The Honse Committee on Foreign Affairs con?
siders Cuba next week.
The gold panic investigation has closed. The
report will cover several hundred printed pages.
Mr. Gibson, attorney for Governor Bullock and
his delegation, read his argumeut before the Judi?
ciary Committee-themain point endeavored to be
made being that Hill was elected senator by Ille?
gal votes. The difference between the Bullock
and Bryant factions seems to be that Bullock
wants all former legislation tabooed. Bryant
wants it recognized up to the expulsion of the ne?
groes, at least, and favors the validity of all acts
of the Legislature.
Bryant and CaltlwcU presented printed argu?
ments that the presen'. Legislature is illegal, and
asked Congress for a remedy.

Cox hoped the bill would be reported and passed

WASHINGTON, February 10.
There are two parties In Congress lu favor
of removing political disabilities-one for a
substantial general amnesty'anirtbe other for
. peddling them out by plecc-nieal, as illustrated
in the bills now vibratiug between the two
houses. The former are sustained by the mod?
erate Republicans lrora the North, while the
latter are confined almost wholly to the carpet?
bag element. At the meeting of the Recon?
struction Committee on yesterday, even But?
ler exhibited a liberal spirit, as compared with
Whittemore and men of that class on the com?
mittee, and went so far as to favor 'granting
amnesty to all parties, on application to the
United States District Court; but Lawrence, of
Ohio, moved to amend the bill so
as to except from amnesty all those
who have ever oeen in Congress or in
the army or navy, and subsequently partici-.
pated in the Conf?d?rale war. Butler accep?
ted this, but told the committee that when the
bill came into Hie House he should move to
strike it out ami leave it in a shape so thar any
peaon politically disabled by the 3d section uf
the fourteenth amendment may apply to the
.United States District Court, which is required
to grant amnesty pro forma, unless some ob?
jection be filed within* thirty days. This must
be of ti valid character, and be sustained by
evidence sufficient to justit; the court in pro?
ceeding to an examination of the same. The
decision is discretionary with the judge, os iu
other cases, and thc bill, as it now stands, per?
mits no appeal. When the court grants a de?
cree of pardon or amnesty, all that is required
of the person receiving it", Is to make oath that
lie will remain loyal to the Government of the
United States. The torin of oath prescribed
is exactly that now exacted of naturalized cit?
izens, if it bc established that a bill of this
character is constitutional, there can hardly be
any doubt but that it will be parsed through i
Congress, even by a two-thirds vote, if such a ?
vote be necessary. ,
No sooner does the Supreme Court make a
decision striking down some of the uuconsti- :
tutional measures passed und -.' the head of
the uwar power,1' than the Radicals proceed to
patch up the constitution to cover up the loss ,
of ground. The last case in illustration is, the
decision on the legal tender cases, where the 1
court strikes down the legality of the act, so 1
far as it is attempted to make it retroactive in ?
the enforcement of contracts made before 18C2, ,
and would undoubtedly have declared the act ,
unconstitutional in all* its applications sttbsc- .
quent to that time, bad that question actually
been before the court. So Mr. Ingersoll, ol
Illinois, attempted yesterday and to-day to itt- .
troduce a sixteenth amendment to the consti- ;
tution of the United States, authorizing Con- ,
gress to issue paper money and make it a legal ,
tender for tiie payment of all private and pub?
lic debts. The Democrats, by parliamentary '
means, have thus far prevented its introduc- '
tlon, and are coufides:, when ?t, comes tu <
a final struggle, that ir. cannot commaud
a **'(>"thir(-- ? otc. Ono great argument against ,
SU*? an amendment is founded in the fact that
men of all parlies agree that the decision of 1
the Supreme Court is the most important step 1
taken since the war, on the road to specie pay- i
nients. It certainly negatives thc Western de?
mand for the issuejtf more legal tenders.
The Senate Postal Committee have agreed
to report a bill incorporating the Mediterranean
Steamship Company, which bas been rmlorsed :
by the Southern Boards of Trade and some of :
the Southern Legislatures. Congress will prob?
ably give the company the ocean postages for
all the mails they may carry. The agents of
the company befe say that they will be" ready,
as soon as thc bill becomes a law. to starla
line from the South, and intend to make ?inmi?
gration a principal feature of it. They feel so
far assured of the success ol the scheme that
partial contracts have been entered into for
the purchase of vessels to com menee opera?
tions by the first of June. Notwithstanding
thc great decline of American toanaire. Con?
gress does not seem disposed to follow the ex?
ample of the British Parliament, as illustrated
in the Cunard line, by making an appropria?
tion of mouied subsidies and oihccrhig thc line
by American naval officers. However, n spe?
cial committee ot the House bas this very
question under consideration, and by making
a terrible exhibit or the decline of the Ameri?
can carrying trade, mav induce Congress te
change its views.
The Senate yesterday passed, and the House
to-day referred, the bill removing the political
disabilities from the SouU Carolinians as pub?
lished in the special telegram of TUE NEWS on

COLUMBIA, February ll.
.irnnE OF THE FIFTH cmccrr.
The moot ?ny in "joint assembly," yesterday,
of both bodies of the General Assembly, resulted
iu a most disgraceful scene. The action of a
largo number or the colored and a few white
members or the House could not hare been ex?
ceeded in noise, gesticulations and gibberish by a
menagerie Tull or hair-starved monkeys over a
haudful of chestnuts, or by a hundred or two of
Patagonians over a few glass b;-ads and red flan?
At one o'clock yesterday, in pursuance of a
concurrent resolution, thc Senate proceeded to
Ute hall or the House of Representatives. Corbin
took the chair, called tho "joint assembly" to
order, and aunouticcO that it convened pursuant
to a concurrent resolution, for the purpose of en?
tering into an election of judge for the Fifth Judi?
cial Circuit of the State or South Carolina, to All
the unexpired term aud vacancy occasioned by
the death of the late Eon. Lemuel Boozer, and the
chair was now ready to receive nominations.
There was a larger crowd present than upon
the occasion of the election of Wright to thc Su?
preme Beuch. The galleries au? that portion of
the floor unoccupied by the legislators were filled
with spectators, the large majority or whom were
white, and many of them residents of Columbia
and personal friends of Mr. S. W. Meltc:*. a promi?
nent candidate. It had been predicted before the
meeting that a disturbance during it was proba?
ble, yet there was very little indication of such a
result. There appeared to bc little reeling among
the members, and there was by no means any
signs of excitement, such as marked the initia?
tory proceedings or the recent election for asso?
ciate justice. Mr. S. W. Melton sat a little to the
left or the Speaker's stand, and two others or the
candidates, Messrs. Earle and Cooke, occupied
seats la the rear portion of the hall. ?
As soon as thc chairman announced that nomi?
nations were in order, T. K. Sasportas, colored,
stated that as there was no Republican mention?
ed iu connection with the judgeship living in the
circuit, he had a right to nominate one living out?
side ol it, and he would nominate Thompson H.
Cooke, of Orangeburg, who ever since reconstruc?
tion began had been a consistent Republican.
Alter praising thc Republicanism and zeal of his
candidate, and reading a set of resolutions from
the Loyal League ol Orangeburg, recommending
him Tor the position. Sasportas sat down, and W.
J. Whipper, colored, took the floor. He said sub?
stantially that whenever a Republican and a man
or different politics were running Tor oillce, and
other things were nearly equal, he bad voted and
would vote ror the Republican; but that thc man
he intended to nominate Co-day could not
throw around him the halo of Republican?
ism. In hi3 (Whipper's) brier political
life he had met too many bright, new fledged Re?
publicans, and hereafter bc intended to look Tor
something better than mere professors or Repub?
licanism on thc eve or an election-as was the
case with too many of these new fledged Repub?
licans-for whom he might say he had a profound
contempt. He desired to nominate one whom he
had said did not claim to be a Republican-one
who went into the ?ate war on thc southern side
determined to do all he could to make it success?
ful; but, after the war, he, like a few others, who,
when the Southern people were "compelled by
force to yield-to bite the dust," accepted the
situation, and since then he has pursued his pro?
fession with credit to himself, as all of us here
know. While he has done nothing ror the Re?
publican party, yet he does not anu?ate with
the Democratic party. That man's name ls
Sarauel W. Melton, of Richland. The an?
nouncement or this name caused considerable
applause in thc galleries. After it subsided, De
Large paid a high tribute of praise to Melton, to
somewhat thc same purport as Whipper's re?
marks. Wilson Cooke, colored, nominated Wm.
E. Earle, cf Greenville. P.J. O'Connell nomina?
ted J. Scott Murray, or Audcrson. George M.
Wells stated that as, according to thc statements
of the other speakers, there was not material in
the Republican ranks, he would nominate a good
mau and au out-and-out Democrat-and named
Leroy F. Youmans, or Bdgcfield. W. C. Morrison,
colored, didn't desire to nominate either a Repub?
lican or Democrat, and named D. T. Corbin.
[Laughter.] Straits said he believed that all or
those who had been nominated were either Demo?
crats or shaky Republicans, and as he wanted a ,
souud man, he would nominate Coy Wingo,
colored, ol Spartanbarg. This nomination crea?
ted a little merriment, during which Rainey sc- i
conded it, and spoke briefly aud humorously in N
favor or Hie nominee, stating that he hail been a
member of the Constitutional Convention, and
?spired to bc tho attorney-^euoral ol' the State,
iud, as he had not gotten that 0.1'ce, deserved
some reward at thc hands of his party.
A* this point the chair announced that the vote
would be taken ciro voce. Each legislator, page
?ind almost everybody else, had secured a lead
pencil and a roll or the members of each body,
ind stood prepared to cheek ort' as the clerks
..ailed the names. Thc clerk of the Senate called
the roll or that body first. Arnim, Buck, Cain,
Foster, Leslie, Montgomery, Maxwell, Nash,
Raluey, Rose and Wimbush, voted for Melton;
Alleu, Barber. Dickson. Duncan, Hoyt, Johnston,
Lunney and Oweus, for Murray; Corbin and Jill
son, for Earle: Greene, for Cooke: and Swalli, for
Wingo. The whole number &f senators who voted
ivas twenty-three, <<[ which number Melton re?
ceived e^Ven, aud Murray eight votes. The
:lerk o? the House then called thc roll of
that body. Bosemon, nowley. Brodie, Brown,
Burton, Joseph Boston, Boswell, Bryant,
L. Cain, Crews, DeLr.rge, Dennis, Driflle,
Doyle, Elliott, Ezekiel, Ferltcr, Gray, Gard?
ner, Goodson, C. D. Hayne, J. N. Hayne, Harris,
D. J. J. Johnson, S. Johnson, Jackson, H. James,
Kuli, Lomax, G. Lee, S. J. Lee, Lewie, Littlejohn,
Mayer, Morrison, Win. McKinlay, Mickey, Mead,
Nelson, Purvis, Ramsler, Richardson, Stewart,
StOlbrand, Smalls, A. Smith, Saunders, Shrews?
bury, Simons, S. B. Thompson, Thomas, Turner,
Wilder, Whipper and Wright voted Tor Melton:
John Huston, K. J. Cain, Cooke, Collins, Cullin,
tiranr, Hayes, Humphries, Ilolliman, hutson,
Henderson. Jeuks, Jacobs, W. IL Jones, Lang,
Mcintyre, McDaniel?, Mobley, Moore, Miirord,
Mays, Miller, Mixon, Nuckles, Neagle, O'Conuell,
Perrin, Prendegrass, Koot, hush, Rivers. Smythe.
Scoli, Sullivan, Tinsley, Wilson, Waller, Woolley
and Wells for Murray; DeMars, Farr, Sasportas,
Smiling, for Cooke: H. Johnson, li. James, Tom
linson, Tor Earle; F. J. Moses, Jervey, ror C. W.
Montgomery. Thc whole number or representa?
tives who voted was one huudred and three, ol
which numocr Melton received fifty-live and Mur?
ray thirty-nine votes. C. W. Montgomery had
not been nominated, having refused to allow his
name to bc used.
The above vote is thc count as it stood when
announced. When the clerks finished calling the
rolls of their respective houses, Mellen had only
forty-nine votes, and Murray nearly thc same
number, neither having a suillcient number for
election. Rerore the vote could be counted mem?
bers commenced to change their votes from the
various nominees to Murray, and to Melton, mostly
to thc former. The desire to change was so great
that it caused considerable confusion. The friends
'?? Mellon observing that ir these state of affairs
were continue*' and tho constant changing of
votes, (caused, as the friends of Melton openly
asserted, by friends of Murray Inlying up the
members,) were allowed, Murray would be elected,
and endeavored to stop it by dissolving thc
"joint assembly," both DeLarge and Elliott mak?
ing motions to that effect. Tne vote was put and
the shouts of those opposing and favoriug it
seemed to be about equal, and the chair an?
nounced that it was unable to decide.
Upon this announcement being made there was
a scene of great disorder. Every other represen?
tative and senator yelled, "Mr President," who
recognized none, but with his gavel vainly endea?
vored to maintain order. Several members arose
to "points of order." Tomlinson shouted out that
it was his opinion that no "point of order" could
be entertained unless the "joint assembly" was in
order, and thought that if the members couldn't
act like human beings, it would be best "to let
them go home." Shouts, groans and hisses greet
ted this bold remark, during which Tomlinson
contended that it was a disgrace to the Gene
?al Assembly for members to act so jnfa
mously. Elliott denied that it was any
Infamy on thc part of those who were doing all
they could to prevent the piittlug upon the bench
or a man whose friends were exercising foul
means to do so. DeLarge addressed no one in
particular, but rushed about the House swearing
that the members were being bought to vote for
Murray: he knew who were doing the bribing,
and he intended to have them indicted for bribe?
ry and corruption. A colored man said: "Dcre's
some people says dere's bribery, corruption gwinc
on here; where's de bribery and where de corrup?
tion? I hain't seen none of it-hain't seen none
of dejrold dat dey say is being paid members to
change dere votes; I know nuffln "bout lt."
During all this time nearly every one was
standing, and a large majority shouting "Mr.
President." Elliott moved that a count of the
joint assembly be taken. The President nnaounc
ed eighteen senators and sixty-five representa?
tives present. Swails moved that the joint assem?
bly adjourn. The question was taken on agree?
ing to this motion, and decided In the negative.
M?SCLES VS. LUNGS.
Elliott endeavored to speak, but Corbin was de?
termined that he should not until the House came
to order. Elliott shouted, "Mr. President." Cor?
bin responded with a rap of his gavel. Now en?
sued a contest between Elliott and Corbin-thc
former to be recognized by thc latter and the lat?
ter to rap down the former. Thc louder Elliott
shouted "Mr. President," the harder and quicker
fell the gavel. Everybody became interested in
the struggle, all talking and moving about ceased,
and the only sounds heard were Elliott's shouts
and thc raps or the gavel. At last, after the gavel
had rallen eighty-one times, lungs yielded to mus?
cles, and Elliott sank back into his scat hoarse
and exhausted rrom his efforts to be heard.
Had Corbin yielded and allowed Elliott to
speak, the probability is that there would have
been a general row, as lt was understood that
Elliott Intended denouncing those whom it was
believed liad been bribed; and ns he, when excit?
ed, docs not mince his words, and as there
was intense feeling ou the part of thc friends of
both Melton aud Murray, there wa-; every rettsou
to believe that a collision between them would
CHARGES Of I1R1BERY AND CORRUPTION.
The noise and confusion which had subsided du?
ring the above contest, was resumed, during
which Elliott spoke, but was not heard. Leslie
stated that it could bc shown that improper In?
fluences had been brought to bear to elect .Mur?
ray, aud he asked that a committee bc appointed
to investigate. Just at this moment, Corbin nrosc
to announce the vote, when Leslie, doubtless
thinking that Murray was to bc announced as
elected, yelled: "You are now about to put upon
the people a mau whom I can prove was elected
by bribery and corruption:" whereupon he was
greeted willi groans, hisses and shouts of deris?
ion, and called by two or three names which are
not lit to be recorded hero. Corbin asked that
thc General Assembly have respect for Itself,
and that the members keep order. DeLarge
shouted that bribery and corruption had been
used to elect Murray, aud he intended exposing
it. [A voice: "Ye3, and some or you will bc hold
responsible if yon do any such thing."] Another
attempt was made by Melton's friends to dissolve
the "joint assembly," but it railed.
ANNOUNCEMENT OK THE VOTE.
During all this wordy turmoil and strffe, mem?
bers ascended thc stand and changed their votes
until Melton secured a majority, and those who
heard of it crowded around and congratulated
him. The disorder and tumult was now at Its
highest pitch. Corbin arose and commenced to
annouuee thc vote. Many attempted to prevent
bim b> arising to "points of order," others by yoi"
ling. Corbin read on without being heard, but thc
members observing that he was determined to
declare thc vote despite their efforts to prevent lt,
ceased their squabbling Tor a while, and Corbin
then announced thc vote as follows :
''Afr. S. W. Melton received.CC
Mr. J. S. Murray.47
Mr. T. H. Cooke. ?
Mr. \V. E. Earle. B
Mr. C. \V. Montgomery. 2

Corbin then declared "that Mr. Samuel \V. Mel?
ton, having received a majority of thc whole
number of votes given, was duly elected judge of
thc Filth Judicial Circuit, to lill the unexpired
term and vacancy occasioned by thc death of tho
late Hon. Lemuel Boozer," whereupon thc sup?
porters of Melton cheered, clapped their hands,
shouted, slung their hats and coats in air, waved
their chairs around their heads; the frlent?? or
Melton, who were in the galleries, also cheered;
his opponents hissed, groan jd, kicked over chairs
and desks, and gave vent to numerous other
manirestatlous or disapproval. Several hats
were slung into thc galleries. One Hue beaver
was pitched up by a colored possessor of a crown
less "reit," who donned thc tile that thc gods aud
excitement had thrown in his way, and walked
off with it.
AFTER THE ELECTION.
Thc confusion incident to thc delight and dis?
approval manilested by the friends and foes of
Melton continued several miuutcs. and the "joint
assembly" dissolved without a vote being taken
upon the motions made to dissolve. A few or thc
senators withdrew to thc Scuatc chamber. Swails
desired to record his protest against thc recent
election, but before he could do so a motion to ad?
journ was made ami carried. Thc House adjourn?
ed immediately after the Senate retired. After
thc adjournment there were several squabbles,
but none of a serious character, among thc col?
ored members, arising from charges of bribery
being made against the friends of Murray. lu
the lobby Henderson struck Wilder. Several par?
ties rushed to assist either one or tile other or the
contestants; two or three pistols were drawn, and
for several minutes a general row seemed immi?
nent; but thc affair was settled without any one
receiving injury. Uter this there were several
private quarrels, but the main thing hurt was a
live gallon demijohn of whiskey-Its iusides being
guzzled, and its outside demolished.
Judge Melton qualified yesterday afternoon,
and will take his seat on Monday next.
Last night his friends serenaded him. He made
a brier and stirring speech in response.
It is but just lo state that it is the general opin?
ion that Mr. Murray was not aware ot the brib?
ery and corruption iu his behair, If such there
Thc general impression of those who witnessed
the scene yesterday, is that but for the coolness
and determination of Corbin, lhere would hove
been a free light on the floor or the House.
Judge Melton's election gives universal satisfac?
tion to the citizens of Columbia.
KATI FIC ATI ON OF ACTS.
The Speaker of the House of Representatives
attended in the Senate yesterday, when the fol?
lowing acts were duly ratified: To provide for a
general election of county ofllcers; to incorporate

A TRIP IO SAVANNAS.
[FROM AX OCCASIONAL CORRESPONDENT.]
SAVANNAH. February 8.
If thc Charleston and Savannah line of
steamers is generally as successful in its pas.
senger and freight lists as was the. Pilot Boy
last Sunday, that company must bc doing a
paying business, and well do they deserve it,
for the accommodations are very complete,
despite the querulous, hard-to-please Yankee
that almost every trip linds the first scat at the
table and sleeps in the best berth.
The Pilot Boy on Sunday was crowded, and
most ot her passengers were from "Down
East," pleasure seeking, travelling for health,
and nosing around generally. Aboard was
the far-famed Henry Sanford, of whom I
know you must have heard, as he has
figured in every political capacity, from
extreme Radical to fire-eating Democrat.
Well do I remember him os long ago as 1851,
when, as secretary of legation, at Paris, he
refused to vis? my passport, because of some
little technical informality upon ita face. Said
Sanford has been charge (le affaires at Paris.
Berlin and oilier places, government agent
for the nurchnsc ol arms, and general piiblic
plunderer, and withal a purchaser of rice lands
on our coast. And though such a checkered
life should have learned him practical common
sense, he had the insauity to ask me if the
phosphate beds near Charleston did not under?
lie the whole Stale of South Carolina? Herc
is a wise-acre .*?r you.
Harper's Magazine was. too, represented on
the Pilot Boy by a travelling correspondent,
and, strange to say, he had ''done up Charles?
ton," and never heard anything of the phos?
phate deposits. When shall we be kuown by
our friends ?
Arriving at Bcautort, a natty ot us perambu?
lated that once affluent, but; now dilapidated
town, and I was much amused at the excla?
mations of the Yanks. Ono old gentleman re?
marked. "I shouldn't wonder property might
bc bought cheap here; by Jove it'? the nicest
climate and most attractive looking country I
see since I left Boston. "Would bc be a good citi?
zen ? I thought he might, and advised him to
come and settle there. He replied, "I shouldn't
wonder I should." On cur return to thc boat he

and said, "Look here, if I lived here yon know
what Pd do right here? I'd kick every d-d one

wharf.'' That man had told mc he was a work?
ing abolitionist long ago, nnd would now, li nc
were living at the South, be quite as active in
abolishing the race as he had been in abolish?
ing their chains. "Would some power thc

has for his guests.
Savannah is a bustling city, nnd as the bulk
of her exporting trade is done on thc Bay, or
Bay street, which ls very wide and generally
thronged with drays, wagons, ?tc, nn idea of

that of Charleston at" a slpgle glance. This

statistics, reverts to her pecuniary and sub

morning publishes Savannah as I he i hird largest

nearly twenty ahead of heron the subject of
importation. I don't know what a Sam Smith

mind all outgo and no Income is n poor
road to wealth. Thc statistics, however,
are nvich more favorable to Savannah than
Charleston. It strikes mc here, too, these
statistics are export, for the exportations
to the interior irom Charleston arc so
superior to those of most Southern cities, she
should get ci edit for that in the statistical re?
ports. The amount of fertilizers shipped from
Charleston alone must reach from a quarter to
halt million dollars this season, and ls a clear
and independent shipment not peculiar to
other cities. The Yankee element, though, in

richest of black velvets, made with a train,
and the loose Turkish sack "she wore, of the

gold. But this rich trimming was scarcely
more dazzling in effect than her wealth ol'
golden hair, flus hair, which all admit is
natural in quantity as well as in hue, is of that
miraculous color about which painters rave:
and in looking at it any degree of rapture
seems admissible. And in addition, this su?

markable clearness, and a perfect form. Then,
too, the atmosphere of courts is about her, ami
she makes one understand what innate maj?

TUE BEWITCHING BROKERS.
The iVcwFaroro In "The Street1'-First
Levee anil Business Reception of thc
Female Stock Broker?-A Sensation
among thc Panicky "Balls."
In TUE NEWS of Tuesday the opening of
thc offices of thc new female firm of Wood?
hull, Claflin it Co., in Wall street, New York,
was briefly announced. The Herald says :
From carly morning till thc closing of the
business houses in Wall and Broad streets thc
offices of the ladies were besieged with hosts
of visitors, ot whom many were led by curios?
ity; but a large number of business men-thc
members and representatives of tho leading
Arms on tho "street"-called to pay their re?
spects and to form the acquaintance ot the
handsome adventuresses. Tho curiosities of
commerce and bauklng arc more fascinating
than the curiosities of crime; hence the first
banking house opened by lad'es during thc
bustling (?OOO years that have elapsed since
Eve brought misfortune and grief upon her
daughters ls naturally a wonder, nnd not des?
tined to bc a "nine days' wonder."
People of all classes thronged yesterday at
Nb. 44 Broad street. Spinsters, elderly and
sedate, with a large experience of thc world,
but n llb a Uttlc larger oueplclon of its moms
tory transactions, and with longer purses, st ill
come lo learn how they may turn their mon?
ies, which have not practically been bearing
any interest, to the best account. Blondes,
lair and fresh as pippins, entered with a rich
twinkle of humor in their eyes, but bewitched
by curiosity, and afterwards delighted with all
they saw and heard, left the premises bethink?
ing themselves that there were other things to
live for besides cosmetics, tho toilet, fashion
and vanity. Hardy old veterans, who have
been stumping it for a long time on short legs,
took a turn in, but thc atmosphere of thc es?
tablishment did not seem to agree with their
temperament and they left, under the Impres?
sion that it money were to bc made there it
should bc made legitimately. Rankers, with
silver beards and golden memories, rich in thc
perfumes of chnmpagnc and cigars, toddled
through thc premises, but having come to
mock they remained to pray thal the lady
bankers would vouchsafe to note thc members
ol'their linns and lo express a hope that their
acquaintance might be long-lived.
Thc ladles received their visitors with a
coolness and an eye to business that drew
forth tho plaudits and tho curses of old vete?
rans. Every large house in the sliver, went to
take notes of thc movements of thc lionesses.
Hosts of friends, with advanced ideas, put forth
their opinions and proffered their counsels,
and hosts who carno to scolf anti to mock the
gentle lionesses who dared to take a stand in
the most stormy and uncertain arena of lifo,
pressed forward, but thc blandishments and
the opinions of all comers were received with
an amount of dare-devil sell-possession that In?
dicated to "the street'' that Woodhull. Claflin
& Co. appreciated the situation, that they
knew their business, and thal they proposed
to take thc stand like men. and lo meet men
on dollars aud cents, handsome leal m es, gen?
tle features, and a profusion ol' blonde locks
lo the contrary notwithstanding.
They talked of stocks, ol'gold, or C. Vander?
bilt, ami of a thousand other topics, which
showed that (hey were not "strangers in ti
strange land." They insist, on their honor as
ladies, that before three months they will do
thc largest business as bankers and brokers on
the street. They will do a slock brokerage
business on commission; will buy and sell
slocks and carry them on margin, and do a
banking business, paying Av1 per cent, on de?
posits. They claim to bc wealthy-say they
will sink haifa million dollars in tho business
bul arc quite reticent as to the names of their
bankers and supporters. The street talked of
the limiter as Vanderbilt's new move. Some
contemned thc idea, some believed it; but the
question was universally asked, why should
vanderbilt allow his name to be mixed up in
thc matter if he were not an active partici?
pator in thc enterprise ? A September gold
panic could not create a greater furore in the
Stock Exchange than the advent of the lady
There was nothing of the novice in thc man?
ner and movements of the ladies. They were
both dressed In dark blue Empress cloth
walking dresses, and moved around with a
keen and quiet air. They looked handsome,
and the gold pens poised on their pretty cars
formed a topic of unusual interest for thc
gouty old war horses of thc street. In thc
bustle and excitement attendant on an open?
ing of this kind, it speaks well for the onward
sentiments ol'thc age that no unseemly ex?
pression, whether by word or gesture, greet?
ed Hie ears of the visitor, although a miscel?
laneous throng ol'some four thousand persons
called at the oilice yesterday.
Quaint and commonplace remarks were
used lu prolusion, and the air was alive willi
such expressions as "What does Vanderbilt
mean ?" "They knew a thing or two." "When
will this cud!"' "'Two thousand visitors for
two ladles within eight hours." "Stocks
will go sky high." At four o'clock thc
tempest subsided and thc ladies drove away in
their coupe, without any signs ol headache, to
their apartments In the Hoffman House.

^ST-WHAT DOES REASON SAY?
The little mongoose when bitten by a deadly ser?
pent resorts to a certain plant, eats of lt, aud es?
capes the effect of the poison. That is instinct.
Human beings, on thc other hand, must depend
on reason and experience in selecting the means
of protecting health and life against unwhole?
some influences. Now, what does reson say on
this vital subject? Does it not tells us that to In?
vigorate and purify the system Is the best way to
protect lt against the invisible poison which
generates disease? .Surely it does. The next
question ls, what guide shall we follow In choos?
ing a medicinal safeguard ? Reason replies, let
your monitor be experience. Well, the experi?
ence of eighteen years comprised In one unbroken
series of satisfactory testimonials assures us that
HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BITTERS posessaa
strengthening, regulating and antiseptic proper?
ties which are not combined in the same happy
proportions m any other preparation extant.
This, therefore, ls the antidote to which reason
bids us resort when our health ls imperilled
either by the malaria which produces epidemic
disorders, or by any other cause, whether inhe?
rent and constitutional, or connected with our
habits, occupations and pursuits.
Thc venom of noxious reptiles ls scarcely more
subtle and dangerous than that which larks In
foul air and impure water. To escape the fevers,
bilious disorders, disturbances of the bowels and
other serious maladies produced by these Insalu?
brious elements, it is absolutely necessary that
the stomach and all the secretive or ms should
bc, so to speak, in a robust condition. Upon the
amount of resistance which the vital system can
oppose to the deleterious influences that assail lt,
the safety of the health depends, and it ls because
the GREAT VEGETABLE i N vu; OR ANT imparts energy
and regularity to thc most Important functions
of the body, that it can be recommended and
guaranteed as an invaluable preventive medi?
