The foar Supreme Court Judjzeti, of the

Value to the people.
Both the Senate and the House hae
passed the bill organizing a tribunal to
assist in counting the electoral vote. Tl.e
Senate vote on it was fotfy-seven for ami
seventeen against, only one Democrat '
voting uay. The vote in the House stood,
one hundred and nineteen for and eighty
six against nearly all those voting in ti e
negative beitg Republicans. The Re
publicans Lave selected to represent them
on the tribunal, Senators Morton, Ld
lunods and FreJinghuysen, andUepresen
tatives Garfield andHoar. The Democratic
Senators are Thurman and Bayard, two
of our ablest and purest Statesmen. "Ii
strikes us aa the height of impudence for
Morton and Garfield, who fought the tri
bunal with all the fero'jitj of their fiend
ish natures, to seek and olttiitt places1 on
it after i- is established. The Itepubl i
caus have thus placed on the tribunal
their inteusest partisans men who will
not care a farthing (or their oaths, wbo
will seek only one eud, and that the suc
cess of Hayes. The only fairness we can
Lope for rests on the fire Supreme Court
Judge6. Democrats are sanguine that
Tildeu will be couuted in, and the voting
of the Congressmen showed that both par
tics think the chances are that way. The
Judges are nearly all Republicans, but we
believe they will deal with the question es
they would any legal proposition. If
they decide that it is unconstitutional to
g,j behind the electoral vote, then they
may declare Hayes elected, if the Oregon
matter does not stop them. Our Sena c-r

yesterday evening by a lai0 jmgonly

airainat it. Everybody seems to feel an..
breathe easier. Countenances that have
worn a sober aud sad look are brightened
vith looks of hope aud joy hope for the
future aud joy that a peaceable bettlt
lyeut of the Presidential juc;tiou is cer
tain a,(i sure. It i said that Gen. Sher.
man feels gre v relived, aui is glad the
b'.ll Las passed both af f ua- he
does not altogether coincide w"!? "- kro'h
er, the Senator, in his views. It is rela
ted of him that he said to Lis brother,
"John, you politicians will ruin this coun
try the first thing you know.1' He took
great interest iu the debate on the bill in
tc Senate. ' Conkliog'e? speech is pro
nounced the greatest of his life, and one
of the ablest ever made in the Senate.
Only one Democrat voted against the bill
in the Senate, and I believe eighteen in
lho llo.iao. Jt is almost universally con
ceded lliat Tilden will be inaugurated.
When I say universally I meau, nearly
every One I hear speak of it. Some of
the Democrats are afraid that the coin
mi6siou will decide for Hayes, and the
Republicans say it will decide in favor of
'i'ilden. Of course no man can tell who
the commission will decide iu favor of.
t: i . r i , , . -
1- roia wuai i nave Eeen ana neara x am
satisfied of one thing, aud that is, that h
conspirator had determined to count i
Hayes, aud then the House would Lav
beeu forced to the alternative of either
equare back down or the inauguration of
Mr. lilde'n by exercising its coustitu
tioual prerogative, electing the l'residcn
and theu we would hid a sad speetacl
of two Presidents, with nothing to decid
except the arbiter of nations, war. Th
till, if it does no other good, defeats the
conspirators, aud completely explodes th
doctrine that the President of the Senat
counU the vote. Whatever ihe result
may be, the country will accept it; an
mat is more tliau cau be said it sometinng
of the kiud had not been adopted. It
wow sayl the opponent of the bill
headed by Morton fc to., will try and iu
duce the President to veto it, but I Lard
ly think he will. Great interest was fel
by all the people Lere iu the bill, aud dar
iug the debate upou it. The Senate and
Hou60 galleries were crowded to over
flowing. More than oue hundred people
including some ladies, itaid in the Senate
galleries all night the night the Senate
was debating it. The Tennessee delega
tion voted solid for the bill. Jsext Tues
day is the day designated iu the bill for
each House to elect the five commissions
crs from each House. If the Sennte will
select the men that have been suggested
to-wi1: Edmonds, Conkling, Frelinghuy-
sen, Bayard and Thurman, and the House
will select such men as Field, Tucker
' iyne, Hoar and McCrary, the decision by
lem would be accepted by the country as
istand right, for though they are parti
ins they are regarded as men of integrity
Who the fifth man of the Supreme
' jurt will be is mere conjecture, but as
"r. Davis has been elected to the Senate,
: will not probably be chosen. Mr
radley will more than likely be the filth.
t any rate, if the President approves ihe
ill, a peaceful solution of the question
11 be reached. I (should not be sur
. .ised if the commissioners should de
ide that there had been no election bv
he people, and that the House and Sen
ile would have to elect the President and
Vice-President. This bill has been the
ull-absorbing topic iu ihe "circles" since
ts report by the joint committee, and
consequently news upon any other sub
ject id scarce.
I went to see Sardauapalus last night.
Hie scenes, costumes, etc., are splendid,
fut there is a little too much "Black
CrooLism" in it for refined tastes, yet tbe
house was crowded. The actiug was
medium. It is a sad commentary upon
public taste that such plays t an draw but
' ter houses than more refined and decent

The Hew Senators'
After the 4th of. March there will be
a material improvement in the United
States Senate, both in the number and
ability of the Democratic side of that
body. Lamar goes iu from Mississippi;
Garland from Arkansas; Coke from Tex
as; Morgan from Alabama; McPherson
from New Jersey; Harris and Bailey
from Tennessee; and Judge Davis from
Illinois.. From the Republican States
we find Vindoni from Minnesota; Blaine
from Maiue; Hoar from Massachusetts,
and Hitchcock from Nebraska. Blaine
maybe said to be worse than Morrill,
who he Bucceedi,!and the same may not be
aid of Hoar, who succeeds Koutwell. The
electiou of moderate Republicans by Re
publican Legislatures, is a rebuke to the
administration and the conspirators who
are seeking to destroy the government, to
which ihey had better pay some attention.

ASSURANCE OF PEACE.

Firmly believing that Tilden and Hen

follow the assertion and execution of the

Tha Unjust Taxation of E&cki.
ve pubusn in tnia issue au article on
the proposed repeal of the Federal taxes
imposed on the banking institutions of
the country, to which we direct especial
attention. We learn that petitions are
going up to Congress from all parts of
the Union, signed by men of all voca
tions, asking tbat body to grant relief to
banks from special tax levied on them
during the war by the government, to
meet the emergencies created is that
period, and which have never ben ma
terially lessened. These taxes were nev
er imposed in this or any other civilized
country previous to our civil struggle and
are nowkuowu only in the United States.
I heir burden has become so irreat that
the banks in all the Btatei of the Union
are begiuning to grow nervous under its
load and are asking for relief. Under
the present system the banks are forced
to charge enormous rates of interest and
to require heavy payment from their cus
tomers generally, for nil services render
ed. Thus it wiil be seen at a glance that
the real sufferers are the producing and
manufacturing classes, many ot whom de
pend on borrowing mouey from the banks
with which to carry on their respective
enterprises. And this is the underlying
reason of the necessity of a reform. The
masses of the people are taxed to death.
often insidiously and indirectly, by the
overnment and tbey do not know it.
hey feel that a constant diain is wast
ing their ?nergic9 and snapping their
most precious vitality.aud yet they do not
perceive that the Federal government is
the hidden cause of all the unaccounta
ble financial disasters which overtake
them. The enormous special tax on
banks, which is really class legislation
and doubtless unconstitutional, is one of
the many methods by which the people
are made to pay tribute to the govern
ment without koowiuir if The subject
of class taxation is becoming the night
mare of our republic nnd the sooner its
g'ier features, such as the one under
ousidt raiiou. are abolished from our
ttitute books the better and healthier
wiil be the Riinofphern whic'i warms in
to a continued expansion the principles
of free government or chills tbem with

fFrin the Cincinnati Enquirer.J
Washington, Jan. 24th. Senator
Coukling finished his speech on the Com
promise Electoral biii to-day. It has
been the greatest ' oraforial effort of his
life. History will rank it with the best
efforts ot Webster, Calhoun and Clay.
Yesterday it was Ferry the embodiment
of the infamous proposition tbat to tbe
President of tbe Senate belonged the
right of counting the electoral vote wbo
fell before Conkling's critical analvsis
ot the Constitution and precedents. To
night Morton and Sherman, as propaga
tors of that fallacy, promoters of fac
tion?, partizan opposition, and instiga
tors of the Jireful necessity which would
force one man to assume super-const it u
hi power, and place a usurper in the
White House, lie prostrate under Conk
liug's complete re'utation of their assc-r-
t;ons and his scutbing denunciation of
their methods. The cobwebs ot doubt
they epuu he has swept away with his
restless logic. He baa smitten the con
spirators hip and thigh with their own
Words wouid fail to pair.!, or portray
the dramatic power, which the Xe
York Senator displayed to-day. Morton,
brazen-faced, sat through it all in his
place, almost, within reach of Conkling's
sweeping gestures; but the angry look in
his eyes, the effected snear about his
mouth, and the angry tone of his occa
siorial interjections, which could
not be altogether suppressed, showed
plainly how terribly the chief of the
bloody shirt brigade was suffering under
the biting sru'iem which fell from Conk
ling's iip3. Every phase was f ugar-coat-cd
in language most perfectly parliamens
tar; but the wormwood undernenib.
8iCrman, livid with ager and baffled
bate, sat next, to Morton, his eyes cast,
down, his fingers toying nervously with
pencil nnd paper. Above these two
tvnkliiig's tall torm towered. Toward
them he laced almost constantly, and
through voice and gesture there seem
ed to run a thread of triumph and de
fiance as though the favorite son of New
York was conscious at lust of having
routed the ctrpet-baggera who have
sought to make Him a Prodigal Son iu
Lis own party.

The Electoral Tribunal.
WASHINGTON, Jan. Vj. The vote in
ihe fcenate on the liiiectorai bin was
somewhat of a surprise. It was expected
that more than one Democrat would vote
ugainst it, and that more Republicans
would oppose the measure. i nere are
s me facts connected with the nay vote
worthy of special mention. In the first
luce, the argument urged against the
bill WM it' unconstitutionality, and yet

to observe that while twenty-one Repub

voters for the measure, twenty six
were cast by Democrats, and of the sev"
enteen against, it only one was given by a
It is also worthy of special mention that
in all ihe speeches made by Republican
Senators against the bill great stress was
laid by them on the fact that it was a sur
render to the Democrats; that the Repub
licans who supported the measure were
yielding to Democratic clamor, and eon
ceding to that parly advantages which so
could obtain in no otbef way. It is al it
notorious that in private conversation
many Republicans, Senators and Repre
senatives, wha oppose the measure, ad
mit that they do so for political s3sons
only. They say the result of this arbit
ration will be a judgment in favor of Til

Radial leaders know the weakness of
I heir case, and confess that ail their re

their claim to the Chief May.lU'a!a to a
fair aud honest tribunal, and suffer it to
pass upou both the law aud the facts in

decided by lot in the selection of the fifth
Judge ws the merest subterfuge. They
know tbat it is impossible for the nun
Judge to be in the interest of tbe Demo

On tus other hand, the t'emociats re
ly altogether upon the strength of their
case, and are therefore willing to accept a
tribunal which will pass judicially upon
the law as well as the evideuce involved
They have no fears whatever in regard to
the lacln. Jbcir committees sent to Flor
ida and Jjoutsiana haye fade such per
fectly clear cases that, to use the lan
guage of oue of the members ot the coin
mitte sent to the latter State, they would
be willing to go before any respectable
court in Christendom and rest it upon a
simple statement o! tbe law aud facts.
Tbe only fear expieBsed by even
doubtiu JJemocrats here is that it may
be held by the Judges that the action of
he State authorities cannot he question,

the Democratic side who believes that any
one of the five Judges will hoi J . that the
action of the Returning Board of Louis
