When tho Senate met yesterday tUo chair
lolil before tho eight senators present a
resolution of tho Now York protluoo ex
change, asking Congress to nuke liberal
provision for tho signal service, and nobody
objecting, tho resolution was appropriately
referred. Senator Eustls then aroso and
offered a resolution, which was referred to
tho flnanco committee, Involving the very
radical proposition of Instructing tho Bccra'
tary of tho Treasury to pay tho February
bond pall In silver dollars. By this tlmo a
dozen or mors senators had put In an ap
pearance, and Senator Ingalls had no dim
Unity In getting them all to consent that
when tbo Bcnato adjourned It should bo
until noon of Monday.
..Senator Harrison then took tho floor and
slated that ho had changed tho text of Sen.
ator Voorliccs' resolution providing for an
Investigation of tho pension ofllco In such
a manner that ho thought would elicit tho
approval and consent of his colleague. A
ronferenco between tho two Iloosler son
Mors ensued, tho result being that It was
greed that tho resolution should go over
ontll Mon'Isv.
Mr. Van Avyck's resolution calling on thd
Metropolitan Street Hallroad Company for
n statement of Its receipts and oxpomllturcs
then camo up, whereupon Mr. l'lumb of
fered a substltuto requiring tho District
committee to call upon all tho Washington
street railway companies for such reports
as tho law requires of them, and to ascer
tain why such reports havo not bcon made.
'I ho substltuto was adopted, after It had
been extended so as to embrace what steps
nro necessary to compel tho roads to adopt
tho most approved modern stylo of rails,
traction power, and car acconimodatlons.
A dcbnto then followed on n bill for the
relief of ono of tbo sureties of a secretary
of tho territory of Arizona, who had inailo
expenditures which tho Treasury Depart
ment bad disallowed, suit having been
hrought against tho surety on behalf of tho
government nearly sixteen years after tho
lEallowmcnt.
, A rather Interesting debate, followed, In
wuvvi .Messrs. Harris, Hoar, uawioy, .Man
tlcreon, Voorliccs, and others enoko lor tho
hill, on tbo ground that thcro bad been no
default on tho part of thooOlccr, tho money
having been expended In good faith, but
tho expenditures dlsallowod by tho depart
ment. Notwithstanding the dlsallowanco,
however, tho Treasury Department hail
taken no action for fourteen years, and
mcanwhllo one of the sureties had bocomo
Insolvent. Tbo advocates of tho bill
claimed that tho government had bcon
guilty of laches In asserting Its claim,
wen were tho claim ono thai
on Its merits entitled tbo government
to osscrtlt. Tho fact that tho government
permitted no statuto of limitations to run
sgalnst It In matters of claims was com
mented on, especially by Messrs. Hawlcy
nnd Mandcrsou tho latter senator express
ing tbo belief that a failure by tho govern
ment to assert Its claims w Ituln a period of
fivo years should estop It from assorting
the claims hereafter against the sureties of
a government defaulter.
Mr. Hawlcy, too, expressed tho bailor
that Congress should provldo somo means
by which a private citizen could suo tho
f;ovcrnmcnt In proper cases. Ho thought
t a great wrong upon citizens that thoy
should bo without redress In cases of meri
torious claims against tho government.
Mr. Morrill and Mr. Dolph opposed the
bill on tho ground that It was a uangorous
precedent to set, and would cxposo tho
government to multitudinous claims.
On tbo suggestion of Mr. Edmunds, at 2
o'clock, tho bill went over ono day, and tho
Utah bill was taken up, and Us considera
tion proceeded with.
Mr. Edmunds created somo merriment on
rising to speak on ono of tho amendments
offered yesterday. Looking about him,
nnd finding comparatively tow Republicans
In their scats, ho said:
"As hardly any of tho 'friends of human
liberty' aro fn tho Senate, I vt HI address my
self to tho 'reform' men."
After somo dobato Mr, Brown's amend
ment, offered yesterday, which was to srlko
out the words that would compel tho law
ful husband or wife of tho accused to testify
Vf as rejected 'yeas II, nays -13' and Jtbo
compulsory provision was tbcreforo ro-
isinca in mo mil. ,.
Mr. Morcan saw no authority In Congress
to appoint trustees to manago a church
business. Ho characterized such trustees
us "mugwump Mormons." They would bo
occupied necessarily, ho said, In promoting
Mormonlsm as ho interpreted tbo bill un
der consideration for they were to oxorclso
all tho powers granted by tho territorial
laws creating tho corporation.
Sir. Edmunds replied that thoy had noth
ing whatever to do with church matters or
matters of faith, but only with proporty;
to eeo that tho church moneys, which wero
enormous, wero not applied to tho propa-
?at!on lot polygamy. Not ono-nuartor of
be Mormons, as Mr. Edmunds understood,
believed In polygamy.
Mr. Teller Inquired It thoMormon Church
tnonoTs wore now applied Illegally that Is,
In violation of the emitter ol 'that church!
Sir, Edmunds replied that ho 'believed
they were.
Mr. Teller asked how;
Mr. Edmunds answered : "Thoy ore used
for tho purposo of Inducing and securing
Immigration that may contribute to the
lusts of those vagabonds."
As the bill was about to bo brought to a
Vote, Mr, Morgan said Its friends seemed
determined to press It without giving Its
opponents a chance to study It. Ho again
Impaired as to the salaries which tho com
missioners wero to havo. Ho did not want to
send fourtcccn men out to Utah to "loot"
tho Mormou Church. Ho had announced
his determination to wlpo this church out
and leayo nothing of It nut u name and an
unholy memory, bnt had bcon met by a
1 proposition In -tills bill to perpetuate the
church.
While Ilia bill was on the final passago
Sir. Van Wyclceiideavorod to fix tho duties
' of tho proposed fourteen trustees upon tho
members of, tbo present Utah commission,
but ho was ruled out of order. Ha askod
Sir. Edmunds whether ho had any objection
to such an amendment, to which tho senator
answered that ho had.
The bill having been brought to a vote
was passed yeas 88, nays 7 as follows :
Ynss. Messrs. Allison. Heck. Ilerry, Chaco,
Coekrcll, Coke. Colquitt, Conger, Cullam,

voted against tho bill only bocauso of the
section disfranchising wpmou; hat oven
with that section n, "lio wpuld havo voted
for the bill had his vote becu necessary to

The Ecuuto then, at B-.GO p. in., on motion
of Sir. Edmunds, adjourned till Monday

Tito Anti-Mormon 11111.
The Utah bill as passed by tho Senato Is
substantially tho samo as when reported
from the committee on Dec. SI and pub
lished in tho National RcruiiuoAN of
Dec. S3. The only clmngo of consequence
is tho addition of a section doclarlng mar
riages Incestuous that aro contracted bo.

fourth degree of consanguinity.
The main features of the bill aro as fol
lows : It makes tho lawfnl husband or
wlfo of thopcrson accused of bigamy acorn-
?ctcnt witness, who may be compelled to
estify without tho consent of tho wife or
husband, as the case may bo. An attach
ment may bo Issuod for a witness without
previous subpoena when there Is reasonable
Eround to bcllovo that a subpama would
not J") offectlvo. Every marrlago shall bo
certified to In writing by the parties con
cerned, Including tho priest. Women nro
piohlblted from voting In the territory. All
laws recognizing Illegitimate children aro

that prosecutions for adultory can bo corrf
menccd only on tho complaint of the

1'rcsldent Is to appoint (by and with tho

United States laws, tbo escheated property

Tbo ofllco of district school superintendent
Is declared vacant, and tho conrt Is directed

THE WOMEN AND TUB WAH.
A Northern Nurso Tolls Wlioro tho
Heroines Woro nml Wero Not.
I may bo classed by tho heroines men
tlontd In tho llnrunucAN of tho
18th of Dicembcr, 1835, among tho
bloody shirt writers. Wo army
nurses who began our work on
tbo day Sumter was fired upon, and con
tinued It until our soldiers wero sent homo,
saw enough of thatgarmont, not to bo in
uio least aiarmcu a. monamo or ono in
these latter days.
We, tho loyal army nurses, did not leavo
our quiet homes in tho north because wo
hated the south or tho people there, but be
cause wo loved the grand old Hag and our
country moro than wo did our homes.
I do not call any woman that rode with
Stuart or Forrest a bravo heroine, but tho
woman who ministered to tho sick and
wounded aro oucs nlono entitled to thoso
names. A fow days beforo tho second bat
tlo of Hull Itun, In August, 1803, thcro was
a skirmish near Kettlo Itun, not far from
llrlstow station: wo left our camp, near
Warrcnton, tho day of tlio battlo, about
dark the soldiers left In tho morning. I,
with tho man left with mo In chargo of our
hospital stores, aud somo others not ablo to
march with tbo soldiers, traveled all night
on tho railroad, that dark night so ottou
spoken of as I tho night Fltz-John 1'ortcr
could not march and I never blamod him,
Just beforo morning wo reached Kettlo
Itun bridge. That was destroyed, and wo
waited for daylight to sco our way across.
Near by wo found a few woundod mon,
nnu wero toiu our surgeons wero a. uns
tow station, at a house, whero tho wounded
were carried. On going forward wo .soon
heard calls for help nnd fearful groans, and
going In tho direction ot tho sounds wo
found tho field wbcro tho dead and wounded
rebels wero left. Tbo men wero moving
them oft as fast as they could, but somo
wero badly wounded, with tho dead lying
across them, and thero they had lain fUtcen
hours or moro. Where wero tho bravo
heroines f I staid thcro, and with tho assist
ance of some fccblo soldiers who followed
mo to tho field, moved them, nnd got them
tbo drink of water they had suffered so
much for. After they wero all moved wo
went on to llrlstow station, whero wo found
our surgeons and a houso full ot wounded
rebel soldiers. Thcv exclaimed. "Wo nro so
glad you havo come, for no t oven a cup of tea
orcoff co could wegct, though wo havoplcnty
of It that wo found In the storo room."
The hcroino ot that house, with tho assist
ance of her servants, was packing her
trunks to go away from her own people,
without even allowing her servants to gtvo
them a cup of tea. But wo soon did that,
and I bad n good half dozen of her sheets
In strips for bandages.
A southern surgeon said to mo : "If our
women would tako the Interest in the sick
and wounded that yours do, thcro would not
bo so much suHcrlug," and when our sur-
Scons were ordered forward ho beggod
lera to leavo mo to assist them. I staid
and worked all that day and night for them,
although thcro was not a wounded Union
soldier there.
Tho next morning tho doctor told mo
their folks wero coming In, and I need not
fear I should bo sent through tho lines nt
any tlmo I wished to go. llutl did sot wait
for them to come, nud soon found another
field for labor, ot tbo old Wcaro House,whcro
the men of King's division wero taken.
From thcro I went on to tho Hull Run
battle, was a prisoner at Controvlllo, whero
I staid with tho wounded. Not ono woman
thcro gave me a cup of cold water, ovon.
Probably many of Stuart's or Forrest's
brave women wero there, for tho colored
pcoplo begged mo to get away, saying, "tho
women wanted somo one to snoot that
Yankeo nurse," but the soldiers treated
mo with kindness.
Thewrlterof that artldo says: "Tho malo
nurses wero the most unfeeling animals In
tho world." That might havo been truo on
his side, but not with us. One thing I saw
after tho battle of Gettysburg mokes mo
tblnk It was true. Tho wounded were moved
back from tbo field a short distance, and at
one place near tbo creek was a small houso
and a Pennsylvania barn both woro full of
wounded. Our corps hospital was near
there. Wednesday, alter tho battle, I wont
over and found near tho born In a cow ynrd,
without shelter pr shade, about twenty
badly-wounded rebel soldiers. They told mo
their wounds had not been, dressed, and they
were suffering for water. I filled ilielr can
teens ana found their men that had volun
teered to stay and'tako care ot them stand
ing around, smoking and talking war. I
'asked them wjiy they did not look after
their men, .Thoy replied: "Wo aro prison
ers, nd not obliged to do the work." Al
though I had more than I could do at our
hospital, I went cTcry day and worked an
hour for those mon until thoy wero pnt lu
test and tho Sisters of Charity came to
take care of 'tbem.
I agree with St r. Sfurray that .tbo Sisters'
of Charity did a good work, but no hotter
than tho Protestant nurses. In all my ex
perience I never heard ot a nurse aiklnga
sick or wounded soldier what his religion
was, whore be camo from, or what was tho
color of his skin, When brouzht in from
the bottle fields, covered with blood. It was
hard to tell whether they wero black or
white until washed. Many tlmos havo wo
sent for a priest when a Catholic soldier
asked for blm, and not always In daylight,
but at all hours of tbo night.
In my four years and eight months on
tbo field, among thoi sick and wouudod, I
novcr met ono southern woman that I
could call a lierolotv or even brave. Hatred
aud bravery araas different as night and a
sunny day. All they did was because thoy
thoroughly hated tho Yankees. Thoy
thought wo wero not their equals i but wo
wero mora than their equals lu everything
but cruelty and hatred, but that was uot so
much their fault. I never rccolvcd a kind
ness but from ono southern white family
during tho war, and that was at Alexan
dria, va. AN Es-Amrv Nunsc.

The chaplain of the Senato had con.
eluded an eloquent and Instructive prayer
nnd the clerk was reading tho Journal In a
deep, rich, unctuous tone, when tho sonlor
senator from Alaska roso majestically In
his placo and moved, at solemn nnd digni
fied pace, across tho chamber to tho seat
occupied by his honored friend, tbo Junior
senator from Now Mexico, who, unconscious
of all sublunary things, was taking a soul

ho gently Jogged tho elbow of tho wrapt
enthusiast. Iho Junior senator from Now
Mexico moved not nor gavoovldenco of con

with a dazed, faraway look in his deep
