S EN ATE.
Washington, June 21 The chair
bffore the senate the bill amending
Thurman act relative to the Pacific
Senator Van Wyck desired this bill refer
red to the committee on public lands rather
than the committee on judiciary. It was
with some surprise he had learned from the
public press that the judiciary committee
had resolved not to act on any bill of the
kind this season. He supposd we should
express our acknowledgment to the press
for having given the senate this informa
tion. It would naturally be supposed the
committee of the senate would have
made its report first to the senate itself as
to whether it would not act, and particu
larly when this conclusion had been reach
ed after a conference with the railroad
Senator Hoar said the Senator from
Nebraska (VanWyck) was wholly mista
ken, of course unintentionally so, as to the
action of the committee.
Senator VanWyck insisted that for
twenty years the railroads had controlled
the government as shown in his opinion,
by the operations of the land department;
opinions of the Attorney-General and some
decisions of the supreme court. The Unio
Pacific had finally dispensed with their old
president and had got for a president, a
very respectable gentleman, from Massa
chusetts. That action may satisfy the
committee on judiciary of the senate and
may in their opinion justify the committee
in postponing action on these Pacific rail
roads, but it would not satisfy the people.
As he understood the matter, the judiciary
committee had resolved not to consider
until December next the -questions in
volved in the relation of railroads to the
government. This was a prejudgment of
the matter which the committee was not
warranted in making, and he, Van Wyck,
did not, therefore, want this bill referred
to the committee on judiciary.
Senator Garland said the special matter
referred to by the press was a different
matter to that covered by the bill from the
house. The committee was in no way
precluded from the consideration of that
bill, but he could not enter into the details
of the matter specifically alluded to.
After some further discussion Senator
Van Wyck withdrew his motion to refer
the bill to the committee on public lands,
and it was referred to the judiciary com

THE APPROPRIATION BILL.
The legislative appropriation as reported
by the senate appropriates $21,647,259, an
increase over the house bill of $1,037,402,
and a decrease from the estimates of $26,
042. The principal changes from the bill
as agreed upon by the house are an in
crease of $4,100,000 for salaries and ex
penses of collectors and deputy collectors
of internal revenue ; $136,000 for salaries
of agents, survevors and storekeepers in
the internal revenue service ; $610 for two
additional associate justices for Dakota
and an increase in the number of employ
ees of the different branches of the govern
ment from 7,202 to 7,759. This increase in
employees includes 225 in the pension
office and 90 in the general land office.
The salaries for senators are also included
in the increase and an appropriation of
$24,000 is made for payment of their salaries
being the bill repealing the preemption
and timber culture laws and amending
the homestead Jaws vas then antaogniz?d,
by Mr. Eaton, with the electoral count bill.
The house refused, yeas, SO ; nays, 17, to
consider the unfinished business.
Mr. Slocum secured the floor and sub
mitted a conference rpport upon the ship
ping bill. The report was agreed to with
out debate or division.
The electoral count bill was then taken
up and Mr. Hart addressed the house
favor of the senate measure.
Mr. Parker made a constitutional
ment against the Eaton bill.
Mr. Springer favored the Eaton bill, as
serting it was safer to leave the decision of
a disputpd presidential election to a joint
committee of the senate and house than to
a returning board or commission which
might be provided in any state.

The Irish Invasion.
Chicago, June 21. Irishmen interview

loons from which to drop dynamite upon
the cities of England as outlined m the
cable dispatches yesterday, ridicules the
proposition in every imaginable way. Jno.
F. Scanlan summed it up by declaring it
is evident some Milesian Munchausen is
having a heap of fun on the other side.
Col. Dan O. Sullivan, who was secretary
for the America of the 1SG7 movement,
said that no sane Irishman believes in
armed invasion. The futility of such ef
forts has been satisfactorily demonstrated ;
besides, Stephens had announced himself
as opposed to the dynamite pol'cy and
could not have originated the plan.
Pat Crowe, of Peoria, said Stephens once
had an opportunity to lead an armed re
bellion bu proved a coward and ran to
ssve his own neck. He declares, however,

Delighted and Enthusiastic
Augusta, June 21. Early this morning
the streets began to assume a lively ap
pearance and long before the time for the
committee appointed by the national con
vention to notify James G. Blaine of his
nomination lo the presidential candidacy
of the republican party to perform that
duty, a considerable crowd had collected
around Augusta house to gszi with curios
ity upon the members of the committee.
THE CIRCUS BEING ALSO IN TOWN.
brought out vast numbers of people who
with the allied attractions of the national
committee and sawdust ring seemed dispos
posed to make the day a general holiday.
Promptly at 11 o'clock the national com
mittee ol notification proceeded in a body
to Blaine's residence and were received by
Mrs. Blaine. As the day was oppressively
hot and the rooms of the mansion crowded
almost to suffocation, it was suggested that
the presentation address be made upon
the lawn. Accordingly the committee ani
guests proceeded to a well shaded portion
of the grounds, where a semi-circle was
formed and all present stood with uncov
ered heads, making an impressive scene.
The rustling of the spreading branches of
the great elms and the buzzing of insects,
was the only sound to disturb the stillness.
When all were in readiness Mr. Blaine
was escorted to the lawn, where he stood
within the arch of the semi circle.
then stepped forward and presented the ad
dress of the committee. Reading from a
manuscript, he spoke as follows:
Mr. Blaine, your nomination for presi
dent of the United States by the national
republican convention receatly as
sembled in Chicago is already
known to you. The gentlemen
before you constituting the committee com
posed of one member from each state and
territory of the country, and one from the
District of Columbia now come as
THE ACCREDITED ORGAN
of that conyention to give you a formal no
tice of your nomination and to re
quest your acceptance thereof. It is of
cou;se known to you that besides
your own several other names among the
mot honored in the council of the repub
lican party were presented by their friends
as candidates for this nomination. Between
your friends and the friends of the gentle
men so justly entitled to the respect and
confidence of their political associates,
the contest W3S one of
tice. At an
any taint of

the republ : tn

success to the ticket, earnestly desired your
nomination. It was equ Sly manifest that
the desire so earnertly expressed by the del
egates of those states was but the truthful
reflection of the irresistible popular de
mand. It is not thought nor pretended
that this demand had its origin in any
ambitious desires of your own or in the or
ganized work of your friends, but it was
recognized to be what it truthfully is,
A SPONTANEOUS EXPRESSION.
by a free people of love and admiration of
a cho-en leader. No nomination would
have given satisfaction to every member of
the party. This could not be expected in
a country so extended in area and so va
ried in interests. The nc initiation of Lin
coln in 1S60 disappcinted so many hopes,
and overthrew so many cherished ambi
tious that for a short time the disaffection
threatened to ripen into
in 1S72, the discontent was so pronounced
as to impel large masses of the party to
organize in opposition to its nominees and
for many weeks after the nomination of
Garfield in 1SS0. Defeat seemed inevita
ble. In each case the shock of disappoint
ment was followed by sober second
thought. Individual prefeieuces grad
ually yielded to convictions of public
duty and the promptings of patriotism
finally rose superior to the irritation and
animosities of hour and the party in every
trial has grown stronger in the face of
threated danger, in lendering you the
nomination, it gives us pleasure to re
member the great measures which

Blaine listened to Gee. Henderson's ad
dress, STANDING UNDER AN ELM TREE,
with his arms folded on his chest and his
eyes usually cast down but at times wan
dering about and scrutinizing the faces of
the audience. When General Henderson
had concluded speaking, Walker Blaine,
the candidate's son, stepped forward and
handed his father the manuscript of the ad
dress in reply :o that of committee.
MR- BLAINE THEN READ
as follows: Mr. chairman and gentlemen
of the national commiite : I receive, not
without deep sensibility yjur tfficial no
tice of the action of the national conven
tion already brought to my knowledge
through the public press, I appreciate more
profoundly than I can express, the honor
which is implied in my nomination for the
presidency by the republican party
of the nation speaking through the au
thoratiye voice oi duly accredited delegates
to be selected as a candidate by such an as
semblage from amongst the eminent states
men whose names were presented, fills me
with embarrassment. I can only express
my gratitude for so signal an honor, and
my desire to prove worthy o.f the great
trust reposed in me.
IN ACCEPTING THE NOMINATION
as I now do, I am impressed, I am also
oppressed with a nse of the labor and re
sponsibility which attaches to my position.
The burden is light-ued, Lowever, by the
host of earnest men who support my candi
dacy, many of whom add, as does your
hononble ommttlee, the cheer
of personal friendship to the pledge of
political fealty. A more formal accept
ance will naturally be expected and will
in due season be communicated. It may,
however, not be inappropriate to this time
to say that I have already made a careful
study of the principles announced by the
national convention and in whole and de
tail they have my heartiest sympathy and
MEET MY UNQUALIFIED APPROVAL.
Apart from your official erand gen
tlemen, I am extremely happy to welcome
you all to my house, with many of you I
have already shared the duties of public
services and have enjoyed a most cordial
friendship. I trust your journey from all
parts of the great republic has been agree
able, and that during your stay in Maine
you will feel that you are
NOT AMONG STRANGERS,
but with iriends. Invoking the blessing of
God upon the great cause which we jointly
represent, let us turn to the future with
out fear and with manjy hearts. At the
conclusion of Mr. Blaine's reply the mem
bers of the committee were introduced to
him individually and an hour was spent
in social and informal converse. The
members of the committee then repaired
to the residence of Col, Osgood, where thev
were entained at lunch at one o'clock, anil
left for Portland where they will have a
reception this evening.

Rumor of Huntington.
New York, June 21. A report as yet en

Street late this afternoon that Col. S. P.
Huntington of Central Pacific railway
fame, had failed.
Senator Van Wyck's attack on the Pacific
stocks and the marked decline of Northern

may have started the story, but other
stocks in which Huntington is reported to
be interested held up well. The Chespeake

the friends of Huntington denied positive
