Mr. Glingman, to-day, againtt an urgent and povrerfut appeal of the 'lemocrats, offered the plurality ru'o, a? 1 informed you he would, and af er an exciting strugg'e it was tabled. Four democrats who had promised to sm tain it. when the itsue came, caved In and voted sg*in.-d it. Mr. Banks will not with raw. His friend* are de'er mined he shall not.

MR. DALLAS GOES TO KNULAND? .VP FOINTMKNT OF OIIIBP OF THK BUREAU OF ORD NANCE AND HYDROGRAPHY, KTC. WASmtftnox, Jan. 30, I860. The plurality rule wis again offered to-day, an d cre ated a greet sensation in the House. Kvery member w an at his post. The House refused to table it by a tie vote. The main question was ordered by a majority of one. At this stage of the proceeding there was great ex citement in the galleries and on the floor. The paBBKge of the resolution was expected by all. The Americans were in a stew. The vote yesterday on the same resolu tion stood one hundred to one hundred and six. The main question was now put and the resolution defeated, by one hundred and six to one hundred and ten. The inciea>ed vote killed it, an! settles the question that Mr. Banls will not be the Speaker. 1 repeat th*t Mr. Becks will withdraw. Mr. Dallas, 1 learn, accepts the English mission. Greeley was in the lobby to day, as usual. Ihe democratic Senators all support Nicholson for printer, except Mason. His election to-morrow is eer tain. Cemmodore Smith received a commission from the Pte-ident to day as temporary Chief of the Bureau cf ordnance and Hydrography, vice Coramodoro Morris, deceased. Commander Dahlgreen, now in charge of ex perimental ordnance at Washington Navy Yard, will probably receive Ihe permanent appointment. His thorough knowledge of the subject and eminent quaM fications point to him aa the man. E. THK VOTE ON THE PLURALITY RULE. Washington, Jan. 30, 185S. tVheu the main question was ordered to day, on Mr. Ciiugman's plurality resolution, there was considerable applause from the galleries and some parts of the ttoor. The rumor aoon spread throughout the city that the House was on the eve of electing a Speaker, and general satisfaction was expressed. Tho joy, howevor, was turned to sadness by the announcement of the re sult of the vote. The resolution was voted for by Messrs. Clinaman, Hickman, Barclay, Herbert, and Kelly? demo cials? together with the]jrepublicang; but, was defeated by the votes of the democrats and Americans, joined by Messrs. Dunn, Scott, Harrison, Moore, Haven anl Wheeler ? impracticable* (usually styled.) with Mr. Campbell of Ohio. THE RENCONTRE BETWEEN MESSRS. OREELEY AND RUST, ETC). Wahiiinotox, Jan. 30, 1866. Mr. Ru -t says that when he first approached Mr. Gree ley, it was not his intention to assault him, and that he had told his iriends that he ehonld only remonstrate with him then; but when he inquired of Mr. Greoley, "Would you rest nt an insult!'" Mr. G. replied, "I don't know, sir," in such a tone that it provoked him to strike him. He also -ays that Mr. Greeley struck him in return. He sajs that Mr. Greeley, at the second meeting, added to the remark, that he believed it was Mr. Rust, "and you have treated noe very urgent'emanly." When Mr. I'.ust arain Inquired, " Aro you a non-combatant!1" Mr. Groe ley said, " I don't shelter myself under that plea;" but when he requested him to tight, Mr. Greeiey said that he hud nothlcg to fight with. Mr. CI legman's short speech, cn presenting his resold ti'in to-dny, was neat and lucid. Humphrey Marshal^ alone, by his tact and boidnts?, defea'/ed thi> mjvemeat. He has shown more zeal as a tactician than a ay other man this session. I). THIRTl'-FOVRTH GONBRE8S. FIRST SESSION. House of Representative*. Washington', Jan. 30, 18;"/t). Tire arKkKEBitmp. Mr. Chawfokd, (dem.) of Ga., offered a resolution to elect a Speaker by States, each State canting one rote. lie ?ald the House was absolutely bringing it sell into con tempt. There was lews anxiety on the part of the people relative to an organization now than there won four weeks ago. He appealed to State rights men to sustain the proposition. Mr. Todd, (black tep.) of Pa., remarked that the pro position i- repugnant to the constitution of the Home. Members are here to represent the people, aud not inde pendent sovereignties It would be unjust, because it would give the power to organize to the minority. If gentlemen were anxious to organize on the expressed wil1 of the people they should give way to the great majority. On motion of Mr. Todd, the resolution n< laid oa tUe table by a vote of 136 to 72. Mr. Cu>om.\n, (dem ) of N. C , offered a resolution to elect a Speaker by plurality vote, if co choice sh ill be made by the next three trials. He said if the resolution was adopted, the majority must concur in the election, it was necessary to organize, aud two months had boen spent in vain expedients 1o do so. It would devolve on tte An?'ic?a paity, upon the adoption of the resolution, to take tin ir choice between Mr. Orr and Mr. IUok*. Mr. Bfjihibt. (dem.) of Cal , earnestly appealed to gen t'emen entertaining conservative principles to oppose ilie e'ec'.ion of Mr. Banks, whom he regards 1 as the represen tative of that lanaticlsin which would destroy the vitality of the Cnion. Mr. Ijtti iiiji, f dem.) of Va., looking at the present s i ate of the political elements, could not recognize the principle which is calculated to place the South at a greater disadvantage than she now occupies. The result of the adoption of the resolution would be the election of Mr. Hanks. .Mr. Born-:, (dem.) of S. C., (opposing the resolution,) looked upon the clcc'.ion of Mr. Bank* a i one ot the great est mtafortucei that could bet'sll the country, on ac count of the political principles hold by Mr. Banks which, li carried out, would result in tho dca'h of the principles of the constitution and the revolution. He appealed to the democracy to pause before th?y assisted in tho olea tion of Mr. Banks. ?Mr. JiKNSCTT, (black rep.) of New York, thought the only fair way of effecting an organiz ition under present circumstance was by the plurality rulo. HrxriiBKY Marshall, (K. N.) of Ky , expected the di iuocratic party generally would vote against the reso lution, but that thore would he sufficient diversion in their ranks to effcet its adaption. The people would hold them to as much responsibility for it as they would the mat) who would throw a lightel squib In a powder house. Hr.GmratfooD, (dem.) of Ark., made a motion that the lesc lution be tabled. I<ost by a tie vote. Mr. Cltngman's plurality resolution was then rejected by lUfl against 110. Adjourned.

The de^se then refer* to the ?a?t that the a? cu?ed wan retiied from the uervic* wiiu no kaown "bant* against him. 1V< accused congratulates hinntetf that some ol the members of the pi eaent court we-? the a* temporal I Or of Decatur, and o;her of our country'. naval heroes. The accused stated his intention t? be perfects frank ard open in his remarxa, and not to conceal any thing relatirg to th- pri. ent charge, and par ioulatW that part of itieuticg t? the language used by tMa when overcome by the treachery of a pretended frieai. The charge againat acctiw d was then read, aad th* charge defli cd as urdersttKxJ by accused. The fact is. 'hat the cb'.rge is not lor ubi'jg certain language, but that in W&-hiagt'wi tli# accused tiaid that be had umA such laiguago. 'l"he singularity of the l.?ct that the chug* was not brought co the original oflence van then e*a ? meateden. uil tact that in common law all the ingra dleota of un otleuoe charged agaiout an individual mart be proved, wan stated, auri a number of authorities wer* releried to. The two material ingredients which eater in'o this offence were then taMn up. The first, that ha publicly applied certain epithets to Captain Dupoat, was examined and 'he fact denied. The accuitad denied that he ever publicly used the epithets charged, bat uDder circuntrtaaceb which c>uld not be called publsa. At the fame time the acouaed does not deny that he did . ffer the insult to Captaiu Dupout. Th* evidence o( Mr. 0 Etheriitge, (V plain UolCblHiro and Commander Jenkins wa ? then inmil to ahaw that the accused waa willing to rpeUt of iho difficulty between himself aad Captain Dupont, and th<- Insult offered by him, Captain B. In relation to Commander Jenkins' testimony, th* accused shewed the mini:).' iu which ho was praised by Corcituiider J. to say that he had insulted Captain Du pont. lathi re an;, country ia which word* thus ?x torted would b* regarded an evidence of a crime'' It will be rccollect*'! that it wax in the privacy of <Jke accused's own rr-oui that this confession was extor'ed. The accused n.id that he did not even lepeat to Cous nander J. (who was the ag"nt of, Captain Oupont) the epithfts applied to Captain D. by hin fu rumors ftxkea of a* Hyitg about Washington were thtn *p< ken of, aLd tha accused declared that he : >uM iiut be held tbnp^n.^ible for what ethers chose to <?ay.

The seooat 1 art oi the charge, that the action of the 'Retiring Board wh.' the pretext lor the iuaults to Capt.

The fact that Capt.

Thf 'o_rd ing' e-l.ent < f the cba'jfe, that the insult vended to txtag on a ciuarrel or a <Mitl, was then takna up.

Its sccrecy was ua Amfri can. The .icti m of the i':eeident of tue l:nite? Statea, Congre-s atid the couita of the country all bow to public opinion in this i .spect. bat wn are to auppoae that tha purity of the Retiring Board was aj immaculate that It ueed not be opfu to the public. Captain Duponl'a testi mony was next taten up, and both the testimony whloh *??< a> niitttd that which was excluded, and the Letter placid on rtcorii ly Captain D. weie subnutted to Ute clofest and mi nt searching examination. Mr, C-ioper then road an afhdavi: sworn to b?f*r* V'-^er Courad "it tlm 'ir>th iu?t., giving a detail of the version of Com. Ritchie a- to the interviews with Captala Ihi]<cnt and niuirtlf in 1 *1 i ac e'phia. The affidavit stated that during the spiio;' of J86.r) the deponent met Captala l>ii pout in the etteei in I'liiladelptia, and after caa vej-irg on vaiions .'ubjects they ?rere about parting, wlrn <iep< nmt saia to Captain Dupont that be thought ol paying a vi-it to Washington lor th* purpose of 1 -ijliig fcis lespects to the Secretary, and als ? ?pj)y for a roramaud. Deponent mentioned tbat he bad fce^n infurn.ed that officers were making ia (i inet as to his m >ial characer ami in reiaUoa to his health I apt. Pu pout laughingly replied that < eprr er,t nee-1 pay no aMe-iti'.n to suoh repDr>; that t>a i tllter in the rv.y ha< c'??arer -l?et. The next meet iKg iccnrrcd at the I a 1 ierre House, when t&e <?* I< uiul accidentally e.-'Coimterfed him. CapUin Da pen: approacted with bis ban.! extend? 1, whea the f ejsir ent refused to meet his advances, and atked wncther he retnemliered his assurances ef hi* pro?pects befoie tlie l!etiria|{ Bwi Capt Dupoal denied having made u?e of them, when strongly excite/ and Hmartin? under the indiguity put upon him by tba action <f the board, deponent applied the epithet* liar and coward. Captain Dupont lemarkel that the depo n? nt had still an honorab'e position beside Commodore Me wart on <ho ietired list, and then telling the depot eat that he had used ail the abuse in his power, advised him to go and tril the world. The deponent replied tbat the world knew him nlieady. The ceponent acknowledged that the word scoundrel waa not used on that oockidna. The defence then arpues that the omisaion ot Captain Dupont to mention in his letter the fact that tha epithet* had been u-<ed, and hii failure to deny their utterance until before the Court, accorded but little with the mea ty Iranknesa 11 -1. ally the characteristic otan rflicer. the charge that the defendant had publicly reported having applied the epithtts to Capt. Dupont was atiennotiaiy denifd, and much stress laid upon the failure to prov* this. In the Interview with Com. Jenkins, after several questions in relation to the matter in his own pi ivate chamber in a hotel, he had answered a simple ??Yea" to the interrogatory, and this was the only la stance proven la which the defendant had acknowledged making ua? of the epithets. The evidence waa also de fective in givioq neither time nor place for the pubiit dec aralion said to have been made; ana a* s peri fie 'acta :u e needed to warrant a conviction, the attempt must fall. T'ce defence proceed*! with the declaration thai th* case had been discussed wilb perfect lrauknesa and oaa i'.or on hia side, concealing nothing, and givirg no color net warranted by truth ; and with the asauranoe tbat tha prosecution had failed to prove the charge, he left hi* cause in tbctr hands, confident in the hope that the de claim would l>e favorable. He looked fir ward to that de cision with anxiety. He loved the aeivioe, and altera service of forty veata? a portion of which waa du ring it* days ol glory, when the names of Decatur, MoDonoogh, Hull and I'erry ornamented its annals ? he ooold not leok I'orwaid without emotim ta the merest chance of the last tte that bound him bting severed. Although ra movrd from the chance of active tervice by tho dec4?i*a of the N'aval Board, be still cheilahed ttie hope that >h; 11 Id the inline render hia services neceasary he night alill be allowed to take part in battling for hU coun try. The present accu>ation waa the only offenm tliat had been ever laid to bia chartre during tha whole courae cf his life. Careful of bia own honor, he lias never designedly injured any one, and only wh?a struck from hia |ioaition through hla own Inaotion, into which he ha^ been betrayed through the ailvioe *f a treacherous friend, did he apply the epithets so daaerv*d. This was done openly; and aabotn of us wore sworda, an ?PP**) to that waa the natural expectation, and not t* the rulea of the rervis*. In conclusion, the dtfeaoe ad vetted to the utter insufficiency of the evidence to Mb stantiate 'he charges, and with a firm trust the Juat4a? of the Court wculd exclude the portions before deoidea t* le inadmissible, he would await the declaloa with aa ar. ileus confidence. Altar concluding the reading of the defence, Mr. Coop er. th* counsel, remarked tbat he had not pleadad the waat 01 jutladii'tlon of the Court, on the constitutional ground that th* defendant was not on trial before hla peers, be having been retired from the aerrloe by tte Naval B< ard. while hia judges were all upon the retaia*d list . The Judge Advocate stated that a provision in th* law bad picvioed that the retired officers should rtlll t? amenable to its rule* and regulations. After a rerens taken by the Court, the .lodge Advocate a>krd permission to have until to-morrow at 11 o'oloek to prepare hia reply to th* argument of the aoauaM. Thte being unasual In naval courts martial, Commodore Maya expressed aa unwillingness to go beyond former preoa its at a, aa th* permission ask*d for would warrant tha ac cused la asking permission to respond. The Court waa cleared for consultation, and on re-aa M-mbllng the accused was lafbrmed that the permiaatoa to reply had been givfn to the Judge Advoeate, aad tha Court thea adjourned to aieet again this morning.
