THE CREAT RAILROAD WAR. The New York Central Gradually Raising the Blockade. A large number of strikers visited the yards to day but they did no violence to property. They said they would let the mails through providing there were no passenger coaches attached. He Retires Hie Debate to be Lhuited-Tlie House—'The Anti-Lottery Mail Bill—Tile Census—General Washington News. Washington, August ll.—In the senate, after routine business the tariff bill was taken up, the pending question being Plumb's amendment to reduce the additional duty on iron orated hoops cut lo lengths for baling purposes from 2-10 to 1-10 cent per pound. The amendment wa* rejected, three republicans, Ingalls. Paddock, and Qlumb, voting in the affirmative. Mr. McPherson moved to amend the paragraph by making the duty on Iron or steel hoops fifty per cent advalorem instead of one cent, I 1-10 cents and 13-10 cents per pound. Mr. Sherman spoke of the little progress that was being made with tile bill. Nearlv three weeks he said had been spent upon it and not one-fifth of it had been disposed of. Unless the senators on the oilier side1 be satisfied with one vote upon the question and would go right along, tile senate would have to continue in perpetnai session. He did not wish to see any change in the rules of the senate if it could be avoided. If the oilier side would forego tbe needless repetition of amendments and of yea and nay votes, the senators might soon see daylight and be able to go to their respective homes. The bill had passed the house and had beeu considered by the committee of the senate. Its general outline being on the scale of a protective tariff—even of high protective tariff—the republican senators did not deny that it was a tariff that would protect American industries and buildup nearly all the industries that could be employed in this country. It. was a pretty high protective tariff, and there were some points in it which he would be willing to yield. Still it had been reduced in several important particulars below tho bill passed by the senate two years ago. It seemed tile senate ought to make more progress with the bill. Mr. Vest said thut the senator from Ohio stated that tie* bill was acceptable to his side of the chamber. The record did not show tins to be the fact. On the other hand the most aggressive attacks made upon tin* bill had come from that side of the chamber aud from the slate that gave the largest majority for the republican party in rite late election. The record would show that a proportionately larger number of democratic senators responded every time the roll had been called.: lie gave notice that cadi item in tho bill will be discussed if necessary unless it was prevented by force applied iii some sort of fashion. Tile discussion having turned on the depreciation of farming property a statement was read by Vest as to such depreciation in some of the best farming counties in Pennsylvania. and Cameron remarked that, while the statement vias correct, the tariff was not in his opinion the cause of it. Its cause was the demonetization of silver in 1*73. Ever since that aet the price of land and farm products had decreased. I Since the passage ut the silver bill prices ! had risen some twenty per cent. Mr. Teller -aid that as to the question I to the haste in passing the bill, he was I not dispcsee to deny its opponents a fair ' and free discussion. Ile was willing to j stay and discuss the tariff question, or ; allow it to b" discussed, because lie believed tin* American people wanted to I know whether the bill was a proper re- j vision cd the tariff. Finally tie vote was reached on Mc- j Plierson's amendment and it was re- I jected without division. ■TS THE “FORCE BILL.” Mr. George W. Cable Favor, it* Passage by Congress. Northampton, Mass., Aug. ll.—Mr. jim go VY. Cable, the noted southern ^ has been asked for his opinion on f,r Jorce b! ant* sa>’s in reply: I favor Mr. Lodge's federal election bill. It will be a “force bill” in the south on j to electoral systems confessedly designed and operated to outwit the weakest and most defenseless classes of lawful voters, the destitute thousands who eau least afford to lose the protection of the ballot. Hie nation has waited for some sign of the reform of these things for fourteen years iii vain. These systems have year by year fortified themselves stronger and stronger in state constitutions and statutes, and so far from passing away, are receiving more to-day than ever before the ope ii approval and support of the party now in power throughout the southern states. I do not belong to the party supporting this bill, but. I find no reasonable ground to suppose that that party will commit such a self-ruinous blunder as to bring back tile abuses of the reconstruction era. There are thousands of southern white men who, though loath to commend the measure, are nevertheless willing to see it tried, and would be glad of its success. I hope the bill will pass.” BRECKENRIDGE’S TENURE. It Depends Upon How Well the Democrats In the House Behave. Indianapolis. Ind., Aug. ll.—A special to tbe Journal from Washington says: Besides the orders coining to them from the senate side that appropriation bills must be delayed as much as possible. the democrats in the bouse are now actuated by another motive for their filibustering. Now that the report on the Breckinridge ease has been made, and Mr. Breckinridge ean therefore be unseated on almost any day, the democrats are using every parliamentary device possible to secure a delay On Friday they had no less than twelve roll-calls, besides calls of the house, and to-day they kept up the roll-rolis for the same reason. Til is line of action is perfectly recognized by the republicans, and they will checkmate it as soon as that can be done effectually. It will hardly be possible to call any election case next week because, because it is not probable that there will be a republican majority in the house pending the Grand Army encampment at. Boston, but as soon as the Grand Army demonstration is over the election committee will get seriously to work. At present their intention is to call up the eases in the regular order of their presentation to the house, which may make the Breckinridge cast* the third or fourth one to be called, but it is stated by the chairman of the elections committee that if the democrats persist in their present spirit of obstruction, merely for the sake of staving off the Breckinridge case, he will make use of the right of his committee, and call tip the Breckinridge ♦•ase out of the regular order, aud unseat Mr. Breckinridge before anything el.-e is done. So. Mr. Breckinridge’s tenure in the house will hereafter depend entirely on the conduct of his associates.

It is to the effect that during the considera- j state. lion of the tariff bill no senator shall i speak more than once and not longer j than five minutes on or iii respect of any ope item or any one amendment without leave of tile senate. Such leave to be granted or denied without debate and without any other motion or amendment except such a*- relates to procuring a Quorum until the bill "ball have been gone through with to tho point of its third ri a ling.

Adjourned. Given to Understand That Gambling Must C ease iii Chicago. Chicago. Aug. ll.—A party consisting of diaries L. Hutchinson, W'ut.T. Raker. Martin J. Russell, J. \V. Coit. Victor F. Lawson and Marshall Field suddenly appeared at the mayor's office and had a long consultation with him. They told him plainly that gambling must be stopped in Chicago, and talked to him in the most emphatic manuei possible.

In condsicration of this the mayor is said to have promised that tho gambling houses, which are now in full blast, shall be closed at once and kept closed. New York, Aug. ll.—Whatever view might be taken of the situation all through the night and early this morning, it looked as though the strike on the New York Central rood was slowly but surely petering out. The Buffalo Express, or newspaper train, moved exactly on time this morning and before seven o'clock two trains had been sentout over the Harlem division. Having been successful so far, the management set about making its* plans for the day and soon after the announcement was made thatjall trains would be running to-day with the exception of two locals. At six o'clock this morning Vice President Webb, in answer to a question as to whether tile firemen of the road had joined tho strikers, said they had not struck and that all trains so far were running all right and fully manned. Mr. Week said he had not heard from Mr. Depew yet and did not expect to to-day. The worst of tho strike is over aud Mr. Webb thought there was no likelihood that Mr. Depew would be called upon to interfere. Tho first train of freight forwarded from this city over the road since the trouble rom-menceo moved out of the yards this morning for Albany. All freight shipped was of unparishable nature and neither the preliminary work nor Hie actual forwarding was marked with any excitement or difficulties. HAVE PLENTY OF MEN.

At West Albany, below Black Rock, the western express had a narrow escape from being wrecked to-day. The switch at this point was half open when the train carne along at lightning speed. Happily the engineer noticed J he switch misplaced and succeeded in stopping the train just in time. The assistant superintendent said the switch had boon left open by one of their own men and the danger signal was Hying which had not been observed by the engineer. No Troop* Needed.
