on this subj

cannot hop r future success without a e i

Under cif* distances so discouraging, it
seems to oo that every Democrat, who is

It is th'e invariable, the anavoidable result
of cnaneOtittg the affairs of the state with
those of tide churCh, that the errors anti de
lusions ot law-givers are more deeply en

when they are not invested with religious
sanctions;! And it is not a little remarka
ble that 4 religioiSs sect, whose numbers, if
they do knot predominate, at least entitle
them to 'great - respect, in the discussion of
this question are,: although somewhat divi

ty is filled with young men, anxious to be
commissioned as captains and lieutenants in
each arm of the service. ' The; greatest num
ber of applications are fOr the drago4ns•—
The impression now abroad is, that no one
will be' commissioned to recruit, but that
all who desire to receive appointments must
first procure companiei, and then, if they be
proper persons, of good standing and fair
repute, they will be duly mustered into ser
vice, and receive the commissions they so
much covet. The army bill was delayed
in the Mouse by the impaent discussion
of the slavery question. It is now in the
Senate, and has been there for some time;
Shortly after it was under consideration our
Senator, Mr. Cameron, offered an amend
ment to the bill as it had :come from the
hands of the Military Committee. He pro
posed to give a bounty of'a quarter section
of land to those who should serve through
the war, or be honorably discharged, and al
so provided for thq widows and orphans of
those who should dieln the service. This
amendment was opposed, and as it appeared
to many, from captious and unfair motives.

It seemed as if some who were averse to the .
-amendment, were piqued that Mr. Cameron
shouid,_with his forethought and sense of
justice, have been the father of a piopesi
tion so wise and so humane. It was con-
tended l ‘ t,y some that the amendment -as it
was phrased, as informal, and lacked some
provisions t 6 r der it effective, and that the
subject shoal not be embodied in a bill, but
be the object of specific and distinct legisla
tion. Mr. Cameron, with great clearness
and force, and with an energy and, decision
of purpose that gratified all, declitied to
withdraw his proposition, and urged that
