AUGUSTA. TUE8DAY MORNING. DEC. 20. 1870. The election in Georgia commenced yesterday and. continues through to-ihu and to-morrow. Seven Congressmen are to be chosen for the remainder of the pres ent Congress, and the same number lor the Forty-Second Congress. Members ol the State Legislature are also to be elected. This will close the elections of 1870. The Senate Committee on the Judiciary reports that the fourteenth amendment has no effee* whatever upon the status ol the Indian tribes within the limits of the United States. The Indians in their tribal condition have always been treated as nation;, and Congress has always respect ed their right to govern themselves in their own way. The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, which is about to be absorbed by Prussia, lies east of Belgium, north of France, and has Rhenish Prussia south and east. Its area is 1228 square miles, and it has a quarter of a million of population. It gave an Emperor to Germany, in the per son of Henry VII, early in the fifteenth century; was then erected a duchy; tiien joined Burgundy, and soon after incorpo rated with Spain. A portion was ceded to France in 1659, and three-quarters of a century latter Austria acquired the whole. It was wrenched from her and resnnexed to France, in the wars of the Republic and Empire, at the close of the hist century. But when Napoleon fell, it was parted be tween Holland and Belgium. By the revo lution of 1880 Btdginni incorporated her share as a distinct province—about 1700 square miles, with 200,000 inhabitants. In 1867 the Grand Duke agreed to sell it to Louis Napoleon but Prussia objected and the bargain was broken up. Now King William intends to secure it while lie can as one of the conquests of the war. THE WINTER SEASON. The greatest objection which some have to a residence in New England, particular ly this eastern part of it, is to its season of frost and snow. They admire the genial breath of our summers, but are taken with catarrh or reheumatism when they think of the rough winds and icicles of winter, and fall to dreaming of tiiat im aginary land where the skies are always bright with sunshine. Even to read of a New England winter without a hot brick at their feet and something warm at hand to take inwardly, gives them a chill and threatens them with galloping consump tion. How they pity us poor mortals who have to endure the ills they dread ! They take Cowper’s picture of Winter, the “ru ler of tho inverted year,1’ his hair tilled with sleet, his breath congealed upon his lips, cheeks fringed with frosty heard, forehead wrapped in clouds, his sceptre a leafless branch and his throne a sliding car, and this thev believe to be all there is of Winter, notcaring to remember that the artist who drew the picture referred to said of Winter in closing it, “I love thee, >11 unlovely ns thou scein’st, And dreaded as thou art!” We have had for several days past a touch of winter as it is in southern climes. First a day of sunshine, redolent ol violets and roses, followed by leaden clouds, absence of the sun's face, fog, drizzle, shower, rain and snow, lasting a fortnight, with mud half-leg deep, and travel except by rail almost prohibited. Tile pleasant effect upon our people of this taste of winter as they have it in the mild latitudes is witnessed in aggravated and general catarrh, throats that relus< to speak except with pain and in discordant notes, uncon querable neuralgia, all faces in the streets wearing a look as If the world were going to ruin and they cared little how soon, and aloud call for physicians and nurses, with fierce execrations of the weather. Per haps they can endure this sort of thing better in the land of the orange and pome granate, or is it only “distance” that makes it appear so charming to us “down South ?” The South has a reputation for pleasant winters, but they prove a bad article when imported here and subjected to experience and common sense criticism. Now while every body is in love with oar New England summers, and persons come from all quarters to pass the warm months at the seaside resorts from Cape Cod to Mount Desert, they fail to under stand the value of our New England winters. These winters,frozen as they are, give to New Eugiaud physical, mental, moral and social characteristics not found in southern latitudes. Possibly “brown bread, cider, and bean porridge," may aid in giving growth to body and mind, but the rough winds have an exhilarating ef fect, and arouse the energy necessary to overcome with will and strength the rigors of the weather. The very act of resist ance to the sharp attacks of Winter, facing him in his fiercest mood, defying his pres ence out-of-doors, and expelling him from the fireside where the coals sparkle and flowers bloom, fits the character to st nfc gie lor supremacy in other arenas. Health comes on the icy breeze, and character grows in the boy as he slaps his chilled hands or rubs his frosty face and sticks to his coasting or skating let tiie wind blow ever so .high. There is no one who does not know that the intellect is keener in winter than summer. Iu July anfl August the mind works wearily and poorly, drag ging out with the greatest effort what it is obiigedtodo, but iu December and Jan uary the wits need no stimulus and work is a delight. Of the two seasons, summer and winter, the latter docs the most for the character, building it up in mental and awnletraagth, and to this it is doubtless iargelv due that New Englaud stock in men and women commands a premium the country over, except perhaps in those States which have not forgotten or for given the result of their conflict with New England ideas and manhood. In social delights winter is also preeminent. The poet is right when he says: “I crown thee king of intiinnte delight*. Fire-side enjoyment-, homeboni happiness, And all (he comfort* that the lowly ioof Of undistuibed retirement, j ml the h-.urs Of long, uninterrupted evening, know.” As the cold comes on sociability in reases, the latch string is always out, and charity is quickened into greater activity. The pulpit, school ami lyceum do theii best labor in the frostiest days. “Tin light fantastic toe’’ is not neglected, and tile ice which keeps warm hearts apart i> oftener broken about this time, and tin sacred pledge given that links them to gether tor weal or for woe till death do them part. For the winter season of New England let us be thankful and make the mo. t of its blessings. No weak race comes from such a climate. Italy is de generate. The northern nations of Eu rope are the arbiters of the destiny of tin Eastern world. The United States an supreme on this continent, and New Eng land thought and energy wields the force that controls the nation. SENATOR DRAKE'S REPLY TO MR. SCIWRZ. On Friday the Senate resumed the consid eration of the amnesty resolution of Mr. Schurz, and Mr. Drake took the floor to re ply to his colh ague. After alleging that for the introduction of a personal controversy and local political con test into the Senate of the United States his colleague was entirely responsible, he said that his motive in replying was not merely with a view to his personal vindication, hut that of as noble a party as ever held the des tinies of any State of the Union. The ex traordinary and remarkable speech of his colleague was without provocation, lie could not conceive whv the hosts led by his col league, who had their victory when they trailed the republican banner of Missouri in the dust, should not have been content with their triumph upon the soil of that State, but seek to carry it before the nation. Criticising the reference to himself, that, years before, he had acted in the slavery interest of a polit ical candidate in Missouri, he attributed tin motive for the statement to the desire to hold hnu up before the Republican Senate and na tion asun object of condemnation and distrust. Rut supposing he had been a pro-slavery man in 1807, did that constitute the justification of his Collegue’s act, in 1870? Though for ten years penitent, his colleague could not pardon him his sin. Mr. Schurz here desired to interpose for a word of explanation. Mr. Drake declined to give way, remarking that his colleague had over four years of sen atorial life remaining in which to answer him after be had gone hence. Mr. Schurz—I merely want to tell my col league 1 forgive him. [Laughter.] Mr. Drake expressed his appreciation of his colleague's unexpected outburst of clem ency, adding that, in his opinion, it was better to be a new republican uml a faithful one, than an old and treacherous one. [Applause in the galleries, which the Vice Fresident promptly suppressed.] He did not consider that the title to slay the party in cold blood could be derived from longevity within its rank* If it could, then he was thaukful that before he could attain his colleague’s pe riod ot longevity, at which men learned such wick.-d and murderous purposes! he would have gone beyond the reach of those influences into a more healthful sphere of action. He did not wonder that his colleague had at tempted the vindication of himself before his republican colleagues in the Senate, whose hearts were not now touched by his chilling presence. Whether or not his attempt at vindication had succeeded would appear by the verdict of the Senate which would follow at the end of the discussion, llis colleugue, before he was two years warm in his seat, had etiuckat those who sent him to the Senate, 'and had acquired that taste of blood which the possession of power could enable a man to shed in the household of his friends, feel ing perhaps that he did hold the destiny of the great republican party in his hands to do with as he would. He [Schurz] hud come to the Senate to sow seeds of dissension which were to ripen by splitting the party in twain from one end of the land to the other. That purpose his colleague entertained. It would tail here, and his would be the fate ot him of old, who would "Iti'ml thu oax anei inuianoioi me uougn Mr. Drake then eulogized the history o( the radical union party of Missouri during the last ten years; ils instrumentality, with the aid of disirachisement measures , in saving tlie State to the Union; its sagacity in foreseeing the necessity of removing disa bilities when warranted by public safely, the iTedit of which was unfairly usurped by the new liberal movement. To these measures the loyal men of Missouri were indebted for the piotcction which was denied to the loyal element of Kentucky Htid Tennessee. His colleague's victory, therefore, bad been at the expense of the loyal ii.cn of Missouri, to whom he owed his elevation to the highest office lie could ever hope 10 attain under the Constitu tion of the United Stales. His mode of thank mg them was not original. Some better justification than he had y et attempted was necessary, else it would have been better lor him politically bad he never been lorn. The disruption of the republican State convention and the so-called liberal movements were re ferred to by Mr. Drake us features of the Presidential scheme to givu thu Suite to the democrats, the ostensible cause of the con troversy arising from the determination of the majority to make the franehiseinent a part ol the platform, in advance of any ex pression ot popular sentiment lor or against the proposition. The amendment to the Constitution being then before the people for independent action, the minority, led by his colleague, refused to submit to the will of tile majority, and not only seperated from the party but began a war against General Grant's administration, ignoring it in tbeir platform, and his colleague ridiculing us fulsome Mattery the language of the resolution on the subject adopted by the convention. Ills colleague’s attempt to defend Ills course upon the high ground of principle was answered by the tael that be bad made a single point ot policy a pretext for striking a blow at the fundame nt il party principle llmt the w ill of the majority should rule. Independence ot thought and action were well enough in their place, but not as the means of the party destruction. Quoting from the* campaign speeches of the liberal candidate lor governor [Gratz Brown], to show his antipathy to the republican cause, the speaker dismissed the subject with the remark : “He lias gone to the democracy, ami oiay the Lord have mercy on bis soul.” [Laughter.] In answer to the assumption mat the party taithwauple'dgedto enfranchise ment, lie said the general amnesty resolution ot the national republican convention ot lblJti was merely an expression of opinion that dis abilities should be removed upon the happen ing of a contingency— to wit when they were no lunger required by public necessity; that such an expression could only have a national bearing and was of no effect in the regulation of the internal policy of individual republican States like Missouri. Among the probable consequences of Ills colleague's course was tile election of a democrat to succeed him [Drake] and a possible republican defe at in me next presidential elect, in by the loss of the electoral vote of Missouri. In regard to the President's interference in Missouri poll tics, lie [Drake] cheerfully accepted the re sponsibility for his advice to the President in the matter; that he believed no man had a right to a position under a party while warring against it. Upon the question ol'n new party he understood Ins colleague s position tube that while the republican party was dead in trespass and sin, it yet contained tl e element. of the regeneration of a new parly. This re minded him of the county court that wanted to build a new jail and p iss, d three resolu tions,—first, that they would build a new jail: second, that they would build it out of mate rials composing the old one: and third, that the old one should stand until the new ont was built. [Great laughter.] Who was to regenerate the republican party? Possibly that was the purpose ot his colleague's mis sion to America. After a refutation of the charges that he had never spoken disrespect fully of the Germans, Air. Drake added that his colleague, in his recent bolt, had carried with him almost the entire Genian vote ot Missouri, and he believed that his colleague'.* intention was to carry that vote over to tli democracy. 11c also believed that his col league had conceived the more damning thought of becoming a political dictator ol both the republican and democratic parties, through this control of the great German vot. in this country of both parties. This was tin secret of his colleague’s bold self-confidence. In conclusion Mr. Drake took a formal fare well of the Senate preparatory to entering upon bis new office of chief justice of tin court of claims. For years, he said, he had represented on the floor a noble State, and ii was not unfit that his last effort should be addressed to the republicans of that State in this the gloomy hour of their betrayal by those whom they had trusted and honored—a time had proven, too confidingly trusted and honored. He expressed to his colleagues hi Hppreciation of their many evidences ol personal friendship and partiality, and closed with an allusion to the sincerity and fidelity of his efforts in behalf of the political princi ples upon which lie had hern elected to that body. His concluding remarks were de livered with some emotion, and were received by the Senate in profound and respectful silence. APRON SALK, THE I.ADIES' SOCIAL.
