WASHINGTON , November G , 1 a. ro.
-Something of a sensation was cre-
' -1 at thecaphal yesterday by o.re-
port that Gen , B. F. Butler , while at
the supreme couit had said the re
vised and corrected vote In New York
would show a majority for ILmcock.
Two employes of the house stated th 1
they had heard Gen. Bullcr'make the
assertion , and also that the General
said be had jnat bet BIX hundred dollars
lars that Hancok would be the ucit
president The eiollement was in
creased by a report th t John Kelly
had telegraphed John E. Norris not
to give up bets on New York , aa the
result was nndecided. Investigation
by a reporter made it probible that
the rumor had grown out of a state *
ment made by Gen. Butler to the ef
fect that if -fraudulent votes in
New Yortk were thrown out , Hancock
would h'ave a majority.

WASHINGTON , November 6. 1 a.
m. The Star Bays : Secretary Me-
Pherson , of the republican congres
sional committee , yesterday claimed
that the next house will have 150 re
publican mcmberi against a united
opposition of 143 , making a majority
of seven over all. This is based on
the gains made as follows : Virginia ,
North Carolina , Louisiana , Maine ,
Wisconsin , Missouri , West Virginia ,
Kentucky and Illinois , one each ; Ten
nessee , and Iowa , two each ; Penn
sylvania 3. This makes a net repub
lican gain of sixteen members. From
this is to be deducted the republican
losses , as follows : New York , 4 ;
Nevada and California one each , 1 av-
ing a republican gain of ten'mem
bers , which added to 140 , makes 150.
These figures , while doubtless good
guesses , need confirmation. In Penn
sylvania Harry White is not yet out
of the woods , neither is It entirely
saf to claim the gain In West Vir
ginia , although the latest reports in
dicate that Wilson , democrat , is de
bated. The gain claimed in North
Carolina needs confirmation , although
the chances seem to be that Ketchum ,
democrat , is defeated. * .Assuming ,
however , that these claims are
rroneous , and that the republicans
iave none of the districts in doabt ,
; he figures will stand republican ,
L47 ; united opposition , 146 ; a clear
najority of ono over all opposition ,
.f Congressman Frye , of Maine , IB
lot elected to succeed Senator Ham-
in , his chances for the speakership of
: he house will be excellent. Mr.
&unon , of Iowa , is also mentioned
or the spoakewhip Mr. Edward
HcPherson , the late clerk of the
louse , it Is said-is again willing to ac
cept that trust The position of sor-
geant-at-arms is open for a scrub-
race. Frank Sherwood , a one-legged
inion veteran , who was assistant
ioor-keeper of tha house when un-
ier republican control , will be a for
midable candidate for the door-keep *
er'a place. Mr. Baxton , the old in
cumbent , is dead. Ex Senator Dor-
ey , It is said , would like to succeed
Secretary Birch as secretary of the
cnaio. _ TK t. jen u will ju uba-
fclconsist of thirty-nine democrats
and'thirty-seven republicans. This
includes both Mahone and David Da
vis as democrats. Either of them ,
if they act with the republicans , can
give that party control "of its organi
zation and the commissions pa
tronage. The republicans claim that
Mahone will act with them in con
sideration of his having at his dis
posal the fedcrd patronage. As to
the committees of the next houeo the
more prominent will probably have
the following chairmen : Elections ,
Keifer , of Ohio ; ways and means ,
Conger , of Michigan ; appropriations ,
Hubbel , of Michigan ; banking and
currency , Crepe , of Massachusetts ;
Pacific railroads , Harmer , of Penn
sylvania ; public lands , Washburn , of

Columbia , Neal , of Ohio ; judiciary ,
Reed , of Maine ; Indian affairs ,
Pcand , of Wisconsin ; military af
fairs , Harris , of Massachusetts ; for
eign affairs , Rico , of Massachusetts ;

belief among republicans is that Pres
ident-elect Garfiuld will call the house
and the senate in extra session the
5th of next March for reorganization ,
as is always the custom , to confirm
his cabinet and such other nomina
tions as he may have to make. Ma
jor Swayne , judge advocate of the
army , is put down to succeed Mr.

NEW YORK , Novembsr 5 , 4 p. m.
The World ( dem. ) says : The situation
in the country is not materially chang <
ed this morning. The democrats have
secured the Tennessee legislature ,
which makes the senate safe , even
without California. The house ia very
cloEC and the greenbackers may possi
bly hold the balance of power between
the republicans and democrats. Gar-
field's majority will be about 14,000
The Sun ( Ind ) says thai , congress
IB still in doubt , the two parties being
about evenly divided in both houses.
The greenbackers hold the balance of
power in the house , and there is a pos
sibility that they may hold it In the
senate. If the republicans succeed in
organizing the house they will speed
ily increase their majority by
ousting members from the south
ern states 7hose seats may
be estimated. The house of rep
resentative * is composed of 293 mem
bers. The roll is made up by the
clerk bf the preceding house who
holds over until his successor ij elect
ed. A majority consists of 146 mem
bers. Returns so far received foot np
14G democrat * ) , counting Ladd and
March , of Maine and Smith , of New
York , and 146 republicans. Fiyodia-
trictu vhi h are Riveii tothrtclemocrws
are yet in doubt , witlr\'ie chances
in favor of the demccrath candidatea.
Should that bo the result , Mnrch ,
Ladd and Smith will hold the balance
of power in the next house. The
senate also is close , although UB
chances favor the return by the dem
ocrats of a majority. Thirty demo
cratic senators from the southern
states and seven democratic senators
from the .northern states hold
over , viz : McPherson , of New Jersey ;
Pendleton , of Ohio ; Voorhees , of
Indiana ; Davis , of Illinois ; Farley ,
of California ; Slater , of Indiana ;
and Grover , of Oregon. The Nevada
legislature will elect Fair ( dem. ) to
succead Sharon. If the democrats
carried the California legislature as
reported they will have a majority of
two senators , exclusive of Mahono.
If the California legislature ia repub
lican , and Mahone acts with them , the
senate wi > l be a tie , and Arthur will
have a casting vote. Senator Grover ,
at Oregon , has been in poor health
for a long time. His death would de-
troy the democrat majority.
The Herald ( Ind. ) says Garfield's
majority in the electoral college is 34 ,
claiming California for the republi
cs. On the popular vote it says
Hincock probably leads Garfield by
26,000. The honae of representatives
