The Senate Reorganization. I \\ ashington, March 19.—The Republican I Senators have not yet canvassed upon the | subject of moving for a change in the Senate j officers during this special session, and sev- 1 eral ol them arc inclined in favor of the re tention of tlie present officers until the Forty- : seventh Congress shall have assembled in ! both branches, especially if that event is ■ likely to occur at an early day. It is urged 1 that it would bo rather ''crowding the mourn-1 ei > to throw the Democratic officers and their subordinates out of employment so sud . denly and upon such very short notice. And | besides these considerations it will lie in the power of the Democrats to prevent any I change in the offices if they solidly abstain from voting on any resolution providing for a change and thus break the requisite quorum, j It is quite doubtful, how ever, whether the 1 Democrats would consent to filibuster for this purpose, and if two of them, or one j seventh Congress will be called is directing 1 renewed attention to the Speakership contest. The only Eastern candidate of prominence is Frank Hiscoek, of New York, who will he supported by the Republicans of bis own State and those of Pennsylvania and New' England. The West has two prominent candidates, Kasson, of Iowa, aud Kiefer, of Ohio. Burrows, of Michigan, is also in the field, but lias no considerable chances. The Democrat and Judge Davis vote either way, ! the Republicans would be successful. When- j ever the changes are made, Geo. C. Gorham | w ill undoubtedly be re-elected Secretary of | the Senate, and James R. Young, of Pennsyl -1 vania, executive clerk.

AYashington, Alareh 21.—The A'ice Presi dent presented a communication from the Governor of Wisconsin relative to the death of AI. A. Carpenter. It was read, laid on the table and the Senate went into executive session and afterwards adjourned. AYashington, Alareh 22.—A'oorliees of fered a resolution that the hostile attitude assumed by the National Banks toward re funding the National debt at low interest, and the recent attempt to dictate the legisla tion of Congress on the subject, are contrary to tlie interests of the people and calculated to create alarm for the future. A'oorliees said he wished to make a few remarks, but Aler ril raised the point that being not legislative business it was out of order. Ferry sustained the point and A'oorliees after saying that he had no idea that the legislative acts might not be done here, lie understood tlie precedents ran the other way. Conkling suggested to A'oorliees to let it lie until to-morrow when the Senate could look up the law and the precedents. A'oor hees acceded. The Senate went into executive session and adjourned. ------- Disappointment. AYashington, Alareh 22.—The anti-Grant Republicans are somewhat disappointed by tlie stalwart character of the nominations in New York aud Illinois. Although there is a popular clamor for an extra session there is also a strong undercurrent against it, es pecially among the AYestern Congressmen, and the financial interests and the best Re publican opinion is that it will not be called. The Cabinet probably will decide this after noon. The Morey Letter. New York, Alareh 22.—It is reported again that the rascal who forged the Morey letter lias been hunted down and that he and his accomplices will be dragged into the sun-light of publicity before long. A AA'asb ington correspondent telegraphs a gentleman who has had considerable to do with engi neering the search for tlie author of the Alorey letter, that all the parties implicated in the affair are known and that as soon as tlie testimony can be put in proper shape a full exposure will be made. He also said that all parties implicated would be prose cuted in the courts. The Gfiice-Seekers. AYashington, Alareh 22.—A fresh install ment of office-seekers have put in at this port witliin the past 24 hours, taking the places of disheartened ones who are now walking home. Indiana and Kentucky seek j ers are especially numerous. It is rumored j that the President intends shaking up the general offices in Indiana, and there are from ! fvell. Fron I gallop, look , , , v I left. Atter and worn six to fifteen applicants for each place. The Kentucky members who are here are clamor ing for the district-attorneyship. This office has been vacant by reason of resignation for over two weeks. Aleanwhile the applicants hang around the AA'hite House and bother the President to distraction. Pennsylvania office-seekers are also conspicuous. There are three good fat offices in Pittsburg, for which there are 20 ravenous applicants. In Philadelphia there is a surveyorship of tlie port to be filled, with a dozen anxious patri ots waiting for it. For the small offices, such as department-clerkships, the candidates are beyond calculation. Every Congressman has all the way from a dozen to fifty to propose. Aleanwhile the worry is beginning to tell on President Garfield. He complains that his appetite is failing him, that his sleep at night is disturbed, and his general health is break ing up. Under the advice of his friends he began yesterday taking out-door exercise on horseback. At three o'clock he left the AA'hite House, accompanied by bis private secretary, mounted on a spirited horse and rode out into the country. He looked jaded The President sits on a horse From the start he went off at a full looking neither to the right nor to the ' left. After the experience lie has had for . , , more than three weeks with applicants for office, he is not iu a condition of mind to prepare the message which he foreshadow ed in his inaugural, recommending the pas sage of a law to insure the fixity in the terms and tenure of all public offices. The recommendations sent in to-day for j the various New York marshalships and dis trict-attorneysliips are all of pronounced : Conkling men, and, with one exception, are j all re-appointments of officers whose appoint ; ments were originally procured by him, and ! whom President Hayes ineffectually' endeav to displace by tlie nominations of Fos Shepherd, Jacobs and others which ex j pKed without action with the last Congress.
