Mr. Cameron thought no good could

Mr. Kye asked if there was anything to
prevent General Grant from doing tbe
same thing if be could find the stake.
Mr. Cameron was wilting to pay bis pro
portion of ball expenses; supposed it
would cost them 930 a piece ; he did not
mind tli is, but be did not want any of it
in the Capitol. Four years ago we were
disgraced in this chamber, in the eyes of
tbe world, and the foreign ministers in
sulted, and although he had no fear of a
inpMhiuii of that scene, he thought ft ww
kattar to avoid all these ceremonies. The
next tbinar we might hafig a" President who

Mr. Trumbull thought it exceedingly

resolution was essentially hip in itself,
and would set a bed precedent. People
would want to dance at other time than
the inauguration, and there would be no
end to tbe applications that would be' made
for the uae or tbe Capitol tor a uance.
Mr. Patterson, or New Hampshire, ke
lieved it would offend tin prejudices of a
large portion of the American people to
fire up this building to sneh n purpose.
H would sooner danee in n tent.
Mr. Fessenden- Can't get one big
Mr. Patterson Well. then, let them
danee under the tent of Heaven.
Mr. Hendricks asked whether the Capi
tol had ever before been used for a danee
Mr. Nye was sorry that tke religions
prejudices of the Senator from New Hamp
shire had been aroused, but they had
scriptural authority for dancing. There
bad been dancing before the ark, dancing
alter coming out of the Red sea, and va
rious other times when dancing was per

Mr. Patterson, of New Hampshire, ask

Mr. Nye There have been many worse
shows here than the Black Crook.

Mr. Cameron thought it would be mueb
hotter for all concerned to have the ball
umawhn else. Xo lionors wcit! to be
had here, it is said, and this would make
it very dull ; for a dry dance is no dance
at all. Laoghter.l
Mr. Ooukling remarked tbat undoobt
edly a large part of tbe American people
would regard the giving up or mis upi
tol to a ball as most inappropriate. Tin
ball would be held, of couns whether 1:
waa held here or not. and General Grant
could certainly be inaugurated in pnnu
an of the constitution and laws, even if
no ball was held.
Mr. Fessenden could see no harm at
all in letting the parties have the Capitol.
His moral and religious sensibilities niigln
be very obtuse, but he could see no dan
ecr in It. and those who thought the Cap
itol would bo desecrated could stay a ways
