We learn irom a gentleman who bas just
n 'rived here from Florida, that the eleciions
which occurred iu ibat State last week, were
attended with more than the usual excite
ment incident lo such occasions, aDd in some
localities run so high as to culminate in
breaches of the public peace.
At Lake City, particularly, the contest be
came so heated that the friends of some of
the contestants for office were on tbe eve of a
desperate collision, when, with a view to its
suppression the U. 8. Officer of the post
without the solicitation of any one, called

This occurrence of course revived the ex
citement oUhe previous day and led to the
interchange of menacing threats between the
whites and the blacks, the latter recklessly
declaring their intention to take the life of
the gentlemen who shot the negro, and the
former holding themselves quietly in readi
ness to protect to the utmost extremity, the
life thus threatened. The officer commanding
the troops, undertook to pacily them by re
monstrances and explanations, when he was
rudely assailed with epithets and demon
strations ot insubordination, that amounted
almost to mutiny.
A prominent citizen ot the place telegraph
ed the condition ot affairs to Governor
Marvin, with the request (hat the colored
troops be removed and white troogs sent in
their stead. *To which tire Governor prompt
ly responded that tbe request would be im
mediately complied with.
These, we believe, were the only colored
troops remaining in the State, and their with
drawal as indicated by Governor Marvin,
wilt be bailed with satisfaction by the peo
ple of Lake city, at least.
W r e are indebted to our informant also for
information in regard to some of the results
of the election in- Florida.
Hon. D. S. Walker, late Associate Justice
of the Supreme Court is elected Governor
Major Kelly, of Pensacola, is supposed to
be tbe successful candidate for Lieut. Gov
Col. F. McLeod, a prominent lawyer, of
East Florida, has been elected to Congress.
The election of Governor Marvin, as one
of the United States Senators, is generally
conceded, but the public mind had not fixed
itself definitely upon his coadjutor.
One of the most important of social pio
blems in tbe United States is the moral refor
mation of criminals. The system ot both
Jail and Penitentiary confinement, with its
attendant penalties of labor and solitary se
clusion, bas failed to effect its purposes In
Georgia the question has been agitated,
whether our system of criminal reform,
through tbe agency of jails and penitentia
ries is. not so seiiously defective as to require
amendment. The idea that the penitentiary
plan of reform can be made selt-supportiDg
has, we believe, proved a delusion. Tbe
benefits have not compensated for the ex
pense. As the legislature is now in session,
their attention is imperatively directed to
this subject. The results of the war has dis
organized society. Private crime has as
sumed tearful proportions. If the preven
tives and restraints of crime were inadequate
before the war, how much moie feeble mus
they be now when the passions have been
unchained. It becomes, therefore, one of
tbe earliest duties of the legislature, not only
to revise our criminal code, but the system
of punishment for crime.
It is Dot only at the South that these de
fects in the system of punishment exhibit
themselves in the most glaring manner. The
reform in the administration of the jails and
penitentiaries at the North is exciting pro
found attention. The United States are far
behind European countries in this work of
criminal reform. In Great Britain, especial
ly, is this the case. The abolition there of the
system by which she discharged the criminal
part of her population on the shores of her
colonies, has forced her attention on those
modes of punishment that provide in her own
establishments the means of criminal refor
mation. In 1853 tbe Biitish Parliament en
acted two systems called tbe English and
Irish systems. The lormer has proved a fail
ure. The latter has led to the most satisfac
tory results, under the supervision of com
petent administrators, and what is most re
markable, the account of the practical effi
ciency of the Irish system, both as to its
principles and details, has been published by
a female, Miss Carpenter, whose work, enti
tled “Our Convicts,” is exciting great atten
tion in England.
The Irish prisons were placed in the charge
of Sir Walter Crofton, who ten years after
he reported that his plan of administration,
combining reform with punishment, had
produced 9uch favorable results that the most
hardened and obdurate criminals had been
received back into society, without distrust
or w ant of confidence in the sincerity of their
amendment. Tbe basis of his treatment, in
the language of "The Nation,” of the 23d
ult., is an appeal to bis moral nature, aud to
hope rither than fuftr. The following is a
succinct account, from tbe same work, of the
“Irish prison discipline is divided into
three stages. The first consists of cellular
imprisonment for eight or nine months. But
whether eight or nine months, depends exclu
sively upon the convict's conduct; this stage
is very penal, the object being to induce re
flection, and, if possible, contrition. Daring
the first half of this period a very low diet is
used, and for the first three months no inter
esting employment is permitted. Meanwhile
there is a great deal of time for secular and
religious instruction, the plan of the Irish
system is carefully taught, and tbe convict
leurus that ftg the luture all depends on him
self. At the end of the first period the pris
oner reaches another stage, of which the pe
culiarity is that his progress is recorded by
marks ; the principle upon which these marks
are given he bus already learned, ami he
now finds that the more laborious his atten
tion, the greater his good-will and industry,
the sooner can he reach the much desired
third or intermediate stage, socallod because
occupying a position between absolute Iree- j
dom and penal servitude, not wholly yielding 1
tuo one or strictly enforcing the other. This
stage gives character to tile system, and It Is
through such ‘intermediate’ establishments
alone that a satisfactory aud well-iested
change can he effected in this character of
criminals. Hi re there are no marks; here is
to be proved the sincerity of amendment
Here the injiviiimil is 'o he looked at, ami for

to spend part of tbe small sums they are al
lowed to earn by industry aud good beha
vior. Natural meaus are used as far as
practicable. ‘ ino more restraint is used
than would be necessary in any well-regu
lated establishment.’ (And this tests at once
the efficacy of tbe methods iu the previous
stages.) The officers work with the con
victs, are unarmed, aud in small force. Phy
sical restraint, or even its possibility, is ex
cluded, and, iudeed, the use or possibility of
force wonld be ‘ inconsistent with the princi- j
pies' which the intermediate establishments i
‘ were instituted to enunciate.’ The object |
is to prove to the convict Jhat he is tealiy to
be credited with tbe improvement be has
shown in obtaining marks.”
The same journal goes on to observe:
“ Here in America we feel well satisfied
with our prisons. There is no reason for
such satisfaction, fer our prisons do not at
tain their object. A prison is, properly, a
reformatory, a moral hospital. Ours are
schools of crime. Says a committee of the
Prison Association of New York :
“ *lf an institution should be established
in every county of the State with the inscrip
tion over the door, ‘ Vice and crime taught
here,’ and the processes within corresponded
to the announcement without, this commit
tee is impressed witii the conviction that the
of manufacturing criminals could
scarcely be more effectually done than it is
by our jail system, as at present organized
* * * * * * *
“The penitentiaries are better; it is to
their improvement, indeed, that the chief
attempts at reform have been directed, the
jails remaining the same schools of vice as
before. Almost every man or woman who
issues from the lormer has been at various
times an inmate of the latter, and the folly of
endeavors to stop crime by reforming the
criminal in hia last stage, wlien be is encour
aged in it during all tne first stages, is evi
dent. Until our jails are radically changed,
we cannot hope for any great diminution
of the ‘ dangerous classes;’ until the promis
cuous association ol young and old, good and
bud, criminals aud witnesses against crimi
nals, is abolished, we must expect a ‘ foetid,
seething mass of mutudi contamination ami
pollution ;’ uutil short sentences ate abolish
ed, we must expect repeated sentences ; un
til we admit that a register for crime is at
least as essential as one for mortgages, no
one need despair of being tolerably success
ful in tbe profession of crime; until we make
a distinction .between children and harden
ed offenders, we must expect hardened of
fenders. Too much cannot be said as to the
necessity of a change in these respects. The
effect ot short sentences, without registration,
is, that with proper precautions men commit
crime after crime and run through prison af
ter prison before being arrested for any
length of time; that when they at length re
ceive a long sentence, so matured in wicked
ness are they that reformation is almost im
possible. But what is to be said of our
children ? A boy of twelve is committed to
prison with the burglar of years' practice.
We bad better have two hundred and twenty
felonies on our statute-book agaio, and hang
a boy of twelve tor tbe theft of a shilling,
than do this. We educate the rich, the vir
tuous, the prosperous, in knowledge afld
goodoess; our poor, our ignorant, our vi
cious, our starving we educate in crime, in
vice, in lust. We succeed admirably with
both classes. Schools finish one; jails the’
other. This crytug evil must be remedied.”
EXAMINATION AND DECLARATION OP 6TEPHF.N3,
THE HEAD CENTRE IN DUBLIN.
The investigation into the charge against
James Stephens, the Head Centre ot Feuian
ism in Ireland, and ihe three persons who
were arrested in his house at Sandymount,
was resumed at Dublin, before Mr. Stronge.
Tbe evidence was chiefly documentary’, and
did not involve any new feature of special in
At the close of the case for the prosecution
the magistrate said :—Mr. Stephens, Mr.
Brophy and Mr. Edward Duffy, you are
charged with confederating aud conspiring
with others to levy war against the Queen,,
to establish a republic in this country, and to
separate it from England I am ready to
hear you if you have anything to say, but at
tbe same time it is my duty, under the statute,
to caution you that if you say anything to
criminate yourselves it will be taken down
aud given in evidence against you. I may
tell you that you are not bound to say any
thing. What do you say, Mr. Stephens '/ 1
am ready to take —
Stephens—l am under the that

Mr. Stronge—the case is closed against you.
Previous to ray stating what decision I have
arrived at, I wish to know if you desire to

doing. The case is so clear, prima fade, that
I shall be bound lo commit you.
Mr. Lawlessjsuggested that tlie prisoner
should abstnin from ranking any statement.
Stephen: —»\ r ou look on this matter as a
lawyer, but I look on it as a patriot.
Mr. Stronge—l need not remind you that
there are a great many others involved in
Stephens—l am sure to get as much credit
for the other gentlemen as anything else;
aud if I say anything at all, I feel bound to
Mr. Stronge—l shall be bound to take
down what you say in reference to this
Stephens—Certainly, take it down. I feel
bound to say, with the view to my own
reputation, that I have employed no attor
ney or lawyer in this case, aud that I mean
to employ none, because in making a plea
or defence of any kind 1 should be recog
nizing British law in Ireland. Now I de
liberately and conscientiously repudiate the
existence of that law in Ireland, its right or
even its existence. ■
Mr. Stronge—That is, you repudiate the
existence of that law ?
Stephens—l repudiate the right of its ex
istence in Ireland, and defy any punishment,
and despise any punishment that can be in
flicted on me. 1 have spoken.
Mr. Stronge—Then I apprehend that, with
reference to the charge against you, you
make no statement!
Mr. Strune—That is as regards—
Stephens—l have said all I meaa to say.
Mr. Stronge—And you make no further
Stephens, in reply to au observation of Mr.
' Lawless, said :—You are looking at it lrorn a
luwyer’s point of view. (To Mr. Barry)—l
mean no offence, gentlemen.
Mr. Stronge—Mr. Duffy, lrnvo you any
thing to say ?
Mr. Stronge asked Bropby if ho had any
thing to say.
Brophy—Have you any further evidence ?
Mr Si rouge said that they had nothing to
do wiilt that at present.
