Ho began with a burst of patriotism and said that although on this July 4 there worn conditions which produced uneasiness , yet there were still many things of which to boast. But.they had not all they wanted. If there was uneasiness , un certainty , stagnation of trade , It could bo charged up to the icpubllcnn party , Iho laws which brought about these conditions , were republican laws , [ enacted against the protests of democrats , but they-should ba thankful that by the votes of _ the people last Novem ber the democratic party had sot up house keeping at Washington on behalf of the nation. When congress assembled on August 7 , as far as things could bo remedied by leg islation , ho was confluent that laws would bo enacted which would restore confidence and bring prosperity again to the nation. Congressman Benton McMillan of Tetiuos- see came next. His speech bristled with patriotic epigrams and references to Thomas Jefferson and was punctuated by the explo sion ol fireworks. The next speaker was Congressman Clark of Missouri. The speech was of the post prandial order , and excited lots of fun. Kloiiucnt Mr ; IVUinvH. Congressman John R. Fellows of Now York followed. His was the irfost eloquent speech of the day , brimful of glowing seutl- monts and of smooth and easy diction. He dwelt upon the meaning of the celebration. Ho mndo no reference to current politics , but ended by sayintr that n mightier hand than any human hand had inspired the Declara tion of Independence and guided the nation in its future destiny. The men of the continental congress were among the purest that ever existed. No taint or suspicion spoiled thsir hands and in that lay-lieir great measure of success. France , when she undertook to overthrow tyranny , set up anarchy nnd failed. And still , ho said , tyranny and despotism were over to bo pre ferred to communism nnd anarchy. And that the country with its hospitality was not broad enough for those foreigners who coir.o hero to disturb the fabric uf our laws.

Consequently the struggle between the rioters and the police Is assuming a savage character. The police strike with energy aud the mauifostants strike hack with violence. Ono policeman was tied hand and foot and almost killed before ho was rescued. The omnibuses were stopped and unlmr- ncsscd at Go'elock in the Place St. Gorman Deprcs , where u violent struggle took place and the pollco were forced to charge in order to disperse the mob. The ovonlng has been an excited ono throughout the cntiro Latin quarter , wiilcli is now completely occupied by the polico. The circulation of all vehicles has been stopped and all the shops are closed. Along the boulevards and in all parts of the city lying on the right bank of the Sclno there is no sign of any disorder. Itcculnr Pitched Itnttlc. After G o'clock last evening the struggle between the police and the rioters assumed a more serious character and a regular pitched battle was fought on the Boulevard St. German. The newspaper kiosqucs and the chalets do nccesslto were smashed or overturned. Thirty omnibuses and tram way cars were stopped and upset. At every point wiring stones and plaster were thrown at the policemen , who defended themselves with drawn sabers. Many persons on both sides were wounded. After an interlude the battle began again at 10 o'clock with greater fierceness than over. The mob pot the best of the police , whereupon the mounted munlclp.il guard charged , but without succeeding in dispers ing tlio crowd until the Cuirassiers and a regiment of the line arrived upon the scene. It was , however , unneccessnry for these troops to take any active part in the struggle. At present all is quiet on the left bank of the river , but that part of the city has the appearance of a town taken by assault , as all the thoroughfares are guarded by troops. There are very serious symptoms indicat ing that trouble may breakout this evening at Bclloyillo und at the Place Plgullo on the exterior boulevards. All is quiet on the other side of the city. The interment of Nougcr will take place tomorrow at 7 o'clock in the morning. In political circles much dissatisfaction at the action of the government exists and if the disorders continuo for another twenty-four hours Parliament may overthrow the min istry. M. Lozo , the prefect of police , has not yet resigned. Ho and the municipal council are not in agreement as ; to what should bo done to put an end to the trouble. LATEST TKOUlILi ; .
