HERALD ARD EXPOEFEOH
Tuesday, Jan. I. —Neither house of Congress
was in session to-day. The President held
his u ual New Year's Levee, and the Foreign
Ministers and thousands of visiters called to
pay their respects. The city of Washington
was exceedingly gay and anipated during the
day, and the contest for Speinlier was for
Wednesday, Jan 2.—The Senate not in
session. In the House Mr. Millson moved the
reading of the President's Message. Mr.
Stanton objected. He thought the President
had been guilty of indecency in thrusting his
message in, the face of members. It was a
most disreputable document, falsifying truth
and the whole history of the government, from
the commducement till now. The whole sub
ject was laid on the table "Mr. Knight, of
Pennsylvania, offered a resolution to elect a
speaker by a pluritlit l y vote, which was lost.—
The 85th and 86th ballotk were then taken for
speaker, but resulted in no choice.
Thursday, Jan, 3.—ln the Senate, Mr. Hale
remarked that he was not in his seat when
the President's annual Message came in, else
he should have objected ,to its reception, as it
was irregularly sent here. He would not
pretend to state the reasons why the President
took such an extraordinary and unprecedented
course; but Yankees were allowed to guess,
and he would by no means presume to say
that the President has taken this opportunity
to go down on his knees to the South, because
several of the Southern States are to hold
Democratic conventions about the Bth of Janu
ary. (Laughter.) If that was the case, he
was'sorry the President had taken so much
pains for nothing, for there is just as much
chance for one of the §enate's pages to be
nominated for the Presidency, as Mr. Pierce.
(Laughter ) The President takes up much of
his Message in. talking about Central Ameri
can affairs; but he (Mr. Hale) thonglit there
was a place in the central part of the United
States, on which the eyes .of the people are
turned with vastly more attention—namely,
Kansas. Mr. Hale, stated on the authority of
Mr. Calhoun, that the Monroe docrine, so
much talVed about, was originally suggested
by the British Cabinet. True, us was said by

imputation. God, for the punishment of our
national sins, or the humiliation of our na
tional pride, had permitted Franklin Pierce to
occupy the Presidential Chair, and he comes
down into the arena of the demagogue, strip

with executive dignity. (Laughter.) Mr.
Wilson offered a resolution, which lies over,
calling on the President for information rela•

In the House, Mr. Mace offered a resolution

succeed JC!ement the Fourth, in 10_18, the
Cardinals were for nearly three years unable
to agree on the choice of a successor, and
were on the point of breaking up, when the
magistrates of Rome, by the advice of St.
Benjqmin, shut the gates of the city and
lathed up the Cardinals until they agreed.—
lle was not so much of a linow , lNothing as
not to acknowledge the binding authority of
this precedent. (Laughter.) If the resoluti.m
is adopted, he ventured to say that the calls of
nature, either for refreshment or otherwise, •
(laughter) would be such as to force no
election of Speaker within ten hours. (ylerri•

tion was tabled: Mr. Walker proposed that
the American party should vote for Mr. Boyce,
of S. C. instead of Mr. Fuller, for Speaker.—
Mr. Dunn appealed to the friends of Banks to
support Mr. Pennington. The House di Ino
entertain either suggestion. Mr o, of
Pa., moved that after Saturday night no mem

elected. It was received with laughter but

Banks 'Mon to surrender their preferences and
go for Mr. Leiter. Mr. Knowlton replied and
reminded Mr. Dunn and iv few others, elected
on the Anti Nebraska issue, that they could,
if they would, relieve the House from its en
tanglement. The 92d ballot was gone through
without any result.

for have enthusiastic friends; and, , , , secondly,
that if either is elected, he will not decline
the honor of the chair. He did
that any successful candidate would so con
duct himself as to occasion .just reprehension
of his official conduct. In the present con
dition of the public mind, it would be injuri
ous to the country to elect as Speaker a
gentleman who is the embodiment of the ex
treme sentiment of either section, and he pro
posed, as a compromise, Mr. Millson of Va.,
who was opposed to the alien suffrage feature
in the Nebraska bill, voted against its passage,
and was not in the Democratic caucus which
nomininated Mr. Itichat:dson. He appealed
to moderato and conservative men to assist
him in puting an end to this strife.
Mr. Broom could not agree with Mr. E.her
idge to descend from their exalted position
and pursue the course suggested. Let all who
were elected on the paramount issue of Ameri
canism come together, and agree upon a can
didate, or let the llouse adopt the resolution
he would offer, namely, that the friends and
supporters of the prominent candidates for the
Speakership he requested to withdraw them
from the further action of the Honse, and that
the membeis representing the dWrent parties
in the House meet, each party appointing a
committee of five, with a view to selecting a
cortnpromise candidate for Speaker.
Mr. Millson expressed surprise at the an
nouncement of his name in that connection,
and requested Mr. Etheridge to withdraw the
Mr. Stepluihs opposed Mr. Broom's resolu
Lion as wholly impracticable:", Mr. Etheridge
finally withdrew his motion. A long and de
sulitory debate then ensued upon the merits of
the several parties, particularly Americanism,
and Mr. Broom's resolution was then laid ou
the table. The House then voted twice for
Speaker, (the 94th ballot) without a choice;
the House then adjourned.
Last week we published au account of a hor
rible murder by the "Wakemanites of New
Haven : but the most horrible murder that ev
er took place in the State of Connecticut, or
perhaps in the civilied world, was pi4-lietra
ted on Monday, in the town of Woodbridge, in
that State, about eight miles from New Pa
wn. It was a far more atrocious murder than
the one so recently committed by Samuel Sly
and the gang of Wakemanites.
About 10 o'clock on Monday Mr En4e.ll
Sperry, of Woodbridge, left his home, and nag
proceeding through a piece of woods near his
house, with his horse, and aleigh„and, when
pear a little brook, in a solitary ''part•of the
woods, was attacked by a man named Chas.
Sanford, and knocked down and most brutally
Sanford had anaxe iu his hand with which
he struck Mr. Sparry over the right eye, in
flicting i fearful gash, and prostrating him be
side the road. . Ile then snuck him again with
the head of the axe upon the hack of his head,
and then deliberately attempted to chop off
his head, nearly severing it from his body,—
It was connected with his body only by a lit
tle skin at the back of the neck. The horse
of Mr. Sperry was allowed to pass on the road,
and after proceeding by the house of Mr. Sam
uel F. Perkins, halted at a shed near by. Mr.
Perkins, 'thinking all was nut right, went in
search of Mr Sperry, and found the body ly
ing beside the road, with every indication that
he had been waylaid and murdered.
It seems that after murdering Mr. Sperry,
Sanford went to the house of Mr Hmberfield
and entered it. and while ho (Mr. Umbertield)
was sitting by the stove in the kitchen, he
struck him with the saute axe with which lie
murdered Mr. Sperry, and, after breaking his
scull, nearly severed his head from his body.
The family net up the cry of "Murder !" but
he told them to stop 'their noise, or lie would
