What is Congress?
The Constitution says :
"All legislative powers herein
granted shall be Tested in a Con
gress of the United States, which
shall consist of a Senate and House
of Representatives." .
The Constitution further says :
"The Ilouse of Representatives
shall be composed of members
chosen every second year by the
people of the several States," &c.
It further says:
"The Senate of the United States
shall be composed of two Sepators
from each State," &c.
These two bodies, therefore, con
stituted are made a Congress, in
accordance with the chief law of

The Fenian Invasion of Canada at
Yesterday nnd last night's news from
the Canadian border, seemed to justify the
conclusion that the Fenian Invasion of
Canada is at an end for the present. With
the Canadian authorities guarding one side
of the border and the United States autho
rities the other, the invasion of Canada by
the Fenians could not otherwise than prove
a failure. The Fenians that fell into the
hands of the United States military at Buf
falo have not been handed over to the
English authorities, and there Is a doubt
whether they will be handed over to them.
To the Democratic press, the
proceedings of the Democratic
State Convention its platform and
its nominees gives the most un
bounded satisfaction. Never be
fore were they better satisfied.

We would caution our friends making
Eurchases of wool in the country, not to
e over sanguine as to future prices, basing
their views on the present aspect of the
market; for notwithstanding wool is said
to be the lowest commodity on the market,
other commodities are as likely to come
down to meet the price ot wool, as it is to
take an upward turn to meet the prices of
other articles. Woolen goods are very dull
of sale, stocks of both imported and do
mestic are heavy and accumulating ; and
while in view of making early sales, the
recent temporary advance in gold and
light stocks of wool eastward, are pleasant
to contemplate, they might prove unprofi
table if taken as a basis for purchasing with
a view to selling during the summer and
fall months, after wool has commenced go
ing forward in quantity.
