WASHINGTON , December 13 10 p.
m. Secretary Thompson this morn-
njj requested the president to name-
us successor to take effect Monday ,
the 20th inst. , as he wishes to leave
the department on that date. The
jresident , having accepted the resigns
tion of Hon. R. W. Thompson , and
he latter having requested to be re-
feved of his duties on the 20th inst. ,
-he president at 2 . .
p. in. to-day , des-
gnated the Hon. Alex. Ramsey , aec-
retaty of war , to act as secretary of
he navy in addition to his other du-
iea , from and after the 20th inst.
The attention of Secretary Thompson
raa to-day called to-a publication ,
purporting to give an account of an
interview between himself and Gen.
Grant in New York about the Panama
canal route , which was not at all a
pleasant one. Gen. Grant is stated to
have left Secretary Thompson with a
flea tn his ear. The secretary said
that the idea of Gen. Grant hunting
him up to induce him to abandon the
proposal with the French canal com
pany -was preposterous. Ho passed

Fifth Avenue hotelj and merely greet

WASUINGTON , December 14,1 n. m.
Gen. Grant arrived yesterday after
noon at 4 o'clock
on the limited ex
press , and was received with a salute
of seven guni , by the National Vet
eran clubs of the Boys in Blue , who
escorted him to the residence of Gen.
Boal , on Pennsylvania avenne. The
streets along the line of procession
were packed with citizens , and the approaches
preaches to Gen. Beal's residence were
so thronged as to bo nearly impassi
ble. Owing to the pressure of pri
vate business , Gen. Grant will only
remain in the city three days , but ho
expects to return here about the mid
dle of February , when ho will return
until summer. A formal reception
will be held to-night at Masonic Tem
ple , under the auspices of the Boys in c
Blue , between the hours of 8 and 10
o'clock , which will afford ample oppor t
tunity for the general to moot his a
hosts of friends at the capitol , U
It was currently reported hero yes S
terday that the president was very t
much chagrined at the action of Sec 0t
retary Thompson. He is well aware t
that the wily Frenchman will make t
the most of what is apparently a sanc- 0
i-n by this government of his canal 0u
aroject , among European capitalists , u
tt was also stated that the president al
vas contemplating the propriety of alCl
lending a special to Cl
message con- Clt
ress again enunciating his views in t
jpposition to the construction of an "wt
nter-oceanic cinal on American ter t ;
ritory by a foreign corporation. A d
jill will be introduced u the house to- 8
lay to incorporate the Nicaraguan IIre [
anal company. * Gen. Grant will bo rest
lamed the . st
among corporators. stit
iVhilo Gen. Grant's visit to Washing itw
on was arranged before the canal ex ite.
ilement prevailed , it is known that e.
10 will hold several conferences with
untlemen interested in the project else
luring his stay hero. He is thorough- sefn
posted on the canal subject , and it fncl
intended that ho shall be rnadopres- clat

WASHINGTON , December 13 Mr.
'ownsend < , of Ohio , presented the credentials
rodontials of Ezra L5. Taylor as Gen-
ral Garfield's successor.
Mr. HurJ objected to the administra-
ion of the oath to the applicant , on , .
tie ground that ho was not elected c
roperly from the Nineteenth d' trict '
Ohio. Ho quoted the law of Ohio ,
show that the counties that now co
impose the Nineteenth district were la
nt the counties that hud elscted arar
aylor. -ar
McKinstry , in reply , argued that coba
'aylor's title to a scat was not ques- ba
onod by any ono in the Nineteenth io
strict , and ho contended that Tay- iopa
r was properly elected. pa
Mr. Butterworth , of Ohio , has in- na
reduced a bill to provide for cheaper ar
ites of postage. It authorizes the th
ostmaster-general to establish a new
ylo of postal card to bo transmitted ofm f
one cent each. He has introduced m <
bill to relieve soldiers of the charge or
desertion. It recites instances orby
many soldiers who served faithfully th
the late war , who left their com- at :
landbefore they were mustered out ,
ad it proposes to relieve all who Ca
jrved faithful , of the charge of do- sp
jrtion , provided they were with heir lat
smmand till the actual close of the latmi
ostllities. mi
Mr. McCoid , of Iowa , has Intro- thi
uced Into the house a joint reaolu- co
on compelling a state to maintain a
tp >
stem of free school education. It
so declares that no citizen of the
nited States , who has not attended no
ublic orprivata schools for five'years > deed
ho cannot read or write , shall be
alitled to vote , nor shall hs bo i.
untcd in the general enumeration
r representation. The amendment
so fixes ono day for all elections in sr *
ears when president and vice-presi-
ent are voted for. -
After the Taylor matter had been we
leposed of , the states were called and in ;
number of bills introduced and re- ho
irred. ES (
Mr. Lowe offered a resolution dl- cei
scting an Inquiry into the allegation BE
lat several states had deprived thair rif
tizens of tha right of suffrage. Tae tir
ates of Pennsylvania , Rhode Island , EC !
fassachusetts and Georgia , were es- to
scially mentioned. Objection -was Di
iade to the consideration of the rcro- mete
ition and it was referred to the judi- to >
ary committee. " Bi
Mr. Poehler , of Minnesota , of- tic
fered a resolution practically protect
ing a-rainst the theory of the German
government's viRWS with regard to
the treaty with that government , and
demanding its abrogation by the
United States.
Mr. Warner , of Ohio , Introduced n
bill to appoint a commission on the
tariff question.
The joint resolution In relation to
the electoral count came up. ,
Fernando Wood , chairman of the
ways and means committee , gave notice -
tico that after to-day he would de
mand the consideration ol the fund
ing bill
Mr. Becknell promised ho would
demand a rote aa soon as the debate
Mr. Conger intimated that the re
publicans would debate the question
at great length.
Mr. White , of Pennsylvania , made
a speech in opposition to the rule and
was followed by. Mr. Finley , of
Ohio , and Mr. Davis , of North Care
lina. Mr. Finley took the ground
that there was no use beginning tbo
fight unless it was proposed to keep it
up. He admitted Gen. Garfiold's
election , but said he would hold the
republicans responsible for any delay
in counting the vote.
A question arose between Mr. Da
vis , North Carolina , and Mr. Reed ,
of Maineln , wnich the whole question
of the late campaign was discussed.
Without disposing of the matter , the
house , at 5 p. m. , adjourned.
Senators Edmunds and Logan appeared - -
pearod in their e'eats for the first time
during the present session.
The usual number of memorials and
pstitions were presented and referred.
Whyte , from the committee on
printing , reported a house joint reso
lution that ono copy of The Congres
sional Record be sent to each of our
legation abroad. Passed.
Mr. Jones , of Florida , introduced a
bill for the construction of a public
building at Pensacola , Florida , to re
place the one just destroyed by fire.
Mr. Randolph succeeded in calling
up for consideration the bill for the
relief of Fitz John Porter , and oSorcd
his amendment , making him a colonel
on the retired list without ba".k pay.
Mr. Edmunds asked through how
many administrations the power to
appoint would run. If the present
executive failed to appoint , would the
president-elect appoint ? acd so on
through his successors for a series of
term ? . He moved an amendment
limiting the power to appoint to ono
year. Yeas 21Nays 33. Messrs. Davis
(111. ( ) and McDonald voted with the
republicans in the sffimative.
The substitute for the bill offered
that Porter had been dismissed from a ,
the army , and he was no more a part *
of the army than any other citizen.
Mr. JSdmuuds said con Teas could aa
well enact that the president is au
thorized t to reinstate David Davis E3 a
justice in the supreme court of the
DmtcJ 1 States -Hn could . .content ,
himiolf with pointing out the unconstitutional
stitutional features of the bill without tl :

Mr. McDonald said the proposition tl
that the senate should set the action 81

new one. There were numerous pretf ;
cedents for it , and not only that of tl ;

LONDON , December 13 10 p. m. Sp.
he sudden and unexpected arrival in Sp.m.
Jondon of Mr. Forster , chief secro-
ary for Ireland , from Dublin , hpi m.Hs
rented a great sensation in political
ircles. : Mr. Forstor is understood to pr
iavo returned from Ireland more con- " 3
inced than ever , if uosaible , that a '
ompromising and temporizing policy tei as
rill not be of the least avail to pacify
ha conntty. Ho is in favor of these rei
so of armed force , and that only as
means of upholding the authority of SP
he government. The cabinet meet-
g , which has been called for to- 1an
Ight , Is expected to bo an nnusu- an
lly important and stormy one. All fol >
lanner of sensational and exciting we
umora are in circulation regarding cle
he meeting and the line of policy an
ikely to be adopted. The opinion ioi.ri
ains ground that Gladstone will have .ri
abandon his policy of waiting to
nsh a land bill through parliament , Sjx
nd acquiesce in the warlike temper
ad propositions of Mr. Forster , who , m.
is understood , has placed the Irish m.we
ituation in so clear a light before a sb
ortion of his colleagues as to induce
3em to side with him. This Is prob- ate ;
bly true , and if ao , Mr. Gladstone's tal
oaition is as critical as it well can be ,
ad demands immediate decision on
a r
in part. Mr. Forstor insists that the ha
nao for half way measures with the
nid league is past ; that Ireland Is on quwa
10 , brink of revolution , and that the an
tuation will not permit the govern- Th
icint to await the .action of parlia- hii
lont. The opinion of The Times and hiima
ho Standard , and other lending jour- sui
ils , is that the gravity of afftirs in ne >
