Long's report which waa found beside
hla dead body has been made public.
It makes thirty thousand words in the
details and Incidents of the cruieo
from the depnrturo from San Fran
cisco , 1879 to 1881. Ita principal
features IB the elaborate account of
DdLong's viown with regard to the ox-
podittou. Ho considered it Rood
judgment to head forWranpell Land.
His idea was to adopt the land aa a
, support for the first winter's cam
paign. Ho embodies a story of how
land woa lghtod and how ho expected
to roach it , and graphically des
cribes how on the next day tha
Jonnnottca became besot In Ice never
sgaln to bo relieved and says , "tho
* party was compelled to make a virtue
of necessity and stay where wo woro. "
"Sometimes all night mid sometimes
day and night , from January 19 to
February 4 , Sweatman mil Ntudor-
man stood down in the foropeak , icy
water flowing around them , neirly to
their knees , working faithfully until
their work was accomplished , und the
, . good results of that work were ovi-
i dent in the gradually reduced amount
fe .of water coming into the ahip and
f. our'ability ' to control the leak without
3L aubh'rmnous expenditure of fuolas had
Y been necesiary theretofore. It is for
/ ; | theao reasons that I have had the
/.honor to recommend those two men to
, you for medals of honor , as a recogni-
4'tionof heroic conduct uader the most
trying circumstances.
1 Captain DeLong's record of the re
mainder of the winter and summer of
1880 is for the most part a monoton
ous record of storms , ioo movements ,
constant anxiety and almost unbroken
disappointment. As the short Arolio
summer drew to acloao without setting
the Jeannette f reo and another dreary
winter approached , Captain DaLontr
r , J"J"uO : ' bgmto rnrolvajnliis mind
tLo question whethor-lt would not bo
bettor to abandon the ship and make
for the northern coast of Siberia over
the ioo , than run the risk of a second
winter in the pack Under date of
September 20th , 1880 , ho says : "I
diallko to materially dwell on the idea
of abandonment of the ship. Wo have
come through so much it gives me
hopes of surviving more. As long as
enough of the ship remains to shelter
us , sticking by that fragment is pre
ferable to camping on Ice , and I can
conceive of greater forlorn hope than
the attempt to reach Siberia ( aay 240
miles distant ) over the ice tnat sur
rounds us , nnd with winter's cold
sapping one'o Hfo at every stop. Of
Bourse , if wo were to lose our ship ,
wo vrould make the effort to got there ,
but our chances of success would bo
extremely problematical.
The last entry in the record is
dated Dacember 31st , 1880 , and is as
follows : "Minstrels and ringing in
the now year in latitude 70 doaross ,
48 minutes north , longitude 177 do-
grnes , 32 minutes oast. Daring the
past sixteen months wo have drifted
1,300 miloa , far enough , If it had been
in a straight line , to carry us to and
beyond the polo , but wo are yet only
220 miles northwest from where wo
wcro first besot. Wo have Buffered
injury , and danger has often confron
ted us. Wo have been Equoezad and
jammed , tossed and tumbled. Wo
nave pumped the leaking ship for a
year , but wo are not yet daunted , and
are as ready to dare everything as we
ever were , nnd wo face the now year
firmly , hoping to do something worthy
of ourselves , of Bennett's enterprise
and of the flag above UB. "
In h si than ton months after those
words were written the Jeannette was
at the bottom of the Arctic ocean , and
DeLonc lay deed In the Lonu delta.

Special Dinpitch lo 711 * II m.
WASHINGTON , December 21) ) , On
motion of Senator Hoar the bill to
provide for the performance of duties
of president of the United States in
case of inability , or removal by death
or otherwise of the president or vice-
president was taken up. Discussion
of the bill continued until nearly 2
o'clock when unfinished bnoinesi , the
bill of for relief of Fitz John Porter
wan til-fn up , nnd Senator Logan ad-
dresied the senate.
Senator .Logan made an argument
la opposition to the bill , llo said hu
know it waa hard for mnators to have
to listen orery session lo long debates
upon this subject , but BO long as ho
had a place in the senate ho should
feel it bis duty to oppose this niowuro.
The bill proposed that congress should
review the action of the court martini
and determine whether its decision
was correct upon the law und facia.
If the decision of the ounrt murtitl wns
correct , congress certainly ought not to
put Potter back into the army. If the
decision was wrong congress undonbt
odly hnd a right to rolustato him the
arrmr , but ho still had no right to re
view thn action of a conrt martial ,
Senator lognn argued in oupport ol
his views horottfora announced ,
The Sholild board , which reviewed
the Portur casn , was without authority
of Uw. Gen. I'opo had beun criticised
f ji not having nppoarrd before thtt
baud If ho ( Ljgau ) had boon sub-
I tit jncd before it ho weald have de
clined to appear and would have lo !
the president know ho had no author
ity to constitute the board. In reading
ing their report ho found it dillioatt
to toll whether they were trying Porter
ter or Gen. Pope , but if showed
clearly they had not read the rcoord.
They said the order to attack sent
Porter waa nn order to attack Jack-
aon'a right ( link , though the order
Bttya nothing about Jackson but
directs an attack "on the right flu.'k"
or the roar of the ouomy , which waa
In fact commanded by Lsngotreot.
Gon. Grant had , fallen into the same
orvor. The board said also "Porter's
subordinate and wise conduct
that evening saved the union
army. " That meant that when
the whole confederate ferro except a
Tow brigades' waa uUacktng I'ouo's
32,000 men , Porter lyiujr by with
14,000 men with arms atauko t saved
kho union army. Saved it from whut ?
Not from being beaten , for it was
beaten. Upon this principle , if'the
whole union army had stacked arms
nobody would nato been hurt.
'Laughter.J The board wont upon
iho theory that the reports upon
which Ihu court martial convicted
Porter wcro those of the 30th of
Aug net instead of the 29th , and that
the confederate Generals Leo , Long-
atroat , Stuart and Roenor , should road
the 30th and not the 29th , &s they did
road. In fact no man familiar with
.ho caao could avoid the conclusion
; hnt the board paid no attention to
, ho evidence or that they per-
vurtcd and distorted it in every
losaiblo way. Bjards , like other
people were ail'iotod sometimes by
otraugo influences , and there wan a
curie ujfaot that ought to bo stated in
connection with this ono. At the time
the board organized Gen. McDowell
waa of ago to retire , and Gen , Pope waa
iho next ranking officer , but two of the
nombcra of ( ho board were applicants
'or the place. Of course , that did not
affect their jungmont in any way , yet ,
Htratigoto aay , up to tho1 time when
Popa wai nominated and confirmed ,
; here waa n constant war waged upon
lim with a view of breaking him down
BO somebody else should got the place
to which ho was entitled. Members
of the board , being honorable gentlo-
urtficould uofjof cotirsi > , hnve anything
; o do with this ; but as Popj waa nox
in the plac3 the attacks would prob-
ably.conso. In the attempt to make a
: i3e for Porter , every greit name ,
iving and dead waa "rung in , " and
it had been stated that
President Lincoln repented of
laving approved ot the finding
of the court martial and Intended
giving Porter a new trial. Lincoln
waa too good a lawyer not to know ho
had no power to grant a now trial aud
auto bm alleged ropentanca the best
evidence was the testimony of llobert
Lincoln that his father had talked
with him about the case and had said
that in hla opinion it was ono which
would have justified a sentence of !
death , The statement had boon made a
also that Gen. Garfield had repented
of his action as a member of the
court martial but it wae untrue , for as
late as February , 1880 , long after this
board had made ita report , Garfield
conversed with him ( Logan ) about the
case and was preparing a speech to bo
delivered in the house in opposition
to the relief bill , Ho had also written
a letter to General Cox , of Ohio ,
which Logan had road by the clerk ,
stating that he bad been BO stunned
by the decision of the Schofiold board
that ho could hardly trust hiraiolf
to speak of it aa It uppearud to
Returning from hi * digression Lo
gan aald : Ho had recently asked a
rceutlemau very high in the army , and
under whom ho had served in the west ,
what he thought would have been denote
to him ( Logan ) if ho had sent to his
commanding officer to move wagons out
of his way , and the distinguished gen
tleman had replied , "Well , I think
you would have been put en , to a dry
nurse. " [ Liughter ] But ono of the
worlca great military chiefs , ( Gon.
Grant ) , had naiU recently tlmr Porter
could not inovo buoauio the road waa
obitructod. That great commander ,
gan nald , hold a different opinion
upon the subject of unrolling
in splto of obsteolen when he led
our armica In the field , and in
support of this statement ho read
from Badeau's militaryhtutory several
instances of farced marches made or
ordered by General Grant , ono being
a case where the troops had had little
or no rest for a week , A friend now
sits before mo , said Iiogan , pointing
to Senator Miller , of California , who
marched ono rainy nh'ht with 6,000
men to oppose 00,000 , and hold them
there until a general could coino to
hla relief , [ Murmurs of applause , ]
Senator Hoar observed that Login
nnd General Grant did not agree a'i t
facts , and he wisnod to ascertain
whish person was correct. General
Grant's statement was that byctart-
ing at 3 instead of 1 , General Porter
ter could have had his man
at their destination by day
light in better condition for
service , and also that there was
but one narrow route , instead ot three
as stated by Logan , and that an atd
decamp who brought the order to
Porter was three houri on the way.
Senator Logan insisted that Ilia
statement waa sustained by the tzeti
mony in the caso. The trouble with
v . ral Grant's article waa that it did
not state tha f oti in the case.
Senator MoPhorson said General
Grant stated , as ono roison for favor-
Inv ; the pending bill , that n mounted
ollicor who brought the order to Gan *
oral Porter WAS three hours upon the
road in daylight , owing to Ita obitrut-
ted condition , and ho asked Logn'a
whether this was or HAB not the tlmo.
Senator Logon replied that if the
officer was 'hroa hears on the way It
waa probably because ho was not in a
hurry , as the order did not require
General Porter to march till one , and
Captain Djkay , who curiod it , arrived
at 9:30' : As to the statement referred
to by McPherson , that there wore
2,000 wugona on the reid , Logan said ,
every army man know it would bo impossible
possibleto put 2,000 wagons upon
uino miloj of ror.d.
Senator McPhornon Upon one of
those Virginia roadH 100 foot wide ?
Collator Logan Oh , then it waa a
bigger road thnn I thought It was ,
Senator McPhornon I think the
senate ought to correct his arithmetic
a littlo.
Senator Logan Now that is a
curloua phixso of this matter. It was
a big road for wagons and a little road
for men. [ Laughter. ] Senator Loijan
said further the evidence of a certain
captain who marched hift company a
loug road that night to Bristow
nation allowed there waa no obstruc
tion on it.
MoPhotaon Da I undoratand the
senator from Illinois ureters to believe
liovo the testimony of this captain ,
Whom ho does not name , rather than
the statement of General Grant. The
Utno ia not far gone when Grant's
testimony waa pretty good testimony
before the people of this country upon
my subject.
Senator Logan Now , Mr. Presi
dent , the senator can't get mo into any
quarrel with General Grant , and it
pomes with very bad grace from the
ionator to make the remark ho does
make in reference to tlio matter. I
! iavo said nothing disrespectful of
3onoral Grant. I have only said ho
ia mistaken in this case , and that the
evidence shows if , nnd when the senator
ator links whether I prefer to believe
lomobody else rather than General
Jrant , I answer I prefer to believe
the sworn statement cf men who
were on the ground.
McPherson Gen. Grant avers that
jidn. Porter wa3 entirely jnstlliod in
exorcising his ovrn judgment in thlo
matter , Douauso the order showa ho
waa not to take- part in any battle
when he arrived , but was only to
pursue a flying enemy.
Senator Logan The great military
, 'oniua of the senator from .Now Joraoy
overwhelm1 ? mo ; Porter was not to
obey an order to move because ho waa
not required to fight but merely to
pursue an enemy. How could ho
puratto an onumv if ho waa not there
bo pursue him'Liughter / [ ] How
could he pnrano au enemy if he did
not move towards him , or did not
novo at all ? As to Gon. Grant's
letter , I have answered It In a letter
vnd leave * ' the country to judge
who has the beat foundation
aa to his opinion. I will merely say
now that any senator wno-will uocopt
the statement of a president , king or
captain , not based upon testimony
rather than his own judgment is a
nan whoso judgment does not operate
[ or itself , and if you wish to got hii
lodgment upon any subject you mnnt
isk.not him , but the man that makes
lira think BO. I am not that kind of
i man. If you want to know what I
believe ask mo. If you want to know
what you believe ask Grant. [ Laugh
ter ]
Senator Logan's argument waa
listened to attentively throughout by
thu aonato And by the uudlonco who
filled every ecat in the galleries.
At 4 o'clock , not having concluded
iis opoech , Senator Lqgau yielded to
nution fjr an executive Buaslon.
Whun thu doors reopened the aunato

Tbo HUCCOBB of Last NiRht'a Enter-
talnment at Max Moyor'd
Musio Hall.
The concert given by the Phlloma-
.hoan club last night at Max Meyer's
music hall is pronounced the most
strictly classical ono over given in
Dmahu , and ono in which every num-
aor , without exception , waa of the
lighoat order of compmition.
Omaha ia fortunate in ita possession
of an unusual number of musical
artista , and the Harmonic aocloty ,
31eo club and Phllomathoana have allen
on compoaod of musicians of whom
any city might well bo proud.
The nudiunco which assembled last
evening waa ono able to judge Intelli
gently of the character of the inter
pretations' of the great masters , and
their verdict waa moat flattering to
those who have labored so conscien
tiously to elevate this "greatest of
orb" ill Omaha.
The programme , which has already
been pnbliohod , included but nix num
bers , two of Baothovon'a symphonies ,
two Boluotlona from llaydon and ono
From Oherubini , with a vocal quar
tette , "Tho Lullaby of Lifeby
LOB Ho. The latter waa well rendered
by Miasoa Mlnnio Maul and Lizzie
Ponnoll and Messrs. Eugene 'West-
volt and Thomas J. Ponnol.
The quartette for strings by Chora-
bini , a very dlflicult composition , waa
civon with fine cflcct , and , judging
from the enthusiastic applause , waa
moat satisfactory to the audience ,
The most popular performance of
the nvoning wan the trio for piano ,
violin and cello , participated in by
Prof , Mayer , 8. Hoffmann and B ,
Xjrkowsky , the latter gentleman
proving himself a master of the
oello and attracting moro than
ordinary notice in his part of the trio ,
Mr , Mayor's skill waa also the object
of especial pralso ,
The performance ) of Beethoven's
seventh symphony by Mimes Popple-
ton and llustm and Moisra. Calm and
Mayor on two pianos was a surprise
to thoflo who understood the nature of
the great composition , and waa highly
commended ,
The Philomatheanj give ono moro
subscription concert at the eamo hall ,

SUCCCS3 Is no longer doubtful ,
