MONDAY MORNING.' \N. 3, 136*
Eepubhcan Conservatism in New Ha np
shire.
The first political gathering ufuuy magnitu.b
that has been held in New Knglan I, or iu any
portion of the North, since the message of tic
President was sent to Congress, so far as w*
are informed, was the Republican State Cun
. ventiou of New Hampshire, which a-s« :u
at Concord, on the 3d of January. It is g:.it:
fving to record that it signalized its conserva
tism bv the adoption of a resolu;Ion rcc<>gii:z
ing in •* Anurkw Johnson, the just citizen, the
sincere patriot and the distinguished statesman,
and declaring that the tone and temper of his
recent annual message to Congress “ meets oui
warm approval, and augurs well for the success
of his Administration. We pledge him our hear
ty confidence and support in all his efforts to re
store harmony and mutual trust between the
different sections of the I'liiou, upon the prin
ciple of universal liberty and exact justice t"
all.”
This does uot look as if the Republicans ot
New Hampshire are disposed to join Scmnkr
and Stxvk.ns iu their war upon the President
and upon the South, or as if they were affronted
by the declaration, in the President’s message,
that by the Constitution each State is led to
••decide for itself the conditions for the enjoy
meut of the elective franchise,” and that ‘‘a
concession of the elective franchise to the freed
meu.by actof the President of the Cnited States,
must have been extended to all colored men
wherever found, and so must have established a
change of suffrage iu the Northern, Middle and
Western Stales, not less than in the Southern
aud Southwestern.”
On the contrary, they endorse the President
and his message, without exception, uualitiea
tion or reservation. This is a good beginning
of the new year by the Republicans of New
Hampshire. If tho Republicans of the other
New England States shall follow the example
. 4* Voiv I!•>tutsalftira* CutlH U NI'y\KK will
either have to abate his arrogance and abandon
bis.opposition, or sec his faction reduced to a
mere corporal’s guard.
That a Republican Convention, iu the lati
tude of New England, should altogether pre
termit the subject of the negro, it would be en
tirely unreasonable to expect, but this Conven
tion said as little on the subject as could well
have been said. Ouo of the resolutions expresses
joy in the fact “that chattel slavery u<> longer
receives the sanction of law or constitution on
onr broad domain,'* speaks of the adoption of
codes in some of the reconstructed States,
“manifestly tending to the ru-wstablish
tueut of involuntary servitude, little less
oppressive- than that which has just been
abolished,” and declares *• that it is the
sacrel duty of the President and Con
gress to sec that the ordinance of universal
emancipation, written in the Mood of «>ur
brothers and sons, lie uot, by any subterfuge,
made null and void.” This is not to be under
stood as referring to negro suffrage. It relates
merely to the powers given to Congress, in the
constitutional amendment prohibiting slavery,
which provides that “Congress shall have the,
powerto eniorcethis amendment by appropriate
legislation."
it is interesting also to note the position as
sumed by th» Republican Convention oi New
Hampshire upon the subject of the Monroe
Doctrine. That positi i, a- r.:i11minced in one
of the resolutions adopted, is— 1 tut the scheme
to subvert our neighboring republic of Mexico,
and to plant by foreign bayonets an Austrian
despotism instead, having had its origin in un
disguised hostility to the United States, it is
the urgent duty of onr Government t<» take
such decisive measures as will remove it-, itc.
The chief significance, so far as the South is
concerned, is attached to tin- resolution first
limited, endorsing the President’s message and
approving his restoration policy.
Mr. Bright, the Agitator.
Perhaps the greatest ami most successful u
tuagogue now living is Mr. Bututir, not M.*.
JcsskD. BRiuliT.ex-Seuatoii.t Indiana, but Mi*.
Jons Briiiut, the English Reformer. We be
lieve that his natural impulses were good, and
that he commenced his career with sincere
humanitarian motives and desires. But it :s
uot all of life to begin well. It is more impor
tant t<* continue to act well, and to end well.
Manv a man commences life ariglit, wh® ends
it in guilt and shame. Mr. Brushr became in
toxicated with his triumphs, and selfish ambi
tion and love of uotoriety* and popular ap
plause appear to have become his leaning in
centives to action. He is the foremost radical
of this age, and has a larger party* iu America
than iu England, lie has taken all the levellers
in all countries under his expansive wings, and
this day his ipse dirit is the law to thousands,

Mr. Bright recently delivered one of iiis
characteristic popular harangues at Birming
ham, England, in which he drew this picture
of the English p.n>r :
“Let us now for a moment (saM Mr. Bright)«ia>; out
eye over this couutrv. after the many great and use
ful changes that have been made during the la-!
thirty years. There remain, as 1 said. live in lliou
of families who are entirely unrepresented. Omtin
your attention to those families. There are a amngs!
them one million—considerably more than a million.
I believe, in the United Kingdom—of those 'th" art
classed in the uufortuuate list of paujers. There
are at least a million who are just above the paupers
_always in perl lest they themselves should be cons
paupers. Their condition and their prospcW are ni
more favorable than that. Then, look at tl e igno
rance of the lower strata of this portion of the iia
tion : look at their poverty. tli*- r sufferings, t Jieir ut
ter hopelessmsw of good. Why. in the A.tiere ai
Southern States, during the reign of slavery . even
negro had an idea that there was a day of jub.Ui
for him. ‘ Verily,' they used to say. • the L jrd wil
come and deliver us,' But in this clast, this lowc»
strata of the population of your country. 1 veutar
to say there is neither belief iu anything b- -tier to
tbeui'. nor scarcely is there any aspiration aft er it."
He theu instanced the case of Joh\ (.boas*:
the Dorsetshire laborer, who received an ex
cellcut character from hi> employer, unde
whom he had worked for twenty-four years, a
the rate of eight shillings a week. J«>u s Closet
had a family oi seven children. “ To provid
Hre in his hovel (says Mr. Bright) for his feeld
wife and infant child, he took legally » 1 b*
lieve he stole—a wo->deu hurdle <>t'tho valu
of six pence, and for that In- was tried l>ei»r
the magistrates and senteuced to twenty-on
days, or a fortnight's imprisonment.” Ho say
there are thousands of men like Joux Cross*:
the Dorsetshire laborer, who get only eigh
shillings a week, and there are hundred!* o
thousands who get only ten shilliugs a wee k
He then turns to the upj>er and outran
chised classes who are oppressed by \\ha
he calls “ the weariness of satiety." His retus
dy is suffrage !
From the exhibit made by Mr. Bright,
would seem that his owu country presents a
ample aud adequate field for the exorcise of a
his energies,without crossing the Atlantic to n
terlere with our domestic affairs. “ l’hys
ciau, heal thyself,” aud “thou hypocrite, ca
out tirst the be^m out <-f thine owu eye, ;u
thou shalt thoo see clearly to pull out the in -
that is in thy brother’s eye,” are Scriptural ii
junctions that are not sufficiently heeded 1
the Euglish reformer. Uader the teachings
this man, and other Englishmen ofhisschoe
lour millions of negro laborers, who, besit
“JohnCrosse, the Dorsetshire laborer,” aud'fl
hundreds of thousands of other English labo
ers of whom he speaks, might Ik- consider*
opulent, have been thrown out of employmeu
and have lost their homes. They had comt'or
able houses, good clothing aud a plenty to ea
both for themselves aud their (hiuilies. The
>■ I 1 lf,w
doctors' bills were j>aid for th*m, and 8» for
mprisonraent for debt, they did not know what
t meant. Iu exchange for all these things, they
gave a far more moderate amount of labor than
the English laborer gives for the miserable pit
tance of eight shillings a week. Mr. Bright
iml his follower* broke up this state of things,
made these four millions of negroes homeless
and penniless, and now most charitably pro
pose to relieve their necessities and sufferings,
by giviug them—not houses, food and clothing,
—but suffrage—“the thinnest io«>d on which a
wretch can dine.’’
Mr. Bright is simply a humbug and a dema
gogue. ___
Hr. Seward * Movements.
It us one of the inconveniences of greatness
that those who attain it cannot take a stop iu
any direction without Wing observed hv a
thousand eyes, ari l without being criticised by
a thousand tongues. Mr. Skw.yku is now ex
periencing this inconvenience. He lias started
j a voyage to the West ludies, giv,ug out that
it is undertaken by the advice of hi . physician,
iad for the benefit of his health. By a singulai
coincidence his son and Assistant Secretary o!
•state accompanies hint with the same ostensi
ble object. Scarcely has the vessel which
!>ears them left our shores Wfore the qui'l
mo». s- Wgin to speculate as to the real objects
,f this queer voyage. Mr. SbWARO is so iden
tified With politics, that the public cannot dis
counect him from them. His personality is
completely merged iu his political character,
lie is regarded as a being wlto can take no step
that has not political significance. He has
cen so long a diplomatist, that every move
ment ho makes is regarded as a dodge, and
every word he utters asau oracle requiring in
terpretation. Some of the Northern uowspa
[>crs altogether reject and discredit the reason
.unsigned—that his health requires the voyage.
They call it a mere pretext and a blind. Some
surmise that he, having a prudent regard to
liis future Presidential pretensions, absents
himself to avoid connection with the squabbles
that were anticipated by hint, as well as by
•thers less shrewd, as consequent upon the re
isscraiding of Congress. A man so conspicu
ous as the Secretary of State, and sustaining
.itch close relations to the Republican organi
zation, could not keep aloof from old associa
tion* when vital differences were impending, if
>n the spot, lie may he called the Father of
the Republican party, he is looked up to a* tin
leader of leaders, and guide, counsellor aud
friend to all bearing the name of Republican.
He could not act in the three-fold character ol
adviser to the Radicals, adviser to the Conser
vative*. anil adviser to the President, without
detection aud exposure, and by allying himself
with either, he would give offence to the
others. It is shrewdly conjectured by some of
the wiseacres of the New \ork press, that to
get rid of these complications, to shirk all re
sponsibilities, and to avoid all hazards to his
future Presidential prospects, he has embarked
npou this voyage.
Other surmises are, that the Mexican ques
tion is at the bottom of it, and that he will
touch at the island of St. Thomas, tho resi
dence of Santa Anna, to hold a conference
with him on the subject oi Mexican affairs.
One of the newspapers, surpassing all others
in andaeity of speculation, supposes that a
scheme is on loot, originating with Mr. Se
ward, looking to a paeitie settlement ot the
Mexicau question on the basis of a eesssion by
M wiuii.lAX to tho I'nited Slates of certain of
the Mexican States, from which his troops are
already withdrawn. This stroke id- policy, it
;s argued, is intended to lake the wind out ol
General Grant s sails, who, it is understood,
proposes to ahaudoii diplomacy and cut the
Mexicau kuot violently with the sword.
We know nothing whatever oil the subject,
»nd few we presume do. Like everybody else,
ve are inclined to think that the Secretary s
voyage i> not altogether of a personal char
*i*ter. It will he a profitable voyage if it en
r oles him to accomplish the three objects
.scribed to him—the improvement of Ins health,
>iis separation from the controversies now pre
vailing in his party, and the peaceful settle
■ m nt of the Franeo-Mexicnn question. Mr.
• Sewariy is not the man to take a step in any
1 direction, certaiuly to depart from his routine,
' without an adequate motive, uor is lie the man
| (ogive the real motive that governs him.

aud being animated with the same spirit which,
* through temptation, beguiled the mother ot men to
1 the commission of the first sin—thereby entailing
eternal toil and trouble on earth—issued, from be
biud the shield of his office, his mnnifestoof the 20th
: of June last, to the clergy of the Episcopal Church
‘ of Alabama, directing them to omit the usual and
customary prayer for the iTvsident ot the t uitcu
Static and all others in authority, until the troops of
, ti c I'nited States had heeu removed from the l mils
■ of Alabama, cunningly justified this treasonable
| course, by plausibly representing to the minds
: of the people that civil authority not bav
in.* vet been restored in Alabama, there
n.'s no occasion for the use of said prayer, as
* :ch prayer was intended lor the civil authority
ni me. anil as the military was the only authority in
Alabama, it was manifestly improper to pray for the
i > mtinuance of military rule. This man. m bis posi
tion of a teacher of religiou. charity, and good fel
lowship with his brothers, whose paramount duty
as such should liave l>eeu characterized by frankness
and freedom from all cunning, thus took advantage
! of the sanctity of his ]>osition to mislead the winds
of those who ualuratly regarded him as a teacher in
u horn they could trust, anil attempted to lead them
back int > the labyrinths of treason. For this covert
and cunning ai t he was deprived of the privileges of
i m ./eu-h p. so far as the right to officiate as a minister
ot the tSospel. because it was evident he could uot
bo trusted to officiate and confine his teachings to
1 matters of religion alone; iu fact, that religious
matters were but a secondary consideration in bn
mind, he haviug taken an early opportunity to suh
' vert the church to the justification and dissemina
tion of his treasonable sentiments. As it is. how
| over, manifest that so far from entertaining the same
| political views as Bishop Wilmer, the people of Ala
, batna are honestly endeavoring to restore the civil
authority in that State, in conformity with the Con
l I -titution of the I'nited States, and to repudiate their
t a ts of hostility during the past four years, and have
' accepted with a loyal aud becoming spirit the mag
i’ nanimous terms ottered them b_v the President;

the examiner and enquirer difficulty in the
HOUSE—MESSRS. TYLER AND COLEMAN, OF THE I N
QUlftKK, ACQUITTED.
Tlie Sjieakcr aunouueed that uutlor the head of
uiilinished business the next thing in order was ihe
investigation of the eases of Messrs. Tyler aud • ole
man, of the Enquirer, and II. Hives Pollard, of the
Erumincr.
.Mr. I.ek renewed his motion to refer the matter to
a select committee of live l lie ml km s to investigate
the matter. He wanted it thoroughly ventilated.
Mr. Dickenson did not think it proper to pass judg
ment by proxy upon the statement of any live gen
tlemen. lie was willing, if legal, to transfer ihe
power over to two or more members, but did not be
lieve the House possessed the power to do any such
thing.
Mr. (< ARNKtr saitl he was not present when the af
fair occurred, and was consequently free from preju
dice. The dignity and safety ot the House had been
outraged, however, if what he had heard since ni
r -mrii wore true, and he thought it proper that there
should iie no delay in the investigation of the mat
ter. He wanted the session closed as speedily as
consistent with the public iutcrest, but had rather
the Mouse should s:t until the 1st of August lle.xt
than such a gross outrage upon its dignity should go
uuinvestigated.
Mr. Pendleton saw no reason for referring to a spe
cial committee when the House had an appropriate
committee to which ii could be relerrcd, it relerenec
were necessary. He, however, opposed any delay in
tiic investigation, aud thought that the House owed
it to itself to act with promptness and decision.
Irrelevant motions were made by sundry members,
in order to get the cases of the accused parties in a
projier shape for immediate trial, and were t illed out
of order by the S(ieaker.
Mr. Lee suggested, as a measure preliminary to an
immediate investigation, lie thought that .viiiics-es
ought to lie summoned, lie therefore suggested
that Mr. A. If. Marshall, of Fauquier, and Major
Lee, of Orange, who were witnesses of the affair, be
summoned.
Mr. Herndon asked, in behalf of Mr. Pollard,
that the trial he |M)st|Hiued because of the absence
ot a material witness who had gone to \\ ashington,
and for the further reason that his counsel. Judge
Crump, was engaged in au^.aipoiiaui^ ease jf^; **/*.x*t
Ai 'llt o’clock, as the projior tone, lice.n.sc that would
not interfere with any special order oi the House.—
l*i the meantime the Soigeant-at-Aims could keep
the gentlemen iu custody, auJ summon all of the
witnesses in the case.
Mr. Woodson said th ■ case presents two aspects.
An indiguity has l»e«n offered the House, and the
majesty of the law of the. commonwealth has In-cu
violated. Lather, however, than deferring the matter
and annoying the House, he would prefer to turn it
over at otic.- to the civil authorities. He therefore
moved that the Sergeaut-at-Arms lie directed to take
the in to the Mayor of the city, and have all the wit
nesses in their ease summoned.
Mr. Lamhiuk.ne. of Portsmouth, agreed with the
geutletuau from Rockingham.
Mlt. Robertson, of Alexandria, said it was clear
ly the desire of the House to have an early investi
gation. As the parties accused stood in different
lights, he thought that while it was proper to pun
ish the guilty, the innocent should not be detained,
lie felt, in common with every member present, that
a grave indignity had been offered the House.
Mr. Woodson could not sec how the case of one
of the part cs could be investigated without the other.
The Mayor could investigate the matter, and would
know whether to separate the cases or not.
Mu. Baylor, of Augusta, did not think the Mayor
had anything to do with the question of the indig
nity offered to the House—and to refer it to the
Mayor was virtually to surrender the point.
Mr. Turner, ofllappahannoek, thought that tlie
parties had clearly, as in case of persons arraigned
before the courts the right 10 elect to be tried sepa
the necessity of postponing the rest.
Mk. Juyxes favored Mr. Herndon’s motion,
U--uiiac of the fact that both Mu. Pollard's counsel
and a material witness were absent, by tin- latter ot
whom he e.\|ieeted to prove that lie was not the ag
gressor. He regarded, however, the eases ol the
parties implicated as so connected that they could
uot be well sepernted.
Mr. (Jrattas felt ignorant of the proper legal
manner of procedure in the case, because it was an
anomalous one. lie did not think, however, that
the cases before the House were governed entirely by
the niles of criminal practice, ns had been as
serted. which obtain in our civil courts. He thought
uow was the time to stand by the dignity of the
Iiouse-, because no such period had ever been known
in the history of the t 'oinmonwealth. Members
ought, in his opinion, to felicitate themselves upon
tie- oppntuuitv offered to vindicate the self-rv-p-et
of the House, and to institute such measures a<
w ould put a stop to similar oc urreuecs in future.
Mr. Watkins thought thatthe grounds upon win h
Mr. Herndon asked for a continuance in Mr. Pol
lard's ease were well taken, to wit. that both his
counsel and a material witness were unable to at
tend. This, however, was not a good reason why
others, who were ready for trial, should be kept m
custody. One of them had expressed a w ish for an
immediate examination, aud his case ought there fort
at once to be investigated.
Mr. H ANsnoROfOR. of Stafford and King (ieorge,
was willing to punish the guilty, but not the inno
cent. ,
The Chair announced Mr. \\ oodsou s motion as ir
order. .
Mr. Watkins said it would be unjust to tens in
commode Messrs. Tyler aud Coleman. He saw :i
legal reason for a delay of their trial. If there wa
to l>e a delay, he favored the immediate discharge o
all the parties rather than the House ol 1 telega to
should tie a subject of ridicule. .
Mr. Herndon bad no |iersonal feeling in the mat
ter. He was a [lersonal friend ol Mr. fyler. and o-.h
knew Mr. Pollard bv his having been brought to tic
bar of the House on Friday. The charge is a gra n

conns.1 and a material witness are absent, that h

Ik-lav would not affect the other parties, if innocent
l.e ause tiie Sergeant-at-Anu- could Is- authorize,
by tin- llou-e to take recognizances for their appear
.-.nee at any lived period. Something was du-- t
public business, and. to have them tr:e-l separat-iy
w ill only involve time and expens.-. He thought
moreover, that when the House liad cooled down, i
would be ill a better condition to do impartial jus
tiee to all parties
It being one o'clock, the ('hair announced tin- s|h
i rial order, the stav law.
On motion of Mr. Jotnss. it was postponed unti
! the completion of the investigation in which tb
iiouse was engaged.
Mr. Word said that the Iiouse was consuming un
necessarily a great deal of time, but if member
would onlv follow precedent, the ease under iiivesti
gat ion could easily Ik- disposed of. He rememlx-ix-.
a ease in w hie li a member was hissed while sjk-.ikin
by a m in in the gallery. The offender was hrough
down. taken la-fore the Speaker, and severely r-pr.
.mended by him. He now moved, in lieu of th
[•ending proposition, that as all the parties had com
i lo tted a breach of the decorum of the House, thn
: all be brought before the bar of the House, aud sc
i verely reprimanded by the Speaker.
I Mr. Pendleton was opposed to a reference to :
committee, because in his opinion the question o
reference depended U|M>n the guilt of the parties, an.
what right had a committee to report the parties no
guilty, llow could the House, u|>ou any principl
of law . postpone the trial unless it was nupreparei
to proceed against them, aud no such plea has t»eei
■ I set up. While he wanted justice, and was willinj
l I to vote for a postponement of the ease of Mr. Pol
I lanl, for the reasons given, he thought the other par
- ties were entitled to au immediate hearing.
1 -Mr. Lee. to solve the difficulty, offered the follow
Ingresolution-(*Bomber of member*. ’'that's it"),
—which was adopted:
Hesolrcd. That the prisoner* now before the I
House are entitled to an immediate trial, anti that
we will now proceed to try such as are ready for
1 'mt. IIebspon here withdrew Jiis motion, and
stated that Mr. Pollard was williug to go into trial,
if Mr. Tvler wished to do so.
Mr. Imckersos made a motion to go into Com- '
mitto'eof the Whole, because then the Speaker would '
preside.
The Speaker—The gentleman is mistaken.
Mr. CrattaS—This will only cause the House to
wander further from the subject than ever.
Mr. itAVi.OR—The Committee of the Whole will
not determine anything, because whatever result
1 hev reach will have to be submitted to the House.
The motion was Inst.
The Speaker asked were the parties ready for
trial.
Mr. Tyler said he was ready, and elected to be
tried separate.
Mr. I.ek—Are they entitled to counsel ?
Mr. Tyler took a neat in front of the Sjwaker. and
said lie did not want counsel.
t>n motion of Mr. Kn.nr, the Sergeant-at-Arms
was directed to summons such witnesses as Mr. Tyler
wanted.
Thereupon numerous witnesses were brought to the
stand.
M it. Wonti, a member of the House, being sworn,
said—Dav before yesterday 1 heard on the streets
that Mr. Pollard was on the streets looking for Mr.
Tvler. who he contemplated caning on sight. Vos,
I heard that Pollard was in the rotunda waiting for
Tyler, whom I saw sitting in Mr. (Jarnctt’s seat.—
Mr. Coleman came into the House and went up to
Tyler. I went to Judge Joynes and remarked that
1 would go out and witness the altercation. After
Tyler had left the Hall, I started, but before getting
out one shot was fired. I learned afterward, by Pol
lard. On going out I saw Pollard on the East side,
with Mr. Marshall in front of him, saying. “Hou’t
shout Mr. Tyler." Mr. Tyler was on the West side,
and Coleman in his rear. Pollard was moving
backward and forward. I had great respect for Jlr.
Coleman, and told him to coine away.
Questioned by Mr. Tyler—What else did you say
to Coleman 1
Witness—I told him to come away, and have noth
ing more to do with that coward, (mcaniug Tyler.)
Mr. Tvler—Kid you uot say “damned cowardly
scoundrel" I
Witness—No, 1 never swear,
Mr. (iRattan—I object to this mode of investi
gation.
Mr. Tyler—I believe that Mr. Word is at the bot
tom of the whole matter.
A number of members here arose simultaneously,
ami objected to the question.
Mr. Jovsks- Mr. Tyler has a perfect right to elicit
the fact «f Mr. Word’s hostility to him, but cannot
go raft her.
Mr. Word wanted to make an explanation.
Mr. tinattan—If Mr. Tyler has uot the right, nei
ther has the witness; the gentleman can make his
statement afterwards.
The Speaker, after rapping, in order to allay the
confusion which existed, said. Mr. Tyler has stated
that the witness was at the bottom of the difficulty,
aud he is therefore eutitleil to make a statement on
that point.
Mr. M oitn—lie stated in his pu|>crtliat 1 had post
poned the action of the House on the question of the
public printing, when I had nothing whatever to do
with it.
Cross-examined-^lie was underthe impression that
Coleman spoke to Tyler as he was going out. Kul
uot know who tired first. Had no knowledge ol
Pollard's purpose of making the attack before a
clerk told him.
Mr. A. K. Marshai.i., of Fauquier, being sworn,
testified that, hearing that Mr. Pollard was in the
rotunda for the purpose of making an a thick upon
Mr. Tyler, who was in the House at the time, 1 asked
if lie was aware of the fact, and lie replied that he
toll] him I Imd seen I'otlard with a largo stick iu the
rotunda, and asked him if he was prepared, lie said
yes. aud if Pollard made tlm attack, lie would shoot
hiui. I am his frieud ami connection, and nude
him pledge me not to leave the House without my
knowledge. I again told him what members had
told me, and tiiat 1 was certain the attack would be
made. 1 told Col. Slaughter of the affair, and of my
purpose to accompany him. with a view of getting
between Pollard and Tyler, and of throwing my
shawl over the stick to avert the assault I knew
Tvler was cool, ami would not, in Hie meantime,
shoot. Hetwceu one and two. Tyler stated that
he was about to go home. Whereupon myself aud
Col. Slaughter left with him. I took a position on
i the fell oi Tyler on going out the door, so as to
throw myself l>etween him aud Pollard. On our
reaching the rotunda, Pollard moved hastily along
tic iron railing surrounding the Washington
statue, and commenced using all sorto of impreca
tions against Tyler, at the same time raising his
cane iu Ins left hand. I kept in front of him, ami
on seizing it, he released it to me. He then drew
luspi'tol. and 1 still covered him. He lired, but it
seemed an accident, as the shot went up towards
the dome of the rolumla. He tiled a se
cond time, to my surprise, in the direction of
the west door, lie then lired a third time, when
I hoard the report ol'a pl'slol from the same direction,
an l thought Tyler had shot, aud I was no longer in
front of him. 1 subsequently ascertained that Hr.
Coleman lired the shot iu question. Mr. Polluid,
hading himself in front id' two adversaries, now got
behind the iron railing. I approached Pollard, and
implored him to des..t. I think four shots were
liied, although some think there were more. \u
officer of the House came up and urged him to do
sdsi, as he was endangering the lives of nienihcrs
and others: lie did so, I heard Mr. W ord say that two
had set upon Mr. Pollard. I told him, in a quiet hut
lirm lone, that it was not so.
Mn. Marsh am. was cross-examined by Mr. Tyler,
Mr. Pollard’s first shot went up in the air, ami his
second aud third struck points iu the corner, near
the west door, about ten Icet above the floor.
Mr. Pollard wanted to ask some questions ol the
witness.
TIicSpkakkb—Though irregular, the Chair will per
mit it. if no one objects.
Mr. Crattan objected.
The Cuaik thereupon said that Mr. Pollard could
get any member to ask any question lie wauted to
propound to the witness.
liy Mu. Herndon—I did not see Tyler draw a
pistol, as he wont out of the door, as I was looking
ahead. I did not see his pistol during the whole
time.

Mr. Pollard was in tin- rotunda, prepared to attack
Mr. Tyler, he went In the latter and implored him
not to’leave the House. He smiled and said. “That
is all right.’’ I did not see him leave. Heard Hi •
tiring, urn! went to the door and saw Pollard retreat
ing behind the statue. I did not know Pollard, and
only knew Tyler very slightly, but deemed it my
duty to apprise him of his danger.
Colonel Si.AfuiiTKit testified that the same circum
stances occurred up to the commencement of the af
fair as were related by Mr. Marshall, lie heard the
first shot, hut did not know who fired it. He then
told Tyler to draw and defend himself. He thought,
at first, that Coleman fired before Pollard lired bis
second shot, but. on seeing Coleman subsequently
lire, and finding that lie bail only a single-barreled
pistol, he knew he was mistaken.
The testimony of Mr. Strother was not material,
aud we oiuit it.
Mr. N'owlan did not reach the rotunda until the
firing had ceased. He saw several gentleman
around Pollard, and went up to Tyler, who was
alone, and said to him, “ lot ns go out: this is all
wrong.” He replied : “ I only intended to defend
myself." About fifteen minntes afterwards. I exam
ined Tyler’s two pistols, and found all of their bar
rels loaded and no cap snapped. He was not out of
my sight long enough during the time to have load
ed a barrel. He had heard of the contemplated at
tack before it occurred.
Mr. Newberry had heard from a Senator that
Pollard was iu the rotunda, for the purpose of at
tacking Tyler, anil waited an hour to see it. Hr - tw
Tyler leave the House, ami followed: but, a shot be
ing fired, the crowd rushed to the door, so lie didn't
see it.
Mr. ltoss was in tiie library, aud on hearing th
nr.ng came out in the gallery ami lookeu uowu. uui
could not tell who tired lir-t. lie Haw Mr. Pollard
trying to slmut round the iron railing of the statue,
an l heard Mr. Mar-hall say don't shoot.
other witnesses were examined, but no additional
facts material to the ease were elicited.
The Speaker a-ked if the ease was closed, and no
other witnesses being railed, Mr. <1 n nett, of Essex,
offered the fidlowing resolution, w hich was unani
mously adopted:
Resolved. That Mr. Tyler is not guilty of any in
dignity to this House, nor of any breach of its privi
leges, and that he therefore be discharged.
Mr. Coleman’s case being called, lie agreed to lie
tried upon the evidence adduced in Mr. Tyler's case,
if the privilege of questioning one or two of the
witnesses upon points necessary to his defence, lie
also wished Senator Keen, of Pittsylvania, to he sum
moned. This being a—ented to by the House lie uo
enpied the seat vacated by Mr. Tyler.
Mr. Keen being sworn, said—I had just returned
to the city when I met Mr. Coleman on Capitol
Square yesterday morning ju-t before breakfast. He
is tnv jiersotial friend. He said Mr. Pollard, he
learned, was in the Senate Chamber the day before
looking for the Editors of the A’aiyuirerjliecausn of
an article which appeared in its columns, which he
had not seen. Mr. i 'oleman moreover stated that he
promenaded in the lobby so that Mr. Pollard might re
cognize him. 1 asked hint if he was armed, lie said no.
I never carry weapons. I then sanl you ate a fool
not to do so' when you are exacting an attach, lie
said no gentleman would attack nte in the capitol.
and if Mr. Pollard is aggrieved I suppose he will re
sort to the mode of redress usual among gentlemen.
1 offered him a small Derringer which I always car
ry in mv ]Hicket. and which was loaded '..is' tall.
This he'd'-elined taking ut the time. He .ifbTwards,
however, came to me and said that Mr. Pollard was
I agn'it in the rotunda waiting to make an attack up
,.a the editors of the Richmond Kmjutrer, and re
quested me to loan him the pistol, which 1 did.
The trial here closed.
Mr. Herndon moved that W. D. Coleman, having
he n guilty of an indignity to the House, he bronght
to tin- bar, and. after being reprimanded by the
1 Speaker, be discharged.
Mr. Woodson offered as a substitute that W. p.
Coleman having lieelt guilty of no breach ot llje
' privilege of the lloti-e lie discharged.
The substitute was adopted—ayes -Tt noe* 27.—
: So Mr. Coleman was discharged.

Washington, January 7.—Members are rapidly
arriving. It is expected that Stevens and Raymond
will have a tilt this week, which will positively de
fine the future policy of the administration. The
Radicals arc anxious to bring the matter to an
issue.
In well informed political circles, it is understood
that the President intends to make it a tine qua mm
that the Southern members who have been properly
elected shall he admitted to their seats, and that as
speedily as possible the Tennessee representatives
will undoubtedly take their seats, as the argument
used is, that Tennessee must be represented in Con
gress, or Andrew Jolmsou is not President of the
I'nited States.
General Sehoepf. a Hungarian, who has been in
command of Fort Delaware almost since the com
mencement of the war, has fallen into had repute.
Some derelictions of duly have recently transpired
which will probably end in a court martial. The
General had at one time, in his custody, about
thirteen thousand Confederate prisoners. It is al
leged that he has taken advantage of his position,
and netted a few thousand dollars. The necessary
documents will he laid before the Secretary of War
in the course of a few days.

From Kansas.
Leavenworth, Jan. fi.—An immense meeting
was held here last night to hear General Lane’s
views on reconstruction. Resolutions were unani
mously adopted endorsing President Johnson's ad
ministration of public nflVrs, and his reconstruction
policy as announced in his message, an.I pledging
him gnpport in his effort to perfect reconciliation and
harmony between lioth sections o! the eonntry.
It was also resolved that the theory upon which
the war was conducted under the late lamented
President and maintained by President Johnson,
that the normal rights and status of the States lately
in rebellion were suspended hut not destroyed, is
both Constitutional and commendable. The meet
ing endorsed the proposed amendment to the Con
stitution. making actual suffrage a basis of repre
sentalion, and- commend the freed men for their
faithfulness and loyalty during the rebellion, and
favor the passage of laws, State and Federal, to
protect them from oppression, and guaranteeing to
them the fullest enjoyment of personal liberty, rights
and property. And aisj that the Fruuduicn’s Bureau
is useful and ne cs.s.try, until the rights of freedmeu
are placed beyond jeopardy.

The Now York Tribune says, "tho reason why Drake's
Plantation Bitters aro so universally used and hare
such an iiumeuse sale, is that they are always mode up
to the original standard, of highly invigorating material
and of pure quality, although the prices have so largely
advanceJ," etc.
The Tribune Just hits the nail on tho head. The
Plantation Bitters are not only made of pure material,
but the people are told what it is. The Recipe is pub
lished around each bottle, and the bottle* aro not re
duced in size. At least twenty imitations and counter
feits have sprung up. They Impose upon tho people
once and that’s the last of them.
The Plantation Bitters are now —d tn all tho Gov
ernment Hospitals,are recommended by the best physi
cians, and are warranted tn produce an immediate b-ue
Aeial effect. Facts are stubborn things.
