!ltc $otmnFuw, ai:uumt it. Moottr., kihtoiu JU.OOM811U110, HAT,WMAY,.AUnrBT I, im. NEW STATES. CoNonr.ss adjourned on Saturday, tho twenty-eighth ultimo, ufterasosslon of eight months duration. -Anion; tho last bills passed was ono for thu admis sion of Nebraska as a Stuto Into tho Union, which remains In tho President's hands unsigned. Tho wuno objections appear to apply to It which applied to tho vetoed Mil for tho admission of Col orado, principal among which is u dell eicnt population. Strangely enough the Colorado veto was not considered before the adjourn ment. Although tho bill was vetoed two or three months ago, it was permit ted to Ho without action in Congress, because, as wo supposo, a two thirds vote could not bo obtained for passing it over tho veto. This manufacturing of now States for nnllllnil mirposos only does not bcem to prosper under Andrew John son, and it is well to havo tho doctrine established that new States shall not bo rushed into tho Union prematurely and irregularly, to subserve tho purposes of agitators and of those who desire to ob tain office. It is not pretended mat ic brasku has morothan sixty thousand In habitants, which Is only half tho uuiu her necessary to a Member of Congress in tho old States; but it Is nioro proua bio that tho number of inhabitants does not exceed forty or fifty thousand. The number in Colorado Is still less. Tho people of such States as New York, Pennsylvania, and Ohio tiro under particular obligations to tho President for arresting tho Improper creation of now States of small population to bo equal to them in power and Influence in tho United States Senate. It isaremarkablocircumstancothatin tho cases of both Colorado and Nebraska tho fairness of tho election upon adopt ing n constitution Is strongly impeach ed. A majority for tho new Stato con Htitution of only one hundred is re ported in Nebraska, and for tho new constitution In Colorado of only about ono hundred and fifty ; nnd in both rases Btrong charges of dishonesty nnd illegal ity aro made; and it appears probable that in neither caso was there a majority of the people In favor of forming a now State. OUR CONTEMPORARY. Tun Columbia County Republican for tho last two weeks has been swimming over with slang, which its conductor seems to think may pass for smartness, ' lmt which men of senso will regard as merest drivel. Wo must beg our readers to excuse tho fow words wo devototo It. The editor of tho Republican cannot for tho life of him let alono tho subject of his disgraceful exit from tho Asses sorship, which was accompanied by all tho circumstances that would make au honorable man cringe and bo silent. One of his latest performances in wast ing time has been to dress up the." Mod el Letter" in a new form to issuo a now edition in which tho original text is almost covered up by the new matter added, which agrees about as well with tho original as a comment by Thomas Paino would with tho Holy Scripture. Another small perfprmanco by tho ".extinguished Assessor" has been to publish an old letter, written by Mr. Clark in his favor, as a sot-off to his own " Model Letter" to tho Secretary of tho Treasury. Tills shallow artifico can'hardly deserve much notice. Mr. Clark under importunity, and with an important fact misrepresented to him, wroto n letter in favor of his present enemy, in January, 1 80.1, ono year and a half heforo his own appointment. How this fact can bo pleaded in excuso of P. John's eplstlo proposing to " tri umphantly sustain tho Administration" if ho should bo continued in ofHco does not appear. Tho two things aro as un- liko in character as light and darkness : tho ono nmiablo and innocent, the other baso and disgraceful. Thero nro a number of small false' hoods in tho Republican which we dis daln to notice, as wo havo disdained to notico many similar ones before. These relato to this Journal and to gentlemen who aro friendly to it. It Is a low of tho Republican to pretend to quote remark of persons to whom it is tin friondly which havo no foundation In fact, but aro manufactured for f ho oc casion. "What Mr. Tracy is alleged to havo said of Mr. Clark, and whut Mr. Clark is alleged to havo said of sundry persons and subjects, etc., aro of this character, and can mislead no ono wlio comprehends tho principles upon whicl jtho Republican is conducted. STARTLING DISCLOSURES. The following Is a portion of a letter written by Hon. Henry J. Raymond, Member of Congress from Now York, V It, will command attention from tho btartling nature of Its disclosures. You may havo noticed tho passago In tho House, a fow days siuco, of a resolu tion offered by General Payno, of Wis- luiiaiu, viuuiii; oil rli omita iu olgllJlIZO, discipline, and equip their militia, nnd directing that two thirds of tho arms. ordinance, and umunltion now under custody of tho General Government bo distributed among the Mates tho dis tribution among tho loytd States to take placo immediately, and that among tho States lately In rebellion to bo postponed till furthcrorders. Tho resolution eaiuo irom tiiecomniittoaon Military Alluirs, and was pushed to a vote, without do nate or neiay, uiuior tno previous que lion, j i attracted as little attention in Congress as It has In tho country, and tho public will doubtless receive with incredulity tho assuranco that it was In tended by thoso who secured its passago another civil war. Although no debate was had upon It, members wero urged tovoto for It by direct conversational appeals on tho floor on tho part of the fuw who woiu nrlvvto Its introduction. Homo wero told that It was necessary to enable the (southern loyulUa to protect themselves! others, that It was simply a matter of detail in tho, Wur Depart ment; other, tnat tno arms must do taken out ofthohandsof tho President , and others, that 11 was proposed at tho Instance of tho Secretary of War. An appeal was made by Mr. Kasson, of Iowa, to allow di b do upon it, as It seem ed to bo a matter of Importance, but this was refused. it Is ".tho determination to nrouso tho North, and prepare for a resort to force upon tho assembling of tho For tieth ConcrrfKM In extra or In reirular session ; MuUhlsdctermlualion Isavowed. Aim tno resolution to wnicn i navo re ferred, for an organization of tho militia and a distribution of arms in the North ern Slates, Is tho Initial step to its exe cution." I do not propo?o to conimont upon thn result of .mii h a movement. It Is obvious that If any such contingency should arise, tho war would not bo sec- llonai, as was tno last; u wouiu uu a war or political parties una oi neighbor hoods. Not only hnvo tho great body of tho Union party in Congress no sym pathy with these views and purposes, hut they aro In tho main icnorant and Incredulous of their existence. That tho extreme Radicals entertain them, nu uvur, wiciu is nut iiiuniiKniunniwuiii, and wo know, from tho experience of secession in ifcui, now jew men u some times requires w piunge a great, pun or (( ijreat nation into war. In tills counctiou wo publish tho fol lowing letters: Naniivillr, Tknx., July II, VM. Lieutenaul-O'encral Grant, Washington: Some of (ho members of tho lloiiso of Representatives of tho Tennessee Gene ral Assembly conduct themselves in a very refractory manner, absenting them selves to prevent a quorum, thus ob structing business.

WASHINGTON LETTER. W.tsillNnTON, I). C, August 2, 1S00. Tin; closo of tho session of Congress presents a varied and interesting scene. Many bills aro hurried through, spicy remarks aro made, and personal expla nations arc replied to with good-humor or invective. Tho Tennessee delegation were, after along delay, admitted, with tho sanction of many who had been opposed to their admission. Mr. Doollttlo's last able speech commanded earnest attention, and your own Senator, Mr. Uuckalow, Is conceded, even by thoo who nro op posed to him politically, to havo as much influenco as any ono in tho Sen ate. He was alluded to on tho lasa day as the Senator whoso coolness wils al ways undisturbed, even when discus sion was warmest a rare virtue) In a Senator, and a proof that the interests of tlio great State or Pennsylvania ore confided to able hands not likely to lie swayed by prejudlco or party faction. An incident occurred on 1' riday which proves tno readiness and tact ot me President. A New Hampshire delega tion waited on him in relation to tlio appointment of District Judge in that State. After considerable discussion the President remarked: "I see, gentle men, you cannot agree, and I will ap point Senator Clark on his own merits." Tho Senator at onco resigned, and his nomination was confirmed the sanio evening, and will no doubt bo acceptable to tlio majority in his own State. An animated debate took place in both Houses on' tho resolution to em ploy Miss Ninnlo Ileum to make a statue of Mr. Lincoln. Her plaster busts havo been much commended as good likenesses, Jinil an appropriation of ten thousand dollars was made that sho might perform tho work. Her youthful features and persuasive elo quence wero certainly very successful in moulding tho opinions of Senators and Members to her wishes. It is also a proof that If not voters, and hardly ac corded tho nunio of citi.ens, women havo n powerful influenco in tho great law-making factory of tho Republic. Tlio inten&u heat which has played unknown pranks with tho high figures of tho thermometer, and never before so prostrating, has been nllcvlated by the supply of water from tho aqueduct abundantly used in watering tho streets. Washington was never more hculthy than at present. An earnest desire is felt to havo a ark worthy of the city and Capital of tho nation. Ono embrac ing tho delightful retreat of-Harewood, where so many of our soldiers enjoyed its healing breezes, or wandered in its uengiitiui groves, admiring tho noble forest trees, would bo an attractive and hallowed spot. Its immediate vicinity to tho Soldier's Home, tlio Summer residence of tho lato President, with tho elevated land around, present natu ral attractions unsurpassed in any city of tlio Union. ji. NATIONAL UNION CONVEN TION IN INDIANOPOLIS. A Joliuson National Union Conveiv tion met in lndianopolis, Indiana, on the eighteenth instant. Only those who supported Lincoln and Johnson's policy in 1801, and now support Johnson's res toration policy, wero allowed to partici pate. General Sol. Meredith presided. Delegates to tho IMiiliurolphia Convcn tiou wero appointed. A series of rcso lutions wore adopled. Tlio first express ed ardent attachment to tho Union or tho States under tho Constitution, denies tlio right of secession, holds all attempts null nnd void, declares all tho States now States of this Union as before tho Rebellion, denies tho power of tlio Gen oral Government to exclude a State from the Union, or govern it us a Territory The second declares confidence In Presi dent Johnson undiminished, approves the general policy ofhis Administration, endorses his restoration policy as wise, patriotic, and constitutional, in harmo ny with thu loyal sentiment and purpose of tho people on tho suppression of tho Rebellion, with tho platform on which ho was elected, and with tlio declared policy of tho late President. Tho third asserts thai under tho Constitution tlio right to prescribe tho qualifications of electors is reserved to tho States, and it would bo subversive of tho principles. of our Governmeiu for Congress to force universal suffrage upon any part of tho country In opposition to the wishes or tho citizens thereof. Fourth, all tho States aro entitled to representation, all loyal members duly elected- should bo admitted to Congress without unnecessa ry delay, each House Judging tlio quail Mentions of its members. Fifth, tlio payment of tho National debt is a sacred obligation, nover to bo repudiated, and no .debt whatever Incurred In aid of treason and rebellion shall over bo paid. Sixth, tlio nation owes a lasting debt of gratitudo to our Midlers and sailors Tho families of tho fallen heroes should bo cured for by tin! Government. It en dorses tho President's determination to give tho olllccs- to soldiers. Seventh, tno delegates to tho Philadelphia Con vontioii aro expected to co-operate only with loyal Union men. Op eighty persons who took supper nt tho Pylo House, Ip Indianapolis, Ind., on Saturday evening last, sixty wero poisoned. It is supposed tlio poison wus contained in tho milk, as a family of eight persons, who ulso receive milk from tlio sumo dealer who supplies tlio hotel, wero similarly uttuckul, None of thojo attacked havo died.

Tho President not being ready, at this stage of tho proceedings, to report to tho meeting his selection or delegates, Captain Rrockway was called out, and responded In a neat little speech, which was greeted with rounds of applause; after which tiio President announced to tho meeting that ho had, upon examln ing tiio list of thoso presentmado the following selection ns delegates to tho Harrisburg Convention : Colonel W.

Thank God, Congress has ndjourned and, as a consequence, tho true National Union men or tho country will now hav an opportunity to turn their attention to tlio reconstruction or the two Houses Prominent among tho questions that will come before tho people of Ponnsyl vania is tlio selection of a United Slates Senator, to supply the vacancy that will occur at the close of the present Congress, by the expiration or tho term or Hon Kdgar Cowan. Several aspirants are lioAiro tho pub lie fiir this position, and, as a matter of course, candidates for tlio Legislature of our Stato will bo nominated with a di rect reiereuce to this question. Seeking tlio support of tho Radical wing of tho next Legislature there aro Messrs. Came ron, Curtln, Stevens, Policy, and Forney tho latter being understood as simply bob-tail to Cameron's kite, with tho purposoto hold, if possible, tho unadul terated nigger vote that may bo found in tlio Legislature, and play it into Cameron's hands. Tho only Conserva' tlvo candidate now spoken of Is Mr, Cowan, but tho probabilities aro that, when tho canvass shall bo fully opened other gentlemen who sustain heartily and cordially tho restoration measures of the President and his Cabinet will bo brought forward. There Is no doubt of tho ability of tho Conservative men of tho Stato to control this question. In our own city National Union candidates for tlio Legislature will bo iluecd in tlio field with Immediate reference to it, pledged only, as we presume, to so act und vote in the Legislature as to sustain tlio President and his policy. Thosanio course will bo adopted and pursued in tho other legislative districts of the State, uud it requires no great skill to determine tiio fact that, with proper management on tlio part of tho friends of tho Administration, thero will bo re turned to tho next Legislature a liand somo working majority against tho revolutionists. To produco this result thero must bo unlonand harmony among all those who disapprove of the course of the Congress which has Just adjourned; and tho opportunity will bo given to such as havo hitherto uctcd with the Democratic party to test and display tho depth of their patriotism by supporting for this high office only such a man us can ho relied on to perform its respon sible duties with marked success. Differences of opinion as to men must bo set aside, nnd tlio only question that should bo allowed a consideration Is that or political fitness, having reference ex clusively to all tho absorbing Issues which aro now distracting thu country, uud which.again threaten tho disrup tion of thu Government. When great and coinniandlng questions aro Involv ed, men nro hut us atoms that float in their air, and only in so far us they rep resent principles which overtop every thing olse, uud possess the ability to sus tain them, nro they to boat all consider ed. Tho next Senator of tho United States from Pennsylvania must boullrm, devoted, uud unflinching Mipporter of tho Government nnd tho Constitution on which It rests, and with prudence, well backed by energy, skill, and industry, such u man eon and will ho chosen.
