The Address of the "Demockatic" Sena
The Tory Organ is occupied this- morning,
principally, with an address frOm the "liem.
ocratic" Senators. Of course our readers will
understand what u is meant by this address. Ii
is written in identically the same spirit, with
which the cabal at Richmond, Va., address
their adherents, and abounds with about as
molh truth, reason and justice, as do Jeff.
Davis' communications to the traitors and
assassins who are now _fighting for the eleva
tion of the institution of- slavery over that of
freedom. We do not refer to the address to
make the effOrt of .expOsing its sophistries or
to point out and explode its garble" quotations
of the Constitution and the law. It is best
that it should go before the.people .uncontro
verted„ and in the 'judgment of the loyal
masses, receive the condemnation which
it is certain to meet at their hands. Bat
there is one portion of this address, the
very pith in fact, of the document, which
deseives to, be particularly pointed out.
It is the justification which these "grave and
reverend" Senators offer for their course for
the last two months. This justification is
contained in the declaration that the ma
jority in the Senate refused to share the
offices of its organization with the minority.
Thus is the cat out of the bag—the
tion of the milk in... the cocoa nut. It was
office-patronage-plunder which these dem
agogues sought—and in their mad contest for
the "loaves and the fishes" they were willing
to sacrifice the dignity, of the Senate and
peril the very existence of the Obmmonwealth
itself. We are sorry, that we have no room
to spare to print this address ,for. the benefit
of, our readers. Its'unwittingly gross achnis
• sions and attempt at arguments, are the . best
condemnation of the course of those u•ho
signed this document, which ..could possibly
APE recently copied a paragraph stating
that' the Union League in:the United States_
numbers more than 800,000 members. We
may now add the further statement, which we
find made on good authority, that this widely
extended and influential organization May be
regarded as almost unanimously in favor of
continuing Mr. Lincoln in the Presidential
office four yeasf,longer, in order to sn:4l l up
the rebellion, perfect the work of reconstruc
tion, and band over to his successor a Union
without a rebel and without a slave.

The Removal of'the Obstructions to Busi-
fleas in the Legislature..
Weeks ago, the people of Pennsylvania,
whose interests depend upon the progress of
legislation, and whose patriotism revolted at
any proceeding likely to affect the honor of
true cause of the obstructions to btiSiness in
elate the fact that a minority of Senators, bud-
dozily given an advantage by the vicissitudes
•of the struggle for the safety of the National
Union and the defence of the National Gov-
had resolved to control the delibe
rations of the majority in the Senate, so as to
make. capital for their party and gain patron-
he Commonwealth, were satisfied as to-the
he Legislature. They could see and appre-
age for, their partizans. The attitude of the
minority, view it fron'i any stand point in
which we may observe it, presents only a
body of desperate demagogues, made reckless
by their , defiats before the people, resolved to
do extreme things .t.o..Tender them notorioff ,
with their followers and contribute to the sat
isfaction of an element in the politics of
Pennsylvimia, which is in antagonism to the
Goverrunent and an 'affinity of treason. If
the public interest haduot suffered while these
shameful proceedings were in progress, we
might have endured and survived the disgrace
which was thereby cast upon the Common
monwealth. But in the meantime, by the di-
red, action of the Democratic minority in the
Senate, the public debt has been increased
almost a million of dollars, withouta benefit
to boast of as a relief for the burden ; the
claims of veteran soldiers and widows of dead
heroes, have been thrown in, the market for
the want of an appropriation to liquidate such
debts, there to be gobbled up by hordek of vile
speclalators ; the political rights of the 'soldier
in the field recognized only bill bare vote of
the majority—and all .these proceedings and
results had as a gratification to a faction eel
ing iii the name of a party, whose :highest
boaSt now is, that it makes no sacrifices for
the, country, for the Government or for .the
people. Such was the condition of affairs
which induced Speaker Penney to make a
sacrifice of a precedent in resigning. His re
signation was no recognition of any right or
principle claimed or advanced by the minority.
Ho did not resign in obedience to the demands
of the desperate demagog-uos who for mouths
have delayed the business of legislation. His
resignation was not the act of a man who be
lieved that-he occupied a positiori without the
justification of right or the support ofprece
dent. He did not leave the Speaker's chair,
because he had any doubts as to the right by
' which he oCcupied that station. He - did not
give up the authority vested in him by a con
stitutional election, because lie deemed that
it had expired •in .his hands. Ho merely
resigned his right to preside-an act which
leaves the entire case as it was, to be' again
:tested, when a similar body of factionists
occupy places in the Senate. Hie resignation
was a sacrifice of precedent to_ secure the
safety of principles. He went through the
formal: Ceremony of a resignation; in order
that the public interests might be protected
against the assaults sof an inflamed and
. politically intoxicated cabal of the worst men
ever invested with legislative power. It
was the sacrifice of the . patriot to circumvent
the plots of the demagogue—the action of
a statesman to .allay the quibbles and the
Machinations of the dirty politician. In
this light the people now regard the termi
nation of the difficulty in : the Senate; and
while the demagogues who controlled that
body for the time twhich hos already elapsed
bf the session of the tegislature, claim the re
sult as a victory, is a triumph which will
carry to their lips a cup of bitterness that must
hereafter sicken their, souls unto eternal po
litical death. They have the satisfaction' of
knowing that in the midst of the greatest
danger which over menaced the nation, they
plotted to impede the progresS of legislation
and disgraCe the State GOvernment, foi. the
sole object of making capital on which - to
found the future success of their,party. We
give the minority Senators, then, joy in their
Release . "of 1-Ihri7 White.
It will be seen by out telegraphic columns
that Maj. Harry White has been released from

pathizers in the State Senate.
