Kennedy took the floor nnd mode nn Impassioned speech In bis own de fense. It wns an effective stump speech, abounding plentifully In dema KOfiUm. For this reason, perhaps, Kennedy was enthusiastically applauded at Its close by the Republicans. I'crhaps bo was applauded because be refrained from reading the big bumllo of newspaper clippings lie shook at the House and which he claimed, with ono or two Re publican exceptions, Indorsed his speech. Ho also shook a sheaf of let ters at tlio IIouso which ha said bad llowetl In on him from every part of the country, from Malno to Califor nia and from tho Lakes to the Gulf, which Indortcd his speech word by woid, lino by line, lu spirit and letter. From there bo deduced tho conclusion that his utterances were fully and thor- uglily approved by the people. It tlncsn t teem to have occurred to htm that thotowho did not write to him failed to approve of his speech. .Judge Stewart then said a fo:v words and moved tbe previous (piestion. On this the yeas and nays were ordered. The previous question was ordered, and llio loll whs culled on the aduptlon of the expunging resolution. It win Hilopted. yeas 151, nays :, and Mr. Kennrtiy'i speech Is officially as though it had not been uttered. Mr. Kennedy In his speech said tint be had asked tbe Committee on the Judiciary either to let the speech appear In the lietord entire or to strike (tout entire. He was willing to stand before tbceopleof America on that speech, believing that tbe people of this conn tiy In the first judgment and In their sober secocd Judgment would approve the words he hid uttered. Itofenlng to the portion of the speech delivered In Philadelphia last night by Speaker Heed, In which the speaker rpoko of tbe House as being tbe repre sentative hotly of tbe people, he said that be knew of no ptulU iiientai.v body In the land that represented the people of tbe United States so fully, so com pletely and so entirely as the body to v.hleh he belonged.

The Senate this morning pasted the Senate bill supplementary to an act en titled an act to authorize the construc tion of the Haltlmorc and I'otomtc Railroad In tho District. A proviso was added that nothing in Hi c act, and no expenditure to be made under It, shall be hold or construed to clve the railroad company any rlelit, legal or equitable, not now possessed to retain the passenger depot on Sixth street.

Ills first visitor was a short. thick-set, slrungu man, with a dark beard, who asked a number of green qmsllons about tending a draft to some neighboring town. The next man to enter was a tall person, also a stranger, who, seeing tbat the assistant cashier wss engaged, and, apparently, being In no hurry, stood In the middle of the floor, opened wide a large newspaper, and seemed to be reading. Tbe third man of the pirty. who had also come In, was a lightly-built young fellow, with a smooth face. The tat ter's mo emeriti were completely bidden fiom tbe cashier's sight by tbe tall man, who stood up holding tbe spread-out newspaper. Suddenly the young man. unseen, dropped upon his bands and knees and crept around the counter toward the open vault of the bank and to where Assistant Cashier Hauer was sitting. Tbe young man had asaadclub in his hand, probably to knock Mr. Hauer unconscious, but before be got near enough a young woman briskly tillered tbe bank. Tbe tall man with tbe newspaper turccd sharply around, still holding the tbiet si that the lady could not see in the direction of tbe cashier. 'What do you iblnkof this picture?" he asked, and then quickly added: "Some one is calling you f row the other side of the street." The youBg wouutu quickly stepped away froca the waa and shrieked out: "The)' are robbers. Tbtie's one saeakiBe oa his bauds awl kuets. Ixok out. Eiuitr, they neaa to klltjou." CasbU-i Hauer quickly turned, seUed hi pistol, sad the next woaaeat the tk-iee would be burglars dashed for tbe door and escaped.

The attorney argued that Hitltough the name was tpt'lled dliTercntly, Augustus Pick erson was none other than Augustus Dickinson. Objection was made to the Introduction of this document, where only two letters may mean $1,000,000 lost or won; but the Court allowed It to go In. - Dickinson denied that the doc ument was made by him.

Qoldwln Smith, president of the club, mmle nn ndtlress In which ho said that "the McKInley btll ta n great disaster and will be folt much more by Cnnstllan fatmers than by Ibotc having nothing to lose by it who can afford to recefvo It with trumpet notes of patriotic dc fiance. Ktntlnml tutvlvcd under protection, but she his trcbktl hrr wealth uutlcr free trade. The McKInley bill Is not pointed ngnlnst Canada, It Is n measure of do mestic, not or fotelizn policy." In proof of this Jlr. Smith read n letter by Senator Shetmnn to Mr. Wlnian, In consequence of n letter written to Mr. VVIroan by Smith. In this letter Mr. Sherman says: "Tho provisions of the McKInley bill no doubt apply with soino severity to CaniulH, but the bill Is general In Its ap plication to all countries. I do believe that with a llltlo forbearance and moder ation on both sides of the line the feel lug will become universal here that spe cial nttsiijii merits for reciprocity noil trade sliciiM be entered Into between the two cctinttlts. There Is no purpfwe lo nape rommcicMl war on t lie Uomin Ion ol Canid't with it view to force an nexation. Such a thought, I suppose, never intend the mind of a meni'mr of Cotiprets. If there Is any feeling here for annexation It grows out of the be lief that annexation would be lielter fur the people of both countries, and not from n with to annex or compter or per suade the people of Canada to become it patt or the United Slates. I Intend at the flint opportune moment to olTer a resolution for rcclnioclty and test the scnte of the tienate. Mr. Smith said that Mr. Shermin's slattnifiilH were corroborated by all that he could learn from other quarters. "Sir John MacDonald very truly said Ihat It was the demeanor of the llrltUli Toilcs at the time of the civil war that cost us the reciprocity treaty. Whea Canada elects her own Governor Gen eral the (liberies question will lie eailly Killed. The hour in which tbe Ma IClnlcy bill patses Is n dark one for the filtiula ot reciprocity, but this may prove tho darkness which precedes tbe dawn. When the mechanic once sees the Xt eat fact that protection does not laUe wages, but, on the contrary, lowers litem, this system will fail. It tbe peo ple of the United States should ever declare for free trade Canadian protec tion tutiit fall. A NKW 1'AHTV. ISIHAXA 1UTWOT WHO CAM. THKM khl.NESTHK "l'KOl-LK'S I'AKTY." IxitiAXAFOMi, lxi..
