UKE A POLITICAL CONV ENT IOX. I Tile Ameri«*an house of representatives has lie*-ii during all so far as rules for cerned, iii pns isely the same condition as a I Dipolar meeting or a politii*al ixsivention, in w hich the chairman ami hrs partisans ate solidity control all tbs pr*ss*e*l»ng». No measure can get bef*se tlw* house f«»r consideration unless the speaker chooses to allow it to lie presented, ami members have Bo in<«ns of knowing in advance what they are to be tailed uj***n to dist-ure or «le**ide. This is the first time in our history that a legislative assembly, or even a public meeting. lias attempted to transact business for any contd!Arabia period w ithout a regular code of rules prescribing the order of its proceedings. ami the inconvenience and the injustice resulting from such an attempt have lieen forcibly illustrated in the present in-stan**e The speaker has repeatedly during these extra* *n ii nary pniceedmgs refused to entertain iiarliamentary motions that have been rwi'ugiiized as legitimate ever sin*« the government was established, and when at teliqitN have lieen made to ap|teal from his decisions he has refused to submit tile question to th** house. By his arbitrary rulings, unstained iii some instances by less than a quorum, be has subverted every principle of constitutional anil {xirlmmentary law heretofore re«*ognized in the house. This personal aud (artisan domination of the bouse w as submitted to, though not w about rejsxited protests, until we liecame convinced that it was the delilierate purjMise of tis* shaker and his su(*[s>rters to pr*w*eed without rules to *Mist the Democratic member* wh«>ie wats are contested and admit their Republican ojiponents, whether Mecte*i or nut DETERMINED TO STOP PROCEEDINGS. On Wednesday, Jan. ^9, the committee on el*s*tions calksi up a contested election case, and the I HS nor ratio memliers determined that in the alweiice of rules it should not be considered if they could ’prevent it by any proper (tarliamentary proceedings. Accordingly they raised the question of consideration, demanded Ute yeas ami nays, and on the dill of the roll refrained from voting. The result was that leas than a constitutional quorum voted, but the speaker, in violation of the uniform practice of the house for more titan a <x»ntury. proceeded to count mein liers who wer* present, but not voting, an*! declared that the house had decided to take the aa.-** up. From this decision an appeal was taken, and on motion to lay this apjieal on the table the yeas and nays were taken, arni less than a quorum vote*!, but the spiker again counted nieinU*rs not voting anil derided that the motion was agree*! to and his ruling thereby sustained. The is Hist it ut i* ai of tin* United States provides that a majority of each house “shall constitute a quorum to do business; but a smaller untidier may iu!j*aim from day to «!ay. ami may lie authorised to compel ‘h*» attendance of alnent meniter* in such manner, ami limier such {A'nalties as each house may provide.” Another clause of tile »x*n. stitut ion requires e«**h housed* k«x*p a journal of its pr*x*e**dmg><. ■id (M-ovhlea that w hen one-tilth of the members (*n*si*nt »h*sire it. the y**as am! nays shall be taken oil any question ami entered rwi the journal. Since tile lie-gimiiug of tin* government under tile constitution. more than a hundred years ago, the house of repix*s»*ntatives an*! the senate have uniformly coukirued tile first clause of the constitution quote*l alcove to mean that a majority of all tile meinliers-eleet must tie pix'sent and a**tually jiarticq*ate in the tians-action of business, ami that w hcm-ver. upon a call of tile yea*, and nays it a(»(s*aixsl from tile journal, which is the only otlicial record, tiuit U*ss than the constitutional quorum hail v*»te*l on any prop*sition, th** vote was a nullity, ami no further business ixaiM I** done until the requisite number aji(*eftre*l and voted. A LONO UNK OF PRECEDENTS. Every presiding officer in the senate and •very speaker of the house, excejit tlw present one, has ruled that when less than a quorum voted on a call of the yeas ami nay*, no matter bow many might la* actually present, it was his duty to take maine of tile fai t and declare that the pending bill or motion ha* I not passe*!. When the vote is not taken by yens ami nays it is not entered ujion the journal, lait if any member makes the point that rn* quorum lias voted the pr*>cecdi!»g is a nullity ami tile vote must I* taken over. The pftwumption of the law is that when nothing app*ars to the contrary th** pnioeixl-ings of a legislative boily ere regular and valid, ami therefore when til® official record doe* not show that less than a quorum voted, or attention is not called to the fa«*t in such a way as to furnish legal evidence of it, th* qu**stion caqnot he matte afterwards. Many bills have lieen passed a lien there was no quorum voting, ami it is equally true that many have passed w hen there was no quorum actually present, but this does not prove that THE TEST-OATH CASE. Religion ! the proceeding would have been valid in either case if the official record had shown the fact. Iii order to secure certainty and stability in the administration of the law, it is a rule in our jurnprmleoee that when a particular ocnstrurtiwn of a constitution or a statute has been for a long time a*xpimaced to, not only by those w bose duty it ie to execute it, but also by tboee w hose (lersonal and property by it, the courts will recognize it as the true ex instruction, and enforce it a**eordingly. Even if this were an original question, it would not he difficult to show that the practical construction of the constitution which has prevailed in the house ami senate for over one hundred years is the correct one. Speaker Reed himself, when in the minority on tile fl*s»r of the house, stated the true meaning and the true philosophy of the constitution when besant: “The <*onxti-tntiooal idea of a quorum is not the presence of a majority of all the metnliersof the house, bul a majority of tile memliers present ami |Mtrti**)|M*tiiig iii the Iwisincss of the house. It is not their visible presence, but their judgment urn! votes, which the eonstitutkm calls for.” U BT THEY OBJECTED, (fen. Garfield, Mr. Blaine, Mr. Hawley, Mr. Cogger, Mr. Hoi**** rn ami ut lier eminent Republicans have taken tie* same pwittim ami their arguments have never lieen answered. If any leg^l or political quanting can la* settled iii this country by the long a*x)uiete cen<*e of jurists ami statesmen of all parties, certainly this question has pass.-*! beyond the Wlien, ?’ *refore, the (►resent speaker repudiat***! this settled *xj*i-xt met ion of the constitution, ami decidual that w Ikmi tin* official record w hich the constitution requires the hmise to keep, shows on a :*all of th.* y<«* and nays, tliat a quorum lias not voted, he can <xiunt members pnsent and not voting, ami thus by his own a**t, outside :>f the re* •* in bx I vote, determine that a measure has passed, we c* inside red it * mr duty, as * Isu*t ut tile representatives of the people, to i »nU*r our protests in every form available to A REPUBLICAN SEATED. THE REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON RULES ADOPTED. THE MINORITY NOT TRYING TO KULE. We are not contending for the right of the minority to govern as the siqqiorters of the Speakers have endeavored to make tile country l»elieve. On the contrary, we are denying the right of a minority to eject meddlers from their seats, or to pus* laws for the government of the |ieople. Umler the institution a majority of th** mein tiers of the house NHistitnte a quorum ti* do business. We are contending that the majority shall take tile r*w|*>nsibility w hh-h (iroperly tielongs to them this    time    an*l    still    is, j Sll,l sliall inurn to the h*»us*> of representative* it*    government are    con    sud v«*te if they desire lo control it* proceed- ami we mgs. ami we are protesting against their right to <*arry their measures by counting us when we do not vote. The claim of the majority that they have a right to govern the house without attending its session-, and taking (*«rt in the ix«tdm*t of it* business, is too pre|Ni*t«‘rous to require refutation. It must lie evident to any one who un* Ie rata mis the (Dsiition taken by the Democratic minority in the h*>use, that it cannot possibly result in an injury to the country, or in any injustice to the majority. It* only effect will lie to compel the Republican majority, elected by the |ieople, to assume the mqsMisibility iuqNiaed upon them. Oil the Other hand no one can for**see the evils that may result from the inauguration of the practice of *x>unting votes not cast in or*l**r to make a quorum. Under it a minority of the »i loin I vim* Ie* *t to the house anil senate may («-* the most tyrannical laws for Hie oppression of the |**ople, and the most corrupt law* for the xfmliation of the public treasury. Whether so ii item 1**1 or not it* direct tendency is ti* break down tile liarnera heretofore existing for the protection of the citizen against the encroachment* of power anil spoliation of the treasury by destroying th** limitations w hich the constitution has wisely itnpowxi u|*m the legislative detriment. Constitutions are made to restrain majorities and prole** minorities. A majority ruling w ithout limitations or restraints u(*>n it* (lower, is a pure despotism, and is inconsistent with tiur system of government. Cannat be Legally I od as a ( lunk for ('rime. Washington, Feb. 4. — In the supreme court of the United States yesterday Justice Field rendered an opinion affirming the judgment of the third judicial district court of Idaho in the ease of Samuel D. Davis against H. G. Reason, sheriff of Oneida county. The case is commonly kuowu as the biabo test-oeth case in which tile question involved was tin* constitutionality of the Edmunds test ♦aith requiring citizens of Idaho to make oath when they »pplv to register, that they are not bigamist* or polygamists; do not trach, a1 vise. or encourage bigamy or polygamy, and that they are not member* of any order which practice* or encourages such teachings. Davis was arrested ami convicted of unlawfully perverting the laws of the territory, by taking tile oath while a tneinlier of the Mormon church. Davis brought the «*ase to the supreme «x*urt on a writ. of lintN*as coiqms, claiming that the allegations did not constitute a public offense, and that the .statute pn'scribing the t<*t oath was a law respecting* religious establishment amt therefore un '.xMi-titiit tonal. Justin* Field, in his opinion, states that there can lie m» serious iliM*ust-i< >n or differ-emx*s *»f <»(iini<>!» as to the allegations «xmsti-lutingan offemx* of which the territorial iWIrt might take eogniaamx*. Bigamy and polygamy arx* crimea, la* holds, by tile laws of the Unite*I States ami of Idaho. To call their advocacy a tenet of religion is to offend th** common sense of mankind. The first amendment to the constitution, declaring that cxMigress shall make no law i-es|ie**tiiig tile establishment of religion or forbidding tile free exercise tliereof, was intended to allow every one to entertain such notions res|»ecting his relations to his Maker ami the duties they impose as may lie aj* proved by his judgment ami conscience ami to exhibit His sentiment* in such form as he may see pr«*|«er. The *x>urt *x»nclud**s:    “It    is assumed by oMiivs**! of Hie petitioner that I ss •mix** no mode of worship can be estat*li*h«xl or relig-i*His tenet* in force in this country, therefor**, any form of worship may be followed ami any tenets, however destructive of society, may be lichi ami adv*sated, if a**ert*d to lie a (art of Hie religious doctrine of those ad Vera ting ami practicing them. But nothing is further from the truth.

Washington. Feb. 4.—In the bouse vee terday there was a dis]site over the adoption of the journal. It was finally adopted by counting in Democrats w ho did not vote. The Smith-Jackson contested election case was then resume*!. Mr. Bynum of Indiana moved to adjourn, which was rejected—yeas nays 157. Mr. Crisp raised the question of consideration. Tile -.(leaker (lts'liiMsl to entertain it. Mr. Crisp a;i(*eal**l from this decision, and the speaker declined to entertain th*? apiwsd. Mr. O’Ferra 11 of Virginia was recognized ami restiukxi his argument in the contested election rase in sup|*>rt of the minority report. After arguing the case. Mr. O’Ferrall made allusion to the state of affairs existing iii the house. He did not believe, he said, the time had yet mine, aud God grant it might never crane, w hen the American j**ople would tolerate autocrat (Dover, w hether w added by the pres’./Jell t of the United States or tile s(s*akcr of the house of r**pr**s*iiU»tive*, or wlien the peof>|«* breathing the inspiring wntimeiit* of our fn*e institutions, which to-day ftlleil the eyes of all other nations of the world w ith envy, would wubniit all their interest* to the ha mis of one man, whose eye dictated the journals, whose will controlled legislation; ami whose gavel made one—supposed to I** a representative—silent and numb, when it was the sweet will of the one man that he should not lie beard. As for him ami his people, he probated against this usmqiation; against this outrage; against this violation of tile sa ere* I rights of the weak; against this cruel, wicked ami unconstitutional violation of the rights of the majority. In conclusion Mr. O’Ferrall predicted that the I leu us-rat* would return to (siwer in the Fifty-second congress, and Bien there would lie no usurer in the s|D*aker’s chair. Mr. On*enhalge of Massachusetts said that if the vok*e of Hie jieople was tlw* voice of Go*l, then the voice of G*dI gave to the eon-tratant from the Fourth *listrict of West Virginia his seat in the house.
