The Ohio Legislature has adopted res olutions of thanks to the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Company for its disinter ested generosity in affording that body a free trip to Washington and return last spring. When General Grant was supposed to be very conservative the non-partisan press, so-called, loved him very much for his independence of politicians; but now when Grant's conservatism is as a tale that is told the non-partisan press denounces him beyond measure because he does not regard the politi cians with more distinguished consider ation. These non-partisan gentlemen are hard to please in fact seem deter mined not to be pleased. On Tuesday the United States Senate passed Mr. Sherman's bill ceding back to the State of Ohio all right and inter est in the property pnrchased for the Dayton Soldiers' Asylum and relinquish ing to the State all jurisdiction over said property. The object of the meas ure is to obviate the legal and, as it seems to us, purely technical objections made to the exercise of the right of suf frage by the inmates of the Asylum . An otherwise eligible voter who has complied with the constitutional condi tions as to residence we believe to be entitled to exercise the right of suffrage in Ohio, the factof his being a disabled soldier or of his residing in property over which the federal Government claims exclusive jurisdiction to the con trary notwithstanding: Our State con stitution confers that right upon every male citizen 2 1 years of age who has resided in the county and township the time prescribed by law. Nevertheless the majority of the Ohio Supreme Judg es have in effect decided that residence in property over which the United States claims exclusive jurisdiction nullifies this provision of the constitution, and hence the necessity of Senator Sher man's bill. It will doubtless pass the House and become a law. Owing to his acceptance of the En glish Mission General Schenck has re signed his place as member of Congress from the Third District. His term of office expires by limitation on the 4th of March next, exactly forty-four days from this time, including Sundays. A spec ial election to fill the vacancy thus exist ing in the representation of the District is clamorously demanded by the Demo cratic press, and in this clamor the Ohio Senate has joined by the adoption of a series of very solemn resolutions. But Governor Hayes, who seems entirely competent to manage his affairs without the valuable help of either the Demo cratic press or the Senate, declines for very good and we think entirely suffi cient reasons to order the election thus called for. The shortest notice usually given of such an election is thirty days and the law allows twenty-one days for returning and -can vassing the votes. Before the expira tion of these periods the present term of Congress would cease to exist. But suppose the election could be held in a shorter time, what common sense is there in spending ten thousand dollars in electing a Congressman who would at most have but fifteen or twenty days to serve ? Some of the Senators clam orous for this useless expenditure were, or pretended to be, not long since, des- pratelyfeen-poa economy. Bat the merits of that sort of economy which demands an expensive election which no public interest requires, and by which none can be benefited, is not visible to the naked eye. , PROVISIO.S OF THE NEW SOL- DIESS' HOHESTI1D BILL. Washington, January 16. An impor tant measure of interest to all soldiers and sailors of the late war, was agreed upon by the Military Committee, to-day, and will be reported to the House for passage next week. It is a bill further amending the Homestead Law so that every soldier, sailor, marine and officer, who served ninety days against the re bellion, may receive a patent for one hundred and sixty acres of land, for a homestead, on condition that he shall settle upon it for a period which, togeth er with the time he served in the army or navy, would make five years. In other words, his time of service will be deducted from the five years of resi dence required by the Homestead Law, and if discharged for wounds or disabili ty, the whloe term of his enlistment will be counted. He must, however, live UDon and cultivate the land at least two years, and is to be allowed a year after selecting his homestead within which to commence his settlement. If he does not wish to avail himself of this privilege he mav assign his homestead certificate. within twelve months from the date thereof, to any citizen of the United States over twenty-one years of age, or person who has declared his intention to become such who has not previously availed himself of the benefits of the Homestead preemption Laws, and said assignee shall succeed to all the rights of i the soldier, but no sucn assignor 01 a homestead certificate shall thereafter have the right to avail himself of the benefit of the homestead acts. This privilege of assignment will make the land certificates have some small value, for they can be sold to persons not sol diers, who wish to settle in the West. In case of the death of any person who would be entitled to a homestead under the provisions of the bill, his widow, if unmarried, or, in case of her death or marriage, then his minor or phan children, will be entitled to the same benefits. Disabled soldiers whose names are on the pension rolls are al lowed to designate an agent to make the settlement for them required by the bill. This bill is doubtless, as far as Congress will go toward giving soldiers land bounties or special privileges under the Homestead Laws, and it is not certain that the Senate will consent to going so far. The measure is certain to pass the House, however. It is claimed that un der its provisions colonies of soldiers will be formed to go out and settle in the Territories and new States, following the example of the colony at Greeley, Colo rado. Washington Dispatch. A little boy in a Brooklyn Sunday school was asked lately to say which was the most beautiful verse in the Bible. After some hesitation, he replied blush ingly, "If any man pulls down the American flag shoot him on the spot." The Enquirer affects to think that "Gov. Hayes has greatly injured himself in the popular estimation" by not order ing a special election in the Third Dis trict, at an expense of $10,000 or so, to choose a Congressman who could not get his certificate and arrive in Wash ington in time to render any service. It may be that a Democratic Governor would never have "injured himself ' in that way, as it is accomplished by sim ply combining economy and common sense in the discharge of official duty; but no one had a right to expect any other course from Gov. Hayes. Cin cinnati Ckronicle. Truthful James has scared Billy Mun gen into making a speech against the Heathen Chinee.

That we have upon the statute books of Ohio laws amply sufficient, if strictly enforced, to prohibit, suppress and wholly eradicate the traffic in intoxi cating liquors, is a proposition which will scarcely be denied by any well informed and candid person. The law doubtless has imperfections, but that these are not such as need in any case defeat its enforcement or vitiate its effi ciency, is proven by experience. That a vigorous enforcement does actually make the law prohibitory in some towns of the State raises a strong presumption that it may impart to it an equal effect in all towns, while common sense as well as common observation teaches that no law, however stringent, against any offense however flagrant, is of any effect anywhere as long as men may violate its provisions with impunity. It may, without dispute, be also af firmed that no law has yet been devised which will carry into effect its own pro provisions. Self-enforcing statutes have not as yet been reached by the alchemies of legislation. The vital force of any law is public opinion. No legislation can stand a great while against it, or be of any force without it. This is especi ally true of laws which regulate or in any way interfere with individual in dulgences. As long as public opinion sanctions or tolerates them the law can not prohibit them. Whenever and wherever public opinion frowns upon and condemns them the law against them will be enforced just in proportion to the stiength of that opinion. It is public opinion, then, and not the law which does the real work of reform. Men cannot be reformed by virtue of human statutes. A fountain cannot be purer than its source, and the fountains of legislation are not always of the pur est, by any means. Besides, it is the business of the law to compel, not to persuade, and men are not reformed by compulsion. Reform is of the heart and that is just where public opinion touches. There is no human being being so bad as to be utterly regardless of the opinion of his fellows. He may yield to its sub tle but restraining influence, even while himself- unconscious that he regards it. There is no evil, social or political, so strongly intrenched that public opin ion may not exterminate it ; there is none so feeble that it may not become resistless if public opinion will foster and encourage it. The application of these plain propo sitions to the policy of temperance re form is obvious. The most, the only ef fective way to fight the liquor traffic and its resulting evils is to create public opin ion against them. And yet, we regret to say, this obvious truism seems to be entirely overlooked by many who are anxious to lead the temperance senti ment of the day. . Instead of ' striking at liquor sellers they deliver their blows upon the known friends of temperance. The efforts they ought to put forth in trying to save drunkards are wasted in a fruitless scramble for office. Instead of seeking to combine the feelings and .ef-1 forts of all classes against the common enemy, they exert themselves with in- temperate zeal to whip the rest of man kind into subservience to some hobby of their own. In this way dissensions are created among the friends of the cause which alienate many from it, and over which its enemies laugh with ex ultation. We do not say that these things may not be done with the best of motives. Possibly they are. But their pernicious results have been felt and are being real ized. Usually we have had several pub lic meetings and addresses in behalf of temperance during 'the winter. This winter, so far, there has not been one. Intemperance in this community is on the increase, and now is the time for those who make especial profession of temperance zeal to exert, it in a practical way. Now is the accepted time. It is not necessary to wait until the next po litical canvass. GENERAL BLAIR DEFINES HIS POSITION. Un i riday last Oeneral ISlaif who is a member of the Missouri Legislature felt called upon to make a few remarks to that body declaratory in his position, He affirmed his belief, as declared he his famous Broadhead letter on the strength of which he recejyed the Democratic nomination for Vice President, that the re construction actsare unconstitutional, and referred to the decision of the Supreme Court in the case of Cummings against the State of Missouri ; also to the case of Milligan and Bowles who were tried by a military commission in Indiana during the war. Referring to his letter to Col. Broadhead he used the following language : 'Sir my letter which has been referred to, contends that the mil litary should be made to undo their usur pations at the South. I say so still, and you have only to withdraw them from the South and their work will be undone. Laughter.jThose carrion crows of carpet Daggers who are gorged upon the plun der and drunk with the blood of the van quished people of the South, will dis perse themselves in an instant if not sus tained by the bayonets of the Federal Government. There is no item in that letter that I take back ; I stand by it. I believe in the construction given to the Constitution of the United States by the Supreme Court, that this reconstruction was unconstitutional. My hope in go ing to Congress, if I should attain that high position, is that I may aid in with drawing the troops from those Southern States which are held there to saddle upon the backs of that people a parcel of carpet-baggers and scallawags fol lowed by an ignorant mass of negroes, and if the people of the South who have shown a disposition to abide in good faith by the arbitrament of sums renew their allegiance to the Government they will be allowed to resume self govern ment among themselves as we have done in Missouri. And whilst I may not expect to carry with me the gentle man from St. Louis, I believe that we can surely and certainly count upon the co-operation of the large body of liberal men who assisted us in relieving ourselves from a similar tyranny in the State of Missouri. The speech concludes with a rather savage assault upon John B. Henderson, a part of whose career during the early part of the war is not very delicately handled. He forgives all past misdeeds of the gentleman, how ever for the position he took in the im peachment trial of Andy Johnson. WiK ITEMS. Bourbaki who has been moving east ward with the view of interrupting Ger man communications, has been repulsed in two assaults on Belfort. ' " A general battle was fought on the 1 itb. under the walks of Le Mans, the Germans under Prince Frederick Charles attacking the Army of the Loire along its whole line. The result was disas trous to the French who lost 12 guns and from 1 5 to 20 thousand prisoners. The French forces retreated southward followed by the victorious Germans. The bombardment of Paris has been quite destructive to a large portion of the city. According to the latest reports more than half of the city is exposed to the German shells. The New York Herald has a dispatch of the 17th affirming the dangerous and it is feared fatal illness of Count Bis marck. Several sorties made by the Parisian army during the past few days have been repulsed. At the latest advices the Army of the Loire under General Chanzy was still retreating. MORE ABOUT DESERTERS. Concerning deserters we have a private letter, elicited by our observations of last week, from General Knapp, Adju tant General of Ohio, from which we take the liberty to quote : "So many muster-out rolls are missing from the records that it is impossible to give more than an approximate estimate of the number of men who, at the muster-out of their respective commands were regarded as deserters. The rolls on file here report in round numbers about 13,500 deserters. Taking this as a basis for estimating the number re ported on muster-out rolls not received at this office we should have a total of about 17,000. But a larsre number of men have been charged with desertion on intermediate rolls whose names do not appear on muster-out rolls, or who have been informally restored to duty without trial and are not borne as deser ters on muster-out rolls, although the charge appears against them on the re cords of the War Office. How many of these there are I . have no means of knowing, as the bi-monthly muster rolls were not transmitted to this office. Any estimate would therefore be mere guess work, but I do not think the number would exceed 10,000, making the total -07,000 which I think is the estimate made by Gen. B. R. Cowen at the time the question of submitting the amend ment to the State Constitution was un der advisement in the General Assem bly." We place these statements in General Knapp's own language because of their importance to the public and especially to the soldiers. During the canvass on the suffrage amendment it was currently stated on information alleged to have been officially communicated from Washington that the number of Ohio Soldiers registered as deserters on the rolls of the War Department was not less than 40,000. This estimate appears from the reliable statements of General Knapp to have been largely in excess of the actual number which, as we are now informed, was probably never larger than 27,000. At the present time it is considerably less so the Adjutant Gen eral states as many soldiers have taken the trouble to have themselves cleared of the charges against them. "It is highly probable," says Gen Knapp, "ihat the only classes of men now charged with desertion of which there is any considerable number are, 1, Bonn fide deserters who deserve no sympathy, and 2, Soldiers who served faithfully until the close of the war and left their commands through no intention to evade duty, but simply because thev desired to see their homes Many of these men honestly believed that as the war was over they were en - titled to immediate release from farther service. This view, whether erroneous or not, was a very natural one for them to take and should mitigate the penal ty.' This latter class, as indeed all others have been, are now left to their own re sources to secure relief from the charges made against them, while at the same time, under the present regulations of the War Department, relief is next to impossible. The soldier is required to produce evidence which shall entirely clear him of the charge of unlawful ab sence which in cases of wilful though venial absence is impossible. An act of Congress authorizing and requiring the officers of the War Department to dis criminate between cases of wilful and technical desertion would facilitate the adjustment of such cases and enable very many deserving soldiers to obtain the back pay and bounty now witheld from them. THE BOMB A ADMEN T OF- PARIS. In reference to the bombardment now in progress the New York Tribune re marks : - We recognize the necessity, and even the mercifulness, of a vigorous bom bardment that shall end the suffering and break the deadlock of a war that has outlived its use and meaning. We can bear with equanimity the battering of some palaces, if thereby the hovels can be spared. But we cannot forbear mingling our vows with those of the children of Paris everywhere that the shells may fall lightly on some time honored spots sacred to learning and art the quaint Museum of Cluny, with its visible history of the Middle Ages-;' the stubborn arches of the imperial house of Julian the Apostate ; the library of St. Genevieve, with its precious wealth of books and manuscripts, which has been for so many years the nursery of high thought and aspiration to the liber al youth of France. All these lie fairly in the devastating track of the Prussian guns. And towering above them all, lookine over the beleaguered capital to the west, facing with immortal eyes of unflinching marble the caressing sunset and the hostile cannon, the grand group of the republican sculptor, David of Angers, fills with beauty and nobility the pediment of the Pantheon. We shall have a better opinion of fixed am munition all our lives if these marbles survive the bombardment. Chinamen's oueues are not to be mo lested in Cincinnati with impunity. A Chinese juggler. Ah Foon by name, had visited a large pork-packing factory, and while watching, as a fellow country man testified, "Melican man cut big hog, astonished," was still more aston ished by having one of the workmen come behind him and cut on his cher ished pigtail. The pork-packer who committed the deed, pleaded that he did not know what the thing was, but supposed some of the boys had tied it on the man ; but this excuse would not Eass with the magistrate, who sentenced im to thirty day's days" imprison ment in the work house, explaining that he did not inflict a fine because that would be paid by the prisoner's friends, and be no punishment for the accused. The case, from its singularity, excited a good deal of interest in Cincinnati, JSEW ADTEBTISE3IESTS. MASOIVIC. RKRR will are a Fneclal i. Communication of Hiram Lode-, w No. IS p. A.
