By iVs-icctntedPrc'-''.] WASHINGTON, July House proceeded, aftot a short parliamentary wrangle, to vote upon the committee amendments to the bankruptcy bill. These amendmuntrt were principally vorbal. In view of the fitct (hat the bill had never been read in the House, Mc- Millan of Tennessee demanded a sep- arate vote on each amendment, and much time was thus consumed. The Committee on Amendments having been disjwaed of, an amend mi-lit was adopted enforcing the laws of the States giving wages for labor a preference. The House passed the Torrey bank- ruptcy bill, with important amend- 117, nays 84. 8RNATE. Morgan introduced a bill to fix the limit of value and provide for the free coinage of silver. Referred to the Committee on Finance. It recites that the market value oi silver bullion is rapidly approaching the value of gold on the standard rela- tion fixed by the laws of the United States; that there are no provisions of law for the- coinage of standard silver dollars or the purchase of silver bullion by the Government when the value of silver bullion exceeds ore dollar for grains of pure silver. It there- foic provides that the unit of value in thu United States shall be a dollar of grains of s-tandard silver or 25.8 gr.uim of gold; that these coins riluill be legal tender for all debts, public and private, that any owner of silver or gold bullion may deposit it at any mint to bo formed into dollars or bars for his benefit, without charge. He called the special attention of the committee to the bill, which he said was the same ns had already re- ceived a majority of 17 in the Senate. Ho hnd introduced it because h.- was convinced that, in the rapid advance of the pi ice of silver bullion in the world, tho time is not far distant, to say the least, when silver and gold bullion will be on u par each other. that time does anive, tlio law, as it now stands, would not permit the Government to buy silver bullion if there was any shade of ap- piuciatioii in its price beyond tho price of gold and there was no provision of the law for the coinage of any silver CM-ept that purchased before silver reached that point. In view of what appeared to be in tho air as well as 011 laml and on sea, in rcgarl to the immediate future of the country, he thought it would be well enough to make a provision so that silver or gold bullion would not be withdrawn from the United States by other interested Governments and hoarded up in their great banking institutes. STIx; Senate resumed the considera- tion of the Indian appropriation hill. A Mob Mqiielr.hed. Bi; Cable ami Associated Press. LONDON, July dispatch from Valparaiso states that a mob attacked the stores in the city of Santiago, the Ccpital of the Republic, and sacked thorn.

By Cable and Associated Press 1 LONDON, -July 24. following particulars of destruction by Ore of the I National line's steamer Egypt are re- jcetved: The Manhattan sighted the ttie j Egypt in full blaze in latitude 28" north, longitude west, bnt being ladon with oil dared not go near the burning vessel. She lowered her boats, and saved all on board. Captain Kobinsoa, of the Manhattan, had only enough provisions for forty persons, and a discussion was had as to whether or not to make Azorea, 250 miles distant. It was finally decided to proceed for Dover, and every one to be placed on short rations. There were 640 head of cp.ttle on the Egypt, j all of which were either burned to death or, breaking loose, plunged over- boafd and were'drowned. For a time there was much confusion on the Egypt, but no panic occurred. The National company chartered a tug at Dover to meet the Manhattan and sup- ply her with provisions. She started at 6 o'clock this evening with a full supply of provisions and other neces- saries for the rescued people. The Colorado Central Wnnhont. By Associated Press.] DCNVEB, July 24. The present washout oo the Colorado Central is the most disastrous that has occurred since the road was built. The loss is esti mated at The amount of truck washed out covers altogether a distance of twenty miles from Forks Creek to Smith Hill, and fifteen miles from Golden to Floyd Hill. The iron bridge afrJForke Creek looks like a bundle of wire it haa been so tangled up. It is impossible for the railroad men to estimate the damage done to the road, but they admit it must be very large, as the road up through there is a very contly piece of railroad con- struction. Two work trains and a hundred men have been working on the road since Tuesday noon, and if nothing further happens it is promised trains will be able to get to Forks Creek some time before noon to-dav.

SOUTH CAROLINA ELEITIOXEEW An Oregon Express Train Off the Track. Another Strike by the London Dook Laborers. Mllver I'D. Bj Associated Press.] WASHINGTON, July price, 50Jjtd an ounce, quoted in London yes- terday for bar silver, while unprece- donted, said Director of the Mint Leech, this afternoon, is largely due to speculation in silver. Of course, the primary cause is HIP passage of the Silver bill. You will observe, if you have watched the stock market, that silver is doing some very lively upward sprinting in the United States just at present, although to-day it has dropped a point. "Certain persona in New York have for some time been engaged in getting a corner on silver, pending the passage of the silver bill. The New York City Western National Bank has alone stowed away in its vaults in the neigh- borhood of ounces, while upward of ounces are in the hands of others in that city. The law goes into effect September 13th next. It will be impossible to tell with anything like accuracy what will be the market price for silver until that date arrives, and for one month thereafter. It may have a still higher tendency, inasmuch as we are com- pelled to buy ounces a month, and it may be several points lower than it is to-day. But, whatever is the market price, that the Secretary of the Treasury is bound to pay. have only to-dav received tho Silver bill officially from Co'ngress, and are now engaged in studying its pro- visions." Hoarding HOHKC IIlowt: Up. By Associated l'i ess. I SAVANNAH July 24 L. Bollard's boarding house in this city, three stories high, was blown np early this morning, and three persons were killed and one injured. There were thirteen people in the house. The ex- plosion shattered the walls and they collapsed in an instant and fell a mass of ruins. Most of the occupants of the house were asleep, and were hurled from their beds and either buried under the falling debris or thrown on top of it. The killed are Mrs. J. Bullard, Lockley and Gus Uobio. The cause of the explosion is a mys- tery. There are many rumors of an ugly nature, but nobody will take the responsibility of making a direct state- ment. One man insinuates there had been a row in the house towards the end of a joliflcation in which the in- mates were indulging. To-Day u HaceH. By Associated Press.)
