It was anticipated that he would give Shelletilierger a heavy sentence, hut nothing like what he gave him was looked for. TMK PRISONER WF.EFH VIOLENTLY.

W ashington, May 23 —In the house ye* terday Mr. Du tine! I of Minnesota, from the committee on census, reported a bill amendatory to the census act. Passed.

J A bill wa* passed appropriating IDU, UUU to supply a deficiency in the appropriation for public printing and binding The bouse then went into committee of the whole, Mr. Burrows of Michigan in the chair, ou the river and harbor hill Mr Henderson of Illiuoi*. chairman of the committee eu river* and harbors, ex (din lied the provis ion* of the bill, stating that it appropria toil $20,1132, HOU, based upon estimate* aggregating $30,400,000. He Iielieved that there wa* no money that weut out of the treasury that wa* so much in the interest outlie |ample of the country as the mouey extended in the improvement of rix’ers and hari>oni. Mr. Blttchford of louisiana said the fact that a great anti disastrous flood had recently occurred in the lower valley of tho Mississippi river wa* a sufficient ex cuse (if excuse were needed > for calling th# attention of the house to the requirements of that stream. That great river had a way of |»erindicaily overflowing it* banks to the great destruction of property, and often to the dent ruction of human life; ami it was time that congress should be waking up to the idea that something should lie done to harness its waters. The waters that do wed to Louisiana came lowu from New York aud all states north of the Missouri river. He found explicit authority in the constitution justifying congress iu rest raining flood water*. The late flood ha«t demonstrated not only that the levee system was a failure, but that an adequate system of levees would prevent flood. Wheu the post route of the Mississippi river was deM royed, it was plain that the general government had author ity to erect works to protect that post route. Under tile general welfare clause, also, the government had a right to re strain the fl'ssi waters of the great river. Mr Catching* of Mississippi urged that f he improvement of the river would furnish greater relief to the western farmer* thau md vt ii lug rl*e that congress could do. He defended the levee system. Mr. Wheeler of Alabama advocated the appropriation of $5UU,(JU0 for the im provetneut of the Tennessee river. Mr. Kerr of Iowa attacked the hill,which was defended by Mr. Grosvenor of Ohio. Mr. Boat tier of Louisiana spoke in favor of an amendment which, he said, he would offer if opportunity were precented, to strikeout the clause providing that noue f the appropriations for the Mississippi shall is* expended to repair or build levees for the purpose of reclaiming lauds or preventing injury to lauds or private prop erty by overflow*. The committee then rose. Mr. Quinn of New York introduced a bill reducing to I cent an ounce or fraction thereof, the postage drop letters in cities of IOU,UUU inhabitants or over. IN THE YEN ATE.

The silver bill was then taken up aud Mr. Daniel addressed the senate in favor if silver currency The financial system of the country, hV said, was in disarray. comprehended taxation, currency aud debt Separately and collectively they were out of joint. The currency was insufficient in volume to maintain price*, and was irresponsive to the laws of trade ’axation was excessive, a worse than useless burden, aud the public debt had been (nit iu such anomalous relation to the laws that the government appeared on iioth sides of the sales counter In the most ontradictory position. Mr Dauiel spoke of the demonetization act of lHTTt as having beeu smuggled hrough congress aud signed by tile prescient ignorantly. Mr. Sherman denied his last statement aud said the act of 1873 had lieen discussed In congress for two years and largely distributed throughout the country. The silver bill wa* laid aside without action and the naval appropriation bill was taken up. The amendment* reported by the committee striking out an appropriation of $30,OOO, for m>airs to the dry dock at the Hoaton tjftvy yard, and the -aine amount for reconstructing buildings at the Portsmouth ye rd were debated at some length.

The bill went over without action. After brief secret session the senate adjourned. To Fanlight**!! Governor Hill.
