THE Philadelphia Ledger makes a fair
Lit at the character of the members of the •
Legislature wheit it says that if the Rep
resentatives from that city were as solid
on the candidate for U. S. Senator as they
are on the pasfers and fOlders, a Senator
might be made from Philadelphia. It
seems manifest that to the average mpre:
sentativc at Rarrhsburg it is of more int
portauce—tia wiu a pa.ster-and-foldership
than to elect a statesman who shall'honor
the i ,State and ably. serve the people, to

and halt and play all things : 4o all Men to
secure wine paltry positian, when the .
question of the magnitude•of the election
of a inan to the U. S. Fenate —the highest
representative body in thC - world—is to be
determined by them.
THE House Committee on 31ilita i ry Af
fairs, Thursday, by a vote of six to three,
decided. to report adversely ou Mr. MC-
Cooietz Lill authorizing the President to
place Gen. I'LYS,SEI4 ;..GRANT upon the
list of the army with tlie rank, and pay of
general, the six hostile votes being cut
by the Dernocratimejnbers of the com
mittee. The mcjin
spirit by - Iv:Web-this action seems to have
been prompted will subject the controlling
majority In the committee to general con
demnation. Considering the signal ser
swhich General GIIANT has rendered
to tlin country and the greatness of his
military genius, it is very little that was
asked, and that it should have been re
fused will give fireign observers good
reas'ou to accuse republics of ingratitude.
THE following is a summary of the law
governing the election of United States

journals of the two houses Are then read
and certifimkes signed. If, however, the
same person shall not have relieved a
majority of ;the votes in each house, or ,if
either house shall have failed to take pro
matins at required by law, the -joint
assembly shall then proceed to choose, by
a viva vote vote of,eich member present,
a person for the purpoie' aforesaid, and
the person having a majority of all -the
votes of the said joint assembly (a major
ity of all the members elected to both'
houses being present and :rating) eluhrbe
declared duly elected ; 'and in else of no

We believe in political parties as an
organized force, and that without orp
ganiz2tion a pOlitical party cannot,
have any dominating form. But in
so believing we do not , lose.siait of
the fact that
orgasiization Of a
party is not merely a mechanical
process. All organized force; in
which human passions, ambitions,
and publi2 needs constitute elemen
tal factors, in order to be
effective and lasting, be based upon
the kaolin will of ,the people. This
will may be made known in various
ways, but however it be made known,
it 'is the highest wisdom to respect
it. The clearly expressed will of the
people may be ignored in some easeS,
and the'p'Gsition of a party may be
forced by an .arbitrary exercise of
power. , It may be done once with
comparative'. impunity. It has never
been done twice without creating po-
litical distempers beyond the power
of quacks to remedy. And when the,
patience of the people has been ex
hausted by such arbitrary acts. there
follows to upheaval Which burieslbe
authors. of 'those . acts out of sight.
The Republica - n party in this State
has now been forced 'to the limit of
it 3 patience. It would be folly to
ignore the situation or to deceive
ourselves 'as to the inevitable conse-
quenees of the arbitrary course of
Republican lezders touchipg the
Senatorial contest. No intelligent
marl denies that Republicans of :the
State . had indicated their preference
for Mr flaw as against any other
man for that high trust. Ills follow
ing was not limited to any
It:-• was ,• distributed very generlly
throughout the State. A large•nnm
ber of Senators and Representatives
•had been instructed for hiin . .by the
people .in C4nvention_ assembled.
Still others were personally favorable
to his selection. And upto a period •
'within ten days of the assembling of
the legislature no other-oar.didate
had been designated- whose selection
was demanded by any considerable'
number of Republican-.voters:_
When the- LegiSlature convened
there was soon developed an inten
tion. to- ignore the, indicatedprefer
ence of the people . of the State.'7The
fact—which was not because it could
not be denied—that so • far the
masses of the party had any choice
it was for Mr. Gaon', was conteMptu
ously set aside,. and a few disorgan
izers clubbed their resources to de
feat Mr. Gaow. how well this suc
ceeded is now • a
. matterof history.
But the defeat of a man indicated by
the masses of the party is not a mat.s
ter of slight importance. It is a mat
ter of serious importance, and. so
Serious is it that' it is ingiossible to
discern the end. • The' methode:by
which this reversal.of the will of the
people was effected ;need not i be
explained. No matter how 'it
was done, it . was done, and the
consequencis - cannot be escaped.
These consequences,, will lie
spread as to their effects and fatal as
to the political future of
who invited them. It is the last
straw that breaks the , camel's back,
and- sane gentlemen who seem to re,
gard the party as a -spire horse to be
used on all occasions 'for personal
profit or .:advantage, may have to
learn to walk in the future. Fo one
thing is pretty certain, — this attempt
to overthrow the ,will of the Repub
lican maS4 - s will not. be forgotten,
nor will it lie-forgiven-by the masses
Will men never learn that it is
possible to force the masses into an
aggressive attitude? Do men sup
pose that the , masses care a farthing
for the private ambitions orthe few?
The political history of this county
may be studied with profit by such
, if there be any
such. More than once the imbecility
and wrongheadness of leaders have
wrought the end of thodominance of
a great political "force. • The Demo
cratic leaders did this in 1854. The
Whig leaders had done the same
thing a few years earlier. The Fed
eral' leaders did the . same thing in
1812-16. If any remain s keptical as to
what the consequences of such reck
lessness were, they can be enlighten
ed by reading history. Let no man
suppose that any but the universal
law will operate today. , The Repub
lican party has a grand past. It
ought to have a grand future. But
the events of the last , month do not
brighten that promise of futite great
ness. The party sprung from the
loins of the people,. it has been main
tained by the People., and its future
: is in the custody of the people.
Should the people stand apart for's,
single year; and refuse to obey the
arbitrary mandates of a few reckless
men, or to' submit to a nullification
of their will fairly expressed; it needs
no prophet's vision, to disiern the
consequences. - When men-call and
the people refuse to rally, that Is
something significant. There may
not be much noise, but the execution
'will not be cr.ritemptible.
The put week has been fill of itn-
Orient incidents resulting Ikon the
(Maks of hawed* and aen*nenta
uto the-candidates for _
Rhstes Senator, -and the Indio&
which have been etiphled tousled
the action of the Republican caucus:
The Preliininary caucus to organize
the Legislature showed that a um
ber of- members instructed for' Mr.
GROW bad been persuaded, by the
peculiar influences which were em
ployed, to disobey their. instructions
and disregard the will of -theircon
, and vote in such a way as
was etrimental to , Mr. ( ;how's in 7
terest. But the triTing point of the
contest was the transfer ofoe Phila
delphia delegation to OLivErt. This
was done after much dickering, but
was finally- accomplished, and the
Philadelphia members, with _the ex
ception of four or five, were told to
go . for OLIVER.. When this fact be...
I come public, a caucus of Mr. firrowis
friends was called for Thursday at 3
o'clock, Which was attended by about
fifty members, and a lengthy. Wit
temperate discussion was had is to
the ' proper course to be adopted un
der the circumstances. The conclu
ision : rived at was that the poPular
will in regard l:J
to the .olted States
Senit(m should be respected, and
that as the managers had attempted
Co thwart the popular expression and
reverse, , their` deCision by means and
influences which were dishonest and
disreputable, that it was the duty or,
the_ fepresentatives to vindicate the
wilt of the people. The caucus finally
'adopted and signed the following
declaration : • '
We,,the underiigned Repeb!lean Sena.:
tors and members of the House of 'Repre
sentatives of Pennsylvania, being oT the
opinion, that in the existing condition of

State that we should co into a caucus on
a selection of a candidate for the United
States Senate, decline going into any pre
liminary caucus and intend to give ex
pression to our indifidual preferences in'

HARRISBURG, Jan. 15, 1881.—The sec
ond week of the present legislative session
closed yesterday, without any - I:articular
progress having been made idthe business
of legislation ; and it is not expected that
anything of consequence will be acromt
plisbed in ' this direction runtil after the
election of a United States" Senator,—
which should take place on Tuesday next,
the 18thinst., but Which may continue in
dispute no one knows how long;
The elating event of the week—the
one compared with which all others paled
into insignificatid—was tbd meeting of
the general Republican caucus of Senators
and Representatives, to t nominate a can
didate for Senator to succeed Mr. Wallace.
There was a brief cessation of hostilities—
a kind of breathing spell Indulged in—
fer a day ortwo since. my letter of the
Bth inst., but the battle, narrowed down
to a contest between the friends of Grow
and Oliver, was renewed early in the week
and carried on with renewed energy, .if not
bitterness, until the caucus adjourned on
Thursday evening about 10 o'clock. Dur
ing the forentxm on • Thursday rumors
were circulating that the Grow men were
contemplating a " bolt," "kick," , or
" revolution ". (the reader.can name it),
and that they would not go intdthe cau
cus or be bound by its action. The post
ing up early in the day of a call for a
meeting of the supporters of Grow at his
headquarters at the Lochiel Hotel, at 3
o'clock in the afternoon, was taken as a
confirmation of these reports, and there
was great interest-manifested, while ian-
gnaws much more emphatic than elegant
was very freely indulged in. Very little
attention was paid by any one to the joint
session of the. Senate and House, which
L, had convened to hear announced thd votes
for Auditor General. The. Senatorial
question was the only, pun talked — about,
the Grow men denouncing .ithe machine,.
the sling, etc., while , the Oliver men in
dulged in very uncomplimentary remarks
about the Grow • kickers, bolters, - etc.
The thing was getting redhot, and serious
trouble was anticipated. At the caucus f
the supporters of Grow held in his - rooms,
forty-seven - gentlemenwere present. An
organization was affected by electing
Hem. Geo. V. Lawrence, of Washington
couty, chairman, when the situation was
ly and freely discussed. After same
time spent in considering several -proposi
tions, which were not adopted,, a declare
-tion was agreed urn and signed by forty
seven Senators and Repreitentatives,, de
clining to go into caucus.
When the proportionsef this "bolt" or
demonstration 'carde to be understood, it
surprised almost every one. and added
greatly to the excitement already existing. i
The: Oliver 'men, however, were plucky,)
and determined to proceed in the regular
way. The general caucus, advertiad to
meet in. the State - Library at 8 o'clock in
the 'evening, 944tibled at that hour.
Seats had - been placed for a full cornitle- -
tnent of legislators; bat they did not come.
Strangest of all, the reporters were allow
ed'to come in, which was a departute from
the well-established custom as to caucuses
of this kind. Ninety-eight Members and
Senators answered to their names on the
call of the roll, *hen Senator Hugh Mc-
Neill, of Allegheny,: was chosen to pre
side. Representatfie Law, of Philadel
phia, called . attent ion to the fact that
there was not enon members present to
elect a United StateS Senator, and *anted
to know if, node . be circumstances, he
would be . allowed to support a comprcs:
miss candidate if. it. Should at any time
become evident that the nominee of' the
caucus could not be eleeted. This matter
not being settled to the satisfaction of Mr.i
,Law, that gentleinan withdretv from the
caucus, and his example was afterward
followed by Representative Rudd iman, also
of Philadelphia, and Senator Smiley, of
the Perry county . ;listrict—these gentle
men stating that they did not wish their
action in going out to be looked dpon as
showing disrespect or as a threat.
The caucus, after the names of, candi es
dates were announctd, proceeded to the
:first ballot,- - with- the follovrin - result

At the end of the second ballot the names .
