Mr. Morton does not like the work of presiding over the deliberations of ,the senate, that is evident. It is too obviously a task for him, one which makes him nervous, fearful, timid. * j He is afraid to open his month lest he say the wrong thing, and constantly has his eye on two senators who sit a little to the left, as if looking to them for the cue what to do next. These senators, Ingalls and Edmunds, are ever on the alert to give assistance, and the amiable but hesitating man in the chair puts a question,when Mr. Edmunds nods and declares the order of business is so and so, when Mr. Ingalls calls a page and sends a marked copy of the calendar to the desk of the presiding offlcer. Vice President Morton says presiding over the sessions of the senat/o is. the hardest work he ever did in his life, and after an hour or so of it this day he retires to his private room to compose his nerves. The man who takes his place is one, of tho marked characters of this gathering of notables. Senator Ingalls is a man who would attract attention anywhere. He is unlike any other man in the world. As he stands at the base of the platform on which the president sits, waiting to ascend, he unconsciously assumes a statuesque posture so like that of some great, peculiar, impossible swamp bird that a newspaper correspondent who sits by my side, and who has some genius for pencil sketching, exclaims, "Look at the Kansas stork!" and rapidly draws an amusing picture. Mr. Ingalls is an habitual attitudinizer. Some people say he does this because he knows it attracts attention and excites comment: but I think it is all done unconsciously. The same skeptics declare Mr. Beed, the most conspicuous man at the other end of the Capitol, uses his down east drawl designedly and with the same purpose in view, because he knows it is quaint and alluring; but these suspicions are very unjust. Mr. Beed drawls and twangs because he can't help it, any more than he can help being fat and sassy. As for Mr. Ingalls, it is as natural for him to pose, to be, picturesque, to fold his arms on liis breast or clasp hands behind his back, as it is for him to breathe. Politics aside, and thinking only of the men who are interesting and extraordinary, it is a pity that Mr. Ingalls may leave the senate, where_he is clearly the most conspicuous figui-e. He is not exactly popular among his associates, but every, one will be sorry to see him go. Without Ingalls-the thin, tall, grave man with a voice six sizes too large for him; the man whose face has an ex- pression of vitriol and df intellecual savagery in it; the man who "chews his fscrubby^gray-mustahce all the time and occasronally adjusts^his "red' cravat or stakes'oflE his owl lilte' spectacles and 'Wipes them"with an air all' bis own; inimitable audindescribable; the man who speaks-the English^,'langn^ein-^ large, !bold?type;all;nioely!punotuateSjsaoccntf,i iiiatedvand ii^icizedi Borthat 'ble heiutteira may.;l(e heard/tatheiutterri ^tractions; When shall walook upon bis like again? ~ " ' .

Jhoyr ,t^eingto the senate be had been six years in the house of reproBentatives. Thirty-six years in the very front of public service, once almost elected (ipeaker, once in the cabinet, four times nearly within reach of the presidential nomination; and more than a quarter of a century a leader of the senate-what a great careerl Right in front of Sherman, sitting well snuggled down in his chair, his bald head bent low down, and twiddling his thumbs as usiial, sits another statesman who has been so long here that it almost seems that the senate could not run on without him. George P. Edmunds is the oldest senator in continuous service. Next Apiil he will complete a quarter of a century's service of his state in this body. With Ingalls out and Edmunds dead-for even this tough old man must some day succumb to nature's law-who will there be left to stick for the proprieties and the forms and the dignities of the ancient and honorable senate? Who will there be to coach the vice presidents of the future who are more lucky in politics than versed in legislative lore? As Edmunds grows older he becomes bolder; he is a sort of licensed free thinker here-not a genuine infidel and scoffer, as Ingalls is, for Mr. Edmunds goes to church every Sunday and keeps a jprayer book on the desk which stands in the library of his $50,000 sBsthetic home in Washington, but a senator who says what he pleases about men and things in his dry, rasping, sardonic way, without much fear of being taken to task. The simple truth is every one is afraid of him. He is like the cross old bulldog loose in theyard; every one admires him, but no one cares to stir him up or play any pranks on him. Yet Edmunds is not so cross as ho looks. Half tho bitter things which he says-and he says a good many-are said so coldly and dryly, with such obvious absence of feeling, \vith such apparent purpose to amuse in his grim, terrible way, that even the victims join in the smile which goes round and echo the prevalent comment, "What an old ter-r�r he is, to be sure!" Sherman, Edmunds, Morrill-this trio of names comes unconsciously to tho tongue. Speak of the great old men of the senate, and these are in your mind at once. Morrill is getting very old-and feeble, yet here he is, determined, apparently, to die in harness, as did John 'Quincy. Adams. Morrill is-really the patriarch of congress, being the oldest man in years and longest in service. He came to the house in 1855, along with :John Sherman and Gen. Banks, and has been in either the house or the senate ever since. Thus we have two senators from a single state :.who have a combined service record of sixty-one years. No other state in the Union has ever equaled that, and it is safe to say that little Vermont will hold the record for many a year. The Green Mountain state appears to have a penchant for constancy to her public men, for it is n remarkable fact that both of these Vermont veterans succeeded men of long experience, Edmunds first entered the senate seven days after the death of Solomon Foote, who had been nineteen years in congress,* dying in harness, wliile Morrill succeed-; ed Jacob Collamer, who had a great career as representative, cabinet offlcer qnd senator. It is an interesting group of old meii, that our gaze has fallen on. By Ed-! munds' side sita a man with a small; weak looking body, an enormous head, a huge nose and hps which fall into lus face like a canyon in a bare prairie. It is the great Evarts, now near the dose of his long career. His senatorial term expires three months hence, and at three score ten and three he certainly does not aspire to further public service. Mr. Evarts is a man who is slowly going to sleep. His years are: many and they do not sit lifehtly on him; yet at. times he can rouse himself. Wlien he makes a speech it is like the oration of a ventriloquist's mannikin,. for^ the form ia stiff and unsteady on its pins, and on account of: the absence of teeth in the orator's head the \yords.come out with- out much articulation and with a cerr tain' mechanical, sound. Though .:the body is old and the teeth conspicuous by ; their ^bsenoe^odd: that a senator should have an; ineradicable prejudice against :such useful ^products of.:' modem civilization as manufactured molarsi'and. ivory incisors-there is .nothing the matter with the great; brain. , As one looks down on this old man, probably-the; foremost J,lawyer of his tune in a.natipn of" gi;eat^ lawyers, onis' can't avoid'thin&ing of the - power that] brain^faMjex^cimdinthe^aSau and one wishes there^vrerol^^ of:measuring the ohmByor.volts-^6r; foot tons or horsepower of a;great And energetic intellect WALtBB Weixman; .
