Lamar's Case to Be Dis
cussed Next Week.
Report of the Committee on Elec

I Associated Press Dispatches to the Herald 1
Washington, January 13. —In the
Senate, the bill to create and pay to
the several States and Territories and
the District of Columbia all moneys
collected under the direct tax of Au
gust, 1861, was taken up, the question
being on a verbal amendment by
Hoar, when the bill was up some
After a general debate which lasted
over an hour, Kiddleberger made a
.motion to go into executive session,
his purpose being to forward
the action on the nomination
of Lamar. The motion was lost
by a tie vote, division being upon
party lines, except that Kiddleberger
voted with tho Democrats. A few
minutes later he renewed his motion,
stating that it was his understanding
that there was an agreement that tho
Senate should go into executive ses
sion to-day. The motion was lost this
time by 20 to 20. A majority of the
Senators do not understand that there
was any agreement for an executive
session to-day, but on the contrary
that there was a tacit acquiescence
that no action should be attempted
until Monday on the Lamar matter
and Cabinet nominations.
The votes of to-day are not held to
have any significance or bearing upon
the result in the Lamar case, since
some of Lamar's friends abstained
from voting iv consequence of what
they understood to be tlie tacit un
derstanding of yesterday.
THE REVENUE QUESTION.
The direct tax bill was then laid
aside, and Vance proceeded to ad
dress the Senate on tlie resolution
offered by Brown, proposing to abolish
National revenue taxation.
Vance said that tlie lines had been
drawn closely by the President's mes
sage on the subject of surplus and
taxation. Tlie contest had to be
fought out squarely, and tho question
decided unequivocally on its merits.
The question was should taxation be
enforced for the support of the Gov
ernment or for the enrichment of pri
vate individuals. He declared that
the central theory on tariff was in
equity, and he was opposed to the
whole thing out and out. He should
not vote to put anything on the free
list tax on which was pure revenue;
he should strive earnestly to reach
taxation on the necessaries of life,
and he should discriminate against
nothing except luxuries, and in favor
of the helpless and unprotected. The
resolution was laid aside.
NEW HILLS BROUGHT UP.
Senator Plumb introduced a bill
declaring forfei'ed all lands, except
the right of way granted States to
assist railway construction; such
lands, however, to be open for settle
ment under the homestead laws.
Senator Stewart offered an amend
ment to the bill for the investment of
certain funds in the' Treasury, pro
viding that persons may deposit at
any mint or assay office gold or silver
bullion, receiving certificates therefor
in denominations of not more than
$2000 nor less than $1000.
Sherman offered an amendment to
tlie Deficiency Appropriation bill,
allowing ti ppr cent, interest from the
time the deficiency bill of last Con
gress failed to pass.
The Blair Educational bill was
taken up, and constitutional argument
made against it by Gray. After some
little debate, participated In by Gray
and George, the bill went over as un
finished business, and the Senate
adjourned until Monday.

notice or contest and filed no evi

adjournment again advocated.
Hatch rising said that in view o*
the fact that Mills had stated to
several gentlemen that there would be
no session to-morrow he would like
the vote by which the house had re
fused to adjourn over reconsidered,
but Mills interposed an objection and

A SUBMISSIVE SERVANT.
Advices state that previous to the
sailing of the Corcan embassy to the
United States the King of Corea had
received telegraphic instructions from
iho Emperor of China, conveying a
decree stating that envoys to Western
States must first ask for instruc
tions, and they will be allowed
to go after the consent
is received, which will then be
in accordance with what is proper for
a dependent state. The King, on re
ceipt of the Emperor's edict, prepared
a memorial, wherein, after acknow
ledging China's suzerainty over Corea,
he recites the facts that special per
mission was granted in tlie first in
stance to enter into a treaty with
America; that afterwards several other
nations of the west had con
cluded treaties on the basis of
the former, and that the King's
little State, anxiously considering the
situation and desirous of keeping the
treaties, had nominated Pak Chien-
Yang to ba plenipotentiary, and to
proceed as envoy to the United States
and Cho Chyenhi, plenipotentiary
and to proceed to take his residence
in the five countries of England,
France, Germany, Italy and Russia.
THE KINO THEN BEGGED
Further instructions and permission
for the vassal envoys to proceed on
their way in order to fulfill the objects
of their missions, and to be in accord
ance with the original treaties. That he
did not wait for the permission asked
is shown by the fact that on the after
noon of December 16th, a Chinese
fleet of seven vessels arrived at
Chemulpo, under command of Admi
ral Ting, just seven hours too late to
offer resistance to the exit of the mis
sion to United States.
Jho Sin Hwei, a dignitary of the
third rank, is now in possession of a
royal warrant to proceed as Ambassa
dor to the courts of Europe. He has
just sailed from Chemulpo. No prep
arations have yet been made for a dis
patch of tribute to China. The Em
bassy to China usually starts overland
for Pekin early in December.

It is generally understood that W.

Capital Punishment In Italy.
The Italian Minister of Justice,
Signor Zanardelli, has just drawn up
a new criminal code, from which
capital punishment has been omitted.
There is a good deal of speculation in
Italy as to whether the Legislature
will finally abolish the punishment of
death. Three times within the last;
twenty years the Chamber of Depu
ties has voted for its abolition; but in
each case the Senate has refused to
confirm the vote. Since King Hum
bert ascended the throne there has
not been an execution; and it ia
argued that it is absurd and
undignified to retain in the code a
penalty which is never applied. To
this it is naturally objected that King
Humbert will not live forever, that
succeeding monarchs may be leas
tender-hearted, or that some serious
outbreak of crime against the person
may render it necessary -to make an
example. It has more than ones
happened that when capital punish
ment has been abolished it has been'
found necessary to re-establish it.
This was the case not long ago in sev
eral of the Swiss cantons. —[St. James
