btaoss Rbxatiobliss Bilations A few
years ginoe a widower, a Mr.- W., with two
ohildren, both boys, entered into a matrimonial
union with a widow, Mrt. having two
daughters. . In tbe oourae of time the husband
died, leaving; two young children, a little boy
and girl. ",The eldest son of Mr. W. entered
into matrimonial union with hig step mother,
Mrs. W. ef course retaining the same name.
A child was born, a line bouncing little female.
This being the state of the ease, who can tell
tbe precise relation the parties have with each
other? The step-son becomes the step-father
to. those who, oy law, are his step-sisters,
while the step-mother becomes the wife ef her
step-ton.1; This It plain enough, but what It
the exact relationship of the little babe to the
elder daughters of Mrs. Ff ' Can it be a stop
sister, when its father, the husband of their
own mother, is their step-brother? It would
seem so.' . '-' v -
But the seoond son of Mr. W. married hit
step-sister, Miss P., and they have been blessed
with a ooaple of children, who would seem to
be first cousins to the first offspring of Mrs. W.
But how can they be first cousins when Mrs.
W. is their grand-mother? or how oan they be
Sand cousins when they never had a grand
tier? This seems to be a sort of perplexing
riddle that may puule a PhiUdilphU lawyer
to unravel. In all this intermarriage it will

Mak iota or 1 Madpjd TBtlMt. The brutal
treatment which Madame Grial has experi
enced at the hands of the high-born, well
bred, potato-hurling, howling audience Which
frequents the Italian Opera hers, has given
rise to muoh recrimination. Slgnor Mario hat
naturally-resented these gross' and brutal
Insults on a lady whose former fame should
have seoured her an Immunity at least from an
Insult. : But in bis remonstrances, he has been
met by the remark, that during the hey-dey
of her prosperity, Madame Grisi disdained to
aooopt any of the brilliant offers of the Madrid
managers,! and that she. only does so now,
when her oraoked and broken voice fails to
prceure any price in tbe market. Many
angry disousslons have arisen on this matter,
and at last they have resulted in at duel, which
came off yesterday. The principals were
Signor Mario and Ssnor Ban Miguel, the
direotor of tbe Prlnoipe Theater. After sev
eral passes, and both- combatants were
wounded, the one in the face, the other in the
arm, tbe seoondg interfered, and the honor of
both was declared soot free. Neither has been
seriously hurt; indeed, Mario would be able to
sing again next week, were his servloss re
quired, but he will dsoline ever again to slog

Journal, after giving an' account' of thtlast
days and funeral of Washington Irving, says:
1 Mr. Irving had been for some time aware Of
the uncertain tenure -of his life with the
disease at his heart whloh has now ended it so
suddenly. He fully anticipated an instan
taneous stopping of the fluttering pulse, and
was, therefore, careful never to be left atone
but he talked cheerfully of dying. My com
panion home, after the funeral, (Mr. GrlnneU,)
was one of our party when the beloved author
accompanied us on a visit to "Sleepy Hol
low," two years ago-a privileged day, whloh
I described In the Bom oumofatthe time)
and ho reoalled to my mind the peculiar un
hesitatlDgness with which Mr. Irving pointed
out to us, as ws drove past it in the carriage,
the old oburoh which was his family burying
ground. "It Is soon to be my resting-plaoe,"
he said, expressing it in the tone of an habitual
thought, and returning immediately to the
lively conversation suggested by the historic
scenery we Were passing through. And to
this place he was borne and laid to 'rest, yes

believe, In having been "found ready,"

Bob. Psxton, in bis life of Jackson, says: :('
It was a happy marriage a very happy
marriage one - of the happiest ever con
tracted. They loved one another dearly.
They held each other in the highest respect.
They testified the love and respect they en
tertained for one another by those polite at
tentions whloh lovers can not but ezobange
before marriage and after marriage. Their
love grew as their years increased, and beoame
warmer as their blood beoame colder. No
one ever heard either address to the other a
disrespectful, an Irritating, or unsympathiglng
word. They were notes familiar as Is now
the fashion."' He remained Mr. Jaokson to
her always never General; still less Andrew.
And he never called her Raohel, but Mrs,
Jackson, or wife. A prosaic habit this which
we can not commend Bo. Meanwhile let
it be understood that our hero has now a home,
where lives a friend, true and fond, to wel
come his return from "wilderness courts," to
obeer his stay,- to lament his departure, yet
give him a motive , for going forth; a home
wherein whatever manner of man he might
be elsewhere he was, always gentle, kind
and patient :: T - v: V,,
Naw Kailboad Bracks. Mr. Fairbalrn re
cently read a paper before the British Scientific
Association, on the subject of experiments to
determine the efflcleney of continuous and
self-acting brakes, for railway trains. On this
tubjeot it was stated that the most Important
communication whloh had yet been made was
the report of Tolland to the Bailway Depart-'
ment of the Board of Trade," The brakes with
which Tolland experimented were, it appears,
those Which, as improvements on the common
baud-brakes have commanded most snooess.
Similar experiments were afterward made on
similar brakes, which Mr. Fairbalrn was called
on to carry out br the directors of the Lanca
shire and Yorkshire Bailway. ' The general
result of all the various experiments show that
a train oeuld be stopped by what are known as
Fay and Nswall's brakes, at a velocity of
twenty miles an hour, in 23.4 yards; at forty
miles an hour, la 93.8 yards; at fifty miles aa
hour, In 148,8; and at sixty miles aa hour, la
311.5, yards. ,t m" 'y

Wise, of Virginia, pardoned Sarah Campbell,
a young woman about nineteen years of age,
out ofl the Penitentiary, recently. She is
from Wheeling, Virginia, and beautiful In face
and figure. Bhe was convicted of receiving
stolen goods, and sent to the Penitentiary for
the term of one year. The girl's story Is that
the goods were brought to her by her lover,
and she. not supposing that they had been
obtained by undue means, received them. No
doubt she Is innocent, and If she is not, she Is
pretty; and that, as the world's gallantry goes,
is far more serviceable,1 .--a r,i s. ..;.
LATEST BY TELEGRAPH
XXXVIth CONGRESS—1st SESSION.
Wabbinotob, December, 10. The Senate is
not In session to-day. -
HOUSE Mr. Hickman, of Pennsylvania,
moved an amendment to the journal. No
mention had been made therein of his resolu
tion for the adoption of the plurality rule.
The Clerk said that the resolution ws
i was merely
read for information.
Mr. Hiokman insisted he had a right to offer
the resolution, which took preoedenoe of all
other questions. Heasked for a decision of the
question.
, Messrs. Grow, of Pennsylvania, and Wash
borne, of Maine, oontended that Mr. Hiokman
had a right to Introduce the resolution.
Mr. Houston, of Alabama, took the opposite
tide of the argument. . . ,
, Mr. Stanton, of Ohio, said that even he
should yield the floor, to which he was entitled.
The resolution could not be entertained now,
as other questions were pending.
; Mr. Began, of Texas, took occasion to say
that the plurality resolution was designed to
enable men to vote Indirectly for a Black
Republican, when they would not come up
like men and vote direotly for such a nominee.
'Mr. Hiokman replied that the remark did
not apply to him. He should vote for a Be
pablloan in preference to any gentleman who
sustains this Administration. (Applause on
the Republican side, intermingled with hisses
from the other side.)
Mr. Regan said that nobody doubted the
gentleman would vote for a Republican as
against a Democrat He repeated that tbe ob-
jtot of this unlawful attempt to act upon that
resolution was to smeia gentlemen from the
responsibility of doing indirectly what they
would not do direotly.
' Mr. Hiokman I have never conoeded any
where what my ultimate notion would be. I
prefer the election of a sound Democrat , By
that I mean a Democrat opposed to this Ad
ministration an Anti-Leeompton Democrat
I hare endeavored for a week to eleot such a
man, but I am beginning to fear that I shall
be unable to consummate that work,- I be
lieve that either a friend of the Administra
tion or a Republican is ultimately to be elected
Speaker. I am frank to say, in that event, I
have decided on the choice of the latter. I
have offered this resolution for the purpose of
reaching an organisation. If the Administra
tion party suooeed, I truat I shall submit In a
becoming spirit, . I am perfectly willing that
every man in the country should know my
views.. Xet the motion to amend the Journal
be put to the House to deoide.
Mr. William Smith, of Virginia, said that
the motion was unnecessary, in his view, of
the subject. If the gentleman moans to vote
fw the Republican nominee, he and those
thinking with him can do so,' and thus ends
the question. No man who has witnessed that
gentleman's eonrso for the last two years could
doubt that be would, at last, land In tbe Re
publican ranks. He says he wants a sound
Democrat elected, and yet he will rote with
Republicans. Who does he fool by suoh a
dootrine? The members' of the Democratic
arty are here to. perform a high and holy
aij t their country. .1 Want him to be un
derstood as a . Black-Republican, who only
takes the name of Democrat for the purpose of
hoodwinking and misleading. Let me ask
him if he would vote for Mr. Bosook to-day if
he would rise and say he was opposed to the
Administration?
Mr. Hickman frankly and unequivocally re
plied that he would not, because Mr. Booook
sustained the Administration in every thing
it has done, and he (Hiokman) was note
believer in eleventh hour repentonce. Laugh
ter. He would continue to regard himself as
a Democrat, notwithstanding the remarks of
the gentleman from Virginia. It is a question
that will be decided by the whole country
whether Jsmes Buohanan or those who hold
to the sentiments of the Clnoinnatl Platform
In its integrity, embody the Democratic senti
ment' '-
A lengthy discussion ensued between Messrs.
Horace F. Clark, of New York, and William
Smith, of Virginia, on political principles.
Mr. Clark said he never was and never
would be a sectional man. He was a repre
sentative of tbe great city of New York, a city
which oould not afford to send a seotional man
to Congress. He did not regard the Republi
can party at an Abolition party. He defined
Abolitionists as those who interfere by vio
lence with the relation of master and slave.
The recent affair at Harper's Ferry furnished
a strong illustration of praotioal Abolitionism
In its most hideous form. If there were Abo
litionists who would contribute money or
otherwise to make compensation to the master
for the terrloe of his slave and in considera
tion of the surrender of his title, he knew
there were thousands of ihem at the North.
Mr. Smith said he was well acquainted with
Mr. Clark, and did not believe there was an
Abolition feeling in his heart or a drop of Abo
lition blood in his veins. He said Mr. Booook
was not put up beoause he was an Administra
tion man, but because he had been long an
honored Democrat - He denounced the in consistency
of Mr. Clark's conduct in being
eleotedaa a Demoorat and refusing to act
with the parry.
Iv answer to an inquiry put by Mr. Clark,
whether tin Smith would deem it as good
ground for a dissolution of the Union If he
should find the people of the North combined
as a sectional party against the South, Mr.
Smith replied that whenever the combination
of a majority ig formed for the purpose of
waning on the constitutional rights of any
section of the Union, I am oat Applause.
Air. Clark So I am, sir, but you have not
answered my question. -"
Sir. Smith said he would not undertake to
say that it any particular man should be
elected President he would immediately favor
a dissolution of the Union. "Sufficient unto
the day ie the evil thereof." "v
v Mr. Curry, of Ala., made a lengthy speech
on Abolitionism. He did not propose to hold
the Republican party responsible for exoesses
committed by men holding anti-slavery opin
ions; he did not intend to charge that party
with complicity In the raid lately made into
Ylrstnla; he was willing to allow the mantle
of ignorance to cover the act of the signing of
a rvcammenuauon ot an tnoenuisry pamph
let; but he made this averment that the ideas,
piinoiples and politics of the Republican
party s re necessarily hostile to the Constitu
tion and the rights and interests of the South.
As for the recent invasion mads into Virginia,
although disavowed and repudiated, and, as
he had no doubt,honestly and conscientiously,
by most of tbe gentlemen on tbe other side,
was, in his judgment, the necessary, Iogioal
and inevitable sequence of their principles
and doctrines. He proposed to show the effect
and the necessity In consequence of this anti
slavery agitation and feeling.
The Republican party had been driven by
events into the assumption of doctrines from
whioh a few years ago they would have shrunk.
Mr. Curry referred to the law in some of the
States, giving negroes ths right of suffrage, to
the operation ef the underground railroad, and
to the frequent resistance of the Fugitive-slave
Law,' and argued that the South had good
reason to be under apprehension. He aekod
"If you had the power of the government to
abolish slavery, and render slave property in
secure, would yon not do it?" -
Sir. Kllgore, of Indiana No, not la the
Southern Btates.
Mr. Curry Why, in the free States, no leg
islation would be necessary on the tubjeot, but
yea would gradually narrow and limit our
ground until ail would have to flee front the
country of our occupanoy and residence. J I
say boldly that the animating principle of the
Republican party is opposition to the exten
sion of slavery in the Territories. This is the
ligament whioh binds the heterogeneous mass
together. Without that you would fall to
nieces at once. Governor Chase, in a recent
speech, had suggested that every Government
official should he a person Imbued with anti-
siavery doctrines, ana tnat tnat pnnoipie
should be one of the tests for getting appoint
ments. If the North elected Seward or Chase,
or any other member of the Republican party,
on a seotional platform, suoh an election was
to be resisted to the. disruption of every tie
which binds together tbia great Confederacy.
Applause from the Democratic beaches.
Mr. Curry referred to the recent Union de
monstrations at the North. He said that
though they were more or less qualifying as
evinolcg a returning sense of justice at the
North, yet they amounted to nothing. - They
were not the true index of puhllo opinion.
The test of public opinion was through the
ballot-box; and looking to this test he found
that New England stood here arrayed in a
solid phalanx against the constitutional rights
of the South ; that Naw York stood here with
but four or five representatives disposed to be
friend the South and Southern interests. The
same was true, in a greater or less extent, in
regard to Pennsylvania, Ohio and other States.
-When he looked at these Indications, he was
not to be lulled into security by demonstra
tions at Union meetings. . A
, The patriotic declarations and eloquent vin
dication of the Union, were but as the singing
of the Ciroe, the voice of the charmer charm
ing never so wisely, lulling the South and
driving the North in regard to thestupend
outness of the crisis. If they were earnest in
these declarations, let them give to the South
something practical, substantial and practica
ble ; let them, go home and repeal their per
sonal liberty bills,, their habeas corpus aots,
their mandamus acts. Let them execute the
Fngttive-alare Law ; " let them open their
prisons for the safe-keeping of fugitive slaves;
let them refuse contributions of money to olr-
oulate incendiary pamphlets at ths South ; let
them turn out of this hall and the Senate the
men who come to insult and stigmatize the
OUth. - i: ' :. .,- .
These would be Indications of public opinion
and tests of returning justices He would not
deny that there existed in his State serious
apprehensions in regard to the consequences
of this-ag.lte.tion. -There Were men at the
South, while wishing that this Government
might continue prosperous and happy, still
reoognised the faot that olouds and darkness
were gathering over the future,'-whioh only
the eye of the seer oould penetrate.1' Bis con
stituents looked solely to- the -Democracy of
the North as the National allies of tbe Con
stitution and the South. . .Admitting that bad
men had sometimes used the prestige of the
Democracy for ill, and had abused its confi
dence, still they must recolleot that it had been
fruitful of great names and great deeds in
war. , It had' been the country's friend in
peace, it had contributed largely to the coun
try's prosperity, and its disbsndment . now
would be a serious calamity. , .:. ' . -
In oritloal periods of the country's history,
it had been the savior of the Constitution and
the defender of the country's honor. Its prin
ciples had become part of our mental habi
tudes, and he trusted it - would be adequate to
the stupendous conflict ahead of us. ' -
If, said he, the Demoorats and our ' Ameri
can friends should not be able to interpose for
the seourity of the South and the protection
of the Constitution, I shall-counsel the people
of my State to offer most effectual resistance,
and shall urge them to fling themselves back
on their reserved rights and upon the inalien
able sovereignty of the State to which I owe
my first and last allegiance. Applause from
the Democratic benches and galleries. - 11 - -
Mr. Kellogg, of Illinois I. would do an In
sult to my feelings and sense of propriety if I
did not take tbe earliest opportunity to make
an apology to this House lor the much to be
regretted occurrence whioh took place in this
hall yesterday. It was an offense to its
dignity, a breach of its harmony and decorum,
and for It I tender to this body my regrets
and my apology. - - .
Mr. Logan, of : Illinois After what has
been said by my worthy oolleague, I conoeive it
to be my duty to say to this House that, if in
the excitement of yesterday I violated any of
the rules of this House, or Its deoorum, I
