Giovanni an italian Emigrant Estabi Ith de himself in a Small but prosperous Hamlet in i Louisiana soon after the termination of the last War. He married the daughter of a Creole who was in easy circumstances and had but two children to share Hie property. Giovanni and Bis wife opened a Public House which flourished to the utmost of their wishes to that with his expectations from his father in Law and his present Prosperity he was in a fair Way of becoming a wealthy Man. Among the neighbouring planters was a French gentlemen named Lafarge who was a finished debauched in sentiment and practice to Short pleasure appeared to be the whole object of Bis life and to gratify Bis appetite he had recourse to the most criminal projects without regard to the Dishonour and wretchedness which he spread around him. He sooner ascertained that Giovanni hid a charming wife Aud As women who superintend a Public House cannot avoid the acquaintance of strangers the unsuspecting Matilda found herself in a Short time exposed to the fascinations of the tempter. In a word by Means of Flat teries and presents he accomplished her ruin. In so doing he gradually cooled her affection for her husband who reposed too much Confidence in her to have the slightest suspicion of her Quot stolen hours of it is however the nature of vice to be imprudent a the guilty pair whose attachment was known to every other person in the Village so neglected every precaution that Giovanni s Eye became open to the dreadful truth. His first idea on making the discovery was to sacrifice Matilda and her seducer at the very moment of their shame. But on Cool reflection he thought that Quot this was but poor revenge Quot a and he from the Hartford Timet. The spoons of Quot Massy a another Federal lie nailed to the counter. The British whig presses and panic orators have been circulating for some time a Story about the spoons of Quot Massy Gold Quot which were alleged to have been seen on the table of the president a Short time since by or. Anoa Awa of Kentucky and have freely used that gentleman s name to give a semblance of truth to their statements. It will be seen by the following extract of the proceedings of Congress As reported in the Globe that or. If Oaas has unequivocally denied the Story in a Public manner. What new falsehood will next be manufactured by thee a unprincipled presses and speech makers cannot be easily Cocci cd. But that some new Bug Bear Story will shortly find its Way to the Public from the brain of another of the tribe of whinge by cannot be doubted by any who understand the nature and habits of that class of beings. Quot or. Ool then spoke at some length in relation to the furniture in the president s House and in the course of his remarks referred to the following paragraph which appeared in the Globe of yesterday copied from a Northern paper Viz Quot or. Amok web a Good whig member from Kentucky who possesses All the Blunt honesty which characterizes the people of that state whilst dining with the president observed a splendid service of Gold plate upon the table and taking one of the Golden spoons in his hand said to the president Quot or. Van Buren if you will let me take this spoon to Kentucky and show it to my constituents i will Promise not to make use of any other argument against you this will be Quot when articles like this Are circulated through the Federal press and regarded As second Only to log Cabins and hard cider it May be deemed excusable to say that the Gold plates spoons knives and Forks which have figured so largely of late in the opposition papers Are the same which the president found in the White House when he took Possession that the plates instead of Gold Are simple China purchased in or.

It seemed that at Flor a even Daya Congo died a tia debate it a Ras about formed his plans accordingly. He disc bled his understood to deny the truth of the comments knowledge of their guilty and even assumed an air of cheerfulness which disarmed All suspicion. In the meantime he pretended that he had received a letter from a relative just arrived at Cuba Lettun from Europe and took his departure after an affectionate Farewell to his wife children and even to Lafarge whom he with an affectionate shake of the hand requested to Call often during his absence and Bear his Matilda company. When the adulterers were left alone without danger of discovery their behaviour be Patiic quite outrageous. Matilda neglected her household and her children and passed most of her time in Lafarge s premises. The natural consequences of such unlimited indulgence was disgust on the part of these sneer which was increased by the fond import unities of Matilda and still More so by a project on foot by Lafarge s relations to reclaim him by an advantageous marriage. He was introduced to his intended just at a time when he begun to feel satiety for his Paramour so that the Young and Beautiful Amelia at once made a deep impression on his sensual heart. As nothing seemed to interfere with the completion of their happiness a Day was appointed for the nuptials and the bridal preparations were soon in a state of forwardness. In the meantime Matilda found out How matters stood and her mind became a prey to disappointed love and remorse. She sent and called frequently at Lafarge s dwelling and was refused admittance and when on the morning of the intended wedding Abe met him on the up Etc Road in the presence of a concourse of people he openly Shook her from him and reviled her with the bitterest execration. At length the moment arrived when the delighted Lueata assembled at the elegant mansion of mrs. Arundel the Mother of Amelia. Just before the ceremony was to be performed the attention of Lafarge was acc Dently attracted to the Grove near the Park in which it was intended to exhibit fireworks. Soon afterwards be returned to the Hoase where Amelia and Bere Ortege of maids impatiently awaited him. To a Benediction by Bishop Dubourg in Bia Reaal and impressive manner and the couple were about resuming their seats when the company was startled by the repeated eries of murder replied to the a Mph Benee the multitude was seen collecting with torches in the Grove. Whu could exceed the horror of All present when it was ascertained that Matilda s Cor ise bad been discovered in the Thicket covered with wounds and near her were found the Dagger hat and cloak of la Farge Early next morning a Coroner s inquest was held Eret the body and painful As it was to the feelings of the jurors their verdict was of Saab a nature that Lafarge waa duly committed to await Bis trial it the eos inf session.

Andrews stated that some weeks since he had heard that such a publication As the one just read from the Globe was going the rounds of Many Eastern papers. That it had not been his practice heretofore nor did he intend for the future to deviate from that practice to notice the manner in which his name might be used in connection with newspaper publication or gossip of the Day but As the gentleman from Pennsylvania had referred to that publication it was due to himself As a gentleman to say that no Tuch convert upon had taken place Between him and the Preti Deni it was True that with other gentlemen of the House he had had the Honor to Dine during the Winter with the Percsi ident and it was due to truth and his own sense of propriety and Justice to say that the president treated him As a gentleman and he trusted that it had been Bis Fortune to treat the president in like manner. father of the celebrated Paul Jones was a Gardener to lord Selkirk and among other peculiarities was remarkable for Bis fondness for what a called symmetry. Thus if he planted a Shrub in one part of the Garden he would set another in a corresponding situation for symmetry. At the end of the Lawn were two summer houses exactly alike.

They Ware the Faith Fol representative a and servant of the Pelt a and to said whether general Harris up was a fit person for the presidency or not whether be is an abolitionist or not whether he was a hero and entitled to the Honfi Deuce of the people or Nawor by of their Confidence could net affect tia Bill. This a a it Roperia Tion Bill must be Paa aed for one he would say that he would vote for it whatever might be the Cyndi Tina or disposition of the of residential question. He would vote for it but before Doii so he woe id Endeavor to make it As free from objections As possible. The nov Ament must Hare Mearaa to Harry on in operations. He presumed that there waa no Natle Man in that House who would take upon by self the responsibility of with Boldini such Meana As were necessary for that purpose. It waa to Pasa in Home shape or other and he Felt bound from a conviction on his mind of a sense of duty and patriotism to Page this Bill a speedily As possible. There will be other occasions on which debates of the character which had taken place on this Bill and which had amused and instructed us and instructed the nation will be More in place and the time Ould be More ample and attended with Leas prejudice to the Public service. Or. Thought it High time that Home limitation were made to the strange latitude of debate in which gentleman had thought proper to indulge for the last few Days. For Bis part he did not feel authorized on a subject like the present to take up and discuss the merits of general Harrison although perhaps on a proper occasion it would be found that be was As Able to undertake that task As some others. Or. Then alluded to his political relations with the other four members on the committee on Public buildings and grounds when it so happened that he was placed single banded to represent the whigs. Whether it was his misfortune or his fault he would not say but it was a fact that on All measures in relation to business for polities were out of the question he invariably concurred in the opinions of those gentlemen. If in the present instance they had done wrong he was also to blame tor he had concurred with them in recommending the appropriation. If any thing exception Able bad come from the committee and had been introduced into the general appropriation Bill he Felt himself bound in Honor to take his share of the reproach. He would consider it mean and cowardly when his political opponents on the committee were attacked for him to escape from censure when he was conscious that he himself had acted with them. He mentioned this As a matter of Little consequence but be Felt bound whoever might be the accuser to stand up and do his associates on the committee Justice. He regretted to see that in relation to some items of the Bini there had been some strange misapprehensions and More particularly by the gentleman from Pennsylvania or. Zolb he understood the gentleman objected to the item of $3,665 for alterations and repairs to the president s now it would be found that this sum was made of of a Surat it or of Small items ail of in Tab were perfectly reasonable. But he would Tell the gentleman from Pennsylvania that his attack on such Small matters was a very Small business indeed and before he should conclude he would Point out to that gentleman much higher game if he Felt disposed to pursue it. In the first place the gentleman had entirely mis apprehended the character of the item of appropriation to which he objected. The Agar ate amount consisted of Many Small items and he Felt confident that when the gentleman understood How that aggregate amount was made up he would not longer object to it or deem it so very extravagant. One of these items was Quot for the annual repairs of the president s Bouse and furniture $500.&Quot now said or. L., i would ask whose duty it was to do this was the co resident at Liberty to do Iti what tenant having a lease of a House could by Law make alterations 1 and could the president make alterations in a House of which he was the occupant for four years Only 1 had he a right to do this even were he disposed to do t at Bis own expense 1 no it was the duty of the government who first built the House to keep it in repair and shelter its occupant from the Rains and wind of heaven. Did not government build the House for the accommodation of its presiding officer ? and would that government be justified in permitting it to fall to pieces and go to ruin for the want of a Small appropriation to keep it in repair ? this sum of $500, he would Tell the gentleman was exclusively for repairs to the House the word Quot furniture Quot having been inserted merely As a matter of form observed in All former appropriations. The Money was not intended to Purchase s single article of furniture but was exclusively for the House and he would Appeal to the gentleman from Pennsylvania or any other gentleman whether an appropriation of $5u0 for repairs to a House that Cost a million was not a very moderate sum ? besides if general Harrison was to occupy the House and he trusted it soon would be the Case it ought to be in Good condition. For his part be was not willing that general Harrison should enter a House in a dilapidated condition. He wished to have it provided with the necessary articles of furniture such for instance As a few chairs to sit upon for the accommodation of visitors and private individuals. Another item composing the a Greta amount was f it a the Bervice of a Garmier Loo Are this Man was employed to attend to the Public Gardena and grounds adjoining the president s House and was to fact attending to the business of government for who would undertake to say that those Godens were of any Benefit to the president t they were open to the Public and belonged to Tim pople and were kept in order More for the gratification of members of Congress than for the occupant of Tom White House. Or. Then alluded to another item for the pay it ment of a few labourers at $1 per Day and asked if it was Likely the president would hire those labourers for big own convenience. Certainly not.

When oar fora Fatwa erected that hence and ordained that it Haoold be the habitation of their presiding officer did they intend that the Walls should Tumble to Ruina and the rain and the storm beat in for want of a Small appropriation to keep it in repair no Man in his senses would think of such a thing. When our ancestors constructed the build ing they contemplated it for the i vengence of its occupant and they sorely never expected an approx Propri Tion would he objected to for keeping it in proper writer. Would gentlemen now he understood As objecting to buy proper furniture and such As was appropriate to the mansion 1 if they intended however that their president should live in Achini then he would readily admit that a great portion o the present furniture would be unnecessary and inappropriate to such a dwelling. He would like to l now if gentlemen had in contemplation the removal of this president and the Ohe that waa to follow into any other mansion. If so Why then a very Small amount will he required As a Cabin would incur but Little expense. But if it were intended that the president of this great nation should still occupy the mansion intended for him by our forefathers who won their rights by toil and blood Why then object to furnishing it in a decent manner and in a manner too in keeping with the size of the building itself 1 for the actual personal convenience of the president be was sure a very Little was desired but the occupant of the House our highest executive officer while there was the Personifi Cator of the people whose dignity required that every thing should be kept in proper order. If the president s personal wants alone were the question Why he or. , that As a Mere matter of Utility a Small one Dollar looking Glass would do just As Well As a Large swing Mirror. But who would say that the mansion of the president of the american people an officer elected for a term of four years As the representative of a Glo Riim and proud Republic embracing More than fifteen millions of Freeman should live in a Large House furnished no better than a log Cabin 1 How paltry would it look and what a miserable idea of Economy would it give to agents and ministers from foreign countries when they beheld a paltry one Dollar Loo Tuy Fly a Hung up m a a Quot i lying of dimensions equal to the palaces of Europe. The idea waa too ridiculous to be entertained for a moment and Jet by the principles on which the gentleman from Pennsylvania had been arguing this course must be pursued. Because our government was a Republic was that any reason Why the head of it should not live and appear with a proper dignity becoming the Pride and strength of the people Over whom he pre sided ? in his Humble opinion the president of a country like ours had As Good a right yes a much greater right Tobe proud As the greatest Monarch on the face of the Globe. And he or. Would Blush and to ashamed if the president should not have it in his Power to receive ministers and visitors from foreign Powers in becoming Way in a mansion furnished in keeping with the dignity of a great nation. He was sure there was no harm to be apprehended from a course of this kind and that no bad consequences would result from it. But he wished to know who it was that complained of the president s House being too Well furnished. It had been visited by hundreds and thousands of Farmers and mechanics people by whose vote he had been elected and bad they Ever uttered a complaint and said that the president of their Choice had too much or too costly furniture no. He or. Would undertake to say that no member had Ever heard such complaints that the furniture was too Rich or too Good for the Man whom they had placed in that High and honorable station. And if the people who by thousands have visited and wit neared for themselves make no complaint what right had any one Elsel it would he quite time enough for that when the people themselves were dissatisfied. Or. Then complained of the Many extravagant stories that hid gone through the country in relation to the furniture of the president s House. The ask tia Maui a a Fra.

The then referred to the similar charges made against Hia venerable colleague or. Anaas while that gentleman occupied the House. The country waa at that time made to believe the House was furnished in a Oatly Aud extravagant manner when in fact it had scarcely any furniture at All. The things were not there which of by to have be Elk there and Toee who knew no better supposed that or. Adams was enjoying things which he ought to have but did not enjoy. At at time it was obvious that such stories were circulated for political effect and was not this the Case in the present instance 1 it waa very Sumiji business especially when much higher Gromad could he taken and attacks made of More important objects.

Then addressed himself to the Batrman or. Clear and said sir i wonder if the occupancy of that chair for the last few Days with Ito Crimson drapery banging Over your Bead Bas bad tendency to affect your democratic and Republican principles. You have the Crimson car tails Banning Over your head it and Yoa Are elevated above is All and yet i cannot Concei ire for a moment that it has affected year principles or done Yon any harm. So far As my Ais Elvation Baa extended Yoor occupancy of that High seat for the last six or seven Days has made no alteration in your Demeanour or in your usual and gentlemanly Demeanour to your follow members. No i do nut believe that the trimmings of that chair have affected your mind or made any alteration in your democratic and Republican sentiments let them be what they May. Or. Then alluded to the circumstances Ander which the certain and other appendages around the chair had been placed there and he took the Opportunity of saying that if there was any objection to them he was responsible for it inasmuch As he. As a member of the committee on Public build Ingi bad reported the appropriation for it. It was True that the late speaker had the direction of it so that the chair might be in keeping with the rest of the House but he or. Was responsible As he had made the report recommending the appropriation. If it was proper to have a splendid dome on the Capitol it was also proper to have every other portion of the building in keeping with it. As it has been determined to have mahogany desks mahogany chairs with Cushion i for members he would ask whether it would be in keeping with the other parts of the Hall to put an indifferent Pine table in front of the chair. He was sore no gentleman would con tend that it would. They would All agree that it was necessary to have one portion of the Hall in keeping with another. Now the same principle which applied to the chair and to this Capitol would also apply to the president s House. If the furniture and appendages of either were considered too costly it was not the fault of the i members nor of the president. If said or. Any body is to be blamed it must be your ancestors those patriots whal Hought proper to Eona Trust such build pigs. If gentlemen Felt disposed to throw stones they must throw them at their patriotic forefathers who in the purity and simplicity of their hearts did not deem such buildings too costly or is having an anti re publican tendency. We had not done it. It had been done in generations gone by and by men better than we were and he who would Onde Ruke to deny an appropriation for keeping these buildings in repair was casting a reproach a the memories of those Good men. He would again repeat that opposing such appropriations Kwa Small business very Small indeed and which do to Man credit. There were objects of a far higher character to which i the Gen Lemau might direct his attention and where the administration was More vulnerable. He or. Waa no Friend of or. Van Buren but he would do him the Justice to say that if there waa any thing wrong in relation to the furniture of the White House the president was not to blame for it. On the contrary he or. Knew his great delicacy on the subject and would assure gentlemen that whenever the committee had consulted the president in relation to any additional furniture he had invariably expressed the greatest reluctance to have any thing expended for that object. He or. Would Sute from Hia own knowledge that not a single article of furniture supplied during the last three years Hod been supplied at the request of the president Bim Seif. The committee alone were answerable and they would aaa ome a Deepu Zibili to. But so far was the president from desiring any additions made to the furniture that about two rears ago k actually became necessary for himself and the other members of the committee to do what he had never done before nor would he Ever do it did gentlemen wish to know what that was i he would Tell them.
