SATURDAY, MARCH 23, I87B.
Tub right of public meeting is, no doubt, a very precioua one, and cloaely allied to our Engliah habit of free apeech. But there are limita to everything. Even the most ardent votary of freedom—that is rational freedom—must, we think, admit that inviting the hlackguarda of London to hold high holiday in Hyde Park ia a mistake, iking a proceeding as little creditable to the self-appointed maintainera of the right ol public meeting, aa it waa unlikely to advance any cauae whatever. In those times, when governments and pcoplea thought they bad intereata apart, when rulers rcga, tied even a proteat agalnat rale-doing, aa a wrong on the part of the proteaters, public meeting;, in which men by mutual aup-port, could ahow a bold front, and make their complainta heard were a necessity, and bad i real importance and aignificance. But now-a-daye, Wnen the ministers (from whicheverxide they are, selected), are the bumble servants of the people—and are sometimes a little too much so^-sucti aaaemblagts aa those recently convoked In Hyde Park, are aa much an anachroniatr, aa. it would be for men to go armed as they d>«s when robbers were many, and policemen few. > Very probably, the troublesome persons who called the roughs together in the first place, know this perfectly well, and are thoroughly conscious,that nothing but mischief can come—if anything does come—of such demonstrations. Their business, however, is to make miacbief and gltr* trouble, and the present excited atpte of the public mind on the Eaatern question, gives them just, the opportunity they desire lor advertieing themselves and their " cause." ' "
Turn question of capital punishment haa been again debated in the Houae of Commona; and the •oft-bcartcd gentlemen who advocate ita abolition auatained a very complete defeat. To read the speeches of (he murderers' lriende, #no would imagine that England waa a perfect Elyaium, and that violence waa never perpetrated—except by the law. The fact acetna to be, not that anybody ia hanged whose life ia worth preserving, but that a great many people escape with very inadequate punishment, who might, io the interesta of society, be sent out of the world with all convenient dispatch. Stopping abort, however, of those criminals who (as the Scotch judge said.) would be none the worse for s little hanging, we have constant examples of criminate leaving the courta to endure sentences that astonish the recipients by their gross leniency. Thia makes the law de-apiaed, rather than dreaded, and encourage* evil-docra, rather than represses crime. Two classes ol criminals seem especial favourites of magistrate and judges: brutes who are "run in " for cruelty either to women or animals, or the confidence men who have robbed their friends by an abuse of trust. Both these classes, as a rule, get off cheap, and yet, to the outside world, they stand out among criminals aa better deserving ol severe punishment than the mere thief—often a halfwitted " wastrel,," on whom the law seldom fails to fall heavily.

Tub Spectator lately took occasion to remind its r.eaders what national adversity can mean. The croakers of to-day should remember the state of things that existed in both the manufacturing and agricultural districts in the memory of men f ho are still some years short of being aep-tugenariana. Many, whose years do not carry their memories eveu so far back us thia, have etill a very ehsrp recollection of the gloom and depression that existed on every hand just before Peel grappled with the evil, and, by freeing trade, gave a new life to the country. Then > too (aa they say in the SpectatorJ, we had a people who, if more Ignorant, were certainly mdeh more patent,'and much more obedient. Then, too, the people of this country were not so numerous, mod were much more scattered. The towns have enormously increased their populs-tions during the last five and twenty years, and now contain a proletariat ripe for mfsohkf, and impatient of restraint. Add to this the fact that the Liberal party has been doing Its best all the time to map . the foundations of respect for law j and . it eaay to see how terrible a contest an English government might have to faoe were the StatjS of uings to return that culminated in the

Tub famine in China, and the bard times in the States, have brought the question of Chinese emigration to America very prominently before the public there. The miseries endured at home is cauajng numbers of Chinese to aeek to better their fortune beyond the Pacific. The white men, whom rhe slackness of trade bai thrown out ol work in California (and who feel the pinch of poverty all the more, because the comforts of lif« have hitherto been gained there on much easier terms than in Europe) are very angry at the labour market being supplied on easier terms for employers by these yellow-skinned Orientals. The capitalists (who are supposed to have grown rich at the public expense) and the Mongol are equally subjects of iheir dislike. That dislike has taken the form, in San Francisco, of open air meetings, at which both Chinese and rich men were denounced in the most unmeasured terms, and the authorities have had some trouble to prevent the idle ruffians of that city from proceeding from words to acts. Of course, this trouble comes only in a small degree from honest men, who are really sufferers. San Francisco has something more than its share of that idle and depraved residuum from whom the criminal class is recruited here and elsewhere, and who


of these people in Britain, but in California, and the other Western States, from the license their political system affords, and the promise of wealth their gold and silver mines offer, these gentry, if not in a majority, form a very strong and dangerous minority. Probably they never did work (in any honest sense of the term) and the only way that hard times affect them is that they find less to steal. However little good they may ever have been to the commonwealth in their prosperous days, now that timea grow bad with them, they are certainly a source of dahger. Socialist preachera who have, perhaps, made Europe too hot for them by carrying out their theories on a narrow ind limited scale, find ready convert*, both unong these gentry and the really Buffering labourers. We must remember, too, that the prosperous man in the " States" generally spends his money mors or less discreditably, and has gained it, more or less, by sharp practice. Add to these elements of trouble, the fact that the United States abounds in political charlatsns, who make an easy living by denouncing their bettera, and to whom all law and order ii alike, hateful, and we may easily understand that it will need statesmen of • firmer fibre than the ordinary politicians to guide tfae Great Republis through the near future.
