Wonderful Instancs of SiGAcin!
We hear of' an instanoe of sagac
ity practiced by Ihe, elephant attach
ed to He'rr TDriesbach,8 menagerie,
which deserves record. "Com'iDg in
to Newark, Ohio, last week, the ele-
, phantfs keeper fell in a Gt from his
horse. UThe .whole menagerie imme
diately came' to ' a halt and some
members of the .company ' went for:
ward to pick -up7 the man. But the
elephant would not allow nn person
to approach the lifeless form of his
kbeper: Taking him up with' his
truuk, softly,' he.would place him on
liiS hdreej'but finding that the. man
was senseless, he -laid him . on the
ground, aaJ kept watch over him.
Muy members of the menagerie
tried to so'oth the .faithful, elephant,
who had now becomo furious at'jhe
supposed death of Ins "master, but to
no purpose, and the're the man In)',
watched by the sagacious animal.
After lying in. this condition for some
' time.'a physician, who had been sent
or,nrrived,and yet the elephant would
notallow'hoVne to npproach. At
length the keeper, became so far con
8cius as to commahd the elephant to
let the physician come near, and the
V nnimal was docile and obedient, iu a
moment, nod the keepor vas properly
cured for; the elephant, all ti while,
expressing the utmost anxiety for

'Hon. Henry. II. Fuller,
This gentleman having on the 10th
inst.', in m elaborated speech denied
the authenticity of a letter Written
by him in 1849, in which he avowed
himself a free-soiler, the Hon. G. W.
Jones said in reply: i. ' ? -:
Mr. Joxes, of Tennessee. In April
last, I addressed a letter .to my con
stituents, which was published, and I
sent a copy of it to each number of
this House. In that letter, sir, . I
give what purported to be a letter
from the gentleman from Pennsylva
nia,who has addressed the House this
morning, addressed to B. F- Saxton,
which tetter the gentleman this morn
ing repudiates as forgery.- That let-
t. S M b to purported to be
his AUeghnny EDeech, was puthshed
;ju the papers of Pennsylvania and
f A . . . y . . :
other States during thi last winter.
In the month of February, . another
member of this House a gentleman
from Missouri, Mr. Caruthors ad:
dressed a letfer to his .constituents,
and he gave both- those extracts in
his letter, and it was circulated through
the country ly. tW members of this
LHouse.. borne five or six weeks
after the .publication of that letter
I took thosi extracts,' and gave them
a place in the letter L .addressed," to
my constituents. During all that time
I had seen no contradiction, and -no
suspicion or question as to their au
thenticity, and ; had I not believed
that they were not authentic I would
hot have given them ; circulation ia
that or any other fbnn. . .
But I understood the gentleman to
say that there-was a letter , written to
a Mr. Saxton on thar" subject, and that
this one. is a forortTy, manufactured
perhaps from the pne . which he ad
dressed to Mn Saxton, and which was
stolen andaltered, as I understand
him. ' Now, sir, I shall be glad . to see
the genuine ons. I do- not under
stand the gentleman to repudiate the
sentiments ia that letter as being en
tertained by him in 1849. Nor do
I understand him as repudiating the
sentiments . attributed to him in the
report of his Alleghany speech, though
he said it was such a report as that
he did not recognize it as his speech.
The gentleman can now say wlfethef
he entertained those sentiments.
Mr. Fuller. I said I would pub?
lish the letter as it was written; and
I said that the report of the speech
at Allegh.- hy was so much stronger
m substance and in language than
anything which I had uttered, that -I
did not recognize it at all; arid I de
nied the utterance of the Sintimants
imputed to me. ; ' .
Mn Jones.' I would inquire of the
gentleman " whether it is correctly
stated that the paper m which that
speech was reported was. in his sup
port, or favorable to his election, wheil
he was a candidate for the offica bfi
Canal Commissioner; and whether Ee
repudiated that report at the time it
wa3 published, and pending the can
vass ia that State? ' '
Mr. Fuller.' : I stated tho fact to
one oT the publishers of the paper in
which the report, appeared. I left
the city on the day,' I belie va, that
the publication was made. .; It was
just previous to the election, and I
had; some four hundred miles or more
to 'tfavel, with numerous appoint
ments to meet. "I had no : time . to
revise the newspapers. ' v . ''
Air. Jones. ; Then I do not under
stand that the gentleman ever public
ly repudiated the report, or that the
paper which published, it' madeany
corroction. . ' . .'...'
Mr. Snted. I rise to a' question ofj
order.. w " - : - :
Mr, Jones -yes; make your ques
tion. . ! V' -
Mr. Sneed v I shall object to noth
ing that my' colleague desires' to -say
in personal explanation or vindication,
under this leave-of the . House; but' l
protest asrainst the gentleman getting
up", and under the . plea of personal
explanations, ..mating accusations a
cainst others.
The Speaker. Th3 ;xhair must
make tLe same decision on ths ques
tion of order raise'd by the gentleman
from Tennessee as it: made 'on - that
raised, by tho gentleman from Penn
sylvania, Mr. Jones- The gentle-
man's colleague Mr. Jones of Tenn
eesee obtained consent, to make, a
statement relating to his personal
position; and it is impossible for the
CJhair to say that the discussions of
these matters to which he alludes is
not necessary to determine his own
position. .
Mr. Sxeed.- 'My colleague has not
been assailed at all
The Speaker. The gentleman from
Tennessee Mr.' Jonesjlias the floor.
Mr. Jones. I submit to mv coU
league' whether itwas a personal ex
phnation when the gantleman from
Pennsylvania Mr Fuller was ma
king an assault on' Mr. buchanani
Mr. Sneed. - Certaiuly it was.
i Mr. Jones. And I would ask him
why he did cot them raise tho question
oftof order?
( r
"Afr Rvprh: " Thn nlln?ion to Mr
Buchanan was intimately connected
with his own position. '
..Mr. Jones. I do not see how. I
do not suppose that the gentleman
pretended or pretends now,, to be a
supporter of Mr. " Buchanan. All
I want in this. Cass i3 to get at the
. I shall be rejoiced if the gentle
man from Pennsylvania v did in 1849
entertain the ' sentiments attributed
to' him it he has repudiated those
sentiments: and. I would rejoice if
every other one throughout this coun
try, who entertains such sentiments
would follow his example,' and if he
has"repudiated - them, do likewise.
Sir, I do not understand the gentle
man from Penns3'lvania to repudiate
the sentiments of anti-slavery, and of
opposition to the extension of slavery
entertained by him in 1849.. ? I do
not understand that at that- time 'ho
was an opponent of the Wilmot pro
so. And, sir, I should be gratified
to know whether the gentlemaa does
not occupy now the position with re
gard to the slavery issues which he
has always occupid? That, Eir, is a
question which I should "be glad if
the gentleman would answer.-
Mr. Fuller I stated, as I sup
posed very clearly and distinctly, that
I denied the utterance of my senti
ments in favor of northern interfer
ence to secure the abolition of slavery.
I stated this distinctly. I repeat it,
that on these occasions tho question of
slavery was discussed m Pennsylva
nia in consequence of the then recent
acquisition from Mexico and was
treated by me in the manner I have
stated.; .- j' ' 1 "
Mr. Jones. That is what I under
stand even the gentleman from Ohio
Mr. Giddings will advocate to-day
that'they will not. interfere with
the institution in the States where it
exists; that if-the South wish to re
tain it they have a right to do so.
But I would ask the gentleman from
Pennsylvania .if ho did not, : iri . that
canvass, at that time, advocate" the
adoption by Congress of the Wflmot
proviso, and if. he was not at the time
acting with the ; Wilmot-proviso or
anti-slavery party of Pennsylvania. .
Mr. Fuller. I will say to the gen
tleman that during that contest, I
had not the folly to argue a great
constitutional question like that of the
WUmot provi;o. ; It had nothing to
do "with the . discharge of tho duties
of the ofBco for which;! was a can-
didate, and therefore did not attempt
to argue it. Why, sir,. as late; as
1849, General Cass,' here in the Sen
ate, declared that the .Wiimot proviso
Mr JoNES. , If ih. gentleman " is
going to make a speech, he' had better
take another hour.,' " ! :v . -.
Ifvl Fuller. Just a moment, . by
way; of illustration; I. say, ' General
Cass declared in. Senate that he", ha'd,
not examined the question, of the con
stitutionality 6f the Wiimot proviso.
And, bit, certainly if General Cass,
who had been engaged all his life in
the public service, as Governor of a
Territory, as Senator in Congress, and
as Minbter abroad, withali his vast
opportunities,' and his- acknowledged
intellect, h&d riot had time, and J was
not prepared, to pass upon -the con
stitutionality or the " unconstitutional
ity -of, the Wiimot. proviso, how could
I; a young and humble " candidate for
the office of canal "commissioner, be
- I'expectecl to entertain any opiniorji
upon tne great suDjacn ureac iaugn
ter. ' ' , ' . '. .
Mr. Jones: The . gentleman from
Pennsylvania : did hot answer the
question which I propounded to him:
whether he approved, f-ajf that time, of
the Wuniot proviso or not; and wheth
er, he did not act at that time , with
the Wicot proviso party in PennsyU
vania?' "The gentlemaa- says Tie .had
r.ot tne iquy to .argue tLe . constitij
tionality of that question 4 Perhaps,
like many cf , those,; who . ac!ed with
him, he took itfor granted that It was
constitutional, and that it would, be
labor thrown away to. argue the ques
tion. . .
Tho gentleman further 'says that
the constitutionality 6 that question
had nothing" to do with the, duties . of
the cfiicc for which he was a candidate.
I asked tho gentleman if he did not
state? in his remarkAhat he discussed
.the" question o? -slavery in his Alle
ghany spdech.but that it was reported
stronger than he - made it? "And I
should further like to ask the gen
tleman what relation the question of
slavery had to discharging the cflicial
duties of canal commmissioner of
Pennsylvania? Laughter.
And agauf if he did discuss that
question upon ' that pccision, did he
or did he not touch upon the Wiimot
proviso; and did he or did ho hot say
he was for tho Wiimot . proviso, and
against the extension of slavery in
in the territory then recently acquired
from Mexico? or what was the . issue
between him and his competitor that
made it necessary for him to discuss
the question of Elavery at all? Were
they both on the same side,- or did
they profess different principles, &nd
occupy difl'erent positions? ' . , "
The CiBcicDcli Slaie Case.
II.- H. Robinson, the' United States
Marshal, was arraigned cn Wednes
day before the probate court of Ham-
ut on county, Ohio, lor contempt of
court in delivering the slaves in the
Gaines caseto the owner, instesid of
obeying the order of Judge Burgoyne
to bring- them before the probate
court upon writ of habeas corpus.
The Marshal answered that the slaves
were delivered to the owners in compliance-with
an 'order of the United
j Slates District Court, of which he
is an elucer. J udge Burgoyne fined
him $300 an d ordered him to be
committed until he orjeys the order
of the court. 'The Marshal applied
to Judge Leavitt, United States Dis
trict Judge, to liberate him from fli
habeas corpus. . After an' argument
of the case, the Judge postponed his
decision and Fwubiiwou was' remand
ed to jail. . . ' ,
