According to the fitrnr??? given by Mr Packer, in
his speech, the postage on all the d?>< timeuta printed
by ihe last Coiif-ies? would have beeti lefts than
f7_0 per B??i_?ion for each member. It wouM there?
fore amount ouly to $J<kj,'*'- ?k year t?. furnish stampa
for even the extravagant quantity of matter tnat
was ordered printed before franking was abolished,
and this wo.ild lie far more economical than to re?
store the franking nbnse. Besides, if the member,
were allowed a fixed amount of stamps, they would
be certaiu not to print document? in excess of the
quantity they could send o? xvith tin ir stamp allow
Whatever may be decid???! upon _s to theni.tli.td
of distributing the public document?, it is certain
that the privilege of emulating, free of postage,

UM District of Columbia Committee had the floor

poifod a bill to ....thou/.,- the Washington and Point

of -V._--liiii_.ti.il. It waa a carinna circiiniatance that
four Pennsylvania meiuliers, on* after another, op
IHISKI the bill, while nohorty els? had anything to
say against it. When the last of theao -gentlemen
had made rome capital ont of the fact that the dole
Kate from the ilistrii t wa* the Vice President of the

the inlluence of Tom Scott and the Pennsylvania
Kailioad in the oppoaitiou the measure was encoun?
tering. At tliia, tho four lYunsvlyania members
were virtuously indignant. Throe of them solcmuly

Scott on the subject. From (heir airof injured inno

went over without detinite Betten.

HAVAN*, Feb. 14-While I waa sitting in mv ?.ox
in the Tacon Theater, on Tbnra?l_y ???ni??, Hu?t-??
ing io the music of Crispino, 1 noticed that several
ladies quietly left tilt ir boxea and the theater, and.
further, that there seemed to be a (ron?
era! filling of ni,? asm? re. 1' .ring the ?-??
treactt I learned that a laige body ?.!
Volontiers, unarmed, however, bad Mwetnbleri
at the Plaaa de Annas, in front of the Captam-Cen
eral's palace, and had demanded with loud cries a
change of the decreea regarding the draft. It seems
to be fhe wish of the Volunteers to be allowed to po
into rampaigu by full battalions, and not to be
drafted into scrxicc. in order to prevent a not, or?
ders wiro given to clear the crowd, which wa?
dono by a squad of mounted civil guards, during
which, I am assured, aomo persons were
wounded and live killed. A stromr force of armed
Notaataaaa waa then rapidly stationed on all Ino
sf roete of the city opening in the square in which is
the palace, and no one was allowed to pass, l'i? kits
of cavalry w. re also stationed oub-ido of Havana,
and preparations made to put down any further dis?
The morning papers refening lo the disturbance
condemn it as only the attempt? of the uneasy and
unruly spirit? to be found in every large city, and
who, at Havana, take every opportunity of
making an anti-Spanish ahow of Mittag.
UMBB troublons minds tho IHario repartis
aa several dofen of leading, ambitions men,
who desire nothing better than the min of the
island, and BO many hnndreds of doole, unreflect?
ing instruments of their ambition? intrigues, who
follow like sheep the wild promptings of the mauter
minds. The Voz do Cuba seta down the number as
three hundred and over, who are alxvajB iu the van
of every anti-Spanish manifestation.
The fact is that the recent decree of the Captain
Ccneral. and the other orders connected therewith,
putting the Island of Cuba in a state of siege, and
providingioragener.il draft, have not met with
peneral approval among the volunteer element of
Havana- that element which has t-o often,
through its leading repres?-ntntivrs, offered up
for the conn fry their live*?, their fortun?e,
and their SAC red honors. To tho universal liberty
allowed in the discussion of .J the m(pBWBf ,n?"pt?.?i
in this island is due, ac-cording to the Pot de Cn bo, the
r-? out demonstrations. A number of the SOO rascals
referred to, not liking the wording of part of the de?
crees, met at the Fountain of La India, in the Patk
Ysabel II., and tien in a body proceeded down
Ohi?po-st. toward tho l'hua do Arma?.
Nono were a??..?-.i, but many woie in uni?
form, and almost all had the red and yellow
' rosette of the Volunteers in their bah*. Tbt-ir in?
tention was to go to th?. I'.il.i?o anil expresa to the
Captuin-Ooneral that they were not in accord with
their colonels, win?, two dave before, bad offered
their adhesion to the Captain-Gen? nil, and had re?
sponded for the battalions they eoiiim.'iDdcd. Many
of the provisions of the decree met with their
disapproval, and they desired fcotne modifica?
tions; they v. is li ed lo yo into eerxico
in full battalions commaiidul by th? ir
own ollie, rs anil suiroiinilcd bj theil own comrades
and friends. Ba?hWM their intention | but it was
not carried into cfl. < t, for the guard on duty at the
l'alaee was called out, and the Chief ef I'olieo at
the head of ten mounted police charged the crowd
and dispersed it without trouble or bloodshed,
although many threatening crio wcie rai-td
and a general call to anns dem-tuhd. They
also shouted, "We will rctt?xii again -more
of ns." In consequence of ti?.s threat ?-tr?mg
fun H of Volunteer? were (ailed out-oidcrly Volun?
teers, be it understood, who ? oiild he depended on
andpick.-isof cavalry stationed at diflerent points
ol the city. Tho night passed in quiet, although
the occurrence gave rise to the wildest munns
YeMeidity morning several arrests were made.
Ihe most notable one was that of the ex-cur?.
of the cathedral here, Father Castro, who wa?
distinguished in Havana for his faetidioiis habits
and his radical rrpublicanibm. Seftor Martinez,
formerly an ? ditor of a journal of thi? city, was also
arrested. Both person? aro accused of being con?
cerned la the disturbance, and were yesterday, w uti
several other persons, arrested on the samo charge,
and contiiicd.m th?, Cabufiu fortitication. Their cases
will be the sutiject of a court-marl lal, an we are now
under martial law, and so general seems to be the
belief that it will go hard with them, that a report
is current that Castro and Martine, bax e already
been tried and sentenced to death.

Al.ho.if.ti many persons feared that t\zti uri

by fraud, there was nevrtheless a great deal ot aaton?
Miment among the ?people of that city ?hen they learned
tho reeuit of the late eon test. W. I). Ifaxleton, Cbatraan

to bo found In the uuiversaiitv of intimidation,
repeating, false personating, bribery, and fruu_.il. -it
voting of all descriptions." The Committee, ha say?,
has collected suflklent facts " to show not only lUe ex?

also to prove Indisputably that ?Senator MeClure wa? in
reality elected by a handsome maturity." For the pres?

phia may rest allured that the BSUSB d triumph of co
office-holders will prove flu dearest victory money ever

caaes of fraudulent voting, the principal pointa of
which are given below: Large b< dn-s of repeater*
from New York, Baltimore, and other places, BMBBhaled
l?y protiiinetit local polituiaue, did their work efi? c
tiv.-ly in tho Urst. Tenth, Nineteenth and Twenty
sixth Wards. lu the Fire! Wai.l they voted without op
tposition, manv of the election orneen having lu-.-n
n avily bribed and the police instructed to cover ihcir
operations. In one division of the ward a board wau
nailed up at the polling-window so as to eflfeetnaUy con?
ceal the voter? from the scrutiny of the mlnoiity
officers, and it waa ki pt lu place despite the earnest pro
teetl of tUa inspector and overseer. In one tu?t iu.?e the
window-book men, both of them bribed, BW the votes
In themaclve? for the repeater? as often a? they ap?
At the Sixth DlviMoi. of fh. Tenth Ward the poll?, un?
der the efllcient protection of three poMeenien, more
than half tho entire \ot?: ca?t was p. lied by repeater*,
'lb.-same state of altairs existed lu otlnr drvimuus of
the same ward. A careful i ??l?mate from the detective?
and tho manner of distribution indicate? that ncuriy
7,000 vote? were polled in tbi? way. Io one instance a
man wa? dressed lo full naval uinfuim at a di-tuct
station-house and voted lu the name of a captain In the
navy who was out of town. The minority
inspector, an intimate acquaintance and m-lghoor
of the Captain, cbalk-uio-d the votur, bul was
overruled by the judges who allowed ithe fraudulent
vote to oc cost. The isaue of fraudulent tax receipt?

ceptlou the police force on aitlvi duty cooperated with
the repeater? and roundsmen, to intimidate votors and
compel the receptiou of ballots openly acknowledged to
