he proceedingy of th6 ast hours of
he Iate Session of Corgress, without a lo
>lush. Both Houses presented scenes fr
>f violence, coifusion, haste and vul. ti
;arity, of a truly disgraceful character.
3il paragraphs as these - occur very tb
requently in the report: th
"Great confusion prevailed all ov- or
-r the Iall, and the galleries and lob- ei
Acs were crowded with spectators." r
Again, says the reporter: P
"Sundry violent struggles were oc- C
asionally made to obtain the floor, a
aundred or iore gentlemen rising at ti
mnee, and shouting out 'Mr. Speaker,' or
ieverally holding up the bills they b:
vere so anxious to have consideret1 se
l'he scenes occasioned much laughter." i.
Once more he pauses ini his labors, to in
iend this over the wires: te
"It was eight o'clock. The galler- ti
es were densely crowded, and lobby ti
nembers present increased in num- al
>ers. So much noise and confusion ar
)revailcd, that it was next to impossi- tL
ile to comprehend the legislative pro- di
,cdings. Memberswere continually fr,
roing to and returning from the outer til
-ooim, in which were liquid and solid ly
'efrwshments. Amendments to Navy hI
>ill still discussed and voted on. Some e3
nenbers, weary of the dry proceed- vi
ngs, retired to chat with lobby friends pi
md smoke segars. The falling of a n
ady's fan from the gallery, hitting an it!
ionorable below upon the head, but d<
iot seriously wounding him, excited sa
;ome little merriment. Just about p(
:his moment a burly old member came bi
nto the Iiall with a hunk of bread and tli
iam in his hands eating thereof pi
iiost heartily." tlI
Two hours later, he records: 1
"It was now half-past ten o'clock, tL
he number of spectators seening to
nerease rather than diminish, tihe ex- st
:itement all over the Hall continuing w
vithout abatenient." ri
Towards midnight, or later, says ti
he telegraph, it!
"Mr. Houston, the Chairman of ft

marched to the Presbyvterian Churi eb.
wvhaere an Address was dlelivered by
thme llev. William Lewis, of Sumter.
The Orator laid do~wn, aus the founda
tion of his renmrks, the two priopo(si
tions, that intemiperancee is a v'ery bad
and a ver'y dangerous th inig; and that
temnperanice is aL ver'y good~ thing;r that
the former, "wvork's bad all arounid,"
and the latter "works good all arounid,"
all of which he succeeded in prov'ing
conclusively, we suppose, to thle mtind~s
of all present. In truth, they are bothI
very generally admiitted lhets, for' the
most aban :!oned inebrniate will acknmowl

are pleasaed to announce to our readers
that the Council this day subscribed
$500,000 to the Blue Ridge Railroad
Company, thereby securing the Charter
granted by the State for this great and
important enterprise. Their work is,
however only half accomplished, and
it ought not to be permitted to rest.
Mr. Gourdii's letter published yester
day, shows that a subscription of a like
sum to the road through Georgia is
absolutely necessary. Ilis views on
