The caucus of .he Democratic senators to day was almost wholly in favor of providing for a repeal of the test oath in the maunuc indicated at the joint Democratic caucus on Monday night. Whether it would be pro per to attach the proposition referring to tha drawing of jurors, and an amendment for a repeal of the election law to the appopnation bill, were very generally discussed, and the prevailing opinion was opposed to such ac tion. COMMERCIAL TELEGRAPH LINES. The senate committee ou railroads to-day heard further arguments concerning the bill to authorize railroad companies to construct and maintain telegraph lines for commercial purposes. APPOINTMENTS. The President nominated Koratio C. Bur chard, of Illinois, director of tho mint, vice Iiinderman, deceased. A COLORED MAN IN THE VICE-PKESIDENT'b SEAT. Senator Bruce was called to the chair to day, and presided over the senate a portion of the aftc.noon. This is the first time in the history ot the government that a colored man has occupied the chair. PROPOSED MODIFICATION OF TIIF PENSION LAWS. The commissioner of pensions has sug gested changes in the arrears of pensions law, saying it is difficult ot construction, and recommending that provision be made for the grading of pensions, by which ten million dollars can be saved. A sub-committee has been appointed to prepare the required legis lation. CONGRESSIONAL PROCEEDINGS. The senate was occupied most of the day discussing the bill to restrict Chinese immi gration, no vote being reached. A considerable breeze was raised in the house over the proposition to appoint James Shields, cf Missouri, to a brigadier-generalship in lieu of the pension ha now received. Representative Franklin charged the Republican members with not having been in earnest last yar iu the efforts for the ap r ointment of General Shields as doorkeeper. To this. Representative Whiti said, tbe Democrats were welcome to make all party cjpital they wanted or.t of his ac tion, he was willing to take all the re sponsibility that members of congress should tdie for doing his duty. The coufusiou was so great that Mr. Bridges inquired whether this was a town meeting or the house of rep lesentatives. Finally the bill was referred to the committee ot the whole. The re mainder of the session of the house was con sumed in discussing war claims, et id omne, during which much confusion resulted. No action was had. AS TO AN EXTRA SESSION. Washington specials to Cincinnati En quirer, 13th: The solution of tbe problem of an extra seasicn is very much like the 'Jack-in-a-boi" now you see it and now you don't. Monday night it Beemed certain that an extra session waa inevitable. To day there is a very large doubt. The cause of it is the ssntiinent of the Republican sena tors, who, with five cr six exceptions, are de cidedly opposed to an extra session. The senators almost unanimously a&rree with Bayard, that the Democracy cannot afford to indulge in any irregular and unwise methods, even to get rid ot obnoxious laws, especially since in the ordinary course of events they can be repealed before they can accomplish any further harm. Thurman seems to want an extra session.and so does Sergeant-at- Arms Thompson, and so does Speaker Randall, ap parently, and so do the raft of applicants tor the senate cilices, but the senators them selves are wintr, and criticise pretty severely what they are pleased to term the wild zeal of the house Democrats. Wallace is strong ly oppobed to an extra session, and so is Ben Hill, and so are a majority ot the southern senators. As one ot them said very aptly to day: "We can't afford to carry any extra load in 10. We shall need to b - foot free." Speaking on the same subject General Ran som who is a thorough southern man, a representative man of bis section, and as close to the hearts of his people as any mem ber of either houae said to-day: '"The south must not only be right, but it must seem right." Then he added with his char acteristic earnestness: "And our people are right. They are patriotic, and that man mistakes them altogether who thick) they an in favor of petty locul legislation. These ho love Washington, and who almost wcr ship the memory of Robert E. Ler,have been educated to follow great leaders. They ad mire broad statesmanship, and will not sup port cr follow any man who ttoops to do lit tle things. Of course, " he went on, "I am oppooed to the test oath law and tbe super visors' laws, and tho other unccnsfitutional and elcc'.ion law. They are all wrong, and our people have suffered terribly from them; but it is betttr for us to en tare a iittl longer, than it is for us to do a bad thing for our selves; and I know that the southern people feel as I do on this subject." Ben Hill, be ing a more radical uaau, naturally expresses himself more radically in opposition to n extra stsaon forced by the Democrats. A SIGNIFICANT LITILEStEXE occurred to-day in one of tbe corridors cf ihe capitol. Dr. Norvin Green, president of the Western Union telegraph company, was standing near one of theentraoces to the ball of jepresentativea, talking with a friend, when Speaker Randall came out, and the two were introduced, "I am very glad, indeed, to make your acquaintance," said the speaker "for we are both old Democrats." "yes," replied Mr. Green, "we are both old Demo crats; but I am sorry to see that you don't practice true Democracy down here. You do not respect the rights of State or corporations." The speaker was taken aback for a moment, but rallied quickly, and retorted: "If you refer to General tiutler s amendment to the army bill authoriilnif raiirc'l companies to own and operate telegraph lines, I am free to say that, had I been on the floor the other day pben it was up, instead of in the chair. I BhoulJ certainly have voted for it, as I con sider it a wi Mid prooer measure. the i resident of the Western Union company made tne bet or it, but evidently realiz-d that the conference committee, to which the measure in question wonld ultimately go, would be appointed by Speaker Randall.

At a meeting of the Liverpool health committee yesterday the town clerk stated that the recent order of the privy council would entirely prevent the shipment cf live stock from tbe United States to Liverpool, because Liverpool is not registered as a foreign animal wharf. The onlv ports registered are London, Grimsby, Hull, Hartlepool, Newcastle, Plymouth and Sunderland. The committee decided to ad dress a letter to the privy council, calling at tention to the disastrous effects ot the order on the port of Liverpool and the population of Lancashire and Yorkshire, and expressing the bupe that arrangements now making by the Liverpool dockyard board may lead the privy council, before the third of March, to define a part of the port of Liverpool where foreign animals may be landed, THE SUBJECT DISCUSSED IN THE HOUSB OV COIIMONS. London, February 14. In tho houoo oi commons to day. Lord George F. Hamilton, vice-president of the council, in reply to in quiries, sai i that the council had ordered the slaughter of the American cattle because some time ago the council was informed of a rrevalence ot disease among the cattle in the United States. Among the sources of infor mation was a message from President Hayes. Canada was not included in the prohibition, because there was no disease there. He ex pected that by the third of March the neces sary arrangements for slaughtering would be J completed at Laverpool and elsewhere. Tbe Rich Calilorniu Banker.

Herald, 7th: "During last fail, while Mr. Champagne, of Nelson street was bringing in vegetables out of his garden he discovered what appeared to be a green, caterpillar clinging to a cucumber. He threw it away, but one of his children took it in secret, and placed it in the family clock. Some weeks afterward it was discovered en circled by a silken web of his own makiner, and one of Mr. Champagne's children in closed it in a warm covering of wool. Nothing of interest occurred until a few days ago, when Mrs. Champagne, who had forgotten ail about the insect, opened the clock to wind it up as usual.

SENATOR 2IATHEWH Explains his Kelatleag with James li. Anderson, Denying the Lntter'd Statement in'Xeicard to Himself. Washington. F. I r iarv 14. The senati select committee tiroointed at ths instance c Senator Mathews h;iva made public his testi mony concerning the allegations of James E Anderson, senator Matcews. alter denying tne statements ot Anderson concerning him self, said: "What I desire more distinctly to have understood arj the reasons that actuated me in continuing tne correspondence wi him, and continuing to manifest any interest in mm, after this conduct on hi part toward myself, which, in respect to his dispatch of June i, loll, was insulting. My first reason was my anxiety, considering his disappoint ment iu not succeeding in getting through me what he thought he ought to have got, to not give him any excuse in his own mind for believing that I had not acted m entire good faith in carrying out the original ex pressions of my desira communicated to him in my first conversation, to do soraethins for him. I had said that to him under circum stances which I have stilted. I excused his own conduct tow; r i rayseif, as perhaps nat ural to a man who had an intense desiro to accomplish his object. Perhaps he was very needy, as I sup posed he was, and who might suppose that I, like others whom he had charged, was only giving him words of promise with out seeking to do anything to make them good, and I waa anxious and sensitive that he should have no excuse to charge me witb any bad faith. My other reason was mv desire that the papers which were in mv custodv under the circumstances which I have stated (meaningjby the papers the Nash agreement and the Anderson-Weber agreement) should not be mde public. I confeas that I thought it was best that they should not bo. I saw no reason for making them public in refer ence to any public interest involved, and I did not think it would do any good. I could not imagine any good they would subserve. with my opinion as to their character, and 1 believe they might be made instruments of mischief and harm by propagating, and to some extent confirming in the popular mind a belief in what I believed to be a false and injurious scandal ia reference to the whole matter to which they related, and the two considerations together induced me to toler ate with him up to the point which I have described, and the conduct which the corre spondence manifests as dislayed by him."
