Acookdinu to our telegraphic report congreM ia making haate slowly with the batineti before it. , The treauury at Washington, jester Jay, purchased about four hundred thousand ounces of fily.T at a trifle below the quoted rate in London. The ihipments of cotton jesterday were 2019 bale, against 3863 bales at the same time la-t year. Since September 1st, bales, against 114,695 bales at the same time last year. A ecmob prevailed in Washington City, yesterday afternoon, that Senator Scrgect ' wei dying, but subsequent dispatches contra dict thi rumor by reporting his condi ion improving. The trouble between the rival muuicipal governments of East St. Louis are likely to be settled in tbe courts, as they should have been at Grst without the bloodshed and law lesxness that prevailed a few months ago. Sknatok Harris's resolution lookiDg to an investigation into the causes and effects of yellow-fever epidemics was agreed to in the senate yesterday. A matter of serious consideration for every section of this coun try, it met with no opposition. The receipts of cotton, as reported to the cotton exchange yeetorday, were as follows: bales, against 277" bales at the same last year, and 3682 bales the year before. Receipts since September let were 117,720 bali, the year before, lo0,8oo; a decrease of 3.3,165 tales. peakixo of tin charges of ba'lot lot BtutSiw against the Democrats of the south, the W aldington Capital says: "If the ballot boxes were stuffed, end the ignorant intimi dated, it i the only part of our land where stuffing and intimidation result in giving us law-makers who, through teir integrity and intelligence, bava claims to be considered statesmen." CoxqrE9 is promptly patching up the de bauched Hot Springs commissiou bill, and it promises to D3 anion? the first measures adopted the present session. The bill intended to be made a law last session, but was not because of tbe apparently criminal omission of important parts by the recording clerk, is receiving some modifications from the original text. The attention of advertisers is called to the fact that next Sunday edition of the Appeal, besides being of the usual mam moth proportion', will be one of ILe most interesting on account of the great quantity and unusually well selected reading matter. Mke up your lists of advertising so as to be ab'e t) hand them in early Saturday if you would secure a good place. Thk official report of the cotton exchange, yesterday, gives as the sales of cotton for the day teven thousand eight hundred bales. This is the largest sale for any one day on record, and when it is taken into account that one home bought crer three thousand bales, the rapid recovery of tho trade of Menipki will be more readily appreciated. The nfxt largest 6alo ever made in Memphis occurred on Decem ber 8, 1S7G, when seven thousand three hun dred bales were sold, one houo taking over two thousand bale. The Xational commercial convention, now sitting at New Orleans, mado up as its dele gations are of the profoundest commercial thinkers and workers in the land, promises a rich yield of benefits to the country's com meice, and especially that of the south, as is indiciid in the important topics presented during &e &r8t lw0 days session. Tho im provement f the Mississippi river, a south rn transcontinental railway, and our com mercial relations with foreign countries, are the matters of chietest concern, all of which schemes are eliciting much attention. This, from the Washington Capital, is tery correct in whole and in detail: "The representatives ?nt from the couth, sin&a the Republican rule of eurpet baggers and bayo nets has ended, are of cuch sort as to convince the ncj'rejudiced aaple ot the north that, if we are to judge of the tra by tne fruit, in accordant with Divino precept, the change has been most btiused and beau tiful. The gang of stupid, mercenir;' rogues has given place to fentlemen of ability anj .culture, and instead ot s'cAiae mantling the cWk of the ratriot at a roll-call of ignorant negec&i and low, dishonest whites upon the (floors of tonfcTesp, we Lave from end to end f the corniced country a representation of men who are lared by the Uepublican party, ot because of a solid south, but for that it is made up of the coarags, iulU?ct and honor which entitles it to leadership." The Raliegh (X. C.) Obserrer tells the slory about the "solid touth" plainly and unmistakably in tho following sentences; "Tlw iouth is solidly Democratic for two main nitons. First, because she sees the Democratic pirty to be the only national con stitutional party i ihe country; and, second, ffrom;motive8 of sell-prok'tijon. ltgardingthe first, oil the people of the whole Union know bat tbe main object of Radicalism h&t e er tieen sou '.her a oppression.

Hon. Alexander Stephen to-day, while ascending the atone steps leading to the house, on crutcnwrslipped and fell, causing a painful wrench of the knee, which will probably conSno him to his room f or some time. THE INDIAN BUKKAU TRANSFER and joint commission, huviDg under coosi'Ier atiou the proposition of transferring the In dian bureau to ths wjr iiepartment,m"t to day. The first witnet-s was Dr. A. C. Bars low, of f'rividino", Rhode Island, chairman of the board of Indian commissioners, and representing the Coogrppatorjal cha.cb. in ltc-balf of the education and conversion of the Indian race He tail in his judgment the proposed transfer was uuwise; that if effect ed it would certainly work adversely to chris tian operationi now in progress. He reit erated at length many interviews with army officers on the subject, and Eaid those favor ing the transfer appeared to hard but one reason therefor, uamely: That the war de partment paid better salaries for sanitary than did tho department of the interior. He thought it impossible for the body of Indian commissioners to work in harmony with the army officials as it did with civilians, and gave as his reason that the army was formed lor war to subdue enemies and retain pe ca rjther than promoto civilization, religion and friendship. In his opinion, in five years tiniP, under the supervision ol christian discipline, the entire Indian race could be civilized for onc-haif the amount of money which would necessarily be expected in the event of their beiug placed under the ruling of the war department, and under the former plan, in the time mentioned, be was sure the aid of the military to keep the Indians peace ful would be no more required than it is at the present time in our State. He considered there were somo very good men in the army, fcrt d?d not think them equal to the require ments cf ndiun agents, and wa? positive ;it tbey sra incpbls of promoting reli gion, ci7i''aation, ets, Y. M. Kingsley, ot New York, a fcieber of the board of Indian commissioners, and I representing t!a Presbyterian sfct, and also ! .ihairman of tha purchasing committee, was the next gsntletnau to pmsnt his views. Ho said we need an army R i'h h s ppp.des for Indians rather thai nffjii' anti rili-s. If the Indiaa commbs'o ! m U iiirsd, ha would pro luc3 the b join of u s o'W for every expendi'ure made by the board and whera j made, whera forwarded and what disposition was made ot the came. He defended the In dian aeents as a body, and cajd their whole sale abuse was unwarranted with reference to creation of contracts by the Indian bureau, j Ha said he did not accept the criticisms of the war department on the subject, and con sidered it "poor graca" for that department to otirtr it, considering the rascally contracts which passed through the hands of its oth cialj during the late war. Tue great mass ot tua tiilibu8 denominations throughout the country tarojai the continuation of the existing1 peace policy, gbould the transfer be made, tho bourd would rot CteJ ,tbat they had any active sympathy for the gooa oik 4cnj8 by the board, as they bad in many in staucej teen demoralized by the surrounding military poLi. o his own knowledgda there was no esisting oniagonip acting between the various religious denominator. The committee adjourned ur.til Friday next, when S ;creUry Scburi and Indian Com missioner Hoyt are expected to give their r;ews on the subject. Act tbe First. The Wasbmcton correspondent of the Cin cinnati Enquirer writes up tha first day of the i pretnt session of ,ccngivoc3 as follows: The 6cene attendant upon the orx-cijiiy of the senate were iunjt ejiougb, tliougb. ,enr Lanced by surroundings ot' uniiaatijn and beauty in the galleries suflicienl to stir up the somnoleiit buck3 who assuma dignity, wake Wad laws and draw regular pay, with bay rum and cork-screws thrown in. There were but few absenteen. Indeed, there would have been no incident worthy of record hal not tbe audacious and ever-crnfty llialne, of Hair.e, at the very SistIopportunity, thrown in a tia-brand. Business was proceeding in its quiet w&y when the announcement by the Vice-President, "THE SENATOR FROM MAIH4," a the signal for a craning of necka i by th8 occupanu the galleries. Almost instinc tively it was felt tat "Jeeins" was on his teet to pave the way for one of his crusades ainst the south, and the expectancy of both senators and the cpectators was not disap poiottd. "I cr," said he, "a resolution whichjl send to t ae Vice-President's desk to b teadj" and then a dapper youth with a good deal cf jaw, a jaw with only fa'.hiess for sound without intelligible pronunciation, read his proposition to appoint an investi gating committee, which, briijiy put, means an inquiry into the conduct of the recent elec tions in the south. TAKING SNAP JUDGMENT. The surprise Blaine's movement ma le was not bc;s of the fact that such a resolution bar? not btow contemplated, but that he should offer it. KepWfali.op.n senators who have the buzz of the Pres:d'?ntiii bej ja their honnc- ns much as he saw at once that Blaine Lai intercepted the plan of others, and bad placed luiuself in a position to not only open a sectional defcuio, b'lt to actually lead it. So the Eenate, alter it leading:, de cided that it should lay over for a day, and took a recess to get breath and wait for the message. The reading of the document fol lowed, and the senate adjourned, PLAINE'a LITTLE GAME. To the layman plaice's move looks harm less enough; but to tne frciitjjiau quite the reverse. The desire of the planted anight is tl;-t the Democrats will resist its package, and, u so. then a political, acrimonious and lengthened ' aufc3;on is inevitable. With such a debate Blaine as ii.e central figure expects to arouse the loyal ire ot th nortb, and repeat in the senate the scenes whtcn took place in tho Lojse when, under circum stances not unlike those to-day, he entan gled Ben Hill and others into a defense ot the south through the amnesty debate, If the Democrats allow the bill to pass without debate, Blaine's present opportunity j3 jost. lo-morrow will dtcide. The outlook, tboij.b, is that they will not. THE HOC8E gDt to work asa uaUttilly as though there uau oniy ireen a recess or a iiw rJiiva inarrmi of several months. The atteuiianc oa be pert of members was not as large as U3ual, as o&ly .two hundred and twenty-nine an swered to their names. Among tbe most prominent abtnL:e were Butler and Lonng, of Massachusetts; Swans, of Maryland; poutzlass and Walker, of Virginia; Teases, of North Carolina; Gardner and DicEey, of Ohio; Cailisl, of Kentucky; Hanna, of In diana; Bland, of Missouri; and Bragg, of Wisconsin. After calling the roll, swearing in two new members Bailey, of New "York, and Majors, of Nebraska, who had been elected to fill vacancies and appointing the usual committee to call upon the rresidant, the house took a recess until the message was reCLiveit. The appointment of S. S. Ox as one of the committee excited some reniarir, and some members thought Speaker Randall should haffeelected some one else, in viwof the tact that Uox was tne only representative who had cnlled the President a fraud troro the floor of the house. They did manage, however, to SPRING A POLITICAL DEBATE, but it was inaugurated by the Democrats instead ( f by the Republicans, as was ex pected. The only thing in the President's message that attracted much attention was what be said about elections in South Caro lina and Mississippi. When Ferr.undo Wood moved to refer the message to the committee of the whole, he took occasion to express regret that the President had said what he did about the southern elections, be cause it was at variance with his purpose, as declared in bis inaugural address, it seemed to bim that the President was vacillating, and that he was about to throw himself into the arms of the stalwarts, and raise; again the bloody shirt. While the President could see what he supposed to be wrong in the south, he was blind to what occurred in the nortb, especially in New York City. GARFIELD, AS A MATTER OF COURSE, rose to defend the President, and applauded him for calling attention to those matters, ind twitted Wood with the reduction ot his majority in New York. Of course Eutrcne Hale had to have something to say. He is never backward, and as this is his last session he will want to have his name appear on every page of the Congressional Record. He, too, commended the President for what he hid done, and denied that he was throw ing himself into tbe arm3 of the Republicans. It was simply a matter of duty, and the whole country, he argued, would demand that every constitutional right of every citizen be en forced in every State. TniS WAY, MR. MERRIMAN. Cox, of New York, closed the discussion, and made a good deal of fun at the expense of Hale. As an off set to what the President said were wrongs in South Carolina and other southern States, Cox called attention to what was done in New York by Johnny Davenport under the supervisor law. It is not supposed that Democrats will make any serious objection to a full investigation of tbe allegations in that partcf the President's message; bat they will couple with it an in vestigation of the elections in New York, Cincinnati and in every other city where the machinery of supervisors was put in o Dera tion, in order to fully show the workings of that measure. TWO APPROPRIATION BILLS were reported to-day: The military academy bill by Mr. Durham, and the fortification bill by Mr. Baker. The latter appropriates two hundred and 6eventy-five thousand dollars, which is the same amount as given in the bill in the current fiscal year; and the military academy bill recommends the sum of two hundred and seventv-six thousand six hun dred and forty-seven dollirs, which is six thousaad one hundred and fifty-eight dollars less than the amount appropriated in the List bill, or hftv-eifirht thousand one bnndred and sixty-eight dollars less than the estimate sub mitted by the department. Durham gave notice that he would call tbj bill up for ac tion to-morrow. ARMY REORGANIZATION, The army commission, composed of mem bers of the senate and house, which has been holding its sessions during the congres sional recess, investigating the subject of re organization of the army, holds its final meeting Saturday next, to agree upon a re Dort. It is said that while a bill tor a thor ough reorganization will be presented, it will involve but few reductions in tbe present force of officers. THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE disappoints both Republicans and Democrats; the former because, while they thins that he is willing to use every effort to punish the al leged offenders against a free and fair elec tion in the south, they had hoped his lan guage would have been more forcible; and the latter because it is as forcible as it is. Its reading attracted bat little attention in either houss, and the only decided expression which was evoked was in the house, when that por tion of an extract from Secretary M'Crary's report was read, recommending the repeal of the posse comitatus law in its application to the army. It provoked quite a smile on the Democratic side, and sneers as well. As a State document it is considered quite com monplace. It has been discounted by the cross from this place a month ago in all its 8sontiil points, and for that reason falls quite hat. j t is regarded in tone as about an tno R-publicahs had & riht to expect, and less than the Democrats, or many of them did ei cect. Those who defend it say that its weakness is not eo much the fact that its commonplace pfeb-.6ji:t;n cf the condition ot the country makes it. a weak 'ta,te DADer. as the fact that the condition of the cpunpry o'ered no op portunity to make it a stronger oha." t is considered conservative enough, even to com monplace, the Republicans do not regard it as a document which will aid them politi cally, nor the Democrats one which their po liticit adversaries can get much comfort out of. Jta principal criticism is that it lacks statesmanship, makes po recf.mmendatios which will attract tha country, suggests no legislation for the relief of tha Tjurdened people, ana is not assuring in us general character. WHAT THE GREAT STATESMEN SAY OF IT. To give a fair idea of the feeling it has produced here, the following laconic expres- ot members serve to show: WobaYwf 4,ecna"lvania Fine essay on tho prosperity of the agMCuhyqral department. Entertaining disquisition on l.-.'dian affairs and other subjects, perhaps of importance, which don t strike one. . Senator Kellogg Haven't read it. f.'hapuiiin Freeman, of Pennsylvania Too long: too general, UtO peat:; and if he had anything to write about Lp toi;idn.'t have known how. Lathrop, of Illinois It's all right. Fact is, since last election things have no quieted down that the people don't care much what the President says. John Goode One of the weakest State pa pers ever issued from an executive. Jlerr Stnitii, of Pennsylvania It should baye been made' stronger on tha southern outrage queiUofl. " ' -. Casweil, of Wisponsinw-It will bave a good effect in making pecpta tbipk, especially on the southern question. Fernando Wood expresses the same opin ion in private that he did on the floor, that there is nothing important in it except the southern question. Other members agree that this is the only point which will com mand much attention. Knott, of Kentucky The whole paper is a discedit to tho administration. Cannot think Ilia cabinet had much to do with it, for it would then have t3en uore rnsrked. Schleicher, of Texas it's a i'iir aobumeit, because there is at this time very little that could be put into a message to make a strong impression. Congress should take notice of the suggestions as to the south and investi gate. Harry White, who is one of the stalwarts, preferred stronger talk, but on the whole likes it. Singleton, referring to tea iouthern part, says he wants the allegations fully inquired into, and it will be shown that no dishonor attaches to Mississippi at ld&st. Blount, of Georgia Congress wijl not pay much attention to any suggestions in the message. Bliss, of New York, and Crittenden of the same State, are well pleased with the finan cial part. Rice, of Gh;o Very weak; very thin. General Banning Lacks ptatesmarship; makes no prominent or salutary suggestions. Senator Blaine Better than I expected, in improvement on the last message. benator ; ocrhees Don t liae it. lias no reading about it. Mr. Whittfaorpe Jt is a good abstract of the d pattment report. Powers, of Maine It's a fair document. Mr. Eden There is not a suggestion worth considering. Siemens, of Aikansas Milk and wafer, and ddyiiisa IjUte substance in the milk. Jaaieo, of New York, Brigga, cf New Hampshire, and Patterson, ot New York, heartily indorse the whole document. Pound, f Wisconsin, likes it. Harris, of Virginia, will have to read it before expressing an opinion. Cannon, of Illinois It's a fair document. Conger It will make a good impression cn the country. Covert, of New York Nothipg Jn it. Veeder, of New York Don't amount to much. Ballou It had the right ring, especially on tbe southern question. Fo3ter, of Ohio A clear and well-meaning document. Conkling Haven't yet thought much abiuit it. Hendee, of Vermont Better than I had reason to epett, M'Mahon Means a good deal more tc&d it says on thn southern question. Sayler A conservative attempt at political C&ri.t! fr tbo Republican party. Fuller, of J&diaaa Commonplace, ordinary departmental report. A!ex..SteDhens A fair' message, ait the President undersands the southern question MR. POTTER'S COMMITTEE. The Democratic meni'ers of the Totter in vestigating committee met to-day and agreed to call a meeting of the foil committee on Thursday next, wh'-n Whitelaw Reid and Mr. Hazzard. of tho New York Tribune, will be called to testify as to the authenticity of the cipher telegrams. SILVER Tn READS. Senator Beck said to-night that he expected that the bill onered by him m the senate to day to provide for restoring the trade-dollar. and for its recoinase into tho standard silver dollar, would be passed by the senate before the middle of February. COVE&SOH HAMPTON. Private advices from South Carolina a3 lato as Saturday, received here yesterday. report Governor Himptoa to le in a very critical condition in c- nsr quence ot his ie cent very revere accident. The death of Governor Hampton at this time would be a severe shock to his many friends, as well as an irreparable loss to South Carolina. THE DEMOCRATIC SENATORS will hold a caucus to-morrow morning for the purpose ot deciding what course they will take in reference to Blaine's resolution. Senator Thurinan and other northern sena tors are in favor of debating tbe resolution and defeating it, if possible; while the south ern senators favor the passage of tho resolu tion, amended so as to include certain north em cities and districts where intimidation and fraud are alleged to have been practiced A SHOCKIXC TRAGEDY. Particulars of a Terrible Murder and Suicide in Mieblsau. Special to the Enquirer. 1 Allegan. Mich.. December 2. The fol lowing particulars of the Stoddard tragedy, teiegrapnea Saturday, nave just been re ceived. Josiah C. Stoddard, a farmer nearly sixty years old, residing in fine 1lains town ship, Allegan county, rose some time Friday night, dressed himself, struck a light, built a fire, cast bullets on the stove-hearth, cut patches, loaded his rifle, and shot bis invalid wife and his three-year-old daughter Mert e, both being asleep, blowing out their brains. He then seated hiuiselt in a chair, and held the muzzle of bis rifli to his head with one hand, while with the other he pushed the trigger with the ramroad, and blew his uwn brains out. At daylight a neighbor's boy discovered the bodies, and aroused the neigh borhood. Stoddard's body, just as it was found, was thrown into a box and put into a nole at the toot ci a tree on bis farm, sun- day his victims received christian rites of sspulcber in the cemetery. Stoddard former ly lived near Uoldwater, Michigan, where he now has a divorced wife and two sons, whom he separated irom twelve years ago. He came to this county from Nebraska four years ago with a housekeeper named Laylor, by whom he bad two girls, the youngest be ing Mertie, whom be killed. Tbo woman is now living in Kmmett county with an elder daughter. The murdered wife married him in good faith, and wa3 an estimable woman. Stoddard was vicious, morose, and at times despondent. The Virginia Legislature in Menelon. Richmond, December 4. The legislature met at noon to-day. A joint committee was appointed to inquire into the legality of the session. A resolution was adopted request ing the governor to communicate to the senate all the information he has in relation to the recent action of Judge Rivers, of the United States district court for the western district of Virginia, in removing from the custody of tha State officials certain persons held for trial for murder, and in no wise purporting to try the said persons in said Federal courts for said crimes against the State laws, which proceeding is considered an enforcement of police regulations, and the assumption and control of domestic affairs of the State by Federal officers. Ihe governor s message is almost entirely devoted to a discussion of tbe State debt. The governor sai s: "No excuse for the non payment ot the debt can ever be urged, save that of inability. Thero are the oaly two ways open for honorable settlement; that is by the increase of taxation or fair and friendly adjustment with the creditors. Repudiation or forcible readjustment would bring ruin; but increased taxation, though it might cause suffering and privation for a time, would ultimately bring prosperity and peace' Turkish Affaire, . . , Constantinople, December 4.

The decree also an nounces that projected reforms will shortly be promulgated. Everythins Qaiet at East St. Loalg. St. Louis, December 4. Nothing exciting occurred in East St. Louis to-day. Mayor liowmjn bas made charges against City Mar shal Carpenter and his assistants jcr unlaw fully assaulting him in his office, and eject ing him therefrom. Mr. Franz, Bowman's city clerk, and Walsh, his deputy-marshal, will do likewise. Bowman still has several books in his possession which are claimed by the'eity council, and eait was entered to-dey before Judge Watts, of the circuit couvt, at Belleville, to regain them. It is also said that Bowman will again be charged with contempt of court in violating the injunction issued by Judge Watts some weeks ago, and for which he was fined two hundred and fifty dollars. Both parties assert that they will not resort to violence, but will settle all their difficulties through the courts. Tbe Obtp"JUentis(8. CmLUMbus, December 4. The State dental convention, in session here, spent most of the day considering the charges made that they had exceeded the power of the Stata law al lowing them to examine and issue diplomas to dentists, inasmuch as the society had dele gated this power to a State board or an ex amining committee. After a lengthy discus sion a resolution was adopted fully indorsing the action of the examining board and de claring that the society had not exceeded its legal poye-s, gnd verv severely censuring Dr. J. H. 7 arner, one of their members resi dent here, tor his alleged attempts 'to injure the society by claiming that their acts bad been illegal and their charges for diplomas excessive.
