The prayer In the House of ltepresentatlves

some ungodly miscreant auggestedthat the

however, to publish a good newspsper, and

HOW AliVANCE CEUTAIU ritOOREU.
Aa a principle or morals It U gross error
to obstruct well doing; and bonce when we
would encourage progress la & good cause
we have at heart, to aid la the advance
ment of which we observe a disposition on
the rtart of others, wo cannot be too care
ful bow we undertake to expedite, the
movement least our over zeal thill provj
and Impediment la the way of ila accom
plishment. And particularly Is this the
case where the desire U to promote a
elietlshcd otject which has previously
been regarded by many with doubt and
distrust. In such cases prectpltatloa Is
dangerous, and often disastrous. Com
munlllea and peoples proceed elowly In
the solution of moral and political
problems; and la all Instances
of attempted reform thero Is great best
tency In the Initiatory stages. Men are
not Instantaneously traisformed la scatl
menl, and the early Inculcations frequent
ly fail ofpermanent effect, and leave the
work lo be recommenced by succeeding
philanthropists anil patriots. Bo In respect
of political creeds; where all the circum
stances have tended to create a certain
principle of action, which Is mide tho
criterion of all Judgment, It It found ex
ceedingly difficult to turn the mtndi of the
mines away Irom the contral conviction
which animates a party, and more them in
a new and apparently opposite direction.
The higher and more Intelligent classes
may Inaugurate a movement that prom
ises good results, but ther ctnnot hurry
tbclr followers In the novel way. To In
duce a change of feeling and general cm
currence, commonly requires much time.
And this Is the invariable experlenco in
cases where extreme situations have
engendered ultra views and
tbe obduracy of preludlce; for any change
suggested imbues the mind with suspicion,
lest the Btep shall bo construed Into an im
peachment of the former principle and
practice, an apprehension which It too
often controlling and fatal to the cause.
From this It may be readily seen how Im
probable the prospect of committing a large
party to Immediate chaoge, by resolution,
proposed by those who have always held
to the theory put forward for endorsement,
The effect will generally be to destroy
every cbanco of success, by summoning the
ever prompt spirit of resentment which
scorns an implication of error or imputed
inconsistency. Now to apply our moral
Rome who profess to have the good of
the country uppermost la their thoughts,
wilh full knowledge that there was a spirit
ofreformatworkla the ranks of the Re
publican party, which, if left to itself, was
certain to produce the happiest results, but
unwisely or maliciously actuated, recently
Introduced resolutions in the House ol lie
presentatlves, having for their purpose, the
recognition of the Nlcholls ar.d Hampton
Governments as the lawful governments of
the States they eesay to control. Now,
while it is more thaa probable that la view
of all tho unhappy events which hare at
tended the continued conflict of elements
in those States, thero is at this moment a
majority of too Republican party la favor
ofguaranteelng to the Southern States en
tire Independence of the Federal power la
respect of their internal affairs while
there is a prospect that very early all the
better portion of the party will subscribe to
the policy, there was a solid voto against
the proposition. And it was all for no
other reason than that It Is not in the na
ture of man to vote censure upon his own
conduct all because there was Imprudent
haste, if there was pure motive la the
mover, or devilish Intent, if it was prompted
by a spirit of mischief. But while we
hope it will aot have any listing effects for
evil, we are sure it has retarded the general
movement
Tbe Republican party fully realises the
necessity for a change of policy In the
South, but it declines to be hurried forward
lb its course to suit the caprices of the Op
position. In Its own good time it will take
up the needed reforms and con
summate them. And when they are thus
accomplished, tbe country will be one la
interest, one la sentiment, aad one in
destiny.
RUSSIA'S GREAT MISSION.
Russia hss furnished to the world a most
wonderful example of a rude aad barbar
ous people, ca rrled forward through the
earnest force o( an energetic aad far-seeing
ruler, into a position of recognized equality
In tbe great family of nations.
The histories of Turkey and Russia are
as unlike as it is possible for histories to be.
Years ago when the Cossacks were a bar
birousasd lostgnlflcent people, the Ma
hommedans were to the full tide of their
power and opulence, and presented to the
world a practical realization of aa Arabian
Night's tale la which unquestioning faith,
unreasoning Intolerance, and a religious
enthusiasm at once fanatical and fierce,
constituted the animating machinery
through which the most wonderous achlvt
stents were accomplished, and the most
atrocious cruelties were perpertrated.
There was a tlmo when the whole of con
tinental Europe trembled at the power of
the Mussulman; at that period the Russ,
cold La clime aad cold la blood, was Ignor
ant and superstitious, filthy and degraded.
Bat when the Cossacks begaa to understand
the real virtues of clvlllzttlon he wooed
them vt lth aa eocrgy as fierce as that
with which the lion woos his bride.
Thus while the power of the Turk was
undermined aud began to decline from the
evil Influences of its religious fanaticism
and unrelenting hate of tbe Christian race,
the Russians began to advance la civiliza
tion and gradually rose to be aa almost
controlling power in the aualrs or conti
nental Europe.
Since the Turkish forces were defeated
at Zenta by frlnce Eugene of Savoy, la
tho latter part of the seventeenth century,
tbe crescent has gradually waned while
the strength of Russia has become more
and more pronounced until now we see
the very existence of Mustulmen rule la
Europe threatened with Irretrievable de
struction at the hands of the sturdy and
ever progressive Coisackt. Russia has but
one great mission, and that Is to crush out
forever every vestige of Mahammedan
power north of the Golden Horn. To this
end she is now exerting all her powers,
and tbe course of events will not pints ia
this direction until the prophecy hu been
fulfilled that "the Turk entered Europe by
ttsswoidaad will Icav: Uhy the Jirorl"

SOUTH I'AnOUNA TUOUklLKS
It Is a sad condition of affairs In a nation
when the crime of theft should be made
tbe ground work for a dangerous political
uprising. Such, however, Is the case In
South Carolina to-day. According to our
dispatches this morning, a thousand white
and black men will meet at a place near
Green Fond, called the Dlue Store, for the
purpose of arrcstlnga colored thief, who has
resisted the authorities on the grouud that
a warrant Issued by tho Hamftok govern
ment tvu invalid, becauso & Judgo of the
State has pronounced Bouth Carolina
without a de facto government This stato
of affairs cannot exist long In a State with
out the most serious and blighting conss
quences. A dual form of government,
with two political factions, the one arrayed
against the other, cannot fall to brlng an
archy to the commonwealth where the
duality is allowed to exist by the National
Government We hope that South Carolina
will soon know who la to be the ruler of
Its people, that they may ascertain what
laws to obey and what mandates to respect
Centennial VommUvhinert
The ci tire til of Fblladelphta have presented
Mr. John Wilch, the sum of fifty thousand
dollari, with which to found a professorship
tn Mi name In the University of Pennsylvania.
As Chairman of the Centennial Board of
Finance, Mr. Welch: did much to Insure the
success of the Centennial Exhibition, and It is
well that hta aervlces hare been thus hand
somely recognUed. But no one seems to have
considered the services of the United States
Centennial CommUtloneri. Commlutoned
from each State and Territory by the Presi
dent under act of Congress, they were hard
at work for a year, before the Board of Finance
was organized, and are still attending to their
officii, duties.
Berilng without compensation, and many of
them at great personal inconvenience, tbey
have performed an amount of labor such as
hu never before fallen to the lot of a body of
volunteer workers in this country, and they
have brought great honor to the Nation by
their patriotism, Integrity and good manage
ment. The Exhibition U universally admitted
to have been the finest aver held It would
be a graceful act for Congress to give a vote of
thanks to tbe Commluleners.
Trie excitement Is Increasing In regard to
the gold regions of the Black mils.
Actlre preparations are being made
by parties In New York, St. Louis,
Chicago and other cities to migrate
to that charmed bourne early tn the spring.
It Is estimated that fifty thousand persona
will visit that country during tbe present
eesson. This number added to those already
there will swell the population of the
Hills to ilxty or seventy thousand.
As a general thing this popu
lation will be made up of adventurers and a
rough class, who will need the restraining In
flnencesof rigidly enforced laws to keep that
country from a state of anarchy and confu
ston. At present a portion of tbat section Is
not definitely understood to be under the con
trol of any of the courts of Wyoming, Mod"
tana or Dakota. There Is consequently a con-
fllct of authority, and when two authorities
are up neither are supreme. For this reason
It is ;belleved that the wisest thing Con
gress can do Is to make a separate Terri
tory of the Black IIUls region, and thus
settle the perplexing question, and give to the
large number of people there, and those now
on their way, besides the thousands who will
soon follow, a cool government and protect
tlog laws. This will have to bo done sooner
or later, and If dons during the present sea
alonof Congress, It will save that region from
a dangerous state of anarchy during the com
ln season.
Congressman Gun Eit Is trying to make
himself odious tn the House by contemplating
a foolish resolution looking to the expulsion of
General Garviild. If this Is really his In
tention, he Is attempting that which will not
only react upon him, but will reflect upon tbe
character and respectability of tho committee,
of which he Is chairman. The testimony
upon which Gloveu proposes to base his reso
lution, Is simply a re-hash of tho Di Goltir
testimony taken about three years ago, In
which It was proven that Mr, Gabfiild re
ceived 13,000 as legitimate attorney's fees,
and nothing else. Now, Mr. Glovxr In a
spirit of party malice proposes to present a
resolution of expulsion, based upon these
facts. He might as well attempt to push the
suns from their course

We wish tbat the prophesy of the great
lawyer had been fulfilled, but the Vermont
trick which the filibusters thrust upon the
House yesterday, destroyed the prediction,
sent alarm broad cast throughout the coun

busters hare perpetuated upon the nation,

The House met at 10 o'clock, and rometatscclla
neous business was transacted by unanimous con

or political aiaabitltlci were taken up and passed.
At 10 'M the regular order (which was tbo com Id.

demanded.
Mr. O'URIEN, one of the filibusters, at once
ratted tbetiucpilon whether thero was a quorum.
Tho BPKAKtK counted the House and an.

Mr. wool ( N. Y.I, rose to offer a resolution.
Mr. WALLlNu (Oblo), moved a call or the

Tbe SPEAKER said that tho effect or the mo

Tbe question was first taken by tellers, aad re.

that the motion was clearly or a dilatory char,

under tho electoral law ho would not entertain
motions ror delay, and It was not competent to
offer tbem. This motion was of no practical
effect. It was only Intended to consume tlmo.
The SPEAK Eh said be had never held that a
motion to reconsider was not In order, and there
fore bo would entertain tho motion.
Mr. HALE moved to lay tho motion to recon
elder on tbe table, and the latter motion was
agreed to yeas IT, najs 65.
Mr. WOOD (N.Y.) then eike J consideration
of the resolution he had pent up.
Mr. roi'l'LETON (Ohio) and Mr. CAUL.
FIELD (111.) both claimed the flooron what they
stated to to questions ot the highest privilege.
Mr. CAULVlLLU said that nil resolution was
of the highest privilege, and bore directly upon
tbe question under consideration, tbe Vermont
count.
Tbe SPEAKER could not judge or degrees ot
privilege. Tbe question of proceeding with the
count was of the highest privilege. He Tell
bound to recognise the gentleman from Ohio (Mr.
ForrLKTO.f). who had objected to tbe vote of
Vermont.
Mi.t'OPPLETONsald he would yield to Mr.

Tbe SPEAKER said that eould not be done.
The gentleman was assigned the door for a spa

The SPEAKER said that when Mr. Wood or

that propriety demanded that bo should recog.

that it will not proceed to the count until tbe

Without action the hoar of 12 o'clock arrived,
and the Speaker directed yesterdar's lournal to

to wsste time the reading in txttnto was de

Mr. SPRINGER made point or order aTer

question was settled by suspending tho rules and
dispensing with the reading of tbo journal
Mr. WOOD then made a point of order that the

Mr.'OAULFIELD. (Ill ), said there was an ob
stacle in tbe way of the count, and tbat wis that
apaperparportfng to be a certificate had not
been opened. When tbe President of the Senate
received that package it was bis doty to open It.
When that duly was performed tbe count would
Jo on, for It appcaredoya telegram presented
bat a duplicate was deposited with the clerk of
the District eourt at Montteller.
Alter a good deal or heated discussion as to
whether the resolution should be entertained the
Hmakeh said that he thought groat wrong hat
been done yesterday by tbe refusal ofthe presi
dent ofthe Joint convention to open tho certificate
presented, and wbloh bora all tbe marks of a
legal certificate. That was a grievous wrong.but
he did not think that the action of tbe convec
tion could be reviewed here. Uut It was alleged
tbat a paper bad boon taken away, and the
House bada right, he thought, to demand tho
return of that reaper. It tho resolution was
aaopieu, it wouiu no in order.
Mr. OAULFIELD then modified his resolu
tion so as to request tbe return of tbe sealed
package from tho Senate, that Itbeopened In
the presence ol the two Houses, and tbat nntll
that was done tbe count should not proceed.
Mr. WOOD moved as a substltue a resolution,
tbat the vote of H. M. Solace, as one of the
oji.vivi va vh, ui.n ui i ai uauui, arts uut vuaukSUi
Another resolution, relating to the return of
tbo sealed package waa then ottered, when a large
number of points of order were Interposed against
Mr. Wood' substitute, but the Steaks ruled
It In order.
Mr. EDEN, (111.) enquired whether the debate
should not now coumenoe, as the resolutions
were offered.
Ihe SPEAKEIt ruled tbat all the amenl
meats that could be offered were now In. and tbat
the debate must proceed under tbe electoral aot.
Several members rose to points of order.
Mr. OAULMELD. Do I understand tbe
SrBAKin to rule tbat tbe two boars' debate mast
now evmmenfeT
The SPEAKEIt, The gentleman understands
tbo ruling nerlectly.
Demands were made for the regular order.
M r. CAULt IELD was heard above the din and
confusion to appeal from tbe decision of the
Chair.
TheSPEAKEBtecllned to entertain the ap
peal. (Jippiaaiooniaenoerana in me gauec

Mr O'llEiair, Mr. Srnraix, Mr. ForrtxTOw,
Mr. Dekbe, od olhr gentlemen, made etTirts to
be beard, and the reatest exoltement prevailed

tbe ttFKAKRi. and Insisted upon fell recognising
tbe epp al that was taken by Mr. Oauxtibld.
Ibe Itcputllctns flailed him to order, tbe

toiecognliehlm, wt en be mounted up m a desk
etdltudty demanded the recognition of the op

sod the crowded galleries,
Tho SrrAicm continued to rap with his gavel,
the Kepulllo'ns calledto order, tho Demo-rats
applauded, I ! cs came from different parts of
tbe floor and the galleries, and above all rose Iht
voice of Mr. Hrrbk demanding that thcSnuatn
slate the reasons Tor hot entertaining tho appeal.
Mr. llia'l was ordered to take hlssear, and A
nslly got down from the desk on which lie was
stan dl eg, nd went Mcktn his own seat, where,
however, ho continued to demand recognition.
Soineoftbemombers demanded that the galls.
rles be cleared, others that the crow I standing In
the lobby In tbe rear of tbe members seats, be
dnvtu irom the Hall, and thoeonfunlon andev
rltcmtni was more Interne than anything that
ba yet been witnessed on the floor.
Ihe SPEAKER, who had borne the numerous
pointsofordrr and other annoyances of tho day
wilh equable temper, at last began to lose
patience, and after lie had restored comparative
order, he said ho was determined not to permit
tbe disorder any longer. He would insist that
gentlemen must take their seats.
Tho determined manner In which he spoke
elicited applause from tho Republican side and
In tbe galleries, while the Democrats renewed
the disorder and demanded to b beard.
The SPEAKER hoped tbat gentlemen would
remember that they were members of the Ameri
can Congress.
Mr. SPARKS (111) said excitedly that they
d d icmember tbat, but tbo presiding officer must
remember tbat he is only tho Speaker of the
House, while those on the floor represented the
Tne SPEAKER directed tbe floor to be
cleared of all who were not privileged, and the
crowd took refuge In tbo cloak room, but tbe
racers were directed to drive them thence also.
Order was comparatively restored when Mr.
OAULFIELD again rose and Insisted upon bis
appeal from the decision of the Uit air. and asked
the UHAiRto allow him to speak to his point of
order.
Mr. PAOF. wanted to know If tho gentleman
wanted to talk all day.
Mr. OAULFIELD would talk as long as It was
necessary to defend tbe rights or the American
people.
The SPEAKER said thero were other people
here who could defend tbelr rights. (Applause )
He wanted to callattenUon to the feet that tho
faper was not In the possession ot the House, but
hat It was taken br anoffleer of the Senate, and
when Mr. Hewitt demanded It tbat officer
refused to give It up.
Mr. HEWITT, (N. Y.), said there was a slight
mistake In that statement. Ho had never de
n ended tossesslon of tho paper after he had de
livered It at the desk. He went up, however, to
look at It and the Secretary of the Senate said tt
was tho private property oi Mr. Fannr, and that,
as his friend, be would take charge of It.
Mr. KASSON, (Iowa.), said he was authorised
to say tbat neither Mr. Fibrt nor Mr. Oorkav
took tbe package with them. They let It lay on
tbe clerk's desk.
Mr. STONE said that be saw Mr. Oonnm
pnt tho paper in his pocket.
The SPEAKER then tefused to entertain any
further motions for delay or appeals, but said
that the dehato must now proceed.
BIT. E.If.111, I a.l, Walt. liriV rfJOUgUlstnu, UU.
was interrupted by Mr. Hrwitt, (M. Y.), who
said that be wanted to call attention t9 the fact
tbat a messenger had just handed hlra the sealed
package and he had declined to receive It.
A member asked who handed It to blm.
Mr. HEWITT pointed to a page from tho Sen.
ate who was standing near by with a package
in his band.
The8PEAKERsaldirthere was no objection
be would secure the package.
Objections were made by both Republicans and
Democrats.
Tbe debate then progressed, but most of the
speakers reiterated tbo arguments that bare
been so often made.
Mr. JOYUE.(Vt.), thought It very strange
tbat tbe gentleman from New York should
bave held the package spoken of since tbe 16th of
December, and that no one knew of It until withla
a. day or two.
Mr, HOOKER (Mass.) reiterated what he said
yesterday, tbat the House was not bound to take
cognlianeo of tbe decisions of tbe Commission be
cause it bad violated law.
Mr. LEVY regretted tbe result, but adrocated
acquleecenee. lie said, In conclusion: "I believe
t rut hlti 1 assurances from prominent members of
the Republican party, high tn tbe confidence of
Mr. Hayes, that in the event of bla election to tbe
Presidency bo will be guided by a policy of
conciliation toward tbe Southern States; that bo
will not urt the t ederal authority or the army to
toroo on tloso States governments not of their
cholcei tut In the ease of these States will
leave their own people to settle the matter peace-
aoiy ror tneraseivee "
Mr. tlABFlELD said that If the President of
the Joint Convention could be compelled to re
ceive and open this package, bo could be com
pel led to receive any package that any individual
might make as a certlfieate, provided no could get
any Senator or member to present It in Joint
mi c tlog. He sent to tbe Clerk's desk and bad
read a letter from Mr. (lorham. Secretary of the
Senate, stating that when the package was sent
up yesterday, he did place the paper in his pocket,
but, upon the suggestion ot Mr. Ferry, that bis
act might bo construed Into an acceptance of It,
be took it from bis pocket and put It on the desk,
InfullTlcwof tho tellers, and left it there when
the Senate retired.
Mr. O'BRIEN called attention to tbe fact that
tbe package was now In tbe House, in the custody
ola page of the Sena.e, who refused to tell from
whom he received it.
Mr.OAltFIDLD (sneerlngly). "When AJax
and the other chiefs of the Democracy settle tbelr
difficulties 1 will goon."
He then proceeded to ergoo tbat a vote for the
resolution requiring tbe President ofthe Senate
to open tbe package was a voto In the Interest or
delay, and Its tendency to cast tbo country Into
anarchy.
Mr. SLONE, (Mo.), ssld In reference to tbo
package, he desired to repeat that Mr. Qofiham
had put It In his jrockat, as a teller at tbe desk he
had seen the movement. lie eould not say
whether be took it out again or not.
Mr. FIELD, (N. Y.), regretted that this whole
day should have been oocuplod In an attempt to
rectify a grerlous mistake made by the President
or tli a Hei-iite. That mistake waa ona which lha
ine jtouse ougnt to recti ry, ue Knew noining or
the contents of the package. He did not know
whether it contained a proper certificate or not.
Be only knew tbat the President ofthe Senate
had decided for himself, and of bis own motion,
a quest lcit which should hare been decided by the
two Houses. Thero was no law, be said, at what
time the certificates sbcnld bo transmitted to tbo
President or tbe Senate.
Mr. HOAB said the law of 170J fixed the time.
Mr. F1LLD said tbe law did not, and you
Judges on the Commission declared that you
could not go behind a State law to ascertain facts.
Iniolnt of fact the certificate was presented In
rrtiper form, anu in the presence of the two
louses. The House should put its heet down on
the doctrine tbat the President of tbe Senate
could dtclde the question.
The debate being closed, a vote was then taken
on Mr. Kkott'b substitute that the House re
quest toe return or toe pacnage tendered ny jar.
Hewitt, and tbat It should be opened by the
President of tbe Senate in the presence of the two
Houses, and If It was found to be a proper ecrUfi
cate, that H sbobld be submitted to tbo Electoral
Com mil slon for Its decision, and that tho Senato
make an order for the return of the paokage.and
that tbe count do not proceed nntll tbe package
la opened In the presence of the two Houses,
This resolution was rejected by a vote of 119
yeas to 148 nays.
Mr. HOPKINS then offered a resolution em
bracing tbe text of tbe above, except that so
much was stricken out as declined, tbe count
should not proceed nntll the package was opened.
This was afro rejected. Yeasiie, nays lis.
Mr. LANEmtved to reconsider the vote by

Mr. WOOD said tbe SriAKin must los tbat this

Mr. WALL1NQ, and others, How do you know

Mr. OAULFIELD made tbe point or order
tbat tbe House had not been discussing tbat

discussion on this resolution.
Tbe UHAlIt overruled tbat point of order, and
