The early day appointed for the reas
sembling of congress in extra session has
brought on a lively and exciting canvass for
offices in both the sonato and house. It is
estimated that from seven to tea thousand
office icekera will be in this city during
the Coming two weeks. The senate, for the
first time In twenty yean, will bo under
thv control of Democrats. Candidates for
evory office within its gift, 'have swarmed
up like locusts, each loaded with docu
mentary evidence of his peculiar fitness for
the desired office, and of bis groat services
NEW SERIES NO. 221
in the Democratic party Such pre J
wiu De Drought to bear upon the Deil
cratic senators that it is safe to predict t
the employes of the senate will undergo
almost complete change of personal,
best office in the gift of the senate is
ccretaryship, for this place th
are many candidates, promini
in politics and in jurnalism. Anvona- thi
are Ex-Senator Dennis of Maryland, tt
Burch, editor of the Nashvill Americrf
a r r i, i 1
voi. a. v,. liuun, a wen Known ana Btiiita
journalist of this city, Ex-Congressmt!
Frankhn of Mo., Steager of Pa., and WaJ
dell of North Carolina.
Very naturally, the chief interest ir i
gard to the next house centers in tho spea
ership. On the Democratic side. Moairi
Randall and Blackburn are mentioned i!
tho leading candidates, with S. S. CojTS
R. Morrison, W. M. Springer, John? I
Douse, John A. McMahon, John O. CrlW
John Ooode and Oe.Tom Ewing aieitbe
in the race or probale competitors. It i
understood, and Republican members wn!
erally confirm it, that Gen. Garfield will M

backers say they propose to nominate DM

himself with equal confidence. His friend
have no doubt that eighty Democrats will
voto wr mm in ttie caucus, and that either
ne or oariieia would be the next speaker,
meaning that the contest would be between
Blackburn, as the Detaocratic nomieo, and
Garueld, as the Republican caa-
niuaBe. mere will be six vacancies,
in tlte house four nm California, one
from New York, and eoe from Texas and;
ueuurong inese, i naemoere will consti
tute a majority. Thisgives the Democrata
undoubted control, as- they have more than
this number whose status is not disputed.
For clerk in the house only two candi
dates are out so far, Mr. Adams, the pres
ent incumbent, and 3lr. Caldwell, ot Ala
bama, who was a candidate before the cau
cus when Mr. Adams, was last chosen. Col.
John G. Thompson proposes to retain the

crats are willing, and Richard M. Bright of
lntuana, is the only man who has yet taken
the field against hiia.
For doorkeepers,. Gen. Field is again
spoken of, as well as Col. Polk, who, now
that he has been twice indorsed fcy the
house as without stain, insists that he
should be rc-electcJ.
The organization of the senate will be
effected with bus httlo difficulty. There
will be no presiding officer to elect. Sena
tor Thurman will be elected president pro
tempore without opposition. Even before
the extra session, had been called ihe or
ganization of committees had been decided
upon. Senator Thurman will bo chair
man of the- judiciary committee and
Senator Bayaid chairman of the conk
mittee on flaance: Saulsbury, of privi
leges and elections; Eaton, foreign
affairs; Gordon, commerce; Johnson, aj-'
riculture; McPherson. manufactures; Ran
dolph, military affairs; Whyte, naval af
fairs; Maaey, post-offices and post-roads;
McDonald, public lands; Coke, Indian
affairs; Withers, pensions ;Cockrcll, claims;
Harris, District ot Columbia; Keraan,
patents; Garland, territories ; Lamar, .rail
roads.; Wallace, revision of laws; Ransom,
library; Hill, public buildings and groends;
either Davis (W. Va.) or Beck, chairman
of appropriation committee.. Should Beck
not be given the committee on appropria
tions, ho will be chairman of the teanspor
This rule of advancement, however, will
not bo adhered to. In many cases tho sen
ators will exchange, and thus by agreemont
arrange for the chairmanships of commit
tees they prefer, and the caucus will notify
such agreement. Hence it is not possible
to give a correct list of the fut ure chairmen
of tho senate committees.
The time between tho adjournment and
convening of the extra session, is so short
that most members lrom distant states wilt
not return home. Then tho croat interest
felt in the re-organization induces a great,
many members to remain iu Washington.
A lurge proportion of the new members are
on hand and will stay, and consequently
tho usual recess dullness does not exist. -
