Tile "Wilson Amendment.
The Senate having refused to ap?
point a Committee of Conference,
and insisted on Sherman's substitute
to Stevens' bill, tho House passed the
same, as amend'd by Wilson and
Shellabarger. Tho first passed by a
vote of G9 to GO, and thc latter by 08
to 70; and in this action the Senate
concurred. Mr. "Wilson's admend
ment is as follows:
Be it enacted by the Senate and
House of Representatives of the

A correspondent writing from Ca?
lifornia to the Suidhern tiecord, says:
Just hore, lot mo say to. the many
friends who write concerning coming
to this country to bettor themselves:
If you have a home, and can make a
living, stay where you are. If you
come boro to buy land, you cannot
tell whither you have any title
or not. The best of tho farming

Tlic Richmond Times says:
"The King is dead! Longlivethe
Kin^r!" were the cries with which the
. French people, for ages, announced
i the mortality o? man and tho snp
I posed immortality of the splendid
I despotism of the Lourbons.
I In these days of gloom and oppres
' sion, the death of one radical Con?
gress is followed at an interval of le:.s
than twenty-four hours by the or
j ganization of another still more ro
I morselcss, violent arid unscrupulous,,
j Like that hideous giant who, so
I fierceless, persecuted the traveler, it
j disappears simply to be followed by
j another monster still more relentless
and active in evil deeds than the first.
We may improve the brief interval,
however, which must necessarily
elapse between tho dissolution of thc
i thirty-ninth and tho organization of
the fortieth Congress, by preparing
to meet, with calm courage and forti?
tude, every unknown wrong which is
still concealed from our view in the
womb of Time.
Now is the time for thc South to
show the greatness of her soul, and
to make her persecutors desperate in
the discovery that bayonets and brute
force have no terrors for her; that
the sublimity of her courage and for?
titude can never be reached by those
who have neither the wisdom nor
statesmanship to "reconstruct,*' but
idly think that nil the Gordian knots
of politics can be cut by the sword of
The spectacle of martial law and
? military commissions, during a pe?
riod of profound peace, and among a
! people who are totally defenceless,
! and multitudes of them on the verge
of starvation, will shock, not only
the sober, second thought of the
North, but will be visited witli tho
honest indignation of all Christen?
dom. Such a proceeding will be re?
ceived by mankind pretty much in
the same way us they would in the
old time the massacre of St. Bartho?
lomew's Lay, or Herod's murder of
the Innocents. The utter absurdity
of the necessity of governing the
South with the military arm will be?
come more and more apparent when?
ever such a scheme shall commence
to be put in operation. And that
Congress should be driven to this
means'-of escape from its troubles
will be the clearest proof of its in?
ability to legislate for the good of the
country, or to compose its troubles.
It will be a confession that our na?
tional councils lack brain and virtue,
when, for so little provocation, they
call in tho bayonet and sword to
solve what deliberative wisdom should

ANOTHER ADVANCE IN INSURANCE
HATKS.-The insurance companies of
this city have resolved upon another
advance in their rates. This action
results from the heavy losses which
the companies have lately sustained,
together with the inefficiency of the
fire department under its present
management. Whatever may be said
of the respective merits of the old
and the new department system, it
must be admitted that the destruc?
tion of property by fire has been
much greater since the change was
made. And til is increased loss falls
upon tho people in the way of ad- !
vanced insurance rates. Lut thc
practical question is, how can tho ef?
ficiency of the lire depaatment be im- :
proved? Shall we abolish the paid
system, and return to the discarded
one*? We doubt tlie expediency of !
such a change. Thc old system had i
some good features, but it hud more
bad ones, and we should bi; reluctant
to take its evils back for the sake of
securing its good qualities. Tho in?
efficiency <>f tlie present lire depart?
ment we believe to bo solely a conse?
quence of bml management, and not
the result of defect in the .system,
it;; managers have made it a political
machine, rather than a machine for1
extinguishing lires, and so long as ir
romains in that situation it will be a
source ol' complaint and of advanced
insurance rates. Then; an; three
I points in which changes must be
made beforp the fire department will
attain the required efficiency, Ejirst,
I the appointment of a non-partisan,
j competent, and energetic bonni of
: commissioners to supercede the poli?
ticians who now constitute tin; board,
i Second, a material increase in the
number ol' firemen, which is now to?
tally inadequate to tlie duties re?
quired. Third, a substantial increase
in the salaries of the firemen. The
defect in these respects covers tlie
whole difficulty, and weare confident
that if the suggested remedios be ap?
plied, there will not long be cause for
periodical advances in insurance
rates.-New York Sun.

\ tetter- I3K.AU Sin: This is to certify that I
I was taken with the dyspepsia a year ago
j last March, and, for a period of eight
j months, was one of the most miserable
creatures yon ever beheld, not being able
' either to eat, drink or sleep, and was com
: polled to walk the tloor incessantly. I was
j nearly deprived of my reason, ami hope
had entirely left me, all tho efforts made
for my recovery having proved fruitless.
Ly the first of November, 18(15, I had
become so weak and feeble that I could
scarcely stand alone, and, to all appear?
ance, would soon die. At this time, (hav?
ing read your advertisement.? my wife
j prevailed upon mc to try your bitters. A
bottle was procured, and, strange to say,
I soon commenced recovering. I have
taken four bottles, and am enjoying as
good health now as could be expected for
lone of my age, (about sixty years.) I
nave no doubt that it was your Bitters
alone, under Divine Providence, that
effected this wonderful cure.
