Tiib troubles tho Austrian: have encountered in Bosnia is the he*t possible comment Mr. Gladstone's " bag and baggage " policy could receive. It seems a rule-of-three sum,—if it has cost the Austrians all this trouble to enter one province, what might Europe have had to encounter had the new crusade of the Radicals been entered upon ? Philanthropy (so-called) is always a dangerous guide when it assumes to conttoul the action of the nation ; but it never did England, or the world, more mischief than it has done during the last three years. Russia was cunning enough to master the public opinion of Europe, and save a few cool longheaded men, like our Premier, made ^everybody believe that Turkey wa* a den of horrors, and that Russia was the Ilercales to cleanse this Augean stable. Eurouc is now ashamed of its own lolly, and perfectly sure that the remedy was much worse than the disease. Looking back, we think every dispassionate man must see now that to have sternly prohibited Russia's advance, and to have boldly stood by Turkey's side, as an ally, would have been at once the most honourable and the most humane policy we Could have adopted. We should have preserved the Turkish Umpire, and have prevented " unspeakable " misery.
Omm of the most expensive of modern luxuries i philanthropy. Of course we shall be told tha-philantbropy is a duty, and not a luxury ; we reply that it is made a luxury, and a very ex pen sive one by the way in which theorist* are allowed to abuse its requirements. No doubt, when Howard and others began to call attention to our jails in the last century, tho system—or no system—was as bad as bad could be. Jails were not only dens of thieves, but oltcn places and centres from which vice and wickedue*s were spread and propagated, instead of being checked and restrained. The misery endured within their walls was often something horrible—especially for the most harmless of their inmates, debtors and petty offenders. Disease and death-were their constant visiters, so filthy and badly managed were they. The recoil Irom this atato of things has produced the remarkable—we do n6t pretend to call it satisfactory—re*ult.tbat tho people in the prisons are nine limes healthier than the rest of us. (Bo much for regular hours and the absence of stimulants, i.e., narcotic and irritant poisons.) But when we look into tbe statistics of the cost of the new system we find that people who do not share lbs sanitary advantages of these institutions have been taxed, and are being taxed, prodigiously to secure for their inmates the advantages they enjoy.
Tubs the lunatics. Lunatic aaylums, like jaila, were no joubt something dreadful under tbe ancient Kgww, and pauper lunatics no doubt fared badly euough. Now note the difference. When it waa suggested that our emptied jail might accommodate those demented persons chargeable to the rates the proposal was instantly stopped by the reminder that the Commissioners required that every Lunatic Asylum should have at least one quarter of an acre exercising ground for every lunatic. A comfortable arrangement truly, but one that all sane and decent people cannot eniov. Then look at the education of the masses. We have passed from leaving It to private goodnature to making it * department of State—rwlth the unpleasant result that school-boards are spending money on schools as If they bad an endowment to waste, and were not drawing every halfpenny of It from the ratepayers' pockets. We do not mean to suggest anything so shocking as the neglect of education, or the Ill-treatment of lanatica and criminals, but we do esy that fair and necessary work te overloaded by
of «M* expenaive detalla. Also
"""
Tit a correspondence recently' published by. Mr. Forster concerning hh relations with the wirepullers of the Radical party at Bradford, has naturally caused the whole subject of political " wirepulling " to be pretty thoroughly discussed. Party leaders (who like to have their men well in hand) naturally think Paradise has been reached when the " party," two or three active politicians, can controul the representation of this or that city or borough. The example of the United States, however, makes » good many people hesitate to accept the triumph of party as (an approach to the millenium. Indeed those who regard party as a means, and not as an end, dislike the notion altogether of suclr self-acting machines as the Birmingham 600. In England the great mass of people are not party men at at all; they only desire the good government of their country. They regard with hearty dislike tbe notion of the country losing the services of its ablest rons because their votes on some one subject do not satisfy some little clique of irresponsible committee men.
Tub Tmmmibui Collision O.v tub Thames.— This awful catastrophe we should hope will enforce the warning the Board of Trade recently sent through the country aa to the habitual overloading of passenger steamer*. As a rule, of course, the sea or the river are much safer roads than tbe rail, as the following extract from the Nautical Magazine demonstrates: — " Many people will be surprised to learn that not one of all the passengers who travelled between ports in the United Kingdom in steamships during the year 187G-7 lost his life by shipwreck, and that only six passengers, all of whom were the friends ol the captains, were lost in sailing vessels, lhese facts contrast favourably with the 126 passengers killed and 1,283 injured on railways, and may not be altogether without interest to passengers who havo the option of travelling by laud or by water." The statistics for 1878 we fear must tell another story ; but we trust that the warning will not be lost on those who hare the supervision of excursion steamers, not only on the Thames, but at all the watering pldccs and pleasure resorts along the coast.
