Wit think that the position of the Pennsylvania Republican delegation in the lower House of Congress on the nomination_ of Speaker is misap prehended by the Philadelphia Press, when it charges that the delegation as a whole • violated pledges to sup port Mr. 'Kisco& The Press is again at fault in attributing Mr. Keifer's nomination and election to Stalwart influences. We affirm of our own ' knowledge; that a number of the delegation were actuated by -entirely different motives and under different influences, and very prop erly and rightfully so. The causes that led to the defeat of Mr. His cock, grew out of the very general impression that as the State of New York now held three or four high posi tions, she was not therefore entitled to the Speakership. That Messrs . , Conkling and Platt preferred that he should not wield the Speaker's gavel we do not doubt., but it was not their influence in the case of at least eight of the delegation that carried them to Kiefer: The extent of the pledges on the part of these men to Hiscock, was only upon condition that he was able to secure a majority of the delega lion. This he failed to do, and they as honorable men asked personally of hini to be relieved of implied pledges, and were by him so relie t ed prior the caticusi, We have no doubt that the Press was actuated by the best of motives in its sealifor Mr. Hisoock, but a' moments reflect ion should have satisfied it that his nomination would have left our own I gtate out in the Cold :without any ._ thing. 'At least half of the delega ; tied thought of Beifer's election only in the light of a concession i to the State iof OhiO as the hoine of tilt, - lamented-TGarfield, and contingently as securing the Clerkship to Penn , . sylvitnia; in spite oLthe opposition of - Barr, Erret and -others who refused to be bound by the cantina to vote for Mr: McPherson. The influences that brought about Mr. Hiacock's defeat were not weilded by the Stal warts to any consideyable _degree. It . was apparent from the time the ° members began to assemble that the Speakership would go West, and that Ohio held the commanding . • Popular Republican Buie; Senor J. W.

This selection will be recognized as eminently strong and judicious. It combines fair geographical distribution, high representative character, earnest Republicanism. aggressive reform' pur poses and practical political and organ izing talent. It embraces men whose faithful and disinterested devotion to Republican principles will stand un challenged throughout the State, and who embody and represent the popular demand for the honest rule of an hon est majority: The Republicans Who are engaged-in this popular movement —for its whOle `strength lies in . n direct appeal to thit people—believe that they aro renderink the highest and best ser vice to the Republican party . in seeking to make it hilly responsive to the popu lar will, and the members of the Com mittee stand as good types of this Par poie. • Senator John Stewart is one of the ablest and bravest champions of the beat Republican sentiment In the Legislature be was a leader, of leaders, and among the people be is the oon spicions representative liberal, i 'pro gressive; true Republicanism. ! His clear bead, broad views. honest purpose and great capacity are a tower of strength to any cause. Mr., Geist is the fearless Editor of the Lancaster New ,Ent. who bas fought through many years- for better politics. Tbe selections for Philadelphia are admir able. The political standing and the high representative character of Col. William. MeMichiiel are as universally recognized as his fine intellectual gifts and his great personal worth, He . brings to the eauseet ' popular rule an honored name, a wide acquaintance, life-long. Republicanism and brilliant abilities: Samuel W. Pennypacker ha* been devoted for years to the principles of a better government, and is a gentle asan of deep convictions, rare 'mom.; plisiusienta. and clear, incisive, com-• prehensive thOught. • The remaining names from the State ars equally well chosen. Senator Davies was the representative and em-. bodiment of public sentiment in the atones preliminari to the recent State Convention. He is a cool, judicious, foreefulasa, whose coma, and co-op-, arationlein be et great service. Mr. „_ Philips was one of the nOnapienous sup porters of Mr. Wolfepin the' last gain paign--a widely-known and respected representative of the, oil region-I-end his designation signifies that the Re pnblicans who vote for Wolfe as a pro test against - pasty abuses are not to be treated as having by that act put them- selves outside of the pale of the piirty. but are welcomed to act as Peptiblieana for Ftepublimn reform within' the Re publican organization. Mr. Fleming was formilly Sheriff of Allegheny Cinn ty and is a gentleman of large political capacity, and experience. What is still more important, he has behind him in this movement and pledged - to his sup port, as we am able to My, the" real moral, intellectual, financial and busi ness strength of Allegheny. Of. Sena tor Lee himself, who, against his wish es for a more retired poeition, has been put at the front in this; movement, we need only say but he •is one of the barest, most disinterested and high minded among all the Itspnblicaullead ders. One of the first duties of this Execu tive Committee will be to designate the General Committee:of 251, correspozid ing with the number of the senators and representatives from the several districts, who will initiate the work of organization. And then will come the appeal to the people.—The Press WASHINGTON 'LETTER. (Editorial correspondence of Tnz,Rgruntscsi.] At this writing, Saturday evening it is decided, so far as the caucus of the dominant party can decide, who will be the elective officers of House. The Republican caucus assembled in the Hall of Representatives at noon to-day, Gov. Robescin, of New Jersey, presided. THE NOMINATIONS. The contest for ; the',speakership was animated and warmly contested. The names presented were Hiscock, of New York; Keifer, of Ohio; Kasson, of Iowa; Reed, of Maine; Burrows, of _Michigan; Orth, of Indiana; and Dunnel, of Minnesota. The first ballot demonstrated that Keifer held the key to the position. The vote stood, Keifer 53, Hiscock 45, Kasson 15, Reed 13, Burrows .10, . Orth 8, Dunnel 4. This result indicated clear ly that the speakership would go West. Thirteen of the Pennsylvania delega tion voted steadily for Keifer from the beginning; the other five votes were cast for Iliscock. The several ballots up So the sixteenth and final ballot proceeded wirh varying changes, Keifer holding his own, and Hiscock losing, when the break came, result ing in 93 votes for Keifer., Thus, Garfield's State and a Garfield Repub lican carries off the prize of the speakership of the House. THE CLEZKSHTP. Hon. Edward . McPherson, of Penn sylvania, was notninated for this re sponsible position on the 'first ballot, receiving )93 votes. Two other names were presented; Johnson, of New York, and J. H. Rainey, of Southl Carolina.. Rainey received 40 votes and Johnson 10; This is a remarkable triumph for Mr. McPherson, who went into-the caucus with a. divided delegation from his own State. Every possible device was resorted to by his political enemies in Pennsylvania to force another candidate upon the dele gation from their State. De B. Skyoular lap 'isyitsihnglua" 'newspaper correspondents for a week prior to the caucus, 'as the coming man. State ments were sent out that ' McPherson would not have inore , than three votes in his own delegation; that the dele gation would drop McPherson, to make Bunn of the Philadelphia Sun day Transcript, _Sergeant-at-Aims. At a conference of the. Republican Pennsylvania members on Saturday morning prior to the general caucus; this project was broached .by the • opponents of McPherson, when the fact was developed that atleast ten of the delegation were for McPherson. It also became apparent that with ten Penn - Sylvania votes he would probably be nominated on the first ballot. The project of presenting Bunn was not I pressed, and the conference adjourned without, action on the question of the Clerkship. Errett, of Allegheny and Barr of Dauphin, are bitterly person-, ally hostile to McPherson, and exerted every possible influence to reduce his vote in the delegation to the smallest possible number. After the nomina tion of . Speaker, these gentlemen left the general caucus and would not partici pate in the nomination of Clerk, assert ing that they would vote against his election in the organization of the' House, as they probably will. Me, Pherson will be elected nevertheless. This is bolting at the other end of the. line. The nomination of Mr. McPher son is a handsome tribute to his capac ity and faithfulness as Clerk of the House during ten years of former service in that capacity. • SERGEd,NT-AT-ARMS. This prize fell to Vermont, in the person of Mr. G. W. Hooker, on the first ballot. The vote in detail was as follows: Hooker 80, Geo. Frances Dawson,- of California, 28; Bunn, of Pennsylvania, 11; Fort, of:Illinois, 20; and J. H. Rainey 1. - : * :.) ; 4 The nomination of ' Doorkeeper was accorded to Tennessee, and the nomi nee is Col. W. P. Brownlow, a - nephew of the late Parson Brownlow, who was the unanimous choice of the" southern Republican Members, and he received 123 votes on the first ballot' for Jardine, of N. Y. and 3'scattering. The name of Mark Sherwood, of Michigan, a one legged soldier, and a . thoroughly competent young man was presented for the position of Postniaster of the House, and his nomination was made by acclamation. There were several candidates for. the office of chaplain of the Rouse, but when the name of Rev. J. P. Power, pastor of the Christian church, (Disciple,) of this city was presented, all other names were withdrawn, and Mr, Power was nominated by accla matipn. This is a feeling tribute to the memory 9f President Garfield, as well as a rospectfril consideration Pr the church of which he was a member,- both of which are represented in • Mr. Power; pastor of thwehurch whey"; 4e worshipped.t These nominations will no _doubt . : be ratified by the House on , : ?Sunday. The Foity-seventh Congress will be called to order at 12 o'clock; noon. ' Could this letter have reached you in time after the organization ,was per fected it would have been deferred until Monday evening; but knowing that that date would be too late for the next issue, I send it this evening. The annual Message of the Presi dent is looked for with .more than usual interest, as it will be the first from President Arthur. It will be, read in both houses :immediately after organization is perfeeted. . TEE GIIITEAV TRILL is slowly progresadw, The prisoner was put upon the witness stand by Mr. Scoville, and his testimony. in his di- . rect and Cross examination - occupied four days time of the Court. After he had gone throne' the searching cross examination of witness Porter, of N. Y. he left the witness box with an impression upon the minds of the audience, that a man who could so sharply and intelligently interpret the force , of the questions put to him by Judge Porter, and so readily and cnnninglyj devise and deliver his answers. is responsible for his acts, and the very general impression is that this will be the verdict of the jury. Our member . Hon. C. C. Jadwin, must not be classed as coining within the censure applied by the i Philadel phia Press to . the Pennsyliania Re publican delegation for their action in reference to Speaker and Clerk of the House. He has acted with perfect fidelity, and has been both wise and consistent 'in his course. He was personallyi for Mr. liiscock for Speaker, and foe Mr. • McPherson:,. for. Clerk. He stood by McPherson with his best efforts , and ex4rted a controlling influ ence in his 4elegation for him, and did not abandon Mr. Hiscock until all hope of his success was gone.

He' has a full 'round face, fringed with a bushy, broWn beard and wears'a wealth of black hair well:sprinkled with gray. He is more than an average debater and since his service in Congress has made the best possible use of his oratorical. powers. In his youth- he attended the common schools of , his native " county and finished his education at Antioch College, Ohio. In 1856 he began Abe study of law at Springfield,- where he now lives and was admitted - to practice in 1858.. He entered the Union army in April, 1861, as Major of the Third Ohio Infantry and less than a year afterwards was_promoted to the Lieu tsnant-Colonelcy of the same regiment and later, in 1862,. was made Colonel of the 11th Ohio infantry. He served in the West Virginia campaign' inlthe early part of the war,, and again in Kentucky and other southwestern States. He was transferred to the ,-Eastern army in 1664, and was severe ly wounded in the battle of the Wilder ' ness. ln November, 1864, he was breveted brigadeer general for gallant and meritorious conduct in Sheridan's I Shenandoah Valley campaign of that year in which he was twice wounded. On the_ , lst of July, 1865, he was breveted major-general for distinguished services rendered during the campaign rending lin the surrender of General Lee. July 27, 1865, he was mustered out of the service and resumed the pradtice of law in Springfield. In 1868 and 1869 he was a member of the Ohio`State Senate, and during the same time 'and for alew years following,- a prominent officer of the Grand Army of the Re public. He was *; a delegate to the National Convention in 1876, which nominated Hayes for the Presidency. In the same year Congressional :aspire= Lions siezed him, and he defeated, - ,tifter a hard fight, the Hon, William Law rence, now First Comptroller of the Treasury, for the Congressional' nom ination, and was elected and served in the Forty-fifth. Congress. Mr. Law rence again contested the nomination with him for the Forty-sixth Congress, but was again defeated, and Mr. Keifer nominated and elected,. He wilt again nominated for the . Forty-seventh Con= grasswithout serious opposition, and elected by a good majority. , M. Keifer is by no means the lea der, of the Republican side of the House but he possesses some qualifications which may make hiia successful as: a presiding Officer. He has shown him self quick in debate and rather ' f ond of being heard. He neyer attained dis tinction as a lawyer or a' C4gressman and appears to 'have;,beau elected Speaker by a lucky combination of the Stalwart forces: If:te can keep his temper and get over thowit; habita o mind which have given him the repu tntiun rit lifting petulant, if nut tummy, he my make 4 fah.

Mr. Errett was veil , mad and his threat to leave the caucus creited quite a stir. Mr. Cam erOn,. of Illinois, asked permission to put a question to Mr, Errett. He ask ed the' gentleman from Pennsylvania if he and the other gentleman he had W- I diluted Would vote for Mr, McPherson • if he was no:Mutated by the a , caucus. Mr. Errett replied that there was time enough to Reamer that question further along.

Mr. Page, of California, -nominated Mr. Daimon, of that State, for Clerk. . Speeches were made in favor of the different candidates. Mr. Houck, of Tennessee, repudiated the selection of Mr. - Bingham as a representrtive of the South, saying that the South had an other candidate for another place. The action of Messrs. Errett and Barr creat ed much sympathy for Mr, McPherson, the political animus of the .. quarrel in the delegation being well understood. He received ninety-three votes, nineteen more thanewere , required to nominate. Mr. Rainey received forty-two votes, Mr. Hooten, of Chester, two votes, and De B. Randolph Keim, of Berke, one vote. Mr. Hooker was' nominated Sergeant-at-Arms on the first ballot, receiving eighty votes. ' HONORING °MOGUL GARFIELD'S PASTOR.

Had bad the attention of twelve different physi cians, who prescribexi the best remedies known to the profession, such as iodide • potassium, arsenic, corrosive sublimate, sarsaparilla, etc. Had paid $5OO for medical treatment with but little relief. l,prevailed up= him to use the Crrioulia lissoLviesx iaternaliy,end the Cu rictum and Mumma ;Boas externally.
