The Congressional Stage.
Comedy, Tragedy, and Farce, all in one Play*
WASHINGTON, March 5.-In the
House to day Mr. Hazelton (Rep.,
Wis.,) rising to correct the Record,
said that .ast-nighthe had replied to!
a speech made by the gentleman from
Ohio (Mr. Warner,) in which that gen
tieman had alluded to pensioners of
the government as "hospital pimps."
On l ing at the Record this morn
ing he foind that the portion of the
speech to which he had replied had
been stricken out. [Laughter.] He
would not have referred to the cir
eumstance bet for the fact that it was
the custom of the gentleman from
Ohio to ' strike out portions of his
speeehes. He (Mr. Hazelton) had
made three or four speeches, and they
had-gon.o bom e, but the objections to
which they replied having been re
moved by the party himself, his con
stituents could not appreciate them.
[Laughter.] He had obtained a man
uscript copy of the notes of the official
reporter, and he desired to have the
Record corrected in conformity with
Mr. Warner (Dem., Ohio) said that
be had not had time to refer to the
notes of the speech of the gentleman
from Wisconsin (Mr. Hazelton,) but '
he was certain-and a number of
gentlemen agreed with him-that
some change, at least, had been made
in that speech.
Mr.; Hselton : Not a word by me.
Mr. Warner. said that he had used
the woi s',hospital pimps," which be
had desired at the time to ask might
be stricken out, but now that the mat
ter was brought up, he was inclined
to thiak that his speech as he had!
made it was best. In striking it out,
however, he had done nothing more
than was done by every member of
Mr. Hazelton expressed his willing
ness to have the official reporter state
whether he had made the slightest
change in his speech. He was sat
isfied that the gentleman from Ohio
knew, when he made the insinuation
(for- he was not brave enough to
charge it openly) that he had not al
t'red his speech, that he had never
changed one word or letter of the re
porter's notes. Furthermore, this was
an old trick of the gentleman from 1'
Ohio. : Whenever that gentleman had
made a declaration which bad been
replied to, and he had not liked the
reply c,r the character of what he had
stated -le had in the night time, in
his -seest ehaufber,- struck out what
was objectionable to himself, leaving
the. reply as naked and bald as a
mountain top. [Laughter.]
Mr. Warner : I deny that absolute
ly, audi the- gentleman cannot under
takew refer to a single case of that
kind. I denounce that as a falsehood,
here and now.
Mr. Haz.leton: For which I will
hold the gentleman responsible
A Republican member : Oh, don't !
Mar Haselton : Not with daggers
or epfee or pistols. [Loud laughter.]
Mr. Warner denied that he had
applief the term "hospital pimps'' to
pensioners of the Governmwent, but
only-to eertin of the pension claim
ants before Congress.. If the gentle
man from WiscoAsia. thought to
frighten him1 Jie was mistaken.. He.
(Mr.MWaTi knEi*very well that
the gentleman had never been in
the army, that he had been as close
to the Canada border as he could get,
and that he imained so far in the
rear, us to, be beyond the roar of~'the
loudest cannon. [Laughter.]
Mrg Han~tn :- am not surprised
that the gentleman stands on the
ifoor to .. blow .his own trumpet for
what lie did iiithe war. 'As near as I
fid it, 'he was wounded early, sought
a pensions~early, and the wound"'for
which he receives that pef~ion is in'
his,bsk. [Loud laughter.]
Mr. 'Warner: There is no better
evidence of a coward
The -Speaker":'The Chair thinks
that this is out of order.
Mar. Wager (continuing): Than
that he should shoot a soldier in the
back. .That is the only way he shoots.
I do not propose 'here to proclaim my
own deeds. I refer this House and
the' country to the record I made on
the 14tle-field, in campaigns and in
cans,3from the beginning of the war
to the end. I refer the gentleman to
the PeninsuTar, to South Mountain, to
Antietam, where I suffered as severely
eas any man in that battle. No man
safered more than I did. I re,fer him
to the reports of my superior officers.
A gentleman who stayed at home,
who is willing and has no better
spir'it than to come here and assail
the record of a soldier of which he
knows nothing, deserves, the character
I have given him.
Mr. Hazelton: Did you not assail
my manhood and charge me with be
ing in Canada ? [Laughter.]
The matter was here dropped, and
the House adjourned.
'Ibe generosity of the Hebrews of

more, has subjected that people to

Opinions of Prominent Men in Washington
City-What .udge H. D. D. Twiggs Saw
and Heard on a Recent Visit to the
Judge H. D. D. Twigga. who has
just been on a visit to the North and
principally to Washington City, the
present centre of interest, returned
yesterday morning. A Chronicle rep
resentative talked with him during
the day in reference to what he heard
in the capital about the political sit
Reporter-"What seemed to be the
general impression in regard to the
Republican candidate f6r President ?"
Judge Twiggs-"There seemed to
be no doubt in regard to that matter.
It is very generally admitted that
Grant will be the nominee. The Re
publicans will not give up the Gov
ernment if they can help it. They
expect, if there is any trouble, that
Grant will take the seat anyhow.
There are some people there who
think that if he does get in he will be
the last President of the United
States ; that he never will give up his
position at the head of the Govern
ment. There are a large number of
Republicans who do not want Grant
because they are opposed to the third
term. They say a third term is con
trary to the spirit of the Constitution,
to established precedent and they do
not believe that law should~be violated
now. On the other hand, it is con
tended that there has been another
President since Grant's second term
and that if Grant is elected now it
will not really be a third term. Judge
Jere Black, however, has ably ex
ploded that assertion in the March
number of the Vorth American Re
view. It was the intention of the
framers of the Constitution that a
man should not hold the Presidential
office more than twice, and Washing
ton, Jefferson and Madison showed
their appreciation of that unwritten
law - by. refusing to accept a third
"Who is considered the strongest
man of the Republican party ?"
"Blaine, unquestionably. Grant is
decidely the weakest and easiest man
to beat, and for that reason I hope the
Republicans will nominate him, as I
feel satisfied they will. Mr. Blaine is
a very magnetic man and has great
popularity. He will be the hardest
man for the Democracy to beat and.
therefore, I hope he will not be nom
inated. I believe he would Imake a
jtand fair Executive. He has a
great many personal friends even
among the Democrats of the Senate
"What. did you gather in regard to
the Democratie candidate ?"
The -sentime~nt in reference to the
Democratie nominee is very unset
setled among the leaders. I believe
Mr. Bayard is the strongest man and
would win the race. He is very pop.
ular at the North and a large number
of Republicans will vote for him. A
prominent Republican said to~ me :
"We are going . to. nominate Grant
and we are going to beat you because
you will blunder by nominating Til
den or some other unpopular mnan.
Now if you should nominate B'ayard,
it would be a close race and your
chanes would be excellent. I be
lieve he could.carry New York, Con
necticut and other doubtful States."
The same man said New York was to
day Democratic by forty-thousand ma
jority. Of course the;.South will
vote. for whoever is, nominated, but
much depends upon the vote of the
South in the Convention. I do not
believe the financial issue will enter at
all into the next campaign. The Re
publicos will hoist the bloody shirt
as their banner and wake the most of
it they can. I did think that issue
was worn threadbare, but it is now
certainthat they are going to ring it
thoroughout the campaiga. They are
already sending emissaries throughout
the country and thoroughly organ-.
izing the party on that issue.

to me for all we have in common
srffered, and lost, than such ex

the welcome you tender, but cir

deny me the pleasure of being with
you at the time stated.
For a cause not less j'ist, and, I
think, more demonstrable than that
of your Revolutionary Fathers, you
bore privations, encountered dau
gers, and performled feats, which,
when history shall truly record
them, will make yon~r children and
yot'r children's children prou~d of
their lineage. The long lisi of sig
natures to your invitation is to me
a much prized treasure, and will be
preserved for the few days which
remain to me.
Be assured, gentlemen, partakers
with me'ina the hopes of the past,
and the sorrow with which we saw
them disastrously crushed, Breth

defeat than in victory, I tender to

This Society is one recently char
tered by the Clerk of the Court of
Newberry County, and its purposes
are for the improvement and elevation
of the colored people in our County.
The principal features of the Order
point to the cultivation of good morals,
and the stimulation of their race to
honesty and true manhood. It al
ready embraces the better portion of
our colored people, and it will be char
tered by the next Legislature.

A Good Housewife.
The good housewife, when she is
giving her house its spring renova
ting, should bear in wind that the
dear inmates of her house are more
precious than many houses, and that
their systems need cleansing by puri
fyiug the blood, regulating the stom
ach and'- bowels to prevent and cure
the diseases arising from springina
laria and miasma, and she must know
that there is nothing that will do it so
perfectly and surely as Hop Bitters,
the purest and best of medicines.
