The entire first
floor was appropriated to the use of the forwarding
house, while on Market street, the upper denim
wore occupied by other parties. Benjamin Rogers,
steel plate printer, occupied the around story, and
11. Holler, career, occupied the third story. The
building, with all its contents, was entirely de
stroyed. Adjoining the depot on Market street, on
the eastward, was the large four-storied building,
occupied upon the first Boor by Mr. John P.
Sloan's clothing store, on the second floor by H.
L. Fryer, manufacturer of fringes, &a. and upon
the third end fourth Boors by Barrett e s binned
and bowling saloon and gymnasium. The Are
soon communicated to the upper part of this build
ing, and it WAS destroyed from the second story ap .
Mr. bloan's stock was got out with little or no I
damage, and Mr. Fryer's property, in the 'Mond
story, was mostly destroyed. Mr. Barrett saved
nothing from his apartments but a set of pistols.
Next. kelow this building is the large five.storted
structifre, owned by Mr. Cuthbert, and °deny/led I
by a number of tenants, which was slightly
damaged in the upper part. Some of the occu
pants sustained some little loss (tom water. Im
mediately wort of the freight depot is the Alle
gheny House, a large tire-storied buildino occu
pied as a_botel by Mr. C. I. Bush. This building
took fire in the rear, and It was only saved with
great difficulty. The window frames in the back
end of the building were mostly burned out.
There were about one hundred boarders in this
house, and the utmost consternation was caused
among them by the fire. Nearly everything
movable was carried out of the hetet, end the fur
niture, /to., was broken, and otherwise damaged.
Mr. Bush declares that many of the goals wore
The freight depot of Livingston & Co. is imme
diately west of the premises occupied by Davit &
Steel This establishment had an outlet on Market
street, under the Allegheny House. The goods in
tho depot of Livingston & Co. sustained some
damage from water, and their building was slight
ly burned.
Grape Court, small thoroughfare running north
from Grape *tree, contains a row of seven foursto
riod dwellings, which are thickly populated by
trror families. The rear of these dwelling* was
exposed to the full fury of the dames in Davis &
Steel's depot. The roofs took dre and were mostly
destroyed. The tenants removed their effects as
hastily as they could, and much distress was occa
sioned among them. , Twenty or thirty families
were thrown Into the street from these dwellings,
and all sustained more or less loss by the hasty re
moval of their goods.

The Allegheny Rouse is owned by Mr: John

his loss at five thousand dollars, All insured.
The houses on Grape court are owned by Mr.
Townsend Sharplese. The loss upon them is
covered by insurance. The aggregate amount of
the loss by the fire will probably reach 530.000 to
¢10,000; but any estimate at this time is necessa
rily conjectural. The origin of the fire is not
known. Messrs. Davis and Steel attributed it to
incendiarism; but the place appeared to be se
curely closed when the fire first made its appear
ance. Fire Detective Blackburn was very
promptly at the scene of the fire, and made a
thorough examination of the premises, with a
view to ascertain the origin of the fire. The
firemen worked manfully for several hours, and
streams of water were thrown upon the smoulde
ring rains of the depot daring the entire forenoon
of yesterday. We regret to state that two of the
Fourteouth ward policemen rendered themselves
very obnoxious to numerous firemen and eitisene
by their overbearing and insolent conduct. In
one case they arrested a young man at the corner
of Eighth and Market streets, on a false charge of
drunken and disorderly conduct, and took him to
Spring Garden Hall, probably with a view of col
lecting half of the Imposed fine to divide between
them. They Mated en excuse for their conduct,
that they were ordered to make the arrest by the
Chief Engineer of the Fire Department. Tbat
official, Mr. 8. P. Fearen, emphatically denies the
truth of this statement. The officers of the Sixth
Police District, under sergean ts smith and Thomas,
preserved the best possible order in the vicinity
of the fire, and wore instrumental in saving some
errprop y
Pilfering was extensively carried on at the fire.
Three fellows wore seen in the street in the not of
dividing the contents of a pocket-book among
themselves. They were arrested and taken to the
lock-up. The pocket-book proved to belong to a
boarder at the Allegheny House. The offenders
gave the names of Michael Rey, Arthur Henry,
and Daniel Henry. They were committed by Al
derman Eneu to answer.
The Girard College.—Ono of the greatest
boasts of our city is the number of its institutions
of learning, and foremost among these may be
ranked the Girard College. It cannot be doubted
that the yearly and continued diffusion, through
the various occupations of trade and mechanical
pursuits, of youthltrained in this institution In
moral and industrial habits, end possessing tho ac
quirements derived from a careful, practical edu
cation, must exerolso a sensible and valuable in
fluence, enlarging itself more and more widely
from year teyear.
It may, indeed, be regarded as a peculiar ad
vantage of this institution, that the details of ar
rangements may be modified and improved by the
lights of experience. While the comprehensive
mind and clear intelligence of Stephen Girard es
tablished the general plan with perfect precision:
while he has so marked the outlines of his system
of enlightened benevolence as to prevent either
misunderstanding or deviation ; he had yet left to
those to whom he has entrusted its practical
management and supervision, the opportunity, as
indeed be has imposed upon them the duty, of ac
commodating its subordinate provisions to such
changes as may take place, front time to time, in
the number of the peptise, in the enlarged means
of maintaining and instructing them, in the in
clinations which they may severally exhibit, in
the varying habits of trade anti industrial ocoupa
tions. and in the modifications that science and
improvement :hay make In the different classes of
pursuits into which he designs that the objecta of
his bounty shall to fitted to enter
A number of needed improvements have recent.
ly been made in the main^lego building. A
solid partition wall has bet, —acted across one of
the largo rooms on the first floor—that situated at
the northwest angle of the main edifice. By this
it is divided into two commodious apartments,
each twenty-five feet in width by fifty feel in
length, affording space amply sufficient, In one.
for the instruction of the pupils of the Principal
Department in Natural Philosophy, and in the
other, for the Chemical Lectures. As these studies
have been hitherto conducted in the neatens out
building, this change has the additional advan
tage of removing an inconventenoe, by no means
inconsiderable, which has been beretoftwo occa
sioned by the distant separation of particular
dames, at certain hours, from the places in which
their other studies are conducted
A similar alteration has been made in the two
largo northern rooms on the second floor. By this,
they are now divided into four apartments, each et
which is also twenty-five feet in width by fir:greet
i n length, thus conveniently extending the present
accommodations for instruction in the primary de
partments, and also increasing its efficiency. which
has been heretofore, in some degree, impaired by
the necessity of placing together, in the same room,
so large a number of the younger pupils, and, in
some instances, more than a single instructor.
In making these neeessary changes in the main
edifice, the occasion has been taken to endeavor to
obviate the serious defects, in heating and ventila
ting the apartmente, which have at times led to
apPrehensions that the health of the pupils might
be impaired. The walla and ceilings of massive
masonry, and the marble floors, have occasioned at
times a condensation of moisture, and produced a
chilliness of ntmosphoro against which it has been
impossible, by any precautions, always to guard.
Alterations hove therefore boon made in the posi
tion and construction of a portion of the furnaces.
Some of the flues have been so enlarged as to form
a wide shaft, into which a heated pipe has been
introduced. so as to rarify the air, and cause its
rapid change and ascent. Connections with this
have been arranged in some of the lower rooms,
and the walls have been covered with thicker
hangings and the floors with matting. The
four large and beautiful rooms, en the third
story, have been heretofore almost useless, from
the want of any external opening which might
counteract heat arising in summer from their
proximity to the roof. It has been found quite
practicable to open a communication from them
with the Ventilating shaft, and this has been done
experimentally in one of them, and changes }are
been made in the construction of the doors, which
will themes the admission and circulation of
