with oil, have been kuawjt to heat and

there can be no danger. -
But the majority of our fires, in bams

they be prevented f Strictly just and

of duty, will pay as well as civility, which
is said to. be a fortune to any man who

Mr. Thurman, of Ohio, said there was

The sixtjr-fourth rule provides -that ou

Washington, December 14. The set
tlement of the Gordon-Conkling difficulty,
as made iu the executive session to-day,
was the unanimous conclusion of the gen
tlemen who signed it, and was approved
4-1. c i. a.,. o -
hp Mm oi uoui senators, it was
read in tlie fSeiiate in the presence of all
the witnesses to the transaction, aud met
so completely tin approbation of all the
Senators that it was ordered unanimously
to be entered on the records of the Senate.
This is the first entry of the kind since a
like action was taken in respect to the
celebrated affair lietween Senators Poin
dexter and Forsythe which was arranged
in the same way through the good offices
of Henry Clay, over forty years ago.
Senators Conkling and Gordon, ever since
the difficulty occurred, have declined to
converse on the subject. No commnnica
tqn? either verbally or in writing, passed
between the parties, certain Senators
having, immediately after the event, com -nieuced
the business of adjustment.
Among them prominently Senators Ham
lin and Ransom jrere especially judicious
aud effective in arranging the matter sat
isfactorily to both sides, Senators Gor
don aud Conkling were nqt in the Senate
chamber when the settlement was report
ed. Senate. Aftersome unimportant pre
liminary business, Mr. Butler, of South
Carolina, submitted the following: '
Jicsolved, That the committee on Privi
leges and Election is hereby instruct
ed tq inquire forth vrith and report as soon
as may lie, any threats, promises or ar
rangements respecting the existing or
contemplated accusations or criminal
proceedings againgj; any Senator, or if any
other corrupt or otherwise unlawful means
or influences have been in any manner
used or put in operation, directly or in
directly, by M. C.Butler, one of the Sena
tors from the State of South Carolina, or
by any' other Senator ojotljer person for
fhc purpose of influencing (he vote of

pf the safd M. C. Butler's credentials, qr
any other question at the late session of
the Spnafe, am that said .coinmjttee haye
power to send for persons and papers, and
to sit during the sitting of the Senate.
Mr. Butler said he submitted the reso
lution in pursuance of a notice which had
been previously given when his credent
tials were under consideration iu the Sen
ate. The resolution was substantially
that offered by the Senator from Vermont,
Mr. Edmunds, at that time, So farfisho.i
Mr, ilutler, was concerned, he desired, he
might say he demanded, that the fullest
investigation be made touching his con
duct in connection with hi,s admission to
Senate. When the Senator from Ver
mont, Mr. Edmunds, submitted his reso
lution to inquire into the charges, he read
an extract from theNew York Tribune.
He therefore hoped that the extract would
go before the committee and they would
examine the charges contained therein.
He asked for the present consideration of

Loxdox, December 15. The Post, iu
its leading editorial this morning, says it
is understood that the British Cabinet
yesterday had before them a circular from
the Porte intimating its williuguess to
accept the mediation of Europe. The
Porte asserted that the guarantees for
good government furnished by the con
stitution are far more advantageous than
the establishment of autonomous states,
which can only lead to the disintegration
of the empire. Tlie Post, however, con
siders that there are no present prospects
of au acceptance of the mediation, as
Germany is hostile thereto, aud any offer
ou the part of England is not likely to be
well received by Russia,
A Constantinople dispatch to the Dailu
Telegraph says the circular note dispatch
ed by the Porte to the signatories of the
treaty of 1871, commences by tlie state
ment that tho origin of the present impor
tant events is perfectly known. Tho Im
perial Government is conscious of having
dona nothing to provoke war, has done
everything to avoid it, and vainly sought
to discover Russia's motives in her us
gressive campaign. The Porte has shown
a desire for an improvement by reorgan
izing the judicial system and devUiug re
forms without distinction of race or reli
gion, according to the constitution, which
has everywhere been well receivod. A
partial reform is of no avail. The adop
tion of improvements iu one -part of the
empire only would be a premium to other
communities to revolt. Auy doubt as to
the execution of these reforms should dis
appear before the solemn declarations the
Porte now makes. The state of tho war
simply retards such reforms and is disas
trous to the country generally, d..tioying
the agricultural interests, killing iudus.
try aud rtmiing financial reorganizations.
Independent of these arrangements for
reform, what reason can there be for con
tinuing the war Russia has declared she
is not animated by a spirit of conquest.
The military honor of both sides must be
abundantly satisfied. What object can
there be in prolonging a contest ruinous
to both countries? The moment has ar
rived for thebelliggereut powers to accept
peace without affecting their dignity.
Europe might now usefully interpose her
good offices since the Porte is ready to
come to terms". The country is not at the
end of its resources and is still prepared
to fight in its own defence, It is ready,
moreover, to sacrifice all for tho inde
pendence and integrity of the fatherland,
but tlie Porte is desirous to stop the fur
ther effusion of blood, and therefore ap
peals to the feelings of justice which must
auimate the great powers, hoping they
will receive these overtures favorably.
The Plevna correspondent of the Times
telegraphs that ho believes the Russians
will not advance immediately but will
await the effects of the fall of that place.
The heavy guns which were already on
the Sofia, road, between Plevna and the
river Vid, have been a waste of labor if
