IMPORTANT LEGISLATION TO THE FRONT. COMING A Coercive Policy for Ireland Gladstone's Cabinet Unanimous For Its Adoption. THE NATIONAL CAPITAL. National Hatters Fits John Porter's Case A Substitute Bill Adopted A Oem oeratic Quorum Wanted Boys in Blue feasting General Grant Resignation ot Justice Strong. Washington, Dei. 14. The Senate to-day temporarily disposed of the Fitz John Por ter case by passing a bill authorizing the President by and with consent and advice of the Senate, within eighteen months after the approval of the act and not later, to restore General Porter to the army and place him on the retired list with the rank of colonel. This substitute for General Randolph's'' amend ment to the original bill was presented by Mr. Dawes tinder an understanding with the Senator from New Jersey. By the passa of this bill the fight over Porter's case is post poned and transferred from the open to the secret sessions of the Senate. No one doubts but that a determined opposition to his con firmation will be made when his appointment is sent to the Senate. If Porter was to be given justice by Congress his friends thought it should be done at the present session if ever. General Porter's health is reported to be very feeble and his friends are greatly alarmed lest he should die. They believe that the bill passed by the Senate can be pushed through the House before the ad journment and in time for Mr. Hayes to act upon it. If the bill does .not pass this session it is not expected that General Garfield would consent to nominate Porter. It is doubtful if a Democratic quorum, so earnestly wished for by Mr. BicknelL will be fo"und in Washington before the 4th of March. The action of the Ways and Means and Appropriation committees this morning made it practically impossible to secure united action over the Morgan resolution. The mem bers of- the former committee were unani mously of opinion that the refunding bill was of the supremest importance and should not be delayed by a political controversy over a resolution which was of no immediate impor tance. The members of the Appropriation committee were all desirous to progress with their work undelayed, and they threatened to antagonize the Morgan resolution if its friends persisted in bringing it up to-morrow. Dread of an extra session was perhaps the most important factor in the surrender. President Haves received tne resigna tion of Judge Strong of his position on the Superior Court bench, as anticipated some days since in these dispatches, this morning. This afternoon the President went over to the Department of Justice and communicated the fact of having received Judge Strong's resignation. 'An interview of half an hour between the President and the Attorney General followed. It is understood oh eood authority that the President offered the va cancy to the Attorney General and that he accepted it. It is expected that the Committee on Wavs and Means at the meeting Friday will consid er the question of a holiday recess and report some resolution to the House. It is the usual practice of Congress to take a ten days recess for the holidays, that time being considered sufficient to enable most of the members to reach their homes wu passing the inter val of Christmas and New Year's at home And return to Washington. Christmas this year will be on Saturday. If Congress takes the usual recess it will adjourn from Thursday, the - 23d, ' until Monday, the 3d of January. Many of the members, particularly those from the South and West, are opposed to any holiday recess excepting an adjournment over Christmas and New Year's. Those members who reside at a long distance, and who would be unable to reach their homes in time to spend both holidays with friends, are espe cially opposed to a long recess. A majority of Republicans favor the customary recess, and their votes together with those of the Democrats who are accustomed to celebrate the two great days of the year will doubtless be sufficient to carry the long adjournment. The argument of the opponents of a long re cess is that the great amount of important work on hand demands the constant and un remitting attention of Congress until the 4th of March. At a reception given to General Grant at Masonic Temple to-night by the Boys in Ulue there were present an immense crowd consisting of Cabinet ministers, Senators, members of Congress and citizens of the District, including a large number of ladies. The appearance of General Grant on the platform was the signal for enthusiastic cheers which were repeated again and again. The General made a speech which was re ceived with much enthusiasm. FORTY-SIXTH CONGRESS. Washington. Dec. 14. Senate. On motion of Mr. Logan, a res olution was agreed to calling on the Secre tary of War for copies of the correspond ence between General Schofield and Major J. B. Carter on behalf of the board on the retirement of Fitz John Porter. Mr. Saulsbury gave notice that on Thurs day next he would call up the resolutions on the calendar relating to the Louisiana Sena torship. Mr. Hoar thought the resolution reported by the Committee on Privileges and Elections of last session naa Decome lnuperamo through the death of Mr. Spofford. The Senate had referred to that committee the credentials of another individual claiming to be entitled to the seat. This should be con sidered before the Senate could act properly on the resolutions already reported. He ex nressed some suxDrise that the chairman should call up the case without having called a meeting OI tne committee w cuubiuw mc credentials of the new claimant. Mr. Saulsbury said one of the resolutions reported was not in operation that relating to the rieht of the sitting member to his At the conclusion of the morning hour the Senate resumed the consideration of the bill for the relief of Fitz John Porter. , Mr Dftwes offered as a substitute for that portion of the bill relating to reinstatement that the President hf authorized by the advice of the Senate to appoint Fitz John Porter a colonel on the retired list oi ine army, retaining me clause asainst back pay and limiting the ap pointment to within a period of eighteen months within the passage of the act. Mr. Randolph said he had not he slight est doubt of the power of Congress to pass such a bill. He had offered the bill, but so an-xinus was he to have the bill passed and to secure as many votes for it as possible, that he would accept the amendment, rus oDject being to avoid controversies or constitutional questions like those of yesterday. ( Mr. Logan said the object of the. bill all through had been to dodge the verdict of the onnrt martial. If the friends of Fitz John .Porter wanted him restored to the army, let them ask tne resiaem to psxaou mm. n.e declared that Porter was not worthy of ap pointment in the army, and ought not to be appointed. The effect of the present amend ment was to put the man back in the army without a pardon, " which made it objection able to him. He had thought the bill dis posed of at the last session. He had reason to believe that had a vote been taken then there would not have . been twenty for it. Yesterday there seemed to be a disposition to a generous act If a generous act was to be done, let it be done toward some one worthy of it. This man was no more entitled to go on the retired list of the army or on the ac tive list than Jeff Davis. He had more re spect for a man that had done his duty on the other side than for a man who failed in his duty on either side. To put men in the army who had failed in their duty was to cast a slur on the whole army. If the Republican side began by restoring this man, where would it end? There were to-day 115 men who were dismissed in the same manner as Porter, If they began with this there would be a swarm coming to Congress, each as well en titled to restoration as this man. . If they wanted rest and quiet they should leave things settled during the war at rest. - The amendment proposed by Mr. Dawes was then adopted in committee and reported to the Senate and passed. - The vote on Mr. Randolph's substitute amended was yeas 37, nfl 91 . a - - . Fain were announced between Senators Anthony and Eaton, Blaine and Lamar, and Hampton and Plumb. Messrs. Bruce, Dawes, Hoar and Piatt were present, but did not vote. H ; : - . The preamble was then read. A vote was then taken and the preamble was agreed to by a vote of 36 to 23, a party vote, except that Mr. uavis, of Illinois, voted no. At 2: 45 the Senate went into executive ses sion. At 3:10 the doors were opened and the senate adjourned. . House Mr. Morton, of New York,- intro duced a bill to : incorporate the "Maritime Canal Company of Nicaragua," and it was re- f erred to the Committee on Commerce. It names as incorporators of the company : V. S. Grant, E. D. Morgan. H. J. Jewett, W. R. Garrison, Howard Patten, Fred. Billings. G. W. Riggs, Solon Humphries, Frederick But terfield, J. Thomas De France, E. F. Beale and William Dennison, and provides that the capital stock of said company snail consist of not less than 500,000 nor more than 1,000,000 snares of S100 each. The consideration of the joint rule in re lation to the electoral count was abandoned until January. ' In his speech on Monday Mr. imley, of Uhio, told his Democratic colleagues not to call the matter up unless they intended to fight it out. ' To-day when Mr. Kicknell called the matter np he de manded the previous question. Mr. Spring er, of Illinois, was entitled to the floor, but said he would waive his right to speak pro vided that the previous question could be sec onded. He inquired whether an amendment would be permitted requiring the concur rence of the House, and Senate to count the vote of any State. Mr. Bicknell said he was not authorized by - his . committee to . admit any amendment. . On the question of seconding the demand for the previous question, the Republicans with held their votes and Mr. Uonger made the point that there was no quorum. Tellers were then appointed and the Republicans again refrained from voting. A call of the House resulted in 231 members answering to their names. Mr. UlCKneil said it was use less to prolong this contest. The proceed ings on the other side had convinced him that a vigorous opposition was to be made. He would therefore not press the matter until January, when he hoped there would be 147 Democrats present to vote. .- " Mr. Conger said he would be gratihed if the course pursued by the Republicans would have the effeet of making the Democrats at tend and perform their duties. The Speaker said he would also be gratified if it would have that effect. The whole subject was then postponed till next January. v A. W. C .Nowlin, of Virginia, was elected postmaster of the House to fill the vacancy occasioned by the death of Captain James L. Stewart. " Mr. F. Wood gave notice that he intended to move to go into Committee of the Whole on the funding bill. Mr. Reagan antago nized this with the inter-State commerce bill. which he said was of the utmost importance. Mr. 'Wood insisted on a motion to go into Committee of . the Whole on the funding bill, and a test was made on the ques tion by a yea and nay vote and resulted in 130 yeas to sa nays. The Ureenbacfeers all voted against taking up the funding bill. The Democrats and Republicans were divided, Eastern men generally voting to take up the bill. The result was regarded as a test of a determination on the part of the House to pass some sort of funding bill. A majority of the Pennsylvania members voted against Mr. Wood's motion, not because they are op posed to the funding bill, but because they preferred the inter-state commerce bill- Judge Kelley offered the bill, of which he gave notice yesterday, as an amendment. Mr. Gillette offered a substitute which represented the greenback and which pro tested against any funding operations. Mr. Uuckner offered a bill which he intro duced on Wednesday last, and which author izes the Secretary of the Treasury to issue in lieu of the bonds authorized to be issued by the act of July 14, 1878, Treasury notes of the United States not to exceed $600,000,000 in denominations of not less than $10, bear ing interest at a rate not exceeding 4 per cen tum per annum. Not more than $GO,000,000 shall mature each year from the date of issue, said notes to be disposed of by the Secretary at not less than par, the proceeds to be applied to the payment of the and 6 per cent, bonds maturing in 1881, or the Secretary may exchange the Treasury notes for said bonds on such terms as he may deem most advantageous ; the expenses at tending the disposal of said notes not to ex ceed J of 1 per cent, of the notes so disposed of. Section 3 provides that the sum of $100, 000,000 of coin in the Treasury of the United States be set apart as a fund for the redemp tion of notes known as legal tender notes, and any surplus of coin over and above said sum and belonging to the United States remaining in the Treasury shall be used by the Secreta ry in the purchase or redemption on account of the sinking fund of any of said 6 per cent. bonds maturing in the year leol. Air. McMillan, of Tennessee, ottered an amendment requiring the taxation of bonds under the proposed act. Mr. Warner then addressed the Mouse in opposition to the bill and advocating payment of the debt instead of funding. Mr. Chittenden made a long argument to show that the obligation was to pay bonds in gold, and therefore opposing the theory of the silver advocates. At the close of his speech the committee rose. Two more appropriation bills, the consular and diplomatic and military . academy bills, were reported to-day. The military academy bill recommends $322,135.37. The estimates $396,442.53. The consular and diplo matic bill appropriates the same amount as last year, $1,142,835. The only new legisla tion is a change in the grade of certain con- sularships. After these bills had been report ed the House adjourned. THE OLIJ WORIiD. s Ireland A Coercive Policy for Ireland A Cattle Raiser Baycotted Donegal in a State ct Siege. London. Dec. 14. The Cabinet is still in session and the excitement in the clubs over its possible action is as great as yesterday. Rumors are plenty and the feeling 'that the Cabinet will be unanimous on the coercive policy gains strength. Dublin, Dec. 14. The Land Leaguers have stopped the export of Mr. Bence Jones' cattle from Cork to England and threatened the steamship company with a withdrawal of freights by all shippers whom they can in fluence if it continues carrying Jones' cattle after the warning the company have received. Jones is a well known cattle raiser whose farm is at Bundan near Cork. The Land League propose to hold a great national convention of League delegates 'when the government bill is promulgated. A farmer named Mulligan has been robbed and murdered near Granard. A portion of county Donegal has been pro claimed as in a state of disorder. NEW YORK. Sirs. Bergmann's Infatuation Still Searching for the If eantirul l onng Spaniard A Meeting Between the Pair. New Yoek, Deo. 14. Mrs. Swain, mother of Mrs. Bergmann, the Philadelphia runa way, arrived at police headquarters this morn ing and was forthwith admitted to President French's presence. A few minutes later Ma tron Webb was summoned and a protracted consultation ensued, at which the best means of compelling the wayward wife to return to the keeping of her friends was discussed. Mrs. swain, wno is old and an invalid, insisted that she must return or meas ures . of coercion must be resorted to. Her husband has taken steps to sue for a separation and ultimate divorce, and is about to return to Sweden, declaring -that he will have nothing more to do with his wife. When Mrs. Bergmann went to the Park Ave nue Hotel three weeks ago she promised to submit to the treatment of her medical ad visers and to an operation which would re store her to proper health and reason. She, however, refused positively to submit to the operation when the physicians proposed to penorm i. mm kkm wwo ciiuuuiujr t-iuui ever. At the same time her infatuation for the young Spaniard whose acquaintance she had made on the steamer France re vived and displayed itself in her actions. Full ' freedom 'was allowed her and she constantly' roamed about the 'streets and places of amusement searching for the Spaniard. Commissioner French at last determined , upon what he deemed an effective plan of ouring.her of her infatuation. On inquiry of the young Span iard, who is now a resident of this city, it was learned - that, his acquaintance with the lady has never gone further than a - mild flirtation on board the ship, and that he was not only desirous but anxious to haye nothing to do with her. An interview was arranged be tween them, the young man's guardian, an interpreter, Mr. French and Mrs. Webb be ing present. . She appeared Overjoyed at see ing him and was little abashed when the young man broke out in Spanish, which she speaks slightly, with "What the devil do you . want with anyhow?" The young man continued in this strain, and said he desired to have nothing to do with her. When he left Mrs. Bergmann said she believed the young man spoke as he did un der compulsion, and she could scarcely credit what he said as. the state of his feelings to wards her. In an interview to-day Mrs. Swayne gave her daughter, Mrs. Bergmann, to understand that she must change her conduct or she would resign her' guardian ship into the hands -of a trustee. Mrs. Swayne asked Mrs. Bergmann to goto Europe with her, but although not refusing, the young lady asked for a week's delay to make np her mind. At 9 o'clock to night Mrs. Bergmann came to police head quarters to visit Matron Webb. She looked tired and her skirts were bedraggled with mud, and it was supposed she had been gain searching for the Spaniard. THE STEW DOMINION. A Soothsayer's Predictions Verified The Stellartom Mines Again Ablaze. : Halifax, Dec. 14. The doom of the Al bion mines, at Stellarton, seems really fixed. The last two disasters there were predicted by an old soothsayer named Mrs. Coe, who named the very days upon which- they were to occur. Recently she again came into prominence by pretending to see further dis asters approaching for the Piotou coal mines. After the fearful accuracy of her former pre dictions, the least superstitious felt almost inclined to believe her, and so many men re fused to go into the pits at the Vale colliery that work was' seriously interfered with, and she was rated by the local papers as a worth less humbug and mischief maker. As no accident did occur, at many of the mines work was resumed, and faith in the sooth sayer was lost. She, however, continued her warning, saying' she foresaw disaster, but in which pit she could not say. For the last few days it was . hoped that all danger of further immediate disaster in the Albion mines was past, and a successful opening up of the large pit was looked for daily. But our doom to another calamity became ap parent when the news spread that the Cage pit was on nre this morning. This pit is con nected with the Foord pit, where the late ex plosion occurred, by a long tunnel np which the fire must have been burning before the Foord pit was flooded. About 7 o'clock Mr. Rutherford with some others descended the shaft to examine the condition of the pit. They had only reached the bottom when they discovered a heavy fire in their immediate vi cinity. They recognized their perilous posi tion and at once rapred for cages to ascend. Two heavy explosions followed instantly, the party barely escaping with their lives. Dense volumes of smoke now poured out of every opening. As soon as the situation was re alized orders were given to close up the shaft and the work was at once begun. It is im possible to predict the results. Everything now loOEs very bad and the nre may not be controlled for many davs to come, as the pit cannot be flooded. The bank of slack coal on the surface at the Foord pit is on fire, the result of spontaneous combustion it .is thought. This is all the coal now on the sur face fit for coking, and the loss of it would be serious. Efforts are being made to extin guish the fire, which it is hoped will be suc cessful. The outlook for the miners in the Albion mines is now indeed gloomv. as thev see the last hope of employment this winter gone. THE SOUTH. - Virginia. Slavery Days Returned Negroes Sold at Public Auction. Linchbubo, Dec. 14. Three male ne groes were sold at public auction at Liberty, Bedford county, yesterday, under an old va grant law, by order of a magistrate, absolute ownership ceasing at the expiration of three months. There was no excitement whatever over the strange sale and but few bidders. No one seemed inclined to be burdened with the care of the colored vagrants. They were hnally knocked down for a few dollars each, charity for their destitute condition being the principal motive of the bidders. NEW ENGLAND. Massachusetts. A Monster Whale Going West. Boston, Dec. 14. A right whale, the only one ever taken for exhibition purposes, was bought here to-day to be transported to Chi cago by Fred Englehardt, who came com missioned to do so by parties in the West. The animal is a superior specimen, weighing at least forty tons, and the preparing and transportation of this monster of the deep will bea great event." THE WEST. Kentucky. Money Blown to the Winds. Louisville, Dec. 14. A boiler in the candle factory of T. A. Abel's Sons in this city exploded to-day, tearing the building to pieces and killing Philip Hempil, a boiler maker. The upper story dropped to the ground and the girls who were packing Jean dies were saved with some bruises. The fireman had $2,000 in his vest pocket, which was blown away so far that nobody could find it. The loss by fire is $55,000, insured for $30,498, Connecticut companies interested being the Security of New Haven, Connecti cut of Hartford and Phoenix of Hartford. Illinois. Victims of Trichinosis Two Whole ham- ilies Prostrated. Chicago, Dec. 14. The members of the Italian family at 46 West Randolph street, made sick by eating raw ham containing trichinae, are still sick. Louise Palinghie, the mother, now a widow, her husband hav ing succumbed to the terrible disease, lies very near the point of death. Mary, eleven years of age, and Lina, six years of age, are in the same condition, wasting away and los ing strength every hour. Johnnie, eight years of age, is a little better and able to sit up. The doctor has hopes of the little .fel low's recovery, but cannot offer any encour agement regarding the others. The charac teristics of the sickness are loss of flesh, the form dwindling to a skeleton in a short time. pains through the muscles and abdomen, seeming to wear the very bone, extreme thirst accompanied by loss of sleep, and hour after hour passes in feverish restlessness. Above all the patient becomes so -weak that they cannot turn over. The appetite is good and when the. animaleulsa penetrate the heart or other vital parts death comes at once. Another revolting case of illness from eat ing raw ham infested with trichinae came to public notice in this city to-day. . H. C. Han sen, a contractor living at 635 North Ashland avenue, purchased a smoked and sugar cured ham, and on Sunday eveniner. Novem ber 28, he and his family, consisting of his wife and three children, ate a quantity of it hiniy sliced with bread. The parents ate from two to four ounces and the children a less quantity. Next day the parents felt pains in the stomach,, and on the fifth day were un able to leave their beds. They have gradual- grown worse and now have little hopes of recovery. The children as yet have not shown any dangerous symptoms. The piece 1 vi iuud ox wmcn mey ate was examined under microscope and in one ounce 15.000 trichinae were discovered. MOVEMENTS OF STEAMERS.

IiOCAX NEWS. What They Saw Through aWlndow. A Martyr to Fidelity and Devotion. In the southern part of Bolton, near the old shoddy mill, there has lived for six or eight years past an Englishman, aged about 60, by the name of Woolrich. Three or four years ago his wire leit him, running away with another man, and since that time Wool- rich has lived alone. The house is an ordi nary country house of the plainer sort, and contained a small amount of furniture, bed, stove, etc. Woolrich, who did not appear to be doing much for a living, kept five dogs some of them ugly and few people, for that reason, went near the house.. Last Thursday a notification was left with First Selectman White that an - investigation of the Woolrich premises should be made that jvooinch had not been seen for several days, and might need attention. Messrs. White and Sumner, two resolute men, went to the house. They were greeted by the furious onset of a large coach dog, who, on their opening the door just wide enough to look in, bounded forward with an ominous growl and a display of teeth that meant mischief. Unwilling to get bitten, the men shut the door and went to the window. Looking in, they saw Wool rich sitting in a chair by the stove, his head bent forward as if asleep. Unable to arouse him, and the dog continuing to exhibit the ugliest symptoms, it was resolved to kill him. Mr. White had brought his gun : but the dog Kept so near his master, as if guarding him, that it was not deemed safe to lire from the window ; and, raising this, the visitors hurled a stone, to start the dog forward. He dashed at them with a furious bound, when the gun was discharged, killing the faithful animal instantly. Going into the room, the visitors were un able to rouse Woolrich, and discovered that he was dead frozen as stiff and hard as an oak plank. Probably he had been dead several days, and had ' been frozen to death, for the weather had been very cold. He was not known as a drinking man. llis other dogs, starved out, hod left him. but this one faithful and formidable ani mal, seeing that his master was in trouble. had refnsed to desert him. and stood it out bravely by his side, in cold and hunger. For how long a time this had been could not be known but evidently for some days. The dog fell a martyr to his devotion and fidelity. It was found that the man's body was fro zen so stiff as to render it almost impossible to get it into a coffin. The burial was con ducted by the town officials. Hartford Timei What Was It 5 The New London Telegram of last evening relates the following strange story r A gentleman of this city whose veracity is unquestioned, and who is thoroughly skeptical on the subject of visitants from the spirit world, relates this strange experience which happened to him on the evening of Friday last. His home is on Ocean avenue, near the Great Neck road, and he had been spending the evening at a friend's residence in town. Shortly after ten o'clock he bade his host good night and mounted his horse, which stood tied in front of the house, for his home ward journey. As he neared the first open lot beyond Mr. Daniel Lee's place, the horse began to act strangely and evinced an unwil lingness to proceed. The night was clear and cold, and objects could be seen at a distance, standing out in relief against the bright moon light. Looking around to discover if possible the cause of the animal's uneasiness, the gentleman saw, standing in an angle of the wall a few rods ahead of him, what was ap parently the figure of a man. He urged the horse forward, ashamed of his own growing anxiety and resolved to pay no attention to the singular actions of the man unless he should make some hostile demonstration. As he passed the corner where the figure stood, it moved rapidly forward from the wall and took up a position beside the moving horse. No word was spoken, nor was any suspicious movement made on the port of the unknown. The rider said nothing and for a moment or two kept his horse at a walking gait, as though oblivious of the other's presence. The singular silence of his strange compan ion at last proved too much for his patience, and he urged his horse into a sharp trot. The figure still kept close beside him. Thor oughly alarmed he finally put spurs to his borse and galloped him for nearly a mile at the top of his speed. At one time he thought he had distanced his mysterious shadow, but turning to look in the other direction found him still at his side, though he had changed his position from the left to the right hand curve. "Just as the light from my kitchen window began to glimmer around the curve of the road," said the gentleman, "the spook, or whatever it was, shot rapidly ahead of my galloping horse and disappeared down the road towards Elliot's beach, leaving me to stumble into the house more dead than alive. So utterly bewildered was I with this strange apparition that it was over an hour before I remembered that I had left my horse outside without opening the stable door that he might find his way into his stall himself. I took a lantern and went out immediately to put the poor beast up and found him shiver ing in front of the barn, but whether Irom cold or fright of course I couldn't tell." The gentleman who relates this story is above re proach in every way, and were we to tell his name the most skeptical would be shaken in their incredulity. Cloaks and Cloakings.
