Howard was seen in the street on yes
terday. If it were advisable to impeach
i nanuier as a liar anu demagogue,
there would not beadissenting voice.
Singulation Is rife as to how the
postponement will atlcet themiestion.
The general conviction is, the delay
will be to the advantage of tho Presi
dent. The lmneachers Rcem to think that
during tlie Interval, home public
sentiment can be brought to bear
upon Senators: and dispatches signed
by Schenck, Chairman of the Nation
al Republican Committee, has been
sent to leading Radicals In Maine,
Iowa, Illinois and Missouri, to bring
nil possible appliances to affect nnd
secure Senators. Tennessee Radicals
are already nursing Fowler.
The fourleadingSenators who have
struck dismay to the heart of the
Radical cohorts by their bold and pa
triotic course cannot lie moved, tint
arrangements are already concluded,
as I Intimated last night, to secure
the wavering Senators. If It fails,
tne vote will lie postponed again Sat'

On returning from the RctiKto. Tir.
Donnelly, of Minn., obtained leave
to make a personal explanation. He
then made a statement relative to his
presenting a bill some time since to
aid a railroad In his State, to the con
struction of which Mr. Woshburne
objected. , Subsequently Mr. Wash-
burne wrote a letter to the constitu
ent of Mr Donnelly,, making cer
tain cnarges regarding Donnelly'a
previous political record and action ln
Mft. DONNELLY, after causing
tlie letter to bo read, said it contained
twenty-three falsehood, and conttn
ued In vindication of himself, cliarao
terizing Wash burne' s course in charg
ing him with being an office begcar
as inconsistent and i coming with
bad grace from a gentleman of his
family ; name. The Washlmrnes nr
chronic offlce beggars, and are as mis
erable and uncomfortable out of ofllco
as a stump-tailed bull In fly timo.
Every male born into the W'ash burne
family, is born -with M. C; franked
on his broadest part. :
After further comments Mr. Don
nelly said he had analysed the stom
ach of tho gentleman from Illinois,
and If it is possible for him by his per
istalic action to bring up anything
more loathsome and disgusting than
he lias vomited over me in that letter,
in God'a name let it come. i. . i
The Speaker called Mr. Donnelly
to order twice. '; . i
Mr. Donnelly occupied his hour in
a similar strain, nnd was allowed to
proceed by consent of the House, Mr.
Wasbburne joining in urging that he
have permission to proceed.
Mr. DONNELLY continued ina
strain of vindicative retort to disap
prove the charges made in the letter,
his remarks being received with great
good humor by the members. .
Mr. DONNELLY concluded by
saying that Mr. Wasbburne had low
ered tho honor of Congress. If, said
he, there be in our midst one low, sor
did, vulgar soul, one barren of intelli
gence, uno heart callous to every
kindly sentiment and to every gener
ous emotion, one tongue leprous with
slander, one mouth like unto a den of
foul beasts, , giving lortn deadly

is the gentleman irom llinois.
The SPEAKER, with severity in
his tones, stated to Mr. Donnelly that
h is remarks were not honorable to tne
it T ...:..... nn,l 1 ... 4-

although the House had tolerated
them, the Chair could - not consent
that they should go on the record ex
cept with his protest.
Mr. DONNELLY begged pardon
of the House, but the House would
acknowlexe that no member had met
with so vile nn assault as he.,
i Mr. WASHBURNE. of Illinois.
said, during my entire time of service
m this xiouse, i nave never nsKea
leave to make a personal explana
tion, and I never expect to. The par
ty from Minnesota has had the letter
which I wrote to a gentleman in that
State read to the , House, and it has
gone on tlie record. Every assertion
made in that letter ia true, and who
ever says It is not true, states what is
false. . If I were called on, and I de
sire to say this, if I, under any opera
tion of circumstance, were cailou on
to make a personal explanation in re
ply to a memlier. It would not be toa-
memiierwho had committed a crime.
It would not be toa member who ran
away. It would not be to a member
who had changed his name. It
would not be to a member whose
whole record in the House is covered
with corruption and crime.
The SPEAKER reminded Mr.
Wushlmrne that his remarks '
M r. WASH BURNE was sorry the
Chair supposed him out or order. "1
refieat, if I were called upon to make
a ersonal explanation I should make
it with a member not covered with
crime and iufamy, whoe record Is
stained with every fraud, whisky and
other frauds; not with a man who has
proved false ulike to his friends, his
country, his constituents, his politics,
his relitrion. and his God."
Mr. WINDOM gave notice that he
should oiler a resolution of censure on
