ADJOURNMENT OF CONGRESS.
Congress adjourned on Saturday last at
noon. Tbe most important bills passed by
this, the first session of the Forty first Con
gress, are the amended Tenure ofOffiesAct,
and tbe bill for tbe restoration and recon
straction of the States of Virginia, Missis
sippi and Texas, both of which will be found
in another part of this paper. The closing
scenes of the sesiion are said to have been :
characterized by unusual order and decorum.
All the bills of pressing importance were
disposed of, and the business of the session
is said to have been closed in better shape
than any previous session since the war.
The I'resident called an extra session of the
Senate for tbe confirmation of important
appointments. The extra session is expect
ed to continue two or three weeks. Kever
dy JohnsoD : s Alabama treaty will be con
sidered, and it is said most likely rejected.
Jt will however receive a thorough discus
sion.
THE FIFTEENTH AMENDMENT.
The following States have ratified the pro
posed Fifteenth Amendment to the Con
stitution: Kansas ratified the amendment
February 27; Louisiana and Nevada, 3larch
1; Missouri, March 2; West Virginia,
March 3; North Carolina, Illinois, Michi
gan and Wisconsin, March 5 ; Maine and
South Carolina, March 11; Massachusetts,
March 12; Arkansas, March 15; and
Pennsylvania .March 25. The Assembly of
New York ratified the amendment March
17; it is yet to be acted upon by the Senate.
Georgia and Delaware refused to ratify.
Rhode Island holds off until May. Missouri,
Kansas and Nevada blundered in their ac
tion and their ratification goes for nothing.
In Indiana the Democrats resigned their
seats in the Legislature and prevented a
quorum.
THE CONSTITUTIONAL AMEND
MENT.
The ratification of the 13th amendment
seems now to be rendered certain. Twenty
eight states arc required to ratify it, and
twenty-four have already done so. Con
necticut and Rhode Island are now sure to
ratify it, which will make twenty-six. There
is now every probability that tho states of
Texas, Virginia and Mississippi will speedi
ly be restored under the bill just passed, and
ratify the amendment as required by that
bill. If aDy of these thouhl fail wc still
have Ohio, California and Oregon, from
which to make up any deficiency.
THE VICTORY IN CONNECTICUT turn
out to have been a complete rout of the
Cops, Though the vote was ten thousand
less than last year, when Grant had three
thousand majority, we carry the State by
about a thousand and gain two Congressman,
electing three out. of the lour. The last
Congressional delegation was three Cops to
one Republics :, the tables are turned now
and we have three of the four members.
Ihe Cops have had a troublesome time in
figuring up the returns as the figures did
not suit them at all; they arc still trying to
count up a democratic victory, but facts are
stubborn things, and the Cops are beginning
to despair.
INSURANCE.—The annual Statement of
the Home Insurance Company of New
Ilavtu, iu|jicscuiea Dy o. u. I'isher in
Bedford, and vicinity, will be found in
another column.
The Home is a well managed, first-class
Company, with a paid up cash capital of
one million, and a surplus of six hundred
and twenty-two thousand dollars; having a
well earned reputation for promptness and
fair-dealing and commanding the confidence
of property owners. Call on J. G. Fisher
and insure in the Home, of New Haven.

There will therefore be no opening excur

GOVERNOR. GEARY did two things last

to pardon the Murderer Twitchell and the
second the veto of the bill authorizing the
Executive to commute the death penalty.

State last week.
[From our own CorrcrpondenL]
LETTER FROM HARRISBUKG
HARRISBPRG, Pa., April, 10, ISG9.
THE WEEK
just past has been a very busy Legislative
one. The amount of local legislation that
bas been acted upon is simply enormous.
Bills of all characters and descriptions still con
iinue to be introduced and take their chances
in the general scramble that will ensue during
be few remaining days previous to the close
of the session.
TUE DEATH PENALTY.
During the week a bill was hurried through
both branches of the Legislature authorizing
he Government to commute the death pen
ally to imprisonment for life. The bill was
passed to meet the special cases of Eaton and
Twitchell. The Governor has, however, as
yet refused to sign the bill, and although a
very strong pressure was brought to bear up
on him to the last moment, the execution of
Eaton took place on Thursday while his
friends were still pleading with the Executive
lorhis life. Governor Geary in this case as
sumed a terrible responsibility, although he
doubtless feels mystified in his own mind in
the course he has taken. The sympathies ot
the people were however very strong with the
aruicmuca man, anU .. more earnest effort
was probably never made in this State to se
cure a commutation of a sentence.
THE CATTLE BILL
still forms a prominent topic of speculation.
The chances of its passage have however
quite materially decreased from last week.
The bill passed the Senate some days ago by
a decided majority, and is now in the bands of
the House committee. As yet all efforts to
get it reported have proved unavailing, al
though the ring have employed all the usual
expedients. At a late meeting of the com
mittee the vote is said to have been ten
against the bill to six for it. Those urging
its passage are still unceasing in their efforts
and may yet succeed in pushing it through the
House. The coming week will doubtless fully
develop its fate.
WOMEN AS VOTERS.
During the first part of the session Mr.
llurritt of Susquehanna introduced into the
House a joint resolution proposing an amend
ment to the Constitution allowing females as
well as males over twenty-one years of age to
vote in Pennsylvania. The resolution came
up for action of Thnrsday evening. Mr llur
ritt made an extended and able speech in la
vor of the proposition and was listened to
with close attention. A vote was then had
on agreeing to the resolution and resulted
yeas 20; nays Go. As this is a subject agita
ting the public mind to quite an extent I give
the names of those who voted for the resolu
tion as tollows: Messrs. Ames, Beatty,
Brown (Huntingdon), BuGiugtou, Burritt,
Chamberlain, Clark. (Warren) Fox, Ilerrold,
Hervey, Kerr Kleckoer, McGin.
nis, Marshall, Ilea, Robinson (Mercer),
Webb, Westlake and Wilson—all Republic
ans except McGinnis of Philadelphia.
LYCOMIXG JTOICIAL DISTRICT.
It will be remembered that sonic days since
a bill passed both Houses under a suspension
of the rules, and was signed by the Governor
the same night, repealing the act of last year
erecting Lycoming county into a new Judicial
District. The passage of the bill was procur
ed by fraud and a misrepresentation of the
facts, and within two days thereatter the lien
ale passed a bill repealing the last act. This
last repealing bill still remains in the bands
of the House Committee, and it has transpir
ed that it has there been negatived by a vote
of seven to siij. Mr. McMiller, a Democrat
from Montgomery connty, gave the casting
vote, and thus- deprived a Democratic Judge
of his seat. The affair has occasioned a good
deal of excitement among the members of his
own party, and by his course Mr. McMiller
has subjected himself to au inordinate amonnt
of Democratic abuse.
REGISTRY LAW.
Both branches of the Legislature have pass
ed a general registry law. There is no doubt
of its receiving the approral of the Governor. J
Every reasonable euard is thrown around the
ballot box to preserve its purity, and this law
will doubtless prevent in the future much of .
that fraudulent voting that has been a dis- !
grace to this Commonwealth.
THE GOVERNOR Has VETOED
the bill authorizing the Executive to com- '
mute the death penalty to imprisonment for
life. He asserts that the bill was not in ac
cordance with the law he recommended in |
his last annual message. He simply desired i
the Executive should have authority in six
cases distinctly specified to commute the sen- j
tenceto imprisonment for such term as the
ameliorating circumstances might seem to
justify and demand.
KATE CF INTEREST.
The hill allowing parties to contract lor a
rate of interest at seven per cent has been de
feated in the House. No change will there
fore be made in reference to this matter dur
ing the present session. i
SPEAKER or THE SENATE.
Previous to the adjournment the Republic
an caucas will designate the Speaker for the
Senate during the next session. It is pretty
well understood that this honor will be be
stowed upon Senator C. U. Stinson of Mont
gomery county.
FINAL AIIJOCR.VSIENT.
The Senate have passed a joint resolution
to adjourn finally oil Friday, the ICth day of
April. If the conference committee on the
appropriation bill make an acceptable report
—as it is now probable they will—the Ilonse
will doubtless concur in the resolution.

President Grant havingsigned the Tenure

Message from the President—Restora
tion of States to the l-'nion.
The following is the messago of the Pres
ident sent to Congress on the 7th inst., and
in accordance with which the reconstruction
found in another column was promptly pass
ed.
To the Senate and Howe of Representa
tives :
"While I am aware that the time in which
Congress proposes now to remain in session
is very brief and that it is derircd as far as
is consistent with the public interest to
avoid entering upon the general business of
legislation, there is one subject which con
cerns so deeply the welfare of the country
that I deem it my duty to bring it before
you. I have no doubt that you will concur
with me in the opinion that it is desirable
to restore the States which were engaged in
the rebellion to their proper relations to the
Government, and the country at as early a
period as the people of those States shall be
found willing to become peaceful and orderly
communities, and adopt and maintain such
constitutions and laws as will effectually se
cure the civil and political rights of all per
sons within their borders. The authority
of the United States, which has been vindi
cated and established by its military power,
must undoubtedly be aborted for the abso
lute protection of all the citizens in the full
enjoyment of the freedom and security
which is the object of a Republican govern
ment. But whenever the people of a re
bellious State are ready to enter in good
faith upon the accomplishment of this ob
ject, in entire conformity with the con-titu
tional authority of Congress, it is certainly
desirable that all causes of irritation be re
moved as promptly as possible, that a more
perfect union may be established and the
country be restored to peace and prosperity.
The convention of the people of Virginia,
which met in Richmond, on Tuesday, De
cember 3d, 1867, framed a constitution for
that State which was adopted by the con
vention on the 17th of April, 1808, and I
desire respectfully to call the attention of
Congress to tho propriety of providing by
law for the holding of an election in that
State at some time during the months of
May and June next, under the direction of
the military commander of the district, at
which the question of the adoption of that
constitution shall be submitted to the citi
zens of the State, and if this should seem
desirable, I would recommend that a separ
ate vote be taken upon such parts as may
be thought desirable, and at the same time
and under the same authority there shall be
an election for the officers provided under
such Constitution, and that the Constitu
tion, or such parts thereof a.s shall have
been adopted by the people, be submitted
to Congress on the fust Monday of Decern
ber next, for its consideration, so that if the
same is approved, the necessary steps will
then have been taken for the restoration of
the State of \ irginia to its proper relation
to the Union. lam led to make this rec
ommendation from the confident and I opc
fu! belief that the people of that State arc
now ready to co-operate with the National
Government in bringing it again to such
relations to the Union as it ought, as soon
as possible, to estah'ish and maintain, and
to give all its people those equal rights tin
der the laws which were asserted in the
Declaration of Independence in the words
of one of the most illustrious of its son-'. I
desire also to ask the consideration of Con
gress to the question whether there is not
just ground for believing that the Con=titu
tion formed by a convention of the people
of Mississippi for that State, and once to
jected, might not be again submitted to tin
people of that Slate in like manner, and
with the probability of the same result]

Cuba, in conjunction with Gcuetal SteaJ
man. lie is admirably adapted for that
duty, and will succeed, as he always has,
much better with the sword than with the
pen.
MINISTERIAL APPOINTMENTS. —It is now
definitely settled that Hon. ,J. Lothrop
Motley will go to England, Governor Cur
tin to Ru—ia, and General Sickles to >1 txlco.
Governor Geary is pressing L oiis \Y. Hull
for a resident mission with all his .-tr< ngtb.
Mr. Watts will be relieved from Vienna.
Mr. Sanford will stay nt Brussels, Mr.
Dudley as consul at Liverpool and Mr.
Marsh as minister to Italy.
A LIVELY LITTLE PLACE —Helena,
Montana Territory, is a lively plat- . The
elite of tka 14,000 inhabitants live generally
iti the dance houses, grog shops, and gamb
ling dens. In the largest saloon there are
twenty three tables, upon which piles of
gold dust arc staked without cessation, day
or night. Ahout a dozen men vi-it this
place in the cour.-e of twenty four hours,
every one having a lino lookingpi-tol buckled
to his side, only u-ed when it becomes aetu
ally necessary to shoot a friend.
ANTI-TOBACCO. —Tin Providence (R.
I. ) Conference of the Methodist Episcopal
Church has adopted the following rule:
"No candidate for member-hip in this con
ference shall ba deemed eligible until lie
shall have unequivocally and frankly af
firmed his abstinence from the use of to
bacco during so much of-the time of his
trial for membership as shall succeed the
passage of this rub', nor until he shall
have pledfeed him-elf in the future 10 ab
stain from its use, except for medical pur
poses. '' *
THE Pacific Railway controversy has bet n
adjusted, at least for the present. Under
the failure of the two roads to agree upon
some point for meeting, Congress proceeded
to fix that point atOgden, and order d that
bonds should be withheld from each Com
pany, for a sufficient mileage on cither side
of that point to ensure the completion by
each of a first-class road. The two Com
panies then cam? to an immediate agree
ment as to the disputed details—and will
hereafter be allied in the common cause
against the Treasury.
No organization has yet be. n effected in
the Indiana Legislature, the newly elected
opposition members persisting in "their de
mand for inadmi-sable concessions from the
majority. The Democracy have not been
encouraged bv the success of their recent
appeal to the people. The bolters have
been re-elected by largely diminished votes,
in some cases being opposed by independent
candidates of th-ir own party. If our
friends arc tenacious of their position, a sec
ond Democratic bolt is improbable, and if
attempted would be disastrous to them.
The people won't stand nonsense forever.
CONFIDENCE is universally felt that the
reconstruction of Virginia, Texas and
Mississippi will be completed, by their re
-pec-rive ( lections, at an early date, under
the law of last week, and by the Congres
sional approval in P comber. Under the
power conferred upon the President, each
of their C nstitutions will be submitted to
separate votes upon their controverted sec
tions—the effect of which will be to secure
the adoption of the main body of each in
strument. ly the people, and the transfer
of all questions concerning disfranchisement
to Congress for a final settlement.
DISASTER AT BRA. —(In March 2nth, an
English four-masted screw steamer, the Ital
ian, 1,500 tons burthen, running between
Trieste and L-o.pool, struck ou a sunken
rock, five mil • ff Capo Finisterre, and
sunk in ten minutes. The Italian had a
crew of thirty-nine men and three passen
gers on board. Only thirteen wore saved,
being picked up floating on spars in the
water, and clinging to tin bottoms of the
two life-boats which capsized a.s the steamer
went down. The body ol one man. with
his head under water, wa* found in a life
boat. The steamer had five hatchways,
and the water poured down the fourth and
fifth abaft the engines.
Tin: Emperor of Russia, who at first was
exceedingly angry with the young Prince of
Leuchtenberg, his nephew, for running away
with the pre'ty M ile Opetehinin ■ and mar
rying her in Italy, has yield'd to the solici
tations of the Eatpregf ami permitted the
I'rioce to return with his hritle to St. Peters
burg. They will arrive iu April, and the
young Prince will he treated with all the
honors usually paid only to the Princesses of
royal blood. She has a sweet, childlike face,
long, golden ringlets, and a pair of large
dreamy blue eyes, sings like a nightingale,
and is very graceful in all her movements :
hut she was so poor that before she eloped
with the wayward young Prince her be
trothed had to buy her a complete traveling
outfit.
AN OLD SILVER MINE.— The Cumber
land Civilian says: We are informed by a
friend from the western part of tb county
that a short time -inee an opening was
discovered in the ground ncai' cramwrry
Summit, which, on being enlarged and
cleared up, proved to be the entrance to an
old mine, in which were discovered several
old English tools. On one of the timber
supports of the roof cf the mine was found
inscribed "1 >08." A further investigation
led to the discovery that it was a silver
mine, which had at one time be n worked.
WO were shewn a specimen of the quarts:
taken from the mine, and grid judges
pronounce it rich in silver. Specimens
have been sent to Philadelphia for assay,
but wc have not learned the probable yield.
SPANISH Taoors IN CUBA. —The troops
that Spain is now sending out to Cuba are
not regular soldiers, but some sort of volnn
tscrs raised among the worst elements of
the Spanish cities. A body of these men
were brought recently from Cadiz, where
they were waiting to embark for Havana, to
put down an insurrection at Xerez, and an
eye witness testifies that they committed the
most barbarous atrocities. "Many of the
officers were drunk," says the writer, "and
yet they urged on their men. Defenseless
people were cut down, houses were pillaged,
and women slaughtered. Two women were
thrown Into wells, and horrible outrages
were committed upon children." This is
the kind of assassins witli which the patri
ots of Cuba have to contend.
THE DEATH OF MR. CUNARD.—The New
York Sun, in recording the sadden death
of Sir Edward CunarJ, in that city, on
Tuesday, says he was born in Halifax in
1816. and adds : "The line of mail steam,
era with which the name Cunard is so famil
iarly connected was started by the lather o-
Mr. Cunard in 1840, at whose death, in 18fi5f
Edward inherited both the title and the
business. He had previously managed all
its affairs on this side of the Atlantic. The
line was started with lour vessels subsidized
by the British Government, but > success
ful did the enterprise prove that from time
to time other lines were .also started by the
company, und now they have twenty-five
vessels on the Mediterranean sea, on the
Atlantic and elsewhere. The Canards,
father and son, preferred safety to speed in
their vessels, and hence they always enjoyed
the public confidence which they hold even
to this day."
MB. SPCRQBON, at the ia.-.t annual meet
ing of the friends ot his College, related
that on a reeent occasion some unknown
friend dropped hank notes to the amount
of £2,000 into his letter box at Clapbatn,
which were found nest morning "lying on
hi oil-cloth. ' "The reckless generosity of
this act," says the Pall Mall Gazette, "al
most leads to the conclusion that the donor
tad been dining out in the rieiehboihocd,
md was acting under the influence of the
lospitality for which Ciaphatn is pro
rerbial. Under any circumstances, he
Jjould bo more careful in future when dis
pensing bis cFarity, for though ho has been
ir-trumental in demonstrating the probity
<f Mr. Spurgeon's housemaid, be was un
questionably an occasion of temptation to
hat good young woman; and, moreover,
he world would never have known but for
iim that the reTcrend gentleman's letter
iox needed repair."
SCRIPTCBAI. Muxosn.LABI.EH.— To one
whose attention has not been drawn partic
ularly to the subject, it will be (surprising
to call to mind how many of the most sub
lime and comprehensive pas-ages in the
English language consist wholly or chiefly
of monosyllables. Of the sixty six words
composing the Lord's prayer, forty-eight
are of one syllable. Of the seventeen words
composing the Golden Rule, fifteen are of
ono syllable. The most expressive idea of
thccrratire power of Jehovah is expressed
entirely in monosyllables: "And God said,
let there be light, and there Was light."
One of the most encouraging promises of
Scripture is expressed in fifteen word.--, all
but one of which are monosy tables: "I love
them that love me—and those that seek tne
early shall find me."
BISMARCK'S FAMlLY.— Bismarck has DE
cided that bis sons shall not enter the diplo
matic career. The reason of this decision,
it is thought, is the conviction he has
reached that the youths are not peculiarly
gifted. His daughter posesses by far more
ability than her brothers, and during her
mother's recent illness officiated as the
Count's private secretary. liis wife gener
ally performs that duty.
GEORGlA. —Speaking of the crops, the
Savannah Republican says that while it is
difficult to form a correct idea at this early
day, yet experienced farmers pronounce the
crops at this season oft he year better than
they have ever known them, especially corn.
The cotton lands are reproofed as being iti
goo i condition, and ready for the seed.
I'LAKCfIETTE AS A DxTErTiVK.—The New
\ork police use l'lanehette almost entirely
in detecting rogues of all descriptions, and
employ females from the Five Points to op
erate the machine. These women know the
haunts and the exploits of all the burglars
and thieves in the city, and, under the mani
pulation of the shrewd detective-, let their
knowledge unconsciously slip through'Jbe
ends of their fingers.
Victory for the I nsurgent *--\Yrcck of a
Urig--Itioting in Havana.
HAVANA, April 11.— It is reported that a
column under General La-cia, while acting
as a convoy from Santa Cruz to Puerto
Principe, was routed by the rebels under
Qu' -ado and the convoy captured. The
losses on both sides were immense.
Intelligence has been received that the
Bremen bug Germania, from New York,
bound to Vera Cruz, was wrecked on the
Bahamas. The captain and crew were
saved.
Lust night there were farther dieturbaaoe*
in the streets of Havana, arid several per
nios were killed. To-night, however, the
city is tranquil.

CATHARTIC PILLS,
FOR ALL THE PURPOSES OF A LAXATIVE
MEDICINE.
Perhaps Bo one medicine is so universally re
quired by everybody as a cathartic, nos- was :
ever any before so universally adopted into use,
in every or.untry and among ait classes, as this
mild but eflicient purgative Pill. The obvious
reason is, that it is a tuore reliable and far more
effectual remedy than any other. Those who have
used it, know that it cured thein: those who have
not, know that it cures their neighbors and friends,
and ail know that what it does once it does al
ways--thit it never fails through any fault or
neglect of its composition. We have thousands
upon thousands of certificates of tbeir remarkable
cures of the following ecu,plaints, but such cures
are known in every neighborhood, and we need
not publish them Adapted to all ages and con
ditions in ail climates; containing neither calomel
nor any deleterious drug, they may be taken with
safety by anybody. Tb ir sugar coating preserves
them ever fresh and snakes thein pleasant to take
while being purely vegetable no harm can arise
from their use in any quantity.
Tbcy operate by thctr powerful influence on (be
internal viscera to purify the blood and stimulate
it into healthy action—remove the obstructions
of the stomach, bowels, liver, and other organs of
the body, restoring their irregular action to
her.ilh, and by correcting, wherever they exist,
uch derangements as arv the first origin of du
sase.
Minute direction* are given in the wrapper on
the box, for the following complaints, which these
Pills rapidly euro:
For Dytprptia or Indigestion, Li*tle**ut*a, Lan
tfuor and Lot* of Appetite. they should Ve taken
moderately to stimulate the stomach and re?'ore
its healthy tone and action.
F'ur Liter Complaint and its various sy/nptoms,
Tlifou* Iltodn' /., Si, ;- fUadaehe, Jo',indict or
lirteu Sietne**, liC.dic and Bdioue Fen re,
they should be judiciously taken for each ease, to
correct the diseased action or remove the obstruc
tions which cause it
For Dy*entcry or Diarrhtx, but one mild dose
is generally required.
For Rheumatism, Cant, Gracel, Palpitation of
the Jit art, Pain in the Side, Pack and Loin*, they
should be continuously takeu, as required, to
change the diseased action or ura s/ws,. win,
such change the.-e complaints disappear.
For Drop,'j and Dropsical Selling* they should
be taken iu largo and frequent doses to produce
the effect of a drastic purge.
For Saf>pre**ion* a large dose should betaken
as it produces the desired effect by sympathy.
As a Dinner Pill, take one or "two Pills to pro
mote digestion and relieve the stomach.
An occasional dose stimulates the stomach and
bowels into bcaltbv action, restores the appetite,
and invigorates the system. Hence it is often ad
vantageous where no serious derangement exists.
One who feels tolerably well, often finds that a
dose of these pills ftiakes hiui feel decidedly bet
ter, from tbeir cleansing and renovating efl'ect on
the digestive apparatus.
