NEWS AND VIEWS AT THE CAPITAL. The (Jreenbackers Backing and Filling Small Margins for Hit Majority the House Committees the Neic Officers of the Senate. Special to the Richmond State. "Washington, Mcrch 26. Trouble from the Greenbackers is pretty sure to come, if the fourteen adhere to their resolution in caucus to vote together upon all financial questions and against attaching political amendments to the appropriation bills. That would leave the Democrats with a majority of only three votes, including Speaker Ran dall's, for Hendrick Wright has gone back to the Greenback caucus again. Most of them say they would vote for the amendments to the election laws if presented separate from an appropria tion bill. They and the Republicans have resolved not to pair with the Democrats, and that will add to the embarrassment of the majority, if strictly adhered to. Counting them with the Republicans the vote would stand 145 to 143. They cannot afford to take too extreme ground against the Democrats rs ; .accessions: to their strength cannot reasonably be expected from the Republican party. They ad mit that, but say they mean to force the Democrats to give them fair play on the currency question. Politicians are beginning to speculate upoiL..lbe jjrobable composition of, the House committees, partfcularTy-'ways and means arid appropriations. Atkins talks as if it were a foregone conclu sion that he will be re-appointed chair man of appropriations, out ether people are not so sure of that.

By the rules 'the House has the right to appoint the Jcommittees, and it may assume that right by reso lution, to proceed to appoint them.

Raleigh Observer. The act to raise revenue makes some changes, a note as to which may be more easily understood than the wrhole law would be. The poll tax is reduced from 89 to 72 cents. That on real and personal prop erty, moneys, credits, investments in bonds, stocks, joint-stock companies or otherwise, is reduced from 29 to 24 cents, to be applied as follows: 12 in stead of 14 cents to the general fund ; 6 in place of 9 cents to the insane and deaf and dumb and blind asylums ; 6 cents as heretofore t6 the penitentiary. The tax on billiard saloons is as here tofore $20 on each table, but hereafter every place where liquor is sold is con sidered a billiard saloon. Retail liquor dealers are to pay a monthly license tax of 5.00 instead of $3.00, as now ; and retailers of malt liq uors only $3.00, instead of $1.50, as now. And "any grocer, druggist, dealer or other person who shall sell spirituous or malt liquors, wines or cordials, in any quantity, if the same or any portion thereof shall at any time be drank upon the premises where such liquors, wines or cordials are sold, shall be considered to be a retail dealer within the mean ing of this section." The merchants' "privilege tax" is changed by repeal of the $5.00 item. Every person or pompany running sleeping cars upon any railroad in this State is to pay $50 yearly for even,- car so run, and shall make returns and pay to the State treasurer. Penalty for non compliance, $2,000. Tobacco warehousemen, instead of a license tax of $50, are to pay $15 and 1 per cent, on gross amount of their com missions on all sales of tobacco in ex cess of 300,000 pounds. Any merchant, dealer or agent selling sewing machines shall pay a tax of $10 in each county, but the payment of a license tax of $200 to the State Treasu rer will enable any person, company or manufacturer of sewing machines to peddle them in any county, employing any number of agents, free of county or municipal tax. A peddler's license tax of $10 is here after good for a year instead of six months. Itinerant lightning rod men are to pay $50 instead of $10 for each county. Drummers are to pay $100 annually instead of $50. The liquor dealers' drummers are to pay $200. Marriage licenses are reduced from $1.00 to 50. On February 27, 1879, it was enacted that the children of colored parents bom at any time before the first day of January, 1868, of persons living togeth er as man and wife, are legitimate chil dren of such parents or either one of them, with all the rights of heirs-at-law and next kin, with respect to the estate or estates of any such parents, or either one of them. From the same date it has been law ful for any clerk of a court of record in any other State to act as a commission er of affidavits and deeds, exercising the .same powers as-heretofore-granted to regularly appointed commissioners for the State. It is alleged in the preamble to an act to regulate marriageable kinship, that "many persons in this State, in estimat ing what degree of kinship is nearer than first cousins, compute kinship by the half-blood as being only half so near as the same degree of kinship by the whole blood." "Wherefore, on February 27, 1879, it was enacted that "hereafter, in this State, whenever the degree of kin ship shall be estimated with the view to ascertain the right of kinspeople to marry, the half-blood shall be counted as the whole blood: Provided, however, That nothing herein contained shall be so construed as to invalidate any mar riage heretofore contracted in case where by counting the half-blood as the whole blood the persons contracting such marriage would be nearer of kin than first cousins; but in every such case the kinship shall be ascertained by counting relations of the half-blood as being only half so near kin as those of the same "degree of whole blood."

Mary Oliver Whose Hair has Turned Gray Thronsn Mortification. From the Philadelphia Times. Washington, March 20 There is a lady in Washington who might justly bring a suit against both plaintiff and defendant in the Oliver-Cameron case for consequential damages. To the best of my belief the only real sufferer from wounded feeling in the matter is an other Mrs. Mary Oliver, who is utterly innocent of aught save the misfortune of having the same name as the plain tiff and having been rightfully appoint ed from Pennsylvania to a clerkship in the treasury department at the instance of Simon Cameron wThen Senator. He knew her husband, who was one of the staunch supporters of the clan Cameron, and advised him to run for Congress. Mr. Oliver did so and was defeated, and lost fortune and courage to battle wdth life. He died not long afterward, and his widow was appointed, at Senator Cameron's instance, to a clerkship in the office of the comptroller of the currency, which she has for several years filled with credit to herself, and has earned the esteem of all associated with her. The similarity of name with that of Senator Cameron's pursuer, as well as the fact that the other was also appoint ed at his request to a clerkship in the same department, has, from the time the suit began, two years ago, until nowr wrought untold 'wretchedness to the innocent woman. Xaturally she has been perpetually confounded" with the litigant. The day after the suit first commenced newspaper men began in sisting on interviewing her. When she has denied being the plaintiff she has rarely been believed by strangers, and she suffers in consequence. Her hair has actually turned gray since the suit was instituted as a result of the con stant mortification to which she is sub jected. She has told my mother more than once of nights of agony following the blunders which have pained and humiliated her whenever she has been brought in contact with strangers, and the not surprising refusal of those un acquainted With her to credit her de nials of being the "Simon-pure" Oliver. It certainly is a very hard case, and it seems to me the least the clau Cameron, which possesses so much influence with the Pennsylvania Legislature, can do is to have her name changed. FROM WASHINGTON". Report of the Democratic Committft Aiioptnl in Caucus Possible Action of lb Opposition. TSpecial to Baltimore Sun. Washington, JMarch 2tL The pro ceedings of the joint Democratic cau cus of the two houses this afternoon were entirely harmonious, although wide differences of opinion were devel oped. When the report of the caucus committee was presented Senator Bay ard made a speech of some length, m which he reiterated the views which he had several times expressed in opposi tion to placing political legislation on the appropriation bills. In reply to him the point was made that the only feasi ble plan of securing the legislation de sired, was througli the appropriation bills. Some who were present objected to making any offer of compromise, as presented in the report of the caucus committee, and thought that the Demo cratic majority in the two housesshould take and hold'to the position assumed by the last House, and insist on the ab solute and unconditional repeal of the election laws. It "was contended that the President would be just as likely to agree to this as to the modified provis ion. However, the report of the com mittee was adopted by an overwhelm ing vote. In regard to the matter of enacting legislation outside of the ap propriation bills there was no decision reached, but most of the leading Sena tors and members are opposed to it. Those who favor general legislation ar gue that the Senate will probably be oc cupied a week or ten days in debating the appropriation bills, as it is accepted as a foregone conclusion tnat the Re publican Senators will oppose the polit- hical legislation to the last moment. Lengthy and exciting debates may therefore be looked for in the Senate. X While these debates are going on it is argued the House may as well proceed regularly with business. But, really, it will be much better for the House, while it is waiting on the action of the Senate, to adjourn from day to day. Otherwise it may get into mischief and disgust the country. It is expected that the two appropria tion bills, the army and the legislative, executive and judicial, w7ill be intro duced tc -morrow, and the Democratic programme should be to pass them with little or no debate. As there is no previous question in the Senate the Re publicans in that body will have all the opportunity that they desire to ventil ate their views and make party capital. It is rumored around to-night that if the attempt is made to-morrow to in troduce the appropriation bills objec tion will be made by one of the Green back members. An objection could not consistently come from the Republi cans, as they have proclaimed daily their opinion' that the appropriation bills should be speedily passed, and Con gress should adjourn. If objection should be made the bills cannot be re ceived, it is claimed, under the rules of the House. The purpose of those who contemplate making objection is said to be to force Speaker Randall to at least appoint the committee on appro priations at once, if not other commit tees. On the subject of the committees there is great curiosity and anxiety, and the Speaker realizes that he has an ex ceedingly difficult task before him. Veliow Jack Haunts the Gulf Cnas i LNew Orleans Times. From reliable sources of information, it is apparent the citizens of Mobile have determined upon a most rigid and early quarantine, should there be the least ap pearance of fever in this city the com ing summer. In fact the Mobilians have voluntarily resolved themselves into what may be termed a quarantine brigade, and the slightest report started in regard to sickness in New Orleans and vicinity will bring the organization into active service, like a body of min ute raen. There was a rumor current in Mobile on Monday last that a large number of the citizens of New Orleans had left for the North on Sunday, in consequence of the arrival of a brig from Rio at quarantine with fever on board.
