Father Gulskl, the priest who brought the charge of blackmail, baa been Id charge of the Polish Church, which haa the largeat congregation In this city. The fact that Pufalekl, aided by tbe woman, had been committing tarlouscrimes came to the knowledge of tbe priest, and It waa determined that they bad better leave the town. It waa alao agreed, after some consultation with the clergy here, that cer tain funds be lurnlshed them for the pur posa of having Pufalskl return to France or Rome and the woman to go furthar West, all of which waa agreed to.

Four other members came In subse quently, making the total attendance 188. Messrs. Carlisle, Randall and Cox ab sented themselves from the caucus and oc copied the rooms of the Committee on Ap propriations, the Committee on Ways and Means and the Foreign Affairs Committee as their respective headquarters. As soon as the roll call had been com pleted Mr. Dorshelmer,of New York, offered a revolution providing that the votes in the caucus for nominating a candidate for the Speakership should resolution was agreed to on a division by 104 against 80, but the yeas and nays were thereupon demanded, and Mr. Nicholls, of Georgia, offeied an amendment in thé na ture of a substitute, providing that the votes should be by ballots. The roll was called oo this amendment and it was rejected by a vote of 75 ayes and 113 nays. Mr. Dorshelmer's resolution was then adopted without debate; nominations for the Speakership were declared to be in order and candidates were placed in nomination as follows: John G. Carlisle, by Colonel Morrison, of Illinois; Samuel J. Randall, by Governor Curtin, of Pennsylvania, and S. S. Cox, by General Slocum, of New York. The roll was called by Sûtes, and tbe progress of the voting, as each suc cessive member answered to his name, was watched with keen interest. Frequent messages reporting the lootings of private tally lists from time to time were dispatched to tbe respective candidates outside the hall, and it soon became evident that Mr. Carlisle had won the contest. At the conclusion of the roll call the vote stood as follows: State. Alabama. Arkansas.. California. Connecticut... Delaware. Florida. Georgia.. Illinois.. In 'iana. Iowa. Kentucky. Loui iana..

On beiug escorted to tbe Speaker's chair he bpoke as follows: UK. Carlisle's speech. Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen of the Conçue: Your committee has just formally notified for the office oi Speaker of the House of Representatives for the Forty-eighth Con gress, and I am here to thank you very briefly and very earnestly for the confidence you have reposed in me. If this had been a mere personal contest between me and either of the three distinguished gentlemen whose names have been mentioned in con nection with this nomination, I should have had but little hope of success. They are all gentlemen of great ability, long experience aud undoubted integrity, and I assure them and their lriends that this contest closes, so far as I am concerned, without the slightest change in the friendly personal relations which have heretofore existed between us. Gentlemen, I trust that you may never have reason to regret your action this even ing, and that when the labors of the Forty eighth Congress are closed you may be able to congratulate yourselves that no material interest of your party or your country has been injuriously affected by my administra tion of the office for which you have nomi nated me. In fact, I may go a step further, and venture to express the confident hope that every substantial interest will be ad vanced and promoted by tho united efforts of the presiding officer and the Democratic majority on the floor. Such a result will insure victory In tho great contests yet to come, and guarantee a long line of Demo cratic executives with an honest, economical and constitutional administration of our public affairs. But, sirs, you have yet much other labor to periorm, and, again thanking you for what you have already done, I shall say no more. Of unauimous nomination n a in ous set His His the suit his ing the his has be out is a He for set Is MB. IUNDALL'8 THANKS. Mr. Randall then addressed the caucus. He said: "A majority of the Democratic Representatives of the 48th Congress has seen fit to designate the distinguished gen tleman from Kentucky for the exalted posi tion of Speaker. His administration shall have my firm, fixed and honorable support. To my lriends, the minority, who may be disappoiuted at this result, I tender my gratitude for thoir support., which was actu ated by a noble, disinterested friendship, based upon the highest considerations ot duty, as they believed, both to their party and to their country. I bow to the decision of a majority oi my colleagues. The duty imposed upon mo by my constituents will be performed with earnest zeal for their in terest, for the triumph of my party and the real prosperity ol my country. If in the future there be any service I can render that will tend to these ends it will be performed with cheerfulness that no other citizen can excel. (Applause.^ Mr. Cox, of New Ï ork, then took the floor and 6ald: "I tender ray acknowledgements to the gentlemen who have given mo their confi .teile', anil especially to the elx teen gentle men from the State of New York, ana I have to fay that I am relieved from the resnousl, hillty which possibly might have fallcu on my frail ehouldors.

The future of our party de pends largely upon Its action on flacal ques tions. They connect themselves with the liberties of life, with trade, with commerce, with the magnanimities of public life, and with the grandeur ef the Republic. While thanking those who have sustained me dur ing this long selge, I confess to feeling somewhat wearied of being on my feet dur ing the last two weeks. "Eighty-four depends upon the wisdom with which we exercise the duties ol this Congress. Without a wise forecast and dis creet horoscope we will be In the future aa we have been In the past—derelict, beaten, doubly dlscomfltted. But I hope better things, and shall endeavor In my humble way to do something toward framing legislation on a higher and purer tone. Remember that '84 depends on our wisdom and our discretion.'' (Applause.) J. lor, of C. of and ful TH* MINOR OFFICERS. Candidates for tbe Clerkship were then placed in nomination and (the viva voce method being still pursued) were voted for as folio wa: First roll call—John B. Clarke, of Miss ouri, 91; J. D. C.

The next roll call was for doorkeeper. It resulted in the choice of J. G. Wlnteramlth, of Texas, by a vote of 95 against 63 for C. W. Field, of Georgia, and 30 for J. B. Colt, of Connecticut. Six nominations were made for Peat master. During the roll call it became ap parent that L.

Lindsay, pastor of the Pro testant Episcopal Church, Georgetown, D. C., was unanimously nominated for Chap lain. On motion of General Slocum of New York, seconded by General Rosecrans of California, it was unanimously resolved that the fourteen crippled and disabled soldiers now borne on the soldiers' roll under the Doorkeeper of the House of Representa tives shall be retained on said roll, subject, however, to dismissal for a just and suffi cient cause.

Mr. Cannon of Illinois, presided and was subsequently made chalim&n of tb« Republican caucus for tbe 48th Congress. General Browne of Indiana, placed General Keifer in nomination in a speech which re hearsed the achievement« of the 48th Congress and the part taken by his candi date in winning them. The speech was In the same line with General Keifer's letter to Mr. Phelps. Mr. Thomas of Illinois, made a short speech seconding Keller's nomina tion. A. y.

Keifer's letter, and deprecated the attack upon the Republican press, which, as every body knows, he said, is inspired by a sincere desire to promote the best interests of the Repdblican party, and which reflects the pre vailing opinions ani sentiments of an over whelming majority of Republicans. Mr. Parker's allusions to the New York Republican press were not well received by some of General Keifer's friends, one of whom sneeriugly interjected, "Muxxle it ! muzzle it 1" Mr. Skinner also supported Mr. Robin son's nomination. The caucus divided, and Gen. Keifer was nominated by a vote of 44 to 15. Amoug the Republican Representatives, who voted in tbe negative were Messrs. Hlscock,Parker, Skinner, Millard, Payne, Nutting, Johnson, New York, Phelps, New Jersey, Horr, Michigan, Waite, Connecticut, McComas, M. D. Atkinson anl Poland.

The next Speaker of the House of Repre sentatives is a tall man, with a slight stoop in the shoulders, Ha has a very large head, high above the ears, with a tremend ous indication of strength in his square, smooth-shaven jaws. His complexion is sallow—the dead paleness of student. His eyes are a keen blue, deeply set under bushy eyebrows. His nose Is a cross between a Grecian and Roman. His mouth is large and firm in its lines. His hair is dark-brown and is Just begin ning to he thin upon the crown. He wears the conventional loose-fitting broadcloth suit worn by the average public man. He apparently never gives a single thought of what he has on7 but his appearance Is always neat and the very reverse of care less. He is very simple and democratic in his manners, but is never familiar with any one. No one would ever dream of tak ing a liberty with Carlisle, while the humblest would bs at ease in his presence. He is a profound stu dent of all political questions and is nearly always at his desk. At his rooms, when not eugaged in his active duties in Congress, he has none of the arts of the politician, and be has won the Speakership solely upon his merits and the general recognition of bis bright qualities as a statesman. He is 48 years old and possesses a modest fortune, although not sufficient to support him with out the Income from his law practice, which is considerable. Mr. Clark of Missouri, the new Clerk, is a tall, sharp-faced man, with a full beard. He is an ex-member of Congress from Mis souri and an ex-Confederate brigadier. Mr. Leedom, of Ohio, who was nominated for 8ergeant-at-Arms, is an ex-member of Congress. He is a slim, slightly built man, with a small head whichls covered with a shock of red hair. He sports a red mus tache and goateo upon his high colored face, and then wears a dark green suit to set ofi his high colors. Wlntersmith, of Kentuckv, the coming Doorkeeper, Is an active young man who was a former Conlederate officer. Dalton, of IndiaLa, the new Postmaster, Is the old chief of the document room.

The Newark Ledger editorially says: "There aeems to be a growing practice amoug one or two Wilmington evening journals to reprint matter from The Ledger without crediting the same.

IatcrMttag Mrvioca la Rodney .Street Chapel Yesterday. Yesterday afternoon the new Rodney street Presbyterian cliapel, comer of Thir teenth and Rodsey streets, was dedicated with appropriate services. The church was crowded, and it was found impossible to seat all who attended. A large basket of Bowers ornamented the pulpit platform, upon which eat the Revs. J. Howard Nixon, D. D., William W. Tay lor, A. N. Keigwin and M. A. Brownson, with Dr. Bush, George W. Bush, chairman of the Building Committee; Edward T. Taylor, William Bush, Superintendent William F. Crosby of the Central Church school, Superintendent Lewis P. Bush, Jr., Gilbert Chapel school, and a number of other prominent men and women of the church. In the audience were seated Judge Wales, J. Taylor Gause, William M. Canby, Charles Baird, Edward T. Canay, William C. Spruance, Esq., Councilman Levi Garrett, W. C. R. Colquhoun and a number of other prominent residents of that section. The exercises opened with an invocation and the reading of the Scriptures by the Rev. Dr. Nixon, followed by '*How Beauti ful are Tby Dwellings'' by composed of Mrs. Dr. J.

Geary, led by Henry Baird,'with Pro fessor Ferd Fullmer at the organ. Another Scriptural lesson was then read by Dr. Nixon, followed by prayer&by the Rev. Mr. Keigwin. After the singing of a hymn by the congregation the sermon was delivered by Dr. Nixon. He took his text from Psalm 87 :2. At the conclusion of the sermon Mrs. Taylor and Messrs. Baird and Geary sang "Praise Ye." George W. Bush, chairman of the Build ing Committee read a brief history of the new building of which the following is a brief synopsis : In March, 1883, the present lot was pur chased for $3,500 aud a contract entered Into with Thomas B. Hizar & 8on for the brickwork and Newmann & Company for the Inside work for a total of $5,398.50. The furniture, which was principally obtained through the efforts of the ladies, had cost $675 aud a perpetual insurance on the build ing $100, making a total cost to date of $9,973.50. About $600 would yet be needed for grading, curbing, paving and iencing, which would make a total cost when en tirely finished of $10,573.50. He closed by formally turning the building over to the Board of 1 rut-tees of Central Presbyteriau Church. Dr. Nixon said no debts had thus far been contracted and a liberal collection was then taken up to supply the future needs of the chapel. Meanwhile Mrs. Taylor sang Mil lard's "Ave Marla." A letter was then read from Dr. Wiswell regretting his en forced absence and referring to the dedica tion of tbe old chapel dur!» g his pastorate 20 years ago. After the reading of another Scripture lesson the dedicatory prayer was made by the Rev. Mr. Brownson, and then the edifice was declared dedicated in due form by Dr. Nixon as pastor oi the church. A closing hymn was then sung with the doxology, and the benediction was pro nounced by the Rev. Mr. Taylor. Gone to Colorado. [Middletown Transcript J R. H.

THE JUDGE'S PARTISAN CHARGE Almost Giving Testimony Agalust the Prisoner—O 'Donnell 'a Farting Denuoeia tlou. toHDOK. Dec. 8.— The trial of Patrick O'Donnell for the murder of James Carey, the Informer, terminated yesterday In a verdict of guilty. Judee Denman, In charging the Jury, said the evidence was compact. The ques tion simply was: "Was the killing done in self-defense?'' The jury must decide the case regardless of what they may have read In the newspapers, which, he thought, were partially responsible for the shooting of Carey, on account of their morbid an t sensational paragraphs concerning Mm. Tbo Judge, m ic.vlo—lug Uns evidence, eutd that young Carey contradicted himself and that hie statements should be narrowly watched, but his charge was generally favorable to the prisoner. Upon the completion of the judge'seharge the jury, at 7 p.m., retired to deliberate on a verdict. At 7.40 o'clock they returned to the court room to ask If a man had a deadly weapon in bis hand and another thought that he was about to use it against him and shot the former would It be manslaughter or murder? The judge replied that It would be neither. But, he asked, where was the evidence of any act done by Carey which induced O'Donnell to think Carey meant to shoot him ? When the Jury bad retired Mr. Sullivan expressed a doubt as to whether the Judge had not given a wrong direction to the minds of the jury by his question. Judge Denman asked Mr. Sullivan if be could suggest where such evidence was. At 8.45 the Jury returned tbe 6econd time and asked the judge the meaning of "malice aforethought." The Judge carefully defined the law of murder bearing upon that point as applied to the present case, quoting au thorities in support of bl6 definition and ap plication. Tho jury again retired, aud re turned In four minutes with a verdict of wilful murder. When Judge Denman asked O'Donnell If he had anything to say why sentence of death should not be passed upon him, O'Donnell made no reply. The Judge then passed the sentence of death tn the usual The prisoner now wanted to speak. The Judge, however, ordered his removal. The police seized him, when O'Donnell held up bis right hand, his fingers extended, and shouted: "Three cheers for old Ireland ! Good by, United States 1 Te-with the British and the British Crown. It is a plot made up by the Crowu I" The prisoner, shouting, cursing aud struggling, was then forcibly removed by the police amid the most fearful confusion and slamming of dpors. This action ol O'Donnell caused th« greatest excitement and surprise, as he had previously gained the sympathies ol the spectators by his good behavior. Father Fleming revisited the prisoner to day and remained with him a long time. He says O'Donnell la In good spirite, and ft prepared for Uie worat, A brother of O'Don rumors to the contrary, the prisoner will probably remain at Newgate, where he will be banged, probably on December 17. Ample precautions have been taken to pre vent a rescue. Two wardens remain with O'Donnell night and day, and are answerable lor the safe keeping of his person. O'Don nell displayed extreme Indifference to-day, and even bore a jaunty air. He does not seem to despare of a respite. He saye his friends outside will move Heaven and earth to obtain hla release. n 11 form. TBK BURRELL OUTRAGE. A Belief that the Girl Cat off her Own Hair. A Newport (R. I.) dispatch to the New York Time» says: The Burrell outrage case continues to be the sensation of the day. No will be surprised if the girl confesses within 24 hours that she cut off her hair her self. accumulated to show that she is the only person who knowö anything about the outrage, and in view of this general belief much sympathy is expressed tor her father, who has been imposed upon by the girl's strange stories. A* janitor of the school buildiug where the girl attends has been discharged by the school committee for having written obscene letters to her. No evidence has come to light to show that the girl has ever resented the questionable attentions shown her by the janitor, and 1 Within a day or two evidence has one believes that he so far forgot htmsell as to cut off her braids. The Mayor of the city was confident that he had a plan which would be the means of unraveling the mystery. He made all the necessary arrangements to have her call at his office in the City Hall, where he proposed to cross-examine her. At the last moment, however, her shrewd father saw that such a course would not be advisable, and so he sent word to his Honor that he was unwill ing to have her appear unless she was pauied either by himself or his wife. The Mayor refused this proposition, and so he abandoned his plan to solve the mystery of the "rape of the locks." Anniversary, Thirty years ago on Friday last, Rev.
