A number of bills were reported favorabl' '
by several committees. Just about this tlm
it was noticed that there was a larg
number of absentees and about th
same time the desire to loaf insteai
of working seemed to take possession of i
number of those present. They Indulged ii
a series of motions to adjourn , on both side
of which some of the sportive youths ralsei
their voice. It was soon discovered that :
secret attempt was being made to revive th

to signalize the discomfiture which the autl
libellers were sustaining In the discovery o
their same. At length the house was scducci

In addition to the scheming carried on b
certain members for the purpose of movln

claimed tlm attention of some of tbo men

was apparent that but little would or could b

of the restlessness of the members. This le

commented upon and marvelled at. Th

No Changes of Importance in Financial
A Itemnrkably Stcndy Feeling Prevails
vails In the Produce Markets
Knntorn Merchant * Ilcplcn-
lilting Their Stocks.
TlioVcek In the Commercial M oriel ,
CIIICAOO , March 20. [ Special Telegram t (
tholtan.l There have been no very Import
ant changes to note in financial affairs thl !
week. Locally there is quite a good demand
for money and largely of n miscellaneous
character. Among speculators there was
loss borrowing than during the previous wcoli
or two , as trading has been smaller , and
there 1ms no doubt been a moderately free
settlement of contracts in articles whlcl
have been subjected to n "squeeze , " consequently
quently considerable money has been re
leased. This , however , has had no particu
lar effect on the money market , as the monov
was deposited as mnrgtus with the banks
and therefore wns merely transferred on the
books i Still , there Is a largo amount 01
money tied up on contracts for wheat , corn
pork , lard and short ribs sides , but that nc
doubt will bo gradually released during the
coming tivo weeks. Bather more currcncj
was forwarded to the Interior during the p.isl
thice or four days , as shippers ol
grain and produce are anxious te
forward all the property thoj
can before ? Itho new inter-state
commerce law takes effect. The same con
clltlon ot affairs exists In the wholesale mer
cantile trade , and Interior merchants are en
forging their stocks materially before the advance -
vance In freights under the now order of af
fairs. The lumber Interest is a moderate bor
rower at the banks , as Is usually the cas'e
about the season of the opening of lake navi
gations. Bankers ore well supplied with
loanable funds and borrowers who are able te
present satisfactory collaterals or endorse
ments succeed In obtaining all the favors re
quired. Kates of Interest are well main
talncd at 0 per cent on call and G@S per ccnl
on time loans , and It Is understood that onlj
largo sums can ba obtained at Inside figures ,
Outside paper Is not much in favor and verj
little. Is accepted oven at S per cent On the
street there Is more doing and rates are firm
at 7(33 ( per cent. The New York money mar
kct Is reported steady at a good demand foi
money at about former rates of interest The
Boston money market has gradually grown
closer , and considerable stringency prevails ,
Abroad the leading financial market !
show no material change. Loanable funds
appear to be plenty , with no partlctilai
increase in the demand for money. The
Bank of England rate of discount tins been
reduced to 3 per cent New York exchange
was In fair supply , and the demand only
moderate. Kates were a trifle irregular and
sales were made between banks at ( X@fcC )
cents discount per 81,000 and closed quiet at
cents. Foreign exchange was in
better request during the past week and of
ferings were not quite so large. The mar
ket was stronger and rates ruled higher.
Shippers' sixty days documentary bills on
London changed hands at 4S2@483 % and
closed steady at 4S3X4S3 % . The New York
stock market exhibited very little life during
the past week and the volume of business
transacted was smaller than for several
weeks past. The uncertainties regarding
the Baltimore & Ohio combination ha ? had a
tendency to clie.ik trading , as operators have
been waiting tor a consummation of the
the project , with a view of making It the
leader tor the upward movement In all leadIng -
Ing stocks. Chicago operators have trans
acted very little business in
stocks during the week , as the
fluctuations In prices were not Hiifllcient to
attract speculative attention , and no features
-weie presented to Induce even oidinary trad
ing. In a general way the market has ruled
comparatively steady and changes in prices
were confined within rt narrow range , with
very few exceptions. Outside operators ap
pear to be neglecting the stock market and
the usual heavy operators In eastern financial
centers are not inclined to do much trading
at present. The Intcr-stato commerce law
will eo Into effect April 5 , and the effect of
the now order of things on the leading rail
road lines will be watched with considerable
interest Sales on the New Yoik stock ex
change for the week reached only 1,000,000
shares. The produce markets attracted very
little attention during the week. A remark-
aoly steady feeling prevailed throughout , and
fluctuations In prices were confined within a
very limited range. Small operators as n
general rule wore not Inclined to trodo. Or
ders from outside parties , cither to purchase
or soil , were lighter than usual , and leading
operator ! ) were disposed to throw their
weight on either si J of the market or create
Influences tending to change the quiet con
dition ot affairs. The unelcrtone to the mar
kets generally suggests considerable timidity
among operators fearful that the market maybe
bo controlled by combinations quietly made ,
and prices suddenly advanced or declined.
Besides tlio capital locked up In margins is
flufflcient to reduce the working facilities of
many leading firms without seeking financial
ivwistance from banks , and they do not feel
warranted In paying high rates of interest
nnd taking risks under the present circum
stances. The shipping trade is Improving ,
nnd no trouble Is experienced in disposing of
nuiet liberal receipts of grain and produce.
Merchants In the eastern markets are re
plenishing their stocks while the present
rates of freights can bo obtained. The re
ceipts of grain and provisions were moder
ately largo and shipments quito liberal. For
eign markets have not developed
nuv particular elements of strength
and eastern markets have not shown much
activity In a speculative way , though the ex
port business has been well maintained. The
airlvals of livestock wore moderately free.
Packing In the west Is giadually gaining and
is somewhat In excess of the returns ot last
year to date. The stocks of ( rain and pro
visions are being gradually reduced. The
former are larger and the latter are smaller
than last year at this time. Petroleum was
Inclined to quietness during the past week.
Outside operators are not Inclined to do
much and fluctuations In prices were slight.
No features were presented to attract trad
ing. Sales on the New York petroleum ex
change reached 5,48(5,000 ( barrels. The open
ing sales were umilo at file , sold
and closed rather quiet

All day yesterday strenuous cflbrto were
made to raise the leviathan , but without
success. A tup boat has been engageel
to tow the whale around IMontauk tc
Promise Land as soon as it rises , in ordci
to secure the blubber and bone.
When the whale was first struck bj
Cnptam Johathan Edwards it lashed the
sea , and with n blow of its tail broke in
two the boat , commanded bj
Captain Charles Edwards. All
the crew were rescued except
Captain Charles Edwards. The boat *
could not approach him owing to the furj
of the monster. The captain , who is an
expivt swimmer , succeeded in diving
under the whale's belly. He came up on
the other side just beside the whale's
nose. In sliccr desperation , nothing else
bcincin reach , he seized the whale bj
the lip and hung there until the monster
sank , when he loosened his hold nnd waa
taken into one of the boats. The boats
that wont out were commanded by Capt

Jackson's Inauguration.
When Jackson was inaugurated his
numerous friends were determined to
give him a public reception upon
his entrance into the district.
They therefore watched his pro
gress. Finally it was reported that
ho had arrived at Fredericktown , in
Maryland. Nothing further was heard
from him , and there WHS considerable
doubt as to his movements. His friend ,
John A. Eaton , who was n senator from
Tennessee , learned that ho would reach
Rockville on the 20th , and , keeping his
own counsel , ho went to that village in a
private conveyance , and there meeting
the general , quietly escorted h.m to this
city. Some pieces of orelnanoc were sta
tioned on the Heights of Georgetown to
welcome the president-elect and to an
nounce his arrival to the citizens. The
streets were thronged with expect
ant citizens , but as the day wore on
and ho did not come there
was great uncertainty. General John V.
Van Ness , tlio chairman of the central
committee mounted his horse and rode
toward Georgetown to learn , if possible ,
something definite. When on Pennsyl
vania avenue , near Georgetown , ho met
the carriage of General Eaton and saw
General Jackson sitting by his side. The
carriage had passed the men in charge of
the guns without their knowing that it
contained the president-elect , and so the
salute was not tired. General Van Ness
rode along by the carriage' , and the entire -
tire party proceeded to the National hotel ,
where thousands of the citizens repaired
and offered their congratulations. ( Son-
oral Jackson was inaugurated on the 4th
of March' , on the eastern portico of the
capitol , in the presence of 40,000 people.
The president-elect walked from his quar
ters at the hotel to the capitol , whore he
took the oath of ollieo and road his in-
inaugural Ho then mounted a
horsennd roilo to the executive mansion ,
hat in hand , his head towerinc ever the
heads of the throng , and the air resound
ing with shouts ami plaudits ot the multi
tudes that lined the streets.
