Here is a very readable English translation
of a work which in French luta already attained
inch celebrity as must have greatly delighted
the publisher s—for we read in the newspapers
that 'between the praises of Its friends and the
censures of its enemies—ttust between the
strange, but of come unintentional end purely
fortuitous, co-operation in its behalf of ap
preciation and depreciation—of salvos ,of
welcome from the free-thinkers and thunders
of denunciation from the orthodox—of plau
dits from the lyceum and anathemas from the
chuieh--thia superficial but brilliantly written
volume of rationalistic theology, biography,
exegesis, historical criticism, or what aloe. (for
it is a little of everything and not much of
anything, except yerhaps surprising examples
of cool assumption and flippant assertion,)
has reached the amazing mean, commer
cially speaking, of a gale of 35,000 copies I
As M. Ream presents his opinions in an agree
able, indeel an engaging style, speaking of
his work from a purely literary point of view,
and as he is an accredited oclialar in the ori
ental languages, which saves him from the
folly of denying the authenticity of the sacred
writings, like the skeptics of the; last genera
tion, and the more illiterate of those of our
time, it may be an interesting and even pro
iltable study for the stadtnt who has not yet.
examined that phase of modern rationalism,
which probably reached its fullest and most
adequate expression in Stranas's celebrated
Leber' Jens, published in 1835, to open this vo
lume, which has all the attractiveness of style
and clearness of exposition that are almost
characteristics of French, as distinguished
from Garman, scholarship, and ace what this
now method of historical and critical inquiry
really is, how it is applied, and winder° its
results. After such examination, he will be
more than ever before, we think, ready to ex
claim with Dr. Young:

We noticed, some time ago, the "French

casion in doing so to commend. the'care and
die criminationotith which Pref.lCiapp had per
task lie had undertaken. We are
happy to say that the present work on French
Grammar deeervoe equal commendation at
our hands. For a thorough eleatentary course
in the French language, as wall as for the
more advanced course, which contemplates
not only translating from books, but the ful
ler mastery and readiness required for the
purposes, of writing and conversation, we
now not that any better text-book can be
found than Professor Knapp has here sup
plied—speaking 'from the !repression it has
made on us during a somewhat pains-taking
examination of Its arrangement and peculiar
features. We consider it to be well adapted
to meet all the reasonable requirements of the
student who would attain a thorougti and

—that is, as for as any grammar, or any book,
can meet them.

• Our novel-reading friends are so well ac
quainted with the previous works, in their line
of literature, which have proceeded from Mr.

saying ' Hero is another,' may seem imperil a

Siusial Dispatch to the Pittsburg? Gazette.
WASIitACTOII, Dec, 7.--The happy and
speedy organization of the House to-day, is
loathe timidity of Emerson'Etheridge, rather
than to any leek of dishonest efforts. He
neat just far enough to demonstrate his caps-.
city for high-handed outrages, but got fright
ened and stopped short before going far
enough to mlize any benefit from it. The
Administration men all suPPoseti if he wen(
to the length of excluding . from his list the
names of Maryland and other delegations,be
would twist nit maintaininkthis list as a roll
of the house until an organization had been
effected. It was determined, however, to be
gin by trying to amend the roll by adding
the names he had loft off, and to the manifest
disgust of the Dynamite. _lns 'kneel attollee
became weak sale suceolned. Tbatprinti
mbility ended the matter. all that' remained
was to move successively to read the cer
tificates of each delegation he jhad
left off . and to order their cameo put
on the cell. lie had omitted tbo names of all
the members from Maryland, Virginit4West
Virginia, gnaws and. Oregon, and tilt from
Missouri h eave two copperheads, and had put
on the. names of three - bins membeli from
Louisiana. The. Adminietration soon first
called for the reading Of ilartificates of mem
bers from Maryland. On reading, thcyproved
to be from the Governor; to be duly certified
by seal and signature, ta recite the law of
Maryland under which they Were 011544, end
to specify with partionlareare titay.hey. Were
elected in accordance with this law. 'Nothing
could of course be plainer than this,.and a
motion wan Instantly mige 144 ring-them to
put the names onj. trot in calling the yeas and
nays he could only be required to call from
the roil ho had already made, hand it was
feared the remaining AdrainietratiOn men on
it would not be sufficient to have it majority,
To the dismay, however, of the conspirators,
(mites masher of Democra ts, disgusted with
bare faced fraud, voted for the resolution re
quiring Etheridge to put the names on,
while othere refused to eats against it, eo it
was carried by twenty-odd majority, and the
five Maryland men, four of 'limn Administra
tion roes, were put on the roll. After that, ell
was easy, and other excluded members, their
certificates having been read and found equal
ly good] were successively voted on. Ethe
fitird the rooment'of tbg fret vote, hav
ing became exceedingly olisequiour, and
manifestlY cowed. On proceeding to the
election of Speaker further demoralization of
Democratic discipline was discovered.
It appeared that no mucus nomination on
their ride had hoestmade for Speaker, Poodle- !
ton having withdrawn, and the CAUCt.IS having
refused to nominate Cox. Their vote was
ecatterred on Cox, Dawson„Mallory, Stebbins,
King, Prank Blair and Stiles. The Adminis
tration men from the Northern States voted
"square through fur Colfax, Brutus Clay,
'Lucien Anderson, Clay Smith, and William
D. Randall, of Kenteeky ; Winter Davis,
Webster, and Creswell. of Mary land ; Blow,
Boyd, McClurg, and Loon, of NIMPOUTI
Smithere, of Delaware,,and all the West Vit.-
girds members formed the border State column
who voted for Colfax. lie had nine votes
mar:than a majority ever all•competiters and
had a majority of fifty-nine over little Mr.
Samuel Cox. Reso d * have bad three votes
more, but fur (he oillitnelair':cd , the Virginia'
membere, and `would. have had three less
agalasthim had the bogus Louisiana mem
bers been plaited ouihnfays....instead of after
the election. This would have brought his ,
majority up'to fifteen. That is about the prac
tical working Admlnistrationtnejority.
In the House; to-day, the announcement of
Mr. Colfax's election was received with pro
longed applause from the galleries, in which
the members on the floor heartily joined.
Mr. Colfax's speech receives univarsal praise.
The prevalent remark about it Is, that he
said jut enough, said it in the best possible
way, and stopped when be got done.
Mr. Brooks, of N. T., manifested a disposi
tion to lead off on the Democratic side, but
got handsomely 'nabbed. He tried to filli
buster, and his party refused to fillibuster
with him.
Mr. Frank Blair had the honor of being
put in nomination, and voted for Speaker by
the bogus Louisiana members.
The galleries were densely packed during
the proceedings, and the floor was covered by
• crowd of distinguished strangers, conspicu
ous among whom wore Henry Wadsworth,
Longfellow, Horace arealy, Ben. Heintzelman,
the members of the Senate and a hest of the
members of the Lest House.
The bogus Governor of Louisiana, who
signed the bogs* members' certificates with hie
private seal, was Postmaster in Now Orleans
under the rebel government, when Butler
entered that city. Oneef the bogus members
was inside the rebel lines at the time of the
pretended election, and was sent through by
them that be might &me on and take his
seat. Thad. Stevens ',tatted in debate that
they had applied already to the Sergeant-at-
Arme for their pay and mileage.

test narrowed down to three candidates—Mc-

balloting', and Green Adams gradually ran
down, till at last Adams disappeared, and on
the sixth ballot the vote stood : McPherson,
