There is an amusing story of Con
gresman Gurley, from the second
Ohio district, going the rounds of the
lau' hter-loving circles of the city.
lmdey was one of the "fussy con
g~eaet," that was "anxious to
aish" galpowder" and who, if the
sory is true, and it is alnmdantl. 1
eached. for, "had enough of it." A
lp mineut citisen of Toledo tell.
-ha- being anxious to see a "ribel
rout," he hired a buggy in VWashing
teo, got a pass, and put fur the bat
tleild. When he arrived there he
hed his horse in a ravine, near an
ce, where were collected some
or sixty congressmen and other
direiss. ie had not been in posi
tion long before Dr. McMiHllian, a
Ssurgeon'of the Ohio troops, came and
advised the spectators to leave,
t*ough unable to give any satisfacto- r
ry reason for his advice. Very soon
however, the eyes of the civiliants saw
a ght thatwas not in the bills, and t
which inspired them with a sudden
desire for leave-takipg. They saw,
in the distance, men tumbling with
great energy the contents of wagons
in the road, and . wipping the hor
ses forward with great fury, while *
others were cutting the traces, moun- v
tigtkhehorses and putting Washing- 1
toaard with"all the speed they could °
command. But, worse than all, they t'
behold further back an immense bo- r
dy of eavalry, with drawn sabers, a
approaching, and which they know
were not federal troops.
Citizens of Tolodo put for the ra
vine after his buggy, but could not
.fd it, as it had been removed.

It has been solemnly decided that

that the proclamation of martial law
by a military officer is not sufficient.

n The Lincoln organs are irressilhh
d in their abuse of each other and their

instance, says McDowell's army
was 50,000 strong, spread out over
a ten miles; and-that the Enquirer was
, Ity of "Gloomy Treason" for as
s"rting that the Confederates had as
e many as 20,000 around Bull Run ;
e then the next day it roundly swears
the Confederates had over 90,000.

Ia lortioi of the debate which took
v place in the United States Congress
:. olthe 2Lth inst. It shows that
t Scott fought the battle of Manassas
t (it his own word can be crelitedlun
a der the urgent pressare of Lintcol':
Mr. Richardson-I repeat thdl
Gen. Scott had been forcted to tight
this battle. I will tell him what o,.
curred.yesterday morning. My col.
leagues (Logan and WVashburne) anld
myself, were present with the P're
sident, Secretary of War, and Gen,
I Scott. In the course of our couver
I satiun,Gen.Scottremarked: "I am the
º biggest coward in the world." I rose
from my seat. "Stay," said Gen.
Scott, "1 will prove it. I have fought
the battle against tmy judgment, and
I think tlh President ought to removun
me to-day thr doing it." "As God
is my judge," he added, after an in
terval of silence, ''I did all in my
power to make the army efficient, and
I deserve removal because I did not
stand up wheni 1 could aid did not."
I stand here to vindicate Gen.
Scott. 1 am indebted to the gentle
man from Missouri for the compli
ment he paid tme. I desire to say
for myself that 1 am here the last of
a generation, my father and grand
father having fallen beneath the flag
of their comuntry. I, too, have fouglht
under its folds, at home and abroad,
and God willing, there I will stand
till the end of my life, defending it
against all forces.
Mr. Washburne-As my colleague
has referred to Gen. Scott's remarks,
he might also allude to what the
Mr. Riclmrdson-I will do so.
"Your conuvrsation implies." said
the P'resident to Gh.n. Scott, "that I
forced you to battle." To which
(;en. Scott replied : "I have never
served under a P'resident who has
been kinder to tii(i than you haive

the ablest and most distinguished
men of the country; men whose
names were familiar to the whole
country-some of them destined to
pass into history. The new wings
of the Capitol had been but just re
cently finished, in all their gorgeous
magnificence, and, except a hundred
marines at the navy yard, not a sol
dier was within fi,rty miles o|f Wash
Sir, the Congress of the United
States nmtetis here again to-day; but
