Monday Morning, January 28, 1867. A 4 ousiiiuiional (Sovereign. While the question of deposing the Chief Magistrate of this country by constitutional methods is agitating the American people and has been actually moved in Congress, we are invited to witness in Spain the spectacle of a constitutional sovereign first suspending and then dissolving the Congress, and finally ar resting and sending into exile the recalcitrant deputies. The extraordinary powers which have been exercised by the Spanish Ministry of late were conferred by the Cortes, during the disturbances of last summer, by the acts of June 30 and July 8. It is an instructive fact that these powers are now used to dis solve the very body which granted them, just as President Johnson used the military pow ers with which the executive office had been clothed during the rebellion in this country, to inaugurate a policy directly opposed to the wishes of the American people and disputed the authority of their representatives in Con The Spanish Congress expected to hold the Ministry responsible for its acts. When the day for its meeting arrived, however, the Congress found itself suspended until the 31st December. The Opposition members never theless persisted in assembling daily at the Palace of Congress, to read the papers, lunch, and discuBs the state of the country in gen eral committee. Meanwhile the country was in a ferment. The life of the Queen has not been blameless, and her past errors and pres ent superstitious devotion were spread abroad on anonymous broadsides—every day a new crop. It was in vain that luckless bill-stickers were sent to prison, and political barbers, in whose shops seditious pamphlets were found, were arrested. The storm of censure con tinued, in spite of the utmost activity of the police. Under these propitious circumstances, the Liberal deputies saw fit to address a re monstrance to her Majesty, signed by 121 names, more or less; the number is variously stated. Madrid, it must be remembered, was in a state of siege at the time, and a public meet ing of deputies or others is, in the eyes of mil itary law, a grave matter. The President of the Congress, Don Antonio Rios y Rosas, was appointed to present the document. Mar shal Serrano, who though a Liberal was supposed to retain some influence with the Queen, was requested to procure for Senor Rios y Rosas a private audience, and consented. But to Marshal Serrano, though twenty-three years ago she had known him by the tender title of “the handsome Minister,” Queen Isabella would have nothing to say. Rios y Rosas thereupon called upon Marshal Narvaez, Duke of Valentia and President of the Council of Ministers. The Duke wa3 confined to his bed by the gout, and less amiable than usual. Af ter an angry altercation Rios y Rosas left a formal demand for a royal audience, signed by himself, Pedro Salaverna, formerly Finance Minister, Mauricio Lopez Roberts, who be longs to the Irish clique headed by Marshal O'Donnell, and one or two others. Sr. Pezzuela, a truculent military person age, Captain-General of Madrid, on due in formation of this insolence of the deputies, proceeded to the Palace of Congress; gave the keeper of the archives a thrashing with his own hands fbr not taking offhi3 bat, and then sent him to prison for complaining; in fine, or dered the Palace to be closed to all except the minor functionaries. Matters having gone so far, Narvaez thought best to make a clean job of it, and ordered the arrest of nineteen dep uties. Rios y Rosas was found in bed. His domestics were ordered not to open the doors, which were accordingly broken in. The President of the Cortes complained of being unwell, but recovered when a litter wus brought from the nearest hospital to remove him. Marshal Serrano’s house was surround ed by two companies of infantry, and Pezzue la in person, with a corporal and four privates, marched into the old soldier’s bed-room and ordered him to surrender. The Marshal merely laughed at Pezzuela’s military dispo sitions, and accompanied him. He was sent to the Balearic Isles, in company with Sala verria. Roberts was dispatched to some point on the African coast. R1os y Rosas was sent to Porto Rico. Seven deputies were ex iled and twelve were assigned a forced domi cile. On the 30th December her Christian Majesty issued a decree dissolving the Con gress, ordering a new election on the 10th March, and fixing upon March 30 lor the new Congress to meet. The new Congress will probably consist of clergy nominees, needy office clerks and hang ers-on at the court—bread and butter men, who will be sufficiently subservient. There are Liberal leaders enough in Spain to furnish at least six revolutions. Unfortunately there is no great middle class to constitute a solid Liberal party. Yet even Spaniards cannot forever endure such ty ranny as this. The Wool Grower*’ Convention. We aie sorry to see that the Wool Growers’ Convention, held at Augusta on the 24tli inst., made no distinction bteween the long wools lor which we are absolutely dependent upon foreign glowers and the common wools with which our farmers can tully supply the mar ket. It would seem to be in accordance with sound policy to admit the former at a mod erate tariff and exclude the latter. The fol lowing resolutions were adopted: Resolved, That sheep industry ought to be encouraged among us, not only as a direct means ot support, but as also indirectly tend iug to maiutain and increase the productive ness of our soils. Resolved, As the deep conviction of all pres ent, that sheep husbandry cannot be safely en tered upon or advised as the tariff upon wool now is. . Resolved, As our own convictions, and we believo also that of all the most intelligent sheep growers in the State, that a just protec tion to the wool growing interest of New Eng land requires that there should be laid upon imported wools an import duty not less than that proposed by the Cleveland Convention. Resolved, That the the interests of the wool grower and of the manufacturer of woolen goods ought uot to conflict with each other, and that tho import duty on woolen goods should be sufficient to secure to our manufac turers the home market lor the same. Resolved, That the delegation in Congress from this State be requested to take all fair means to procure the enactment of a law in accordance with tho spirit of the foregoing resolutions. Resolved, That the Secretaries bo directed to forward to each ot our Senators aud Repre sentatives in Congress a copy of these reso lutions. Resolved, That we advise the wool growers and woolen manufacturers to hold meetings at central points in different parts of the State for tho discussion of matters pertaining to the protection ot Iheir several interests, and for the instruction of the people relating to such matters. Employing Physicians* It is said that the Emperor of China em ploys physicians only to keep him in health.— To them he commits his mode of living, and as long as his health is preserved he pays them well for their services; but if he is taken sick, woe betide his physicians I Then they must attend lor nothing, and perhaps receive pun ishment besides. The plan of his Celestial Majesty is not devoid of reason and sound policy. The most seasonable and important good a physician can do us, is to keep us m health.His prescriptions to this end should be as anxiously followed, as any he may order at a sick bed. It is a judicious arrangement for every fam ily to select its physician, and commit to him the care of the health of its members. He should call frequently to ascertain the sanila' ry condition of the family, and if he ascer tains any cause of danger from disease, give the inmates a timeiy professional warning. As soon as his curative skill is needed in any case, let him be applied to in season, which in very many cases would probably prevent a fit of sickness. A large share of the diseases with which poor human nature is afflicted, might have been prevented by an early call upon a judicious physician. Who had not rather pay the doctor for preventing, lather than curing “the thousand nameless ills which human flesh is heir to ?” “An ounce of prevention Is worth a pound of cure." The Supreme C'uurt. The following article, from the pen of Wen dell Phillips, appears in «le Ami-.Slaverv Klanda. d. It tally justilies Uie apprehensions we have already expressed (br ihc salety of the Supreme Couit, if it be allowed to l,eeoine a mere political machine. The consideration which such a court should have is seriously imperilled by the attempt of a mere m.-poi ity | of its members to usurp powers which belong to the people. What Wendell Phillips says, many men are thinking. If the thought should become act, it wdl he because the court.is not restrained in time to its proper functions. Air, Phillips says,— The lafe decisions ol the Supreme Court show us that we must henceforth count two ol tho great co-equal powers ot the govern ment against as. Henceforth Congress lights alone for the nation against the Supreme Court and the President leagued in the ser vice ot rebeldom. Of course, therefore, the contest grows keener and more equal, and t tie South takes courage. The North is not dis couraged uecause she knows her omnipotence, knows that she can crush all the meiV forms of government in order to secure Tfo great purpose-justice, and the preservation ol national existence. This the people mean to do, and will do unless baulked by timid sell- ' ish, incompetent, and corrupt leaders.’ The action of the supreme Court—its disloyalty_ will not surprise abolitionists; we have tested that bench for thirty years. Ever since ■ Taney—the mere creature ot a seil-wiiled Prestdert—took his seat there, it hasepased to be an independent branch of the government and become the convenient and supple tool of the Executive. Abolitiouists well know that, during the whole course ot its existence, it has’ never squared its decisions on the slave ques tion either with justice, the spirit ot the Con stitution, or even its letter when that favored liberty. While its course on many great is sues has been open to grave objection, its rec ord on the negro question is inlamous. We use the word deliberately. The use of it in this connection twenty-live years ago, w m us the unmitigated abuse oi the whole American press. We have maturely considered their protest, and remaining of the same opinion still, delibciately re|ieat the statement. With out limiting the remark to the slave question, I we affirm that, on several important subjects, uo instinct of freedom lias ever led that court to deviate by accident or for a moment into any decision becoming the American people, their history, Constitution or declaration of Independence. An effort would have been made early in the war to remodel the court but for a very general distrust of Mr. Lincoln’s policy in filling vacancies there. Thaddeus | Stevens, when appealed to in lst!2 to neutral- ! ize the poison ol that bench by adding two or ' three trustworthy judges, replied:’ “Add ! judges for Abraham to nominate! I had ratlr ei risk the court as it is.” Events have eon- I tinned his sagacity; two of Lincoln's nomi nees have joined the cue uy. If present appearances may be trusted, that court, like the President, is henceforth to stand an insurmountable obstacle, as at pres ent constituted, to auy efficient and sate re construction. Thanks to the Died Scott and other decisions, the bench lung ago lost tiic sympathy aud respect of the masses. General Jackson could not lift Taney to the bench; lie could drag the bench down to Taney. There are men whom it is impossible to make res pectable, since they have no element to win respect. There is no human institution so : venerable that the touch of vile men will not defile and degrade it. Ten years ago, the ti nat cause oi such a creature as Taney whs in explicable. To-day, the mystery is solved. No element less repulsive mid discreditable would have sufficed to utterly bankrupt such a pow er as that Court, which, m its piime vigor serving tyranny with decorum—might have overawed and misled the people to this crisis. It will need hut little effort to show the peo ple the true course to be taken in this emer gency. The nation must be saved, no matter what or how venerable the toe wl.o»e exist- I ence goes down before that necessity. The ideal of such a court, aloof from all political ambition, tar above all party spirit, uiiimpaa- . stoned asjustice, was a grand conception.— 1 Such a court would »ave ooen an invaluable element inour system. Until within some tweuty years, the masses have regarded it as a bench, basing its decisions on detiuite, un varying and easily understood principles. Of late it is seen to be wbat it is, a mere appen dage to party. Appointed for life, Us judges must oi course, olten find themselves appurte nant, by their prejudices and associations, to a detested party. Such is their present posi tion; and, like all fragments and elements ol the old, disloyal Democratic party, its late is certain. The moment there arises in the Re publican ranks a man bold enough to strike, the people will applaud the blow. There will be tue same outcry and the same resistance, ! trom the same quarters, as there was when ' anti-slavery first demanded that the nation should mould its form or its spirit. The out cry aud resistance will be just as vain in this case as In that The instincts of the masses, the consciences of just men. the spirit of the age, and God's law, all demand that the in spiration and corner-stone of this government shall be justice. The Constitution with its time-honored compromises held up by the strongest of parties, was dust iu the balance against such a current. This court will prove the same. The dry rot of its political subserv iency has made it an empty form. The wind of the blow that demolished slavery were enough to scatter this obstacle frem our path. A C*u|m>l*ul Lark. One of the effects ot prolonged wakefulness upon tbe brain is well known to be an excite ment akin to that produced by the use of stimulants. Tbe recent night session of the national House of Representatives illustrates this physiological principle as completely as if it had been an experiment gotten up for that sole purpose, regardless of expense. The Tri bune photographs and comments upon some of the most striking scenes, as follows: “Oh! Dixey,” exclaimed an enthusiastic la dy in our hearing, while watching that cele brated negro-in iustrel go through his perform ance with the bones,“Dixey Is my ideal!” To what pitch her admiration would have been raised wc can only inter, bad she witnessed the scenes in the House ot Representatives on Tuesday. Without the aid of burnt cork our Congressmen succeeded in putting to shame tbe buffooneries ot the hitherto unrivaled Cool White, or the amusing liflly Rirch. At 4 1-2 o'clock Tuesday afternoon."on motion ot the Democratic members, tbe House resolved itself into a company of very low comedians, and treated tbe couutry to a burlesque of leg islation, which continued most of tbe night. It would have been very funny indeed, if it had not been very disgraceful. The farce began in the determination of the minority to postpone the passage of Mr. Bout well’s Test-Oath bill, by offering lillibustering motions, and ordering the Yeas and Nays. The unpleasant prospect of an all-night ses sion caused many members to desert their seats, and the beigcaut-at-Arms was directed to arrest the delinquents. These unfortunate men were brought from the hotels and restau rants in which they had taken rciuge, and forced to join or witness the melancholy per lonnance. In a little while, the floor ot the house would have been converted to a dining nail and smoking room, but for t He decision ol Mr. Coltax that dinners and cigars were out ol order. Deprived of these amusements, the members sought others, even less in keeping with their dignity, and it is hard to say wheth er Republicans or Democrats did tbe more to make Congress disreputable. Mr. Rogers, tile Democratic leader, enquired wuethur liam sandwiches could not be supplied; but then Mr. like, Republican from Maine, suggesteu 1 that the tines imposed should go for drinks, j Mr. Eldridge, Democrat, requested Mr. Grin nell to entertain the company with the song j of “John Brown,’’ and Mr. Grinncll, In return, ! wanted Mr. Eldridge to sing ivmiiuu we nuuBis >etaiive, Ami do we yet rebel; And i» It not amazing grace, That we aro not »n hell!” Mr. Buckland wanted to be excused for run ning away, on the ground tha: he had nut been to dinner, and Mr. Schenck was in favor ot remitting the tine, thinking that to dine in the restaurant ot the House was penalty enough. This was a joke which we assure Mr. bchcnck no comic paper would publish, and the reporter should he censured tor tele graphing it. We object to paying for impro prieties which are cot even tunny. If want of dignity is wit, why did not the members play Leap Frog all night, for then they would have been still wittier ! We are soriy that Mr. Col fax, who enforced some of the rules sternly did rot assert tire diguitv of the Speakership! and read the House a severe lesson, instead ot joining in its silly lun. But he seems to have made little ellbrt to spare the country this S^Anfid such scenes the jovial members pass ed the ui-'bt, varying the entertainment l.y motions to adjuunill|l Thursday, to amend l.y substituting Friday, to amend the amendment by inakiuu it Friday at 12 o’clock, to amend the amendment to the amendment by making It 5 minutes utter 12, and so ou till this shal low fountain of bad wit was exhausted, t'll the wide-mouthed spectators in the gallery were tired of laughing at the buffoons, and the buffoons themselves were too sit epy to laugh at each other. Then the House adjourned to meet in a few hours, pass Mr. Boutwed’s hill and the appropriation, and then, still sleepy, adjourned again, to go bed and give themselves the repose they so badly needed. The Ke publican majority showed itself foolishly weak in yielding to this Democratic demand lor de bate on a question upon which the pr. vious question had been called. It should have granted it at the first or not at all. A major ity, being able to work in sections, must dual ly If it has pluck, tire out a minority, and the Republicans should have stood out lor a week, If necessary. For the sake of discipline, and j to prevent future fillibustering, it would have been politic and right to have done so. j It is rather mean that Congress should at I tempt to deprive our negro muistreis of tlicir occupation. Why should Mr. Koce-s try to take the bread and butter from the comic i Birch, or Mr. Pike seek to wrest the banjo ! from tne reluctant Davy Warn boldCongress "Hers the public, lor nothing, a walk around lor which the regular minstrels must charge a high price, with the additional al traction of I indecency, which the latter would scorn.

J’lierelore, if Congress intends to go i.ito the negro minstrelsy business, let it do so with energy, and immediately make an appropriation to puicbase burnt cork, bones, banjos, and lamborines. The regular min strels may then undertake the settlement of the great questions ot finance, the tariff', im peaeliment, and the reconstruction of the South. VmL Fanners whose wood-lots supply them with fuel are generally provident enough to liaul to their door-yards in winter a sufficiency to last them the ensuing year. This is good econo my. But people in villages—mechanics and others who have to purchase their luel need this economy quite as much as farmers. It Is bad policy to purchase wood only tor immedi ate use, and that by the single load. Three (ouithsofthc time purchases made in this manner arc made at the highest prices, and the quality is inferior to what it should be and might be, It every householder would adopt the right system. This system is to lay in at least a year’s supply of sound merchantable green wood in winter when the sledding is good and the prices arc lowest. This should he sawed and split before spring, and left out ol doors long enough to get seared by the sun and winds of March and April. It Is then suitable to be housed. I.et it be packed away uuder cover where no wet will reach it, but where the air can circulate. Next tail or win ter, when the cold weather commences, you will have a good article,—much better tbau the dozy stull', called “seasoned,'’ that has been wet and dried by turns all summer in the woods or roadside. It will kindle quick and last long. Always keep a year’s supply in ad vance. Get iuto this system and depart not Irom it. This is the best economy—depend upon it. Tbaxi.
