ull jttft men, which of the two hud in
tlio ulTuIr plityed tlio pint of llio cour

of llio bluek-rutird. Mr. Pnvin wits

ho said by his nt) mid hv his Senato

his rercnjro after tbo most high toned

had nititlo to the Demoeratta siilo of
tlio Ilotiso when he 'il its ciuiKentto
mako the explanation, that he would
say nolhirg personally ollensivo to
Mr. Davis.
Mr. Iti'Tl.FR denied havinir rriven
that pU'duo. He had merely said that
ho would make no attaek upon him.
He hnd for neatly liino years suffered
from assaults and charges of bavitifr
approptialcd . 19 his own use small
amounts of money in Louisiana, antl
tmw ho would answer them once for
all. Ilo hud captured and levied as
sessments on tbo rebels of Louisiana
to tbo amount of nearly ri,)li(,(MHI,
and ho had charged himself w ith the
amount on tho books of llio depart
ment. Thoso books had been open
fur liino year, nnd even delrael'on
hnd not sit id that ho had not lully au
counted for the amount. Refvrrinfj l

creoco to tho investigation as lo the
uiantiiremcnt of llio National Asylum
for Disabled Soldiers, he complained
that the committee had not acted
fairly in the matter in refusing nmnng
other tilings to require tho treasurer
of that institution (Mr. Ilutler) to

tho properly having been owned by
Mr. Ilutler, but having been trans
ferred by him to his brother in law,
Mr. Ilildreth, to cover appeaiat.ces.
In conclusion, ho said thut if thai
transaction nnd tho testimony given
by Mr. Ilutler beforo tho Cotiiinittec
on Military AfTuirs last session were
beforo any petit jury of tho United
States, it would conviet him ( Ilutler j
of embezzlement Hnd perjury. (Luiijrh
ter and great oxeitement.) That was
all ho had lo s:iy.
Mr. lii'Ti.KR remarked that hu held
in his hand u report of the Military
Conimitlco made last scssinn on that'
suhjuit, and ho would read tho clnsinr
paragraphs of it as nn answer to all
that advertised calumny which might
bo put out against him uny where.
The paragraph which ho read states
that tho committee was convinced
that tho funds of tho National Asylum
for Disabled Soldiers had been faith
fully applied by tliu Hoard of Mana
gers, and that tho general manage
ment of llio several branches of the
asylum has been cllleienl. Also, that
tliu commit too hud come tn tho con
clusion that llio treasurer, having ac
counted for ull the funds of tliu usyltim
that ever camo into his hands, was to
be entirely exonerated lioni nny
eliargo or suspicion of misappropria
tion, neglect, or misconduct in llio
discharge of his duties.
Mr. J'cTl.Kit said iu conclusion thut
under that report he branded as false
nnd calumnious everything that could
ho said against llio president und
treasurer of the National Asylum. It
was for tho Military Committeo to
say whether its members had been
corrupted under his (Butler's) load.
They could vindicalo their own honor;
ho had not their donor in charge.
Their report was a shield lo him
ngninsl tho nttuck of any man. He
had no words for a characterisation
of that attack. Gentlemen should
judgo of it fur themselves, coming as
it did under Ihc guiso and ImIso pro
letico of n personal explanation.
There were twelve or fifteen gentle
men of tho Hottso whom bo bail taken
to Fortress Monroe, and to w hom he
had shown the property which ho bad
sold to tho National Asylum; nnd
every mnn who ever saw it would ad
mit that on that transaction ho had
given Jiio.OdU lo the disabled soldiers
Mr. Fahnswoiitii Tho .member
from Massachusetts sworo in tho in
restitution that he did ntit sell it;
llinl his btollier iu law sold it.
Mr. llu.l.r.R Oh, pshaw ! pshaw !
(Laughter.) That was ono of tho
cheats in tho statement. It was put
into tho hands of my brother in law
as security for money which ho lent
Mr. Faiinswortii Your brother
in law sworo that lie did not lend you
any money., Laughter
Mr. I cannot have nny
controversy with that man, whom I
would not believe under oath. (Laugh

Mr. Hkck asked nnd obtained lenvo
to make u statement on behalf of the
.Senator from Kentucky, who, ho said,
bail been so foully denounced by the
member from Massachusetts. That
Senutor and that member hud had a
controversy on tho lloor of the Senate.
Mr. Ilutler Oh, no; I had no con
ttoverscy with him.
Mr. Hkck Tlio Senator denounced
tho member on tho lloor of the Scnalo
as a damned scoundrel, and I would
characterize that us n conlrovursy .
(Laughter.) They had ft quarrel on
tho lloor of tho Setiuto. ll ought to
have ended there, nnd would have
ended lliero but for the fact that the
number from Massachusetts saw ill
tn come on Iho floor if iho House
'pronounced tho speech which hut
been quoted by tbo member. I hi
, member Ifoin Massachusetts, il be
had a personal explanation lo mako,
1 should have made it at once, but In
liau vviiiieu mini iuni ....-T,
! day thai congress was i u.ij"
and then asked leave to make it, h..v-
I . . t. ,
seen il in print. 1 hereupon 1 objec
ted, because it had been held up so
long nnd not because I did not want
to give tho genileman u (banco for
Mr. HtiTl.KR (inlrrriipting) The
reason given by tlio gentleman was
that bo would not lei. me speak so long
a the indictment against his State
was continued.
Mr If I had had nil opportunity
lo reply to that indi. linenl, 1 would
have done it iu a way which I hope
would Imve been worthy of the .Slate
When the genilemiiu was trying to
get leavo to day, 1 asked him whether
bo would ussu.t the Senator from
j Kentucky, and ho replied that b
, would not, and on that slalculeli
; meml-srs on the Democratic side vole

' believe what ho said, and therefore
1 voted against it. (Laughter.) I.e..
j-f .
the member rises and announces that
the Senator from Kentucky has btjen
gailly of falsehood, 1 deny it I hurl
it on ett 11 nil I say Hint llic character
of that Senator U as good ns that of
any man upon earth. Ho never did
wilfully tell a lie, and no man before
ever licensed hi in ol it. W hen the
member said that llio Senator was
dtieldcd by his ago, and Ibnt he
lid not seek the proper redress, I huvo
only to say thut w It ilo my Senator is
neither n, bully nor a blackguard the
the member can get au redress from
him that he seeks, outside of ibis hall
or anywheio else, (Laughter.) I do
uot believe Hint it lies 111 tho mouth
of the member from Massachusetts lo
talk about my Senator being shielded
y loo .igo of not rceliinr niHiu'r re
dress. 1 have witnessed scenes v illi
that member which satisfies mo that
ho would ii"t seek tho redress to
which ho alludes. (Laughter.) He
does not foi'L't'l that 1 huvo in the
presence of tilleen members of tho
House, seen tho member from Illinois
(Farnsworlh) put bis fist in the face
of tho member from Massachusetts,
denounce hint in cveiy way that one
man can denounce another, until J
had to sny to other members of ihu
committee standing by llial 1 did not
think ono white iniin would t.iku it
without n fight, and that tho decent
negroes in New York Stato would
fight over it. (I prournus laughter.)

Mr. lii'Ti.KR (pointing to Mr. i tirns
worth) Ho is not a white man.

lime lo call in the chaplain. (Con
linuous laughter.)
Mr. Cox Ihc coroner should also
he sent for.
Mr. Stocoiiton, a member of the
Military Cointniltco of the last House,
delended tbo action and the report of
thut committee, und stated that the
vouchers of too gcntleuiaii from Massa
chusetts, in reference to tho National
Asylum, had been submitted to the
committee, and sho ved Hint ho had
fairly nnd honestly .expended every
dollar he hud received from ihuTroas.

I mo that tho committee did not ro

no pretence that he had converted o

The Moral Lubrica'or.
Tho great moral lubricator which
makes everything in human lilo run
wilhiiiit friction, is Bond temper. As
soon as this is exhausted, tho journals
of tho human inaeltiiiu begins to neat,
ami wear, and screech, nud the entire
mechanism becomes noisy nud ruin
ous, wasteful of power.
"Tho bor-'C that frets, is tho horse
that sweats," Is an old saying of
Inn semen, and it is just us true of men
ai of horses. Tho man that allows
himself lo get irritated nl every little
thing ihat goes umiss in his business,
or in tho ordinary it flairs of life, is n
man UihI, ns a rule, will nrcnmplish
little, nnd wear out early. Ilo is a
man for whom bile antl dyspepsia
havo a parlietihir fondness, and for
whom children have a particular aver
sion. Ho is a man willi n perpetual
thorn in his side, which pricks and
wounds al the sliL'hest movement;
it man for whom life has little pleasure,
and the future small hope.
To "keep jolly" under all provne.i
lions is perhaps rt task which only
Dickens' Mark Tapley could perform.
Wo never huvo met Mat k Taoley in
our cxperietico of human nuture, but
we huvo seen him closely npproximu
ted ; und it would bo well il people in
general could approach more nearly
that inimitable character.
In all phases, emergencies, nnd oc
cupaliotis of human lilo, good temper
is n commodity for which there is
at demand : but In llioso wincn
bring un individual into daily contact
uilh many others, perhaps in greatest
demand nnd most limited supply.

There is ono question in the consid
eration of this siihject, fundamental in
its nature, and yet lo be solved, wlictli-
er two races can live togotlier on terms
of equality in tho same country and
under tho same system ol laws, who
are essentially different in origin color,

It was slated without contradiction,
by lespcclaldo 'gentlemen In a meet
ing where several high Sinlo olliciuls
were present, that the expenses of the
Legislature beforo tho war ; averaged
about 8 1 ), WO ; this lust session bills
woro passed for expenses amounting
to ?!00,l)00. Tho item of stationery
before the wnr did not exceed SW0
per session; last session tliu bill for
that purpose was f 10.000. About one
bundled und twenty attaches of the
Legislature aro now paid; formerly
leu or twclvo were ample. ' As lo
tho olliccis, we might desciibc our
county ollicials ns'an average. Our
county superintendent of education is
a black man who can read big print;
cai) u tile a bad school boy hand, wilh
probably at ithmetiu enough to man
age n simple sum in addition. Lasl
j ear ho reported two schools under
iiis sapervision, for which services be
has a salary of $1,000 per uniiuin.
Our County auditor is a colored Inan,
wilh an education about equal to the
above named. Our county cummin
isotiers a i-o three colored men, ono ol
whom only can write bis liamo. Our
Kepresentative consist of ono while
and two colored men, the former said
to lie a Canadian und H total stranger
to tlio people of the county; of tho
two latter ono cannot write his name;
tho other niity perform thut (cut in
sort tif way. These are specimens of
our ollicials.
Tho while people see nocsctipo from
this load of corruption and ignorance
by tho ballot or other peaceable rem
edy. The negroes take advantage of
their iiumbcis, array themselves in
solid mass, nnd refuse ollicc or voice
to iho other race. 1j it any great
wonder that tho latter become dissat
isfied and turbulent, and endeavor to
right themselves by tlio band of vio
Icncc ? Tho result is most deplorable.

' l'efore tho wur iho people of South

fully and impartially. A serious
change has taken place, lo tho detri
meiii of the Stale and country. Il
docs not requiro any great depth ot
peiiclrulioti to undefoland tho cause
of it -
The remedy for Ihcso disturbances
ii tho most difficult. With tho .res
ent preponderance of the ignorant Slid

any hope for the better. If the intel
