Wednesday Afternoon, March V, 1861.
Senator Sherman.
We hail with pleasure the election of
John Sherman as United States Senator
from Ohio, to succeed Gov. Chase. Not
but that other excellent selections might
have been made—for all candidates were
worthy—but Mr. Sherman was best
known to the country at large, and his
qualifications peculiarly fit him for the
Senate at this time. Though not qUite
thirty-eight years old, Mr. Sherman has
served three terms in the lower House of
Congress with marked ability. His ea.
oieney on the famous Kansas Investigat
ing Committee first drew public attention
to him, which was fixed by his subse-
quently displayed skill as a parlimentary
tactition. -Oa the assembling of the
I Thirty-Sixth Congress he was selected
With great unanimity as the Republican
candidate for Speaker. But the peculiar
composition of the House rendered the
nonsensical hue and cry of "Helperism"
sufficient to cause the withdrawal of Mr.
Shernian, and the substitution of Mr.
Pennington in his place with better suc
cess. But, like the fabled giant of old,
Mr. Sherman touched the ground only to
gain strength, and we have no doubt that
it was mainly owing to the intrepidity,
tact and untiring energy, with which, as
Chairman of the Committee of Ways and
;Vleans, he drove through the business of
the. House, that he has now been promot
ed to the United States Senate.
He will take his seat at an opportune
period. The withdrawal of three such
men as Seward, Chase and Cameron—
each signally effective within his own
ephere—leaves a void which it concerns
the country and the Republican party to
limit as much as possible- And we think
the Republicans of Ohio have done their
duty in the premises. The administra
• tion will have in Mr. Sherman, a skillful
and effective champion in debate, and the
country will have a wise, liberal-minded
and hard workin'g public servant, whose
, Inture cannot but be brilliant and benefi

sion of Congress, was unable to appear in
the House. • Mr. Scranton was a native
of Conneticut. He left that State for
'Warren county, New Jeesey, where he
:engaged in the iron manufacturing busi
*ess. Thence he went to Luzerne coun
ty, in this State, and commenced business
:at a place in the heart of the coal and
.iron region, where a large town has grown
'up, which will perpetuate his honored
iline. The development of the Lexica.
anna coal region is in a great measure
due to Mr. Scranton's l energetic and in
elligent action. In 1858 Mr. Scranton
Iponeented to run as the People's candidate
, 'for Congress, and in a district always
'teavily Democratic, he was elected by a
arge majority. He was a faithful and
luseful member, and a devoted friend of
.Pennsylvania interests. In October last
le was re-elected, notwithstanding the
most strenuous efforts to defeat him. By
ibis death Pennsylvania loses a most valua
le citizen, one who was respected and
'honored in every walk of life.
WEATHER ON THE HunsoN.—For the
part week, the weather at different points
on the Hudson river, New York, was al
most as severe as it was in January. The
weather, too, was bitter cold and must
have as low as hero. For several
dais past, there has been a constant storm
of wind blowing from the North, and this
has caused the water in the river to be
very low, so much so that in many places
the bed of the river, at the sides, is more
exposed than for some years past. The
extreme cold, snow storms and north
winds have filled the river with ice, caus
ing also serious detention to the boats.
The river in many places between Al
bany, and Hudson was frozen over tight,
and at Albany, and above that point, the
ice was sheet from shore to shore, when
the ferry boats crossing at the different
sections set the mass in motion, and came
floating down with the tide. Ffoating ice
extends between Rhinebeck and Albany,
siNistance of about sixty miles. All the
itrems, creeks and standing water are
frozen over, of (Eat Iwo or three

The whole number of representath
is by law fixed at two hundred and thirty
three, who are apportioned among the
States respectively, by dividing the num
ber of the free population of the States,
to which, in slave-holding States, three
'fifths of the slaves is added, by the num
ber two hundred and thirty three, and
the produot of such division.(rejecting all
fractions of a unit) shall be the ratio of
representation of the several States; but
as the number and amount of the frac
tions among so many dividends would, of
course, in the aggregate, be sufficient to
reduce the number of representatives be
low the number specified, it was provided
that the whole number should be suppli
ed by assigning to so many States having
the largest fractions, until the number
of two hundred and thirty-three members
should be assigned to the several States.
gusta (Ga.) Sentinel thinks the determina
tion of the Southern Congress to discon
tinue some of the little Post Offices is
wise, if not carried too far. Some of
them, it says, are merely Post Offices in
name. For instance, we find that for the
year ending September 30,1859, the nett
proceeds of each of five offices in Florida
was under ten cents, Three of them re
ceived four cents each, and one of them
three cents. Certainly these offices
could be lopped off without any great
ington States thus hits off the warklike
dispatches which the secession members
have been in the habit of, sending South
this winter :
"It is said that after an exciting debate in
tke Senate, Wigfall was understood to have
asked Seward privately fur a chew of tobacco,
and that Seward replied that he had none but
Union twist; whereupon Wigfall telegraphed to
the Southern States that they must prepare for
war, as the Republicans would not yield.
The name of Camp Floyd in Utah has
been changed to Camp Crittenden.
TION.-It has been fully decided that
the National exhibition held in England
in 1851 shall be repeated in 1862. The
Commissioners appointed by the English
Government have come to a resolution as
to the precise character of the building.
The Bank of England has offered to ad
vance the required funds, and a contract
will at once be made with two eminent
firms who sent in the lowest tender, and
who have jointly agreed to execute the
work. - '
, THE anniversary of the birth-days of
three former Presidents of the United
States occur this month, viz Andrew
Jackson, born March 15th, 1767; James
Madison, born March 16th,, 1731; and
John Tyler, born March 20th, 1760.
Thomas Jefferson was born April 2d,

THE Mississippians are already experi
encing the benefits of secession. There
is already a special tax levied of 50 per
cent. and if they get through their career,
says a Louisiana paper, without having
their taxes increased more than 500 per
cent, they will come out well indeed.

The Chair laid before the Senate the following
Message from tho . President
"To the Senate of the United States :—I. have re
ceived a copy of a resolution of the Senate
passed on the 26th inst., requesthig me, if in
my opinion not incompatible with the public
interests to communicate to the Senate the
dispatches of Major Robert Anderson, to the
War Department daring the time he has been
in command at Fort Sumter. On examination
of the corresponence thus called for I have,
with the highest respect for the Senate, come
to the conclusion that at the present moment
the publication of it would be inexpedient.
Mr. BRECILBI3RIDGB, (Ky.,) moved to take up
the resolution introduced by him yesterday,
advising the withdrawal of the federal troops
from the seceded States: He did not intend
making any remarks as he had already express
ed his views on that subject. He'desired the
vote on his motion to be regarded as a test

Mr. FEBBENDEN, (Me.,) supposed there would
be no objection to that, butbe reminded the
Senator that no quorum was present.
On motion of Air. HAVE, (N, H.) the Senate
