Hill reoiteratoed Ihe charge of fraud and rip'ion agatest Kellogg and iav'rredt thIit ofrd would prove 'Ii these chirgi s if al wd and permit ed to do so. He claimnd lhatt S urpose of the cou.mit.leo was to get at Ihe and legal evideoeo in the rase. A sub Sm I ttee was aptointed to make trt the issue d the conm ttee took one iweek's tiluo. atlli sy repotted that Kellogg and Spofford hadi on all the facts in the cnate. Hp,,Tord ed tt i, did not ctover the whole case, and ared that there were live points that had rt *ently comn to his kuowl'd.n shoiwl g fraud chid corruption on the part of Kellogg, but the smittee refused to allow him to prove this. W the Senate lie d wni in tlls mlire and 1ll I O corruption, and seat this man ? He spoke hlu an hour in a sltnhr strain. r. Wadleigh sail tie Senatr t:ornm (eorgia. in his anal, had gone far beyoud tllo rIet ,ird. lie asys the cotlmi tie refused to go into the charges against Kellogg. If there w s an body lathe country who know what the c arges gainestKe;iog.rwetl, and who knew just wlIat could be proved against him. that person wais Spofford for he hal beeoon counsel in the tases lnst Kellogg in Louisiana, a d knew he in m-eandou slde of every particular of every hflarte On tie 21st inst. he was asked to pro rt e tsa case before the committoe, and overy She knew to-day he knew then. If there is a mlngle fact in extence to-day. it was ii exist "nOe on the 21st of the month, and spitT nrd 'new every pa ti.l, of It. Iow he asks the committee to hold, and let himn send to Lou ana for Witnesses to prove the e s whichll . could have laid before the committee on e1st inst.. just oN wclt as now. but all this a. is asked for to illow the Nenate to got another case in ahoed of this; that Is all it ir. McDonald Paid that noew facts had btien discovered concerning tlit, tralnat.ilons of tflt eetret session of th, it turning BoUrd, by which itwas sought to change the p Iltical comoulxion :I.f the Leglslatui e so as t.' elect K,-ll gg to the a-.3teo. These fact- clUn it) brought, and they twfl affect per-oIl, whose i ames have not vet peared The colllmlmte htad r,.fused to allow ti be brought out. Willt hi Senate grant it ? is not to gain time. as has been alleged, but ibring out n w facts. Mr. Wadleigh itill contended that every op Portunity had b en afforded to Spoolord to t ve his allegailotns. I r. conkling ask, d if this refusal of the com mlttee to halt in the investigatlon, to stop the .heels of the investsg tlon, occurred before or afttr the terrible arraignment of t lie committe a the floor of the Senate by Senators on the( ,other side, to the efflct that the committee had been negligent in It- duty and had delayed this ae while a sovereign State was being deprived otbprearmentation on this floor.i r, lh-I would like to answer. r.Conkling-I am talking to the Senator ewe mpshire. adlelgh-It was after the speeches on t l o~oiutaigning the committee. r. onkling--statethat the commnittee was 'raigned by Democratic Senators for its doe i y and negligence in this same ces-, and I aver at a Democratic Senator said it ought not to ye gone to the committee at all. antd that it should have been reported by the committee long ago. Another Senator claimed that no in estigatilon was needed at all in the case, be cause there was so little in it; that all the faeels re recorded by both partiva; that the case was as clear as though Mr. Ke logg was dead, 'the Senate had attended his funeral: ' t was closed up so far as Hellogg ., Acerned, and now we are urged to m,° he committee more time to .0 lease and make it up. We heard a statement of what the country g. tcow. If I had the commanding of ountry should know I would call the a f the ountry ito that same Senaeor, eAdg up the Seoate at night, not long sinc'e, o r.red that there was not a single reason "r investigation at all. and now he rises and asks for more delay to make up ; for oeiay. for prevention, for manocu Insisting, that the committee shall re itself into a police force. to go to the .Pand hunt up evidence touching the charnc of one of the claimhnts; and that th's same Senator who, on a recent occasion, told the enate of the trivi 1 incon equentiality of the matter and that it couii i b dlteduct in a minutePs time. If he (Conkling) was not mistaken some ind gnntion aits expressed that the character of a g nt leman from South C rro lina, who enme here with his hands and face dripping witu the blood of murder, should be quired into. He did not propose to get into this case, bu' his credulity refused to honor the draftwhen he heard this delay arg ed for, when we have been told all along that the caoe! was so trivial that no investigation was nee s Atry. Complalnt was not made about Kellogg's ease until another case had been wrested fr ,n the committee. Complaint was made that the other ease had not been ikenake p, and now the l mocratieside complain that Kellogg's case isa not ,kept behin i while the comnittee goes tothle Gulf for evid nce. Mr. McDonald still insisted that new evidence _ad been discovered that had not been brou-ght out in any of the investi itions, and that the omnmmittee had refused to hear it andthey asked theorecormmittal to the commItteoto hear it now. AColloquv sprang up between Messrs. Hill. ieDonald, cMllon and Wadleigh ill regard t the evidence before the different investiga ogeommittees and the character of some of e witnesses, mostly relating to matters which ve been before presented at different times. Mr. Gordon said he wished to immortalize o attitude of the Senator from New York for is Consistency. The Senator had sought to ake a demon of a man upon evidence that had n entirely disproved. He had sought to .la discredit upon the Sta'e of South Caroli and upon a g,'ntleman who was not on this rto defend himself. . Conkling said he should be sorry to in ~tfere with the speech of the Senator, which bromlsed to be a good one, but he did not mean,. 'r did he say, anything that had been all'g'd. . had attempteodtohold up In contrast the de 1w masked for now in one case, to go into the touching the chara.Ater o' one man and d no of hands naginst it in nnother case. did not object, howeee r. to having the Sena ,torfrom Georgia proceed in thtttheory. It was ad that rhetoric should not be c-nflned too ly by arlthmatic and other things. Mr. Gordon: "That saying ;aa: been finely .emrlifled in the Stenator's owls rmarlks.' Er. Gordon continued at length and defended Butler and denounced Doe Adams, who kling had characterized as a born leader of n. Gordon claimed that the bst blood of tthe Revolutionary soldiers mingled in the veins of Butler Mr. Edmunds read some portions of the testi taken in tie Kuklux inve'tiga ions in isit alch Mr Butler d-fined his position on the eetions then exciting the country, in which nds claimed that Butler was not placed in attitude of a good and loyal "itizen. Mr. Hill recurred to the Kellogg-Spofford and repeated hl; assertion of fraud and truption on Kellogg's part. He denied that urpose of recommittinp was for dely, butt imted that the cause of justice demanded the mmittal of the crase. Mr. Cameron, of Wisconsin, alluding to a re rk of Mr. Patterson's, that no outrages had rred in the county in which Mr. Butler , said Mr. Patterson had not full knowledge counti, s of the State he came from; he not surprised that Mr. Patterson should be on the geogranhy of South Carolina. for W .5 ome time since he had been there. Pattersoa--I have been there since the r fromnt Wiseontin has.

Mr. Mlerrimon nrguedrl to show that Don Adams. who had testilled against Butler. was unworthy if b"lief. Mr. Sargnut said it was the impression whlich hadl prevailed,. and whieh still rirevailed. that Mr. Butler was elec'ted to the Senate as a reward for political servi;os, and thatl part of said services wis an alleZged Iionnection with the llamltbrg massacre. In v ow of the prevalence of that impreission. It was proper to inquire how fair Mr Butler was corne',rneid In the said riot. He then proceeed- to read from reptortis of meetings of colored men ini Houth Cartolina, and from testimony taken by the sveral commit tees, to show that Butletr wtas accused oif om pticity with that, riot. lullh a collrce as hI ad pre\iatled In South Carolina. andl whih'l had resulted in retlurnling him to, l.

He referred to the way in wll ih the Republican imajoriti e in oith Carolinia hliad vanlihel, and said It was all the result of the riots that had boten ciiiuliitid.

Out of 384 delinquout taxpayers all but 72 boast of Gallic names. The Alexandria lkremorat and (olfax Ch'roni cl are flighting fiercely over the proposed abolition of Grant parish. The police jury of Lafayotte will not pass a Sunday law. The people of the parish want the Legislature to pass such a law for the whole State. The sugar-house on Col. It. E.

Pen Pictures of a Few Representatlve Ken a tors. [Boston lHerald.] (IORDON OF GEORGIA. Conspicuous among the gentlemen from the South is. Jhn B. Gordon, of Atlanta. He was wounlded eight times in Confederate battles, and bears the mark of a sear upon his cheek. He is tall, of commanding presence, with straight black hair, blue eyes and a not wholly patrician nose. His colleague, "Ben" Hill, looks less like a soldier and more like a scholar. lie is tall and bent in the shoulders and wanders about with his hands behind him in a dreamy abstracted way. His hair is slightly tinged with gray, his eyes are blue, and he is much given to meditation at dinner and at other inopportune times. His speches are good, his eyes clear in their out look, and the prevailing expression of the man, both in person and countenance, is one of sadness. Among the most conspicuous for form and face is Senator DAVID DAVTIS OF ILLTNOTS. Weighing over 300 pounds, he has to have a special chair built for his benefit. But were his ligure smaller, his head and face would command attention. The most intimate friend of Abraham Lincoln, a certain rever ence clings to his name which is well sus tained by his i-resence. hiis head is large, his face strong, and the whole expression of his countenance benignant. The silken softness of hislhair is particularly noticeable, in spite of his immense size, indicating, as it does, fineness of temperament. If the other Sena tors were troubled with his talent for listening, the Senate would indeed be what it now often is not, a truly judicial body. Not a Senator opens his mouth, but the ex-Justice and great Senator approaches as near as possible, in order to catch every word that falls from his lips. As a seat of ample proportions had to be built especially for him, this sometimes causes somne inclnvenience. Yesterday, as Senator Maxey,. of Texas, was speaking, Judge Davis appi'uached and took a seat near him. The chair, rebelling at the unusual weight, softly gave way, and dropped the great Senator on the floor. JAMES G. BLAINE, of Maine, though among the new Senators, it seems superfluous to describe, so familiar is his face and figure. Still, in a few years, his appearance has greatly changed. He has grown bulky, his hair has grown gray, and the fatal water sacks of the sleepless have filled about his eyes. In stature and presence he is still one of the most remarkable men of the Senate. In the same number of years he has grown old even more than Conkling. GEORGE F. HOAR, of Concord, so long familiar in the House, presents a new face to the Senate. In its con tour, coloring and expression it is strongly like that of Horace Greeley, and even the tones of his voice recall to his friends the presence of the great journalist. Since be cominig a Senator MIr. Hoar has improved in presence and in manner. He is in person iore serene, and in speech more affable. He is clear-headed, and nearly always in the van of advanced ideas. He is likely to make a mark in the Senate of which Massachus'etts, even, need not be ashamed. STANLEY MATTHEWS, the only Senator who is supposed to be able to whisper in the presidehtial ,icr. He is not so imposing looking a mortal as Conkling, who won the high insignia last year of whis perer at the White House, but is quite the average Ohioan. His extremely sanguine temperament glows in the red-yellow hair and heard, in his beaming blue eyes and blooming cheeks. He looks like a younger Brigham Young. That is, he looks like the pictures of Brigham Young. I would be the last person on earth to accuse this gentleman of resembling the disgusting Mormon in character or habits. Mr. Matthews seems rather a man of refinement than of great mental force. He dresses with extreme care. His high white collar is faultless, his head is fine, his brow commanding, his countenance open, but his nose, slender and rather flat, is no' the nose of power. It will never cleave his way to eminence, like the proboscis of Evarts, for example. The Basque Provinces. [Oourier-JournaL] The old trouble is breaking out again In Spain. The government is trying once more to make the Deople of the B.s ue provinees (Gi puzcoa, Aav, Blcay and Uthper Navarre) pay taxee lik the k eople of the other provincs., sad they deilneto do so, falling baek, as usual, un th*m Ifoeurs or tdIII..Rom eO tita tional privilegies. by whihlr they are exempted from all taxes and imposts exc.eot such as theif own provincial councils may levy on the peo pie. These exemptions are claimed on roynd doree's dJlting btck to the thirteenth century. and en three or four occasions, when the PDi ilh tings and unoeens have set them aside, tbe iasrlqu people have revolted, and have alway Rueeoeded in retnining their privileges. T'e junta at Victoria has just refused to comply with Alfonso's decree, anrd there may bae another revolution. The Spanish overnment is hard pushed for funds and believes the ltasques should be coerced like the other ~ov jmh'es. MEXICO a.iEnr ING ANGRY.

Hall of th Texas S, ate troops, arrived her to-night, H. commands the company that rendered suach e cellent service under CaA.l MNally during e border trouble sorae months ago. Theoomlpa nfy consists of thirty-five pi ked men, each o4 whom is armed with the authority of a deputy sheriff. A regular military orgafizsation F maintained and the company patrols a taja section of the border. Capt. Hall states th much apprehension is felt along the border u in fact throughout all the State. of comtni trouble with Mexico, and the people are beralg both the Hiate and national government ica better protection. The Governor is organisin., regiments of State troops to hold in readine.s in case they are needed, and petitions are being forwarded to Washington for additional eavaLr regim-nts on the frontier. Capt. Hall is pue from the border, where he has spent most ofh s time for several years pact, and he says the feel ing in Mexico is very bitter against the United States. The Mexicans think they would be sue cesstul in case of war, and hence are rather anxious to provoke a disturbance. This is the feeling among the people, who say they wou remain in this territory to fight, and c repel any invasion the United tates col make. "There is no tradit on in history of feat among them," said Capt. Hall. "They cele brate the bat le of Buena Vista with the sa.me pomp as the execution of Maximilian." s-ems that they have boasted so habitually that they have deluded themselves into the belief that they were never defeated. As an evidoe of the hostile feeling among the Mexican pop lace, Gen. Canales was forced to resign Lis p-. sition in the M.xcearl army for surrendering _L the authorities three notorious robbers. The people denounced him as a traitor, and threat ened to mob him. The Dia~ government is en deavoring to enforce some a-gre' of law. hta Capt. Hall thinks the populace will force a war. lie says that any Mexican who commits a crien on the Ame' ican side not only finds protection among the Mexican people bu' is madeahero of. The Mexicans say that the Texas border is too far west, anw they intend to force it back to the Nueces river if it takes war to do it. -0o40 c---- Cabinet Meetlngs. iCincinnati Enquirer.] At the meetings of hlaves' Cabinet there i. some set formality, not new to the Cablnet chamber, but often forgotten by the peopi. "We sit," said one member, " in an order care. fully observed. '1 he President has the large chair at the head of the table. On his right sitl Mr. Evarts, who is the leading officer, and in thit Cabinet is ,decidedly the most loquacious. Op posite Evarts, on the President a left, is ir. Sherman. 1B -low Evarts sits MeCrary, of the war power who is opposite Thompson, the naval chief, and Key, tne Postma-ter Generalt whose ris-a-,is is the Attorney General Devens. Carl Schurz is at the foot of the table, furtheat from the President, because his department waee the lIatest in time of its institution. Mr. Hayes speaks with con-iderabli positiveness some times, and more han any Cabinet minister. walks up and down the room while talking or forming his judgment. The members push hack their chairs from the tabtle, reclining or sitting at ease. If a Cabinet minister is absent the assistant represents him, and thus it has hapoened th .t F. ed Seward and Richard Me CormicK have had the right and left hand of the President." The New York Vote.
