I ho senato by u voto of 37 to 13 passed
mo resolution uirectlng tho secretary of
war to report as to tho expediency of set
ung upuri n portion of tho island of
Mackinaw for ft public park.
On motion of Sonator Chandlortho sec
retary of tho troasury was requested to

Iho senato resumod consideration of
tho caso of Caldwoll,
In tho statomont road ho puts his de
fence upon thrco grounds: First tho olec
tlon of a senator, lil;o tho enactment of a
aw, Is an act of tho stato in Its soverign
capacity, and tho motives of tho members
voting cannot bo inquired into for tho
purposo of tnvalldntlntr it; second, in
udglng of tho credentials tho sonnte
cmnot add to thoso prescribed by the con
stitution, nnd in judging of returns legal
requirements cannot bo amplified , nnd in
udglng of oloctlons tho only
inflations to bo considered ure:
Wns it tho logialaturo of
thu stato that mado tho election 7 "Was It
held ut tho timo and placo ftnd in tho
manner prescribed by tho act of congrossi
and did tho cortlfled person rocolvo a ma-
orlty7 In this case thesa questions aro
all nnsworod in tho affirmative; third,
not a dollar is traced from anybody olso
to any member of tho legislature as a con-
sidoratlon for his voto.
Caldwoll conoluded as follows: "I boir,
thorororo, that sonators will stop to con
sidor well beforo committing thomselvos
to a procodent which will result In a great
wrong to mo, and way In futuro work
great Injury to others, I fully approciato

ten tnv innmborcf tho leeillature.
'Anoy tin,. jvu roriied to rely upon their

Wicked conspiracy 7 Aro thoso bold, bad
men, whoio very names aro synonlms of
crime and corruption in my own
state, to succeed, by tho force
of their falto statements. In
n bringing disgrace and ruin upon m
and tbAt, ton, bi-aauio I 'chboso to cross
their political paths, and docllnod to sub
mit to their unrighteous demand, Wbore
over my enemies could by mis
representation createprojudico against mo,
through tho nowspapors, thoy bavo turned
upon aio tho wrath of an all-poworful
press. I beg senators to reflect that it is
not alono to retain my scat in this body
that 1 navo for tho past eighteen months
been resisting wicked means of these men,
but rather to defeat them In their infa
tnous attempt to attach dlsgraco and dis
honor to my name."
Senator Carpenter said that it was with
surprlso and grief he listened to tho argu
ment of the Henator from Indiana (Mor
ton) yestcra,,. Ho had never beforo seen
tho senator, in tho warmth of a political
debate, extending his right hand to sup
port his own viows, and bringing it down
on tbo senator from Kansas, with all tho
earnestness that ho would attack a po
litical opponent. When you como to the
incro fact of money being drawn out of a
bank at J.wronit and paid to a party on
samo day, you bavo not provod that tho
money was used to bribo legislators. Tho
money may havo been expended for rail
road or other legitimate purposes. The
sonators ought to conflno thomsolTcs to tie
judicial rule of tbo testimony against
Caldwell. It was not such as would be
submitted by a court to a Jury. As to
Caldwoll's guilt, ho should voto against
tho expulsion of tho senator, and asked
senators beforo they cast their votos
to disgrace him, to at least road tho testi
mony. Ho would ask for Caldwell that
which ho would ask for any man charged
with crime; ho would ask a court to dis
flbargo its duty, no matter what might be
said by mobs outside. "Without proceed
ing further with the debate the senato
went into exocutiro session, and soon adjourned.

New Yonic, March 11. Van Sickle,

In life court of oyer and torminer to
day, when the district attorney moved tho
trial of Dlakoly for tbo murder of his
niece, Maud Morrill, his counsel asked
postponement, saying tbo accused insisted

Tho counsel for Nixon said Insanity
could not be raised in that caso.
LOUISVILLE BANK ItonDEBT.
Louisville, March 11. Other special

all the securities easily disposed of in the
east, leaving tbo stato securities scattcrod
over tho floor of tho vault. The work
was evidently done by professional burg
lars, tho most skillful and scientific
in tho business. The examination
or the vault to-day shows the fact that a
previous effort has been made to burglar
ize tbo bank. In some way an iron
wedgo was driven in the corner of the

cut through tho too. The

There are probably only ntne-tuon sisters

appreciating much of that sort of thing.
His early poverty and hard.workmg ex

From the Evansvillo Couricr.l
Sovcral days ao tho 'Courier' reporters
got on tho track of tho intended arrest of
a man in Indianapolis who is supposed to
havo foully murdered his wifo in this city
in April, 1800. We kept quiot on tho
matter, for fear that the arm cf tho law
might bo subverted in its intention, but
yesterday's Indianapolis 'Sontlnol' con
tains an account of tho arrest of tho party,
and wo transfer its article to our pages.
It says: b
" On tbo 10th day of April, 18C0, tho
headless body of a woman was found in
Evansvillo, In a lot situated on Chestnut
street, beyond Tenth. Somo boys had
been playing tnero, and discovered tbo
rvrotrudlncf from tho earth. Tliov at
oncogavo iBro...4Un, and n larce num.
nor ot porsous visited tho snot. Tho din
was partially removed, and a
human ronvi discovered.
Tho clothlnn indicated that It was that
of a female, in night clothos. as on the
breast was still a portion of tbe chomUo.
The head had been sovcred from tho body
nuu n uuwiiore 10 bo lounu. xuo body
was almost decomposed, and had doubtless
lain wfacro fcund for two months or more.
It could not havo been buried mora than
a foot doep at first, and tho spring rains
imu wumeu 11 almost uaro. tuo supposi
tion at tho time was that tho woman bad
been foully dealt with, murdered, and thnn
hastily burled ; but who sbo was, and who
tho perpetrator of tho deed was seemod
A MYbTEUY UN EXPLAINABLE
In tho absencu of tho head, which if found
would probably havo boon so decomposed
as to render identification impossible,
tho finding of tbe body croated a pro
found sensation. The .Evansvillo author
ities at once engaged earnestly In an en
deavor to solvo the mystory. A post
mortom examination was made, but of
course dovoloped nothing. Soveral wo
men, inmates of a disreputable house, near
wuuru mo ooay was louna, woro arrested
on suspicion, but afterwards discharged.
A nogro was also arrostod, wbo confestod
to burying tho body, Ho statod, on ex
amination, that be had been mot on tbo
street, somotimo preceding the dato of tbo
uorrmio discovery, by two man, who com
polled him to carry tho body of a whlto
woman, to tbo placo whoro tho ono in
question was found, and thero bury her.
Tho men wore disguised so that ho could
not toll WUO ttoOV WOre. Tho mvntnrtr
still existed, despite tho efforts to unravol
it, until yestoraay, when the allogod
