It was ildally postponed to next Friday, when it will bo pressed to a vote. The woman sultrage movement is not goui-ingmncli strength by lis delay. On Saturday it was announced tiiat Susan B. Anthony, tlie great ajiostle of feminine sulfrngo, was to address the Legi8latnrc-.:st noon. The House adjourned at 10:30 to the follotving Wednesday, and the members made a straight break for homo. The Senate, at 11:45 did the same thing, and when tho hour of noon arrived tliers was not twenty membeia of tbe Benate present, aud the ouly auditors were citizens who bod crowded iu to hear. Tlie indignant venerable maiden jiocket-od her speech aud retired. It was really unkind in the General Assembly to do this, and Susan will feel that the fates \re against her, OS she has ever sincp tbe Beeclior biismess broke out been iiovoring about Iowa, and sovoral times attempted to lift up hur voice iu tho State Capitol, but each time iucontioeutly failed. She will now probably shake its dust f'om ofT her sUrta and. depart THE snrBEjtE judokx. W.

This will eroato another vooRiioy OS District Judge, which will probably full to Senator Shane, of Benton Countv. The Fish Ciiltiu-o bill, anpropriatlnt' tlO.OOO, has passed the House, and will pass tlio Senate. It is a little singular that those who wore the most hitter opponents of the measure two years ago, and heaped all manner of ridicule upon it, are now Its most earnest supporters, and what was at first called a scheme of Mr. Dixon, of Wapello, to furnish OUnmwa with suckers, is now odmiltod to be oneot tbe most importgnt matters boforo the Legislature. 0r. fiUaw, the Fisb Commissioner, exhibited to the Logislaturo the other day specimens of California salmon 18 months old which were more than twelve Inches iu length. He says there is no State In the Union or the world so perfectly adapted to fish cult nro and tho propagation of groat varictios of Hsh SB Iowa, 'ate new law speciaUy provides that one tbons,.nd doliorB shall be expended In sup-plyiog rivers with eels, tho most valuable of all fish food. BOBBUIIX OUTlUQK. A young woman was' walking along tho liigli-way on lied Oak Branch, Montgomery County, a few days since, when she was suddenly sei/.nd by four men, gaggea and carried under a bridge where she was inbiimanly outraged, when the villains tied, leaving her in an inaensl-blo condition. Tho fearful and horrible record of this orime in this State tlie past year calls for redress, and the Legislature should and probably will provide a puuhibmeiit for it. A blU is on file placing the crime with murder, and so it should bo, for life, with no hope of "pardon. _PiiTEn, /.,e0(b(a({ise JBeeorif.

Was this ."doing the best that conld be done ?"" .The report says that the ravine on one side of tho pen was a '* morass of human excrement and mud." Does Mr. Da'vis call it kind, deoenji, .even human to compel helpless prisoners to occnny snch a place ? On (he 6th day of August, 1864, Ool. Chandler, im officer of tho Confederate army, made a report to.tho Bebel War Department regarding the conJi Won of Andersonville Prison. He had made one six months before, but no attention had been paid to it. In his last report ho said: >Iy duty requires me rospeotfiilly to rocom-mend � ohaimo in the oflioer iu tho oonimaiid of the post, Brig. Qen, 3. a.

Assistant Secretary, .7. A. OampbeU, who then wrote below Gen. Cooper's indorsement tho following : These reimrts sliow a condition of tliiugu at Audcrsoiiville wbicii calls very loudly for the mterposition of tho dopartmonl, in order that a ohaiigo may bo made, J. A. Caju'Ueu., Asaletant ieoretary of War, Thus w^s tUo horrible condition of things at AndorsonviUe brought home to tho Hoorotary of War, ono of tho confl-donliol odvisciB of tho President, who was doily in consultation with him. If all was being done for the prisoners tlmt oonld bo done, how came sach reports to be made ? But what was the resitlt ? A few days after this report was in. Winder, the beast, tho ornel, heartless coward-the man ol whom tho Richmond Examiner said, when ho -was ordered from that city to Andersonville, "Thank God that Bichmond is at last rid of old Winder; God have mercy upon those to whom he has been sent;" this mon-rwas promoted by Mr. Davis, and made Com-mifisary-General of all the ptisonsaud prisoners in the Confederacy, We come now to a question which wo challenge Mr. Davis to answer. Did ho know of, or bad his attention been called to, Ool. Chandler's report when he promoted Gen, Winder. . Da'e he deny having made this latter appointment aa a reward to Winder for his faithful services at .\ndersonville ? One other point of Mr. Davis' letter we now sllado to briefly. Ho says it appears from our reports that the Confederates took 60,000 more prisoners than we did, and yet 6,000 more of thorn died than of tbe Union prisoners. This is utterly absurd, and has been token undoubtedly from Hill's speech instead of the records. The latter show, OS we stated the other day, that the Union forces captm-ed 476,165 prisoners, while the rebels took only 188,145. Mr. Davis further says, with that charming effrontery that we have so often admired iu the Southern knight, that Congress had no power to take upon itself the pardoning power, and make cx pout facto penalties for crimes against tiie state, fle would mnch prefer, ho says, to see all these laws relating to the power of Congress to remove political disabilities ropealod (he seems to ignore the fact that the power is awarded by the OonBtitntioii^,' and. the courts leftto affii the jpenolties according to pre-existing legislation. Wlien we reflect that if Mr. Davis' suggestions should bo carried oit, and the courts should affix the penalties accordiog to preerisUng legisla-tioo, he would bo dangling from the end of n rope as soon as they could hear his case, the aaaiuance of the man mounts into sublimity. For this exhibition of bad taste, hnwover, wo cure very little. The irnpnrtnucH of his letter arises from his dcniiUbf what has come to be regarded as a historical fact. He cannot expect to escape with a simple denial alone. He must state his reasons, and, now that he has opened his mouth, explain his own connection with tho great crime at Andprsonvjlle. We wait-pa-tiently for him to close,-Inler-Occan. And yet In heaven Is no night, Xn heaven 18 no inordaui row ! .

But whilo we hear from the Eastern papers nil about mining properties bought by Englishmen that have proved to be unfortunate not a word is said obout tho other class. We would suppose that even Eastern people would stop to think that there was another side to the story, or Eogliehmen would not continue to invest hero. We know ono mine in this State which, sinco its purchase, has iu-oreosed in value moro than the Emma has depreciated, and yet, while to-da^ its stock is held at many millions,.it does not look so well as the Emma dip : when it was sold.
