The case ot Mr. Brooks, the
report says, stands in a differ
ent light than any of the other
members, from the way that he
arranged to take the stock, arter
he had been appointed a Gov
ernment Director of the Union
The committee are satisfied
that the stock originally stood
on the books in the name ot
Brooks, but that his name
was subsequently erased, and
that of Brooks' son-in taw, Neil
son, inserted. There is no
doubt, but what Brooks is the
real owner ot the stock, and
not Neilson. The Committee
are unanimous of the opinion
that the llouse has jurisdiction
over the cases of Brooks and
Ames, notwithstanding the of
fenses were committed prior to
the present Congress.
The committee in conclusion
say they believe that Ames sold
stock to members with the pur
pose and intent lo influeuco
their voles in the House, and
they therefore recommend the
expulsion ot Brooks and Ames
from the House, and ressolu
tions to this effect are submit
ted with the report

The astonishing reforms ot the
Mikado have so stirred up the

can be but temporary, howev

Tub people of Georgia, Ala

A correspondent - writing
from Elba, says that a young
man named Henry Spencer,
committed suicide in Salem
township, this county, on the
6lh inst., hy placing a revolver,
which he had borrowed the day
previous, to his breast and fir
ing it. The ball entered his
heart and must have caused in
stant death. It appeared from
letters left by the deceased,
that disappointment In love
caused him to commit the ter
rible act of self-destruction.
Spencer was a highly respected
young man, and his parents
who reside in Noble county,
about a mile and a half from
where the deed was committed,
have the sympathy of the en
tire community. Ills remains
were buried on Sunday week;
the funeral being onejof the

speeches were made in favor
of a Democratic Republic,
which were wildly cheered.
