A bill for the reconstruction of the
Rebel States—passed by a huge ma
jority of the Senate and House of Re
presentatives—is now before the Pres
dent, and it is expected that he will
return it by Wednesday or Thursday
of this week either with his approval
or veto. It is the best measure that
can be expected from the present or
next Congress, and as such the people
of all parties are anxious that he should
approve it. True, it is not what the
politicians of the "Democratic" party
want—neither is it what the extreme
Radicals, such as Stevens, Sumner k
Co., want—neither is it what the reb
els want— but it is the best they can
have, and if all parties are wise they
will accept the bill now in the hands
of the President. The bill as it finally
passed both Houses will be found in
another column.
appears to be a grand strike to be made
in favor of the temperance movement.
The State Convention meets at Harris
burg to-day, Tuesday, to which repre
sentatives have been sent from every
section in the Commonwealth. It is
the general hope that some measures
will be taken by that Convention that
will be of a petmanent effect in abol
ishing the evils of the liquor traffic to
some extent. An organization of this
nature has much to contend with, and
we apprehend it gill take time for the
people generally to become fully alive
to the importance of removing the
evils attending the great and growing
incubus of intemperance. It is true
that the temperance organizations are
doing good, but their march at present
is but slow compared to what is nec•
essary to counteract the still more rap
id strides of its opponent. If, by the
means of this Convention, any measure
can be adopted that will cheek Intern
peranee, great good will thus be
accomplished. Such is the strength of
those who deal in liquor, and such the
power which they oxm•t upon their
victims, that temperance mon will have
to contest the field inch by inch before
they can break their ranks. W T e feel
confident that the influence exerted
by liquor•dcalers will eventually be
weakened, while the reign of the indis
criminate vender of the same must
very shortly come to an end. All that
is necessary is for the people to con•
Sider the matter with an unbiassed
mind, and reflect upon the ruin and
havoc made by an apparently encour-
aged traffic
Whatever measures are deemed ex
pedient, by the Convention, for the
speed• removal of intemperance should
reeeive the sympathy and support of
good, temperate and ehristian men

mistaken notion entertained by some
that a woman does not need as liberal
an education as a man. We can often
hear men lamenting the deficiency in
education of women with whom they
arc acquainted, and yet in the midst
of their lamentations will argue that it
is as it should be. They deem that
her sphere is that entirely of the do
mestic circle, and all the education she
requires is that which Will fit her for
the discharge of practical home duties.
It is:enough, they consider, that she is
educated to be a dutiful wife, a devo
ted mother, and an economical house
keeper. The husband, in such a situ
ation, if possessing an education, rath
er seeks the association of the learned
thlin listen to tho.prattle of his wife;
and the children are sent to school "to
keep them out of mischief," the moth
er failing to give that necessary co
operation in the instruction of youth,
which teachers feel so much.
It appears that custom has done
much to prejudice men against the ed
ucation of girls. As an instance, in
many States there arc schools for boys,
supported by appropriationsof thestate
Legislatures, while there are no such
provisions for thc girls of the Common
wealth. This is a defect which should
be remedied. It is altogether unfair
that boys should have advantages in
education, of which the girls are de
prived. We notice that in the West,
the proper step has been made. Mr.
Childs of the Michigan State Legisla
ture, has presented a bill to establish
an institution of learning to be called
the Michigan Female College. The
College is to furnish the young women
of that State with the means of ac
quiring a thorough knowledge of the
various branches of literature, science
and art. How long will it be before
Pennsylvania and her sister States
shall follow the example so worthily
set the whole country by Michigan.
phia Evening Telegraph of the 20th
says the exercise of the elective fran
chise was practically illustrated on
Tuesday, at the election for officers of
tLo Mercantile Library. A poll was
opened for female stockholders in the
same room where the men voted, and
the ladies cast, 156 votes, the business
of voting on the part- of both sexes
proceeding at the same, time without
the slightest confusion or disorder,
although the crowd in attendance was
quite as large as that to be witnessed
at many of the polls at a regular elec
tion for the officers of government.
The ladies walked up and deposited
their ballots with as much sang-froid
as though they had been accustomed
to voting all their lives. As illustra
ting how the thing might be done, this

in Philadelphia on a charge of com-'

girl eleven years of ago. The accused
was arrested and taken to Moyamens

accused was to have been tried in the
Quarter Sessions Court, in Philadel

as usual, to the Sixth street entrance
of the Court House, and one or two
prisoners had been taken into the
Court room and placed iu the dock,
and officer David Banks followed with

The Court room was crowded as

room. Leis was seated on the end of
a settee near the western entrance of
the Court room. As officer Banks en

Speech of Reverdy Johnson on the
Reoonstruotion Bill.
Feb. 20.—The following is the speech
of Hon Reverdy Johnson, Senator in
Congress from Maryland, delivered in
the Senate to-day, on the bill to pro
vide for the More efficient government
of the rebel States, which passed the
Senate to-night :
Mr. Johnson. Mr. President : I have
felt a solicitude for the condition of
the country, consequent upon the ex
clusion of the Southern States from
their right of representation in this
body, that I Want words to express. ‘ l ,
The view that I have. entertained is
that, in their present condition, they
are entitled to be represented. But
the Congress of the United States,
from the termination of the rebellion
to the present time, have taken a dif
ferent view, and I have lost all hope
of seeing them at any early date, if at
any day with the consent of Congress,
reinstated in their original condition.
Besides, the interest, the vital in
terest, which the people of the South
necessarily have in the present state
of things, the interest of the other
' States is almost as great. As long as
it continues, more or less will the rep
utation of the country suffer. I have
been, therefore, from the first,ready to
agree to any proposition which I be
lieved would result in bringing the
Southern States back, however much
I. may be opposed to the conditions
which might be exacted of them.
Nothing can be worse that the state
in which they are now placed. Deso
lation around them, all rights denied
them of a political character, and on
the floor of the Senate, to say nothing
of another branch of the Government,
their character as men has been ex
pressed in terms which have caused
me nothing but the deepest regret. I
know that they are not deserving of
such aspersion. I think I know that
the descendants of the men of the
South who upon so many occasions
battled on the field for the honor and
glory of the country and contributed
so much to the success of our civil
government, cannot be such men as
some of the members of Congress have
designated them. I wish them to bo
here in our midst to show by their
presence that in all particulars, Moral
and political, intellectual and Christian,
they are our equals. The very battles
which they have waged in seeking to
destroy the Government exhibited
deeds of valor of which Rome in her
proudest days might have boasted. If
I had my own way I would receive
them at once in this chamber, with a
heart full of conviction that they
would be true to their duty to their
country, and that they would promote
its permanent interest.
But I have not my way. I am
obliged, therefore, to acquiesce in the
decision of the majority of Congress,
however erroneous or unjust 1 may be
lieve that decision to be, provided I
believe that it will end in a compara
tively short time in restoring the South
ern States to the brotherhood ofStates.
I am unwilling that this Congress
shall adjourn without the adoption of
some measure that holds out a hope,
however distant, that this may be the
result of our deliberations, and believ
ing that this will be done by the adop
tion of the measure as it now stands
before you, 1 shall now give it my vote,
not because I approve of it in abstract
or in the particular, but because I
think I see in it a mode of rescuing the
country from the perilous predicament
in which it,'rS - -rrow -placed.
Mr. President, if there be a feeling
which should animate the heart of
every American, it should be one of
generosity, magnanimity, and charity
for the men who, although they sought
to break asunder the cords of the Uni
on, are now looking with solicitude Co
their being reinstated. .
If there be a feeling which should
animate every American citizen, it is
that we should be, and at the earliest
period, a people one and indivisible,de
monstrutin,, to the world that however
alarming the few last years may have
been, and however they were calcula
ted to cause the lovers of constitution
al freedom to despond, the time has
conic, or the time will speedily come,
when the feelings consequent upon
that effort will have subsided, and we
shall be brought together again and
be seen in tho undisturbed exercise of
duties 'imposed upon us, and ex
hibiting to the world a people great in
war, and a people capable of being in
the end, the war terminated, as great
in peace.
