Thomas S. Ashe,
Milton I. Southard,
We had boped to have the final vote of the Senate to present in this number, and liave delayed the closing up of these memoranda beyond the proper time, to that end. But the Senate, with all its presumed dignity and superior code, is of late very much of a partisan political laboratory of president factory; indeed, it is apparently little better than the House so far as that lofty statesmanship is concerned which, in its attention to the best interests of the country, rises above party. The two parties in the Congress are alike so intent on gaining every possible advantage over their opponents-on making political capital and bolstening up their respective "chances" sor the coming election--that questions like that of the Centennial Exposition and the general welfare of the nation must necessarily yield to " amnesty," and like questions which afford opportunities to demagogues to spread themselves and to inveigle opponents into damaging utterances.
We cannot longer wait for the Senate's action, especially as there is no assurance to-day (February 2d) when that august body will find time to act on the question. Doubtless the bill as it passed the House, with the outrageous amend. ment of Mr. Springer, will pass the Senate. It is as well that it should, for were the Senate to amend it it would require farther action on the part of the House, and the Exposition would perhaps be quite over ere the appropriation could be available.
The Sunday Dispatch of the zoth ult., has a strong editurile on the action of the House, from which we extract a few passages :
“ Aster subscriptions and payments of over five millions of dollars to the authorized stock of the Exhibition has been secured, the Government was asked to take the remainder of the stock on the same terms as citizens. The House of Rep resentatives finally adopted the proposition, with a provin) that the one million five hundred thousand dollars shall be repaid out of the profits before the other subscribers to Cen: | building has been provided for, and that their effort should tennial stock shall receive payment.
