Washington, April 11. The common
verdict at first thought is that, as a general
thing, Speaker Randall's committee an
nounced to-day are better than in the last
congress, and with some exceptions, make
fair distribution of the ability of the house.
In the opening address the speaker inti
mate.1 that he would appoint committees
without regard to personal considerations.
The selection made known to-day show
that he is to be credited with a modest ef
fort in this direction, but it was not so de
termined aa effort as to prevent his provid
ing ior ins mentis. Mill it is sate to say
tiiat as a rule, the Democrats are pleased
with the composition of the committees
It is equally certain that the Republicans
are displeased. Th? latter complain, in the
first place, that Randall has purposely out
the weak men to the front, aud that he has
classed the Greenbaekers as of the Repub
lican minority except where, by givinjj two
of them chairmanships, he has classed them
w,ui j.o ieuiocrai8. inaivntual complaint
is frequent, Robinson, for instance, want
ed to go on the judiciaiy. He is certainly a
better lawyer than any Republican named
for that committee. Orfh, the Venezuelan
jobber, who, in Republican rule, was chair
man of foreign affairs, wanted to be on the
ommittee, now nt the head of the Republi
can minority, but Randall struck him off on
the revisions of laws. Among the old mem-
:ers on the majority side there is complaint
that too mauy new members were given
chairmanships there being ten such cases
including the two chairtnashipu given to
the Greenbaekers. Western members also
complainthat the Eastern Democrats are
too liberally provided for.
New York, for instance, has live chair
manships, with only eight Democrats in the
house. Pennsylvania, with nine Democrats
jrets four chairmanships, two of which nro
field bv members. Tennessee yets fmie

chairmanships; Maryland gets three; Ohio
captures three, two by new members; Mis
sissippi, three; Georgia, three. The major
ity of chairmans are held by the same men
appointed by Randall to them in the last
congress and who worked for him
iu this congress Blackburn
goes on the appropriations wi
four men ahead of him; Morrison ou th
ways and means with four men ahead of
lam, and then the speaker gives the former
the chairmanship of the committee on ex
penditures in the war department, and the
latter that ot expenditures in the treasury
department. The appointment of Bragg
.. I. . .... at . . .
oi nuscons.ua cna.rmtnoi war claims is
very significant. Bragg is the person who
i l.i I ! itai 1,1. il mitii.an 1. a tJ 1.
delivered such a severe lecture to Southern
Democrats on rebel claims at the lust ses
sion, and Randall purposely appointed him
for the effect it would have in the North.
Out of the fifty -two committees twent-five
chairmanships go to the south, counting
Missouri, Maryland, mid Kentucky as being
south. Mr. Randall confesses that lie was
anxious to prevent any capital being made
in the north out of the charge that the
smith was capturing the capital, and for
this reason kept the southern men back,
and made llrngg chairman of the war

while we ardently hope -because

and cortfldently believe that the
works at South Pass will be successful to a
degreo that wiH enable us to reap the full
benefit of a channel sufficient for our com
mercial wants, and commensurate with our
legitimate ambition as a great sea point, the
papers we have referred to as devoutly
hopothey will fail because they esteem
it for their interest that there should be a
failure. Certainly this is the case with the
C.ucago papers; it should not be but we
fear it is also the case, in a degree at least,
with the Memphis and Cincinnati papers.
Rut the difference, serious as it v, ought not

ot you to gnaw and fatten at our expense
at least you do not at present seem to be
able to think of a more honest and less do
structive way of making a living. But
when we are happy enough to make a
point or two in our own favor cannot our
contemporaries let us enjoy without dispute,
our hardly-earned advantage over the
worms ami the sediment. Must we
have both by imputation even though
we have, in fact, shuffled off both?
Lay on your blisters gentle brothers but do
not lie in the face of high heaven and a
channel sufficient for big ships. Let us have
the benefit of our hardly earned advantage.
Our success does not harm you. On the
contrary it will benefit you. We have been
scourged in many ways. We bear our af
fliction with patience when they come from
a supernal power which we cannot resist.
But we have no patience with malignant
devility, like that of the Commercial, which
hastens to scourge and lie in mere wanton
ness or in the infamous hope of injuring us
without bettering its own condition.

A former soldier in the army of Pius IX
relates that in his regiment there was onco
a brave young Protestant who one day waa
mortally wounded by a cannon ball, and
PTprtt-wx. a wish to eo the pope. "Whew
the pope visited the sick and wounded in
the hospital that evening, the dying Boldier
is said to have remarked, "Holy Father. I
am proud and happy to die in yorir de
fence;" to which the pope replied, "Thanks,
my son." "But, Holy, Father, I am a Pro
testant," said the man. "I am aware of
that, my son." "I know that I am going
to die, but I feel happy and safe since yoil
are near me." The pope raised his hani
and gavo him his blessing. Thereupon the
soldier declared that he wished to die in the
Catholic faith. He was then baptised, an.!
expired soon afterward.
The Rev. A. Bunker, who recently re
turned to this country from missionary
work in Rurmah, gave, in Providence, a
few days ago, an address on the conditio,
possibilities and prospects of the Baptist
Mission in that country. There are four
principle races, lie suid. in Tii-rmnh
distinct from the other the TalainrA ,
Karens, the Burnians and the Shans all ot'
whom are of the Tuscanian race as distin
guished from the Aryan. Baptist missions
are among them all, but the Karen missiou
is thus far the most successful, while the

In all these respects' the Karens, who are
the subject race, arc sunerior. Ther am

reason way so much success has leei
achieved ainone- them; while nnnrhnr
is that they anticipate through Christianity
a national deliverance and elevation.
