SATURDAY EVENING DISPATCHES.
XXXVIth CONGRESS—1st SESSION.
WASHINGTON, December 17.
HOUSE. Mr. Larrabee. of Wis., tent to tbo
Clerk's table the Mllwaukle Free Democrat,
from whloh the latter read theprooesdings of
a meeting purporting to be held by the German
adopted oltitens, In which sympathy is ex
pressed for John Brown, holding him ss
noble-hearted and resolute, and fit to be held
up by the friends and champions of freedom
icr tne imitation or mankind) also savin;'
that adopted eltlsens are hostile to tyranny of
every kind. Mr. Larrabee remarked that if
any of his colleagues did not reoognlie that
paper as Republican, let them say so. At his
request an editorial was resd In the same pa
per, in spirit wttn the proceedings or tbo
meeting. He wae satisfied that an honorable
Senator from Wisconsin (Doollttle) was mis -taken
when he aatd that there was no newspa
per In that State whloh supported and sustained
John Brown's invasion of Virginia. Ho
thought, however, that at the time the fact to
whien ne had just referred had not been
brought to Mr. Doolittle's attention. Mr.
Larra bee needed not be informed, as he had
been by tbe leading German oitlsens of Wis-
oontln, that such were not their opinions. He
had been in the midst of them for fourteen
vears, and could say that a more intelligent,
loyal and patriotic set of men were not living
on the soil of the United States. Thsy wero
hostile to fanaticism, and to sentiments of die-
union and war. In the South. He felt it to bo
his duty to hurl baok accuaationa against that
part or Wisconsin he bad tbe boner to repre
sent. Hs was surprised to hear that gentle
men charged the present Administration with
corruption and extravagance. He thought
the President was entitled to all praise.
No man should visit his mere personal slight h
In his . party beeauae he might have been
omitted In the paltry distribution of Federal
orrises; we all agree that the Republican party
organisation at tne in or in ia a purely aectionsi
party, and that the inevitable result of the suc
cess of any. seotional party in the country
must ne a rupture or the union, ibis is tbe
very state of things wbloh Washington warned
us against In his Farewell Address a great
party built on geographical lines.
He thought Mr. Seward's remarks renneot-
lag the Irrepressible conflict, originated in hia
ambition to reach the' Presidential chair,
thinking an appeal, to seotional passions and
prejudices the best way to reach it.
. He never had any doubts but that the raid
x)f John Brown was the ' legitimate effect of
tne teaobings of tbe extreme section of the
itepubiioan party North; the teachings ot the
Tniutx, Wendell Phillips and others. Ho
had heretofore thought a dissolution of the
Union Impossible, but now ventured to say
that, If Northern men persist in their eourse,
and the South react against the North, the
dissolution may not be a question, but may
be here now, and the first act may produce
tbe calamity. Mr, Larrabee then reviewod
Mr. Seward's "irrepressible conflict" doctrine.
He never heard, on this floor or on the stump,
Republicans denouncing Abolition aentiments.
It appeared to him that the oonfliotwas not be
tween different kinds of labor, but botwoen
different races of men. He did not believe in
the unity of the .human race. If the slaves
were free, what could be done with them? The
forth dontwant them. . i : i .
A call of the House was then' ordered pre
liminary to' a vote for Speaker. The result
was as follows: Serman 111; Bocook 85; Bote
ler 23; scattering 9. Necessary to a choice, lift.
I Another ballot was taken, resulting as fol
lows: Sherman 110: Bocook 84; Boteler 1 5;
George Brlggs 9, remainder scattering. The
House the adjourned.

Harper's Frrrt, December 17. Various
surmises have been indulged in regarding the
attempted eacapeof Cook and Coppie. It was
said that Cook refused to tell how he came by
tbe kntre, and also that he bad the counter
sign whereby he would bare been enabled to
Sass the sentinel. This, however, needs eon
rmation, and is hardly reliable. Muoh in
dignation was expressed by some of the head
strong in reference to the officials of the jail,
but a large majority of our eitisens express
confidence in them, and spurn the Idea that
tbey were bribed by thefriends cf Cook. The
hole made In the wail was a large one, and the
room was in the second story. Cook, after his
capture, said to a gentleman that they had
done the best they could: that Ufa was as
sweet to them as any one else, and that thsy
had planned It for ten days. They had set
Tuesday night for the attempt, but it was de
ferred on account of their not wishing te com
promise Governor Willard, who was In town
that night. The prisoners conversed en' a
variety of subjects yesterday morning.
Cook said to a gentleman who addressed
him that he fully believed slavery to be a sin,
and that he believed it would be abolished in
Virginia In leas than ten years, and by the
people of Virginia. He was prepared to die
in such a cause, and thought he had done
nothing to regret, as far as principle was con
cerned. Coppie said that he feared the affair
was not ended yet, that they had friends in
the North who would not rest satisfied until
their lives were avenged. He hoped, how
ever, the affair would end here forever.

adhering to the nomination of Mr. Booock.
He preferred by far an Anti-Leoomptlon men

Mr. Stevenson, of Ky., spoke In favor of tbs
Democrats maintaining their present position.
Mr. Cox, of Ohio, spoke to the same affect,
ne was unwilling te vote for any Know Noth
ing, or any man supported by them, unlet
that man be a Democrat; but he was willing,
at the proper time, to vote for an Antl-La-oompton
Democrat, when It could be shown
that he eould be elected.
Mr. Montgomery, of Penn., took a different
view, thinking that there might be a union
between national men, Americana and Demo
orats, so effected as to orush out sectionalism.
Hs thought it dangerous that Republicanism
should have tbe patronage of the Capitol..
Mr. Harris, of Vs., made an earnest appeal
to stand by Democratic principles and men.
He would not ask Northern Democrats te make
such a sacrifice as to vote for a Southern Amer-
Mr. Garnett Interrupted Harris by stating
that a member of the American party had in
formed him that he was as willing to vote for
Mr. Bocook as any other Democrat.
. Mr. Craig, of Mo., after some remark,
moved that a Committee of three be appointed
to confer with a minority of tbe House on tbo
subject of the organisation.

Mr. Dejarnett, of Va., explained why he,

was any chance for him,
Mr. Clemeus, of Va., offered tbe following
resolution, wbioh was merely read for Informa
Keeoked. Thai it Is our dutv to adhere to tbo
nomination heretofore made in caucus until
such time as it is demonstrable that some other
person can seoure the whole vote recorded,
and an additional vote sufficient to elect him,
and that then, and In that event the committee
heretofore appointed, are hereby authorised to
pall another meeting for the purpose of con

It was intended to test the Democratic mem

that the Government has undertaken to ad
vance, without interest, a turn of twenty-two
and a half million of guilders, to be refunded
by terms, the last term st the expiration of
six years, to several railroad companies for
the building of projected roads. Tbe Govern
ment has also resolved to undertake, without
delay, tbe execution of a canal from Amster

this last undertaking will be productive of
very great commercial advautages.
j Aa Inpdstriovs Dukx and fivoasss. The
late Duchess of Bedford, for thirty years of
her married life, lit her own fire, made some
tea for herself and Duke, and then, as he wrote
his own letters or business, sbe oopied tnem,
and they eame down to a large ' party
of guests at ten o'clook, to dispense breakfast
without saving one word of their matuttnarr
avooatlons; so that one might have been a
visitor in the house .without finding out that
the Duke and the Duchess had transacted tbe

their guests bad risen.
! Strawsrrrirs in Sar Fraroisoo. A late
number of the San Francisco Herald says: The
good people of the East will not be a little
'surprised to learn that at the moment our
markets abound with the largest, Inest, and
most luxurious - strawberries, grown in the'
iopen air, within a short distance of San Fran
j Cisco. Strawberries of the most gorgeous ap
pearance, and averaging from an inch to an
inch and a half in diameter, with a flavor and
juiciness unsurpassed. . : ' ?
Land-Birds Ssskiro a Sra Votaor. A
vessel whloh arrived recently from Rio Grande,
while six hundred miles from land, was visited
by a woodcock, and every morning until it
reached port, by hundreds of birds, including
robins, black, blue and yellow birds, sparrows,
a thrush, a hawk and an owl. v It is supposed
the birds were driven off the eoast by late
heavy North-west winds. When they reached
the vessel they were completely exhausted.
