fa"ln both houses of Congress on Mon
day, (Says the - American) the business of
most interest under'consideration refitted
to the currency, question- in the Senate,
Mr. Sherinan,. from the Finance Commit
tee, reported the compromise bill, :tweed
epon tor that committee, to provide for
the redemption and reissue of United
States notes and for free banking, , It
fixes the limit of the legal tender issue at
082,000 ; 000. and also provides rot free
banking, but obviates expansion by re
quiring that tender notes shall be retired
as fast as bank notes are issued. The
working of the bill, as we understand it,
will be to increase the banking capital of
the country by $100,00,0,000 (this capital
to be distributed to the States net now
having their proper portion), and to re
duce the legal tender issue to three hun
dred millions, so that when its provisions
aro fizlly carried out the amount of no-
Aortal currency will stand at $500,000,000
and legal tenders at $300,000,000, making
the entire paper currency of the country
$800,000,000. Nothing in the act is to
be construed as authorizing any increase
of the public debt of the United States.
Mr. Sherman, in introducing the bill, said
that it had been agreed upon as a com
promise between the members of the com
mittee, that some of its features were not
approved of by several members, and that
- he had given his own consent to it with
great reluctance. To-day he will make
an explanation of its provisions and their
effect if adopted. After the introduction
of the bill the debate on the currency
question was. resumed, M. Morton argu
ing in favor of expansion, and a general
debate followed on the power of the Sec
retary of the Treasury to reissue the forty
million reserve, Mr. Conkling affirming
this power and Mr. Sherman denying it.

being a common swindler. He was lock

throwing away a number of papers. He
was seized and searched, and several rail
road passes over Western roads, letters,

A Baltimore correspondent, writing us
under date of the 20th inst., says that at
the hearing before Judge Brown on that

reserved his decision until the 21st. Two
dispatches were read in Court, asking the
retention of the prisoner—ime from the

He remarked to the operator that he was

we will give a brief sketch of his career

ATTACK OF CitusAmtfes.—At Jefferson
ville, Ind., after Mrs. Hunt had finished
her street lecture on temperance the cru
saders started on their daily saloon visits.
They held service in front of several, and
arrived at John Little's on Spring street.
Here they met Mrs. Little at the door,
who attacked Mrs. Jackson, one of the
leading crusaders, throwing her down.—
The police interfered and quieted the dis
turbance. Mrs. Little told the crusaders
it would be better for them to beat home,
where they belonged, and look after their
own families, instead of trying to make
trouble at other people's houses. The ser
vices were continued at the saloon for two
hours, and the crowd did not disperse un
til several buckets of water were thrown
upon them from the second story windows.
