of the methods of presenting and ex
amining amendments of laws; (4 sub
utiesion to the Corp!' of commerce

bility which exists . between holding at
the same time a seat in the. Corps and an
office in the Ministry, and the extension
of' the right' of interpellation. ; Similar
.questions with rasped' to the Senate are
' ;hereafter lobe considered.
The Emperor believes that.these mea
sures will meet all demands. In conclu
lion he asks the deputies tO consider hoW
gften he lips abandoned certain of his
own prerogatives in public interests. For
-those already granted,which form an in

'Sided to him by the pimple, and which

Obtitive Government. •

Obituary—Banque,: to Minister
Confession of a Murderer.
ST. Louis, July 12.—R. M. Field, who
has for many years stood at the head of
the St. Louis oar, died at six C'clock this
evening, after a lingering illness, aged
sixty-two years. Mr. Field was born in
Newfane, Windham county, Vermont,
and came to St. Louis in 1839.
The preparations for the banquet to
Mr. Blow, our Minister to Brazil, to
morrow night, are - completed. It is ex- 1
pected to be quite a grand affair and will
be immerously attended. 'A large num,
ber of gentlemen both'in and out of the
State have been invited. The Brazilian
Minister arrivediiere from Washington
and will be' resent.
The,conresaion of John W. Moore. the
murderer" of Mrs McAdams, near Green
ville, Illinois, says he enticed the lady
into the home from the porch, where she
was washing, and attempted to violate
her, but she struggled tto hard he re
leased her. He then endeavored to per
suade and bribe her not to reveal his act,
but she refused, and he went home with
the intention of leaving the country. He
could not abandon his wife and child,
however, and returned to Dirsehladsnis'
house, for the purpose of again pleading
with her not to disclose his conduct.
When he approached she ran away. lie
followed and'caught her and on her still
retasdng to screen him he Struck, then
stabbed and llnally cut her throat. He
has issued an appeal to all - ministers to
visit and pray for him, urges afl , chris•
tiana to come and', talk W,i th him,
and prays that no violence will
be done him, but that he may
be allowed time •to prepare for
death. Mrs. McAdams' inneral took
place Wednesday, and was attended by
the people of 'the entire surrounding
country. There has been intense excite
ment, but since the confession it has
abated, and there seems now to be a de.
termination to allow the law to take, its
course. Moore was born in New York
in 1845. His father died when he was
quite young, and his mother came to St.
Louis to live, where she resided sev
eral years. Subsequently they went to
Bou.l county. Illinoii, - to live. Moore
has borne an excellent reputation up to
the present , time. •

The Internal Revenue Department has
received information of the conviction at
Williamspoft, Pa., of Martin Billmire
and Zultman. 'on charge of violating
the revenue laws in relation to distilling.
They are two of the most wealthy men
in that part of the State and the largest
distillers. Both were sentenced to two
'years in the penitentiary and are now in
confinement. The Supervisor of the
Western' District says' these convicts
hoped to escape owing to their riches and
influense, and their conviction will nave
a good effect on smaller distillers who
violate the law. t
This afternbon about fifty citizens 'of
New Jersey called at the Navy Depart
ment to,pay their respects to Secretary
Robeson. Mutually-congratulatory and
complimentary speeches were made by
the Secretary and a number of the dele
gation. In the course of his remarks
Mr. Robeson said: "Of the administra
tion of President Grant perhaps it does
not become me to spealt, but I will only
say of it, as the policy by which the re
bellion was finally subdued was the pol
icy of action rather than of profession. so
the policy of the present admin
istration under his leadership may
be judged by ' its fruits. With
no startling announcement, no profes
sion of splendid policy, the administra
tion of General Grant endeavors quietly,
persistently and honestly to /perform
each day the duties which it each day
finds before it, and trusts itstsif, without
reserve, to the intelligence of the people.
And acting in harmony with • other,
branches of the Government, the Esecu=
tive Department hopes to be able in,the
fullness of time to present the country
