quietly spend their days. By a disastrous lire
tome months ago, however, they lost their all,
and now, In their old age, and without rela

sion. The husband Is eighty-one and the wife
but little younger, but both are bright and
well-preserved. Their concern aro said to bo
worthy of cultivated audiences.

In their opinion, that the vast domain west of

have peculiar Interests and a commerce on the
racllle distinct from the Atlantic coast, should
have a volco In the National Council,
It may be said In their favor that they are an
energetic people, who have proved loyal to
the country, and who havo been of valuable
assistance to the ltepubllcan party In the last
campaign. Governor McCorcuicx, of Arizona,
lias a host of friends In that section,
who aro strongly recommending his selec

this clslm of the Pacific Coaat, and select Gov

THE VOl IB OF THE ITOl'LE.
Tha last rote of any Importance; to bo
taken by the Electoral Commission Has
been cut, and the result has gone to tho
country. There Ii no longer any doubt at
to the Presidency, and' the question ot the
character of the -next Administration de
pends upon nothing but ill own policy and
conduct Tho great body of the pcoplo
will be gratified that the party whole loy
alty and devotion maintained the authority
of the Government when assailed by vio
lence, has been further Invested with the
executive, trust, and that front among Its
most distinguished leaders one of the ablest
and purest has been chosen to direct the
affairs of tho nation. They know from the
convulsions which have shaken the publics
confidence In the stability of our Institu
tions tlnce the diy of the election, that a
great duty ti Imposed upon tho Incoming
l'resulent, almost. If not quite equal to the
talk of reconstruction after tho armed con
flict between the two sections. In fact, they
fed that the real work of restoring the
Union remains to bo done. After years of
vain effort, because erroneously directed,
tho two divisions 0! tho people which mot on
the field ot battle to contest tho question of
Us further continuance, now confront each
other In tho arena of politics In open and un
concealed hostility, upon tho subject of Its
proper government. Borne of the Southern
States, after a lapse of more than the tenth
of a century of questionable peace, find
themselves as completely and effectually
under Northern domination, by civil
means, as they were during tho war by
military power; and they complain with
reason, that while they are chiefly inhabi
ted by native-born citizens, and geograph
ically and nominally Southern States, they
aro controlled by strangers and rendered
in character, Northern States, by reason of
the sentiments and opinions of their rulers.
And while they could not legitimately
complain of this fact, if the change had
been brought about by the ordinary course
of immigration, there is sufficient Justifi
cation for remonstrance against govern
ments originally established by military
power, and slnco kept in being by a
union of objectionable elements unknown
In former days, and representing no sub
stantial Interests, or but In small pro
portion to the whole party of tho States
concerned.
The people of the North havo long felt
the injustice of these governments, and
now that tho clsss whose privileges and
Immunities were believed to bo especially
committed to their charge and safe keep
Ing, has, In a largo degree, again cast its
lot with its ancient head, and asks no fur
ther protection In its rights, the occision
for their encouragement has disappeared,
and a new and moro efficient and popular
means for the preservation of tho tfnfui
of the colored race Is demanded by the
chsnged situation.
There Is some sympathy felt personilly
for the better class of men who have settled
In the South and become identified with
theso governments In a prominent way,
but it cannot avail against the positive con
viction in the public mind of the impolicy
of upholding unnatural power In the face
of the protest of those who In reality con
stitute the Slate. However patriotic the

OITOKTL'MTV
bOUTII.
Tor filly years, there has not existed the
opportunity for tho Southern people to
benefit and develop that section of the
country, that is about being offered them.
We mean this, in exity sense, political,
material, financial, tic. A President is
about being Inaugurated who sends to the
people of the South these most important
and assuring words. "Assure any ofour
Southern friends, that I am impressed with
the necessity of a complete change of men
and policy. I shall stand by tho Ideas
outlined in my letter of last summer."
This, more fully interpreted means, not
only the cntiro right ol self-government,
but also a large and liberal policy In re
spect to matters ot internal Improvement,
of which the South stands In most press
ing need. Except at Intervals, amost per
nicious policy on this latter question has
held sway in our national councils, for
long years, to the utter ruin of our foreign
commerce and internal development. Wo
trust this disastrous policy will be speedily
changed. It Is indeed little less than na
tional suicide.
There are hundreds of leading, patriotic
men at the South, capablo or rising far
above the miserable party politics of the
hour; let all such, then, hasten to strike
hinds with the conservative men of the
North, on the one question of building up,
and the work is fully half done. Be assured,
the backbone of the entire country Is with
you. l'ay no heed to the Ignorant gabble
of ten cent politicians, or the ranting! of
some local Journal, with Its three hundred
circulation. Clo In, statesmen, both North
and South, enact the laws needful to make
your country what the Almighty Intended
her to be, and, our word lor It, the now
desolate regions of the South will soon
blossom like an Eden, the waste empire of
the Southwest yield up her fabulous wealth,
whllo tho uJtoU country will bo repaid a
thousand times over any possible expendi
ture or liability it might be necessary to
Incur.
DUTY OE Tnn IlErtinUOAN aitXATK.
As then is Justice on earth and manhood
In tho ltepubllcan party, there wilt be no
further compromise. Tho Democratlo
party may at well know this now as to
know it Saturday the day for compromise
has patscd. The day for inaugurating the
President-elect Is near at hand. The De
mocracy opposo the decisions of the Tri
bunal, and are delaying the count. Delay
is dangerous at this luncture, but tho Re
publican Senate can defeat this Democratic
scheme. Its duty Is as clear at the open
face of a cloudless day. It the Democracy
attempt any further delay of tho count
to day, then the Senate holdt the destiny
of the nation. The Prettdent or tho Sen
ate, under the Constitution, has the right
to count U10 role. It will bo tho duty,
therefore, ot tho Senate, thould this emer
gency arise, to elect a man of will, nervo
and courage as its presiding officer, who
shall. In the Senate Chamber, on Saturday
next, count the remainder of tho votes, ac
cording to the Constitution and established
precedents, and declare the malt In the
presence of tho Bonato and as many mem
bers of the Houso of Representative! as
may choose to attend. This will thwart
the conspiracy of the filibusters aid work
out a result which will be sustained by the
people, the law, Justice and the military
forces of tho Republic.

Mr. SHERMAN called Tor tho reading or tbe
law, which was read.
Xtlr.MLItlUMUN inMltwas reryplaln that
although tbe Commission would not recetro tes
timony. It was competent ror the Senate to
receive It.
Mr. EDMUNDS read the law saying tbat this
decision or the Commission shall stand unless the
two Houses aro or the opinion that It ought not
to stand, and tbe only action now was for tho
Senate to adopt or reject the decision or tbe Com
mission. Mr.MERIUMON held that the matter could
be recommitted to tho Electoral Commission ana
hare further action on tbe question. How. he
asked. It the Senate to know what the facts are?
Ho wanted tbe facte and tbo testimony laid
before the Senate to see if tbe evidence bean out
the objection.
Mr. iJAYAKD laid that the twoHonsas must
concur or non-concur In the decision of the Com
mit! ion. He had urged tbat all the facta should
bs open to every Senator tnd Member to etch
House, but tha Commission bad decided other
wise, and he could not now sustain the resolution

evidence they hava U now before the Senate, and
was before the Commission. Ho did not belleva
any such orter as contemplated by tbe re sol at Ion
was necessary. The evidence Is now. and hat
been bcloro tbe Senate, and each Senator Has all
the Information regarding Mouth Carolina, and
the resolution of the Mens for is not In order. All
there is to do It to concur or non concur.
Mr. MKItKlMUN said he dlfiered with the Sen
ator from Delaware. Ha said tho Senator had
argued on tha assumption tbat tbo Senate was in
legislative session, and, therefore, the evidenoe
came before them under tbe rules, but he did not
consider the Senate as now In lenlslatlve session,
and It was competentto havo this evidence before

Mr.McCJtEMtY laid the average Amerloan
politician could hardly resist tho temptation to

harder to resist even though tha speech which he
makes cannot In the least a floe t the result, and
now, under the law, In the brier time of ten min

of this Electoral Commission. Vituperation and

Speculate as we may, and talk as wa please, the
question was settled, and tho arguments aro
closed, swd ha did not know but that It was set

faith in tho Electoral Commission.

Mr. McDONALD deprecated the decision of
tbe Commission In not aolng behind the returns
and Investigating tbe elections. He claimed tbat
the elections In South Carolina, as wall as Flori
da and Louisiana, were:arrled by fraud, and tblt
decision gavo Mr, Harts the Presidency through
fraud.
Mr. MORTON repelled the talk about fraud,
and said that If there bad been a fair election
Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas, and Uaorg-ia, as
well at Loulalana, Florida, and South Carolina,
would have given large ltepubllcan majorities.
He reiterated with boldness and vehemenoy his
former assertions of fraud, murder, and intimida
tion In the South.
Mr. SAUE3HUIIY said wo wero approachina
the end of theconsumalion or a great outrage
and a great fraud, but that thould not deter hfiu
rrom denouncintt; It. The frauds in the South
were Instigated he satd. by high powers, and tbe
expessewas borne by the United States Treas
ury. Mr. Haves will be Inaugurated, but he will
go Into the white House without any title, and
will enjoy a position to which he has no right.
while Mr. Tildcn would feel a pride that the
people had elected him President, although bo

Mr. LOOAN said that it was not often that a
parent would strike hit own child, but we hear
saw the Democrats denouncing their pet, tbe
cjicciuiri tvwuiuAiMtwu. cTv.jtJU iT ineir votes.
He raid there was considerable talk about fraud
and ha believed there had bean fraud. Yes, he
asked, where can you find a greater fraud than
tbat attempted In Oregon, where tbe name of a
United States senator was attached to It as af
firming It. Sueba fraud was attempted In that
State at would make an escaped convict blush
for shame, and then Democratlo Senators
come here and talk about fraud. He alluded
In severe terms to tbe part played by Senator
Kkllv, and tald Republican Senators had
been censored for a less ollenee than Democrats
had been excused for. He claimed that the per.
tont who were opposing tbe decision or the 00m
mission, and who talked about resisting it, wire
persons who did not love tbelr country, and bad
no patriotism, who would rather see the country
go down In gloom than to tee their hones and
wishes for office thwarted.
Mr. EATON denounced the decision, and tald
he bad adlspatthfrom twenty-one of his con.
ttltuents calling upon the delegation tn Congress
to resist by all the meant In their power the con
tumatlon ol fraud.
Mr. EATON tald they would resist by all Con
stitutional meant, and he did not Intend to aid la
ina conaontuientgi inii great iriuu.
Mr. SHLKMAN farored the decision, and
thought It was dishonorable for those who favored
tbt Commission to talk about Ignoring Its decision,
and said If tbo decision had bten In favor of Mr.
Tllden, be would have resisted, with all hit
power, any effort to prtrtnt Mr. Tildcn from btlng
inaugurated,
Mr. PATTERSON tald the Republicans of
Beuth Carolina did not atk any favors. They were
willing that the Commission should go behind
the returns, and If there had been tlmoto inves
tigate the matter be would hare voted for the
resolution offered br tbe Senator from North
Carolina. Ha tald the Republicans courted In
vest! gat ion, and wanted all the acts or the Demo,
crattjlnvestigtteddownln South Carolina. He
read from statistics to show that the Democrat!
cast more votetln tome cases than tbt census
Showed Inhabitanti.
Mr. WADLEIG.U laid he was on one or the In
restlgatlon Commltteos. and ho was willing to
assert tbat great fraud and Intimidation was
practiced In the South.
Mr. MERRIMON claimed that tbe army was
a source oflntimldatloD, and If the toldlert had
rot been there tha Democrats would bare polled
more rotes. He tald tbat the negroes wanted to
rote tbe Democratlo ticket, and the toldlert be
ing there prerented ft.
Mr. DLAINE said that he wanted It to aro on
record that tho negroes were 10 eager in South
Carolina to rote the Democratlo ticket that It
took the whole army of the United States to re
strain them,
Mr. CAMERON, (Wli.) said he was on the
committee that went to south Carolina, and be
denied tnat the toldlert prevented a fair election.
Mr. CHRISTIANUYTalso or tha committee,
tatdtf the army had not been there the election
would have bten a faroet there would bave been
no election at all. He tald tbat no Senator or
Member could have thought that tbe Commit

ft was talked about and wat well known tbat
thoraeauld not possibly have been time to do 19
before the 4th of March - j

tald that only one set or returns had been re
ceived, and the question whether there wat any
manner in which the two Houses or Congress
could come Into possession ot tbat other return.
Mr. COCKREJUL thought that a little at ten,
tlon to tha Constitution ol tbe United States
would have made the case perfectly plain. He
reedthetlauaoofthe Constitution and the law,
and tald tbe count to be pursued was perfectly
plain, and If Vermont did not know by this time
how to comply with tbe law.
Mr. EDMUNDS tald he would use up hit ten

After a great deal of dlscusslonand futile of.

tbe House, when he announced the presence of
110 members.
Mr.WAu.no, Mr. Fjukkus and others, da
mended a division on the question shall there be

The yeas and naya were demanded, and the

Mr. TAYLOR mored that the Senate ba noti

Mr.O'DRIEN thought It was very Indelicate
and improper for Mr. liaowv to object when the

Mr. bl'RINQER insisted upon belngbcard and
was called to order In all parts of the liall, whoa
the Speaker said the gentleman was violating

Tbe ouestlon was then taken br reat and niri

The SPEAKER. And the gentleman from II

what the motive wat in making these motions,
but he knew the effect wat dtlay.
Mr. O'DHIEN tald no one on his tide wanted

Mr. SPRINOER Insisted that It wat the duty

Objection wat made to the quettlon whether

Mi. Hl'HINOER tatd that tha lfottia had aald
It would not read It all, but tbat waino reason
why a portion of the paper offered should not bo
read.
Tbe SPEAKER tald that the gentltman would
certainly not hold seriously that a part of a paper
could be read, when the Houso had rejeottd the
whole. The trouble wai as to the reading tbat
tbe law prohibited It. The SPEAKbU bad
nothing to do with tbe (Taming or that law, but
tbe gentleman from Illinois had.
Tbe regular order was then demanded, and Mr.
COCHRANi; (Pa.) offered a resolution ibat the
objection to tbo decision ot tho Trlbuaal be sus
tained, and that the rotes be not counted. , ,
Mr.O'DRIEN, then tried to get another Tflte
and motion for arecctt, but the SriAiun re
(used to entertain the motion
The debate on the case waa then opened at tt 10.
Mr. HOOKER, (aMIss.) argued that tha Elec
toral Tribunal had violated the law, and had da-i
Seated the expectations or those w bo clothed
them with iKiwer and authority, and ba argued
with a remark made the other day, tbat those
who created the Tribunal were not bound Inlaw
or morals to abide by the finding of the Commit,
lion, became It had not exercised tha Jnrlsdiotlon
It wat clothed with, and had not onqulrod into
tha evidence. Having rerutod to take jurisdic
tion, It had not performed tbe functions of us crea
tion, aad its decisions wtre therefore not binding.'
Mr. L API! AM (N. Y.liold ha had opposed the
Mil on constitutional and parliamentary grounds,
but he felt bound to defend tbe aotlou of the
Commission. Referring to this particular case ot
South Carolina, he tald that he wat one orthe
members who formed one or tha special commit
tee appointed to Investigate a if airs In South Car
olina, and he wanted to call attention to the fact
tbat la tbe report or that Committon they unani
mously declared that Hayes and Whaeler had
carried the State by over SOO majority. One of
tbe members of the Tribunal (Mr. Abbott) was
a member nlso of tho South Carolina Committee.
He signed the report that Hayes bad carried the
Slate, and yet tn tbe Commission he roted not to
count tbe roto for Hayes. And yet the gentle
men on the other side talk of fraud. The only
frauds he had heard of wat the attempt to pur
eriMo electors In Florida and Louisiana, and the
attempt to create one by money In Oregon. The
ctrher dispatches had been deciphered, and they
all point unerringly to Oramerey Park, and yet
Tiloen and Senator Killet say they know noth.
Ing about them.
Mr. OOODE, (Va.), laid the question that now
f resented Itself, waa what thould be done under
hectrcuinatanoes. He believed the Democrats
should do at they would be dona br. They must
accord to tbe Republicans what tha Democrats
would hare demanded unanimously If tbe de
sMilAn ISesi tveaetn In Ifcftlp famr t.at him who htt
been declared the victor have the office, ftr It Is1
lonominateuintne Dona, it wouia do unwise
and unmaaly to violate tno law or to attempt to
reverse tha verdict of the Tribunal by any in
direct meant. Mr. Ooona eontrasted the tit
nation of South Carolina now with what the
wai yean ago.
Mr. LAURENCE. (Ohio,, la alludlor to tho
charge made before the Cora miss loo yes
terday, that fraud was practiced tn South
Carolina on acoount of the presence, or
troops, showed that aut of tha whole number of
tooopt there, there wai about one loldlor to every
700 of tbo white inhabitant! or the State.
Mr. HANKS (Mass.) argued that there was a
necessity for the presence of troops tn South Car
olina, for the committee who went there bad found
tbat what wera called tbo citlien military were
bandt of armed white men, who were hostile to
the State government at well at to the United
States Oorernment as It existed,
Mr. PHILLIPS (Mo.) tald tbat the tight who
formed tho majority or the Tribunal
had achieved an Immortality ol Infamy.
Ha charged that Mr. Hoau had de.
calved tbe House by hit speeches before the bill
wat passed, and asserted that It could not bavo
been passed If It had been understood tbat no
proof would ba admitted.
Mr. WALLACE fS. O.) denied the charges of
fraud made against the Republican! of South
Carolina. Alluding to tho remarks of Mr. Oooni,
be told there were grave doubtt on his side of the
House, and among tome Democrats, whether he
(Uoodx) was properly elected, and he bad better
look to his own conscience. All that the Hepub
llctni or South Carolina wanted Is a fair cbance.
Mr. RAINEY tald that It wit true that South
Carolina had not now on the floor inch opposert
as tbe old Hare drlTcrt, but the people of the
btate wera well represented. He would not
countenance fraud tn any particular, and ho de
nied that the Republican party of South Caro
lina waa governed by fraud. The colored people
of South Carolina old not hate the Democrat!,
but tbelr oppressors were among them, and they
were glad when a Republican was elected to
office.
Alter further speeches tha SPEAKER stated
the question was now on tho resolution or Mr.
CociittAnx, tbat the objections of tho House to
the dccliton of t he Tribunal bo sustained,
Mr. WALLINO, (Ohio), mored to amend by
adding tbo words, "in conformity with tho act
creating the Tribunal."
Mr, JONES, (Ky.), offered ai a substitute that
the decision of the Commission bo not concurred
In by the House.
The question baring been raited whether theso
motion! were In ordor tbo SraAxm ruled that
they were.
Tho main question lathe resolution and amend
ment wat then ordered and the yeas and nayi
demanded.
Dy making theso amendments and moving to
reconsider tha fill I buttering of the House, had
laid a train for at least half a doxen yeas and
cava.
Alter the roll had been called once, Mr. WOOD,
(N. Y) tald It waa manliest tbat there were mo
tions pending which would keep tho House hero
all night, lie would therefore make a proposi
tion, which wat that all the motions thould be
withdrawn! that the vote should be taken on the
main resolution that tbe Senate thould bo In
vited to attend, and that tha oountabjuld go on
until Vermont was reached, when tha two Houiet
would again teparate, and a recess would then be
taken until to-morrow at 10 o'clock.
After some discussion the argument wai en
tered Into, Mr, OocBBAKB'a resolution was
adopted, and tbe Senate was notlned accordingly.
The Sinate shortly after entered tbe hall, and
both Houses proceeded with the connttug of the
presidential rote at reported on the first page.
After the Senate retired from the hall
Mr. SPRINOER rose excitedly, and laid: X
raise tbe point of order that thlt is a question to
bo considered by the Commission and not by the
two Houses. (Loud shouts of derisive laughter
and jeering, during which Mr. SraivaaRcontln.
ued to speak for some time, but what he ia!4
could not bo heard, In tho confusion, but a few
feet from him.
When the Speaker succeeded In restoring par
tial order, several gentlemen sought to obtain
the floor, notably Mr. WOOD, (N.Y..) who moved
a recess until lo a.m.
The SPEAKER refused to recognise anyone,
and said tbat In accordance with the previous
unanimous agreement tho House would now (at
7 Is p.m.) tako a recess until 10 o'clock to-morrow,
which wat accordingly taken.
