Hoth branches of the Legislature organized on
Tuosdar, and withott any smash of the slates as set
tled In caucus. The previous cveulng violent rumors
filled the capital and the crowded hotels of the proba
ble defeat of both Wallace and Webb, by disorgani
zation in the respective parties; bat the boated Ima
ginations of the Disappointed aspirants for plunder
ing; tHe party cumps created most of the stories afloat.
It was assnmed that Buckulcw would defeat Wal
lace, 83 they are not supposed to be greatly la love
with each other; but dispassionate men never
doubtet that the Democrats would bo in solid line
for their candidates when the hour of trial came.
Wallace accepted his new honors with becoming
modesty and dignity, and delivered an address that
had the peculiar merit of originality, a well as a
high measu'c of ability and fitness. lie spoke like a
statesman or liberal and well-considered views, and
referred p intedly to the policy of progress as the
true one for the Commonwealth. lie proclaimed
reform as the great cardinal measure
of the day, and Inspired the Democracy
wiih new ide is and new Impulses as ho ignored the
dead Issues of the past, and moved forward boldly
to accent the living questions which are vital In the
new order of things, lie appreciates that there has
been a desperate war; that Rebellion, treason,
State rights, slavery, and caste are overthrown to
rise no more, and that reconstruction and the
amendments of the Constitution, as auxiliary
thereto, am as irrevocable as the laws of gravitation.
"Uncle Jake Zcigler" obeyed the call of the
Senate, and was tostalled behind the Chief Clerk's
dealt. He smiles as kindly as In the days of yore,
and his voice has all the melody of youth as he
calls the names of the grave (Senators and reads
the petitions, res lutions, and bills; but his locks
are deeply silvered, his Jolly face has rude furrows
ploughed through It, and his eyes rcfiiro to perform
their otiice without the aid f the old
fashioned spectacles. Hamersly is also
here, bat an invalid, and is probably not sorry that
his Old chum of the quill has succeeded him. Both
hare been legislators in the better days of legisla
tion; both have been editors, and Zeigler still con
tinues in the rural editorial chair, and both have
been clerks here when the oldest existing hat was
In the House there were some ripples upon the
Republican surface, and deep, sullen muttcrlngs of
discontent prevailed. A bolt on Webb was seriously
contemplated on Monday, but on Tuesday calmer
counsels prevailed, and Webb received the entire
Republican vote, with the exception of Mr. Wiley,
Of Lancaster. Mr. Relnoehl, of the same county,
was freely canvassed as a probable bolting candi
date for Speaker; but he did not encourage the
effort. Had he consented, it Is probable that he
could have been elected, tteneral Selfrldge was
chosen clerk without a contest, as was Mr. Lee,
the assistant; but a determined and violent opposi
tion was manifested to defeat Mr. Ovens of Phila
delphia, the Republican nominee for Sergeant-at-Arms.
80 far had the opposition gone
that the combination was perfected with the Demo
crats to defeat him by an Independent Republican,
but Mr. Elliott, his special champion, made a most
earnest appeal for him, vouching for his blameless
character and competency ; and the opposition was
finally withdrawn. He was denounced bitterly by
many In the party as unworthy of a public position,
while tne Democrats Insisted that f hey could not be
censured for pressing Ahern while Ovens was a
favorite with the Republicans.
The Senate was scarcely organized until there
waa a general scramble to lead oh for a Constitu
tional Convention. General White read his bill m
place. Senator Connell also got his bill presented,
and Buckaiew made a shrewd flank movement and
pressed through a resolution lor a special reform
committee. Such is the effect of the popular de
mand for reform, and I doubt whether there is a
vote In the Senate that will not be cast for some
sort of a convention bill. In the House the measure
is certain or nearly a unanimous support. There
will be various differences as to the details or the
bill, but they will be reconciled, and it will pass be
fore the 1st of February.
The contest for Treasurer is still as bitter as ever.
Judging from the surface of the political caldron,
the success of the Republican candidate is not pos
sible; but the grave dangers attending a Republican
defeat in a Republican Legislature may force the
contending parties to union and conciliation. A
clear majority of the Republican members prefer
Mackey, and he would be elected but for the fatal
friendship of Cameron. Most of Mackey's strength
Is his own rather than Cameron's; but the fact
that Cameron supported him in the unwarrant
able defeat of Irwin in 1869 sticks to
him like the brand of a malefactor. If
Cameron were dead and forgotten, Mucker
would go through easily; but Cameron living is
worse than a skeleton in Mackey's political house
hold. As the fiercest blasts of the tempest often
just precede the returning sunlight, so the political
tempest In the Republican ranks may be stilled in
time by its very violence. While Mackey is floun
dering under the crushing load of Cameron, it Is but
just to say that Cameron will be faithfully for the
man whi la elected. No matter who he may be,
whether Mackey, Jones, or Snooks, Cameron will
be' able to demonstrate that he made his election.
R Cameron has thrown up the sponge at last. The
sad truth is forced upon him that he has reached
the evening ef his power, and its shadows are
gathering around him like unwelcome whispers
of dying applause.
The crowds of worshippers around the altar of
Ms promises and plunder, turn with keenest scent
from the cold trail of the stricken leader, and are
prowling in every direction for pastures new and
worthier gods. Distrusted in Washington by the
national administration, repudiated at home by the
people who would cherish grateful memories of a
declining remnant of personal or political worth ;
unfelt in the counsels of his party, save as Its mis
fortunes have culminated from his crimes,
he now sits fretfully In the
great office he bought for honor, and sees a mighty
commonwealth turn with omnipotent and vengeful
power upon the laws which made his success pos
sible. He declines a re-election to the Senate !
Be declines every hour in the day, and to every
listener. He hurls his declination after faint and
fading friends, and makes It the gentle offering to
soften and disarm those who have manfully braved
bis remorseless rule. The terrible spectre of reform
is before him, as with giant tread and resistless
power it pricks the bauble of his
crown, and turns to smoking ashes
the Insignia be waa proud to win in shame. Men
who have bowed when he commanded now rush
with unseemly haste to gain the honor of making it
Impossible for future Legislatures to elevate future
Camerons as future libels upon popular integrity,
and, bereft of followers, he seeks refuge from the
retribution of the people by retirement. He has de
clined before as o'teu as It was necessary to defraud
the better men who yielded to peace upon hli pro
fessions; but now he declines In sorrowful earnest,
because it is the only harbor of safety. Let it be
said of him, that for once he has done what will
make rejoicing wherever patriotism has a votary.
The defeat of Ahern and Laws did not sit
well ou the Fourth ward crowd, and Mully
lambs made the town more than lively by
their denunciations of the henators who did not
EUbtain them. In their general hilarity over their
defeat, they punished an undue quantity of bad
whisky, and amused themselves iu the highly origi
nal way cf firing a few bullets now and then
through the doors of hostile democratic
