Tib Forbbal or Mas. Firomov. Dr.
Samuel R, Wilson, who had been pastor for
twenty years of the deceased, conducted the
religious exercises yesterday at the funeral of
jurs. Ferguson, at the House of Mr. Bhoon
berger A number of passages of Soripture,
pertinent to the occasion, were read, and a
short address given from the words. "Blessed
are the dead who die in the Lord." He spoke
of her as one who loved the place where God's
people met. Be advised the survivors to fol
low her, for she followed Christ; to make her
God their God; her Savior their Savior; her

A German, ' named Casper Stomager was
charred with abuslnr his familv. and the evi

Fatal Bbsclt or a Family Quiiril. On
last Thursday night a domestic difficulty oc
curred between Lewis Lltigan and his wife,
residing at No. 602 John-street The husband
had been drinking considerable, and after
some card words had passed, he seised
cheese-knife in one hand and a poker in the
other, and made a violent assault upon his
wife. . By some means, howsver, she came into
tne possession ot a stiok or wood, with which
she struck her husband on the head, knocking
him down and injuring him quite severely. A
physioian was Immediately summoned, who
dressed the wound of the injured man, and he
was regarged at in a fair way for recovery.
On Sunday evening, however.the man died,
sod yesterday Coroner Carey held an inquest
upon the body. The facts elioited by the evi
dence are substantially at related above, and
'the jury rendered a verdiot of death from the
intemperate use of ardent liquors.
There does not seem to be the least doubt
that death was hastened, probably superin
duced, bv the blow from the hands of hia wife.
No prosess hss been served upon the woman,
and will not be, at she was acting entirely in
self-defensey and would doubtless nave been
murdered but for the olroutnstanoe that turned
tne mow upon the would-be homiolde.

Township met on Wednesday, January 11,

i Saturday'! New York Times under dte of Friday
evening observes:
: The indications at the close of business, yesterday,
In Honey affairs, to the effect that the hardest time
had probably been passed, are borne out by the gen
eral experience to-day. The numberof pressing bor
rowers on the street diminished, and the applicants
at Bank wen better accommodated. We learn dlreot
from several leading establishment!, whose Boards
were, as usual on Filday, in session this morning,
that their discount! were en quits a liberal scale,
and confirmatory of this, some of the leading Dis
count Brokers report a diminished offering ot Prime
Unp. . uniM T
Paner at the recently advanced rates.
At the sama time the temetatlon to bur ohean Ex
change with good jobbers' paper, and a demand for
Money for Havana account on fair sixty-day accept
ance!, here led to a good many outside transactions
at from 10 to 13 per cent, while strlotly choice lists,
of 3 to 6 months donble name bills, are quoted at 84
&9 per cent. The Stock Broken And lees competi
tion for Loan oa demand, and, althongh the supply
of Honey In this way cannot yet be called easy, there
Is not so much disturbance of outstanding Loans.
: The standard drawers of Exobanga among the
Bankers yielded to 108 per cent, on London to-day,
which brougut flrtt-class transient bills down to 108)4

: Mr. Clingmsn dismissed Mr. Pogh's resolu
tion. He referred to the remarks of Mr. Cass
in 1858, in reply to an inquiry about his health.
He (Cass) said: "I am very well but depressed
In spirits. I used to think the Union could
never be dissolved, bnt now I have serious ap
prehensions to the contrary. They say Kan
sas creates the excitement, but a hundred
Kansas bills eonld never have produced it.
These people mean to liberate your slaves.
Ton may pot think they are fanatics but
the misfortune is they are Ignorant fanatics
Yon would gala nothing by making conces
sions. Yon cannot help us bat will dstroy
yourselves. Bnt if yon are firm you may pro
tect yourselves." Mr. Olingman then went on
to show that the Abolition feeling had spread;
that it controlled nesrly all the secular and re
ligions press of the North.

1 "V , f.0m New York ISewardl. Now there
Mr ,rom ,W0' v T10' j"),,,'"
Was m party at too xiortu wuu passeu uuis to
elnde tne United States laws. They hire men
to run off slaves of the South, and send mem
bers to the ether part of the Capitol to make
speeches hostile to the South. The American
people would decide if the question was fairly
put; that Omnipotence had made a difference
between the negro and white man, and we
must take the fast as it is. He claimed it at
settled, that the negro is inferior to the white
man, and is benefitted by slavery. There
were two wajs to remedy this trouble. One
Is to make the north see wrong, or else ,iht
South be independent. Two things had made
the Sooth disunionlsts. One the small vote
Mr. Fillmore had received, and the other the
manner in whioh the raid of John Brown was
reoeiveel at the South; -
The South had no more fear of a rising of
the negroes than tne nan mat an election or a
Blaok Republican President would furnish
sufficient saute for a dissolution of the Union.
He. moreover, thousht that would be a suf
ficient overt set It oould hardly be expeoted
that tne eoau wouia watt nntu sue was com
Dletelv in the tower of her enemies. A
Black Bepnllloan President eonld draw away
all the arms front a slave State, and take suoh
action as would leave the Booth open to a
hundred John Brown invasions. If the South
submitted to the election of a Blaok Republican
President, she would be in the same oondttlon
m an army who surrendered at dUoretlou
entitled to only suoh terms at the victor might
choose to grant.
He referred to the value of the Union, as
exercising a great power In stimulating; the
liberals ot Europe to contend sgainst mon
arohlal and aristocrats Institutions. In the
course of his remarks he said that Southern
men would sot secede from the Capitol. This
was the last place of all they would ever give
np. u ine union was w ee aissoived in
blood; he hoped - the first fruits weald he
resped. He concluded by expressing oona
deice in the good fortune of the United
States, and hoped -for the perpetuity of the
Union. Senate then adjourned, t ,
HOUSE. A point of order was raised on Fri
day by Mr. Leake as to tha admissiability of
Mr. fennisgton's plurality resolution, and
this morning it was passed over informally.
Mr. Underwood Indulged the hope that by
this debate the people ot. the South had been
aroused to their position in the Union, and
have become fully acquainted with the ends
and aims of the Republicans. It would be
neither truthful, profitable or just, to speak
of the Republicans otherwise than as the Ab
olition party, whom he regarded as utterly
unmindful of their Constitutitional obliga
tions, i .
He gave a brief history of ths slavery agita
tion not as Southern man but as a citlaen of
the United States; for the Constitution not.
only defends the rights of the South but ef
tne union. Jn tne course of his remarks be
said he wanted a united South, and the South
to demand nothing to which they were not en
titled, While they were divided they were
a prey to faction. This Is aot the time to
form a new party when the Republicans en
danger the Union. No man at the South is
willing to dissolve the Confederacy unless their
rights are disregarded and the Constitution
violated. Let the ory be justice and the Con
stitution. Let there be a union of true men of
the South with men of the North, for the
preservation of that instrument. The Dem
ocratic party is the only hope of the coun
try. Mr. Hill, in explaining, said there were
many gentlemen in political life who, thongh
now co-operating with the Republlcang,do not
cordially sympathise with them. A Union
party was proposed, based on attachment to
the government and the enforcement of all
laws. Would it be a national misfortune to
make such a division of the- Republican
Mr. Underwood wished to know what ev
idence he had that any portion of the Repub
licans would join a new party.
Mr. Bill replied that a portion of the gen
tlemen who were elected on the People's ticket
had shown their nationality by voting for Mr.
Gilmer. He hoped this class of men would
uoite with the Union party and separate from
the Republicans.
Mr. Underwood responded by saying they
showed they were sectional men by first voting
for Mr. Grow snd then for Mr. Sherman many
times. He would tell his colleague that at no
time or place or under any oiroumstances
would he trust his constituents in the hands
of Thadeus Stephens, neither would he go into
a political assooiat'on with him.
Mr. Hill wiehed to know whether his col
loague would spurn afillation with John
Coohrane on the Buffalo platform.
Mr. Underwood replied that John Cochrane,
who was absent, could speak for himself.
Mr. Hill If he would help you to a Dem
ocratic majority very well.
Mr. Underwood replied that he would not
break down the constitutional pnrty at the
North to make a new party.
Mr. Hill said the new party was predioted
on the good sense of the American people.
Mr. Underwood contended tha t the South
were as patriotio as the Pennsylvania mem
Wi': why not then were the lattor as good as
the former. Ho eulogized the Democratic
party, and oommenl" .u the conduct of the
Southern npsilion lugarding their votes for
speaker. No reason bad been given why
these twenty-three gents had not voted for
the Democratic nominee.
Mr, Larabee, who with others t artlcipaled In
the debate, asked Mr. Hill whether the latter
entortained prescriptive principles sgainst
the foreign-born eitlsen on account of certain
religions opinions.
Mr. mil replied that he naa i.ot changed a
sentlmenc since 1844, had" ever thought that,
Intelligence being equal, he should voto for a
native in preference to a loreign born. I Ap
plause I
Mr. juaiaoee inegenis sre ai wiaeai tne
poles sre apart.
Air. Uiii-uecause our constituents are.
He Larabee replied, though he represented
the largest naturalized constituency of any
man in the House, he would vote for a Sooth
American in preference to a Republican.
Mr. Underwood wished to know how many
Southern Oppositionists would vote for a
North-western or Southern Democrat.
Mr. Stokes said he had already stated that
In tho contingency between a Democrat and
Republican he would vote for a sound con
servative Domoorat. He would not vote for a
man who was in favor of Judge Douglas with
squatter soveerignty principles for the Presi
nr. xiatton wanted to know if Mr. under
wood's North-western Demooratio frienda wero
willing to vote for the protection of slavery In
ths Territories in the form of a statute?
Mr. Underwood did not doubt they were, for
the reason the President said so, and the
Northern Democracv had never failed to give
the South all the rights they are entitled to
under the Constitution. Applause '
Mr. Hatton wanted further to know if they
would support a man who believed that the
people, in a Territorial capacity, would have
the right to legislate on the subjest of slavery,
which be regarded as a rauaoyT
Mr. Underwood thought that he would see
that the tendenoy of such questions was to di
vide and dlstraot the Democratio party, whioh
only could hurl baok the wave of fanaticism.
He wanted the South to see that the South
ern Oppositionists were throwing fire-brands
into the Demooratio party. In conclusion, he
aid he would stand or fall by what Georgia
should isdioate. Ha occupied the floor nearly
four hours.
Mr. Morris replied to a portion of Mr. Un
derwood! remarks, and brought the President
up to his reoord on the Territorial Slavery
question, on which he arraigned him the other
day. He repeated that the President has
abandoned his original position, and made a
bid for ths Southern vote in ths Charleston
Convention. . Adjourned.

From Washington.
Washihgtoh, January IS. Various private
conferences have taken place since Friday
among the gentlemen of the different States
with the view of agreeing upon a basis for ths ;
election of a Speaker, but, as heretofore,
without a favorable result. Several members
await an opportunity to offer propositions of a
praetioal character for this purpose. Among
them is Mr. Sickles, whose resolution pro-.
vides that the House proceed to the eleotion of
Speaker etea voce, and If upon the lint eall of
the roll no one shall have a msjoiity, a quo
rum being present, then from those having the
highest number; the candidate not exceeding
three, the House will proceed to a second vote,
and if neither has a majority, then from the
two highest the House will make a choice of
a Speaker, and also that if upon ths third vote
the said two persons shall receive an equal
number, the House will continue to vote for
one or the other of the same two persons until
one of them shall receive a majority; and that '
pending the election, and until a choice be
made, there shall be no debate.
The most that is claimed for this proposition
is, that it is scoording to the Constitutional
mode of electing a President by the House in
the event of a failure of the people to do so,
and the mode by whioh the Senate ohoosts
the Vice-President in the same contingency.
The Senate, in Executive session, has con
