PICTROUMI at Aittirerp,

TEXIIE can be no doubt that an organi
zation of citizens, calling itself a Vigi
lance Committee, exists in New York.
It is equally probable that this association
has been-formed for the express purpose
of securing the arrest and due punishment
of the villians who swarm in the Me
tropolis; and who control its elections, its
Courts and all its municipal authorities.
But as to the timber of citizens concern
ed In this movement, the , extent of their
organization, and the resolute determina
tion which governs their councils, the
public information is really vague.
Much has been said about this Vigilance
Committee, and little or nothing is really
known. If it exists, and is of the char
acter usually attributed to such irregalar
exponents of the public dissatisfaction,
its first public demonstration is likely to
be a decisive one.
TO•DAY we surrender much of our space
on the second and seventh pages to the
announcements of sales to be made by
Sheriff Sam= B. Curran . , at the Coqrt
House, by order of the District Co
on Monday morning, the 26th instant, at
ten o'Clock. Much very desirable real
'estate is included in the sale and capital
istdahould be in attendance. It will be
observed that an unusual amount of
property has fallen into the Sheriff's
hands, and consequently largely increased
the work of the office. Bat Mr. CLULEY
is possessed with rare business qualitieS
and liberal capacity, so that things go on
more smoothly than ever in his office,
notwithstanding the much heavier pres
sureof labor. Thd term for which he was
,elected is drawing to a close, and there
are few interested in the affairs of the
county but will regret that the law pie
vents him retaining longer a position•he
has so faithfulli and efficiently filled.
Some members of Congress are said to
believe that a project for annexation to
this Union has friends among influential
Canadians. Very likely ! Every one
knows that -some members of Congress
can be found to believe anything that
anybody chooses to assert. But it will be
a long time before oar Government will
receive authentic and responsible advises,
that such a project is favorably enter
tained in any Canadian quarter deserv
ing even a moment's consideration. If
the politicians and ;people of the Do
minion are pretty nearly unanimous in
sentiment, upon any one subject, it is in
the hearty accordwith which they dislike
their American neighbors. Even the
' Mexicans will forego their chronic love
for revolutions, and agree in an unani
mous pman to the * hated Gringos, before
the small:beer politicians who rule Can
ada will lay aside their natural prejudices
and consent to annexation to the Repub
lic. We shall never occupy and possess
the territory of British America, until we
conquer it with our embattled legions,
under General Mama, of the Chicago
Triune. Aid, then, after it has been
ravaged by hie warriors,the territory
will not be worth having.
.A PITTSBURGH TRIUMPH.
No argument his been more forcibly
used, or with more damaging effect against
tariff interests, than' that drawn from the
fact that America had to depend on Prus \
sia for a quality of steel sufficiently hard
and perfect to be used in the rolling of
silver and other obstinate and compact
metals. In the mints of the 'United
States the rollers used bore the imprint of
a foreign manufacturer, and that truth
had but to be cited to bring the blush to
our own steel workers, as frequent ever.
inmate had failed .to produce suitable
qualities of steel for the pprpose. How.
ever, Pittsburgh has achieved another
triumph, and has just furnished
the Philadelphia mint with a steel
roller, pronounced, after actual test
of several weeke, -to be superior to the Prussian impo tations. The dis
'covery of a process of hardening and
strengthening the of the roller, was
made at the Crescent Stfiel Works of
Mesars. Mmars, B4aa & Perutm,
after considerable experimenting„ and it
will be properly protected by patent in
due course of time. The firm are now
engaged in the. manufacture of another
roller for the same piece, for rolling
nickel, in which they encounter no diffi
culty, lavuig thoroughly mastered the
process of hardening steel to the required
point. This invention is , a most import-

action by which the House thug defer
the discharge of a pressing , duty to the
people of Mississippi, of the other States
yet unreconstructed, and of the Union at
large. It will gratify ;heir constituents to
know that Messrs. NEGLEY, PRIMPS and
DONLEY voted against this.delay, record
ing their names in a minority which corn-
Prised most of the wiser and more expe
rienced Republican Representatives. Ex
cluding Scurncir, Fsmisworrn and
GARFIELD, the Republican yeas were
made up from the Eastern States, and are
nearly all of members who have National
fame yet to achieve.
From this disposition of the Mississippi
case, we may conclude that the Rouse
also intends to do nothing at this session
with Texas, Virginia; or even Georgia.
We think this hi an nnfornmate decision
and that another course would have been
more welcome to a majority of the Re
publican Senators and to the country.
'lf the progreas of events, in the four States
particularly concerned, should be, during
the summer, in the direction of an In.
creasedtranquility, and a more demon
strative regaid for the Federal authority,
the present action of
,the House may find
its justification—and not otherwise.
THE PUBLIC DEBT.
The official Treasury statement for the
first of April shows the very large reduc
tion of $20,140,000 in pie total of net
indebtedness during the month of March.
The increase of debt bearing coin interest
is only some $16,000; that bearing cur
rency interest is reduced about $3,000,.
000; some $400,000 of the matured debt
has been paid off, and about $7,000,000
of the debt bearing no interest has been
discharged, this iteici being altogether in
gold-certificates, upon which thd • owners
have recalled their coin; There are about
$6,800,0000f the matured debt, which has'
been so matured for periods ranging from
six months pp to ala years; this sum is
mainly in compound interest and 7 3-10
notes, and is doubtless retained in the 1
place of greenbacks, by way of a reserve
i l'his, the first statement of Secretary
BOUTWELL, exhibits upon its face a fla
grant disregard of the red-tape precedents
thrashed by Mr. McCuLtoca. The
items of the interest-bearing debt are, for
the first time, all specified, with the date
of the authorizing act yin each case, the
rate of interest, the amount outstanding,
when redeemable, when the interest is
payable, and the amount accrued up 'to
the date of statement. Thus we see that
the three to five months interest'accruing
up to April Ist, amounts to some *38,-
000,000. The railroad bonds, now
amounting to over $56,000,000, are speci
fied- with equal particularity, thestate
ment showing the exact issue to each
company, the amount of interest paid for
their account, and the amount, nearly
$3,000,000 short, refunded in transporta
tion by the companies.
The country is thus indebted to the
Secretary for the first clear and satisfac
tory expose, in the way of a monthly
statement, which has yet been issued
from the Treasury. His complete re
moral of the cloak which has heretofore
covered the gold-transactions of the De-
penmen; will be especially acceptable to
THE NEW TENIIRE-OF-OFFICE
This bill repeals , the first and second
sections of the old • law. That first sec
tion authorized persons, appointed to
civil offices, With the advice and consent
of the Senate; to hold - such offices until
their successors should be in like manner
appointed and qualified. But the' Cabi
net officers were to hold their places din.-
.ing the ierm of the President appointing
them, and for a month thereafter, sub'.
jectto removal with the same advice and
consent. The second section, now re
pealed, authorized the President to, 'sus
pend for cause, during a recess, filling'
the(acancy with an ad interim appoint
ment, reporting the case, "with the evi
dence and reasons" for the suspension,
to the Senate within twenty days after its
meeting. lyith the concurrence of the
Senate, this suspension could be made an
absolute removal and a successor ap.
Pointed. The Senate non-concurring,
the 'suspended officer resumes his place
and salary. . •
For these two sections thus repealed,
the following are now substituted:
Sao. 1. That every person holding
any civil offioe to which he • has been. or
hereafter may • her ,appeinted by and
with the advice and consent of the Sen
ate, who shall have become duly quoit
to act therein; shall be entitled to hold
"inch 'office during the term for which he
shall have been appointed, unless sooner
removed by and with the advice and
consent of the Semite, or by the appoint
ment, with 'the like advice and • consent,
of a successor in his place, except as
herein othetwise proVided.
BIM 2. o.lnd be ftfaraer enacted, That
durin any reties. of the Senate the Pres
ident hereby is empowered in dis !
oretion to suspend any civil officer ap.
pointed by and with •the advice and
consent of the Senate, except Judges of
the United States Courts, ..until the end
of the next session of the Senate, and to
designate some suitable person, subject
to be removed in his discretion or by the
resignation of another, to perform the
duties of such suspended officer in the
meantime, and- such person so desig.
noted shall takethe oaths and give the
bonds required by low to he taken and
given by the rsuspended - officer, and
shall during the time he performs his
dudes, be entitled to the salary, and emol
uments of such officer, no part of which
shall belong to the - officer suspended;
and it shall be the duty of the President,
within thirty days after the commence
ment of every session of the Senate ex.
cept for any office which in his opinion
ought not to be tilled, to- nominate per ,
sons to fill all vacancies in office Winch
exist prior to the meeting of the Senate,
whether temporarily filled or not, and
so In:the place of all °Metals suspended;
and lithe Senate during such session shall
refuse to advise and consent to an ap
pointment in the place of such suspended
officer, then, and not otherwise, the Pres
ident shall nominate another person as
soon as practicable to the said session of
the Senate for said office.
The first section is a stronger vindica
tion of the joint prerogative of the Sen
ate than any part of the old law afforded.
But the exceptions are broadly stated and
mark the real distinctions between the old
law and the new. It is seen thit the
President is no longer required to report
"the evidence and' reasons" for either a
suspension or a removal. But no officer
can be removed without the adviii and
consent of the Senate, either for the re
moval itself or for the appointment of his
successor. During . a recess, the Presi
dent may not remove at all,- so as to de
prive the incumbent of the place and
emoluments up to the moment when the
Senate shall concur in the appointment of
his successor. But he may "suspend"
the officer until the end of the
next session of the Senate, award
ing the place and emoluments in the
meantime to another. In all such
cases of suspension and ad interim ap
pollitment, the . President must nominate
to the Senate within thirty days after its
next meeting, and if the Senate rejects
the ‘ domination, he must again, "as soon
as practicable," and to the same session,
designate "another person" for the office.
He cannot renominate 'an ad interim
nominee once rejected. And if he makes
no such other •nomination with the con
currence •of the Senate, the suspended
officer resumes his place at the end of that
Before any office-tenure law was
passed,such a resumption would have been
impossible. It was first enacted in the
law of March' '67, and its principle is
fully pieserved and maintained by this'
bill. In that principle, thus preserved,
is embodied practically the. most com
plete Senatorial participation in the pre
rogative of removal.
The points which have been really
gained in this matter are, Ist, the exemp
tion of the President and Senate froni
any necessity for the assignment or con:-
sideration of any "evidence and reasons"
for either form of removal, and, 2nd, the
final vindication of a policy which pope
latizes the vast prerogative of Executive
patronage—placing It upon that constitu
tional basis of Senatorial particrpation
which Is necessarilrimplled in the ex
pressly co-ordinate assent, to appoint
ments, and which Underlierjolntly and
equally every tfficial act, in the exercise
of that patronage, excepting alone the
privilege of selecting or designating the
nominee. That privilege under the Con

strychnine in a dog's stomach? But this
fab 3 ehood is intended to bull the 'market.
Our dog is not dead, and If the writer of
the /bat knew that Beiser_wanted to
buy him, his announcement of the de

was the recipient of a' benefit at the
Opera Howse last night, on which occa

a large, and appreciative one, and the en

character. At the matinee this after

be presented at the Ametican to-night.
Mr. Smythe is aliberal manager and fur

Tim J. RoLIT.AN voNcrERT.A. very fair
and highly appreciative audience attend
ed the perftmance by the Tyrolean
Singers, last evening. Their striking
national costumes, their clear, fresh and
natural voices, and the aimple, strange
and Charming turnips, won them at once
,the favor of our musio-loving people to
such a degree that every piece, except
thefirst and last, was heartily encored.
Particularly attractive was the singing
of the alto solist, and the perforfnance of
en andner on the zithera.
Th instrument was a novelty to many
of the hearers; its clear metalic wooing
tones "discoursed most excellent music,"
Onr impression is, that the Tyrolese will
have a still better house to-night. We
can properly advise those who .sirlsh to
hear music of a distincti character,
ferebt from that of which ve
we have abun
dance of opportunity to hear, to attend
the concert this evening, or the matinee
this afternoon. We feel sure they will
be well pleased. • •
