©W tbe^ist inst. the Ho WW of
resentatives, after a long discussion,
passed the Niagara Falls Canal Bill,
for connecting Lake Erie with Lake
Ontario, by a large majority. By this
bill, the President is authorized to ap
point a topographical engineer, to be
associated with two civil engineers
and surveyors, and from them shall
determine and locate the route of the
canal. In order to accomplish the
early completion of the canal for mili
tary purposes, and to relieve the treas
ury, as far as practicable, from a large
expenditure of money, the President
is authorized to contract with any com
pany he may deem advisable, which
shall be hereafter chartered for such
purpose by the Legislature of any one
of the United States for the construc
tion of the canal, and to convey to
the company the right of way and all
lauds which the United States may
acquire under this act. The canal and
the Niagara river shall be a military,
naval, postal and public highway,
connecting Lake Erie and Lake Onta
rio, and shall be established as such
to the United States and the people
thereof forever. The canal is to be
free to the United States but not to
other parties. Sixty millions dollars
are to be loaned by the United States,
advanced and paid in bonds in denom
inations of $1,000 each, payable in
twenty years from date the interest
of six per cent, to be reimbursed to
the federal treasury from tolls. The
bill is yet to be acted on by the Sen
ate.
Col. North, arrested for fraud* on
the soldier's votes, has been released
by order of the War Department. He
was convicted by the Court that tried
him, but the pressure for his release
was irresistible.
A committee of ladies representing
14,000 working women of Philadel
phia, employees of Government con
tractors, waited on the President a
few days ago to tell of their sufferings
and wrongs. Simon Cameron, John
VV. Forney, and other Pennsylvanians
accompanied them. The President,
deeply impressed, sent for Acting Quar
termaster General mm! ai'wr
telling him tlie story he had heard, re
marked with feeling I shall consid
er myself personally obliged if you
can hereafter manage the supplies of
contract work for the Government
made up by women, so as to give them
remunerative wages for their labor."
The General replied that if it oould be
done it should be.
On the 30th ult., in the House, a res
olution was passed declaring that Vir
ginia, North and South Carolina, Geor
gia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi,
Louisiana, Texas, and Tennessee are
not entitled to representation in the
Electoral College.
On the 31st, in the Senate^ a resolu
tion advising retaliation npon rebel
prisoners was adopted.
On Feb. 1st the credentials of Sena
tors from Nevada were presented. Mr.
Stewart drew tlie long term and Mr.
Nye the short one.
On Feb. 2d, in the House, the Illi

vote of 11 to 68. It appropriates five
millions dollars in twenty year six per

two millions dollars to improve the
upper and lower rapids in the Missis
sippi river.
Feb. 3d, in the Senate, the Niagara
canal bill was referred to the military
committee. It is not believed that ei
ther of the canal bills will pass the
Senate during the present session.
The present century has known no
such scene as that witnessed in Wash
ington, on the 31st ult., when, by a
two-thirds vote, the House of Repre
sentatives exercised a purely constitu
tional right of saying there shall be
neither slavery nor involuntary servi
tude, except for crime, in these United
States. The grandeur of that vote
neither tongue nor pen can tell, and
men now close their eyes thinking
themselves in a dream. Slavery, so
far as Congress can do so, is abolished
in these United States The fiual an
nouncement of the vote was the sequel
for a whirlwind of applause wholly un
precedented iu Congressional annals.
The galleries led off, giving cheer af
ter clteer.
The members oil the floor then join
ed iu the shouting, throwing up their
hats and clapping their hauds, while
the ladies in the galleries waved their
handkerchiefs, and the very pages on
the floor joined in the demonstrations
of delight. The Democrats had been
very fierce in their demands for order,
when there had been some applause
over the affirmative votes of some of
their own number, and had very im
periously demanded the enforcement
of the rules, but the storm of applause
that now swept through the chamber
was too much to resist, and therfore
they sat silent and solemn in their scats.
Well may those whose memory stretch
es back but even five short years, to
the day when slavery held us fast
bound politically and socially, lift up
their hands at the prostrate bleeding
form of that Moloch whose brutalizing
foot has rested for more than half a

i From Gen. Sherman.
the steamer Cahawba, from^SfltfUi
Head, brings intelligence of highly
gratifying success attending thus far
the opening of the campaign in South
Carolina. One portion of Sherman's
army moved direct from Savannah,
Ga., and others, consisting of the 20th
Corps, moved from Beaufort, S. C., and
were both rapidly advancing against
Charleston, S. C. The latest intelli
gence from the army represents it to
be less than forty miles from Charles
ton. The rebels offered resistance at
every point from every available posi
tion for defence. Forage and subsist
ence were found in large quantities by
otir soldiers, as they followed the re
treating steps of the rebels.
The troops meet with some difficul
ty on account of the marshy nature of
the country between Savannah and
Charleston. One correspondent des
cribes it as nothing but marshes and
spongy rice-fields.
Gen. Foster was oo-operating with
the army under Gen. Sherman, and
the movements of our troops through
out South Carolina are but the precur
sors of a far more terrible and disas
trous campaign to the rebels.
The lines of Sherman were being
gradually contracted, and it was prob
able that no desperate resistance
would be made or battle offered until
our forces had reached within a few
miles of Charleston, where the main
body of the rebel forces would be con
centrated to make one last terrible ef
fort to save the State from the inroads
of Shermans conquering army.

STATE OF IOWA.
A¥l'TANT.GR]EKRAL'rt Or ICS,
Wavenport, Jan. 2$, 1865.
J}f1WpfrpJr
of Tuva,
After a careful settlement with the
War Department, and adjustments of
credits due us under previous calls,
together with recent enlistments, we
are gratified in being able to
HHIIOIKICP
that all demands by the Government
upon this State for troops have been
filled, and that we are placed beyoud
the liabilities of a draft under the im
pending call for 300,000 one year's
men.
We hare also effected a distribution
of the men f«»r which credits have so
far been given to the State, by which
each county will be credited with their
due proportion of these men, and the:
several wards and townships will have
approximate jtnstice done them.
Should another call be required we
shall assure the General Government
that the people of Iowa, as heretofore,
will meet it promptly.
And in view of the probabilities of
a further call we urge that recruiting
be continued with all possible energy,
and advise that our able bodied men
who can now assist the Government,
to avail themselves of this opportuni
ty to assist in giving the finishing
blows to the rebellion.
The efficiency of our vetei nn regi
ments demand that they should be
speedily filled up, and this is due as a
matter of justice to them, as well as
to the country.
We congratulate you upon a result
alike creditable to you and gratifying
to the
.State authorities who have co-op
erated iuyour efforts and excited their
utmost ability in the discharge of their
duties.
It is a proud reflection, that so far.
during this protracted war, you have
performed the highest obligations due
from a people to their Government and
country.
Promptly meeting every demand
made upon you for men and money
patiently submitting to all the embar
rassments attending a crisis like the
present, you have sustained the Gov
ernment in disaster and success with
unfaltering devotion, and fearlessly
vindicated its policy against all ene
mies and tradueers. Prouder still is
the record of your military deeds.
Among the first to rally in vindication
of our Hag, your soldiers have been
Constantly in the front, performing the
longest marches, participating iu the
severest battles, and bearing them
selves on all occasions with the most
conspicuous gallantry. Secure in the
admiration of a grateful country, our
State has won a high place in the pa
ges of history.
With this wicked rebellion rapidly
tottering to its end, and the glorious
work of universal emancipation so
near its final accomplishment, we may
begin to anticipate the blessings of an
honorable peace, the glory of a coun
try reunited, prosperous and happy,
and a Government which guarantees
liberty and justice to ail.
ReinemlH-ring the many thousands
of our brave inen who in distant States
are still bearing our banner towards
the enemy, let us invoke llim who is
guiding our armies through the strug
gle to continue llis mcrcilul uud prov
idential care over them.
Let us with all tlie means in our
power render our best efforts to sus
tain the old flag of the Union. Let us
give our best efforts to sustain the
Government in men and means. Let
us never forget the families of the
brave men iu the field. Let us do our
duty at all times and in all seasons,
under all calls, and under all demands
of the General Government, and we
shall show to the world that although
treason and rebellion may flourish for
a season, that its ultimate doom is de
feat, disaster, disgrace and humiliation.
