The House of Representatives met to-day at the usual hour, and immediately resumed the discussion of Mr. Clark's resolution touching the unfitness of such candidates an had endorsed the treasonable seutiments of the Black Re publican circular. No vote was taken for Speaker, nor was any attempted. It is now believed that another week will be consumed by political disputes aud personal explanations. * Proceedings of the Sknatr. In the Senate Mr. Ivcrson of Georgia made a personal explanation. In the course of which he said that in the remarks he made the other day upon the nnsouudness of the Democratic party, North, ho had not intended to charge Senators or leading meu of the party with complicity in the Johu Brown foray, but he merely intetided to say that the position of Senator Douglaa in regard to the territorial rights of the Southern people was not sound, and a large portion of the Democrats, agree with Douglas upon that question. Mr. Bigler defended the Northern Democracy from the charge of leaning towards Abolition ism, Johnson, of Tennessee, made a speech against the Republicans aud in defence of the Union.— He denounced John Brown and his connitators as thieves and murderers, lie also criticised Senator Seward's Rochester speech very severe ly, alter which the Senate adjourned. Washington , Dec. 13. In the lluti6c, yesterday, Mr. Stuwart, of Maryland, made a firm and temperate speech in defence of Southern rights. Messrs. Ilaskin, of New York, and Hickman, of Pennsylvania, made brief speeches in justi fication of their refusal to act with the Demo cratic party in the organization ot the House. Another ballot for Speaker of the llouso was called for, but Mr. Clarke, of Missouri, pro tested against it, and said ho would resist to the \i I most any attempt to proceed to the elec tion of Speaker. u.

Mayor Lincoln was re-elected Mayor of tlii* iity to-day by about liiuO majority. A majori ty of the Common Council of the Lincoln stripe are also elected. A Great Cry and Little Wool. From the day on which, iu the month of April last, a meeting was called at Odd Fel lows' Hall in this city, by one hundred and one individuals styling themselves Democrats, until that ou which our late general election was held, the people of this Parish, and of ihe State at large, have been amused with the antics of insignificant handful of political adventurers composed of one or two disappointed aspirants, aud a tail of ungrateful office holders, who have years past been growing fat on office ob tained at the hand.s of the Democratic parly of Louisiana, aud whom much prosperity has driv en to the hallucination that they had the desti ny of their benefactors iu their hands, and could shape the action of a great aud powerful political organization to their caprices or their pecuniary iuterests. That assemblage, while clamoring against the ancient and well known usages of the Demeeratic party in this city, and denouncing in ribald and shamefully false terms, the wise aud patriotic Administration of Mr. Buchanan, also nnnouueed a policy—if so pitiful a squad could be supposed to have i policy—with regard to the legislative poweri existing in the inhabitants of the organized ter ritorics of the United States, which brings its propounders so near the Black Republican par ty that practically there is no difference be tween them, so far as the equal rights of the slaveholding Stales in the common property of the Federal Union is concerned. Nevertheless, the concocters of this scheme of defection and disorganization, trusting either to the forbearance of the real Democracy, or to the liberal credulity of our'population, had the boldnerw to proclaim themselves the States' Rights Democracy of Louisiana, and to enter into a contest with the friends of the Adminis tration on the issue which they had framed against it. Their first essay was to elect a del egation to the State Democratic Convention, held at Baton Rouge on the fourth Monday i May ; their delegates were refused seats in its deliberations, and their leader, denied the sym pathy of any portion of the country Democracy, quitted Baton Rouge in dudgeon aud disgust, aud returned home, to use a homely old exprès sion, " with a flea in his ear." But defeat and the repudiation of hi« policy by those to whom he had fondly looked for aid and encourage ment, did not teach him either common sense or moderation ; for he next proceeded to the establishment of a club, which, in order to en trap the unwary, was called *' the titatcs' Rights Democratic Club," which, it is to be supposed he harangued in his most eloquent manner, in order to prepare and discipline it in his darling project ot killiug off a party whose only offense as regarded himself was, that ho was denied that measure of honors and influence iu its councils which it accorded others, whom it took the lib erty of believing better qualified for high sta tion, and more reliable in the performance of their duties. Small as were its numbers this club was c oon divided, a-it is rumored, bccause the self-elected leader was too tyranical and imperious in hi* temper aud demnnds to be lon ger endured by those who retained any spirit of independence or any lingering feeling of at tachment to their former political association* Hencejhe formation of the Louisiana Demo cratic Association, and the division of the al ready diminutive force of the Olsorganiseis into two separate camps. The States' Rights Club, sometime in the summer, enacted the farce of nominating a can didate for Congress, representing Us very pe culiar views, in the person of a worthy and os inablc gentleman in private life. From the lime he accepted the nomination, conferred un der such auspices, the public car was repeated ly assured that his election was next to certain; nnd w hen the true Democrats of the District imbled inCouveutiou, and put forward candidate representing ils views, the soi diMant •States' Rights men affected much amusement at such temerity, and ridiculed the Idea of the success of the nominee, piirticuluriy in the par ishes or JMaiiuemines aud St. Bernard, thu for mer of which, it was alleged, wt uld give the States' Rights nominee an overwhelming ma jority. During the cam ass Mr. Thos. Jefferson Durant, the Opposition candidate for Attorney General of the State, in one, at least, of those turgid harangues which he evidently thought to be modeled upon the most graceful nnd pow erful orations delivered by Cicero in the old Roman days, wert so fur as to assert that hud the Democracy, which stood by its old colors, dared to meet the forces of the Odd Fellows' Hull meeting on the snme tiny and at the same places, the latter would have beaten tlicin two votes to one In the election of delegates to the Baton Rouge Convention. Coming from a gentleman whose every day professional life teaches him the grout value of facts iu argu ment, this assertion fell rather slurliiugly o. the curs of those who remembered Die numbe of voles polled at the respuilve elections fo those delegates ; and hud the distinguished or ator been nsked l'or a moment to suspend his declarations ol rhapsodical enthusinsm, in his new character as an Opposition orator, and his poetical quotations to back them, and to bring forward facts (o verify his assertions on this point, we venture tu believe that he would have been sadly at a loss to cuinply with the demand. Having thus shown what were the preten sions of Hie virtuous '• rurlllculors " of New Orleans Democracy before the election came >11, we come now to the result; and hero wo ulll confine ourselves lo the First Congression al District, as affording the oient-est proof of llielr strength, for in the upper portions of the ly they ran no candidates, and most likely merged their vote In that of the Opposition, Beginning with the Eighth City l'reoincl, we And tile following to have been the respect! otes of M cimi & Emile LiiSeri, the regular Dé mocratie, and Charles Bienvenu, the "filuUV Rights" nominee for Congress: there being two polls iu inch precinct ; Bienvenue, S. R. Dem. Eighth Ninth : Tenth Eleventh : Twelfth : Thii teen th : Fourteenth Fifteenth : Sixteenth : Seventeenth Eighteenth: Nineteenth: Twentieth : Twenty-First Algiers : Total : LaSere, Dem. 213 1329 Total : It will thus bo city of New Grl« 213 1329 n that In the parish nnd I, thu vole of Mr. LaSere was more than six timku us great as that of his so called Slate»' Rights opponent. In the par ish of St. Bernard the figure« stood, as well wc remember, (having mislaid the returns) La Sere lull, Bienvenu 44, a proportion or more than three lo one. From ritupieiniucs purisii the uDIcial returns of this cleollou are still most unaccountably missing, but from the accounts which have come to hand as lo the result I most of the precincts, Mr. jÄSoro's majority over Mr. Bienvenu is in almost as great, if nul renliy as great, a proportion us it was in the cily. We do not believe tlmt the latter genllc man obtained lour hundred votes in the entire District ; and, from information we have . tallied, not n few or those actually cast ror h were given In fulfillment or promises mntlc be lore Mr. LaScrc wus nominated, und not through sympathy with the Odd Fellows' Hall move ment. Before concluding, we wish to bring lo the notice or the Democracy or the Slate another significant tact. The Odd Fellows' llall Puri fiers not finding in the city any one witli a po litical character sufficiently unspotted and pur« Tor their purposes, sent down to l'luipieiniues, anil round, at Deer Range .Plantation, another Cinclnnatus, in the person of Maunsel White, and brought him up lo town lu preside at their meeting. One would have thought that (his venerable gentleman possessed, in an unlimited degree, the personal anil political esteem of Iiis fellow parishioners, nnd they would be glad to sei7.e any occasion to do him all honor. What then was the astonishment or the general pub lie, at finding that lie bad obtained from them less than sixty votes, although he was nomina ted for the State Senate by this same virtuous and powerful States' Kighls party, being badly beaten by Ihe regular Demoeratié nominee, Mr. Lawrence. We trust that these rucls will not be without weight ou the minds ofDimocrats. particular]; of our country friends, and (hat hsi cal M I N »'IH ■ 1 III ADVERTISING RATES.

A Tribute to Washington Irving* The following graceful tribute to tho la mented In lug appours iu tho Boston Courier, aud is probably from the peu of Mr. George S. Hillard : Irving has long been the most populur of our American authors ; and on this account there Is leas ueed of dwelling at length upon the peculiar characteristics of his exquisite geulu». Wo can hardly llatter ourselves that these words of ours will lu» rend by any one not familiar with his delightful writings. We should bu but telling a thrice-told tale if we should attempt to do justice to the magic grace of his stylo, his easy and flowing narrative? his delicious humor, and hit* tenderness aud sweetness of B'uliment. Besides these peculiar literary merits, there is au indefinable charm in his writings, infused from his own personal cha raeler. With him the style was Indeed the man t His works are penetrated with that kindliness, gentleness and cordiality which were reeognized in his manners aud bearing, by all who hud the privilege of approach to his person. There was no gall in his ink, because there was none iu hia blood. Knvy, malice aud hatred never knock" ed at the door of his heart. Mo lYovcr lost M friend, or made an aneiny. His nature was genial, sympathetic and sweet L. soured by no disappointments, wanted by no stormy passion«. And esteem and respect followed him no less Few men of letters had ever led rnoro honor able and reputable lives than he. In his carcer there was nothing for a friend to suppress, nor an cucmy—had lie had one— to proclaim, Hlr had none of the Irregular Impulses by which men or genius are so often led astray, and no* thing of that weakness of character which nol »infrequently accompanies the most brilliant endowments. Heir to all tho graceful genius and delicate humor of Addison and Goldsmith, he escaped the coldness of the former, and stlÜ« more the moral obliquities of thV» latter', /hid* his life, now that it has been brought to a close, may be pronounced (o ImVn been eminently lmppy. Fame was his, ah'J love and honor; hi his latter years, exulted iritd reverencc. How serene aud beautit\il Wero his declining years; how graced and dignified with everything that should accompany old age I tho favor wttfe which his countrymen received Iiis latest pro ductions was an earnest and'antldlpfillbn of the unbiased judgment of posterity, lîven in bis lifetime, the spot where he lived became an ob ject of interest second only to Mount Veruon.
