. I r. r r... ...
Wasuinoto.n, March 13, 1879.
The approach of the extra session give
nse to more political speculation and e
citement than has been known at the Cap
ital for many years. The official patronage
of both branches of congress, the antici
pated controversy between the Democrats
and executive in the matter of political
legislation, so called, meaning the proposed
repeal of the. federal election laws, the
preliminary cauvass for the presidency, and
attendant political uffairs, all contribute to
make things very lively. The struggle fe
the speakership is the hottest ever known
here, the fortes of Randall and Blackburn
ranging themselves distinctly and sharply
against each other, and quarreling bitterlr
It is noted that there is a wide difference in
the methods of the two sides. ... Mr. Ran
dall's canvass is a steady ami sober one,
while Mr, Blackburn's is oiled with plenty
of good liquor, calculated to catch the
average Congressman. Mr. Randall relies
upon his character as a speaker, which Ls
very high, tuid for his long experience
in public life, which is valuable, while
Mr. Blackburn counts largely upon his per
sonal magnetism and his close relationship
to the southern idea for his strength, 9o
far in tho race, it appears that Mr. Randall
is ahead, the more conservative even among
the southern Deruocrats'leheving it safer to
entrust thu leadership to a man of his char-
acieiuiu.il iu a iaiuKuui.i vciy new inua. ii
is true that he was remarkably successful
last winter in keeping the hot bloods Lu
their places aud preventing many mistakes
But there are other elements entering inta
this contest. The Urccnbackers have not yet
conceded the Democratic claim of having
a clear majority in the house They assert
very positively that they hold the balance
of power nnd declare that they will use it
to their own ndvanttige. General Butler is
not a member but he is a leader in whom
they trust and he is here working with the
Greenback members for as much control of
the patronage as possible. Besides this,
the Republicans ure too numerous for Dem
ocratic comfort, and some of the Democrat
admit that there is a possibility of the
Greenbackers helping theiu to die .speaker
ship. The Republicans, however, deny
this probably, and assort that they are de
termined to make no concessions to any
body. They will probably run (Jen. Gar
field and stick to him.
The excitement about tin- threatened con
test b, 'tween the president mid congress ia
very great, ami reminds me of the tim es of
Andy Johnson, when it was doubtful what
way lie would turn for a parly. The south
ern Democrats, who have stood by the pres
ident in his nominations, do nut give him
up; in fact ihey go so far its to cUim thnt
he will not veto the appropriation bills lo
calise of political matter they contain.
The Rcpublicittui, on the contrary, a.ssert
that h will stand by them and ly tin
election laws in the interest of fair elee
tions. The contest will giv,-rise to maiy
political discussions which will bo the
opening of the next canvass, and all the
candidates and would be candidate"" on
both side will take part in then. The in
terest in the first session of the 40th con
gress thus foreseen is so grist that a crowd
ed attendance is already promised, and
Washington will be fuller of politicians and
spectators than it has been since the wnr.
It is not likely that much general Iegtf
lation will bu attempted at this amnion al
though many jobs will com? in f .r a share
Since the adjournment of cougrev-s it is
discovered that tho appropriation usual -for
the courts amounting to about $3,000,000
