The speaker held that as the icport was niado to the house bv older of the committee. , it could not be withdrawn without le.ive ot the house.

Mr. lloutelle luqiilied whether the gentle man had stated tliu committee h.ul Instinctcd htm to call the pluvious question. Mr. lleibeit 1 made no such statement. Air.

On motion ol Mi. lleiboit , ajcsolullon was adopted dliecltng the seigeant-nt-nimsloni- lest and bring to the barol thu house such membeisas weiu absent without leave. Mi. lleibeit Immediately moved that all fuither pioceedlngs under the call be dis pensed with. The sole question which now- existed was tlie question of liberty ol debatp. No unieasonablc Ifmu was asked by the mi- noiity. It could not be that the gentlemen on the other side , with a majoiily ol foity , weiedesltuusof snppiesMng debute for fear of any consequences. No linrm cvci cnmc in a fivecountiy liom a fiee discussion of a legitimate piimositiun. Mr. Huiburt stated the rules ol thu house prcscilbed a reasonable time for debate on a resolution ot this cliai- acter. Tidily minutes weie allowed lit teen lor each side after thepievlousquostlon was otdered. It was simply a lesolutlon of in- ( itiirv , and theie was nothing to debate until tlio Inmili v had been anawoied. Mi. Ifeed suggested that the committee on naval allaiis had added aiiiimcudment to the resolution , which debate would show to bo a mistake nml eiithely lutlle. Mr. Huibcitreplied his side of the house was eiilliely willing to accept the consequences quences ot any mistnkcwhich might ho niado by amending the icsolutlon. II an addi tional InquliywnH made lutlle , the answer of the seoietarv of tlm navy would show it. Mr. Itecd insisted tlie house had the light to debate any question coming befoiu U , and It vvni not foi tiny man or nn > set of. men to decide whether the proposition was n pioper one to be discussed. Mr. Ilpwlttof Now Yoikameed with Mr. Iteed In maintaining thu freedom ot debate. Mr. Heed's motion was voted down , and after n short wait. Iho soigeant-nl-aims brought to the bar of tliu house Messrs. Low den. Itiggs and Hingham. Attei being consldeiably giijccl by their associates , tlm excuses niusunted by thuso gentlemen wciu deemed satlsfnutoiy and they weio released liom custody.

Thu pi ev ions question was then ordered yeas I.V. ) , noes 01. Then commenced a political debate which was opened by Mr. IJoutello , who piemised his diiect speech upon the lesolutlon with a remaik calling attention to the fact that the iirst leglslallv o act of thu bouse had been the passage , by unanimous consent , of a bill ic moving tlio political disabilities ot an ex- confeduiatc who had waited inoio than twenty jeais before discovering bis desho to bo placed In the line of eligibility to an appointment under the executive dcpattiiicnt ot the Untied States.

A Noi- folk paper had stated that Commaiidanl Ttiixton , In place ot censmc , was entitled to praise.

Sweetheart niul l orer Meet at the l'Utol'8 Point A lninl lcrWln ) llli Stnke nt tlip Sncrl- 'floe of Two Lives. My earliest.recollection , of dueling con nected with tlie poker-table goes back to U few j cari aflei'the war. I was an un willing spectator of a trairedy on board of n Hod Uivcr steamboat thai will haunt my 1110111013 until I die. The railroads that now reach in all directions through Te.xas were not built , except on paper , at the time of this episode. All the Ir.ule in the noithein part of tlio stale Avcnt lo Shreveport , a city nt the head of mxvigtt- lion on Uetl iiiver and not far from ( he Texas line. Magnificent steamboats de parted dailj lo Now Oilcans , u distance of 7.r > 0 miles. It took thico or four days to make the down tilp in high water anil a Week in low water. Laige droves of cattle weie cruelly huddled together on the boiler decks of sleainboats and shipped to New Orleans. The owneis took cabin passage and beguiled the time phi v ing cards , it was a poor tiip down that did not carry u bundled cabin passengers and atloul several big g.tmos' ' of poker. The captains of the boats al ways phned , to show their hospitality and give tone to the games. In Septem ber , 137 , I look nassago on the Daisy I'loom for the Crescent City.Vo bail over a hundred passengers' , ! ! 10 head of cattle and 1,000 bales ot cotton. The owner of the cattle , lloger O. Simnson. was a large , line-looking limn , about ! M ycaisold. Ho was a typical Texan as they were in those days , vvoio sombrcio , bell-spurs , buckskin leggings and the inevitable six-shooter , lie deposited what cash he had with the cjcik of tlio boat , ami then gave instructions to two Me.xican greaseis who had charge of his cattle on biMid. As lie tin ned to go to his stateroom a flashily ilre Td man , ac companied b.y a woman with a handsome face , passed him on their way to the clink's olliqo. 1 noticed that lie gavo. a start of surprise , but instantly checked himself and coolly walked down the cabin. After supper a number of tables wore arranged in the f i out pait o | the gentlemen's cabin and several poker gaiue.s started. The captain of the bout , thu llashly dressed man an several oth- el's formed one party. An' imitation wai extended to Simpson to play , but he refused. Now and then ho watched UK ? game , but said nothing. The handsome woman sat behind the captain and seemed lo be leading Ji book. Her hus band said the game would have to go on without him unless his. wife was piescnt. "That li one of her hobbies , gentle men , you know , to keep tin eye on me , " ho said in explanation. The players thought it queer that his wife should desire to be present , but said nothing. The iirst night out lu.sitlted in the captain's losing several thousand and the others a few hundred dollars. The flashily-dressed man had w underfill luck and seemed to know just whfm to bet. The captain said to Mr. Simpson the ne.xt day that he wanted lo get even tlmt night , but that he would not play if Iho woman read a novel at his elbow. "That is just it , captain , " icplied the Texan. " 1 am dying to take a hand , but dnrn me if I can have any luck when a woman is present. Ten to one she is giving that husband ot her's shin * . . " Both agreed to ask the husband to keep his wife away or ol.so the game would not go on. Ho pioniisod to try nnd coax her to stay in her state-room in the ladies' cabin. After an hour or . = < > he came with the good news lhal his wife would not witness the game. Tlie Texan said little to him buj'ond the fact that bo intended to play a big game or none at all. Just after supper , befoie the table was prepared , Simpson took me aside and asked mo to do him a favor. Anything that was compatible with hon or and that lay in my power 1 agreed to do for him. "I want you to slay by mo to-night , and and well , promise mo you will not leave until Ihc game is concluded , " ho said , in slow , measured tones ) . "Why ? " I asked. "Well , I was not always a rough cattle man. Years ago I lived in Virginia. When I graduated from college 1 began to practice law and was uiistiecessiul. I loved a beautiful > oung woman , and would have married her in n week hud she not lied with tlie man 1 hated. He won her by lies ! Yest lies that he told about mo , black as night and ciucl. 1 gave up the law anil went to Tevas , where I have prospered in thocattlo business. 1 think this flashily attired gambler is the man who tan away with my butiothcd. I heard ho doseited her. Till" * woman willi him does not resemble the girl 1 loved , and it it is .she , time lias changed her wonderfully. " 1 intimated that this had nothing to do with tlio game. "No , oh , no. Hut I have a premonition tlmt this man is ho and lhat 1 .shall settle old . " scores to-night. 1 shook his hand and piomisctl to act sqnarcl.v as his Iriend. I did not an ticipate trouble , for poker-playing was indulged in to a great extent ami few- fatal lostilts wcro chronicled. A KA'lT.n'l , I'OKCIt ( UM1J. The table was placed nearer the bar , than Iho picvioiis night , FO that tliti bar keeper could hand drinks readily to one ol the players , whoso capacity appeared unlimited , Tlie explain never diank , except when lie drew "a book" in order to change his luck , hn said. No one un derstood the llnshil.y-dre.ssed nian'n nativity , even when ho ordered a drjnk , which was Holtlom. "Gimmn a gin-sljng , thin , and water , " ho would older in a dry tono. 1 noticed that ho always man aged to drink the water and simply touch the trm to his lips , Simpson , who sat opposite tlio hitler , drank straight whisky at long intervals. The gani" opened in a dull manner and with very little.show of heavy betting , Tlio cap tain was in hotter luck and won several largo poU , I sat not far from the Texan and to the right of the captain. At 10 o'clock a young man with blonde sido- V'hiskers and ot exceedingly low stature- look a scat almost behind Simpson. Al though 1 had been on thu boat over twenty-four hours 1 did not recollect seeing - ing this young man ; still I did not think it strange , because ho might hav'o got on at some of tlie towns we landed nl during the day , He appeared to bo u casual observer like the twenty or thirty other passen gers who sacrificed sloop to watoh the game. It is a ppctilmr fact tlmt u big gameofuoker will kuop oven men whenever never played it out of bed till night. Thoio w as a inKcil crowd around. LVCJI one of tlio greasers came up from mind ing the cattle bolw ) to see the gamo.

It was a respectable second- night audience. 1 never moved fiom my chair , and neither did Iho blonde- -whiskered young man.

" 1 hot you $1,000 , " coolly said the Texan. "I = t-e it and rai o you $2,000 , " an- sweied the gambler. " 1 go you $ ' .

"Icsilli ouilh OJO head of catllo , " was the answer. "I accept the collateral , " replied the gambler , this time eagerly. "I have four queens , " the gambler said in confident tones , shotting hii hand and starting to lake in the money. "Not so in "I I haAc four king1nnd a conllueneu card , " tairly hi cd the Texan in hii face. "Confidence card ! " shouted the gam bler. "What is thai * " "The ace , " was the qtiiek reply "VoulnnosixcauK too , Mr , and I win. " mockingly jeered the gambler. "Where are tho\ ? " "In jour hand , ec. " The gambler took tllu confidence caid and --tripped a ( bin card fiom il tli.it appeared to be glued to it. It was one ol the bid tricks the sharper attempted to play. Quick as lightning the Texan aro-e and dealt the gambler a stinging blow in the face , say ing : "You thief , take that , and dKgorgo what you haetolen " Theblondo\oung man sprang to the table and said : "Cap tain , sue lair piny.

" Ho savvSoc- talcs thrust the spear of question through the shield and liuart of lalsehood ; was p/escnl when the gieat man drank hem lock anil met the night of death tranquil as the star incuts morning. Ho lias lol- ' lowed the peripatetic pliilosophcr.s and haXbcou pu//ledbytho sophists.

Ho knows tliu very thought tlMt , wrought the form and ' features of the Sphinx.
