I‘n»*e* the Mouse. 1 WasifiJfOTON, March 14.—The senate ven-terday amended and J Hoard two house bills for bridge* acron* the MiaNouri ruer at Pierre, H. I)., and aero** the Columbia river between \Ya.shingtoti and Oregon. Mr. Kus tm referred tot wo statements made by Mr. Hoar Wednesday in reference to the Southern state*, one tieing that in the state : of Louuoana. and in some other states, there were law* which made it a lienal offense for a Whiteman to astKx-iate on temw of equality with a black man He asserted that there wa* not the slightest foundation for such a statement. The other statement of Mr Hoar was to the *ffe<*t that there was another law in louisiana w hich pro- 1 vide*! for the sal*’ of colored men for a certain timeout of work, and that the former master should have the preference in the imrchane He asked Mr. Hoar whether he could find any such law on the statute book* uf louisiana He (Mr Kus tie) knew that the critic ism was directed against the Democratic legislature of Louisiana in IRT. but he had never heard a Republic*?! senator iriticiwe the infamous laws enacted iii I ahu*- I ietui by Republican legislatures. There was no such law, however, as that which Mr i Hoar had referred to, and any pretense that there was only illustrated with w hat reek lesKness aud destitution of sense of resjsmsi- j bilify Republican senator* alsike of southern affairs Mr. Hoar said he had read about Louisiana lait a law of this character existed in Mian*- I Sippi. The eduction bill was taken at 2 o'clock and Mr. Blair addressed the senate. At the conclusion of his remarks Mr Hoar resumed the discussion of the law* of southern states relating to colored people Had it not l>een for the objectionable lawn [unwed by some of the southern states, he said, the government of these states would have been remand*-1 iii lRfiSto those who governed lief ore the war. Mr. Sherman asked Mr. Eustis whether he did not know- that the fifteenth amendment never would have ham prof*ised but for the fact that laws of the southern states were depriving the negro of his rights of citizenship. Mr. Eustis asserted that all recount ruction measure* and constitutional amendments weieadopted by the Republican party with the single object of Africanizing the South and maintaining political supremacy; and this he chara< terized a-the “>*reatest crime ever c>-imnittod against civilized communities. ’’ Mr Sherman then made a long defense of reconstruction measures. The first act that pa-sed for the reconstruction of the Southern states had lieen framed by a committee of conservati ve senators, such as Johnston, Trumbull and Fessenden There was at that tune no hostility against the [teople of the South, but rather a universal appreciation of tl»e fact that while they were rat Ii'-ally wrong iii waging a useless war. they had been honest in their conviction* that the doctrine for which they fought wa* the doctrine of the constitution But the laws |>a.v-ed by some of the southern states hail I teen so unjust to the colored fieople and white Republican* in the South that the people North IsH-ame convinced that the object in the South was to overthrow the results tit the war aud deprive the freedmen of the rights of citizenship. Later oil congress had reluctantly a rim* I the negro in suffrage as the only rrm-dv fitted fin* the ca-** There had lieeu no feeling of passion or haste alsiut it. Mr. Sherman had sometimes thought it might possii<l\ have been l*d*cr not to have conferred suffrage on tile colored man lie cause that right had l*»eii nu I Ii. Ie-!, aud suffrage did not now exid with colored men wherever it might lie valuable to them. There was, he said, no feeling of bate existing iii the North against toe South as intl-, im it*-1 bv Mr. George, and if the equal rights of all jasqde rn the South were secured the l*»nple North would Is* satisfied Negro suffrage had not turned out tv- had L-*n ex-[iccted, because no man had dreamed such measures as had been resorted to in the South would have been resorted to to deprive the negro of his rights Injustice had grown out of the Ilf teen th amendment, and out of it not only had the negroes lie»*n deprived of their votes, but thu p** iple of the South enjoyed larger jxiliti a1 power than the same number of people of the North, and until the southern-tate- give these colons! men their right* there would fie disquiet and discontent ami a feeling of injustice. He trusted Hie tune would come when this feeling would disap|**ar and every man should have a right to vote. Congress, he said. could not exercise any control in the local affairs of the southern state-, but what he insisted u[H)ii is that ti ie re shall lie a law that will protect the right of suffrage and that that law w ill be executed with such power that no mail data to expose himself to its penalties, Mr. Batler, replying to Mr. Sherman, said that if the debate had accomplished nothing else, it had shown by the statements of the -euntors from Ohio and Massachusetts that the suffrage had lieen conferred upon the »legixi of the South, not because he was entitled to it, not beca «se he was qualified to exercise it, but lieenu.se of certain laws [Missed bv some of the southern states immediately aller the war. The admission of tho senator from Ohio, h* thought, would go a long way tit throw lug ligut on any future discussion as to tile rights of the negro to vote in the (South Referring to the administration of President Johnson, Mr. Butler slid that one of the most unfortunate days that had ever come over the country was the day that brought about a conflict between the chi *f executive *ud the legislative department of the United States. Between the upjs*r and the nether mill stone, between the executive policy on the one side and the legislative on the other, the South had been ground to powder. Mr Butler spoke of the exclusion of colored men in the northern state- from all political offices, and asserted that there was no disci imination iii the laws of S>>uth Carolina, Miss-ippi. Louisiana or Georgia again-I u man on m-count of hu race or color. He believed that the great body of the [*«iple North were kindly dis'merd toward the people of the South, and t.iat that kindness bad t**en very iuni*b stimulate*i by the fact that tit ill i* his of money w ere being sent South for investment He warm-l the senator from Ohio that whenever he attempted to carry out hi- throat of another entitle uysH? the S«aith, through sujiervi-ors and Unite?!

IN IHE HOUSE WiNtWOTO.x, March 14.—The lard ay considered the Oklahoma h**nse yea-bilt ami ii The Buffalo foroaer Unable ie Local* th* Duiltjr Mu. Bcffalo, March UL—Before the coroner’* jury yesterday in the Bay View ats ident case Grosvenor I. Bond, fireman on the engine of the wrecked train, explained what hap|iened in Dunkirk. H* heard th* bell that sounded alsnut th* time of th* accident and soon felt the train slowing up Wben it stopt**! somebody ran up and shouted: “We're broke in two. Ed, pull out of there’ll lie a collision. ” Th* engineer tried to atari, but the tram wouldn’t move The Uranian was [s jell iv* that the engineer did not aet the brake- that shipped the train, and gave as a reason that he could hear the air when the exgineer applied it. The juror* did not all accept this explanation and the witness explained just how the apl* rat us was placed and how it worked Juror Beading—Are you willing to swear positively that the engineer could not set the brake* without your hearing it? “He could not while I was in the cab, aa I wa* at the time.” The wit ness thought that it would take linger to loosen the brakes when set from the engine. C. B. (.’ouch, division su[**rintendent of the I,ake Shore, testified as to the instructions given to the trainmen in case of a train breaking in two. He was allowed to read from the "Hook of Rules” of the road. Coroner Kenney—Did Mr. Houghtaling break these rules when he started the train from Ihmkirk as he did? “Wa think so,” replied Mr. Couch. “lf he had lived up to the rules the train would have linen repaired at Dunkirk?” “Yea, the rules are plain on this point.” Mr. Couch stated that the engineer was jointly res|K»n.-ible w ith Hie conductor, and with the train in the condition it was any trainman would have Iteen held by the cotn-panv as justified in refusing to go ahead with it. Juror Is-ech rather cornered Mr. Couch by asking how many brakemen there were on this train. Mr. Couch replied that there were two on duty. “But bad the train broken in two more than once would there have lieenmen enough on to handle the section?” Mr. Couch hail to -ay “No.” Juror Chase then asked Mr. Couch what he would ha ce doue with Conductor Hougbt&l-lng if he had brought the train safely on to Buffalo. Mr. Couch said a rule was broken, but be «*ould not say w hat would have been doue. Koine of the jurors seemed to think the relief train was slow in getting to tile wreck. Mr. Couch -aid ftie only delay was in getting surgeons to go. The train left some of them liehind as it was.    IHI Juror Heading—Were there any order* as to who might go on the relief train? Mr. Couch- There were none. Mr. Reading—lf I had applied to go and -ee a friend I had on the train would you have let me go? Mr. Couch— Certainly I should. Air. Reading- How ats>ut re[s»!ters? Mr. Couch—lf I hail l***»n here I should have allowed reporters to go. The ixrroner made an effort to find out who pulled the lad! cord, lait was uiisuixxAetful. Engineer Mooney was recalled, but his testi- I mony was unimportant. They Believe iii a Fractional Currency. W ABBINGTON, March 14.—An adverse re-l<ort was made to the house committee on i (tanking and currency yesterday by a sule committee on the various bills for the tame of fractional [>aj**r currency. The report ' was discussed at some length. It seem»*d to be the sense of the committee that some action should lie taken iii the matter and a majority of mcinliers expressed themselves in favor of establishing a fractional pa|>er currency in connection with the postal service. It was finally agreed that connu hat ion should lie held with the postmaster general and the house commit tea on postoffice* and roads concerning the matter. Wrecked on a Trestle. Birmingham, Ala., March 14.—Part of a freight train on the Georgia Pacific railroad went through a trestle near Horse Creek Mines. The engine and car next to it [*assed over safely. The cars took fire and burned with the trestle. Conductor Martin, Flagman Turner, Pete Saunders (coloredI and Wiley Sa alter* (ix>loix<d» were painfully injured. but will recover.

London, March 14.—A deputation representing the working claw** in a majority of th* cities of th* kingdom called upon Home Secretary Matthew* yesterday to urge upon the government to secure the pa-eage by parliament of a half holiday bill. The arguments ot the d*|Hitation were ably presented and attentively listened to by Mr Matthew*. who promised that the government would take the matter into serious consideration aud if deemed feasible would introduce a measure framed upon the line* suggested The prosier of another exciting delate in the house of commons is assured by the announce*!, lent that Mr Parnell intends to move the appointment of a select committee to inquire into the origin of the forgone* published iii The Tunes and that Mr. Gladstone will Mcontl the motion. The origin of and responsibility for the publication of the forgeries tieing the one phase of the warfare of I be Times against the Parnellites (premim-alily Ism a us* of the large number of lending Tory officials having a hand in the matter) that the government is determined to keep secret at all hazard*, it may tie assumed that th* fight over th* motion will h* a hot erne It seem- to ta* generally taken for granted that The Times hold* a sword over the gov eminent which, if the [viper were abandoned to its own defenra, would fall to the permanent injury if not total political destruction of many ministers, peers and commoner* whose excessive zeal ted them into indiscretions they now regret. A PROTEST FROM THE EARNER* The farmers in the vicinity of Dover have for wan led a protest to the war offlra against the annual Easter military manoeuvre*. which, they say, ruin their crops and injure other property, often beyond re[»air The protest recommend* the selection of some other pla<*e for manoeuvres in order that the hardship* which the petitioners have annually undergone may I* at least temporarily visited u|ion some other community and not permanently upon themselves Justiix* Sir James Hannen ha* taken his de[»arture for Rome, w here he will rest until Easter. Hi* arduous duties as [(residing justice of the special commiauon have told heavily u[»on hi* physical powers, and the rumor of his elevation to the [peerage as a reward for his labor* is again revived. It is feared that the arrest of the Frenchman taken into custody hy the German military anthorine* as he was crossing the frontier at Besort Wednesday will seriously strain the relations of Framx* toward the Berlin Inlier conference, w hich promised to be most ami. able. The affair ha* already created great excitement in Paris, ami is taring used with v isible strong effect by the Parisian journals, w hich have from the outset opposed France’s taking any part in the conference. Herr Krupp, the gunmaker, ha* donated the *T»i of #125,000 for the purpose of erecting dwellings for workingmen at Essen. The miners of E •sen have served the masters with a demand for an increase of wages by .'it) p r cent, and a reduction of their working hour* to eight per day. SNAITH’S CONTRACT. Mr. HOUSE OF COMMONS. The Nee foundlan.l IM-put**—Russian Outrace.— '.lilHm y t;-li mates. LONDON, March 14.- In the house of commons yesterday Sir James Fergusson, under foreign secretary, denied the statement that France had offered :o refer the Newfoundland dispute to arbitration. He hojied, however, that un early settlement of the difficulty would be negotiat-d. Sir Michael Hicks-d;*xch announced that the government would send delegates to the industrial congress at Madrid. Lord George Hamilton, first lord of the admiralty, stated that the estimates for naval construction for the coming financial year would Im* £6,486,000, exclusive of £1,700,000 f lr armaments. Mr. Samuel Smith, member for Flintshire, a-k»*I whether the British ambassador at Bt Petersburg had l**en instructed to direct Russia's attention to the reports of cruelties in Siberia. Mr. W. H. Smith replied that the government had t»een unable to ascertain the truth of the re I orts nod therefore had no power to approA h H i—la iii regard to them. The house l»emg in committee on the supply bill, Sir E. B Hamley, tnamher for Birkenhead, moved to increase the grant for volunteer- so as to meet deficiencies in their equipment. Mr. G.wchen opposed the motion and a vote wa* taken. The motion was carried, 135 to 103. hi the committee on supply Mr. Edward 8tanho[»e, secretary of state for Ware, explained the weenie of Gens. Ix»rd WoLsley and Sir Redver*bulier for mobilizing a home deieu*e f. -roe.
