THK senate spent nearly seven

first of them was started by Mr.

information from the finance commit

senate w really tha one on which ac

not able to elicit any more definite in
formation than that the fin nice com

ported The tariff bill wss taken np
and Mr Qu.ytRep. Ptt.) moved to lay
it aside and to take up a bill for a

Pittsburg The motion ws rejected.
Accordingly the whole Thir l ftogi

o'clock in the morning, and four com

charge of the ixpedltion, and c tups

from Colonel Maion to act with cool

left the fort without demonstration via

Tbe only notice wbleh Mr. Aldrich
