The Adjonnumeat of the Legislature.
We understand an effort is being made to
!wing about an adjournment of the Legislature
until May. For this action we have heard no
good reasons urged ; and we are utterly -at a
loss to conceive any sufficient fora measure se
extraordinary and seemingly uncalled for. The
suspicion of motives entirely personal has
been imputed to certain movers of the tempo
.rary adjournment. There may be private
.reasons—come political chicanery or other
which is at the bottom of the project—but what
public ends can be served by" an extra session
?it seems impossible to tell. •
The Legislature has had time enough—and
the people should know it—to transact all the
'necessary business of the session ; it has de
layed and put off , matters of vital public and
ouitionakeoncern ; it is now, at the instance of
certain aspirants for office—perhaps of certain
individuals having "axes to grind"—upon an
insufficient pretext, asked to adjourn and to re
assemble at a most inauspicious time for pub
lic business. In the midst of national trials,
with a future impending fall of anxiety and
.uncertainty, itia.thne that i personal aims, the
oblivious ambition of ispirtints to office and

Resolutions of the Legislature.
The Conservative party of the North will
shortly be obliged to come to a common under
- standing in reference to our national policy..
If it does not the Cons - ervative party is at sea,
and the country is at sea* with it. It is high
time, so far as Pennsylvania is concerned, that
.such an expression of her sentiments should
.be had as will indicate the true sense of her
jieople upon our national policy and troubles.
Whether she shall speak drought majority of
her representatives, with certain other States
And sections of the country, in a demand for
peace or whether, in compromise of extreme

Against the arbitrary acts of the administration
and thepotiey of the war, are matters which are
left to the judgment and careful deliberation
.of the Conservative members . _ of the present
legWature, accountable to • their constituents
-and to the party for the manner in which their

We cannot borrow the doctrines exclusively

:what Pennsylvania wants is such a set of reso
lutions as will satisfy her own people and
make the Conservative party in the State
strong And eifiective. To avoid carefully any
thing which may furnish any pretext for disaf

are not preiared to Carry out, are 'considera

The very fact that all of a sudden Republi
can journals maifest such enthusiasm for these
organizations inspires.' nte with distrust of
them. They'haft Ire are vastly "
mistaken—their -origin in the result of late
political elections.' We, for one, shall never
admit that becaiso the Democracy is re-assert
ing its ancient power, there is j ust nowany,
particular necessity for new organizations to
sulltain this 'Union. There are hundreds of
honest nien 'and patriots, no doubt, who con
nect themselves with these- societies. They
would be honest men and patriots . outside of
them. There is no'Carthly necessity for such
"Leagues." They can in no way add, vigor' to
the Government. They have no. control over
the public sword or purse. The President and
his Secretary are clothed with the JIM and
limitless management of the Satire phYsical
and financial , means of the country. These
Leagues may turn out a fresh swarm of wordy
orators to deluge the countly with verbal pa
triotism„ taking good care the while to keep
out of all danger themselves, but we have yet to
learn what else s they will effect. True, a mis
erable partisan sheet of this city, 'which has
been preaching mob law, and connecting the
Democracy of this city with murderers and
thieves, has suggested that these Leagues would
be usefal in disseminating such disgraceful
journals as itself, but we don't see yet the, dood
the Union cause would derive from that, nor
indeed, for that matter, the negro cause either.
This movement is a piece of mock patriotism,
gotten up by designing men for political pur
poses. The majority who go, into it from the
very best metives will some day discover that
they have been entrapped. Let , us say to the
Democracy, you have'no use for such stisp'i:.

Admiral Porter had got through Steel's and

there before this time. General Sherman and
his troops were follqwing him up. With the
reduction of Yazoo City and Port Pemberton,
the capture of Vicksburg may be regarded as
certain. It was rumored that Haines' Bluff
was evacuated, and that the Eighth Missouri
had gone up to garrison the place. .
In the Senate of New Jersey, on Tuesday
night, resolutions were passed denying the
truth of the representations, made for partisan
purposes,. that'New Jersey intended to resist,
by force, the execution of certain acts of Con

people of that State are law-abiding and ar
dently devoted to a union of all the States ;-
and while they may condemn and protest
against certain laws as unconstitutional and
unjust.. yet until repealed or declared to be
unconstitutional, they will regard them as
laws, and will confidently look to the courts
and the ballot-box for redress. After an ani

The news frem Gen. Grant's army about
