In the Senate, yesterday, Cain in- t
troduced a concurrent resolution to t
postpono the day of adjournment I
from March 1st to March 15th. s
During the debate that ensued, Jillson t
spoke in favor of the resolution, say ,
ing duty called on then to finish the c
business before leving, and he was I
even willing that no per diem should
be drawn after the 1st of March. v
This was decided unconstitutional by c
Oorbin. Leslie spoke against it. Ile
said they had staid here chartering
churohes and hook and ladder coipa- c
nics till they had spent $200,000, and t
if their constituents held him to no- E
count, not one would ever ee the t
legislativo halls again. Ile thought v
the appropriation bill enough to i
damn the whole Republican party. 8
Nash wanted to stay till July, or t
root out corruption, and find why 1
$100,000 more than had been appro- v
priated has boon drawn for the land I
commissioners. These remarks in- e
volved the commissoner in a net that I
lie could only extricate himself from a
1-v threntoning to makn fellow sena- a
- who %%Ore iostly lia agents, 0
wombiu and quake by exposing his I
reasons for resigning his commimion. a
Johnson said that he had never re- a
ceived an agency, as lie was most too t
honest for him. Leslie even dared to t
compare the State to her former con- v
dition, under the old regime. C
The most of the day was spent over c
the appropriation bill.

Prouide, a young Englishman of somne
means and good standing. Do Portoe

a duel fought with pistols, b! Senor I
do Conto, editor of the Spatmsh jour
nal El Conista. The origin of the
present dual was a slur thrown Ly ,
Proude upon the Cuban Junta, who,
he intimated, were living like cowards ,e
on the struggles of the patriots. The i
fight was arranged to take place in a
room in a fashionable house ini West
Nineteenth street, and thither, at a
late hour Sunday night the combat' e
ants, with their friends, repaired. By i.
two o'eleok, a. m. all preliminaries a
were completed. Admirable sword- a
manship was dipae, the cuts being E
rapid, well dirotd and parried with
precision. After about ten minutes i
Rghtin gboth were wounded. Proude ,
receiving a severe cut on the right 'j
shoulder, causing a wound some give e
inces in length and about one and a
half ini depthi. Ills sword arm was a
disabled. Suissequently, the parties s
ihook hands, and the wounds were ox- g
imined. That 10filoted on Do Porte,
though some eight inches in length,
was scarcely a quarter of an inch in J
iepth, while Proude's was of a serious I
sharaoter, the blood streaming from it Il
