When the House met it 10 o'clock yesterday the
Republicans members expressed a desire to pro.
ceed with the discussion ofthe questions involved
la the objection to Mr. Hoggs as an Elector for
the State or Pennsylvania. There were be.

vaala, demanded tho reading of the objections,
and alsoofthe testimony taken In the case, as a
further means of consuming time. The Electoral
bill Is explicit en the point that after the two
Houses separate on a question, the only thing
in order Js.the two hours' discussion provided for
by the bill Itseir. Mr. Hamuli, knew this as well
as any one, and therefore, notwithstanding all
Ms impudence and assnrance, he did not dare to
rule tbat the evidence be read, but be cowardly

the House determine whether It should be read
r not. Oeneral Masks, Mr. McCrart, Judge
KsxLLTand other gentlemen protested, but It
was all of no avail. Kaioall pushed ahead and
put the question. The House, on a division, voted
that the testimony should he read. Nut satisfied
with the announcement oftbl result, the filibus
ters demanded the yeas and nays. They wanted
to consume an tne time tney could.
The motion that the testimony bo read was
carried on this call by a voto of lilyeas to 118
nays. Among tne latter were 13 Democrats, who
would not be cajoled or driven to the support of
the, filibusters. They were Ooousi, ofKau.j

Well, at last the debate went on. Mr. Kcllkt
contented himself with showing how trivial was
the objection to Hoggs. Mr. Scaim, or North
Carolina, Indulged at petty flings at soma or the
Kfntlemenor tho llepubllcan side who went to
Niw Orleans lowliness the count. He was more
rolled by the dirt be handled than were those at
nhein he threw It. Joxice, of Kentucky, who had
nut courage enough to take up arms In
Uor of noutnern treason, duiwuo committed
treason enough to warrant his Incarceration in
lort Warren, wanted some Democratic member
ofthe Tribunal to immortalise binnelf by re
signing. Tllden's lieutenant, 1 Invar, re.
turned to tne atrncic on Mr. Jloan. and
i.eustd him again of bad faith, but when Moan
gave him a dressing subsequently, Hewitt
mined mat ne nau kepi uis mourn snut.
Mr. Haw iit advised his Democratic friends not
wurnlsh the record ofthe Democratic party by
retlttlng or opposing the rerdisb of the Tribunal,
no matter how unjust it was. What a suggestion
tbat was! The Idea or tarnishing tne record of
the Democratic party I Some of his party friends
.lid nut relish the Idea or yielding. While he
wae rpeaklpg they gathered aiuut the area In
truutoitneuierx sueia.ana ur, uite,oi wis.
mnals.iald that It woullbo cowardice to yield,
This remark seemed to inspire Mr. Yeth, of
North Carolina, who said t net tne Democracy
would norer, no, never! no, never yield I Mr.
V it atxh yelled and grew red In tho face, created
m little evcltement and Mien subsided.
Mr. Toivxpemi, of New York, who gH oft
roine exoellenl hits in the Home, threw several
khans of ridicule, which bad a telling effect. The
Jtepubltcani enjoyed the hits, while the Demo
rrats illy lonccaled their rage. Mr. I'orrLt.Ton
fitndly advertised the IlxrL'iti ii an by mention
rtg Die-fact Utat he lound Uor, Hayes speech at
Wcmcnt, Ohio, In yesterday's lnu, and sent It
up to the Clerk's deik and had It tea J l?ut all
things have an end, and so did this dUcuitton.
The Houe then voted that Mr. Iloggt' vote ought
not to be counted. Fifteen Democrats, however,
had the manliness to vote, with tho Republicans,
that It ought tobe counted.
The Joint Convention then reassembled, and as
the two Hou;es had not agreed" to Mr. Boggt,
70 more votes were recorded for Hayes and
Wheeler. Hut the Joint Convention was or short
duration, Tor Rhode Island was the next State
reached, and thatdlitlngulahed Maryland state
man, Mr. William J, O'Hmrv, compelled an
other separation by filing the most senseless ob
jection to one of the hlectors that has yet been
filed. Mr. O'Umis hlmseH announced after
wards that he had no hope tbat the objection
would be sustained. It was ntthlns; more nor
less than another attempt to gain time. At
soon as the two Houses separated, a motion was
made for a recess until 10 o'clock to-day, but the
objection In thin case was so extremely abeird,
that the filibusters eould muster only 83 votes.
Ofthe Hi in the negative, It were Democrats,
The objection In this case, however, gave Mr.
Uarr, or Indiana, an opportunity to fire oft a
'witty speech at the Democratic side. Mr.CAim
was one of the Democrats who opposed
the Electoral bill from the beginning,
and he prophesied then that the re
suit would be disastrous to the party.
He can therefore consistently fling stones at hii
Democratlo brethren, and he ridiculed them s
unmerc(fully yesterday that he gotthemlntea
perfect rage. He compared the whole thing to a
farce, and portrayed some ofthe Democratlo ac
tions la the most ludicrous manner. The gavel
fell before he had concluded. The Republican,
who had enjoyed the sport hugely, called out to
him to go on, but the Democrats, sullen and
soured. Insisted upon the enforcement of the rule
which limited spceehes to ten minutes.
When the vote was taken the House, without a
division, refused to sustain the objection. This Is
the first case tbat has arisen In which the two
Houses have acted concurrently. The Joint Con
ventlon again convened, and four more votes were
recorded for Hayes and Wheeler.
The dual certificates from the state or South
Carolina were then read! the objections were
filed; the papers were turned over to the Eleo
toral Tribunal, and at 23 minutes or? the House
took a recess till this morning.
1 be programme as outlined Tor to-day Is to at
tempt to pass Mr. Field's bill providing for a
new election, add declaring that the Preldent
prattmot the Senate shall be the Pretldent of
the United States daring the interval. Whether
the bill passes or not etery nerve will now be
strained to defeat the count. If the filibusters
can secure the reading of the testimony In the
South Carolina case (and why not after the ac
tion of yesterday as to the testimony In Mr
Dookv'r case) the reading of that alone will or.
cupytwo or three days. If they get the South
Carolina decision on Wednesday, and the testi

Of course all Cabinet talk Is mere specula
Hon, for Governor Hayes has made no pledges,
and 11 he has Indicated to any one whom he will
chooso as his advisers. It has not been found out.
Hut people will talk, and gossip Is as Interesting
as fact sometimes. The State Department li con.
ceded by some to Mr. Everts. He li undentood
to want It, and although his friends have taken
no pains to prets his appointment upon Governor
Hayes, everybody seems to agree that he has
earned It by his marterly conduct or the case
before the Commission, and Is entitled to It by
virtue of his great ability and prominence. Hut
several other persons are mentioned.
Senator Mierman Is understood to have the
Treasury Department In his eye, and as "the
urlglnal,Hayet man" he Is supposed tobe entitled
to hare something to eay about the framing
or the Cabinet. No man Is better fitted for the
place, by reason of bis ability and experience
In finance, being the acknowledged leader
ol Congress In that branch of political
economy. The only objection raised against his
appointment Is the fact that Ohio would fill the
four greatest offices In the gift of the Govern
roent President, Chief Justice, General ofthe
Army, and Secretary or the Treasury.
Governor Morgan, of New York, Is also
a candidate for the place, and John
M. Forbes, a wealthy capitalist of Iloston,
Is spoken of In the same connection. Man would
like to see Secretary Morrill retaio the pl.ice, but
his physicians fear that If he should recover from
his present dangerous Illness hi health will not
permit him to continue to perform the arduous
duties of the Treasury.
Hale,ol Maine, It is conceled, will bare the
Naval Office, lllalne and Chandler both have
strong clalmi on the new Administration, and
have no need to remind Governor Hayes that
Hale's appointment would be satisfactory
to them. He one declined the Poft
maiterUeneratthti before Jewell was ap
pointed, but will not decline the Navy De
partment, while, as he sa he has no detlre to
seek It. The Pacific coast Ilepubllcana want
something la the Cabinet, and would recommend
Senator Sargent for the Navy Department If he
would give the word, bnt be dees not want to
leave his seat In the Senate.. .
General Logan standi the best chance for ap
pointment as Seoretary of War. Republicans
here feel that his sacrifice maue Hayes President,
Tor tr Logan had been reelected Tllden would
certainly hare gone mto Die White Home by
Jutige Davis's vote. Tnere are no otner candi
date for the place, although the Pennsylvania
people would like to see Mcretary Cameron re
tained, and Incase that could not be arranged
would urge Governor Harlianlt.
Judge McCrary, of Iowa, will be made Attorney-General
If Governor Hayes atcedes to the
solicitations of nine-tenths of the Republicans la
Washington. Stoughton, Stanley Matthews,
and others are mentioned, but they are objected
to on several grounds, whllo no one offers any ob
Jeetlonsto McCrary. Since Harlan wat Secre
tary ofthe Interior, Iowa has not been repre
sented In the Cabinet,
Many Republicans think that the Interior De
partment should goto a Southern man, and Al
corn, of Mississippi, who represents the native
Southern Republican element. Is being prested
with great urgency. Hancock.ofTexas, who re
resents the Union element of Democracy, will b
appointed If any Democrat goes Into the Cabinet
The Southern Democrats who hare blocked the
wheels of the filibusters would be please! with
SenatorMorton wants General Tyner retained
In the Postofflce Department, and Governor

Morton has held up the hands of the
Republican party In this crisis, and has
as strong a claim on the new Administration
as any one. Piatt, of New Yorkj Kauon, or
Iowa; and McCormkk, or Nevada, are also candi
dates, and Georges. Hangs hat been spoken or.

There are many other gentlemen mentioned fn
conneetlon with the Cabinet than the above, but
from the present outlook the probability seems In
favor of those named. The Cabinet, (f these ap
pointments are made, will be as follows:
Secretary of State Hvarts, of New York.
Secretary or the Treasury Sherman, ol Ohio.
Secretary of the Navy Hale, of Maine.
Secretary or War Logan, of Illinois.
Secretary of the Interior Alcorn, of Missis

The Kellogg Opera Company.
A brief season of English Opera, which la
limited to only three evening performances
and a matinee, was Inaugurated last night at the
National Theatre before a crowded bouse. It Is
almost superfluous to add, that the audience

kind. Tbe opera rendered on the occa

which has not, and probably never will, attain

things from her later on. Mr. Uonly dh tded the

and fairly merited the haltering plaudits that

Chicago, Feb. 20- The failure and defalca

of much comment and universal regret. Mr.
McArthur held a high business and social stand
ing in tbe community, and baa hitherto been con
sidered one of the stancbast and most reliable of
Chicago cltliens. He first became Involved to
the amount or about 440,000 by tneTallure or the
Cook County National Dank, abouttwoyears ago,
though the Uovtrnment assumed hair the re
sponsibility, which amount 11 was supposed would
be covered by aweta or the bank. Mr. McArthur
has never been able to replace tbe sum; besides
this he became Involved In the unsuccessful oper.
atlons of his largo Iron foundry on the North Side,
and took money from the postofflce to tide mat
ters over until a loan could be negotiated
from Scotch capllali'tf. He expected also to be
enabled to dispose favorably of tome portion or
his foundry, but In all his schemes for replacing
t he money, he was unsuccessful, and consequently
filed bla petition In bankruptcy last Saturday
afternoon. The matter waa kept a profound se
cret until yesterday evening. This petition
shows total liabilities of about tief.ouo, and as
sets ef ewo.ooo. Of the debt, M,WK) are due to
the United States Government, and i,M0tothe
Illinois Soldiers1 Home, of which he waa treasu
rer. The secured debts are $13,030. The assets
consist chiefly or tbe Iron foundry prtqrty. It
Is believed that the Government will lose noth
leg, being amply secured by tbe bond.

President Grant hai wisely deckled to take

In my letter or last summer.' This Is the course
which every one who knows Uorernor Hayes sup
posed ho would take. He wanted tbe canvass
carried en that ground, bat was overruled by

to Us rightful statue In the Union, and make It
