WAsnisoTON, April 22. The bill report
ed by Alexander Stephens, from the com
mittee on coinage, to provide for the ex
change of subsidiary silver coins for law
ful money of the United States and for
other puposes, passed the house without
any material opposition, it being generally
regarded as a much needed measure of re
lief to retail tradesman.
who is now best known in the house aj the
"advertising agent for the Okolona States,"
got the floor again to-day and read editor

intended to fire the southern heart and ac
companied it with a circular issued to
subscribers, showing the large increase ot
circulation of late. The tactics pursued
by Frye in this matter appear to disturb
and annoy the Democracy; hence his persis
tency in drawing it on them at every op
portunity DAVID DAVIS.
Much curriosity was manifested to hear
Senator David Davis to-day on the army bill
as it was a matter of much speculation as to
how he would vote, although the Republi
cans have been claiming that he was with
them. His speech, however, clearly fore
shadowed his purpose to vote fur the amend
ments, and lands him squarely in the Dem
ocratic camp. He said the election livs.

The special order, senate aud house drain

session occupied in its discussion.
Mr. Bent moved to amend section S by
striking out the clause which provides that
three drainage commissioners be appointed,
and insert a clause which makes every
township a drainage district and makes the
commissioners of highways Hnd supervisors

The bill was then, with a number of
amendments, presented and referred to the

charged by stock-yards for feed, yardage,
Ac., by law, introduced by Mr. Elliott, was
taken up and nearly the entire forenoon
was occupied in an effort to substitute com

bill was ordered to a third reading. Before
going to a third reading the bill was
amended by the house fixing the rates as
follows: For yarding aud watering cattle

THE C. & ST. L. R. R. MACHINB
We are not in a condition to judge f
the extent or importance of the machine
shops of the Narrow-gauge railroad, which
seem, just now, to be upon the market.
The newspapers of Sparta and Murphyv
boro are urging the citizens of their respec
tive localities to raise the required bonui,
and securo-the location of the shops, etc.
basing our estimate of the magnitude of
these works upon the amount of rolling
stock on the road, wo are not disposed to
invest them with much importance. But,
if there is "a bargain in them" for Sparta
or Mtrphysboro, they would uot prove les
valuable to Cairo. The Sparta Plaindealer
deals with the subject as follows.
Tic Cairo and St. Louis railroad com
pauycontemplate removing their shops t
some other point along the line. Several
town) aro making etlbrts to secure theru,but
if Sjarta will muKc tUo proper effort she
will jet the shops, as the company looks up
on Sjarta as the most convenient point for
them along the line. But like all com
paniis, a handsome consideration will in
duce them to pass by a few natural advaa
tagesand plant their shops where it will best
pay, for a time at least.
Tomake sure of the shops Sparta must
do something, and how would it do to offer
the cunpany one million brick with which
to build them. If they aro put up shed
fashioa, tho company, like the Arabs caa
fold tU'iu up and silently steal away at an;
time, tut when built in a substantial man
ner they will not be removed lor a song.
To furnish this million brick our citizens'
need not necessarily shell cut the ready
cash, Let a uiectinir be held, and let that
meeting appoint one or more superinten
dents to open a yard and make the brick.
Let all ot our merchants subscril: Ubcrallv.
the subscription payable in goods, and let
tho superintendent issue orders on theso
merchant to the amount of such subscription
to pay the laborers. Professional men and
