A certain ckss of United States
Senators have pretended to be par
vxeUene the friends of the adminis
tration, and have taken upon them
selves to set np a standard whereby
others of their fellow Senators were
to be judged. We have heretofore
referred to the hollowness of their
claim, and time but adds to the evi
dence upon which onr opinion was
founded. In his annual, message,
recently read in the Senate, Gen.
Grant makes the following beautiful
allusion to the question of amnesty :
"More than six years having elapsed
he said, "since the last hostile gun
was fired between the armies then
arrayed against each other one for
the perpetuation, the other for the
destruction of the Union it may
well be considered whether it is not
now time that the disabilities imposed
by the fourteenth amendment should
be removed. That amendment does
not exclude the ballot, but only im
poses the disability to hold office
upon certain classes. When the
purity of the ballot-box is secure,
majorities are sure to elect officers
reflecting the views of the majority.
I do not see the advantage or pro
priety of excluding men from effice
merely because they were, before the
rebellion, of standing and character
sufficient to be elected to positions
requiring them to take oaths to sup
port the Constitution, and admitting
to eligibility those entertaining pre
cisely the same views, but of less
standing in their coinmuniiies. It
may be said that the former vio ated
an oath, while the latter did not
have it in their rower to do bo. If
they had taken this oath it cannot be
doubted they would have broken it
as did the former class. If there are
any great criminals, distinguished
above all others for the part they
took in opposition to the Government
they might, in the judgment ot Con
gress, be excluded from such an am
nesty. This subject is submitted for
your careful consideration.' We do
not believe there was any part of the
President's message more universally
approved than this. The fact that
the writer had been the leader of the
armies that bad driven the rebellion
to the ''last ditch, and that he had
since led the party of restoration
through the most difficult stages of
reconstruction, gave weight to the
opinion thus expressed. Oie would
have supposed that these would-be
friends of the administration in the
Senate would hasten to give force to
these views of the President- But it
is not BO- Senator Morton, of Iadi
ana, the loremost of those who as
sume epeciil friendship for the ad
ministration, takes occasion in Ms
speech, recently delivered on the
floor of the Senate, to express his
supreme contempt for all the Presi
dent says on the subject. Wh
nonsense !'' he exclaimed with his
usual poetic ardor, "is liiij plan o!
forgiving rebels; what a piece o!
sickly senlimentalism and spurious
generosity; and then be went on to
show that if the late iasurgeais were
restored to political life, all xoainer
of evil things would bs like" to lot
low. It is, perhaps, unnecessary to
state that the Indiana Senator mel

the quesaoa of amnesty, but to cll

professions of Morton and his ci-

WHAT IS WANTED.
It is lamentable that so intelligent
a body as the United States Senate is,
or 6hould be, should so far misappre
hend the present popular demand as
to suppose that the Presidential suc
cession is now the one great central
idea with the American people. True,
it is a matter of importance, and one
which by no meats should be lost
&ight of, but considerirg a'l the
probabilities or succession (the
strongest of which i? tint Piesldcnt
Grant, will be his otd successor),
we do not see anything to imminent
ly threatening in the cut-look as to
the constant vigilance of the Senate.
We are led to these reflections by
the fact that ceitain Senators have
their virions continually haunted by
this ghost ot the Presidential succes
sion, to the prejudice of business of
more immediate importance. No
Senator, who has any claims upon the
country fcr psst services, dare intro
duce a measure cf importance, nor
raise his voice in behalf of any need
ed reform, but he is set upon by these
presidential echemers, who can see
nothing in any good that he may con
template hut a bid for the Presidc-n
cy. The idea seems to Lave cb
tained with these men that Senators
must be dwarfed, for the time Lt-h'g,
in order that Gen. Gract may f ppear
to a better advantage by comparison.
The wheels of legislation mu3t move
slowly ; Congress must plod through
its session ia a mediocre sort of a
way, lest, hapiy some fortunate Sena
tor should drop the golden word
which may le galvanized into a rally
ing cry for the Republican hosts in
the campaign of the present year.
Does an ucsnepecticg Senator ssk
for a committee to reduce expenses
and ferret out corruption in the civil
service? He is at once informed that
he is injuring the chances of to me
Presidential aspirsnt. His motives
are impugned, and his action, which
under ordinary circumstances, would
be entirely inuocentand jiraisewoitby,
is now big wi'.h anticipated evil.
We ate constrained to believe that
the people of these United States
have no sympathy with this President
makiDg. ThtTe are several questions
of more than ordinary importance
upon which the sentiment of the
country demands immediate action,
and they are questions which nerd
not affect the interests of any candi
date for Presidential honors, who is
possessed of the mend and political
rectitude which should belong to the
Chief Executive ot a gieat natioF.
The popularity of the pie sent Admin
istration is laigely due to the
straightforward, open manner ot
dealing with public questions. It las
pursued the even tenor of ita way,
regardless of the vitupera ion of its
enemies, pairgtfi the public debt,
weeding cut cotroptiou wherever il
was knorn to exist, ar.-l it has thus
marctied steadily otwird. L'.'t its
pretended iriei.ds ia Cocgrtsi ccrse
their libUittg, tempo: iziag course, and
give to the country the le.isti.m it
demands At any rate, let them
cease thc:r urjast and carping criti
cism upon the p-rty fidelity of those
Senators who are disposed to do their
duty in this puticnlar.

Tns New York Evening Pott sajs
that Mr. Pomeroy's bill setting aside
a tract of land forty miles long by
forty-five miles in breadth at 'he head
ot the Yellowstone Kiver as a national
park, would involve an inconvenience
to the government similar to that ex
perienced by the gentleman who pur
chased an elephant. The cost of the
elephant was remarkably low ; the
proposed park would cost the govern
ment very little. The expense of
keeping it, however, would be of seri
ous importance, and perhaps the mere
expenditure of money wouM be the
smaller part cf the inconvenience in
carred. At the very outset suspicion
is aroused by a clause in the bill pro
viding lor the "lease of small portions
for the construction of hotels.'" and
such a piece of public property woiJd
probably be a mine of speculative cor
ruption Fortunately, the grand scen
ery of the region ia question, the hot
spi ings, the geysers, and other natn
ral phenomena, are likely to resist the
hand of man without the puny pro
tection ot the government. Art
might min the beauty ed 'Watkius
Glen," or the -'Delaware Water Gap,'"
but among the magnificent canyons of
the far West the artificial improve

the surface of the landscape as it with
a covering of moss, and his habila

need have no fears oa this account,
and Congress need not waste its time
in discussing the subject.

THE SOUTHERN STATES.
Financial Condition of the Southern
Startling statements having been
made from time to time ia regard to
the debts of several of the Southern
States, and these being used as an
argument against the sjstem of re
construction, the following remarks
of Hon. Job E. Stevenson, in the
House of Ileprcsentativcs, will prove
interes'ing. Mr. Stevenson is a
memWr of the committee appoiu'el
to inquire into the contliuon ot Hit
Southern States, and that commii tee-
being rcqui'e-d to report upm Hie
debts of the ee.eoal Southern S.a'e-,

Mil 1!kck; That Wis ul rt pud:
Mu t-TitviiNsox : No, iir.
Mn. Deck: It was ail ii u I'uic
ly a provision in the ll:h smend
ment. Me Stbvkn30X : No tir, it was
not bll repudiated. Only the rtb.l
debt was repudiated. Take the
State of Virginia, if you pleaf-.e In
1870, before reconstruction, the debt
of that State was over forty-five mil
lions. New it is less than icrty lhr;e
millions a decrease sitice r-construction
; and every dollar of thin
debt is the eld Demociatic debt ot
the old Democratic State o! Virginia
debt created before ihe war, in
creased by interest to 1S70, and de
creased since by sale of afsets.
Wis. Poirrsn: Tie gentleman i3
certainly mistaken. The debt of
Virginia now, ucder Dcmocrsf.c rule,
Mk. Stevknsox: I have the cor
rect figures. "I know whereof I
affirm." If there are Republicans
who seek to exaggerate the debt of
Virginia in order to make capittd
against the Democratic .overr,ai':r.t
of that Slate, I nm cot one ot them.
I s!a'e tho facts from clhcial soure .-s.
Now, Mt. Speaker, how U it ab:ut
Louisiana? I had supposed that re
carding the debt ot that State, there
could he no exaggeration; hut tho
rhetoiical gentleman from Intinni
(Mr. Vooilieoe) has be-eu able to ex-
asorerate it. Jumping with h's seven
league boots into matters which he
e idenlly has net considered, he says;
"Ti.e debt of Louisiana ia somewhere
fiom liity to on a hundred millions.''
Tlie fact is it is '8omeheru" under
forty millions. Ihe Constitution
li'iiits it to twenty-five millio-is, toid
tlic-v cn not go fr beyon i that.
iliouli tlii-v inn Mte-iupt t do so.
Tue e'ti-t proper is S22,000JJ.
aa ! to make forty lac'.u h-s contingent
and prospective contingent Iiabiltlics
tor railroads and other public im
provements. The Coast iiuiion shears
the whole turn down to some figure
within twenty five minions. Herdeol
of twestv two millions includes that
made t rebuild the levees which
alone amounts to eevtn millions, and
against which no man says a word.
Mu Suki.din: Allow me to ad-i
one word. The pressut govcrnmeat
of Louisiana has paid, by issuing its
bonds, 4,000,000 of floating eiebi
created by the Democratic Legisla
ture elected iu 1SC5, which, by llie
way, was the most expensive L gis
ture thrtt has sat ia that State sincj
the war, except the present Legisla
ture at its last session.
Mb Stevksi3on : All such tilings
are forgotten on the ether side, if
they were ever known. They quite
forget that when the reconstructed
government was inaugurated the debt
was 14,000,000 ; add 7,000,000 for
Uvccs, and 21,000,000 are accounted
The State of 'Texas is said to ba
overwhelmed with debt, I have here
the official statement, which shows
that the Slata of Texas has now
debt or 1,454 88". That State has
ninety million acres of land The
value of property there has ii creased
more than one hundred million dol
lars since the clos.e of the war.
While pioperty in slaves h3 been
destroyed, all other species e l prop
erty in that State are worth more
than they were before the war.
Mk. Deck ; Dots not the gnntlo
mau know tiiat the Legislature ot
that Slate has given tway to ra'l
roads, without any lieu or reserva
tion, trom twelve and a half to four
teen nuHion dollars, and ust the
taxation this year, ha3 s'.iown by the
books nhicli the gentleman h:is, is
ever five million dollar? ?
Mk. Stevsnson : I do not know
what the tsxation in Texas is, but
know she is building echoed houses
by the hundred, she is establishing
free echoed j over that vsst domain,
an empire in itself. The first free
common schoel openrd in lex
as was begun last September. Of
course the State has had to levy tax
es to cairv on this work of education,
but her Constitution requires it, and
what have gentlemen who denounce
ignorance to sav against education?
S) far as lam advise", no aid has
j ct been given iu money for bonds to
railroads, though about twelve mil
lions have been promised to be
I ropcrly secured.
I do not follow ali these cxagera
lions, it wrre improper at this licur
these instances must- snflice to show
their character ; but I will hlate lhil
the figures which I have buen exim
ining md considering for several
months will sho.v, when exhibited to
this House and to the country, that
there has been in the South fcincc
the close of the war aa increase in
the value of property to the extent
of over three hundred million dol
lars, This i3 the result of ihe volun
tary labor of the treedmeu whom the
Deirocrals refuse to educate, and
would have refused to liberate, and
whom it appears they would not
disfranchise in order to take society
"on its base." According to the ideas
of the degenerate Democracy of these
days, the base of the pyramid of so
ciety is compesid of the arisiocrat'c
few, tnd the apex is forme t by fie
people in mass.
Gentlemen ladui-r ia eleclsmaiion
against taxes in the Southern State1.
The figures will show that ln&tea I e.f
taxation being grc?s and bard, n
some ia the South, tfce entira tsxes,
State, county, city, and town, wcin
but little more for 1S70 in the eleven
Southern States, than were levied in
the same year tor S'.ate and and local
purposes in the single State of Ohio
alone. Has any gentleman anything
to say against Ooio ? If Le has let
him say it, and he may go unanswer
ed. Not only does it cDinpare so
favorably with Ohio, but it is not
one half ihe amount levied for 1870
in the Democratic State of New
York ; thout.li thee State are leveo,
and ccnt'in nianv millions of people;
though i hey had to begii at the
ground and re-establish governments
which have been overthrown in blood
and rpin ; though they had to estab

tablisb public improvements which
had been almost destroyed, and
though they have been compelled to
