. Another source by which millions of the
peoples rnoser have been abstracted from

pockets, ia in the purchase and sale of
Lorses and mules. The Government is cow
paying on an average oi $133 per head for
horses. . On this amo-int the seller cr con
tractor has to pay a heavy per-ceatage to
aome relation or business partner cf the
officer whose duty ia to examine tbetn te
fore they can be passed. If he fails to pay
bJick mail, bi stock is rejected. The seller
is disheartened when a sharper proposes to
buy him out at a great sacrifice. In his ex
tremity he strikes) a bargain, , when the
sharper immediately presents them to the
inspecting officers, who passes them, al
though the same drove may have been re
jected at unfit the day before. By the re
turn of a single sale made of unsound
. horses by tha ; Government, in November
last, we have an exposure of cold and dar
. ing Healing, robbery, and imbecility on the
part of the blacksnake official. Ihe lot
sold composed eighty . .Lorses and nice
mules brought, op from North Carolina,
and placed ia market for sale at auction at
a cost for transportation from: N. C, ol
twenty cue dollars per bead. Of these
eixty six were eoid at an average of S3 S3
per bead, giving a total oft521 75,., while
the mere coal of bringiag'them to the auc

$50, while the remaining thirteen were dis
posed o! at ra!es varying between 20 and
,S50, with (a very decided inclination towards
the lower sum.. Four of the horsea were

fifteenth of what their bead carcasses would

old at a donar eacn ; tnree at two uouars

that many were to the full in as good con

Debarment, only needing a few weeks of
idleness and good feeding in the country to
make them worth from one hundred and
fifty to two hundred dollars per bead. Who

bo led back to the Government stables to
t be purchased the '"knowing: ones" who
were present as purchasers at the sale, next
appearing as sellers, and receiving the full
government price for rattle which but a fenr

and nine dollars. This matter is a very lis-

the Democratic journals ia the political I
campaigns of 1S5S and in I860 1 Democrats
then saw the rising cloud in: the? north
they saw, and predicted alt that has since
come to pass, they warned the people
against the treasonable teachings of Aboli
tionism ; and raised the cry ot danger to the
Union. They succeeded , in staying the
deluge cf blood in 1856, but were defeated
in 1860. Whilst in power, they preserved
the government intact ; and, notwithstand
ing, the financial crisis through which the
Administration of 'James Buchanan passed,
the treasury and country were bovh better
off than now. . : ,.,v .
The campaign of 1860 came, and passed :
and, though, Democratic journals did all in
their power to save the Uuion, the people
seemed possessed with a wild lanaiicism
on the slavery question. ' A party that had
appealed only to men' sectional feelings
now succeeded in their cherished design,
and elected Mr, Lincoln President by a
minority of the popular vote : a result that
was entirely sectional, because not a single
Southern sta:e cast its vote for the successful
candidate. Though a number of the states
had seceded when Mr. Lincoln took hi
eat we wen ttill at peace and the greatest
statesmen of the country endeavored to ef
fect a compromise such as has been effect
ed ten years belore by the great men of that
day. The past was peaceful, prosperous
and happy. The present is full of fearful
forebodings. The country ia deluged with
blood war spreads its devastation on every
side : all this is the result of Abolition
teachi-g and Abolition rule. We need
nothing more for proof. Compare the past
under Democratic role with the present
under Abolitionism and want no stronger
argument in favor of Democracy.
The Slats Senate.
We invite epecial attention to the state
ment prepared by the Democratic members
of the Senate, for eatry on the Journal, de
fining and vindicating, as it does most effec
tually," the position which they have taken
with regard to the organization To Re
publican it will no! signifj much that the
precedent of seventy years are against
them ; but to those who wish to get at the
real merit of the controversy, we commend
the fact, that from 1794 down to the present
daj jthere has never been an occasion upon
which an outrage like that which Ihe Re
publicans are striving to accomplish has
been at:emp:ed. We take it for granted
that Judge Advocate Knox, waB not familiar
with the well established usage of the Sen-
ante, when he volunteered his opinion, but
with the exception of his proffered advice,
there is not a shadow of authority for the
course which the Abolitionists have chosen
to adopt. I: may be that it is because the
law is against them that they have chosen
the policy that they have ; but we are glad
to be able to af ore onr readers that their
Representatives in Loth branches are re
solved to do their duty, and that unless the
factionista will abandon their ur.just and
unreasonable demands, there will be no or
ganization of the Senate until a new Sena
tor is elected. At a caucus held on Wed
nesday evening, the Democratic members
of the House unanimously adopted the fol
lowin resolution :
Resolved, That the Democratic mpmbers
of the House of Rei'resniali ves, represent
ing upward of 254,000 Democrats of the
State, approve of th course of the Demo
cratic Senators in their vindication oi their
constitutional rights, against the usurpa
tions of the Republican Senators, and that
they trust they will adhere in their course
until the Senate is organized in a constitu
tional manner, and in accordance with the
precedents ol the Seriate for seventy years. -
THE STATE SEXATE DIFFICULTY,
Statement of the Cemoeratie Members.
The undersigned Senators beg leave to
submit the following statement, ia vindica
tion of their action during the present con
test for Speakership of the Senate :
In many respect this contest has no pre
cedent in the histot) of the Commonwealth.
Its importance to those parties anxious lor
legislation, as well a3 to those engaged in
the struggle, seems to justify, il it dos not
demand, a fair statement of the case for the
consideration of the public.
The Senate is composed of thirty-three
members, thirty two were present at the
time fixed fh the Constitution for their
meeting, and one a prisoner of war in, the
rebel States. Of those present at the previ
ous balloting for Speaker, sixteen are Demo
crats, and sixteen are Republicans. Before
the Senate met on the 5ih inat., each party
held a caucus and nominated a candidate
for Speaker and Clerk A number of ballots
were hsd up to the adjournment on Friday
last, for Speaker, which resulted ia a tie
vote each time.
The Republicans anticipating, before the
Senate met, this result, conceived the idea
ol reaining their friends in office by ad
hering to the party orgar.izaiion.of the pre
ceding session, under the plea that the Sen
ate has a "perpetual organization," and to
carry out this scheme, the late Speaker took
the chair, called the Senate to order, the re
turns of the election of Senators were read,
the clerks were directed to call the roll and
the Speaker 'announced that the Senators
elect would come forward and be qualified.
The tour new Democratic Senators present
ed a written protest against the right of a
Speaker of the past session to qualifif them
before he is re-elected ' and duly qualified
himself. Still, by taking the oatb of ofiii e
in thai manner, their names were placed
upon the roll, and their rote unquestioned,
which would hat have teen the case bad
they declined to qualify' at that! time., A
resolution, was then efTered, and . unani
mously adopted, to proceed to 'an election
for Speaker, and a number oV unsuccessful
bailor were taken under the resolution.
, The Republican Senators, finding it im
possible to re elect their late Speaker,' pro
ceeded to force ah acknowledgment of their
" pepetualorganizati&n,',' by introducing
many matters of legislation distinct from
that pertaining to the required annual or
ganizatiou of the Senate, and the sixteen
Democratic Senators rotei against such im
proper proceeding, and defeated itv Thus
.the co&iesl confirmed dcaag the cession of
last week; and how much longer it will
continue no one seems'dlsposed to foretell.
This conflict of opinion between Sena
tors should be adjusted at the earliest ps
sible moment, and when the Republican
side of the Senate scoff at any compromise,
they must submit to the laws and prece
dents which have directed all past organi
zations of this body, or be regarded as usur
pers of place and power disregarding
alike the acts of their predecessors, the or
ganic law, and the best interests of the
The ninth section of article first of the
Constitution says, "each House shall choose
a Speaker and other officers." This is im
perative and has never been disregarded
until now by this attempt oi the Republi
can bfficers to hold over. The words ,;each
house" are repeated in the Constitution
several times, and mean each branch of the
Legislature. The ''house" is composed ol
old and new members, and it was not in
tended by the iramers of the Constitution,
nor claimed by any previous Senate, that
old officers should preside over a new Sen
ate and new members. The Constitution
does not say that "each house" shall chootue
its Speaker annually, but that is i's mean
ing and such has been the practice under it
for seventy odd years.
To divest this novel plea of ''perpetoal
organization" of every pretense of right or
custom on the part of its authors, the Sen
ate Journal have been carefully examined
back to the year 1794, and the result of the
examination is stated briefly as follow ;
From 1794 to 1F64 no late Speaker hns
ever attempted to qualify new Senators, and
no rif'jj Svei iker h is administeied an oath to
any Senator elect until qualified as Speaker
Limself. At every annual meeting of the
Senate, all the officer wpre elected or re
elected and qualified ia due form by the
From 1794 'o 1864, the chair r.i cbjcayi
vacant duing bnlloliiJi for Speaker, and the
Journals show that the successful cancfi
dat8 '-took the ahiir," or was "conJmteJ to
it" by other Senators, made hi acknowl
edgments and invited some old Senator to
qualify him. ,
From 1794 to 1864, all the the Senators
voted for Speeker in alphabetical order,
without the official -designation, except in
1825, when Thomas Iiuroside voted as
1 late Speaker but he waj no: a candi
date for re election.
From 1794 to 1821 in the Journal made
up during the annual organizations of the
Senate, he is designated as ' late Speaker ; '
and from that time to the present he is de
iauated a ''Speaker," until the motion to
proceed to ect a Speaker prevails, when
he i referred to as '"having vacated the
In several instance? there were a num
ber of ballots for Speaker, some of which
were a tie, the chair always vacant und the
late Speaker voting with other Senators in
alphabetical order, fn 1842, there were
thirty five ballois for Speaker, and much
time consumed by the contest During the
strngnle, several efforts were made to elect
a Speaker pro tempore, even for a few hours
but they were unsuccessful.
In 1838 i the only instance on record of
a lute Speaker entertaining any motion not
strictly pertaining to the orsanization and
that wa in relation to contested seats, but
when the Senate proceeded to elect a
Speaker, Mr: Penrose vacated the chair. . He
was re-elected on the first ballot, and "took
In 1855, on the 4th day and on the twen
ty seventh ballot, a Speaker was chosen.
The late Speaker was the unsuccessful can
didate. He did not occupy the chair, nor
attempt to qualify the eleven new Senators
pieem. They uere qualified by the Speak
er elected, after he was qualified himself.
In every election of Speaker the clerks
have acted as tellers,, except in 1814. when
a Senator wa naned to act one of the tel
lers, aud, judging Irom the journals, they
have conducted the elections a presiding
In 1801 1813, and 1819, the Speakers re
signed their offices near the close cf the
session, in these words :
''The Speaker rernin 'a the Senate that in
case of death or resignation of the Governor,
the Speaker of the Senate is ih person ap
pointed by the Constitution to exercise the
office of Governor until another Governor
shall be duly qualified; that the time lor
which he was elected Senator will expire
immediately preceding the day of the gen
eral election ; and that his office of Speaker
.will expirs accordingly a: the same time;
that from a consideration of ihese circum
stances, the propriety of electing a Speaker
who may continue in that office until the
meeting of the next General Assembly in
December next is evident."
; , From this language, and from the prac
tice of tho.e men who framed the constitu
tional prov'iMons referred to, it i very evi
denf that no Speaker, whether he held over
or was re 'elected for the vacatiorj, has been
or can be the Speaker of the Senate alter
the meeting of the General Assembly.
Every Legislature has been considered in
dependent of the preceding one, and has
invariably elected "its Speaker and other
officers" as directed by the Constitution. It
has been left for the Republican Senators
of this eesion to make the discovery, that
a "political necessity,;'. under the cloak of
' perpetual organizaion,'' will justify an on- j
preedented and "dangerous usurpation for
the sake of a few petty office.
From this examination of the Journals,
back nearly to the date of the adoption of
the Constitution, it as ascertained that the
Democratic Senators have aU the precedents
nearly one hundred in number to justify
their co-urse in this contest,' wh'ilst the' Re
poblican Senators cannot point to a single
cae sir.ee 1794, to justify their.
And in view of constitutional require
ment referred to and the precedents for so
long a period in the history of the . State
there is but one proper and incoatestible
course to be pursued by Senators upon this
floor, and that is, to be guided by the law
and the experience ol the past, and resist
all violations of the one, und innovations of
the other, firmly and fearlessly to the ecd.
.r la coaclasion, the Dndcrsited beg leare

LATE WAR NEWS.
. From Friday's Papers.
There is a slight glimmer from the Wet
which seems io indicate that the enemy
contemplate opening an early, and bloody
campaign. General Johnston maintains a
bold front along the Chickamauga, and has
recently ben reinforced. His guerrillas are j
very active and annoy the Federal troops
excessively. Every one at Chattanooga
appear to be on the alert as if something
was feared. Whether the enemy will
attack soon, however, is not yet evident.
In East Tennessee, the same activity
prevails General Longstreet has been rein
lorced, and has advanced from Rogersville
to Blatr's Cro Roadsfifteen miles north
west of Knoxville. , He ha lately had a
contest with the Federal troops at Straw
berry Plains, a short distance south of
Blair's Cross Roads, though with what re
sult is r.ot known. He still holds his
position, however, which is a very strong
one, and has a force muc h superior to tha
at Knoxville. He is in full possession of all
means ol access to Cumberland Gap.
Everything i quiet on the R-ipidan. The
thaw has sunk the army into impassable
mud. There will probably be no move

cannon cannot be budged ; the men can
scarcely walk, and Gen. Meads is absent.
