( n liking over thc lleport ot the

been try to cast ridicule upon tho fact
that the amount of 87 was paid for a hand
sled, and other items for washing for tate
offices (misprinted " oiu rrs in thc lie
port) by thc present Uoard of State Aud
itors. We need say nothing of the pro
priety of such an expenditure: tho fact
we find thc following, items in the lleport
of the last Democratic' Koard, when our
neighbor was here to watch and guard
the State Treasury, ought to bo regarded
as conclusive on upon this point :
I). Ilobbs, reparing whcel-barrow. 81,20

These arc small and doubtless, (with
the exception of the luxury of ico for thc
officers) very proper expenditures; and wc
allude to them only as an offset to the
hand-sled and washing items in thc last
report w hich so much gas has been expen
ded." The Knquirer in its examination of the

with a J-lvat anlcry to inspect a certain
quality o'f I nJ,cr lno f which his

that this exposure of their old sins will
moisten with repentance a singlo locofoco

will exasperate them to think that the

CongroKsNcrlous A II ray In the House,
Washington, Feb. 0.
J Iov.se. The House was in session all
night, mainly engaged iu taking the yeas
and nays on motions to adjourn eating,
snloking, sleeping, &e. At about half
past 1 a s.'rious affray occured, which is
thus narrated by a member and a witness:
Mr. CJrow objected to Mr. Quitman't
many any remark.
Mr. Kcitt said If you arc going to
object, return to your own side of the
Mr. drow responded This a free hall,
ami every man has a right to bo where he
Mr. Kcitt then came up to Mr. Grow,
and said I want to know what you mean
by such an answer as that.
Mr. Grow replied I mean just what I
say. 11ns is a free hall, and a man has a
right to bo where he pleases.
Mr. Kcitt, taking Mr. Grow by thc
throat, said I will let you know that you
are a d d black republican puppy.
Mr. Grow knocked up his hand, saying
I shall occupy such place in this hall as
I please, and no nigger-driver fchall crack
his whip over me.
Mr. Kcitt then again grabbed Mr.
Grow by tho throat, and Mr. Grow knock
ed his hand off, and Mr. Kcitt coming at
him again, Mr. Grow knocked him down.
The reporter adds: Thc respective
friends of both parties rushed to thc res
cue. Various members on each side en
gaged ia the fight, which took place in
the area fronting the Clerk's desk. Mr.
Washburn, of Illinois, was conspicnon
among the republicans, dealing heavy
blows. The Speaker loudly and impera
tively demanded order, and called on the
Scrgeant-at-Arms to interfere. That
functionary, carrying his mace of office,
together with his assistants, hurried into
tho thickest of the fiht, in which at least
a dozen members were engaged. Some
minutes elapsed before, this truly fearful
contest was quieted. Farther difiieulties
ri oaf ti ir 'ti j ovmil; tnir mnu aa-
wastcd on trival motions. At that hour,
Mr. Quitman submitted a resolution that
the House adjourned till Monday next,
the subject under consideration (tho Kan
sas menage) shall be resumed, and the
. ' i. i nt.
vote on tne pending proposition snau oc
taken without any further delay being oc
casioned by debate or dilatory motion.
Unanimous consent was given for the
introduction of the resolution, which was
atrrecd to, and the speaker announced the
IIoue adjourned till Monday, when the
subject will come up as thc special order.
Washington, Feb. 8.
Mr. Kcitt rose to i;ivc a personal expia
tion, sayiugthut the House would remem
ber that its proceedings during the session
c i i i i-,.. r ....
oi rruiay, were oroh.cn iu upon m an un
pleasant manner. It was due to fair deal
ing that be should assume to himself all
the responsibility for thc violation of its
order and dignity; and he was tho ag
jrressor, and whatever of responsibility
probably attached to that act, belonged to
him alone. It was also due to justice that
he should make whatever reparation was
in his power to thc dignity and decorum
of thc House thus violated. He did this
in the expression of his profound regret at
the occurrence. I'ersonal considerations
arc always unpleasant very seldom exeu
sable, rarely justifiable never in a legis
lativc body. He felt in full force the rc
sponsibility he had assumed in saying he
was the aggressor, ami tnat tnc enure re
sponsihility belonged to mm. in this
connection he had but one other remark
to make, and that was that whether any
blow was directed at him or not, wa3 more
than ho could say ; at least, ho was un
conscious of having received it. With
this explanation he parted from the sub
ject. Mr. Grow said he had been taught in
childhood that all fights among men are
disgraceful to human nature, and to the
christian community, and this is especial
ly thc case when they occur among law
makers, in the midst of their delibera
tions. Jlipcr years and thc force of edu
cation, had satisfied him that this lesson
was good and tru?, yet the art of .self-defence
was recognized as one of the in
alienable rights of man, to be exercised
on all occasions, under all circumstances,
whenever necessary for thc protection of
life or property. At tho last sitting of
thc House, he found himself unexpected
ly engaged in thc first personal contlct of
the session. He tendered to thc House
most cheerfully whatever apology was due
for the violation of its order and decorum
and no one regretted more than himself,
the occasion for this violation of its order.
Thc Houe immediately adjourned.
