*\Vliat a Stranger Sets in Congress
* * The ball is rather sombro,
Tlaylight struggling in drearily from
the top; but even tho light of a Juli
day malees the gilding glare painfully.
Ho observes the two little flags over
tho Speaker's head, and luis taken his
seat before perceiving that a man is
on his legs, behind one of those little
gingerbread desks, haranguing tho
House. He cannot hoar a word ho
says, partly because the man docs not
talk loud enough, but chielly because
no one is paying auy attention to
him. But few members are in their
seats, and those are busy writing, au
exercise that they vary with another
that somewhat amajws onr friend. He
tries vainly, and would like to catch
a word or two of a speech that seems
to elicit such terriblo;applause. Tho
members are constantly clapping their
hands with great but not prolonged
energy, at which littlo hobgoblin
pages spring about, running as if to
relieve each surcharged member of
his enthusiasm; and our friend gra?
dually discovers that the hand-clap?
ping is not applause, but a mode of
summoning the pages.
He gazes in bewilderment on the
Babel before him. Tho mun is read?
ing his speech, and does so from a
printed copy, as if ho were paid by
the line for it. The pages skip about.
The members clap their hands. Peo?
ple come in and look at the show with
stoical ar>athy, and then go ont again.
The man finishes his reading and sits
down. Another mau gets up and
commences the same performance.
The members go out, until not over
a dozen of thom are left. The man
is reading his speech. Ho does nut
do it very glibly; ho does not do it as
if he expected to gain anything by
it. Some humane friend comes to
his rescue with a motion; by parlia?
mentary fiction the speech is con?
sidered delivered, and printed with
the proceedings; and as many copies
as the orator likes to pay for may be |
stuffed into the glory of a buff on- j
velope and franked to a wondering j
constituency in his "district."
It may be a necessity in thc econo?
my of tho great parliamentary whale
that it come up to the surface and
blow off, and then go down again. If
it could be entirely restricted to the
Saturdays, it would bo better; one
day m six is, after all, not a great
deal to devote to parliamentary non?
sense. Making a speech is considered
the destiny of our politicians. The
member who should not succeed in
going through the operation just de?
scribed at least once in each session,
and franking home many thousand
dirty-looking little pamphlets as evi?
dence, would be considered an niter !
failure-a fraud upon the public: lt
makes no difference that ho has no?
thing to say. It makes still less that
no one wants to listou to him. At t lie
close of his "catechism" some loader
of the House may be kind enough to
shake him by the hand and congratu?
late hint QU his "speech," but even
the most verdaut member is not un?
sophisticated enough to believes thal
it bad any effect on anybody. It isa
very broad farce and a very shallow
one. Each Saturday geLs rid of half
a dozen of these orators.

IMPORTANT I>ECrSION ItESPECTlNO
AMERICAN PROPERTY OWNERS T.KV
OATKTJ TN A FoREION COUNTRY.-Til
thc lalo United States and Colombia
Commission, thc case of Augustus C.
Fvetz involved a question so impor
tant as to excite general discussion
? among tho diplomats. Itwas argued
by Mr. S. S. Cox for tho claimant,
an tl by Mr. Carlisle for Colombia,
anti subsequently, on a difference of
opinion between the Commissioners,
it was argued in printed brief by Col.
Biddle, Commissioner for the United
States, and Gen. Salzar, Commis?
sioner for Colombia, and tho umpire,
Sir Frederick Bruce, has decided
that Fretz, though holding property
on the Isthmus of Panama, was a
citizen of the United States for tho
purposes of the eoiiTcntion. Ho
owned the Ocean Hotel on the Isth?
mus, which was destroyed by thc
famous riot of April 1G, 1850, and it
was urp;ed that the temporary resi?
dence there and the ownership ol
real estate gave color to his nation?
ality, and made him a New Granadiau
citizen. His original domicil was in
tho United States, and it was held bj
tho claimant's counsel Unit Freto
never abandoned it; that he conti
nued his residence in Pennsylvania,
where he was boru, even when ht
had his place of business in Sai
Francisco, and that he never dwelt ii
Panama, but was onlj* there as ai
agent of a eompanj- domicile 1 else
whore. The umpire decided that In
was an American citizen, and that lu
was entitled to compensation for th
destruction of his property, of what
ever description -thc more so as tba
property was intimately connected
and supplementary to the neeessitic
created by the transit route-the pre
serration of good order and pcac
along which route tho Republic o
New Granada declares to bo tho fonr
dation of its liability in this class ?.
cases. To a share of that protectio
and to compensation for damages rt
suiting from the want of it, this hob
property is equitably entitled. Th
umpire quoted the case of Paofies,
British subject, whose house in Greec
I was destroyed, and held that ow ne:
' ship o? the house, coupled with lou
! residence, did not render him, coi
j stmctively, a subject of Greece as i
! matters affecting that property, m
deprive him of tho right of prote
! tion and full compensation which 1
claimed as a British subject.
A CURIOUS CASE IN NEW YORK. -
singular ease came up before the S
