The CoDgrcti, which meets thin day at the
'Cpltol, is Inrcited with' grand privileges
and charged vvjth "grave responsibilities.
Their opportunities for doing good or work
ing tU to the nation are inch as fall to the
lot of but Jew "Congresses." The legislation
for thlrty-stx States Is devolved upon the
, Representatives of twenty-six Statei, under
circumstances which increase their added re
sponsibilities an hundred fold. Had there
been no rebellion, no revolution, no civil
war; had the Representatives of ten States
obtained "leare of absence" at a time when
everything 'was working well with all' the
States, tho additional labor Of legislation
might hare been assumed by the twenty-tix
with a reasonable prospect of, discharging
thelrjnereased duties to the satisfaction of
the whole country. But In this crisis the
extraordinary legislation Is required to be
done in regard to the affairs of States disor
ganiied by civil war, presenting questions
growing moro difficult of adjudication with
each hour of delay. Whether local interests,
or a blind, headlong partisanship, or a petty
ambition to force individual schemes upon
the country shall actuate a majority of this
Congress, or whether selfishness shall disap
pear in tho broad light of patriotic states
manship, and a desire to sacrifice Individual
interest and to forego individual opinions
for the public good shall prevail, are ques
tions of greater moment in this session of
Congress than at almost any former period
In our history.
The golden opportunity of restoration
upon Mr. Lutcom's plan having been thrown
away at the outset, we have drifted farther
and farther from his ideas of reconstruction.
The South Is practically a Poland under our
rule, ana it is proposed by certain theorists
who ore affiliated with tho party holding an
all-powerful majority, to apply stringently
their cherished plans for the remedy of ex
isting evils. The people of the North were
made to believe that they were still fighting
against the rebellion at the polls in the late
elections, and they cast their ballots, as they
supposed, to give It a finishing blow. They
were surrounded with the relics of the past
conflict the tattered banners carried home
from the battle-fields were displayed in their
public places, the crutches of the maimed
Survivors of the conflict sounded hollow on
the pavements, awakening echoes from the
tombs of slain heroes, in their own house
holds were the vacant places of their strong
ones struck down in the war, their wives and
daughters were clothed in mourning, and
when their politicians told them, "the rebel
lion is not yet put down it is raising its
ugly front again you are in danger from it
In the Congress of the nation," why the peo
ple swept the country in a mighty wave for
the radicals. The copperhead Democracy,
too, assumed the attitndo best calculated to
confirm the view taken by the radicals, and
thus made their triumph with the people easy
On this strong wavo of radicalism has
been borne into the halls of our national
legislature the boldest and rashest Constitu
tion tinkers and manufacturers of Utopian
schemes oi government ever elected, we sup
pose, in this nation, lien who arc far wiser
in their own estimation than the Trainers of
this Government or any other, have obtained
places in our national councils and are eager
to try their bands on the governmental ma
chinery. Men of the samo ideas, who were
chosen previously, liaio been stimulated by
the result of the late elections to make new
vows of cngcanco against the South and
against The Psmidkxt, vtlio has dared to
disagree with them. Humiliation, not res
toration, is their object, and they belong to
that class of political partisans who do not
scruple to fight against any and every plan
of adjustment that is acceptable to the op
position, and who arc ready to abandon their
own schemes whenever their political oppo
nents have accepted them. If they propose
universal suffrage and universal amnesty,
and are surprised by indications that the
South will accept it, then they straightway
condemn it; and with this clan of radicals
there is no surer method of defeating any
measure they proposothan to get it accepted
by the South and advocated by the Democ
racy at tho North. Now the country can
not afford to have its legislation controlled
by such moth es. Partisan hatred, narrow
prejudices that count everything bad merely
because it is assented to by political antago
nists, should have no place in our congress
ional halls in this crisis.
We believe tho people will hold their rep
rcscntatit cs accountable for some practicable
plan of speedy restoration. They have armed
Congress with irresistible power, so far as a
majority is concerned, for the purpose of en
abling them to execute some plan by which
tho States will be allowed to resume their
relations in the Confederacy, and they will
not be pleased to see tho work retarded by
the fantastic tricks of impracticable theorists
or self-sufficient self seekers. The people will
have some reflections forced upon them dur
ing tho c oming winter in a manner they have
not been accustomed to for several years past.
The reactionary results of speculation and
overtrading arc beginning to be felt in the
land. Manufacturing and other business was
" tided over" the elections, but now the mills
aro curtailing to quarter and half time.
Trado is depressed, and men out of employ
ment and suffering under pecuniary embar
rassment, with high taxation, will examine
political matters with a severe scrutiny
never exercised by them in flush times.
Whether they can afford to have taxa
tion 'kept up or increased, by governing
tho States lately in rebellion as Territories,
or to forego much longer the advantages
that would result from reconstruction on a
fair basis, or to lit (till while Congress de

TIIE NEW TELEGRAPHIC NEWS
ASSOCIATION DECISION OF
THE WASHINGTON PRESS.
The daily press of this city numbering
five journals have formed an association
for the purpose of facilitating the procuring
of a greater variety and more accurate news,
to tho end that journalism In the National
Metropolis may reach a still higher state of
perfection and become second to none in the
country in point of industry or ability.
The association have agreed to dispense
with tho telegraphic news of the " New York
Associated Press," hitherto a gigantic mo
nopoly, unincorporated and irresponsible,
and have entered into an engagement with
the " United States and European News As
sociation " to supply the five daily morning
and evening journals of this city with news
from every part of the world. Our tele

Everything is in readiness at Wall's Opera
House to bring out to-night the new play of
"Griffith Gaunt." The leading parts will be

that metropolis says :
"The character of Kate Peyton is admi

could it have been entrusted than to those of
that charming actress. Miss Hose Kttikoe.
The character of Griffith is a peculiar one,
and one that is not easily managed. Mr.

and has so far facilitated the disscmlnalloa of

it under seal to Government officers in all
the principal cities In the Union, to be deliv

This may be true if so, it will not be made
public until to-morrow.
A REVOLUTIONARY SCHEME.
We learn that at the Radical caucus held
Saturday evening, the programme was pre
sented declaring the State organisations
of the ten excluded States to be unconstitu
tional, and providing for the appointment of
commissioners by Congress with power to
organize military forces, including blacks, for
the "protection" of the public interests, and
to call conventions for the purpose of organ
ising State governments that shall be ac
ceptable to Congress. This plan met
with some opposition, and was not adopted
finally, but lays over to an adjourned meet
ing Wednesday night next The adoption
and execution by Congress of such an in
famous official national project will be an ac
knowledgment that the rebellion was a suc
cess, that the Union was actually destroyed,
and that the precious life, and blood, and
treasure sacrificed in the war to crush out
the rebellion and preserve the Union was all
in vain. May this nation be preserved from
such a humiliating position before the eyes of

A Refreshing Case ol Congressional
The Hon. Ferxaxdo Cobtez Beaxaic,
member of Congress from Michigan, lately
donated to the Treasury Department the
sum of $509.72, which he claims is in excess
of the amount justly due him for mileage,
but awarded him by the committee on that
subject The committee, it appears, made
out Mr. Beaxak's mileage via New York,
whereas he comes to the capital via Pitts
burg, which makes the before-mentioned re
duction. Members or Coxobess have nearly all ar
rivedno trains off the track, no necks
broken. The members who received the
" Chicago circular," and acted upon it by
coming here a week ago, will have a place
assigned them in the procession to-day and
will be provided at the "banquet" with a
special table in the centre of the hall, ele
vated above the others so that they may be
more distinctly observed.

been foraging in the Northern States since

The undersigned, citizens of Baltimore,
return judges of every election precinct in
said city, respectfully state to your honora
ble body that at the late election held in No
vember we acted in conducting the election
for members of the Fortieth Congress of the
United States, as well as for other officers,
and that in the Second congressional district
ot Maryland, being in part in the first seven
wards of our said city, the Hon. John L.
Thomas, jr., had 2,839 votes, which we be
lieve to have been all legal, according to the
reanlrements of the Constitution of Mary
land as last adopted. We also state that
Joseph Stewart, Esq., had, in the Third con
gressional district of Maryland, 4,568 votes,
which we believe also to have been all legal
votes, the same bclnc deDOsited at the said
election, according to law, In tho last thir
teen wards of said city, being mo wnoie

further state that Stevenson Archer, had, In
the said Second congressional district, in the
first seven wards in tho city of Baltimore,
3,009 votes for member of the ortietn uon-
Eess of the United States; and that Charles
Phelps had, in the said Third district of
Maryland, 5,545 votes for member of the
same Congress. We further state that un
der the solemn obligations imposed by our
office, ihat since tho election and prior to
fully executing the certificates of election,
which the law calls for, we have become con
vinced that a largo majority of the ballots
cast for said Archer and Phelps wero so cast
by persons disfranchised for disloyalty by

though we are tne judges oi inc election we
may not be able to withhold our certificates
of election from the latter, wo are fully Im
pressed with the belief that Messrs. Thomas
and Stewart recelvod a largo majority of
legal, loyal ballots cast, and that, therefore,
they ought, In view of these facts, to occupy
seats In the said Fortieth Congress.
It will be remembered that Thomas and
