A recent Investigation Into the political complexion of the Senate and the numerical strength of the two political partle therein estab mhes trio ractoriuch a small Republican majority as to render thettreaent illness of Senator Morton a subject of the deest Interest. mo following shows the truo amnion or tne Penato according to It political standing: itepuDiieaiia...,........ ..m.MM..M HH ...., t ItomorrBt . . ,.. , MHIH, H . w.. .- .. m .. ..... 33 Independent. ... , . . 1 VneTH Imi .. .. a Roiubllcii IJortiy,m..

S rrom tn sitwiiibe seen that the actual lU'DUD- llcan majority upon tho first day of the aosulon, irrespective of vacancies, w 111 be five over the democrat and Independents, ret It is by no mean certain that such a majority will be con tinned long; for ahould the Democrat 10 claimant from Ltmblana and Pouth Cnrotinn bo admitted, a is quite probable, and Senator Morton's Illuewi prove fatal, the appointment of a successor to tho latter' term by Governor Vt llllams, of Indiana, would have tho effect to deduct one Senator from the Republican side and add four Senators In all to tho Democratic aide, which would make tho strict party vote stand thirty cbrht to thirty elaht. It Is well known that Henators Tatienon of South Carolina, Conocr of nor id a, and Pponcerot Alabama, are not In a ver) happy frame of mind, owing toth action of the Admlnlitrallon In removing many of their friend and adherent!, and should such a result a Indi cated above be reached, either of thews Senator will bo tn a position to control the balance of power in the Henate, and dictate terms to tho Admlnhtra tlon. Ry this It Is not meant to Intimate tint either or these dtaiflictcd gentlemen proposo to sell them selves out, bnt the fact cannot be overlooked that any one of them has It within his power to cast the telling vote according to tho dictates of his discre tion. Again It dftcn no$natcrtalty change the oi tuition even If the Ulnei of Senator Morton doc not prove fatal, alnro It I not at all probable that he will have so far rccorcrcdby the middle of Oc tober next a to be able to take his seat In the Senato, w hlch fact would still deduct ono from the Republican majority, and leave the balanco of power with any two of tbe disaffected Senators Thu It will be seen that while the Democrat will find It Impossible tn organize the Senate upon a Democratic bast with their own strength alone. It Is nevertheless possible that such a remit might be acccompllfthed If any one of the disaffected gen tlemen, for any reason of hi own, ahould see fit to cast hi important vote with tho Democracy. imj suiijeet w now receiving' considerable alien tlon all around, audit Is aald that ccrtatn Demo cratic leader are so positive of tho arrangement! they will bo able to mako as to assort mont poll tlvcly that both Home of Congress thU fall will bo Democratic.

McCormlck rutlrc of hi own volition, against the expressed wishes of the President and Secretary of tho Treasury, and purely because the duties of tho position aro fro confining for a man who, like the Governor, ha for many years been accustomed to active outdoor occupation. The sudden transition to sedentary hab'ta has already proved detrimental to his health, and Gov. McCormlck had no other alternate 0 left bnt to resign. lie Informed Socrctary Sherman three month ago that ho did not think he could be atte to remain a bis lieutenant permanently, and his formal letter of resignation U dated tho 7th c f August, nearly three weeks before Mr. Sherman went on his Yt extern tour. In that letter Gov. McCormlck fixed ths Ith of October as the date of hi retirement, but at the special request of tho Pre! lent and Secretary ho has concluded to remain until such time at he can leave without causing lho Socrctari ihe slightest cmbarrouinentor Inconvenience. That tho mott harmonious social and political relation exist be tween Gov, McCormlck and tho PrutMent,Mr. sherm&n and the other member of the Cabinet there Is not tho rulnutett doubt, tnd It I 110 tcM certain that boveruor McCormlck will heap pointed to some prominent diplomatic mlislou probabt that of Russia, ahould ho foci incline 1 ta aceei t it. As has been prcv loudy asserted In thoe columns, Gov Mi Cormtck ho displayed executive qualities of tho hlghcxt ordi r during hi brief oc c u pane) of hi present position, and ho retire therefrom amid the sincere regret of all who hav e had business relations w tin him It I to bo hoiK.il that this excellent omecr w lit continue to grace his present omce until after lho meeting or Congress.
