* v < coyozxag , SENATE. Cameron ( Pa. ) celled up the bill Authorizing a retiredi list for privates and noncommissioned sioned officers of the United States army who - have served thirty years or upward. After debate tlic'lilll pa.sed-87 to 5. The senate then , pawed tbe bill granting a pension of $2.000 to Margaret C. Ilulplne. , van \\yck moved an amendment to cue of the private pension bills , providing that all soldiers' widows or minor children WHO , by the existing Jaw. are or may become entitled to 88 per month , shall in future receive $12 per month. Agreed to yeas 80 , nays 12. Senator Pendleton , from the committee on foreign relations , reported favorably his bill lor the return of $583,4000 to the Chinese gov ernment as the sum duo that government from the Chinese Indemnity fund. IIOU8B. On motion a bill was passed providing for the appraisement and sale of lots at Peru , Iowa. At five o'clock , while the bouse was In com mittee ot the whole on the- river and harbor bill , Townshend moved that the committee rise. He wished to move that the house ad journ , having been advised that It was the in tention of the friends of the river and harbor bill to continue this legislative day throughout Monday and thus crowd out the regular ap propriation blim. The motion was lost Sub sequently it appearing there was no quorum , the committee rose and the house adjourned. SENATE. Van "Wyck received unanimous consent for thcconsidci tlon of the house bill to prevent the unlawful enclosure of public lands , better known as tl fencing bill. The amendment of the senate committee was concurred in. The bill went over. The pension appropriation bill was then taken up. A long discussion then ensued re garding the Interpretation of the senate rule forbidding the proposing of general legislation on appropriation bills. Ingalla wanted the senate to establish a precedent that would enable senators to offer amendment to such general legislation as the house might put on an appropriation bill. Thp proposition to establish a' new precedent was defeated. DOUSE. The house went Into the committee of the whole on the postofllce appropriation bill. Towusbcnd explained the provisions of the ' bill and sold it was the most important postal i' appropriation "bill ever reported to congress. Herr opposed the provisions of the bill which hanged toe method of compensating railroads for mall transportation. Instead ot resulting in a saving of u million and a half to the gov ernment , as stated by Towusiiend , It would , In Horr's opinion , increase tbe compensation to railroad companies and put an excess into the pockets of roads which already get large amounts. * Pending further debate tbe committee rose and the house adjourned. SEXATE. The chair laid before the senate a memorial in the form of a joint resolution from the legislature of Dakota , urging a division of the territory and the admission of Us southern portion as a state. Tbe consideration of the bill to prevent the unlawful occupancv of public lands was re sumed. Tliis is the bill known as the anti- fencing bill. It was passed with slight amend- ments. The consideration of the pension appropria tion bill was continued by the senate. The amendments were concurred in except that of Inalls. The bill was then passed substantially as It came from the senate committee. HOUSE. Phelps , from the committee on foreign affairs , reported back the resolution requesting of the president the personal correspondence in the hands of the government relating to the case o C. A. Vanberken , an American citizen Imprisoned at Port auPrlnce , Haytl. Adopted. The house then considered the postoffice ap- propriUon hill , but without action the com- mitteearosc and the house adjourned. SENATE. In the senate on the llth , Manderson pr sentcd as a memorial a joint resolution from the legislature of Nebraska urging congress to pass the bill for the relief of the settlers on the St. Joseph and Denver City railroad lands. Referred. At five minutes before 13 o'clock a message was received announcing that the house would , at 12 o'clock , be ready to receive the senate , that , in joint convention , both houses may count the electoral vote. The chair announced that the concurrent resolutions providing for a joint convention would now b3 executed , and the senators , headed by the president pro teni. and the sec retary of'the senate , preceded by the sergeant- atarmsproceeded to the-house of representa- t lives. At 1:25 p. m. the senators returned to the senate chamber , and the president pro tern. 1 having resumed the chair , the tellers on be half of the senate appeared , and In their be half Hoar reported tue Jesuit of the electoral count. When the report was completed the president ot tbe senate repeated , verbatim , the closing sentence of tue announcement , made by him in tbe house relative to the de claration of the vote. . i A resolution offered by Jngalls , declaring that the senntc tloesnot assent to Edmunds' declaration , .vent over until to-morrow , as did. i a resolution by Hoar.approving his course. HOUSE. * At precisely 12 o'clock the senate of the United Statt * was announced , and , headed by Mr. Edmnm s and the officers of that body , the'senators filed in and took the first two rows of seats , wh.ch had been previously prepared for them , the president of the senate seating himself by Acting Speaker Blackburn , i Edmunds , in calling tbe assembly to order , said : "Tne two houses of congress have met In pursuance to the constitution and laws and a concurrent resolution for the purpose of ex- ecu ing the duty required by the constitution and laws In t .e matter of counting the elec toral vote for-president and vice-president of the United States , < ast by the electors of the several states , for the term commtncing the ith of March , 1SS3. " The certificates having all been examined and announced , the presiding officer of the senate announced that Grover Cleveland and Thomas A. Hendricks have received a major ity of the electoral votes for the respective of fices of president and vice-president of the United States. The declaration , he said , was only made as a public statement in th'e pres ence of the two houses of congress , and not as "possessing any authority of law to declare any legal condition whalever. At the clcsi of Edmunds' announcement ' that Cleveland and Hendricks bad received , apparently , a majority cf the ballots , the im mense audience broke Into applause and cheers , which the presiding officer attempted to suppress , but with little success. A concurrent resolution was adopted that three representatives and two senators be ap pointed to wait on Cleveland and Hendricks and notify them that they have been duly sleeted. I SENATE. The senate passed the joint resolution an- } thorizlng the president to return to the gov ernment of Great Britain the steamer "Alert , " , with the thanks of the United Spates. ' r VanWyck asked unanimous consent that the bill to forfeit the Texas Pacific land grant be restored to its place among the special orders. Acceded to. The bill repealing the pre-emption and tim ber culture laws was taken up , when Van Wyck submitted a joint resolution making it anlawful for railroad companies to attempt to trade in any portion of their land grant while ihe bill for the forfeiture of the same is pend ing In congress , or before a patent shall have aeen Issued , and makinar the person violating .bis provision subject tc a fine not exceeding 61,000 or Imprisonment for not more than one year. Referred to the committee on public lauds. The bill then passed yeas 28 , nays 20. . The army appropriation bill was passed. HOUSE. Thompson called up the bill amending the Pacific railroad act so as to authorize the con struction of a road from Sioux City , Iowa , tea a point on the Union Pacific nest of the 100th meridian. Pending consideration the nour allowed un der tie special rule expired aud nu further iction was taken. Tbeliouse then considered , without definite ictioc , the ixfetoflu-e apj r jpriat on bill. * & tveniug session was held , di-.voted to a discussion of the : parajapu aliowingadditional compensation for transportation of ocean mail in American steamships. . * . * t Pending" discussion the committee rose and the bouse took a reee'fl ttntil to-morrow. SEXATB. The Texas and Pacific land forfeiture bill and the pending special order was placed be fore tbu senate. Blair asked unanimous consent to take p the anti-foreign contract labor bill. Van Wjek declined to yield. Van Wyck said the senate ana country understood the nature of the bill. He did not wish to put it in further peril. It bad been In peril already. It had been displaced by taking up another bill whose principal feature made it Impossible to get the concurrence of the other house. Tbe principal features of this forfeiture bill were so plain that , if Van Wvck might bo allowed , be would say they had b jn passed by the house of representatives almost unani mously. , Blair then moved that the senate proceed with tbe labor bill. Carried by a vote of 80 to 19. Considerable debate ensued , and &e sen ate , without action , adjourned. The house went into committee of the whole , on the postoffice appropriation bill. The com mittee , by a vote of 105 to 97. struck out tbe paragraph in the postofflce bill granting to American-steamships additional compensation for transporting malls. The announcement that the paragraph bad been stricken out was greeted with loud ap plause on the democratic .side. Herr gave notice that he would demand a yea' and nay vote in the house. Tbe committee arose and the previous ques tion on the bill. POLITICAL NOTES. Senator Vest , of Missouri , is described as "a little fellow with a fat waistcoat" He has a blond head and a fierce moustache ol a sandy white. " t The senate , in executive session recently , conflimed among : others the pending : nomina tion of William E. Curtis , of Illinois , to bo secretary of tbe Central and South America commission. Senator Chase , of Bhode Island , is a typical Quaker in dress and speech and believes In tbo reign of peace to such an extent that h ° will not nominate candidates for West Point nor Annapolis , nor vote for military appro priation bills. In the district court at Chicago during the trial'of Mackin and others for election frauds County Clerk Ityan testified that the vault in which the ballots were kept was dally open to forty or more , of his clerks , the employes of the county treasurer , the abstract wrlterc , ! the county commissioners and certain attor neys. General Chetlain jsworo that prior to the nomination of Senator Leman there wes sufficient bad feeling among tbe republicans to cause feat - that ( split tickets would be in circulation at the polls. At a meeting'of the committee on payment of pension oounty and'back pay , held in Washington , Comstock , chief of the western division , stated ho was instructed during the recent campaign , by Commissioner Dudley , to extend to Grubbs , of Indiana , the same priv ileges accorded congressmen in presenting pensions. Grubbs was a republican candi date for congressman from tbe Fifth district of that state , and was the opponent of Repre sentative Matson , the democratic canBWate. At the New York City Union club reception to United States Senator-elect William 31- Evarts , Judge Davis presided and E. B. Bins' * dale made an address in behalf of the club Judge Davis presented Evarts , who was greeted with great applause. Mr. Evarts said the occasion marked something more than honor to himself. Ho then referred to the record of the republican party and said that the republicans in New York state could noc conceal the fact that the center of the array of tbe great republican party had been pierced on the part of entrusted republicans. FOREIGN NOTES. It has been decided to take no steps looking to call out the reserves till after parliament assembles. The charge i * made that France has estab lished a protectorate over land * on the west coast of Africa which belong to Spain. A dispatch from Korti says Colonel Sir Hed- vers Buller will probably attack Metomnoh about the 15th. The rebels ore taking no ag gressive steps. The English government has decided to adopt more stringent rules regulating admis sion of visitors to their deliberations. Mem bers of parliament in tbe future will not be allowed to introduce strangers into the gal leries and lobbies. The recent dynamite explosion in London demonstrated the fact that under existing rules governing admission of strangers to the gal cries and lobbies it would be an easy matter for dynamiters to convey'explo&ives into the building during the session of parliament and cause the death of many of Its members. THE A8YX.UJK HORROR. Ticenty-eight Inmates Believed to Have Per ished in tlie Flames. A Philadelphia dispatch says of the fire In the almshouse in that city that of eighty-four lunatics confined many are miesing , but it is thought that most of them wandered away. Several human bodies can be seen in the turning-wreck in the cellar. It is now thought twenty-eight perished. That number of violent - lent patients > rcre locked In the cells on the third floor ami could not be reached. There seems no doubt they are lost , and the remains .ire among the ruin' . Dunngthc night many * Insane person"-were found wandering iudif- terent parts i the city , some nearly naked. The poor ere ures generally seemed unable to understai the situation , and in some ases begged their captors piteously not to throw them iato the river. The others took it as a good j-ke and laughed gleefully when * the fire was mentioned. One man came run ning down t e street early this morning with manacle attached to his wrists and feet , links of ihe ci ain dangling from them. He bricked and 'aughed and struck righc and eft among tbo 1 Tightened people. Ic was sound necessary to.knock him down before : -.e could ; be secured. Another caused a pan o in a street car by runn n r in half-clad witu a race scorched and blackened. He sank cow ering in tbe corner. T.ie report that the 'reets were full of escaped lunatics caussd mm h alarm in We it Philadelphia , and strang ers looked upon each other with much dis trust. LATEK. After a thorough search ttwHlms- house authorities are convinced time the eighteen burne J and suffocated maniacs , all of whom occupied cells on the third floor uC tbe buildirg. arc all that per -bed , and that * : he other 606 inmates were rescued and are row in custody in other parts of the build- Img. . , ' 8. C. & 8.f. LAIfD GRAXT. "Urging Action Upon the Sill to Forfeit Cer tain Lands. A Washington special says that Dr. H. M. Hamblin. secretary oL the squatters'union of O'Brien county , Iowa , has arrived there to urge upon tbe senate the necessity of acting speedily1 upon the bill to forfeit the land grant of the Sioux City and St. Paul road. Dr. Hamblin says there are 500 families of vari ous nationalities located upon tbe 85.0CO acres of the unearned grant. The eettlera were induced to go to that section by the letter of Secretary Teller of March , 1833. ( published In the report of the secretary of btate'for lowu which said that the tract was unearned. ' 6y entered on It. expecting that it would i evert to tbe government.be spee ily opoi xl to. settlement , and that they would , as squ tiers , bavo tbo flna claim un der the home esd and pre-emption acts. The railroad comi' ny has never ventured to oust them , as , in a suit of ejectment , it would be tequired to prove its own title , which , ot coutte. it could not do. Dr. Hamblin saj that n'l that section of Iowa is In a ferment over it. . , OUR UNKNOWN NOETH. ' - , , r 'Jf t f * ' * * * - + & * * rr > ' Alaska's Secret * Being : Revealed by Constant If csearcli. There arc Indications that our north ern possessions , which have heretofore been practically a sealed book to the people of this country , are to become better known to us. The appointment of territorial officers for Alaska seems to have already stimulated research and adventure in that hitherto unknown country , and there are very likely to be some very interesting , if not startling , developments. A telegram received here from the commander of one of the revenue vessels in those waters states that his vessel has just returned from some explorations in what have been hitherto almost unknown regions of Alaska , and that the discoveries are of a very valuable and interesting nature. A letter just received from San Francisco - : cisco gives gives some particulars of of the arrival of Captain Healey there from a tour with a revenue vessel in that section. He rescued a party of starving miners and the crew of a wrecked whaler far at the north , saving ninety-eight per sons from a horrible death. He sent a boat a distance of three hundred and fifty miles up the Kowgat river , a stream hitherto little explored , obtain ing some very valuable information about the country and tbe people , gath ering valuable specimens of minerals , plants and birds. He explored and photographed a large and valuable island near Bogastoff , captured and de stroyed a lot of liquor which whalers and illicit trailers were preparing to sell to the natives and finally made a trip far north to rescue the crew mentioned , encountering ice worse * than any that Schley found in his trip north , and in spite of the fact that he was twenly- three days in an almost constant fog , he dropped anchor within a few rods of the spot he had started to make on hearing of the suffering crew. It is ex pected that between the stimulated spirit of exploration that the appoint ment of these territorial officers has awakened , and the reports of these officers themselves , the people of this country will get within the next few months more information' about * ' 's distant country than they ever had to- fore. Cincinnati Times-Star. Counterfeiting a Taluable Article. The publisher of the Madison County Eeeord writes from Huntsville , Ark. , as to the eftect of Brown's Iron Bitters on his wife. Mr. Daugherty says : "My wife has been using the bitters for some months ; the effect in-her case is re markable. " He also writes that owing to counterfeits and imitations it was difficult to get the genuine article. That difficulty has now been remedied ; imi tators have been exposed and put to flight. There , as elsewhere , Brown's Iron Bitters can be had of all the re spectable druggists at a dollar a bottle. At the Kink. "And don't you skate , little girl ? " he asked , as he sat down beside her. "Oh , no sir. " "But you can learn. " "I guess I could , but I don't want to. " "And do you come here just to watch the skaters ? " "Oh , no ; I come to watch Mrs. R. " "Who's she ? " "She's papa's second wife. He don't want her to come , but she will do it. " "And why do you watch her ? " "Well , papa wanted her to promise that she wouldn't lean on anybody when she was skating with 'em , and that she wouldn't flirt when she was resting , but she wouldn't promise , and so I came to watch her. These short marks are when she leans , and these long ones when she flirts. "And you show them all to your father ? " "Yes , and he dates them and puts them away , and by-and-by we'll have enough to get a divorce on and marry somebody who can't skate. " Detroit Free Press. THE MARKETS. OMAHA.

' Clavelnnd (0. ( ) Herald. Yesterday and the day before we cop ied into our columns from the Roches ter ( N. Y. ) Democrat and Chronicle a remarkable statement , made by J. B. Henion , M. D.f a gentleman. who is well known in this city. In that arti cle Dr. Henion recounted a wonderful experience which befell him , and the next day we published from the same paper a second article , giving : an ac count of the "Excitement in Roches ter , " caused by Dr. Henion's state ment It is doubtful if any two arti cles were ever published which caused greater commotion both among profes sional people and laymen. _ Since the publication of these two ar ticles , having been besieged with let ters of inquiry , we sent a communica tion to Dr. Henion and also one to H. H. Warner & Co. , asking if any addi tional proof could be given to us as to the validity of the statements pub lished. In answer thereto we have received the following letters , which add interest to the entire subject and verify every statement hitherto made : . ROCHESTER , N. Y. GENTLEMEN : Your favor is received. The published statement , over my sig nature , to which you refer is true in every respect , and I owe my life and present health wholly to .the power of Warner's Safe Cure , which snatched me from the very brink of the grave. It is not surprising that people should question the statement I made , for my recovery was as great a marvel to my self , as to my physicians , and friends. * * * J. B. HENION , M. D. ROCHESTER , N. Y. , Jan. 21. SIRS : Acknowledging your favor duly received , we would say : The best proof we can give you "that the statements made by Dr. Henion are en tirely true , and would not have bee a published unless strictly so , is the fol lowing testimonial from the best citi zens of Rochester , and a card publish ed by Rev. Dr. Foote , which you are at liberty to use if you wish. H. H. WARNER & Co. To Wliom it may Concern : In the Rochester Democrat and Chron icle of December 31 there appeared a statement in the form of a card from Dr. J. B. Henion , of this city , recount ing his remarkable recovery from Bright's disease of the kidneys , after several doctors of prominence had § iven him up , by the use of Warner's afe Cure. We are personally or by reputation acquainted with Dr. Henion , and we believe he would publish no statement not literally true. We are also personally or by reputation well acquainted with Hv H. Warner & Co. , proprietor of that remedy , whose com- merciarand personal standing in this community are of the highest order , and we believe that they would not publish any statements which were not literally and strictly true in every par ticular.

ROWLEY , ( ex-County Judge , Monroe Co. ) JOHN VAN VOORHIS , ( ex-Member of Congress. ) Tothe Editor of the Living ChurcJi , Chicago , Itt There was published in the Rochester Democrat anil Chronicle of the 31st of December , a statement made by J. B. Henion , M. D. , narrating how he had been cured of Bright's disease of the kidneys , almost in its last stages , by the use of Warner's Safe Cure. I was referred to in that statement , as having recommended and urged Dr. Henion to try the remedy , which he did , and was cured. The statement of Dr. Henion is true , so far as it concerns myself , and I believe it to be true in all other respects. He was a parishioner of mine and I visited him in his sickness. I urged him to take the medicine and would do the same again to any one who was troubled with a disease of the kidneys and liver. ISRAEL FOOTE , ( D. D. ) , ( Late ) Rector of St. Paul's Episcopal Church , Rochester , N. N. Tears of a Baby. I think there is no sadder sight on earth than the tears of a baby. To see the little round face that looks as if it were only made for laughing , all twisted up in a snarl of puckers , the bright eyes squinted out of sight , and great , real tears coursing down the pudgy cheeks , is enough to make a stoic weep in sym pathy. Itis as if the man in the moon were crying. I knew an English father who , whenever one of his babies and there was a host of them cried , would say in tones of comical distress , "he'd rather see a five-pun note than one of those tears , any day , " and it seemed to those little ones to be the heighth of devotion and self-denial on his part. Mrs. Paddock , a writer of Salt Lake City , tells a pathetie story of a broken hearted wife whose first baby never cried aloud but wept in silence all the time. Sleeping or waking , the tears flowed from its eyes , and in a few weeks it died , its mother said , of a broken heart It had shed all the tears its mother had repressed before its birtb , and its weeping face was a symbol of the face of Utah. In antithesis to these sad facts is a memory we nearly all can conjure up of some fat , rascally baby who would cry and cry , and cry until every member of the family was en listed in his cause , when he would sud denly unbutton his eyes and lo ! not a tear would be there , It had been a crocodile bawl of the driest grief.
