By 10 :30 o'clock, an hoar and a half before the time of meeting, the public galleries of both houses were filled and the eager crowd had overflowed into the outer cor ridors. The senate was called to order prompt ly at noon. The vice-president admin istered the oath to the senators elect, and the nsnal formal resolutions were adopted.

The announce ment of Reed's election was greeted with great applause, which was continued when he ascended the rostrum, and his speech was also punctuated with ap plause. It was as follows:' 'It will not bj unbecoming in roe, I hope, if I acknowledge to this assembly that it is very agreeable to me to stand once more in the place I left four years ago. Of the past,' however, I ehall not speak, for the past speaks for itself in terms more tilting and appropriate than any words which could come from my lips. JNor shall I speak of the future, for' we are not putting off the harness, but putting it on. Yet, I think I can venture to say of the future, in the light of the past, that if we do something which for the moment seems inadequate, it may be that timewhich has justified it for us on many occasions, may do so again. Those who" have acted with wis dom heretofore may be fairly expected to act with wisdom hereafter. I am sorry to say the pleasure associated with the honor you have bestowed on me, an honor no American citizen can fail ' to appreciate and for which I eive thanks. lasts for but a moment or eo, while the cares and responsibilities extend over many days. "So far as the performance of my duties affects the whole people of the United Stat3s I invoke their considerate judgment. So far as it affects the mem bers of this honse.I ask from both chambers that cordial co-operation, wUhout which I can cannot hope to suc ceed, aesuring them that no effort on my part will be spared to "aid them in the performance of their duties bv "that en tire impartially which is their just due.,' The republican caucus nominees for house officers were promptly elected. .
