script." Green Clay Smith, of Kentucky, a short, good looking, soldierly man, though on the Democratic side of the House, is a good Republican. He strongly advocates the anti-slavery amendment to the Constitution. He is talking to Henry Winter Davis, the handsome and eloquent representative from Baltimore city, and Chairman of the Committee on Foreign Affairs. But to hastily close up this already lengthy letter, we must pass on. Here, on the Speaker's right, are Samuel J. Randall, of Philadelphia, and Myer Strouse, of Pottsville. The latter is tall and good-looking, of Jewish aspect, with black hair and beard. He has lately taken strong ground in favor of the Government. Near them are McClurg, of Missouri, the smallest man in stature in the House; Cobb, of Wisconsin, the only member of Congress who wears a military uniform; and Alexander H. Rice, of Boston, the energetic Chairman of the Naval Committee, and a strongly-urged candidate for the Secretary ship of the Navy.
