Keniieily of Olilo Uiiiiouiices nopublicnn SeiiatorH for Ti-uutine t.lio Houho Willi Coiiteiiipt iiiHl Stum|>H matt Quay aH tlio Itfixlorii .TiidaH Iscnrlot, Washtniwon, Sept.. 4.-In the senate a resolution ofEered by Senator Call ile-claring the shooting of Q-en. Bar-rundia an insult to the American flag, was referred to committee. The tariff bill was taken up and the sugar schednle discussed. Extended speeches on the goneral � subject of protection were mada by Messrs. Evarts, Voorhees and Gray. The evening session was devoted to speeches on the bill. The house passed a bill for the granting of leases at Hot Springs, Ark. A bill for a bridge across the Savannah by the Georgia and Atlantic railroad. The Clayton-Breckinridge case was taken up and discussed with some acrimony but without action. Mr. Kennedy, Republican, of Ohio, drew from the details of the Clayton-Breckinridge case the conclusion that a federal election law should be enacted. He reflec ted severely upon the senators who have been opposed to the Lodge bill. Continuing he .said: Speaking of myself I shall nail Tho llaiiiior of the Republioan Party at the mast head, with the doctrine which has become inseparable from the the history of its existence, and which demands the protection of the humblest citizen in the right to an honest ballot and the protection of life and property, and stand ready to defend that doctrine to the last. That the election bill has been killed by Republicans, or pretended Republicans, is true. Without fair treatment the bill which the house of representatives said was im-perativelj' demanded for the preservation and for the safety and stability Of its honor, and for the protection of the whole country against outrage, and intimidation, and violence is deliberately put aside without hearing and without opportunity of consideration. When, before, in all the past history of legislation, has one house of the congress deliberately put upon the other the mark of its dtsrision and contempt? The consideration of this measure Avas demanded by every sense of decency and honor. It was demanded by the house of representatives, that it might be purged of those who are enabled to en-�ter by reason of: violence and murder. The senate of the United States will learn that there is a bar of public opinion, and that at that bar it is-now being tried. To have been a senator in Tho l>tty� of Webster anil Cnlhuun was to have been part of a body that won and had the admiration of the peo-X)le, north and south. To have been a senator in the day.s of Wade and Fes-senden and Gritteiiden was to have been associated with men whose sense of honor would liave scorned the purchase of a seat and would have denied companionship to him whose name was tarnished over by even a suspicion of infamy or corruption. If the Roman toga had been dragged in the filth and mire of early centuries.the cloak of senatorial courtesy has been used to hide the infamy and corruption which has dishonored and disgi'aced a body which was once the proudest in the land. The cloak of "senatorial courtesy" has become a stench in the nostrils and a word in the mouth of ail the honest citizens in the land. It means a cloak behind which Isiiorunt and Arrugant AVealtli can purchase its way to power and then hide its cowardly head behind the shameless protection of '-senatorial insolence." It means a cloak shall cover up from the public gaze of an outraged people the infamies which demand investigating and which merit the punishment of broken laws and violated statutes. It means a cloak behind which petty party hucksters may barter away a party's principles and play "the demagogue m the face of the people. It means a cloak under which not only the timjd but the cowardly politician can cover, up his tracks and be either foul or fair, as the necessity demands. The hour for senatorial courtesy has passed. The ox team of senatorial progress must giveaway to the valor of a more enlightened, and progressive and determined age. Let the old and threadbare cloak of senatorial courtesy be hung up with the sickle and the flail of a by-gone day. ItoferrliiK to the Uetruyal of Chrlgf by Judas, Mr.Kennedy said: It waa meet and fitting that Jxidas sh'ould be paid the thirty marks of silver, it; was still a part of the eternal fitness o�tUinga that, naving been guilty of the basest ci-ime of allxbe centuiies, he;; should : go out and hang himself. History is, repeating itself. v The great party of the republici having lived for ! thirtyrfive: year^.has never yet assisted iniriveting.the shackles upon a human : being.  , Apd now, when it was expected r that.it would redeem its pledgtes and be, faithful to its history, it is {ibotit to proyefelse and oft repeated promises are not to be redeemed. It comes victorious from every field. And,if it fails now it finds in its own'party those > who, are faithless to the trust reposed in them. If it istobe crucified, it is only because its chosen leaders have bartered away the princi-i pies for the tricks and petty schemes of politiciiuis. ;The Judas Iscariot of Si,000; years ago, is to find a counterpart in ; :.Tb�iludiu Isoariot of To-Dny., The: Judas: who took the thirty pieces of silver and went and hanged himself has left an .example for .the Mac Quays that is well worthy of � their imitarion. Some time since I stood upon my place on 'this floor' and denounced a senator* from my native state because, when ^char^ed with corruption and' branded ':;nth infamy, he did not arise in his seat And".demand an ' investigation and in-, qniiythat/Should establish the purity of hisat^tlon^ and his personal: honor.

ThU Wan la a^epubliji^'u..^ ' amrnonesT lo reiuam in my seat silent because one'/'Vvho is accused of crimes and refusti^'to seek for vindication, is a Republican, and the Republican the recognized leader' ot toy party? Neither decency ov honor wqtild permit me to do so. I do not know whether the charges made are true or false, but 1 do know that they have been made by .-journals of character and standing, again and again, and I do know that in the face of the charges Matt Quay IIa�itemalnod Silent, and has not sought nor attempted to seek opportunity to Vindicate himself of them. I do know :that as a great Republican leader, he owed it to the great party at whose head he was either to brand them as infamies or to prove their falsity. He has not done either, and for this 1 denounce him. The Republican party cannot afford to follow the lead of a branded criminal. He has failod to justify hJinself, and though opportunity and liiiiple time have been given him, he remains silent. His silence under such .cirtiumstances is The ConfeHslon of Guilt. An honorable man does not long dally when his honor is assailed. He has delayed too long to justify belief in his innocence, and he stondsan accused criminal before the bar of public opinion. Under such circumstances, he should be driven from the [head of the party, whose very life his presence imperils. Tha Republican party has done enough for its pretended leader. Let him be relegated to the rear. It is no longer a question of his vindication; it is now a question of the lifi? of thp piirty itself. Tho KearHarse Ordered to AgplnwalL Washinqton, Sept. 4.-Orders were issued by the navy department for the United Statqp steamer Kearsarge, npw^ at New York,' to proceed at once to As-pinwall. It is supposed that this action is based upon rujuora' of a threatened railroad strike afthat place. . Information to that effecf^.has be'in:received at the state departmeiit from Consul Gten-eral Amazon at, Panama. The latter said he heard the riiinor through the consul at Aspinwall, and that ne had requested the Colombian authorities to protect American Interests in the eve; of trouble, and hii;d 'been assured thi it Would be done. 1 The Keply ti> fieii.: narrundia'8 Widow.

PiTTSBURO, Pa., Sept. 4.-A special from East Liverpool, O., says: Word comes from Walkers, a small hamlet situated between this place and Wells-ville, of a case of barbarous cruelty which occurred there.

While the parents were'away, as usual, the baby became fretful, and its cries so enraged the elder that he lifted its skirts and placed the little one on a hot stove and field it there until it was burned' in a horrible manner. When the mother returned home in the evening and heard from the other children what had happened she bared the boy's back, and, with a stout strap on the end of which was a buckle, beat him until his back was covered with blood and -bruises. Later when the father returned home, and was inform'jd of what hftd Occurred, he stripped the boy's le^s, took a lid from the stove and applied it to the bare limbs of the boy in several places, scarring him terribly at every touch. The township authorities, of the affair, had the parents New York Ceiians All Bight. , WASraNOTOif, _';Sept. 4.- Concerning the resolutioh^ijfepte'll by the Ne'^'Vork board of aldermen relative to the population of that city under the recent enumeration, and demanding a recount.
