Tin? only ground upon which this

that of the war-making power. The

it L? likely that it will eontiuue in

require the benefit ol' its provisions.
It will certainly remain in operation
as a law until some months subse?
quent to the meeting of tlie next ses?
sion of Congress, when, if experience
sluill make evident the necessity pi
additional legislation, the two House*
will haw ample .time to mature and
p-'ss the requisite measures. In the
nu .intime, t lie questions arise, why
should this war-u??asui:e be continued
beyond the p-nod designated i:i *>hi
original Act? And why, in linn- ol
peace, should military tribunals la
created to continue until each "Stab'

The Journal of Common.*, alluding
to thc fact that no monthly return

Thc omission by Secretary McCul
Ioch of his usual monthly report of
thc: operations and condition of the j
Treasury, luis excited much curiosity .
and called- out no little inquiry in
regard lo thc movements ..! the
Department. No satisfactory n ason
was osssigncu for withholcUng the j
official summary due on tin- 1st inst.,
but from what we have seen in tins j
market, it is not difficult to conjecture
the motive for such secrecy. Never
before Ju the history ?d' a : .potable '
government were tin-re sue's private
operations in national nuances as j
?nive taken place here within the last j
six wee ks. Large pr?vale sales have j
Leen made ?d' new tive-tweuty bonds;
large private purchases have been
made of temporary obligations of the
Government, and large "swops'" of ?
one security for another upon terms,
which, ii' correctly repotted, must be
considered in the b'giit of a job. ls
it not possible to Recuse a chango, in :
this policy? There will not bc want- '
in# those, who will contend that such i
im m ouse secret operations between
the HWianmy and its favorites arc
carried on solely with u view of
advancing the highest in Unrests of the
country, lint such a claim lia- no
foundation in reason. Lt this wore
the motive it would not justify the
course, but no unpiojudiced observer
eau fail to see the corrupting inlluenee ?
of th whole proceeding, lr cannot
be wise to continu..' ii, and if a decent '
respect ?'or public opinion will uot
