Sunday Travel on Passenger Railw - a3 s--Its
Moral 12.tre-C•t.
As the questien of the morality, n , well as
the propriety of Sunday traveling on our Pas
senger Railways, is exciting sonic interest. the
effect produced upon morals by the cus
tom; which prevails in the East, may not be
foreign to the matter now. The committee of
ninety-six, hitting in charge the movement
relative to the running of ,•:irs on Sunday, in
Philmdelphia, of which \Vim B. Thomas is
Chairman. have been corresponding with the
public authorities of New York, Brooklyn
and Boston, in reference to the .d.fect pro
-ltt upon the public Morals 1,..y the use of
tbo a.:s •r , •-•; d TI •
p r. r, ins I It .
swer Co these Huhn::: shows t hat the appre
heniions entertained by the strict Sabbatari
ans, that one general flood of licentiousn e ss
and infidelity would follow the running of the
ears pa Sunday, are unfounded in reason and
unsustained by facts. in the cities named, the
?Wenger railroads are used by the public every
day iu the week, and yet, with perfect free
dom of travel at all times, there is none of
that,iticrease of rowdyism, that general gath
ering ef aisorderly crowds, that concentrated
drunkenness and dissoluteness which it is
urged will follow the running of the car. On
Sunday in this city. The universal testimony
is. that the Sunday running of the ears is n
peat and general i 19 1 ,•.• t. the citi:,ens,
tbirthOy bave lA nd Wist, tended tO any nub
lit' disorder, or to any licentious or drunken
OseMblagss, that they fire used as decorously
HQ fey guqd pWricises on Sunday as any
other day of the week, and were the railroad
companies themselves: to stop running lip 'll
Sunday, the public experience of the utility
and convenience of city travel on that day
would compel them to resume running.
In support of this belief, we mate the fol
lowing extract. from the replies of the author-
ities of the eit:es, the benefit of whose ex peri
elms was . sougla. Mayor Tiemann, of New
York, 'says:
"This city has had some practical experience
fp to' the effect ~f Sunday travel in rail ears,
aim 4 froM the observations I have made, and
theinfornMtion I nave been enabled to gather
from others, I am satisfied that no such deplo
rable effects, as you represent many of your
NA citizens fyar from ,uch travel in your city,
have occurred here. I know of no instal l ,
of any riot or other disorder having occurred
in consequence of the .sinning of ears on Sun
ifily,.uor of lasy !:reat gathering of disorderly
dr other persons at the several termini of our
ritilrOads on that day. The prlietice has, on
the contrary, been found of great convenience
o atl classes of our nitherisand the cars, al
qugh used on the day allink s i to chiefly by a
ifferent class from those who travel in them
on week days, still many of our best citizens,
intelligent and religion., land themselves of
the public accommodations afforded by these
Cars on Sundays, in going t,, and from t h e sev
eral churches in our city, and in other act.
which the most strictly religious would admit
as compatible with the observance of that holy
'Mayor Lincoln, of Roston, says the evil
most feared by the residents of Lawrenceville
liip Rot made itself apparept there, as will be
peep by this' paragraith ;
f , I have no doubttliat, to some extent, they
are used tiB„ matter of pleasure, but the evil
that was apprehended, that large companies of
idlers would rush into the country and spend
the day in dissipation, much to the discomfort
and peace of the inhabitants of the suburb.,
has not been realized in fact. There is a general
regard for the Sabbath In our city and vicini
ty ; if is not kept as strictly as it was by our
fathers, but yetet good sentiment pervades all
classes of our People, and seldom is anything
teen which is objectionable."
gesso'. Powell, of Brooklyn, New York.
bears - similar testimony, and' is or opinion that
it , Wad a fortunate circumstance for the resi
dents of that city the views of the Sabbatari
ant did not prevail ; he says:
'"While the cars are filled during the day
with passengers, they are, with scarcely any
exceptions, of the most orderly and respectable
class of our citizens; and T think a large ma
j,::ritz are females. I have not heard'of as in
gra- complaint from the people living in the
suburbs of anything like disorder or riotous as
sembleges, and from repented personal obser
vation, I am sure no cause of complaint exists.
The cars are likewise patronized to a great cx
teat by our church-going people, and many
44.a5: are required to accommodate them at
the close of the evtiningservice, I n 'f ac t:, so
. .
SlElleral is now the acquiescence of the people
in this measure, that I am convinced if it was
brought to the test of a popular vote, that an
overwhelming majority would approve it."
There are many people in our city who have
no time for rest or recreation in daylight, ex
cept upon the Sabbath, and who cannot afford
private conveyances, (though if they could, it
i.s questionable if, under the same law which
*ottld forbid the running of cars on Sunday,
theyeould use thein), and fully as many, resia
mg out of the city and worshiping in it, to
whom this modeof conveyance would he a great
convenience. and it seems very unfair to de
prive them of its benefits at the only time they
can employ them.
We cannot say how many of our projected
railways may desire to run their cars on the
Lord's Day, but the question of the public right
to travel in the way individuals see fit to pre
fer, every day in the week, is a question which
should be 4 once dell e itely settled.

we think it will be a very successful exhibition.
The premium list is a very liberal one, embra
cing cash premiums, medals or diplomas-for
stock of every description, farm and mineral
products, food, farm implements, household
manufactures, fine specimens in the arts, and
manufactured articles of all kinds. To accom
plish this the premiums announced amount to
over three thouSan'A itix luMared dollarsideash,
in addition to two hundred and nine diplomas,
a silver cup valued at, ten dollars, thirty-one
silver medals and twenty-three bronze medals.
At the grounds, everything is in a forward
state of preparation, and ample accommoda
tions are provided for exhibitors in every de

Glpner's Trimtulug Store.
A trimming store is an unknown land to the
masculine gender, except on these periodical
occasions when 'the hill comes in;'' but the
ladies know that a tirst-class frimming store is
undoubtedly indispensible to their personal
comfort and happiness. A good trimming
stored; a place where something like three or
four thousand different kinds of articles of use,
ornament and beauty, which ladies need, are
sold. The variety is almost infinite, and it
would be idle for us, or any other mule lAped,
to attempt even to gues.; what use our fair
friends apply these things to. But they need
and will have them—and all we men have
to do is to furnish the money to buy them. A
nice place for the ladies to obtain all these
little etceteras is the trimming store of Mr.
Charles Gipner, No. 78 Market street. Mr.
Gipner is experienced in the business, and on
his shelves and in his drawerS' May be . fo'und
every thing which a trimming store ought to
have. The ladies will find it a pleasant place
to deal.
FALL TRISIMINGS.—EIsewhere will be found
the advertisement of Joseph Horne, No. 77
Market street, near Fourth, who is now receiv
ing, at his old established trimming store, an
extensive and well selected stock of goods in
his line, including an immense variety of dress
trimmings, embroidetiei, Wins,gloyes
siery, millinery goods, men:s furnishing goods,
fancy woolen goods new fall bonnets, and
skirts in endless variety. The ladies have, we
know, ever been partial to Mr. Horne's estab
lishment, as they can always got what they
wish, of good quality, and the good taste of
that gentleman in selecting goods is proverbial.
It is only necessary to call the attention of the
fair sex to the fact that he-liti received his fall
goods to crowd his store at all hours. He is in
every way deserving of patronage and success.

Theatre managers are commenting the "stars

appears to-night at the Apollo Theatre in his

for him a full house, as he stands unequaledin
that part. Re will appear, during the week,
in several of his best characters, and wo advise
all who love good acting to go and see him.

Investigation Into Serious Charges against
the Superintendent of the House of
I <One year ago last June, reports were in cir
culation, reflecting seriously upon Thomas 0.
Rutherford, Superintendent of the House of
Refuge, and from which it would seem he had
been on familiar terms with several of the
young girls under his charge. These rumors
were quieted, and the matter hushed up, but
within two or three weeks they have been re
vived, and this time they appear to bear the
impress of truth. A young girl, discharged
from the institution, told her relatives of cer
tain occurrences doting her stay there, which
earns to the ears of the Board of Managers.
Other charges soon followed, and on Monday
morning at teno'clock was fixed for an in
vestigation into their truth or falsity.
Meanwhile information was made before the
Mayor, charging Mr. Rutherford with crimi
nal intimacy with no less than three inmates
of the Refuge, during the years 1856, 1857,
1858 and 1859. A ffi davits of certain parties
cognizant of the facts were taken, but no war
rant i 111.9 vet been issed for the arrest of the ac
Mayor Weaver was permitted to be present
at the investigation by- the Board yesterday,
though it was at first intended to exclude all,
vet be virtue of his office lie was admitted.
We have not heard the precise nature of the
evidence, but it is, so far as we can learn, pretty
conclusive as to the truth of the charges pre
ferred. The examination is not concluded, but
will be to-day, when it is probable Mr. Ruth
erford will hand in his resignation.
This circumstance is much to be deplored. as
• it is calculated to seriously injure an institution
intended to reform the vicious. No punish
ment is too severe—no measure of degradation
is too deep for the man, who under the guise of
a fatherly and religious care, vested in the au
thority which his position gives bins, could use
his power to such ends—overawing the Young
girls committed to his charge and by an ex
ercise of his authority virtually compelling
them to step aside from the paths of rectitude,
instead of leading them bark to a virtuous life
--the purpose for which the were eonfined to
the institution.
We should be pleased if Mr. Rutherford
could vindicate his character against these
charges, but we fear the evidence is too strong
to be set aside. We can, therefore, only hope
that he may see the error of his ways and re
pent sincerely, even though punishment should
not follow his misdeeds, and that his successor
may he not only a man of irreproachable char
acter not only in seeming, but in fact, hut
above suspicion sir temptation.

standing the announcement made a few days
ago, that it was doubtful if any important
point had been settled. Whether the fault is
attributable to the preliminaries of the treaty
of V illafranea, or to the Emperors nut having
taken into etinsiderati(m, in their eager anxi
ety- to snake peace, all the difficulties of the
negotiations, no one knows. Some people in -
,•line to the opinion that this delay is inten
tional, and the manner its which Mr. D,•bour
geucy is acting, lend, some color to tlit
chin. What the Frenell govern...lent will tit
last 1111%0 to do, is simply to declare to Austria
that it has all 1 1 410, was morally in its
power in favor of its proteges, or else it [mot

FanNiiE—A speech by Count De Morney at
the opening of the Council General of the De
partment of Payde Dome, attracted consider
able attention, as it was regarded as an enun
ciation of the sentiments of the Emperor. The
Count endeavored to show that the apprehen
sions existing in England of a French invasion
were groundless, and, on the contrary, France
wasdesiraus of cementing the alliance between
the two countries, and waging only a manu
facturing and conmiercial war. Ile denounced
that portion of the English press and those
members of Parliament who questioned the in
tentions of the French government.
