By the Governor. Georoe G. Stacy, Secretary of State. Who is Responsible? Now that the statements of Captain Wil liams of the ill (ated steamship Atlantic and his chief officer, Mr. Frith, have been given in an official tribunal at Halifax, it is a proper time to form an opinion as to where the re sponsibility ofthat unparalleled disaster rests. By his own statement Captain Williams finds himself 460 miles from his port with but 127 tons of coal and provisions for hardly more than two days. At the rate that the ship had been consuming coal for the three days previous when she was making from eight to ten kuots an hour, the coal would give outiu about thirty-three hours, leaving the ship 160 miles(rom herdestinatiou. This,in connection with the indications of bad weather, rendered it imperative for Captain Williams to make the port of * ialifax. In view of these facts, the Liverpool agents of the Atlantic, knowing all the vicissitudes that attend a voyage at this season of the year, are clearly responsible in the first instance for those deficiencies that com pelled the ship to go out of her course to get supplies. Had there been no lack ot coal or food, the ship with a commander who had never before been on that dangerous coast, would not have been wrecked on Marr’s rock. There can be liatdly a question but that Captain Williams convicts himself by his own statements of the m , st inconceivable lack of prudeuce. To his care was committed not only a ship and cargo worth nearly a million dollars, but a thousand human beings with all tlieir hopes and prospects, and bound to thousands of others by the most sacred ties.— Assuming as he did that at 1.30 in the morn ing, an hour and a half before the ship crash ed against the rocks, that he was forty-eight miles south of Sarnbro, .t was no time for a man charged with such grave responsibility to give his ship into other bauds when run ning toward the shore at the rate of twelve miles an hour. It may he urged that.Capt. Will ams relied upon the accuracy of calcula tions that had never failed, and that the chauce of an error was uot one in a thousand. This does not alter the ca-e. A man in that position should not rely upon one test, hut should employ every means in his power to secure absolute safc.y. Captain William.' as sumed from his calculations that by run ning a certain course front too point tfueie the Atlantic was turned towa% Halifax, lie would reach a point five miles east of Satr.b light. A well kn .vvu capfiin sailing from this city informs us that that course would take the ship west of that light, and upon the rocky coast, whore she was lost. Cm , In Williams expressed Ids ignorance of run cm reuts on that coast. The same informant says that every navigator of that dangerous coast is familiar with the long known exisf unee of strong currents which set toward (he shore at the rate ot three or four miles an hour. Captain Williams assumed that he coull see Sarnbro light when twenty-one miles distant in clear weather, aud in moder ate weatiier when fifteen miles away. Out informant, who has made that port hundreds ofti oes, says that Sarnbro light cannot he discerned at a greater distance than fourteen miles under the most favorable circumstan ces, and seven or eight miles in ordinary weather. Officer Brady says that no means were taken to ascertain the direction or force of the currents, and no usual means were employed to-look out for an approach to the shore. In short, seemingly assuming that there could be no danger, Captain Williams and his officers sailed for this unknown port; and in view of all the facts, both of his own and others testimony, the mo t charitable must he 'ed to the irresistible conclusion that the dreadful calamity is directly due to his neglect which, under all the circumstances, A.U Bui. _. _ _i . . .1 i _ ouuiv UI Oiiiuiuai lovniocoiiciw. The decision ol Judge Sliepley in the U. S. Circuit Court m Boston on Friday last in the cases Morse, Jr , et ai. vs. Massachusetts National Bank and Frank S Fisk vs. Same, will be of interest to bank officers and busi ness men generally. The declaration in each of these esses alleges that the plaintiff on the 29th day of August, 1866, was the owner and possessed of a check drawn and signed by one B. Franklin Bea', whereby Beal directed the Massachusetts National Bank to pay to the order of the plaintiff the sum of ten thousand two hundred and ninety dollars; that the plaintiff on the same day presented the check for payment, and the defendants, in consider ation that the plaiuttff would deposit said check for collection in some other bank in the city of Boston,so tlia, the same should be pres ented through ail association called and known as the Clearing House Association, promised and agreed with the plaintiff that, upon such presentation, they, the said defendants,would pay the same, and the plaintiff alleges that in consideration thereof and in pursuance of the said request,he did agree to deposit said chock in Borne other bank in Boston, that the same should be transmitted from said bank through the clearing-house for payment, and accord ingly did deposit it in the First National Bank, through the Clearing-House Associa tion, duly presented to defendants for pay ment, and defendants refused to pay the same. To these de.claratiods the defendants de murred,and Judge Shepley sustained the dr murrer m to elaborate opinion, holding in a dictum, that the cashie . 11 ad no power to bmd the hank to pay unless there w‘„,. fwu1s on deposit to meet the cheek, and th-t oven the promise of the bank itselr, which ‘T„„ mitted by the demurrer, was void under the" Stetnte of Frauds as a verbal promise to the debt of another, that is, the drawer of the check.

Tir - i. cruelly unjust to the many Senators ami As-;.mbiyipen, who are unquestionably honest, out is apart ol the system, and has the effect to deter men, who value their repu tation from accepting positions which are : likely to subject them to obloquy and dis trust, Probably this is the retson why so great a number of obscure men of uncertain j character ob aiu seats in tbe legislature, and why there is a gene, al feeling of uneasiness ; throughout the S&ite from the first day of the ! session to the last, lest improper measures promotive of personal interests should be forced through both Houses by corrupt ap pliances. Thoughtful citizens irrespective of party comprehend the imperative necessity of de vising an effective remedy for these crying abuses. Public opinion has been awakened to the gr .vity of the subject in a very earnest way. and if the agitation cau be kept up, it is not impossible that the people may be stimu lated to tbe exercise ot a judicial discrimina tion in the selec ion of the Representatives to whom they delegate the power of making laws. One serious difficulty lies in the way. It is in determining the respective measures of guilt of the briber and the bribed. The for mer is the creator, the latter the creature. If there were no tempter there would be no sin. It is a notorious truth that for the past ten years, the chief sources of the wages of shame to dishonest legislators have been tue officers' and agents of those two great corporations, the New York Central and the Erie Railways. The former is under the conti ol of Mr. Vanderbilt. He is associated with a nominal Board of Directors hut is con ceded to be the supreme power in the con cern. The records of his company show that hundreds of thousands of dollars have been paid out of its treasury to procure or to prevent the passage of laws affecting the in terests of the road. It buys its way through eveiy session. Tbe excuse urged is that there is no other way to protect the property of the stock-holders—that to resist a practice which has been sanctioned by long impunity and is recognized as a matter of course, would Ka an’KiAAf 4-1-ta tn rninmiQ flYt.nrt.inn anil spoliation. But on the other hand, this gigan tic corporation exposes itself to a reign of ter ror every winter by yielding-to the rapacity of the lobbyists and their principals. The sword has a double edge. So that the paying of bribes is a doubtful expedient on the score of interest, while ethically it Is utterly indefensi ble. The Erie Railway has until recently been in the bauds of sordid adventurers hopelessly destitute of morals or decency. Bribery was the obviously natural weapon of defense of such fellows. But cron uuder (lie new man agement, composed of reputable gentlemen. :n :eys have been appropriated to pay tbe price of guilt. Now, until popular odium she.1 be visited with equal severity spoil the giver and tu-a taker of bribes, and each shall wear thee nnmoi! brand of infamy, there will be no hope of purifying our State legislation ir ,m the In rribie disgrace brought upon it by t': <e revelations of base venality. II v; .the good fortune of New York city le f t.: to elect to the important office of Dis trict Ait >rr;cy, one of the roost able, fearless a t-1 competent lawyers who ever occupied that potin the ptrr -n of Benjamin K. Phelps. Sir. Ph"ip? is a na ive of New England, about forty years of age, a gentleman of flue address, c mrteous manner-. eloquent of speech, forci ble iu action, of irreproachable character, and endowed with rare energy and vitality. He has been but three months in office, and the admirable efficiency ot which he lias given evidence, au ers well for the administration of Justice under such a capable minister. Tin* business of the Courts is being pressed for ward with an alacrity hitherto unknown in our criminal jurisprudence, all clas ses of offenders are beiug brought to trial with commendable despatch, and bis official conduct has already inspired our community with a sense of increased safety to life and property. Tiie place of District Attorney is the very best one in the city for a man who is equal to its duties. The iucumbent ot it is constant ly under the public eye and his acts form the subject of wide-spread criticism. His im mediate predecessor, Garvin, left the bench of the Supetior Court to take this conspicuous post, but failed to make any reputation in it. Having obtained it from the Tweed Ring, he was naturally suspected of undue affiliation with that cabal, and did nothing in his official capacity to remove that fatal suspicion. He fell with his patrons, even Tammany Hall denying him the empty compliment of a re nomination. Oakey Hall preceded Garvin, and fi -st be came known to fame as the prosecuting offi cer of the county. He had been previously an assistant in the office, and there had ac quired proficiency in the knowledge of its : duties. Haii gave promise of a brilliant ca I reer. He was a literateur of no mean pre I tensions, a poet, a dramatist and wit; an j agreeable conversationalist, ready in epigram, a welcome guest at every dinner table, and one of the acknowledged favorites of New York society. He was withal a good lawyer and an industrious student, as well as a genial companion. The fatal defect of his charac ter seems to have been a chronic distrust of the good faith of bis fellow-men. Perhaps this arose from bis experiences of the polit ical associates among whom he was thrown. Be that as it may, he grew to, or perhaps it would be more appropriate to say, dwarfed to the conviction that there was no such tiling as morality in po’itics. Originally a Whig, and"subsequently a Republicen, he en tered into combinations and bargains with Democrats, which finally threw him into the ranks of that party. His change of politics was as sudden ss the conversion of St. Paul, but bore no other resemblance to that great event, of apostolic history. His Republican friends had heaped honors and emoluments upon him in profusion. Ilis new allies re ceived him with affectionate embrace, and placed him without probation, in the front rank of their councils. Sweeney made him 31 yor, and put him in training for the Gov ern-rs chair. Everybody knows the sequel. The Ring tumbl 'd into dishonored dust, and Hall’s visions of ambition vanished like a in-' .'or.

It is a i ■ 1 (. ruling to a career which nothing but a deviation from the straight path of recti ■ ,ude could have prevented from being emi lently successful. Oakey Hall is still a comparatively young nan, with an adequate tortune, a charming amiiy, and not a tew friends in whose eye* jjs personal traces anil meutal gilts outweigh its official delinquencies, but tbe glowing as pirations for distinction be has cherished svith such fervor and nourished with such :are lie buried beneath the ruins of the “Ring” whose charter he drew, whose wishes be served, whose fellowship he accepted, an whose degradation he -shares. I i.relict an entirely different history for the man who has now succeeded to the position in which Mr. Hall won his hist laurels. Mr. Phel ' is not in ide of the stuff that yields to X seductions of Rings, or consents to "Lt ti,e misdeeds of others to promote his personal success. His piinci les and bis good sense alike combine to imbue him with the flexible put pose to gain popular favor by no tiier means than the earless, impartial and ilVcctivo .administration of tbs functions of ... . Guided by this resolution the ;haucc I.cj before him of becoming a prodi Jous favorite of tlie people, a useful cou . rv.i; r ol the public welfare, and the re :ip:eui of honors won by merit aud ’ot by in ri rue*, ilis duties are arduous, and ■li en repulsive, and it requires no small dc p-ee ol intrepidity to resist the app;a!s which ire constantly being made to his sensibilities, :o stay the avenging arm of the law. But lie ippears to possess the strength and courage ;o pursue and bring to swift punishment ail perpetrators of lawlessness and violence with squal indifference to entreaty or menace. President Grant with his wife and daugh ter Nellie spent three days in this city last week. They were the recipients of a good deal of private hospitality. The President is in excellent health and spirits. He has the same qaiet manner and modest hearing,which have always character ized him, since his fame first flashed upon the American people, a little more than ten years ago. The jackal s of the press aud the stump, have failed to disturb his equanimity or ruffle his temper. As a general rule he is reticent, bat among friends he converses with perfect ease and seif- ossession. 'I here are iew men of our time, who have a better knowledge of the affairs of the country, or wiser judgment in giving practical direction to the business of the State. The arrests of the assistant cashier, receiv ing eller and porter of the Bull’s Head Bank will in all probability lead to a discovery of the means by which lhat institution was rob bed of over »300,u00. The first named of these parties is involved iu such a web of sus picious transactions that he will find it diffi cult to extricate himself. Whether the otner two were bis accomplices or not will appear in due time: but tbe patient and thorough ex amination of he books of the bank, which has been made by the U. S. Examiner has elicited tacts which can scarcely fail to bring the real culprits to light. Yarmouth. News and Other Items. The Holyoke, Mass.
