commented on the course of Senator uouglas. Ills
colleague(irarnsworth) had declared, in substance,
that be would ratker see any other man than Senator

Mr. Farnaworth -Will senator Douglas support tbe

on which he will not stand himself? Will he sustain
a platform which does not recognise his (Douglas's)
doctrines, that tbe people of the Territories might
legislate on slavery?
, air. Fonke would tell the South that Senator Doug

Mr. Farnsworth-On any platform?
Mr. Fouke-He would give his support against the

State Convention of Illinois had declared that the)
would sustain the nominee of tbe Charleston Oon
vention. Tbe Douglas men stand between the ex

indorsed or repudiated the sentiments of Went
worth? Mr. farnsworth replied-SofarasWentworth runs
parallel between the Southern flllibuster, or slave
trade pirates, and John Brewn, I indorse him. Fo
far as lie Indorses the act of Brown in bis Incursion
Into Virginia. I do not indorse him.
He asked Mr. Fouke whether Southern slave
trading pirates ware not as bad as Browa, and de
served the same punishment.
Mr. Fouke-Trv them by law, and punish pirate,
r anybody else, Iiortu or South, Kost or West, upon
the high seas, everywhere, who violates law. I stand
by the Constitution aad the laws of the land.
Mr. Fouke proceeded to state that the Kopublican
party had no sympathy with foreigners, bat have de
luded them, and as soon as they havedonewlth them,
tbey will not only put them opou an eauality wih the
negro, but go farther ignore them altogether in
pelltlcal action. He referred to a conversation be
tween Governor Seward, of Hew York, and Governor
Snilth.ot Virginia. In 1847 and 1x48, as reported in the
Congressional Globe. Mr. Smith, of Virginia, nar
rated tbe conversation referred to aa well as he could
recollect it. The substance of it was. that, while'ie
was Governor of Virginia, be was sitting in tbe Coun
cil Chamber one day, when a stranger entered and
announctd himself as ilr. Seward, of New York
A conversation ensued, in the course of which Mr.
Seward remarked that they were going to allow all to
vote in New York, negroes as well as whites.
To that be (Smith) replied, that ir they had no ob
jections to free negroes in New York, they would
send them a certain number In every packet from
Mr. Seward said he had no objection to that-thej
would receive them with pleasure. They had much
trouble with Irishmen and the Irish vote. A good
deal of money had to be used at election times to se
cure tbem, and the rascals would take their money
and vote agalnBt them; but they had no sach trouble
with the colored people.
In reply to that be (Smith) then told him that he
would be very happy to receive an equal number of
honest-hearted Germans and Irish in exchange for
all the negroes sent to New York.
Mr. Fouke, resuming, said that the Bepuhlican
8 arty was not yet ready to engraft that creed upou
lew York. They were net yet done with the foreign
Sir. Smith, of Va, obtained the Boor, bnt yielded
tor fifteen minutes to Dir. Farnsworth to reply to bin
Mr. Farnsworth said that John Brown was dead,
and they made ne issue about tbe recent affair at
Hai par's Ferry, which tbe Republican party no
wuere lador-ed. So far as the Republican pai t) Wit
concerned, they did not believe in the social and no.
iltical equality of tbe negro or any other equality, so
far as Illinois was concerned. Iu tbe State of e
York the negro was permitted to vote, and in the
State of Teuaesnee he was permitted to vote bat a
few years ago. He thought that when the Hon. Oori
Johnson was a member of Congress,, be himselt
avowed that be was indebted to that class ol votes

What member was that ? .

Mr. Louan la there in vour district no diatinntlon

Mr. Farnrworth did not know. So far as the quo,

Mr Smith, of Virginia, then proceeded to address
the House. In consequence of the course of a remark
indulged In by the gentleman from Pennsylvania,
(Grow,) he felt It his duty to take hia part in the
debate. When the House assembled it was upon the
heels of a remarkabl incident that aroused tha publio
mind and brought about a revolution that startled
the country with ama.ttinent. It was seen that
sixty-sight members of the last Congress, besides
numerous other gentlemen of the highest position
bad indorsed a pamphlet known aa the Helper pam
phlet, Inaugurating a crusade ef blood, murder,
treason andlnsurrectlon against one of tit largest
sections of the Union. What ha3 been the first
developments ? One of the very gentlemen who had
indorsed the hook had been put in nomination as
presiding officer of the Houae That presiding
officer must sustain the most intimate personal and
social relations necessarily with the members over
whose deliberations he presides, and he asked tbe
House and the country If they would rightfully and
trnly perform thatgraat social and political duty by
electing that man to preside over this body. He put
the question here and be desired the country to un
derstand, if. they nay have the power by force of
numbers to put a man. who is a murderer, a robher.
a man who proclaims nis deadly hostility to one-half
of the TJulou, In that chair. Bnt I ask them if it
right, If thsy will stand aa the representatives
Constitutional liberty en this floor?
Mr. Sherman (with composure, but signs of a gath
ering storm t1 de.lre to k now If the gentleman from
Vlrglulaapplies these words to me?
Mr. Smith (quickly) I am illustrating. I did not
say the gentleman Is a murderer; I have no such
thought and I was abont to say so, aud it would have
come with more grace than from an interruption.
Mr Sherman (with a satisfied air) I misunder
stood the gentleman. . ...
Mr. Smith (Imperiously)-! was Illustrating.
Would von vote for a murderer?

members on this floor. ' It ImMaehea tha honor of
every man on this side of the House, and I ask the
gentleman to recall it. T
Mr. BuittU (Hruilyi When I have any thing to
recall, 1 will do it without belug asked. (Applause
in tbegallerls. If the gentleman will just keep cool
be will perhaps fare all the better. 1 charged ni
body with beingmurderers or robbers npon this floor;
but 1 do charm that when we came here we f..iinn
sixty-eight members of the last Congress many of
mem now nere aia loaoraea pampniei.accoraing to
what be hada right to believe and sunnoatht
just as bad and as damnable, Cries of "(joodlV and
applause In the galleries.
i ne uierx saia ne gave notice yetteruay that ir the
rales of tbe House were again violated by this ap
plause in the galleries, he would call npon the officers
ot the House to suppiess it. In accordance there
with, he called upon theSergeant-at-Arms aud Door
keeper to perform their doty. -
Here ensued a scene of considerable confusion
many members crying out, "Clear the galleries,"
while others hoped that such a course would not by
pursued. In the galleries a coinmol ion oonld be ob
served, and oue middle-aged respectable gentleman
exclaimed loudly, "I will leave it," and made hia
way through tbe dense throng, while tbe Sergeant-at-Arms
passed np at a rapid pace ont of the main
door of the House to intercept him. Finally order
was ma turea.
The Clerk stated that it was not bis intention tu

mr. anna saio. ne was proceeaing to illustrate tne
position that had been taken by the Democrats,
and bad used strong ngores of speech for tbe parpoaf
of making it in a way from which there conld be nv
escape, ana to vinoicate tne democratic side or the
House bom the aspersions cast upon tbem from time

der the circumstances to which be adverted, It a
their duty to raise the question which was raised by
the gentleman from Missouri, (Clark,) and he wan
kiari to see that the honorable eantlaman frnm Tnv,
showed a becoming sensibility. He knew how he,
(Onrtls,) felt upon that subject, nor did he mean in
any sense to intimate that the gentleman would do
auj-iuiug uiBuuuuraoie, nut ne put tne question
whether he would vote fore man for presiding offi

Curtis replied that the gentleman knew he
WOUld not. and be bellamil h knew that thahnnnr.
able member nominated would not sanction an)
assault upon tbe rights of Virginia, or any othei
State. - :..- ., .
uo misunderstood tho gentleman when he put
the proposition, but still he rnuld not aniimi. th,
gentleman seriously believed that any Republican

into this Home any one ho would propose or at
tempt to Indorse any book like that ref.rwd t i. m
countenance such an outraan aa that nf .Tnhn Rrn.t.
in Virginia or any where else, one of the greatesi
crimes on earth. He did not blame him, however '
mr oaiiug .ub q waiiuns, as ne aia it lor tne purpose
of drawing Irom the gentleman nominated a de
nial of all intention of Indorsing such senti
ments. Mr. Smith said that svery sort of atrocity waa re
commended against thefave-holders. Did not the
gentleman know it?
Mr. Curtis-I am told it contains Infamous mat

Mr. Smith Well, Sir, your candidate signed It
He wai surprised that tie gentleman from Ten
nessee should have fallen Into iIia
that Mr. Sherman had disclaimed the atrocities oi

where he got his information.
Mr. Nelson said his recollection was that Mr. Slier
man had declared he HA not annrovn nf tli w.rin..
of Helper's book,

then proceeded to read the explanation of Mr. Sher
man, being frequently requested by Mr. Grow to con
tinuetill he had read tbe whole of Mr.MiermauV
remarks. Did he disclaim the doolrinesof tbe Helper
book? I ask It here in the presence of the candidate
of that side of the House.doss that gentleman disclaim
the doctrines of the Helper book? I askithe gentle
maa, does be disclaim the doctrine, of that book as
read here? A pause.) The gentleman is dumb, he i
silent. I desire to gel the gentleman to speak; he U
silent: dumb as an oyster, langhUr, and the gentle
man from Pennsylvania wants to ipeak for him. '
Mr. Grow salt! hp only wanted a correct statement!
Mr. Nelson thought it proper to say that when Mr,
Sherman had disavowed any Intention to Interfere
with slavery In tbe States, he considered that he
(Shirmanhad repuplated the ultra doctrines of the
book. That was the way he understood him.

there was no election, Mr, Sherman wanting four.
