Cox was elected Speaker pro tern during the absence of Mr. Kerr. House went into Committee ot the Whole on the postoffice appropriation bill, the question being in regard to abolishing the letter carrier system in cities of less than 40.000 population. The proposed abolition was defeated. After the reading of s few further lines in the bill, Mr. Foster of Ohio, moved to insert an item of $.350,000 additional, for the letter car rier system in cities of less than 40,000 inhabi tants. Mr. Holman of Ind., made a point of order that the time at which such an amendment could be offered was past. The chairman (Springer) sustained the point of order and against that ruling Mr. Foster took an appeal. Tlie committee then rose and the appeal was reported to the House, which laid it on the table, 86 to 64. The House again went into Committee of the Whole and resumed the consideration of the bill. Mr. Foster moved an amendment increasing the item for inland transportation from $14, 500,000 to $15,000,000, specifying it as follows: Transportation by railroads, $8,862,149; by •‘star” routes, steamboats and all other than railroad routes, $6,237,851. He proceeded to explain it. He stated that the plan to ho al lowed was five mills per lineal foot of car room when mails are carried less than 26 miles an hour, and six mills over that rate of speed. Mr. Harrison moved to increase the item by $330,000. After a long discussion all the amendments but that offered by Mr. Holman were icjecte l, and Holman’s was adopted. Without disposing of the bill the committee rose, when Mr. Vance of Ohio, chairman of the Committee on Printing, made a partial re port on the subject of the government printing office. The report states that the Congression al printer has charged for the work of the ex ecutive departments an excess ranging from 30 to 125 per cent, beyond the regular rates; that ; he has been paying more than the ordinary re- j tail market prices for many articles purchased | for the office; that he has invariably purchased t supplies from middlemen, allowing them a ' heavy profit; that priceB paid for labor are greatly in excess of those of other establish ments, while the day’s work is 8 hours against 10 hours in private establishments, and that as at present managed the printing aud binding for Congress and the departments costs more money than it can be done for by responsible private parties. The waste gold leaf for the last seven years, which has been appropriated by the superintendent of the binding depart, ment, is estimated at $4,000,000, The report declares that a system ot unparalleled extrava gance pervades every department of the gov ernment printing office, in regard to the printing of the Congressional Eecord, tbecom mittee is of the opinion that it would be in the interest of economy to remove its publication from the government printing office and give a contract to Mr. Franklin Kives. The report describes the book-keeping to have been of so loose a character as to be entirely unreliable, and says the Congressional printer demonstrat ed fully to the mind of the committee hi9 utter disqualification for the proper discharge of his duties, and that bis subordinates are very little better in that respect than their chief. The internal management of the office is represented as worse, sf possible, than the book-keeping, aud being of such a character as would ruin the most substantial private estab lishment in the country. This managem£nt comprised the lending of machinery and ma terial to private parties, the employment of men on account of political influence who were totally unfit to earn their wages, the payment ui employes wuue auseut at, elections, me Bell ing of records and documents on credit in vio lation of law, the execution of work for private parties, the forcing of balances and the falsifi cation of accounts. In conclusion, the committee expresses the opinion that the work at the government print ing office costs 8500,000 a year more than it would cost if done by responsible private par ties under a proper contract system, and that it is wise to take immediate steps for discontin uance of the office. The committee also recommended that the proposition of Franklin Rives, of the 2d of May, 187(1, for the printing and binding of the debates of Congress be accepted, and a contract entered into to take effect at the beginning of next session, and that the printing and binding for the departments shall be under the control of the heads of those departments, and shall be executed under contract. Report closes with resolutions instructing the Speaker to cer tify the testimony to the district authorities, to the end that the Congressional printer may be indicted and prosecuted, instructing the Ju diciary Committee to inquire whether he is an officer who may be impeached, and instructing the Committee on Appropriations to report in the sundry divil appropriation bill sections for the abolition of the government printing office, and providing for the printing and binding for all departments of the government. The report was ordered to be printed and re committed. Speaker’s leave of absence was extended for ten days. Adjourned till tomorrow.

TtIRKEV. 1 lie Proposed Conference of Powers Beklin, May 12.—The rumors of a general European conference on the situation in Tur key are premature, but it is thought probable that the question of holding one will be consid ered, should Turkey herself propose such a course to the guaranteeing powers. The Porte Expresses Regrets. The Turkish Ambassador has been instructed to express to the representatives of tho great powers, the Porte’s deep regret at the Salonica outrage and to give assurances that the guilty persons will he punished.

The Chancellors’ Conference. Berlin, May 12.—Advices from Constanti nople renoit lliat great excitement prevails there. The ministerial changes, which are un I avorohlfi to the old Tuikish party, make a good impression here, but the retentiou of the minister of war occasions comment. It is understood that yesterday’s conference at Prince Bismarck’s residence resulted in a complete agreement touching the points to be discussed, aud no doubt is entertained but that the other powers will accept the principles laid down. It is expected as a result of the confer ence that a note supplementary to Count An drassy’s will be promulgated, defining the guar antees received of Turkey for the execution of reforms and reserving the right of controlling such execution. Whatever steps be taken, it is believed the throe empires will ask the support of the other treaty powers therein. Russia considers it imperative in view of the agitated state of Turkey, to demand tho adoption of a decisive and energetic course in order to obtain the required guarantees. The Salonic outrage and the reports of the excited state of leeliug in Constantinople will be considered, and prob ably guarantees will also be demanded for the security of the Porte’s Christian subjects and foreigners in the dominions against similar outbreaks of Mahometan fanaticism.

FROM THE ISTHMUS. Hard Fighting Between Onatemala and Han Salvador—The Fortner’s TroopsVic torions. New Yobk, May 12.—The Panama Star o May 1st says lighting has been going on be tween the troops of Guatemala and Salvador and the losses on both sides has been heavy. The army of Guatemala under Gen. Barrios has been successful in every quarter, having driven the Salvadorians from every field. The ship-of-war General Barrios landed a large force in the rear of City of La Union, which attacked the place, completely routing the Sal vadorians and planting the flag of Gen. Bar rios upon the custom house and public build ings. The victorious army pushed to the inte rior, driving the enemy, capturing many pris oners and causing the utmost demoralization within the ranks of the Salvadorians. At dawn on the 19th tli3 city of San Miguel was captur ed, whereupon the President of Salvador sent a flag of truce and asked to be allowed to make peace offerings. It is understood that Barrios will not treat with him upon other terms than unconditional surrender, The steamship Hon duras was fired into by the troops of Salvador while passing La Libertad. She hove to and received the commandante on board who ins pected the ship and allowed her to depart. It appears from details that five battles were fought, in all of which the Salvadorian forces were defeated. On the 7th of April 2000 Sal vadorians attacked Col. Morralle’s redoubt at the “Platanar,” but were repulsed after five hours fighting, leaving 57 dead, 35 prisoners and 200 Remington guns. The Guatemalan loss was 2 killed and 25 wounded. On the 13th the Guatemalan position at “Apaneca” was at tacked by Salvadorians, who were repulsed and put to flight, leaving 5 prisoners, 37 dead, many wounded, 112 Remington guns and mules, horses, &c. The Guatemalan loss was 1 officer and 5 men killed. On the 14tb Gen. Cruse, the victor of Apane ca, attacked a Salvadorian division of General Francisco Meuendez, of 1000 men. Cruse after a five hours struggle was victorious, capturing a mitralleuse with all its (ammunition and 30 Remingtons. The Salvadorians left 30 dead and many wounded on the field. On the 13th Gen. Pimental gained a victory over the Salva dorians at or near Ahuachapan, their head quarters. The Guatemalans are almost in complete possession of the departments of Santa Ana and Sansonati in Salvador. Gon zales, the Salvadorian commander-in-chief, is near the city of Santa Ana, and Barrios of Guatemala is on the road between Ahnachapan and Santa Ana. The Guatemalan steam trans port General Barrios, landed a large force of Guatemalans rear La Union, which captured that place and marched on to San Miguel un der Gen. Salaris. At Pasaguina on the road to San Miguel, Gen. Briasco with 1600 men await ed them. Gen. Solaris with 1800 men attacked him on the forenoon of April 17th. The battle lasted the 17tb, 18th and 19th. Both parties received reinforcements during the three days. On the afternoou of the 19th Briasco’s commu nication with San Miguel was cut off and his reinforcements were intercepted and whipped. On the 20th at 2 a. m. he escaped through the Guatemalan lines with 200 men. One cannon, one mittrelleuse, some 1500 Remingtons, 00 cases of cartridges and several boxes of specie fell into the hands of the victors. Loss of men on both sides was very great. ben. fndalecio Miranda lias assumed tlie provisional presidency of Salvador by a decree of the 23d of April issued in Sau Miguel. The inhabitants in a public assembly accepted bis presidency, ignoring the authority of Valle and Uodzales. Foreign Notes. M. Ilicard, French Minister of Interior, is dead.

CORING—Dear Sir, Having been at times seriously afflicted with that most tormenting of diseases, DYSPEPSIA, and haviug tried and lost faith in the thousand and one remedies prescribed for that disease, I almost despaired of ever being cured cr even helped by any medicinal preparation. While in Loudon, Eng., in 1873, and suffering intensely, I was induced to try Eoriug’s specific, by a lady friend, who brought it with her from the United States. Un like every other remedial agent its effect upon me was gratifying beyond expression—very soon I be gan to feel like a new person—my strength and vigor returned and every symptom ot the disease disappeared. I have given several bottles to my afflicted friends, and in every case beneficial results have followed its use. 1 have an abiding faith in your Mpeciflc, and believe that it will cure ninety-nine cases out ot every hundred, and give relief to the other.
