mented President Jeter on his fair am
Impartial rulings, and expressed hi
i appreciation of the consideration wit]
which the Republican senators had al

was a general Interchange of good feel

These pleasanit episodes were occasion

in reviewig thle work of the sessloi
just ClO.;d, I think it safe to say thai
the late General Assonibly has boo
more conspicuous for What It omittc(
to (10, than for anything it actually ac
eoiplished. Amongst the few nia's
ures passed that are o a publiclarae
ter may be mentioned: Acts th pro
vide for the settlement of the Stati
debt; in accordance with the decisioi
of (he Supreme Court; to amend th
Const.itution with reference to thi
Il16m1estead ito establish a Bureau o
Agriculture; and to provide with anrti
ficial lega all Confederate soldiers Oh<
lost an arm or a leg during the lat,
war. There may be a few others, tha
you will no doubt call attention to il
course of time, but most of the time 0
the session has been consuimed in in
corporating chllrcelio, ferries, trai
roads, and other local enterprises, wit
an occasional bill to change the nam
of John Smith to Thoas Brown an
make him the heir of some meniber o
the numerous Brown family. As re
mrarked in a revious letter there is toI
much special legislation, too muce
valuable time frittered away on loen
matters iln which the general pub1lli
haive 1no interest, too much(I '"gassing,

speech-making. What the remedy is
it is not nay province to suggest, bu
even a ''bird's eye" view of the lat
Sbody would conIvince any observe
that great hnp]rovemenlt could be mad
in the mIemb)ersh)ip of most of th

doubt to sit quiet ly, dlay in and "da

it was noticeable that this lattt

the face of the fact thait the pub'lic it

such is modern legislation, and suchi
