Contrary to general expectation, Speaker Heed succumbed to tho pressure that was broii'lit to hear on him, and allowed Genera Henderson to call up the river and "arbor bill this afu-niooii. The debate on the bill this afternoon was on the general features of t hi measure most tho time being consumed by General Catchings, of Mississippi, who made au exhaustive statement of the great engineer- in" problem ol the age: How to conline the river within its banks. He opposed the outlet svstem as impracticable and vision- ary the remedy ot doctrinaires and tliwrst-s The outlet system would in- evitably lead to a retardation of the current, and be a consequent precipitation of sediment by natural laws, and would m no wise lower the level of the current a few miles above and below the outlet.

This society, though only a year oM, numbers among its members some ot the loading men of the country, and is growing rapidly. The first ami mil congress of the society was held at Columbia, Tenn., last May, and was the result of a feeling which has long existed among the Scotch-Irish .race m America for a permanent organization. The pages of American history are covered with the names and achievements of the race, and no people have more closely identified them- selves and their principles with American institutions than they. The second annual conference, to be held here during the latter part of May, will be a meeting of great interest. AH the Scotcn- trish of America are cordially invited to be present. Among the orators who will address the congress on topics of interest to the race will be Governor James K. Campbell, of Ohio; James G. Blame, Dr. John Hall, of New York Hon. John Dalzell, of Pennsylvania, and many other noted men. The roads have generally agreed to give half fare trip tickets to the congress, and all the Scotch-Irish peo- ple of America are inost earnestly invited to come. The committee in charge have made arrangements to accommodate a large crowd, and it is expected that the meeting will com- .prise a thorough representation of the race from all over the country. THE TEIIROB OF CEDAK KEYS. The Search for the Fugitive Mayor Aban- doned. JACKSONVILLE, Fin., May 22. A Cedar Keys special to the Times-Union says: "The expedition of the cutter Mcl-anp up the Suwaneo river in search ot the missing Mayor Cottroll was abandoned at a late hour hist night. Captain Smith, in an interview today, said that from his observation the condition of affairs in this town had not been exagger- ated in the newspaper reports. It is even worse than has been represented, said he, and reveals a strange phase of life never before encountered. At a meeting of the city council tonight, James Cottroll, brother of the fugitive mayor, announced the latter would never return to Cedar Keys, aurt that the council might, therefore, declare the ottice vacant and ordera new election. The action of the council has not been made pub- li -were appointed oil the ttppro- pfiatfoa--bili.

The currency was insufficient in volume to maintain prices and was irrc-.ponsive. to the laws of trade. It was congested in the treasury. A hundred millions of it was held another portion of it.tbat was (like itseW) legal tender, while thirty million of it was lent oat to bankers, without interest. Taxation was an than use- bringing a surplus into the treas- ury and stimulating extravagance togetM out. The public debt had been put m traeh an anomalous relations to the laws that Uis gov eminent appeared on both sides of counter in obviously incompatible and .contra dictory relations. On one side of the the government boosted up the price of'bonds far beyond their par value. On the it paid them before maturity, at exorbitant rates. Whenever before, he asked, the general confer- ence of the -Methodist church, this morning, the of: the committee on missions was .taken up again, and a long debate ensued on the paragraph, in it recommending the appoint- ment of fliree'secretaries of missions. There is but oiie now employed. There was a good deal of opposition to this.andan effort was made to compromise on two, but the recommenda- tions of the report were finally carried and the missions will have three secretaries hereafter. The conference then received Kev. John Sbafer, of Kansas City, who came on a frater- mission. He gave a review of the history of African church in this sug- gested that missionaries who would accomplish the greater good in Africa were negroes, and asked the aid and support of the Methodist church to send men to the Dark Continent to work for the cause of Christ. NOT NEED A BOND. A proposition to require the treasurer of the board of missions to give bond "was promptly, if not indignantly, opposed arid defeated by a large majority. A resolution was -offered by Dr. Peterson, officiallv approving the Payne and lusti- and appointing a com- missioner who should devote his time to raising money for their support.

ASHINGTON, May Dunnoll, of lic, and the citizens are awaiting it with deep interest. Captain Smith and Collector Pink- erton have made elaborate reports of the affair to the treasury department at Washington.

Conferences were ordered on the armyappro- priatioii bill and the military academy appro- priation bill. T On motion of Mr. Henderson, of Iowa (from the committee on a bill was passed appropriating SilO.OOO to supply the de- licieMy in the appropriation for public print- ing and binding. The house then went into committee of the whole (Mr. Barrows, of the chair) on the river and harbor bill.. Mr Henderson, of Illinois', chairman of the on rivers and harbors, explained the iirovisions of the bill, stating that they ap- propriated based upon eitimates Ho believed that there was 110 money that went out of the treasury that was so much in the interest of the people of the country as the money ex- pended in the improvement of rivers and liar- tors. Every dollar expended in re- movin" obstructions in the rivers and impediments in harbors was expended in behalf of the people, and if this government was constituted for any wise pur- pose whatever, it was constitxited for the pur- pose of looking to the interests of the people. 1 Mr Blanchard, ot Louisiana, spoke in favor the principles of the river and liarbor bill, contending that they did more to solve the problem of cheap transportation than all the interstate com- merce bills that could be passed. He argued that the time had come whentlie general gov- ernment should take entire charge ol the Mis- sissippi river, and provide at once au adequate system of levees. 'llr. Catchings, of Mississippi, made a com- prehensive and exhaustive explanation of the plans by which the government was under- taking the improvement of the Mississippi Wheeler, ot Alabama, described the Improvement of the Tennessee riyer, and A Judge Says tho I-ate Bcoiaion Not Give tbe Klslit to Keep Open Plates. la., May Hiudman, of the District court, in his charge to the grand jury at the opening of corirt yes- terday took the ground that, notwith- standing tlie late decision of the United State supreme court, 110 person thas a right; in this state to keep a place for the sale of intoxicating liquors of any kind, either in original packages or otherwise, and that it was the sworn duty of-the jurors to report to the 'court by indictment any person charged with the keeping of any such place without regard as to where sucli liquors came from. He main- tained that interstate commerce has nothing -to do with the question, and that the keeping of a place for the sale of liquors is a nuisance, no matter how they are dealt out. The Sun's Cotton Review. :NEW YORK, May opened a little depressed. Liverpool reacted some- what, a3 it was expected it would, and receipts at Bombay showed great excess over last vear. Crop accounts were quite good. A let- ter 1'rom Georgia says land tbat was planted to water-melons is now growing cotton. The cheap- ness with which corn may now be laid down in the southern markets from the west is another stimulant to the growth of cotton. But Liverpool recovered a portion of its early decline, and our market advanced, especially for August. The close, however, was dull and somewhat irregular. The movement of crops appears to be considerably in excess of last year, but this is a matter that now receives little-consideration. Cotton on spot was moderately active for home consumption. A Gigantic Railroad Scheme. SAN ANTONIO, Texas, May One of the most gigantic railroad projects of this of progress is the building of a through, line from the United States to South America. Mr. S. H. Mallory, of the Fitz- Texas and Mallory Construction com- pany, of St. Louis, is here. Ho is vice-presi- dent and general manager of the Corpus Christi and South American Railway com- pany. He states that the proposed road will be built at once, and that the Mexican govern- ment has just granted a subsidy of SW.OOO per mile from Matamoros to the Guatamala line. Upon the completion of the survey, track- laying will begin._______ gold of Europe." THE DIFFERENT SYSTEMS. Mr. Daniel said the tax system was built on non-intercourse, and was called the Ameri- can system. How was it that an American system was demanded for taxes and a British system for currency? If a citizen ol the United States were not allowed to. trade more freely and to foreign market, why would stimulate the home mar- kef So Ion" as tho monometallist could keep from answering that question, or could so befog it as to keep tho people from answei- it for themselves, the jumble would be continued and would be played by the oiiometallists with gold ._ jackstraws. countries, ma unau t heard, and, with one voice tfce nations had an- swered that to gold and silver belonged the attribute of money. Mr Daniel spoke for three honrs, partly from full notes and partly extempore. He was listened to with closest attention and interest bya pretty full attendance of senators. As he took his seat he was applauded Irom me galleries. NAVAL APFKOFKIATION BIM.. The silver bill was laid aside without any action, and the naval appropriation bill was taken up. AH formal and minor amendments reported by the committee having been agreed to, the amendment was taken up which strikes out of the bill au appropriation of for repairs to the dry dock at Boston navy-yard.

PRESBYTERIAN FOREIGN MISSIONS. r Recommendations of tlie Committee In Its Other Business. ASHEVII.LE, N. G., May In. the Presby- terian general assembly todayf the report of the committee on foreign missions was read by Kev. C. Hemphill, chairman, and was con- sidered by sections. The first section pro- posed to transfer the minister's fund from the Clergy's Friendly society to the Presbyterian Ministers' fund of Philadelphia. Adopted.

The resolution was tabled. The report of the committee on societies was submitted, as was the report of the' committee on the revised directory of worship. The latter advised that no change be made. Adopted The report of the committee on colored evangelical work recommended the appoint- ment of a field secretary. Adopted. Alabama Episcopalians.

THE WOKKIKCMEK Seventeen Assemblies of Knlglits of Labor Mn MeetbiK. BstrNSWTCK, Ga., May To- night has been a memorable one with the labor organizations of Brunswick. Other cities have had demonstrations, but it is safe to say no place the size of Brunswick ever celebrated in such a manner. At 7 o clock seventeen assemblies, twelve strong, all organized under the seal of the Kuiglits of Labor, formed in line on G street, and, headed bv the Atlantic band, proceeded down New- castle, up Monk to L'Ariosa opera-house, where speeches were to be made by Brunswick orators on tlie nine-hour question, the lem law and convict lease system. Standing room was in demand. The crowds could not get admittance. On the stage were Editors manan; raged to take part in the 'k Children's Day exorcise on the first Sunday in June and that the assembly cordially commend the officers and members of the executive committee for their zeal and energy. The report of the committee was then adopted as a whole. Rev. Mr. Stevens spoke on the foreign missions, and was followed by Rev. C. R. Hemphill, Rev. J. W. Allen and Dr, AV. T. Thompson. Colonel J.

Mr. Lathem has known of the presence of this ore for some months, but did not know the character of it. The metal smelted from this ore is pronounced by experts not to be zinc or aluminum, but is a white metal hav- ing the appearance of tin; and Mr. Thrasher saya bo has had it as- sayed by competent chemists who pronoanea it tin. assaying 7.4U per cent.
