i C 1. Steele, whose kind thoughtf ulness
is unfailing, has sent to us all the Jjack
numbers of the Congressional Record,
including those which contained the
debates which marked the closing days
of the Forty-Fifth Congress. There is
no more interesting reading than those
speeches made upon Hoar's amendmen
to the Mexican pension- bill, excluding
Jefferson Davis from the priyileges of
the pension; and we confess to a thril
of pride in the lofty eloquence with
which Thurraan, Lamar, Ransom, Coke
;and Garland repelled the wantonly
cruel assaults of Hoar, Blaine, Chand
ler and Edmunds. That debate will be
interesting reading a century hence
and Mr. Davis was most fortunate in
there being upon the floor of the Senate
gentlemen competent and manly enough
to hurl back the foul aspersions upon
his name. Their task was a peculiarly
delicate one ; they performed it with al
delicacy, and by virtue of justice and
right being on their side, and by reason
of the skillful use made by them of the
weapons of debate, they achieved an
intellectual victory among the most
conspicuous won during the session.
If we feel a pride in the bearing of
Gen. Ransom in that controversy, we
feel no less pride in his conduct of the
fierce debate between himself and Mr
Conkling on the river and harbor bill

It is not often perhaps not often

much engrossed in the affairs of this
working-day world, that it rarely ever
undertakes to do more for them than to
tell them what is going on around them.
If it neglects he cultivation of their
better natures it is more their fault af
ter all than its, for, having once found
out what they want to be told it is na
tural that it should tell them that and
leave the preaching of morals and re
ligion to those whose business it is to
preach these things.
J5ut we turn a little aside this morn
ing, and alter having told them the
news and preached politics to them for
live days in the weeks, address ourself

abstract propositions, born of some re-

The Question, of the Rules Speeches by
Stephens and Garfield.
Washington, March 2P. House.
The question raised by Reagan yes
terday to the effect that there were no
rules governing the actions of this
House, none: having been formally
adopted, was brought up by the Speak
er immediately after the reading of the
journal. The Speaker said he was not
present yesterday at the time the point
was raised in committee of the whole,
and stated that under rule 147 the rules
of the preceding nouse were declared
to be the rules of every succeeding
House until otherwise ordered. He
quoted the ruling of Speaker Grow on
that subject, and said he was not aware
of any other ruling at variance with it.
Its reason and object were to furnish
the House with a set of regular rules,
instead of committing it to the wide
sea of general parliamentary law. The
subject was discussed at considerable
The House at 12.40 went into com
mittee of the whole on the army appro

He argued in favor of the relevancy
and admissibility of the section, but in
timated his dissent from the theory that
the rules of one House governed
succeeumg nouses unless re-adopted.
There was no question in his mind but
that the pending section was germane
and was in the direction of retrenching
rxurnuiiurrs. iieirencnment was not
only possible and probable, but certain.
He discussed the laws of 1793 and 1807,
and argued that they did not apply to

There was no need for such a tiling.
The country had got along without it

showed how by the abstention of the
majority in either house from the per

government could be broken un.
and declared that this was thp first

it had been proposed or insisted upon

and yet that was the proerammp. an

Jt the pending proposition was the
simplest and most inoffensive, still
when it was demanded as a matter nf

not against the proposition itself, but
against the Democratic methods that he

It was a law proposed bv a DemneH
