Special to the Republican.
Sprinokield, 111., April 19. Tiie senate
had a quorum, but the house did not. Both
houses disposed of some routine business
and advanced their calendars, the business
of the house being reading house and sen
ate bills a first time, cleaning up this order,
reading all the appropriation bills passed
by the senate yesterday.
A joint resolution of the senate was pass
ed urging congress to pass ex-Senator Ogles
by's bill in relation to swamp lands, when
the oil inspection bill was reached, which
met with opposition. A call of the house
was ordered, and no quorum being present
it adjourned until next Monday at 9 :20 a.m.
It seems that the powerful insurance lob
by that lias been at work in session and out
ol session about the general assembly the
past winter has not been idle, and that it will
be impossible to inaugurate any reform hi
insurance matters in tins state. This obbv
has so manipulated affairs that auy meas
ure ol reform is sure of death when the
roll is called on its passage. No sDeeches
are made, these have all been said Ion
since; nothing but an answer to the seuto
riau tones of Clerk Taylor, and that is the
end of it, as was shown in the house on the
passage of Mr. Hart's bill which was ijrno
ruinously defeated. It is said there is much
meritin the measure, and that it would es
tablish needed reforms, but the lobby was
too strong for it.
A quorum was present and an eflbrt was
made to adjourn, which failed. Senate bills
on second reading were considered as fol
No. 362, providing for an act to prohibit
the officers ot free schools and teachers
therein from being interested in the sale of
school books and school apparatus. The
bill provides in conclusion that a convic
tion shall work a torfciture of office and
revocation of the teacher's certificate, also a
tine of not less thnu $200 and nol more
than $1,000, said fines to go to the school
fund. The bill was ordered to a third read

Wash.noton, April 19, 1879.
The Lenten season is now over, aad there
will be a brief revival ol Rocial gayety, be
fore Washington, enervated by heat and
nnlaria, becomes a "deserted village"
tho wealthy will sowi betake themselves to
seaside and mountain resort, while the wan
government clerk will rind a cheap (ward
ing house a few miles out of the city where
brepr.es from clover fields will in some de
gree counteract the effect of tho miasma
that he inhales during the day. Last week
in an eloquent peroration, Senator Hoar
said, among other pretty things, that he
had seen the sun rise over Mont. Rlanc.
Senator Thunnan, in replylug, said that he
liad never seen tho sun rise over Mont.
Riant- but that he had beheld the lnaldlua
malaria steal up from the swaaips of the
PotowK. Everybody in .Washington has (
IV Ii IV j' a a.'LJ HT ctt.
seen and inhaled the insidious malaria that
steals up from the swamps of the Potomac.
The only reason for keeping the National
Capital here where ill health in the forma
of dyspepsia, and all mulavial diseases pene
trates everything, even legislation, u thai
millions f dollars have been spent to build
a city amid swamps, and because there ii
too 'much jealousy among the cities that
would contend for the Capitol to make it
possible for our legislature to agree on a lo
cality. But the Capitol must be mored
sooner or later, there is every reason, sani

moval. Give us a Capitol on a hill, on

Last week the roar of debalo waa heard

"- "iwlt House, mis wcck urates in toe
senate, Hoar, Blaine, Logan, Beck, an J
Dawes, have all made "great efforts," ami
Voorhets, Morgan, and others have yet to
be heard from. Senator Beck concluded
his speech yesterday, and was followed by
Mr. Dawes, who consumed an hour or more.
In the midst of Senator Dawes' speech Sen
ator Wade Hampton entered the chamber
for the first time, Senator Butler, his col
league, announced his presence and desired
that he be sworn in. He was conducted to
the president's desk and the oath was ad
ministered by Senator Thunnan, president
Senator Withers, who has charge of the
Military bill, said he hoped th
senate would be able to reach a vote by th
middle of next week, and in order to make
that practical, he suggested that the daily
sessions be conducted to a latter hour than
nsual. Senator Morgan has the floor to-
ilay, and he may be relied upon for one of
the most notable speeches 1 that this con
test will produce. He will be followed by
Senator Vorhces, unless some Republican
senator shall express a desire to speak to
day. Yesterday afternoon no notice had
been given from that side. The oratont
of that side would rather follow Mr. Voor
hees than have him come after them1

Ilaxly set the example of popularizing
science, and reduciug to familiar
language, aud explaining Uy
familiar illustrations, those ideas whicla
had before been expressed only in obstruse
technical phraseology. Now we have their
imitators all over the country. 'Astronomy

are beyond the comprehension of thaw
