The report of the joint com
mittee of tlie two houses of
Congress to provide tor the
counting of the electoral vote,
has at last been made. The re
port was unanimous, with one
solitary exception, and that ex
ception, 0. P. .Morton, goes far
to strenthen the belieftliat the
bill is fair, and breaks up the
nice little job that he and Chan
dler and their co-workers in
fraud, had conceived, of count
ing in Hayes, by the aid of cor
rupt and profligate rctunii.iig
bohrds. Senator jtfortori i"s one
of those unscrupulous politicians
who is entirely innocent of
favoring anything that could be
wnstrned into fair dealing with
a question inrolving thu inter
est of his party. II is opposi
tion to the measure, is not a
had. recommendation to the
bill, as reported by the com
mittee, the passage of which is
now scarcely questionable. Jfr.
'lorton may swallow his cha
grin as best he can, and digest
his malignant venom in solitary
grandeur. There is no consid
erable number of even his own
party, who will pcrsUt in trying
to give the count ot the electo
ral vote, a purely partisan bias, '
regardless ot law, right, justice
and the constitution.

Let them be warned in season

By reference to our telegrams
in this morning's Baxxee. it
will be feen that the Canvassing
Board ot Florida, in obedience
to an act of the Legislature of
that State, on counting the re
turns found to be regular and
legal, gave the electoral vote of
the Flower State to Tilden and
Hendricks by 94 majority. This
ought to settle the question, and
we suppose will. Logan ot the
Senate and Chandler of the
Cabinet, will rave and iume,

lTic function of an editor to
make lacts or to ignore them.
He must take hem as they are,
i-.voiding in their publication
whatever merely tends to pro
voke immorality or to gratify a
morbid appetite. A minister
may easily preach against wick
ednoss'in such a way as to stim
ulate cuiiosity regarding it and
to inflame the desire to commit
it. Sensational ministers have
be-m known to do that very
thing in their eagerness to at
tract hearers. This is bad in a
miii'ster, m in an editor.
Brother Talmage says the re
sponsibility of what an editor
publishes is divided between
him and his readers. We ask
no such division. If the paper
is evil, it is the editor who is
at tr.nlt. He has no business to
publish what is unfit to read.
No, let the preachers offer no
palliations tor the offenses of the
editors. Editors havn a great
responsibility, and they ought
to boar it fncmselves.
It was asserted to-day by one
of Grant's stroiig, steadfast
friends, that, as he has but six
weeks further ot power, he is
utterly indifferent to such opin
ions as bis enemies in the House
may form ot him. He means
to act with vigor as decisive as
as that which brought about the
surrender of Appomattox, and
he means to deal with the incip
ient rebels of 1S77 as sternly as
with the full fledged rebels ot
1S05. The person responsible
for this information further
states that Grant asserted that
whoever wondered at this would
have still more to wonder at be
