The Republican opposition, led hr Mr. Bingham, made a furious onslaught on the bill, urging that ’be Bialne amendment ahould be added, providing that each State might be ad mitted on Tatliylbg the Constitutional Amend ment, and with a proviso for suSrsge, which, how ever. would be inoperative till the present rebels have reorganised the States and nxed themselves firmly tn power. The fight was, to a great extent, against Stevens a-leader, and those leading it were utterly de feated. rhe Blaine amendment was repudiated bySGtoTG, many Democrats voting tor It. The filial vole secured nearly the entire party strength. The Benoblicsns voting “no” were: Banks, I)avi«, Bodge, and Raymond, of New York. TbrU'l passed by 109 to 55.

In which the velocity of ' rnrrcnt will be one mile an bonr. affording a large I water power, which could only be counteracted I by the passage of twenty-four boats through the I canal each hour. The Upper Kapids on the con- I traiy. has deep water comparatively, andean be I improved by cutting out lee ralural channel, in 1 doing which the largest excavation would be at the Moline Chain, when would occur th» phe nomena of rather retarding than increasing tne volume of water, at the same time that the channel would be widened, because the inclined plane would be extended and the rapidity of the current would be lessened. These positions were sustained by a minute statement of the survevs, In the course of which Mr. A. stated the cost of w ork at the Upper Kapids at atd making the improvement I there, as suggested, and not by canal, f375,(XX) wonli l*e saved, which would nearly defray the I eon of constructing a canal at the Lower Kaplda, I where inch improvement Is absolutely accessary.

U>* took cronnd that all classes who expected benefit from legislative action should have a voice in making ttaetaw. He claimed that manhood has a right to suffrage, sot a permission, and itwaanot Jnrtto exclude cue section of the conntry from voting. Education vraa; the watchword for tbo safety of the ballot-box. It wai not dangerous to allow tgnoiant men to vole. Hof. JVnjre itself was a powerful educator. The rudest uncombed man id New York would know in or.e year, by education, tbo dlSbrcnce be tween a vole and a club. The second year hr would obieive the Influence cf party; tbo third be would vote more Intelligently; tbo fourth bo would know tbo for a candidate, and the fifth ho would vote as welt any one. Tbo speaker advocated woman suffrage, be* cause through her Influence a higher standard of men In office would bo secnird. Woman's sphere w*a something mure than to remain at homo and darn stocklrgn tad sow on shirt buttons. Ho also stulalncd bis views on Scripture authority, saying the Now Testament contained nothing intimating the locutullty of sexes. He did nut ask that a woman should undertake to bo a mao, bul that she should bring Into the nation’s affaire tbe Influence of her nature, that which she carried to church and to camp. Homeorjocltoo had been made that a woman would vole at did her husband and ncnlrallr.e the effect, nr that sha would t ok the opposite, so •« lo make discord to the Umlly, hut he said It would he the same In politics as In rrltgion.

II woman bad a a rcrctnlard right to Inflii-tico bar husband nod sons as to tint manner In which they should vote, she also bad • tight lo rote herself. Human society no-Ued lint eaertlvo poser ol woman. mid no would out it upon ilmtr enn* sclrnros to use every possible effort lo ame.lorale Ihc condition of tint pour, Iho downtrodden and the ignorant. II« did not believe woman should light tweauaa she voted. All meu who vole did not light; hie If women rotibl fight better than mm, then let them go It, On an usiago, her bead was stronger ihan i man’s. A writer slates lit it the family is tits unit. It was su in olden limes, but cow the in* (ilvidua) is the unit of the fatally. Ha did not wonder that woman had raid she did not want to vote, because she had not been educated to take a part in national affairs; but the dar Is not far dla tent when a reformation would lake place. , Hr. Uoecber walled lor the day lor woman to vote, because then be coaid vole lor once in a dec n( place. The moment she trave her Influence to the ballot-box a wide and a groat change would be felt, not only in politics, but in morals through out the laud. He concluded by urging Mb fair hearer* to take upon themselves the task of bringing ahont the cleaned mult.

He was not considered a vicious boy. He remained about Middletown until ho reached man hood. On the acquisition of California, about 1&19. he went out with thb coast sur vey as chain-bearer, etc., and remained there several years. After, hia return from Califor nia be married Miss Douglass, and ac-, qnlring some land by the marriage, he set tied down and went to farming, at which he continued up to the time of his arrest. He was not accounted a vicious or dangerous man by bis neighbors, although ho was not very well liked. He was very fond of brag-“ cine of the bloody scenes be professed to have witnessed in California. It was a mat ter of common report that he and his wife lived together very unhappily, and he hadat several limes beaten her. , He was very quiet and orderly while in prison, freely conversing with all who gained admission to him. and frequently adm tted that he killed hls-wilo, though he Insisted that he did U In the heat of passion, after she had already attacked him with a hatchet. Hla version of the affair was that his wife attacked him with a hatchet when he was entering thr room; that she struck him on the bead with the pole of the weapon, and then at tempted to strike him with the edge; that he warded otf the blow, and In a rage wrested the weapon from her and struck her the blow which killed her, and then, fright ened at what he had done, he burled her In the pig-pen to conceal his crime. This statement Is not consistent with the evi dence, as nothing was more clearly proven than that the blow was struck when the woman’s back was turned towards him. From the character of the wound It could not have been otherwise. Ycsteiday he had his last Interview with bis two eldest sons, boys of about twelve or fourteen gears of age. Both were witnesses All the preparations for the execution were made by about II o’clock, and a few minutes after the - doors of the hall of the Sheriffs house {were thrown open and the crowd was admitted into the jail and throngh the corridor of that building to the yard. Between twelve hun dred and thirteen hundred people were ad milled. As they passed directly under the door of tie pileoncr’e cell, he could hear the tramp and thulllc of their feet dlatlnctly for nearly an hour before hla execution. The reather vras as riCrt'OiT as the character of the doty to be performed by the officers of lb? iSr. The rain fell steadily, and the cert, thonch partially coTered with rouprh hoards, waa tramped with mud. A few minutes after twelve o’clock the Sheriff; accompanied by a jailer, entered the cell of the prisoner, and placed the hand cuffs on his wrists. This occupied some three minutes, and the moumlblprocession of death left the cell, on Us way to the , fatal platform. ~. . , . On arriving at the scaffold the whole party , ascended, and the prisoner moved forward i to the centre of the group, the Sberitr landing at his left, and the Kev. Mr. George on his right. The latter then read the flfty-flist Psalm. In a solemn and impressive manner,’and followed it wun a short prayer. Daring this time Armstrong «tood quiet end unmoved, looking down, and giving no outward manifestation of emotion. The opportunity was then given him to make «&y remarks he might desire, but he was found to be too weak to do so. He whis pered a moment to Mr. George, then stepped forward and stated that the prisoner nfehtdblmtos&y he forgave all men, and hoped all would forgive him. Mr. George then descended from the platform. The sheriff and Jailer then stepped ™r ward and adjusted the rope about the pris oner's neck, an operation which occnnita -some time. At this time, during the terri ble suspense that was natural to the occa sion. the nilsoner showed the first signs of emotion, trembling violently, his legs shak ing beneath him like an aspen. The shenff placed the white cap on his head and drew u down, covering his lace. He seemed here u> hesitate and draw back from his fate, and, apparently desirous to Steal yet a. few mo ments from the greet world of etern^. leaned over and whispered to the Sheriff. This occu pied perhaps half a minute, though to the anxious spectators It seemed a lone time. The jailer then guided him forward on to the drop, and retired, leaving him standing there. There was scarcely an Instant of pause, when the sheriff struck the rope with ms hatchet, and the prisoner fell q uiy "l n s J D *° the »lr a distance of five feet. The turned around slowly, backward and for ward, as the rope twisted or nntwuted, bn * there was not lbs least sign of life. 2<ot a muscle seemed to move or a nerve to quiver. His neck waa doubtless instantly broken, ard at twenty-one minutes past 1- o clock. Andrew Peter Armstrong was dead, accord- five minutes before one Dr Ferris, the iall physician, announced that life was ex tinct, aid the remains were lowered Into a handsome cherry coffin, placed Directly un it Is generally rumored that he left a writ- ten conftvtdon, bat this Is not the case. He has at no \‘ime denied the murder, but np to the time of the execution he persisted in tbo statement recited above, and persistently de nied burying the clothes. HU whispers to tbo sheritf on tbo scaffold, were to the effect that he wished It to he understood that he did not deny the murder, bat that thero were circumstances connected with It which no one living would ever know, but were known only to himself and bis God.

In a few momenta an Indian with flying leathers, followed by two others, made his appearance on the ridge, end raised the whoop, charging right and tell. Captain Perry ordered a portion of the men to go book down the ravine and hurry up tho horses,, and with the remainder charged the ridge-ou foot in order to cover the movement of the- horses.

Enterprise, Feb- I roary lUt.J Last Wednesday evening there was a , dramatic performance given at Bellevue ] Hull, by the German Amateur Company of this city. In which the celebrated German actor Schoen, from Toledo, sustained the cuaracter of “Perclval” In the thrilling drama of “Grlseldls,” and Mrs. Gnhlen, of Cincinnati, personated “Grlseldls.” The dot of the play U laid in Scotland, n its earliest days, and daring the reign of King Athos. Perclval was a Scottish noble, and it appears while hunting near the castle he met the fair Grlseldis, a poor coal banter’s daughter, and becoming enamored of her married her. Years after, at a grand tete at which the Qncen Genevra was pres ent, she rated Perclval for having married a low born girl and asserted that such a wo man would not prove constant to her hus band. A wager that ho or she who should lose should kneel at the feet of the woman was made by thcQueen, that the wife would prove faithless and Inconstant in adversity and temptation, and accepted by Perclval. The wife was sorely tried and tempted, her child was taken from her, her husband condemned, to be executed, ana herself treated with dis respect and scorn. Through all these trials the wiffe bore up proudly, always manifest ing unbounded love ana confidence in her husband, until at last the Quocn scknowl edged she was in fault, and proclaimed that Perclval bad won the wager. When it was known to the wife that her husband was privy to the persecutions and an accomplice of the Qncen, her love changed to dislike, and they were estranged forever. The play was very infecting, and many eyes were .wet in the audience at the conclusion of the play. Among those present was one newly made wile; she was perceptibly af fected at the performance, and remained weeping in her scat after a greater portion of the audience had gone. Whether the In cidents portrayed in the drama were proto types of her own sufferings, cannot be told, hot certain It is that when she was taken home reason had forsaken her, and she talk ed incoherently of her past life, of her first husband and adopted child, together with the “Perclval” and “Grlseldis” of the drama. Several physicians have visited her, but ■ shake their heads thoughtfully as they pro nounce it Insanity. ... , The woman’s history Is well known In this city. For a number of years she has lived here as the wife of one of our German citi zens, hut some weeks since a separation was : eifcctcd, and about two weeks since she mar* rlcd another man. The poor woman is thoroughly crazed; she will attend to none of her usual duties, nor even to her own comfort. The sad story of Griscldls, and the cruelty of I’ercival, as she saw them on the mimic stage, have apparently entirely driven away her reason. 1 man Smoihercd to Dentil In a Snow Drift. I t-!g Bine Correspondence of the Nebraska City News.) -- Some persons living on the West Fork of Iht Big Bine, residing In a temporary dug out, forthe pnrposeoftrapping, wcrccaugbt in the snow-storm of the 231 h ult. Their dug-ont being on the south side of a high bark, the snow drifted on to U very fast ; when one of them, by the name of G. J. Pariah, proposed to go to a neighbor’s house. The other said that if they left, they would freeze to death, and he woald sooner stay where he was. Parish sold ho would run the rLk, us the Umber over their heads was bending ;«ndcr the weight ot snow, and be thought it was certain death to remain. The other, Lewis Wanes by name, said he had been In the service of the United States for three veara, and In some hard fought battles; but he never felt himself In so much dancer. With that Parish and his wife started off and left Warren there alorie, preparing for a smoke. They started in a southeast coarse, and bv keeping on the Ice they managed to get to*the bouse of Samuel Englchaufl. This was about ten o’clock In the morning of the 2T)th of January. On the 2olb. Parish went hack to sec about his horses, which he had left In the woods, lie went to the bouse and It «as cnlUely covered with snow; he called several times and got no answer; he had nothing to dig with. He then went to the honse of J. R. Johnson, a distance of four miles, for shovels and help: they got back to the dng-ont abont one o’clock p. m., ana dag down several feet and they came to the roof, when they made a bole large enough to admit a man s body, and two of them crowded In. They found Warren lying on the bed ap rarently asleep; bat on speaking to him he did not move. They then picked him up and carried birn to the hole, and passed him through to the man on the outside, where they ascertained that he was dead. There were two voung dogs in with him. One of them the other was not able to stand up when taken ont. The Double murder In Maine, [Uwi;toa (Me.) Despatch (Febrnary 9) to the New York World.) In reference to the Aubnrn murder the ne ero asserts that he did rot think the murder was contemplated, and consequently he ■went to the house unarmed, while bis accomplice first seized Mrs. Kinsley and demanded where the money was, when she screamed for Mrs. Caswell. The accomplice then struck Mrs. Kinsley with a chair. Mrs. well, on coming out of her room, was struct on the head with a hatchet by the accom ollcc, who then left her for dead, when both the murderers returned to Mrs. Kinsley s bedroom and searched for monev where she ndicated. hut found none. Mrs. Caswell had returned to consciousness and was attempt ing to reach her room when the uccto fo.- lowed her and killed her with a chair. In the meantime the accomplice had finished Mrs. Kinsley. They then tried to light a lamp, but failed, and. after further search, save up all hopes of finding any money and left. Vcrrlll, whom the negro charges with being the instigator of and accomplice In the crime, is In jail. Detectives arc understood to be at work on his case. Death of General J • C. Ltaman.
