Washington Cut, Aug. I. —The •to in accordance with the resolution adopted Wednesday met at lOo’cloikin the morning, but with lees than a dr./. ii members present to listen to the chap Iain’s opening prayer. Gorman at once raised the que-lion of a quorum A roll call showed only thirty two se rot tors present, but others soon came in, and by twenty minute. p«*t to a quorum was present, aud the journal wa* read. An executive commuuiention from Secretary Noble, inclosing a long letter from Maj. Powell, director of the geological survey, on the subject of irrigation and canal sites was laid Is'fore the senate, and Gorman naked lo have it read After the clerk had read part of the letter objection came from the Republican side of the chandler to delaying public business iiy reading a com mini nation that could Iw printed aud laid before mein liers Friday morning.  Warm Words Ktehangrd.  This led to a sharp discussion about printing such documents in the record, and some warm words passed between G uman and Sherman. The former in slated upon having the letter read, although Hawley, chairman of the printing committee, assured him he could have the communication printed within four hours. Sherman finally objected to the further rending of the letter. He did not want business delayed by it Gorman remarked that if the senator front Ohio had bern in the chamber in time this morning under hie own resolution the cumeut could I have been lead and the public business i facilitated. He would not submit to have any senator intimate that becauso he wanted a public document reed in order to get information from it, his object was to delay the public busine**.  Derided Against Gorman.  Sherman resented the emphasising of th* feet that he had ©otne hi to the chamber fifteen minutes after the bour flied few meeting, fie hat! been engaged during those fifteen rn inn tea in public business, which he considered of more importance than listening to the reading of the journal. He was probably present in the acuate four days for the one day that the senator from Maryland was. The senate theu decided that the document should not lie read. Gorman, with some warmth, resented the insinuation that because be I wanted it read he was delaying public business.

HOUSE PROCEEDINGS.  Talk t'nnrerulag Charge* of Corruption Against the Member*.  WAIRINGTON OTT, Aug. I.—In the houee Oates of Alabama, aa a question of privilege, offered a resolution for th* Inveatigation of the chargee of corruption  In connection with th* passage of the silver bill, against members of the houee, cont*!natl in a recent editorial in The National Economist Oates said that when charge of this kind was made by a respectable journal it was worth investigation. Cannon of Illinois contended that if such charges were made specific and by somebody who bad evidence to sustain them, it would be well to look into the matter, but under the circumstances they were unworthy of uotice, Grosvenor of Ohio thought if the house were to take cognisance of the matter ail, it should be •aul to committee. Practically it was no eharge.  A Charge Against the Speaker. Rogers of Arkansas said that is was | generally limb e-food that the speaker passed all the bills in the bonne, therefore (be charge was an inferential one against the shaker, and the resolution ought to be adopted. Paten of Kanas.* was opposed to dignifying the article in question by paying any attention to it. He denied the right of the writer to make a charge la the name of the Farmers’ alliance. Richardson of Tennessee considers.! th* .Milt..na! an assault ii (ton the integrity of the house, and that body owed it to its fair fame to have the matter invest!- I gated.  Not rn Privileged .Mottoe.  The speaker decided the motion was not a privileged one. In doing so, be said these paragraph* were constantly floating about in the newspaper* of the country. They were of vague character and made no statement upon which any body could be ex fleeted to predicate a ladle! or a conviction The house would be put to great inconvenience if any member had tit* right on th* production of a paragraph like this to demand an investigation, Oates appealed from the decision, which, however, wa# sustained by a vote of 85 to TI. The house then went into committee of the whole on the senate amendments to the sundry civil appropriation bill, and discussion of the irrigation clause was re hewed.
