Washington. Mar? h 10.?The probability o:
?itra session of Congress will awaken renew?
Vre>t in the question of tho organization of
House of Ki |T'mntativos. Many reports are n
*> to the purpose on tue part of Clerk Adams
Disking UP t'1" r,,u as to f,or"rc f?r T "? Deantn
lar^r majority than they are fairly entitled to.
?iete?M p. statements as to this fact, Mr. Ad
?jjd this evening:
" 1 have not hail any dispo.sit ion to make a i
t?Tvahout ?ie organization of the new Hooae, I
?m'frequently 'iinuv il at the various NfOthj I
what I have s.iid M the subject. The truth is I 1
never pretended at any timo to make t<> any Q
statement of what the majority would be. 1 1
no roll male up whieb I am biding away in soin

bhntetl stated afi.Tward m public that thel?.
?rats could not h?T< ? majority of less than :;, c
if the licpuhlh an? got all the districts about \vl
there was any question. This WM a BON ta
chai:?" of individual opinion at a time when tl
were nearly SO certif?calos yet to COUM in. It
?MM np?-]! fa' hi which any one familiar with
j, ? alt of the (lection could have obtained as wel
we. Since .hat time I have s, en DOthing to cha
|M judgment then arrived at. Some of tho eer
estos are not in yet. A few aie m the courts in I
g:tti'>n, and it is not settled which candidat?
1MB cases hM the prima facie evidence to
? tille him to be put upon the roll. In l'lor

not willing to sav what he belie
t!ie !' majority will be in c
aDtbeunsettled eaaea,where certificates have
been issued, should be decided in favor of the c

South Carolina and Louiaiana certificates if tbe c<

Adams appeared to be quite confident thai i

m v:< ws to \> - as to the chan< e of the ai ?>?.?
eai didatec foi the Speak? rahip,
It may be remarked on the aubj et of the
ganization that tbe opinion in influential Repnblii
eiltles is, that it will uol be a matter ol any imp?
ame whether tho nominal D?mocratie majoi
opon the roll is three or a do/en. If any break
that majority occura, it is believed thai it a
1" sufficiently formidable to embrace votea enon
to hold the balance of power between the i
