; The President called an extra ses
sion of Congress that some important
legislation for the honor , safety , and
general good of the country , might be
accomplished ; but so far and Con
gress has been in session over two
weeks nothing has-been done but
holding Bourbon-intrigues and wran
gling overthe spoils of office. . -

'like Micawber are always waiting for
something to turn up go into exclu

then adjourn ; a democratic caucus
immediately follows the adjournment.
don't know what to dp-witkCongress
now they have it ; the best mode of
legislating to their several interests
for it must be remembered that the
Northern Democrat is one kind of a
fellow , and the Southern rebel anoth"
er kind of a man is a matter hard to
settle upon. These daily caucuses
held at the capitol , and nightly cau
cuses , which meet here and there and
everywhere , are very unsettlingvery ,
It is not lo be expected , in fact it is
not in the nature of things , that the
new Senate shouli hold its imposing
honors easy at first things are man-
rrawlswarkly just nowbut ; bye
and bye the country will be aston1
ished to see how lightly , very lightly ,
honors and the affairs of government ,
will be handled.
\ who has held sway over the Democrats
so long , is now having a hard tussle
to keep his usurpers at bay ; there are
so many ambitious aspirants for the
throne , each one attended by a well
equipped army of followers , that there
is danger of the old King losing his
power : but he is a daring plucky old
General , and whenever he unfurls his
red flag to the breeze , a bugle sound is
heard and all instantly "rightabout
face ! " He is old fashioned in his ideas
as well as personal habits , and does
not like to have the younger members
of his party rush in headlong with
their new-fangled notions of law , and
by whom the country is to be gov
erned. It is very amusing to see him
eyeing the rash youths from under his
heavy gray eyebrows ; he looks at
them askance and deliberately takes
out of his pants pocket a silver snuff
box , taps it affectionally , taking out a
pinch for himself then passes the
box around , a courtesy respectfully
considered by those so honored
which sets the younger ones to sneez
ing tremendously.
now , and no doubt all the laws made
by Congress since the rebellion will
be repealed and new ones made to suit
the party in power. There are wild
notions entertained by some of the
sanguine sons of the sunny land ; idle
dreams of absolute power again
power to buy and sell human flesh !
I heard one of these vigorous minded
"gentlemen of the South" say : "Wo
are getting back our power again.
The time is not'far distant when Jeff.
Davis will occupy a seat in the United
I.- States Senate , and we shall command
our slaves once more. "
certainly presents a very sprightly ap
pearance , and a very good looking
body of men to be sure. If they
would only behave as well as they
look ( no doubt they all this advice
when they left home ) , we should have
nothing -complain of ; but it isn't
their nature to behave , you know.
There is your new member , Mr. Val
entine , ( is he as romantic as his name ? )
The girls call him pretty , and he is in
great .favor with the ladies at the
hotel a sure thing of his success. His
attitude during prayer is very devout
and respectful. "Forgive our tres
passes as we forgive those who trespass
against us , " says the chaplain of the
Bouse , and down goes Valentine's
head. This is good behaviour , very ,
and a good attitude to strike for the
benefit of the lookersonin the galleries
especially the ladies whom Mr.
Valentine delights to please. He
thinks himself lucky in getting a good
seat. It is a rather good site , "a fair-
to-middling" one , with a good com
mand of the Speaker's desk , and if he
he is an eloquent , gifted debater with
a loud tongue , Tie may possibly suc
ceed in catching the near-sighted
Speaker's eve , and thereby obtain the
floor. It is"a dreadful undertaking
( that's just what it is ) for a new mem
ber to try to get the floor , in other
words to try and get a word in edge
wise. Tha new member with a burn
ing desire to make a speech , knowing
his dear constituents from afar will
hear and applaud , tremblingly lifts
himself out of his seats with his finger
pointing toward the Speaker , and his
face moist with anxiety , calls , "Mr.
Speaker 1 Mr. Speaker 11 Mr. Speak
er ! 1 1" But Mr. Speaker who seems
to be deaf to maiden speeches from
the Republican side of the House
does not hear , and the new member ,
often standing fcr ten or fifteen min
utes , sinks into his chair rather limp.
Peace follows.

field last Saturday is being carried on
with great fury on both sides. One
is reminded of the amnesty debates so
great is the excitement , only now the
feeling seems to bo more revolutionary.
During Garfield's speech I presume
you all have read it in this there was
great excitement on the floor , the Re
publicans frequently applauding ; and
in the gallanes which were densely
crowded suppressed applause quivered
like the sea at the coming of a grand
storm. The power of Garfield's
speeches lie as much in his eloquent
manner of speaking as in the * word.
He impresses his hearers ATitE "having
perfect knowledge and control of the
subject before him , * * & befug
perfectly , satisfied with his own
ability td command. Garfield fully
believes in himself ! His self-con
sciousness is at times' too striking and
the force of his speaking is lost thereby
byit ; is impossible to forget that
General Garfield is before you , no
matter how interested you may be in
what ho says. Being a large , finely
framed man , with a handsome pres
ence , he commands attention at once.
He speaks deliberately , clearly artjcu-
lating his well-chosen words in a-loud
tone , distinctly heard in every part of
the House. At times his voice- has a
blatant sound , a sort of flat preaching
sound , but this is not frequent , I am
glad to say. Ho used to be a Metho
dist preacher , I believe. It didn't
take long for the ' 'heavenly tones" to
die out in Congress.

trial in the lowest possible manner ;
his cross-examinations of Mr * . Oliver

facts of the case may have been , Ben
Butler has been cunning enough ,
backed by the power of money and
the house of Cameron-Sherman , to
win without resorting to the basest
vulgarity. Ben Butler is unscrupu
lous in his dealings with politics and

am sure the female suffragists , who

The remarkable movement of color
ed people from Ihe Sonth- the West
is exciting much attention here , as
well as considerable alarm in the South.
It is due to two causes cheating the
blacks as laborers out of their earn
ing , and bull-dozing them as citizens
out of their right to a free ballot. At
present , the most marked phases of
this movement are seen in Mississippi ,
Louisiana , and South Carolina. Let
ters from Tennessee , especially from
the southern and western counties , in
dicate its progress there. In South
Carolina , while there has been no vis
ible movement made yet , there is a
strongly organized movement on foot
among the better classes of the colored
people. For the last four years there
has been a marked desire among the
most enterprising negroes in the black
counties of Georgia to get away to
Texas. So extensive has this been ,
that the Georgia legislature has pro
hibited agents from inducing laborers
to leave the State. Alabama has not
yet fallen into line as far as heard
from. In South Carolina Messrs.
Rainey , Cain , Smalls , Nash , and most
of the colored leaders , are in sympa
thy with the emigration scheme. In
Louisiana , Pinchback , Menard , and
others support it. Senator Bruce lends
it his countenance in Mississippi. It
is quite probable that the Nashville
convention will take some action in the
same line by appointing an executive
committee to gather information and
look after the whole matter.
Perhaps the most practical action
yet had is seen in the feeling mani
fested by the great railroad enterprises
now in progress in the West toward
this laboring element. Jay Gould ,
for the Union Pacific , has , it is report
ed , recently intimated a desire to em
ploy 1,000 colored men on favorable
terms on the Utah Ceutral road. Mr.
Huntington , for the Central and
Southern Pacific roads , will give em
ployment this fall in Arizona to 1,000
men. Ex-Senator Patterson , who is
now in the service of the Southern
Pacific road , and will reside in Tucson
hereafter , has taken this matter in
hand in conjunction with leading col
ored Republicans of his former
State. It is believed that Arizona
will be able to find emplopment for
several thousand of these people. The
country is well adapted to them , and
the people will be very glad to re-
pla'ce the Chinese , who are now going
there , with American colored laborers.
The colored people will do well , with
out doubt , in New Mexico and Arizo
na. The Indian Territory , if open to
settlement , would afford available
homes for thousands. There are near
ly 12,000 people of color , formerly
their slaves , citizens of or residents
in the various Indian nations. The
AtchUon , Topeka and Santa Fe
Railroad has also indicated a purpose
to femploy in New Mexico a
large force of colored laborers. The
Pacific Railroad has agreed to carry
colored emigrants from. Omaha , who
may be going to Southern California
and Arizona , if they arrive in bodies
at Omaha , at the rate of 1 cent per
mile , or thereabout , which would make
the cost of the whole journey from the
Missouri River to Maricopa Wellsthe
terminus until next winter of the
Southern Pacific , not over 830. There
is a decided inclination at the Califor
nia end of the transcontinental roads
to encourage emigration thither , and
to that end fares are likely to be
largely reduced , and the second class
accommodations largely increased.

CAPETOWN , March 25via Cape Fort
Vincent. A convoy of supplies pro
ceeding from Derby to Lumburg , es
corted by 104 men of the Eighteenth
regiment , was attacked at daybreak
March 12th on the banks of Intombe
river by 4,000 Zulus under Unbeline.
Owing to previous alarm the British
were under arms , but were over
whelmed by the enormously superior
force of the enemy. Captain Moriar-
ty aud forty _ men were killed and
twenty are missing. The fate of the
wagon drivers is unknown.
Lieutenant Harward with
forty men succeeded in
in reaching Luneborg. One hundred
and fifty men of the Eightienth regi
ment subsequently proceeded to the
scene of the fighting , recovered a
quantity of rockets and ammunition
and burled the dead. Twenty wagons
containing supplies were lost. A re
lief column for Ekowe will start
March 26th. A party of volunteers
have visited the battle field of Jaan-
dula and found that the Zulus had
left 100 wagons there but had re
moved the guns and ammunition.
LONDON , April 8. The Standard's
dispatch from Oape Town says the
Convoy fromDerby was obliged to en
camp on the banks of the Intombus
river , as it was too full to cross. Lt.
Harward and survivors were encamp
ed on the Luneburg side of the river.
Although there had been some pre
vious glarms the surprise was complete.
The sentry only saw the Zulus when
they were within fifteen paces.
Lieut. Harvard's men poured a steady
fire across the river. The Zulus lost
heavily but were undaunted. Only
fifteen of Capt. Moriarity's men es
caped across the river. They were
sleeping in wagons when attacked.
The sentry was the only one who had
time to fire. The scene of the sur
prise is a hollow surrounded by long
grass and weeds. One gun which the
Zulus had not removed has since been
recovered. The relief column for
Ekowe number 5,000 men.
; LONDON , April 8. A dispatch from
Capetown says much sickness is re
ported in Col Pearson's , command at
Ekowo and provisions are getting very
scarce. There is reason to believe
20,000 Zulus are posted near Ekowe.
A dispatch to The Times from Dur
ban says the soldiers reported as miss
ing at the disaster on the Intombo
were probably drowned. The sur
prise occured during a dense past.

WASHINGTON , April 9 , 5 a. m. The
movement of Ohio Democrats here to
secure an alliance with the Green
backers for the fall campaign has a
much wider significance than a mere
effort to carry Ohio. It was conceived
by the friends of Senator Thurman
and in his interest for the Presidency
as against Senator Bayard and the
Eastern hard-money wing of the party.
I is intended that Thurman shall be
the most prominent speaker in the next
campaign as a Presidential candidate.
Those who are at worK" in the move-
movement believe that by this condi
tion they can forestall the action of
eastern Democrats , and compel them
to yield to Western Democratic ideas

Leading Greenbackers here say
there will be no coalition in Ohio.
They say the Thurman men have
already approached them here , and
have offered to allow them to make
platform in Ohio , and to
chooaa all offices on the ticket except
that of Governor. These offers they
have rejected * . They have been sold
out by Democrats here and elsewhere ,
and they believe they have strength
nough to whip both parties.
It is competent for any person now
desiring to invest in four per cent
bonds , who prefers to obtain them
from Government rather than a
bank to get them directly from
the Treasury through the purchase of

The law authorizing the refunding
certificates says distinctly that they
are convertible at any time with ac
crued interest into 4 per cent , bonds

Mr. Fort submitted an amendment
providing that hereafter when legal
tender treasury notes are reissued they
shall be so reissued in the same de
nominations as originally issued.
Mr. Garfield raised a point of order
that the amendment changed the ex
isting law and was not in the interest
of economy , which point of order was
sustained bo the chairman ( Mills ) and
the amendment was ruled out.
After finishing consideration of sixty
.pages of the bill the committee TOSO

The Dilemma in Which

of the Army Bill.
Professor Kiley's Successor
Yellow Jack ,
Washington Special to the Globe-Democrat.
Representatives Atkins and - Blackburn
burn had a conference with Speaker
Randall Monday on the Chairmanship
of the Committee on Appropriations.
Usage would entitle Mr. Blackburn to
and Mr. Randall is not indifferent to
this fact , but as Mr. Atkins is desir
ous of remaining chairman of the com
mittee , there is no alternative but to
displace Mr. Atkins or displease Mr.
Blackburn Mr. Blackburn is persist
ent , and ta he thinks the chairman
ship of the committee will strengthen
his chances for the Speakorship of the
next Congress. The Speaker favors
Mr. Atkins , and will not displace him
without his consent. The action of
Mr. Blackburn has led the Speaker to
return the name of
to the chairmanship of banking and
currency , this chairmanship having
been tendered to Mr. Blackburn , and
Mr. Buckner having been placed at
the head of public lands. The speaker
is also having much trouble with the
committee on commerce His wish is
to make this committee one that will
look after the important interests of
all sections , and keep the appropria
tions down to a minimum figure for
only important works. Mr. Clardy , '
of St. Louis , will take the place of Mr.
Among the new rules which the
House Committee on Rules have
agreed to report is one requiring a
three-fourths , instead of a two-thirds
vote to suspend the rules , and pass
an appropriation bill. The purpose
of this to put a check on the rive * and
h&rbor bill , which is usually p&sten
under a suspension. The proposition
will bo strongly opposed in the H use ,
MS members are not willing to resign
the tun-thirds rule.
Tiiere has been agrett desire to
know how the debate would be con
ducted in the Senate this week on the
army bill , and prominent Senators
are of the opinion that it will List a
luiigtime. . Messrs. "Voorhees , Me
D maid , VVhyte , B-tyard and others on
the Democnttic aide have prepared
elaborate Sjieechea lu favor of the pn > -
po ed IngisLition , while Republicans
like Messrs. Conkling , Edmunds aud
Hoar have speeches on the other
Side. There is uo previous question
in the Senate and
but the IIMJ .rity can sit it out , and
they say if the debate runs till Satur
day th v will do that and force a vote ,

Theme.nDeia nf thu National Board
of Hexlih now in sesainn , have agreed
to rec > nimeud a bLl establishing a
riiiid quarantine , foreign and inland ,
and authorizing its enforcement by
Federal authority. Jt is recommend
ed that at rivdr cities and other points
where the epidemic prevails to exer
cise the most rigid surveillance nf ves
sels. Althougk three members of the
Board favor the refrigerating plan of
preventing the importation of the
germ of the yellow fever , the remain
ing nine are opposed to it. The ex
perience of United States
which have been sent from the tropics
to the extreme northern ration dur
ing the winter to subject them to the
freezing process , upon their return to
the tropics have suffered an immediate
revival of the epidemic. The United
States ships Plymouth and Tennessee
are practical instances of this , and are
advanced as an argument against the
refrigerating process , and will doubt
less lead to the defeat of the bill pend
ing in Congress. The Southern Sena
tors and Representatives still insist
upon legislation on the yellow fever
and cholera epidemics before the pres
ent session adjourns.
