Senator Hoar enjoyed his
New Year's day dinner less
even than his Christmas dinner
if it were possible. Senator
Stewart spoiled his Christmas
dinner by his speech against
the Force bill and his appetite
for his dinner was killed by a
grand triple attack upon his
pet scheme for getting even
with the South by Senator's
Wolcott, Teller and Hale. The
first named Senator fired broad
side after broadside into . the
Force bill . of unanswerable
argument; the groundwork of
his logic being opposition to
enacting a law for he purpose
of placing an acknowledged
ignorant and incompetent ma
jority over au intelligent ma
jority, lie stated plainly that
if there were a majority of
ignorant negro voters in the
State vt Colorado, solidly op
posed to tho united intelligent
whitfl wites, that in some way
and by dome method tho white
vote would govern. That lie is
a broad guage man the follow
ing words from his speech fully
demonstrates: "For a quarter
of a enntury, out from poverty
and despair, the South has been
reaching forth in efforts to
ulant its foot on the solid rock
of material prosperity; and in
view of the marvellous growth
and transformation now taking
place in the ronthcrn States, I
believe it would bo unwise and
unpatriotic lor us to iuteifero
in the conduct of its internal
Senator Telia:- speech was a
ringing demand for the shelv
ing of the Force bill and the
enactment of the financial legis
lation demanded by the people
of the country, which he des
cribed as bemg on the very
verge of a iinan;iai panic.
Senator Hale's remarks, which
piobably hurt the would-be-leader
from Massachusetts more
than all tho rest, was an attack
Ui'ori Mr. Hoar chargimc him
with being responsible for the
month's time which has been
wasted in consideration of the
Force bill, aud demanding the
speedy disposal of that measure
in order that other and mora
necessary legislation might
have a chance. Mr. Hale also
took occasion to" give the clo
ture, or gag rule now pending,
which he says is altogether
needless, a few hard raps. Take
them ail in all they were Ihreo
of the most remarkable speech
es ever made made in ; Congress
outside of a secret caucus a
gainst a party measure by mem ¬
bers of tho same party.
And yet, there is a
grounded fear on the part of
democratic Senators that by ti e
vigorous-use of the iarty whip
and the administration patro
nage the bill may be parsed, if
it ever reaches a vote, which it
will not do if the democrats
can by any means prevent it.
la order to defeat it up m a
vote, assuming that every Sena
tor will be in his neat or pair
ed, it is necessary that eight
republicans should vote against
it, and only three have yet
openly announced the'r inten
tion of so voting, ' although
tbeie are a dozen or more who
have privately expressed tl em
selves as being opposed to it.

VOTE OF 1 1 OX. IS. F.
A miatate has been going the
rounds of tho papers in relation
to the Congressional vote of
the Thhd Congiessional district
that needs to be correct fd.
Some of them have it that the
Hon. Mr. Cowles received the
largest majority of any Demo
cratic Congressman elected.
Other say that the Hon. S. B.
Alexander, of Wilmington dis
trict, received the . largest ma
jority. These are mistakes. The
official count shows that the
Hon. B. F. Grady, who had not
before run for office at tb.3 bal
lot box, received the largeft
majority. His majority was
8,807, while that of Mr. Alexan
der was 7,300. M. Grady's vote
shows his great strength with
the people. There is not a
more popular Democrat in the
State, nor a better man, than
the Hon. A. S. Merrimon, Chief
Justice of the Supreme Court.
In every county of the Third
District Mr. Grady ran ahead of
Judge Merrimon. Not only did
he poll the full Democratic
strength - of his district, but
quits a number of republicans
of the various counties also
votd for him. The result
show? that he is popular with
all classes, color.-1, and condi
tions of the people of his di-
trict, and that tlie cnnvetioiiJanco and prejudice of the mas
that nominated him at Clinton,
acted wisely and well. As he
was a stranger to most of the
people of the district, curiosity
was stirred as to what sort of a
man he was. His intercourse
with the people and his speech
es in the various counties have
given abundant. satisfaction and
gratification lo his friends and
his party in and out of the dis
trict. Hrt won golden opinions
wherever he went and spoke.
His speechei we:e judicious,
impressive and able. While
there are not in them many of
the flowers of rhetoric or -any
of the brilliancy rf tho orator,
they possess the highest chara
cter of being forcible, logical
and statesman like. Mr. Grady
though a new man, has con
vinced the people that he is a
man of no little originality, of
fine powers of investigation and
of superior intellectual endow
ments. He made an excellent
record, and avo a high chara
cter, to his successful canvass.!
in the late campaign. M dest' red ciay sub soil as is the case
