DAWES ANTS THE TESTIMONY OF EX-AGENT IRWIN - DEFEAT OF ROLL1N WHITE'S PATENT EXTENSION. THrnsDAr, DECEJinsnll, 1874. The Senate was not In session to-day. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. In the House, on motion of Mr. Hooper, of Mass., the Senate bill appointing George Ban croft a regent of the Smithsonian institute, Ties Wm. T. Sherman, resign"1, was taltcn up and lasscd. The Senate amendment to the bill for the bind ing of extra copies ol the revised statutes was concurred in. Mr. Orr, of Iowa, from the Committee on Pub lic Lands, reported back tbe bill for the relief or settlers on public lands in Iowa, Minnesota and Nebraska whoso lands were devastated by grass hoppers. Passed. It autborlies tho settlers to bo absent from their lands without prejudice to their titles or claims. The rcgnlar order was demanded, and the Sjieakcr announced that the business in order was the bill lorthe relief or BOLLIX WHITE, which came over from last session. Mr. Holman, of lnd had read the rule which declares that all bjsiness coming over from a previous session shall be considered after the Homo shall be in session six days. Mr. Kellogg, of Conn., Inquired whether Mr. Holman wanted to obstruct the business of the House by making this objection. Mr. Holman said he only desired to have the rules of the House cnlorced. 1 be Speaker ruled that there was nothing la the rule to prevent the bill being considered now. The bin was then taken up. It authorizes the extension of a patent for fire-arms. VACIMC MAIL. Pending: the consideration or the bill. Mr. air field, ol Ohio, rose to a personal explanation, and bad read an editorial from Ue New York Tribune, in which it was alleged that the first steal or the session hnd come up in the shape of the subsidy fur the 1-aclflo Mall, and that it had come up In the sh'.ijo olan appropriation in the Post Oifico appropriation bill coming from General Gar field's coinmittie. Mr. Garfield said bo did nst presume that the editor or the Trfdune Intended to do him an intentional Injury he was misled by some correspondent in New Y ork. The decla ration in the article Is that this Is a half million steal, and lurtlier down It is called a robbery, and it Is intimated that the subject is now before tl e Houso. Ho did not need to say here lor all the mem bers wero awuro ol the fact that tie Committee on Appropriations bad not yet reported the Poll OIllco bill. It lias not even been taken up In tho committee, and he (Mr. Garfield) had not even examined the estimate ol the Post Office Depart ment. The Committees of Appropriations or bo'U Houses met during tho recess, and their attentl n was particularly called to two matters. One was the great cost attending tbe collection of the customs revenue, and the other was the dcrlcineies continually arising In tho Post Oiflce Depart ment. Sub-committees wero appointed to exam ine both these matters, and the Committee on Appropriations will not act upon either matter until alter the sub-committees shall havo re poi ed. A lew days ago Mr. Tyner, who has cl i -go of the Post Office bill, requested that the en mittee would not take it up until after tho hoii lay recess In view or this statement of facts he could not see how the Trioune couM charge that t) c commltteo was engaged la a half-mil. lien steal, or that the lour weeks or hard work la which Ibe committee was engaged bad been de voted to mercenary or dishonorable purposes. He made this statement to show on what slight accounts members were charged with dishonor able actions. , Mr. Tvner, of Ind., said that last year tho Post master General, In his annual report. Informed the House that the Pacific Mall Company had not complied with tbelrcontract,and consequently no action was taken on the subsidy In last year's bill. This year tho Postmaster General called attention to tho matter by an opinion which he obtained from the Attorney General. All that be (Mr. Tyner) ever had to do wi h the matter at this session w as to move that the opinion of the Attorney General be printed. He had not even read tbe opinion. AN IM ESTIMATION DEMANDED. The bill for tbe rellel of Rollln White was then resumed. In the course ot the discussion Mr. Hale, or New York, charged that the parties Interested In opposing this bill had been guilty ol contempt and dishonest measures, and had spent money with such a lavish band that It should be Inves tigated by the House. Ho xnado this charge or corruption on his personal responsibility. Mr. Dawes said that.H thtwas the case, It was the duty or the gentleman to demand a thorough lu estlgatlon. Ho (Mr. Dawes) doubted the lact- Mr. Hale said he did not allude to members of the present House. The advocates ol the bill contended that this was cot an extension ot the patent, bnt simply proposed to give Mr. White a day In court to as certain whether bis claim was a Just one. The opponents contended that Mr. Whlto bad already received all the advantages that could accrue under tbe patent laws, and that to extend the patent would be unjust toother manufac turers or arms and to tbe people at large. The bill was rejected, on ordering the main question, by a vote ol 68 yeas to 12S cays. RICHARD B. IBWIX. Mr. Dawes, ol Mass., rose to a privileged ques tion, and said that the last Congress authorised tbe then Committee or Ways aud Means to Inves tigate certain charges ol coiruptlon against the Pacific Mall Steamship Company. Last cession the investigation was continued, bnt the commit tee tailed to find Richard 11. Irwin, who was the agent or the company In Washington at the time the subsidy was passed. The testimony taken by the Committee of Ways and Means to-day shows that the Pacific Mall Company had also made efforts to find lrwln, but had been nnable to do so. A day ortwoago the committee ascertained his whereabouts, and caused his arrest. At 10 o'clock last night he (Mr. Dawes) received a telegram Ircm Irwin, stating that pressing business would prevent him from answering the committee's sum mons until Thursday next. To-day a telegram was received that he was too sick to come to Washington. In view or these conflicting state ments, and tho fact that Irwin had been so hard to find, tbe committee bad directed a resolution to be offered for a warrant ordering his arrest. He was an Important witness, and if be should escapo again the committee wanted tbe House, and not tbe committee, to be responsible. If it was shown that he was really ill, he would cot be proceeded against for contempt when the writ was returned. Mr. Beck, or Ky., hoped it would be distinctly understood that this witness could not be found when wanted, and that Mr. Stockwell, the then president of the company, reigned to be or really was Insane, and had also escaped to Europe. Mr. Randall, of Pa., asked ir It was not a fact '.hat this man Irwin was In this city a few days JgO. Mr. Dawes replied that this was news to blm. The telegrams rererred to by Mr. Dawes were then read. , . , Mr. Phelps, of N. J , also bad read a telegram frum Irwin, In wblcb the latter complained that he was 111 and said the baste or the committee was simply brutal; that he was annoyed by hourly telegrams, and tbat H tbe commlttoe wanted more security Tor bis appearance te would fur nish It. Mr. Phelps said Irwin was a constituent of his, and be believed him to be honest and trustworthy. Ho believed Mr. Irwin to be tbe victim of the company whose servant be bad been. To shield themselves the Pacific Mall Company had brought these charges against Mr. Irwin. He has always been eager to make his defence, and be came from Europe for that purpose. When he went to Europe it was for his health. Ills whereabouts were known, and If bis lawyers bad been approached on tbe subject bis presence could have been secured at anytime, lie (Mr. Pbelps) knew that Mr. Irwin was anxious for a bearing, and be believed bis statement that be was 111. Mr. Dawes said when Mr. Irwin came from Europe the steamship company had him arrested, because he stated that be would return to Europe on tbe following Saturday. Mr. Butler, or Mass., suggested tbat If Mr. Irwin was really ill tbe marshal could bold him in custody at bis residence. Mr. Phelps did not see why he should be treated as a criminal when there was no evidence tbat be wanted to leave. Mr. Beck asked Mr.Pbelps lfhe knew why Mr. Irwin did not appear last year. Mr. Pbelps knew tbat ho was In Europe, but did cot know tbat be was there to escape arrest. Mr. Beck said all tbe European steamers sailed to-morrow, and be firmly believed that Irwin would go to Europe again If not arrested. Mr. Kassoo, or Iowa, said tbe fact tbat Irwin bad avowed his purpose or going to Europe again did not look as though be came here purposely to have a trial. Tbe resolution ordering a warrant to Issue for bis arrest was tben adopted. Mr. G. F. Hoar called attention to thepubllclty tbat bad been given ibis matter, and he offered a resolution directing the Judiciary Committee to frame a general law, authorising tbe arrest of parties who disobey the subpoenas of tbe House, without so much publicity, and thus giving par ties an opportunity to escape. Belerred. ITIBCILLAKXOrS. Mr. Bromberg, of Ala., Introduced a bill to re move tbe political disabilities of B. U. Murphy and John A. Brown, of Alabama. Passed. Mr. O'Brien, of Md., Introduced a bill direst log tbe proper accounting officers of tbe Treasury to pay Nicholas H. Lamdln, assistant engineer U.S. N., for clothing and effects lost by the sink ing of tbe Vlrglnlus. Referred to tbe Naval Committee. Tbe House then, at 4:50 p. m., adjourned until Monday.

This order Is tbe resnlt or consultation yester day between Judges McCuc, Nellson and Rey nolds as to whether this term could be prolonged lor the bearing or tho trial. Jndge McOue to-day, in the Brooklyn City Court, granted a bearing on the motion rora bill or particulars In the Tllton-Beeeher suit, grant ing tho order applied for, with certain limita tions. jrDOE V'CCE'8 DECISION. The following is the text of tbe decision ot Judge McCne, or tbe City Court or Brooklyn, on' tbe motion or Beecber's counsel for a bill of par ticulars In the Tilton suit: The court of last resort bas decided tbat this court has the power to order a bill or particulars in all descriptions or actions when the circum stances aro such tbat justice demands that the party shall be apprised of the matter for which be is to be put on trial with greater particularity than Is required by the rules of pleading. Appli cation Is cow made by tho defendant for a state ment In writing, verified by the plaintiff, of the particular times and places at which he expect or Intends to proro the commission of any crim' nal acts between the defendant and plaintiff's wire. After a careful examination or the papers submitted on the motion, and alter deliberating upon tbe able and suggestive arguments or coun sel, I am or tho opinion that tbe present case Is a proper one Tor tbe exerclso or judicial discretion, and that the plaintiff can, without any Injustice to hlmscir, give tho derendant tbe Information desired by him se as to enable blm to prepare fully to meet tboplalntlfl's charges. The law imposes no impossibility, and does not require from the plalnurf tbe designation or the precise day at tbe hazard of failure ofjustlce, IT be rail to prove tbe act upon the precise day named. It is sufficient ir be designates a day within such reasonable approximation, so that the defendant Is fairly apprised of tbe charges. In view of tbe affidavit ot plaintiff read on this motion, It will be sufficient for hlLi to state in tbe bill of particulars to be furnished tbat tbe two acts of criminal' In timacy alleged have taken place on the loth and i 17th days of October, 1SS8, were committed on or t about those days at either one or the other of the places mentioned In the affidavit; or, as suggested by one ortbe connsel for derendant, it may be re garded as sufficient to say tbat these acts were committed during the month or October, 1SS3. Su:h statement fairly acquaints the derendant with tbe charge he Is to meet. I think It not Im proper to remark here that the frankness with which tbe defendant's counsel concede that such statement may be regarded as a reasonable com pliance with tbe rule proper to be applied In such a case as tbis renders tbis application more easy or dlsposlton than it seemed to be when tbe mo tion was first made. At the special term the ob jection to giving a statement or particulars seems to remain mainly upon tbe ground that the des ignation or particular acts of adultery, or at any particular place, while on tbe other band tbe de fendant Insists tbat if by tbe acts It is Intended to prove specific acts oladaltery tbe bill or particu lars should state these racts with tbe same fair ness with reference to the time, place and cir cumstance as Is suggested in relation to tbe two acts alleged to have been committed In tho month of October, 1868. I cannot well understand how any act of the defendant can be offered as prov ing directly and specifically tbe adulterous Inter course charged in tbe complaint. Although It may not thereby appear to have been committed on any particular day or at any particular time, cucb seems to be plaintiff's proposition. Such proof would necessarily cot only estab lish the commission of adultery, but also with some degree of certainly both the time and place. Tbere Is no practical difficulty In reconciling this apparent antagonism as to necessarily exclude the proof or tbe confessions made by tbe derend ant going to establish an act of adultery when no time or place was named In tbe confession. Tbe general confessions of defendant may be given In evidence against himself, as tbey maybe suffi cient If accepted In full force by tho jury to con vict tbe defendant, and It Is clear that all the declarations, writing! and documents which are properly admissible .si evidence may be used with all tbe force andeffuet they deserve against tbe defendant to establish ihe main issue. Tbe radical differn.ee in the proposed orders submitted by the respective counsel ssems to be tbis: Tbe plaintiff ti slsts tbat be shall cot be precluded from giving the evidence of the acts of defendant by which the adulterous Intercourse charged In tbe complaint may be established, al though it nay cot thereby appear to have been committed on any particular day, or as declared by tbe court of last resort In tbe decision made in this case. Tbe Court must see to it that both parties are fairly dealt with. If the plaintiff pro poses to prove any specified acts of adultery al leged to have taken place in October, 1883, It should be so stated. If the plaintiff does not propose this, It is no hardship to limit him to the proof of tho specific charges which ho Intends to press. The plaintiff's proposition that If be be thus limited and fall In his proofs as to tho acts alleged to have taken place In October, 1SS3, tbe derendant, though confessing bis guilt as to other times and places, must necessarily be acquitted, seems to me entirely untenable. In tho shape in which the former motion was made there was force in the objection, lor it was then asked that tbo plaintiff should be confined In bis proofs to the times mentioned In the bill of particulars. On tbe present application, however, it is not sought to deprive the plaintiff of the benefit ot tbe general confession of the defen dant. Such rule might, Indeed, shield a defendant from the just responsibility. We propose no such re straint as to tbe specific acts of the crime charged against the defendant. He should be advised of them with reasonable precision as to the results which may follow tbe proofs of tbe act, (other than the specific acts ot adultery,) the documents, confessions and any other circumstances properly admissible In tbe evidence. They must be left to the determination of the Jury under the rules laid down by tbe court on tbe trial. I am of opinion, therefore, first, tbat the plain tiff should be limited as to his proofs or the spe cific acts of adultery to those earned by him la his bill of particulars ; secood, tbat this order Is cot to be construed as prohibiting the plaintiff from Introducing In the trial of the action tbe testi mony which may be admissible under tbe general rules of evidence as to any acts, (other than the specific acts of adultery,) declarations, writings, documents and confessions, even If no particular time or place shall bave been referred to. INDIAN TALK. PEACE COMMISSIONERS IN COUNCIL. MrsKOGEB, Dee. 1L The United States peace commissioners arrived here at 4 a. m. to-day on a special train.

The Idea did not seem to meet the approval of the Indiana present. A eomnlttee or Indian delegates, two from each nation, are preparing a report.

The committee will go southward In about ten days, and be In session at New Orleans at the period of the assemblage of tbe Louisiana Legis lature, when tbe White League proposes to em ploy Us bayonets In seating such orits candidates as are honestly declared not elected by the re turning board.

Tbe following special dispatch was telegraphed from this city to tbe New York Evening Poit by Its enterprising correspondent, Mr. W. Scott Smith: "A report was privately circulated last eight among a lew friends ot the Administration that Secretary Brlstow and tbe President were at va riance over tbe appointment of a financial agent at LcndoL, and that It might develop into a se rious breach between them. " Ex-Senator Cattell, who bas held tbe posi tion, which was created for tbe sole purpose or looking after tbe Interests of tbe Government In connection with the syndicate, desired a reap pointment, but Mr. Brlstow is cot disposed to ap prove ortbe selection. Mr. Cattell's rriends, and, among others. Secretary Robeson, took the mat ter to the President, who gave him the assurance tbat Cattell should bave tbe position, and in formed Mr. Brlstow of his wishes; The latter was, however, cot disposed to yield, and Is said to have protested, and then Intimated that, as Secretary of the Treasury, he could cot consent to be overruled In this matter.

Tbe affair bss occasioned much comment," Ac Tbe attention or Secretary Brlstow was called to the above statement at a late hour last night, and In reply he said: "So far as I am advised the report Is untrue." OBITUARY. JAMES J. MUBPHY. James J. Murpby, for many years one of the official stenographers of the United States Sen. ate, died at his residence, In Philadelphia, oa Friday last, tbe 4th Instant. Mr. Murpby was well known in this city, bis long connection with the Senate making him almost a permanent resi dent of tbe District. Tbe Evening Star ot Phila delphia thus speaks of tbe deceased: Mr. Murphy was a graduate of our Central High School during tbe regime of Professor Hart. Under tbe tuition of Professor Kirkpatrlck, bo became remarkably proficient In the Pitman sys tem of phonography. When quite a young man bo succeeded, in connection with his brother Dea ds, to the responsible trust of officially reporting the proceedings or Congress. The trust was faithfully fulfilled, and for many years "the Mur phy brothers" have been famed throughout tbe country for the marvelous fidelity ot their re ports. Tbe deceased wai as estimable In his private as he was falthlnl in his official character. He was a thorough gentleman, modest, unassuming, de voted to his family, and as utterly unselfish as any man that ever lived. Being of a nervous organisation, and filling a position which required, for pre-eminence, a con stant nervous tension, bis death, we presume, was primarily tbe cause of nervous prostration Several of the ablest physicians la the city au tended him and made his case a special study, In tbe vain hope of restoring him to health. About a week ago it was supposed that he was dying, and the last rites of the Church were given him; Immediately be rallied, and to the last retained full possession of his keen mental faculties. His suflerlngs toward the close were severe, and It must afford a consolation to bis stricken family however sad a consolation It may be to feel that he Is at last at perfect rest, and that be died the death of tbe righteous. "He gWethhli beloved sleep." Tbe funeral took place on Wednesday last, and wai largely attended. The services were held at St. Michael'! Catholic church, Philadelphia, of wblcb the late Mr. Murphy was a consistent and devout member. CONSTRUCTIVE DAMAGES CLAIMED.

In this communi cation tbe Count maintained that after be was placed on the retired list he was no longer amen able to the disciplinary powes of the Foreign Office. Herr Schevon, a secretary of the German Legation at Paris, testified that be first learned that tbe documents were missing from Baron Holsteln, also a secretary, who was searching the archives for Prince Hohcnlohe, tbe ambassador.

Count Von Arnlm was Interrogated with refer ence to the authorship of certain newspaper arti cles attributed to him. He admitted he author ised the publication in tbe Brussels Echo De Par lanrnt a statement that he was about to resign the ambassadorship because of tbe treatment re ceived from the Parisian society. He said he wonld call Secretary of State Thilo to prove that the Foreign Office asked whether he wanted this news to appear In tbe German papers. He after wards denied the authorship or tbe Item in order to mitigate tbe Impression It produced. He ac knowledged tbe authorship of the letter In the Cologne Gazette, and admitted be wished to In fluence tbo press. Ho also acknowledged the letter to Dr. Bollinger was his, but retused to answer any questions In relation to the revela tions In the Vienna Peene, for fear of compromis ing others. Herr Braun, formerly proprietor of the Spener Gazette, testified that in May last Herr LI o don on behalf of Arnlm, requested the publication of an article. Herr Zchllcke, the editor, repeated tbe testimony given by the preliminary Inquiry.

THE LIFE OF KIXO KALAKAUA. Kalakaua, King of the Sandwich Islands, was born In Honolulu, November 19, 1838. Conse quently, on tbe coming anniversary of bis birth be will be thirty-eight years ol age. He Is tbe sonol tbe Hon. C. Kapaakea and tbe late high ehlefess, Keohokalole, who have a long and hon orable line of ancestry descended from the high chiefs of ancient sovereigns. They left two sons, David, cow King of Hawaii, and William Pitt Lelelohoku, heir apparent to the throne, and two daughters, the Princess Lydla Domlnls, wife of Governor John O. Domlnls, and tbs Princess Miriam Llkelike Cleyhorn, wife or Hon-A-S. Cleyhorn. The two eldest children, David and Lydla, were educated at tie Boyal school under the care of the late Amos S.Cooke and Mrs. Cooke, where were also educated the three late kings, Kamehameba IV. and V., and Lunalllo. It may be safely said that no Hawaltans bave been more highly educated than the children of Kapaakea, and each or them Is as COXTERSAXT WITH THE EXOLISR LAXOUAOE as with the Hawaiian. All or them are exeellent musicians, and Mrs. Domlnls is the authoress or one of the finest, probably the best, or the Hawaiian national airs, known as "Ka Lahul Hawaii." His Majesty was elected King or tbe Hawaiian Islands on the 12th ir February, 1S74, by tbe Na tional Legislature, a body composed of the cobles and representatives of tbe people, the King receiving all but six votes, which were cast for tbe only other candidate. Queen Dowager Emma, widow of Kamehameba IV. Since his accession to the throne he has shown. In bis ad dresses to the people and to the Legislature, which held a session of three months' duration during the summer, a desire to adopt measures which will tend to Increase the population of his kingdom, and to bring It In closer relations with neighboring countries.

The lower branch or Garland's Legislature has passed a bill which legalises as valid tbe payments made for school lands In Confederate money. This deprives tbo school fund of a very large sum.

But tbe Garland constitution especially avoid! any repudiation of Confederacy proceed ing!, although repudiating debts made sicca the war. And this robbery or the school fund meets co opposition from tbe White Leaguers now In control. They hare already annihilated tt e free schools In tbe State, those In tbis city having; been closed recently. The State's money Is being expended In supporting soldiery, and armed men stalk around tbe State-house while the Legisla ture Is in session. Stoddard Brothers A Co., bankers here, sus pended to-day.
