THE SPEAKERSHIP,
A LITTLE MORE QUIET.
Special Dltoatch to The lYlbune.
Washington, D. C., March 11.—The Speaker
ship campaign today has bean vary quiet. Thus
far It has beau mainly conducted on paper.
Thera ore few Congressman hare, and there Is
no doubt as to their opinions. Tiio persons
who compose the uncertain element have not
yet arrived. Mr. Randall has not jot formerly
oncDcd his headquarters, although he Is hourly
expected to do so. The story that Randall Uto
receive help from Republicans is circulated by
Grccnbackcrs and the Blackburn men. Tim re
port is baseless. If the contest should bo
thrown Into the House, and the Republicans bo
compelled to choose between Randall and a
Greenback Democrat,
TIIBRB WOULD SB HO HESITATION;
but no such contingency will bo likely to arise.
Tjie Republicans oro not disposed to assume any
responsibility la the organization of the House,
or to enter into any entangling' alliances. They
Generally acknowledge that the Democracy
should be left to manage its own affairs In Its
own way,'and to accept the entire responsibility.
Blackburn expects the rotes of the Tammany
Democrats and the influence of John Kelley as
on offset to that of Tilden. Blackburn also ex
pects the help of Wallace In Pennsylvania, the
latter being a long-time personal nod political
enemy of Randall.
, The contest Is likely to bo animated by
Thursday. The Southern men are not content
to allow the Northern Democrats to soy that It
will not do to allow a Southern man to he
Speaker. The Southern men. an the contrary,
Insist that now Is the time to assert themselves.
The New York World, In an article to-day
that excites surprise In the R andall camp,
SIDES WITH TUB SOUTUURNERS,
and says in tiio House the Southern Democrats
will number no less than 103 out of tbo 143
Democrats elected to that body* and yet thcro
arc Northern Democrats who venture openly
to assert that a Speaker cannot bo safely
taken from a body constituting two-thirds
of the whole Democratic representation
it would certainly bo a most unique exhibition
of self-abasement and self-stultification If 100
Southern Democratic members of tlio American
'House of Representatives should present them*
selves before less than half their number of
Northern Democrats, like the burghers of Calais,
on bended knees with ropes about their necks,
confess their unworthlncss to bo honored or
trusted, and entreat their Northern fellow-mem
bers to otdor the House and all its business in
the light of their own superior wisdom and
patriotism. Any Northern Democrat who
thinks the Southern Democrats ought thus to
disport themselves simply admits that the
Democratic party ought not to have been called
under the Constitution to control the legislation
of the land.
DEMOCRATIC BEUNDEUS.
or WHICH TUB EXTRA SESSION IS ONE.
Ectclal Dltpalch to Tht Tribune.
Washington, D. 0., March It.—A prominent
Democratic Senator admitted to-day that the
Democracy has lost its chances of success In
1880 by a series of blunders, of which the extra
session Is the greatest. This feeling will be
rooro manifest as It becomes moro apparent
that nothing Is to bo accomplished by the extra
session. The Democratic leaders ora not cer
tain of their ability to repeal tho Election laws.
Some of tho more thoughtful aro certain that
they cannot, uud that tho extra session simply
means another failure, os tho extra session of
lost year did, which was to have seen the army
reduced in numbers and In pay, and the entire
system reorganized. Tho army stands to-day
as It did before that threatening extra session.
Indeed, the most serious thoughts of the moro
couservativo Democratic leaders 1s that they are
not yet able to measure the great dimensions of
their failure.
ANornin omission.
Tbo Inability of the Democrats successfully to
conduct the simplest legislation becomes ap
parent with every session. No session of Con
gress has passed since they have bad control, of
the llouso that some extraordinary blunder In
legislation bas not been committed. The Dem
ocrats have claimed (treat credit for bavin?
passed tbo smallest Sundry Civil bill that bas
been passed for years. Tbls Is tbo same old cry
tbti year. It Is the courts that bavo to suffer to
allow tbo Democrats to claim that they bavo
worked great economics. An examination of
the bill os passed shows tbat tbo entire appro
priation for the courts, $3,000,000, has been
omitted. Unless tbls shall bo appropriated at
tlm extra session, the courts will bo compelled
to suspend operations July 1 next.-
stietj harping. •
TUB I'ABSIDBNTIAL TITLE.
ajucial ZMuptifcA to ns TYibunt.
Washington, D. C., March U.—Some of the
extreme Democrats are considering the subject
of continuing Ibcir attack upon the title of the
President- during tbo Forty-sixth Congress.
Two measures are In contemplation, and tbo in
dications are that both will receive strong sup
port. Quo is to order a new committee charged
■with the general subject intrusted to Potter
and bis associates, with the purpose, as ex
presssd ny an active D|mocrat, “to keep dig-
glng about tlic title.” Tlic other plan con*
templates a report from the Judlilnry Commit*
tee of thu House based on consideration of the
evidence already taken In the last Con*
(Tress Hint Hayes was hot legally
elected, and that Tildcn wnsi It Is not
the present part of the plan to declare
that title as obtained through the action of the
Electoral Commission, and ratified by tfic vote
of the Joint convention, Is not valid. The main
Idea appears to bo to keep the question of the
litlo ami charge of fraud In connection with it a
live question with tho Democracy until I9SO.
One of tlio curious Ideas bold lu regard to this
matter among a certain class of Democrats Is
that lliey will bo bolter able to restrain the
President In this way than by any otlicr moans
at tbclr control.
TWO CONGRI2S9MKN.
incut OPINIONS.
Special Dltpalch to The Tribune.
Font Watnc, Ind., March 11.—The Sml/nsl
this evening publishes Interview* with cx-Con
gressman: Hamilton, who bos just returned
homo,,aqd W. 0. Colerlck, Mr. Hamilton's suc
cessor, regarding the-Speakership ami other
topics. Mr. Hamilton is opposed to Randall for
many reasons. Ho would not vole for him if ho
was a member ot tbo Forty-sixth Congress. Ho
Is at a Joss to say who would bo tho best man
for that position. Ho thinks the extra session
will bo a protracted one, but the Democrats will
stum! Just os Arm as they did In the last session.
Hu tblokft Tildcn will be the choice for 13S0, al
though he Is personally In favor of Hendricks. He
thinks tho report ot the Nationals controlling
tho next House Is nil rubbish.‘ Ho Is almost
sure they will vote with tho Democrats on or
uuiiizatiqa. Mr. Colerlck favors Randall, thinks
he made a very good Speaker, admires his
rulings, etc., but cannot yet say who bo will
support until bo confers with other members.
Ho is in hopes tbo extra session will bo short
and decisive.
THE NEW SENATE.
a BTonnoim fact.
ftprclnf Dispatch tn The Tribunt,
Washington, D. C., March 11. —The army of
applicants for place on the Senate side under
the Sergeant-at-Arms and Secretory arc prob
'obly not aware Hint changes of the present force
under these officers cannot bo made without
the approval of Vice-President-Wheeler, but
such Is the fact. Democratic Senators And them
selves placed in an odd position by the situation
of this question. In 1854, when the Senate wos
coutroltcd by the Democrats, a select commit
tee of that body was appointed, of which Mr.
Mason was Chairman, to take IntO consideration
several resolutions and orders of the Senate
providing for the appointment uud prescribing
the duties of Us officers, to
RBPOIIT RULES AND REGULATIONS,
fixing the number of sucb officers and other
subordinates, classifying them,fixing their com
pensation, prescribing the mode of appointment
to and dismissal from office, and effecting such
organization generally as belter to insure their
responsibility and efficiency. The Committee
reported on the 10*.h of July, 1851. and among
other things said: “In the opinion of the Com
mittee,, the correct and safe transaction of the
business of the Senate is materially dependent
on retaining In Us service a corps of experienced,
well-trained, and diligent officers, and this can
only be done by security lu their respective posi
tions so long os they continue faithful In the
discharge of their duties.” The Committee,
therefore, reported the following resolution on
thivsubject:
Jlttohed. That tbs several ofllran util others In
the Departments ot the BtcrcrAiVV* the Bennie,
oud of the Borycant-at-Arms vhul bo appointed
and removed from oflico by thoso.>officcrs respect
ively as heretofore, but whim mad* during the ses
sion of tho Senate any such • removal to bo lint ap
proved by the President of tho Senate on reasons
to be assigned therefor in wrlllngi-by tho officer
making tho removal, and when In) tho recces such
reasons in writing to bo laid before, tho President
of tho Bennie on tho first day ofttbe succeeding
session, and to bo approved or* disapproved by
him.
One week later, on the 17th of'July, Mr. Ma
son called up his report for action, and, when
the resolution above quoted was reached, Mr.
Bright moved to strike out of the resolution all
that which relates to giving thoTresldont of the
Senate
A SUPERVISORY POWER.
Mr. Mason, in opposing this amendment, said:
Senators who have read the report will find tbat
the object of the Committee was, and they thought
It was In accordance with the Judnuent of too Sen*
ate, to maku the organization of the Senate perma
neat, to have an efficient body of officers to assist
them in the clscbargo of their nubile duties, sod to
remove from the Senate every inducement or de
sire to keep its organization unsullied by tho in*
trodnetton of now ofllcens from session to session,
or from Congress to Congress. \\ e know, sir, that
tho practice of tho Government Inilts various de
partments lias been, upon o new accession to pow
er, to chuDgo all subordinates andiuniilsierial offi
cers not because they have been duofllciont men,
but solely and simply to put in others who wanted
their places. It is (o prevent the introduction of
that practice into liic beuato that tho Commlitco
have recommended tho permanent character
of tho organization. bir, no Honator

give you Information when you want it, and where
to direct to it. * it is highly important to ail buna
tors, and mare especially to Bcnators when
they como bore for tho first.time. The fear
was that unless tho pnwor of. removal was In somo
way restrained, tho ofilcur havine tho power of ap
pointment might at times tool himself coerced to
remove some employes tn his deuartment to put in
others who wanted places, and - who, ninety-nine

dlscaarvo of ttiolr duties.
Air. Bright’s amendment was rejected by a
vote of 15 yeas to 10 nays, and tho resolution us
reported by tho Committee was agreed to.
That action by the Senate made tho resolution
quoted above one of tho standing orders ot the
Senate, with
TUB FULL VOUCH OP A RULE,
and there It stands to this day without change.
Thu Senate being a permanent; body, it Is nut
necessary, nor is it customary, for it to adopt
the body of its rules and standing orders at Ihu
bcglnlugof every Congress, as it Is In the House.
These rules and standing orders remain in
force until they arc rescinded or amended, and
tho resolution requiring the Vicu-Prcshlent to
supervise all romovols from office in tho Bonntc,.
and tho Secretary and Scrgeont-nt-Arms to sub
mit In writing to Vice-President Wheeler tho
reasons for every removal, will prevent any
sweeping chances among subordinates in their
offices unless there oru good ’reasons therefor.
The only way In which the Democrats can, there
fore, gel control of the patronage of the Senate
is by rescinding the abovo standing order, and
that cannot ho done without a debate which will
attract the attention of tho country.

NOTES AND NEWS.
TUB BUUVBYS DIRECTORSHIP.
Signal Dltvutch lo The TXMms.
Washington, D. C., March 11.—It is gen
orally conceded that the President has decided
to appoint Clarence King as Die Director ot the
consolidated survey ordered by the clause In the
Sundry Civil bill. Dy this appointment Prof.
Hayden, who bis labored very strenuously to
have this new bureau created, will bo greatly
disappointed. Secretary Schurz Is understood
not to have been well disposed towards Hayden,
and, as the appointment was left mainly to the
choice of Schurz, It is not surprising that
Clarence Ring, who Is a known friend of
Schurz, should have won the prize. Mr. King
is a young man about 30, who has already made
his name knowu in his profession In two contl
nents.
TUB LEADERS.
The flight of several Democratic Senators to
escape the plague renders the situation physical
ly unbearable to those who remain. Senator
Cordon Is sick at his residence, and he has been
obliged to station policemen at bis dour to drive
off the crowd of ofllcc-scckcrs. This cxocricnce
with candidates is new with/he Democrats, and
some of the more quiet old Senators of the late
.minority and present majority are almost dis
tracted by it.
Senator Bock docs not believe the Democrats
will adept the reported plan of dividing the
Legislative bill into three parts so as to give
Congress Us money lo one bJH, the courts In
another, and leave the whole executive branch
In the hill by itself, and to this attach their de
sired political legislation. He thinks the bills
which failed will bo reported Just as they orig
inated In the House at the last session. There
Is uzlrong.dtsposltlon on the part of the mure
prominent Democrats to resist the introduction
of new legislation at the .coming session, and
Mr. Beck thinks it will be. the policy of the
House to appoint but fcw.committccs until the
regular session.
ES-nErnc3BNTvnvß plover,
the crcat occidental discoverer of Democratic
frauds. Is making nn active campaign for
Bergeant-at-Arms of the Senate. At tirst his
competitors were inclined to laugh at hU.pre
tensions, but the remarkable exhibition of con*
ildenco on the part of his friends has at last
caused considerable uneasiness lu their ranks.
While Glover’s party do not claim success on
the first vote, ttiev say they bare matters so
arranged as to make his success certain iu the
cod.

Bobtok, March'll.—A disaster, appalling
in its terrible fatality, and Leary in the
financial loss it has caused, has fallen upon
tbo City of Gloucester, which previously
contained far more than the usual proportion
of widows and orphans, and enterprises
sorely smitten by the business depression of
tbo past few years.
On tho night of the 20th of February n
gale of almost unprecedented violence, ac
companied with blinding snow and sleet,
came roaring down upon tho George’s fleet.
About fifty vessels occupied the most dan
gerous positions, and of this number it is
feared that fourteen woro lost.
If all that is feared did happen,
OKB HUNDRED AND FORTV-BJX UEK,
tho husbands of forty-ouo wives and tho
fathers of nearly 100 children, and property
which caunot be replaced for less than
$7/5,000, wero swallowed up by the raging
waters.
For the post week or ton days tho excite
ment In tho city has been intense.
At first not much alarm was felt, bat, as
vessel after vessel that had weathered the
storm came in and brought no tidings of the*
missing ones, tho gravest anxiety began to
prevail.
None of thoso that ore missing bavo been
reported since tho gale.
Of the safety of some of them there is yet
a ray of hope, bnt it is certain that the most
of them will
NEVfll BE HEARD FROM AGAIN.
HARDLY.
Tho onzious wnitiug for their return has sow
given place in tho minds of the owners to
the forced conviction that they and their
crows havo perished.
It is probable that no financial distress
will bo occasioned, but a distressing influ*
once will be felt directly or indirectly in
every portion of tho business interests of
the city.
THE WIDOWS AND ORPHANS
will have to bo cared for, and tho insurance
on tho vessels and outfits, which was
all placed in the Gloucester Mutual
Fishing-insurance Company, will have
to bo assessed upon tho firms,
and will thus come out of tho general bus!'
ness. Tho total insurauco is $30,289.
Tho merchants of Gloucester, however,
as well os her fishermen, are hardy, de
termined people, and quickly .forget tho
troublcsof tho past in their present endeavors
and future planning. Withoataiking any oat
side help, they will settle their own losses,

Every vessel, exposed as they all woro to
too wild force of tho gale and tho waves,

for a moment tho fierce rush of tho wind, and
there was nothing for tho sailors to do but

Special Dlepatch to The Tribune.
Ottawa, March 11.—At a meeting of the Im
migration and Colonization Parliamentary Com*
mlttec, Cot. Laurie, of Nova Beotia, was tho
first witness examined. His evidence chiefly
pertained to stock-raising and tho best kind of
cattle adapted for this country. He said he bad
farmed for twelve years In Nova Beotia, and bad
a herd of cattle of seventy head,—sixty-five be
ing thoroughbred, lie had obtained the best
results from Devons, in all respects. They were
the hardest and best fitted lor this country.
The beef Is good, the flesh fine-grained, and
commands in the London market a half-penny
a pound more than any other. He would
not pretend to say what breed was tho boat
for the English markets, but tho purest
breeds give the best meat. He recommended
farmers to raise, for butter purposes. Alder
novs; for milk, Ayrshlrcs; for meat, Short-
Horns; but the best for general purposes were
the Devons. •He did not know a county in
Nova Scotia that was not adapted for farming
and stock-raising. Ho gave his reasons for be
lieving that the cattle-trade with England
would go on increasing. If tho farmers foumt
It profitable, they might be Induced to feed und
breed better classes of cattle. When once
farmers got into the way of it, tlicv could raise
cattle ol from 1,400 to 1,800 pounds. Ho had
never known a cose of plcuro-pncumonia or anv
other epidemic in Nova Beotia. Halifax pre
sented all the advantages of a shipping-port,
and ho believed mat the insil-sicamurs
could obtain return cargoes of meat and
apples without going on to Baltimore, as
they did st present. As to horses, there
were but few choice ones in Nova Beotia. They
were suitable for cab or horse-ear purposes, but
they were too small for artillery nr English car
riage horses. Sheep of the Shropshire Down
breed do well in Nova Beotia, and the farmers
look upon them as being most profitable; but
the? are not raised to sufficient quantities for
exportation. Thcro was verv little capital
umoug the farmers, and they'invest more la
ships than they do in their farms. Cattle are
housed from the 15th of November to the Ist
of April, and arc fed for beef from October to
June. Hay was used for feeding, and that
made It somewhat unprofitable. Good beef at
this season could bo. bought in Halifax by. tho
carcass at nine cents' per pound. Lind Is used
fur pasture.that cannot be put to any oilier pur
pose. The climate was milder than that of On
tario. Speaking of the relative merits of Devons
«ud Short-Horns, ho said he could teach a Dev
on more in twenty-four hours than ho could
knock into the head of a stupid BborC-Huru lu
twenty-four mouths. ,

out lu Marmora. The first instance coming un
der the attention of tho doctors was the case of
Mr. Maxuu, a baker of tho village. Borne time

his return he was seized with a violent sickness,
and in six days died. A relative of the deceased
who nursed him became affected and died live
days afterward. Thu third victim was a woman
who visited the house. She was prostrated
in the same way, ami in forty
eight hours was a corpse.- Thcro has already
been five victims, and many more are HI and ap
pear to he lingering. The symptoms of the
disease arc great chilliness and pain in the bead
and bock, pains in tho armpits and groin, fol
lowed by swelling of the glands of these parts.
Tula 1s supplemented .by severe sickness, und
black patches appear upon- the skin, under
which bloody matter forms. Soon the patient
dies, and the body after death becomes as black
as a polished stove, it was first thought tho
disease was small-pox of a malignant type, hut
