Washington, May 10.—There aró good reasons for stating that tho president hi changed his view regarding tho bill reiatiug to tbo use of the military at the polls and tho probabilitiei are now strong that he wilt t«turQ it with another veto moiságe. SZKATl PBOCOBDINOl, Washington, May 10.—In the sonate 'Mi Eaton introduced by request a bill reUting to telegraph oommnnieatioa between tbo Uuited States and foreien countries. lie ferred to the committee on foreign relations. Tho seuato proceodod to the oonaideratic of tho legislative, eiocutlvo and Judicial ap-propriatiou bill, which was substantially tho same as that agreed to by the committee of conference at a former session with few exceptions. Mr. Edmunds inquired whether what i; called political legislation is the same as that proposed last year, or did It differ by en. largement or by diminution. Mr. Beck replied that ho was not prepared to answer as he had not compared tho two propositions. A message was reooivod from the bouse announcing that the speaker had signed Uia enrolled bill to prohibit military intpifateiua at elections and retumina the bill for th* signature of the présidant nm tàm. iug signed the same, tho president. The senate proceeded to act on the amend mont to pending bill and agreed to those restoring tho compensation of the tho son, ato's officers, clew and other employeen, wbioh the bouae had reduced. Senator Beck moved that a reading of t bill bo dispensed with in order to afford Mr. Hill, of Georgia, an opportunity to address the senate as ho intended to leave tho city and may not return before the end of thi present session. Mr. Hill proceeded tospoak with reference to that part of the bill propoilng loeislation with regard to the supervisora of elections, etc. He asked why the disousaion had been thrust on the country. The Isolation pro posed being very simple, nothing but a re. peal of the soma lawi enaeted aurldg and sinoo tho late war. Ho had watched tho dis-lussion in order to amve.Bt th« motiva which prompted it, and Was now saftifled that a party in thU country hi^ entered upon a well or rathet ill oonaidaied batdatermined purpose of reopening the sectional agitation which so long disturbed the people ;^th a view of consolidating one section of the country against the other (or the benefit of a party without reference to the publie good. Ho referred to the recent speooh of Onnkling as being hi that direction, and alindad to Edmunds' spesoh of ywtardájr as taUng tho position that the little bill pmUbittñgmili-tary interference at elections would have the effect to change and modify all tho laws to which the senator from Vermont The senator moat hava known that thé would not afteot in any „ _______ previous to 18GS. If the majority In ijon^ from this time forward say that tho army and navy shall not interfere with elections, tliey but re-onaot what tho enstom, practico and law were before the not of 18ür.. Tho ipoech of the aenator from Vermont ought to be studied by all, as It showed the great question of difforenoo between tho two great partiea now straggling for mastery and the assumption that there could bo no proteotion to the country save tho military. If this ahonld be, nnfortunateln ever believed by the ooualty the ' rej ' ' matlon for a peace conference, and how he had hoped for its sucooss. Seven slates had thon gone out, and therefore could not participate In suoli a oonvention, but they watched every movement with interest. There were men who mode tho charges infidelity against tho southern people and went to W^hlngton to defeat thi purposes thhi he read tha Ident pio t«m, 'he ■ h«v, it will now be taken to WAsnratiTOM, July 11, 1801. Dear Oovemor:—Qovemor Bingham a myself telegraphed (o yon on Saturday the request of Massachusetts and Now Vo to send a delegation to tbo peace or com promise congress. They admit that wore wrong, and that no ropnbl: ita^ should have sent delegates,but they are ' I and cannot got away. Ohio, Indiana Bhode Island are coming in and there mger of Illinois and now they beg us fo Ood's sake to come and rescue and save th republican party from rupture. I hope they will send stiff-backed men or noni Tho whol* tUag wai got up against i dgment and will end in thin smoke. ,ipo as a matter of courtesy to our erring brethren that you will send tho delegates. Truly yonr friend, /. CiuNnLSn. To his eicollenoy, Austin Blair, xo tliis letter was added a postscript say "Northern people think that n fight would bo awful, but without a littio blood letting tho union will not, in niy estimation, bo worth a rush. Southern representatives mi^ not bo trusted," The south sought to vCTt war while tho north tried to bring it on Ho, Hill, knew tho repubiicans claimed to have saved the union but if there had been no republican party the union would not ha' been in ponl. Tboro would have been i secession, no returning boards, and no oloc-toral commissions. At tho conclusion of Mr, Hill's speech M: Chandler eiplainod tho circumstances undi which the letter was written and spoko of the incidents which took place previous t( tho rebellion and conclnde<l by saying: "You ore to-day as you wore thon, determined to cither rule or ruin this government and you con't do it." MOOSE rHOCEEDINas, ; Washington, May 10,—In tho house a bill was reported relating to widows of pension ors ot tho wor of 1812 so as to give the pen slous to women who aro a sooond time wid-dows. Opposition was made to the bill as being an entire change of the ponsion laws and on motion of Mr. Oartield it was referred to tho pension committ' The bill prohibiting tho pfeseneo of the military at pkees of eleotions was signed by the speaker and sent to tho senate for tb signaturo of tho president pro torn of thi senate.

TOE snssissim IlIPItOVBMEKT QUESTION Washington May 10.—House committoo in lovoes and iniprovenionts of tho Mis-issippi river held a meeting to-day. Thi meaeuce under consideration was that in troduced ou the fith inst, by Mr. Gibson, of Louisiana, creatine a commission to con list of five members, to be known as the Ulsslsslpnl river improvement commission. Tho third section of tho bill, requiring thi immission to report in full to conj^ess thi amount of hind that could bo reclaimed by tho construction of such works as they moy doom necessary, that would pormanontiy prevent the overllow of such land as is now subject thereto along tho route of said river, caused objection ond a question arose as to the objects of this and all measures be ioro tho committee which propose tho im-provoment of tho river and rechimation of l^uvial landi as co-equal objects to be ob-fitted. Tha republican members of the committee asserted their opposition to con, sideration of any provision eicepting that which may rofor directly to tbo subject of oving tho navigation of the river. They oontondod that reclamation of alluvial lands >s not only Impolitic but improper to be iDsidoredby congress. In view of this venilty of opinion, tho leading democratic tiiibers ot the committee will endeavor to frame o bill which will tend to harmonize and meet tho approval of tho entire com mittco. Gibson introduced in tho house previous to adjournment to-day a materially niodifled proposition, which will bo printed and referred to tlie committoo for action. "S THE n, B. TIMBEH LAND lil'ESTION.

Attention is being drawn to tho probable effects ot a oontlnuoneo of tho cold northerly winds upon tho agricultural prospects which are already sufilcicutly unfavor-ible. Unless a change ooouYs soon in the temperature there can be littio or no fruit and there may probably bo o serious dofi-eicncy in tho cereal crops, which moans larger payments than usual to foreign growers and eventually deoror monoy.

(riiiliiili'Ii.Iila From oil accounts pleuro pneumonia >ng cattle out in the neighborhood of Darby, as mentioned in yesteiday's Times, is not general, Tho coses examined by Drs " jhenor ond Gadsden were In Upper Darby. Lower Darby no casesoro known. As to the generally accoptod theory thot cattle oneo infccted will dio in nino coses out of ton farmers who hovo hod exporionco with thi " leaso tell a different story. Bethel M. Custor, on extensive doirymon near Glenoiden, says that in IS.',«, when hi occupied tho Ponncoyd form, in Lower " irion, pleuro-pneumonio broke out omong cattle, the herd numbering obout seventy-fivo oltogotbor. Tho disease modo its oppeorauco iu August. Ho hod bought two cows at the old drove yord in this city ond driven them lUt to bis farm, both of which, within two loks after tho purchase, wore attacked with pieuro-pnoumonla. From them about ■■ rty others wore infected, obout half of which died. The other holt recovered and ihowed no trace of tho disease ofterword. Among tbo ones that got over It somo had so low with the disease that everybody who sow them thought they would dio. A poculior cose wos that of a two-ysar-olil leifer. Mr. CluBtetsays that it was so low ith the disease that ho made no attempt to doctor it, Ihlnldng it would dio onyhow. it tho animal reeovored, and, though it never became a profit to the dairy, it grow fat thot two years kter it was killed to supply tho fomily with beef. An examination otter death showed the animal's loft lung curled up out of shope, resembling more a cow's heart than a lung, and com plelely marblolzed. The other lung was sound and healtby.
