Cincinnati, February 20. The Gazette's Springtield special says Governor Hayes, while en route from Fremont to Columbus, passed an hour in Springfield to day and was escorted tr one of the hotels, and on beinp introduced to the people he made a brief speech. He expressed congratulations that in a few week time this business, which has oc cupied the attention of the country for eight months, would be over, and he hoped that the people would acquiesce quietly with who ever nnht be the person declared elected. He believed that the country desires peace and security, acd he thought that this idea should be the expression of the people to their representatives at Washington. Roui izin:r uh lack of ppecial fitness for the duties, to the performance of which he might be called, he placed bis trust in Almightv God who rules the destinies of nations. These remarks were receive! with tremendous ap plause, and the crowd did not disperse until the departure of the train. Halifax. 1 latenxe Excitement Over the Small Matter of the. Imperial Meal. Toronto, February 26. A special from Halifax says that a question of precedence havingr arisen between certain of the queen's counsel, an affidavit was read in the supreme court Saturday setting forth that the sal attached to the commission of the queen's counsel, appointed by the local government, was not the great seal of the prince, but the old seal or dered returned by the imperial government in l-s'J. 1'he premier of the local govern ment admitted tbat the government had been using the old seal. The couit expressed as tonishment at such contempt for ner majes ty's authorized and expressed opinion, and said that all acts requiring the groat seal done sin-?e 1'.) were totally void. This state of affairs leaves Nova Scotia without a parlia ment and without a government, with all the grants of marriage licenses, and consequent ly marriages, and all commissions since 169 totally nud and void. The greatest excite ment prevails in consequence. The chief justice, after intim '.ting that it would require imperial legislation to rectify the matter, ad journed the court for ten days for a full in quiry. - Dint Proclaimed President Meta Ap pointed Treasurer C'aaalen Tri umphant Over Cortina. City of Mf.xico, February 16. rending the count of the vote in the presidential elec tion which has just taken place in this re public. General Diaz has been sworn in as president ad interim, the ceremony of which took place in the national palace, and was at tended with marked pomp beyond what is usually witnessed here. The presidential electors for Dijiz have been chosen, and, so far as is known, he has received an immense majority of votes all over the country. Don Jose Meta, who, before ltl, was the Mexi can minister in Washington, has been ap pointed secretary of the treasury. New Ukleaxs, tr"Jsaxy 20. Advices from Matamoras ria bywvrville, Texas, state that General Servanda Miales, the governor of this State, entered that city to-day with about one thousand men. It now turns out General Cortina was arrested yesterday by General Blance by the express order of Can ales, ostensibly lecause Cortina had not obeyed the orders from the general govern ment to go to the City of Mexico. General Canales, on his way here, took from Cortina's ranche about three hundred beeves and sev eral hundred horses, and it is the general im-' pression that the entire property of Cortina will be confiscated. There has been a long ftanding rivalry between Cortina and Canales as to the control of thu State, and it is be lieved that Canales will strip Cortina of his wealth and remove all his friends from offi cial positions on this frontier, thereby dispos ing of what has heretofore been a powerful impediment to his er.tire political control of the State of Tamaulipas.

Hewitt, of ew York, Hakes a Very Bitter Speech against Hoar. Charging the Massachusetts Senator Elect with -Bad Faith Members Surround Him, and, amid Great Excitement, Cate Remarks. That It would be Cowardice for the De mocracy to do! Otherwise than Op pone the Outrage Consum mated by the Electoral Commission. Progress of the Count in Joint Conven tion Pennsylvania and Rhode Is- land Counted Objections to South Carolina from Both Political Parties. HOUSE. Washington, February 26. The house met at ten o dock, but it was nearly twelve before business was begun, the interval be ing consumed in the call of the house, and in voting by veas and navs on the Question whether the testimony taken before the com mittee on privileges of the house in the case of the Pennsylvania elector, Mr. Boggs, ap pointed instead of Mr. Daniel J. Morrill, a Centennial commissioner, should be read. The house decided by UfcJ to 116 it should be read ; and it was accordingly read. Mr. Kelly offered a resolution that the vote of Mr. Boggs should be counted, "and Mr. Stringer ottered a substitute that it should not be. Mr. Kelly said the objection was based on principles so often overruled in law, that his side of the house could submit Xhe question without discussion. Mr. Strinirer took irronndB that under the constitution, and under the laws of Pennsyl vania. Henry K. Boggs w as not entitled to cast his vote as elector. At ten minutes past twelve the speaker an nounced the new legislative day, and after the journal of Saturday was read the discus sion wag resumed. Mr. Hewitt again returned to the charge which he made on Saturday against the good faith of Hoar for actintr and votinsr in the electoral commission at variance with his speech in the house, and said that the gen tleman, in his attempt to answer the charge on Saturday, had seized the mantle ot Web ster, and tried reversing the usual process of eking out a fox's skin of a lion's hide; but even the mantle of Webster was not broad enough to cover the misrepresentation and fraud. He cited various propositions and votes in the commission, showing that Mr. Hoar had uniformly voted against the ad mission of evidence to show fraud on the part of the Louisiana returning board, and he asked whether that quoting of Mr. Hoar's words was justice and righteousness. He flioar had voted in the Louisiana case that the commission had no judicial power; and in the case ot Oregon he voted that the com mission had power to take evidence of whether that seal of the State was or was not the authentic seal, and as to whether Watts held a commission from the United States; but where there was an allegation of fraud, then he had voted that there was no power to prevent fraud; ! that the government had been, on all occa sions, the great champion of justice and righteousness. His magnificent peroration in the Belknap impeachment case would long be read by the American youth, and yet that same gentleman had voted not to receive the evidence of fraud. In conclusion, I ask my Democratic friends deceived, defrauded and cheated as they have been whether we should meet bad faith with bad faith. I answer that never ought the record of the Democratic party be sullied by a single act that will make any man blush. I went on that commission against my will; I knew that whatever 1 did on that commission would be subject to misconstruction; but when 1 took my place I ceased to be a partisan; I tried to become a patriot; I tried to perfect a measure of justice, conciliation and peace for the suffering people of this country; we per fected it; we brought it here; it has been approved by congress and by the country, and now shall we stop in our career toward a solution oi the greatest problem ever pre sented to a free people because we have been met with fraud and injustice on the other side? I say no; let us give the people of the country ana of the world an example that, having been cheated, we can still trust in the providence and justice of God, and in the disposition and determination of the peo ple to do justice in the end. Applause and oommotion.J We have still a free ballot box and a free press, and we still are a free peo ple, and no justification for revolution, and no justification for civil war can ever arise among a tree people until they are deprived of the remedy of the ballot-box Mr. O'Brien How long will you be fre if Hayes goes in ? Mr. Hewitt (not noticing the interruption)- To that remedy I propose to report, and if that remedy be found in vain, although I am the humblest of Democrats and most feeble of citizens, I will be ready to take my arms, and lead if necessary, or rather serve, in a crusade against injustice, oppression and tyranny. While Mr. Hewitt was spaaking he was surrounded by a.;ircle of members of both political parties, and evidences of increasing excitement and commotion were manifest in this circle and all over the hall and in the galleries as he finished. Mr. Cate Wis. made his way through the circle, and addressing Mr. Hewitt in an ex cited manner, said: "You have pronounced the action of the commission to be infamous; a gross betrayal of the confidence reposed in it; a perversion of justice. Do you now de clare it to be the duty of the DemocraU to assist in a speedy consummation of what you pronounce an outrage ? Mr. Hewitt I say that I will yield to it, because I see no othercourse left but anarchy. Mr. Cate I deny it, and I assert it is the duty of the Democrats to oppose it by every means in their power. It would be cowardice to do otherwise. Great excitement and con fusion. 1 Mr. Veates forced his way through the cir cle, and with flashed face and excited man ner exclaimed, addressing himself to Mr. Cate and the Democrats w-ho were opposing acquiescence: "Thoxe who denounce us now as cowards, when the pinch came fifteen years agd, turned against us." The excitement had grown so intense at this time, reviving recollections tf the scenes in the house immediately -before the rebellion, that the speaker was called upon to interpose and to insist upon a restoration of order. When he had succeeded, Mr. Townsend New York took the floor, and compared the action of the Democrats to the familiar bargain be tween the white man and the Indian, the white man saying: 'I will take the turkey and you will take the owl, or you will take the owl and I will take the turkey." f Laughter. J o if the commission would have decided in favor of Tilden, the Demo craU would stand faithfully, but if they de cided in favor of Hayes then they woulJ howl and resist. Was that the way that honorable men discharged public duty? He referred to the saying of Judge Drover, of the New York" court of appeals, in reference to the outcry made against the decision of the court in the Tweed case, that in Alleghe ny county, where the judge lived, when a man waj beaten in a lawsu jt was under stood that thrre were but two 'nings he could do one was to appeal and th other was to go down to the tavern and swear at the court. Laughter. He believed that the people bad faith in the tribunal whether the tribunal bad decided right or wrong. He called on the other aide pf the house, in the name of the country1, patriotism, honor, and manhood, to do what the Republicans would nave been required to do in case the decision had been against them. Mr. Hoar, who was not in the hall when Mr. Hewitt made his speech, but who had notes of it read to him by the official report er, replied to it as a posthumous speech, pre pared during the Sabbath. He asserted that Mr Hewitt had had the fullest means of knowing, by three days companionship with him on the electoral commission, that the right to go into the ascertainment of facts as to who had been lawfully elected, was utter ly denied. It that gentleman were sane. and with ordinary intelligence, it was utterly incredible that he should have understood the matter as he i ow professed to understand it. This leader of a gre.-t party, intrusted with its interests and its leadership, why did ht not say that m oposition to every pub lic utterance and assurance that came lrom the Republican side, he had gone into the matter because he had got the assurance of some scoundrel that it would come out all right. He ( Hoar) wanted no other evidence ot the utter malice and folly that had prompted the charge against him than that the eentleman (Mr. Hewitt) bad himself furnished- the prophecy. It was. not one of the exact sciences, but he (Hoar) would venture to prophesy that there would not be an event in the history of the country which would be, in the future, more gratifying to the American -people than the constitutional assertion of the limit lietween State and national authority, which tin elec toral commission bad made. It the Demo cratic party, under the excitement of to-day, inflamed with eager passion tor power, dis approved and condemned it, he would appeal from I'iilip drunk to Philip sober; he would appeal, from party maddened, excited, drunK, in the present, to its future and to its past. iPplause on the Republican side.J Mr. Springer closed the debate with an ar gument against the decision of the commis sion. A vote was then taken on Mr. Springer's substitute for Mr. Kelly's resolution, and it was adopted yeas, l-'iO; nays, 119. So the house decided that the vote of Mr. Boggs should not oe counted, because he was not appointed in conformity with the constitu tion and laws of the State. The senate was then notified of the vote and of the readiness of the house to meet the senate in joint meeting. After the adjournment of the joint meet ing, and as soon as order was restored, Mr. I'oppleton moved that the house take a recess until ten o clocK to-morrow morning, which was objected to by a vote of 83 to 178. Mx. Wood N. Y.I moved a reconsidera tion of the vote by which the house had re fused to take a recess, and to lay that mo tion on the table, stating that he made the motion for the purpose of preventing a delay in counting the electoral vote. Messrs. O'Brien and WaHing called for the yeas and nays yeas, 182; nays, 67. Mr. O'Brien then offered a resolution de claring that the vote of William S. Slater should not be counted. Mr. Fames offered as a substitute a resolu tion that the vote of said Slater should be counted. After quite a lengthy discussion, the house proceeded to a vote on the substitute offered by Mr. Fames that the vote of the State be counted. It was agreed to without discussion. Mr. Wilson la.J, at twenty minutes to six o'clock, offered a resolution to notify the sen ate. Mr. Knott offered as a substitute that the senate be notified that the house will meet the senate at ten o'clock to-morrow morning. A jxunt ot order being raised against Mr. Knott's motion, the speaker sustained the point of order, and his decision was ap plauded. Mr. Wilson's resolution was then adopted. The house, at half-past six o'clock, took a recess till ten o'clock tb-morrow morning. KEXATF. Washington, February 26. The session was resumed at ten o'clock, but no business was done.

The senate then proceeded to the hall of the house. Upon returning at half-past three in the evening, the president pro tern, announced that the senate retired from the joint meet ing upon objection being made to the cer tificate of Rhode Island. The secretary read the objection to the vote ol William S. Slater. appointed elector by the legislature in place of George H. Corliss. Senator Burnside submitted a resolution that the vote of W. S.

At a quarter past three o'clock the senators entered the hall. The presiding officer called the meeting to order, and the action of each h&fise having been read, he announced that the two houses not having ordeied otherwise, the vote of Pennsylvania would be counted. Mr. Allison, one of the tellers, thereupon an nounced that the State of Pennsylvania had given twenty-nine votes for Hayes and Wheeler. The certificates from Rhode Island were then read, showing four votes for Hayes and Wheeler.

Corliss, coiliiig to the decision of the electoral commission, if such decision be law, rendered in the count of J. W. Wakts as elector tor the State of Ore gon, was duly appointed elector for the State ot Khode Island, and the substitution lor mm of Slater was illegal and unconstitutional Third II, m any event, it was com petent to complete the electoral col lege of Rhode Island Iv adding another elector thereto, it could only have been done under the law as announced bv the said electoral commission. If said de cision le law, and is pursuant to the law of said State, it could be done only by the act of a majority of the members of said college, and not bvthe legislature of said State. No other objections leing made, the pre siding officer announced, at half-past three o'clock, that the senate would now return to its chamber, so that both houses might sep arate to consider the objections. The senators, at six o'clock, re-entered the chamber, and the vote of Rhode Island was, after the observance of the usual formality, announced as for Hayes and Wheeler. The next certificate opened was that from Soutl: Carolina, authenticated by Governor Cham berlain, showing seven votes for Hayes and Wheeler. It was followed bv another cer tificate, showing seven votes for Tilden and Hendricks, with a statement bv the electors explaining the absence of the governor's authentication The objection to the Republican certificate was presented by Representative Cochrane l'a.l, and the objection to the Democratic one was presented by Senator Patterson S.C.. They are as follows: iirst that no leoal election was held in South Carolina for Presidential electors, the general assembly of that State not having provided, as required by article eight, section ree, ot the constitution thereof, tor the registration of the people entitled to vote, without which registration no valid or leal election could be held. Second That there was not existing in the State of South Carolina on the first of Janu ary, lib, nor at any time thereafter, and in cluding the tenth of December, lf70, a Re publican form ot government such as is ,'uuranteed by the constitution to every State in the Union.

Fourth That at the several polling places in saidState there were stationed United States deputy-marshals, appointed under the provi sions of sections 2i 21 and 22 of the Lnited States revised statutes, which provisions were unconstitutional and void; that said deputy marshals, exceeding one thousand in nurn lier, had, by their unlawful and arbitrary ac tion, in obedience to the improper and illegal instructions received from the department of justice, so interfered with the full and free exercise ot the right ot sunrage by the duly qualified voters of said State, that a fair elec tian could not be, and was not, heli in said State on November 7, 1876. Fifth That there was not. from the first of January, 1876, up to and including the tenth of December, 1876, at any time a State gov ernment in the State of South Carolina, ex cept a pretended State government set up in violation of law and of the constitution of the United States by Federal authority, and sustained by Federal troops. feigned by John V.

O'MAHOXEY. Funeral Demonstration Over the Re mains of the Great Fenian Chief at Cork Its Effects. Cokk, February 26. The remains of John O'Mahoney were taken from the rooms of the Democratic club to-day, and escorted to the Dublin railway station. The weather was fine and the popular demonstration a great success. - The city was crowded with stangers, and hundreds came in from the country districts, and a large delegation was present from Mitchelstown, the birthplace of the deceased. Thousands thronged the streets through which the funeral cortege passed. The procession was a mile long, and the coffin was covered with the flag of the Ninety-ninth New York .regiment, and American and Irish colors. Immediately after the hearse walked the relatives of the dix-eased and .a delegation from the United States, and they were followed by the Demo cratic club of Cork and trade organizations with their banners draped. All in the pro cession wore mourning with green favors. Several bands accompanied the societies. London, February 26. Various accounts of the O'Mahoney demonstration yesterday in the London papers concur in stating that it fell very far short of the expectation of its promoters. The most liberal estimate of the number who took part in the procession is five thousand, although most of the accounts place it at two thousand. The spectators were numerous but apathetic. O Sullivan was the only member of parliament present. The body remained at the railway station Sunday night under a guard of honor. Casey, a pardoned fenian, assisted at the funeral as pall-bearer. The American dele gates appeared rather surprised at the apathy of the pubhe. The Standard's dispatch from Constanti nople says that Colonel Valentine Baker has been intrusted with the organization of the gendarmerie. A Vienna dispatch to the AW says that when the Russians enter Roumania Prince Charles intends to withdraw from Bucharest, issue a final appeal for protection to the pow ers, and then remain a spectator of events. Dublin, February 26. The remains of John0"Mahoney arrived here this evening. The funeral committee received the corpse at the railway terminus. The coffin was placed in a hearse and drawn through the principal streets by a torchlight procession, in which eight thousand people took part. On the railway between Cork and Dublin, the people flocked to the stations to witness the passage of the train bearing the remains, and there were large assemblages at Charle ville and Limerick Junction. About five hun dred persons awaited the arrival of the train at Kingsbury. The procession, however, was deferred untd dark, when an immense and disorderly crowd blocked the ro-.d to the terminus. The procession with several bands of music playing dirges, began to move about eight o'clock, and marched along the quays. One account is that there were two hundred thousand specta tors. The remains were taken to the Me chanics' institute, in the theater of which they will be in state until Sunday. ' The mob tried to force their way into the theater with the corpse. They were so disorderly that a half hour was occupied in conveying the coffin a few yards from the hearse to the entrance, and those who bore it in were obliged to lift it over the heads of the peo ple. In spite of the efforts of the committee, thousands forced their way into the building af ter the remains had lecn deposited in the theater. Shortly after nine o'clock the crowd lxg;in to disperse, but the desire to enter the budding was such that it was not judged safe to open the doors to permit those inside to go home till eleven o'clock. jTITKHEEJKD IX aukaxsan. The I-Jfeless Body or Gordon is Riddled yvith Elft-ht Buckshot A Mys terious Affair. Early on Sunday morning the lifel :ss body of a man name.d Gordon was found in front of a grocery store, eight miles west of Forrest City, Arkansas. So far as we have heard, nothing definite concerning the murder has been received by the po.'ice authorities of this city. The murdered man was a sen of Mrs. Blackburn, of this city, who, upon receiving information that Gordon had been killed, started bv rail for Forrest City. On last Saturday night, Gordon visited the grocery, where, in company with several men, he began to drink liquor and became intoxicated. There were a num ber of shotguns in the party, but the names of the men who were present are not known. During the night Gordon became involved in a difficulty, which resulted in the free use of weapons, and he was shot dead. After killing Gordon the men dragged his body to the door and threw it out into the yard, where it was found next day. Large quantities of clotted blood were upon the ground and the steps of the grocery- Gordon "s Ixxly was riddled with eight buoksho: . The cause of the tragic affair is not known. JEXjLAXI. The Addresses to the Queen The For elffn Policy of the British Empire. London, February 26. In the house of lords to-night Lord Stratheden moved ad drosses to the queen, praying that her majes ty would adopt measures to prevent hostili ties in the east, secure adherence to the treaties of l-"6, and promote the welfare of the races subject to Turkey. Lord Stratheden urged t!aat the government should, by the acceptance of this motion, declare that they would adhere to the treaties so far as parlia ment would permit them, and by thus taking up a more decided attitude than hitherto little doubt would remain that the peace of Europe and Asia would be secured. Earl Grey made a strong anti-Russian speech. He deprecated interference between the Turks and their subjects. The Earl of Derby repbed. His main point was in refutation of Lord Stratheden's argu ment that England's treaty obligations were unchanged, whatever might be the result of the conference. He saw this argument carried to its logical conclusion involved consequences that if the powers once liound themselves bv a treaty to protect a ocaie, they must still continue bound even if the State wilfully acted against their advice. Lord Stratheden's motion was rejected without division. AX AWFITC DEATH. Man Confined in the Calaboose at Bolivar is Burned to Death A Soul-Harrowins Spectacle. Last Saturday morning, Mr. John Bynum, a well known citizen of Bolivar, met a fear ful death, the details of which are horrible to con -template. A correspondent at Bolivar has given us the facts attending the sad af faiif, which are as fillows: Friday night CoM8table Webb arrested Mr. By num, who was intoxicated, and - pro ceeded to put him in the calaboose. Bynum entreated the officer not to incarcerate him, as he wanted to go home to his family, but his appeals had no effect, and he was accordingly put in the calaboose, and the door securely loiked by Constable AV ebb, who then proceeda d to his house, a mile distant. As to thes propriety of the arrest and the necessity for locking Byuunj m the calaboose, we liavo heard nothing either to warrant or condemn the conduct of the constable, who -was doubtless actuated by a sense of of ficial duty which, as the sequel shows, how ever sincere, was fatal to the life of the unfortunate prisoner. About two o'clock Saturday nioming the daughters of . Mr. Chamberlain Anderson, who lived near the calaboose"- .heard cries for help, and at once aroused their father. By this time the cala boose was seen to be on fire, and Mr. Ander son rushed toward the burning prison, where he was soon joined by a number of citizens. As the men approached the calaboose they heard the frantic cries and terrified screams of Bynum, wLo made a piteous appeal. "For God's sake come ana let me cut,' cried the agonized wretch, 'as the flames hissed around him" and almost scorched his words. The citizens procured a rail, with which they.tried to batter down the calab oose., but it would not yield. The scene was one which can never lie fonrotten. The pine, of which the calaboose was constructed, burned rapidly and brightly, the flames leaping high into the air, as if cloatincr over their cruel work of death, In this cage of fire wai plainly seen the form ot the prisoner, -whose clothing was al ready smoking, as if in preparation for his fiery shroud. In vain did Bynum screim and cry for help; the red flames grew brighter and hotter, and in a short while the agonized man was steaming and burning to death, having sunk i ixhausted upon the floor of fire. At last the flames weakened the wood, and the men succeeded in breaking down the structure. But it was too late indeed. for aJl that remained of John R. Bvnum were the ashes from his consumed flesh, a.ud a few whitened bones of his body. The affair created a great deal of excitement and elicited universal re gret among the citizens of the town. During the day large numlers of people visited the burnt calaboose, where the coroner held an inquest upon the ashes a-nd bones of the poor prisoner, the verdict being that Jonn n Bynum came to his death by burn ing, he havinc set fire to the prison A pipe was found in the calaboose, and it is supposed that the fare accidentally originated from it. Mr. Bvnum was about thirty-seven years of age and leaves a mother, wife and several children, who reside in Bolivar. For some time he had been the leader of the Bol ivar brass band, and was popular m his com munity, where he had resided fora long num ber of years. Mr. Bvnum was a jeweler by trade, having learned the business under L). I. Wells, in Bolivar, long before the war. During the excitement attendant upon the burning of the calaboose, all the prisoners in the jail managed to escape. New York, February 26: The remains of Francisco Vincente Aguilwra, the dead vice president of the Cuban republic, lay in btate all day to-day in the governor's room in the city hall.
