TnE SPEAKERSHIP AND OTHER
"We gather the following from the
GHtner-JottrnaTi special telegraphic
correspondence of November 28: Con
slderable numbers of members and
prominent Democrats hove arrived
within the last two days, and a very
active" canvassing has begun for the
speakership and the minor offices of the
House. The contest for the speaker
ship'is the one chiefly discussed, and
on which the most feeling seems to be
evinced. Tho friends of Kerr claim
that he is sure of the nomination, and
those of Randall are equally positive
that he will be the man. As there are
only thirty or forty members present,
no accurate summing up of the relative
strength -of candidates can be made.
Some of the members present are
claimed by both sides, The full vote
nf Indiana is known to bo for Mr. Kerr,
and thatof Pennsylvania for Mr. Ran
dall. All of the candidates are repre
sented by their mends to be strong in
the New York delegation, and of course
some must be at fault in this calcula
While the speakership is the issue
that almost absorbs public attention, a
great deal of quiet canvassing has been
going on for the offices of clerk and ser-
coant-at-arms. The candidates for
clerk arc Adams of Kentucky, Crit
tenden of Missouri, Banks of Mississ
ippi, Dubose of Georgia, Shobcr ol
North Carolina, "Wcdderburn and
Whitehead of Virginia, and Archer of
Maryland. Most of these candidates
have been here for several days. The
Hon. Geo. M. Adams, of Kentucky,
has reached the cit', and was warmly
welcomed by his friends. It is beyond
all doubt that a Northern candidate
will be made speaker, and the clerkship
will go to the South. The preponder
ancc of Southern opinion will go
far to shape the result of the speaker
ship, and the Northern members will
have the opportunity in their turn of
deciding between the different South
cm candidates for the clerkship.
WOMAN AND MAN.
Have you never noticed that women
when they open and enter a gate or
door they invariably draw it too, and
carefully 'shut it after them. Vel!
that is true! and it is as proverbially
true that men never shut a door, or
gate, or shut tiffany danger that may
follow. For instance, a thousand men
may enter the court-house in the dead
of winter and nine hundred and ninety
will leave the door wide open, and bo
rate the Jailer for not filling the stov
and failing to set court-hall on fire gen
But why this difference of habit in
women and men ? We incline to think
that the ladies arc the most conserva
tive and provident. She forecasts and
calculates the consequences of a step
before site takes it; whereas, few men
forecast at-all, and very few think in
advance of them. This may be traced
to a more organic distinction between
the ladies and lords.
The lady is impotent, the man ro
buetaud self-sustaining; the lady
gentle and compromising; the man
courageous, self-confident and a dare
devil. The huly, conscious of her fec-
blj caste of life, isuusconsioutlvon the
alert, and cautious; the man, conscious
of his vital power, is incautious, un
consciously relying on his ability
to overthrow obstacles and conquer his
proud pathway onward. Be this phi
losophy as it may, we know that the-
man falls readily into ever' pit and
snare which Satan has si to trap the
race, whereas, if the ladies are not con
trolled in their vocations by the men,
the will pass unscathed through them
You never heard of n lady's driving
the horse into a hole in the bridge, and
you never heard of a man failing to
rive into the bole, if the bridge had n
hole in it. The reason, of this is that
before the lady started, she mentally
cast an eye all along the road to be
traversed, and noted every point at
which a danger might lark because of
her incapacity to shut in a calamitv.
but the man reflected ot nothing but
the felicities of the journey, scorning
to think that any impudent obstacle
could be interposed in his lordly way
Ur, it he reflected "Hie dangers sell

Galloa was a man ! Esther was a
woman; and Galloa, as a characteristic,

ject to the man ."lovely pone cmnUatwse

Well, steadying our nerves, we will
follow the first thought a little: Fe
males seldom fall into habits of excess.
All men have some habit in excess.
How readily they fall into drunken
ncss, And how seldom do the ladies.
This is susceptible of the same solution
as the door and gate shutting tact. Ine
ady instinctively forecasts the danger
of the first and anticipates the final
and fatal drink, and if passing a gro
cery door she trips fugitively by. But
men, conscious of their masculine will
and great powers of endurance, never
consider the danger, the initiative of
of an evil, and so dallys with the Siren
as Samson with Deliala. He, passing
the erocerv. iust pastes in, as he would

The Vice-rresident of the United

unexpected, as reports of his convales

respect, however, we shall ever think
his philanthropy was misguided. He

LETTER FltOJI AX EGYPTIAN.
Millwood, Ky., Nov. 30.
Friend Meuemit: In my last
I referred to the poets and poetry of
Aracrica,butl am forced to change the
subject again, and speak of some things
that are truly becoming nuisances in
this free land. I spoke once before of
the jury system as a something repug'
nant to our own nature, but, since
writing of that institution, I have ob
served another nearly as bad, of which
I will speak in my present crnstle.
The letting of contracts for public
buildings is becoming the greatest
frauds practiced on these proud sons of
freedom. (Jnly a few months ago the
county, wherein I reside, concluded to
build them a jail, for the better security
of those law-breakers which have be
come so numerous, since freedom has
become universal. This contract was
awarded to a very poor mechanic, who,
with the assistance of a regular fraud
appointed by the County court.botched
the job, and compelled those over-bur
dened tax-payers of our own county
to disburse several thousand dollars of
their scanty funds, which they, indeed,
could very poorly spare. The next
county to where I reside have con
cluded to build them an institution of
the same kind, but I would advise
them to watch the builder, and compel
him and his employees to finish their
work according to terms of contract,
then they most assuredly will have a
little value for the enormous sum of
money they are compelled to pay for
this piece ol practical vanity.
Thanking the kindly dwellers of
Hartford for their generosity as long
as I was able to pay for it, on my re
cent visit to that metropolis, I will' con
clude by hoping your shadow, and the
shadow of my good friend Juno of
Beaver Dam, may never grow le??.
