Navigation is open on the canal. The packets Are making their regular trips daily. The late session of Congress. The Congress whose official life expired with the Advent of the noon of the fourth of March last did waste a great Deal of their time in doing nothing that is not to be denied. But still they did something in the last hours of the session which if it did not indicate that they were careful of the Public Money showed that they were mindful that there was to be a change in the men at the head of the a government and that they were to be of the political party to which a majority of the Congress belongs. And How did they do this by appropriating Money of course to be distributed among the Nelt a this was done by attaching a Section to to one of the appropriation Bills increasing the salaries of various offices in this Wise. Late Sal. Increased Sal.

The office of the chief magistrate was filled. General Pierce was elected and was about to be inaugurated. So his place was not open to any of the members of Congress Aud it would have been an Idle waste of Money to increase his salary. And so with the judges of the supreme court. There was one vacancy to be sure Here but they were few if any of the members of Congress who hoped to get that if they deserved ii so the salary was not increased. Not so however with the foreign missions and Cabinet appointments. All the party in Congress were sure they were qualified for any of these offices and As they were All to be filled by president Pierce and open to their aspirations so they All May be said to have hoped to be rewarded with them if not immediately yet in the course of the new democratic presidents term. They looked Forward to the future and therefore made provision for it by increasing the salaries of the officers that they might be selected to this then did the late democratic Congress and this about All they did do.
