The. Cabinet Nominations—llow
Senate Received Than—A Lively Dis
caution—Maine the First Objector —
Alt'the Nominations Tabled for De
ference — Unprecedented Action.
Washington, March 7.— The names
ofthe new cabinet were sent in to the
Senate about two o'clock this afternoon.
They are as follows:—Wm. M. Evarts, of
New York. Secretary of State; John
Sherman, of Ohio, Secretary of Treasury:
Geo. W. McCrary, of Iowa, Secretary of
War; Richard M. Thompson, of Indiana,
Secretary, of Navy; Charles Devens, of
Massachusetts, Attorney General; David
M. Key, of Tennessee. Poffmaster Gen
eral, and Carl Schurz, Missouri, Secre
tary of Interior. The cabinet was all
made up at ton o'clock this morning, and
the names would have been sent in im
mediately ou the assembling of the Sen
ate but for the fact that alter consultation
was determined to assign Mr. McCrary 1
to the War Department instead of the
Department of Justice, and assign Gen.
Devens to the latter department. The
nominations undoubtedly give a great
deal of dissatisfaction to a large element
of the republican party, Including such
Senators as Cameron, Blaine, Sargent and
others, and also many of the most active
workers of the party, such as Wm. E.
Chandler and men of that stamp. Exprès
Sions were heard to the effect that it
would have been just as well to have ,Til
den. It was said by some that in the
whole list there were but two republi
cans Sherman and Thompson.
When the Senate went into executive
session this afternoon it was proposed b;r
some Senators that the usual form should
be followed of congrming new cabinet
appointments without delay. To this the
democratic Senators made no objection,
but frbm the republican side there came
numerous objections, Air. Blaine leading
off with a strike at Evarts, ^wliose nomi
nation he moved to refer to the foreign
allairs committee, and the ugly spirit
which has displayed itself In the last two
days was much more marked now that
the eyes of the public were shut out.
Mr. C'otikling moved the reference of
Mr. Schurz's nomination to the finance
committee. A number of Senators de
manded the reference of Mr. Key's nom
ination. It was then insisted that the
nominations should all lie on the table
till the committees were formed, and that
they then should be referred. Mention
was made of the A. T. Stewart case, when
after the hasty confirmation it was found
that Mr. Stewart's appointment was not
lawful. One Senator called attention to
the nomination of Senator Sherman, and
asked that in his case at least the usage
be adheared to, as it was the invariable
custom for the Senate to confirm one of
its members when nominated by the
President tor any position unanimously
and without a moment's hesitation. It
was also thought that Mr. Schurz should
ceme withim this usage, as he had served
a full term in the Senate.

MR. KEY'S NOMINATION FOR POSTMASTER
GENERAL—AN OLIVE BRANCH
TO THE SOUTH.
Washington, March 7.— Well inform
ed friends of the Presidentassert that the
nomination of Senator Key, to the cabi
net was the initial step in the develop
ment of his policy of seeking to disarm
Southern distrust and to promote peace
in that section on the basis of justice and
protection to all. Mr. Key led a Confed
erate regiment during tbe late war, and
was the democratic Senator appointed to
fill Andrew Johnson's vacanev. But at
tbe late seesion of Congress he was the
first to make a speech from the démo
cratie side looking to Bouthern pacifica
tion through tbe conciliation or and co
operation with tbe incoming republicau
MR. KEY'S SENTIMENTS.
That he and the President would be
able to harmonize was made sufficiently
clear to tbe latter by the sentiments ot a
private letter addressed bv Mr. Key to a
lersonal friend on tbe lOtn of February
last In which he said: "I am ready to
do all I can to restore confidence and
good government to the people of the
South. This can only be done by a bear tv
fraternization of the sections, for which
I have labored. If, without requiring of
me the sacrifice ot any personal or poli
tical independence, you find that my
name can be used for tbe good of the
South in your best judgment, you are at
liberty to use it. Ir I were to become a
member of an administration I should
not feel at liberty to place myself iu op
position to its general policy but should
feel bound to build up and strengthen it
in the hearts of the people; anil if the
time arrived when I could not heartily
co-operate with it, I should resign. As
matters are in the South I could be more
useful to our people by an independent
position and if, as I hope and believe,
the administration will develop a broad
and liberal policy toward the people of
the South, 1 would not hesitate to incor
porate my iortunes and self with it."
This letter was laid before Mr. Hayes,
who found't entirely in accord wiili his
own sentiments and lienee the tonual
tender of an appointment to Mr. Key,
after an interview between these gentle
men last evening which established the
identity of their respective views on the
the dividing link.
