thi Hum. A farmer named John L. York,
residing near Augusta, in Bracken County,
Kentucky, having; for some time past, as he
thought, had reason to doubt the ohastity of
his wife, went hunting on Thursday last,
telling his son, a little boy of ten cr twelve
years of age, to meet him at a certain time
and place for the purpose of carrying home
what game he might have killed while he
visited a neighbor. The boy kept the ap
pointment, but found his father dead, having
plaeed the muzele of his gun against his
breast and discharged its contents Into his
neart.
This Wiathib. and thi Wik.-The weather
was coot at the beginning, bnt has been quite
mild during the latter part of the week, and
we have now lost nearly all traoei of winter.
The sky la blue, the sun warm and the air
genial..
Business haa been very aotive, especially
among Pork-operators, and the retail trade
animated. Our large hotels have been less
thronged, however, than for two or three weeks
previous, as Is usual a little before the ho 11
days. ... - -
All amusements have been fairlv attended.
bat the Opera-house haa been the center of
attraction, tuough stars have been playing at
the theaters. The leotures and conoerts have
also hada fair share of patronage.

can be more appropriate than a book, and no
book more elegant and tasteful than Messrs.

have now on their shelves, specially selected
for the holidays. We looked through R., U. 3c
Co.'a handsome and spaoloas store yesterday,
and were compelled to admire many of the
volumes we saw mere, rich in binding and
gilding, absorbing in oon tents and beautiful In
illustration. -a 1 ;. , .,. -
The books can not fall to gratify all tastes,
as will be believed after a glance at their ad
vertisement in to-day's issue. Some of the
volume are models of tviiotrranhv and mir

proper, ana pernapt only proper present to

were unanimously passed:
"Wmrbas, B. Fr'azer and his daughter,
Mrs. Thomas, daring a course of leotures, have
been able to produce the various phenomena
of the so-called Spiritualism, such as answer

the Interrogator's thoughts, and exhorting a
characteristic influence over mind and matter;
therefore, -

XXXVIth CONGRESS—1st SESSION.
WASHINGTON, December 16.
motion of Mr. Nibluok, of
inu., it wareaoivu that till the election or speaker
the Olerk of the last House be authorized to exercise
the power devolving on the Speaker, for preserving
order In the gall. riea and on the floor of the llouae,
for the time being, under the ruleaof the laat House,
and that the Sergeant-at-Arma, for a like purpose,
be under the directions of the Clerk.
Mr. Bonbam, of S.O., aaid that th whole country
was anxiously looking to tha aaoet nf affair, here.
and inquiring why we did not elect a Speaker, the
reaton woe that the maiorltv of tba Honae waa un
willing to place in that chair an indoraer of the
Infamous Helper book, and deem themselves justi
fied in resisting his eleotlon by all fair and honorable
moans, ue nao noming to say against Mr. Sherman
yeraonally, but referred to lilra politically, and cor
ially aaaented to the resolution that neither he nor
any other man Who indereed Helper's book was At tn
be Speaker. It was a fatal error when the Missouri
uouiproimse waa accepted tor tne south, tor It baa

lie referred to Mr. llkktimn m a renegade to hie
pauy. nnenuevoieu ior tne uiuuings motion to
resist the Senate bill for th admission of Kansaa.
every one auppoed he would finally land on the
Republican aide, although he haa aince claimed to be
a Democrat; Ills vote yesterday for Mr. Sherman set
tled the question that he is not iongor a Democrat.
It lied been sought to elect a Speaker by tho plurality
rule, which he believed unconstitutional, for the
reason that none but a majority could electaSpeaker.
It had been said that there were precedents for ita
adoption, but the circumstnncca were different then
from what they are now. Mr. Baiika had not retimed
as had Mr. Sherman to repudiate the Infamous teach
ings of Helper's book for the abolition of slavery and
for Insurrection.
In reply to Mr. Hickman, he said the South had
the right to carry Slavery Into the common territo
ries, and have it protected like other property by
territorial law, and not refusing to afford that pro
tection by positive hostile enactment. Th South,
while denying the right of Congress or of the ter
ritorial legislature to abolish, prohibit, or establish
Slavery In the territories, claim that It Is ths duty of
Congress tnd th territorial authorities (0 protect It
while therisJ ' :
He replied to Mr. Nelson mora, he said, in sorrow
than In anger, and refuted the common cant that
President Jackson put down nullification. He also
defended South Carolina and her oouri at that
period.
Thatgentleman(Nelson) had spoken of the Union
a more Important than the Constitution, bnt those
whom he ( Bouham) represented look to every part
of tbe Constitution aa more important than th
Pnloh.
The gentleman from Pann. (Hickman) had atioken
of forcing tho South back Into the Union, ahonld
she prefer to retire, but whenever it is found expe
dient to do so, ths Union no louger exists, He said,
, without hesitation, that on the election of Mr. Sew
ard or any other man who indorses hi claim and
holds to ths eentlmettte declared by Seward, call the
party by what name you pleaae, ha waa in favor of
Immediate disunion, and be thought heapok the
aentimenta of hia entire State.
How, then, could it be expected that Southern gen
tlemen will coneent to th election of Mr Sherman,
who comae here reeking from th pollution of doc
trinaa advera to Southern interest? The reolutloa
of Mr. Clark, of Mo., waa proper under tbeaeclrcnm
stances, and he told gentlemen that they would pre
serve th Institution of alavery or perish in the en
dearer. HI patriotism began at home, and he was
for South Carolina againat the world.
Mr. Millaon made an explanation, denying that he
ever said that any man who Indorsed Helper's book
waa unfit to live.
Mr. Clemens, of Va., wanted the House to proceed
to a vote for Speaker, and objected to gentlemen be
ing compelled to ait here for five houra in order to
give their brethren an opportunity to ventilate their
rhetoric. He gave notice that he ahould retire from
the hall whenever he waa physically disabled from
attendance. If he oould not get a pair, hi friends
would have to do without a vote.
The Olerk stated that, having been empowered by
the Heuae to suppress disorder, both on tne floor and
in tbe galleries, be ahould discharge bis duty, but
hoped no case wonld arise compelling him lo exer
cise tbe authority tho conferred.
Mr. Himms, of Kentucky, said Brown' foray Into
Virginia had been followed by a crusade against the
right of the whole South. Ho would speak plainly,
and tell the gentlemen of the other aid that from
the very foundation of the Government there had
been a diseased public sontiment In the North on th
enbjeot of slavery. He spoke of continued aggro,
alone of the Republican party on the Month. The
Republican numbermore than on hundred men on
thi floor; men of character and influence who have
ought on tb stump and elsewhere to diffuse opin
ion practically leading to the nullification of the
Fugitive Slav Law and bring contempt on the Su
preme Court, because it haa declared Congress has no
power to restrict slavery or exclude It from new Ter
ritories. The balance of power In the United States Senate,
once deemed a safe-guard by th South, haa bean
loat,and Northern preponderance will be atlll fur
ther Increased by tbe adm lesion of other new States.
Nothing ia now left between th South and her aa
aailanta but the Democratic party and the Constitu
tion of the Uuited State aa expounded by th Su-
Kreme Court. Th Abolition party in tb North
aving failed to reach alavery In the South by direct
legislation, have sought to overthrow it by Insurrec
tion, by keeping up constant robbery and theft on
that apeciea of property at the South: scattering In
oendiary documente throughout the land; and have
elevated to the hlgheat public truat men who pro
claim that there la an irrepressible conflict between
alave and free labor. Ue was no dlsuntonist, but
wonld ask, is there to be no end to these asaanlt on
th South? Were they to bow their necka like cen
quorad provlncea-be despoiled of their property
without redreaa? If the Union' 1 to b preserved
there must be a cessation of these wronga on tha
South.. Ue proceeded to reply to Mr. Hickman's re
ntal ks about the Bonth violating th Compromlast.

remonstrated time and again, and have all the time

a trusty but very wilful boy. An unci of Coppie',

seemed in much distress at the sad fate which awaited
his relative. Thi wan Hie condition of the town, the

At a quarter poet eight o'clock, last evening, tha
tvloil town waa thrown into a commotion bv tue re

thing that has yet occurred durlugour iY1"- memora
ble era of military occupation. In a few nilnniee the
atreeta anu aonues or. (lie inwn were in poaaeesion
of armed men, and It iviw with some difllculty that
the cause of All this turmoil could be ascertained,
ilumora were afloat of every description, and it waa
at one time (huugh( that the prisoners had over
powered their guards and made (heir etcupe ; and
then that an attack had been made by partite nt
tamptlug ta rescue the priaoneri.
To-day at (he execution the bodies of the negroes,
alter being cut down, were placed In poplar coAina
and carried back to the jail. They will be interred
to-morrow on thespotwherathearallowinowsland,
though there is a party of medical students here
from Winchester who will doubtless not allow them
to remain there long. At about quarter to twelve
o'clock notice waa given to Cook and Coppie that
their time was approaching, only one hour more be
ing allowed. The military movement,' similar to
tlios at the rat execution, were repeated, and a
wagon with two more coffins waa standing at the
door of th jail. At half'past twelve Ibe aame mili
tary escort was iu readinees; iuthe moanlime the
closing religious ceremonies were progressing iu the
cell. Since the failure of the attempt of Cook and
Coppie to escape last night, their assumed composure
and apparent resignation had given away, aud they
now looked at the reality of their fate with the full
conviction of It awful certainty.
, They were reserved and rather quiet, but joined
with fervor In the religious ceremonies conducted hy
tho Rev. Messrs, North, Lehr aud Weughv When
called upon by the Sheriff they stood calm and quietly
while their arms were being pinioned, and aftor bid
diug farewell lo tbe guards of the jail were belped
Into the wagon and took their teats on Iheir coffins.
f beir appearance was rather of hopeless doapalr
ban of resignation, and (hey teemed to take lint
littl notice of anything aa the procession moved
alowly on the Held of death.
' The wagon reached the scaffold at thirteen mln ntes
before one o'clock, and the prisoners ascended with
a determined firmness, scarcely surpassed by that of
Capt. Brown. A brief prayer was offered by one of
(he clergymen.
The ropes were adjusted, the cap drawn over their
heads, aud both were launched Into eternity (even
minutes after they had ascended the scaffold. They
both exhibited tbe most unHlnohiag firmness, say
ing nothing with the exception of bidding farewell
(o the ministers and Sheriff. After the rope was ad
justed about Cook' neck, he exclaimed, "be quick,

After banging about thirty minutes, both bodies
were taken down and placed in black walnut coffins
prepared for them; that of Cook wa then placed in a
poplar box, libelled and directed aa follow:;" Ashbel

N. Y. Care of Adam' Kxpreaa."
Th 00IH11 of Coppie waa placed In a similar box, to
