Attoraor V'alkor apilied for a modification
of the recent attachment of contempt against
the mayor and members of the common
council for refusing to ievy, collect and pay
the Xiooteon pnremunt tax as commanded by
mandamus in the T. E. Brown case. The
application was that the mayor and members
of the council submit to a fine and formal
imprtfonment. The application was refused,
and ths right to appeal from the attachment
thereby not allowed by virtue of any modifi
cation. A late dkpatch from Constantinople last
night riyj that at an unofficial meeting yes
terday the plenipotentiaries virtually termi
nated the labsrs of the preliminary confer
ence. After making some mutual concessions
they have come to an understanding, and
have referred to their respective governments
for definite instructions. Ko definite resolu
tion has bsen drawn up. All questions,
especially that of occupation, have been ex
amined, but nothing yet determined. It is
thought Lord Sali-bury will receive his in
structions Monday evening. If eo, the Porte
will b immediately asked to fix a date for
the meeting of the plenary conference. The

2ew..0kleai;s, .December IS.1 The senate
invesugaiing connnur.ee met in me uniieu
States district court room, in the custom
house. The committee having been called
to order, Messrs. Howe, M'Mullen Minn.,
Ogleiby 111.1, "Wadleigh N. HJ, M'Donald
Lad., and Saubbury Dei., were present;
also, a number of prominet Republicans were
in the room.
The work of the senate committee will be
uzciszzj z:s77 tirs. as it is uie object, oi
the committee to obtain from the returning
board the aggregate vote of the fctate, as re
turned by the supervisors of the different par
ishes ; secondly, the votes of parishes rejected
by tne board, ana also tne vote oi tne pre
cincts in the several parishes which were re
jected. It is doubtful if the committee will
be subdivided, as was done by the house com'
rmttee, as a large number ot witnesses are al
ready here to testify before the committee,
and others are on their way to the city. The
committee hope to finish their work by the
hlteenth ot January, but it is hardly prou-
able that it can be done by that time. Thus
far the house committee ha examined no
witnesses on the Republican side.
In the house committee to-day it was urged
by the Democratic members that a copy
should be procured not only ol Hie super
visors' tab dated statement, but also of the
returns made by the commissioners of dec-
tion to the supervisors, in order that it might
De clearly seen what polls had been thrown
out by the board. Governor Wells, presi
dsnt of the board, was called to give some
information on the subject. He paid he would
furnish the committee with the required state
ments of the votes iolled and of the votes
excluded, but as the board was busy prepar
ing their report to the legislature the clerk
would not have time to make the copies. The
chairman said that the stenographers of the
committee would do the work. The commit
mittec then adjourned until Tuesday at eleven
o'clock. Witnesses have been summoned to
testify in the case of Baton Rouse,
E. W. Bames, manager of the Western
Union Teleirranh company, had been sub-
posnaed to produce ih$ dispatches sent and
received byiveiiogg, racKam, uibuie, war
moth. Carter and General Auger, from and
after the fifteenth of Aueust, 167G, was called
"before the committee, and in answer to the
question Mr. Barnes stated he had not brought
any messages with him; that lie had been in
structed by the ireneral superintendent, Mr.
Van Home, not to deliver nor produce the
messages, consequently he must, under his
instructions, refuse to deliver the telegrams
called for by the subpoena.
The committee, after consultation, adopted
the following resolution, which the chairman
was instructed to communicate to the house
of representatives:
Resolved. That for the efficient prosecution
of the inquiry ordered by the house, this
committee communicate to the house lor its
consideration, the refusal of E. W. Barnes to
nroduce before the committee telecrrams re
ferred to in the subpoena duces tecum, served

being in contempt of the house of repr;
General Hurlburfc moved that the last
clause, "his refusal beinir in contempt," etc,
be stricken ouf, as the house itself was the
best iudcre of the contempt if there was any.
The chairman put the question on General
Hurlburt'8 amendment, and it was lost. The
Renublieans votintr for it and the Democrats
against it. The resolution was then voted
for and carried by a party vote.
A number of colored witnesses were ex
amined, all of whomtestified to the universal
and ireneral bulldozinc practiced by the Re
publicans and to the terrorism, and killing
to which colored Democrats were subjected.
Ex-Governor Wickliffe was also examined at
ient;th and sustained the testimony oi the

colored J democrats.

Governor Wells stated in a conversation
this evening that he should decline to answer

TaJJAiiassee, December 18. Judge
Cocke, oi the canvassing board, authorizes
the statement that the official minutes of the
canvassing boird, published over the signa
ture of the clerk a lew days since, are false in
several particulars. He complains that they
misprint his votes on several issues, and avers
that he voted with his colleagues when he
voted directly and emphatically against
Tallahassee, December 18. The con
gressional committee have been at work to
day. The senate committee will not go to
Jackson county, bat will await witnesses
here. Senator Sargent called the committee
together to-dav. neporters and the public
were dented admission, the sergeant-at-arma
saying he had orders to admit no one. Cards
to'the chairman were returned with the state
ment that the session would be secret. The
day was consumed in examining the Repub
lican members of the canvassing board.
Judge Cocke i3 summoned to appear before
the committee. The house committee, had
before it eighteen negroes whose names were
on the poll-list at Richardson's precinct, in
Leon county, as having voted there, who
swear that tLey did not vote there and were
ngt at the precinct all day. There were votes
in 0:e iikllu'-uox to accord with thew names.
The committee will summon other witnesses
to-morrow. The introduction of colored wit
nesses and their testimony created quite a
sensation. The supreme court continued its
session to-day for hearing. The argument in
the mandamus case will be concluded to-morrow,
and a decision announced probably
Wednesday. General Lew Wallace arrived
Tallahassee, December 18. The counsel
for the board of canvassers filed to-day then
amended answer to the alternate wnt of
rnandamu?, and the matter has been the sub
ject of argument before the supreme court
during the entire day. The amended answer
sets forth the grounds upon which the board
rejected or added votes, or otherwise went
aside from the face of the returns. The coun
sel for the Democrats demurred to the answer,
with which demurrer Judge Emmons joined
issue. The Democrats concluded their argu
ment in support of their demurrer to-day,
and the counsel for the canvassers will occu
py the attention of the court to-morrow,
liic congressional committee is still at work.
The house committee will leave for Jack
sonville m Wednesday morning. -The sen
ate committee commenced work this morning
in the office of the adjutant-general, which !
has been placed at their disposal. The secre
tary of state has been called upon by it for
all the testimony which was produced before ,
the canvassing board, and a corps of clerks is
at wcrk copying it. The committee sat with
closed doors to-day, the State canvassers were
before it.
Escoliedo'M Death and I.erdo's Capture
Confirmed Another IIurHt-Up In
the Camp of the Victor.
New Ohleaks, December 18. Several
merchants from the interior of Mexico ar
rived here yesterday, and they confirmed the
news of the capture of Lerdo and the death
of Escobedo, and the capture oT the City of
Jslexico by General Diaz. Jglesias, irom Leon,
ordered Diaz to hold the City of Mexico and
proclaim the presidency of Ierlesias. which
Diaz declined to do, unless he could name four
memlwrs ol the cabinet. Tins was refused by
Iglesias, when Diaz proclaimed himself pro
visional president, and the revolution now
continues between these rival pretenders, who
are preparing lor a new struggle, neveualtaa
still holds iMatamoras, and reluses all com
munication with the revolutionary chiefs un
til some one of them can show nroDer author'
ity from Iglesias to demand tho plaza; which
none of them have; and he positively refuses
any communication with the bandit Uortina.
His soldierly conduct would make him many
friends but "for the fact that he is proceeding
to collect a tax ol three per cent, on the mer
chants, which they protest is unlawful and
arbitrary. General ltocha is -etui here, en
deavoring to get Reveualtas to turn over to
him. At present all is an uncertainty as to
aflairs in Mexico, as it is not known which
may prove the stronger, Diaz or Jglesias.
.South American Troubles.
New York, December 18. The Panama
Star and Herald, of December 8th, received
per steamer Andes, says: "A oreat battle has
taken place in Garrapala. The trenches of
the revolutionists were taken by our forces,
commanded by Generals Acosta and Co
margo. An armistice ot three days was
asked for by the rebels to bury two thousand
dead of both sides. Our forces cut off the re
treat to Antioquia from the rebels. If the
rebels do not surrender at discretion they
will all remain in the power ol our army. Un
the twenty-first of November, General Tru
jillo occupied Manizales. The Madalia river

The Trouble about the Fast "Hail Ar
New Youk, December 18. There is i

Postmaster James says tlm fault is not with
the postoffice but with the railroad, which re
fuses to accept the mail after three o'clock in
the morninir. I he erenerai superintendent
notified the division superintendent of the
railway mail service that the mails for that

half-past three o'clock; that is, not later than
fifty-five minutes before the starting of the

this mail by the three o clock (morninjr) boat,
which is one hour and twenty-five minutes

The Xcw Jeraej Elector Complication,
Washington. D. C, December 17. The
senate sub-committee on privileges and elec
tions acting under the resolution have ex
amined Benk Williamson, the alleged ineli
gible rresiuential elector ot iew Jersey.
Williamson testified that twenty-five years
ago he wa3 appointed United States commis
sioner; mat ne nau uunng mat lime maue
use of his right as commissioner about twice
and had never received any money through
the office: he had served seven years as chan
cellor of New Jersey since his appointment
as United estates commissioner, and that he
had no idea that he was ineligible until after
he had been chosen elector, and a.s soon as he
found that the question of his ineligibility was
raised, he sent nis resignation to Governor
Beddle. Two witnesses. Governor ucddle
and Secretary of State Delsey, of New Jer
sey, arc yet to give testimony m this case.
This committeo will, to-morrow, take the
testimony of Charles Stifel, G. H. Shields and
Thomas Thoroughman, of Missouri, in the
case of General D. M. Frost, an alleged inel
igible elector of Missouri.
Grandfather and Granddaughter.
It is rather a singular coincidence that at
the burning of two theaters in which were
the greatest number of lives lost ever known
the Richmond theater and the Brooklyn
theater the principal or most prominent
actors in each were "randfather and grand
daughter. At the former, Spencer H. Cone,
who atterward became one ot the most elo-
ouent and prominent ministers in the Bantist
church, who occupied the pulpit in the church
corner ol Broome and hlizabeth streets lor
many years, and probably made more true
converts to Christianity than any other minis
ter. His eldest son, spencer W. tone, was
the father of Catherine Cone, who married
Mr. Isadore Lyon, who now goes by the name
of Kate Claxton, and if the audience of the
Brooklyn theater had followed her advice
probably not a life would have been sacrificed.
Little Kock Items.
Little Rock, December 18. Frank Gian-
ninm, the Italian who, while intoxicated at
the recent great fire, was struck on the head
with a brick bv unknown parties, died to-day
at the Benevolent hospital. All efforts to fer
ret out the parties who threw the brick are
fruitless. A fire on Sixth street, about six
o'clock last night, destroyed H. Himstedt's
barns, in which was stored the band-wagon
of the Hose City band. Loss, one thousand
dollars; no insurance. A collision, resulting
in heavy loss of property to the St. Louis,
Iron .Mountain and bouthern railroad, occur
red yesterday at Malvern between the regu
lar freight train bound south and the north
em extra. Both locomotives were wrecked.
No lives were lost.
Official Stenographic Reporters.
The Nashville Banner reminds its readers
that during the session of the last general as
sembly a bill authorizing the employment of
stenographic reporters in the various courts
was introduced and came near beinir passed.
A similar measure will be presented to the
next legislature for passage or rejection. J. he
experiment has been tried in other States,
and found to operate very successfully, and
the menus ot tne movement would use to
see Tennessee follow in the van.
'So Holiday for the Lower House.
Washington. Dtcember 18. Speaker
Randall and several other leading Democrats
are known to favor sessions of the house dur

strengthened by Representative Morrison's
telegram from New Orleans urging that in
view of the possible need of the exercise of
the power of the house against contumacious
witness?, the usual holiday recess should not
be token.
