Cur Washington letter. From Onr Bogular ( o ict l om'eut. Washington, Dec. 7.18 c 5. The Forty-Ninth Congress met to day at noon. In the House there were over three hundred Members. The House and Senate were called to order at the same moment. The organization of each had been set tied by the caucuses held on Satur day, and to day the formality of re electing the old officers of the Ilou-e was quickly accomplished by tin* Democritic majority. The Republi cans honored Mr. Reed, of Maine, with a complimentary yote for Speak er. In the Senate, Senator John Shrr man, of Ohio, was elected presiding officer, to succeed the late Vice Pres ident. In accepting the nomination. Senator Sherman said his duties hith erto had not given him the experience for a good officer. In trying to fairly and impartially observe and enforce the rules of the Senate, he felt tha tie would have to rely greatly’ upon the forbearance ai.d courtesy of the Senators. The comment now is that Senator Logan did a wise thing in declining the nomination for President piotem of the Senate, unanimously tendered him on Frdiay last, by the caucus o 1 Republican Senators He declined on the ground that he could serve his constituents better by remaining on the floor, and that the position was not to his taste. The session of the Senate to-day was brief. It merely organized and then adjourned through respect to the memory of Mr. Hendricks, whose chair was heavily draped in black. President Cleveland’s, message will be sent to both branches of Con gress during to-morrow's session. It will be read in both ends of the Cap itol at the same time. The message has been carefully guarded, and none of it has been published before the time intended, though much of' its policy has been indicated in advance. As you have read it, probably’, before this reaches you, it is useless for me to forecast its contents. I will mention however, that if Congress should not, after a reason able time, approve of the President’s recommendation to suspend the sil ver coinage, it is probable the Treas ury will suspend it on its own au thority, holding that the Bland act, although it provides a permanent fund to purchase bullion, yet prov ides no fund for the expense of coin age. The annual report of Secretary Whitney of the Navy, will probably attract more attention than that of any other Cabinet officer. In his record of the year he treats thorough ly and exhaustively the question of re organizing his Department and placing it upon a business basis which will guard it from the notor ious scandals of the past The report of Indian Commissioner i Atkms shows that there will be but I little change in the policy oftheGov ernmet towards the Indian under a Democratic Administration. The red man is to be reclaimed as fast as possible by the ordinary processes of civilization, and is to be made to work like other people. II Commissioner Col man, Oje chief of the the farmers, gives a yeai’s , ! cultural results, lie tells the needs j and work of his Department, what the various Bureaus have done and what they hope to do. Wh en Congress gets fairlv to work the indications are that it will j ass the Hoar succession hill, which p o vides for giving the Presidential sue cession to Cabinet officers in the line of their rank. There seems to b• no disposition to treat the matter Ir.nn h party stand j o nt. Sena ors and Members of both parties think this winter's session will be one of the most interesting since the war. It is suse to be a long one and will probably not end before next August. CONOWINGO ITEMS.
