Tin- scenes after midnight were of the ?inietest character, and tin Senator? buck tod themselves down to their work with uuDsual patience and energy. The ?attendant e was rather small, but the working members were mostly in their ?seats, and only the nil? is and a few sick Senators were absent from their places. To those who watch the procc?5dings of this l>ody it i? known that the business is gem-rally co-odacted by a Rmall number, and that the roll-calls nearly always represent sections or polities. The fiUmate chamber was exceedingly hot and un? comfortable last night, being shut in as it is fr?.in the outside air by ?corridois and < oinmitt?<'-rooiiiH, and the Senator? worked at a disadvantage. Tl.c Knndiy Civil Appropriation Hill, however, bail been Kt asa task, and there was a ?It ? terminal ion to finish it. The regular amendments of the Appm priations Committee were linished at about 1 o'iioek, and amendments by individual Beaators followed. Good progress was making, and the prospect of getling away was hopeful, when Sen? ator Withers offered an aiiiemrmeiit to pay tlie al rcaily : n mail contractor? who had back claims against the Tinted Stataa at the tin:? ?)f the breaking out of the war. la .?larch, 1877, ?375,000 was appropriatcl to pay these claims, but the Secretary of the Treasury found from the Confederate archives that the ?rebel Congress had made appropriation? to cover these claim-'. and t; -in had in <-n panl I..

A penalty was affixed for present ing? claim already paid, and bonds aro to be re? quired from those r*5ei?ing payment. It is proba? ble that an intellig?Dt conference committee may ?fur all cut the amendment from the bill.
