The State Register of the 19th Con- tains a history of the vote on the loan. We reproduce it in a slightly condensed form.

Wishing to reciprocate this apparent political magnanim- the Bepublican members of the General Assembly at the late Extra Session elected Democrats to about half the offices in either and for the accomplishment of the work of the Session were willing to throw aside political flow did the minority meet this exhibition of Of course the important measure of the Ses- sion was an act authorizing the issue of State Bonds to raise a War Fund for the HQW did the Democrats fulfill their promises to furnish the Governor all the material aid necessary for a successful prosecution of the The following transcript from the Journal of the House will show.

A. as Chairman Ism. of the State as published in the Htrmld newspaper of the 8th of which he is editor. We are of the opinion thai the time desig- nated for the assembling of the 4 is premature and inopportune. Congress will meet on the 4th of but nothing im- portant will probably have transpired by the tenth inst. The future policy of the country will not be and U would be denying ns a great advantage to hold oar Convention so near the meeting of Congress that we could know nothing bat conjecture as to the mo- mentous issues that will be brought before that body. between the time desig- nated and the day of many events might and facts be brought to properly aflecting tbe action of the Convention. There is no in any that the Convention should be hrfd at so early a day. The time between tbe date of thecall and the meeting of the is too short The call could notmck the distant parts of the State in season to enable the Township and County Conventions to assemble and appoint their delegates. The consequences would be inasmuch as voting by wosy is that the Counties would not be felly and equally represented in the Slate Convention.

The Boston Journal publishes the following sharp criticism on the Great Bethel affair from the pen of in Of the sufficient to say that it was begun without any knowledge of the enemy's and so without any plan it was car- ried on without any each man fighting on his own attd it was ended fittingly by a tout and a during had the enemy been in condition they might have killed our men like sheep. And the retreat was ordered when the Massachusetts men had already partially gained the enemy's and wheti a' little more energy and perseverance would have given ns the victory. The enemy's position was masked in front by bashes mhd and iras flanked by woods and thus putcling a man who had a few rules to fight and could go no farther. Yet the retreat was the most unspeakably dis- graceful of all. A fresh regiment arrived Just before the retreat was ordered. Another was and yet in such a horiy burly did the men retreat that eight wounded one sick and two dead men left behind to the tender mercies of the to say of the stragglers. Nothingbut the cowaidiee of a band of tome eighty Vir- ginia honemen who porsoed saved a little squad of and ail these from being cut off. Nothing can express the sense of shame which every soldter here foeis. Item's name is a synonym for imbecility and the least the soldiers hen will be satisfied with is that be be recalled or compelled resign. Now I have told a dark and shameful but it is true every word of it. In bright re- lief to this is the conduct of many private. So far as there was any battle every man fought pretty much on his own and Massachusetts men and the Zouaves wen in the fon front Three of the four or five sachnsctts men who wen .killed fell on the very edge of the trench behind which tbe emy's riflemen wen standing.
