A quiet Government. The Washington Chronicle, remarking upon the plan of creating a commission for the government of Washington city and the District, and thus relieving her citizens of the trouble of voting and the cares of their own government, very complacently says: "There is a growing feeling among the members of Congress in favor of such a city government as will dispense with the present municipal organization, and, at the same time, with the machinery of voting. The plan is to create a commission, to consist of citizens eminent for integrity, energy, intelligence and experience. We can almost imagine the future of the District of Columbia and the city of Washington with a government constituted of such citizens — men who would not administer the affairs either in a mercenary or in an extravagant spirit."

The Provisional Governor of Florida will be ordered to surrender his authority to the legally constituted government of that State when the Legislature meets and acts, if not before. In Florida and Texas only the President now maintains the provisional government. The government of the latter has not been re-organized, and consequently the provisional government is retained. The Fenian. In Washington, as elsewhere, the recent troubles are injuring the Fenian Societies. Several meetings, without results, have lately been held here. Arrest of thieves. Michael Holland and Thomas Collier were arrested for entering the store of Mr. C. Herman. About four hundred dollars' worth of the stolen goods were secured. The prisoners were committed for court. Sentenced. In the Criminal Court, Hy. Hawkins and William Tyler, convicted to-day of larceny, were each sentenced one yea
