It la Lla intention to carry tho matter to tho Supremo Court for final decision. A solution of tho transportation question was offered yesterday by President Alien, of the Hall way Association now mooting in Now York, and consisting of Superintendents of Southern rail ways. Ho said the farmers must bo flanked by according them os many of their demands aspoa alble without Injuring railway interests. Up to tho point of loss, tho railways must reduce their rates os much ao possible. This is certainly a lino of attack by which tho farmers can ho flank ed without being defeated, and by which both contestants might gain tho victory. Tho system of grain inspection fastened on tho Chicago Inspectors by tho State Legislature Booms to bo creating more and more dissatisfac tion among tho shippers along tho canal. Yes terday tho shippers of Joliet, Peru, and inter vening places mot and resolved that they would escape tho grievance of which Ihoy complain by sending their groin East by tho Joliet Cut-off. Tills mauy of them havo already begun to do, and to what extent appears from tho statement that one hundred car-loads of grain wore shipped In this way by one Aim in four days. Tho Canada Pacific Kailway Investigating Committee, which has neglected to moot for Bovoral days, has boon peremptorily ordered by the Dominion Parliament to reassemble. This action la caused by tho discovery of some letters which glvo tangibility to tho charges of corrup tion against Sir Hugh Allan, tho President of tho Canada Pacific Hallway. It is said Ihoy provo that tho Oovornruonl awarded him and bis associates tho contract for building tho road in aouaUlocatloa of thoir expenditure of $360,000 to carry tho elections for tho Oovornmout. Thoro can ho no doubt that tho Carlisle, at tho battle of Puolto do Eraul, on tho oth Inst., gained a great victory,—a victory all the greater beeauso it was snatched from defeat. Thoir Gen.

In bis official report, Gen. porreiarar outs the loss of tho BooubUcws at 112 killed, 800 wounded, ami 00 prisoners. Ho lost 18 killed and 97 wounded. The White Star iluo of ocean sloatnors has Just avoided, by good luck, what might havo re sulted in Boflous disaster. The steamer Ocoauio, which 1 sailed for Liverpool' it week ago, was obliged to return before she hjtdpasaod Sandy Hook, owing to a oraok in one of her oyllndbrs. Fortunately. the Accident happened in tlroo to prevent any serious damage. But suppose It had occurred In mid-ocean, or during a heavy gale, whore it could not have boon practicable to repair the oraok I Again, what kind of 'lnspec tion was it that allowed tho vessel to.depart? Tho foot that this crack was discovered be fore she hod gone twenty miles does not speak very well for Jtho thoroughness with which this Company examinee its vessels. Having boon warned by one terrible disaster, common prudence should havo dictated to them to bo rigidly careful in tho future on all points.

HESING’S NEW DEPARTURE. The mass meeting of tho Gormans of tho Seventeenth Ward, which was hold on Wednes day evening, is probably worth moro attention than is usually given to ward meetings. It seems to ho the first atop in a now political do- parturo of .the Gorman citizens of Chicago, widely has been carefully and deliberately organ ized. In Us local bearings, the movement is an outgrowth of tiie. qnforco.mont of the Sunday ordinance, though ii may roach out into a broader political field before it comes to a stop,! Tor many years post, and under almost every city administration, there have boon faint efforts to enforce this law, but nqno so , persistent- ond * successful os the present, Tho agitation of tho question dates hack .several months, when Mr." Henry Clrflonohaum organized Ida Law and Order” committees for tho suppression of crime, This movement was ‘diverted from ila original purpose of exorcising an influouco upon juries and courta to that of closing tho saloons on Sunday. Tho tomporanco men took hold of it, and ultimately uccnrodtho co-operation of tho Mayor autl tho City Government. The saloons have boon closed ou Sunday more generally thau over before, and Ibo enforcement of the ordi nance has boon equally strict as against the Gor man boor-saloons of the North Bido. The policy boa naturally incited tbo opposition of the Gor mans, who have nover before boon seriously mo loalod in their Sunday boor,' and they have some how concluded that the Republican party is re sponsible for what they regard an infringement of tboir rights. This sentiment of opposition suddenly .broke into fovor hoat a couple of weeks ago, when the Mayor revoked the license of one Fisher, who keeps a boor-garden on the North Side, near Lincoln Park. Fisher's placo is represented to have boon reputable, and a favor ite place of resort for Gorman families of a Sun day afternoon and evening. . Mia busi ness during the remainder of the.week was unimportant, and to keep open at all with profit was to keep opon on Sunday. Tho Germans hold that tho revocation of his license was a direct blow at.tbpm and- tholr national customs, since they bad reason to boliovo that liquor-saloons all over tho cityworo prootlcally open for, Uquor soUing, and because Fisher's licousowou tho only ono that had boon revoked for a broach of the ordinance. Tho Mayor subsequently restored Fisher’s license on the promise that ho would dodo Sundays, but this action docs not scorn to have allayed the excitement among the Gormans. Ou tho morning after tho revoking of Fisher’s license, tho SJnafa-2dfuno printed a loading arti cle arraigning tho Republican party for its •‘Mucker” proclivities, and calling upon the 1 Gormans to organize outside of It for tho pur pose of electing next fall a Council opposed to tho Sunday ordinance. This article was regarded au rather following tho Gorman sentiment than as an attempt to lead it. Tho mooting of i Wednesday night was the first movement toward organization under the plan proposed. Messrs. Hosing, Knoblesdorff, Francis A. Hoff mann, Jr.,and others, there gave expression to Boutiraenta that havo been freely and generally ' declared among tho Gormans for some weeks back. Their utterances were broader, probably, than tho facts will warrant in denouncing the ; Americans generally as Know-Nothings. The 6V idfli\t oxoitoment of the speakers made them , ignore in part the real merits of tho controversy, t, which-concerns .the right of Gormans to drink . beer o& Sunday. Tholr Intention to contest this t rtsht at the pplli wag clearly brought out. how* over, and ilioro onn bo no doubt that tho privi lege which they propose to oxorolso is legitimate. Tho .programme of tho now movement la pretty clearly defined, though Mr. Hosing, who lo tho loader, only gave a vague indication of it In UP j speech. Ab this speech is reported lu tho&ap Zcilung, Mr. Hosing repeated a conversation be tween himself and an American citizen, P x n m c h the latter accused him of desiring to * JtQ alc up the Republican party, and called upo» 4 blm to re member what that party had done ‘•’f or Gor maus. “Aud you must romom’ Jor> .. answered Mr. Hosing, pertinently, tUo Gormano have done for you." Further on, following tho Slaats-Zcihtng report of thr, B1)0 och, Mr. Iloalug said: It Is tbo Interest and tU* lluly of (110 German Repub- Hcsns, who have hereto*/- bcon Ju !110 nlft j or u y , to lottboDonaocralaambf jo Lllktalb stop lo.lbo fore ground, to give tlirgo t| lo custody of tho offices, It makes no dlitorr, A c(* i mo un( i or what banner Igo into tho u /j lo fj ft g only waves on to victory. Tho whole yea tho whole country, is look ing to Ohl’jago jit this moment full of expectation. ■ For tho cans ~ f or which wo fight Is not only tho cause of lb° Q®'rman, but the cause of the workingman. And eveny Qormon who is not with us In this cause is a tr* 4 tor lo Qermauklnd. ' Everybody will recognize that those utterances are significant, though tholr Import needs ex planation. Locally, it moans this: That iho Gormans shall break off from tho Republican party, allow tho Democrats to mnko tho noxt ticket for city officers, and then (support and elect tho men whom thoy shall ‘ put forward. This, In brief, Is Mr. Hosing's programme. Ho does not - stand alono in tho departure. Ho counts among his co-laborers most.of tho county officials in Cook County and all the Republicans who owe their places to Mr. nosing’s infliionco. Ho also counts a largb numbob of tho \uon poliUcal Oormouß, who Uwo freely • declared of late that thoy “wllluoror voto tho Republican ticket ogaiiu” Tho movomout is fairly Among tho Incidental .efforts is that of tho Gormans and Irish in tho full campaign, a which will bo an uwiortaldng of diffiouUy. Tho programme has been shrewdly*] outlined, and foreshadows a powerful andll formidable local organization. j Whether or not Mn. Hosing and his propose to oxtoud.thls movement against tho; Republican party boyond tbo limits of Chicago,fj remains to bo soon. Thoro aro several circum-l Ktanoos that wouldtmdicatb osmuoh* Whoa Mr.JJ Hosing spooks of tho whole Northwest and tho* whole country as watching tho Chicago move-1 mont* oxpootautly, ho would sorjfo to ludioato goufjral movement of tho same*'nature to throughout iho country, audita robuko what tho Germans regard as tho Pr.titan olomontlu tho' Republican party. This would also bo reached from Mr. • Honing's expression i “ Thoro oro no and Oakos Amoses among ua [*. c., the ’Gormans], and, if thoro I wore any, thoy would *6o tjhrowu overboard with contempt, and no public* rccoptions would bo prepared for them M forva Colfax.” It is not to bo supposed that oo staunch a party roan os Mr. Hcsing would tr,ko this position unless ho saw , signs elsewhere of a ga acral breaking up of parties. It l a too*oarly to say how much' this revolt will amount,to, but it is entirely fit-, ting that/the quoation*of Sunday boor m Chi cago should ho docldodtou its own merits, end not nd.xod up with tho issues of roconstructiou in Louisiana, oo tho Modoo wav in Oregon. •LAWEENCE-CHAIG. Wo print a> very calinrand considerate address ’issued by tb o ofilcoi-s of tho Knox County Agri cultural upon tho subject of tho judicial o’ lection. Tho address is directed to tho farmerai of tho Fifth Supremo Judicial District. It is written by goutlomou who are personally ac quaint ad with Judge Lawrence and his cora ,r, Mr. A. M. Craig. It refers to .the his tory of both. Tho public life of Judge Law rence baa boon exclusively at the. Bar apd on tho Brjnoh. Twolvo or moro years ago, ho was •'elected Circuit Judge In Warren and Knox Counties, and so acceptable was ho os a Judge; and bo conspicuous was ho for his personal ‘lntegrity aud fitness for tho office, that ho was nine years-ago designated by the general wish of all mon*of all parties for tho office of Judge jof the Supremo Court, and upon»tho presenta tion of his name ho was elected without any • formal opposition. During his term tho has won ' tho highest rospoct-aud odmiration fonhis learn- ing, Ida ability, anttyhis integrity,—tho throe de sirable qualities iu a. Judge. Tho oddrosa gives tho history of-hla action in tho caao of tho Chi- cago A Alton llailway Company. Tho.decision waa mado byttho unanimouaconourronco'of tho nino Judges,—not a dieaonting volco on tbo lionch, From tluahmuauabunanlmlty it follows,, that tho Hootlons or tho act of tho Legislature in volved iu that coao'woro ao badly constructed that no other decision was possible. Had tho Court taken tho responsibility of deciding oth erwise, it is roosounblodo auppoao* that tho Su premo Court of tho United Stales would have overruled it. Tho decision iu tho Chicago «fc Alton llailway caao avoided two years’ delay. It enabled tho Court to point out tho. defects of * tho law of 1869, so that tho Legislature, then in ‘session, could amend improperly. Tho decision of tho Court was Hko-a flood of light to tho Legisla ture, and tho P armors’ Convonlion at Spring field substantially indorsed it. Tho now law may bo said to havo originated with tho Supremo Court. It certainly was indicated in tho opinion delivered by Judge Lawrence, and, when cases tried uudor that law come boforo tho Bupromo Court for revision, tho wisdom of tho dociuion in tho Alton Bailway case will ho evident. This address states tho point involved in this choioo of Judge—whether it Is not bettor to have a Court that will render judgment that will stand lire in the court of last resort, and will not bo overruled on appeal, than to have a Court that will render judgments that cannot bo sustained.’ 4 Wo invito a careful reading of tho review of tho public life of Mr. Craig, whoso professional business has boon chlclly that of a railroad at torney, and whoso election to-day over Judge Lawrence would not bo mourned by any monopoly whatsoever. Tho Convention which selected Mr. Craig as a candidate was gotten up In a most extraordinary way. It was pached by persons 1 having no constituencies, and was manipulated by station agents and others having close and direct relations with railways. It did not repre sent tho farmers as a class, and, as tho signors of the address say, Is not regarded as of tho least importance by the farmers of Knox County. The War Department has done a very ungra cious thing in advertising for sale a number of Bovolutlonary relies. Tho national honor mast havo sunk to a very low pitch when it cares no longer to bo reminded of the bravo deeds of our ancestors, and gives publlonotlco to junk-dealers that Jpr a paltry sum they can carry off tbb guns an<3 other national trophies captured at Saratoga and yofktqwn. Those mementoes which are thus offered for sale ore in tjio Watorvllet Arsenal, and embrace English howitzer? oast In 1711. hav- lUBUNE: FRIDAY, MAY 10, r iBV& tllg up tOU them tho arms of the tlio Throe IClng do&'ja, and captured by Mad Anthony Wayne at akormlng of Stony Point 5 • a half-dozen field piccoß of tho French Revolution, cast In 1703, eachbearingthemotto of that struggle, “Lib orto, Egallto guua of tho French monarchy of Louis XVI., cast in Strasbourg, with tho Bour bon arms upon thorn ; and tho slogo guns sur rendered to tho American forces by tho Conven tion of Saratoga, in 1777, and at tho capitulation of Yorktown, in 1701. Those tlmo-honorod relies of tho Revolution and mementoes of tho ttmea that tclod mem's cauls tako up hut littlo room, and cannot bririg to tho Government more than a palWy sum. Tho loss in honor and national respect cannot bo offset by tbo insignificant sum which will result from tholr sale. After'tho mercenary greed and corruption : which have run riot in every department of the Government during the past throe or four years, It is not surprising tbatapolnt'hasotlast boon reached whore tho Government does not care to bo reminded of those days when honesty and patriotism were held in greater esteem than fraud aud corrup tion. It is duo to tho memory of tho -past, and to tho glorious oVonts of our Revolutionary his tory, that the State of New York should now stop In and buy those relics which the General Gov ernment docs not care to preserve, and thus par tially avert a national disgrace.

There should be no assumption that all tbo responsibility In this matter rests with tho last Congress. Members ought to ho bold to account for tho establishment of tho pay and for lis'chntluuanco. Let those who decline to vote its reduction suffer with those who created tho increase. This is Ml right, aud wo aro prepared to con cede that tho House will promptly, perhaps on tho first day of. tho session, and unanimously withal, voto tho ropoal. But thoro is tho Bon ato; aud just thoro is the rub. Everybody knows how couvoniont a fonco tho Sonato is when any " sjvag "isto bo got away with. Lot it ouco bo understood, however, that no member of Congress gets ro-oleotod as long as this sal ary stool oadiiros, —positively no member, no matter bow bis vote is recorded, —and wo shall boo whothor tho House permits a ropoal bill to slumbor unto death in tho Senate. Just now and hero is a good opportunity to tcaoh Oon grossmon a losson thoy will not forgot, —Tho Wheeling (W. Vo.) Intelligencer was a Bopublioan newspaper before ever, tho Bopubli cans had patronage to.bostow, and Is now a Bo publican newspaper. It says: Tho Republican party cannot boused with Impunity, much lots can tho military power of (ho Government, merely to promote tho ascendency of a faction in one of tho States because that faction Is In sympathy with the party In control of the Government, and' its loaders con bo useful to the Administration. Such an assumption la too dangerous , to bo tolcr atod for a moment. Yet this is Just about tho stato of tho caso lu Louisiana. Under such circumstances those Journals which never allow thomsclvAs to censure the wrong-doing of their friends are reticent; but the truth Is, this Louisiana broil Is disgraceful to the Ad ministration and dangerous to tho peace and good feeling of tho people lu Louisiana, and In other States; and the truth ought to bo so plainly spoken that by no possibility could tho error in this case ever bo used as a precedent for a like employment of arbitrary, power elsewhere. * —Tho inquiry cannot bo too often raised, or too urgently pressed homo to tho Republican .party managers, why, in Michigan, it was ‘ need ful to smother all Investigation of fraud' In tho Stato-Land Office; why, in Minnesota, a long career of fraud and corruption in tho Stato Treasury should end with a small farce, and thd fraud go on, perhaps, with a change of hands; and why, in lowa, a guilty Stato Treasurer, who stood confessed a thief, was denied tho privilege of answering to his name in tho criminal dock. ■ —Hero is the advice of the Now York Timca to the President, pertinent to tho selection of a Judge: , . No severer blow could bo struck to tbo reputation Of tbu Supremo Court, or to tbo stability of tuo Govern ment, than au oven plausible suspicion of railway in fluence lu tbu Court. Fortunately, tbo course dic tated by tho plainest considerations of general duty Is one which would make It impossible for tho President to err lu this respect. He has only to make suro of a nominee of such recognized high character, and such proven capacity, as tuo place requires, to make any schemes tho railways may bo hatching of no avail. . —Senator Conkling loomed up grandly in con nection with the, obsequies of the late Chief Justice at Washington, lie rode in the second carriage of tho Executive division of tho funeral cortege, accompanied only by Mrs; Grant. >Hr.

Having thus conouiououslv assisted tho Administration in its last sad attentions to tho deceased Chief Justice, Mr. Conkling would appear, from tho more force of circumstances, to occupy on attitude of first assistant In tho grave duty of selecting a successor. —Ulica (AT.

They preferred to violate tho ordinance with their Monroe street bouse, on a> count of tho custom to bo derived from tho au dience at MoVlckor’s Theatre, which does not let out until 11 o'clock or thereabouts. It is natu ral to suppose that a man who sits through a throo hours’ performance by MoViokor’s stock company will bo either thirsty ,or hungry, Mr. Qoro remained in tho saloon during the evening, In order that his employes might not be bold responsible for tho firm's ouonso. Shortly after 11 o'clock two police men entered, ono at tho front door and another at tho roar, both doom being wido open. There woro tbroo bar tenders bard at work attending to tho wants of a numbor of customers. Tho policeman notified them that it was past closing timo.

The of ficers sought out that goutloman, and, upon find ing him, remarked for tho third timo that tbo 11 o'clock ordinance was in forco, and so forth. Mr. Qoro replied that ho was fully awaro of that foot, I and was intentionally violating tho law for pur iposoß of his own. Tho officers said it pained •thorn to tako him into custody, bub duty was {duty, as Mr, Goro very well know, undoubtedly.

Ho claims that the Olby Government has Just as much rlgbt to close up his place of busi ness at G o’clock in tbo evening au at 11 o’clock at night, and it would seem that a very respectable numbor of citizen#) exclusive of saloon-Keopors, Ugreo with him.
