Washington, D. C, Julv 3. It
seems tolerably certaiu that congress i
will close its present session by noon '
of Monday next, thc last of the rcgu-'

It is thought by leading members of
the house thai it will be possible to
cloic up this unfinished business by
.Saturday evening, and if thi is done
the programme will be to take a recess
until Monday at noon, that interval I
being sufficient to allow the enroll
ing of appropriation bills, and then '
to meet only for thc purpose
of signing tlie.-c bills. The
Ijropoiition lias been under con-idci-a-lion
to take a rcc"s from Saturdav
for ten davs m as to cover the con
vention period, but this has been et
:Mdc as imnracticable. It was con
cluded if a recess of that length were
to be 'taken, there would be diffi
culty in getting enough inciu-
ocrs uack' 10 naimngioii lomaKca
i;oriim in either house; that it would
be imposing unnecessary cxien&c upon
members, and thai if "congress were
to assemble after thc convention, the
seshion would be jirolonged indefinite

deemed bet to hurry through tlio ap-'
