The Fifty-First Congress opened witl remarkable display of good feeling be tween the members of the opposing par ties, and on the surface there was i peaceful calm that to the optimist ob server pointed to a session of harmony, concession and geneiosity. Of course ii was only on the surface; for republicai temper was too well understood througl experience to hope tor moderation, gen erosity or fair play with the possessioi of a party majority. The halcyon days are already past, and the first open stc to the attainment of deliberated part ends has been taken. The republican ma jority in the house is sufficient, if it c.n always be commanded, to carry out am party end, but it is too insecure to bi depended upon against the contingen cies of sickness, unavoidable absence, oi such independence of action as securec the election of Chaplain Milburn agains the decree of the caucus. A more certaii and larger majority must be secured Therefore it is to be obtained by put tin;, the contested election -ases, of whicl there are nineteen, at the mercy of tin majority of the house, instead of adopt ing the usual course of awaiting the ac tion of the committee on elections. T this scheme, Speaker Reed readily lend himselt, by ruiing on a point of order it the Breckcnridge-Clayton case, iu'whicl be decided that such question was i privileged one, involving the right of ; member to his seat, and one to lie re ferred to the house for decision. Th. house, with a republican majority, o course would give a party decision, am thus it hopes to unseat all the democrat whose seats are contested, and secure ; majority which would enable it to carr out its most extreme measures. The ruling is against all precedent, anc is practically revolutionary. Of cours. the democratic majority will oppose b every parliamentary obstacle; even t the extent of obstructing the business o: the congress until the rights of the mi nority, and with them the constitution i security of the country, is attained. Mr. Keed has thrown down the chal lenge in his bold impudent avowal thai he "is in the chair to look out for the in interests of the republican party and tin democrats will have to do what thej can about it." And that is the key noti to the action of the whole party move ment. The interests of the republicai party require that such legislation as thai proposed by Chandler should be enacted though the liberties of the Suutheri whites be throttled, and though power; be placed in the hands of a race untittei and incompetent to use it ; they reqniri that the verdict of the people, the decis ion of the ballot, the action of the court; in Montana should be set aside that thi party should strengthen its majority i i congress; worse perhaps than all, it re quires that the processes of the courts bt contemptuously disregarded, that Dud ley, whose criminal work "in the interest.' of the republican party" may enjoy tht honors and rewards of the man so in strumental in placing a republican presi dent in the chair. Surely such party with its narrow aims and its corrupt and dangerou methods has no title to the claim it makes as the party of the country. TAZEWKLL L. HARGROTK, Those who knew this gentleman well will hear the tidings of his death with keen regret, notwithstanding a political record in times of bitterness which lost him many friends and built up for him many enemies. Why he should have al ' filiated with the republican party against former convictions, and at a period when party lines were so sharply drawn, and when republican measures were so full ol offence, we are not able to explain. For his service to that party he had his re ward in the position of attorney gen eral for the State. Perhaps it was such reward that tempted him. But lit was so brave and upright a man that we must give him credit lor sincere convic tions. He was a bold aggressive parti san, bat too honorable to doanythingto compromise his character or integrity. When he had arrayed himself politically against his old friends, when they encoun tered each other in rancorous debate, it was never forgotten how brave a Con federate soldier he had been, and how one act alone would have immortalized him, even as the Roman soldier Codes has come down to us lor his single handed defense of the bridge which pro tected Rome against the hosts of I'or- senna. It was at the bridge across the South Anna, we believe, that Taz Har grove was posted with a squad of sixtv- tour men with orders to hold it against any Federal force that might assail it to get within the Confederate lines. Here he was attacked by a Federal brigade ; and faithful to his duty, be resisted the at tack, fighting fiercely with his little squad, killing and wounding many of the enemy losing many of his own men, keeping back hit assailants until late in the day. when a portion of them crossed above, or below, we frget which, took his force in the rear and captured them, and were chagrined, jet filled with admiration, to find how a body to contemptible in num ber had delayed an army and inflicted tucb loss noon it. The influenza or a grippe hat reached our tbores, having appeared la a tome- what aggravated form. It is nothing to laugh at, though largely made up of sneezing. It never kills, but, like sea sickness, everyone who has it most earn estly wishes he were well out ol it, or dead. The first case tn New ork is de scribed as follows in the Sun, on the au thority of Dr. Lellman, who attended the patient : She left the house that morning ap parently well. In the street she was seized with a sudden attack of vertigo. She went home, and the other symptoms of influenza rapidly appeared. The luck ol premonitory symptoms is a character istic of influenza. The young lady had in intense headache and chills, ultcrnat ,ng with a feeling of intense heat. There aere general malaise with very high temperature. The other symptoms were pains in the liiusdes and joints, a tiding if depression in the lower part of the chest and catarrh of the nostrils and oronchial tubes. She was very sick for a i tic while and then her temperature uddenly tell nearly five degrees. V ester lay she was almost well. And the Sun's account goes on to say : 'The influenza, in the form in which it is low making the circuit of the globe, i lothing, so far as symptoms and elicit ,;o, but a bad cold. It begins with water ng of the eyes, running of the nose, anil general irritation of the mucous imm jraneofthe throat ami nostrils. It is ittended with the aching bones, burning yes, dull head, and general wearinesss mil disgust with life that attend a bad old. It is like hay fever, except that its oursc is short ami it dues not upear to lave the tendency toward asthma that ;ivcs added terror of the lever. Its indi rect effects upon the patient deiienn ipon the circumstances of thc.ittack and lie tcmiieranient of the victim. It has n nianv cases abroad been followed by .he breaking out of a rush, and other ntlieations of serous affections, but the loctors sav that the rash is really only in indication of a levcrisli tendency in he patient, heightened by the influenza. All doctors of eminence here and abroad ecm to agree that there is nothing langcrous about the epidemic, and that .vcu us unpleasant effects will last out a hurt time in each case, I-rum tour to .en days is the general period ot the liscasc in Europe." As a remedy, or mode of treatment, Dr. iidson says; Influenza is easily handled. The emedy is simple ami w ithin the reach oi ill. All that is necessary to cure is a 1(J jer cent, solution of quinine to be sprayed over the affected membrane .reelv and frequently, and the following .o lie taken internally; Three grains ol jiiinine, one-halt grain of camphor and a luartcr of a grain of extract of bella .onna to be made into a pill or powders, ind taken four or five times a day." It is painful, as indicating an unsuspec ed degree of hostility towards the Southern w hites, not on the part of the lacks but also of the whites, to read the ollow ing proceedings ot a meeting held n Washington City. It was immcdi itely under the eye of congress, and in stigated and encouraged by the well .nown sentiment of that body, by the inow ledge of measures to be introduced .ooking to government interference with .he affairs ol the South, and largely due tlso to the partisan position of President il.irrison himself. Anarchy and dyna nite are punished with death as deadly .-rimes in Chicago. In Washington .vhcre negroes plot crime and the use ot lynamite, they are encouraged, at least lot rebuked, for their "innocent amuse nent." We find the following telegram in the ilaltimore Sun : Washington, December l(i. The Cen .ral Bureau ot Relict, an organization ol .-olored men, which has as the purpose ol ts existence the redress of the negro's grievances in the South, held a largely ittcmln! meeting to-night at the Fifth ilaptist Church. Perry Carson presided, mil a number of rather incendiary -(leeches were made by ex. Representative :v. C. Small, of South Carolina; 11. W. Kinkaid, of Tennessee; Rev. D. F. Bats, , Danville, Va., and one or two others, iiach of the speakers told instances of A-hat they termed Southern outrages, .ind urged that the negroes should meet lorce with force. Mr. Small suggested that the negroes icarn the use ol dynamite. Rev. Mr. liats said that heretofore the negro had iieen as timid as a lot of rabbits, but that the time had come when they must .ace the white men and stand up for their rights with rifles if necessary. An other speaker said, in speaking of the proposed plans torcolonizingthc negroes, that the colored people could not be driven any where except at the point of the bavonct. He added that thev were ready to provide themselves with bullets in oriler to secuie relict from oppression Allusions were made to the Blair educa tional bill as being a measure likelv to iienelit the negroes in the South, and whenever the names of Senators Blair and Sherman were mentioned they were received w ith cheers.
