What Then ^aid in Secret Session — Dis Discussion of the Disputed States — Senator Jiayard on Judge Bond-—The Partisan Decisions of the Commis sion , Ac. Washington, Feb, 28_A few bits of the inside history of the electoral com mission will be interesting. While the Louisiana case was under consideration, Mr. Justice Miller read an opinion that it was perfectly competent lor the four 1 members of the Louisiana returning board to canvass the vote, notwithstand ing that the law said the vacancy must bo filled. Representative Abbott said, "Judge, let me read you an opinion from Woolworth's reports," and read from a decision of Justice Miller, on the Circuit bench, in which he laid down the doc trine that the acts of a certain county board of canvassers were void because they had neglected to fill a vacency. Jus tice Miller was completely dumbfounded, and did not undertake to make the least reply. Representative Payne in the same case made a speech, in which be ironically eulogized Senator Edmunds foi his non partisan course when the electoral bill was before the Senate, and expressed his deep regret that the able Senator from Vermont would not now rise above party and give his voice for justice. Mr. Ed munds reciprocated the compliment by clapping his hands in applause. Mr. Payne then turned his attention t* Jus tice Bradley, whom he addressed as the fifteenth man—the Warwick, the King maker. Ho told Justice Bradley that the decision depended upon his vote, and im plored him to act as a judge and not a partisan. He said the people of the country had always entertained the high est regard for the Supreme Court, and it depended upon Justice Bradley whether they would look upon it with contempt. Justice Miller then interposed and said they were all the fifteenth man, and the result did not depend upon the vote of Justice Bradley any more than it did upon the vote of any of the others. Iu the Florida case General Garfield was well displaying his partisanship and want of decency iu an exceedingly bit ter speech of the bloody shirt order, filled with allegations of all sorts of crimes against the Southern people. Justice Field tried to stop him two or three times, and said as evidence had been excluded it was hardly competent to enter on such a line of argument. Justice Clifford said Mr. Garfield bad the ftoor. and it Was his privilege to go on in his own way. Jus tice Field only made one set speeclt dur ing the entire sittings of the commission, which was on the Florida case, when ho took strong grounds against the ridiculous plea that the twa houses and the coin mission were to be no more Ilian passive witnesses of the frauds which ha* been committed. Justice Field, however, asked a great many qnestious. When dustice Miller was arguing that no power existed to go behind the certifieatea, he asked : "Sup pose the constitution said that none but white men were eligible as electors, and a negro was elected, must the certificate be giveutobim?" Justice Millerreplied that lie would have no right to look his face. Justice Field : "But suppose you did look at his face aud saw that be was black'.'" Justice Miller said: "I would be compelled to give tifleate if he was eleated—even it was a woman, 1 would have no power tore fuse, as the constitution and laws do not provide a remedy." M r. Bayard appeared to take the most interest in the proceedings of the com mission, giving his earnest attention to every point. Judge Thurman did not talk much, being too much indisposed. Ho made, however, speeches of length on both the Florida and Louisiana cases, which were very able. Justice Clifford took less pari iu the discussions of the commission than any other member, and did not occupy twenty minutes altogether. Before the discussion in the Oregon case had fairly begun Justice Clifford said: ' I want it distinctly understood that I do not indorse the Cronin M him the cer vote." Representative Abbott, iu an impassioned .argument on the Louisiana case in favor of the Tilden electors, «aid : *• M v God! I enunot act otherwise, on my '<'4 uïctë nee .TTWr we all bava."

Mr. Payne nald thoae are not reuona, they are argumenta. Justice Miller said : "I am sorry we can a t please you, gentlemen ; we wonld e to." Got. Morton made exactly the same. speech In the commission lut night as he made in the Senate this after noon, appealing directly to the partisan prejudices of the Supreme Court justioes.

We* a m*tter of doubt with him which wu the more Inexcusable, the unlawtull»ptio%of the President or the oosrae ofT bit IntarforeBce. He amid: "If any one esse In which injustice nad out rage Is more shocking then another, It Is Dut of e man assuming to be tke minis ter qt Justice and defiling her sanctuary." The action of Bond wa* the mokt mon strous federal Interference of all. If not here, he believed that hereafter this un just judge would suffer for his crimes. He would repeat in the language of St. PAnl. "God shall smite thee, tbou whited wall, for slttest thou to judge mo after the law and commandeat me to be smitten contrary to the law." When the vote was taken in the South Carolina ease, Mr. Abbott said he wu in doubt, but should vote against count ing the vote. The resolutions of Mr, Morton, which were passed by the com mission last night, were drawn np by and were in tke handwriting of Justice Bradley, and are couched in rather pe culiar language for a judge. It should be noted that during the entire sittings of the commission the eight republicans never cut a non-pa.tiaan vote, while the ssven democrats frequently did. ndin are is WHEN WASHINGTON IS K KACHED THB RULE OK KTlqUETTB GOVERNING TUB OUTGOING AND INCOMING PRESI DENT' Washington, March L—Governor Hayes arid party will arrive here at nine o'clock to-morrow morning.

TH* ADHBRKNTS OP CKAMBSULAIX RE SISTING HAMPTON'S OFFICERS. Charleston, March 1 .—Some excite ment was caused yesterday near tha scene of the Combahee riots of la9t fall,a few miles below Charleston, by the news that a mob of one hundred negroes had fired on a Sheriff's posse, sent to arrest a negro who had refused to submit to ar rest on a warrant issued by a trial jnstice appointed by Hampton, and that the posse had been forced to retreat. T«-day a posse of two hundred men. black and white, were sent to dispersa the rioters and arrest the ringleaders. The rioters were found in farce at Calf Pen an the Savaknah and Charleston Railroad, but when eharged by tbe posse fled without firing a shot. About twenty of them were captured with muskets in their bands, and were sent to jail. No one was hurt ou either side. Dem Pedro Dislikes Sl.ow.n Italy as Much as inN.York Victor Emanuel has gone to Naples to receive privately the Emporor of Brazil, who first visited I.aly in strict incognito. But the Sicilian officers could not compre hend this modesty on the part of an Em peror, and the Emporor and Empress saw by their carriage windows drawn up in in line carabinieri, cavalry, militia, the Mayor with his tri-colored scarf, and all the other civil authorities. This, they said, when Dom Pedro expressed his in dignation at the forgetfulness of his wish es, was the ordinary exercise of public service! "Ordinary service; very well!" said the Emperor, and with a frown on his face he ordered the curtains to be pul led down and drove off, leaving the au thorities to continue their evolutions alone. At the station of Girgenti the au thorities attempted a presentation, but seeing the icy silence with which it was received they left the imperial pilgrims in peace. A subsequent reception was not more fortunate, and an aspiring poet who had prepared an ode was also repulsed. The Emporor seems to be determined to be free from the cares of State, and pass es his time in visiting the ruins and mu seums. lie passed his first night in Na ples in the astronomical observatory.

A gentleman wall advance« years and the owner of m%nj slaves, ly at the point of death, called a faitt old negro to his bedside. Perhnpe In that hour, the inspiration of the master toueb ing the condition of the spiritual life was not much in advance of the inspiration or faith of the slave. Cwsar had been his attendant and ever ready helper through long years in the past, and who should say what mignt be the mutual re* ldtions in the future?

Hayes ttbat the troops should be with drawn immediately and that the Nicholis government should be free authority throughout the State.

A good ho' bed i*ay be made upon the surface of the ground, pilling up the manure from two feet aix Inches to three feet high, and at least six in ches wider all around than the frame. This extra width tend* to preserve the heat within the frame ; and if be a foot wider than the frame it would be better than six inches. The situation should be where the soil is dry; and the bed should front to the south, or as nearly south as the location will permit. The sashes should either be procured before the bed is made, or their exect size should be known when the frame is made; and the frame mav be mada to book closely together, so as to be removed and easily stored away when not in use. Fresh horse dnng is the best manure to produce heart. It should lie thrown into a heap and wet slightly about a week before it is placed on the bed and turned over once or twice before us ing it to increase the heat. When put On the'bed, tread it down firmly, and cover It about six inches deep with light, rich soil, and ascertain the de gree of heat whenwyou desire to sew your seeds, by plunging a thermome ter into the soil; aud if too warm,wait a day or two for the bed to cool- Seeds will stand a heat of 90 degrees very well. Sometime seeds are sown in pots and pans, which are plunged into the manure witbont any covering'of soil; but in such a case, it should be covered three or four inches deep with sand or ashes to retain the heat. Wooden boxes six inches deep, made of very thin boards, about two feet long, and one foot wide, would be better than pans and pots for some kinds ef plants. The bottom might be zinc, or galvanized sheet iron, perfora ted with small holes to allow water to pass through them, if the wattering should be too copious. Buch boxes canid be packed in without any waste •f room ; and they could be easily re moved to fork up the bed anew to in crease the heat, or to allow a new bed to be made, when the heat of the old one is too much exhausted.
