A dispatch announcing the governor s action was read at the Sand lots during the meeting and was greeted with prolonged cheers for the Bill and for the governor. The workingmen will again Parade to Morrow. Atoy Mem Bers of the legislature voted for the Bill merely for the purpose of bringing about some settlement of the matter As it will doubtless come before the courts at an Early Day. Gex. Porter tie dts at on Hitt to Jie Utu Oil Jon present to stain of the scatter Washington special notice was Given in the Senate to Day that the Fitz John Porter Case will be called up for discussion next monday. In regard to this matter three separate reports have been made and though they ostensibly represent the views and sentiments of All nine Mem Bers of the Senate military committee it is ascertained they Only thoroughly represent the views and opinions of the individual who made senators Landolph Logan and i5nrnside. As to the Iatter s report made yesterday there is considerable criticism. Lie has Tho reputation of being n very conservative Man but it has been left to him to insinuate that Gen. Por Ter waited until the democratic party got a Clear majority in Congress before making an Effort for vindication. Gen. Burnside claims that a second court martial would give n reliable opinion that would command Tho respect of military men All Over the world and give Gen. Porter the Justice which is due to him. Any vindication Short of that would do him and his descendants no Good. Consider for instance the action of Congress upon this Bill if it should be against him. In other words if this Bill should fail to pass then to will have had no vindication in fact it will add to his condemnation. If it should pass in a modified form then it could be said that he did not deserve Tho full measure of his sentence but yet deserved condemnation of some kind. If it should pass As it has been reported by the majority of this committee ann1 fail to pass by a substantially unanimous vote it will be said that for years Gen. Porter Lias been trying to gel action upon this Case and never until this particular period and under the present Peculiar circumstances has he been Able to get it and now he gets a Bill passed with out favourable recommendation of the presi Dent by a simple majority of Congress and in violation of it Well established Prin Ciple of government that sentences of courts martial should not be annulled by it is said that Porter does not want a second trial and As suggested by a member of Congress to Day if a second trial could be legally Given it might result in Porter s being shot said this member even if a second court martial should be allowed Porter could snap his fingers at its orders for in Point of fact it would have no authority Over or Power to compel Porter to stand trial. He is out Side of the jurisdiction of any military trib Unal and would not subject himself to another As proposed by Burd Sido be cause he must know that there would be but the slightest Chance of getting a vindication of the fulsome character that be seems to want or a democratic senator is prepared to offer at a proper time As a substitute for the Bills now Pend ing a proposition to reinstate Porter in the rank of colonel of the regular army to which rank he would have been entitled then place him on the retired list with the pay of a retired colonel from and after the passage of this act thus avoiding the objectionable feature of Tuo other Bills which propose to allow Porter a Largo sum As Back pay and to reinstate him in a higher rank than he was entitled to.

Times says the objection of the Irish members that a charge upon the Church fund would really be in Aid of poor rates and would thus violate the express provisions of the act of 18g9, is in consistent with the claim made on the Imperial exchequer. The measures of govern ment Are intended Only to take effect when the poor Law system proves wholly inadequate whether it is at the Cost of the Church fund or the state. Berlin feb.

Committee to distribute its Irish Relief fund col. King Harmon 51. P., ill. Show m. P., prof. Baldwin Cardinal Mccloskey and or. Parnell. The Cardinal at first declined to serve but has since reconsidered his declination and now consents to Render the requested service. Or. Parnell also declined when his services were first asked but the h rat i Hopes he will reconsider his decisions and repeats its request that he will act As one of the committee notwithstanding his strange course toward the paper. Tha editorial upon the subject in this morn ing s Herald concludes As follows we offer or. Parnell such a committee As he thinks desirable naming himself As a Mem Ber of it. If he again declines the verdict of the american Public it will be that or. Parnell s object is not the Relief of his starving countrymen but selfish agitation for his own political and personal aggrandizement and that he is not Only an obstructionist in his own country but an obstructionist to Charity Here. If he deliberately puts him self in this position the american people will think it about time that he and his farce were ended. We suppose All sensible irishmen will endorse this conclusion Gen.

Beckins retired to bed with her children leaving a lamp born aug near by for her husband who was away from borne. She soon fell asleep and was suddenly awakened to find her clothing and the bed on which she Lay on fire.

Neighbors saw Tho Light of Tho fire and hastening to the scene soon succeeded in extinguishing it. Bat they were too late to save the poor Mother whom they found terribly burned from head to foot her hands so badly crisped that the Fiji Gers were curled inward to the Palms.
