A MONDE OUR ADVANCED CIVILI
The beneficent effects of advanced civ
ilization cannot be more clearly seen than
in the various plans through which So
ciety extends a helping hand to each of
its members. The theory of savage life
,Was "Each for himself." All the efforts of
each individual tended to benefit his own
standing at the expense .of his fellews.
Actuated by the Same spirit which leads
two savages in Africa who may accident
'ally meet, to, fall to work and see which
can kill the other, the whole society of
the barbarous age was warring upon
itself. But with the advance of civiliza
tion, or more properly with the exten
sion of the Christian religion, came the
reverse of this social policy of mutual
enmity. AU commenced to see'how each
could be aided, and every system of co
operation was devised. The very founda
tion of government itself rests on this ba
sis. The implied contract is, that every
man shall hasten to help his brother, when
his brother is in need. Carrying down
the same idea-from'nations to communi
ties, we find the system of co-operation
and of societies formed. It underlies the
Masonic Brotherhood, and is the moving,
spirit In unions of class. But its
perfection is reached in the adoption of
the system of insurance. That is the
practical triumph of all the doctrines of
mutual aid. The first application of the
plan of the many helping each one of its
members, was the origination of the sys
tem of fire and marine insurance. , There
the society guarantees protection and rec
ompense to each of its individlal Sup
porters and under its operation the loss of
each is divided among all. By this means
none can be crushed by disaster. But a
highei form of mutual protection was des
tined to be reached in the organization of
Life Insurance. It was possible that
many of those who contributed to a fire
insurance company, would never be ex
posed to the danger which they paid their
money to avoid, and thus, after years of
eipense, they might find that they would
have been as safe had they, net paid pre
miums. Not so with Life Insurance.
The dread certainty of death is not a pos
sible danger to be averted; it will come to
and is the only certain event in all
the future. ' In preparing against its ray
ages, no man need fear that he is losing
his money, Of foolishly investing it. He
is but taking a wise precaution against an
approaching event. There something
positively startling in the idea of an in ! .
sarince spinet tluklosi which must fol
low death. If an intelligent Chinaman
- was to be told the theory of. Life. Insur
ance, he would be amazed at Its ingenuity
and justice, and would be astonished that
ail did notayalltheinselves of its advan
tages. To have a society which will
guarantee to the family of the deceased a
`Certain large sum, on condition of a small
annual PaYtheo; and that sum tole paid
Whether he die tomorrow or fifty years
lance, is certainly a novel 'plan, and one
which robs death of some of its keenest
terrors. It is the dread of. the' destitution
of the dear ones, which will follow death,
which makes se, many . f a thers of %Wiles
tremble at Si arprciach; and .now. 'a means

foolish 'doubt when applied to a national
enterprise. In such an institution as the
National Life Insurance Company there
is no more danger of a failure than is there
of the eternal hills becoming unstable.
It is an institution chartered by the Con
gress of the Nation; its - revenues are so
large, the character of its controllers so
high, and its business so extended, that
policy as well as honesty makes such a
failure to keep its engagements Impossi
ble. We see in the National Life, ,Ithe
perfection of the theory of fraternal
operation, which has been gradually 'de

not only embraces all the idea's of he
past, but is based on so broad a form a.

THE PITH 4W THE GEORGIAN
Tie act of Congress of dune 25, '6B,
to admit certain States, including Georgia,
to representation in Congress, required,
among other conditions precedent, her
ratification of to Krirth Article. She
did apparently ratify . that Article, but
subsequently declared that the act of rati
fication was usuiPatory, in that it was
done by an illegal body, to-wit, a Legis
lature in which the majorities were made
up of intruders not having aLshadow. of
constitutional title to seats therein. And
then, consistently with that doctrine, the
State proceeded to purge these intruders
out. Of course their quisi.legialative
record is expunged when they were ex
In this matter, we take Georgia at her
own word, and hold her to its conse
quences, the most prominent of which
must be her utter failure to ratify the
Article, arid her own resulting exclusion
from the sisterhood of recognized States.
Simply because the reactionary rebel sen
timent obtained the control of that
State's affairs, would be of no legal con
sequence to us, so long as their recovery
of that position was in accordance with
their Constitution and laws. We might
regret it, but should be powerless to pre;
vent or repair the Political mischief. On
no such ground do her Senators and Rep
resentatives stand now excluded from
Congress. They . remain in the lobby
for a better reason—that an indispensible
condition for their admittance, the ilegal
ratification of that Article, remains un
fulfilled, according to their own showing.
It is true, as we stated yesterday, that the
last Houseseceivei her Representatives,
but the Senate made no such bluhder,
and the present Congress concurs in the
wisarcaution, which is clearly defensible
upon the position as we have here stated
it—and upon no other ground whatever.
Hence, whether in view of the law .or of
the facts, the New York Tint, is in error
when it says:
Her Legislature ratified the Fourtes' nth
Amendment, and we have never heard
the validity of its-action in so doing
questioned. Its Representatives were
admitted to the House and held their
seats to the .close of the Fortieth Con
grass. The State has, then, been repre
sented in Congress since its recon
struction under the law or Congress, fUld
all the acts essential to restore the State
to its "practical relations to the Union"
seem to have been performed to the entire
satisfaction of all departments of. Ithe
Every statement in this paragraph is a
mistake, as we have repeatedly shown,
and the %List Congress with the Ex
ecutlie are clearly justifiable in treating,
Georgia as under, a provisional govern
ment, unkss we are ail to be required to
unlade that this guaeilegielative set m,
of perrona who are held palpably intru
ders, iiithout warrant for any kgialatice
prictleye whatever, is competent to bind
both the Eltate and the Unkan. That l is
the question ,to be considered by Con
gress, by the President and by the people,
For ourselves, it i&plain enough where
we stand upon it.
THE LAST FREE•TRADE DODGE.
If it be true, as stated in some quarters,
that Republican politicians incline to en
graft the Alabama question among party
issues, they will reckon without their
host in counting upon the Republicans Of
Pennsylvonia. Bat we doubt the truth
of the statement to which we refer. It
beam the ear-marks of an opposition
scheme to embarrass . the Repub
licans of this State, in their ad
vocacy of other imlitical issues. The
story is industriously dissemminnted
from Washington, for the ;'evident
purpo'se of damaging a favorite principle
in this Commenwealth—thit of vote°.
tion for:American industry. For it is at
once' followed .up with the flagrantly
erroneous inaintration, in the New York
Post, the leading free-trade organ of the
foreigrt • importers, that the scheme is
wholly "a protectionist plot" to secure
popularAajorities by the help of a aide
We bee yet to see the first journal in
this State, among those which bole been

Philadelphia North Asuriciin, a tiewspa

interests of native industry, remarks
that the "leaders" who could propose
this new article in our political creed,
must be few in number "and composed
rather of those-who would be, than of
such as are leaders." And it adds, upon
the point f of withdrawing the question
Irma diplomacy, that:
This will be the almost certain result
if at party is formect on the basis of de
manding all of our claims from England
without qualification. We have great
hopes that justice will yet be tendered us
by that country, and an absolute certain
ty that wise delay will win for us all, we
need to have without war. Of war we
have had enough to satisfy the most el

MATtEK TO THINK UPON.
The New York Tribune, while paying
a just tribute to the uprightness of Mr.
Bay v, the veteran editor of the Even
ing Post, of that city, incidentally ex:
presses, in a decided mariner, an opinion
entitled to high consideration. We copy
two paragraphs, as follows:
"Mr. William C. Bryant has been over
forty years an editor in this city, and al
ways a pronounced and unequivocal Free
Trader. Nay: it is considerably more
than forty years since in his "Meditation
on Rhode Island Coal," he tilted at Sec
retary Richard Rush's first Protectionist
Report as Secretary of the Tree,Attry,
"Moore's Lalta Rooth. the Treasury Report,
And other brilliant utters or the sort."
In these fortychld years, we have seen
nothing to incite a doubt that Mr. Bry
ant's-understanding and heart were on
the same side with his pin; and the fact
that his services to the Free Trade cause
have been generously requited, casts no
shadow on his integrity. We say it to the
honor of our importers that they have,
by their advertising patronage, wisely,
generously, sagaciously made The Even.
mg Post the most .pntilltable newspaper of
like circulation in America, -as they
ought to have done. Had those inter.
sated in the prosperity and progress of
American Manufactures evinced equal
good sense, Instead of barely one Journal
openly, actively, defiantly Protectionist
in New York, there woulk have been at
least halt a dozen. And now, if . they shall
be juggled out of the present Carl', as they
were onto/ that of 1828, and again out of
that of 1812, we shall for the country's
sake deeply regret the calamity, but for
theirs not bit. THEY wits, usvE 'RICH
LY RESER En Tama escheat."
This censure upon the men prominently
connected with the manufacturing inter
est, is not simply applicable in New York,
but everywhere else throughout the whole
country; and, in a special degree, in those
centres of population where manufactur
ing is the main employment both of labor
and capital. •
United States District Court—Judge
THUBBDAY, June 10.—The case of the
United States vs. MCKIM it Co., reported
yesterday, was resumed. Maj. A. M.
Brown closed the argument for•. the de
fendants, and was followed .by platen;
Attorney Carnahan on, behalf of the
Judge McCandless charged the jury as
follows: I cannot agree with the learned
counsel for the defendants, in the points
submitted by them. This is not amase
parallel to those before my brothers
'Drummond and Leavitt, at Chicago and
Cincinnati. It is not a case of forfeiture,
dependent upon an intent to defraud the
Government, or of fraud actually perpe
trated. The Government does not claim
that the Revenue has been defrauded, or
that even such was the design of the
parties in Sidling to comply with the
requisitions:of the law. The iniante
talis enumerated in the Atatiste;riecessa
xy for the construction of a distillery, al
most_equal to those required ibr the eras.
Lion of King Solomon's Temple, where
each cubit was particularized, were for
the purpose of preventing fraud which
former laws seemed inadequate to meet.
This is an action for:the =recovery: of a
penalty imposed for not doing that which
the law bommonds, or. doing that which
the law forbids. It is averred that the
- cisterns Were not so constructed as to pre
vent the abstractions ca spirits while
robing from the otitiet.Of the worrn_and
orward the,' receiving cistern. And
that the apparatus lOW so arranged that
fmnceffin was Clad to As spirits betaram
the outlet of the worm and the cistern
room, sad that whit* th• aptrits won aa
LIU* .- ` 4.
p:.:ing, they might be abstracted, to the
prejudice of the public revenue.
If yon believe the witnesses on the part
of thtyGoverelment, snch was the case in
this distillery. •
Bid! it is contended that under the
ninety-sixth section this must be "wil
fully and maliciously', done." So it must.
And Mr. Mltiat. with the candot which
becoines his character, admits it was done
by. hiin for. the reason that if the opening
in the receiving tub .had not been made ;
he cbuld not see whether what was pass
ing 'from the.worm) was high or .low
wiriest, that the pressure from the .stills
forced up the 1111dIstiped mash, and that
he could not manufacture whisky with
out it: No man is •compelled to mann
factthe whisky, and no person is author
ized,lio make it unless hey complies with
all the requirements lof the act of Con
grese. These are enjoined to prevent the
possibility of frauds, land courts and ju
ries will be derelict iu duty when these
salutary provisions are permitted to be
frittered away by judicial legislation.
The interpretation given to the words
"knowing and wilfully" is constrained,
and does not fit theL argument for the
defense, without an interpolation of the
statute, by adding "with intent to defraud
the revenue." Under the act no such
intent is necessary. The penalty is in
curred, the offence Complete ' when the
defendants "have left undone those
things which' they ought to have done,
and done things which they ought not:to
baveldone." and this without any fraud
,ulent or criminal intent.
The jury then retired, and after a brief
absence returned a verdict for the Uni
ted States in the aum of 111,000, the
amount of the penalty imposed by the
United States vs. johre Ward, indicteG
for illicit distilling. 1 It is alleged that
defendant set up a tin still at a woolen
manufactory in the I•Fourth ward, Alle
gheny, In Mardi; 4868, and distilled
whiskey from molasses, on a small scale,
without complying with the require
mentsti of ao of Congress. The case is

The neat ilea taken up was the city of

with disorderl conduct. This was an
appeal from th declaims or the Mayor of
Allegheny in a case of summary convic

The defendant, ip company with a
number of other persons. it appears, had
been out serenading a friend, and were
returning home, between twelve and one
o'clock on the morning of the bth inst.,
where, it is lelleged by the prosecution,
they were acting in a disorderly manner,
singing songs and hallowing on the streets
of said city, and they were arrested and
taken before the Mayor, who fined Mr.
Stain and others of the party, sind an ap
peal was taken and the case brought for
a hearing before Judge Stowe.
The following testimony was elicited:
Lieutenant If catestley, sworn.—Friday
morning, June 4, a little after twelve
o'clock, I was passing along Jackson
street, heard a party coming along some
distance above, making considerable
noise; hurried down to meet them at
Montgomery street, to nequest them to
keep quiet. At North avenue one of the
teams halted a little to let the other pas
I got clOte enong_h to be seen by them.
They saluted us by saying "come on you
sons of b—s." They then drove on. 1
followed them to the Diamond, 1n front
oftthe/Market House, where some of the'
officers, had stopped them. They were
singlmfand shouting all the way down.
Some of them were arrested then, and
some got away. I was fally three squares
from them When I first heard the noise.
I cannot say, whether there was anything
particular in the conduct of Strain from
the rest of the patty. Strain was arrested
and looked up. t
Cross-examined--When I first heard
the noise they were on the track of the '
Pleasant Valley Railway. _I do not
know what they were singing. The
party was arrested by Samuel Bowden
and others. The first that I saw of Mr.
Strain he waaan the cell in the look-up.
Mr., Strain might have been the front
Zanies Taylor, sworn—First saw the
party on Jackson street: heard the noise
•twO, squares. They could see us plainly.
They were making a loud noise, some
singing and some hallowing. All ap
peared to be singing separate tunes. I
dicknot see, Strain until after some of the
parties.were arrested. -The only thing I
