At the last session of the General Assembly, Mr. Titos, the faithful and efficient Representa tive of Ssnoa county, Introduced a bill io the boose, amending the aot for the assessment and taxation of the property In this State, and for levying tsxas thereon aooording to its true value la money, so as to extend the time for the appraisement ol the real estate four years. In other words, the bill provides that the next appraisement shall take plaoe in 1868, Instead of 1864, and every tenth year thereafter. This bill passed the House last year by an almost unanimous vote, and went to the Sen- ate, where it was referred to the Finance com mittee. By them It was retained nntil thjs . session, and nntil tbey were called upon to re port it bask, when it rawed the Senate and be came a law. It is a most important aot one that the owners of real estate will heartily commend. Mr. TtTDi was a member of the last Bute Board of Equalisation, and has given much attention to this subject. The tax-payers of the State will thank him for what he baa ac complished In their behalf in a quiet and effect ive way. He is a useful and industrious legis lator, and regards the wants and wishes of his constitnenti and the people of the State. Election of School Directory by Wards. Mr. Bieiob has introduced Into the 8tate Senate a bill, providing for the election of the School Directors of this oity by wards. Why this proposition to change the mode of electing School Director! I We believe no each change la demanded by the public sent! ment of the eitv. AH we can see in It la that tome uneasy politicians desire to provido seats In the Board of Education for themselves or some of their party friends. , j The present Board of Education have, w'p believe, been unanimous in Ignoring politics in the selection of teachers and in all their other cffloial aotion. Bat if the majority In the Leg islature for mere artisan ends pass this bill of Biiici's to subserve the selfish purposes of gome bot-hcaded partiiane, they will set an ex ample of Interference in the educational con cerns of our city, that may not be productive of very pleasant results to their own party friends. The old adage to "let well enough alone," may not be Inappropriate In thia case. The Noble County Prisoners Held to Bail The six or seven Noble county prisoners, whose examination before U. S. Commissioner HiLUDiT was concluded on Saturday, the 4th inst.i and who were not discharged, were, on Monday following, held to bail to answer the charges against them in the U. S. Court. The thirteen prisoners, who arrived at Cincinnati on Frjday, the 3d Inst., from' Noble county, waived an examination and entered ball for their appearance at court. As the U. 8. Court commenced a session at Cincinnati on Tuesday, the 7th Inst., the oases of all these prisoners will probably nor be disposed of, se far as the action of the grand jury la con cerned. ' Personal. We had a very pleasant and agreeable call on Wednesday, from the Hon. J. F. Haaimr, member of the Indiana Legislature from Montgomery county. He waa on the commit tee that dre'tad the able, conservative, and pa triotio address to the people of that State.wbich has just been published. j ' It Is In keeping with Abolition consistency ta eall man " Copperheads '.' and " Traitors," who desire the restoration of the Union as it existed daring eighteen Presidential terms, with the re lationa that In all Ibaf long period existed be- . tween all the States and the National Govern meat j while men who, like Gen.

" 1 'V Report of Committee on the Conduct of the War. The long-looked for report of the cvmmlttee raised 'la Congress on the "Conduct of the War," has at last made its appearance. It is signed by B. F. Wads, of Ohio, and Z C Chandleb, of Michigan, on the part of the Senate, and D. W.Uooch, of Massachusetts; John Covodi, of Peunsylvaniai G. W. Julian, of Indiana, and M. F. Ooill, of New York, on the part of the House. The report is elab orate and of great length, ocoupylog nearly fonr pages, or about twenty-four closely printed columns In the New York Trtinn. This doca.nent, which is the result of from one to two years' labor on the part of its aa tuors, professes to be a report on the "Conduct oi the War." But so far from being a general exhibit or review of the progress of the war, it Is almost wholly confined to details la regard to General MoCullan's conduotand the opera' tiona of the Army of the Potomac. The com mittee ignore the operations of our army in the Southwest. They seem to know nothing about Charleston, New Orleans, etc.; nothing about the achievements of Rosicrans or the move ments of Giant on the Mississippi.' They are even dumb as to the long delay sinoe the battle of Fredericksburg la the Army of the Potomac Everything else seems to havo been forgotten for the sake of orltlclams upon McClillah and Busnsjdc, and almost altogether upon the former; Thia long report, prepared and published at the publlo expense, is fitly characterised as ad elaborate dooument preparatory to the Presi dential campaign of 1864, We know not how else to account tor the fact that a report, whloh assumes to be a review of the general course of the war, should be oonfioed lo the war in a sin gle seolion of the oountry and only detail the operations of a single command. The object kept steadily in view throughout thia long- wlndtd dooument, seems to have been to frame a partisan Indictment agaiust General McCi.n.' lan, in order to blast bis well-earned repula tion aj a soldier and to doprive him of that high regard which the army and the people en tettaia for him aa a man and a patriot. But the criticisms of suoh non military men and well known partisans as Warn, Chandler, Jouan, eto , will be esteemed of little worth in the sober judgment ol unprejudiced minds. The report not only is an attempt at tbe im peaohment ol General McClillah, bnt also of the President, the Secreta y of War and Gen eral Hallick. It mors that Intimates thai the latter were the three persons by whom, or some one of whom, General Bdsnbidi's plan for an advance after the battle of Fredericksburg was betrayed to the enemy, causing so abandon1 ment of the plan. Tbey were the only three persons, it appears from the report, who were entrusted with the seoret of the plan, and as no other person could have revealed It, its betrayal must, according to the report, rest with them How those who claim to be exclusi ve supporters of the Government will dispose of this attics; on the highest publlo authorities, remains lobe seen. Wo can not better close this article than with the following remarks of the New York World on the "coarse of events which compelled the abandonment of the siege of Richmond after the thunder of oar gnns had shaken the stand ard of the Confederates upon the very Walls of their defiant capital." They are given at the close of a review of the committee's report On the night of the 28th Jane, 1862, Gener al MoClellan round himself called npoo to elect between a retreat In the face of an enemy su perior In numbers and the risk of the complete annihilation of the finest army of the Union. A more cruel alternative was never imoosed upon a soldier and a patriot. How bravely It was met. how wisely deoided, our children's obildren will read with clearer eyes than ours, and honor with more liberal hearts the young general who resolved that awful question with no thought or care bat for bis country and for the heroes whom bis country bad given into bis charge. When the die waa cast, the report tells as that General MoClellan sent to the Seo retary of War a telegram sitting bis con- viotion " tnai me uovernmeni naa not sustained the army." This telegram Mr. Stanton evidently did -not think it well to submit for Inspection to Mr. Wade and bis colleagues. Tbe oountry would like to see It, will no doubt ere long be permitted to see it, and will then more fully appreciate the over whelming admission of tbe f resident's reolv: "If yon have bad a drawn battle, or a repulse, is tba prloe we pay for the enemy cot being Washington. We protected Washington and the enemy concentrated on you. Had we stripped Washington he would have been npon us before tne troops sent coma nave got to 7. . . . " . . .. in tneee lew oat most pregnant wows lies the triumphant vindication of General McClel lan'a fame. These words confers all that the most Impartial students of tbe. peninsular cam paign have so often and so earnestly asserted. "We protected Washington and tbe enemy concentrated on yon." Weeks before, when the campaign against Kionmoua was culminat ing fast to victory, tne oayoneis wnicn wouia have made that victory secure were with drawn "to protect Waablngton." To "pro teot Washington" the Army of tbe Potomac had been amputatea or its rtgnt nana, ana its .commander coolly Invited amid tbe sudden orash at all his best-matured plans "to do the best he could." When the soldiers Indispensable to victory on tbe James and tbe CbickaDominy were arming maaiy about npon tbe track of Jaokaou along the Shenandoah, the Potomao and the Rappihan- nock, General MoClellan had warned tbe gov ernment of the fatal course it was pursuing, bad implored the President to listen to the dio tatcs ot all military experience, but In vain. Tbe movement by whloh Jackson swept from Rlohmond toward tne pnenanaoan, leaving tne thonshu and souls oi the Washington cabinst oapiive In a tranoe or terror dwiiuu mm, never for a moment deceived General McClellan. i-.f knn'a movement, he told ibe government, waa almnlv Intended to prevent reimoicemenia from reaobing himself. He was entirely right, and Jackson was entirely successful. 1 be dar iiiv fianfedMate aooomDiunea nis purpose muy threw the authorities at Washington into utter m.nln.ion. broka US tnrouxh their panic-strick en folly the final combination which must bave delivered Richmond over Into onr power, and hMiinir then noon hla Una of march swooped down npon tbe Chlokabomluyjoined bis foroea with those of Lee, and diore tbe Army of the Potomao Into that retreat which Its own en during courage and tbe patient skill ol its commander were to make immortal In tbe an nals ot war. The Democratic Party. . The following paragraph we clip from the addres to tba people ot Indiana by tbe Pm ooratle members of tbe Legislature of that State, It is a short but comprehensive reoltai of the history, and a stieWiment ol the position, of our rood old party: " The Demooratio party is yet a power In tbe oountry. Its manly proportions ore notawari A nor its nowers impaired, lie eye is briiibt, and It looks with andimmed vision to tbecyole of years of glory betors our now oieeaing coun try. Its vigoroas band la nntalsled by age, and Its strong arm brawny with the sinews of honest labor and unfaltering courage. It will yet save the nation. I n organization which exists 5F because It lovei the Constitution, and It cannot disband while that Constitution survives. .It kept this people at peace with each other tor the sixty years It had oontrol of the Govern ment, ana it win armg tnem togeiuor kiu. Ita doctrines are snlted to the genius of free in stitutions. It teaches the political equality, of the great white race appointed to oontrol this asylum or tne nations, it is a living, moriug, and never-dying sentiment that all these States and all these peoples bave equal rights, and that none bat traitors deny their sovereign pow r to faahlon and inatitute such State govern ments as to them may seem jOBt. This is De mooracv. Look back to its history. That bis torylsfall of glorious rooolleotlons During its power ia the government of the country it added more territory to tke Union than was em braced In the original thirteen revolutionary Stajes. It presided at the baptism of tbe new sisters which have been added to the Confede racy, and never reeulsed one on aooount of ber domestio institutions. The nation, nnder the guidance of the Demooratio party, expanded In all tha elements of true ereatnea. No State re ceived injuatioe at ita hands, and no class was oppressed by its legislation. The rich man found security for bis possessions, and tbe poor man was elevated bv its equitable ana jam laws It uandored lo no passion, because, lis action waa based upon tbe great and enduring principles or constitutional freedom. [For the Ohio Statesman.] School Directors. I obaerve that Mr. Biaaci of the Senate has introduced a bill. to provide for electing the School Directors of this olty by wards in stead of by the vote of the whole city. - Mr. Bitaoi must bave a deep personal Interest In tbe affairs of this city. Who has asked him for thia interference in our school matters? Who has heard of any complaint of the man agement of tbe schools of this olty, to make it noceesary to change tbe eleotions? While this city waj Whig or Republican it was all right, perfeotly satisfactory! but now, tbe olty is largely Demooratio, It muat be changed, and made to suit the whims of John J. Jannit, and a few fellows who have boen rejected from tbe Sohool Board, and cannot be elected by be people. As tbe wards are all Demooratio but thret, would it not be advisable to out off the six Demoosatlo wards, and confine the eleotion exclusively to the three Republican wards, and then if, next year, we should carry tbe three, let tbem be elected in Ashtabula county, where they will be perfectly safe to tbe Abolitionists? I merely throw out the suggestion to sbe bow It will work. THE OHIO LEGISLATURE. In the Sinatc, on Wednesday, April 8tb,the following bills were passed: Houbs bill, To au thorlze tbe Commiaaioners of LuoaS oounty to build a jail, make contract!, issue bonds, and inorease the tixlevy upon the taxable property of the coutity; House bill, To amend sections two and nine of an act ent'tled aa act preacrib ing tbe duties of Supervisors and relating to roads and highways, passed Feb. 13, 1853; Sen ate bill, Prescribing the mode of collecting tixes on leased lands; For tbe relief of Charles Rule; House bill, Relative to increasing the number of Directirs of Insurance Companies; House bill.

A communication waa real and ordered to be printed, from the Attorney General, relative to tbe claim of .Alexander Cummings. Tbe Senate adjourned. The Hodsi spent tbe entire day considering the General Appropriation bill, and, in tbe evening, took a recess until nine o'clock Thurs day morning, April 9th. The Connecticut Election. The Connecticut Demooraoy bave made a gallant fight, and though they have not quite succeeded In carrying tbe State, tbey have re duced the Republican majority ot 9148, by wbicb Buckingham was elected last year, to something like 2500 or less. It is true we were nopmg to ao better and annihilate the Republican majority entirely; but considering all ibe circumstances It it en couraging to bave done so much. The exer tions made by tbe Administration party were never equaled in any State eleotion in onr his tory. But aa the fruit of all this effort tbe Ad ministration party baa made no gains; it has not even held its ground; it has suffered a loss, aa compared with the Republican majority igrt year, ol over ouuu votes. uur irienas mignt nave aone netier I tney wonld have dons better if they bad not mate what we conceive to have been a mistake in thnir mnria of onenlnB the canvasa. Onr vlewa oa this point are stftloiently indicated when we say that the issue presented by the New York Democracy, and on whioh we so triumphantly carried tbe ctate last rail, was the true one. We regretted tbat Conneotiout did not follow la the wake of the Middle and Western Slates j bnt it waa no business of her sister States to dictate to ber either the nlatform ahe should adopt or Iba candidates abe abould present for tbe suffrages of ber oit'zens. Tbe result, which though encour aging has fallen below ber expectations, may serve to convince ber tbat New York, Penn sylvania, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, New Jersey, and New Hampshire judged more wisely than herself. The Connecticut Demooracy exposed themselves to the imputation cer tainly an nojusl imputation aa respects the majority of tbe parly ia that State of being a peace paity i but it is tbe deliberate judg ment of a majoilty of the Northern people that we oan bave no honorable peace until tbe rebels are ready to lay down their arms. In- spite ol their mistake, we abould certainly bave voted with the Demoorats, bad we been cilUens of Connecticut. Tbe complete sncoees of tbe Con necticut Demooracy with tbe candidates they obose to run, could not have slackened tbe mili tary operations ot tbe Government, bnt it would bave strengthened Ibe general condemnation of the policy on which tbe war has been conduct ed. , Bat as matters were managed, tha Repub licans were enabled to ablfi the Issue. ; Instead of being iwmpelled lo take a defensive attitude, and ward off damaging attacks on tbalr eman cipation proclamation, arbitrary ' arrests, and enormous military blunders, tbey found a pre text for attacking: the Democracy aa a peaoe oirtv. and eaooeeded in deluding a sufficient cumber of people with this pretext to turn tbe scale against us and tare themselvea from the blasting rebuke which their maladministration so richly deserved.

Tbey cunningly sunk out of sight the emancipation proclamation and an their distinctive measures, and pretend ed to stand on tbe platform whloh tha great body of the Democrats have alwayi ocoupled, namely, that the war could soooeed and lha union be restored only by auooessfur fighting. This la'preolsely what the Democrata contended for la the great vlotorles they won last fall against auoh sham war -measures aa the eman cipation proslamation and arbitrary arrests. Tbe Indiscreet isal of tbe few peaoe men in the Demooratio patty has lately given the Re publicans a handle .for representing the whole party as a pesoe nartv, and their dishonest use of this advantage haa saved them a few thou sand votes tbey would otherwise bava lost The broad fact which no amount of Republi can crowing over their narrow escape In Con necticut oan conceal, is tbat every bute eleo tion (exoept Rhode Island) since the iaeue of tbe nret emancipation proclamation, has re suited lu large Demooratio gains, and nearly every one in a ereat Demooratio viotory. With the single exoeptioo of New Jersey, all these victories bave annihilated Immense Kepublicua majorities. That Connecticut is not in the list of victories Is merely owing to the pretended abandonment by the Republicans of their prin ciples, t lake advantage of the mletike of a few paaoe Uemoorats. aeto for woria.

Constable, recently arrest ed by order of Gen. Carringtou upon the charge oi interfering to prevent the arresl of deserters, in Ularke county, has neen removed from Indi anapolis to Springfield, 111., and there delivered to the oivil authorities. ' The Springfield firsts -ter says: "An affidavit was filed before S. A. Cornoau, U. S. Commissioner for ibis District, charging Judge Constable with injuring desert ers to relnse to return to duty, and noon Ibis affidavit a warrant was issued, directed to the Marshal and executed by that officer by taking Judge C. and bringing him before Mr. Corneau.

Although up to three o'olock yes terday afternoon Gen. Banks had received no intelligence respecting tbe destruction of Pen sacola, 1 bave reoeived my information from such a source tbat I have no hesitation In In corporating it in this letter. When it was known that orders were re ceived at Pensaoola for tbe departure of the Twenty-eighth Maine regiment for New Or leans, and the ocoupatlqn of the forts and navy yards only by tbe two remaining regiments, the Fifteenth Maine end Twenty-eighth Con necticut, the soldiers seemed to think thst the entire evacuation of the place to Ibe enemy was intended, and many of them were heard to swear that they would burn the plaoe before they left. Accordingly on Thursday noon fires msde their appearaooe, and for three days ana nignis tne piece was nuea with smoke and name. At nigt tbe soene is described as terri bly magnificent. , There bad been no qnarrel between the oil i- aens and soldiers of which I have been able to learn. The soldiers were not intoxicated when the fires commenced, but they broke open a drug store and obtained a quantity of liquors before their progress was checked. Tbey burned the bouses they had themselves occupied, St. Mary's Hall, a fine hotel In the best part ot the town, all tbe dwellings but those of Maj. Chase ana LOi. mauory. mere were bat a few hun dred people la Ibe plaoe, who gathered sucb movables at they could collect, and assembled with them in the publlo square . Offioers and soldiere must have been in a state of utter de moralization. The offioers seem to bave tad no influence over the men. Tbey are reported as having need their endeavors to arrest tbe work of desolation. All military oper allocs and dis cipline were at aa end. Guards would be sta tioned to protect propei ty, and on the Instant of tbe disappearance ot tbe officer, tbe guard would fire the propeity ne had been plaoed in obarge of. Col. Djer, commanding tbe pott, rode about, report says, almost distracted at the conduct of his men. He gave orders, it is said, tbat persons caugbt setting firee should be in ttintly shot, but not one executed them for a long while. Finally, tbe long roll was beaten, tbe men were gathered into tbe navy yard and confined. Col. Dyer sent notice 1st) town, Bays one of my informants, that if any o.tlzeu would come forward aud tike the oath of aileelaooe. tbey would be protected in person and property. This account ia gathered from parties just from Pensacola, and may be au exaggeration ef tbe true state of tbe case in some particulars, but l am persuaded mat it is, lo tbe main, trnitwortby. Anecdote of Gen. Sumner. Tbe Springfield Rtpubliean gives the follow log amusing account of' the turning point in Gen. SoMNra'a early life:' ' Gen. Sumner, when a young man, wasa stage driver among theBerkshire h'ills, end this ia bow be happened to get into tbo army: At a lime in winter when tbe roads were dangerous, going down a steep hill, the stage slewed and turned over, but tbe horses kept on. One of tbe passengers pushed, out of the door on the upper side of the coaoh and climbed upon the box and atiempted to take the reins from Sumner's hands. "You lol the reins alone or I'll throw you off!" said the driver with determination. Ibe nassenger wisely abandoned his attempt at Interference, and Sumner guided the learn firmly till it was safe to stop them, dragging the overturned coach along, and so saved pas sengers and team- The passenger who attempt ed to lake the reins was Gen.
