FIE,FALD AND EXPOKTOR•
Wednesday, Jan. 16 —The Senate not in
session to-day. Mr. Thornington offered a
resolution that Lewis D. Campbell, of Ohio,
be declared Speaker of the House. Be said
his reason for offering the resolution was to
contribute his mite towards an organization
Ile had proposed Mr. Campbell's name be
cause he hod heard him spoken of as less ob
jectionable to some portions of the Douse than
Mr. Banks. Mr. Galloway, though personally
favorable to Mr. CaMpbell, could n9t change
his position till he was assured the sentiment
of the house was in Mr Campbell's favor.—
Mr. Giddings said this resolution had been
thrown into the House without consulting
those voting for Mr. Bunks, and be whom lie
would stand until he could see that a change
of vote wns for the better. Mr. Mace said the
fact of the Boum; being unorganized was at
trilmted to the anti Nebraskaites, who have
majority and can any day effect the election
of a Speaker, if they choose but to surrender
their personal preferences. After sonic further
debate another ballot was had, resulting as
follows: Banks 88; Richardson ti 3; FullerV,),
Pennington 8; Scattering 5 Necpsary to a
choice 98. Adjourned,
Thursday, Jan. 17.- T -1n Sennte, on motion
of Mr. Clayton a resolution was passed, re
questing the President to communicate to the
Senate all the instructions in, relation to Cen.
tral American affairs not heretofore furnished.
The President was also requested to furnish
the adjudication of the American Commission
ers at Paris, respecting the French spoliation
upon American Commerce. The presiding
officer was, on motion, authorized to appoint
the Committee on Printing. In the House,
Mr Carlisle made a speech, in which he argued
that the failure to organize grows out of the
disturbance of the Compromise measures, and
the passage or the Kansas-Nebraska act
The latter, he said, had given food to the
heartless agitatii . M.' Mr. McMullen followed,
defending the Democracy from the attacks of
Mr. Carlisle After further debate, in which
several participatid, another rote was bud for
Speaker, resulting as; follems:—Banks, 04:1
Richardson, 68: 32; Pennington, 6;
Scattering, 3. Mr"! Williams renewed his
resolution to elect by plurality after three
more trials. Lost—yeas 04, nays 106. Ad
Friday, Jan. 18.—The Senate is not in
session to day. In the House, Mr. Mace, ad
dressing himself to the statesmen, not the
mere partisans of the House, offered, in a spirit
of compromise, a resolution declaring Mr.
Banks (Republican) Speaker; William Cullom
(American) Clerk; A J. Glysbenner, Sergeant
at, Arms; John M. Johnson, Postmaster, and
Z. W. McKrew, Doorkeeper, the last three
being the Democratic caucus nominees. The
revolution was laid in the table, by a vote of
to 90. Mr. Giddings advocated the adop
tion of the plurality resolution, declaring that
the house cannot organize on any other princi
ple. Ile called on the Democrats to follow
their own precedent. Mr. Cobb, of Geo.,/said
the Democratic caucus in 18.19 rejecied,the
plurality proposition, which was subgeqent
adopted by the Whigs, nided by a few Demo
crats, and in this statement he was sustained
by several gentlemen. With the Republicans
the issue is, Ban ks and disorglthlzation, in
preference to Mr. Campbell, of Ohio, whom
they could have elected the other day, if all
had v0t , 41 for Mr. Thorington's
Mr. Tappan, in reply to Mr. Cobb, said the
vote on Mr, Therington's resolution was not a
fair test, as 'lto Republicans had made a nomi
natiolvtber than Mr Campbell, of Ohio. The
vote ft iipettk o y
er vest, showed that there
was n t .nn anti-Nebraska majority in the
Ilout4. The debate invoking the question et
the responsibility of the failure to organize,
was confined to the Republican and Democrats.
Mr. Clingman offered a resolution, that
until a Speaker shall be elected, the first busi
ness each day shall be to vote twice, and no
debate shall he indulged in, under any pre
text, till this is done, and the House shall not
order a vote a third time on the same day
Pending the question on the resolution, the
giturday, Tan. 19.—The Senate „is not in
session to-day. In the House, a resolution by
Mr. Clingman was adopted, prohibiting debate
or personal explanation during the calling of
roll, and preventing this rule and the rule
limiting members to teii minute speeches from
being suspended eicept by unanimous con
sent. The hundred and seventeenth ballot
then took place, when Banks received 04,
Richardson 69, and Fuller 31 votes. A debate
then arose on the plurality vote, and at its
close Mr. Clingman offered a resolution that:
for ono week, unless a Speaker be Sooner
elected, no debate shall be in order unless by
unablmous consent s This was adopted. by a
majority of 45, and the House adjourned.
Monday, Jan. `4l.—ln the Senate, a number
of petitions were presented from retired and,
dismissed oliloors of the Navy,: Mr. 8011, oft
WED IiSDAY, JANUARY 23, 1856.
Tenn., while approving generally the action of
Bortrii, thought that Lieut. Maury's eminent
service should have exempted him from a sen
tence which he considers a world of .degreda
lion. Several gentlemen participated iu the
'debate, discussing the remedies for the mis
takes the Navy Board may have committed.—
The Senate then adjourned till Thursday. In
the House, Mr. Boyce made an ineffectual
motion to recind the resolution prohibiting
debate for one week unless a Speaker shill
sooner be elected, except by unanimous con
sent. Mr. Faulkner °tiered a resolution ihat,
it no Speaker shall be elected by Monday next,
the members shrill resign, and tin adjournment
ensue till the second Monday in May. The
resolution was laid on the table by 26 majority.
Several other resolutions were offered rind
laid on the table, and the House then again
voted for Speaker, with the following result:—
Banks 92, Richardson 66, Fuller 31, Penning
ton 2, Campbell, of Ohio 3, Mes-r . Porter,
Haven and Shorter each one. Necessary to a
choice, 99. After which Mr. Rust offered
resolution declaring it as the sense of the
House that Messrs. Banks, Richardson, Fuller,
and Peunioglon, by withdrawing their names,
would remove the obstacles to au organization.
Mr. Fuller said he wished to remove one ob
■tacle by withdrawing. Mr. Pennington re
marked, that if lie stood in the way of an or
g be dot - not wish to occupy that
position any longer Mr. Rust then withdrew
his resolution. The House adjourned.

We extract the following relating to the
'Scotch-Irish,' from an Essay on the Life of
Chief Justice Gibson, by Wm. A Porter:
The parents of Dlr. Gibson resided tittle
date of his birth, on the Bth of November,
1780, in Sherman's Valley, then Cumberland,
new Perry County, Pennsylvania. Ills ances
try on the side of his father originally Scotch*,
and then Irish, pass generally under the name
of Scotch people whose story is enti
tled to an important place on the page of his
tory. It was known that they were a body of
men driven — fratti — their own country to the
north of Ireland by the persecution of the
Stewarts, there to remain for a few genera
