WASHINGTON, Decamber 18.-In the
Senate, the House bill in relation to
steam boilers used on Western rivera
passed. It exempta steam tugs from cer?
tain restrictions. The Committee on
Elections made a formal report in favor
of Beating Norwood, from Georgia. Scott
nominated Gasserly aa an additional
member on the Committee on Itotronoh
nient. Aa indicating the character ol
the debate, the following from Logan is
telegraphed: Logan said it seemed to be
assumed by certain Senators that ali who
supported Trumbull's proposition were
trying to injure the Administration. He
bad no anon desire, yet he had voted foi
that proposition, and would do so again,
because ne believed it to be a proper and
a wiso measure. He understood that he
waa not in good standing with a certain
set of men, who assumed to control and
guide the party; but it mattered vor j
little to him whether he was or not. H<
was responsible to his constituents, ano
to nobody else. Those men affected tr.
be the special champions oi tho Freai
dent, bot if he (Logan) was President,
and they attempted to aid bim in th?
same way, he would think it wise to gel
rid of their assistance as soon as posai
ble. It was almost impossible to sot ai
independent part in the Senate now
?heae three or four men, perhaps five
- who undertake to manage the party, cal
a canons on any man who is disposed U
be independent, and threaten to reac
him out. For one, he would act up tc
his convictions, and run the risk of boin ?
read out. I da not believo, said Logon
that the President of the United Statei
fears investigation, bnt you havo mad?
the country believo he does. I don't be
lieve the Secretary of the Treasury fean
investigation, bot you havo made tin
o mu try believe that he does. I don*
believo that any of the departments o
the Government fear investigation, ba
you have made the country believe the]
do. As to the organisation of this oom
mittee, it is peculiur; when the Senat?
divided on this question of investigating
the publie service, twenty-four Senaten
voted for the proposition and thirty-flv<
against it; but when it comes to the ap
pointment of this committee, ssvei
. members of it are taken from the thirty
five and only oue from the twenty-four
