Washington, Fcbrunry 17. SENATE. Mr. Chnnrllcr presented wvernl ueti- tions from MiKsissippi rompluininfroi'thr suppresKioii of tiic repuhliciin votcin that State, nnd ri)rcs.n(iii(i thnt the o called Iceiiilnture ol MiKissiniii Intel recently en acted n law for exiiiMlmhinir n new con- Htitution for the State on the 12th of August, 1HU0, the (ante nut to be lub- initted to the people tor ratihcntion ; that it wan tile avowed purpose of the democrat to employ frntidulent methods to Deprive many intelligent citizens ol their franchise. Kclerred to the commit tee on privileges and election. Mr. Krve, from the select committee on the Pacific railroads, reported back ad versely two Pacific railroad funding bills referred to it. and in lieu of them reported nn original bill on the suhject with two reports, one of those reports touching the Union Pacific indebtedness and tin other the Central Pacific indebtedness. The Intter report (he said) had been drafted by the senator from Minnesota (Mr. Davis.) He explained thut the rea son that the two bills were retorted back adversely was that the committee had finally succeeded, to its own satisfaction, in consiiliilntinfr those hills into one. Tins bill Inow presented I continued me terms of nn adjustment with both com panies. Union Pacific and Central Pacific. After full explanation from Mr. Frye of the effect of the bill, nnd how it was framed, the bill was placed on the calen dar, and the reports were ordered printed . Mr. Chnndlcr ollered u resolution (which went over till to-morrow I cnlliiig on the attornev general for inlbrnintion as to the recent nssassinalion of W. II. Saunders, United States deputy marshal for the northern district of Florida. Mr. Deck presented the credentials ol Mr. Iilnckburu. for his new senatorial term from the 4th ol'.Moreli, 18'Jl, which were placed on file. 1 he sennte then proceeded to business on the calendar, and passed about two dozen bills (unobjected to) including the lollowing: To cnnlile the secretary ol tne interior to locate Indians in Florida upon lands in severalty: niiproprialini; $u,0(iufoi a statue and monument to James Madi son in the city ol Washington. The educational bill, "as unfinished business," wus taken up nt 2 o'clock, and Mr. Dlnir resumed the nrgunicnt in sup port of it. He called attention to what lie regarded ns having an important lienring on the question, the fact thnt the dciiendent pension bill hail been unan imously reHrted from the pension com mittee and would evidently llrom the absence of opposilitm) become a law: that it would add to the present pension expenditure from twenty to thirty mil lion a year, ana tnnt nimost tne wnoic of thnt sum would necessarily be dis tributed in the N'ort hern Statcs.'whilc not less thnn one-fourth of the tnx tor it (and probably three-eights) would fall on the Southern Stntes. The educational bill would act ns some sort of a compensation to the South by giving to that section the largest proportion nt seven millionsu year to be paid out in the aid of common school education. He supposed that the better the case was proved by him the less likelv it was that the hill would be come a law, because he had noticed thnt it was stated in the public print that he was destroying the chance of passing the bill by occupying so much time in his re marks. Itut'heguve notice to those un easy correspondents, and to newspapers generally, that he knew better than to submit the case to a jury until he hnd all the evidence in, ana then il there wus a wrong verdict, the responsibility would be on the jury. Hnviug been interrupted bv Mr. Coke in some remarks oca ring on the State of Texas, Mr. Illair went on to suv that he exiwctcd Messrs. Coke and Krngan to opMise the bill. In fact, he exiectcd a great many houtnern senators. whose power was Duill on aristocracy that owned the land and labor in the South before the war, to optosc it. Hut he warned them thnt revolutions did not go backward, nnd thnt the children of the country, norm ami noutn alike, were going to be educated. Education would lie the enterinir wedue to the establish mcnt of a new order of things even in Texas. Mr. Coke said that the State ol Texas sjient two or three times ns much money tor education n any other Stute iu the South, and there were vcrv few Northern Stute that aw'iit more. Texns had a school ivitctn which would com pare favorably with thut of any other Mate in tne union, ana skiii nearly nve million a year in common school eduen tion. Mr. Blair "Then why is Texas ov posed to other States receiving aid for their common schools ?" Mr. Coke "Do you desire an answer?" Mr. Hlair "1 do not desire to yield the Boor for any length of time. I am pro ceeding in a great hurry because of the frantic desire of this body to listen to me. Laughter. Owing to the pressure on the part of the senate to hear whnt I am laying, I ought to proceed, but if the senator wisnes to answer my question, will certainly yield. If not I will go on.' Mr. Blair occupied about three hour hut did not close his argument. The house amendment to the bill to have the statistic of mortgnge indebtedness ob tained in the next census wn now con curred in, and a conference win naked. Messrs. Hale, Davis and Ucrry were ap pointed conlcree on tne part ot tne sin ate. Adjourned. HOUSE After the rending of the lournnl Mr. Carlisle rose and said that since the 20tb of January his side of the house had been protesting every morning against the approvul of the journal, on the urnund that it contained nn entry made by the direction of the cakcr showing the name of certain member present not voting. Lint Fridnv the house hnd adopted a code of rules pro vitling lor inch practice. Aguinst this the democrat bud protested, and would nrotrst as an unconstitutional nructice. But il was a question which could not be decided in this house, and whenever proi er cases arose it would go to some otlur forum. Itwnithe purpose of his side or the house to see thnt this occasion should be laid in such hnpe 11 would permit It to be definitely passed upon; therefore, he no nw no reason why til journal, form of which the house hud Kansas tlly Tender Ilcef Can be purchased at nlj time from Mar tin s suaraci, uu 9, mam .u a right to prescrite, should not be ap proved. This was done. The speaker announced that this was suspension day, and the committees were called in order. Upon motion of Mr. Culbertson, of Texns, in behalf of the judicinry com mittee, a bill was passed for the relief of A. Lee. When the World's Fair committee was called, Mr. Candler, of Massachusetts, ollered the following resolution: Resolved. That Thursday and Fridnv, Fcbrunry 20th and 21st, after the a nroval of the journal, be set aside for general deimteon bills H,w3 anil b,nh World st-uir bills,) nna tnat tne vote be taken on Monday, Fcbrunry 24th, in the manner prescribed by the resolution submitted in the committee s report, un less tne nouse snail nave ucicrinincu nv n vote that the World's Fair shall not be held. Mr. Mills, of Texas, demanded tell ers, who were api ointed, and the result was announced by a vote of yeas, a... n w. !t I. Li; nays, o. mr, tvngurc mauc me point of no quorum. The speaker ran his eye rupidly over the house, and in a lew moments said, there are 172 members p.estnt; more than a quorum. Mr. Mc.Milhn. immediately protested that the rules prescrilied tellers as the means of ascertaining .he presence or absence of a quorum, and it was not proiKT for the chair to count. 1 nc spenser inquired wuiiiruic required the presence of tellers to de ermine the presence of 11 quorum. Air. mcmiiiiii quo teo irom tne rule touching motions to susicnd the rules which requires that the motion shall Ik submitted to the house to he seconded by a majority by tellers, il demanded. 1 he speaker inquired 11 mere was anv other suggestion the gentleman desired to make. Mr. McMillm replied, that the ma jority by teller had not seconded the motion, thnt it was not competent lor the speaker to make a auoruin by his gavel or his pencil. T he siicnker responded, that a minority has seconded the motion by a v ute ol yens, 114; nays, ri; nnd u debnte on the motion was now in order. But the demo crats made an earnest resistance to the proceeding. Mr. Mc.Millin contended tlmttncre was 110 rule that permitted the speaker to count n quorum, except during the pro gress of un uye and no call. Mr. Dockery said thut the rule cited bv Mr. Mc.Millin did nut seem to provide for a count by the sjienker nt all, but only bv tellers. 1 he Hiienker replied that the rule pro vided for the count of those who voted. The vote hnd resulted 118 to 8; thut seemed to lie n majority. Mr. Mc.Millin insisted that the point was that no quorum voted: neither the speaker nor tiny other man could assume tnnt tne men counted were 111 mc nouse while the vote wus being taken. If they were not, then they bad no right to vote. The sneaker replied, that he had an nounced nt the time, that there were 172 nienilxTS present by actual count. No one was counted who was not present at the time the vote wn taken. If u mem ber did not desire to vote the presumption was that they acquisced in the result ot the vote. Messrs. McMillan, Illnnd, Mills, Can non, Carlisle. Hlount, Lodge, burrows, Peters. Herbert of Alabama, Buekalcw of Pennsylvania, and Adams of Illinois, argued further upon the subject. Mr. Lrisp, ot Ocorgia, argued that the rule taken in connection with others clearly contemplated a count by tellers alone, und not a joint count ny tellers and the speaker. The very object of tin rule wus dclcatcd by the construction which took from tellers the right to count. The house did not want any voting by implication, the rules Had been adopted despite the protest of the minority, thut the minority should huve nt least a fair construction ul them. Mr. Dinuley, ol Maine, smd unless they were to go back upon the decision al ready reached the house must nguin sus tain the right ol the speaker to count 11 quorum. 1 he speaker said mat tne provision 01 the second clause, 28th rule, was ecu liar. The question was one like that re peatedly passed upon by the house. Un der the constitution a quorum was nec essary to transact business; whether it wns necessary fur them to act was the question in dispute. Since it had been decided here it hnd Itcen discussed Iroin one end of the country to the other, nnd precedents without number had been cited on each side. In this house the question wns settled that if a majority was present to do business their presence was all thnt wa required to make n quorum. If they declined to vote their inaction could not be in the pathway ol those who did their duty. He hud never seen a decision of a court which was nil verse to the position now assumed by the house. The only question remaining wus one of detail, by what method should the presence of a quorum be ascer tained? Examination of nil books on parliamentary practice would show that 11 had been the practice from time imme morial for the presiding officer to deter mine it in such 11 manner us lie deems ac curate and suituble to the presence ot a uuorum. In conclusion the ipcnker said: "In this ense the chair repeatedly counted the house during the vote nnd after it closed, nnd being summed n constitutional quo rum was present to do business, there' tore he announces that the yea are 114 and the nay H, and thnt the motion has licen seconded. Mr. Chandler then took the floor nnd announced his satisfaction nt the conclu sion of the committer' work. The house then suspended its rules nnd discussed the World' Fair bill, and niter returning passed some minor bills, und adjourned. I UC House will uincunn inc ijueaiiun uu the next susiicnsion day.
