A QUESTION OF Hivileoe. Mr. Brumm. f l vlvania. rising to a question of privil.i to the Clerk'a desk to liave rend what purported to he an interview with Mr. Crisp pul lished in yesterday Wsnngton JYwtf. which, he stated, reflet-ted on tlie larire minority of the House. Mr. O'Neill, of MiHsouri, suggested that there was no question of privilege r,ro. sented, as the country had a! read r re fleeted it i ion the minority of the House. THE INTERVIEW KEAD. The interview was read at length. In it Crisp criticised the actbMt of the Re publicans for refusing to vote on the Carlisle case. NOT A PRIVILEGED QCESTION. Mr. Dibble, of South Carolina, rising to a point f order, contended that the matter was not a im'vileged one. Be sides this, there was now pending before the nonse a question of high privilege affecting tlie right of a member to his seat, and until that question waa settled ue House could not take tip and settle a question of lesser privilege RCLTNO or THE CHAIR. The chair ruled that tha extract did not allege that any member was in fluenced by corrupt or improper motives, and therefore did not present a auction of privilege. The Chair waa also ready to rule that where there waa a question of highest privilege pending in tha Boo ne wouia not entertain any other tion of privilege. CARLISLE CONFIRMED. The Thoebe-Carliele case was then called np and the House proceeded to vote on the majority resolution confirm ing Carlisle's title to his seat. The lution waa adopted yeas, 164; nays, THE REPUBLICAN VOTE. Cannon, Cooper, Davenport, McKenna, Post and Steele, Republicans, voted in the affirmative, and Baker of Illinois, Brewer, Buchanan, Cbeadle, Hovey, Kerr and Laidlaw, Republicans, in the negative. Mr. Enloe, of Tennessee, called atten tion to the fact that Thoebe had had inserted in the Record certain language reflecting upon the Committee on Elec tions which he bad not used in his speech upon the floor. He (Enloe) pro tested against Thoebe'a right to do this and inveighed against the practice on the part of members of changing their remarks for publication. Mr. Reed, of Maine, suggested that Thoebe was only availing himself of the privilege of the House. Mr. Enloe moved that tlie Record be amended so as to make it contain only the language used by Thoebe Ufon the floor. Mr. Regan, of Kansas, suggested that as the privilege 4 the floor had been ex tended to Thoebe he was entitled to re vise his remarks, as it was the custom of members to do. As there was a disposition sliown on the Republican side to make a contest over the motion, Mr. Enloe withdrew it amid derisive laughter from the Repub licans. Mr. Enloe stated, in withdrawing his motion, that he had accomplished his purpose in calling the attention of the House to the fact that Thoebe had taken advantage of the privilege granted hint to insert in the Reeortl language which he had not uttered in the House.

Under tlie call of States the following bills and n solutions were introduced and referred: By Mr. Oates, of Alabama To refund the banded debt of the Unietd States at 2J per cent.; to reduce the tax on kink notes and to secure that currency against unnecessary fluctuation by applying the national revenues economically to tlie iayment of tlit national debt.

MAXWELL MUST HANG. Th Unites States Sssrssis Cosrt Dismisses ths Writ Errsr. Washington, January 23. Ten or twelve decisions were rendered by the Supreme Court of the United States to day, but none f them were of general interest except that in tlie case of Hugh M. Brooks, alias W. II. Maxwell, against the State of Missouri. This is the famous Maxwell-Preller murder case. Brooks, or Maxwell, plaintiff in error, is now in prison in the city of St. Louis, under sentence of death for the murder of C. Arthur Prel- ler in April, 18S5. The case was brought to this court upon a writ of error from the Supreme Court of Missouri and the decision here is upon the motion made by tlie Attorney General of that State to dismiss for want of jurisdiction. This court is unable after careful examination of the record to find that the plaintiff in error has been deprived of any right, privilege or immunity guaranteed him by the Constitution of the United States, and the motion to dismiss for want of jurisdiction is therefore granted. Tlie decision was announced by Chief Justice Waite, and its effect is to affirm the sen tence of death pronounced by the State court. THE MONTGOMERY AND MOBILE.

NATIONAL BANK CLOSED. Tks First Kalians I si Aasnrn la ths Hasss ! ths Eiamlrtr. Auburn, N. Y.. January 23. The doors of the First National Bank of Auburn closed this morning and the fol lowing notice waa posted: "Pending examination of the affairs of the bank and in the absence of the cashier, this bank will be closed until further notice. Demands payable here will be received here." Bank Examiner Clark arrived here Friday, and it is supposed his visit pre cipitated matters. He is now in charge of the books, but absolutely nothing authoritive concerning them is known to outsiders. It is not believed any default ing baa taken place, but that the whole trouble is due to mismanagement lend ing funds on insufficient collaterals and allowing customers to make large over drafta. - A false statement waa made to the bank examiner to eonceal the true state of affairs and the cashier, Charles O'Brien, and the bookkeeper, Elmer E. Morse, have fled the city, presumably taking the train West on Saturday after noon. ' Considerable excitement prevails upon the street and the air is thick with rumors. It is not believed the depositor will suffer loss, bet some of the smaller business concerns, finding their sou roe of supplies cut off, may be forced to the wall. The annual statement f tlie bank published Decemlier 1JS7, shows capital stock id in, fl50,000; undivided profits, i 12.379; deiiosits subject to checks, $248,270; demand certificates f deposit. fiVi.Ol'i.

Dan Dris coll was hanged at 7:29 this morning. The Tombs was surrounded by 1-jO police under the command of Inspector Wil liams, and they had pl enty to do in keep ing order among the groups f young men whose liard faces told tliat they were ' remnants of the once famous Whyogang. Among them were tome frozen-faced young women f the class to which Breezy Garrity, the woman for whose life Driscoll was to pay forfeit, be longed. Driacoll went to sleep about midnight, but awoke at 3:30, and from that time till he was taken to the gal lows was engaged with the priests. He walked to the scaffold with a firm step and before the trap was sprung cried out in a loud voice, "Jesus have mercy on me." His neck was broken and the end came without a struggle. Commodore Elbridge T. Gerry, chair man of the Legislative committee, ap pointed to recommend the most humane method .of executing criminals, was a member f the sherilFs jury at the hang ing f Dan Driscoll this morning. He expressed himself a-rni'icli pleased with the quickness of the death, but said that in view f the numerous bungling hang ings, a recommendation f the use of electricity would be presented. Dridcoll was a professional criminal. and his proficitney iu his trade had made him the leader of one of the toughest gangs tliat ever cursed the me tropolis. Tiiey called themselves "Whyos from their peculiar cry of ex ultation, recognition or warning. The woman he killed was his companion, and the bullet which killed her was in tended for a man against whom Dris coll hail a grudge. Driscoll was sent to tlie penitentiary at th age of seven teen for pocket picking and liad served several terms, aggregating seven years. His trial lias been stubbornly contested. His companions in crime have raised all the money necessary to employ skillful lawyers and exhausted all means known to defeat or delay the ends f justice. In prison he has been one of "the most difficult and dangerous to manage of whom there is any record. At one time he obtained a knife with which lie in tended to kill the warden, but he failed to carry uut his purpose. TOBACCO FAILURE. A E. Sslsirsn. of Maids Lana. Make aa As Sljnmtnt.

The assets consist f a large con signment of Havana and Sumatra to bacco and outstanding accounts, which the attorney for the firm thinks will realize, at a moderate estimate, $2.V),000.

Wliat a liitv that the medicinal virtues of grape syrup are not iwoiierly known. tirape syrup, or fruit syrup of any kind. is not jelly but the pure juice boil oil down witliout sugar till it thickens like syrup. All fruits hare tlw-ir own sugar, w hich may lie condensed bv long evapo ration, making the moat delicious and healthy form of preserves. Pick over the grapes, rejecting all unsound unes, and press a cloth in any convenient way, tlie Id wooden press I wing much better than anything with metal about it. which gives a harsh flavor. Strain the juice in a porcelain kettle, or what is better, a thick, shallow stoneware jug, holding four gallons or more; beat quickly and lioil hour after hour steadily without scorching. Stoneware liolds the heat and is less apt to burn juice or jelly than any stoveware. The juice cooks best set in the oven out of dust, where no diaf t can check its boiling. All syrups evaporate fast or in certain states of at mosphere tlian others, and a clear, dry ing day, or one just before rain, when the water boi s away fast in the tta ket tle, is the chosen time for all preserving. Making syrup is an all-day affair, and a good plan is to set the jars of juice in tlie oven at evening and keep a low fire all night, finishing off next forenoon. Six quarts of grape juice should make one f syrup, wine colored, lucent, of delicious, refreshing perfume and flavor. One teaspoonful in a glass of water gives a delightful drink, like fresh grape juice the true substitute for wine with all temperate people, and the finest med icine for correcting a feverish, bilious state ever known. The syrup itself is valuable for restoring strength, and con sumptive persons should take it by the tumbler daily, sipping leisurely with su gar, if too tart lor the taste. It makes new, rich blood, it cleanses the system, clears brail, and feeds starred nerves. It has the hypopbosphites which doctors prescribe fur was ten f tissue, and when taken freely will arrest even critical stages of disease.

NATIONAL TOPICS. Pertraits ol Massachasatts Speakers The Ctn- lonnial-A Verv Nolo Bed,. CorrnpoMdrnee of the PdUUka .Vrirs. Washington, January 20. After several futile attempts to con sider Mr. WUkms' Banking bill, the House f Representatives was the scene of an exceedingly interesting ceremony. Several years since the idea originated that ex-Speakers of the House who liad, in days f yore, been honored by the grand old Commonwealth of Massachu setts, and who by atriotic service liad honored their favorite mother and in scrilHtd their names upon the national pillar of fame, should be more promi nently remembered than by mere crayon portraits such as till now greeted the eye of all wlio passed through the lobby of tlie House. After years of labor and expense success crowned tlieif efforts. and culminated yesterday in an elalior ate presentation to Congress by Massa chusetts of magnificent iortraits of ex- Speakers Sedgwick, Betts, Varnum and Bank. Eulogies were jironounoed by tlie several members wlio represent tlie State once honored by the gentlemen whose ortraits were yesterday hung on tlie wall alongside of those representing other gentlemen who liave honored the high position of Speaker. The remarks were highly appro'iriate. ami were received with marked atten tion and just appreciation. To Represen tative Breckinridge, of Kentucky, is' awarded the palm for tlie oratorical ef- ort put forth by him which was imh-ed a masterpiece. springer defends himself. Another interesting incident of yester day was continued this morning by Mr. W. K. Springer rising to a question of privilege. Mr. Kelly had stated tliat Springer bail in the Fourty-Fourth Con gress "astutely" inserted in the bill ap propriating $1,500,000 for the centennial clause upon which lie was afterwards enabled to go into court and receive a fee of f 10.000. As Springer was in the cliair when the thrust was mrde it would have consumed some time to cor rect tlie statement at tliat time, hence hi course this morning. He allowed clearly and distinctly that be never Indulged in any but legitimate methotls in tb l trans action under discussion and furthermore showed that his claim for protecting the interests of the people f this country waa just and should be paid. As a matter of course the ati tement that Springer would explain to flay brought out a full house and it was only too clear that be was strongly braced with facts iu his favor while "pig iron" Kelly resorted to sarcasm of a marked degree to cause a ripple of favor for the position he had taken. On this account tlie contest was pretty generally con ceded to be a draw although Springer's Democratic colleagues heartily ap plauded his pluck and ability to defend himself. 'LARGE ENOUGH. I heard some one say recently that it would be wise to increase the member ship f the House. Great Scott! what a calamity that would be. In the pinion f many it is now too large and the stranger wlio find his way to the gallery for the first time iifoubled with a solu tion of the question as to how business can be conducted in such a noisy body. It is hard to conceive f a better illtis traction as a contrast for this body than a graded school turned loose for the day. Mercy! what a racket! X. Half from the Pine Woods. Huntington, January 23. The excitement of the recent fire in Huntington lias sul.idod, but there is by no means a dead calm. The fire has con sumed the building, with all its precious and irrecoverable treasures, but it has not destrtiyed the heart and courage tliat are needed to n-jiair the hats. In great emergencies soph sometime rise up to a degree of ncblo unselfishness, tliat gives a brighter asiioct to human nature, and a stronger empluisis to the old prov erb "There is never a loss without some Kin." Monday morning, w bile the ohee) were still smoking, men and women were at work gathering together the few articles that were rescued from the flames, stor ing them carefully away and clearing up the debris as far fas possible, and every thing was in train for a sjieedy rebuild ing. The experienced master builder, Mr. J. L. Bouse, of Philadelphia, who was at work uwm the bell tower f tlie church, was called i mined iately in con sultation, and before evening the plan was drawn, the contract concluded, and Mr. Bouse ntartcd for Jacksonville on the l. iii. train to secure at oncu all the needful appliances, stopping at Pomona on the way to engage the lumber. It ar rive.! punctually on Saturday, and to day (Monday) was drawn up into the yard and the house licgun. What I deacrilM! fn my last aa Bab- cock's Extinguisher was meant for Hard- wicke's Grenades. The Babcock extin guisher is quiui a different thing, equally simple and effective, but it must be worked by human hands, while the grMiades explode immediately at contact with the heat. One of the moat remarkable and inter esting feature of Huntington is the way in which the town is laid out. It is girdled entirely around by a forest of towering aromatic pines. Whichever way one turns, they form a dark and beautiful background to every picture, and lighted up by the gorgeous huts of the sunset, they are magnificent beyond expression. On a breezy lay, the ier petual soughing'of this I sit of pines is so like the roaring of the sea that one can close one's eyes and easily imagine that the sea is tossing and rolling at one's feet. The streets and avenues all loud out from the woods on one side, running across to the wood on tho ipjo site side, and the drives in evory direc tion are cut through tho forest. Tlie pines predominate, but the live oak, the cypress, the magnolia and innumerable other s'sx'ies abound. Do Castro avenue, however, loads out on the north side, from the magnificent orange groves of Mrs. Huntington. These groves extend over many acres, all of them in a high state of cultivation, and the bud for the next year are already bursting forth, promising an unusually large and luxurious crop. Any ono seek ing a residence in Florida among the or ange groves would do wisely to f! tid it here where there is tropical luxuriance with a delicious air, tropical warmth and sun shine without the swarms of insects that. infest the regions farther south. Building seems to lie the order of tho day in Huntington. Dr. Warner is erecting a fine two-story house, the lower floor of which is to be finished and fur nished for a drug store, which will sup ply a great need of the place. Hunting ton is an alarmingly healthy place, and does not seem a very promising field for a young physician, but the dot-tor has already found some practice in the vicin ity, and on Saturday was summoned to Seville in consultation. Mr. Brown's building will soon lio com pleted, and tho opening of a new dry good store is anticipated with great in terest, Another party arrived on Friday who are also intending to build and become permanent residents of Huntington. Miss Louisa C. Wheeler and maid ar rived at the (Jui-Si Sana on the 20tli to spend the winter. Sunday morning a colored tramp came to the (jui'Si-Sana and fu.ked for a break fast, saying he wished to pay for it, A full meal was sent ut to him, which he ate with appotite and called for more which was freely given him. This sec ond jiortion he put in his tiockct, and sent in what jiearod to be a dollar to cliange. The moment the lady of the house took it iu her hand she said at once it was nothing but lead, and she returned it to him as a counterfeit silver dollar. He said it was all the money he bad and inarched off. Soon aftr we found he liad tried to pass it at the store. On be ing questioned aliout it, he said be re ceived it in Crescent City, and he was advised to take it back to the man who gave it to him as quickly as po-siblo. We liojie that counterfeit dollar will not find its way into any honest man's pocket, but we are quite sure tliat the tramp will have no conscientious scrup les about victimizing the firot unsuspect ing person he meets.
