ON SATURDAY night, June 4th,.1859,
a killing frost destroyed grotving crops to
tbe value of many millions of dollars
throughout all_ the region north of the
158th parallel of latitude. The rapidly
declining temperature on Saturday ? last
inspired.* general apprehension of a sim
ilar visitation now. Bat these fears have
not Men realized to any noticeable extent.
A light frost may have visited the higher
lauds remote from the water-courses, but
not, ive trust, such as to inflict any con
siderable inlnry.
"IN 'rim Legislative Convention the

been alleged."—Commer cial.
Could the audacity of falsehood go

that Mr. STEEL did suppress the resolu.

Tau Philadelphia Benevolent Savings
Bank, which was robbed of a million and
more in greenbacks and bonds, has just
been made glad, through a detective
agency, by the return of most of the mis
sing funds. No arrests are chronicled.
This case is fresh evidence of the impetus
given crime and protection afforded
rogues by the detective system. The
thieves were discovered, permitted to
keep a portion of the moneys and esc pe
prison, the detectives took another ee
of the recaptured plunder as their share,
and the bank, thankful to receive any
of the funds, was satisfied and asked no
questions. The detectives could not af
fordxto have the heavy operators confined
in prisons, as they reap too large divi
dends out of the jobs put up and consum
mated by them.
IT name that we were quite right n
anticipating that the work on the Porkers
burgh bridge would be pushed on, re
gardless of the late Ohio law , forbiddirg
its connection with the Ohio shore. The
claim of West Virginia to the sovereignsy
of the river, below low-water mark on e
Ohio aide, is not to be disputed, and is
now practically asserted in the prosecu
tionj of this work under her authorit y .
Even the abutment on the Oho
side may 'be built also, if its
foundations be laid just outside of
low water mark. And the friends of
an unobstructed navigation of the river
are at present wholly without any legal
protection against the invasion of their
rights. Let us look this matter fairly in
the face. Our only remedy is to be pm..
sued at Washington, and the B. & O.
corporation should be made to and r
stand that this remedy will be pursued to
the utmost—and with the determined n
to win and maintain our rights. To at
end, there shOuld be something done
sonably, and more effective than m
newspaper protestritions.
SO MIRY VERDICTS of acquittal ha l , e
been returned in homicide cases whereon
outraged husband had taken the life Of
the destroyer of his domestic happineeis,
that we do not marvel to hear of women',
who just now are busily engaged in ready
ing themselves'into full equals of the op
posite sex, asserting their rights in this
direction and protecting their hearthstones
from dishonor, using dull lead as a liana*
for all their conjugal troubles. In Maine,
last week, the jealous wife of a lawyer
met and shot three bullets into the body
of a frail milliner, who Juippened to sus
tain relations by no means honorable
with the avenging woman's husband.
The milliner will die, and Mrs. Emma,
the murderess,will set up the pledofjusti
fiable homicide, and her lawyers will cite
hundreds of precedents where men have
escaped punishment although guilty of
life-taking to protect their honor and to
avenge themselves on the seducers of
their wives. She will be acquitted; and,
what then? Why, all the women in the
land who are tinctured with jealousy will
become their own avengers, and go about
in search of the impediments to their do
mestic happiness. It is time that an ex
ample be made of some one of those who
tam upon themselves the responsibilityof
setting the laws of GOd and man
aside, and destroy' human life
in order to satisfy outraged honor.
Society is disorganized in this direction,
and unless there is a return to abandoned
law the conseqUences will be fearful. A
jury, on their oath?, acquitting a man or
woman who has shed blood in behalf of
wounded honor, not only outrage the sol
emn obligations resting upon them, but
make themselves accessories before the
act in many of the similar crimes which
follow.. Hanging is an adinirable anti
dote for most diseases, and just a little
administered to the high-strung heroes
and heroines who guard their honor by
sacrificing life, would have good effect on
the people, who are beginning to imagine
that for some crimes there can be no suf
ficient redress obtained, and that the law
justifies deeds of desperation: Let us
have. hanging. '

Of A. J.'s District Attorney. We /shall
complete - the record in due time, and out
of very "abundant materials."
\\ It is noteworthy that among the nn
*roue buildings, pubic and private ?
erected last yea-, and in progress the
present, an nnusnal.number are of the
more costly and substantial character,
and several of them very fine stone
structures, calculited to elevate the char
acter of the city for: architectural taste.
Any city might be proud of such build
ings as those of Messrs. A: H. Errimrsu
& CO., LLOTD and BrAcK, - and the Safe_
Deposit° Bank, in Fourth street; the Peo:
plea' Bank, and the' M.' & M. Insurance
Co., in Wood street.
The Young Men's Mercantile Library
Building is beginning to .reveal its ulti
mate design and beauty, in Penn street.
The City Hall gives promise of early de
velopment, in Smithfield street, and we
are to have noble specimens of the strict
ecclesiastical gothic style, in the new
Trinity Church and. Chapel on Sixth
avenue. Indeed, we observe new erect'
tions in progress in nearly every part of
both cities, and in the adjacent boroughs.
Further out, also, in the rural districts,
numerous Putnsions, more or less costly,.
an* ornate, are lifting their outlines into
view, in all directions over a landscape
more picturesque, diversified and beauti
ful, perhaps, than any city in the coup*
can bOast. Such improvements as we
refer to more particularly, denote the
great wealth of the community not
only, but a marked and praiseworthy ad
vance in the liberality, culture and taste
of our citizens.
The authority of Federal Military Com
missions, over such citizens of the unre
constructed States as are rot in the\ naval
or military service, is derived from the
statute of March 11,i 1847, and hasljuat
been folly sustained In an opinion from
the Attorney. General. The opinion has
a bearing of the most important breadth
upon the social . and' political status of
Virginia, Texas and Mississippi. The
record of the XLlst Congress shows it \ to
be equally applicablf to Georgia, since
there has been no recognition of any claim,
by the latter State, to be exempted from
the provisions of that act, through her
adoption of a constitution in, conformity
with its requirenients. As to the pre :
ceeding Congress, the Georgian claim,
conceded by the House, was never Per
fected by the assent of the Senate. It is
certain that the Administration, will here
after hold itself to be fully wa rranted .: in
maintaining an orderly and peaceful con
dition of [Ars in the three ' States:
nut yet organized, and it is ' quite
likely that the same Federal au
thority will, under this opinion, be ex
tended to Georgia also. This would sup.
ply what has been needed,—a legitimate
and effective curb to the turbulence of a
a still rebel population, which, hith
erto, has asserted its own exemption from
Federal interference, and its just con
tempt for its own contemptible Governor, .
linaLocx, under the quasi protection/of
one branch and the Inexplicable no-ac
tion of the other branch of the XLtli r
gram. We trust that the •Administra
will procee4 at once to take the Ge
case in hand, and deal with it as the
warrants, and as the interests of the
tional pacification demand.

The efforts of their sympathizing
friends in this country, to commit onr
Administration to the blunder which any
recognition of belligerent rights in the
rebels would involve, have, fortunat9y,
failed altogether. One policy prevails at
Washington, in our national dealings

Contrary to recent expectations, the
political canvass in Tennessee is to . 0-e
-sent a square issue upon the questionnf
restrictions upon the Suffrage. Colonel
&cams disappoints the general hope that
he would concur, with his competitor for
Republican support, in advocating the re
moval of these restrictions from the dis
franchised rebel voter. His speech at
Nashville, on Saturday evening, reveals
his,decision to maintain the field, in the
same positions to which the domes;tic
politics of Tennessee have heretofre
committed him. We regret that the
csreful deliberations, in which Colonel
STOKES and his friends have been en
gaged for the week past, have not re
sulted otherwise. We should have been
better pleased, had he and they conceded,
handsomely and fully, the just form, not
only of the late decision of the Supreme
Court of his State, but of advancing Oo
litical enlightenment among Republicans
everywhere, in accepting the broadest
idea of universal suffrage. It is evident,
however, that Colonel STORES regazids
his past.record on this question as dedis
ively controlling all present considers
dons of policy, and we are compelled to
admit that l ihe adheres to it with a consla,
ent fi delity which has, our . respect the
more cordially, since we feel that be most
agree with us in looking upqn this dechi
ion as fatal to the success of his canvass.
His competitor, Acting Governor itr-
TOR, advances alone to the higher pota
tion, and declares himself to be in fity l or
of the restoration of this franchise to eve
citizen of ITennessee., Thil will be t e
winning doctrine of the campaign, andlit
wiltwin under Republican auspices, since
Gof: Ssrnron is and has ever ,been
fuljy identified with this party . He Will
have a large Republican support, as w‘ll
as the votes of the Conservatives, f
whom it could hardly be expected that
they should hold aloof from a cause which
recognizei all their political rights. The
number of this class of voters is likely Ito
be still further augmented by an expec ted
decision by the Supreme Court, limiting
still more narrowly the application of the
existing provisions for disfranchisement.

"These I schools are not now used to
evangetizelyouth, but to demoralize and
iniidelize them. Tile principle underly
ing and running through the system IS a
studied ignoring of creed, that is, of re
vealed truth; Paganism, in other words,
utter want of faith, but a fair show of is
ternal morality—this is the finis ultimus
of the highly praised education to be
made national. Pretty much of the
same mind were. the Pagans In the early
days of the Church. A man would beat
liberty to Ladore. any one-of the. &bon
sande of gods, to belong to any system
of philosophy. to hold wlatioever epin
lone ho s pleesod o provided he wall n9slll
Christian. This is the true rendering of
the extraordinarily /there views of the
friends of Common School education. A
united country to rest upon a foundation
of irreligion, infidelity—and there are
ministers of the Gospel ready to make
that sacrifice!" •
So writes the editor of the Pittsburgh
Catholic, a journalist liberal in moat mat
ters, and by no means narrow-minded or
contracted in his general ideas. It is
singular and unfortunate that so many of
our Catholic friends permit - themselves to
be misled, and view the Common School
question from such a stand-point. No
other institution of our free government
is more perfect in. its workings, more to
be admired or more worthy of confidence
and support than the system in vogue for
free and universal education. Protes
tant, Catholic, Jew and Infidel can alike
enter the class room and receive liberal
learning and be made honorable
members of society. without their be
liefs or opinions being tampered
or interfered with by those imparting
knowledge. It is true, and we mention
it in tones — of thankfulness, that the prin
ciples underlying good citizenship are
taught, that strict honesty is inculcated,
that vice is held up to be detested and
avoided, and thatdeep down in the hearts
of scholars is planted the basis of all re
ligions, a belief in God, in His truths re
vealed and a knowledge of the grave re
sponsibilities of the individual to neigh
bors and society. It is not in the class
room, pondering over difficult problems
of Euclid or provoking sentences of
Greek or Latin; that the scholar derives
his religions hellef. It is not when
geography puziles or geometry. baffles
the powers of the brain that the pupil
forms his ideas of the important doctrine
of any one church, neither does he jump
to a. conclusion on hearing the Lord's
prayer recited differently from his own
version, or a salm sung or a selection
from a Protestant bible read. The relig
ioust education nd example must be sup
plied at home. .No where else can any
distinct faith and belief obtain strong hold.
A score of faiths or more may unprofita
bly be introdu c ed r to the school rooms
The scholars will ignore the tyranny of
study. By rotd they may recite all the
declarations of religion, all the tenets of
faith, but give them liberty and they will
declare their ;dependence and think
and believe they have a • mind
to . do. A familiarity with persons or
things is sure to breed contempt. Leta
youth be placed in a school where reli
is hab tually mixed with - his
thoughts, wh important doctrines are
daily forced u n him as a task to learn,
and how soon will human nature revolt?
He goes out in the world with his reli
gious belief, occupying no higher ground
than his knowledge of the abstruse
sciences. He has been taught to believe
so and so, but his ideas are met by those
differing in opinion with himself, and,
nine chances out of ten, he is so thor
oughly disgusted with the cramming
system to which he was a vic
tim at school, that he gives away
and deserts the Very faith which
carefully direcied human ° efforts had
endeavored to plant securely with
in his bosom. He is wrecked on the
first rock of opposition. On the ; other
hand, let the young be educated in reli
gions matters at home. Let them feel
that their fathers and mothers, who, in
their estimation lead the world in wisdom
and knowledge, attach themselves to a
certain belief, and they will accept their
doctrines as gospel and their minds will .
go with them in all things. Theirs will
De no intellectual religion. It will be
fresh and pare and of the heart. They
will believe in what they have drawn in
from their parents,; and in sunshine or
cloud their opinions will never giveaway.
The public schools as they exist are our
crowning blessings. Let them stand as
they have stood. Let no voice interfere
with the system. We are needful of such
members of society as they furnish, and
knowing that they do not inculcate infi
delity or immorality, but impart the wisest
truths, and principles of honestA fair
dealing and integrity, we can safely af
ford to champion them and fight the battle
in their behalf. • '

There seems to be a great desire to.
prevent the public knowing the exact
terms on which the Perry Fuller-Ewing
lobby suit has been compromised. Sev
eral of the newspaper correspondents_
have been solicited to say nothing on the
subject. The account of vouchers for
Indian goods sold by Mr. Fuller to the
First National Bank of Aarkansas was,
as stated yesterday, about eighty-two
thousand dollars. The amount demand
ed by General Thomas,Ewing in the
name, nominally,' of his rother Charles
and others, as so called partners, was
fifty-one thousand dollars. The contract,
of which the amount enjoined was part,
amounted originally to nearly a half
million dollars. Charles Ewing claimed_
partnership to the extent of one-third of
the amount sold by Mr. Fuller to. the
bank aforesaid. Ewing and another
party claimed nearly two-thirds. Alt
the developments had in court showed
that the claim was only a lobby one, in
which - , it is shrewdly guessed, the per
sons put forward were but lay figures,.
and Gen. Toni Ewing the party really
interested. While Perry Fuller was ab
sent the suit was pressed, when he arrived
the E wings were anxious for a compro
mise. They declared that fifty-one
thousand dollars was due them, yet they
took six thousand, thus giving seven
eights of their claim for Mr. Fuller's
silence, which, it would appear, they
have riot secured. -
Since the adjournment of Congress, the
President has removed. at least nine of
his own.sppointees, namely, two consuls,
one Indian agent, two collectors, one
assessor and three postmasters.
Commissioner Delano says he will re
