' Susan ,B Anthony may appeal to women to insist upon having equal rights and privileges with men. Yet sheiuust not become impatient, or forget that "large bodies move slowly." It is buta few years since wives were little better than slaves, while to-day wealth and science vie with each other in doing woman's service and seeking to better lier condition. Many diseases that have hitherto cursed her existence are by the use of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription readily cured. Her property in most of tiie States is now secured to her against the debts of her husband.

Mr. lloutweii offered a loint resolu tion, providin sion, of the each calendar day shall be observed by each House as a day for legislative purposec. It was referred to the Committee on Rules. Mil Wright, from the Committee on Claims, ported adversely the bills to reopen and settle the claims of State for ad vances made in the War of 1812, and for relief of persons having claims against the Government under the Captured and Abandoned Property act. Both bills were indefinitely postponed. Thu Kads appropriation and Pacific Sinking Fund bills were discussed. A Conference Committee was ordered on the bill to supply a deficiency in ibe appropriation for public printing.The evidence taken by Mr. Sargent's Sub-committee in regard to the eligibilitv of Humphreys, one of the Florida Kleetors, was reported and ordered to be printed. The Indian Appropriation bill was taken up, and liio Senate theu took a recess until this morning. In ibe House, a bill was passed re* moving thu disabilities of Dabney M.

A recsss was then takgn until this morning. g that during the sc— Electoral Commission re The Civil Service. —We have very little faith in any plan of civil-service re form which proceeds by an inflexible rale of competitive examinations and the like. The treachery of the Administration abetted by tie leaders of both parties in Congress—has alternately Mattered and crushed every hone of that reform so far; and ils sincere friends may well be dis gusted, even if they are not wholly dis heartened. The prize, it seems, is too great to be relinquished without a further effort. The present time, when there is a lull in politicaHexcitemcnt, and tho best men of the two parties are co-operating to maite a happv issue ofthe Presidential trouble, is deemed favorable by it« advo cates for considering some practical plan to redeem the civil service. Theorists would ask for a great deal more than is offered in the bill presented by Mr. Rice of the House, and now before the Ways and Means Committee. This bill is far from embracing the whole civil service in its reformatory purpose: for it only ap plies to the grades of clerks and others whose salaries range between SfiO and $1.V.) a month. We do not see why the friends of this measure should not extend the operation of the system a long way above that, and make promotions into many higher classes of office dependent upon experience and proof of capacity and integrity shown in the lower ranges. But Congress will most reluctantly part with any of tiie power and patronage that now belong to members; and it will be a g reat concession for them to yeild up alf as much a« the Rice bill asks for. For any reform, even far less than that contemplated by this bill, the public, which suffers terribly from the incapaci ty and dishonesty of Federal officials, will he truly thankful.

The anxiety as to the decision of Hie preliminary points in tlio Florida case Was manifested tills morning in the de serted seats in either branch of Congress while the members gathered iu groups in the cloak rooms and rotundn discuss ing the probabilities and catching at every whisper from the Supreme Court Cliam ber, where the tribunal was in .session. It was not until 4 o'clock that this aux iety was relieved by the adjom niuent of the commission, after a removal of the injunction of secrecy which had been placed upon the members. Then anx iety rose to the pitch of excitement as various conflicting rumors flew through tiie Capitol. Republican versions of the decisions gained currency earliest, and the Democrats were led to believe that their whole case had gone by the board on the first Issue. It was given out that the commission would accept a Gover nor's certificate as decisive, and that in no event would any inquiry be made as to the facts upon which such certificate rests. Later and more correct reports were about as encouraging to one side as to the other, and all was then a sea of speculation. WHAT TIIE ACTION MEANS. It seems that the action ofthe commis sion was virtually what has been fore shadowed in these dispatches. The first resolution voted upon was offered by Senator Edmunds. This could not have received a majority vote, and it was there fore modified by Justice Miller to meet veu a majority vote, modified by Justice the views of Justice Bradley and then of fered in the following form: Ordered, that no evidence will be received by the commission which was notfc.ihinlt tod to the Joint eon ventlon of tho two hous es by the President of lUiegenato, ohous . ---, with the different certificates except such as relates totheeligiblllty of F.C. Humphreys, one of tho electors. The clause inserted to gain the vote of Justice Bradley was that providing for taking testimony as to the eligibility ol electors. With this amendment the reso lution was adopted, the vote being: Yeas—Justices Bradley, MBlcr and Strong; Senators Bdmnnds. Frcllnghuysen and Morton; Representatives Garfield and Hoar—S. Nays—Justices Clifford ami Field; Sena tors Bayard and Thurnmn; Representatives Abbott, Hunion and Payne—7. This is calied a division on the party line, and was hailed by Morton and Gar field as an evidence that it is to be a par ty fight, from first to last. JUSTICE BRADLEY VOTES WITH THE DEMOCRATS. Immediately, however, Representative Abbott offered the following: Order, That in the case of Florida this commission will receive the evidence re lating to the eligibility of F. C. Hum phreys, one of the pei-sons named in cer tificate No. 1, as au elector. As indicated bv his opposition to the original resolution of Sir. Edmunds, Jus tice Bradley took the Democratic view of this question, and the resolution was adopted, as follows: Yeas—Justices Bradley, Clifford and Field, Senators Bayard and Thurman, and Representatives Abbott, Hunton and Payne—S. Nays—Justices Miller and Strong; Senators Frelinghuysen, Edmunds and Morton, and Representative Gai-fleld and Hoar—7. This done, without further action other than the removal of tho injunction of secrecy, the commission adjourned until II o'clock tomorrow morning, with the Understanding that the argument in tiie Florida case on the papers presented be fore the joint convention will then begin in open session.
