! About 1 , Mr. Grow crossed over to tbe
Democratic side of the Chamber, to confer
wi'b Hickman, Douglas Democrat, of
j 1 ennsylvania. Having liuished his con-
i fereucc, Grow was passing down the side
. aisle of the area, on his way back to bis
i seat. Just then, Gen. Quitman asked
unanimous consent to submit a motion out
of order. Grow, according te thc usual
custom, objected, saying, "I object, Mr.
Speaker; let us go on the regular order."

Keitt just behiud tho left ear. Kcitt fell
as suddenly as if struck with an axe. As
he was going down, Grow gave him an
emphatic shove between tho cLcuIJers,
which caused him to striko head foremost,
with his heels upwards, presenting to the
galleries tbc appearance of a man trying
to plungo through tho floor of tho House
into the vaults beneath.
A hundred accounts of this affair have
gone out. The above I give on the very
b6' authority. The slaveholding version
of Kcitt's fall is, that he tripped and fell.
lie was knocked down by Grow.
And now the melee became general.
As Keitt fell, Grow was seized by half-a-dozen
Southerners, among whom was
Barksdalo of Mississippi. They assert
that their sole object waB to stop tbe fight.
Some believe them. But, in tbe twink
ling of an eye, from forty to fifty Repub
licans came dashing across the hall to the
scene of tbo encounter, headed by John F.
Potter, of Wisconsin, who leapt into thc
midst of the fight, by the side of Grow,
with the bound of a tiger, commenced hit
ting right and left among the patriarchs

himself, which he promptly repaid on the

prove, that on due provocation, ho would,
like bim of old, try bis band at hewing
Agag in pieces betor tbe Lord.
As evidence of thc spirit which pervaded
the freemen in the hall, I will relate a
! scene which is said to have occurred be-
tween Montgomery of Pennsylvania, and
Iiocock of Virginia. Their seats adjoin,
and are near thc spot of tbe encounter.
Montgomery is a Douglas Democrat, an
able lawyer, and a quiet, gentlemanly per
son, liocock is a good-hearted fellow,
but he feels the blocd of tho Virginia F.
F.'s coursing his voins. Barksdalo seized
Grow. Montgomery started towards the
aisle. ISoeock seized bim by the arm.

Some hands were laid on knives and pis
tols, liut, none were drawn. Ono He
publican mcmber,with a Colt in bis pock
et, anticipating a bloody issue, mounted a
chair, so that ho could see to do good ser-
vice without hitting his friends.
To detail all this takes some time;
and yet, tbe wole affair occupied only
three or four minutes. After it was over,
a feeling that a great danger had been
shunned, and barely shunned, gave a soni'
bro hue to thoughtful faces. When all
had passed, the Speaker, who had borne
himself firmly through the wild scene, was
pale aud nervous.
Thc lips of thc many Anti Lecompton
itcs were compressed, and the responsive
Yea or Kay, during the rcmaiuing hours
of thc night, was hissed through some
teeth rather than uttered from tbe mouth.
If tho mortal struggle, which at ono mo
ment was anticipated, had oamuiccccd,and
blood I1 been shed, the Anti-Lccompton-itcs
would have madoa clean sweep of tbe
Hall. AH concerned may know that these
gentlemen arc in no frame of mind to sub
mit quietly to insult.
Thc South is cowed. I know what I
say cowkd. Thc promptness with
which Grow knocked Kcitt down in tho
very midst of tbo Southern side of thc
Chamber, and tho alacrity aud fire with
which some fifty Republicans bounded
across thc Hall to join the struggle, ap
palled tho Slaveholders. Father G id
dings said to-day, "I have sat in this
IIouso twenty years, and I never saw tbe
Slave Power so completely batlled and
cowed as during this fifteen hours contest."
"Keip Yolr Mouth Shut." Never
allow thc act of respiration to be carried
on through tbe mouth. The nasal pas
sages aro clearly tho medium through
which respiration was by our Creator de
signed to bo carried on. "God breathed
into man's nostrils thc bicath of life,"
previous to his becoming a living creature.
Tbo difference in tho exhaustion of
strength by a long walk with the mouth
firmly closed, and respiration carried on
through thc nostrils instead of through
thc mouth, is inconceivable to those who
have never tried the experiment. It is
said that the habit of carrying on the
work of inspiration and expiration through
tho mouth, is the origin of almost all
diseases of the throat and lungs.

membered, was very actively opposed by
a few of that class of clergymen who op
posed Sabbath Schools and everything else
that might finally infringe upon their au
thority. He exerted all his strength to
defeat tbe adoption of tbe school system in
his district, but the public sentiment ap
peared to be against bim. He determi
ned on a last resort. He called the peo
ple together, as their pastor ; he told them
of thc undying interest be felt in the wel
fare of their souls ; how Satan was contin-
ually laying plans for their destruction ;
and, in what danger they now were from
the adoption of tho system of common
schools. "My people," said he, "if you
adopt this system of education, the souls
of your children will inevitably bo lost.
The original language of tho world was
our language. It is the language of our
Maker, and ho understands no other. If
your children go to theso schools, they
will learu the English, and forget their j
Dutch, and then, my friends, tho awful :
condition will exist of their being unable i
to pray to their God in a language which j
he can understand, aud consequently tho I
loss of their souls will be certain." Tho
argument or the facts on which they were
based, were not considered satisfactory by
his "people," and they accepted the school
law. The argument referred to iu the
beginning of theise remarks will bo about

said, received three shots in bis body. A
moment afterwards, a student was badly
beaten by the firemen. Two or three stu
dents and as many firemen then engaged
in a fight. Much excitement has been
created, and a general row between the
firemen and students is threatened.

Too moh of our Clover seed is very
carelessly sown and when the Suit is in a
poor condition to ensure its germination
anl growth. Now, if by a little mora
labor anl care in doing this work we can
.-.".lira one or two additional tons of clover
tj the acre and we can dj thii then
surely this extra iucrcae of this valuable
cuttle feeding and manorial crr.p, will pay
us well fir all our allitional trouble and
care, ltut how arc we to secure this ?
; that is the (jucstiou. I answer.
! The most successful method of growing
' clover yet known seems to be to pre
, pure the seed by soaking the seed over

water and to roll it the next morning in
