MEETING OF THE DEMOCRATIC CAUCUS COM MITTKF03. The committees of the house aud senate Democratic caucus, to make recommenda tions concerning the ordpr of business for the extra session, held a joint meetiiiif to-day, lasting fire and a half hours, Senator Thur man presiding. The first question discussed was whether the political legislation desired by the dominant party :n conre.; should be effected by the passage of a separate meas ure, or by the incorporation of repealing clauses iu the appropriation bills. It was determined, after so.ne discussiou, by a vote of 13 yeas against 5 nays (fhe latter being two senators and three representative), that the l itter course would be most expedient, especially for the reason that it seemed likely to save time, there being a cent ral desire to finish the necessary business ot the session as early as possible. The next question considered was whether the political portions of th:! appropriation bills should now bo passed ou the same terms in which they were passed at the last session, or whether the rep-aling clauses in regard to the Fed-.ral election laws should ba modifie i so at to rep.-al on'y tao-e sectious which authouzs tin ap, ointment cf supervisors and deputy mar iials for elections, together with the sections c -nterriDg polite powers on supervisors, thus continuing the auVhciciation of the appointment of two supervisors of diSercct politics to seive in testimonial capacity at each poll as witnesses to the count cf the vole. After an exhaustive discussion it was decided to re commend the adoption of the modified proposition. The vote was fourteen against tour two senators and two representatives favoring a total repeal. The joint n.eetirg then authorized Sena tors Tburman, Saulsbury, Bailey and Ker nan, and Representatives Chalmers, Spring er, Carlisle and Atkins, to formulate the (re visions in accordance with the decision in re gard to the election laws, and also the pro visions for the total repeal of the jurors' test oath, and the existing authorization of the presence of troops at the polls, for incor poration into the legislative, t secutive and judicial and uriuy appropriation bills, to gether with such additional provisions as they may deem necessary to secure free and fair elections lor representatives and dele gates to congress. They are also especially authorized to considt r the propriety ot fram ing a substit-ta for section 6522 of the re vised statutes, which prescribes the penalties for violations of the election laws. Mr. Springer's proposition to provide, in addition to tne repeal of the law requiring the presence of troops at the polls, lor the enactment of an existing English statute of George III on that su5 ject, was very favora bly rtcaived, and the joint committee will probably recommend its adoption. It pro hibits any soldi r stationed within two miles of the voting place from leaving his quarters on election day except to relievs the guard or to vjte, and requiring him in the latter case to return to his quarters immediately aiter ward. J'he joint sub committee will meet on Monday, and expects to report to the caucus committee on Tuesday. The j:iint meeting will also consider whether the legislation oi the present session should be strictly confined to the appropriation bills, including the measures above indicated, or whether gen eral business should not be transacted by either houae when not engnged on the ap propriation bills. A decided majority fa vored restriction to the appiopriation bills and the enactment of what is known as the "Yellow fever bill." A small majority of the house committee insisted tha: the opportunities for transact ing general business should be improved, without, however, prolonging tho session al ter the appropriation bills shall have been disposed of. It was finally decided to report a disagreement on this subject to the joint caucus, and leave the settlement to a majori ty ot the Democratic members of both houses. LIMITING LEGISLATION. Baltimore Sun: "The hint to congress the President throws out in the message to confine the business to the necessary appro priations meets with a very cordial response all around. There seems absolutely no dis position among the members of either party to olunge into general legislation, and the largo number ot bills introduced in the sen ate to-day is co indication to the contrary. These bills were rei'.rred to the appropriate committees, where, perhaps r ith the fewest exceptions, they will sleep tilt next winter It is understood that as matters stanrt now Speaker Handall will make no announcement of standing committees until the session is to be terminated, not even the committee on ap- DroDriations. It is held to be entirely practica ble to reintroduce the two appropriation bills which failed of passage at its last session, but which were fully matured, and which do cot, therefore, need to go through the hands ot bl tOKOittee. Of course the Democrats mean to insi.l ss to the repeal ol the political legislation which wa eji-rstted on those bill, but it is to be expected that on ti:? they will be willing to abate pome thing. Reading D.'uucraU of both houses havs ccu!?nrred in the c'eclarat'on that they will be at:sf!ei to reta n iii provision in the election laws for the ap pointment ct supeivisors ot election n tne authority for the appointment of deputy marshxls with the power to arrest is struck oat. There is reasonable hope that this Cjinproriiis will not be strenuously resisted by theji 'publicans io the two bouses, and that at all events the President would not veto the appropriation bill if the repeal is put into this saape. As to the repeal of the jurors' test oath, and the insertion of the clausj forbidding the presence of troops at the polls, it is well understood that ;iO UotbIo ia apprehended, as the Republicans do not care to rtake any bitter fiyht on these two points. The home Lemocrati- caucus will to-morrow, perhaps, dcliuiiely iott!e the programme. Under this condition ot cir caoiiitiacea the prospect for an extended ses sion of conareoj is by no means so alarming as it has been. Howeve.-, it is too soon to be tmjn. THE C-AE OF MINISTER SEWARD. The house committee on the judiciary made a report just before the adjournment t.f the forty-filth congress, cn the contempt cnae of George F. Seward, the United States minister to China. Mr. Seward, as will be remembered, was summoned as a witness beforo the house committee on expenditures in the state department 1 he committee de-macdc-1 the production of certain books kept by Mr. a iyrs.d while United States cmsul- gener.tl in Ch'r.i TM committee had evi dence to the eti'ect tiiiit ciicuj Jooks were the public records of the ccn-u'ate, aud iierefoie Lhe property of the government. Mr. Sew aru diizred that they were books in which he kept hU goc.Tental and his private transactions, and that he ijau TCtjrned to the state department or left in the consulate all the books of the United States. Mr. Seward declined to produce the books, and also declined to be sworn as a witness as crime was alleged against him, and his counsel advised him that he was not obliged to produce evidence criminating hinieell. The committee therefore reported him to the bouse for contempt, and the legal questions involved were submitted to the committee on the judiciary. Thi. wai in the last hours of the session, and as the power of the bouse to bold a wit nec3 for contempt expired when the session closed, the question was of lit tle practical importance. The report of the judiciary committee allud?a to this fact, and premises that the question was ot so much grarity as a precedent involving tbs constitu- tional rights of the citizen as to merit a much mom extended investigation than as possi ble to give it in the time before the adjourn ment. The judiciary committee then pro ceed to state that, in their opinion. Mr. Seward could not constitutionally be com pelled to produce the books, and they say turther that, even if he had poM'ssed hiinsplf of public records which contained evidence to accuse him of rrime, it would be doubtful whether a committee of congress had the right to call upon him to produce them. The committee hold that in th cae of public books embezzled or stolen, a xuhpena duces tecum is not the remedy of the government, but that they might be gotten out of his hands by a writ of replevin or other proper process. The committee, after a further dis cussion tf the cae, repoit that, in their opinion, Mr. Seward was not in contempt of the authority of the house in refusing to be sworn as a witness or in refusing to produce his books before the committee on expendi tures of the state department.

Nashville American: '"The sad siTair at Marshall, iu which Porter lost his lite and Barrymore received severe wounds, is the latest instance of Texas ruffianism. It has been only a few weeks since a sheriff, being rei'jsed sdmission to the theater by Mr. John Edward?, waited hi; opportunity and At tacked that gentleman, who, thanks to his muscular development, was too much for the belligerent official and gave him a sound pommeling. Mr. Edwards jhad to take a hurried departure from town, but, to Texan fairness be it said, the sheriff's own friends helped him away. A Texas man, after ex hibiting Lis resplendent six-shooter beauties to a theatrical aent, asked to see the latter's weapons, and was greatly surprised when the agent drew from his rear pocket a for midable punch, remarking that that was the only weapon he need-id in the States. Such instances as the above, and from accounts they are plentiful, have given managers the serious idea of abandoning Texas for a while. They say they can venture their money, but have to stop when it comes to putting life in the taiacce.

In the debate in the German reichstag 1-tst night on Herr Schnei- gaa's motion for the establishment of an autonomous government in Alsace and Lor raine, Schneigan pointed out that Bismarck was the responsible raimster at present UeichlanJ lived too far away and the people were exposed to countless grievances from the complex Lureauistic system now preva lent. The presence of the lord-lieutenant and secretary of slate did not divest Bis marck of the responsibility, and offisial tric- tion is contiunal. They wanted the right man in the right plac1; under the present ssteru they did net teel themselves citizens of a well ordered State, but of an occupied country. Give them but independence and th-y would not become a bone of contention, but bonds of union between two civilized people, thn bridge by which the benefits of bath might be exchanged, and the means of international reconciliation. Bismarck in his reply said the remarks of Schnjigan made a favorable impression upon him, which would have been better had not his perora tion contained an appeal to Paris which could find no echo in Berlin, and the appeal which pictured Alsace and Lorraine as a neutral territory to which the claims of France would be as justifiable as those of Germany. I only state what I have interceded; pulled down by tho French and now propped op by Ger many, it would regain its strength. Let us see that it does, The speech was loudly ap- piauueo.

If the legislature wants to do good and settle the State debt, let them have thousands of copies of this speech printed and distributed among the people ot lemes- see, it win do more good toward settling the question than millions of such messagt s as Mai-ks's. Now, gentlemen, if you want the matter settled, give the public printer a job, and then submit a iair proposition to the people. Nashville Banner: "The action of the caucus, yesterday, in nominating Colonel burch to the important position ot secretary of the senate brings him prominently belore the people of the United States, and Tennes see must feel herself honored in having this officer chosen from her borders. He has been a citizen of the State for so long, and is so thoroughly identified with her interests, that almost every one supposes him to be a native Tennessean. Yet such is not the fact, as he was born in Georgia tibout 1826, thus being about fifty-three years of age. He came to Tennessee after having graduated with honor at Yale college, and settled in Chattanooga, where he pursued the practice ot law until he was elected a senator from that district. He had made a very considerable reputation as a political speaker, havinir met the cham pions ot VV higgery on every side in his sec tion, and consequently was at once recog nized ps a leader. He was elected as speaker ot the senate of 1855-5. As a presiding of ficer be was ao popular that he received com mendations from all sides, and at the desth of Messrs. Poindexter and Eastman he was called to the editorial chair of the o'd Union and American. He here continued to win golden opinions from all sides. Before his conneetion with the Union and American began, fights and bloodshed were of fre quent occurrence, so that to edit any, but especially that, paper was no sinecure. Yet by his courteous style and bis urbane conduct, he soon taught his cotempo raries that brute force could not settle a ques tion of principle, and there has been at no time since any difficulty with his neighbors. His prominent position in politics precluded the possibility of a residence here during the war, so the paper stopped, and he went south. After the war he practiced law until September, 16569, when he resumed his con nection with the Union and American, and continued it until its union with the Republi can Banner, and he still remains president of the united companies. In 1874 he was ap pointed comptroller of the treasury, where he gave the most complete satisfaction. No man could occupy the very prominent posi tion that Colonel Burch has without incur ring many and bitter enemies. Where men differ so essentially in matters of principle and p olicy, these differences often beget a personal hostility urjjustifiai by any peronal action. Of thse matters we have noth ing to say. Where he has made enemies he has also made friends. He is a warm hearted, sincere friend, never tiring in friend ly offices, and has a magnetism about him that attracts everyone with whom he comes in personal contact. His courteous, dignfied bearing and refinement of manners eminently qualify him for the position to be held, where he must come in contact with the most exalted men of this and other nations. At the same time, he is a walking political cyclo pedia, a matter of no little convenience to the forgetful senator." Deatlny. " Where are therRolruj?"
