If this were the an naunre'iucstt of Mr. Morrill's rsthemcnt from jiuUic Hie it would be an occasion of profound regret, in our Sn:e and through out tbe Country.

House ef Representatives, TrashingtonT'Jane fvl Fiom the Buriiugton Timet, Jane 11th. W e think Mr. Morrill, in declining tbe first rale posiiion be occupies in tbe House first rate tor his State and for himself has male a iftidd mistake. However "ks laborious" be petition of Senator might be, he could nrrr at tain the standing and inflatnee in the Senate, that n- has henorabtv achieved in the House In tbe Home, he is now a first-rate man ; to tbe Senate, be would begin (and rrraaiV) a third or fourth-rate man much lower than the rank already attained by Judge Poland and Mr. Ed mund wbo are both i,nr men, who hare doce more to sustain the reputation of ColUraer and I'oot (whose successor! they are) than their most anguine friend- expected. We bave noth thlng to say of our own Senator, Mr. Edmund?. He sjcaks tor himselt and satisfies his cotistitu eiits. But of Judge 1'oland we feel impelled to say that be has shown nim-elf, thus fir, a Ver mont Senator, "without tear and without re proach," not only true but very able in tbe discharge of the high duties ot his petition. Yc trutJ and believe, tbat the L (nslatnre will rati fj tbe apptiintment conferred upon him by Gov lillinsham. It M certainly no disparagement of Mr. Morril' to say that Jndee 1'oland is tar tvtirr cioa!i&n thao he is for the duty and res pons:bility ot .reprseenting Vermont in tbe Sen ate of the United States. Mr. Morrill is now in bis place; nonorable to his State and to bim selt Judge ?obmd is in ii place, alto hon orable to h s State and to himseit Air. .iorrai is at h .raeln the House and JuJee 1'oUnd is at home in tbe Senate We hope both will be kept al kome in their seTeral spheres ana tnat -Mr. l,,rnire declination will be withdrawn. We rannw there is no doubt that be can be return' ed to the House; wc suppose there is do doubt that be cannot be elected over Judge Poland, to the Senate, and simply because J udge Poland is the tetter man for the place, and ' ermont is in the habit of sendinc her best men to tbe United States Senate. We hardly know which if most noticeable in tbe above ; the cuolne-t which Mr. Mor rill is ndvistl to withdraw bis declinature for tbe House; the "cheek" whh which his mistakes'" are recited to himj tbe cbivi of whseb evidently ha been bis failure to consult the Burlington Times in relcxeuce to this whole business; the -'faint praise which Mr Edmunds is " damned" by com ratison ith his colleague ; tbe oeol assump tion that the Senate is " Ilrme" to Judge Poland, not ytt warm in his tctaporarv eeat the cooler asumption tbat Mr. Morrill, witn the eiwriepec of sii terrapin Congreea. and rcrsonal abilities which have given him the leadership oi tbe House and connected his name with more important measures then nnv tonncr representative of Vermont in Congress, will be but a third or fourth rate man" in the Senate; or the tuolost as sumntion of all that he cannot 1 deeied, because Judjre Poland is to be a candidate We shall not bandy words with tbe Time on such point. Our neighbor is entitled to his jirefoicnee for Mr. Poland ; hot be must allow ethers to hold tbeir belief tUt Mr. ili-rrill is ' tbe better man Or the j.laee." Wo do not think that bdief will be bbakt-n for 3 moment, in any men, by aught the Times has said. And we arc ti fectly content to loave it to the result, to conuBce the Tf'. ir it is not convinced alrtcdy, tuai M.-. Morrill eon be elected to tbe Senate. The Senatorial Question. EtntLisCTOX. May 81st, 1S66. .tftrj. Editors of Frte Press: la diseasing the respeelive etaiau ef Mr. Morrill and Judge Poland, to tbe pesuion of Senator from Vermont, it is remarkable, that the friends r Judge Pohnd have rwimly. harped upon two reasons, why Mr. Morrill should not be elected. 1st. Tbat it is tbe duty cf the State to keep Mr. SIorrBl in the petition which be so ably fills, as Chairman of oae of the most important committees in tbe House They onfess that he has acquired by bis industry aad talent?, a distinguished and enviable po sition as a leg'ulatcr, and has a national reputa tion far exceeding any of the VemKmt delega tion in Congress, but, they say, for that very reason, he should not be nronxted higher. Xow it seems to me when one re Sects that tbe same measures which are considered in one branch of Congress are and must be considered in the others, be must conclude that such reasoning is most ludicrously ateurf. They confess that Mr. Morrill has greatly distinguished himself in the House; and in the same breath deny that he cm maintain his reputation in the Senate, tinder precisely the same circumstances, work. ing in tbe same manner auu j j. uc oau.c pw. And they also say, because the Springfield Ite publican, and New York Triiune two papers which bave a wider circulation ind a greater political influence, than any othen warmly advocate the claims cf Mr Merrill, therefore, he should not be elected. Now. the Tribace has no interest but a rational interest in Mr. Morrill's election; and this ictsrstt it dots hv JS r .,. - 1 in common with every citixen of this country; and it is bat natural that they should advocate the claims of Mr. Merrill, who is so distin guished a leader in bis denartment in Con gress in preference to Judge Poland who is as yet an inexperienced legislator without national reputation. It seems to me that the fact that the New Vork Tribune a paper which repre sents the political sentiment of Vermont so truly, supports Justin S. Morrill, is a very strong arcument indeel in his fiver. In summi- g up the reasons which should in fluence Vennonters in selecting Mr. Merrill as Siiiator, rather than Judge Poland, these among others, suggest themselves Mr. Mor rill's experience in Congress. He has been there abent twelve years. Experience in legislation is as necessary at in anything else and this alone gives him great advantage over Judge Poland. Again, Mr. Morrill has gained his reputation, not as an eloquent speaker, but by his untiring energy and industry, and by tbe masterly grasp of the subjects with which he deals; and not less by his purity of morals, and steadfast de votion to the principles ef universal liberty. And whue conceding to the fullest extent the fine talents of Judje Poland, it is idle to con tend that he is great as a legislator, or that in this respect he is to be compared to Mr. MorrilL I maintain, that in the light of all that Mr. Morrill has done for Vermont, and the nation. it is simply an act of justice to promote him higher, and I believe Veraontcrs will do this. Mr. Morrill "has a strong hold upon the agri culturists of the State; they are the ruling class, and if tbe matter is left to them, I havc.no doubt as to tbe result of the coming election, nstwithstariding the predictions of the tap-room oracles to the contrary.

The pdiiple of Vermont can road the advice thus tendir -d tbem or not, as they see fit ; and n--wr. read ean take it er leave it alone. T:h e lectijn of senators by any State is a matter of national interest and importance. HiJ it i ridiculous to suppose that the dis cussion of candidates is to be confined with in Stale limits. And it ie certainly a signi ficant fact in tb is case, and one that ought to have its doe weight in deciding the ques tion, that public sentiment out of tbe State, so for as it has yet found expression, is un animous in favoring tbe elevation of Mr. Moiriil to the Senate. If Vermont chooses to deckle differently, she has a perfect right to do so ; the final decision rests with her entirely, but people and papers elsewhere vim nave tueir say, ana it is poor policy, and bad manners besides, to call them hard names because they do so. From the Brattleboro Record.! The inexplicable course of tbe Vetmont Pkceniz in urging Mr. Morrill's renomina tion for Representative seems to aflord the supporters ot Judge Poland a crumb of gratification. Tney arc quoting the remarks of toe Aermx with the evident wish of making it appear that the constituents oi Mr. Morrill do not ask for his promotion. But the PHtntx in now.se reflects tbe feel- ing or the voters of Windham County upon tins subject. Mr. Morrill e constituents in this part cf tbe District are very nearly unanimous in their support of him for tbe Senate. Firm what we see in some ol the papers, and from what we occasionally bear said, wejude it is taken fcr granted tbat Mr. Morrill is not to. be a eandslatc aain for tbe Douse of Repre sentatives. But we have seen no di finite state ment nf T Ti t 1 i t j 1 in n.inf itn.tiAnfcl n, liim M r. Morri-'l has never signified to us anything , ana especially when as a whole, this plan cf the kind.

Tbe speech of Mr. Poland, in the Senate, June otb. fills five columns in the Congres sional liofe. It contains little tbat is new on tbe sobject. and, as Mr. Poland remarked at the outset, could not be expected to, af ter six months' discussion of the subject ; but it is a s Iraightforward defence of the Reconstruction amendment?, is clear and Etiong in its RepuHicantfm.and as a whole. U a sound and excellent speoeb. Upon the question of State suicide, Mr. Poland states that for one, he has not been able to sec as clearly as some, anything so illogical and absurd in tie doctrine that the seceded States forfeited their rights as States, and bpsed into the condition of territories. He does not, however, present or press that as bis virw of the cose ; but conceding tbat secession did not destroy the corporate existence of the rebel Statce, as a legal es sence, be maintains tbat their connecti m with tbe"Union was severed, and that before they can resume their old places, loyal State governments must take the place of the dis loyal ones, and then tbe legal connection between tbem and the general Government must be restored by some department of tic government That department, he goes on to show, must be the law making power, and he stoutly maintains tbe right of Congress to impose any conditions upon tbe return of the Southern States, that may be just and nec essary for tbe safety of tbo nation. Such conditions be finds in the proposed amendments of the Constitution, and these be considers and supports in detail. Tbe first section, Lc considers to embody the very spirit of our system of government, end to be desirable as placing beyond doubt the power of Congress to uproot nil the par tial Slate legislation whith was aimed at in the passage o! the Civil Rights bill. In rcltrence to the second section, he main tains tbat to base representation on the num ber of voters in each Statcis, manifestly unjust as long as the rules of suffrage are different in different States, and even if there were but one rule of suffrecc for it all would still be unjust to the older Siatts, which Bupply the settlers, most ol them males, for the newer 1 I States, and consequently have fewer voters I for their population. It is neither just nor I I safe, cither, to allow the late Slave States to ! pratnt raOitary custody. In this the govern come into Congress with a larger represcnta- I ment would not interfere, as it wo aid then be a tion than before, based on the blacks who ' t cannot vote, and there is reason to fear that i in sach case, with tb bid of the Northern J Democracy, tho national debt may be rcpa- oiatcd. With tb. adoption ef .hi. amend. ' mcnt Mr. Poland does not fear tbat tbe gov- events n be placed in disloyal hand,, wnciner trie Jwutnem btates grant tuflrage to the colored men, or not. He adds : " Does this amendment do justice to the colored people ol the South? Mr. Presi dent, I am sorry to feel compelled to say that I do not think it does. I cannot feel satis fied with a scheme of reconstruction ol these rebel States which gives no direct and imme diate benefit to the only class of loyal people livmz in them. 'When I remember how loyal and faithful these people ever proved ; how they fed, clothed, concealed, and guided our prisoners who escaped from rebel prisons and starvation : how faithfully and truly they brought us information and guided our troops ; and more than all, how gallantly they fought by the side of our men, and bow nobly they yielded their lives to save the na tion, 1 teel tbat something more direct should be rrontcd to and done for tbem. I should be much better satisfied il the right ot sullragc had been given at once to tbo more intelligent cl tbem and such as bad served in our Army. But it is believed by wiser ones than myself that this amendment will very soon produce some grant of suf frage to them, and tbat the craving for po litical power will ere long give them univer sal suOrage. Such I know to be the opinion of many intelligent Union men of the South with whom 1 have conversed. I trust tbe result may be at they predict, and tbat the day may come srien in all the nation, as in my own free State, the law shall make and know no difference between men on account of race or color. Believing tbat this anicnd- I mcnt prutiably g..eo as far m favor of suf- Irsgc to the negro as is practicable to accom plish now, and hoping it may in the end nc complisb all I desire in this respect, I slwll vote lor lbs adoption, although I should be glad to go farther." The third sectiaa, depriving the Southern leaders of tbe right to bold office, Mr. Po land considers linicnt and just, and believes it will tie accepted by the Southern masse, as an easy atonement. The other two propositions ol amendment arc also declared sound and cxdient. and the speech concludes as follows . Mr President, it has l-eta said that all these proposed amendments, as a whole, as a general plan for the restoration of these vM DOt tc acceptable to tbem. and , that thcJ not do Jt willingly ; and il j they adopt them at all it will only be under I & &luu 01 uueiuiuu auu m-cuuse iuev cannot otherwise obtain what they seek ; and that wc have no right to secure even proticr amendments in tbat way. It seems to me that thi-plan,nsa whole, i-i characterized by S3 much moderation and forbearance that it cannot fail to commend itseli to tbe people of these States so that they will readily and freely give it their sanc tion. But, sir, if it be true tbat tbey are not satisfied with it, and will only adopt it to secure their return to share in the nation al iiowcr, I am so well satisfied that this plan contains nothing but what wc have a right to insist on, and which justice to tbe aation requires, that I should feel no hesita tion in saying kindly, but firmly, "You must acquiesce in these amendments bclorc we will permit you to take part in the administra tion of the General Government." There is nothing new in this, cither. Did these States accept the amendment abolishing slat err willingly a much more important matter to them than anything contained in these propositions ? Did they declare their ordinances of secession null and void or de clare the rebel debt invalid willingly ? Wc know they did not. but only because the President requited it of them? Has any one ever blamed tbe President or thought he was unjust to tbe South in these requirements ? u the people of the nation, through their representatives, believe that something more ehtmid ,ustJj taind, ther have the I cqaal right, and should exercise the right, to demand it. Wc 6bould not exercise our power to make any unjust demand, but what is just and right to exact we should be wanting in our duty ii we fail to have done. Mr. President, it is a matter of great sat islaction to me that at last, after so much and so anxious deliberation, it appears so probable that Congress will be able to pre sent a plan upon which the requisite majori ties of both Houses will be able to arrree. uieai uiucrenrce nave cxisteu anions our selves ; many opinions haye had to yield to enable us to agree upon a plan If wc are so fortunate, as as I trust wc shall be, to pass ' tnCF propositions by the requisite majorities, j although they may not in all respects corrcs- I0" WI,h tl)C T,CWB 01 'he i'reeidsnt, I be- Iieve be will feel it to be bis patriotic duty io acquiesce in lue pun propoeeu, ana give his powerful influence and support to pro cure their adoption. "We arc all aiming at tbe same grand result, the diflerencc it rath cr in the choice of modes and means to at tain it. Wc are all, I trust actuated by the same high motives of patriotism, and all de sire to sec nil these States again acting hsr inonioubly together. In a matter of such grave imjoitancc, with no precedents for our action, with no guide in the Constitu tion but that furnished by its general spirit and purpose, it is not singular tbat great diversity cf ideas should exist. In such case opinions must yield to some extent, or else nothing could lie agreed or Fettled, and all would be anarchy. I will not allow my- I jf to believe that these measures will not, under the circumstances, receive the sincere support of Ihe President, although he may not bclicte tbem jerlccl. Mr. President, there ore men who believe we ore now on the verge of ruin, and that we shall never again become a united, and harmonious people. But, sir, I Mictc tbey arc either cowards or croakers, who always se-e the dark side or the pictutc. For my self, I sec no such cause of alarm. To me everything 1 oks hoiiefull for the future. Wc have just gone thiough the greatest war the world bas ever seen. And unparalleled social revolution bas taken place in the South three or four million people turned from slaves into a free people. That in so short a time after these great events so much oi order and quietness and obedience to law should exist is astonishinc. The world never witnessed its parallel. Wc did not expect it ourselves before tbe close of the war, cut now wc are impatient and troubled liecausc it is not better. Time alone will smooth and allay the stotmy waves of excitement and passion caused by such momentous events To me, eir, a greet and glorious future is opening for our country. Slavery, the great Wight and curse that bas hunc upon us, ie ended for ever. Tbe South, so long retarded by it. will Lc opened and expanded by the influence 01 free labor and free institutions. A new agriculture will enrich and beautify her fields. Commerce and manufactures will build up busy towns and carry thrilt and wealth aloDz her great mors. All causes ot discord between North and South being over, wc shall become a homogeneous nation of "free men, dwelling together in peace and unity. United and wholly free, our power would awe the world. I hoje to live to seo tbe dav when all will agree that this great war which has destroyed slayery, severe and burdensome as it was to this generation, was yet one of those ''blessings in disguise" sent by the Great Ruler of oll,which proved the very salvation of the nation.

The Fenian bubble- on our Northern fron tier burst on Saturdar and has already main Iy disappeared. The leaders are under ar rest.

The scheme of an in vasson of Canada could never have been ssr iously conceived by the most reckless Fe nians bad it not been lor tbe course of the Canadians and of tbe British government during our war. As the case stands the failure of tbe icra sion Is due not to tbe Canadians ; but to the United States Government, which in reprea- ing the attempt has done tbe beat service i: could render to all engaged in it. Tic result of this operation will be, wc fancy the entire collapse of tbe wnole Fenian business. It is going to be very hard work after this, for Head Centre Stephens, or any- bidy else, to sell Fenian bonds, or enlist re cruiitt for service in Ireland or anywhere. The Brotherhood in Ireland, who have thus far. they say, received very little aid from this side tbe water, will receive less in fu urc Tbe bore of a risiDs there without outside assistance, bas probably disappeared from tbe breast of the most sanguine Irish man, and Fenianism everywhere may hence forth be counted as a tbinc of the past, and will soon be forgotten. The I'culans. At two o'clock on Saturday mornins Gen i'peur called a Council of War, which was not long in reaching the conclusion that the invasion must be abandoned. At nice o'cleck. the men remaining three or four hundred having taken French leave during the afternoon and night previous were drawn up in a body and addressed by Spear, who announced the failure of the expedition, and dismissed his forces, who were not slow to leave. The ammunition was placed in a one-horse wagon and brought across the line, where it is said it was deposited in a lam, and probably has before this been seized by the LT. S. troops. Tbe men who had arms fired their pieces in tbe air, and all without attempt at military order, took their way back to St. Albans. The mass ol them arrived there Saturday afternoon, and to the number or SOO, were furnished trans portation to tbeir homes that night, each man being required to sign a parole acknow ledging himself a prisoner to the U. S. Gov ernment, and promising to abandon Fenian ism. The expedition penetrated bjit a mile or two into Canada, and there was no fighting done, with tbe exception of two little skir mishes, one at Frcligbsburgh, already rcnort- ed, and one near Pigeon Hill on Friday, be tween about twenty Canadian volunteers un der a Captain Kemp and a Fenian outpost, of about the same number.
