Washington, March 10. There was a
rumof In the Sonato today that President
Harrison had told a Senatorial caller thnt
he regretted his inability to Bond in hie
Important nominations fast enough to
permit of an adjournment this week.
Conurwation of this report could not be
gained, but the opinion was quilo general
among the Senators that owing to tho
President's delay adjournment is now not
likely to bo reached until near the end of
the mouth. A few of the Senators are
glad that this is so, but s majority
regret tholr detention here. Those
who are not anxious to get away
are determined to have a discussion of
the Southern outrage question, and in
order to bring this about they must firet
how that the Sennto hns tho constitu
tional right to transact legidatlvo business
at a called session. This question, it
seems, lias never been satisfactorily an
swered, and it is thought that now is a
good timo to reach a decision. Loading
Senators on both sides of the chamber dif

present a united front in opposition, be
cause they do not want tho Texas outrage

JEFF. DAVIS'S LETTER
In Regard to the Recent Charges Against
tho Ex-Confederate OinoUls.
Atlanta, Go.,. March 20. Jefferson
Davis has written a letter to tho He v. J.
Williuiu Jones, formerly of Richmond,
who Is well known as secretary of the
Georgia Historical Society. The letter was
in answer to one sent him by Mr. Jones,
inclosing the following paragraph from the
Philadelphia I'mlot rimi:
"It is a late but somewhat singular rev
elation that the leaders of the Into Confed
eracy in the South, now happily buried
and much mourned, proponed amongother
novelties to establish a church In connec
tion with the State Tho story rests upou
tho authority of the Ilev. Dr. McForran, a
leading Methodist divine, who died lately
in Nashville, Tenn. It was his Inference,
he said, from all he gathered while serving
as Chaplain hi the Southern army, and so
Mrsuiided was ho of the correctness of his
Inference that ho was enabled thereby to
bear tho result of the great conquest with
Mr. Davis, In Ids reply, dated March 10,
says: "1 havo received yours of the loth
instant, with the inclosed slip. Tho story
referred to is not only untrue, but absurd.
The Constitution of the Confederate States
differed from that of the United Slates by
having in its preamble a recognition of the
Supreme lteing and invoking the favor
and guidance of Almighty (iod, and in
Section D, of the first article, it Mid: 'Con
gress shall muke no luw resecting an
establish incut of religion or prohibiting the
free exerciso thereof.' So such prohibi
tion was contained in tho Constitution of
tho United States originally adopted, but
the same prohibition was msdo as an
amendment. The original olwicrvaiico of
the spirit and letter of tho Constitution by
the Confederate Stales Government was so
marked a feature as never to have been
denied by its worst enemies. Hut, if these
silly slanders be worthy of sny investiga
tion, it may tie arked, what church or sect
was to constitute tho establishment? Was
it to be the largest church in tho Confed
eracy? Then that, 1 suppose, was tho
Methodist Church South.
"And would this have been such a
grievance to the author of the story as to
reconcile biin to the downfull of tho Con
federacy? Was the church to lie selected
indicated by the comosition of the chosen
ollicers of the Confederate Government
and tho counselors directing its policy?
If so, how docs tho mutter stand?
"Tho President was an Episcopalian,
tho Vice-President a Presbyterian, the
Secretary of Slate a Hebrew, the Secretary
ol tho Treasury an Episcopalian, tho Sec
retary of War a Presbyterian, tho Secre
tary of the Navy a Catholic, tho Post-master-
ieneral a Methodist and tho Attorney-General
a Kiptist, or at dillerent
times s mciiibcrof sll those denominations
except tho Calholic Hence appears the
alsoirdity of the supposition that a church
entublishment was contemplated, or, if so,
was s poasiblo schievomctit."

Therefore, w hen I chanced to meet Gen.

him what ho thought, as a Southern man
