/The Clerk was proceeding, but Mr.
(BROOKS seemed determined not to be

right to appeal from the tyranny of the
Clerk." , •

gentleman from New York would not
take his seat on the Order of the Clerk.
The Clerk reminded :•, Mr. Brooks that
the Clerk was acting under the authority
of law.
Mr. BROOKS was not -to be appeased
in that manner, and declared the Clerk
was not acting under such authority, but
,in violation of all law. [Loud cries of
order andeat confusion.]
Mr. W SEt
BURNE, of Illinois, de
rnanded e Clerk should put the ques
tion on nomination for Speaker, and he
nominated James G. Blaine, of Maine.
Mr. BROOKS insisted on his right of
appeal and tried to make himself heard,
but his voice was drowned in shouts of
"Call the roll." -
The Clerk once more directed Mr.
. Brooke to take his seat. i
' Mr. BROOKS refused and asserted he
was a member of the House, while the
peraon undertaking to dictate to him was
:,. a Clerk of the House. • :
• The Clerk retorted the gentleman was
. not a member of the House, but only a
member elect. ' - ,
Mr. BROOKS—And the Clerk is not
the - Clerk of the House, nor even a Clerk
--• The
en .
By the gentleman was
mistaken. By the law the Clerk of the
last House was the Clerk of this body.

laws and rules,, and the rule is that pend

Mr. BROOKS, interrupting—l know it
is;bdt the Clerk ' , is bound by the law,
and is bound to hoar the law.
The Clerk—The Clerk is enforcing the
law. .__. - -
- Mr: BROOKS—The Clerk is not en
forcing the law, but is violating it. [Great
confusion and excitement.]
Mr. WASHBURNE, Ill:—The member
from New York should be put under at . -
'est by the, Sergeantot-Arms. .
, _
At We time - almost' all the members
were on their feet, Republicans calling
to order and Democrats meaning Mr.
Brooks, and the excitement was intense
on the floor and in the galleries.
Mr. ELDRIDGE inquired, as a ques
tion of order, by what rules the Clerk
was governed, by, the.rules of the House
or the law of the land?
The Clerk replied—He was governed
by the law of the land and ,the rules of
the House.
Mr. ELDRIDGE—Is it the law of the
land which the gentleman seeks to have
enforced, and the Clerk refuses to enter
tain an appeal ?I do not believe the ma
jority here today would deny the right
of appeal to a-merriber. [Loud shouts of
"Call the rolL",]
The TMerk,'in the midst of the now in
omit isinglatinfusion, inquired whether.
-there were an* other nominations to the
,office of Speaker?
• Mr: ELDRIDGE, however„persisted
-in keening the floor and trying to make
himeolt heard. He would- not "say the
Clerk was not right, but he would say
the right of appeal was allowe&to mem
bers of Congress, and he dematided that
right. now.. [Applause• and encourage
ment from Democrats.]
Mr. :JONES, of Kentucky, addressed
the Clerk, bat ho was met with vocifer
ous scouts of." call the roll."
Mr. ELDRIDGE put it to the other
side, whether when an appeal was ,taken
in respectful language it should be de
nied? "
• Mr. BROOKS—It neyer has been de
- Mr. ELDRIDGE—It never would be,
denied, bat that we are all slaves to
great excitement. I appeal to the sense
of justice of the men who hold the poWer
of the majority. , ,
Mr. JONES, of kentucky—l desire to
make a point of order. I desiroto have
the ruleread which secures the right of
appeal. '
Mr. LOGAN-I appeal to the Clerk to
keen order. If the gentlemen are de
, termined to make a display of this kind,
I ask that the-Clerk shall have them ar
rested by the Sergbant-at-Artris._
This suggestion was 'received by clap
ping of hands on the Republican side and
in the galleries. : , ,
Mr. BROOKS defied - the 'gentleman
• , from Illinois to make any arrests.
The Clerk again inquired whether
there were any other nominations for
Speaker? -
Mr. ELDRIDGE persisted in appeal
ing to the sense of justice of the major
ity. [Cries of "call the roll."]
Mr-BROOKS—I insist on my right to
appeal.. ' - 5
The Clerk called upon-Messrs. Cullom,
Kelsey, Woodward and Voorhees to act
as tellers in counting the vote for
Mr. 'ELDRIDGE —I ask the gentlemen
if they will not let, us appeal from the
arbitrary action of the Clerk? [cries of

piano° and great excitement.]

' Mr. LOGAN--We'll do it onrselveth
[Applause and encouragement on the
Repa]alican side, and laughter and de
fiandflaan the Democratic side.]
Mx. LOGAN, menacingly—lf ,I were
Sergeant-at-Arms. I. would' do it very
quick, be assured of that. •
Mr. STOKES at the''] tame time was
vociferating in an excited manner and
threatening some sort of vengeance:on
the Democrats, but the only words that
~ he reporter dietinguished were to the
oraot that . : Democratic members were
worse thin rebels.. 46
. : To this Mr., ELDRUX/E. replied 130133G
thing Which seemed to be sii invitation
to Mr. Stokes to send on biti rebel soldiers.
[Uproar. confusion and excitement.]
', The Clerk called on Messrs. Wood
ward and - Voerbees to take their plums
as tellers at the ,dest. where the other
tellers Were already. Seated.
Mr. Woodward complied - with the sum
mons, but Mr. Voorhees seemed reluc-
Then Mr.. WOODWARD' returned to
his seat and made some conciliatory re
marks as to Mr. Brooks having the right
to appeal, and suggesting the appeal be
entertained and decided by the House.
The Clerk stated he had no desire to
. make a decision that would do violence
to the feelings of any member ' or to do
anything that would throw the body into
confusion; but he was obliged to adman
_ later the law so as to 'effect the prime
duty of the House. He regretted that
any decision of his should be regarded
by any gentleman as' an invasion of his
personal rights, for it was not so in
• tended. He-appealed to the tellers to
r . take their places. _ ,
..., - Mr. BROOKS, satisfied with the re-
marks of t e Clerk, withdrew his a
peas, but without aequiesting in the d
cision., •
The tellers took Wei. places, th e
storm which had looked so portentioul
passed away, and all was apparentl,
serene again.
Mr. RANDALL, nominated. Mr. Ker
of Indiana, for Speaker. •
- The vote resulted, James G. Blaine 131
Michael C. Kerr '55,
The Clerk thereupon announced

The ceremony haring been perform:
amid general satisfaction, the Speak
elect delivered his opening speech. I
Gent/eine - 2z of the House of Represen
Caves—l thank you profoundly for t e
great honor which your votes have ju t
oonferro upon me. The gratiticati
which Allis signal mark of your con •
derice brings to me finds its only dra -
ba,:k in the diffidence with which I
slime the weighty duties devolved ur n
me. - Succeeding to a chair made ill ti
tri,,us by the services of such Peril -
ruentarians as Clay, Stevenson; and Pol ,
and Winthrop, and Banks, And Grow;
and Colfax, I may well distrt my abil
ity to mein the just expectatio s of thctse
who have shown me such ma ked parti
ality. But relying, gentlem n, on my
honest purpose to perform all my duties
faithfully and fearlessly, and rusting in
a large measure to the indulgence's hieh
ram MILO 'o3li will always extend to me,
I shall hope to retain, as I have secured,
your confidence, your kindly and gener
ous support.
The Forty-first Congress, assembled at
an auspicious period in the history of
our Government, the splendid and im
pressive ceremonials which we have just
witnessed in another part of the Capitoli
appropriately symbolizes the triumphs
of the past and hopes of the future. A
great chieftain, whose sword at the head
of gallant and victorious armies saved
the Republic from dismemberment'and
ruin, has been fitly called to the highest
civic honor which a grateful people can
bestow. Sustained by a Congress that
BO ably represents the loyalty, the patri
otism and personal worth of the nation,
the President this day inaugurated will
assure to the country an adminiatration
of purity and prosperity. an era of Libern
ty regulated by 'Law, and of Lim , thor=
oughly inspired with Liberty. Congrat
ulating you, gentlemen, on the happy
auguries of the day, and invoking the
gracious blessings of Almighty , Mid on
the arduous and - -responsible labors be
fore you, I am ready to take the oath of
office, and enter upon the \discharge of
the duties to which you have called me.
The oath was then solemnly adminis
tered by Mr. Wishbuine, of Illinois, the
senior member of the House.
When the ceremony of swearing the
members commenced, they were called
up in batches of twenty or thirty at a
time, arranged themselves in the area in
front of the Speaker's chair, and took the
oath with uplifted hands.
When the New -York members were
about to take the oath, Mr. SCHENCK
called attention to the case.of Mr. Reeves,
from the First District, who had been
represented to him as having given aid
and encouragement to the rebels while
editing the Greenport Watchman.
The SPEAKER asked Mr. Schenck
whether he submitted any motion on the
Mr. SCHENCK said he did not, and
thereupon the New York members ; in
eluding Mr. Reeves, were sworn.
Objection was made by Mr. BUTLER
to Mr. Hamill, of Maryland, by Mr.
SCHENCK to Messrs.. Winchester and
Rice, of Kentucky, and by Mr.-BROOKS
to Messrs. Van Horn and Dyer, of Mis.
souri, and these gentlemen stepped aside'
and did not take the oath.
Mr. LAWRENCE, of Ohio, objected
to Mr. Rogers, of Arkansas, and offered
a resolution on the subject, but the reso
lution was laid on the table, and Mr.
Rogers sworn.
All the members, with these excep
tions, and the Delegates, having been thus
sworn, the House, at half past five, ad
' jonrned.
The announcement of a Republican
caucus for to-morrow morning .at half
, j past ten was made by the Clerk.

Another shocking case of suicide oc
curred in Allegheny yesterday. The

on Chestnut street, Seventh ward, and
was by occupation a baker. For several
-days past, it is said, he had been drink

gloomy and despondent. Yesterday of
some of the neighbors in the

cries coming from the house, and upon

deavoring to stop the flow of blobd from
1 a hideous gash in the throat oilier hus

fortunate man. Notwithstanding every

How Do They ,Llyf?
This question, - Linde!' home oircumstan
cos, might be"conAidered ah impertinent
one, and, for aught we linow, may be in
this instance, nevertheless our "natural
curiosity" or desire for infortnation,
which ever it may be, prompts us to pro
pound it. "=Day after day the several
County Court rooms are crowded from
theripening of the Court until it adjourns
with a set of able-bodied, healthy look
ing men, whose only object there seems
to be to hear and see what Is going on.
The same faces that were seen there yes
terday will be seen in the same places
to-day and to-morrow. The appearance
of most of the persons referred to does
not indicate them to be men of leisure, or
at least the possessors of sufficient means
to live without labor, hence the question
"how do they live?" Idleness is one of
the first steps to crime, gird It should not
be countenanced either by individuals or
communities, as both suffer to a greater
or less extent from its consequences.
A Thief Captured.
Yesterday evening Charles A. Hunter,
a young man, and evidently a stranger
in the city, wfp arrested at Smithson &
Co.'s auction store on a charge of larcerd.
He was in the store for some time, and it
appears managed to get possession of a
pair of shoes, which he secreted under
his coat unobserved. He then endeavor
ed *to make his way out through the
crowd, when his manner attricted the
,attention of some one who informed one
*of the employes that he thought Hunter
had stolen something. He was stopped
and an officer called in, who took charge
of him and conducted him to the lock
up. On arriving at the watch-house,
Capt. Graham 'searched him and found in
his possession a pair of shoes, which
were identified as having come from
Smithson & Co.'s by one of the ,em
ployes. Hunter alleged that be pur
chased the shoes in the morning, but
could not tell' where. Ho will have a
hearing this morning
' A Brutal Husband. -
Mrs. Mary Hopfield called at the Alba- ,
gheny Mayor's office yesterday miming
and stated ,that he husband, Henry 1
Tloptield, while in a h3toxicated condi-
Oen, had beat and ab sed her t in atibame
ful manner; Hopfield has been in the
habit of indulging i thisTmanly amuse
ment, and but a fetv days ago was re
leased from punishment for the offense

The Rink.
The Keystone Skating 'Rink will be

those interested. In addition to the
other attractions to-night, Prof. Yeager

Cool Preceeding.—Alfred McWil
liams made information before Alder
man Mitchell yesterday against William
Heshett for larceny as bailee. The 'par
ties reside in the Nineteenth Ward (late
East Liberty). The prosecutor alleges
that the accused and George M'Combs
gave him a joint note in settlement of an
account, about two months ago. Yes
terday, he states, Heshett called upon
him and Biked to see the note, which he
immediately pocketed and carried off
with him. Heshett was arrested, and
after a hearing gave bail in the sum of
five hundred dollars for trial.
Alleged Aggravated Assault --Timothy
Kelly, an ex-policeman, made informa
tion before Alderman Strain, yesterday,
against Wm. McClure and John Paisley
for aggrayated assault and battery. The
prosecutor states that while` he was a
policeman under Mayor Blackmore, the
accused attacked and beat him one night
without provocation. Prosecution was
entered before the Mayor at tbt time,
but the matter was afterwsulds dtopped.
The present information is therefore a
revival of the ease. A warrant was
Disorderly Bearder.—Thos. Richard

OPERA House. The andienca at the
Opera House last evening was one of the
largest and most fashionable thafhas as
sembled at that establishment during the
present season, and we have never seen
Lotta play better. The "Female Detec
tive," a piece admirably adapted to Lot
ta's peculiar and original style, giving
full range to tier versatile talent, was pre
sented in a highly acceptable manner.
There is none of that affectation of incli
nation to imitate, so irksome to an audi
ence, about Lotta. Her style is peculiar
to herself and entirely original. The bill
for to-nighrcomPrises "Capt. Charlotte,"
Brougham's builesque of "Pocahontas,"
and "Family Jars.' As . this is the ocda
sion of Lotta's benefit, we anticipate a
crowded house.
Victorelli Brothers continue to be the at
traction at the American Theatre,, and
they have, so far proven a very forcible
and profitable one to the Manager. The
houses are crowded every night, and
doubtless will be so long as these re

tertainment. ,
