The senate, on Saturday did nothing de
serving of mention.
Mr. Robinson of Fulton, by general con
sent, called up his resolution recommending
a reduction of tea per cent of salaries and
wages of officers and employes of the vari
ous state institutions, as ngrced iu the ap
propriation committee. A wrangle ensued,
Republicans objecting because. Robinson is
a Democrat, and tins would steal their
thunder. The resolution was finally sent
to the committee an appropriations, with
instructions to report next Friday.
Numerous bills were read a second time,
amended and ordered to a third reading,
the pending order, the revenue bills, having
been postponed until next Tuesday.
House bill 453, providing that disabled
firemen aud policemen may enjoy the bene
fits of a certain fund, was passed. Tho bill
relates particularly to Chicago, and is a
species of special legislation enacted every
6ession.in that locality.
More house bills were read a second time
and ordered to a third reading.
House bill 523, amending the law in re

(From onr Regular Correspondent.)
Washington, April 10, 1879.
Yesterday was a dull day at the eapitol.
The senate was discussing the eligibility
of Mr. Hell to a sent in that body, and the
house was debating a proposition to require
a three-fourths instead of a two-Uurds vote
to pass an appropriation bill. The debate
seemed stupid enough to (hose who had
been so recently enthused by the eloquence
of Oarlleld and Blackburn, thrilled by the
alarming cry of revolution, and amused
by the witty word duels of Conger and
Chalmers. But no debate iu the senate or
house, no matter how insipid and pointless
it may appear to those whoso taste has been
spoiled by condiments, is without its signif
icance aud weight. It shows the forte or
foible of some representative men, aye the
forte and foible of representative govern
ments. Indeed it does not requiro debate
to mako tho 40th congress interesting.
Perhaps the most interesting p'T
formance, to ono acquainted with
his country's recent history, is the
calling of the roll. What episodes and vol
umes of history do those names recall S
And how tamo and unheroic do tho wearers
of those names appear, sitting in their arm
chairs, poising their feet on their desks, or
furtively trying to smoko a cigar without
making any smoke. Can It be that tho
demi-gods who loom o grandly la history
were little meu too? The derth of news
has led me into these sterile reflections, and
NEW SERIES NO. 252.
I was also thinking what a creditable show
f forensic ability two ex-cabinet ministers,
now members t the house of representa
tives, have made during the last week. One
cabinet minister was General Grant's secre
tary of tho navy, the other was Jefferson
Davis's post master general. They are both
able men with large stomachs. Regan, waa
speaking yesterday, off-hand, on a very dry
subject, that of changing the rules, and he
was frequently interrupted by men of
his own party who were opposed to his
views, who plied him with questions and
sought to entrap him in contradictions..
But he was equal to ll his opponent) and
met every one of tlictn with a ready reply.
While he was speaking, Mr. Stephens, of
Georgia, tried to interject a little speech,
but the ex-cabinet officer was not much dis
posed to yield to the ex-vice president, wh
sits in a three-wheeled chair. Suppose
some lunatic had told those two gentlemen,
16 years ago, when one presided over tho
Confederate senate, and the other sat in tho
confederate cabinet, that the day would
come when they would both sit in the Lr.S.
congress, 'lliev would not have believml
the lunatic, nor would anybody in the world
have believed him. Then there is another
little, old, hut remarkably well preserved
man, whom nobody ever expected to see in
this congress or any other congress. When
this man dawned upon history ,or was it his
tory that dawned upon him? Well either
way eighteen years ago, it was as a great
military leader, a consummate strategist, a
twin sphinx and pheuix of war. Those of
us who do not pretend to be young ladies
remember well enough, what giants of
promise rumor and the press mode the.
Johnsons, McClellans, and Beauregards to
be iu those early, untried days of the war.
But it is not my intention to depreciate the
military ability of Gen. Joseph E. Johnson.
It was he that forced McClellan back from
the foothold that Grant finally maintained
and had he not been removed from the
front of Sherman, as ho was moving on At
lanta, the present General of the army
would not have had such an easy promen
ade to the sea. Geo. Johnson has not yet
made a speech. I don't think he is much
of au orator, but I once heard him in that
role. It was sixteen years ago when he wm
in command of the army of Tennessee,
with headquarters at Tulahoma. Business
had called him to KnOxville; where the en
thusiastic citizens serenaded him late at
night. He appeared on the balcony of the
hotel and told them, as well as I can re
member, that a little fighting was worth
more than all that music and enthusiasm,
that they would better be in bed,
but that he was glad to see so many able
bodied men from whom the confederate
ranks could be recruited. That was the
kind of a demagogue Gen. Jos. E. John
son was sixteen years ago. He has doubt
less changed since, with the rest of the
world, and would scarcely browbeat a band
of his constituents it they should give him
a serenade now. In his new role of
statesman he has more need of ballots than
bayonets. To make the historic tableau
complete Gen. Sherman was on the floor a
a spectator, aud here arc many of them, the
victorious and vanquished, living reminis
ences of those heroic days. Yesterday,
fourteen years ago, Leo surrendered 27,805
men, the remnant of the confederate army,
at Appomattox, and yesterday a Virginia
military company were the guests of a
Washington company, parading the princi
pal streets. In the evening a band of citi
zens met and drafted denunciatory resolu
tions ami made speeches condeming botli
the Washington and Virginia companies tor
omitting to carry the U. S. flag in their
But to get buck to congress Mr. S. S.
Cox made the only effective reply to Mr.
Reagan, ot Texas. When ho arose to
speak there was observed on his desk a
large, wry old looking volume, it proved
toht. tUo UUUi. If it. was Mr. Cox's own
book it had certainly been well thumbed.
He read nearly a chapter aud brought dow
tho house and galleries when ho repeated
tho text "Thou who sayest a man should
not steal, dost thou?" looking at Mr. Rea
gan, he said : I will not say "steal," be
cause that would not bo parlia
mentary. Such on unheard of perfor
mance as reading tho biblo produced a
marked impression on tho floor and a mau
in tho gallery, unable to control his cscite
meut, rose and cursed congress iu a loud
voice uaylng: "Woe! woe! woel unto this
den of thieves." Ho was quickly hustled
out, but it was somctlmo before order
could be restored.
