Mr Davit* thought it better to let tUe subject drop Mr. Mo 1-j bad saiisfacto-ily repHled the charges made against, and & citizen of bis eminence could not niw be unfavorably affected by the letter. Mr. Sumner wanted to know the name of this spy, this earedropper. It was due to the country, and (1n>* to the eminent citizen wbc bad been so maligned. Mr. Hendricks said it was the duty of the Secretary of State to ask of Mr. Motley a deuial ol the charges. The Secretary had not made the correspondence public, but the Senator from Massachusetts bad Pending discussion, the morning boar expired, when the tariff bill was taken up.

Mr. Finck (0.) objected to the reception of thw rofinlntlan Toe Speaker decided that the Committee on Enrolled Hills baa leave to report at any time. Mr. Finck made the point that this was not an enrolled bill bui an original resolution. The Speaker said It bad a bearing upon the question ol enrolled bills. Mr. Trowbridge said this was the first time in the history of the country when bills sub* milted to tne President bad not been returned with or without hia approval. The bills bad become laws by lapse or time, and the resola. tion was simply to ascertain their whereabouts, and if they were not on file in the Slate Department a proposition would be made to take such action a* would secure a re-enrollment of the bills and their publication. Mr. Scbenck (Ohio) suggested that tbia was a new question, and the resolution should go further. The Secretary or State migbt answer that the law* were in bis Department, and tbat be intended to publish them, and they would tben appear without the approval of tbe President, and Congress should take such action as will show that the bills became laws by tbe default of tbe President. Tbe resolution was agreed to. The Speaker laid before the House a communication from tbe Secretary of war, transmitting the papera in relation to tbe purchase ef tbe steamship Illinois.

Mr. Hijcby (California) advocated tbe retaining of tbe Indian Hureao under the control of tbe Interior Department. Mr. Scbenck (Otiio) advocated bis amen ment, which la to transfer tbe Bureau to tbe War Department. He believed It woald pre\enttbe perpetration of wrongs, and It sboald be done on tbe score of economy. Mr. Kasson (Iowa) argued tbat tbe present system ol Indian affairs was a miserable fall* nre- ind under nrHant ?k- *- 1 ... , . . - <M I Uf^RlllCUlQ l-UB Al* * disss could not be civilized, unless to cbeat and swindle tbem was tbe proper process whereby to civilize tbem. Tbe wbole present system of Indian treaties must be abofisbed or else tbe United States must seetbat its faitb is kept wben treaties are made. Tbe Indians tftrmselves, be argued, prefer to have tbeir affairs managed by the military, and such management was more eonducive to peace between the Indians and the whites. Tbe treaties as carried on by traders and agents are continued trends, and this system cannot be allowed to centinne longer without Injustice to tbe bonor and dignity ot tbe United States.

Tbe ieae they bad to do with tbe military waa the bettor, for they worked mmtual corruption wben brought m contact wttb each other.
