Special Dispatch to The Chicago Jribtms. Washington, D. C., May 3,—Tbe Houbo to day unsealed Charles B. Farwell and declared J. V. Le Moyne entitled to the seat from the Third Illinois District. Blaokbarn. of Kentucky, closed the debate. Blackburn always scema to speak with a chip on bis shoulder. He did so to-day. There is a great deal of the flavor of Southern chivalry about Blackburn, and hie air seems to defy those who differ from him. Tho flrsttialf hour of bis speech was a bitterly partisan ar raignment of tbe Republicans for their alleged unfairncas in Congress, while Blackburn him self and tho Urge class he repre sents are standing monuments of the magnanimity of the Republicans. Tho letter of Mr. Farwcll, recently published In Tiik Ciucaoo Tribune, in which Farwall character!zee the Democratic ma jority aa EX-CONFEDERATES and unreconstructed Rebels, wsa made tbe text for Blackburn's harangue. It waa a letter which did Mr. Forwell’e cause no hurt si parties stood, but which would have been politically Indiscreet if bo had more friends In the majority. Blackburn treatod thin let ter and denounced Republican history with a planta tion swagger and declamatory bombast some times exhibited in members newly come to the ball of Congress, lilackbum, 1b tbe arro gance of his speech, again illustrated Ben Hill's famous saying that the ex-Conledoratco in com ing to Congress have come back to their father’s bouse, and come to stay. Tbe vote was first taken np on the snbetUnte of tba minority, declaring that Farwell was entitled to re tain bis nett. Upon this resolution the yeas were VH ; nays, P.'S, Whereupon tbe majority report, declaring Le Moyne entitled to tbe seat, waa adopted by a viva voce vote. The voting was almost entirely partisan, but it was noticeable thslldunar, O’Brien, and Wll shire, of the Democrats, voted against Le Moyne. Lamar waa urged to make a speech in favor of Farwell, but declined to do ao. BELKNAP. THE IMPEACHMENT TRIAL. spen«l DinwUth to The Chictnao /Wtmne. Washington, D. C., Mi «.* B.—oen.

TUB HOUBB COMMITTER HARM UP ITS MIND. .Special DUixUeA to Tht Chuaao mount. Washington, D. C., May 3.—Tbo iloooo Com mittee on Printing baa agreed to ila rei>ort in tbe matter of its invoatigatiou of tbe Public Printer, and will proooul It to the House for ac tion aa soon aa the testimony lu printed. Tlie report covers about twenty pages of manu script, sad after a summary of the voluminous evidence, will recommend that tbe Public Printer bo presented to the District Grand Jury for indictment upon six chargee. Those charges consist of specific allegations of alleged mal feasance In office. Tbe Committee bae decided tbut it has no Jurisdiction to impeach tbe Public Printer, as bo Is an officer of tbe Seuate. TUB PRINCIPAL PROSECUTORS of Olapp have been tbe Brothers lUvca, whose fattier for so many years published the Convreuitmti GM*, and out of Its profits made an Immense fortune. The ultimate object of Investigation in the last and present Congresses was to again secure from tbeUoveroniwt tbe contract for thoprlulUigof the Congressional proceed ings. They lure been a little more nucrMwfiil la this Congress than they were with the lost. Tiny have not only succeeded in showing that Uio Government Pnul lug-Otfioe la managed lu a slovenly manner, hut they have also induced the Printing Committee to agree to retiort a bill which, under certain specified conditions, will provide that the contract for printing Cungmtlonal proceedings shall again be given to tbe Rives Bros. Tbe entire drift of tbe lUn-s before tbo I'rlutlng Committee has b*ou to show that the Ihibtlo Printer has printed the Congressional proceedings FOR LESS THAN COST, and charged the deficit to the Department and Con gressional printing. Tbe main ground npoa which tbe Indictment of the Printer Is ceouumeuded la wastage of material. TnE NAVY. BECHET INVESTIGATION, cfprnai DUvateh to Tht CVucaoe Tribune, Washington, D. 0., May 3.—The Committee od Expenditures in the Kary Department exam* ined for three home to-day the financial agent and lobbyist Benjamin Cheover. The Committee enjoined secrecy both upon tbe witness and members of the Committee until Cboever’s testi mony is concluded. It is generally understood, however, that bis testimony haj directed to the droamstances under which the Daring Brothers were dismissed as financial agents of the Gov ernment in Europe, and Henry Clews >t Co. ap pointed in their place. Unless Cheevors told a very different story to tbe Committee from that which he recently swore to in the suit in Now York, the change was made through the in fluence of the lobby tlnu of Choevcr A Van Buren, of which Cheerur is the only known member. TUB ANNUAL UUDOLT. The Bub-CommiUoe of tfio House Committee ou Appropriations having iu charge the Naval bill, had a long conference with (Secretary Hobo son to-day with reference to tbo proposed re duction*. The figures, aa considered by the Commit tee, were referred to the Secretary, most of the re ductions receiving bts approbation. The amount esti mated by the Navy Department fur tbe nest fiical year was 117.000.1i00, which by the Uub-Commlt tee was cut down to U'ASUJ.wC. Tbe prin cipal reductions were tnado in the llurvaue of Ordnance, Straw Eustiufiiug. aud Construction rud lU'palr.RTlu-re will be very Utile money exjvnded lu the next yiur on heavy ordnance, aud it wlil bo dllUcult for the Secretary of the Navy to find muney In the present bill to squander by the hundreds of thousands In con verting smooth bores to ride ordnance through tbs sgency of Norman Wiard or any other Inventor. There will be found less money to spend ea improvements of etas is anginas, elc,, ami hi butid- lag new ships of wsr out of sfew old Umbers under the appropriation for repair*. Tb# Jblll pro posed by tbe Sob-Committee reduces the number of satiated men in the navy from 8,500 to 7.50 Q. Tbe rank aod file of tho Marine Corps ia not disturbed,bot It la provided that tbs officers, now numbering KM, •ball bs . _ (ißAPthtxxT niDtrosp by the earaalttea at tbe service, each « death, mig ration, etc., until (here shall be eevsoty-flre, which shall be the permanent establishment. When a va cancy occurs It U not to be filled, but the present of ficer* are not to be Interfered with. Tbe Committee baa considered at several meetings pa propriety of discontinuing several of tbs >e*a important navy-yards, and thus effect a considerable saving to the Government, for tbe reason that tha yards In nutation are inaccessible, and In some cues tbe work done at them costs more tb&n at mot* central yards. Tha yards it was proposed to discontinue were those at Washington, Boston, New London, sad Rlltery, It was, however, dodded that soon a coomb was inexpedient, and instead of stopping work entirely and removing tha machinery and supplies as proposed iti pre vious bills, the Committee concluded that it was beet to make small appropriations for three yards, sufficient to prevent the machinery from spoiling, and to keep tbe •applies In order. The bill will be referred to (he full Committee to morrow, and reported to the House on Friday or Hate nrday. Hew Town, Msy 3.—Tbe Bub-Commlttce of the House of Representatives' Committee on Naval Affairs took testimony to-night in connection with Brooklyn Navy-Yard affairs. Startling disclosures have been made by some witnesses. The report will contain toms astounding facta, and Ik fa rumored that several par ties ora implicated. Washington. D. 0., May 3.—'The White lloubo Committee on Civil Service Reform boa decided to investigate the stories according to which Miss Sweet, the Chicago Pension Agent, for a consid erable time it alleged to have paid Ben Camp* boll, United States Marshal of the Northern Die* triot of Illinois, and ihe father-in-law of Qen. Babcock, a considerable sum of monoy monthly. The investigation is also to cover the allegation that Miss Bweet, by the same means, was com pelled to pay and did pay some $3,000 on an account of the late Chicago Pension Agent, David Dlakeley. UiM Sweet has already been anmmoncd, and la ex pected to arrive here very toon. In connection with this story a statement is made that the knowledge of those payments was brought to the attention of the iTesideut last summer, when be forbade her paying any more money to any person for similar reasons, and assured her that she could retain her ptaro during lus administration. It Is alau aafd that the Committee will Inquire into tho reasons which led to the appointment under Mias Sweet to an alleged sinecure place of Qeorge Campbell, a relation of Ben jamin Campbell. ADDITIONAL TESTIMONY It STUBS THE FOREIGN Washington, D. 0., May 3.—At the meeting of tho Committee on Foreign Affairs to-day. in tbe matter of Gon. Gehensk, bis counsel said if the Committee should be of the opinion that certain correspondence of Park, BcbencK. and •Fisher was proper to be considered, he would waive all objection, and leave tho Committee perfectly free to act. It was decided by the Committee that tho papers which have already found their way mlo pant should not be re ceived u evidence, hut if Gen. Bchsnck desired to moke a statement he waa at liberty to do eo. Gen. Sebenck said that, while it waa true he give Fisher inch Information aa he possessed, U waa UTTERLY UNTRUE he had any stock operations with him. As to Duncan, be did not know who he was. Bcbenek said he never telegraphed Chesehrough to sell 2,000 shares of Emma Mine slock, and such shares were never sold. Tbe nae of gchendc’s name by Flahor waa without author ity. The question as to tbe interlineation of two words in Ocn. Scnenck’s letter of resignation hiving been again Introduced, Mr. UewlU said he bad lieen repre sented in tho Associated Press re]>ort as saying yester day tbe interlineations were in Park's handwriting, whereas ha said they were in Schenck’s handwriting. LYON made a statement in support of portions of bis former testimony. He uld ho eaw tho original loiter of reslg nstlon of Gen. Nchcnck as Director of the Kmma Mine Company; at least it so purported to be. Thure waa no reference In It to the mine or sham, but it stated he resigned only because ho did not want to give his political enemies an opportunity to criticise his con duct. Park said to witness ; “i dftn’t like this letter, andl am going to have a bettor one from Bchenck.* Tbe Impression of witness was that Park wrote the final letter of resignation, and Scbenck copied It from Park's manuscript. There was nothing about which he was more positive than these two letters of resigna tion. U. A, Johnson gave bla testimony, and corrolxrrated what Lyon aald concerning the two letters of resigns- Uoo. AdJcurnwL Washington, D, 0.. May 3.—Caulfield’s Com alttoo hod another season with Mr. Davenport to-day. Tbo Chairman tried to make him an swer according to tbo liking of the Democrats, —that la, by yea or no,—but bla moat aunoyiug way of explaining matters at length waa again too much for tbe Committee, and they look a rest till to-morrow, when they will try him again. (fa /h* Attvehutd jy/w.l Washington, D. C., May 3,—Before tbe Commutes on Expenditures in ttU Department of Jostle*/ John Davenport testified that be could not procure any par ticular set of vouchers that would caver tbe particular Bum of $30,000, received from Whltely, but be could furnish vouchers running from tbo time when be first received any money In IHTJ, up to tbo time when bo bad expended it in 1871, covering every dollar that ho bad received, lie produced the vouchers. The Com mittee desired tbo witness to produce every oilier voucher in bla poesaoilon, so that bo might !>e able to eny to tbe Commltloo that be had produced every vouchor that be waa able to produce. Adjourned. THE PACIFIC RAILROADS. UNION PACIFIC TERMINUS. Special Ihtpaleh to J ftt Chicago TViAune. CLAPP. Washington, D. 0., May 3.—The House Com mittee on Pacific Railroads at its meeting to-day considered a bill forbidding the Union Pacific Railroad to charge any higher rate of toll for tbo transportation of freight or passengers across the Omaha bridge than for earning the same over an equal distance on any other part of tbo rood. Thu effect of this bill, should it become a law, will be to carry into effect the late decis ion of tbe Supreme Court of the United fltstca which declared the Omaha bridge to be a part of tbe Union Pacific Railroad. Tbe Committee also took up lor consideration a bill presented by Mr. Throckmorton to provide for tbo completion of the Texas I*Bolllo Railroad. The bill intends the time for the completion of the road un der existing laws eight years, provided the Company shall construct UI mllre of rosd during the first year, thus completing tho main stem of the line to Fort Worth, und the Sherman Brunch, and that during every subsequent year It shall complete st leva! 50 miles of rosd ou the eastern end and •jo miles on (be western, beginning the latter at Ban Diego, Cal. If the Company compiles with this condition the bill proposes to revive tbe land-grant already uado to the road, but does not require tbe Government to guarantee the Interest on tbo bunds of the Company or extend to it any aid not already guaranteed. The bill contains a clause to Erotuut the rlgbU uf homestead settlers on public mis which may bs covered by tbe railroad grant. At tbe request of Mr. I .amor, Chairman of tbe Com* mittoe, a vote on tbe bill was postponed until tbe next ueellug. AMERICAN AND MEXICAN CLAIMS. A NXW TUXATt. DisvaUh to Tin Chicago 7ti6utm.

Ho entered into to elab orate review of the postal railway system, showed its great advantage to tbo people, and declared himself opposed to any legislation that would (end to cnpplo tbe efficiency of that ser vice. Ho bolieved, however, that tbe ex penses could be greatly reduced. His plan for rcdoctag them was to distribute the amount of transportation more equitably among railroad*, giving tbe grraUst advantage to malit of (be most importance. Tim ho considered could best Iw accomplished by paying a uniform rale per lineal foot for postal car apace, the amount of space re quired to bo exhausted at tbe beginning of each quar ter upon tbe baaia of tbe business of the preceding three months.

Miles. the Vermont convict, bu sent another letter More relative to the cafe-burglary with which bo was connected. In tins letter be gives tlie names of Harrington, Geo. Bibcock, John O, Evaua, A. B.

B. was the originator of the thing. He conceived it. It was gotten up to break the force of thu Investigation as to false measurement, etc,, and something of the kind Dad to be done. Thu detail* of the Job were left to Harrington, and, after the scheme so miserably failed, he wac the master spirit In the chicanery that was practiced to cover the thing up, and turn the odium of the thing upon Ur.

There la reason to believe that RJlboorn's letter, which wae eo smart and Impudent, was written by ad vice of hi* counsel in tho hope that the House would again aummou him to tell nit story. Aa the matter stands now, tho District Courts will be compelled to try him under hla indictment, and counsel fear ho cannot escape tho penalty prescribed by tho statute. The impudent letter woa a clever trick in hu trial. THE LAKE-FRONT DILLS. The House Committee on Public Buildings and Grounds took no final action to-day on the Lake-Front bill. Tho three bills before the Committee are prac tically alike. All convey whatever right the Govern ment may have to the Lake-Front la (he City of Chicago, with the condition that the right* of all tur tles Im preserved. The only difference tu the talus is the phraseology by which the attempt ia made to pro tect those rights. Stevenson, of Illinois, based bis opposition to the admission of Xcw Mexico mainly upon the absence of the requisite population. He maintained that Us his tory during the 300 years since tho Hp&ntsh authori ties took possession of tt does not warrant its present admission. He said that with so area double that of the btato of Illinois, and almost three time* the aize of the State of hew York, the Territory, with a population of only 111,674. is applying for admission an a State. He contrasted New Mexico with the single county of Mo- Lean, Illinois, and showed that tho bill proposes to runatltutc Xew Mexico, with nue-balf the number of public schools and lees than one-twentieth of the pop ulation, exclusive of Indians and Mexicans, of thla single county, a State.
