The impeachment Irial ended last
Friday night, and resulted, as nearly
everyone expected it would, in the
acquittal of Judge Page. On three
out of the ten articles of impeach
ment a majority of the Senators vot
d "guilty," but as a two-thirds
vote is necessary to conviction the
judge was declared acquitted of each
and every article and specification of
impeachment. The Senate has been
in session as a high court of im
peachment a little over four weeks
and has cost the State in the neigh

HOUSE OP REPRESENTATIVES,
WASHINGTOK, C, June 17 '78
My dear Sir:Your favor of the 11th mat is at
iiand. I shall certainly do all in my power to pass
the bill you have reference to in your letter I feel
that it is due to the settlers on the frontier, especi
ally those in our own State, who ha\e suffered for
several years from the grasshopper plague I know
what these sufferings are, for I have been an eye
witness to their loss, year after year, and although
I have done heretofore all in my power to alleviate
their wants, vet I feel that I must not cease in my
efforts to help them to the extent of my means I
shall continue to labor for them whenever the op
portunity presents itself to me I shall urge upon
colleagues to help, and I feel confident in the
justness of the measnre that Congress will not de
lay in passing the bill as soon as it is reached in its
resuiar order. Truly oui &c.
H. B. STRAIT.
Hon. John Rudolph.
New Ulm, Minn.
The Washington correspondent of
the St. Paul JMspatch says that our
member of Congress, Hon. H. B.
Strait, received a parting testimonial
of his efficiency by being chosen as
the republican head of the House
committee to~present a plan for the
entire reorganization of the army.
The Major is in the fine of promo
tion, and if we securethe next House
he will fully blossom out as the chair
man of the military committee, a
very important position, especially
as he would have to baffle the hos
tility of the then democratic Senate
to the army. That committee is now
ready for work with Gen. Burnside
as its chairman. f^gf
The same correspondent also says
that he is afraid that the Major's
pension bill, decreeing that all pen
sions should date from death or dis
charge on account of wounds or dis
ease, failed to become a law. Strait's
activity and zeal with reference to
soldiers meet their reward. His busi
ness at the pension office is second
in volume only to that of Ben. But
