Com. Amusing Scenes in the House. WASHINGTON, March of Miesouri, a dapper, boyish-looking little fellow, 18 brought in, attired faultlessly in full dress. He has evidently been pulled from the pleasures of social lite, and torn from dalliance at beauty's side. His appearance is greeted with a roar of laughter, and the House with difficulty quiete Itself enough to hear his excuse, and is evidently threefourthe minded not to excuse him, just for the tun of the thing.

Very demurely he begins, but he makes a ten-strike. It has been the height of my ambition. since I have been a member of this House, to catob the Speaker's eye," gays this struggling member, this is and the the first House time is I have instantly been agog; able "and 1t." That was all, but the House sees the point and roars. Frost's wit has saved him, and he is exeused. Steele, of North Carolina, a smooth-faced, bald-beaded, benevolent-looking old gentleman, with a pink complexion and a fringe of white hair, takes the Reading Clark's desk and recites Tom O'Shanter's ride as his ex cuBe.

It serves the purpose, for the House is in good humor, and excuses all who are brought in, including Goode, of Virginia, notwithstanding the fact that he gave as his excuse a belief that the House had sense enough to adjourn. A parrot took the witness stand in a London police court a fortnight ago. The bird was claimed by Mrs. Tanner, who said that It had escaped from its cage and been caught by Mr. Isaace, who refused to give it Mr.

isaacs admitted that he had caught the parrot, but disputed Mrs. Tanner's ownership. Mre. Tanner said the bird could pot talk much, but could say Mother quite plainly. Mr.

Isaace said it was in the habit of saying My, lord." The magistrate directed that the parrot should be kept for some hours to see if it verified either statement. During the afternoon the bird gave such satisfactory evidence in favor of Mrs. Tauner's statement that the magistrate said there was not the slightest doubt that it belonged to her. and he, therefore, ordered it to be restored to her.

One who looks too early for beautiful spring may get his eyes full of dust blown by a cold March wind. Stilted opera singers hold the mistaken idea that one must flat to be natural.

Keene, the grain speculator, will eventually get cornered in This wheat buy and buy." A dire calamity overtakes a man when he is obliged to see a barber in order to keep his whiskers black. When a man is beside himself he should be put in the hands of his friends. Old Probabilities is a great natural instructor. He is keeping the mornings cool. When an Indian woman appeals for charity she generally has a baby to back her.

A move to avoid payment of rent will be made in New York on the first of May. Boucicault is playing "Divorce." He ought to be ashamed of himself, old and baldheaded as he is, and with a family of grown up children. There are numerous things that the oldest inhabitant does not remember, and one is rain on Easter Sunday. A young man in a saloon where they play cards keeps himself very busy between draw poker and draw beer. If the father of his country were alive to-day he would find his child considerably grown since the days when he governed it, and more difficult to manage.

As soon as the color-blind pilots are all discharged, a man with a red nose can walk on the river banks without having the steamboats whistle at him. St. Paul commanded that all breth-. ren should be greeted with a holy kiss. In delivering a charge to a new pastor the word 66 brethren should be spoken in italics.

A man without ancestors is needed to go as Minister to the Court of St. James, so that he may not spend his time studying handbooks of peerage and becoming a snob. A parrot has been allowed to give evidence in an English police court. There is one advantage in employing such witnesses, and that is found in the fact that they cannot be bribed. P.S.

Gilmore is essentially a leader of brass. Looking down upon Theodore Thomas, late of Cincinnati, he says: "I care not who does the fidding for my country, so long as I write her anthems." The following is from the Lonisville Courder Journal: There are three sisters in Jessamine county--Martha, Mary and Margaret Deboe-wD0 were born to the same parents in the same hour, in the year 1827, they being now in their 59d year. Such has been the affection of these children for each other that they have gone but little into society, and have resolutely maintained a life of celibacy even unto this day. When just verging into womanhood their father (who is now dend) exacted from them. a vow never to marry and nover to separate until death.

And this promise they nave religionsly kept. A crowd of high girls in Harrisburg one day last week had a desire to make their clase-room smell as if a inan was around. To effect their object a package of cigarettes was purchard and a smoking congress instituted. The dootere were hastily called and worked all night, but nobody died. THE SPEAKER.

When the Speaker of the House was elected by an overwhelming vote of his colleagues, he was recommended, if we are not mistaken, by the unanimous voice of the city press. Many kind things were said of him, and many flattering praises were bestowed on his intelligence and capacity for public business. It is gratifying to note that Mr. Ogden has justified these praises, and fulfilled the anticipations which were formed of him at the time of his election. He has had no easy task.

At all times the duties of a presiding officer are hard and thankless, but they have been surrounded by peculiar difficulties at this session of the Legislature -the first under a new constitution which prescribes duties sometimes not very well defined, and frequently subiect to conflicting, interpretations. There have, too, been questions before the House which have given rise to heated controversy and even violent dispute, to quiet which without arousing resentment, or hazarding the charge of arbitrary ruling, required rare ability and perfect self-command. These qualities Mr. Ogden bas shown in the highest degree. We do not say that, in the judgment of the Picayune, his rulings, have always been correct.

There have been occasions on which the Picayune disagreed with him; but he has never, we believe, made a ruling in a purely arbitrary spirit, and, on examination we have always found that he had authority for his decisions. It is pleasant to know that the gentleman whom the Picayune, in common with its city contemporaries, supported for the dignified position which he now holds, has made so fair an impreesion, and has done such good service. TOPICS OF THE DAY. A tramp lately killed himself at Lancaster, becanse a magistrate refueed to send to prison. Boston culture is rot to be laughed at when it takes a practical turn.

A young Maine farmer not long since marr ed a girl from the 4bno well up in the 4 He didn't like it much at first when he found her neglecting the cows and pecking away at the rocke; but when she discovered gold and he was told that his farm was worth $50,000, he manifested a marked respect for blue stockings. Not many men would be grateful for the dangerous honor recently conferred upon Count Melikoff; but the Czar made him a speech upon the occasion of his appointment, which though it could not render him bullet-proof, must have put him upon his metal. "My dear General," said the Czar, "I am very sorry to offer you, in all probability, as a target for the Nihiliste. But as it is my duty to appoint to office the worthlest men, I cannot possibly spare you. Let us hope that the assassins will, continue to aim at me alone." Eugene Fairfax Williamson, the persecutor of Dr.

Dix, should be taught that there is a practical way of dealing with the nuisance known as practical joking, His unwarrantable behavlour toward a venerahle clergyman has not even the merit of originality. The trick was first played by Theodore Hook. in London; but he confined his attack to a single day, and he selected viotims whose profession did not a confer upon them that immunity from sport which a venerable and distinguished servant of the Church is entitled to. The pupils in the Boston public schools have just been examined with reference to color blindness. 14,469 male students were examined and 608 were color blind: but out of 13,358 female students? only 9 were color blind.

Nearly the same percentage was discovered by experiments in Europe, The question, therefore, suggests Itself whether the human male is by nature more defective in vision than his sister. It may be that the superiority of the girls is due to the fact that they are more thoroughly trained in the discrimination of colors. Physiciane and scientists, however, are of the opinion that color blindness is hereditary and cannot be cured. The following little story is taken from the N. Y.

Sun. Though it conveys a warning, we should say that there is inore point than moral to it: At a social game of poker a Virginia City merchant recently won an undeveloped gravel claim, near Nevada City, and was janghed at. He said, with some strong language, that he'd show 'em a trick or two. and after salting" his gravel bed with $500 worth of gold dust and small nuggers, induced Eastern capitalists to examine his rich claim. They did so, bought it of him for $2000, and in the first threa weeks took 88000 out of the claim.

Then the Virvinia City merchant was very much diegusted with himself. WEATHER FACTS. The Bignal Officer at this station reports a8 follows: Highest temperature in New Orleans on 8unday. aud the lowest during Sunday night. 550.

A Lieutenant and twelve men were killed and nineteen Sepoys wounded.

The enemy was repulsed. A Cabal dispatch states that the British Commissioa, at an interview with the chief Seidons, said there would be no permanent annexation and no restoration of the ex Ameer; Afghantetan would be separated into its old constitutional provinces, and the Government would be guided solely by the wishes of the people regardless of race. NEW YORK. NEW YORK, March -A special from London says the Pall Mall Gazette, in commenting on the appointment of commissionere in the Chinese treaty, says that it is a matter which no complication in Europe keep Englaud from closely watching. Americans threaten to become England's most formidable competitors in the far East.

The Gazette observes a growing Inolination in Asiatio countries to use America. which they do not fear, as a foil against Europe, which they fear exceedingly. very alight gain in the shape of a reciprocity treaty would give American trade a decided advantage in Chinesa ports.

Be then quarreled with Dixon, who knocked him down. Getting up, he walked towards the stove. grumbling, when Dixon hit him a second time, again knocking him down, causing him to fall on his head and breaking his neck. His body was then taken outside and placed against the house, where it was found by the sheriff. Dixon was arrested and lodged in jail this morhing.

He bears a bad reputation, having already served a term in prison. PANAMA. A Mysterious" U. 8. Surveying, Expedition -Correspondence Between the Secretary of State of Panama and the United States Consul.

A gentleman, who has just returned from Washington, was interrogated by a Picayune man as to the condition of morals at the seat of Government. He says there is a wost outrageous eystem of blackmatiing practiced there, and that numbers of men and women make it their special business to conspire against the peace and dignity of the honorable members of Congress. No legislator is safe from their machinations, and une unfortunate Senator, an ptrant for bigher office still, is said to have paid 84000 to a barpy to prevent a disclosure which would have rendered him an object of ridicule throughout the country. The woman, Jessie Raymond, who credited her child to the Senator from Georgia, has left for the South to look after anothar man who disputes the question of paternity. A Story by Capt.

Carter. -Nine Federals, in Sight of Their Army, Captured by Seven Confederates. Historical Society During the retreat of the Contederate army trem Kentucky, (Bragg's invasion,) in the fall of 1862, Col. Basil W. Dake's 18gtment of Morgan's Cavalry tras left by order of Gen.

Kirby Smith at Falmouth to guard the roeda and watch the approach of the Federals, then advancing in large numbers from Cincinnati. Ohio. into the State, the Covington and Georgetown tarnpike being theie centre Jive of march. When they bad reached point about one mile from Walton, Boone county, and camped for the night, Duke left Falmouth about midnight, and by a nard ride reached the turnpike, about equi-distant from Walton and the Federal encamp ment, just as day broke. The advance vidette here reported a Federal picket post of ten men in sight.

Thes3 were captured by a small force under Lient. Messic, going round and in their rear. Duke then ordered Sergeant Will Hays, of Covington, Kentucky, to select six men from the famous guard" and proceed down the pike, find the enemy, and ascertain his position and strength. Hays chose Ash Welsh, of Cynthiana, Joseph M. Jones, or Parie, Thomas Franks, of Holly Springs, Frank Riggs, Hoghes Conradt, and Chapin Bart ett, of Covington, and at once commenced the dangerous mission.

Each man felt the responsibility resting upon him and nerved himself for the worst. The turnpike here was remarkably crooked, and on one side was sheltered by thick growth of small trees, vines, and Weeds. Reaching point about a quarter of a mile from the starting place, and in rounding an abrupt turn in the road cur little squad found themselves plump into a picket stand of sixty-nine infantrymen. In a moment every man of both parties hie gun co*cked and leveled. The seven Confederates were all young and blooded.

and bad, under the lead of Morgan and Duke: faced many forms of danger, bnt ever before were the odds so great against tiem now, and their nettle was to be put to the highest test. With the eye of a soldir, each one realized the perilous position Le and his comrades occupied. Hays at once, in a ringing tone, demanded an immediate surrender, saying that a regiment of tour Morgan's cavalry Was pear ac hand it vas oue quarter of a mile distant), and that if a shut was fired not a Federal snouid alive. The officer- Lieutenant verved bewildered to think that seven men hould ride bold into eixts-blue of his inen und make such a de and especially when not more than 500 sards away the entire Federal army was drawn up as if ready to inarch, their gana and arms glistening in the bright October sun, thee just rising over toe eastern bi Is. Butthe manner in which the demand was made, the bearing of each of the (an federate each to sill lie man" at the word fire -together with the magical Hame of Morgan, combined to and did save th.

m. The uflicer at once surrendered his -word te Jones- -who happened to be imme diately in his tront with his gun drawn on tim-and Hays at once plaved the prisoners in position and ordered a douhle quick bank to The regiment. As the march began a Fed-taliniantey regiment was rapidly. advancing to tbe rescue of their pluket but a turn in the road hid them from view. and they did not follow farther.

The sight was a novel one, even for war times- -seven Confederates driving sixty-bine armed Federal before them as prisovers. Dute, with a company, was 600n met, coming to ascertain the situation of the little squad He was profuse in his compliments to his une for their achievement. The Federala were Michiganders, and the lieutenant's eeme was Clarke. In his history of Morgen and his Men Duke bitefly refers to the fair, but does not give the names of the participants. He uses this language: "This exploit wan, perhaps, never paralleled daring the war." The facts were reparted to Gen.

Morgan, and all of the seven- privates that time- were soon afterward commissioned as officers for gallantry." These gallant troopers deserve to have theirnames enrolled in the future history of the mighty struggle. J. H. CARTER, Late Captain in Morgan's Command.
