TN this case it appearing to the satisfaction
of thecourt by the affidavit of cumplt this

Some British journalists are very fond or
quoting the exaggerated descriptions given by
some of the Washington letter-writers, of
“scenes’* in Congress, as evidence that|com*
motion, violence, and ferocity, will ever char
acterize ail deliberative bodies where repub
licanism prevails. I will not put myself for
ward as an apologist ol the temper or taste of
those peasons at either end of the Capitol who
disgrace themselves and their station by the
part they take in such ‘scenes.’ But I main
tain, notwithstanding, that, in the long run,
and as regards the vast majority of the mem
bers, a comparison between the House of
Commons and House of Representatives
would be in our favor. There are, it is
true, occasional exhibitions in the House
of Representatives which have had no paral
lel in the House of Commons; of latter years
at least.
But, notwithstanding the occasional .‘out
breaks of temper and rude manners, I repeat
that the general aspect of the House of Rep
resentatives, is far more orderly and decorous
than that of the House of Commons.
The proceedings in the latter, are frequent
ly dull enough; but seldom for never quietly
An Amoi»t<*qn «*nnfail tn hrt
astonished at the noise and aonfusihn which
generally prevail. Although the Speaker
takes the chair about half past four, there are
not many members present until an hour after
ward. From six till eight, the principal oc
cupation of a considerable number seems to be
to interrupt the debate by various kinds of cla
mor, unknown without the walls of Parlia
ment, such 88 a peculiar and almost inimita
ble promulgation of the voice on the sounds of
*‘o—o—oh!”and “a—a—hV and “ba—a—hf”
besides incessant cries of “question, question!,,
From eight till ten, there is a marked dimi
nution of the forces; as the members, generaly
have gone home, or to their clubs, or to the
restaurants to dinner. About ten, again, the
benches begin to fill up. Honorable mem
bers have dined, as is evident from their
heightened color, and increased propensity for
noise and vociferotion, and cheering, and
loughter. But many of them intend to go to
some ball, or evening party, or to look in be
fore the close ol the opera, or the theatres.
Their full evening dres3 shows they have no
motion of spending the night in the House.
Their tactics of interruption to debate and for
cing on divisions, are therefore renewed and
continued until business men are compelled to
yield and the adjournment is agreed to. This
is not the occasional but the customary and
characteristic course of proceedings of large
portions of the House ol Commosn;and in'cora
parison with it, the conduct of the vast major
ity of our Congressmen must be declared to be
far more nearly such as the conductor legisla
tors ought to De; mnniiety more suouuea, ae- j
eorous, and gentlemanly.

slices lengtliicse, dust either side oi those
slices with corn meal, or wheat flour, pepper
and salt them to please your taste; this done
fry them brown, and you will have one of the
most delicious dishes that you can imagine,
combining in their flavor those of the oyster
plant and eggplant. Of their healthfulness,
‘thus cooked there can be no question, and of
their palaiableness, it is only necessary that
you try them, to say with us that they are
exquisite. _
