TUESDAY, OCTOBER 22, 1872. PERHAPS we in this country have a more direct interest in the American Presidential election that is to take place next month than we had in any former one. We are interested in this way :— General GRANT has departed from the traditions of the old Republican party, as represented by the late Mr. SEWARD, and has endeavoured to cultivate a good understanding with the United Kingdom, instead of jealous rivalry and chronic ill-feeling. The great achievement of his Presidential term about to expire will not be even the pacification and re-organisation of the South, but the friendly settlement of the Alabama claims, and also of all outstanding differences between his country and our own. When, the Washington Treaty has been fully carried out, there will not remain a single matter in dispute between the two Govern- ments and, in return for our concessions, the Americans will have bound themselves by treaty to a much stricter neutrality than the old international law would have enforced on them in case of our being at war with a third power. We are not going to balance advantages and disadvantages now, and to estimate whether we shall get the worth of our three millions and a quarter from America, but it is unquestionable that, instead of bickering and recrimination, we may now, leaving byg°ne3 bygones, expect something like cor ia » exist between the United States and Great Britain. We, on our part, shall no longer have apprehen- sions of designs in Canada, or of countenance to Fenian raids ugon Ireland. We shall no longer have rabid American journalists saying to us, in effect 11 Olf, we don't want compensation J but wait till you are at war, and then see what we will do The two Governments have settled all the matter in dispute between their respective countries, and even the difference between the United States and Canada have been arranged. Everything has been done that two Governments could do to pro- mote peace and goodwill between two nations. The only doubt remaining. is whether the peoples heartily approve and accept the policy of their rulers. That the people of the United Kingdom do so we think there can be no question. But how about the American people ? We could not easily, under ordinary circumstances, learn what the real judgment is upon the Washington Treaty and the Geneva Arbitration. Their journalists and their politicians are so prone to exaggeration and sensationalism that we can- not trust them as faithful exponents of popular- we will not say public-feeling. We mean that great stream of popular sentiment of which much of the writing and speaking in America forms only the froth and the bubbles. But with the Presi- dential election approaching, just as the settle- ment of differences between the two conntries has been concluded, and with that settlement, as the distinguishing feature of General GRANT'S admi- nistration we shall know what the Americans really do think of his work, and whether they ap- prove and accept the settlement of all differences between them and us. So rarely has a President been re-elected in their country after his first term has expired, that the re-election of President GRANT will be far more significant than the re- election of a member of Parliament, or a favour- able reply to a Premier's appeal to the country amongst ourselves. President GRANT'S defeat in favour of a new man, and one so eminent as HORACE GREELEY, would not necessarily imply condemnation of the settlement with Great Bri- tain, for it happens that the Democratic party, opposed to GRANT, have always been more friendly to this country than have been the Republicans, who are his declared supporters. If the Republican party re-elect GRANT we may depend upon it, as an emphatically affirmed fact, that they adopt his new I policy of friendship towards Great Britain. And at present there is every indication of GRANT'S success. One after another various importan States have voted what is called the Republican ticket at various State elections, even South Caro- lina having just elected a Republican Governor. American politicians look upon those State elections as a certain augury of the result of the more important contest in November, and very gener- ally the success of General GRANT is now regarded as a foregone conclusion. We naturally wish him success, not only that we feel a special conviction that Mr. GREELEY would make a less efficient President, but because we shall be glad to see the policy of Anglo-American conciliation endorsed and adopted at what happens to be the only occa- sion in America which at all answers to a general election in this country. Congress being elected in batches from time to time, and State elections not being concurrently held, the Presidential elec- tion is the only occasion on which a popular verdict can be given in the United States, and that occa- sion is now close at hand, while yet the matter put to the verdict is fresh in the public mind..
IT is somewhat unfortunate that the forms of the Court prevented the Chairman of Quarter Sessions from receiving the presentment of the grand jury the other day at Swansea. Had Mr. JONES listened to the Foreman, on the occasion, or had the latter spoken before the jurymen were formally discharged, we should have been spared the news- paper controversy already opened, and which threatens to attract public attention for some time to come. No doubt the members of the Grand Jury think themselves greatly injured, while the Chairman, whose well-trained legal mind enables him to weigh evidence with singular exactitude, naturally feels incensed at what he believes to be n?CarriaS° jus^ce- We do not, however, t m that the learned gentleman wished to treat the jury uncourteously, although they have thought fit to state their belief that Mr. JONES was wanting in politeness on the occasion referred to. It is not, of course, very pleasant to be charged with neglect of duty, or with having failed to distinguish be. tween right and wrong in estimating the testimony necessary to establish a priuut facie case against an accused person. But, then it m t i. -x • must be borne in mmd that it is equallv I ludiiy painful on the part of any magnate who has heard evidence at Petty Sessions, and accepted it as sufficient to send a prisoner for trial and justify a conviction, to find his judgment invalidated, and the Bill ignored. There should, however, be no display of petulance on these occasions, and if it was repre hensible in the Chairman peremptorily to decline hearing the Foreman in explanation, the public tion of a protest, in which not a little temper is displayed, can scarcely be justified on the part of the Grand Jury. But we can afford to pass these incidents by, as only of small importance in com- parison with the question now so generally raised as to the utility of Grand Juries. On this point Mr. J. C. FOWLER, only t;vo days before the oc- currence which has induced the Grand Jury to rush into print, spoke with a force and perspicuity which, viewed in the light of subsequent events, may be said to have been almost prophetic. Having been invited by the HOME SECRETARY, in common with other stipendiary magistrates, to express an opinion upon the Public Prosecutors' Bill, the learned gentleman gave it as his opinion that, while there was much in the measure deserving thoughtful consideration, there were special reasons for believing that such a legal 11 a functionary, if appointed, should have the power to advise the Grand Jury on points of law, and assist them in coming to a conclusion upon the various cases submitted for their opinion. It ap- pears to me," said Mr. FOWLER, that if the object be to prevent the miscarriage of justice, one or two things should be included in this Bill, either the functions of the Grand Jury should be abolished in ordinary cases, or the tribunal should be placed on a better footing by giving power to the public prosecutor to attend in the Grand Jury-room with the depositions to assist the foreman in bringing out the whole facts of the case as they were proved before the magistrates. He should also be em- powered to explain the law whenever an explana- tion is required. Public prosecutors invested with these powers would greatly assist the administration of justice. It may, perhaps, be said that a mis- carriage of justice very rarely takes place in the Grand Jury-room. At the Assizes that is no doubt the case; but at the Sessions there are neither lawyers nor magistrates conversant with the Criminal law sitting on the Grand Jury. Mr. FOWLER then enumerates several cases in which a failure of justice had taken place within the past year, and the compass of his own persona new- ledge, in consequence of (the Grand Jury having thrown out the Bills of indictment against the accused. The result," says the learned Stipen- diary, would have been different if they had been reminded by a public prosecutor that in each case the person accused had been previously convicted of felony. It is evident that the presence of some official person would be ot great advantage. The relief of the county from all share in the cost of prosecutions after the appointment of public prosecutors will also be an inducement to assent to the Bill as an act of national justice." Old and venerated as the institution is, and jea- lously guarded as are the privileges of the Grand Jury, there can be but little doubt that the time has arrived when!either that august body must be abolished altogether, or placed upon a wholly different footing. It can scarcely be credited that one in every four of the charges enumerated in the calendar at the recent Quarter Sessions at Swansea was of a frivolous character. But s„ it wonW to be by the action of the Grand Jury who ignored eighteen out of sixty-si* bills. To sTODose tte jury right would be to think +>, PP t le I • 0 tmnk the committing magis- trates in error, and to iumW • T I anP1y that a serious wrong had been inflicted, not only upon the pi.isonJ; but the community condemned to bear the costs incidental to a primary hearing and subsequent b to committal. The matter is worthy of careful consideration, and the differences which arose be- tween Mr. R. 0. JONES at the close of the sessions are not, perhaps, to be regretted, since they will have the effect of drawing supplementary notice to the calm and judicious remarks made by Mr. FOWLER at the opening of the Court.
DEATH OF DR. MERLE D'AUBIGNY. A telegram received last night announces the death) at Geneva, yesterday morning, of this celebrated historian and divine. Born in 1794, the venerable and eloquent preacher occupied successively the post of preacher to the late King of Holland, and Professor of Church History at Geneva in connection with the E li I. School founded there about the year vange ca. 1830. A prolific writer he will be best remembered by his "History of the Reformation;" "The Commonwealth of England under Cromwell;" and the History of Europe in the time of Calvin'' Only two years ago he wrote a remarkable pamphlet on « Le Concile et l'lnfaillibilite," which excited consider- able attention. He has passed away full of years, and crowned with honour, and the tidings of his death will be received with the deepest sorrow by every enlight- ened and liberal mind.

FOREIGN NOTES. THE GERMAN REICHSTAG.—The Nord Deutsche Z& .rgkp copies from a Berlin paper the following parso I Prince Bismarck will not attend the sittings of 's Landtag. He will return from Varzin after Ne 1.. day, at the earliest. The Minister is still weakly, and his leave of absence has consequently prolonged for moro than thi'ot, months." German paper comments on this statement thus :— announcement is tolorably precise, but groundless. Last summer the Pi inc'e-Ch,,tncelloi obtguoa an unlimined leave of absence from his Majesty in the interest of his health. How soon it will be quite restore is what no one can at preseut tell; but at all events the j Prince's medical advisers do not regard so long an I%bOooo from Berlin as probable." -g. CARDINAL DR BONXECHOSE AND THE DAILY TELEO- J) —Cardinal Bonnechose, Archbishop of Rouen, has writte to the Journal des Debats to deny the truth of the teleg published by the Daily Telegraph about a converse held by the Cardinal and M. Thiers about the pope; be says:—" I think it my duty to declare that this note tains nothing true but the intention manifested by* Sovereign Pontiff to remain at Rome so long as circ001 stances shall permit. As to the allegation that the 1'°p8' is disposed to treat with King Victor Emmanuel, it is dIr. void of all foundation, and that question was not eVetI alluded to in my interview with the President oi Republic. I request yon to publish this ueclaration." A FRANCO-AMBRICAN POSTAL CONVENTION^—The FrepC: papers announce that a postal, convention is to be establisbet, between France and America.

The Memorial Diplomatique informs its read8lf that it had hoped to announce the definite of the Convention, but that difficulties had arisen io the bureaux of the Minister of Commeice. Itwas hoped. ever, that M. de Goulard would overcome them, and tba all would be agreeably settled. M. do Remusat hns been informed that the American Government will consent to no modification of the proposition already agreed to. ENGLAND AND RuSSIA.-ARussitn correspondent of tbe Memorial Diplomatique says that people at St. PetersbOg have been very surprised at the language of some of tblt English papers with reference to the Khiva expedition. They cannot understand that any danger for England can be seen in a promenade militaire," the object of which is to, deliver 19 Russian subjects kept in captivity by the Tutf0, men of Khiva. Tbey say: We desire to live in harmlli with all men, and principally with England. We wish to contribute to the strengthening of its Indian Government, but if, as certain English papers threaten, England wish0* to make war upon us without rhyme or reason, they can rest assured that it will feel the consequenceS in India. The power of England in these outlying colon'0' can only be strengthened by its good friendship Russia." The Russians are also vexed at the talk that been .raised about the private conversation of General cheff. 11 Faithful to its system of non-intervention in the home policy of other nations, the Russian Governmetit never had any idea of giving directions to one of its dip lomatists to shew M. Thiers what he ought to do in Frsllco. The Times only gives pin-pricks in the water in deels-lior, so haughtily that Russia has no right to meddle in othet people's affairs." THE GERMANS AND THE EGYPTIAN Govf.rn^f.nt•— ..R- German colony at Alexandria have addressed a petition their Consul, in which they protest against the abolition 0 "capitulations." It is difficult, if not impossible," they 8ay, "to find guarantees with a government, of which the chief is himself the first merchant of the country, wb' can, and will, exercise an excessive pressure in judiew courts when his interests arc at stake.

They will too you that far from dreaming about a confiscation of vidual liberty, they would wish it as broad with us as it is in England, Switzerland, and America. That propel is an absolute and inviolable right, and that the only re' gret is that of not having been able as yet to find Dleanl by which all men may participitate in it. That the is a very fine institution that could not be abolish without crime, but that one could protect it froBl many abuses by re-establishing tho Sixth of the Code Civile, which has nothing monstrous in it, divorce exists in England, Switzerland, Germany, Russia, the United States, and generally amongst the tn civilised peoples. That the Budget might be less beftV^' more equitably arranged, and less difficult to be but that it is impossible to have a Government without budget.

THE ANGLO COMMERCIAL TREATY. The following circular has been sent by Earl GranVO& to the various Chambers of Commerce, explanatory of the negotiations with France, relative to the A™io-FrencI> Commercial Treaty:— ° c*. T -I- Foreign Office, Oct 1R 1S72. for the inf!.™ ^1 ? ?ad Gl';invill° to state'to Commprnl +w^10n 0t. tbe Coulicil of the Chamber ° £ points whirb^-1 ^oul(i ippew that in some instances tj»» Chamh^ f r lor'"shlP ^sired to bring before tb» tin^Luv, £ Commerce of the United Kingdom, in conne«- „ commercial negotiations with France, ot been fully understood. The confidential memorandum* which accompanied the letter from this office on the 22ad of August last stated the limits of tho proposed increase ° £ duties in France, subject in all cases to the power of French Government to add further duties, if by with other countries they should be enabled to do so, on the produce and manufactures of those countries ,Cl of Great Britain equally. Without in any way calling question the correctness of this explanation of the proposed alterations of. tariff in France, or the intentions of persons who framed the law of the 26th July last (com- municated to you in the letter of the 20th of August), ii; is possib e hat there may be errors of calculation & respec o compensatory duties and drawbacks, if uncorrected, may seriously affect different interest* rt Tranville does not doubt that these calculation* M .e J18,, question of particular import duties, h*T? receive a the attention of the Chamber. But in matters of TTil. 11ml)or^ailce to the commercial interests of the u er Majesty's Government are desirous p, re ould be no ground for misapprehension. am°cr is aware that the alteration of tariff is not to t* eVy alone, but in connection with the ion that such new duties, so far as they are differentia'' all only have a limited duration; that in all otbef respects, and in regard to duties on the goods affected b1 the new tariff after a specific date, both as to commerce. antI navagation, this country is to receive in France and. Algeria the most-favoured-nation treatment; and that, as far flS it is possible to make the provision, sooh most-favoured-nation treatment is to be secured indepen- dent of and beyond the specific stipulations of the proposed new treaty. Provision will also be made for the satisfactory settlement of questions in regard to minor*! oils of British origin, of exemption from the new duties o* contracts already existing, the bond fide nature of which must be proved before a Commission at Paris; and of ex- amination of goods by experts. In expressing Lord Gran- ville's thanks for very valuable suggestions which have been received from many Chambers of Commerce, I am to state that the period has now arrived when the nego- tiatious must be brought to a close. If the Chamber haS any further observations to offer yn the subjects to which I have now called attention, I am to request that the fact that Auch observations will be offered, and the particular points to which they will appl1. may be notified, by Monday or Tuesday next at latest, and that a statement, which shall be complete and final in itself without reference to other papers, may be sent as early as possible next week. It is also reqaested that the names and addresses of any persons may be given who would be ready to give explanations, either in London or Paris, as may be required in elucidation of the statement which the Chamber may submit. A copy, of the neW tariff above referred to is herewith enclosed. Lord Gran- ville is using his best endeavours to obtain cortain alter- tions in it which have been applied for by different Cham- bers,of Commerce.—I am, air, your most obedient, humble servant, KNFIKLD.
