WASMttOTos CtTT, Dec 21. The senate
had a del site yesterday oa the question of
Uu recognition of the "United State of Bra
ll," all the Democrats, except Call, favoring
immediate recognition, and all the Repub
liclrn advocating a reference to tha foreign
relations committee and a "go slow policy.
One feature of tbe debate, however, was com
mon to both sldea, ami tliat waa that the
United State should make itaelf responsible
fisr the maiutenauce of the republic when it
diould be established. The Democrats went
to the extreme in their interpret ntiou of the
Mouroe doctrina, U Morgan's eech was in
Jorsml by tbem (ami it keetned to be), and
leaired to give notj.-e tliat no change from
the present alleged status iu Brnzil would he
1 ennilted except in the further development
if a republic.
aiorgan sh the Moaroa noctrlno.
Morgan brought the matter up on the res
olution be offered Wednesday, formally rec
anislug the Brazilian republic. He paid a
U h coiiipliuieut to the patriotWin ami good
new of the late Emperor Dom I'edro, and
1'ien pcoeiMjdeil to apply vhe Mouroe doctriue
I Urn cae. He declared that tbe attitude of
l ie Viiitad States in respect to all tlie coun
tries on the western hemisphere was a very
tntiuct one, ami had been reaswerted upon
every opportune occswioit fnun the date of
it announcement down to the lat iuuai;e
of the president of the United States. ' He
coincided in the declaration made by Thomas
lelTerson that it was tbe buinea and duty
of the I'nited States to proceed to make, to
priH;re, in making, and ultimately to con
iiimiut!e in making of the Wiiern hemis
phere the home of republican io,itutimis,
snd not the home of despotic institution.
Wanted Congress to 1M-Ile.
The quantum be wauted congreHs to decide
was a hether Braxll w as an empire or a re
public whether the houieof Kragamui or
tlieieopl of ltra7.il were the depository of tbe
sovereign power of that state. The answer
to that question, while It was perfectly clear
uow, uilKht become clouded by later events,
and he thought it unwise to await these
later events. He wanted cor grew to an
nounce the fact that tha empire bad disap
peared in Braril and that the republic exist-
if, aftor this day, the imperial power
should reappear In Hrnzil that reapiearance
would be in the nature of a new and fre-b
power ami tbe re-establishiiient of the em
pire would I against the Monroe doctrine,
and in spite of it. The congress of the I'nited
MUite bad the absolute right to re:-ognixe
tbe non-ex ihtence of the empire and tbe ex
istence of the republic, and he dexired to
have that recognition pla-ed on record
plainly, luldly he would n..t Mty detiautly.
View of sUierauaa. Kvarl. ami lngalla,
Hhernian said that he ympnlhized with
tlw senator from Alahama, aud hoped tbat
the recent movement in Brazil might lead to
tlie eatablishment of a firm, strong, powerful
republic, a kindred sinter of the republic of
the L'uited Slates. It was a great event one
of the grealent events in modern times. But
a question of grave importance arose, and
that question waa whether the time liad come
for congress to undertake to recognize this
new iower among the powers of tbe world.
In view of the fact that congress was just on
tbe verge of the holiday be thought it would
be well to refer the matter to the committee
on foreign relation. In conclusion tbe sen
ator paid a warm tribute to Doin I'edro, the
deposed monarch, and said tbat there was
certainly a lingering feeling of respect due
him which should prevent hasty actum.
Morgan disclaimed any responsibility for
any trouble that ought arise from the de
lay. K verts favored reference, and said it wax
not necessary to emphasize American views
on this iiicstiou. Ingnlls desired to bear
from the ple of Brazil before acting.
Mcpherson Impatient of Itrlat.
Mcl'herwm aaid that a single hour's delay
in passiug tbe resolution would lie disgrace
ful to the government, to the senate and to
the eople of the United Statist. lie wa
surprised that a moment should I lost iu
saying to the people of Brazil tbat they bad
the sympathy of the American people and
congress, ami Hint the new republic would
have the protec tion of the I'nited States, so
far as it could be offered.
Eustis was of similar opinion, w hile Ilnw
ley was like lngalla he wanted tbe Bra
sillan people to awefc; only twenty -five r
thirty men with an army olTlcer at their
head bad so far bad anything to say.
Characterised as a Dictatorship.
Teller sustained the motion to refer. There
waa no government in Brazil except an ab
solute and unqualified dicta torsbip. Sup
pose the leaders did not ap-al to the people,
and the people were not heard from, would
Uiat lie a repubjicf If we recognized the pro
visional government there as tbe ruianent
government, wa might strengthen the hands
of tbe very uieu who are changing a limited
monarchy, with a liberal monarch, for a dic
tator. Teller characterized as unfounded
the supposition tbat tbe powers of Europe
woul.l interfere to prevent the establishment
of a republic in Brazil. The day hail passed
a beu the monarch's of Europe dared say to
the people of any country on the western
beiiii .pliere that they shaM not select their
own rulers iu their owu wav.
Th Qnestlon of Nlavery.
i'lumb referred to the Brazilian revolution
as a police revolution. The llrst accounts of
it stated that the slave-hohl.-rs objected to
the eiuaiieliuttion of tle-lr slave by the em
peror, aud that tlie republic was an associa
tion of iierson wuo objected to the lilieration
of tlM-tr iIsvm, and It ltal not seem to hiin
tbat ttiot laid a prois-r foundation f.ir a re
public. He hoped that was not the reasou
for the syuiutthy of the senator from Ala
bama il organ.
Edmuuda wanted to know tliat Brazil waa
a republic before Uncle Ham ssike.
Teller' Method of KaaoDrsfrmcnt.
Teller oftVred an amendment to the resolu
tion, which he asked to have also referred to
the commit tee on foreign relations. It was
to the effect that when the people of Brazil
shall signify their intention lu establish a
republican form of government it will be
th) duty of the government of the L'uited
States to furnish material aid aud encour
agement to tbe people of Bread in the main
tenance of such a form of government, if
such government be assailed by foreign gov
ernments on account of Ita republican char
acter. That, Teller said, looked like prac
tical encouragement to the people of Braxll,
and it would be saying to ail the word that
ai far as Brazil was concerned they must
teep their hands off. This closed the de
bate. CONGRESS IN SHORT ORDER.

New Yokk, Dec, 2L R. O. Dun & Ca'e
weekly review of trade says to-day: Mild
weather causes increasing trouble. Perhaps
the coal trade suffers most; many collieries
in Pennsylvania have stopped, throwing
over 4,000 men out of employment, and great
suffer iug results. The dry goods and boot
and shoe trades are much affected, and in
some quarters even the holiday trade is re
st ricted by the unseasonable weather. The
bad state of tbe country roads cuts off much
trading, and renders many retail dealers un
able to meet their obligations. Collections
are slow. At Philadelphia unfortunate em
barrassments in the clothing trade are feared
unless winter weather comes.
Troubled hr farmers' Alliance.
In some southern states trade ia seriously
affected for tbe time by the 0svation of
farmers' alliances, which enlist farmers in
co-operative trading, and absorb money
which might otherwise go to settle indebted
ness with merchants. Tbe results in some
localities almost paralyze trails. But tbe
general tenor of reports as to the condition
of business, excepting as temporarily affected
by the weather, is by no means unfavorable.
The volume of trade continues larger than a
year ago, ami though the comparative in-a-tivity
usual as this season everywhere ap
pears, transactions still show a fair increase,
especially in the holiday trade.
Hendlna; Coals to Newcastle.
Tlie iron business seems for the moment a
shade less promising. Dealings are now
small, most of the heavy consumers having
supplied themselves at lower prices than
those now asked. As a surprising reversal of
the usual order of things, it is noted than an
English order for 10,0tJ tons of pig iron has
been received with a margin of $4 per ton
delimited, and an English house has asked
price on UTi.OilO feet of wrought iron pipe,
which is said to lie si lling at 11 cents net,
against N.iit cents net in this country.

The exsirts in Novemher appear to have

breadsturTs, provisions, cattle and petroleum
having been over (15,00(1,000. But since Dec
1 the export trade has been a little smaller,
showing for three weeks a decrease of 1S'-
per cent Money is still close here, but in
sufficient supply for legitimate business at
western and southern points generally. The
treasury has made heavy disbursements, and
foreign exchange has advanced an eighth
during the week. The general level of prices
has scarcely changed.
