have ordered all this to be removed, and all landlords
whose houses are in filthy conditon (and they are
numbered by thousands) are to be enjoined to have
them immediately cleansed under heavy penalties.—
The police are instructed to visit every house and
back-yard in this city, much to the disgust of certain
people who have not been over careful as to the
cleanliness of their premises. Some of the experi
ences of the police have been extremely ludicrous,
and as related at the station-houses excite much mer
riment. One old woman, who owned a pig and kept
it in her room, put a postage stamp on his (the pig’s,
not the officers) snout, and then defied the “limb of
the law” to remove the porker at his peril! Pigs will
have to live out of doom now.
A MODERN HERCULES
turned up to-day and wanted the Board of Health ’Ho
give him a job. His plan, as he unfolded it to the as
tonished official Samaritans was to erect immense force
pumps at convenient points on both sides of the city,
and pour great volumes of water into our streets, al
most virtually turning the courses of the East and
North rivers into our modern municipal Augean Sta
ble, thus in a small way imitating Hercules in turning
the river Perreus. It is sufficient to say his plan was

A VIGILANCE COMMITTEE
is being organized over in Williamsburg, and they
hold their first meeting to-night. The “Burg,” as it
is called, now a part ot the city of Brooklyn, and has
been the scene during the past year of more lawless
ness, murder, robbery, rapine, arson, burglary, gar-
roting, and highway depredations than this big city of
New York. It is Joss than three weeks that a large
crowd of roughs created a riot which lasted several
hours, during which several stores were -completely
gutted, their proprietors beaten, and not until some
two hundred police arrived from New York was the
riot quelled. A few days since, in broad day light, a
jewelry shop on tho principal street was entered by
two ruffians, who murdered the proprietor, took all
the jewelry they could carry and left, since which they
have not been seen. Children are robbed of their
clothing, ladies have not only their purses snatched
but their furs and capes taken from them; and no
citizen thinks «f retiring at night without his brace of
revolvers under his pillow. It is a nice place—is Wil
liamsburg—and a vigilance committee is sorely needed.
escaped justice a few days ago in Brooklyn through
the agency of his counsel in a manner which has led
to much speculation among the respectable citizens of
that city as to whether somebody was not culpable, or
whether the laws are defective. Your readers will re
member that a vessel was boarded while at anchor in
East river, by river pirates, a class of scoundrels quite
numerous. The captain of the vessel and his mate
were murdored by them. The murderer was arrested,
a true bill found against him,—when his counsel had
him taken before a judge on a writ of habeas corpus,
and demanded his release on the ground that the crime
was committed in another county! The Judge re
leased him—he has not been heard of since !
THE SAND-liAU GAME
has been revived here, and will probably be exported
from this to j our city bj' the villains who have been
practising garroting lately. Two robberies have been
committed through the instrumentality of this instru
ment in our thoroughfares. The process is simply a
blow on the top of the head with a rubber bag about
two feet long and six inches iu diameter filled with
sand—the victim sinks noisely, stunned by the vio
lence and suddenness of the blow. The robbers then
“go through” him—leave him prone, and the police
find a lifeless carcass which requires hours of hard
work by physicians to resuscitate.
A HEAVY OPERATION,
is reported about town, which reflects but little
credit on the operators interested. It appears that an
immense number of old brass and iron cannon were
recently purchased of the government at an auction
sale, the purchaser^ paying two and a half cents per
pound for them. During the past week the purchaser
sold them to an agent ot one of the revolutionary
enterprises now in vogue, for eighteen cents per
pound, the pay to be one-half in bonds, the other half
cash. So far it may be considered a good business
transaction—but, here’s the questionable part of the
affair—the agent die ides the half cash with the person
ot whom he bought the cannon, thus pocketing a very
large sum of money, and tho other nearly doubling
his money originally paid, beside holding an immense
sum in bonds, which may, perhaps, (!) be of value in
less than a hundred years. Whether these cannon,
which have awoke flic echoes of the southern hills,
will ever send iron missiles among the halls of the
Montczumas or assist in placing the “green” over
the “ red,” deponent saith not.

The Reciprocity Treaty.
The treaty between the United States and Great
Britian regulating the trade between this country and
the British Provinces of North America expires on the
17th proximo. A conference has been held at Wash
ington between the British commissioners and the'
Committee of Ways and Means with a view to adjust
the points in con trovers}' at which there was an ample
discussion of all the <vmf 0 i.nn«». rca —^
were unable to agree, and separated after an exchange
of civilities and not without the hope that at no dis
tant day that the negotiations may be resumed with a
better prospect of a satisfactory result. The proposi
tions submitted by Mr. Morrill, the chairman of the
Committee on Ways and Means, were without any
features of reciprocity. The colonial delegates were
anxious to establish the principle of reciprocitj’ bj'
making the duties equal on both sides of the border
Mr. Galt, tho head of the colonial delegation, observ
ing, “ Of course you do not desire that we should not
put the same duties on articles which we import from
you which you intend to put on those articles when
imported from us. ” In reply to the remark of Mr.
Morrill “ That we did not admit that the basis of the
Mr. Morrill—No. I fear, however, that our manu
factures are so taxed with cumulative duties that we
cannot send you much as as cheap as you can get it
elsewhere or make it. Your Canadian tariff operates
against us. Has it not been changed since the treaty ?|
Mr. Galt—Our customs law is the same in principle
i the American. We pay duties on the value of
articles at the place of purchase.
Mr. Morrill—Has not your system been changed
from specific^ ad valorem duties.
Mr. GalL—No, uot as a whole. When you raised
your duties on certain leading articles of import, we
were enabled to do the same. We then taxed sugar,
tea. &c., on the ad valorem principle, and more highly
than before. We had always wanted to do so, but
could not, until circumstances enabled it to be done
without endangering a serious loss of revenue by
After some further conversation it was agreed to take
up the free list under the treaty and see what articles
Mr. Morrill was willing to deal with on the principle
of taxing them when imported at a rate equivalent to
the pressure of the internal revenue duties of the
There were thirteen articles on the free list that Mr.
Morrill was willing to admit with no higher duty than
the pressure of the United States internal revenue tax.
The Tariff Laws Unconatutional.
Mr. Brooks, one of the committee of Ways and
Means, during the conference with the Canadian Del’
egates asked Mr. Morrill the following question :
“In making the reciprocity treaty how did you get
over the reciprocal treaties we had made with other
Mr. Morrill—-I claim that we never Mid get over
them, that the treaty was unconstitutional.
Mr. Brooks—You mean it was against our treaties,
not against our constitution.
Mr. Morrill—Yea, it was unconstitutional; it in
terfered with the action of the House of Representa
tives in matters of trade.
The treaty was indeed submitted to the House, but
it was a matter of courtesy, not of necessity. A
treaty, if made in pursuance of the constitution, is
the supreme law of the land. For instance, we passed
a law tho other day against the importation of cattle,
but I think it was altogether null and void, forit con
travened a treaty. . . . T
Mb. Brooks—It is a moot question how far the
Senate can interfere with a treaty. , > ^
Mr. Galt—Are you not now making a treaty or
commerce with some northern Power—Germany or
Mr. Henry—You have been making special treaties
for half a century past, and you have gone lately as far
as China to do it.
Mb. Bbooks—The question ie, how far a tariff can
be regulated by a treaty.
Mb. Henby—Is there anything in your constitution
to prevent your giving more favorable terms to one
country than to another ?
Mb. Smith—This constitutional question does not
arise now, however. You do not propose to deal with
the subject by treaty, but by legislation.
Mb. —The principle of the Reciprocity treaty
was that the articles placed on the free list were the
productions of the two contracting parties, neither of
whom imported them from abroad. We, on our side,
never imposed any duty on importations from other
countries of those articles which we admitted free
under the treaty from you.
Mb. Mobbill—Under ordinary circumstances we
should have no difficulty in making these articles free
to all parts of the world. I doubt whether we could
D °The points of difference, as regards tho duties, more
in relation to coal, fish and grain. The delegates in.
sisted that the object of the United States was Protcc
tion and not Revenue.
Mb. Galt—With reference to the fishery question
the rates of duty make no difference to Canada—wo
buy fish from you, we don’t sell to you in any quanti
ty. The considerations we received in, *“"ner
treaty for.giving'yoti the right .of fishing, were the
general arrangements of the treaty with reference to
our products, and no reduction in tlie rates of duty
on fish would alter tbe feeling of Mr. Howland -'and
Mb. Henby—True. There was a feeling with us^and
it iB reviving, that in that treaty the interests of Nova
Scotia were bartered away to get a good bargain for
Mb. Galt—Twenty-five per cent, on flour, twenty
cento on wheat, 15 cents on barley—these rates are so
high as to be absurd.
Mb. Henby—How much duty do you expect to get
out of them at these rates ?
Mr. Mokbill—Our rates are fixed solely with a view
to revenue. We expect to get it on barley and upon
wheat. We don’t expect to get much npon flour, for
the duty is put so as to bring tbe wheat in Metis and
to encourage our own people to grind it.
LETTER FROM WASHINGTON.
The strong terms in which Mr. Sumner expressed
himself in regard to the proposed, amendment to the
ConBtiiation, in regard to the b«ia pf representa

as an unworthy abandonment of principle. His
speech has evidently produced an impression. It in

Grant manifests the most liberal and magnanimous
spirit towards the south. This is, I think, more hon

The Blairs, father and son, Francis P. and his son
Montgomery, have acted with most generous ami
liberal spirit to many people from the south, who,
from being involved iu the war, needed influential ad
vocates at Washington. I heard a Maryland south
ern sympathiser speaking on this point, -toy it was
impossible to say how much the Blairs had done for
southern people. I think this fact so much to their
honor ought to be generally known. Francis P. Blair

Mauy friends of Gen’l Lee had hoped that as under
the constitution only the life estate can be sold ; the
family estate at Arlington would some day be restored
to the heirs of Gen’l Lee, but there is oiie difficulty in
the way, the property was bought in by the govern
ment not under proceediuga of confiscation, but under
a sale for taxes, such tax sale transfers' the fee simple,
and not merely the life estate of Gen’l Lee. There is
no way by which the estate can be restored. Suppos
