An Amendment to the Eaatla Keso
latioa DipcDttlon on the
Educatloiial Bill.
WAsnijir.TON, February 11. iuuse.
Mr. Keed Me offered resclution
modifying tue oider miking the Fid
John i'oitor bill continuing special
order from tday ODtil next Thurs
day, so ui to provide that tbe bili shall
not be considered until ui.er the eeo
ond moruicg hour on each day.
Mr. Randall Pa , endeavored to
have tbe order fuituer amended, eo
that the previous question should be
ordered on Tuesday instead of Thurs
day, but he was unsuccessful, and Mr.
Heed's resolution was adopted.
Mr. Bingham Fa J asked leave to
introduce a bill granting pension of
Jl'lRX) pr annum to the widow of lion.

Mr. Rogers rArk., from the Com
mittee on the Judiciary, reported a
bill conferring civil jurisdiction in
certain cases ariuing in the Indian
TerrOry on United Htutes courts
which exorcise crimitul jurisdiction
over tbe Territory. limine calendar.
Mr. K. B.Taylor, from the name
committee, reported bill to extend
the laws of the United fc'Utes over
ceituin unorganized territory south of
the Niu'.e of Kansas, llouae cal
endar. In the second morning hour Mr.
. Adams 111., on behalf of the Com
mittee on Banking and Currency,
called up the bill to enable national
banking associations to increase their
capital stock, and to change their
names or location. - The bill passed
yeas, 125; nayp, 120. Mr. Adams en
tered a motion to reconsider and to
lay that motion on the table, but the
morning hour hiiviag expired final
nction win not taVon.
The House then, at 2 o'clock, went
into committee of the; whole, Mr.
Nprinner 111. in tbe chair, on the
Fil John i'orier bill.
Ihe debate was opened by Mr
Haynes of New Hampshire in nop
port oi tne bill. The strongest pmu
dice which he bad ever entertained
had been against 1 orter, but it bad
disappeared when he proceeded to
examine the case. He did not share
in the estimate of l'opo entertained
by many of Foiter's friends, but ha
believed that if any other of l'ope'a
Koiioiius nau ueun in rorier a place
and had ait;d as 1'orter had acted
there wonld never have been a court
martial, and uo Union general of that
campaign would have sullured for
more than twenty years a atlirtna
worse than death. It had been l'or-
ter s disrespectful and inexcusable al
lusions to Fone that had singled bim
out as an object ol euspicion and an
object of revenge. Porter had been
one rr the growlora, and hie punish'
meet bad been out of all proportion
to his otTtmse. Beth Lincoln and
Grant, at one time, had equally be
lieved in the justice of the Foitsr
sentence, but be to whom the oppor
tunity nau Deen Riven lor a calm,
uinnsseinnaie review tl the case
had ptoclaimed the injustice of
tne verdict, and become the earnest
champion of Porter's cause, and he
was. a noia man who dared Impugn
me military judgment or U.S. Uraat,
If IJncolnhad lived he (Mr. Haynes)
uwjieveu iuai Lincoln and Urant
would have stood together in a de
mand lofjustice to Fits John Foitsr.
Mr. (Steele Ind. toik the floor m
opposition to the bill, and premised
his speech with the remark, "What in
thunder are we here for; why are we
discussing Fila John I'orter?" and
spoke for some time in opposition to
the bill, during which be was ee vet ill
times Interrupted by Mr. Bragg, going
over tbe same atguments heretofore
UBed against Porter, and after dwelling'
with a great minnt'io of detail upon
i the military operations ut the '.7th of
. August, Mr. Steele concluded his
speech as follows: "If we have wars
hereafter they will be for a common
count ry. Let us not say by our action
.that we wnut any man tf Fortor's
kind t j command when the countiy's
eafoty is in danger. Lit us say to
our sons and our sons' sone,
'Whon you receive an order obev it,
though at the cost of your life. Let
us suy to our eons and our Bona' sons:
' Kven without an order, if you hear
the call of battle move ou to the suc
cor of your companions, whether you
like your commanding ollicer or not."
Mr. Brag inquired whether it was
not ni grave a blunder on the part of a
euoordinnta ctlieer to precipitate an
action bt f ire the lines were fonu d
and the preparations for battle made
as it was for him not to engage in
Mr. riteelo-We had a line of battle,
and the numbers left on the Held at
teit that it was n grmt line of battle,
and the gectleiuaa fjr whom you
speak did not make a recomiolseance
to inform himself whether or not ho
would be aMe to succor his comrades.
Mr. Braiig-I Hud that thow who
were not there know very much more
about it than those who were.
Mr. Steele In reply to that I have
rt.a.1 the reports of as distinguished
soldiers as ever did battle for any
cause, who were there.
The comm t:ee then rose and the
House adjourned.

national Legislatures and the people
generally in regard to tue dairy inter
ests of the country and the ha-m like
ly to accrue to it fion the manufacture
of what the circular calls "fraudulent
imitations cf butter." Tbe circular
gives a detailed statement c f the value
of tbe dairy product of tbe country.
according to the last United States
census. Ihe figures include the value
cf bultsr and cheese manufactured
annually, the value of milk consumed
in other wayr, the value'of milch cows
and the money inves'ed in dairy ap
paratus and machinery. To these fig
ures is added 25 per cent, increaae for
tne last six years, which is a low esu
mate, and tbe ntals now devoted to
dairy purposes the ciicular nuts at
13,053,503,474. This vast industry is
disturbed, embarrassed and threat
ened with destruction, the circular
fays, by "a stupendous fraud which
employs a few thousand men, with a
plant not exceeding J-VOOO0O
and turning out about 00, Ck 0,000
pounds of product, worth in money
(supposing it to be wholesome f od)

to lie in the ''fraudulent fa e" of th s
product, which "noboiy wants fo eat.
