Mn. NonuoFF, of the New York
I rald, allays the fbars of the people.
He says that Washington is just now
the quietest place in the world, that
Zach Chandler is hobnobbing with
Confederate brigadlers instead of
chewing their bones, and that no such
volcanic eruption is imminent as
partisan Journals prophesy. The
Greenbackers have not succeeded in
their plot to capture Congress, and
Hayes is not fearing revolution. Al
together the situation is by no mcans
TtnE REPORT from Washington that
the Attorney General of South Caro
lina had sent a free and full pardon to
Patterson for all his misdeeds, has
already been mentioned. This natur
ally caused some excitement, and
Governor Simpson and Colonel You
mans were interviewed. Both denied
knowledge of any such thing. Pat
terson telegraphs from Washington
that the assertion was made by
"Corbin's crew" in order to provoke
a denial. On the other hand, the
Washington agent of the Associated
Press says the information was given
by Patterson. Satisfied that the State
authorities have not been so foolish,
it will make little difference to the
people whether Corbin or Patterson
strted thi lie.
A stronTr of the News and Cou
'i r *et out the other day to interview
eaator Hampton. After a perfect
Stanley expedition he discovered the
South Carolina statesman in a boat
on a pond in the swamps of Colleton,
quietly fishing for trout. The Senator
refused to come ashore, but a threat
being made that the reporter would
swim in and have an interview any
bow, he surrendered. Ile hoped to
be able to attend the extra session.

diseased bone, but nature or a sur

In a month or so. Senator Hampton
was positive in the conviction that
Congress should never yield until the
law suffering Federal interference in
-electipns be repealed. The Democrats
should fight it out on that line all sum
suer. Senator Hampton is eminently
wise, and his opinion on this point is
worth a great deal.
Ta G--ENACKERs ought to go out
'and die. Their whole fight, ostensi
bly, is to get greenbacks. The result
of their ef'orts has been to divide the
Democratic vote and elect hard money
RIadicals-slaves of the money kings.
The few Congressmen elected are now
scheming to effect a deadlock in the
llouse, the consequence of which
could only be the election to the
speakersldp of Gardeld, the hardest
money man in Congress, and the
advocate of all the Rtadical rase;ality.
Instead of forming new clubs, and
preparing for another contest, which
can result only in letting in a Radical
minority as was the case in 1800, the
Greenbackers had better disband and
join the old recognized party that
will give them a better chance of
relief flrom their real or fanc.ied ills.
At the South, the Greenbackers can
but destroy Democratic supreniacy
and leave the balance of power in the
hands of the Radicals. Altogether the
Greenback movement 16 one from
which no practical good can result.

Th~e New York Herald has been in

Congressmen were Interviewed. Of

nineteen were for Tilden and ten for
Banyard. About forty were non-comn
inittal. Congressmen Aiken and
Evinis expressed a prefbrence for
Thurman, as his financial views are
in accord with Southern ideas. It
will be seen that Thurman has gained
great strength of late, especially
among the Democrats in Washington.
In 1876 he was barely mentionmed in
the conyention. He has, however,
inade himself the leader in the exist

long as thais is the overshadowing

WAsHINUroN, D. C., March 8.-The
principal events of last week in this
city were the closing acts of the Forty
fifth Congress. This body, during the
last two weeks of the session, seemed
suddenly to be seized with a super
abundance ofofenergy and patriotism,
and the closing days were
distinguished by continuous day-and
night sessions-including the hst two
Sundays. Many of the members, too,
had no doubt an ulterior motive, to
makea figure atthe close of their politi
The house assembled at 9, a. in.,
Sunday, aher a recess of a few hours,
having been in session all night. The
bill in regard to arrears of pensions
was then passed. The original bill
appropriates $25,000,000 for this pur
pose. The committee on the ''legisla
tive bill" reported disagreement, and
the committee on the repeal of the ju
rors' test oath, supervisors law, and
deputy marshals, were unable to ngree
up to the close of the session.
The Senate, after taking a recess
front 8:30 to 10, a. ml., assembled at
the latter hour. Mr. Ferry was elected
president pro tern., Mr. Wheeler hav
ing given notice that he would not
again preside at the session.
The only business of special public
imnportanca was the passage of the
House bill to prevent the introduction
and spread of contagious diseases.
An executive session was held from
halt-past ten to htaltpast eleven. Dur
ing this time, the crowd in the halls
and corridors became so great that the
door-keeper hat to put them back two
or three times. When the doors were
thrown open a rush was made for
seats, and the galleries were soon
crowded to their utmost capacitv. The
spectators had not long to wait,'as the
bills from the House were beim,( read
rapidly, and with them time did by
swiftly. At 11 :58 a suggestion was
made that the presiding officer~ turn
his attention awvay for a nmomnent, and
this beinmg gracefully accomnpli shed
the door-keeper turned thte' clock
back to five nmnutes to twelve. 'This
drew applause front the galleries. As
the time piece ran up to that hour the
gavel of the presiding officer fell, and
the Fortyv-fifth Conugress was "'mnber
ed with thme things that were.''
As previously stated, an extra ses
sion has beent called fo)r the 18th inst.,
ostensibly to providie fo)r thue armty;
and it is a curious coincidence that the
Democrats will come inito possession of
the Senate with thme samte majority
ther had when they last controlled it,
eighteen years ago. Thte following is
an estimate of tihe new Con gress:
Senate-Democr~ats 42, Riepulicans
82, Independents 1, vacancy 1. House
-emocrats 138, Republ icins 128, Na
tionals 22, vacancies 6. This is the
calculation muade by the Nationals.
The Democrats claim, huowever, one
hunudred and forty-six, exclusive of
Independents and vacancies. As fourm
of' the vacanucies inm the House are
from California, whtich is alnmost sute
to go Democratic in conseqjuentce of
the President's veto of the antti-Chintese
bill, thte Democrats wuill be almost sure
to control thme new House, as they
also have unudisputed control of the
Senate This extra session is the
seventh in the history of thte
coumitry, twvo having been ca lied by
Mr. Hayes. Owving to the shaortntess
of the vacation, most of the members
re-elected to thme itew Congress remain
ini the city.
The Potter Coinmittee sentt in their
report before thme a(giournment. Theo
majority rep)ort, signed by several
members, covers eighty-five pages of
closely printed matter. Their charges
of forgery of the Florida and Lou isi
anta certificates in the last Presidential
election anro supported by such a mass
of evidence as cannot be successfully
confuted. Thuis is supplemented by a
separate pap)er, sIgned by Genm. B. F.
IButler', and agreeinhg it the main wvith
'the majority. Thte mhluority report of
three members maintains that the ee
tion was fair; refers at length to the
cipher despatheos, and condenmns thie
mannter in which the investigation
was conducted, &c.
As this is Lent visiting' in fashiona
ble circles is on tIe declne; still there
are oteaa1oned receptions. In a recent
one at the house of Senator Blaine,
Senator G3orden, the most battle
scarred of all the erbOonfederates, led
Mrs. Blainme to the aper room. It is
only in public that ins is sAid to
eat his Confederate brigadlers. In
private life lhe Is cordial and hospita
The lates6' case of bulldozing that
bas come to tile surface occurred in this
city. IL anneara that:' ndiviual,ns
bearing the oughoniolls pitronymle
of "Soaper" had been 'aying attention
to a young lady for some time. Dur
ing an evening call recently, the father
and brother of the latter came into the
parlor, and informed Soaper that a
license had been obtainled andt a minis
ter sent for, and he must marry then
and there. This lie declined to do,
but tie others leveling revolvers oin him,
told himl) to choose between marria"re
or having his brains adorn the will's.
Under the demoralizing influences of
cold steel, charged wit L powder and
lead, and blood-curdling oaths, Soaper
began to waver; he pleaded that he
did not desire to marry the young lady,
and that he was a minor, being only
nineteen years of age, and besides
adducing other equally forcible rea
sons. But the others were resolved to
see Soaper spliced in spite of himself.
At last. he reluctantly gave his consent,
and, the minister having arrived, the
knot was tied according to law. The
Unappreciative Soaper, however,
as sion as an opportunity otlired to
get t'romun nder the influence of the
bulldozers, slid, and measured real
estate like a anan crazy in the legs. A
few days later, he sought. it judicial
hand to untie the knot. The Judge,
taking pity on the Soaper who wanted
no helpmeet, granted i divorce. Since
this occurrence the membership of the
"Bachelors' Protective Union" his
increased at a tremendous rate, and the
fair sex are warned that if to all their
other irresistible influences they
add the additional one of paternal
bulldozing, a similar organization will
spring up in every village of the
country. Moreover, the case clearly
indicates that there should be an
amendment to the constitution, so that
hereafter no bachelor may be taken
and feloniously spliced in violation of
his rights as a free American citizen.
l[ence, Mr. Hayes, appreciating the
gravity of the situation, has called an
extra session. In addition to this out
rage comes the following particulars
of another, taken from the Cincinnati
Enquircr: A jolly drummer, seeing
a hand protruding from a car window,
and being bent upon fun, grasped it
warnlv with the remarks: "Good
bye, old boy, good-bye; can't be with
you always, you know; ;.ive my love
to the folks, and don't fail to call and
see us when you come to town." Here
the facetious drummer was knocked
clear across the bar by a stahwart blow
from the disengaged hand of the occu
liant of the berth. After picking him
self up and pulling his nose around to
its proper place, he offered to bet a
week's salary that. the fellow in the
berth was a prize fighter. This excit
ed some curiosity, and the berth was
closely whtched. Susan B. Anthony
turned out of it in the morning.
