Washington, D, CL, Aug. 38.—The secre tary of the navy has sent to the house a re ply to the house resolutions adopted A UR. \ directing him to inform the house of the necessity of increasing the lorce at the Kittet y navy yard, near Portsmouth, N. 11., as ordered by tho department ; whether tlie interests of the public service require tlie reconstruction of the buildings there destroyed by lire, etc. The secretary says that tim necessity for the increase in the working force lu the month of July was due to the fact that the appropriations for the current fiscal year became available July 1. In regard to the specific works that are the subject of inquiry by the resolution, tho department replies in euch ease that they are needed and ex plains why. The resolution also requested the secretary to inform the house whether the contemplated employment of an in creased force at this yard at this time is or is not intended to alTect the approaching congressional elections in Maine, rather than to subserve tho public interests. In reply to this the secretary says that this question calls upon the department to explain its motives in undertaking the particular works at this place and at this time. Tho statements of facts already Riven, he says, rhow that as the works are the subject of inquiry all were urgently required by the exigencies of tho service and four had been specially directed by congress. As to to tho time appointed to do the work, which happens to be coinci dent witli the approach of a congressional election, the course of legislation prevent ed nuy work before July 1, and the local climate is such that it would have been sheer negligence on the part of the depart ment to have postponed it until the mid dle of September. In view, however, of tho character of the interrogatory, in which the house, In di rect terms, asks the head of an executive department whether he has or has not been guilty of a gross abuse of power in public administration, lie says: "I deem it proper, in terms equally direct, to deny that the contemplated employment of such in creased force at the navy yard is intended to afTecttheapproaching election in Maine rather than to subserve the public inter est«, or that any iucreaso of force at any time has been or will tie mado by the navy department under its present administra tion for the purpose of inllueneing an ap proaching election, or for the purpose of electing or defeating any particular candi date; and I have the honor to add that the navy deportment, while pursuing steadily this policy, does not propose that the pro gress of public work directed by law, and by law committed to its charge, shall be interrupted or postponed by the occurrence of an election, or that it shall bo deterred from the performance of what it believes to bo its duty by any fear that unjust and unfounded suspicions may call in question the motives of its action." t .

Mason, Heck with nml Wilson Mixed Up Id rely Keene—Mr. Cannon Accused of Vulgarity. lu a Washington, Aug. 38.—The house met at 11 a. in., but with only eighty-llve mem bers in the hall. About noon a quorum was secured, and then the opponents of the lard bill, led by Mr. Mason, in order to consume time, ordered tho yeas and nays on a motion to dispense with further pro ceedings umler tho call. The reading of the Journal in full, including all the yea and uay votes taken Tuesday, was insisted upon, and consumed more than an hour. At its conclusion Mr. Dingley (Me.) moved its approval and demande«! the previous question, which was ordered—yeas, 108; nays, 50. Discussiou then arose on Mr. Cannon's resolution of Tuesday, naming members who had failed to vote on roll calls. Mr. Turner (N. Y.) made a long speech to kill time. McAdi Mr. McAdoo followed him with a Speech iu criticism of Mr. Cannon, closing With a sarcastic comment on Mr. Cannon's love for the farmer. An expression used by Mr. Cannon in his reply was interpreted by the house as vulgar and was received witii some applause, and there Was in stantly great confusion and disorder in the hall. Mr. McAdoo shouted out that he Wanted the words to go upon the record as a speci men of Mr. Cannon's vulgarity. Mr. Ca ruth (Ky.) suggested the propriety of clear ing the galleries of ladies, while Mr. Enloe was clamoring for recognition on a ques tion of order. Again Mr. McAdoo shouted out to Mr. Cannon: "If you can afford to let that go on the record as a specimen of your stable jockey wit I can afford to leave it there. I cannot indulge in blackguardism with you. You ought to argue with a stable jockey. That is your size." on the War I'ntli. A Largo Sized Row, Mr Euloo was recognized on his point of order, ami demnuded that the words bo t.akcu down. Mr. Cannon re marked: "Oh, if that annoys the gentle man I will withdraw It." After a brief discussion tho speaker overruled tlm poiut of order on the ground that Mr. Enloe's proper course woulil have been to «'all the gentleman to order and not to raise a point of order. Mr. Euloe appealed from the decision, and the clerk proceeded to call the roll on sustaining tho decision of tbe speaker. During the roll cull, Mr. Mason coming down the aisle near which Mr. Cannon was sitting, declared that it Mr. Caunou's family were in the gallery he would not have uttered tlie wonls he had. His (Mason's) family was In th<( gallery und he would not sit tamely by and hear them in sulted. Flually A Blow Struck. Some gentlemen in the vicinity say that the lie was passed, hut before anything more serious occurred the storm broke out in another quarter. Mr. Wilson (Wash.) taking occasion to defend Mr. Cannou's action, aroused the ire of Mr. Beckwith (N. J.). Hot words were exchanged, the lie was given and Mr. Beckwith struck Mi - . Wilson. Friends seized both men find fin ally quieted them. Every Democrat was on his feet thoroughly enjoying the spec tacle of the family quarrel, Mr. Enloe suggesting Hint the housesliouhl adopt the London prize ring rules. It was many minutes before order was restored, and it required a vigorous wielding of tile speak er's gavel before the clerk could proceed with the roll call. Tho decision of the chair was sustained—yeas, 103; nays, 78. Air. Cannon Explains. Mr. Cannon made a long explanation to show thut his remark had not- been made in a vulgar sense, ami that the vulgar con struction put upon it was forced and un natural. He then made an elaborate argu ment in favor of the passage of the lard bill. He said the bill was in such position that unless it was laid aside by unanimous consent no other business could be taken up, and so fares he was concerned no other business should be done until this bill bad been kille«l or passed. The journal was approved—109 to 58. To Arre.t Absentees. Mr. McAdoo was given two minutes in which to reply to Mr. Cannon. He said that th. geutlemau's explanation was ingenious and not ingenuous, and that he had not purged himself of his vulgarity. Mr. Cannon replied that he could add nothing to what he had said. He disclaim ed any intention to use vulgar language. Finally the bouse adopted the resolution offered by Mr. Brosius for the arrest of absentees, directing the sergeant-at-arms to telegraph absent members and revoking leaves of absence, except those granted on account of illness. The bouse then ad journed. _ In tlie Senate. Washington, Aug. 28.—In the senate Mr. Plumb's resolution to prohibit the sale of liquor in the senate wing was dis cussed aud finally referred to the commit tee on rules. The tariff hill was then taken up, the question being on a substitute offere«l by Mr. McPherson Monday for schedule D, "wood and manufactures of wood," which finally went over. Mr. Davis spoke is favor of reciprocal trade re lations with South American conutries, and iu fuvor of placing binding twine on the free list. He sai«l the question affected Minnesota farmers to the extent of $l,0UO t - 000 annually, aud the manufacture of bind ing twine iu this country was in the hands of a combination wiiicii «vas abundantly able to take care of itself. Whet) tho to bacco schedule ««'ns taken up Mr. Vance's amendment to reduce the duty on leaf tobacco suitable for cigar wrappers (if not stemmed) from S3 per pound to 75 cents, and if stemmed, from $2. 75 to $1 per pound, aud other amendments, were rcject<"d. When schedule C (agricultural products and provisions) «vas readied, paragraph 285 in that schedule was, on motion of Mr. Aldrich, made to read, "sheep, one year old or more, (1.50 per head; less than on« year old, 75 cents,per head." Mr. Reagan's proposed subst itute for eertniu paragraphs, to tax horses, mules, jacks, jennies, cattle, hogs, sheep, and all other live animals 25 per cent, ad valorem, was rejected. Mr. Vest characterized the proposed increase as the most transparent, unmitigated hum bug ever attempted iu politics. There «vas not an intelligent man iu the country who did uot know that there «vus no competi tion between foreign cattle and cuttle and cattle raised in the United States.

The Potter-1 xivoll company, ilealers in com mercial paper, has for its president Walter Potter; vise president, Thomas U. Corson; treasurer, W. I). Lovell, and secretary, George W. Terrill. The close connection between the «xmcerns makes it impossible to determine at once the relations of the two concerns to the existing difficulties. It is claimed by friends of the firm that the embarrassment is only temporary. Mr. Walter Potter said his firm hail simply re fused to pay some drafts, that «vas ail. He had no statement to make. Other mem bers of tho firm were equally disinclined to talk. It was stated on other authority that checks of the firm hud beeu thrown out during the day, but this information was ooupksl with the assurance that, there could not be an.absolute failure because of qp existing surplus of (500,009, and that efforts wi re making to raise (200,000 to £KK>,009 to tide over the present difficulties.

"I do not believe he stopped over and looked for me. If he hud ho wo od bave had no difllculty in finding me at my office or at my house, as l am always at nie ona or the other when in Cleveland. He felis a wilful falsehood when he soys other leaders have been unable to find no when they tried to ilo so. Any man who 1 rios to find me whim 1 am iu Cleveland can do so with very little effort, and no man, whether a leader or a private iu the ranks of la law, ever came to my office that he was treated eourttiously.

"When the present trouble on the N*w York Central first occurred I advised the engineers to abstain from all participa; lou in It, and to attend strictly to their o «vu business. "I gave the same advice when the strike occurred ou the Gould system a few years ago. My advice to the Brotherhood of Engineers when men employed in ot her branches of railroad service have been mi a strike was to mind their own busiui-s and not do anything that did not properly belong to them as engineers. Can dr. I'owderly say the same? 1 think uoi. Whenever the engineers have been on a strike wo never asked any ether labor or ganization fo assist us. III. Ground, for Neutrality. "It is true some members of the oi-ilsr during the Chicago, Burlington and Q liu cy strike importuned the switchmen to quit, but they diil it on thnir o«vn respon sibility nnd not by the authority of the or ganization.

Y., Aug. 2a— That the strike on the Now York Central is dead is. apparent to everybody here. Business on the road has resumed its normal condition, and but for some little delay in bundling cars for connection no one would know that a strike had been in progress. A tour among the firemen and swffchineo of other roads was convincing of tha fact that none of them would go out on account of the present strike. The switchmen were the most indignant ones to ho found among the striki re Th» statements made by Grand Master riuveney that the strike of the local switchmen «vu» justified, nnd then neglecting to support them, rankled in their breasts.
