According lo a dispatch from Lorenzo
Marques, dated yesterday. Lord Roberts
ls reportcj to have inlercepted two trains
fuil leaving the vicinity of Pretoria. Teie
grams from the British side are exceed

from Pretoria say that Mrs. Kruger is

Boer officials rcmoved f.TOO.fHX) in goia
from National Bank June 4th, but did
not touch the cash holdlngs of the other
banks. Some of the Boers are surrender

Mr. Prevost Battersby, in a dispatch to
the Morning Post from Pretoria, dated
June 5th. says:
"The Boers pledged themselves to twenty
British officers not to take the British
prisoners away if these officers wouid con?
trol them and prevent an outbreak. Never
theless, they began their removal. After
tvO had been taken British shells struck a
orain that was loading. and Ihe Boers de
sisted and retired. Tlie British oflicers at
Haspoort refused to leave their quarters
and made the Boer commandant a prison?
er, releasing him at midnlght on condition
that he wouid cancel the order for the re?
moval of the prisoners.
"The Pretoria forts were found without
guns. All the artillery had been gotten
Another dispatch says: "Sixteen hun?
dred British prisoners were removed. Af?
ter tlie government had taken away most
of the stores tiie burghers were given a
free hand to help themselves. All the
British found was a few hundred bags of
coffee and sugar."
LOXDOX, June 7.?In the absence of
anything from British sources eniighten
ing the Boer statement that General Bul
ler requested a three days" armistice, the
military experts are inclined to beiieve a
revised version of the s'qry will show that
General Buller summoned the Federais to
surrender or evaCuate their jiositions
within three days. the failing of which he
wiil attack them.
According to a dispatch from Lorenzo
Mar-jucz. under to-day's date, the Boers,
under General Bothn, are again concen
.trating in tiie neighborhood of Matherly,
twelve miles east ward of Pretoria. Frmn
the same source it is reported that the
British prisoners are being removed to
Nooitgedacht, an unliealthy spot in the
Elandsvalky. About 300 men arrived there
June 5th and 700 reached the place June
6th. (
These probably constltutc the portion of
prisoners which Lord Roberts reported
had been shifted from Waterval.

Lansdowne, and the British commander

final adjournment. Members clamored for
recognition. ?
At 3:30 Uie Secretary o? the Senate ar?
rived and announced The action of the
Senate for an adjournment at 5 o clocK.
There was a war-whoop from tho floor,
and Mr. Payne moved to concur ln the
Senat.'s action.
?-'This House ought not to adjourn until
the senate has ac-ted on tho anti-trus:
bill," said Mr. Sulzer, of Xew _ork. Tne
Republicans attempted to howl him down,
but the Democrats rose en masse in sup?
port of his demand for a roll-call upon
Mr Pavne's motion. The yeas and nays
were ordered. and Uie motion was adopt?
ed-115 to 73. ??;?'"'"_"_
Messrs. l'avne of Xew York, Bingham of
Pennsylvania; and Kichafdson of Tennes
see, were appointed a committee to in
form the President that the House was
ready to adjourn.
Mr. Lentz, at this point, clamored for
recognition. and attempted to move the
passage, under suspenslon of the ruics, of
the resolution to prlnt the Couer D'Alene
testimony. The chalr dt-clined to recog
nlze him to make that motion.
Mr. Bromwell, o? Kentueky, attempted
to* get up a bill to give prefer-nce in the
pubiic service to honorably-dichargcd sol?
diers, sailors and marines of the Civil
War and the war with Spain. Mr. Wil?
liams. of Mississippi. objected, and when
Mr Bromwell moved the passage, under
suspenslon of the rules, he demamicd
tellers. Mr. Allen. of Mississippi, then
made the point of no quorum.
It was 4:30 P- M. before the Speaker
could count 37S members. Mr. Bromwell
then withdrew h:s bill, and the House
took a recess until 4:50 P. M., the mem?
bers meantime singing patriotic songs.
When the Speaker attempted to call the
House to order the members were still
singing- V\'th one accord they turned
upon him and drowned the crash o? his
gave! in the strains of "For He's a Joily
Good Fellow." With this tribute to the
Speaker's popularity the group broke up.
The Speaker observed good-naturedly:
"The choir will come to order." Mr.
Payne. on behalf of the committee ap?
pointed to wait on the President, then
announced that the President had reported
that he had nothing further to communl
cate. The clerk read a long list of bills
and resolutions signed by the President.
At 5 o'clock Speaker Henderson arose,
and amid profountl silence delivered his
"Gentlemen of the House of Represen?
tatives." said the Speaker. "we wil! in a
few moments complete our session's work.
It has been a session of earnest patriotic
effort, of unrctnitiing toil. Itiis House
has demonstrated that men may meet on
great fields of contest and part as friends.
This body has considered many great,
novel, national ques-ions. That fervor
which enters into dcba'.e on the eve of a
great national conflict has been present,
but guided by intelllgenee and manly
"At the opening of this session I took
the chalr with that fear and apprehen
slon which every contentions man should
feel. I appealed to you for support and
kindly aid. _Cot for one mex'nent liave you
forgotten that appeal, but your sustalning
influence has made it iwssible to consider
these mighty problems of the hour, and
never allow the legislator and the gentle
?men to sink below the high level of rnan
"In narting I wish you from my heart
a plensant vacation, and that you may all
return to the duties of the next session
refreshed in body and in mind.
"And now. in ptirsuance of the coneur
rent resolution adopted by the two Houses
of Congress, I declare this session ad?
journed without deiay."
An outburst of clieers followed, with
more singing. The 'members the.i slowly
dispersed. >
The Last [Day Proved to bc One of
WASHINGTON, June 7.?Congress ad?
journed sine die at 5 o'clock this evening.
For the Senate it was a day of waiting.
The naval appropriation bill?the stum
bling block to final adjournment?could
not be agreed to by the conferees of the
two houses. and the disagreement was re?
ported to the Senate early in the day.
The report was accepted, but the Senate
refused to request another conference, al?
though Mr. Hale expressed the belief that
an agreement might bc reached.
There was an evident disposition on the
part of the Senate to make trouble if the
conferees should concede from the Senate
amendment as to the ocean surveys, and
it was deemed the wiser policy to afford
the House an opportunity again to pass
upon the question.
At 3 o'clock, after several recesses had
been taken, the Senate was advised that
the House had coneurred in the Senate
amendments remaining in controveisy,
and soon aftcrward tlie House resolution,
providing for final adjournment, was pass?
ed with an amendment fixing the hour_at
5 o'clock, June 7th.
It was not until 4:1'?. twenty minutes be?
fore the hour fixed for adjournment. that
the president pro tempore of the Senate
(Mr. Frye) announced his signature to the
naval bill. With some other measures, it
was hurricd to the President, who was
waiting in his room in tlie Capitol, and
was signed by him a few minutes later.
The conciuding hour of the session was
purely a soc'al session. No business be
yond the adoption of the customary reso?
lution of thanks to the Chair (Mr. Frye)
was accomplished. Mr. Frye acknowl
edged tho compliment in a graeefu!
speech. The closing work of the- Senate
was perfunctory, -attended by no exciting
incident, as is often the case when the
gavel falls. There were cxpressions of
relief and gladness heard from alll ser.a
tors. One hundred and fifty-eight bills
were passed.
An attempt was made by Mr. Chand'ler
to obtain consideration for his resolution
instructing the Committee on Prtvileges
and Election to inquire into the constitu
tioanality of the electoral laws of certain
Mr. Berry and Mr. Pettus simultaneous
ly objected, and at 11:15 the Senate took
a recess for one hour.
On reconvening Mr. Hale reported
further disagreement on the naval blll.
He moved insistence on the Senate
amendments, and that a further confer?
ence be asked. Mr. Chandler inquired
why another was required if conferees
had determined not to agree.
Mr. Hale replied that an agreement
in most matters is most always possible.
Qhere was not'i.ng n he dispute c-xeept the
cadet and ocean survey matter. The
Magnitude of theWork Said to be Unprecedented.
The work of Congress as cocnpiled by Taliy Clerk Wakefield, of the House,
is as follows:
Nnmber of days in session, 137; bills introduced, 12,152; total passed, 1,215; pub?
iic acts. _S3; private acts, 1);<2; extent of Congressional Record, 7.0S1 pages.
Tlie bulk of this business far exceeds the work of first sessions cf the four
precedins Consresses, and in a much shcrter time. The shortest of these preced
ing first sessions was 175 days, as against 137 days this session. Tne greatest num?
ber of bills at these longer sessions has been 10,639, as against 12,152 to-day, and
the highesi total Qf acts heretofore 723, as against 1,215 at present The magni?
tude of the work is said to be unprecodeted.
armor plate matter had been settled.
"The Senator means." said Mr. Bacon,
of Georgia, "that tbe House has accepted
the Senate's surender."
Mri Bacon contended that the Senate
conferees' position wouid be made
stronger by not asking another confer?
ence : Mr. Hale modiP.ed his motion so
as not to request a further conference.
The report and motion were agreed to.
Mr. Pettus offered a resolution declaring
that the apropriations for the naval ser?
vice made for the present fiscal year
should be continued, so far as appHcable
for the ensuing fiscal year. It was per
mitted to remain on the table. The
Senate then took a recess until 2 o'clock.
At 2 o'clock the Senate reconvened. A
bill amending the act Incorporating the |
?Supreme Lodge of the Knights of
Pythias was passed. Shortly afterward
another recess was taken until 3 o'clock.
Then the news that the House had con
curred in the Senate naval amendments,
thus passlng the bill, was received with
gratilication. "? "V

Mr. Lindsay, of Kentucky, resented the
attack made' in the House last night by
Mr. Cannon on Commander Todd, Chief of
tho Hvdrographic Bureau.
"Reports of tha proceedings of this Con?
gress," said Mr. Bindsay, ''Impute false
hood'to Commander Todd. I submit to
any gentleman whether Todd was guilty
of falsehood, prevaricatioh or want of
Mr. Lodge made a statement to show
that the attack upon Commander Todd had
been made ln an effort to break down one
of the government surveys that another
might be built up. He declared the effort
reflectcd no credit upon those responsible
for it.
Mr. Chandler, in concurring with the
remarks of Mr. Lodge. expressed the liope
that Congress soon wouid deal effectually
with the. various surveys of the govern?
ment He thought Commander Todd had
violated the naval regulations in sending
out his letter, but that he had sutfered
enough he was assured.
Messrs. Allison and Cockreil were named
as a committee to notify tbe President
that the Senate was ready to adjourn,
and in a few minutes reported that the
President had no further communicatlons
to make, and that he extended to Con?
gress his felicitations on the great amount
of work aceomplished.
Mr. Cockreil offered a resolution, ten
de'ririg the Senate's thanks to Mr. Frye
for the dignified. impartial and courteous
manner with which he has preslded. It
war, adonted unanimously.
Mr. Frye spoke of tlie uniform kmdncss
of t'ne members toward him, makir.g his
dutv a pleasure, not a t'ask, and "hoped
our'dear Lord will permit you all to meet
here in the Chamber next December."
(Prolonged applause).
Precisely at 5 o'clock the gavel fell ancl
the session was at an?.end.
As the people were streaming from the
galleries, a iine-looking gray-haired man
rose in the gentlemen's gallery, and rais
ing his hat high above his head. and look
ing upward. shouted: "A messaae from
the Great White Throne. Jesus is com?
ing soon." He is the same man who, at
the eoneluslon of the Grant ceremonies
in the House of Representatives a short
time ago, made a similar demonstratlon. ?

WASHINGTON. June 7.?The President
was at the Capitol for about an hour and
a half to-day, taking his departure after
final adjournment at 5 o'clock. He was
again accompanied by his Cablnet, but
there were comparatively few bills re
quiring attention, and neilher the Presi?
dent or his advisors found their time
wholly occupied. The naval appropriation
bill was the ...i!y measure of general
character signed during tlie day.
The exddus from Washington began soon
after the session of Coiigress closed. Many
sehators, members and congressional oili
cials left on night trains, th'ough denart
ures were less numerous than usual, on
account of the coming Xational Conven?
tion in Philadelphia. Speaker Heriderson
will remain in town some days. He has
not yet positively delermined as to com?
ing to tlie- convention.

WASHINGTON. June 7.?Ferhaps a pub?
lished rumor to the effect that t'ne United
States might join with other powers in
prohibitir.g Ku.-sla frcm ianding more
troops than the See other powers in
China. led to the early appearance at 0__
Stato Department to-day of Mr. DeWoIerit,
the first secretary and charge of the Rus?
sian embassy. If that was the subject of
his inquiry, the Charge was speeriiiy re
assured, ior the State Department has
?made no .concealment of its policy respect
ing the Chinese situation and has reoeat
edly intimated that it Is concerned only
for the safety of the American lesatiohs
and consulates in China, and for tne direct
interests of American citizens th-re.
An indieation of the care exercised by
the Department in strictiy conaning its
offices to these lines. is afforded by the
instructions to Minister Conger, sent yes?
terday, to draw upon Admiral Kecnplt for
any force needed to protect his legatfoh,
and such refugees a^ might properly daim
the right of asylum there or in the consu?
Mr. Conger's powers are regarded a3
atnplc, but he ls not expected to take
action in the matter of dispatchlng mili
tary expeditions to the interior of China
that might be equivatent to a deciaration (
of war on our part.
The Navy Department was in commu
nication to-day with Admiral Remy, pre
sumably with reference to the speedy
movement of the Heiena or some other
ship to Taku.
