Washington, Jan SI.—The galleries of th** bouw** were crowded yesterday in antic!-pattern of a resumption of Wadomky'i con- tftit. Mr. Hrerkinndge of Kentucky sounded the preliminary war cry of the Den**-rnta. The clerk in reading lim journal omitted tin* ham*n of thoNe not vol Lug on til** question of ('onsideration WedmwJay. I his br»»ught Mr. Breckinridge hi hi* feet shouting for recvijriii-ti«»ti. lie »l» niani**tl that the name* of those not voting should be ivoontad in attonlaiMV with tl»e l uktti. The Quaker a*»enteJ to Hie request mid the coms-tiofi was made. When the reading of the journal was over several tut'Utlters were on their feet. Tlie speaker recognized Mr. McKinley, who recognized that the journal be approved aiel demanded Hie previous question. Mr. Bhuicltard of louisiana, tailing at the b*p of his yoke mo as to lie heard ab ive tile din, said he nww to a question of privilege. Tile quaker refused to recognize him and put tile question mi the a[>proval (rf the journal amid shouts of disapproval from the Democrat*. Mr. Springer of Illinois, one of the Democratic leaders, managed to make himself heard before the speaker made his deciaon ou the vote. He said he moved that the house adjourn before Mr. McKinley’s motion wa* (Hit, and the qieakcr wa* obliged to jolt tile motion to adjourn liefore the house. Mr. Bland demanded re*agnition. A dozen other Dcmorrata were six Kiting for the same privilege. Finding that he was not recognized Mr. Bland cried out that he wished to make a correction in the journal, a right that every representative liad. Tile qieaker’s furtlier ndusal to re*>ogni»e Mr. Bland callo I forth shoot* loud atal long frmn the Detno-crat* and Mr. Bland, shaking hi* fist in the direction of th** *|ieaker‘sde*k. ma*ie some unintelligible remark* at the top of hi* voice that were clearly uncomplimentary to Mr. Uiwl. [It is understood that Mr. Bland said. Ymi are the meanest tyrant that ever presided «iver a legislative Is sly aud I denounce —.”1 After the confusion had beearn* less intense tin' speaker put Mr. Springer * motion to adjourn. Mr. McKinley detnanded the yeas ami nays, and they were ordered. The roll call dis-cioaed a strict i«arty roto ain! the motnm w a* defeat**d—nays, 160; yeas, 142. Mr. McKinley demainletl the previous question on the apjiToval of Ute joumid. aud the yea* and nays wen* ordered on demand of Mr. Carlisle. While the** proceedings were going on Mcouting (lartkvi had been amt out after recreant members and little squad* lie-gan to isitue in. The L)enK»crat* refrained from voting on the roll call. Wbcu the roll call wa* finished it w as evident that a quorum hail not voted. The qieeker then followed his pn«'<eeding of Wednesday by reeling a list of names of Democrats present who had not voted, and dectansl that a quorum was in the house ami that the previous question was sustained. Jeers and groan* came from the Democrats; cheer* an*I hand--chipping from the Republic)!*. Mr. Springer rose to a question of privilege but Hie speaker refused to recognize him, lie-cause the clerk had already begun to call the roll on the motion of Mr. McKinley to approve the journal. Mr. Breckenridge of Kentucky, with vehement gestures, rejieated his remarks of Wtslnesday, denouncing Mr. Heeds action as revolutionary. All this time the roll call was going on and the Democrats enlivened the pr«speedings by shouting “Question,” “Question,” “What’s the quest ion:” Mr. Carlisle was Anally recognis'd and the roll (all w a* suspended. Mr. Carlisle said there wa* my much confusion that nothing could I# heard, and to Mn* tile *|**aker replied that it seemed to him that the disorder came from the gentlemen who were demanding order. A cheer from the Republicans echoed his remarks. Mr. Recd then stated that tin* question was on the adoption of Mr. M' Kinley’s motion toapprove the journal, ami the roll tall was proceeded with, the Democrats, a* before, attaining from voting. At the conclusion of the roll call. the s|leaker annotine**I tliat a number of iJemo-crut* were in their seats, giving their name* and d*s-!ared a quorum present The yeas, lie announced, were BL’, the nays I. lie tlorlarad the journal adopted. “I ap]sal from that decision,” cried Mr. Springer. The shaker refused to recognize him and Mr McKinley arose and pro*x**>!*-1 to speak. Without minding Mr. McKinley, Mr. Springer continued to s]*eak at the top of his von*. “The gent!* luau from Illinois i* n**t in order,** said the speaker. “I am in order.” crud Mr. Springer. “The gentleman wail take his seat,” said the Speaker.

Bbout** giv t« I thi- nail/ aiel the acme that rtv ulk d any «>f th»’.?e etui* ted W«la -day began. Mi. McKinley <x>ntinued to s|*ak on Hie qihstMiu rniM-il al**ut the jiower of the quaker to ciniut niemlaim as present who n*fustd to vote, in or.ice to araire a quorum. Mr. Springer in quick tones continued to deny that he w a* out of arder. He was cheered by th** Democrat* and th** galleries. A lull enabled Mr. Bland of Mt**»uri to rise to protest against the non-*sm«tiiutn>a of Mr. Springer. He we declared out of order by the «]**«ker. “I am iii order,” erie*! Mr. Bland, excitedly, j amid admiring cheer* from his colleaguea I Thing* began to quiet down, when Mr. Mc-Un wry of Kentucky t leu sanded recognition and prtxtwded to make ord**r out of clia<i* by explaining bow matters stood, and asking that Mr. Springer be recognized. This request the speak*-!* granted and M r. Springer state*l his grievant. He deniamlal a coelection of the rectuxl. holding that it was the privilege of every member to see tliat lie was correctly recorded in it. The speaker sustained Mr. Springer and the latter sat down without further interference. Mr. McKinley th»*n continued his remarks. He reviews I the procvdlings *rf Wedmwdxy, ootitemling that the speaker, in c«*unting the Dien.bern w ho refused to vote as present, bad violate*! no rule of parliamentary law. A parliamentary controversy ensued during Mr. M* Kmh y’s athiresss between Mr. M**-Kntley and Mr. Carlin!# on the qieaker s ruling that it was not necessary to have a quorum voting to pas* a measure, but simply to have a quorum present. A* one or the other gent Ionia n #**j»rei! a point, he was greeted w ith applause by those on his side of the bouse. OXX VOTINO MEMBER SUFFICIENT AU that was involved in the appeal, mid Mr. McKinley, was simply a qumtion (rf fact. Wa* not the st leaker * count correct! The constitution did not declare that a majority <rf Hie meinl«er* who answered to their names should constitute a quorum. It was not de-<*4ded bow the question of majK'tty should be deterniimsi. He thought it right that if sixty-seven members sat silent in their pla.ee one member should have a right to pas* a bill. It wa* the duty of the others, if thpy wished to defeat it, to cast their vote* •gainst it. Mr. f'arlide inquired if one man could pav* • bill over the president's veto. Mr Mc Kinley said that the constitution f divided that a yea aud nay vote should be taken on a veiled lull. [Applause ] Mr. Carlisle responded that one-tlfth of the metn»**r« had a right under the constitution to call for the yeas and nay* on any tither proposition, and it then became as imi»era-tive a* the other. [ Applause ] MU. M’EINLEY'H (XIXFXfWIOM. Mr. McKinley said tliat when Mr. Carlisle wa* speaker be had Kilned many bills that had been {fassed w I ti lout the presents* of a quorum He was willing to admit that he had filibustered in fiast year*, but-he ishiW n*»t now recall that he had done it from a high, «»r a ie Lie or a worthy |H<|*«*e. [Applause] No minority had ever carried on filibustering that had n«it ls*en ashamed of it-*elf afterward. If gentlemen on the otlier si<!e wanted a rev*»lution, let them get out of the house. [Applause.] Those gentlemen wanted to perpetuate a Onion that said that a man wa* «L«*nt from hi* seat txmstructieely when in fact he wa* |«Te***nt. The lt**|Mile beans want**d the journal to declare the truth The tyranny «rf the tuin* irity was infinitely more odious than the tyranny of a majority. Mr. Crisp interrupted Mr. McKinley to say tliat Mr. Blaine hail denied Ute right of any ou«* to say tliat a member wa* present. TUE OPEN DOOR TO ANARCHY. Mr Turner of Georgia said in reply to Mr. McKinley that if the wild view presented here wa* anoa grafted on the jiractnw of the house it would inaugurate a reign of anarchy at*! prortigivv unpreeedente*! iii the anna is of tile country. He abused t he Republi*-ans of having changed their view s on this question to »uii m | unsent emergency. Mr. Reed, in his spee* h at \Yuu.<st*x*k. had said that filii lustering was a dishonest, unpatriotic praEAi*#. He d*-m«si the right of the *}slaker to mite hint as ptveeiit ami not voting, thus holding him up to the country a* dishonest and uiq«itriotic. The speaker hail rn* more control over the minutes than lie liad. He had no doubt of the decision of the ]ie* .pie w hen this question should g*> to the country, but a** an Amerh-an citizen, anxious to maintain the free condition of the fathers, he asked member* to put liehind them this temptation. Mr. Butterworth said this dts*isi*Hi wa* a depart *1 re from the pra**tice whi**h had I ss*'n tolerate*! in the house half a century', and which was.-anctified by antiquity, if antiquity could sanctify that w hich was in itself wrong This question involved the power of the ma-jority to rule in this oiuntry, and mein beni sin Aik I determine w hether the constitution contain.si in itself the element of suicide. Mr. Butterworth dissented from the pn> prwitloo a*lvamod by some of the minority member* that a member must answer to himself and his (smstituenta alone whether he would vote and discharge his duty here or lint. That d.s-trine would have |sowed when it was br id that nw-mber* were anil>assa*i<ini from the states; but it would not do in January, I1*.nj. A member was here to legislate not simply for himself am! for his constituents, lait for the whole country, and tile country had a right to exact of him that he lie in his place and |ierfonu his duty. At Uh* cl.lee of Mr. Butterworth’s speech Mr. McKinley moved to lay on the table the apt teal from the speaker’n decision. Mr. Springer moved to adj*airn. The motion was defeated. The rob call was proceeded w ith and the motion to lay the appeal on tlie table was carried—yeas, 162; nays, 0. No Democrat* responded and mmt of them left their seats during the call of the roll. Sj* aker Reed again noted dow n the names of the IV;, hoc rats present and not voting. When the sjwaker announced the result of the vote an*! declared Mr. McKinley’* iiMition carried there were about* of “no quorum,” and exclamation* of indignation on the Democratic Hide. In the midst of the tumult and uproar th* sleeker reo'gnized Mr McKinley for a motion hi adjourn, put it and declared it carried, lait liefore lie left the chair amid -di- .ut*of “shame” fr*au the excited Democrats) he fiaused long enough to give Mr. Kf.ringer a chaine to say that he liad demanded the yea* anti nays. The sjieaker said he had beard no request for the yeas ami nays; hut if Ute gentleman from Illinois said tliat he r*we in hi* place and called for them the *peaker would recognize the demand, and so Mr. Springer had the j*tor satisfaction of having the yeas and nays called, with the result, yea* IM, nays 57. The house then adjourned, the Republicans being jubilant over their sue*wk ami the Democrat* feeling correspondingly depressed. those who authorised it, ami who had locked on with complacency no long as the thieve* were Republicans and th* victim* Democrat*. Mr. Yau«v said that the negro liad Iwgun to prosier only «hen the control of alTair* had been taken front hi* hand* lie referred to the suppressi. -n of tile popular vote north of Manoii & Dixon * line. to the exclusion of negroes from I Hen tree. ami other j.lmw* there He said it wa* to be Imped tliat one black man would be chewet! to represent that section in ortigrw* someday; amt tiiat the intelligent bla*’k man might some day Iw wait to represent the United State* somew here# Ise than in Hayti or Litieria. [laughter ] Mr. VaiKv saki t!u»t, notwithstanding tins threat* of Mr. Ingalls, he believed tliat tile I**.pie of the North would rush to the rescue of their Southern brethren if that threatened uprising of the negro should «»ccur. But th© South would not need their help. lf tliat uprising sh* >ud com© it wa ai Id bring the solution af tiffs race difficulty. Mr Vance san! that he did not claim tliat the negn* wa* in**a|*tl.le «*f civilization; univ that be couki not keep |«o> with the progre** of th* white race. His solution for the rocs problem was “hand* off." lf Ute North would cease to interfere, there was no danger that the negro would be driven to the wall Every iqieeoh rn th* senate denunciatory of Hie Southern people only |ioHtpi>neii tile coming of that day of hurmonv b*.*tween the w hite ain! black raise*.

There wa* plenty of r*s»n» Lit the n**gr*i in the Northern and Western state*, “lf,” said he, “the negro is a grnnl thing, let us dude him.” [laughter*] MR. HAVPTOX MAKES A DENIAL. Mr. Hampton addn-ss«-i th© senate at smile length, He denied the statement of the senator from Kansan iMr. Ingalls;. Iwusisl on a newsjiaper extract, that be wa* in favor of Uh* ext*-Mini uh ion of the negro. He favored no such bomb* (lolicy. He did not think the ineth«MiM of Mr. Ingalls in dealing wuth great public question* wen* begani rig. Mr. Hanqiton turne*! tin* tables against Mr Ingalls by <|ti«>tiug from til© Atlanta Consti-tiition the following extract: “I'ides* history is a false teacher, it is mit piMiihk* for two distinct nu*©*, not homogeneous to exist on terms of |*>litical quality umler the Marne government.

WAsnIngtoit, Jan. 31.—'The senate yesterday listened to speeches of Senator* Vance an*! Hampton on th© race question. Mr Hale repnrte*d lack from th** committee < HD arn«u* a bill appropriating fl.ouUM' to enabk* the KiqieriiiteiidHUt of census to pre-jarc statistics of farm owners, renters, mortgages, interest*, r»*nt*. etc. Mr. HI enuan opposad the bill and cliar-acte*ri?'-1 the nquired sta’Lstics a* of no value Tile money, he said, w<tuki lie wasted. Alter mhih- dk«*u.v-i*M» the bill was imiMti—47 to 4. The “silk ribbon” bill was taken up, and after being slightly amended, was passed. A resolution was agreed to. instructing the committee on public buildings and ground* to inquire a* to the necessity for an additum to the White House, a new government printing office, etc. MR. VANCE ON THE NEGRO QUESTION. Mr. Vane* then to**k the floor and ad-drewed the senate on the negro emigration hilL Mr. Vanes* s speech took a humorous turn and wa* fn*qut*ntly applauded by the crowded galleries. He b»*gan by saying that the sins of the iatJw>r* shall be visited upon the children," which, he san!, wa* another way of saying that th© mistakes and crime* of one generation remain to plague another generation He sketched the history of slavery from it* introduction to it* abolition, and said that for the sake of the negro we are today threatened not only w ith political affliction, but with a servile war, whose weapons shall be the midnight torch and the assassin ■ dagger, and whose victims shall lie sleeping women and children. He criticised Mr. Ingalls remarks as pyrotechnics concealing jaucitv off i*kas. He bad wa robed that speech and wondered where the remedy for the existing evils ©aa Suggested in it. The Kansas senator's sohi tion of “justice” was a1 salt rj definite as the twinkling that remain**! under tile cloaed eye-lids * Aer the withdrawal of light. “Justice” meant that the people *rf the South should quietly and gracefully submit to negro rule wherever the negroes were in the majority. Since the w ar, m herever the negro had ruled, his course had been marked by failure and ruin. A few years of such rule would constitute a damnable blot on the memory of Reunion of the New York Meeting. Player* for Sale. New York. Jan.

Mr. Ives said th© twenty-two new name* now im|a*ril!ed the bill and nome reason must lie given at once for the addition of the new names Mr. Maxton said it was due to til© dignity of the senate to endeavor to effect an amicable saint i«rn of differ©!!****** through a conference. Tin* new name* had li*s*n added doubtless liecause it was deemed advisable to broaden the commission in view of its immense powers. Mr. Cantor said tile n°w nam*** were added solely to enaiiie Mr. Platt to manipulate the fair. The assembly might not agree to a con-1 fen'iice.

Mr. Vender said Tammany's deadly opposition to the twenty-two new men gave til© people the real reus>ai why these new uaiiiet were adde-1.

The new nanx-s were not order©*! to lie placed ontbe list by any one. Mr. Platt was a friend of the fair as was shown by the fact that he was one of th© original incorporators.

Tammany had assured the Republicans that even the governor dare not disobey its mandates. The Bi.bUO sal*sms in New York, under police rub*, made up the 60,600 Democratic majority. Mr. Fassett mid he could, if it were worth w hile. deny every statement of Air Ive* personal to himself.

There was then read, by Mr. R*loach, an interview had with Mr. H. O. Armour, iii which he opposed New York for the fair site. Mr. Row* h asked if Armour were a proper por-wR for the commission. Mr. Faaartt, continuing, den*hmeed Mr. Ives as a “rebel, 1 bearing a pirate'* name.” lie reviewed the new names of tile commission and eulogized them as worthy to conduct tie* fair.
