(From our regular Correspondent.)
Washington, Dec. 15, 18S1. .
Senator CoekreU, as Chairman of
the caucus committee, reported to the
democratic Senatorial caucus this
morning a list assigning the democrat
ic Senators to position oh the newly
created Senate committees, which was
ratified by the caucus.
Affairs around this office of the Ser-geaut-at-arius
of the House are begin
ning to take on an ugly look. The
committee of the House, which has
been investigating the defalcation of
the absconding cashier, Silcott, in its
partial report tells about the loose way
of doing business in that office to sur
prise people, and everybody knows that
the committee discovered a good many
things which it has not told because
members and ex-members of the Hudsp
are mixed up with them. This mys
tery should be at once and without
delay swept away. Mat era have
arrived at the stage where it will be
far better to make public everything
