Toe CifTRAL Pacitic Box ds. The testi
mony before the Scuate Committee goes to
show that there has been no orer-lssue of
Government bonds to tho Central Pacific
Kallroad Company. The bonds were Issued
In accordance with tho law and the facts,
and after the opinion of Attorney General
Evarts hud been given to the effect that tho
Secretary of the Treasury could uo longer
withhold them, under section 8 of the act of
1804, authorizing the Issue of two thirds the
amount of bonds upon tho completion of tho
work In advance of the laying of the rails
It Is also shown that the Union Pacific road

alleged. In the Echo and Weber Canyons

to tho mile, In use, upon which the Unlou
Pacific company hare rccetrc 1 the full
quota of bonds, although the road Is not
built upon the approved lino of survey, and
two tunnels are still unfinished, one of which
wilt not bo completed until tho 30th of

company will have reached Ojden city with
Its completed track.
Remahkablb Operation. It Is thought
that Rev. Mr. MUburn, the blind preacher,
who went to Europe for fie purpose of re
ceiving surgical treatment for the restora
tion of his eyesight, may yet recover his
vision, at least In part. The operations to
which he has submitted and Is still to un
dergo are extraordinary In their character.
On the 9th of December last Professor
Graefe, of Berlin, cut a holo In his left eye,
inserted a book, and drew tho Iris from tho
old pupil with which to Hue a new one, and
then trimmed the edges with scissors. This
process occupied nearly five minutes. The
eye did remarkably well for about twelve
dnjs, but from some unexplained cause in
terior Inflammation then began, which soon
threatened disorganization and tho cutlro
loss of the orgau. A few days after Mr.
MUburn was suddenly slczcd by a violent at
tack of what the phslclans pronounced to
ba the Inflammation of the right luotr.
which soon placed him In a critical condi
tion. While tuls disease was at Its height,
however, strange to say, tho eye began to
Improve and l Inflammation soon abated.
After his recovery Qraefe examined the eye
and found that the crystalline tens Is opaque.
To remove this It will be necessary to ran
tho knife along the whole lower or upper
margin of tho eye, and to remove the lens by
pressuro or the use of hooks. This It will
not be safo to do for several months, but
there Is a definite prospect thai should
tho second operation be suooossful at least a
nartlul recovcrr of ibrht wilt bo the remit.

DiSTnicr Business in Congress. Tho
House Commlttco on tho District of Colum
bia, at Its meeting yesterday, considered a
vast amount of business of Interest to the
pcoplo of the District. They determined to
report favorably upon tho following bills,
vizi Scuate bill No. 03, to Incorporate the
Alexandria, Washington and Georgetown
Steamboat Company! Senate bill No. 133,
to Incorporate the Washington Asylum and
General Hospital of the District of Columbia j
Senate Joint resolution 41, donating to the
public schools of Washlngtou tho frame
building on the southeast corner of Twenty-
second street west and I street north) Senate
bill No. TO, In relation todhorces lu the
District or Columbia.
The commlttco also decided to report ad
vcrsly and recommend the rejection of tho
bill amending tho charter of Oak Hill Ceme
tery. Tho commlttco considers the bill un
Tub TENURE-or-OrricE Act. Tho report
of tho commlttco of conference on tho dis
agreeing votes on the tenure of-ofHco bill
will bo found In our Congressional report
elsewhere In to-day's parcr. After tho re
port was read In the House, Mr. Bingham
proceeded to explain It, and a somewhat
spirited debalo ensued. While- tho members
of tho committee held that tho agreement of
tho conference was a virtual repeal of the
original tcnore-of-offlco act, there was a v ldo
difference of opinion on thts subject among
Republicans, hllo tho Democrats w ere unan
imously of tho opinion that It did nothing of
tho kind represented by tho committee. It
was contended that if the pending proposi
tion was a repeal then there was no use mul
tiplying words upon the subject, and a simple
clause declaring the repeal In so many words
was nil that was necessary.
Mr. Nlblack created not a little amuse
ment by remarking that gentlemen on his
sldo of the House could bo Mr. Butler's allies
uo longer, and they must, therefore, decltro
the temporary partnership dlssohcd.
Mr. Ward characterised tho compromise
report as tantamount to the original propo
sition as it camo from tho Seuatc.
Mr. Poland requested his Republican col
leagues not to bo dcceUed by the notice of
dissolution which had been served upon
them bj Mr. Nlblack, but appealed to them
to reject tho conference report, and thus ad
here to the principle enunciated, that there
must bo rcatrlctlous upon tho Execute o
pow cr of removal from office.
After further discussion, Mr. Davis do
sired to have tho subject postponed until to
day, In order that the report might bo print
ed, and tho Houflo could then voto undcr
standiugly. This request was refused, nud
tho preUous question being demanded, it
was seconded by a loto of 07 to 51, uud Iho
ccmdrcuco report was agreed to by a voto of
100 to 07. Tho Republicans voting In the
negative were Messrs. Deatty of Ohio, Bui
ton of N. H., Boyd of Mo., Clarke of Kiui.,
Davis of N. Y., DowoosoofN. C, Ferry of
Mich , Hawkins or Tcuu., Hoar of Mass.,
Julian of Ind , Loughrldge of Iowa, Orth of
Ind , Poland, Smith and WUlard of Vt.,
Whittcmorc of S. O. add Wilkinson of Miuu.
Tho report was then sent to tho Senate,
where it was agreed to without much dUcus
slon or objection, and It now only require
the X'icsldcut's slguaturc to become u law.

Wednfsday, Mabcu 31, 18C9.
Tho House conrnrrent resolution in rrn-
rlde for the adjournment of the two Houses
on Tuesday, April 0, was read.
Mr. Sumner moved to lay It on the table,
which was not agreed to.
Mr. Fessenden said It would be ntterly Im
possible to adjourn on the day named. There
were yc two appropriation utus 10 uo con
sidered. Mr. Anthony thouicht titer were lost
as near adjournment now as they would
Mr. Fessenden thought It would be much
better not to fix any day until at least tho
Indian bill was finally disposed of.
Mr. Sumner concurred In tho opinion of
Mr. Fessenden, but there was also the wholo
subject of Georgia, which had not yet been
considered. It was wrong to talk about
going home until this matter was settled.
If they abandoned the Union people of
Georgia, what guarantee had the Union peo
ple of Texas and Mississippi that they would
not also bo left unprotected. Then there
was the subject of naturalization, which
also ought to be attended to. Ho did not at
tempt to lecture Senators, but he thought
they would not bo doing their duty If they
should leave their posts with all this work
unaone, ana tne people wouiu so regara it.
Mr. Howe thought the longer they stayed
here tho more they would find to do. Ho
had been here since 1803 expecting Georgia
to bo reconstructed, and It was no nearer
being reconstructed now than It was then.
Tbo fact was that this reconstruction re
quired not only tlmo but a little common
Mr. Hamlin mocd to strlko out Tuesday,

which time he did not doubt that everything
that was necessary could bo considered.
Mr. Anthony said the Senator from Mas
sachusetts Mr. Sumner was not a safe
guldo as to the proper tlmo for adjournment,
ns he had always been opposed to an ad
journment. Mr. Sumner asked what the Senator pro
posed to do with Georgia.
Mr. Anthony had about como to the con
clusion to let Georgia alone
Mr. Sumner. And giro no protection to
tho Union people.
Mr. Anthony. A bill for Georgia can be
passed nt any time that tho Senator who has
it In charge goes around and gets a majority
of the Senate to stand by him. Nothing nw

Mr. Sumner. Wh&thasthe Senator cot to

Mr. Anthony. I do not think It Is neces

Committee of tho House, which bad consid
ered this motion much more carefully than
any committee ot tnis ooay, nan concurred
in cue uay lor adjournment proposcu uy mo
Mr. Warner was as anxious as any Sena
tor to get away, but ho could not think It
right to Icare here with the ttatui of Georgia
unsettled. Georgia was now half In the
Union and half out, and cither ono thing or
the other should be done with her.
Mr. Fessenden was not bothered at all
about Georgia, but ho repeated tliat It was
not expedient just now to fix the day of ad
journment. If Senators would only qulttho
practice of telling all that they knew or all
that they thoucht they knew on etery sub
ject that came up, It would be much easier
to get tnrougn ana najourn. lie snouia not

fMr. Hamllnl as ho thoucht It would be
much better to fix tho following Tuesday.
Mr. Conkllng said In the last threo tears
they had ordinary sessions and cxtrnordinar)
sessions, tho necessity for which crow out of
the war, and there was nothing now that
the pcoplo would be so much delighted to see
as for Congress to return to the old order of
tilings, and do away witu tneso extra ses
sions. If tho day of adjournment was fired
then tho Senate would co toworkand attend
to tho necessary business, but If tho fixing of
tne uaj oi aujournracni was uciaycu, au sons
of measures would continue to bo brought

Tho House then resumed the consideration
of the bill for the organization of a provis
ional government for Mississippi.
Mr. Farnsworth, of 111., offered a substi
tute for tho bill, proposing a re-submlsslou
to tho people of Mississippi of tbo constitu
tion already framed, with separate rotes on
some of its objectionable featnrcs. Ho Ar
gued against the bill reported from the com
mittee, which proposes to reassemble the
convention, and to authorize It to appoint
a provisional governor, wun power on ma
part to fill all tho other State offices. That
convention, he said, was not popular with
the best classes of Colon pcoplo In Missis

Mr.Ward.of N. Y.. asked whether the gen

Mr. Farnsworth, of 111., declined to dis
cuss tho rnr$onul of the convention, but re
marked that most of Its members were them
selves candidates for office, and that It was
suspected by the Union men there that tho
whole, game was got up in tho Interests of
those candidates. The proposition that tboeo
candidates snouia cicci a provisional gov
ernor who would havo the appointment of

About Women and Dress
Modem civilization has made It possible
for nil women to display their love of drees
nnd decoration. The confused And Incon
gruous state of tho art Is to be Attributed to
the fact that It has been left wholly to tho
feminine mind, which, abandoned to Itself,
Is lawless and craves for excitement. Dress,
as an art, nerer, nnttl our century, was
wholly abandoned to one sen and It never
has been mororarledAndostenUllousamong
women than now. It has lost gravity and
simplicity or effect His full of license, of
dazzle, or display) It Is sometimes exquisite

French Revolution, In women or the tlmo or
Washington, In the cotcmporarics or Cha
teaubriand. The much-abused classic painter David
made a beautiful and simple costume fash
ionable In France. French women were
never more exquisitely dressed than during
his epoch. The mania for trimmings, which
la mmi violent amonir American women. Is
of Itself a sign or a corrupted taste It does
more than any other cause to retard tho as
cendency or a pure and simple taste. Al
though women arc so universally gifted with
tho artistic lustlnct, they havo a touch of
folly, a love of change, which prevents them
from producing the finest results or the Ar
tistic faculty. They hare lames, they ato
