XXXVIth CONGRESS—1st SESSION.
WASHINGTON, January 6.
Senate not In session.
HOUSE. Mr. Miles said it was not bli pur
pose yesterday to make a regular 'speech, but
to suggest how harmony might be produced
among the elements which are equally opposed
to the Republican party. The colonial de
bate which then took place was happy in its
results, He was not a party man, but an out
sider, and though he had been acting with
the Democratio party, he was an independent
States Rights' man, and, therefore, from his
position oould speak calmly andindependently.
The Republican candidate was particularly
obnoxious to those representing Southern con
stituencies, in consequence of hit connection
with Helper's book, whioh eontained the most
vile and atrocious sentiments; hence a concen
tration of Southern gentlemen against Mr.
Sherman. He argued that the responsibility
of non-orgaalssUon rested with the Anti
Lecompton Democrats. These Anti-Leeomp-ton
Democrats who voted the Republican
ticket, are, In effect, Republicans. The
responsibility of organization rests on the
shoulders of those who have voted for neither
Democrats nor Republicans, because the South
ern Opposition hare intimated they will join
tbe Demoorats proper whenever it is shown
that suoh a union will elect their ttandidate.
Mr. Haskin wished to know hether, on
the principle laid down by Mr. Miles, those
Demoorats who vOied for Mr. Maynard did
not thereby become Americans.
Mr. Miles did not think so, because Mr.
Maynard was outBide the American party.
Mr. Haskin supposed thfl National Com
mittee determined political orthodoxy.
They understood that FillmoK nd Donald
son, for who Mr. Majnard was n leetor,
was in the organization,
Mr. Miles said he had voted for tfr. May
nard, and would vote out and out Akner'0SI
with the view of defeating the Republics, DB-
Mr. Haskin said he voted for Mr. GilrnVf a
member of the American cartv. desirina? to
organize the House.
Mr. Miles did not Tote for Mr. Gilmer, and
would not under any circumstances, besides
Mr. Gilmer is not now a oandidate before the
Mr. Adrian said he yesterday spoke of the
five Anti-Leoomnton Democrats on this floor
who had cast their votes for Speaker for all of
their own members. The gentleman from
Pennsylvania (Hickman) asked what he
meant by five Anti-Leoompton Demoorats.
in this he showed extreme sensitiveness, and
seemed to think be(Adrain) intended to Insin
uate that he (Hickman) was not an Anti-Le-
compton Demoorat. He was eleoted an Anti-Le
oompton Democrat against an Administration
or Lecompton Demoorat. The Americans and
Republican chose to support him in prefer
ence to his competitor, and lie should always
fesl gratified to his political opponents for the
support they gave him in 1858. He differed
from Mr. Buchanan on Territorial policy, but
that was no evidence; he was not a Demo
crat. He conceived it was evidence that he
was a Democrat because he opposed the Ad
The editor of the Ameritan, at Trenten.said
that he and Mr. Biggi had been oonsiitent in
their votes here, and neither tbe Republicans
nor Democrats could have any fault to find.
Mr. Moore, of Kentucky, said tbat Mr.
Adrain had remarked that the Southern Oppo
sition would not vote for a Demoorat. If that
was true he had failed to have tbat acuteness
nooessary to obtain the information. He was
ready to make the ohoioe between tbe candi
dates of tbe Republican and Democratic par
ties. Jle could mane a choice between l.ae
devil and a witch. Lartghter.l If the Antl-
Lecomptonites have a ohoioe, let them come
to the scratch and vote for a Democrat in
preference to a Republican. The gentleman
from Ohio (Cox) said, the other day, if it had
not been for Brown's raid, the Southern Op
position and RepublioanB would have made an
allianoe. He protested tbat suoh a remark
was without foundation in faot.
Mr. Cox expressed the hops that the gen
tleman would not make any more arguments
on that point, as it would not be ohlvalrous to
to attack a man when he could hare no oppor
tunity to reply.
Mr. Moore There is no need of attacking
the gontleman now, I oan attaok him at any
Mr. Adrian was in favor of the elsotion of a
Speaker by a majority of votes, but would vote
for a plurality rule in the event the House
could be organized in no other way,
Mr. Clark, of N. Y., denied that the Le
compton issue is dead, as has been deolared.
The Lecompton Constitution was dead and
deserved to dio, and when it died It killed its
authors, but the Kansas controversy is by no
ended. The English bill, which passed both
Houses, and remains in full force, and tbe ap
plication for admission by Kansas, which will
be made as soon as the House organizes, will
encounter that at the threshold. Before he
could answer the interrogatory of Mr. Wins
low he desired to be informed whether the
Democratio party of the House intend to resist
the application of Kansas for admission. That
is a material point which affects the action of
Mr. Dejarnette replied tbat the purpose of
those with whom he acted would be made
known when that question comes before the
U ou8e. The people of V irginia are determined
in future to demand the observance of the
guarantees of the Constitution, and reply . by
force to any violation of them.
Mr. John Coshrane moved to adjourn.
Mr. Hiokman claimed the floor in order to
move the plurality rule.
Mr. Houston regarded the course of Mr.
Hiokman in offering to amend the motion to
proceed to an election as unprecedented and
Mr. Brlggs wished to define his position.
He came there as an American, opposed to the
Kansas policy of the Administration. In his
district he was nominated by Americans and
supported by Republicans. His party was
suffioient in number to return him here. No
one had ever approaohed him to ask him to
aban don any prinoiple he had ever maintained.
He had never said he would not vote for a
Republican, but he did say that he could
never support suoh men as Oorwin or Pen
nington men of national views, but who could
indorse the sentiments of Helper's book. He
believed that Mr. Sherman repudiated suoh
sentiments, and were it not that be were re
strained by his friends, the gentleman from
Ohio would emphatically so declare. In reply
to Mr. John Cochrane's remarks made the
other day, he defended Amerioans from the
oharges of proscription, and in support of his
position pointed to the fact that the Ameri
cans last autumn were the cause of electing
one-half of the Democratio State tioket. He
was the only representative here from, the
North as the embodiment of American senti
ments. Mr. John Cochrane, in reply, said that there
was at the last fall election a body of patriotic
men who approached half-way to' the Demo
cratic party, and elected half the State tioket.
He congratulated his colleague that this much
was accomplished. He asked them to be not
merely half-way Democrats, but altogether,
such as he was.
Mr. MoKean asked Mr. Cochrane whether
he aooepted the Buffalo platform. Laughter.
Mr. Cochrane responded that the purity of
the Democratic party could bear even that,
but let me advise the gentleman to forsake
the miseries and tempests of the past and ad
vance to where calm and better breezes blow.
Laughter. It h id been announced what
mountains bad to be scaled, rivers passed and
mid-night darkneet penetrated by those who
were In search of the truth.

Governor Banks's Message.
BoBioir, January 6. The message of Gov.
Banks, delivered to tbe Legislature to-dav.
mainly relates to the affairs of tbe Common
wealth, which are .represented to be in a pros
perous condition. She Governor devotes some
space to tne present existing national question,
in whioh he says the repeal of the Missouri
Compromise was the most stupendous publio
wrong ever committee1, in this country, to tbe
interests of labor, ta e rights of States, the
equality of the people , the observance of the
Constitutional limitations, or the perpetuation
of free institutions.
A violent policy mut't be sustained by vio
lent measures. The people of Massachusetts,
under all eiroumatancits, are inflexibly op
posed to, and will resist by every constitutional
right, the extension of sU very, the re-opening
of the slave-trade, the consolidation of des
potic power in the Feneral Government, or
restrlotions upon the freedom of speech or
the press, or of op Inion. Sht will support the
Constitution and the Union, not because they
are respected elsewhere, but because she knows
their cost and appreciates their value.
The Oovernor further says: "Nor do I ap
prehend that the restoration of the Govern
ment to its antiient policy will weaken its

A correspondent of the New York IWiune

On last Monday the body was disinterred

liauds of effioient persons to prepare for the
solemn rites that were to take place the Friday

taken to the Town Hall, where it was exposed

modates six hundred. Those who came first
were seated, and then for four hours oae contin

women, with a sprinkling thank Heaven only

at one door and out at the other; thus it is
thought at least four thousand persons passed
through tbe room, whilo the most perfect and
solemn order was observed throughout. Some
women, in pausing to look on the fine manly
form and blackened face, would burst into
to.irs, while men would clench their hands and
compress their lips, as if making some new

There is much activity in the payment of oonpena

but rutea are not materially changed. As soon an

greater earn will naturally be shown.
Money hat commenced to find its way to the streets

not to an .exten t to reduce r.itm at all. Them ha
bi'en some calling iu of Miurt loans by the Hanks to

how short the time, 7 percent, has been the rate.

There waa a sharp activity In the Mono; market to
