Tbi Bbitish Pum OTincei a dispo
sition upon the part of British polo
ticiaos to evade the mistakes of the
past with regards to American affairs,
by applauding the popular sentiment
of the country as evinced toward Gen
eral Grant. The wise men in England
foresee the strengthened condition of
the United States which is certain to
follow Grant's inauguration ; and they
sagaciously prefer to propitiate so
formidable a power. Nothing could
be a stronger indication of the General's
strength as a Presidential condidate
than the concessions made in his be
half by the leading English journals.
John Bull does not always know what
side his bread is buttered on, but when
be finds out be takes excellent care to
keep the buttered side up.
BY STATE TELEGEAPH-
Senator Sherman proposes as direct
aad certain a " thoroughfare" for the
subjugation of Alabama rebels as bis
brother conceived of when he started
through Georgia on his march to the
aea. Should the bill which be has in.
troduced into Congress become a law
t'je Reconstruction Acts will be given a
full sweep over all obstructions and sol
lea non-actions ; it makes a clean cut
at all the old and new fastenings by
which the rebellion holds to, and bind
rrj the action of, the legitimate govern
ment, its conqueror. A declaration that
certain things doBe and perfected in any
cue of the distracted communities o
the South shall entitle its people to re
presentation in the National Legisla
ture, breaks out the road of Restoration
at once. A certain and simple way
which cannot be evaded by technical
skirmishing will divert the stxgnant
waters into one broad and resistless
In epposition to this measure of
Sherman's, the Copperheads will quote
the inviolability of that provision of
the Reconstruction Act which requires
a majority vote of all persons registered
as a necessity to the adoption of the
i:ew Constitutions. To be snre they
have sworn great oaths that the whole
of the Reconstruction Laws are unconsti
tutional. But when have they been, or
when have they evinced any desire to
be, consistent ? But the strong ground
which Sherman may and does occupy is
tsat Congress hag the right to judge of
las qualification of its own members
besides being the supreme political
power of the land. There is a bold, de
fermined dash abont this new bill that
meets the requirements of the times. It
pays no toll npon the turnpikes of Cop
perbeadism bnt takes a straight
"chute" of its own, 'cross country.
Such is the way to gain the mastery of
tbe situation. Timidity and uncertain
groping have too long characterized tbe
performances of oar political doctors.
The passage of Sherman's Bill will
solve the Reconstruction problem at
Ca it bs possibli that tbe Copper
heads on tbe Supreme Bench nnited in
tbe late opicior, dismissing tbe Georgia
vase, in order to put Congress off its
guard and defer action with relation to
i he proposed law requiring a two-third
r unanimous decision upon Constitu
tional questions, and thus to secure to
themselves a clear field in which to
operate upon tbe McArdla case ?
Telegraphic Postal Communication-.
It is assuring to the public that the matter is
being vigorously pursued. Says the Wash
ington Chronicle of the 2Sth ult.:
Mr. Washburne, of Illinois, is busily en
IPgtil in perfecting his bill to secure tele
graphic postal communication with all parts
i-f tiie United State. He has already re
reivrd information from Europe pertaining
tt thin subject, and is daily awaiting more.
As he contemplates violent opposition from
the established telegraphic lines, he desires
to make bis proposed system ao complete
and desirable that there nill be no doubt of
it adaption. 1

Chicago, February 12. Washington spe
cials say the prospects of impeachment are
fading away. The Senate Judiciary Commit
tee are opposed to Edmonds' bill regulating
the proceedings in cases of impeachment,
and providing for suspension of officers after
articles are presented. Without this bill, it
is generally considered it is of no use to im
peach the President.

dent, upon satisfactory proof, to cause such
person to be sent back to the country from
which he came.
The bill drafted by the Secretary of State,
concerning the rights of American citizens,
came up. After some remarks banks moved
the previous question, which cut up further
amendments. J. he House reluscd to sustain
the demand for the previous question by a
decided majority. Jcnks oliered an amend
ment in the nature of a substitute for the
bill, declaring the right of expatriation and
naturalization to be the public law of the
United States, and directing the President to
insist upon the recognition of such rights by
other Governments. A number of other
amendments were offered.

Fresh. Ranch Uutter,
Valuable Suetace Ores. Says yester
day's Enterprise :
A great deal of prospecting is at present
being done in the outcroppings of abandoned
mines lying from one to five miles eastward
of the great Comstock lode, and in many
instances paying ore has been found upon
and near the surface. In Silver Star District
ore has lately been found that assayed at the
rate of $50 per ton for selected ore. There
will doubtless be some valuable discoveries
made in our old abandoned mines during the
coming summer. In Castle District, north
of the citv, are many very large leads.
crowned in most instances with huge masses
of croppings, that have been abandoned for
five or six years. In the vicinity of a num
ber of these, shafts have been sunk to a depth
of from 10J to 200 feet, and in some in
stances tunnels of considerable length were
driven in. In most cases an influx of water
put an end to operations on the shafts before
the leads for which they were started were
reached, and few of the tunnels were ever
driven in far enough to tap the veins toward
which they were directed. But little work
was ever done with a view to a practical test
of auy of the leads, and little more is known
of their value than when they were first dis
covered. We believe that good surface ore
will vet be found in the district.
