It was evident several days ago that sil ver was on top in the Senate, aud after the speech of Senator Ingalls in fuvor of free coinage, which was In many respects tbe ablset and most brilliant ever delivered by that extruordonanly brilliant man, no power on earth could have stemmed the tide. It wus all In vain that Senator Gor man, the Democratic leader, who probably regretted when too late the part be and many members ot his party bad taken to bring about the present situation, attempt ed to stem the silver flood by proposing an amendment which would result in shut ting out silver produced in loreign coun tries. The die was cast, npd, as far as Ihe Senate can compel It to do so, this country bat thrown down the gauntlet to ihe en tire financial world, and proposes lo make silver tbe equal of gold in every respect in mis country, whatever may be tbe coo sequences, "" ' ------ Mr. B!aiue ha a right to feel pioud of the sentiment which the action of the British Government, In attempting to Ig nore the cxccinive branch of this Govern ment by iipnling to the I'uited State Supreme Court for help bus evoked. It was ihe ot,e thing needed to solidify American sentiment In support of the stand taken by tho administration. To day Congress Is practically a unit in tup port of Mr. Blaine, whereas there had been a dlsHsition previously among Dem ocrats to sneer at Mr. Blaine's methods of conducting the Bearing He negotiations. Tbe sentiment now existing among Dem ocrats may be judged by the action of Representative Enb-e, of Tennessee, who bas introduced a resolution In ih House reciting the action of the British Govern ment and declining that this action is in derogation ol tbe dignity of the United States, snd providing that a copy of this resolution shall be sent to ihe British Gov ernment. General Hooker, one of the oldest Democratic members of the House committee on foreign affairs, sajs: "Mr. Blaine will come out all right. I have great confidence In blm. I differ with him in politics, but have great confidence In bis ability to manage anything he un dertakes." The Home committee on the World's Fair have agreed upon report which fa vors more care in the expeoditnre ol money by the commission and a reduction io tbe number as well as tbe salaries ql ihe employes. Everything in coone i 0 with tbe exposition is moving along nlcelj and points to s general succ.-ss. Postmaster-General Wanamaker bat, st the direction of tbo Preudent, abolished tbe postofllce at Catharine, Alabama, be cause ol the action of some of the citi zens of that place driving tbe Republican postmaster swuy from his office.

Senator Quay's new election bill provid ing for tbe tutpeotion of tbe writ of h beat c rpus, and tbe use of the aimy and navy whenever necessary, In the Presl. dent's discretion, to prevent fraud or force at tbe polls, I disturbing the Democrat very much. Those who ought to know say there Is not the slightest probability that tree coin age will get through the bouse at this ses sion; but its friends are nevertheless nuk lug a most determined effort in thst direc tion. Tbe Federal election bill has agsln by V vote of 34 to 8H become the unfinished business of the Senate.
