The Philadelphia Times thinks it worth while te speak of Mr. Gewen's presi dency of the Reading read as being end ed, and te give the title of president te Mr. :Bend. It is a very shadowy title, te even tie title, that Mr. Bend has, and he lias net a premising prospect of taking anything very substantial by the decis ion of the court in his favor, which it seems te think,itself, does net amount te anything : Mr. Bend's counsel net being able te get from it an order te put him in possession of the office te which it declares .him entitled. The court Inclined te think that a new procedure by quo warrante would lie needed te install the elected officers. Such impotence in the court's de cision seems te show that there was some thing radically wrong in the method in which it undertook te take held of this dispute; for certainly if Bend is presi dent, aud it had a...

The idea of offering te the holders of the government bends, presently falling due, the option of leaving their money -with the government at a reduced rate of interest was an excellent one and we can imagine no reasonable, objection te it. It isfair te the borrower and ad vantageous te the lender. It is a very cheap way of making a new lean, saving commissions te agents and avoiding the steals that have dis graced Mr.Shermau's funding operations. It is safe te say that if he was secretary of the treasury new, such a plain and honest way of continuing the govern ment lean would net have been adopted.

Attorney General Palmer replies te the legislature's inquiry as te the moneys he has collected and the fees he has re tained, in a specific statement which shows that he has pocketed te date twenty-one thousand dollars as his com pensation. The laws allow the attorney general te retain fees each year te the amount of seven thousand dollars. Mr. Palmer has heen in service a little ever two years and is already paid for three ; and yet he has net taken anything he was net entitled te. This somewhat curious result springs from the fact that the first year for which he was entitled te charge his annual compensation ended after he had been in office seven mouths. Fer these seven months he took his seven thousand dollars, and he had a right te de se because the commission en the sums collected by him exceeded that ameuntand the attorney genera...

In the Western states, where land is worth from 820 te 830 per acre, and corn can be raised profitably at 20 cents per bushel, I think the present plan of allow ing tbe corn te mature, and feeding the ears te hogs and the stalks and leaves te cattle, will pay better than ensilaging the corn when in tassel.

Beferm Ih Municipal tiaveramenL There lias been a remarkable series of Democratic victories and Republican reverses in recently occurring municipal elections. They liave been confined te no section nor te towns of any special class. Beginning in Philadelphia the tidal wave rolled ever Cincinnati and Chicago and has swept back through Xew 'Jersey and New Yerk. It may be that these results have a general significance and represent public dissatisfaction at the course of the Republicans in Washington in wasting the time of the Senate and abusing the call for an executive session, in the vain effort te perpetuate the party of repudiation in a proud, commonwealth. It may be that these discemfitures of the opposition are the natural and usual reaction after a presidential campaign..

Before an informal meeting of the members of the Legislature last evening appeared Collector of Delinquent Taxes Wm. J.

At the conclusion of the discussion some of the members, in cluding Representatives Tyler and Wolfe, took occasion te complain, amid the applause of their fellows, about the public and newspaper criticism upon the Legislature for its inefficiency. We have no doubt a great many of the mem bers feel sere at the low esteem in which their body is held and the frequent gibes te which it is subject, but they cannot expect much else when the conduct of the joint assembly war rants no better opinion o...
