Cleaning the Streets. Yesterday was the day fixed for the commencement of the new system of cleaning the streets of Philadelphia by contract. We have already published in our local columns a full _acconnt of the duties imposed upon those who have undertaken this task, and every citizen is more or less interested in seeing that they are faithfully discharged. Many of our streets are now in a shocking and truly disgraceful condition, and the public should watch, with great care, to see to what extent the new change acts as a real reform. _If ew brooms, it is said, sweep clean, and, for a short time, at least, we suppose the contractors will faithfully fulfil their obligations. The first evidence of a neglectful disposition on their part, however, should be at once noticed, and the proper remedies invoked.

Editorial Convention* Next "Wednesday, the annual meeting of Pennsylvania editors will take place at Lancaster. Circumstances prevented a meeting last year, so the gathering will probably be very large this time. "We have not heard what arrangements, if any, are completed op contemplated for the Lancaster meeting. It would be desirable if something more than social enjoyment were to spring out of this editorial union. A Benefit Society, for the members of the Union, conld easily be organized, and would be found extremely useful. The editors, also, might collect and contribute materials for a History ef the Newspaper Press of Pennsylvania, which would be a work of infinite importance, in many peints of view.

Guard House* The public will learn with regret that the Girard House, a hotel which has been a credit to this city for several years, will be closed on the first of March. The lessees frankly confess that the falling off of travel, during the last year, and other causes, made the concern cease to be profitable. Ho doubt, Messrs. Pbesbtjby, Stkes, & Chadwick win carry their capital, talents, and business habits into some occupation which will more amply remunerate them. They carry with them, on their retirement, the good will and best wishes of"troops of fr iends " —of all, in fact, who have had personai experience of the comforts and enjoyment of the Girard House.
