nearly a quarter of a million more, bringing up
the grand total in the free States to one million
and a hay! Surely this is a power in the land
not to be sneered at, impeached, or in any way
disregarded, whatever - hot-headed partisans may
say. It is a party that has worked persistently
—not as a party, but as patriots—to restore the
country—and it will not be without a powerful
and influential voice in this matter. The an
. glories now are that the practical restoration of
the Union may not be far off, and this fact
should induce all good conservative men to re

seem nearer the haven of safety—the old Con

THE COMMITTEES OF CONGRESS.
The Standing Committees of the Senate and
House were announced on Monday last, and the
same excessively unfair partiality toward the
minority in both branches, which made the Com
mittees of the last House a disgrace to the party
in power, is apparent in their construction. In
the Senate, the Chairmanships of all the impor
tant Committees aro given to ?iew-Englandere.
Thus, SUMNER, is Chairman on Foreign Rela
tions ; EVESENDEN on Finance ; WILSON on Mili
tary Affairs ; HALE en Naval Affairs ; Cl/LLANO&
on Post Offices, and SO on. Mr, finexamsw, the
1 new Senator from Pennsylvania, whose legal
learning, ability and experience as a legislator
peculiarly fit him for useful service on such
Committees as those of Foreign Affairs, Finance
or Judiciary, is placed at the tail end of the
cemparatively unimportant Committees on Post
Offices, Indian Affairs, and Pensions. Mr. COWAN
has the third place on Finance, and the Chair
manship on Patents, which is better, but by no
means equal to his deservings.
In the 1101180, THAD. STEVENS is Chairman (and
the only Pennsylvanian) on Ways and Means;
DAWES, of Mass., Chairman on E 10OtiOne ; WASH
BURN, of Illinois, on Commerce;JULlAN, of Indi

Maryland), on Military Affairs ; Rios, of Maas.,

tration members, in addition to the Chairman
ship on Ways and Means, have three other un
important Chairmanships - distributed among
them, namely ; Ham, on Claims ; Truman, on
Private Land Claims; Moon.nuen, on Manufac

BUPPLIE6 TO UNION ra/50:11A5 REFUSED 131 r
THE REBEL AUTHORITIEL—The report published
a few days ago, upon the authority of a telegram
from Oen_ Rutter, that the Rebels had refused to
allow any more supplies to go to Union prison—
ers at Richmond, is fully confirmed by a letter
of the Rebel Commissioner of Exchange, Robert
Ould (printed in The Richmond Dispatch) to Gen.
Meredith, the Federal Commissioner, dated Dec.
11. Mr. Ould says :
" As the assent of the Confederate Government
to the transmission by your authorities and peo
ple of food and clothing to the prisoners at Rich
mond and elsewhere has been the subject of so
much misconstruction and misrepresentation,
and has been made the occasion of so much vili
fication and abuse, I am directed to inform you
that no more will bo allowed to be delivered at
City Point. The clothing arid provisions already
received will be devoted to the use of your prig
oners. When that supply is exhausted they will
receive the snide. rations as our eoldiere iu the
This ungettm sus decision of course places it out
of the power of the Northern friends of our sol
diers who are confined in the loathsome Southern
prisons, to send them any further relief. The
only thing that can now be done for them is for
the people; with one voice, to demand of the
President their immediate exchange, letting the
" everlasting nigger question" to be decided
hereafter. It is a monstrous and inhuman out
rage—we can give it no milder name—to allow
the thousands of white soldiers litho have brave
ly encountered the enemy in the field, to lan•
guish in the filthy and disease-engendering pris
ons, suffering the pangs of cold and hunger,
when they might be inetantly retyped, but for
the persistence of the leaders of our Government
in demanding that the few of their petted negro
soldiers who have chanced to be taken prisoners,
shall be recognized and treated by the Rebel
Government as on an equality with white men.
" Is MARVEL'S" NEW BOWL—A new book by
" lk Marvel" is a marvelous good thing, partic
ularly at this season, when a good book is doubly
welcome. We therefore give thanks to that most
liberal of New-York publishers, Mr. C. Scribner,
for sending forth, with the advent of Winter,
" Af,y Farm of Edyewood : A Country Book."--
by our old favorite, "Ik blarvel,"—printed and
bound in a style to make the book-worm's eyes
wafer. It is written with all the depth of feel
ing and purity of sentiment which constituted
the peculiar tharm of the author's earlier
writings, but conveys also sound practical les
sons for those who lead a country life, gathered
from his maturer experiences.
Mr. Scribner has also earned our thanks for
the issue of new and elegant pocket editions of
"Reveries of A Bachelor" and "Dream Life," by
the tame anther, pith the addition of new pre
faces. Two more charming "books of the
heart," as we may properly call them, were
never written. We envy the generation that. bay
grown into young man- and maidenhood since
they were first published, the delight that a first
reading of them will afford.

Boston. The author has chosen the parlor of an
old Inn for his scene, where, on u cold autumn
night, he assembles in a truly artistic group
around the fire, his characters—The Landlord, a
Student., a Spanish Jew, a young Sicilian, a
Musician, a Cambridge Theologian, and a Poet—
each of whom tells a characteristic story in verse.
They are introduced to the reader in a charming
prelude, and the poems are connected by grace.
ful interludes, in which the comments of the fire.
side circle are introduced. We give a few extracts
from these, on the first page, which will be
enough to afford our readers a taste of the quality
of this universally admired volume. Nothing

friend who appreciates intrinsic merit more than
sumptuous binding and pretty pictures.
Ber HARM ,. MACIAMNE for December—
commencing tl,o 28th volume—has reached us
rather late, but not the less welcome. It is a
splendid number in all respects. It opens with
two poems—" Saint Christopher" and " Twilight

teresting series of "Scenes in the War of 1812,"
and " Pictures of the Japanese," also illustrated,
are continued. The short Stories in this Num
ber, are numerous, and particularly good. Then
there is an able biographical notice of Prescott,
the great Hieterieu with other papers of supe
rior merit; and last of all, the " Editor's Drawer,"
wellfilled with bon mots of the spiciest sort. There
is no Magazine that approaches, or can approach

The Special Committee to whom was referred the mem
oriel of Teachers wining for an Increase of salaries, nub
wailed the following report: • • I
Tv tile Board of Confroilere of the Reading School Dia
The Special Committee, to whom was referred the corn
munication of the teachers of the Public Schools of Read
leg, relative to an increase of salaries, beg leave to report,
that the committee held a meeting on the evening of Nov.
04th, and, after a tree and fall discussion of the subject,
agreed to recommend an increase of salary to the Prtnoi
pale of Female Secondaries, Assielanis of Male and Fe
male Secondaries, and to the Principals and Assistants of
Male and Female Primaries ; as follows
Principal of female Secondary, to be liag 00 per month.
Assistant, of Male & Female Secondary; 1S 00
Pincipals of Primary, to be 17 00 "
Assistants of '• 10 oo "
This will bn an average increase of perhaps .3 per month
to the tenehAu of the lower grade of schools.
The committee, in eonfining their salon to the salaries
of the teachers of the Primary and Secondary Schools,
were well aware that the reasons aeetgnod to asking for
an increase of :salary apply also to those of higher grades.
They have to say, however, in justification of their action,
that the funds of the Board would not admit of any very
large increase of expenditure without embarrassment.
They have therefore confined their action to those salaries
that were more manifestly imadeqoate; and which, there
fore, demanded more urgently an Increase.
The Committee recommend that this increase &mammies
ou the first of January, 1884.
They would further nay that the gross amount of the
increase for the current year, will be about $1,120 00.
All of which 16 respectfully submitted.
