Washington, I). O., June 7. Gen.
Wheeler is a little brash. Several
times recently he has assailed Ed

- attack on Friday night at the session
intended for private pension bills
was printed in' extenso in the
last number of the. Congressional
Record. This morning Judge Kelly
made a motion to expunge the speech
from the Record, or to prevent its
Dublication in ! future editions. He
said he should submit someremaiks

personal relief bill. -
Some of the North Carolina mem-,
bers, friendly to the measure, re
marked this morning in the hearing
of your correspondent that no bank
ruptcy bill would probably be passed
at this session. It is said that the
reason is the opposition of western
members, whose States have local
laws deemed sufficient.
News received here is favorable to
the re-nomination : of Col. W. J.
Green. But the rule requiring a
, twothirds vote will make it not
easy for his friends to secure the re

On motion of Mr Reed, of Maine, a

Mr. Kelly, of Pennsylvania, called
up as the privileged question, the
motion submitted oy mm yesterday
to expunge from the Record and
and speech of Mr, Wheeler, of Ala
bama, upon Edwin M. Stanton. He
based his question of. privilege on a
conscious, , deliberate, persistent
abuse of the order of the House by
the representative of the Eighth dis
trict of Alabama. In lieu of the mo
tion made yesterday, he submitted a
resolution reciting that Mr. Wheeler
had been guilty of abuse of the order
of the House, inasmuch as his speech
had not been made upon any pension
bill, and declaring that as the deliv
ery of the speech was without the
sanction of tne House, and in contra
vention of the special order, the said
speech be expunged from the Record
and prohibiting the public printer
fronrfurnishing it in pamphlet or
Reagan, of Texas, raised a point of
order against the resolution. The
speech bad been made by the unan
imous consent of the House, and
therefore could not be an offense
against the House. .
The Speaker replied that it was not
in the province of the chair to decide
whether it was an abuse or not. It
was alleged to be an abuse by the gen
tleman from Pennsylvania, and the
question was to be decided by the :
Kelly then proceeded to speak at
length and his remarks were listened
to with great attention by the House;
He was unwilling, ho said, that the
future readers of the record of the
proceedings of this CongredS-should,
by any possibility, be able to suspect
him of having sat by, through what
must have involved three hours lis
tening to slanders which had been re
futed f r twenty five years, and
many of which were now absolutely
putrescent, on one of the . most un
selfish patriots the couutry had ever
produced, and one of the most beV
loved friends he had ever known in
his long life. . He was unwilling that
ha should be suspected of listening to
a paper which feebly regretted that
in a moment of beat, its author had
denounced Abraham Lincoln and Ed
win Stanton as conspirators, and
Stanton as an arch conspirator
against the character . of particular
American citizens, and as combining
to thwart the Union army. He was
unwilling that posterity should be
told in the Congressional Record that
the Republican party had sat quietly,
in the hours of midnight to hear these
slanders on '? Lincoln and Stanton
poured put hour by hour, and that
no man, either Republican or Demo
crat, who had periled his life under
the administration of war power by
Lincoln and Stanton for the support
of the Unionr should' have failed to
say "these slanders are nowl offens
sive to all honest loyal uoion men
haviog tested ? jo ; heaps, breathing
noxious odor, or been' consigned
scores Of years ago to the cessation
of gossip." The country owed some
thing to the illustrious dead, and he
did not believe that such scandalous
matter as wag enoooiea jq the 25
columns of this paper would be sent
to posterity with the sanction of tho
American Congress, which, if it vin
dicated its own order, must declare
that there was no warrant for utter ,
ing the speech and none for declar
mg through the Congressional 'Re
cord, that it had been made with the
unanimous consent of the House.
.After a long speech in defense of
Stanton by Kelly, of Pennsylvania!
Morrison cut ehtrt further discussion
by moving to refer Kelly's resolution
to the committee on rules agreed to

did hot last lone, however, until their
worst fears were realized, tor : as tne
fire burned lower, two distinct charred
forms could be seen among .he ashes
and debris of the back part or the
house: used as a kitchen. The posi
tioh of the bodies as they were lying
near the burning dining table, clearly
indicated that, they were murdered
while eatine their evening meaF One
was at each end of the table, and the
woman's body had partly fallen into
an bid cellar, the wildest excitement
was now manifested among the gath
ering-crowd as to who could have
done ' this dastardly , and; terrible
deed. Soon, however, suspicion was
fixed upon the two negroes Long
and Womack, who are tenants and
live near McBride's house. In asking
Alf Long how - be came fco first
discover the fire, he said be beard
the dogs bowling, and that they were
tied near, the fire and he ran to the
house to turn the dogs loose, but that
they were too near the fire for him
to reacn inem, and tnat tney, were
burned up. This was falsi, as the
dogs were Ued at their usnaL place
and turnea up hu ngni, xms, wun
other circumstancfs, led to their
arrest by the crowd, and they were
held until the UoroDer could be sum

the case. The Coroner arrived late
Saturday evening, and after examin

guilty prty. Whfc'ri he (Alf Long)

Charlotte, N. C,, June &-For
brilliant commencements the Char-,
lotte Female Institute is not to be

last evening was the finest ever held.
Tjhe qiicert hall had ; been enlarged
by th3 present principal so as to m -crease
its capaeity 'hy '- two hundred
visitors, and at the earoe time 1 im
prove its ventilation, so that, thougn
there were nfeany nve nunareo per
sons in attendance, the heat was nob
at all oppreseive. : -
The commencement , on Tuesday
night opened with prayer by. the
Rev.v Dr. Kobey ot tne Metnoaist
Church;- The. address was made by
the Eev. W. S Licy of the Presby
terian Church..; "lis subject was
Tact."- The characteristics, power
and desirability of tact were learnedly
and - humorously dwelt upon. . . 1 he
address abounded in illustrations, in
which the well known humor of the
speaker and his ready wit scintillated
wun tneir Drmiancy. . . :
- After the address the principal an
nouaced the names of the pupils who
had received "distinction; in their
studies.- Among them were the fol
lowing' young ladies from Jsoutn
Carolina: Misses Euth Allen, Janie
Gregg, Sophie Haskell, Mary Steed,
Joan Behre, Anna Ciowny, Janie
Clowny, j Nettie Drafts, Josie Izard,"
Mattie Izard and Mattie McKeown.
When g young lady completes the
course of stijdy in any sgljogl. and
attains the standard of J'distinccipa"
therein, she receives what is called
a certificate of . proficiency, and
might be ajd to be graduated in that
school. Miss SrUth Ajlen. received a
ceitificateof proficiency in mathema
tics, and Miss Janiu Gregg in Iat'n,
Miss Josie Russell, also from South
Carolina, was the only English
graduate this year. Miss Russell
also won the prize of the "English
medal" for the best essay on the rise
and deveI?pmentof the English
South Carolina was represented
among the full graduates by Miss El
la Biam. Bibles, diplomas, and the
graduate's medal were presented to
the seven iuii graduates, and diplo
mas to two graduates in music; one
of which was Miss Ruth Allen, who
among her other attainments.achiev
ed the distinction of being the finest

atas excluivly. The.-e are to be
handsome gol4 medals. ;
The annual concert ' Wi dnesdav
evening waa the grand finale of the
commencemeat exercises. As has
been implied already, it was the
most popular und brilliant concers.
the institute ha3 given to Charlotte
undr its pri-?enF regime. I would
tnakJ spedal mention of Von Weber's
Kando lirilaame, a piano duet for
four piAnos, in . which the Misses
Izard. Haskell, and Blnin appeared,
and (odef roi'J's most beautiful
"Awakening of the Fairif-s," for
four pianos, led by Misss " Allen on
the grand piano. There were parts
of this play as soft and featherly as
a fairy?s wings, and the crowded
audience showed their appreciation
of the beauty of the music and - the
skill of the players by keeping per
fect silenoo to listen to the ' silvery
sounds, so low and yet so distinct, as
if they expected to see the fairies
theme elves ; flutter into the room.
Miss Aljen also rendered, with the
great' applause : ; pf the audience,
Weber's version of . ''Home, Sweet
Home," with only the left band.
After the concert was Over the "art
exhibit was thrown open to visitors.
Everybody in North and South Caro
lina has heard of the art exhibits of
the Charlotte Female Institute. One
was made a few years agp at the
State Fair in Columbia, the next year
there was another at the State Fair
in Raleigh.1 They excited much, at
tention at . the time. The . annual
exhibits during commencement week
fully sustain the reputation of . the
institute as one of the best art schools
any where in the Soutb. The array
of paintings and drawings and deco
rative works wa9 magnificent. - Th
catalogue of the ai t exhibit showed
that two hundred and thirty pieces
of art were on exhibition. In it I
noticed the names of the following
young lady artists from South Caro
lina:. Missen Gregg, Haekell, Izard
and ' Clowny. Youth and - beauty
kepjt the exhibit . room, and the spa
cious halls of the institute crowded
with promenading couples until past
midnight ' Thus closed one of the
most brilliant commencements ever
held in Charlotte. -
