Mr. Ewing first got the floor and con
tinued his speech of last eren in g. He was
much applauded on the democratic side.
He declared the men who were Insulting
the president were not men on the democat
ic side, but the stalwarts of the republican
party, who now hold the lash orer the pres
ident, threatening him with party expul
gion. if he dared be governed by his own
judgement only, instead of by the neces
sities ot secuonai wanes st tne norm.- lie
classified -among the stalwarta-Garfield
who had said if the president signed the bill
would be violating his conscience and sense
ofduty.Frye who had pledged the president
in advance to veto the bill, which pledge
waa a trial to the president, andConkling
in whose opinion the president would be a
dog if he signed the bill. Ewing then
lauded the southern representativeavdeclar.
lag that since the confederate brigadier
generals were there. . there had been no
more treat ioba naased through congress.
His speech wss much applauded on the
democratic side. v i
He declared it had been in the power of
tne humblest or the greatest of democrats
to have ruined him and proved him to be
a traduoer and slanderer, by simply using
and saying in contradiction of hia asser
tions as to its being the purpose of the
Democratic party to starve the govern
meet. We do not propose to refuse to
vote 'supplies. ; We -wish to get our legis
lation in. reference to the' election and
everything else, if we can constitutionally,
but if we cannot get it through under all
constitutional sanctions, we will' pass ap
propriation bills like loyal representatives
and go home. But though forty-five dem
ocrats had spoken, that sentence -had not
been uttered by a single democrat.
Ewing and Garfield each spoke fifteen
minutes, by unanimous consent, and each
was loudly applauded by his own side.
Mr. Horr, of Michigan followed, and
begun by holding up to ridicule the green
backer representatives, and caused great
amusement by the assertion that if all the
greenback back money demanded by the
bills introduced were to be supplied, the
greenbackers would have to get their cler
gyman, DeLaMatyr.'t- ask the Deity to
rary the merits of the deinge to open
sgain the doors and windows of heaven,
and to ra'n green back for forty days. He
then told tne southern democrats that
what their section wanted was more corn
and cotton and less cussedness, and wound
up by suggesting that one of the best
things that could happen the country
would be the turning on of yellow ferer
in congress. Only he would want the di
vinity to use great discrimination in mak
inn his selection. Horr moved up and
down the area as he spoke, and was much
applauded on both sides, and also in the
