Address RUTLKIKiE Pl’BLlsll t>' i CoXfA^Y, Laston, Peuua. Congressional Spice. In the House, ou Friday Mr. Herbert, from the committee on naval affairs, re ported back the Boutelle resolution calling '•n the Secretary of the Navy for informa tion relative to the alleged erasures of cer tain inscriptions aud the dismissal of I nion soldiers at the Norfolk navy-yard, with an amendment extending the inquiry to dis missals made at the navy-yard and light house district at Norfolk during the terms of the .uiuiediate predecessors of the pres ent Maretarv of the Navy. The republi cans didn't like the widening of the scope of iuquirv and by filibustering attempted to prevent the adoption of the committee's rv'olutiou. Finally they got down to live ly talk The debate was opened by Mr. Boutelle of Maine. The resolution he had intro duced had related to allegations that an of ficer of the United States government at one of the navy-yards of the government had ordered the obliteration of honorable inscriptions on cannon captured by the United Mates, and hail caused o be re eved from the dry docks a memorial tab let setting forth that it had been destroyed bv the rebels in 1862 and reconstructed in ls6ii. He did not understand that the facts had been in anv way contradicted. Mr. Boutelle then referred to the removal >t the superintendent of machinery at the navy-vara because of his demurring to the defacement ef the dry dock, and the ap pointment of a man whose title to the po sition rested ou a service in the Confeder ate army. He considered that a sufficient reason tor calling attention to the matter. He had found evidence that since the 4th of March, 18 So, there had been repeated and systematic removals from the positions in whicti they were placed of officers of the eoveruiueut, of wounded and disabled vet erans ot the republic, to make place for the men who had sought to destroy it. He deemed that a fitting matter to call to the attention of the House aod country. The attempt whenever made, and by whoever made, to sot up the plea that the tearing down of the loval memorials of the war was demanded by any broad sentiment of pa triotism was based ou absolute sophistry. [•|,e -otidier who cauie to Washington might waa ler in vain through the great art repoo i\ of this city looking for the counterfeit ;>re- ntneni of one ot the heroes who sus * . . .. i tt • _ r i . _IJ laiueii uie ^ tiud that the only men who were memorial i/ >1 ami remembered in the Corcoran Art (i 11. rv were Robert E.

Two years ago, when the House was considering an appropriation of one mil- j lion dol ars tor the New Orleans Exposi tion, the people down there who were so anxiou- to have Union memorials oblitera ted were erecting a monument feet high to Robert E. Lee, the chief—the military head of the Rebellion. There was no jus tice in the claim that a broad patriotism required the obliteration of the records of the grandest triumph ever made for human-* ity -ince first the morning stars sang togeth er. 1 Applause on the republican side.)

Vpplause on the republican side.] Mr. Wise was glad that he had an oppor tunity to make a statement of facts, although h* had hoped that the subject of this resn lution would not have been discussed until information had been received from the - cretary of the Navy. The gentleman fr ai Maine (Mr Bmitelle on more than .me occasion had sought to revive the j>as -:on- and prejudices of war. He (Mr. \\ ise) w uld examine how much of truth there w w in the statement of these resolutions. I Secretary of the Navy was called upon t. report if any tablet had been destroyed at tin* Norfolk navy-yard which commerao- j r. * I the fact that the dry dock at Ports- | m uth had been destroyed. He was glad ut the opportunity to inform the gentleman fr- - a. Maine that the dry dock at Ports mouth had never been destroyed. [Ap plause on the democratic side.) The gen us asked the Secretary ol the Navy it inscriptions had been removed from cannon captured from the Confederate army. He would inform the gentleman from Maine that no cannons with such inscriptions had ever been in the Portsmouth navy-yard. Applause on the democratic -ide. Fhe gentleman from Maine wanted to know it a l uion soldier had been discharged aud a Confederate put in his place. He would inform the gentle man from Maine that the man w ho was dis charged had never been in the Union army, ha i never been w ithin a thousand miles of a line of battle.; had never Ikurd the music of a minic bullet. (Apnlauso and laughter on the democratic aide.} Mr. Boutelle.—“Did he not reader great service to his country?” Ni>, sir,” replied Mr. Wise. “He, sir, was in receipt of a large salary in a bomb proof p sitiou while brave men fought the battles of their country.” Mr. Brady rose and asked permission to li. .Hiouiid a question.

Go read the speech ot Charles Suiuner, ot Massachusetts. It Mr. Gunner knew his magnanimous suggestion would be quoted by you for such a purpose he would turn in his grave.” ex ciaimed Mr. Boutelle, amid much confusion. “Go,” continued Mr. W ise, "read the speech of Charles Sumner, of Massachu* setts. If l mistake not he was the first man in the country who declared, some fifteen vears ago, that the time had come lor peace, and that the bitter memories of the war should be removed. And mark the contrast between the leader of the Federal army and the gentleman from Maine. The last words spoken by that great leader on his dying bed at Mt. McGregor, were that he thanked God that he closed his eyes on the world believing that peace had returned to a distracted country. [Applause on Demo cratic side;] and yet, and yet the halls of legislation are to be annoyed by the back* 1 biting of such men as the gentleman from Maine. Now, Mr. Speaker, I want to say one word more to him. \\ hile wc sit here and vote pensions to your soldiers” “0«r soldiers,” exclaimed Mr. Boutelle. “Yes,” replied Mr. Wise, “our soldiers. We are in the house of our fathers and we have come to stay. [Applause on the Dem ocratic side.] While we are ready and wil ling to vote pensions to honorably discharg ed soldiers who served their country in time of war, we will never consent that it shall be held and proclaimed on high that one who bappeued to have been in the Conted : crate army is forever disbarred from the : service of his country. I protest that these I honorable soldier* ot the l uion army shall ■ never again bo subjected to the treatment they were subjected to under the last adrain : istration, when men who had fought brave ly for the Union under the circular bearing the name of William Mabone as chairman ; and .lames D. Brady, the present member of this House, as secretary’ “There was no such circular,' interrupt ed Mr. Brady. I challenge him to produce the circular.’ "When,” continued Mr. Wise, not heed ing the interruption, “they were required, under the whip of a master, to give money for partisan purposes ; required, like slaves, to hold their ballots up that their bosses’ minions might see whether they voted right, Oh! what an attitude in which to place a discharged soldier of the Union—under the whip and lash of a Confederate brigadier.” Loud and continued applause on the Dem ocratie side and in the galleries. | At this point the Speaker brought down hi* gavel and declared that Mr. Wise’s time had expired. Mine Explosion. Special to tin' Wheeling Registry. Newburg, W. Va., January 21.—A most disastrous explosion occurred at the shaft of the Orrel Coal Company here to-day, at 3:20 o’clock p. m. The shock was a terrific one and was heard for more than a mile away and shattered windows and the tim bers in many houses of the town. I he -halt is 330 feet deep and there were thirty nine miners at the bottom mining coal, a majority of them married men and living in this town and vicinity.

Woods, a former resident of this town—died at his home in Staunton on Tuesday of last week, iu the 37th year of his age, of rheumatism of the heart. All the Staunton papers pay handsome tributes to his memory. From the proceedings of the Chamber of Commerce we take the fol lowing .• 'Twas but a few days since that our friend and associate, Andrew Gilkeson Woods, walked among us in the seeming flush of robust health, yet, to-day, in the conclusive wisdom of an All-wise Creator, he has been called from earthly scenes, and, in the ear ly hours of manhood’s morning, has crossed c’d over she river to his eternal rest. As a youth, reared in our midst, lie gave unquestioned promise ot future usefulness in any vocation adopted, which was amply realized in his fine uudness qualifications, with bis nnflinrhimr inteoritv. which rendered him indispensable to those whom he assisted in hi> earlier life, and, as the head of the house of A. G. Woods & Co., endeared him to all who came in busi ness contract with him. Of enlarged views, he was ever awake to : the interest of his city and bis people, and, naturally, the advocate of everything cal culated to improve the one or add to the prosperity of the other. Sensitive to suffering, he was ever ready to relieve, either with personal effort or pe cuniary assistance, promptly rendered. Generous, to a fault, and peculiarly un selfish, he was necessarily the warm friend, j the devoted son «nd loving brother. To his widowed mother and only sister, so sorely afflicted by his death, we tender our warmest sympathy and condolence, and ' bid them believe that all is for the best.

The fatal rapidity with which slight Colds ami Cough's frequently develop into the gravest maladies of the throat and lungs,'is a consideration which should impel every prudent person to keep at band, as a household remedy, a bottle of AYER’S CHERRY PECTOltAL. Nothing else gives »ueh immediate relief and works so sure a cure in all affections of this class. That eminent phvsicls t. Prof. F. Sweetzer, of the Maine Medi< School, Brunswick. Me., says:— “Medical science has produced no other dyne expectorant eo good as Ayer’s Che Pectoral. It is invaluable for diseases o; ,.o throat and lungs.” The same opinion is expressed by the well-known Pr. L. J. Addison, of Chicago, III., who says :— “I have never found, in thirty-five years of continuous study and practice of medicine, any preparation of so great value as AVER’S Cherry Pectoral, for treatment of diseases of the throat and lungs. It not only breaks up colds and cures severe coughs, but is more effective than anythimr else in relieving even the most serious bronchial and pulmonary affections.” AYER’S Cherry Pectoral Is not a new claimant for popular oonti dence, hut a medicine which Is to-day saving the lives of the third generation who have come into being since it was fir<t offered to the public. There is not a household in which this invaluable remedy has once been in troduced where its use has ever been abandoned, and there is not a iierson WbO has ever given it a proper trial for any throat or lung disease suscep tible of cure, who has not been made well bv it. AYER’S CHERRY PECTORAL has, in numberless instances, cured obstinate eases of chronic Bronchitis, Larnygitls, and even acute Pneumonia, and has saved many patients in the earlier stages of Pulmonary Consumption. It is s medicine thut only requires to be taken in small doses, is pleasant to the taste, and is needed in every house where there are children, as there is nothing so good as AYER’S CHERRY PECTORAL for treat ment of Croup and Whooping Cough. These are all plain facts, which can bo verified bv anybody, and should be re membered by everybody. Ayer’s Cherry Pectoral PREPARED BY Dr J. C. Ayer & Co„ Lowell, Mass. Sold by all druggists.
