The^memorials, In large bundles, were covered^with red cloth, ana their presentation was^witnesaed by a deputation of ladle! In the^gallery. The senate then resumed coy aid^eration of the tariff bill. Vest'sBjotion to put salt on the free list^was voted down by a strict party vote.^The amendment heretofore nth-red by Alli^^son making Die duty on eross-out saws H,^in and i;^ ci nte oer linear foal u^lead ot M^and IB wasagieed to. The amendment^heretofore offered by Allison, increaeing^the duty on taggers Iron was somewhat^modified by Jones, Arkansas, who SMved^to put thst article on the tree list Allium^^oiid the eoiMiiittee had decided to allow^the present rate of duty on tm plate to^stand until Jan. 1, Iv.m, and tliat would al^^low time (or the establishment of a suftici^ent plant in this country to produce all (he^tin plate needed. Morgan advocsted Jones'^motion to put tin plate on the free 1 let,^anil said there was no tin in this country.^Teller contradicted the assertion, and stud^there was a vaat quantity ntttfj in t^Vt^Dead wood region. Morgan then proceeded^to deliver a written speech against the sen^^ate substitute. In the course ot a disc no^^tion Ix-tween Morgan and Ilawley as to^the relative value mi lands tn uiaiiufae^turlng and non uinnutacturiiig stati-s,^Morgan charatMrri/fd the young negroea^ol Alatiaina m m ^ most Oss foraaken p^*o^pie nu respect ofltiduitry) to be found^any where outside of Algiers or MoriNro,^or the tfreat desert of Sahara. It coat^fully $1,000 to raise a negro hoy fiom birth^toinanh^HNl, not to Include his ^teallngs^and other depreciations. If he could by a^decree of law or ol providence expel from^Alabama every negro In tt aud have a^barrier erected so that he could never re^^turn, lands in Alabama would run up to^prices greater than those in Wtscjrwdu. Thepeople would rush there with esgernes!than they were now showing In^trying to get Into Oklahoma. Acolloquy ensued between liiair tnd^Morgan, in, the course of which Morvan^said he ^wished the senator from Men^Hampshire had In his own state the 101*000^negroes that we can furnish to htm from^Alabama. 1 would be very glad, indeed,^to give them to him. 1 wish that among^the many societies he gets up he would get^up one tor the Introduction of negro* h from^Alabama into New Hampshire and 1 wilt^do my best to promote his society and get^snhj-eribers for it, and get the negroes to^emigrate. Blair I think It would b^ quite as in iota^brtk; hMMOJ T^ SM I^ WMfW thereas t ^ encourage the white people of^that state. MorganThe senator may spare himaclf^all hid Invective against the people of Ala^^bama. iilairI will he very glad to limit my^general reflection on IBS white people ot^Alabama ami BSSJSSM it to the senator with^whom 1 am engaged in colloquy. MorganIf any provident! I thing ihould^BSjBfj the senator and me apart 1 would l^e^thaukful lie add*|n^thlng to my hapni^ness and I think a more IntlBMtS aasocia^tion with him would linprovu me Detther^in temper or Information, nor in any other^way. After this little digression Morgan^resumed and finished the reading of his^speech Chandlerspoke In favor of Increasing^the duty on skates. In the course or his^speech and criticizing the opposition of the^m Btocratic part) to protectionist ideas, he^said: ^The confederate brigadiers were^now trying to carry out the principle they^had incorporated into the confederate con^^stitution and meant the destruction of all^tin- northern industries thst were orob cted^by the tariff system. They had nothing^left to kick, kill or destroy but the protec^^tive tariff. That was the business in whieh^they and the president hnd (mm-h engaged^for the last year, and notwithstanding tin y^ha i no luck, they still continued to make^faces and kick. Vestargued against the amendment to^imTease Die rates on 'in plate, saying^there was not a single pound of it manu^^factured in the I 'uited States and^there was no Instance in the tariff legMa-^tion of the country where a duty was Im^^posed for the purpose of creating an indus^try which did not exist. Aldrich admitted^there was not a pound of tin plate manu^^factured in the I'nlted states jd Meat nt,^but Mid that fact was owing solely to^the Inadequacy of tho duty. He held it^was aa much within the scope of a protect^ive system to create new industries as to^maintain existing ones. There was further^discussion on the subject, but no vote was^reached; and after un agreement mat from^Friday till Thursday next the daily hour of^meeting should be U o'clock, the senate^adjourio d. thkhol'hk. Alterroutine business the bouse re^^sumed consideration of the territorial hill!^and was addressed bv Joseph, of New^Mexico, who presented the claims of that^territory for admission. HeeuloK)/^d Die^character of the people of New Mexico,^denied the current belief that they were^Ignorant and not deslrou! of becoming edu^cated and refuted the declaration! that^they had no regard for law and order. In^population, natural resources aud proa^perts for the future, New Mexico waseu-^tltled to take her idace In the galaxy of^states. Slriible (lowat opposed the ad^iui^sh^n of New Mexico, saying a large^proportion of the Inhabitants of the terri^^tory were unable to speak or understand^the Kngllsb language. No blame^ahould attach to them for that, but he con^tended that until these people came opto^the line of language and American civili^^zation they were not entitled to statehood^Voorhees, Washington territory, voiced^tbe demands of the people ot thai territory^for admission into the I'olon. At Uie re^^cent election the ., ication of admission nad^been ihe burning issue, aud so keenly had^the people resented the delay ot this house^in responding to their continual apitesls^for sUtehiMei that pronounced republican^majorities had been the result Manaur,^Miaeourt, advocated the admission ot New^Mexico, asserting her people were fully ca^^pable of self government. Hermann, Ore ,^favored the sp edy a imission of those u r^ritoiies which M reason ot their popula^^tion and natural reaourcea were entitled to^statehood Dubois.

Whitney. Jan.12 Uie secretary addressed a com^muiitcatlon to Couut Arco, the German^minister, in reply to a statement giving the^^ermaii version of the Samoau difficulty.^The statement of Count Arco Is sub^staid mil j as follows: The German^forces landed at Samoa after the German^commander find given notice of his Inten^^tion to the commanders of the American^and British men-of-war, the reason for Honswere In danger. Upon landing the^Germans were attacked ny the Samoans^under the command of Klein, an American^ettUen, and lost fifty killed and wounded.^A stai^ of war was therefore announced^by Germany and as an American is alleged^to have been lu command of the attacking^Samosn forces, Count Aico ts Instructed^to make complaint to the I ntted States.^The treaty righta of the United States and^all t he r glits of the treaty powers shall he^respected under all circumstances. The^German government asks them to join in^an active way to restore calm and quiet^^ln response Secretary Bayard says he at^once communicated to Count Arco, on be^^coming aware of the allegations that the^Samoan forces wi re led by an American^named Klein, that he hail no kuowh-dge^whatever nor reason to believe that Klein^was a citizen of the United Stales. ^I was^certain,^ continues the s^cretary'fl letter,^^that he is not and never has t^oen in any^way connected with the puldic seivtcc nor^acting under color or pretonse of Its au^^thority. Instructions have been given to^the officials of this government at Samoa^and never deviated from those BMBw BjJsB*^He, and which were well known to tier^many and Great Britain, to maintain neu^^trality In Samoan affairs and ^hm- their actionto good offices in the maintenance^of peace and order In that region and se^^curing protection for American citi/ens^and their interests.^ The secretary says^before he received the German Instructions^orders had been given by the president^looking to the protection of oltlieaw of the^( nited stales and their property; that It^was with entire readiness he accepted the^invltaLlon ot Germany that the United^States ^)oin In an active way to restore^calm and quiet In the Islands/' The sec^^retary further says: ^1 received also with^expressed satisfaction your assurance id^the intention of your Koverninent to main^tain careful respect of the treaty rights of^this govemmen' under all circumstances,^and this, as 1 stated to you, necessarily In^^cluded respect for the existence of Samoan^autonomy and Independence, which is the^hssls of the three treaties made with the^United States, Germany and Great Britain,^(tie first named being the first in date.^Protocol* of the conference on samoan^affairs held In this city in the summer of^1SM7, by representatives of the United^States, Germany and (treat Britain, will^disclose that although the conference did^not produce an agreement as to a complete^plan of government tor that community,^nevertheless mi certain points all three^governments coincided One of these^was a free election by the Samoans,^according to their own will and cms^torn, of a king. It would seem^most opportune if such an election^could now be held, and 1 feel assured that^It would do much towards ending the tur^^bulent and hitter discontent which led to^the sh'tcktng and tierce warfare among^these islanders and tinall^ Involved them^In a deeply regrettable conflict with the^tier man forces, sincerely deplored by the^United States. Hear Admiral Kliuoerly,^commanding our naval forces ln the Pa^^cific, has been ordered tit proceed In his^flag ship, the Trenton, to Apia. I have^great confidence In his wisdom and benev^^olent discretion, as well as in that of the^commanders of the other national vessels^which have been sent by their respective^governments to Samoau waters topromoie^a satisfactory arrangement; and I take it^for KranU-d the same spirit of comity and^perception of equal rights of all three^of the treaty powers which Induced your^government to Invite the active co-opera^^tion of the Unltrd States in restoring law^and order in Samoa, will cause instruc^^tions embodying the same prluclpios of^friendly justice snd considerate modera^^tion in framing a plan of settlement to be^sent to the German officers in command of^the em peri a I forces in that region. There^is no obscurity In the several treaties and^none whatever In the understanding pro^^posed by the United states and first arrived^at between the treaty powers In June,^1HM4, and since then from lime to time set^forth in their correspondence, June 17^last the views of this Kovernment were ful^^ly couveyed to the government of Germany^by my instructions of that date to our min^^ister at IWlin, aud have since that time^undergone no change and no Intimation of^dissent therefrom by the government of^^ ti-rmany since that time has been re^eeiveal Ina communication dated Apia, Dt*c. :i^last.

The com^mander says It is apparent to a thoughtful^and unprejudiced mind that the aspira^^tions of the Samoan people for a liberal^and progressive government are incompati^^ble with German Ideas of government^iu Samoa. After their numerous In ternalwars^ and revolutions the party^of liberal Ideas would be triumphant^were they not interfered with b^ outside^influences and by the preseuceof German^men-of war abreast of their fortifications,^as a daily reiterated menace and warning,^especially so on the eve of the battle of^Jau. 5.
