witness reiterated bis testimony that lie

of Credit Mobilior stock j they became
Kelly's property In 1808, wbon bo paid
for thorn ; tbe dividends witness also bold
for Kelly; bo also held for him ten shares

his bands oarly in 1808 ; altogether witness
holds forty or fifty sbaros Union l'aciflo

N. G. Ordw.iy, sorgeant-at-armi of tbo
house, was recalled and cxplalnod how
tho business of bis office was condttctod,
privato accounts boing kept with each
member, as they frequently sont drafts
No buslnosi of publio Iniportanco was
considered at tbo cabinot mooting to-daj.
Colfax inquired of Amos why bo did
not cioss-oxamlno him about tho $1,200
chock when ho gavo his testimony.
Ames "I did not want to bring it
out; wantod to lot you oil .as easy us I
could; I was in bopos it would not come-out."
Ames : "Did you get tbo $1,200?"
Colfax: "I did not."
Colfax: "Mr. Amos, in your private
memorandum book, which I hopo tho
committoo will have brought horo, have
you tho names of tho mombors of con
gress to whom you let havo stock ?"
Answer: "Yes, sir."
Question i "Did I givo you any recoipt
for this chock ?"
Answer: "No, sir. It nover belonged
Question: "Havo you ever told me,
during tho past four years, that I was
owner of this stock 7" '
Answer: "1 don t know whethor 1 did
or not; I do not understand your version
of tho olWr, ut ull ; 1 gavo you tho check
and hero Is prool of it by tho books ;
what Is Ilia use of trying to get around
it, or over it."
Colfax to tho committeo: "I repott ex
actly as 1 stated before, that 1 novur ro
ceivel dollar on any account from tho
Credit Mobilier; I never saw tbo check,
nnd don't know whethor it was signed by
O. Ames or Oakcs Amos; I could not
havo ndded to my incomu $1,200
without remembering somothing about it.
During tho whole six years ho has nover
proposed to pay mo anything, and nover
told me I was owner of tho stock. I told
Ames I would not buy in h law suit,
and that ended tbo matter between us."
Ames: "Tho check for $632 "I com
pleted your payment for stock.''
.Judgo Poland to Colfax : "Do you ad
mit that you gavo him a cheek for
Colfax : "1 suppose so; I thought at
the timo I was paying him $500 on my
purchase and interest, but did not under
stand that this completed tbo transaction.
I understood that dividends bad been
earned and were unadjusted, and would go
to make up tho balance due by me, but
did not understand that that completed
thopurcbuso; 1 do no not remember of
Arnes saying nnything about selling
bonds, when tho $500 wcro paid by
me; 1 had tbe impression that tho pro
ceeds from theso bonds, when sold, would
go to compleletbc purchase ; I supposo I
did pay Ames the C32, by a check on tbe
scrgeant-at-arms, but am confident that I
nover received any check for $1,200 from
Anie, either payable to S, C. or Schuyler
Colfax, or for any amount whatever. 1
havo never received a certificate of stock
and no proceeds from it."
Ames: "Colfax, did I did not render
you a statement of sale of bonds received
as dividends, and you gavo mo thatl$o32
check for the balance?"
Colfax; "No, sir; tbero might have
been a slip ot paper, or memorandum of
$532 due ; 1 am not certain about that."
Ames: "I ask you if 1 didn't give you
a statement showing a credit derived
from tbe sale of bonds?"
Colfax : "I deny It."
Ames: "1 am sorry to bear you."
Colfax: "You told mo somo dividends
had been carnod, but wcro unadjusted."
Ames : " If ho deuics it, nnd says he did
not, I don't want to ask him any moro
questions. That is enough for mo."
Ames further testified that ho called on
Colfnx the night beforo ho (Ames) mado
his first statement beforo tbo committee,
and asked birn (Colfax) if tbey under
stood each other. Colfax said : "You will
testify to the truth," and ho (Amos) re
plied, "Certainly, I am going to do that."
lie now supposed that Colfax had not an
idea from testimony, of course, that he
(Ames) was goine; to testify tho samo as
Colfax read from tbe testimony of Ames
nnd askod bow ho mado certain parts of
his testimony then, agreo with what ho
had testified since ?
Amos: "I havo refreshed my memory
since, front tbo books of tho sergeunt-at-arms.
1 do not think you swear hard
ennugb bore to get out of it, either ; nnd I

thony was chosen spcakor pro torn in tho
ubsonco of the vico president.
Senator Wilson introduced a bill to
authorize tho construction of a pneumatic
tube road frem Now York to Chicago.
Senator Sherman said thero was a ques
tion connected with the currency, which
it was necessary for congress to consider
at an early day. There was already a
law requiring the transfer of $25,000,000
banking capital from East and West,
which tho comptroller claimed to bo im
practicable, and there was also a question
ot the right of the secretary of the trea
sury to rei.-iue any portion of tho retired

ment to the appropriation bill, directing

all payments to any railroad company on
account of freight or transportation of any
kind to tho amount of any payment
mado by tbo United Statos for interest on
bonds of tho United States issuod to nny
such company and not reimbursed. Sen
ator Edmunds advocated the amendment
as necessary for protection to the interests
of the people, and if it violated in any
way the legal rights of railroad companies
they might seek redress through tho court
Senator Sherman cxpressod doubt as
to tbe jurisdiction of the court of claims in
Senator Edmunds then offered tho fol
lowing addition to his amendment : "Any
such company may bring suit in the court
of claims, to recover the prico of inch
freight end transportation, and in such
suits tbe rbjht of each company to recover
tbo same upon law, and tbo tacts of the
case shall bo determined, nnd either party
to tho suit may appeal to tho supreme
Senator Stevenson offered a substitute
to Edmund's amendment, directing the
president to institute suits in tho court of
claims against the Pacific railroad, to re
cover interest paid by tho United States
on its bonds issued for thu bonefit of said
road. In advocating this amendment,
Slovinion said that corporations of these
companies were gigantic powers, wurriug
upon tho rights of the government and
people, and warned them if they were not
willing in u disputed caso liko till, to sub
mit to fair adjudication, thero was a power
in the land which would riso up and put
them all under its feet.
The vico president nppointed ns con
ferees on tho part of the tenato on tbo
Vienna exposition bill, Sonators Schurz,
Harlan and Casserly.
Senator Stewart presented an amend
ment, which ho said he would oiler ot tho
proper timo, as n substitute to Edmunds'
amendment. It directs tbo attorney
genoral to cause proceedings to bo insti
tuted in tbo courts of tho United States
for tho purpose- of ascertaining if any obli
gation of tbo Union Pacific, Central
Pacific, or any otbor railroad company,
created by tho act of July 1, 1802, or act of
July 2, 18GI, in rotation to interest on

Considerable animation is displayed ln
business circlos, but transactions in the
lending articles nfcommlssion business are
restricted by Lck of tonago to New Or
leans, tho incapcity of tho railroads to the
interior of tho sonth to carry all the
freight offered, nnd tbo general scarcity of
stocks occasioned by tbo refusal of the
Illinois Central Railroad to receive any
moro freight for tbls point until the large
quantities that have accumulated along
tlio lino during tho recent ico blockads of
St. Louis lias been cleared up. A large
amount of grain nnd hay is on the way
here, enough to meet tho demand In most
articles of trade, but it seems almost Im
possible to reach ll in time to take advant
ago of tbo presont stato of tbo market.
Tho I. O. It. P.. has given notice that no
grain In bulk will bo received except that
destined for tho elovntor. This would be
both Inconvenient and expensive to most
of our merchants as they can handlo and
sack it much cheaper on tho track; tboy
complain that it is a bard matter now to
gut steamboats to take freight from tbe
wharf, and it would bo nearly out of tho
questioi. to send them to tho olevutor for
of flour, oats, corn, &c, is very
light for tho reasons ulready set forth and
prices nro very firm. Corn is unchanged
but oats havo advuncod lc on tho bushel,
