FORTY-SEVENTH CONOR ESS.
MUST SESSION. Senate. ilis first proposition was, that our people oue hundred years ago founded this nation upon the moral law affirming that all men equally derived from the Creator the right to the Washington', March 1.—The Senate at 2:45 resumed the consideration of the Chi nese bill, and Hoar (Mass.) took the floor with a set speech in opposition to its passage. pursuit of happiness, and that equality in that light is the fundamental rule of divine justice in its application to mankind. He set forth how the nation had grown, and said the existence of the principle just stated had attracted immigration from all countries to our own shores rather than to South Amer that it was meant to include the right of ex patriation. This was declared in 186S by act of Congress, and by persistent effort of Con uess, a California Senator of Irish birth, it was urged upon the country that the right of expatriation is an indispensible enjoyment of life and the pursuit of happiness. The doctrine was solemnly reiterated in the Bur ica or Mexico; that every new State affirmed it in its constitution, and that California her seit, in her original constitution, declared ' 1 ingame treaty. Mr. Webster declared that the equality of rights, especially those of laborers, is the principal benefit which Amer icans had conferred on mankind. We have made a treaty and now we propose this legis lation, which undertakes to deny and over throw that declaration and to strike a blow ; at men by reason of tlieir race and occupa- : iiou. China offered to modify the Burlingame ! treaty so as to permit the exclusion of prosti tutes, criminals, diseased persons, and im ported Coolie laborers. This oiler was re jected by our government and a treaty sub stituted which does not permit the exclu sion of the three first named classes, but only permits the exclusion of laliorers. The pur pose of the framers of the treaty and the bill is to strike their blow at labor, without re gard to character. It was impossible to over state the sonsequences to mankind from in serting such a doctrine at the demand of the United States in the world's public law. The treaty permits only a reasonable suspension of immigration. The bill totally prohibits it lor twenty years, and confers ou every petty officer of customs the power to seize and forcibly re move from the country persons without trial. Wliat lias happened within the past thirteen years that our great republic should strike its flag? Only 42,000 Chinese have been added to our population in that time. There are 105,000 of them here all told,the live hun dredth part of our whole population. They are the most easily governed race in the world. Mr. Hoar said that in 1880, in a total im migration of 553,000, there were but 582 Chinese, and in 1*81 there were 20,000 in a total of 720,000 immigration, while in the same year 10,000 Chinese went back. The pure blooded Gypsies roaming through this country are as numerous as the Chinese, all of whom if gathered in one place would not sixteenth city exceed the population of the & of this legislation, lie salt, j worked the old race prejudice which had so often played its hateful and bloody part in history, and asserted that as a Chinaman worked and lived cheap, he injured the American laborer with whom he competed. He answered this argument to show that the outcry against the Chinese was the same which h past against the Irishman Jew, arid that each of these races iu turn ; had indicated its capacity lor freedom and ! ad been made in the uau, Negro, Indian uml ! f fWraks in turn subdued over a large part of the world. The ; predjudices which it had founded, he ad-! mitted were great,as were the abuses and dan gers growing out of the coming of these peo- j gers growing out of the coming of these peo pie, hut much of these he thought might he ! remedied by State or municipal legisla rWofont Afllîonrü in Aciaii^ nnrffl 1 tion. Constant oflicers in Asiatic ports could prevent the coming of any man whose labor ! was uot his own. ^fr. Hoar yielded the tloor at 4:45, having ! spoken over t*vo hours. The hill was laid ] over as unfinished business for to-morrow. \ Adiourned, • , - I At u40 the Sen- j Washington, Match 2 t ate resumed the consideration of the Chinese hill, and Grover, of Oregon, took the floor in its advocacy, and said : The soil and climate of California had an attractiveness for the Chinese which did not pertain to other parts of the country, and he proceeded to argue that the reason lor our welcoming the coming European emigration did not apply to the Mongolian. The people of Oregon had con stantly and persistently demanded the re striction of Chinese emigration. It had been said that the hereditary policy of our govern ment demanded of us to open our ports to the oppressed of all nations, even though this he against the wishes and interest of the great body of the American people. But the contemporary acts of tlie founders of our in stitutions should he considered in construct ing their purposes, and these showed that they looked only to European emigrants, to - i i • i 1 • iL.l. nrAnU r Pl\lo help and sustain them in their work. This was apparent iu their treatment of the Indi ans and the African. With the exception of William Penn our ancestors proceeded to drive out the aborigines with lire and sword, and to occupy the land. For themselves they did not attempt to civilize the Red Men or to make them part of the nation, but treated them as aliens and outcasts. Their conduct must he constructed as being a limit to the mean ing of their public declaration, "that all men ■ are created equal and endowed with the in- ' alienable right to liberty and the pursuit of j happiness." They undoubtedly meant all j men like themselves. Grover continued his remarks at some length, closing with an argument in support of his amendment offered on Tuesday, and was followed by Farley, who replied to Hoar. He challenged proof that the treaty had been forced from China. He showed that the bill simply provided for legislation which China liad consented to in advance. He argued the inherent right of all governments to impose j restrictions on emigration. He extorted an: admission from Hoar that lie favored admit-1 ting the Chinese to naturalization and suf- 1 frage on the same terms as other foreigners, ! and that the people of California had op- j pressed or maltreated the Chinese. He com- 1 mentedon the significance of the practica bility of a unanimous vote in California j ago had uot proved to he a permanent sue- ; cess. Several lively colloquies took place he-! •V which was adopted, and the hill went over as unfinished business for to-morrow. W ashington, March 3.-The bill author iziug the compilation and refinishing of* the naval history of the war passed. The hill reducing tlie charges for license of engineers, pilots, etc., of steam vessels passed. Tlie bill making Denver a port of delivery passed. The Senate continued the consideration ol the Chinese bill, and after a lengthy debate went into executive session and afterwards adjourned until Monday. I Washington, March 6.— Ingalls reported j from the Judiciary Committee the bill for equity courts of bankruptcy throughout the I oue the i United States, conferring jurisdiction upon ! United States Courts. Vest reported favorably from the Commit tee on Commerce the bill to incorporate the inter-oceanic ship railroad. Teller reported favorably the House bill at granting a pension to Mrs. Garfield of $5,000 a year, with an amendment including Mrs. Polk and Mrs. Tyler. Davis introduced a bill for Logan, who was unable to be present, for the construction of the Illinois and Mississippi canal. At 1:40 the Senate resumed the considera tion of the Chinese bill, and Slater took the in floor in its advocacy. Call also addressed the Senate, and was followed by Brown, of Ga. He He argued that the bill does not conform to the spirit of the treaty, because its provisions had were too long and too sweeping a suspension to of Chinese immigration. Its provisions in those respects were not as reasonable as the ex act it treaty stipulated they should be. He also criticised the regulations prescribed by the bill in regard to passports, etc., for the ad mitted classes, as being violations of the treaty stipulations, which guarantee to such classes the right to go and come at their own free will and accord, and to enjoy all the rights, privileges and immunities ot subjects of the most favored nations. Brown con tinued to oppose the bill on the ground of alleged violation of good faith. He then proceeded to question the necessity for any of restrictive legislation whatever. He said the number of Chinese now in this country is not j large, and that Chinese immigration is de creasing. He therefore maintained that there was nothing alarming in the present situa ; tion and no need to pass any bill on the sub : ject. He also argued that we would imperil ! our growing commerce with China by vio lating the spirit of the treaty as provided by this bill. Brown concluded h'-------! 4:15. Teller, of Colorado, then advocated showing the non-assimilative character of Chinese immigration, saying that so far from coming here to make a part of our country, the Chinaman would not accept citizenship unless as a means of making money by sell-, ing his vote. Teller proceeded to expose the re of a ,s provided by ,emark8 a ' icated the bill, fallacy of tile argument that cheap labor is necessary or desirable. At the conclusion of Teller's speech Dawes sought the floor, hut yielded to a motion to adjourn, which iu view of the knowledge that several other Senators also wished to prolong the debate, was agreed to, and the Senate at 4:45 adjourned until to-morrow. Washington, March 7.—Beck, from the Fiuance Committee, reported favorably the bill to puuish unlawful certification of checks by officers of hanks. Sherman, from the Finance Committee, re ported the following original hill : That all certificates of deposits issued under the pro visions of the act of February 26,1879, en titled "au act to authorize the issue of certif icates of deposits iu aid of refunding the pub lic debt," not presented for conversion into four per cent, bonds of the acts of July 14, 1870, and January 20, 1871, on or before the first of July next, shall he converted only in to registered bonds of said loan: provided, however, that the Treasurer of the United States may redeem at the market rate at any time under such regulations as the Secretary j SÄÄ Ä crued interest to the date o( presentation^ the amount of such redemption to he credited to the sinking fund. Placed on calendar. The Senate at 1:30 resumed the considera ; Saturday, ! Dawes then Fair sent up to the clerk's desk and had read a great number of telegrams received by them giving accounts of the anti-Chinese meetings ! held throughout the Pacific slope on last <W„r,Lav * up to tue clerk s desk ana naareaa a great number of telegrams received by them took the floor and began a ; speech against the hill. He went over the familiar ground of the argument in favor of Chinese immigration, and claimed that there j is at least as much danger to society and is at least as much danger to society and ! political institutions of this country from tlie vicious and idle emigrants of European 1 nniiAiia in ihp nitips JlS from l;lhorC*rS. The nations in the cities as Irom laborers. The ! settlement of this question in the manner proposed by this measure, was the surrender ! ot principle in order to make peace at tlie ] behests <?f U* disorderly foreign element of \ that locality. I Jones, of Nevada, i^rrupt^g, he^ j leave to correct Dawes when he assumed that, this oppasition to the Chinese arose from an overmastering passion of foreign elements there. The elections Uçld in California soon treaty after the ratification of the Burlingame at a time when the State was Republican by 20,000, proves conclusively that the people of ' ' v . ..... California were bitterly opposed to the treaty, for the Republican candidate for Governor, " ,by The Senate at 4:10 went into executive session, leaving the Chinese hill for considéra tion to-morrow. House. Washington, March 4. —Hiscock claimed for the Republican party all the credit of the legislation of 1868 respecting the rights of naturalized citizens.

Springer advocated the amendment con sol idatiug the Missions to France and Spain, Germany and Austria, etc. Cox (N. Y.) expressed regret that a partisan turn should have been given to the discus sion. The act of 1868 was the product of both parties. He advocated the abrogation of.the Bancroft treaty, which discriminated ■ against German citizens ' Robinson said the question had again come j to the surface and the question had been j ar gued by gentlemen on the other side, going to show that the interests as represented by struggling Ireland found its great defender in the Democratic party. The orators and speech makers on the other side stood up to tax the ear of the country in declaring the great and unquestioned principle of freedom, progress, and the rights of man, and adding to it the falsehood that the modern dernoc racy 0 f this country was its champions and j defenders. an: Smith (111.) asked unanimous consent to ta fc e f r0 m the House calendar and pass the 1 bin to retire the trade dollar, !

Hoar, from the Committee on Commerce, The House went into Committee of the Whole on the Consular and Diplomatic Ap propria tion hill. of* Washington, March 6— Belford offered a resolution reciting the miseries inflicted upon of the Jews in Russia, declaring that the people of the United States protest against the spirit ol of the persecution revived in Russia ; assert ing that the Hebrews are loyal citizens and subjects, and requesting the President to sub mit to His Imperial Majesty the Czar, the friendly assurances of the people of the I United States and request him to exercise his j power for the sake of humanity to protect for Jewish subjects from the violence of their I enemies. j Page presented a petition from the citizens ' of the Pacific coast asking Congress to pass the bill to incorporate the Maritime Canal Company of Nicaragua. Referred. Also, a resolution adopted at a mass meet ing of the citizens of Sacramento urging the suppression of polygamy. Referred. The Consular Appropriation bill passed by 22 to 27, the House having refused to strike out the item for Ministers abroad and their secretaries, and also to insert instead a pro and other commercial agents as the interests of United States citizens require. By Hewitt (Ala.)—To restore to the pen of _ . : sion roll the names ol persons dropped by to reason of participation in or aiding in the rebellion. , A night session was ordered, lor Inda\ lor in i the consideration ol pension bills, Dibrell (Tenu.) moved to suspend the rules his was out vision for the appointment of such Consuls i the her her ! and pass the bill repealing so much of the | clause ol the sixth section 3244 of the Lev ised re Statutes relating to the sale ot leaf tobacco as imposes a fine or penalty ou tanners or pro- ne 1 ducers of leaf tobacco, who may sell the same j to consumers, and providing that hereafter 0 f ! all farmers or other producers of leaf tobacco | shall be allowed to sell their ow n or their tenants' production without a license or pen of ; alty. The motion was seconded and a half hour's debate entered upon. Dibrell advocated the , bill, which he asserted would only reduce the revenue about $600. At present it cost the government $10,000 to enforce the law and collect that $600. White (Ky.) favored the bill as one that he would relieve the small farmers ot the hourli of a great hardship. Kelly (Pa.) stated that he was anxious to get rid ot a system ol internal taxation which _- — - ---------- 1 _ allow revenues so far as tobacco was con- j ceined to be fritted away. This question ; was now before the Committee on Ways and i Means and is receiving grave consideration, He would cooperate in all just efforts to re j lieve the country of internal revenue taxa t J» the liud get rid ot a system oi internai taxation \\ men ' ' 1Ä : j was beginning at the wrong cud.

Washington, March G. —In the inter view between Guiteau and Scoville yester day, the former assured the latter he was sorry he had abused him on the occasion of his last visit, and promised not to offend him again. Strange as it may appear, a woman was at the liottom of the affair, which grew out of Scoville 's witholding a letter from i Guiteau. A young lady signing herself Clara Augusta Davis, residing at Hoboken, New Jersey, took the trouble to write thir-, teen closely written pages of letter paper to I the prisoner, in which she assured him of ; her devotion to his interests, and announced i her intentions of getting him out of jail, if i money could accomplish such a thing. The | prisoner answered her at once, but when her . re p] y ^-ame it fell into Scoville's hands and . nictnre of a handsome in-! ne °P eüCÜ lL A P lctuie 01 a handsome, ( j telligent looking young woman dropped out 0 f the missive, which was addressed to ' My dear persecuted friend."

Scoville retained the letter and ou the occasion of his recent trip to New York, he endeavored to liud the writer. After considerable trouble wanted Guiteau's replies as souvenirs, and : fetter from Mm. j Guiteau, however, received another letter in care for her or he would have acknowledged the receipt of her picture, and this had a tendency to render him furious at Scoville's action. When the latter entered his cell he : immediately began to abuse him for keeping , . , , . \ P nvate letters from him, and grew so ex ! cited that his counsel hurriedly vacated his ; quarters, and did not see him again until he j returned from New York. The prisoner's anger had cooled considerably, and when Scoville told him of the result of his inves tigation he seemed perfectly reconciled. He informed him further that he intended to bring out another edition of his hook, "The j Truth," in which he still exhibited great re lianee and could sell it to visitors, -------•-------- I ; closed a contract for the National Mining ! and Industrial Exposition Building, ground Discovered Fraud«.
