Mr. WILSON, from the Military Com

Freedmen's Bureau.
Mr. HARLAN called up the bill to ex

Mr. HOWARD called up the bill requir,
ing reports of railroad companies to be
filed in the office of the Secretary of the In
terior instead Cof the Secretary of the Treas

Mr. TRUMBULL called up the bill in re
gard to the qualification of jurors. It,
provides thatexpression of opinion, founded
on.public' rumor or stateMents In public
journals, shall not disqualify a juror other
wise competent, and who shall take the
oath that lie can give a verdict according to
the evidence.
-Mr. JOHNSON supposed the law already
allows a Court in its discretion to accept
such jurors.
Mr. TRUMBULL replied such was the
practice in many States, but the bill.:pro
posed to make the practice uniform. •,- --
Mr. BA.YARD thought this a dangerous
provision. Am= could not be otherwise
than partial after forrning and expressing
an opinion.
Mr- DAVIS was not sure the measure
was'not an innovation :on the sacred right
of an impartial trial by jury,:and concur
ed in the opinion of +he last speaker. He
would sooner yield the whole Government
than this inestimable right. [During Mr.
Davis' remarks, Messrs. Trumbull and
Johnson engaged in a smilirug conver
sation in front of Mr. Davis.) Senators
may laugh and snicker, but their scoffs and
jibes will not drive me from opposing this

position in society is. That is not the.way,
to meet opposition to any important meas.

Mr. FRELINGIIITYSEN held that' , in
these, days of general ,newspaper reading

not militate against the impartiality of a

PITTSBURGH. THURSD Y. APRI
NEW YORK
[By Telegraph to the Pittsburgh Gazette.)
NEW YORK, April 8, 18138.
-ERIE RAILROAD SUITS. •
The various suits in the Eric litigation
came up before the Supreme Court, Gener
al Term, to-day, on appeals from the order
suspending Mr.] Drew from several in
junctions, and from the order appointing a
Receiver.
Mr. Barnett opened the case for Mr. Drew
in an argument against the legality of the
appointment of ' Mr. Osgood as Receiver,
contending the convertible bonds were au
thorized by the General Railroad act of
1850, and that the action of the Erie direc
tors was sanctioned by that of other com
panies, includino. the New York Central
and Hudson. As to the proceeds of the
stock, the appointment of Receiver was er-•
roneous, because the stock wasin the hands
of innocent third parties, while even were
it illegally issued, and the proceeds in the
hands of the Company, no. cause would
exist for the appointment ofa ReceNer. On
these grounds the defendants demand a re
versal of the order, with costs. ,
Mr. Rapello and Mr. O'Connor replied'
for the Vanderbilt party, contending , ..the
stock was fraudillently issued, that a large
sum was improperly obtained therefrom,
and the / order for a Receiver should be
made permanent.
Mr: Field continues the argument to
morrow for the appellants.
• In the case of Scheel vs. Erie Company,
before Judge Barnard, the answer of Jay
Gould to the attachment for violation of the
injunction was filed. He denies knowledge
of the issue, of 50,000 shares of stock, but
I:4l.leVescertificates of, stock 'in -blank
were made by the officers of the Com
pany before the injunction, and that
• the Executive Committee issued converti
ble bonds to the extent of ten millions, half
of which Passed into the hands of Groes
beck ck: Co., and half to Daniel Drew. Some
evidence on the subject was submitted, but
no conclusion reached.
John B. Haskins, Referee, was examined
this afternoon in the attachment proceed
bligs against Jay Gould, the Erie Railroad
Director. He testified that David Dudley
Field offered him $5,000 to procure a modi
fication of the original injunction from
Judge Barnard. On cross-examination the
witness stated he, Judge Barnard, J. H.
Copeman, Recorder 'Hackett and George A.
Osgood were in the habit of meeting in.
- Hackett's office. Witness was farther cross
examined for the purpose of showing ho
'had used his personal influence with Judge
Barnard. to Influence the, judicial action of
the latter.
The argument in the habeas corpus case
..of Jay Gould takes place to-morrow.

[By Telegraph to the Pittsburgh Gazette.]
The Secretary of the Interior sent to the
House to-day a communication from the.
Commissioner of Indian Affairs, Who says:
"Referring to office reportstof the 20th and
21st of February last, in which reference
was madnto the necessity of certain appro
priations being made at an early day, in
order that the faith of the Government and
promises of the Indian Peace Commission
ers may be kept good, I desire to say it is
evident to my mind that unless immediate
action is had by Congress upon the
estimates referred to in said re
ports, and necessary fonts appropriated to
enable the department to carry out and ful
fill-the proniises made with certain tribes,
we shall have trouble with them. I am led
to be believe this from various rumors that
have reached thiS office of the feelings and
intentions of certain bands and tribes on
the plains. If we expect to keep the
Indians. friendly .to the Govern
ment, and at peace with it, ,we
must fulfill our promises. Otherwise
we can but ekpeet, as Would, be the case
were we dealing with white men and Chris
tians, a renewal of the troubles of last stun
mer. Besides, if our agreements are not
faithfully carried out, the Indians will soon
loose all confidence in the government; they
will believe nothing told them by its offi.- -
cers. and an almost endle4s war will he the .
result, which will cost millions of dollars
to suppress, and to avoid which thousands
are only asked. This question has become
of so grave importance that I deemi it
my duty to again invite your attention to it.
If We are to have another Indian war this
summer, I do not wish the cpuntry tothink
it was caused or brotight about 'by the man
agement of the affairs of this office, and af
ter the urgent requests that have been made
for fuilds, and the statements that have
been made in regard to the matter, this
Bureau certainly cannot be held responsi
'ble fcir any acts of hostility or depredations
that thay be Committed by the Indians."

Tailed all day.
OrrasvA April B.—The adjourned inquest
was 'resumed in the afternoon and a large
number of witnesses Were examined. The
evidence taken was .mainly in connection
with the finding of the body: The case
against Whelan 'deepens.hburly. The
government detectives are in possession
of a strong chain of evidence against him,
and the Crown= reckon confidently on his
being the man. A loaded revolver was
found on his person when arrested, and a
cartridge in one of the' chambers was evi
dently-now. This chamber had no trace 'of
having been recently discharged. The
other chambers were bright and clear.
Tho bullets with which it was loaded
are • exactly like that which killed
McKee.- It is generally believed a gang
ruffians'are •mixed up in the assassination.
Two or three parties, against whom ,there
is circumstantial evidence, have been ar
rested as accomplices of Whelan. In order
to expedite the trial the Crown •will proba
bly take_ the case out of the Coroner's
bands to-morrow, and it will be brought
before the Police Colirt.
