Then Mr. Bayard spoke for an hour, and linallv Mr. Kernan used un all the time remaining except 1". minutes until 6o'clock, when it had hem agreed that the vote should be taken. The first argument of the Dem?? crata was that the Haves certilieate should be thrown out because it did not state that the electors had voted by ballot. After aa hour and I hilt ?peal on tins miserable pettifogging technicality, Gen. I,.iitn Id and Mr. Hoar read tin- statute oi 1792, which Bteocribee tha formol certificate and which does not require thai it should include ? state? ment that the voting was by ballot .\ttir tins the Daaaoerata shifted their ground, and declared that the election waa Invalid because, troopa were sent into the Male without the Legislature Bailing for these, aid were atatioajad mar the ?Milling plans. The Republican?, inter iopted this argument to read the constitutional pio.i.ion requiring the President to furnish troops on application of a (?overiior, and the clause in the Reconstruction act which empowers him to employ th.- army to keep the peace at the polls. The? laut argument fOfagted to by the Democrats concerned the failure to enact a registry law, the employ ment of ('tilted States marshals, ami the general lawless? ness prevailing in the Mate.

It prov that in cane the onto ol Preaideot beeoaaeo vai through the failure of the two houses to 10001 and declare the result of the election, or from other cause, the President of the Senate, or, if tl be none, the Speaker of the House, or, that Office is vacant, then the Secretary State, shall act as Preohlenl until a new dec shall take place. The peaoOgO of this import mea one occupied less than an hour, and was m possible only by a series of, to say the least, 1 doubtful rulings by the Speaker. In the Int a] the point of order was made, against it hy Mr. 1 ?Tintil of Illinois that 1'rortor Knott's commit from which Mr. Field reported it, had never I) authorised to report by hill; and even if it I. that the subject matter of the hill had DC been referred to it. ?pnokof Randall overruled t point, sayiogthat tbe committee undoubtedly I the right to report at any time, and it made especial difference whether it reported by hill otherwise. As to the question whether the Sllbj mai ter had been referred t .> the committee or not, decided thai this was one of those questions of hi constitutional privilege that it was in order at. I time, whether the rules of the House forbid or I and that it waa lor the House itself to deterni when si:,h an occasion arose. The next objection was based on I'ule 110. Wfa .provides that all bills shall have three sopar readings, and that 00 two readings of any m OOP! shall take place on the same day. Nobody was a to understand exactly how Mr. Hunda!) got overt rule. The first ami second readings were ordered a vote of the House, and when the third readi was proposed the point of order which was made Mr. Wilson of Iowa w;w coolly ignored. Mr. Fie at tbe earnest solicitation of BOUM of tic Regt lieatis,condescended to allow ir> minntee* debate each side, which was afterward extended ."? or minut?e. Ko very striking points were made in t brief discussion that followed, and the bill w agreed to by a srn.-ill majority. The Speaker's haste to force the bill thron the intermediate parliamentary stages to tinal vote lends color to the theory of certl Sepublicaoa thai tins bill in some mysterious way to afford O pretext in the Senate for the defeat the Presidential count, aad the election io the Pre dency of" tbe Senate of some one whom t Dem?crata, uniting with a few Bepnblicai are willing to support. Mr. Meal of Ohi a Democrat, iu his speech in opp sit ion to the bill, admitted that sin theories were entertained by the Derooeral for be warned his colleagues that again they we being deluded by a snare similar to that in Wbh tiny were t aught by the passage of the Fleeter bill, and that tin person to he chosen President i the Senate would not be the Senator of their choie hut would be Oliver i'.

Some of tbe Democrats belonging to the revoli tioiiary etique still predict that Mr. Haves will tu be Inaugurated. They undoubtedly base tins boa on some action which they expect the Se?ale t lake. Some of th" more enthusiastic of them at asserting to-night that as many as thirteeo li? publican Senators have been fourni who wi! mut?? with the Dem?crata in the eelectio of a Republican President of the Senate sud common rumor says that Mr. Conkliug is to b tbe man. Among these thirteen are na.ned all th Sont hein Republican Senators, including live who* lei ii.s expire on the 1th of March. Two of thca thirteen bave indignantly denied to-day thai the bare entertained any such conspiracy, and they in liiii.it.- that it would not he safe for am person even to suggest it to them. Then may have been :i time when a few of tin Southern Republican Senators might have beat induced to enter into sin h an arrangement, but now tiiat the inauguration ot Got. Daves 008030 posi lively assured, they would have everything to lost and uothiog to gam by such a course. So far at rumor connecta tho name of Senator Cockling with this movement, hut friends deny again to-day, with "ie.it emphasis, that the story is anything except a slander. There is no danger, bowVrer, that Mr. Field's hill will ever poos the Senate. The Democrats who are managiog thai revolutionary proceeding desired to have tins bill retened to the Committee on the Ju? diciary, oi which Mr. Conkling, during Mr. Fd muuil-'- service on the Electoral Commission, is acting chairman. For oome unexplained reason they have eoofidently believed that that committee would make a favorable report on the measure, and that thus fortified it might be adopted by the Senate. The Republicano were not to be caught napping, however. As s?sui as the hill was received in the Senate it was sent without dis? cussion to the Committee OB Privileges and Flections, of which Mr. Logon is acting chairman during Mr. Morton's service on the Electoral Commission, if there was any doubt aa to ita fate ?n the Judiciary Committee- there certainly M none as to what will become of 11 in the Committee on Privileges ami Elections.
