THK HEKALD. &4J our Heft. The lejjinlaluro adjournod last Monday. Up to Monday rnorti tbo Governor bsd tf oca ono hundred and ciglity-Svo bills and tbiity concurrent resolution; but a large namW of hills fro still in the hinds of the Uovnrnor or the enrolling clerk. In tbo senate during tho current res- sion, there were introduced 428 hills, of which number 19G wero passod, and only 128-ere concurred in by tho houso ; wero rejected, tearing 128 bills unre ported and buried in the hands of the ,ttanding committees. In the houso 951 bills have been in troduced, a largo portion of which have nover seen tho light, having been con signed to that tomb of tho Capulcts, tho committee on unGnished business. Tbo houso committco on claims havo post poned some twenty private claims, amounting in tho aggregate to about $50,000. Tho hobso failed to pass tho acnato congressional apportionment bill, which leaves tho districts as tlioy were, and ne cessitates the election of four congress men at large. This action on the part of the tower branch meets with" tbo'ffpproba tion of all fair minded citizens, for a more partisan division than tho ono con certed by tho Radical senato was never attempted. By tho luiluro to redistrict the state, wo will certainly gain four Democratic congressmen, as there can be but little doubt of tho political complex ion of the state. Tho senate adjourned until the 21st of May, when it meets to try tho impeach r.icnt cauao of l'hilandcr Loess, jud(ic of tho Fifth judicial circuit of the state for misdemeanors in office. Tho Liberal Republicans of Nashville have issued an address to tbo Republi cans of Tennessee, requesting prompt action in tho various counties and cities to havo Tcnnesoeo properly represented by accredited delegates to the Liberal Republican convention at Cincinnati, May 1. Tho address states that it is not contemplated that any vital principlo of our national organization will bo en dangered or surrendered, hut while as serting tho rightfnl sovereignty of the Union, a full measuro of emancipation, civil rights aud impartial suffrago, will demand general amnesty and recognize the fact that tho new issues before the country are to be met in a broad national spirit of patriotism. It will doubtless bucceed in perfecting an organization that will be creditable in restoring the harmony of thu Union and establishing reforms in public affairs now imperatively demanded. Tho address is signed by J. Lawrence, (J. 1. Thurston, J. V. I'ara more, J. M. Thatcher, Sauiuol J. Little, Oeo. henstem, and John Ruhm. 'I he last named was recently secretary of the Republican statu ezecutivo committco. Nashville will sond a full delegation to Cincinnati, and tho Nashvillo Reunion and Reform association will bo rcpre scntcd at tho Cincinnati Rounion and Reform mass meeting. The Republican's J c flora on City special, of tho 28lh ult., says : A Dem ocratic caucus was held to-night of the mombers of the Benato and house ami leading Democrats from different parts of tho etsto. P. J. Pauley and Mr Gramlull, members of the Doinooratio Central committee, wero present. Mr, Brown of Howard, chairman. A com mittco was appointed to consider tho ubject of representation and report to tho caucus. They agreed upon reoom mending St. Louis as tho placo for tho eonvontion to elect dtlcgates to the National convention, to bo held as soon a, a call was made by the National com mittee luo convention to nominate Btato officers was rccouiuiondod to bo held at Jerturson in August. Consider able debate followed on the ratio of representation, but it was finally resolved to recommend that tho state comittco fix at ono delegate for each representative district, under tho apportionment of 1870, and ono for each 500 votes or frao tlon over 250 votes cast for Rrown in 1870, This will give a convention of about 325 members and afford pretty equal representation. Mr. August Belmont is tho Chairman ef the Nutional Democratic Committee. That Committee is the ono that is en trusted with tho power of calling tho National Dcmocratio Convention. Mr. Belmont has addressed a letter to the Hon. V. W. Horn, of Wiscoiuin, in which ho expresses tho opinion that no action should be taken on the part of tho committee, or any agitation of tho sub ject pf holding the National Convention of tho party, until after the Liberal Ro publican Convention at Cincinnati have mot, deliberated and adjourned. Ho also eays that tho committco would probably meet, when it did meet, in somo westorn eity not yet agrood on.

At tho municipal election of Cincinnati, the Democrats were successful by an av erage majority of at least 2.000. Tbo Louitana Journal records the death of another of the old citizens of Piko county, Judgo James Martin, aged 84 years. Tho St. Joseph municipal election went Republican ; Chillicotho Demo cratic; Clinton Democratic ; Springfield a tittle mixed, three Democratic council men out of fivo beine clotced. The municipal election of St. Louis, last Tuesday, resulted in a rousing Dem ouratic victory. Tho Republican says that not a single Grant man was returned to the city council. The election in Connecticut last, Mon day, resulted in favor of tho Republican ticket. Jowoll, gubernatorial candidate for. ro.Jjfon,- ls"efctteo?ty a Majority" of between two and thrco thousand, Tho legislature of course will be Re publican. Ex Gov. English was interrciwed a day or two ogo. II o thinks the bulk of the Democratic party lias been thoroughly Liberalized, and that Connecticut is a re flection of tho Missouri platform, which sincerely represents the Democratic cou viction at the present time. The Republicans's Washington special says that letters received there within a few days from Pennsylvania, Illinois, Irwa and Wisconsin, state beyond doubt that largo and respectable delegations of Liberal Republicans will attend the Cincinnati convention from theso states. Hun. J. R. Grinucll, for many years a republican member of congress from Iowa, will head the delegation from that state. Hon. Leonard Swett and Hon. Je.'so H. Dubois of Illinois, who were amoug tho late Presidcut Lincoln's car nest friends and supporters, will be among the delegates from that state. Virginia and North Carolina will havo lull delegations, and it is claimed that the colored element in the South will be fully represented. Many of theso letters spoke of an adheranco to Republican princibles, but an unalterable opposition to Grant. Editorial Convention. The next Editorial Convention takes placo at So dalia on tho last Wednesday of Miy On tho day following tho Fra crnity aie to visit lioonvillo. It is to lu Imped that our citizens will lmvc iliciu an ova tion which will be in every way creditabl to us as a community. Wo shall havo more to Bay on this subject hearcaftcr. iioonvillo Eagle. Last Saturday wo published tho pro cccdings of our cfGciout Board of Trade in regard to tho Editorial Convention, which will meet in this city on the 24th day ot 01 ay ensuing. The action of tho Board is just such as we should expect from gentlemen of tlicir known spirit and intelligence. Tho Editors and their wives hive, by tho action of the Board, been made the guests of tho city, during the sitting of tno convention, and wo reel fullv au tborized to nay to the Editorial fraternity, who may attend the Convention, that they will rcceivo a greeting such as om citizens know so well how to oxtend. We have written to the Presideut of the Convention asking him to arranso with all the railroads for reduced fare, and we feel no hesitancy in saying that tho next Editorial Convention will be equal to any of those which havo been hold in this State. We heartly thank the Sedalia Board of Trade for their action in this behalf. The Schools of Missouri. By tho sixth annual roport of tho su perintendent of public schools of this stato to tho late adjourned session of the legislature, it appears that, oumtinir the counties of Carter, Douglas, Oregon, Shannon, Worth, Dunklin, Laclede, Now Jlaurid und Mississippi, w Inula havo made no returns, tbcro are in tho stato 697,270 white, and 37,173 colored chil dren of school age, making a total of 634,443. Of this number, 330,070 325,712 whito and -1,358 colored, uttended tho public schools daring the past year. This is an incrcaso of 49,507 in tho attendance over tho preceding year. It will bo noticed that whilo one white child out of every two attended the schools, only one colored child out of uine attouuod. J lie number of school; reported during tho year was 0,942, of which i woro for colored children. This is an increase of 1,524 over the preceding year.

Tho President, finishing up the week a work, ho. just written (tie last memoranda on iho back ot the last bunch of documents on his desk, and throws himself back in his chair, yawning, Next Tingle, tingle goes hie little bell. The man in waiting by the door in tho hall cheeks a snore, rises from bis seat, and entors tho President's room somnam bucally. "Call General Porter." Enter Porter. "Porter, wbero's that whisky? I'm tired." "And so am I," says the General with alacrity. "I'll get the decanter." "And some cigars," says tho President ; "no, come to think, I've got somo here in the drawer." Tableau: Grant and Porter taking a cosey night cap before the fire. Matches a smell of brimstone puffs of tobacco smoke. Glasses returned to tbo mantle piece. "What a mess Conkling and Morton made of it I" exclaims the President. "There's no donying that," says Porter. "Hero they have twice gone and put me beforo the country as a man who dreads investigation. " "Truo," says Porter. "There was that Infernal general order business (between ourselves, I wish I bad scut iieot to the devil instead ot giving In 111 that letter) Jnov bamboozled me into allowing tbcm to resist investigation ot that." ' Undoubtedly," says Porter. "And seo what a scandal has come of it." "Very true." "Then here is this arms job ; what a row they have raised throughout the country by opposing Sumner's resolution and making alt this talk." Porter sighs sadly. "If they had the brains to copo with the men who really wanted to injuro me. there would be some cotufurt ; but they had not, They wero like moths flying at a candle every timo they flew at Schurz and Sumner they got singed." "That is uoquestionaly so." "Then look at tho mean ways they took. To bo sure, Porter, you and I know that Sumner is a pompous old hum bug, and that Schurz is Lucifer himself. But tho peoplo don't see them in our light. The people believe them to bo able Senators and true patriots. It must be confessed that Sumner has a record that can't easily bo gotten over (damn his sharp noso, how ho smelt out tho San Domingo business); but here theso asses of ours, Morton and Conkling, took tho very course to excite popular sympathy for both Sumner and Schurz, and Trum bull, too he's a hard nut to crack I First, they must inject into the disagreea ble proceedings such matter as an inquiry into Schurz, Sumner, and Trumbull, on the scoro of appointments to office. I must confess, Porter, that unless our eager Senatorial friends havo moro shrewdness than they usually show they will fail to make much out of that par ticular inquiry. Tho threo Senators named haven't bothered mo much for ap pointment at any rate. I remember that two or three years ago I met Schurz at a stae party civen by Forney on Capitol Hill, and chidcJ him thoro for not com ing to see me ofteuer at tbo Whito House." "Why, General," says Porter, "you're actually making a speech." "I feel like it. Think of Conkling the vain lunatic I setting up that mock charge against Sumner and Schunz as men holding treasonable intercourse with tho scents of a foreign power. Good God, Porter, it's too ridiculous I" Says Porter: "You speak liko tho sage that, when your dander is up, you truly ao." "Porter hand down that decanter and my glass." Tho military secretary complies. "Porter," soys the President, knocking the ashes from his cigar," how do things look to you ?" "Blue." A dead silonco, illuminated by cigar flashes through clouds of tobacco smnko. "How's Fornoy?" "Unroliablo." "How's Greeley ? ' "Dangerous." "Can wo depend on the Republican press, anyway ?" "Well," says Portor, "its disagreoablo to mention it, but, after oil, we'vo got mighty fow of tho Grst-ehss Republican nowspapor with us to-day. Here's the New York Tribuno, the Chicago Tribune, tho Cincinnati Commercial, and tho Springfield Republican dead against us. It must be confessed that, in opposition to thenn, tho rest of the pap-fed Republi can journals mako a poor appearance," "But wo can fix tho convention I" "Oh, yes, wo can put in tho delegates. You will bo renominated, General ; no trouble about that. But then tho eloetion is to come after tho convention, and Micro's tho 'ppople's voice' to bo hoard, ah Tennyson says, I suppose, though, you never heard of Tennyson." "Ah I" says tho President, musing. After a pause "Porter what do vou think of this Cincinnati project? Will it amount to anything ?" Tho military tccrotarv coughs a dubi ous cough. "Won't yon," ho says, "try a littteinero ui mo wuisuey, uenerai r vinero s t 1 1 11 n n ma storm outside. It's a fearful night, f hopo the horses aro woll blanketed.
