REFUNDING. Result of Another Day's Consideration. HOUSE. Washington, January 15. The House went Into Committee of the Whole (Mr. Covert, ot New York, In Ibe chair) on the funding bill, all debate on the first Motion and amendment! thereto being limited to ten minutes. The pending amendment was that offered Thursday, by Mr. Anderson, Mr. Price Inqulrel of Mr. Anderson what he expected to accomplish by ttls amendment, which provided for the re tirement of the National bank notes and for the Issue of currency notes. Mr, Anderson replied that by issuing currency notes, when National bank notes shonld have been retired, the country would have gained thlf that the United Btatea would be the only power having anything to do with the money of Ihe country. Mr. Frye gave notice of a substitute which he proposed to offer for the first seotion, providing for the Issue of bonds and Treasury notes to the amount of 1020,000,000, bearing S'j per cent. In terest, and redeemable alter one year. Mr. Anderson's amendment was then rejected 46 to 108. The next amendment was that offered by Mr. Dlbrell imposing an income tax, the revenue of which shall be exclusively used for the payment of the bonds and notes heroin authorized to be is sued. The tax is fixed at 8 per cent, on all net Incomes of over $3,500 and undor $5,000, and at 4 per cent, on all net Incomes of $5,000 and oven- Messrs. F. Wood, of New York, and Frye, of Maine, raised the point ot order that the amend ment was not germane; and was substantially similar to bills pending before the house. The Chair sustained the point of order, and the amendment was not admitted. Mr. Phillips offered an amendment providing that certificates shall be issued In denominations of $10, $20 and $59, either registered or coupon. Adopted. Mr. Carlisle offered an amendment authorizing the Secretary of the Treasury to make suitable rules and regulations to carry this act Into effect, providing that the expense of disposing of bonds and certificates shall not exceed i of 1 per cent, Mr. Clafiln moved to amend by making It of 1 per cent. Mr. Randall and F. Wood approved the amendment. Mr, Frye said the committee had done a mar velous thing In providing short-time 3 per cent, bond. It seemed to him there was a determined purpose on the other side of the House and on the part of the gantleman from Iowa (Weaver) to break down all possibilities of any funding opera tlons, and to press through a bill with such amendments as to prevent all success on the part of the Beoretary of the Treasury. Mr. Weaver You hit me right. Mr. Cox denied that any snoh move existed on his side of the House, as the gentleman from Maine surmised. Mr. Frye suggested that he had bit Weaver right Mr, Cox replied that he only spoke for the gen tleman from New York (himself) and those who sat around him. He wanted this bill so guarded that It would not be subject to the Interpretation of the bill providing for four and four and out half per cents. Syndicates at that 'lmebad re ceived three, three and one half and even four per cent,, though the bill only allowed one half of one per cent. He did not want any Intervention between the Government and the people. Mr. Haskell Intimated that It was the purpose of the other side to fool the people, and thrust out a miserable pretense of a funding bill, when every banker and business man knew that a three per cent, bond could not be negotiated success fully. Mr. Randall said If he thought one half r f one per cent, were essential he would willingly pay It but he did not consider It necessary. Mr. Claflln's amendment waa rejected and Mr. Carlisle's adopted. Mr. Carlisle moved to strike oat the fourth seo tion of the bill, and Insert an amendment author izing the Beoretary of the Treasury to use, if he deems It necefaary, not exceeding $50,000,000 of the standard gold and silver coin In the Treasury in the redemption of 6 and 6 per cent, bonds o' the United States authorized to be refunded by this act, and to apply the surplus money in the Treasury In the purchase or redemption of Uo lted States bonds ; provided the bonds so purchased or redeemed shall corstttute no part of the sinking fund, but shall be cancelled. The a mendment wai adopted, Mr. Hutfihtns mrtved to sti-llto nltt thn fifth vo. tlon of the bill, de did not believe the loan Could be negotiated at 8 per cent. No man on tnie noor would invest in those bonds at three 3 per cent. If there was any let him rise. He Hutchlns did sot believe the average American, was more patriotic than a member of Congress' and would take those 3 per oeut. bonds out of patriotism, If Congreia made the attempt and failed, and provided, as was proposed In this firth section, that from and after May 1, 1881, the 8 per cent, bonds shall be the only bonds receivable as security for the National Bank rtirnulniinn tho Government would find Itself In this pcsltlon, wai wunin rour months there must be a contrac tion of the ourrencv to the extnnt nf mri aim . 000,000. The House was;play tng around a powder magazine wun matones. it was putting it In the power of banks and moneyed men to bring about such a oalamltv and flnannl.i never been seen. He did not believe the bonds coma be floated. He did not believe any man In the money centers thought tbev oould he. and t Congress proposed to try the experiment. It should not do so. Mr. F, Wood said he differed In hli views very muoh from hli colleague Hutebins, He Wood for one would never concede the right of any moneyed corporation to dictate to the Govern ment what It shonld or shonld not An nn tha .nh. Jeot of Its own oredlt and Its own money. He did uoi oeiieve u was absolutely necessary to takes Into consideration the fant whnthnr k.k would take those bonds. , Congrf s wu not lo be um ai wreau nor intimidated by Innuen does. No depression tn the money market would or oould be made in oor,sannna nf k. of this bill, but It would strengthen the publlo uiouh. uii liongresi ao what was right, and the banks would do what waa profitable. He ooa demned the shameful policy of the Government In asking and bumbly beseeching syndicate s and banks and capitalists In Europe and New York to be so kind as to take tha a and iu ni nan knn1a applause on the Democratic side. The lime had kiiyou wueu unoie Bam was a stalwartand stood Upon his Imperial nower. Ha IWnndi never consent in the last expiring hours ot a pub llo life for forty yean that thli great country should hawk Its oredlt in the money markets of iud worm, i applause. J Mr. Carlisle moved to strikn nut tho fuih.t.nn and Insert In lieu thereof a proviso that after May looi, me o por cent, bonds authorized by this act shall be the ot lv bonds ranoivohio &AAnn the.Natlonal bank circulation or as security for the safe keeping of publlo deposits; but that when suoh bonds deposited shall he do.ian.iod r. chase or redemption that banks who deposit the ..mo anaii nave the right to substitute othei bonds of the United States; provided further that no bonds on whioh interest baa ceased shall be at oepted or continue on deposit for aeourity for the olroulatlon or safe keeping of publlo money, and In case bonds so deposited shall not be withdrawn within thirty days after the Interest has ceased, the banking essoclatlon anali be subject to the liabilities provided bv section umi nHh u...j Statutes.

Indtanapolii Journal. The late act of Congress providing for the pay ment of "arrears of pensions" Is a pointed Illus tration of modern statesmanship. The arrears of pensions were not asked for by the soldiers to any considerable extent, and the repntab'.e newspapers of all parties fearlessly expoPed the costly claptrap ol demagogues to catch soldier votes, but the demagogues ot one bide presented the bill and the demagogue! or the other side plunged Into Its support to outstrip their expo nents In the sheerest mockery of patriotism. Eaoh side hoped that the other would defeat the confessedly profligate measure, but both disap pointed each other. The bill bas been In opera tion some two year; nearly half a million In claims have been filed; tens of millions have been paid, and the estimate of the Pension Bu reau now is that it will require fonr hundred millions to pay the "at rears of pensions" under the law not lecs than one hundred millions of which, It Is calculated, will be literally stolen from the Government.

"When went there by a time since the flood that the fate of Rome depended upon one man f When could they say, t hat talked of Rome, till bow, that ber wide walls enoompasaed but one manf" Thus wrote Bhakspeare, without any theught probably of the Empire State and Roteoe Conkllng, Here is a State of five million Inhab itants, the wealthiest and proudest of the whole galaxy, sitting, as It were, on a log, patiently waiting for the Imperial Conkllog, who bestrides it like a colotius, to tell it who to eleot as his col league to the United 8tatei Senate.

This tariff question will not stay down, In spite of the efforts of the politicians to nppreas It and of the monopolist! to maintain Its abuses, no matter what party may be In the majority. It thrusts Its front already Into the very first move ment! or the Republicans for the organization of the next Congress, In the next Congress Mr John A. Kasson, of Icwa, li a favorite of the Re publican! for Speaker of the House, and he will receive a hearty support from the Republican members of that section. But when In Congress Mr. Kasson cast some vote! which make him an object of muoh suspicion among the protection ists of the East. He Is In fact a mild tariff refor mer and will be supported by the Western Re publicans with none the loss zeal on that account. The Eastern Protectionists are la favor of Wm. D. Kelley, who hai earned their lupport and con fidence by long yean of sorvlce, If made Speak er, Kelley would organize the committee of Ways and Means so as to stifle every effort to reform the most glaring abuses of the present system. For this reason be will meet with a determined op position from tha Republicans of the West, and thus a bitter tariff conflict will arise in the bosom of the Republican party, notwithstanding the efforts to keep the party a unit on this question. -Rarrtisburg Patriot, OLD SIMON CAMERON AS A BOLTER AND BRIBER AND BRIBER [ Philadelphia Press.] At the session of 1845 there were 132 members In the Legislature, requiring (7 votes to elect a Senator. The Democrats having been In a ma jority, G, W. Woodard was their regular caucus nominee. Simon Cameron, who was then acting with the Democrats, waa also a candidate. In the Joint oonveutlou thirty-three men were voted for Woodward received 54 vote! on first ballot ; Com eron, 11 ; Jami s Cooper, a Whig, 11 ; John Bat, is, Whig, 10 votes, and others receiving from one to seven votes each. On the fifth ballot Mr. Cameron received 67 votes, and waa elected over Wood ward, the regular caucus nominee, by a combina tion or all the Whigs and a few bolting Democrats. That was General Cameron's first election to the Culled States Senate. At the Benatorlal.struggle In 1857 the Democrat! hdd a majnrity on Joint ballot. John W. Forney wu then the regular cai'ct s nominee of the Democratic party, but seven members who bad voted for Henry D. FoUer kicked against the nomination and made a bolt. When the Joint convention of the Legislature was held, January 13th o( that year, three Democrats, namely, Lebo, Mauler aud Wagouseller, voted with sixty four Republlcais aud elected Blmon Cameron, who was then the caucus nominee of the Republican party, and received Just the number of votes nee essary to an election, namely, sixty seven, a ma jority of the joint convention. AND BRIBER [ Philadelphia Press.] JOHN M' SWEENEY. Cleveland, January 13, 1881 To the Editor of the Euquirr. In the letter of your Columbus correspondent of the 6th lt.Bt, I find the following paragraph : "Men like John Mciweeny, who is eager to gobble np the honors, but who refnss to make a Democratic speech unless he Is paid lor It. Henry B. Payne when he ran for Cougress, paid Mc8weeney $500 to make two speeches In Cleveland." This charge Is absolutely and unqualifiedly un true, and Is cruelly unjust to the unselfish and eioquent orator, who for more than thirty years la this and the adjoining States, has gratuitously rendered invaluable services to the Democratic party. He has often come to the assistance of Cleveland Democrats when olber speakers passed them by; and In my Congrei slonal canvass of 1874 he gallantly responded to my Invitation, and on the "night before the battle," In a drenching rain for more than two hours held an Immense audi ence spall-bound by the most brilliant and effect ive speech delivered in our city. He would not have demeaned himself, nor would I have Insult ed him by offering him a pecuniary compensation for such services. Equally unfounded Is the imputation of his eagerness for office. He haspeislstantly and even obstinately refused all nominations for State offices, e se the Cuyahoga Democracy would glad ly have testified by their united vote to their grateful appreciation of services rendered, and also their admiration of bis high character and eminent abilities, Cleveland, January 13, 1881 H.
