Mr. SMITH, (Chester,) acting ..on.the ;part
of the officers of the House titen_pre; len fed.
to Speaker - tiothigairiChatiO gold-b .eatled
cane as a testimonial. Of "their gnitefiir appre
ciation of the obligations under which he hid
placed them by his kind and courteou s bear
ing toward. them. Mr. SMITH, in making this
presentation, spoke as follows:
,Mr. Speaker, the officers of this House have
requeSted' tee, in their narue, to-prest Lut this
cane to you.. They make the offeri ag as a
token of respect and regard for you, bothin
your personal and official relations mien them.
They are not without the hope, also, fad after
their separation from you, when you use it or
see it, you may revert with recollocticati'of
satisfaction to your intercourse with
and with the fneling that' however theymay
have failed practically, it was their desire and
effort to sustain you , in conducting the busi
ness of the House, and to yield without re
luctance to your directions. They desire, too,
to take this occasion to say, that they have
met at your hands, at all times,' kindness: and
consideration, which, they appreciate and will
not. forget. For these they direct me to ex
press their hearty thanks, and to say that they
will not pass from their recollection.
We all can, doubtless, recur to instances
when, to have separated from a strange travel
er into whose company we had casually fallen
on our way, has caused real sorrow; and we
have felt—what is true—that even this slight
tie had not altogether broken its connection,
although we may have been well assured• that
our first and last meeting was the same. But
when, after; a daily intercourse of months,
acquaintance;' has ripened into affectionate
friendship, separation, which may be final,
and,which forebodes with ; reasonable certainty
that there will be, no subsequent' meeting in
the same circumstances-is accompanied with
a pang which is not soon soothed. Such is
their feeling. now. May it not be yours also?
They desire me to express to you their wishes
for the future welfare and success of your
life, which they hope the blessing of Provi
dence may make useful and prosperous.
Hoping, too, that in its path you may meet
more efficient friends, they are assured you
will none-more sincere.
And, Mr. Speaker, allow me, to say .fI~C my
self, although not`sustaining, toward you pre
cisely the same relation as those for.whom
have spoken, that everything that I say in the
name of these officers, so far as it is appropri
ate, I wish to be considered as saying for my
self. Ourintercourse, sir, extends back be
yond this session. We met last year, and Un
der circumstances 'very much the same; but at
that time we were upon the floor together. 11
may,say that, during the whole of lastaession,
your bearing toward me was marked-by Mud
ness and even by respect, which, probably
you rendered rather on account of my years
than by reason of any right on my part to
claim it. I may say, also, at the breaking up
of this session, and in view of what must be,
so far as I am concerned, our list meeting, it
is with sincere sorrow that I separate from
every man in this House. I know myself,
perhaps, better than any man who knows me.
There are with all of us at times ebullitions of
feeling which have their unpleasantness; but
these die with the moment. In leaving this
Hall, I trust that all our recollections may be
those of kindness. That which has had an
appearance of asperity, let it be buried in ob
livion; and if we meet not again on this earth,
may we all of us "meet beyond the river,
where the surges cease to roll."
F. Speaker JOHNSON then said: Mr.

with grateful pride; and appreciatirig the
kindness of the officers who - have t'aus hon

charge of the onerous dutien devolving on him
during our protracted session.
• The resolution was unanimously adopted.
Mr. BARGER then, on behalf of the Demo
cratic members of the House, presented to
Mr. BENEMICT a gold-headed cane.
Mr. BARG-ER said ' : fir. Speaker, I am
charged by my friends on this side with the
discharge of a very pleasant duty—a duty
- which I assume with cheerfulness, because it
affords me the .opportunity to pay a proper
taibute to a faithful officer and a gentleman.
I am directed by the gentlemen upon this side
of' the House to present to the Chief Clerk
this small testimonial of their regard for him.
their appreciation and=,': their estimation
of the faithful 'manner in which he has
discharged his duties as Clerk of this
Honse. think nay, I know that I ,
echo the feelings , of all_upon this side
of the HOLM when :I Say tat they fully and
entirely appreciate the faithful manner in
which the - retiring Clerk has diricharged the
duties of his position. For myself, I may be
,permitted to say that I join in this testimonial
with the 'heartiest cordiality. I became ac
quainted With Mr. Benedict last year when
":both he anal sat upon this,floor as' members
of the Honse. He then, it is true, bore to
, nrard me the relation of a political opponent,
lint, independently of that,' he exhibited the
social qualities'of a kind and cuorteous gentle
man. Time and again have I applied to , him
for assistance; time and again has he cheer
fully acceded it, as would a:father to a ,son.
Mr. Speaker, in receiving this testimonial,
Set remember that it carries - with it 'the
kind feelings and the "good wishes of the do
nors • and, in after years, when passing down
the-deolining yale, and when looking at this
gift, clitstering as it is with'the good feelings
of those, who present it, '1 bid him recollect
that, although they were pblitically opposed'
to him, yet by his kindness of manners and
his able discharge'of his dUties, ' he won the
united esteem of all, the members of this body.
Mr. BENEDICT,' - ln receiving the testimo
nial, said : This evidence of your kindness
and confidence, thie assurance that you have
been satisfied with the execution of the im
portant and responsible trust committed to
my charge, flatters and overwhelms me. In the
turmoil and-strife 'of life, when worn with its
cares and toils, we gladly and gratefally turn to
the warm greetingT and Welponis pthindits of
'Mends. The strain Upon the mental and
physical energies is relieved, by the soothing
touch and influence of the dear ones we loyal
lean now feel and 'appreciate hoW delightful
is that kindness ministered by those upon
whose kindness I have no claim.
Self-opinionated sobstinancy often sepa
rates those who ought to'be ever' friends.
Among all the surroundings of life, no so
mischievous,. no so malevolent spirit is found
as the demon of politicsnot the hone 4 dif
ferences of honest men—notihnt philosophy
of investigation - whichjeads differently organ-.
ized min& in opposite direeticins.` Theee'are
kilt separate paths which active inquiry finds
and follows in its search fOr truth, 'but that
other spirit which assumes ,and asserts its em;
pineonly in partikan , struggle's for place or
polwer—that spirit which cannot see its own,
yet prates of the faulte'and frailties of those
whom it assails,' We should get nearer to
each other,. and speak not 'what we hear, but
what we know, tempering our tongues only
with truth and fairness. As years and the
afflictions of the world have whitened my
locks and sobered the hoelmpulses of my
heart, they have graven these convictions
firmly upon it. -
The partiality and kindness of personal and
poh tical friends called me to' the duties of
this Josh i your approval and endorsement
cheers and gladdens me as 1 retire from its
active 1 shore. I stand to-day in the presence
of you a 11, and in the, presence of Him who
searcheth' the heart, and I have aright to' say
that I ha` 13 tried to do my whole duty. No
difference of opinion, no 'attachment - or prej
udice has t urned me from my purpose. I
felt the poet's wisdom when he wrote—
"To t.ltine own self be true,
And it mm. It follow, as the night the day,
Thou cans't .not then be false to any man."
May I not aocopt this kind gift in the spirit
that gave it?
We shall soon Wit. In this day, when the
shock and the calarilities of war produce won
derful transitions, wk.` cannot foretell what lies
in the future. For niy , self; of the members of

lar. SHABPE offered the following resolu:
- Belayed, That the thanks of this body are
hereby tendered to on A . .• Swum, Esq., As

courteous conduct to the members of this
Mr. BIGHAM. Mr. Speaker, some nine
teen years ago, wh en I flrithad thehonor of a
seat on this floor, Vhe gentleman referred to
in this resolutiOn Was a sort of- go-between—
errand boy, page, clerk—making himself use
ful in all capacitie s. He was then a slight
boy; he has, of course, changed a good deal
since that time, 1:1• i p to the period to which I
refer, the system .of pages, etc., that has
since been organized, did -not exist; I
may remark that Mr. Smull Was; to some
extent, the means of the introduction of that
system. By his uniform industry, attention
and urbanity, he has made himself a-neces
sity with all the members of this House. He
has become, imagine, a fixture. His use
fulness is so generally recognized that I sup
pose, so long as he lives and the Legislature
continues to meet here, the members of this
House will not consent to part with him. I

man fram Franklin.

Mr. SHIM' RE, After a few prelitninary
narks refeiring . to *the soleimi reflections nat
urally excited by the scene of separation
about to take place in the House, continued:
The Democratic members of this Rouse have
charged me, Mr. Smull, with the agreeable
duty of placing in your hands this. cane as a
thank-offering-for your fidelity and urbanity,
your genial deportment as a gentleman and
your impartiality and integrity as an officer
of this House. This gift is of very little in
trinsic value, but as an honest expression of
our esteem of your worth—an expression em
enating from sincere hearts—we trust that
you will prize it highly for the sake of those
who gave it, and more especially as an evi
dence that even in these degenerate days,
the faithful discharge of duty, still exacts the
tribute of homage and admiration, and that
now the couplet is as fully recognized to be
true as ever it was—
"Honor or shame from no condition rise;
Act well, your part; there all your honor
It would be very agreeable to me to dwell
loriger upon this subject; buy I desist because
I am conscious that upon occasions like the
present the deepest feeling is but expressed
by silence, and that a multiplication of words
would be very apt to chill the . fervor of our,
hearts. With many gentlemen upon both
sides of the • chamber, intercourse and ac
quaintance with you have been 'of several
years standing; with myself they have been
the growth of a few months. But the, merit
which can make friends in a.few months, and
bind them withlinks - o4.steel,:as if by the ex;.
perience , of years, is of ft,:very high order.
Let me assure you, sir, in the, name of these
gentlementand - for myself that you have done
se. If I were to exhaust the language of the
heart, I could not bestow upon you a higher
meed.of praise than that Iwith which youri•own
character and deportment have crowned vu.
Now, you are young and your footstelf is
elastic; you need not this cane lo support
you. But 50 years hence, if 'a kind Provi
dence should so long spare your life, that
form will be bent under the weight of fouv
score years, and that elastic tread will be
changed to the tottering footstep of feeble
old age; and then what a pleasing spectacle
it will be to see the youth bf 'to-day leaning
for support %fon the staff placed in Ali hands
by his friends ill the 'Lagislature' of 1864: I
know not that any of us will be living to see
'that day. Bat if, in the mysterious provi
dence of God, we should 'depart, this mute
stick will then become eloquent with a hun
dred tougues, , speaking of joys that lie buried
in the grave of the year of our Lord one thou

Par.• Smull;- in receiving the testifinmial, (a
beautiful gold-headed cane,) said: This expres

Brown, Esq., their grateftd,ackuowledgments
for the faithful . disehafge'Cif 'his duties during
the session of the L,egislidule.
Mr. glalg,DETthen, proceeded to .present.
to Mr. Bimini, a '&ld-headed cane saying:
Mr. Speaker, the Democratic members of this
House; appreciating the 'many kindnesses of
our first assistant clerk, have charged.ine with
a very unpleasant duty. In .. a *Ord, Mr.
Speaker, they have charged me to cane our as

also charged me, in doing so, not to hurt him
very much! As our time is faSt running out,
I will not detain the` House by a speech, but
without saying more,_will present to Mr.
Brown this testimonial. ''•
Mr. BROWN, in responding, said : Gen
tlemen, I accept of this testimonial with gra
titude which words are not able fo express.
I certainly had no right to elpectithis testi
monial of regard from the Democratic mem
bers of the House, or the very flattering, man
ner in which the House has seen fit to spdak
of my services in the resolution which has
been passed. Such a preSent as this over
comes me. Permit me, however, to say thitt,
in the performance of my duties, I have
ever endeavored to discharge them impar
tially without respect to party. Although
I am indebted, it is true, to the Republican
side of the House for my, position, I have en
deavored to remember that I was the 'Servant
of the whole House, Democrats as well as Re
publicans, aril that I have so far succeededin
discharging my duties as not to receive the
censure of either side, certainly gratifies me
exceedingly. Ddelight to be caned under such
circumstances. Permit me to tender to you
all my thankk. . I will treasure this testimo
nial, and will ever look upon it with feelings
of pride and pleasure.
Mr. JOSEPHS offered the following re.soln

the arduous duties devolving on them durin , 7
Mr. Speaker JOHNSON said: Gentlernen,
officers of the 'House, raccept this handsome
gift of yours with feelings of gratitude ; and I
shall ever prize it highly, not merely on ac
count of.its intrinsic worth, but in view of the
kind feelings which have proinpted those who
gave it. -We met comparatively as strangers ;
we separate as friends. It is often said that •
the true method: by, which to discover the
qualities of a man is to accompany him on a
long sea voyage, or a long journey 'by land.—
We, in the performance - °row. several du
ties, have ,- journeyed together An the: saane
road for four months ; and, Jet me say, gen
tlemen,: that if, during that. time, I have
not been able and' heintily . supported
in my relation as Speaker of this House, I
have been unconsciona 'Of the fact. When I
have thought of the aid which I have received
at this desk—wheni have thought of the aid
which I have'received at your hands—l haVe
exclaimed to myself, "Was ever man in this
position sustained as I have been?" And,
gentlemen, when, 'after our separation, .we
look back to our associations -connected with
this House,, I, for one, will always revert to
them with feelings of pleature, and never
will I be able to take. this stick in my hands
'without thinking of, those who presented it.
Gentlemen of the House of Representatives,
the dial admonishes me that it is proper that
I should be brief in what I shall say to you.
I have made no preparation for-this occasion.
I have thought that the occasion would sug
gest what might be called for. What has been
said to-day has been so far in advance of any. ,
thing that I had aright to expect or hope for
that I scarcely know what to say in reply to
your words of kindnesivor hovi to expresstay
egitude for your acts of generosity. When
wp niet here four months ago, many of us met
as former friends,
.bnt a &ll greater number
as strangers to each other, You placed mein
PRICE TWO CENTS.
this high and, responsible position. I entered
upon its &idles with a sincere diitrust of my
capabilities to perforni all that might- be in
cumbent upon me. I -appealed to you
for aid in my weakness, and that appeal, did
not fall upon, unwilling ears or ungenerous
hunts. Through this long and laborious ses
sion, I have frequently felt that I have erred.
I have felt that in that respect I have. perhaps
been weaker than the ordinary Si - eakness of
mortality. But I protest, gentlemen, in your
presence and before Heaven, that thoSe errors'
were of the head and not of the „heart. If
any man, by the administration of the func
tions of this Chair, has at any time felt hini
self aggrieved, let him put it down' as
certain as that we live and breathe, that
there was no spirit of malevolence—no act
of intended unkindness on the part of the.
Speaker. When we separate to-day, we sepa
rate, so far' as I am_concerned, wholly and
unreservedly friends. There has been no act
of this sesion, no act of this day, that can.
leave in my heart an unpleasant recollection.
This session has been distinguished by un
usual kindness Of feeling. served as a mem
ber of, this House through the session pre
ceeding this, and I have been associated with
others who have served here through many
years; and it has been a matter Of general
remark that, their has been less of personal
asperity, less of personal unkindness, than
has ever been known at any previous session.
This might be expected. We have among
us men of nnsual ability—many men of
great kindness of heart, and as a gener
ialt thing men of courteous and devdted
deportment' in their social intercourse.
Gentlemen, to have presided over a body of this
kind, embracing men of acknowledged ability,
many, men who have already mad ,their mark

character of some of the men who sit in this

their moral and intellectual worth, I feel that
I have attained far beyond my deserts in the
kindness and generosity with which they have
sustained rile at all times, and I feel that if I
had not been sustained with:this, I Might say,
munificence of kind men, my 'adirdnistration
would hain beiniii a failure :- ;rforz
the kindness, c tfor the honor of which I have
been the recipient, I will be forever grateful..

The letter from Fortress Monroe dated the
3d inst., in regard to the evacuation of Little
Washington,is evidently a great exaggeration,

says, several refugees have arrived from Little
They report that the place was burned last
Saturday, probably by a guerrilla party. It
should be remembered that Little 'Washington
was only a very, small town, which in its most
prosperous days had only aboot 2,000 inhabi
tants, was built mainly of wood, so that it is
absurd.to speak of a loss of several millions.

:XXVlllth Congress—First Session.
WASHINGTON, May 5.
Bishop Clarke (Rhode Island) made the
Itir. CoHamer (Vt.) reported, from the Com
mittee on Post Office and Post Roads, the
House bill to establish an ocean steamship
- service between Brazil and the United States,
with an amendment.
Mr. Wilkinson. (Minn.) desired to, further
amend the bill, , and not having his amend
nent prepared asked that the subject be laid
over, which was agreed to.
Mr. Wade, (Ohio,) from the territorial cora
raittee, reported a bill to amend the enabling
act for the people of Nevada. It changes the
time of election to the second Tuesday. The
bill was passed.
Mr. Howe addressed the Senate -at some
length in support of the bill to pay Wiscon
sin 5 per cent. of the grant of land made to
her in 1838.
HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.
The House went into committee of the
whole on the state of the Union on the special
order, namely, a bill to reimburse Pennsylva
nia for the expenses incurred by that State in
calling out the militia to repel the rebel inva
Mr. Cox offered au additional section ap
propriating fifteen millions to defray-the ex
penses of calling out volunteers, militia and
recruits in Pennsylvania, ltiaryhtnd. - and other
loyal States, to repel the rebel invaders.
Mr. Carfield (Ohio) said this subject is
before the Committee on Military Affairs, who
had requested the department to give them all
the facts. The committee, were daily expect
ing a full report on various classes of claims ;
it was necessary to have the facts before the
House could . take intelligent action. He
hoped, therefore, that the amendment of his
colleague would not prevail.
Mr. Smith .(Ky.) asked why the money
should not be appropriated now. There was
not in the War Department or elsewhere in
Washington any evidence of the number of
days for which various classes of men had
been :Sailed out. These were to be determined
as-the cases arise.
Mr. Garfield replied that the Secretary of
War says there is a large mass of papers from
all these States which he is now collecting,
embracing all parties.
It is the intention of the- military commit
tee to introduce a bill providing for a com
mission to sit during the recess, to whom the
papers will be referred and a report made at
the next session of Congress. Then Congress
will !know the sums due, and appropriate
money accordingly. -
Mr. Odell, (N. Y.,) in response to - Mr.
Smith, said a commission was appointed as
to the claims of Missouri, and when the re ,
port was made and the claims properly audit
ed, Congress made an appropriation to cover
the amounts. The Committee on Military
Affairs proposed to pursue 'a similar course to
ward the other States.
Mr. Sing (Mo.) made a few remarks to show
that the gentleman was .misiaken. Mr. Odell
referred to the facts to show that 8800,000 7 -
the result of the commission, will be paid to
the Missouri Home Guard. •
Mr. Blair (Mo.) said the Home Guard of
Missouri are now being paid, he saw no dif
ference between Pennsylvania and the posi
tion that Missouri occupied before this body
last December. The claims of the Pennsyl
vania militia were as jest as those of the Mis
'souri Home Guards.
