Tl:e MMTal tone of comment on the Cabinet leads
to ihe belief that the transfers made this niorr.iui:,
a? a whole, strengthen rather than otherwise the
L, w Admit?-trat i?.n. Judire Devetis may not tie n
better Inwyoi th.m Mr. Mct'rary. but he is a more
brilliant one, and in the BSanagcnient of cases before

i|,|trti|iri itt ciuiiinitu-es when appointed. Thiaeooxos
m a very nnnsnal ?me. It has heretofore been ens
teenry for the Senate to oonflrui the new Cabinet
?it'miii referenee t?> oonunitteea, .and usually on the
lay of its nomination ; and aaiiki frnm ibi? practice
as no recent oecasioo has it ever oeeuirsd that the
Sit?ate ha? refused or foiled to confina at ooeo the
ssaiination of one of its own member-, for an official
poMtio'i. This practice has been rd universal *,!?ai it
hu.- become ahnoal ad binding a? the rales of tie
l??ate, and it is observed simply as a
i.i.itt.r of aonrtosy to the Bonator so honored.
Tin* tln-oiy on wMeh this custom is baaed
Ixthut a'i> Iran who is Ittod Ut OOCnny a s? at in the

been associated, M also litted far any position to
which tbe President may appoint him, and that the
Senate duos not need the Investigation <>f a oommit*
t<. to enable it to act nnderstandiagty on the nomi
i of one of ita own memhera to office. Ihe ref?
erence of Senator Snei?nan's name to-day cannot,
honorer, be eonsideired M<disooorteons to him, Had
kat aaniliislimi been sent in alone, it would nn
deobtedlj have been 80081 upon at once; hut hit
iii.ii.i.li: t. confirmation to-day, while action on the
welnth'T of tbe Cabinel ?> pootponed, eonld only
11 ' snatrued invidiously to the others.
The committee? of the Senate will probably be
?n:io,i;ii ,,i and ???????ted toaaorrow. The Cabinet
noatiaatioae will then bs referred to them, and U is
hardly probable that they will Im reported hack to

aeerned to be generally a? qaiesced 1b that oil must

ence of the nomination of Mi. Bohon t" the Finance
O.nii-iitt?M), anil quite B number of Senator* de
manded the roferoacc of Mr. Key's nomination. In
fact, then woo moro or less objection to every one
of tin in, ami there is every probability of oo excited
debate over the appointments when they come be>
tare the Senate again. There wet* perhapa tenor
a ilo7.en Senators who made obje.-tioim to one or
another of the nominations, an 1 a ntunbef of them
spoke at the asme instonl ?>f nine.
After the aii.i'.uniment, the l-ciiioenitic Senators
met in catn-iis sind fully dnteussed the policy to Ik
punned by them ?m the Cabinet nominations.
From the ?.-.'mrul tenor of the debate, it is believed
the Southern Deuiocrstic Benstora will ose th? ir
pow? r in the Executive seariona of the Benote to in
duce the Administration to refuse any recognition
of i'iickurd in I.?nii?i.i'.ia or ol Chamberlain in South
Carolina. Ii is asid by them that if thej c?ui be as
Buredthat the Adminiatration will stand firmly on
Hi?- policy of non-intervention in the Bafalra of those
Mat? s, thev will sup,..?it it by voting to esstfirm
these nominations, and not otherwise. Tbeymsin
t-iin that to accomplish this through the divislona in
the BepabUeoa rank-, will be to win th<- victors tot
which they have s" long contended. No formal
action was taken by the csocoa,
