America haaiuade rapid strides in later years in all that pertains to dti advance ment of art and science, the perfection of government, and the elevation of humanity. She demonstrated the in herent power of the people to per petuate their government in a war un paraleled in modern history, and sup pressed rebellion with a lrusp of iron that would have destroyed any govern meet in the world. Yet twice, in '62 and '64, the hold relaxed,the loyal hand was weakened, for the tide was out and the people were breathing. Loyalty conquered, finally. The principles of the Republic were established on vic torious fields: her statutes, written by the sword upon the brazen, prostrate front of rebellion. It only remained for the representatives of the people to in scribe upon the books the resolve of the nation. With careful diligence they set about the task and while stern Jus tice guided the pen, Mercy followed its tracings and in forgiving charity eras ed the harsher lines.

SYNOPSIS OF BILLS. The following Lills have reached the frovernor's hands and will doubtless be come laws: Council Bill No. 1 locates the county seat of Missoula county at Missoula Mills. Council Bill No. 7-Pro vides that hereafter the Legislature of Montana shall convent, at the Capital on the first Monday of Ih~eember, at M. each year.

A refusal to perform labor may be pun ished by solitary confinement on bread and water. Labor may be compelled for the payment of any fine or penalty lear posed by the tribunals. The benefita of such labor to revert to the counties or corporations under which the labor Is ordered. " THE STATE OFP MONTANA." Under the above caption the Democrat of this week has a lengthy article pre senting in ex~enao the arguments in favor of a State organization "at the earliest day possible." The most glar ring omission in the article is in its neg lect to mention that several very, able gentlemen are now willing to assume the responsibility of shouldering all the burdens of office connected with a State organization it the people of Montana would pay the expenses in stead of the general government. It needed that point made clear to com plete the argument. Of the resultant ad vantages of State sovereignty, the as sured permanaacy of its laws is the chief argument used, and an increased immigration claimed as the result. Cal ifornia, Nevada, Iowa and Nebraska are referred to as examples of the prosperity attending States after emerging from Territorial dependence. Taking the Arst named State, there were many ar guments in favor of its admission not applicable to Montana. It was a newly acquired possession. containing a very large percentage of native inhabitants nnt. .iti7ana nf th. TlniteA ftate. ann not ciuzens or true uniTea oraes sna constantly attracting large numbers of foreigners. Remoteand isolated from all other States, its erection into a State Government was demanded by consid erations of paramount importsace not presented in this Territory. The Das.. erat says the vote of Nevada when ad mitted as a State in 1864, was 9,659. This is an error. It was . 0. It ar gues that since then that N1vads has materially advanced in population and t.e same result would occur In Me. taaa, Unfortanately for the emaeoot' a gument the entire Mte fo~ r OeraorIa Nevada last yeafon a full ibl was ay 9,168, a decrease of 7,258 votes and apon the Democrat's basis of comptlg pop uation a deeresse of 680 'I pepolea tion. This totally upsets Its thedry t the attraction of taatt. The A.s@ crat also asserts tho Netada after di bursnng $60,000 last year had $51,000 remal.ag in the Treasury. Now, un dear a Ste orgaisatI, that saoat Imst have beenoo trt m' .,- e Die by ~tsa Ms Arhe she laee ees it Meaneaa &dos vt e ums~n u aeti ditional yearly tai of $111,1100. lMiioera mall iL ed.'` power" with '*$dh O *Mtith lk " took bed of tbc.seC4ri l P' iImaff ilk " priehd brwad the enpisdpas eatp. prise " In anedher peaagp ak k l.e that Calffornia BIs 80N;3O- InhaibltazA, whilean exhibitptoIl State for 1566 shows a property valuation of $19t 133, 345, quite enough poplationanad 'rapil to live any oematawealtah tjpuence. Montana has not over 25,000population to dayr on a mo0t libseal estimate, pad her property valuato io s 3$ 8,118; neither men or money sutfcient to buThl the North Pacific 1ailroad. Be aids the Union Pacific Railroad was a compay pretjet. It received an appro pritona of 064,300,000 from Congress and a donation of 12,800, acres of iandfor each of the 13:31 miles between Omaka and San Francisco, in all 17, 049,600 acres, the most Itmeagfitest endowment ever bestowed on any tn terprise. California as a State has never given any material aid to the U. P. R. R., that we are aware of, the only dona tion being $400,000 by the city of San Francisco and 39 acres of land by Sacra. mento city. California has a State debt r of nearly four million do)lars, and has not seen fit to add to it by " taking hold " of a railroad estimated to cost one hun dred and fifty millions. W'e do not men tion these statisties as an argument against State organization, . but merely to show the fallacy ot the DemoCra4"a argument. When we have the populh tion to sustain a State organization with ,out an oppressive tax upon the people, our voice will be for the " State of Mon ta.a; " but it is unwise to cut our lead ing strings before we are able to waik, and equaily impolitic to agitate a menas ure that has no hope of present succer:e andl is not warranted by existing circumn stances. What assistance we can obtain from the general go vernment.in the way of appropriations for public buildings and the assumption ot the govtirnmentanI expenses of the Territory, we would for feit as a State, and by the general gov ernment the young commonwealths must ir be sustained. The obedience of our peo ple to the laws we are proud to concur in asserting; and more than this, in S'sor let is be said, the Commissioner of Internal Revenue has stated that there was no district in the Union where the United States taxes were so promptly r and fully paid as in the Territory of Montana. Let these things be in our favor while soliciting favorable appro a priations from the government as r Ter ritory. With the building of the Union and North Pacific Railroads; the devel opment of our mineral veins; the better navigation of the Missouri, and the sup pression ofIndian difficulties, will come a flow of immigration large enough to entitle us to the sovereignty of a State, and bear its expenses without excessive taxation. We deem it unnecessary to refer to the vexatious delays and legie lation in regard to other territories seek ing admission under parallel circum stances. There are many advantages a accruing from a State organization, but )f the preponderance of evidence is against it, Better to labor with diligence and wait with patience until time and cir cumEtances have reversed the situation. t- and we can knock boldly at the doors of the Union, and in the full strength of vigorous manhood, s:y. " I am of age let me speak for nryself." AN OFFICER PUNISHED. The following appears in one of the otfcial papers east, published by author ity of the department : Second Assistant Engineer George F. Saw 3 yer, United States navy, tried at Portsmouth, N. H., by a court martial, has been found guilty of disrespect to his superior ofcer in declaring that the President ought to be im peached; and, by order of Secretary Welles, be has been suspended from duty for one year, on half pay. He was tried on the charge of using disrespectful language towards the Pres ident, and it was proven on trial that he said " the Senate would probably im s peach tmue Preddeat, and he ought to - be impeached."" In a conversation with two other officere, who denounoed Con I. gress as " tyrannical," " usurping " and " unconstitutional," the remark was drawn from Mr. Sawyer by an attack up on a per.oasi tried.. He was reported to the Secretary of the Navy, a eourt I martial convened,and being found guilty; r sentenced as above. If we remember aright, an officer has as tnnh right to speak dirtespetfa lUy of the President as of Congress, and if Democratic officers are entitled to the privilege of condemn ing Benators, the rule should apply to Republican officers who do not look with Sloving eye spther E*btist.
