In the Ho iso, bills bridging the Mis?

passed. A bill fixing the selection of

on the same day passed, and goes to the
Presideut. The bill releasing Japan
from $375,000, balance on the treaty,
passed. Butler, of Massachusetts, op?
posed the bill, as giving up nearly $500,
000 without any sufficient reason fur
doing so. He hoped that the House
would stand true to the people, and pre?
vent the voting away of this money on
the mere sickly sentimentality of culti?
vating friendly relations with our half
savage. friends in Japan. The Alabama
claims had been given up in order to cul?
tivate peace with Great Britain, and now
this money was to be given up in order
to cultivate peace with Japan. Thus we
were buying peace, until we should be
the most degraded nation on earth.
Butler, of Massachusetts, from the
Ku Klux Committee, reported the bill
to amend the Enforcement Act in regard
to elections. The reporting of the bill
was the signal for the opposition to re?
sort to parliamentary tactics to prevent
a vote. Holman opened the ball, at
3.20, by a motion to adjourn, supple?
mented by a motion, by Wood, that
when the House adjourn, it adjourn to
raeet on Friday next. The alternation
of these two motions, whioh are always
in order, may occupy the time of the
House indefinitely. After several votes

DEATH OF THE LAST OF GENERAL
WASHINGTON'S SLAVES.-Old uncle Mac
rice Jasper, who has been paralyzed for
the IRS? twenty years, died nt the resi?
dence of Mr. Frank Triplett, near Mount
Vernon, cn Tuesday last. He was the
last one of the slaves emancipated by
General Washington, and was sixteen
years old when his master died. His
father and mother oame directly from
Africa, and are well remembered by some
of the older residents of tho vicinity.
Uncle Maurioe lived for a time on the
tract, about four miles from Mount Ver?

for his manumitted slaves, but for fifty
odd years beforo his death lived with

BEFOBTS FROM, WASHINGTON HEAD?
QUARTERS. -Although the Liberal Repub?
lican headquarters, in this city, have
been opened less than a week, letters
begin to pour in from all parts of the
country, asking for documents and
speaking in the most encouraging man?
ner of tho prospects. A greater number
of letters li received from Indiana than?
from any other State, owing to the fact
that the Hon. J. i>. Defrees, who has
long been prominent in the politics of
that State, is in oharge of tho head?
quarters. These letters predict that the
State will be carried for Greeley by
80,000 majority, if his nomination is en
. dorsed at Baltimore. Mr. Defrees and
his assistants are industriously at work,
and will soon issae important documents
for general distribution.
Private letters from Iowa, received
here from numerous well-informed
sources, agree that there is little doubt
that the Demooratio State Convention,
to be held on Jane ll, will endorse the
Cincinnati ticket and send delegates to
Baltimore pledged to its support. It is
understood that Senator Sonars is pre?
paring a speech endorsing the Cincin?
nati ticket, whioh he will deliver during
the coming week, although at what
plaoe is not stated. His invitations to
speak are very numerous, and it is not
known whioh he has accepted to make
his opening speeoh in the canvass.

MR. STEPHENS A3 EDITOR.-The Mo?
bile Register says:
Elsewhere iu to-day's issue wo pro?
duce other extracts from Mr. Stephens'
paper, the Atlanta ?Sun, and we believe
we have folly stated and illustrated his
position. He writes entirely and wholly
from his iunor couNoientiouaness, and
from life-taught and ingrained belief in
priuciple. There is nothing of the mo?
dern editor, not a soupcon of the "live
uewspaper man" about Mr. Stephens.
He edits his Atlanta paper by living at
Liberty Hall, Crawfordsville, and re?
ceiving his mails und news ut that point.
He is thus twelve hours behind any other
editor iu his knowledge of events, and
bis views upon them are double that
time in getting to his readers. Hence a
lightning sensation may strike, shiver
and iguite his community, und then die
out, before Mr. Stephens can even cull
for the cugiue. His lightuing-rods, so
to speak, have both points buried in the
ITowever sound and doctrinally unex?
ceptionable Mr Stephens' views may be,
they do uot strike his renders with the
fresh vigor, the olear quickness, that the
eager publia mind demands and longs
for in a crisis like the present. Mr. Ste?
phens himself feels this: He acknow?
ledges to being behiud the times, when
in his last issue, he says he has not seen
the new apportionment, and gives tho
number of electors thereunder as 857,
with 179 necessary to a choice. The
coll?ges really-as we have frequently
before stated-comprise 3G7 votes, of
which 18-1 are necessary to a choice.
All calculations based upon tho first
table would be erroneous; aud it is so
with mauy points of a campaign that re?
quires immediate und accurate informa?
tion and prompt decision upon its do
tails. Heneo we have said that Mr. Ste?

INEXCUSABLE INSOLENCE.-It is about
time that Southern gentlemen, without
regard to politics, ab ou ld become restive
ander the arrogant airs assumed by a
meddlesome down-Easter, who floated
Southward seven years since from Bos?
ton, located in New York, and after some
curious vicissitudes, at last fastened him?
self upon tbe Democratic party, and be?
came editor of a Demooratio paper. Our
allusion is, of course, to the editor of the
New York World, and tbe provocation to
it is the following piece of flippant im?
pertinence, appearing in that paper of
the 23d instant:
"GENBBAL ?DICK' Tarnon -The Tri?
bune bas stated that Richard Taylor, son
of President Zaohary Taylor, has signed
a call of tho citizens of New Orleans for
a Qreeley ratification meeting.
"It is falso. Oeneral Taylor has signed
no call for a Qreeley meeting. There is
no sounder heart under anybody's jacket,
and no wiser bead on anybody's shoul?
ders in the Southern oountry than 'Dick'
Taylor carries abont with him. It ?B
certain, therefore, that he desires the
deliverance of the land, and knows that
a vote for Greeley is no help thereto."
' General Richard Taylor may or may
not have signed the call referred to. But
whatever he may do or say in reference
to the approaching canvass, he is above
the reach of that editor's attack or de?
fence, both as to the wisdom of his head
and the soundness of his heart. Many
hearts beating under Southern jackets,
and many heads on Southern shoulders,
fool and think that a vote for Greeley
may deliver the land from the load of
corruption, fraud and tyianny nader
which it bas groaned for several long
years. These hearts beat high under
that hope. They scorn the insolent in?
sinuation as to the soundness of their
impulses and aspirations. These heads
contemplate serenely the bright path of
deliverance opened to them by that vote.
They look not to the New York editor,
of chequered career and of motley record,
for an endorsement of their wisdom.
They would indignantly plead to the
Tbe Demooratio party of the Southern
country and all shades of opinion in it
