The senate in executive session conhrmed all the cabinet nominations by nearly aunanimous Tote in each case. Washington, March 10. The vice- president presented a communication from AV m. Urton rcquestiDK the return of about 30,000 messages delivered to the chairman of the elections committee in accordance with the senate's order. The senate then went into executive sessiou. Washington, March 10. As soon as the senate went into executive session to day the various cabinet nominations were in turn reported back accomnanied in each case with a unanimous recom mendations for confirmation. A motion was then made to take ud the nomination of David M Key as post master peueral for mmediate action. A single obiection would haye prevented action upon it to day but no objection was interposed and the vote upon the question of confirming was taken by yeas and nays and resulted yeas 54 nays 2, the negative votes being cast by Democrats this vote seemed to be regarded as a test of the strength of the opposition to the remaining nomina tions and no further opposition was made against any of them beyond the demand for roll call in the cases of Schurz and Evarts. The vote on Sehurz's nomina tion was 44 for confirmation and 2 against. The vote on Evarts's nomination was about the same. Quite a number of senators on both sides abstained from voting and the few negative votes in each instance were cast by Democrats. Senator Cameron, of rennyslvania. voted for Lvarts, fechurz and Key, remarking that bis vote for Evarts was under what he regarded as the instructions of his committee foreign re lationswhich had instructed him to re port favorably. Mr. (Jonkling refrained from voting on this nomination. The nomination of Geo. W. McCrary to be secretary of war, Ricbard W, Thompson secretary of the navy, and Chas. Devens to be attorney general were confirmed wi hout roll call or even a division. Th news of the confirmation was re ceived at the White House and at the executive department almost as soon as action by the senate was taken and elicit ed very satisfactory expressions. The president simply said he was very glad of the prompt action. I he president will send several nomina tions to the senate Tuesday, among them, WASHINGTON PETRIFIES. An Extraordinary Discovery at Mt. Vernon. Wathington Feb, 15) Correspondence of the San Francisco Chronicle. We visited Washington's tomb to-day at Mou'Dt Vernon, Va., some twelve miles from this city down the Potomac, and we had the unusual privilege of beholding the mortal remain? of the immortal Washing ton. Visitors to the tomb will remember that the west wall of the same has for several years been in a fallen condition and in tjreat need of repair. A few days since part of it tumbled into the totub, completely covering the sarcophagus of Washington, and also that of Martha Washington. In order to repair the dam age in a competent manner, it was found necessary to remove them a few feet from their resting plac I he one containing the remains of Martha Washington was removed first, but attracted no attention, But the unusual weight of the one con taining the remains of Washington aroused the curiosity of the official who was superintending the work of removal, and it was decided to open the sarcopha gus in order to ascertain the cause. This was done, and the remains were found to be petrified, in fact a solid stone resembling a statue, the features perfectly natural, with the exception of eyes and ears, no trace of which can be seen. J. he body is ot a dark kalhery color, and may be said to be a soft sand stone, which would likely break should an attempt be made to remove it from the sarcophagus. Edward linker, an aged colored man, who has resided upon the farm since he was a boy, and who assisted in removing the remains from the old tomb to the present one, informs us that it is thirty-eight years since their last removal- At that time they had rested in the old tomb thirly-eight years, and were exhumed in a stats of preservation be yond all expectation, Demg a solid com pact mass, with the skin drawn tightly to the bones, petrifaction no doubt having commenced its work. The repairs to the tomb will be . completed to-day and the sarcophagus is not likely to be opened again for a century to come, unless, in deed, in the case of an accident, as in present instance, and petrification complete its work, and the remains of ioiui'rtal Washington will then be as during as his memory is dear.

At a meeting ot the senate committee on privileges and elections this morning the case ot m, 1 . Ivellogg, claimant tor a seat in the senate from Louisiana, was taken up. The Republican members took the ground that the credentials presented by Kellogg were regular, and that he has a prima facie title and should be sworn in and allowed to take his seat at once ac cording to precedents established by long usage, and investigation as to which of the two rival governments in Louisiana is the legal one, should be deferred until Kellogg has taken his seat.

The Season of Inflammation. The cold, piercing winter storms are as detructive of human life as any of the terrible epidemic diseases, the titst appeal -anc?: of which in a commuuity strikes terror in the heart of the most brave, As cold weather in winter is unavoidable, it crrates little alarm, although its injurious effects on the health of aduit persons are worse than those of the hottest season of the year. Think of the late Mayor Have- meyer, of New 1 ork, who, with a robust constitution, and notwithstanding his ad vanced age erj iyinc excellent health, was killed ontright by a two hours, exposuie to a chilly November storm. Sudden deaths from this cause, it is true, are ex ceptional but inflammatory diseases result from it very frequently, and they but too often prove fatal to the patient. It is well known that pneumonia, inflammation ot the brain, inflammation of the bowels, in flammation of the lungs, etc., are most dangerous diseases, and that, to have the life of the patient, it is of the utmost im portance to arrest them in their first stage, as ia their latter stages thty will bafae the skill of the most emiuent physicians, whilst in their incipient state they are promptly and easily curedby Had way's Ready Relief. In every familly this invaluable specific remedy for all inflammatory diseases should be constantly kept on hand. The expense is a mere trifle, and saves more thau twenty times the amount in doctors' or druggists bills. TLe rough weather in winter allows but little out-door exercise, which is so necessary to excite the diges tive orgaus to more energetic activity. This want is fully supplied by Radway's Regulating Pills, than whieh does not exist a more perfect remedy for regu lating the bowels. Lastly, it may be men tioned that a blood purifier, used in a proper way m the winter season, has a most excellent effect upon the system. 37ew Transportation Sates.

I was rendered par tially deaf, had buzz.ug in the hea i, pains across th irmple, dizzy spells, weak and painful eves. swollen and ulceraied tonsils, hard and constant cough, severe pain across the chest, and every in dication of consumption. My head ached all the time. The matter accumulated so rapidly m my head and throat that I coaid not keep them free. Frequently at night 1 would spring out of bed, it seemed to me, at ilie point of suffocation. I would then have recourse to every means in my power to dislodge tne niucus irom my inroat ana Bead tie fure being able to sleep again. For a period uf six years my tonsiis were ulcerated and so much in flamed that I could with difiiculty swallow. Ill ually consulted an eminent snrueon in regard to an operation on them, but ut his reuqest postponed it. The constant iuflatumation -nd ulceration in my throat caused by ihe poisonous matter dropping clown from my heau had so irritated and inllamed my lungs that I coughed incessantly, a deep, hard cough. MeauwhiU my system began to show the effects of this disease, so ihat I lost flewh, grew pale and showed every symptom ot nn early duatu by consumption. When matters lad reached this stage, or nbout six months ago, 1 begun the use of Sanforus ItADli al Cl RB Foit Catabrh. After using the first bottle 1 began to improve rapidly. T e first dose seemed to clear my head as I had not known it to be for years. It seemed gradually to arrest the discharges. It stopped my cotib in three days. liy using it as a garg e I soon reduced the inllammation and swell'iig of my tonsils, so that they soon ceased to trouble m-. The soreness across my chest disappeared, the huzz.jg roises in my head ceasid, my senses of hearing and ol seeing were completely restored, and enery symptom of diset.se thai had reduced me to the verge of the grave disappeared by the use of Saspord's Radi cal Cube fob C'atabkh. I have been thus explicit because, as a druggist. I nave seen a great ceal ot suffering rroni Catarrh, and hope to convince many that this is a great remecy. 1 am laminar witn tne treatment ot latarrnas practised by the best physicians, and have consul ted the most eminent about my case. I have used every kind of remedy and apparatus that hive ap peared during a period of six years past, and have, while following their use, taken great care of my general health, but obtained no relief or encour agement from any of them. Since curing myself with Sanford's Radical Curb, I have recommended it in over one hundred cases without a single case of failure, aud have In numerous instances received wholesale orders from parties to whom I have sold one bottle.
