BOTH. WINGS OF THE SENATE IN CAUCUS. The Democrats and Republicans of the sen ate each had a caucus this forenoon, and both adjourned, without decision, to meet sgain in the afternoon. The Democrats con sidered the question of taking action on Mr. Coke's resolution t discharge the finance committee from the silver bill. The Repub lican senators discussed the various suggested courses upon the army and judicial appropri ation bill. The DKiuouratie caucus appointed a committee to confer with the members of the finance committee and report to another cauctio (cot later than Monday) what course of Bt-tion can bo agreed upon with reference to the silver bill.

When the hour for tho commencement of the senate session arrived, the members be ing still in caucus, not a single senator was present except the president pro tern.

OUR INTERESTS IS JSTHMEAN TRANSIT. The following message from the President, accompanied by the report of the secretary of state, was laid before thc house previous to sojournment to-day: T o' the House ot Representatives: I transmit herewith, ia compliance with house resolution of the twenty-ninth ultimo, the report of tho secretaty of state relative to the steps taken by this government to pro mote the establishment of an interocennic canal across or near the Isthmus of Darien. K. B. HAYES. WiamNfiTfWj. June 13. 1878. The report of the secretary of state, after reviewing ine wuoie suojecc, r?iernu w mo sendinc of commissioners to take part in the isteroceanic congress at Pans, says: "The policy of tha United States on the general subjact of the lsihmean tranBit is understood to havo beea and to ba not to undertake the construction of a canal on its own account, even if the practicability ot such a work at a r"nior.jri'a coot were to be shown, but to se cure by U'evti':3 protection to the capital of such citizens iu muy bo ditiposed t3 embark id such enterprise.

Two iullv attended sessions of the caucua of the Republican in a tors were held today the first in the morning and tha other after the adjoninment of tho senate. Both were devoted to an interchange of views concern ing tbe proper course of action to bo. taken in regard to tue appropriation bills, and at tbe latter an important nereeruent was reached. Speeches of considerable length and uiuch earnestness were made by Sena tors Conkling, Uoar and Blaine, and the views of almost all the other members were indicated by brief remarks of an informal character. . Finally, it was agreed with substantial unanimity that the passage of the army appropriation bill in its present terms should ba opposed by the Republican party ia th; senate, unless the majority consent to the addition of a proviso to the sixth section, declaring that it shall not be construed to prevent the use of troops to execute any existing law. This determina tion c-as arrived at in consequence of doubts very genet ally expressed in the caucus as to whether the enactment of this sec tion would not eltogethcr pre vent the use ' of troops for the enforcement of any law on election days in tiaio of peace, it being held by many of tbe lawyers present that any use of the army, except against armed enemies, would neces sarily bo lor police purposes. It was also based upon the broad principle, to which every member assented, that it is the duty of con gress to make an appropriation in accord ance with tha existing laws. The point was also raised against tho sixth section of this bill that it infringed upon tha Presi dent's constitutional power as commander in chief of tho army. The judicial expciii.es bill was discussed very briefly, bat it aUo containR clauses in tha nature of the condi tions precedent to the use of tha cjoney which it appropriates. The caucus agreed with abccljite unanimity that its pasa;,o should likewia la opposed, unless these conditions ate ebminaoa. Tue Democratic members of the fcennte as sembled in caucus this morning, n response to a call issued at the instance of friends of the Warner silver bill, and designed to etlect some arrangement, if possible, far action UDon that measure. A new matter for con sideration, however, was rresnted by a tender, on tha part of Senator Bayard, of bis resignation as chairman of the finance cotucittee, offered by b:m on account of re marks ma.uO ;n the caucus and elsewhere, by some of his colleagues, to the effect that tha committee should be reoic-aniied to accord with the views of a majority of tho party on tha silver oaestion. A long discussion en sued, similar, in roost of its features, to that which took place in last Monday's caucus, but bringing out decided opposition on tho part of a number ot silver men themselves as to tha acceptance of Senator Barard's resicnation. and an expression of opinion of several of them that the bill needs nmendiug in various DHrhiculars. eaneeiaile to make tho ninth, section confer m to tha fourth. which rivea Boinnoiaec to the Eovernuaent At the close of the discussion it was agreed to i .(e.- Ibo whi le subject, icciudicg Senator Bayard's &....' -J- r-sisranon, to a commit tee, consisting of Senators I burman, M'Don ald and Garland, for consideration, and re port, to a future meeting l' f lUa en 1 1 1 n J r other action was taken, but tnes seems to be a general expectation among the Demo cratic senators that, as a consequence of interchange of view in to-day's caucus, Senator Bayard will withdraw bis resigna tion, and that the majority of tha finance committee will allow the silrer bill to be re ported back to the committee with the rec ommendation that it be placed on the calendar with the understanding that do action s' II be taken on tne meas ure until l ' next session. it is be lieved that cx-nator Bavard will consent to this course of procedure in the nature of a compromise, although he would insist upon resigning nis cnairmansuip n osouwi vuic resolution to discbarge the committee were made a party decree, and he will, .under no circumstances, consent to report the bill without a distinct understanding that action upon it shall be postponed until the next ses sion. Coasteesionai rroeeeaiags. IN THE HOUSS. Mr. Morrison, from the committee on ways and means, reported a bill authorizing an al lowance for losses by leakage or casualty of spirits withdrawn from distillery warehouses tor exportation. Referred to the committee on the whole, ' Mr. Pound introduced a bill authorizing the secretary of war to use certain moneys ap propriated by the act of March 3, 1879, for the protection of the high sandbanks of the Chippewa river. Mr. Young, from the committee on public buildings and grounds, reportel a joint reso lution for tbe completion of the foundation of Washinston monument. Mr. Morton, from the committee cn foreign nffarrs, reported by unanimous consent a bill to allow any telegraph company 'to land their ocean cables on tne coast ot tue United tates. This is the bill reported by Mr. Fcr- nuouu vt uuu m mo iacu wuicdb lur liio pur pose of cutting oft all class legislation. Ice bill, however, is subject to the terms of such grants as have heretofore been made by con gress for laying and maintaining talegraph cables. . Tbe bill passed, and the house soon after ward adjourned. IN THE SENATE. On motion of Senator Withers the army appropriation bill was read the second time and referred to the committee on appropria tions. Oil motion the house supplemental post route bill was taken up, amended and passed. On motion of Senator Beck the senate pro ceeded to consider the legislative, executive and judicial appropriation bills, as reported from the committee on appropriations. Senator Bsck explained tha bill, with the view to simplifying it. as it came from the house. Ue had himself prepared, as a sub stitute, an amendment presenting the usual form of such an appropriation bill without changing tbe amount or the purpose of the appropriations, except according to the amendments made by the senate committee on appropriations. Ha was not, however, authorized by the committee to report that substitute; yet it might help the senate to understand the house bill. Senator Windoin thought he could not vote for the bill as passed by the house. It was au incomprehensible affair, and it wou'.d be far better to pass the bill lately vetotd without the political clauses. Senator Back explained that the bill had been r assed in its present shape by the house and accepted by tho senate committee with the view to having action and permitting an early adjournment. Senator Windom moved to recommit tho bill, that the committee might have the op portunity to report in the usual form. Senator Houston opposed the motion, on account cf the delay it would cause. Senator Allison supported Senator Win dom's motion. He could not understand why a bill which had been agreed to twice by both houses during this cession should not be passed again without the disputed political clauses. Senator Davis fW. Va. oppoeed the mo tion. Senator Blaine supported it, and severely criticised the form ot th3 bill, saying ftaong other things, that as it came from tha house it actually appropriates nothing at all, and the senate committee had to amend by in serting the necessary appropriating clause. He thought it little short of a disgrace for congress to send such a thing cut as an ap croDriation bill. Ha read some of the lan guage of the bill, and amid tbe laughter which followed, said that, if the people did not know where this language was used, they would think it was taken from a joke-book. Yet this was what came from the house as an appropriation bill. Ha thought a good raotion would have been to kick the whole thing under the lablei Senator Conkliocr also devideJ the bill. Senator Windom's motion to recommit was lost yeas, 23; nays, 32 a strict party vote, except that Senator Davis 111. voted vea. Senator Anthony Lcped that Senator Beck's substitute would ba cousidered. Senator Beck explained that the commit tee had not reported on bis substitute. Ha felt compelled to stund by tha action of his committee, and would support tha bill as re' i ported. The bill was then read for action on tbe committee amendments.. When tho first clause had been read Sena tor Windoni asked Senator Beck to inform him how much money that clause appro Senator Beck said ha could tell how much the whole bill appropriated, nataely, about fc timers million nine hundred thousand dollars It T?as brif to say what any one clause ap propriated. Senator w muom Baia every clause or pima- , tor Beck's substitute showed just what money wa3 voted by it. ita wanted to snow ii osn tnr Reck could tell within four or five million of what this clause appropriated. Laughter. senator iiecu b repiy, ana ion discussion that followed, was a repetition of the previ ous debate. Sjnator Blame rose to a DOint of order, and asked in what parliamentary form ba could offer an amendment to any of the clauses re pealed or continued by this bill it be objected to any of them. Senator Beck tnougbt tuis bill could be amended just like any other. benator blame said noinmg couia De amended that was not read 'at the clerk's desk; he could fire a blank shot in the air, in the hope that it would strike something ia last year's bill. Senator Beck thought that last yepr's bill could be read. Senator Blaine did not know under what rule. The presiding officer Garland remarked that he did not feel called upon to decide the appeal case, and asked Senator Blaine to state the amendment. Senator Blaiao therefore offered an amend ment ti substitute "thirty-six hundred dol lars" for "thirty-five hundred dollars" for "wagons for transporting the senate mails." There was considerable laughter and con fusion as nobody could find such a provision ia the bill, and Senator Blame seid that it came in somewhere under the first clause. Several Democratic senators protested against this method of what they considered obstruction. - After some f urther debate Sen ator BIain withdrew his amendment, and tha rending of tha bill was prcceeded with. At the end of each clause tbe debate was re newed, as indicated above, Senator Blaine at one time going so far as to say that the bill really appropriated nothing for the year 18G0, but only amended and limited the appropria tiolfor 1879. Senator Saulisbury denounced what be called "this captious criticism of the bill." He would say that any man, with any legal acauien, who attempted to consider the bill, would be a jackass if he could not understand what congress meant by it. Great laughter touowea mis recount ana good nuraor toos: the place of a general irritation before mani fested. I Senator Rollins submitted an amendment appropriating one hundred and fifty thousand dollars to pay judgment of the court of claims. Rejected yeas. 17: nays, 30. ' Senator Bailey submitted an amendment appropriating ona hundred and fifty thousand dollars tor collecting statistics and compiling matter for annual and special reports, and editing and publishing circulars of informa tion by the bureau of education. Adopted. Tue bill was reported back to the senate and the amendments made in. the committee ot the whole were agreed to. Senator Blaine obtained the assurance of Senator Beck that the bill contained nothing attecting tbo disputed political questions, say ing that he could not find out himself what it did or did not contain. Tbe bill was then read a third tiuie and passed. Senator Wallace moved to lake up the sup elemental judicial appropriation bill. Senator White moved b proceed t i the consideration of executive buaiuess. Senator Conkling ' moved to adjourn Agreed to.

Strong Breeze Blowing, Spreading tho Devouring Element Beyond Control Three Thousand Feet of Wharves Destroyed in Connec tion Tflth 3Iuch Other Valuable Property Cansc of the Jfew Outbreak. Philadelphia. June' 13. The Poist Bre-e ?a fire has broken out again. A second alarm has been sounded, and dispatches from there say the whole place is again in ti limes'. SECOND DISPATCH. Philadelphia. June 13. The fire at Point Br.ez'3 was rekindled at a quarter past eleven o'clock this morning by a btiff breeze wnicn prevailed, and the flames were tanned to immense proportions. The Atlantic petro leum storage company's warehouse building, about five thousand feet long and a hundred and fitly feet wide, took fire from the burn ing oil which escaped from the Hudson, one ot the vessels which haa been in flames since the bre of Wednesday. Ihe entire works and surroundings are iu peril. THIRD DISPATCH. Philadelphia, June 13, 12:20 p.m. The following dispatch has just been received from Poict Breeze: "At noon the place ia going. It is feared now that the fire will reach the Point Breeze od-work?. A strong west breeze blew the fl-imes to the wharf of tha Atlantic petroleum storage compa ny, and at once spread to a large shed, two hundred by eighty feet,, im mediately south ot the warehouse which was destroyed on Wednesday. The wind then veered to the north, and a long line of sheds, extending tor nearly a mile south caught fire, and by noon all were in a biaza with seventy-three hundred barrels of oil which tbey contained. South of these sheds are the Point Breeze oi'.-works alluded to in the above dispatch, and below there are a large number of frame dwellings, occupied by workmen and their families. In rear of ths line cf the seven sheds reported on fire are five others and larger warehouses, the smallest cf which is two hundred and sixty feet long by one hundred and twenty wide, and the largest four hundred and sixty feet by one hundred and twenty-hve. these are eeparated irom tbe burning hheds by an ele vation of ground, and from present indica tions they wdi be saved, as well as the At lantic oils:cnipany s tanks further east, which contain one hundred and thirty-five thousand barrels crude and forty taousand barrels of refined and special ciis in process of manu facture. Tha brick residence of Mr. Wilson, near the first of the sheds which took fire this morning, is burned. FOURTH DISPATCH. Philadelphia, June 13. At a quarter to one this afternoon ail tbe sheds along the river front as far south as the Point Breeza oil-works were in ruins. The flames spread so rapidly that tbe Schuylkill harbor police tug. Wave, which was acting with the lira brigade, narrowly escaped destruction. At a quarter past one this afternoon the fire had reached the Empire shed, where it burned thirty thousand empty barrels. This place js the first warehouse above the Point Breeza oil-works, bat it is believed that the fire has reached its scnthf ru limit at that point, and that the oil-wot ka wilt ba saved. FIFTH DISPATCH. Philadelphia, Juno 13. Tha fire at Point Broez9 to day was started from the bark Ilion, not from tne Hudson. The Ilion, which has been burning for two days, upset tuis morning and scattered its burning con tents on tne river, in this way tha hre was communicated to the shore. Prom the Atlantic petroleum store?, whiph caught first, tha fira spread to the wharf of the Empire stor age company, and Irom toenca communica ted to the warehouses of that concern. In the EniDire stores were some forty thousand empty barrelc, valued at about one dollar each, which were entirely consumed, to gether with the wharf and brjildings. Loss on the Empire stores, wbarf and contents, will reach about one hundred and eighty thousand dollars. Loss on tbe Atlantic pe troleum stores will reach one hundred thou aand dollars, without taking into considera tion their contents. The tugs Juno and New castle, of the Red Star line, and the Wave, of tue harbor polic9 service, are at the scene, and are throwing water on the burning build ings. At present there seems to ba more hope of saving Stewart s refinery, which is in tho direct line or the nre. xno wind has now changed to the west, which ia a yery favora ble indication. sixth dispatch. Philadelphia, June 13, 3 p.m. At twen- tv-five minutes past two tha fire was not burning so fiercely, and is, ptobably, under control. .Nothing further than previously stated lias been burned. seventh dispatch. Philadelphia. June 13. In addition to the loss cf one thousand feet of wharves last Wednesday, there have been three thousand feet more burned to-day. The crude-oil line pipe from the works to tha, river, wtoicn is used to fill tha barrels, is on fire at the wharf, and the end has been cut to head the fira off from the reanery. Ine are lias now little or nothwtr to feed on. P The five vessels destroyed at Point Breeze, Wednesday, were valued aitogctuer at a in? tie over one hundred and twenty thousand dollars. The Staadard oil company's lass is one hundred and httv thousand dollars These fignres, with certain other smaller losses, make the total loss by Wednesday's fire about three thousand dollars. eighth dispatch. Philadelhia. June 13. The loss by to day's fire will not exceed one hundred and fiftv tkouiaad dollars. Lecompte & Perkins, whose loss is about twenty-five thousand dol lars, are covered by insurance. Warden Frew & Co.'s loss is estimated at fifty thou sand dollars. THE FRAJiCO-AllEKlCiS TREATY Of Commerce IHecuesed by the Cham ber ot Commerce or San JPr&ncleeo A. Wide Variance of Opinion Between tae Representatives of the Two Governments as tw Its Results. San Francisco, June 13. A special meeting of the chamber of commerce was held this afternoon tor the purpose of con sidering the proposed treaty between France and the United States. Ihere was an un usually large attendance, which included several eentiemen not members of the cham ber. Leon Choteau, representing the French interests, had addresses printed, giving the date, favor and adoption of the treaty, anc1 showing how far he thought this country would be benefited bv the almost free lutro duction of French wiuss and other articles of consumption. C. A. Wetmore followed in a carefully pre pared snecch. intended to show that the pro' visions of the proposed treaty -would operate iriuriouslv to this country. He said M. Cho teau was here as the paid agent of a small body of manufacturers, and bad no more to do with the government of Franca than private citfx?n. Ha referred to the disconten prevailing in Eagland over free-trade relat tions with France, aud produced a long array of statistics in support of his position. Congressman Luttrell spoke against the proposed treaty, enlarging on the advantage i; would give French- manufacturers over American. After a session of two hours and a half, tbe following resolutions passed unanimously: Jtrxolmt, That this chamber is decidedly and em phatically opposed to the proposed reciprocity treaty with France. Jiemlivt, That our representatives in congress be requested to use their utmost eftoris to defeat any such treaty. Av.KXt'Af, That a committee ot live be appointed by the chair to collate and transmit to our repre- sentattves in congress, and (o the various chamber of commerce throughout the country, all the neces sary statistics and Information as to toe Injurious effect such a treaty jvoald have on the Interests of this State. The general sense of tbe meeting as gath ered from tbe discussion, seemed to be that the present time is inopportune for any ma terial charge in our commercial relations with foreign countries, and that sound policy demands that the government should make no radical changes in the tariff system until the eauibbrium of EuroDean commerce, now disturbed by local over production and com petition ot American products, is restored, and the bankrupt stocks of manufactured articles are disposed of. THE PILLOW CASE, In the Manry County Circuit Court, De cided for the State An Appeal to be Taken to the Supreme Court. Special to the Appeal. Nashtille. June 13. In the case of Pil- ow, clerk of the Maury county circuit court. who filed a petition for a mandamus against the comptroller to compel him to show cause why he should not pay over to him the costs accruing in his court, instead of to the chair man of the court, Judge Reid dismissed Pil low's petition, saying that the legislature, by the act of 1879, clearly indicated that, instead of drawing tha warrant in favor of the clerk for costs accrued against the State in criminal cases, as provided in section 5570 of tbe code, tha comptroller should draw it in favor of the county judge, who is directad by said act to pay the amount over to the county trustee, to be kept by bim, separate and apart from other funds in his hands, and to be paid out by bim only upon the warrant of tha county udge. ihe case will he appealed.

Crop Prospects in Ohio and. Pennsyl Cleveland. Juni 13. The Leader this morning publishes reports from nearly all important points in northern Ohio, and some places in western Pennsylvania, eiing tbe condition of the crops. The frosts of last week did vary little carnage. There will be about a two-third orop oi wheat. The pros pects are that the corn crop will be a failure, Tbe cause of which is tha long dry weather which prevailed ia this region previous to last week. Oats are somewhat better than corn, thouizh not over a two-third crop. The hay crop will bo very light on account ot the draught. There will probably be a fair yield of potatoes. Fruits, particularly apples, will very light. Bamaging Storms In Ohio, Indiana and Cincinnati, June 13. Dispatches from Ohio.

Massachusetts Mill Strikes, Fall River, June 13. The mill owners, refusing to submit their differences with the spinners to arbitration, tbe committee of the latter win aetermina to-night, subiect to ratification to-morrow night, in which five mills the strike for higher wages snail begin. ihe mill agents propose shutting down ail mills, and it such action is taken twelve thousand hinds will be thrown out of work. Should the lock-out ba protracted, there will ba great suffering and misery. The meeting of the spinners' committee, held to-night, was nearly unanimous in the opinion that an the mills euould be struck At a general meeting of the spinners, to morrow night, the whole body is expected to take action on this question. It is stated that there is little or no doubt, however, but the sentiment will be for such a strike. It is further proposed that the strike begin next Monday, instead ot waiting till July 1st. Sev eral ot the committee to-night expressed themselves in iavor ot striking at on:e, with out giving any notice, but the committee were not unanimous on this point. Secretary Howard said he personally favored giving notice, but as soma wished to strike at once, the question would also be submitted, at to morrow's meeting. Tha meetine willundoubb edly be large a one, as numerous committees are to report, several resolutions to be voted on, and the gravelquestion of throwing fifteen thousand persons out of work, causing loss of wages of one hundred thousand dollars rer week, be thoroughly discussed. Secretary Howard states that the spinners are in good condition for a strike, having several thou sand dollars in their treasury and no outside aid yet received, and that the spinners could easily stand a strike of two months duration. Mothers will grow weary and sigh over the baby's troubles, when Dr. Ball's baby syrup would relieve the child and thereby give tbe mother rest. FOREIGN SILTER MARKETS. The Cuban Authorities Want only Span ish Coin at "Face Yalue" In Ratio with Gold All Other will be Yalned as Fractional Parts of a Dollar. The London "Times" Discusses the Main Causes of the Sndden Rise in the British Silver Market tier- many 'a Coinage Policy was at the Bottom of the Breeze. Foreign Silver Coin Snubbed by the Cuban Authorities. Havana, June 13. Captain-General Blan co has iasued a decree that from the first of July all contributions and other payments into tue public treasury must be made in cold. admitting the payment of foreign silver only for fractions of one dollar. The treasury will receive silver Spanihh coin without limit, ac cording to its value relative to Spanish gold coin. The English Silver (uestlon. London. June:13 The Times, in its finan- al article, snys: One of the main causes of the rise in silver was tho publication of a let ter to theunder-secretary of stata for India, giving the views of Lord OJo Russell, British ambassador to Berlin, in regard to Germany's coinage policy. The letter con firms the announcement ot the German gov ernment's determination net to s-.ll acy more silver at present. The letter further states that the Germaa government has sil ver on hand which wiil increase during suspension cf sales. Aud it i3 added on tha authority of Lord OJo Russell that it is uen erally believed by financial men in Ger many that the government is prepanner to introduce and adopt tha double standard, as in France. This news may be quite correct, tor the economy vagaries ot the German gov ernment in all directions are of unknown quantities, and we may ba prepared to ac cept the perpetuation of any folly after what the past few yeaJs hava revealed. Still it would be well to receive this news with cau tion, for more reasons than one. The be lief of financial men in Germany is that there is hardly sufficient ground on which to come to the conclusion that silver will be re- monetized forthwith R3 a whole. However. the tendency of the extracts contained in the parliamentary paper, where this letter ap pears, is to Jshow that a recovery in the alua ot silver is cmito nrobable. lhat Germany wiil cease sell at the present prices : 1 i-i r . ia again aiso very uzeiy, ior ner loss so far has been rather Bevere. She is behind with her silver coinage, quite apart from any question of a double standard, and in the end may not have much more to sell. The production of silver, moreover, has been tar less in pro portion than is popularly supposed, and its consumption is greater than those who advo cate the adoption of bimetalism for Eng'and have allowed for. All this fully justifies the opinion that the depreciation of silver has been unduly great, bat it by no means fol lows that an immediate and great rise is to take place. The lesson taught by recent ex periments with Indian council drafts should not be so lightly forgotten. While their drafts are kept small in amount silver ad vances in price, but the moment they increase to anything like a level of the requirements of the India government tha market eives ay. This state of things must to some ex tent continue. Whatever the intention of tha German government may be, and whatever the relative production of silver and gold, as long as the amount of India council de mands to meet the payment nearly eoual or exceeds what excess of export India can cover, it cannot ba too often reiterated that therein lies the true dithiulty of the silver question.
