The friends of the Nicaragua bill were very confident for two days that they would triumph, but after four hours of debate the chair was sustained, 127 to 100. The senate committee on commerce has completed its considerations of the rivers and harbors bill. Aside from, the provisions for the construction of the Nicaragua canal the committee increased the cash appropriations to the extent of about 2,000,000 over the house appropriation, while the amount of continuing contracts is increased to the extent of about 10,000,000. The house has passed the sundry civil appropriation bill, to which it had devoted over a week without mak , ing any important amendments.
