2 WASHINGTON. A Slodol United States .TTiadtVC. Sketch of a “Metropolitan” Preacher. A Recapitulation of Abuses—News- Paper Gossip—Aid to Kansas. From Our Oirn Cormpomknf, Washington, April W, 1873. What do you think of a Judge of a United fllntos District Court who will begin a letter in thio ignorant and unfeeling way ? I commend it to tho Bclwccn-Fuddlcs, which Is dangerously ad dicted to the same kind of rhetoric : JUDor/fl Room, United States Court, 1 Northern District op Ohio, > CiiF-vcuANi), March 27,1873.) Dear Sir J I wrote you yesterday, ou my return from an abftouco of some time, In too feoblo my feelings as regards ttio death of your father. Yet, an tho mortal moves ou, so. though wo never shall for get him, yet business must be attended to. This letter is signed 0. T. Sherman. This man is a Judge, God save the mark 1 Ho is a dangerous instance of tho brother-in-law prin ciple in Government. His brother, John Sher man, animated by the selfish policy which de grades public life in our lime, had him made a Judge, although ho was by character and habits a clalm-bummor. Tho illustrious services of his brother William mode only moro conspicuous tho ignorance and incapacity of this Judge Sherman. Tho last Congress, with all Its imperfections, would have impeached him promptly but for a generally-diffused belief that tho family influ ence would compel his resignation after tho re cess. Tho man has tho impudence to ho pub lishing cards in tho obsequious journals, asking for a stay of public opinion, aud particularly amongst writers, iu tho faco of tho disclosure of such epistolary performances as tho following: Judge’s Rooms, United States Court, I Northern District op Ohio, L Cleveland. Jan. 20, 1873.) Dear Sir : I have about come to tno conclusion Hint you have been unsuccessful In bringing those par ties to terms In regard to my compcusallon for services Inst winter ot ■Washington. If such Is your conclu . alou, please advlao mo, I go to Washington in a week or ten days, and do result of your ollorts may bear upon my action while there upon tho Interests of those gentlemen. Lot mo hear from you on tho subject at your earliest conven ience. Tho proposed action of tho Government In relation to tho stockholders of tho Credit Mobilier , of whom your father was ono, may result In a claim npou tho estate. I, however, think it will not. 13ut bo Arm, and say and do nothing. I will ascertain what Is chimed, and what is proposed to be done, nud will ad viao you at tho proper time. Very truly, 0. T. Sherman. Le Grand Lockwood, Esq. Tbo Supremo Court bag boon fully canvassed for an opinion as to Sherman’s coao, and every Judge ou tbo Bench denounces him an unfit to bo tbo occupant of an official position. DR. NEWMAN. What kind of man is Dr. Newman?— bo writes one of my fairest correspondents. This I know because sho curled her capitals, and blacked her eyes, and loft a perceptible odor of now-mown hay in the half-sheet of fools-cap. Thrifty goddess, behold tho Doctor 1 Ho is a lusty follow to wrestle with angels, and would break down Jacob’s ladder if ho sot bis foot on it to climb to Heaven. Ho weighs upwards of 200 pounds, and his hips, thighs, back, and belly aro adapted to tight at tho doors of fairs on froo-admiaeioudays. A certain kind of oil is resident in his akin, which oozes out in that gracious sort of porfumo peculiar to people of professional holiness. His hair is of a lino brown color, worn long, and his features are largo, effective, and without sensi bility. Broad-shouldered, of good height, woll drosecd in bluo broadcloth, with a flash of gold somewhere about his watch-fixings, and for wardness, worldlincss, and visible goUUluoss all over him,—such is tho hyperbole of a preacher. Tho clerical oil'ico is, upon occasion, tho most needful and healing which man can fill. It brings tho oil of balm into tho households of pooplo bereaved, and, when physio is dono, doctors tho mind and heart. Tho blessed fellow ship of a true man in fho ministry how well wo know who have felt his hand upon us, saying, “My brother, take heart! There is a higher life than this.” For the sake of this groat remedial and refining ofllco, and to protect it against prosumers, tho press of tho country has, almost with unanimity, condemned tho whole course of ostentatious and Intriguing procedure of Dr. Newman. At tho centennial celebration of American Mnchodiimi, it was resolved to erect at Washing ton City a church with a grand Latin title of tho Metropolitan,—a word which much reminds us of tho Homan phraso of tho Metropolitan Seo. To accord with this ambitions cditico, a Metro politan preacher was demanded. lie enmo to bis work with tho ambition and un scrupulous assumption of a Jesuit,—which word I uoe in its critical sense, for come of my ac quaintances aro members of tho Jesuit order, mid havo much more humility than Dr. Now man. The now clergyman immediately sot to work to depopulate tho neighboring churches. Ho took off tho Chief Justice from Wesley Ohnpal; and Mr. Colfax, who was possessed with tho Presidency, came over from tho First Presbyterian. The building was domineered over by a noisy chime of bolls. Tho tower, which had boon begged by one of tho sisters from an old gentleman at Baltimore, was osten tatiously inscribed Kelso’s Spiro. The interior was adorned with cedar of Lebanon and ahittim wood, hauled froo from Jerusalem. Tho preacher appeared to begrudge tho cboir all ibo time they spent singing, and wanted to do Ibo whole per formance himself. Ho gob himself speedily elected Chaplain of tho Senate, and the amount of elo cution whioh he did on week-days was stupen dous for to seo. His sermons wero of tho most modern character, with a Mansard roof on top, and a mortgage in tho roar. Ho charged them with assumption like a vase of soda-water. To day ho thundered at the nowpapor press, and tho next clay covered President Grant with oil in tho midst of a prayer to.lohovah. Ho instruct ed tho Scunto us to its duty, asked tho Lord to give simplicity of wisdom to tho Chief Justice, and alluded to tho equinoctial storm as tho booming “simoom.” Determined to bo made a Dishop, ho undertook cilice-brokering for tho brethren,—some of whom, bo it said, would rathor collect tuxes for Orcsar .than bo gate keepers in tho houso of tho Lord; and, at this point, tho chief fugleman of tho Metropolitan Seo got into nowapapor-corrosnondouco. Ho fastened upon Fronldont Grant like a horso-loech,—this term ecoms to bo appropriate both to tho looch and tho horse,—and, skimming tbo horizon for a point of sensation, tho llovorond Doctor con cluded to convert tho Mormons. Properly ad vertised, ho moved in caravan upon those de voted pooplo. His march across tho country re sembled that of a menagerie, and all tho animals, from tbo monkoy to tho alligator, wore repre sented in this grand transcontinental fantasy. Of course ho made religion ridiculous, and added to old Orson Pratt’s Biblical conceit. Failing to accomplish anything, Mr. Newman returned to Washington, and, with unparalleled meanness; proceeded to oporato upon tho Government and have tho Mormons persecuted. 2fo has been routed in his insidious and auda cious attempts to bo made a Bishop. His in fluence in Congress has como to bo less than zero. Ills endeavors to keep tho Metropolitan Church, to tho prejudice of tho general rule which limits a Methodist preacher to throe years’ local occupation, has boon so tar a failure that I am told Bishop Bimpson expressed bis disgust; and Dr. Tiffany, a later incumbent, war bo an noyed by Newman’s attempt to undormino him that ho compelled the Trustees, about one month ago, to put tno question to vote before tho eon- Sation, and every soul in the houso stood up put a llnul quietus upon this ambitious clerical demagogue. Newman thou retreated into politics, and bogged from President Grant tho sinecure ottlce called Inspector of Consulates. His wife was appended to the appointment, under tho name of M. F. Newman, with an additional salary. Bucli has boon tho career of a man with plen tiful talents and no humility. Ho is irrepressi ble, and plenty of churces would bo glad to got him; but it is respectfully submitted to the Board of Bishops that ho lacks tho sense to turn this Government into a timocracy. Hin hoftand girth would justify him in applying for the Hor goaatcy-at-anas, where ho might cumo near enough to the example of 6t. Polor to out off- tho High Priest’s our. A REVIEW OP JOBBERY. Tho public mind la at last exorcised on thosub joot of Bohoraiug aud jobbery. Tho Credit Mobltlor Investigation accomplish ed what many years of unthanuod agitation and challenge failed to do. It reached such eminent reputations, and inado such general wreck of political prospects and accomplishments, that ovenr clrbb of citizens.—oven those who camo to Boon,— remained beside tholr Capitol to pray. This was tho first element of encouragement 5 for it proved that, in every extremity of tho Am erican nation, there is still a public sentiment to bo found, and it will rally on tho side of good morals and tho reputation of tho Btato, If it un derstands tho nocosnlty. Tho pooplo must not ho blamod If, in tho groat variety of affairs and investigations, they often look on confused ana apathetic. Our Government is so extensive in area, and so diversified iu operations, that it requires men of Btato—statesmen—to keep its machinery in or der, and prevent waste, neglect, interference, and incendiarism. No amount of more honesty and good negative inclination can keep tho ship of Stato headed well to tho wind. A reasonable experience in civil affairs, education, and execu tive capacity are requisite; and it is when tho accidents or war ami tho extremities of political parties bring men without those qualities to tho surface, that the enemy of public order and well regulated government seeks aud finds his oppor tunity. Buck la our present condition, It is to onr nohlo system of eohoola aud our unhampered social civilization that wo owo tho moderate ca pacity, oven of men of accident, for public affaire. From ' tho timo of President Fillmore, all our Chief Magistrates havo boon of this popular growth. Mr. Lincoln proved to bo tho possessor of powers extraordi nary in tholr combination, ranging from tho Jesuitry of tho frivolous to tho tho depth nud gravity of tho horolc, and at last tho tragic. Ho kept In view groat objects of human perform ance, aud showed how profoundly his inherited doa of tho equality of rights, aud hie belief iu ho destiny of America to protect and tench thorn, animated bin conduct. Ho boro tho sword of* tho country, whilo constantly possessed of tho ambition to preserve its nationality and ex pel slavery. His amiable nature added to those achievements tho softness and sweetness of n personal mission, and his lofty fato tho solemni ty of a porsoual martyrdom. Tho elements of corruption, inseparable from human na ture, had long existed. In a moro or loss agonized form in tho United States, aud they waxed in strength and took curious proportions during Mr, Lincoln’s Administration, Ho teas a statesman, and kept his mind steadily upon tho largor objects,—preferring to Icavo the correc tion of incidental evils to tho Administration which should succeed tho war. Had ho boon of a desponding spirit, and nervous aud violent up on errors of omission and commission by tho way, wo might never havo kept in view tho main purposes of tho War, hut would havo been de moralized by tho ton thousand peculations and Intrigues which marked tho course of that extra ordinary conflict. It is our province, and tho task of statesman ship iu our tlmo, to return along Iho course of those war-ridden years, and to toko-up theso civil grievances, exhibiting them clearly, and coiTOOt them unflinchingly. If. wo do not do so tho Union 1s too great for us, aud emancipation has boon a mockery. Tho opportunities for gain nt tho public and tho general expense had beou too vast during tho War to ho suddenly extinguished at tho ponce. President Johnson was as honest per sonally as President Lincoln, but tho division of arms was now succeeded by a conflict of policy, In which tho harpies who had studied tho Govern ment to take advantage of it, plied between both sides, aud, by tho common weakness of tho Administration and Congress, continued their work. They sot up tho audacious proposition that tho schemes which prevailed in tho War, and tho grado of taxation consequent upon It, wore tho declared national policy. A largo proportion of tho capital and enterprise of tho country took tho sarao ground. Tho currency was maintained in its expanded amount, and war was oven declared upon gold, tho standard of valuation throughout civilization. High prices wore advocated as evidences of National happiness, and, of course, high salaries woro demanded to make public and private con ditions consistent with each other. Tho preva lence of money, work, and rank during tho War was not suffered to relax, and Congress under took to supply artificial moans of prosperity by laying out schemes, subsidizing and endowing corporations, increasing olliccs and commissions, anti altering the tariff ami tho tax list. Tho vic torious siclo in tho wrangle about policy .was soon represented iu Congress by a groat number of adventurers, foreigners in tho constituency they affected ,to represent, aud shameless and unknown At this period, tho third Presi dent of tho now ora was elected, a bravo and victorious soldier, who was in part a pupil and associate of tho loose notions of tho period. Ho had a modest person, and this, with his historic exploits, affected tho sensibilities of his coun trymen, including many of tho largo men in lit erature, criticism, and society,—so that this per sonal sympathy, added to tho financial necessi ties of tho tlmo, and tho well-organized North ern sentiment of tho majority of tho pooplo, carried him again into tho White House. What ever might havo boon the capacity or incapacity of Gon. Grant to direct tho law-makers and give example to tho laws, ho sank uito a relatively inconspicuous fplnco almost at tho moment of his second inaugura tion, by tho nearly simultaneous exposure of a series of old and now corruptions in Congress, which Involved tho Vico President of tho United States, the Chairmen of tho three leading Com mittees of Congress, tho head of tho Protection school In public life, half a dozen Senators, and as many members of tho House, of both parties. The Vico President departing, and tho now Vico President acceding,—both complicated in tho celebrated Credit Mobilior corruption,—con fronted tho public gazo as actors iu tho same ceremonial with President Grant, who was waiting to deliver his second in augural address to tho public. Four Senators—Bogy, Clayton, Caldwell, aud Pomeroy—woro at that moment uuder accusa tion of purchasing their scats in tho Bonato. Throe Judges of the United States Courts—Dola- Imy, Sherman, aud Durell—woro under impeach ment or imputation. For complicity in tho Credit Mobilior intrigue, tho proudest foreheads in tho National Legislature woro abashed. It was a melancholy and disgraceful spectacle, and it sad dened tho Capital and cast a cloud over all tho country. COMPLIMENTS. Tho editor of the Baltimore American— l hope for his own good—has lust hlu grip ou tho Pod oral ofllcos of Baltimore, where tho Croswoll faction now wholly controls. Bo much for a groat deal of sycophancy I Harlan’s Washington Ctfiron/ctorocontly sought to disinter (ho body of Joseph Gules to give itself editorial respectability ; failing in which, it has employed “ Maj." B. I*. Poore to attack the profession of journalism at largo. Of iiim It may he said, In the words of Artomus Ward : “Ho had but one tooth, and yet this venerable man played on tho baas-drura." Tho Boston Globe in a success to tho extent of invading tho province of that remarkable politi cal toady uud swaohbuckler, tho Boston Journal, which, for tho first year iu its history, stops summer dispatches from Washington in 1878. Along with immature veal umloarlypcau comes tho Kansas Magazine, referring to tho recent religious awakening I gave that Slate, au tho production of a “ writer who, if not already no torious, would require no answer hero.” Tho bad manners of the longitude attach to this juvenile serial, which requested a free contribution from mo for tho first num ber, and received it. Had I followed my bent, which is to temper tho article to tho shorn lamb, 1 should have described Kansas political morals as they affected us at tho seaboard: Tho drunken Dolahay, with tho court-houso key iu bis pocket, taking a douchor from tbo reformer and literary ben-wron, Ingalls, over tho grave of Jim Lane; in tho background, Caldwell, York, Subsidy Pom, anti Bid Clark are erecting a church Iu tho*Black Bob lands for tho Bov. Mr. Kalloch; and tho rest of tho population is writing letters to Senator Kdmond Boss, threatening him with assassination if ho does not commit perjury to tho extent of voting for Johnson’s conviction. Nothing is charged far this second gratuitous contribution 1 TUE BUPEIISOIUPTIOU OP O.V.SAII.

Those tilings show that under merely party discipline, with tiro present Executive standing as tho high example, affaiiH are losing consistency, ami tho very stability of tho country is doprouucd by the utter want of oanaclty ut the top.

POINTS. When a man writes a notorious fact for a news paper, Cheap Jack has a way of dismissing It as a more sensation. Tho more interesting you make your matter, tho more imputation it gets as sensational. To ho entirely reliable and en tirely dull are synonymous, for in that oaso you may offend nobody. I have had my attention called by ono of your readers to a few sensation al paragraphs from tho notorious Edmund Burko,—a man whom wo all know to have boon of such a character that, instead of drawing his back-pay out of tho country on tho gentlemanly firlnciplo of grand larceny, ho would have boon n our day, perhaps, a moro writer of editorials. XToro is what Mr. Burke says ou political preach ing: POLITICS AND THE PULPIT. Supposing, however, that something like moderation were visible in this political sermon: yet polities and tho pulpit ore terms that have little Agreement. No sound ought to bo board in (ho Oluiroh hut the healing tolco of Christian charity. Tho cause of civil liberty and civil government gains as little as that of religion by this confusion of duties. Those who quit their proper character to assumo what does not belong to them, ate, for tho greater part, ignorant both of do character they leave, and of tho character they assume. Wholly unacquainted with do world in which they aro so fond of meddling, and Inexperienced In all Its af fairs on which they prououuco with so much confi dence, they have nothing of politics but tho passions thoyoxclto. Surely do Church Is a place whore ono day’s truce ought to bo allowed to tho ulssouslons and animosities cf mankind. Your legislators, in everything now, aro tho very first who havo founded a commonwcnlth upon gaming, aud infused this spirit into it as Us very vital breath. Tho groat object In thoso politics Is to metamorphose Franco from a great kingdom Into ono grout play table; to turn Its Inhabitants Into a nation of game sters : to mako speculation as extensive as life ; to mix it with all its concerns; and to divert tho whole of tho hopes nud fears of tho pooplo from tholr usual chan nels into tho impulses, passions, mid Ruperstltlonn of thoso who livo ou chances. They loudly proclaim their opinion, (hat this, tholr present nystem of a Re public, cannot possibly exist without this kind of gaming-fund; nud that tho very thread of Ua Ufa is spun out of tho staple of theso specula tions. Tho old gaming In funds was mischievous enough, undoubtedly; but It was so only to Individ uals. Even when U had Kb greatest extent, In tho Mis sissippi and South Sea, It effected but fow, compara tively ; where it extends further, an iu lotteries, tho Rpirit has but a single object. But where the law,' which In most circumstances forbids, and in none' countenances, gaming Is Itself debauched so auto re verse Us nature and policy, and expressly to forco the subject to this destructive table, by bringing tho spirit and symbols of gaming Into tho minutest matters, nud engaging everybody In It. and In everything, a more dreadful epidemic-distemper of that kind Is spread than yet has Appeared in tho world. 'With you, a man can neither earn or buy bis dinner without a speculation. What ho rocclvoi lu tho morning wilt not have the same val ue at night. What ho Is compelled to take an pay for an old debt will not bo received aa tho an mo when ho comes to pay a debt contracted by Wuißolf; nor will it bo the same when, by prompt payment, ho would avoid contracting any debt nt all. Industry must wither away. Economy must bo driven from your country. Careful provision will havo no existence. Who will labor without knowing the amount of hiu pay? Who will study to increase what none cun estimate? Who will accumulate when ho docs not know tho value of what ho saves? If you abstract it from ileuses lu gaming, to accumulate your paper wealth would bo not (lie providence of a man, but the distempered In stinct of a Jackdaw. Gath. Special Diapatth to The Chicago Tribune, THE COMPROMISE WITH PHELPS, DODOE * CO. Washington, D. C., April 19.— Senator Bout woll was interviewed to-day regarding tho com promise with Phelps, Dodgo A Co., of Now York, for $271,000 on tho charge against that firm of undervaluation of invoices. Ho denies that tho compromise was ft forced ouo. When an invoice is tainted with fraud in any part, tho wholo invoice is liable to seizure and confisca tion. Tho offenses charged woro flmall in com parison to tho amount finally paid, but suspicion attached to invoices amounting to over 8100,000. Tho matter was well worked up by tho apccia agents,and several invoices amounting to 8271,000 woro charged as undervalued. Phelps, Dodgo & Co. wrote at once to tho Boorotary,offering to pay tho wliolo amount, but assorted tholr inno cence of any fraud or fraudulent intent. Tho Secretary did not entertain tho proposition a moment. Ho oaid tho Government did not Btaud in tho attitude of a bully, or determined to take advantage of a citizen; that tho matter should go to tho courts, whoro tho defendants would havo au opportunity of proving their in nocence. Ho further stated that tho De partment never compromised with parties claiming to ho innocent, and only upon admission of guilt could a compromise ho enter tained. Upon tills the firm forwarded their, chock for 8271,000, withdrew their former letter, and thus virtually admitted that all tho charges woro true. Mr. Boutwoll was not oatisfiod with this settlement. Ho wanted it to go to tho courts, hut all ho asked was conceded. Tbo re quest to go to court was refused, and it was not tho Secretary's funeral. Generally tho innocent man who is charged in this way by tho govern ment, insists upon going to court and delays tho final payment until ho in compelled to sottlo. Tlio explanation of Phelps, Dodgo & Co. is looked upon by tho Treasury officials as a weak dovico to gain public approval of their course. PENNSYLVANIA POLITICS. Tho Philadelphia Press of to-day has an edi torial demanding the organization of a now party in Pennsylvania to protect tho people from tho railroads, tho rings, and tho political sharpers who aro enriching themselves at tbo expense of tho pooplo. It states that, so long as tho party organizations aro kept up in their present stato, there can ho no reform or re lief. It adduces iho last Legislature os evidence to show that nothing can ho expected but corruption from tho Republicans, BINGHAM. Tho friends of John A. Bingham aro confi dently claiming that ho will either ho appointed to tho Japanese or Italian mission in tho course of tho noxt fow months. UNPAID SCHOOL TEACHERS. Tlio school teachers boro hud u mooting to-day to take somo action with regard to thoir pay, which is now several mouths in arrears, notwith standing tho fact that an appropriation was mado by tho Legislature of tho District, at its last session, to provide for thoir salaried. The money, ns has boon heretofore stated, was otherwise used by tho District authorities. Tho meotiopnaased a reso lution that tho Legislature bo petitioned to pass a law providing that such part of the taxes as in appropriated for tbo payment of teacher's sala ries, bo sot apart and sacredly hold for that solo use and purpose.

Tho quaking continued at frequent Intorvaln until tho morning of the lutli, when, at 2 a. m., two light shocks, succeeded by a heavy ouo, destroyed the entire city. ’ Bopopongo, Ilapango, Ban Tomas, and Santa Tcca havo all suffered to a lesser extent, as well as every town within a radius of twenty miles. Fortunately, owing to tho alarm of tho4th, such residents' as had net. loft the city woro living in tho patois or in tho public plaza, hence Iho number,of lives lost, though groat, was di minished, Only two buildings—tho Hotel del Plaque ami tho Government Palace, aro left standing, Tho losn Is estimated at $12,000,000. -Tho aggregate killed and wounded is 600.

At Ban Martin, only tho church and a couple of old houses aro down, while on tho road thence to Cojutopcquo almost every baildinghas been destroyed. Cojutopcquo itself has not been Injured. Shortly after the severe shock a flro broke out In a riuued drug store, and had it not been for tho energy displayed by tho .Presi dent. who directed tho work which was resulted In its extinguishment and took chavgo of ouo hose, It Is more than probablo that what tho earth quake loft undcalroyod the flames would have con sumed.

A. couple of thieves, who attempted to ply their vo cation while min was rife, woro promptly shot by order of tbo President. A groat deal of ma terial will bo good for rebuilding; aud for this reason tbo Government has Issued a decree that’ tho Capital will not be removed as many bad supposed It , would bo. A docrco has also been Issued permitting tho pooplo to squat on all vacant lots. Ban Miguel.

Him identified tho prisoner as tho man calling himself Frank Bnrdelt, claiming to bo the son of a former I’ollco Commissioner, and who had written her several loiters asking her to conm to Memphis and ho would reveal the whulo plot of tho assassination of her huaUnnd. On tho night of tho Ifitli Inst, ho camo to hor room at the hotel and told her in tho presence of Judge Morgan that (ho parly who killed Cion, 11. was hiroil to do it by John I*. Moore and Dr. Lluthocum, of Holcua ; that his motive In disclosing tho plot was partially from conscience,but principally from revenge, as Dr. Lcnlbccnm bad tried to poison him last summer, when ho was sick ; that on tho night of tho assassina tion ho and Urn man who fired tho shot, after loading a double-barreled shot-gun in a blacksmith-shop noar tho General's house, wont into tho yurd, leaving Lou tbecum holding the horses outside. He saw Urn Gen eral through the window, rilling in a rocking-chair, smoking bio pipe. His hack was to them, and they wont to another window, where they had a view of hie side fnco.

BrniNoriELD, April ID.—ln tbo hurry of last night’s session, tbo House passed a hill to amend 800, 0 of the net to provide for tbo exorcise of (bo right of end. nent domain, approved July 1, 1873. Tbo bill, an passed, reads as follows: Sec, 0. Said Jury shall, at tbo request of either party, go upon tho land nought to bo taken or damaged, in person, and examine tho same, and after hearing tho proofs ottered, mako their report In writing, and tho tamo shall bo subject lo amendment by tho Jury, under tho direction of tho court or tho Judge, as tho caso may ho, so na to clearly sot forth and show tho compenEa tton ascertained to each person thereto entitled, and tho said verdict nhall thereupon ho recorded. This orolta from tho present law tho following : Provided, That no boncllla or odvnntogcs which may accrue to lands or property, shall ho set-off against or deducted from such compensation In any case. Thus meaning that tho old fight between special as sessments and general taxation was resumed, Mr. Mosaic moved to reconsider tho voto by which tho bill passed. Mr. Shaw denounced tho hill as violating all princi ples of Justice, by paying a man for taking his pro p orty, by tolling him that what remained was increased in value by tho Improvement. Mr. Armstrong defended tho bill, and believed it was equitable (hat tho proporly-o\vuors should bear tho bunion of Improvements that Increased tho valuo of their property. Mr. Hay said the bill simply loft tho matter where it was boforo tho present law passed, where It had been for years. Mr. Oansedy favored tho bill, and moved to table (bo motion to reconsider which wualost. Tho bill was reconsidered and postponed for future con sideration. Tho Sub-committee of tho Senate itallrond Commit tee have reversed tho action of tho full Committee, by rejecting tbo Douhhua bill, and taking to their bosom tho Houso hill. When they mot, Mr. Sandford made amotion to that otfoct. Mr. Whiling favored it. and Mr. Donahue could not consistent with his modesty too urgently push Ids own bill, so ho rather Inclined to give' way, and tho House bill was taken up, Mr. Dow and Mr. Stcolo lighting tho movement to tho last. Then (hero wau a big talk on tho hill, and It was de cided to strike out tho eighth section, providing that tho Itallrond Commissioners should flx schedules. Gen eral conversation developed an opposition to tho Ilf tlx section, providing for recovering tho linos provided In tho fourth section, In an action of debt, and to tho third section, defining unjust discriminations. Some minor adorations were suggested, and tho bill referred to Mr. Sanford to prepare amendments. Tho bill will bo apt to undergo n complete metamorphosis before it comes back to tho Senate. In short, It will bo trimmed, and cut, and lopped, and pruned into more compact compass. It will be licked into shapo so like tbo Dona hue bill that they will bo a pair of twins. Tho rejec tion of tho original Douahuo measure by tho Subcommittee was a stroke of policy, a tub thrown to tbo whale, as tho House, which Is ttflllctcd with a sense of its own dignity, would doom it an Insult, were tho Donuhuo bill to bo returned. There nro some stubborn members who will I>o against .receiving anything but tho Houoo bill complete from tbo Senate; but on tho other baud, tboro Is a largo number who voted for tho bill because they woro afraid of their constituents, who will Jump for joy if tho Senate amends It. What tho result will ho Is ex ceedingly dubious. Tbo House concurred in tbo Senate resolution for a committee of two Senators, three llcprestutativcs, and tbo prescut Revision Commission to take charge of tbo revision and report at tbo next session of the Legisla ture, or to its successor. DEDUCTING INDEBTEDNESS. Mr, Gordon introduced a bill providing that farmers when listing fbclr live stock for taxation,—cattle, horses, mules, sheep and hogs—shall bo permitted to deduct all bona fldo indebtedness on tbo same. This savors of special legislation. If tbo principle is good for tbo farmer, Is it not good for everybody else 7 THE RAIUIOAT) fiQDADDI.E. Tbo Chicago, Danville k Vincennes Railroad people aro hero endeavoring to persundo tbo Governor of tbo propriety of vetoing tbo bill, which tbo Chicago, La fayette L Cincinnati Company got passed while they were napping. The bill went through by default; thoro was no one to oppose it.—an Innocent measure, a measure of Justice, It was claimed to be, and nothing was said to tbo contrary. While tbo bill may nor may not subserve tbo ends of justice, it was undoubtedly legislation for a particular purpose, and Is another in stance of tbo inclination to get back In tbo old rut of special legislation. ADJOURNMENT, Tho defeat of tbo intention of the House to bold nn adjourned session Is in tho power of tbo Senate, and, as a majority of that body cun earn moro than (3 a day by pursuing their usual avocations, tbero Is somo slight uopo that they will refuse to concur with tbs House. THE PARK nn-L. Tbo West Side Park bill will como up on Us passage in tbo House uozt week, ami probably go through. Tho measure has been divoeted of much of its original sin, and is not very objectionable in its present attenuated condition. When it first came hero it was a barefaced robbery, and tbo fact that tbo Commissioners Indorsed Its Iniquities cast a cloud of suspicion over it, and made its subsequent progress tedious and dlfilcult. Tho Senate will have to concur in tho amendments of the House, and will probably do so. though Mr. Keboo Is still on the war-path, and flourishing bis tomahawk against tbo bill. the nr.ronTiKO monopoly. Tbo • bill repealing tho Cook County re porting monopoly was ordered to a third reading in tho Home, and will puss, tfcurly every Cook County member is lu favor of it, being naturally desirous of relieving tbo tax-payers of a blood-sucking monopoly for which iburu la neither reason nor excuse. Tbo County Commission ers ordered tb’o County Treasurer not to pay bills against tbo county for reporting. Tbo interested par ties appealed to the Supremo Court, It Is understood that it has been decided that so long as the law re mains uurepealed, tbo monopoly will live and thrive os heretofore. Hence tbo necessity for its repeal. The Ilonao anjournod at noon,nearly all tho members going home. The example Bet by tho Senate in ad journing till Monday had a demoralizing effect; At thin stage of tho session two days’ idleness is uoxt to criminal.. WAGES EXEMPT niOMGAHNIfInMENT.

There were about 170 passengers, who took tho 9:30 train from thin place for ITovldoncco and Boston. At Richmond switch, a dam across a nmnll mill-stream had boon carried away, lotting tho water from Ennis Pond, which nuppllon tho power for a grist-mill, down upon tho railroad bridge, located about 300 feet din* tant, completely washing It away. No ono Uvod near tho pond, so that tho breaking away of tho dam wan not known until tho train was thrown into tho ohaani. Quo of tho iron rails on tho opposite track was driven completely through tho engine. William Oullo, engineer, and George Eldrldgo, fireman, died at their posts, snd their charred remains have been taken from ..the wreaked engine. Tho former loaves a family, Tho killed aro very much disfigured. Boven bodies have been recovered. Conductor Onin Gardiner cs capcd. Thomas Nolan, tho through brakeman, was seriously injured In the thigh. All tho other hrakemou escaped with slight injuries. The killed, os far os roe* ognlzod in addition to tboso mentioned, aro: Albert Alien, Providence; Jerry Camoror, Boston; John Oallllian, Now York. Thcro are about tblrty-flvo wouudod, some of whom seriously. It is thought several bodies have been washed down by tho stream, as the flood was probably at its ucignt. Tho engine made a fearful loop, passing over tho stream, and imbedding Itself in tho opposite embank ment. Three passenger cars only were burned, two first class cars and one sccond-clasr. Tho other throe cars burned wore what railroad men call “baggage flats.” Tho throe cars that contained tho baggage and express crates were what prevented greater loss of Ufo. Conductor Gardiner was Jammed in between tho seals by tho shock, hut avoided a double disaster by immediately calling out for some one to go back with tho signal of danger for tbs mail train, which was just behind and approaching at a rapid speed. Jonas nolstrom, a passenger, gives tho following ac count of tho accident: Ho was on tho left-hand side of tho roar end of tho car, and In front of him on tho opposite side, near the stove, were two yotmg men, apparently from 20 to 25 years of ago, and directly behind them was Benjamin It. Knapp, Jr., of Boston, nolstrom, immedi ately after tho shock, beard tho young men and Knapp call tor help to extricate them, os they wore wounded, and hold fast by tho splintered portions of tho preceding car. On reaching Knapp, It was found that ono of his legs was injured: and Ilolstrom and several others set about to extricate him and tho two young mcu. Sud denly a volume of flames shot into tho car door, and inslanlly tho mass of splinters was on fire, tho flames rushing through tho caras quickly os though tho wood had been a lot of hay. Tho rescuers had barely time to relievo Knapp from hls position, when they wore obliged to flee for their lives, and tho two unfortunate young men wore loft to their terrible fato. and wore burned to death in a very few minutes. With these exceptions, none of tho other occupants of this car woro known to have perished, though quite a number had very narrow escapes. Just before the lire hurst into tho car. ITolstrom and others were engaged In prying up tho stove, which im prisoned tho two young men who woro seated beside it. ' Tho bridge where tho disaster happened is between 30 and 40 foot wide, and tho depth of tho chasm about 20 feet. Nearly 40 rods above this point, is a grist and saw mill, ou tho Pawtucket River, and n supply of the water for tho mills Is received by means of a dam. Tho storm swept away tho dam. and the water in tho stream below rose to tho height of 10 feet, carry ing away tho railroad bridge and abutments which woro found about fifty rods below. The rails at either end of tho hridgo wero left sticking up, and witcu tho train came dashing along tho ougluo and tender leaped tho chasm and landed on the opposite side. Immediately behind were two crate cars, wlilch plunged into tho opening, followed by u socond-clasa passenger car, containing a number of emigrants, and a parly of sailors, belonging in Boston, who wore re turning from Now York. As (Ills car piled upon the crate cars it was splintered Into kindling-wood, and tho persons inside were tumbled into tho river, and, with ono exception, wero saved uninjured. In tho rear of (his car was u car which contained but two passengers, and Thomas Nolan, tho brakeman. Tho next car was occupied by quite a number of passengers, and was tho ono in which Mr. nolstrom was seated. Behind this was another passenger car, and a smoking car, both of whichwore saved by uncoupling and naming thorn back from tho wreck. Tho general opinion among (bo passengers scorned to ho that tho fire caught from tho stove in the second-class car, though Its work was done so quickly that tho origin will probably never bo definitely known. No ono has yet arrived In Boston who can give a list of the number killed, hut tho general estimate is from eight to twelve. X’noviDKNOE. April 10.—Thcro wero probably but soveu persons killed, namely: Messrs. Alien, Creamer, Oullo, Eldrldgo, Callahan, and two unknown persons, whoso limbs wero burned off, leaving their trunks on ly. No inquest is deemed necessary by tho Coroner, Tho bodies have been brought to this city. New York, April 19.—D. D. Babcock, Vice-President of tho Stoulugton Line, makes tho following state ment: 8o far only five passengers and two employes havo been found killed. The cause of tho accident is very plain. The dam, ICO yards . above tho bridge, gave way, and precipitated a pilo of lumber against tuo abutments of the bridge, which forced another dam, and tho overflow undermined the abutments. Tho bridge was only 20 feet span, Tho wounded, mostly emigrants, havo been sent to hospital in Providence. Tho engineer died at bis post, with his hand on tho tbrottlo-valvo. There will bo no further Interruption to travel. Cleveland, 0., April 19.— The second section of an oil train on tho Franklin branch of tho Lake Shore Hallway ran into the roar of tho first section, near Hadley station, Inst night. Ono locomotive was wrecked, and thirteen loaded oil cars and cabooses burned. Charles Smith, conductor, was slightly burned about the face and bauds. Tho burning oil floated down in a stream, and burned a wagon-road bridge half a mile distant from tbo track. LOUISIANA. Official Corroupondouco Concerning' tlio tfronblcN iu Grant Parieh* Wabuinoton, April 10.—Tho following dispatch was received hero to-day through Major-General Mc- Dowell : New OnnEANS, April 19. Cot. ir. D. Whtpple, Assistant Adjutant General, Head quartern of the Army, irnsMuyfon, D. C.: Instructions of tho Secretary of war of this date are received. I beg to call attention to dispatches of yes terday and to-day, forwarded through Division Head quarters. It will bo seen by theso that I bad deter mined to act under authority of tho President’s order of March 5, to prevent violent interference with tho Slato Government. If I am mistaken in that view. I should like to bo informed at once. Since these dis patches, requisitions by tbo United States Marshal in eases occurring in tho disturbed district and other parishes, and I huvo ordered troops to Mouroo and Alexandria. Louisiana, to act as a posso cometatus to the Marshal,but tho Governor of tho Htato has made sev eral requisitions for troops covering ground in various parts or tlio State, stating tho inability of tho local authorities to keep tho ponco, and it will there fore ho seen how important it Is that 1 should -have the right views of tho iustruc tions of tho sth. Instructions of this dato would seem to imply that I was expected to act only on the requisition of tho United States Marshal in tho execu tion of a judicial process. As tbo order of tho sth of March now stands, It is very comprehensive, and It is on that, no doubt, Guv. Kellogg bases his requisition. W. 11, Eitonv, Colonel Commanding, tho execution of a judicial process have been received iu Tho order of tho sth of March, to Col, Emory from Gen. Sherman, is as follows: “ Tho President directs you to prevent any violent interference with tho State Government of Louiolnna. Tho acting Secretary of War has inclructed tho Gen eral of the Army as follows: Geueuai. : Deferring to tho dinpatches of Qon. McDowell and Col.

Kellogg, which Is tho Government at IU scat. Tho Colonel commanding la by said order directed to pro tect It from being overthrown or Interfered with iu its direct functions by violence,. In regard to lo cal disturbances of tho peace In tho State, nut direct violent attacks on tho central organization of tho State Government, tho ofiiccr in command must bo governed by tho limitations of tho order of tho 18th lust., of tho Acting Secretary of War, directing him to aid tho United States authorities, thou legally required, except that his action need not bo confined to any particular parish. If tho State Government needs aud desires tho aid of the United States troops to maintain the public peace or prevent rebellion, tho Legislature, or Governor, if it ho nut in session, shdutd apply to tho President directly Iu a regular manner for such aid,” Tho ohovo was sent to Col. Emory by Gen. Sherman, for his guidance. : Tho following is a copy of tho telegram addressed to Gen. Sherman by Maj.-Gen, McDowell, dated Nsw York, April 18: Gov. Kellogg applies to Col. Emory for troops to keep tho peace in Grant Parish, La, Col. Emory or dered a coroj*uuy from Uaton Kongo, All boats re fused to take troops up tho Hod Hlvcr, averring that it would destroy their trade. Applications made to tho Collector at Now Orleans for a cutler wore nujt with a reply that none were available. Emory asks that tho Government bo Informed of his situ ation, and that ho bo authorized to selzo n boat, or that a rovenuo cutter bo placed at his disposal. Ho has authorized tho Quartermaster to chnrtur a special steamer, aud, if nuccmful, will send two companies to romain in tho disturbed district during tho summer. It will require from fifteen to twenty days to march. Tlio Governor states that tho local authorities aru utterly unable to keep tlio peace. I cannot hut think that Gou. Emory will bo able to charter a boat. If not, ho should not bo without tho moauu of relieving tho disturbed district. Gen. McDowell also telegraphed Gen. Sherman as follows: Nnw York, April 18. F.mory libh telegraphed ; It is now certain that ho will got a steamer. I thought ho would, lie is now anxious to know-if tho Quvurumout approves of his course. I huva telegraphed that ids sending troops to Grant Parish, and engaging a steamboat for thin purpoee, is approved.
