OUR NATIONAL CAPITAL. Nothing Done— Unparlimentary Patents Resigns. From our Regular Correspondent. The best half of this week has been con turned, or worse, wasted in a fruitless wrangle between the Free Traders and protectionists. There has been much fllli buslering, and a development of bad feel ing between the two parties, and even be tween Individual members of ibe same par ty. The contending factions were led res pectively by Messrs. Ulackbum and Gar field. The deadlock was broken 011 Thurs day by a sort of compromise, which will enable both the beligeianls lo claim a vict ory, butwlncb to the wubiaaed looker on, seems simply a drawn battle. The pro tectiunists and Free Traders, as wbs shown by a test vote, do not divide on party lines. Discussion has been silenced for this ses sion, but it will doubtless be a burning question in the future. . The House, as at present constituted, is a protection House. The name may be suid of the .Senate. The speaker of the House is a high tariff tnuti. But how will it be in two years, when a new caucus has given the West an over whelming prepoliderence in the National Legislation ? During the controversy in the House over Mr. Tounshends Tariff bill, Speaker Kau dall has been the receipunt of many Un complimentary critisiiu by his free trade Democratic colleagues. Notubly among those who denounced him was Mr. Black burn, of Kentucky. During Wednesday's night session, while Mr. Blackburn was de nouncing the Speaker, and declaring hima traitor to the Democratic party, which would be benefited by Randall's removal, bag aud baggage to the Republican party, he was confronted by Mr. Coffroth, of Pen sylvania who defended his oolleague and declared that the language of Mr. Black. burn would justify hi 111 (Ooffroth) in strik ing him. Blackburn much, enraged, said: "Well, you have heard what I have' said, and if you mean to say it is not true, you are a liar." Bystanders prevented a colis ion and as Mr. Coffroth moved away he said to Blackburn: "There is one charge you cannot im) art to him. He never betrayed his country." 1 The long debate la congress over the election laws, has ended more satisfactorily than seemed possible a year ago. The de cision of the Supreme court has had much to do with settling the question. The Democrats in the House have now passed an amendment to the law, giving the ap pointment of these deputies to the United Slates circuit judges, and providing that, instead of being ail ot one political rarty, ther shall be selected In equal numoers from both parties, and shall be persons of i;ood moral character, and well known res ident s of the voting precinct in which their duties are to be performed. There is some talk of this -being opposed by the Republicans in the Senate, as it was op posed by some of the Republicans in the House, on the ground that it is a rider to the appropriation bill, but the President, it is announced, vary positively, will ap prove it if passed. The present Commisioner of patents, like all his predecessors, has handed in his res ignation, after a very brief term of office, lie expect like, all the oomiuisiunera who have gone before him, to go into the Eractlce of patent law. His resignation is ailed with delight by the employes ot the patent office, as well as by inventors and their attorneys. Many new and confusing changes have been introduced in the rules and practice during his incumbency and it is predicted that bis successor will have a great deal to undo. Washington D. C. Mar. 27. Discussion of the Bill. Tntt Local Option Bill was called up in the House of Assembly on Wednesday last, aad a rather lively discussion entered into. As a means of enlightening the peo ple at to the posture of the subject before the popular branch, we give in full, the drift of the discussion at the opening, using the dispatches of the Leader. The bill pro vides that the question of local option be submitted to townships, oounties, Villages, cities or wards on the application of thirty citizens, aud punishes the violatipn of the law as a roisdemeaner, finable in not less than twenty, nor more than fifty dollars, or by imprisonment not to exceed sixty days, or both. It makes the furnishing of prescriptions tor liquor by physicians to persons not sick a rnisderaeauer finable in not to exceed one hundred dollars for each offense; and provides that when local op tion has been adopted by a majority vote in any place it shall remain unchanged for three years. 1 The lobby was filled with spectators.and seats for visitors were occupied by ladies. The fact of its geuerrl interest, and that of its oue hundred aud fifty thousand peti tioners for its passage, made it especially interesting. All the members (or a time dropped their papers aud attended to the business of the hour. As soon as the bill came np, Mr. Cole, Republican, moved that it be referred to the Committee on Judiciary. Mr. Thorp raised the poiut of order that this motion oould not hold, as the bill bad not been read. The bill was then read. Mr. Cole renewed his motion. Mr. Bloom moved to amend Cole's mo tion so that the committee be required to report next Monday. The Speaker declar ed this motion our of order. Mr. Thorn wanted the House to under stand that Mr. Cole's motion was intended to kill the bill, and those who voted for it voled against the bill. .Mr. (Jole said he did not oppose local op lion, but there was doubt as to its con slilutlonalily, and he thought that Thorp's actions were doing more than those of any ulher lo kill the bill. He objected to local option if it was not constitutional, and if so, he would oppose it. -Mr. King here got the floor, and In mild tone advocated the passage of bis measure, snyins that there was uo doubt but that the bill should pass at once, and that with out thin reference. .Mr. .Marsh, Democrat, opposed the refer ence, saying that it was merely a scheme to put (ill' the passage of the bill and 10 keep up the political reputation of the Re publican party. He said that the Demo crat hud shown how they stood on this question. They were against It. He did not want to see them skulk behind the bu.h and disregard the petitions of 1110,000 citizens of the Slate. lie thought it was only due to these people that the Legisla ture should say what they would do. A for him, he would vote aguinst it. But it wus only due to these petitioners that the bill should be passed upon. M r. Bloom said that he understood that the House was going to adjourn next Sat urday, or at furthrest a week from thence. Ho saw in this a move to refuse to pass upon the bill, and to this heaa a member ol the Committee on Temperance decided ly objected. He then demanded that the Republican party as the Simon pure tem perance party should pass upon the bill, Here he went on to say that the Republi can party had made this an issue in the past campaign. Mr. Ebright held: Is the gentleman to little of a politician as to say that the tem perance question was the issue of the past campaign ? Mr. Bloom, walked down the aisle to ward him and raising his bands, MI say they did make it an issue in the campaign, umf brought it on the stump." Mr. Ebright. Does not the gentleman know that it was the dirtiness of the O'Connor Legislature that defeated your party last fall Mr. UliHim replied to this with warmth, exulting the past Assembly and denounc ing the present, saying that he wanted the Republicans to put themselves oa record una to lie as brave as their predecessors. Mr. Covert wanted to know if the gen tleman wanted this bill to pass or merely wanted the Republicans put upon record. This was followed by a laugh, and Mr. Bloom went on to speak npon the constitu tionality of the law. Dr. Greene wanted to know how the Democrats stood on this question. Mr. Bloom said that the Democrats were not in favor of taking from the Ger man his Beer, or the old woman her cof fee. But be objected to the Republicans sending this bill to the Judiciary Commit tee, where it would sleep the sleep of death and where it would sot rise up to trouble the party in the coming Presiden tial campaign. Dr. Greene wanted to know whether a distinguished member of the Democratic party had not said on this floor that the Democratic party was the whisky party? Mr Bloom. I do not know of any such gentlemen, but we are called the whisky party. The Republicans went before the people lust year as a temperance party and were elected as such. He wanted them now to show themselves as tuch. Amid hisses, Mr. Thorp moved the pre vious question, which was put and result ed yeas, ao; nays, 01. Mil rrl. ....a..l..n utill l,uf tl. "I Mr. Kiioiis of Knox said he was decidedly In fovor of the bill. Mr. Cole, Republican, took the floor and made a carefully prepared speech on the constitutionality of the bill, saying that it should be carefully dealt with or It n ight cause endless and .unnecessary litiga tion. After some further speeches the question of referaoce ciune to vote and was lost yea , IB, nays HO. Mr. Scott moved to amend, "providing that the question of lo cul option shall not be submitted within two months of any political election." This was aggrccd to yeas, 64, nays, 41. Mr. Williums moved to strike out VI nus and Mult Liquors from the bill. Lost yeas, 17, nays 70. Mr. Thorp then moved to amend to pro vide that whenever a majority of the resi dent citizens, male and female over twenty one years of age, in any township, city or any ward, or either, shall have filed their petition in writing with the Probate Judge of the county, asking for the sale of such intoxicating liquors, then the provisions of this act shall not apply, but Uie lawt regulating or retraining the sale of intoxi cating liquor now in force shall have full force and ctlcct in places so petitioning for its sale. Mr. Dempcy moved to amend this amendment providing for taking away restriction as to age and allowing its pro visions to prevail on petitions ol children well as others. Lost. Mr. Thorps motion was then lost Yeas 24, nnys (15.

This saaji gtntleoiaa aud a clot calculation in 1878, and w are told "ertry candid obtnr know! that Mr. Blain' chances are much bUr aow than in 1870," W quote: "Then on the first ballot be received bnt one vote of the DM east by-th treat en tral block of oKat eompoetd ef Vermont, Ntw York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana and Kenleeky. Mow, be will teeiv at least 66 from them on th first ballot (a clear fain. and Ohio and Vtrraoot (54 voles) will be solid for him as second choice."

On the second ballot Ohio and Vermont will glv their 64 vote to him; but lone, before they - are reached in the eall the break lo other States will have given him more than the requisite number. The following is the claim mad by Mr. Blaine's friends as to delegates elected: "So far 183 delegates have been elected to th National Convention, as follows: New York, 70;" Pennsylvania, 58; Ver mont, 10; Indiana, 80 North Carolina, 8 (with 13 more to ehnt,) and Maine lit, (with 1 more to elect.) Of these, James Q. Blaine is the actual choice for Presi dent of about two-third, and- after com plimentary vote are passed he will re ceive fully 124 of the IBS vote. On th first ballot, these delegate will probably vot as follows:", Blain. Grant. Bherxoaa Edm 'da New York, so 50 ' .. . .. Peon,, t U .. ' Vermont, .. - - 10 Indiana. M .. I N.

"When w consider that the strong holds of Grant have already spoken, while ths Northwest, which ie almost solidly for Blaine, hat hardly began the preliminary canvass, this is a pretty good showing. " The confidence displayed by Blaine's boys it something charming. ' ELECTORAL CONVENTION. Nineteenth Congressional District.
