The Pistrict Jndiciar; . The judiciary of the District of Columbia yesterday became tbe subject of eery bitter animadversion In the tours- of the Senate's proceedings The 00081*00 wai the consideration of joint resolutions proposed by Mr. Wilson, directing tbe liberation of certain negroes now confined in the Washington jail. The condition of that prison was very justly censured with grent severity, with as much as that with which the grand jury for th a county have censured It, tertu after term, for yean past, in their customary presentments with reference to It. In thus censuring It. tbe grand juries have always taken occasion to poi.it out the feet that Congress was justly chargeable with the responsibility for the shameful evils of which they complalncd. Not once, but twenty times, :n the las! decade, have the grand jury besought Congress to make the neceaaarv appropriation to enable the Marshal cf the District to make the Waah n^ton jail somewhat more comfortable and de'eterious to tbe health of those confined in it, than "an Austrian dungeon." But they have always so appealed in vain. Now that the attentl< n of so nsnny Senators is o zealously turned to the subject, it is to be hoped that Congress will no lunger leave it in ltschronlc deplo abie condition. We are smong those who believe that the class of laws of the District mfe'fiMfrrni Maryland half a century ago, which ^ ere r-psterday denounced as its ''black code," should be a.nended as sovn as possible. They certainly afford opportunities for extortion from and oppression of negroes by unprincipled magistrates, county officers and policemen, who will always ex;?t where the law affords them such opportunities In this matter this community has been wholly at the mercy c.f Congress, and has suffered accordingly In making those changes. It is to be hoped that the views 0f Senator Fes Meden, wherein he urged ? that the whole subject would be properly and fully dealt with." and added that be " favored nothing but a lawful ?nd constitutional course on the subject, ' and *lso that"the legal rights existing in this connection he would wish to regard* mete I ni> out Jus. tlce and discriminating as to facts," will be strictly kept in view. If sweeping changes are to be made In tLe principles of the laws of this District in the tone and temper manifested by more than one Senator yesterday, they will be made solely for political effect elsewhere and Without proper regard for Ihe well being of the community being legiaiated for. w *fcill cheerfully sustain thoughtful, wei.-b-jlaar.rd and discriminating changes in our whole judiciary system, we shall deprecate anything tfce sort which are likely to be neither Jnore nor lets than revolutionary experiments at the expense of the only community lawfully at the mercy, in such matters, of the ex per! mentors A few years since an effort at judicial reform Was essayed here As It Involved [in the shape of the adoption of a new code] completely doing away with all the laws under which our fellowcitizens had lived since the first settlement of the country, and as acqulesence in It was left optional with the people, of course It failed, as might have been expected. Nevertheless, this opportunity to reform our Judiciary In man/ essential particulars should be Improved. Let Congress, on consultation with numbqps of those interested in tbe social Condition and business prosperity of the Federal ^metropolis enact the necessary reform*, one by one, as necessity for them may be brought to their notice. This can be done to great advantage to our community, and to the relief of Congress from the stigma that new justly rests upon It for Its persistent neglect of its duty to the DIs. rlct In this particular, for a long series of years. Comxodobk Tatwall.?The Savannah papers state that Commodore Tatnall weut down to attack the Federal vessels at Tybee. but after 'ring at them for some time, and being unable to decoy them under the guns of Fort Pulaski, he retired This, it true, was very extraordinary conduct on tbe part of Commander Kodgers, who ought to have remembered the Landlady's song, which ays: 'Ducky, ducky, ducky, come and be killed. My customers are hungry and their bellies must be lllfd " The Department will no doubt Insti'ute a rigid inquiry Into the matter, in order to ascertain why be did not immediately, or sooner, go up with bis email, fi^ht-draft steamers and blow Fort P"iuk: and Irs 16*j heavy Dahlgren shell guns Into the air. No wonder Commodore Tatnall retired with his fleet, in utter disgust at such oonduct on oar part, and particularly afto' wasting sc much good powder, by heavy firing for nearly two hours, with the American vessels entirely beyond range of his shot, they not In any way noticing his afack or wasting their ammualtton in like manr.er In merely making a noise The next time t^c gallant Commodore makes a similar essay, we weald suggest that he should decoy kimstlf froaa under the gucs of Fort Falaski, end venture sufficiently near to the Arr.e' ^an vessels that his shot may be able to reach them, and theirs in morn may reach him C_T"The U.

Iri their efforts to obtain sr.me of the whisky, in which last one of th?m suci-eedpd notwithstanding the exertions of tbe officer of tbe day; that be orderpd these men to be arres'ed by the guard, and that deceased, drawing his bayonet and using the foulest and most profane language, resisted the arres'; that, Anally, he was rather persuaded than ci m pel led to sheath bis bayonet arid be taken, with his companion, to the guardhouep; that he and his comrade continued to revile Captain Knrl^ht and threaten blm with violence and rrv'iige; and that he directed them to l>e tied, though with mistaken lenity be caused this to be so loosely done, for fear of hurting them, that tbey succeeded In disengaging themselves; that they continued their railing and their threats, and were again, and more securely, tied, by order of the officer of the guard; that they contrived, by means of a large knife which deceased had secreted in his sleeve, to cut the cords with which they were thus tied, and that then O'Rourke brandishing the knife, and, together with h's comrade, threatening to take revenge on all who were concerned in confining him, detied arrest, that the guard, though ordered to rearrest him were backward aud did not obe> the order; that upon SergeantColsmati attemptin^to prevail on the deceased to lav aside the weafou and yield to arrest, be assaulted bim fiercely with tbe knife making r^veral cuts at him; that Captain Enright. coming up and ordering deceased to give up his knife, was grossly reviled, threatened and taunted by him; that Captain Enright presented a pistol, warning d^ieased ol the consequences of persistence, and approaching him. again ordered blm to give up tbe knife; that Sergean' Coleman, at this juncture, stepped between them, and rfqoested deceased to give up his knife, to which dec-a-sed repll. d witb i cut which | grazed Coleman's person, aud caused htm to jump I t*3* *? a?d that de eased had again raised hlsarm I In act to strike, when Captain Enright fired with , f ttal effect. It would thus appear that there was | left to to the bfflcer of the day, in the execution of his office, the choice of retreating before the assault of a mutinous soldier of his own company or of putting him to dta'h To have retreated might not have been possible or safe, but It would certainly been been very prejudicial to ?..od order and military discipline. In adopting the alternative of dealing summarily with the offender Captain Enright simply dischsrged his duty His condact was not snly justifiable but meritorious If there were any conflict in the narratives of the witnesses, a Court of Inquiry would be ordered, but officers, non-commissioned officers and privates all concur so remarkably that any further investigation seems unnecessary 7 2 The Major General commanding cannot speak In the stme term* of commendation of the conduct of the guard on this occasion. The insubordinate and mutinous behavior of tbe deceased and his comrade was, so long as he rematned at large and unpunished, a disgrace to the regiment It Is was especially disgraceful to the guard who had charge of the camp that day. The guard bad orders U. arrest these mutinous ?!?' ?.? through a most unbecoming and unsolderllke backwardness, these orders were not obeyed. The nituralaud necessary consequences ensued If tLey had done their duty with energy and promptitude the officer of the day would not have beeu obliged to shoot down ?he deceased In 2 T*?dlc*,? military discipline.
