- Those'' Washington 5 corresiwndejnts
who oest renect puuuc upwwu k
national capital, have much to say,ii
commendation of Mr. Thurman's Con
stitutional argument delivered in the
, Senate Thursdav on the . legislative, Ex
ecutive and, judicial j appropriation bill.
Thecorrespondent of the Baltimore
Sunl'tor instance, sayst i.hte
His speech was one deserving of much
attention and consideration, replete as
it was with logic and common sense.
Tn rfinlvinc to the soeeches of some of
the Republican Senators, and exposing I

very plain and severe language, but
which many will think not undeserved.
In the course of his remarks he drew a
very graphic picture of the evil effects
of the operation of the juror's test oath
and of the election laws, and instanced
in the most striking manner how these
laws were administered, simply and
solely for the benefit of the Republican
party and to carry out its partisan pur
posed and ends.
The Richmond Dispatch's correspond
ent goes even further. After mention
of the fact that Senator Thurman filled
the men's gallery, though there was no
crowd on the ladies' side, the speaker
being neither young nor handsome nor
the victim of a fashionable scandal, the
correspondent makes a full synopsis of i
.the speech, and adds.
He spoke until adjournment,, and lus
is uronounced one of the ablest speeches
of the session, and worthy of the distin
guished reputation of Ohio's Senator.
Among those who heard it was Mr.
Evarts, who occupied a seat in the di
plomatic gallery. Even Republicans to
night pronounce Thurman's speech a
? great effort, and Democrats say it is not
' only great, but will prove invaluable as
a campaign document.
The Philadelphia Times sti'ys editori
ally of the effort:
Senator Thurman spoke .yesterdaftin
a straightforward and forcible way on
the legislative appropriation bill, which
is before the Senate with several riders.
His statement of the party position with
respect to these questions was particu
larly strong, but it will avail nothing in
the final disposition of them, and can
only serve the purpose of making 6jpja,t
form for the distinguished Ohkr."JSena
tor. . ,
.In this way, however, .it . will -Serve
him an . admirable purpose.' If thp
speech is anything like ; the' great effort
that it is with one voice pronounced to
be, it will assuredly giye an active,, up
ward tendency to 'Thurman-stock and
may again place lihu where he was two
months ago at. the head of the . list of

paars to have captured the Southern
representatives in the Supreme .Lodge,
of the Knights of Honor vfhich met last
Tuesday in Boston. Our reasons for
saying so are found in the Boston -Her-:
ald,ot Thursday last, which gives an
extended account of a banquet of which
the visiting Knights were the recipients,
Wednesday evening, at the hands of the
members of Boston Lodge No.1 134.
Nearly every member of the Supreme
Lodge, we see, was present. The first
speech was madeiy Supreme Dictator
J. A Cummings? who was followed by
a number of "the 'brethren,'' representa
tives of all the differentsections of the
Union. ' The eleventh speech of the
evening is thus reported by the Herald :
C. R. Jones, of North Carolina, after
congratulating New England upon its
hospitality, said he wanted to say, as a
.Southern man, that the people oV New
England and North Carolina didn't un
derstand each other. The only obstacles
to their -.Love making were the politi-
cians, and, if we could kill about half of
them, the country would . get along
. splendidly., in 1775, when we heard
t aat American blood had been spilled
by Britishers, North Carolina stood by
Massachusetts in the struggle, and upon
visiting Bunker Hill Monument since
his arrival he was pleased to see still
there,- at the foot of the same, the pal
metto and the pine together. Blows
have been struck between the North
and the South, but the licks have al
ways, on your part, been struck breast
. high, and ours have been the same.
You have asked us to take nothing back,
neither do wensk you to take anything
baek,-but in the luture, I: can assure
you that New England shall not rival
us in pur love for Jhe old flag.

House. The House resumed, as the
business of the morning hour, the bill
to amend the law relating to the trans
fer of cases from the State to the United
States courts. McLane, of Maryland,con
cluded his argument in favor of the bill,
taking the ground that whenever a State
law or State sovereignty, be it much or
little, is well defined and understood,
and where indictments are found under
such State-law, they -should -not be -removable
to the Federal courts. He ad
mitted tbatitherc might have been:
necessity during war times for the en
largement of the Federal power, but
the country had now passed beyond
such necessity, and the judiciary of the
country should be restored to its, nor
mal condition. Of: M I I
Urner, of Marylandopposed -the bill
on the ground that onerof the sections
proposed to be repealed (No. 689) -was
virtually the judiciary act of 1789, which
gave force and effect to that clause of
the constitution which authorizes Uni
ted States courts to pass upon questions
in jcontroversv jjetfeeri aU;it$zeh of one
State and a cftizen of another State.1 He
admitted that there was some force in
the objection that insurance companies
sued in States where they have no legal
residence can have. their cases removed,
to-the great in jury of plaintiff suitors,
but he argued.,that such possibilities of
hardship" shojuhOiot be allowed Tcrin-.
terf ere. with tlie great "underlying' prin-
CTDle involved. i Y"

priyilege of free coinage to silver mined
in the United States was defeated yeas

'Springer's amendment. It provides that
the secretary of the treasury shall issue
and deliver to each depositor of silver
bullion certificate an amount equal
to the value of such bullion, and that
silver dollars coined from such bullion,
tosthe extent of forty per cent., of such
certificates, shall be held for the re

tificates so issued are to be redeemed at
par for all dues to the UnitedfStates,
and be used in payment of the current
expenses of the government and are to
be redeemable in standard silver dol
