In reference to Mr. Kasson'suse of the
word "Barnacle*" in the course of some
remarks he made upon the newspaper
question, we also do not feel capable
of drawing the nice distinction which
•eems necessary at this distance from
tte sgene of action, to determine accu
rately the point at iwue. We wish,
howerer, to give the honorable gentle
man from Polk connty the benefit of
Informing our readers that his expla
nation of his use of the word disarms
it of all its offensive significance. Gen
erally we wish to say that evec since
the question of the taking of newspa
pers by the members and the repeal of
the law aforesaid came up, a studied
effort on the part of certain newspa
pers of the State, and especially of cer
tain correspondents from the capitol,
ha* been made to attack the honesty of
purpose of those members opposed to
those 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 tb# 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 ol
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
jlature jnstifiiable in cutting down these
expenses, but further, that it is imper
atively demanded 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 wc
would not repeal in toto Chip. 118, yet
for reasons we have frequently pub
lished we would have greatly reduced
the number of laws published, confin
ing the list to those affecting and in
teresting to the general public, and so
largely reducing the expenditure. In
respect only to the total repeal
Chap. 118 did we differ with the gen
tleman who advocated the two meas
ures named. However, this difference
between us did not lead us to malign
--i and abuse these gentlemen, as we regret
to say, they have been most unmerci
fully and uugentlcmanly traduced
through the columns of many newspa
pers of the Stale.
We now hope that the action of the
Legislature upon the subject of pub
lishing the laws in newspapers, will
finally be adjusted upon plan de
vised to carry out the view we have
We must say, however, notwith
standing it may be that some gentle
men upon the floor of the House have,
in the excitement of the moment,stung
by harsh and unjust words from the
press, made use of lauguage it were
better they had not spoken yet these
men are entitled to the respect and
gratitude of the people of the State for
the bold and determined stand they
have taken upon these expenditures,
though in our opinion they partially
erred. We honor them for their inde
pendence, and we hope they niav suc
ceed upon the busis of the amendment
we have proposed.

"We have neglected noticing these

It would perhaps be unfair to apply
the' crucial test of impartial criticism to
the above. Emanating, us it does,from
the furnace of the heart, rather than the
refrigerator of the intellect, it ought to
be exempt from the critic's aqua forti*.
Else we might inquire how a man,

whether it.can be considered the Tair
thing in chivalry to bring all those
weapons to bear at one and the same

"prostrate and weaponless." Likewise,
whether it is accoraing to the code to

a man of ftimily, nnd a spendthrift to

From the Dally of the Mb.
It is the custom of National Con
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 xealons Repub
lican, and because his hearty denuncia
tions of the then recent political treach
ery of S. P. Chase, seemed to preclude
the probability of any' immediate or
flagrant infidelity on the part of the
erratic Trtinme 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. Win. 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 rour
meeting on purpose to keep a position
of independence. If we nave trast
worthy assurances of reform from the
White House, all right, but I am not
inclined to help our Leetsand Stock
ings to another half million of plun
der. Yours,
Horace Greeley is not consistent in
anything except in bis inconsistency.
Having done more than any other
northern man to bring about the "im
pressible conflict," he, when that conflict
was upon us, showed the white feath
er, and plead in his paper to allow the
"erring sisters to depart in peace," thus
forever consigning the negro to hope
less shivery. In the same period in
Mr. Lincoln's administration with tin
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, Anally, 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 futile attempt to sur
render practically the boys in bine and
the loyal cause, to Jefferson Davis.
Finally, when the rebellion was
crushed, in spite of him, and the influ
ence of his paper, he was the first man
Hi*il JUT +1i —'a,
tfter 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 "carpetbaggers."
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 bis
owu candidacy, and like Sumner,
Trumbull, Chase, Doolittle, Schurz &
Co., proposes to run down and break
to pieces a party which he cannot make
subservient any longer to his own ca
prices and selfish ambition.
And now let us have the
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
of the great an 1 glorious Republican
party which has done so much for the
country, audit 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,
that 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, aud 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 run over and ground to powder.
Another dead-beat Republican has
declared against Grant. This time it
is the infamous Warmouth, who has in
augurated Tophet in Louisiana. He
says,"I inteud to support the nominees
oftlie Cincinnati Convention,ifGrantis
nominated at Philadelphia. I am
unqualifiedly aud determinedly op
posed to General Grant's election as I
President of the United 8tates."
'..'his fellow was dismissed from Wil
liamson's brigade from the Lieutenant
Colonelcy of a Missouri regiment and
never was anything bat an abnormal

OimiMRt: I am not in the habit
nor am I qualified, to address a public
meeting, hut I have ideas and views of
some of the political questions of the
day. I would not speak of them, but
you forcc me to. As some of you have
said, it is high time that we were up
and doing. It is high time that the
colored people were looking to their
interests. I do not see things exactly
as you do. You do not know a color
ed man when you see him, except you
chance to run upon him just before an
election. Then you notice him, and
even would like to have him make a
speech at your gathering. After de
claring in the great Declaration that
all meu are equal, why did you oppose
making black men your equals at the
polls for almost ninety years?and then
only admitted us because you were
forced to Gentlemen, I am a Repub

sum at him, you are terribly mistaken.

Rliney, colored member of Con
gress from South Carolina, made an
able speech on the 5th instant, of which
the Chicago Tribune's 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 points, 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,
but in which he (Cox) thought 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 because it was painted
with toes. [Lattghter.] He claimed
that he bad done his share in elevat
ing the position of the colored race.

lican ticket"
After this speech some of the Demo
crats yelled, "Take him out!" "Shut

The Washington special to the Chi-

"Secretary Boutwell appeared to-day

penditufes in the War Department,
and testified as to the amounts re
ceived ink the treasury for the fiscal
year ending June 30th, 187tJ^ from the
sales of anus and,ordnance stores. He
gave the atuounf. at #8,280,003. The

not carried iuto the treasury during

since then, eveu in excess of the sum
returned but it.would be necessary
to analyze the various amounts care
fully to trace up the figures and to sep

the sales in the last fiscal year from
those paid in on account of subsequent
"The special Senate Committee, ap
pointed to investigate the sale of arms
to France, met to-ony and elected Sen
ator Hamlin as chairman. They then
decided to summon Secretary Belknap,
Gen. Dyer, chief of ordnance, and Sen
ators Sumner and Schurz to appear
and testify. They desire to learn from
Mr. Sumner the nux of his informant
regarding the transaction. 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
trenchment committee a general denial
of any interest of himself in the gener
al-order business of the New York
custom-house, or that he knew that
Leet who had lived with him at the
time, had anv such interest until the
fact was made nubile by official iuvefr
ti gat ion, thongn 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, tliat 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 unpardonably mistaken
statement Mr. Sumner as the mover
of the resolution saving £wr.inT^liga
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 one 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
Schurz, a republican, is not the man
who introduced this resolution, but is
the man who announced long ago that
be would not 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 of the 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
aud putting questions to the Secretary.
Contrary to the views of the Times,
we think every reasonable considera
tion has been paid to the Sumner
Schurz movement in this carpuig at
the administration.

Eos. COURIER: On the Journal being
read this morning, the Speaker au
nonnced that the hour had arrived for
the consideration of special order in
relation 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 aud 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
resol utiowindefinitel v postponed.
Several bills were Introduced, com
mencing at H. F. 296, and mnuing up
to 3UB, among which was one for sn
Act to permit water power improve
ments one, itarmitung suits to be
brought against the State one, pro
viding for the payment of managers
and officers of State Institutions, aud
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
wonM 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 SpeiCker,
the ye4s and navs were called for, the
vote standing 61 for its adoption and
35 against which being announced, the
scene changed.
Kasson asked leave to give a person
al expfanation, 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 ase of such an in
sinuation towards the press, and styled
the article in the Register sn untruth.
Space will not permit to give the re
mariu of each in foil, so I will confine
myself to a very brief synopsis.
After Kasson, came Irish. He had
no desire to stand between the mem
ber from Polk and his friends the edi

Now comes the member from Wap

To be brief, there was a regular up
roar, and the bitter denunciations that

It even went so Ikr that Campbell

In the House. Campbell, of Jeffer

time ago in relation to reconsidering
the vote by which the question of
amending tbe constitution by striking
out the word "male," was submitted
to 'he people. The motion prevailed,
the vote 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 UMtal number of reporters were
at their desks, the members all in their
seats excepting Joliu P., who is down

Whether the spirit of wrath aud in
