Chicago, May 1.?Duringtue early weeks
of soring the "anticipations for building
this reason were roe-colored to a degree
tottering on enthusiasm. May-day, however,
has come around without any very
notable boom in that line of work, and
there is every reason now to predict that as
Ions as brick is held bv the manufacturers
at $!:? a thousand, and lumber keeps adTancing
in ratio with the increased demand
for building mechanics-, those canJemplaiinj:
the erection of buildings will refrain
from operations for at least the present
season. At a meeting of the lumber
dealers and manufacturers a few days
aj:o the price-list was revised and a
few ficun s added. The price of A partition,
D. and M.. two sidts. four beads, was ad
vantx-d from $U5 to $57. The brick manufacturers
have also' been in consultation
during the past week, and have determined,
if r.ot to raise rates, at least to hold
old prices. Then, too, a number of mechanio,
in various lines of trade, desirous
cf taking time by the forelock, have recently
made known their determination to
strike fr.r increase of wages, provided their
demands are not complied with. Hence
the boom anticipated some weeks a^o in
troilding operations in Chicago has not yet
teen realized, nor is it apt to be duriug the
>*fM-nt summer. The architects, however,
uutinue busy, with a large utock of combed
work on hand, and the books at the
vSkoo! thecitv buildingdepartrnent show
-?rr tlie past week tuoro tuan an average list
oi notable i>ermits.

"Washington, May 1.?In the Senate, M
AHiaori introduced a bill, pro?idiugfor tf
construction of the Illinois and Misslssip]
river canal. It authorizes an iinmedia
survey under the direction of the Secretin
of War. It is to have a capacity for vessa
ol 260 tons burthen.
There was an exciting debate in the Sei
ate. without definite action, over the bill I
repeal discrimination against ex-Confede
ates iu appointment in the regular army.
Mr. Edmunds, of the judiciary commi
tee, reported that the President has amp!
power to use the federal troops and civ
authorities to suppress the cow-boy ou
rages in Arizona.*
In the House a resolution was adopte<
designating the 9th of May for the consl
eration of the bill providing for the extci
sion of the charters of national banks.
The House passed the following speci
appropriation bills for the erection of pu
lie buildings: $<>00,000 at Detroit; $000,04
at Denver, $100,000 at Lynchburg, $223,01
at Peoria, and $123,000 at Galveston. Tl

The OutbrcHk lo be I'm Down.
Washington*, May 1.?The President h:
decided to put down the Indian outbret
in Arizona as soon as possible; he so e
pressed himself to the Secretai
<jf War. who has been instruct
to take prompt and vigorous measures
that end. Orders have been issued for a
ditional troops to proceed to the scei
of trouble in Arizona and to aid tl
troops therein in prevening any forth
acts of violence and bring the hostiles tn
speedy justice. These re-inforeemvnls w
consist of the 1st Infantry, now in Tex:
the 4th Infantry, now in the Departme
of the Platte, and part of tl
Oth Cavalrv, now in the r>epai
men t of Missouri. The Preside
is earnest in the matter and, in the wor
of a prominent army oflieer, intends
make a clean sweep of the red de-vils. T!
probabilities are that the troops
Arizona and New Mexico will be unit
in oue command, under a brigadier gen<

as follows: "I know nothing of the meu

ever in the company, ami with no expect;

Shortly after he (Shipherd) scut witne'a

Witness continued: "So far as I knov
the affair of Shipherd had no iufluenc
whatever upon the policy of the Govern
meut, and never had the effect to alter o
change it in any conceivable degree."
u itness then alluded to the interview
with Secretary Blaine, which took place ot
the2othand 2Gth of July, and added "
have iio desire to go over in detail wha
occurred at those interviews, unless it b<
the wish of the committee that I shall dc

Shipherd make any mention in the pres

in my presence, of his "having made ai

mentioned having received many com urn

'n relation to his (Llair'h) letter to Ship

ft could not be extracted without ?v_

Further wo learned that a very persistant

rather critical wound, let It happen as it may
