Senator from Kausas. lte.ud aud tiled.
Senator Plumb presented memorials of
tbe Legislature of Kansas, one asking that

Sr prlation bill, which passed with an ad

prevent tbe pledging on pension certificates
In any way.
The Tariff Bill was then taken up, and
Senator 11:11 inado argument to shov that
so long as thre remained any portion of
our lnterest-bearin? debt is payable at our
pleasure, It was absurd to sity that the
p'ibllo revenues were excessive, or that
t&cre was a surplus.
The greatest relief congress could give
the country would be given not by reduc

Uonal,deht. The amendment proposed by Senator
Beck last nlttbt reducing the internal reve

tobacco to eight cents per pouud was
sgreud to by a votes of 30 to 24.
Senator Bayard gave notice that at tbe

An Enthusiastic Meeting and the Best of
Brook r.rN, 5. T., Fehntary 10. The
Thirteenth Regiment of Brooklyn enter
tained Ocn. Fitzhugh Lee at dinner. His
health was proposed. As the rotoud form
and cheery face of (leu. Lee arose at tbe
bead of the table to respond, there was a
unanimous clinking of glasses and arousing
cheer, such as ouly soldiers can give.
Gen. Lev said he recollected hearing of an
Incident at Malvern Hill, where the Con
federate troops Aer ordered to chrrgothe
bastion fringed with Northern Are. Col.
Vance, pointing with bis sword to the
ft-unt, ami turning toward the fleeing
crowd In the rear, aald: "Go It, old Mul
ly Cotton. If I did not have a reputation
to save, I'd Join you In a run, too."
f Laughter. When some of the boys wont
home on parole at t he close of the war, one
sturdy old Confederate farmer re
fused to believe it hat Gen Lee had sur
rendered, and got over It by saying:
"Oh, it's that d-d Fltzhugh Lee who
surrendered. Old Oen. Lee never surren
ders. " Lnnghtar. "Leaving Joking
aside," said tbe General, "the meeting of
the soldiers of the two section! has a more
algulHcatit meaning than mere friendship.
It mvvnt that all sections were rendered
happy and prosperous, .yid hereafter those
sections were to walk side by side to the
music of the Union. They could declare
that the United States are bounded on tbe
uorth by ice and on the south bv bananas,
and anybody or nations that attempted to
force an.eutrunce will purely slip up. (Ap
plause, There Is no longer any section in
noSotitb.no Fast, no West. AH were
Americans, with a common flag, a com
mon country and a common destiny. He
saw the da'y when, that fraternity must
spread until" it embraces all States, aud
thus shall the great destiny of this Repub
lic be fulfilled. Time la a great healer,
and the South North are understanding
each other better, and now
the South was watchlug the welfare
of the Union. When two yew York
Senators Uft the United StatAi Senate not
long ago Trginia felt that perhaps another
case ofScccssion wastotako place, and
tbey examined their swpj-ds and read up

The star spangled banner, Oh, long may It
