Stephens, of Ga., Geo. Trenbolm, of S, C, and,
Charles Clark, of Miss lately engaged in a rebel-

whereas, the authority of the Federal Government
is sufficiently restored iu the aforesaid States to ad
mit of the enlargement of said, prisoners from

their respective paroles to appear at sucn lime and

not depart therefrom : John A. Campbell iu

Octobv " The sweetest, saddest month In all
the year." But bow delightful its seisoa; how
comely ia iti appearance; bow modest in its mien:
bow sober ia its garment of pale yellow and russet
grey I how mild the lustre of its eyes, as seen ia the
sett.ng sua or virgin blusues : and bow sweet aad
luteuke its voice, as tbe ecboes are borne along in
tbe wind o er tbe slightly rippl.td river or tbe eradc
linr leaves of tbe woodland. It is indeed a gentle
season, and comes amongst us as the vicegerent of
peace, checking our more wayward thoughts, soft
ening down our asperities and infusing into us a
porUoa of its own quiet and subdued nature. Trno,
it does not possess the stately sternness of winter;
the animating and vivifying qualities of spring, nor
the gorgeous glare of summer, but the more genial
qualities of all three seasons combined in its soft
and chastening character. : It is, then, for being
what it is, that we so love Aetumn. It is for this,
that of the twelve sister moiths of tbe year, oar
favorite one is October. See how placid are ber
subsi bow transparent ber dews; bow mildly
beams her moon, and bow gentle the whisperings of
her wind. She brings to full fruition the labor ot
the husbandman ; ripens to maturity tbe fruits of
the earth, and oontummates the designs of a bene
ficent Providence by enabling .his dopendent
creatures to garner, up, for a wore rigid and less
genial season, the products necessary , for their
sustenance. '- , r. . . f

and that to oppose the President was treason; and
that loyalty consisted of an endorsement of the

on the great issue of negro suffrage, the Democrats
all agree with tbe President in opposing the en
franchisement of the negroes; while all the shoddy
editors, politicians and preachers r.re opposing the
reshlent s policy or white reconstruction, and
scold because he will not violate law and decency
by forcing negro citizenship upon his party and the

'Dr. Lynn, the son of an English' clergyman,
following the bent of a roving disposition, at an,
early age, left his country aad has returned after
eight years' absence, skilled in every department of

"Dr. Lynn, during a brier visit to London, with
a view to make preparations for a winter's cnmriaign '
(he is, 1 Understand, to visit Dublin before settling
down here,) gave thrco private teanta, at two of

growth, his programme is stored with eastern
novelties, and his performance is the perfection of

his astounding dexterity, and the ease aud grare
with which the most difficult feat is accomplished
are as admirable as tbe dexterity is marvelous. -
"I will mention but one of two items. A craphio.

and at the same time most wonderful, "-of all the
teats performed by the juirglers of that .country.
They were the top and butterfly tricks. A top is

on the point of a sword, where' it whirls 'Yncrrily;
then it is brought along tbe keen edge td thw
handle) then it renews its flight to be agnia caught
nd ultimately it is sent, like a niinnture, Islondm
across a silken thread which is invisible, to the au-
lence; sometimes ascends the bin, "but is always!
sure of foot, and waltzes its way over the narrow
path,' from the boxes of a theatre to the back of
the stage, as readily as across a drawing room.
The butterflies are cnt ont of many colored papery

was requested by Dr. Lynn to write the name of
any person, of any country, who has died since the
world Degan." l did so in a remote 'prtrt or the
room, before leaving which I tightly- folded the
paper on which the name was written, until it
resembled a doctor s pill, and placed it on the Uihlc,
where it remained in presence of and close to all
present except Dr. Lynn. That he did not touch;
it and that he bad'no means Of ascertaiag what the
namo was beyond the meager , hint to be derived
from areply to his questions of how many words and
letters it comprised, I can positively vouch. Within
two minutes the name Wis traced upon his arm;
and in letters eaob of which, if 1 may say so, wot
enlarged Jae timile or my own, ive . other
names were written by different persons, and one
was selected at random out Of the five, and with
prescisely a slmila result On the previous ovonliitf
thirteen ladies were present, as well as a number of
professional men lights of law, literature nnd
niedien.1 science ; a name was written by each lady,
and thirteen to the unspeakable amazement' of all
present, the writing on the arm corresponded with
the writing on the crumbled paper in the lady a

it is to the credit of Dr. Lynn that be utterly dll

RESOLUTIONS TO 00 LNTO COMMITTEE. OF TUE WHOL.
By Mr. Mullins: That the House of Representa
tives be declared in committee of tbe whole, to con
sider tbe constitutionality or legality of the seat of
Mr. Cameron, who now claims bis scat in this
House as tbe representative trora the county,' or
Shelby. He would therefore move that the rules
be suspended for the purpose of bringing up tbe
. Mr. Hood thought such a course was altogether
wrong. W by not have the eligibility of the gen
tlemao to his scat first investigated by a committee
Mr. Steele said if any member on this floor wa
inelligible to his scat, he Was decidedly iu fuvor of
having bim ousted, but why not do A by legal and
constitutional means ? Our sister city of Memnh
has seen fit to send Mr. Cameron to represent ber.
He has credentials in his pocket, and if not entitled
to his seat, why not have his ease investigated by
the proper Uommittee.
Mr. Cameron rose and said he stood here the sole
representative of the county of Shelby ; one of the
most truly magnanimous constituencies of the
State. I do not shrink from investigation. There
are no charges against me. No man can any that I
am uqi oonsiuuuoaauy vvcuxt to uia iiougo. .jjj
whole procecdiug is irregular and illegal. ( hare
had my borne in the city of Memphis for the Inst
three years, uentlemen have bold, and now bold
seats on this floor who, it is well known, are not
eligible to such. But because I am politically op
;osed to the majority, 1 am sitiglcd out and my
right to my Beat di puted.
Mr. Richards said he was in favor of Mr. Came
ron or any other member having a fair hearing.
if the susiensiiin ot the rules would deprive luiu
of a fuH hearing he would vote against it.
Pending any action being had on tho subject, the
House adjourned until 1 ocIock.
