I Prom Our Own Carresoondezd.] WsssHoTOt, December 5, 1666. Congress Is already voted a bore by the sight-seers of the city, though It is but three days In its session. There was a great crowd in attendance on Monday; but to-day scarcely three hundred persons, all told, were in the gallaries. Yet It would he wrong to argue from these facta that no Interest Is felt In its work. The proceedings of Monday and Tuesday were of unmistakable significance. They showed, first of all, that there haa been an

election since the adjournment in July—a contest of remarkable vigor and earnestness, in which the moral and Intellectual force of parties, not less than the power of numbers, was notched. For a campaign in which only questions of bank and tariff and boundary were at Issue, could never have home such fruit of bills and resolves as appears in the Globe of yesterday and to-day. Congressmen are very human, after all; and I have som*. limes thought that A Record lathe cljjef «nd J of many men who get Into the lower house. Doubtless, therefore, something of this mass of twenty* long columns maybe counted as chaff—may he looked upon as an entry upon the credit side Of the books kept with the dear people of "my district.’? Tetwben this Is granted there still remains what may well make us, the plain people, very proud of oar Government —not of the administration, but of oar dem.- ocrallc republicanism. For we are the sov ereigns and these Congressmen are only oar servants. Because we fought this Just-closcd battle on Issues of principle rather than on questions ol policy, tney begin their winter’s work with words and acts that must give thought to European students of political economy. It was the voice of the people that has been caught into the pages of the Globe. Consider what halting rin ineffi cient phrases and mountings lumbered them In June and July. So doing, yon cannot fail to note that there has been an electioneering campaign of unexampled jqoral earnestness. The men who moke Congressmen and Presi dents have declared that they yet hold, »nd mean strenuously to exercise, the power of unmaking them. They have further declar ed that this late four-years* war was no pa. 1 litical tournament, bat, rather, a strag gle of profuundest moment to the very souls of men and women. And tho real language of these forty bills and sets of resolutions that neither President nor Congress shall fritter away the victory sealed at Appomatoz Court House, in April, 1805. It la,*thercforc, because the proceedings of Monday and Tuesday were of such plain and solemn Import, that mere pleasure-seekers have so soon grown tired of Congress. Later In the session will come eloquence and Wrangling—just now there Is no room lor anything but the nnadoraedSind direct utterance of jvhat the people think and believe. Reading the reports of these drat three days, one can’t help seeing what Radicalism lies behind the tremendous majorities of Masaachusctts,and Now York State,and Ohio and minoU,and lowa, and Michigan. “Tour folks seem to hare done nothing since 'lection bnt draw np bills and resolutions," said an Opposition representative to me this after noon. "They appear to hare done some th:ng in that line," I answered; "how does the work strike ‘‘Yon havogrown "so Radical that If wc take the ground you "occupied generally last season, the two “ parties will not be further apart than they “then were." It was sober Democratic judgment of oar progress hi three or four months. Individual* always move Cuter, than masses \ and therefore it will doobtkiMie fraud, before the end of the session is reached, that Congrc.-s, as a body, is not prepared to advance to the ground taken In a majority of these two-score hills and re solves. Yet some things are certain. “Wc are going to draw the President's teeth, any how," said an Indlanlan sententious!/, when I asked him, In a careless way. what Con gress would do this winter. Of so ranch he and his friends may at least be sure—by the end of Feb ruary be will find himself most cleverly “cribbed, cablnned, and confined." Jnst bow this will be done it Is too early to predict; hat if there is any thing certain. It is that Andrew Johnson will have ranch less power next March than he' bos got now. There is, of coarse, some sore ness In tbe Congressional heart because he has slaughtered so many of tbe Innocents In the persons of postmasters and revenue offi cers ; bat over and above this is a most profound conviction that be la guilty of gross violations of the spirit of the law and the Constitution tn other matters as well as In respect to bis manner of using the public patronage. When such men as Gov ernor Boatwell and Representative iforrifl and Judge Harris, and Judge Spalding, and Governor Morehead, and lowa Wilson, and our own Wasbburnc, and John Sherman, ad mit the necessity of a formal Inquiry into the President’s conduct since lost Jane, It Is evi dent that tbe situation is full of grave import. If Abraham Lincoln was. as I think, right ly called the Teachable President, Andrew Johnson may Justly be called the Unteacb ablc President. Tbe elections seem n»t to have been heard of in the office of the White House. The annual message Is moderate in language, and supplicatory In tone, but Its essence and substance arc Jnst as anti-Rc pnbllcan as the vetoes of last spring and tbe speech of last summer. The substance is Mr. Johnson’s—tbe tone is Hr. Stanberry'e, and Mr. Browning’s, and Mr. Seward’s, mainly Mr. Stanberry’s. The President appears wholly oblivions of the fact that his odious treason-petting policy has been condemned by aealy a half million majority : and ho “ swings round the clrcU ’’ of his Southern sophistries in the usual manner. The Attorney General has heard of the elections, and knows that somebody has said something about an Impeachment of the Executive— hence tbe body so lately “lounging on tbe verge of the Government” is ban-'--_ . spofcw of u "tho r Co?reM ... sna hcu( J such Ml cxcew of piety .1 Uio btßialng »od at the end; such a cooing word for harmony between the co-ordinate branches of the Government, such a mUk-and-watcry spirit where erst was each angry and malicious declamation. ' JEFFERSON DAVIS. Another Tftait to the Prisoner—HU Health* Appeftanee, Ac.

He was evident* lj just about to take a stroll, bat insisted on our remaining, and ushered ns Into the sit ting room. Here we found Mrs. Davis and her youngest child, a fair little bW, with bright bine eyes. tFe were innncdJalelr im pressed with tbe fact that oar host had been terloutly enfeebled by sickness, and even then tbe peculiar softness of tbe convalescent’s air was plainly apparent. He was dressed in black clotl.abd at the moment, with his hs and slick in hand* looked like some nuiet gentleman farmer, and, by no means like the chief of a people that "has made the ace hcrßTc.” His high, broad forehead I? deeply wrimtled, but It Is principally in the lover part of his face that the Hum of care are furrowed. He has permitted his beard to crow, and this hides his emaciation , in some degree* bnt the hollow cheeks, and pinched, drawn features, Indicate very wrongly the suffering he has undertone. The upper portion of his head seems unnat urally large, in contrast with his small fea tures and snare face. His hair, of a light iron-grey, with white spots here and there, is full at the rides and bnt slightly thinned at tbe top. Hia beard* of the same color, makes the most decided change in his ap pearance, hut Us eyes recall, unmistakably the old fire and vigor which shone In former day*. 'Sometimes ha appears listless and absorbed, as If long etude or thought bad left their effects upon his ptytigiu. fiat his attention is no sooner ex cited than one Is undeceived in that opinion and the brightness of his perceptive faculties U accompanied by an entrain and suavity which makes the conversation glide along agreeably. Mr. Davis retains much of his military presence* and the square shoulders and sinewy 4nmt give proof of a n hvtiave that was trained in a martial school, there i? *llll. however, a tremulousaes* lab's man ner resulting from nervous excitement, which would lead a casual observer to the opinion that Mr. Davis possessed a weak ornniza tlon. His wiry, muscular frame easily dis- proves this assumption, and dnrine tho man acllne scene we are a&sared that he gave such proou of his natnial strength as will long be remembered by the soldier on whom it was cxcrtlW. |Tbe character of Mr. Davis’ mind is; to some extent, a reflex of his physical organization. His fondness for sporting, his observation of external-thlngs, and h!a keen appreciation of the outer world are combined with thepos wfslon of brilliant lacnllles of mind. His rural life baa, doubtless, enabled aim to fos ter that muscular power wHeh keeps us In sympathetic contact with practical life, and to combine sturdiness of bodv with clearness of intellect. Men of thought and books have generally very little appreciation of things earthy; but Sir. Davis has succeeded in uniting with this healthy philosophy the highest intellectual development. On this - account there are few persons whom he falls to interest, and few whom hts gentle and .««*• manners fall to captivate. TEE PRISONER'S EOIO. There Is a round table in the centre of the room, and a large sofa stands near It. At night these pieces of furniture are wheeled together, and, after a long day's conrersa lion with visitors, the prisoner gladly re clines to read and do good tngntol work. Tin, til long past midnight. A row of shelves In the opposite comer of the room contains the material with which the prUder occupies bis active mind. The devotional spirit that characterizes both Mr. Davis and hlsWfclj manifested In the religions prints that deco rate the walls of the apartment. The young est child U generally seated near her parents, and la the obJ£Bt of tender attention, evinc ing the kindest feelings of the do mestlc circle.' Bqreral times our* atten tion has been attracted to a glass p*n/»l in the door leading to the adjoining room, and we could not imagine for what par ptoe it was Intended. Snhseqnentlv when wc moved to the next apartment, now used for a dining-room. Ur. Davis explained to ns the , purpose for which this glass was intended. Dnnng many months of his confinement, a : sentinel was always stationed at this glass, to give the earliest alarm of any attempt of the prisoner to commit suicide. *’ For months,” says Mr. Davis, “this small room was niT prison.” These are the apartments descrilxaXj Dr. Crartn, and this one Is now used for the prisoner's family dining room. Tt is even more plainly furnished than the parlor, having a deal tabic in the centre and a few chairs around it. There is rather a : cheerless aspect about the apartments, not produced by the want of absolute comforts, not by the absence of those petty, luxuries that contribute to the charm of a home. THE PRISONER’S OPINION OF HIS HEALTH. Mr. Davis complains very little of hia ill ness. Hot being able to attribute bis feeble neas to any local disease, his replies to in quirks about his condition would lead one to suppose that his health was not Impaired. He walks on the parapet every day after breakfast and endeavors to counteract his physical-lassitude by a cheerfulness of man ner. His habit of smoking, to which he is vtry much addicted, is considered somewhat injurious by the physicians, but to prohibit its indulgence would be a severe deprivation for him. Mr. Davis does not think that Fortress Monroe U a healthy location In antuiuD, the malarious diseases at that sea son being very prevalent and dangerous. Mrs. Davis has suffered from chills and fever this season, for the first time in filtcen years, and five officers have lately died at the Fort ress of the same malady.

The first breath of Winter reminds tbe manager ot the Central Skating park that thankful acknowieag meal* are dne to the numerous patrons and fneuib whose encouragement, during seven couiectnJvo seasons, has made it the mm popular, the most t*»h lonabie, and—as its lady frtesos declare—the ravox* pr» Skatixo Pa*k or nix Cirr. That it U Indeed the most popular resort of the steel- Clads. Is attested by the lame attendance during past seasons: the character of me attenoanee quite as fully sotstantlsics 1U claim to thsbtonsble precedence: and Us large proportion of lady paeons Icares nodoubl as to Its being their favorite Park. In announcing a Prospectus tor tbe Eighth Season, the manager begs leave tossy that be has, at tbe ear nest soLidtatloo Gf many friends, abandoned his Snten- Uoo'tf dliposl&g Of bis tnurest in tbe Central and has refused various ofiers to that effect, some of which, la a pecuniary view, were highly advantageous. In tons yielding to the wishes of meals to whose encourage ment In the past Ue owes so much, be confidently relies upon a continuance of their favors, while he pledges himself to exceed their antlcipsUons la tha enterprise, care aad attention that shatl be developed In the mime. In securing tbe services of Mr. Albert Banks, as Su perintendent, together with a full corps of attendants, the manager believes that every thing which personal dire and vigilant supervision can accomplish will be guaranteed. ft la aot necessary Co state, what everybody knows, that tee buildings connected with the Central are Urn ftnrst of (be kind in Chicago, and an famished la a style oUlegaiiCc never equalled In any Skating Park In America. The Ladlta' Boom Is a pertect gtai, a boudoir, where none out ladles and their escort are admitted. TLc Park will be brilliantly Illuminated throughout the season, and Carnivals and Social Ko unioD* will be a marked ftafnre of the Printer's sports. T&e tnanacer believes thst tt Is unnecesssry to argue cpt n the heaithtui effuets cl open air skaUug. when It t> so appsrest to all. Tbe doubting stepocs are Invited to drop In at the Central and obaerve tar themselves how besBST Bpoh Lteib dsmnc over the ley mirror, Eurtags, raptures, gathers and veart the roses that loom only in Winter, and that nay uvtr be plucked but lor the glowing cheek cf tbe steel-clad. ♦ CARYL YOCNO.
