    Men and Things at Washington.
PARSON BROWNLOW, of the Jonesborough,
iTenn.) Whig, could not resist the temptation
of being in Washington to witness the Inaugu
ration of Gen. TAYLOR, and while there he bu
sied himself in seeing sights which he commu
nicated by letter to the readers of his spicy
Journal. His impressions of men and manners I
are decidedly original, and his descriptions are 1
rich in the extreme. A letter from him under
date of March 2d, is so unique and like himself
that we copy the following extracts from it:
I have been present during • the dis- I
cussian of the Territorial question, or
the proposition to admit Californiti, and
New Mexico into the Union, as a State,
er as States, in both the House and - the
Senate. I witnessed discussions i n I
1832, and again in 1844, and I sin sor
ry to say that the tendency of men andl
manners, is downward. Especially is
` 4l this the case in the Senate, more so in
the Senate than in the House. Great
confusion prevails in both, while that
order and dignified deportment which
characterized these bodies in the better
days of the Republic, are numbered
with the years beyond the flood. The
Senate is the mast contemptible body
6f the two. There are but few fine and
imposing looking men in the Senate.
Benton, Badger, Bell, Mangum, Under
wood, Webster, Calhoun, Upham, Phelps
Metcalf, Johnson, and a few others, look
like Senators aria will command respect.
Most of the remaining Senators are
young looking men, in a great degree
inexperienced, and of disgusting mein
and little carriage. Many of them are
under size, and in their manners fool
ish. Douglass, of Illinois, weighs 100
pounds, and wears dirty clothes.

The moat remarkable man in the I
House, is Horace Greely, a New York
editor. He speaks fluently, but with-,
out the manners and•gesticulations coin
mon to public speakers. He is an odd
looking specimen of mortality. As he
walks from you, you are struck with his
stooping shoulders—his bald pate—his
sandy whiskers—his hopping gated—he
looks to be seventy
_years of age, while
he is really a young man. He. has a
deep set, but benevolent eye—a eon
. stela but simple smile plays upon his

" President Polk is 20 years older in
appearance than when he canvassed for
the .office of Governor in Tennessee."
" Cave Johnston looks grey, old, dry
and feeble, and a stranger would sup
pose he ad seen better days. Amos
Kenchtli looks lean and lank, stooped
shouldered and like the latter end of an
ill spent life. Old Marcy looms up as
usual, and whether drunk or sober, may
fitly be denominated the upper crust of
all political nastiness. George M. Dal
las is the finest looking man in the loco
foci) ranks, and is the best specimen of
an English nobleman to be seen in
Washington. Millard Fillmnre, is the
is the finest looking man in the Whig
ranks, and Speaker Winthrop is the
next best in appearance. Mr. Calhoun
is sinking fast, tinder the weight of
years and of mental labor."
• * • • • •
A very large party of gentlemen
and lathes dined with Mr. Polk yester
day, upon a Special invitation, among
whom were Old Zack, Gen. Cass, Col.
Hell and Marcy, Filltriere and others.
Gen. Taylor was as familiar and play
ful with Marcy, us if he had never giv
en him jesse in the Gaines letter,.and as
polite to Cuss, as if neither of.. them had
aver created any " noise and confusion"
in the country."
" I was not present, my name having
been overlook (no doubt unintentional
ly) in the hurry of issuing the tickets
of invitation. Having eulogized the
President's Grandfather, "Old Zeke,"
in former days, it is certain that he In
tended me to be present."
In a subsequent letter he thus de
scribes the rows which oceurredin the
souse just Arevious to adjournment:
"After a majority of , the House be
intoxicated, and many
,of them
even beittly drunk, Mr. Meade of Vir
;ginia, loco, advanced upon old Giddings
.ot Ohio—took him . by the throat, and
ilbl;ed his fist under his nose , denoun
cing with nittlies and bitterness : suited to
' the eccasion„ . c nosing gicat. excitement,
. a roiv g e nerally on that side
Housd! Mr. Clarke, of Kentuck y, a to-'
co, advanced upon Wentworth, and cur
sed thin for a d-----d thief and scoun
and every thing elSe hs could think
. of, till of which he bore like a christian,
. .
-but from's principle of cowardice. This
Clark could charge with impunty, be
cause Wentworth is known to be a com
mOn• thief and a public robber. The
House last. session, had to pass a luw
to prevent him from stealing and frank
home all the stationery. And the mem
bers throw up to him, his stealing enough
wrapping paper one year, with which
to print 9 paper of which he is the os
tensible editor."
The next scene of interest, and
surpassing in grandeur, any thing yet
named, was an attack upon Ficklin, of
a loco, by two other locos John
son of Arkansan, and Inge of. Alabama.
The former struck Ficklin with his fist,
and the latter knocked him down with
a cane. After removing Ficklin beyond
the bar, and washing the blood off of
him, the parties all returned and pro
ceeded to business! One moved an ad
journment, as the session had expired
by limitation. Old Petit, of Indiana, .a
*deco infidel, who was educated for
the X f ini ry; inisve.d an adjournment of
this TOWN MEETlNG . ,"'declaring the
session to be nothing more. A third
moved for the dispersion of this mob,"
while another called out from his seat
for more whiskey. To this, another
fellow replied, that it was contrary to
rule to bring the article within the bar,
Mit just outside, in an adjoining room,
there was lots. Well, all in all I never
witnessed such a scene."

It is said that the Emperor of Russia had de
clared to the French Ambassador at Letlo, at
St. Petersburg, that he should acknowledge the
French Republic if Cavaignac were elected
President, but since the election of Napoleon
he has changed his tone. He considers this a
sign of a still existing spirit of conquest. Gen.
