In the House Mr. Butler said In the beginning of this Congress he had announced an inten tion to investigate the course of Mr. Schenck in reference to certain Btfiries he bad heard.

President Grant says of the Fifteenth Amendment: it looks to me as the real ization of the Declaration ot Independence. Pan Voorhees' speech is to be published in country Democratic papers at the rate of half an acre per week. Complete returns from the Rhode Island election show a Republican minority of 3,016. Mr. Voorhees declares that lie does not want negro votes. Those grapes hang quite high, else they might be sweeter. The vote, both clerical and lay, of the New York East Methodist Conferenee Is largely for lay delegation. The gorgeous Golladay is not to be return ed to Congress from Kentucky. Joseph H. Lewis has been nominated in his place. The Stanton memorial fund, now on de posit, and drawing Interest for the family of the late E. M. Stanton, amounts to fl46, .000.

A temperance ticket was elected in Mar ion on the 4th Inst., and the liquor traffic is about to be closed out in that village. Rev, KPrris A. Tyng, one of the eminent Tyng family, has been ordained a presbyter and has become a professor of biblical liter erature at the Gambler Seminary. Mrs. Solomon Haley, of Spricgfleld, whose husband died of hydrophobia on the 22d OIL, is dangerously ill with the same dis ease. It is supposed that in her constant at tendance upon her husband she received some of the virus in her veins in handling the bed clothes.

Peck, in the Toledo Congressional District is 2,787. This is doing very well for a District which gave a majority of 9 1 ? for the Democratic nominee in 1868Y Ben. Butlgr has publicly recanted and apologised for the charges he made ;onie time since against the official character of General Schenck. And now that his charges are so summarily done for we wonder what they were begun for. The Joint Committee on Retrench ment have discoyered that some of the contracts for mail service in Texas, made by the late Postmaster General Randall just previous to his going out of office, unnecessarily increased the pay of mail .contractors several hundred thousand ZoVaxs. This is another legacy of the Johnson administration. The Committee Jhope that some of the contracts may yet, be annulled. Coates Kinney has returned to his old flame, the Xenia Torchlight, and we may say the Torch has returned to its old flame likewise. Messrs. Armstrong and Milburnare Mr. Kinney's associates, as of yore, and we shall be greatly mis taken if in the hands of the new manage ment the Torch does not prove to be one of the brightest lights in Ohio jour nalism. It scintillates already like a shag-bark flambeau. A REFORMATORY HOME. That it is the will of the people of Ohio, irrespective of party, that the State should provide a respectable and com fortable home for the support and edu cation of destitute soldiers orphans, there can be no sort of doubt. That the great State of Ohio is abundantly able to provide such a home, is equally cer tain. That the State has discharged that duty as it should have done, we are not quite so sure. A bill has passed both branches of the Legislature which proposes to dispose of the orphans by making room for them in the State Reformatory for refractory and abandoned girls. We do not be lieve this will be a good thing either for the girls or the orphans. We doubt very much whether it will be the best thing for this county, and very gravely suspect a secret purpose in the project to break down the Girls' Reformatory with a view to its removal. One thing may be con sidered certain : the vicious and the in nocent will not thrive together. The purposes of a reformatory and an or phans' home are not congenial. Besides, the same influences which sought with so much persistency to prevent the loca tion of the Girl's Reformatory in this county, have been equally zealous to give us the Orphans Home. The latter is a temporary institution, the former a permanent one. The Home will have to compete with another similar institu tiou more eligibly located, already in operation, and not adjunctive to a re formatory for the vicious and abandon ed. The idea that the children of our dead soldiers are to be thrust into an institution for the reformation of the depraved, is a shame and a disgrace that should cause the cheek of every patriotic citizen to blush. And yet that is exactly what is to be done or else. the Girls Reformatory is to be removed. We do not believe White Sulphnr is a good place for the orphans. On the other hand it is a good place for the Reformatory. Its very isolation, which disqualifies it for the one, adapts it for the other. The one class needs isolation; the other does not. We know it is asserted that the Re formatory is a failure. On the other hand, the trustees, who ought to know, say it is not, and are greatly pleased with its success, both present and prospective. They confidently assert that before an other year closes, there will be a hun dred inmates in the institution, if it is let alone. They are equally positive that it is doing great good. In some States similar institutions are already in successful operation ; others are just starting them. The one in Ohio has not yet had a fair trial. Nor can it have under this proposed arrangement. We expect soon to hear the outcry that it has failed from the very source from which. if it does fail, its failure will come. And if it succeeds when crowded to the wall, as it will be, by another wholly different institution, we shall be very agreeably disappointed. LAW A Sit IKllOH. Legislation has become one of the in dustries of this country. Laws, scarcely less than com and cotton, are a staple product. In their making and un making we employ thirty-eight large deliberative assemblies a considerable part of every year. We look for the annual product of statutes with nearly the same exigence, and quite as much certainty, of expectation as we do for the annual crop of wheat or potatoes. The fact is we have cultivated a sort of dependence upon legislation which in some respects has been carried to ex tremes. It is the cure-all ol societv, the standard elixir for the ills of the body politic. For all the disorders of the so cial or political corporality we consult the law-makers quite as habitually as we do our physicians in reference to the derangements of the physical one. When trade is dull and times are hard we say the laws are bad ; we must leg islate prosperity. When some moral ulcer fastens itself on the social system the cry is to apply the legislative scalpel. When some upas growth exhales its poison in the political or social atmos phere we look immediately to legal re straint for its suppression. And when any great reform is to be undertaken. nine chances to ten we will make the lobby our base of operations instead of the public forum. We believe this last has been particu larly and too much the case with the temperance reform.; Not that laws have not aided it or been efficient instrumen talities in its favor, but that we have cul tivated a too great reliance upon them. The enforcing power of all legislation is public opinion. Without that to vitalize and inform it, every law, however string ent, relating to social questions, will be practically a nullity. Of this temperance legislation affords a striking illustration. When Chief Justice Marshall rendered his decision making valid the treaty of the United States with the Cherokees, President Jackson tauntingly said, "now Marshall has made his decision, let him enforce it J" Just so have the friends of temperance been taunted in reference to the laws against dram-selling. ' When that traffic has been outlawed its friends have confidently and scoffingly rested in the feebleness or pliableness of public opinion. And the main point we now wish to present is, that this very feeble ness and ineffectiveness of temperance sentiment and the consequent immunity of those who violate temperance laws is owing to the fact that public opinion has been relieved of its responsibility in the matter. That responsibility has been it si large measure taken from the people and placed tipon the shoulders of judges, juries, lawyers and 'law-makers. We would have it it thrown back upon the people and remain there. We would hold public sentiment directly responsi ble for this traffic, assured that this would be ths most efficient way to create public sentiment against if. We would not have it said when dram-selijng es capes arraignment and punishment that the judges, juries, lawyers and law makers are to blame. We would have that responsibility rest directly upon the shoulders of the voters, and nowhere else. ' - . : We are therefore in favor of commit ting the entire control of this traffic into the hands of the people. We would give every township and corporation absolute and unqualified power to regu late and control it as it sees fit. If they choose to prohibit it. let them prohibit it. If they choose to license it, let them license it. If they choose to establish free whiskey, let them establish it. But let the matter be determined by a popular vote, and then let us have no other legislation than is necessary to ex ecute the will of the people legally ex pressed. We firmly believe there are many townships in the State where the traffic is carried on with impunity under the present inefficient legislation, in which it would be speedily and absolutely pro hibited if the matter could be left to popular choice. We believe the number of such townships would rapidly increase under such regimen. We believe there are no communities where the traffic could not be restrained quite as efficient ly under such a system as it is now, and few where it would not be more so. At all events if it was tolerated or privileged we would know where to place the re soonsibilitv. Public sentiment would then be to blame and with it those who make public sentiment. As it is now we lay the reproach upon the law t and the voter's conscience rests easy. He knows that with ever so stringent an enforce ment of the law as it now is many of those who violate it can escape punish ment. Consequently no direct issue can be made in the elections on the temper ance question. But let the whole re sponsibility rest with the voters as to whether the traffic shall be prohibited or tolerated and the case will be essentially different. Those who have the arbitra ment of the question can then be direct ly appealed to and the friends of tem perance can work with some effect. The issue can be squarely made and the people, and even the politicians will be compelled to take sides. The most mischievous obstacle to any reform is a device which relieves the people of their responsibility in regard to it. DEATH OF BISHOP KI9GSLBY. The Methodist Church has scarcely yet recovered from the startling intelli gence of Bishop Thomson's death ; and it is again called upon to mourn the rav ages of the destroyer in the death of Ijishop Kmgsley. A telegraphic dis patch received on baturday trom Dr. Bannister of the Garrett Biblical Institute, now in Beirut, Syria, states that Bishop Kingsley died there suddenly of heart I disease, while on his way to visit the Mission ot Bulgaria. He was returning homeward from an episcopal tour through India and China, and had nearly completed the circumnavigation of the globe. He left his home in Ohio, about the last of May, 1869, and presided over the western conferences in Colorado, California, Oregon and Nevada, and set sail across the Pacific some time in Sep tember. Calvin Kingsley was born in Ames ville, Onedia count-, New York, Sep tember 8, 1812. His parents were not at that time members of any church, but their leanings were, as the name of their son would indicate, toward Galvanism. In his fourteenth year his parents re moved to Chatauqua county, in the same State, when the country was new and the settlers subjected to the hardships of trontier lite. Here, lor the hrst time, he heard Methodist preaching. New views of religion were opened to his soul, new truths fixed themselves in his heart; and, after mature deliberation, he re solved to be a Christian in a higher sense than he had ever before known. Immediately upon his conversion, though with much trembling and exceed ing diffidence, he proposed to conduct daily worship in his father's family. In this duty he persevered and it was not long before he saw both his parents con verted and rejoicing in the Lord. It was his great desire to get an education, but difficulties surrounded him on every side. His father had not the means to send him to college; and, besides that, needed his services on the farm. A school dis trict was, however, organized in the neighborhood, and here he obtained the rudiments of knowledge by attending school three winters. He worked a sugar camp on shares, and the money he obtained in this way he spent for books. He afterward taught school, and entered Alleghany College in 1836, with only $20 in his pocket. Many stories are told of his rustic attire when he made his first appearance at college. He had on a boy s roundabout, low cowskin shoes, blue stockings and short panta loons; but if any of the students were disposed to laugh at his uncouth attire, they soon found out that beneath that ex terior was an aspiring soul. His pro gress was so great that he had not been in college more than three terms when he was appointed tutor in mathematics. He supported himself by doing chores in term time, and by leaving to teach school at two different periods, mean time keeping up with his class in their studies. In 1S41 he was graduated, and the same year was elected Professor of Math ematics in Alleghany College. During this year he married Miss Delia Scudder, who still survives. He was licensed to preach in 1837, and in I841 he joined the Erie Conference, of which he con tinued a member until his election as Bishop. While Professor, his labors were abundant, as he had to hear his classes all the week, and preach every Sunday in addition. In 1843 he acted as finan cial agent for the college ; the next two years he was pastor of the church at Erie, and in 1846 he resumed his position as Professor. In this relation he continued to serve the church ten years, when at the Indianapolis General Conference of 1856, he was elected editor of the West em Chrtstian Advocate of this city, in which office he remained eight years. In 1864 he was made Bishop of the church. Cincinnati Gaze tie. . 1SEW ADVERTISEMENTS. LETTER LIST.

Office of FISK & IIJA T C II BACKERS' and Dealers In GOTEHSMEST SECI RITIES, No. s Nassau Stkbkt, New Yokk, February 15th, 1870. The remarkable success which attended our negotiation of the Loans of the Cen trax. Pacific Raii,boad Company and the Western Pacific Railroad Company, and the popularity arrtl credit which these Loans have maintained in the markets, both in this country and Europe, have shown that the First Mortgage Bonds of wisely-located and honorably-managed Railroads are promptly recognized and readily taken as the most suitable, safe, and advantageous form of investment, yielding a more liberal income than can hereafter be derived from Government Bonds, and available to take their place. Assured that, in the selection and nego tiation of superior Railroad Loans, we are meeting a great public want, and rendering a valuable service both to the holders of Capital and to those great National works of internal Improvement whose intrinsic merit aud substantial character entitle them to the use of Capital and the confi dence of Investors we now offer with special confidence and satisfaction the FIRST MORTGAGE ROAD CHESAPEAKE & OIIIO Railroad Company. The Chesapeake and Ohio Jtnilroad, con necting the Atlantic coaht and the magnifi cent harbors of the Chesapeake Bay with the Ohio River at a point of lvliaule navi gation, and thus, with the entire Rullrond system aod water transportation of the great West and South-west, forms t ne ad ditional Eait and West Trunk Line, so imperatively demanded for the accom modation of the immense and rapidly growing transportation between the Atlan tic seaboard and Europe on the one hand, and the great producing regions of the Ohio and Mississippi Valleys on the other. The importance of this Road as a new ontlet from the West to the sra magnifies it into one of national conse quence, and Insures to it an extensive through traffic from the day of its comple tion ; while, In the development of the ex tensive agricultural and mineral resources of Virginia and West Virginia, tt possesses, along its own line, the elements of a large and profitable local business. Thus the great interests, both geueral and local, which demand the completion of ihe Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad to the Ohio River, afford the surest guarantee of its success and value, nd render It the most Important and substantial Rail road enterprise now iu progress In this Country. Its superiority as an East aud West route, and the promise of an immense and profit able trade awaiting its completion, have drawn to it the attention and co-operation of prominent Capitalists and Railroad men of this City of sound judgment and known integrity, whose connection with it, to gether with that of eminent citizens and businessmen of Virginia and West Vir ginia, tnsnres an energetic, .mnorablf, and successful management. The road is completed and in operation from Richmond to the celebrated White Sulphur Springs of West Virginia, 227 miles, and there remain but 200 miles (now par tially constructed) to be completed, to carry It to the proposed terminus on the Ohio River at, or near, the month of the Big Sandy River, 150 miles above Cincinnati, and 350 miles below Pittsburg. Lines are now projected or 111 progress through Ohio and Kentucky to this point, which will connect the Chespealte mud Ohio with tne entire Railroad systems of the West and Southwest, and with the Paclna Railroad. Its valuable franchises and superior ad vantages will place the Chesapeake and Ohio Jiailroad Company among the richest and most powerful and trustworthy corpora tions of the country ; andthere exists a present value, In completed road and work done, equal to the en 1 1 re . in on 11 1 of the mortgage. The details of the Loan have been ar ranged with special reference to the wants of all classes of investors, and combine the j various features of convenience, safety, j and protection against loss or fraud. ' The Bonos are in denominationsof j $1000, S5uO aod 91WC, They will be issued as Coupon Bonds, pay- ' able to Bearer, and may be held iu that! form ; or .
