LYNCHBURG, Va., July News prints a letter from Oen. Jubal A. Early replying to the recent strictures of Maj. J. H. Laey of Spottgylvania, which concludes as follows: "As to Laey's criticisms of my military career, and especially his reference to my Valley campaign, they are too contempti- ble to notice, and show his utter want of military acumen and correct information. "I am perfectly willing to abide the judgment of men correctly informed and duly qualified to form a correct opinion as to all my operations, especially in re- gard to the unequal contest in the Valley in 1864. His insinuations as to my being an habitual drunkard and a practical miscegenationist are but the falsification of an unprincipled and untruthful crank, ss he is known to be by those acquainted with him He says that he inherited 'lit- le nave an honorable name.' Noonewell- u formed us to his history can doubt the act that he failed to inherit a proper sense if honoraud a due regard for the truth. "As to the intimation of some newspaper that Lacey's tirade might a challenge from me to him for a I have only to say that according to iiy understanding of the so-called code of icnor, if he was a man worthy of such no- ice after I had pronounced him a liar and n slanderer in person as well as in my :ard, the UBid code does not entail on me he initHttve. "I regret having to intrude on thepublic ittention in this mariner, but the promi- leuce, given to Lacey's communication by he newspapers has rendered it, in my es- luiation, proper for ine to do so, and I rust that thu papers which have pub- ished his communication will have the iourtesy to publish this." Two Fatalities at Newark, N. J. NEWARK, N. J., July unknown man, supposed to be a tramp, was last nigbt run over by a train on the Pennsyl- vania road at Harrison and killed.

THE WAY CLEARED FOR THE TARIFF DEBATE IN THE SENATE. APPROPRIATION BILLS DISPOSED OF Nothing to Interfere With Continuous Discussion of the Tariff Bill Unless the Blrer and Harbor Bill Is Called Up. Several Election Contests to be Dis- posed of in the Miscel- laneous Business Will be Considered. WASHINGTON, July senate hai finally set about the discussion of the tar- iff bill in earnest, having disposed of all of the appropriation bills w ith the excep- tion of the deficiency bill, which has not yet come from the house. All of the ap- propriation bills have gone to the presi- dent, with the exception of the Indian bill, which passed the senate and now goes into conference, the sundry civil hill, which has passed both houses and will go into conference this weak, and the defici- ency bill which is now on the house calen- dar. There is very little to interfere with the continuous discustjpn of the tariff bill, therefore, except tile river and har- bor hill, if it should be taken up. and reports of eonferenoe committees which have right of way. No determination has been reached about taking up the river and harbor bill, and during the early part of the coming week the consideration of the tariff bill will proceed regularly each day with the understanding that there will be an ad- journment at o'clock, the senate meet- Ing each day at 11 o'clock. The Repub- lican members of the committee on privi- leges and elections have almost completed the consideration of the federal election bill and they will prepared te report to a caucus in the near future. If this caucus is held before the end of this week, an order of business may be agreed upon which will displace the tariff bill for the river and barber bill. It is estimated that this bill can be disposed of in three or four days. In the morning hour Mr. Gray will slst upon the consideration of the bill for the transfer of the revenue marine to the naval service, with the chances in favor of passing the bill before the end of this week. Other miscellaneous business will be considered in the morning hottr during the week. Reports on election cases are matters of privilege in the house and may be called up at any time. For several weeks past the elections committee has bad three oases ready for settlement, but although anxious to have them disposed of the com- mittee has deferred to the wishes of the committee on rules and allowed other matters to intervene. This week, however, the committee has determined to have its innings and it will call up the first of its cases on Tuesday, or as soon as the sundry civil bill is out of the way. This is the case of Chalmers, Republican against Morgan, Democrat. It will take but two or three hours to dispose of tliis case, as the committee's re- port is unanimous infavorof Mr. Morgan, the sitting member. The case could be disposed of in shorter time, but Gen. Chalmers wishes to make a speech in his own behalf. The agricultural committee wants to dispose of some bills during the week, and it may endeavor to oppose the elections committee concerning the arrangement of time. The compound lard bill and the bill taxing meat products are the meas- ures that the agricultural committee wants to dispose of and as these affect the farmers, the election committee may be defeated in its endeavor to secure consid- eration of its business, provided of course, that the agricultural committee decides to oppose it. If the elections committee is allowed right of way it will bring up also the cases of Miller, Republican, against Elliott, Democrat, from South Carolina and of Langston, Republican, airainst Veuable, Democrat, from Vir- ginia. There is a possibility that the de- iiciency bill may be brought up for dis- cussion. _________________ Died of Dead PBOVIDBNCE, R.
