Thcro haj been a good deal of complaint in certain quarter! with oar Government on account of Its parchaso of tho Russian Possessions. We have defended from time to timo this treaty, which conveys to us Alaska, because, In our judgment, the purchase was clearly defensible, and be cause it was In point or fact, and on many grounds, Important to ns to hold this do minion. It has been said that the Czar was right glad to be rid of a territory that was nothing but a bill or expense to him and to his people, and that It yielded no adequate return for the outlay In its be half, which amounted to a burden noth ing more. The Russian people, It has been said, chuckled in their sleeves at the idea that, In this instance, they hare nitwitted the Yankee, with all his accustomed shrewdness. By this treaty they had rid themselves of a cold, unprofitable coun try, which produced nothing valuable ex cept a few furs, and they were compara tively of no account, inasmuch as their cost was such that only a trifling profit was realized upon them in any single j car. Why should they not accept eight or ten millions of dollars hard money and thus rid themselves of what was a burden f It is very easy to decry a measure of this sort, and to appeal to the prejudices of this people against it. Prejudice is one thing; facts and benefits arc quite another thug; and after a little, when prejudice shall have worn away, and practical re sults shotting the benefits and advantages of this purchase to us as a nation, the won der will then be that anybody should ever have opposed it. lint the question returns, why did Rus sia sell and why is the Czar and his home subjects glad to get this territory off of their hands ? It is supposed that these questions settle the mooted point in the controversy, and that if Russia was triad to free itself of this incumbrance, it was no evidence of wisdom or wise statesman ship on our part to pay a large sum of money for what was of little or no value to them Now, suppose wc admit that it was to the advantage of Russia to sell this dominion, and of course they so be lieved or they would not have made the conveyance, what, then, docs it follow that in our possession Alaska may not be made valuable to the United States t '1 he abo c reasoning is absurd. Under the ope ration of the laws of exchange and of trade we have daily demonstrations that what in tho hands of one party is comparatively of little worth often turns out to be in other hands a most valuable acqulsiton. But,this is tho stand-point frcra which some of our journalists and people look upon this purchase. Let us see how the Russians view it. They do not seem to think that there has been any overreaching In this transaction on either side. They regard it as a fair trade, and one that lias its reciprocal advantages, from which each party will derive its duo share. The v.,..u. v ... joo.M.r,., in, Boinc sen- nimn vihtc. unrtn Tula .tunait u,,,.i, ..... ........ ,.-..- ..r- ...... UUJV., nulu, m; qnote ns follows. The Journal s-us "That in looking at the matter some at tention is to be given to ulterior conse quences. Considering the matter in all respects this paper says it is a transaction of reciprocal advantage, which will proba bly result in aprontable reaction upon the commerce of our (Russian) ports in East ern Siberia, In giving a new value to pos sessions which we have not been able to develop according to their worth, and, finally, in assuring protection and ample satisfaction to the commercial and politi cal interests of the two contracting patties in tho Pacific Ocean." Here, then, in our judgment we have a precise statement in respect to the advan tages which are to flow to both parties to this treaty. One single remark more, and wc con clude this already too lengthy article. While this country was under the domina tion of the Russian Government emigra tion would not flow there. Under our rule it vwll be quite different. Tho tido of eml gration is tending hitherward in a resistless wave, and there is no point or pait of our vast domain that will not be penetrated by our own piople, and by the hardy, bold, and experienced explorer and pioneer of the Old World who shall come among us.

A draft of a constitution has been presented, mainly taken from Cushing's Manual, but has not been adopted. Tho only important idea advocated a in tho preamble, which reads thus: Acknowledo-tnor tho cood already ac complished through the national and in ternational traao organizations, we lect that a nerfect union of the whole into ono body cannot but be productive of good, and is utterly necessary before wo can expect to compete with the huge monopo lies now scattered broadcast over our land, compel them to acknowledge the ngats oi our claims, ana navo laoor meet Its just rewards. We admit that capital has its rights as well as labor, and aro willing to concede to it all that it is enti tled to, but at tho same timo wo will op poso with all our energies any encroach ments attempted to bo mado upon labor by it, and strive by all possible means to remove tbe burdens as are now laboring under. . Committees have been appointed on sending a delegate to Europe; on tho subject of taxation of United States bonds and uncultivated lands; on the disposition of the public domain; on sanitary meas ures; on tho judiciary; on convict Irborj and on political measures, but no reports have been made'. A motion was made by Mr. Keibs to throw to the breeze a banner inscribed with the name of tho "National La bor Reform Union of the United States." Ills constituents in Pennsyl vania had instructed him to work to this end in this Congress. Several gentlemen doubled tbe wisdom of taking a political step, and some expressed their astonish ment at tho attempt' to induce such a step. The motion, sprang upon tbo Con gress, has caused great excitement, and may occasion a very stormy timo when it comes un for final action.

Tho Ntorui lit I'cuusrlritulit. Weioiiuville, 1'a., Aug. '22 'Iho rain storm last night was one of great severity la this section. An Immense volume of water fell. Bridges and culverts aro swept away on the Northern Central Railroad, and communication between Baltimore and Ilarrisburg cut o(T. In the town of York the cellars on ele vated points aro filled. The streams are much higher than for years before. The Susquehanna canal is broken, and business entirely stopped. Last night's storm completed tho work begun last week by sweeping away culverts and em bankments then somewhat injured. '1 he corn crop has sustained no serious injury, however, thus far. Tho storm appears to have tended south ward, as very littlo rain Is reported to have fallen above at Ilarrisburg and Mid. dlctown. Thcro is every prospect of a continuance of tlm rain in Lancaster county. Trains on tho Pennsylvania railroad are Impeded on ascount of damigesto culverts. Work men aro repairing damages.
