Washington special referring to the
chango on the senate committees, says
Senator Logan is placed second on tho mil
itary committee, with a view to being
chairman whon Wilson resigns. Two
committes wero given to the Democrats,
Instead of ono ; tho one tboy had was pri

besides, is engrossed bills. At the Domo
cratlo caucus Ttiurman was selected chair
man of tho first, and Caiserly of the sec
ond, A communication was sent to the
Liberal Republicans informing them of
vacancies the Republicans bad left, and of
the fact that tho Llborals and Democrats
bad been placed on tho same footing, and
asking if thy, (the Liberals), wished to be
so considered. Sumner replied
that ho intended to deoline
all committee lorvlca. Rice laid be would
act with Democrats banceforth. Tipton
was understood to accopt the lituation.
Schurc did not desire to bo considered In.
the matter. He wus informed that tho
caucus under tho circumstances wished
blm to remain on foreign relations, and
the minority would be satisfied to leave
their intrests therein in his hands, as bis
views of a foreign policy were understood
to coincide with their own. Caaserly

ship of the now committee given to Dem
ocrats. Fenton will be retired from the
llnance, and Iiayard left there. Sherman
will bo on tho judiciary. Trumbull will
go to the foot of privileges and elections.
Tipton will remain on public lands, but
goes to the foot. Ex-Speaker Orr of
South Carolina, received his appointment
as mlnlstar to Russia, without solicitation
either on his own part or that of bis
friondr, and will receive tho first newi
through tho papers. The appointment
gives general satisfaction, and is accepted

Wabiunotok, Dec. C Attorney Gen
eral Williams has written to Governor
Scott of South Carolina, regarding IboKu-
klux prlionors, on which he says: "In my
udgemcnt, it is not only impracticable, but
mpropcr to grant indiscriminate pardon
to citizens of York and Chester counties,
who have been convicted of violating
the enforcement act, or to any person de
scribed only by tho locality in which they
reside, or designated as u class of offenders
against the laws of the United States.
A scparato application for pardon should
bo mudo on behalf of each of laid persons,
stating substantially tho circumstances of
tho crime and conviction. Whon such an
application is mudo out, tho president can
consider it as favorable r.s his sensoof just-

Mr. Dawes, from the committee on
ways and means, reported a bit abolishing
the offices of assessor and aasistint assessor
of internal revenue, and tramfrrlng their
duties to collectors and deputj collectors.
Alter the bill was read Mr. Dawes of
ferred an amendment fixing be time it
should go into operation on tbetst of July
He proceoded to explain the bil He said
that the law of tbe Cth of Jun, 1872, di
rected the commissioner or intrnal rev
enue to reduce, on or before thditof Jan
uary next, tho whole number ofcollection
districts to 80, and to diicbargiall collec.
ton and assessors except one 1 each of
thoso 80 districts. The bill nw propos
od, was a substitute for that provision, be.
cause it was evident that thn rduotlon of
collection districts to one-lhirdof the ex
isting numbar, would enlarge ae area of
them three-fold; and would, wth a dimin
ished number of officers, presot too great
a temptation to frauds upon pvenuo. By
passaro of this bill, the svings which
would bo effected over the 4an providod
by law In June last, wouli'bo $1,700,000,
and over tbe existing sysUn,300 ,000,
Mr. Myers of Ponnsylunia, called at
tention to the fact that this bill would
turn out of offlcn assessed, men who bad
tbe most administrative uperlonce in con
nection with internal re'entis, and retain
II the collectors. He thouglt the govern
ment should be authorized t) select men
from both classes of official, and there
fore he gave notice an ameidment which
be would offer, legislating jut of office the
assessors and collectors, aid providing for
tbe subsequently appointment of tew col
lectors. This, be said, would give the de
partment a chance to select its best offi
cials. Mr. Dawes moved the previous
question, under operation of wiich tho
amendments were agreed to, filing tbe
time for the bill to go into operation
July 1, 1873, and requiring the ctllectors
to give additional bonds for their new
duties, andjth bille passed. Adjourned
