BILLS PASSED BY THE SENATE.
A communication was presented from tbe Post
master General, with copies of letters from the
postmaster and collector ot customs at New York,
In response to Senate resolution or OtU January
calling tor Information as t% the reason for the de
tention In New York of books and other parcels re
ceded by mall from foreign countries. These com
munications represent tliat no unnecessary delay
occurs. During the holidays, or between the 1st
of December and 1st of February, the receipts by
m ill ot such book* and packages (which have to
be gent 10 the custom-house for appraisement)
amount to from 0,000 to 7,000. The Inspector of
customs at the posi-offlce (Mr. Morgan) states that
no non-dutlabte books have been detained at all,
and that dutiable books have necessarily to be de
tained over night, and that no further detention
takes place than is necessary.
Mr. Hoar expressed himself as not satisfied with
the explanations submitted, and, on his motion,
they were referred to the committee ou nuance.
Bills were reported from the committee on
finance and placed on the calendar as follows: To
reimburse the depositors of the Freedmen's Sav
ings and Trust Co., and (adversely) to refund exces
sive duties caused by extraordinary overvaluation
of the Austrian Qorln.

be built between the cities of omalia and council
Bluffs, and whether it is being constructed as a
combined railway and wagon bridge or as a wagon
bridge only. Laid over.
AN INSCRIPTION ON THE WRAPPERS.
Mr. Piatt offered a resolution instructing the
post-office committee to inquire whether any mall
matter addressed to Senators has been detained In
the Washington post-offlce, and whether such de
tention has been legal or Illegal. He made an ex
planatory statement to the effect that four hun
dred copies of a book mailed by a Connecticut ad
vertising tlrm to Senators and members of Con
gress, and on each of which 11 cents postage was
paid, had been charged :n cents extra postage be
cause the words "Judicious advertising agents and
experts" had been printed on the wrapper, and
had not been delivered liecause such extra postage
was not paid. In his Judgmeut tne
law did not authorize this extra charge.
The construction put upon the law by the Post
master-General In that respect was In his (Mr.
Piatt's) opinion not only a terhnlcal construction,
but an improper and unjusiltlable construction,
which had caused great distress, annoyance and
loss to the business people or the country.
Mr. Saulsbury defended the action or the Post
master-General, who had merely (he said) sent to
the (>ostmasicrs ot the country a copy of the
statute in question and let them construe It lor
themselves. He (Saulsbury) had voted in com
mittee yesterday authorizing the reporting of a
bill to correct what was complained of.

A Long Coalml Over hi* Sionsinatlon
lit (be Senate.
The senate, after three hours In secret session
yesterday afternoon, confirmed the nominations of
Sir. Lamar to be associate Justice of the supreme
Court; Mr. Vilas to be secretary of the Interior,
Don M. Dickinson to be Postm ister General, anil
Gen. Bragg to be United States minister to Mexico.
The time was taken up In considering the nornr
nation of Mr. Lamar. There was no opposition o
delay as to the others. 1
The executive session began at 1 o'clock, and the
fight on Mr. Lamar was waged with bitterness.
There w.;s no Idea that he could be defeated, but
It was the purpose ot the republicans, evidently,
to emphasize their protest and get as much party
capital out of the matter as possible.
Klddleberger, Stewart and Stanford are under
stood to be i lie only republicans who voted for con
firmation. Otherwise the result showed a strict
party vote, all the oiher republicans voting
against Mr. Lamar or being paired against him.
Speeches against confirmation were made by tne
live republican members of th* Judiciary commit
tee, Mr. Kdmunds leading, and by Senators Sher
man, H.iwley, Allison and Culiom. 1 he only
sp ech on the other side was by Mr. Klddleberger.
The result of the vote was :c! for confirmation
and 2H against. Messrs. Blaekoiirn, KusUs, Gib
son, Hearst, Kenna, Pasco, Payne and Hansom
were paired wllh Chandler, Jones,of Nevada, Man
dersou, Morrill, Sabln, Sawyer, Teller and Wilson,
The following Is understood to be the vote:
For continuation?Messrs. Bate, Beck, Berry,
Blodgett, Brown, Butler, oail. Cockreli, coke,
Colquitt, Daniel, Faulkner, George, Gorman,
Gray, Hampton, Harris, Jones, of Arkansas, Mc
pherson, Morgan, Pugh, lleagan, Rlddlebergvr,

well. Fry e, Hale, llawley, lllscock, Hoar, Ingalls,
Mitchell, Padaock, Palmer, Piatt. Plumb, ^uay,
Sherman, spooner, Stockbildge?'-J8.
THE COMMENT TO-DAV.
There was not much comment about the Senate
to-day on the subject ot the confirmation of Mr.
Lamar, as the result was foreseen and surprised
nobody. The small number of republicans who
voted tor Mr. Lamar created a feeling of disappoint
ment among the latter's friends. Hie republican
Senators arc severe upon Messrs Stewart and
Stanford because of their votes. They say they
have no complaint or contention to make of Mr.
Rlddlebeger; that he being a Southern man did
right lo vole for Mr. Lamar'9 confirmation. But
Messrs. Stewart and Stanford are raked fore and
aft, and some go so far as to intimate that there
was an agreement between them and the Presi
dent by which the latter should deal leniently
with the Pacific railroads on condition of the two
Senators voting for Mr. I^imar. But this Is re
garded as simply an emanation of disappointed
partisanship. It is generally conceded now that all
the pressure possible to exert was brought to
bear to prevent republicans from voting tor Mr.
Lamar, and that the pressure succeeded in lorcing
several Into line.
THE HOl'XE DISTRICT COMMITTEE.

London, Jan. 17.?The pope's action on English
politics has never beeu more eagerly watched than
at present. L't"nicer*, which, since the death ot
Ve:illlot, has lost much of lis old Influent"? as a
Catholic organ, but is still believed occasionally to
be ln-plrcd from the Tatlcan, says the pope prom
ises the Kngllsh government that he will, on cer
tain conditions, mediate bet ween England and Ire
land, now mat be has learned the state ot Ireland
through Mgr. Perslco's report. He demands the
concession of a moderate measure of home rule, a
local parliament to legislate on Irish affairs and a
compromise respecting the Umiu of Its authority.
The pope advises the tones to take the wind out
ol ??la*l>looe's sails by doptlng the g nerai prin
ciple of his program and thus secure t.ie adhesion
ol lb Irish Catholic clergy. This, if true, proves
what tue Irish members always allege. vu-: That
the p'pe dares not openly oppose tlie national
