Master of the 33th Congress. mfttt?? CiihitaSm.?? Write* n History, ?iWiittife^?Kj?6eI?. at Men Who Were leader of the minority was James Brooks, of New York. William B. Allison was a new Representative from Iowa. The Hotspur of the ses? sion was James 'M. Ashley, of Ohio. It was with great difficulty that Thad deus Stevens held him In check. Near Allison sat the military figure of Na? thaniel P. Banks, of Massachusetts, who had entered Congress for the first time since the war. Not far away the stately form of John A. Blnghani, of Ohio, was seen; he had re-entered Congress after serving as Judge ad? vocate of the army. Near by sat James G. Blaine, Just beginning his second term. He made himself fa? mous In this term 'by his tilt with Roscoe Conkllng, in which he com? pared him to a turkey gobbler. The dart ranked in Conkling's bosom, and finally defeated Blalne for the Presi? dency. He lost New York, because the friends of Senator Conkllng, 1n Oneida, voted the Democratic ticket. George S. Boutwell, of Massachusetts, was also a prominent member of the House. John W. Chanler, father of William Astor Chanler, of the present Congress, waa a brilliant Representative from the City of New York, ltoscoe Conk? llng was serving his third term; at the end of t'hc term he became United States Senator. Henry Ij. Dawes, of Massachusetts, was entering his fourth term, and Columbus Delano, of Ohio, was a new member, looking for po? litical fame. Justin S. Morrlll was till in;.: his last term in the House, prior to entering upon Oils long career In tho Senate. Ignatius Donnelly, of Minnesota, was making mud pies in politics regardless of results. One of the brlghtset men in the minority was Charles A. Eldridgc. of Wisconsin. John P. Farnsworth was a prominent member from Illinois. James A. Gar Held was serving his second term from Ohio. Rutherford B. Hayes had become his colleague, and was in? dulging in his first term. Indiana had three, stars In George W. Julian, Michael C. Korr and Godlove S. Orth. The only member of the present House who was tt member of the Thir? ty-ninth Congress is General John II. Ketcham, of New York. It was his first term, and he was sent here because of his brilliant military record. Another man of mark was Samuel S. Marshall, of Illinois, re-elected for the second term. Horace Maynard, of Tennessee, made his first appearance since the war, although not admitted to his seat until near the close of the first session. Philadelphia was represented by Chas. O'Neill, William D. Kelley and L.'ona|d Myers. Tho big man from Maine was not James G. Blaine, but Frederick A. Pike. Samuel J. Randall had just fil? tered upon his second term, and Henry J. Raymond, editor .of the New York Times, was also a member for the sec? ond time. The Orlando Furioso of the Democracy was Andrew Jf- Rogers, of New Jersey. ROUSSEAU'S TILT WITH GRIN NEEI,; ? . General I.ovell H. Rousseau, of Ken? tucky, aulckly became a prominent member. In a discussion over the Freedman's Bureau bill, turning.to Mr. Grinnell, of Iowa, he said: "If you In? tend to arrest white people on the ex parte statement of- negroes and hold them to stilt your convenience for trial, T omiose you; and if you should so ar? rest and ruinlsh nie, I would kill you when you set me nt.liberty." ? To this Mr. Grinnell replied: " The gentleman has degraded his State and uttered a sentiment unworthy of an American officer." "Thi3 assertion," eald Gen. Rousseau, Imported by us, comprising Haviland, Delenirres, Pouat and Guinn China Dinner. Tea, Fish, Game.

R. 37 to 41 Qranby St "Is false and a vile elander and un? worthy to be uttered by any gentleman upon this floor." This encounter led to a personal col? lision between Rousseau and Grinnoll. Rousseau met Grlnnell in the east por-: tieo of tho Capitol. He began to thrash1 hlnilwith a rattan, saying: "Now, you; d?-d puppy and poltroon, look atj yourself." Mr. Grlnnell received half a dozen blows. The only words he uttered were: "I do not want to hurt you." "No," said Rousseau, "I do not cx-| peel you to hurt me, you d-d scound-j rel'; but you tried to Injure me on the door of the House. Now look at your-; self. Whipped here, whipped like nj dog, disgraced and degraded.'-* The House look cognizance of the' ninttcr, but refused to expel Rousseau. Some of the majority sympathized with him on account of his gallant career In the war, and the usual two-thirds ma? jority was Inching. Rousseau was then reprimanded by the Speaker. Tho rep- j Winand was carried by a vote of SO to 30. He endeavored lo evade It by send? ing his resignation aa a Representative to the Governor of Kentucky. The House declared that a member couhi not dissolve his connection under such circumstances without its consent, and Rousseau was forced to the bar to lis? ten to the reprimand of the Speaker. A GREAT TASK I1EFORE IT. The Flf.y-s'xth Congress has a task as great, if not greater, than that of the Thirty-ninth, it cannot adopt the 1 methods of the Thlrty-ri nth, because It [ha? no; a tiro-thirds major ty. If radi? cal measure? are tu be taken the Rued j rules' will become a necessity. Even li I there were a two-third* majority in [ the House there Is no Thnddcus Stev ' ens to d. in nn:e it. The n w Speaker, i however. Is fully as ferruginous In his d sp..sltlon as Thaddeus himself, and with the power placed in his hands by the Reed rules( may accomplish as much. There Is apparently no Ashley i on the iloor to run amuck and endan Kcr party supremacy; but nn untoward spark of political electricity may de velope one, and Die consequences be disastrous. There are undoubtedly men of the Jack Hogers 'stripe among the mlnoiity, but und r the Heed :ul s they lack the ficedoni tnj ij.cd by Jack. Un? der Hie mild reign of Schuylcr Col fax recognition was easily ob.iiined, but undrr the rigid Heed rules it may not be so easy to got the lloor. There may l.e a Bl.iino among th isc serving ilieir Second term] and even a Hose >e Conk II g may bi' hiding in the ligilitive f:i;ze. There 's also a bare posslbll ty that an Igna lus Donncl y and his mud i io* may appear. And Inciden.j may ? c ur that will discount the tilt be? tween Rousseau and Grlnnrll. It is a Congress regierte with oppor? tunities, and one of great possibility and responsibility. Champ C ark may HU the air with quaint utterances, and I">e Armand mesmerize the House with logical sequences. The sophistry and close argument of Joseph W. Bailey will ?gain come In play. The leonine Lentz may shake h;s mane, and ihat human magic lantern, William P. Hepburn, throw exquisite pictures upon the wet sheet of parly politics. Joseph G. Can? non will undoubtedly continue his gracious lessons in the art of states? manship, and the gentle Grosveitor p ay with the zigzag lightning. The offore scent Sereno Paine will act as the Speaker's lieutenant, and at times the sash of oflioer of the day may gird e the waist and run over the shoulder of John Dalzell. Nor should bluff James S. Sherman be missed from the list, nor plausible James D. Richardson. The piquant reminiscences of John Allen will not become a thing of the past. The eloquent Dolllver will also twang the strings of his oratorical lyre to the mandolin accompaniment of Robert G. i Cousins, while bizarre Romulus Z j Elnney, of North Carolina, furnishes o banjo prelude. NEW MEN TO THE FRONT. The stake Is great and the game a close one. Those who win It will carry ! off the Presidency, Invective, metaphor. Imagery, eloquence, rhetoric, Barcasm I and unique sayings may do fine work, but the real work will require speeches abounding In facts, logic and close ar? gument?speeches convincing ns well a* alluring. The conditions must brinS new men to the front. The atmosphere Is clear and stars of the first magnitude are in demand. A fe\V are already ' twinkling on the horizon. The trend~of event? may 6end them to the zenith. An aerolite may fly athwart the milky way and shoot downward toward the horizon at any time, leaving a train of sparks In its wake, but It will quickly drop into darkness and be lost! Certain is It there are great time* ahead. The national theatre is open, the curtain is rrlsed, the orchestra' Is playing, and the actors nre In the green room, wailing their cum. The Ameri? can people are the spectators, and the players will be awarded applause or hisses, according to their deserts. AMOS J. CUMMINQS.
