Mr. nelly asEeo an order for the produc tion of the commission and resignation Watts from the fostomce Department also tnat senator Mitcneu and Mr. watts might be subpoenaed as witnesses. Judge Clifford asked if the witnesses were within reach. Senators Mitchell said they were both the room. The orders in both cases were granted, and at the request of Senator Kelly, who was to open lor the objectors, a recess of half an hour was taken to allow him procure the necessary books, etc. The commission was called to order again at 2:10 o'clock, and was addressed on behalf of the Democrats by Senator Kelly, Repre sentative Jenks, and Judge Hoadly, argued the Commiss'on had excluded evidence in the Florida and Louisiana because it was wtthout judicial power, said without the exercise of judicial power you can not deprive Hideo andrlendricksof one vote cast for them in Oregon. Without exercise of judicial poweryou can not award it to Hayes and wneeier. Senator Mitchell and Mr. Lawrence sented objections on oenaii oi the ttepubl cans, arguing tnat mere was no law Oregon authorizing the Governor to a minority candidate elected, and that maior nart of electors Dresent is a nnornm. Stanley Matthews opened the argument when the Commission met on February and spoke for nearly two hours in opposi tion to the Cronin certificate. He said the law of Oregon required that the votes Electors should be given, received, returned and canvassed, the same as for members Congress; and in the caseof members Congress, it was made the duty of the Secre tary of State to canvass the votes, and there the statutory directions end. The statute in relation to Elec tors further provided that the Secretary of State should certify two lists, showing who had received the highest number votes, and there the canvass ended. The Constitution and law stamped that record the legal and constitutional result of the election. The certificate of the Governor was sought to be intruded here aa a substi tute for the canvass. It was signed by the Secretary of State simply as an attesting witness, and not as a canvasser of votes. The eertincate oi tne uovernor of Oregon did not conform to the statues of the United States or of Oregon. Mr. Matthews combatted the proposition that the ineligibility of Watt made a non- election, or that the votes cast tor an ineli gible candidate were void. He also con tended mat tne r.ngnsu aecisiona, wnica declared the candidate who was eligible bnt received a less number of votes than his ineligible opponent elected, had not been adopted as the American rule, wnicn was that, when sucn a case occurred, neither was entitled to the office. When Mr. Matthews concluded, inquiry waa made as to whether tne rostmaster General was present in response to the sum mons, with papers and records regarding Watts. Mr. Tyner was not in the Court room, so a recess was taken until a quarter to one. The Democrats expect to prove that Watts acted aa Postmaster on the day he voted in the Electoral College. Com mission took a recess. After recess, proofs of Watts'a resignation as Postmaster were placed before the Commission. Speech's were made by Messrs. Evarts and Merrick, and the Commission adjourned till neatt day. On February 23, the Electoral Commission reassembled In secret session at 10:30, and remained in consultation on the Oregon case four hours and a halt. At three o'ciocK, the discussion being concluded, and Senator Thurman not having been able to attend the sitting on account ot Ulness, a recess wss taken in order to ascertain whether he would prefer coming to the Capitol or that the com mission should proceed to his residence and there transact the business incident to taking his vote. A committee consisting of Senators Bay ard and Frelinghuysen was appointed for this purpose, and reported in due time that Senator Thurman preferred to receive the commission at his house. At four o'clock, therefore, the other members of the commis sion proceeded to 8enator Thurman's resi dence. Senator Thurman was found con fined to his bed, where he remained during the proceedings of the commission. The commission was formally called to order by Justice Clifford, President. Mr Edmunds offered the following, and it was finally adopted yeas, IS; nays, none: Baolved, That the certificate signed by E. A. Cronin, J,N. T. Miller, and John Parker, purporting to cast the Electoral vote of the State of Oregon, does not contain or certify the constitutional votes to which the State is entitled.

The decision of the commission was then drawn np and signed by the eight members voting in the affirmative. Congress in Joint Convention. of as a six the in the in all be the to At one o'clock, February 20, the debate on the Louisiana question was brougnt to a close in the House, and the ayes and nays were then ordered on the original resolu tion, declaring that the vote of Louisiana, as decided by the Commission, shall not be counted, Mr. Hurlburt having withdrawn his amendment to strike out the word "not" yeas 172, nays 99. The House having dis posed of the resolution, joint convention was resumed at 1:45. The Houses had not con curred in rejecting the decision. Mr Ferry --J lTl i-J 1 .1; jl. said it wouiu eutnu, suu uirecieu tnat tne .ii,t vote, f TniBina be onnntd f, Hayes and Wbeeter. The count then pro- ceeded quietly, Maine being the next State, Her 7 votes were entered lor Haves; Mary- land, 8 for Tilden; Massachusetts, 13 for Hayes. When Michigan was reached, Tucxer, oi Virginia, objected to counting the vote ot one ot tne Electors, on the ground that he was a United States Com missioner on the seventh of November. Upon this the Houses separated. After con siderable discussion in the Senate, a resolu tion deolaring that the votes of Michigan should be counted was carried unanimously, The House also passed a resolution in favor of counting the votes of Michigan, and the two Houses again met in joint convention and the eleven votes of Michigan were counted for Hayes and Wheeler. When Nevada was reached. Mr. 8pringer objected to the count of one of the three votes ot that State, on the ground that an Elector, R. M. Daggett, was, at the time of his appointment, and lor a long time previously, and there after continued to be, a United States Com missioner for the Circuit and District Courts of the United States in the District of Ne vada; and the two Houses again separated. Un i ebruary Zl, Mr. springer, who made the objections to counting the vote Nevada before the Joint Convention, when called upon was forced to tell the House that he had no evidence whatever to sustain his objection. After this statement a reso lution to count the vote was agreed to with out division, and notice sent to the Senate that the House was ready to proceed with the count At 11 :45 the Senate made appearance, and the Joint Convention was called to order. The votes of the States of Nevada. New Jersey New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina and Ohio were counted. The reading of the papers in full being omitted, by consent ntteen minutes only were occu pied in opening and counting the votes these six states.

This certificate gives two votes to Hayes w neeler, ana one vote to Tilden Hendricks. Senator Mitchell presented objections tne eertincate ol Uronin Miller and Parker. Mr. Kelly presented objections to Republican certificate; and Mr. Lawrence presented further objections to the Cronin certificate, signed by Senators and members.

The! report further sets forth that election of Watts by the other two members Irtth ft.C The grounds for this decision, so far as concern tne engiointy ot watts, are the certificate ef the Governor so far as same is not founded npon the action of canvassing or returning authority, provided for by the laws of the State, which authority, in tne case oi vregon, is neia to oe Secretary of State. The report takes the ground that it is. not sential to snow tnat an Elector eligible on the 7th of November, providing it be shown that he eligible when he cast his vote in the College, and the fact appears that alleged ineligible Elector, Watts, was chosen to fill a vacancy caused by his own absence from the Electoral College, and that he not ineligible at the time he cast his vote. Report of the Commission to Congress. 22, that for of of of The Electoral Commission having received certain certificates and papers purporting be the certificates of the Electoral votes the State of Louisiana, and certain papers accompany the Barae, and objections thereto, report that it has duly considered the and baa decided and does hereby decide, lhat the votes of William Pitt Kellogg, U. Brewster, A. B. Levisse, Oscar Jefi'eries, Peter Joseph, J. H. Birch, L. A. Sheldon, and Morris Marks named in the certificate of William P. Kellogg, Governor of State, (which votes are certified to by persons as it appeara by the certificates submitted to the Commission aforesaid and marked No, by said ' Commission, and here with returned,) are votes provided for by the Constitution of the United States, and that the same are lawfully to be counted as therein certified, namely, eight votes for Rutherford B. Hayes, of the State of Ohio, for President, and eight votes for Wm. A. Wheeler, of the State of New York, for Vice President. The Commission also decides and reports that the eight persons first before named are duly appoited electors in and by the said State of Louisiana. The ground of this decision, stated briefly, is substantially as follows : That it is not proper to go into evidence aliunde as to papers opened by the Presi dent ox tne senate, in tne presence oi toe two bouses, to prove that other persons than those regularly certified by the Gov ernor of the estate of. .Louisiana in ana ac cording to the determination and declara tion oi their appointment, in outer woros, to go oenino tne eertincate oi tne uovernor, so far as it is founded upon the action oi the Returning Board. The report also states that the Commission could not receive any evidence to show that anv Elector was ineligible on the 7th of November, the day of the election, on the ground thatit was not essential to show tnat an JMector waseiigioie on tnu uay, ao long as he was eligible when he cast his vote the Electoral Colleee. and the fact appears that the alleged ineligible Electors, Brewster and Levisee, were cho: en to fill the vacancies caused by their own absence from the college, and there was no allegation of ineligibility at the time they cast their votes. Fashion's Vagaries. Chenille fringes and tassels are still used Gray is to be the fashionable spring color. Nets are worn only with morning coiffures. Fashionable coiffures are broader and wider. Diagonals will no longer be worn in spring fabrics. Scarfs are draped with flowers in many fanciful ways. Many rich toilets are ornamented with beads and golden and silk cordeheres. The latest style of evening gloves are laced, instead of being buttoned, and are finished with small silk tassels. In embroideries, the very rich chenille and the broiderie mousse worked upon very light tulle are the favorites. The most fashionable garnitures for ball dresses for married ladies are feathers, stones (jewels or eems,) and , - - laces. Ball dresses are made low-necked, TJ-necked or V-necked, or heart-shaped, or Bquare in the neck, according to fancy. Sulphur color now replaces all the different shades of yellow lately in vogue. Ivorv-white and caroubier form a beauti ful combination. Lace mittens, reaching to the elbow and sown with seed-pearls or ornamented with ribbons and flowers, are struggling to replace gloves at balls. All sorts of fans are in favor, black feather fins with paistings, colored feather fans, lace fans, and many other kinds. Very large fans are again used f i.i. i for the theater and opera. A. small Douquei oi natural nowers, principally English violets, is much .. ... worn on some portion of the corsage, it is no longer unusual to see a DUtton ; hole bouquet in the button-hole of pelisse or long paletot.

Watson, bis associate inven tor, in charge at the Boston end. At time Mr. Watson brought an organ nse, and "Should Auld Acquaintance" and Yankee Doodle were heard heartily applauded in Lyceum Hall.

Indeed, the signs of approval were so clearly heard that Mr. Watson asked if any demonstration other the the of and and to the the clapping of hands had been made. The answer was that nothing else been done. Then " Hold the Fort" sang by Mr. Fletcher, and a series questions propounded in Salem. mation was sought as to the condition aSairs on the Boston and Maine road, and the weather, a number well-knottn Salem gentlemen taking part in this desultory discussion.

History of a Picture. Two of the most celebrated artists the world has ever known dwelt in the same city. One delighted in delineating beauty in all its graces of tint, form, and motion. His portraits were instinct with the charm of physical vigor. The graceful, half-volup-tnous outline of form and feature harmo nized with delicately blended tints. On his canvas, the homeliest faces had an almost irresistible charm. - The other found pleas ure only in depicting weird and gloomy sub jects. Above all, did he excel in painting tne portraits ot the dying, xne agonizing death-throe, the ghastly face and form, were all deDicted with marvelous fidelity. There existed between these artists the most in tense diBlike. At length this dislike cul minated. The beautv-loving artist had been engaged in painting the portrait of beau tiful woman. Connoisseurs pronounced it the most wonderful piece of art that had ever been produced. His brother artist was iealnua of his fame, and eoneht revenge. Rv bribine the keeper of the studio he gained access to the picture each night At first he was content to only deaden the bril liancy of the complexion and eyes, efface the bloom from cheek and lip, and paint a shadow on either cheek. Later, his strokes rrrw bolder and freer, and one morning tne rtiat awoke to find the entire outline of the portrait changed. He coma scarcely recoenize in the emaciated form and hag gard countenance tne glowing mju;epuuu Ka had embodied. The pallid face and ex pressionless eyes he had attributed to a lac a: nf rannineness in his materials : but when the outlines were changed he suspected the cause and indignantly dismissed the keeper.

And is it not the beauty of woman, the most ad mired of all the works which adorn the studio of Health, that Disease oftenest seek to mar?
