Sertnait, Speeches, Sx. It being known that
Senator Douglas W' armed in the city, a pro
cession was formed shortly, afterlight o'clock,
on Saturday night, tn front of the! rooms of the
Douglas and Johnson Association, 6nC street,,
which, to the number of three1 orJfoVr hundred,
which Increased as they proceeded, and headed
by the Marine Band, proceeded by way of
Seventh and thence through I street, to the,
residence of Senator Douglas, where a large
number of personal friends of the Judge had
already assembled, including many members
of the House Representatives,' both from the
Northland from the South. t
Arrived In front of the residence, the Marine
Band played a favorite sir, when loud, calls
were made for Douglas. In, a few, moments,
that gentleman made his appearance, when he
was greeted with enthusiastic applause.
Mr. John F. Ennis, President of the Douglas
and Johnson Association, then addressed Sena
tor Douglas, welcoming him back to the city,
and complimenting him for hit bearing during
the campa'gn just closed Referring to the
past career of the Senator, he observed that the
Union and the Constitution had always found
in him a'warm and a eadfast friend.
RESPONSE OF MB. dooolAs
In reply to the remarks of Mr.' Ennis, Mr,
Douglas returned his sinceret thanks for' the
compliment which had been paid him. lie ob
served that to be thus welcomed on his arrival
in the city by so large a number of Uie, citizens,
when the, weather was so very uninviting, was
indeed a high compliment. From the com
mencement of the recent campaign, he bad
been actively engaged in the vidication of those
great constitutional principles upon which he
elieved the perpetuity of the Union depended,
and ibaa done this alike In tne norm, in tne
South, inn the East, and in the West. He be
lieved the integrity and perpetuity of the Re
public depended upon maintaining on the sla
very question the great principle of non-intervention.
The Government was formed upon this
principle, for the vexed question of slavery then
existed in the country as well as now and if the
principles then established had been faithfully
observed, the country would not now be in its
S resent distracted condition. The Federal
lovernment must never interfere with the
Question of slavery, except to perform its con
stitutions! of obligation of returning fugitive
slaves when then escape from their masters.
But he trusted and believed that there was yet
patriotism enough in the country 16 save this
glorious Republic from the terrible' fate which
now seemed to be impendingorer it, Ap
plause. He had lately read tho patriotic and eloquent
i;
epeecu or me gauani Qiepnens, 01 ueurgm.
rh k .1 !-! TL I ;..i Lf7 I-
ure&b cueenug. luab spwui uiiucu uuu iu
'eel that there was vet enough palribtism left to
save the Union. He heartily endorsed the
propositions proposed by Mr. S. as the terms
of adjustment. The Georgia platform, accepted
by sir. a., provided that no new (State should
be excluded because she has slavery in her
Constitution ; that the Wilmot Proviso should
not be applied to any of the Territories; that
Congress shpuld not interfere with the slave
trade between the States ; that Congress should
pass no law in the District of Columbia which
should endanger the harmony and safety of the
slaveholding States ; and lastly, that Congress
should pass no law affecting the efficiency of
the lugiuve slave law. those bve propositions,
which were just and proper, were all that was
asked by Georgia and the other Southern
States. As regarded the sixth! proposition of
Mr. S-, which was to demand' the repeal of
those laws which had been passed ,by,.various
Northern, States, he would say, the demand
was a just and proper one. Such laws Bbould,
never have been placed upon the statute book
of any State. He, for one, believed that Con
cress had the riirht to remove alt such obstruc
tions to Iho.faithful execution of the laws. Of
bis own bearing during the canvass he could
recall no expression or act that bis conscience
did not fully approve. As the contest was now
closed, he hoped that the past, with any bitter
feeling which might have been created by it,
would be forgotten, and they would all unite as
a band ot Constitutional union loving men to
save this glarious Union. Applause.
No one regretted the result mora than he
did, not from personal considerations, but the
peace and safety of the country had been en
dangered by it. He did not regard the election
of any man to the Presidency, however obnox
ious he and the principles he advocated might
be to many, a sufficient cause for a dissolution
of the Union, if elected in accordance with the
requirements of the Constitmion. Applause.
As Mr. Lincoln had been thus elected, he must
be inaugurated. Applause. So long as he
faithfully observed the laws, and enforced their
execution, and looked to the Interest of the one
section as well as the other, be should be sup
ported) but should he violate or attempt to
violate a single provision of that sacred instru
ment, the Constitution, be should be held ac
countable in the manner prescribed in the Con
stitution. Applause
He then alluded to the fact of both Houses
of Congress having a majority opposed to Mr.
Lincoln's Administration, which, even were
Mr. Lincoln disposed to trespass upon tho
rights of any section, or otherwise abuse his
power, would be sufficient to prevent bis
doing so.
After again returning bis thanks for the
kind manner in which be had been received,
ho begged to assure them that he was pre-
Eared on Monday to resume his seat in the
euato, without any dissatisfaction, without
any passion to interfere with the impartial
discharge of his duties to the country. Ap
plause. He closed with an earnest appeal in behalf
of the Union, urging his friends to lay aside
all party passion, and use their utmost en
deavors for the defence of the Union and its
preservation for all future time.
After Mr. Douglas had retired, loud calls
were made for Hon. John Young Brown, of
Kentucky. That gentleman then came forward,
and delivered a strong Union speech, and
urged upon all present the necessity of making
a strong effort for its preservation.
Calls were then made for Hon. John A. Lo
gan, of Illinois ; but Mr. Ennis appeared, and
asked that Mr. Logan be excused from speak
ing at this time, as he was suuering Iroin a
severo cold.
The lino of march was then taken up for
Brown's Hotel, where tho Hon. John A. Mc
demand, of Illinois, was stopping. After re
peated calls for Mr. McClernand, that gentle
man made his appearance, and delivered a
forcible and telling speech, calling upon all
present to stand fast by the Union.
The assemblage then adjourned.
AnuNDiiscEorGAMi Good Dit's Si-obt.
Small game, this season, in this vicinity, is more
than usually abundant and fine. Experienced
sportsmen inform us that it has been the best
season for hunting about, these parts for years,
especially for rabbits and partridges. Mr. Moses
P. Swain, of Capitol Hill, in company with a
friend, one day last week, in a circuit of fivo
miles, succeeded in bagging thirty partridges,
two pheasauts, find nineteen rabbits. Pretty
good for one day's sport.

The work, of cutting tfcrough and grading
Third street east, between C street and Massa
chusetts avenue, is progressing rapidly, under
the direction of the energetic contractor, Mr.
J. II. Brown. This street, when completed,
will be a great improvemfent to the neighbor
hood, and one much needed.
Disciuroed. It will he remembered, that
uaptain Hainan Darling, ex-.uoprlreeperor the
House of Representative!, together with Mrs.
Beyeridge, were arrested, charged with having
resisted Officers Wise and Gittings in the ar-
rest of Stafford, a negro, under the fugitive slave
law. Mrs. B. having been tried soon after, and
dismissed, Captain Darling's case wasdeferred,
on account ot his absence from the city, until
Saturday last, when it ckme up before Justice
Giberson. After hearing the testimony of Offi
cers Wise arid Gittings, ss well as that of Judge
Granger aud Lieut. Thomas, who were all
present at the time of the alleged resistance,
Captain Darling was discharged, the whole test
imony showing that there was no ground what
ever for the charge.
National Medical College. We have re
ceived the annual circular of this College, and
are happy to say that it is in n healthy condi
tion, and offers rare facilities for those who
wish to avail themselves of a thorough practi
cal knowledge of medltal science.
False Alaru or Bihe. The alarm of fire
on Sunday morning early was caused by the
burning of brush somewhere in the eastern
suburbs ot the city, and created by some stag
gering individuals on their way to their homes.
Foul ("iri) Proceeding. A gentleman
living on East Massachusetts avenue, near Fifth
street, bad his entire Bock of poultry surrepti
tiously conveyed to parts unknown, a few even
ings since. We hear of a number of cases in
which the residents of Capitol Hill and Navy
Yard have been victimized by these foiclers.
In a Critical Condition. Young Burcb,
who was so severely injured on Thanksgiving'
day by the accidental discbarge of a gun, still
lies in a critical condition. He spent another
very restless time last night, but is somewhat
easier this morning. His physicians have some
hope of him .to-day, though very slight
Row on 'Tim Atoti. About 7 o'clock on
Saturday - evening," snlte-an excitement was
kicked up on the avenue: bear Third street, by
two gents, somewhat under the influence of the
"ardent," engaging1 in the pleasant pastime'
of fisticuffing 'each Other. Nothing more
serious than one of the combatants receiving a
black eye and a "birked " nose was the result
of the fracas. '
Another. On. Saturday night, a zealous
partisan of the now defunct Little Giant, con
siderably (elevated,i entered the Lager Beer
Saloon of 'Mr. Entricb, on Eleventh Btroet,
cheering lustily for Stephen A. Douglas. He
was met by an 'equally ardent admirer of
" Kentucky's gallant son, ' who politely request
ed him to cease cheering for the " Squatter,"
the same being very offensive to the ears of the
advocate of "Direct Intervention." Not com
plying with the request, he was knocked flat.
Runaway and Accident. A gentleman
named Wilson, residing in Charles county, Md.,
whilst on his retaru to his home yesterday
afternoon, met with quite a severe accident
when near Benning's bridge, Eastern branch,
by his horse taking fright and running away,
smashing the buggy to pieces. Mr. W. received
several severe, though not dangerous, contu
sions abjjut the heed and face. The horse was
also considerably injured and bruised.
CABBAdiNo. We hear of complaints coming
from market gardeners in the northwestern
suburbs of the city, of depredations committed
on their cabbages, potatoes, etc. A few even
ings since, one gettleman had some fifty heads
of fine cabbage cafried off.
TriE TrToaRArmcAL Society. At tho reg
ular meeting, held on Saturday night last, the
following gentlemen were elected officers for
the ensuiugyear: J. C. Franzoni, President;
W. R. McLean, Vice President ; H. S. Bowen,
Recording Secretary ; J. C. C. Whaley, Finan
cial Secretary -r it Caton, Treasurer,
A committee was appointed to make ar
rangements for an anniversary supper or ball.
Watch Repout. Joseph P. Riley took it
into his head to indulge in a little quiet pro
fanity, for which be was desired to "pony up "
$1.99, as' fine and costs. Dennis O'Conner,
for amusing himself in the same manner, was
charged (.1.06, which he superseded. Thomas
Fletcher, a colored individual, being about to
lay in his beef for the winter, thought he would
take an economical way of doing it, and ac
cordingly took about eighty pounds of that ar
ticle, and forgot to pay for it ; be was committed
for a further hearing. Edward Gray, another
dark-colored individual, was brought up for
stealing a wood-saw, and committed to jail for
court. John Gray, (also colored,) for indulg
ing in drunkenness and profanity, was requested
"fork over" $(.14 fine and costs; the "need
ful " not being forthcoming, John was sent to
the workhouse for ninety days. Edward Sw
ing, for being drunk and profane, was desired
to ''shell out "$3.16; Edward, being able to
raise "nary red," was sent down for sixty days.
Samuel Babbitt was brought up charged with
an assault and battery; ho gave bail for a fur
ther hearing.
A Mean, Contemptible Act. A negro
slave, belonging, we learn, to a Mr. Hill, of
Prince Georges County, whilst on his return
home from this city, whither he had come early
on Sunday morning with a basket of poultry
and eggs to dispose of in the city, was met on
the road leading to the Eastern branch by some
heartless scoundrel, who demanded the money
be had received for his produce. Upon refu
sing to deliver up his hard earned gains, the
villains knocked the poor old man down, and
robbed him of every cent of tho money a lit

tle over $2. We have rarely heard of a1 more
contemptible, dastardly act than the one above
mentioned, and wo are only too sorry that we
are nnable to obtain the names of the heartless
wretches who could so far forget their manhood
as to maltreat and rob a poor 'old negro tlave,
who had travelled miles' to sell his little slock,
of wares.
Ladies' Festivals. The season for fun is
rapidly approaching. To night, the ladies of
Christ church commence a fair at Thorn's Hall,
Seventh street: and just two doors above, at
Odd Fellows Hall, a fair for the benefit of the
Su Joseph's Orphan Asylum commences to
night. We intend to be on hand, and have, our
share of the fun at both these places.
Then, the ladies of the Methodist Protestant
Church, on Ninth street, are going to have a
fair at Thorn's Hall, week after next.
And the Gorsuch Chapel folks are going to
make Potomac Hall merry during Christmas
week, by one of those old time festivals which
wake up the old folk as well as the young.
And the Methodist Protestant Church, on
the Navy Yard, are going to bare a fair during
all of Christmas week, for which purpose Odd
Fellows Hall in the sixth ward will be brought
into requisition.
And and well, it wont do to give all the
good things at once; so look out for future
numbers of the Republican, if you want to keep
posted on these matters in which the ladies
play such a prominent as well as agreeable
part.
Odd-Fellows' Funeral. Columbia Lodge

turned out this afternoon' to escort the remains
of the late John Cruit to the depot, whence they
will be taken to Baltimore and interred.
