Mr. O'Neal retorted that xf the gentleman himself had not been connected with it he had been slandered In a wrangle which followed, Mr O'Neal, for some minutes, shonted agamstthe speaker's gavel, amid the confusion his words being en- tirely indistinguishable Finally the sergeant-at-arms came forward With his great mace and order was restored.
