i"o be so drawn, as to allow the State to draw
ordnance and stores, camp and garrison equip
page, cooking utensils, overcoats, blankets,
ftc, in liquidation by balance due the State.
Senator Edmunds submitted the following
amendment to the preamble'to the resolution
ntroduced by Senator Mathews before the re
cess, as follows:
Bs IT ENACTED, That all bonds of the United
btates issued, or authorized to be issued, under
the acts of Congress ere payable, principal and
interest in gold coin or its equivalent, and that
-.ny other, payment without consent of the
creditor, would be in violation of the public
faith and in derogation of hiB rights
WHEREAS, It appears from the record of
mints that the total coinage of the silver dollar
has been 8,045.339.
AND WHBEEAS, The silver dollar of the United
States has been long absolutely obsolete as any
substantial part of the money" of the country,
and that which had been so coined almost en-
tli, un a ttia which had been so coined almost eh ^e.oe*
rarely converted into other forms of metal and
not exist at tho time of makin any of the
States had borrowed in" gold coin from
i He people of this and other countries the sum
not less than $592,990,700, at a rate of in-
*$ tres lower than that of any loan ever before
made br the government, and payable in coin.
AND WHEREAS, The holdera of all government
securities hav e,a right to expect that, howovcr
much^he- UnJtwl*Sr*tes may change its laws so
RB in Xiict to effect their interests favorably,
It will never cvado or ropeal favorite legisla
tion either for tho purpose or with the effect
to make money at the expense of its creditors.
AND WHXIVEAS: Differing from transaction of
affairs between privato persons, the public
creditors have no means of enforcing payment
of their loans, it is a duty of the highest obli-
s, jgation on tho part of tho Unitod States to pay
nin debts in such a manner as to meet the just
expectations of its creditors, and to refrain
from taking advantage of tho cheapness of
silver by reviving other obsolete coins, or ob
Koleto or repealed coinage laws, in order to pro
vide for payments in siUrer,
AND WHEREAS, The substantial present value
of silver in a dollar of 412K grains being only
92 per centum of the value of a dollar of gold,
it woiild also be unjust for the low-making
power by now legislation to compel all private
creditors to receive from their debtors such a
silver dollar at par in payment of pre-existing
debts, and equally unjust, and even more cruel
to compel the great number of citizens of the
United States who subsist on the wages of a
daily laborer to receive payment for their svork
ia money either depreciated or debased.
Laid on the table and ordered printed,
the resolution to which it is proposed as an
amendment, now being before the Senate.
Tho Senate then resumed consideration of
i the resolution of Senator Matthews declaring the
rightof government to pay its bonds in silver,
rind Senator Bailey rend along argument as to
g| the constitutional powers of Congress rcira
Jatiug coinage, etc.
Senator Bailey argued that it was the inten
tion of Congress to pay the bonds in coin, and
the acts were most carefully worded that the
coin might bo either gold or si ver. He favored
the passage of the resolution of Matthews and
contended that the restoration of the silver
dollar would not prevent or retard the funding
i the public debt as had been argued. He had
no doubt that our debt could be funded at 4
per cent. The object of remonetizing the sil
ver dollar was not to furnish money to pay the
public debt alone.,
arrest the movement inaugurated in Europe to
take Bilver from the coinage of nations,
to check the advance in the
value of gold, and to". cheapen money in this
country, and enable the people to pay their
debts. He quoted from the recent works of
Dr. Lendeman, Director
of the mint, and
said he (Bailey) agreed with the Senator' from
Kentucky, Beck, that silver coinage would not
be pushed forward without positive instruc
tions onthe part of Congress. Ho would not
believe that the men who voted for the act of
1878, demonetizing silver, were guilty of wilful
fraud, utJhe did think they were tho victims
of the bondholders. He thought now that Con
gress by prompt action could arrest this move
ment to. demonetize silver throughout the
world, and thus prevent a great evil to mankind.
A contracted and constantly contracting .curren
cy dwarfed our capacity and paralyzed our efforts
He commented at some length on the financial
policy of Germany, and said that country
would never have demonetized'silver if she had
mines producing forty million dollars annually.
Had she been able to produce so much her
mintB would have been at work night and day.
In conclusion, he argued that -with the single
gold standard oiir vast debt, doubled jn value
would bring poverty to all homes.
The Senate went into exbeutive session, and
when the doors reopened adjourned.

deficiency were also stated, when the subject
was referred to the Democratic members of the
committeo on accounts for their consideration
and prospective action. The caucus had a brief

ocrat should absent himself from the House

better to secure this end committee has been
appointed, with Representative'Eden as chair
man, to whom Democrats are to report, when
pairs will be provided.

of Mexican raids, and gives the-history of the
same for the last tsv^nly ycara^incluaingGor
tinas' capture of Brownsville in 1859. The
Governor's specific charges are:
FirstIt has been a depredatory war.
SecondThat custom houso officials have
been murdered, custom houses taken and
robbed, postofhees robbed and burned, hund
reds of citizens killed and some tortured. Win.
McMahon, for instance, had his lege cut off and
was forced to walk on the stumps. Murdoch
was chained to a harrow placed on him, and he
was burned while, in his own house within five
miles of Corpus Christi. Women have been
made prisoners and subjeoted to treatment too
horrible to. mention.

notified many times by oure of the existence
of these evils, but she has hot restrained her
citizens, and she refuses to permit the United
States to break up the hostile bands which
commit the atrocities, and has declared an at
tempt to do so a cause of war.
SixthShe has refused to execute the extra
dition treaty by not surrendering four raiders
who were themselves enemies of mankind by
breaking open the jail of Starr county, releas
ing prisoners therefrom and wantonly wound

to set on foot expeditions to invade territory of
the United States and to wage savage warfare
upon the people of Texas, including within its
scope every ago and sex children have been
captured in Texas, carried into Mexico and
held as slaves.
Gov. Hubbard asserts that Texas does not
want war but simply protection from Mexican
violence. Ho charges'that the San Elizario mob
who shot Howard, McBride and Atkinson to
death, was composed largely of Mexican citi
zens. The Governor recites the horrible massa
ore, and says Mexico should make amends for
the crimes committed by her citizens.

THE BITDATIONTHE NEW iaNG.
LONDON, Jan. 14.X correspondent at Rome
says: Since the day of Count Cavour'a death in
Turin there never was 6een a population of any
city so utterly stunned by a sudden blow as
the Romans appeared when the official, an
nouncement of the king's death removed every
doubt of the fearful loss the nation had sus
tained. Tho sudden transition from father to
son could not have occurred at a moro trying
moment. The ministers of the late sovereign
have been maintained in their offices by hia
young successor, but what ministersa cabi
net that was a mere rehash of the administra
tion fallen a few days ago under an irresistible
outburst of public indignation, forsaken by
nearly all sections of an immense parliamen
tary majority, brought together by fair means
or foul at the recent election, and hampered by
a variety of raeh engagements which it had
shown itself neither willing nor able to fulfill.
We must have anew session of parliament and
an address from the crown, but the latter must
come from a new king who hardly knows
anything about his late father's ministers and
does not much like the little he knows, and
is-supposed to harbor views and principles in
opposition to those attributed to them. If ever
there was need of, a Providence to shape ends
rough hewn by man, it certainly is felt in the
position in which Italy has been put 'by the
death of Victor Emanuel-coming so unex
pectedly at the end of the beginning of an un
expected ministerial crisis and an almost hope

A Credit Mobllier Case.
PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 14.In the United States
Circuit Court to-day Judge McKay delivered an
opinion in the case of Henry J. McComb, vs.
the Credit Mpbilier.- The Plaintiff claims that
in 1866 he purchased for a third party 250
shares of the capital stock of the Company.
The interest in which stock was subsequently
transferred* to himself. But objection was
made by the Company to granting certifi
cates to McComb on the ground of in
formality, and the shares it is alleged
were transferred by the company to
Oakes Ames as trustee. McComb now claims
not oply the 250 shares, but also the 6tock divi
dend upon them of 125 shares more and the
profits accruing. The court is of the opinion
that the plaintiff is not entitled to relief, and
his bill therefore dismissed with costs.

in inter-stute commerce, a matter wholly with
in the jurisdiction and control of Congress.
The State court held the law valid, and the
same question was preseuted here. The stat-
ute,i* regarded in acooBdanee with the decision
below as requiring those engaged in inter
state commerce to gi aU persons
traveling in Louisiana upon public
conveyances, employed in their business, equal
rights and privileges without distinction on ac
count of race or color, and it is said that for
this reason the court has nothing to do with it
as a regulation of internal commerce, or as af
fecting anything elso than commerce among
States, and as to this the court says: "There
can be no doubt that that exclusive power has
been confencd upon-Congress."
The difficulty has never been as to the exist
ence of thiB power, but as to what is to be
deemed an encroachment upon it and it may
be safely said that State legislation which seems
to impose a direct burden upon inter-State
commerce, or to interfere directly with its free

when the fixe occurred owed some $7,500 to St.

said that instead of there being $4,000 worth of
stock in the store at the time of the fire, as
claimed by Wood, there was but- $2,500 worth.
It was further charged that several thousand
dollars, have disappeared unaccountably, and
that arson was committed to destroy the cvi

Excited State of Feeling in I.tcuflelrt-~The
Case Called Yesterday and some Interest
ing t'ae'te Relating Thereto.
Parties arriving in tho city last evening from
Litchfield, brought the information that the
case of the State against Annie Hollingsworlh,
indicted for deadly assault upon the person of
her paramour, John Eshjornson, 6ome time last
July, was called up for trial yesterday after
noon. The case baa excited intense interest in
the community, and a very wide difference cf
opinion as to the merits aad demerits of the
caae is observable.

July and was participated in bv Annie, her sis

affair, by-the old man -himself,-' who arrived
just in tho liiek: of time, to decorate
both optics of the unfortunate swain in a
lasting garb of ebinbre hue. By good fortnue,
EsbjonisoiT escaped out' of tho Jaws

Shortly after the shooting. Miss HolliUgtw
worth's allegation received at least quasi con
formation in the action of tho prosecuting at
torney of Milwaukee, who it appears, after in^~'
Htituting an investigation of the affair, caused
an iBdietment to be found against Esbjornson
and one Dr. Macdonald on the charge of pro
ducing abortion upon the person of
the lady. Both- the accused were thereupon,
arrested, and, after a preliminary investigation,
last week, before Judge Mallory of that city,', j*'
both were held to bail in large sums to appear l,
and answer the charge, and it has since been
ascertained that the trialnas been Bet for the
first Tuesday in February. .-K
THE LKGAL CONTESTANTS.
In the meantime, Annie, who of course had fgA
to go to Milwaukee as a witness in the case "^T
there, has returned to Litchfield to stand her
own trial which was called yesterday afternoon.
Her attornies, Messrs. Ed. A. Campbell and L.
C. Spooner, of Litchfield, are fully prepared to
make a most vigorous and determined fight in
ner behalf, while the prosecution will be con
ducted by C. D. O'Brien, Esq., of this vAxtS
County Attorney Strobcck and his partner, g/^'*.^,
A. Plumley, Esq.
Some idea of the excited state of feeling cs- i&*-
isting in Litchfield in this matter may be $ff|
gleaned from the statement that the defendant's J$
friends, are strongly prejudiced against the jl
Sheriff, who is a countryman of the principal
prosecuting witness, and that the first move of "J
her counsel in the case will be an application '-A
itot the Court, Judge Brown to eekj'
