On motion of Mr. Morrill, the • Senate took
up the bill to transfer the unexpended bal
ances of the Navy Department to the
Bureaus of Construction and Eagineering,
whose appropriations have been exhausted.
Mr. Sherman advocated the bill in a few
brief and practical remarks.'
Mr. Morrill explained the bill at length,
and stated the reasons why the appropria
tions for the bureaus referred to had been e.-
Mr. Chandler opposed the bill, contending
that it was a dangerous precedent to transfer
the funds in the manner proposed.
Mr. Morrill said that the committee had
shown clearly that there was a deficiency of
four millions in the appropriation •of these
two bureaus.
Mr. Cragin said the fact was that one half of
the expendltaites of the navy yards occurs in
the' Bureaus of Construction and RepairS.
Last summer it - was found that numerous war
vessels required extensive repairs, aud
it was necessary to expend the money
to keep the navy afloat. These vessels coming
home from distant stations have not received
the necessary repairs since the close of the
war. He supported the bill and contended
that it should_ be passed at once,'', if our' war
ships are to be kept in Condition for service.
Mr. Trumbull opposed the bill as dangerous
and nnnecessary, and wanted to know how it
was that now the war is over and peace
prevails several. thousand workmen arse

Mr. Willard, of the Committee on Foreign

constituencies. Ire was in favor ot.the thorough
protection of American citizens, 'but , when
such a citizen wakes his appeal rho Must
'be • able to show himself innocent

ernments. We must do unto other govern
ments as we would have them do unto us..
The voice of the gentleman from Maryland
(Mr. Swann) in favor
. of the resolution sug
gested the contrast of 15 years ago, when he
rallied to the cry of "Americans for America."
Mr. Swann corrected Mr. Willard and de
nied the statement.

Mr. Wilkinson differed entirely_ from Mr.
Willard, and endorsed the resolution in letter
and spirit. It was a question of humanity.' He
did' not inquire whether the offences of the
Fenians were committed in this country or in
England. We are bound to inquire into their
treatment, for the interest of humanity and
decency, if they are citizens of the - United
Mr. Willard said he was not surprised at the
expression of sympathy for the Fenian insttr
gents by men who had or expected to have
their Votes.
Mr. Cox said Mr. Willard was the first man
to give a partisan character to the debate of a
resolution 80 entirely devoid of political cha
rade; and the Committee had hoped that the
action of the Howe would be unanimously in
favor 'of the inquiry proposed.
• Mr. Wood proceeded to urge the adoption
of the resolution, when the morning hour ex
Mr. Butler, from the Committee on Recon
struction, reported an act for the admission of
3fifsissippi to representation in Congress.
It provides that officers shall, within thirty
days after the passage of, the act, take
the oath similar to that preScribed in the case
of Virginia, and also that the constitution
shall never be altered or amended to exclude
any citizen from suffrage,-school privilege or
right to hold office on account of race or color.
Mr. Butler explained that the bill was sub
stantially the same as that admitting Virginia.
Mr. Reck offered a substitute omitting the.
conditions imposed and merely reciting that
Mississippi has adopted a constitution • repub
lican .in form Sand is therefore entitled to
repretientation. Rot agreed to—yeas 85,

Messrs. , Fitch, Logan, Garfield, Farn.v,

The 'question then recurred on the original
bill, which was passed by a,Vote of yeas

The Steamer Brunette Ran Down by the
steamier Santiago 'De Cuba—Two Lives
Lost. . .
On Tuesday afternoon at 6 o'clock the
steamer Brunette, Capt. Doane*, left the Loril
lard Steamship Dock, bound to Philadelphia.
She was laden with an assorted cargo, and
about three-quarters full. including officers
there were thirteen souls on board. Nothing
of interest occurred until about 20 minutes
past 10, when a steamer was noticed bearing
down for the Brunette. . She proved to be
the Santiago de Cuba, Capt. Jones, bound
from Bavre, France,_ to this port, going
at the rate of about six knots an
hour, and having on board a cargo not
exceeding 600 tons. The statements respect
ing the immediate cause of the collission,
which took place about 10!i o'clock, are con
flicting, but it seems the Brunette attempted
to cross the bows of the Santiago de Cuba,
and, failing to do slain time, the two vessels
'collided, sand the:former sunk in less thauten
minutes. The 'disaster occurred off Squaw
Beach, but .a little distance off shore. The
Santiago de Cuba. had crossed the Atlantic
Ocean by the southern route and fell in with
the land to the southward, working her way
up along the beach, while the Brunette was
taking the inshore route going down.
every effort was made on board of both ves
sels to avoid the disaster. by .reversing the en=
gines, but the orders were given too late, and
the Santiago de Cuba struck the Brunette a
terrific blow in the port broadside, completely
crushing her in and keeling her over to star
board. Stout as the Santiago de Cuba is;she
trembled from stem to stern with the concus . -
sion, while the Brunette splintered with the
thrust like match sticks.: "Within a minute
four of the Brunette's people clambered over
the bows of the Cuba, and were safe. RI an minute both crews busied them Selves in
lowering each a boat. Seven of the crew of the
'Brunette entered their boat, and with the
boat of the Santiago 'de Cuba' they went in
search of any who might be in the water, as
all hands left in such a hurry that it was not
known at the time who really were missing.
Scarce had the boats been launched when the
Brunette went down. Nearly an hour was
spent in pulling around listening for distress
hailing - 8 but at the end of . that time the boats
were hoisted on board of the 'Santiago de
Cuba, and she headed for New York. Op
mustering the crew of the Brunette, it was
found , that George A. , Caleman'andJameS
McCarthy, one a seaman and the other a fire
man, had perished.
SOQII after the collision occurred the pumpii
of the Santiago de Cuba were sounded, and it
was found that she was leaking. The donkey
was set to work and full , speed given to her.
She arrived yesterday morning, and made fast
fb the dock of the Liverpool and
Western Steam Company, Pier No. 46 North
Myer. Most Of the crew of the Brunette arp
Philadelphians, and they left for that town
last night. The injuries to the Santiago de
Cuba are of a serious character, but, being
below the water line it is impessible
to ascertain `the extent., The . stern is
badly started, and it ,is believed the
planking is likewise. The copper is badly

owned by Jacob Lorillard, Jr., and was em

wheel steamer of 1,627 tons; was built by Jere
Simomon, at Greenpoint, in 1861,and was em

purchased by the opposition line totialifornia,
and when that projegt, was abandoned she was
employed in Euger's European Line, plying
between this port, Southampton,Havre, Bre

The Wyble Children Wound Dead Near
Their Biome—.The Bodies Discovered is
the Shadow of a. Itock.—The Crows
Circling Above the . Dead Children--
. Grief et the Wybles.
It will be remembered that we announced
some time ago the mysterious disappearance
of three children named Wyble from their'
home near Wynockie, N. Y. .
The Paterson Guardian has the following
about the matter:
The three lost children . of • Wyble,the
Wynockle hoop-pole cutter,. have at last been
found by accident. Mr. William Ramsey was
in the neighborhood of Wynockie yesterday
morning with a 'friend, and while walking
along the foot of a mountain some two •miles
distant from. the Wy ble hut, saw alarge num
ber of crows flying around a spot near by, be
tween which and themselves a huge rock rose
up so as to effectually conceal what was be
yond it.. The noise raised by the birds was so
great, and their persistence so unusual, that
Mr. 'Ramsey and his companion hastened for
ward to see what had. , caused the hubbub.
Arrived at the spot, they, raised a shout of
dismay, for there before' them lay the dis
figured bodies of the three children who had
been searched for so long.
The eldest, a boy - ten years, lay "on the
ground a few yards from the rock, his clothes
showing marks of heavy rains anti changing
weather that have prevailed since New Year's
day, and his face and hands badly torn by
the crows. Under a shelf of the rock and
close against its surface were the two ;younger
children. Mr. Ramsey •at once hastened
for assistance, and with the aid of sonic of
the neighbors carried the bodies to the
nearest - house, from which they were to be
coaveved to the hut on the mountain. The
sad tidings were taken by the neighbors to the
Ifliyhles, who received the report, it is said,
with a mixture of grief at the misfortune Made
certain, and of joy at having the suspicion.
cleared from them. This event is naturally
the theme now for conversation throughout.
the neighborhood. The funeral will take place
to-day, and will he attended by a great crowd.
Tbe Coming Fight over the New Jersey
Senatorship-4310e Outlook for the Be.
publicans-.. West Jersey versus East
Jersey—Secretary Robeson Cattell's
Right Bower.
Titifx•roN, Feb. 2.—One cannot be here long
without discovering that the chief concern of
the leading persons in both political parties
is the United States Senator to be elected in
1871. to succeed the Hon. A.G. Cattell, whose
tertn expires on the 4th of March, 1871.
Mr. Cattell desires to he his own
successor. EX-Senator-Frelinglinymen and the
Hon. G. F, Cobb, who now represents Morris
county in the State Senate, are also .Republi
ettn candidates for the same place. In view of
the result of the elections in this. State during
the last ten years, it is by no means sure that
the Republicanparty will-have the power to
elect anyone; if they shall, the chances will be
'largely with Senator Cattell.
The main :strength numerically of the Re
publican party in this State is in " West Jer
sey,", and there Senator Cattell has and will
have almost a monopoly of the Republican
members. By the influence of Senator Cattell
and his friends, the Hon. George W. Robeson
was made Secretary of • the Navy. Secretary
Pohe.son is the devoted champion of Senator
Caton. It is obvious, therefjre, that all the
patronage and influence of the Federal Ad-'
ministration will be exerted to aid CattelPs re
election. With the We.st Jersey members and
'the Federal Administration against them,
neither,,Frelinghuysen nor Cobb can make
any considerable show.
on the:Democratic side the candidates - are
more numerous. I find the following names
used: Ex-Governor Joel Parker, Governor
Randolph, the Hon. N. Perry, General a
_Runyon, and Jacob Valletta, Esq. As
boll the present United States Senators are
from West .Jersey; as ex-Governor Parker re
sides in West Jersey; as the bulk of the
population, wealth, business and Demo
cratic strength of the State are in East
Jersey, and as. the East. Jersey Democrats
claim, on all the grounds above mentioned,
that the next Senator shall be chosen from
their part of the State,"it:is highly probahle
that these considerations will practically ex.,-
elude ex-Governor Parker from the contest.
The other four reside in East Jersey, Runyon
and - Perry in NeWark, and Gov.' Randolph
and Vanatta in Morristown. All except
Vanatta were originally Whigs.
Gen. Runyon went over to the Democrats in
18:56. Mr. Perry went over about the same
.time, and Gov. Randolph went over about
1;461. Gen. Runyon, since he joined the Demo
crats, has been Mayor orNewark, and in 1865
was the Democratic nominee for the Gover
norship. He was defeated by Gov. Ward,
Mr. Perry was twice elected to Congress from
the Fifth District by the Democrats.
Gov. Randolph, after he joined the Demo
cratic party, represented Hudson county in the
State Senate four years, and in November,
1868 . , he was elected Governor. His term will
explre in January, 1872.
Vanatta, although an active Democrat for
nearly twenty-live years, has never held any
public Office except to represent one of tho
Morris county .districts in the • House of
Assembly in .1862 mad 1863. In 1863, when
the Democratic Legislative caucus met to
nominate a candidate. •for United States
Senator, the, candidates before the• caucus
were the Hon. Wm. Wright, Jacob Vanatta,
Esq., Chancellor Williamson, the Hon. Jas.
W. Wall, and . the Hon. 1. F. Randolph, the
present Governor: After many ballots '
after another of the candidates ran out until
the only ones left were Mr. Wright and Mr.
Vanatta. Mr. . Wright was nominated on the
last ballot... The vote was 23 for. Wright, 19 for
The opinion of the bestjudges now is that
if the next Legislature is Democratic, • the real
contest for Senator will na . ,rrow down to Gov.
Randolph and Vanatta, with . the chances
large/yin favor of the: latter, were it not for
the wealth and official patronage.of the Gov
erner.. • With these advantages on. the Gov . .

dressed in a black suit of fine cloth, coat very
long and clerical-like, and pants, and vest of
corresponding proportions. He wore, dark
gloves, also, and carried a mulatto-colored
stick. The distinguished darks.) , made quite a
sensation. The moment he came into the'
Senate 'Chamber and took his seat on one of
the. luxurious lounges, several Senators hur
ried over to him, shook him warmly by the.
band and welcomed him to his. new field of
labor.' Charles Sumner was among the firsti
to offer, In very hearty style, smiling,
all over and saying a quantity of pretty':
things, which the colored Senator heard,
with genuine pleasure. It was a spectacle
worth looking at to see Sumner and Revels
thus practically illustrating the idea of politi
cal and social equality. Thayer, Chandler,
BOward, Cameron, Warner, Spencer, Drake,'
Lewis, Howe and ether Senators paid thetr i
respects. Cameron 'had quite a talk Witty
Revels. Spencer, of Alabama, sat down with'
Revels, and, while making his congratula
tions, took a • full survey of the • ladies
in the gallery, who were looking down upon'
the scene, some with pleasure, and others with
astonishment and horror. Spencer, you must I
know, is a great favorite with the ladies. An
effort was made to get . fiery little Garrett
Davis to allow himself to be led into
the presence of Revels for introduction,
but the .live Kentuckian could not see it;
neither could the fascinating MeCreery i col
league of Davis, who clings to the old-time
prejudices with true ante belluni tenacity.
Revels, during all this time, conducted him
self in a manner that left no room for adverse
criticism. He was dignilled, polite, courteous
and not near so proud as Sumner himself,
whose humility is generally recognized.

Blacksmith was placed, if not permanently, at

Albert Vanslyke, was so badly scalded that he
died froin. the effects about six hOura there
after. He was about twenty-one years of age,
and resided near Cherry Hill, krie county,
He was a young man of great premise, and
leaves a large circle of friends to mourn his
loss. The Mill was entirely deniolished,
nothing but the bare frame remaining stand+.

Roma, Jan. 16,1870.--T had not tifne,,or space
last week to tell you, of my, liefana frolic. Bo
fana night is the Vigil of Epiphany—'l'yrelfth
lcight—and is what Christmas Eve is with us.
The ilefana:ts somethinelike our ICrisslcinkle
—not the Christ Child--but a jolly old punchl- ,
hello, who comes down chimneys to put, too,
nuts and oranges in the good,child's stocking,
or a wicked fairy who, leaves whips an,dstnnes
for the bad. MY padrona, et' landlady, lias
little nephew. His stocking on Befana Eve
(yen see the word is an evident corrtipt494 of
_Epiphany) was hung by the'kitohen chimuey..
About 9 o'clock I heard a terrible , bOngieg•
and rang to know the cause of the clatter.
" Oh, Signorina, we were only frightening
little Ciriaco. We beat 'on the chimney. to
pretend Befatial6B corning. He crept down
in the bed, shut his eyes and stopped.his ears,"
For if Refana, the wicked fairy, comes and
finds the children awake, there is no knowing
what terrible thing may happen. Poor little
Ciriaco ! My resolution was made the and
there. When I returned from St. Eustache
that midnight I brought him aline brass trum
pet, a gorgeous gilt watch and chain, and
some droll little earthen toys peculiar to the
Roman Befana, birds, beasts, flowers,and cup
ning little bells whose clappers even ace
earthen, so that the child 'might be sure jolly
Punch had driven th 3 hateful oldliefana fairy
The headquarters of Befana is the Alone, or
district of St. Eustache ; the centre of hilarity
is the Piazza fronting the church which giy,es
the name to the district. This :district is the
very centre of the Campus Martins; the ,Oen
oral Post Offico--which is in that beautiful
Palazzo Madame that was built for Catharine
de Medici in 1642—the great Churches S.
Andrea della Valle, S. Agostino andS. , Carlo
or Catinari, and the Valle and: Argentiha
theatres,are in this Rione. Booths areereCiAta
around the Piazza St.Eustache,and also along
some of the streets of the quarter or district.
At night-fall the frolic begins. Men, •women
and boys fill the streets, scream at the top,,of
their langs, blow every species of trumpet or
whistle, shriek,
,and make every unearthly
sound in your ears ; and if you do not take ; at
good-naturedly they pursue you with deafening
yells. With these inharmonious noises are
mingled the cries of the vendors of toys. 1 ,
A man was selling some little dolls, whose
heads, legs and arms wagged in, a very droll
manner. His vociferous cries attracted our
attention. He was quite dratnatic,too, as these
cormoon Romans are apt to be. Wo bought
some of his dolls; then gave him a half paul.•
five cents-to repeat his cry for our amusement.
This he did with a merry vengeaupe
which made the crowd laugh loudly, and sent
us, off to another part of the piazza
with enough wit for our money. ,
"Lords and ladies," he cried vigorously,
"Look ! Here is a popazza puppet which, wags
its head and legs and has never a shirt to. lts
back. These for es,tieri , wish me to tell you
about it! All for one franc!"
Then he reiterated the state of nudity, ia a
variety of jolly, coarse ways, with a wicked
twinkle of his : eye and a voice that ,was.liko
seaman's truinpet. As far as we 'went, T we
could hear hire above the noise of the crowd.
At eleven o'clock in the,evening the Character
of the crowd changed, The. 9,/{9l'n•t'S tS over,
and the, g entry and nobility poured into St.
EttsMehe. - These were, quite as ~noiSyl,aaul
quite as merry as the condition ''people. Many

made. We rang the droll little eartlieru , bells
in each other's ears, tried to break, those: ,or
our neighbors; and to make as much, tioise. as
,possible. All the-evening the crowd,. whether
composed of gentle or siMple, Was very good-,
natured. - The luirthwas - as - catching as au

in the ocean. It made even the most proper

various streets • leading into the Piazza .
Eustaehe like great waves, all sereaining and
shouting; and the first thing we knoW
doing just the same—laughing, 'shrieking,
blowing trumpets, and ringing the little
earthern bells. „ •
The weather is growing finer. St. • 14biani,
to whose ill-humor it appears that we ONVO ads
bad weather, seems to be appeased. A brisk,
invigorating tramontaue is blowing; the
streets look like a floor—they are m:• drY and
white ; and the sky is as clear as only aßoman
sky can be. I have just been looking from my
window. It is only seven o'clock in the morn
ing; the towers of the Trinita del - Monte are
like sharp cut work on a pietra Ora, and the
fond of the eplestial onyx is streaked with rosy
bars. The leaves of the Tindall tree-tops, just
seen above the 'lenses, are as distinct as in' a
Perugino picture. The crows aro Meng
