Tuesday, Jan. 16. 1866.
M. W. McALARNEY, EDiron.
This body convened on Tuesday of last
peek. The Senate organized by electing
Hon. David Fleming of Dauphin; speaker
and Geo. W. liammerly, of Philadelphia
Clerk. Fi l en. James R. Kelly, of Wash.
ington county was elected Speaker of the
House, and A. W. Benedict,Clerk• Upon
taking his 'Beat Speaker Fleming delivered
he following address:
"Afterexpressing thanks for the honor
conferred, requesting indulgence for er
rors; desiting the exercise of courtesy and
propriety~a conducting debate; and con
gratulating the people upon Lee's surren
der, the Speaker, said ; Then swift upon
the heels ;Of this glorious news came the
sad tidings of the assassination of the groat
and good ' Lincoln . -„It was the last and
crowninglact in the drama of hell born
rebellion.l Joy for a timd was turned into
mourning. All over the land men sat in
mute astonishmenz, almost paralyzed and
sad as if some dear one. had been snatched
from their own hearth stones. 'Thepeo
ple mourned. These halls were draped
in black, land here, as well as all along the
route of the funeral cortege, thousands of
patriotic ikearts flecked to.do honor to their
martyredfPresidekt,and drop a tear beside
bis honored corse.
"But kis tcork was done—and well done.
Be has gene to hie rest and his reward—
and his name is immortal.
"Everits followed events in such rapid
sueeessidn that the retrospect seems like
the bewilderment of a dream. But now
the noise of battle is hushed; the tread of
Martial hosts mustering for the field of
strife is no more beard in the land. The
call for, volunteers to fill demanded quotas
under impending drafts,we trust has teas-..
ed for over. Peace is restored. The rebel
chiefs, f i l o ltely defiant, - are either fugi
tives in iforeien climes, or prisoners of our
Government, or on parole, suing on bend
ed knee for clemency at the hand of that
Government which they so lately defied
and attempted to destroy. The command
ers of those rebel hordes are now asking
mercy from that government, thousands
of whose bravo soldiers, by their conniv
ance, sere tortured or starved to death in
horrible dungeons ! It is a grave question
whether these suppliants, even if their re
pentanbe be sincere, are entitled ,
thing at the hinds of our rulers but to
perish with the sword, which they have
taken. i Justice,humanity, and the future
peace Of the government, would seem to
demand, in the •language of our worthy
ChieOlagistrate, that "treason be made
odious.s' in, the person of at least some of
these Chief traitors. Certainly none should
be eetl free who do not manifest some signs
of honest repentance and 4 desire to return
..to true allegiance. But the defiant tones
of many who presume upon Executive
- clemency, are such as to show most indu
bilitably that they are only sorry for their
defeat, 'and that they are still brim full of
treason. Their repentance is not as real
as that of Judas; for few, if any of them,
have 'yet gone and hanged themselves. I
do not ,say it should be done for thcm,but
'that the question is eminently worthy
of consideration by the authorities of the
nation. ! Certainly none such should ever
be allowed to take any part in the govern
-meet of the nation.
•• "But let us turn from this, fora T
rani, to i contem i plate the result of the
war. 1 It was- commenced by traitors to
sever the Union in order to save and per
petuate I slavery,which was to be its corner
stone. For more than a year President
Lincoln and the government held oilet to
the rebels the olive branch of peace, on
condition that they would lay down their
arms and return to the Union, promising 1
'thein full enjoyment and even new guar
untees for their "peculiar institution."—
Itit i they spurned the offer mistaking the
magnanimity of the Government for weak
:rest -thus verifying the heathen proverb'
that • "Whom the Gods wish to destroy,
they first make mad." So anxious were
theiGrovernment and people of the United
States to preserve the Union and save the
effuSion of blcod, that Congress solemnly
declared by resolution, and the'President
pruclaitned under the great seal of the I
nation, that if the rebels would lay down
their arins,slavery should not be disturbed.
But God, who rules among she nations of
tne-earth, would , not ratify this unholy
Cotapact, but so left our enemies to follow
their own evil counsels, and to glory in
their shame even unto madness ; l and so
inspired our rulers with wisdom, and our 1
tira i ve soldiers with courage, that greater
Piings have been done by us, and for us
than the most sanguine dared to expect
at he commencement of the struggle.---
d now, not - only is the Union restored,
st 4 the ordinance of secession repealed,
tu t t slavery, that source of all our woeS,is
fini,ever abolished ; not only by the-proela
ination of the Executive, but according to
1-iitc indisputable terms of the ConStitution.
And now indeed can the great bell of in
i-enondenee truly proclaim 'liberty throuh
.;iit all the land, to all the inhabitants

We learn that the [Philadelphia and Read

following arrangements :i:---The Philadelphia

gauge over its lint and 'branches, and! the.
Atlantic and Great Western is to lay down
an additional rail from Milton to connect l with
its road, so as to iieceive' the traffic passing
over the respectiire roads. By this means a
connection will he made with Philadelphia
as well as New YOrk. One of the conditions
of the arrangemedt is the establishment of
a line of stearnOips immediately between
Philadelphia andii Liverpool. This is an itn
portant arrangememt, if the rumor is correct.
I am informed that this arrangement con

W.AstusoroN, Dec. 25, itit).
Christmas Day ha's come and nearly gone.
The weather fitts been bad—cloudy above
and muddy below ; but the occasion on the
wholehas been the of enjoyment—quiethome
like enjoyment i --- T if indeed anything in Wash
ington can cat be said, to be home-like.
We , hear mdch abotit a prospective rupture
between the President and Congress. There
is nothing in it. Merl may differ as to de
tails but the great object td be attained; is
perfectly understood and earnestly sought for
by all patriotic men.! .fohnson has but
one object in iview,—ihe speedy and complete
restoration of the States lately in rebellion to
their ConstitUtional Olations. In this object
he will be warmly Seconded by Congress.
Those who Wart tol make political capital
upon the proposed rupture between the Exec
utive and the Legisla:tive branches, will rail
in business. It has ibeen hinted , here, that
the Democratic party, was shortly to come in
to power by means ! of Mr. Johnson—they
uniting with him, nd letting the radical
Congress go t,' griet li n its own way.
Here where the Pillse of political parties
can be felt, it is pa 'nfully evident that the
once glorionS Demo retie Party can never be
revived by Mr. Johnon—or anybody else.
These statements misrepresent the Presi
dent. He is progre sive, patriotic and sens.
ible. It is his earns t wish to aceokiplish as
much in the .interes of eiVilization and hu-
manity during his al l nainistration, as possible.
Ho may make haste slowly but Ins movements
are all in the right direction. If he does not
do all that Might be done—he is noi. the first

we presume unavoidable. Men may buy be

sure to pop out, and, in about nine cases out
of ten it - will come out when least expected,
and least welcome. Those who keep out or
debt and avoid speculation, and oth r er unusu
ally rapid means of becoming rich, 'will have
occasion to be thankful for it, and foe com
mending their prudence and foresight in so
doing. When we learn to live Within our
means and to use home-made good, we shall
be able to get on smoothly. That the next
panic, as it seems it must come, may be the
means of teaching us this, so that we will not
forget it, -is earnestly to be hoped. It will

WASHINGTON, Jan. 4, 1868
The New Tear celebration In this city has
passed off quietly. The weather has been
intensely bad. Nearly everybody got vsav
drunk on Christmas, but they have been
favored with an, appropriate season in
to do penance. An election was held here
in December, at which time those opposed to
Negro _ Suffrage in this District, expressed
their dissent by voting—those in favor of
tendering the right to vote to all men without
regard to color, having represented their views
by written memorials bearing. their names,
and preseneed to Congress by Messrs. Wilson
and Sumner. Some wealthy citizens of the
District have petitioned to the Supreme; Court
thereof, praying that an injunction may issue
restraining the Mayor and Common Council
from paying the costs of that Election. Mr.
Wm. A Cook nppears for the petitioners' rUld
represents: that theyare heavy tax-payers and
very much averse to seeing their money
fooled away. The' learned i counsel for the
petitioners further argues that many of the
;voters at the Election aforesaid canwrite, and
!that the proper way would have been to sign
a petition as numerously as they pleased, and
send it to Congress. Thii certainly would
have been far cheaper. No decision in the
case has yt,t been rendered.
In Alexandria, those opposed to Negro
Suffrage have indicated their chivalric oppo
sition by falling at the derbies pell moll, with
knives, pistols and other weapons: The re
sult is, they have gotten themselves into a
scrape. On getting sober, they found them
selves in the' hands of Ape Yankee soldiers;
and bad the pleasure to bear that a Military
Commission was to be appointed to see to
It has been rumored here for some time
that Chief Justice Chase is not willing that
Mr. Davis should be tried in the United States
Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, on
account of the occupation of that Territoryby
the Military. There doubtless is, in the minds
of all lovers of Constitutianal liberty, a deep
set aversion to military rule. A speedy re
turn to "law and order" is very desirable';
but the Claief.Justice would seem ro be more
nice than wise in this instance, and instead
of hastening forward the return of the Nation
to the old ways he may be the means or de:
laying that wished for time indefinitely.
As the time approaches for the re-assem
bling of Congress the meinbers elect from the
Southern States come flocking in force. It
will gratify their friends to learn that they
possess a rare endowment of patience ; and
as this quality will coma into requisition con
siderably for the next year or two, it is for
tunate that they have been so liberally gifted.
We venture to hope, and we think not with
out reason, that an exception to the general
course will be made in favo'r of those sections
whose peope have had the good sense—and
great kindness, to elect loyal men to come
here—men who, in the South, have withstood
the storm of faction, maintainingtheir loyalty
against odds, challenge our unqualified ad
miration. Men who have failed to come up
to the full standard of manhood, but who
have basely endeavored to turn the madness
of the weak and ignorant to their own ad
vantage, and who have rushed headiong into
treason should be frowned down, execrated,
kept out in the cold—if for no other reason,
out of regard for their unfortunate constitu

interests of the country will admit, to a specie

TAYLOR Faun, Noarot, 'Va., Jan. 4,'66.
DEAR Bovs : I believe there are a doren_of
you who will know who this is to; if I can
write what will interest o. hers as well, I shall
be happy. IBut I find my time here so com
pletely filled up, that ;liven my promise to
writelo you all at once; is somewhat bard to
redeem. I suppose most ; of yon-have read at
least a part of the President ' s Message, and
formed your own opinion thereon,L:either
with or without havingread some newspaper
opinion first. But 'there are boys here who
seem to me to have natural powers very much
like your own who &I not know that fthe
President issues au annual message at the
meeting of Congress—they do know that there
Isla President, and that the "Rebels killed
Ahraham Lincoln"---se they" say. Looking
things from here, you do not seem to need
yloch but [ what you are capable of doing for
urselvei, but if I can help you to a better
IMowledg4 than you would else obtain of the
Istory that is now being lived, I shall not
think the time spent in vain.
I My journey here was uneventful enough.
The Erie Railroad sustained its reputation of
b l oing 'always behind time, by landing us in
IkTew York at eight in the evening when we
should have been there about eleven in the
morning, but I was so thankful it was' "no
worse" that Leonid not stop to complain. I
Spent a busy week in New York, revisiting
but few of the familiar places. The Hygienic
Institute has been repaired and much im
proved in outward appearance. The first
time I called, alt the people I wanted to see
at the wedding dinner of the principal
physician, Dr. Matsu; so I bad to go another
day. I passed the place where Barnum's
Museum was burned. Men were at work
clearing away the rubbish, and digging deep
enough to set one of our "country houses all
below ground, "or nearly. We sailed from
New York on the 23d of Nov. in the steam
ship Albemarle, of the Livingston Line from
New York to Richmond. Going on board,
we received a foretaste of what was in store
for us. Colored people were doing whatever
was to be done, inside. I learned nothing
about the sailors. I saw but two white per
sons connected with the ship—the captain
and purser. Ih the harbor we saw the neble
ship. Atlaista, of the .Aspinwall line, lying at
quarantine. It came nearest my ideal of a
sea-going vessel of anything I have ever seen.
The hospital ship, Florence Nightingale, lay
at some distance, with the cholera cases on
bpard—as the gentlemen on board ship said.
We made the passage to Norfolk i s twenty
seven hours, about , three hours less than the
usual time. At Norfolk, again, there were
only colored people in waiting,--hackmen
and porters down to boys ,of ten years old
who were ready to earn a few cents by car
rying a satchel. We took a ha& to No. 5
Freemason street, the residence of the teach
ers in Norfolk. The family consists of the
Superintendent, Mr. H. C. Percey, a brisk,
live young man of twenty-three: or four, a
young lady honsekeeper and seven or eight
teachers. I have seldom seen a' ompany of
young people seem to enjoy themselves better
than they. They spent a half bent before tea
discussing matters connected with the school,
from which we gathered some hints with ref
erence to • our labors. One of the teachers
showed us some compositions, written by
the colored children, which she was correct
ing. One, by a lad of fifteen, I believe she
said, interested me much. It was entitled,
"What I mean to be," and was a series of
good resolutions, such as I suppose boys often
form. One of his expressions was, "I do not
mean to be a loafet going from- place to
place. I mean to have a home.? He closed
with, "I mean to be an honor to my mother
and my dear teachers."
A hack took us out to the Farm, nine miles .
from Norfolk. The scenery accorded so well
with the descriptions I have teed of Virginia.
that I was hardly conscious of seeing any
thing new. The road was level; the country
looked very much like an old blackberry field
grown up to young pines. The pine here is
a long-leaved species, called hard or yellow
pine. Taylor Farm is an estate of seventeen
hundred acres, now held by the Government.
Our house stands on the south side of the
little bay enclosed by Willoughby Point. The
bay is called Bemis Bay, The Rip Raps and,.
Fortress Monroe aro plaiely visible from our
windows, If you could see the shipping we
see in Hampton Roads, you would under
stand-better than you ever did the definition
you used to learn in Geography of a Road.
Over two hundred vessels were wind-bound
there a short time since, and the appearance
at night, when each seemed to have a light
in sight, was very fine.
I have a chance to send this to Norfolk to
day. It I neglect it, I may have to wait a
week, so will close here for this time.
Truly Yours, E. C. H.
