A Buz has been. introduced into the
Legislature to provide that no person

this proposition are—lst, that in many ,
cases lunatics are so wild i and. dark:
gerous as to render their prompt confine
ment necessary to ihe due protection of ,
members of their families and of the corn-,

judge from the fact that the government
of the United States costs annually sixty
eight millions of dollars more than the

putation proceeds upon the basis' that
the expenses of the State governments
here baltuice the enmities of the Colonial
governments there. But this is not a
complete statement. "Popular electionsin
this country cost the people nearly if not
quite as much as the whole direct cost of

THE. OUTGOING CITY OFFICERS
IIoN, JamEs BLACSUORE, Mayor of
this city, will surrender' his chair this day
to his successor, Mr. Bnusit. The re
tiring Mayor was elected to office on a
ticket placed in opposition to ,the regular
Republican nominees, two yt,".ars ago, re
ceiving a majority of votes which devel
oped the large measure of esteem in
which,be was held by his fellow citizens.
Daring his administration there were times
when we felt it to be our duty as public
journalists to reflect severely, and yet in
a kindly spirit, upon his manner of pre
serving the peace and executing the laws
of the city. His magisterial term ran
through a very exciting political cam
paign, and one which_would have aeri
ously taxed the energies and its of c
the sternest character to afford a sat tl
isfactory administration. However, with- t ,
out apologizing for any reflections hitherto
made in these columns, we feel that it is n
incumbent on us to pay the outgoing ' n
Mayor the compliment of having, as a
general thing, aimed to fully and impar
tially discharge' his official duties. We
helie he was ever animated by a desire
to dq!tho best he could and that the errors
of his administration arose from a want 1
of firmness of purpose and of executive
ability. With private character as high ,•
and purO in the' estimation of the public
as whenle entered into duty, he retires,
carrying with, him the respect and good
wishes for his future welfare of all daises
of the community.
The outgoing- Controller, TstomAs
fintan, Esq., acquitted himself in office
in a manlier highly creditable to hluiself,
ozd'advantageOns to the city. He brought
with, him' Into the
,ardipus position a
thorough knowledgeof municipal affairs,'

HOW THE CASE sTANDs.
As the two, Houses of the General
Assembly organized at Harrisburg , upon
the opening the session, a clear saving
was effected, in contingent_expenses, as
compared with the session of the year
before, of $60,041. In other words, the
cost of the officers and servants of the.
two bodies-was': reduced more than one
half. Afterwards the -House appointed
twentpieven idditionalplacemen, 'neon
triventionof the existing law, and upon
the plea that each House has ct constitu
tional right to determine how many officers
or servantsit will have., to fix the compen
sations, and to designate the men It
understood that Mi. Iswix, the State,
recOgnize these tiddl
'7.toreriaasll4rnr'orn' ,rattei:ullegaarly appointed. It may
be this Is -not so. If he , ,does so refuse,
and continue so to • do, their'cases
nftct •o : FirGAZETT:(;
limier may not be covered by the'
priation bill. But, if all Of .the
be paid the saving in the coating
pease% this year, will be $49,•
nearly half of the whole sum' ex'
last year. -
No*, we do ( • not believe the
needs the additional twenty-seven
has appointed to positions. The e
meat of them has been, and will co
to be, made the subject of dame'
the whole, however, the present
tare must be credited with large re
meats. Nor can we , perceive any
either of justice or policy why it
be assailed by Republican newne
-by auy others. / 1
:.The last i Legis attire iim ine usably
etravagant,, a s been demo strated
over and over ti in. Precisely ho the
fault should rest upon has not en dis
covered, even b those itvho hay taken
most pains; an it may lbe doub if the
real facts will w be l rade to , appear.
But a strong su pidon ervades e pub
lie mind that c rtaini ) geatlemen ho have
made most con pica us attemp on tech
nical groundEi,' to vindicate th Inselves
from blame,, an to assume the a titude of
injured innoceits, are more culp ble than
any other persona. They used , their op
portunity with extraordinary vefiemence,
which was,,of itself, a bad sign; but they
did nothing that averted from themselves
'the popular censure.
lii view of what has thus been said, we
must insist upon the observance of a just
and necessary distinction. The present
Legislature is not open to sharp rebuke
for extravagance. We think the House
could dispense with the additional ser
vants it has created, and without dis Co
mfort to the members or prejudice to the
public service; but even with this increase
the expenses will. be largely reducedi so
as to be within reasonable limits.
Doubtless a more rigid economy could
be enforced, and in several ways. Mem
bers could do their own . pasting and
folding; could sweep out and dust the
chambers; could keep the rotunda clean;
could use tallow candles instead of gas;
and in other shinier ways eau/4 make
savings for the benefit off. the Treitsury.
But, we do not believe the people wish to
subject their representatives to degrada
tions, or ' that the representatives would
be subjected thereto if their constituents
desired they should. Cdtalnly, v;%! should
honor the representatives for initintaining
personal and official dignity by refusing.
One other point. We believe in inde
pendent journalism. Nothing, is more
despicable than an editor who feels bound
to justify at all hazards, the doctrines and
pr4tices either of a party in polities or a
sect in religion. Newspapers'are a power
in 141 nations juSt in proportion as they
are free; for freedom of the press makes
irre -istible appeals to men who have tal
ent , acquirements, sentiments and per
pos -s of high order, to enter upon the
edi orial function, not simply with a
viewt l to the Obtainment of a livelihood,
but with the further object of influenc
ing the deVelopment of opinion, and
;o contributing essentially to national
iro ress. Year by year in this coun
ry through the operation of these
Ises, journalism has I advanced, until
e is no other power at all comparable
, ar be it from, us to affirm that jour
ism uj has yet reached its fullness and
n turity, or that all journalists are (fuel
fi d for the positions. The facts are oth.
t er ise, and this explains why it.happens
th t some editors are now striking wildly
a the matter of legislative extravagance.
S. false conception of what gennednde

lent sensations, mislead their judgments. I
Through exaggerations and mis-state

members now see it. The allegations and
proof of fraud in the conditions prece
dent, on the part of Georgia, affect alike
the representation in either body:'!The

disclisslOn which his clearly. iothified 4ttr
wisest feiendsi that a lhoroughly radical
and uncompromising irlicy, Is alone ad
xedssa ble, in perfeating reconstruction.
We trust that this policy is about to be
adopted and adhere& to 'without flinch
ing. As often as it has been disregarded
in the three years past, just as often , has
the neglect been followed by most injuri
ous results. Every one admits that there
would have been no difficulties in the
situation, had Congress , in 1865 come
squarely up to the work which, hi 1867,
its policy approached hy slow and timor
ous steps. In '66, our" duty was as plain,
and the opposition, whether from the
rebels; or from the 'Federal Executive, as
well defined and menacing as ini6B. Yet
we hesitated. Let us be grateful that the
cause—for which Loyalty bad. made such
sacrifices—was not then forever lost. _
So, when a clear and comprehensive
plan of reconstruction had been at last
attained, we submitted it to the people,
-whose approval , was given to it,. last No
vember, in the most decisive expression.
Again the South accepted the decision,
and submissively awaited the action with
which it was agreed on all sides that Con
great; must supplement and perfect the
details of that plan. The misohiefs in
Louisiana should have been redressed by
a sweeping Judgment from the Federal
power; the defiance of Georgia should
have 'been crushed in a sharp definition of
her exact provisiOnal status; the local au
thorities, in office under our plan of re
construction ; in all those States, should
have been unhesitatingly reinforced
arid encothaged to the mainte
nance of law and order, with the
moral support of the Congressional sym
pathy, promptly expressed and in a way
not to bo misunderstood. All these
things might, and should, have been done
at this session before the holidays. We
should have heard no more of Su-Slux
ism; Arkansas would have been tranquil
ized without the actual use of the militia;
Tennessee would be quiet today, with.
out summoning her loyal citizens to
arms; in every reconstructed StOth of the
Smith, the Federal power, directly or in
directly displayed, would be respected ,
and the local governments, which owe
their existence to the Federal approval,
would meet the entire acquiescence of the
But because Congress temporized and
hesitated, disloyalty Las everywhere re
vived its opposition. This ( is certain to
be checked, by the tardy actibu r to which
Congress now approaches, . but 'that does
not excuse the omissions or delays of
duty, which are responsible for the revival
of that opposition.
It is not enough to ask for a policy thr,
is upon its face radical and uufiinching.
Let us stick to this policy faithfully and
with energetic promptitude. It should
be vindicated in Louisiana and Georgia;
it should be consistently and firmly main
tained in Virginia; it should be fully
upheld in Tennessee and the. Carolinas.
Only, in this way, are the new State gov
eruments or the South to be gdaranteed
more than a mere ephemeral existence.
For if Congress shall, by its fatal inde
cision, betray those principles which the
National voice has emphatically endorsed,
all the results of the past three years will
be practically undone.
The second a nnual report of the Petro
leum business of the. Pennsylvania Oi
regions was published in the Titusville•
Herald of the 30th ult. It carefully re
views the history of the discovery
of oil in 1859, and the progress
of development up to the close
of 1865. At the opening of last
year two very important producing dis
tricts were discovered, but the production
was by notmeans so large as was antici
paled, owing to the short period the wells
held out. The following table, prepared
with considerable care, shows the growth
of the Petroleum trade since the date
of the boring of the first artesian Well to'
obtain a supply : • • • •

"WHAT MAY BE."
' When, a few days since, the GAZETTE
invited its readers to consider the not im
probable results, to flow from the recent
national,verdict in behalf of Liberty and
Equality, we directed especial attention s
to the effect of that decision in confirming
the desire of contiguous nationalities to
exchange their own nominal btrt :unprof
itable independence for the vastly higher
privileges of American citizenship, as
this new 'stands illustrated before all the
world. In particular we alluded to the
great likelihood of an early movement, 1 1
on the part of0:114is people of the
West India Islands, for their. own
abarption in the Great' Republic. We
also took the occasion i to cixpress . our
earnest conviction that, when the imples
ofayti, or St. Domingo, or of the Span
ish islands, should apply for admission
r, i i
our U nion—without other terms or
con Worts than that their complete ab
so Lion should complete their citizen
shi —it would be found difficult to deny
the r petition. Herein, our opinions, like
ou anticipations, were based, not upon
any private information as 4- s
of the new, Administration, fer we haie
no knowledge from that source, but upon
the plainest perception of the logical re
sults of our recent elections upon public
opinion at home and abroad.
--That our judgment as to these results
Was sound, is clearly enough shown by
the present ' advicas from Washington.
The proper Committeo submits to the
