HEWS FROM THE STATE CAPITAL Vke Fever o? tike Senatorial Question? Anxiety v tk? Politician#?Commotio* Over a iViumiialcatlok from tbe Vir ginia l<|liUtore-^?wli Belonging to Mk? I'ytted States, &c-i <k*? Alsaxt, Feb. 1,1M1. jtvrt to an effort being made this morning by the BnrtfOken to get the caucus postponed until Monday aTl pUg They are especially down on the snap judgme tht baa been taken on them by calling it oa Saturday nfcht, as a number of their friends aro away, besides, it pita off an arrangement that they bave made for as stotance from the reserved foroea of their army which Weed always brings up at the last hour. A peti tion has been extensively circulated this morning, r-hi"g the committee to reconsidor their action and call the caucus for Monday evening. Nearly sixty mombors signed the petition to change the call, but the Senate committee refused to back down, and at the hoar of writing this there is no prospect of s change in the bour of holding the caucus. It hsA caused a great deal of flat tering and no small amount of uneasiness as to the result, nod that very act may enoumpaas the defeat of Weed In the contest, for the only thing that ho wants is a little time, and he wM secure the nomination of William 11 Evarts as sure as tbe cauous meets. Ills men are ou band from all parts of the State, and are exceedingly ?ctive. It will be a wonder if even tbe procure that is bow brought to bear on tho members, does not settle tin qustion in favor of Evarts even to-morrow night. All tho Btate officers, except Campbell, are working like troopers for Evarts. Hoses H. Griacell and John A. King have also taken the iield, and ore marshalling their forces in the same work. Then thcro is a no small army from different portions of tho State. Tboro is Tbomp ?on, of I>eroy, Genesee county; Pomeroy, mem ber of Congress from Seward's district, tho per son to whom Littlejobn owes his election for Speaker; E. C. Johnson and Delafield Smith, of New York, in connection with a largo number of others who aro constantly on active duty. Ia any ordiuary light, with the army of assistants, sappers and miners, there would be no possible chance to defeat the Albany chief, Sot this is an extraordinary contest; the like has not been seen in this quarter before. Weod bad a hard tight six years ego upon the same question, when he succeeded to splitting tbe American party; bat then he was pushiag forward a man whom tbe entire republican party demanded, and now he is backing a man that baa no strength with the pcoplo. Tbe moment you cross that Jumping off place, tho Cayuga bridge, he * finds It uphill business to stem the tide. Weed ia going to succeed In this contest; if not on one man it will be on another, and I am satisfied that he has his arrangements all made to transfer his forces to a third man if it becomes neoessary to prevent a Waterloo defeat. There are strong indications litis morning that it will not be nccessury for him to leave Evarts .md take up any other man. Tbe contest Is no boys' pUy, and oue that is drawing out tbe forces on both tides to its fullest extent; but Weed has tho advantage of bis opponents. He knows bis men In all parts of tho State and who to summon to accomplish the work desired. His aid de-camps are men that have stood beside bim to many a hard fought battle, duriug which he has had an opportunity to test their valor and power on many a battle field, and cau rely upon them now, it mat tors not bow bitter they fijrht. The roported change from Greeley to Evarts makes his nomination sure on the third or fourth ballot. These changes may not have all taken place, but some of them I know to have been ma lo, and save no reason to doubt but that others are in the same Mst. Evarts, this morning, states that there is more than enough already promised to secure his nomination, and that be is perfectly sure of being the successor of William H. Seward. It is bat due to tho other side that thoy nre equally confident somebody Is going to be cheated. Kay mond is here and liard at work. The House was thrown into a commotion th's morning by a message from the Governor, transmitting messages from t e Governors of three or four of tho South-jru States, returning, by the order of their several legtali turcg, the IJtllejohn resolutions, recently adopted by both branches of thla legislature, under the excitement of tbe events In regard to the Star of tho West and the special message of President Bin han ia to Congress. These resolutions request that no such resolutions be again Sent to them. A sharp d< bate took placo as ti what dispo sition should be made with tbem. One wanted to lay them on tho table, another to refer them to the Committee on Federal Relations, and still others to return them to the States from which they emanated. They wore, however, after a short debate, laid on tho table, (hj way all such resolutions are disposed of. A motion was made by Mr. Fish, of Montgomery, to exclude the communication from Virginia from the Jour nal of the House. This was favored by Messrs. Prince, Birdsuliand Wright, and opposed by Messrs. Robinson. Hjland and Cozaxis. Tho motion was. however, adopted by a lanre vote. Tho communication will not, therefore, be entered upon tho Journal of tho House. There was a great deal of feeling manifested throughout. Some of the republicans got on their dignity and felt themselves insulted. They do Lot consider, lioworer. thai poopio South of Mason and Mxon's line have foellugs like tho rest of the human family, and if the republican* fool in suited at tbe return of the resolut ons, have not the South ? good reason to l?e excited undor tho raids against theinr But littio else was done in tiio House of Importance. Several bills were reported from ths committee, among which was tho bill to appoint refereos in tho First judidial district. This was reported ad versely to. An anti Rent bill was also reported, under tho title to prevent involuntary servitude ia the Slato. This is thj new shape that element of controversy has turned up in our midst. Several bills were read the third time and passed, but mostly of a local nature and of no general importance. Aside from tho commotiou on the message from the Uovornor, with the communication from the Southern States, nothing transpired worthy of note. The regular bill providing for the maintenance of tho can tls of tho State parted the Senate this morning. This is simply meeting the provisions of tbe constitution, and is the same that has to be past>od every year, as a mat ter of form. Senator Manierro offered tbe following, which was laid over under the rules ? Whereas by the thirteenth section of an act, entltlod on act to rcgultto tho deposits of public money, ai> proved the 28th of June, 1*30. tho sum of $4,014,600 7/>, belonging to tho l/nitcd Stales, was deposited for sale keeping; and whereas this Bute, by an act of tho Legislature passed on the 10th day of January, 1H37, agreed to receive the sai l money on deposit, aud iuvlo lably pledged tbe faith of the State for Its safe keeping and repayment whenever tbe same should be required by tbe ?'ecretary of the United States Treasury;and where v, In the pre-ont disturbed condition of tho country, It Li the duty en this State, by all possible eilorts, to support the authority of tbe federal government and custain its credit; and whereas it is believed that the afore.md deposit of money with this State miy bo instrumental In sustaining the public crsdit by pie Igmg it as security for the repayment of a loan by tho L'niled States to thj amovnt of such d? posit; Therefore, belt rusolved, (If the Assembly concur), That upou tb? request of the Secretary of the Treasury of the United States, tho Comptroller of this State he a-i thorized and required, under his hand and tbe seal of tho State, to guarantee the payment of the principal and in terest of any bands of the I'nlted States to the amount of the monejs belonging to the United States which were received by this state under the before mentioned act of tbe 28th day of June, 1886. and are now',In Its custody for safo keeping. Aumvt, Feb. 1?12 M. Tue special session] of the House this evening, on tho appointment of Commissioners, was an Interesting one Tbe galleries and lobbies were packed full, and a large ?umber were within the bar. ELo discussion over ?trlking out the democratic names In the list reported was somewhat spicy, and It was gratifying to sec such republicans as l.ittlejohn, Robinion, i'ierce, Ciuip and others, rising above tbe partisan, and taking a decisive stand of sending Commisnoners with rat making It a party concern. All amendments were promptly voted down, with the exception of that to fix the number of votes to be cast by tho Commission at tlvo. The re port of the majority of the committee, with the nam'* of the commissioners precisely as reported, was adopted by a vote nf 71 to 39. This is an unexpected triumph. Tnere has been an earnest and active electioneering going on throughout tho day against sending the CotumW tfoners. and but few men believed that tbe report Of the committee would be adopted. The couservativo republicans, assisted by Weed, who seized upon the mem be" at bis party on Thursday, to concur with the report, finally triumphed, and have succeeded In adopting by a stgilfl 'ant majority, a triumph indeed over the hittero;> C<s ti. n that they liad to contend with. It now his top > the Senate, and will be taken up there tomorrow, when it will have to go through a severe ti-st. The r ?m mission Is not out of the woods, for It is not going to re ceive tbe snpport of alt the democratic members of that body. The senatorial canvassei* aro quite numerous Sli ce the adjournment of the evening session Hie tally lists are being run over to see If tbere.h?s tieon nr.y change. We have three nvn to ntgbt sure of a nomiua tlon of the second ballot. The friends of Gre?*|oy were never more sanguine than they are to-night, and claim Sixty redes on the first ballot, or one more than enough to nominate. Tbe Evarts msnsgers claim fifty-eight on the first b>i!lot. and enough accessions from tho Harris to place him out of danger on tho second ballot. Some of tbo more confident figure Evart's to on the first ballot. Tbe Harris sldo bave also em paper upwards of thirty votes. Some body must be cheatod. It must be borne in mind Uiat the Greelcv side were the nearest In their count of Upeakor. The highest that any of thorn claimed was 47 and others only 42?the precise number that they did get, whilst the Weed side were figuring from fifty t" sixty, and only started out with 3A. If the (Jre?|ey side bave counted as close on this they are out of the woads. ?y ewn canvass gives Frarts 4ft, Greeley 43, Harris 23. the balance scattering, on the first ballot. After thai toere Is no telling the combinations that will be made Toe pressure is enormous on all sides, and important changes may be made before tbe cauous meets. RKW YORK LEOIBLATl'HK. ?ennte.

The Assembly met this evening to consider as the tpecial order, the resolutions for the appointment of com missioners to Washington, In accordance with the Vlrgiuia resolutions. Mr. FrLuotToi* spoke in opposition to the appointment of the Commissioners. He was not willing that one Jot or title of the republican principles should be yielded. He believed with the minority of the committee and pro tested that the Commission was revolutionary in cha racter. Mr. Fihu moved to amend the report by striking out the whole of It and requesting the Governor to appoint nine citizens from the State to act as Commissioners. Mr. Mom;an was opposed to tho amendment and to the Commission. He disapproved of the whole proceedings from beginning to end, but If the Commissi joers were sent at all they should be members of the republican party. Mr. Kerky desired to keep the appointment within the House. He hoped that the question would be so embar I rasfed as to defeat tho whole proposition. After further debate the amendment was lost by 36 to 63. Mr. Morgan moved to amend tbe report by striking out the names of Krostus Corning, Greene C. Brooson and Addison Gardner, and Inserting thoso of John A. King, H. R. 8elden and G. W. I'attersoo. Before ho would con sent to and any democrat on such a mission ho would Bufler his head to be severed from his body. Mr. Koiu.sho.v opposed the amcnumerit. Ue Inquired, If war should come, whether all but republicans are to be excluded. He thought the amondmunt unfair, illiberal and improper. After a warm debate the amendment was voted down by a voto of 37 to 76. Mr. Fujekton moved to strike out all the Commission ers' names and insert the names of our Senators and re publican representatives In Congress from this State. Lost. Mr. PiERfK moved an amendment to the report that a majority of tbe nine Commissioners shall decide how the live votes are to be Cast. Carried. After several attempts to drive oif final action tho re port and resolutions wore adopted, by ayes 72, nays 39. A'ljourucd. Carting In the Central Parle. THE Pi OTSMAN 8 OKKAT GAME?MATCH FOR THE LOCAL MEl) U MATCH BKTWEKS THE CALEDO NIANS AND THE HVbSONS ?A GREAT MATCH YES TERDAY, ETC., KTC. The curling pond lately has had extra attractions for lovers of the game In tbc fact that three m:;tchos were to be played, one for the local medal? an Insignia of championship?of the Thistle Club, the others for the honor of beating, and many "braw Scotchmen'' were present. In the former Instance the members of the Thistle played what Is known as a point game. To ex plain this to the uninitiated we will doscribo how tho ice is marked out. A clean, level piece of Ice is first chosen, and having been carefully swept, is then measured off to the length of about flfty yards, by say Ave yards in width. A line is drawn across this length midway, which is called the "middle litio." Twelve yards from either side of this line Is another line di across, which is denominated tho "hog score." Seven yards farther from tho middle on either side Is another line, culled tho Sweeping score." Around the mil die of this cross lino at each end are drawn circles of the relative radii of seven, four and two and a half feet, and the centre of these circles is callcd the "tee." Tho Wea are, therefore, thirty-eight yards apart. In a continual straight line with the tee*, and four >art's distant from each, a circle eighteen inches In diameter is drawn a little to the left of tho central or Icogthwi e line, and at this point the plajer stands while playing or throwing tho curling stone- To render his footing steady an iron footboard or "crumpet ' is used, which, having spikes, Jtc , to catch the ice, prevents the player slipping. The stonea, which weigh from thirty live to flfty i>ounds, are then thrown with a gliding mot ion along the ice, and the count tan only be made in the "rink" game when the ktone stops within the outer or seven feet circle. In the point game the following constitute the counts:? 1. Striking?A stone placed on tho "tee" to be (track out of the circle. 1. Inwichiny?One stone is placed on tho "tee," and another two l'et-t distant therefrom, at an angle of 45 degrees?the playod stone to hit ugainst the latter, and perceptibly move the former. 8. braviny?I Ik' stonu played to lie within the circle. 4 GitarUirip?Mio stone played to rest, however little, on the central lice. 6. Chap awl lie?A Btone placed on the tee to be struck out of the tirclc, but the stone played to lie with in kt. 6. Wick and Curl in?A st.ine placed sevoa feet dis tant from tho tee at sn angle of 45 decrees, the stouo played to hit on this stone and rest within the circle. 7. Raiting?A stone placed seven feet from the too In a direct line with tho player, to be struck into the circle. 8. CKtjpitui the Winner? (rtio stone placed on the tee, another in front of it nt a distance of ten feet, half guarding It; the stone played to pass the guard, and per ceptibly move the other. In this gumo every successful shot counted one for the player, and yeeterdsy, as each wm made, or very well attempted, tho maker w.is s.iluted by such salutes as "That's like It, Wullle," "Well Intended, my callen," iic. In the last point, if the guard stone were "truck, the cry of "That's married. <wx>rdie," would be beard. The throws were nearly all very well made, but tho outcry of "Aye, mon, look nt that 1 All through the crooked ice,'' when feme well Intended aim went astray, showed that tho surface wad not altogethi r favorable lor the g tme. Notwithstanding this disadvantage tho three highest numbers of shots ma le were:?icorge Ckmlaey (tho winner of the tnedal), 0; .lames Thomson, H; .Joseph l oss, 7. The medal wnspf silver, seut from Kdinburg to tr.o club, and bad a representation on one side of curlers at their game. At tho end of the game came the presen tation of the medal, which ceremony is rather amusing. A curling, stone is placed on the ioe. and the ?' lucky felkiw ' is se-ited tlieieon. As the stotie will revolve on its axis readily, the seated one is turned around and around by the encircling crowd, until they think him In the proper position for tho honors. Tho Presi dent of tho dub (Mr. J. C. Mi'tirigor) steps into the circle, and with u serio-comic addr<ss, places the blue ribbon of the mwlnl around the winner s neck, pro nouncing him',King of tiie Curlers." striking him three Iitnes on the top of the head with his open h;>nd. Tho President then leaves the circle, and the eorn blooms of h;s fellow players drop ea* li tluoe times on the poor fel low's he,id with no slight force. Of course, It is all taken in pood |art, nnd heat ty laughter ensue*. Tlie match between the Caledonians and the flidsons was simply a "rink game," four members from each club playing on either side, each member having a pair of curling stones. The match lasted several hours, ending after five I'. M., and the following was the count?Cale donians. 06, Ilu<i?ons. 16. The latter is, however, but a yourg club, compared with tho former. These two matches were played ou Thursday, and ex clt< d much attention; but the grand match of tli? present season took place yesterday between the Thistle and Caledonian flubs. The game was played by twenty eight iii< mbers aslile, mak tig seven "rinks," and the result ot the match was slity two shots In favor of the CWe donians. The following is the score:? aw?*u*. nrmrw*.

To day m match Is to take place between the Cale donian and Thistle Clubs, each side to have tWnnty elght members." Some excellent play is expected. The curling pond is close to tho Sixth avenue entrance of the t*arfr. Some fun ensued ye?terdav from persons unused to the game trying to throw the stones, many tim> s the novice finding himself Hying from off bis feet in the contrary direction to which the stone went.

TBI FAK1 AND ACB1?\ KKKNT8 OP THK IRISB SOL" IUER AT BOMJC AMD ABROAD. A largs and respectabl# audience VAi mbN but Tues day evening in Irving Hall to bear tbe lecture of Mr. John llullaly. editor of the JMrepoMan Seconi, for tbe benefit of tbe Institution under tbe charge of tbe Sinters of Mercy. There were about twelve hundred persons present, who listened wMh much interest to the lecture, which ww repeatedly interrupted during its delivery by tbe enthnsiastio applause of the audience. Tbe i>latform was occupied by a considerable number of gentlemen, among wh?m were the Very Rer. Vm. Starrs, V.G., Rev. A. Donnelly, Rev. Mr. Curran, Rev. Mr. Mangin and others. The lecturer wax introduced by Dr. FinneU, the President of the Catholic Library Association, which body was also well represented on the oooasloo. Mr. Mullaly commenced by stating that be had selected M the subject of his lecture?" rhe Fame and Achieve ments of the Irish Soldier at Home and Abroad.'* He had, he said, announced this as its title, but he found on examination Out there was really no word in tho Irish language which bore the same signification as the English term "soldier. ' Tho word soldier means literally a man who fights for pay, while the Irish term which bears the nearost approach to it, is "caraore," which, interpreted) igniQes "a doer ol victory.'' There was another fact wbicb he would state as no less creditable to the Irish people; It is that tbe word "coward" is unknown to its language, a circumstance wbicb tells more plainly than words the character of the nation in this par ticular There is, be proceeded, no nation in the world whose military annals are more full of hercic and glorious deeds than those of the Irish peo ple. and cerUioly none whose records extend over a wi der field, for Irishmen have been found among the sol diers of every nation, and it is to be said with regret that it is to their prowess in battle and to their great military genius that Englund is largely lndobted for her present powerful position among the nations of the earth. In every land their bravery has been recognized, and in the ranks of nil nations they have risen to the moat dis tinguished and exalted positions. In Hpain the name of Sarsfleld, tho heroic defender of "the City of tho liroken Treaty," shines with undiminished lustre besido tho bruveBt and boldest of Iberia's chieftains, and even at tho prevent day the glory of tbe O'Donnoils is agnin revived in the achievements of tho brave General who has lately won such unfailing laurels in tho dominion of tbe ^Moorish Sultan. The Muc Mahons and o'Neils* who went over to tho European continent two or throo centuries ago have again appear*d before the world in their brave descend ants, whose skill and intrepid valor convertod the hard fought battles of Mugentu and KoU'erluo into French vic tories. It was tho Irish General De I*cy who won tho Crimea from tho ruler of Stnmboul and added to the do minions of the Czar of all the Russia*. The lecturor took up the cliarge of Voltaire, tlint "the Irish always fought badly at home." and proved that It whs not sustained by the tacts of history. In this connection he spoke of the great victories whieh had been won on Irish soil against the English enemy, dwelling at length on the buttlo of Beubuib, the sieges of 1 an prick and Athlone, tho conduct of the undisciplined and badly armed patriots of '98, relating many interesting incidents in tho war waged by Will am of Orungo and James n. for tho English throne. Ho then spoke of the brilliant deeds *f the Irish brigade in Europe, ('escribed the battles of Kontonoy, Luzara. the siege of Cremona and other brilliant achieve ments in which they played a prominent part, and iu which they sustained their high military reputation. Were 1 to mention, raid the lecturer,overy field on which the brigade fought, I would bo obliged to give a catalogue of the battle fields of Europe during their slay upon the Continent. You can track them over every laud: In l'ranee, and Spain, and Austria; in the rocky defiles and fastnesses of Savoy; on the plains of Flanders, and on the fruitful fields of Sicily. They have proved their valor against every race and nation. Cremoua against Aus tria, at Kouteuoy against the Eng isli, at Stolhoven against the Hungarians, at I/mvain against the French, at Dudeuhaven against the Swedes, at Marsiglia against the Germans, at Luzara against tho Danes, at Oberklaw against the Dutch, at the Ketorto against tho Prussians, at liarcelona against the Spaniards, in Tyrol against the Swiss, and in Savoy against tbe Pledmontese. It is too late in the day for any English scribbler to ca.ll them cowards. Tbe desceudants of those men who ex torted applause from Gustavus Adolphus, and whose very appearance on the field made l'rinco Eugene change his order of battle at Luzara, of the men who repelled the continued charges of Montecuooii's cavalry, fighting un der the eyes of their veteran commander, and covered tbe retreat of tho French army on tho glorious day of Aitenbclui, can aflurd to despise the malignant falsehoods of the London Timtt. But why, It maybe asked, said the lecturer, vby is it that with all tholr bravery,

with all thtfo?victories, with a courage which no reverses can subdue?how comes it that Ireland is still th" subject of another country? The answer is simple. There is one weapon against which tho dauntless heroism of the soldier has never succeeded, and against which the pa triots of other lands have struggled in vain. It is the 1 weapon of treachery and deceit?a weapon which the Saxon foe knows so well bow to wield: a weapon with which she has so long sought to break up our ol glo rious I'tiion. and In which she will succeed if tbe states men to whom the country is now looking with such an anxious, earnest gaze are unfaithful to th;ir sacred tre.-t, or unequal toflke dlschi'geof the great rosponsi bilities resting upon them. The re.isoti why Ireland h'i.s net been successful in her long and oft renewed struggle for independence is to be found in tho policy of a foe which has always acted in accordance with tho huso maxim, " Divide and ooiKjuor." In conclusion the lecturer referred to tbe conduct of the Irish Brigade in 11.o servieo of the Pope, and which during the past year performed such feats of bravcr> anil heroism at Ppole to, CasMfidordo and Ancnna, quoting tho words of I amor icier*, a general who had 3>en French troop) in action und who had witnessed the intrepidity of a Zouave charge, that had ho but live tbousind Irish soldiers he emild have swept the wl ole Peninsula Although tho lecture occupied two hours In its delivery, it was listened to with unabated interest to tho end.
