message in 1853, to show that the Democratic
doctrine had then guarded the independence of the Executive as a wholesome check on legislation. He declared that a system of terrorism prevailed in the South, which is now resulting in the migration therefrom of people whose labor is necessary to cultivate the fields. He alleged that the the Democrats expected, by this legislation, to fraudulently control the election of the next President. Mr. Beck followed, saying the South to-day was represented by men who were the peers of any gentlemen on the other side. The Democracy was warned of the appeal to Csesar. They intended to appeal to the peo* * - -p? a. pie belore Lesar comes?oeiore tuo uumwu is crossed?ind the cry is "Alleajaetaia e?t /" It is to prevent Csesar from coming that they desire the soldiers to be taken from the polls. Mr. Beck continued at considerable length, defending the Democratic party from the accusations of its opponents, and declared that they were true friends of the colored race. He argued earnestly against the danger of relying on the army to enforce the laws, say? ing that the best warrant for makiug and maintaining just laws was an enlightened public opinion. In the House, immediately after the reading of the journal, the Speaker proceeded to --11 Mnnula TKo nnlV IflYnrt, C&ll UUlUllllWVCCO lUi io^viwi *?v ?r submitted was from the committee on accounts relative to committee clerks. This report was adopted, and the House proceeded to the consideration of the Senate bill for the ^ purchase or construction of a refrigerating ship for the disinfection of vessels and cargoes. Mr. Chalmers, rising to a question of privilege, asked for an investigation by the, House of his conduct at the battle of Fort Pillow. He made the request because of certain uncomplimentary allusions made to him by Congressman Butterworth in a recent speech at Cincinnati. Action on the request was deferred for a day or two. The House then, in committee of the whole, took up the legislative and appropriation bill. The pending question being Mr. Bragg's motion to insert a clause repealing the law creating the Southern Claims Commission, and a substitute therefor offered by Young, of Tennessee, abolishing the Commission, but transferring all claims now pending before it to the Court of Claims, an animated debate followed, . which was participated in by Mr. Bragg, who advocated his proposition, and by Mr. Xiefer, of Ohio, who claimed that the Court should not be interfered with, but allowed to die by limitation, as it would do in March, 1880, and by Messrs. Atkins, Baker, Young of Tennessee, White, Garfield and others. The dis* * - * at. - cussion raDged into a general question 01 me payment of the Southern claims and the manner thereof. Finally, Mr. Bragg's amendment was rejected by a vote of 65 to 112. Mr. Springer offered an amendment abolishing the Southern Claims Commission and providing that any person who may have claims against the United States of which the Court of Claims would not now have jurisdiction, but founded on equity and justice and not barred by limitation, may file his plea in the Court of Claims. It further provides that the court shall report its finding to Congress and Congress shall not allow or authorize the payment of any private claim not payable under the existing law until the claim has been investigated by the Court of Claims. Debate followed and the committee rose without action. Jn the Senate on the 16th, the consideration of the army bill was resumed. Mr. Beck said the Democrats were determiued on their first access to power to repeal all laws passed in time of war unsuitable to the time of peace, and forming dangerous precedents which would become the fundamental princi?*. ftf nrnvornniont if lpff. pica ui vui ojomiu v* gv * vk m?mvmv alone. He quoted freely from historical au thorities to show the pernicious results of military interference with civil functions, and to refute the assertion of Mr. Hoar that money had not been withheld by the Commons to force the King's consent to legislation. He said rather than have the army used as it had been, and as it might be again, he would favor its abolition, aud establish a militia. Mr. Dawes followed in opposition to the pending measure. During his speech, he yielded to Mr. Butler, of South Carolina, who stated that his colleague, Wade Hampton, was present, and ready to take his seat. Mr. Hampton, on crutches, was led forward by Mr. Butler, and sworn in by the President pro tem., Mr. Thurman, taking the modified oath. In the House, under the call of committees, Mr. Stephens, of Georgia, chairman of the committee on coinage, weights and measures, reported a bill for the interchange of subsidiary coin for legal tender money in sums of ten dollars and multiples thereof, and making such coin legal tender in all sums not exceeding twenty dollars. The report of the committee states that the bill is based upon petitions referred to the committee. Mr. Conger, of Michigan, raised the point of order that no bill on the subject had been referred to the committee, and that * therefore the committee had no right to make a report The House, in committee of the whole, resumed the consideration of the legislative appropriation bill. After discussion, the amendment to repeal, after March, 1880, the acts creating the Southern Claims Commission, and to transfer to the Court of Claims all cases then pending before the commission, was rejected. The committee disposed of all the bill except the portions specially reserved for general discussion, being the provisions in respect to the mode of selecting grand and petit jurors, repealing the jurors' test oath, aud also in respect to Supervisors of elections aud Deputy Marshals. ^ ' The debate commenced. Mr. Lewis, of Ala. baraa, made a legal argument against the election laws, and denied that the "South was solid" for any illegal or unconstitutional purpose, or out of antagonism to the North, j Sam. Ford, of Alabama, also argued upon the necessity and justice of repealing the jurors' test oath and modifying the Supervisors j of elections. In the Senate on the 17th, at the expiration of the morning hour, the array appropriation was taken up, Mr. Morgan, of Alabama, being entitled to the floor. Mr. Morgan said that hereafter he intended to speak in vindication of the attitude of Southern members of Congress which had been the object of much unjust aspersion. The South was not responsible for the existence of the question now agitating the public. He had considered it best at present to yield to his friend from Indiana, (Mr. Voorhees.) Mr. Voorhees called attention to what he feared was ft not generally realized, namely, that Federal interference extended not only to Congressional, but to all State and local elections. American citizens, by thus haviug overseers put over them, were reduced to the condition of slaves. Mr. Voorhees detailed the system of election laws and pointed out the provisk" ions therein as dangerous to free ballot. Usurpers always take advantage of such laws. Already our people have seen them used to defeat the popular will. Csesar sent emis-1 saries into provinces to incite disturbances as an excuse to use the army to keep the peace. The same thing might be done and had been done by the President of the United S.tates. Mr. Teller followed and said the Democrats had, until now, sustained the veto power of the President The proper place to test the validity of the law was in the courts. The Democratic cry for free ballot was inconsistent as all the election frauds for the' last thirty years have been to the advantage of the .Democratic party. He concluded by citing evidence heard by the Teller committee as proof of the correctness and justice of his argument In the House, the bill reported on the pre vious day from tne committee on coinage, weights *nd measures, to provide for the exchange of subsidiary silver coins for legal tender money, and to make such coins legal tender in all sums not exceeding S10, after discussion, went over. While the House was in committee of the whole on legislative bills, Mr. Kelly made a speech against the policy of attempting to coerce the President into signing the appropriation bills. He warned the Democratic party that if it attempted to over-ride the veto in any other than a constitutional way, it will be trampled under the feet of an indignant people. He said he would vote for the repeal of the test oath for jurors if before the House, as a separate measure. Mr. Carlisle followed. In his remarks he said : Disclaiming any'intention to make an appeal to the passions, disclaiming any intention to excite p&rtisan feeling of to distract the judgment of the people's repre[ sentatives on this very exciting question, I -t 'J. a !_ say to the gentlemen on tne otner siae, not iu any spirit of arrogance or dictation, but with all the deliberation and earnestness which the gravity of this great subject demands, that these laws must be repealed, and that this power of the Executive to control the election of the people's representatives must be taken away. [Applause on the Democratic side.] In the Senate on the 18th during a discussion of the army appropriation bill, Mr. Randolph spoke, alluding to prominent events in the early history of his State, significant as showing a predominance then of a spirit of resistance to unjust laws, which now appears in the proposed repeal of the laws authorizing military interference in civil affairs. He said that in 1876, he bore a message from Governor, now Senator Hampton, to Gen. Grant, then President, requesting* him to ' ? - * .l. o a n i:?? witnaraw nis troops irorn tuts ouuiu vaiwma State House, in deference to the decision of the Supreme and of the highest Court of that State. Imagine my astonishment and indignation, said Mr. Randolph, when in an angry tone and uncivil manner the President replied: "I won't withdraw the troops. I don't regard the decision of the Supreme Court, and if I had any message to send to Governor Hampton it would be that his message to me was impertinence." Several Senators incidentally spoke against the practice of lists being prepared of Senators who desired to speak on a pending question. Mr. Bayard said he proposed to address the Senate and country at length upon the proposed legislation. Senator Morgan also indicated his intention to speak, and said Southern representatives regarded these as consitutional questions, rather than m rs affecting the recent disturbances between the North and the South, and their future influence on the destinies of this great country. They had an equal interest with other sections in the development of the true glory of the American Union, nation or government, and were desirous of assisting in the management of the government of the people for the people aod by the people. They did not attempt to repeal war measures for the benefit of the South. They preferred to outlive the effects, and were here to day because of their patient course in obedience to the law. Mr. Groome referred to the acts of Generals Dix and Schenck in connection with the affairs in Maryland in 1851, and at other periods as showing to what lengths the army had gone in abuse of the rights of free people. The House set aside all business of a private character and went into committee of the whole on the legislative appropriation bill, aod was addressed by Mr. McKinley, of Ohio, in opposition to the proposed legislation to repeal the Federal election laws. He denounced that legislation as a bold and wanton attempt to wipe from the law every protection of the ballot-box, and to surrender it into the unholy hands of hired repeaters and ballot-box stufiers at the North, and "tissue ballot" cheats at the South. Mr. House, of Tennessee, followed, expressing his astonishment that any man would be found willing that the Federal election law should be retained on the statute book. He defended the Southern representatives from charges of falsity to their obligations. Mr. Burrows, of Michigan, advocated the retention of the election laws. He asserted that the negroes in Louisiana were fleeing from oppression, and couched bis declarations in very strong lsuguage. Mr. Gibson, of Louisiana, made several efforts to get in a disclaimer of the statements, but Mr. Burrows declined to yield. The debate became very animated, the speaker assailing the Democratic party in the House whom he styled conspirators. At the conclusion of his remarks, Messrs. Gibson and Elam both warmly denied the charge that citizens of Louisiana were intimidated voters. In the House cn the 19th, after the*reading of the journal, the subsidiary coins bill came up as the unfinished business of the morning hour. Mr. Warner, of Ohio, moved to amend the 3d section which makes silver coins a legal tender (to the amount of ten dollars) by adding the words for all debts, public and private. The measure was considered at somejength, and numerous amendments were considered and acted upon. Mr. Garfield's amendment to substitute the words "lawful money of the United States" for "legal tender money," and Mr. Springer's amendment, making subsidiary coin a legal tender to the amount of $20, were agreed to. Before the final disposition of the bill the morning hour expired and the bill went over to Tuesday. The House then went intocom_ r ii. i nmi.ee ui me wiiuie uu me legislative upjmi- i priation bill, and at 4.45 P. M., adjourned ! until Monday. The Recent Tornado.?The tornado which desolated Walterboro, was only a local development of a great meteorological disturbance, which extended from Florida to Maine, and reached inlaud as far as Alabama and Western Pennsylvania. The first trace of the storm to be discovered, from the telegraphic reports, was on Wednesday morning at Fernandina, where several houses were | blown down, cars were blown from the track, j and there was a deluge of rain. The wind and ! rain were severe all through northern Florida and southern Georgia, washing up the railroad tracks so as to greatly interfere with the mails. The storm seems to have been traveling west and to have turned up Chattahoochee River, for we next hear of it at Otho, Henry County, Alabama, where it played havoc. with the houses and killed two people, and I next we hear of it in Lee county, where it crossed over into Georgia, and turning eastward again crossed the State of Georgia doing great damage to crops and railroads, ana thence into South Carolina, striking first at Aiken and along the South Carolina Railroad until it reached the Edisto, and then following nearly the course of that river, struck its severest blow at Walterboro'. It came within ten miles of Charleston and then glanced off again, striking with great force at Oakley, and thence apparently went out to sea late in the afternoon of the 16th. On the 18th two tidal waves are reported at Gloucester, Mass., and heavy rains and high winds on all the New England coast, with deep snow in the interior of New England and Now Ynrt There were heavy rains and high winds in New Jersey and Pennsylvania on the same.?New and Courier. To think clearly and act quickly, one must have good health. Indigestion is the foe of health and should at once be driven from the system by the regular use of Dr. Bull's Baltimore Pills.
