The River and Harbor bill, by pre
vious agreement, displaced the Tar
iff bill in the Senate to-day.
Speaker Heed will have many
things to account for in the general
day of reckoning, which comes to
all men; but if he persists in his
efforts to prevent an appropriation
being made to erect a new Govern
ment printing office, and an accident
occurs and it is liable any time, in
the present death traps resulting in
the loss of many precious lives that
will be the most terrible of all. The
old building now used has been
pronounced dangerous to health and
life by every competent architect
who has examined it, and there have
been a number of them, its floors
settle as much as three inches when
heavily loaded as they are almost
constantly. The Senate passed an
amendment to an appropriation bill
providing for a new bidding: but by
order of Speaker Reed the House
refused to concur.

The subject of most interest before
the Lower house of Congress at
present, is the code of Rules, for the
government of that body.
The reply of Mr. Breckinridge to
Gen. Henderson caused quite a sen
satmn in the House, not only for
what he said, but by his ability to
attract ones attention. He said that
friction between the Speaker and the
members of the House has been
predicted when the new code of
Rules was adopted. He was not now
surprised when the Speaker's par
tiality was called in question.| But the

There was great laughter in the
House when he contrasted the diff
of the rulings by Speaker
Reed and those of Mr. Carlisle and
Randall.
He said that he had no criticism
to make upon the Speaker. If the our
gentlemen, on the other side were
satisfied wffh that officer, "Heaven
forbid that he should remove that
satisfaction. If they were willing to
accept the Speaker as a fair type of
their party he would enter no diss

premaey. He had been the republi

the chair, and he had exercised that

His official relations with us, the
Sheriffs of his District were marked
by the highest courtesy, and the
most kindly consideration. He ad
ministered the law with a firm and
impartial hand, wisely and stron-ly
and with such dispatch of the public
business, as to almost clear

people of the District thousands of
dollars annually,
His court was a model of order, ho
obeyed the law himself and respect
e .l the place of its administration
and he taught others to obey and
respect as lie did himself. His course
as a Judge pillared up the highest
and best interest of society, and lent
honor and dignity to the Bench, and
we can not allow this sa 1 occasion to
