The radical defeat in New Hampshire,
published in last week's IvEroKTXK, has
badly stunned Grant, and when el I Simon

he got mad and slammed the door, a,

as they pleased.

The radical party is fast going to

The radical party, which fattened up
n the ill-gotten spoils of the war, is
f ist crumbling to pieces, and Grant

A Washington correspondent of
Kith inst., chronicles a further un
pleasantness, as follows:
Washington, March 16. —The irre
pressible conflict in the Republican
lrty, inaugurated in the Senate last
wect in the sacrifice of Senator Sum
ner, was developed in the House to
day in one of the most extraordinary ,
and remarkable scenes ever enacted in
the hall of Representatives, which il
lustrated even more forcibly than did
-tT-^apitation of Mr. Sumner the
di-intcgration ami demoralizrtion go
ing on in the Radical ranks. The
Iwdt of General Butler from the action
of his party friends yesterday, as set
forth at length in his letter addressed !
to the Republican members of Con
gress, and published in the main in to
day's World, was the cause of all this
commotion. It brought the .Speakor j
down from his chair on to the
fl'ior of the House and compelled him
to defend himself, while four other Re
publican members appointed with
Butler got up in their seats, and, after
denouncing the policy agreed on yes
terday, declined to serve oil the com
mittee and withdrew. This bolting
letter was not only published in the
leading Republican paper here, but
was printed by Butler in circular form
and laid on the desk of every Republi
can Senator aud member. It is about
the boldest step of the many bold ones
which the redoubtable memler from
Essex had undertaken, while the feel
iug of satisfaction of Butler's friends
and tho indignation of his Republican
enemies were wrought to the highest
pitch. It was no wonder, then, that
tor nearly two hours the Republican
side indulged in crimination and re
crimination, in charges of corruption
and trickery, of falsehood and sland.r
acd invective and denunciation almost
unparalleled in the bitter contests of
political opponents. The Democratic
side flocked into the aisles aud enjoyed
the fight with as keen a relish as if it
were another New Hampshire tri
umph ; while the crowded galleries tes
tifixl their interest by palpable ap
plause over Speaker Blaine's scathing
review of Butler, no less than at the
furious points made by the latter on
the Speaker. But the misrepresenta
tion and falsehood which the leading
Republicans fastened on Butler's let
ter were almost the marvel of every
one ; and even Butler himself, driven
to the wall by counter-exposures, ad
mitted that the occasion and the scene
that filled it were disgraceful to the
sarty,5 arty, the House, and the country,
udge Kelley first led off in a denial
of Butler's first point, that the high
land'men and the Democrats struck
bamls to authorize tiie committee on
yesterday. Butler said he certainly
understood yesterday that the high
tariff men were anxious to adjourn,
aud that they wanted to prevent all
the other legislation. Peters then in
quired of Butler whether a majority
of the Republicans present had not
voted for th-; resolution as it passed ?
Butler replied that it was sprung upon
, the House rushed through by A trick
, by Republicans, "w ho, to H certain ex
tmt, voted under coercion, nnd had
struck hands with the Democrats. It
was carried in defiance of the organi
zation of the Republican party as pto
claimed in the Republican caucus."
The coercion intimated was ltlaine's
i intluencc over members through com
mittees yet to bo ap|n>inted. Mr.
Dawes wanted Butler to explain what
he ment by trick, for an examina
i tion of vote showed that tiftv eight of
the Republicans voted fur the resolu
tion. while only fifty voted against it;
and vi t the majority of the Republi
can members were accused of engag
ing in a trick. Thus was Butler's nee
ond charge demolished, and it nettled
him to sec that Dawes had done it;
but he clung to his assertion that the
committee had been authorise*! by a
trick, and reminded the Republicans
tlmt they bad agreed to stand by bi>
Ku-Klux bill in caucus. IVters, oj
Maine, said that be had offered the
committee at the Speaker's request,
and added that there was no such cau
cus action, and if there was it should
not bind him in legislative matters.
At this point Speaker Blane tackled
Butler in magificent style. He called
Mr. Wheeler, of New York, to the
chair, and took the tloor. His first
act was also to cuu\ ict Butler of false
hood. After a preliminary skirmish
ho said: "I desiro to inquire if the
gentleman was not informed that the
Speaker had written that resolution."
Mr. Butler said he was not so iuform
ed. "Well," said the Speaker, "I
took the resolution to you in my own
handwriting, and you not only read it
but you suggested an amendment, that
the expenses of the committee should
be paid out of the contingent fund of
the House."
There was a murmur all over the House
at this hut bra Ken Butler never flinched.
The Speaker proceeded in a vigorous strain
utid with tuuch feeling to further expose
the latter. Butler sat uneasily in his seat,
inflated his cheeks a* he always does a hen
he is utad, threw his eyes aslant the cell
ing, then over on the Democratic side, and
then at the Speaker. Mr. Blaine, alluding
to Butler's statement that some ltepubll
can members had been eoereed into vot
ing for the resolution, a anted all Republi
cans whomsoever, "so coerced, to stand
up now and so state the fact or to forever
hereafter hold their peace. If any oue
had not voted as a free act the country
should know it. lie piuscd, but no mem
her arose. He ilien read from Butler's
| letter, in relation to coercion, and said this
statement wa- made in the face of the fact
that fifty-eight Republicans had voted for
the resolution, while forty-nine besides
Butler had voted against it. He now d.e
--• tnanded that Butler should say what mem
ber was coerced. Butler replied that to do
so would be to detail private conversation.
,11# declared that it was understood in the
j caucus that the bill should be introduced
, to suppress disorders in the South, and the
action of the House yesterday wa> a viola
j tion of caucus action. Mr. Blaine appeal
ed to the president of the caucus to say
whether it was not understood that no
member would be bound by the caucus
action. It had never been the practice for
| caucuses to bind men upon measures, but
j only on nominations made for office. He
did not doubt if Butler could have obtained
any followeres he would have bolted the
■ caucus which has! nominated himself (Mr.
Blaine) for Speaker. As the latter pro
ceeded he grew more and more wrathful,
j and took in the spirit of the exciting scene.
The Republicans and Democrats gave hint
| every encouragement. He said he would
<ay nothing about his writing that resolu
tion, for he dispised and spit upon the as
i sertion of any man who questioned his
right in that particular as n
i -'Even the insolence of the member hirn
seif,-' said the S|>eaker, "will not carry
him to that extent." Because he had
written this resolution he had been accused
of playing a trick. Butler jumped up from
his seat and snarled out, "I repeat it, it
was a trick." Blaine intimated in reply
that Butler was in the habit of relating
most everything but the truth. "And
now," said the Speaker, "this letter which
has been printed here, telegraphed all ,
over the country, and laid in printed slips
on the desks of members, I* of the meanest, ,
most contemptible, most unfair attacks '
that was ever made." A burst of applauso j
finished the period. Butler was quick on |
his feet. He fired away at tho Speaker, 1
and said it was his duty to kep the chair j
whero ho "occupied a wooden seat and
spoke through a wooden head." Mr.
Blane reminded Butler that Mr. Colfax
once found it necessary to leave the Speak- }
er'i seat to chastise him. Butler said he !
had the floor, and he wanted to be heard. !
He was, perhaps, ignorant of parliamcn- !
tury law, but he did not want to have any !
more knowledge of it if it would have the j
effect upon the rnind that had been devel j
oped in tho speech of the Speaker this j
morning. Tho way he snarled this out
created roars of laughter. He felt pro
foundly his (tosition as lacking in parlia
mentary knowledge, "but 'for ways that
are dark and for tricks that are vain'
there's none liko Speaker , 'the same
1 now rise to maintain.'" The blank, said
he, might be filled by a gentleman at will,
{n continuing his remarks, he charged that
the Sf>eaker had entered into collusion
with the Democrats t" force this measure
through. He had not expected to bring
this disgraceful controversy into the
House, but he resorted to the press,
and expect that the gentleman would have
taken tho samo means. He had no doubt
he would survive all that Blaine had said
about him long after the latter ceased to
occupy the presidential chair; and wound
up by charging that if Blaine had shown
half the zeal in legislation for protecting
the loyal people of the South that he had
in forcing through land grant and other
iot> there would have been no necessity
for action now. "Na.ne one, sir," said
Blaine. "I name most all of them," said
Butler. "And I pronounce it a base cal
umny," siid the Speaker; it is utterly
false." Butler contented himself by reit
erating the charges of his letter and sat
down. The rest of the session was occu
pied by Sheilabarger, C'oburn, Stevenson,
and others giving reasons for refusing to
act with tho committee. While all this
was going on there was at the other end
of tho Capitol a Senatorial Radical caucus
in session in the Senate oltamber deciding
just the reverse of the course of the House
—that there must be legislation to suppress
the Ku-Klux, and, as a consequence, the
ses-ion must be protracted. So the party
is in the process of a triangular dissolution
Tho Republicans of the House are tor one
policy, the Butler Republicans are for
another, whi e the Senate Radicals decide
that the session must go on and all legisla
tion excluded till a law U passed to sup
press tho disorder in the South. The ball
is opened. First the Ku-Klux, and then
conies Santo Domingo.

Wcndel Phillips on the Grant—

The great Bostonian —the brains of
the radical party —who has ever been
about a year or two in advance of his
party in bis ideas, gives his mind up
on the Senate and San Domingo. Wc
furnish lielow his sentiments, as print
ed in last week's National Standard :
[Wendell Philip * in tatt tceek's Xational
A blow sometimes stuns a drunkard
into sobriety. Possibly the insult off-
cred and the peril brought to the lie
publican party by the removal of Mr.
Sumner may have this effect on the
nation. We mav sec the loyal u.en

the Union. If not, then there i# but
one thing more for Congress to do in
order to sign the death-warrant of the
Republican parly, and possibly of the,
Union. Ixt Congreaa now adjourn

a Democrat to the Presidency. In

such that we consider the matter about

for 1872. Whether Grant will con
sent to run on a IVnnncretic ticket i
of worse uncertain. Probably he
doe* not himself know yet. Hut evi
deutly llutler'a bill on the Ku-Klux
is not likely to become a law. The
same subserviency that ate dirt in the
Sumner matter stands ready to defeat
that. Any substitute that sends
Southern assassins to be tried by a jury
of fellow-assassins is a mockery.
Nothing short of shooting hall a dux
en Southern millionaires at the drum*
head will awe the KuKlux into sub
mission. There seems no likelihood
of such vigor either in Congress or at
the White House. The Santo Do
miugo collar on Senatorial necks
shows that they belong to a man who
has entered on the course where An
drew Johnson perished. How far lie
intend* to advance on that pathw ay he
does not himself now know. Hut the
descent is fatally easy. Wo did not
expect much from General Grant.
Rut when he so unexpectedly arose to
the level of statesmanship in the mat
ter of the fifteenth amendment and ol
the Indians, we smothered all our
doubts and gave him large confi
dence. The last few months, capped
by this insolent interference with Con
gress, reveals the man. We persisted
iu believing that Mr. Motley was re
moved for adequate cause until Mr.
Secretary Fish's clumsy letter dispell
ed the illusion. That act. seen iu the
light of this attack on Mr. Sumner,
was evidently dictated simply and
solely by spite toward the great Massa
chusetts Senator. James the First
saiil, when he came to London to
mount his throne aud found only
blundering officials, "thev have given
me a secretary who cannot write, aud
a s|<eaker who cannot speak." Grant
is understood to he in the same afflic
tion. And the Massachusetts rene
gade who helped Mr. Fish to his boy
ish rhetoric did his work so poorly
that he betrayed the secret, and let
the world sec that, after six months'
incubation, the department could not
hatch a decent excuse. Just as that
discreditable act was floating away
into oblivion comes this usurpation,
which puts the present Executive into
the company of Jackson's bank intri
gues aud Johnson's attack ou Stanton.
The revelation it make* of the servilli
ty of the Seuate is disheartening to all
lovers of free government. Every
man knows that each Senator who vo
ted for Mr. Sumner's removal did so
solely because the President had let
him understand that only on that con
dition could he hope to have any in
fluence at the departments in securing
office for his frieuds. We tell only
what is an open secret at Washington.
Politicians there, attitudinizing on the
floors of Congress, use words in a
Pickwickian sense and varnish base
acts with comely phrases. Rut it is
fit the people should know the plain
truth. The President has bought off
his opponents by refusing all winter to
listcu, in the matter of appointments,
to the recommendation of any member
of Congress who voted with Mr. Sum
ner. The oulv excuse individual Con
gressmen make for changing their
votes is that to be iguored at the depart
ments, when asking offices for their
supporters, is death to their political
tio|>es. If Santo Domingo is annexed,
Grant secures it by threats aud bribes.
The poorest memory will need but lit
tle effort to recall the very embassy
that bought a Keystone vote, the
judgeship which won a Wolverine,
and the herring post that made anoth
er Senator put on the Domingo collar.
Of course, when a party becomes
merely a "ring" to divide the spoils
it touches its downfuli. It it tad to
think that the power of a great party
thould hare fallen into the hamlt of
x tich low, mercenary teljithnett. It is
sail that we can oppose to outlaw as
sassins at the South, hamlet! together,
mercilessly and at every sacrifice, for
at least a great object—secession—
that we can oppose to them only a
gang of Swiss, shamelessly exhibiting
themselves for sale to the highest
bidder. And so cheated of hull'our
gains, Itetrayed in the house of our
friends, we inuet rally for another such
fight as that which crushed Davis and
balked Johnson. To prevent the choice
of a Democratic l\esident may be im
possible. But our effort must go deep
er than that. We must begin to edu
cate the people Into the determination,
that if, encouraged by a rebel Presi
dent, secession ever lifts its head again
at the South, the North will sweep re
beldom with the besom of uttsr do
structlon and leave it no ruler but the
sword until every now living white
man is in his grave.
The Real Reason
The partisans of Grant and Sumner,
are scolding and jatcing —no other'
word so well expresses the situation—
each other about tho cause of the re
moval of the latter, all of which must
be edifying to the British members of
the Joint High in Washington.;
Grant would have the public believe'
that he promoted tbe humiliation of
the senator from Massachusetts because
the latter is generally out of sj mpathy
with the administration, aud used his
position as chairman to forearm him
self to destroy administration projects
in foreign affairs. It is important to
bear iu mind that no one pretends
Sunnier was injurious to the adminui
t ration in any other respect than iu
transactions with foreign powers. Noj
questian of internal politics, therefore,;
enters into the discussion, and the on
ly important transactions with otbirl
nations now before the Senate, or like
ly to come before it far some time, are
Santo Domingo, the Alabama claims,
and the fisheries. But over-passing
this for the moment, let us revert to
the record to see why Sumner was re
moved —and here we think the facts
will be found ugly things for the
Grant partisans. Mr. ScTiurz, while
advocating last Friday his motion to
postpone the subject till next day, in
spired the following colloquy :
It was but just to tlint member, to tho
Senate, and to the whole country, that the
real reason for which such a change WHS
proposed should he laid bare to to the pub
lic gaze. He would therefore ask the Sena
tor who had introduced the resolution
(Howe) what were the reasons why such a
change was made.
Mr. Howe, of Wisconsin, rose to reply.
Mr. Htewart, of Nevnda (aside) —I would
not answer him.
Several Senators—No don't.
Mr. Howe said on the one hand he was
asked a question, and on the other appealed
to not to answer }t, and in deference to thai
rule of courtesy which hu had sought to
make tbe rule of his life, he would make a
I- civil answer to a civil question He would
r ] briefly state the reasons, so far as he knew
' them, and he certainly anew them as well
4 ' as any Senator. No question had been
11 raised as to the ability of the Senator from
t |- Massachusetts, and 110 pretension bad been
made that he was surpassed in any respect
' hy the gentleman p oposod to succeed him.
II but it was known to those who proposed
v the change that the personal relations exist,
ing between the Senator from Mas-acho
* sells and the President ofthe United Stales
n and the bead of the Slate Department were
such a* to preclude all social into course
between them. In brief the informal ion
'• was that the Senator from Massachusetts
•f reftitad to hold personal intercourse with
|.; the Secretary of State
Mr. Sumner, of Massachusetts Just tlie
*' contrary.
. Mr llowe, ot Wisconsin, continuing
j without noticing tlie remark And that (lie
Senator lias not held any intercourse with
* the President of the United States In
n view of thee fads it was deemed be-t that
if the Committee of Foreign Relation* should
have a head w ho would be on the best speak
-1 ing terms with the Secretary of State and
the President
r Mr Si-hum, of Missouri, replied that he
was very creditably informed, andthst from
the be,-! authority, that the Senator from
I MnssachllsetU, kitting behind them (Sum
c neri, ha.l not refused in enter into any of
tlcial relations either with the President or
( the Secretary* of State
I Mr llowe, of Wisconsin laskniy friend
not to change the i*ue 1 did not speak of
. their official relation* 1 spoke of their
personal relation*.
Here is mi explicit statement that
tin* social ami personal, not official, rc
lutions existing hetwtou Mr. Hutnucr
I on tlx* one luiioi mid Messrs. Grant
( ami Fish on tlie other ham) enforced
the action of the Republican caucus.
Who, then, inspired the caucus ? Who
complained to the caucus of ruptured
personal relations? However that
may he, the public lias from Senator
Howe a reason.
A few minutes later in the debate
; Senator Howe "denied the correctness
"of Mr. Schurx's assertion that the
"Santo Domingo scheme was at the
"bottom of the whole matter, and
| "maintained that the Senate's action
j "had no significance further than he
j"hail state*!."
This last assertion of Howe brought
; Wilson to his feet, whodeclarcd : " I he
'true reason for this action had not
"yet been given. The Senator from
'Wisconsin denied that the Santo I ><
l"niinco matter has anything to do with
"it. but everybody knew the fact,
"and it was useless to deny it, that
"this effort has grow n out of the Santo
"Domingo matter. We all know that
"if this Santo Domingo annexation

artless son of the backwoods, awav

the administration. He then added that
he had taken down in yesterday * proceed
ing* in the Republican caucus the words
which fell from the tips ofthe Senator from
Wisconsin (Mr, Howe) as to the reason tor I
this change The words were "that thr
majority of the -Senate were in favor of the
; annexation ot Santo Domingo, and a ma
jority of the Committee on Foreign Kela
jtiont were opposed to iL and that was the
rt*aon for making the change. '
Mr. Sherman, of Ohio, n-krd if Mr. Tip
-1 tun did not fee) -ome compunctions ..f
; conscience in divulging the secrets of a par
| ty caucus.
Mr. Tipton said he might have, had he
not seen the w hole proceeding* of the cau
■i cu* in the morning papers, with the yea*
and nays, and his friend's (Sherman s)
i name among them.
M r. Sherman remarked perhaps Ins friend
Tipton had rovealod the proceeding-
Mr. Tipton replied that the Sennlor did j
not a-k that question in good faith ; that
tho Senator had too much repc< 1 r- r
Mr. Tipton *) integrity arid hnor to inli
rnato that he woiild d<> nothing of that
Mr. Howe, of Wisconsin, then repented
what he did say in the caucus. It was
1 substantially that there was one parliamcn- .
tarv reason why, inhisjuilgcmrnt, the right
to alter the Committee on Foreign lt*Uli<>m
should be excrei-ed, and that was that he
I understood a majority of the Senate to tie
in favor of the annexation ofSanlo D*min
go, and a majority uf the couimitlec to be
opposed to it. It wa* ill accordance with
parliamentary u-age to rccon-litute the
committee. But this was not itself the
rea-on lor removing the head of the com
mittee, because the adverse majority might
very wed be corrected by removing any
other member of the committee, and if
that had been the only difficulty with the
(Committeeon Foreign Relations it might
!u waived hereafter as it been heretofore.
Mr. Tipton, of Nebraska, did not see that
there wm any material difference in thi
statement from what he had said. He did
not ncknow bilge that a majority of the Sen
ate was in favor of Santo Domingo annexa
tion. The vote stood i! 8 to a- slated
in the newspapers, and this he knew to be
true. (Laughter.)
The attempted rebuke of Sherman is
evidence that Tipton had blabbed, and
blabbed truthfully. Hone wan com
pelled to own up. He tried to get in
a line distinction to save the integrity
of his first statement, but Tipton was
too close OR his trial and instantly took
his scalp. Wilson too was, for once
in his life, light. Howe's answer to
Scburz may have been civil, but was it
honest ?—World

MOUNTCARMEL, l'.t., MAR. 11th,71.
Friend Fred.— I embrace this my
first opportunity of penning you a few
lines from the anthracite coal fields of
You are no douht aware that the
greater nortiou of the collieries in the '
anthrucite region arc on a stand still,
and have been for the last two months.
On the 10th day of January the
Grand Council ofthe \V. 11. A. called '
a susj ension throughout the whole
anthracite region, for the purpose of
reducing the stock of coal in our mar
kets, and also for the purpose of ad
vancing prices, which would follow au
advance of wages for the miners and
others working in and about the
mines. On the 15th day of February
the Grand Council ordered the men to
resume operations mi what is termed
tho three dollar luuis, but they did
not resume, the o|H*rators and carrying
companies were not yet ready.
The fight now is shall the operators
run their own collieries and employ and
discharge who they see fit or shall the

A terrible outrage was committed
in our quiet borough, which made the
whole community tremble. On last
iKaturday morning, about two o'clock,
ia block of houses, owned by Col John -
Hough, was attacked hy a nam! of out
laws. The men living in these houses 1
were employed hy F. Roads & Co., '
who are running their colliery on the
co operative system, but designated by 1
the \V. 11. A. its a black-leg colliery.
The moh, supposed to number 4(f men,
I attacked the buildings on the north
and west sides, and during the fireing
(some of them broke out a panel of the 1
(door on Ihe east side of llie building,
and put a kegofj owder in the house, '
with a fuse ignitid it and then ran ex- '
peeling the powder to do its work. The J
explosion wasti rrible, completely blow
ing out the enu and purl ofthe aide ul 1

' t four hoarders, Mho were slacking in

> the first tloor: one of the men, Gorgt

through the heail by a mueket hall
i while Iviujf asleep in bed. He lived
aln nit three quarter* of au hour *Uer
, sards, he leavre a wife and two small
' children, hie remain* were taken to
I'in* (irotre, accompanied by the bc
, reaved wiie, children and father,
i The building at the time contained
thirty men, women and children, all of
whom, except llotTmaii, escaped. The
I object of the mob evidently was to
murder the whole of them, there were
| about one hundred shots tired in the
building, some of which were tired into
the bod rooms, slid several of the balls
entered the led* in which some of the
inmates were sleeping. The building
was occupied by three families, one of j
which kept hoarders
The evident cause which led to the
perpetration of this outrage, is, thati
all of the nialo occupants (with one
exception were working for F. Koads
A" Co , at the so called black leg Col
liery. It is high time that some aciiou
lie taken for the better protection of
life and property in this region "what
