INTERESTING GLEANINGS FROM THE
The English. Marriage Law,
The Legislature at Victoria; Ausir&lia, has
passed a bill for legalizing a man's marriage
with his deceased wile's Mtier. The bill
awaits tho signature ol the Queen, and, a?
thia ls not the first time that a British colony
has asked lor and received the royal assent
to a bill ot thia descrlpiion, there ls little
doubt that the un-Levitlcal Australians will
ha& their wishes granted, and thus be able
to repeat their own mother-in-law.
A R?markabIo Book.
The biggest, and perhaps the oddest book
which has ever been "constructed," Is Just
now in process of building In Paris. It Is the
book which shall contain the names of those
Inhabitants of Alsace and Lorraine who have
now formally proclaimed their wish to remain
French subjects. The book will possess a
certain historical, or at ?east Genealogical in?
terest. Thelist ls said to comprise three hun?
dred and eighty thousand carnes. The Patrie
states that one hundred and twenty-five com?
positors have been employed on the work for
the last three mouths, that lt is being piloted
on seven presses, and that it will form a vol?

Itinerant songster ls Jules Beaumeoter, who

more capable of giving than half the people

? Corner in Hat?.
Since the order issued by the Japanese Gov?
ernment requiring the natives to t ut off their
queues Yokohama ls said to present the ap?
pearance of being inhabited by priests, with
only a few weeks' crop of hair on their skulls.
Sev-ral cunning speculators, as Boon as the
order was issued, bought up all tue bats In
the city, and the price of head coverings rose
greatly in consequence. All the orders sent
to Kobe nod O-mka could not be Ailed, nor
would they supply the demand If they were.
Uany new orders for hats from Europe and
America have been the consequence. The
hat stores In these countries will doubtless
ship their old slock to Jap tn, and, though
the bat famine will be relieved, yet the pro?
spective flood of all manner of horribly un?
fashionable toggery for the head Is regarded
os something appalling io tblok ol.

In Improving the harbor may be formed from
the fact thai a breakwater ls In process of
construction, to be when completed a mlle In

Btooes. This breakwater will et close a harbor
with a superficial area of fifteen hundred
acres, nowhere of a less depth than thirty
f?et. In ihe midst of ihe grand canal a com?
pany of English engineers is at work blasting
ont rocks, and employs constantly about two
thousand men and forty steam engines. In

A fellow who has beeu shaved lo China Bays
tho barber first Btrapped the razor on his leg,
and then did the shaving without any lather.
The customer remonstrated, but was told that
the lather was entirely useless, and had a ten?
dency to make the hair stiff and lough, and
was, therefore, netrer used by persons who
had any knowledge ol the face and Its ap?
pendages. After the beard had been taken
off-and lt was done in a very short lime-the
barber , look a long, sharp, needle-beaded
spoon and begun to explore the customer's
ear. Then the barber suddenly twisted his
subject's neck to one side In such a manner
that lt cracked as If the vertebres had been
dislocated- "Hold on 1" shouted ihe party,
alarmed for the safety of his neck. "AH
right," replied Ihe tonsor; "me no hurt you;"
and he continued to Jerk and twist ihe bead
until lt was as Umber as an old lady's nish rag.
He then fell to bealing t e back, breast, arms
and sides-with his fists, then he pummelled
the muscles till they fairly glowed with the
beating, they .received. He then dashed a
bucket of cold water over his man, dried his
skin with towels, and declared thai his work
was done. Price two cents.
? Justice'* Juatieo."
There ls a kind of English Justice which the
London papers are in ihe habit ot calling
"Justice's Justice." It ls that sort of j is ti ce
which Is now and then meted ont by the
jaunty magistrales-who are not lawyers, but
local magnates-to the offendlug poor of their
neighborhoods. The county magistrate is
above all a personage wno considers lt his
first and sacred duty to protect the property
Ol'the rlob. A oase occurred recently at Lui
terworib, Illustrative of this trail aod of "Jus?
tice's Justice" in general. The three magis?
trates who sit on the Linter worth bench are
nil Church of England clergymen, and on the
occasion referred to an old woman between
seventy and eighty years of age was brought
before ibero, charged by a policeman with
having "malPiously done damage to a hedge
lenoe to the amount of one penny." The old
woman was deaf and could not hear the evi?
dence; but In answer to the charge said meek?
ly that she bad merely broken off a piece of
dead wood from the hedge with her foot. The
reverend Judges thereupon sentenced her to
about one pound fine and costs or suffer a
week's Imprisonment, knowing well enough,
ns It appears, lhat the poor old dame was
on the parish, and would, of course, have to
go to Jail. Aud that la "Jumice's Justice."
Atarr/lng a Moor.
The Gibraltar Cnrouicie gives an account of
a marriage ceremony recently witnessed in
Tangier, the bridegroom being his highness
the sheriff of Gtiazan, a lineal descendant of
Mahomet, and the bride MISB Keen, an Eng?
lish Christian indy, for eome lime resident in
Morocco. The bride rode to the Bril lsh consu?
late on an Arab horse covered with a scarlet
saddlecloth embroidered with gold, and was
there presented by the bridegroom to Slr
^John Hay Drummond, who officiated at the
marriage ooremoBj. After the usual rites
had been performed the wedded pair rode
back to their hotel, where a sumptuous ban?
quet was held, tho consulate body and other
distinguished officers ol Hie government being
present In rf gal array. The bridegroom was
arrayed in a flowing Eastern dress ot dark
blue, and was attended by a guard of Moorish
soldiers. The lestlviiles were kept up until
late into the evening, aud at the conclusion of
the ceremonies ihe happy couple were driven
to the country house ol t::e sheriff. The
bridegroom is a personage of the greatest Im?
portance In Morocco, and won an enviable dls
] i action throughout the country during the
war with Spain. By ber marriage to a Mo?
hammedan Mies Keen forfeits the protection ot
the English law and becomes one of the four
wives of her husband.
A Strange Romance.
The husband ot the celebrated stager, Ma?
dame BOF?O, has Just died. He was a Greek
named Xindavelools, and M. Frederic Galllau
det, In the Courier des Etats Unis, gives a
short summary of the romantic and ead story
of bis marriage. Angelina BOH?O was In the
midst of a successful career as a sbger, when
io Copenhaprea she met a handsome Spaniard,
and, though warned that he was a mat? ol bad
character, married him. Il was not lODg be?
fore, after retiring to her dressing-room one
evening after singing, she was confr?nted by
a former wife of the man she matried. A
separation, ol course, was Inevitable. The
singer gave herself up to despair. Xiudave
lonis was then in ber service as courier, facto?
tum, general agent. His heart was touched;
he was wretched; he rushed into the presence
of his mUtress. "Madame, I love you !" She
refused, but reflected. She Anally accepted
bim as the guardian of her unborn child.
They were to be to eacb other brother and
sister only, however, throughout life. Xlnda
velonls thought that his love would change
this hard coalition in time, but it never did.
And La HOMO led him a life; ehe came to dis?
like him, thought he was laying by, out ol her
earnings, a sum for a rainy day, as he proba?
bly was; came at last very neal seeking a di?
vorce from him. Xmdavelonlswalled. lishe
bad the scratching propensities ol the cat, he
bad the patience ol the dog. Al last she died,
and Xmdavelonls erected a superb mausoleum
over ber, and spent her money freely, and
now bas died himself.

King Cotton and tbe Government-The
Wife of a Late Citizen of Savannah
Mrs. McDaniel, the widow ol a deceased
citizen of Savannah., ls at present living In
Atlanta, having gone lhere after her hus?
band's death. She had formerly been In
easy circumstances, but the rev. rses of the
wir lelt her husband poor, nod bis death
shortly after Its close only rendered ber con?
dition worse. She went to Atlanta, where
she has since earned a support with her needle
by unremitting Industry. But In the midst of
her troubles and trials she recently became
the possessor of the snug little sum of
HOW IT CAME ABOUT
ls thus related by the Atlanta pupers: During
the war Mr. McDaniel purciiused a large
amount ol cotton aud stored it in or near the
cliy When S wannah was taken possession
of by the Yankees, thia colton was taken In
the name of the Government of the United
Slates an i confiscated. Belore and during inn
war Mr. McDaniel was a man In affinem elf?
cumeiunces, but, like thousands ot oitiers, m?.
close ot the war found bim reduced lo pov?
erty, and shortly allerwaros he died, ana his
widow went to Atlanta, as above slated. The
Sun says that, by advice, she was Induced to
put In a claim at Washington for the cotton
belonging to her husband, and the services of
lacers al tne seat ot government were pro?
cured to prosecute the claim. Mrs. McDaniel
did cot sit down and wail for the issue of ihe
suit, but, ns state' went to work to earn un
honest living. Some days ago ber lawyers at
Washington telegraphed her to come on and
net the money, us the claim hud been granted.
She Immediately repaired lo ibal elly, and on
Monday last reiurued to Atlanta, bringing
nluety-dve thousand dollars in greenbacks.
Mrs. McDaniel has been employed recently In
a sewing machine office, on Marietta street,
and while lhere made up most of the cos?
tumes worn by "Tne Twelfth Night Revellers"
on ihe occasion of their recent carnival.

Yesterday morning about seven o'clock, fire
was discovered In the cargo on board ihe nark
Queco, tjlng ai Ty nee loaned with lumber and
sound for Callao. The discovery was made by
?betlrst mate, In ibo lord part of ihe vessel,
who strenuously endeavored to extinguish ihe

and lt is difficult to Imagine how lt occurred,
as lhere n as no fire anywhere In ihe viciolty
ot the vessel when it was discovered. We are
[normed that it Is impossible to tell the les
until the lumber is taken'out. Tne cargo w*?s
furnished by Messrs. F. W. Sims & Co., of this
city, and ls partially Insured lu some New

[Correspondence of the New York Sun.]
READINQ, Pa., January 23
Your correspondent again caled oo
aeronaut, Washington B. Donaldson, jester
day, to ascertain bow far he had progressed
in the construction ot bis gigantic mr shi
the "North America," which is to carry hi
either aerees the ocean or to the bottom of
during the coming summer. Before sending
my name to hl9 quarters, I Inquired ol severa
prominent gentlemen of this city about th
character ol this daring young aeronaut, and
In every case was Informed that he waa
exemplary citizen of good character, sober
and industrious. Reaching his apart men
the whole surroundings were Indicative of the
aeronaut. Scattered in prolusion around the
room were modeis and Instruments o? various
descriptions. Barometers, anchors, baskets
bars, books, cords, canvas sails, miniature
balloons, gas generators and all the various
articles used in his varied experiments and
"You see," said the aeronaut, "I'm over m
ears in this affair; aud ll will claim every m
meut ot rn v attention from now ou until July
in order tb have things perfectly arranged,

sketcties for my snip, and I am absolutely
certain that what I am now perfecting w

"What Is this ?"' asked your correspondent
pointing to a miniature balloon filled with

shall first ascend, and then I shall open my
patent parachute (the model of which looks
for all the world like three lamp shades strim

bait a mlle high will be a novelty, and a change
ol cars, as lt were, at that altitude will also be
something new lor the sensational people of
this fast age. But this hus nothing to do with
crossing the ocean."
Donaldson then produced a series ot dla
grams and drawings of hi* proposed mammoth
air ship. He proposes to have one large bal
loon which will have sufficient power io sue
cesBlully carry him through the trip. But I
be more than safe In the matter he will cai ry
with him two other supply or smaller balloon
With these he says he can Dil the larger bal
loon in case of fi IOSH or escape by leakage or
condensing, and when ihey ure empty he pro
poses to pack them up, label them, and toss
them Into the ocean, which will relieve the
ship ol two hundred and filly pounds weigh
During the day Ihe fluatlug power ol the gas
diminishes at the rate ol about twenty-five
pounds per hour; but at night the to-B IS
grealer, through condensation. This loss
however, ls equaliz-d by exptnMon when day
comes again. If li should rain or be u damp

The following are the dimensions of the
great balloon. It ls to be 89 feet In diameter
with a capacity of 268.000 feet ol gas. To con

require 374 yards of material, with a capacity
ol 28.000 cub.c teet, and a lining power ot 980
pounds. The weight of ihe two supply bat
loons, netting*, Ac, will be 280 pound-). A
small badoon to eave ga9 as lt expands will

A TRIP AROUND THE WORLD,
or for a month al least After ihe above re
capitulation, Donaldson tal Jr.,
.'Judging from my trips on land. I travel
from twenty lo one hundaed and tiny miles
per hour, so to cross the Atlantic from New
York to the coast of Irelaud, which is the di
rection of the current, distance iwo thousand
six hundred miles, it will require to make ihe
trip from seventeen boura to two daj s and a
half. Bul lo provide for all delays, I shall be
cautious and prepare ?or a much longer time
say thirty days. I know or two caaes where
a single balloon travelled hall the above dis?
tance without any previous preparation. I
shall take iwo passengers wini me; scientific
men, u they can be Induced lo acoompany me
There Is much to be discovered in the clouds
and published to ibe world, and I know of on
thlog so extremely undeveloped as the science
of aerial navigation. We shall at no I ale day
have regular balloon or uerlal ship lines io

reason for taking BUCH precauilou In Hie
preparation of my ship is ts be, ubsolule

have provided lor every thlog uerouauis or

Your correspondent then asked Donaldson
what good could result from the irip, even if
he were successful.
The aeronaut replied: "limy trio ls suc?

ney. I will

just to show the people lt can be done, and If

In reply to a question as to who would ac?
company him, Donaldson smiled, and proceed?
ing io his deBk brought forward twenly-ihree
letters, received from all patts of the country,
principally trum ambitious young men who
desire to cross the Atlantic with him. Nearly
every letter commences In this way: " Prot.
Donaldson-Having read In the Sun thal you
are about crossing," Ac. Thirteen came from
journaliste ol Boston, New York, Baltimore
? and Philadelphia. Three were from ambitions
novells:?, who desired to write books.
A YOONG LADY FROM JERSEY CITY
offered her services, saying ff ohe cr.uld not be
a Joan of Arc she como be the first woman to
cross the ocean in a balloon. Pour applicants
wanted to go vpry bad. because they ihonght
piles of money could be ma*le lecturing aller
the trip. The remaining Iwo letters came
from putent medicine houses, who desire to
negotiate with the professor for some sort or
advertising. All of these loiters appear to be
wrlnen in earnestness. One correspondent
offers five hundred dollars f?r a chance lo go,
while another pictures a bright fortune lor
both if he san accompany ibe aeronaut across.
Among the Journalists are several connected
with ihe leading newspapers ol the country,
tvery m jil is bringing in letters offerlog the
services of ihe wrmers for a passage lo Eu?
rope; but as Donaldson does not desire (o ne?
gotiate with any one at the present lime other
than men of science, correspondents will find
I heir letters remaining unanswered. Bis
final arrangements are to be completed in
New York City, from which point be proposes
Aside from his absolute and determined In?
tention of cros-ing the ocean, I find him a
gentleman ol reckless daring. He never pos?
sessed lear or a consciousness of danger.
Look inc over a scrap book Krat contains news?
paper clippings, I find thal he baa actually
doue more than ihe people are aware ot. At
one place, the news article states that Don?
aldson aciually hung by his teeth lo the hire
trapeze bar when a half mlle high, which
shows that ihe witness ot Ibe feat must have
been possessed ol remarkable eyesight.
Another notice graphically desert'tes him as
banging with ono foot io the bar while a mlle
high; whllH still another tells ol his falling
backward from a sitting posiiion and catching
himself by hts loes and hanging there, when
over iwo thousand leet above the earl h.
Donaldson does not use tobacco in any shape
or lorm, nor intoxicating or malt liquors.
This, he says, accounts for his nerve and
His ocean trip will ba positively made dur?
ing ihe calm monibs of me next summer, aod
three people will c institute his crew. The
upper or eastern current, he says, was cre?
ated for aerial navigation. Tbe existence of
a reiurning current', blowing Irom east to
west, Donaldson ls positive ol finding.
The consiriiction ol the balloons, according
to carefully prepared plans uni sp?cifications,
will be shortly begun under Donaldson's direct
supervision, and li will not be many months
belora the great air ship, North America, will
start for ihe O d Wuild. It. ls ibe subject of

AN AWFUL DISASTER.
SINKING OF A STEAMER IN THE SA
YANN AH RIVER
The Light Draft Steamer Charles S.
Hardee and her Cargo a Total Loas
Five Men Washed Overboard and
Savannah, Just at into time, eeems to be
passing through an epidemic ol disaster. Her
papers have ior a week past been filled with
accounts ol disastrous conflagrations with loss
of life and serious personal Injury, fulcldes,
robberies and cutting affrays, and now, to
swell the Hst, we have to add the loss or the
steamer Charlea S. Hardee and the drowning
ol five of ber crew. The loi lo wing are the
facts of the catastrophe:
Tho steamer Charles S. Hardee, commanded
by Cd piala Miller, left her wharl In havannah
on Tuesday night, with a larg* cargo of as?
sorted merchandise, lor Hawktnsville and the
Intermediate landings; she proceeded down
the river about three miles when the dense
fog prevented her going any further, and she
anchored some distance below Fig Island.
The heavy freshet caused a big rise In the
river, and the steamer drifted some distance
from her anchorage. Thia was not noticed by
ihe officers, and in about an hour alter she
laid to the fog cleared away, and the com?
mand was given to proceed. Anderson New
same, a colored pilot of long experience,
was at the wheel, and he states that just
below Fort JdCkBOD, about a quarter ot a ml e,
while making for St. Augustine Creek, the
steamer moving at a speed of perhaps five
or six miles per hour, struck some unknown
obstruction under waier. This snag or wreck
was out ot the regular channel, bul the steam
er had sheered in shore slightly, Intending to
pass the schooner Odd -eilow, anchored be?
low. The bow of the Hardee was stove In
below the water line by the collision, and,
hardly before the offlojrsor crew could realize
lt, she had sunk so rapidly ibat the water was
rush li g over ihe lower deck. Every one
m-ide a grand rush lor the upper decks, as lt
was found Impossible lo get out a boat. Io
less thun three mluutea irom the lime she
struck, ihe HiMee- rested on the bottom.
The captain managed to save the books, and
the crew a good portion ol clothlug and
bedding. Ai Hie steamer settled down
In her watery grave, ihe cfflcerj, crew
and one passenger gathered on tno up?
per deck, which broke away from the
"luncheons which held it. It was up?
lifted and torn away by ihe pressure ol the
water underneath, and to this lact may be au
tributed the salvation of those who souzbt
reiuge on it. The stampede lo the ur per
works was so general, and the foundering ot
the steamer so awfully Budden, that Ave men
never reached ihe deck and are still missing.
They went down with ihn steamer, beyond a
donor. Their names are : Peter Dunn, second
engineer, white; Wm. Pardu-', watchman,
white; Henry Jackson, fireman, colored; Nel?
son Frail, oller, colored; Henry Love, deck?
hand, colored. The crew and officers num?
bered twenty men. of whom all were saved
except ihe above. Toe first four men resided
In Savannah and the latter In Hawklnsvllie.
Neither of me white meu had families, l'ardue
being a brother of ihe englneer.Echard Pardue.
The latter had a narrow escape. He remained
at bis post unill waist deep, and finally
reach -d ihe upper deck lu such an exhausted
conultlun that he had to he puiied up by those
above, ihe upper deck, torn away, d ri l ted
down with the tide, bearing Its living freight,
and tooled the schooner Odd Fellow, tearing
away her anchor, and chain, which were lost.
The schooner and deck hung together, and
both drilled down tho river ai the mercy of
the Dde. Lines were thrown out to the meu
on the deck, and they scrambled on board the
schooner, widen finally brought up against the
crlb-ralelng macnloes at the obstruction, a
mlle or more below. Here she was made last,
and as soon us possible ihe parlies on board
ol her were brought io Savannah. The Har?
dee uow iles eollrely under water,
only the Btaocneons which held the
upper works remaining In Bight. A large
amount of ihe cargo drilled away, und
the men la thal nelgnborhood were busy
picking Itup lu all directions jesterduy. The
cargo will, of course, prove a total los*, aa we
understand none ot lt was insured. This will
fall mostly upon those In whom it was con?
signed. Tue agent, air. RiberiErwin, rough?
ly eailmated the value ot ihe cargo al $20,000.
The Hardee wes owned and run by me Oc
mulzee Steamboat Company, made up almusL
entirely of Savannah merchants, upon whom
her loss falls. She ls valued al $15,000, and ls
uninsured. She is seven years old. and was
built by Pusey, Jone? ? Co., of Wilmington,
Delaware, lor the co ist biiBiuess, la which she
has been engaged since her arrival here irom
the Norih. Tue boat has been doing a flue busi?
ness this season,and, like the Nick King, her
loss Is a particularly ai-astrona one Just al
Ibis period. It Is ihnught that she can be
raised ll the proper efforts are made, and pro?
posals are invited for this wurk. The pre?
sence ot the large cargo will operate seriously
agalnsi the t ffjrls made lo taise her. The
loss of lile ls greatly to be regretted. It may
be that some ot iheae missing men may have
floated away and landed lu the marshes or
islands below, though we can readily under?
stand how they could have been caught In the
trap below when the f.ieamer went down so
suddenly. An effirl will be made to recover
tne bodies. We are told that no blame at?
taches lo the captain or pilots. The ulght was
a dark and loggy one, and the slight t beering
out ol Ihe malo channel cou d not be avoided.
THE DRY GOODS TRADE
The Boston Shipping Lisi (22d) notices a
decidedly belter leeiiug in the market this
week. The Jobbers are receiving liberal or?
ders from their travelling salesmen, and
though but few buyers have made their ap?
pearance here, the spring trade may bc con?
sidered as having fairly opened. All kinds ol
colton fabrics are moving from first bands at
s ii l ?lac io ry prices, and stocks generally are
lighter limn usual at this season. On some
brands of bleached sheetings'and shirtings
there has been un advance, and un several
kinds of colored goods there ls an upward
tendency. Bul the most noticeable feature in
our report Is Ihe reduction ol xc. per y .rd in
Cocheco prints, which have for several years
psst sustained the reputation of bel?g ihe best
prints made In this country, and for that
reason have commanded ic. and sometimes
lc. per yard more lean otuer brands. Tnls
season several ot the print companies have
succeeded In Improving their productions,
and the light work of the Manchester, Hamil?
ton and Spragues ls u decided success. At
lija the trade have been able io get ample
supplies of these brands, and as the Cocheco
was held at 12c, li was somewhat neglected
This induced th-? ugeuls ol the latter lo lower
t. it-ir price, and now ull are on the same
looting, wilh only a alight difference In the
abape ol discounts.
Tne New York Economist (2Jd) says the
colton goods market has undt-igone a change
ot the m ist pleasing character to agents and
mauulacturers, both in ihe increased move?
ment o( goods and the advanced prices on
tome tickets and the general firm tone on the
whole line ol goods. The movement In
bleached gooda has partaken somewhat ol the
sp?culative cast, and though there waa really
no surplus quantity of fine grades lhere was
alike, no occasion tor the step taken as a reac?
tion of a comparative quiet is sure to follow
the adoption of such measures. The p. ini
cloth market shows no special change since
our last report, but continues firm at 7jc for
cixGl extras and n0 surplus quantities offer?
ing fer spot purchases. The market for pi mts
was somewhat impaired by Hie action ni (be

Thursday and closing their stock lo Messrs
H. B. Catlin & Co , who are disiribiuing

bers who have been tqually free binera cl

WASHINGTON, February 25.
It lb conceded by all who have witnessed
the most exciting scenes in the House of Rep?
resentatives for the past ten years that there
bas never been an occasion which attracted
such an Immense crowd as that of to-day.
Even tbe impeachment of Andrew Johnson,
exciting as that was, did not "draw" so well.
There are doubtless an unusual number of
strangers In the city who are attracted bli her
by ihe prospect ot the inauguration, lor all the
hotels are lull, but it ls unquestionably tne
met that ihe proposed expulsion or two such
well-known members as Mr. James Brooks
and Mr. Oakes Ames bas caused an unusual
excitement in all circles and among all clas?
ses. Although it was announced In the House
yesterday, and the fact was published In the
Ballimore and Washlogisn papers, that tbe
doors leading to the galleries would not be
opened until half-past ten o'clock, ibe House
corridors were thronged as early as half-past
nine o'clock to such an extent that lt was al?
most Impossible to make one's way through
the surging mass.
THE CRUSH AND ITS EFFECTS.
Two-thirds ci this throng were lad'ea, and
the crush was so great that eome ot them
actually fainted and bud to be carried out.
Alter all tbelr pains of early attendance, there?
fore, ibey did not bave an opportunity ot wit?
nessing the proceedings, ?nen a rush as was
made when ibe doors were finally opened is
not oiteo witnessed, and In a very lew min?
ules every seat was occupied, and still there
were hundreds In ibe corridors and passage
ways. By ihe time the House was called io
order, at ll o'clock, at least one-half of the
people in the Bouse wing of the capitol bad
not been able lo obum admission. They
hung about the lobbies and clamored lor ad?
mission, and finally, when the Journal ol yes.
terday was about half completed. Mr. Cox.
with hU accustomed g -.lianiry, moved thai all
ladles who bad tailed to obtain admission lo
ibe galleries oe admitted to ibe floor.
BEAUTY IN THE BEAR GARDEN.
Tbls was adopted, and in a few moments
every available space ot ihe floor waa occu?
pied. They, occupied the sofas and cha?ralo
ihe rear ot the members' seats; they stood
upon every loot of flooring, and finally en?
croached upon the seats ot the members, so
ibat, scattered all over the ball, aod sand?
wlcbed between members, were dames and
misses In gay attire, forming one of the most
brllllaut scenes thar had ever been witnessed
on ihe floor ot the H >use. But the crowd was
au orderly one, and maintained the greatest
good oroer and quiet. Indeed, the presence
ol ladies seemed io have an admirable effect,
a* the Rouse was not so much of a bear gar?
den as lt ls on ordinary occasions. It was
suggested In the galleries mat lt would be
well to have ladles on ihe floor at all times.
A SLIGHT DIVERSION.
After Ihe Jouroal had been read. General
Butler created a slight diversion ny moving
io take up ibe legislative bill. The crowd
looked disappointed fearfully lest the motion
should prevail, but Judge Poland came to the
rescue, aud Insisten upon ibo special order,
which was at once proceeded with. Judge
Poland opened the debate, first indicating that
bu would not call tor the previous question
iinill the House indicated its desire io close
THE CULPRIT CONGRES Bli EN.
In the meantime all the gentlemen implica?
ted lu the Cr?ait Mobilier bad come In and
taken their places. Mr. Ames occupied his
own seat for a lew moment?, but Dually
moved io a front sent-that occupied by Mr.
Wallace, ot South Carolina. Messrs. Brooks,
Dawes, Garlleld, Kelley, Scotield ana Bing?
ham were lo their own seats. There was a
sligbi contusion lor a lime, while a number of
ladles who could not obtain places elsewhere
crowded lo ihe iront and took seats on the
marble steps leading to ihe speaker's chair.
UR. BROOK! AND MR. AXES.
Mr. Brooks, pale and apparent ly very feeble,
was an attentive listener lo all the discus?
sions. He referred to the testimony as aiten
tion was directed to lt, and look copious notes,
evidently with ibe purpose ot making an
elab?rale reply before a vole should be taken.
Mr. Ames appeared very much unconcerned
while Mr. Poland was speaking, and trequeni
ly Indulged in a smile. But he seemed m re
serious while his statement was being lead,
und at the part making alluslou lo his ser?
vices to ibe country, he was seen lo shed
tears. This Maternent, lt ls understood, was
prepared by General Buller.
closed Ibe debate tor ibe aliernoon, and made
a most effect Ive argument, which evidently
bad a convloolug effect upon some of the mern-,
b rs who were In doubt whether they should
or should noi vote for the r?solution ol expul?
Tne House then took a recess unlit 7.30,
when ll was understood lhat the session
would be devoted lo debate omy. Mr. Poland
will not call ibe prevluu* quest lon nulli late
to-morrow afternoon. So great ls the desire
to bear this debate that at least a hundred
ladles remained io the House irom 5 until
7.30 o'clock, determlued lo have good seats
for the evening session.
WASHINGTON, February 27.
The proceedings ot ibe House to-day were
quite sensational. The body met at len
o'clock, and discussed tbe expulsion resolu?
tions lill past noon. It ihen proceeded to
vote on a snbsiliute offered by Sargent, ol
I Colorado, by a majority ot tour. Then Sar?
gent's resolution, absolutely condemning ibe
conduct of Ames and Brooks, was adopted
by a vote of five to one. A third resolut ion of
Sargent's was io discharge ihe committee and
ihtiR end the whole maller. That was defeated
by a majority of tweniy, and thus the whole
subject was again tbrowu oo them. Spier, of
Pennsylvania, offered a resolution censuring
the conduct of Kelley, and that was discussed
amid great excitement till ibo hour of taning
a recess. If Ibat r?solution be adopted, lt
will be followed by similar resolutions In re

THE FIGHT FOR LOUISIANA.
THE STRUGGLE WAXING WARM-HOT
DEBATE IN THE XT. 8. SENATE.
Motton and Carpenter Look Horm.
WASHINGTON, February 27.
Louisiana affairs aro becoming serious.
Upon a resolution ol tbe Fusion Legislature
io reinstate certain coarta In New Orleans
Parish. Governor McEnery called oat tbe mili?
tia of the parish. No danger seems to be ap?
prehended either bere or there, and up to thia
time no Federal action has been taken. It
was understood that the MoEnery government
should be allowed lo organise, so as to obtain
a stains before the court, and not to be Inter?
fered with unless lt attempted to seize the
State government. It is thought here that
the Rubicon has been crossed, and startling
ue ws may be expected.
In the Senate to-day Carpenter mored that
the calendar be laid on the table for the pur?
pose of taking up the bill providing for a new
election In Louisiana, He said that lt wai,
necessary that this should be acted upon to
avert the bloodshed, which, according to the
morning press, seemed to be Imminent - ia'
Sherman and If orton also urged Immediate
action upon the bill, and it was therefore taken
up. Hill offered a substitute embeds lng his
views In favor of the choice of a new Legis?
lature from the legally elected members of
both bodies now claiming lo be the State L?g?
islature, and authorizing the new Legislature
so formed to count the returns -bf the last
election, and deolare who are the legally
elected State officers.
Carpenter addressed the Senate in support
ol ihe bill reported by the majority ot the
committee. He said that he had Just re*
eel ved a telegram from a trustworthy source,
declaring that the people of the country
parishes In Lonlalana would never yield
obedience io the Kellogg government unless
forced to do so by the bayonet.
Morton argued against tbe bill, denouncing
the McEnery government aa. a mere faction,
striving to overthrow the real government.
But they were getting into rather deep water.
They might now be looked upon as rioters,
and were liab'e to be shot. He claimed that'
ihe movements of MoEnery were instigated V
Car pent ;r followed with an elaborate
speech. He argued that there were bot two'
courses to pursue, to acknowledge MoBnery
or pass the election bill.
Senator Thurman, who represented Ins
Democrats, made a speech favoring the re?
cognition of McEnery as the only solution.
The speeches were upon three points; (1)
sustaining Kellogg, (2) upholding McEncry,
and (3) ordering a new election, and Indicated
that, In the opinion of the orators, a Repub?
lican form of government lu Louisiana, tor
the moment, had fizzled. The Indications are
that the vote will be very dose, and that th?
issue will be lorced before the Senate adjourns.
JUDGE MACONS. ALLEN.
MaconB,. Alien, the newly elected Judge Of
the Inferior Court, Is fifty-five years old, and a
I "native of the State of Indiana. He la a col?
ored man of light complexion, and ls said tb
