PROM DES MOINES. .-njttl ctl FrK-- (lou I.irel.v siwlal llcruld. DBS MOINES, Jan. 23. From the very, foil report of legisla- tive- proceedings sent each day to tlio HKKAI.II its readers will Hud- but IHtle new in tlie more tardy intelligence brought from the capital by inu.il. And now that I have mentioned the tardi- ness of mail intelligence, allow mo to remark that it is not :i comparative term. The mail facilities between the capilalautl the northern aud norheaBt- prn portions of the stato are abominable. Take an example. The HERALD of Tuesday morning is in excellent time if it arrives here by Saturday evening, and tho occasions of excellent time of this sort are more rare than those of even later arrivals. The difficulty oc- curs in the mail route. By some sort of old contract the mail from Dubuque is taken to Cedar Rapids, over the South- western road, there after due delay shipped by the Northwestern road to Booue. and Jjfter another delay is tint into an old-fashioned stage coach to en- counter Jhe perils of about forty mile.s of rough .staging. The wonder is not that the mails arrive late but that they come at all. We could suggest a reme- dy, and conclude to do so. Let the mail for the capital be sent by the same route one of your citizens would choose ivero he intending to visit DCS Moines, either via Tja Salle, aud Davenport, or to Elairstown and across toMareugo.by stage ten miles. Then a journey which a traveler accomplishes iu less than two days need not require five days for the mails. The legislature is moving not so smoothly as at first. There is a healthy sort of friction, and I predictsotnething warm from it before the session closes. The friction coasistsin part of the cow- ardice of the radical majority and large- ly of tho impudence of the democratic minority, who have somehow conceiv- ed tho idea that they have rights which must be respected nnd a mission of re- spectable legislation which shall be ac- complished.- It is very impudent of them, truly, but the democratic mem- bers, in the house especially, are work- ing up a very "reign of terror" among tho majority. The radicals never see a copperhead addressing "Mr. but at once they are seized with fear and trembling. Such shaking of legis- lative knees and rattling of legislative teeth was never before witnessed at this capital. The truth is out allast, aud the ctiusu of all the radical terror is developed. There are two questions which the rad- ical members of the general assembly came hero lo avoid. Strangle them if possible without making a fuss about it, but strangle them fiissoruo fuss. When f say the radical members I do not mean all of them, but only those party mana- gers who- have seen iu Massachusetts the lesson of temperance fanaticism and in Ohio that of negro siiHrage, and have hud brains enough to be ablu to compre- hend these lessons. A very largo num- lierof tho are of the ol.is.-t who never learn any tiling and are still naoro unfortunate in having been i-reatod without nny large amount of original wit, To get at Hif-m briclly Truesdell, of Clinton county, leads these. On Wednesday, in the house, while under the fifth order of business, John I'. Irish, of Johnson county, threw the radical side of tho house into confusion !iy introducingarcsolutionas follows: Jtceotvcd, That it is the senso of this house tliat the present prohibitory liquor of Iowa should be repealed, and a judicious license law enacted in lion ihereof. TJtulloy, of Wapeiio, rucovereil-iu tirun to prevent tho ayes aud nays ou the re- solution by moving to Jay on the table. Ou this mot Ion called for a record- ed voie.' I telegraphed the HERALD the full and need not repeat K ht-rt-, VOL. XVI. SUNDAY MORNING, JANUARY 26. 1868. Tlie resolution was tublcd by :i vole of OS to 27. Two members, Hamilton, and Johnson, of Cherokee, (United, and two, Hnrtsock and Fritz, were absent on leave. Caldwcll asked (o be excused from voting, Imt, beinj; compelled to vote, casl it in the negative. Tnicadell, of Clinton, (Uie clerical was fairly aroused, and 10011 oflored the following JtfKOlvcd, That it is the sense- of this house that the sale of iutoxiciitiiiK li- quors as a beverage is a crime, and as such canuot be licensed, but should be us eutirely and unqualifiedly prohibited as any other crime; and if necessary foi the suppression, of intemperance, we ought to enact a more stringent law upon the subject, aud also to provide for its perfect enforcement by creating a state constabulary for tins express pur- pose. Tho house was called, and it promised to pntevery man squarely on tho record on this temperance question. McNtitt, of Muscatine, was too old a radical to to be caught in that trap. .He therefore moved to refer the resolution to the committee on Intemperance, a standing concern'whoso chief duty has heretofore been to tear up ihe petitions of citizens and votejs asking for a re peal of the odious prohibitory liquor law, and in the last hour of every ses- sion t'tilminatein some report on intem- perance. Truesdell, who otlered the resolution, is u prominent member of this committee, and Ordway, of Bluck- liawk.a Good Templar at Waterloo, is its chairman. This was a neat dUpo- tition of tliu matter, [rish moved to lay on the table. Ayes aud nays beins Milled, the vote wm abrnit the same as on the preceding call, on the refer- nice to the committee the vote stood :0 to as on the motion to table Irish's resolution, the absentees having been brought iu and voted aflirmativeiy. This affair created no little excite- ment. "Such radicals as Adams, of M'useatino, .LilUngwoll and Cotton, of Jlintou, Leach, of .Linn, do not hesi- ute to say that if Trtiesdeli is allowed Lo run the party as ho has indicated ho will attempt, it is hopelessly gouc in the uextclection. Trnsdell's law might be forced through the house, but tlie gen- eral opinion is that he dare not try it. Tracy, the "member from Gru ndy" of .woyearsago was the clerical member >f the intemperance committee, and it vill be remembered how he weakened. I'rusdell will repeat Tracy. U-iilroad nutters are looming Senator liichards Inn prepared :i bill against discriminating tarills. .S.-nator iawley has a bill resuming the Dubuquo Sioux City land grant, and other bills of more or less imporlance in different vnxrU of the Ktate arc being ireparod. The lobby is filling up with ho.se representing r.ulroad interests in he southern and central portions of he State. C. C. Hewitt, Dubiique, s here working like a beaver fur the 'old as known iu tho re- gion of the Dubuque and Sioux t is understood that ho came to work against resumption for the benelit of "ohn f. Blair's Company, but. now Hiding Ulair likely to get tlie land rant, is determined to head oil' the >roposed change of route to Oaawu, in- tead of Sioux City, lie is doing gond I'ork, aud deserves success. The boiler of the Register oftiue 'bursted" last night. XV damage nuch account beyond delay of publk-a- ion. More than a hundred bills will be on ilo iu the house, by the close of the ecoud week of the session. Gov. Merrill will send in a special message to-morrow probably, of which 'ou will bo fully advised by telegraph. ANNUAL FESTIVAL OK TIIK ST.

Theliopubilcsui's Washington special says: Thomas W. Conway, formeily assistant commissioner of the freed- men's bureau iu Louisiana, but more recently in tho service of the republi- can union congressional committee, ar- rived hero this evening direct from Xew Orleans. He is the bearer of a petition signed by seventy members of Iho constitutional convention praying congress to take speedy measures for the removal of Gen. Hancock, and rep- resenting that if ho IK allowed to re- main iu Iiouisiaua, the state willful I into the hands of the rebels despite the efforts of the unionists. This petition will ho presented early next we'ek by Senator Suuineriu the senate and Ofen. Butler in Iho house. Mr. Conway will remain some time, and urge upon congress speedy action upon the petition. He says that had Gon. Sheridan, remained in Louisiana that stato would have nearly been re- constructed-by this time. Hancock he says has entered into a league with the rebels to defeat reconstruction rather than allow Louisiana to come in a rad- ical state. The constitutional couven- ,tion will be ready to adjourn in a lew days. Mr. Conway says the work of the convention will be defeated should con- gress fail to put a check ou the rebels by the removal of Hancock. 1'KO.II WA.SUIXftTO.N. OmiKrcflloniil Mutters neiiiocriitlc I'oiiNiiltntlon. CHICAGO, Jan. 2Z. Washington specials say to-day has been comparatively quiet. Tho house was in session to allow tho members to deliver speeches written entirely for homo circulation. The senate held no session to-day, while the house was thronged with vis- itors, mostly western politicians desi- rous to see tho president. There is good authority for saying there will be no reduction of taxation. Senators Wilson aud Fcssenden ex- pect to debate the reconstruction bill on Monday. The feeling among tlie radical seniors is to continue debate on tho bill until a vote cau be taken with- out referring it to the judiciary com- mittee. Leading democratic politicians have been in. counsel to-day ou tho lime and place of holding their natioual conven- tion. Cincinnati seems to be the favor- ite place. Peudletou stock is in ascend- ant. The president applied to Geu. Grant for information called for by congress, which legitimately belongs to the war department and ought to have been submitted to the war departmeut. Gen. Grant furnished ;thc information as it related to the military departments in the southern states. The president persistently refuses id allow anything to bo issued through tin- war department.
