Congress-The Closing Seenes.
The National Intelligencer, of Mon.
day, gives the following graphic sketch'
of the closing scenes in Congress:
After midnight, in the all night ses.
sion-of Friday and Saturday, a wild
scene was presented in the House. Du.
rmog the earlier hou.s of Friday night,,
i i customary feasts had been prepared
by varioii subordinate officers. In the
rooins of' the postmaster and door.keep.
cr, oxtensive hospitalties had b6it die
played-lavish lunclei,' with'every de.
s'rable ploitnble with' which' .6'. wash

ridiculous resolutions, makihg. funny.
motions, .Yelting one anotftervith paper
balls,. tickling the nostrils of unbon..
1,4scious s!eepers, and plaOing all sorts of
pranks peculiar to sehdol boys on the'
eve of holiday. were the order of the
night. Evetv voting by tellers was
turned into a joke. the members passing.
in squads so as tod'efy a count, some of
them passing six or seven. tirpes". upon
the same motion, and voting indifferent.
ly on both rides as ollen as possible.
At one time, the hall had the appear
ance of a vast restaurant and lodging
house. A distinguished member from'
Ohio, and another from New * York,
were complaceitly devouring an early
. breakfast spre't*ii grand array upon'
their respective desks. A military
member from NVw gatiisbire had
dropped his read iuoihis knes and
made the holl resound ulti stentormn"
sounds. Others were reclining ini their
chairs or p read over their desks fast
locked in the -imbrace of Morpheus.:
The sofas were'ill occuoied. Radicals
ivdrgne,-s&rie g mif
easv..nttidudes; and others doubl'ed up
like victims of a severie crat .colid. The
scene truly ludicrons, but good' humour
prevailed, and all bnsiness was persist
ently voted d'own, dxcept the reports of
the conference committees, the presenta
tion of wi6h was theisignal foji arous
ihg the slunibering lieroes of the House
fbng enough to vote,.
The Intelligencer gives the rump Con
gress the following parting, buf well.
merited- kick to its me 'bers:
The rump Congress has a'djouined.
Its ses4ioh of eight hiiheowiijk months,
boding ill like an impenJing- pestilence,
has at length gone past, and is of the
dism lthings that were. Convolving
cloud have dar'<eiied. our sky;. the'
lightni? of a fell revolutionary purpose
have flished across the' &'u,m, but the
bolt has'it yet descended, and the -
wild sweep of the storm ot civil war is,
thanks to God, for a time arrested.
This Congress will ever be most coh.
spicuously infamous in the categoit of
the worst orgainizatiois having govern.
mental functions that h'ave dishonored
and sham'bd enlightened society in all
the world's history. Its dispersion from'
