Some time last fall, a young lady, about
iweuvy ur twenty-two years of age, was gath
enng peat near night, when something bit or
stune her on the foot. She says it was a snake,
but she did not see it. Soma time afterward
it began to affect her. She seemed tn
fits, commencing about sundown and lasting
suunuuiw a pari, auu at otnerg all night.
She first becomes nervous, then inrkim.
and then her eye balls begin to protrude. anH
in a few hoars they look liko bursting out, and
ebe begs those around ber to push them back.
During ths fit she puts herself in every possible
attitude often trying to bite herself, licking
cut her tongue, and mimicking a snake in
many ways, and most generally perseveres
until she succeeds in bitinit herself: and. virl.
out to state, she generally tries to bite ber big
toe. About seven or eight weeks ago she got
so she would not drink, and shortly afterward
she oould not eatj. aad she has positively re
mained twenty-eight days without eating one
paruoie oi any tning.
The unfortunate creature suffers intensely
but at last accounts was still alive. Hundreds

WASHINGTON, January 5.
HOUSE. Mr. Morris, of Illinois, offered a
resolution, which was read for information,
that tbe Superintendent of Publio Buildings
bo direoted to replace the desks and obairs as
i hey were in this Hall previous to their it
novel, and to enable him to do so, he be di
reoted to prepare the old Hall for temporary
orcupanoy. Ho said he would not call up tbe
resolution Ibis morning.
Mr. Bingham and others objeoted.
Mr. Montgomery said Mr. Colfax, yester
Ijy, attacked his former proposition fur tem
porary organization on tbe ground of viola
'ion of the Constitution. He had offered it in
;nud faith. We are indebted to the mail oon
'aotors four millions; it is an honest debt,
Honestly contracted for service honestly per
I'urmed. It is not an Ameriean, Democratic
or Republican debt, but a National debt.
Adopt bis proposition, and they oould pas
ho Postoffice Appropriation Bill, and redeem
tho oredit of the nation.
Mr. Wilson said if the gentlemen was anx
ious to pay the debt, he would ask him to
adopt the plurality rule now.
Mr. Montgomery replied, if he was willing
to accept it others were willing to do so. If
tbroe-fourtbs were willing to accept it, and the
other fourth protested against it, an organisa
tion can not be affected, nor if ten men pro
tested. His proposition was fair, honest and
jut; he insisted that it was constitutional, and
he referred to our past legislative history to
show the precedent In such oases.
Mr. Stevens asked whether bis colleague
could show that before an organization a
Speaker pro tern, bad been elected.
Mr. Moutgomery replied that in 1839 and
1840, Mr. Adams was elected Chairman.
Mr. Stevens, was Mr. Adams' Speaker?
Mr. Montgomery considered him suoh. Mr.
Cirwin would be to-day temporary Speaker,
if the House would adopt his resolution.
mr. morris, oi r-ennsyivania, asked whether
mere was any legislation while Mr. Adams
was Chairman.
Mr. Montgomery had not examined the
reoord to see, but if there was no legislation
that did not prove there could not have been
He renewed his resolution.
Mr. Stevens raiBed tbe point that the resolu
tion was not in order; that previous to enter
ins on business, the aotlon of Congress re.
riuirod that the oath should be administered
. tbe Speaker, and by him to the Clerk and
all tho members, and tHt nn resolutions of
tills body can repeal iiw act. The proposition
now (fibred is therefore an abfirdity. The
eimes referred to by Mr. Mon'uomery wore
