W.'Mii.MiTOX, February 28. It is gen
erally understood that the appointment of
General John H. Henderson to the Berlin
mission was decided upon in the cabinet
meeting to-day. As General Henderson is
not in the city, no information can be ol
iaihed from him on the mutter, but it has
been given out for several days that the
president had been hesitating between
Governor IJamsay, Henderson and Thomp
son with the chances in favor of the ex
senator from Missouri, and unless alt signs
fui!, his name will be sent to the 3';n
a . to-m-inow. It is believed that the cub-
.net are almost a unit iu his favor, and as
lie is regarded rut one the foremost men of
the nation, it isdithYult to see how a better
choice could be made. All senators and
mtmbeis thus far interviewed upon the
subject, admit that it will be an appoint
ment which will reflect great credit and
honor on the administration, and that Mis
souri is entitled to a representative in the

which was offered fts on amendment to the
post oflicu appropriation bill, met with such
a terrible defeat in the house that it took
everybody by surprise. It was known us
late us yesterday thai it had a good mujor-
ty but when the opponents ot the measure
srt up the subsidy howl, the timid ones got
skittish, and upon a call of 'lie yeas and
nays went dead against it. 1 s estimated
that upon a rising rotu it hudu majority of
twenty, but they don't want to go on the
record In furor of it.
Washington, February 20, 1U7D.
The house yesterday, alter a severe und
protracted Htrugglc, passed tho Democratic
provision in tho appropriation hill, rep'.al-
ing the idection supnrvisors law. The pro
vision succeeded by a strictly partisan voto,
which indicates that it will fail in tho sen
ate, and thus offer another bono of conten
tion for a conference committee, if it J,M,
not forco an extra aession of congress. Tho
bill will probably be sent to tho senate to
day. This it tho last of tho appropriation,
bat unfortunately it Is not tho last wo hH
hear of them, for not only this, but tho
array, tho fortification, tho postofflce nl
several other bill will have to go through
the process of clianaes aud rangles Iu cn"
ferrence, and then bo passed by both house
again. Thcro will, bo a groat opiortunltjr

for business. A determined few how
ever, refused to adjourn, and the Sergeaut-ut
arms was kept busy drumming up absentees.
Some excitement ensued upon the return ol
the officers, which showed that some sena
tors would not respond to his demands, 'and
the question was whether lie should lie au
thorized to force open the residences of
senniors and bring them to the chamber
bodily. Finally the session petered out ut
4 :50 o'clock, the grand result b ing that
senators were unfitted for work for the next
24 hours. Night sessions ns a rule are tin
jwlitic, since they demoralize the members
without promoting the public business.
The vote yesterday on the Corbin-Iiutler
ruse seomsTto settle the question in favor of
the latter's holding his seat. Several Re
publicaiiH voted against taking np the reso
lution in favor of Corbin, while not all tho
others voted for it. The majority against
consideration was 11, and probably thhs will
end the contest. The social season will
close with great brilliancy as congress closes
its work. Senator Blaine's reception on
Saturday was attended by the notables of
all parties, and was the most notable of the.
senatorial entertainments of the season.
On Monday night the Mexican minister
gave on1.' ol the grandest and most unique
parties ever known here. Last night the
White House followed suit with an enter
tainment that did credit to the host.
Altogether this is said to have been the
best season socially that has been exper
ienced for many years.
Cons.ulcJJtble interest has been taken
here in a canvass made by u New York
newspaper m An of the New York members
of congress as to the next presidential pref
erences, the result bi ing that Blaine is the
favorite of the Republicans and Tilden
among the Democrats, with Grant and
Thurmau as second choice on each side. It
is not likely that ei.ther of the candidates
encourages Mich canvasses at this early
day. Certainly Mr. Blaine and Mr. Thur
mau do not, since both of them have ex
pressed themselves emphatically ns opposed
to any aggressive personal canvass that shall
provoke dissensions. Mr. Tilden, everybody
suppose? that he is the "favorite son" of New
York democracy aud the caucus develnpcs
nothing n nv. In spite of the protestations
of candidates and lenders however it will
not be many months lefore the canvass
beconu i general and warm in both parties,
and many dark houses may develop into
possibilities. The old Boss Shepard-Bnb-cock-Belknnp
ring here fs actually eng.igel
in working up the "Grant movement" as
they name it, but it is not probable that
the general himself encourages this work.
The greenbackers have made a pretty
thorough organization during the last week,
and will be heard from early in the coming
ampaigns. In fact they, ure going right to
work in Maine and Massachusetts under,
the lead of Mr. Muri'h and general Butler.
They threaten to make it hot lor the Re
publicans especially, but will probably
coalesce with the Democrats whciv success
is otherwise improbable.

FI.AOVi: INCIOl-XTS OF THE b.VKK DAYS.
Corn Hpondetirc of the I'oiirier Joiirmil. ',
Your readers all know that Blackburn
was a hero, but there were many more here
as brave as he men that gave their lives,
many of them, and women, too; still that
did not relieve the suffering of all. Both
hotels were made into hospitals, ami from
the street cries could be heard for water,
screams of the dying mid the weeping of
friends. One poor fellow, a drug clerk (I
know him well), crazed with fever, leaped
from his bed, threw a sheet around a ddz
yig nurse, tied him fast in his chair, and
then helped himself to water and
brandy, saying he was going to
run this ' thing himselt awhile.
Another clerk begged for a preacher to
come and pray for him, but no preacher
could be found. He then begged for some
woman just to put her hand on his head or
turn his pillow, saying he believed he
would get well if that much was done for
him. His fellow-chrk stood by him till
death claimed its own. One night, after
burying thu dead, six men in desperation
drauk Hostetter's Bitters to give them
nerve to continue in their work. The next
night they were all in their graves. One of
these six, while dy ing, prayed God to forgive
him fur the one sin of persuading one of
his comrades, II, to drink that night, he
having taken the Murphy pledge nnd
kept it up to that time. Brave Marshall
Warner was the only city official in towu
for three weeks. He had entire control
and appointed ten colored police. When
bo wanted ft "darky" to nurse a patient or
dig a grave, he sent a policeman for him.
Warner is a flue specimen of manhood! but
hrm as the "rock of ages," and his word
among the colorod folks is absolutely law.
He and Captain Overton are the only two
men that staved through the entire epi
demic and did not have the fever. Old
Mr. Buck, bravo old man, sixty-three years
old, the old druggist, tho ouly ono left,
stayod at his post, filling over one hundred
prescriptions a day. Knowing that death
was certain, he cooly mado his will, and
died In the last hours of the epidemic.
Jo. M., a slender dry-goods clerk, had
tho black vomit for thirty six-hours. Ills
coffin was made, his grave dug, and his
death reportod. He is now a great big
double-Bted, whilst fellow, who looks like
ho had never been sick a day la his life.
Miss 11. was onlr naMi blr Bood looking

It's an ill wind that blows no good. The
authorities are giving the town a thorough
cleaning and draining. A man was ar
rested and fined last week tor attempting
to remove the dead. The old St. Charles
Hotel has been thorouy;hlv overhauled
from cellar to shingles, refurnished, and is
well kept 1 1 am not trying to advertise this
house, for it needs no" advertising, as it is
tho only one here). The Kr.iglits of Honor
lost twelve of their member here.
Their families have so far got part of the
insurance, and will soon get it all $2,0(J()
each. The other orders will begin
to pay out their losses about Marcli

The colored folks here made a great deal
of money nursing anil working during the
reign of the plague, and are in better cir
cumstances now than they were ever known
to be betore. But lew ot them sum-red
mlv twelve deaths out of one hundred
and fifty-four. The people speak in highest
praise ot the country people, who lormed
clnbs and sent in u wagon load of provis
ions every day at precisely at 12 o'clock,
and would not take a cent iu pay for it.
