A Degenerate Congress.
It would be a great satisfaction if
the people of the United States could
take a pride in their Congress and
point to it as a safeguard and tower
of strength which can be relied upon
to steadily promote the general good
Alas? it is not so- Unfortunately,
Congress hss become a nest of politi
cians small and narrow, selfish and
prejudiced, with-but few statesmen
in that large body of scheming and
intriguein gtime-servers. Congress is
much of an evil in some respests it
much be admitted, but nevertheless
an evil, and a constant threat. It
should be a wise and beneficent body
of men, but it is not. There are wise
men in it and good men in it, but the
tricksters and self-seekers and cheap-
John politicians are in the majority,
and, therefore, the country is by no
means proud of Congress. The Phil
adelphia Public Ledger, one of the
most patriotic and most conservative
of journals, speaks as follows of our
Congress : "Hoping for an adjourn

strong among those looking with
misgiving and distrust and no little
disgust also upon the performances
at the present session of Congress
The one decisive thiDg accomplished

one-man power in the changing of
the rules to facilitate business. And
where is the facilitation? In pen
sion legislation there has been fur
ther disregard of public interests at
the demand of lobbyists and dema
gogues; in tariff legislation there are
incoherence and discord between the
two Housesboth being under con-
