The District Commissioners have forwarded to the Senate District Committee the following com munication or Water Registrar Timothy Luby, In answer to one from them inquiring whether the distributing reservoir of the water works nar Georgetown is properly protected from the waste and drainage of the highway and ground ad jacent thereto. Col. Luby states: "In company with CoL Samo, assistant cngl- r.eerof the Washington acqueduct, I made a jier sona Inspection or the distributing reservoir and the grounds surrounding the same. The reservoir Ss situated a few miles above Georgetown, at a point known as "Drover's Rett." It is In form nearly rectangular, having about forty-four acres of water service; is 5,800 feet In length on Its front axglc, and Is separated fpjm adjoining grounds bya roadway Mleet wide; a ditch on the northerly ride of the road catches the surface drainage from the drove yards, and the other side or the read is protected bya conduit 7 feet in diameter. No drainage from the high grounds can get Into the reservoir unless It soaks through at least W feet cf packed clay. The drainage from the roadway Jiroper cannot get into the reservoir unless It be from the south footway, and only from that by soaking through the clay embankment of the reservoir proper, the slope of which Is faced with tone. The reservoir Is surrounded by a picket f-r.ee greet high, the bottom board or which set Into the ground from 3 tot Inches. I do sot see that any special recommendation can be made In this matter, unless it be the purchase of the sur rounding grounds that are now used In part Tor cattle yards, and which to the eye look badly. It the Government would obtain tsscslon of these grounds, Improvements could be m di to obviate the seeming trouble; and 1 believe ultimately the reservoir will have to be enlarged, to do which this ground will be a necessity." m Auction Sales Te-diy.

A very pleasing service was held yesterday morning in the Metropolitan M. E. church, (Rjv. Dr. Newman's.) A chance remark dropped by Mr. Hammond during the proceedings, as to the presence or an Episcopal clergyman In the meet ing at Baltimore on the previous night, elicited from another Episcopal minister present from Philadelphia a most enthusiastic address, deliv ered In chaste, scholarly Ianguagc,and expressive of his unbounded faith in this movement, and his disregard for sectional or denominational differ ences and prejudices. Alter the opening exercises. Rev. Dr. Noble said he had just come from visiting a house where all the members of the family, nine In number, were seeking religion. The head of the house hold, a man over fifty years ef age, had not been In church for eight years, and last Friday, when returning from the unveiling of the Lincoln monu ment, he was attracted to the open-alrjnecting at the Capitol, and the truths he heard penetrated his heart. This wasonly an Isolated ease, and, In view of the wonderful manifestation of God's power around us, we should not only bo grateful for these blessings, but remember our great re sponsibilities, and by the exercise of our lalthhelp the truth to spread more mia-htlly. - Bet. Dr, Hankln quoted" th Biblical text. "Make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof." All our doubts, our darkness and temptation comes from the fact that we are not willing to sacrifice our pleasures, and what should be a happy. Christian lire Is rendered miserable. To attain to a higher spiritual state we must for get all these things, and then we will be better able to walk In and enjoy the light or the Gospel. Mr. Hammond spoke as to the remarkable meeting which had been held on the previous night In Baltimore, and or the nnmbcr ofiinjlotn Inquirers prt'snt. He rtlt cvJffit inal the In fluence of this movement had reached that city, and iil a great harvest could be reaped there. Rcv.W. S. Hammond read a cumbcrof requests for prayer, among them being for two sons, for a father, for two brothers and four sisters, for a back slider, for a Sabbath-school clc,fortwo skeptics, for a deaf lady, for a feeble church in a distant State, for a son, for a dying friend and many others. Rev. George Brlnghnrst, an Episcopal minister from Philadelphia, said in his religious profession and ministerial life he knew no sectarian differ ences, and no bishop, priest or deacon could fetter his conscience or prevent him from expressing his opinion as to the divinity or this work. He had been cradled In the Protestant Episcopal Church, as generations or his family had been before him, and he might say that he was one of the very highest churchmen, a believer in that apostol ical succession which teaches men to live as near as possible to the lives of the apostles and the ex ample of Christ. In the city of Philadelphia, two hundred and seventy persons had been added to three Episcopal churches within the last few weeks, forty of them joining his church. He was In unison with tho movement at present being carried on in Washington, and felt that the work was breaking down the barriers that had so long obstructed the light and kept Christians far from caehothtr. In rice fields stakes were driven to dii Idc the crops of the various owners, but as the rice grew and flourished the stakes wcro gradu ally hidden, until nothing was seen but fields, ripe and waving for the harvest. So, as the seed of the Gospel began to germinate in the heart, the stakes of denominational differences and prejudices dlsapjwar in the Infinite love or Christ. Years ago he had listened to Mr. Hammond In the city or Philadelphia, and, knowing the work he had done there, his heart went out to him to day, and to every agency at work bringing Chris tians nearer to the cross, and swelling tno num ber or those who, by their faith and by their labors, w ere fitting themsch es for eternal life. At the conclusion of his address, and on the suggestion of Rev. Dr. Sunderland, a general hand-shaking was indulged In between ministers and audience, and the most pleasant feelings seemed to liave been engendered by such an un expected little euisode AFTEnNOOX SESSION. A children's meeting was announced to be held in Rev. Dr. Little's Presbyterian church, at the corner of Fifth and I streets, and at the aiinointed time the building was well filled with little ones, who sung their favorite song from the "Song Evangel" with that spirit and abandon which children only. can Indulze. A goodly number of adults were also present, who seemed to enjoy the ten Ices equally with the younger ones. Mr. Hammond spoke on the love Christ had for children, and on the duties they had to perform in onlcr to be like him and be happy and useful. He cautioned them against a olding even the appear ance of e 11, and warned them, no matter what their intentions might be, to strive by faith and prayer to overcome them. His illustrations In r upirt of his remarks were, as usual, appropri ate and effecth e, and relished by all present. Rev. Dr. Little followed in a few pleasantly-delivered remarks on the same subject, holding the undit ided attention of the little ones. The services closed with an Inquiry meeting. The Congregational church VTaf, aS Uaai, densely crowded last night, and the proceedings wereol a oiot impressive character. The singing by the choir Improves dally, but It Is e ident that some of tire members do not like the means adopted to bring them to their present state or perfection. During the Introductory proceedings our reporter obsen ed one of them with "eyes In a fine fremy rolllnir," rapidly scribbling upon some paper, whieh he had surreptitiously filched from our representative's table during his temporary absence. Afraid that he' might possibly be some press hireling In disguise engaged to write down the meetings, and fully determined that The Hs.rrnr.iCA:? would still continue to be consid ered the recognised organ of everything good and praiseworthy, our young man took advantage of a momentary tit of abstraction which came over the gentleman in question, and dexterously ab stracted the supposed report from his pocket. It, however, turned out to be only the following, pre sumably burlesquing the directions of one of the choir masters: On the music keep your thoughts. On sporzando and crescendo. Mind jour quarters, eighths and dots. Mezzo and diminuendo. Please observe staccato notes. All the trills and shakes and swells; Don't on forte split your throats. Do not overlook the dwells. Slnr not, slide not, drawl not, slip not. Do piano soft and low; On appoglatura trip not. On adagio make haste slow. If to this you'll give attention. And will uo as I desire, I will merely further mention That In time you'll be a choir." Alter the opening exercises Rev. Mr. Bring hurst, of Philadelphia, sjioke or the pleasure he had derived from associating with so many Chris tians, and exhorted all to renewed allegiance and faithfulness. He was followed by Dr. Presbrey, who gave a ver Interesting report as to the crowded meeting held ontbc previous night In Baltimore. The clergvmen of that city were united together In their views a s to the desirability of Inaugurating a series or union meetings In that city, and he urged upon all Christians that, remembering the great blessings they had themsch es received, they should pray earnestly for an outpouring of the spirit in that city. Mr. Hammond read that portion or the twenty second chapter or Genesis relating to the trial of Abraham's faith in the command to sacrifice his son Isaac and selected for his text the verse, "The Lord will provide." Isaac was a type of Christ. He was the only son or Abraham, and Jesus was the onlj "begotten son of his Heavenly Father. He was a type of Christ, alsd. In that both were oflered as a sac rifice by their fathers, and were to be sacrificed on Mount Morlab. Isaac bore upon his back the wood upon which he wa to lie burned, and Jesus twrc the cross upon which he was to be crucified. Both orthem were willing to givo themselves up at thecammandorthclrfathcrs. These and many other types were enlarged upon by the speaker in his own peculiar st lc, ami ho concluded by re peating the beautirul lines or Theodore Monod : Mi. lla Mtunhamcand Mirrow l nat a tuiM cill dir lie.

To the Editor of the Xatlonal Republican: Sir: Admirable as Is the monument by Mr. Ball In Lincoln park, It does not, as It seems to me, tell the whole truth, and perhaps no one monument could be made to tell the whole truth of any subject which It -might be designed to Il lustrate. The mere act of breaking the negro's chains was the actor Abraham Lincoln, and ll beautifully expressed In this monument. But the act by which the negro was male a citizen of the United States and Invested with the elective franchise was pre-eminently the act or President U S. Grant, and this U nowhve seen In the Lin coln monument. The negro here, though rlsinz. Is still on his kne:s ana nude. Wh it I want to see before I die is a monument representing tha negro, not couehant on his knees like a four-footed animal, bat erect on hit feet like a man. There Is room in Lincoln pa k" f'jr another monamenti and I throw out this -u?gesticn to the end that It may be taken up and jcted u.ion. ' Frederick Docolabs. The Beautiful Roses.

Description of the Hew Chur eh Edifice-Dedi cation Day Grand Organ and Concert. , me seal, perseverance ana industry snown ny the congregation worshiping at St. Angustine's (colored) Catolie church of tk!s d:y,'anjer the pastorate of the excellent and worthy rather, Rcr. Felix Barrottf, In the crectlonof so magnificent a temple or worship as the one we are about to. describe; Is eommendablo In tho highest degree. The magnitude of the efforts Is only equaled' by the rapid progress of Catholicism among the col ored'people In the city of Washington during a brief period cT twelve years. From a small two story brick building, erected for school purposes, with less than a hundred communicants, they are about to enter and take charge of one or tho most commodious and elegant church edifices in the country, with accommodations for one thousand five hundred persons, the corner-stone of which was laid by the Most Reverend Archbishoy Bay ley, June 14, 1871, with the most; Impressive cer emony. THE KJEW CHtntCTX. has a frontage or 63 feet, with a depth lot 135 feet In the clear. The basement walls, S feet thick and 12U feet high, are built or Seneca stone, tha work being done by Mr. Thomas O'BrlenJn the most substantial manner. The upper exterior walls are or fine pressed brick, with trimmings or Seneca and Ohio freestone. The laying of the brick Is the work of a mister mason, and reflects credit on Mr. John Chapman, or this city, the builder. The stone trimmings, furnished by Messrs. MeGowan X Co., or this city, are unique and well-finished, as Is also the granite stone work, furnished by MeMahon fc Gill, of Balti more. The summit of the building Is at present I ornamented with crosses and pinnacles. ba -jji BCreaitcr no auornea m auaiuoa ni 7. tower two hundred feet, la hvlsht. - - "" tower TSX ISTIRIOlt Is not only raultlcss tn style, but Is so grand In Its conception and finish as to rank It among the finest church edifices In the country. The celling from the main floor Is fifty-five feet in the dear, and Is, together with the walls, lovely to gaze upon; the soft delicate tints blend In such sweet harmony as to at once recognize the handicraft of one of Italy's most gifted artisans Lorenzd Scattagha. The distinguished artisan has also succeeded in placing high up around the altar likenesses of three of tho patrons or tho Church, which, as works or art, are equal to any. thing In the same line In this country, the centre and more prominent figure Is that or Saint Augus tine, after whom tho church Is named. On the right Is that or Blessed Martin de Porras, from whom the church originally was named after. (The change or name was not orcholce, but neces sary by the requirements or canon law, which de clares that only Saints can be patrons or the Church.) On the left Is Blessed Peter Clavcr, whose memory Is revered by all good Catholics for his purity and the service rendered the Church. Immediately around tho base of the altar are twelve niches, in which will be placed figures representing and emblematic or the twelve Apostles. The altar Is being built In New York orthe best and rarest matctials, and will be in pcrfoct har mony with the general surroundings. The stain glass windows Is the work of H. T. Uemhardt, and most beautifully has he performed the artistic and delicate task assigned him. The rays or sun beam never shed more lot ellcr tints than those which cast their reflections In and around the In terior or this bcautirdl edifice. Tho arrangement of light for tho building Is In perfect keeping with the general excellence which prevails throughout, and is scientifically adjusted by forming a circlet around the massive but graceful columns which support the roof. So perfect Is tho arrangement that the bright, bnt soft light, jetting rrom twelve burners, forms a complete haloaround the column. The baptismal font Is located In a recess specially built for that purpose on the south front entrance of the building. The floor Is laid with marble tile, and the recess contains three beautirul stained windows tho centre one representing tho bap tism or Christ, with the dove descending rrom Heaven, and the others represent Mary, THE VOTRfr. or JESTS, and St. Michael. The fount will be or the purest Italian marble, and the whole is in admirable harmony with the general plan or the building. The pews will accommodate 1,500 persons, and are or asb, with polished walnut finish. Each pew will bear a metallic number .if an original design, and are easy and comfortable in sitting; the up bolstering will lie In unison with the prevailing color. The choir Is located Immediately over the main entrance, and Is large and well lighted, and will contain an'organ contracted for by Father Barrotlwith Messrs. Hellner fcSchumekleer, or Baltimore, or which the following Is a description: It Is to be 28 feet wide and 12 feet deep, with two manuals, front and casing to be made or walnut and ash, with gilt and illuminated front pipes. The key-board will be of the best Ivory and ebony, and to project. The organ will have the following stops, with their dimensions: Tenoroon, 18 feet, number of pipes, 81; stop dlapson, 18 feet and 61 pipes; open Uiapson, 8 feet, 6l pipes; bell gamba, 8 feet, 61 pipes: stohl flute, 8 feet, 61 pipes; rohr flute, 4 lect, 61 pipes; dulclana, 8 reet, 61 pipes; great guint. 635 feet, 61 pipes: principal, 4 feet, 61 pipes"; 4 feet, 61 pipes; flute harmonia, 4 feet, 61 pipes; principal, 4 reet, 61 pipes; wald flute, 2 reet, 61 pipes: fiagonct, 2 ranks, 122 pipes; cornopeon, 8 feet, 61 pipes; number of pipes In swell organ, 610, (pedal organ and accessories.) Bouble open diapason, 16 reet, 27 pipes: violin bass, 16 feet, 27 pipes; sub-bass, 16 feet, 27 pipes; vlolincello, 8 feet, 27 pipes; couplings for great and swell; couplings for pedal and great; coup lings for pedal and swell; tremulo calcant; ere sendo; dls eresendo; number or pipes in pedal organ, 108; whole nnmbcr orpines In organ, 1,804. As will be seen, the organ will be grand, and Its construction In the church will be such as not to Interfere with the beautirul circular stained-glass window In front of the building and in the Imme diate rear of the choir, but will be so arranged as to form an additional ornament by building In front and around It, thus permitting the lovely rays beaming through the stained-glass window to reflect back the brilliancy which emerges from the surroundings orthe altar. The church will be dedicated June 11, but an opportunity will be afforded on Monday evening next, April 24, to Inspect this beautiful church, at which time Its opening will be celebrated bya grand concert. In which the following profession als and amateurs, among others equally noted, will participate: Pror. S.Schneider, Marine band; Prof. Antonc Gloetzner, Mesdames C. Y. Smith, II. T. Lengarder, I. S. Kimball, and Messrs. Knoop, Noyer, Bishoff, Gannon, Selfert. Rocker, Holer. Miller and Lorenzo Seattoglia. The array of talent which will be presented, together with the fact that the proceeds are to be exclusively devoted towards meeting the demands on the church, should Insure a crowded house. In addi tion to those named In connection with the build ing of the church, the following are deserving of more than ordinary notice for the admirable man ner In which they acquitted themselves In the specialties assigned them: Mr. Harper, carpenter ing; plumbing. Carter, Bride U Co.; gas fixtures, C. V. Davidson, Baltimore; slate root", M. White & Co.; galvanised iron, V,'. F. Gebhnrt; Iron col umns, E. G. Smyser; ornamental painting, Flllppo Costaggoni; pews, Messrs. Lancaster a. Thompson, Richmond, Indiana; painting, Patrick Hlkey. Death of James H. Piatt From our Vermont exchanges we compile tho following particulars of the death recently at Quebec of this old and respected citizen. The 'Woodstock Standard says: "We sorrow to an councc the death of Mr. James II. Piatt, an aged and respected citizen, which occurred in Quebec on the evening of tho 7th, of pneumonia, after an illness or four days. Mr. Flatt was born in Salem, N. Y., August 19, 1709, but when only five years or age removed with his parents to Burlington, Yt., where his lire was passed until his removal to Quebec, In 1859, since when he has resided In that village, and, though not engaged In active business, has identified himself with Its interests, and been active in promoting and generous In assisting all public enterprises. He was a man or snperiour intelligence, sterling Integrity and great determlnationoreharacter;aklnd neighbor, a tender and devoted husband and lather. His familiar form will be missed, and most sadly will be missed the pleasant and hospitable home on whose hearthstone the fire is going out."

He was the warm -personal friend or Henry Clay, Horace Greeley, the late Judge Col lamore and nearly all the public men or his day." "The funeral, which took place on Monday, the 10th Instant, was largely attended, the citizens turning out en lunr, and ma'ny being present from the adjoining towns. The services were con ducted by Iter. Mr. Tomblen, and were v cry Im pressive." Improvements. Inspector Thomas Plowman has Issued the fol. lowing building permits:- T. P.

THE BASTILE DELIVERY. THE TOWER OP TEE HABEAS CORPUS VINDICATION OF PERSONAL LIBERTY BALLET DLBODEH BETOEE JUDGE CAHTTER EMINENT COUNSEL IN THE CASE Imperfect Eetnm of the Sergeaat-at-Arms ABGUME-YT WILL BE HE1BD TO-DAY Yesterday morning at 10 o'clock was the time fixed by Chief Justice Cartter to hear the answer oftheSargeant-at-Armsofthe House of Repre sentatives to the writ of hatect corput served on him to produce the body of Ballet Kllboum be fore his Honor. Some time before the hour set down for the hearing: a large crowd began to as fcmtlclj. (ho Criminal Court-room, where the proceedings were to take place, to witness what might transpire In relation to the matter. Anticipating that there would be a rush, and the gathcringbecome so large as tobe both uncom fortable and Interrupt the business beforo the court, measures were taken to prevent the heavy Influx of persons expected, and bailiffs were placed In charge oftho doors, with Instructions to admit only the officers of the court, members of the bar and those persons Interested personally In the case. Quite a number, however, the lucky ones, had managed to obtain admission before this edict went forth, and with laughing assurance enjoyed tho discomfiture or their friends who were unfor tunately shut out. Within the railing the seats were reserved for the members or the bar, and It Is almost needless to add that " EVEUT AVAILABLE STACE WAS OCCXrlED. Hon. Jeremiah Black, Hon. Daniel Voorhccs, Hon. Matt. I L Carpenter, Hon. Chas. A. Eldrldge, Hon. Noah L. Jeflrles and Walter Davldge, esq., counsel for the petitioner, came Into the court room a Tew minutes after 10 o'clock. Shortly afterwards Sergcant-at-Arms J. W. Thompson, accompanied by his prisoner, Mr. Hallet Kll boum, and followed by his counsel, Hon. Samuel Shellabargcr and Robert Christy, esq., entered and took the seats assigned them. Mr. Kllboum exhibited no decline in either health or spirits by his recent confinement, but, on the contrary, re ceived the congratulations of his numerous friends In his usual free and hearty manner. Neither did he display any disposition by word or action that he had taken the back track, and would sur render to tho demands made upon him to testify. But Instead, showed hi' manliness to stand up and continue the fight for the principle which he contended for as the right or a free. Independent citizen or this country. Chier Justice Cartter said that the time had arrived that was set for hearing the answer or the Sergcant-at-Arms to the writ, and he was pre pared to hear It. Sergeant-at-Arms Thompson then made affida vit to the reply being true to the best or his knowledge and belief, and It was read by Mr. Christy. After reeiting the contents of the petition, with the exception or tho transmitting or the Speaker's certificate to the grand jury and. the Indictment found by that body against Hallet Kllbonrn. the return sets forth the reason orthe petitioner's ar rest and Wltr HE IS STILL HELD IS CCSTODV. It concludes as follows: "Whereupon this respondent, protesting that upon the facts disclosed by the return now made, showing that the relator Is lawfully held by this respondent as Sergcant-at-Arms or the House or Representatives In pursuance and execution or the order ol said House, duly adjudging the re lator to be in contempt of tho authority or said House, the Issuanceof said wrltwaslnderogatlonor the privileges of said House, and that the caption and detention of said relator under and by the au thority or said House as aforesaid, being evidently and conclusively established by the certified rec ords or said House, and appearing on tho faco or the petitlonorsahl relator, no further proceedings or Interference with respondent's custody of the relator can be lawfully had under the said writ of Anient corput ad tutjicenJum, and asks that the relator be remanded to the custody of this re spondent as Sergcant-at-Arms of said House of Representatives as aforesaid, and the said writ or habeat 'corput ad tubjicenaum bo dismissed as Iinprovidently issued. He denies all averments in (his petition Inconsistent with this return." At the conclusion of the reading of the answer, the Court issued the following: OnDEKED ISTO THE JfABSUAL'S CCSTODT. "Ordered, therefore, that the marshal of the United States for the District or Columbia take the body orthe relator Into bis custody, and him safoly keep till further order." Deputy Marshal Philips crossed the court-room to where Mr. Kllboum was, and Informed him or the chargo or authority over his person. The relator accepted the announcement smil ingly, and appeared both pleased and satisfied with the transfer. His Honor suggested that It would facilitate matters considerable and be of advantage to himself irthe counsel on either side would lurnish briefs In the case, and that this morning would be an acceptable time to hear the questions Involved argued. Then they could con tinue from day to day until It closed. Mr. Davldge. At present, your Honor, the record Is not sufficiently made up. Your Honor will recollect that the return Is silent altogether in relation to the proceedings of this court, touch ing the indictment or Mr. Kllboum. The Court. Yes, but that appears In the peti tion. Mr. Davldge. Yes, your Honor, but we have doubts as to whether that is sufficient. We have doubts as to whether we ought not by suggestion, or by replication, bring that matter upon the record properly. With a view, however, to ob viate all dlfflcultr, I have proposed to the gentle men on the other side to satisfy themselves of the fact or the Indictment and the other facts touch ing that department of the case, and to make an admission ofthoso facts, and let them In that way go upon the reccrd. We desire to COMPLETE THE RECORD BEFOrtK U E MOVE. Mr. Shellabargcr. We had supposed, yonr Honor, that the matter of the Indictment proceed ings on the criminal side of this court was matter of record that was susceptible of absolute and conclusft e proof; and that admissions were hardly proper In a matter or that sort. Indeed, I think ike case Is not one where the counsel would be at liberty to make admissions, especially where those admissions relate to matters of record. I trust that counsel will produce the records of the court that may be required by the law of the case, and that we willproceed upon the records. Mr. David ire. The admission asked for Is to the effect that those records be made part of this record. That is the only admission I sought to have those facts set forth In the petition made part or this record. I care nothing about the ad mission or the facts. I simply want such an ad mission as will make all these matters of records a part of this record. Mr. Carpenter. Also, the certificate from the Speaker to the District Attorney. Mr. Davldge. Or course; all that department. Mr. Shellabarger. We wish It to be distinctly understood that In regard to the question or tho competency or any or these proofs we do not walte anything; bnt anything to which tho gen tlemen regard themsehes as entitled under tho statutes let them submit the same to the court, and let the court decide whether such Is compe tent, and whether It makes the proof alleged. The Court. I do not understand that counsel for the petitioner wish to Incorporate that Into the record as conclusive of any rights, but simply as belonging to the Issue for what It Is worth. Mr. Davldge. We can either proceed In tho manner suggested, or under the provision or the Revised Statutes. THAT mOVISIOS 18 TO THE TOLLOWISO EFFECT: "The petitioner, or the party Imprisoned or re strained, may deny any ot the facts set forth In the return, or may allege any other facts that may be material In the case. Said denial or allegation shall be under oath. The return and all sug gestions made a gainst tt may be amended by leave of a court of justice, or Judge, before or after samo are men, so tnat tnercoy tni DC ascertained. Now. we will either nroceed formally under this provision orthe statute, or, by what appears to me to be the better course, by consent to mako these matters set forth In the petition a part of this record, without any admission whatever as to their legal effect. The Court. I understand that counsel agree to the embodiment Into the record of everything that properly belongs to It; not with a view to Its con clusiveness of anything, but subject to its con sideration upon its merits. Mr. Davlage. Undoubtedly. The Court. That is as I understood Mr. Shella bargcr. Mr. Shellabargcr. That Is right. The Court. Now these records are the records of this court. Mr. Davldge. Of the House? The Court, They aro not; but the records hero pertaining to the indictment are the records of this court, of which the court, ir sitting as a court, would take notice as a part of Its own records. It Is a rule acted upon by the bench. Inasmuch as we hare but one clerk, and as these several courts resolve into a system or one court, to take official notice or its records, and to require no proof of the proceedings or one branch of the court In another branch it. As far as the record, there fore, belongs to this system, there Is no trouble about It; but It proposes to engraft the record of the House, which Is another thing. But 1 under stand Mr. Shellabargcr to assent to engrafting that branch or the case upon the record ot THE CASE TOR WHAT IT IS WORTH. Mr. Shellabanrer. That Is rtzht- not walvin? any question as to the competency or relerancy.or materiality that anything that Is a matter or rec ord In this court may be used so far as Mr. Carpenter. Or the House. We want the certificate of the Speaker sending the case to the grand Jury. Mr. Shellabargcr. That Is also made a matter of record In the court, I suppose. The Court. It ought tn be. Mr. Davldge. Will you consent to have It made a part of the record? There can bono objection to It,. Mr. Eldredge. As set forth In our petition? Mr. Davldge. I think we had better proceed regularly. We will, before the court meets again, formally suggest these matters omitted, and pray that they be spread upon the record. The Court. The further hearing of this question will be deferred till to-morrow morning at 10 o'clock. The assemblage in the court-room then began to depart, and the audience thinned out. Mr. Kllbourn-left In company with Marshal Sharp, and surrounded by many friends. On his way out of the building he was busily engaged In hand shaking, and doubtless rejoiced at receiving such a cordial welcome on all sides. He first visited tho marshal's office and was Introduced to Mr. James Sharp, who will hare charge or him until the settlement of the case. After spending; a short time In conversation the two gentlemen proceeded to the residence of Mr. Kllboum, where Ibejwm locate until -tho hearing ends. The change or quarters seems very acceptable to the relator, and his family are rejoiced to have him again with them whatever may be the tight for principle or its termination.' It is evident talt a -reunited happy household will, temporarily at least, came a man to forget the battle or his part tn the strife. 'So can It be said in this' ease: still after the meeting Is over, and the excitement con teauent thereto mus. wav t,.wni vlnl an his armor and begin the contest afresh.
