In tho House to-day, at tho conclusion of tho reading of tho journal, Jlr, Cannon of Illinois moved that tho House go Into Commlttco of tlioYVholo on tho Sundry Civil -Appropriation bill. Mr. (front of Vermont antagonized tho motion and culled attention to tho fact that this was the day to bo devoted to business pertaining to tlio District of Col umbia. Jlr. Anderson Tcmarked that tho bills (of tho class now brought in by tho Com mittee on tho District of Columbia) wcro uniformly defeated in tlio House. Jlr. Hemphill of South Carolina A gentleman who makes such n statement os that docs not know what he is talking about. Jlr. Anderson I do know what I am talking about. Jlr. Hemphill I thought you hoAsomo sense. -w '.Then both gentlemen advanced toward each other, and, having met, good naturedly shook hands, and Jlr. Anderson Jilnyfully tapped Jlr. Hemphill on tho ugtilnr. Tlio regular order was demanded by Jlr. Buchanan of Now Jersey, anddcsplto the protest of Jlr. Springer tho question wnsputand Jfr. Cannon's motion to go into Commtttco of tho Wholes on tho Sundry Civil Appropriation bill was ngrceu to, and Mr. Payson of Illinois took tho chair. Jlr.

Spinola gave notfeo that ho would bring tho mat ter beforo tho Houso at every oppor uinny. Jlr. Buchanan also garo notice that ho "would at the first opportunity ask tlio Houso to pass a bill appropriating $30,000 for a monument on the battlefield of Tren ton. Jfr. Spinola appealed to Jfr. Cannon to give n half day for tho consideration of tlio Monument bill. Jfr. Cannon offered to givo three weeks of tho next Congress for tho consideration of tiuch bills. Jlr.

Laughter, An amendment was adopted appropri ating $10,000 to complcto tho approached to tho public building at Winona, Minn. The consideration of tho bill having been completed tho committee proceeded to tho discussion of tho Legislative bill, DID NOT GET ITS DAY. The District was Untitled to It, Ilut tlio House Decided Otherwise. The District of Columbia was to havo Imd a day In tho Houso this, tho second Monday of tho month of February, but as upon so many previous occasions of the same kind, that right under tho rules was not vouchsafed tho District. It did not get its day. Tho House, on the con trary, resumed consideration of tho Sun dry Civil bill. Jlr. Grout made n very strong plea for the District. Jlr. Hemphill did likowlsc. Ho becomo involved in n controversy with Jlr. Anderson of Kansas, but no oro was spilled or heads broken. The Sundry Civil bill was taken, up all the same. Jlr. Cannon, chairman of tho Appro- Sriations Committee, tried to throw some ling llko a tub to tho District whale in asking unanimous consent that a day bo ret apart for tlio consideration of District business. Sir. Enloo objected, and thus tho thing was over. Somo members of tho District Commit tee hop that the Sundry Civil bill will be disposed of in time this afternoon to let tho District In for a small show. Bat that is not probable. In fact, the com mittee really has not muohhopo of get ting anything substantial during tho ro rotundcr of the session.

Dr, 1'urvls In Consultation With the Commissioners To-Dny, Dr. Purvis, surgoou-in-chlcf of tlio Frccdman's Hospital, had n confcrcnco with Commissioner Douglass this morn ing regarding tho location of tho Washing ton Baseball Club'sgrounds In tlio vicinity of tho hospital. Commissioner Douglass said no steps could bo taken pro or con. until tho application for permit to erect scats, stands, etc., had been mado by tho club. In n conversation with a Critic reporter Dr. Purvis stated: "I regret Indeed that tho gentlemen representing tho baseball people should havo selected so unfortuuato u site for tho location of their grounds. Unfortunate, because a baseball garao pro vokes moro or less applause, which cannot bo anything but annoying and Irritating to thu patients of tlio hospital, the south wall of which Is separated from tho park only by an Inch fence. I havo no per gonal feeling in the matter beyond tho caro and welfare of my patients, which number from 200 to 300 daily (white and colored). Tho cheers and yells of spec tators attending an exhibition of the manly sport is certainly not conduclvo to tho comfort of sick people. Tho attorneys for tho club mako a rather queer analysis of tho word nuisance. Hlackstono defines it as meaning 'anything that annoys; noise,' "It Is evident to any fair-minded citizen that noise is tho word par excellence to deflno an exhibition of the national game. I qnito ogreo with tho editorial in your paper of Saturday last, that hospitals aro more necessary than ball games, and for that reason should havo privileges that aro not at all unusual when thoy aro given to benefit suITcrltig humanity. I shall light to tho last extremity for my patients and think the majority of tho community will glvo mo their support and approval." HE WAS JEALOUS And Attempted to Mako n Sieve of Ills l4idy I.ovc. Henry Bryautis a colored man of vio lently jealous disposition. As a result of his failing ho will languish for six nlbnths In the District jail, unless somo one will give a bond for $1,000 guarantee ing that Henry will keep tho peace toward his former sweetheart, Mary JHllor. On Saturday night. Bryant purchased u revolver nnd started out with it on mur der bent. Ills girl had deserted him, and life without her was a barren ideality, so ho concluded to kill her. Going to her house, ho drow tho re volver and announced with melodramatic effect that ho intended' to mako a slevo of tho dusky Mary. Tho frightened woman ran Into the yard, closely pursued by Bryant, who fired one shot at her, but, cither owing to nervousness or some other causes, missed her. Thereupon tho olllcers .walked In, and tho bloodthirsty and jealous awain was locked up. In tho Pohco Court this morning Judge Jllllcr decided that Bryaut's temporary retirement to tho establishment on tlio ICastcrn llranch was made necessary by his action, and tho love-lorn Othello was given a sufficient sentence, to allow his ardor to cooh MUST ASSIST THE OFFICERS. A Duty Which Cltlem, Snys Jiulgo .Miller, Miut l'erform. A test case was brought up In tlio Police Court to-day to decide whether thoro is any District law requiring a citizen to assist an ofllcer of tho law. Olllcor Holmes had Georgo Locker before the court on the chargo of profanity, and also Grant Payno and James llrymit for having refused to assist him when tlio former resisted arrest. Lawyer Cahill argued that there was no law to Justify tho arrest of Payno and llryaut. Alter hearing a lengthy argument Judgo Miller took exception to an affirmative decision made by Judgo JIllIs last sum mer, and held that an olllccr had a specific right to summon a citizen to aid him in making an arrest. Payne and Locker wcro lined $5 each, but Bryant's lino was suspended, as it was shown that ho was physically uimblo to glvo assist ance CIuiukc of l'rograiumo ut Alhiiuuh's. Mr. Mansfield has received so many requests for mi evening performance of "Prince Karl" that ho has been prevailed upon to present that charming comedy on Friday evening in place of "Beau Brunimel," as previously announced.

Thursday evening "A Parisian Ho m.inco" will bo given, Friday evening "Prlneo Karl" and Saturday evening "Dr.Jekyll amlMrHydo." There will bono Wednesday matinee.

FORTUNATE FOR DUBOIS, PRECEDENTS WHICH APPLY TO HIS ELECTION TO THE SENATE. Scnntoilnl Elections In Florida Which Will Help Mr. Bnholsjn Maintaining the Validity of His Election. Tlio attempt of certain disgruntled ele ments In tho Idaho Legislature to undo tlio election of Mr. Dubois as Senator for the term beginning tho '1th of March next Is exciting somo interest. Fortunately for Jlr. Dubois thcro ore two precedents which exactly lit his case. Thoy aro tho contested casci of Hart vs. Gilbert from Florida In tho Forty-first Congress. Tho facts briefly aro that Florida had been without representation from 1801 tolSCS. Tho Legislature under reconstruction met on Monday. Juno 8, 1808, and on Juno 10, tho second Tuesday after lis organization, it began balloting for Senator, three vacancies to (ill, ono for thu term expiring March 3, 1809, one for the term expiring March 3, 1873, and ono for tho term running from 1800 to 1875. Tho Legislature balloted In separate Houses without result and adjourned to meet tho next day In joint session. On that day it elected a Senator for the term expiring March 3, 1800, and adjourned to mo next nay, wucn it, met ami eiccicu a Senator for tho term expiring Jlarch 3, 1873. an adjourned tlneillt. However, tho joint session assembled tho next day and eiccicu Annan uuucri lortno term begin ning Jlarch 4. 1800, and ending March 3, 1875. Tho samo Legislature In January, 1S70, elected Osslan I). Hart to represent tho Stato In tho Scnato fortho term beginning Jlarch 3, 1SG0, and ending March t, 1870. In tho mcantlmo Jlr. Gilbert had been sworn In. Mr. Hart camo hero and con tested tlio scat. Tho caso was referred to tho Committee on tho Judiciary, com posed of Senators Trumbull, Stewart, Edmunds, Colliding, Itlce, Carpenter and Thurman. Tho chief ground of contest was that Gilbert was nut elected In conformity with tho act of Congress regulating tho tlmo and manner of electing Senators. In re gard to this point tho report says: "Tho only ground for tho objection arises from tlio fact that tho Legislature failed to tako action tho second Tuesday after its organization in regard to tlio third Senator who was to bo elected, but It took action on tho subject of electing Senators and actually voted, though un successfully, on that day for persons to 1111 the two existing vacancies." Tlio report then declares that Jrr. Gil bert was elected by tho proper Legislature, "tho one chosen next prcccdlnglho term which would commence, on March 1, 1S00." Tho report continues: "There being three Senators to elect, It took action that day (tho second Tuesday) in rcfcrcnco only to two of them. Did Its failure to toko action on that day in refer ence to the third Senator render his elec tion invalid? Tho committee thinks not." After reciting tho facts as to tho ad journment tine die and the subsequent meeting tho next day, tho report of tho committee thus concludes: "In no view which tho commtttco can tako would tho petitioner bo entitled to a scat in tho Senate, for if tlio election of tho sitting member was irregular that of tho petitioner by tho samo Legislature at a subsequent session was equally so." Tho report of thocommltteo wasadoptcd after n brief debate, and Mr. Hart went back home. In tho Forty-second Congress a similar contest enmo up between Joseph J. Rey nolds and Jlorgan C. Hamilton of Texas nnd was decided In precisely tho samo way, tho caso of Hart vs. Gilbert being cited as a binding precedent. In'this caso there was no debate and tho voto was unanimous, IN ALEXANDRIA. A Umlgct of Happening and Doings In That City. Alkxakdiua, Feb. 0.
