tion will ho made to substitute tho Sen

tho Bern to has voted down some of tbe
leading provisions of tho llcagan bill,
which Mr. Slater, Mr. Yanco and otbCM
sought to cngiatt on tho Senate ..n'easnrf
leave no doubt that this mo
tion will eventually prevail, though
probably more talk will bo hid before no
tion Is taken, Tbo Senile will then send
tj tho House a bill which differs so wide
ly from tho House encctmenton the same
subject that It Is preposterous to expect
the Houso to agree to It and tho Houso
will Insist upou a bill, tho leading pro

Tho call under this order rests with tho

Intended to move tbo passsgo of the

having been disposed of, they nro at
liberty to ptoscut another bill.

Tbo diplomatic corps had a private

The crowd was vory great, and It took
more than half an hour to run the gaunt

Hut there was no attempt at crowding.
The ladles' dresses, whit there was of
thcin, were t-lmply gorgeous; Wt la J
number of Instances thero was little visi

slender shoulder-straps ; all tho rest had
run down to the train.
In tho spacious l'.ast room, where the

the bine room, where tho President re
ceived them, there was a scene which, for
diversity of decorations, gold laco and
feathers and haudsomo toilets, could prob
ably uot be surpassed by the most "effete

The reccptlou was to last from nln un

Tho statistics ottho grain carrying trade

by Mr. William 11. Ferguson, of the Pro

even startling. Not only has thero becu

that tha steamers aro doing nearly all
the business formerly doue, almost ex

while crafts carrylug our own national
colors onco had a large share ot the
business, last year only two Amerlean
vessels carried grain from New York to
Kurope. The United States now stands
at tho bottom of the list. The vessels ot
the third, fourth and filth rate potters of

than our own vessels do. Portugal,

100,000 head ol cattle, aud they aro dying
at tha rats ot nearly 1,000 a day frotncold,

Is simply dreadful, 'the cattle will uot
turn against tho uortu winds aud seek
other sections for food, and there Is not
