This was said w ith tremendous erfect hv

Wasiiinotox. May 17. The .iublican
Congressional Committee has issii'd the
To tier V.iIits ofil.e fnlt-il Stat.'.:
The DemiK iatic House of Hepresentatives
has to-day, by a Jiarty vote, adojited u reso
lution which, und ! the pretense of an in
vestigation, is to lay the foundation for a
revolutionary cxjnilsion of the president
from his oilii e. This is the culmination of
a pint which has been on foot from Uie day
Hayes nml Wheeler were constitutionally
declared elected. It made its first public
ftppeuraiK". iu a resolution of the last
Deinorratir House. ,'nl..)(. il at the close of
the session, declarinir that Tilden and Hen
dricks were elected. Tilden and Hendrick
subsequently made similar public declara
tions themselves. A few timid members
have lonif held back, and some of them,
ait. r b-'ini.' coerced to a final vote, still
pretend that they will halt as
soon as their jiartial and one
si'ded investiifatioii shall be ended. In oth
er words they intend after hearing stubborn
evidence to briny in a verdict that Haves
is n usurjier and shall not remain in oilice,
These men have control of the Democratic
party. They dared not even follow Alexan
der H. Stejihens in a unit ayainst caucus
dictation to the extent of show ing the sem
blance of fair play. They will be impotent
in the future as they have been in the past.
More, if is difficult to believe in their sincer
ity in view of the public avowal of their
1'iirty. that it: purpose is. if possible, to dis
j.luce the president. It is a matter of histo
ry that the resolution just adopted was
framed to express this object. The speaker
of the house was consulted in advance us to
whether he would rule that it was a J.rivi
leyed question. The party manaifers were
anxious to conceal their JiUVpose
if iossib!e. Iii this they were
defeated by the speaker, who
would vote it a question of privilege unless
it clearly assailed the title of the president.
The resolution beiny offered, he read a
carefully jirejiated opinion, decidinif it to
be a question of the liiifhest privilege, be
cause it involved a question of the validity
of Hayes' title. Here are his very words;
"A hiifher privilege than the one here in
volved and broadly and directly present al

LITTLE HOB. THE 'CABIN BOY.
There is not one of us, however youn.y,
says the Youth's Visitor, but he may do
some yood. Every little child can be use
ful. I will tell you how useful a little
cabin boy was, who was sailiny on u large,
shiji over the wide sea.
It hajijieiied th.t on the voyaye the sai'
ors quarreled wit.i the cujitain, who was so
proud and overlteariny that none would
submit to him. This yave tin captain so
much trouble mia preyed so much on his
siirits, that he became very ill, so ill as
to be confined to his bed. None of the
sailors cured for him, no he lay there very
ill, and all alone. No one thouyht of
sjieakiny a kind word to the jxior sick cap
tain but Little Bob. His Bible hail tauyhr.
him a lesson which the sailors know nothiny
aliout. It had tauyht him to be kind to
everybody, even those who had Used hint
ill; so he stole softly to the captain's door
and knocked. "Who's there;" asked the
captain iu a very yrutf voice. ''Its Little
Bob. sir; can I do anything for your" "0
to your work, you scoundrel." cried the
caitain in an iinyry tone; 'don't come,
"Little Bob stole away even more softly
than he came, but his heart was not rilled
with an anyry fecliny. He pitied the cap
tain even more than he had done before.
The next day he resolved to try ayain.
He saw that the ioor cajitain was not on
'let k. and ayain he went and knocked at
the door. "Who's there:" ''Ca)taiii can I
do anythiny for you to-day:" asked Little
noli. ".No. no; yo away, said the cajitain.
Bob was jileased that the cajitain did net
sjieak in so harsh a voice as he did the day
before, and he made ujt his mind to try
ayain. Meantime the captain's heart
yrew warm toward the little fel
low, lie thoiiyht how differently he
had acted from the unfeeliny sail
ors, who had not once inquired for him all
th" time of his illness, and he dctermineti
that if he came ayain, he would let him in.
When Bob came next day. the cajitain
said, "Come in." J5ob walked in on tiptoe.
ami sain, very lenucriy, "flense, sir, can I
do anythiny for you :'' Miall I make your
bed, or yet you a C1IJ) of coffee.'" Twill
do it in a minute. "Well, Bob, you may, if
you like." said the cajitain. Away ran jtob,
ami in a few minutes everythiny w as ready,
the coffee, and the hot toast, and he broiiyht
it on a tray to the cajitain's bedside. Bob
always carried with him the Bible iii his
iocket; and as he came in the room, the
cajitain observed it.
"What book is that.'" said he. -'It is the
book my mother yave me." said Bob. "the
nicest book you ever saw." "Can you read
if. Bob:" "Oh, yes. sir," said Bob; "and!
should like to rend it to you." ''Aye, you
may," said the cajitain. "As soon us I have
finished my coffee you may beyin." Bob
cleared away the "coffee and sat himself
down on the box at the side of the cajitain's
bed. ami oiciied on the history of Jesus,
and read how He went alnnit doiny yood;
how H" Jiitied the wretched; how Helieal
cd the si, k and foryave their sins. The
t !iitain listened very attentively uml asked
the boy to come ayain the next day.
From this time he came every day mi l
instructed the poor cuprum in the knowl
edye of Jesus the Savior. He asked him
many questions, and Bob knew how to an
swer them thanks to his mother iiiid.to
his Sunday school.
One cveniny the cajitain said, ''Leave mo
that book of yours. Bob; I should like to
lo.,k at it myself." Hub willinytv left it
The next morniny he went a usuiil nml tap

Ayain hetapiedand louder. Still no answer.
Heojieiied the door ami walked in. Tin cap
tain w ason his knees, uml the Bible w as lyiny
ojien on the chair before him. Bob spoke;
still there was no answer. lie came nearer;
the ca.tain never stirred. He looked; the
captain was dead. He had died on his
knees, j.rayiny over thtt Bible. We trust
that throiiyh the instructions of little Bob
he had souyht and found mercy nt the.
hands of the Saviour of sinner. Is there a
little boy or yhl, now readiny this, who
cannot do as much as this jioor cabin-lioy?
