the ore is
abundant, though of a low grade and ea-
8ily treated, it should continue to a uice
margin of profits.

Washington, Dec. 3.--fiousE. Long
before the hour of noon this galleries of the
House of Representatives were filled with
spectators to witness the opening scenes
of the forty-eighth Congress. The new
upholstering of the desks of members,
the bright colors of the carpeting of the
chamber and the baskets of flowers dis
tributed here and there throughout the
hall, served to enliven the scene, while
on the floor political feeling being laid
aside for the time, fiieudly greetings and
merry conversations were the order of
Uie day. Now aud then predictions might
be heard as to the result of the battle in
1884, aud a few speculations were indulg
ed in as to the probable chairmanships
of the more important committees of the
House, but aside from this the conversa
tions were of a social and non-political
character. As the floor was being clear
ed of strangers, some little excitement
was occasioned by the obstinate refusal
of 'Cal" Piuchover, a notable character
in Washington, to vacate a seat iu which
he had eusconsed himself. Blackburn,
of Kentucky, however, succeeded iu over
coming his objections aud leading him
from the chamber.
At precisely 12 o'clock clerk MePher
son took a staud at the clerk's desk and
rapped the house to order, and proceed
ed to call the foil of Representatives
elect. The State of Mississippi having
been reached, the clerk said he wished to
make a statement as to his failure to put
upon the roll the name of any Represen
tative elect from the secoud district. The
reason for this was that no paper which
could be cousidcred a certificate of elec
tion in the sense of the law had been
presented to him. Chalmers had filed
four exhibits iu support of his claim for
a seat, but neither individually nor col
lectively did these exhibits afford the
clerk of the House sutficieut authority tor
the enrollment of Chalmers. If the Gov
ernor of Mississippi had issued a certifi
cate of election to auy oue it had not
been presented to the clerk.
In regard to the First District of North
Carolina, the clerk stated that he had
uot received the certificate of the election
of the successor of Walter R. Pool, who
died iu August last.
The roll call disclosed the presence of
The nomination for Speaker being then
in order, Geddes, of Ohio, said : "I nom
inate for Speaker of the House for the
forty-eighth congress, Hon. Johu G. Car
lisle, of Kentucky, a man of pre-eminent
qualifications for the place. Cannon, of
Illinois, presented the name of Hon. G.
D. Robinson, of Massachusetts. Morri
sou, of 111., Tucker, of Va., Reed, of Me.,
and Calkins, of Ind., were appointed as
tellers aud the clerk proceeded to call
The reault was announced as follows :

1, (York, of North Carolina) ; J. W.
Wadsworth, of New York, 1, (Ochiltree,
ef Texas) ; Edward S. Lacy, Michigan, I,
(White, of Kentucky.)
The clerk thereupon declared Carlisle
elected, and Randall, of Pennsylvania,
aud Keifer, of Ohio, escorted that gentle
man to the chair. His ent ranee mto the
chamber was a signal for loud applause,
and the oath of office was administer
ed. Upon taking the chair Mr. Carlisle
"Gentlemen of the House of Represen
tatives : I thank you sincerely for the
high honor conferred upou me by the
vote just taken to be chosen from the
membership of a great body like this to.
preside over its deliberations, a distinc
tion upon which auy citizen might prop
erly congratulate himself, and I assure
yon that your kindness is fully apprecia
ted. At the same time I realize the tact
that the position which you have assign
ed ine is oue of very great labor aud re
sponsibility, and while profoundly grate
ful to you for this manifestation of vour
confidence, I shall euter on the discbarge
of its duties with a serious distrust ol my
capacity to meet iu an acceptable manner
the requirements of the ofnee. i promise
you, however, to devote to your service
all the zeal and ability ot wnicti i am

of order on the floor is essential, abso
lutely essential, to the intelligent and
systematic transaction of the public busi
ness, and I earnestly invoke your assis
tance iu the enforcement of the rules
adopted for the government of our pro
ceedings. "The larce addition to the membership
of this house resulting from the late ap
portionment of representatives makes
this dutv even more dimcult than it has
been before, aud without your cordial co
operation and support 1 cauuot reasona
bly hope to discharge even the ordinary
daily duties of this office. That you will
cheerfully co-operate with me in every
proper effort to preserve order aud to
facilitate the business of legislation I
have no doubt; but, gentlemen, I shall
ask something more 0? you than mere co
operation in the discharge of my duty,
assuring you of my earnest desire at all
limes to be just and impartial, otui i
cannot expect to avoid mistakes, anu

no doubt, to relv on the tnendly loroeai -

"Many reforms are undoubtedly neces
sary, and it will be your duty, after care

should extend, and when and iu what
manner they should be made. (Applause.)
If there be any who fear that your action
on this er any other subject will actually
be injurious to any interest, or even af
ford reasonable cause for alarm, I am
quite sure they will be agreeably disap

try has a right to expect is strict econo

; servance of the limitations of the consti-
tutiou, and scrupulous regard for the

the people in order that they may be
iw;icu, as rar as congress has power
to protect them, against encroachments
from every direction. Whatever can be
done under the circumstances surround
ing us to meet this expectation ought to
be done, in my judgment.
"But, gentlemen, without detaining
you further, I am ready to take the oath
of office prescribed by the constitution
and Uie laws and proceed to Uie organi
zation of the House. (Applause.)"
The irou clad oath of office was then
administered by Kelley, of Pennsylvania,
the oldest member of Uie House in con
tinuous service, and Speaker Carlisle
called the bouse to order.
The States were then called alphabeti
cally, and the representatives, as Uieir
names were called, came forward and
Converse, of Ohio, rising to a question
of privilege said that the clerk of the
House this morning had stated that had
the certificate of the Governor of Missis
sippi been presented to any person claim
ing to be a representative from the sec
oud district of that State he would have
placed his name on the roll. For reasons
which were satisfactory to Mr. Manning,
he bad chosen not to present that certifi
cate until action had been taken by the
House. He (Converse) had called upou
Manning's attorney and asked permission
to present Manning's credentials to the
House. It had been the nolicv of the
House by an unbroken train of precedents
10 seat, the member who held the certifi
cate of the Governor. He asked to have
the certificate read
Keifer, of Ohio, said that Manning had
never accepted the certificate. He had
put on the clerk's file a statement which
showed that he was beaten by 980 votes.
He had also in effect stated that he would
uot ask to be seated on that certificate.
Did the gentleman propose to force Man
ning to do what he would not do himself f
Converse replied not only that Man
ning held the certificate, and was prima
iacie entitled to tue seat, but upon a con
test it would be shown that he was en tit
led to it upon the merits of the case.
i ue cen lucate was read, aud after a
discussion over the right of the Republi
cans to demand tue reading of the other
papers on nie in the clerk's office, Con
verse offered a resolution reciting the
fact that Van H. Mauning holds the cer
titicate of the Governor of Mississippi,
aim providing that lie be immediately
qualified as the member from the second
district of that State, without prejudice
to the nnal right to the seat.
Kassou, of Iowa, doubted whether the
House had a right to order a man who
did not claim his seat to be sworn in, to
which (.'on verse replied that Manuingdid
claim his right to the seat.
The previous question was ordered
the resolution. Yeas 162, nays 128.
Caalkins, of Indiana, offered a resolu
tion providing that the certificate of the
Governor of Mississippi certifying the
election of Manning to this Congress from
the second district of that State, together

Last summer General Sherman made
his last annual inspection of the militai j
posts of the army, aud a good story is
told by oue of his staff officers of his visit i
to one of the Western frontier forts.
When the General arrived there was a
large crowd of ludians ou hand to look at
the "Big Chief of the Whites," as they
called him. After they had looked him
over to their heart's content, one of them
approached and said 5 "Ogb, big Iudian
bean want present of caunon." Gen.
Sherman glanced at the brave and ie-
plied : "I cannot give you cannon. What
do you want them for t You mean to use
them against by soldiers." Now an In
dian is not often guilty of anything ap
proaching wit, but this oue did very
well, fur be said, as he shook his head :
", vTMut omimit to kill soldiers, cau
kill soldiers with sticks. Want cannon
to kill cowboy." The reply was a good
one, but Mr. Indian didu't get his caunon
