A second attempt car ried him further, but the swing of the wire made it every moment more and more difficult for him to maintain a perpendicular ; in evidence of which his balance pole jerked about fearfully. At last it was palpable that it was impossible either to go for ward or back, and after 6waytng an instant or two, man, finery, and balance pole wnt down together into the tawny waters of the Savannah, wheuce they were soon rescued the ardor of the gentle man being so thoroughly cooled that he was quite unwilling to renew the attempt ' Cin.

OLDS, OP PICKAWAY, In the Ohio Senate, January 7, 1850, on the Resolu tion to remove the Speaker. PHONOQRAPHKD FOR THK SENATE BY J. V. SMITH. CONCLUDED. Has such a thing ever been heard of any where in any court claiming to be a court of justice! But worse and worse. It is claimed by Senator that we shall connect with their own loose and random recollections, given under intense feeling, the ad- missons of the accused, but only so far as those ad missions sustain their accusations!. It is claimed solemnly by senators, that while these admissions, so far as they operate against the accused, must be received ; the statements of the accusers, in the same breath, in the same sentence, if in his favor, are to be thrown away as a thing, of nought! Such a thing would not be tolerated by the most ignorant Justice of the peace, nor would it be at tempted by the silliest petifogger in all Ohio. Never sir! , . ... . -'. But let us, if we can, arrive at what was really understood by the parties, as the terms of the ar rangement under which an organization took place. Now, sir, it is understood that the first paper drawn up Dy the senator irom uuyahoga and sub mitted to the senator from Medina, was - substan tially what was called familiarly the "Randall pro position," except so much as related to Mr. John son's being prohibited from voting in his own case. It is also well understood that the senator from Medina had announced in open senate he would vote for, and pledge himself to carry out, the Ran dall resolution. It is furthermore understood, that this first paper, drawn up by the Senator from Cuyahoga, was carried by him to room No. 137 Neil House,' to .which the senator from Medina had been invited, and which happened to be the room of E. S. Hamlin, unknown to the Senator from Medina however, as I am informed, until be entered it ! It is further well understood that this paper, was there exprssly repudiated and rejected by the Senator from Medina, and a new one drawn up by E. S. Hamlin. And yet this rejected paper contains the language which is extracted and put into the preamble of the senator from Summit, as the pledge to which the senator from Medina bound his word and honor as a man and a senator and for the violation of which he is to be ousted from the Speaker's chair. cut m addition :n drawing up a new paper, which was the written 'contract' so often mentioned there were, it seems, other terms agreed to, which were never placed upon paper. And Here is- a strange fact that ought to be noticed, in this new net of political diplomacy. Every item in the ar rangement which was clearly understood, and which was performed in one hour thereafter, a- bout wnicn there could oe no mistake, was care fully reduced to writing by these unique scriveners and negotiators; while the uncertain items which looked farther into the future for their performance, about which there was great danger that the par ties did not fully understand each other.and where there might be afterwards an honest misapprehen sion, these were as carefully left oft from paper, at loose ends, floating at random, as I have already to be alterwards understood and interpreted as circum 1 . . T ... stance migm seem to require, i can readily un derstand how the senator from Summit, who was never present at any of these interviews, may be very honestly deceived in this whole matter; and I can as readily perceive how the senator from Medina could have imposed upon, to the same ex tent I can also see as clearly, the solemn duty of all senators who engage in the investigation of this transaction, to lay aside all excited, partisan feel ing, to avoid putting so tortured and unnatural con struction upon conduct and expression not clearly understood; and, if a tair, reasonable, and natural interpretation will reconcile conflicting opinions and remove mis tpprehension, to give such fair reason able and natural construction in favor of one of their own Peers. Senators! it is your solemn duty before God and man, to do this thing! In the .light of reasonable probabilities, then what was the nature and extent of the 'arrangement as there understood and entered into by the senator from Medina? lhe 'Kandall proposition' to which the senator from Medina was was publicly pledged was virtually adopted, so tar as it is covered by the terms of the arrangement reduced to writing. Be yond that it seems to have been understood that Mr. Johnson was to retain his seat on the floor of the senate as he had heretofore done, until there could be a report on his case by the committee on Privileges and Elections, JNot that ho was to re tain his seat as a senator and be recognized as such by the senator from Medina, when he was speaker; for that was expressly denied by the senator from Medina, as the published statement of Hamlin clearly shows. Beyond this, it seems to have been clearly understood, that Mr. Johnson should not be permitted to vote in his own case; it having been expressly stated by the senator from Medina, that he had indirect assurances from a democratic senator that Mr. Johnson would not vote in his own case, and if he should attempt to do so, that he, the democratic senator, would so vote with the whigs as to prevent it " This understanding seems to have been fully ad mitted . by the senator from Cuyhoga in his res ponse the other day to the senator from Jefferson. The only subject remaining, that seemed to involve any difficulty, was the condition and claims of Mr. Broadwell, the senator from the first district Under the arbitrary rule of the Chairman of the preliminary meeting of the Senate, the rights and privileges of this gentleman had been utterly dis regarded and set at nought After a useless struggle to induce that Chairman to recognize his rights on this floor, Mr. Broadwell had announ ced his public and continuous protest against the tyranny of the chairman, and his intention to sus pend for the time being the exercise of his right so that the senate might not be embarrassed in its oftorts towards an organization ; remaining, how ever, in his seat on the floor of the senate, at lib erty to resume the exercise of his rights as a sena tor at any hour of any day, whenever he should deem it proper to do so, for tho protection of his own rights or the rights of his constituents. And thus he remained up to the time of the arrange ment for the election of a speaker. It seems to have been then understood by the senator from Medina, and he so expressed himself, that if things took the ordinary course after the election of speak er, under the ordinary rules of Parliamentary law. that Mr. Broadwell would not re-assert his rights, and resume the exercise ' of them on the floor of the senate until their should be a report on the claim of hia competitor from the committee on privileges and elections. It seems to have been further understood by the senator from Medina, that if, while things were taking their ordinary course under the rules of Parliamentary law, Mr. croaaweii or his friends should attempt to thrust him forward, by trick, upon the senate, before the report of the committee on his case or that of his competitor could be received, then the senator from Medina was to interfere by his vote, if necessary, to prevent it Well, Mr. Sneaker, under this arrangement and understanding, it seems that a speaker was elected. How have things progressed since that event ? . I venture to say. sir, on behalf of Mr. Broadwell. and of other senators on this side of the chamber, that had things progressed in the ordinary parliametary course as was understood between these parties, this difficulty would never have arisen. It is only because things have been thrown out of the ordi nary track, by the votes and action of senators, on the other side, that this extraordinary scene has Occurred. I venture in nssprt an fur na T ran cm Hi. . - , er it from these papers and all pther sources, that tnere was a distinct understanding that things should take their ordinary parliamentary course. i nave evidence tnat this course was understood to confer on the speaker, when elected, the power of appointing the committee on privileges and elec tions. There can be no misapprehension or mis understanding in regard to this, and I assert that tnere was none. ,T , .- v . -,- .- - Mr. Myers. Does the- senator from Pickaway deny that the speaker was told that all fair and honorable means, consistent with parliamentary usuage, would be used to take from him the ap pointment of the committee on privileges and elec tions? Mr. Olds. The senator from Lucas shall hear from me on that subject directly ; it is the question of the power of the speaker to appoint that com mittee which I am now examining. . Am I right m claiming that the power to appoint that commit tee was acknowedged to be in the speaker ? We shall see. Mr. Speaker, frr what was this struggle of four weeks in the choice of a presiding officer Not surely for the paltry honor of sitting in that chair; because every body knows that if a man is at all ambitious to display, his talents and ability, the speak er s chair is the last place to which he should aspire, for there all his brilliant qualities which might entitle him to distinction, are emphatically "hid under a bushel." Then the struggle on this floor for the first month of the session, was not for the speakership as an object of personal or party amDiuon. air, tne struggle lor tnat cnair was De cause Aere lay the power to appoint that impor tant committee on privileges and elections! On that point the controversy rested. For that reason both sides held on in their laborious ballotings There was known to rest the question of the ses sion. All this was well understood on the other side. If not so understood, why did the senator from Cuyahoga, with all those soft blandishments with which he strove to facinate the senator from Jefferson, in those "public spirited, and patriotic" conversations, when he told that senator he could have the democratic vote for speaker, why did he always add Am proviso that the senator from Trum bull (Mr. Beaver) must not be appointed chairman of that committee? Sir, this matter was well un derstood. And I now assert, in the hearing of every senator on the other side of the chamber, that if the election of a speaker had resulted in the choice of a democrat you never would have heard of this proposition of theirs, to elect this committee by ballot Never, sir! And now, Mr. Speaker, in reply to the inquiry of the senator from Lucas, I will say, that the sen ator from Medina, was told, as I suppose, at No. 137 of the Neil house, that every effort consistent with Parliamentary usuage, would be made to take out of his handa, if elected speaker, the appoint ment of that committee ; but it was equally well understood there, that in all those efforts they couM in no case have his vote for that purpose. And what would all their efforts avail them ? It was clearly understood that there were eighteen senators on this side holding undispated seats, who would stand by and assert the right to have that committee appointed in the usual manner; and that on the other side there were only seventeen, with undisputed seats, who could stand, and with their votes maintain the election of that committee by ballot How then could they expect to get the control of that committee? Ah, sir, I can very well conceive that after four weeks balloting for speaker, we were then to have another protracted struggle on this point, by the illegal vote of Mr. Johnson holding us from any choice of a committee ; and thus the time of the senate was to be wasted, until worn down by fatigue, senators on this side, would be expected to yield their ground. Now, sir, I wish to say, just at this point that while on this side we engage in no bravado, employ no lofty threats, make no loud professions of invincibility, yet gentlemen on on the other side must not fall into the error of supposing that calmness, and cool ness, sometimes under insult and outrage, are ev idence here of indecision and want of firmness. So far as I understand the operations of the hu man intellect it is not from the noisiest and most blustering that you may expect the sternest resist ance and most resolute firmness in the hour of trial. Applause. But, sir, besides having this struggle in the rais ing of this committee thrust upon us, contrary to all the ordinary rules of proceeding, we are also met with another violent departure from the ordinary course in legislative bodies. Immediately upon the election of officers, it was to be expected that the old rules of the senate would be adopted for the government of the body, until new rules could be framed and adopted. This has been the unvarying custom so far as I can learn, ever since there has been a senate of Ohio. For this purpose a motion is Submitted by the senator from Franklin, and voted down by the unanimous voice of senators over the way, aided by the illegal vote of Mr. Johnson. This is done, not only because those rules recog nized the power of the speaker to appoint that com mittee on privileges and elections, but also because they contained a provision that would prevent Mr. Johnson from voting in his own case. Was not this in direct violation of the ''arrange ment" made with the senator from Medina, that Mr. Johnson was to be prohibitited from voting on the question of his right to a seat? Next, sir, comes a resolution from that side, of fered by the senator from Wayne, proposing sub stantially the rules of the last session, except that 0 NUMBER 47. the right of the speaker to appoint that committee was denied, and the rule restraining Mr. Johnson from voting, was entirely omitted; and this resolu tion received the unbroken support of the seven teen senators over the way, and the recorded vote . C - I T 1 m, - . i . ui mr. duuuson. inus, lor me second time, was there an unanimous and recorded vote of these senators in direct violation of the "arrangement1 made by then: agent, with the senator from Medina. " ' ' Mr. Dennison. 1 here was another important omission in tne rules proposed by the senator from Wayne, which perhaps has escaped the notice of the senator from Pickaway. - The power of the speaker to correct the Journal, was to be taken away. ' Mr. Olds. That fact has not escaped my obser vation, but I have not alluded to it in this connec tion, for the reason that I wished.to present those alone that bear upon the "arrangement" with the speaker. What is the next step of democratic sen atorsi Why, sir, a motion is made by the senator from Ashtabula, (Mr. Kandall,) to adopt a rule pro viding in express terms, that no one should vote on any question in any way touching his right to a seat upon this floor ; and that, too, is voted down by the undivided vote of the democratic senators and Mr. Johnson, thus, for the third time, and in a most direct and pointed manner, was the "ar rangement" annulled, and its terms utterly disre garded by these senators, who have been hurling such bitter denunciations at you, tor violated faith, To what point had the senate then arrived ? At a point where there was a distinct announcement by votes, recorded votes, that this senate should not be organized unless Mr. Johnson was retained in his seat JNow, sir, was it strange, under these cir cumstances that Mr. Broadwell should take the alarm ? . Why, sir, every honorable man of every party would have scouted him, had he permitted all these things to pass withtmt being alarmed. His constituents would have disowned him, had he not taken the alarm. And yet senators gravely claim that at this point there appears evidence of a conspiracy ! a conspiracy against the peace and dignity of this senate ! Heaven help the dignity of the senate ! A conspiracy involving the honor of the speaker, ot the senator from Ashtabula, of the senator from the first district of Hamilton county, and ultimately of every senator on this side of the chamber. And what is this evidence? Simply this, sir, that Mr. Broadwell, in rising to resume the exercise of his rights on this floor, read to the senate a short written address. To protect him self against the noise and confusion, the interrup tions and abuse coming from the other side of the chamber whenever he rose for any puspose, to pre vent being thrown on bis guard by those stentori an cries of "order, order, I call that man to order!" ever ringing in his ears, and to preserve that accu racy of statement and conciseness of remark with which he wished to re-assert his rights, he thought proper to reduce to writing in an hour of entire coolness, and self-possession, all the thoughts he in tended to utter when the emergency should arise for their utterance. -.-- u sir, 1 admire his rood sense and discretion . in that very act But, sir, that little writtten speech contained an allusion, forsooth, to the vote then just isksn, and therefore it is evidence of conspiracy. For says the senator from Kicbland, (Mr. Barns,) the senator had his t peech already prepared, and there must have been concert among the conspira tors ; and he says this, too, though the senator from Ashtabula has avowed in his place, that his mo tion was submitted on his own responsibility, and without consultation with any body, sir, Mr. Broadwell would have been less than a man, if he could not have foreseen that an emergency would at some time occur, iust such as did present itself that morning. Vote after vote had been taken in this senate, pointing with unerring certainty to that ve.-y result He did forsee it, and was happily and most appropriately prepared for it " And this is the sum and substance of all the mystery there was about that little piece of paper of Mr. Broad well ; and this, strange to say, is all the evidence of this conspiracy ! Sir, of all the miserable "mare' nests" ever discovered by the prying inquisitive- ness of any intellect high or low, this one is the last and least. (Applause.) And now, what is our position in reference to all these matters about which I have spoken. Why, we, on this side of the chamber, are all "disorgani- zers." Because Mr. Broadwell has taken a step which was right and proper for him to take, and because we, on this side have seen proper to ap prove of it, therefore, we are said to be perform ing the last act in the drama of disorganization. And worse than all else, the great whig party of Ohio is committing the last act of suicide. I es, sir, if the senator from Cuyahoga and the senator from Fairfield are to be believed, for two years has this poor deluded whig party been rushing on to self-destruction. And how the bowels of compas sion In these gentlemen have been' moved, and how have they yearned over this poor God-forsaken and man-abhorred whig party. And the gentlemen seem so sorry that we should perpetrate any suicidal act; and how distressed are they, lest, peradven ture, the dishonored corpse of their great enemy should be cast out from christian sepulture buried at some cross-road, with a stake thrust through it, llauffhterl according to the old English law of sui cide. They come to us with beseeching look and aconized tones, praying us not to take our live in our own hands, and rush upon certain destruction, And why. sir, all this sympathy and compassion 1 Ah, methiuks, I can see the poor forsaken wretch, wandering off alone, with head bow 3d down, and features dark with dispair, bent on returning to God who gave it the life which is no longer useful to himself. But suddenly his hand is arrested, his fell purpose thwarted by the timely approach of two, who seem to sympathize with suHenng nu manity; and the victim is saved. But saved, for what ? Why. sir. saved from that death, for worse and more ignominious one ; saved from self destruction, to fall by the. treacherous hands of those who rescued him ; for, methinks I see the one with shabbily genteel ruffianism boldly assault him in front, while the other with the sly cunning of the Spanish assassin stabs him from behind, cheers and thus is he sent uncalled into the presence of his God. It is to be thus with this great whig party, when rescued from the commission of suicide by the sen ators from Fairfield and Cuyahoga. I thought I could almost hear the senator from Belmont, (Mr. Simpson) who is a poet I am told, as well as a statesman, singing our funeral dirge in the style of that old nursery song of Who hilled 6ochRobin P Laughter It, ran something in this wise: 1 ' . ' A-U who killed the Whig party? -'- I, said the ehief of the Cuyahoga '', . I found it in Bearer' big atog-as, -r-i . ...i And I killed the Whig partv. ; :!:T 'J .': Bursts of applause.

JNow, would not that, Mr. speaker, be a consum mation most devoutly to be wished for? to die by such hands, and to be immortalized in such song I I am sorry, sir, that I must say to those gentlemen, that while personally I could not find it in my neart io protest, yet 1 Delieve, and 1 utter it as the sincere conviction of my soul, that the great wnig party wu( not ate, 111 that way. Continued applause. . '. . . ... 'y ; :', 1 But, sir, we are disorganizes, as they say. and every step we have taken is a step towards disor organizahon. We are of that old remnant of fed eralism, opposed to the people having their, own way, uouna to Dreait up the legislature, so that there may be no new constitution, and all that sort of thing. I shall not retort by calling any , hard names, but gentlemen over the way must bear with me if I call them the "organizers." For I find these charges of theirs, which they throw out here so plentifully, first set to music in the columns of their party paper the great democratic "organ" of the state; and when the same notes are trilled over here day -after day, not with so much power, to be sure, but with skill enough to show that for little "organs" they do very well, applause, I must be permitted to say that they are the "organizers," par excellance. They pipe in unison with their great music master most harmoniously. - Contin ued merriment . i But, sir, let us examine a little this matter of dis organization these charges of treason "to the con stitution.". In heaven's name, how is it? ,1 say, sir, in all earnestness, that every step taken in this senate since the first Monday in December, by the gentlemen over the way, has been a step towards disorganization. . For this reason, sir,., that every, step taken on that side has been taken to organize this senate with Mr. Johnson in his seat, and in no other way; and this must result in disorganization, of course. The proposition is exceedingly simple and plain. ; ; - thirty-five senators came here, about whose right to seats there is no controversy. There is one aisputea seat; the senate when properly constitu ted having thirty-six members. There are two claimants for the disputed seat The senate nnder the constitution, is the judge of the qualifications of its members. Now, sir, children five vears old have sense enough to see how this matter should be settled. The two claimants are, of course, in competent judges in the matter. They must; then. stand aside, while the thirty-five decide npon their wi.a:A4t.. ..1 : - rn - t . 1 . wuuivuug uuuu. Aiiereiure, x say, sir, mav every attempt to organize this body with one- of those claimants in his seat; to the exclusion of the "other, and every refusal to Organize in any other way, is, to all intents and: purposes, disorganization. .r Ia- ww of this proposition, who are the disorgatu zers. ' .- ', . - . On the Saturday preceding the assembling of the legislature, we proposed to senators, on that side, to unite with them in an effort to organize on an exact plan above stated. It was done in the lower house last winter, after a struggle of three weeks ; it was done there this winter, on the first day, by the consent of all parties But our propo sition to senators over the way, was instantly, re jected. That was disorganization. ' .. - What was next done by tbem? - They get a chairman to preside while the senate is attempting to organize, who will recognize Mr. Johnson in the disputed seat, and no one else. To get that chair man, tbey set up a claim that only old senatars, or those holding over shall participate in. the organi zation; and they do this solely because they nave the majority of the senators holding over; and a chairman is actually elected and foisted into his seat to preside ' over thirty-five senators, whose seats are undisputed, by the votes of only nine sen ators, "and his own vote one of the number. I boldly assert here in the presence of every senator on this floor, that such a claim and such a result would have been deemed an otitrage by every dem ocratic senator, had it not given them a political advantage. That is the second step in disorgani zation. ..What next? - An attempt is then made to take a vote on the case of Mr. Johnson, hich shall be binding on the entire senate; and under the arbitrary will of the then chairman, a question is decided to be carried in Mr. Johnson's favor, by the vote of ten senators only,' being less than one third of the whole number; and by virtue of that vote, Mr. Johnson now claijns to hold a seat on this floor. This is the third step in disorganization. Mr. Johnson: The question was not whether I should take my seat . ; , Mr. Olds. As I understand it. the question was on his being sworn in as a senator, but it was in tended to settls his prima facie right to a seat , , I come now to a more important matter, which really makes the fourth step in the progress of the other side towards disorganization. If this con tract in relation to the election of' the speaker be in the exact terms claimed : by the senator from Cuyahoga, then this contract was made with an evr- presss design to secure a fraudulent organization of this senate ; and that is virtually disorganization also. -The senator from Medina had declared in open senate that he did not regard Mr. Johnson as having even a prima facie right to n seat here. He said he regarded Mr. Broud well's right to a seat unquestionable.. He had declared .with marked emphasis, to the senator .from Cuyahoga himself, that he would never refuse lo recognize the rights of Mr. Broadwell Now, after all this, if that con tract was made by the gentleman who acted as agent for his party, so as to recognise Mr. Johnson as a senator, to the exclusion of Mr. Broadwell and his rights, as it is claimed to have been made, it Is oi intended fraud upon this side of the chamber; and if it reflects infamy any where, it reflects more infamy on the seducer than on the seduced! If so made, it was made in the face of the opinions of trie senator from Medina, openly expressed on . this floor, and in view of which he was then receiving our united vote for for speaker ; and if he was then seduced into such a . contract,, privately executed, and when fulfilled to be as privately destroyed, whose terms were never to be divulged above all, never to be whispered into the ear of the "old hun ter from Trumbull." cheers and laughter, I say again, sir, the . infamy of the transaction belongs rather to the seducer than ihe'seduced. I allude to these things, in this connexion, for the purpose of sustaining my proposition, that every step taken by senators on the other side has beerj taken towards a. disorganization. Every Step has been taken so that the claim of Mr. JohfieOT to seat should never be eubmitted to this senate. The senator from Cuyahoga admitted this morning; in response to an inquiry of the senator from Jef ferson, that he had stated, "if they succeeded in
