They were not really alarmed any Wise Panicky but they could not understand the necessity for so Long a secret session if All was right. Putting ail together it has been an anxious Day for both parties the republicans being the roust confident hot not free from apprehension. To lose the presidency upon Louisiana after All their efforts to hold that state and with the full knowledge that it is Republican a fair election would have been a great aggravation. It would have been the election president by Bull dozers and shot guns m five parishes. Republican doubt Wab dispelled and democratic Hopes crushed when the door opened after 5 clock and the Nunon Cement was made that the commission stood 8 to 7 in favor giving Louisiana to Hayes. The news spread with the rapidity lightning. Some threw up their hats and others swore acco Dlug As political Predeo too moved the spirit. On the streets and in the hotels you could Tell a Republican Democrat by the smile frown. The last Hope the Tilden men is now gone and the disagreeable fact seems generally recognized by them to no get some Are belligerent and Call for a breaking up the commission by the withdrawal the democratic members but this class is not As Large As noisy. Others propose that Congress filibuster until after March and Force a new election. I a Bieh meow be done if enough democrats would agree but the More conservative members like chairman Hewitt and Ben Hill repudiate this idea. They say that it would be Folly and would lose to the democracy More than could be gained. Still opinion is so diverse that at this hour the democracy Are at sea and in All probability will not agree upon the line action until monday. They Are disappointed and bitter but not insane and since the translation the Oregon dispatches and the ugly fact brought out As to that Case they have lost Hope achieving anything there t in fact they Are thrown upon the defer save and Are to bldg to Delend the Oso Motiey in the Purchase an elector. This is up Hill work. There will probably be no session the hou6q to Morrow. They will meet and immediately take a recess until monday to Gire an Opportunity tor a full caucus and Exchange opinion. The republicans Are in a Joyful Frame mind feeling that they have fairly won in a tribunal chosen mainly by the democrats. They Langh at the idea that anything can now be done by Congress any other human Power to prevent the inauguration Hayes and regard the great struggle As eff cot rally settled. A Rush to hear the Var duct. At half past 3 clock the balls and corridors in the Vicinity the supreme court room began to fill up with a eager throng to hear the verdict. The excitement and interest were much greater than when the commission were deciding in the Florida Case and for More than two boars the crowd waited patiently in the heat and discomfort the Illy ventilated place and whiled away the time with speculation endless chaff and very bad jokes As is customary such occasions in Washington. There were All sorts people there from the ragged and dirty Fellows All Solors out work but still american citizens and your amp a politicians up to the grave and dignified senators and the nervous excitable representatives from the two wings Tbs Capitol. Or. Blaine flew around in his eager impetuous Way Button holing Taos whom suspected having information. Dorsey. Patterson Allison Aud the two camerons with Kelley Cockrell Eaton Booth Logan and Gordon walked about through the crowd chatting and speculating pleasantly and freely As to the decision with All they met without reference to politics. There was no bad humor up to the time that the decision was announced. Evarts and Shellabarger held a Long whispered consultation in a recess near at hand As they waited while Merrick Field Green and others the democratic counsel had a Jolly time it in an adjacent room. Members the House would Drift Over in Shoals and listen for a moment to the current flow Light speculation and then co Back to their seats to nurse their impatience As hey Best would. Every time the door by which the commission leave the chamber was opened the crowd would make a Rush and surge up to it like a wave and then finding that it was opened Only to permit a messenger to pass out in they would surge Back again and with Many such Little incidents they kept going backward and Forward like a troubled sea. Once the door opened and edmukd8 came striding out. Then there was a great struggle to get near him. But Only took a few Steps when be changed Bis mind who Perez briefly to a messenger near by who started at Onee to the Senate chamber and then went hastily Back to the court Root. Boon after this a report gamed general circulation that the commission had decided by a Voutos i j to 4. To behind the returns. A few a cuffed it and were elated depressed As they happened to Hope but the great mass listened with Many grains allowance knowing How easy it is at such times for All sorts stories utterly without foundation to get into the Publio Mouth. Su8pekse ended. When the announcement was finally made there was an impetuous movement made for Down town and in a very few moments the Soesoe All this turbulent anxiety was deserted and desolate. Warm and Earnest discussion. Benator Feyoo opened the Dieseu amp Sion before the Commissi a to Day in a speech half an hour followed by airman Garfield Aud Bayard who a poke one hour Edmunds. Hunton Hoar the latter briefly and Bradley who closed the debate. The discussion was very warm and Earnest but entirely courteous. The earnestness intensified toward the Elow when it became apparent the vote a Bradley would again decide. He gave it to intimation till near the Hoar voting and the feeling anxiety grew very Strong. He spoke about to a minutes then read from notes prepared in St night stating his views clearly and Teisei and they abundantly sustained his subsequent votes. The offers evidence taken non the order were submitted by counsel and rejected seriatim. Counsel were at Onoe informed the fast and As they asked no farther time for argument the commission proceeded at 8 30, again in secret session. The v6te the pain question decided to count the votes Fob Hayes. On very important Point the vote was eight to seven the reasons assigned Are two first As in Florida Congress Bas no right to go behind the Eert Floate the governor based the report the canvassing returning boards second the comm Aaion can not take evidence Algunde returns to show that an elector was ineligible the Day Bis election it not being alleged that was ineligible at tho time voting. The decision the Florida Case was regarded As having settled most the Points raised but tho democratic commissioners insisted upon a distinction in the two oases by which the refusal to take testimony might be reversed. In the Florida Case the objections did not charge the canvass was fraudulent but Only that the returning Board acted for in a mistaken View the Law and exceeded shelf jurisdiction. How democrats regard the situation. The democrats Are buzzing like bees to night. They Are not All in a bad humor. Borne them Are the cd Morary quite the reverse. A riot at the supper table the Ebbutt House is reported. Two prominent demo arts one from the West Oyster our device. No. 2�?yes, and in a glad it too. No. 1�?i�?Ttn not. Tilden was elected and we be been ii eaten t done to like it we ought not to submit to it. Us no. 2�?Well, i always pay my gambling debts. I sensation a the report ready. The sub Corn in it fee to draw the report the decision wow messes. Miller Strong and Hoar. The report wag concluded this evening and will be transmitted to the president the Senate in the morning probable proceedings to Day. The joint convention will meet at noon. The House win object to to the decision the commission. The two houses will separate and then the House will take a recess As before till monday morning. Jurj appropriation Bill. Secretary Jet Oberon was before the Senate committee appropriations to Day and impressed non them the necessity the passage a deficiency naval appropriation till which includes arrearage pay under the Lair last session. He said that if the Dei Leteney was not allowed it would be impossible to maintain the squadrons foreign stations and that they would to compelled to return to the United states. Of cd to Treasury swindles. To Bas been definitely ascertained that the swindling Spera tons curled by Treasury clerk Douglass and his Confederate a new York lawyer. Lia it Rammo Auasi to nearly every City my tic unit erf states in Shtob any considerable number that class United states bou�1s which the swindlers operated were held it is estimated by those in position to understand the True inwardness this matter that Only a very Small fraction the operations have As yet been uncovered. It is a amp retained that other lawyers besides the one in new York Are implicated in the matter and quite a number other people by a Dpi the lawyers whose names Are withheld until further proof can be obtained. Treasury offi Lols do not seem to appreciate tho importance speedy action m regard to the immediate apprehension All parties engaged to this swindling operation Aud As a consequence it is feared that Many them will escape. Douglass is the Only party who bus yet been arrested Aud is thought tho least guilty the entire gang and was worked a Long time before yielded to the temptation. Inter oceanic canal project temporarily abandoned. Signor Adan Cardenas special commissioner tho nicaraguan government Bas abandoned All Hopes a successful consummation the inter Ocean to canal treaty and will 6tart for new York in a few Days Aud will take a Steamer Early next month for Aspinwall. He Bas been at Washington four months without being Able to secure a final and successful conclusion to his important Mission. Notwithstanding the interest the president in the successful inauguration this great project constant delays there delayed the negotiation the principal plea at the department state being that the political situation absorbed every thing. Nothing would be done. The treaty so far As completed was presented to the president for his approval. While it provided for neutrality and the right Way it was defective in Ibe essential feature providing proper measures for inaugurating the work and this Point there has been much controversy As to whether it was a proper subject the treaty stipulation. It was proposed to provide for the creation an International company with a Board directors As Well As one construction. These boards were to represent the International character the Enterprise and to be composed gentlemen connected with commercial interests. Each nation a party to the Enterprise was to have assigned to it its quota Stock which could not be deprived its nationality in order to prevent an acquisition an undue control the Enterprise by any one nation. The friends the project were anxious to embody these features in the treaty but for some inexplicable reason the negotiators would not agree non the form their introduction. All Hough ail admit the importance and necessity the Enterprise its Fate Bas been somewhat singular. Or. Seward bitterly opposed the measure. While there 1s record an expression approbation As a measure state policy and it As one the great enterprises the world ther does not seem to Havo existed in the department state under its present administration that approbation which might be expected in View the interest taken in the work by the president. Senor Cardenas the nicaraguan commission says that there has been much misrepresentation in regard to the attitude the nicaraguan government toward this project. He has received recent official advices from Liis government which indicate no abatement interest in the work. He said the Best evidence this was that two missions bad already been sent to the United states in this interest and although his own bad failed All Bope would not be abandoned.

The commissioner further stated that be will suggest to his government that tho us beet be permitted to rest until the views the next administration the United states government a re Knowd in which time the fre ooh exploring party will have completed their labors and work and will then know the fallacy their the by that s ship canal should be built without looks and that a Nob a work with looks will be entirely feasible. He said that the Nina Raglan government and people have great expectations from the canal and fully appreciate Ita importance to them As a nation and to the world at Large As a great National Highway. His government is willing to make All possible concessions to promote the work and prefers that the United states with whom they feel a Community political interest and in consequence Ita geographical position the continent should to consulted and advised within every stage this great work. He a id that . Meigs had no contract with the nicaraguan government and in his opinion would have none As they had no idea Grantin away such an important franchise to an individual. He said that the Panama Railroad interest has arrayed itself in opposition but did not think that it would stand in the Way As it was evident from expressions in diplomatic and commercial circles that Ita past record would not gain for it any important support As against the completion tho anal filibustering prospects. The extreme democrats will try to Force filibustering. But As the night wears in grows More and More apparent that they Orn not command their party strength for the purpose. Flow for Packard. The president will probably recognize Packard at the governor Louisiana within the next two weeks. The conclusion at we Tab the commission have arrived Soems to preclude the possibility a recognition Nic boils. The president has waited tor the reports the committees and the judgment tho gentlemen the commission will undoubtedly have great weight with him. The Louisiana democrats now Here will at Onoe Lay before the president to fact that under the Laws Louisiana the returning Board has nothing to do with the declaration the result the election for governor. On the contrary the Law provides general Assembly shall canvass the votes and declare the result. The returning Board declared Packard elected Bat the Nicholls legislature canvassed the returns upon duplicates obtained from the clerks the District courts with whom they were deposited according to Law and declared Nicholls was elected. They claim that the decision the commission can to be construed As strengthening Packard Scase in any respect. Poluta in the Louisiana contest. Washington february 16.�?in the Case Louisiana per Contra the offers proof and written objections charged every species Craod including conspiracy to return As chosen electors those who were not elected. In jul Hisha also the legality the returning Board was attacked will offer proof to that effect. The Republic a members the commission argued the differences alleged did not really exist. The democrats urged that the papers sent them by the president the Senate in the Louisiana Case did not show the governors certificate was based any canvass but the republicans showed that the certificate the Secretary state proved the canvass and its result. The Case was claimed and shown by the republicans to be essentially the same As that Flurida and this the decision was reached. The question eligibility was decided by refusing to receive the evidence offered intended to prove that Brewster and Levisee were Federal. Officeholders at the time the election and that Kellogg and a few others Wero ineligible under the state Constitution. It was ii end that Power to elect to determine the manner election is granted directly to the legislature by the Federal Constitution and can impose disabilities in addition to show trap esed by the Federal Courti Sutton. In support this View to was said it would have been unreasonable to permit a disqualification which would deprive the country the Best men in the state who might presumably be found among the state officers. The argument which evidence was refused As to the eligibility the Federal office holders was furnished by Justice Bradley who stated had modified his views somewhat by reflection this subject. He was la a opinion that the language in the Constitution that no person shall be a senator &c., and that no person shall be appointed an elector <fcc., Aie to be construed simply As different ways expressing the same thing. Therefore there is no prohibition upon a state As to the appointment Federal officers As electors their action was valid if they were eligible at the time acting As Electra. In the Florida Case Justice Bradley Hadnot made up Bis mind As to to the effect Humphreys alleged ineligibility because As claimed to was a officeholder at the time be voted and pending further consideration upon it Bradley said to would vote to admit the evidence As to the allegation. Bot in the Case Brewster and Levasco there wa9 no allegation that they were office holders at tho time tho meeting the electoral College and therefore Bradley a View prevailing there was nothing left in the Case requiring the introduction evidence because the fact alleged if proved that they were office holders november 6, have been regarded As material to the Case. Justice Bradley a consists boy in both cases must be apparent from the foregoing. Funereal conclusion the democrats. A great Many democrats Are consoling themselves with the Assumption that that which is now a bitter defeat Lor them will result at last to their everlasting gain the ground that whichever party goes in now Trust be Defeated four years hence. They say the Senate will in two years be democratic and in four years the presidency Congress and everything will come to them in a manner to repay them for the disagreeable experiences to Day. Subsidiary Silver Coin. The acting secretory the Treasury Bas issued instructions under which any depository Bank located in any City in which there is no Independent Treasury office by transmitting to the treasurer tho United states a Eert Floate stating that the sum 11,000 has been placed to his credit in the general account will receive dlr not from some mint in the United states tree expense a like amount subsidiary Silver Coin. Flew army regulations proposed. It is understood that the army Board which general Schofield is president has reported now regulations for the army the result which is to make the Heads bureaus the War department in Washington staff officers to the general the army. This is precisely the scheme to which general Rawlins made such strenuous Lection when to was Secretary War.
