Finally the discussion <>f the amendment came to an end ami on t he usual party vote it was rejected. An amendment offered by Vance to reduce the duty on red lead from three cents to two cents per pound met the same fate. The next paragraph, making white lead three cents per pound was amended by adding tho words “and white paint containing lead.'’ Paragraph Ch was amended by making it read “caustic or hydrate of potash retim'd in sticks or rolls, one cent per pound,"' instead of I J cents. F Carbonate and sulphate of potash aud wonges were placed on the free list. The doty on sulphate of soda was banged from one-tenth of a cent per mid to twenty per cent ad valorem. Finally schedule I* was reached, which refers to earths, earthenware, and glassware. Mr. McPherson's motion to reduce the duty on tire brick failed to carry. Mr. Plumb voted with the democrats I the first break in the solid party vote. [plumb having thus started in bis assertion of independence of party allegiance far as the tariff bill is concerned bogan to take McPherson's place in offering amendments. His first two amendments were to reduce the rates of duty 'in enamelled tiles and hydraulic cement, ftor discussion they were voted down the republican majority — the lemoerats. of course, voting for them. n the hydraulic cement amendment addock joined Plumb in voting with he democrats. McPherson moved to e the duty on common brown enware from 25 to ffo per cent ad alorem. Rejected—yeas ffl, nays ffo, addock voted with the democrats, lunib did not vote'. The next question was on paragraph IOO, relating to china, porcelain and crockery ware, the finance committee ^recommending a reduction of rates in the house hill from (hi to 55 per cent on decorated articles and from 55 to 50 per lent on plain whit** and underrated ware. WO members of the finance committee, [Sherman and Hiscock. expressed their pposition to the senate amendments. Mr. Allison supported them. Mr. Vest moved to make the rate 45 ml 40 per cent respectively. Then Plumb took a prominent part in the discussion against the exhorbitant demands of high protection. The American people were entitled to have cheap goods if competition could bring that about.

I.—The interstate commerce commission has issued and will send out to-morrow an order, to take effect September first, for a reduction of rates on food products based on the report sent to the senate June 7. The order is accompanied by a report; also the oponion of tho commissioner overruling the protests and motions of the roads to dismiss the matter for want of jurisdiction. This opinion reviews the powers and duties of the commission fn the matter of beginning and conducting investigations, and the commission holds its proceedings were legally sufficient and that, the reductions were necessary to make the rates reasonable. The reductions made apply only to corn, oats, wheat and Hour carried from Iowa, Missouri, Kansas and Nebraska to Chicago, St. Louis and the Mississippi river. The reduced rates from the Missouri river to Chicago on corn and oats are IT cents: wheat and flour, ffO cents. From Kansas and Nebraska points the corn rates are is to ffff, cents, and wheat ffl to 27 cents. Tho reductions extend two hundred miles in Nebraska and two hundred and fifty miles in Kansas, from the Missouri river. Where the rates are fractional the roads may charge even cents, which considerably mollifies the reductions. No reduction is required which will leave the roads loss than six and one-half mills per ton per mile for hauls not longer than five hundred miles nor less than six mills for any distance. As to the rates east of the Mississippi river, the commission says: “The rates from Chicago,-St. Louis and the Mississippi river now charged on corn, oats, wheat and flour to the eastern seaboard are not found to bo excessive. The charges on the other principal food products between the Mississippi river and the seaboard are involved in tin pending complaints and, therefore, no order a* to these rates and charges will be now issued."’ GENERAL WASHINGTON NEWS.

I.—Yesterday was devoted to rest and recreation, on account of the change of Field Day from Thursday to Saturday. All day long campers xvould congratulate themselves on the possession of hammocks, palm leaf fans and easy rocking chairs, anil the possession of the time to use them, without the feeling that they were missing some good lecture or entertainment at the tabernacle. Toward evening the chairs and hammocks were decried and the river was dotted with roxv floats and the air melodious with the voices of excursioners. But at eight all boats had pulled in and all attention was centered in tile program in the tabernacle. Miss Minnie Cady, of Des Moines, gave an evening's entertainment which delighted every one. lier selections were, one and all, good—but one ibove tho rest demands special mention, Wild Zingerella,’’ or “The Gypsy Flower Girl of France.” The program losed xvith club swinging. Miss Cady is slender little lady aud everyone was all the more pleased with lier difficult performance. The music was furnished by Miss Evans and an orchestra which had arrived a trifle too early for G. A. Ii. day. Battle Cry of Freedom,” “Glory Hallelujah,” and some other national songs were sung with the chorus ringing out grandly from the large audience assembled. The people seemed delighted to hear their own voices and heartily encored all numbers in which “The audience were requested to join in the horns.” Tho glorious moonlight did its best to coax every one to take a ramble or a quiet chat but the prospective festivities of the coming day conquered and at ten the grounds were quiet and silence reigned supreme. G. A. IC. DAV. The Grand Army boys took possession of the park to-day and turned it into a regular army camp. The crowds of old soldiers and their wives and friends began to swarm into the grounds at an early hour, and before noon an immense throng had congregated on the top of the hill and was clamoring for food, of course, the veterans came down for a good old rousing camp-fire and general good time, and they succeeded xve Though th<‘ croxvd was not so large a-last year at this time, owing, probably, to the sultry weather and tin added fact that Hie railrood rate xvore not as loxv as then, still no one could complain of the attendance. There must have been three or four thousand people all told and during the religion: (?) services in the tabernacle that building was literally jammed. Two steamboat excursions from Keokuk, beside land excursions from Centerville, Ft. Madison and Burlington contributed to the “make-up” of the crowd. Dr. Wayman, of Hot Springs, delivered the address of welcome to the oil soldiers in the morning, and following him Dr. llagerty, of St. Louis, department chaplain of Missouri, treated of the life of the soldier from tho raw recruit to the well-drilled private and then to the xvar-scarred veteran, touching upon the many traits and peculiarities that characterize the life of the volunteer soldier. Lot Abraham and Williford, those oldtimers who have bobbed up at every campfire in eastern Iowa since Lee surrendered and roused the enthusiasm of all the “boys” bv their stirring songs and still more stirring antics and caperwort' there with all their warpaint on. They sang in their good old style. “Touch the Elbow” and “Happy Land of Canari” and others After dinner tin? “boys” got together again and had another love-feast and experience-meeting; Major Cramer of Memphis. Mo., and Comrade l’rof. Pierce, of Keokuk, made speeches, and George Robertson, of Keokuk, introduced some haphazard recollections of army life which were well received. Prof. ifierce gave a graphic account of his ox-pcriences and services in the army as lie was a captive and inmate of Libby Prison at the tender af of fifteen, this was very interesting—e penally his account of the bill of faro of that famous hostelry. After all had had their say and all the songs had been sung and the poems read, the hattailion formed for dress parade, like the F rench Third Estate, on the tennis court. The boys didn’t all stand as straight perhaps as they used to thirty years ago, or keep as perfect an alignment, hut the spirit of the    men of    ’61    xvas there    still, and, though some    of    them    tottered a littli and leaned heavily on their “guns' for    support,    yet    this    was    no muster of raw recruits. Every one of them had    been under    fire;    had    stood in fierce conflict when- bullets fell Iik« molten hail, and flinched not; had seen the ground strewn xvith the bodies of their comrades and messmates, and yet knowing that their safely and lives hum on the chance of tho moment, had marched in unwavering line to the very cannon’s mouth, belching tire and lead and death, and yet showed no fear. At the conclusion of the dress parade a spy which had been caught prowling around the camp was court-martialed and shot. This part of the program xvas realistic in the extreme. His spy-ship “acknowledged the corn” and was led like a lamb to the slaughter. His coffin w as brought out and he was placed carefully on the edge of the lid so that he xvould fall in as soon as the shooting-match came off. Before the final command to fire was given tile culprit was given a chance to explain the situation, which he did in a glowing address to his comrades, iii which he asserted that he xvas willing to die for his country, etc., etc. At the conclusion of His harangue, the squad of six soldiers who had been chosen to do flu' deed loaded their old flint-locks and, aiming at an imaginery spy about sixty digress sou-sou-west by north of the victim, let go the triggers and down he dropped into the box like a dead hog. The pall-bearers rushed up and, can fully adjusting the lid so that the dead man xvould n’t miss all the circus in his seclusion, hoisted tin1 coffin onto their shoulders and started on the dead run for the impromptu hearse at the outskirts of tho throng. It was the original intention to haul him out behind the lodging house and resurrect him. but the small boys gathered so thick around that it was impossible to let him out without letting the cat out also, so the hearse jogged out to a hay stack about txvo miles away and dumped him out. The numerous small boys who had hitherto been in doubt as to the genuineness of the whole business were now relieved and were assured that ho wasn't dead at all—some of them who had chased the cortege the whole distance expressed themselves as disgusted in the extreme. After supper the “vets” gathered around the camp-fire and swapped lies, and are engaged in that pleasant occupation at this writing. Burch were called in and have been working hard to save the live* of trie poisoned ones and think they will be successful except in the case of Mrs. Elias Brent, who is an invalid, arid they fear that she has not strength enough to recover. Mr. Baul Brent was taken much worse after dinner to-day and ha> been vomiting blood, and fears are entertained that he may not. recover. -I WISH IT WERE OVER!” Springfield, III., Aug. I.—In i he house this morning a joint resolution providing for the adjournment, of the two houses on this day was presented and referred to a special committee. After the adoption of resolutions of respect to the memory of deceased members of former general assemblies the world's fair bill, together with the house amendment, xv;i' read a third time and passed by a vote of 132 yeas to Bl nays. While the house was waiting for the conference committee to report a resolution was introduced by Locke anour, (dem.) extending the thanks of the members, irrespective of party, to Speaker Cochran for the ju*t arid impartial manner in which he has presided. This was adopted by acclamation and the speaker made a brief speech of thanks. In the afternoon the report of the joint ■onference committee was received, stating that an agreement had been arrived at by which the eight hour -ection was stricken from the bill and an amendment made to the submerged land clause providing that the made land after the fair whenever diverted to any other use than that of a publir park shall revert to the state of Illinois. The comferenee also agreed to the senate joint resolution re-eommending to the world's fair directory the enforcement of tile eight hour principle and that rn* aliens he ernuloyed. This resolution was adopted bv a-elama-tion. The report of tile conference eommit tee was then adopted 125 to I*;, but the [mint, of order was made that the amendment must be printed before finally adopted. The committee which had waited upon the governor stated he had no further communication to make to the general assembly. A message from the senate was n -•ived stating tha’ body had concurred in the re port of tin- conference committee and adopted the eight-hour resolu-and alien labor principles.

The announcement of the house that it had passed the world's fair Dill xvi til amendments was make. The first three amendments xvere concurred in. The fourth amendment, providing for the eignt hour day on all xvork iu connection with the exposition, xx.i' rejected. The following amendment was also non-eoneurrod in:    “And any submerged lands which may be tilled under the provision hereof, shall accrue to the city of Chicago to be forever maintained as a public park.” The iion.se refused to recede from its eight hour section and submerged land amendment to the world ' fair bill and the subject was referred to a joint conference committee. The discussion on tic * -lit hour section xvas quite lengthy. Berry. Chaplain. Herrick. Matthew* anil other* opposed it and Burke favored it. Matthew* in his remark* said, ”If it wa* adopted the directors of the fair would not feel obliged to pay any attention to it. because they knew the law L un' "ii'titu-tional."
