THEIBILL PASSED FINALLY ASREPORTED PASSAGE OF THE MOIETY BILL-SENATORS CARPENTER AND FENTON EX-TLAIN-EFFORTS TO REACH THE CIVIL RIGHT!! BILL MISCELLANEOUS MAT TERS. TncitSDAT, Juas 18, 1871. SENATE. Mr. SPENCEB, from the commlttco of confer ence on the bill to correct data of commissions of certain officers of tho army, which advances MaJ. Wm. Myers, of the quartermaster's department, on the army register, made a report;" which was concurred In. Mr. SCOTT called up the conference report on the jioia-rr Bin Mr. SARGENT called attention to the fact that the moiety bill, as passed by the Senate, fixed the salaries of the collectors at Boston, New York and San Francisco, leaving the salary at Philadelphia as at present. The conference com mittee Cad reduced the salary at San Francisco, and put Philadelphia over it. It looked as ir the Senator rrom Pennsylvania Mr. Scott had ex ercised a kind of fatherly care over Philadelphia, for which he gavo him credit. Mr. SCOTT said the Senator frem California has exercised a fatherly care over San Francisco, for which he gave him, credit. Mr. SAKQENT. I did not have the adran tago of being on the conference committee, though. Mr. SCOTT said the Senate bill fixed salares ol collectors at Boston, New York and San Fran cisco. When the bill went to the House Phila delphia was Inserted. The question was raised In the conference as to whether the committee had jurisdiction or the salary question, and It was decided In the affirmative. The salaries Were then adjusted to correspond with the reduction- ny ine aaopuon ot moieties, ise moieties in aau Francisco were but tiOOO last year, while In Phil adelphia thev were 130,000. Mr. S AHQENT did not object to Philadelphia belns? Inserted, but he did object to this degrada tion or San Francisco. Mr. WEST said Now Orleans had also been de graded and reduced below Philadelphia, which he did not understand. Mr. HOWE opposed the adoption of the report. He said the report made the reuenue laws less efficacious than formerly. It was in opposition to the views of many honest merchants. The pro visions for penalties were so loose that they never could be enforced, and any officer undertaking to enforce them would be called infamous. In pro ceeding in his remarks, Mr. Hows Inquired why the salary of the collector of New York should be placed at .li000 per annum, when that of the Secretary of the Treasury was t8,000 per annum. Mr. CONKLINO said ho could mention one reason. The pecuniary responsibility of the col lector at New York was enormous, amounting at times to hair a million a day. He was responsi ble, not only for himself, but for his army ot subor dinates. There was not an Insurance company in the land that would Insure the sum for which the collector at New Yoik Is liable at a premium no greater than the amount fixed as his salary. Mr. HOW.E said the Treasurer of the United States and the Assistant Treasurer at New York did not get so much salary, and yet their pecu niary liability was fully equal to that of the New York collector. Mr. CARPENTER said the effect of the bill from beginning to end was in the Interest of the smugglers. It was the tenderest drawn bill he had ever met with. He then alluded to a criti cism In the editorial columns of the New York irorld In his appointment of theconferenco commit tee on the moiety bill. -The H'orld abused him for putting his colleague Mr. Hows) on this com mittee, aud also abused his collea&ue. He re joiced at this, because he had been abused so long sua. is n as rcitesiuug vu ua iusw iu auusucr auu have the lash fall on both together. The IVorld had denounced him for not appointing all the members or. the conference committee from the Finance Committee, and alleged that he had de parted from the usage of the Senate. Mr. Carfzbtxr then showed that according to parliamentary usage it was his duty to appoint on the oonrerenoe committee members represent ing both sides of the question. Before appointing the conference committee he had consulted with the chairjnan'or the Finance committee, Mr Sherhak, and that Senator had approved of the selection which he had made. The article in the World further said that he Mr. 0.1 had been tel egraphed for as counsel of Harvey, the spy,and had gone on to New York and given Harvey valuable legal legal advice. All this was entirely untrue. He had never received any telegraph In this con- uiiclleu, isirtltiacrnev9i a.oue i. New Yuik eu auy 4 sucn Business, ana naa never aiuea in me prose cution against Phelps, Dodge & Co. He opposed the moiety bill because he considered it ruinous to the revenue and an encouragement to smug- flers. but when occupying the chair it was always is effort to be governed by DarUamentarr rules and usage. Mr. SHERMAN corroborated entirely the statement ofMr.OARrxaTXB as to the appoint ment of the conference committee, and said It was in exact accordance with the rules or the Senate. After some further discussion the report of the conference committee was concurred In, without a division. thi wrw bill ros ths district. Mr. ALLISON stated that unless the new Dis trict bill was taken up to-day it could not be passed at this session.

Mr. CONKLINO said he had also observed this statement, which had first originated in an ob scure print of a local and limited circulation; but, after the fashion so prevalent In these times, it had been reprinted over and aver In other papers.

Tho noxt amendment or the committee, to strike out the appropriation to Setltla Elsey and Maria H. Tnrpin, tifiti each, was agreed to. Also, amendment referring back the case of W bitty M.

Mr. ALLISON then called up the bill to re model the government of the District or Colum bia. The bill was read, when Mr. Allisos said the bill was the result or the most careful consid eration br the committee: if had been nnanl. aously agreed to by the committee, and had passeatheHouse almost unanimously. He hoped the bill would be passed without amendment. Mr. WINDOm moved an amendment appro priating gt40,000, for the purpose of paying the BttrklngBifia employed on the Dahlia works under the control of the Board of Publio Works, but withdrew the amendment on the statement oi jur. Allisos that the committee had recommended an appropriation or one million dollars. Mr. SARGENT moved to amend the second section by providing tbatoneorthe three commis sioners shall be designated as president of the commission, to be styled the Governor. Mr. ALLISON said there was no necessity whatever for this; that the commission was only to be a temporary atialr. Mr.THURMAN said the only object or this amendment seemed to be to create a dignity for some ope. It was hoped that tho President would appoint three honest, careful, sensible men to this commission: men wbo would not care for any such titlo as Governor. The great object now should be to lift the District out of its present dis tress. What was wanted was simple, honest men, who would look after the Jatercsts of the Deonle. and care nothinir for titles. The Governor never ought to have been a member of any of these Doarus. a no OB-jeci ot tnis commission vias to audit tho accounts of this District, accounts which had not been audited for three years, or from the beginning ot the present government. The accounts of none of the departments of this i.'overnment agreed with the other. Mr. HAMLIN conceded to the select committee all the anility and Industry which they deserved, but he indicated that he did not think tbe bill covered everything. He thought some provision should have been made for the funding or the floating debt. In regard to tbe temporary char acter ot the new government, it might last lor a year or two, and therefore fie thought tbe amend ment of Mr. Sakgext was a proper one, and he would rote for it. The amendment was rejected ayes 12, nays 38, the affirmatives being Messrs. Boot, Ulavtox, CONOVER, HAXLIli, KXLLT, MITCHELL, MORRILL of Me., Oolesbt, Patterson, Sakqest, Wis dom and Joii!sto:t. Mr. SARGENT moved an amendment to the sixth section, striking out that portion providing that the First and Second Comptrollers of the Treasury shall constitute a board of audit, and providing that tho Secretary or the Treasury shall designate three or his sdbordlnates to con stitute the board of audit. Mr. ALLISON said the committee had care fully considered this matter, and were satisfied that the two officers mentioned wero the proper ones to audit the accounts. It was, of course, expected that they would do the details or the worx mainiy inrougn suuoramaics, dui uu uuu esty and efficiency of these officers was so well known that there was no danger that they would put their signatures to anything which they did not know to be right. Mr. SARGENT said too much'was left to the subordinates and no restriction was placed upon tbem. Tbe amendment of Mr. Saboxxt was rejected, receiving only four rotes. The bill was then passed without amendment. The Senate then, at C20 o'clock, on motion of Mr. HAMLIN,went Into executive session. Alter a short time tho doors were reopened.

Mr. Garfield said the bill as It wasuowrspoTtid.ffimTthe conference appro priated 21,003,474.eo, which was about hall a mil lion more thanwhen it left the House, but about one hair of this was in official postage stamps, which was a mere matter of bookkeeping. Aside from this the increase was but about $250,000 above what it was when it left the House, and it was 117,nqless than .it was when It left the Senate. In relation to the office of the Publio Printer, a compromise was effected and, a clause lnsertedxepeallnz, tbe present law at the date of meHrst f acaRy- lnrthe-n5cesTterlifrti'-Jlie-office Is to be filled by appointment by the Presi dent.

He asked that the bill be taken from the tablo and referred to the Judi ciary Committee, and would not claim the right to report it back at any time. jur. 1-k.uii, oi t. v., inquired If he would report the Senate bill at this session. Mr. O. E. HOAR said he should object to the conference if the condition was it should not be reported back. Mr. BUTLEB said he wanted to get the bill uus ui mo vTisj ui umer Business on me taoie. While he would not reDort back ths Sunata hill he gave notice that he would report ths House bill before the closo of the session, at ha had a right to renort that at anv time. rs.. .- . zl - uojecuon was maae, ana us mil was not taken up.

Mr. POLAND, of Vt, de-Ired to submit a prop osition In relation to the business on the Speakers table. It was manifest that no business could be done, except by a two-third vote, so long as the civil rights bill was on tbe table.' The question had been tested twice, and the bill could not be fiassed by a two-third vote. He yielded to no one a his desire to hare tho bill passed, but It was useless to struggle longer over the Senate bill. Ho therefore submitted a proposition to goto u'uiuih vu ui, kyca3r tauic.ao tnat wuen.ino civil rights bill was reaehed it should ha mr,mut to the Judiciary Committee, with the understand ing mat it snoniu not oe reported back, except by a two-third vote. That would leave the bill prac tically ss it was now, tor no party advantage would be gained. Mr. G. F. HOAB objected, because Mr. Pc- lakp b proposition wouia aeprive the DUI or tbe advantage it had on the Speaker's table. As It was now co business could be transacted. Tbe constitutional majority was in favor or the bill, and he desired that those who wanted to do so should take the responsibility of stopping legis lation by preventing the constitutional majority from passing a bill it desired to pass. Mr. BECK, of Ky., said he was one wbo took thai responsibility, and he would stop ail legis lation before he would permit that bill to pass. Pending further consideration. Mr. E. H. ROBEBTS, of N. I submitted the conference report on the moiety bill; which was agreed to without discussion. Mr. WILSON, or Iowa, moved to adjourn, and tbe motion was agreed to: and the House, at 320 o'clock p. m., adjourned till to-morrow, thus cut ting off tbe night session previously ordered.

Tbe" total number or cases which hare been relerred to this commit tee, this session, has been 1,100, or only 135 less for this one session than were referred to this committee for the three sessions of the Forty-second Congress, when the number reached 1,235".

Six Inches of rain are said to hare fallen in about fours. -The culvert was in good order, and so far as I can see is so now. The rain fell in such torrents that it choked tho culvert, and ths water apparently rose so blgh that it soaked through tne bank and finally broke it- All this work ot construction was done in 1SC0 or 1881. tod the bank is hard and solid all about the culvert. and stood perhaps a thousand rains before. As tne rails were r.ot carnnu away witn tno Dana, but remained sul-ended with tbe cross-ties hang ing in their places, and the break in the bank not being longer than the engine and tender, ths en gineer saw nothing wrong until he was upon It. Besides this it is at the end or a cut and curve that prevented it from being seen until within two hundred feet. S. L. Frxmost, Chief Engineer and Superintendent. Galvln, the engineer, died ot his wounds, nd Ms remains reached bore this afternoon. The balance of the wounded are reported better, with a strong hope of ultimate recovery. ocean'cables.
