Hnrtingtnn 1'or Harmony.
LONDON , Augusts. A meeting of the lib
eral unionists was hold at Devonshire house ,
the residence of Hartlngton , to-day. Hart-
Ington presided and airong those present
wcro Joseph Chamberlain , James Kylands ,
Lalne , Huneagu and Jesse Colllngs. Hart
lngton , In a long speech upon the coming
parliamentary work , proposed that all atti
tude of hostility toward the adherents of the
late government be abandoned. Tlio liberal
bcctlons should co-opeiate in an endeavor to
secure the enactment of useful legislationand
oppose unltedlv all proposals looking to the
separation ot the emplio. Ho said the con
solidation of tlio party was only a matter of
time. Towards that end the unionists should
at once Identify themselves with the rest of
the liberals by taking seats Ui the commons
among them. Ho reiterated his opinion that
the split In the party would soon heal.
Cliamboil.dn followed Hartlntfton. He
said he would willingly accept the leadeishlp
of Hartlncton , with whom he was In entire
and cordial sympathy. Ho declared that
such action as Huitlneton proposed would
speedily restore the unity of tlio party. The
unionists , ho said , wcro iho real victors at the
Into elections. Chamberlain's remarks were
received with enthusiastic cheers.
Rylauds , Colllngs and Calnc , and Henry
James also spoke in a similar strain.
A vote of thanks to Uartlngton was then
passed by acclammatlon and a resolution was
unanimously adopted that the radical and
whlicunionists should work together and that
the leaders who are prlyy counsellors should
claim seats in the commons on an equality
with BladRfonclto leaders. The meeting
iintlnlroouslvt endorsed the tjonthuont of the
3 pcakc3nJaime reports "say that forty "and
ouiers'tJiat'sixty"were present at the. meeting.

August C. Mr , Allison
moved to take up the final adjournment rcso-
utton.
Mr. Conger opposed the action for the prcv
cnt until the fata of the river and harbor bill
should bo known.
Mr. Ingalls said hothouditthc senate was
being trilled with. Ho submitted that it was
lot appropriate , after the business of both
louses was consldcicd as closed , and when
they were all icady to depart , to bo kept hcio
loing nothing , In expectation , In hope , or
surmise , or conjcctiuo , that at some tlnio In
Iho fuluio they would bo advised what action
might bo taken by the executive on a bill
sent to him for his approval. It was trifling
with the public interests to allow the ad
join nmcnt resolution to remain unacted on.
It was the llrst time in the executive history
that congress had been permitted to adjourn
without the executive coming to the capitol
and availing himself of the usual custom to
ascertain the will of congress.
Mr. Plumb , from the conference committee
on the bill for the repeal of the pre-emption
and timber culture acts , stated that the sen
ate conicices had agreed to yield c\crytliing
\cept the provision that whcio there was an
xllcgatlon of fraud In the entry of land , the
Issue shall bo sent to the courts for adjudica
tion. The house conferees had declined that
and had also declined to sign the conference
report As matters now stood It was claimed
to bo In the power of the commissioner ot the
gencial land ollice to set aside absolutely a
pre-emption under any of these acts , and
practic.Uly without investigation except ono
sided. Agents weie not at work seeking out
technical objections. Tills had produced
u'reat consteination and great Indignation.
The senate conteiees telt that cases involving
tlio title to valuable property ought to bo
tried us all other questions are tried that re
late to piopuity or rights of Indh Iduals. Ho
had thought it proper to make this state
ment
Mr. Harris ( the chair holnc occupied by
Mr. Hawlcy ) otfercd a resolution ot thanks
to Senator bherman for the "ability , courtesy
and impartiality" with which ho had presided -
sided over the senate during the present ses
sion. The resolution w at } put , and the chair
declared the resolution unanimously adopted.
But Mr. Rlddleborger demanded the pres
ence of a quotum , declaring that the resolu
tion ought not to pass , and without a quoium
could not pass.
In this difllculty ( there not being a quo-
lum ) , the senate at 12:10 : took a lecess until
1 o'clock.
Aftei the recess Mr. Hawley , referring lo
Mi. Peck's bill to prevent members of con-
; iesshctlniz as counsel lor subsidized rail
ways , said he had been seeking an opportun
ity to .havo it called and acted on , but other
business had stood In the way. ,
Mr. Beck agieed with Mr. Hawley that it
had been impossible to lm\o action on the
bill this session. Ho thought , however , that
the bill had not had fair play. Ho did not
believe that a single member of the judiciary
committee would vote for the substitute which
it had reported. Ho thoueht that the .com
mittee had sought to make , a builesque of
what ho regarded as a veiy serious mutter.
Ho moved that the second Monday In . De
cember next be fixed for its consideration.
The motion was agreed to.
The house bjlkfor the relief of soldiers of
the Twelfth Michigan volunteer Infalitry
dishonorably discharged , was amended and
passed. . r
Mr. Edmunds reported that the committee
of tlio two houses appointed to wait on the
piesideut to tnfoim him that the two houses
had completed the business of the session
and were ready to adjourn unless ho had
sonin further communication to make , had
performed that duty and wcro informed by
the president that no had no further com
munication to make , and that ho congtalu-
latod tlio two houses on the termination of
their labor * .
Mr. Plumb , from the conference committee
on tlio fortUieatlon bill , reported that the
commltte had been unable to'agree , which
amounted to a failure of the bill. After de-
bat o thu subject was dropped.
Aftei a short delay the moment of ad
journment arrived and the chair said :
"Senators : Before announcing the termin
ation ot the session of the senate , I beg leave
to return to each of you my grateful thanks
for your uniform couitesy and kindness tome
mo as jour presiding olllcer , and especi.illy
for the resolution of to-day in which you
have expiesscd your appioval. This session
has been distinguished by the creat number
and variety of subjects which have been con
sidered , and by a marked absence of political
controversies. The varied needs and aims
of the rapidly growing country have occu
pied nioro of the time of the senate. The
shoit recess will enable you to greet your
constituents , and I hope and trust that 6ach
of : j on will leturn next December with renewed - .
newed health and strength to yourlmpoitant
duties. In puisuanco of the resolution of the
two houses of congress , I now declare ths |

A hurried leave-taking among the senators
and employes took place and half an hour
later the chamber uas empty.

this proposition was not acceptable to the

A rtesitnio or Legislation.
WASHINGTON , Augusts. Tlio first session
of the forty-ninth congress , which ended
to-day , began on Mond.iy , December 2 , 1835 ,
and covered a period of seven months and
twenty-eight days , or 3il days , oxclustvo of
Sundays. Of this tlmo the senate was In ses
sion 104 dnys and the house 185 days. Dur
ing that tlmo there were Introduced In tha
two houses 1,203 ! ) measure ? , of which 10,014
were house bills and 214 house joint resolu
tions and 3,801 bills and KJ joint resolutions
of the senate. The measures pioposed
for enactment Into law exceeded In number
by 2,049 those Introduced at the llrst session
of the forty-nlghtli congress , which set for
seven months and four days , or 105 days of
actual working time , Tlu-y cocrcd all sorts
of subjects , from the payment of tlio laborer
at the capltol for extra sen Ices , to the com
plex questions of tariff legislation and legis
lation with respect to thn national finances.
Of the entire number , compaiatlvely few

portance. The greater number wcro meas
ures of a private iiatui cor of merely local
Importance , such as relief and pension bills ,
bills for the erection of public buildings , for
bridging rivers , for granting right of way to
railroads through inllltaiy or Indian reserva
tions , for the removing ot political disabili
ties , for changing Judicial districts , for estab-
llshlngnew land olilce ; , for chancing names
of location or increasing capital stock of na
tional banks , for printing public documents ,
etc. , etc.
A \cry small percentage of the whole num
ber of bills'Introduced of either a general or
private nature became laws. _ A compara- '
lively small number succeeded In getting
through the committees to which they were
refcritd and reaching the calendars of their
respective houses. Some secured passage in
the house in which they originated but
failed of action In the other -branch , and a
very largo number still remain unconsldcred
oy the committees to which they were ro-
icrred. The total number of measures that
passed both houses was 1,101 , being 241.en - ,
nto bills and KO bills which oiiglnatcd In tho'
house. Of this total , SCO became laws with
tbo president's approval ; 181 became laws by
limitation , tlio president falling cither to ap
prove or disapprove them within ton dajs
nfter their presentation to liim ; 113 wcro ve
toed , end ono failed by re.ison ot adjourn
ment without the oresldi'iit's approval.
Of the now laws , 740 were house mcasuics
and 241 senate measures. The laws tnat be
come such by limitation were , with two ex
