Plenty of Business for the Session., Important' Bills on Hand. An Extra Session Predicted by Some. Encouragement of Chinese Commerce. No Discriminating Duties Against Imports. THE NATIONAL CAPITAL. The Next Congress Members Arriving SlowlyProspects of a Light Session Bat Heaps of Business on Hand Some Important Legislation Pending. Washington, Nov. 29. Speaker Eandall has arrived here and was busy in his room on the House side of the Capitol to-day. There have been so far comparatively few arrivals of members, bat they are expected to come in rapidly within the next few days. As soon as Senators .and Representatives ar rive they report the fact to the postmasters of the Senate and House respectively, in or der that they may promptly receive their mails, and . up to tins' time not more than thirty arrivals all told have been reported. The Capitol has been prepared for the recep tion of Congress, and nearly all the clerks and officers of both houses have returned and resumed their duties. Speaker Randall says he expects there will be a moderately exciting session, whatever that may mean. Opinions differ among the officers of Congress and the members now here with reference to the business to be transacted, but the preponderating senti ment is that very little will be done other than the passage of the appropriation bills and the enactment of absolutely necessary legislation. That neither house will be at a loss for something to do is shown by the con dition of the calendars of both houses, which will be laid before them on Monday next. There are already pending in the Committee of the Whole House coming over from last session over two hundred bills, all of which involve to a greater or less extent the expenditure of money or donation of public property. Among the most important meas ures is a bill to provide for the payment of the public debt, and what is knowb as the funding bill. There is a necessity for the passage of a funding bill of some sort, trat it is believed in some circles that the Republi cans will endeavor to prevent its passage at this session in order lhat they may claim the credit of doing so when they come into pow er in the House. There are some who be lieve there will be an. extra session of the Forty-seventh Congress, and in that event the Republican majority will want to origi nate all important legislation, including fund ing bills and revenue bills. Among the more important bills pending in the Committee of the Whole are bills to regulate duties on hoop, band and scrap iron, to reg ulate customs duties on sugar and certain other articles named therein, all of which were reported last session and will be about the only tariff bills to be considered. The other bills pending are the following : To reg ulate the importation of raw materials to be manufactured in the United States and used in the construction and repair of vessels ; for the recoinage of the half dollar ; to authorize a new metric gold coin for international use to be known as the "stella" ; a number of other bills in relation to the coinage of gold and silver ; a bill to pension the soldiers of the Mexican war and a number of other bills re lating to pensions ; a bill to encourage inter state immigration ; a ' Dill lor tne relief of owners and purchasers of lands sold for di rect taxes in the insurrectionary States ; a bill to provide for experiments witn movable torpedoes ; a bill in relation to the Chinese indemnity fund and a large number of bills for the erection of public buildings in dif ferent parts of the country. The House cal endar, as it is called, is made up of bills which do not involve appropriations of money, lands or other public property and contains 150 bills. The nrst is a Dill to prom bit fede ral officers and contractors from making con tributions for political purposes. It has been on the calendar since June 12, 1879. It was always opposed so vigorously that it never could be brought up for consideration. To attempt to pass it at the coming session would be a waste of time. Among other important bills on the calendar are the inter-State commerce bill, the bill for the relief of Fitz John Porter, the bill to re strict the emigration of Chinese to the United States, tne Dill to autnorize national bams 8 t make loans on real estate, tne Dill to trans: the Indian office to the War department, etc. The private calendar contains nearly 1,000 bills, mostly for pensions. There are on the Speaker's table nineteen House bills with amendments of the Senate and ninety-one original Senate bills on their first and second reading. The most important of these is the bill to provide for the appointment of a com mission to investigate the question of the tariff. The Senate calendar contains twenty eight resolutions and 225 bills, among them the following : To prohibit military inter ference at elections ; to extend the jurisdic tion of the United States Supreme Court ; to establish an educational fund and apply the proceeds of the sale of public lands to the ed ucation of the people ; providing for a com mission to consider and report what legisla tion is needed for the better regulation of commerce among the States : to extend the time for the completion of the Texas Pacific and Northern Pacific railroads ; to provide for the enforcement of the eight-hour law, etc. It will be thus observed that tne members of both houses can jump right into business if they desire to do so and need not wait the preparation of business by committees as usual. It is doubtful wnetner tne calendars were ever larger than at present and not one tenth of the bills on them will become laws. One week from to-day the Forty-sixth Con gress convenes for its third and final session. From now on Senators and members of the lower house will arrive daily. Each train will bring to' the city the returning Congress men and scores Of visiting strangers. The streets already show signs of the large influx of visitors who are attracted here when Con gress is at work. The hotel men say the out look for tne winter is most auspicious, and for the inaugural season the hotels will not De able to xuraisn tne necessary accommoda tions to meet the demand. The House Com! mittee on Appropriations it is expected will have a quorum in the city to-morrow. Prof. Monroe, who with Congressman Sin gleton will have charge of the consular and diplomatic appropriation bill, are in the city and will proceed at once to complete the bill. Ex-Senator Spracue of Rhode Island, ac companied by his son Willie, arrived in the city yesterday. To-day the ex-Senator left for tne Jttast on tne limited express, x ester- day he called on General Garfield, it is said to present a New England man for a Cabinet position. Whom he recommended for the place is not disclosed. One of tne pleasantest receptions given to General and Mrs. Garfield during the past week was a breakfast on Saturday morning at the residence of Hon. and Mrs. L. P. Mor ton. The other guests were General and Mrs. Sherman, Secretary and Mrs. Evarts, Admiral Porter, Chief Justice Carter, Com modore and Mrs. Temple, General and Mrs. Beale, Representative Amos Townsend and Major Swaine, private secretary of the Presi dent-elect. General and Mrs. Garfield left the city this morning at 10 o'clock on a special, going by way of Pittsburg. The President-elect was accompanied by Congress man Townsend, Richard Smith of the Cin cinnati Gazette, H. G. Urner, president of the Cincinnati Chamber of Commerce, and Major Swaine. The President-elect will not again visit this city till he comes ts be inaugurated. Removal o (Discriminating Duties. Washtsotow, Not. 29. The following was issued to-day by the President of the United States of America : A PKOCXAMATTOlT. Whereas, satisfactorv evidence has been given me by the government of his majesty the Emperor of China that no discriminating duties of tonnage or imposts are imposed or levied in the ports or that nation upon vessels belonging wholly to citizens of the Uniton States or upon the products, manufactures or merchandise Imported in the same, therefore, I, Rutherford B.

A telegram from Berlin informs the State department that the cases of the naturalized citizens who have been arrested in Alsace and Lorraine on charges of owing military service have been decided in accordance with the claims of this government. The release of Weil has been already reported, and it is now announced that in his case as well as in the previous one or vreners ail oa uuu peiuubies lmpiraeu by the German government have been remit ted. Coming Changes in the Army. Washtnoton, Nov. 29. There are all the surface indications of a number of retirements of army officers at an early day. These re tirements have been talked of for two years -past and been considered from time to time. It now looks as if a number of changes will take place soon after Congress assem bles. There are a number of officers in the armv eligible for retire ment, and it is believed a clean sweep will be made. General McDowell, General Ord. Sureeon-General Barnes, Inspector-Gen eral Marcy and Quartermaster-General Meigs are those of the highest rank that can be re tired. There are a number of others lower down. It is mot known who are being con sidered for vacancies that will thus be made. General O. O. Howard has been ordered here. He is now a brigadier-general. He will be promoted to major-general by the re tirement of McDowell. General Hazen it spoken of as a probable successor to General Meiers. General Ingalls is now a candidate for Meig'sjplace. Chief Medical purveyor Col onel Baxter is tnougnt to nave a preicy gooa chance for Surgeon-Tenera! name's position. Oar Navy Condition of the Marine Corps -The Strength in Vessels. Washington, Nov. 29. In his annual re port just submitted to the Secretary of the Navy the commandant of the marine corps says: "The 30th of September last there were 1,390 enlisted men in. the corps, of whom 974 were on board on ships in commis sion and 916 at the" several shore stations. Much difficulty exists at the several naval stations in performing the duty required for the lack of men. It is of the utmost im portance to the interest of the whole service that Congress should appropriate for 2,000 privates as is allowed by the act of July, 18C1, and for this purpose agreeably to your order estimates have been submitted for that num ber. It is also of great importance that more lieutenants be appointed, and it is hoped the department will urge this matter upon the at tention of Congress. A recent inspection of ports at the different naval stations shows them to be in a very creditable condition and the officers and men well instructed in their duties. Legislation defining the manner of appointment in corps, and promotion and ap pointments in the staff, is much needed. Re cruiting is carried on at the recruiting offi ces in Philadelphia, New York, Boston and Mare Island, California ; but owing to the great prosperity now existing, work being plenty, there is some duhculty in enlisting men fast enough to keep pace with discharges, tc. In conclusion the commandant urges that the commandant of the corps be again restored to the grade of brigadier-general. Chief Easby of the navy bureau of con struction and repairs reports that the amount appropriated for the present year, lH7'J-80, was 861.500.000 : amount expended, S1.400,- 000. The report rehearses in detail the work performed at the several navy yards in the construction and repair of vessels, and gives the present number and class of vessels com prising our navy, as follows : In commis sion : Steamers, 29 : sailing ships, 4 : moni tors, 8 ; torpedo boats, 2 ; total, 43. In ordi nary: Steamers, 18; sailing vessels, 8 ; mon itors, 7. Receiving ships : steamers, a ; sail ing ships, 3 ; monitor, 1. Storeships : Steamer, 1 ; sailing ships, 3. On the stocks : Steamers, 5: sailing ship, 1; monitors, 4; ironclads, 3 : repairing steamers, 9. At the Naval Academy : Sailing ships, 3 : monitor, 1. Public Marine School ; Sailing ship, 1. Tugs of all kinds at yards and stations, 25. Total number of vessels, 139. In closing his report Chief Easby says : "A brief inspection of the foregoing list of vessels will show the necessity of an increase in the numoer or em cient vessels for the navy. The finishing of the five monitors and two cruising ships now under way and the improvement and repairs to the Dictator are of the first importance." NEW YOBK. A Case of Catalepsy A Rare and Pecullar Disease. New Yobk, Nov. 29. A woman named Kate Armstrong, forty-seven years old, a widow from Brooklyn, was given shelter in ' St. Barnabas Home in Mulberry street last evening. This morning she refused food and would not speak. She was in a trance and Police Surgeon Dorn found her suffering from well developed symptoms of catalepsy, a very rare disease, the curious feature of which is that the laws of gravitation as api plied to the limbs of the body appear during its continuance to be suspended as well voluntary action of the muscles. In what ever position an arm or leg is placed there it remains extended, bent or cramped as the -case may be, utterly regardless of the diffi culty with which the position might be main tained of a person in possession of his senses. The patient can neither speak nor take food and has been known t remain in this condition for a month or more. The special danger of the disease is that of starvation and food must De introduced into the stomach through tubes. In the case of Mrs. Armstrong all the symptoms were fully developed. Her eyes were open and her pinched features contracted in a scowl. She seemed to be entirely conscious, but sudden- ly deprived of all command over her senses. When set upon her feet she remained stand ing like a statue m the position in which she had Deen placed. Her eyes were hxed upon the person toward whom her head had been turned with an intense gaze that was utterly destitute of will but not of intelligence. She was removed to the St. Vincent Hospital. Her case will doubtless excite much interest in the medical profession. A Rough Passage Ocean Experience of the Exiled Socialists. New Yobk, Nov. 29. The steamer Silesia, of the Hamburg line, arrived at her pier this morning after a seventeen days' trip from Havre. Her log shows that she encountered very stormy weather and at times the ship was threatened with destruction. Terrific waves rolled up before her, through which she plunged with a deafening roar, throwing off volumes of water that swept her. It was extremely dangerous on the bridge, and the officers pursued their duties under circum stances that called for the constant display of daring and courage. . The worst day of the trip was the 23d, last Tuesday. The ship made only seventy-five miles. The wind came out of the north a ' perfect hurricane with tremendous seas. The ship seemed like a flea then, but behaved admirably. At times when the waves struck her the spray flew away np beyond the top yards. The cold was intense. This tempest continued all through the next day, but at times not quite so severe and the ship increased her mileage to 115 for the day. On the 27th the first fine weather was experienced. The Silesia brought over thirty socialists in the steerage. They presented a somewhat dilapidated appear ance, but were easily distinguished by a piece of bright red cloth which they wore in the buttonhole of their coats, and the women and children had one attached to their dress es. They were very reticent in their replies to questions, one of the party being on guard as it were to prevent any of them saying too much. One said they were only expelled from Hamburg, but knew it was useless go ing to any other port in Germany, and the present party decided to come to the United States. They expected to go into the interi or and work for a living, but at present had not decided on their destination. They will be given a public reception by the socialists when they are rested.

The war of the police upon the lottery and policy business continues. This morning three policy dealers were arraigned in the police court, bat were discharged as there was not sufficient evidence to commit them for trial.

Davis, John Dob- ler, George Guyon and William Pegram (col ored.; THE OLD WOULD. Great Britain. - Koss Beaten by the Australian. London, Nov. 29. The sculling match be tween Edward Trickett of Sydney and Wal lace Eoss of St. John, N. B., for 400, came off to-day on the THBSies champion course, from the aqueduct to the ship at Mortlake. Trickett won the race easily, beating Ross Dy iour lengths, Dut in consequence of a foul at Hammersmith the umpire declared that the men must row again. Ross had the Surrey station. The start was a good one. itoss immediately went a length or more ahead and maintained this lead to Hammer smith, when a foul occurred, Trickett's scull touching Ross boat. It was a good race af ter this to the top of Chiswick JSyot, where Trickett took the lead and at Barnes' bridge rowed right away from Ross, who was then beaten, Trickett finishing an easy winner by four lengths. Two to one was freely offered on Ross, but without takers. The attendance was very small. The time of the race dis tance four and a half miles was thirty min utes and twenty-three seconds. The tide was very poor, lrickett and Ross will row again at nair-past two o clock next Saturday after- lift ii lull and Larceck to Row. London, Nov. 29. After the race, while Trickett and Boss were making arrangements for another race on the Thames on Saturday next and were sitting in the cabin of the um pire's boat at Mortlake, other negotiations of far more interest were in progress in another part of the steamer. Laycock and Hanlan sat on the deck of the boat as she returned down the river and discussed the question of trial for the championship. Both men were evidently m earnest and anxious to come to time, although they talked over the matter coolly and dispassionately. Hanlan expressed his preference for the Tyne over the Thames. Laycock objected to a change, owing to the additional expense it would ne cessitate, and which he considered unneces sary. "All right," said the Canadian, in a most unconcerned manner, thrusting his hands in his pockets, ' 'I'll meet you on your own terms and row you on the Thames six weeks from to-day for ,'KX) a side, money down now, if you wish." "No, there is no need of that," replied Laycock, "the money will do all rignt ana win De forthcoming when we get ashore. " The two champions men shook lianas, ana tne Dystanaers, wno crowded around, listening intently to the conversation, threw up their hats and cheered lustily. The definite date and par ticulars of the match will be arranged to morrow. xetting was at once sianea on tne event, the only quotation being 20 to 10 on Hainan. France.

The Electoral Colleges and the Carneld Vote. Habtfobd, Nov. 29. A Washington spe cial yesterday to the Hartford Evening Pott says : "Governor Jewell is confident that the conspiracy of the Morey letter will be un earthed and the guilty ones brought to jus tice. He says the National committee does not intend to drop the matter. "Governor Jewell had a consultation with Chairman Hubbell and Secretary McPherson "bf the congressional committee to-day, and it was decided to telegraph at once to the elect ors oi tne nineteen states carried by KepuD- hcans, requesting them on Wednesday, at the meeting of their respective electoral col leges, to cast their votes for James A. Gar field and Chester A. Arthur, and not for James Abram Garfield or J. A. Garfield or C. A. Arthur. This course is advised so as to insure a regularity in the returns from every Mate sent to the Vice President, and so as to deprive the Democrats of any pretext for raising a question about the returns when iuo vuich are cuuaiea in r euru&xy. Josh Hart Suing for Damages. New Yobk, Nov. 29. It was rumored this afternoon that Josh Hart, publisher of Truth, had sworn out a warrant for the arrest of George Alfred Townsend, the well known newspaper correspondent who writes under the nom de plume of "Gath," on a charge of criminal and malicious libel. Mr. Hart said to a reporter this evening : "I caused a war rant to be issued several days ago for the ar rest of Townsend for malicious and willful libel, and would have secured his arrest had he not obtained an inkling of my intentions and fled New York on short notice. The bond in the case has been fixed at $10,000. To-morrow morning I shall commence a civil suit for damages in the Supreme Court against George Jones, editor of the Time, with dam ages fixed at i0,000. The Times has pub lished, at the instigation of George Jones, that I am a forger and I shall give him an ex cellent opportunity to substantiate his charges. I shall institute either four or five like cases against the New York Tribune at as early a day as the proper legal documents can be prepared. The above are only a few sam ples of the suits I shall begin." FIRE RECORD. A Disastrous BlazeHalf a Million Dol lars Lost. Richmond, Va., Nov. 29. A disastrous fire occurred last night at West Point, the terminus of the York River and Chesapeake railroad, and the shipping point of all the cotton freight transported over the combina tion of southern railroads known as the Pied mont Air Line. The fire is reported to have originated at 12 o'clock midnight in the hold of the steamship Shirley, which was loading with cotton. It was soon communicated to the extensive wharves, warehouses and ad jacent buildings. There was no fire depart ment and nothing could be done to check the flames and little to save property. The Shirley was consumed, also all the wharves, warehouses, 2, GOO bales of cotton and twenty-one railroad cars. The loss is estimated to be in the neighborhood of half a million dollars. The cotton and merchandise were insured for $197,500. In addition there are $ 20,000 on the sheds and wharves. MOVEMENTS OF STEAMERS. New York, Nov. 29.
