of tbe internal revenue laws and ad-
dressed the senate. He referred to tbe
fact that there was no quorum of cither
house In tbe city of Washington, and that no
business could lawfully be done in tbe face of
a single objection. There was, therefore, but
one thing left io be done, and that was to ad-
journ at tbe earliest day possible. After fur-
ther discussion tbe adjournment resolutions
were dispensed with and the senate proceed-
ed with tbe consideration of tbe tariff bill.
After discussion the bill went over till to-
morrow....Legislation in tbe bouse was
blocked owing to tbe lack of a quorum.

ed consideration of the tariff bill, there being

by eight senators and the democratic side by
ten. On motion of Mr. Morgan tbe committee
on foreign relations was authorized to sit dur-

Mexico. Tbe special committee on methods
of business in tbe departments was also con-
tinued. Mr. Cockrell, its chairman, stating
that this would Involve no expenses. The
senste then resumed the consideration of the
tariff bill and was addressed by Messrs. Teller
and Morgan. Mr. Allison offered a con-
current resolution for a recess of congress
' from Saturday next to November 19. Mr.
Cockrell opposed a recess and sugeested that
It would be much better to prov.de that there

that the tariff bill should then be pressed to
final action. Mr. Halts suggested to Mr. Alli-
son that he modify the resolution so as to
provide for an adjournment rather than a re-
cesa Mr. Saulsburv favored adjournment
and said congress might as well have ad-
journed six weeks ago, as there was no serious
purpose on the part of republican senators to
pass the tariff bill. Without action on either
the tariff bill or tbe concurrent resolution for
a recess the senate adjourned....The
.speaker laid before tbe house twelve
pension veto messages and they were
referred to tbe committee on invalid pensions.

end Mr. Paddock moved to amend it by mak-
ing tbe reces* begin October 27 and end Nov-
ember 13. Mr. Allison said that he bad con-
sulted senators on both sides of the chamber,
and thought tbe prevailing opiniou
was in favor of .adjournment until
the first Monday in December. He
understood that the seuator from
Georgia (Mr. Brown) would offer a resolu-
tion to that effect, nnd if so (Mr. Ailison)
would support it. Mr Brown thereupon of-
fered a resolution for the* final adjournment
of this session at 1 o'clock tiext Saturday.
He said be did not believe that the passage
of tbe tariff bill would be effected
by a prolongation of tbe session. If
the democrats «ere successful at tbe coming
presidential election something like
the Mills bill would b passed and if the
republicans were successful something like
the senate bill would be enacted. The popu-
lar opinion on the subject would be known
after the election. After further discussion

A Romauce of the War.
News wa9 received in Si. Paul, says
a paper in that city recently, that Gen.
R. B. Ayers, United States Artillery,
of St Augustine, a class-mate in arms
of Gen. Ruger and a brother-in-law of
Ciayson Butcher, of this city, was ly-
ing at the point of death, in Washing-
ton. In reference to this gentleman
Mr. Butcher tells a romatic story.
Butcher, among others from St. Paul,
recently attended a Democratic con-
vention, and at the conclusion of the
business was called upon for a speech.
In the course of his remarks he alluded
lo the feeling between the North and
South. To illustrate his point, Mr.
Butcher told this story: He was a boy
in West Virginia during tbe war, and
in the course of some campaign a de-
tachment of Union troops were sent
to burn his home. His father aud
adult relatives were absent, aud his
mother,- with a little girl baby in her
arms, was forced to flee to the negro
quarters for shelter when the torch
was applied to the house. Not satis-
fied with destroying their home,the sol-
diers also burned the quarters, and his
mother again had to liee for her life.
Seventeen years after the officer in
command of the Union troops who de-
stroyed the home, and who has now
reached the rank of general, married
Mr. Butcher's sister, who was the babe
in her mother's arms at the time of the
raid. This gentleman is Gen. Ayers,

Tbe old tragedy of the bull and loco-

sd on the Grand Southern railway
just as a locomotive drawing a picnic
train appeared in sight. He lowered
liis head, pawed the ties, switched his
tail, bellowed and paid no attention to
Ihe frantic toots from the engine.
When the locomotive drew near the
bull charged furiously. There was a
bellow, a cloud of dust aud steam
rolled away, the locomotive and the
bull lav in the ditch, the horns of the
latter locked in the bars of the cow-
3atcher. The noble animals' neck was
broken. No one on the train was

The blue portion of every gas flame
is where combustion is taking place,
and from there comes the heat whioh
