The “Confederate” Congress.--The first Congress of the Confederate States, under the permanent Constitution, will be composed of twenty-two Senators
and eighty-seven Representatives.
The representation will be as follows, being in the ratio of one member for every ninety thousand of population, on the Federal
basis, counting three-fifths for slaves.
We add, in a column, the electoral vote of each State in the Confederacy
, as constituted now, is composed, therefore, of eighty-seven members, and the whole electoral vote is one hundred and nine.
The number of the House
may be increased by the accession of new States before the meeting of Congress in February.
There are some States which may be in the Confederacy
then.--New Orleans Picayune
