The Bristol News acknowledges the
high honor of the Speakership of the
House of Delegates, conferred upon
its editor, Mr. I. C. Fowler, as really
one paid to the Readjuster press of
the State. Nay more. It is a com

the Senate in assuming to appoint its
own committers, that on Thursday

Wythville, and left the city of Rich

newly elected President, pro tern, of

Predictions to the contrary notwith
standing our new Lieut Gov. Col
Lewis, will qualify. Of course he will
resign his f 6ooo office for one that
pays much less. To those who never
could see into the millstone wc will
say that, if they will look down
through the hole that has been pecked
in it they will see that his son ShcfTcy

to the Speaker's clinlr by Ex-Attorney
Gcnl. T.ulor and Ex-Senator Hanger,
Hindu the following very brief address
UeiUltmen of the House of Iklnjatcs :
1 am profoundly scumble of and deeply
moved hv the conferment of this distiii
gulNlied honor at your haiiiU: I would
betray the belter feeling of my nature
If I failed to realize the rcHpon.sibilily a
well a the honor implied.
Wc are the agent of the. Common
wealth. wliofU sovereign power alone is
witbeld from us. Jn all else we have
committed to our keeping the power to
promote the prosperity and preserve the
glory of Virginia. May I trust that we
will Hsu lo lltu measure of our great coni
niirfsioii; that ll may be said the peoplo
have committed their Interests to w 1.-0
heads and patriotic hands.
Solicitingyoiirco-opcralion In the pies
ervaiiou of order, and trusting lo your
chari'y for my own imperfections, I now
announce as the. next business in order
the election of Clerk."
Of course but. little business has yet
been transacted. Speaker Fowler an
nounced on 'J'nesdiiy the Committee of
Privileges and EUelious, in order that
the Kockbildge contested election case
might recehe the attention of the Legis
lature before business could accumulate.
The, remainder of the Committees will be
announced next Monday, the 12lh.
J n the .Senate the Readjuster majority
were not willing to en.bi'rriiss the work
of the Session by leaving the appoint
ment of Committee to the present Lieut.
Governor, Gen. James A. Walker, and
they took that power into their own
hands, and will proceed to put the ma
chinery of thoSonato Into harmony with
the recent verdict of the people.
The contest over the U. S. Senalorship
U already becoming very exciting.
(apt. Jno. 1). Wise ha withdrawn, and
now Messrs. Massey, Kiddleberger and

to secure tlio prize. All reports to the
contrary, notwithstanding, it Is certainly
and authentically known that 1'rcsidcnt
Authur will not throw thn weight of Ids
administration In favor of cither of thn
candidates, but will leave the whole mat
ter to the ItciidjiMter of the General As
sembly. Col. Jno. F. Lewis ha been
hero for several days, and while he will
do nothing to create distentions In Head
Jusier ranks, yet hn is willing that his
friends shall urge bis name for the Sena-
torshlp If they so wish. Ituinor tells of
persistent cllorton the part of the I tind
ers to make such combinations a will
break the Iteadjuslers in two on the old

vinced they will fall of doing. Next

of eases In the county had recently been

years, and he was reputed to bo n very

tion, the 2nd day of January Is likely to

Holiday has not excited the slightest
ripple of comment. Even bis Fonder
