The quanti on wits, could it U-settled justly and humanely w ithout further disturhnnre? Wa* nut* prejmlnw stronger and more binding iii the South than in tile North/ There were 34.1,701 negroes iii tin* North. Presumably they had liad every advantage of odin*ation and enlightenment. A’et in traveling through tln-x* statea you would not tim I a negro at work for a railroad company, or on a street car, or occupying any position of trust or honor or emolument iii tile state government, It could not be tiiat tin* negrv* was not qualified for any of three position*.

Mr. Butler justified the expenditure propone I in his bill by p<'biting to the appropria-iiotp mode to aid tin- Indians iii moving mid the money ai'propria Us I to exclmle the Chilies--. He said that the question might lie nskcd:    Why    should the negro leave tile H< ait hern stat**"'    Been tine    wherever the iH'pns-s pvt fie red in muss or in numbers greater than their white neight**r* exjs-ri-eiH*» showed that they did not advanre in the scale of eiviliration, but actually rein (graded. NOT TOTALLY DK PH AV ETI. Mr. Butler >aid he di«l not believe in tile total depravity of the negro. He Is* I ie vert there were great (iresihilities instore for him; that if the government would do its fluty by him lie would ilhmiihatc the dark continent of his fathers with Hie light of lilierty regulated by law. It was argued that the negro had helped develop the South without reward. In Clawer to this Mr. Butler said that the institution of slavery. In* believed, had retarded the development of the stat*** when it existed. Tin* negro had not l**en without reward. He luid ls**n transformed from tile rude savage <>f tile equator to a cond it Lai vvhL-li made him tit to Uremic a citizen of a republic in tin* temperate roue. As to the claim that the South was tin* negro.-’* home, Mr. Butler said that few negroes in tin* South had homes of their own. Hfid that th** citizen of any country, while or black, rarely jiennitted Mentifiient to deter him from moving w hen he thought he could better his condition. Mr. Butler tjuoted fi‘*>m tin* Lev. Edward BIV ton. Rev. J. S. bf and Rev. Benjamin Gaston, all cidored, iii support »»f iii-- statens': it tliat emigration was tilt* only .solution of the rare pr>>14cm.

MR. HOA*’* REPLY. Mr. Hoot, re]dying to Mr. Butler, expn*ssed his gratification at tiw tone and temjs-r. as well as tin* ability and eloquence with which the senator from South Carolina liad pre-w-rtcd hi.- owai view. But it seetnoi to him that the pm|Mention was tie* m«ist astonishing that ever had been beard in the legislative histor\ of the senate, or iii tile legislative history of any free. civilized and prosjienms {«><'pie. T1k* United States wa* at this moment growing in wealth, strength and prosperity, and still the deuiand for lalwr kept more than abreast w ith the general growth of the country. And yet in tile senate of th* Unit.si States a prof**>ition wa- ma*to. that by th? f<'rec of Uh* nation, aided by its treasury. eight millions of laborer* bom on American mu I. entitled to every right, were tote deport** I. Mr. Hoar paid a high rempliment to ex-Bciuitcr Bmce of Mns-ix-ippi and to the eight or ten vjored men who bad sat in the heu*e of repr **entat isew, and declared that there could have l«een no better examples of the Iegislati%e character, for purity of conduct, for son i id new" of ju' lgment, and for ability in •to)tate, than the representatives of that rare It was not. therefore, that the colored rare could not lie made fit for freedom tliat the {■reposition was made, but simply on the ground that the nature of thing*, or the nature of man, wa# such that men of different races (and e*j**<-ially of different complexions! could live together in harmony and I lea ce and freedom and honor under tin- law* of this republic. If that were true, then tile declaration of independcnre was a lie, and t he constitution of the United States rested on rottenness. It seemed to him that not a preposition came from the Smth in reference to th** col or**«l rae- in which tto*re was one ray of hoi** He could not wa* that r»*i>n-sent«tivqs of the South lirt'l any fsilicy but a |*olk*y of dtaqmir.

Whit, he asked, wa* tile terrier to tile n<-^ri> living in pea re in this country; to Iii* dividing between the two jMilitical jiar-ti'*. tis tile Orman* did. ns tie Swim I*-* did, rioft that the white nice would not jiermit that thing to te done. He would like to know what other terrier there was. va. ULA I It TALKS EDUCATION. Mr Blair spoke against the bill, which he declared to be either a manifest iinpowdhility or nu ab urdity. Unless the ^flUD.iHfi of color***! iHs-ple went, it was an aburdity; and if they dial go then a burden would te imposed on the nation which might he called an im-{(ossibilit y, The difficult ie# of the race probl.fn, Mr. Blair declared, exist***! in tho excited imaginations and prejudices of a few white men, not tetw*^!! the races themselves. \s to the id* a of the senator from Alabama (Mr. Morgan), that the cholos was tetwsen murdering the negroes or marrying them, tetween killing them or naomi toting them, he thought that a course of lectures on the sixth and seventh amendments would settle the wdiote thing: and that no more would te heard of a do trine that was an ateurdity and an insult to our common humanity. He finally went on to argue that the true solution of the difficulty lay in Ila* enactment of his bill to promote education. The bill tte-n went over without action. The sFUiate proceeded t*» tile eonsideration of executive iMi-iiK*—., mid at 4:l-r» a*ljourned until Monday. IN THE MOl’rtE. WssntXGToN, Jan. 17.—The time of the hon** waa almost entirely taken up yester-dav in disrusrting a resolution reported by Mr. McKinley, frmu the committee on rules, providing for the appointment of a iqiecial world's fair ('oniniittee of thirt«,en to report within three days a plan by which the house eau determine the site of tin* proposed fair and rttiterquetitly to re{s*rt a bill providing for th** fair. Mr. Cannon of Illinois, as the minority of Hie committee on rules. re{*>rt»*d a auhetitute resolution instructing the eoonnittee on foreign affair- to rep**rt to tin* bouw** a method of #ele<db g tin locality of the world's fair— first, w tetter Uh* fair shall be held castor west of the Allegheny mountains, and, second, the s* lection of the phw^e for tho location of the fair; an.I after the location has I wen d»s*id**d bv the h<mse, that the committee i* P*rt a bill prohidiiig for a world's fair in lStrj at tl^. plaee *wleeteil by the h* 'Us** A long di*s*ussion followed iii which a #<x>re or more of representatives took part. Mr. Hilt, chairman of tin* foreign affairs committee, favor***! tho sutetitute and said if the bouw would 'hs'ide u|s»n the site the committee could w ithin twenty-four hours re{v»rt a plan for the fair which would be satisfare tory t*» the bolis**. A nu ml sr of other member* sycke on the subject. The principal at'gnmeut iii favor of the special committee w as tiiat it would Is* likely to ileal less jsn tially w ith the conqiet-ing Hties than the foreign relations commit-tee, whose chairman is an ardent supjtorter of Chicago's claims. Mr. Cannon finally modified his resolution bv striking out the clause requiring the vote to te taken on bleating the fair east or west •f tte Alleghenies. A vote was taken on Mr. Cannon’s sulwtitute as modified and it was (tofeabsl—yeas, 140; nays, Hi Mr. Springer, rising to a question of privilege, said that he ted kept h close tally of the vote and his tally (ILI not agree with the official tally. He asked f«*r a nomnt. A re-count n versed the form**r remit and tte substitute was agreed t*v—yens, 187; nays, LH. Then much confusion ensued as to the next step to be taken in pnrliane*ntnry {»roceed-ings.

Til** vote wa* watched with intense interest, and wten it was known, at the end of the roll call, that the rv~"lutioii ha*l lieen defeated bv a tie vote, Mr. Springer, who bad voted in the i Hi mutt ive, changed his vote to th** negative in or*tor to to* able to move a reconsideration.
