AVest oll'orred n resolution to pay iLiy and

expired, lorm, ending March, 187.'!. Re
ferred. Tho icnato by a vote of 20 to 31 decided
not to rocoivo polltions, us tho present ses
sion was for,oiecutivo purposes.
Tlieiioniilu resumed consideration of tho
Senator Alcorn, member of tho commit
teu on privilogos nnd olection, oll'crod a
resolution that Alexander Culdwoll bo ox
polled from his seat in tho senate. Ho
said ho introduced this resolution with a
view to saving timo, as tho ruloe rcquiro 1)
to bo laid over ono day, but in introducing
it ho did not abandon tho report of tho
committco on tho resolution now pending,
which declared that Culdwoll wa-not
duly and legally oloctcd to tho loat ho now
Senator Logan said thoro was a deslro
on tho part of somo sonalors to inlllct a
vital blow on tho senator beforo a$umont
U concludod. Had tbo sonato risen to so
high a degroo of purity that ft was nccos
sary to brand Caldwell a scoundrel und
villain V No ono would deny that his
conduct hero bad boon as propor as that
of any other senator. In rosponso to
Stowart Logan said thoro was no testimo
ny that Caldwell ovor oll'orod a dollur to
any man to voto for him, except hearssy
stntomentB, which wero shown to bo tin
worthy of bollef. Tho obargo of bribery
was a mero inference
Alcorn asserted that tbo tostl-nony
against Caldwell was Incontrovertible,
and that tho scnato was insulted by hav
ing hero n senator choon under such in
fluences. Ho offered a resolution to tho
cllect thnl tho sonata has power under tho
constitution to reject any. senator clett,
providn.l it b shown to its satltfactlont
that tin) election is tainted with fruud,and
atkod that It lie over.
Senator Ilucklnglmm contended tho
tneauircf used by Caldwell .wero corrupt
nnd against public policy, and hoi.ld
miiko his nlecllon void. Tho Jiaymcnt of
monoy to Camoy, which Is admitted by
Caldwell, was ns much n wrong a if It
bad been ucd directly to brlbn n voter.
Ho (Buckingham) would voto for tho res
olution becnutn of ft senio of publio duty.
If tbo so Date should not condemn Ibis ar
rangement then wiritv and honesty would
bo stamped on every election, no matter
how fraudulent tho means to procuro it,
nnd this would bo a blow at tho honor nnd
dignity of tb American senate, which
would bo robbed of the respect and confi
dence of tho pooplo.
Tho senate, without further action on
tho subject, wont Into executive session
and soon adjnurncd.

Thu recent dimensions ending in tho
reporlod separation of tho Murquis of
Lurno and his wife, Princess Louise, and
tho troublos wall understood to havo oc
curred between tho Prlnco Royal of Prus
sia und Quoon Victoria's oldest daughter,
show tbat matrimonial roses do not neces
sarily itrow tho path of royalty, and that
such oxulted persons havo their troubles as
well hs those In private" stations. Queen
Victoria ha a happy domestic experience;
but sho is ahnon thu only ono ot her fum
of whom it can bo said. Uoorgo tho First
kept his wifa a close prisonor in
Hanover, and novcr brought her to Eng.
lond Gcorgo tho Second nnd his wilo
had bitter qunrrols, and the latter, upon
her death-bod, Informed tbo royal bruto
that in tbo futuro ha had better con 11 no
himself to his mittrcsses. Doth husband
and wifo had a torrlblo quarrel with their
son Frodorick, Princo of Wales, whom
they treated in tbo most scandalous man
ner, nnd he, to tho best of his ability, ro
turned tbo contempt. Ooorgo tho Fourth
was drunk on tho night of bis marriago,
and fell by tho firo-grato on
tho hearth, whero he remained
until morning. Ho lived with his
wifo but a short lime, and then separated.
When ho becamo king ho excluded her
from tho coronntlon ceremonies, and after
ward attempted to obtain a divorco boforo
tho houso of lords. That lionorablo body,
scolng that his caso was mado up on per
jured testimony, refused tho request, or
rather tho king's counsel, seeing tho bad
Impression produced, asked and ob
tained leave to withdraw thoir
suit. Tbo Duko of York, Georgo
IV'f brother. was entirolv eov-
orned by bis artful mlsstreis, Mrs. Claikc,
who almost had thu contrrVonii5war
department, over which tbo duko presides,
in the way of favors and contracts. Tho
present orinco of Wales, as is well known
treated his beautiful princess. Alexandra
in so shabby a manner that it needed tho
warning vobo of public opinion to check
mm. neither tho daughter of Victoria,
the Princess Helena, married Prince
Christian, n pretty Uorman princo, who
camo to England almost a beggor. Ho
there captivated Qucon Victoria, and sho
gavo him in marriago tho hand of ber
prettiest daughter, with a larco endow
ment. Ho was about twice her age, and
had a wifo nnd six children by a loft'
handed mnrriaco in Germany. Tbo in
compatibility of tbo parties wns so groat
mat it has never coen believed tnoru could
bo any marital felicity.
THE GOOD TIME COMING.
From tho New York Herald.
We congratulate tho world on the offi
cial announcement by President Grant, in
his second inaugural uddrcss, of tho up-
proucn oi mat millennium lorctoid in tho
Apoculypio and vainly predicted and
waitod lur by tho hopeful Dr. John Cum
mlng, of London. To bo suro, tho duto is
not llxed by Prcsidont Gjant with that
precision which distinguishes tbo prog
nostications of tho evangelical bishop of
crown court, Covont Garden. Indcod, tho
period is loft In perxloxing
uncertainly by our chief magis
trate, who only unnounces tbnt
tho Groat Maker is proparing tho world,
"In His own good time," for the consolida
tion of ull tho governments und languages
of tho earth and tho abolition of armies
and navie; but as tho good timo is cer
tain to arrlvo ut last, wo may uwalt tho
hour with what palionco wo can com
mand. The prcsidont nt loast has tho ad
vantage of tbo Prosbytorian, in tho fact
that Ills predictiot cannot ho falsified by
tho rising nnd sotting of a day's sun. Tho
presidential niilleniuui may commence
whilo Gen. Grant still holds tho chief
magistracy of thoUnitod States, or it may
be postponed for years alter ho shall havo
boon gathered to the tomb of his fathers,
and until Credit Mobil lor shall havo been
forgotten. On tbo principle which forbids
us to look n gift bursa in tho mouth, wo
must take tbo prophesy as wo get it, with
out grumbling, and content ourselves with
tho rccolloctlon that it procoeds from one
who has boon honored with tho degree of
LL. P., and henco is clearly onitlcd to
"It umtit bo now dat do kingdom urn :i
And do yoar ohjubllo !"
AN ANCIENT RELIC.
Tho 'Iiacholor', publisbod ut Salisbury,
Wicomo county, Md, states that, on Sat
urday last, Mr A' E. Acktvorth loft ut
that cfllco, u curiosity of unusual interest
to the untiquary, and especially thoso who
boliovo tbat thero lived In this country
a ruio of pooplo prior to tho Indians and
possessing a civilization of which the chil
dren of tho forost know nothing. It was
digged from a Hold ou tho Dennis farm
three tulles below Qtiarillco, by a negro
tome months sluco whilo spading in tho
earth, and thrown aside as a thing of no
valuo and little intorest further than tho
gratification of idlo curiosity in gazing
at the Strang and uncouth figures on
gravon upon its sides. It Is a stone, pyra
midal In form, and rosotnblos an Egyp
tian Obelisk, both inshapoand tho hiero
glyphics It contains.
it was two inchos iquaro at tho baso
and was probably a foot in length, but
throo or four Inchos, measuring from tbo
a per, wero brokeu off after it was excava
ted and the fragment has boon mislaid
but Mr. Ackworth ontortalns hones of
recovering It. Each of the four sidos is
