Thk history of what ia known as the Military Reconstruction hill was virtually finished yes terday by the refusal of the Senate to unite with the House of Representatives in appoint ing a Committee of Conference upon the mat ters of difference between the two bodies. It is of comparatively litthi consequence what may be the final action of this Congress upon the measure, for the session is bo far advanced that the President can defeat the passage of any bill that does not suit him, by merely pocketing it. We are not disposed to mourn oyer the practical postponement of the whole question to the Fortieth Congress. The Military Re construction bill, or, more corroctly, the bill to provide a more efficient Government for the Rebel States, as it passed the House, was simply and purely a police bill, to provide for the protection of life and property in the Rebel States against the anarchy which prevails there. It did not embrace the work of recon struction, but left that to be completed by further legislation. The Senate, however, tacked on to the bill a quasi reconstruction scheme, which, being the fruit of an attempted compromise among its own members, meant something or nothing, just as one might choose. It seemed, in one light, to recognize Mr. Johnson's State Governments; and in another, not to. It apparently contemplated the formation of Constitutions in those States, bat it provided no rules and regulations under which such a movement could be inaugurated. It fixed no definite starting point from which regular and legal action might take its depar ture. In fact, as to the work of reconstruction, it left everything in chaos. It was apparently an attempt to avoid the metaphysical scruples of some of the conservative Republi cans, who are hopelessly lefogged over the question of State existence. We are confident that nothing could have been done under the fifth section of the bill; and, on the whole, we are glad that the House rejected the Senate's amendments. The whole matter now goos over to the Fortieth Congress, in which politi cal elements are more closely defined, and from which we may hope for prompt and de cisive action. The hair, and Who are to See It. On Friday, the chair in which John Hancock sat when he signed the Declaration of Inde pendence is to be replaced in its ancient posi tion in the Hall of Independent.. After re maining for a number of years at Harrisburg, where it was conveyed in remarkably bad taste for what possible claim has that dis agreeable village to anything but shad and legislators, it is once more to be returned to the spot where it stood ninety year ago. When it was authentically discovered that the remarkable relic really was insulted by being kept at the State Capital, a Committee of the Historical Society was deputed to return it. Petitions were presented, bills were introduced, laws were signed by the Governor, and, after a wonderful display of red tape, the old chair is to re-enter the city of Phila delphia , in triumph. We have not heard whether a special train will be plaoed at its disposal, or whether Councils will go out to meet it at the Pennsylvania Railroad depot. If our City Fathers have any thing to do with it, we feel well assured that the chair will be feted and toasted at a neat collation, at the city's expense. When the relio arrives at Independence Hall, it will be weloomed by the Committee of the Historical Society, and the Mayor will reply for it, in one of his happy speeches. The chair will then be fitted into position. Mr. Ingersoll and . Judge Reed will take hold of its back legs, Judge Woodward and Judge Shars wood its front legs. It will be steadied on the right by ; Judge Allison, and on the left by Judge Cad walader, while General Meade will support its back. In solemn state it will be borne round the room like the Host at the Carnival, and finally placed where a century ago it stood. . This ceremony is to be performed in the pre sence of a select assemblage, collected in the Hall of Independence. Wo suppose our readers know the size of the room. It would comtortably lioM about two hundred people. The following gentlemen will be in the room, and witness the ceremony. The Governor aud his Cubicet, about io about " 0t the H,ale' ci'y nd County, counciii ai'iuast"!!'!! so iieuusol City Dep u tnients, uboul Je I)esoenUauts of t!io sign.,:, at least.'. 400 . lloitlculturol Society, about 1.50 . Army and Navy, nt least loo Boiafeisof lMisuy 100 Press, at least 50 The number entitled, at the lowest estimate, to admission reaches eight hundred and ! twenty-five. The iiumlmr who probably will le present and demand admission will exceed five times that nuuux'r. Total who can get into the room, two hundred. The balance will look at the windows, and study the architec tural beauty of the Hall. The descendants, whom we have moderately put down at th.-ee 4 hundred, will, in all human probability, num ber three thousand. We do not envy the Committee on Invitations. The children and children's children of the venerable signers will rise up like those created by the legend of Deucalion. That god was instructed to throw over Wa shoulders the bones of his grand mother, tho earth, -and for every stone thus thrown a descendant sprang hito existence. Then , to decide on tho consanguiulty. Will children by marriage be admitted, or will only the blood relations be included f Will the family trees bo examined under oath, or will merely their production be considered proof f How many descendants have Robert Morris, Benjamin Rush, Benjamin Franklin, John Wharton, George Clymer, James Smith, George Taylor, James Wilson, and George Ross t Will every one bearing their names be admitted f If so, the Directory reveals 1700 Smiths, some GOO Wilsons, 300 Taylors, and a collateral supply of Morrises, Franklins, Rosses, and Whartous. Now the task before tho committee is a thankless one, and as almost every pretentious family in the city lays claim to such a desoent for the signers are as prolific in Philadelphia as the crew of the May Flower in Now Eng land we may expoct tho lives of tho judges of the claims to be in jeopardy. Besides, why should the descendants of tho signers have any more right in the Hall than any other American citizen f We know the descendants of some of the signers who have so far forgot ten tho patriotism of their ancestors as to be a disgrace to our nation in her hour of peril, i Why should such men as they be entitled to honor not allotted to any citizen ? The poorest private in the war is better than they. How ever, in the presence of such as can crowd into the Hall the ceremony will Ik? performed, and another seat besides Franklin's pew be afforded on which country visitors will feel it a duty to recline, in order that they may bo able to tell the folks at home, "Wo have sat in Hancock's chair." Female Suffrage in the Mercantile Library. Tub exercise of the elective franchise by women was practically illustrated yesterday at the election of officers for the Mercantile Library. A poll was opened for female stock holders in the same room where the men voted, and the ladies cast 15G votes, the busi ness of voting on the part of both' sexes pro ceeding at tho same time without the slightest confusion or disorder, although the crowd in attendance was quite as large as that to be witnessed at many of the polls at a regular election for the officers of Government. Tho ladies walked up and deposited their ballots with as much sang-froid as though they had been accustomed to voting all their lives. As illustrating how the thing might be done, this vcting at the Mercantile Library election is worthy of note. ' " A Murder in Open Court. A thurible tragedy, resulting in the instant death of a prisoner, occurred in the Court of Quarter Sessions of this city this morning. A full account of it is given in our local columns. We doubt if a similar instance has ever occur red in the history of jurisprudence. The circumstances are, briefly, that some months ago the prisoner is said to have com mitted an outrage upon a little girl, ami as he was this morning being brought into Court, the girl's father drew a revolver and shot him dead in the presence of tho Court and the bystanders. The whole thing was one of those terrible exhibitions of human passion as appalling as it was unexpected. Tub bill regulating the tenure of office has passed both branches of Congress, and awaits the action of the President. It will probably be vetoed, but it is a wise and just measure of general reform, and should become a law. AMUSEMENTS. English Opkra. Sonnambula, as a whole, was commendably rendered last evening by the talented Riclilugs troupe, and considerable enthusiasm was manifested by the audience, particularly at the close of the second act, when the principal singers were complimented with a recall before the curtain. The cavatinas of Miss Ilicblnco, the various concerted pieces, and the choruses; were excellently sung; but some of the solos of Mr. Castle were not quite up to the artistic standard. His "Still so Gently," was not near as satisfactory a per- formauce as we could have wished it to be, and his singing generally was wanting in force and the animation necessary to make It effective. He and tha whole troupe work too hard, and in that fact an excuse may be found for Mr. Cas tle's shortcomings lust evening. Mr. Campbell was very correct and forcible in his rendering of "Count Uudolpho," and sang his sols, par ticularly the "As I View Now" admirably. Mrs. Arnold's "Lisa" was very good, and the or chettra was truly excellent, and was kept well in hand by the able leader, Mr. ftictrloli. Linda will be performed this evening for the benefit of Mrs. K. Heguiu, the favorite contralto of the troupe, and a most estimable and deserv ing ludy. The opera Is well cast, and will doubt less be very successfully given. A largo and brilliant audience, we trust, will bo present to enjoy lis manifold beauties, and to show our appreciation of the efl'orts of the popular and t.ilented benrficiure.
