LANSINU, Mick, Jan. the house yes- terday a number of unimportant bills wore noticed. At tbo morniug session the speaker announced tho house standing committees, j which are in the maiu well received. Tbe j chairmanship of the judiciary coinmittea was j giveu to Ilr. George H. Hopkins, who was j tho defeated candidate for speaker. I in noticed with nome intercut that tho speaker, j though an open aud avowed champion of Mr. Ferry, has given tho chairmanship of some of tbo more important committees to anti-Ferry men. No Democrat or Greenbacks gets a chairmanship in a house committee, though in j the thirteen chairmanships are given to t the oppoHition, and eomo of them tlio more i important committees. i Tho senatorial situation rcmaina practically I unchanged. There have boon rnmoru of a i disinroyration eince the members returned tho adjournment on both sides, and namea of nurabors been freely used iu connection therewith. While it is possible that uuch in tbe case, there IB certainly no visible evidence of any change, aud it in impossible to satisfactorily trace any of the rumors to a definite foundation. Sanator Ferry ia not bore, having departed for Wash- ington. Neither is his brother on the ground. Itico A. Bold, chairman of tho Ferry com- mittee, und one ot the shrewdeut iu the state, holds tho fort in I'orry'n room.

Sunator Jline said that tho Ferry members had returned from their homes strengthened instead of weakened; that tho majority rule is still bolicved in by the great masa of tlie Itopublican party; and that the -taT: wagging tho dog" ill this case would prove a failure.
