The Journal, having authority from Gov
ernor Morton to deny as lake that which It
published a few days before in ita own col
umn, that ho favored a repeal of the re-
utuption act, like a truo organ, change it
boa on the finance question. In opening
Out oq the financial question It claims the
riht 16 change ita policy aa often as it may
ele- t. but rather congratulated itself that it
oco-:;ies tto earne ground that it did a lew
Kwtkiggo, Mr. Morton evidently having
givf-u that permission.
Let us examine the true inwardness of
the Journal's position on finance a it now
dsnaes it. The Sentinel venture to say
th it its tails are not yet properly set to
c-.itch the greenback breeze tbat is blowiDg
In the West. The people will not be able to
underst tad what the Journal means when
it iys it does cot favor the repeal ol the re
u caption act, and still opposes contraction of
the currency. The people will not believe
that the Journal favors letting the currency
alone at its preaeui volume when greenbacks
are being retired everyday by the operation
of tbe resumption law. They will not te
livj that tuo Journal favors the retirement
Of the national btnk currency, when it sets
up the barrier that only ?100,000,000 ol
greenbacks can be issued, as the peo
ple know full well tbat tte same
power that limited the greenback
Isnva to $400,000,000 could repeal the
liaiitiuz clause as they did after the former
Im'jm, which, also, had similar limiting
cUai. In 'act, every position that the
Jor.mal assumes is contradictory and
sho-s clearly tbat it Is simply trim
ming to catch the unwary at the sugges
tion ol Mr. Morton. In this state
the Journal very well knows that three-lourtb-of
its own pRrty are now clearly
cooiiuittol to the greenback policy, acd this
effort Is a mere subterfuge to prevent their
reatuncinc a party allegiance ti.at is
pursuing steadily contraction, disturbing
Commerce and producing the ruin of tous
n is. The people will not trust to a lead
ership o equivocal; that openly professes to
be read v to change in a fortnight.
Bishop Gilbert Haven, in a religious
g itbaring at Beaton of preachers and Sunday-hool
workers, proposed an Indorse-
xnsat of Grant for a third term as a measure
of nttlonal tafety. This is a very queer
movement, and that auch a resolution
ahou'.d have passed unanimously is passing
strsrge. Religious bodies, In times of na
tional danger, have often deemed It neces
aary that they should not meet without
giving encouragement and sympathy to the
aolJ'ero in the Held and to the cabinet at
home, but that there is any sort of religious
necessity for the re-election of Mr. Grant
aa president of the United States is so su
premely ridiculous that we can scarcely
cred-.t the telegraphic reports of the meeting.
Thicks have come to a pretty pass 11 Mr.
Grant has become a religious necessity, or
h:s political supremacy longer to be desired.
Whi'e the very air of the whole country
in3!'.s of fraud and corruption; while the
very white house itself has been invaded by
the bailiff of justice, and arrests are screened
by the intervention of a court martial, and
while habits of personal infirmity
are notorious, for a body of Chris
tian to go out of their way to declare
that hit further preferment is a necessity
lor the safety of the country is n satire upon
religion, and a scandal upon the character
Of fas virtuous and eminent statesmen of
both parties of the country. Mr. Grant is
cot the only man in a population of forty
mi'.Ücus of people that can save our liber
ties. Mr. Grant is a tolerably good judge of
horse?, was a fair toldier, but he has not
proved in atatesmacsblp tbat the world was
awaiting bis coming to rule in America in
order that tuo mUIsclum might be statted.
Ttere wero many resolutions tbat
iniht have been more appropriate for the
religious meoting over which Bishop Haven
presided. They might have resolved that
dnnkenrem is a great sin, tbat evil associ
ations have demoralizing eflects, that steal
ing U forbidden by jositive commandment,
that shielding iniquity is partaking in the
oSease, sni do23ns of other things perti
nent somewhat ts the public and private
character or a ruler. But to pass by such
legitimate thenars, sins of the day, sins in
high places, and simply say that Grant Is a
necessity, would appear a prostitution ol
religious functions, an Intrusion of politi
cal sentiment averse to the moral instincts
and religious sensibility of the people,
clothed In religious garb, that can but
awaken disgust In three-fourths, if not nine
totitha, of the people of the whole land.

THE LOUISIANA QUESTION.
Mr. Wood.t of New York, objected to
Mr. Morey, of Louialana, and Mr. Gar
field, of Oslo, objected to Mr. Good, of Vir
ginia. 1 berefore there gentlemen were not per
milted to qualify. Subsequently Mr. Wood of
fered a resolution referring the credentials of
Measrs. Morey and Hpencef to the committee
onelfctions with instructions to report which
of them was entitled to the seat. lie said that
he did not propose to raise the que at Ion as to who
was the legal governor ol lxuliana. 1 1 waa not
pertinent to this inquiry to determine that
question, the sole and exe nsive question blng
aa to what form of credentials the respective
Mr. Blaine declared that there was no more of
ficial ground for apeaking of John Mcknery as
the governor or Ituliilana than there was for eo
speaking of Mr. Wood of New York. No depart
ment of the government had ever recognized
Mch-nery, and Uie House last seKslon, by a very
large vote, to which many gentlemen of the
Democratic aide of ths House were consenting
and many of them anxious that the resolution
should pa8, solemnly recognized Kellogg
as the governor m IxjuUtanaand for the gentle
man fiom New Yotk to make a statement that
the governoranlp ot Louisiana was Uli a mat
ter of doubt or was still in suspense was to placs
the House in a wrong position. He thought that
the clerk woold have been perfectly Justified in
tearing up as waste paper the credentials signed
byMcttnery. He trusted that the gentleman
from New York did not wish to open the whole
Louisiana caae on ttiis question.
Mr. Wood replied that the papers In the case
of all the members from Louisiana were them
aelves a sufficient answer to the gentleman.
For if there was no poaalble question as to who
was governor of Louisiana, why was it that ail
the members of that state bad deemed it neces
sary ts obtain the certificate of McEaerj , They
had all deemed It -Important to come here
clothed with certificates from each of
these so-called ' governors. He dK
not propose to ' raise ' tbe . inquiry
as to who waa or who was not governor of
lionlalana. The question to be determined in
the first place waa whether Morey presented cre
dentials that entitled him to a seat on this floor.
Mr. Wheeler said that be had trusted that the
question aa to who was governor of Louialana
had been net at rest, at leaat until the next gen
eral election, and regretted that for a paltry ad
vantage it should be again raised. Not only had
Kellogg been recognized aa governor of
lionlalana by the president of tbe
United States and by both houaes
but also by the people of Louisiana, and by a
MOlemn statuta paaved by ita leglalatnre at Its
extra aeaalon held last April. Beaidea, thia man
Kpeneerhad absolutely foreclosed himself by
having made himself a contestant.
Mr. Frye, of Maine fs there on reesrd since
the election held in ISTi, In Louialana. a tingle
official act ol MoEnery except this single one
f signing those certificates.
Mr. Wheeler Not one.
Mr. Wood remarked tbat
THR QUESTION SETTLED
at tbe last sesslen had been confined entirely to
the relations of the legislature, and not to the
election of the governor.
Mr. Lamar said that tbe clerk of the House had
made known to tbe House the existence of con
troversy not only with reference to the merits of
the question, but with refeienoe to the prima
facie right to a seat in the House. Tbe
Iiouse was in poaae&alon of the fact thnt
there was auch a controversy. It
might be a very simple and a very
intelligible riurstlon.but still it was a question
of law aa to whether this certificate was aigned
Dy tue proper governor or not. it nad been
rrystalir.ed into a regular parliamentary law
that a question involving a prima facie right, as
well aa the merita of th race, should be reierred
tothe committee on elections.
Mr. Rialne sked Mr, Lamar whether. In the
history of the House, he kuew of any
caae wbere the credentials of a
member aizned by a pretended
governor, who had never been recognized aa
governor by any department of the United
Mate or by his own state, had been referred to
a omro lllee. He trusted that hla friend, La
mar, with his well-known moderation, wou'd
restrain his party from placing on record such
an onirage, not only on state rights, of which he
(Lamar) waa ancii an exam pi ax aud advocate,
but on the rales of common decency as well.
Mr. Lamar remarked that the question
whether oneof these pretended governors waa
the real governor, or not.Jwaa the very question
to be reierred f o t he com m utee.
Mr. Blaine Then 1 understand the Rontleman
to mean tbat. thin la a formal opening of tbe
whole Louie! una caxe and not merely the ques
tion 88 tO the seat ol a member.
Mr. Lamar The gentleman simply under-
RUnd that a qumtlon which the c erlt of the
House haa remitted to theHouae.whether or not
it lnrolves other questions as tn the validity of
the gubernatorial incumbent of LoiUiana. is a
question which oiv.'ht not to be decided In
formally on the mere aeatlng of a member, but
ought to be formally referred to the committee
and gravely and maturely decided.
Mr. Blaine aaked whether It waa not
A MATTER OF HISTORY
that last year, in what was known as the Louis
iana adjuatment, it waa perfectly understood
that the vote of the House declaring Kellogg to
be governor was a final settlement, and whether
the venerable gentleman from Georgia,
(Stephens) the very Nestor of the dem-
crratlc party, bad not voted with
the republicans, In order, avowedly,
that it might be a final settlement? Did his hon
orable friend (Mr. Lamar) come here now to
hear a movement to trample on the other side
that agreement and to reopen the whole case?
Mr. Lamar admitted mat mere nad been
a compromise at the laat aession and that
thst compromise did acknowledge Kellot;;
as tbe acting governor of Louisiana. He hoped
that the geulleman from Itew tork (Wood)
would, acting on the suggestion of .Mr. Hoar, of
Massachusetts. modify his resolution by
omitting the preamble and merely referring the
matter to the committee on e'ecttons, with in
structions to report on the prima facia case.
Mr. Wood modified bis resolution accord
ingly. The clerk of the House, with the permission of
the House. made the following statement: Th
controUlng fct which In my Jndgment required I
me to accept the Kellogg certlucates was mat
prior to the making up of the roll on the 4th of
March laat, there had been a recogni
tion by the Honse of Representatives
of William Pitt Kcllozg as governor of
Louisiana, and at that time he was de facto
governor of the at ate. in view of his recogni
tion oy the executive branches of the govern
ment, by all the departments of the govern
ment and by the part of the legislative oransh
of th government to which the clerk is re
fiponslb.e. 1 felt myself absolutely Included, and
therefore I inserted the names returned by Gov.
Kellogs without any reference whatever to the
political aspect of tbe case..
After a farther discuslou, participated in by
Messrs. Holman.of Ind., Banks, Cox and Jones,
of N. II., the previous question was teconded.
The main question was ordered, ayes 123, nays
lot. The question was then put on the resolu
tion, and It vas rejtcted.
Mr. Klaine then moved that Frank Morey,
having presented credentials s:gned in due
form by Gov. Kellogg, be sworn in as a member.
Mr. Uandall auggeated to strike out of the mo
tion that part recognizln Kellogg as governor.
Mr. Llalnc said that he was perfectly willing
todo fo, and, having so modified the motion, it
was agreed to without a division, and
MR. MOREY WAS BWOBJf
in a) a member.
The question as to the light of Mr.
Uoode, of Virginia, was next taken
up, and after a short discussion
Uoode was sworn as a member, taking tbe mod
ified oath. The question as to the vacancy In
tbe thirty -third district of New York was then
taken up, and, after statements by Messrs.
Wheeler, Norton and Cox, the representative
elect was sworn in, and ths technical
question Involved in the caae was
referred to the committee oa elections. The
delegates from the territories were then called
and sworn with the Ironclad oath.
'Mr. Lamar then offered a resolution dcc'arlng
the following persons officers of the House:
Clerk, Geo. M. Adams, of Kentucky: ser-geant-al-arma.
Jno. G. Thompson, of Ohio;
doorkeeper, Lafayette H. Fltzhngh, of Texas:
postmaster. James M. Stewart, of Virginia, and
chaplain, the I lev. J. ;L. Townsend, lnstrictof
Mr. Wheeler offered an amendment substitut
ing the names of the present Incumbents of
those officers, MoPberson, Old way, ttherwood
The amendment was rejected and the original
resolution adopted.' The newly elected otlicers
were then sworn in, Fiuhuh and Btewaii
taking the modified oath.
A message was sent to the Senate to inform
that body tbat trie Houee was organ
ize! and ready for business. A committee
was appointed to Join a like committee on tbe
part of the Senate to wait upon the president
and Inform him that congreaa waa now in ses
sion and ready to receive any communication
that he mtht te pleased to make. Messrs. Cox,
Knott, of Kentucky, and Blaine were appointed
as auch committee.
Mr. liandall offered resolutions adopting the
rules of the House in the Forty-third Congress
an tbe rules of the present House, except rules
166 acd 167, and also providing
for the appointment of a com
mittee on ru'es, to consist of the speaker and
four members. Kulea 164 and 1(57 are those
adopted In the laat congress, renn I ring motions
to suspend the rules to be seconded by a major
ity, aud 'orbidding the entertainment of dila
tory motion a.
Mr. Garfield suggested that by immemorial
usage the rules of the preceding lloases became
the rulea of this House without any special mo
tion to that effect.
Mr. Randall replied that immemorial usage
might do for tbe repuollsan side of
the House but not . for the democratic
side, which required a strict construction of the
Mr. Garfield, contemptuously-Oh yes?
The resolutions were adopted, and then
it was ordered that ' the usual draw
ing for seats should take place
at 1 o'clock to-morrow. The Honse then
adjourn rd. Many members, conspicuous araocg
them Mr. Blaine, stepped up to the speaker's
chasr and took this opportunity of felicitating
bim on his election and on the manner in
which he had discharged his drat day's duties.
Among the new model hats for ladies

Mr. John II. Sullivan informs na that the
board of director of the Louisville narrow
eange railroad Lave instructed him to pre
pare an amendment to the charter of the
company terminating the road at Milton
Ky., a point opposite thia city. We under
stand from Mr. S. tbat this is done with a
Tiew of ultimately crossing the rirer at this
city either by means at a bridge or transfer
boats, and continuing the road up tbe river
on the Indiana aide. It la generally
undeiKtood by railroad men who have
been over the ground, that the road from
this point to Cincinnati can be made much
cheaper on thia side of the river than tbe
other. If tbls can be accomplished, we can
see bow it will prove a benefit to Madison.
Not so much from tbe fact that tbe road is
to cross here, but in tbe almost absolute
certainty that it would lead to the building
of other narrow-gauge roada front this city
in different directions out into the richest
portion of this and the ad joining counties.
Already we bear the subject discussed of a
nnrrow-gaage road from this city to the
coal fields of Clay county, passing through
Hanover, Kent, Woostertown, Frankfort,
and ibe richest portions of Jackson county.
It is tald that these roada can te built at
a very low rate when compared with the
broad gauge roajj. A number ot these
roads leading into the city would work an
immense advantage to us in the way of
bringing tbe farmers' produce to this mar
ket, eltner tor sale or shipment elsewhere,
and furnishing cheap transportation for the
tlmter that grows in abundance all around
us, but too far off to to available at tbe

THE MAGNETIC SYSTEM.
Drs. Darrin it Merrill's practice la mostly in
diseases regarded as Incurable. Their treatment
la In tome ret recta peculiar to themselves, and
although there have beea men In all age who
have had the same magnetic power over dis
eases, both of the body and mind, yet few have
seemed to poe5s It to such an extent tat nearly
all diseases. ' Recognising the most commend
able Idea and principles of the prevailing
metbeds of practice, and often making use of
them, they do not so rauch come In conflict
with other modes aa they asatst and aurpasa

Store a lost member Of the body, nor perform
other impossibilities: bat it will in a majority
of cases give relief and often cure where other
remedies have failed. Are medicines needed?
Joined with magnetism they will accomplish
Creater and quicker results tban can be obtained
from drugs alone. Not only is its power ac
knowledged by eminent physicians of every
other school of practice, but they frequently re
ceive the treatment for themselves and fami
lies, as well as recommend it to their patients.
But the only method by which those not fa
miliar with the system can Judge of ita merits
is by its results. During the past month we
have several times published individual cases
of unquestionable authenticity, showing tbe re
markable nature and permanency of their
cures. ow, In order to show to some degree
tbe varied character of the maladies that come
under their care, we give a list of the diseases ac
tually treated by them since their arrival in
this city four weeks ago. merely remarking
that no one of the number bas received six con
