Our Theater amusement season will soon close for repairs. The spring base-ball fever is breaking out again in this city. A female child fiddler is the latest street nuisance of the tramp order in town. Temperance meeting again to-night at the Olympic Theater, on Jefferson street. The recorder's docket yesterday failed to furnii an item of news worthy of notice. Soon the shell-oyster season will fade away. The next month . has an "r" in it, however. The general council will meet at the tisual hour to-night for the purpose of trans acting unfinished business, etc. Memphis, it seems, is in danger of be ing mandamu3ed out of existence by the courts. Is there no legal remedy ? A majority lick postage-stamps with their tongues when affixing them, to letters. The "gum" used on stamps is a potato starch. Not a day passes but a dozen business men are arrested by the police for doing bus iness without having the necessary license from the city. The Fhenix club will celebrate its first anniversary with a fancy dress ball at the Moponerchor hall, on the night of the twenty sixth instant. Several sporting Memphians are over on the Arkansas prairies, back of Devalls Bluff, shooting snipe and other game birds, and with fine success. Rev. Eugene Daniel is to preach the commencement sermon for the young ladies of the Synodical college, at Florence, Ala bama, on the ninth of June, 1878. With this week "the regular dramatic season of the Memphis Theater closes. We will, however, have other dramatic attrac tions for a month or two at intervals. Work on the customhouse will not be recommenced until congress determines whether or not the building is to be finished with Tennessee marble or other stone.- Two or three days since several convicts escaped from the convict farms in this end of the State.

Several young persons in this city have become almost blind, and. have to be led, be cause they bad taken too much quinine, which drug affects the nervous system, and especially the optic nerve. People should look out and not be taken in by the counterfeit trade-dollars now being emptied upon the public. They can easily be detected, being nearly twenty grains lighter than tne genuine, and slightly smaller. Mrs. A. E. Cutter. M. D., will commence another class for teaching the use of elec tricity as a remedial agent in all diseases. Thursday, March 14t,b, at four o'clock in the atternoon, in her room, JNo. 19o Mam street. The committee appointed bv the cham ber of commerce is preparing an elaborate memorial to congress in favor of tbe South ern and Pacific railroad, and making Memphis tbe terminal point east or the Mississippi nvt-r. In the Shelby county circuit court, yes terday afternoon, Judge Heiskell charged the jury in the case of the Freedmen's sav ings and trust company vs. W. L. Marsh, a suit for the recovery of ten thousand - dollars, loaned by the company to Marsh in 1872. On the corner of Third and Jefferson streets, yesterday, two intoxicated men in a spring wagon collided with a rockaway, in which were two ladies and several children. The rockaway lost a wheel and the ladies were thrown out, but lortunatelv no serious damage resulted. At the last meeting of the Hibernian mutual relief society the following officers were elected: John Lilly, president; James Reilly, vice-president; M. Garvin, treasurer; Dennis Smith, recording secretary; William Dean, financial secretary: Bernard Smith, sergeant-at-arms. At half-past nine o'clock last niffht a fire broke out at residence No. 380 Vance street, near Cynthia, but it was suppressed in a few minutes by tne occupants and neighbors. No damage was done, except to some cloth ing, etc., which was destroyed. The cause of the fire was accidental. Last night a United States cavalry guard from Little Rock,' Arkansas, placed two de serters at the stationhouse for safe-keeping until this morning, when' they will leave for New Orleans. The deserters are George Dessinger. of the Fourth artillery, and Wm. Jfines, of Custer's Seventh regiment of cav alry. Testerdav H. L. Douglassji resident of Big Creek Spring, identified as his property a yoke of oxen stolen trom him by Henry Wilson, colored, who was arrested by the de tectives on Monday last. Wilson was com mitted to jail by Recorder Quigley, yesterday afternoon, to answer before the criminal court. Yesterday, at the county register's office. a document was nied snowing that Air. Thomas Bvrd. of Ripley. Tennessee, had pur chased from the First national bank, of this city, the flouring-mill building, machinery, et:., situated on 1 hird street, near tne ceaie street bayou bridge, at and for the sum of seven thousand dollars. Yesterday Marshal W. B. Haskin, of Osceola, Mississippi county, Arkansas, ar rived in tbe city from Paris, Tennessee, hav ing in charge a prisoner named Rufus Gates, who, with two other white men, are charged with burglarizing and robbing a store at Osceola in January last. The officer, with his prisoner, left by boat lor Osceola last evening. Last night a negro named Louis Harri son was arrested and locked up at the sta tionhouse on the charge of committing a nameless crime, which, in a recent test case in our court, was held not to be even a mis demeanor under the laws of Tennessee, yet it should be made a felony, subject to the penalty of imprisonment in the penitentiary for life. At the chancery court, yesterday, Mary Ann Warren filed a petition for divorce against Eli M. Warren, alleging that they intermarried in this county in 1873, and lived together until the year 1875, when the pe titioner was compelled to withdraw from the domicil of her said hatband because he failed and neglected to provide for her support and that of her children, who were on the verge of starvation, etc.. wherefore she prays for a vivorce a rinculo, and that she be restored to all the rights and privileges of a femme sole The temperance movement is gaining strength daily. An enthusiastic meeting was held last night at the old Olympic Lhea tor. on Jefferson street, and a large number was added to the litt cf the ''Knights of the Red Ribbon." To-night the Good Templars meet at the ball of the Knights ot I'ythias, 260 Seoond street, to fill up their list ot char ter members, which they intend to make at least one hundred strong. Ladies are spe cially invited to go with their brothers, sweet hearts or husbands and join the Good Tem plars. Memphis should have one of the branch mints to be established for the purpose of coining the "dollars of our daddies;" but probably it is thought that the branch of mint for the manufacture of juleps is suffi cient for the Bluff City. The mint-julep season has come. On Monday last new spring mint was delivered about town, and at all the leading saloons the smell of the aromatic plant predominated. The Virginians, and other people who know what is good, are on a mint-julep basis at present. The dictionary defines a "mint julep" to be "a drink consisting of brandy, sugar and pounded ice, with a sprig of mint." This is all our reporter knows about it, and this is hearsay testimony, he having no per sonal experience on the subject." Memphis contains many learned and elo quent men who could entertain audiences with public lectures on the live topics of the day. Our literary societies should get these gentlemen to deliver lectures, say weekly, at some hall. Let a home lecture bureau be or ganized. Among tbe lecturers who could entertain audiences may be mentioned Colonel George Gantt, Hon. Emerson Etheridge, General Luke E. Wright, Judge Archibald Wright, Mr. Henry Craft, Mr. G. M. P. Tur ner, Captain J. Harvey Mathes, Judge Henry G. Smith, Colonel George R. Phelan, Mrs. E. A. Meriwether, and a score of others. Health-officer Erskine is opposed to the discharge of the sanitary men. Now that warm weather has set in, we need a strong sanitary force who will give this mat ter strict and close attention. The idea of making the police force sanitary officers, and to do such work in addition to their other du ties, is a humbug worthy of a lunatic. Ev erybody who knows anything about the po lice knows that they are not going to organ ize themselves into a sanitary committee, and thereby add a hundred fold to their legiti mate duties as guardians of the public peace and the protectors of life and property; but the sanitary men have been discharged, and the police have been ordered to report nui sances and obstructions, enforce the sanitary ordinances, and act in conjunction with the board of health in preventing and removing nuisances. "Penny wise and pound foolish." PERSONAL. Mb. John M. Gbacik and wife, of Arkan sas, after spending a few days in our city en route from New Orleans, leave on the steamer Hattie Nowland for their home to-day. S. M. Roberts, New York; J. H. Park, Mississippi; C. W. Huntington, Boston; R. Slater, England, and Robert E. Steger, Mos cow, Tennessee, were visitors at the cotton exchange yesterday. Dn. Lovatt gives free examinations at the Peabody hotel the remainder of this week. Call early in the day.Jas his rooms are crowd ed in the afternoon. Rido up on the eleva tor. ' His diagnosis is wonderful. Says the Osceola (Ark.) Times: "During our visit to Mardi Gras we had the good for tune to meet Miss Katie Carl, an artist of talent, rare culture and refinement. Miss Carl is a young lady of whom Memphis is justly proud, and bids fair to rank among the foremost of modern artists, and win for her self a fame that will go down in the history of Tennessee with a luster attained but by few of her fair daughters. AMUSEMENTS. Mr. irCnlloaglTs Encasement. Last night, at the Memphis Theater, the audience enjoyed the presentation of Damon and Ptthias, a popular five-act play, full of good situations and dramatic dialogues. Air. M'Cullough, as "Damon," was excellent, and was liberally applauded. He was well supported by the Davey dramatic "company. To-night one of Shakespeare's grandest cre ations of genius, King Lear, will be the at traction. This role is one of Mr. M'Col lough's best impersonations, and will no doubt be witnessed by a large and critical audience. To-morrow night the Gladiator will be presented, and at the Saturday mati nee Virginia. Theater-going people should not fail to witness M'Cullougb in these fine roles. It may be years before this fine actor will make ' another southern tour, as at the close ot his New York engagement he will go to England, and remain there for several LAW REPORTS.

Abstracts of Supreme Court Deelslonn. Nashville, December term, 1877. Reported for tbe American, by Robert L. Morris, sq. THE CODE, SECTION 4379, CONSTRUED. This section dees not mean that no decree shall be executed until after three yearB from its rendition or service ot a copy of same upon defendant, but that within this time he may, by proper proceedings, show that it is unjust and wrong, and be allowed to defend against the same. Hays vs. Cornelius, March 9, 1878. PROFERT OP BILL SINGLE TRANSCRIPT. The profert of a bill single without over does not make it a part of the record. The appellate court can only look to the terms of the note as set forth in the declaration. 3 Head. 506. Jordan rs. Bond, March 9, 1878. Nor does the code, 2952, which provides for a' jury to assess damages upon judgment by default, when the amount due cannot be as certained by simple calculation, make the note a part ot tne record in this court. lb. JUDGMENT BY DEFAULT ADMISSIONS. Upon a decree pro confesso in chancery or a judgment by default at law, the defendant is supposed to admit the precise averments of the bill or declaration, it ne would in any manner negative said averments he must do it at the proper time and in the proper man ner, lb.

To a suit against an administrator who had qualified in 1865, and his sureties, for money collected by the administrator in 1871, the sureties plead the statute of six years; held that, under the code, section 2775, the statute began to run, not from the date of the bond, but from the accruing of the cause of action, which, in this instance, was the collection of the money in 1871. il'Brootn rs.

Where the vendor and vendee had verbal ly rescinded a sale of land and the vendee had abandoned it, it was in error in the court to refuse to allow the recision to be set np, and to grant the widow of the vendor dower in the land. (The chancellor ordered in stead a sale of the rand to satisfy a vendor's lien.) Ib. , DOWER. In the case of Kate Garrett vs. Jese Col lins et als, March 9, 1S78, the court diyides upon the question of an allotment of dower to the widow. Judges Turney, Sneed and Chief-Justice Deaderick reaffirm the princi ples of valuation laid down in Vincent vs. Vincent (1 Heis.,834), which in the allotment excludes the value of the improvements. Judge Freeman, who was absent from the bench when that case was decided, and J udge M'Farland. who had not then been elected. in a lengthy opinion dissent, and asks that Vincent vs. Vincent be overruled, ana tnis, If we think, foreshadows its downfall. CONGRESSIONAL. ; A Bill Providing For and Regulating the Counting of the Yote for President and Vice-President The Xe w Or leans and Pacific Railway Bill. Sharp Debate on .the Timber Depreda tion Question and the West Point Appropriation Bill, In which Blaine, Mathews and Sargent are Principals. The Diplomatic Appropriation Bill and Southern Ante-War Postal Contracts the Chief Topics In the Honse, with Hewitt, Jones, Atkins and Others in the Caste. In the Senate. Washington, March 13. Senator Win dom, from the committee on appropriations, reported without amendment the house bill making appropriations for fortifications and other works of defense, and the armament thereof, during the fiscal year ending June 30, 1879. Placed on the calendar. COUNTING THE VOTE FOR PRESIDENT AND VICE-PRESIDENT. Senator Merrimon introduced a bill .to pro vide for and regulate the counting of the vote for President and Vice-President, and the decision of questions arising thereon, which was referred to a special committee. Sena tor Merrimon expressed the hope that a re port from the committee would soon be made, as four months of the session had passed and action should be had upon the matter at this Bsssion of congress. THE N. O. AND P. RAILWAY BILL. Senator Kellogg introduced a bill to aid the New Orleans and Pacific railroad compa ny, which was referred; also, to establish a mint at New Orleans, authorizing the coin age of gold and silver thereat, and making an appropriation therefor. Referred. TIMBER DEPREDATIONS. Senator Mathews called up a motion sub mitted by him yesterday, to refer the com munication of the secretary of the interior, in regard to timber depredations, to the com mittee on public lands and have it printed in the liecord. Senator Mathews said that he asked to have the document printed in the Record as a matter of justice, as the depart ment from whichit emanated had been at tacked yesterday in the senate. Senator Blaine said that he thought it fair that the secretary of the interior should be heard, but at the same time the senator from Ohio must be aware of the fact that he was asking an extraordinary privilege to have this document so printed. He reserved to himself the right to reply to it because the document was in reply to what he said in the seriate upon a recenE occasion. Senator Sargent opposed the printing of the document in the Record as setting a bad precedent, and not because the contents ot it was so very creditable to its author that he feared them. He argued that the document was made up from the statements of spies who followed men into their places of business and reported their conversations. He referred to the action of congress in abolishing spies in the custom service, and said congress then put the stamp of condemnation upon using Fouches as a method of spies. After some further debate Senator Mathews read the reply of the secretary of the interior as part of bis remarks. Senator Blaine spoke at length of the ac tion of the secretary of the interior. He said the secretary did not happen to be a native of this country; he could not help that, and he Blaine did not mention it as a reproach to him. He was born in the kingdom of Prussia, which was fifteen thousand square miles less in extent than Montana, and the secretary, perhaps with the institct of his boyhood, applied the land laws of Prussia to Montana, and not the land laws which have been used in settling the United States, Senator Blaise argued that the secretary of the interior forgot (be magnitude ot tne country, although- he was charged with the administration of that department which should study it carefully, and that the one dollar per acre stumpage demanded by him from the people of Mon tana was excessive. The woodland within sight of the spire of Trinity church, in New York city, would not bring the stumpage which the secretary of the interior demanded of the people of Montana. It was a thing conceded by the government that the hardy pioneer who went forward to settle the coun try should have the water, air and wood free. Referring to the abolition of the informers' system in the customs service, abolished a few years ago, he spoke of the course of the secretary of the interior, then a member of the senate, and said he waxed wroth because the rich importer was interfered with by de tectives, but now the lonely settler in Mon tana could be visited by spies and pimps. Pending the discussion the subject was laid aside, and the West Point appropriation bill was taken up. THE WEST POINT APPROPRIATION BILL. Various amendments reported by the com mittee were agreed to. The committee also spoke in favor of striking out the third sec tion of the house bill, which provides that only such number of graduates of the acade my in any one year snau oe entitled to ap pointment as second lieutenants in the army as are required to fill the vacancies of that grade existing on the first of J uly in each year. Those entitled to appointment to said vacancies to be determined by tne academic board on the basis of their standing in the graduating class, and hereafter no supernu merary officers shall be attached to any com pany or corps of the army, and all graduates of the academy who are not appointed to the army under the provisions of this act shall be discharged on the graduation of their class. Senator Sargent submitted the following as a substitute to that section : "The cadets at large at the military academy shall not hereafter exceed ten in all, and no new ap pointments shall be made until the number of such cadets heretofore appointed falls be low ten." Senator Sargor.t said that, by habit, the appointment of ten cadets at large had been made every year instead of every four years, and, therefore, there were forty cadets at larere, ten in each class. . irnnator Blaine submitted the following as an aulendnient to that of Senator Sargent: "That the ten cadets appointed at large shall, in all cases, be taken from among the de scendants of those who have served in the army or navy of the United States." Senator Sargent said . he did not think it would be proper to amend the bill now so as to cut off from the appointment of cadets at large those of at least one-half of the States of this Union referring to the southern States, of course. He knew that Senator Blaine did not mean to do that, but the amendment would have that effect. Senator Blaine said he had no such inten tion, and he did not think the amendment would have such effect. He Blaine did not bring in the question here about discrimi nating against one half of the people of this country'; it was brought in by the senator from California Sargent. If he insisted upon that issue, then he Blaine would say all right, let him take it; those who fought for the Union deserved the appointments. After some further discussion Senator Win dom made a point of order that the amend ment proposed new legislation, but it was decided that the point was made too late. Senator Windom moved to lay the amend ment of Senator Blaine on the table, and the motion was agreed to yeas, 39; nays, 13. Tbe question then recurred on the amend ment of Senator Sargent, and Senator Math ews moved to strike out "ten" and insert "forty." In explanation of the amendment, he said that the practice had been to have ten Presidential cadet appointments in each class, being forty in all, during the four years. He did not think it fair to deny these appoint ments at the beginning qf this Presidential term. Senator Windom moved to lay the amend ment of Senator Mathews on the table. Agreed to. Senator Hoar moved an amendment to that of Senator Sargent, as follows:. "But this provision shall not be held to require the discbarge of any cadet heretofore - ap pointed." - i ; The amendment of Senator Hoax was ac cepted by Senator Sargent, and the amend ment as amended by . Senator Hoar was agreed to. Senator Thurman opposed the striking out of the third section of tne house bill, and said he was in favor of any step tending to reduce the cadets at West foint and Annapolis to one-half their present number. The number of officers we now have in the army is alto gether disproportionate to the number of men. ; As the third section of the bill had already been stricken out, and a new one inserted, he moved the following as an additional itpm : "That only 6uch num ber of graduates of the United States mili tary academy in any one year thall be enti tled to appointment as second lieutenants in the army as are required to fill the vacancies of that grade existing on the first of July in each year, and all graduates of the military academy who are not appointed under the provisions of this act shall be discharged upon the graduation of their class, but this section shall not apply to cadets now at the acade my." Senator Windom moved to lay the amend ment on the table, which was agreed to yeas, 23; nays, 25. The bill was then reported to the senate, the amendments made in com mittee of the whole agreed to, and it was read a third time and passed. Senator Paddock called up the senate bill supplementary to the act in relation to the Hot Springs reservation in the State of Ar kansas. It continues the commission ap pointed by that act to hear the cases of claimants, etc., until the first of October, 1878, and provides that they Bhall each re ceive compensation at the rate of five thou sand dollars per annum. Senator Dorsey moved to amend the bill so as to continue the commission until Februa ry 1, 1879, instead of October 1, 1878. Agreed to. He also submitted an additional section au thorizing the superintendent of the reserva tion to lease the site, with its privileges for furnishing baths, etc., to the Hot Springs mountain water company, giving to said company the right to construct a reservoir on Hot Springs mountain to supply the reserva tion with water, etc. Agreed to. The bill was then read the third time and passed. Senator Conkling called up the house bill to make persons charged with crimes and of fenses competent witnesses in United States and Territorial courts. Passed. Senator Thurman called up the Pacific rail road sinking-fund bill, that it might be un finished business to-morrow, and the senate at half-past four o'clock adjourned. In the House. THE DIPLOMATIC APPROPRf ATIOX BILL. After the introduction and reference of a few bills, the house went into committee of the whole, Mr. Cox N. Y.J in the chair, on the diplomatic appropriation bill. The com mittee having proceeded to the consideration of the bill by sections, Mr. Hale moved to in crease the salaries of the ministers to Great Britain, France, Germany and Russia to sev enteen thousand five hundred dollars, instead of fix:ng them at fifteen thousand dollars, as contemplated by the bill. SOUTHERN ANTE-WAR MAIL CONTRACTS. After considerable debate, Mr. Reagan (by unanimous consent) made an explanation on the subject cf the proposed payment of the mail-route contractors in the Confederate States for services rendered previous to the war, and sent to the clerk's desk, and had read, an extract from his first report as postmaster-general of the Confederacy. The ob ject of the reading was to show that he had been correct in stating that he had, as postmaster-general, directed the mail contractors to continue their service under the contract with the United States, and directed the postmasters to turn over their postage stamps and money to the United States before the contract of service was assumed by the Con federacy. He confessed to having forgotten the subsequent legislation on the subject. He hoped the house would not consider that he had been dealing unfairly or disingeniously with it. Mr. Conger replied to Mr. Reagan. He disclaimed any intention to reflect upon that gentleman in the matter of pay to the south ern mail contractors. That gentleman had contradicted the statement which he Con ger had made as to these contractors having been paid by the Confederate government, and he Conger had met him and overthrown him with his own proclamation. The gentle men from Texas had also denied that these contractors had been paid by the Confederacy, but his Conger's colleague Mr. Willets had produced proof that they had been. He did not wish to say anything personal about the gentleman from Texas. He accepted his explanation for whatever that gentleman might consider it worth, still the charge remained unanswered, that the gentlemen on the other side who were famil iar with the legislation of the Confederate congress, and who must have known that over eight hundred thousand dollars had been appropriated by that congress to pay these contractors, were silent upon that fact. Mr. Douglas, at this point,. ros to ask a question of Mr. CoDger.1 Mr. Concrer declined to yield for that pur pose, but Mr. Douglas persisted and refused to take bis seat, as required by the chairman. The proceedings were th'ua'lnterrupted until Mr. Wood N. Y. raised the question of or der that the whole discussion was irrelevant to the bill before the committee, and there fore out of order, and the chairman sustanied the point. Mr. Conger then moved a formal amend ment to the bill, and proceeded again to dis cuss the question of southern mail contract ors, when a similar point of order was made by Mr. Luttrell, and was again sustained. Mr. Atkins, chairman of the appropriations committee, expressed his regret that the gen tleman from Michigan had not been allowed to go on in his own way. It would not have done a particle, of harm. A false impression had been made on the committee. Here he was interrupted by a like point of order by Mr. Reed, which was also sustained by the chair. He thought it very unkind in the gentle man from Maine to make the point, but he Atkins had a way of paying debts, and he wonld probably be able to pay that debt during their intercourse. Mr. Reed defended his course in raising the point of order, and intimated that the position held by the gentleman from Tennes see gave him no more right to the floor than any other member. Mr. Atkins declared with some warmth that the insinuation was discreditable to the gentleman's candor. Mr. Reed I have made no insinuation whatever. " Mr. Atkins The insinuation was that I thought I had a right to occupy the floor to the exclusion of any other member. If it did not mean that, it was dribble and nonsense. Mr. Frye objected to any further discussion of the question. DIPLOMATIC APPROPRIATIONS RESUMED. Consideration of the diplomatic appropria tion bill by sections was then resumed, and after the disposal of a number of amendments, Mr. Hewitt N. Y.l said that, yesterday, he had asked the gentleman from Ohio Jones whether Mr. Lee, consul at Frankfort, spoke the German language, and that gentleman answered that he did. He had received a letter this morning from Cyrus W. Field, sta ting that he called upon Mr. Lee last August and had been informed by that gentleman that he did not speak German, but that his wife could speak it a little. Laughter. Mr. Jones said he knew that he read Ger man readily, and that the conversation allu ded to by Mr. Field took place last August, eight months ago. Mr. Keightly was astonished that the gen tleman from New York Hewitt had not heard of General Conly, who had distin guished himself in both military and civil life. General Noyes had been assailed, and if he had been distinguished but for one thing, and that was that he bad nominated R. B. Hayes, he was worthy of any position, because there was no blot or stain upon him anywhere, the revilers to the contrary not withstanding. Mr. Keightly also spoke highly of the con sul at Frankfort, and Mr. Townsend N. Y.J suggested that he did not belong to the right family of Lees. Laughter. Mr. Hewitt N. Y . disclaimed any inten tion of assailing any of those gentlemen, and said that the point of his criticism was that they were appointed as personal friends of the President, and at variance with the Presi dent's declaration that he would not make appointments on personal grounds. Mr. Jones asked whether, if the President knew among his friends in Ohio suitable men for public positions, such men as Secretary Sherman, ne should be debarred from ap"-? pointing him. Mr. Hewitt replied that the President oc cupied a position so high that when he made a declaration to the people he should stand by it without reference to any personal ties or to what he owed to the State of Ohio. When Lee was appointed consul-general to Frankfort, men who. had been long in the service, who were waiting for promotion, and and who had applied for that consulate, were overlooked. Mr. Blackburn ironically professed sym pathy with the State of Ohio as not being fairly treated in the way of public office. It was true she bad the Presidency by a title not patentable, the general of the army, lieutenant-general, chief-justice and an associate-justice of the supreme court, minister to the court of France, secretary of the treas ury in the person of one who was but illy fitted for the office, but still she was at a grievous disadvantage, and therefore it was that one of her Democratic representatives Southard had proposed a constitutional i amendment providing for three Presidents, J because Ohio was not content with furnish ing one. Laughter. Mr. Keifer replied to Mr. Blackburn in 1 regard to the general of the army. He said General Sherman held that position hot by civil-service rul.a but by military service. There had Lecn competitive examination for that appointment laughter and applause competitive examination with those who were fighting for the Union and against those who were fighting to get out of the Union. So it was also with the lieutenant general of the army. Mr. Blackburn Did the present executive succeed to his place also by competitive ex amination ? Mr. Keifer Yes, unquestionably. He ac quired his biyh standing not only as a civihan but as a man who did his duty in the field, trying to uphold his flag and to preseive the integrity of his country. After further discussion, and adoption or rejection of amendments, the committee rose, and the bill and amendments were reported to the house. All the amendments were con curred in, and the bill passed. THE BENNETT POLAR EXPEDITION. Mr. Wood N. Y. moved to take from the speaker's table the senate bill to aid in the Polar expedition designed by James Gordon Bennett. Mr. Kenna said he would object to its pres ent disposition, (and would move its refer ence to the committee on commerce. The speaker stated that the motion would be in order. Mr. Wood's motion was agreed to, and the bill was brought before the bouse and read. Mr. Conger made the point of order that the bill made an appropriation, and must therefore be considered in committee of the whole. The speaker asked Mr. Conger to point out any appropriation which the bill made. Mr. Conger replied that it provided for withholding duties on the vessel. The speaker ruled the point of order not well taken. Mr. Kenna moved to refer the bill to the committee on commerce. After a brief discussion the motion to refer was voted down, and the bill passed. INDIAN AFFAIRS. Mr. Scales, chairman of the committee on Indian affairs, gave notice that he would bring before the house next Tuesday the bill to transfer the Indian bureau to the war de partment. The house then, at fifteen minutes past five o'clock, adjourned. 3IATT1XUS. A large line of MATTINGS just received, at 20 cents a yard. MENKES It It OTHERS. A. F. Iod & Co..
