LATE TELEGRAPHIC NEWS.
Wahiiixoton, January 28. Democratic
senators favor ths futrhcr discussion of the
Now York nominations in open m.'Ssion, and
it is said that if Conkling will offer no op
position to tin; measuro, as he claims that
the publication of the facts will set him
right before tlu country and bIiows that
there is nothing sincere in the professions
of the Administration's (civil service reform.
Three Uemociatic senators stated to day
that they regarded the reply of ex-Collector
Arthur as a complete refutation of the
charges of Secretary Sherman.
REJCaSO THE TAX.
The senate finance committee by a vote

twenty cents, but the toba;co manufactur

The evidence of General Brady, Second
Assistant Postrcaster-General, showed that
he visited the committee-room where the
cipher dispatches were left iu tho custody
of Bullock, and selected such as passe
between linn am lyner, anil that lie was
permitted to do this through tho in
terveution of Representative Evans,
who being a close frieud of Bullock
was selected to manage him. The
clumsy manner in which Evans performed
his part of the duty, as well as the nature
of his testimony, all prove that a more
stupid old bungler could not have been
selected for so dricate a piece of work.
While he has never been credited with any
ability, it was supposed until now that lit;
was honest, but ho virtually admits in his
testimony that he was chiefly instrumental
in securing Bulhrk his appointment abroad
in return for civiiir him access to the dis
patches. In a congressional career extend
ing over four yeics he has done absolutely
nothing in the wty of legislation, and had
it not been for tie disreputable position he
assumed in this natter he would have soon
been forgotten. Even in his own district
the explanation of General Tyner is gen
erally regarded at satisfactory.
PROCEEDINGS OF THE LEGISLA
j Tin: skxatk.
Si'iiiNfiFiEi.D, 111.. January 28. Mr.
Archer's jesolutions relating to thu
improveinelt of the Mississippi river, its
tributaries, etc;., and asking congress for an
appropriation therefor, the special order tor
the hour, w: considered, and Mr. Archer
addressed tli senate at length in support of
Mr. l'i.lli oll'-ivd a substitute, for Mr.
Archer's resolutions, asking congress to ap
propriate a Hilllcient sum of money to im
prove the Mississippi river for ocean steam
er iiavijjatior, from St. Louis to tho gulf,
urged its adoption.
Mr.. Jdslyi; moved a substitnto providing

Mr. White introduced a 1 ill regulating
the charges on sleeping cars. The bill
provides tlwt for tho use of a singlo berth
for twenty-four hwurs 1 shall be charged;
for a section $1 50, and a stateroom $2. '
Mr. Merritt: A bill making it a misde
meanor to liet or wager on elections, sell
pools, etc., and recording or registering the
same. The punishment for these offences
under this bill is a fine of $2,000, or im
prisonment in tho county jail, or both.
The journal of Wednesday was read,
which stated that Mr. Fickliu moved to ad
journ. To this statemcut Mr. Ficklin ob
jected, denying that he made the motion.
This placed the speaker and clerk in a
funny position, at the gentleman who made
the motion refused to own it, and it is not
known how the house was adjourned on the
day that Logan was elected.
Mr. Hopkins, by unanimous consent, in
troduced a preamble and resolutions setting
forth that the public printer was not doing
any printing for the use of the house,
and instructing the committee on printing
to investigate the cause of this delay on
the past of the contractor and report at
once to the Lous?. The resolution was
Mr. Whiting's-colonial dollar resolution
as adopted by the senate, was taken up and
a substitute declaring for tho present 412
grain silver dollar, was offered, and, after
discussion, the whole subject was referred
to the committee on iednral relations.
Mr. Hinkley. by consent, introduced a
resolntion, which wns adopted, directing
the committee on millitia to inquire if the
causes for the organization of the state
militia have not ceased, and into the ne
cessity of appropriating $S2,000 out of the
state treasury to pay the state National
Guard. This resolution has for its object
inquiry why tho state of Illinois is main

ANOTHER LONG TRAMP.
New York, Jan. 28. Annie Ba'rttll, who
is to walk 3,000 quarter miles in 3,000
quarter hours; Belden, 2,000 half miles in
as many consecutive twenty minutes, and
Vanness, 2,000 half miles in the same num
ber of half hours, continue their tramp.
Musrrins, Jan. 28. This afternoon a bill
was filed in the United States court by
John W. Garrett & Sons, and other holders
of Memphis bonds. The object of the bill
is to secure the appointment of a receiver
for the city, in conformity with the law
passed by the Tennessee legislature in 1877,
and to provide for the payment of debts of
the city out of her assets, and also thwart
the scheme of the repeal of the city charter,
which is strengthened by the legislature.
Washington, D. C, Jan. 25, 180.
By Tuesday night every appropriation
bill will have lieen reported to the house.
This will give ample time to dispose of
them before the fourth of March. There is
a good deal of surprise and regret felt at
the fact that the house has so far yielded iu
every case to the demand of tho senate as
to the amounts to be granted in these
bills. There is no doubt of the right of
the senate to offer amendments to these
bills, and to insist upon such amendments,
but the bills must originate in thu house
and are supjioscd there to receive anil do
receive the most careful consideration.
But there has at this session been no in
stance in which the house has insisted up
on its views against those of the senate.
Senator Edmunds yesterday attempted to
get a vote without debate, on his resolu
tions affirming the validity of the later
amendments to the constitution and giving
them a complexion not authorized by the
supreme court in its interpretation of them.
He failed, as the Democrats, who are deter
mined to have debate on the subject, and
who have a substitute which affirms the
binding force of tho whole constitution,
succeed in getting other business taken up.
Aside from the regular appropriation bills
there ia no measure lfcforc Congress 'more
important than that which provide for the
taking of tho census in 18S0. It is pro
posed to secure full and accurate statistics
of various kinds not heretofore embraced
in the returns required. There is such a
wonderful demand abroad for nearly every'
thing we produce, that the gathering and
publication of full information is certainly
to be desired. While public motley should
not, of course, be squandered, I think there
will bo no objection from any source- to a
liberal appropriation for this purpose. If
possible tho officers necessary to bo np
poLitcd should bo selected without refer
ence to their politics, especially in view of
tho fact that a presidential election is to be
held at tho time these officers will lie en
gaged in the performance of their duties.
The friends of subsidy to New York and
New Orleans steamship, lines to Bnuil
yesterday attempted to gut their measure
before the, senate. There was shown to bo
a majority in favor of the subsidy ,but parlia
mentary rules prevented consideration at
the time. In accordance with suggestion
of senator Blaine In lis exhausting speech
on Wednesday, it is possible that the appro-
NEW SERIES NO. 189
priation for tho navy may be somewhat
reduced and tho money thus saved be ued
for sonic other lines.
As the senate is not iu session to-day we
shall not have a decision in the great case
of Conkling vs Hayes, based upon certain
transactions of tho latter in the New York
custom house. It wAf conte on Monday
and there is a growing belief that tho nom
ination's made by Mr. Ilayes, displacing
Conklins friends wll le rejected. All the
evidence in in the suit of Gen. R. E, Lee's
heirs for possession of the Arlington cstite.
Decision may be expected next week.
It is currently reported here that Mrs.
Elizabeth Thompson who originated the
Yellow Fever investigation is strenuously
supporting the measure f constructing re
frigerating ships for southern ports as a
means of purifying incoming vessola and
practically abolishing the greater incon
veniences of quarantine. Practical philmi
throphy is rare but Mrs. Thompson has
been fortunate first in laildlv relying on tho
discretion and talents of Surgeon (ion.
Woodsworth anil now in fostering tho
means suggested by her commission for de
veloping the power of that natural enemy
to the yellow lever cold. It is expected
that a bill will he brought in imni-ilialeiy
so that Prof, (lanigee's stud ship with its
enormous machines mnv be ttvailuUc' early
in summer. Let us hope tvhe.i this bill is
presented there may be little fiik and in
stant action. The euni deniaiideil 20o.Mi
is a Ilea bite compared to the pecuniary
losses by yellow fever and tlie cost of de.ttli
dealing Iron Clads.

WILL WE BUY HIM OFF?
The Washington Republic says: Aln adf
the osperities common in political life in
thiscountry, by which Gen. Grant was an
noyed while President, have been forgotten
or nearly so. The grand qualities of this
character arc remembered while harsh
criticisms are forgotten. There opens be
fore him an old age of peace and lioivir,
such as few men have ever enjoyed.
It is at such a time as this that a lew .icl
fish men, anxious for office lor tin tnselv.-s,
seek to draw Gen. Grant from his retirement
into a deadly struggle in which itt best the
chances for success are doubtful; in which
he has nothing to gain but much to risk,
and where he must necessarily be exposed
to the thousand shafts of partisan venom.
Let any ono look at the men who urn
urging Gon. Grunt for a third term, and thrw.
doubt if he can whether it be their own or
Gen. Grant's interest that they seek. Kveiy
man of them is a place hunter, and thev
struggle with a fierceness which savors ot
bread and meat.
Wo do not believe that Gen. Grant wants
to re-enter politics. There are a thousand
reasons why he should not, and a hundred
indications that he does not. There is one
and only one cause which may induce him
to permit the use of his name ' in u conven
tion. His own poverty.
It is said that he retired from tlm whifrr
house comparatively a poor man. There is
no business in which he can engage with a
proper regard for his own dignity, even if
his life for the past eighteen years did not
wholly unfit him for business pursuits. It
may be, then, that with the fear of poverty
before his eyes, hi will consent to become
candidate for a third presidential term. It
is a pity that our form of goverment makes
no provision tor retiring presidents.
This omission may become, at some day,
a very daugerous one to the state and
should receive early consideration at tho
hands of congress. In the case of Gen.
Grant it requires immediate action. Hi
services as a soldier entitle him to bo. piaced
on the retired list. Ordinarily half pay
would bo sufficient, but tho complimeU
of full pay would be insignificant enongr,
where the services reudeied havo lieecu
of so unusual a character. It is uot to bo
expected that any word will be heard from
tho General himself looking to such action
by Congress, but his most intimate friend
do uot doubt that it would be very uccpU
blo to him. -Repeatedly he has declared hii
preference for private life, and it it believed
that nothing short of pressing' necessities
will forco him to deport from the plan
which he has marked out. , Congress should
act promptly and generously. ,
