Messrs. Vent and Coke stated that, as members of the committee, they did not ooucur iii the report; and Mr. Hoar explained the effect of the action recommended. The matter weut over till today. Mr. J ours of Nevada then took the floor aud spoke in support of the hill reported from the finauoe committee authorizing the issue of the treasury mites on deposits of silver. At the outset he spoke of the general unrest prevailing throughout the country. The prices of all commodities, ho said. had fallen and continued to fall. Such a phenomenon as a constant and progressive fall iu the general range of prices bad always exercise*! so baneful au Influence on the proeperity of mankind that it never fai levi to excite al teat urn VV lieu a fall in prices wa* found operating on the products of all industries, when it wa* found not to be confined to any oue clima, country or race, but to lie diffused over th* civilized world—found not to la* a characteristic of any oue year, but to go ou for a aeries of years, it became manifest that it i-outd not arise from local, temporary or subordinate causes, hut that it must have its Genesis aud development in some principal of universal application What was it, lie asked, that produced a general lie* line of price* in any country* it was a shrinkage in the volume of money , relatively to the population ami business i*rosperity and speculation had liven stimulated at times by great yields from mines; aud when those mines were worked out, then came revulsion aud adversity. He wanted to speak of the natural ratio be- I tween gold and silver existing for ‘J,.MIO or I J,UUU yearn—a ratio of 15ly to 15 -and said that it was only situ* th* legislative pre script ion of silver iu Germany aud the United States aud its l»anistiiueut from the mints of Europe that any material change iu that ratio took place, aud that the pres cut divergence in the relative value of the two met ala was directly due to the legal outlawry of silver, aud not to any natural causes It had always lieeu the object of the creditor class to enhance the value of money by reducing its volume, ao that wheii the gold mines of California aud Australia were producing the largest yield it was proponed to demonetize gold The motive of demonetization In the case of told, as well as silver, was to aggrandize he creditor class of the world and to con riscate, so far as {Miscible, the rewards of (he hardy toilers. The demonetization of silver by Germany after her war with France, he said, inflicted greater evils on her people than her armies had inflicted on France; aud when this evil begau to have its effect, a veritable hegira of the German (adulation liegan to take pbu-e. The demonetization of silver by the United States iu 1873 he regarded as one of those historical blunders that were worse than crimes It was the child of iguorauce aud avarice, aud it had proved the prolific parent of enforced idleness, poverty ami misery. No letter remedy could be applied than the abso lute reversal of that legislation, aud put-tiag ba* k the monetary system of the country to what it was before 1873. if the monouietallisls would compare gold aud silver with commodities in gen erat tile) woald see how the metals had maintained their relations, not to each other, but to a1 pother things; they would bud that instead of a fall having taken place in the value of ailver, the change that had really taken place was a rise in the value of both gold and silver, the rise tieing relatively slight in silver aud being ruinously great iu gold. Discussing the bill (lending liefore the senate, Mr. Jones declared himself at all times and in all places a firm aud tin wavering advocate of the free and unlimited coinage of silver. Iu view, however, of the great diversity ni opinion on the subject and the (KMsibility that by reason of such diver sity the session of congress might terminate without affording the conutry any re lief from the baneful aud benumbing effects of the demonetization of silver, he had joined with other mem liers of the committee in reporting the hill. Net liming to Ilia argument, Mr. Jones 'aid that iii order that pri*-es might lie kept from falling, the numtier of dollars out shoo hi not be reduced iu nu rn tier, for (he purchasing power of each dollar de pend on the whole numtier out. At the auggestion of Mr. Teller, Mr. Jones pi tat (siuts I further remarks until to day. The senate theu went into executive session and a few moments later adjourned. IN THE HOENE. Washington, May IS —The house yesterday, in commit tee of the whole, resumed discussion of the tariff bill, (iu the read mg of the bill by paragraphs for amend meld.

Mr Anderson of Kansas offered bu amendment, providing that the president may suspend the rate of duty on au imported article wheu, in his judgment, the production, manufacture or sale of such article is monopolized or attempted to be controlled by auy trust or com bi nation. After au exciting debate this amendment was adopted -87 to 76—by a division vote Mr. Anderson and Mr. Owens af Indiana were the only Republicans voting in favor of it.

Mr. Niedringhaus u# Missouri proposed an amendment making commercial boraces acid dutiable at 3 instead of 5 cents per pound Rejected Mr. ('overt of New York move*I to strike out the clause imposing a duty of a quarter of a wni a pound on muriatic acid, aud followed his motion with an nrgu me ut against the bill as not tieing for the benefit of agricultural interests. Mr. Perkins of Kansas referred to the Democratic solicitude concerning the welfare of the farmers of Kausas He was satisfied that the arguments indulged in would not deceive Hie farmers. It was unfortunately true, he said, that for Ave yearn or more the agricultural interest* had beeu depressed. Kvery day that lievelaud was president farms depreciated in value (applause on Republican aide.) Bnf there were signs of a removal of that depression by the inspiration of the proposed legislation of a Republican coagresa Mr. Breckinridge of Kentucky ridicule*! the speech made by Mr. Perkins and expressed his gratification that with the fanners of Kansas everything wa* lovely. He ho|ied that the farmers’ alliance would accept the assurance that everything was lovely. After fun her debate Mr. Covert’s amend inent was rejected, as well as another to strike out the duty on sulphuric acid. Committee then rose and the house ad jeu rued THE CORNER IN SILVER.

Presa about the published report that there was a corner in silver iu this country, and that in consequence he was buying silver bullion abroad, said: “I see that I am quoted as saying that the government was buying bullion in Ijotidon and storing it in the assay office at New York, and that it in also storing silver in the West aud burning certificates. The correspondent evidently misunderstood me. What I did say was that ailver was tieing bought in london and shipped to this country and deposited at the assay office at New York, for fine bars which were being stored by private parties. The government has bought no silver in london, nor ha* it stored any silver in the West. It is not storing silver at all, aud of course is not issuing certificates on silver bullion, a* there is no law authorizing such issue. “I did “ay that but little silver is being offered the government for sale, aud that at a price considerably above the market price and a I love tire price at which certificates on silver bullion deposited iu the western national (tank* are beiug sold in New York. In regard to a corner in silver I -aid that I did uot know anything aliout it.” Waylaid and Murdered. Glens Falls, N.

The address wan presented by Mr. Glad Htoue who, iu the course of his s(iecch, re fermi to the uuti-Uhiueae legislation iu the United States. Owing to the ambiguity of the legislation on the ('bines* question, he said, he was not altogether clear whether the Aptericau government taxed ('kinase who entered or barred them all out. Auy way, he thought that the C hinese were to be dreaded more for their virtues than their vices, which he did not lielieve to be uearly ho extensive or flagrant as the grounds taken for their exclusion alleged. In an interview subsequently, Mr. Potter declared it to be bis conviction that the tariff question would again be the issue in the presidential campaign in America in 18IF1, when the free traders ar tariff reformers would, iii all probability, be successful.
