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
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
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. Jf things ate not changed, ev

The Autonomy of Alsace and Iiorralne.
Berlin, March 22. 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

Clarksville Tobacco-Leaf: "Senator
Clapp, of Memphis, the author of the minor
ity reuort ot the investigating committee, is
the coming man of Tennessee, He made a
speech the other day in the legislature which
nas something like the old statesmanship
characteristic of Tennessee's great men be"
fore these days of intngumg tohticians and
howling repudiators. 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
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
