the question of the taking of newspa
pers by the members and the repeal of
the law aforesaid camo up, a studied
effort on the part of certain newspa
pers of the State, and especially of cer
tain correspondents from the capitol,
has been made to attack the honesty of
purpose of those members opposed to
these measures. Fair, legitimate criti
cism of the course of these gentlemen
by arguing the merits of the question,
would, of course, have been very prop
er but on ttlte contrary not one jour
nal that we have noticed nor one cor
respondent who has opposed the ac
tion of the majority of the House upon
these questions, has ever given the facts
and figures reported by the Ways and
Means Committee as to the expendi
tures necessary in the publication
the laws and the taking of newspapers.
The fact is if the laws are to be pub
lished, including the code under the
present regulations, the cost would be
•ery large indeed, and as we have be
fore said, we not only think the Legis
lature justiciable in cutting dowu these
^expenses, but further, that it is imper
atively deminded of our Legislators.
We have advocated and maintain with
.stronger assurance, that we are right, a?
more and more light is thrown upon
the matter, that the cutting off of news
paper subscription at the expense o'
the State is right, and that while we
would not repeal in toto Chap. 118, yet
for reasons we have frequently pub
lished we would have greatly reduced
the number of laws published, confin

teresting to the general public, and so
largely reducing the expenditure. lit

to say, they have been most unmerci
fully and uiigentlemanly traduced

It would perhaps be unfair to apply
the crucial test of impartial criticism to
the above. Emanating, as it does,from
the ftirnace of the heart, rather than the
refrigerator of the intellect, it ought to
be exempt from the critic's aqua fortis.
Else we might inquire how a man,
even of Mr. Scliurrs protean capaci
ties, can be a sword and a foil, a pion
ard and a rapier, not to mention a
shield and a spear, all at once also,
whether it.can be considered the fair
thing in chivalry to bring all those
weapons to bear at one ana the same
time upon an "oppressor" who is
"prostrate and weaponless." Likewise,
whether it is accoraing to the code to
cleft" the "brain of his false purpose."
But waiving all these objections to
minor detail, It yet wounds ohr pride
to see a Missouri Senator immortalized
in verse so far away from 4ome. The
cultivation of home industry being one
of the cardinal points of our political
faith, we referred the product of Mr,
Stilison's muse to the poet ofthe Dem
ocrat office, with instructions to evolve
something ofthe kind for our columns,

a man of family, and a spendthrift to
the mil extent of his means, he was
impelled to do his best, and soou re

From tha Dally of the «h.
It Is the custom of National
ventions to appoint one delegate from
each State to compose the National
Committee whose principal duty it is
to fix the time and place, and issue the
call for the next National Convention.
At the Chicago Convention, which
nominated Grant, Horace Greeley was
appointed on our Committee for the
State of New York, because he was
then supposed to be a zealous Repub
lican, and becaose Ids hearty denuncia
tions of the then recent political treach
ery of S. P. Chase, seemed to preclude
the probability of any irfimedlate or
flagrant infidelity on the part of the
erratic Tribune philosopher.
The Republican masses were there
fore astonished to find his name miss
ing, and New York unrepresented in
the recent call. The report that he
had written to Hon. Wm. E. Chandler,
Secretary of the Committee, positively
refusing to have his name appended to
the call, seemed to be almost incredi
ble, and yet the demand for that letter
has been so pressing, that Greeley has
been finally smoked out of his hole,
and publishes the following which ap
peared in our last night's dispatches:
"Friend Chandler, please not to at
tach my name to a call for a National
Convention. I stayed away from vour
meeting on purposa to keep a position
of independence. If we have trnit

White Home, all right, but I am not

Horace Greeley is not consistent in
anything except in his inconsistency.
Having done more than any other
northern man to bring about the "irre

was upon us, showed the white feath

"erring sisters to depart in peace," thus

Mr. Lincoln's administration* w^th the
present in Grant's, he joined the Wade
Davis conspiracy, and gave all his in
fluence to the Fremont and Cochrane
abortion of Cleveland, and only gave
Lincoln, finally, a lame and impotent
support In the darkest days of the
war, he became demoralized, and
hastened to Canada, and through that
infamous uninspired idiot, "Colorado
Jewett," made a futilo attempt to sur
render practically the boys in blue and
the loyal cause, to Jefferson Davis.
Finaity, when the rebellion was
crushed, in spite of him, and the influ
ence of his paper, he was the first man
Ja hail 1«4T M»4 jUe^ily
tfler made a pilgrimage to Texas, and
elsewhere in the South, in which he
exhausted himself in gloryfying the
chivalry, and denouncing the northern
men as "carpet-baggers."
He is now a candidate for the Presi
dency, and has refused to sign the call,
because be knew that the Convention
would not for a moment entertain his
own candidacy, and like Sumner,
Trumbull, Chase, Doolittle, Schurz &
Co., proposes to run- down and break
to pieces a party which be cannot make
subservient any longer to his own car
prices and selfish ambition.
And now let us have the issue
fought out. The Republican party
in 1S72 is as nearly unanimous for
Grant, as it was in 18C4 for Lincoln.—
The'defection against Grant now is no
greater than it was then against Lin
coln, but if this, the latest spawn of
conspirators and soreheads are superior
to the great mass of the Republican
party, and can succeed in prostituting
it to their purposes, it cannot fail to
result in anything short of the defeat
ofthe great an.1 glorious Republican
party which has done so much for the
country, and it will be the verdict of
the impartial historian that if it has not
innate strength and incorruptibility
enough to withstand these tricky ma
chinations of unscrupulous politicians,
ihat then the time has come for it to
die and be buried.
But that time has not struck. The
people understand Greeley and his
•crowd. They know that Grant saved
the country, and that he has given
them an incomparable administration,
considering all the embarrassing cir
cumstances, and these fellows who
have got the presidential maggot in
their heads, which has run away with
their brains, had better get into the
presidential wagon, unless they want
to be ruu over and grouud to powder.

Htlney, colored member of Con
grass from South Carolina, iriade an
able speech on the 5th instant, of which
the Chicago Tribune't special says:
Rainey (colored), from South Caro
lina, made a telling speech to-day, in
reply to Cox, and Duke of Virginia,
on the debate over the appropriation
to meet the expenses of the Ku-Klux
trials. Few. speeches of the session
have attracted more general attention.
It was strong and full of pointy which
the House appreciated.
Mr. Cox (Democrat) of New York,
replied to Mr. Rainey, and denied that
he had said anything to warrant the
attack made ou him by the latter in
the speech which had been applauded,
bnt in which he (Cox) thovght there
was nothing to call for such a demon
stration, except on the principle that a
work of art was praised, not because
of its merit, bnt becanse it was painted
with toes. [Laughter.] He claimed
that he had done his share in elevat
ing the position of the colored race.
Mr. Dawes (Republican) asked Mr.
Cox to state whether he had voted for
the emancipation of slaves in the Dis
tricfof Columbia or to give them a
citizenship, or for the Thirteenth Con
stitutional Amendment y
Mr. Cox said he never told a thing
on compulsion. [Laughter.]
Mr. Dawes said he would read from
the GRobe the name of the gentleman

Mr. Cox said he had intended to
vote for a Constitutional Amendment,
and had promised Mr. Lincoln to do
so if he would send to the Confeder

them to come back to the Union with

"Secretary Boutwell appeared to-day

"The special Senate Committee, ap
pointed to investigate the sale of arms
to France, met to-aay and elected Sen
ator Hamlin as chairman. They then
decided to summon Secretary Belknap,
Gen. Dyer, chief of orduauce, and Sen
ators Sumner and Schurz to appear
and testify. They desire to learn from
Mr. Sumner the name of his informant
regarding the tnuiaaction. As it was
communicated in confidence, the old
question will arise as to whether a
committee can compel such a disclos
ure, though possibly Mr. Sumner has
permission to furnish the name.
"Gen. Babcock, of the President's
staff, testified to-day before the re

of any interest of himself iu the gener

custom-house, or that he knew that
Leet, who had lived with him at the
time, had any such interest until the
fact was maue public by official inve^
tigation, though he admitted a knowl
edge of the letter of introduction
which the President gave Leet to Col
lector Grinnell: and yet he declares he
had no idea for what special purpose
Leet obtained the letter.
The Dubuque Times is responsible
for saying, editorially, that the most
strenuous and persistent efforts were
made to keep both Sumner and Schurz
off of the Committee of investigation
into the sale of arms to the French,—
This is an nnpardonably mistaken
statement Mr. StHnner as the mover
of the resolution asking for investiga
tion was expected, of course, to be put
upon that Committee, when, to the
surprise of everybody, he plead want
of health, on account of injuries receiv
ed sixteen years ago, and declined to
act on the Committee. In his place
was put Gen. Logan, who is known to
be oue of those hostile to the re-nomi
nation of Grant, and a gentleman cer
tainly of eminent ability. In this ac
tion did not the Senate yield every
thing to the disorganizes which the
mfwmn W\».
Scharz, a republican, is not the man
who introduced this resolution, but is
the man who announced long ago that
he would uot support Grant though
nominated by the party—that is, he oc
cupies the reprehensible position of re
fusing to be bound by the fairly express
ed will of his partisan friends, and so
the majority ofthe republican Senators
felt under no obligation to regard him
in the matter.- But we find upon the
examination of the Secretary of War,
Mr. Schurz on invitation was present

Contrary to the views of the Tim**,
we think every reasonable considera

On the Journal being
read tbis morning, the Speaker au
nounced that the hour had arrived for
the consideration of special order in
relatiou to the taxation of railroads.
Mr. Caldwell as Chairman of the
Committee on railways, said that the
Committee had not bad time to pre
pare a bill, and asked an extension of
time, which was granted, until Fri
A few petitions and remonstrances
were presented and referred to the
proper Conynittees.
A resolution was offered to the ef
fect, that from and after Monday next
all speeches in debate be limited to five
minutes, unless by permission of the
Mr Carver moved to amend by strik
ing out "five," and inserting "ten."
Amendment was lost and the original
resolutiowindeflnitelv postponed.
Several bills were introduced, com
mencing at H. F. 296, and running up
to 300, among which was one for an
Act td permit water power improve
ments oue, permitting suits to be
brought against the State due, pro
viding for the payment of managers
and officers of state Institutions, and
others of minor importance.
A resolution was offered to the ef
fect "that the House meet at 9
A. M.
and hold two sessions daily."
Mr. Caldwell hoped the resolution
would not preVail, for the reason that
Committees would have no time to do
their work. On the, question being
put the second time by the Speaker,
the yeAs and navs were called for, the
vote standing 61 for ibt adoption and
35 against wnich being announced, the
scene changed.
Kasson asked leave to give a person
al explanation, which was granted,
when with a copy of "Webster's Un
abridged" and a copy of Sunday morn
ing's Register, he began to explain to
the House the meaning of "barnacle."
He endeavored to explain away the
fact that he made use of such an in
sinuation towards the press, and styled
the article in the Register an untruth.
Space will not permit to give the re
marks of each in full, so I will confine
myself to a very brief synopsis.
After Kassou, came Irish. He had
no desire to stand between the mem
ber from Polk and his friends the edi

the fact He (Pratt) was not in favor
of silensing the press, and looked up

To be brief, there was a regular up
roar, and the bitter denunciations that
were hurled against the Dubuque Her
ald audits correspondent, were rather
-startling, iu short, the greatest excite
ment prevailed.
It even went so far that Campbell
of Jefferson, told Mr. Pratt in reply
to a quegtiou from the latter, that they
could settle that matter outside, but

code of chivalry or according to the

discussed, after which it was ordered

In the House, Campbell, of Jeffer
son, called up a motion he made some
time, ago iu relation to reconsidering
the vote by which the questiou of
amending the constitution by striking
out the word "male," was submitted
to 'he people. The motion prevailed,
the vole was reconsidered aud "woman
suffrage" is again on file.
We had a very nice session in the
House this forenoon, and after all the
firing of yesterday, 1 did not observe
that any person was hurt.
Tlie tiie.ial number of reporters were
at their desks, the members all in their
seats excepting John P., who is down
attending tlie funeral of his friends at

contest of last Monday.
Whether the spirit of wrath and in
dignation exhausted itself in the terri
ble onslaught of yesterday, or whether
it only slmnbereth, I know not but
certain it is, the seasien this forenoon
passed peaceably, harmoniously and
good humoredly.
