?'?emUtot 1 ciry rui-wl that no busiii?-?? could irn

20 minutes afw 12, and then if
a notification that the House would

The Senat*? ent??red the hall of the Hoii?e precie
at 1 o'clock. The joint session W_BcaIled toOfi
and Pr?sident Kerry handed to the Secretary
the S.'iiate the report of the Commission, which ?

formal j?ap?'r giving the grounds of protest,
containing no new point?. No other protest he
offered the Senat?? withdrew, and when order t
restored in the Mouse, Mr. Lynde at one, mo?
a recess nntil 10 o'clock on M
Any. Mr. Hale wtB immediately on
feet with a point of order. He e.lain
that no recess could be taken under the law, 1
that the consideration of the protest must at "i
take place. Thin question was discussed for ?m
than an hour, the Republicans who sit-oke irenera
supporting Mr. Halt's jMisilion und the Democr
opposing it. At lenirth Mr. Hoar called attention
the language of the hill, and gave it a* his npini
that one recess was certainly in order. Bpeal
Kandall immediately overruled Mr. Male's point, a
a recess was theTl ordered by a strictly party vote.
After the Senators trot back to their chamber, t
objections were read. A few minutes of silence t
sued, nobtxly taking the lloor to occupy any par!
the two hours allowed by the law for debate. T
President was about to put the question on BOatB
ing the objections, when il was suggested that t
proper fotm WM to lote on sustaining the ileeisi
of the Commission. Then Mr. Stevenson unmask
a Bahama for delay, which other Democrats appeal
unwilling at litst to be openly responsible for. ' 1
moved ? recess until Mondai morning, on the Hi
pretense of wanting the report of the Coinmi'-si
printed; and when the motion, after some desiilfo
talk, got along to B Yea and Nay vote, all the Dan
cratic Senators supporttd it. Even Mr. l'.ayard we
on record as appearing to want to defeat the order
working of his own law. Of course all the Repab
cans voted In the negative. A number of ptopoi

Washington, Feb. 11.?(;,n. (iar?ield, in Ml pi I
speech opposing the pOMBge of the Compromise bill
used the following language! "From a carefii

toE the two houses and the Commiaaion to preven

and one paity funis iisell disappointed in the Jndf
ment of the Tribunal, and is so determined not to b,

Many Republicana bare aipmaeeil the fear thai tin
crisis ilmn predicted by (?'en. Garfield had airead)
arrived, and that the Dem?crata are diapOBcd t.
throw so many obotacieB in the ?ay as to prevent ai
aiinoiincement of the result of the election befort
the lth of March.
The D?mocratie leaders Indignantly disclaim any
such intention. They say that the adjournment Ol

Dem?crata aay their hist oficial knowledge of the
grounds on which this division was baaed waathc
communication signed hj the aigbl commissioners
read during tbe soasiouol yeaterday. That oommuni?
cation laid down some Tory important principles,
bo important that they an-of vital conaaqoence in
the consideration of further questions that Will be
Bubmitted to the Commiaaion. It was therefore not
only proper but neoeaaary that they should bare
sufficient time to consider tliosi* principles, ami to
arrange for theb intelligent discussion. For tbia
puipose, they Bay, Ihe provision Wits made in the
bill for a single adjournment when.ver any question
van raised between the twobooeeeof Congruas.
A third reason is that tbecounael whoaretomahe
arguments m support of the protest to be filed

Many rumors on this subject have BOOB afloat in
Washington ye?t? iday and to-day. Among thsOS

of this kind la his party friends ami support?'
WashingNiu, and if he did send such a couimni
tion it would lie disreganled. The Demoe
party, they assert, has committed its case to
Klcrtural Commission. They lielieve that the
?isiou thus far imule by the Commission is not
tain? .1 by the Constitution, the laws, justice, or i
mon aanaa. Hut no matter what it? ehuiactcr

reaily lanl down will be sustain?1?! by pop

case.
The Democratic, view of the recent deci-hm of
Commission may lui siiiiiiik-iI up in a few wo
That Tribunal, the leaders say. has refused t?
ecive any evidiiue whatever impeaching the autl
itjr of (iov. ,*-tearns's certificate. That eertili?
contains in itself no ovill?me that it is based on
report of any returning hoard or that any ret i
ing board hail anything whaN'Ver to do with <
vassing the. vi.le. That part of th?'derision in wl
reference is made to the rejxirt of a returning hi.
was put in, they say, in or? 1er 1?? save the case of (
gon. which is the only one in which any refer?'
whatever is made to boards of State canvasser*.
Use the words of a loading Democrat hunnvor??!
to-day : "The logic of this deoisioiij is that while
man ?an he deprived of his property M per.-.?
rights, under the laws of thi.? country, so long as
can trai-e his property or show that hi*, peno
rights have been invadid, the rights of the Sta

M. Evarta and other leading Republican doiiim?I ?
reported Unnlghl to boresaid that the Florida?t

ami that under the opinion given by the eight tui?
liers of the tribunal, which they hold to be 0

would be impossible to go behind the retni
of Louisiana even to inquire as to t
etigibilit v of an elector. The exact |K>sifion
Justice Bradley is reported on good authority to i
that no ?piestion can be raised :is to the eligibility

WASHiNtit.iN-, F.b. 11.-The Canadian Oov
ment seems airain to Is. couiplainin-Uiat I lie I'n
Sutes has not appoint.-d tin- Coimniaalonef pmv
for in the Treaty of Washington to ass. ?s the d
ages due by this country to that of the I'nmii
for Ihe use of its in-.?hore fisheries. Similar |
plaints ?iii* inatle a little more than a J
ago, but when the facts as shown by ofli
ligures were published nothing further
heard of the preposterous claim put f(
by the Canadian press that the I'nit.d St?
ought to pay $10,000,000 a year for tin- li?l
privileges it? citizens enjoy. The agitation at t
time bad for its obfeet the Inettesaent of the Uni
State* HeOBte to ratify the Reciprocity treaty, <'n
dina statesmen basing Intimated that if this*
done the claim for fishery ilaiiia.es would
drooped. Its looks as though its object was
same now. The truth is'thai Canada has uo j
claim against tiio United btetss under the Treaty
Washington. The privileges act ?mied our eit?sens
that agrsemsst have not materially increased
product of America IshahSi uor diniinishcd t
of lbs Dominion,
In the lyeal ?car ending June 110. 1871, before
treaty went Into operation, tin- product of Amera
lisheries, exclusive of the whale lishery, sold
111,482,410,and for the year ending .June 80, I?
its value was only if 11 VIT."?,-."?'-'. In no y
since tho treaty was negotiated, mil
it has been the last, have the Ann
can fisheries b-en M valuable as during lh'i
On tin other band, Ihe fishery boaim m began to i
prove in Canada immediately alter the treaty wi
mto force, in i?>7<? Canadian flsbermsn sold ih
eateb for only ?*???>,.-?77,:(!>?_', while In 1*74 it bronj
tin-in -f 1 1,681,886, The same conclusion is r?*a?*li
if wc compare tbe trade in fish between this count
an.l Canada before the treaty with that afterwai
in 1870 we imported from tin? Domini?n 01,10
4()7 worth of fish, and exported to t
provinces .*t';l7,7i!t worth. In 1875 we ii
ported 92,167,613 ami exported f'J?.l!
worth. In other woids, the Canadians are not on
Batching mete lish since the Treaty of Wasbingb
was negotiated than before, hut areseliin?? more
lbs UnitedStatea, while our laheruma bare bm
satelnng less and selling less in Canada. The s
plaii.itioi! it this is thai Canadian lahermen ne
haw* a ferae ? irki l (ef their li.sh iii the United Statt
while forineii-, our Government Imposed a duty i
foreign li-di. This ties UiniUet is v.ort'j twice i
much to Canada aa the In abete fisheries of Xet
foiiniliand are to ths United States, so that tl
United Btatss ought in eojdtj to pay nothing to tl
Dominion for its privileges, end it therefore maki

ai.-ed to overcnm? s Republican majority of ;'0,<XM) an?!
carry the Hlalc by a majority for their candidate* :iliin>?t
a? heavy. Th ne metlusls may lie classed under tune
he.el?., as follows:
First - --Intimidation. This was confined to a few counties
where the iukio vote wan the heaviest. The State liad
hUM n _ii>ri?ii_hly bulldozed In Js75 that it waa net
necessary to apply the antidote for Republicanism in a
Rouerai way. It was .hotiirlit best by the D? in
ocratio l"a?l::t*s, so it would appear, to select a half dozen
of the black counties and prevent the Kepubli? an* from
hotdtag Meettagi ta IbaaaMdatag anything ta nrln
their sliafti.reil etgaO?attoi. There waa, however, a
spielet of ell'tetivc liitiiiililalion practiced throiiKhout
the Slate by the. military organization?, composed cx
cliinlvt ly of IJeiiiociiif.s, which were formed in every
c?iiinty. Rifle chilis, cavalry agU-dmU-, ami aitillery
coiiiji.inii s aren m numerous a? if a war ha<i actually
broken out. The aegMM understood perfectly that this
show of anead HanewM tataudedMoanannMtotMMB.
Beeoad? Hndertag BepubUeaaa from nglaterteg and
votltiii. Tbla whs done in a variety oi iiiK?-ni.uis ways,
One was to demand that the colored voters abettM
BMWCt tin. ?lions not requited by the law as to the town
sinp, range? ?and aacttaa of land ?ay litad upan, and ta
refus, them legtetratMO ou their failure t<? make correct
npliea. Oa election day tha vldtaa wen allowed to voie
Int. and then tbe rating of tha Maekawaabtoderedoa
all sorts of pretexts, so ?as to leave a laiifo manlier wwt
liu? In lin?' ?hen the polla closed. In some localities
after tin? while vote-? were In, the Inspectors pretended to

the p..Us, WOttt to til.? county seat to have it ?rectified,
and ?lid not return until Beany sunset.
Third -Bettot-boi ?tut'linr. If the testimony Is to be
believed, then wen cover bucIi obolceale and ont
lai?eo'.is frauds on the ballot perpetrated In New-York
