Co5ores will, from present Indioationn, adjourn in a few days, but on account of the dinger that Andrew Johnson maj attempt jonie of tbe extraordiuary demonstrations for wLkh be is famous, if be is allowed to exer cise unrestricted power, it seems probable tbat provision will be made for another session, in September. Tbe failure of impeaobmeut baa apparent! not ret been attended with an Yerj serious results, but the capa city and dipposition of the President to jeopardize tbe peace and welfare of tbe nation, can only be tested in tbe absenoe of tbe legislative guardians of tbe republio from tbe capital. Experience baa shown that his conduct can be measured by no ordinary rales, And that be inay at aoy moment confound both friends aid enemies by a policy peculiarly his own. If Congress, however, reserves the lower to reassemble before the Presidential election, there will be comparatively little danger tbat tbe nation will be startle! by dan gerous usurpations. One gratifying feature of the proceedings of the present Congress is the care which has keen taken to perfect, as far as possible, all important legislation before the confusion whiou usually marks tbe closing hours has legun to prevail. This is especially true in Jegard to tbe appropriation bills. Creditable efforts have been made to confine the expendi tures of tbe Government to the smallest possi ble limits, and they have been so far successful 3 to elicit tbe commendations of tbat Vigilant watch-dog of the Treasury, Mr. tVasbbnrne, of Illinois. lie announced in the JJoase on Tuesday that, exclusive of the ap propriations for interest and bounties, tbe current expenditures authorized would only Slightly exceed one hundred millions of dollars in greenbacks, while during Mr. Bu chanan's administration, with a smaller population and fewer pressing necessities, more than seventy millions in gold was re quired for similar purposes. General Grant Set the example of economy by tbe estimates he made while acting as Secretary of War, and Congress has wisely made an enormous reduction in the estimates submitted by Mr. Johnson's extravagant Cabinet ofiijers. The Republican party can therefore present in the Presidential campaign a practical evidence of its disposition to reduce the national expendi tures. One of the other important fruits of tbe ses sion is the law passed some months ago, ar resting tbe progress of contraction of tbe cur rency. Great cbaDges have also been made in the Internal Revenue law, by reducing the taxes on manufactures, and to a considerable extent remodelliog the whole system. A Singular state of uncertainty existed yesterday in official circles at Washington, as to whether the President bad or had not signed the new tax bill. On tbe one band, Speaker Colfax announced that the Private Seoretary of the President had officially announced to the House f Representatives that the bill had been signed, together with forty-two other recent enactments, and on the other the Com missioner of Internal Revenue wa3 informed by the President that he bad not signed the bill. The latest news telegraphed last night Was tbat there was some mistake in the official announcement to the Uonse, and special tele -grams state that the President declares it was sot signed with any authority from bim, and tbat he does not intend to sign it. It is diffi cult to reconcile these conflicting statements by any other supposition than that the White , HouEe contains an ad interim Executive. The most important and exciting subjects are those which directly relate to the coming Presidential election. Tbe Democraoy ar) endeavoring to surround this subject with doubt and uncertainty,notwith3tandiDg tbe au thority given by the Constitution, to determine all matters relating to the Electoral College. As several States remain unreconstructed on account of the hostility of their Rebel inhabi tants to the conditierjB prescribed by Congress, they will be excluded from legal partioipationin the Presidential election as they were in 1SG4. Tbe Democracy are not only inclined to en courage the revolutionary proceeding of in sisting tbat tbe votes thus excluded shall be counted, but they wold like to hold elections in all the Rebel States under the Provision il Governments galvanized by Johnson, rather than under those which have been established by proper authority. Tbe law passed some days ago in spite of the veto will effectually dispose of this nention, unless the President contrives aom dangerous and revolutionary method of re-openinjr it while Congress is not in session. The proposal to distribute arms to tbe new loyal State Govern ments is also connected, to a considerable ex tent, with this subject. If the rebels see that they can have no rational proEpect of holding elections, under the defeated Johnson pro gramme, they may attempt to carry the recon structed States by force and terrorism. Some Of them do not attempt to conceal their dispo sition to regain political ascendancy by violent measure?, and as they etill possess many of tbe arms they used against the Union troops, It seems but jnet tbat tbe loyal men of the South should also be furnished with weapons for tbe legitimate purpose of protecting the governments eatabliwhed. by tlie will of tbe . t The Real Ixsne of the Cnmpiira. Tas letter of General Blair, the Demoe'atii! candidate for the highly Important office ot Vice-President of the United States, present a most revolting picture of what will follow a victory of that party In November. It ie sufficient to open theeyei of the kind of parti sans who have, for several months past, been aiking whether they could possibly grow worse under a Democratic than tley have under a Republican administration. There can be no mistaking tbe decision of oharaoter of General Blair, so far as the question is concerned; and the fact, that after reading his letter tbe Convention nominated bim as their candidate is sufficient proof for all thinking people that tbe views of all the party substantially agree. Let us look at the facts which will fo'.low tbe success of such a ticket on such a platform. The cardinal issue laid down by tbe Vice-Presidential nominee is tbe overthrow of all the wtk of reconstruc tion in tbe Southern States. We cannot avoid seeing that it is the test issue of the campaign. Whether or not tbe present State governments in the South shall continue, or wl ether they fball give place to the old governments wbiuh they succeeded, the present form of government in tlit. koulh is a necessity. There ia none othr tbat can take its place. Suppose, for iustau, tbe Democracy would take from a oolored m in bis dearly bought ballot, what would result ? We rpeak in a spirit of anxious anticipation, when we say that San Domingo receive! a lesson which it would be well for us to deeply remember. The black race is one oa which tbe burdens of injustice can be laid with com parative safety; but there is also a piut where any farther addition will oaiue th trodden man to turn on his pursuer. Can wj venture to endanger the peace of the entire South by laying any more burdens on ? We must rememoer that the blanks of to-day are not the slaves of 18G0. Th-re has been a mighty change. The then deluded, ignoraut, and unappreciative people have now learned the meaning of the word ' 'freedom," of tbe word "right." They now know tbat they have certain privileges, which it is injustice to re move from them. Knowing this, and feeling as they do, that an attempt is b-iiug male to deprive them of their new-found liberty, will not they be liable to the persecutions of wretched demagogues, and miy not they suc ceed in their efforts to stir up strife and cause a fearful revelation? We depre cate any such dreadful ailliction, but when we say to the colored man, "You cannot vote," do we not run the risk of exasperating him, and leading to just such murderous scenes as rendered the name of San Domingo a horror ? We might as well recoguiz the fact that the ballot once given can never be taken away, save through a revolution. We can deny to a people, unjustly, its possession, but once given it must be alvays afterwards allowed. General Blair's letter, therefore, means revolutivn, bloodshed, and the total over throw of all the relations of tbe South. Again, it should be remembered on whom will tbe mantle of politioal iuilunce fall. There are but two classes tbe loyalists and the ex llebels, and they are Rebels still. These are the only classes who can rale. Deprive the blacks of their votes, and the Rebels must, of necessity, have undisputed sway. Can we afford to trust this vast power in these Rebel hands? Are the loyal people of the North prepared to accept this end for all their exertion ? It means to us wide-spread ruin a total overthrow of all that we have done since the war closed. Let tbe Democracy succeed, and we stand in a far worse position than we did in 18(55. Wo have tried an experiment; we have failed. We can't retrace our steps without acknowledging all our til'orts failures, and are utterly inoa pable of guiding a nation. We vote ourselves foe!; worse than fools; we have acted as knaves in plunging our country madly for ward into a position which she cannot retain, livery vote cast for Seymour and Bbir means simply this; and any Republican who, threugh dissatisfaction or idleoomplaiat, will thus vote, insults his party and proclaims himself to a'l tbe world as far more unfit for tbe exercUe of tbe right of suffrage than tbe negro whom he is seeking to disfranchise. Foundling Hospitals. It is, humanly speaking, rather a good sign of the . times when tbe dainty spirit which re coiled before tbe contemplation of some of the evils that infest, and always have infested, society, are not shunned by delicate femalds and pruriently affected gentlemen. Society now knows that thsre are evils, deep and dark, from which it must no longer shrink. It begins to realize tbat if the social atmosphere is to be tept pure, or at least attempted to be kept pure, from taints which afflict the whole body pelitio, tbat the way to remove, or, i1 not entirely to remove, to mitigate these evils, is to meet them boldly and uashrinkingly. There was a time, and tbat not so very long ago, when, if a Miss Nightingale had Bug. gested the propriety of delicately nurtured and highly cultivated ladies entering into the precincts and confronting the filthy recesses of a male hospital, such a proposal would have been received with as much aston ishment as if it had been suggested that ladies of this day should take in washing ! It was only recently, we may say, that the public press, conjointly with ministers of all denomi nations, would allude in tbe faintest manner to the disgrace and harrow of what is per haps rather euphemistically called tbe social evil. Fortunately, if tbe remedy for its eradi cation has not yet been found, it is honorable to tbe courage and humanity of the noble minded ladies of our own city who were not afraid, on behalf of tbe Rosine Association, I which they represented, to attempt to rescue I from the path worse than that which lealeth i even unto tbe valley of tbe Bhadow of death, erring sisters belonging to tbe same , Laman family, created by the common iVther, , 9 f iWi tUf. voiee of these purg rgja- olonsrles muet have been like the angnl tongned, pleading to thm to leave the abodes of sin and wretoheduss, we have only to re flect that, according to reoent statisticians, who compiled their statements from the re- or 's of a neighboring city, the average dura tion of life among these outcasts is very low. The majority of them, it is believed, die pre maturely at from t ix'een to seventeen years of age t That all are not hardened is well known; and from the papers of one poor woman who died in 01agow, the phyiticiau in attendance found some lines whioh he male known after the unfortunate had gon where the wicked cease from troubling anl the weary are at rest. We have only room for one couplet: "When rttunpored, starved, abandoned, or In ill Ink, My Un iwhf were racked In striving not to itiliinr We were led into this train of thought from tbe subject before u, which subj-ct seems to have been nearly as much avoided as the other to which we have alluded. Tuera has been and even yet there is a prejudice in vhls country against the establishment of foani ling bonpiUls, aod yet these are to be fount u nearly all couutries, even in CUiaa aud ttai sia. So in America the necessity for their exist ence has existed, it should seem, ever since infanticide has been practiced, and it has been practised ever since we have had any annals of history, dting hick to Egypt. We could fill column after column with historical and medical details of this child murder as it is practised ia various forms, but the regular readers of oar daily journal and court reports kuow enough without our permitting ourselves to fill oar pages with these most repulsive particulars. The very statistics are alarming to read. 0 ir readers will know to what a frightful extent this murderous crime ha become in oar country. It is almost, if the medical anl law reports are true, like an epidemic spreading over the laud. The question to be comi lered if, would the establishment of found ling hospitals prevent in any way tbe commirtsion of this almost uni. versal crime? Oar own experience testifies that it would not. We no more be live tbat they would eradicate this evil than the establishment of the Rosioe Associa tion would eradicate th evil it seek3 to ame liorate; bnt like that, it is worthy of a tri t'. We think common sense would dictate that if a woman should be so unuAturally inclined a to seek to destroy her offspring, the very fear of detection, if not humanity, would rather impel her to deposit her infant in a place of this kind thau to incur any other rifk. We would, at all events, like to see the experi. nifciit tri d. I'i-mark and Kings William A letter from Berlin says: "Count BliainrH is iu full ponvnleoeuce.
