Cal.ill.late* for OfHre. 8TRACIHK, N. Y., Feb. 26.—The twenty-third annual encampment of the New York department of the Grand Army of the Republic wax opened here at 11 a rn. yesterday, and the city decorated itself lavishly for th# occasion. General Russell A. Alger, commander-in-chief, reached the city an hour after the session began, with Lovett of New Jersey, w’ho is his chief of staff and next in command to himself. Among tile other prominent men present are:    Gen. Henry A. Barnum, Gen Martin McMahon and Gen. Richard liar of New York; Gen. John C. Robinson of Binghamton; Corporal James Tanner of Washington; Gen. John A. Reynolds of Rochester: Gen. N. Martin Curtis of Ogdens!hirg; Past Department Commander* Palmer, Treadwell and Coriin* of Alltany, Hedges of Haverstraw and Wood of Wolcott; Floyd Clarkson of New York; James W. Kay of Brooklyn and Department Commander Harrison Clark of Norwich. GKN. A ’ EU SPE AKR. The rain fell in torrents all through the morning, and the idea of an out-of-doors derm .ast ration was for tlffit reason abandoned Chaplain Beaudry of East Alltany opened the encampment with prayer, and T. K Fuller of this city made the address of welcome. Department Commander Clark responding. Just ms the annual refsirts were tieing presented. Governor Alger, a<-companied by a number of officers and by a reception committee entered the ball and were es. airted to a front seat amid cheer* that almost shook the building. In res]tease to repeated calls and u)>on invitation of the de-department commander, the general climbed upon the platform and made a rousing speech. When he had finished, the receiving of the report* was resumed and they were referred to the proper committee*. The reports showed that the past year had been a very succeasful one to the organization. Department Commander Clark, in the annual address, made this allusion to the pension question: “The jien>ion question is one in which we are all very much interested. I most earnestly believe in the service pension. Our soldiers deserve it, and the prosperity of the country, br<Night about and maintained by their brave actions, can well afford it. It shouki he a law.” The greater {art of the afternoon, after the recess for dinner, was occupied in the presentation of resolutions hearing principally upon the | ie us! on question and the employment of veterans in the public service. The encampment lasted until nearly 6 o’clock and just before its close it was derided to make the nomination for officer* last evening and to defer the ballot until this morning at 9 o’clock. This action was pretty generally regarded as a shrewd movement on Hie part of Maj. Floyd Clarkson. The result was a concentration of the opposition to his election, and during the recess whip|>er*-in were sent to a1) the hotels to make sure of a large attendant** at the evening sealion. The other candidates are: Gen. Martin McMahon of New York and Joseph W. Kay of Brooklyn. Col. J. Wndey Kmith, president of the Homestead tank. New York, was also in the field until yesterday morning, when he withdrew in Clarkson’s favor. The combined opp Ration to Clarkson wa* sufficient at last evening's encampment to defeat the w heme for making the nominations and they were accordingly deferred until this morning. Clarkson will tie nominated by Col Smith, McMahon by Gen. Henry A. Barnum and Mr. Kay by David ll. (Juick, past commander of Post Harry I^ee, Brooklyn. Clarkson and Kay have each made a very vigorous tmnvasK McMahon has made no canvass at all. though he has established headquarter* at the Globe hotel. His candidacy did not even become known until many of the delegates, some of them his personal friends, had j pledged thffissIves to either Clarkson or ; Kay and he declines to interfere in any way 1 with the obligation- thus incurred. Only the friendliest feelings an* entertained toward him and if he had only come out earlier as a candidate his election, according to the prevalent opinion, would have been assured. Alfred Lyth of the Bid well-Wilkeson post, Buffalo, and Homer F. Webb, the assembly nergeant-at-arms, are the candidates for senior vice commander. Lyth seems to have a majority of the delegates and his election is predicted, though Webb is likely to push him hanl.    _ CHICAGO’S REPRESENTATIVES. MR. ANDREW CARNEGIE’S DINNER A GREAT SUCCESS. Floral Decors!Iona of SurpaMlni Beauty, I uiqu# M«uu Cards and a («nc#rt for th# Gneats—A War of Words Between Senator* Call aud Chandler—Other Congressional Doings. Washington, Feb 26.—The dinner giveu last night by Mr. Carnegie to the president and oibiiiet and the delegates and officer* of tile International American conference was prof st My the most sn pit rh affair of the kind ever given in the United States. The novel and unique arrangements planned by him were carried out by Mr. William E Curtis, the executive officer of the international conference. The effects in floral de*-"ration and table service were superb. The walls of the new square dining room at the Arlington hotel were literally toinked with spring flower* until it looked like a scene from fairyland. The table wa* in a circle 36 feet rn diameter. Cover* were laid for forty-eight gentlemen. 'Hie centre of the table was a mammoth fourleaved clover of maiden hair fem, over which wa* susjiended a monstrous silver lamp, the brilliancy of which wa* softened by festoons of sea weed that drooled into th*- maiden hair. The angles between tie* leaves of the clover were filled with solid masses of orchids, tulips, ami crocuseet, there being thousands of blossom*, which were coiler ted in New Orleans, Mobile, Savannah, Pensacola, Jacksonville, and other cities of the South, as well as in the greenhouses of Philadc!|»liia, New York, Newport and Boston. The hill of fare was unusually simple. Among the wines and champagnes served were “Twelve apwtles,” sherry and some rare old Madeira. The menu was engraved in fine script upon heavy (levelled blocks of j«apier niache. No French terms were used. In the up|<er left-hand corner of the block were the initials of Mr. Carnegie in two shades of green, w hile the uatne of the guest was by a new and peculiar pro*-ess blown in glass at the bottom. During the dinner a vocal and instrumental concert was given instead of the ordinary orchestral music. M’lle Deem, the famous cantatrice, Mio* Eli'ala-th Johnson, Mr. Herndon Morsell and the Schuliert quartette gave the vocal number*. Miss Alice Raymond rendered with great effect a cornet solo, Mr. Ernst lA*nt played a aolo on the violinoello, Messrs. Klkstein and Andrews a duet for zither* and Mr. Xander presided at the piano. Thera were no formal speeches. They Are to Have a Hearing on the Fair Rite (Jtleslfon. Washington, Feb. Feb. 26.—Several reje reselltativee of Chicago'* in the world's fair matter w ill ap|iear lief ore the house raminit-tee of world's fair to-day and signify their desire in regard to the general bill w hich the committee will re-model and perfect in such a way as to provide for holding the fair at Chicago. The Chicago men are anxious to have the section of the hill providing for the holding of the fair under a national charter eliminated and a substitute permitting a state in-i-orporation inserted. They want the incorporators to lie from the state of Illinois, half to be ap|*iint«d by the governor and half by the mayor of Chicago. A request that a sub-committee of the world'* fair committee (ie designated to visit Chicago and look over the various sit«*s offered with a view to deciding on one of them, will he made to the committee, and if the committee does not look favorably ujxin this then it will (ie asked to allow Chicago men to appear before it and make oral arguments concerning the different sites. _ Mika Is Round to Stick, New York, Feb. 26 —The Sun in it* sporting extra last evening says that Mike Kelly has liven offered f 15,060 by President Spalding to join the Chicago league club this sea non. In addition to this amount Kelly was to receive $5,000 for his services. In an interview Kelly says: “I have gone out with the boys aud I'll stick to them. I haven't much money and this would tie a small fortune, but my family would sooner see me without a dollar than take this money to go hack on my word.’ Mntrte’s New Giants.

THE DAY IN CONGRESS. A I'osKHge - at - Arms Between Sen st or* ( all and ( handler. Washington. Feb. 26.—In the senate yes-ten lay Mr. Chandler’s resolution censoring Mr. Call for inserting in The Record words that had not (cen *]token was called up and Mr. Sherman moved its reference to the committee on privileges and elections. Mr Call stated, as a matter of personal privilege, that the Wallington Post contained an article w ith the head line, “Call's (titter remarks. He sli|tped a paragraph into the Cong reask Hull Record.” That, Mr. Call said, was false. He had slipped nothing into Tile Record that had not Iteen in sulwtam-e ut tens!. He gave notice to the senator from New iianqishire, who had arraigned him here tty the resolution that be (Mr. Call) would arraign him (Mr. Chandler) before the senate and would demand an investigation by the committee for making an accusation Up* was untrue. He (Mr Call) would eon-vt> t the senator on evidence of his own that he did not hear aud know that he (Mr. Call) bad uttered on the floor of the senate sul’stantislly the whole of the charge contained in the paragraph. He would not ask the censure by the senate of the senator from New Hampshire, but would leave him to the ju-t judgment of (Hiblk* opinion for having h a>dhis (Mr. Call's) remarks and (laving ncitN-r the courage nor the manhood to resent th-*m. Mr. Sherman declared that the rules of the senate h-id just lieen violated by tho senator from Florida iii as gross a manner as he had ever witnessed. The Record would show what the senator had said and he Maid he ho(ied the (-omnii)tee would examine it. When the senate of the United States came to such a condition that the word “coward” *-ould be applied to a senator and that a opnator could lie charged with stating anything falsely, It seemed to him that the senate was receding from the dignity which hod distinguished it from the foundation of the government. Mr. Call said that if he had violated any of the rules of the w-nate by any olMervation* that he hail made he w ithdrew them and apologized to the senate. After further discussion the resolution was sent to the committee ou priviliges and elections. Mr. Chancier said: “I will not reply to the gentleman from Florida in unparliamentary language. The complaint that I made was that the senator had inserted in his remarks words *\ bleb he bad not uttered The *ena-tor wrote language in the report accusing me of all the crim* s in the decalogue and he Jhas now, this morning, ( barged me with being a coward for not replying to that which I did not hear and that which he afterward wrote in The Record report. When the senate has decided on this stage what language it is parliamentary to use I w ill take occasion to defend myself from all the imputations of the senator from Florida.” Mr. Hawley—The remarks made a few minutes ago by the senator from Florida tempt me to say t hat however much he may reproach the senator from New Hampshire for not (laving responded to his hitter and personal onslaught, I with most of the senators on this side, would have protested in language as indignant as if it was directed against them against that gross violation of parliamentary law which he says he committed the other day, and w hich I say be did not. Sir. Hherman's motion to refer the resolution to the committee on privileges and elections w as agreed to. The senate then proee««ded to business on the calendar aud the following bill, among others, was pas-ed; Granting a pension of $100 a month to the widow of Maj. Gen. Judson Kilfiatrick. An amendment to make the pension $166 2-3 had been made by Mr. McPherson, and after much discussion had been rejected— yeas, 12; nays, 23. The bill was flamed Yeas. 36; nays, 7. Mr. Call offered a resolution, which was agreed to, calling on the commission of fish and fi-herics for information as to the production aud gathering of sponges in the United States and as to the best means of increasing the sponge industry. At 2 ©clock the educational bill was taken up and Mr. Coke addressed the senate rn opposition to it. He said the hill violated the constitution and as a measure of policy was unwise and mischievous. If the common school system could lie taken in charge by the national government there was no subject of ■tate jurisdiction that would not he brought under th* power of congee**. Ax to th* school fa didies of the South. Mr Coke said they were being enlarged every day. Mr Stanford spoke in favor of the bill. It proceeded, he said, on the right principles. Illiteracy was conceded, as was also the fact that wane of the states could not meet the question Federal aid, therefore, tow-ame neceesary.    Uni venal education would ob literate race distinctions. The education of the masses would demonstrate the beneficial effects of the power of production and in-crease the respect for latter and make more general the conception of its dignity.

The St. .lame* Gazette expresses pleasure that Chicago has l»een chosen since in its opinion foreigners visiting New York would merely nee another Lur Ion whereas a visit to ('hieago will enable them to see several states and at the same tune obtain a fair idea of the exjiaiise and re souruea of the country. The Globe similarly expresses satisfaction at the selection. Chicago, it concludes, is the very (s-st place for the fair tiecnusn it is more (-entrnl than any of the other cit ic* suggested. Against tbe contention tim! Chicago is I,(KIO mile* from the sea-board, Tile Globe argues that that dintam-e is a matter of no account in America when- spore is annihilated us it is in no other country in the world.

The other {wqiers favor Chicago, despite the distance to lie covered in reaching it, the journey from New-York being on# of constantly varying interest and a source of wonderment to stranger*, while the city of I,ODO,(NMI inhabitants standing where, sixty years ago, there w-svs scarcely a habitation, if indeed there was one, is in itj-elf the most remarkable exhibit ever presented by any peo|4e to the admiration of the world.
