SENATOR CONKLINO DENIES
OWNING CREDIT MOUI
CALDWELL ASKS TO HAVE
THE REPORT ON HIS
ANTICIPATES ITS MEANING
AND WILL RESIGN.
SENATOR PATTERSON ADMITS
UK PURCJUASBD STOCK UV
THE MISSOURI INVESTIGATION
TO UK REPEATED.
Waiiiinutox, V, C, Feb. 11. At tbo
iltting of the lonnte committee thit morn
ing, Sonator Couklitig denied that be own
ed in any way itock of tbo CteJIt Mobil
ler, or Union Pacitic railroad.
AN ALJODBNID CAL'CLi
Of republican lonator to-day, agreed
upon a programme of buiincai for the
remainder of the union. Appropriation
lllli, and tucb ai are now on tbo calender,
are to have preference, and all otberi are
to tako their chance, lteporti on Uei
tlom of privilege, like the Louiilaua and
Kaniai tnatleri will not, of courie, come
within the rcitrictiva rule.
At the request of Senator Caldwell the
onato committee deferred the premuta
tion of their report of hit caie till bit
couniel returned from Philadelphia. It
ii currently reported that CaUwell in-
tendi to reilgn, apprehending that the re
port will recommend bii eipulilon, or at
Wait contain! a very aevero ceniure
amounting in effect to tuch recommenda
tion. The belief that tbo report will rec
ommend a severe ceniure leemi to be well
founded. The Louiiiana matter will re
main under consideration, probably four
or flvedayi longer.
Information geachei here from Bolton
ilating the lower branch of the legislature
will cencur in the aetioa of the senate In
fixing March 11, as the day when tb
legislature will proceed to the election of
a United States senator.
Went before tbe senate Credit Mobllier
committee to-dy and read a written
statement which was greatly opposite to
his testimony before tbe bouie committee.
Be admiU now that he did purchase stock
of Amos, but says he believed at the time
and tilll Terr recently, that it was
Union Pacific railroad stock. Ho is in
formed that Morton, Bliis & Co., ban
kers in New York, hold for him tbe
stock, which Credit Mobilier. He
says that he was simply wroug in bis
former teetimony, and was mistaken in
hiiVatemenu. The statement of Antei,
he iayi, is entirely correct.
Sr. Louis, Feb. 11. An animated dli-
cuuion took place in the lower bouia to
day, on tbo minority report of tbe inveiti
gating committee lubmlttod yeiterday, by
Mr. Bell, one of tbe committee, lupport-
ed tbo majority .rort, and claimed that
not a breath of suspicion attached either
to Bogy, Blair or l'belpi.
Mr. Kennctt, as a frlond of Col. Bogy,
would not sustain tbe majority report.
He was unwilling Col. Bogy bbould go to
Washington with tbo least suspicion rett
ing upon him. Tbe public be laid are not
atistled with tbe Inveitigatlon, and injui
tice to Mr. Bogy, tbe committoa should
reopen tbe Investigation.
Mr. Peen offered a resolution to recom
mit the majority report to the committee,
with Instructions to ascertain whether
there ii any evidonco to show that Col.
Bogy used money or any other improper
ieQuence to accomplish bis elcctlou, aud
whether any member of the legislature it
guilty of having been itiQuenced, by
money or otherwise, improperly in tbe
senatorial conteit, to report on tbe 20th
Inst. Mr. Peers said he deiired the
evidonco should bear directly upon Mr.
Bogy's acts in tbe senatorial contest, and
the examination bo confined to that point.
This resolution wai finally amended to
provide for tbe printing of tbe majority
and minority reports, aud further discus
sion of the matter will bo postponed till
A. M. York, B. F. Simpion, Frank Ba
con and A. M. Johnson of Kansas, arrived

It it a popular error that tho custom of
sending valentines hat either died out, or
is wcll-nich in its last raspi. Tho fact ii
that thoro has nuvor boon a greater do
mand for them throughout tho country
than this season. It is true that valen
tines havo sountinic grown Intj'disuso in
this city, but this is ascribed by the deal
ers chiefly to tbo fact of tho unpopularity
attained by the valentines dubbed "comic,''
but in reality disgustingly coarse. This
has been perceived, and this year an eflort
has been made to establish a higuer
order of comic valentines thoio
which, whilo affording amusement
by the boldness of the caricature, yet cm
body some point. For initancu, "After
Marriago" represent! a miserable man,
whole body ii composed of unpaid bills,
whilo "For tho Highest Bidder'1 cunningly
portrays a clrl of tho period, who is liter
ally all heart, over which is suspended the
hammer of tbe auctioneer. In numerous
OtUei ln.tne this felicity uf dcvloa. ti
carried on, and it is to bo presumed these
now productions will tend to ao away with
the unfavorable impression produced by
tho grotesquo and pointless drawings with
which tho public has been too familiar.
Ono houto in this city has disposed of
two millions of this stylo or Valentino,
the price being seventy-five cents per
cross bv wholesale The custom of tell
ing valentines on commission is being
discardod, and "cash only " is now ac
ccptcd. This is n great advantage both
to tbo dealer and manufacturer, and will
tend indirectly to tho complete rc-estat-lithment
of the custom of lending valen
tine!. "When told by commission, the
dealer return! those not disposed of to
tho manufacturer, who in all probability
lendi him tbo same valentinoi the neit
year; whereas wben soiling by cash tbe
manufacturer Is constantly stimulated to
tVfihendeavcrs, and thetrtble, It is claim
ed, grows better year after year. This
naturally "has its effect upon the public,
over whom novelty is all-powerful, aud
the cut torn stands a much better cbanco of

chased generally range from five cents to
$5, tho very ardent lover may etpond his
dovotlou on ono costing as much a $H0.
Tho miracles of dainty gilding and cun
ning Inco-work which are now being ex
hibited are likely to itrlke torror to the
hearts of the economical. No costly ion

substantial things, in caso of nn emer

pootry as to bo utterly incapablo of hold
While thoto articles aro mostly nf do
mestic manufacture, the umtorial Is im
ported. Thli odds a pleasing interest to
tbo gift, and a considerable item to tbn
price. The season lasts from February
lit to tbo 20th, but orders ara frequently
taken as early as Soptemhcr, and the
largo houses tend out canvassers to tako
orders monthi beforehand. The pcoplo
who pay the highest prices for theso ar
ticles are tho Southerners, who cling to
old customs far moro ponlitently than in
habitants of tho North.
