The Butler Bingham fight was renewed Id the Bouse to-day. Butler had prepared and distrib uted a pamphlet In which Bingham’s last speech, ns printed in the dobs, and as really delivered, appeared in parallel columns, tbo corrected speech being twice the length of the real one. Bntlcr criticised this action severely, and made another reference to Bingham’s connection with the bunatt case. For this latter, Butler is uni- Tersally coLdcmned. Bingham’s reply was very severe. The corrections made in faia printed speech were cot eucb as to justify the attacks of Bntler. and on the other hand the attack did not justify Bingham’s ail unions to bottles and spoons. Hereafter, whenever the regular order i« demand ed, a fight between these two gentlemen wiH be expected. nr« ADPTBIAH 308810*.

Charleston, March 26.—A maesmectiog to rat ify the Republican platform lately adopted oy the Union League, was held this atteinoon. Four or five bandied negroes, of both sexes and all ages, were present. Four white and several colored speakers delivered addresses of a radical charac ter. Among the white speakers were United amirs Marshal Epping, and Solon Robinson of the Ne*» York IriOune. ■Jbe meeting was followed by a negro torch light procession to-night. The negroes made sev eral attacks on the street care, ana took posses sion ol one of them. The cars ate now guarded by policemen. Considerable excitement prevails throcebout the city, and there are grave appre hensions ot further trouble. General Loncatrecris Views on Kecon- Ex-rcbcl General James Longetrcet bas written tbe following letter to the New Or leans Times on the political situation; New Orleans, March 18,15C7. Ir your paper ot yesterday yon have expressed a desire to bear the views of tevcrol gentlemen upon tbe political condition of the country. I fine my name mantloned among the bat. and pro ceed without hesitation to respond. As I have uever applied myself to politics. I cannot claim to speak to the wise statesmen of tbe country who arc devoting their energies to the solution of the problem which agitates the pub lic mind. 1 can only speak tbe plain, honest convictions of a soldier. It can hardly be necessary, at this late day. to enter Into a discussion of matters that are usually brought op in aicuing upon the proposed plan of recon structing the Government. Indeed, I think that msny of them arc not pertinent to the question, i be striking feature, and the one tbit our people should keep in view, is that'we areaconquercd people. Recognizing this fact lairly and (■qnarcly, there is but one course left for wise men to pursue, ana that is to accept the terms that are now ofiered ns by the conquerors. There can he no discredit to a conquered people for accepting the conditions offered by ibeir conquerors, nor u there any occasion for a feeling of humiliation. We made an honest, and I hope I may say a creditable fight, hut wo have lost. Let ns come forward, then, and accept the ends involved in the struggle. Onr . people earnestly desire that the Constitutional Government shall do re-established, and the only means to accom plish this is to comply with the requirements of the recent Congressional legislation. It Is said by some that Congress will not receive us even alter we have coruslied with tfcclr conditions, but 1 can find no sufficient reason for entertaining ibis proposition for a moment. I cannot admit that ihe representative men of a great nation could make such a pledge in had faith. Admit ting, however, that there is such a mental reserva tion, can that be any excuse for us In fauiugto discharge our duly f Let os accept the terms, as wc ate in dutv hound to do. and if there Is alack of coed faith let it be upon otheis. Very respectfully your obedient servant. Jakes Loxosthbet. municipal Nominations, [Special Despatch to tbe Chicago Tribune.] St. Louis. March SO.

A eiropg pressure is being brought to bear on the Governor lo commute the punishment of John Gindcl, under sentence of death in St. Clair County, to be banged on next Friday. The cir cumstances of the cose ore familiar to most of vonr readers. The condemned man is convicted of the prcmcdilaUd murder of a man named Zimmerman, ol Madison Comity, about a year ago. The Governor has fully examined the case, hut has not yet arrived at any determination. This locality was favored lastnigat with another storm of enow, sleet and rain, and to-day the condition of our streets, stdcwalts, £c.. Is bad bevond all comparison.

DmDßroe, in thU Company, means dividends made annually from the start, on the first and every subsequent premium; and not at Me expiration o/lfiree,/our or five years, and only them annually. Is also means that the dividends are avail able im mediately to increase the Insurance or as qua la redaction of tne premium ot the current year; and sot merely to canal nolet and accrued interat oa premiums three, four or ttve > ears old. By this system there Is no delay Jbr the redemption Of script, as in some companies. The Assets of this Company are purely Cash. Fa premium notes, railroad or bang stocks are included. They consist of bonds and mortgages in the State of Kew York, worth double the amount loaned, atfice real estate, bonds of thsState of New Tor*, and United States stocks. Particular attention is desired to the &ct that a very arge portion of the Company’s business is now on Bn doicmenlFoHdet. This Is a peculiar lea tore with Company, as no other companies ean present the rily we offer, or the profits which we are enabled to divide, so AS to make the investment a good one to the applicant; and the rates for such Policies are ftamll to 30 per cent lower than those charged by other and smaller Institutions.
