These nominations, as a whole, are received
by the gpnservative masses with favor, but the

said that Thompson was appointed at Morton's
request. The appointments were referred to
the Committees which the Vice President was
expeoted to appoint Friday or Saturday.
Coueinars.-The last semsion of the Forty
Fourth Congrees expired Sunday at 12 o'clock.
All the appropriation bills passed excepting
the army bill, which failed because the House
has inserted a clause prohibiting the pese of the
army in Louisiana and Bouth Carolina, to
which the Senate objected. This failure, to
gether with other considerations reespeting
-public business, will necessitate an extra ses

intends to call for the 1set of June.

On the credentials of Kellogg, elected by the
St. Louis Hotel crowd, there was a spirited
debate, the Democrats and the Conservatives
desiring them referred to the Committee on
Elections, and the extreme Radicals, lead by
of Blaine and Morton, fighting to have Kellogg
n- seated at once. Conkling (Rep.) and gBayard
is (Dem.) lead the opposition to the Blaine forces,
al and on the final division, triumphed by a vote
ks of 35 to 29.
a In his speech on the 6tb, Blaine, speaking on
the reported arrangement for the recognition
of Hampton and Nioholls by the new admiuis
tration, asked who were the men who were
- doing the whisperings and plottings in the
r- corridors. Speaking of the arrangement he
p said : "Without being authorised to speak
o for the Administration that now exists, I deny
it on the simply broad ground that it is an im
ipossibility th at the Administration of Presi
dent Hayes could do it. I deny it on the
broad ground that President Hayes possesses
Sobaracter common sense, self-respeot, patriot
re im, all of which he has in a high measure and
in an equal degree.
Is Answering on the 7th, Mr. Bayard recapitu
te lated the events of the past eight years, and
re quoted Grant's recent order in the Louisiana
n case as showing that even he had fBnally
as learned that the policy of force had been, a
Ia failure. He also quoted from Hayes' inaugural
y, in regard to Southern afairs, and commended
a. his views as wise. Coneluding, he said that
in the peace of Louisiana was the peace of all,
al and her destruction was the destruction of all.
It He argued that the recognition of the Packard
ie Government4end the forcible overthrow of.the
e. Nicholls Government would not only shook the
m very souls of the people of Louisiana, bat
would cause a thrill hl every bosom in this
Mr. Blaine replied and read a dispatch from
Chamberlain of South Carolina stating that he
ly had received a letter from Stanley Matthews
endorsed by Evate, asking him to yield his
0 rights for the good of the country. "These
are the men," said Blaine, who have been do
h ing the whisperings in the corridors" 'Is
there a Senator on this floor," he continued,
S'who desires to stand sponsor for that dis
patob, or for the policy it coverst Is there
at any Senator here who proposes to abandon the
o remnant that is left of the Republoan party,
between the Potomac and the Rio Graude,
1 that it shall go down for the public good, as
Mr. Stanley Matthews pots it? Ido not pro
pose, either at the beck of- Mr. Stanley Mat
thews or Mr. Evarts, to say that the public
good requires that the brave men who have
borne the fag and brunt of the battle in the
a- Southern States against persecutions unparal
leled in this country shall retire for the pub
If lio good. I do not propose it; I am here to do
battle with any one, in my humble way, who
r- esposes that podioy. I lay that gage down
for any Senator who standasponser to the sag
f, gestions of Mr. Stanley Matthews and Mr.
Evarts on the question.
I Notwithstanding his violent speech Blaine
was defeated as above stated.
T, There is no doubt that a great split has oc
curred in the Radioal party in the Senate, the
,f Extremists being led by Morton and Blaine
against the conciliatory policy of Hayes. Mr.
f Counkling has assumed the leadership of the
more conservative Republicans who favor the
d new Administration's Southern policy, as fore
e shadowed by Hayes' inaugural, the character
- of his cabinet ministers and the sayirge of his
5 friends. It is understood the-Democrats will,
a on this basis, act with the administration,
o thereby giving it an absolute majority of seven
a or eight in the Senate.
On the 7h Gen. Gibson had an interview
Swith President Hayes. The President assured
him that he intended to adhere to his Southern
g policy at all hazards; that the country most
be peolfied and self-government prevail. Gen.
e Gibson replied that for every step he took to
o ward the Southern people they would take a
- step toward him, and he believed that in soch
a polioy he would rally to his support the peo
ple of Louisiana, without regard to old party
Slmbs. President Hayes expressed himself very
much gratified at the assurance, and said that
he relied upon the frankness and courage of
the Bouthern people. He iptimated that he
expected to lose by his Southern policy a cer
1 tain Republican support at the North and
I hoped to make it up at the Sbnth.

TBE LTING IN STATE AND AN IMMENSE IUNERAL
PROCrSSION IN DUBLIN.
Dublia, March 4.-The event of the day was
the funeral of the Irish patriot, John O'M0
hony-a memorable event in this city of hie
torio events. Sinoe the afternoon of the 26th
nlt., when the remains reached this city. the
body has lain in state. Not less than 200,000
men and women have daily devoted hours to
honoring O'Mahony's memory, surging in
great multitudes in and about the building,
keeping perfeet order, and all desiring to see
the features of the illustrious dead. The only
disturbance has been that evolved from
friendly rivalries among the fellowers of
O'Mahony and the friends of theFenian cause
as to who should have the honor of watching
by the coffin.
When the body reached the Cork railway
station, an immense concourse, many thou.
sands of people in faot, greeted the committee
with respectful and orderly demonstrations of
gratitude. The route lay along the quays a
distanoeof two and a half miles. Tbhe night
was dark and the clouds bung heavily int she
sky. Thousands of blazing torches illumined
the scene, which the funeral music of several
bands made weird and solemn. The entire
length of the route was blackened by masses
of people, wbo uncovered as the procession
passed. At first the excitement was suppress
ed and nothing was heard above the sounds of
the dirge, but as the head of the easort reached
the theatre, as though a flash of revelation had
suddenly awakened the multitude to a realise
sion of the mournful facts before them, a rush
was made, and cofin, esoori, committee, band,
and crowd became a confused and surging
multitude, intermixed andk acting ocrimpulse.
There were no police to interfere, and it is
remarkable tbat no serious personal harm be
fell the people. The disorder was very grebt,
and grew almost entirely, after the first ruhb,
from a desire on the part of the people to enter
the building with the coffin.
Since then the body has laid in state in the
Mechanics' Institute, in Lower Abbey street,
In the Institute is a theatre, which the Fenians
hired and transformed with orape and candles
into a mourning chapel, where the remains of
the Fenian leader have been viewed by 15,000
or 20,000 people every day since their arrival.
Cardinal Collen's opposition to the proposed
reception of O'Mahony's body created deep
feeling in the country, and the vast concourse
of to-day is largely due to the opposition of the
Cardinal. In consequetoe of the rapid decom
position of the body, it was deemed best to
close the coffin lid finally last evening, al
hongh at least 100,000 persons were still wait
tng for their turn to look apon the features.
It may be doubted if there was eer a grander
funeral in Dublin. The preparations made
were on the grandest scale. There was no
attempt to forces a demonstration. None was
reeded. The people were the demonstration.
Too three kingdoms furnished the display,
thousands coming over from England and
Scotland, while it seemed as though all Ireland
was in mourning, and every street clad in the
habillments of grief. The coffin rested on a
raised p'atform in the great hall, the walls of
which were hung with black cloth, the grim
nees of wbich was made more clear by the
flieqering glare from the enormous candles I
near tih poffin and about the room. Great
clouds of incense burdened the air, and deso
lation characterized the place. "Allen, O'Brien,
Barrett, Larkin" faced the spectatoron enter- I
ing the bhall. "Mitchell, MoManus, Meagher"
were in the rear. A large flag of Erin, draped
in crape, bung over the right, and "Emmett,
Fitzgerald, Orr " completed the quadrangle of 1
mourning. On the coffin were two croesse, one g
made of exquisite flowers, and the various em
blems sent from the States, and a great white
harp perfected the decorations. d
The procesaion was immense. The streets v
were filled at an early hour, and when the head
of the line desired to move, it was with great
difficulty it could advanoeastep. Everything m
that could be done in a quiet and decorous
way to manifest grief and regret for the death n
of a beloved chief was done.
It is estimated that 150,000 men formed the
escort from Lower Abbey street to Glasnevin g
Cemetery. How many witnessed the totnouj v
it would be impossible to say.
The coffin was placed upon a large funeral
car, which was immediately followed by twenty o
persons who had been imprisoned for political
Mr. Charles J. Klekham, formerly a political
prisoner, delivered the address, in the course
of wbich he declared that Fenianlam still ex- b
isted. The remains were depoeited in the grave a
of Terrance Bellew MacManus. g
All the public houses in the city were closed $
during the day. a
The N.T. Sun, last Saturday, appeared in 0
mourning and with this abort and strong arti
ole at the head of its editorial columns:

The opening of the new railroad, 263 miles
in length, from Galveston to Ban Antonio hbe
afforded an opportunity to the papers of the
latter city to expatiate on its beauties and tbhe
thrilling interest of its history. It' appear,
that San Antoolo is the second oldest city iJ
the Union (San Augustine, Fla., being the
oldest), having been founded in 1692. In 173(
the foundations of Parisima Conception were
laid; also, about the same time, La Espada,
Ban Juan and San Jose were built. These
missions are of stone, and In a good state ol
preservation. They are at intervals of three
I or four miles along the San Antonio river. In
1762, when Texas and Loluisiana passed from
the possession of France to Spain, the popula
tion of 8an tonio was 2000. After the transfe
Texas was oonnected with Mexico, and soon
began to exhibit the restlessness whioh final
caused the ereotion of the Republio of Texas.
Previous to the revolution Americans were
forbidden to enter the territory by the Mexioan
authorities. Such restriotive orders only in.
s spired the hardy adventurers with more deter
mination. Nolan and a party of eighteen en.
tered the territory, and were all killed; one
way or another, except one.
In 1813 the republicans commenced thei,
struggle, and many fights took place in the
neighborhood of Ban Antonio. The war thus
commenoed against Spain, spread through
Mexico, end resulted eventually in the estab
litshment i the Republio.
But the Texans soon found that they bad
exobhanged a Spanish tyrant for a Mexioan Re
publican tyranny. In 1624 Austin's army cap
tured San Antonio after a hard fight, and in
1836 Santa Anna with several thousand Mei.
cans attaoked the place. Its defenders num
bered 144 men, under command of Col. Travis,
all being within the walls of the Alamo. On
Sunday morning, March 6th, the Mexicans be
gan the assault. To describe this sonflict
would be to give a history of each individual
composing the Texan force. All were heroes
and all sold their lives at a fearful cost to the
enemy. The dead body of Crockett was found
apart from his comrades, but surrounded by
dead enemies. Bowie, though on the verge of
death from siokness, only gave up the remnant
of his life in exchange for the lives of two or
three Mexicans. Not one soldier lived to tell
"Thermopyia had its etesenger of defeat, the Alamo
The extinction of this brave band was fol
lowed by other disasters. Col. Fannin and his
command (400 men) and Captain Ward (with
10 men) were captured and brutally murdered
in cold blood. These suncesses were followed
by ective efforts on the part of the Mexicans
to entirely annihilate the Americans. Hous
ton, who commanded the Amerloans, was
driven over the State to Lynohbnrg, Just
-aross the bay from Galveston. There the
American army was hemmed in completely.
Santa Anna came on, confident of his ability
to overcome by superior numbers. He bad
driven an army of lions to bay. The confliot
was terrible, and resulted in the defeat of the
Mesxians and the subsequent capture of the
army with Sante Anna himself.
The destru6tinn of the Mexican army was a
mortal blow to Mexican domination in Texas.
Santa Anna made a treaty with the provisional
government of Texas, by wblhr all prisoners
were to be released and the Mexican forces
were to evacuate the country. The recognition
of the independence of Texas followed.
Concluding its sketch, the San Antopio
ferald says :
During the last twelve months there has
been a rapid Increase in our population, which
now amounts to about 20,000, while the aggre
gate wealth will probably not fail short of
$10,000,000. A oity on the American continent
which has stood for nearly two centuries, and
survived the shook of a dozen ware and politi
cal revolutions, may be safely regarded as a
