WASHINGTON, December house amend- ment to the senate joint resolution for the issue ot arms to the states of North and South Dakota, Wyoming and Nebraska was concurred in by .the senate, it extends to the state of Montana. Sir. Paddock presented- the protest of the Farmers' Alliance, now in convention at Ocala, Fla., against the passage of the Conger lard bill. Mr. Morgan offered a resolution calling on the secretary of the treasury for Information as to tho sums of money paid by the United States on vouchers ot requisitions mado toy or in favor of John I. Davenport as au election supervisor, since August either for his own compensation or Jor that ot others employed under his direction and supervision, in the enforcement of election laws. Mr. the resolution lie over. Mr. desire the information for the purpose of the debate now pending the election bill. I want to know how much money the government of the TSaited States has hereto- fore expended through the agency of this one man, and wto has been the chief supporter of this bill, n-t-u bottl in tUe souse and in. the senate committee. I i nwthnr regard this more asabill to put Mr. Davenport ami return alive, but Father nto a Ufe offlce ln c-ty for any >ther purpose; and therefore I want to know what has been doing heretofore. Mr. bill does not have any effect on ;he gentlemen named except to have more stringent dealings In the matter of fees. The going over the resolution till Monday will cauaa no berious difficulty. The resolution went over. The election bill was taken up, and Mr. Gray resumed the floor. Mr. Hoar asked unanimous consent to have a reprint of the in the original bill and in senate substitute to be in paiallel col- -mne. The motion gave rise to a IOUR discussion, in the course of which numerous and somewhat variant explanations were given by republican members of tbe committee on privileges and elec- tions as to the action of the majority on what is known as the domiciliary provision of the bill. "While there had been a general consensus of opin- ion yesterday that the committee had agreed to eliminate that provision, and that its appearance in the bill was the result of a mistake on tho part of the clerk or printer, there was today an entire changeof opinion, and a long time was spent in trying to explain the matter and mike it clear. In the course of discussion, Mr. Teller, a mem- ber ot tho committee, stated that when the bill was reported, he had reserved tlio right to vote against it ii he fit, and to vote for any amend- ment to it which commended itseLt to las judg- ment Somo portions of tho bill he endorsed, ana some portions of It he did not endorse. He trusted that some of the objectionable features would come out of it beiore tho bill came to a vote. If not, he should exercise the right (as ho always had exercised it) to vote according to his judgment and courage. Mr. Vance, the democratic member of the com- mittee on privileges and elections said that his resolution was that no part of the boupe bill had been struck out by the committee, and he recalled what he had said to the he wanted the bill to appear before the American, people in the of its original deformity, so that if anything was struck out of the bill, it was struck out by the majority in private session. I was not there, and cannot testify as to what was done, for "I stand not in the counsels of the un- godly." [Laughter.] Mr. Daniel referred to statements of members of the committee as the tower of Babel, about which there was nothing but confusion. The bill, he said, should be referred back to the com- mittee, so that the Irish should be properly com- pounded; and the committee should itself ask to have the bill recommitted so as to have an oppor- tunity to revise work so imperfectly done. It was :30 o'clock when Mr. Gray was able to proceed with bis argumentt no agreement having been arrived at as to the reprinting of the bill. He read from a report in The New York Herald, of October 1872, of the hearing before Chief Super- visor Davenport.

After some further remarks in this vein, Mr. Hoar suggested an adjournment, as Mr. Gray de- sired to go home to Delaware this evening, and, after a short executive session, the senate, at p. m., adjourned.

WAS THEBE MUKDKK. Two Negroes Under Arrest on Sosplclon of a Serious Crime- Lemon Kinley and John Taylor, two negro men, are locked up in the station house. They are there on suspicion of having commit- ted murder in Cobb county some time Friday night. Kinley was arrested on the notification of a citizen of Cobb county, who pointed him out to the police. Taylor was found on Decatur street Last night, and his suspicious actions caused his arrest. There was a cornhusking at Gilmer station near Marietta Friday night, which Kinley and two other negroes, Weat and Mit Jones, at- tended together. On their way home, Kinley says, they met two men, who inquired the way to Marietta. That nigiit these same two men, he says, came to "SYest Jones's house, where the three were staying, and asked for lodging. Kinliiy sayb the mon were refused, but returned and broke in the house. He escaped by another door, but alterwards learned that the two Joneses had been killed. Kinley told this story on the Western and Atlantic train, which he boarded near Gilmore station. He was suspected of having had a hand in the tilling, if there was any killing, and when the train gut to Atlanta he was placed un- der arrest. Two other men are supposed to have assisted Kinley, as two were seen with him when he got on the train at Gilmore. The police have not received any official notice of any murder in Cobb county, and telegrams sent there failed to develop any further informa- tion in regard to it than that given the officers by tho Cobb county citizen who pointed Kinley out lorariest, except Kiuley's own statement, Xhe Only Remedy.

This arose from the front of the building being painted blue. The proprietor was Jack Hams, ne who died with his boots on in Austin. The inside of the place was constructed for a theater. Instead of orchestra chairs, dress circle and gallery, the floor was level. Hound tables were placed as thickly around as they could be and still be accessible. At one end was a stage. From table to table flew waiters with whisky and beer. Around tbe tables-eat cow boys, with their broad, stiff brimmed som- breros, the crown encircled by golden snakes, the brim embroirderod with gold and_ silver thread. Most of them wore in flannel shirts, with the Lone Star conspicuously embroiid- ered on the bosom. Their trousers were of corduroy or velveteen, slashed below tbe knees, or tucked in. boots of fine leather closely fit- ting their small, high arched feet. On their heels were large roweled spurs with, jingling bells attached. Around their waists were red silken sashes and a belt from wbicb were sus- pended two ivory handled Colt's improved "six The word revolver was only used by "tenderfoot." Sprinkled through the crowd were a few greasers, sinister looking, treacherous and cruel as their mixed Spanish, Moorish and Indian blood would make them. Now and then one would see the small hands and feet, the clear cat features and graceful form of a true Castilian. Here and there would be the eastern man with eastern cut clothes aud hat. Now and then the well built and proud, self-confident Englishman would attract a tteution by hifi freedom of speech and independent walk. The proprietor, Jack, was a gambler and desperado.

A woman told the child that she could get her a place where her voice would bring money to swell the small Income of tbe household. She was to sing in concerts in faraway Texas.
