There was a decided sensation in the

by Te.rnqndo WoodWdiniing to the im

While the yeas and nays were being called

agreed to defeat Mr. Wood's resolution, if
Ani4l - 11ile,,and then .to pass another to the
' sanie:general effect, without mentioning the

!together with six Republicans—Butler and
,-Varns , ,vOith among the number s After the
;defeat of lhis resolution Mr. Tyner, of Incil
„pna, offered one, which was adopted, refer

such testimony warrants articles of im

nerdic's Minnequa county bill was re
' Of*c favorably to thellouse last Wednes
day. The committee are reported to have
• Stood pine in favor to five against - the bill.
Prom's published synopsis of the bill it is
evidently open to very serious objections on
' general grounds, to say nothing of the local
:opposition• it will encounter in the several
gauntlets affected by it. It provides, for in-
Stance, for the appointment of three com
missioners, who are named in the bill, and
:Who are authorized "to issue bonds to pay
indebtedness contracted by trustees.or com
missioners herein before provided, which
bonds shall be payable in not less than twen
ty, years, at 7.8 percent. interest." This is
in effect bestowing upon three men selected
by Peter Herdic) unlimited power to,:issue
bonds for an unlimited amount,' it may be
8100,000, or $1,000,080, or, even a greater
sum... And these bonds, tolbe issued at any
time, so far as appears from the bill, are to
become a perpetual mortgage upon the prop
eity ci the people of the new county until
paid on by them. In all the history of
Pennsylvania legislation" we believe there
was never ,a more barefaced scheme con.
coctedfOr defrauding the - people than is dis
ci-aid by this bill. It is ,claitabd by some
-of the Bradford county papers that the
.bOundoriesvf the new county as laid down
• innate bill will include an area of only about
280 square miles. If this estimate is cor
rect; the bill-is clearly unconstitutional, the
Constitution providing that no .new county
shall be established containing less than 400
square Mick But it seems hardly possible
that the movers of this precious scheme
could • have miscalculated la so vital a point.
It is evident from the tone of the local press
that there is bitter opposition to Peter's
scheme In Bradford,county, and that its en.
envies are increasing in number in I,ycom.
• fag, where it has been claimed thatit would
entounter no opponents. We have faith
that it can never become a law in its pres
ent form, at least.
The Nredit Mobilier 'Report.
On the first day of the present session: of
Congress Speaker Blaine moved the appoint:
meat of a committee toinvestigate whether
any member of the House had been bribed
by Oakei Ameit or any other person or cur
poration in - any matter relating to his legis.
latividuty. The Members of the commit
tee then appointed, and whose duties were
thus broadly defined,' have Wen diligently
engaged . until within the last few days in
taking testimony touching the matter sub•
pitted to them. Their labors have at last
ended, and their conclusions have been em
bodied Ina lengthy report which was sub.
initted to.the Rouse East Tuesday. •
Iti was hardly to be expected that the judg
meat of arifeommittee, however able, MI•
partial, or judiciai hi tone, would be acqui
esced in, with any approach to unanimity, •
by the whole country. During the progress
Of the investigation the testimony has, froni
day to day, been- spread before the public;
political writers have ' formed opinions upon
ix'erte statements, and have not been slow
in expreising them; the evidence,'' s ad
duced, has been the absorbing theme 4f -dis
cussion in all political circles, and there has
been hardly any of that suspension of pub
lic opinion which is so necessary in fortrung
a just judgment in all investigations a.,f u
semiludiCial nature, as this has been.
It is, 'therefore, not to be wondered at
law many men' honestly di4ent. froth the
conclusions reached by the committee; and
lit Course It, was to be , expected that the
partisan press would labor to wrest the facts
proven to the.ittlury of political : opponents.
It was to be expe'Cted . that the New York
Woridr,would:characterlie a rePortywhich
woes not sweeping/3 , condemn everir Rep*
*can wlacmio -67
Oakes Ames as a white-washing report, and
declare that the verdict of the committee
goes by favor; that the report is a mockery
of justice and a disgrace to the men who
drew it. All this is matter of course, and
will puss for what it is worth—and that is
little enough.
But whoever hag watched the COIIVBC of
e committee and read their report :With
the sole purpose of learning the I rirthoutist
admit that they have discharged the diffl
cult and delicate duly imposed upon them
iorotlghly and hapari They have ex
hientlysonght to obtain all the light, possi
II )
up en t e Matter, and have Oen to ev
eryl mA i n a eased the greatest latitude in
proving hisinnorenee. There kris been ap
parent no effort to shield any man or to.un•
justly prejudice any man during the inves•
tigation, rind now that the conclusion has
been reached the testimony in each case is
fairly summed up and spread before the
country. if the committee have erred in
judgment in any cure, it must be admitted
that they have furnished'the amplest means
for detecting their - error and correcting their
conclusions. After Nil consideration they
conclude that those members of the House
who accepted stock in the Credit, Mobilier
did so without any corrupt motive or un
derstanding, except James Brooks, and they I
recommend that he 'and Oakes Ames be ex=
pelled the House.
They arc of the opinion that Mr. Ames
deliberately attempted to bribe his fellow
members. The fact that he sold them stock
at par when he welt knew it to be worth
twice us which,. and his letter to WComb in
which he said they needed more friends in
Congress, and thrkk lie intended to place the
stock "where it Would• do most igood," are
adduced as proof of his guilty intention.—
' ft would seem that there could be hardly
two opinions on that point.
As to Mr. Brooks, it will be retilet , ' vied
that he was a governinent din" ill the
Pacific road, and that 'as such li..ector
was exii l ressly prohibited by law fro:. hold
ing stock. In spite of this, lie- received
much more of the stock which he was abso
lutely prohibited front holding than any
other member as to whom no such prohibi
tion existed. The conclusion of the report
—that he acted with an entire disregard of
Ids official duty and *obligations; and that,.
while appointed to guard the public inter
ests in, the road, he kilned With the promo
ters of a scheme whereby the Government
was defrauded, and shared in the 'spoils—
will hardly be controverted-11 any man: •-
lii fact, so far as we 'have notitedoto:nian
nor journal has under i takeil to question the
justice of the committ4es - conclusions) re
specting Slessrs. Ames sail Brooks. The
main complaint is that vtery other member
who can be shown tolhaVe received,stock is
not included in a like condemnation. And
Gen. Butter is reported as saying if Ames
Is to be turned out 1 for bribing members,
then the members bribed should go with
him. But Mr. Ames is not condemned for
bribing, but for 'atte mpting to bribe mem•
begs—a matter of quite a different nature.—
It is evident thee thediscusssion of the re•
port by the House, w l hich is to begin to:day - , -
will "be full, thorough, and independent,
and the couniry is tO be congratulated on
the fact that tliN great national 'scald is
to be thoroughly cojsidered from every pos:

WASIIIGTON, Feb. 18, 1878.
One of our morning papers under the
head'of "Pacts, SpeCulations, and Rumors,"
states that the Poland committee of investi
gation in regard to the, Credit Mobilier,
which is now completing its report, "feel
very deeply the gravity Of the duty imposed
upon them, and fire, particularly sensitive to
the demands of pUblic opinion as it finds
expression through the press, but they are
determined to do hill justice to the accused
parties regardless of any fleeting desire that
may prevail for summary punishment." It
appears to your correspondent singular that
a newspaper should assert that the commit
tee are sensitive to the opinions of the press.
.What have they to do with anything but
the facts, the laiv as applied to them?
A large part of the press, upon a hearing of
one side only, have repeatedly condemned
the accused, and clamored for their convic
tion, and condign punishment before any
opportunity was given for reply or defense.
Most of the editors who assume dictation Lu
regard to pending trials of any kind reverse
the common-law maxim which presumes in
nocence, and write against accused persons,
especially if they be political opponents, as
though the law presumed every man guilty
until he proved himself innocent.
It is said that Wm. M. Everts and Caleb
Cushing have prepared opinions from the
testimony that no proof of bribery has been
obtained. If these opinions have been pre
pared by them as counsel for accused mem
bers, they are entitled to no special weight,
as the committee and the House of Repre
sentatives are sole judges of the law and
the facts. The white heat into which pop
ular prejudice has been wrought is at least
no verysuittible atmosphere for the breath
ing olf- a qpolar assembly like the House,
but it is to be hoped that justice, and that
alone, will he the 'standard of its judgment
in regard to the guilt or innocence of mem
bers in regard to this business.

4 New Republic.
Anything may happen in Spain. In that
?nions country the apparent impossibilities
of yesterday are always capable of being
the accomplished facts of to day. A little
while ago the brave- young Xing of Spain
seemed firmly seated on his throne. Now
he has abdicated, and a Republic has been
This news was wholly unexpected, both
because it is nt variance with the character
of the Ring and unwarranted by the con
dition of the country. If Amadeus has
proved beyond dispute the possession of
any one kingly quality, that quality is his
intrepid bravery. On landing in Spain he
was met by the ghastly corpse of Prim, the
man who made him King. A prince of less
courage would have hesitated to assume a
crown when the hand that ()tiered it had
been struck with the vengeance of his ene
mies; but there was no hesitation in the gal
lant young Savoyard. He fearlessly under
took the tremendous task of governing
Spain, and has never faltered in his duty
from that day to this. He has carried on
constant conflict with arrogant and selfish
Ministers. He has suppressed with firmness
and wisdom the chronic insurrections to
which the country is continually a prey.—
lie has shown an utter disdain Of the assas•
sins who have constantly dogged him, and
has walked unarmed and nnuttended thro'
the streets of Madrid, as though assassina•
,lion wag_not the natural sport of the Span
:ish patriot.. Whyhe should now suddenly
change his determinatinn to bring peace and
order to Simin, and should express his anx
iety to leave the Spaniards to their own de
, vices, is not easily explained. There is the
:Usual Carlist insurrection in progress in the
northern'provinces, but there is no reason
; En suppose it will prove successful.
•.There is a rumor that he is dissatisfied
: with the promotion given by the Cabinet to'
an obnoxious General, hut he is surely too
,well acquainted with the character of the
average Spanish General to make a serious'
matter of the undeserved promotion of oncel
ruffian more or less. The only theory upo
which his abdication can be explained i.
tie supposition thnt the impu6ive temp-et
went of his race has suddenly made hint
- -feel the hopelessness of converting the
Spaniards into an orderly and industrious
people, and that in a moment of depression
he has resolved to wash his hands of the
mud of Spanish political and to return to
"the_peace and quiet of his Italian home.
'mi. - , present Constitutlon of Spain was the
result of the deliberations of a constituent
Cortes elected by popular vote in the begin
ning of 1800.- One of its sections declare,
that " the form of government of the Span
ish nation is the monarchy." According to
.our notions of constitution-making this pro•
vision ought to have been valid until there
hail been a fredi appeal to the people on the
question of changing it. The Latin races
manage these- things differently, however,
and the popular branch of the Cortes ap
pears to have proceeded to amend the Con
stitution in defiance of its own provisions.
We say the popular branch, because there
is a constitutional provision against any
joint deliberation by Congress and the Sen
ate—a proceeding which at such a crisis as
the present might naturally have been look
ed for. The lowei house of the Cortes con
sists of over 400 membeis. The proposal
to adopt a republican form of government
wtis voted on by only 291 members. The
vote in its favor-259—constiluies, howev
er, a sufficient majority of Congress to prove
that Spanish political parties have coalesced
on this proposal with a degree of patriotic
unanimity which, could we shut our eyes to
the lessons of the last few years. would war

gard* to the future of the new Republic of
-The present Movement is virtually a rev
olution, though accomplished by act of
Congress. In all Spanish revolutions the
first question is, What will the army do?—
Amid all the governmental changes of the
present century the army has borne the lead
ing part. Will it quietly stand by now and
see a'ommentous change effected in which
it haspnal no hand? Don Alfonso, the son
of Queen Isabella, is understood to have.
numerous adherents in the Spanish
rnenta. 1 A casual eineute in a barrack might,
any hour, cast to the four winds the realiza
tion of the most sangniAe dreams of Figue
ras and Castelar. The Radical leaders who
have coalesced to bring about the establish
ment of the Republic mayiprore strong en
ough to maintain order in tile country which
has been called upon with such startling
suddenness to exercise the functions of self
government; but then their administrative
abilities will have merely begun.: There is
a strong infusion of socialism in the creed
of the Spanish republican,
and - a very pro
nounced hatred to tire Roman Catholic
Church. Whoever assumes the Presidenc
. . _
of the new Republic will find hiinself ham
pered by influences greatly resembling those
which are causing so much trouble lb 31.
Thiers. The people, who are really reptib
tican in sentiment, will demand changes
which will frighten those who 'will expect
' to see the countrygoverned as if the Presi
dent was an elective sovereign. Then, the
intensely aristocratic prejudices of the terri
torial gentry of Spain, and the submissive
end superstitious devotion to the Church- of
its peasantry, will create innumerable ob. ;
stades to anything like Consistent' republi-
Can development. The jarring .offold 'and'

to the time honored influence of the • one
and the eggiessive, uncompromising spirit
of the other.-
In 'addition to all this will arise the tine*.
