WklMiyvTnt, .lane 8 — In the senate yesterday morning a conference was ordered on the un val appropriation bill. The uliw’ bill mu tliei. taken up aud Mr Aion ill uuuleaned the tieuale. lie had bern iu favor of doubling tbs amount ef silver bullion pure baaed aud had been desirous of doing almost anything in that direction, except abandoning absolutely and forever the Iii metallic standard of stoney. But the followers of the new silver gospel were not easily satisfied They demanded the coinage of all the diver at the expeiiae of t he government. They also wanted the treasury notes or certificates to be made a legal tender for all debta, public aud private. Theu they a Muted the treasury rewsrve to be cut down to tau I ii I lions aud the hundred* of millions of gold now beld for the redemption of legal tender notes to be reduced to fifty mil lions Finally, rather than anything else, they wanted free coinage for all the American silver, and for ail that might be brought into the United State* from Mexico or nuy other country. The cost of coining silver, (about 2 per cent.) was to lie borne by the government, and the de pod tor* of diver bullion were to receive all the difference in value between bullion aud Htandard dollars That was the feast to which the senate was invited by the distinguished senators from Colorado aud Nevada (Teller aud Jon#*). The wage earners of the United Mate* were to be counted by millions and were the moat numerous creditor class of the country (and, be believed, the largest In ainouut). It wa* that ti ass that it was now proposed to pay off in cheaper or in depreciated standard money aud to require to pay higher prices for auythiug they had to buy. Could there be anything, be asked, more likely in all parts of tbs country at an early day to provoke strikes for higher wage* Mr. Morrill had no faith In the stories of public and private indebtedness of the uouutry. He believed if correct fig tires could be obtained it would be found that the indebted ne** per capita Manuever less than in ISM). He believed that by wise aud moderate legislation a sufficient amount of silver might tic utili/.ed, aud yet a bi metallic standard lie maintained. He diu not naut to have the United States divorced from the commercial world, but that was uot the policy o’. those wrho hail led off iu the debate. Their transparent design was only thinly attempted to lie concealed to go, by a single bound, to a silver standard. lf the oouutry was to have but a single •ta lid a rd he preferred t bat that standard ihould be gold rat lier than silver. He wouj.t, however, be glad to see both maul ;aiue«l, aud with tile expectation that with a very liberal increase of silver, and with good management ou the part of the treasury department, the panty of value would lie preserved silver advaucing a good deal and gobi receding somewhat in value A* to the obloquy frequently attempted to be thrown ou the congress of 1873, iu connection with the cessation of silver coinage, there was no reason what ever in it, because at that time a silver dollar wa* worth 8 per cent. more than a gold dollar The depreciation of silver hail been caused not by that act, but partly because of the demonetization of silver in [ Enrol*-, aud partly by the increase of the silver production iii the world. Mr. (’all, rising to a question of privilege, referred tit a pH iii pit let published against him by VV. I). Chipley, in which he was accused of false swearing and disgrace! ill transactions in a land deal in Florida. He declared that the pamphlet from first to last w as a falsehood, aud that It was published Hi the interest of the conspirators against legislation In liehalf of the Isrople of Florida. The conference report ou the militAry acad, my bill was presented aud agreed to aud then the conference report on the army appropriation bill was again takeu Bp aud the canteen system proposed by the bill was discussed The coufereuce report being to the effect that un intoxicating drinks should lie sup plied iu canteens or in traders’ stores in states or territories where prohibition legislation exist# Mr. Allison claimed that the reform recently instituted, of substituting the canteen for the sutlers’ store wus well received in the army, and that the house conferees had presented numerous letters from various military posts, written by chaplains aud others claiming that the present arrangement was In the Interest of good discipline and morality. Mr. George thought the provision diw criminated against enlisted men in favor of officers Mr. Hale thought the canteen system would make itself obnoxious iu a little while Mr. Plumb said the tight was between the cauteeu aud the (amt trailer, whom he described as "the curse of the army.” Mr Hale-The senator from Kansas has lived loug enough to kuow that there is hoHssty aud sincerity and philanthropy in tbs world, and he will have# hard time in persuad.ug the thousands and thousands of honest uieu and women all over the country who look upon the cautecn sc heil-e as a lute k ward step, that they are being bounded on by the poat-tratters The peat trader is a bugbear He is got up iu the imagination of the senator from Kau aaa The real issue is this uew departure legalizing the setting up of the United States government as a seller of liquor to the soldier. Mr. Plumb aud Mr. Iiawes sparred over the que-ttiuu for a short time aud Mr, Plumb was led to say that Mr Dawes could make more mistateuients thau auy man he ever knew; aud that he believed tbat Mr. Dawes made them kuowiugly. Mr. Allison said that the men who were opposing the cauteeu knew that the Hoi diers at Fort Myei could come into Wash lug ton auy day aud get drunk under the dome of the Capitol. The secretary of war was trying uot to increase intemperance, but to institute a reform which would lessen desertion and elevate the esprit du corps of the army After further discussion the question was takeu aud the conference report w as agreed to -85 to 8. The nays were !3eua tore Blair, Colquitt, Dixon, George, Hale, Sanders, Teller and Turpie. Mr. Edmunds offered a resolution in trusting the committee on fisheries to make early investigation into the administration of the United States fish commissioner’s office, especially in reference to the changes in the form and compensation of the employes, and aa to allege^ favoritism or undus administration. FA asked unanimous ooueent to have the rm elution confide*»d now', rem*"king that Mr. Mi’butisiil, til* re immesh >n«*r, truest ly i rquo-tr<i t b- invr-tsqnfitm on ne-taunt of recent newspaper accusations agal as* him Mr Plumb objected aud *fce rtwolutiOB went over. The silver bill was again taken up and Mr Hart is addressed the tamale. After a review and condemnation e^tbe act of 1878 drni«tn*tixiac a1 terr he compared the various ponding prepositions and said that he should vote (or the ire* coinage of silver; ami. if he should support the nearest approximation Gilt that lo* mieht be able to secure ll he wa* ion. d to decide between the bill, as reported from the finance committee, aud the legislation of I*78 (for the coinage of at least two million diver d.ti I*rs a mouth) he should vote for the committee's bill. Mr. Harris went on to speak of the two propositions to furnish relief to the farmers by establi*hing a ware house system for the dejMmtt of certain crops slid the Issuing of treasury notes for DU percent of their market value and by lending money to farmers on their real estate at the rat* of i jier cent. a year interest. Even if such measure** were constitutional laud he was convinced that they were uot) Ie believed that they would uot benefit the farmer, but would prove a serious injury aud loss to him. At the close of Mr. Harris’ speech the silver bill weut over till to-dav. After a brief secret session the senate adjourned. IN TNK HOUSE. Washington, June 8.—Yesterday was suspensiou of the rules day in the house. On motion of Mr. Burrows of Michigan, the motion to reconsider tbs vote by which the house ordered a coufereuce on the bill for the relief of A H Emory, was laid on the table, The bill therefore goes iuto | conference. After the defeat of several motions to suspend the rules aud pass bills, Mr Lodge t of Mansaehussrtts, moved to suspend the 1 rules and pass a bill grautlng four con ieuined canuon to the Abraham Lincoln Poet of Charlestown!, Mass This was also lost. The session of the house up to this time I was remarkable in oue respect The principal object of the member* present j —barely a quorum -seemed to be to kill time aud prevent any measure of general Importance beiug called up. The Lodge bill wan the target for many attacks. Every mem lier who desired to secure cou-Jeuiued eau non for au army post in his district ma.ii* objection, aud a number of (bort "home conium pf iou” speeches were made, i Mr. Anderaou of Keutucky raised a laugh wheu, in response to a remark by Mr. Flower of New York, he suggested that all the cannon should be used to ald New York to erect a monument to lien.

On motion of Mr. Wright of Pennsylvania a bill was panned to ratify an agree ment eurered into by commissioners of New York aud Pennsylvania in regard to the boundary linen lief ween those states On mot iou of Mr. Morrow of California the senate bill was passed relieving tbs I ii ion Iron works of San Francisco from sertaiu penalties (amounting to $83,UUU) incurred in the construction of the Charleston.
