During the evening, the weather began to moderate, and shortly after midnight began to storm. Ity «laylight the pave ment |was covered to the depth of an inch with hard sleet, and during all this morning the hail and rain continued, at intervals, to fall. The street« and pavements were of course very slippery, and pedestrianism wan rendered both difficult and danger ous. The coasting was the best the boys have had, this winter, the inch deep sleet being superior for this purpose than any depth of snow. All the hills of the city drew scores of urchins.with their «bids, and their shouts of laughter were heard on every square. From the Editor of the Elizabethtown, Pa., Chronicle. STOP THAT COUGH or it will terminate in that dreadful dis ease, couHiimption. We are aware that »prejudice exists among many persons against medicines which profess a cough or cold when bordering on consumption, or even when the lungs are effected ; but we can assure our readers that Wistar's Ralsam of Wild Cherry will do all this ; and in making this assertion we speak from experience, having suffered for months from a cough, which, after using many remedies without any relief, threat ened to ^terminate seriously. We were, however, so fortunate enough as to se cure several bottles of Wistar's Ralsam of Wild Cherry, and are now entirely rid of the cough, and restored to our former health. To those suffering in a like man ner we recommend this excellent pre paration. John (*.

Mr. Wood rose to offer a resolution, when Mr. Hoar; of Massachusetts, made the point of order that the question was not properly before the House, as the re port of a committee could not be made jy telegraph. The Speaker overruled the >oint, and Air. Wood presented the rcso ution. It refers the communication to the Judiciary Committee, with instruc tions to report at the earliest practicable moment what action the House should take in the pi omises to insure its rightful authority. Mr. Kasson renewed the point of order, but the Speaker adhered to his ruling, and Mr. Hoar said that, on rellect ion, it seemed to him that the position oi the Chair was entirely correct.

The Tilden prospects are really bright ening a good deal as it becomes more and more clear that there is going to be a pro test in the Senate against Morton and Chandler's conspiracy to declare Hayes elected. The <|ticstion now is. What Sen ator is to lead the revolt against the con spirators? There are significant indications that Mr. Blaine is thinking of trying to head the movement, have been talking for a day or two about the necessity that exists for men to rise above party and act like statesmen. Air. Blaine has the strongest possible reasons for endeavoring to propitiate the Demo crats . He has been at work ever since he returned to head off the investigation in the House aud to prevent Mulligan, Fisher and Frank Hayes from being call ed here as witnesses. Of course the Dem ocrats in the House will not push the in vestigation this winter if Blaine shows a disposition to act fairly in the electoral count. Enough has transpired here to warrant the statement that Air. Blaine will not antagonize the Democrats, and therefore that he will not sustain Morton and Chandler.
