Washington, April ?.?The question of the ad
salasiun of Dakota into the Union ta not a new
one in thc Senate lt hos been before that
body a number of times; and the claims of tho
Territory have been alily presented by a number
of Urpubltcnn Senators in former Congresses.
They have never, however, been presented in a
Blearer, more striking and more convincing series
af arguments than they were set forth to-day
by Senator Platt, of Connecticut. This, of course,
ls not a rt-flection upon the previous efforts of
fdr. Plait's Republican colleagues. It only goes
Bo prove that he has profited by their experience,
and has known how to utilize thc fact* and fig
ares gathered by them in connection with newer
data, justified by thc rapid development of Da?
kota within thc last two years.
Mr. Plait's long service on the Territories Com?
mittee point.-d to him as the natural champion of
the claims of Dakota when Senator Ilarrison,
af Indiana, went out of the Senate. His speech
of to-day showed that the Republicans made no
mtaakc when they rhos* him a* the chairman of
thia important committee. It was an a>>le speech,
carefully thought out, replete with unanswerable
atat.st les, i.ml delivered in that earnest ami em- j
Cane manner winch carries with it conviction, :
ou?h it may fail to penetrate the pnehy- j
fgaasesesjOM hide of tho average Democrat who
eaauet rise ahove his partisanship lontt.cuough to
do a simple act of justice toward The citizens
of the Territory of Dakota.
F.NTITI.F.D TO KSaV TIfF. NAME X>AKOTA.
Mr. 1'latt said that the bill was one of four
which had been reported by BOO Committee on
Territories for thc admission of new States It
provided for the admission of the southern part
of Dakota, under a constitution already formed.
The other three lulls were <-u<?liliug acts tor the
Teri ii 01 les of Washington, Montana and tlic north- j
ern portion of Dakota.
Suggestions, he said, had been made ne^inst
thc use of the names of North Dakota aud South I
Dakota. Some people had o fancy for IndUn j
names: others for those of distinguished Ameri
eaiu. of former years. While bc would be gted
te respect this sentiment (for li was nothing but ;
a at aliment), the conditions were such that tho
name ot Dakota could nut be taken away from j
en. r portion of thu Territory without injustice j
and without doing violence to the feeling and
snaliee ol', he believed, every inhabitant in the \
Territory. To give some other timur man Dakota j
tm silkes, portion of the Territory would seem like ?
theran thonties of a town going into a fuuiilj ami
iruwsiintj on giving to its members other names
than those they Lad received from their parent**.
It would be a* unjust as to attempt to change
the name of North Carolina or South Carolina.
The PTOBOOtd State of South Dakota had a popu
iav.'ui ol 4 00.000, and he thought they had a right
to he admitted as a State in time to participate in
Ui* next presidential election.
Mr. Vest?Do you wean that the people of South Dakota
have a tego! and i-nut-tltuttunal right lo come Into the
Halon ak a Mate wilso ui action on thc part ot Congress 1
Br. Tlalt-Ku.
Ur. Yen-That claim BOB been ai>?eit?d, and I wanted
Bs know wbether the fMMSM from Connecticut luUuised
Shat preposition or not.
Ha l'lstt? I do nut claim that the people of Dakota
aaa set up a btsto Government fur themselves Imlepeii
Beal I of tbe action ut Congress, lmt I do claim llial they
fcjrr. a lieut tn form a coiistllullou and that Congress has
mc ricki to deny their ada.li.aWm.
TOO | tftVI POI A blNGI.E STATE.
Eixaluug ot the division of the present Terri?
tory lie said thai so strongly convinced was he
that ihe Territory ougnl to be divided, he would
Be in laver of it, ev eu if tbs people of the Ter?
ni, iy were ugambt it. Tko PSUMIU Territory
?m. too laite for vue State lt was 4110 mi lea
long lu,ia north to south, and 40U miles wide
from casi lo weet, lt was very mich target
th?u 1.inland, Ireland, BooUand and Wales; ami,
(aside I kiiu Its uou-commcrcial qn ail th j , capable
of saataininc ns large a population. The area I
ot these oouattiea amounted to 121,000 aquaro
aailcs; that Of Dakota to 140000. lt was as
large, plaiticully, as thc State*, of New-York. Pciin
BOfraiua, New-Jei-sey. Maryland and Virginia
combined; as large ns nil New-Ainglaed, New-York
and Ncw-Jerosy; kuper thoa Ohio, Indiana and ,
Illinois combined. The proposed State ol South
DaWoia would be 77.0UU square uu'.cs, and that
was certainly lars'- enough fer on agricultural ;
State. He had sieii a Waahingtoo dispatch to n
Dakota newepapef atotlng thai Dakota would bo
admitted u^ a whole, and the dispatch was prim?
ed with the beading, " An Imperial Stale." There
sjras BO " Imperial Slate" wanted in tins country. ,
No Stale was wanted BO great and strong as to
glory in it*, comparative greatncea. I'hy-iral
as v.\* ll as !?? pal equality among tho Stales was
what was wanted No itate should he ovcr
ebedowt-d bp any tither Stale.
As io tbe suggestion linnie at tbe last oeofdon
that the cuiiint-' up nt Territortet into numerous
States would convert the Senate into a mob,
Mr. Platt replied that ii was better that the
Benair should be so enlarged as to represent the
Cpular will and to feel UM popalac pulse tlian
it a State should be admitted so large as to
have an abnormally large representation in tho
?boboc ol Bepeeaeetetivee
lhere were now in th*' Union nine States bavin
jpop
Boutli Dakota. He argued that South Dakota
ha jMipulalion than the proposed Slate
a
had brought herself within thc precedents under
which States had been admitted. It could r.ot
be said that she had done anvthin; irregular.
Why should she not be admitted?and admitted
now ? Why should her prayer be longer denied ?
Why should tbe Senate turn a deaf car to her
6rayer P Why should tbe Renate refuse lo par
eipate in that greatest aud grandest act of legis?
lation?'he admission of a new State into the
Union, thus adding to the grandeur, thc strength,
the glory and the renown of the Amercan P.e

Mr. Butler obtained the floor; and the bill
Brent over till to-morrow.

Among tho bills Introduced and referred was one
by Mr. Al.UbUN (by request) for Lae establishment of
a permanent court of arbitration br tween tim United ' ,
Mates and Oreel Ilritaln and France. (
Senator Cl'l.LOM presented a series of resolutions ! ,
adopted by the Chamber of Commerce of NOV York, j j
urging ibo adoption of amendment* to th" interstate j j
Commerce act, lo prevent fraudulent practices on th*
part nf dishonest shippers by misrepresent al lon of the
character and weight of goods offered foi shipment. , i
The West Point Academy Appropriation hill was I (
reported from the Senate Committee on Appropriations .
without aDy chango In the amount t?3ir>,O00> sp- !
Sropriated by the bill as lt came from the House. The
snate Committee took Into consideration the propo?
sition to build a new academy building fur iMPfMKX) ,
and a uew gymnasium for ifiiT.OOO, but In view of the f
charge of extravagance likely to be brought apatmt j
the committee lt nu 'laded not to make tbe additions
proposed to the hill.
A hill lu remove the political disabilities of Robert
Johnson, of tho State of New-York, was passed. I .
'Ihe bill to autborlzo the sale to allens of certain
mineral lands was takon up for consideration, and Mr. I
PAULKMKB (a member of tho Committee on Mine* and i
Mining, from which the bill wan rejmrtedl spoke In .
opposition to lt. Mr. FAULKNER argued that there
was no reason for the bill. The mineral Industries of J
the country were being sufficiently developed now, and I
not, to any appreciable extent, by the aid of foreign
capital. Tb* census of lr>80 showed the existence of J
1.172 deep mines In Ihe Wostern Territories and Hates, j
and of lho?e only seventeen were owned by foreigners? '
ppves of them In I tah. He moved sn amendment *
piovtding that, where mining claims which have beou J
patented are acquited by a partnership, a majority of l
the partners and of the trustees ur directors shall J
bo *-!tlz.ern of the United ftate*. !
Mr. EV ARTS said thar, in his Judgment." the whole *
subject of the Investinent by foreigners In mining
operations In the Territories was entirely apart from
the question of allowing the owners hip of soil by
forelpnen. He regarded the matter of (he investment |
bv fnrelcners In mining operations In Ibo Territories ' .
ot foi-elgn tapttaf In mines as falling under tho head >
ut trade. J
The discussion haring closed, the question was fallen (
on the amendment offered by Mr. Faulkner, and fhe
Tote was announced as. yea* 20. nays 17. No quorum '
having voted the roll was called, and forty-six. Senators , i
answered to their names without any farther vote on j ,
thc bill or amendment, the bill was laid a.<-!de.

The fleneral Term of the ^'Hy Court has reversed the
judgment rendered against John A. K. Duval, as
assignee of Mrs. ?. Guion, in his suit against Hoi-nee
ll. Wellman, the proprietor of a matrimonial agency.
On the trial of the iase, in which tho return of $50
deposited with the defendant by the widow In search
of a husband was remanded, the Jury was directed to
find a verdict for the defendant on the ground that tho
contract lo obtain for lier a Ufo partner was void as
against nubile policy. Chief Justice McAdam says:
"Tbe mau 111101.1*1 agent does uot occupy * uiuch
more favorable posit iou In the eyes of tho law than
gambling and lottery shop keepera', card moule play?
ers, and mock auctioneers, for money and property
