Object -of the-Defeat of the Postal
, i
It know apparent that it was the delihe- 1
ram purpose of Mr. Grew—who in this day,
when small politicians ape the magnitude of
great statesmen, has trate the position of the
leader of the Republican 'party—to defeat the
appropriation bills, for the purpose deem
pelling an extra session of Congress, and se
curing his election to the Speakership. lie`
expected thatthe failure of the post office ap
prepriations would impose upon the President
the necessity of summoning an extra session.'
In that event the Opposition wouldhive a I
majority--; for nearly ail the member of i
Congress from theLNerth have already been
elected, and many Of those frogs she .South I
are , .not chtsen until^ next fall. The next :
Congre'si will be very close. A 'vote or -two i
on either sidzy May determine 'who will be i
Speaker. An extra session. Weaned at all„l
would be convened before the elections are 1
bold in all the States, and thus an undoubted I
Oppcsition majority be present to control the
organization. Mr. Grow was the candidive
.f - his party for Speaker at the opening ofshis l
session, and expects to he at QUI next. So it
was a sharp trick on his part to defeat the
postal appropriation, that the next Congress
Might be prematurely convened, and he ele
rated to the Speakersirip, in the absence of a
late - portion of the Democratic members.
What etre the chicumstanues . under which
this necessary appropriation bill was defeat
ed I The Senate asloptevban amendment to
the bell after it came frorne d t' e House,t 'king
the franking privilege away from the mem
bers, and increasing the rate of letter postage
from three to five cents, The House dii nut
pursue the usital course of disngreeingso the
amendment, grit ch would hive revulted in
bad it b o the Senate, and-finally re
fened the whole subject to - a committee !of
conference to decide upon its merits, firit the
extraordinary eat edient was adopted, of re
turning the bill to tae Senate, with the in- i
spiting declaration t h at it had not the power ' ,
to adopt the amendment. This eas the re
solution offered by Mr. Grow and adopted by
the Hons.!: •
"Reeolstd, Vint the House bill No. 872,
making appropriations for defraying 4.lse ex
penses of the Pest ()flee Department for the
year ending 30th June, 1860, with the Senate
amendment thereto,be returned ktithe Senate
as section 3d of said amendment is in the na -
turiof a revenue bill."
The result of this instilling resolution was
just. a hat its author anticipated. It diverted
the discussion from the main quesion—
which WAS the rate of postage, and embroiled
the House in a cowroversy upon constitution
al power. Phelps put the question in proper light
when he said :
"The amendment of the Senate provides
fOr no taxes upon the peOple, as contemplated
by the section of the Constitution conferring
upon Congress the power of raising taxes.
"But we look to the public lands as a
source of revenue, and we look to the deduc
tions from the pay of mariners for the purpose
of supporting marine hospitals, as a portion
of the revenue as well ne to the postages. if
the point-made by the getAleniatt from Penn
svlrauis`be comet, then the - Senate bas no
power• to provide fir the sale of the publie
lands, because they are a source for revenue ;
the Senate have no right to provide for ire
po=ing light dues or tonnage dues, rn i has
I no tight to provide fOr a deduction from the
I wages of seamen for, the support of marine
hosiAtbr, because, in brs opinion, they- would
I be bills raising r e venue." s.
But Mr. Grow's peculiar form of excepting
to the Senate amendment accomplished his
put?, se of reising a secondary _question of
constitutional power, which the Senate conk!
not shirk, and whiul: procured the defeat of
_the approptiition and the probable necessity
of an extra'sessiou.
The Washington Union comments pith
well deserved severity upon this proceeding,
when it says:
`;Hut - Mr. Crow's object was not to defeat
the amendment of the Senate; and he did kot
allow this bill to go through this natural and
usual process Of reference. His object was
to defeat the hill itself; and this he deter
mined to do, even if its defeat carried along
with it, as he treati•ened, the defeat of all the
other appropriation bills. He did not move
to take up the bill and to non-concur in the
Senate% amendment. He moved a resolution I
by_yrdlich the House sent back the whole, bill
as a tainted thing which it would not touch t
or-consider at all, accompanied by a resolm
lion of insult, to the Senate. Such a resole- I
lion as that adopted by the .House was neveri
beard of ip the Congressional history of this
country, nor in the parliamentary history of
Civet Britain, and its unprecedented and
wanton character made it all the- more in
sulung,to the Senate. It was- intended to
de so. 4t was intended to force upon that
body a question of punctilio which it could
not ignore. and thus to consume the expiring
moments of the ses-ion in a debate which
must exclude Action on the bill. -
"We ll,the deed btd on e. Th ereis no appro i- I
mien for carrying the mails of thial vast country
over any one mile of its`immeh.e territory
after the Est ocnext July. There is no power
, in the government to contractfor its carriage,
I or to pay one cent in defrayal of the expenses
of. mail transportation. The old contractors
may wantonly come forward and proffer to
carry the mails en the old or on reduckl
sheccules, and trust to Cungtess fur their re-'
-mune/116ot; but the depaitmenthiS no power
to enter into contracts or to bind the govern-
'pent to the payment of tidollar. lEither this
state of things must ensue to the disgrace of
a great people, able and willing to pay their
just public debts ; or else the new Congress
roust be called together before all its' mem
bers can be elected; and Mr. Gnaw be made
Speaker in iconsequence of bit) own sharp
prat' ice.
"It must be confessed that this is a new
mode of electioneering for the Speakership.
But an 'ofSce won by this meatis,evetr though
it be the third office in the American govern
ment, Will bring its incumbent into, con
apicuous contempt rather than into conspicu
otas honor."

individual stepped into various stores in our
Borough (says the Scranton •`ll,epublican" of

Mr. Ziba Knapp, in Mr. Chase's enaploy, was
not exactly' satisfied with this bill and on
examining it more closely on Tuesday mord
jeg,was still more sespiciort4. His suspicions
became certainty, when, comparing his ex- I
perfkice with that of othersit was ascertained
that some $7O had been passed. Inquiry was

This article (greatly improved withjp the last
three years) has been in the marked Ibr eighteen
years, and still .defies competition, as a manure
for Corn and Clantin Vegetables, being cheaper,
More powerful, than any other ' and at the same
time free front disagreeable odor. Two bar s rels,
($3 worth) will manure an acre of corn in the
bill, will nave two-thirds in labor, will cause it
to come up quicker, to grow faster,ripen earlier,
and will bring a larger crop on poor ground
than any other fertilizer, and it is also a pre
ventiverto cut worm; also it does not injure the
seed hp put in eontact withjt.
- The L M. Co. point to, their long standing
reputation, and the large capital ($100,000) in
vested in their business as a guarantee that the
article they make shall always be of such quality
as to command a ready sale.

called Champion, for during the whole minas ,

directly upon the safe which contained them.
And still, upon opening it, the inside was found
to be scarcely warm, while the outside was
