When the Rcnnte met the gnllerirH were cni'vdcd with 8)cctiitors in nniicipntion of n treat in the promised khtIi of Mr. Infills in oppomtion to the hill to en cournnc the cmiurntion of the colnrcd K.'ople trimi the United Sinus. Mr. Vest presented the credentials ol" Win. A. Clark and Martin Martinis ns scimtors-clret from the Stntcof Mimtnnn. Thev were rend nnd referred on Mr. Vests' motion to the committee on privi leges and elections. On his motion, nlso, four gentlemen 1 clniininK t' 1 M-nntors-clect were ml mittcd, I iK'iiilinK conlciitl to the privi leges of the floor. Un motion of Mr. Dolph, the senate lull for nn immediate appropriation ol $"iOO,000 for the continuance of im provements ut the mouth of Columbia river, was taken up and passed. Mr. Gorman said that while he would not antnuonise the bill, he would oppose unv further specilic appropriations until all'tnc public works were considered in the river nnd harbor bill. A mmiU'r of bills on the cnlendnr, were passed; mmm); them, one estiiblisliinn a li".ht station at Ilillsboro Inlet, Florida. At o'clock Mr. Infills rose to speak tiiiou Mr. llutlcr'a neKro emi;riitioii lull. At this time there wns scarcely a va cant seat in the galleries, except as to the diplomatic gallery in which there were only half n dozen seats occupied. There hiid nlso been numerous admis sions to the lloor of the senate.und there wascousciiiently a great buzz and hum of conversation nil over the chamber. When Mr. Inealls rose and asked lor the reading of the bill in lull, the noise and contusion instantly ceased ami lcr lect stillness succeeded. He opened his SKtvh in n clear, ringing voice, saying: Mr. President: The nice to which we belong is the most arrogant nnd rapa cious, the most exclusive nnd indomita ble in history. It is contiucring mi un conureublc"racc, through which alone man bus taken iosessiou of the physical nnd moral world. To our rncchiiinnnity is indebted for religion, for literature, fur civilization. It hasn genius fnrcoiiiuest. for politics, for jurisprudence, anil lor ndministrntion. The home nnd family are its contributions to society, ludi- nluulism, Irntcrnity, lilwrly ami citial- ity have laen its contributions to the State. AH other races have leen lis eiiciiprs and its victims. This is not the time nor is it the occasion to consider profoundly the interesting cpicstion ol the unit v of the raws. It is sulhcient to snv that, either by instinct or design. the Cnucasian race at every step ol its progress from barbarism to enlighten ment has rcliiscd to mingle its blood, or to assimilate, with two other great human families (the Mongolian ami the African I and has K-rsistenlly rejected niliilteration. Mr. Inunlls went oil to siH'ak of the triumphs accotnplUhtd by the exiles of J'lymoulli and Jamestown who hud ventured on this continent nu hitherto untried experiment a paruilox of government in which those who rule are those to be governed, ('iiilrrthcshield of the American government, he said, every faith had found its shelter, even creed n sanctuary and every wrong re dress. It had resisted the rancor ol party spirit, the violences of taction, the perils of foreign immigration, the collisions of civil war uud the jealous menunce of foreign nnd hostile animus. He nuotcd Irom Mr. John llrighl s siR-ecn (during the civil war,) in which Mr. bright said: . . 1 tee another ami n brighter vinon Isrfure my gaze. It may lie it vision, but I cherish it. I see one vast cnuleilcriition atrrtehini! from the frozen North to the glowing South, mid from the wild bil lows ol the Atlantic in ineeaiiuer wmeia of the Pncilic mam, and I si one Koplc. one laiiguuge, one law and one laith; uud all over that wide continent the home of freedom mid the relugc lor the - pressed ol every race and every clone . Mr. Itignlls proceeded: On the thresh hold olour second tvntury we are con fronted with the most lorinidable nnd portentous problem ever submitted to a free people lor a solution; complex, un precedented, involving the social, moral, political considerations, party suprem acy, und in the estimation of inaiiy. though not in my own, theexistenceof our svslein ol government, us solution win demand all resources and the sliitesman- liin of the present uud of the Hit tire lo pre vent a crisis that may Iwccme a catastro phe. It should la? npiironehcd withcaudor, Willi solemnity, wiin pairnmi- nn...m., with learless scrutiny, without subter fuge and without reserve. Let me state i lite hniLMliiirc I I one of Ihe most hril- iinul, most impassioned and powerful of ull orators of the South, now iiumriu nalelv no more.

Ill galls therriiHin avnl to the clerk's desk nnil had reiidmiextructfroin.Mr.tirndy's oration before the Huston Chamber of Coimnerce nnd then went on to say: Let nie stnte the arithmetic ol this jiroh Icin, In I KU0 there were in the t uiled Stules 4,4-4.0,0110 negroes, slaves and m. In 1870 there were 4.4HO.I KiO : in 1KH0 ilicrc were 6,GNO,oilll, uu increase which, I say in pnssiug, can only lie ac counted lor on the principle ol n piemedi' tilted and intentional fraud on the ecu sus. At the close of this century prulia I1 v there will not I less than liliecn mil lions of (lie liluek mid colored nice on l bin continent. the problem is still fiirlhtTcnmpliciitcd hv the fact that thev lire gregarious. they instinctively separate themselves into their own communities, with their own hubits, their own customs, their own mctliodsof lile. They worsbipscpar nlely. They lire taught separately. The line of cleavage between Ihe whiles and blacks is liecoiuiug cousiuuuy more ins tinct und iwrccptihle. There is neither amalgamation iiornhsorptioit nor assimi lation. Politicully, they are nllilialed with the victors in the line civil war. Socially nnd by locality and residence thev are associated with the vauotiiahed. Will the exK-ritnent Unit has failed else where succeed here? Can the black race exist as citizens of the I'nited Suites tin terms of political eiiialily with the Cau casian nice ? And if not, why not ? Fred llouglns, the most illustrious living rep resentative of Ihe negro race (greater, I Hunk, liv lus Laucasiati reuilnrceiiicni than by his African blood), once said lo me that he thought ns prejudice anil so cial and political untagonismdisapK'ared the races would blend, coalesce, and lie come iiouirogcncous. I do not agree with him. There is no natural affinity lietween the races. This solution of the problem is impossible. The relations be tween Ihe sexes in time of slavery were compulsory. The hybrid was the product ot relations between while miners ami black mothers, and never between black fathers and white mothers, and the infer ence from that result (etlmiigrnphicnlly I is conclusion of that cpicstion. Such u solution, in mr judgment, would perpetu ate the vices of both races and the virtues of neither. There is no blood poison so tntal as the adulteration of race. The colored eoplc, be continued, are hen-; they me natives; they arc citizens; man liir iiinii they are our political riuals. They came here involuntarily, ns prison ers ol war, captured in fight. They lire of ancient lineage genuine F. F. Vs. (Laughter.) Alter praising the colored people for their fidelity to tlieSouthdiiriiig thewnr, he said: h' seems incredible that grati tude should not hnve defended and shielded them Irom hideous and in describable wrongs nnd crimes of which thev have been for a uuartcr of a century the guiltless and unresisting vic tims. I lie snmv impulse wmcn maue iliem loyal to- their masters throughout the war lias made litem faithful to their deliverers since. Their allegiance to the putty of Lincoln and (Irnnt is (icrsistent and unswerving. Their instincts were more inlnllible than reason. They have voted with their friends. Four solutions of the problem, he said, had been suggested emigration, exter mination, ubsorption and disfranchise ment lint there was still n fifth solution which had never been tried; and that so lution was justice. I .ipiieal to the South, he exclaimed, to try the cxerimcnt of justice. Stack your guns, oien your bal lot boxes, register your voters, black and white; and i I, after the exicriment has been fairly and honestly tried, it np iwiirs that tlie African nice is incapable ot civilization, mid it it nptenrs thai the complexion burnt upon him by nu Indian sun is incompatible with freedom, 1 will pledge mysell lo consult with you about some measure of solving the race prob lem, but until then nothing can be done. The citizenship of the negro must Is; ab solutely recognized. His right to vote must lie admitted, and the ballots that he casts must lie honestly counted. These are essential preliminaries, conditions precedent to any consideration of the in terior uud fundamental ouestions ol race eipiality in the I'nited States, North or South. Those who fired the slaves ask nothing more; they will hecontent with nothing less. The exieriment must Ik lan k : ru il. This is the starting point anil this is the goal. The longer it is deferred the greater will lie the exasperation, and more doubtful the final result. As Mr. Ingalls took his seat he ws again loudlv applauded. He had spoken exactly two hours. Without attempting anv other business, the senate at 4 p. in. adjourned till Monday.

Mr. MeKiulry saitl the bill, as its title indi cated, wiis purely an administrative bill, ami was not intended to change the rate ot duties. The ncccKsitv lor the simplifi cation of the laws in relation to the col lection of revenue had la-ea first called to the attention of congress by Secretary Folgcr. A bill with this purpisc in view had lavn introduced in congress by Mr. Hewitt, of New Vork, mid h:nl received the npprovalof the waysand mcausi-om-mil tee, and subeiiientlv the Morrison uud Mills tai ill bills hail contained sub stantially the provisions ul the h ailing measure. Mr. Carlisle, while heaibnilied tlint the provisions of this bill writ- substantially the same as those contained in the Mor rison nnil Mills bills, said that the gentle men who nisi ced with him in his tariff views might not feel themselves in a posi tion lo give support to the bill while simidimi alone. There were certain pro visions which, while they did not in terms cliaiiL'r the rales of duty, would neces sarily increase tl duly.

Mr. McKinlcv aitul that anadmmistrii live bill was absolutely necessary for nn lionesl admiiii-trntion of the law.

We are fully con scious that it is to them that we owe the lint? pa ted success of the past yenr, in which our business has been more than doubled, and we can only regard it as a new evidence that our business maxims me such us to cause our customers to have confidence in us nnd attract those who are cautious in dealing with any I'hnrmHcist until they have become fully assured of the nature and extent of his business principles. In out dealing with the public we reulite that the most scru pulous care ami honesty are paramount in importance. If these are virtue in nil ordinary business transactions, they become sacred duties in Pharmacy, and without them no one can lie a true Phar macist. The health, maylie tlie lite, 01 those dealing with the Apothecary de tiends upon them. Hi consider it our most sacred duty to shun adulterations nnd spoiled as well as inferior drugs. They constitute an evil from which Phar macy suffers no less than the public. The -viV is not a new one, inaugurated in lute vears; it has existed as long as there were men wAose cupidity was stronger than their sense of justice, und it will loubtlcss continue as long as there may 'ie men with conceptions of business so vague that theyexiect to purchase gold for the money value of dross. There are no other moral principles required for transacting a Pharmaceutical business than are necessary for any other business. Unwavering integrity that remains unin 'luenced by the visions of g(dd along the road of ipiestionuble or deceitful prac tices is the only foundation for success that is worthy the name; it is so in TVery pursuit, and more particularly in Pharmacy, where us a matter of tieces iity it must lie combiiml with constant vigilance in nil directions, so as to secure all possible safeguards. These arc the principles which we have endeavored to live up to, und to which we trust our increasing success is due. We hope our former patious will show the same kindness townid us in the fu ture that they have in the past, knowing that no action ot ours will ever make them regret u continuance ol their fa vors.
