The Next Congress. , The terms of twenty-four Senators in Congress expire on tne 4th of March next fourteen Democrats and ten Republicans. At present the Senate stands forty-three Democrats and thirty-three Republicans. The Republicans must, therefore, make net gain of six in order to control the Senate. It is conceded that Senators Bayard, of Delaware, Whyte, of Maryland, Cockerell, of Missouri, Maxey, of Texas, and Hereford, of West Virginia, (Democrats,) will be re-elected, or will be succeeded by Democrats. Senators Dawes, of Massachusetts, Hamlin, of Maine, Baldwin, of Michigan, Paddock, of Nebraska, Sharon, of Nevada, Burn side, of Rhode Island, EdrSunds, of Vermont, McMillan, of Minnesota, and Cameron, of Wisconsin, (Repub licans,) will be returned, or will be succeeded by Republicans. A Demo crat will succeed Senator Bruce, Re publican, of Mississippi. A Repub lican will succeed Senator Thurman, ot Uhio. . 1 hus tar the losses are equal so far as elections have been held. The Republicans confidently expect to supercede Senators Eaton, of Connecticut, Kernan, of New York, Randolph, of New Jersey, and Wallace, of Pennsylvania. This will give the Republicans thirty-seven and the Democrats thirty-nine, counting Mahone, of lrginia, as a Democrat; and assuming that Jones, of Florida, and Bailey, of Tennessee, will be re elected. The Republicans are, how ever, contesting both of these States, and are hot without hopes of success. If Mahone acts with the Republicans the Democratic majority will be wiped out ; and should the Republi cans carry either of the States of Florida or Tennessee they will have a majority. British Gold at Work. "Gath," of the Cincinnati Enquir er, telegraphed to that paper the other day an instance where a New York importing" merchant had con tributed 100,000 to the Democrat ic campaign fund, the name of the donor being given. There is no doubt but the whole importing in terest is enlisting itself in the sup port of Hancock, in expectation of breaking down our present tariff. Heavy contributions may also be ex pected from British and French man ufacturers to aid in the work. "There's millions in if to such men, if they can but succeed in their en deavors. The Democratic policy of "a tariff for revenue only' is just what they desire. Such being the case, isn't it strange to see American workingmen co-operating with them in such a work the inevitable ef fect of which will be to impair if not destroy their present means of ac quiring a living for themselves and families ?

THE INSIDE HISTORY OF ORDER No. 40. HIS VIEWS ABOUT HANCOCK. PRESIDENT JOHNSON. WHAT THE LOUISIANA REBELS OFFERED FOR ONE DAY'S POWER. PHIL SHERIDAN. SENATOR CONKLING. Letter from Rev. C. H. Fowler, D. Galena, III , Sept. 21. I have just returned from a protracted call upon Gen. Grant. I went with Bro. Cramb, Grant's pastor. When we were introduced into his library we found him at his desk, writing. He rose, and calling my name said, "I have not seen you since we met at the Chautauqua Sunday School As sembly." He was very free and fall of talk. He talked about the polit ical situation, canvassing the coun try and the men with great freedom. I said to bim, 'T suppose everybody tells you that be wanted to see' you on the track;'" he said, 'Tes, many, but not everybody. If everybody had wanted to have seen me on the track I would have been there." I said, "I am sorry for the country that you are hot there ; not for your comfort or fame, but for the country." He sai 1, ''Not for my comfort: I am glad to be releassd from the care. There are three reasons why I would have accepted the nomination : "First On account of the char- acter of the men who urged it. I esteem their respect and confidence more than the nomination. "Second I believe I could have broken np the solid South. Many life-long Democrats in the South had given me the strongest assurance of their support, believing that I could deliver them from the evils of a solid South. Florida is a Republi can State, if they had a fair chance. The Republicans are so distributed that they oannot secure a fair count, except in the nortliwest corner of the State, where the negroes are chiefly centered, and wh?re the so ciety is like Georgia is really a part of Georgia. While I could have re ceived probably 200 or 300 more votes from tbe state than Oarheld will receive, those few are so located as to secure a iair count in mat northwest corner. These are the substantial reasons. "Third There is another partial reason. 1 believe tuat 1 coma nave induced, from my knowledge of the consulates, the enactment of certnin laws touching our commerce that would have given us control of much desirable commerce for instance, in Mexico instead of dealing with people who use only slave labor, and receive little or nothing in ex change." He next discussed Hancock with reat minuteness; lie said: "I have known bim for forty years. Ho is a weak, vain man. He is the most selfish man I know. He could never endure to Lave anyone else receive any credit. Though he received all the mention lrom Ins superiors lie deserved, and often more, lis was al ways displeased that he was not praised more, and that anyone else was mentioned at all. He is the most selfish man I know. He was a very good corps commander. He was ambitious, aud had courage and a fine presence ; but he is vain, self ish, weak, and easily flattered. He can not bear to hear anyone else praised, but can take any amount of flattery. "Down to lbO-i he seemed like a man ambitions to do Lis duty as an omcer. But in 18(51, when McClel lan was nominated, Hancock received one vote, and that greatly excited and changed him. He was so de lighted that he smiled all over. You could not even sit behinl hitn wit'u oit seeing bim smile. He smiled all over. It crazed bin. Before that we got on well. After that he would hardly speak to mo. I was working to enforce the laws of Con press, and he was working, for th Presidency. Perhaps he thought I did not praise him enoug but any way be hardly spoke to me. It was on my nomina tion that he was made a Brigadier General in the regular army. When II was made General, Sfantori told me it was a compliment to me, and that I could name the men to fill th vacancies in Lieutenant General ship and Major Generalship caused by my promotion. I nominated him for the vacant Major Generalship in the regular army. He acknowledged it manfully. He was a very fai corps commander, but was never thought of for any great place, When the Army of the Potomac was bunting for a commander it took almost everybody even came over into th'e West for officers but no one ever even suggested Hancock for the place. After he received that vote in 1SC4 he had the 'bee in his bonnet,' and shaped everything to gain Democratic and Southern favor He has watched, and planned, and waited, till at last be has received the Democratic nomination.'' "uenerai, do you thins he 13 in symp athy with the South ?" "Ho is crazy to be President. He is ambitious, vain, and weak. They will easily control him "Do you think, General, that bis celebrated Order No. 40 represents the direction of bis sympathies ; "Well, I wi'd give you the true inner history of Order No. 40. Con gress was striving to prevent An drew Johnson from undoing the re construction laws. Whenever Con gress passed a law Johnson bent his energies to defeat its enforcement, and would find pretexts to dod around it. Then Congress would pass another law to hedge bim np there. So it went on until Congress had taken from him ail control of the Generals commanding the seven districts of the South, except the power to recall them and appoint others in their places. These com manders could remove any civil offi cer of any grade, Judge or Governor. When I was made General, and they were determining my powers and duties, they gave the General, by accident, 1 think, or without seeing all it involved, co-ordinate power with these district commanders, and as I was senior it gave me authority. Gen. Sheridan was sent to the Department of Louisiana, covering Louisiana and lexas. lie is very shrewd and very able. If be is m charge of any field, and if there is anything in that field he ought to know, be is sure to know it. He i as able and vigilant an officer as the country has. He kept his eyes open learning rapidly the men who were not worthy to occupy their places, and discovering worthy and compe tent men to put in their places. He had a good list,' and a black list of unworthy officers, ready to change them in an hour when the time should come. He consulted me pri vately about it, and did nothing rashly. "The Legislature of Louisiana passed a law authorizing the issue of 57,000,000 of levee bonds, ostensibly for the levee. They conditioned their sale on their bringing to the State not less than So per cent, of their face. The Governor and three Commissioners were to. place the bonds on the market. But they soon found that the bonds would not bring more than 40 per cent. To avoid the law they invented the plan of borrowing money and using the bonds as collateral. They could borrow about 34 or 35 per cent, of the face of the bonds. Just at this juncture, to prevent these men from defrauding the State, Uen. Sheridan took off the heads of the Governor and Commissioners so quick that they did not know what ailed them, and appointed good men in their places. "For some reason- the remover! men were very anxious to be reap pointed. They employed Reverdy Johnson and another lawyer to work for them, agreeing to pay them S250, 000 if they were reinstated. This is a great deal of money for four men to pay for positions, unless there is some special gain in the case. Rev erdy Johnson came to me, but I was so stupid and stubborn that I could not be induced to reappoint them. He then went to Andrew Johnson and made his case and Andrew John son sent for me, and asked me to re instate those men. I refused to do so. lie said, "Reinstate tnem even if it is only for one day. I will prom ise that they will resign.' "I thought Johnson might not know of the motive why they were so anxious to be reinstated, and thinking I would do him a great ser vice in keeping him from a great blunder, I told him that 'one hour would do those men as well as one day,' and I unfolded their intent. But Johnson insisted on their being reinstated. I refused, and excused myself. "Johnson then removed Gen. Sheridan and appointed Gen. Han cock. He called Hancock to Wash ington to instruct him in defeating the laws of Congress concerning re construction. As soon as 1 learned that Hancock was in town, I called at his hotel instead ol sending tor him. I wanted to see him privately in his own room. I found him in his room, perhaps before he had his breakfast. I said, 'General, you and I are soldiers ; army officers. We have life positions ; we serve under successive administrations without regard to party. It is our duty to en force the laws of Congress. We are not responsive lor tne wisdom 01 tne , bility ; we simply enforce them.' He! said, 'Well, I am opposed to nigger! domination.' I said, 'General, it is ' not a question of nigger domination. ' Four millions of ex-slaves, without j ' I education or property, can hardly I is dominate 30,000,000 of whites, with all the education and property. is a question of doing our sworn duty.' He said, 'Well I'm opposed to nigger domination.' I saw that my only chance to influence him r?s by the .remnant of authority left in my hands. He was determined to nleasp trip FlpmnritiV T-i,-t. onl I .... bi.iuviu.ii. uaii niiu lilt SouTh - "Hpurpntn.in.i , J Governor and Commissioners that Gen. Sheridan had appointed. I in stantly telegraphed him not to ap point to office any men who had been removed, and to give me his reasons by mail for removing the men. He telegraphed in a long reply, costing the Government $210. his reasons. wumi uiiu ituiuitU lut I telegraphed him that the reasons were not sufficient ; to send me by man otner reasons, lie again tele graphed about the same points, only not quite so long, costing only S150. He telegraphed that if he could not have freedom to act, his usefulness would be destroyed, and that he would have to ask to be relieyed. I telegraphed him to revoke hisiorder. He asked Johnson to relieve him, as no one else could. That is the inner history and spirit of his celebrated Order No. 40. This order resulted in the loss of many lives. I know -of cases. lean give them. Ihe names and dates are within reach, so that no Demo crat can dispute them. Two brothers, ex-Confederate soldiers in Texas, took up for the outraged negroes and unionists in their neighborhood. They believed in fair play and fair speech. They were soon threatened, soon condemned, and trie order giv en among their neighbors for their death. They had to flee in the night. They found an old horse worth about 5io, and mounted him and rode as far as they could out of their neigh borhood. Then by hiding by day and traveling by night they finally got over into Mexico and to safety. After a long time, when they thought the matter had passed over, they re turned to another part of Texas, away from the thoroughfares, hoping to be let alone. 1 heir presence be came known, and an order for their arrest on the charge of horse stealing was issued. They fled to the mili tary camp and asked to be put in the guard house. An ex-rebel lawyer took up their case, made out the ap peal to Gen. Hancock, asking that they might be tried by the military authorities and not returned, as they could not have a fair trial where they were charged, nor any trial ; that the writ simply meant to murder them. This was sent to Hancock under' his Order No. 40. He referred it to the Governor of Texas. The Governor ordered their return. They were aken from the guard house and re urned. They were put in a dungeon, 1 tight log house, and before court day, after much abuse and suffering, they met death. A band of masked men surrounded the jail and burned it, watching against their escape, lhey were burned alive. This some ot the truit ot Order .No. 40, There are more cases that are abund antly proven. jriis statement that tne civil au thorities are supreme, is a truth ad mitted by all in time cf established peace. But I can demonstrate, as the facts I have mentioned show, that he did not subject the military power to the civil, but that he used his military power to overthrow the civil. "General, what can prevent the rule of such a man ?" Wre must elect Garfield. He is a great man. He has but few intel lectual peers in public life. He is every way worthy." "W hat if Hancock should be elect d?" then the North would submit quietly and watch closely. As soon as things began to go wrong, every Northern Legislature would be con ened and compel their representa tives to resign or resist the Solid South." 'Are you hopeful ?'' 'Yes. But I expect to witness the most gigantic frauds in Indiana and New York City. Pretexts will be sought for throwing out States or parts of States. If the election is thus thrown into the House, then Washburn, of Minnesota, will be thrown out. They are determined to seize the Government, regirdless of cost. I hope that many Democrats who will not change will take the alarm and stay at home." In speaking of Conkling he said : "I regard him as the greatest mind in public life, or that has been in public life since the beginning of the government. He has the advantage of having been trained from his very infancy. He had a father of unusual ability, who early taught him to rea son, and corrected his errors. He has grown to great proportions. I did not get acquainted with him while I was General of the Army. was in Washington four years and met him, but did not know him. You know some men chill you by their presence. You feel like keep ing yourself in reserve when they are near you. Others draw you out. They warm and cheer you. You immediately cheer up, and you are glad of- their presence. When I came to know Conkling, he was al ways welcome. His external bearing only external. He has true great ness and simplicity." A Trick Exposed. The Democrats of Pittsburg re cently placed the names of 150 Re publicans in the list of Yice-Fresi-dents of a Democratic meeting to con vey the idea that changes to that ex tent had occurred. Since the publi cation of the names the papers have been filled with repudiations. Every name thus presented who has voted the Republican ticket within five years, has promptly vindicated its Republicanism by promptly repudi ating its use. Catarrh Sometimes.
