[FROST OCR OWN CORRESPONDENT.]
COLUMBIA, Tuesday, February 2?.
The Senate and House, but more especially
the former, went to work in real earnest to-day,
and disposed of considerate business. The first
matter under consideration a'ter prayer and roll
call was thejolnt resolution relative to adjourning
on the ist 3: Match. lu the Uonse, Tomm intro?
duced a concurrent resolution to r-?scind the
joint resolution, and TO continue in session until
the 7th of March. Jones moved to lay fee resolu?
tion on the table, and Yocum called t?ie previous
question. The motion to lay on the table was
lost by a vote of 45 to 45, and the concurrent.res
olution then adopted by a vote of 53 to 42. On
reading lt In the Senate, nay ne moved that the
resolution be Indefinitely postponed. Whittemore
declared rhat the Senate was not responsible for
the required extension of time. It had not been the
intention of theHoase to adjourn-they had triced
wi?h the Senate in withholding the appropriation
bn?^untlll the eleventh hour, aud concluded:
"Why should we stay i.-;re to help railroad job?
bers who contlnua'ly assail our ears to lead u9
astray to rob the State ? I shad vote, for Mr.
Hayne's motion, be anse 1 deem it my duty."
Smart favored the motion, and Nash said, that if
lt was their duty to stay, they should do so, Inde?
pendent of- what the public might say. Leslie
thought If the wishes of the people had been con?
sulted, none of ihem would be there. Havne.
daring his remark?, tock the Reform.senators to
task for aiding in the postponement of adjourn?
ing, by allowing the renate to adjourn on the
evnlng previous without doini; any business. On
a call ol the ayes and nays, the Senate concurred
m the r?solution by a vote of 17 to 14. On mot on
of Whit'?nore, a motion to reconsider was Indefi?
nitely postponed by a vote or 24 to 5. This pre?
cludes all further attempts to extend the time
after the 7th.
THE GREENVILLE RAILROAD IN THE SENATE.
The bill to swln 'ie the Srate out of two millions
of dollars for the benetlt of a few "Jobbers" con?
nected with the Greenville and Cslambla Rail?
road, came up ia the Seiate to-day and received
a Href,reading. Whittemore rose to a question of
privilege, and asked the president whether, lu
Sis opinion, the House had passed the bill consti?
tu? lonally.having passed it by a two-thirds vote of
the members present, iustead of two-third.-, of ah
the members, as he thought was required by the
constitution. . -i
The chair said that while lt wa* not competent
for him to review the actlon.of the House in their
vote upon this bill, he would give tbesenatnr and
to the Senate the opinion asked for. He be?
lieved that where the constitution requires a two
thirds vote on any measure, the number neces- '
sary to c. nstituie that vote must be two thirds of
the representation provided for In the constitu?
tion-eighty-four In the House and twenty-two in,
the Senate. He gave this opinion because it was
asked for, and wished it understood that he was
not sitting In judgment, on the action of the
House, i here might be doubts as to the legality
of bis opinion, but he would give the benefits of
his doubts against the passage of the bill, which
he regarded injurious to the creditor the Srate,
an<L?elther sanctioned by public opinion nor
called for by pnbllc or private necessity.
Whittemore then moved that, inasmuch as sach
a belier existed, the matter be referred to the at?
torney-general for his opinion as to the constitu?
tionality of the action of the House. Allen ob?
jected. Leslie said lt was merely a strike to
blacken the MIL [Why this sudden change?
Nash thought Chamberlain's opinion was of
little valne, as the Senate would act Independent
of lt anyhow. Leslie again rose, and severely'
criticised Ransier's remarks, and declared it had
been an arranged plan, between the latter and
the Governor, to deliver t-uch au opinion. Whit?
temore defended the president, who had been ab?
sent from the chamber during Leslie's remarks,
and said it was unkfhd of Leslie to dispose of
him In the way he did during his absence.
Leslie. Were you not aware when you asked
the qnestion what answer he would give you 1
And let me teU you that you had no right to
Whittemore. Me and you are not In the same
Sabb?th-sciiool. and I have a right to ask any
question 1 please. I, however, withdraw my mo?
tion to refer to the attorney-general.
Leslie. You have accomplished your object.

THE BL?S RIDGE RAILROAD BONOS.
The bill to repeal an act to authorize additional
aid to the Blue Ridge Railroad came up for third
reading to-day. On the question of the passage
or the bill, "Hayne moved to lay the bill over till
to-morrow, which was. on a call of the ayes and
nays, lost. 'Sundry amendments were then otter?
ed, and a lively discussion ensued between seve-.
ral of the senators. While the debate w?s In pro-!
gress Gaillard seut to the president's desk a pro- ;
test from the Mayor and Aldermen, on behalf of
the citizens of Charleston, against the passage of
the bill, which was read. The amendments offer?
ed were finally adopted, but when it came to the
mainquestion.it rtqulrlng a two-thirds vote to
pass the bill, there were only nineteen fer it and
tenifitaiust it, hence the bili did not pass.
The House bill to raise supplies and to make

President Thiers Las issued a proclamation
to tbe people o.r Paris. Ee appeals to their
patriotism and wisdom for trie preservationyof

surrender of the forts, and obliged the govern?
ment to open negotiations. They were only able
tn obtain an extension or the armistice by con?
senting to the partial occupation ?f Paris. The
French army will occupy the lt. oank of the

An order of the dey, by Vinoy, says the-gov
ernment unhesitatingly confides to the National
Guard the care of the city, and trusts to their de?
votion and intelligence for the maintenance of
order. The least agitation wiil furnish a pretext
for irreparable misfortune, walch only calmness
and dignity can avert.
The proclamation of Thiers and the order of
vinoy produced a good impression in Paris, but
military precautions have been taken to prevent
disorder. The Eleventh Prussian Corps and the
Bavarians will enter Paris to-day.
Belgium has recognized the French Republic.
' Special dispatches from Parl3 to London say the
city 13 very disturbed. Serious occurrences are
apprehended. Delegates from the National
Guard held a meeting and resolved to resist the
entrace or the Germans ? Voutrar.ce. A meeting
of fifteen hundred National Guards determined to
attack the Hotel de Ville on Tuesday morning.
The attack failed from want of organization. The
troops retreated to Place Bastlle. Sympathy
with resistance is extending. Vinoy wiil not in?
terfere, but will withdraw his army.
The Journal des D?bats comments on the
cruel terms of peace Imposed on France, and
says: Thiers'and Favre were several times on the
point or breaking off tho negotiation- at the risk
or tire resumption of hostilities, and yielded only
to dire necessity. Bismarck at first demanded
ten milliards indemnity! and lt was redoced to
the sum finally agreed upon only by the most
strenuous eflorts. It has been stipulated that
only thirty thousand Germans shall enter Paris,
and they shall not march beyond the Place dc la
Concorde. Several-journals announce that they
will suspend publication during the occupa'lon of
the etty, and all recommend thc inhabitants to re?
main within doors, and close their shutters. Thc
authorities are very uneasy in regard ta the ari
tade of the population, when the Prussians march

all night, and order has prevailed, but the guards
and regular troops are greatly discontented, and

The occupation of the departments south of the
Seine ceases after the ratification of the treaty,

might not Bowen rise any day to a question of
privil'-gc, and, laving his hand ou his waistcoat,
look up io the gallery and say, "I have a reeling.
Mr. Speaker, that I am married, more or less, to
half thar gallery, and I should like to have it
cleared." such a man as Bowen draws too mam*
visitors to the gallery. There must bes?me other
Hphereof life In which his attractions would In?
terfere less with the public weirare.
We are not seeking, by mentioning thia mitigat?
ing circumstance of this fascination to deieud
Mr. Bowen in bigamy, H he has committed lr, or
even in polygamy, if he has attempted to prac?
tice that without Its accompanying religion, Tor
we have no opinion or an unrellglous bigamist or
polygamist; but what we desire to inquire Is, if
Mr. Bowen was a bigamist, why sh mid be desire
to be a member of Congress also ? If he had led
a lire that would render hie old age liable to suits
by various women for the possession or his tem?
poral rrame, what the world recognizes as the
outward and viaiblc Bowen. tr\\y sJiould he get
Into sucha conspicuous place tor tue exhioliiou
or his penitence as the House of Representatives f
Did he imagiue that lt is a kind of pillar of St.
Simon ? We should,1 however, be disposed
to leave Bowen, B. G., to the law and
Bowen, M. C., to legislation ; but he
appears now in a new character, >o which our at?
tention ls called. The present Mrs. Bowen writes
to the newspapers in deprecation or the persecu?
tion or her husband, who ls described aa thor?
oughly repentant or the past, and. let us hope,
anxious about the rut ure. "He had been an or
phad boy without relations or Mends, had drifted
Into- Hie company of gamblers and prostitutes,
and had lived their life until it pleased the good
God to lift him from thc mire, aud stir wlthiu-hlm
the spirtr or reformation and purification." it is
no discredit to a person to beau orphan, unless it
ls by his own fault, like the unfortunate French?
man who murdered his father and mother, and
, then pleaded orphanage in mitigation of his sen
! tence; but there ts nothing in the constitution of
our country encouraging one to be on orphan, a
bigamist; and a member of Congress at the same
tim-. We aie Informed, also, that when he last
married, lt was with a firm resolve to lead a tem?
perate, studious and honorable life. For months
he has adhered to this resoluUon, we also
read, and yet he continues to be perse?
cuted by prosecutions, just as ir he had not re?
pented. We exceedingly regret that Mr. Bowen
had a bad start in the world, and that he has
nulli lately led a disgraceful life; and .we rejoice
that he is resolved upon reformation-even If. we
were abont to say, it costs him half his wives.
But we remember i hat it ls the plurality of wives
that ls the very thing lu question. We sincerely
deprecate persecution of one repentant, lu ail
kindness, we should say. Go, Bowen, and sin no
more. Bat don't go to Congress. Sit down In
some inconspicuous place for a while, and grow
in grace and In the knowledge of monogamy, be?
fore you appear upon a large stage of action and
Haunt your penitence. It ls a credit to you that
vou have left the "company o? gamblers and pros?
titutes," but it is no recommendation to Congress
that you were in that company so receutly.
'Realty, Congress ls not a house or refuge, nor a
reform school, nor a Magdalen asylum for men
however much lt may have tiat appearance at
Let us not get confuse 1. It ls still, even In this
world or complex relations and natural selections,
better to have married one woman at a Hine, than
to have married tour simultaneously, and to have
repented or three of the marriages. Ari outraged
law will exact Its penalty one woy or another, and
no penitence can altogether stay lt. This ls an era
of rattier soft 8,-rapithy for crimin?is, and we
never feel like rebuking lt when the criminal ls
modest and is anxious to make neither his sins
nor his recantation too conspicuous. We must
try, however, to preserve a place in the HouBe of
Representatives Tor those or anassumlng virtues.
All cannot have the advantages or Bowen ror
making a record so bad that penitence over it
will be a recommendation to Congress. Bowen
may say, and he doubtless does, and has a right
to console himself with lt, that there is more joy
ta Heaven over one repentant sinner than over
ninety and nine that never went astray. But
Congress ls not Heaven. And we can say to Mr.
Bowen, in the present complication or his affairs,
as Sergeant Bnzfnz said to Mr. Pickwick, "it
would have been more decent In him, more be?
coming, in better Judgment, and in better taste,
if he had stopped away."
-Tiie Hon. William H. Seward held a public r??
ception at the American consulate, in Hong
'Kong, in January, during which he kept his seat
on account- omis infirmity. Being introduced by
Consul Balley he made quite a Tong speech, in
which he prophesied the spread of civilization
through the iuflueuce or itu commerce of Am- ri
ca, "commerce across th; Pacific ocean, com?
merce by steam across the American continent,
and across the Atlantic ocean. Chinese emigra?
tion to the American continent will tend to In?
crease the wealth and strength of all Western
nations; Wh'le at the same time, the removal of
the surplus population of China will tend much
to take away the obstructions which now Impede
the Introduction Into China of art, science, mo
l all ty and religion."
How She wai Relieved hy the British
Authorities at Nassau.
From a late issue of the Nassau, N. P., Guar?
dian we take the following:
On Sunday morning last, the United States
Consul received a letter from Cuptain Quacken
bush, of the United States uaw, reporting that
the Pawnee, a vessel under his command, was
lying In a dangerous position to the south?
ward of Stirrup's Cay Light. The letter was writ
ten undfr the supposition that i here might be an
American frlgate.tn Bahamian waters. The con?
sul immediately waited upon his Excellency the
Governor and represented the circumstances of
thc case. The services of. tho Philomel were im?
mediately placed at the disposal of the Americans,
and Captain Douglas Walker, (a brother of H. B.
M.'B Consul at Charleston.) at 2 o'clock leJt the
harbor, having on board the the consul, F. C.
Whitehouse,. Esq.. (the captain's guest,) and a
pilot. At sunset they sighted Berry Islands, the
object of their search, and anchored seven miles
from them In eleven fathoms w.iter. The night
?was bright, but there wa9 scarcely light enough
to show, lu ail her ugliness, this extraordi?
nary vessel. Oa boarding her", however, her im?
mense height, find low and strangely-placed spars,
were at once explained. Having done itood duty
la cutting out blockake-ruuners, and in rive.
work, the United States naval authorities re?
moved lier engines, and couverte! her Into a
hospital ship. The huge deck which had been
put over an, gave her a broadside of sixteen feet,
while her draft was eight forward and nine
aft. Three false keels had been added to give
her some steadiness, with the valu expectation of
reducing her lee-way. The oiric ra and crew of a
hundred and twenty, made up In comfort what,
they lacked In speed. Two ladles also enjoyed
the hospitalities of the spacious ward?
room, where the captain and officers
messed; and If, after dinner, there was no
dancing, it was not f>r want of a larger
space than any roora In the Royal Victoria Hotel
affords. Thc history of the Pawnee cruise waB
briefly told. Starting from Portsmouth, (N. H.,)
accompanied by the severn, she had drifted down
to Norfolk. Emboldened by this success, the
Navy Department ordered her to proceed alone to
Key West; but having got unfortunately to the
southward of Stirrup's Cay, and being In sound?
ings, they anchored on Friday night, and were
spokeB next morning by the Minx. ' The Philomel
proceeded at once to seud on board a chain haw?
ser, receiving from thc Pawnee a seven-inch
cable, aud lu the shortest possible time started
anead about four knots northwards. At 4 o'clock,
being nine miles from Stirrup's Cay. the towline
was cast off, and she immediately anchored
to await h breeze. . Furnished with the pilot
from the Philomel, and a course lani down
for her by the captain and navigating officer, '
Lieutenant Hire, there- is fair reason to ex?
pect that she may ride safely across the
(.Teat Bahama Bauk; aud, taking a fresh de?
parture from Salt (.'av Bunk, under the united
action of the Gulf Stream and the customary >'. E.
winds, be able to make Key West, it Is scarce] v
fhepruvince of a British newspaper to comment
upon the short-comings of a foreign admiralty;
still there ls something' requiring explanation tn
the sending of a ship, wltti valuable lives,.to sea
under such circumstances without a steam
On her return to port, the Philomel received
orders from the admiral to remain at Nassau
nntll relieved. The officers of this vessel have
made themselves so popular during the time they
have been on this station, that we trust the relief
may be long In comlug.
-Washington specials say that Boutwell'a last
card-the new loan-does not bid fair to prove a
trump. No offers have yet been* made, and the
foreign baukers of New York are generally of the
opiuion that the loan will not ba taken In Eu?
rope, because all Its money ls needed to repair
war losses, and because no financial policy ls set
down by Mr. Boutwell, who simply asks present
holders of six per cents, to exctuuige them for
five per cents., having no other guarantees than
the six per cents., and subject always to the ca?
price or any future Congress.
-The Department of Agriculture has received
Irs "rat Instalment of thc vegetable products of
St. Domingo, which will make interesting addi?
tions to its already extensive herbarium and at?
tractive museum. The adaptability of the climate
to the growth of the cinchona, which furnishes
thc quinine of commerce, ls refer.ed to with
satisfaction by Dr. Parry, the botanist of the ex?
pedition, In a letter to tbe department accom?
panying the different vegetable specimens. These
specimens Include dried plants, native fibre-,
cordage, commercial woods, Ac. The fibre called
kamote yields enormously. Dr. Parry says the
woods of the country are numerous, and he ls
satisfied they will constitute a great source of
