D. C. , December fi.
At the opening the ncnatu was not as
fall as usual , but tilled up soon after
by the overflow from the house . The
senate was called to order at 12
o'clock. Senator Windom's creden
tials were presented and ho was sworn

A largo number of hills , miinly
those which failed in the last con-
grewB , were introduced and laid on
the fable to bo referred when the
committees arc appointed.
At 1:10 p. m. the aonato tank a re
cess until 2:30. :
The most interesting and only in
cident of political interest in the pro
ceedings was during the three minutes
the senate was in session after recess.
Edmunds offered resolutions review
ing and continuing the committees as
they existed at thu close of
.the last session , and asked that
Alley Ho over under the rules.
Pugh wa ready with another reso
lution intended as a substitute , leav-
iud it to bo divided by the president
pro tern , whether the committees
should be equally decided between
the two parties , and if ho so decided
them to designate which of the com-
urittoes shall be constituted with a
majority of members democrats , and
which , with a majority of republicans ,
and that thu senate proceed to the
election of committees on the basis in
klio usual way.
Edmunds made a point of orc'erthat
this rosoulution was not in accordance
, \ . with the rules of the senate.
Without decision , both resolutions
and the point of order went over until
to-morrow and thu senate adjourned.

isted since thu period before Lincoln's

ing the interval so few vital questions
of national importance left unsettled
to dr.iw party lines upon as now. In
purely party mattcis ho would alwajs

AFTEll TIIK 1'im.SIMMONS.
All indications now point to a via-
orous onslaught by southern republicans -
licans on the poatollieos throughout
the south. Many of these olliccs are
now filled by democrats and lukewarm
rppublicaim. A move in this direc
tion has already been made by Sena
tor Kellogg , of Louisiana , at whose
request a list has been propitrod of
employes of the postoflico depart
ment , showing the compensation they
receive and the states they hail frcm.
tVn effort will bo made to havw the
ottices of thin department and all
other departments of the government
apportioned out by states , and thus
aocuro fair representation of southern
republicans to oih'co. This pro
gramme 1ms received an impetus by
the success of the southern republic
ans in electing Brownlow as door
keeper of the hoase.
It is conildcntally assorted to-night
that thosonatocoinmittoos will remain
unchanged , and that Kelly will have

mental diseases as a specialty since
1874. In reply to n question by Sco-
villo , ho said if it was tmo that the
prisoner's habits _ were n-ally as de
scribed , if insanity' prevailed in the
family , if many persons had declared
him insane and if it was true ho hud
been dominated by the idea that he
was inspired , that the witness on such
assumption would regard the prisoner
Ouiteau looked around approvingly.
lie got excited because Davidge , in a
question , used the word "vulgar , " and
said that there was nothing vulaar in
the caao , but everything waa high-
toned. [ Laughter. ] Ouiteau smiled
approval upon iho laughter.
The witness said a person who be
hoved ho was inspired by God would ,
in acting out the inspiration , act with
his usual peculiarities.
Guitoan here broke out about some
utterance by his ux-wifo , which ho
hud just seen in u paper , and ho
wanted the court to know that it was
all lies. After ono question hoaskoc ,
"Where hereditary insanity exists in
n man , docs ii not have to show itielf
sooner or later upon sufHciont
cause ? "
"Yos , sir , " replied the witness.
"That is all , " said the prisoner.
The subject of emotional insanity ,
inspirational and hereditary insanity ,
was further discussed and Guiteau
broke out with the remark : "Well ,
if the political situation had not been
what it was during last spring there
would have boon no occasion for my
inspiration. " The audience lauched
at this remark and Guiluau looked
The witness stated that probably
ono person in five are insane. "Ah , "
said Mr. Davidge , "that does not leave
much chance for many of us. "
"No , " fcroko out ( Juitcau , "that
takes you in , judge. "
"Well , " sain Mr. D.ividgo , "if ono
person in five are insane , two of the
juroia in this case are doomud. "
Mr. Scoville "Probably the law-
jorn will tukii their places. "
Tliis mdly was greeted with a loud
peal of laughter. Guiteau grinned
again and patted Scoville IMI the buck
At 1 o'clock a recces was taken for
Inilf an hour.
The first witness after re-cess wan
Col. R. J. Ilinton , of The Washington
G.i/wtte. . Ho remomberjd seeing the
prisoner at lopublican hoadqtmiturit.
Formed the opinion that he w.ia a de
cidedly ill-balanced , cranky egotist.
lie thought thu prisoner's speech a
ridiculous count ruction.
Guitoau interrupted him : "It wan
nothing of the sort ; it wan highly
spoken of by the best men nf the na
tion. You1 to witnot-H , "don't know
what you are talking about. Scovillo
liad no business to put you on thu
stand. I am no fuol. Seville -
villo cannot prove rno tel
l > o a fool. I would rather
bo hung as u man than acquitted UH a
fool. Putting such u man on the
stand i ) an insult to me. If yon
( talking to Scoville ) had not put Davis
on the stand it would have boon bet-
: er. I thought you wuro a smarter
awyer than you are. "
This outburst caused cuiiHiderablo
oxcilimient. The prisoner gesticulated
wildly , and paid no huud to Scovillo's
endeavors to quiet him.
Chnrles II , Nicols , superintendent
of the Blnomingdulo asylum , was then
called. The hypothetical condition

iim , and the witness elated ( iuiteau

Ciuiteau brandished his arms fiercely
mil said : "I rest my case on the fact
hat I was inspired by the Deity , 1
will not allow any otlier defense. "

iicaniug of the word "inspired. "
( iuiteau exclaimed : "Inspiration , in
his case , moaim the interjection of
something into the mind foreign to it. "
A hypothetic case was explained to
: ) rs , Gelding , MoHndo , Chatting and
Finhur , who said , if the- suppositions
were true , Guiteau was imuno at the
imu ho shot Gar field.
Hcovillo said ho expected President
Arthur to testify , but ho was too busy
with his message to congress to attend
court. Ho expected Clifford , of Chicago
cage , to bo prtmont to-morrow. There
were only two or throe ifloro witnesses
for the defense.

that a number of years ago ho Buttered

About a month ago , in Cleveland , he
