Mr. Kelley and perhaps (wo or three other mem bora are ?tin to ipeik, and then the bill will be reoommittod for actio* at the next session. It la seen by the lrlenda of the measure that It cannot paaa the Senate now, and that the oountry, Intent upon a Presidential election, lakes Utile tatereat In the queatton. In the House, ?Ten, the bili could not be paesed without long dissua sions and a good deal or friction, and nobody believes it .dectreble to bring op so large a toplo at thta late date, when hot weather la looked for and a good deal oi unfinished business la still on hand. Meantime the House seems to bo Inclined to support General Ward's resolution lor the appointment of com mistioners to ascertain whether we cannot trade with Canada upon more advantageous terma than tno present, and it la probable that Mr. Ward will aeek to enlarge the powers of the commission o aa to Include Mexico. It is said that reciprocity with Canada and Mexico would give us an advantageous commerce with about 15,000,000 of people, who would be large con? turners of our manuiaotures, and whoae demand would be sufficient, if it wore once established, to aet all our mills and other manufacturing industries folng again on a profitable basis. THX NEW YORK DEMOCRACY?AMAZEMENT OF DEMOCRATS IN WASHINGTON AT THX MUDDLE W THE STATE?MR. TILDEM'B DIFFICULTY MB. batabd's OPPORTUNITY. Recent political developmenta In the democratic party of New York cause a good deal of amazement here, where, antil quite reoontly, there wss a growing belief In Mr. Tilden'8 strength, founded on the asertions of his friends and on the fact that he seemed to have a yood deal of strength hi some parta of the South. The attack by Mr. Keiley, supplemented by what has followed, seems to democrats here like the drawing of a curtain, disclosing a condition ol things unexpected to many, but foreseen by the best In. formed. It was said by a Pennsylvania member two weeks ago that the New York delegation contained, he believed, about twenty-five Tilden men, twenty of whom might give him a complimentary vote and twenty-Ave who would not support him Badar any conditions. Thla was thought an extrava gant statement a> the time, but when repeated to-day ?body who heard it thought of contradicting it. The fapjprterj of Mr. .XUdau do sot, however, give up all nop* They imagine there will be a turn of the tide and say that New York will have to furnish the money for election expenses, and that it will lurnisb more for a New York candidate than for any other. They say, too, that the Ohio movement will need to bo faced down by a strong man, and that Mr. Tliden tstbe man to do it better than any other, fhos they insist that in two ways Mr. Tilden Is a ne cessity to tho party. But the answer la made that Mr. . ?ayard answers to all tho conditions. claimed for Mr. Tilasn, and that he copld unite tho warring factions in New York, beimr unobjectionable to all of them. The irtends of Mr. Bayard aay that he has all tbe good qualities of Mr. Tilden, represents the samo principles and has maintained thfem as courageously and ably, and that hla nomination would call out genuine enthusiasm everywhere aa denoting a new departure for the demo cratic party and the cutting loose from many embarrass ing relations of the past. ACTIVITY OP THE SOFT MONET DEMOCRATS? ANOTHER ATTEMPT AT THE REPEAL OP THE RESUMPTION ACT?ATTITUDE OP THB HARD MONET MEN. The soft money men bar* renewed tbelr activity. Id the caucus held to-night Mr. Neil, or Ohio, intro duced a resolution:? * That it la tne sense of this caucus tbat the Com mute* ob Junking and Currency be instructed to bring In immediately a bill for the unconditional repeal ot (be resumption act. Iherewaa an apprehension that this would pass, a ?amber of bard monoy men, especially Now Yorkers, 1 being absent; but a substitute was moved by Mr. Randall:? Resolved, Tbat the Committee on Rules b* instructed to make a rule authorising the Committoe on Banking ai:d Currency to report at any time. And this was passed. The Committee on Banking and Currency has bad a majority against the repeal, bat this Is lessened by the absence of Mr. Randall <?lb eon, who has gone to New Orleans as chairman of the investigation committee. Still, If the republican mem bars ol the oommlttee stand Arm they, with Mr. Cox, (he chairman, and Mr. Wike, of Illinois, two bard money democrats, can prevent a report lor repeal. The friends of sound carreucy on the democratic Mde ara not dismayed Their leaders aro men who will not give up to intlaiion or soft money. There is no doubt tbat they would prefer defeat of the party to | being dragged at the heels ol the colt money leaders. Tho democratic party must come Into power with sound principles or else it is of no use, for It would go oat at the end of lour years for a long period. Said a , democrat here, speaking of this matter:? '?We don't want to come in for a single term and go Ht In disgrace." FROM OUR REGULAR CORRESPONDENT.

Since tbo introduction of the bill by Mr. Harden tergh, of New Jersey, (or tho removal of the powder magasine at Ellis Island, New York Harbor, a ? n-at deal of interest has been taken in it by the New York delegation in Its iavor. It appears that an immense amount of powder, exceeding 160 tons. Is stored within ?00 leet ol the Now Jersey Central Depot, and It is re garded as very dangeron* tu navigation and lifo in the lietgnborhood, besides beiag a groat detriment to tbo property in the vicinity on the Jersey slioret Par ten years past the Ordnance Department of the Navy has runoramended Its removal Tlw fre fnent etplostoas recently baa called especial ottAtion to this great source ol danger, which ia only one half a nltle distant from New York. A largo amount ol nitro glycerine I* also stored on Moant Tom, the little rocky Island near Bllla Island. H. A. Wise, Chief of the Bureau of Ordnance, in his report to the Secretary of the Navy daring the second sessloa ol the Thirty eighth Congress, ltd and ISM, on page uinety>niue, asserts that a groat necessity existed lor the removsl of the powder magaatnea in close proximity to the gtn of Me* York, Hasten and Philadelphia, and ?eyas?

The report on General Soheack's case has provoked a great deal of oommant between members of Congress outside tbe debate. Mr. Hewitt's speech was a power ful denunciation ot tha- foolish ex-Mlalster. He man aged to say la U n good deal that he oould not get Into a unanimous report Several frleuds of General Sbheack were at first desirous of spoalciug to tbe ques tion and of answering Mr. Hewitt's severe strictures, hut they came to tho conclusion that they could not afford to stand np aad make a good aatured excuse lor the accused ex-Minister. Judge Kelley, of Pennsyl vania, expressed great regret to-night at the report of tho commi'.tee; hot, though he bad been In Congress eigbt years with Mr. Soheack, four of which he served in committee with him, he did not think that be could woU afford to apeak In hit defence. Rusk, of Wiscon sin, who is an ardent friend of Mr. Sobenck, expresses himself quite forcibly in regard to tbe republican mem bers or tho commutes, on aooount of their agreeing to make the report, and also about the fact that they so agreed to it as a compromise, in order to save the re flections made originally aga nst the administration. ILLINOIS FBOK A CONKLINO STANDPOINT.

The Sub-Judlciury Committee investigating tbe charges against ex-Speaker Blaine reported to tbe lull : committee to-day tbe fact that objection bad been ! made by Jndge Lawrence to tbe admissibility of the ! question propounded by Oeneml Hunton to the witness , j Sickles as to what he had heard from any parties In ' Arkansas on tne subject ol Inquiry. Mr. McCrary, of { Iowa, offered a resolution that the sub-committee, in , I continuing the investigation, should not receive bear* | | say testimony except to the extent of tbo name and residence of any person alleged lo have some know, j : ledge of tbe matter under investigation. After con- j ; siderable discussion this resolution was defeated by j | a strict party vote. Mr. Hurd then offered a resolution i to the effect that the resolution of tho full committee I authorizing a sub-committoe to conduct tbe investiga tion did not authorize any Investigation of the ques tion whether a corrupt use of bonds was made to procure investigation, unless It related to tbe Little Kock and Arkansas bonds, which came into possession of tbe Union l'acitio Company. This resolution was agreed to. On motion of Mr Lynde, the committee thereupon : resolved that the objection made by Mr. Lawrenco to j Mr. Sickles' answering the question in dispute was well < taken, and must be sustained. This latter action was ! understood to be based by the democratic mqjority on ! the ground that tbe matter referred to In tbe question is not within the jurisdiction or the committee, It not ! having been made a subject of inquiry by tbe resolu j tion of tho House. The republican minority of the ) committee voted lor Mr. Lynde's resolution, nowever, on the ground simply that it provided for tho exclu sion of ?omo hearsay testimony. ; THE HEW TOBK CUSTOM HOC8E INVESTIGATION. The Committee of Ways and Means to dsy heard ; Representative Payne ou tbe resolution heretofore adopted by the House on his motion requesting the Committee of Ways and Means to mako a thorough in. | vesngatloo into tbo management and direction of the New York Custom House, and us to the changes and ' reforms necessary to moro onormally enforce tbe laws for tbo collection of tbe customs revenue. The com* mittoe took no dollnlto action ou the subject. They are somewhat embarrassed by the latoncss of the session, ; and undetormlned as to whether they will propose to the House I hat the investigation shall take plaoe during > tbe receis ol Congress. ACTION or TBS SENATE COMMITTEE O* APPBO PKIATION'B ON THK LEGISLATIVE. EXECUTIVE AND JUDICIAL APPROPRIATION BILL. Tbe Senate Commutes on Appropriations to-day : | struck out l>t the Legislative, Executive and Judicial i ; Appropriation bill, which is now under consideration , by them, the whole of the second, third, fourth, Attn : and sixth section'. These sections provide for the ten per cent reduction of all salaries ef clerks In the Executive departments, prohibit political sesessments, require the Secretary of tbe Treasury to make a redaction of ten per cent in the salaries of all customs officers and employes, and prohibit the em ployment by government officers of sny persons except those for whom specific appropriations are made. All these provisions are stricken oat on the ground that they are new legislation and cannot be properly enacted in an appropriation bill. SILVER COIN?FAVOBABLE BEPOBT ON TUX PRO- j POSED ISSUE OF TWENTY MILLION The Hoase Banking and Currency Committee to-day unanimously agreed lo report and recommend the pas sage of Mr. Randall's bill to authorize the purchase of silver bnlllon to the extent ol $30,000,000 with any money In tho Treasury, and the Issue ot the resulting silver coin, provided that not mors than $1,000,000 of money shall bo used at any one time for tho purchase i of such bullion.

BCRCHAKD, Ow II.LINOIS, IN opposition. ? Wasbisoto!*, Mar 36, 187*. Th* Houso being In Committee of tb<* Whole (Mr. Springer, of Illinois, in the cliairj oa lb* bill to revise ?ltd simplify oxisting lawa imposing duties on Imports and to reduce taxatiou, Mr. Morrison, of Illinois, Chairman of the Committee on Ways and Means, pro ceeded to address tba committee in explanation of tbe bill. mr. Moiuuaox'e srxsca. He laid down the principle in tbe opening of bis speech that protection, other Iban that incidental to revenue. Is spoliation, bemuse it take* tbe earnings ol the labor of one person or class of persons and gives those earnings to utber more lavored persons or classes; that protection which would take equally and bestow equally would be no protection at all, and tba1 Us abolition would be of most easy accomplishment, having no saltish interests lor Its maintenance. Alter reviewing bricUy tbe experience of other nations, ho said that an increase ol taxation even on luxuries only enriched the smuggler. "Crooked whiskey" showed tbst excessive taxation makes Knave* and thieves. Congress should try the removal of restrictions; snould take oQ the shaukles; sho-tld gel revenue irom prop erty that represented tho results of labor, not Iroin the processes or means by which property is acquired, and should recognise tbe oil repeated truth that where protection begins revenue ends. Still, bad as the system of protection was believed to bo, it bad tu be dealt with by no abrupt change or headlong speed, but by sure and inoderute steps, with the care ana caution ol enlightened statesmanship. THK PREMKST TARIFF, he said, served the purpose neither ot protection nor of revenue; it promoter I mod ami offered a premium to unlaitblul officers. Under it revenue was a mere Incidental or seuoudary matter. 1 he lnterosts ol tho toiling and producing millions were Ignored, and the outgrowth ol tho tariir was a selfishness which, in Us race lor subsidies and bountios, had clouded some of tbe best intellects of the country and dwartud tne spirit ol lau-iable enterprise. Reviewing tbe tarilT legislation of tbit country, he referred to the removal, in 1872, of tbe dutv on tea and coffee, and declared that tbe object ol' tho removal was to afford a bolter pretext lor retaining protective duties on ltianu aciures, and thai many lair mlnoed revenue roformers fell Into the trap. He said that n duty of three cents a pound on coffee and or 10 cents on tea would yield each a revenuo oi $10,000,000, and would only amount to a lax ol 21 "j rente on each to each per son A tax ol 43 cents to each person on uoiii these articles would yield a revenue of $20,000,000, and where (be asked) could so much revenue bo obtained irom customs at so little co t? Net from dnty on tnstt ulaclnres, which were protected ai a rate exceeding 40 per cent. In order to obtain $20,000,000 in duties Irom inanulacturcs protection w.m g>ven at the cost ol the consumer to a homo prndnot of live times greator value which yields no revenue. Ue argued thai while tbe Industry, trade and commerce ol tbe country should not be dlsturbod wantonly orupou any trivial pretext, the modification proposed in bis bill could only affect ibeni beneficially, aud was a necessity de manded alike by tbe needs of tbe Treasury aud of the consumer. He characterised as a fallacious and shal low delusion tba idea that protection was necesuary to prevent the " PACPKB WAOXS"' OP KCROPB Irom eomlng Into competition with the well paid labor ol the United States. Tho Congress or the United States might have great creative power, but it could uoi convert an imbecile infant into a stalwart, seit- j sustaining and self-respecting man either by protection or privation. Tbe wages in England were lea limes au hi|ih as In India or Chlua, Ave times higher than in Kussia, and double as much as in Ueruiauy, Franco and the rest of Europe: and yet In every one of these countrps the dearer labor of England competed suc cessfully with their cheaper labor. THB "UOMK MAHKBT" waa another cheat and catchword o( the protectionists; Alter protection unequalled lor ball a generation, tbe "homo market" had not come, but was as far as ever removed Irom tbe Qelos of agriculture. Ue Calmed as tbe cnief merits ol the bill reporiod by him simplitlca tlon of rate* and reduction of rates. The proposed re ductions, he said, were still high, and were ho mlendod lest any radical reduction might seriously affect any of tbo great Industrial Interests of Hie couuiry. The proposed rates would still afford largo incidental protection. No one knew better than the manufacturer that tbo present complicated and oppressive high tariff could not last. A change must come, and come speedily. It bad been tbe pur pose to present In tbo pending measure sncb a change, in a spirit ol fairness to alL As to tbe objection tbat this was not a propitious tlmo for a tariff ro.orm, be said tbat If tbe present tariff won an outrage aud an enormity there was no bolter time than the present lor a reform. The present law waa eiihor wise. Just and equitable, and therefore needed no. change, or It was complicated, wrong and oppressive, aud ibereiore could n?t be changed too Soon. Tbe ponding bill was by no means such a complete adjust ment of tbe tariff as was demanded, but H wan a step In the right direction, a promise of belter things to come, a meaiy* to a great end wh:ch would surely be reached, and to wnicb, If tbo country was not led by reason and Justice, It would be forced by necessity. gPKKCB OF MR. HURCIIARO. Mr. Burchaku, (rep.) ot III., also a member of the Committee of Ways and Meats, made a speech in oppo sition to tbe bill reported by Mr. Morrison. Ho ud mlltei tbat a measure attempting to adjust tariff duties more equitably, deserved the early consideration ol tbe House, snd he regretted tbat the bill before the House was so detective and Incomplete, it was imperfect In Ite details and In the adjustment of tariff rales, and would, as a revenue measure, ho disastrous to the public credit So far as it sought to relieve taxation, reduce excessive duties and simplify the mode ol ascer taining them, it had his svnipaihv. His opinion was that an average duty of at least 30 per cent would bo needed during this generation. Contrasting the num ber engaged in agricu tural and non-protected indus tries with those employed in iron, cotton and froolen productions, bo claimed that the atter represented but three per ccut of the laborers of tbe country, and tbelr intcre-ts wero not paramount to those ol tho other laborers. lie quoted John Qulncy Adams for tbe saying thnt "a tariff duly was & bounty to tbe manufacturers," and he arguod that this truth was indicated by the accumulated wealth and largo bank deposits of the manuiacturing Slates. He insisted, however, tbat the roouctious proposed in this bill must be compen sated hy revenue duties from other sources, or else the hilf ought cot to pasa. There was already a largo tailing oft' In tbe revenue from customs, and this Jomod to the proposed reductions would make tbo loss of revenne at least $20,000,000. Tins would seriously im pair the crodil or the government snd threaten the sinking fund. For these and other reasons he opposed tbe bill. Wiiboot further progress on the Tariff bill the com mitlo rose. THE HEBREW CONVENTION. The Convention of Uy delegates from various Hebrew congregations held a second session last evening, Mr. Lewis May in the chair, for the purpose of receiving the reports of the tbo committees on resolutions and con stitution and bylaws appointed at tbo previous meet ing. < The Chairman remarked that the impression bad gene abroad that the sessions were strictly private, and benco it was that ao few of their coreligionists were present. The .Secretary read a communication from the Annual Convention of Board of Delegates of Ameri can Israelites held In Philadelphia, asktcg for co-opcra- i lion in tbe.lr work. On motion of Merits Ellinger it was dccided that ibe communica tion be referred to the executive body, which would be organized upon the dissolution of the Convention. Mr. Ellinger staled that the two commit tees had thought It much bolter to unite together, as, If tbey held their deliberations separately, it was possible that their conclusions might clash, or they might no over tho ramc ground, which would be a useless wane < 01 nim-. Ho then presented a Joint report insisting on the necessity and practicability at tho present time of establishing a seminary for tho teaching of Jewish theology. In the present state of education there was no pressing demand for the more advanced depart ments o( Hebrew lore. Still the institution should at Its first inundation afford the opportunity for the Intro- i duciion of thnoo higher branches when occasion would offer. The coinm nee* were in doubt whether to recom mend tbo establishment of chairs of Hebrew science in existing universities or to found a separate Institution, mid therefore subtest ibt.t that question be rHotrerl 10 ib? managers nl the institution whon organized. Mr. Kllinger then offered a preamble setting iortb tho gteat importance o! tbo question under consideration and the necessity of a school where tbo sacred law, tradition nnd literature, and the entire raoge of scien title acquirements might be included in the curricu- j lum, a-d then offered the following resolutions:? , itei.'lved, That we deem It the sacrod duty or every eon- i rreRStlon. ss well as of every sinceie Israelite. tomuiribate ! toward the support a lid maintenance of sn institution for j tlie tuition nml propagation of Jewish ?eloper mi , lifer,, lure ms tlie nursery ot Jewish religion and philosophy j on this continent. i Kesulved.
