Tub llttcenth week of tho present session of Congress begins nt noon to-day, with n fair prospect that the nvallablo stock of bills will bo considerably augmented before Muht. Oitomtion to secret sessions of tlio rti.nto toconlder nominations Is growing rn Idly. The plain common sense of the i Ktintry Is sntislled that there Is no need of much scciccy at either end of the avenue. Ir Senator Wilson has been keeping his car to tho ground he has undoubtedly heard of the resolution unanimously adopted by the Iowa legislature condemning the pro pond Increase of rates ou fourth-class mall inciter. It Mr. Cleveland means that his veto ucord as President shall be numerically ifiual fo tho veto record ho left nt Albany, Corgi ess may look for about ono hundred nr.d forty-seven more of theso efforts beforo .March I, l'-S'.l.

The first step In tho direction of naval reform should bo tho peremptory discharge of such officers as hnvo been placed on tho retired list on account of physical disability resulting from their own bad habits, or by reason of their uniltuess for promotion through neglect to qualify themselves therefor.

If tho Republican party has not become Incapable of utilizing tho manifest advan tage of the present political situation, It will soon take tho field against it divided, dis gusted, demoralized opposition with tlfo Intcnt to carry tho fiftieth Congress its a preliminary to tlio election of President Cleveland's successor. Inasmuch as the record of tho party from 1SV to H-Ml elves the Ho to tho theory that n slnglo national reverse has Impaired Its fighting capacity, Ihcro Is uo reason to doubt that It will promptly and unitedly respond to the call of duty, will avail Itself of tho abundant capital which tho De mocracy has, placed at Is disposal, and wilt show, In tho elections of this year, that It Is destined to talto chargo of tho govern ment In 1SS9. Tlio victory which tho Democrats won In H-S4, by suppressing majorities In various states nnd by making falso pledges to Mugwumps In Now York, has left tho vic tors weaker than they would hnvo been If they had achieved their customary failure. They arc divided on every Issue, quarrel ing on every rpicstlon, nnd they are pro foundly discouraged. It Is n fact that prominent Democratic senators and representatives aro expecting defeat this year. Many of theso gentlemen frankly conccdo that their party is hope lessly demoralized. Somo of them go so far as to express the opinion that there will be (iilto ns many years between Cleveland find bis first Democratic successor as there was between Buchanan and Cleveland. Democratic organs deal In gloomy forecasts. The wholo party has a chronic attack of tho doleful dumps. Thocausesof their demorali sation ate not eusccptlblo of removal, for they aro radical differences on vital questions. It Is tlmo for the Republican party to bo putting Itself In readiness for tho work that Is close at hand. The first step should bo thomtigh organization. The Republican congressmen should tako tho lead. I.uulftliiiin Sugnr Interest. Messrs. Dymond, McOall, Wnrmoth, Wll klueon, and l'uos, members of tho Louisi ana Sugar Planters' Association, accom panied by Commissioner Column and Prof. Wiley, appeared before tho Homo commit tee on ngrlculturo Saturday to advocate an appropriation to complete, thu diffusion experiments on sorghum and to have tho process applied also to tho tropical sugar cane of their state, which has not ns yet been done, though n largo amount has be:n appropriated for tho purpose. Tho planters, In their petition, stato that tho Kuropoan governments havo expended largo amounts In the application of diffusion lu the manu facture of sugar from beets, and express tho belief that "Its grand success there can bo duplicated hero In our sugar cano In dustry, and as Its representatives we appear before you to ask you to appropriate tho necessary mcaus, estimated nt $100,000 by tho department of agriculture, to complete the experiment in diffusion begun in Kan sas, and which wc desire to havo also tested with tropical cano lu Louisiana." Commissioner Coliuan advocated tho appioprlatlon admlttcu that mistakes, whlihmust necessarily accompany nil ex perimental woik, had heretofore been made, but felt assured one moro season's work would accomplish tho desired result. Prof. iley gave an account of his recent trip to Europe to Investigate tho manu f actme of cano sugar by diffusion lu south ern Spain, and fully confirmed all state ments mado by tho National Rei'UDLi can, showing the superiority of American made itnehlncry over tho best that can be produced In Europe. The American machlno that was tried In Kansas cut a chip so well suited to diffusion that It readily yielded OS per cent, of tho total sugar lu tho cane; while the extraction obtained by tho French mnchlno used In Spain was about 0 per cent, less, and much slower, In its operation. It Is to be hoped that wo shall hear no moro propositions forpurchasluginaclilncry for government uso abroad cither marine engines, torpedo boats, or diffusion machin eryor, indeed, any other kind.

Tho New York Tribune of yesterday con tains an Interesting sketch of Mr. l'arnell by ono of bis fellow-prisoners lu Kilmaln ham, which might bo studied with profit by those few-and-far-betwecn Americans who are unable to discover anything but sec tarianism In the movement for homo rulo 1 In Ireland tho grandest nud most Import ant movement thntthe world has seen sinco war brought tlio victory which tho antl slavcry agitators of tho United States sought and expected to achieve by peaceful meth ods. Tho Tribune correspondent rightly con cludes that "tho most significant fact" In Mr. rarnell's ca'reer Is his success In Ulster, whero his followers havo carried a majority of tho teats. Tho correspondent says; It is not easy for pcoplo outsldo oi Ireland to understand how great ns this victory. Tho Orangemen wero wont to claim this provlnuo as exclusively their own and iintbiiallnnal to tlio core Tlio break was first mado in county Monnhan, In 1W3, whero n bye-oloo-tlon was held, beforo tho frauehlso bill was passed. Sir. l'arnell took down Mr. Ileal)', already member tor Wexford, nnd had him elected over both w big und tory. Mr. l'arnell wasbnppy nud prouiLthatday. I was by his sldo in tho Monaghan court homo when tho poll was declared. Tho great laudlordi nnd tho aristocracy were around their defeated caudldato (a Dublin lawyer named Monroe) bewildered and dismayed. For a moment tho phlegmatlo Mr, l'arnell forgot his habitual calm. As ho hornmo excited his faco grew paler nud he Matted au liiJbcrimluato hand baking uftn his lieutenants, u to pressed In tin him fiom eicrysldc. Tho people wero simply wild with Joy, and nierybody felt 11 only needed nil e.itou..Ion ol'lhe Irancliuotu bring lister Into Hue with Ireland. Lvcrv body was right.

When his birth, soolal nation, reunions lies, education, and traits of character nro considered, the ticrcss which lio has nchlcicd Is nlmost Incomprehensible. Thoso who bcllevo In tho doctrlno of special providences sco In l'arnell, ns In Washington or Lincoln, a tn.tu especially designed and commissioned for tho great w ork ho has undertaken. Those who hold that "tho Universal Canto acts not by partial but by general laws" try to fitul in tho character of tho men and tlio facts of tho situation it satis factory explanation of tho "almost Incom prehensible success which ho has achieved." Ir ono of tho two or thrco colored Demo crats residing in tho District of Columbia were to file nnd press an application for a federal appointment In somo Important city say Albany, lluflalo, or Rochester In tho Kmplro state tho country might bo put In n fair way to learn whether the sauco that Is deemed sultablo for tho Co lumbian gooso is esteemed tho proper dress ing for tho New York gnudcr. TiiEnnnalsof this nation, rich ns they aro In records of heroism, will bo searched In vain by him who seeks to find tho story of a more heroic death than was that of K. y.

"Come, O'Doheity," said an Irish mem ber of the hoiic of commons, "don't bo too proud of your penal servitude. O'llrlen, who sits next to you, was sentenced to death." Mr. .lustlii McCarthy, In his letter to the Jlernlil by tho Mnckny-Ilennelt cable, re minds us of some of tho stlrrlngcxperlenccs of Irishmen In tho past. Mr. O'Uohcrty, to whom he refers, took his scat In tho house on Thursday, and was greetod with such cheers ns can come only from Irslh thioats. Uo has had n remarkable history. In lS4tho wrote letters denouncing the courso of England toward bis native land. They were by no mcaus tame In rhetoric. On the other hand, It was ns lurid as their logic was strong. Ho was arrested, tried three times, and convicted at last, becauso tho castle would listen to no other verdict than guilty. Sentenced to tcu years' transporta tion to Van Dlemen's Land and loaded with chains, he bore bis exllo ns best ho could. A pardon came, but he did not care to re turn. Now, at tho ago of G2, ho takes his seat In the llrltlsh parliament amid tremendous thecrlng by his countrymen. Sinco ISIS wonderful changes havo taken place. Tho O'llrlen referred to was also con victed of treason nud sentenced to bo hiinged, drawn, nnd quartered. Little won der that when under circumstances so altered these two men took their scats sldo by side nt Westminster a fellow member should cry out to O'Dolicrty i "Don't bo too proud of jour penal servitude. O'llrlen, wl.oslls next to you, was sentenced to death." Tho Incident Is full of significance and nlmost painfully Interesting. Dr. Gnrnvtt'H Dculli.

KiiiTon National Rr.rum.tcAN s Pleaso nllow mo a word in your ctduini lu favor of tho passage of tlio Rl.ilr educational bill, which has twlr o passed through tho United States Senate, and which Is now pending In the United Statcsllousoot Representatives. Considering tho growth of public opinion, the generous expressions of men of both parties, I had hoped, until a fow days ago, that thlsbcucllccut and lnuch-nccdeil meas ure would meet with no material resistance lu Its passage through thu House, especially as it met with so lltllo on Its final passago through the Senate. Rut from rumors, too well founded, I urn now led to fear that my hopes havo been altogether too sanguine. ctnniung, as i navo always stood, ami alwois expect to stand, tho frlond of every public mcasuro in nny wlso calculated to advance tho Interests nnd Imnrovo tlio condition of tho long-enslaved people of tho south, I am wnrmly lu favor of tlio speedy passago of tho Hlalr educa tional bill, not becauso It will elo all that should be done for tho Illiterate whlto and coloicd classes of the south, or all It prom ises to do, but ns n step In tho right direc tion. In my humble Judgment a great mis tako will bo made, a great wrong will bo done, and a great opportunity postponed. If not entirely lost. If this bill docs not pass tho House. To mo it Is a bill In tho Interest of both races, nnd Is of n tendency to do nwny with tho spirit of casto nnd of sectionalism, and to promoto tho general welfaro by diffusing knowledgonnd enlight enment In tho darkest corners of tho repub lic, whero It Is moro needed, nnd whero tho people arc tho least nblo to secure such knowledge for themselves. In advocating tho passago of this bill I do not ovcrlooltho fact that,admlriih1o nslt Is In Its object and carefully ns It Is framed, It may fall of Its object, so far ns tho colored pcoplo of tho south nro concerned. No colored hnnd will probably havo anything to do with tho disbursement of tho millions given by government In this bill, mainly in tho namo nud for tho benefit of colored people. Like tho I'cabody fund, tho Slater fund, tho rrccdman's llnnk, nnd many other Institutions nominally established for tho beuctlt of theso people, tho hands aro white that handlo tho money. Tho Hermans have a proverb that, "Thov who havo tlio cioss will bless themselves,'' nud thcro Is nothing lu tho history of tho Institutions named, or In tho history of others that might be named, to contradict this proverb. Hut, wliilo I commend tho keen vlgllanco aud scrupulous fidelity of Senators Allison, Logan, nnd Edmunds In taking caro tint the people In whoso Interest this mcasuro Is mainly asked, and freely granted by tlio United States Senate, shall havo u fair share of its benefits, and while, from past experience, I cnuuot hopo that. It this bill shall becotno n law, It will In every Instanco bo faithfully nud honestly ndmlnistcrcd, still, even If only tolerably so administered. It cannot fail to bo n blessing to tho colored pcoplo as a whole. Something must bo trusted to tho spirit of justice, honor, nnd fairness of the southern people. They will ultimately sco that It is irood to bee honest nnd true, ovcu to thoso they hnvo formerly enslaved and plundered, and whom they still defraud of their po litical rights. Rut asldo from possibilities, nnd even probabilities as to tho administration of this 111, should It becomo n law, It will of Itself have an educational influence, nnd turn the mlndand heart of tho nation in tho right direction. It will be, nt least, a recognition of n great nntlonnl duty toward n people to whom an unmcnsurcablo debt is due. It will tell that people, and all others, that the nation has tho disposition, it not entire nullity, to do tlio negro right nnd Justice. It will bo In tho line of peaceful nndlnof fensivo reconstructIon,and will help to heal tho wound left by tho war, by holding out n helpful hand to tho poor of tho lato con federate 6tatca. To tho celebrated saying of (Jen. (I rant, "Let us havo peace!" wo must add, "Let us havo education I" Tho negro needs It, tho lllltcrato whlto needs It, the nation needs It. If tho national gov ernment had tho power to put down slnvo Insurrections, hunt fugltlvo slaves over stato lines, protect slavery lu tho states whllo slavery existed, it has tho power and thu light to assist In the education and Im provement, of tho newly-emancipated and enfranchised citizens, now that liberty has becomo tho base lino of tho republic aud tho fundmcntal law of tlio laud, Neither of tho great political parlies can afford to let this educational bill fall, and, least of all, can the great Republican party, tho party of justice, liberty, nnd civiliza tion, afford to let it perish or be postponed to a more convenient season. 1'iiEnr.nicK Douglass.
