Washington, February 10, SKNATIv. The resolution herctofinv offered bv Mr. Chnntller calling on the uttornrv L'cncrnl ftir infbrrmition of the nssnssinn' tion of W. U. Siiiinders, tlrpiity I'nitc Stntcs marshal in the northern district of Florida, was taken up, and Mr. I'nsco proceeded to itddreiis the scnute in expla nation of the acts and circumstances of the case. Mr. Pasco hud not concluded his re marks when the hour of 2 o'clock ur rived, and the educational bill came up as "unnntsiieri nustness. Air. iiintr. however, yielded the floor to Mr. Wilson, of Iowu, on whose motion the senate hill appropriating $100,000 for the pub lic litiildiuR nt Fort DodRe, Iowa, was taken from the calendar nnd passed, Mr. Call cnlliniT attention to the fnct that this was the fourth public building bill passed for Iowa nt this session. On motion of Mr. Slcukbride, the senate bill appropriatittfr $UH,nH) for public building at l.niisinj;, Mich., was taken from the calendar and pnssctl. Mr. llliur then resumed his argument in favor of the educational bill. Incitlrn ttdlv to the sentence occurring in the re uort of the democratic smicrintcudcnt of COllClllinn in ieorj;i". .lr- "loir iinneu why should not the bill la-come it law. The republican l.nrty, he tiiid, was pledged to it. Ninny able nnd dislin Kitishcd demKTts were in fit vor of it. President Ilnrrison had declined the necessity of providim; for popular educa tion as this bill did. There was nothiin,' to hinder it, he said, except the opHi tion of those who buildup in this coun try un oiKisitiR Hvstem the prncticnl school system to the destruction of tin schools of the country. lie spoke ol those who "me enjjUK'd in secret and in nien machinations OKninst the bill, and who comprehend how, if this bill posses, it will jfjve the jrcnt future of the repub lic to nubile schools." I While it Interferes, he said, with t'.c rights of no one, while it. die not inlir lere with those who claim n mrmlK-rsh'p of len millions, it i. nevertheless un as sertion by the nntiim of its will to edit cnte their children in lite public iion-sc-tionnl schools. Hut mote of that here after, if ncccssarv. Occnsionally I inn obliged to let out it little which Hilicy ohliKftme Kcnernlly to suppress. Tins bill, il it is to fail, will have lieen killed bv packed committees, individual mem bers of which have been threatened by annthtnins from their church if they ven ture to support it, and I Hive notice to those who proMiseto kill this bill by in direction nnd by fraud, and by tricks un worthy of any other lobby around the capitol, that they have blows to receive as well at Mows to Rive.

Taking up the report of the school superintendent in Tennessee, Mr. Hlnir remarked, in n tone of sarcasm, that he supposed that the senators from that Stute would lie in the chamber in a week or two. At all events all he said would be in the record, no matter what the press ditl. The senate had a record that was a glorious little ptiier of their own. If tie should be returned to the tennte for the next thirtv or forty yenrt he niennt to make an etTort to have the Congres sionnl Record distributed to the people of the I nlled Btules Rratujlotisly, to the numhrr of at least Simi.oho. The senate needed a paper. If it published a utier itself, unil circuluUd it gratuitously, it could reach the people with the truth hut not until then. The private press, said be. Unit runs only lor ils own emolument, nnd hns to muke money, nnd Unit Ira vet out most of the truth, cseciHlly if it it unpnlitn hie, is n poor press to relv upon, This great American press ol ours is the source of more mischief in thit country than there would lie if we had no press at all, There may come a time when n dog light will not be mure important, in the opinion of this press, than the great school bill; but that time hat not been reached. Coming buck to the statement which he hnd been about to rend nt to the con dition of the public schools in Tennessee, he expressed the wish that tome page would notify the Tennessee senators ol what he was going to read. H is remarks having lieen suspended no us to ullow the message tn be received from the house. Mr. Hlnir expressed the hope that he would not be interrupted nny more by such small matters. (Laughter.) Mr. Dolph asked him if he would yield for a motion for an executive session and Mr. Blair replied: Oh! no, unless I am obliged to; I have got only two dnys left. The executive session seems to come with unaccountable frequency nt this time. We Had two of them yester day. 1 hope tlie tennte will not pre thut motion now, what 1 am saying is ton interesting. (Laughter. Mr. Ihilph did not insist on the motion fur an executive session nnd Mr. Illalr went on with the reading of the reKirt, nnd letters at to the illiteracy in the South, commenting upon tbrni as he went along. Finally at 4.4.1 he yielded far Mr. iKilph't motion, anil lifter an ex ecutive trssmu the senate nt ft.MO ad journed. IIOI'SI!.

Mr. Kogert, nf Arkansas, objected to its consideration, although Mr. Mutter worth declared that the effect would be to deny the I'nited Btntct representa tion nt the conference, Mr. Howell, of Illinois, chairinnii of the committee on elections, gave notice that he would cull up the West Virginia contested election case of Atkinson vs. Pendleton forcousitlerallon next Wcilncs- tiny. ; ' Sir.

Incendiary Flrca at Rocky Mount. Kalkioh, X. C. February 19. News was received here to-dav of a series of in cendiary fires at Ktcky Mount. The trouble seems to hare grown out of some unpleasantness in connection with the ne groemigrntion matter. On Monday night the extensive carriage works of Hackney llros. were distroyed by fire of incendiary origin. Last night the building at the fair grounds at Rocky Mount were fired by negroes, thcobject being, it is thought, to draw a crowd there from the town, that the work nf destruction might lie completed. No further trouble occurred, however, but the town is thoroughly patrolled as other incendiary work is hourly apprehended. A Technical Cane F-alnbllahed. Aitit STA, (la., Felirunry 19. The tak ing of testimony before I'nited States Commissioner Alexander in the case against citincns of Sharon, tin., ehnrged with conspiracy against and intimida tion of Postmaster Duckworth was con cluded today. All the material facts have been published. The record will probably establish a technical ensdi against the accused; but in view ol the fact, that no personal violence was done to Postmaster Duckworth, and thnt he hns lieen unmolested in the discharge nf the duties of bit office, it is thought thnt the case niuv be dismissed at the April term nf the I'nited States court to be held in Augusta.

NORTH DAKOTA'S CONDITION Monled Men and the Preaa Try lo Conceal the True Condition. New York Btnr. esterdnv's mail brought me a letter from Henry Holler, of Hurllctt. N.
