Tit absurdities sod eccentricities of
congressional character are decidedly
amusing; often times they show "sun
spots" of good nature in a member's
character, which have remained for
whole session obscured by the acerbities
of debate, and the blind passion en
gendered by party strife.
Yet iu the relaxation of the closing
hours of tho session, when tho tense
strain of the protracted struggle has
given way and the members are about
to separate for their homes, we see these
hot-headed deputies shaking hands over
the bloody chasm, and apologizing to
one another aud to the country for hot
ungeiitlemaaly words, spoken in the
heat of debate.
Apropos of this is the scene between
"Sammy Cox", of N. Y., and Mr. Page
cf California, during the last moments
of the congress which has just adjourned
it was both laughable and farcical.
Mr. Page said he took back all he had
said about Mr. Cox having lo imigrate
from Ohio to Xew York to cot elected
to congress. He admitted it came from
him with very bad grace aud was entire
ly uncalled for; that he liked Kammy
mil considered turn a gootl ileal more
than an average democraic congressman
In return for this Sammy said he loved
Mr. Page and all he had said of him
was said in pick-wickian sense; that
Mr. Page wss a wonderfully good fellow,
and fit to represent any republican con

the last moments of that session of con
gress, where it was tid the colored rep
resentative from South Carolina Mr.
tauey was the only sober member on
the floor. Mr. Cox had a pension claim
ant, for whom he was attempting to get
special relief through congress; and in
presenting the claim of his man in an
urgent personal nppeul, just before the
speakers gavel fell, he said: "The claim
ant had beeu most thoroughly and suc
cessfully woutidctl iu every particular."
His client's claim failed, but Sunset Cox
brought down the house.
