Washinoton. April 20. The Senate
pas-ed the army hill this afternoon and it
is now before the president. Thu Reiuh
hcanii who are nearest in Hayes' cwlMeiice
are firm in their hv'.ief that he wi. I veto it.
altliouijh lie has iu times t:o;:c 1 y said lie
was willing t sir. a hill repealing the
troops-at-the-polls clause. The D-.'tnocrats
think that in the weakness of the man lies
the probability that he will veto the 1-il!
He certainly is anxious to gratify the stal
warts. Lately your 'correspondent came
into possession of intorstatioa that warrants
the positive assertion that it is the presi
dent's intention to veto the hill: in fact the
veto message is now in rouuh shape, and
expected to S'.-ad it to congress in
the early part of next week. These facts
are obtained from undoubted authority,
such as would be immediately recognized
it yeur corre?'u lent was at iioerty to give
the s ui.-rc.
work on rt cr.rc wpovements.
At the cabinet meeting to-day it was
practically dec: led that none of the money
appropriate! in the river aud harbor bill of
eight millions, passed la-: winter, and to
g:i into effect after the 1st of July, should
be expended for some time to come. At
ha-t. tiie administration takes the ground
that with the heavy :ra:n upon the treasury
for the payment of arrears of pensions and
a reduced revenue because of a reduced
taxation, the government is not able to
spend the m'Uiey. When it v.-us suggested
that some of the items of the appropiiatiou
were f r neceary and important works,
the members of the cabinet said that yet the
condition of the treasury wuld uot permit
of any expenditure of this character for
several months at least. It will be remem
bered that Grant once made a discrimina
tion in a river and harbor bill passed by
congress, and stated what amounts should
be expended, and what should
uot, aud that a debate ensued in cougrcs?
on tliis assumption of power. The Demo
crats, and ir. fact, many Republicans, held
that after signing the law he had no other
course exiypt to execute it. If Hives
pursues the policy adopted in the cabinet
to-day it may lead to further action by
rKOSPECT FOP. GORE.
There is a promise of cither considerable
ainus "ineut or bloodshed growing out of
the political debute in congress. Jack L'
iran N happy to-night because he ha, so to
speak, received a clialh i:ge from Co!. Loive,
the Greenback congressman from Alabama.
A few days ago there was published here
tin interview with Col. Lowe, in which he
was reported as saying that he fought iu
the confederate service with three regi
ments of troops from Illinois, and that the
men in those regiments assured himthat their
regiments were raised by John A. Logan.
In Monday's National Rcpublieuii of this
city Logan published a card, denying the
Hiateineut as being maliciously fahto. He
related his side of thu story in liricf
ns follows: That iu ISfit Thorndyko
Rrooks, living at Marion, William
son county, 111., with IS or 20 young;
men crossed the. Ohio fiver near Padueah
Ky., and became ntinehcd to the 13th Ten
ncsseo regiment, of which Rrooks after
ward became tho Heiiteimnt-colonul. After
the war, Logan says, a man named Wheat
ly, confined in the poor-hoiiso at Cairo,
nude an affidavit chiirgiiitf that he (L"gnn)
raised and recruited 70 merf in Williamson
county, AYlu-tttly heinrx oneot them ; that ho
took them across tho Ohio river, and then
deserted tlirmt that Whoatly afterward
admitted that he was paid to commit the
perjury, ns the affidavit wa3 wanted to do
feat Logan in his candidacy at that time
for congress; that in 1S;, the affidavit was
published in the New York World, at
which time Col. Brooks wrote a letter, giv
ing the lie direct to the story. In closing
his card Logan says he brand
the statements r.s a lie and Lowe and the
correspondent can settle between them
selves. Since the publication of this card
Lowe has been consulting with his near
f: iends, nnd to-d;.y sent by one of them, a
Xiv. Pclham, of Nurth Carolina, a letter to
Logan. Gen. Logan says that when Pel
ham presented tho letter he stated that he
came on :t delicate mission, and intimathi''
that if an amicable adjustment could not
be made, the letter was to be understood
ns demandini' n retraction of tbo. use of
the words lie and liar in the card to the
Republican. At tliis Gen. Logan says he de
clined to receive the letter, and sent Pel
ham back with it to Col. Lowe
with n message more emphatic than polite.
Col. Lowe states that he is of the impression
that he told the interviewer three compan
ies, and not three regiments, nnd that in so
stating he was repeating what lie had k-en
informed of by Illinois men. To-night his
friends state that as Logan lias not replied
to the first letter a second one will he dis
patched to him in the morning; that Lowe
is a cool-headed nnd careful, yet determin
ed man, and while he will not be rash, yet
will not be trilled with. Gen. Logan says,
as he told Pclham to-day, that lie will not
hold any communication with Lowe until lie
makes a retraction of the charge as public
as the statement, and that if there is a dis
crepancy iu the interview as published Col.
Lowe must settle it with the interviewer.
, i.e wc and the nn. oi.oii isTs.
A' few weeks since it was stated in these
dispatches iu connection with Prof. Riley's
resignation nt the agricultural bureau, that
he could not hold pleasant relations with
Commissioner Lc Due, and that the position
of entomologists thus made vacant was
tendered to Prof. Cyrus Thomas of Illinois
and by him refused, after learning the
facts regarding Trof. Riley's resignation
Soon after this statement was made the
Associate'! Press was given the item that
Thomas had accepted. Now it is announced
that advices have been received from him
emphatically denying the Associated Tress
dispatch. The truth is that Le Due stands
very low in the estimation of scientific men,
and notte of thenr care to leave anything to
do with him.
IIlTiT. RUT NOT RESENTFUL.
THE GENTLE "AMY PAYS HER HESPEtTSTO
THE EI'.ISK "PI! ACTIC.VL."
Mr. Editor. Dear Sir:
Will you please, sir. let me hrtve a little
room in your paper : You were so jjood as
to print what I said before. I am very
much obliged to you for doing it, and Inm
proud to see any thing I can say in The
Billetin for I think it is such a nice pa
per; especially on Sunday mornings when
you put sjiuc verses in it. I always did so
dote on verses.
I want to say t ) that woman ''Practical''
that I am sorry she don't like me; and to
tell her I am uot a bit proud, because "Old
Trim" asked me to write some more for tho
paper. I don't know him, and I don't see
how he can know me, unless he has scon mo
somewhere sometime when I didn't know
it. 'Taint for him I'm writing now, certain ;
I only want to talk a bit to that woman.
Don't you think it is a kind of mean in
"Practical" to get so mad at mo for noth
ing at a'!; ! "Old Trim" is not your hus
band, is he? If he is I don't want him,
i madam. I'll let you know. I've got lots of
admirers without yours, I have. You
needn't call mc "doll baby-faced" and all
i those kind of nanus. I can't help being
1 little and dimpled ; and if people will think
me a "pretty little thing" I can't help that,
cither. Everybody always did do it, but it
don't make me vain, a bit; because I am
use 1 to it, I guess; nnd I do love fine tilings;
I and I intend to dress ns nicely as ever I
j can. no matter what you all say. I know
I good clothes are becoming, and I know nil
I the men folks like to see women well dres
! sed. Maybe if I were a great, cranky, flat
I backed thing, ug'.y as sin, and come stri
ding into church like a grenadier, every
Sundav, like gome folks I could
name, I wouldn't care how I dressed either,
but I am not, and I don't, and I do cure,
and I mean to look as well as over I can,
every time I go out. So long as I don't
owe for my tine things I don't see whose
business it is how handsomely I turn out.
.May be vou a're one of the ladies that I was
told about, last week, "Practical;" If you
are then that's why you fly out at me so;
and if jam are, I don't care, one ceut. And
what's more I've got nine unities of these
very wemen who owe Mrs. McL. and Mrs.
W. and Mrs. S. big bills, nnd like enough
yoiir's is one of them. Any way if any ot
you run me too close I'll send
every namo I've got te tho
tlio editor to have them put In print, nnd
I'll pop tho figure down, right opposite to
thorn too. Then how will you help It, I'd
liko to know! Any of you? It does spoil
my pleasure to look ' at tine clothes that I
l.no-f arp not paid for, and I should think

it would anybody's. I know I love to
dress, but I tell you, "Practical," I'll never .
dress at your expense; or nt any one else's.
Why, it tairly makes mo afraid to
see ladies come into church and
bow down their heads to pray,
when I know the very bonnets they havo
on are not paid for. I seem to see tho poor,
unpaid milliner standing right behind them
waiting for her money, aud trying to think
that no head that bows down to pray could
wear a hat not paid for. I think it will
take nn awful sight of mighty hard pray
ing to pay up fur the last Easter Sunday
hats and things, that were not paid for.
Now, I don't pretend to bo smarter than
most folks, and I expect I do like to hear
pretty things said about me, but there is
one thing, sure; I'm an honest little body
nnd owe no one for anything; not even for
my dimples. And I don't want you l,Pra
ctical," or any one else, to feel jealous of me.
I never trouble any body, unless they come '
down too hard ou me. I don't want to act
old ami sour and ugly, nnd fuss nt every
thing and every body.
What do you mean about them measures
anyhow ? There isn't a peck measure about
my house, nor any other kind of a one, that
I know of. I have got nothing to measure.
I wish you would not talk in that funny
way; I dou't seem to understand you some
how; and I do wish you'd just let mc bo
. Are you old and ugly as well as .
cross ? If you are I'm real sorry for you.
It must be so bad to be ugly. Ittaybo if
you dressed nicer you would be prettier aud
feel better. I always feel best w hen I am
nicely fixed up and looking my best. How
did you happen to know that "Hubby" call
ed me his "flighty," pretty little "Amy?"
Did lie tell you himself ? I guess I'd bet
ter stop now.
Dear Mr. Editor. If you think tliis is as
good ns my other piece was and put it in
the paper, I'll be so glad. Hubby says I'm
getting to be rmitc a blue-stocking I am
not tho' ; I don't like that color I always
wear pink and w hite ones.
Your true friend, Amy.
