duct, and was challenged for cause. The ohargewas,
thit he had solicited Mr. P, Mohr, a prosecuting
witness against Jacob Green, accused of grand lar
ceny, to leave the city telling him that all expenses
he should be at, even to th amount of $1,000, would
be paid. It was also ahown that Adler had mad ap
plication to the Deputy Sheriff and Clerk of the
Court to be placed on the Orand Jury, and that he
had stated to some of his brother jurors that the
prosecution against Qreen was malicious.
Judge Carter said that the conduct of this Grand
J uror evinced ignorance, or what was worse, corrup-tion-which
often flowed from ignorance. By his
conduct he had also committed a flagrant contempt
of Court. Be should, of course, be dismissed from
tha Orand Jnry, and a pure man sammoned In his
place. Tor the contempt he was sentenced to twenty
days Imprisonment in the County Jail; bnt on appli
cation of Judge Hpooner the sentence of Imprison
ment was permitted to remain open until the follow
ing (this) dap, that the accused might have an op
portunity of purging himself of the contempt.

Police Court. Judge Lowe examined
twenty-seven oases yesterday morning, of
wnicn tne following were the most Important:
A woman named Matilda Herron, who was
arrested for stealing a blanket and a pair Of
gloves, from tne offloe of Dr. Jfries, on the cor
ner of Eighth and Vine, was deemed guilty
and sentenced to the County Jail for a term
of three months.
Julia Dye was examined upon a charge of
harboiing lewd women, and sentenoed to pay
a fine of $50 and undergo imprisonment In
the City Prison for twenty days.
The case of John Fisher, who has been
several times before the Police Court upon a
single oharge of digging up the bowldered
pavement on Western-row, was dismissed upon
the pay ment of $5 and costs.
A olothier, named Ellas Deloune, was
charged wich committing an assault upon a
colored man, named Pate. It appears that
Pate went into his establishment and seleoted
a ooat and hat, whioh ha wished laid aside
for him, intending to call and pay for them at
another time. Deloune insisted that he should
pay for them at once; but this he was unable
to do, as he had not money enough, but he
said he wonld pay for tha hat, the price of
wnion was $1 20. Alter tne oiotnier received
the money, he refused to let the purohaser
have the hat until he had paid for the coat,
whereupon harsh words arose and blows fol
lowed, oausicg the arrest of Deloune. Be
was fined $S and costs, aud ordered to return
Pate tha money he bad given for the hat. '
Ohittart. Miss Eliza O'Reilly, a most es
timable and excellent lady, for some years en
gaged in this city as a sohool-teacher, who
left here last autumn for her homeiu Ireland,
where she had many influential relatives and
friends, we deeply regret to hear, died a short
time after her arrival in that country. Though
she might have lived in ease and lnxurv iu
her native land, she quitted it to seek her own
fortune in the Now World, and fell a viotimto
her love of independence; as the intensity of
our Amerioan Bummers caused tne illness that
at last proved fatal. : .
A most worthy and benevolent lady, pos
sessed of a fine mind and generous heart, she
lost no opportunity to benefit by her counsel
or her charity, all who were within her reach.
She gained many friends In our city, who will
be deeply pained to bear of her death at the
very time she had reached a home where full
compensation would have been granted for all
the trials and privations she had endured.
Her struggle for independence was noble, bat
its severity cost her her life at the period when
life began to be dear to her again. i

Mr. Chandler introduoad a bill making ap

bors in Michigan. ...
Mr. Toombs presented a petition of the
oi linens of Ascousion Parish, Louisiana, on the
subject of the Uonmas land grant. He moved
its reference to the Committee on Public
Lands. As Chairman of the Committee or.
Private Lands, be felt embarrassed bv the
charges made against him in connection wit!
Mr. Johnson, of Arkansas, opposed lti
reference to the Committee on Pablie Lands.
It did not belong there, and he was opposed
to takiog business from one Committee and
giving it to another.
A desultory debate followed, in which Mr.
Benjamin stated that he had no objection to it'
reference to the Committee en Private Land
Claims. The oharges were too absurd to give
him a moment's concern, but aa his motivei,
had been impugned he thought it had better go
to the Judtoiary Committee.
JTlnally, on motion of Mr. Toombs, it was
referred to a select commiltee of five.
Mr. Hemphill presented the credentials of
Lewis T. Wigfall aa Senator from Texas, and
he waa duly sworn.
jar. Davis, from the Committee on Military
Affairs, moved for; the printing of 10,000 co
pies of the report of Major Mordecai and Del
afield, on the fortifioation in the Crimea, for
the use of the Department, and also 2,000

Un motion of Mr. Mason, a resolution was
adopted that the Senate hereafter meet at one
o'clock, until tho House is organised. Yari
ous reports, resolutions and bills, of no gene
ral interest, were appropriately disposed of.
Mr. Mason said the word servile, which he
had applied to 8tates where slavery did not
exist, waa yesterday oritioised by the Senator
from Wisconsin. He used the expression de
liberately, and thought it drew the true dis
tinction between the States where slavery did
exist, and those where there are no slave.
In common parlance the States were called
free and tlave, and those among whom ho
lived had never taken offense at the denomina
tion. He did not know how exception could
be taken. He might have referred to the
Democratic party in the free States, to whom
perhaps the term might some times be prop
Mr. Harlan, of Iowa, discussed the Presi
dent's Message, the slavery question, nnd the
power of Congress, at great length, and hav
ing a colloquy with Mr. Pugh. Mr. H. con
tended that the Republicau policy was, in
fact, to give the Territories to the white men
of the United States; that the white race could
live anywhere, and that tho negro did no;
flourish in the United States. He denounced
the holding of slaves for gain; he did not hato
a holder of slaves, whose sinoere object it wu 1
to benefit them and improve their condition.
Mr. Foster, of Connecticut, contended that
the slavery question was first agitated by th-
Senator from Virginia and by the President
in his Message.
He thought, although there were wrongs
and outrages done in Mexico toward A meri
can cititens. Yet this was an undue time t-
redress them, while oitizens women too in
slave States were persecuted for opinion sake,
and similar treatment shown toward all
northerners without distinction. Remedy tho
wrongs inflicted by Mormons on citizens in
Utah. Protect the Indians, whom the Secre
tary of the Interior so manfully had an
nonnced to bo oppressed. As a .Republican
President will be eleoted in a year, he pre
ferred to wait a year. The war making power
should not be conferred on tha President.
HOUSE. Mr. Washburne, of 111., called
attention to a letter he had received from 1,
contractor In Rockville, III., in whioh tho
writer states that the state of things existing,
owing to the failure to pay the mail contrac
tors, can not be imagined. Mr. Washburne
wished to Bay to the contractors that he did
not consider himself responsible for their dis
tress. He washed his hands of aU responsi
bility. No speeohes bad been mado by his
aide of the house. They desired an organisa
tion. Mr. Barksdale asked whether the gentlemen
would now agree to the proposition for tem
porary organization, in order that the bill
oould be passed.
Mr. Washburne replied that when Mr. Hous
ton offend the resolution, he (Washburne)
proposed to All the blank with the name of
John Sherman, but the Democrats objected.
Mr. Houston showed the insecurity of Mr.
Washburne and hi) friends. Ho treated hn
(Washburne's) proposition with the scorn and
contempt it deserved. The gentleman in
tended to defeat the object of his (Houston's)
resolution, and for him to read the letter was
adding insult to injury.
Mr. Washburne The gentleman proposed
to elect a temporary Speaker, and left a blank
In the resolution for the insertion of a name.
Why did he not accept that of Mr. Sherman.
Mr. Houston Why would not the gentlo
man accept that of Mr. Booock or Mr. Mallory.
He had said that if the House would agree to
this resolution he would propose to fill the
blank with some individual whose name had
not been oonneoted with the contest and against
whom there could have been no serious objec
tions. He wanted to act in good laith.
Mr. Stevens asked Mr. Houston whether at
the same time he wanted to include a Clerk.
Mr. Houston replied that it was necessary
the present Clerk should act until his succes
sor is appointed. The gentlemen do not
mean to pay the contractors) they want to

Mr. Hardeman rose to a question of privi
lego. He understood Mr. Cox to say that thero
are Southern oppositionists on this- floor in
alliance with the Black Republicans. '
Mr. Cox explained. He said the other day
that he believed there was an affinity between
them. Before Congress met he saw in -the
Riohmond Whig and Louisville Journal, jind
other journals of the Amtrioan party, a strong
desire for a union of the Opposition. Ha it
not been for old Ossawatomie Brown, they
would have been united In the organization of
the House. ... .
Mr. Hardeman wished to say distinctly,
that there Is no alliance, or no affinity, be
tween the Sonthern Oppositionists and th
Black Republicans. It was proper when the
charge was made that it should be den od,
and, as an humble representative, so far at ha
was concerned, be pronounced the obtrg
false. . -. , 4f , 1

The river continues to decline at this point,

It'esterday's St. Louis paper contain nothing of
interest. Business at this Landing was still sus
pended; nly one boat having arrived and non de
parted on Tueaday last,
Stsiit Railboads. Some months since,
when the proposition for street railroads was
first mentioned in our city, it attracted little
attention, as it was extremely doubtful
whether any company could be found willing
to assume the risk of their construction.
Times, however, have changed. The experi
ment has been tried, and accompanied with
eminent success in Cincinnati, and now the
difficulty is that there are too many aspirants,
more than can be accommodated with routes,
desirous of becoming invested with a franchise
that promises to be immediately not only re
munerative, but lucrative. The people, too,
desirous of enjoying the conveniences resulting
from the street railroad system, are demand
ing a road, but manifest little anxiety by
whom it is built, so that the interests of tha
oity, and of the people individually, are not
bartered away for a mere pittance. -1
The original proposition to build a road was
made by Mr. Skiff, and several associates,
who proposed to lay down a track upon the
principal streets only, and, for whioh privi
lege, they proposed to pay into tha Oity Trea
sury, the sum of $10 per car used.
This was referred to a Select Committee,
who reported against it. Another propo
sition, however, waa made by A. B. Stevens,
and others, and presented to the oommittee,
without having first been before the Council,
and a majority reoommended its passage by
that body. Mr. Oambron and Allnutt, how
ever, dissented. The chief difference betweon
the two, was that the latter offered to pay
$80 per oar, for each car used, and to insert
the following condition, stipulating for further
Seotion 11. At the end of every five years
from the passage of this ordinanoe, the City
Council may increase the annual tax upon tha
car, if the grantees concur, and if they do not
aonour then the City Council may take control
of the Street-railroad, according to section
I and 7.
Aftor two nights discussion, Mr. Myora
offered a substitute, whioh. is almost a verbatim
transcript of the Cincinnati ordinance, varied
only to make it locally applicable, and per
haps in a few of the minor details. It invitee
competion, and proposes to give the franchise
to the higest bidder.
This at once obviates a host of objections,
and removes all cause of jealously. Had the
privilege bean granted to any one company,
ay an ordinanoo, its rivals would have en
deavored to create dissatisfaction and jeal
ousy, by Intimating that they wonld have con
tracted on more advantageous terms to tha
city than were obtained. . If bids are invited,
such olamer will be silenced forever. The
bast proposals will be accepted, and the work
commenced immediately. The principle will
likewise expedite the passage of the measure,
as oou'noilmen will not be voting fororagainst
the interest of any of their- friends. - Tha
members, with probably one er two exception b,
are railroad men on general priocipki, bnt it
is doubtful whether any particular oompony
can oombine a sufficient number to secure suc
cess. - ' -
As there ia bat one more meeting of the
Coanoil previous to its dissolution, we suppose)
nothing more will be done until the new one
convenes. '. The great amount, of general busi
ness consequent upon ' the close of the year
will occupy the whole of the remaining ses
sion; besides,1 as an election is pending, and.
as the question enters largely into th oan
vass, it is proper that all definite action should
be deferred until the people hare been heard.
When, however, the election Is over, we hop
the matter will be at once aoted upon, that m
sufficient number ef reads may be constructed,
without delay. , i ,, ; :v,tK,i ,
