THE BUMnKIl HUIUU.!,

for the delivery of tho cu-
logns on the la to Bcnator Hiruncr,
the Senate, galleries were filled at

and 'for a wonder but very few colored

some praise, so general on occasions of
this kind, a fair estimate of Sum
ner character being given ; the orators,
no doubt, feeling that there was enough
of greatness in the dead Senator toper
mil a mention of his defects OTcr which
they threw tho mantle of charity and
all the more exUltod his virtues. Tho
bouse was crowded to excess there be
ting more, negroes prcsont than in the
Senate. The' speech" of tho day in the
House was that of Hon. L. Q. C. La-
A mar, ot Mississippi, who spoke in tones
grandly oloquont of Mr. Sumner, ami
in tho course of hi" uarks referrad
to HI magnanimous act in tho interest
of peace with regard to striking the
names of the battles in the late war
' -'from flags" and suggested) that tho
North and tho South gather up the
battlo flags of both sides, and claim
Hi? them as a oommou heritage of u com.

ceived with applause there 'uciug no

gendered by tho war or those who uct

..and its accomplishment would find the
heartiest endorsement from those who
had periled their lives in fighting Air
what they believed to bo rfclit ami

They are very wisoly waiting to see

count of their disinclination to vote as
a party for inflation or for tho wants of
the grangers although on the latter
question they have not been closely
put to tho test. The idea is suggested
of forming a third party incorporating
these two principles with some others
and it is claimed that a clean sweep of
the country can bo made. In view of

The president no longer hide him
hclf in his shell of, reserve, but talks
quite as filMy on the question of
fiuatiee as .he cs lionso. IIo believos
that a finance- till, such as he can sign,
will bo.frnr.d and that as, tie subject
had already been thoroughly discussed,
he did not think it would take much
time to ogreo ou a bill, His action on
the veto was 'based ubon the good of
tho whole country, and permanent
prosperity? -IIo, had no fears of .cri
ous pa'rly divisions on the financial
qucstiou, as the policy of the republi
can party was never to admit the pos
sibility of repudiation, and now after
tho strain of tho war was over, it was
no time to countenance any measure
ot looking towards resumption. IIo
thinks that in three years, even with
out additional legislation, lie would be
able to approximate special payment.".
Tho original kcnato bill, whhih pro
vided for free banking and redemption
would have been satisfactory to him.
IIo speaks very hopefully that is, a
great deal more than tho people feel
well, I suppouo we all should if wc were

Tho bill not bo hit' matured by tlio
Senate Finance committco'will contain
among its more important provisions
free banking and redemption. The
free bauking section will provide for a
retirement of forty per cent of legal
tenders in proportion iw the banking is
diminished to $300,000,000. It it
thought that specio resumption will &o
fixed at four years hence. The House
ennency bill will not be reported as
the Houso will in nil probability accept

There will bo somewhat of a muab-

Mortor will try to get up to day
which Senator Oontling will oppose as
he tliiuks that every day will strength
