MONDAY, FEBRUARY 1C. lr cecding- sf a ?letinsr of ilie De- n.ocracrof liartUoloinew County I uru.int to a call by the Democratic Central Conniitt.ee, the Democracy of Bartholomew comtjr taetin convention at tlic Court Ilouse on S.it irday ladt, February 7th. Not less thin two thousand persona were present. The Court TOO a was denselj crowded at a Tery early hour, and near a thousand person who came from re mote parta of the count to hear Mr. ilendricka gpeilt, bud to luru awaj id sad disappoititp.Vi.t, tiu.ible to bear a single word. Such a spontane ous outpouring of the people at euch a season of the j ear and iu such inclement weather, canuot be looked upon as a mere empty pageant, it means something more. It is the index of a popular indignation hieb at no distant day will uw violin in the tcrreut of their own corruption thoe men who for self-agrandizemeut sacri ficed on the altar of their hellish ambition and to their cupidity the noblest and best Government on earth, and who endeavored to establish on the ruins of the Republic, which thej conspired to destroy, a military dftspotisni. At the manifest deierm nation of this much injured and undone people, tyrants may well stand aghast and trem ble for tlietr very existence. For, the people dis mayed and mortified at beholding what their in difference and apathy have brought upon them, are now determined, even at l Iiis late day, to rescue themselves and their country from the ruiu and despotism of an-unwise, unpatriotic and fanatical sectional faction. They will call to a strict accountability those recreant men who, being elevated iu an evil hour to re-ponsible po sitions, most wantonly and faithlessly betrayed the people and destroyed the country. This is what these outpourings of the people io mid winter mean. Will the authors of the people's calamity take heed? At 1U o'clock the convention was organized by electing Col. T. G. Lee President, ami B. F. Arnold Secretary. The President, on taking the chair, announced the object of the meeting iu a few appropriate re marks. Hon. T. F. IlorU made an eloquent and -patriotic appeal for peace, the Constitution, and the Union. Mr. Iilane. of Ohio, being next in traduced by the President, addressed the meeting. Mr. Hlane' depicted in true colors that hydra he ided Abolitionism to whose infam us doctrine, as ht. most conclusively pro?ed,our present diffi culties are charge aole. After an adjournment of an hour the conven tion convened at 1 o'clock. The President next introduced IIn. Thomas A. Hendricks, who addressed the meeting in a speech which, for cogency of reasoning and elo quence of diction, has nut been eqnal.-d by that eloquent gentleman and profound statesman. Every word he uttered was listened to with the greatest attention The fidelity of such men to the people and the people's cause, when aban doned by faiihles public servants, renders them Jorever dear to those whose liberties and rights they protected and maintained in the face of the duneeon and the mob. Mr. Hendricks was one of ttvjse few faithful men of ability whom corrup tion could not bribe nor threats intimidate. Faith ful to the people and to his principles he breasted the storm, and to day stands the triumphant ad vocate of the frmlom of speech and of the press. India-ia. certainly the Democracy of Indiana, shouM feel justly proud of such a man. Second to no statesman in the West, it will be the duty of the Democracy of Indiana, in lc61. to urge his claims for the candidacy for President in the Democratic National Convention. This would ' i othinir moie than justice to eminent merit, and requiting unswerving fidelity. Hon. Mr. Abbeit next addressed the conven tion, after which the following resolutions were re id and unanimously adopted: The Democracy of Bartholomew county, in Mass Convention assembled, to give sn expres sion ol their views of the deplorable condition of the country, deem it unnecessary to refer to the causes that led to our present troubles. Upon that subject Democrats every" here agree. Were we to reter to the causes, we would only reiterate the sentiments heretofore expressed at nearly all Democratic meetings; therefore we say nothing of the past, but to the present and future we only refer. And, in giving expression to our views, we claim the right guaranteed by the Constitution, and enjoyed for the past seveuty years, of con demtiing or approving the acts of those in high official position. We are willing to praise where praise i- due, but not afraid to censure. 1. Retnltetl, That the suspeusiou ot the sacred rights of tri I by jury and the writ ot habeas corpus; issue of Uttrr$ de eacftct; the causele-s, illegal and unwarranted arrest and imprisonment of American citizens without presentment, war rant, affidavit, indictment, or other process of law, whose innocence was afterward acknowl edged by their unconditional and honorable re lease; the suppression of liberty of speech and of the press, and the shameless robbery and plun der of peaceful and unoffending citizens upon false and hypocritical charges of disloyalty, are the commission of so many high-handed, uiicol s'.itutioual and infamous outrages, and we brand as true prototypes of tyrants and despots those men iu power who adopted such au infamous policy, and as worthy of slavery those alio sus tain theui in euch a tyrannical system. 2. That the present efforts of'the President and hU advisers, to give a new character aud direc tion to the war, by diverting it into a war for the abolition of slavery, cannot receive our moral support. We denounce it a unconstitutional, tyrannical and unjust, aud, if persisted in, as fatal to the liberties and fortunes of 'he nation. 3. That the abolition proclamation of Abraham L'nc-oln, dated January 1st 16.1, in which he de crees the emancipation vt the slaves in the se ctdeil Sutes, ami consigns the women and chil dren of the South to servile insurrection, ass is si:iaiion, butchery, murder and rapine, liy a bar barous and merciless race, is unconstitutional, inhuman, disgraceful aud contrary to all the usages of civilize-l warl'are, and in justice to our selves as citizens of one of the first nations of civ i lea tion and enlightenment, we demand its im mediale revocation. 4. That the pmoositioD of the Administration to sounder the mentis and substance of the peo ple, iu th mad project of purchasing the slaves of the South, is unconstitutional, and meets our unijuiliSe I condemnation. 5. That our soldiers who were deceived and induced into the army under false representations that 'he war was being waged solely and for the only purpose of maintaining the Constitution and restoring the Union, are entitled to our warmest sympathies, aud that their gallant conduct on every battle field where victory has perched upon the National banner, Jias filled the people of this State with the highest admiration. 6 That in the name of justice, right and bu rn inity, we enter here our solemn protest and register our unrelenting opposition to the passage by Congress of any conscript or drafiius act, where'- the men of our country shall be taken from their quiet homes and the peaceful pur suits of life to fight in a war for the freedom of the negro, while Massachusetts and other New England States, which have been enriching them selves at our expense, and are still clamorous for the prosecution of the war to the last man and the la.-t dollar, have not filled their quota and are not even making an effort to do so. 7. That "this Government was made on the white basis, by white men, for the benefit of white men and their posterity forever; and that the scheme now before Conrea of making soldiers of the negroes is a step toward negro equality tbat Deraocmts cannot approve the fathers of this republic gave theru their proper position 8. That in the present disordered state of our finances, produced in the main by wr.ut of capac ity in the management of the Treasury Depart ment, wanton aud profligate expenditure ot the pubMc iTiones, corruption and wholesale steal ing, such as the world never w.tuesed before we are opposed to auy new scheme for the fur ther inflition of our present circulation, snd that we are in ft vor of a return, at the earliest oppor tunity, to a gold and silver b isis. the constitu tional currency of the country. ' 9 Th it we rely on the ballot box for the cor rection tf present eviis; that we stand by the Constitution and pledge our elvea to the main tenance of the laars under it, and we deprecate anything looking or tending to civil stnle, and welrowu upon and treat with the utmost scorn and contempt the men who are now engaged in makinz thre-.ts ag-iinat our present loyal Demo era tic Legislature, which, if carried into effect, would inevitably lead to a collision in the. pres ent pe ireful and loyal Stale of Indiana. 1). That the pay of the private soldier is most glaringly inadequate to the services per formed, and an increase thereof is called for by quit and justice, to an amount of at least S?j per cent. The same considerations demand a corresponding deduction from the pay of the effi cera. W e most earnestly ask the attention of our me:n'ers of the Legislature to the subject . We w h to see the war honorably terminate., but if it must be continued let justice be done to the soldiers. 11. That we invite 'conservative men every where to co operate with us in an earnest en deavor to bring about a speedy termination of the war, and to this end we will favor an armistice to enable the bclIigereuU to agree npon terms of peace. 12. That we indorse anI hereby approve of the course pursued by the present Democratic Legislature of Ind'ana, and especially the stead fast und unflinching position assumed and main tained by our Senator and Representative, and we pledge them our moral support in the full dis charge ot their legislative duties. 13- That when this convention adjourn it be 'o the 4ih day of March next, at 10 o clock A. M., at which time it will agaiu convene in this Court House, where the funeral oration of the present Republican Coiigres, which lias by iu reckless extravagance and corruption impoverished the na tion with m (insupportable debt, r to be preached by Hon. Joseph E. McDonald, who is hereby in vited to be present on that occasion. 14. That the thanks of this convention be tendered to the President and Vice Presidents for the dignified maniier iu which they" have dis charged their respective duties. 15. That the Indiana State Sentinel, the Co lumbus News, the Cincinnuti Enquirer, the Louisville Democrat and the New Albany Ledger be requested to publish the proceedings of this meeting;. Iteialntianii of the Deiuacracy In D. Kalb County. At a meeting of the Democracy of Jackson township, in DeKalb county, on the 31st of Jan nary 1863, John G. Dancer, Esq., was called lo the Chair and Jacob Mauser was chosen Secre tary. The following preamble and resolutions were unanimously adopted. WhersaS. At the advent of the present Ad ministration the people were assured by the Pres ident and Congress that they had neither the in clination nor the constitutional right to interfere with the local institutions of any Stale, nor with the legal and constitutional rights of the citizens, but that the war should be prosecuted for the ex press purpose of putting do wu the rebellion; and Whereas, The war is no longer prosecuted for its primary and legitimate purpose, but is carried on for the sole purpose of abolishing slavery ,and, thereby unite tUe South, divide the North, and render the establishment of the old Union im possible; therefore, be it Ketolced, 1. That the history of the Republi can party, since its organization, has demonstra ted that its existem e is incompatible with a peace ful union of the States composing the old Union formed by our fathers, so long as that party holds the reins of Government; and as we love and cherish our form of government for the blessings of life, liberty and property which it secures to us, it is cur duty to use every exertion in our power to overthrow that party which is carrying our country headlong into the whirlpool ot de struction for the Utopian theory of raising a de graded lace to equality with the white citizens, or rather of degrading us to the level of the sav kge and brutal negro. 2. That our Chief Magistrate, in calling out our brothers aud sons for the purpose of suppress ing the rebellion and restoring the Union, and then changing the policy of the struggle from its original and glorious purpose to the base design of ovetthroaing the Constitution and stealing negror, and thus forcing our soldiers into an unholy crusade against their consent, is guilty of the basest treachery and treason, aud is lio longer worthy of our support. 3. That the arrest without authority of law and incarceration in loathsome dungeons of peaceable citizens by the present Administration, deserves the condemnation of every American citizen, and can not longer with safety be endured by a free people. 4. That the Administration has broken its faith, violated its repeited pledges, deceived the people, betrayed the army, and almost succeeded in mak ing the restoration of the Union a hopeless im possibility. 5. That we ate committed to the use of every exertion for the restoration of the Union as it was, with the Constitution as it is. but that we will not give one cent or send a single soldier lo the present contest while it is conducted for its present unholy purpose. 6. Tiiat we approve the course of our Repre sentative, Hon. M. Waterman, in oflcritig a reso luliou in the Legislature instructing our Senators and requesting our Representatives in Congress to use every eudeavor to procure the repeal of the act of Congress relative to compensated emanci pation, and to defeat by all reasonable effort any appropriation for such a purpose. 7. Thai our Legislature be requested to adopt the resolutions now pending before it relative to meeting the Kentucky Legislature for the purpose of consulting together on our present national difficulties. 8. That the State Senate be requested, if con sistent with the Constitution and law, to admit to a seat therein William II Dils, now contesting the seat of T. R. Dickinson, and thereby permit the people of this Senatorial district to be repre sented by a Union loving and conservative man, and oust therefrom one who misrepresents this district 9. That for the purpose of consultation on the condition of our distracted country, we would suggest the propriety of holding a mass conven tion of the citizens of this county friendly to the sentiments above, at Auburn, Feb 21, ItGX 10. That the editors of the State Sentinel, Dawson's Fort Wayne Times, and New Era. be furnished a copy of these proceedings, with a re questor their publication, and that a copy besert to our Representative, Hon. M. Waterman. JOHN 0. DANCER, Pres. Jacob Mau-kk, Sec'y. from Washington. Progress or Despotism Absolute Powirto bk Confkrreo ox Ma. LixcoLx Complete Sub VI.R8IOX OF CO.NSTITCTIOXAL GoVfcBXMEXT Tue NtGRO Soldiecs' Bill. f Special Correspondence of the Chicago Times. Washington, February 6. The passage of th, three measures now before Congress the militia bill, the bill giving the President power to suspend the writ ot habeas corpus, and the financial scheme of Mr. Chase will constitute Mr. Lincoln the absolute master of the rights, the liberties, the persons, and the property of the American peo.-le. and w ill make him, in all except the name, an absolute mou arch, a despotic sovereign, an autocrat, whose will will be the only law of the land. He has al ready assumed and exercised powers which, if they had been assumed by Queen Victoria at the same time, would have brought her, ere now, to the scaffold. A slavish and subservient Congress have not only absolved him from all accountabil ity for that great usurpation, but they now pro pose to clothe him, under legislative action, with more than imperial powers; to place his foot upon the neck of a prostrate people; to subvert the whole form of our Government; to sweep away the Constitution as so much worthless rubbish; and to make Abraham Lincoln King of America, and King, too, without any constitutional limita tions or restraints. Have the people of Illinois examined the pro visions of these billsT Dj they comprehend that, when I hey are pass d. the entire form of our Government wiil have been subverted, aud that we shall have returned to a despotism compared with which the rule of George III, was mild and beneficent? It is even so. Let the readers of the Times watch carefully the proceedings in Congresa as these bills aie brought up. They wilt have the pride and satisfaction of seeing them opposed, and their hideous features exposed and held up to the scorn and execration of the world, by their honored Senator, Mr. Richardson; and they will be opposed, too, bv Mi. Voorhees, of Indiana; Mr. Crittenden and Mr. Wickliffe.of Kentucky; Mr. May and Mr. Calvert, of Mary land; Senator Wall, of New Jersey; Mr. Pendle ton. Mr. Cox and Mr. Vallaudig'liam. of Ohio; Mr. Riddle, of Pennsylvania, and no doubt by some others. But there is little doubt of their final dassage. Then farewell, for a few months, to American liberty. These measures once passed, the army , the navy, the Treasury, will be under the abso lute and unlimited control of Abraham Lincoln until next December. He will have absolute power to force into the army every man whom he pleases, and to shut up iu his Bastiles every man a ho incurs his displeasure. Freedom of speech, freedom of the press, the liberty of free locomo tion, will all be taken away. We will see Ilten how sweet it w ill be to hive lost our own übet ties in giving freedom to the blacks. This state of things will continue until the meeting of the new Congress. It may be that foreign complications or the defe it of our arm es mil make it absolutely necessary for the Presi dent to call the new Congress together in extra session. In this case the time of Mr. Lincoln's despotism will be much shoitened ; for, on the day that the new Cotigiess meets, the unjust and i! legt I powers that will have been conferred upon him, will be taken away, and, if lie ia not impeached it will be owing to the long suffering patience of the American people. In enumerating the above measures before Congress, I have not mentioned the negro sol diers' bill, because the latter is more reJiculous than serious. Its passage will, indeed, exas-er-ate the South, but it will have very little practical effect there. Mr. Stevens made th.a) extraordina ry statement in the House of Representatives, that, instead of having a mUlion of men in our armies, we only have SOU ,000, and that, of these, the time of 300,000 will expire next Mt. He brought forward this fact as a reason why the Govern mentought to raise 300,000 negro soldiers. Other reasons were advanced by other members; such as th .1 there was no more white soldiers to be had, ami that the draft had proved to "be a fariure, ke. But this reinwkible statement of one of the great leaders of the Republican party, a man who is known to enjoy the entire confi dence of the President, will give more aid and comfort to the enemy than a victory gained in the Seid. The census of lb'CO shows that there are in all of the free States together only 235,621 blacks; men, women and children. Of these the able bodied men amount to only 30,CX). Say, how ever, that there are 50,000. How many of these can be prevailed on to enlist? It will be found that not one in five, or 10,000 out of the whole lot. They understand very well that they will not be regarded by the Southern troops as sol c'iers, but as slaves fighting against their masters in other words, as slaves in insurrection and that all who are taken prisoners will be hung on the brst tree. Now, the negro is not as brave as the wlite man. Yet how many white soldiers could we have procured for this war if every 0110 ot them knew that death by the cord would be his portion w hen taken prisoner? Brave as our white soldiers are, they are not brave enough to face death in that shape. So far as regards the raising of nego soldiers from the ranks of runaway slaves, the attempt will be a greater failure still. If a regiment of fugitive slaves should be raised, the enemy would not fight them with guns and swords. A dozen ferocious-looking Yankee overseers, with their lontr whips, would so frighten the platoons of CuR'ees, Samboes and Jobnsings, that they would drop their guns in an agony of terror, and seek safety in Might. The attempt to raise the negro race to an equality with the white soldiers will fail, because it is au attempt to subvert the fun damental laws of a wise Providence. Those laws have assigned to the negro a particular sphere, and out of that sphere the negro cannot exist. In spite of its ridiculous features, there is a se rious side also to the uegro soldier business. Let but 10,000 negro soldiers be raised, and our army is eone. Our soldiers will not endure the degra dation of fighting side by side with blacks. From our cradles we are told that nature, and human aud divine laws, have decreed the eternal separa tion of the two race, except in the rotation of master and slave. Black children are not al lowed to attend the same schools as white child ren Negroes are not allowed to settle or to come into our State, and in many other Suites the same laws exit. White men will not permit negroes to set down at the same table with them, ami with go-d reason. It is felt to be degrading to be competed to associate, iu any maimer, w ith negroes. Now. at one step, all these barriers are to be overleaped, and negroes are at once to be placed on the same level, to be on a perfect equality, with our brothers, our fathers and our sons, who have been for months fighting the bat ties of the country, ruman nature will not stand such degradation as this. Our troops will not fight with negroes. There is another poiut worthy of notice. The border States have remained iu the Union up to this time, because their citizens love the Union, and hate clung to the hope that Congress would have some respect for their feelings aud their interests. This hope has been growing weaker eery day, and it is now entirely extinct. 1 he debate in Congress on this bill has shown that it is regarded with puch detestation in Kentucky that its passage will lose that State and Tenues see to the Union. This bill passed, the people of those two Slates will be compelled, in self-defense, to join the Southern Confederacy. If that great misfortune should take place, it will bring the war d'tectly into Illinois. My forebodings in regard to Gen. Franklin have proved to be correct. He did not nsk to be relieved from his command, but was ordered here to be tried by court martial. His offense is that he is a friend to Gen. McClell an.aud that he w ill not crawl in the dust before the hand that smote down his chief. X. (evolution Inaugurated 'I' lie Aboli tion .Minority llreuk up the Legis latiirr. On Saturday the legislative revolutionists brought things to a head. A sufficient number ot Abolitcn Senators absented themselves from that body to prevent a quorum, hence no business was done during the day. In the House the Senate Abolition programme of the day before was attempted to be carried out, and with like success. On a motion to take up the Senate res olution adjourning the Legislature until June, nearly all the Abolition members lefl their seats. A "call" was ordered, and a sufiicieut number to make a quorum were brought in, and the doors ordered to be closed against their egress from the House. The galleries and lobby were filled with people looking upon the extraordinary scene. When it was found that a quorum would be held in the hall, action wus sought tobe delayed by numerous parliamentary tricks, talking against time, Ac, but these availed nothing. The ma jority held the House to its work, and adopted the Senate resolution 45 voting for it aud 7 against it. while seven or eiht Abolition ineui beis peremptorily refused to vote at all, though they were not excused from voting. The names of these were called, to show the presence of a quorum by the record, when the resolution was declared by the presiding officer adopted, and on Saturday next the House will stand adjourned until the 2d of June. A week only now remains for the completion of the legislative business, among which are the apportionment bills, and the measures necessary for the support of the State Government. At the present writing we have reason to believe that the Abolition minority willleave each house without a quorum, un!es their demands are complied with unless the majority accede to such action j as the minority may dictate ! The Springfield correspondent of the St. Louis Democrat, one of Governor Yates' " aids," tele graphed to that paper on Friday night as follows; The Republican members held a caucus to n;ght and rgreed there should be no more legis lation unless the Democrats withdraw the reso luiions calling a convention at Louisville, aud pledge themselves not to again piesent them The Republican Senators have already left the city.' and will tiot return until the pledge is given, so that the Legislature is virtually dissolved." . The writer knows whereof he writes. He speaks by the card, and only states what is generally avowed bv the minority members This bravado, this outrageous attempt of a factious minority, will fail of its mark. The res olutions will not be withdraw n. If the Aoliiion fiction are resolved to persist in their revolu tionary conduct, the obnoxious resolutions can and will be passed bv the Democratic members, either by the legitimate mode, or in a mannet which will be at least as effective before the country, as an expression of Illinois ooputar opin ion. If the issue was the enactment of a law, the Abolition tactics might be successful, but for all the practical purposes of uttering to the coun try the opinion and desires of the representatives ol the majority of the people of Illinois, the re bellious minority cannot prevent it. A state ment of the facts ot the case, accompanying the resolutions when adopted, instead of damaging the mural force of Democratic action in the As sembly, will only luruish further proof of the un scrupulous, unworthy character of the party lead ers w ho support the policy of the National Ad ministration,-and which policy is, undeniably, condemned by the great body of the people of this State. Such being the facts we are indisposed to en tertain the opinion that thee resolutions are the real cause of the di.-graceful conduct of the Abolition members Except that the Commis (doners named would not hold their positions by positive legal appointment, as an expiessioti of opinion from the Legislature, the resolutions will h tve all the necessary force belore the country. So all sensib'e men will view the subject. Under the lead mid direction of ov. Yates, the minor ity would defeat the proposed laws in regard to the habeas corpus, illegal arrests, the cutting off of the swarm of useless aud expensive corps of "aids" about the Executive, the stopping or nu merous leaks aud the making more secure the funds of the State in charge of her officials They would hive further heavy contingent appropria tions and continue, for Gov. Yates's partisan pur poses, a large and usele s military machinery. They would continue their congressional and legislative geirymanderings. They would stop all investigation of past extravagance and pecu lation, and continue them for party and personal advantage. All that the people called for in the way of amendment and reform they would defeat by their revolutionary anion. In what do these men differ from Jeff. Davis and his congressional associate, when they with drew from Congtess, because of their opposition to the majority's will, shown by votes of the peo ple at the polls? Of what avail are our elections to wh it end do we have Constitution and law of what use is a General Assembly, if the mi nority can, with impunity, break it up, as is now proposed? Inordinary rimes such factious con duct could be viewed with omo little leniency, as the reckless act of men Minded by partisan passion; but in the present inflamed state of the public mind, with a civil war raging upon our borders, and the country In death-struggles for national existence, it is little short of treason. It is initiating at our door, and by precise! T similar initiatory steps, just such a rebellion as hundreds of thousands of patriotic lives and millions of the people! treasure hate been poured out to aid in suppressing. These men, by their shameless conduct, proclaim our State Constitution a nul ily. and as having no binding force. They would subvert the law making branch of the Govern ment. 1 hey proclaim that tV will of the minority, and not of'the majoritv, shall govern in Illinois. They exhibit a spirit of lawlessness which, com ing from those deputed to make laws, is a thou sand fold more culpable, more execrable, than if shown by citizens in private station. By their bullying, lawless conduct, these men cannot coerce the Democratic majority intoac quiescence in their demands. If they could do so, the latter would be as shamelessly recreant to their trusts as are those who thus threaten them. They have determined to stand by their thu9 far patriotic course. In this they will have the sup port and indorsement of the people, w ho wouid receive them with pcoi u and indignation, on their return to their homes, were they to falter in the performance of the duty they know is devolved upon them by the people. But they have re solved that they will not be thus recreant. If the State and people phall sustain damage, by Abo lition lawlessness; if the necessary appropriations are not made; if the unfortunates in our several State institutions are punished by legislative non action, and a dangerous public spirit is aroued in peaceful Illinois, an the heads of the Abolition recusants be the crime and the penalty. They subvert their State Government by bidding "chaos come again." The Democracy in the Legnlature know their duty. They know what is expected of them by their constituencies. They understood the mean ingof the election revolution in November, and we feel assured that they will contribute nothing to turn it b ackward, disappointing the hopes and thwarting tie will of the people. He who coun sels or aids it, makes his political winding sheet, and merits the contempt and scorn of every pa triot in Illinois of every man who desires to see our Slate and common country brought back to their wonted condition of peace, prosperity and patriotic brotherhood Spriugfield (ill ) Register. 1 OX It K. I ON A L.. Wa6hixutox, February 9. Sexate. Mr. Sherman presented the creden tials of Hon. 13. F. Wade, re elected Senator from Ohio. Mr. Harris presented the resolutions of the New York As.-embly iu favor of a reduction of the duty on printing paper; also, resolutions in favor of a bankrupt act. Mr. Wilson, from the Military Committee, re ported the enrolling and calling on the national forces Mr. Wade offered a resolution requesting the Secretary of the Treasury to communicate to the Senate the amount of Government cotton sold iu New York since the blockade of the Southern ports; the amount of commission, storage, and the names of all persons interested in such sales. Adopted. Mr. Sumner introduced a bill to raise addi tioi.al soldiers for the service of the United States. Mr. Grimes offered a resolution requesting the President to communicate to the Senate, if not imcompatible w ith the public interests, the char acter of the suL'estioii made by the Secretary of Stat,e of the United Slates to M. Mercier, the representative of the French Government, as elated by him to M. Thouven al, which induced M. Mercier to undertake a mission to Richmond, and what representations hd was auihorized to make from the Government from the Secretary of State to the Rebel authorities. Adopted. Mr. Latham offered a resolution, which was adopted, instructing the Committee on Post Offices und Roads to inquire into the necessity of granting a transit right for stations to the Over land Mail Company. Hoist Mr. Dawes, from the Committee on Elections, reported against the credentials of John B. Rogers, from Tennessee, and Lewis McKenzie, from the 7th District of Virginia. The House went into consideration of the ship canal bill. Mr. Babbitt thought the present no time for entering upon so extensive a work, which was mainly of a commercial character. Mr. Moichead read a letter from Admiral Foote. showing that there was not sufficient water at the mouth ot the O.iio to take up gunboats to the lakes. Commander Davis coincided in that opinion. All practical men looked upou the project as preposterous. The House voted on Stevens' amendment, viz: Before the United States proceeds to make any expenditure, the State of New York shall make conveyance and grant of the jurisdiction lo the United States in the same manner as provided tor in regard to the State of Illinois, and all the provisions relative to the reimbursement of sums expended by the United Suites in Illinois, shall apply to New York, so as to make her a similar reimbursement for sums expended on New York canals. Tie amendment was rejected by one majority. The Hou?e then by a vote of 91 against 57 agreed to Stevens's substitute for the bill, pro viding that if New York shall, w ithin two vears from the passage ol" the act, so construct and en large her canals as to pass a vessel two hundred feet in length, twenty five feet in width, and of six feet and six inches draft, from the Hudson river to Likes Erie and Ontario, and shall grant to the United States Government the right of passage through these canals of vessels ol war, boats, gunboats, transput is, troops, supplies, and munitions of war free of tolls or charge, the Treasurer of the United States shall deliver to New York United States bonds of the denomina tion of $1.001 e tch, bearing 6 per cent, interest, redeemable in not less than twenty years, with semi vearlv coupon bonds attached, lor the sum of $3,500,000.

Mr. Wilson, from the Military Committee, re ported a bill to authorize an increase of Major and Brigadier Generals in the volunteer service. Mr. Sumner presented a petition from coloied citizens of New Jersey protesting against any appropriation forcoloniz ition. Mr. Foster offered a resolution, which p-ied, req'ie.-ting the President, if not incompatible, to lay before the Senate any correspondence which has taken place between this Government mid France oti the subject of mediation, arbitratin, or oilier me.surcs looking to the termination of the w ir. Ttie National Currency bill was then taken up. Mr Sherman s tid t'.ie me isure w is proposed at the last session, but met with but little attention. Since then it hid received the most careful con sideration from persons in all portions of the country, and especially from committees of the House and Senate. We were now iu a condition wheb something must be dune to sustain the finance of the country. We wrro in the midst of war, and j.-o!d was at suh a high premium it was n itnr ill driven out of circulation. Mr. !ierni an continued at length. He said Congress at the I ist tes.-in, finding the Govern ment without mi.ney, authorized the issue of Government notes, but there were gieal objec tions ti continued and ini.icised issue of this par money. Oo re .son was on account of the fa cility for it-, excessive expansion. He said he thought he could irove that in time of war these local banks with their proper issue were inimical to the country. A privilege to issue this money in times of suspension of specie payments is the same as a privilege to coin money a privilege which in time of war especially should only be exercised by the State itself, and not by any pri vate corporation. The great danger from tnis fiaper currency is from an over issue. All history las shown thi-. This country will bear the issue of about four hnndie l million dollars in paper money und no more This plan of national cur rency will be safer, farsafer, than auy other paper money. Ii will have the credit of the United States, a deposite of one fourth of the circula tian, and the liability of the stockholders These bills will be convertible at anytime into lawful money of the United States, and the currency will be uniform over the country , so that a bill issued in Maine will be .taken in California. Banks will be organized all over the country, and a demand w ill be made for the bonds of the Gov crnnient, and a great market created for them. This tyiem w ill furnish a convenient uo-e for the collection of laxes ail over the country, these notes beiiiif receivable for ttxes eery where. He believed this system would be lenehcial to the banks. It would tend greatlv to prevent counter feiting now so prevalent. The notes ot 1,'JOO banks have been counterfeited or altered; over 3,000 have been altered. There are 1,700 spuri ous kinds of notes, and 4G0 varieties of imita tions. The number of banks in 18(i2 was esti mated at 1,500, and the notes of all weie counter feited except ;233. The alterations were 3,0:19 aud the spurious bills 1 ,6S5 Tins system would tend to prevent all this. The bankers would have the teiicfit of being depositories of the Government. This will also tend to promote nationality by nationalizing the currency of the country. lie wished, above all things, to establish a sound financial system as a permanent roeat.s of preserving our nationality; and one great means of preserving our national life is the establish ment of a sound financial system. Mr. Fcsendeii, by consent from the Commit tee on Finance, reported back the bill to prevent and punish frauds on the revenue, with amend ments. He also introduced a bill to allow the United States to psecute appeals of writs of er-! ror without giving security. The Senate then resumed the consideration of the currency bill, the question being on Powell's a mend in .".it requiring the banks to keep specie iu their vaults to the amou-1 of one quarter of their circulation. This was rejected yeas 14, nays 22. Mr. Powell moved to strike out the provision excluding these notes from being received in pay ment of imports. Rejected. Mr. Howard moved to amend so as to require that thirty per cent, of the capital 6tock shall be paid in pold and silver coin. This was rejected. Yeaya 13; naya 91. Mi Powell 0.1'ered an amendment requiring the absent of the State to the organization of the banks. Rejected. Mr. Hndersou offered an amendment iucrens ing the amount of the capital stock of these banks. Rejected. Adjourned. Hoise On motion of Mf. Arnold, the Com mittee of Ways aud Means was instructed to ex amine and teport on the practical operations of the excise law upon the interests of manufacturers of limited means. The House resumed the consideration of the report of the Committee on Elections, in favor of admitting Messrs. Flanders and Hahn as Repre sentatives from Louis-ana. No question was taken. Washixgtof, Feb. 11. Senate Mr. Grimes, from the Committee on Naval Affairs, reported a resolution lo compen sate sailoi s of the guuboat for loss of cloth ing. Passed. Mr. Ten Eyck, from the Committee on Judi ciary, I reported adversely on the bil to amend the fugitive slave act. Mr. Trumbull, from the same committee, re ported back the bill to allow the United States to prosecute appeals and writs of error without giv ing security. Passed. Mr. Wilkinson called up the bill for the re moval of the Wincbago Indians from Minnesota. Passed . Mr. Wilson, of Massachusetts, called up the bill to increase the number of Major and Briga dier Generals in tha Volunteer service. It pro vides for n increase of 30 Major Generals and 150 Brigadier Generals, making the whole num bcrof Major Generals 70, and of Brigadier Gen eral 270. Mr. Grimes was opposed to the bill, and asked for the yeas and nays on its passage. Mr. Carlile wanted to know how many of these Generals were on duty. He thought this increase would add greatly to the expenses of the Gov ernment. Mr. Wilson said many gentlemeti had been ap poiuted when the new forces were raised. He did not believe that so manv were needed, and he thought that some limit had better be placed on the number, or else nominations of new Generals w ould be sent to the Senate every day. Mr Grimes said there were more objections to the quality of the Generals than lo the quantity. Many of our Generals ought to be removed aud better men put in their plates. At the expiration of the morning hour the Chair called up the special order, the bill to aid the State of Missouri iu emancipation, but the unfinished business of vesterday, the currency bill, bein:; first in order, was taken up and the amendment offered bv Mr. Harris adopted. It provides that a bank or banking association shall be a holder of U. S. bonds to the amount of 50 per cent, of its capital stock, it may transfer or deliver to the U. o. I rcisurv such bonds, or part thereof, in the manner provided by this act, and will be entitled to receive circulating uots equal to b'O per cent, of the bun Is so transferred and delivered. Hot Mr. Washburne gave notice of his intention to introduce a bill to repeal all laws levying: duties on railroad iron. Mr. Cox, from the Committee on Foreign Af fairs, made a report on Mr. Fessendea's resolu tion as to whether Gen. should not be dis missed as Minister from Columbia. Mr. Cox caused a note to be read from Secre tary Seward saving thai ihe President was en- I- trusted with the function of receuing foreign Ministers, and this was confided to him by the Constitution. Mr. Cox remarked that the Legislature had nothing to do with subject of receiving foreign ministers. He had no doubt ihe Government was taking the proper steps for recognizing the Government ot M , as all the functions ot the State, the forts, capital, &c, were now in the h inds of the latter, and he was now President de facto and de jnne. Mr. Fessenden expressed his dissati?faction with the report. His object was accomplished. He was glad to hear that measures were being taken to reorganize that Ooverument.- The committee was discharged from the fur ther consideration of the sul ject. I.eglMlativc Nummary. Tt JSDAT, Feb. 10, lfcP3. Senate. The Committee on Federal Rela tions reported back Mr. Cobb's joint resolution against the employment of negro soldiers in the service of the Unite !

After prolonged debate Mr C.ison's reso lution was adopted, and Monday next, al 2 P. M , fixed lor the report. Ihe Speaker announced ihe committee, composed of gentlemen on both rides of the question. Bids up to No. 124 were introduced. No other business of importance was transacted, and the majority seem disposed to hold the minority, who are continually intro ducing humbug resolutions and prolonging; use less discussion, to a riiiid accountability. This is right. Let the work of the people be done. I be majority are reaoy. WtDXEspAY, February 11, 1SG3. Sexatk.

S. S. Cox during his speech before the Democratic Union Associa tion of ew x ork city, on the Uth ult.: CaltOLOA. She has one she hat left us In passion and pride Oar stormy-brow cd sister, so long at our side I Sbe baa turn her own Mar from our firmament's glow. And turned 011 her brother the face of a foe I O, Caroline, Caroline, child of the tuo. We cau never forirel that our hearts have been one; Our forrhead both Fprinkled in Liier'y'a name, Vroni the fountain of blood with the tinker of flame! Tou were always too ready to fire at a touch; But we said "She Is hasty she does not mean much." We have rciwled when ou altered ome turbaicnt threat; But Irk-ndsliip still whispered "forgive and forget." Has our love all died out? Have It altars grown cold? Has the curse come at I ot which the fathers foretold! Then Nature must teach us the trenitth of the chain lhat her peiulent children would sever la vain. Thry may light till the buzzards are gorged with their fp(.l, Till the hnrreitt grow s black as it rots In the soil. Till t tie wolves and the catamounts troop from their cave, And Ihe park tracks the pirate, tbe lord of the waves. In vain U the strife! When its fury is past. Their fortunes must flow in one chair etat last. As the torrents that ruf h from tbe mountains of snow Koll mingled in peace through the valley below. Our Union is river, lake, ocean and fky; Man breaks tint the mnlal w hen God cut the die I Though darkened with sulphur, though cloven with iteet. The blue arch will brighten, the waters will heal. O, Caroline, Caroline, child of the sun. There arc bailies with fate that can never be won I Tbe star-flowrritig banner must never be furled. For IU blossoms of light are the hope of the world I Go, then, our rash ister t afar and aloof, Kan wild in the sanrhine away from our roof; but when your heart ache and your feet have grown sore. Remember Ih ptbwy that leads to onr doorl Iteport ! the Bank Committee. The majority of the Committee on Dauks, to whom was relerred the memorial of D It.

Bui k ham now is, and has been for the most of the time since the or ganization of the sa mef the President of the Law renceburg Branch of the Bank of the State of Indiana, and for at least the last eighteen months said Burkhara ha nut been a citizen of the State of Indiana, which is in direct violation ot tbe 66th section of the Chatter. 2. That it further appear lhat the capital stock of said branch is $M0,00(), of which the said Durkh.im owns $133,51)0, and hi two sous own $19.1)50. making io all $153,450; that by the amount of tttock he o, he is enabled to, aud does, elect and control the Directory of said branch. 3. That the sa;d . O. Burkham, and sons, have had, until very recently, a banking house in the city of Chicago. Illinois, and E U.

It also appears from the evidence that up to Jauuatv, lbGl, Slid branch tn.tde tegular semi annual dividends of 5 per cent., but made no dividend in July, lbtil, and only a semi-annual dividend of 3 per ccLt. in July, ltG2, and Janu ary. 1&G3. 5. The said monthly re;orts also sliow that the discounts of said branch, on notes and hüls of ex ciniiifje, have been very small for the past year, ami on the 31st of January, lt-tj-l, were onlv $14,4119 76, w hilst the notes of s u l branch in circulation were $'iü7,'J47 0U, thus showing that the b.mk no districts which said branch was ere nted by the charter to substrve, has derived no benefit therefrom, and that 'he assets of the said br.tnch h.ive been diverted from their legitimate held and carried to Ohio and Illinois, aud there ned to answer the private emolument of its President, L G. Berkh tm. Tin-, w e reixrd as a violation of the spirit, if uot the letter, of the chatter. " G. We find that ihe memorialist, who is a stockholder in said branch to the amount of tlO.IHMI. b is applied to the l;rd of Directors of tue Dank of the St ite of Indiana for redress, and has been answered by said Board thai they had no power to "rant him any relief. The majority think it ihe dutv of this General Asse ubl v, in pursuance of the 2-ld section of the charter ol the uank ol ttie btate. to appoint an aijeiii t ex imine into the condition of s aid Batik, and particularly the Lawreticeburj Brauch thereof, who shall report to the General Assembly at its present session, that said Assembly m iy take such ni.-tion as may be expedient and proper. They therefore respectfully recommend the adop tion of the accompanying Joint Resolution. IIlnrt K. Wil-ox, Chairman. To steady Writers. A nuniber of persons wielding ihe pens of ready and flexible writers, will find constant em ployment at the Journal ol3'"e. to write cora- municatious for that paper, purporting to be dated at the different point- where there are en camnments of Indiana soldiers. The writers will have to eulogize the patriotic and unselfish benevolence of Governor MoRTOxin acting, (free of charge?) as the almoner of the Suite bounty toward our soldiers in the Held; they must main tain the supremacy ot President Lincoln and his proclamation policy over the Constitution and laws ; denounce as disloyal the Democrats of Indiana, and their representatives in the General Assembly, and threaten them with extermination when the soldiers return home, unless they al once ground the arms of their rebellion against the higher law and irrepressible conflict doctrines ol the Ciiictgo plat form, and the one mm power ot ita chief aent and executor. The letter of General R. H. Milroy, in gratitude for his re rent promotion to the exalted position of" M-ijor General," in yesterday's Jownul, is to be takcu as a specimen of the sort of lexers which will be most acceptable ns meeting the wants and re quirements of the occasion. i he writers must srenlily keep iu view the main object, i. e., to scare the rejire-eiiiaiives of the Democracy from curving out the will of their constituents lor (ear of the impending vengeance of the military, led by their chieftains," when they shall have got through the job of whipping the South into a be lief in the saving race wf abolition and equal izing the w hite and black races.
