as authorized by law, and one hundred thou
sand dollars to increase the service on exist
ing routes, provided that no increase shall
exceed the rate of five thousand dollars per

Consideration was resumed on tne diu,
At the expiration of the morning hour tbe
speaker laid before tbe houe a message from
tne xr resident, transmitting communication
from the attorney-general in regard to ap
propriations for United States marshals.
In the communication the attorney-general
informs th9 President that the last con
gress and the present congress, at tbe extra
session, adjourned without making provis
ions for the payment of marshals balance
last July. These officers have served with
out appropriations, and not only have they
served without compensation tor themselves
or deputies, but have advanced sums neces
sary to be expended in order that processes
of tbe United States should not fad. He is
informed, however, that they have reached
the limit of their capacity thus to conduct
their offices, and a failure in that would
necessarily bring about a failure to enforce
the laws of the United States, which in such
case would occur by want of suitable appro
priations JNo one could enumerate tne vast
number of cases in which that failure would
be attended with grave results, disastrous te
individual and public justice of the United
States. He had no doubt that these officers
will continue to do their bast, but he trusts
con press will, as soon as possible, show them
that the confidence which they felt that ap
propriations would be made for their tees
and expenditnres, has not been misplaced.
As the head of tbe department of justice, he
feels it bis duty to inform the f resident of
the condition of affairs, and the consequent
efforts to be anticipated upon public justice,
in order that the president may urge upon
congress the necessity of a prompt disposal
of the matter.
The communication was referred.
Mr. Reagan, rising to a Question of per
sonal privilege, sent to the clerk's desk and
had rcid in article in the New York Sun, of
the el-v-iih instant, stating that he, as
chairman ot the committee on commerce, had
ir.YoVd bin-1-.e'f io trouble in regard to the
it.tirr Nie commerce billj and that he had
chxr'-tr t .at improper influence bad been
used to t-etout his bill, and that tbe speaker
had stock' d tbe committee so as to secure its
defeat. Ha declared that statement to be a
gross perversion of the truth, which showed
a desire to heap odium on him. Ut the
false statements it contained be would call
attention to but three. It was not true
that the committee had rebuked bim;
it was not true thit tbe speaker had
demanded he should makTa retraction
of any assertion which he bad wade. The
speaker had called his attention to what pur
ported to be an interview in tbe Washington
Post. Oa reading it he had informed tie
speaker that the language was not his own,
and that he was not responsible for it. Tbe
whole of the interview had not been pub
lished. The committee had not deliberated
whether or not it should censure him, as the
article stated. The effort was probably to
bring odium on him in order to defeat a
great measure with which bis name had
bteo coupled, ue could not escape false ana
infamous attacks when engaged in a strug
gle with the people againBt corporations of
the country, but he would continusnhe con
test faithfully to the end.f
Speaker Randall having called Air. Cox to
the chair, took the floor and -said that when
his attention had been called to the article in
the Post, be had naturally felt indignant.
and had called the attention of tbe gentleman
from Texas to it. That gentleman had said
that the language was not his, and tnat be
would see that a correction was made. That
correction had been made, and there his
Randall'? connection with the mater
ended. Tne statement had been a wicked
and serious one, and there was not a scintilla
of truth from beginning to end. In to far as
it asserted that he had been swayed in the
least degree in appointing committees by a
desire to defeat any particular measure, any
such statement was wickedly aud outrageous
Mr. wait, a member ot tbe committee on
commerce, stated that, so tar as he could
recollect, there bad been no movement on
the part of any member of the committee to
censure or rebuke the chairman.
Mr. M'Lane, also a member of the com
merce, said that what the gentleman trom
Texts was understood to say was that a com
mittee bad been stocked by the speaker so as
to defeat a particular measure.
Mr. Reagan 1 never used tbose words.
Mr. M'Lane Tbe identical words "by the
speaker" may not have been used; but what
is tbe sense conveyed oy what tne gentleman
said that a committee had been stocked to
defeat a bill. Wbo constitutes a committee?
Who Btocks a committee but tbe speaker?
Tbe gentleman irom Texas, he continued,
bad made the observation that the committee
had beon stocked, and that observation had
reflected on tbe speaker, and necessarily on
the individual members of the committee, if
the gentleman had charged that improper
influences bad been used to deleat the bill.
Mr. Reagan No such word or insinuation
was mitde by me, and yet the language used
was susceptib'e of such a construction. No
matter what was the spirit in which these re
marks were made, I do not tbink them prop
er. I do not think think that gentlemen can
maintain agreeable relations if they indulge
in such remarks. 1 think tbe remarks im
proper and made without justification.
Mr. Kenna and other members of the com
mittee said that on tbe final vote of the inter
state commerce bill, some remarks bad fallen
from the chairman about the proper construc
tion of which opinions bad differed. Some
members of tbe committee had put upon it
an offensive construction, and tbe chairman
had immediately disavowed any such inten
tion, rind denied the propriety of that con
struction, and here the matter dropped.
Aebate on tbe revision of the rules was
then resumed, and was participated in by
Messrs. W right, Cox, Hawley, Stevenson and
Brown, but without advancing the pjatter
materially tne house adjourned.

the condition ot winter wheat in Scotland are
satisfactory. Potatoes have been steadily
rising owing to tbe demand for seed for Ire

the lower rates which were offered, and bust

pally' affected badly conditioned parcels.
The import of foreitrn wheat into London
has been moderate; the demand has been
chiefly of a retail character, as town millers
seem determined to hold off until they see
some better ground of some better existence
of quotations in America than speculative
enterprise. Consumption, however, goes on.
though speculation is absent and business,
though quiet, is very steady. Prices have
been maintained except for Russia, tor which
sellers are obliged to accept a little less
money, though all the depression was recov

last nvht. Judge R. J. Morgan delivered a
lecture on tbe sal jnct. "Religion the Basis
of Sjciety and its Influence Upon Personal
Character.' Tbe hall ot the institute was
filled, many of our best and most intelligent
citizens being present. A large majority of
those attending were colored people, who
listened to the instructive lecture with the
greatest of attention and interest. Judge
Morgan opened his lecture with a definition
of the word "religion" which he used in the
sense ot devotion, not adoratioa. He diew
a grapbio pictore of thn man whose life and
nature are under tbe influence ot tnat devo
tion that regulated his actions and controlled
his conduct. This ufl .ence, in the aggre
gate presented -fo the world a people
in meir national aa wen aa muiviu-
ual character pure and virtuous.
The best evidence of refinement and elegance
ot a people is discovered in their public
houses of worship and in their cemeteries
prepared for tbe burial of their dead. The
lecturer dwelt upon the impressions made
upon the mind in churches and in cemeteries,
which impressions develop acts ot charity
and deeds of benevolence. The worship of
some deity, whicb is indulged in by all na
tions, was pictured lortb by tne lecturer in a
graphic manner the worship of the Afri
cans, the Persians, thn Egyptians, and the
pagan worship in old Roman days, ween the
Pantheon existed and when arts and sciences
flourished. The sentiment of worship de
veloped itself with the refined Greek and
Roman in tbe beauty of the Pantheon and
the splendor of the Acropolis, with the Egyp
tian in the obelisk, with tbe East Iadiaman
ia his pagoda. The gradual development
or advance from paganism to Chris
tianity, through Judaism, was ex
plained by the lecturer; tbe building of
Solomon's temple, tbe capture ot Jerusalem,
the captivity of the Hebrews, and at last the
christian altar bearing the inscription,
"Peace on earth, good will toward men."
Were tbe christian altars destroyed, nations,
if they did not relapse into barbarism, would
drift into paganism; society would be held
together only by tbe force of municipal law;
morality and virtue would be controlled by
fear or fancy; tbe family circle would be de
stroyed, und woman would travel back to a
condition of servitude to her lord and master,
Judge Morgan drew a lengthy and philo
sophical contrast between progress in Eng
land and in Spain, and depicted the advance
ment of the former and the decay of tbe lat
ter. Of England he said: "The people were
free, virtuous and independent. The great
truths of the bible, faith and individual
responsibility were taught and practiced.'
Of Stain, the lecturer added: "The govern
ment thought for, directed and controlled tbe
people. There the conscience was held in
Yiesalage, and rules and measures prescribed
tor individual responsibility: tbe resuit was.
when the rulers were wise and good, the na
tion was prosperous, but when they were suc
ceeded by those that were weak and imbecile
(the people having no individual virtue and
strength) it soon fell into ruin and decay."
Judge Morgan closed nis lecture saying
"the great chart of morality and virtue, as
thev affect the individual and up through
him the nation, is tbe bible, it is this book
the will of God that has been given to
man to direct him to his inheritance; it is
the light that must lead him from the
darkness and gloom of this life up tJ the
brighter realms of tbe purified. A gift so
precious should it not be cauonized in tbe
world's affection? and should not the nob'e
and free of every class and clime unite in
spreading its truths and perpetuating its
