The Ways and Means Committee have

nut later than the ith of July. The Senate
thinks it undignified to agree to the_ day
fixed by the lower House, and, as usual,

the time. -
With the exception of the 11Insge" of bills
of a private nature, which cannot poSiiblY
be considered during the present session;
the important public legislation demanded
can all be disposed of, before July Ist, if
both bodies will work industriously. A
larger number of bills, and reports themon
by committees, are shown by the records
to have been introduced and reported !upon
during the present „session than in 'fury
previous session Of Congress. Consequently
the journal and documents will be proport
tionately,, more voluminous.. , The House
journal for the present session will probnbly
exceed two thousand pages, and the re•
ports of committees, each, one being a disl

or more. While Congress is charged with

in Louisiana in place of Kellogg. The re

not seem. possible that I, could look upon
1 any other human being, condemned to
meet an ignominious death so soon, without
a thrill of sympathy, but that I felt . only
horror and aversion' on• seeing' Garfield's
assassin. The, General replied that he did
not believe that any one of . the many thou

thing but hotrorlor his crime. He further
remarked' that all the newspapers talk

about letters , of sympathy, bouquets 'and

Whence thee'caine the flowers 'I - just . saw

that Mr. Grover will be rtired at the
