—No reconstruction yet. In the
Senate on Wednesday last, Mr. Sum
ner introduced another bill for the re
construction of the rebel States. It is
fashioned a good deal after the Louis
lane bill, but is more proscriptive in
its terms against the late rebels. It
provides for the appointment by the
President, by and with the advice and
consent of the Senate, of a Governor
and Legislative council for each of the
ten States lately i❑ rebellion. Civil
government is to be inaugurated by
these officers. Rebels are permitted to
vote, but they must first tako what is
called an oath to maintain a Republi
can form of government, swearing that
they will oppose all legislation making
discriminations on account of color,and
that they will give equal educational ad
vantages to blacks and whites alike. It
is not likely that anything will be
done with this bill this session.
—The Pittsburg Commcreial, says :
"With but very trifling exceptions the
Thirty-Ninth Congress is receiving the
thanks of the Republican press, for the
thoroughness with which it completed
the business before it—the Tara Bill
being the almost sole exception." We
admit that Congress has done some
things very well, but the condition of
the whole country is evidence that it
bas also done sonic things very had.
"The thoroughness with which it com
pleted the business before it" still
leaves the whole country distracted
and almost in a state of bankruptcy.
It is too fashionable for the party press
to approve any and everything party
leaders and party representatives may
do. If it was otherwise, party leaders
and party representatives would some
times remember that they might be
held to their pledges or repudiated by
the people placing confidence in them.
The report of the committee appoint
ed by Congress to investigate the frauds

near and including the President. The
"order system" may be honest in it
self, but it can and has been abused by
dishonest men of all parties forthe pur
pose of raising extra funds for those
who are fortunate enough to 'got into
"the ring." All "fat" offices have their
"extras" which are apportioned
amongst friends as rewards for politi
cal services rendered.

This is a very proper confession,
.Which others could make with the
tame propriety. if Congress is going
to undo what it has done, we suggest
that it consider bow much time it will
take, and how much money it will
have honestly earned in the labor.

Andrew G. Curtin as a candidate for
State Senator from this District at the

Why Emigrate Westward ?
We deem it important just at this
time to refer to the mania which pos
sesses many of our people to emigrate
westward. When spring approaches
the mania is more prevalent than at
any other season.- We do not attrib
ute this so much to the change from
dull, dreary and quiet winter into
bright-eyed, laughing and progressive
Spring—thereby having, as is alleg.ed,
a like tendency upon man's sensibili•
ties—as we do to another cause. That
is this: During the Winter months
many of our people, and especially
the young, aro out of employment.
Spring comes, and impelled by a de
sire to "make hay while the sun shines,"
they immediately set themselves to
work to find something to do. Often
they are at their wit's end to know
what to got at that will suit them best.
The previous year, perhaps, they en
deavored to learn an outdoor trade, or,
perhaps, they followed some calling
which was neither a trade or profes
sion ; but they are now in a quandary
to know whether it would "pay" them
to follow the same pursuit this year.
The idea of learning a, trade bothers
them. They want to make money
faster, and believing that the IVest is
the place to do it, they therefore emi
grate. Hero they are again confronted
with obstacles they did not anticipate.
The West has no room for drones. There
a man must be a man in every sense of
of the word, to bo known as a man,
If he would succeed, ho must apply
himself to diligent, steady labor, de
pending on his own exertions. There
he makes friends slowly, as everybody
is ambitious to obtain the same prize
he came fur.
Thus a young man is losing the pleas
ures of home, the companionship of
many friends, and sacrificing the sup
port and encouragements of admirers,
to encounter difficulties, hunt, up new
friends, and rely upon his own resour•
ces and industry entirely. In the
event of failing health or sudden sick
ness he is deprived of it mother's watch
ful tenderness and the sympathies of
kind friends and associates.
We write thus to induce any of the
young who desire to emigrate to re
fleet calmly before they make the step.
We would encourage no young man,
who has a good home, kind friends,
and a permanent employment, (no
matter whether it is lucrative or not) ,
to leave for the West. That young
man is wasting precioustime and bury
ing his talent in the ground, who is
ever changing his occupation, and wo
can say the same of hint who leaves a
good situation, in order to make money
faster, in a different locality. A man
is safer in adding gradually to the
little he has than sacrificing that little
in the attempt to make largo gains.
We would only advise a young man
to emigrate westward when necessity
compels him; but none can make this
plea, who has any ability, energy or
perseverance. There is scope enough
at home, to any ono who has the will,
to become a useful member of society,
and oven got rich. It is principally
the discontented who desire to emi
grate, and the secret of the discontent
lies in the fact of their greed for gold;
and it is an undisputed fact that when
a man becomes avaricious ho will nev
er become happy, no matter how much
wealth ho may accumulate. No !

The Free Railroad Bill..
A "Free Railroad Bill" passed the
Senate on Thursday last. It is not
what the friends of a freo Railroad
Law want. The Pittsburg Commeretal
speaks of it as follows:
'The bill to prevent the building of
Railroads in Pennsylvania is going
through the Legislature of the Penn
sylvania Railroad Company, in session
at Harrisburg. Every effort of the
friends of a Free Railroad Law, have
thus fur been futile. Reinforced by
deserters, like Senators Searight and
Stutztnan the forces of the Monopoly
System defy the people and utterly
disregard the good of the State. Such
at least are the indications furnished
by the progress of the Bill through the
Senate. What will be developed when
it reaches the House remains to be

March 7.—The impeachment ques
tion was again before the .1101130 to-day,
when Mr. SrAT,Diclo, Republican from
Ohio, said : "Mr. Speaker, I do not
boast of possessing any extraordinary
degree of courage, either moral or
physical, but I thank my Creator that
lie has so constituted me that I can
rise on the floor of this House yet, and
declare my convictions, although they
differ with the majority of the party
with whield act. Sir, I differ tote e,alo
with my colleague, (Mr. Ashley), and
I stand here in this very place from
which mare than two moths ago the
Executive of the nation was charged
with high crimes and misdemeanors,
to denounce the whole scheme as ono
of consummate folly. (NoTE—Mr. Spal
now occupies the seat Mr. Ashley
occupied last session.—Reporter.)
I say that no one act, amounting to
a crime or a misdemeanor, has as yet
been proved against the Executive of
this nation, and I challenge any man
to reply to me when I make this aver
ment ; and I say more, I say that it is
not required by some of those who
charge the Executive with high crimes
and misdemeanors, that proof shall be
obtained. It is only necessary, as has
been said in high places within the
past week or ten days, that it shall be
known that the President was an ob
struction in the way of what gentle
men call "progress," and that there
fore the Radical party of the country
must remove him. Sir, I claim to hold
to no such doetrino,..and I say to my
associates of the grbat Union party,
that they must "look well to their
ways if they suppose the intelligent
people of the United States are going
to uphold them in the promulgation
and practice of any such principles."
I have the utmost confidence in the
Judiciary Committee as constituted in
the Thirty-ninth Congress. I doubt
not that I shall repose an equal de
gree of confidence in any committee
that shall be constituted by our pres
ent Speaker. I have no objection to
this investigation being pursued thro'
the channel of that Judiciary Commit
tee. But, at, the same time, to be con

of Robespierre and Murat in Franco,

next day brought to the scaffold be

in this country ? Sir, I have voted for
every radical measure of reconstruc

we have not adopted radical measures
enough to suit the purpose of some
gentlemen around me. They now cry
for the head of the Executive.

Marah S.—Mr. Morrill introduced a
joint resolution appropriating $150,000
to the relief of the freedmen and desti
tute colored people of the District,
which resolution passed the House.
A communication was today laid
befbre the Senate, from the Secretary
Howard, Commissioner of the Freed
men's _Bureau, in response to a resolu
tion of the Senate calling for informa
tion in regard to extreme want in the
Southern States, etc. The report states
that from official sources, and confirm
ed by gentlemen from different sec
tions of the South, he estimates that
32,662 whites and 24,238 colored peo
ple will aced food from some source
before the next crop can relieve them.
Tho number of rationsrequired for one
month will bo 170,700 i for five months,
the probable time required, 8,535,000.
At 25 cents per ration, the estimated
cost will be $2,133,750. Of this $625,-
000 has already been appropriated,
$1,508,750 to be provided. The desti
tute are apportioned as follows :
Virginia 2.500 2,500
North Carolina 3,000 2,000
South Carolina 5,000 5,000
Florida 500 1,000
Georgia 7,500 5,000

Tennessee 1,000 1,000
Mississippi 1 , 862 2,038
Arkansas l,OOO 500
Louisiana 300 200
Since the report , was drawn up a
statement has been received from the
assistant commissioner and the Gover
nor of Georgia, greatly exceeding the
amount in the table ; but a larger:appro
priation is not recommended for Geor
gia before another estimate shall be
made, based on a thorough inspection.
March o,—The question of an ad
journment or recess of the first session
of the Fortieth Congress has been ex
tensively convassed among members
and Senators' to-day, and there seems
to be no prospect of an immediate
agreement as to when the recess shall
be taken, or on what time Congress
shall meet again. Most all of the Sell
ators favor a recess as soon as the Ex
ecutive business is disposed of until
November, but the House looks upon
that proceeding as a virtual abandon
ment of the impeachment question.

The Central Pacific Railroad
This road was commenced in 1863,
but opposition and other drawbacks
hampered its progress greatly. It is
now finished, and the locomotive is
running ninety-three miles eastward
from Sacramento to Cisco station. This
is within twelve miles of the dreaded
summit of the Sierras. The elevation
above the sea of each of the principal
stations on the route thus far are as
fidlows : Newcastle, thirty one miles
from Sacramento, 930 feet elevation ;
Colfax, 02 miles, 2,418 feet ; Dutch
Flat, 67 miles, 3,475 feet ; Cisco, 03
miles, 5,011 feet. The road is now
graded close to the summit, which
will be crossed at an elevation of 7,050
feet. By far the most difficult part of
the road has now been built; that
from the summit down the mountains
eastward will bo comparatively easy,
and the grade light. In coming up,
' the highest allowed grade, 116 feet to
the mile, is hut once reached ; the av
erage ascending grade to the summit
hat 75 feet to the mile. In descending
the eastward side of the Sierras, 00
feet will be the greatest descending
grade, and the average only 40 feet.
When the eastern base of the Sierras is
passed, there is almost a natural grade
to the westerly base of the Rocky
Mountains. This part of the road can
ho built ten times more rapidly and
about as much more cheaply than that
:dread); done. All the county, State,
and national monetary aid that was
received has been thrown into the
work ; and this terrible earnestness
that has characterized its managers
was what . silenced opposition more
than anything else, so that its former
greatest detractors aro now its warm
est friends. And it was no sentimen
tal wish alone see . the road complo
ted that made its owners give to it so
lavishly. They know well the great
present trade and the yet compara
tively undeveloped resources of the ex
tremely rich country that is waiting
for the development that the road will
give; and they know, also, that every
dollar expended upon it will come back
with interest in a very near future af
ter its completion, and that one Share
in their hands with the road built will
be worth two while it is unfinished.
Tho road will be complete toVirginia

aMarriage Certificate that has excited any interest or at
traction; but the originators of the PHOTOGRAPH MAR
RIAGE CERTIFICATE claim that they have gotten up
something that will be moot heartily welcomed try all
persons now married and all those who contemplate Mar- .
Size and Plan of the Marriage Certificate
Thr,size of the Certificate is 19 by It inches. It con
tains a beautiful figure representing the union of two
heart.a. Above the figure is written in beautifully orna
mented Germ. Text the words "Photograph Marriage
Certificate." There are three spaces in the figure :on the
space in the center the Certificate proper is written. The
words, ''two hearts in nue' form an arch over the Certifi
cate proper, and immediately under the arch there is a
beautiful figure representing the joining of hands, and
where the centre space conies to a point Otero is a picture
of two beautiful turtle doves. Ott the space to the left
there is a place for the photograph of the e„eutleman mid
under it WO have the words, "To the husband," in orna
mental text, tinder which we have aelee t ham of Scripture
passages, addressed to the husband.. Ott the loft side of
the engraving we have a place for the Photograph of the
wife. Immediately under which we have the words, '.To
the Wife," in °memento! text, under which are appro
prints passages of Scripture addressed in the wife. Over
the space for t h e photograph of gentleman walleye writ
ten ill Old Eng , ish characters, the following, appropriate
passage of Scripture: "It is not good that the man
should be alone," and over the space for the photograph
of the lady, eve have the corresponding words: "I will
make him an help meet for him." At the lower exten
sion of the figure of the hearts, we have the hearts bound
together or encircled in part by these words: "What
therefore lied Lath joined together let no man put asun
der." The Certificate is so constructed that card photo
graphs of both bride and bridegroom can be Inserted
without the least possible dillionl ty. Indeed everything
connected with it is to elegant, attractive and desirable
that many single persons seeing the Comfit:ate have boon
so much pleated with its appearance, that they purchased
on sight one of these beautiful parlor ornaments.
A specimen copy orate Phomgraph Marriage Certificate
will be carefully put up and sent by mail free, on receipt
of the retail prfee, which is ONE DOLLAR.
