SECOND SESSION. SENATE. Washington, January 13.—The Vice Pres ident laid betöre the Senate a communication from the Postmaster-General recommending various minor deficiency appropriations for 1879-80, amounting to fsiül,000. Several Senators presented numerously signed petitions for a commission of inquiry into the alcoholic liquor traffic. Kernan and Salisbury presented memorials for the withdrawal of the legal tender quality of treasury notes. Saulsbury, by request, introduced a bill to preserve the secrecy of telegrams. Carpenter, from the Judiciary Committee, reported adversely the bill to extend the juris diction of the Supreme Court. Placed on the calendar. Ferry announced that to suit the conven ience of various Senators he w T ould not ask the Senate to devote Thursday for memorial services to the late Senator Chandler, but would ask that another day be set apart. Morrill offered the following resolution, which was laid on the table, and he announ ced his intention to speak upon i' on Th':rs day next. Resolved , That the Committee on Finance be instructed to inquire as to the practicability of refunding any part of the national debt at a less rate than four per cent, interest, and also, as to whether or not some effective pro vision can be made whereby bona fide sub scriptions for sums in moderate amounts may be available, and to report by bill or other wise. On motion of Garland, by a vote of 28 to 25, the Senate went into executive session, and when the doors were re-opened, on mo tion of Thurman, the house bill, to provide for circuit courts and district courts of the United States at Columbus, Ohio, and trans ferring certain counties from the northern to the southern districts of that State, was taken up and passed. On motion of Cockrell the Senate again went into executive session. Adjourned. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. Washington, January 13.—After some rou tine business consideration was resumed of the resolution for printing Glover's report, and the question was recommitted to Com mittee on Printing, with instructions to in quire how the house lost possession of the report and who now has possession of it. Wilson, from the Committee on Printing, reported the bill for the election of Congres sional printer. Referred to the Committee of the Whole on a point of order. Bicknell, chairman of the committee on counting the votes for President and Vice President, reported back the bill to provide for and regulate the counting of votes for President of questions arising thereupon, and it was made the special order for the 29th of Jan nary. The bill appropriating $4,000 for furniture in the house passed. Garfield's motion, that the librarian pur chase works on finance and political economy for the Ways and Means Committee, was adopted by 172 to 67. Many executive communications were re ceived and referred. Monroe, chairman of the Committee on Post Offices, submitted a report to accompany the bill for the establishment of return letter offices. Referred. The House went into Committee of the Whole on the report of the committee on rules. Dunnell objected to rule 120, prohibiting any amendment to an appropriation bill which changed the existing law unless it re trenched expenditure. The rule was undem ocratic, submitting the house to the control of a bare majority of the Committee on Ap propriations. He opposed the rule requiring the Committee on Commerce to prepare the river and harbor bill for the Committee on Appropriations. He denounced the attempt to make the river and harbor bill appear to be a gigantic steal. Barber opposed that proposition also. Whitehorne believed that one committee should control the appropriations. Brown took an opposite view. Making the appropriation committees sole abiters was setting up an aristocracy and making the Speaker an autocrat. The committee then rose. Shellabarger introduced a bill to refund the national debt, reduce the interest, and im- prove the public credit. Adjourned. - -4R» «4 ■ A Canadian Frelate Against Annexation Toronto, January 13.—Archbishop Lynch, in a lecture last evening, said : The question of annexation, now occupying the public at tention in this country as well as in the United States, is a very serious one. As I have been a missionary priest for a long while in the Union and traveled through that country in all directions, I feel it a duty I owe the peo pie to warn them against any project of that kind. After the love of God comes the love of country. Tëachers, as well as parents and guardians, should imbue the minds of the rising generation with this feeling. Our sys tem of government is the best in the world, therefore retain it by every means in your power. Should you be suicidal enough to voluntarily become subject to another nation, your doom is irrevocably sealed. Had Ire land a Parliament and government as we have, instead of being as she is, the mendi cant of nations, she would be the richest and most prosperous nation in the world and her people happy, contented and loyal.

Like the queen of ancient history I was ready to exclaim : "The half has not been told me." In the first place I was greatly struck with the general appearance of the interior, which reminded me vividly of Dry Goods houses at my old home in the East. Having plenty of time at my disposal I made a thorough exami nation of each department and was perfectly astonished at the very choice and extensive line of goods displayed. I was really delight ed with the extent and beauty of their Dress goods, which represented all the late and stylish fall fabrics as well as the standard mohairs, alpacas and cashmeres. The very polite salesman in this department showed me a most elegant line of black and colored silks while the prices of them were very low in deed. In flannels, repellants, woolens, table linens and white goods I was really amazed at the large stock' carried, including all the different grades of these goods, and offered at prices so very reasonable that 1 wondered how Messrs. Raleigh & Clarkes could afford to sell at such a small margin of profit. I was shown a beautiful line of ladies and children's hosiery both in plain and fancy colors, also a very nice assortment of ladies ana misses merino and muslin underwear. The notion department was filled to overflowing with handsome goods so necessary in each family and home, while I saw ever so many pretty little articles that delight the feminine eye. I would like to speak of their magnificent suit and cloak department, replete with latest New York and Parisan costumes ; of their lovely cloaks, ulsters and shawls, but space forbids. Suffice to say I exhausted both my time and pocket-book before leaving, while my pur chases were so very satisfactory that I did not wonder at the popularity and immense sales of this young house. I shall certainly recom mend Raleigh & Clarkes to ail my friends that desire splendid goods, courteous treat ment and low prices.— Corrs. Times. During the fall and winter there* will be hundreds of visitors to our city from every county in the Territory, and as many of these would be pleased to see one of the most ele gant and complete mercantile establishments west of Chicago, they will of course call at the model dry goods store of Messrs. Raleigh & Clarkes, on the west side of Main street. The new house is fitted up in a style not sur passed by any of the Eastern cities with ten times our population, and is complete in every particular and in all its appointments. Ladies visiting this establishment will find anything and everything that may be needed and at such prices as will astonish them. Messrs. Raleigh & Clarkes announce that henceforth they are determined to sell their goods at lower prices than ever before offered In Montana, and that they will strictly adhere to this rule. Having made extensive pur chases this year at bottom figures, and hav ing secured the lowest rates of freight from New York to Helena, they are enabled suc cessfully to compete with Eastern houses, and give as good satisfaction. We com mend Messrs. Raleigh & Clarkes to the pub lic, and bespeak for them a liberal share of Ine trade .—Burning Herald.
