WASHINGTON , December 9 10 p ,
The announcement from Paris thai
Secrstary of the Navy Thompson had
accepted the chairmanship of the
Amercan branch of the Panama Canal
company , IB , to say the least , prema
ture. The secretary sajs that the
position has not been tendered to
him. He says a prominent party con
nected with the scheme in tbis coun
try , has made it known to him that
the chairmanship of the American
branch of the company would bo ten
dered to him , but the tender has not
yet been made. Therefore , he is not
prepared to ay what he shall do in
the premises. Jf he accepts it will
throw him out of the Indiana'aena-
torial race. The chairmanship would
undoubtedly be a life position , and at
an enormous salary. The same place
was offered to Gen. Grant , but he
could not accept it for the reason that
he did not wish to place himself in an
antagonistic attitude toward the pol
icy of his government on 'the canal
In speaking of the Pennsylvania
scaitorshlp last night Senator Wal
lace eald tnat he regarded Hon. G. A.
Gow as leading the contest. Yet , in
the event of any combinations that
would operate dieadvantageosly for
the ex-speaker , he thought his suc
cessor would probably be Hon. Thos.
BL Bayne , now representing the
Twenty-third Pennsylvania district in ,
congress. ( When reminded that it
bad been rumored here for some days
that Uov. Hoyt WES developing much
strength in the direction of the sena-
torship , he replied he did not think
the governor would enter the contest
at all , as the information received
from Harrishurg yesterday indicated
such a determinination.
No report has yet been made in the
colibrated Donnell-Washburn Minnesota
seta contest. A majority of the com
mittee is in favor of JVashburn , the
sitting member. In the case of Yates
vs. Martin , of the First North Carolina
lina district , no report has been made
by the committee. The case hai
been considered , and a majority are
in favor of Yates , the contestant.
There is alee a contest in the Second
North Carolina district , represented
by Ketchom O'Hare. The contestant
has not presented sufficient evidence
to convince the committee of the jus *
bice of his claim , and it will proba
bly never be acted upon. The ovi-
ience in the contest of Mackey against
D'Connor , of the Second South Carolina
lina district , has just been printed.
The committee has notified Mackey
jo file his brief. It is likely there
prill be two reports in the case , the
najority report favoring the sitting
The republican representatives and
lenators , In joint caucus last night ,
leclded unanimously to oppose the
Morgan rule by every parliamentary
levice. There was some difference of
ipinion in the caucus held Wednes-
lay night by republican representa-
ives on the question of filibustering
o defeat the Morgan resolution. The
ixponents of the extreme thory were
n a small minority , and they did not
eera to be very firmly grounded in
heir suggestions for conservative
ictlon. The fact that there was a dif-
erence of opinion , however , led
the call for 5 joint caucus.
Senator Blaine made a speech which
illcited great applause. It was argu-
nentative and stalwart in tone. Af-
er criticising the resolution , bo
poke of the old twenty-second joint
ale , which had been cited by the
lemocrata as a precedent for a new
ule , which they now proposed to
nact. Mr. Blaine denied that the
ild twenty-second joint rule was a
irecedent for anything. He claimed
hat the rule was rendered extinct ,
nd disposed of as a precedent by the
reation of the electoral commission
, tribunal In the creation of which
ioth democrats and republicans had a
iand. He mentioned that the pro-
oaod rule was dangerous , because it
ras at variance with the theory of the
ramers of the constitution , that con-
rees should not have power to elect a
toePoncas Judge Dundys Decision ,
f Mhlngton Special to The St. Louis Republican
The decision of Jndgo Dundy In
he case of the Poncas against the
iioor is somewhat of a curiosity In
ugml literature. The suit was brought
gainst the Sioux for certain lands
nd Islands lying within the state of
Nebraska , and judgment was given in
aver of the Poncas and ousting the
Sioux. The latter did not defend ,
tot knowing In fast that they were
ued. Process was served on Spotted
'ail last summer , but he did not
eid it , but threw It on the ground ,
ayinc he knew noihing about it. The
pvemment was not a party to the
nit and no one t.ppeared against the
ounsel for the Ponca ? . The result
ras that judgment went by default ,
ut it cow turns out that action was
rought out for lands never held or
lalmed by the defendant Sioux.
Then the reservation of the latter
ras set apart these islands within Ne-
raska were excluded. It was sup-
osod they still belonged to the Pon-
as under special treaty , giving them
be islands , and nobody has the
lightest objection to them having
'hat eome persons have deemed it
ecewary for them to sue for.
Something About Senatorships

The attitude of Senator-elect Ma-
hone , of Virginia , is not the enl ;
doubtful thingin connection with th
next senate. The report now is tha
James 0. Flood , the richest , next t <
Mackey , of all the money operator
on the Pacific coast , has aspiration
for the United Statea senate. No
body in California knows what Flood'
politics are. He has sometimes givei
liberally to one party , and sometime
to another. It la now said that h
has proposed that they shall mak
him their nominee , and the leglsla
tare being BO close he hopes ( as th
report goes ) by the use of his mone ;
to secure his election His case i
much like Ms partner , Fair's , in Ne
vada. Fair .is not a democrat , al
though he will be elected by demo
craict votes. Nobody doubts his nsi

at Virginia City , says that he , having
set up the pins so as to elect himself ,
is not really indifferent as to * senatori

and do his very best for his state.
Fair is a man who will attend to his

be able to say of him , as they can
truthfully say of Sharon , that he has

The house committee on military
affairs will , on Tuesday next , consid
er Gen. McCook's bill to place Gen.
Grant npon the retired' list of the
Army. This bill has created coneld-
erable discussion among cenatora end
representatives , and some democrats
oppose the bill on the ground that
Grant took an active part in the re

lieved , however , that enough demo
crats will unite with republicans to

| The credentials of Gen. Garfield as
senator-elect from Ohio are still among
the archives of the senate. It Is ex
pected though , that within a day or
two Gen. Garfield will , vby letter , re
quest the vice president to return the
same to him , so that he. may return
them , through the governor of Ohio ,
to the legislature. On returning the
credentlals.the general will also trana-
ralt a letter declining the senatorial
office to which he has been elected.
WASHINGTON , December 8. No
business of importance was transacted
this morning.
On motion of Mr. Davis (111. ( ) it
was ordered that when the sonata ad

After the presentation of petitions
ind the reference of a few bills , the
senate proceeded to the business on
the calendar under the Anthony rules.
The chair laid before the senate a
jommunicatlon from the secretary of
irar in-relation to the purchase of the
Dapers of the late rebel Generals
Bragg and Polk. The price asked is
510,000 , and the secretary raises the
question whether contributions from
inion officers , that had been gratul-
ioualy contributed , should be made in
aver of ex-confederate officers. The
Communication was sent to the com-
nittee on military affairs. , .
Mr. Withers Introduced a bill for
he termination of pension claims
igainst the United States. Referred
o the committee on pensions.
Mr. Garland offered a resolution in
truding the military committee to
nquire into the condition of the
government property at Little Bock ,
Lrk. Adopted.
Mr. Bnrnside has given notice that
, t the next meeting he would ask the
enate to proceed to the consideration
if the senate bill to establish an edu-
ational institution , and apply a por-
ion of the proceeds of public land
o public education.
The senate resumed the considera-
ion of the bill on the calendar , on
rhich no objections were made.
A bill granting a pension at the
ate of $20 per month to Mary A.
jord , widow of Captain Lor3 , of the
thirty-seventh Indiana regiment ,
rhich report had been made , caused a
irolonged debate , but the bill was
inally defeated by a vote of 43 to 15.
The chair laid before the senate a
ommunicatien from W. W. Corcoran ,
f the joint commission of the Wash-
igton monument , transmitting the
nnual report , and recommended an
ppropriatlon of § 200,000 for the con-
inuance of the work.
On motion of Mr. Paddock , the
ill for the sale of the remainder of
be Otoo and Missouri Indian reserva-
lens in Nebraska and Kansas was
Etken up and discussed.
The house passed a bill to authorize
he New York chamber of commerce
D place statuary in the sub-treasury
uilding hi that city.
Consideration of the joint rule on
be electoral count was then resumed.
Mr. McLain argued In favor of the
ale , and insisted that it was iu as-
ordance with the 12th article of the ,
The fortification bill , the first cf
be regular appropriation bills , wei re-
orted to-day , by Mr. Baker , of In-
lana. The bill makes the same SD-
ropriations as were contained in tra
ill last year , viz. : § 100,000 for 1-3-
iain of the armament of the sri
east defence , and § 50,000 for torpedo
ervlce. The only change from the
ut year's bill was a clause authorizing *
he secretary of war to change uuser-
iceable and unsuitable articles of power -
[ er and shot on hand for new powder ,
tc.An effort was made to increase the
ppropriatlon bill , but the com-
u'ttee would not allow it.
Mr. Kelley Jntrodnced a bill to re-
iort on banfchecks , medicines and
i&nk deposits.
Mr. McLane , after reading the fifth
rtlcle of the constitution , said it gave
n express grant to both houses of
ongress to count the votes : He
doubted whether many men on th
other side would take the position c
Mr. Robeson , that the power to cone
the votes is vested hi the vice preai
dent by the constitution. That the
ory has never been seriously accepts
In the history of this country , no
could the theory be accepted that congress
gross could constitute a tribunal t
count and declare , lhe result of th
electoral votes for president and. vie
president. Congress did once by lai
establish a tribunal , and the coun
made under would stand as a monn
ment of dlrgraco to that tribunal
Mr. McLane argued that It was eatab
liahed under pressure , because th
country had an executive who prop03
ed to use the army and the navy evei
to defeat the will of the people. I
was under such a pressure that th
gentlemen agreed to pass that law
But nearly all men of any distinctjoi
expressed the regret that-thcy , nyuli
be called on to vote for such a law es
tablishing such an exceptional prcce
dent , and authorized another body t
perform the duty which devolve !
npon the two houses of congress. A
a proof of that , the authority f thi
two houses to count the votes hat
heretofore been recognized. Mr
McLane's reference to the fact thS
Mr. Lincoln , ina managa tocong ; JBS
remonstrated opainst being ca1' '
upon to share the respousi
bility of declaring the result of a prea
idential election. That message wai
one of the acts which the gentlemai
from Now Jersey would like to wipi
out. Mr. McLane ma'de a long argu
ment to show that , under articli
twelve of the constitution the twc
houses counted the votes.
A long and tedious discussion en
sued as to the operation of the pro
posed joint rule. In reference to the
action upon'the vote of the statesthc
republicans contending that under the
proposed rule one house really determined -
mined the result in each state , while
the democrats argued that it required
the concurrent action of both house :
to recleve or reject a vote , and thai
they regarded it as the fairest solu
tion of the question.
Mr. Lapham , of Now York , ex
pressed the belief that the democrats
hcd some ulteiior' object , or thej
would not press this matterwith sucb
persistency. He gave notice that he
.would resort to all parltamentaryjex. <
peditions 'to defeat it. He insisted
on the rights of the vice-president tc
count the vote , claiming that no vice-
president would ever defeat the wl !
of the people. He did not regard il
as possible to count a fraudulent vote.
In the course of his remarks ho ra
fetred to the quotation by the demo
crats of Mr. Lincoln's message on this
subject.and intimated that they hr.d
uo right to quote Mr. Lincolnas the ;
had regarded him as a mere rail-split
Mr. Herbert , of Alabama , in reply ,
denied that there was the least oc
casion to impute ulterior or bad ob
jects to the democrats. He admitted
the election of Gen. Garfield , but said ;
the democrats twanted to establish
the fact that the vice-president should
not count the vote. Referring to Mr.
Lapham's remarks about .Mr. Lincoln ,
he claimed that no section of the
country had more reap jet'for Mr.
Lincoln's memory than the south ,
Mid they regarded his assassination aa
DUO of the greatest evils that could
lave bsfallon that section.
Mr. Nowberry , of Michigan , closed
; he day's debate , arguing in favor ce
; he right of the vico-president to count
.he vote , end at tne close of his
poecL , the house adjourned. ;
There is no telling how long the
lebate will run.
Mr. Wood tried again yesterday to

eference to closing the discussion ,
lo wanted to know how many days
ho gentlemen on the other side pro-
losed to disturb the public bnalne.-n.

The political air Is full of sensational
rumors of a split in the ministry oc
the policy to be pursued in regard tc
the situation in Ireland. The storj
chiefly current is that several members
of the cabinet are satisfied that a land
lord reform will not glvo peace to Ire

DUBLIN , December 10 1 a. m.
A-special last night from Monaghau
to The Dublin express , says the great
est excitement prevailed there. Lord
lloaamoro was accompaned7jby Lord
Mandeville , who will assist at the an
ti-land league meeting. Mandeville
telegraphed to hia agent at Porta-
down to send 1000 men to Scattstown
without delay. Another telegmm was
despatched to the district grand maa-
ter Orangeman , of Armagh , to send
1000 men. A similar telegram was
sent to Lord Crichton to send 1000
men from Fermanagh. These are cer
tain to arrive , and the number will be
mere than doubled by tnenfrom Mon
aghanandthe surrounding neighbor
hood. Th'o men will be suppliedywiih
aome means of defense. The most
active efforts are being made by the
constitutional party and the leagues
to make this last meeting a success.
The assemblages will be most formida
ble , and perhaps moat dangerous to
the peace , that nas been witnessed in
Ulster for some years , and if Ulster
landlords take pattern by the example
let them by Lords RoBsmore , Mande-
rllle and Crichton , leaguers would
lave little to say In Ulster.
The Cork grand jury has found true
) ills against Mr. Healy'M. P. , and
} riyate secretary to Mr. Parnell , and
\Ir. \ Walsh , of the Balls land league ,
in the charge of intimidating Corne-
lus Manning. The trial will probably

An immense land meeting was held

told a counter , demonstration , but
hey dispersed at the urgent entreat

eagners had telegraphed to Dubliner
or military protection , and a sangnin-
ry conflict was barely avoided.
DUBLIN , December 7,10 p , m. It
i considered probable that a fresh In-
ictment will be prepared by the gov-
rnment against Mr. Parnell , based
pen certain utterances in his late
peech at Waterford. The portion
specially offensive was his Intimation

Notwithstanding the opposition of
10 Orangemen , the league is gaining
round in Ireland , and the probablli *
les are that the Oatholio and Protest-

rejects of the league.

he alarm waa sounded , and in a few

Q five minutes after the alarm waa
iven the stage and whole interior of

Ing it almost certain that nothing of
value would bo left inside , and that
the whole building would be gutted.
The fire appears to have started under
the stage , and is doubtless owing to the
to some imperfection of the furnace ,
or possibly from carelessness. The
smoke was probably caused by the
scenery being permeated with so much
oil. Wet the lazJ. sign of a ilame waite

heavy volumes of smoke issuing from

the open air , pulling their hose after

though the building of the Globe-

would both go. The losa or insnrrnce
