There was a spirited debate in the
House at Washington, a few days ago,
on the Apportionment bill. After
what Shellabarger and Garfield had
said Mr. Cox of New York, recognis
ing the fourteenth amendment as para
mount, insisted that, as a consequence
of their logic, the House should take
the Census Bureau's stateuieuL That
tatement shows that the male citiseus
above 21 yeans of age wboee right to
vote ia denied or abridged, on other
grouuds lhan rebellioii or other crime,
have not been constitutionally deduct
• ed from the rati* or the fractious in
the billa before the House. Mr. Cox
appealed to the majority to stand by
their fourteenth amendment. The
House seemed to go on the idee that
only the disfranchised should be de
ducted from the ratio. That not
the Constitution. The fourteenth
amendment says that when the right
to vote, Ac., is denied to tiny of the
male inhabitants of such State being
twenty-one years of age and citixeus of
the United StaU, or in any way
abridged, except for rebellion or crime,
the basis of representation shall be re
duced in the proportion which the
number ef such male citisena shall
bear to tha whole uuiuber of male cit
isena twenty-one years of age in such
State. Mr. Cox contends that the
numb, r to be deducted was more than
the number of the disfranchised. This
gathered around him the House on
both sides, while he ciphered by the
rule of three and the Constitution,
Rhode Island, for instance: the dis
franchised, by th# census returns it 2.-
825; the maJee over 21, 43,996; the
whole population 217,353. By the
Constitution and arithmetic 13,<28
should he deducted from the whole
number of population, leaving 203,625.
Deducting from 203,120, the lowest
ratio, 136,21r, left MIJ 67,406, keiug
leu than the ratio fixed by the bill of
Mercur or other billa Ohio, by the
same rule, would lose one Congress
man, and Massachusetts comes within
four hundred of losing another, by the
rule ef the two bills fixing 280 as the
number of Congressman. Mr. Cox
contended that as tbe Democracy had
accepted the amendments, and had al
ways stood by the unamended Consti
tution it was a fraud for the Republi
cans to wriggle and squirm about their
own amendments when such amend
ments cut down Massachusetts, Rhode
Island, and Ohio. Tbe fourteenth
amendment was meant to force tbe
South to take negro suffrage or lose
representation. They took it. Now
the Radicals desire to avoid iti effects
.on New England. They squirm be
fore the figures of their own creation.
They are hoist by their own peurd.
They depart from their owu amend
ments, and the Democracy stand by
tbe Constitution and its amendments.
Quits a consternation was created by
Mr. Cox's figures, as no Republican
had contemplated these results of tbe
fourteenth amendment. If Kentucky
or Georgia bad laws prohibitiug those
who can't read and write, or who don't
own real estate of a certain amount,
who doubts but that Congress, under
the fourteenth amendment, would
have deducted such disfranchised per
sons from the ratio? If so, why not i
the Germans and Irish of Rhode Is- <
.and and the illiterate of Massachu
setts for tbe same reason ?
A bill lima been introduced in Con-
gress directing the Postmaster-Gener
al to furnish and issue to the public,
stamped postal cards for the transmis
sion through the mails of messages or
other short communications at a pos
tage charge of one cent each, the cost
of the card included. The experiment
•f using cards for the transmission of
open correspondence at a very low
rate has been tried in England and
be* proved popular, tbe principal ob
jection urged against it being that tbe
cards offer cheap facilities for annoying
)>e->ple by addressing them insulting
communications, and that such scan
d.-tlous writings may be read by the
persons through whose hands the mat
ter passes.

Washington, Dec. 13. —The Re
publican Senatorial caucu* mumbled
this morning at 10:30, Senator Autho
nir, of Rhode Island, in the chair.
Tite discussion ef Truuthull'a resolu
tion wa* reeutued with increased ex
citement. The recalcitrant Senator*
Deemed to realise lo day what they
evidently did not know yeaten lay:
that they had been drawn iuto a '.rap
When they went into caucu* yesterday
thev had no idea that au arrangement
had been made between the President
aud his friends whereby their project
for an investigation into the corrupt
practices of the administration wa* to
be nipped in the bud. The thiug wa*
sprung upon them so suddeuly that
thcv were, so to speak, dunfounded ;
and it wa* not uutil the ducuMtion
had progressed for some tim- that
they understood the object of the cau
cus. It appears that beuator Trum
bull's resolution first attracted the
attention of Senator Morton, who, be
ing a sharp politician, saw at once its
scope and its consequence*. lie, it
appears* communicated with the Prea •
dent and t auinbcr of Senators kuowu
to be the unquerftioniug henchmen of
the administration, ft was at oncerv-
solved that something should be done
to check tbe discussion of the resolu
tion in Jopen Senate. There were no
fears of its passage, for the adminis
tration had a force sufficient to defeat
it against the combined vote of the an
ti administration Republicans and tbe
Democrats. It was rightly presumed
that if tbe resolution and its support-
ers could be pushed into a caucus
both would be either modified or mol
lified or effectually wquelched. The
possibility of a vote upon the part of
the dissatisfied Senators, does not seem
to have been seriously eutertained.
Their pluck was largely discounted.
There is reason to believe that had
Schurs and Sumner bolted tbe caucus
no serious regrets would have follow
ed, for the former is regarded by the
administration Senators as a sort of a
spy iu Radical camp, while the latter
is conceeded to be so for gone in bis re
bellion against th# powers that be as to
to be beyond mil nope of redemption
might be inferred from the result of
the proceedings yesterday, the caucus
assembled this morning in anything
but an amiable mood. It has already
Been stated that tbe dissatisfied and
disappointed Senators had arrived at
a full realisation of the dilemma iu
which they were placed. A few of
the mora resolute determined to make
the beat of tbe fight, but it soon be
came apparent that ordinary opposi
tion was fruitless. There was a sharp
interchange of sentiment Zach
Chandler, recognizing tbe fact- that
the anti-administration Senators were
in minority, was unusually bold acd
violent He impugned tbe metivea of
the supporter's of Trumbull's resolu
tion, and charged that tbey were too
cowardly t make an open attack
upon the President and sought this
indirect method to bring odium upon
the administration. This charge was
repelled by Senator Trumbull, tbe au
thor of the resolution, who insisted
that be wanted nothing but a fair in
vestigation of whatever frauds might
be found in the different departments
of the government. A discussion
arose as to the construction to be
placed upon the resolution relative to
the powers of the oommittee which it
, proposed to create. Senator Morton
argued that it could do nothing ex
cept by special order of the feet ate,
while Schurxand Trumbull contended
that it would have plenary powers to
institute investigations without iu
strueUoni. There were several sharp
personal thrusts between Senators,
but these were uot of public import
ance. Finally a vote was reached
upon Trumbull's resolution, and it
was defeated. The yeas and nays
were not callerl, for the majority was
too large to admit of a doubt. The
death of the resolution was immediate
ly followed by a proposition from Sen
ator Morton to appoint a committee of
seven, to be known as the Committee
on Investigation and Retrenchment,
which should investigate all mat
ters referred to it by the Senate.
This emasculated all that was of con
sequence in Trumbull's resolution.
As a matter ot course it was opposed
bv the friends of the measure, finator
Tipton, ofJNebraekn, denounced this in
unmeasured terms as a whitewashing
prot osition and as au attempt to evade
a fair investigation of the alleged cor
ruptions under the administration.
He wanted a committee with free
railroad passes and with a carte blan
che to go to every 'part of ihe coun
try and to investigate every depart
ment .if Uie government. He gave
uotice that he would not submit to
any gag arrangement, and he there
upon left the caucus. He was follow
ed by Heuator Sumner, who insisted
that no harm could be apprehended
from the resolution of Mr. Trumbull,
except from those who were guilty of
frauds upon the public Treasury.
After • few of the recalcitrant Senator*
had ventilated their view* the vote wa* tak
en and Morton's resolution wa* adopted
without a divison, Trumbull and hi* adhe
rent* refusing to vote. The anti-Grant
Senator* number in all about nine, and the
more judicious of them calculated that
even with the Democrat* they could not
muvter a majority against the friend* of
the administration in the Senate. Trum
bull and hi* friend* had a splendid oppor
tunity to-day to bolt the caucus and go be
fore the country upon the issue of whether
or not a rigid examination should be made
into the alleged frauds upon the national
Treasury. It wa* manifest, however, that
they had neither the pluck nor the disposi
tion to make an open, square issue with the
administration. The only bold man among
them was Tipton, of Nebraska. Had the
other* followed bis lead there would have
been a rupture. Trumbull and those who
supported hi* resolution by remaining in
the caucus until the Anal vote wa* taken
were bound to abide by it* decison.
When the caucus proceedings were de
veloped in the open session of the Senate
by the presentation of Morton's programme
for a standing committee of the Senate <>n- i
ly. instead of a special joint committee, the
difference became at once apparent. The
former could only investigate such matters
a* are referred to it by the Senate, while a
special committe could go promptly into
every nook and corner of the New York
Custom-house with fear, favor, affection, or

Suicide of au Ex Congmtwnian
Colonel John D. Aahmore, form
erly a State Senator of and a Con
gressman from South Carolina, commit
ted suicide yesterday mornings! Sard is,
Miss., by shooting himself with a Der
riuger pistol. Colonel Aahmore was,
before the late war sjdistinguished rej>*
resentatirs in Congress from South
Carolina. The Disastrous result of
the late war deprir<d him of a large
amount of wealth, a fact which had an
evil effect on the habits of the on for ;
lunate. A few years since he with
his family removed to the Mississippi
bottom ten miles from Bardia, Miss.
But Colonel Arhiuore's agricultural
efforts became failures, and he remov
ed to Sardis for the purpose of resum
ing his profession as a lawyer. He was
addicted to intemperance, and leA Sar
dis for Batesville, Miss., on last Mon
day evening. Yesterday morning, he
returned on the early train, and was
apparently not under the influence of
liquor. He went to his boarding
house, retired to his room, and in a
few minutes a loud explosion was
heard. The lady of the house rushed
in and discovered the unfortunate
man in a death struggle. Captain F.
B. Randolph,of the Panola Star, was
on;the spot in a few seconds, aud found
the suicide lying on the bed. In his
right hand he held the fatal Derring
er, which he convulsively shoved
Mgaiust his neck, and was eudeavor ■
mg to pull the trigger even in his
death agony. The ball eiilered the j
right side of the head, passing out
through the top, iuflicting a horrible 1
wound, from which death resulted in
a few minutes. The brains of the un- <
fortunate man were scattered in all '
directions Colonel Ash more was a ,
polished and cultivated gentleman, ,t
and had a large circle of friends iu 1
Mississippi. P
Seventeen Persona Frozen to Death
St. Louis, Dec. 12.—A gentleman
who arrived in Kausa* City on Sat
urday last informed the Kansas City
Times that the Sunday previous a ter
rible affair occurad in Saline County,
Nebraska. A party of emigrant*
with their families were passing
through the county westward, when,
the cold constantly increasing, they
concluded to camp and light a fire.
They were on a piece of high prairie
several miles from any house, but
three miles from them wa* a piece of
timber land. After unhitching their
teams the men started for this timber
to procure fuel. Not returning for
several hours the women left their
children and started to hunt for them.
This is all that is known save that the
bodies of seventeen person* who per.
ished from the intense cold were found
The children who were .eft in the
wagons were the only survivor* of:
the party.

A method of rendering wood meas

by Dr. Keiiisch. The wood, whh-h iou>t
not be plained is placed for twenty-four
hours in a liquid composed of one part
.of concentrated silicate of po'assa aud
three juirts of pure water. After hav
ing I wen removed from this liquid,
aud dried for several days, the wood
is agaiu soaked in this liquid, aud, af*
ter having been agaiu dried, is painted
over with a mixture of one part ce
ment and four parts of the liquid
above described. After the first coat
of thia paint is dry, the painting is re
peated twice. Of the paJUt alluded to.
too large quautitiea are not to be made
up at once, because it rapidly becomes
very dry aud hard. No tests or xj
penrmula are reported of the value <>f
this method over other processes for

News slates that wood thus treated is
rwudered uninflamable, aud docs not

The dedication of ihe M. K. Church of

Murry, F. K. Houghs waul, pastor in
charge, aud Crostbwait.
After the customary exercises in th
morning. Dr. Bowman aroen and preached
from the following text; "For the Son of
(nan is come to save that which ia loel,"'
Matbew, XVIII. II."
It Is im|Mt*ihlc to convey a correct im
, pression of the IF# discourse, without a
publication of the entire sermon. This we
have not the power to do. But we think
the niacin thought* would bs suggested by
a few simple proposition*.
I. Sin is in the world beyond doubt
a. Neither Science nor Religion can ex
plain it* or!* In.
b. But religion tell* how ain entered,
and. with that, all our woe with losa of
c. Science is wont to let Mid* tha claims
t religion, because it can not fathom the
jdeoth of the mystery.
Mystery U in everything, Illustration :
water it oxygen and hydrogen. But the
,Kow of tho union science cannot explain,
and yet it luuit believe tha fact. We ak
the tame in religion.
11. The Bible alone haa a remedy for
Science admit* tin, but promts#* no reme
dy. Under thi* head tha Dr. showed hi*
greatest ability. The plan of talvation
was thoroughly explained floni tha bot
tom. The system of Jewish type*, the re
lation ol the ancient worship to tha death of
Jesus, and all the auxiliary mean* institu
ted by Ood to culminate in the death of
Thrift, received a lucid treatment. In the
death of t'hritt culniinale* the plan of sal
vation Tht glorious death was held up
in a new light, at least, new to *oma. In
what did the glory of Christ's death con
sist? Did not martyr* die singiug In the
lltuiics? What mean the strange words,
: "O my Father, if it t>e possible, let this cup
pa** from me V Why was ha reluctant to
, sutfer the death on the cross, whila good
men everywhere render themselves up
I cheerfully ?
Because lie fnsttd itruth fur rerry man,"
Do we understand the force of that word
j "taninl T" Then think, "for trrry man."
' In yielding up himself lie made an offering
1 for the sin* of the entire race. The benefit
of thia death, so glorious in itself and so
iui|Mirtaiit ill its results, the earnvst divine
pressed home to eacn conscience. The
force of the sermon was seen in the tearful
eye* of a convinced congregation. At its
close, the congregation contributed almost
three thousand dollar*. In the evening
Presiding Elder McMurray, preached an
eloquent sermon, niter which the addition
al amount was collected, aim unting in the
total to thirty tlve hundred duilkr*. Ded
icatory services of the M. E. Church were
then performed, after which the Rev. Dr. -
Bowman, pronounced the benediction.
