THS JJ tans II PAJ?L TABLENT.-The
London correspondent of the Hews
writes that Parliament has closed, and
unless some great event should hap?
pen, it will not meet, again until Feb?
ruary. It was In all respects a curi?
ous session, lt began last February.
It was a new Parliament, led by a new
? ministry, who liad a majority bf 70.
At the end of six mouths that minis?
try is out of office, and the conser?
vatives sit on thc right of the speaker.
Noteworthy, too. aro the events of
the past six months. The needle gun
has upset all Europe und nearly
crushed the empire of Austria. Tho
British Parliament has had to deal
with rebellion in Ireland, with cattle
plague, with an unprecedented com?
mercial crisis, with pestilence and
rioting. Yet we may fairly say that
the session, in respect to legislation,
hos been wasted. Nothing has been
done for Ireland except to deploro
Irish grievances. Nothing has been
done for the English poor but to cou
! fess how badly they are used. No
i thing hos been done to ameliorate
I the couditiou of the financial world.
Nothing lias been done to settle the
class questions, such as church rates
and reform. There has been a chango
of ministry, and that we must per?
force regard as the main work of the
GEN. GRANT AND THE PRESIDENT.
The recent action of Gen. Grant, in
placing himself by thc side of the
President, has created a sensation in
radical circles. They do not well see
how they can carry on, successfully,
another war without him.
Tho St. Louis Democrat lnrving de?
nied the report that the sympathies
of the General are with the President
and his policy, the Memphis Commer?
cial, which seldom speaks without
authority, sa j's:
Now wc assert, upon authority only
second to that of General ( iran t's
written statement, that he is fully in
accord with President Johnson in his
policy of restoring the Union, and
that ho approves of the proceedings
of tho Philadelphia Convention.
M. Gillibert, a Frenchman, has in?
vented au apparatus to enable a
person to enter a buming building
without being stifled by the smoke.
It is simple, and consists only of a
lire-proof air-bag, which is carried on
the fireman's back, and from which
he breathes by means of a tube pass?
ing into the month, tho nose having
been previously stopped up. Expe?
riments made with this at tho Ports?
mouth (Euglaud) dock-yard showed
that a man could remain in the smoke
for six minutes with ease, even if
sulphur was added to the flame.
ENGLISH AGAINST AMERICAN CLAIMS.
A Washington correspondent of the
New York Express, says that Mr.
Seward is preparing to make another
formal demand upon tho British Go?
vernment for restitution for the
damage inflicted upon tho property
of the American citizens by tho Con?
federate privateers'. England has of
lato been putting in such enormous
claims against tho United States for
losses of English subjects in tho
South by Federal se?2 tires of pro?
perty during tho war that the ac?
counts to bo rendered by either Go?
vernment will very nearly offset the
other's indebtedness. Sharp Yankeo
There is a bare-footed Methodist

Tia? Presidejit's Speech.
ll bas already been announced by
telegraph that the popular and en?
thusiastic -welcome' to the President,
in New York, was rounded off by a
grand banquet at Dclmonico's, and
we published, on Friday, a tele?
graphic abstract of his speech on that
occasion. As this is regarded as a
very important speech, we subjoin a
full report, taken from our Northern
I know, as you know, that we have
just passed through a bloody and
perilous contest. We have gentle?
men here associated with us on this
occasion, who took nn active part in
that struggle for tho preservation of
our country-the army, on the one
hand, (pointing to Gen. Grant,) and
tho navy oa the other, (pointing to
Farragut.) [Tremendous cheers.]
Theso gentlemen have all performed
their part in restoting the country to
its present condition, and it would
be very derelict in me if I should
omit to ?ay that the Secretary of
State has fully performed his part.
[Cheers.} As to what part the hum?
ble individual who now addresses
you took in that struggle for the sup?
pression of the rebellion and the re?
storation of tho Government, I will
say nothing now; but I will say, in
summing up-though I may, perhaps,
be included in that summing up-I
will say that I feel that the Govern?
ment has discharged its duty.
But there is something oise to be
performed-the work is not yet
done. Though we havo passed
through fields of blood, and at times
almost forced to the conclusion that
we would be compelled to see tho
Goddess of Liberty go staggering
through carnage and blood, and om
Government a failure, yet, by the
blessings of Providence, matters have
been brought to a di li?rent termina
tion. So far we have boen saved.
But, while the enemy has been pul
down in the field, there still remaiiii
a greater and more important worl
for j ou to do. I must be permittee
to say-and I wish not to trespass
upon your time-I must be permittee
to remark, in this conncctiou, thu
the Government undertook the sup
pression of this rebellion for the ex
press purpose of preserving the unioi
of these States. [Great applause.]
That was the declaration it made a
the beginning, and under that declare
tion it went into the war and cou
tinued in until tho rebellion was sup
pressed. By the suppression of thi
rebellion, the Government establisher
and announced the great fact, thu
theso States have not the power nu
the right, either by forcible or peace;
ble means, to separate from cac
other. [Great cheering. [ That wa
determined and settled by the G<
vernment of the United States-tli
Executive Department of it. Bi
there is another department of yoi
Government which has declared, b
its official action, that, notwithstnm
iug the rebellion was suppressed fe
the purpose of preserving the unie
of the States, and to establish d<
finitely the doctrine that no State h:
a right to secede-I say there is a di
partment of your Government whic
luis practically assumed and declare*
and, np to the preseut time, earrie
! out, that tho Government was di
j solved, and the States were out of tl
I Union. [Groans.!
We who contended for the opp
site doctrine, years ago, contend?
that States had not the right, eve
peaceably, to secede; and, one meal
of peaceable secession was, by a Sta
withdrawing its representatives fro
the Congress of the United State
and that would bo practical dissol
tion of tho Union. Wo denied th
a State had any such right, and whe
subsequently, they attempted to wit
draw, wo again asserted that they hi
no such right; and now, when t
eloctrinohad been forcibly establish'
that a State has no right to leave t
Union, and when the States arft aga
resuming their relations with t?
Federal Government, as far as in the
lies, we find that, when they seek
havo the?r representatives admitt
to Congress, there are men in tl
body who, in violation of our gre
charter of liberty, deny their rig
to be represented, and refuse to a<ln
their representatives into the CV
gress of tho United States.
The query then comes up, in ?
struggle that is now before us, V
we submit-will tho American peoj
submit-to this practical dissolutic
aud this practical assertion of t
doctrine that they have already :

Well, gentlemen, what is said n
after the Philadelphia Convent:
has met and pronounced on tho e<
dition of the country-what is n
said? Why, that those men who r
in that Convention were iusince
that their professions were wo
nothing, and were not to bo believed.
Gentlemen, what better evidence can
you have cf loyalty than those men
give? ; Who has fought this rebellion
with more consistency and determi?
nation'" than I have-who has" sacri?
ficed or suffered moro for thc coun?
try? But because my sacrifi. s and
sufferings have been great, as an in?
cident growing out of a great civil
war, should I therefore become in?
sensible to truth and principle? We
are told that those men, notwith?
standing their professions of loyalty
and devotion to the Union, are not to
be believed; but I ask you what bet?
ter evidence you can have ot loyalty
and devotion than profession and
action? Who dares, in. this day of
political and religious freedom, to sci
up an inquisition and go into the
human bosom to search for motives
and sentiments? How many men
have lived under this Government all
along, from its origin up to the pre?
sent time, who have loyally obeyed
thc laws and payed their taxes, and
aided the Government iu every way
required of them, yet who, perhaps,
would much have preferred to have
had it greatly modified in form, or
even to hare lived under a monarchy?
The best evidence that cnn bo shown
of loyalty are loyal professions and
loyal actions, and when those gentle?
men, met in convention from the
North and South, como forward and
profess devotion to tho Uuion and
Constitution, and when their action?
and professious correspond, who shall
dare to doubt them? Have we reached
that point that all confidence is lost
in men? If we have, I tell you that
your Government i.s not as strong as
a rope of sand. lb has no weigh!..
and will tumble to pieces.
? -* *? X
Tho adhesive power of this Go?
vernment is in tho confidence which
the peo pie put in each other. [Grout
cheering. ] Theses men who sat in
convention sut iu a city tho profes?
sions of whoso people in tkutus gone
by were that they wore a pouo?-loving
and a war-hating people. These men
sat there in convention in the inter?
ests of peace, and their professions
are doubted. These people say to
thom, we won't believe you, and,
therefore, this present state of prac?
tical dissolution of the Union must
continu? to exist. Why, as a South?
ern man-though 1 ?lo not speak
here to-night as a Southern man, be?
cause I first saw the light of Heaven
in a Southern State-thunk God, I
feel that I entertain opinions and
ideas that aro co-extensive with all
the States and with the people of
them all. While I am a Southern
mau, I am a Northern mau also
that is to say, I am a citizen of thc
J United States, ?md am willing to cou
I cede to other citizens what I claim
Hut L was going to call your atten?
tion to a point. The Southern States
or their leaders proposed separation,
j Now, what was tho reason that they
did so? The time has come to eon
suit our reason, and not mere impulse.
What was tue reason, or one of the
reasons, that the South gave for de?
siring separation? They said they
feared that tho Constitution of thc
i United States could not be enforced,
aud that their rights could not be se?
cured in the Union; that was the
reason they gave. They said the
Constitution cannot be enforced, iu
! the Uuion. and, therefore, we will
separate from the Union, and we will
form a now Government for our?
selves, and will toke tho Constitution
?>f our country and enforce it there.
I That was separation; it was against
? the Union, and I was always opposed
j to anything that was opposed to the
! Union. 1 took my positiou in the
j Senate of tho United States, and as
! sinned then, as I have sine. that
'? tins Union was perpetual; ti;..: it was
? a great magie circle that cou! never
bo broken. [Applause. |
Hut the reason the South gave was,
that the Constitution could not be
enforced under the then existing
! combination of States, and, therefore,
that it. might be enforced, they
wanted separation. They attempted
to .?.eparate, but they failed. Hut
while the question was pending, they
established for themselves a form of
i Government, and what kind ol' a Go
\ vernment was it? What kind of a
! Constitution did they adopt? Was it
j not tho same old Constitution, with
sume few variations, the Constitution
! of the United State.-? You know
I that it was, and that they desired to
i live under that Constitution, and en
I force its provisions, under a separate
k Government of their own. We said,
I no! you shall remain with us, and the
Constitution shall be preserved and
enforced. We fought on until the
rebellion was suppressed; and when
the armies ol' the rebellion were over?
come, they accepted the tenus that
j tho Government gave thom. The
I Government sa: to them, disband
your armies and return to your origi?
nal positions in tho Uuion, and we will
receive you with open arms.
Hut iu tho West they have a way of
playing hammer and anvil. While
Davis and others of that class were
talking ol' separation at thc South,
i there was another class at the North,
I made up Phillips, Garrison, and such
! men, who-were talking dissolution at
I the North. These were the two ex
! triemos-tho one the anvil and the
j other the hummer; and when the
rebellion broke out, ono end of the
line joiued in with those who were
trying to suppress it. The rebellion
has been suppressed, but wo have not
? yet ceased to play that gamo of ham?
mer and anvil I am for tho Union,
and I am against all those who are
opposed to tho Union. I ?rn for the
Uniom the whole Union, and nothing
but the Union. [Vociferous ap?
plause. J I helped my distinguished
friend on my right (General Grant)
to fight the rebellion at the South.
You all remember hispeculiur-phraae,
"That he was going to fight it out on
that line. " f Laaghtor. j I was with
him, and I did all that I could. " "We
whipped them at that end of the line,
and x want to say to you hero that I
am now fighting at the other ?nd,
[laughter and applause,] and if he is :
not in tho field noa- in tho military
sense, ho is where he does good ser- ;
vice. It is a struggle for the Union i
in which we are engaged.
The Union is essential to us. The
North cannot got along without the
South, nor the South without the
North. But men say, do you want to
be governed and controlled by rebels?
I answer, no! We want to let loyal
men in, and none bnt loyal men;
[applause] and I ask here to-night,
upon what reasonable ground rests
tho fear that men coming into Con?
gress from the South would control
tho country to its destruction? Take
the entire "delegation-58 representa?
tives, compared with 2S??-do you
fear that 58 men will control all the
rest? [Laugh tei*.] Oh, men say,
they will repudiate our publie debt.
Now, place these 58 men in the most
powerful position that you possibly :
can, and you have 150 or 180, an*
overwhelming majority against them.
Surely, enough to keep them from
doing serious harm. [Laughter.]
Are wo a great people? Are we all
cowards? [No.] Lid they control
you before the rebellion commenced,
and will they have any more power
now than they had before?
* * * * *
There is another thing. You have
about -3:1,000,000,000 in bonds. How
aro you going to preserve the credit
of them? Will yon tell mc how tho
security, how the value, how the ulti?
mate payment of the interest and
principal of those bonds is to be se?
cured? Is it by continuing this Go?
vernment, disrupted as it is, by crip?
pling our energies, and dividing us
up into half a dozen petty States?
Let me tell yon, and mark what I
I tell you, that there is no way by
j which those bonds can be ultimately
paid, interest and principal, than by |
the consolidation of our nationality, j
the perpetuity and completeness of
the union of the States. [Applause.]
Pardon me, when I say I understand i
this question; and I tell you that you
play a false part now, and play into
the hands of your enemies and the
enemies of your country when you
aid those who would keep the Go
Let us unile all portions of the
country firmly together, and you will j
have more capital than you need. I ':
am proud to say, on this occasion,
not ly way of flatt cry or compliment
to tho people of New York-I am
proud to say that I lind a liberal,
comprehensive, patriotic and ex
pansive view of this whole question ;
among the people of New York. 11
am proud, also, to lind that you do
not feel that your existence depends
on aggression aud destruction; that,
while you are anxious to live, you are
willing to let others live, and do not
wish to live by their destruction.
New York is a great commercial city.
I was asking a man, the other night,
what amount of taxes yon collect in
the eitv of New York. I was told it
was r?10,000,000 or $18,000,000. You
remember what your Government
started from. You remember that,
when George Washington was inau?
gurated President, the total cost of
the Government was $2,500,000, while
here, to-day, my distinguished friend
upon my left (Mr. Hoffman) is con?
trolling the destinies of a city whose
taxes ?..mount to 18,000,000; and
your State, with its population of
?,000,000, has a system of govern?
ment, general and municipal, more
eon- I x and costly than tho whole
Federal Government at its origin.

For myself, I am contented to be
guided by the example of the Saviour
of mankind. If I have pardoned
many, it has been because I thought
it was for the best interests of the
country, having found them repent?
ant and anxious to be pardoned. Gen?
tlemen, I have talked long enough,

upon it, of course, and talk about it.

Gentlemen, your country is in your
bauds. The issue is before you. I

duties in tho way that I believed
would most surely tend to bring back
harmony to all sections of tho coun?
try. What have 1 to gain by any
other course? I have filled every
office, under this Government. You
may talk about mo as you w?l. Men
may traduce and villify me. Menda?
cious and unprincipled writers may
attack mo as they will, but all of them
cannot drive mo from what I feel to
bo right. [Great cheering.]
What have I to gain? . From the
lowest office in your city to the Presi?
dency of the United States-I havo
filled every office. Who can do more?
Ought not any reasonable ambition
to bo satisfied with that? I tell you,
gentlemen, that the summit of my
ambition lias been reached, with the
exception of one thing. Will you

tear what that is? It is that, if at
this particular crisis of our country'*
history," Anding the union of "these
Slates imperilled', I can be instru?
mental in the hands of the people in
restoring the Union and making it
complete and perpetual-if I can do
that, I viii be willing to exclaim, UH
Simeon of old, when bc saw the babe
that had been born in the manger.
..Now that I have seen the glory of
thy salvation, let thy servant depart in
peace." I would rather live in histo?

trymen, as the one who had consum?
mated this great result, than be Pre?
sident of the United States forty
Secretary Seward then rose and
proposed "three cheers for Andrew
Johnson, the restorer of the Union."
to which the President responded,
and proposed "the union, the perpe?
tual " union of the "States." Uoth
toasts were responded to with a wjll,
whereupon the Mayor offered a toast
complimentary to Mr. Seward.
A MARRYING MAN.-Bev. Jesse
Lamberth, the popular Ordinary of
this County, has probably married
more couples than any mau-'' of his
age in the United States, lt is-now
thirty-five years since he commenced
performing the ceremony as a justice
of the peace, and since then ha*
joined in the holy bonds of wedlock
1,626 couples! He has performed
the ceremony as justice of the peace,
as justice of the inferior court, but
mostly as minister of the gospel. In
many instances he has married the
parents and their children, and in
several cases he has married the same
individuals twice, their first consort
having died; and has married over
forty couples in his office room at his
dwelling in this city.
