Tlie result -was anti.-ipatetl in these dispatches
annie time uko. For a week or two it has heen
tim ply a question of how large a majority Mr.
Fni-Ttf would poll.
There is pood reason for believing too that if
Maana, Stanford, Stewart and __d-let*Kf_gg had
failed to meet, the expectation of the Democratic
Senators, other Republican votes could have heen
ohtained to cenfirm Mr. La_H_r. This is imiieateil
hy the silence whieh the Demorraiie Senators ob?
served and the feeling of security they exhibited
throughout the entire session. They ki.cw they
had the vote, They understood that it ifould he
but. a question of endurance wheller Mr. l.itnur
would M cr>iil'rtn"d to day or the next. They
tintened therefore with sullen nnd insolent in?
difference while Republican Senators entered
their Boleaan protest __a__at the con?
firmation of a man whose reconl
represented everything that is had in the annals
nf Siaiithcrn politics. The opposition was led by
Mr. Edmunds, who chit fly discussed Mr. Lamar's
(jiialificatioiis ami exi*eri'enoe as a lawyer. He
grew rather factious and sarcastic at the ex?
pense of affiaaia Pugh and George, both members
of tlie Judiciary Committee, who at the titm- the
rommittee adopted a resolution not to recom?
mend for ctiiilirin.ition as a United States Ju.lire
any man above the aire of sixty had been most
emphatic in their support, of that resolution.
Incidentally Mr. Kdmunds also referred to Mr
Lamar's lack of industry, application nnd per?
severance. Ile spoke for oxer thirty minot*?,
Mr. IIoht followed, reviewing the Southern
methods, te whi'h Mr. Lanai owed his political
advancement. In the most loleian mininer he
nroteoted against the continual inn of Mr. Lamar
lu the names of millions of disfranchised voters,
ll ? w;si.eil ji distinctly nnderoteod that ho bad nn
personal objection to Mr. Ijnmnr. but in vet ina
?gainst inn he d.sitcd to emphasise his con?
demnation of the political outrages xvliich Mr.
lamar 1 ;tl never found either the tirne or in?
timation to criticise.
pun rs xi nr Mt mu. *v\?:t?.
Mr. Evaitl Spoke bri. fly of Mr. I>amar's luck
of cxi*eiieiice as a lawyer and his want of judicial
fr mi' -r. He also explained the strnncaa. attitude
taken itv Mr. ______ in voting agaiaal Mr. Kd
miinils's resolution declaring the XIllili. XlVth
anti XVth Amendments to the Constitution equal
in binding force to any other provision of the
Constitution, and voting for Mr. Morgan*! reso?
lution, ?bowing the difference Itel ween thc two.
ami pointing out. how Improbable, it was that a
man drolaring certain amendments not to have
bron ratified legally could logically give them his
bu -..it. He coii/iiied himself entirely to __?_?
poi n is.
Mr. Sherman, on the other hand, who followed
hini. tri red the opportunity te review in un in?
cisive and forcible manner the entire Southern
ipi' st lon. His speech was free "YOU invective,
moderate in tone, entirely devoid of personality,
lilt for nil thai a startling arraignment of thc
Southern IVmoerBey, whose champion anti
fa.r.m'.st defender Mr. Lamar is. Messrs. Kaw*

Prnnv. Jan. IC?A reporter of "The Free?

Parnell. Mr. Parnell believes there is no doubt,
that ftRYO dlissension PsBttt g_sOB_ tht* members
of the Cabinet and tiiat a (loveinnicnt patt* crisis
mav occur at any time next senson over some
l.nglish question. He urges the I"ariiellites and
1'adieu ls to facilitate Government business anti
thus avoid the charge of obstruction. Ile BByi
the Libcral-Uninni-ds are certain to s.-puiate on
English matters.
Mr. Parnell says that the recent reductions of
rent made hw the I_ind Commission are not half
what the tenants of Ireland nre entitled to and
urges the party to take such action as will oblige
the Sub-Couiuiissioiieis lo re-examine the whole
question. He expresses the belief that the
Nationalists will gain three tn.mbers in Ulster at
the next Parliamentary election.
The followers of Mr. Parnell in Puriiament oro
greatly dis.-aiit laded willi his advice to abandon
obstruct iou methods.

crnor Black who is spendlag the winter in this city
was tO-day ihowi UM article in " The Philadelphia
Tress" icgaidfng the veto _MgB_ft his father wrote
for Governor Pattison, which was suppressed, und
Baked if the (OctS were as stated. He expressed
great surprise that the facts should have been
made public and said that he had not had occasion
to refresh his mind In lime.
Governor l.ittison signed the hills, and for that
rcasou lie would have to decline to talk ahout
tlu-m. In answer to further inquiries, lie said
that, there wns no doubt, that his father did write
sn. li u niessu.-e, hut ns to thc other facts Itt! would
have nothing to say now.
A member of Congress from Pennsylvania said
th. the fact that the message wa.s written for
i,i,t iTti.tr Pattison by Judge Blaok was well known
at Ilarrisbur,.' at the time, as the Judge wits sto|>
ping at the Lochiel Hotel and informed several

dinner to the Supreme Court for signing the bills
that it was the last time Judge Blaca thoko to
Governor Pattison. This number of Congress
?? The hills wer' bad ones. Everybody knew
their character. It was fully shown iu the Legis?
lature and in the newspapers ;i* already shown ia
" The Press.'' Thc luci that ti.e Governor signed
the bills niter what be siu.l on the subject is of
Itself singular. As to the syndicate actinpr under
Hies,, lulls in,.kum a contract with themselves ns a
construction company, and agreeing ui issue $2 la
sleek and bonds for every dollor subscribed that
of course is indisputable. The wholj scheme in
mv opinion ami pratt'cully a blackmailing one
against the Pennsylvania, which Unalla did
pay ?5,600,000 to end it. Everybody who was

freezing up the prairies, reached tho city and sault the
mercury down to Ki0, tho lowest point tbat lt reached
before daylight. With tho sun tho air grew warmer
and tl.o mercury asceuded until noon, when tho ther?
