Washington, April C (Senate.). The feature of the Senate's proceed ing to-day was Mr. Wolcott's silver speech. Thy Colorado Senator ob tained the floor at the conclusion of the morning business, which terminated at l -'i.'O. Mr. Morgan, under the usual i. lie of courtesy prevailing in the Sen at.', called .up again his resolutions, which -wero on Monday last consigned to the calendar, and being recognized ly the Vice-President for this purpose, yielded the tlor to the Colorado Sen ator. Mr. Wo! cot t spoke with marked energy and histrionic force. Frequent ripples of laughter were raised in the galleries by some of his humorous terms of expression. When some of the Senators gathered on the lounges in the rear of the orator, partially in terrupting the proceedings by convers ing in a loud tone of voice, Mr. Teller rose and demanded order, whereupon dead Silence was enforced throughout the re-it of the addrees. In the course of his speech Mr. Wolcott said: "We may as well face thy truth cn the sil ver question. The bill for free coin age h is been put to sleep in another body and will not again be resuscitated. I say that free coinage could not be come a law. The friends of free coin age, however, did hope, and believed that it would at least score some ad vancement. If the vote of the two Houses in Congress could have been polled when Congress met in Decern-i r.e11 disagreed with the dis ber, it is within the limits of conserva- tinuished gentleman from Maryland, tism to say that in the other body, a clear majority of fifty, and in this chamber, a majority of twelve, would gkdly have ranged themselves on the side of free coinage. To-day, if a vote were had here on a motion to take the bill from the calendar, it would un doubtedly fail, and we are left fighting the air with some general resolutions. The first great force opposed to the bill was, in this Congress, as it has been for three years, the present ad ministration. No stone has been left unturned, no effort unemployed to compass the defeat of the measure. The administration assured us that it looked forward with ardent and hopeful anticipation to the time when gold and silver would go hand in hand together, the sure defense of national credit. This was for western consumption. One little qualification was added: That it would first be necessary to se cure the consent of other nations, Eng land included; a consent we ara as apt to secure under existing conditions, and with the methods employed, as w are to catch larks when the heavens fall. The President might as well have said that he was inclined to turn Quaker, and would if the Pope would become, (Quaker too. Thus both sides were to be lulled the East by the po licy of inaction; the West by the ear nest assurance of bi-metalism in the future, in that to-morrow which was never to dawn. And to the miserable work began, the offices were parceled out, and the party whip cracked, and the wavering members were influenced. It has apparently been effectively doue, but, Mr. Presi dent, there is always a to morrow. No body is deceived, but it would have been a graceful act in an outgoing President to have permitted Congress to have voted according to its own in clination on one measure of national importance. "We are charged with being the disturbers of the financial peace of the country. For several years' past, there has nev r been any sort of finan cial di.-aster or stringency on this side of the water, or the other, that it has nt.t been atributed to silver. No mat ter how independent the occurrence rimy have been of any sort of relation ship to our financial policy. It would le instructive if the Nestor of finance, on the committee, who has for years been the .Jeremiah of silver coinage, will tell us how it happened that when the other day, free coinage received a Jtab, which everybody recognized as fatal, the stock market dropped instead of rising, and gold for shipment is called for with the usual regularity. Infallibility belongs alone to the ma jority of the finance committee. "It is a mistake for the representa tives of one section to seek financial aggrandizement at the expense of an other. We have a common interest, a common country and should share a oinmon prosperity. The music of the l-'otns in New England, the song of the 'Id and the cotton plantation, the eho of the woodman's axe in Oregon smd the ring of the prospector's pick the granite of the Western moun tains, all bit nd in one melodious har mony an lull the same story of the energy of the freemen who conquer -'"'ess, because, in this country, in dastry and hope are companions." At the close of Mr. Wolcott's 'peecli, which was quite lengthy, ""re was a subdued but irrepressible outburst of applause called out by the (I,'gunce and eloquence of its diction and the remarkable effectiveness of its delivery. Mr. Morgan called for the reading of the amendment to his silver resolutions ottered yesterday. This being done and the amendment being thus placed on the calendar subject to be called up for discussion at any time, the Senate weat back to the much delayed Indian appropriation bill. Mr. Voorhees addressed the Senate in favor of the army control amendment to the bill. lie vigorously attacked the civil administration of Indian affairs and fre quently referred to a memorandum he held in his hands, whicBled Mr. Dawes to Inquire: "Who is thatsaiemo- p rand jm from?" , - ! . Mr. Voorhees "It is from me." Mr. Dawes "I did not know whether you could give authority for It. Mr. Voorhees ."I can, for every word of it, if it becomes necessary." Subsequently Mr. Voorhees said he would pledge himself "with the knowl edge ' he could produce to overwhelm the Indian management with proof of false weights, rotten meats and every kind of mismanage ment, and that was the reason he fa vored a transfer to the army. Mr. Higgins, of Delaware, announced his intention to change his vote and sup port the change to army officers, being induced thereto by the facts as to Indian management stated by the Senator from Nebraska, Mr. Mander son. Mr. Allison remarked that these same facts confirmed bim in an opposite opinion. Mr. Gjrman, in a vigorous speech, denounced the pro posed change from civilian army offi cers as an assault upon 'our institu tions and upon the .people of the United States. He condemned with out stint the "shoulder strap system of civil government." Mr. Cock- and favored the change, because he be lievtd it would be best for the Indian best for the white man and it would save money for the tax-payers. The motion to strike out was lost by 25 yeas to 28 nays, so the House amend ment for the detail of army officers is retained. The bill with some unim portant further amendments was final ly passed and at 5 p. m. the Senate went into executive session for a few minutes and adjourned until to-morrow HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. The following measure was passed Resolution inquiring whether the Post master (Jeneral directed the payment 1VIUKT1I; ot the expenses of the conven tion of postmasters recently held in Washin- rmm.e3 ot ths Clty- lhe defence will ton, and if so, by what authority.

Com trarv to exnition. n flm;,aKia.. modore Weaver and Lieutenant Wal trary to expectation, an amicable ar rangement was reached as to the limit of time for the consideration of the tree wool bill, and the clouds of yester day disappeared. Mr. McMillin moved to go into committee of the whole on the bill and consented to limit the de bate to one and a half hours and the time to be equally divided, and asked Mr. Burrows to accept it as a fair com promise, which was agreed to. The House then went into committee of the whole (Mr. Blount, of Georgia, in the chair), ths pending motion being that of Mr. Burrows to strike out the word '"wools." This was naturally rejected. Mr. Otis (Farmers' Alliance) of Kan sas, moved to strike out the first section. Mr. Henderson, of Illinois, opposed the bill." Mr. Lind, of Minnesota, spoke in a similar way and said he be lieved in equal protection to all. Mr. Lanham, of Texas, favored the bill, but he advocated a more comprehen-v sive measure. Mr. Babbitt, of Wis consin, favored the measure. Mr. Mc Keighan, of Nebraska, made a pointed speech favoring the measure, because it proposed to place manufac tured goods on the free list and abrogated odious specific duties. Mr. J. D. Taylor, of Ohio, and Mr. Dingley, of Maine, opposed the bill. Mr. McMillin, of Tennessee, in charge of the bill, said that by this bill an op portunity was presented to the people to relieve themselves of a great burden. Let him who would go back to his constituents and say that he had voted to keep a tariff on wool at nearly 100 per cent. (Applause on Democratic side.) All the amendments submitted bp the Republicans to the first section of the bill were voted down and the committee proceeded with the second section. Mr. Breckinridge, of Ken tucky, demanded the bill and while it was not all that he could desire, yet it was a long step in the right direction. Mr. Milliken, of Maine, opposed the bill. Mr. Boutelle, of Maine, opposed the bill and defended the system of protection. Mr. Mallory, of Florida, favored the bill and opened his remarks by the quotation "Nero fiddled while Rome burned" and said that the Re publican party had been indulging in jibs, jeers and inuendoes ever since this bill was under consideration. The debate was devoid of special interest and principally conspicuous for the large number of speakers. The sec tions of the bill were read. The com mittee then rose and the bill was re ported to the House with a favorable recommendation. The House then adjourned. Anarchists in the Austrian Capital By Cable to the State Chronicle.

THURSDAY MORNING, APRIL T, ISM. WISE-SKINMER. . The Herald Prints the Story of a Sen sational social Uuarrel. By Telegraph to the State Chronicle. New York, April 6. The Herald this morning prints a sensational article purporting to give the history of quarrel between the families of John fc. Wise and L-oU W. r. Skinner, of Virginia. The story is that Mr. Wise spoke disparagingly of Miss Belle Green, granddaughter of Col Skinner, when requested to invite Miss Green to a series of dances nven by Mrs. Wise's set. Miss Grpen in formed Col. Skinner, who called on John S. A lse in New York, and not receiving a satisfactory explanation. he wrote Mrs. Wise, su22estins? that she set Miss Green right and apologize. lhis seems to place the matter in such a light that if Mrs. Wise does not apologize, the affair may be settled be tween John Si Wise and Col. Skinner. Col. Skinner is a Southern gentleman of culture and distinction. When a young man he was an attache of the United Mates legation in Fans in the time of Louise Phillippe. He had since travelled the world over, fought duals and held a professorship at Lex ington university. Since reaching old age his chief joy is the love of his granddaughter, Miss Green.

He had fought all the duels he intend ed to. Mrs. Wise had never said any thing against Miss Green. If Miss Green was excluded from a social function, it was because some members of the dancing class' objected, a privi lege which was always allowed to those getting up such an affair.

We see a great deal said about this man and that man for Governor, but we see no necessity for such talk. We have no candidate, except the nominee of the Democratic party. But as a matter of justice to a faithful official, one who has been ever ready and wil ling to serve the Democratic party in whatever capacity called upon, we think Thomas M Holt, the present in cumbent, entitled to the nomination for Governor on the Democratic ticket. His administration has been safe, wise, conservative and soundly Democratic, and he is entitled to an endorsement at the hands of his party. We believe he is the strongest man amon g the Democrats of Moore county. Winners on the Turf. By Telegraph to the State Chronicle. Gloucester, N. J., April 6.

Yesterday's Wilmington Star said: 'The Governor is anxious to meet rep resehtative citizens of Wilmington and to have their opinions and suggestions in regard to the encampment, lie prefers to have all the regiments en camp at Wrightsville. General Glenn favored a division of the encampment between Wrightsville and Asheville, ! mainly because he did not believe the appropriation of $5,000 sufficient, and for the further reason that the people of A.-heville promised a contribution of $1,000 to make up the deficiency, if two of the regiments went into camp at that place. He has often expressed a preference for Wrightsville, provided the encampment could be made there with the regular appropriation the only means it commands."
