A there in no Prole ability now of the naval appropriation Bill with or without the provision for the construction of new cruisers becoming a Law anti after the my of january. The Senate in refusing to yield to the House expected to hold the latter body in session during the holidays but in this signally failed. Although the House will meet again on wed lies tiny no business will be transacted and another adjournment for three Days will take place unless the Senate concludes to let the naval Bill go and pans an adjournment Resolution. At this hour this does not teem at All probates although Republican sans tors recognize the impossibility of accomplishing anything until after new years Day. Under the influence of the move made by Tho Bouse committee on labor in opposition to the rumoured nomination of John Fohren Bach of Cincinnati several remonstrance have come Here from labor organization against irs confirmation. The remonstrances would Asem to be decidedly premature in View of the fact that no nomination for the place Baa been sent to the Senate thus far during the present session. The friends of the mexican pension Bill who ars members of the Bouse Hope to have it called up a soon As the Reagan interstate Commerce Bill is out of the Way. It is confidently predicted that there will be some acrimonious debate on the subject a result the democratic leaders would gladly Avert could they see their Way Clear to do so. The debate on tile color line question the Othar Day was a result they had not foreseen The Reagan Biti would never have been Given a hearing but they want to avoid a repetition of such discussion. Prominent democrats Are far from being satisfied at the Prospect that senator Bayard May become a member of or. Cleveland a Cabinet. He is one of the Low men on the democratic Side of the Senate chamber who would be Able to effectually Champion the Caus it of the administration should the minority find themselves face to face with the Republican majority in a party struggle. And to thus remove him from the Senate they claim would seriously weaken the administration Side of every question that came in Issue. On this ground it was urged be should be allowed to remain in his present the Senate. W Ash i Noto Dix 28�?the amate in a listless manner took up Bills on the private Calendar. After an hour thus spent or. Hale opened up out of the deadlock on the naval appropriation Bill by reporting As a substitute for the House Bill sent to Tbs Senate on saturday making appropriation for the Navy for 31 Days. The regular appropriation Bill for the balance of the fiscal year precisely As the House sent that Bill to Senate at the last session with All the Senate amendments As to new cruisers ironclad artillery and everything else stricken off. He gave notice that he should Call up this Bill for action to Morrow. At i is the Senate went into executive session and after confirming a number of unimportant dominations at 2 05, adjourned till to Morrow. A Brilliant season at the White House. Washington dec. 82.�?the Winters fee titties at the White houss will begin with the new years reception and will equal in brilliance the series of receptions and dinners that extended through last Winter. Mrs. Mcelroye a arrival at the executive mansion is always awaited before perfecting the arrangements for the season but it has already been decided to adhere to the dates and the general plan of last year.

Albany dec. 22.�?the evening journal prints the following letter from William of Evart to senator James Arkell a in response to Many inquiries and requests made to me from All parts of the state i take the Liberty in this form of making Public any readiness and desire to be considered among the candidates for Alec Hon by the legislature As a senator from the state. In asking the favor and support of Republican senators and assemblymen it r this distinguished and responsible representation of this great state in the Senate of the United states i have no occasion to qualify or restate tile principle of the Republican parly or my own Hearty acceptance and a doubt my maintenance of those principles. Toe Republican party in its declaration of its opinions and its purposes has never used language obscure Uncertain or framed in double sense. In the last Appeal of the great political parties to the popular stiff age especially the political sentiments and Cardinal objects of the Republican party have been presented to the country without concealment or dissimulation. In this last As in every earlier struggle to maintain the supremacy of the Republican policy in the government of the country i have Given every Aid in my Power to the support of the policy the doctrines and the candidates of the Republican party. A the general Sensa of the republicans of this state looks upon the senator ship now open to election As of unusual importance. I hey regard this a important to the great political and material interests of the state. They regard it of important to the whole body and array of the republicans of the country. In the place and share that the a Fella or of this state shall take and main Tain in the increasing warfare with the democratic party in which every Republican is anti stat and which Mill be persisted in until Republican policy and Republican statesmen shall gain authority in Congress and tile presidency in this critical juncture in the affairs of the country and in the interests of the Republican party in the National government which i deem in separable from that welfare. I have no doubt the legislature will treat Tho duty before them with with an entire Devotion to the highest and Best interests involved in the election of the senator and i submit to their judgment the question whether these interests can be better served by myself or by another.
