destructives havo taken from the people's
pockets. The National IntclUtjencerj
published at Washington, and having pe
culiar facilities for access to tho official
figures, shows what has been collected'
dnd what has boon expended, as follows :
First, as to rovonuo :
Thoy have, from tho 30th June, 18C1
to January 1st, 1SCS, collected from tho

Somewhat swallowed up in theso amaz
ing sums of monoy, which stagger tho
mind in tho effort to realize them, tho
amount squandered on the Frecdmcn'n
Bureau would roach probably fifty mil
lions. At least, for tho year ending Jan
uary 1, 1S67, aa estimated by Genoral
Howard, Commissioner of tho Bureau,
near twolve millions wore required. At
this rate, for the thrco years tho .Bureau
has been in existence, it has consumed
thirty-six millions ; nnd wo know that a
vastly renter ameunt nt 'east fifty mil
lions lmvo boon spont upon it, all to
keep the Itariicnl party in power.
The rate nt which wo are going to ruin
the astounding sums of money drawn
by the tax-gathorer from tho hard labor
of the people, and spont can be
better understood when wo say that dur
ing the seventy-three years preceding the
war (as estimated recently) the whole ex
penditure of government amounted to
less titan fourteen hundred millions of
dollars, while tho Radical party ju one
year of 1S65, spent nearly nineteen hun
dred million dollars, as above stated.
Sueli an exhibit as this may well strike
tho pcoplo with dismay, and causo them,,
w they do, to cry aloud for relief (rem
so intolerable a burden.

Thedbovo contains all tho royisipns ,
(f tho Constitution in relation to tho
mannor of making the election. JTrom
this recitals the National Intelligence'
ii is manifest ,
1. That it is imperative on each State
to participate in the .election, the words
of the Constitution being mandatory;
''Each Stato shall appoint a
number of olectors." It is not "each
State may appoint; " but "each Stato
shall appoint" This injunction of the
Constitution requires each State to vote
ih tho Presidential election. From this
obligation it cannol. release itself But
while this injunction tovoto is imperative
on each State, it is also equally impera
tive on Congress. If each Stato must
vote, Congress has ao right to forbid it,
either directly , or indirectly. Instead of
endeavoring to prevent a Stato from
Voting, it is tho duty of Congress to facili
tate thd cx'efo'isQ of this duty on tho part j
of tho States. Tako tho caso of Virginia ;
she is a Stato in tho Union ; being such
ftato in the Union, the Constitution com
mands Virginia to vote. Congress, it is
(flear, has no pretence of rjght to com
mand Virginia not lo vote. If Virginia
is required by tho Constitution to vote,
any action by Congross inconsistent
with the command of tho Constitution in
this regard is nugatory.
1 2. As to tho man ner of makine tho
election, that is left t) each State. "Each
State shall appoint, in such manner as
tho Legislatures thereof may dircdt, a
number of electors," etc. Congress lias
nothing whatever to do with tho mannor
of tho 6lcction, excopt that "Congress
may dotormino the timo of choosing tho
electors and tho day on which thoy shall
givo their votes." With this simplo nnd
comparatively unimportant excoption of
fixing tho time of ohoosing tho electors,
and tho day rih which thoy Bhall vot
Congress has nothing whatever to do
with the manner of thB election. It is a
matter loft exclusively to each Stato.
Each Stato lias'authoiity to mako all tho
legislation necessary ta cxecuto tho duty
of voting imposed on it by tho Constitu
tion. Each Stato must; determine for it
self the manner of the election, nnd all
questions arising as to tho legality of tho
election, and the action of each Stato is
conclusive on this tmtject Tf thcro is
iny controversy about tho eloction, it
must be decided by each State, acting by
its own legislation in regard to its own
yotc. Tho certificate of tho electors of
each State is conclusive upon all per
sons as to tho vote of iiuch Stato, Each
Stato decides upon this matter for itself,
and tho certificate of its electors is res
adjudicata to all the rot of tho States,
and evory'department oT tho Fcdoral gov
ernment This was ijna of tho groat
rights resorved by tho Constitution to
each Stato. No one hail a right to go bo
hind the cortificafa of tho elector; of
each State, such certificates being mado
by tho Constitution conclusive evidenco
of what it professed to decide.
3. Tho only duty of Congrose in this
regard is ministerial; simply to bo present
and attest tho counting of tho votes as
certified by the doctor of each Stato :
"The President of the Senate shall, in the
presence of tho Senate and IIouso of
Representatives, open all tho certificates,
and the votes shall then bo counted : the
person having the greatest number of
votes for President shall bo tho Presi
dent, if such number be a majority of
tho whole number of electors appointed."
The President of the Senate is required
imperatively to "open nlthc eertifichtes,"
and "the votes shall then bo count
ed. " Notlwcrction is loft to the Presi
dent of the Scnato ; he "shall open all tho
certificates;" the certificate from a State
is conclusive on him, and as euch ccrtifi
cates deolare the votes, tho rcsul of the
election is arrived at
4. iFrom what wo Iiave written, it fol
lows, we think, beyond dispute, that the
, duty of the Prcsidont of the Senato and
Congress in regard to opening tho certifi-,
cates nnd counting tho votes is purely
ministerial Tha assumption by Congress
of the power whioh is now claimed by
the Edmunds bill to reject the votes of
a portion of the States is aa clear a usur
pation as can possibly be conceived of.
Tho two houses of Congress have refused
to admit Senators and Representatives
to their seats from the Sauthern States,

From tho Janesvillo (Wis.) fjaictte. Auff.17.
On Saturday evening, about 6. o'clock, a
most disastrous tornado passed over tho
IUWU3 01 LiJ. J. faiiio aim yuutou, iu iuu
bounty. On visiting the Bceno, yesterday,
we learned tho following -particulars':
A few light, low clouds were seenflying
from a northwesterly direction a greater
bart of the afternoon, no one in that vicin-
ity fearing any danger from the Storm. At
about G o'clock a light cloud was observed
coming from tbe southeast, moving at a
very rapid rate. At the same time a large
black cloud passed over the Orchard of Mr.
Jacob Schencka. It seems that as Iheseiwo
clouds approached each other they settled
to the earth, a low heavy noise wan heard.
resembling the moving of a- heavy train of
cars, accompanied by terriiic peals or thun
der. The cyclone formed in shape some
thing similar to a large baloon, with a largo
trunk extending to the ground. At this
time it had reached the farm of Mr. HoInJes,
occupied by Mr. Thomas Monahan. The
first damage done was the tearing down of
a few rods of fence, then to a small granary,
lifting.it some, twenty feet in the air, Jand-
iDc on the opposite side of a fence. Next
came a barn, twelve by twenty-five, which
was taken up and torn completely to peicea,
tbe most complete wreck we eversaw. Just
before the tornado struck the barn, i Mm.
Ellen Monahan, an infirm lady, seventy
eicht years of ace. went out to take, care of
a little boy, who was in the barn with his'
sister, about nine years of age. Mrs. Mon
ahan was taken up in the whirlwind and.
instantly killed. The girl was taken up
also (incredible as it may seem) to a height
of fifty feet (some "who witnessed it say one
hundred f&ct), her clothes were torn com-,
pletely oil And carried quite a distance,
doing her no bodily injury. When," asked
how high she waa blown, she answered,
"Oh, sir, I was up almost to the sky."
The storm then took an easterly direc
tion, dropjiing quite down to the earth, sp
low that menstgtcingireilOftuiBtanceaway
coum Bee over me wnoie 01 it, and m it
progress lifted pome eighteen stacks of
grain, carrying orae of it a distance of forty
rods, undoing the bundles and completely
threshing the greater part as it went.
The cloud was about the size of a large
circus tent, and after leaving the farm of
Mr. Holmes, did not again strrka the earth
until it reached the farm of Mr. Briggt,
near Tnrtle creek, where it met terra firms
for thp last Urn?, scattering a few stacks of
wheat, doing no particular damage. From

Mr. Monahan's loss, besides, tho finiily
afflictions, is very great, losing his entire
crop, and every building oh the farm, save
the farm-house. The funeral of Mr?. Mon
ahan was to have been to-day, at the Cath
olic Church, At no place in ita path did ,
it cover more than three rods in indlh, and
when at a distance of three' milrs from the
scene oT its earthly career, it seemed to Toll
over on the side of the hngit balloon, now
and then jtending ont a volley of chained
lightning, accompanied with Iqnd and Tottg'
peals of heavy thunder, and passing- away
in the distance, leaving little or no rain. '
The internal revenue collections n St.
Louis county, Missouri, for the fiscal year 1
ending June 30, were $J,550,000.
