Wakhisotox, February 10. As was an
ticipated, tho offering of the amendment to
repeal the law creating supervisors of
election was the sigual tor the commence
ment ot what promises to be a long and
hot fight in the house. Garfield nnd Hale
steered the Republicans, and both served
notice of the Democrats that they would
resist the repeal of the law by every device
known in parliamentary tactics. Fernando
Wood in reply, announced that the determ
ination of the Democrats was not to' vote a
dollar to run the government until the
amendment was adopted. The ensanguined
garment was plainly visible in most of the
speeches and it was made manifested that
a good deal of blood is stired up. Unless a
SECESSION DOCTIUN8 AGITATED OS THE
New York, February 19. The Sun's
Washington special quotes an extraordinary
report from the oldest financial paper on
the Pacific coast, in urging a monster mass
meeting to be held in San Francisco to de
mand Hayes' eignature to the Chinese bill.
The paper declares that the people there
are wildly discussing secession from the
Lnwn in case Haves refuses to sitrn the
anti-Chinese bill. "The East." it says,
"utterly fail i to understand the situation,
and to extend the aid and sympathy we
have a right to expect from the sisterhood
of states. As a last resort, we will take
advantage of the geographical lines that
surround us, the vast extent of soil within
our boundaries, add tho exhaustless re
sources of wealth that are ours, and set up
an occidental republic which, if it cannot
rival the republic in the glory of the past,
will at least be a magnificent empire of
white free men, whose heritage shall be
preserved to their children'), children forever."
NO FEVER IN NEW ORLEANS.
New Orleans, February 19. Reports
living been recently published of the ex
istence of yellow fever in New Orleans,
the statement is made that such reports are
untrue. No cases or deaths from yellow
pose, and the unfortunate creature, fearing
the fato she is threatened with, has ap
pealed to an American family to 'buy her,
promising to render domestic servico for
the advance. It is said that the Chines
sell their wives in every town and city on
the Pacific Slopo (their own race being the
purchasers) where they have gained a foot
hold as soon as they grow tired of them or
want to raise money. In some cases it is
reported that they hypothecate their women,
paying a certain rate per clay for the accom
modation and the lender keenim? the rietti-
coated collateral until redeemed." Only the .
young and comparatively good-looking can
bo pnwned, as the capatilists know thatn
other kind will be ransomed. Many of the '
California newspapers are justly clamoriDfj
for tho abolition of this Chinese slaw,

The house bill to increase the pay of let
ter carriers jxutsed the senate to-day by a
rising vote of 23 yeas to 10 nays. It pro
vides two classes of carriers for all cities
containing a population ot 75,000 or more,
the first class to receive 1,000 providing
they have served one year, and the second
class $800 per annum. Cities having less
than 73,000 population will have but one

The reports of the senate commitec on
transportation routes to the seaboards sets
forth in the most emphatic terms that the
works at the south pass of the Mississippi
are of a most substantial and permanent
character and impervious to the action of
the water or the Teredo insect. The re
port of the committee is based upon the
report of the board of army officers, who
state that the channel is of incalculable
value and the aid which it will give to the
commerce of the Mississippi valley cannot
be over estimated. There is but little
doubt that Captain Eads will secure such
modifications of his contract with the gov
ernment as he desires and deserves.
The Republican members of the Indiana

THE STATE CAPITAL.
Spiunokiei.d, February 19. The greater
part of the senate session this morning
was taken up in the discussion of Senator
Dearborn's resolution in relation to the re
moval of the federal courts. Tho Republi
cans had tho temerity to flaunt the bloody
shirt, tho excuse being that should a
change be tnado in tho law giving to stale
courts ample Jurisdiction, federal officers
would meet with opposition in the South.
The resolution, after being pruned ' to its
death, wan buried with due solmnity by a
voto of 15 to 33.
After the Introduction of a number of
new bills, the senate adjourned.
A week's accumulation of bills was
turned Into the hnuso this morning.
A resolution was addoptcd giving the
uso of Representative hall to L. U. Rcavis,

Prof. Tyndall writes to the London
Times calling attention to the remarkable
escape of Galveston from yellow fever last
summer, und the evidence that it was due
largely to the rigid quarantine that wa
maintained. He quotes from tho report of
tho board of health to thin effect, and inti
mates that tho experience of Galveston
should encourage the British authorities to
insist upon '"due precautious in our inter
course with infected regions." "No doubt,"
ho adds, "two factors Becd and soil are
concerned in thu spread of an epidemic. It
may bo that a change in our atmospheric
conditions or in our habits ol life has, in
case of plague, rendered the second of the
above factors unfit for the uutrition and de

SELLING CHINESE WOMEN.
Now York Time,
Tho Chineso are, as is well known, in the
habit of Rolling their women in their own
country, and they continue tho pleasant
custom, though not openly, after immigra
tion to our shores. Women are so plentiful
in the Celestial Empire as to bo constantly
in excess of the demand; the market, is,
therefore, regularly glutted, nnd the ordi
nary nrticle brings nothing; indeed, can
not in many Instances bo (riven away. The
contrary la tro here, because - John, on
quitting his native land, leaves his saffron

but he often regret It after arrival, owing
to their feminine scarcity, and the conse

tho very pitiacle of fame, A San Fernando
street boy has a brilliant future before him,
and if he is not one day ranked high
among the noble army of newspaper para
graphed, this deponent hits utterly fuiled
to read the signs aright. He came bound
ing into the house the other day, and, ap
proaching bis mother asked:
"Ma, will candy rot folkses teeth?"
"Yes, Willie, it will indeed, and I do not
want you to eat any of the injurous stuff,"
The eirbryo laugh-builder was silent for
quite a while evidently rehearsing in hi
mind the continuance of the convcrsaton,
and getting his queries in a shape that
would enable him to steer clear of all pit
falls. Finally he continued;
"Will it rot girls' teeth too?"
"Certainly, my dear."
Another silence, and more mental figur
ing, nnd then he asked :
"Ma, R.'iottcrdam isn't a bad word, is itt"
"No, no, Willie, that is the name of t
foreign city. You will find it in your ge
ography." ""Well, you wouldn't lick a feller for talk
ing about it, would you.
"Most certainly not."
"Honest Injun you wouldn't?" and hTi
fuce bore an expression of deep cnrnestnesai.
"Of cnurso not; what makes you attk.
"Well, Mary Dawson is coming over to)
tell on me, Sho had a whole two-bitV
worth of candy and wouldn't give me a bite,,
so I told her to jist cat it herself an' I hoped
it would Rotterdam teeth out." Ho
escaped chastisement, but the moral lessoa
read to him will serve aa a guidrpuiit
through nil his future life.
