For three mortal hours the IIouso

Pennsylvania delegation cot fired up on
tho tariU'questlon, resulting iu tho most
bitter denunciation, rrom mat quarter,
of Mr. Wells and his report. Mr. Cake,

replied, repudiating the charge. McCar
thy, of the same State, reiterated it sub

as that of tho revolution, had Its Bene
dict Arnold. Ho tilted with Cook, of
Illinois, and told the latter goutleman
that ho had made a false statement; to
which Cook replied that he did not uso
such language. Logan and Kelly then
got into a row. ixigan said that tho
Congressional llepublican Commltteo
had distributed one of Kelly's high tarlir
speeches as a campaign document.
Kelly said that was not true. Logan
said it wan true. Mr. Kelly retorted that
Mr. Logun knew it was not correct; to
which Mr. Logan replied that ho couldn't
hold any further controversy with Mr
Kelly. Jloth got very red iu tho faco.
The members laughed very immoderato-
ly, and the Speaker hammered for quiet.
The result of tho debate showed that the
Western Democrats and Itepublicans
were united against the Pennsylvania
and other protective tariff Interest. Tho
House, by a large majority, voted to
print Mr. Wells' report.

appears that a number of porsoas were
drinking and carousing iu the saloon,
and that a general meleu was going on,
In which weapons were freely used.
Ono of tho parties, u mau named Don

Pearey fell blooding profusely, ami dlwd
