In the senate to-day Mr. Van Wyck called up and passed his bill affecting real and per sonal property held by defunct national banking Institutions. It Is a measure of very general Importance , and will likely secure an early passage in the house. It provides that wherever a receiver of a national bank findn It necessary In his opinion , in order to fully protect and benefit his trust to the ex- lent of any equities that such trust may have In any property , real or personal , by reason of any bond , mortgage , assignment or other legal and proper claim attaching thereto , and which said proieity | Is tobo sold under any execution , decree of foreclosure , or proper order of any court of jurisdiction , he may certify the facts In the case together with his opinion as lo the state of thu prop erty Iob3 so sold and the value of thu equity Ills trust may havu in the same , to thu comptroller ot currency , together with a re quest for right and authority to use and cm- ploy so much of the money of thu trust as may lientc.'ssary to purchase .such property at such safe , and with the approval of the comptroller of currency and tlio secretary of the treasury he may draw upon .such funds as may be In his custody or deposited with the treasurer of Ihe United States for the purpose of which the allowance was made. This will elve receivers of national banks an oppoitunlty to protect real and personal property belonging to their trust from sac- rllieo by forced sale. Senalor Van Wyck said to the Dun correspondent pendent this evening that the bill ho Intro- troduccd yesterday to confirm entries of lands heretofore made under thu land laws of the United States was Intended to , and doubt less would , settle whatever dispute there may be between settlers and the general land olllco growing out of a reversion or different interpretation of the laws and rulings by the administration , and promulgated by other administrations. It would , too , quiet any fear that the settlers may havu In thu future on account of changes of administration. Mr. Van Wyck intends to glvo this measure personal attention , and believes It will be come a law. It provides that any entry here tofore made under the land laws of the United States , in conformity with thu rules , regulations and decisions of llio general land oil lee and Interior department at the time such entry was made , is confirmed to the extent , and shall bu perfected and pro ceed to patent the samu as if tlio rules , regu lations and decisions had not been reversed or modified ; provided , that such entry must have been made in good faith , and no charges of fraud have been made against tlio samc.and In casoanycharjrcs of fraud have been made , they shall bo investigated In the same manner ami wltli the same effect as if the rules , regulations and decisions under which the entry was made had not been modified or reversed.

No "chestnuts" 'or thu dririnmcr. There is no event snf- iuiuntto cast a gloom over Ids lifu save Jiaf' only of failure to get an order , but this is quickly dispelled , and his samples ire again exposed to the view of the rural merchant. An order is secured , and he is oil for new fluids to conquer. Uel'oro starting "on the road" it is necessary to have a complete route laid out , with the , names of towns and customorri to bo visited. These are pre pared , thu .sample trunks packed and the drummer listens toyords of advice from the "old man , " which usually consist of remarks about cutting down expenses. These admonitions , however , rest lightly on the drummer's sonl.and with a pocket full of inoiiuy and a bundle of mileage tickets ho is on' . Ho takes a seat in the train and iu duo time arrives at his lirst town and immediately prepares for business. His samples are spread out in the hotul sample-room , and ho goes out to find his man. If he succeeds in getting the merchant into the den where his goods are on exhibition the order is in variably secured , and no ono is moro surprised than ho who gives it , because ho was positive before the drummer met him that his stouk was complete and nothing was needed. The drummer is a happy individual , lie i.s at homo everywhere. Ho is great on flirtations , and no time is regarded lost spent in talking lo a pretty girl. Ho carries on his shoulders the burden of his house , yet llio weight has not thu ef fect to depress his spirits. Hu has confi- donee iu hi.s ability and knows the coun try demands his goods , which ho is bound to sell. Thu holul is his house and his castle hi.s homo. He knows ovury room , and as ho writes hi.s munu on the register tells the cleric which one ho pro- furs. Ho always puts up at the. best , and is on terms of intimate acquaintance with everybody , from the landlord down to the bell-boy. The drummer la usually a good player at billiards , whist , and "old sludgu , " while very row have n bettor idea of the valiio of a "full hand" than ho. Hu somulimes make * up liis mind to improve hi * time by read ing , and turns over a "now loaf , " csehuw- ing all such vanities and expensive amusements as billiards and poker , but the chances tire the next evening finds him iu company with some Kindred spir its , playing n "bob-tail" with such uwsur- unco us to win n jack-pot which had been opuncil by a timid individual with three queens. Sometimes , however , it happen * unit tlio iieklo goddess has not been good to him , and it requires considerable llg uring to balance expense account. Uu lucky , indeed , must thu cards run for him if hu uau't even things up in his monthly statement to the house , And old travelers ors have noticed that the drummer win is unlucky at poker usually soils the most goods. This Iu because un expense , no- count will easily pass scrutiny at "tin houso" if it is accompanied bv largo or dcrs.

Mr. lllddlcbergcr offered the folloxvlng resolution elution : llcsolvcd , Thatlt Is the sense of the senate that the executive of thu United States Is not restricted by constitutional law In re moving or the suspension of appointees ; that thu senate has no right to require that reasons shall be given for such removals or suspension ; that it I.s thu right of the scnato to call for any paper relating to thu conduct of removed or suspended appointees , or as to the qu.ililicatloii ami fitness of nil persons whoso names are presented to the senate for confirmation or rejection ; and It is the duty of the executive to comply with all demands for the same. In offering the resolution , Mr. Kiddlcbcr- gcr said his purpose was simply to bring it up in open debate. It did not involve any so-called hluh prerogative of the senate xvhen t should go Into secret or executive session , ml only that abstract question as to whether ho executive could be called on or required o give reasons for removals. Mr. Kiddle- tergcr asked for Immediate consideration of , ho resolution. Mr. Cockerel objected. Mr. I'nuh said he would submit either to- ilay or to-morrow a substitute for Mr. Klddle- wger'i ? resolution. Mr. Stanford offered a concurrent resolu tion , which was agreed to , providing for an investigation by the committee on public buildings into the charges made in 1853 and now being renewed against the otliclal con duct of Samuel Strong during Ids superintendent tendent- public buildings. Mr. Van Wyek called up and had passed his bill , reported favorably from the finance committee , permitting receivers of banks to nsu such funds of the bank as may liax-o already been covered into the treasury , when such use may be necessary in order to protect the interests of creditors of the bank. The bill authorizes the receiver to see that bank prouorty about to bo sold by order of court shall not be sold for lens than its value. . Mr- Morgan's.'resolutionregarding tlio trustee8pro.vided ih' the Mormon bill-was then placed before tlio senate. Mr. Allison thought It inconsistent with the provisions of the bill named. Mr. Ingalls moved Its reference to the idlclary comniitte'o. Mr , Morgan 'contended that according to [ ho precedent set bv the hill every church organization in the United States was likely at any time to have trustees for its manage ment appointed b.v congress. Mr. Ingalls' motion was agreed to and the resolution was referred. * Mr. 1'ugh submitted the substitute already referred to by him to take the place of Jlld- dlebcrger's resolution , and asked that it bo presented and lie over till to-morrow. Mr. Pugh's substitute is substantially as follows : 1 That executive power is expressly vested IV ) the constitution In the president of the United States so that he shall take care that the laws bo faithfully executed. 3 That thu power of appointment to fede ral office Is an executive noxrer to bo exer cised by the president , under the limitation In the constitution , that hu .shall nominate , and by and witli the advice and consent of the senate , shall appoint. U That the poxvcr of removal or suspen sion from the poxvcrs and duties of federal ollice is also an executive poxvcr , vested ex clusively in the president , xvlthout any such limitation In the constitution as Is imposed thereby on the iioxver of appointment , and for its exercise he is responsible alone to the people and not to the senate. 4 That the right of the president to make nominations to the .senate , and of the senate to advisu and consent thereto , aru each sep arate and independent rights , to bo exercised by Ihu president and tlio xenatu respectively ami separately , and Independently within thulr absolute discretion ; butin relation to the person or persons so nominated , the senate may request information of thu president af- Icutlng thu character or qualifications of those as to whoso appointment ho asks the advlco and consent ot thuKcnalc. 3 5 That when the president makes nomina tions to the senate of persons to ho ap pointed by him to exercise the powers and duties of federal ofllccg , who have been rc- mox'od or suspended by him , no law , public duty or public policy requires that ho shall smul or communicate to thu senate any rea son for making Mich removals or suspensions , and no law , public duty or public policy re quires or authorizes tlio senate to calf for such Information existing In any such form from the president or any member of his cab inet , to enabio thu scnato to review or ques tion the action of thupiesldeiit in exercising his executive , discretionary and exclusive poxvcr of lemovlng or suspending federal otilccrii from thu powers and dntius of their olllcos , or to put tlio president on trial by thu senate , or to enforce accountability to the senate for anything hu may havu donu in tliu oxerelRo of such jurisdiction. 0 That to obtain information considered by either house of congress useful In passing , necessary and proper laxvs , either house of congicss may request the president , If not deemed by him incompatible with public In terest , to glvu any information within his knoxvledgu relating to thu administration of any public ollleo , or Ihu official conducts or act's affecting thu official conduct or duties of any public officer , but for the .senate to make such request nf the president , or to direct any member of his cabinet to transmit to thu senate any information In open or executive session to enable Ihu senate in open or executive .session to revlcxv the propriety , 01- reason , or Information upon which hu acted , or may havu acted , In making removals orhUHpensions , would bo an attempt to obtain such information by false pa-tenses , and for usus and purposes not authorized or justified by any laxv or public policy of thu United States , and should thu presi dent grant such request or require any member jo his cabinet to obey such direction from the senate when deemed by him to bo made for such unjusti fiable and unlawful uses and purposeswould be to rec.ognl/o and enconragu an impropei practice and an Injurious Innovation upon his exclusive and Independent rlu'hts , poxvert and duties as president of the United States Mr. Hoar Inquired xvhethcr the request tr print included the printing of thu stum ) speech in thu bully ot the resolution , Mr. Ingallo gave notice that when the or iKlnul and substitute resolution should conu up to-morro\vlio would move to luferthcm u the committee on privileges and elections foi further consideration.

This communication should show the names of the persons elected or appointed ns electors , and what votes had been cast for such persons respectively.

J The custom of ordering a copy of cacffi newspaper published In thu territory for cachl member led to the Introduction of a icsolu tlon to this cITect early In thu session. TlliJJ argument over It has occupied a good doa.1 op valuablotlmu In both bodies of the leclsloV lure , and It was thought to be llnally boltlcu last Thursday , when a conference committee report against taking any of the papers was made and accepted1 , by both houses , but on Friday Mr. Dcloney , of the council , who had been rusticating at Pueblo during the week , re turned , and about the llrst thing ho did waste to bob up serenely with a notice of another resolution ordering the papers. The Held Is therefore to be fought over again. The total ox ; pensnsof the papers would not bomoio thail' SliO , ) and the time which has been consumed , It would seem , In debating the advisability of taking them , Is worth more than that. .Mr. Mcl'ortnlck has Introduced a bill for the construction of a jail at HulValo. Two bills having in view tlto construction of a court house at Sundance , Crook county , were Introduced slmillaiieously In the house and council on the 27th. The bills provide for bonding the county for § 23,000. By the provisions of a bill now before the house , county commissioners will bo authorized to appoint one or more officers whose duty It shall be to tm that the game laws are enforced. Such ofllccrs shall bo authorized to arrest violators of the law anil take them before tiie nearest justice of the peace. Their pay shall be So per day for the actual time they aio to be engaged , this- , amount embracing expenses. Uy far the most Important fact connected with this legislature Is one" which probably will never appear upon the surface of. the proceeding.1 ! . This is that the Wyoming Stock 0rowers * association will not occupy the greater portion of the time of the sesslo.il with bills Intended to afford it financial as sistance. This has como about In a way which , under the circumstances , Is somewhat peculiar. For some wcels It has been knowp that the stock association contemplated lld' | introduction of bills which would appropriate in the aggregate about $25,000 out of the tcrt'j ' ritorlal treasury. One of the items to be pal * j for was the quarantine yards at this city , I constructed last year at a cost of & 12,000 | As soon as Mr. Teschemacher's bill providing for repeal of the law of 1834 , which gave Cheyenne the licenses from the saloons an4 - gaming tables ( about § 18,000 annually ) , and ] the effect of which would be to lighten thotiup on the slock interests In the county to tfiac extent , appcared , the papers of this city Im mediately contained significant editorial utterances. The Sun was the lirst to .speak , ; and it declared in unmistakable terms that the statute books contained all the legislation ' , which embraced appropriations In tavor o ? the stock association that the territory could reasonably stand. A meeting of the execu tive committee of the association was called and the editor of the Sun was sent for. The Interview was brief and to the point , and the executive committee was Informed that the Sun would declare war on any measure whlcfi looked toward the expenditure .of moro money for any of the association's 'purposes. The executive committee deliberated und decided that : iu attempt to force legislation would be too big n contract and , In consef ijucnco , only one bill is to bo introduced , and , that is an amendment of the maverick law ; The substance of It will bo that the maverick * will bo sold at the end of every day tfl the highest bidder lor cash or n certified check. A bill Is being progressed as fast as possible which provides for the encouragement of treo' planting. It will probably become u law after being amended , and will allow a rediuv tlon In the assessment of a man's property of 5100 for every aero of crowing forest trees not more than fifteen feet apart , and 8200 for every acre of fruit trees not moro than tnlrty feet apart. Three voluminous mining hills have been Introduced. Ono provides for the appoint- mnnt of a coal mine Inspector at1,000 pay per annum , and requires the accurate weighing of coal as mined. Another provides that the territory shall pay § 1,000 to thu widow and 5500 to each o the chlldicn of u miner killed by a Urn damp explosion , and then shall recover the amount fiom thu company owning thu mines. A third is by Mr. Kuno , of Fremont county , and especially applies to the location mid woiklng of mineral lodes. A bill Is before the house defining the boundaries between Johnson county and Crook , and Johnson and Albany. It Is probable that ; v bill creating Ihe oflKje of tunitorlal geologist and mining engineer will fall to pass. It will receive but luke warm assistance irom the Luramio county delegation , as the ollicn Is not believed to beef of any practical benefit , ami the money can bo used to belter advantage eluinvheiv.
