If it lasts long on either tide. It will only be because the parties to It Continue to " make believe " very hard. The outcome of the fire-insursnco men's national convention, now sitting la New-- York, Is that they want their taxation remit . ted. ' Most people do, but some people have better claim to exemption than the Insurance interest. Those who would have exemption must show that they deserve It. So long as insurance companies continue tbe present- loos commission syrtera, under ' which brokers and agents grow rapidly (.rich without taking any share of tbe risk, and so long aa they sell insurance below coat, as many certainly do, to long other busioets interestscan aot be expected tq favor immunity from taxation or any other special privilege for Insurance companies. , Even aa advance in rates, however, would accom-filth nothing So long as companies are free 'j-y to lars a f in of their premiums to , -1 -!l tv, co'-'anies of their profits on the one hand and the property-holders ot their security on the other. The'AVtpK-rZ(!rr-j suggests With great force that what tbe underwriters' con vention neeos to do is (1) to fix npon a maxi- num rate 01 commnsskM to agents and brokers which all can agree to. t Then (2) enter Into articles of agreement, and publish tbem. hot to pay a higher rate. Then (3) let local board everywhere establish adequate rates of premium. If these tbinos cannot be done. a convention will avail little or nothinsr. A RESERVOIR INRXHA VSTIBLE. It is reported that Mr. Walter. proprie tor of tht ndm Timet, while in New-York recently, suggested' 'that that city, which ia constantly threatened by . aa impending water-famine, should supply itself with water from Lake Erie. i. - . , . The suggestion, -chough somewhat start ling at first thought, is received with some favor, and the more as the Important matter It : reflected upon. ' It is allowed, in the first place, that the water which rushes over Niagara Falls is much purer and less liable to change in character at different seasons than that which comes from smaller rivers and, shallow ponds In the second place it is believed to be as practicable to construct a flume to supply any quantity of water as,- it was to construct the . Erie Canal, and the fall between, the two points would be sufficient, if equalled, to produce the necessary current. This however, would be a question of engineering, and New-York Is re minded that it is a city which will soon contain 3,000,000 of human beings. Mr. Walter evidently thinks that the question of cost should not Weigh much with a city of that size, and of wealth, incalculable,-when the thing to be surely attained is an Inex haustible supply of pure water. Another suggestion looking to the same result, is. that the water from Lake Erie might be taken to New-York by pipe-lines like those for petroleum, but of a much greater capacity. This would be vastly less expensive than grading an open flume, and would give the great though somewhat dangerous advantage of a head of over 300 feet to the supply. This pressure would enable it to drive all machinery and extinguish all fires without tbe aid of steam engines, and the filthy streets of the teeming metropolis might be washed and its sewers flushed with the water frequently as a great sanitary measure. I . 1 But if this splendid scheme is feasible for New-York, 400 miles from .Lake Erie, wily could not Buffalo .do infinitely better by constructing a great water-pipe line to Lake Choutauqua, a distance of only about 60 miles? That most beautiful body of pure water is oyer 700 feet above the level of Lake Erie, and the force of the fall could probably be so regulated as to furnish the cheapest motive power for all tbe machinery that could be put up in Buffalo, with a never-failing abundance of the cheapest and best waJterl in the world. What rival could this city then have as a centre of manufacturing industry j " We hope that this subject will attract the attention of our scientific men. We simply throw out the suggestion for what it may be worth, in view of the present high price and low supply of water in Buffalo. If the plan should be pronounced feasible, there is doubtless idle capital enough here that would be gladly employed at a low rate of Interest in carrying it out. LAW YERS FOR LA W-MAKERS. That rather more ambitious than solid periodical, the Journal of the Agricultural Association, raises again the by no meant new question, "Why is it that to many law yers arid to few other people are elected to our deliberative and . law-making' bodies? As the Journal puts It : It it one of Iba notl anomakmt condition! of onr political organism, that a population composed iplinly ot iarmeri, mechanics, merchants, and mtnulaclurert, thou Id, at a rale, c represented in all its legislative bodies, including Congress, by lawyer. Tha fact that It is to represented is patent, and it it certainly lima that a change in the custom which occasion it should occur. That those who live by litigation' should be privileged to make the laws whose bieaih, annulment, or misconstruction supplies them with the meant of subsistence, is stout at crude an examiple of mismanaged public policy as can well be conceived. That those a bote Interest H it that laws should ba broken should be cboaen to frame them, micht occur among a people in k ttale of anarchy. Yet tha nineteenth century sees the leading republic of tka world no farther advaoced titan this in practical Mlf-govetnment. Tba situation. it much tba tame ia England, bat aot to the same extent. There, reprtsentatives of eld county families, and tantiemes expressly educated for par- litmenttry ctrecr. sra term after term elected, and It Is a well-known fad that soma of the strongest members of tba Ilouta of Lommom are agriculturists. . j . There is no mystery about this genera choice of lawyers for places in the law-mak ing branches of the Government. That those branches would do their work more wisely If a larger share of it were to be allot ted to manufacturers, merchants, farmers, and workmen, the iclasset upon whom the lawa as welt at the lawyers-operate," and who furnish the supplies which keep the legal machinery in motion, probably nobody doubts, Still we go on, year after year, electing almost nobody but lawyers to tbe various Legislatures and to Congress.. The reason is, simply, that lawyers are trained to public speaking. "Fluency in that tort bl thing the " gift of .the gab," as the vernacular hath it is not only more common in America than almost anywhere else, but also more admired. Why it should be so much admired. Is another and a harder question. .Why: words spoken in a loud tone of voice by a man .standing un .' should be more impressive and con vincing than words spoken in a conversa tional tone by a man sitting down' is ex plainable plausibly enough in several ways, but none of tbe explanations seems quite to satisfy. A man .who-is declaiming to a Crowd uses, and good taste justifies him in using, more exalted and fervid terms 01 ex pression than can be used in conversation without seeming affected and absurd. But high-flown talk' should not affect tbe mind of a man ol good sense unless it clothes ex alted ideas, and such ideas may be as well and as clearly set forth In the terms of ordi nary conversation aa ia sonorous and long drwn periods. A public speaker can be heard by more people at once, and there is a tympathetic contagion in a crowd, but if a nan . thinks for ! himself he need not yield . td it. Sometimes we are in dined to think that the greater in ftuence of oratory is due altogether to its greater noise. A command shouted at a man, or even at an animal, has a vastly dif ferent effect from tbe same Command spoken in an ordinary tone.. There is prob ably an instinct, which man shares, with the other animals, that makes mere noise, if there is enough of It, carry conviction to the soul, and li is perhaps only because his reason is educated to struggle against such an influence that any man is enabled to hold out against some of the human foghorns of tbe stump, '. Nobody pretends that lawyers are more conscientious or more ' industrious or more patriotic or know more than many merchants and doctors and manufacturers and farmers. On the contrary, the general opinion is that tbey need more watching, because they are up to more tricks and are less scrupulous, than any other class of men. This, tf true. makes them the most expensive and trouble some class of lawmakers. " ' ' v Yet we atlll go on electing them In great excess over any other class of citiaens. If It is not because they can think and talk on their legs, why is It? If they have any other advantage or merit over the rest of us, what is it? ... , .. v - ;-. ..--;;;,. A man who can talk to crowd cannot Hve in this country without constantly ad vertiainfj himselfconstantly keeping In the public eye. - The American people have a passion an infatuation -a craze, f or being talked to. No matter what the occasion; from .a canalboat launch to A funeral, from a picnic to a cornerstone, laying, aotnebody must rise oh bis bind legs and " address the intel ligent aasemblsge." "Thus a man who can Ulk and will talk has endless Opportunities to talk, and any-lawyer, who snuffs afar off the flesh pots, of politics can make himself known to a great majority of the voters. even If he is so bric' a m to tsve little or no chance for legitimate publicity, in the court-room. Whether the moral of ft all is that lawyers should talk less of that other people, should Ulk more, we leave It to that intelligent, that .enlightened, that discriminating jury, the mass of our fellow-citizens, to decide.

' I I ' , j CITY AND COUNTY TAXES., tEDrroa Buffalo Expxxss: By a little per. verting of some facts, suppression of others, and by dodging the gravamen of the question, Mr. Foster appears to think that he has forced a conclusion different from that reached in my former Communi cation. It is. necessary only to invite Mr. Foster's attention to what I wrote, and when he answers that ape -may be in a condition to take up a new issue. Which he evidently would like to raisej leav ing those on tbe tapis undisposed of. I wtote, "The' representatives from tha country towns, find ing themselves in a msjority, spring upon the Board a resolution adopting a r report from a part of the Committee on Equalization, by. which, the basis of taxation for tbe ordinaryexpeosej of tbe County for 1681 is made 74 per cent, for tbe city and . 36 per cent, for tbe towns, thus changing the basis from 70 and 30, whuh have been the proportions for nearly ao rears. 1 . . , i . . Until Mr. Foster either admits or disproves this statement, all reiteration of words and figures in which he indulges must be regarded as but f ' idle wind' I While I am tempted to contradict several things that Mr. Foster tries to make me say, I must forego doing So, as the subject under consideration Is not so much a matter of personal pride as seeking to establish a principle that appears to be necessary for the future peace and safely lof the whole County of Erie. . 1 1 - jj " Mr.i Foster, in effect, accepts , my challenge 'to compare city ana town valuations, as made by tbe assessors, wit a actual sates ot real estate, but only partially fulfills the .condition of the challenge, which was that if be would cite one casewheieia sn actual bargain and sale the property sold for less than the town assessors' valuation, I would furnish five cases ini the city, and if he furnished five cases from tbe country towns ( would furnish twenty-five from the city. Mr. F. has failed to mention one, but asserts with hia usual recklessness that he " knows of property sold in tbe town of Manila lor two-tnirds ot its attested valuation. I therefore move the formality of naming seller. buyer, 1 date, consideration, valuation, place, and page of record, and beg to append to this letter a schedule made from books in the Clerk's office of Erie County, cootsining a specimen brick from every ward abd town in tbe county. Evidence of thia kind can be forthcoming to an extant that will justify every statement advanced by me. i -Now, inasmuch as this controversy is arrowed down to two propositions, neither of wbicn Mr, Foster has attempted to answer, and - as the facts that sapport them are all matters of record in 4he published proceedings of tbe Board, and as Mr, F. cannot-lie permitted to. dodge the issue, I will briefly stale them, : - 1. That for nearly -20 years-the rate of equalization as between the cities and towns has been 70 and 30 per cent, respectively, t . The scale of valuationt by city assessors is maximupt and la tne towns minimum. . r And aa Mr. rotter wniajot attempt again to con trovert tbem, I beg to say, before taking leave of him, that whatever my opinion may be of that gentleman aa a Supervisor, that as an honest, square-toed man he is not surpassed within tbe ranee of my ac quaintance in the county; but inside the portals of tbe supervisors" room, wnea me zraaro is in session, the members from tbe city will be acting strictly within the line of dnty by keeping a watchful eve upon tbe Supervisor from Manila.
