At the mcc i gof the house committee
on public landd to-day, Chairman Cobb
submitted v report declaring forfeited the
land gra»t to the Gulf and Ship Island.the
Tuscaloosa & Mobile, the Mobile &Ney
Orleans, the Elytoa & Beards Eiuil, the
Memphis & Charleston the Savannah
<fc Albany, the New Orleans Slate line and
the Iron Mountain <fc Arkansas Railroad
oompaniee, that have not complied with
the terms of ths grants by building the
road. The report was adopted and ordered
to be preaenced to tho house. Van Eaton
read a dissenting opinion in the speoiai
case of the Gulf Ship Island railroad. He
held that the condition of tha Southern
states, in the eeven years from 1871, were
such that no railroad enterprise could be
oarried on, and it was not an era of rail
road building, and 3ince tha lcpae of the
grant to the Btate of Mississippi, to which
the grant was made, had through conven
tions and legislature, applied frequently
for a renewal of the Krant by con
gress. Tbe land involved only
amounted to about 500,000 acres, but with
out that subsidy the road, which would be
one of great importanoa and utility, could
not be bailt. In that cast, therefore, there
should be no forfeiture. Van Eaton's paper
will be considered tho iniaor report
The question of forfeiture cf the Tom»
Pacific territorial land grant was then takon
mp. Roger A. Fryer, oa th» par* of the
Southern Pacific Railroad company, made
an argument against the forfeiture. Ht
contended that as a question of law, con
gress had no ri^ht to declare proposed
forfeiture, that being a judicial proceeding,
and it was agreed, S3 a question fact, that
it would be an act of injustice to do bo.
The original grant to tbe Texas Pacific
oompany did not contain a provision for
the right of forfeiture, but providud that
if the
within the time and manner prescribed by
the ac of congress, they would h&vo power
to adopt such means as they deem proper
to secure the building of a transcontinen
tal road from New Orleans, to S*n Diago.
The same act made a provision for the ex
tension of the line of the Southern Pacific
from San Francisco to the Colorado river.
The Texas Pacific company, after
constructing the line as far as
El Paso westward, ceased further construc
tion and the Southern Pacific when it
reaohed the Colorado riytr found a
gap of 800 miles between that point, and
El Paso, so, unless '
the money spent in extending the Southern
Pacific to the Colorado would hare been
thrown away and a dead loss. Then it
was that an assignment was mads by the
Texas Pacific to the Southern Pacific, and
the latter company went to" work and com
pleted the line of railroad by the Ist of
May, 1882. The object, therefore, which
congress had in view in making the land
grant in express, terms to the Texas
Pacific Railroad company and to it* suc
cessors and assigns, was thus attained, and
the conditions of the act fully plied
with. Pryor argued, that the Southern
Pacific company as the assign of th-j Tex
as Pacific fairly earned the lands, and wa3
entitled to them. It could certainly, b»
• argued that it would make no difference
to the government whether the great ob
i ject contemplated in the origi;»l grant
I was accomplished by the one company or
j the other, even if there had been no as-
I signment at all, and if it were the original i
' question, he argued that it was
iin consonance with the policy
of the government since- ' 1854, congre?n
should make thi* irrKnt. He did cot, how
over, put the claim of tb.3 Southern Pacific
company on any snob ground, but on the
legal right as an as3i^n, and of the faith
ful performance of tha work for which the
land was granted.

that. If I observe any person bringing
boquets into this court room I will have
them committed.'*' The boquet was allowed
to remain and the examination was con

Queenstown, Jan. —The 6teamer Cel
tic, in tow of the steamer Brittanic, cf the
same line, baa arrived- here. The Celtic
left New York on December 15, and har
ehaft broke two days thereafter. •
New Yoek, Jan. 14.—A cable di-patch at
tha office of" the White Star Steamship
company states that the Celtic was picked
up by the Brittanic outside the Fastnet,
and all wers> in good. health. The Celtic
suffered no other damage than a break in
the shaft, which will be repaired at Liver
Qr/EKNTOWN, Jan. 14. (Liter.)— The Cal
tic his proceeded ia tow of tne Brittanic
to Liverpool.
A few of the passengers and all th«
mail 3 was landed at Qaeenstown. The
passengers oontinsed their journey by the
mail trains. j
The stoamsr Brittanio hove in sight of
the Celtic on -it-day tha 12:h, ai G in
the morning. She was heartily ch6ered
by the passengers of the Celtic, which ves
sel sent a boat to the Brittanio v/ith the
chief steward to procure a supply of whis
ky and brandy, which had been short.
Th: boat took back to tho Celtic a light
line with which a hawser was drawn ou
board and the Brittanio at 8 began towing
to port the disabled steamer.
The Celtic landed two saloon and twoaty
seven steerage passengers at Qoeenstowa. A
steerage passenger, named tUalone, Bays all wont
well till Sunday evening, the day after 1 aving
Now York. 1 was playing euchr<» with f rionil3,
■ffhea suddenly we felt a slight shock, but not
enough to cause us to cease playing. Wo sooa
learned thai the main shaft was broken near the
ei.git.o room. The steamer was then about
thirty hours from New York. No panic occur
red, although some of the passengers were great
ly excited. We tossed ab jut for several days,
going in a southerly direction, although
efforts were made to turn the ship's head toward
Now York. J!inally, a fair wind blowing, it
was decided to pursue her course toward Er.g,
laudl In the first nine hours afterwards, the
ship made eighty-eight miles, at which all wen
highly pleased. The weather continued fine
until Cnridimas, on which day the steerage
passengers received unusually good fare, Tho
doctor conducted duine .-ervices for the
Protestants and a lady officiated for tho Catho
lics," and a concert was given on Christmas
night. Every night wo had some amusemeot.
Nothing noteworthy occurred until wo (-poke the
bteamer Argosy. A great clamor arose when it
became known that four of the passengers
could be taken aboard the Argosy. Lota
were drawn among the saloon passengers for four
berths and I assure you the lucky fellows were
envied much, as .£lO was offered for a berth,
but the offer was refused. During tho last two
weeks we got suited provisions, but no vegeta
bles. For four days befora wo met tho lint
tauic, liquor was unobtainable. 11. 8. Hamil
ton, a saloon passenger 6ays, he was in the
smoking room when the shaft broke and the
shock was pretty severe. The weather was fine
at the time, bat during the night the wind blew
hard and heavy and the sea broke over the saloon
deck, without however, doing damage. The
Celtic one day made 160 miles untie ianvas.
The Britannic towed the Celtic at ilio rate of ten
milos an hour.
As the Brittanic was leaving Qaeenstawn the
steel hawser, with which she waa towing the
Celtic, brake, bnt was immediately replaced aid
the steamer proceeded. R. B. Kirchoffor, an
other saloon passenger, says tho drawing of lota
for tho four berths in tka Argosy was somewhat
exciting. Four numbers, 1, '?., 8 and 4, iron
placed ib a hat with nixty-one blanks, there be
ing eixty-five saloon passengers aboard. \ The
gentleman whe offered forty pounds for the
privilege of a berth on the Argosy was an Amer
ican sculptor who had a pressing engagement
at Rome in connection with the execution of a
statue to President Garfield. I hare no com
plaint to make, i xcept pernaps tkat made by
the passengers generally, that a keener lookout
was not kept for passing stranger in order that
everything might be reported as going on well*
Some steamers were allowoi togj trioir course
without any intimation from us. T::o manner
in which tho s.oros weio manipulated so a* to
avoid the appearance of a lumuxl supply was
most praiseworthy, although there wore a*
chances of ehort rations as there w*rj iiOj
frozen carcasses abutud. Yielding, a steerage
passenger, says: There was no seasickness and
there was plenty of food, except potatoes. Many
of tho passengara wished tha voyago to last
throughout the winter. A deputation from trie
btoerago waited on the captain and asked him to
visit them some tijues. The captain replied that
he had something els* to do. He did not think
tho caso required it while all their wants were
attended to. All my follow passongors epo..s
very favorably of everything.

It ia e;isy enough to diatinguiah aLouLiviilo
man or woman after one hits lived th re a
short time. The Louisville woman is famous;
I must say I think her decidedly ahead of tho
Louisville man—young man, 1 mean. The
Lou:t>\ iilo v.'o::ia:i is beautiful aud she i.s alao
intelligent. Her world is not a huge ono,
but she gets the most possible out of it. She
is generally morij or less of a coquette, but
what beautiful woman is not? Her dainty
ringers are not soiled by handling clay to
make l>a<i jxjttery, and she makes no pretense
of devoting herself to an emasculated art, aa
the women of Cincinnati do. She reads a
good deal, thinks a little, is well bred and
rather independent, but not of trousers. No;
hh- cannot exist without men. Shj dresses
cxc • dingly well—in this weather in !*> witch

but the child died, and, when the ii":j:M>ors
called to condone with the afflicted mother,
the assured them that it was a great comfort
to her to know that she Lad done all that she
could for the dear departed child. She gave

she could think of, but nothing seemed to do
