Mr. lloger (Dam.. Ark.) thought that the

' to ascertain the number and compensation of
; Oftleors and omployoos of tho House and re
port what reduction in number and compensa
tion may be made without diminishing tho ef
ficiency of the force.
The House then wont Into Commlttoo of the
Whole on the Vila John Porter bill.
Mr. Swinburne (Hop.. N. Y.). who was entitled
to the floor, being in ill health, his remark!
were read by the Clerk. He believed that If the
court martini by which Porter hnd beiin con
victed had been convened In 1872 Instead of In
1862. tho verdict would have been very differ
ent, and tho record o! n soldier who had been
trustod by his commander on previous occa
sions, and always proved nolo, true, and
loyal, would have been saved from a
disgrace which had been thrown around
this man, blighting his whole lite, and hanging
as a burden ui on hlin night and day. It was
butiustlci) to the servlcoto rostors him to bis
full position and honor. Mr. Swinburne bore
testimony from personal observation to the
. Jealousies which existed among tbo officers of
tho army, and said that tho findings of the
- court-martial had been very largely the result
of jealousy. Ho cited Instances In which ho.
acting as a volunteer surgeon, had been pre
f vented from practising his profession on ae-
i count of the jealousy of the regular army sur-
toons, and declared that the War Department
had rather see a brare man lose his life than
see It saved by n volunteer surgeon. This army
jealousy had blackened the record of Gen. Por
ter as it had tarnished that of Gnn. MoClollan.
whom history, however, would place alongside
the other departed military chieftain. Gen.
Grant The country owed Gen. Porter grati
tude rather than punishment
Mr. Houlc (Hep., Tenn.) said that he would
vote against the pending bill, because he be
lieved it absolutely dostructlvoot the very fab
rio of the Government itself. Gen. Fortor bad
been charged with and convicted of the high
est offence known to military law. and to pass
this bill was to destroy the discipline of the
Whole army. This was no Issue of morcy and
amnesty, but It was a fair Issue of treachery of
the boldest and blackest and most infamous
kind on the one hand, and simple devotion and
simple obedience to orders on the other. Sup
pose that thore had been no Flu; John Porter
on Ang. 29 tbRt grand Phil Sheridan had beon
In command. Little Phil would not havo walt-
S id for orders, but would have rushed to the
letd and turned the tide of battle. The sen
tence pronounced on Fitz John Portor hnd not
been proportionate to his ofTenae. If guilty, he
should havo been shot and if ho had been a
; private soldier under the same conditions he
would have been shot If Innocent he ought
to have boon nco.ulttod.and bo would hate been
aoqultted. If guilty, as tho court maitlal had
found him to be. this bill ought not to pass.
Mr. Woolford (Dem.. Ky.) attitakod what he

then on sourcOB of variation and varlotlosduo
He said parents may gather In auMlttes and
transmit them. Thus the changes are evon
moro varied. Plants nro changed by transfer
from saline to unsnllne noil. Changes brought
about hygardonors are duo to tho feeding of
the plant Doublo flowors are thus produced.
Changes of tho soil produco 111(0 ohnnges.
When the seed from a single aoplo tree aro
plantod In tho en mo soil almost as many kinds
aro producod as there aro seeds. This is duo
to tho difference In the seed and the difference
In the nourishment taken from tho soil.
The first result from intercrossing breods are
mongrels, and with the parents are of the
same species; the oflsprlngcould nevorform a
now or different species. The product of dif
ferent species, when such Is possible, aro rarely
ever able to porpetuate tlie variety, thus show
ing that It is contrary to nature. The off
spring of different species are called hybrids.
Pansles are aupposed to come by these hybrids
from tiro or three wild violets. Dogs uro sup-
Eosod to come from species, of dog nnd tholr
Indred snetes wolf. Cattle nro from throe
species, hut there Ih a doubt whether these
were a dlstlnot species, as they interbred so
All piants and animals havo tholr environ

perfection, nnd chango as they pass from that

The American peoplo Is an oxainole of a new

Change of habits and oonsoquent uso or disuse
produce changes. The powerless wings of the
tamed duck are dne to the faet that it does not
need to fly to obtain food. A tamo duek lost Ita
legs when young, so It learned to uso its wings,
and could loam to fly much more readily than
Its oompanlons. There is no doubt that If any

The speaker concluded with tho argument,
which, he said, was clear, that Interbreeding
must necessarily and did intensify variation.

an Interest In large estates In the Hawaiian
Islands, and has retalnod a Chicago law firm
to prosecute her claim. It Is based on her
blood relationship to John Young, who married
Into the royal family of tho Islands, .became
Oovernor of Hawaii and grandfather ot the
lato Queen Emma,
About 1789, John Toang. boatswain ot the
ship Eleanor, Capt Motoalf. sailed from Cape
Cod. A year later she dropped anohor at
Owhyhee, and. after trading with the natives
for a few days, she went to Mawhoo, another of
the Hawaiian group. While at anohor thore
two nntlvo chiefs swam to the Eleanor one
night and stole a email boat whloh floated
astern ot tbe ship, and In whloh was a sailor
who had fallen asleep. The chiefs pushed the
, boat ashore, where they murdered the sailor.
Thny burned the boat to obtain the nails In It,
which were almost Invaluable to them for tho
purpose of making fishhooks.
Capt. Motcalf oflorod a reward for the return
of the sailor's body and any part of tho boat.
This brought to tho vessol mnny canoe loads of
natives boaring the remains ot the sailor, and
bringing produce for purposes of trade. Many
oamo through curiosity. Capt. Metcalt gath
ered all the canoes on one side of the vossel.
and thon. suddonly running; out tho guns,

to havo rovongo. A high ehlof. Kameolniokle,
wont nboaid tbo consort with several men. with
apparently penceablo Intentions. Watching
their opportunity they seized young Motcalf
and throw him overboard, whoro he was
drowned. All the snllors, except one named
Henry Davis, were killed with clubs. Davis wss
carried ashore, b.tdly wounded, to bo burned as a
sacrifice. A day later the Eloanor sailed from
Karaknkooa Bay. accidentally loaving on shore
John Young, tlio boatswain. Discovering this,
Capt. Motcalf stopped the vessol about two
mllos from shore, where ho waltod for two days
signalling for Young. Young and Davis would
havo boen killed bad Itnot boon that Koanaoha.
a high lady, fell in love with Young, and by hor
Intercession with the King saved tbo lives of

renoe of tho last remnant ot tho stoat Inter.
national lawyor's Newport proporty li a tea
minder of tho lmmonso amount ot monoy
which ho maJo out of the purehaso of historic)
Oehre Polntrarm. The piece of land just sold
le situate on Lawronee and Leroy avenues, and I
contains about two acres, the purehasor being
Mr. Robert Qoolet, and tho prlco 115,000. Mr,
Ooelet alroady owns a fine estnts on Narragan
eett and Lawrence avenues and the ollffs. Cer.
tain misinformed New York and other papers
have eroneously doicrlbod Mr. Goolot's pur.
chase as a part ot the famous Ochre Toint Farm,
but It never was. It was not evon purchased by '
tho elder Lawrence, but camo Into his prwsoa.
slon by a bltof sharp work on tho part of his son,
William Beach Lawronee, Jr., who, while his
father was In Europe, had oharse of his affairs.
Ho desired to have a olear way from Ochra
Point throuch Ruaiilaa avonuo to Dellovue aveJK
nue, whloh Is tho fashionable thoroughfare-.'eCHk.
but he knew that the IltiKcles representatives Bffl
would not sell It for any such purpose, Ao w
corJtnsly he cot a third party to purohase It,
and In a low weeks had possession ot the prop
erty by transfer. After Bettlnit his roadway
through he exchanged tha remalndor for a lot
owned by tbe late Mr. Edward Ring, and It la
thla latter ploeo tbat tha Lawrence heirs havo
just sold to Mr. Uoelet. ...
The Ochre l'olnt Farm, and the final dlspoal.
Hon of it for such Immense sums ot money,
will undoubtedly form partot tbe history ol
Newport, for so fsbulous waa tho Increase la
value tbat It sounds moro like an Oriental
atory than a modern matter of fact, William.
Bench Lawrence purchased tbo farm, which
oontalned about sixty acres, In 1H30. and gave
for It tia.OOO. paying but one-sixth ot tho pur
chase money In cash, and giving a mortiraHa
for the balance. xnggeratod stories nava
been printed as to the amount realized by
Lawrence and bis heirs, hut the truo amount is
as nearly as possible $050,000. What waa tha
Ochre Point harm Is now represented by a
colony of millionaires' estates, which are un
euroasMd nrobablv In anr Dart of the world.
The first pleoeof the farm whloh Lawraneet
disposed or is that upon which Mr. Walter II.
Lewis of New York has erected a charming
eottaget. Lawrenoe sold it In 1863 tn Mr. Mar
shall Woods for $9,823. andMr.iWoods latof
o!d It to Mr. Lewis. '
The next piece sold waa to Richard M. Btalgg. mm ,-
the artist of Boston, and over the possession or-sflaKu.
this there was a legal strugirle f or twenty years. GRES
It appenrs that niter Lawronco had sold It to TV vl
Htalgg a discrepancy In tbe measurement wad $
found to Btaigg's advantage. Lawrenoe claimed 1
that this nuliillod tho deod. and the property
having rlsf n in valuo he wonted It back. Law
rence fouvht the case for twenty yeara. and
msds it tbe most celebrated suit in tne history
of tho Jurisprudence of this State. lie only gavo
up when death called him away and Sialics
won the suit, nlthough he only survlvea
Lawrence a few months. Upon Oohro
