Address I?y General Rnusiesn.
HIS ACCOUNT OP THE Al-ACE Ul'ON Mil. OIUNNKLL.
Mnjor-Qonor-l Loy_j_ H. Rousseau, lately a
representative in CongresB from the Fifth District
of Kentucky, has issued an address to bis?con
stituents iu relation to his recent affair in Con
gress. It ia a somewhat singular production,
written in a livoly stylo. Tho General explains bia
difficulty with Mr. Giunnell, telling nothing now
except that Guinn ell was physi ally one of the
strongest men of tho House. His description of
the assault is laconic :
I ratancd Grinnell. He unresistingly received
the castigatiou, and rep? at only said it was "all
right," and promptly assured me he did not wish
to hurt me.
General Ga* field appears to have wounded his
sensibilities still further. "Tho speech," be says,
"was vociferous and fierce ; and like an actor hired
to pump up passion, ho snorted himself into a
rage, and raved through tho case."
"And thus wo eco a lato soldier, a general of
the army, standing on tim floor of the House of
Representatives of tho United States, and at
tempting to iufiuonco its judgment in the trial of
a brother member, by ore? ing a sensation, and
arousing tho passions of his hearers by an exag
gerated detail of a coi temptible matter that
should never have been heard in that body-an
affair which would hardly have disturbed n toa
party of old maids.
"But all this, as well as his gratuitous denun
ciation of a former brother soldier, was of course
prompted by his 'friendship' for me. Save me
from all such friends and friendship! On the in
stant of his announcement of tho fist-fight as a
'bloody and brutal outrage.' Mr. Alley, of Massa
chusetts, with shivering limbs and tremulous
voice, and finely acted artistic emotion, intro
duced a resolution that the young man, victor in
the tremendous fisticuff below, should bo arrest
ed, and held for punishment by the House. The
effect of this was dramatic in the extreme; men's
faces paled, arid many seemed to think that the
world demanded an instant victim. The resolu
tion was adopted, and the arrest of the pugilist
ordered. This terrible interlude over, the parti
san friends of Grinnell grimly but triumphantly
proceeded to the immense work before them."
The General, alter excoriating General Oak
field, next takes < ff General Banes. It is, to say
the least, very dramatio :
"General Banks eat in solemn silence and look
ed on, with a countenance of gravity and wisdom
during the harangue of Wilson, and even dur
ing the magnificently dramatic effort of Garfield
to aohieve a flurry caused by the announcer, nt
of a fist-fight, but finally, after the previous ques
tion-which cuts off all reply-was called and
seconded, arose to take bia part in the mighty
affair. His voice, oultivated and attuned to -?bat
of an ambitious baritone, lacking only the Italreu
melody and finish, rang out in full but unvarying'
and monotonous notes, and penetrated every
nook and oorner of the amphithealred hall, re
sounding baok from the furthest galleries, and
heard by everybody in and about the building
except perhaps by the two chaps engaged in the
sanguinary fist-fight in the basement of the Capi
"The General was eloquent, and, like Garfield
and Wilson, over strong on the stronger side. In
true tragedian style, he informed the House that
this was a momentous period in our history. Tho
House did not know, but I happened to be in
formed as to what he alluded. I had been told
that before the committee he contended that as
the Southern, representative* would soon be,, again
in Congresa it behooved th? House to ser an ex
ample and make a precedent in my case, that
would deter them In all time to come from resent
ing any offences or supposed offences that might
be offered them."
The next scone in the play was the reprimand
itself. * He depicts a scene of confusion on the
occasion of a genoral rush for law-breaks and
precedents, and adds :
"The erect and energetic Chairman, in his inau
dible efforts to keep order-hammering away
with his mallet -was quite as impotent over the
disturbed crowd as an automatio figure would
have been, or a toy speaker pounding on a toy
"Perhaps the victim might escape ! Rousseau,
although cenr-ured in fact by the action of the
House, might, after all the trouble and fuss, get
rid of the hanging and quartering that wero set
down for bim in the bill, and which the zealous
prosecutors came there to witness, and which
some of them predicted he would run away from
and avoid. The delight might not be experienced
of seeing the victim march up with the Sergeant
at-arnia and be reprimanded, like a culprit, at the
Bar of the House. Radical piety could no more
brook to bo tbus baffled than could Shy lock in the
play, or the good people of the old days, when in
tent on drowning a witch or burning a heretic.
In fact, the soeno was not unlike Pope's descrip
tion of an excited spinster :
'Then flashed the vivid lightning from her eyes.
And aer?ame of horror rend th? affrighted skl?s;
Not louder shrieks to pitying Heaven are cast
When husbands or when lap-dogs breathe their last.' "
To avoid being led up by the Sergeant-at-Arms,
the General Bays that he hastened to tho Bar alono.
He concludes as follows :
"I have no regret for my conduct in the matter.
I would have chastised Grinnell at every hazard,
and I would do it again to-morrow under similar
circumstances. No man shall ever inBult, with
impunity, my people or myself, and on this issue
I submit the case to your hands."
A itECENT Paris correspondent gives the ages of
a number of French authors and academicians:
"Guizot, now well on his seventy-eighth year,
went down to his country farm the other day, still
teres el rotundas, or rather somewhat angular, but
tough of purpose and active of intellect as ever;
Victor Hugo is sixty-four, Dumas sixty-three.
Lamartine Boventy-six, Thiers, friskiest of all
academicians, touched his sixty-ninth birthday
last Monday week, and sat up half the night last
week to correct the proofs of his recent thror?
hours' speech, as clever as any ho uttered thinv
years ago in the Cbamhor of Deputies. The aver
age ago of academicians is notoriously lou.-;
though that do.B not count for much here, sopi'i?
that they havo boen rarely elected until they h.ivo
given more thau forty yearn' proof of vitality, and
that not more than halt of them can pass mr,.-" er
as men who have pushed their brains in intellec
CnuEL Joke.-Tho Paris correspondent of the
Nation tells of a learned savan connectod with the
Garden of Plants who has been trying for some
time, but unsuccessfully, to hatoh three orocodile
o__a, (two of them ?hito and ono red), pre
sented him last winter by a traveller returned
from the East. The failure of the learned doctor
to hatoh those eggs, which he carried constantly
in his bosom for the last seven months, wrarvped
in a flannel wai?tcoat especially donned for (hat
purpose, is attributed to the faot of their being
billiard balle, abstracted from a "hell" at Cairo.
A correspondent at Athene,. Tem)., givtA the
following description or what he styles the lafgeat
girl in the world : ?She lives at Sweetwater JTen
neaace, woighes 125 pounds, and is namedBalico
Leroy Leath. She is five years old, blue jftyed,
dark haired, rosy chocked, quick spoken, arjfl bas
a beautiful countenance." Her father wasftMod
in tho Union army at Reaaoa. Tho littlo.?weet
monster is no show, but ia a remarkably wW ?*e*
Telopea specimen of Xoung America."
