PROGRAMME OF THE FLORIDA AND LOUISIANA FRAUD COMMITTEES?HOW THE WORK IS TO BE DIVIDED ?MR. POTTER IN NEW YOBK. Tito Electoral Investigating Committee will moet to-morrow to organize and to arranso preliminary business. A session would probably bave bcon bold to-day but tho chairman, Mr. l'otlor, went to Now York, and Mr. Morrison, tho second member on the list, did not loci authorized to do anything in bis absence. Tho general opinion is exprosscd that It is a fairly strong committee. Some persons thought that tho republican mombers might refuso to serve, bat no notice of any declination by any of them bad boon reported to-night. It is understood that Mr. McMahon will be chairman of the sub-com mittee wblch will go to Florida, and Mr. Morrison chairman of that which will go X.oulsiana; the latter gentleman, it will be remembered, was chairman of tho Louisiana Investigating Committee of the Forty-fourth Congress. In the ab sence of any programmo us yot It Is only speculation to predict what plan of business will bo followed by tbo committee. The goneral belief Is, however, that the two sub-committees will go South immediately, while the remainder of the committeo conduct what, ovorbusinesa may be necessary bore. Every eflort will be made to expedito tho Investigation. It was only on condition that ho should not be dotainca too long from other bnalness that Mr. Huntoa, of Virginia, ac cepted u pluco on tho committee. Mr. Uonton la a candidate lor ru-dectton, and wishes to get hack as soon as possible this summer to his dlstrlot. It Is not improbable that the Investigation will bo finished by the time propossd by the Sonate lor tho adjournment of Congress. Tbo croation of tho committee has de veloped the existence of an overwhelming abundance of unemployed clerical talent In tho United States. Evory Congressman nearly has already bad an appll cation from one or more of his constituents to bs appointed Its clerk, DISCUSSING GENERAL GRANT AND BRIGADIER GENERAL SHIELDS IK THE SENATE. Tne session of the Senate to-day was mainly de voted to tho consideration of tbo bill wblcb passed (be House to put General Shields on the retired list of the army with tbe rant or briga dier general. Tbe Senate Military Committee favorably reported tbo bill by a majority of one vote, tbo lour democratic members snd General Burnslde composing tbnt majority. It was anticipated th.U there would bo a lively debate, but few or tho democratic Senators wero prepared for tho amendment propose! by Senator Sargent to add tbe name of U. S. Grant, with tho rank of General, on tbe retired list, and when tbo vote was taken all tbe democrats except Mr. Lamar opposed it. Tbe amendment was adopted by a majority of one, and tbe Senate nd tourned without Dually acting upon tbo amended bill. It will como up to-morrow as unQolsbed business, but with no prospect ol its passing tbo Senate. Many ?f tho democratic Senators, and among tbein personal (rlonds ol General Sbiclds, say to-nlgbt that there Is but very little hope or tbo passago of tho amended b'll. Tbcy admit that It was a mistake to have of ferrcd tbo amendment, and think it would have been wiser to have solidly votod for the tnaertlon of Goneral Grant's name In tbe bill. Senator Edmunds will opposed the bill on pnnclpio, and with tbe leellng prevailing among tbe democratic Sonators there is little donbt of Its detoat on tbe final vote. The amendment was tbo occasion of a good deal ot lun and sparring. Tbe galleries applauded remarks favorable to ox-President Grant, whicb, though In violation of tbo rulct of tbe Sonato, was excused on patriotic grounds Senator Hill, ol Georgia, provoked tne staid Senators to hilarious laughter when be said tbat tbe democrats ought cbeorlully to voio to retire Gen era! Grant, and tbat bo beltoved tbey would do so If there were reasonable assurances tbst be would remain in retirement, bat all who were familiar with tbo blstory ot tho man knew tbat bo was not of a retiring nature, and bo did Dot bolieve tboro wna any way to kocp lum In retirement. VEITING OF TBE DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COM MITTEE?PROPOSED ADDRESS TO THE COUNTRY CONCERNING THE PRESIDENTIAL INVESTIGA TION. The National Democratic Committee will moot la Washington next Wednesday, and a (nil attendance is expected by tbe members now in tho oity.

Baltimore now was tho grand reservoir of grain lor the West and Northwest, tio referred to the large shipments of pork and other Western products from that port, aad said it wjs tho nearoil outlet lor Western products to foreign lands. Ho spogo ol the effort* tuado in previous years to ac complish tbo work ol constructing this canal and the fluanoial distress of Into years whioh had prevented It. The State ol Maryland now renewed with confi dence Its petition for national aid in tho development ol this important routr. TUK I'KOPOSKD CANAL. Tho proposed canal would begin at tbe month ol tho Choptauk Kivor, about atty-ihree miles lroin Baltimore, and would mriko tho Delaware Buy about lour miles nbovo the breakwater. The length ol tbo canal would be about forty miles, and vessels bound irom Baltimore to F.urope or to any of our northern ports would suvo from 180 to 190 tulles. Ho referred to precodonts tor the appropriation lor such sur vey and gave notice that he would urgo Ills auicndmoul oclore tho Sonata at the proper time behoving the work was ono ot national imparl ance and lroo (rem all constitutional objections.

Mr. Ui.ai.xk, of Maiue, said ho did not quite concur Id what had been mild by the honorable Senator from Illinois (Mr. Oglcsby) respecting the amendment oITored by the Senator Irotn Caitlornia (Mr. Sargent). General Scott was retired Irotn the beau ol the army with lull rank, pay and atlowunces; was there any Senator on thle floor who wiahed to any by hts 7010 that the services of Goncral Grant were not as Important us those of General Soottf Aa to hla military renown and bis achievements in the war lor the Union thore could be no dispute nmong Senators on either side of the chamner. It hau been asked whether General Grant requested the passage ol this act. He hud not. It was tne vol untary nature ol tbo act, and, might he (Mr. Jiluuie) not hopo, the unauimity of tbo act, which would givo It grace? Let General Grunt go to the retired list, whence the people took him He aid not know that bo was the Senator who should speak for General Grant. He never was on term* of lntiinuoy wltlt him, but he (Mr. Blaine), as an Amoriouu Senator, wus sure that bis consiltuoutf, without regard to party, would approve of aucli acilun ou hla part.

Mr. Edmi'siis, 01 Vermont, said ihe history at this legislation, or rather the history of what preceded It, was a little peculiar. According to public history a certain party in this country had a good many opin ions In the last ten or hlteen yenrs, though the gen eral tendency ol them had been in onedirscuon. That pariy recently proposed to honor one who bud fought aguiust his country tour years, and lha propo sition was met by one to honor one who bad fought tor hla country. He then briefly alluded 10 tne coolest lor the Doorkeepcrsblpol tbo House, and iho bill being passed by that body; and, continuing bis remarks, ?Hi toe person Batted II tbo bill wus uol lit to he employed in public service so long as nuybody who lougbt against the country wantcu the pluce, but he wus 111 to be put on the retired list of the army ot the United Stales, lie then quotod the law providing lor 1 tie retirement of officers after lorty years' ser vice, Ate., and resuming, slid Gcnorsl Shields hud not served either thirty or lorty years in the aruiy ; bo sides, he was not now In It.

On the other hand. General Grant was a rich man.

That was not ibe true alkie ol tbo case. This was tho llrst year it could be brought forward since he tell tbo Presidential chair. He (Mr. Blaine) was willing to volo for General Grant to go on tne retired list, and he was ready to volo for the oil 1 with the amendment. Il ho should be piaoed on tbe retired list it woulu leave General Grant to be disposed of by tbe people, and tbat would be done, no mauer what tbe vlewa o( either sido ot tbo Senalu wore.

Tho ubjeot ol his founding the journal wus charitable, the proceeds being lutendod lur tne vurt ous Jewish charities. Auotlior object was to oppose iho growlug tendency to laxity ol discipline in the Jewish Cbuich. The loamod rabbi advocated with all the vigor ol his pen tho uuciont rites ol the Jews una the maintaining ol orthodox beliefs. Tbe papor pio gressed very well, luough uieeiing with much opposi tion I rum the Atmunmn, published by Air. Hubert Lyons, wnicb nuvocuted tbe new views.

He was a personal friend of Ueuerul Ornnt, who presented blm with a testimonial on tho occasion ol hisgoldon wedding. At tne llmo of bU death Air. Isaacs waa tho oldest Jewish minister in the couutry, and the second who ever lectured here m Kugltsli. Ho might bo styled tho "lather ul tho Jowish clergy" In this city, as no rc slued hero luuger than toy other Hebrew minister. His discourses In tbe old Kim Street Synagogue used to at tract crowds u( visitors?Christians in large uum hers?us no lectured in Kuglish, and so ilttlo was kuuwu of the Jews and Ju<taismut thst timo that people generally attendod lo be informed on thoso topics.
