IF ram= wsitz any basis for the other
day's rumor that our. Attorney General
.Basv,ternif was likely to be appointed to
succeed Judge Hoes in the same office
under the Federal Administration, -it is
evident that the gentleman fails to see it.
He has been invited to resign his preeent
position, in order "to heal existing dis
sensions," but declines to accede to the
request. The request and the declination
may have an effect quite equivalent to the
desired resignation, in settling the politi.
cal.status of that official. This .is the
only hypothesis upon ihich the public
notoriety of the request and of its refusal
'ran be politically justified.

TEMY say that Chief Justice CHAf3p is

party which is without a single
National principle, and which can
never recover power except by the
abandonment of its past record, and a
miraculous oblivion of its past offences

public. Herein is the only Demo
cratic hope—and the only possi
bility for the ambitions Chief' Jus
tice: Nor will it damage him, is
a I:l l mocratic caudidate,that he has himself
blotted his public reputation with indeli
blestains, that he has systematically be
tra ed every friend, that he has falsified
.th . : '
ev ry high precession, that he has sullied
ermine of. the bench, and that he
mulls before his countrymen to-day the
most,conspicuous example in the 'land of
an unscrupulous politician, who reckons
no personal or political sacrifice, of any
sort, too great a price to pay for official
elevation. He ithe very man for oppo
sition favor—a fact which is patent to him
and to them alike. And events will
make this more and more clear.
GEARI AND PARDONS.
A few days since, we cited the official
records of the Commonwealth, in proof
of the fact that the pardoning.power has
been used with notable caution by the
present Executive. It will be remember
ed that these records show that, of the
sixteen Governors since' 1791, eleven
have pardoned a larger yearly average of
convicted criminals, and but four have
made a smaller average,than has Governor
GEARY. In that connection, the state
ment of another fact was omitted, which
it is of importance to present for
an exact understanding of any
merits which the question in
volves. It is this: Prior to the en
trance of Gov. GEARY upon his office,
the pardoning-power of the Commr
wealth was practically shared between
the Executive and the Criminal Courts of
Philadelphia. These tribunals claimed,
and exercised, a special privilege, in the
way of a remission of the sentences of
such criminals as had been convicted
therein, which was really tantamount to'
a wholesale'dispensation of 'pardons.
For examp!e, in one year, immediately
preceding the arrest of the abuse through
proceedings taken at the instance of the
present Governor, the Quarter Sessions
of Philadelphia released no less than
seventy-five convicted criminals. We are
to remember that a large proportion of
the cases in which pardon - is sought for,
indeed of the entire criminal calen
der of Pennsylvania, have their venue in
and about that great city. What its
Courts did in 1866. to turn convicts loose
upon society, they had regularly been
doing for years. Add the sentences thus
remitted to the number of those others
which the Governor, then in office, also
pardoned, and the aggregate each year
largely exceeded, under each and all of
Ahe former Governors of Pennsylvania,
the average of Gov. GEARY'S pardons.
Under his administration, fewer criminals
have been released from their penalties,
than under any of his predecessors in the
To Governor GuAry belongs the credit
of the discontinuance of this abuse by
the Philadelphia courts. Their power of
remission was challenged at his instance,
contested, carried before the Supreme
Court and there decided to be unconsti
tutional. The Philadelphia Democracy
may not forgive him for this, but the peo
ple of the Commonwealth feel othe:wise.
EMIGRATION FROM CHINA.
That the Chinese are remarkably pa
tient, docile, industrious, temperate and
honest, is conceded by all unprejudiced
persons who have had dealings with them
either In their own country or in this.
These are great excellencies, which make
the possessors of them a desirable element
of population in this republic, under ex•
isting circumstitnces, or under almost
any conceiveable aspect of affialre that may
heresfter arise. Much tenpins to be done
towards the complete development of
natural resources, and the Chinese in
large numbere, would contribute admir
ably toward the consummation of the pro
cess. Two objections, at least, are urged
against allowing them to immigrate hith
er, or to their admission to citizenship in
case they come.
Reducing the first of these objections
from the ambiguous and deceitful terms in
which It 12, couched to plain forms of
speech, it amounts to this, that the
Chinese, owing to their simple habits,
will lay up so mach at ordinary wages,
or manage to get on so comfortably with
smaller compensation than that exacted
by other classes of toilers, that it will
not do to let them obtain a firm foothold
here. Seeing all that this means, we do not
admit its conclusiveness. What the people
of this country need, above most things
else, is an example of frugality- No
other population under the wholeheavens
is one-half so prodigal, or so ostentatious
in the display of that vice.
The other objection is, that they are
not Christians bat heathens. But they ,
who press this'objection ought to ranem
ber that it is a cardinal doctrine of Chris
tianity that Christ is yet to subdue the.
whole_ world to himself; which - phrase
signifies, if it has any meaning, that all
the inhabitants of the earth are to become
Christian. Upon this hypothesis mis
sionary enterprised are prosecuted. Sure
ly it is cheaper to have the heathen cope
here to get the gospel for themselves thlin
to carry it across the ocean to them. If
it is thought that.when the - Chinese see

creed, but in daily life, they wiYi not take
to it kindly, and so had better be kept
away, why; then Christianity is wounded,
but only in the house of its friends. It
must be confessed, with, shame, that if
the Chinese rioSsess the virtues we have
allowed therkthey are already decidedly
superior to many who make loudprofes
sions of adhering to the only genuine
The Chinese who are established in the
republic maintain the forms of worship in
which they were educated by their fathers.
It is certainly possible that the multitudes
who will soon follow them hither
will erect their traditional altars, side , by
side with Christian temples. If they
shall, what law will they offend Y None,
surely, that we know of. Our civil insti
tutions are based upon the idea of ;perfect
freedom in matters of religion. No man has
aright to interpose between God and his
neighbor. Some, indeed, imperfectly com
prehend this liberty, as they do other forms
of the same substance; but their stupidity
or ignorance does not lessen the value
thereof or render it destructible. Fric
tion and heat may catalpa awhile, as
now in California, on this "subject; but in
the end, and presently, the whole truth
will be discerned and its claims admitted:
Twenty years ago, all kinds of liberty
were challenged, as though they only
were exercised by indulgence and not in
herent and immutable. In the searching
discussions that followed liberty was not
simply vindicated; it 'was so illustrated
that everybody was constrained to appre
hend, its absolute nature and ap
plications. In their efforts in behalf of
the slaves the abolitionists first liberated
themselves from all paltry passions and
prejudices—which was, in fact, their
chief and sublimest work—and then lib
erated the slaves, which was but an infer
ence from their own emancipation. The
right of one set of men to differ from all
others, even on matters of the most vital
and enduring concernment, has:been con
quered, and will not be given up.
But, it is uselesa to discuss this ques
tion under this view. The advance
guard of the Chinese immigration is here,
and the arrival of the main body will not
be resisted. What remains to do, is to
prepare for it, so as to get the best that is
possible out of it when it comes.
AN INFELICITY OF Vt EALTII.
Democracies, whether civil or religious,
are unfriendly to wealth and its posses
sors. A distinguished clergyman was
recently reported as saying that it always
distressed him to have a man, die leaving
a fortune as large as an hundred thou
sand dollars. The expression embodied
the matured judgment of a numerous
class of religionists, who conceive that
poverty is akin to godliness. An emi
writer on political economy reduced the
same conception to tho. aphorism that
"wealth is robbery." - Perceiving that
while some abound in the good things of
this life, others are impoverished, he
jumped to the conclusion that the consol
idation of much in few hands necessa
rily tended to deprive many others of
proper Comforts, upon a principle anala
gous to that by which the upheaval of
mountains produces not only a relative
but an actual depression of valleys.
In monarchies, on the other hand, the
concentration of wealth, in large quan
tities in few persons, is regarded as
consistent and indispensable. Civic, po
litical and military services are rewarded
by liberal largesses from the public funds.
Nor is it deemed disgraceful for ambitious
individuals, desiring political promotion,
to buy honors either of the Crown or of
fellow subjects. Hence the vast sums
paid in England to obtain seats in Par
liament, and in all regal governmenta for
peerages. Montesquieu goes so far as to
affirm that while virtue and honesty are
-essential to the perpetuation of a repub
lic, they are necessary, but rather hin
drances, to the maintenance of mon
Speaking in general terms, it may be
said that in the United States the posses.
sion of wealth is a drawback upon most
men who seek political preferment. This
proceeds from that innate jealousy of
wealth, and particularly of its display in
any of the ordinary forms, which coniports
With the radical idea 'of a democracy.
The idea prevails widely that if a man
has wealth, he must have acquired It dis
honestly. The process by which this
conclusion is reached is this; all wealth
is the prodct of labor,—and all labor is
mainly or purely physical or muscular.
Of course the first part of this process is
° the last part utterly false.
Wealth exists abundantly, often sponta•
neously, in nature, and frequently the
mere taking and holding possession is af
fluence; aid wheq the problem becomes
one of work they brho toll with bone and
muscle - solely or largely, will always and
properlybe surpassed by those-who put
brain into their labor, and eiactiy in ra
tio as they put it in. If flesh and blood
were the crowning glories of human be
ings, as foolish ones assume, under vari
rious forms, the conclusion will be ad
missable that all honest work is bodily;
but as the higher portions of man are
mental and affetional, it must follow that
they who put most thought and emotion
into their toil, in legitimate ways, are en
titled to most compensation and, in the
long run, will get It.,
How difficult it is for a wealthy corpora
tion to obtain justice when impleaded be
fore a jury with a poor manl The fact
that one is poverty.stricken and the other
opulent, is almost certain to , incline the
scalie-ofjoitice unreasonably agar* the
rich. The result ie not esseatially differ.
`ent ithen the parties to a suit are individ
uals, the one - rich and ,the other poor.
The poverty - of a litigant, if he can man
age to survive the "law's delays," is
sure to tell in his favor. In criminal pro.
ceedings, however, a poor man is gener
ally Certain to have justice meted out to
him; unless he is an important member
of a political party, while a rich man,
outside of Massachusetts, can rely pretty
safely upon gilding his crimes with gold
so effectually as to be able to snap his
fingers in defiance of all penal.statutes.
Even in politics a man's wealth is sel
dom an advantage to him in this country.
It is often a dead-weight upon his pros
pects, which he finds it difficult to over
come. If he have transcendent abilities,
or a bearing and address insinuating to'
an extraordinary. degree, his wealth may
be forgiten him;' otherwise he may well
oalculate that his wealth will be the chief
accusation urged against him, and that
the prevalent jealousy of riches will ren
det the accusation fatal tohim.
Lo 4at the exemplifi cation of this
state dent furnished in the case of Mr.
ABA PACK.F.R. He was fmminated for
Governor by the Democrats because he
was almost fabulously rich and because
of nothing else. If he had been a poor
man, and just as ho is in other respects,
he would not have been nominated or
even thought of -in connection with the
gubernatorial, chair. By the confession
of political friends who know him best,
he is not a man of ideas. He has been
tried in public stations, and has proved'
a signal failure. But the expectation that
he would use his money to help his
chances, and those of his party, induced
-the Democrats to give him his present
political conspicuity. There is this ex
cuse for them, that they had tried every
other means of success, and been baffled,
and as nothing remained but to experi
ment with money bags, it was worth
while to try what virtue might possibll
be found in them.
What is the - result, thus far? Why,
this, that the nomination of Mr.
PACKER has tailed to awaken any enthu
siasm; that the natural repugnance of the
Democratic masses for rich men has not
been conquered by the admiration of the
leaders for them; and that he will be
most ingloriously defeated. No use he
can make of his enormous financial re
sources, even if he shall be found dispos
ed to fulfill the expectations in that re
gard of many, if not most, of those who
favored his nomination, will avail to spare
him the humiliation of a defeat. If he
were a brilliant orator or a profound
statesman, his riches might be forgiven
him by his co-partisans; but having only
money to assign as a reason why he
should be chosen, be cannot overcome
the antipathy the majority of the Demo •
crate feel towards men of his sort.
A Father Kills Ma Son.
A shocking tragedy at Cleveland is thus
reported by the Herald of yesterday:
At half-past twelve'o'clock on Monday
morning a terrible:tragedy occurred at
the Lake View House, at the corner of
Seneca and Summit streets, on the bank
of the lake. Philip Gilmartin, proprietor
of the house, shot and instantly killed his
son, Thos. Gilmartin, while the latter
was attempting to enter the house. The
circumstances as related by the father,
who is a gray-haired man, sixty-three
years of age, are as follows: t
He retired, with his wife, at the usual
hour, and the lights were extinguished.
Thomas was not in the house, but this was
not bncommon for him, as he was in the
habit of being out about the city at all
hours of the night. At the time men
tioned Mr. Gilmartin and his wife were
awakened by the rattling of a window
sash and were soon convinced that some
person was attempting to enter. Being
old people and having a sum of money in
the house, they were naturally suspicious
of burglars. The noise was at, a window
upon the north side of the house opening
into a room adjoining their steeping
Mr. Gilthartin had in his room an old
Harper's Ferry _musket, shortened to the
length of a carbine, which he kept load
ed for any emergency of this kind. Tak
ing this in his hand he proceeded to the
window, discerning in the dim light the
form of a man just in the act of clamber
ing upon the sill, the lower half of the
sash having been - removed. He first
challenged the intruder with: "Who's
there?" but he did not receive any reply.
Feeling satisfied that- he was a burglar.
Mr. Gilmartin immediately raised his gun
and fired. The man fell upon the inside,
without a cry or moan.
The report aroused the other inmates of
the house and some of the neighbors, and
for a few minutes a scene of the wildest
excitement prevailed. ' Upon going to the
spot the man was found where he fell, in
the expiring agonies of death. The hor
ror and amzserdent of the aged father and
the other members of the family, when
they recognized the face of Thomas Gil.
martin, can be but faintly imagined. A
physictanivas linmediately sent for and
the still breathing man was takeninto the
house. The physician soon arrived, but
nothing could be done, and he died within
a few minutes. After being shot he
neither spoke nor gave any sign of con
sciousness. The ball, which was a large
one, entered the right eye and , passed en
tirely through the head, emerging. at the
back side. The head, torn and mangled,
presented a shocking spectacle.
The police were immediately rihtifie4
of the affair, and. Gilmartin was 'taken
into custody. He is known as an inno
cent, inoffensive old gentleman: He was
almost overcome .with grief at the terrible
deed he had un vittingly committed. The
Coroner will hold an inquest on Monday,
when some further light - may be thrown
upon the matter. As the case appears,
there is not the slightest evidence of any
criminality upon the part of Mr. Gilmar
tin, and he wilt probably be discharged.
The deceased was twenty-nine years of
age, and was a notoriously bad character.

The German Turners.
The seventeenth annual festival of the
Turner Society in this country com
menced at Chicago on Saturday last,
and will continue four days, closing on
Wednesday. This grand old German or
der, which has flourished so extensively
in he old country, has taken a firm root
in this, in our large cities especially; and
the festival at Chicago according to the
Tribune, will be marked by great gaiety
and - teremony. There are to be concerts,
illuminations, processions, speeches, ex
ercises, intellectual and physical, feasting
and music, dancing and fireworks.
The exercises are to be out-door,
in 'a fine grove; a large Fest-
Halle has been erected, in which the
banquet will take place; a beautiful tri
=phial arch spans the street at the en
trance of Turner *Hall, and the street
through which the procession will move
is gaily decorated with flowers, banners
and appropriate devices. The grand
concert, which - ; will follow the prize
essays and turning, will be composed of
150 singers and an orchestra of 50 per
formers. On the last day the Turner
Teachers and Wartz Congress meet for
deliberation; the prizes will then be dis
tributed, ai excursion will follow, and
the whole will wind up with a grand
The Tr Mune says very correctly of this
'‘The Turners date their origin from
the German war of independence against
the first Napoleon, the founder of
Turnerel being Professor Jahn, of Ber
lin, commonly called Vatca Jahn. It
was a patriotic movement, intended to
promote and cultivate in. the minds of
young Germans those healthy ideas of
education which, in more recent days,
have been advocated by Charles Kings
ley and the school of "muscular Chris
tians." Father .Jahn organized the
Turners with a view tb unite the training
of the body with that of the mind, justly
regarding the healthy progress of the one
inseparable from that of the other.
His idea was eagerly . embraced,
and was soon carried into practice
all over Germany. Turner organi
zations became the rage, and they took
an active part in the war which resulted
in the liberation of Germany.: From that
period the ideas inculcated by the founder
took firm root, and Turner classes became
, a feature in all the schools of the coun-
try. A prominent - feature of the educa
tion of the youth, aside from the physical
exercises, was the promulgation of ideas
of political and religious liberty, and
those have formed a notable element in
the history' of the organization. ) One
clause in their ,platform is that no man
can be a member of the Turner sciety
unless he is a friend to social, political
and religious freedom, and opposed to
slavery in every form. .
The first Turner's Society in this
country was organized in lie* York, and
for a long time they had various diffi
culties to contend with. These were grad
ually surmounted, and at the present day
they are a numerous and powerful body
in every city*, which the German element
is to be found. The United States is di

Waux President Grant went to see
Judge Pierrepont, in New York, Tues
day, the Judge was not in his office. A

to the Presidential vote last Fall. The
liberal registration allowed almost every
body to vote. All the members of the
Legislature elect in West Tennessee are
probably Democrats, except three orf our.
All the whites voted that wished to, ev
ery Iprecaution being taken to prevent
colored men from voting. The registers
directed that they vote at their own pre
cincts, where they would vote the Repub
lican ticket only at the peril of their lives.
The Register of this county threatened to
seize the railroad trains if employed to
bring negroes to vote.. In Memphis fully
five hundred voters in the eastern part of
the county lost their chance by the Mem
phis and Cherie ston Railroad not allowing
them to come in. Conductors were in
structed to run past stations to prevent
colored people from reaching the city.
Colored voters were challenged on the
most trivial pretext. Pistols were drawn
on some in the country, and their certifi
cates forced, from them.
