Moore, who la well-known as a man of

1he, general council, yesterday, had
'Cter consideration the petition of the
Mississippi and Tennessee railroad to
run its line by Tennessoa street to the
levee, and along that already crowded
thoroughfare to the central landing,
and there to mako a junction with
the other roa-Js. We trusi the
general council will never consent
to thh proposal. If the Tennessee road
de3ires to get to Center landing, It can
do bo by Broadway and Walnut streets,
where It can units with the Charleston
road, and by way of Washington street
reach the desired Laveu. And even this
privilege shored not be granted unless
the proper, guarantees are given that, a
union 'jeput will be built within one year
from the date of the contract. Aa we eome
time ago said,it will not do for Memphis
to ruin her wharf for the sake of railroad
junction, and she should be warned by
the fate of New Orleans. She should
never allow a foot of her landing to be

The latest .artioulars.of the massacre
of Caster nd his command by the Sioux
ludloa, are to the effect that the gal
lant officer, perhaps smarting under the
iujistiee to which he was subjected in
Washington, attacked the Indians
rashly, without making adequate pro
vision for defeat and in opposition to the
line of procedure determined on in
council with Generals Terry and Gib
bon. He divided a command already
too weak to attack the Indians success
fully en masse, and without tho sup
port of Gibbon's column. An "In
dian figuter," as the phrase is
In the army, of enviable experience
and notoriety, he trusted too much
to his own command, and built too
much on previous tuccesses. However,
na General Terry says, he has paid the
penalty of h!s rashness, and, he might
have added, that ho and the gallant fel
lows who fell with him have paid the
penalty of the extortions, exactions and
murders perpetrated upn the Indians
by the employes of the government.
Strange, that with the experience of
England in Canada, and after one hun
dred yeats, we have only succeeded in
one decent and chrietian-like attempt to
do for the Indians anything like jmtice.
But this la no time for wpinings. So far
has the unchristian method been pur
sued, we presume, as General Sherman
says, there is nothing now for it but ex
termination. This laU brave stand by
the Indian has doomed him to destruction.

"8 't OperationB. Vfhile at the
"otho thoRorobud I eubmitted my
plan lo. General Gibbon and to General
Custer. They approved it hcartiiy. It
wssjthat Custer with his whole regiment,
should move up the Rs3ebud till he
should meet a trail, which Reno bad
discovered a few days before, but that
he should not follow It directly to the
Utile Bip: Horn; that he -should send
Bccut-i over It and keep his main force
further to the S3uth, so as to prevent the
Indians from slipping In between him
self and the mountains. He was also to
examine tho headwaters of Tul
locii'a creek na he psstd it, and
to send me word f what
he found there, A scout Wa3 fun.hed
htm .or the purpose of crossing the coun
try, which he calculated It would take
Gibbon's column until the tweniy-slsth
to reach the mouth ol the Bittlo Sij?
Horn, and that the wide ntteep which I
had proposed Cuctet-should make would
require so much time that Gibbon would
be able to co-operate with him in aU
tackisg any Indians that might ba
foand on that stream. I asked General
Caster how long his marches would be,
and he said that they would at first be
about thirty miles a day. Measurements
were made and calculations based on
that rato of progeas. I talked with him
about his Btrengtb, and at one time sug
gested that perhaps it would be well for
me to take Gibbon's cavalry and go
with him. To this suggestion he replied,
that without reference to the command,
he would prefer his own regiment alone,
as a homogeniona body, a much could
be done witd .It as with the two com
bined, and expressed the utmost confi
dence that he nad all the force ha wdu!d
need, and I shared his confidence.
Ths plan adopted wac the only one
which promised to bring the infantry
into action, and I desired to make sura
of things by nettinc ud eVerv avallnhln
. I offered Custer the battery of
Gauline guns, but hedeclinsd It. t-.y.nc

strong enough without it. The move

I can get for the cavalry. I ousjht to
have a larger mounted force than I now
have, but this I fear cannot be obtained.
I hear nothing of General Crook'a ope
rations." A second dispatch from General Ter
ry to General Sheridan, of the same
date, says: "On the evening of the
twenty-eighth we commenced moving
down with the wounded, but we were
only able to get on four miles, as our
hand-litters did not answer tho purpose.
The mule-litters did excellently well,
but they were insufflcient in number.
The twenty-ninth, therefore, was spent
in making a fall supply of them. On
the evening of the twenty-ninth we
started again, and at two o'clock in the
morning the wounded were placed on
board of tha steamer at the mouth of
Little Big Horn. On the afternoon of
the thirtieth they were brought down to
the depot on the Yellowstone river, and
to-morrow they will be sent by steamer
to Fort Lincoln, and with them one of
my aids, Captain B. W. Smith. I have
brought down the troops to the same
point. They arrived to-night. They
need refitting, particularly in tho matter
of transportation, before starting again.
Al tough I had on the steamer a good
supply of subsistence and forage, there
are other things we need, and I should
hesitate to trust tho boat again on Big
Horn. Colonel Sheridan's dispatches,
informing me of the reported gathering
of Indians en the Rosebud, reached me
after I came down here. I hear nothing
of General Crook's movements. Atleast
one hundred horses are needed to re
mount the cavalry-men which wo have

lorm auopicu contained the most solemn
assurances of reform. It was the play
ol jiajruu, wiin me cuaracter or ".Ham

Governor Tilden, thb ring breaker, the
friend of tha whole people, the states
man who reduced the expendlturrn pf
the State government of Kew York
iromfcixteen mdnon dollars to eight
million, and Governor Hendricks, were
unanimously nominated upon a sound
platform. The Dsmocratio candidates
in themselves guarantee an honest and
economical administration of the gov
ernment. The voter en form his judg
ment upon their past records alone. The
p.atronn is simply indicative of those
they are td make In Washington. It
speaks thB purpose of the Democratic
party to have honesty and capacity
in the .publio qervice. It assures the
world tnat plundering is to cease, and
tho plunderers are to bo driven from
power. The characters of Tilden and
Hendricks, made through a long series
of years, lurnish conclusive evidence
that there is no idle assurance of reform,
but that it is just as certain to come as
they are to bo sleeted. Contrast the op
posite tickofc Hayes and Wheeler.

Excuses for their removal will be readi
ly found. Some will have talked dis
respectfully of General Grant, others of
General Babcock, and others will have
failed to abuse the ex-secretary. They
will all go out. How can the people ex
pect an honest and aa economical gov
ernment whtre no office-holder can re
tain his position if he aids or even sym-.
pathizes in the detection and punish
ment of theft and corruption in high
places? This is the cae uuder Grant,
just upon the eve of a President itd can

Henderson took hia place because
he said the avenues of corruption led to
tho White House. Within a week or so
General Babcock, a member of the
President's household, was Indicted.
Secretary Bristow, Treasurer New and
Solicitor Buford Wilson find their posi
tions unpletsmt, and resign. Numbers'
of smaller officials are removed. All
because they were impressed with tbe
idea that we should have honesty In tho
government. This 13 the Republican
record made upon the eve of election.
The promise of reform is certain not to
be carried out with echsnoE, isaocoeir,
Blair, Belknap, Robeson and Boss
Shepherd the Radical leaders. The con
test netween me ticsets is too great to
be overlooked. Statesmen against me
diocrity; reformers; against these who
never raised their voices again t cor
ruption. It is, therefore, evident that
the Democrats will succeed. In con
gress, where Tilden had few friends be
fore his nomination, it is universally
conceded now that hia was, of all othera,
the bast nomination that could hava
been made. Members from all parts of
the country give assurances of hia
Btrength. The Germans, who favor an
honest government ana nouest money,
are very generally for the ticket. It ia
thought now that Pennsylvania, Wis
consin, New Hampshire and Massachu
setts will be carried. The Tennessee
membersare convinced that the Democ
racy nave acted wiaeiy and wen.
There is no bickering, no heart-
burninsr. no dissension. The ranks are
closed up, and an unfaltering lino is pre
sented from Maine to Georgia, from the
Atlantic to the Pacifis. Everything
augurs success1. So much for the Pres
idential outlook. Congress has not been
remiss In its duly to the oountry. Six
ty-four million or dollars saved to the
nppiopriatiou bills is a record on which
Democratic congressmen can face their
constituents. The tax-payer can see
economy and reform In that alone. Ho
can do more; he can feel it. It will
save Tennessee nearly two millions.
Such saving adds to the general prosper
ity. I.is a sum equal to the uauKlng
capital of Memphis. It Is a larger one
than the interest on the public debt of
theJState. But for the filibustering of
the Rupublicatis to-day, tne reeu option
clause of ths resumption act would have
been repealed by the Democratic house.
It will be before th.s reaches your read
ers. It was a fraud upon tbe people,
was so intended, and has so operated.
It has destroyed confidence, has cauped
legal-tender notes to be hoarded, and, in
effect, has paralyzed all the industries of

Air. Morrill I Me j said a conference
committee had come to be the mere will
of one house of congress, and only one.
On such ground the conference was im
practicable, because their could be but
one oldo to- the cmestlcrn. Aajong as the
house insisted only, the Sonata m'iet
consent to a conference, but when the
houso got eo fr as to adhere, It would be
revolution, absolute revolution, a den
1 ance of lawi and that means revolution
in this ooiintfy: The senate Conference
had met the house half way, and if any
more could be done consistent with the
integrity of the senate, he wculd be clad
if simo one here or elsewhere would pro
claim it. Tne senate committee naa
met the house half way, and agreed to a
reduction of sixty thousand dollars in
the force of the civil service, believing
mac it was hotter mac tne civil service
should either somewhat than to have an
important appropriation bill fail. But
this proposition was absolutely rejected
by the houe. The whole amount to be
saved by reducing the clerks' salaries, as
proposed by me mouse, would not exceed
two hundred and fifty or three hundred
Senator V7indom, a member of the
committee on appropriations, said that,
after a careful calculation, it had been
found that the saving would be but a
litUo over ten thousand dollars. It wad
not the amount involved so much as it
was. the nrincinle of coercinc the senate
to change the law.
Senator -Edmunds That is all they
Senator Morrill, resuming, said that it
was not on the principle of just economy
that this thing was done by tho house.
It could not be made apparent here or
anywhere else, that there was any ne
cessity or justice in the attempt to raid
qn tbo clerks iu the departments. It
was too insignificant altogether for the
consideration of statesmanship. The
principle which laid behind this action
of the house of representatives covered
the whole field of legislation and anni
hilated the senate of the United States.
The house aud senate were not dividing
upon the question of clerk' salaries, but
upon tho general power undertaken by
the house to be exercised over the sen
ate. It had been claimed
that, the house had reduced tbe appro-
firiattons, as compared with the bills of
sst year, to the extent of S39.000.000,
but there was a deficiency bill ol $4 000,-
000, which had been counted in the $39,
000.000, and had no business thero. The
sonata committee on appropriations had
reduced the appropriations, as compared
with tbe bills ol last year, to the extent
of $22,000,000, and in the last three
years the senate had reduced these
bills to the extent of $33,-
000,000. Ssnator Morrill then ar
gued that the house had appropriated
tho unexpended balances without men
tioning tho amount, and he believed the
balances amounted o about So.OOO.OOO.
Add to this the deficiency bill of $4,000,
000, and it woul'd be seen that the house
had reduced tue appropriations to the
extent of $30,000,000 only; and as the
senate committee on appropriations bad
reduced them to the extent of $22,000,
000, the difference between the two
houses was only 8,000,000.
Tho senator then proceeded to show
how this eight million dollars was made
up. It was shown that it was all due to
omitting necessary appropriations, such
as those for the court of claims, for pub
lio buildings, for tbe naval service, and
for other sundry expenses, lie predict
ed that tho present clipping would re
sult in a large deficiency bill for the
present year. Any one could be eco
nomical by omitting necessary service.
He claimed that in every case where
the house had a right to a judgment on
the amount of appropriations, the sen
ate had deferred to tbe house; but in the
appropriations provided for by lw, the-
senate had refused to agree that the
house should arbitrarily fix the amount
of the appropriations. The senate stood
on its constitutional right.
Senator Morton add leased me senate,
claiming that the attitude of the house
was revolutionary and nullifying. He
said that if either house said to the
other, "Repeal this obnoxious statute or
we will stop the working of. the govern
ment," such a proposition was revolu
tionary, and was just analogous to South
Carolina in nullification times. He ap
pealed to the senators to stand firm for
the independence 01 tneir nouse, ior 11
they yielded it would be the end of a
government by the two houses. He
held that if either house inserted new
legislation in an appropriation which was
objected to by the other, it was the duty
of the house proposing tho change to re-,
cede; otherwise one houso can nullify a
Senator Thurman replied with great
warmth. He claimed that there was
neither nullification or dictation
in tho action of the house. He
could conceive acts where the house
would have a perfect right to say to the
senate, "Take one-half of tbe appropria
tion asked for tho army or navy, or let
the appropriation fail altogether." Nul
lification " was like a good many other
terms now flaunted in tbe face of the
people full of sound and fun, and meant
nothing, wnat was tne use 01 taiEing
a3 if we stood upon a volcano? No one
bad aright to suppose that one house of
congress was less patriotic than tho
other. He then referred to the remarks
of Senator Morrill, aud eaid he must
say there wai something of vehemence
and pasdon in bis manner this morning
which did not look like a peace confer-
ence, aua wnen it wes rouowea up oy a
talk about nullification he did not undei
stand tbe scene enacted here to-day.
Senator Logan said he agreed with
ho seMatcr ,';?m Indiana Morton that
tho action, of orl8 cv, of congiessin
Saying it Would not agree to trio
prialion bills iinlesfl th other would
agree to chinge a ce?tc!t: law,
was both nullification and revolu
tion. Ho denied that the house had
the solo right to originate appropriation
bills, and said that if the senate should
put upon an appropriation bill, any leg
lslation which did not meet with the' ar
sent of the. house of representatives ba
would withdraw it. The action of the
house of .representatives in the present
case was to make a little canitai hanrA
the country,- and he Lcgn wou'd stay
herenntil tue expiration of his term of
service before he would agree to tho
propooition demanded with a hand at
The motion of Senator Morrill to grant
a new conference askdd for by the hcd3e
was agreed to, and the chair appointed
Senators Wlndom, Allison and Bayard
as members of the committee on the
part of the senate. .
Upon motion of Senator Windom, the
senate Insisted upon its amendments to
the sundry civil appropriation bill,
which was agreed to.
'For the conference asked by the house,
the chair appointed aa members of
tbe oommittee on the part of the senate,
Wlndom, Mortsn and Thnrman.

The Senate then tesumed the consid
eration of articles of impeachment
against Mr. Belknap, late secretary of
Mr. Carpenter, counsel for ac
cused, said on yesterday they declined
to cross-examine ths witnesses, bec!au30
they expected them to leave the whole
matter in the hands of the managers.
The expsrience of one day had satisfied
tbe defensa that it would not be safe to
do so. The reason they deollned yester
day to cross-examine was, that they
feared any such exaiSinittioa of wit
nesses by the defense might look as if
they had lost confidence in ths nolnt
raised by them and that the accused
Could not ba convicted, two-thirds of the

asked permission to cro?a-examino
General Irwin M'Dowell. He was then
recalled and cross examined by Mr.
Carpenter. He testified that it would be
the duty of an officer of the irmy to an-
r sucn questions bsiore a congress

service, but it would hoi hisi4y 10
volunteer such information. vviwS83
met General Belknap" at his house, and
had some conversation With him In re
lation to the prices charged by post
traders, and was directed by General
Belknap to draw up an order to meet
the ease. Witness did so, and thinks it
would hSvo been effectual if it had been
carried out. Witness thought it would
have 028(1 more eneclual if the post
trader had resided at his place of busi
ness Instead of at New York. Witness
identified a letter written by himself to
the secretary, inclosing a letter written
by Whitelaw Reid. Counsel offered
them only for identification, and de
clined to put them in evidence at ores
ent. The managers demanded the right
to examine the letters, or they should
object to tneir luture introduction.
Mr. Carponter allowed the managers
to examine the letters privately.
The witness said that bo had known
the secretary of war for Some years, even
before he was made secretary of war.
Question What has been his charac
ter as secratary of war? Answer So far
as it has como within my knowledge,
he has been active, energetic and faithful-

Charles F. Emery, of Illinois, testified
that he was a banker, and received a
certificate of deposit for fifteen hundred
dollars from W. W. Belknap, to be In
vested in real estate mortgages; witness
invested It for three years on December
21, 1871; when it matured it was re
newed for three years more by the party
wh borrowed the money; at tbe second
investment the noto was assigned to
Mrs. A. T. Belknap, and the loan made
