8 WASHINGTON. Speculations Regarding (lie Speaker- ship of the Next House. Alleged Fraud and Favoritism in tho Award of Indian Contracts. Sprttol Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune, BFEAKERBIUP OP THE NEXT HOUSE. Washington, D. O m May 14.—Those friends of Speaker Blaine, whohavo him in training for tho Presidency in 1870, say that, In case ho is re elected by tbo Forty-third Congress as Speaker, he will throw overboard oil those Chairmen of committees who have in any way boon connected with tho Credit Mohillor transactions. Blaino jo a candidate for ro-olootion, and ho claims the support of at least two-thirds of iho old members of tho Forty-second Congress who havoboon ro-oloctod ; tho bal ance. being nothing but carpet-baggers and Pennsylvania Protectionists, aro claimed by Maynard, of Tennessee. Letters are already being sent by both thoso compotl ora to tho newly-elected Congressmen, soliciting their votes for those respective candidates to tho thlrd position in tho Government. Blaino s friends make tho point in his favor, first, that ho is not committed to any economical policy of legislation bo far as revenue is concerned; and, second, that ho opposed the ealary-increaso so far as it related to himself. Maynard commits himself boldly to tbo protoo tlvopolloy, and argues that Blaino s naraohns been mentioned with suspicious transactions in euoh a'way as to make his re-election os Speaker questionable In point, of party policy, to say nothing else. Maynard has nothing to say, eith er in condemnation of tho salary-grab or in c °iu* Sent on tho participants In the OrodU Mobllior. His friends give it to te un derstood that, In caso of his election, no signal changes would ho made in the chair manship of tho important House committees, save, perhaps, to strengthen the Ways pud Moans in tho direction of protection. Blaino. through his friends, on the contrary, is pledged to a policy which will destroy, all those who figured In tho Credit Mobilier transactions, or who woro prominent and Influential in bringing about tho salary-grab increase. Under this policy, Garfield, as Chairman of tho Appropriation Committee; Dawes, as head of tho Ways and Moans, and Scofield, as representative of the' Naval Com mittee,.would aU have to bo sacrificed. Bing ham, as Chairman of the Judic ory, not being ro-ofectod, is no longer In tho field, this position being temporarily sought by Bon Butler. Altogether tho complexion of tho next Houso, ao far os its loaders are concerned, is very com plicated, and tho fight for tho Speakership prom ises to bo extremely severe. Although every body concedes that Blaum will bo eventually 1 successful, tbo ultimate se lection of Chairman, which virtually decides tho leadership of the next House, prom ises to bo one of tho most exciting, hi a personal way, that has boon witnessed in this direction for some time. IHDIAS COSTBAOTB. Tho recent nwnrrt of contracts for furnishing supplies to tho Indiana, modo by tho Hoard of Indian Poaco Commissioners at Now York, haa created considerable dissatisfaction, especially among tho unsuccessful bidders. Charges aro made of favoritism, and it is oven hinted that a sort of religions ring hod been formed to take the place of tho old bureau ring. Tho spooiflo tangible charge publicly made is that tbo Commissioners in defiance of law, did not give tho contracts to tho lowest bidders, but selected certain favorites, friends of tho Commissioners, who were not tho lowest bidders. What truth there is in these charges remain to bo scon. They aro of so bonous a nature, however, that the Secre tory of tho Interior thought proper to Instruct the Commissioner of Indian Affairs to make on investigation of them, and to him it is alleged that bids wore rejected from perfectly responsible parties, the difference between such bids and those of successful parties amounting to several hundred thousand dollars; that is, tho .mount of money to ho oipoudod for aup plies is several hundred thousand dollars more than it would have been had tho lowest bids been accepted. Ex-Souator Harlan, who was Chairman of tho Senate Committee on Indian Affairs, commenting upon this subject, says it is duo to tho public that tho official acta of. Chris tian Commissioners, Superintendents and Indian Agents should bo os carefully supervised by tho Secretary of tho Interior os tho official conduct of those who mako no profession of Christianity and disinterested benovoleuco. If what they do is right and wise, the severest scruliny can do no harm, audif found to bo either unwise, indiscreet or improper they should bo tho first to sanction a correction. Should they manifieat undue sensi tiveness bn ibis point, it would be prima facie evidence that such supervision was needed, and the Secretary should not, and wo are sure ho wm not, shrink from tho discharge of his official duty in this respect. This Boards of Christian Commissioners was not authorized by Con frees, and tho churches were not invited y the President to nominate Indian Agents and Superintendents to shield tho head of the Department from official responsibility. They wore intended to bo helpers and not mas- Btors, and tho people will hold him responsible for the administration of his Department, and expeot him to oorroot any oversights or errors that his subordinates may commit, whenever they may oomo to his knowledge, without re gard to tho Christian professions of such offi cers.

Gov.

Nixon's counsel will go to tho remainder of tho thirty-two Supremo Court Judges, or such of them as bo can reach before the sentence is carried into execution. Later —Mr. Howe, counsel for Nixon, obtained a writ of error from Judge rancher, and appli cation was mode to Judges Ingraham and Davis in tho Supremo Court, general term, for a stay of proceedings. Tho question was argued, and the Court reserved its decision.

Three General Assemblies to Meet To- Ray—Programme of tho Northern Assembly* to moot in .Baltimore* Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune, Baltimore, Md., May 14.— T0-morrow three Presbyterian General Assemblies will bo organ ized in different sections of tho country, the Assembly of tho Northern Church in this city, the Southern Assembly in Little Rook, Ark., and the Cumberland Presbyterian in Huntsville, Ala. Resides thoso there is tho Assembly of tho Uni ted Presbyterian Church, which convenes in Philadelphia on May 23. Each of tbo Assemblies Is distinct from, and in somo measure antagonis tic to, the other three. Tho Northern Assembly is much larger and more influential than tho others combined, being tho highest judiciary of a Church whoso membership is not for from 600,000, and whoso contributions for benevolent objects amounted last year to more than $10,000,000. Arrangements for tho mooting of this bony have boon perfected by local commit toes, and already more than 100 delegates have arrived. This number will bo increased to 675 or GOO by to-morrow evening. All members of the Assembly aro considered guests of tho Pres byterian Church in Baltimore, and as such are assigned to private houses or hotels, and their bills aro paid from tbo general fand. Tho Assembly will moot in tho Central Pres byterian Church, an exceedingly plain building, erected eighteen years ago, by Dr. Stuart Rob inson, now of Louisville, and a loading man in tho Southern Church. Tho houso will afford seats for 1.200 persons on tho main floor, and for 800 more in the galleries. Tho pews aro low, heavy, and suggestive of tho backache. There is little decoration or embellishment about tho building, and tbo whole is a striking contrast to tho Fort Street Church, Detroit, in which tho Assembly mot last year. ' Tho order of exorcises and tho appointment of oommittoos, wo, of course, matters of conjec ture. It is only certain tho Assembly will bo called to order at 11 o’clock to-morrow morning, by Dr. J. Nlcolls. of St. Louis, tho retiring Mod erator, who will preach tho opening sermon. Hla theme will bo tho " Apostle’s Prayer,” of fered in the 17th Chapter of Luke : "And iho Apostles said unto tho Lord, 1 increase onr faith.’ ” At tho close of the sermon a Moderator will bo chosen, as this is tho highest office in the gift of tho Church, and as it has never yet boon and probably novor will bo hold twice by any ono clergyman, great interest attaches to the election. The caudidntoa thus far named are Dr. Henry Darling, of Albany, N. Y.; Dr. Howard Crosby, of New York City; Dr. Jas. Eells, of Cleveland, O.; and Dr. Ilorriok John son, of Philadelphia. The choice virtually lies between Lr. Darling and Dr. Crosby, with tho ahancos in favor of tho former. Dr. Eells, it is thought, is physically too weak a roan for tho position, while Dr. Johnson is too young and comes f romJPhiladolphia, which had tho Modera tor two years ago. When tho election has taken place, tho As sembly will perfect its organization, and thou adjourn to allow tho new Moderator an oppor tunity to appoint tho permanent committees. In tho evening a communion service will bo hold, contrary to the customary arrangement, in accordance with which the Assembly communion has not occurred until tho first Sunday of tho session or thereafter. Tills evening there is a prayer-mooting in tho Central Ouurcli, led by A. T. Pierson, of De troit, and Cyrus Dickson, of Now York. Mauy delegates aro in attendance.

LOUIS., Tlio Conuroeelonal Conforcnco»*«iilat of Coiiffrcaalonal mid Other Dole" gate* X>roaont*»«KloMolutlone Pre pared by the St* Louie merchants’ Kxvlmngo* Bt. Louis, Mo., May 14.— Tho Congressional Conference urns called io order shortly after 11 o’clock, Mayor Drown In the chair. Two or throo trains which woro delayed yesterday ar rived last night, bringing several more members of Congress, who took seats in the Conference this morning. A letter from President Grant was road, returning thanks for the. invitation, and rogrottlng tbat other arrangements prevent his attendance. Letters woro also received from Charles Bumuor and several other distinguished gentlemen, regretting their inability to be pres ent. The following is the substance of the resolu tions presented by Cnpt. James D. Dads, as ex pressive of tho views of tho Merchants* Ex change of this city, and by which body they wore unanimously approved t Tho first de clares that tbo deepening of tho mouth of the Mississippi Diver is of tbo very first importance tatho interests of tho entire Valley of tbo Missis sippi, and of great moment to tho whole coun try. The solution of this problem, we believe, will bo achieved by closing up all tho Inferior outlets of tho river, and condensing its waters by a system of jetties to one channel. By this moans a depth of at least twenty or twenty-two foot may bo obtained in tbo southwest pass, at an outlay insignificant, when compared with tho many millions that will bo annually saved to tbo country by tho work. When onoo accomplished, a small annual appropriation will suflloo to maintain tho required depth forever after wards. The second urges that In addition to tho re moval of snags, wrecks, and other obstructions from tho channel, a comprehensive system of improvements looking directly to tho permanent location and deepening of a channel through tho shoal places below Bt.Xouls, bo at once matured audinauguratod,*andthatadopthof eight foot bo determined as tho maximum to bo accom plished at first by tho proposed works. This will involve tho removal of probably not more than thirty bars or eboal places between this city and Now Orloons, and tho removal of a few dangerous rdoks obovo Cairo, nud would result in a saving a thousand-fold greater than tho original cost. Tho third declares that this plan Is suited for tbo improvement of tho Missouri, Illinois, .Ar kansas, Bed. Ohio. Tennessee, Cumberland, and many other important streams in tills valley, on each of which it should be applied on a scale commensurate with tho volume of the river and tho demands of tho commerce. The fourth declares that the improvement of tho upper and lower rapids of tho Mississippi should be vigorously prosecuted until tho navi gation of those parts of tho river are made safe and convenient, and that tbo improvements al ready commenced on all other rivers of this vol ley should bo energetically prosecuted to com pletion. The sixth directs that every practicable water route to the Gulf, to tho Atlantic Ocean, or to the groat lakes, which can bo opened ana made safe and convenient at a reasonable cost when compared with tho benefits to result from it In lessoning tbo expense of transporting tbo pro duce of this Valley to their various markets, should meet with favor from tho General Gov ernment, and receive tho unanimous support of every representative of this Valley in Congress. Tho seventh declares that tho vast commerce depending upon the Mississippi Diver for cheap transportation demands that no artificial ob struction bo permitted in Us channel except upon the most urgent necessity, and that no bridge should bo authorized across it below Bt. Louis, having spans over tbo stream of loss width than 600 foot, and a clear height of 76 above high water mark should be preserved under tbo cen ter of the channel-spans of fluoh bridge. The eighth suggests that in consequence of tho breaking down of several iron bridges witbla tho past few yoars.luvolving much loss of life,all bridges hereafter Wit on an important railroad route, should bo examined into by a competent commission, whoso duties and powers should bo defined by Congress, and without whoso exami nation and approval no plans for such proposed bridges should ho adopted. Tho ninth asks that tho navigation of our great water highways should bo relieved of the dangers and delays to which it is subjected by the many badly constructed railroad bridges on the Mississippi Diver, by requiring them to oo so modified as to lesson the number of accidents constantly occurring to river craft by collision with their piers, and that** general Bridge law bo passed oy Congress, which shall define the length and height of (heir spans and general control of the location and construction of such bridges in a manner to prevent unnecessary in jury to tho navigation of said rivers. Eleventh —That tho interests of this valley im peratively demand tho most economical moans of transportation to and from tho foreign mar kets of tho world, and tho safest and most dura ble class of steamers, barges, etc., for its inland water service, and that it should bo tho duty of each representative of this Valley in Congress to labor for tho removal of every artificial im pediment which interferes with such cheap ocean transportation, or which prevents the adoption of such safe and durable vessels for its inland navigation. Thirteenth —That wo emphatically declare that tbo Dovouuo laws should be so amended as to permit shipmasters to purchase ships wherever they can bo most cheaply procured. Fourteenth —That wo emphatically declare that the Dovouuo law which forbids registry to tho ship of on American citizen, simply because she was built in a foreign laud, ana thus compels him to float tho flag of another nation ovor his property, is a burdensome imposition upon tho people of this Valley, and is a policy only worthy of a past ego. Tbo fifteenth refers to tho foot that every civ ilized nation except our own uses iron hulls for vessels, and asks Congress to ascertain tho cause of this, and apply tho remedy. Tho sixteenth asks that tho laws bo so amend ed as to restore tho prestige of tho American commercial marine, and enable it to do Its sharo of tho carrying trade of the world, and that, if it is necessary that American Iron-masters must be shielded from foreign competition by laws which olloolually interdict iron steamers on the rivers of this valley, which drive Us products into English and Gorman ships on tbo ocean, there should bo some substantial Government encouragement given to tho construction of iron vessels and such Federal patronage as will sustain American steamship linos against this unequal competition, and thus lift our onoo groat mor- I chant marine fromitsdlsgracofulinferiority, and keep tbo lives and property of our people from being longer iraporrilod In wooden ships and floating tinder-boxes. Ex-Bouator John B. Henderson was introduced and delivered a lengthy speech, in which ho dis cussed tho causes which have brought about tho groat and imperative demand for increased tran sit facilities, and which lod to tho controversy now existing between stockholders and bond holders of railroads on tho one side and pro ducers and consumers on tho other. Ho explained under what circumstances many of tho railroads woro built, tK t , groat cost of construction, extravagant management, etc., and said the railroad companies must neces sarily pay their running expenses and moot tbo interests on their bonds or go into bankruptcy. Thoy also struggle to pay dividends to their stockholders. To do this their managers insist that thoy cannot afford to lesson tbo prices of transportation. Ho said Congress would soon have to meet those questions, and to treat thorn impartially would bo tho part of wiso statesman ship. Ho deprecated tho fixing of arbitrary schedules, in disregard of business experience, and the abolition of all competition In rates, un der the plan of abolishing distinctions between competing and non-competing points, Ac. There is no douut, ho said, that tho roatls In many in stances have violated their charters and usurped privileges not granted by law. Wherever this bo the case, legislative and judicial authority roust correct tho ovll. It is well that tho controversy has begun. It will attract public attention, and furnish a subject for tbo contem plation of tho statesman far moropiaotlcal and ennobling than tbo threadbare Issues of tho lato war. It looks to tho material interests of tho pooplo, and will inevitably bring in other important questions of political econ omy. Tho want of the West, thou, is transportation. Tbo railroads now constructed cauuot furnish sufficient facilities ; but by a foolish war on railroads and tho owners of railroads, wo drlvo capital into other chan nels, and shall have aggravated instead of miti gated tho railroad troubles. Ho thou spoke of tho Mississippi Diver as an avenue of communication, and said tho Govern ment, by expending ouo-twontlelh of tho money it has invested in Western railroads, could fur nish a depth of water sufficient to carry to tho seaboard tho increasing products at one-fourth tho present cost. When 1 speak of tho country I moan tho East and Went, tho North and Bouth. Ho also advocated the improvement of the tributaries oftho Mississippi Diver, and said tho streams east and west of tho Alle ghenies should bo connected by canals, and mentioned tho James Diver A Knnawaha Canal, tho projected canal, In Alabama and Georgia, and tho enlargement* of tho canal between Lake Michigan and the Illinois Divor, tho Niagara Canal, and other en terprises of a similar character, in all these prospects tho East and West are no loss inter- I estid than tho South.’.; !• „ ‘ . . Ha.thon gave a history of tho rise and feu of oilr national marine, and urged that some meas ures should bo devised to restore it to Its former eminence. Ho thought, however,-that, before I our commerce can bo ■ restored, Iho tariff j and currency systems would have to bo revised, but . <ho declined to discuss those ques tions. :Ho advocated tho construction J of throe iron shlp-bulldlng yards, one on tho At lantic, another on tho Mississippi River, and a third on tho raoiflo coast, for tho construction of Government vessels and ships for private In- 1 dividnals. Ho then gave a history of tho Union Pacific and Central Pacific Railroads, and showed how they bad violated their pledges and law in discriminating against tho Kansas Pacino, which is a branch road, and under tho law should bo operated os part of the main lino.. Judge Konnard, of Now Orleans, then spoke of tho obstructions at tho month of iho Mississippi River, showing, In a conclusive manner, what groat injury those aro to tho commerce of tho J volley and country, and how thojovll can bo 1 remedied by tho construction of Bt. Philips Canal, the feasibility of which is unquestioned.
