Tub pmsare ibat it beiog brongbt to bear apon CoDgrass to idopt measnrea for tbe imniedia'.e relief of the financial atric-geoey is aometblng phenomenal, beoaase it all aeeka the same relief, namely, in inflation of tbe cnrrenoy. Tb� delegation of Irieh Home liulers, wbiob is at present awingiog around the cirole in this oonntry, seems to be eojoy-ing itself. Why abonldn't it? Where-ever it goes it meets with ovation; it lives on the fat of the land and people are emptying their pnrses into its pockets. It is reported that Hon. M. F. Elliott will contest the election of Hon. A. C. Hopkins to the 52d Congress. Tbe latter waa fairly elected and will earnestly defend bis right to a seat he has been honestly chosen to oconpy. It may be stolen from him, but be cannot be ousted in any other way. Etbrt year sees new improvements in the oars need in transporting oattle to distant points. The Lehigh Valley road has jnat put on its lines tbe latest of these in ventions. The cars carry eighteen head of oattle; the latter can be watered and fed while the train is running, the water tntugbs and hay racks being built at tbe aide of tbe oar. With several millions in gold on the way here from Europe and with Secretary Windom*s decision to disburse about (10,-000,000 in bond purchases, most of which has already "been put out, and with Oon-gress considering means to increase the cIrouUting medium, there ongbt to be anbttantial financial relief here, and restored oonfidenee. REPUBLICANS III CAUCUS, The federal Eleotioa Bill Debate to Oon tinne for a Week, A PLAK TO FAOIUTATE BUSIHESS. TaER3 are many acres of land in cer-tii^ portion's ot this country which cannot be farmed and whiqb are next to valueless for any other purpose. Tbe grazing obtained from them is bomparatively valueless. If such lands bad boen planted in black walnut, impijoved chestnot or shell-bark hickory twenty five years ago they would to-day be yielding belter returns than any other acres on tbe farm, while their value from the timber on them would have been qoadru|>led daring tbe same time. K CITBiOt;^ atatement aomf.s from London about tbe eSect of the McKinley bill on shipments of goods to this country. Consul General Jubn C. New is quoted as saying that the aggragation valuation of gooda named in Invoices for this country is just as large now as before tbe McEinley bill ;went into effect. .The' quality and obaraeter of tba goods bate changed some-whiit. It was generally supposed that the McEinley bill would stop some kinds of impott-itions and that the value of goods Bhipped to this country would be lessened, but if London is an example that imprcs-fiioo was erroneous. Thebe Is but one interpretation to he put upon the deBoienoy appropriation which has been asked of Congress for tl20,000 to famish the supplies to tbe Sioux Indians under tbe agreement made with them thirteen yeara ago. It seems to indicate that these people have not received what was due them and what we promised to give them. If this money is needed to purchase full rations now, we can only conclude we have not been giv. Ing ibem full rations heretofore. Tbe claim of the lodiaus, as we understand it, is that -7hen tbe last enumeration was nade a full census was not taken, conse-qnently as rations are issued only to those on tbe list, there are many who draw nothing and tbe rations of tbe tribe are abort. .

Washington, Deo. 10.-About forty liepuhlican Senators were in caucua until a late hour to-night, endeavoring to agree upon soma plan for facilitating tbe transaction of business in the Senate. There was a thorough discussion of tbe present state of.affairs in tbe Senate, with which general dissatisfaction was expressed, but tbe western Senators were partionlarly vehement in their aondemna' tion, urging the necessity of immediate action to relieve, the stress i> financial circles, The friends of tbe Election bill, however, defended the management of that measure, and professed their willingness to adopt any feasible course to secure speedy action upon it. The result of the dellberatiana of the caucus was an agreement that tbe elections bill should be kept before tbe Senate for tbe remainder of thia week at least. With a view to exhausting the debating powers of the minority the Senate will sit thirteen hours daily, from 10 a. m. till 11 p. m,, with an intermission for dinner. If this does not avail by tbe end ot the week tbe caucus committee is to present its cloture resolution to another caucus next Monday. The committee submitted two rules tonight, ona for the general previous question, and applying solely to the debate on the election bill. They were charged to eanvaae the Senate and ascertain what strength could be counted on for tbe general rule. The opinion expressed at the caucua tonight was that all but two, or possibly three, Republican Senators would fall into line in support of tbe party policy. To meet the views of the silver Siiuators Chairman Erlmuudc was aothorized to appoint a committee ot six Senators to act with the Republican members ot the Finance Committee in devismi; someaabeme of Inanclal lelief lor the country. This committee will comprise Senators of divergent views, and is under instructious to report a hill to tbe caucus nrxtKouday. A-t that caucus it is underdtood tbe policy of the Republican Senators will Sually be determined. If nc action baa been reached ou the Elections bill and tbe cloture resolution commands the support of tbe united Re publican Senators, or all but two or three of there, then the cleture resolution will be brongbt forward. If tba committee fails in its undertakiag then the western Senators have been promised that the Elections bill will be laid aside and tbe Financial bill pressed to a conclusion. similes of students' work at tbe school it describes.

To Be Taken to Plaese and Cu-rlod Thranch - thaJnaalab Think Of building in a Glasgow shipyard a steamer which most ho uken to places again before 6,000 Afrioana can carry ber over 500 mllea of wild Afriean ooantry and float her on tbe inland sea ot Tiotoria Nyanza! A Glasgow corres-psndentofthe New York World writes that be saw this vessel on the stacks recently, and obtained a rough sketch of her. She Is the first of a British fleet which Messrs. A. & 3. Inglls bsve contracted to build for the British East Africa Company's service. This necessity for boildlDg the vessel so as to allow of taking ber to pieces again for overland porterage, makee ber progress very slow. After she is laiincbed and fitted, all the work which la now handled with ao much earn mast be undone. Before this ship leaobea ber destination she most be oarried througb miles and miles ot African foreste and jangles between the cosst and the big lake. It is estimated that 6,000 darktes will be required tor tbe work, with at leaat 2000 more as relay staff to replace tbe sick, the runaways and the anmanagea-ble. The new vessel Is commissionad by the Imperial British East Africa Company, ot which Sir Wlliam Haokinnon is President. This Company will float its own flag, issue its own postage stamps, and eoin its own currency. Tbe first steamer of the fleet is about 120 toss, builders' measurement. She is stoutly tinilt of steel plates, bolted with steel bolts on steel frames. Tbe bolta will be, of coarse, only rivitnd in their proper holes when tbe steamer arrives on the shores of the lake. Each plate, like every other part of the steamer, is limited in size to a load which a negro could carry oonvenlently on his head, and it is oalca-lated that with their loads, and in their places, the negro caravan will, when march^ig in flle, extend over three miles. The steamer, with its plating, is put together with bolts and nnts to be removed when the parts are taken to pieces knd picked aboard the railway cars which will carry the steamer in piecemeal to the docks at London, where it will be shipped on board tbe London and Ziczibar direct steamer. Tbotigb constructed for purposes of peace this vessel will be armed for rough fighting if it is necessary. ' She will carry an armament of two Maxim machine guns, besides small arms and a hose especially fitted to throw boiling water from the boiler among warlike natives. The iron plating of tbe vessel is, of course, proof against rifie or musket halls. On each bow will be fitted up au iron rifie and conning tower. Tbe engine will drive ber at a speed of ten knots, and with handsome and easy lines fore-and-aft tbe steamer should be easily driven. Her length over all is eiiihty feer, with sixteen feet beam. Tanned canvas sails will be sent with tbe steamer. From the Col �CO Mcwa. AN ENTHUSIASTIC W�LCOIE. Famell's Dublin Admiien ^Unharnen His Hone ana Draw Hia dab. HE SEIZES CBHIEH'S IHEWSFAFEB. In a note from Rev. E. M. Stevens, he says: "Oo March Oih, 1791, John Wesley died. On May 6th, 1791, Richard Parriott and Lewis Browning were sent by tbe Baltimore Conference to the newly organized Northumberland Circuit. Th's work then extended from Wilkeabarre to Hiles-bnrg and embraced a territory now having a membership of probably 20,000 served by seventy-five pastors.
