CeifeitEIM RAM ADJOUHIKKD, BUT
THE OeTERNHEirT CONTINUES.
.The Thirty-ninth Congress has adjourned
1U first session, for which we render thanks.
The country Is no longer in danger. Let the
people rejoice all the people of alt the
thlrty-li States of this glorious Union I
, History will make this record, that no de
liberate body of men ever assembled on
earth with better opportunities for the ac
complishment of good than this Congress
has possessed, (and thrown away.) nor one
which exhibited less capacity to grapple with
said to master the great questions of the day.
On the Sth day of December last eight
months ago when the Thirty-ninth Congress
assembled rumor wonld hare1 it that Tiik
PauiDiiii wonld demand the admission of
the Senators and Representatives of the late
ly rebellions States to their seats. The two
bodies effected their organization and re
ceived Tn. PwtsfDixT's message, which was
remarkable for its clearness of statement and
force of diction, but not more so than It, was
guarded against infringing upon the constitu
tional rights and privileges of each branch of
the national legislature to be the judge of
the election and qualification of its own
members. Tint Pauinrrr neither assumed
or demanded anything beyond the clearly
defined limits of his office. Rumor, with her
lying tongues, was silenced for a time. But
after eight months of debate, consisting
chiefly of scolding, vituperation, tod bitter
and unjust allegations of all sorts, wholesale
and retail, against Tnx Pkesidk.it, declara
tory that eleven States of the Union should
not hare representation until negro tuff rage
teas recognized in each and all of the tale
rebellious Statu, to the amazement of the
public, during the closing hours of the ses
sion, a right-about-face was ordered, and the
very principle for which Tni Phisidim had
been so long contending', being subjected
meanwhile to the vilest congressional abuse
from diminntive Ihoiksou, of Illinois, down
to Toad. Srevrxs, and yet lower down to J
that senatorial " whitewashed' Chas. Scxxkr,
was acknowledged, and Tennessee was ad
mitted as a loyal State, and her Senators and
Representatives, upon taking the required
oath, were admitted to their seats. Thus
Congress, at the eleventh hour, yields to
Tsrt Pibmidist's policy in favor of the right
of the late rebellions States to representation
Nearly one year ago Tux Fksibivt made
earnest efforts to procure the trial of JcrrER
sok Dayts. In order to remove many legal
objections that seemed to stand in the way,
Tub Pbuidext, after advising with some of
the ablest constitutional and criminal lawyers
in the land on the subject, conferred, verbally
and in writing, with the Chief Justice of the
Supreme Court of the United States to as
certain whether he would hold court in his
circuit and try the arch-traitor. The Chief
Justice refused to hold court behind federal
bayonets, and suggested the reference of the
whole subject to Congress. There being no
other alternative, Tin Pmsinrjir followed the
suggestion of the Chief Justice, and laid the
whole subject before the two Houses In De
cember last After wrangling, misrepresent
ing facts, blustering, speechifying and vllli
fying the Executive Department of tho Uov-
eminent for eight months, Congress resolved
on the last day of the session to do
tuMi'iy leaving Jeiterson Davis a State
prisoner without a trial, and Tiir FnrsiDFM
without power to arraign him before the
highest tribunal in the land, where he should
properly be tried, and the Chief Justice still
indisposed to hold court I
During the last eight months Congress has
asserted that it would never adjourn until
the negro was guaranteed tho right of un
qualified suffrage In tho several States and
til the District of Columbia I Tiir Prfsi
dent was in favor of leaving the settlement
of the suffrage question to tho people of the
Bevcral States themselves, and favored qual
ified suffrage for the colored men of the Dis
trict of Columbia. Congress, led by the col
ored man's friends Tuad. 8tj!vfs and
Cuas. Scvner adjourned, leaving suffrage
in the States to the people by a tote in Me
Senate of 34 to 4 and refusing to grant et eti
qualified suffrage to the patriotic and edu
cated colored man of the District of Colum
bia! Thus Congress yielded to The Presi
best's policy with reference to suffrage in
the States, Ijnt had neither tho capacity,
manly courage, nor statesmanship to riso to
the humanitarian policy of Tiir President
with reference to suffrage in the District I
Thus the radicals of the Thirty-Vinth Con
gress leaves the poor African out In the cold.
After eight months of toil Congress
brought forth an electioneering document
and called it a "Plan of Reconstruction."
It was divided into "sections" like town lots.
Thad. Stevens Bald he would not give the
map of his finger for the entire plan nlthout
the "third" section. A single Senatorial cau
cus knocked the "third" section into oblivion
and the rest was considered "good enough to
go to the people on f "never mind whether
it is incorporated into the Constitution or
not" That was the spirit of the caucus
TnAD.SiEVEKs, with thatsaintly reconciliation
whiji has always characterized his Christian
course, concluded, as he was legislating for
men and not for angels, that he would take
the "plan" minus the third section I Ten
nessee took the pill and walked into Con
gress. Tlus plan uiti never become a part if
' the Constitution, therefore it Is without force
or effect hi Tennessee, or anywhere else, and
her next Legislature, whh.li will be a very
different body from the present, will repeal
the unconstitutional action uf the existing
JJiowlow cabal, and Tenuceseo will thereby
purge herself, remove the burden from her
neck, and stand erect by the side of her sis
ter States In the Union. At present her star
,1s not clearly seen. It Is dimmed by a po
litical brown low jnitsms. i ne people win
' cosily right that matter.
t Eight months ago Congress announced
.that rebels were to be disfranchised, traitors
were to be tried, negroes were to be crowned
with aflrgf; that the rebellion was a success
and eleven States were out of the Union,
,Arter bullying, and talking, and resolving,
and Instituting Star Chamber Investigations,
the radical Congress adjourns with its jour
nals loaded down with evidences of plunder
scuemes, iue rav.. ui wmih iui amoiwm.
prevented from being 'carried Into effect;
rebels aro not disfranchised! traitors, fire
hundred of whom Tin Presidxrt has ready
for trial,- hare not been provided for; the ne
gro ,has no suffrage, and the theory, eight
months ago, that tho rebellion carried the
States out has been exploded and acknowl
edged by the radicals to be a fallacy. Such
are some of tho upa aud downs, In and outs,
and startling inconsistencies of the first ses
sion of the Thirty-ninth Congress. Vr'e have
so far shown what it has not done.
The principal business accomplished by
this most extraordinary body was
1st To deprive Tin Prfsideht of the
power of giving a little government adver
tising to a Union journal the only onein
Washington that resisted treason from first
to last and fought traitors without gloves at
heavy sacrifice, asking no favors and giving
2d. To exert every effort to pass 8tetexs
Forxey lobby jobs the air-line railroad to
New York ; the League Island swamp navy
yard; the Montana plunder scheme; the
Washington canal bill; and about forty
smaller jobs covered up in appropriation
and other bills.
3d. To vote themselves each a salary of
fire thousand dollars I
4th. To refuse to voto the employees of
the Departments, who do double the work of
Congressmen, a trifling increase of salary.
So much for the present The subject is
pregnant with rich material. We shall refer
to it again, if not again and again and again,
before the people of the United States de
posit their ballots in the electoral urns next

THE NEW HECRETAItY OF THE
The appointment and confirmation of the
Ilon.O. II. llRowHtxa, otlllinols, as Secretary
of the Interior Department, is one that can
not fail to strengthen the Cabinet of Presi
dent Johnson, whilo it will receive the confi
dence and congratulations of lhe public. It
is one of those eminently wise and judicious
selections tefjich meets, with the approbation
of the whole community.
Mr. IlROWMita has held high judicial posi
tions in his own State; has also represented
Illinois in the Senate of the United States,
and is a member of the legal profession of
conspicuous standing, having by exten
sive practice and great culture and ability
won its noblest laurels and reward.
To the conservative Union men of the
country this appointment is especially wel
come. Judge IIrowxino has always been
looked upon by them as a leader. Probably
no single man was more instrumental in
bringing about the first nomination of Abra
ham Lucomi at Chicago in 1BC0 than Judge
Drowning. His calm and dispassionate pre
sentation of the claims of Mr. Lincoln; his
clear analysis of the position overcame every
prejudice and obstacle and produced that
glorious result Throughout Mr. Lincoln's
presidential career Judgo Drowninu was
among his most intimate associates and most
constant advisers; and to the hosts of loyal
people to whom the memory of Lincoln is
dear, this recognition of his near friend will
be received with the utmost cordiality.

which was supported by a strong reminder that he

entitled "Aa aet avweilag tb Territory of Montana

Th bill oatelns four eectlona, tb flnt ox which

provided that th said lands shall rvrt to th
'United States la eat tb above-mentioned Iron
works be not erected within tb specified Mm, and
provided that until tb title to th said land shall
nave been perfect, tha timber shall not be out off
from more than one seotlon of tb d lands." t
To confer the special privileges specified la thl
fourth section appear to b th chief object of tb
bill, tbe provisions ef which ar subject to some of
th most Import en t objection that Induced m to
return to th Senate with my disapproval tbe bill
entitled 'An act to nabl tb New York and Mon
tana Iron Mining and Manufacturing Company to
purchase a oertaln amount of th publl lands not
now In market" That bill authorised th earn
corporation to setect and urv ey In tb Territory of
Montana, In squar form, twenty -on section of
land, three of which might contain coal and Iron
or, for which lb minimum rat of $1.15 per acre
wu to be paid. Tb present bill omit these see
tlom of mineral lands, and direct th Surveyor
General to select and survey the timber lands; but
It contain the objectionable feature of granting to
a private mining and manufacturing corporation
xeluatv rights and privileges In the nubile do
main which art by law. denied to Individuals.
Th first ehoie of timber land In tb Ter
rltore la beetowjd upon a corporation foreign
to th Territory, and over which Congnss ha
no control. The Surveyor General of th district,
a public officer who should have no connection
with any purchase of public land, 1 mad tb
agent of th corporation to select th land; tb se
lections to he made In th absence of all competi
tion and oyer eleven thousand acres ara bestowed
at the lowest price of public land. It la by no
means oertaln that th substitution of alternate
sections for the compact body of land contemplated
by th other bill la any leu lnjurloui to the public
Interest; for alternate sections atripped of timber
ar not likely to enhance the value of tho re
erred by tb Government Be thla aa It may, thla
bill bestows a large monopoly of public lands with
out adequate consideration! confers a right and
privilege In quantity equivalent to seveoty-two
pre-emption rlgbtsj Introduces a dangerous system
of privileges to private trading corporations; and
I an unjust discrimination In favor of traders and
speculators agalast Individual settlers and pioneers,
who are seeking homes, and Improving our Western
Territoriu. Such a departure from th long-Mtab
lUbed, wise, and Just policy, which bu heretofore
governed the disposition of the publl fund, cannot
recclv my sanction. Th objections enumerated
apply to tb fourth section of tb bUL Tbe first,
second, andVjthlrd seotlons, providing for the ap
pointment of a urveyor general, register, and re
celver, are unobjectionable, If any necessity re
quires tbe creation of the offices, and tb addi
tional eipenui of a new surveying and land dl
triot But they appear In thl lnctane to be only
needed a a part of tb machinery to .enable 'the
11 New Tork and Montana Iron Mining and Manu
facturing Company'1 to oaeur thee privileges; for
I am Informed by the proper department, In a com
munication hereto annexed, that there I no public
necessity for a lurveror general, register, or re
ceiver in Montana Territory, since It forms part of
an existing surveying and land district, wherein
the public business Is, under preunt laws, trans
acted with adequat facility, so that th provisions
of tb first, second, and third sections would occa
sion needless expanse to th General Government.
