. D. 0.May Z9. Mr
Reed , republican , from the committei
on rules , called up the proposec
amendment to the rules prohibitinj
dilatory motions in election casei.
Mr. Randall , pending putting of
the question , raised the question o ;
Mr. Kcnna moved to adjourn. The
yes and nays were called. Lost.
Mr. Kenna then moved to adjourn
till Wednesday. The ayes and nays
wore called and the motion lost.
The first veto showed the ropubli-
ans had a quorum.
Mr. Randall again railed the ques
tion of consideration.
Mr. Rood made the point of order
that no dilatory motion should bo en
tertained on a proposition to change
Mr Randall denied the right of the
chair to construe his motion as dila
Mr. Rood proposed to state the
TOJBons for such construction , provid
ing debate was limited to a fixed time.
The democrats.refused to fix a limit ,
leaving the chair the discretion.
Mr. Reed then addressed the chair.
Ho argued that the proposition was
merely to change tha rule which nl-
lowed the minority to obstruct busi
ness , and congress hnd a constitutional -
al right to make the change. It was
unnecessary to argue that the motions
by the minority to-day and during the
past eight days were dilatory , their
character being solf-ovident. During
imilar procedure by the democrats in
1875 , Speaker Blaine decided not to
recognize dilatory motions on propo
sitions to change the rules , and that
committee rules , under the action of
the house , might propose amendments
i , rules at any time , and the min-
'y'thcrefore had no right to further
. Randall folio we'd , arguing that
th'o chair hid'jio right to rule against
motions pending oonsiduraticn of now
rules. Ho assorted that Blaine never
ruled as Rood alleged , nnd contended
that rules could not bo changed by
less than a two-thirds vote , quoting
Garfield in support.
l Mr. Kaason argued that the ques
tion of seating n member was the
% eaest privilege.
* Stfr. Carlisle denied Read's nssor-
tionSihat Oilfield opposed filibuster
ing in election cases , nnd concluded
that on ( ha contrary ho led them.
Mr. Burrows read the Record to
show that Garfield opposed fillibuster-
ing ns reactionary ann an unjust usur
pation of the rights of the majority.
( Cheers. )
Mr. UaE'rell denounced the tactics
of the minority , nnd Mr. Ulackburn
replied that it was dangerous to per ;
mit the majority to ohnngo the rules
whenever they wanted to deny the
rights ot the minority.
Mr. Robinson of Louisana sent to
the house ways and means committee
through the petition box a bill appro
priating the seventy million cotton
tax , collected in the south during the
/war to Mississippi river improvements.
Speeches were made in support of '
1 Mr. Reed's point of order by Messrs.
Robinson Hnzlotine , Rabbins , and
Reed , and Cox , McLino , and Randall

tion of crops in that region. Ho says
the crop reports trom the line of the
Control branch may bo consid
ered as follows : Wlnnt , both
winter and spring , show a slight
decrease in acreage planted. The da-
creuso is mainly in Hio west , and
reaches the largont figures in the cen
ter of the extreme dry spot of lost
season. On the east end of the line
the decrease in acreage is not BO mur-
ked , and in some instances an in
crease ia reported. A well posted
farmer told mo to-day that the in
creased yield would exceed the do-
crcaso in area and glvo n larger yield
than over known in the state.
Rye and o ta. will show an increased
acreage with n yield above the average.
Barley , millet , 'potatoes , etc. , are
somewhat increased in ncroago nnd
the crop will bo largo. The corn crop
shows nn iminoiuely increased aero-
ngo which will , I think , bo clone to
fifty per cent.
This increase is , light near the
river , but incroasoo as you go west
until some points have reached as
high as one hundred per cant , The
planting of corn is not yet finished ,
and that which is in the ground ha ;
been sot back by the continued cold
Seasonable rains will make a corn
crop far above the average. There ia

sorghum and broom corn , and is inoro

tions it asked of ono hundred editor *

ana , Mississippi , North Carolina , and
Texas on May 8th , The question *
"Aro the southern people still solid
for the democratic partyl"
"How do they like Arthur's admin-
intration ? "
"Aro they for tariff ? "
The substance of the answers i
uniformly that the south is nolidly
democratic , the independent movement -
mont amounting to very little. The
states named are utterly disappointed
In Arthur , whom they regard as a re
publican partisan enemy , who has
ruined the hopes the nouth hod im
plicitly formed ot the truly national
lolicy.Garfiold hnd promised , and the
louth believed ho would carry out-
The south is oolid for tariff only in
Hississippi ; where the people are
iloaaod with Arthur's policy in the
Hiusissippi river improvements , but
hat will not change their \otcs , as
they look upon the promised improve ,
monts ns their rights.

Very Ancient Butter.
Wignor and Church , two English *
homists , have been examining two-
cry ancient samples of butter. The.
rst was Irish'bog butter , which could
ot be traced with any degree of oer-
ainty to a particular locality ; but
iioro would bo ne doubt ns to its be-
ng a perfectly authentic specimen ,
robably 1,000 years old The other-
ample , which was much older , was.
.ikon from nn Egyptian tomb , nnd
ates from about 400 to GOO years bo- P
ore Christ. Tt waa contain- i
d in a email alabaster
vase , and hnd apparently boon
toured in while in a molted state. . It
sloscly resembled slightly rancid but-
or in appearance , color , smell , and.
nuti- . The analysis proved that the
amplos had not undergone nny nota-
> lo chnngo during their long storage.
A modification of this ancient method ,
> f preserving butter for long porioda
s tho.following : "Molt the butter in
a stoneware or a well-glased
earthen pan ; eel in an outer
water bath nt a tempera.-
uro of about 180 Fahrenheit and
coop it huatud , skimming it for
omo time until it become quite trana-
mront ; then pour olT the clear par-
ion into another vessel , and cool iL as
[ iiickly as possible by placing the ves-
ol in very eold water , " It is in this
way that thn Tartars nro enabled to
upply the Constantinople market ,
a this condition the butter keeps por-
ectly fresh for Wx or nine months ,
f placed in closed vessel and cool
tore. It has been found that butter
nolted and skimmed by the Tartarian
method , and than salted by ours , will
remain. Bound and fine tasted for two.
