Tho State Senate.
It is unnecessary to writo onyfhing in
vindication of tho courno of Democratic
Sonotors of Pennsylvania or to reply in
any manner to the abuso hcapod upon
them by tha Abolition press. They bi
liavo now, as they at did at tho com
mencement of the session, that the Senate
is not legally organized, and they act upon
that boliei, Their courio is understood
and approved by tho Democratic party,
and by the intelligent and honest menout
of the party, who dosiro to sco the Consti
tution and laws obscrvod, and safo prece

'.Sir until I believe that tho Senate is
organized under tho Constitution, under
tho law, under tho precedents of Bevcnty
years, I must here, persistently, constantly

Their negative vote mutt not, in all ca
ses, be taken as indicative of hostility to
'tbo tneasuro, but as marking jheir disap
probation of tho illegal aetion of tho major

Yhvj Bounty Question.
The Adjutant General has issued in
structions to Lieut. Col. TJomford, Aoiing
Assistant Provost Marshal of Pennsylva

The Soldiers Pay.
Hon. John L. Dawson, Democrat, has
recently made a very able speech in Con
.gress upon tho subject of tho pay of the
soldiers. He takes tho ground that the
soldier should receive his pay in GOLD,
This in right. A number of tho officers of
the government, ministers to foreign coun
triei; receive their pay in gold. They
receive large salaries and tho most part
live in eplcndid ease. Tho common sold
ier who has to bear the greatest hardship
and expose bis lifo to tho vicissitudes of
battle, receives but a pittance for his pay
per month and that in depreciated paper
monoy. Let thero bo equality in these
matters. If foreign ministers, those fol
lows who live in easo and luxury are, paid
'in gold, so lot the soldier havo.his mouthly
pittance in the same coin so long as -the
Let all bo plaoed on an equal footing.
Mr. Dawson deserve credit for his able
upoecb and the positiou ho has taken.
It is now reported that tho Florida dis
aster is mainly duo to tho cowardice of the
colord troops. Wo do not know how true
this report is, but wo aro very cortainthat
before tbo war is over the negro will not
bo found as brave, enduting, or efficient as
the white. If ho should prove so, then is
all history a fiction.
The extraordinary efforts of Gen. Gil-
Mohe to supprobS all tho facts connected i
with tliio lost battle may havo been to shield
these oolored pets of tho administration.
SJ Last Friday was tho 4th of March.
Three years ago Mr. Linooln, ef Illinois,
ox-railsplitter, j-o., was inaugrated Presi
dent. His now tbo verdict of a large jior
tion even of his own party that his admin
istration has been a failure With the
mass of tho People, tho opinion is that it
is something worse. Has the triumph of
the Sectional party been iu any particular
a benefit to our country, or to tho nogro ?
Has It net proved rather a fearful if not a
fatal curie to .both I
ear We beg leave to remind our abolN
tion friend's that only "ono party" is al
lowed in time of war. Let Lincoln mon
and Chaso men, Fremont mon "silence
their petty differences in the presence of
the great rebellion, when tha lifo of tha na

Vow persons have any juil conception
of the extent of their indoblodtioss to tho
papers for tho information they possess
and tho moral sentiments they cherish.
I Compared wi tli tho paet nges of tho world,
i this is a romark&blv enlightened neriod.
A large portion of the people havo a
considerable sharo o( correct information
on almost all topics of any importance.
Holigion, goograpby, history, and tho
polltioal condition of tho world ; political
economy 5 tlo important features of prac
tical philosophy j something of geology ;
ohemistry as applied to agriculture and
tho mechanic arts, and many other sub
jects aro familiarized to tho popular mind.
Most persons can talk intelligently about
them, pretending to learning or resenroh.
But how do they como by this know-
ledgo I Not at schools, nor at books gen
erally speaking, hut by picking up, hero
and there, from newspapers, small install
Let any ono ask himself whero ho ob
tained his knowledge of any particular
fact Ho is probably unablo to tell, bo
oauso it camo siKntly, imperceptibly, in
newspapers. Tho same is trua in regard
to our best moral sentiment. Thoy aro
suggested, reiterated, and fastened on tho
mind by tho press. The pulpit does much
parental instruction, in many instances,
does much ; and tho press more than
both. Lot any reader of a well oonduo
tod paper open its pages and consider well
its contonts. Thoro aro in a single num
ber somctimos from ono hundrod and fifty
to two hundrod separate and distinct arti
cles, each ono oarrying an idea, a fact or
a scntimont, and stated or illustrated so as
to produce an effect in enlarging tho read
er's store of .knowledge, or giving a right
direction to thought, feeling or action.
Must not all this havo its influenco on tno
roador f We think so.
No reflecting man can fail to see that
tho many visits in a year of a wall con
ducted paper, with a correct, elevalad tone
and withal intcrcstcng in its contonts, must
exert a great moral influence upon domes
tio life. Children growing up under such
an influence aro far mora likely to 'bo in
telligent, correct in their opinions and
morals, and better preparod for the active
duties of life, than thoy could possibly
havo been without it
Mi;. Cox, of Ohio, mado n good hit in
tho iiouso of Representatives on Monday,
Tho Homo had just passed another of the
codes of buncombo resolutions which have
becomo so fashionable, doolaring that the
cause of tho war must bo abolished,1'
"the rebellion must bo crushed." and "the
Union must bo restored," all of which do
about as much good as so many .paper
bullets, wbon Mr. Cox offered tho follow-
Ihsolvcd, That tho rebellion be, and
tho tauio is, hereby abolished.
Tho Houso sawthojoko in an instant,
Iaughad heartily over it, and then passed
tbo resolution by a unanimtios vote. Our
Republican brthren,who havo ruch strong
faith in resolutions and proclamations, will
.probably now regard the rebellion dead,
and bury it alongside of slavery.
Election in New Hampshire.
The olection in New Hampshire, so far
as the. returns have como in, show that tho
Administration, through tho votes of fur
loughed soldiers and tho other exertions
mado, have secued tho re-election of Gov
ernor Gilmore. The majority claimed for
Governor, Gilmoro, judged by the towns
heard from, is four thousand. Five Repub

Nino of tho twolvo Senators elected are
Republicans and a Majority of tha Repre
