A large numberof bills wen-passed upon

Justice Winters had always noticed that
when a municipality ha I u nice piece ol

citizens eager to ponsc-m Ihetnselves of it.
He moved a discharge of the committee,
w hich was carried.
A motion was then made to reject the
proposition ol Mr. I'earce. It was dia
ci en d lliat he had not signed the docu

proposition at all, nnd that all the elo

The contract would be u good one. This

Constables should collect the tax w ithout

labor of these couvicts lo the exclusion of
all other rlions of the county.
A motion was made lo rescind the old

HALbTKAO 8 REJECTION.
The Senate Oets More Well-Deserved

New YoitK, April 1. The . th.- morn
iug quoloa the editorial ol the Cummerrial
rVii.vrtVon the rejection of Mr.Halatead, and
then says: We ue bound to aay that we
believe tbis.statement to bo substantially
correct. It would bo possible lo rouder u
more satisfactory and trustworthy udg
m. -nt concerning it it the proceedings, of
the Senate were not wrapped in secrecy
and the words, as well aa the voles of the
Senators, acrocnod from public scrutiny.
That is at once a misfortune and a disgrace.
Hut the Senators who are now foraaecond
lime held up for reprobation nnd contempt
for their conduct growing out of tho I'aync
scandal are not, from tho very fact of tho
secrecy in which they hide, entitled to the
bene til of any doubt tiiut may arise from
lack of knowledge. They cannot coin -
plain il thoy are judged by tho known
(acta only when they prevent the public
from knowing all the (acta. The knuwn

of a light vote.
