Mr. Butler refused to yield, and con
tinued with his argument. He warned
the Republican members, that if Missis
sippi and Getirgla were not reconstructed
with loyal legislatures, the Fifteenth
Ainendment could not be passed, and
they would lose half a dozen States.
Every man on the other side of the
house knew that well, and laughed in
his sleeve at those Republicans whom
they got to do their work. They knew
right well What they were about. He
knew them of old. , He used to be one of
them. (Laughter.) They used the
Whigs, in the olden days, as the monkey
used the cat's paw to pull chestnuts
out of the 'tire. Referring to the re
marks of Mr. Farnsworth yesterday,
:1.9 to,his taking , up the cudgel
for th black man years ago, when men
who were now Republicans were acting
with the alaveholders' party. he said some
Persons thought more of Judas than of
Paul, because Judas was the older apos
tle of the two. Mr. Butler would wait'
to give the vote to the white men of the
South, until it would be safe for every
Union man in the South to sleep in his
cabin with the latchstring out. Then be
would go with the gentleman (Mr. Farns
worth) for the black men, and not till
then; so help him God, not till then.
The House then proceeded to vote on
Mr. Farnsworth's motion. to postpone the
bill till the first Monday In December
next, and the bill was postponed—yeas

recognition. As sanctioned by the Com
mittee it provides for a joint resolution
of sympathy with the people of Cuba in ,
their struggle for independence, and
pledges Congress to give Its constitu
tional support to'PreSidept Grant, when
ever he may deem it expedient to for
mally recognize the independence of the
island. There is no doubt of its adoption
by both Houses. and the friends of Cuba
state that it will exercise an important
influence on the war, by securing the
revolutionists moral as well as, physical
support. It is expected the Spanish Min
ister will present a remonstrance to the

An Expensive Breakfast.
There seems to be a diversity of opin-
ion about one of Cleopatra's-breakfasts.
It was the most costly breakfast that haa
ever been served. to a Single, human be..
ing. I will, therefore, tell what I know
about it. After having partaken of Cieo
patra's necklace, Mark Antem,y deter
mined to devise ,the costliest 'breakfast '
ever given. After several days of gastra, „
nomical meditations, not havingi found -
what he was looking for,. he sum:toted -
his cook to his .presence and told - him.that, if he could get up a dainty breakfast
for .a lady, which should—be composed of
as few and as small (althea as possible, ,
and at the same time t be moat costly, he
would ieward:hlm accOrdingly,
Several weeks afterward,, the cook en
tered Mark AntOityrs athdy, and told him
that he was,ready
,to serve the dainty'
'breakfast asked and that
it = Was
compose(' of one ohve only. At the
pointed hour, - the Cook 'entered the
room, followed ty one hundred men cal •
riing the ()Hie (in its artificial eifielopri)
on their shoulder& = They. deposited it on
a table %mho occasion,•and , :fifty carvers
were set to work on. it. - , After severan
hours of hard work, the triumphant`cook
placed the olive before the Egyptian

Front an esteemed correspondent sta-
Itioned at Fort Macon, North Carolina,
we have received the particulars of a sin.
gular and fatal accident which occurred
there on Sunday night last. There are
about fifty army prisoners confined there
under guard. On the day previous two
_ companies, of the Bth Infantry, regulari,
relieved the 40th Infantry, who bad ,bben
guarding the post. The new officer of the
day gave strict orders that any' body leaf
ing the Fort after dark should be halted
by the guards . and shot if they did not
come to a halt. That night the cry of fire
was raised, a chimney burning causing it,
When the officer of the day and some sol
diers ran up to the top of ,the ramparts Vl
see where the fire was. The green guards.
`hearing the cry of "fire, fire,' mistook it
for a command, and fired with their mus
lets on their Comrades,' instantly killing
one and mortally'wounding the officer or
the day. • - - '
