[From Our Kegular Correspondent]
Wasbixotok, Dec. 4 91,1653.
adjournment of congress—bevenub bill.
Congress will adjourn this week for the
holidays, but with some most important busi
ness unacted upon, and which colls for imme
diate legislation. The most important is the
Bcvcnue Law. Under the present law the
Government is losing over a million of dol
lars a day. It has foiled to meet the demands
cf the Treasury,and the manufacturers, know
ing that it must be very materially amended,
arc running their establishments night and
day all over the country, and thus saving mil
lions of dollars to themselves, all of which
is lost to tbe Treasury. The immense pro
jected increase in the duties on spirits and
tobacco, of which I notified you some weeks
since, is being cottca ready for—that is, the
manufacturing interest is. making stock and
paying duty onit attbepresentrates. Under
the present law the distillers all said they
would be ruined, hntthe contrary is the fact.
The imposition of duties has in. reality en
riched them all, or at least all those who
v ere able to command capital. Besides tbe
continued advance in prices has materially
assisted them, and in some cases made for
tunes for those who had previously been in
debt. Some parlies well posted In the spirit,
tobacco and ale trades, inform me that the
Treasury is losing a million dollars a day every
day it docs not act upon the new scale of
duties.
THE HALS AND JOHNSON AFFAIR.
The ventilation the New York Tribune has
given to John P. Hale and Rcverdy Johnson’s
acting oe attorneys In cases against tbe Gov
ernment, will. I trust, have.a wholesome ef
fect.: Still it is palnftu to sec Senators of the
United States so ignorant of the first princi
ples of right and wrong, as those gentlemen
have apparently shown themselves to be. I
charitably call it ignorance; but will the peo
ple believe that these gentlemen thought they
could represent the interests of the Govern
ment and the opposing interests of private
citizens, at one and the same time ? Even in
European governments no government con
tractor con represent the people in Parlia
ment. Is the office of United States Senator
•to be prostituted to that of a claim agency ?
Even the clerks in the Pensionand other offi
ces are not allowed to take compensation in
caecs where the law Is perfectly clear. Hoir
can a Senator be expected to act fairly in a
case which may come before him finally
for adjudication? Mr. Hale got under a
cloud once before, in the case of the ColUns
or some other steamship line,and the people,
in their great regard for the glorions princi
ples for which he had so long and so ably
battled, and in their love and. charity over
looked his acts. IVc wonld think it would
havcbccn a lesson to be remembered and the
act he had done an evil to be avoided. It is
painful to be obliged to refer to these devia
tions from the path of rectitude on the part
■of our great men, but the duty of a corres
pondent to tbe public compels him to refer
to them; and more in sorrow than in anger
do Ido so upon this occasion.
SAULSDDBT AND BAYARD.
The two Senators from Delaware, on Satr
urday. made on exhibition of what to a npirn
and dispassionate looker on appears to be Ut
ile short of disloyalty. The question comes
up again. It appears that Mr. Saulsbuiyand
his colleague object to the latter’s taking the
oath of allegiance prescribed by the Senate at
its last session. What an example to rebels
who arc culled upon to lay down their arms
and swear allegiance to the Govern
ment? What a commentary on the
late Message and Proclamation of the
President? In fact, what a response the ac
tion of these men is to this -magnanimous
offer of Mr. Lincoln. These gentlemen set a
bad example, and should be made to feel that
they do.' Let the Senate respect its own
rules and acts, and enforce them. Begin
with the men in high places, and enforce the
law In their case,"or it cannot be enforced
in tbe cases of the ignorant or illiterate, who
have not the respoosibUlties of learned Sen
ators. If there is any hesitation or letting
down in high quarters in this thing, the
whole matter of the proclamation and am
nesty becomes a force.
THE EIGHTH CAVALRT —HXIN OIS SOLDIERS IN
HOSPITALS,
Gen. Tarnsworth has procured leave for
this fine body of men, under command of
Col. Gamble, to return to Illinois so soon as
three-fourths of them express their willing
ness to he mustered into the service again.
This is a splendid regiment, and has won
more laurels on the Potomac than any other.
It la the pride, of every Illinoisan, both at
home and abroad. *
The General lias also procured permission
of the Secretary of War for all the Union sol
diers in hospitals in this city, capable of be
ing removed, to return home. The greater
number belongs to the Sth Illinois.
PRIZE MOXEY.
The amount of prize money received by
some of the officers and soldiers ofour block
ading fleet is enormous. In the case of the
Memphis, captured by the Magnolia some
time since, $050,000 was the amont for 'which
the vessel and canro sold. Of this the C-ip
tain received $38,000; some of the petty of
ficers three to four thousand dollars each;
firemen twelve to thirteen hundred dollars,
and sailors eleven hundred dollars each.
BOSSES FOB GOVEHJTHEXT.
The enormous number of four hundred thou
sand horses is usedup by the Government In a
single year. While In active service the caval
ry is remounted about every two months. In
some of the raids, and the expeditions in
Eursuit of Stum’s cavalry, ninety miles have
een ridden in twenty-four hours. The re
sult is that every horse comes back from
such work completely used up. There are
now over 14,000 horses in the Immense bar
racks near this city, and from these barracks
all the cavalry'regiments in the Potomac ar
my receive-fresh horses.
And while on this subject,! might add that a
dispute having arisen between Secretary Stan
ton and a number of horse contractors in Il
linois, Indiana, lowa, &c.. the Secretary has
taken their cases under advisement 1 learn
it will- take many months to decide the cases.
In the meantime, the contractors who had
expected to make their fortunes are suffering
for means to meet their engagements to
honkers and others from whom they had
borrowed. Nearly a million of dollars is re
ported to be tied up in these contracts.
MISSOURI MATTERS.
Ithiuklmaywrite that Missouri matters
are coming to a focus. The President has
General Schofield hcre,as I wrote yon, and is
giving the management of affairs in that Slate
a thorough overhauling. Last evening he
bad a protracted interview with Senators
Brown and Henderson, at which the condi
tion of ofiairs in the State, present and pros
pective, was discussed in all its bearings.
COL. XJTTIXnr.LD—NEGRO TROOPS.
I had the pleasure of meeting Cok Little
field, of tbe 4lh South Carolina volunteers,
and in command of the negro brigade at Folly
Island,'in the War Department to-day. Cok
L. is a resident of Jenseyviilc, Illinois, and,
by tbe bye, the Copperheads of that'part of
the State hud him fined for bringing homo a
negro servant with him from the war. Gov.
Tates will, no doubt, quietly pardon the of
fender. He speaks in tbe highest terms of
the negro troops; of their efficiency, docility,
bearing, and their aptitude for the profession
of arms generally. The Colonel is a fine look
ing specimen of a Sucker, and his whole
heart and soul are in tbe war, and especially
the employment of negro troops os an efll
cleut means of c&rzylugTt on.

THE TRIAL OF HON. J. It.
GIkODGS.
PXotlou to Quash Proceedings-Argo-
ment of Counsel.
[Special Dispatch to the Toronto Leader.)
iIOKTEEAL, Doc. IS, 1363.
The Giddlngs case was heard to-day on
motion to qnash the capla* and relieve Ills
hail. The argument of his counsel was that
it was illegal to Usuc a capias on Sunday, es
pecially under circumstances not warranting
the-issne on that day; second, that a capias
could not issue for unliquidated damages
which arose from a personal tort; third, that
the affidavits did not contain sufficient de
scription of the quality assumed by the
plaintiff, who did not show whether he was
a partv to the suit or not; that the grounds
of belief of the deponent Rcdpath, requiring
to he set forth clearly in detail by the posi
tive statute law of the land, unless they are
sufficient to justify the issue of the writ
ought to be set aside on a motion to quash.
It was held by the counsel for Mr. Glddlngs
that no cajiias can issue for unliquidated dam
ages. It was held by the counsel for Bed
path that it was not necessary that the writ
should depend on unliquidated damages.
The motion to quash the writ and the mo
tion for security for costs was taken sn ddibre
by Judge Smith.
Another Female Soldier*
Lizzie Compton, a bright young lady of
sixteen, arrived in the city yesterday from
Bnrdstown, where she had been encamped
with her regiment, the UIU Kentucky caval
ry. of which she has been a member for sev
eral months past. Her history, daring the
past eighteen months, is strange and-roman
tic, She has served In seven different regi
ments, and participated in several battles.
At Frederickebmg she was seriously wound
ed, but recovered, and followed the fortunes
of war, which cast-hcr from the Army of the
Potomac to the Army of the Cumberland.
She fought in tho battle of Green Blrcr
Bridge, ou the Fonrlh of July last, and re
ceived a wound which dlsablcd’hcrfor a short
time. She has been discovered and mustered
out of flic service seven or eight limes, but
immediately re-enlisted in another regiment.
She states that her homo is in London, Can
ada West, and that her parents are now liv
ing in that place. This young clrl has served
a term of eighteen xnonths-in the army, and,
were it not flint she dreads the annoyance of
being detected and mustered out, she would
enter the service again.
Bbe was sent to this city by the officer in
-command at Bardstownto be again mustered
out, and is now at Barrack No. 1, awaiting
orders. —LwiisviUc Jonmal.
ECKITOES BEFORE CHiSLESTOS
Eoport of the Eesolt of the Fire by
the Monitor Captains,
fEeMiog to (he Monitor,attack on Charles
ton, in April last, under Admiral Dupont:]
| [Cflpt, Drayton, of the Passaic;
At the fourth shot from a 11-lnch gun,l was
struck In quick succession in the lower part
of tie turret by two heavy shots,'* which
bulged in its plates and beams, and forcing
together the rails on which the 11-inch car
riage worked, rendering it wholly useless
for the remainder of the action—several
hours being' necessary to put it in work
ing order. Soon after It was discovered that
there was something the matter with
the turret itself, which could not
bo moved, and on examination it was found
that a pnrt of the brass ring underneath It
had broken off, and being forced in board,
Lad lammed; on clearing this, the turret
could egoin be moved; bat for some time
irregularly. A little after a very heavy rifle
shot struck the upper edge cf the turret,
broke all of its eleven plates, and then glanc
ing upward took the pilot-house; yet with
such force as to make an indention of two
and a half inches, extending nearly the whole
length of the shot The blow was so severe
as to considerably mash .in the pilot-house,
bend it over, open the plates and squeeze out
the top, so that on one side it was lifted up
three inches above the top on which it rested,
exposing the inside of the pilot-house, and
rendering it likely that the next shot would
lake off the top itself, entirely.
Captain Eodgcre, of the Wcehawkcn:
Two or three heavy shot struck the side
armor near the same place. They have so
broken the iron that it only remains in splin
tered fragments upon that spot; much of it
can be picked off by the hand, and the wood
is exposed.
The deck was pierced so as to make a hole,
through which water ran into the vessel;
hut it was not large. Thirty-six bolts wore
broken in the turret, and a good many in the
fulot-liouse; hut as these ore. concealed by an
ron lining, 1 have no means of knowing
how many.
At one time the turret revolved with diffl
culiy in consequence of a shot upon.its junc
tion with the pilot house, but it worked
well again after a few turns had been mode
with higher steam. ' •*
Captain Worden, of the Montank:
I desire to say that I experienced serious
embarrassment in maneuvering my vessel in
the narrow and uncertain channel, with the
limited means of observation afforded from
the pilot bouse, under the rapid and concen
trated tiro from the forts, the vessels of the
fleet close around me, and neither compass
nor buoys to guide me. After testing the
weight of the enemy’s fire, and observing
the obstructions, I am led to believe that
Charleston can not be taken by the naval
force now present, and that had the attacks
been continued, It could not have failed to re
sult in disatcr.
Commander Ammen. of thcPatapsco:
Forty-seven projectiles of tho enemy struck
the vessel. No (Limagc was done which dis
abled her, although injuries were received,
jwhicli, multiplied, would do bo. Forty
bolts of the smoke stack were broken, and a
chain around it will be necessary to ltd con
tinued security.
I am indebted to Acting Master Vaughan,
transferred temporarily to this vessel, for
valuable aid in avoiding collisions, os it is
ont of the question for one person to observe
properly from the various light holes. I
think n want of vision one of the moat seri
ous defects of ibis class,making it impossible
to fight them advantageously, to avoid dan
gers, or to make a satisfactory reconnois
60UCC.
Another question of great Importance os
relates to their efficient employment is the
character of the battery. If it is proposed to
butter down forts with a fiftccu-iach gun,
then it Is quite plain that we have to come
within distances at which heavy ordnance, if
employed in heavy batteries against us can
not fail in the end to injure or perhaps dis
able ns.
Commander Bogere, of the Catskill:
I was surprised to find, even with this se
vere lire, that these vessels could be so much
injured In so short a time, two or three having
passed me during the action, to ‘which some
disaster had happened. This vessel was
struck some twenty times, but without any
serious injury, except one shot upon the for
ward part ot the deck, which broke both
plates, the dcck-plankiug. and drove down
the Iron stanchion sustaining the beam about
one inch, causing the deck to leak.
Commander Fairfax of the Nantucket:.
. Our fire was very slow, necessarily, nnd not
half so observable upon tbo walls of the forts
as the rain of their rifle shot and heavy shell
was upon this vessel. After the third shot
from the 15-inch gun, the port stopper be
came jammed, several shot striking very near
the port and driving in the plating; it was
not need again.
As the fleet withdrew, the forts materially
slackened their Arc, evidently not wishing to
expend their ammunition without some re
sult, Certainly their firing was excellent
throughout; fortunately it was directed to
some half-dozen iron-clads at a time. The
effect of their fire upon the Keokuk, together
with that of their heavy rifle-shot upon the
monitors, Is sufficient proof that any one
vessel could not have long withstood the con
centrated fire of the enemy’s batteries. The
obstructions being placed at a concentrated
point of fire bom the three forts, shows con
clusively that they must hare been of no
mean character. Our fire always drew down
upon ns four or fire heavy rifle, shots, aimed
at our ports. One m riile-sbot struck within
less than six inehcs'of the fifteen inch port;
several struck vcyy near. lam convinced
that, although this class of vessels can. stand
a heavy lire, yet the want of more guns will
render them comparatively harmless before
formidable earthworks and forts, I most say
that I am disappointed beyond measure at this
experiment ol monitors overcoming strong
forts. It was a fair trial.
Lieutenant Bcardalce. of the Nantucket:
One rifle shot struck on the lower comer of
the fifteen-inch port, denting the outer plate
about one and a hall Inches, and bulging the
whole thickness, so much as to prevent the,
port stopper from swinging. This shot was*
received afterthe third fire from the fifteen
inch, and disabled the gun for the rest of the
fight, we not being able to open the pork A
ten-inch shot struck directly opposite, and
near the top of the turret, starting a number
of bolts, and breaking the clamp ring inside.
During the action the turret became jammed.
Upon examination, we discovered six or se
ven bolt-heads and nuts that had fallen inside
and into the recces around the bottom of the
turret, rendering it necessary to key the tur
ret higher in order to clear them. Upon
attempting to revolve the turret again to-day.
found that another had fallen since the first
were removed. The pilot bouse was struck
once, a square hit, bnt doing no damage.
The side armor was struck nine times—once
below the water line. A number of the side
plates are started so much that another shot
In their vicinity would, in my opinion, knock
them oH One bolt was driven through the
iron and was buried in the oak. One of the
deck plates Is started from a blow on the side
armor. The smoke stack was riddled in the
upper sections, and received five shots in the
lower sections—one a solid ten inch, fell,
alter striking upon the deck and was secured.
The steam-whistle was cut off. The deck
plates were cut in twelve places. One shot
cut through the iron, and about two inches
into the beam, starting the plate, several
bolts, and the planking for some feet below.
This was directly • over the Andrews pump,
in the cngincHroom. The others are not seri
ous. The first discharge of the fifteen-inch
gun blew oil eight of the heads of the bolts
securing the muzzle box. The discharge of
the eleven-inch gun, or else the blow of a
shot on the turrckliftedonc of the perfora
ted plates on top. These plates are not prop
erly secured. The outer plate in the fifteen
inch port is started about one-fourth of an
inch; the next layer in a less degree. Two
of the “guides” to the eleven-inch carriage
were earned away, through the gun not being
properly compressed. Some oi the gear to
the engine-room bell was disabled at the first
fire, causing trouble and confusion in getting
orders promptly conveyed from pilot-house
to engine-room.
Captain Downs, of the 2s ah ant:
'We soon began to suffer from the effects of
the terrible and, I believe, almost unprece
dented fire to which we were exposed, and at
4:SO the turret refused to turn, having become
jammed from the effects of three blows from
heavy shot, two of them on the composition
ring about the base of the pilot-house (one of
these breaking off a piece of iron weighing
78 pounds from the interior, that assisted to
keep the house square on its bearings, throw
ing it with such violence to the other side of
the house, striking, bending and disarrang
ing steering gear in its course, that it bound
ed from the inside curtain and fell back into
the center of the house), and the other on
the outside of the turret, bulging It in and
driving off the inch apron bolted on
to the inside to keep in place the gun-rails,
and down the main trace of the turret. The
bolt-heads flying from the inside of the pilot
house at the same time struck down the
pilot, Hr. Sofield, twice struck and sense
lees—and the Quartermaster. Edward Cobb,
helmsman, fatally Injuring with fractured
skulk leaving me alone in tbe pilot-house,
the steering gear becoming at the some time
disarranged. We were within five hundred
yards or Fort Sumter, unmanageable, and
under the concentrated fire 1 tlilnk, one
hundred guns at short range, and the ob
structions close aboard. But fortunately we
got the "preventer steering gear in working
order in time to prevent disastrous results.
And getting my vessel once more under
command, X endeavored to renew the action,
but after repeated futile attempts to turn
the guns on the fort, I concluded to retire
for a time from close action and'endeavor to
repair damages.
wo rcceivedthc following injuries to the
vcfisd and fittings, besides those already en
nnmerated; the plate on side armor
broken badly in. several-places, and In one,
where struck by two shots in close proximi
ty, partly, stripped from the wood and the.
wood backing broken in, with edging of
deck i plates started up and rolled back in
places. On port quarter side, armor all in
dented, and started from side and extremity
of stem. The deck is struck twice damag
ingly-Kme shot near the propeller well, quite
shattering and tearing the plating in its pas
sage, ana starting up twenty-five bolts;
another starting plate and twenty holts'; and
slighter blows arc* numerous. In smoke
stack armor there ore three shot marks —one
that plcrcod tho armor, making a hole fifteen
inches long and nine inches broad, displacing
grating inside and breaking seven bolts. In
flic turret there aremarksof.nine shot; fifty:
sis of the bolts ore broken perceptibly -to ua,.
the bolt heads spine off inside of turret, and'
tho bolts starting almost their length outside,
some of them flying off completely and being
found at a considerable distance from the tur
ret on tho dock. . Doubtless many others are
broken that wc pannol detect, as by trying
them wc find others loosed. Ono shot struck
tho upper part of the turret,breaking through
every plate, parting some. of them In two,
three and four places. In the 'pilot-house
there were marks of sir shot, three of them
Xl-inch; twenty-one of the bolts were broken
perceptibly, and others evidently started.
The pistes are also much' started, and' the
pilot-house itself, I think much damaged and
Trucked; indeed, it is my opinion that four
more eneb shots as it has received would
have demolished it One shot at the base
broke every plate through, and evidently
nearly penetrated It ■ -

Who Killed the Congress ?—I, Bays
Lord Jobußussoll—ShoMect oftho
Beinoal.
Pahib, Tuesday, Dec. 1,1355.
. The famous Congress of Sovereigns is
and it was Lord John Russell that killed it
Or rather the Congress was always dead, aud
it was Lord John that buried it Not that
the.Engiiah Foreign Secretary discovereff any
new arguments against.the Congress or said
anything that was not known byalb the
world, but-becauso lie bad the courage to say
brutally on paper what the rest either shrank
from or covered up in such a froth of words
as to mystify the best inteutioued readers.
Thus Prince Gortschukoff accepts in a rtply
so smothered up with politeness, as to Isave
a doubt whether it is in fact an acceptation,
or only a high flown attempt .at irony. But
there la no humbug about Lord John, he
knew the thing was a Napoleonic swindle,
and he said so.
The first effect of this refusal at Paris had
.been to throw down the funds and revive the.
fright about, a war. France has been insulted
and France is a military power; therefore,
she must fight. That is the logic of the tiling.
But* France has no idea of fighting Russia
alone, and Austria will not engage -In "any
conflict which will weaken her hold on Yen- *
ice. Therefore, France willtry to keep friends,
with Russia and obtain from her by conces
sions, what will save her military honor, pud
the whole afialr will end with the mutual ex
clamation, l( -L'inirnfsor snoui P 1 Only
the Polish revolution will bo crushed out,
and the statu quo will be maintained through
out Europe till the revolutionary party and
Gariboidl decree otherwise. And this Will
not bo long, if the Spring opens with all hope
crushed out of any yielding on the part of the
continental monarchs.
Thorcplyof Lord John Russell has had this
farther effect in France, that the friends of
the present dynasty arc deeply vexed, and cry
out for the millionth time “Perfidious Al
bion!”. “Nationof unprincipled shopkeep
ers!” and so on—you know the song; while
. the enemies of Napoleon are naturally delight
ed at his defeat. * - *
But everybody says that since England de
feated the Congress, and Is at the samo tune
4ho leading liberal Government of
is her duty now to. find and support some
remedy for tbe alleviation of. the Buffeting
nationalities of the Continent Bat England
.will support nothing hut a peaceable renun
ciation by Russia and Austria of their rights
over Poland and Venetia, and a peaceable re
nunciation is scarcely to be hoped for. Wo
come back then Infalliby to this, that the
next thing to look for is a repetition of IS£B,
but on a much larger and surer basis. For
tunately ibis time there will be one Chief
whom all will obey, and the movements of
the revolution may thus be combined in such
a way os to strike more surely and fatally the
dcspbti#fowcrs that refuse to yield to justice
and reason.
A pamphlet which has just been published
here, entitled “ Napoleon 111, and tho Euro
pean Congress,” and which was gaining a
•wide influence by its supposed Imperial ori
gin, is disavowed this morning officially In
the ATonihur, and thus falls to tbc ground
powerless. Tbe pamphlet advocated war,
and was probably paid for out of tho treasu
ry of the Polish Committee—for that is tho
way all causes, good or bad, are backed up at
Paris.
Another Confederate cruiser, the Rappa
hannock, has escaped from an English port,
and come to a French port to take on board
her officers and crew. The papers publish ail
the details in regard to tbe movement of this
vessel that wc Cave been able to obtain In
France.
Tho Schleswig-Holstein Question*
Copenhagen, Saturday, Dec. B, 1863.
The following proclamation of King Chris
tian to the Holstcincrs has been published to
day: 4< The order of succession of the Dan
ish Monarchy was intended to bo a labor of
peace, undertaken by na without personal
ambition, in the hope of serving the country.
It bos been accepted as public European law,
because tbe integrity of the Danish mon
archy was recognized as being a necessity to
European peace. Opposition, under the
mask of founded hereditary claims has, how
ever, been raised against the measure, pur
posing the dismemberment of tho Danish
monarchy. This opposition has also gained
ground in Holstein, calling forth excitement
and doubt. Tbe maintenance of the mon
archy Is one of oar most important duties.
As a ruler, wc cannot suffer officials to foster
a position, and arc resolved to pnt down in
surrectionary movements with armed force.
The endeavor of many years to bring about
an understanding upon tbe constitutional re
lations of thq monarchy, has not been
attended with success. "While, however, we
intend to give to tbc territories belongingia
the Confederacy an independent position 'in'
tbc kingdom, which has already been accom
plished with the remaining portions of tho
monarchy, wc hope that when Holstein finds
herself contented in constitutional .freedom,
and the pretence for foreign Intervention is
thus removed, she will voluntarily
nearer connection with thercmalaaW of ffitj *
country.” •
A proclamation has also been issued tfy
the Xaueubergers, thanking them for not
having been led away from their duty us sub-,

French Tobacco in the city ofßiemnond.
The committees were most cordially and respect

[Respectfully submitted,

On motion of P. D. McKinney, Esq., the
following resolution was unanimously adopt
ed. viz:
Eeaolvedy That inasmuch as tho publication of
the order of the Federal Government of the Uni*
ted States, on Its face, seems intended to convey
the idea that the tobacco shipped by and for the
French Government, was bought and paid for
prior to the 4th oi March, 3Sol, and such not being
the case, all ox the tobacco having been boajht
since that time, that thefacta shall be made known
to the world by this publication, and that the
chairman of the meeting be requested to send by
the different steamers leaving the Confederate
States tor foreign ports, a copy of tho daily papers
containing tho above facts.
On motion. It wsa ordered that the proceedings

Flirht.
A meeting of thc.Hamn ton Branch Bible So
ciety was licit! at Hamilton, C. W., a fowdfrra
since, which resulted In a free fight at
close. ‘ Edward Jackson, Esq., thcTlcc Pres
ident, was nominated ns Chairman, which
was the signal for an uproar amongst a clique
who were determined he should not occupy
it Ec succeeded- in doing so, however, and
made a brief speech. Two of the members'
arose, each claiming the floor, when a dis
graceful'tumult arose, which continued in
such a manner that .the Chairman, declared
the meeting dissolved. TlioHamilioaSjkcta
r gives the daumcmatt as follows:
Notwiihstanding'tbe declaration of the dis
solution of the tuecUne, the crowd still lin
gered in the hall, ns if "'expecting spmoJiing
else to occur, and their expectations were
not long.ungratided. swaying to and fro
of a knot ofpersons in the centre of .the hall
attracted our attention, and on proceeding.
thither we found Hugh McMahon and a Air
King struggling for the possession of a wait
ing stick. The origin of the disturbance,
ucar-as "we could ascertain, was as follows:.
McMahon went up to Mr. James Walker,
who bad the books of the. Society under his
arm, and took hold of them. Mr. King went
in between them, and washed away McMahon,
Mr. Walker making his escape in the mean
time., McMahon seized hold'of King’s stick,
one or two others joined in, and soon there
was quite a disturbance, but it would doubt
less soon havc.boen quelled had it not been
for the introduction of- another element.
Some five or six Irishmen (and Roman Catho
lics, wc believe) armed with shiUclahs, dashed
into the crowd with wild whoopsnnd yells,
and laid about with their sticks in the most
promiscuous manner, the leader calling out,
“ clear the way before yon boys I” The scats
were scattered in all directions, and a scene
of "the wildest confusion ensued. After'a
time the gong of rowdies went out of the hall,
smashing at the scats with their bludgeons
and yelling like savages. The. excitement
continued for some time alter their disap
pearance; and it was not until the Superin
tendent prepared to tom out the gas that the
crowd was persuaded to leave the hall.

many facts in the condition of the southern
States encourage the hope'of the return of
the vast mrjo ity of Methodists of the South
the old crnirch —the church of Asbory aud
MoKcmlrce, from which many of them sepa
rated with the greatest reluctance. The
Methoclst Episcopal Church, South, is shiv
ered to atoms. It is doubtful .If its General
Conference will ever meet again; or if.it
shall meet, it will be shorn of its former pro
portions. The publiahicg house in»Nash
vilieis la the hands of the united States an
-tijoxities; its finances were impaired beyond
remedy before it was closed by military order.
The members of the Louisville Conference, at
their last session, avowed their loyalty to
the government of the Union, and by that
avowal severed themselves from the rebel
part of southern Methodism. The southern
Methodist Church, which was ons of the
cM£f moral supports of the rebellion, will
inevitably share its fortunes end go down
with it to a common rain.- As the rebel
statesmen have made slavery the corner-stone
of their Confederacy, •so has the southern
Methodist church placed under that corner
stone the New- Testament. It did its best to
give thesanction of religion to the political
measures which terminated in secession.
. Confusion of Names,.
[From the New York Tribune.]
Many sensible people are puzzled by bear
ing or reading that Mr, Smith, Mr. Brown,
or Mr. Jones has said or done something in
Congress, .which he could not believe said
Smith. Jones or Brown could do. He fills to
cbn&iacrthai there* maybe more than one
SmithT and that men of like name arc pot ne
cessarily oflike politics.^. For the benefit of
a large class, we volunteer the information
that: .... ...
■ ■ There are three Browns in the present Con
gress—-B. Grctz, of Missouri, In the Senate,
Wm. G., of "West Virginia, and James S., of
Wisconsin, In the House. Only the lost is a
Copperhead-.
• Of Chandlers,* there are two—Zachariah, ef
Michigan, in the ’ Senate; Lucias H., of old
Virginie, In the House; besides John W.
Chanlcr, ol New York city. (Lucius 11., by
the way, has not yet been admitted, bat, we
presume, will be). Oar Chunlcr is a bad egg,
Solitlcauy; while the one that halls from
Llehlgan is as good as can bo.
Of Clarks, thls.Congress rejoices in the pos
session of three—Daniel of New Hampshire,
in the Senate; Ambrose W. and Freeman,
both of New York, in the House. All three
arc sound. • ■ • • •
Of thc.widc-spread family of Davis, Garret
(Border State") represents Kentucky in the
Senate. _.whilo Henry 'Winter, of Maryland,
and of New York, are in the
House. If yoff near of anything said by a
Davis that «• loyal man should not say, you
will attribute it, of course, to Garrett.
Of Dixons, James (Senate) halls from Con
necticut, while Nathan F. represents Western
Rhode Island. Both good.
Of Hales,' John P. of Now Hampshire, is in
the Senate, James T., of Pennsylvania, in the
House. Both Union.
The name of Harris Is unusually well rep
resented-in this Congress—lra representing
New York in the Senate, while Benjamin G.
of Jfanland, and Charles M. of Illinois,have
feats In the House. If yon hear that “Mr.
Harris” has said anything loyal and patriotic,
on may safely credit it to Ira.
Of Hubbards, A. W. from lowa, John H.
from Connecticut, are both In the House, to
gether with Calvin T. Halbard ofNew York,
if rebellion or slavery derives any aid orcom
fort from anything a Hubbard or Halbard
says or docs, be sure it is some one not in
Congress.
Of Johnsons, : there aro Beverdy ofMary
hmd.in the Senate, Philip of Pennsylvania,
and William ofOhio, in the House. Kevordy
was elected as a Unionist, but wc don’t brag
on any of them.
Of Kelloggs there are two—Francis W. of
Michigan, and Orlando of oar State, —both in
tbc House, and as good Unionists as they
make anywhere.
Of Lanes there are two—Henry S. of Indi
ana, James H. of Kansas, —both in the Sen
ate and both Union.
Of Millers but two appear—Samuel F.
(Union) of New York, William H. (Coppery)
from Pennsylvania.
Of Morrills, Lot M. is a Senator from
Maine, Justin 8. a Representative from Ver
mont—both sternly Union.
The name of Morris belongs to two mem
bers—Daniel (Union) of New York; James
(Copneiy) from Ohio. Each is in the House.
Soalyors is the common appellation of
Amos and Leonard of that ilk—both from
Pennsylvania, and both "Union.
Of O’Neills, Charles (Union) Is from Penn
sylvania; John (Coppery) from Ohio; both
are in the House.
Of Pomeroys, Samuel C. represents Kansas
in the Senate; Theodore S. Is from New
York; Loth thoroughly Union.
There are two Randalls in the House—Sam
uel J. of Philadciplda, and -William H. of
Kentucky. Of these, the latter Is Union,
hat of the Border State pattern; tho other
is of the Copperhead persuasion. Cu
rious as It may seem, they usually vote
alike.
.The Smith family were scandalously over

one of them—Green Clay, of Kentucky,

Of Whites, Chilton A. and Joseph W. (both
Copperheads) complete the catalogue.
Of Wilsons, Henry, of Massachusetts, is in
the Senate, James F. of lowa, in the House—
both largely Union.
Finally we have two Woods—Fernando

of the other, wo would like to know which

Sojodunek Truth.—A letter from Battle
Creek, Michigan, says:
Sojourner Truth lives here in Battle Creek;
is very aged and poor, but is most kindly
eared for by the citizens far and near. She
wants for nothing that can make her comfort
able ; she realizes a little by the sale of her
photographs—those who purchase each pay
ing her from twenty five cents upward.
Some time this full she received a draft of a
small amount—?oo,l think—from England;
also one from Pennsylvania. She Is not with
out many friends, and seems to enjoy life as
well as ever. She takes her daily walk, staff
in hand, regardless of weather, andlias a pleas
ant smile, and a kindly greeting for each and
all.
