By Mr. Maxev-For the relief of ourtain ofi cers and privates of the Uuited htates army. Mr. Voor hees presented a resolution itstrunt. ing the Committee on Pensions to report a bill anuthorlzlo pensl, ns to surviving soldiers and Bsllors of the Mexican war. *Ir. McPberson. from the Committee on Naval t Affairs. reported favotably on the bill for the r, lief or the 4lbemarle and OhCsaveake Canal Company. Pi.ced on the calendar. The morning hour expired, and the Senate I resumed conAidration of the Qeneva award bill. Mr. Call, of Florida. addressed the Penate In opnositlon to the committee bill. He took a different view from the suppoiters of the bill as to the appllcabi'tty of the doctrine of subro gation. If, this "uase the underwriter. in taking the r lrk. exacted a suficiently large premium to cover the risk of total loss, and made no nl lowane for the possibility of a brea.ch of neu trality by a forg ign g verp'mnt, In an arbi tration and an award on damag a that p os elbility was too intangible and shadowy to enter into the contract, or to be pleaded afterward as giving the right of subrogation. He quoted ligal authorities to sustain this pr 'position. and also the asset Lion that the dernmnd for payment a' for total lose was not a final and absolut, abandonment of the lssured property, transfe ring th right of subrogtlon wltu it. The e oum-Otances of equity may exist, on whian the courts are to pass, and may reverse the 'e hnical abandon meat. In a cise who ae o por cIut premium was paid. coulty wool i not allow the under writ- r now to roe ,ver the oth'r (o per cent. thus being pall twice; that might be his a, e tract right in law. but. it was not an equitable tigwt. Mr. Thnrmsn ai ked to whom it would be un just. TL , orwners were satifiled and asked nothieg nr 'rt. Mr ull t;aHl he was nlit argulOg for any class of persons; ho, did not know who would be iu jired and who ienefit, d by his propositions. IIt uudltrstood the authorities to be against the idea that such ina tb'r. Intengibl" possibil ity of recovery constitute.. t the oeen recprandi. or was asslgnableas as aight of troupety. He denied that the award wa. :n any -ense subject to legal claims. Municipal law could not cover the distribution of a tlnd a v..rdod by ;oa gov ernment to another, even where ' he award was bated on claims of Individual cit us. There could be no right uf property in the disposition and willingness of Great Britain to make an award of d ,mages. He cited various optnions on this point. The question now is simply one of equity as to who sustained the greatest loss. He believed the loss .s by the exculpated com missioners, and by reason of exhanced pre miums, should be paid; that double payment to underwriters should not be made. On motion of Mr. Eaton. the pending bill was informally laid aside, and the consular and ,diplomatic appropriation bill was taken up. The amount appropriated is $1746 135. An amendment was agreed to appropriating $24,000 for the salaries and expenses of the recently appointed oommiusonaers to China. after other slight amendments the bill was psesed. The Senate then adiourned. Ilouse.-The morning hour was dispensed with, anid at 12:40 the H ,use wen. in'o commit tee of the whole (Mr. Whithorne. .f Tennessee. in the chair) on the Indian appropriation bill. After some remarks by Mr. Baker, of Indiana. the bill was read by sections for amendments. Six or eight were offered, but most of them were rej -cred. and none were of great Import ance. Every amendmnent however, served as an excuse for a .rneoh on the Indian question. so that much titn was consumed. Mr. Hooker. ot Mississelpi. gave notice that he intended to off-r an amendmenttransferring the Indian Bureau from the Interior to theWar s Department. The committee finally rose without acting on the bill. Mr. Hu'chlnson. of New York. introduced a r bill to establish a uniform system of bank 0 ruptoy. Referred. The House then took a recess until 7:30. the evening se-sion to be for the consideration of bills reported from the Committee on Naval Affairs. At 7:85 o'clock the House went intD commit tee of the whole on the state of the Union. and took up the bill providing for a permanent constructi.n fund for the navy. Mr. Whltthoroe, of Tennessee, chairman of the Naval Committee. explained the features of the bill, which, he said, came before the House as the unanimous report of that committee. It was intended to increase the efficiency of our navy. As anaval power, be said, the United States now ranks ninth or tenth, and could not meet at sea .ne of the great maritime nations of the world. Mr. Harris, of Massachusetts, a member of the Naval Committee. then spoke at length in regard to the provisions of the bill in connec tion with the existing state of our nav 1 f irce. Atter some debate and a few amendments the 1)ill was laid aside for favorable report to the House. The next bill on the calendar was the bill to anu horize and euoip the Howg~te Arctic expe dition. and it was also laid aside with a favora ble recommendation. The committee then roeo and reported the bills to the House. and the main Question hav ing been ordered on them'the House adjourned. CRIMES AND CASUALTIES. A Circus Man Murdered by a Gambler.

[New York Time.] Divorce has been sought ere now for nearly every conceivable cause or pretext in the Western States, especially in Indiana; but a entirely novel reason has been assigned late by Peter B. Lay, of Lafayette for a separation from his wife. Their dsharmod has its source in politico, he b tug arampat Democrat and she an ardent Republican of the proselytizing school. He had subscribed for the Democratic local newspaper, tihe Dispatch, but she was unwilling heshould read it, and even refused to allow the carrier to leave it at the house. Lay countermanded the order, and the sheet was put under the; front door only to be thrown by the wife iasto the fire. The carrier was than instructed to.t deposit it in the barn, but the alert Mrs. La:r captured it there, and promptly consigned it. to the fldmes. Other efforts were made to in troduce the Dispatch into the wood-pile, the chicken-coop, and the smoke-house, thougil they were all defeated by the vigllanceof the wife. Lay complained bitterlyof theinvat of his marital and political rights, and fl.l:' proposed a compromise, which was duly spurned. Driven to desperatjon, the husband, consulted a lawyer, who, being a Democrat declared the woman's conduct so heinous aSnj outrage as to Justify immediate divorce. Ai bill has been tiled, and the case will come to trial at once. A Girl's Encounter with a Burglar. In Philadelphia, early Monday morninr Miss Ella Duffy, aged 20 years. and living fn the family of Lloyd Wiegand, hearing a noise in the kitchen, stole quietly down stairs and , opened the kitchen door, when she was con fronted by a man wearing.a mask. With an oath the burglar turned upon her, raised a jimmy which he had in his hand, and strnit her on the head. The girl fell to the floot, and the blood gushed from her nose and ears. As she fell she caught sight of a saucepan oa the stove. It was full of boiling water, and as the burglar rushed at her again she jumped to her feet and dashed the contents of the pan into his face. With a yell and many curses he ran opt of the back door and cried to his accomplice, who was standing lan the yard: "Run! I'm scalded." It is believed the girl's scull is fractured.
