The river and harbor bill was yes
terJny reported to tlio House. The
day before the legislative executive
aod judicial bill was reported. This
leaves only the sundry civil and de-
ficiency appropriation bills for report.
The river and harbor bill appropri-
ates tbout six million and probably
the additions to be made in House and
Senate will increase the amount to
seven millions. There will be spirit-
ed opposition to the hill but as in
years past .it will certainly be ineffectual-It
having been decided in Democrat-
ic caucus to attach to the sundry civil
bill a clause repealing Federal jury
discriminations in the South arising
out of tbe civil wsr there will prob-
ably be a contest over that bill but
Mr. Hale speaking for the liepubli-
cans yesterday intimated in the House
that his party would not oppoee re-
peal if the Democrats would not in-
sist on repeal of the election Fupervi-
sor law. Clearly this is a eoti.promise
which Democrat hould Bit accept
Tbe whole machinery by which the
Federal Government interferes wiih
elections in States thould be swept
out of existence.
On Saiwriay the to 'tubers cf the
Potter Con-anitue who hU Beet) in
New Ytirk eofarcJ is ionaTies into J
the cipher telegrirue returned to this
city. Since then there bate been no
public meetings of the Committee. It
is universally said that the more the
testimony ot Mr. Tilden and the oth-
er New York wilnossea ii examined
the clearer it become that that gen-
tleman had no knowledge of tho in
ception of anything improper in the
oaae and ai soon aa he learned of
anything improper pat a atop to it.
The Senate Committee on Appro-
priations has agreed to recommend
that postal pay to tho amount of tlGO-
000 per annum be given to eaeh of two
lines of steamships to South Amen
can ports one line leaving New York
and touohing at Norfolk and the oth-
er leaving New Orleans and touch ipg
at Galveston. The amount is much
smaller than was first proposed and
the money if it shall do a tithe ot the
good to our oommeroe that is claimed
will be well spent
It is to be presumed that all the
States which- now deny women the
right to apper as attorney! before the
Courts will give renewed consideration
to the matter sinoe the United States
permits such appearance before the
Supreme Court. The Senate last
week by a vote of more than two to
one passed the House bill giving this
permission. There aro only five or
six States whioh are as liberal in this
respect as the General Government
now is. Mrs. Lockwood of this oity
our first woman attorney who hat for
years worked hard for the success ot
the bill just passed is receiving con-
gratulations daily from all parts of the
oountry upon her success. Rex.

It does not require a formal asking
of the momentous question to consti-
tute an offer of marriage. Probably
tho ninjorUy of swains do not say iu so
many words "Will you be my wife?"
The compact between lovers is often
more in the language of tho eyes and
of tbe actions than in that of articu
late speech. The moment is fitting
the surroundings are auspicious and
the hearts of the pair beat in union as
their glances meet when all at once
they stand revealed to one another as
lovers and betrothed. They havo uo
need to ask questions at that time of
supreme elevation for they know all
they wish to know without such in
quiries aad spoken words for words
whioh had been premeditated would
seem out of timo harsh coarse grat
ing and utterly inadequnte to cxpresB
the delicious tumult of their souls.
The man may have t-pent ninny days
beforehand in constructing and polish
ing up a handsome declaration yet
when the hour comes it strikes him
unexpectedly and he either stammers
out words whioh would bo unintelli
gible to any other hearer than bis fair
companion or he only looks what he
has to say and sets his answer in an
averted and blushing face a timid
glance or a soft pressure ot tho hand.
After it is all doue he cares not a whit
about the ways through which the
happy end was reached; he has won
that ia enough.
Wouldn't Fish t That Way.
About tho commencement of tbe
war Judge Rice mado a speech in
Alabama in which he said the South
ern soldiers could whip the Yankees
with popguns. Sioce tbe war he
chanced to make another spoet-h at
the samo place.
A bir double-jointed fellow was
present who heard and remembered
the former speech and beiog io n
amiable frame of mind concluded to
go for Son.
RolliriK up his sleeves and popP'n
his fLt int3 the palm of his haoJ he
propounded the fesrl allocation :
"Sfty Sam Riee didn't you nuke a
speech here in 1SC1 ?"'
'Idil" said Sa.
'Aod didn't yoa My we eonld whip
the Yankee with pop-grins?'
Teminly I did bat the rascals

Senator Storey it one of the ablest
as well as most judicious members of
the Legislature. n served with
marked distinction as chairman of the'
committee on finance in the XV Legis
lature ana we are pleased to find bin
occupying the same position io this.
He computed the deficiencies of the
last two years-s U now shown by the
fsete and matured a bill whioh peeped
the Senate for meeting- them. These
deficiencies for two years amonnt to
a half million of dollars rather than
the 1300000 estimated by Got. Rob.

is how these deficiencies un be met

rants payable a year hence bearing in
terest may not be issued to cover tho
floating debt in exoess of the 1200000
bonded debt. It SDoesrs aa if this:
would not conflict with the limitations
of the Constitution. It would not bo
the creation of a debt bat its current
leoogoition and honest settlement.
The Constitution (Art. 3 seo. 47)
limits the creation of a debt to suddIt
deficiencies in the revenue and clearly
contemplates that bonds shall not be
issued aud sold in exoeas of 1200.000
for raising money for these uses. It
certAinly oannot mean to prohibit tho
Legislature from formally recognizing;
our existing obligations and giving to
tbe creditor an evidence of it in ths
Bhape of a promise to pay at a future
day. We argue that the State Las no
right to issue its warrants on tho
Treasury unless there is money pro.
vided to honor it. And this would in
evitably be the case should the $300-
000 in excess of tbe 1200000 proposed
to be funded be sanctioned by the is
suance of State warrants with a knowl
edge ot the fact that there would bo
no mouey to pay them.
We have great confidence in the
ability of tbo Finance committees of
the two Houses which are composed
of their very sblest wembars to deal
wih this knotty question and trust it
may bo doue so that State warrants
may be kept at par and the publio ser-
vant duly compensated for his Services.

Stales district court hore to-day mr.
tion to dismiss as to Swenson & Co.
and Kerr in matter ot International
railroad receivership the caso waa
argued by Hancock and West for acd
Herndon Peeler & Fisher against the
