Intcrestlag Summary of News
at theCapital—Ciurioaitics of
the Income Tax, dec., dec.
[From Our Own Reporter.]
Wabihxotos, Nov. 17,1853.
Messrs. Nlcolay and Hsy, private Secreta
ries to the President, have had a few photo
graphic copies of the Emancipstlon Procla
mation taken. They are perfect foe similes
of the original in evety respect, and are really
fire specimens of the art. They will he des
lined to a wide circulation in this form, in
which they can he reproduced ad libitum.
Some of the Assessors’ returns exhibit
some dubious statements of incomes, and
some very astonishing ones. For instance,
Mr. FarweU, of the Cooley, Farwell
& Co., of your city, returns an income of
(me hundred and tuxniy<me thousand dollars
per annum, clear of everything; while the
senior member of the firm returns over two
hundred thousand dollars. Potter Palmer,of
yonr city, returns one hundred and sixty or
seventy thousand dollars. Ol the dubious
statements, that ot a noted ex-member of
Congress of yonr city, supposed to be worth
over a million, is the most surprising. Ho
returns an income of itro thousand dollars per
annum. It seems to me, that this would
ccarceljkccp him in bitters,evcn supposing he
;r.js but five cents a glass for his gin, Iletta
that He friends propose to take up a coliee
’»E frr his relief. Another pun in Chicago,
supposed to he ae rich os Cr&sna, and no
ponbt immensely wealthy, returns just no
income at all, in these flourishing times. He
professes that his interest and taxes eat it all
up. Tell that to the marines, “Matt,” the
old salts don’t believe yon.
An active canvass for the election of mem
ber of Congress in Delaware, to supply the
vacancy caused by the death of Hon. William
Temple, is now going on. The candidates
are: Nathaniel B. fidithers, Union, and
Charles Brown, formerly of Pennsylvania,
copperhead, ot the VaHandlgham, Woodward
and Sejmonr stripe. The election comes ofi
on Thursday next (I9th). At Middleton, on
Thursday, a huge Union meeting was ad
dressed by Gov. Curtin, Hon, D. S. Dickin
son, Ex-Gov. W, F. Johnston, Ex-Gov, Ban
da!!, of Wisconsin, Gen. Schenck, and others.
«r. Dickinson's speech is said to have been
ibe ablest of Ms life. It Is expected here that
in this election the Union cause will also
tchicve a triumph, and that Delaware will
place herself side by side with Maryland on
•he all-absorbing question of human freedom,
m CATxcns or Brownsville—the french
Since I mailed my letter to-day, news has
oecn received of the capture of Port Brown
«rd Brownsville, Texts, by Gen. Banks.
Ibis brings us face to free with the French
io Mexico, who are within & few miles of
Montamoraa; end I hasten to inform yon
of the situation of matters there, and ths
provide views and intentions of our Govern
ment. The Administration plainly gees the
delicacy of the situation involved in this new
phase of the rebellion. If they want a for
• ign war now, they con as easily bring It on
as Folk did thd- Mexican invasion. If the
President thinks one war on his hands at a
rime is sufficient, he will avoid a collision
with the French troops, and also all measures
which would tend to bring one on. The
French are naturally a positive, excitable,
uad pugnacious people, and some what arro
gant withal; and they will be found
tensltive and prompt to resent an injury or
even slights, put upon them. The coarse of
the French Government in stopping the rams,
has, however, given ours assurance ol their
desire to avoid a difficulty with us, and as
long as they manifest such desire they will
be gratified. The occupation of the the Tex
an side of the Bio Grande hy us will not
then necessarily change our relations and at
titude towards the trench, and, indeed, it
will he the desire of the Administration, as I
learn, to avoid all causes of offence to the
French army of occupation. Consequently,
orders to tiuspnrport have already gone for
ward to Gen. Banks, who will govern himself
accordingly. In the meantime, the Govern
ment reserves to itself all fatnre action rela
tive to the much-mooted Monroe doctrine,
and its violation, ns understood by us, in ths
French invasion of Mexico. So that any clap
trap or blowing by Bennett's Herald, or any
°T l ? r newspaper, as respects trouble
withiheFreuch in Mexico, is simply moon
abme. The copperheads will not be grati
fied by even the prospect of trouble with any
foreign nation, as long as this rebellion Is in
existence. Nor do we seek any Baulin
or other entangling foreign alliance. With
our own right hands we intend to sub
due treason and traitors. AU we ask of oth
er nations, is simply to keep their hands off.

Tour letter was most welcome, and came
in good time, just after I had got out of the
worst scrape ever the regiment was in. . Oar
regiment, as skirmishers, stormed the rebel
forts at Rappahannock Station, Nov. 7th, In
the night. About ten minutes after we got
their guns and were In their works, the sth
Wisconsin came to onr support, and for half
an hour we fought the rebels hand to baud
with bayonets, swords, stones and clubs. We.
got poisession of their bridge, so they could
not escape—held their two forts with their
cannon. After half on hour, the sth Maine
and three New York and Pennsylvania regi
ments came up, and we took all that did not
swim the river—lo3 officers and 1,500 men,
seven guns and eight colors. Our regiment
did the most of the fighting, supported nobly
by the sth Wisconsin, when they got up. The
work was done by the time the four other
regiments came io, and they had nothing to do
but gather the spoil; though I suppose the
Pennsylvania and New. York papers will
credit their regiments with Hie victory.
Wc lost sixteen officers out of twenty-five,
and one hundred and twenty-two enlisted
men out ot two hundred and ninety engaged;
more than all the rest lost together.
The rebels were about two thousand to
three thousand in number, and had a strong
position, and acknowledged that they never
saw men fight before as ours did. 1 got one
ball in my coat, another struck my sword
tcabbard, and my face was burned by a rebel
who was so sure of me that he just missed
me. I think I have bragged enough
time, hut my story is true, anyway.
It is very cold here, and the mountains are
white with snow, and my h*ndff are quite

of battle at Campbell’s Station, when a fight
ensued, lasting from late in the afternoon
until dark.
Onr first position commanded the road

/as are the antagonists of that scheme, those
nho maintain that the Governor's proclama
matloa eras negatory, and that tho Tirenty.
third Legislature has still a constitutional
existence, are not leas confident In their an
ticipations of victory.
As a matter of interesting information upon
one of the meet Important, and I.belleve, the
most hotly contested and thoroughly dis
cussed question that was ever argued
before a legal tribunal In this Strte, I
propose briefly to state the grounds upon
which they rest their opinion.
.The proclamation of Governor Tates, ad
jmnninE the twenty third General Assemble
of tie State of Illinois, urns based upon the
thirteenth eection of the fourth article ot the
Constitution, which Is in the followin'*
words: ®
Sec. 13. In case of disagreement between
tbe two boars, with respect to the time of
sojournment, tho Governor shall have power
10 aojonm the General Assembly to such
time as he thinks proper, provided it be not
to a period beyond the next constitutional
meeting of the same.* 1
The opponents of the Governor say that an
eiamination of the relation which the two
Hcnees sustained to each other on the ques
tion of an adjournment, at the date of hia
I-rodamallon, show it to be invalid lor the
First. They agree that the word “ disagree
ment,* 1 as applied to the proceedings of two
dhtincs parte ot one legislative body, has a
definite and well-settled meaning, growing
out of long parliamentary usage, and la that
stnas only can we suppose it to have been
employed la the^Jonstitution.
In that sense they say It Implies not mere
ly that the two houses have voted differently
upon the same proposition, but that they
have carried their difference through various
stages of persistency, which have made it ap
parent to them and to all the world tbit their
conflict of opinion Is absolute and irrecaacil
able. The words used to designate the moat
important of these stsges are "insist” and "ad
here” whenthe two houses finally “adhere”
•o opposite sides of the same proposition,
.>bea and not Ull then, os they urge, the fact
ot a 44 parliamentary disagreement” maybe
looked upon as established. .But here, say
<he antagonists of the Governor, there was
no 41 disagreement” in any such sense. The
Senate vo*cd on the eighth of June, the
House concurring to adjourn on the eighth.
:»t six o'clock, P. M., sine die. The resolution
being sent to the House, that body amended
it by striking out 44 eighth** and inserting
*‘ twenty-second.” On its return to the Sen
ate, they 44 refused to concur** in the amend
ment of the House.
There then were two propositions, onepre
i ented by the Senate, and one presented by
the Houre, and neither body had as yet
“agreed l * to the proposition of the other,
but nothing had transpired to show that they
would finally “disagree,’’that no otherpropo
fcltion could be found to serve as the ground
of a mutual agreement.
So much for the condition of aflalra on the
Sth, the day on which the Senate had voted
to adjourn. On the 9th, the Senate could not
bs supposed to entertain the idea of adjourn
ing on the Bth, and the House had sent in a
message, desiring that the Senate’s resolu
tion might be returned to them, as they wish
ed to reconsider their amendment. This
state ol aliairs continued on the 10th, when
tte Governor’s proclamation was sent in.
How say those who deny the force ot the
proclamation ? Can it be said there wasithen
* “disagreement” between the two houses,
in any sense, without reference to the par
liamentary signification ol the term. The
proposition ol the Senate had become impos
sible, and the proposition of the House that
body bad shown adisposition to recede from.
But if there was no (t disagreement” the pro
clamation was nnconstltnUOnaland nugatory.
But could the act ol the Legislature in dis
persing after the proclamation was received,
lend it a validity which it would not other
wise have. In- odier words, was the disper
sion of the Legislature under such circum
stances, an “ adjournment sine die, 1 * “ No,”
says the "Wabash men. Why ? Because, say
they, the Constitution has the following
danse: “ Neither House shall, without the
consent of the other for more than two
days.” Thus as they argue the discontinu
ance of the sessions of the General Assembly
for more than two days, could not, oven if it
appeared from the records to have been the
r* suit of the separate adjournment of each
hou«e, he treated under the Constitution as
adjournment, but must after the expiration
of the two' days be regarded as
the act ol the individual members,
since, constitutionally, neither house could
adjourn for more than that time without the
consent of the other, and no such consent was
given. But the records do not show that
cither house adjourned, and neither house
will be presumed to have done an unconsti
tutional act. Then it cannot be presum
ed that they adjourned, and the only
contingency which could have prevented the
bill from becoming a law, on the failure of
the Governor to return it within ten days,
cannot be presumed to have taken place. So
they argue it must be token for granted, that
the Legislature continued la being, without
adjournment, from the 11th to the 23d of
June, although it could be shown by outside
evidence, that during that time, not a single
zeemberwasinhis seat, that the doors of the
State House were locked, that the members
were absent without any intention of return
ing; and although the Journals for the same
period exhibit no traces of legislative pres
These I believe to be fairly stated, the two
main buttresses of the Wabash argument. In
putting it, I have “nothing extenuated, nor
set down aught in malice.” You and your
readers must judge for yourselves of its
force and applicability.

Outrageous Delay In laying tlio Ac

The Times' Washington correspondent’s
dispatch, about the *• Outrageous delay in
ftpd paying the accounts of deceased
soldiers,” was true. Is was in the Second
Auditor’s Bureau Itself that he was distinctly
informed that fourteen months would elapse
irom the presentation of claims before they
would be paid. It is therefore true that “the
heirs ol those who fell atQattyabarg.laJnly,
3503, may not hope to be paid till
November, 1864,” and it is equally true
that “the bare statement of the fact Is
the fullest censure of the scandalous Imper
