But as soon as it was defi- nitely ascertained that Tilden was not elected, ibe rebel bonds went down again to nothing United States bonds, the sale of which stopped on the news that the Democratic party hud carried the election, advanced immediately on the reception of the information tele, graphed to London by Secretary rill that Hayes hud been elected and would bo peacefully iniiugurated Presi- dent of the United Stales Winonu II fpublican.

WASitiMrro.t, Jan 7, 1877. The political situation has undergone no material change within the week past, and it ift almost a fruitless task to re- view the rising and filling pulsations of passing days All the ttilk of com- promise, and the rumors whio h to-day inspire the Democrats wiih hope and to- morrow revive Republican spirits are speculation and conjecture. It is be- lieved by souie that the Senate und House committees new at work will jisrree on u titisfatory plan fur conduct- ing the. count, but uiy judgment, from what I know ofthulew meetings so lur held, is thai no such agreement will be reached. The only possible way would be the adoption of a plan that would enable the House to elect Tilden President and the Senate to elect Wheeler Vice-President .But I do not think inanj of the Republicans in the Senate are now ready to agree to this. No joint meeting o.'the commit I eos has yet boon held. The reports of the S-uth- ern committees are anxiously awaited by both sides, and with them come souiu definitedeteruiinatioii of the course of procedure something that shall solve the uncertainty in which the whole matter is still enveloped Much denei'ds upon the "pinion and action of certain Senators, who. as up to this time Il >ias bocn with much confidence BUine and ConUiog are preparing to repudi. ate Hie of rctuniing boards in unJ ih.it otiiur Senators prominent will follow in their wake But this uppoars to be conjec- ture, likti all the rest, for there is no ut- terance or other substantial indication of such a purpose Even yesterday Sen- -ator in presenting n memorial from business men of New York urging a peaceful and satisfactory settlement of the controversy, did uot let fall a word thr.t could betray hia own position, though liis reutaiks were received in almost breathless expectation. The Oregon case ia cut ling a good deal of a figure in the controversy just now Mr. Urcnin and Governor Gruvcr arc botli hero, and for the moment ant the real lions of the day. The Govern or id to have a serenade this evening Senator Morion's committee has had buth before it, but without eliciting anything of consequence. The Senator thinks that a large sized marc's nest could be discovered if only he could get hold of telegraph dispatuhei sent be- tween New York and the capital of Ore- gon. So far, however, there is no- thing to sustain this notion and the prevailing opinion is that Morton1 has f-truck the wrong trail this lime. Sen- ator Wright expressed some rather un- complimentary mentimcriu Grover's action the other day while the latter reclined on a sofa near the cloak room ot the tionatc chamber. Hut the Governor took it cuolly. Whatever may be the differences of opinion he talks mid acts like a man who believes he ia legally right. There is one thing upon which pub- lic sentiment in Washington does not appear divided, and that is that the few days between the holidays and a few more hanging on either edge of the same, cannot be given up whollo to serious work. All sojourners here this season caught a little of this general spirit of revelry by und conse- quent apathy by day which infects the resident population generally. Social 'ife has been picking up wonderfully We have been in the midst of a season of dinner's, festivals, receptions, mat- inees, carvinals, and Germans. And o make things still more jolly for pleas- nre-seekers. the heavy fall of snow on New Y cars's day and 1'ie unprecedented run of bleighiug was timely. It is a real old orthodox New KngUnd winter. The Avenue" is now from morning till night one of the livliesi scenes of gaiety to be witnessed anv- where The only thing the people sui- ter from, necessary for general out door Mil-lit, is the scarcity of sleighs The opportunity for sleigh rides here is riire that thu supply of sleighs is very limited. They are worth their weight in gold almost.
