We have had another glorious week. 4W
all the festive legislatures this is one of the
festivest I have ever koown. It bus festived
Pittsburg. Ni w York. Philadelphia, and
other places by committees; has festived
Harrisburg generally, and finally gave Wash
ington its festivest festivity. The whole
Legialuture resolved to go to Washington to
see that their unsophisticated new Senator
should not go into the wrong House, or by
any other awkward accident fail to get his
seat. As he knows nothing of the cilium
ry and trickery of Washington. it wasdeem
ed best that the whole Legislature, the one
hundred and one pesters and folders, the
correspondents. and the ehiers of the lobby,
should be combined in a committee of surety
for the trip, and to be transformed into an
advisory and admiration committee when
the Capital should be reached. Being of the
old school of Harrisburg correspondents, I
was of course invited, and from n y intimate
relations with and devotion to the Legish:-
titre. I could not decline. :kly ticket of in
vitation kindly inquired whether I would a
Rooster be, and with the Roosters go, and
if o. to come along. Of' course I went,
and was treated with distinguished consid
eration. particularly on the trip, and had a
jolly time generally. Although there are
but 13:1 members of' the Legislature, 107
subordinate officers, and about ten corre
spondents, there were some 347 who were
ticketed and passed along as belonging to
the Legislature, while sonic 30 of the mem
bers did nut go at all. I did not understand
this diserepency in figures, nor did I seek
an explanation, hut when we got to Wash
ington, and got up the serenade to our
Chief, I found that we had everything with
u 4, from the Legislature down to a promis
cuous crowd, and a large committee on ap
plause. ;
No incident* worthy of note happened on
the journey, excepting a few little unpleas
ant misunderstandings such as always oe
cur• in large and promi3cunua crowds. Sit
ting in meditative quietude, with my cloak
wrapped closely around me, and my hat
drawn down over my serene brow, I was
aroused from revery by a fellow passenger
mistaking me for Senator Cameron and pre
senting a petition for the post of office in s
village. I forgave hits for the blunder, as
he was iattaiistaa.

Another more serious affair (warred as
we neared Baltimore, A stout, ruddy timed,
bearded man entered the ear and took a

himself. '1'111: conduetor, w h en making his

When we got to Washitutton. it was de

and our excursionists stood around the Sen

great statesmen of the land. Our pathmee

we bole up under the delay, until at last our

unanimously resolved that we would not visit
the floor el' tha S mate, and we directed our
steps to our hotel, and made preparations
rr a serenade to our new Senator. We
•tid ...lir haled impressed our crowd to act
the spontaneous on the occasion. selected
and no tified ( ow speakers who were to b e
neevreetedly culled upon, and notified Sen
ator Cameron of the exact hour we would
siirprise him with a serenade to be ,risen in
the name of l'enesylvaniaa in Washington.
The only trouble was in limiting the speech.
There were only thirty-six who had written
nut speeches to be deliver] extemporaneous
ly on the occa4ien, and as not more than
five could be aceonitnedat ed. it took adroit
diaplimmyy is sipteleh the others out. A
committee was appointed, of which I was
chairman, to settle the difficulty, and we
ilnally got thirty-one to agreu not to be sur
prised into a spet , eli on the condition that
the offices they had been promised should
not be imperiled by their silence. Thus
matters were elegantly arranged, and the
whole thing passed off smoothly as sledding
on ire. Cameron's speech was a cross be
tween Johnson's offices and Republican
principles, and was considered a great suc
cess. Great relief was felt after the whole
thing was over. At the new Senator was
admitted without challenge and sworn in,
the last obstacle to a complete settlement of
outstanding balances was removed, and we
all returned home merry as the marriage
bell. Some of us had headache's on our re
turn, but time and soda made all things
right again.

The dog is a very useful animal. I own a
dog—black and tau terrify.. lie is a nice
dog ; used to look very ferocious and fly
around the room when anybody said "rats,"
although I never knew him to catch any.
But he was great at raw beef. In that re
spect I never saw his equal. He answered
to the name of "Jack." 1 suppose there
must be several million dogs who rejoice in
the same oi)gnomen. Jack strayed away a
week or two ago; lef the 1111111111 i of my
house for the flesh-pots a POll/0 beguiling
stranger, I suppose. Missed him when I
came home ; house seemed empty without
him. His "bark wasn't nn the sea," or in
the parlor, or in the second story front or
anywhere else. Children cried for him,
while our Thomas oat' no longer mounted
hurriedly on the chairs and tables as he ap
proached. I was distressed. I consulted
with my wife ; I advertised for him ; offered
five dollars reward. Advertisement appeared
in the morning papers.
Ring at OA door-bell about 6 A. M.
Whole family in bed. Bose and put my
head out of the window. Milli with two
s potted dogs that looked as if they had just
recovered from a a severe attack of' the men-
Nies. Follow looked up and wanted to know
"it' either one of then, was him." Don't
use profane language ; so simply said "no"
und shut the window.
Dour-bell rang eighteen times within the
next hour, Out up at last and dresxed.
Began to eat my breakfast, Another ring
at the bell. Short man with shiny hat.
Wort what my oldest girl called "spit curls,"
Had a bull dog with a bead like a east-iron
water spout and =crooked legs. Said he'd
timed my deg. Told him that, wasn't him.
Said be knew it was, rather savage. Dog
began to growl, and looked herd at we. As
sumo) a mild, pl!rsllasiVe tone, and described
my lest canine. Fellow said, anyhow be
w a s a better dog then mine, and he guessed
he would leave him. I said I wouldn't.
have him under any eireumptances. Fulluw
the dog and said s-sei ketch 'cm.
Deg made a dash at me. Springing inside,
and shut the doer in his face. Went it, the
parlor tied watched him leave through the
trout gate. Saw another man oink in.
Had a I idieulues poodle with a brass collar
around his neck. Threw up the window
and told him that w a s n 't l il y d og , so he
ticedn't bring him in. Ile eyed MO with a
sarcastic style and said, I couldn't afford to
own a dog like that. Told him I didn't
want to either. Sail that the; had killed
his nineteen rats in f=air minutes, be had.
, Said I witeldn't believe him if 110 eros%ed
his breast to it. Fellow then dared me to
came out. Said he would poke we in the
no•e. or something of that sort.
1 didn't go out.
Another ring at the boil. This lime a
I fellow in 3 fur cap, and a yellow mongrel
that had but one eve Asked me if I had
lost a doe. Said yes. Fur cap said he bad
fund him, and wanted the reward, Told
Ihint that wasn't my dog. Fur cap wanted
to know if my dog wasn't named .Jack,
Sail lte was. He then caRIPd his rliou , -
loktng V,111411 by that. name. Dog flapped
his Id/VIM:110 trill against the pavement
three or four times, and flung his undamaged
' optic around in a wild sort of style. IVaut't
eon% hived however. and the fur cap left at'-

but his hose, and mi line I:,e_rn on, or coat- .0
Coter, as f I could se=e. Hal a big
1,13.14 and tan terrier with hi m ,
' d deal Hail a way of putting
rail between his lees. My impression is
that the iidlow went out and hunted up the
to get the r.ward.
Didn't seem to take kindly to b:s ormet•
I lion. Syntax was OtTeetive, Said he had
-fetched back that dog of yourn. - Told
him that was not the ono I h a d lost. Fellow
it ,
insisted that was. Seemed rather di
I hearted because I wouldn'rtake him. Air
I if I didn't observe how glad the dumb belst
I was ua pre one. Said I hadn't observed it.
Fellow said I'd reeret it if I let sneh a chance
slip to get a valuable beast, Said I guessed
I I'd have to let her slip. Then he thor 7 lit
a while, and asked Mr it' I wouldn't lend
Ihim five dollars anyhow. and take the dog
as seemity. 'fold him I was unable to per
ceive it precisely from that stand-point. So
he went away, looking as if he felt hurt.
Then another man came with a tierce
looking hound with 'hairless tail. Hound
rushed right at me commenced exere:sing
his &factories up and down my trow-ers.—
Looked us if he might bite with the least
provocation. Man said he'd brought my
dog. Told him rather sharp that my deg
was a terrier. Said so was this one. Caught ,
ruts before his eyes were open, end had
been engaged in that blood-thirsty occupa
tion ever since, Told hini I couldn't take
him. Man said he wouldn't leave without
the five dollars. Said I would see him in
the tomb of Capulets first. Fellow thought
I was swearing at him, and struck at me.
Dog took it up right off, flew at me and torn
my trowsers, besides tasting my flush. I
escaped into the entry, shut the door and
locked itt. Determined not to answer any
more rings. Bell was pulled two hundred
and seventy-five times more, Don't answer
it. Understood afterwards that several of
I my friends had been to see me, and gone
away offended. About dinner time went up
land looked out of the window. Found see
' enty-five or eighty men there, all of whom
had dogs. Bull terriers, spaniels, setter
pups, bloodhounds. double-rioted pointers,
Newfoondlands, mastiffs, mongrels. Dogs
with strait tails, curly tails, bob tails, and no
tailsat all. Yellow, black, white, brown,
spotted and flea-bitten, I suppose that ever
went on four legs; or three either, were
gathered in my front yard. Put the sash
up, and attempted to disperse the crowd.
Crowd commenced to talk all at once. Dogs
all howled, yelped, barked, and snarled.—
Couldn't hear my own voice, and shut the
window in disgust.
Haven't seen my dog yet. Don't ever ex
pect to see him. Don't ever want to see
him or any other dog. Have seen enough
of dogs to last me the balance of my natur
al life.
Horrible stories are in circulation connect
ing dogs with restaurant sausages. Hope
my dog is tucked away in somesausageskin.
Wish all the dogs were made into one large
sausage, and the fellow that owns the dog
with the hairless tail that bit me had It to
eat at one sitting.
NIL In some places out west the grass

I was n woman, and I'd a heart,
And I raved of love and constancy,
And he saw the tears of my eyelids start,
For he was the world to me.
Ile whispered low, when the spring timeflew
Of' finagled paths in which men stray,
And uround me all his arms he threw,
Ilia eyes were on fire that day.
We parted ; yes! but I clung to him,
And put up my lips to be kissed again ;
And the laughing eyes of the,heav'it grew
And were bwollen bleak with rain. [dim,
They came to me when my lore was gone,
And said he was poor and toiled fig bread,

Kellvy, on the other hand, presented a

far extended, with his right lying on his
breast. lie came up grinning savagely, and
seemed determined to commence operations

back, Kelley following quickly, and soon
they both let go their left hands at the lime,
but both were short. Parkinson then step
ped away, but being followed closely again

made him reel, Kelley followed him up
and reeived a left-bander on the nose ;
but he in return planted his loft again on
Parkinson's mouth, drawing more blood.
Kelley also missed his left and right at
the head, while Parkinson seemed con
fused in his endeavors to get away. An
overreaching right bander of Kelley's which
passed over Parkinson's head, broughtthem
to close quarters, when Parkinson seized
Kelly by the left leg, Just above the knee,
on the inside, and held on there until the
referee was appealed to with criesof "foul."
Parkinson then slipped his hand further up
and held Kelley by tire breeches, endessek
ing to throw him. Kelley did not struggle
fur the fall, but gathering his strength plan
ted a heavy left bander in the ribs, and was
then thrown, Parkinson fhlling on him.—
Foul was claimed bj the seconds of Kelley,
and the referee promptly decided that Kelley
had won the fight. Great confusion then
ensued, the partisans of Kelley rushing in
to the ring and congratulating him on his
easy vietrry, while Parkinson's friends were
calling on the referee to have the ring clear
ed let the tight goon. Lazarus then went
over and took down the color, while the
Parkinson I'll.n were expostulating with the
refliree for a reversion of Iris decision.—
This, however, that gentleman would not

began to disperse. There is no doubt that
the foul act ut' Parkinson was premeditated.
A man with his experience in ring matters
meld never have made such a mistake ; and
the presumption is, that finding himself
overmatched he adopted this system of' bring
ing to an early close a battle that must have
terminated disastrously to him. The round
lasted two minutes, and a more dashing first
round has seldom been witnessed in the
prize ring. Parkinson is said to have lost
all the force he is said to have possessed in
his youthful tights, as ha could not punish
his antagonist. On the other hand, Kelley
is a heavy hitter with both hands ; and as he
seems to have plenty of pluck, he will be
fund a bard customer for the best of the
fe abet. weights. The old adage of "Youth
will he served" was proved to be correct on
the above occasion.
The First Impeachment.
The first impeachment ease ever tried by
the Senate of the United States was that of
It Justice of the Supreme Court. The tie
cit•ed was Judge Samuel Chase, a rmtive of
Maryland, and, in his time, one of the ?cad.
ink men of the conntry. He had been au
ardent patriot during the war of the Recce
lotion. Ile was repeatedly a member of the
Continental Congress, a signer of the Dee
Titration of Independence, and a member of
the Maryland Convention which ratified the
Federal Constitution. In 1796 Washington
appointed him to the bench of the Supreme
He was a man of great ability and very
ardent temperament. Being a very decided
and free spoken Federalist in the party con
test of the day, he was particularly offensive
to the Jeffersoniand. When Jefferson came
into power, his political friends, led by John
Randolph, of Roanoke, then rapidly rising
into the great distinction he subsequently
acquired as an orator, instituted an impeach
ment of Judge Chase. The party charac
ter of the prosecution is sufficiently shown
by the voting on the articles of impeach
meta, and the collateral questions prelimi
nary to the tr,ial. The debates did not show
this flagrantly, for the difference between
the parties grew out of Constitlitional doc
trines; and there was nothing offensively
personal and cowardly selfish among a public
men then, such as the furious disputant+ of
this day display in political warfare laces
,antly and shamelessly.
The course which the impeachment took
wad, by motion, February, 1804, for a com
mittee of inquiry, whether grounds for im
peachment existed. This was adopted by a
vote of 81 to 40, and the committee was ap
pointed, of which John Randolph was
Chairman. On the 6th day of' March the
committee reported in favor of impeaching
Judge Chase.
Richard Peters, of the United States Dis
trict Court of Pennsylvania, bad been in
cluded in the required motion of inquiry, but
the committee reported that there was so
ground for including Judge Peters.
The House immediately appointed a coup
mittee to go the her of the Senate and ac
quaint that body that the House had ordered
the impeachment of Judge Chase.
On the 13th of March a committee was
appointed to prepare the articles of impeach
went. These were reported on the 26th, ap.
proved by the Ileums, and seven managers
of impeachment appointed,
The Congress then adjourned, and the
impeachment lay over till the next session,
to be held in November of the same year,
The material charges were based on two
judicial acts of Judge Chase, while holding
Circuit Courts—one in Pennsylvania, and
one in Virginia. The two eases in which
his delinquency was asserted, were the fa
mous trials of John Pries, for treason, and
of James Thompson Csßender tbr @edit . °
These figure among the most exciting topics
of di-cession during the whole period of
the struggle between the Federalists and the
The Fries case was tried in Philadelphia.

the charge of high treason. On his first
trial his counsel pleaded that, resisting by
force a particular law of the United States,
does not amount to levying war against the
United States in the meaning of the ,Con
stitution. The Court, coinpos©d of Justioes
Iredell and Peters, ruled against them, and
Fries was convicted. A new trial was grant
ed on another ground, and on the second
trial Justice Chase sat with Judge Peters.
On this trial Judge Chase announced, in
advance, to the prisoner's counsel, that the
opinion of tire Court was made up on this
Constitutional point, and the counsel need
not argue it. The counsel retired from the
case, and Fries was convicted without de
fense. It, is this ruling that was declared to
be so "arbitrary, oppressive and unjust," as
to demand - impeachment.
The other case arose in the eireuit Court
of Virginia, under the sedition law of John

Thompson Callender was indicted flhaving

Before 1 1s." On the trial Judge Chase
overruled the eltie , t;ml of the jurors that
he had made up his mind that the publi a
don was seditious and constrained him to
serve cn the trial. It was also charged that
he had arbitrarily, and h,r notely political
purposes, ruled out important testimony
offered by the primner.
There was a special charge of indecent
partizanship in his charge to a grand jury
in Maryland.
These aro the material points on which
the argument was made.
