TEE POINT is well taken by the .New
York Advertiser, that the concurrence of
the Senate in the STEWART nomination
did not of necessity imply its ignorant
disregard of the law of 1789. It was a

mitted with a full understanding of all
the legal conditions, and that existing ob
stacles, it any, Would be removed prior

Tint Cincinnati Enquirer (Dem.,) does
not deny the desiguimputed to its friends
in the Ohio Legislature, to re-distrie.t the
Btate for dongress, but dwells on the in
justice of the present apportionment, and
substantially insists that two wrongs will
accomplish one right. It is to be ob
served that the Enquirer only claims that
"the Democrats are -entitled,. ;by their
populafstrength, to nine of the nineteen
districts." Its friends are likely to carry
out their design, but Nee agree with the
Cleveland Leader that the Legislative
elections of next autumn will practically
remedy the intended mischief, in time for
the canvass of 1870.
NORTH CAROLINA has ratified the XV th

Each branch of the Georgia Legislature

is very embarrassing to the' rebel• D

equal suffrage for themselves, and n vin
dictive desire to inflict it linen the
North. In 'the meantime, telegrams

OIECO is a decidedly 'Republican State;
but a very large majority of its citizens
deemed it wise, in October '67, to reject
an equal-suffrage amendment to the State
Constitution, and_ suffered themselves to
elect the "Democratic" Legislatilre which
is still in session. The XVth A'iticlehas
been sent to this body for its action, and
eve regret to announce that the "unterri
fled" majority have not the pluck to
reject it, although their present majority
is due to the local unpopularity of a kin-
dred measure. Under the specious pre
tense of a desire to submit the question
directly to the people, atanotherelection,
they seek to escape the odium inevitably
to result from a square refusal to ratify
the most perely Democratic proposition
of the day.. They are valiant - enough,
however to propose
. a project for- re-dis
tricting the State for Congressional pur
poses, so as to secure thirteen of the nine
teen members, in, the face of a popular
Republican _majority of about 18,000.

AND now comes "the war-cloud in
Europe" again. It is seen thistime„not
half as big as one's band, in a railway
quarrel between France and Belgium,
but all the sensational journalists insist
that every leading political qUestion of
the Continent is wrapped up within its
tiny folds. We recognize, once more,
the same old story of SAPoLsox's ambi
tion, of the humiliated and vindictive
French pride, of the calm confidence of
BISMARCK, the impecuniosity of Austria,
the Italian disorders and the Russian
plots for territorial aggrandizement. Poe
sibly,it is the habit, with some of our co
temporaries to keep a variety of leading
articles on European politics standing
always in type, for reprint each quarter
day with the least possible correction.
Certainly, we have heard the same story
over and over again. It is .pleasant, in
the meantime, to know that thlaparticu
lar " war•clot}d" will be as harmless as
its nine predecessors.

Mr. KIRKPATRICK will endeavor to se

We have farther heard it mentioned that
the friends of Mr. ',Thaw P. PENNY and
Mr. Dem REED will press their claims
for the nomination.

St. Paul, at the head of river naviga
tion on the upper Mississippi, Is thecen
tral point in ithe Northwestern system of
railways, several of which are in various
stages of progress towards completion.
Its connections with the Southeast are al
ready perfected. and it extends its Iron
arms toward; the North, and Weetward to
ward the Pacific- Coast. The Northern
Pacific Railway starts from St. Paul as
its initial point, and, before. many years .
have gone by, will penetrate an --exceed
ingly favorable region,and reach the shore
of great Western Ocean shove the
mouth of: the Columbia. o,f - this route it
is claimed,•and we have reason to 'think
with justice, that it presente a better
alignment, easier grades, climatic condi
tions morel. favorable, and ' traverses,
through nearly its entire , extent, a region
of larger agricultural capacity, and in
every particulac more. corigenial
. to the
habits and Physical temperament of our
ruling race,t than either of its 'southerly
rivals for the trans-continental traffic of
lx,th the Western and the Eastern world.
The construction of this great road awaits
the public decision, and it is already ap
parent that the •temper of the public 'sen
timent is rapidly taking a shape which ren
ders its early completion inevitable.
The State of Minnesota lies in the very
heart of a region which constitutes to-day
the.largest and most productive wheat
garden of these States. The locality of
the leading production of this cereal,
'which Is first and most essential of all
the grains for the food of man, has been
moving steadily, for two generations, to
wards the West and North. The Eastern
wing still rests upon Michigan and Illi
nois, bat Wisconsin, and still more Min
nesota, are, now the centre of a region
which yields the largest and surest sup
plies of this' staple, and of the most desir
able quality. And still „ the wheat-belt
slopes irestWardly. Within the lives of
our young men, the rich plains of Deco
tah, of BaSkatchewan and of the Red
River of 1 the North will , control
the wheat markets of this con ,
tinent. This remarkable movement
of the wheat-growing belt is due in part
to the impoierishing methods of American
agriculture; which rapidly exhaust rich
soils of the' elements needful for the best
growth of the wheat plant, and in part to
the opening up of new territories which
develop the especial adaptation of their
virgin soils, and the congeniality of their
climate forjthe successful cultivation of
this grain.f In the regions which we
have specified, there extends an area
broad enough for an empire, of the best
wheat land on the face of the globe, and
scarcely the scratch of a plow has yet
been given to it by the shiftless pioneer.
This region extends In the rear 'of
nesota to the North and West. Its bug- ,
ness, intravel and the traffic in its sur-
plus productions, must necessarily come
by the •shertestroute 'Eastward, touching
the valley of the:Missisaippi at Bt. Paul,.
and thence toward the sea -board markets,
by. the best route considering time and
expense of carriage. This transportation
must be by rail throughout the reglow of
which we speak, for nature.there presents
no facilities whatever fora
But wherever this water-carriage can be
made available, in bearing the bulky pro
ducts of agriculture, hundreds and thou
sands of miles onward to the markets ' of
consamptien, the inflexible laws of trade
will give to such carriage the preference
over railway transportation.
It is not surpkising, therefore, -that the
situation already engages the attention of `
sagacious capitalists, who recognize the
need for an' early and ample preparation
to meet the approaching demands of a
vast traiilci between the Btatei of the East,
which have, ypra since, ceased to grow

the most valuable land-endowment ofany
railway In , the Union. Congress has

This is alarger doinain than the State of
Delaware, and, naturally, isworth a half
dozen Deltiwares. Intending to build a
first-class road, expressly with a view to
the requirements for a business which
nothing but their capacity can limit, the
Company Spares no expense. Its Execu
tive Committee know how to spend the
money so that it will tell. They offer now
a seven per cent. gold-loan of $4,500,000,
secured by a first mortgage upon the fran
chise and all the property of the Compa
ny, including therein its valuable land
grant, which would' be less 'than $3.00
per acre on the land, with one hundred
and fifty miles of firet-class railway, con
strueted and in operation, with all its
equipinents thrown in. The bonds, prin

construction of this short railway link has
a pOwetful bearing on one of the most
vital questions in our social economy
—the bread-question, to which so many
others are subordinate. It is in this
view that we welcome the sure success
of the project, and congratulate the promo

and fully equal to the . ' pressure of 1881,
when there was a radical change in the
Administration from Democratic to Re
publican. Members of Congress are be
seiged in the most unmerciful , manner.
They bar their doors against the army of
comers; they approach their lodgings
I through alley-ways and .by back -stair
cases, to avoid the applicants. They
seek refuge in out-of-the-way places, and
pass sleepless nights because of the anx
throng who beseige them at all hours
and upon all occasions. What is worse!
'about itis that in the chtiotic aphdayal of
things political here, it is impossible, even
for members of Congress to tell, witty
anything like certainty. what they may
expect. Never was there a worse time
for calculations for patronage based sole
ly on political service. States are et a
discount—they. are made and. , Snmade
daily. -Recommendations for -duce are
little better. Nothing .is effiesidlons ex
cept strong personal influence, - "which
carries with it a solid conviction of.worth
and merit. Impecunious office•seekers
are rapidly losing their patience. Their
resources are rapidly becoming exhaust
ed; and in a few days hundreds of them
will depart, sadder if not wiser men.
Very little progress can be made on any
subject•until this office pressure abates; it
occupies three-fourths of the President's
time and the time of his Secretary. Pres
ident Grant is growing weary and ex
hausted under it, andihe is &Hy:drawing
the lines closer as to the number and
character of visitors. This he plustdo,
or cease to be anything more than a mere
listener to the wants, claims and desires
of thousands of people; without power to
act. It will take about thirty days for
this state: of things to abate. An early
adjournme'nt of Congress will greatly fa
cilitate it.
Commisaioner Delano his Mikan held
In earnest, working day and night in or
der to get familiar with the husiness at
once. There will be a general overhaul
ing of all the internal revenue offites
throughout the country, t,he new Com
missioner being desiroua' of making,him
self familiar with the history andgeneral
official standing of eaels of them.. Mr.!
Rollins has given him :invaluable aid in
this respect,. pointing out the officers
whom he consideredhonest and efficient,
and those who have proved themselves
otherwise. The President expreshes
great anxiety about the 'collection of the
internal revenue, and has great expec.a
tions of Mr. Delano. The Commis
sioner'a first desire is to rid`the service of
all dishonest and incapable officers with
out regard to politics, and when 4At is
accomplished, then, ofcotnte, those hold
ing office, who supported! Messrs. Sey
and Blair, will have to give way to
representatives - Of the, Administration
party. ApplieationEr for office are pour
mg in upon Mr. Delano to-day, andthree
hundred were,received and filed away.
