We Can Do Without a Congress.
TM people hate UflU'lii' glorious good
humor during the last weelt. . Tnej are con
tented not to have anT-yrgarjisetion of Con
gress. Bless frduglat'l' dear Wml.' ' The intro-
iqte general use, ha worked so well in Statoa
and Territories thai the sovereigns design to
do without a Congress'. ' We don't want any
more law.' ''A. few contractor grumble at the
nogloot to p7 ot the gold eaglet pf . the Gov
ernment for earrylag malls; ,a few of them will
fail, and throw up their contract. That's not
teriooi avili The newspapers are so Inoon
diarr these dajs that but few can legally cir
culate, and we hare bat little use for newspaper
mailt. The Pihky Fawn the ; people: will
. have, mails or no mails. Private enterprise
is adequate to carry the correspondency of the
'eoanhy. The si press -companies are regular
and reliable; and as the people pay 'the bills,

. We believe that the failure to organise ths
House would be a publip blessing. We would
' thus, practically, dispense with the frank'
lug privilege. Congressmen would be kept
measurably honest, not having any chance to
l be bribed for eomipt votes, and have no spate
. feange to gamble with. , Go on as you bate
begun, gentlemen j your t constituents ate
-willing to pay you $1,508 per year, to keep
yon each winter away irom onr districts
We don't tend oar most sensible men to Con
gress; we keep , good men at home to ket
affairs going smoothly. The people can
their own fighting, too, if any be needed.
any ships are wanted on .the ocean, we have
the live oak ready; we have built ebips in a
hurry out west, and we can do It again. We
have to do the hard fighting ourselves, when
tbt tug of war oomes; therefore, as we, the
people, have to pay the bills, we don't ears a

' Mr. Pagh's -resolution was taken up, and
Mr. Pugh resumed his remarks.. He ex
plained the meaning of the Kansas-Nebraska
Bill, whioh he regarded as a surrender of the
power of Congress ovor the Territories. He
denied that the Dred Scott decision was sus
ceptible of the President's interpretation.. Tbe
President seemed to think that the frequent
assertion of the same thing would finally cause
it to be accepted as a fact.
' It might be accepted by personal admirers,

HOUSE. As the attendance of members
was slim, there was a call of the House.
Mr. Sherman, desired to call attention to
the remarks of Mr. Houston, yesterday, as ro
ported in the Olobe to this effeot:
"I do not mean to say that these gentlemen
Adrian and Clarke, will vote for the Dem
ocracy, but I have no doubt that they will.
They will, I trust, return to their first love,
calm the agitation of the country and save the
House from the burning, withering curse and
shame of putting into the Speaker's ohair tbe
gentleman from Ohio."- ' !
Mr. Sherman inquired whether Mr. Hous
ton designed to reflect upon him personally or
politicallyT .
Mr. Houston replied, that he should have
supposed that the gentleman would sot have
nroDoundsd that eueitisn to him. for there
could he no doubt as to tbe proper construction
of the language.
lie did not suppose anv gentleman thought
he meant or intended a personal application.
The gentleman had been charged! with in
dorsing the sentimente Of the. Helper book,'
and had never disavowed its dootrines, which
were of a most ' treasonable and infamous
oharacter,and while he had made a statement j
which' some of his. friends, said was a dis
avowal, yet he (Houston) Contended that it
Was not a fair and vauilid dioaroiral -v tnj
doctrines Oontained in Hel', Doo fn.
stead of making a sHjj MpUnatjo,, that he
did not ins wnat was in that book, he ought
to tiv disovowed ths treasonable and infa
mous dootrines therein. This did not relieve
the gentleman from having indorsed the doo
trines of the book, and until he shall relieve
himself in a manly manner, which he has
been called upon to do, then he (Houston)
would say that Mr. Sherman was subject,
politically, to the remarks he (Houston) had
Mr. Sherman said every one ought to be
satisfied with Mr. Houston's personal dis
claimer. All would bear him witness that be
had listened to the character of tho deba'c
without objection. He had not been dipoeed
to regard tbe remarks as personal. So far a
his disclaimer of the doctrines of the Helper
book was concerned, any,, man who had any
sense of feeling, knew that his lips, in a great
measure, had been sealed from the first day of
the session, by what he must regard aa'
an offensive resolution, thrust in tbe
House at an improper time and in. an
improper manner, and insisted on in a way
without preoedent in parliamentary history.
The declaration was made on the floor that if
the explanation he bad made to the honorable
gentleman from Virginia, ( JMilison ) in tne pres
ence of the Houee, was not tatlm'aoto.7 t; ven-
tieman on tne otner side, tncy should insist at
point of manhood and justice, that the offen
sive resolution should be withdrawn. He had
said to his Mends, and now said to others,
that he would consent to have the Helper book
read, page after page, and then he would avow
disavow every sentiment therein.
lie Had never oonoealed bis opinions, and
the offensive resolution (that of Mr. Clark.
Mo.) should bs withdrawn, he -would be
prepared to speak further upon tbe subject.
Until the resolution was withdrawn, he ap'
pealed to every man to say whether he could
say any more. -
sat Houston said tbat Mr. Bnennan could
not thus escape the responsibility. .
Mr. : warns, or Md., proposed that Mr.
Clark's anti-Helper resolution be removed out
the way, and that the House adopt the
substitute adopted by the committee of Amer
icans, Democrats and Antt-Leoomptonites at
the meeting held on Sunday ovening, at which
was declared that ntman who recommended
still Insists on and does not disclaim tho
Helper doctrines, and. who , is not opposed to
the further agitation of slavery, is not fit to be
Speaker... t,j, ... ,,, . --:ft
Various gentlemen explained the circum
stances undervwhloh this substitute was
adopted. i; . . . ,
Mr. Haskin, of K. Y., asked a question of
Mr. McRae, of Miss., to whioh the latter gave
sharp, harsh reply. . . ,
Mr. Haskin made some remarks amid cries
order.-, Soon the members on all sides were
on their feet. Many rushed to the area and
main aisles. -.The Sergeant-at-Arms 1 was
called in. He appeared with his mace and
demanded peace.. The Clerk continued rap
ping to order, amid the utmost possible ex
citement. : ' , ,. 1
Subsequently-, Mr. Clemens,' of Va., said he
saw Mr. .. Haskin , take a pistol out of hit
breast. .....;,..;, ,., . i-
Mr. Davidson, of La., gave notice that when
ho again came to the House he would bring
hia shot-gun with him. .
Mr. Harris, of Md., said tbat he was making
"game" of the House. , ,
Mr. Haskin subsequently explained bow the
pistol happened to fall from his breast. Every
one that knew, iim knew that he would not
use it except in an honorable way.
Mr. Clark, of New York, apologised for ths
harsh remark. ,.f.ri ' '.

Willard bad admitted that the usage bad been
for a committee,, and hot in the way proposed
by Robinson. He denied that in the Conven
tion of 1858, Governor Willard, as President,
had constituted; a committee on resolutions,
composed of a majority of Anti-Leoompton
men. The reverse was true-r-not one of that,

Willard admits, there be a majority hero of
