CAPITAL NOTES. WHOPRKIt"T OF DELAY IN THIE METTLI RENT OF THE LOUIAMIANA NEN.. ATORMHIP. 'Yib Co.lmittee will Mend for Persons an Pipers, and In vetlirate the Legality of the Two Legislatures. [Bpecial to the Democrat.] WAStIINOTON, Oct 25.-The Republicans has l3Ally managed to pass a resolution authori: ing the Committee on Eleetions to send for pet ions and papers in the ;pofford case, and the are now boasting that they have got the cae whl'e they want it. They have two objects I wiew; first, to delay tbo settlement of the casr and seoondly, to hold over the Presilent a coe stontthreat of opening up an inquiry into hi .outhern policy, whlth can easily be aseom D.ihed under the color of investigating Kol lo'ls credentials. They 'an inquire whethe ~'alikard was the lawful (tovernor of Louisiant and if so, by what means he was overthrown Along lith ill the share the Federal Executiv a-y have had in th ttransant ion. In my judgmrnt the present deplorable eon 'ditlonof the matter is due is much to the halt ng sand indeolsive strategy of the l)emocrats a to the adroitness of the ItepublleIans. The report telegraphed to the Associate, Press last night that the Becretaryshi of the Legation to St. James ha been tendered me has no foundil tion, except that such a suggestion is repoite to have been made at the White House In th way of capping the climax of the Pennsylyani de1otation's recommendation of Hlimon Came ron to be Minister to that court. Simon bein, the most objectionablel to the Cabinet that coul have been recommended, the suggestlo above alluded to followed on the ground that was the most objoetionable person toSimon wh 41tld possibly l.e thought of for Secretary c Legation, and the whole thing was without m knowledge or consent.

On m ltlon of Mr. Wood it wasi ordered that when the House adjourns to-day it e to mooeet Mr. Banks thought the present it good lime, when there were no ilmportant interests ln volved, to review the nation of the Clerk in the ;..rganilzation of the House in the matter of r. Belford's certitlhate. He referred to the np ieal from his ds'tisn by Mr. Hale. on the >prouncds that it is aI dlty lirescribed by law, and tOouseof lopriseni ltives could not inter -_fre with him in thll' lis.lcarge of duties thus Srescribod, and said lthl le was no antlhorityini heOlerk to refusi aL ian 'liill of mnlembers that re the direct ,lb're-i'.nlatlives of the people. Mr, Banks agreed o t li it:t h+-re was no evildence b before the House that ths thov4rno, r if Colorado lentlertained ary dtulllt of the legality ,f his eerI tifiScate, and it wasi du1 to tlI' government and the State to gi\ve full faith o thie oflleieal a('l of every other StLate,. He wolldl not vote for the resolution if the 'ese ,culd not b(, reviewed by the committee. The eletOtinll was' h11d11 in O'to -ber a, and he declared the' glmneral staltu It did lot affect theenabling ait iler which tilhe M2itte organization of Colorado was etfettedl. Mr. Walker, of Virginli., thoughtl tlh, subljoot -as surrounded iby such a idi'igrio oif dloul)t ias <ito warrant its refren(,'e to the nllllttnlljt!e. }I iopeod the House would not be govw rnllt by It, punblcan recedent, but do wlhat was exactly '.it and riglht. SMr. Buckner contendedl that the House was .bound to take no1tie whether the said etel'tii in was held on any other day than that fixetd by law, and proceetded to argue that the aId of Octo - ber was the day so flxeId. He denied the right of Congress to d- legat the power of fixing a date for a State oonstit utinmal convention. Mr. Bragg. of Wis"onsin, said his vote had heretofore been in favor of seating members whose certificates have on their face prima e evidence of their right to a seat. and he do red to give his reason for voting against seat Mr. Belford. rave doubts had arisen as to whether the 3d October was the proper day. He was not pre tosay it was not the proper day, and until question was settled he could not decide as prima facie claim. To be eplightened on bjet he desired the judgment of the com e did not wish to be placed in the deciding the case and trying it after thought the uestion was a legal upon the point as to whether the the election was held the ht Its touldbe eonsi biy -I.be Pennsylvania, moved that the House adjourn and on this the yeas and nays were demanded by Mr. Leonard. The yeas and nays were ordered, and the vote resulted, yeas 112. nays 14. Mr. Hale proeeded to close the debate. He denied the right of any one to raise a question on prima facte cright in the case. and said the I majority of the House had power to send Mr. Belford before the committee, composed as it would be of three gentlemen who had, as they had right, freely expressed themselves on the question, and who, if they followed their rea Ssoning here to a loglcal conclusion, must refuse him a seat. He said it was denied that Belford had re ceived a majority of three votes in the election, which was notly contested, and in which both e prties put forth all thestrength they possessed. It was not claimed that the election was not the ,expression of the will of the people of Colorado, or that this certificate did not set forth facts. Under these circumstances he maintained that the prima facto right should not be set aside. Mr. Hale's demand for the previous question was seconded, and the yeas and nays were or dered on Mr. Harris's substitute to send it to the Uommittee on E.leotions, Mr. Bra g hbaing withdrawn heo amendment proposed by him. The vote resallted-yeas 137 nays 130; a party vote, with the excepttion of Mr. Butler, of New Jers-ey, Democrat, who voted no. The resolti ion as amouned was then adopted.

Mr. (itrileld asked unanimous consent and had read a petition of 210 colored men asking the assistance of Congress to enable them to go to Liberia, and said there was an extensive, movementt going on among the colored peoplo I looking toward emigration to that country. The petition was orderd printled and referred. Mr. Cox said he had a memorial of mechanics I and laboring citizens of the Utfited States, with - a petition and protest: 1. Against the unjist discrimination in fixing the hours of labor and the compensation of I clerks in the diTffrent departments of the gov ernment. and leaving those of mechanics and laborers to the whim of individuals. 2. Against the assumption of authority on the part of heads of di ,partments under which the clerks are worked seven hours a day and mechanics and laborers ten hours. 3. Against allowing one class leave of ab sence with pay, tand refusing the same to tnutier i ass. and petitioning that ail classes in the civil service of tlhe government be subject to uniform laws and customs, and that compen sation for services be equally liberal to all classes. and that anything in violation of this is 1 undemocral.l, unAmerican and in contraven tion of the programme of civil service refornm.

Bet.wedn, Hterman. Stanley Matthews the Hotlurllll iird. (a Civil Service Reform, the New Orleans C(ustom-Houseiand the Democratic party. poor Mr. Hayes is having a harder time than any man has ever had tsine the memora 3lie night when Mt. Peter tried to make himsell solid witIh the Roman soldiery and serv,- Christ at tihe same time. It would be now rather late in the day for me to quest ion THE (000D INTENTIONS OX MR. HAVES: for that. I have been voulchmg for them, ex plaining the frequent conilets of apocaranees, and otherwise holding the Administration up by the tail to the tolerant if not, admiring view of the readers of tie DEMO(IRAT so long that. I ,an't hedge now. So pronounceed and laborious has been my support of the Administration in this corresponden-e, that my friends long ago came to the unwarrantable conclusion that I was a 'candidate for some secretaryship of legation, and have been wont to ask me, sympathlizingly, "WHAT I WANTED ?" In vain have I protested that there was notlh ing in the gift of this Administ ration that could seduce me from the paths of Democracy and vir tue, and that my sole reason for supporting the Adm inistratlon was the fact that the Admin istra tion was doing, inadvertently perhaps, but still doing, great things for the Democratic party, which is my only love. So long as the course of the President was calculated to be beneficial to the Democratic party, and thereby to the coun try at large. I felt it my patriotic duty to give him all the aid and comfort within my fccble power. But I now Megin to gather from various sources the important information that the President has conel uded that he can do nolhing more for the DJ)mocratic party, has alandoned his Behurzlan DRIEAM OF A NEW PARTY based upon ('lrrlian philosophy and forgive ness of the sins of the Returning Board, and has set Iimself resolutely at, the work of re pDtiring the Itadlical ruin he has wrought. I have information, whiclh. I am satisfied, is in the main accurate, sufficient to warrant the assertion that the day of possible dissension lnllong the Relpublicans on questionll of mere policy has gone by. The Presildent has cer tainly signifled his willingness to abandon his ridiculous civil servlce order and to wage no more warfare upon the Conkling machine in Now York, together with evacuating other posi tions equally untenable from a partisan standpoint. As the price of this repentance he asks, I am told. onlir that no attack shall be made upon his Southern Policy by Republicans either in Congress or in future State conven tions' but I am also informed that he is willing that the base ingratitude of the Southern Dem ocratets manifested in the cruel persecution of John Patterson and the Returning Board, shall Ite excoriated to any extent of severity. Hei is ,articularly anxious to soothe the iancratel, feelings of the dellcate but prodigious Conk linag, and as for Blaine, that love feast was re laced to crumbs long ago. Pe-rhaps the reader maty t inmllairing by this tim.e what is to become of our late lamented friends, FOSTER AND MATTHEWS. To that inquiry I would respond, Go road the re' urns from Ohio! Foster and Matthews are regarded as having been "sot, down on" by the result in thieir own 8tat-, and are largely lift out of these calculations. The effort to run the Administration on the Kindergarten system has been abandoned definitely, owing to the presence of so many biad boys. Hayes says the tad boys were the D-,mocrats who, when he of f red them a few plumns, d-mnanlnd the wh le orchard, buit suilisirilently took the plums and then cllied him ha.rd names. But the D)emocrats say that. Iayes does not take the right view of it: that. after Joe Bridlelr had stolen a l)'mo-ratic Presidency for him. Hayes triel to steal thle Demonratic policy Ihimself, and, not being so expert as Bradley at the busi I'r.-, ,go. caught at it--btdh by thtievlmxoerjuia who didn't want to lose their polity, and by the Iadicals, who didn't want the cussed thing brought into their house. You may rensenlimr that, in a letter front New York last H:pteo, erlir or August. I sauid Ohio would go Dginoiratic by Ii larger majo(rity than oitituir party had obtained ihorn in several years; that the r-.sutII woulld le to stiffen lu the spinail columins of thue oldi-fashineit Itadicels. and that HaIuys wouild have eilher toI) slacunib to them or cas.t hlms-lf at the f.ot of the De mloiracy very so un tafter thl meeting of Con gress. Well, that oc.asion has now comi, and t'i. Pre-sident has apparently made up his mind to SuccIInIb to THE OLD-FASHIONED RAJDICALS. The result is that the second week of tlhet extra session opelns with the two parries con fronting each other in as unbroken a line as they ever dressed(l." This fact is really nothing more or less than every common-sen-,e observer expeted. It has always been easy to get tip a nlwspaper ftrotrei over new party schemes, and for that reason such political empiries as Rehulrz havt been able to t,btain a notoriety and to make an impression upon pyh-tic minds like that of Hayes, far out of proportion to any real potency or conse illuence possessed by them. But the people, the oi potlltoi, with whom politictal pr'oference is an instinct, are not easily whooprd out of their ancient paths into new ones. The old patbs may te worn into ruts and glu lies, or they may be full of slough holes, but the people know whither they lead, arid prefer them to the new paths whicbh. though smolloth enough and ear pittetl with the rostes of rhetoric, may be the broad way that leads to the devil for all they know. Has o~ himself is a sort of great over-grown boy, meaning well, blnt clumsy, and ambitiouos, but awsw-rtl. Actcordingly. when the soft guile of SichIrm was polln eti into hii m like a ,tream of castor oil, he liked the feeling of it. But a mo ment after-that is to say, at the present mo ment-he has ciught the taste of it, and this face is wry. Sehuris held some piivate revenges. and he whteedled Hayes into siving him an opportunity to wreak them. But BCHURiZ'lH i(t IS UP NOW, and Hayes is on his way btack to the innermost fold of the party that counted him in. They will forgive him, with the reservation that he must never say anything hnbit Louisiana and South Carolina, which are lost to Radicalism-gone forever, in fact. The burly Packard and the cadaverous Kel logg hauant Hayes like the ghosts of victims murdered in a fit of the jim-jams, and there is a spAt of bt)lood upon his hands from the slaughter of Chamberlain which must forever dance be fore the vision of Blaine. But barring these trifling points of difference, the eutenat cordiaile if not the Pssence of concord, is restored, and Hayes will henceforth loyally co-operate with the Iadical programme, which is, in ton words, to make A SOLID NORTH AGAINST A SOLID SOUTH in Isso. I need not tell you what this means. It means NO HELP OR HOPE FOR SPOFFORD, EUSTIS AND BUTLER to begin with, and from that on it means every possible expedient which malignity can hatch or devilish ingenuity devise to teach the people of the North that the people of the South are the enemies of the nation. In view of these portentous facts--for to me they are facts, and I can see them as plainly at this moment as if I stood three years in the future listening to the campaign fulminations of 1880. In view of these facts WHAT OUGnar TB sOUTH 10 Do ? Now, I may not be a wise eounselor. }or my S it, is to e ss oon a Isee t caca.a. ,.tý to tack. But if anybody talks about letting up obi the Returning Board utlder present ciroeu stances, shoot him on the spot. On the ote hand go ahead with the cases of John theymna and Stanley Matthews for I tell you the da-ef oily gammon and brotherly love is ended; Radicals themselves have endel it by mlen? among themselys and it won't bel before you will PartM e thunder in the Hopr and Senate, of which i have already ho'ird the rumblings and mutterings In caocuses and bade room conclaves I send ryo these hintshurriedly.
