3 .THE LONG CONGRESS. 6KETCH OF THE LONGE8T PRE VIOUS SESSION, 1849-50. Tae Exciting Tttn IMS. '49an4 'BO How lb Question of 8lary In th. Territories Was Debated Clay. Webater, Calhoun, Beaton, Cm, foote, Darla nod Houston, Tba longeat session of congress erer held under the constitution baa just closed, senate and house having slowly dwindled for weeks, until there were barely members enough present to go through the formal motions. The session held some two wpeks longer than thewer memorable session of 184'J-M), the longVrt previously held; but in brilliancy of talent, in popular interest and in the im portance of the subjects discussed there It no comparison. The congress of 184U-50 was the most important in American history, not yielding place to any during the war; and for the number of talented men who took part in tts discussions there is probably none other to equal it .luthat congress the venerable and silver tongued Clay, the massive Webster, the schol arly Calhoun and the rugged Benton bad their last mutual struggle, the last of earth for the first three. In the house there was a galaxy of greatness, almost every name of which has since become famous. Nearly all the old and worn political issues were laid aside by that congress; nearly all the new questions, to be fought over for the next twenty years, were started there; the terri torial system received its final shape, Cali fornia became a state, the Texas boundary question was settled, the fugitive slave law passed, and after long and heated debate the slavery question was settled by a compromise which both the great parties indorsed, aud which, it was fondly hoped, would endure for a century. The Uuion was nearer to a disso lution then than it ever again was before the war began. President Taylor died in tho hottest stage of the controversy, and Vice President Fillmore succeeded. 4 WXBBTER. CALHOCW. BUTTON. CLAY. It appears in the retrospect as if every possible event to excite or embarrass the government and the people was crowded Into the time of that one session. Kossuth fired the American people to a frenzied sympathy with the Hungarians. Lopes invaded Cuba, was driven away, and returned in 1851 with a band of American filibusters. They trere captured and condemned those who were not shot to a life of labor in the mines; and this led to peculiar complications, till Queen Isabella pardoned all the survivors. There were constant rumors of other expeditions against Cuba, Mexico and South America. A convention of "Are eaters" met at Nash ville and discussed a dissolution of the Union. There was much talk of the Gulf and South Atlantic states withdrawing from the Union, combining with the countries south of them, and thus forming a "golden circle" around the Gulf of Mexico. And while congress de bated what to do with California a rush of gold seekers took the matter out of their hands. The region jumped at once from a conquered province to a Htate, with no terri torial childhood, ami Senators W. M. Gwinn and John C Fremont took their official seats but a few days before the close of a session which had opened teu months before with an inquiry as to whether California had a gov ernment. The first session of the Thirty-first congress began Dec. 3, 1S41), and ended Sept. 30, m"0, and, except in tho few closing weeks, was one continuous and angry storm of debate. The Twenty-ninth aud Thirtieth congresses bad been stormy enough ; for the first dealt with the Mexican war, and the second with the close of it and resulting complications. President and senate were Democratic, but the house, elected in IMfl, was Whig, and chose Robert C. Winthrop speaker over Linn Boyd, of Koututky. Owing to the di vision between the bouses, the whole terri torial question was passed over to the Thirty first congress, and the whole of 184'J previous to its assembling was distracted with news paper articles and popular discussions on the Wilmot proviso, the old Missouri compro mise line and kindred matters. In this temper the Thirty-first congress met, and was at once precipitated into an angry contest over tho speakership. The par ties stood: Democrats, 1 12; Whigs, 105; Free Boilers, 13. For three weeks the members balloted once a day or oftener, and devoted the rest of the time to furiously sectional speeches. The Whigs supported tbo last speaker, Mr. Wiuthrop; the Democrats, Howell Cobb, of Georgia; but neither had a majority. On the 22d of December the mem bers decided to allow a plurality to elect, and Mr. Cobb was at once chosen. On the 24th President Taylor's message was received, and astonished the nation. It not only evinced fax higher talent than the country had given him credit for, and a familiar knowledge of the disputed questions not exceeded by that of any congressman, but was very short and plain, containing affecting appeals for the Union, and on the slavery question went almost far enough to satisfy the Free Soilera. It was plain that be would favor the early admission of California as a free state. A month's debate followed, with many propositions of a novel nature one by Sena tor Henry Foot, of Mississippi, to form the state of Jacinto out of a part of Texas. Jan. 1850, Henry Clay brought in his noted "eight resolutions," the first form of the celebrated "omnibus bill" and foreshadowing the compromise which finally became a law. His speech of Feb. 5 on these resolutions read to the peop.e like a gospel of peace and union, and popular opinion soon showed itself strong in his favor. On the 13th of February the president sent in the constitu tion, adopted by California, which was de bated with unusual acrimony. On the 14th of March John C Calhoun rose in the senate for his last speech, but was so weak that he bad it read by Senator James M. Mason, of Virginia. It clearly indicated a dissolution of the Union as the only hope for peace to the south; but ere the angry denunciations of the people reached Washington he was too feeble to bear them. He died on the 31st of March, after nearly forty years of continuous political service. On the 7th of March Daniel Webster nude the memorable speech which, las anti -slavery men used to say, ruined bis fame forever. This was the speech that drew from John O. Wnlttier that curious poem called "Icha bed." Yet history has fully justified all that Mr. Webster said about Utah and New Mexico. The list of young members who took part in that debate reads now like a roll of prophecy. Stephen A Douglas was but thirty-six, while William H. Seward was forty-nine and Salmon P. Chase forty-four. The venerable Lewis Cass represented Michi gan in the senate. Mr. Clay, in the same body, was in bis seventy-third year. Gen. James Shields was the colleague of Douglas, and Jefferson Davis the colleague of Henry 8. Foote. John Boll represented Tennessee, William R. King Alabama, and Hannibal Hamlin Maine. John P. Hale, formerly a Democrat, had entered the senate a Free Boiler, from New Hampshire, while Vir ginia's senators were James M. Mason, after wards of uote in the Mason-Slidell mission, and Robert M. T. Hunter, who ranks with Yancey and so many more who were active in bringing on the civil war, but sank into obscurity soon after it began. The speeches of that long, hot summer ses sion read now like extracts from ancient his tory. They have no more bearing upon live issues than if they bad been delivered in the Roman senate or the Athenian Areopagus. On the 8th of May Mr. Clay brought in his noted "omnibus bill" On the tKh of July President Taylor died, and his successor favored the other wing of the Whig party. During August and early September the measures of compromise were separately passed through congress, the noted fugitive slave law exciting most criticism In the north. Utah territory was organized by the act of Sept. U, 1N50, and President Fillmore appointed Brigham Young governor on the solemi assurance of Mormon representatives that "plural marriage" was neither a doctrine nor a practice of that church. At the very time his commission as governor was written Brigham Young had eight "wives!" Out of this long session two men came with peculiar honor, Senators Houston and Rusk, of Texas. They managed with such adroitness as to induce the government to pay Texas f 10,000,000 for "conscntiug to the separate organization of New Mexico," at the same time leaving to Texas the ownership of all lands within her borders and securing the payment of that state's debt by the general government! They certainly de served well of their constituents. Yet neither was conspicuously "southern" in bis views, and Houston, in particular, openly ridiculed the claims of Calhoun and Davis. The Texas men were in congress "for business," as Houston . said, and tbey certainly made the business a success. No sooner had congress adjourned than the mass of the people north and south ac quiesced In the compromise measures and testified their gratification in publio ad dresses and rejoicings. Both political par ties in 1853 indorsed the acts of the long session as a "final settlement of the slavery question," yet only two years later the set tlement was unsettled, and seven years after that the civil war began.

Fully 30,000 people are reported to have been present at the opening ceremonies, which were presided over by Governor Lee.

It is given up to floral displays, domestic manufactures, tex tile products, etc., and is supplemented by an art hall, a music hall, dog, poultry, stock and other shows, race tracks, etc. Of course, the Indian weed tobacco occupies a prominent place in this exhibition, and the place may be said to be a paradise for the user of the plant in its divers forms. Ashton Starke, presi dent of the exposition, is one of the happiest men in the Old Dominion, because of the suc cess of his pet enterprise. New York's Mayoralty Contest. The mayoralty contest in New York city is one of the most interesting of recent years. There are four candidates in the field, and the fight waxes hotter and hotter each day. The four candidates are: Abram S. Hewitt, the present mayor, nominated by the County Democracy; Hugh J. Grant, sheriff of New York city, the nominee of Tammany Hall; Joel B. Erhardt, the Re- QOANT.

Mr. Grant is a young man of 34 years. Mr. Erhardt is a local politi cian of cousiierable influence and abil ity, and Mr. Coogan has been prominent in labor circles for some time. All the candi dates are men of weight and standing, and the result of the conust is awaiiAd with great interest. A CHARACTER IN THE EARLY HIS TORY OF CHICAGO. A Native 4t New Hampafcira'i Kockbound Hills He, Drifted t lUlnels When bat a Young Man and Became a Potent Kaetor In a New ClvlllsaUev. Everybody has read of him. It was an off week when the papers failed to print some good story about, or amusing recollection of, "Long John" Wentworth. John . Wentworth was one of the most noted pioneers of Illinois. He was born in the quiet little town of Sandwich, N. H., on March 6, 1815, and was a descendant on both sides from the earliest settlers of New Eng land. His paternal grandfather was John Wentworth, Jr., member of the Continental congress from New Hampshire, whose name is signed to the original articles of confeder ation. CoL Amos Cogwell, a distinguished officer of the revolutionary war, was bis maternal grandfather. John Wentworth, after having been grad uated from Dartmouth college, began to feel a great yearning to see the boundless west The desire finally grew into a decisiou. On Monday, Oct. 3, 1830, he left the paternal roof tree with the general Idea of going some where, and $100 in his trousers pocket. He was a strapping youth of six feet six inches, though he did not then weigh 300 pounds as he did during bis later years. Upon his Journey be traveled by post coach to Con cord, N. H.; thence across the Green Moun tains to Troy, N. Y. j thence to Schenectady; thence, for the first time, on the cars to Utica, N. Y. ; thence, for the first time, on the canal to Tonawauda, N. Y. , thence by stage to Niagara Falls; thence on a steamboat, for the first time, to Buffalo; thence on another steamboat to Detroit, arriving there Oct. 13. He didn't think be was far enough west then, so he sent his trunk on a sailing vessel to Chicago, took stage for Michigan City, IiuL, and ou the ensuing day set out on foot for Chicago. Several old residents after ward remembered seeing Wentworth en route to Chicago, tall, dusty, gritty and independ ent as he strode toward the goal where be was to win fame and fortune. He arrived in Chicago on Oct. 35. It was then a straggling frontier village, with a transient popula tion of 2,500. Went worth put up at the old Sanganash tavern. It was kept by a Mrs. Murphy, who still lives. On the 25th of October for the fiftieth time Wentworth cele brated the anni versary of his ar rival in Chicago by dining with Mrs. Murphy. Tbey sat and talked of the old days over spring chicken, doughnuts and hard cider though "Long John" was always very fond of something con siderably more po tent than hard cider. It has been n"1 I!"!? LO JOHN WENTWORTH. John" and the old lady were the only relics of ancient Chicago, excepting the lake and the river, khat were not destroyed by the big fire. 13 Wentworth resolved npon pursuing the study of the law, but as be was a breezy, clever young fellow he attracted the atten tion of the managers of The Chicago Demo crat, and he was iuduoed to take editorial charge of the paper. He at once plunged into politics in a small way, making speeches and advocating popular measures. In 1KD Governor Carlin appointed him an aide-decamp, with the rank of colonel. The Chicago Democrat, of which by this timo Wentworth was the owner, was changed tfan afternoon publication in 1840". Wentworth had found time during his early journalistic career to study law. In 1841 he left his paper in capable hands and went to Cambridge, Maw., intending to attend a yearly course of law lectures. His name, however, had been prominently mentioned as a congressional candidate, aud before completing his studies he returned to Chicago and, Mtssiug a success ful examination, was admitted to the bar. lie was elected to the Twenty -eighth congress in 1S43, when but 28 years of age. He was ro-electad in 1844, bis first term having been a short one, and during this year served as a delegate to the national convention at Balti more which nominated James K. Polk for president. He declined a renomination to congress in 1850, and retired from the house March 4, 1851. In 1852 he was again nomi nated and elected, aud, declining further con gressional honors, he retired March 4, 1855. He was elected mayor of Chicago in 1857. Ho retired at the end of this term, but wax re-elected in 1860, aud while serving this term he received in true western style the Prince of Wales, who was then touring the United States. Long John was police com missioner in 18i3, and took part in some ex citing events of that troubled time. In 1804 he was again elected to congress. He was not renominated at the close of bis term, but in 1870 ran against Charles B. Farwell and was defeated. From this time he took no active part in public affairs. He devoted himself to agricultural pursuits at his beau tiful farm of 4,000 acres. He published a very interesting work entitled "Early Chi cago," and also compiled the genealogy of the Wentworth family from the days of Richard de Wynterwade, who in 1006 was proprietor of the fief of Wentworth in the West Riding of Yorkshire, to the present time. Of his five children but one, Roxanna At water Wentworth, is now living. His estate is estimated at about (0,000,000, which be acquired by indomitable energy and industry, and judicious purchases of rapidly improving real estate. Hundreds of Htorios were told about the rare old man. One rather good one runs as follows: In the panic of 1873 there was a run on Sol Smith's bank. At the height of the excite ment a tall form was seen moving dowu the street carrying an immense roll of bank notes, . It was Wentworth. To every one he met be made the remark that "I ain't afraid, be gosh, and I'm just goin' down to make a deposit with SoL" The news spread like wildfire. Arriving at the bauk, Long John towered above the beads of the clamor ous depositors, pushed men oat of bis way with his gigantean arms, and called out: "You fellers want money. Stand back an' give me a chance. I want to make a de posit of $20,000, be gosh." In five minutes the "ran" was over and the bank sared, though its rescuer afterward confessed t&t in that roll of bank notes there was Just one good bill, the ootr.de one, all the others being Confederate notes from his museum of curiosities. He was a great lover of high bred cattle, but be did not bke to pay fancy prices for them. Be was one Induced to eater into com petit! on with a rival farmer at a cattle safe. On the catalogue was a flne bull with a record that was unimpeachable, and ''Long John" wanted him. To his surprise bis rival started the bidding at $3,000, and Mr. Went worth bid up to $6,000, all the while increas ing his temper. Then the opponent bid $7,000, and "Long John" nearly fainted. Not to be outdone, he bid $8,000, when the other man immediately went him $1,000 better. "Long John's" anger here got the best of him. "I bid $13,000 for that bull," be cried out, and it was knocked down to him. He was fighting mad when a few minutes later he beard the man who bad bid agairst him say to a friend: "I didn't want the bull, anyhow. I only wanted to draw the old man on. 1 bought bis full brother this morning for $3,000." Long John never got his price for that bull, and his neighbors laughed at him for many a day for allowing himself to be taken iu by a farmer over the river. Mr. Wentworth once related that he got his nickname in the following manner: "When," he said, "1 was going to school down in Connecticut, 1 was the longest, skinniest boy you ever saw. I was 14 years old. 1 used to have a habit in those days of getting my heels up on the seat, so that my knees tow ered above my head. I was sitting that way one day in school, when one of the exami ners came around. He said to the teacher, 'What's that boy doing standing up on the bench! Why don't you make him sit down!1 The teacher said I was sitting down. 'That's the way he sits,' said the teacher. 'Who is ber asked the examiner. 'John Want worth,' said the teacher. 'He's a pretty long John,' said the examiner, and ever since then it's stuck to me." THE MARTIN FUND. Newspaper Men of (lie I'nlted States Are liaising It. The terrible yellow fever which for twelve weeks has desolated Jacksonville, Fla., has stricken uo braver, nobler man than Edwin Martiu, the late managing editor of The Times-Union, of that city. There are few sadder deaths than was his. He fell at the post of duty when not far past the beginning of an honorable and useful career in the higher walks of journalism. Edwin Martin was boru in Winchester, Tenn., Oct 4, 1848. His father was a native of South Carolina, and his mother of Patrick Cuuuty, Va Owing to the breaking out of the war between the states at just that time, when a boy of his age is generally en gaged in laying the foundation for an educa tion, young Martin's opportunities were lim ited to the common schools and the academy, and active hostilities broke up the latter In the early months of the coutest. His father, therefore, placed him in the office of The Winchester Home Journal, where his educa tion was greatly improved, aud where he acquired a practical knowledge of the typo graphic art. This was in 1863. In 1863 his parents removed to Georgia to seek a more quiet home during the dark days when the Old Dominion and eastern Tennessee were overrun by the Federal armies and bands of marauders. In the following year, at the age of 16, he entered the service of the Confederacy as a special courier for Gen. B. J. Hill (a friend of his father), who held a cavttlry command in the Army of Tennessee during Geu. Hood's campaign to Nashville, and afterward did arduous service with the "corps or observa tion" in north Alabama. Just before the close of the war young Martin, while on outy as a courier, was cap tured by a detach ment from Crox- ton's command, but being youthful ii: appearance and un armed, be bail the address to escape by a ruse. He was riding at the time a mare with a young colt, aud thus he easily passed off as a citi zen of the country thereabouts, es iiepiallv us he hail no written dis patches on bis person to betray bitu. Re joining bis command the same day he re mained in the service until the close of the war. After the surrender young Martin returned to bis parents' borne iu i'erry, Houston county, Ga where he devoted himself to study ami the reading of the standard Rng lish authors. He taught for a year or two, reading law at the same time, aud at the age of IU was admitted to the bar. For eight yea in he ed ited and published a weekly paper and prac ticed law. In lS80hewas elected, without opposition, a member of the Georgia legislature. His inclination for newspafier work was stronger than his taste for law, and in 188.'i he removed to Havaunah to become an edi torial writer on The Morning News of that city. In 1880 he was ottered the managing editor's chair oh The Jacksonville, Fla., Times-Union. He accepted and so ably filled the position that the opposition daily, The News-Herald, determined to secure him aud did. When the papers were merged be con tinued in his position. At the outbreak of the epidemic he bravely resolved to face the pestilence. He felt that it would be shirking duty to go away him self, and chose to risk his life rather than to join the refugees and leave bis work and the responsibilities of his position to others. The heroism shines out conspicuously iu the quiet firmness of the man; in the fact that bis de cision was not prompted by a spirit of bra vado. He was not courting the bubble rep utation, and from the first felt that the chances of living through the epidemic were against him. So be sent bis family to a point of safety and remained at bis desk night after night. He was a man of the finest traits of char acter, and by example as well as by written precept made bis influence felt daily through out his state. His private correspondence showed that from the first of the epidemic be calculated that the chances were against his living through it On the third day after be was stricken he had the fatal black vomit The next day he died. Bishop Weed, of the Episcopal church, conducted the funeral ser vices, which were attended by the most prom inent men left in the city. Mr. Martin left a widow and three children. For the benefit of these the newspaper men of Savannah, Oa., have undertaken to raise a memorial fund. Every newspaper worker in the United States is requested to contribute something to this fund, and the city editor or some man on every paper is asked to take charge of the subscriptions in his office. All remittances should be made to J. 1L Estill, chairman Martin memorial fund committee, and all other correspondence to A. K. My res, secretary, Savannah, Ga. SI n4W Uml IT till A a MM m n a - - .
