Davis, of Maryland, from the Committee on
Foreign Affairs reported the following reso
lution :
Jiftolred, That Congress has a Constitutional
right to an authoritative voice In declaring and
prescribing »he .foreign policy of the United
states, as well in the recopnltion of new powers as
in other matters; and it I* the Constitutional duty
of the President to respect that policy not less in
diplomatic negotiations than in the use of tbe na
tional force when ordered bylaw; and the pro
priety of any • declaration of foreign policy by
Congress Is sufficiently proved by the rote which
E renounces it; and each proposition while pend
ig and undetermined Is not a fit topic of diplo
matic explanation with any foreign power.
On motion of Mr. Farnsworth, of HI., the
resolution was laid on the table by yeas,C9;
nays, C 3; whereupon Mr. Davis asked to be
excused from further service on the Commit'
tee. On the 19lh inst., the subject was re
sumed, and the resolution was divided into
two parts, one of which was adopted by a
vote of 118 to 8, and the other by 11 majority.
On motion of Mr. Stevens, of Pa., the words,
44 Executive Departments” were substituted
for the word * 4 President.” The following is
the speech made by Mr. Davis on the day
when the subject was first under discussion:
The House, on mv motion, on the unanimous
recommendation of the Committee on Foreign
Affairs, at the last session, passed a resolution de
claring the policy of this Government touching
the Republics of America, ft was adopted unani
mously. It went to the Senate, and there it lies.
It had not been passed three days before the offi
cer charged with tbe foreign correspondence of
this Government directed our representatives
abroad virtually to apologize to the French Gov
ernment for the resolution adopted by tbo Repre
sentatives of the people, and in that correspond
ence presumed to impeach Congress of usurpation
in undertaking to prescribe to tbe President the
rules which should guide him in the foreign policy
of the United States.
That correspondence was made the subject of a
circular by the French Goremmcntto ail tbo Gov
ernments of the world, to let them understand
that the Congress of the United States had no
right to speak with authority in the foreign affairs
or the government, and that nothing was to re
garded except the will and declarations of the Ex
ecutive. In tbe debates that took place In the
French Assembly the world wae given to under
stand. by the member representing the emperor,
that the passage ofthe resolution touching Mexi
can affairs ana French intrusion into ilexfco was
a momentary outburst of passion on the part of
the representatives of the American people like
that which occurred when Messrs. Mason and Sli
de! were arrested on board the Trent, but which
did not prevent the Federal Government from
giving up the two prisoners. Tbe world was giv
en to understand, on tbe authority of the Secreta
ry of State, by the imperial government, that Con
gross is such a thing as the French Assembly, the
□cile reflex of the executive will, its resolution
a rein and prenanpiuoxu usurpation. The letter
ofthe Secretary of State was In atone that was not
respectful to the dignity and the authority of the
House of Representatives. And if that letter lays
down the law ofthe land—and this House bv its
vote to-day says it does—then you have no right
to a Committee on Foreign Affairs, and I am no
child to play at doing that which yonhave no right
to do. The Secretary of State, before all Europe,
in a matter of the greatest'moment, slapped the
.House of Representatives in tbe face in ms corre-
Siondence with fta French Government, and the
ousc of Representatives says it will not even as
sert its dignity. Tbe House of Representatives is
the appropriate and adequate guard ofits own dig
nity. Sir, lam tbe only guardian of my own dig
nity ; and after this vote and that correspondence
1 most bnmbly but respectfully ask to be excused
from further service upon the Committee on For
eign Affairs.
Tbe resolution was not a cobweb of my brain,
brought here to hang fine dissertation* upon about
the abstract rights of different departments of the
Government. This House bad asserted its author
ity m mutters of the gravest national importance,
events which had arrested the attention of the civ
ilized wot Id, and made anxious the heart of every
friend of liberty In iL A free nation on oar bor
ders lay bleeding in the tslons of the French eagle,
and a vagrant adVenturcr who bad never seen the
soil of Mexico called himself her Emperor. The
American Bouse of Representatives had declared
that It did not accord with our policy to recognize
any monarchical Government erected on the ruins
of any republican Government in America, least
of all in Mexico, our neighbor and our friend. It
did not relate to remoter possible contingencies,
but to a bloody, awful realty, the min of a free na
tion bv European violence, under false pretests,
and with an insolent hostility to ourpower; arum
now more nearly consummated and by our fault,
aye, and still more by the fault of those charged
with the conduct of our diplomatic intercourse.
But that resolution bad rested in the Senate. Wo
had done all that we could, and we were obliged
to rest in silence.
But when the Secretary of State of the United
States sent abroad a dispatch to a foreign Govern
ment, relative to a matter then pending within the
legislative department ofthe United States, where
the Executive has no right to penetrate; respect
ing the vote on which, until communicated to him
in the regular form, he has no right to know any
thing; when at that stage the Secretary of State
saw fit to enter into diplomatic communication
with a foreign Government, in order to rob the
vote of Ibis House of its legitimate moral power
before it bad acquired any legislative authority,
and in doing that not only questioned the wisdom
and expediency, but the right of this House, and
of both Houses, to say one word noon that subject,
I could not sit in silence, andAhe House will find,
I think, that they will be unable to do eo, if they
.have a due regard to their dignity as one of the
branches of this Government.
And it was in deference to that practical, actual
case that the resolution was drawn; drawn care
fully. drawn critically, drawn with a studious
avoidance of every innuendo against the personal
character cither of the President uf the United
States of the distinguished gentleman who pre
sides so ably over the Department of State; and
the language of his letter, to which the language
of Uio rvooluUon refer*, mil show how carefully
it was adopted to this object, and how completely
It accomplished it The Secretory of State says:
“It is, however, another and a distinct question
whether the United States would think it neces
sary or proper to express themselves In the form'
adopted nr the Bouse of Representatives at this
If it Ih* another question whether the United
States would think proper to express themselves
at tills lime, and-in the form that the Homo of
Representatives have seen lit to use, who speaks
for the United States ?
The Secretary says:
“Thisisopractical and purely executive ques
There - the Executive speaks for the United
States I
“ and tlve deci-lon of it constitutionally belongs,
not to the House of Representatives, nor even to
Congress, but to the President of the United
Then the President is the United States! Do
gentlemen now understand how the word “ Presi
dent” came there ? It wa* because the Secretary
of State bad told the French Government, with a
view to break the force of the vote of the House
of Beprcsentnthes that it belonged, not to the
Honse of Representatives, nor to Congress, but
exclusively to Hu President of the United
to declare what the United States thought, and
when it was expedient to declare what It thought
in reference to our foreign affairs; and
foreign a Sure mean war, and peace, and
alliances, and recognitions, and neutrality,
and every interest and every right by
which wc touch the nations of the world, and that
in the face of the format words of rhe Constitu
tion, ascribing those functions In whole or in part,
to one or both Houses of Congress.
It was that declaration in conflict with all the
precedents of-the United States, that the Secre
tary of State saw fit not merely to express here in
the ordinary intercourse between the Departments
of the Government, bnt to send abroad to our
Minister in France, and lay before a foreign Gov
ernment and to impeach and discredit the judg
ment of Congress before it was pronounced,which
imperatively required to be rebuked. And it was
at that language that the resolution was pointed.
Now, judge ye, whether it be true or not, that
Congress has a constitutional right to an authori
tative voice in our foreign affairs. That raises the
issue directly, does ii hot, with the language, not
with the person even of the Secretary of State,
whether “ Congress has a constitutional right to
an authoritative voice In declaring and prescribing
the foreign policy of the United states, as well in
the recognition of new Powers, asm other mat
ters, ana it is the constitutional doty of the Presi
dent to respect that policy, not less in matters of
negotiation than in the use of the national forces
when authorized."
It was no blow aimed nt the President? Bnt a
right had been asserted for the President by the
Secretory of State. He first Impeached the right
of Commas to do what it has always done, and
usurped its right for one of the flowers of the
Presidential prerogative. 1 deny his law and his
fact. I make the question of right and not of per
ron, either with the Secretary of State ot with the
And then, “whether the United States would
think it necessary or proper to express themselves
in the form adopted hy the Honse of Representa
tives,’* the Secretary tells the world Js an executive
question! We cannot allow onr votes to bo re
ceived other than in the constitutional form of a
veto-by the President; then he has the right to
‘approve or refuse to spprovc them in the forms of
bis constitutional authority.
But 1 have yet to learn that il Is the right of the
President to say what is necessary and proper, or
what is wise or what is nowise with reference to
any vote of this House or of both Houses of Con
gress; except when onr votes are communicated
for his approval or disapproval;tbcrefore, to make
the issue direct with the other portion of (he Sec
retary's letter, this clause is introduced.
“And the propriety of any declaration of for
eign policy by Congress is sufficiently proved by
the vole which pronounces it-"
That lithe assertion, that our vote is not the
subject of executive criticism; that it is the right
of the people of the United Slates to say what
they will upon their foreign policy, and it Is the
duty of the President to veto or obey it. - But. dr,
if Congress have sunk so low that it must look
beyond the limits of Its own balls to vindicate tho
necessity and propriety of this solemn declaration
of national policy at mis time in the form we
adopted, perhaps wc can find no arbiter between
us and the Executive Government which it will
recognize so readily as the Baltimore Convention;
and that enlightened body, forced by public opin
ion, thooghtlt necessary and proper to echo the
resolution lor which the Secretary apologized—
only in attempting to give a rebuke to the form of
a compliment, they converted it into a sarcasm.
This is the substance of the resolution. Now,
sir, 1 say again that I do not mean to debate the
policy of the resolution or any matter connected
with it. Nobody except the gentleman from
Maine (Mr. Blaincj has impeached it here upon
historical grounds. With great respect to that
gentlemen, I say that the precedent which he
quotes is frivolously irrelevant, and that, from the
Itcghmlng of the Government until this day, there
is no vote of cither House of Congress, there is no
claim by any President of the United States, there
is no assertion by any Secretary of State, there is
no expression by any respectable man of any par
ty, that it does not belong to the Congress of the
United States to declare and prescribe tho foreign
policy of the United States; and from the time of
the Panama mission, when John Quincy Adams.-
asked and obtained the authority and sup
port of Congress for that great mission which we
must soon repeat, until this day, we have
vote on vote of Congress, under almost
every Administration, affirming, implying, assert
ing or exerting that prerogative without question
from any‘quarter; and under this Administration
more than one act approved by President Lincoln
himself adds to tbe unbroken law of precedents.
The recognition of Hart! and Liberia was not the
spontaneous act of the President, bat he, like his
predecessors, waited dll Congress had authorized
him to open with them international relations.
Sir, there la but one judgment and one coarse of
precedent, from the beginning to the end of Amer
ican history. Monroe concurred in it: the mes
sages of John Quincy Adams are replete with it;
Gen. Jackson, in the cose of Texas, recognized it;
Mr. Clay asserted it; Mr. Webster asserted It.
Wbat other authorities arc worthy of notice, after
we have named these 1 That, sir, is all I have to
say on that subject.
Now, sir, one other word. I have already said
that, in asking to be excused from farther service
on tbe Committee on Foreign affairs, I act from no
feeling of personal plane. I make that request
from my sense of public duty. In view of tbe rela
tions that tbe Chairman of tho Committee neces
sarily bears to the House of Representatives. It
is possible, sir, upon many occasions for tbe House
to differ, not only with the Chairman ofa Commit
tee, bnt with the Committee. Tney are bound to
‘ take the instructions nf the House; they arc hound
by the judgment or the House, and (hey must act
In conformity with it
But tho position of the chairman of a committee
mesne that he stands there as the repreientative
of the political Views of the majority of the Boose
of Representatives. He Is to the House of Repre
sentatives what a member or the Cabinet is to the
President. An absolute conformity on all essential
principles between the chairman of a committee
and the House on a subject respecting which the
con mittee is raised, is essential to a due discharge
ofhls duties, Jnstas a similar relation between a
Cabinet officer and the President is essential to the
doe condsct of executive affairs, lam not the
representative of the Boose upon this question.
The vote of this morning places a great gulf be
tween me and the House of Representatives. I
cheerfully admit that they may be right and I
' may he wrong f but the criterion of my conduct
must be mv own Judgment, and I cannot separate
myself from the history of America to cohfjrm to
the vote of the House of Representatives.
And, sir, Igo a step farther. Not only Is It !m
--pofiflble thfltl should continue to represent tbe
Hoase in that responsible situation without misre
presenting myself hot, insignificant as I may be
personally,. 1 am unwilling, when this matter
crosses the ocean, as it will cross It—l cannot con
seat to seem to submit to, or acquiesce in, or to
have part or lot with this grave surrender of the
power of the people. For, Mr. Speaker, whatever
the Insignificance of the person who moves this
question, his connection with this vote elevates
him to i U importance; and I tell you there Is more
thnn one crowned head in Europe that now looks
anxiously to the conduct of this House upon this
vgry question, and a shout will go up from one
tna of despotic Europe to the other when It is
known that the Bouse of Representatives has con T
fessed that its resolves are vain breath before tbs
dictation of the President, and that tbe President
is the United States, as Louis Napoleon is
Insignificant though I he, 1 am not humble enough
.to allow my name to be associated with that humil
iating abdication.

[From Our Own Correspondent]
Baltimore, Dec. 15,186 L
Times have changed in this section of the
country within a year or two past, in many
respects. From a slave State, to the enjoy
ment of every blessing consequent upon free
institutions, was a radical change from the
horrors of secession control, ond the Jeers and
-insolence of rebel sympathizers, to the tri
umphant rule of Union sentiment and the old
fi & ?» was another great change. Rut in no
particular instance is this moral resolution
more closely marked or more fully developed
than with the financiers and capitalists of the
city. It is only a very brief- period- since it
was deemed; actually disreputable for a bonk
or broker to deal in Government securities,
to loan upon them, or in in fact to recognise
!n any way this class of issues, and for many
months the Citizens’ Bank and the banking
house ofMcKein«fc Co., were the only money
ed institutions, with or through whom bonds
or other evidences of debt of'the United
States could be negotiated or purchased.
Npw, however, the case is far different, and
every bankand broker’s ofllcc has its signs
announcing tbe fact that 44 Government secu
rities are bought and sold.” And not only
this, but there is now a movement on loot,
which I am informed is likely to be success
ful, to nationalize tbe entire banking capital;
of the city, reaching somewhere about ten
millions ol dollars. Three banks are already
in operation under the National system, hav
ing an aggregate capital of $1,750,000, and
there is at this moment a real mania among
capitalists for National Bank stock, and the
former despised Government issues are now
the favorite securities. .Well, so let it be. Ail
Ibis however, goes to show, that prejudice
will fearfully warp the judgment of oven the
shrewdest of all shrewd people—the old mon
You are aware that a strict military sur
veillance is kept up in this State, and narllc
ularly In the city of Baltimore. Military
magnates administer military law in a very
summary manner upon civilians who are do*
tided in any of the little illegal whims to
which many of our traders arc addicted, and
every means arc resorted to that scoudrelly
ingenuity con invent to prevent the accused
fiom falling into the bauds of Provost-Mar
shal Coi. \vooley. The fear of this ofliccr, on
the-part of the Individuals who are engaged
in contraband tiadc, is so great that on more
than cue occasion, when it was known that
his eye was upon certain suspected parties,
they have given themselves up voluntarily to
the civil authority, rather than mn the risk
of detection by the military. Col. Wooley is
an Indianlan, possessing rare executive abili
ty, and withal, so keen and sharp, that tbe
instances arc few where his plans nave failed.
Be holds dully sessions of his 44 Court,” and
generally does a very lively-business. His
good nature and unvarying courtesy to all
with whom he comes in contact, has made
him deservedly popular, while the wholesome
severity which he deals out to Ihj' transgres
sor makes him the terror of thatfdass.
It is understood that there is a large seces
sion Influence In this city. Many of the old
families have fathers, sons, brothers, or hus
bands In the Confederate service, \£bile oth
ers are pecuniarily interested in the rebel suc
cess, having their entire property within the
rebel lines. That these people do all they
can to aid their friends Is undoubtedly true;
Vut there are few of them at this late day who
are willing:, simply for friendship’s sake, to
risk Fort McHenry. The day of open avowed
scccsslonism in Baltimore has passed, and
what there is of it now is confessed to a par
ticular circle, -who are esumto&ed to be true to
each other. The N. Y. World may say what
it pleases, but, after all, Baltimore is tally os
loyal as New. York City.
the rr.tox club.
This organization has been of great service
in bringing the Union men of the city 10- %
gether, nearly all those of any prominence
being members. They hare a line club-house
on Charles street, famished in excellent taste,
and provided with reading and lounging
rooms, billiard tables, chess and. card tables,
&c.. There is also a fine restaurant connected
with the rooms. Here the latestenews can
always be heard, and nearly all the prominent
military and civic strangers of Union procliv
ities be seen.. Here I met on Saturday even
ing last, Maj. Gen. McCook, who is now wait
ing orders from Gen. Sherman, to whom be
is ordered to report. In the course of con
versation he related the following reminis
cence of ' '
genet.xx- beattheoabd.
Yon will remember that Beauregard was
assigned to the Superintendency of West
Point in February, 1861, Three days after
bis arrival there he was relieved and ordered
to' report at Washington, the Government
having suspicions thus early os to his loyalty.
At that time Gen. McCook also held some
position at West Point, and on the morning
of Beauregard’s departure for the Capital, in
vited him and one of the Professors to take a
parting glass. As the glasses were raised tbe
Professor proposed a toast In which he allud
ed to tbe black clouds which were evea-then
threateningly gathering over the country, and
hoped they would ere long be scatteicd, &c>,
&c. Beauregard exclaimed with much vehe
mence, “ I drink that with all my heart, and
(raising his arms) this right arm Is ready to
deal the first blow to scatter them.” Less
than six weeks after he was firing on Sumter.
Gtn. McCook thinks he did not then intend
to enter the rebel service, but being piqued
at tbe suspicions of Government, he was sub
sequently induced to go over.

It is a very modest one—scarcely just to the
regiment, whose bravery we have every reason
to -believe was the salvation of the day at
Franklin. . Gen. Huger' stated to Mr. Jacobs
that he owed a letter to Gen. Smith, 10th

Rear Nashville, Dec. 14, ISGt )
1 have seen in your columns several notices of the
Sort this regiment bore in the late fight at Frank
n, Tens-, which from their incorrectness may
mislead some of Us friends. The object of this
articlels to correct any erroneous impressions that
they may have formed, and not to bring the regi
ment beiore the public In a manner calculated to
reflect on any other of the gallant regiments en
gaged In that fight, for every regiment that came
under ihe-wriier'snotice, although they may not
have been required to jperfohn so conspicuous a
prrt as the 73d, did their duty well as soldiers and
patriots. A synopsis of our movements from
Vicksburg may be of some interest to
our friends. October SOth the regiment
left Vicksburg In compliance with orders
"from ilaj. Gen.Howard, to report for special duty
'to the headquarters Department and Army of the
Tennessee. After considerable delay we reached
Nashville Nov. 12th, where a dispatch awaited ns
from Gen. Sherman, to Die effect that we could not
reach him before his army had moved from Allan-,
ta, and ordering us to report to Colombia, Tenn.,
and there to await Mid. Oen. Smith’s command.
We accordingly started for that place Nov. 13th,
♦reaching it m less than two days—a distance of 43
miles, upon our arrival there all was quiet,
though rumors of Forrest's near approach to the
city were rife. On the afternoon of the 23d bis
advance guard made its appearance near the city,
driving m our advance. That night reinforce
ments were constantly pouring in from Pulaski
and JohnsonvlQc. swelling onr Utile force to quite
a large army. They came Just in the “met of
time, for the rebels made a bold advance
on the morning of the 24th, bnt were easily;
repulsed. Oar troops at once fortified the town
and commenced skirmishing with the enemy,
which continued until the evacuation of the place
by our forces Nov. SSth. The 3d brigade, 2d di
vision, 23d A. C., to which the 72d had been as
signed, remained at the pontoon and railroad
bridges to cover the retirement of onr army. Af
ter the complete destruction of these bridges, at
noon of the SSth nit., the brigade was ordered to
fall back, which it did, crossing to the Franklin
pike, thence taking up its march towards Nash
ville. At Bp. m. when within six miles qfafipring
Hill, the brigade was ordered to “doableqalck 0
and to pass the wagon train, already bolted. On
reaching the header the train the brigade filed to
the right oftberoaa; Cos. B and Q were immedi
ately- deployed as skirmishers, the brigade
moving forward as their support, the
TCd forming; the right of the advance line.
Tbe skirmishing was constant until we arrived
within half a mile of Spring Hill, where wo were
ordered to halt, os it was feared from the move
ments of the enemy, that if wo pressed them too
hard, a general engagement would be brought on.
Onr loss in this skirmish was 4 severely wounded.
Our brigade and the second brigade of our dlvl
elon then march to Nashville;
marching all night with hat a slight Intermission
for rest we reached Franklin at 7 a. m.. Nor. 80th.
The brigade took its position oa the right offee
• road about a mile from town. The 60th Ohio was
on the left ot the brigade, the left of this regi
ment resting on fee-franklin pike, the 72d on the
right of the 60th Ohio in the first lino of works,
the 44th Missouri and 183 d Ohio as their support
In fee second line, occupying the same position
idative to the Franklin piho as the 72d and 50th.
tVilh hardly any intermission the men were busy
fortifying until the appearance of the enemy. ,
and bad not finished when fee first assault
was made. The disposition of fee balance .of tho
forces has been so often published that it la unne
cessary for me to give it. .A division of the 4th
Corps, in poslUon in our immediate front, with
silent or no breastworks, was compelled by the
overwhelming force in their front and flanks to
fall back In great confusion and disorder. The
rebels, having previously massed their forces on
ihe pike, plainly foreseeing feat this was fee Ball
/ect point, pressed closely the retiring division,
and even crossed our works wife our own men;
The 50fe Ohio, being flanked on tho lea by tho
rebels coming in on the road, was compelled to
fall bark to tho second line, where they stubbornly
resisted any further advance of the enemy. The
rebels saw at once the advantage they bad gained,
and took possession of the pita evacuated-by fee
60th Ohio. This exposed our left to a terrible enfi
lading fire, also tout-fire from parties of fee
enemy who bad got under cover offee second line
of works and our rear. As fee four companies on
our left, B, C, G and F were being surrounded,
they were ordered lb Call back to fee inner line.
While executing this movement, Lieut. Jamieson,
of Co B, was severely wounded and with 22 men of
fei? company taken prisoners. Lieut. Oertcll,of
Co F, was severely wounded bul reached the sec
ond line. Lieut. Beegle, of Co G, was either killed,
wounded or taken prisoner, as he has not been
heard of since. The vacancy feu? created was in
stantly fllled-up by the enemy, -they at the same
time crowding into*a ghp_betwcen fee 'Hid and fee :
regiment on its right we were thus exposed to:
an enfilading fire from both flanks, and unable to
hold fee works, the regiment was ordered tore
tire to the second line, about four rods in fee rear.
During this' movement Lieut. Col. Stockton
was severely wounded In fee neck by a
piece of shell, Mai.; James severely wound
ed in fee. head and Lieut Packer, of Co r
wounded, it Is feodght fatally, as he could not be
removed to the rear. Capt E. C. Prior,
was shot through fee right breast before fee regi
ment fell hack, while leaning over fee breast
works firing, his revolver at fee rebels crouching
on fee other side. He, also, conldnothe removed.-
After wc had reached fee inner Hue fee regiment
was reformed and Capt Sexton, D Co., fee senior
oflicerpresent, assumed command.- .Under cover
r of fee oarkness, Capt-Sexton led the regiment in
- & charge to regain our first line. Wc reached the
works and drove fee rebels out but contrary to
what was supposed, fee pits oa our left had not
been reoccupied by our forces, but were still held
by tho enemy. This, coupled wife fee increasing
fire from our men in the second line, who, in fee
darkness, could not distinguish friend or foe,
compelled ns to fall back again. In this
charge Lieut Stokes, G Co., was shot through fee
body; he was left in the town after.its evacuation
by oar troops, under fee -care osa Federal Sur
geon, detailed to take charge offee wounded who
conld not be removed. About 9 p. m. Capt Sex
ton led fee rfimiiant of the regiment in another
charge os unsuccessful as fee first. In this charge
tho eight corporals composing' fee color-guard
were killed or wounded. Coin. Harvey Wilson,
£ Company, was instantly killed white planting
the colors on the first line of works. Immediately
after Corp. Jacob Galley, A Company, was killed
in attempting to perform tbc same deed. In these
two charges we salTered.the majority of our losses.
‘ Capt. Carter, J Company, volunteered to lead an
other regiment In a charge to regain fee works
from which they had been driven, and U le feared ■
that he was killed or severely wounded, as he was
seen to fall and did not return wife fee regiment
when It was compelled to retire. .Our losses fully
attest the bravery of men and officers. The regi
ment went into fee figght 350 strong; it lost 9 out
of 10 officers, and 148 enlisted men—total, 152. 1
could mention particular instances of bravery, but

Death In a Copper mine—Heroism of
tne miners*
{Prom the Sacramento Union, Nov. 17.]
H. T. Holmes arrived In this city by last
evening’s train from Newcastle, bringing the
body of Edward A. Miles, whose life was lost
in the shaft of the Home copper mine, in El
Dorado county. We learn ft om Holmes the
following particulars of this extraordinary
and melancholy disaster. The shall of the
mine is about two hundred and sevcn'y-flve
feet deep. It rims a 'amoll portion of the dis
tance perpendicularly, but further down in
clines with the angle of the ledge. It Is sap
filed with ladders which run the entire depth,
t has been worked day and night. The last
sang of workmen left it at 4 o'clock on Sun
day morning.
At half-post eleven o’clock on Sunday fore
noon, MBes and one ol the workmen named
Davidson, went Into the shaft, going down,:
tbc ladder. Over the mouth of the shaft'
stood a iramc building, erected for the con
venience oi the workmen. Some time after
Miles and Davidson bad gone dpwn the shaft,
this building .was discovered by those who re
sided in the vicinity to be on fire. It was
supposed that one of them, in lighting can
. dies to take down.had thrown down a lighted
match, from which the fire originated. Great
alarm wos'at once experienced for the. safety
of the two men. No means were available
for extinguishing the fire, and nothing could
be done until the timbers were consumed.
Not until nearly midnight on Sunday night
conld an effort be made to enter the shaft.
At that time tbe foreman, Henry Alby, and
a workman named Stein, started down. Alby
bad & rope tied around bis waist, by which,
in case ot necessity, he could be drawn up.
He went ahead ana Stein followed. ’When
he had attained the depth of about fifty feet
he told Stein to go back—that he could not
breathe where he was, and gave the necessary
signal to be drawn up. Alby was found to be
greatly exhausted, but soon revived. In a
short time Stein resolved to make another
attempt to go down,* saying that Miles and
Davldscn were probably suffering for want of
assistance, and that he believed he could help
them. His friends urged him to' tie a. rope
around his waist, by means of which he could
be drawn up, if necessary, bfft he refused to
comply. Starting down without taking that
precaution, be was followed by a fellow-work
man named Smith.
"When sixty feet deep Stein told.Smith to
go back, and added tbat be most have some
assistance to get up. Smith hastened down
to him, but before getting within arm’s
length ofhim' Stein dropped from the ladder
ana fell down the shaft. The sound of his
body striking on the sides of the shaft could
be heard until it reached the bottom. After
the occuirence of this terrible accident, all
efforts to descend was suspended until Mon*
day morning. At that time a Corniahman,
named McGrnger, resolved to enter the shaft.
Having fastened a rope around his body, he *
descended by the ladders about two hundred
feet. At that point the men above discover
ed that his weight rested on the rope, and
the rope was drawn up as rapidly as possible.
McGrnger was found to be entirely nncon
scions and nearly dead. He bad almost suf
focated for wont of breath, and had been to
some extent injured In being drawn rapidly
up the shaft. No farther effort to descend
was made that day. On Tuesday morning,
Smith and Alby again determined to de
scend. At a depth of 165 feet from the sur
face, a tunnel had been started from the
shaft running some thirty feet in distance. In
this tunnel Alby found the dead bodies of-
Miles and Davidson. They had evidently at
tempted to escape on discovering the build
ing overhead to he on Are, and alter ascend
ing a portion of the distance, had sought
refuge in the tunnel. Both men were lying
on the floor of the tunnel, with their faces
As early as possible on Sunday evening:, a
large canvass Lose was Introduced Into the
shaft, extending to the bottom, and . by
means of several larffe bellows, fresh air was
forced down. The work was kept up steadily
day and night, by the volunteer labor of fifty
or sixty men who had assembled from the
vicinity. Smith and Alby were nearly ex
hausted when they came np.but they managed
to introduce the hose into the tunnel beyond
the location of the two bodies. After pump-,
ing down u large quantity of fresh air, one of
thim descended again, and the bodies were
brought up.- The remains of Stein have not
yet been recovered. The precise cause of
death In this Instance is, ot coarse, a matter
of scientific investigation. Thode who have
descended the shaft represent that th jre was
bnt Utile smoke discernible in the air, so that
that alone could not have produced the fatal
A Hebei Agent Sold*
The Davenport Gazette, of the 31st, gives the
following details of the sale of a rebel fcgent
in that city, effected by two Federal soldiers
irom Rock Island:
The visitors were clad in genuine butternut
uniform. They reachtd Mr, Prettyman’s
house between the boors of 10 and 11 o’clock
p. m., and alter making a peculiar noise at
the door, and rapping, were answered by Mr.
Frcttyman, in person, at the window. He
Inquired who was there. Was told, “a friend
from Rock Island.” Mr. P. soon appeared
at the open door, sans coat, sons vest, sans
nether garments—in a word, in his night ,
shirt. “Who are you,** lie luquwi. ‘*Eg.
coped prisoners from Rock Island.” A short
colloquy was followed by an Invitation into
the house. Mr. P. made a rousing fire, and
subjected his visitors to a rigorous examina
tion, and talked of the prison and its inmates
with great familiarity. He inquired after nu
merous rebel prisoners by name; said be had
sent several packages to prisoners, some by
the underground mad ; had lost one, sent by a
man named McCone, who had taken It from
P.’s house. An hour or more of this conver
sation tonvinced Mr. P. of the reliability of
his visitors, and ho retired to bed about mid
night; saying he was satisfied they were rebel
prisoners. _The ladies, sister ana daughter,
who had previously entered the roam, then
brought in cakes, pies. Ac., and conversed
freely. They offered their visitors a bed, but
this was declined, one of them declaring he
would never close an eye in Davenport—
wouldn’t be safe. Tnc ladies concurred in
the prudential reasons assigned, so all agreed
to sit up, and conversation was continued.
The ladies were solicitous about the treat
ment of rebels on the Island, and asked who
treated them best. Col. Johnson or Col. Car
raher. Then arrangements for effecting es
cape were discussed; route, &c. having been
talked ever, and Canada advised as the goal
to be sought, by Mr. P. Pants were pro
duced, but Miss A. did not deem them suita
ble to expose to Taukcc gaze. '."Others were
found and put. on, tbe ladies'retiring a few
moments. When their toilettes were nearly
completed, one of the ladies thought that a
name plight be left on the inner waistband of
the pants, and thus lead to defection; exami
nation satisfied her that all was right. Objec
tions were made to Confederate buttons on a'
coat worn by one of the visitors. These were
cut off. Other clothing was given—neck
ties, &c.; then a comb *, then crackers. &c.,
just before starting, the elder of the ladies
suggesting these would stay their stomachs'
until bteakfast could be bad. - The servant’
girl was out—had stayed away all night—and'
a departure before her return home was
deemed advisable. Destructions were given
os to journey to and course to be pursued at
Chicago. They were to be careful not to
make themselves known at Chicago, but were
directed bow and where to find friends and
assistance* After their arrival iujhe home of
the poor, God-forsaken, man-despised land of
refugees, they were to inform their newfound
friends and sympathizers of tht-ir welfare by
directing letters to. say Mr. John Brown, care
of K. MI Prettymah. Miss Anna gave each
S2O in cash before theyflcft, obtained, os the
visitors understood, from her own purse, and
not from Mr. P. Mr. P. gave .directions how
to purchase tickets at the depot for Chicago,
which be said wonid be $7.50 each. In
ing the way towards the back of the bouse,
Miss A. went first with one visitor; the other,
more lucky and much-to-be-envicdrcb., fol
lowed with Miss E. When In the hall, this
lady said to her protege: “Dear friend, take
care of yourself; don’t let tbe Tanks get hold
of you again.” And this friendly counsel was
accompanied by a hearty good-bye—and a
kiss / Oar Informant vows that this was the
best part of the whole joke I They went out
at the back door at about 6>£ o’clock a. m.,
Mr. Prettyman following a short distance to
be sure they did not lose the road to the de
lot. Theie they bought tickets for Rock
sland, and not for Chicago.

ministers to Central America*
During a recent debate in the House of
Representatives, on the Consular and Diplo
matic Appropriation bill, the following droll
colloquy took place:
J tr. fifrwns—Now, as to fixing one particu
lar place for a Minister to Central America,
where the interests of Slates are diverse, and
where war constantly exists between tbem, it
would seem to me very unwise and Impracti
cable. I do not know but that It was the gen
tleman from Ohio (Mr. Schehck), the Chair
man of the Committee on Military Affairs;
who was engaged in a two years’ hunt to find
the seat of government of the Argentinean
federation, and I believe be did not find it
then, though he came upon some fresh symp
toms of where It bad recently been.
Mr. Scfunck —The gentleman’s illustration
is not a good one. The Government of the Ar
gentine Confederation was found and recog
nized, and treaties were made with.lt. -
Mr. Steum> —"Well, there was somebody. *1
remember, though it could not have been the
gentleman from Ohio, who was, for three
years, engaged In hunting for some Central
American Government.
A Member—Mr. Smith.
Mr. StarM—Ah, yes—Mr. Smith. That is
the man I mean. It is said that he never re
tun, ed. but Is In search of the Government
yet. [Laughter.] Ido not know how It is.
I should be entirely satisfied if he never found
it, and never retained.
Shooting Slecpln^lTlan—A^Cnrlous
Pleasure 'Party.
The Albany Argus of a late date has the fol*
lowing odd story; •
“A shooting affair occurred in Troy on
Tnesday evening. A sleigh load of young
men went up there from this city, and went
into a saloon near the depot. One of them,
named Elwbod, feeling tired; went uB stairs
and laid down on a sofa. .A companion, by
the name of Sale, went to arouse him. El*
wood reihsed to get up.' Dale said he would
shoot him if he didn’t. True to his word, he
drew a Smith & Wesson revolver and fired.
The ballet struck Elwoodln the hip, and in*
dieted quite a painful wound. Thus urged,
the sleeper did get up, and went to Dr. Bur
ton’s office, where the bullet was extracted.
The party then came home. They all took it
good natnredly. The victim said: ‘I told
you that you’d hurt me if you fooled with
that pistol.* The other replied: * I told you,
you fool, you’d get hurt if you didn’t wake
im. 1 ”
pgr - 'lt Is rumoted here that JeSse K. Du
bois has advised Gov. Yates to pay no atten
tion to the caucus nomination, in case the
caucus be against him, but to muster as
many friends as possible and Jrnsl to the
democracy for help enough to insure success.
There is no doubt that democrats prefer
Gov. Tates to any of the persons above
named, and if “ wus cums to wuSj” as Arbe
nins Ward would say, they might make'a
choice of evils and unite with Yates’ bolting
friends, and elect him senator. —Springjiield

What Punch Says About it,
The London Panel has the following
PnntCß Baby’s Court Circular.— The
great satisfaction which was given to the
mothers of England by the faithful narrations
which were supplied during the recent tour
of Prince Baby’s royal parents, and t e de
light which was felt in reading, in a subse
quent court circular, that he had been out for
an airing, has induced his friend and god
father, 3fr. Punch, to make arrangements for
the regular preparation of a court circular
shr“ dc v
that Umll be devoted only to Prince Baby.
The following is the chronicle of the past
week; _
Sunday—H. R. H. very good indeed.
Slightly incensed after church, at being In
terrupted in sucking the velvet on mamma’s
prayer-book; but instantly pacified. Grabbed
at a urine glass and threw it down, bat only
laughed at the pieces, and wanted another.
Monday—H. R. H. did not cry daring the
whole day. Observing from the window his
royal parents going out for a ride, distinctly
remarked “ Ta-tar,” innocently unconscious
that they were out of hearing..
Tuesday—H. R. H.*s usual amiability was
distfirbtd by a special petition, on the part of
his head nurse, that he would put the coral
into his month instead of Shem, Ham and Ja
phet, whomhc endeavored to introduce there
all at once. He.was graciously pleased,-how
ever, to substitute the elphants for the fami
ly of Koah. _ . .
Wednesday—H. R. H. evinced a great de
sire to cat his toes. During a ride in the af
ternoon he distinctly pointed ont a horse, and
made a remark which the head nnrse Is in
clined to believe was “see,” but which the
second nurse considers to nave been “gee.”
Thursday—H. R. H. very sleepy; but the'
medical attendants did not think that the
symptoms were in the least alarming, though
his remonstrances on being moved certainly
were. He was pleased to Break a stvres cup
in the forenoon, and to laugh very much at
the crash.
Friday—H. R. H. much displeased at a bib
being inserted under his doable chin, and he
sprs out his nutriment with much vigor. Af
terwards a sudden clutch at his royal moth
er’s Dagmar brooch slightly hart bis hand,
but he was delightea when the nanghty
brooch was well whipped.
Saturday—H. R. H. in the -highest spirits,
and kicking vehemently. An attempt to
swallow bis red sock was happily frustrated,
and his royal father’s watch went to his
month instead. He enjoyed his evenihg bath
exceedingly, and utterly refused to-allow
himself to be removedfrom. the., water. At
length an Angola kitten effected a diversion,
and H. R. H. concluded the week by going to
sleep with the affectionate kitten’s tail in his
