The main points made by Senator Morrill in the extended letter on the subject of back pay, which we rrint to-day, are that he was opposed to the increase of salary, first, last and all the while; that the amount of back pay coming to him wa, nevertheless mado his to dispose of by the action of Congress ; that he took what at the time he thought was the fairest and mo-t equitable course in turning the money OTcr to the State treasury ; and that on further deliberation he sees no reason to alter that conclusion. It would be well for those who have been so free to take other people's consciences into their charge, and to point out to them the ciact line of duty in this matter, to remember tome of these things. Jlr. Morrill might, we believe, hare safely let this matter pas without a word of explanation. Hat it is certainly not surprising that gentlemen o...
