The Senate was not in session to day.
House of RepreBeiitatives.
Mr. RICHARDSON, by unanimour consent,
made a personal explanation. He desired to an
nounce to the House and to the country that,
after to-day, his name would l>e unconditionally
withdrawn from the list of candidates for the
Speakership. He announced the fact in order
that those with whom be acted might be governed
accordingly. He. as well as the country, bad seen
that in no contingency, and under no circum
stances, could he be placed in the Speaker's chair.
Sincerely desirous of seeing the House organized,
and an intrmation bavii g been expressed here
and elsewhere that there might be an election
were his name withdrawn, in connection with
those of others before the body for an election, he
would relieve the House from its embarrassment,
were it in his power, to-day, but he would do so
to-morrow. Gentlemen with whom he acted
would l>ear him testimony that the position he
occupied was not of his own seeking, but was one
from which, again and again, hi desired to retire.
They had seen fit to continue him in the position
in which they placed him in the beginning. It
was on their part ajvaio hope. He repeated that
to-morrow morning he shall retire frotn the con
test, to enable the House, so far as he could, to
Mr. DOW DELL offered the following preamble
and resolutions:
Whereas the people of the United Ststes from
the earliest history to the present lime, have been
led by the hand of a kind Providence and are in
debted for the countless bless ng? of the past and
present, and dependent for continued prosperity
io the future upon Almighty God:
And whereas the great vital and conservative
element in our system is the l?elief of our people
in the pure doctrines and Divine truths of the
gospel of Jesus Christ, it eminently Iwomes the
representatives of a people so highly favored to
acknowledge, in 'he most public manner, their
reverence for God, therefore

Mr. RUST offered a preamble, to the effect,
that whereas after one hundred and iwenty-two
fruitless efiorta for the election of a Speaker, the
rotes divided between Messrs. Ham*. Richard
son and Ft7LL.tR, it haa been made manifest that
neither of them is the choice of the msjority of
this House lor its presiding officer, and that a
longer persistence on the part of their respective
friends would only delsy an organization of the
House, and prevent legislation, when the common
interests of the country require it, therefore
Jlttolvrl. As the sense of this House, that
Messrs. Banks, Richsrdson, and Fuller, by with
drawing their nsmes, and not permuting their
use af er this day. will remove cenain and insur
mountable obstacles to organisation and the pub
lic interests will be greatly promoted by their do
ing so.

resolution lie on the table; but the motion waa
disagreed to?yeas 90, nays 96?a tie.
The House refused to put the main question

aud closely guarded?several dashing young men,
peeping through the windows and seeing the
assembled politicians in the full glare of gaslight,
hastily inquired of a bystander, "Have they
adjourned yet?" "No air," was the response.
The visitors, imagining for the moment that the
House was iu regular session, and without wait
ing for explanation, dashed up the stairs, at the
suggestion of one of their number, for the purj?ose
of obtaining places in the galleries to witness the

T properties of Balsam Copaiba have long
been recognized by the (acuity, but the great dis
advantage arising from its nauseous taste has
liitherte prevented its administration in many
diseases lor which it is particularly adapted. The
usual ' modus opeiandi" of prescribing it, either
in the form of an Emulsion or Gelatinous Cap
sules, has not been (bund satisfactory, being liable
to some objection, either from the difficulty expe
rienced by some individuals in thu deglutition of
the Cujisule or the small quantity of Copaibu gen
erally found in the Emulsion.
Joyce's tasteless solution of Copaiba is the
most unique preparation yet introduced to the
medical profession, as it contains 50 per cent, ol
the purest Para Copaiba, without taste or smell,
and at same time mixes clearly and freely with
water, and is pronounced by the most einiuent
physicians and analytical chemists in the old and

vatlve Magazine.? When new aspirants
lor popular favor are announced, the public have
a right to demand the grounds upon which such
show of title to their patronage is made. In ac
knowledgment of this, we trace the customs of
parlies in the avowal of principle*; of religious
sects, in the promulgation of creeds; and of per
sons in all pursuits of life, dependent upon the
public for success, in their preparatory expositions
of plans and purposes. The customs thus origin
ating, though sometimes abused, are useful and
proper, and should not be discarded. And when,
in obedience to custom, new plans are proposed,
those approving ought not to withhold their en
couragement, as too many do, until they see that
success is sure, for their aid may be needed to
secure it. Such a foolish policy as this jeopar
dizes the plan they approve, and hastens its failure:
it has defeated many important enterprises, and
has deprived the country of good and useful works.
If a new proposition of any kind is approved by
the public, the support of those approving is 01
right expected, their approval being solicited only
in the view that their more substantial aid will
not be withheld.
The Southern Conservative Magazine will
occupy grounds but little cultivated by American
magazinists. It is believed that a field is open for
a periodical of a new and, in some respects, a
higher order than has been aimed at in our maga
zine literature. In this belief, and with such an
aim, we aunounce the Southern Conservative
The new magazine will be national and not
sectional; claiming no merit by virtue of its es
tablishment in the South, but aiming at a higher
usefulness and a more general acceptability.
It will be Protestant, but not sectarian ; opposing
religious bigotry or intollerance on the one side,
and infidelity on the other?laboring in its teach
ings to advance a closer union betweeu the several
branches of the great family of the church.
It will be political, but liberal; owing no slavish
allegiance to parlies or politicians, il will advocate
measures, uot men, aniT will labor ouly lor the
success of principles.
U will be progressive, yet sternly opposed.to
the reckless spirit of innovation so rife in the
country?aiming to elevate and advance, not de
press; to reform and improve, not to destroy;
sacredly adhering to the true intent of our greal
republican theory, and laboring to advance it to
its fullest development.
It will be truly American in tone and sentiment,
but will repudiate nothing foreign, merely because
so; believing that the good, the useful, and true
belong not, par excellence, to any favored people,
but are the common right of all.
Il will be the orgau of pura.conservatism.
It will eucourage a high-toned literature, and
defend pure morals in all the social relations ol
And il will number in its corps of regular con
tributors some of the ablest political and literary
writers of the country.
Tiie magazine will be printed on the finest
quality of paper, with new type, and in a plain
but superior style.
Each number will contain not less than 50 large
octavo pages, made up of original articles, con
tributed and editorial ? reviews, political and
scientific essays, romances, poetry, 6ic.
We promise much for the new magazine, and
we intend to perform it all, and more, if the read
ing public will give the enterprise a liberal en
The Southern Conservative Magazine will be
issued, the first of each month, from the office of
publication, Nashville or Knoxville, Tennessee,
and will be furnished to suscribers at four dollars
a year, or three dollars if paid punctually in ad
vance. Publication will be commenced the 1st
