tbe flrtt volume of the Grand Duke Alex

world. Thli volume It exclusively devo

adventure in the United State. Tbo
above-mentioned corritpondent writes at
followt about it :
'Thli ii certainly a very curioui work.
To judge from what I have read ol it
whether bit imperial IligbneM wrote it
himself, or whether an abler pen did it for
him tbe book ii intonieiy interesting.
Tbe Orand Duke teyi that hit reception
in Mew York elmoit itupitlid him. Up
to tbe latt moment be had no thought
that to brilliant an ovation would be ten
dered In Republican America to tbe ton of
a monarch. Ue wa very weak when, be
landed in Mew York, and during bit pro-
?;reit up Broadway frequently felt llko
tinting. Hut everybody wa to kind to
him that be triod to look pleated a he
wai in bit heart of boarti. Broadway,
be ibvi, in hit opinion, ii the finest
thoroughfare in tho world, became every
thing there, houiat, ahopa, and the people,
look not monotenoui, but gay, lively, and
bright. What amused blm perhaps more
than anything else was that' the bandi,
upon catobing eight of him, ttruck up,
not the Ituaitan aathem. but the so-
called "Dirge of St. Catherine." which
waa played ia Hustle ,only at tba funerals
of member' of tha imperial family I Tbe
cheers of the people were more deafening
than any be heard ia Europe, from which
he playfully conclude tbat lung disease
cannot be very prevalent in the new
world. As to thetoldlery, the varttty of

x asktu tor tne peculiar ana oi America,
and at tha hotel they could not give me
any. Their cook ware Italian and
French. Tbe landlord shrugged bis

West, however, my desire waa at once
gratified. 1 dined one day on baked pork
and beans, a vary, palatable dish, which
would certainly bear traniplantlng to

"American manner, tbe Grand Duke
thinks, are a little awkward and angular.'-

Mr. Gorton opposed a ipeody return to

with the interest of the producing cleat

UOUSK.
Mr. McCnary, chairman of the on
Railway! and Canali. lubmitted to the
Houte of Representatives the report on
tbe House bill to regulate commerce by
rail roads among the states. The report
says that the 'ommittee have had tho
same under consideration and reported
the accompanying amendment thereto, in
tbe nature of a lubttitute, and recom
mended itt pttsage. In the judgment of
the committee thu measure of legislation
now proposed, is so important at to make
E roper statement of tbe report to the
ioute of tome of the principal
grounds which it is believed not only
to Justify, but to demand its adoption
without repealing in details provisions of
the bill; til II enough for the present pur
pose to tar that iti 'aJierU'we right aad
WarifrerJvoagreii to regulate inter-state
mwuiwi m one ot me rvKUUont there
of; that the charges of persons engaged in
such commerce for carrying freight and
passengers, shall in all case be Tair and
reasonable; of detail of tbo bill we don't
speak of here,' because these can
well enough be discusied elsewhere.
Suflice it to lay tbat their pur
pose is, and we think tbem well adapt
ed to it, to adopt and enforce, under suit
able penalties at one of tbe rulet and res-
lationi concerning tbe commerce carried
on by railroada 'among tho itatei the
taking of-no more ' than' fair, reasonable
ton or compensation, nerore any discus
sion ot details, it is neceasarv to consider
and determine whether tbe end thus soushl
can tie obtained by a constitutional act of
congress end wbalber it 11 expedient.
mt. jaaynara iron me uommittee on
llule reported a new rule providing tbat
all motions to luipend tbe rules axcept to
go into committee ot tbe whole iball. be

Baa .. m a

a an Infringement on tbe constitutional
rights of the minority, which would be
thus cut oQ' from power to bave a
