We have hoped that the bill t'oi the govern ment of the Southern States would not be come a law. True, It had passed both tlio Senate and the House by a strict party vote but the unanimity was only apparent. The debates in both houses, sufficiently, though not fully, revealed the discontent with which the measure was regarded on all sides. It commanded the full Republican rote because there was felt to be a necessity of doing some thing, and it was evident that nothing better could be secured at this session. Earlier in (he session it would have failed. The debate In tbe Senate after the debate came back from the House, covers nearly all the objections to which the bill is liable. Senator Wade objected to it as a Katty measure. “We need not, ” he said, “consider ourselves driven by time to patch up a hasty measure here that will be unsatisfactory to ourselves and the country. If we cannot do it now, let ns begin again de hobo at the next session, and take all summer for it if neces sary.” Senator Fessenden objected to so much of it as pledges Congress in advance to the admission of Southern representatives, as uncalled for and unstate.vnaulike. “I would very much have preferred,” he said, “ the military bill, as it was called, pure and simple. I belong to that class of men who think that in a difficult crisis, where there Is confusion and it is troublesome to ascertain what it is best to do, true states man ship requires that you should do uo more thau is absolutely demanded by tbe exigency of the case.” Senator Sumner objected to the blii, because “there is no provision for the initiation of tho new governments; there is no helping hand extended to the loy al people who may seek to lay anew the foun dations of civil order.” Mr. Buckalaw said, “In my mind, neither the original bill nor the amended bill, as passed by the Senate, holds any favorite place;” but we have already giv en the main objections urged and forbear to multiply mere expressions of dissatisfaction. So much tor the Senate. The Democratic press at the North has been quick to spy the error of Congress. The World invites the Southern States to accept these terms in sea son fior the next Presidential election. Ad mitting that the “Conservative” cause is not strong enough to throw away sixty or seventy electoral votes, it adds, “if those votes are worth saving, they must be saved by Southern action this year.” The Chicago 'rimes says the terms are “harsh but not humiliating.” The Buffalo Courier declares that “there is positively no alterna tive except to accept the political situation and make the best of it.” From tbe South we hear that Virginia is preparing to take this prudent counsel; that Gov. Orr is vigorously struggling to form in South Carolina a party tor reconstruction on the best terms that can be obtained; that throughout the Bebel States, as well as in the White House, there is a gen eral breaking up of the sullen stagnation which has hitherto prevailed. We suspect this ready acquiescence. We can not forget that Senator Johnson of Maryland voted for the bill avowedly because it was the best that could be obtained for the South.— After the threats of civil war which Democrat ic conventions and newspapers have so lately utteaed, this sudden submission is suspicious. It was the duty of Congress to provide for the security of the loyal people of the South. It is the duty of Congress to direct, not merely to allow, the reorganization of civil govern ments at the South. It was the duty of Con gress to fix the conditions upon which such reorganization should proceed, and those con ditions should all have been included in the renewed national compact. We have no right to impose upou the Southern States unequal restrictions. If universal suffrage is good for them, it is good for ns. It is time that this question of suffrage were taken from the Leg islatures and made natioial. It is time that the citizens of one State should indeed he en titled to all the privileges of citizens in the several S'ates. The constitutional amendment proposed by the Thirty-ninth Congress has been rejected by the South. It should have been left to the Fortieth Congress to propose another, more complete, more satisfactory.— This great subject ought not to have been set tled by a compromise patched up during the last fortnight of the session. The bill was a compromise—a compromise reached by parli amentary tactics in the House, airanged by a caucus in the Senate, and iinally compromised again, a compromise of compromises, between the two Houses. If the Southern States should lie restored under this bill, it will be simply because they hope to carry the next Presidential election in conjunction with the Democrats of the North. If they cau carry that election under a national cdhstitution properly amended, so be it The reorganization of those States on a proper basis is of more consequence than the success of any party. But if CoDgress has opened the door to them, without first se curing the fruits of a long and bloody war, if the basis of their reorganization is fully satis factory to few if any of the statesmen who conducted the nation through that perilous period, if the control of the government should pass iuto the hands of rebels and friends of rebels before the great questions are fairly and fully settled, it would be a misfortune which could not be sufficiently deplored. The Ritualistic War. The protest of a great number of Episcopal bishops against the effort to introduce certain ritualistic forms into the worship of that church is published in the Christian Witness. It is issued by Bishop Coxe, secretary of the Commission appointed for the purpose, and prefaced by a letter from Bishop Eastburn, earnestly commending it to the consideration of the church. The substance of this protest and the nature of the arguments used by tbe Commission, may be gathered from the follow ing extract: We bold In the language of the XXXIVth Article of Religion, that ‘‘every particular or National Church hath authority to ordain, change and abolish Ceremonies or Rites of the church ordained only by man’s authority, so that ail things be done to edifying”; and also, iu the language of the same article, that Traditions and Ceremonies be in all places ou», or utterly like ;for at all times they have lieeu di vers, and may be changed according to divers ity ot countries, times, and men’s mauners, so that nothing be ordained against God s Word”: and also that this Church was duly organized as a ‘‘particular and N ational Church” in com munion with the Universal or Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church of Christ, and that this organization, which took place immediately after the American Revolution, was settled under the careful direction and advice, and with the cordial co operation of Godly, well learned, and justly-venerated divines, who were well acquainted with the history of the Church of England before and since her bless ed Reformation, and who thoroughly under stood what was and is still required by the peculiarities of this country and its people. We hold, therefore, that the ceremonies, rites and worship then established, ordained, and approved by common authority, as set forth iu the Jkvik of Common Prayer of this Church, are the Law of this Church, which every bishop, presbyter and deacon of the samo has bound himself by subscription to the Pioinise of Conformity in Article VII. ol the Constitution, to obey, observe and follow; and tbat no strange or foreign usages should be Introduced or sanctioned by the private member or members of this Church, clerical or lay. . . . We further hold, that while this church is “far from intending todepart iromthe Cuuic of England ill any point o t .e doc trine, discipline or worship, or ftirthe^than to cal circnmstances ntqmre ^ Ur 4aS Chu."h;’’ and th.t no 5™ i/ook o * the Chinch of England, iu «,e^ whatever sovereign set forth, and no laws of the Church of England have any force of law in this Church such as can be iustlv cited in defence ot any departure fiom the express law of this Church, its Liturgy, its discipline, rites and usages. And we, therefore, consider that in this particular National Church, any attempt to introduce into the public worship of Almigh ty God usages that have never been known, such as the use of incense, andthe burning oi lights in the order for the Holy Communion; reverences to the Iloly Table or to the ele ments thereon such as indicate ™ if if » tbe Sacrifice of our Divine ,that “once ode red,'’ was ao7a sufficient sacrifice, oblation and .«w,'' t»and of the whoteworid;” the^o^T^&i habits hitherto unknown, or material altera tious of those which have been in use sin<v the establishment of our Episcopate; is an in novation which violates the discipline of the Church, “offendetli against its common order and hurteth the authority of tbe Magistrate and woundeth the consciences of tbe weak brethren.” Furthermore, that we be not misunder stood, let it be noted that we include in these censures all the departures from the laws, ru brics, and settled order of the Church, as well by defect as by excess of observance, design ing to maintain in its integrity tbe sound Scriptural and Primitive, aud therefore the Catholic and Apostolic spirit of tbe Uook ef Common Prayer. The protest bears tbe signatures of twenty eight bishops and assistant bishops **•'■*1 HiMMhir. It was a happy coucoption, contemporary with the new system of government adopted for the American Republic, which Introduced the decimal scheme as our national standard ol value. No nation in the world has so ra tional and convenient a pecuniary nomencla ture as that which expresses the measure by decimal reckoning, ascending from mills (10) to a cent; from cents CIO) to a dime; from dimes (10) to a dollar; from dollars (10) to an eagle. Could this plain system become uni versal, It would greatly simplify and promote the facilities of exchange and commerce among the nations. Moses B. Bliss, Esq., of Pittston, in tills State, a scientific gentlemen, who has lor years made metrology a favorite study, has perfected a decimal system, which shall ap ply to all weights and measures as well as to "currency. The attention of the Maine Legis lature was called to this system in 1800. Af ter a careful examination of its merits by a scientific committee of both Houses, a joint resolution in its favor was passed, in which the desire was expressed, tor its adoption by Congress. Accordingly it has been before that body, and is now under its consideration. Like too many other practical things, howev er, it is made to “bide its (time,” till other more exciting matters shall be disposed of— With a view to quicken Its action, the Legis lature, which has recently closed its session at Augusta, passed another resolve, renewedly commending the subject to tbe attentiou of Congress. We hope it may now receive the national consideration to which it is entitled. The wheels of any great reform move slow ly. But the adoption of an entire decimal system, as applicable to weights and measures, would occasion no more disturbance in the mode of reckoning now than did the simstitu tion of mills, dimes, cents, dollars and eagles, for the English farthings, pence, shillings and joninds sterling in 1789. At any rate, wheth er other nations adopt our decimal scheme or not—and in time, we think, its convenience will commend it to universal favor—we need an intelligible home system of reckoniug all kinds of measures, whether of solidity, surface, length or capacity, which shall bring them all to a uniform ratio. Let everything go by tens. Mr. Bliss brings all measures to uniformity, by reducing them to six numbers, the units of which are the Yard, Area, Foot, Gallon, Pound and Dollar, all ol which, even now, are prac tical English terms in common use. In order to increase these primary units, he would pre fix the Greek numerals, deka, hecto, kilo and myrta; and decrease them in the same ratio by the Latin prefixes, dec), centi, and milli, Deci expresses the tenth part;centi the hun dredth and milli the thousandth; whilst deka increases tbe value teu times; hecto, one hun dred times; kilo, one thousand times and my ria ten thousand times. For instance: the yard is the unit pf linear measure, and from this as a basis all the other units are derived. The following table will therefore express the measures ol length. yards. 10 milli-yards = 1 centi-yard = .01 10 centi-yards — 1 deci-yard = .1 lOdeci-yards =• 1 yard = 1 10 yards 1 deka-yard “ 10 10 deka-yards = 1 becto-yard = 100 10 hecto-yards = 1 kilo-yard = 1000 10 kilo-yards -=■ 1 m.yria-yard =» 10000 Take another example. The foot Is a unit of st lid measnre, and is a cube, each side of which is one third of a yard. The measure ol solidity is expressed by the following table: lOmilli-ieet =« 1 centi-foot *= .01 10 centi-feet =» 1 deci-foot = -I lOdeci-feet = 1 foot ■= 1 10 feet » 1 deka-foot = 10 10 deka-feet = 1 heeto-foot = 100 10 heeto-l'eet = 1 kilo-foot •= 100O 10 kilo-feet = 1 myria foot = 10000 Similar tables express, by decimal numliers, measures ol surface, weight, capacity and val ue. The foregoing examples sufficiently illus trate the system and its nomenclature. Mr. Bliss does not coniine the decimal sys tem to mere Metrology; but reduces it also to the reckoning of Time and Longitude, which must be a great advantage to navigators espe cially. He would not have the Jay begin in the night,—At low 12, which is no astronom ical poiut to start from,—but at high noon when the sun is vortical; and instead of hav ing a day divided into two parts, requiring a repetition of numerals, he would have the twenty-four expressed by their regular num bers. Some weeks since, we noticed a com munication Irom Mr. Bliss, in Iho Kennebec Journal, in which he elaborated a decimal system of Metrology,both learnedly and clear lo. We shall do the best justice to this part of his subject by copying the following por tion of the article alluded to : For the purpose of completing the system we present in connection with the foregoing a somewhat novel tabic ot Time and Longitude combined. To effect this the hour is divided into fifteen equal parts or degrees, the degrees into sixty parts or minutes (which take the place ol seconds) and the minute iuto sixty seconds, die latter falling back and taking the place ot hundreths of seconds, which «re now used in nice astronomical calculations. Thus: B0 seconds = 1 minute 00 minutes — 1 degree 15 degrees ■= 1 hour 24 hours 1 day or circle. These measures uncombined are almost uni versal. Why should they liecome less so by union? The consummation of this scheme would necessitate the introduction of astronomical instead ot civil time, and counting tho hours from oue to twenty-four in succession instead of from one to twelve twice ami marking the parts A. M. and P. M. It will also be necessa ry to commence the day at noon, when a pre cise point can be determined by the culmina tion of the sun at the meridian, and not at midnight, when no point can be fixed from which to start by an observation. By this ar rangement the reduction of time to longitude and the reverse in navigation and in astronom ical calculations is avoided, to say nothing ot other obvious advantages pertaining to this improved plan. Even a cursory ciaiumauon oi cue decimal system here presented cannot fail to convince the intelligent student of its superiority in log ical coherence and simplicity over the complex systems now in use. To say nothing of the in estimable advantage of a uniform decimal ra tio, nearly one-halt of the measures with their corresponding units arc dispensed with. The units remaining and used in this work arc with one exception such as are well known wher ever the English language is used. The term area, which has not previously been used in this country as a specific designation of super ficial contents, is a general expression for the same tiling, and is therefore in some degree suggestive of the measure to which it is applied. Tile yard is the basis from which all the other parts are derived. This is selected because its fength is determined through the oneratmn.ot gravitation, a natural force ot which is more nearly conttant than that ot any other. Though at first thought the introduction of the ill” ek and Latin numerals appears arbi trarv and unnatural, yet no violence is done to tbeuiuguage in which they already appear, ei ther alone or in composition with other words. For instance, we have decimal, ctnUped, mill, decade, hecatomb and my, ,ad. It will be seen tuat the whole vocabulary of the system is comprised in the names of the six measures and their respective units to which appropriate numerals are prefixed— nineteen words in all. II what we propose has not the element of universality, it might at least become interna tional, since we adopt terms used by the more important nations of the world. The foot is used in England, Russia, Prussia, Austria, Italy, Spaiu, Sweden and several other coun tries; the yard, pound and gallon in England and America; the dollar ill Spain and Ameri ca. Tlie method ot applying the Greek and Latin numerals is ideutitied with that adopted in France seventy years ago The time and longitude combination is in its nature univer sal liccause it corresponds with the nature of things. _ ' —A new newspaper is mentioned among the enterprises of the coming spring, In the inter ests of woman's rights.

Our friend tlie Rev. Maj. A. Deering »r Richmond (a worthy clergyman of the Free will Baptist eoiniuuniou, and a patriotic Major of one of our Maine regiments in tlie late re bellion,) has a communication in tlie Alliany Country Gentleman, in which he gives the re sults of several experiments made by him in tlie use of bone meal as a fertilizer. Jn the summer of lHtlf,, on a light, clayey loam, broke up the full before, with a light coat ol manure spteud on (and harrowed lu, we suppose,) be ore planting, lie tried raw bone meal on n ^aus. Upon the first lour rows , . .!! 8 ,ove'bil ot common bam manure in . .1 r '. i' n>a*i*nR il* as we should think very c oi .ins, which aie apt togrow too much o haulm and too little l0 seed if the soil Is highly enriched; and on four other rows be side the first plat, he deposited a handful of raw bone manure in each hill. They were cultivated alike through the season, and har vested at the same time tu autumn. He had a good crop, hut there was no perceptible dif ference in the .yield ot the rows, treated with manure or with bone meal. This would seem to show, that tlie fertilizing power ot bone is equal to that of manure—one handful of tlie first against a shovelful of the latter. But. query'.* will not a handful of bone meal cost as much as the shovelful of manure ? , If so, the advantage is not very apparent, unless in tlio transportation and application. •L.USI year lie tried another experiment, lie put Ida bone meal with ashes in the cellar dur ing winter; In spring the tone Seemed all dis solved. This he mixed with two quarts of soil to one of the bone and ashes, and applied the mixture to his potato field. On a few dill's ho dropped the potatoes first, at the usual dis tance of hills, and dropped upon the seed a handful of the mixture. On the balance of the piece, he strewed the mixture and dropped the seed on that, but, of course, bringing less of the mixture in contact with the potato slips. In the first rows the potatoes were nearly all killed; in the rest of the piece they did finely. Query? Was it the strong aikaliof the ashes, or the comminuted bone which killed in the first experiment; and to whieli of the substan ces in the mixture was our friend Indebt ad for the fineness of bi t crop'.1 Furthermore, he says he once strewed some bone meal on rows of turnips when he planted the seed; they came up and grew well for a time, then every one died. Lastly, on three acres of barley he sowed twelve bushels equal parts of bone meal, salt, lime and plaster. He hail a good crop of bar ley, and never Haw so good a catch of grass, which remained green till winter, and was a matter of ati jant admiration to all the neigh bors. Query ? Which did the most good to his barley ? and was not the excellent oatdi of grass owing more to the moisture of the sea son, and the thinness of the barley, which did not stille the young grass, than to any partic ular value in the tone, salt, lime or piaster '.1 Experiments in agriculture arc important and shoukl be encouraged. They are the tests of truth; but in order that tiie tests may be made reliable, all the circumstances and con ditions liearing upon them should be carelully considered.
