Tuesday, January 13, 1863. J
Petitions were presented by Messrs. Miller, i
Shields, Rusk, Soulk, and Stockton. t
Mr. STOCKTON gave notice of a bill he j
' should introduce providing for a line of steamships
between Jersey city and Galway. i
" Mr. BRADBURY introduced a joint resolution
I authorizing a compendium to be prepared of the
President's message, and theaccompanying docu- ,
! men is. i
Mr. BADGER hoped the resolution would be
referred, because, as he apprehended, it would |
prevent the printing of the documents at large.*
Mr. BR\DBURY replied that this was not the
case. Ordered to a second reading.
After some otl er unimportant business, j
Mr. HUNTER moved to take up the bill pro- j
viding for the assignability of bounty laud warrants.
He thought it was one oCm^te most irn- !
portant bills of the session, and oi^t to be acted 1
upon without delay. ,
Mr. SEBASTIAN suggested that important I
amendments would be added to this bill, and if |
the Senator thought it could be passed without |
debate, he was mistaken. He believed there |
might be a lengthened discussion on the subject.
Mr. HUNTER withdrew his motion, and the '
bill, at his instance, was made the special order for ,
Monday next.
census printing.
On motion, the joint resolution was resumed
from yesterday, authorizing the joint Committee
on Printingjto contract with Messrs. Donelson &
Armstrong, for the printing of the statistics of the
census of 1850.
WlrA BRIGHT advocated the resolution in reply
to the arguments of Mr. Smith yesterday in opposition.
He said that his main object was not to
I give a dish of public patronage to a patinan press.
He had no such object in view. The object of the
resolution was to have the work done well'and
promptly, which could not be done under the contract
system. He spoke of the importance of the
work; there had never been any thing in the form
of a public document approaching it in the value
and variety of its matter. It would be a correct
statistical history of the United States. It would
be more nighly appreciated by the people than
any document ever isaued by Congress, nor would
its cost be very alarming. It would make two
volumes, perhaps, the size of the American
Archives, and the cost would be about six dollars
a volume, or twelve dollars the set. Allowing
one copy to each State and each county in the
Union, to each university or college, to each
marshal engaged in collecting the census, to all
our representatives abroad, and to foreign nations,
and to members of the present Congress, and to
1 the last Congress, it would require about 3,500
copies, and to allow a reasonable number for distribution
by both Houses, would probably make
an aggregate not exceeding 25,000 copies, which,
at twelve dollars each, would only amount to
$.'100,000. And this work included not only the
usual census statistics but also a condensed history
of every State, and of every particular county
in the Union.
With regard to the contracts here proposed,
there were precedents to justify it in repeated instances.
The object was to have good work, to
have it promptly done, and on reasonable terms,
all of which was provided for in the resolution.
As for the amendment of the Senator from Connecticut,
he considered it entirely out of the question.
Mr. SMITH'S amendment is substantially as
To turn over this work of the census, to the supervision
of the Secretary of the Interior?to contract
with the lowest bidder for the printing?to
fnr the naner. and also for the
binding, and in each cafe to have ample securities,
for the faithful execution of the contract.
Mr SMITH spoke for some time in opposition
to the resolution, and in favor of his amendment,
as the plan calculated to secure a fair, cheap and
satisfactory execution of the printing.
Mr. HALE contended that the new party organ
established here, ought not to be forgotten. An
ignorant person in going into a church and seeing
the man handling the keys of the organ, would be
very apt to think that he produced the music.
But there is a little boy thai stands behind, and
blows the bellows, and nils the pipes with wind,
and you can't raise the music till you raise the
wind. It is so with the political orvnn at Washington?we
must raise the wind, or it will cease to
> grind out its mui-.ic. And he contended, in a hujiiuiuuo|.
<! > ? wm rlpl.i propsr, that
the party having the majority, according to custom,
should have the benefit of the public treasury
as far as possible.
Mr. l)AWSON argued against the resolution,
on the ground that it cut ofT all fair competition
?indeed all competition for this work.
The debate was further prolongfd by Messrs.
Borland, Bright, Davis, Cooper, Hamlin Rnd
Pierce, when
Mr. BUTLER briefly expressed his opposition
to this historical branch of the census. It was
extra-constitutional, as were also a large proportion
of the statistics, intended to satisfy the curious
rather than to subserve the express requirement
of the Constitution, which was limited to
an enumeration of tha population of the United
Mr. ATCHISON moved to lay the whole subject
on the table, but withdrew it at the request of
1) .r . .?H ?ft.r mnm r.m.rlr. L Mr
*ui . i?n?i/?v?. i ? -7
Rrak?cmt and Mr. Bright, concurring in a suggeation
to postpone.
On motion of Mr. PIERCE the whole subject
was postponed to this day three weeks, with the
view of obtaining in the interval a sample of the
work as proposed to be compiled by the censcs
bonrd from which to form a judgment of the aggregate
And the Senate adjourned.

A Few Suggestions, Suggested by the
State of Things in Fkane.?Suppose the
lead of the executive, or the minister for the
litne being, were to take into his head one morning
to abolish the Houses of Parliament:
Suppose some of the members elected by
large constituencies, were to think it a duty to
go and take their seals, and were to be met at
the doors by swords and bayonets, und were
to be wounded and taken oil' to prison for the
attempt: _ .
Suppose the minister, having been harrnssed
by a few Parliamentary debates and discussions,
were to send ofl' to Newgate or the house of
correction, a few of the most eminent members
of the opposition, such as the D'Israelia, the
Grahams, the Gladstones, the Birings, and a
sprinkling of the Humes, the Wnkeleys, the
VValrnsleys, the Cobdens, and the Hrights:
Suppose the press having been found not to
agree with the policy of the minister, he were
to peremptorily stop the^ publication of the
Times,Herald, Chromc'e, Post, Advertiser, Unity
News, Globe, &c, &c., and limit the organs of
intelligence to the government Gazette, or one
or two other f riots that would write or omit
just what he, the minister, might please:
Suppose, when it occurred to the public that
these measures were not exactly in conformity
with the law, the minister were to go or send
some soldiers down to Westminster Hull, shut
up the Courts, send the Lord Chancellor about
his business, and tell Lords Campbell, Cranworth,
and all the rest of the high judicial authorities,
to make the bei?t of their way home:
Suppose a few members of Parliament were
to sign a protest against these Vocet*ding8?
and suppose the documents Were to be torn
down by soldiers, and the persons signing them
packed off to Coldbath fields or Pentonville:
Suppose all these things were to happen with
a Parliament elected by universal suffrage, and
under a republican form of government:
And lastly?
Suppose we were to be told that this sort ef
thing is liberty, and what we ought to endeavor
to get for our own country;?should we look
upon the person telling us so, as a madman, or
a knave, or both ? and should we not be justified
in putting him speedily and as unceremoniously
as possible?outside our doors??Punch.
The Bonai'autes.?Louis Napoleon may be
said to be, in one sense, the legal successor of
the Emi'EROK Naeoleon. His election, at this
time, is doubtless intended by him to be the restoration
of the Empire under the Bonaparte dy
nasty. By the decree, or Senatus-consultum,
which constituted Napoleon Emperor in 1801,
the imperial succession was thus prescribed:
1st. To'the lineal heirs, male, of Napoleon;
in the order of promigeniture.
2d. Failing these, to such son or grandson of
his brothers, as Napoleon might desginate, and
the heirs male of such son or grandson.
3d. To Joseph Bonapaite and his heirs male.
4th. Fuiling these, to Louis Bonaparte, his
heirs male, each in the order of promigeniture.
The only son of Napoleon, the Duke of
Reichstadt, died in 1832. Joseph, Ex-King of
8puin, the eldest brother of Napoleon, known |
as Count de Surviliiers, and who resided for
uiany years in New Jersey, died in 1845, leaving
two daughters, but no son. Louis, Ex-King of
Holland, the father of the pr sent Louis Nnpo*
leon, died in 1846, shortly after the escape of
tbc son from the fortress of Ham. Two elder
sons of Louis and llortense died, one in infancy,
the other at the age of 27, leaving Louis Napoleon
the only survivor, and the last in the prescribed
To this claim of ifuasi legitimacy it is probablo
Louis Napoleon alludes in his proclamation
to the people of France:
- If you bcliotfe in the cause of which my
name is the symbol, that is, France regenerated
by the revolution of '89, and organized by the
Emperor, proclaim it," &c.
Jerome, the yoan^eit brother of Napoleon,
sometime King of Westphalia, lias addressed a
letter to his nephew," in the name of the memory
of my brother, and partaking his horror of
civil war," urging a republican and conciliatory
policy. Napoleon, a son of Jerome, is or was
a member of the French general assembly.
Lucien Bonaparte, Prince of C&nino, died at
Rome, leaving a numerous family; one of them
the ornithologist, now or lately, prominent in
the affairs of Rome and Italy. Pierre, another
son, figured in tho French national assembly;
as alao Murat, a son of the Marshal and Caroline,
the sister of N ipoleon. One of the daughters

Professor John C. F. Salomon, after twenty-six
ears of close observation upon the experiments
f hie own and of others in attempts to make the
rincinle of the condensation of carbonic acid gas
suitable as a mechanic motor, has perfected the

The immense savipg of money ar.d labor, and

; The adoption of Congress has given the Globe 11
, an official character as the reporter of all that is ?
. said and done in the body. This sanction has *
t been voted at every successive session for many
years, and by members of all parties. The press,
> too, of all parties has borne testimony to the fidel#
ity with which the duty thus confided has been
performed. The annexed notices, taken at random
from the general expression in favor of the
work, are submitted in proof of its fullness, fair.
ness, and usefulness. I am compelled to omit,
. for want of room, a page of notices which are in
[ ^The great celerity with which the letter-writers
) for the distant press circulate through the tele- graph
their hurried accounts and views of the
f debates of Congress, renders more important than
? ever the full and exact official reports of the Conqreiiional
Globe. The hasty, and in many ?
> instances ex parte, relations by telegraph of what I
r occurs in Congress supersede, for the most part, '1
the exact reoorts taken down bv reoorters, and
wnich formerly, in a shape more or less abbre- f
. viated, went the rounds of the press. Now the i
telegraph accounts, with all tneir imperfections
and variety of colorings, take the run of the coun- i
try, and no press but the official of Congress ever I
publishes the full debate with the proceedings of f
r both Housesunmutilated. Indeed, no newspaper
. can give them, and have room for advertisements
j and the miscellaneous matter essential to their ex,
istence. While, therefore, the telegraph adminis- <
I ters to the eager appetite of the public for Congress
I news, and meets the necessities of the political
, press, by famishing a rapidly-written epitome
. suited to the taste of its patrons, perfect informa[
tion of what passes in Congress is greatly dimin- 1
ished. The circulation of the official reports has I
been, to some extent, cut off by the crude and 1
. diversified accounts which, flying along the electric
I wires, satisfies curiosity, and it is almost in vain t
, that truth puts on his boots to follow. S$ll there t
j are a great many men of leisure and thought who 1
like to see wl at is actually said and done in Con- I
t gresa, and to judge for themselves, rather than to
^ receive impressions altogether from galvanic bat '
. teries. There are others, too, who, for the sake
^ of the future, willingly patronize a work which
e preserves a full record of the doings of ibe great
t moving and controlling power of the Republic.
I The undersigned has made preparations commensurate
with the increased importance of the t
t duly he has undertaken as the only reporter and c
publisher of the complete debates and proceedings (
\ of both Houses of (^tigress. The coming session
will probsbly be extended nine monthe, and
, the reports will not be comprised in lees than 3500 t

The Dailt Globe will ba published during the

era, and as altered by the speakers, whenever they t|
make any alterations; the current newa of the r
day, and miscellaneous matter.* The main object
for publising the daily paper is, to enable Members

The CoMoassaioNAL Globs is made up of the n
daily proceedings of the two Houses of Congress, n
and printed on a double royal paper, with small n
type, (brevier and nonpareil,) in quarto form, u
each number containing sixteen royal quarto u
pages. The speeches of the Members, in tfiia first w
ft>rm, are sometime condensed?the full report of ^
the prepered speeches being reserved for tne Ap- f(
pevdix. All reaolutiona, motions, and other pro- ()
reedings, are given in the form of the Journals, t
with the yeas and nays on every important quee- t
The Appendix ia made up of the President's (t
Annual Mesaaea, the Reports of the principal ir
Oflfirere of the Government that accompany it, and ?
all Speeches of Members #f Congress, written
out or revised by themselves. It is printed in the *
same form ea the Comosessioiial Globs, and ni
usually makes about lha same number of pages
during a ees*ion. a
During the first month or etx weeks of a see- ft
sion, there ia rarely more buemeaa done than will M
make two numbers a week?one of the CeiroaEB- 0
siomal Globe and ona of the A praams ; but dur- u
ing tha remainder of a aesaion, there ia usually
sufficient matter for two or three numbers of each |(
evary week. The next eeeaion will be unusually _
intareating ; therefore, we calculate that the ComOBEftrowAL
Glcbe and Appentii together will ni
make at laast 3500 large quarto pages, printed in r
email type?brevier and nonpareil. We furnish M
complete Indexes to both at the end of a aeaaion. ?l
We will endeavor to print a sufficient number o
surpluscoptea to supply all that may be miscarried, ?
or lost in the mails ; but aubecribera should be t0
very particular to file their pepere carefully, for
fear that we should not be able to supply ail the ?

They also propose, especially, to urge
pon Congress a modification of the laws relatto
contracts for carrying the mail, ao aa toaulorire
the Poet Office Defwrtment to contract for
is perpetual use of Rail-Roads, and, instead of
eying, as now, quarterly on contrecu for four
rare, to advance in Ave per cent, bonds of the
Jetted Su.tra, chargeable upon the revenues of
lie Poet Office Departmental! amount, the inte
rat upon which at 6 per cent, would equal the
leymenca now made.
The geverntnent now pays $3(10 per utile ft>r
arrying the mail on first class Rail-Koada. This
i 6 per cent, on $5,000. The undersigned would
rge that, instead of paying $30* a mile, per an
urn, tha Department -hould deliver, on a contract
perpetuity, five $1,000 bond a, bearing an inte
rat or live per etMom. At this mu the?rharge
pon the Department would be reduced from $300
> $250 e mile, per annum, and the $M per mile
ved would creetea (inking fund which will, in a
rwveure.pay offihe Bonda,and fire the nee of ouch
tKioe forever thereafter, free or all change ; therey
effecting a Taat saving on the pr? %t annual
speudituree of the Po t Office Department, and
consequent reduction of the ratee of poata^e.
The effect will be no leea advantageous to Rati
load Companiee than to the government. For
istanee, aurh a contract would give to the BaluK>re
and Ohio Rail-Road Company more than
2,000,000, which wnuld enable that complete ite
>ad at an early day, and greatly utcreaee ita buaereaand
But to meet objectkme and imprtoe the public
lind with a proper eenee of the benefits to result
om thm measure will require concert of action
nd continued active effort, through the preae ind
therwiee. The undersigned tender their eai vicea
i your Company, expecting a reasonable comanaaiion,
partly contingent upon the eucceas of *
ic meaeure ; and reepeetfully suggest the pronely
of your vending one or more delegate* to
lie city, on ihe Ural Wedeneday in December
ext. to confer with delegates from other Reload
Companies, aa to the data lie of the prupoaI
arrangement and the beat mode of bringing the
ibject before Congress.
Sltould it be your pleasure to accept of our
