It Is not certain that the present commis

the prominent applicants are Geu. Burbrldgc,
of Kentucky, Mr. Thayer, Slate Senator of

Cincinnati. Judge Fisher h an eminent

contest for tho position of Commissioner of
Pensions waxes warm between the friends
of Messrs. Perham nud Vun Acruam, aud
there seems to be somo doubt which, If

that the resignation of Gocrnor Cox was
not demanded by the Serretary of the In
terior, but Has voluntarily tendered by Mr.
Cox to relieve the President of any embar
rasimcnt which might grow out of the pres
ent presiuro for office. A number of Influen

CotsiDBiUTio op Treaties bt toe
SEfATB. -The Senate dcrotod yesterday to
tho consideration of treaties, and advised
the ratification of those negotiated with
Baden, Wcrtcmburg, Hesse aud Belgium,
defining tho rights of naturalized cltircns,
Thcso four treaties are substantially on tho
bails of tho original naturalization treaty
made with North Germany by Mr. Bancroft!
Consent was also given to tho ratification of
a consular convention with Belgium, and to
a convention with that Government for the
mutual protection of trade-marks. Tho
Senate next took up tho Cushlng Inter
oceanic canal treaty with tho United Slates
of Colombia, which Mr. Sumner explained
nt length. The Importance of the rtncstlon
evidently Impressed Itself upon Senntors,
and as somo of them desired to examine It
moro carefully, tho further couildcratlon
waspostponed until Wednesday Mr. Sum
ner E&to noltce prior to adjournment that he
would to-day call up the Alabama claims
treaty. Tho correspondence on this subject,
which the President ordered to be printed
prior to the adjournment of tho regular ses
sion, will make eight or ntno largo volnmes.
A Relic Faesehted to thb President.
About IS06 an attempt was made to restore
the tone to tbo old Independence bell, of
Philadelphia, which had becu cracked by a
singular coincidence while ringing a Fourth
of July morning peal. It was thought that
by cutting away a small portion of the metal
on either side of the crack, so that tho two
sides would not como In contact, the tone
ratght be restored, but the experiment failed,
as It was found that the crack extended Into
the crown of the belt. Tho filings Mere,
however, carefully saved and made into
several forms to bo presented as relics. A
ring with a signet setting made of this
precious metal was worn by the late John
Minor Botts, of Virginia. That gentleman,
prior to his death, requested tbit this ring,
which he bad worn, should be given to Geu.
Grant, whom ho considered tho most fit re
cipient of the relic, and on Wednesday last
John F. Lewis, of Roeklnghim county, Va.
hts administrator, pwnlcd the ring to tho
President In compliance with the request of
sir. uotts. If we mistake not, mo have ob
served upon Gen. Grant's watch-guard ono
of the very lew miniature bells made from
tho same metal.

Tub Hon. Jas. F.Wilson left this evening
for his homo lu Iowa. The story of tho
connection of his name with the Cabinet or
President Grant Is not uninteresting. Before
the Inauguration, Gen. Grant sent for Mr
Wilson, and tendered him tho Attorney Gen
eralship. This Mr. Wilton refused lo accept.
On the evening of the day of the Inaugura
tion, Gen. Grant agiln scut for Mr. Wilson
to come nud sec him nt hi house. Mr. Wil
son accordingly went, and the President then
asked him to become his Secretary of Stato.
Ho said that Mr. Wnshbiune expected tho
place, and It was duo to him ilmt he should
be umwltitod, but lmmcdl ttul on his coullr
matlon lie would resign, and then lie would
appoint him (Wilson.) Mr. Wilson nt first
declined tho offer, pleading that he Mas unQt
for tho isItlon, and felt timid of the respon
slbllll), but President Grant urged him, aud
ho finally agreed to accept. The ucxt day
ho leni nud that Mr. Washburno had deter
mined oati list of tho most prominent for
eign appointments, Mhlch ho Insisted should
bo made liofore ho retired. Unwilling to

Ax Important Decision Tub STATBor
Texas vs. Wiiitp, Ciiiieb ax Others.
Among the cases In which opinions wcro de.
lirercd In the Supremo Court of the Unttcd
States yesterday was that of tho State of
Texts vs. Gcorgo W. White, John Chiles,
John A. Hardcnbnrg and others. Thts case
has excited a good deal of Interest nnd In
volved somo very Interesting points. The
opinion waa delivered by Chief Justice Cliase,
aud the case was detcrmlucd In favor or the
Slate or Texas. At the breaking out or the
rebellion the Stato of Texas had in Us pos
session several hundred thousand dollars
worth of United States bonds, which had
been paid to It upon the settlement of Its
northwestern boundary. During tho rebel
lion the Insurgent government leired tho
State treasury, and, among other property,
the said bomls, and subsequently disposed
of the bonds to White, Chiles & Co. on a
contract, and White, Chiles & Co., at tha
close of the war, took them to New York
and sold them to different persons, disposing
of some In England. The sales were made
by White, Chiles A. Co. after the maturity
of tho bonds. A bill was tiled In the Su
preme Court by the State of Texas against
White, Chiles A- Co. and all other pur
chasers and holders of tho bond, the State
seeking to set aside the contract whereby the
Insurgent government sold the bonds origi
nally) and they asked a decree that the
holders should pay tho same over to the
State or account for them.
The questions raised In Hie argument Merc
of grave Importance nud iurolvcd the rela
tions of Tcxus to the Union and the Constitu
tion during the Mar) the character and author
ity of her government uud tho relation of tho
State to the Union since tho war, and the
character of her government since that time.
Tho opinion of the Court determined that the
tho State m as ncv cr out of tho Union or freed
from her obligations to tho Federal Govern
ment, notwithstanding lie State government
during tho war was hostile to tho Constitu
tion, and could uot be rccogulzcdly tho Fed
eral Government t that the object of the war
was to overthrow thu hostile gov eminent nud
cnablo tho State to re-csUblUh government
In harmony w 1th tho Constitution of Ihe Fed

been anythlug but nu usurping authority,

tho possession of tho territory and tho con
trol of the coplo for the purposo of ena

cut government, of w hlch Pcaso Is Governor
under tbo authority of tliii mllltiry com
mander of tho dUlrltt, were all such gov
ernments as could projeriy represent the
Stato lu the Supreme Court ol tho Untied
Tho Chief Justice in dcllv crlug the opinion
avoided by express statement any opinion as
to ino consiuuuon iiuy oi iuo reconstruction
nets, and decided that tho Insurgent govern
ment could mako no valid contract convey
ing the title to tho property of tho Stato of
icxas, aim mu as ma ptircniscrs oi inoso
bonds from the original holders took them
after they had matured they could acquire
no better title than the parties from whom
they obtained them, aud that tho State Mas
therefore entitled to the full relief prayed for
In the bill.
The case was at gm d In Felmnry I.ul by

During the whole of that time the great

It was at the end of this dinner parly that

So I opened the conversation and told him

tho country of tho Mormons, tho silver
mines or Nevada, and the gold digging of
California. I gave him to understand how
much Interest I had taken In all tho great
and curlout things which 1 had teen, and
freely expressed the admiration which I en
tertained for America In certain respects.

clouds from his cigar and tipping tho coffee

But during tho whole of our conversation
not a fibre of his face vibrated, his mask re
mained Impenetrable) his countenauce, with
the rough, angular features, was rigid and

laughed since his birth," said a Washington
lady of him.

When I had taken leave of the Generil, I
had the honor of belug presented to Mrs.
