WASIIIVOTOX, Jan. feature of yesterrlay's senate was the speeches and political debate of (Senators I'oscoe and Chandler on the paragraph in tho president's menage ivsini-ting fedi'i-al control of olcc-tions. After niutme business tho introduction of bills and favorable reports from committees on bills providing for tho admission of Wy- oming anil for a temporary form of govern- ment for Oklahoma, Mr. Pascoe addressed the senate on the nibjwt of federal control ol elections. Reconstruction measures ami the work ol army ollicers, treedmeifs bureau agonts, camp followers and strollers, he sai.l, wore ell'ortKof the Hnpnblicun parly to build up southern "iinnex" to their party and thus prolong its of power. It turned out to be a of sand, and now the attempt wot to be made to the electoral inncliiiiery of the slates. Tho inos-sago ol' the preH.lent, he said, had contained no .syllable in favor of free and honest ele. except ns tlio suppression of tlio votes of colored people, at the South. There was no idenco b. loro tlio country of my snt'li suppression. None had been com- imniieMed to congress. It was simply a mat- ter of inference. He presented sonic election s from Eastern, Western and South- ern states to prove that "tbe silent voter ia increasing m every section of the country." Ill conclusion he stated that his voice and vote would be given in favor of standing by the methods of election which had come down from the (lays of Washington and Jefferson. JiR. CHAXULEK'S UKPLY.

Thero was one citizen of Florida, said Mr Chandler, who will not come, north to testify concerning political outrages, and who might be termed a "silent voter." That man was John Burr, a colored of Modi.son county, Florida, who in October last, having been to Jacksonville as a witness conceming political outrages, was killed ou his return to Madison county by the locrats of that county on account of the Luitiniony w hich he tad given. Mr. Chandler also referred to the driving by masked Democrats from his home in Jef- ferson county, Fla., of J. U. Cole, because be was a prominent Republican; and he read ex- tracts on the subject of tho outrage from ar- ticles in the New York Tribune, the Monti- cello, Fla., Constitution, the Gainesville, Fia., Advocate and the Milwaukee Sentinel. He loped the senator (Mr. Tusene) would inform ;he senate whether he did not coasider such transactions o.s these reasons w hy it would be wjse and judicious for tbe government of the United States to pass, some law for the pro- ection of Republican voters and for fair consideration of Mr. Butler's bill for the pur- of making some observations thereon.

Miss HattieO'Hara and Mrs. Nellie Smith testnieil as to the good character of Miss rms-'-l. Dr. Strnhle, ono of tho physicians present at tbe autopsy, corroborated the statements made by the other doctfx-s concerning the condition of the body. His statement that death might havo been caused by fright or the administration of any volatile matter, inch ns a.-onite or prussic acid, caused a hum in the court room. Professor II. B. Cornwall, the Princeton college expert, who examined the stomach of 51 rs. Kniffen, testified that the examination did nut develop nny poisonous matter. The analysis hud a slight trace of mor- phia, but not in sufficient quantities to enable him to assort Its presence. After the examination of several other witnesses, the coroner's jury adjourned for tbe week, thus tin-owing the responsibility of the case on tlie grand jury. If this body fails to indict any one for the murder the decision of the coroner's jury will bo given to the grand jury of the May term of court. The Hon. John H.
