will dispute that tt has in its bosom
alj that peculiar species of religion
that is blended with polities to such
an extent that wo cannot tell the ono

possesses':' That it has within its ranks
those M ho turn churches into political

which may, perhaps, have escaped their
attention. Really, they didn't want the
money; but then tho peoplo aro so
rich, and the country so generous, that
it wouldn't bo graceful to refuso. So
they accepted. Tho Senators and
members of tho lower House aro to re
ceive f 3,000 instead of the foi 'incrSU.OOO
per annum, and the Speaker 83,000, in
addition to mileage; and the compen
sation dates back to tho beginning of
the present Congress. -
Tho thing to be wondered at, after
all, is that they didn't cut deeper.
When they had all the Treasury before
them, whero is tho tiso of being ex
pensively modest? The practice of
public virtue docs not require that men
should m.iko sacrifices of themselves;
and, as there is no telling how long the
opportunity to vote money into their

in high standing, and for years an edi
tor of an influential daily, thus expros
ses himself of the political sense of the
majority of Congress, and what ho be
lieves to bo tho duty of every patriot.
He says :

and to express tho hopo that our Re

country will unite fn it rind give it di
rection? It was time, in my judge
ment, for (his stey to bo taken. 'There
is a party in Congress bound to com
mit the Republican party against this
policy, and thus scctiona'lizo" and des
troy an organization, and it is tho du
ty of every Republican to aid in re
sisting und defeating this unnati-iotic
ndeavor. Tho President's policy is
the only ono that can stand tho test,
and must bo sustained ami carried out
to 1 ho end. We havo had enough of
war; the came of the bloody Ktrug"le
is removed; there remains no longer
any cain.e ot alienation between the
seel ions; let us now havo peace and re
union; let the North and Smith biin
hands in tt common ctfort to restore
fraternal relations, and let tranquility
reign over ft country acknowledging
a common language, a common ' Mm'
and a common allegiance."
Unit is good advice, sensible advice.
patriotic, advice, but tho misfortune is,
that tho Congressional hill contains
too many small- .otato politicians for
such advice to bj heeded. It is like
sowing seed 111 barren ground. Thev
now how by trickery to advance their
own Mages, add to the burdens oCoth-
rs, and legislate in tho vain nttenmt
to pull tho white man down to tho lev
el of the black, but beyond that, for
broad comprehensive views of nnblii-
policy, they aro utterly unfit. We

that the popularity of tho soldier bill
could tarry them along. Many mem
tiers, who wero doubtless privy to the
trick, then professed that they were
opposed to tho increase of tho Congres
sional salaries, but voted for it, in or
der not to defeat tho Soldier Rounty
Rill, which would be imperiled if they
did. They imagined they were throw
ing dust in tho eyes of tho people by
this performance, but it was only tho
ostrich sticking his head in the sand,
leaving tho rest of his person exposed.
Tho voting tho increased salaries to
themselves would, under tho circum
stances of the-Country, belittle better
than a public robbery; but tho manner
in which it was done superadds swind
ling and fraud, and renders (ho trans
action in every respect inlinitely black
er in moral turpitude. Cincinnati
