ALBANY, March 11 court of claims met yesterday afternoon and took up the Snaith assembly ceiling Tbe state opened the defense by putting Capitol Com- missioner Perry on the stand. The original plans for a ceiling to replace the atone ceil- ing whore shown by witness. He testified as to the expense of shoring up the old ceiling. The timber usoii was intended to be used in reconstruction. The state asked Mr. Perry if he would object to examining the ceiling as to its construction. He said that situated as lie was, it was not an agreeable task to have anything to ilo with it The examination was deferred until Mr. Perry would answer definitely whether or not he would examine the ceiling as 1111 expert. Charles B. Brush of New York city, a civi engineer of large experience, was called for the state. He was appointed by the assembly of 188H to examine, as an expert, the con- struction of the ceiling. He had examined the ceiling personally sinoe then. He had ex- amined the original plans and specifications. There were radical departures from the orig- nal plans and presented drawings showing such departure The entire iron construc- tion WHS changed, and the girders instead of bracing the east and west walls a-s reqnired to, braced the other walls. The change had materially changed the cost and the present i onstruction was cheaper and not so staple. Construction under the original speoiflca- lions was perfc-cHy practical and would have made the ceiling better and stronger. The walls had been cut away and weakened by the present construction. The walls had been cut to the depth of four inches and the safety of the building demanded their imme- diate restoration. If the construction had not been changed, the ceiling would not, as it lines now, cut the arches and mutilate the chamber Them is pounds less than contemplated in iron work and that is a gain to the contractor of over The con- tractor had also gained in not hax-ing to 'over old bnrk work with cut stone. The ceiling was weak as was shown by the fact that it had already settled. No support was given the walls as required, and the con- dition of the building is menacing and un- safe. The cost of the ceiling should be about exclusive of papier mache, that would allow a profit of about The assembly stair-case was not not constructed according to mid it was now settling.

THE BLAIR BILL RECEIVES FURTHER CONSIDERATION. The ArkanuM u.Bn. t U> Whleh Caa W..U of SiwMhM-A font Acrleultural DipartmDt. and of landu within the Indian Territory The bill appropriating for a public building at Halt Lain City. Utah, waspasMd. Tbe bill providing for an Inspection of meats for exportation, prohibiting im- of adulterated article, of food or drink, and aotboricing president to make proclamation in certain cases and for other purposes, was taken from calendar discussed until a p. m., when bill was laid aside without action. The educational bill was taken up, and Mr Hlpins spoke IB mpport of the bill. Th. Mil was based upon two great factor that illiteracy existed in South, and that South wu not possemed of means adequate to meet it. Replying to argument that one effect of tbe Mil would to destroy spirit of the southern people, to take away from them their natural force, and to emae- uulate the Houth of strength and vigor, be Insisted that did not bear out that argument, and pointed to the fact tha localities received state aid for common schools and tbat the states themeJvw have received large aid in public lands from tbe general government without any such had affect following. Mr. Jones of Arkansas said the legislature of his state had Instructed him to vote against the bill and be would do no. Tbe question of ite passage wan not one of prin- ciple but of expediency. He had hoped that ending negroes might bo led to think soberly, to reason in a ilMnusxionate the result of going to school but as tbe result of showing that white people of tbe South wished to do foi -the colored people the very best they could. The schools would help the race question; but they were not the nost powerful agencies. There would have to be n moral uplifting of fee negro; and this would be, of necessity, a dow work, For that there would hare to be 9; but it seemed that the pretended f i Monds- of the negro did not intend that there -hould be peace. If the negro could be taught to tliink be would leant that, when he was moderate and conservative, his white neighbors were with him. He would learn .hat those who undertook to Incite him to nurder and arson were bis worst enemies; that his best friends were those who em- Jloyed him; but who would not be ruled by him, and that tbe intelligence of the country nust govern it. When the negro had been aught that, a great kindness would have KWII done him and he would be shown tbe only practb-al way ol working out the Inter- of both races at the Houth. The bill was then laid aside and tbe senate, after a short, secret session, at p. m. ad- ourned. IK THIt HODftK. WASHINGTON, Marr-b home yes- terday concurred in the senate resolution providing for an investigation by a joint committee of the senate and bonne commit- ees on immigration in the workings of the federal and state relative to inilnlgra- ion from foreign countries.

The house then, in committee of tbe whole, ook up the Oklahoma territory bill, but without making much progress the commit- tee rose, and the bouse at p. m. ad- mrned. AGRICULTURAL REPORT. tntlKtlra nf Grain IlUtrlbnllem iMned by Krcrrtary Husk. WASHINGTON, March statistical report of the department of agriculture for March relates to the distribution and con- sumption of com and wheat. It makes the nroportton of the com crop in the bands of growers 45.0 per cent., or busheb and of the wheat crop 9 per cent., or IM bushels. Tlw stock of corn on hand s the largest ever in March, of crop, after the mildest winter. The ei .u of eight annual returns Is bushels. lu.i of List year was bushels. 'be estimated consumption to March 1 to only hist and in 1880. The proportion of raer- hantable corn of tbe crop of 1880 to 85 7 per cent, exceeded in recent year, only by those of 1S84 and 1880. The average value of all on the 1st of December was S8.8 cents per bushel. The average on the 1st of March was 27.9 cents for merchantable and I9.il tor nmerchiuitable, making an amrivo-ate value f less than December mate. The wheat crop of 1S8D wms exceeded by he crop of 1880, 1WJ and 1884. Tbe average remainder In tbe bands of growers on March for ten years past has been bushels; the average crop during this period bushels. Tbe present returns are ery full and saliNtactory, the state aunts' stin latps agreeing closely with those of tlie epartment consolidation. The result may be accepted with absolute confidence as an pproxiination as close as can be made by ocal estimate.. Most of tile wheat in ariners' hands is in states which have no sur- lus over consumption, or In Ihose In which nucb the larger portion t is seen, therefore, tbat the available supply or exportation and for distribution to uly is small. depleted farm have been measurably filled, except In a few states, but It will require tbe pressure of igh prices to squeeze any considerable pro- portion of them into commercial distribution.
