The Republican and the Democratic Houses
both met in the Repr?sent?t i ves CEgmwbtw at
Coluuih'?*. S. ('., yesterday. Itoth Speakers
pr-_j-liii?r* The day wan spent in orderly debate.
One of Gen. Ruper's tBBoott announced to the
-aen)0<.ratic Speaker that the Edgctield Deniu

Gordon and Wade Hampton Rent a protest to
(Jen. Ruge1, saying the members would not
leave until removed by soldiers..
The East Haton Rouge returns in Louisiana
?-ri-re revised so as to throw out 1,136 Demo?

neM taeu of New-Orleans has been issued in
the Democratic interest. The voto of New

[BY mtgJtaU?gW TO THE TltllirVK.l
Washington, Nov. 110.?There is in one respect a
remarkable ?Hieren-'O _at-N-_ the i?r."_.?iit positions
of th?? two purl i???. The Democrats have a reeng
Bised leader. The Keptiblicans have none. N?> st? p
is taken by Democrats in any part of the Union
likely to affect the interests of their national organ?
ization without consultation with Gov. l?den. He
took command of the party immediately t?Att his
nomination at St. Louis, and his hold apea it __m
the election has been moro firm than befere. From
all parts of the country his partisans make piliri ?in
ttgos to N'cw-York to hail hiin as ?lietator and ask for
his or?l?rs. His instructions are ol?cy?-?l wttliont
question. Few of his adherents even venture to
offer suggestions. The politicians who come and go
at Mr, '-'?Idea's house in (?ratnerey I'ark arc like
?ii?-de-camp bringing news and conveying
eotumands. It is believed that Gov. Tildan
directs every movo tint promises to have
any be.iring en the result, from looking up the ease
of a disqualified ch'ctor h Oregon to making a bold
stroke for the whole electoral vote of South Caro?
lin-.
On the other hand the Republicans have no leader.
Got. HayessimnnonI no conn, ils of politicians. The
prominent men of the pait.v. knowing his irtlexiblc
purrxtse to maiiitain a tlignitied reserve while wait
ing for the decision of the Electoral Colleges, do not
trouble him with their visits. In no way do? s he
appear to desire to laflueaee the laitioti of his paity.
Ho holds hmiseif aloof ironi the game as though lie
were a disinter? stod sp.'ctator. ihe Repab?ean
polioy, if shaped at all l?y anything axcept circt.iu
?jtances and public opinion, lash-pod from Wushing
toi!. But it would be haul to name any one man
here, or even any Iva men, whoH ?licttiin could
be considered authoiitative. Premd? nt Grant
may he said to be ggoficio the party liiiacf, but he
appears to act from his convictions of his duty
M Chief Mu-?strate, and not with mm h
regard to the we_t_N ti the Republican effganiaa
?en, as t'<?r example m the Boath Carolina cnuplicv
ti?.~_ In a desperate eonteal for mtrntaamtey Hke tbe
one now wag!;ig,th4 Dealme rat s auputt lobe .??ronger
/or having an ablo and dictatorial leader; but the
Bsanblieaus, being made el ?lifh-iciit stiitt aii'.l ;ilways
p!i)s??i-ii!i!_ better wkea tiny have Ubertj al indi
vidual judgment and action, apptar lobe standing
together in the present emergency with as unbroken
s front as their a?lverKarie8.
The Republican members of the Honie, now lure
appear diep?Md ta ghre the vote ot their patty for
i>'>t aker to Gen. (jarfield. Now that Mi. Blaine ?oet
to the Senate. Garlieli] la generally looked upon as
the most iulliiential man on the minority side of the
House. If the Republicans should unite in giving
bim th;* complimentary nomination for Speaker,
snch action would be a virtual rcogintion of him as
_M_r leader. Bariaai mistakes bare beens_adebv
Gen. Garlield in his public career, but many eonaider
him in culture, intellectual power, and legislative
experience, i_t having few equals in Congress. Ihe
leadership of the minority dtuitig the approaching
wssion is a p)siti'.!i of inportaaoe. The
Republicans will have to stni'-'glo ?iK-inst a
fierce majority coneentiating all its energios ta the
one end of grasping .the pt_M t? Ott PtOtASmutJ.
Last Winter, by brilliant Strategy and a series of
impetuous attacks, the minority 0?Meed0_ in prc
venting their adveis.-tri?a from _:iining many advati
tapes, and before the M-doa ondod in midsuirruer
tb.y had inilii ted upon them a number of mortify?
ing defeats. The odds will l>e mon- heavilv __a_D8t
th?? minority this session, because, the DeOBOCnits
willtinq'iestionably display greater t-olidarity, and
willseek to < arry all their points by the weight of
their heavy majority, impolled by the ordern of Ihe
caucus and aided bv ruling- from th? chair. The
EepublicaiiB, then-fore, will need an able leader.

W-MDM_TON, Nov. :40.?Ii? tho ?p.'dilations i ur
reut as to the action of Congress when the votes im
Prcsiilent are open?.! and counted, it has been gen?
erally taken for grantod that the two Houses
Will un ot in the hall of the Uous<? of Repta?
Mtntative.- This has Heel the custom for many
years, solely on account of tho compar?t i v?J.v fun.ill
?i/.e i,f the Senate Chamber. Tin? custom will in all
probability bo doparted from on this occasion. The
I-i'sul.p.t '?f the .Senate. whoOS duty it is to occupy
the chair and open the eeitirii at.-s, will no doubt
call the meeting in the Senate Chamber.
Should the convention be held m th? House a very
severe embarrassment might arise. The House will
bo certain, unless the Democratic policy is ?hanged,
to insist upon the exist? MS ot the XXIId Joint Rale,
?-hicli mjuir?'- the two bodies to separate vvIkik v? r
a State is objected to. An soon as such an object mu
is made the Speaker of the H?>u.?>e vv ill invite the
?Senate to withdraw. The Senate, holding ?thai?le
to be abrogated, will refuse, and will thus be pla? <?1
in tbe onpleasaut predicament of persisting in r?
luaiuing after being shown the door, lor the Hou-?
the only alternative wouh? be ta eject the ?Senate by
lore? or to leave itself and take standing room in tho
rotunda of the old hull. If the meeting beheld in
the ?Senat? Chamber, the House can go off ji it
choose--, or rather the Denuieratic majority only
t-M?, sud the count can BPMMd without further dis
torhsuco. The St-nitte wonid be upon its own
Pound, and there would be no danger of an alterca?
tion.

Mr. itoldwtii Smith and wifo have just arrived in
Enplaml. I heard of tli.tn in Oxford last week.
They have not yet, I think, reached Lowlon. Mr.
Goldwin Smith's return on a visit will renew the re
tret so widely felt at the time of his departure, that
ho -houhl have resolved (o abandon his natural
career 111 his own country. I have not hoard that
hohas any intention of k?v?iik up his resilience in
Canada, hut should that be the case, he would he
heartily welcomed back to Kngland. True, he hud
made himself political enemies here by his courage
and ability in pol?ticaI discussion. Kvery _____?
Ktous and able man ?loo.? that. The fact that he
had, must have been a strong arimiiient with him
for staving in Kiigland. Hut he oei'Upied a peculiar
I'i'sitiiin; distiii-iiishc'l alike in academic ami polit?
ical life, and in literature, what he ?lid and endured
tor us?for the MBM of the Union in the ilays of tho
I-bellion?ou_ht to have endeared him forever to
Americans ; did so endear htm, I am sure, though
rumors at one time lloated acrrtsa the ocean that
some over-patriotic souls were thin-skinned enough
to resent tho criticisms he a?ldrcs.se?l to us while
Professor in Cornell University. I don't recollect
what tlu-y were, and 1 ?lou't care. They were proba?
bly just, but just or unjust 1 am roady to bear any?
thing for a man who bore so niiu'h for us, and arhoos
fiii'tidship was proved at a time when it cost a man
much to prora liiti:?elf our friend. And whatever
may have been the animosity he provoked, the spirit
of toleration and good faith between political oppo?
nents is stioni.' BBOBgh hero to make l-.is old S?OBliai
