I OUR WASHINGTON LETTER.
WASHINGTON, D. C., Feb. 7,1871.
Iii the House on Saturday "ball and
cbaic" Porter, of Va, wanted to intro?
duce a resolution lookiug to the protec?
tion of negro cadets at West Point, and
on a vote to suspend the rule only 24
voted in the affirmative. The elephan
tine negro which the Radicals have oe
their hands ii nigh well "played out,"
and tis for West Point, the management
ofthat institution under the presen:
administration is villainous.
The Sub-Committee wiitin vestigated
? the West Point outrage recommend that
the three members of the fourth class,
who were diiven from the institution,
be restored, and that all of the first
class, and others who were guilty of such
gross behaviour, including Cadet Grant,
Son of Ulysses, "ehip of the old block?
head/' cadet Townseud, son of the Ad?
jutant General Towcscnd, and cadet
Farragut, son of Admiral Farragut, be
expelled from West Point. These ca?
dets, from the positions beld by their
fathers, run the institution just as they
please, in total disregard of rules, regu
I lat'ons, orders, ?igrrts or deccucy, and
they are npheld in their insubordination
aud bad conduct by the President, who
when cadets of the first class have been
gr found guilty by Court martial, has par?
doned them. The conduct of the officers
has also been sevcrly censured for neglect
? cf duty. To save West Point from decay
.and contempt, an example must bc
?made of both the guilty cadets, Presi?
dent's son orno Presidcnt'sson, and the
.officers of the institution, and a vigilance
I exercised to see that Presidential favor
J itisrn bc excluded from it during the
i rest of this wbcci'e, corrupt and profl?
igate administration. That Congress
I will white wash, or let oft easily, is ex
Ipeeled so far as the cadets are concerned
The officers will probaly be made thc
scapegoats in order to shield thc eldest
born of our I'lysrcs.
The President, standing between the
nervous and anxious Radicals of the
(North and West and the rampageous
Radicals of thc South, has determined
to shirk the responsibility * of either
sighing the bill repealing the test oath
[' or of vetoing it, and will let it become a
law by thc constitutional expiration of
the ten days in which he had fc> sign
or v?to it, thus making Congress respon?
sible for its results, be they good or
bad. to the Radical party.
The Soathcm Pacific Railroad bill
in the House yesterday, was refcrrtd by
a vote of 129 to Cl, the Committee to
report it any time after the 15th inst.
This action insures it* passage this ses?
sion. A latge number of Democratic
ijmembers voted for this bill on thc
Aground that it was simple justice to
thc South to have ibis road.
?The presence here of a number of
- ; prominent New York politicians, of
both the Coukling and thc Fenton
; wings, has given rise to the belief that
> great efforts arc being made to heal thc
t differences and re-unite the party in
I that State. Collector Murphy is here
jp to assis: in the passage of the last Radi
j cal electioneering fraud, the cnlorce
mcnt bill, but at the same time he
wants peace, as Senator Fenton is mak?
k/ ing things very warm lor him in New
-j York, and will make it worse if Grant
\. an J Conkling continue to ignore him
ic the patronage in that State. From
present indications, New York is not
only hopelessly Democratic but it is
more ti.ai' doubtful, il the present feud
continue*, whether the Radicals vould
not bc for some other caudidate for the
Presidency than Grant, hence the anx
?cly to patch up a peace.
It is stated that the fi-Lcries trou !
blc>< wore purposely provoked by Eng.;
land, in accordante with a plan long!
.' laid, so that when our Government j
cisjc to urgt; a settleineut of the Abba. :

leges might be offeied as a proof of
friendship, but really for the purpose
Jj of stiil further delaying the
adjustment %uf the more import?
ant question involved in these
claims. From what 1 can learn the mes
' scrigcr sent by the President after the
San Domingoj<?b expedition, waa for
thc purpose of their recall, not on ac
couut of Cabral's success as stated, but j
because thc English Government have
made such veiy liberal offers with regard j
to thc fisheries question aud the Alaba,

Senator ftom Chesterfield
This act of usurpation overleaps ev
principle of right and freedom, i
sweeps away, at one fell swoop, ev
vestige of power, constitutional gu
antee and safe guard, as reposed in
ballot b<<x. If thc House ot Represe
tat i ves has thc power in this case, it 1
the power to scud home every Refo
member, and to declare ?hat none 1
Radical members phall occupy seats,
the will of the people what it may.
The facts attending this case a
extraordinary. A majority of the co
tu i t toe (radical members) charged wi
the case, after full and searching ion
ligation, fully establish the fact th
these members received a majority
the votes cast and were legally eleote
and so reported to the Hou?e, recoi

their scats. K small minority of tl
committee report io favor of seating tl
contestants. The majority report
disregarded, and that of lac tu i nor ii

Io order to show the power of port
sway and corruption to stay conscient
and strangle truth aud justice, we wi
state flPfaet as connected with thia case
One of the committee ou the part of th
minority, who signed the falsified re
port, was called upon hy a member t
know thc, facti, io order that he migh
determine how he should vote, fte
from all party control, and on the sid
ol truth and justice. The question wa
put; direct : From the showing mad
before the Committee, did or did eo

dressed, with exquisite taste, in fall

fur half an hour been importuning said

the Adonis, who had created a great
sensation by his imposing (out ensemble

Dr. Watson, in the Index, relates the
following incident : An incident occur
red near the close of the General Confer?
ence which developed the principle and
fixed the future policy of the church. It
was this, that no white man could be a
member of the colored church. Some
substantial reasons were given by Bishop
Miles and others why such persons
never should be admitted. He said he
did not want to be any whiter, nor did
he desire a white brother to be aoy
blacker. Bishop Paine said that was
the trae key note. Admit one, aud
others, designing men, might join the n
for their own selfish motives. They all
agreed, so far as we could learn, that
thc races were to bc kept, distinct in
their churches, fully endorsing the
doctrine we have always advocated io
the index. ?
