Judge Woods Receives the Nomina tion for Justice of the Su nreme Court. A Kill of Interest to Miners Intro duced by Senator Teller Yesterday Morning- General Schurz to Make St. Louis His Home and TÍHte a Book for the Appletons. Senate. A bill was iutroduccd bv Hill of Colorado for the retirement of the small legal tenders by Peudletou to regulate tud promoto the efficacy -of the civil service. lie also introduced a bill against the political assessment of United Slates officials. Burnside and Merrill advocated the bill devoting part of tho proceeds of the sales of public lauds to public edu cation. Brown stated that be believed that the republican Institutions could be insured by the spread of education and appealed to the r publicans of all parts of the country to secure a gen eral benefit by this maus. He stood at the desk ou the repub lican side of the chamber and faced the republican members while speak ing and was listened to with marked imprest by all present. The bill whs then informally laid aside until to-morrow when it is de signed to reach a vole. By motion of (Jockrell t hi Senate took up (he bill for tin; relief of Sam mi A. Lowe, and appropriating lo him $-1,760 for services and expenses as clerk of the territorial legislature of Kansas in 185). Ingalls of Kansas, said (his was an attempt to have grafted for the com pilation of what are known as the "Bogus Statutes" ol Kansas or the slave code which was repealed and publically burned by the free slavers as soon as they obtained control of the stale. The statues were the black est and most damnable body of laws ever nttemp ed to be passed. They never were recognized i laws iu Kansas. Ingalls iu responding to Vest said he did not propose nt this period of the Nations history to enter upon the vindication of.John Brown who was executed as a traitor on the 2nd of D comber 1857; buc the nation took up the flag that.he carrier1 at Harper's Ferry up through four years of war to Appotamattox curt house. John Brown was about four years ahead f his time. House. lie ford of Colorado introduced a bill for the retirement of small legal tenders The bill pensioning the widow of the late President Tyler allowing her $100 per month passed. Baker reported the fortification bill and the House went into commit tee to consider it. Wood agreed to let it have precedence over the fund ing bill. After the debate Johnston of Virginia under direction of the military committee offered an amend ment increasing the appropriation from a bund red thousand to a half million. About n Nomination. Washington, Dec. 15. The nomina tion of D. A. McKiulcy, as consul at Hona ula was presented by his broth er, Congressman McKiulcy of Ohio. So far as knowu there i no recom mendation for his appointment on file from any member of the Califor nia delegation. It is believed that his brother, who is an old friend of Pres dient Hayes tried to get him the ap pointment of collector of internal rev enue for the district of San Francisco but the president while readily agree ing to provide for him preferred to givtt him 'he place vacated by John Morton at Honalula. There is much comment this cyeniug concerning the nomination. Circuit Judge Woods lias received the uniniuitiou for the position on the supreme bench resigned by Jus tice Strong. IIu is conceded to be an oblo judge and is highly esteemed by the lawyers of the Southern circuit, but there is much indignation among Southern senators and no little I musemeut among disinterested out- dersthat he is credited to Georgia al tiiough a citizen of Ohio by birth and residence until the period of the war of the rebellion. Several Southern senators declared emphatically that they will opp. be his confirmation o.i the ground that it is grossly unfair to proceed in this way to fill the supreme bench with Ohio.meu. The bill iutroduccd by Senator Hill oí Colorado to-day for the retirement of one and two dollar greenbacks is a measure of much interest for the sil ver producing regions. , He intends to support it with a speech iu the Senate which will present 6ome striking facts For instance, he has ascertained that the cost of maintaining in circulation the amount of the small greenbacks uww outstanding, between forty and fifty million dollars, is no less than three hundred thousand dollars a year it being ncee68ary to redeem and re print them so frequently. The main purpose of fie bill of course is to cu large the demand for silver coin by an amount equal to the aggregate of the one and two dollars now so rapidly accumulating in the U. S treasuty. It is remarkable in this connection that Great Britain issues no money of a smaller denomination than a five pound note aud that in Franco also, small notes were un known. Senator Teller to-day iutroduccd a bill providing that auy person owu ing six or a less number of mining lodes, ledges or blank claims ad jacent to each other or not more than a half mile apart on which the as sessment labor for the. first year has been performed may thereafter per form upon any one claim of the com bined number the entire assessment ol labor duo upon the whole number of claims; if pay mineral is reached on the claim worked it símil then cense to be counted ns one combination and another shall select on which to work the assessment ot the remainder and so on until pay mineral Is reached on all or the ground abandoned. The bill also providesthat mining claims located since the 10th ot May 1872. whether located by one or more per sons shall not exceed 1,500 feet in length aloug the vein or lode and that no claim shall extend more than 300 feet on each side of the middle of the lode Senator Farley to-day introduced a bill directing the secretary of the treasury to pay J. Bavard Smith of Baltimore $578, the amount of cou pons of thirty-five Indian war bonds issued by California in 185-' the liabi! itiy for which was subsequently as sumed by the general' government. It appears that these coupons were not presented for payment until the balance of the congressional coupons had elapsed into the United Slates treasury. Vlterly UefeiiNeles. Washington, Dec. 15. Iu the debate on the Fortification Appropriation Bill in the House to-day, Ellis com plaiucd that with 100,000 miles of ut terly defenseless sett coast we were in a sad plight as war might come at anytimr. The nations of the w rid were constantly quarreling and a strotig navy was our surest, safeguard. Randall urged economy aud said that increased appropriations were useless. There was no danger of war. El is referred to the iuler-oceauic canal and the possible complications arisiug therefrom as an additional reason for sea coast defense. Kandall said the European financiers refused to move iu that matter unless they had the ab so'ute comnicudaiiod of the American government. Did not Ellis know that in regard to the wars in áouth America, other governments had sought the United S ates to tako the initial steps lor bringing about peace. The European government in this in stance had practically acknowledged the Monroe doctrine aud instead ot undertaking to make peace themselves tehy had come to the United States and had asked the United States to be arbiter. lie maintained in view his tory, the apprehensions that wero at tempted to be raised there, that this country was to have a foreigu war and that therefore appropriations should be made, which were not es sential, and, which if tho policy was continued would cause a large increase of expenditures which were not wise nud he appealed to the House, with out regard to party, to meet this at tempt to increase appropriations on the thicshoid and prevent thai policj beiug inaugurated as the policy of the expiring House. Lei increase :n appropriations rest with those win would come to the néx! congress. With reucwud confidence the govern ment was lather to wield armaments to decrease the burden of debt aud take off the taxation made by revenue aud internal taxatiou laws and re lieve the people instead of at the very first opportunity after the recent elec tion increasing the burdens of taxa tion, lie thought that thereby the republicans would commend thcin selves to further aud ultimate confi dence of those from whom they came. Itetirlnft Small Legitl Tendera. Washington, Dec. 15. A bill was introduced to-day by senator Hill ol Colorado for the retirement of small legal tender notes. It provides thai iu place ot legal tender noies of de nominations less than five dollars which may be held or hereafter pre sented for redemption the Secretary of the Treasury shall substitute a note of the same character but of a denom ination as nearly as practicable of standard silver dollars coined during that month and that no more legal tender notes of lower denomination than five dollars shall be printed. A copy of the bill was introduced in tho House to-dav bv Representative Belford. Entered Upon Their Work. New York.
