Steamer Marios, recently sent to the Illo GraDde for tue protection of American interests, was on Saturday ordereJ to sail for Europe. The intention of ex Speaker Blaink to publish the Mulligan letters and real them to the House created a consider able revulsion of sentiment in his favor at the enpitoi. The talk among the politicians row Is. that Instead of Mulligm's testimony damaging Elaine, It will help Mm. Amojo the callers at the Wuite House to-day were the Secretaries of the Navy and Interior, Gen. Sherman, Senators Sargent, Cameron. Cragin, and Wadleigh, Representative Wells, PUtt, Elklns, Mor gan, Page, Wallace, Bennett, Phil Ips, Ham ilton, and Kidder Personal.?Chief Justice Cartter goes to Ohio this evening to accompany his wire, whose health demands a change of climate at this reason. ???? Mr. Paris, the artist, salIs on Saturday next for England, where he expects to remain until fall, when he pro poses to return to Washington and resume his profession. The Belknap Impeachment Trial ? The Senate, sitting as a court of Impeach ment, meets again to-morrow. Several Sen ators said to day that there seemed to be a tacit understanding that In case the mana gers on the part of the Home ask for a post por.ement until next fall, or concur In the request of the counsel for Belknap for a postponement, it will be granted. Raised it ? Hundred.?At the last mail lettings G. R. Harden, of Reidville, Ga., was the lowest bidder at f 249, on the route from Mount Vernon to Reidvlile, In tnat state. A contract was sent to him for execution at this sum. He returned It to the department properly executed with sureties, but wLth Mie amount erased, and the sum of #3?9skill fully inserted Instead. The attempt at fraud was however discovered In the department, end the acceptance of his bid promptly re voked. Naval cadets John G. Mason, of Ohio, and W. B. Osterhout, of Pennsylvania, who with six or seven others, were recently re quired to resign on the charge of stealing, were not accused as principals, but became Involved as witnesses before a board of tirst clHssmen to whom the examination hal been intrusted. They have asked the Secre tary of the Navy to reinstate them so that they may answer such charges as may be preferred against them. It is understood that their request wilt be granted. Exoneration of Mr. adams, Clerk of the House.?The sub committee ap pointed to Investigate the charges agilnst the Hon. G. M. Adams, clerk of the House, have been pretty thorough In their inquiries. The charges were that he received portions of the pay of men in the employ uauer him. > early every employee in the Clerk's oifi:e has teen sworn by the committee, and all have testified so fnr directly to the contrary of the charges. The committee are of the unanimous belief thai the charges haye not the least foundation. A question of U.MFOkM.?T.jo Seanf? Committee on Military Atrairs held a meet ing this morniDg and agreed to report ad versely tfce bill Intioduml by Mr. West, on the Ut Instant, repealing section 1.212 R1* \Ued Statutes, wuich provides that an offi cer shall not wear any uniform other than thbt of his actual rank. Mr. West's bill pro vdes that an ollii^er may wear such lusigula to indicate his brevet rank la the volunteer as well as in the regular service as may be directed by the Secretary of War, with the approval of the President. The Chinese Question - Mr. F. M. Pix ley, of San Francisco, had an Interview Willi Attorney General Taft this morning, in which he strongly urged the Intervention of the government In the Cninese-luestlon, In behalf of the citizens of San Francisco. He stated that the people there have become so incensed at the constant immigration of the lowest classes of Chinese into California that they have formed themselves into nu merous societies tooppo.se it, and that un less government aid is speedily granted they will take the law Into their own hands. The question will doubtless be brought before the Cabinet, where it will receive serious consideration. Suicide of the Late Sultan of Turkey?The Turkish minister In this city yesterday received a dispatch from tiie Ttir?Uh minister or foreign affairs stating that Abd nl Aziz Khan, the late sultan, wno for some time p?st unfortunately gave evi dent signs of mental derangement, having locked Llmself up yesterday morning in his apartments of the palace of Tcheragan. committed suicide by openlug the veins of bis arms with scissors, which he had con cealed on bis person. The dispatch aids that ail the ministers, the high officers, both civil and military, will be present at the luneral of his majesty, which will take place with the accustomed pomp and honors due to the deceased, whose body will be laid in the mausoleum of Sultan Mahmoul. A Sensation In the Home. MR. KLAINE TAKES THE FLOOR. Ex-Speaker Blaine made a decided sensa tion in the House to-day by his personal explanation relative to the Investigation of his connection with the Union Pacific rail road, and was frequently loudly applauded. It was not generally known that he was to speak, the fact being purposely kept quiet, In order that he might not be choked otT by the democrats. He arose to a question of privilege at about a quarter past oneo'clock, and everybody was at once on the qui vine, and the House became bushed to silence in a moment. He began speaking in a loud and distinct lone, audible ail over the hall, and sketched the investigation by Gen. Hunton's committee, and boldly charged the latter with endeavoring to do him injus tice by burying him under an Investigation into extraneous matters, which Inquiry Gen. Hunton confessed would take three months to finish. He spoke of the feeling against him on the democratic side since a certain debate early during the winter, and of the fact that be was being investlgat *d by ex-rebel soldiers. He said be had deded the committee to a contest to decide whe ther or not they were entitled to his or the private correspondence of any Ameri can citizen. He dared them now to the contest. (Loud applause.] He would like nothing better than suen a contest He was called to order by Mr. Hamilton, of New Jersey, aud was cautioned by the chair. When he came to the polntof pro ducing the ?-original package' of letters which he obtained from Mulligan, and held them up to the gaze of the Hou?e and gal leries, asserting that he proposed to rea i them to the House to silenoe s under an I cbtck surmise, there was another decided serration, and conslderabl applause. The Chat r threatened to clear the galleries an I Mr. Blaine in resuming, turning to his aide of ibe House, specially requested his friends to make no demonstration. He read the let ters rapidly, but in a clear tone, occasion ally slopping to make necessary explana tions. and as he concluded each handed it to M r. Sherman, his private secretary, who oo cupled a seat near him. It was generally *gre*d that his speech produced a most ex e?!h>nt impression and entirely relieved Mr. Blaine of the charge of having seized and retained eorrespondeocs which, If disclosed, would be damaging to him. But the mo?t decided sensation of the speech was when Mr. Blaine, advancing towards the democratic side, boldly charged Proctor Knott with suppressing a telegram from Jo slab Caldwell In Europe, entirely exonerat ing blm, (Blaine.) The greatest excitement at once prevailed, and members and persons in the galleries broke out In lond cheering and clapping of bands, wblob lasted for several minutes. The Llaiiie Roud Business. Two loiuuilUeea Investigating. After our report of theBialneInvestigation closed on Saturday? ?,,h*.r wa8 called, an<l Identified the pnbluheu letter from Mr. Blaine, a copy of which he said he had giveu to Mr. Adams and destroyed.the original and toe receipt when be settled with Bialne. He never knew why Bialne was able to make the offer to let them In so low, or whether he was acting for bimaeiror other parties; Bialne had always I old h i m he could not be Interested In these bords h'mself. and that his offer to them was an act of disinterested friendship; it was neverunderstood that Blaine was to be ben efitted by commission or otherwise; the let ters in the Mulligan package ma le no refer ence to the Northern Pacific railway. Mr. Mulligan being recalled confirmed this statement, and added that there was no letter referring to the Fort Smith and Little Ro*;k road In Its connection with Union Pa ciflc. Last Sunday he kdi Fisher selected the letters to be brought here; he brought them to relitih his memory. Bialne ha 1 on one occasion done tbe witness a slight Injury upon a purely private matter. 1*0 MEETTKG TO DAT. The sob Judiciary Committee, investigat ing the Bialne bond transaction, held no meeting this morning. Mr. Blaine having now, as his friends say, shown the country how an American citi zen can proceed to right himself when he cannot get justice otherwise, will. If he ean get the tloor to-day, read every letter he took from the witness Mulligan, from his seat In the Honse of Representatives.

The Heal Estate Pool Committee had Mr. Mulligan before It Saturday, and he was questioned as to the relations of Mr. Blaine with Jay Cooke A. Co and the Northern Pa cific railroad. It is alleged that at the time of the passage of the Northern Pacific rail road bill Jay Cooke iV Co. purchased for Mr. Bialne a quantity of the Little Rock and Fort 8mith raKroad bonds. Mr. Mu'ligan knew only of these matters by hearsay, and could give the committee no information. ? <?? The Charge Against Speaker Kerr. Testimony Before (be InT?stlgMtlng Committee To-day. Hie Speaker'* Statement. The Committee on the Expenditures of the War Department resumed their investiga tion of the Harney charges against Speaker Kerr this morning. Messrs. Clymgr, Dan ford and Blackburn, of the committee, were present; also Mr. R. K. Elliott, counsel for the Rpeaker. Mrs. Mary J. Murray testified that she had resided at 23'J >orih Capitol street, on Capi tol Hill, smce m'5, and kept a boarding house: In December, l!"6.>, Lawrence Harney hired a room at her bouse. In 140t> be also had a room there with his wife, aud both took their meals there. (Harney testified that he was married in l?tT ] Mr. Dauforu raised the point as to how far the committee should go into this inquiry. Mr. Blackburn said he saw no reason why tbe testimony should not be heard. If the w ltness came here and committed deliberate perjury, tbe committee and country should know it. Mr. Clymer said the testimony would show the character of the man, Harney. He thought it competent to prove general char acter. Mr. Danford said he did not think this was legitimate or proper testimony. After further dlscimsion tee testimony was admitted. Mrs. Murray said she would not have boarded Haruev h%d she not ttioug a that he was married to llie woman. U id* rstood hat Harney was au assistant doo keeper of trie House at the time. 1 >o not rem :jater the names of her other boarders then. Loptuin A. P. Green testified thai be never heard any conversation betweei Harney and Mr Kerr except the fewworis spoken when Harney introduced him to Mr. Kerr. Mr. Kerr said at that lime that he had no time then to speak. He said he would like to have fonie recommendations, but did not say that he (Kerr? would like that he *,t?reen) should get letters from prominent remoerats. Never accompanied H<rneyto Mr. Kerr's residence, and never au-horlzed Harney to buy au appointment from Mr. Kirr or any other Congressman; to speak plaiLly, witness would not attempt to cor i npt at y Congressman. Hal an latervlew with Hon. M>er Strouse, of Pennsylvania, but did cot say anything to htm about money. Never mentioned the transaction with Harney to any oue. Was not lavlted to the New York appraiser's office by Har ney. Went thereon his own volition to In form him that be (Green) bad received a subprena. Harney asked what he was in such a hurry to go to Washington for. Wit ness invited Harney to go to the depot with h'm, but Harney refused, saying be had an engagement with Judge Dlffenboffer, and that ne Intended to take legal advice. Har ney said "they bad been crowding him," or words to that effect; that there was a pres sure brought on him; that they bad blm at a meeting In tbe appraiser's office. Supposed that his patron, Win. A. Darling, and others were meant by "they." Never sent any let ters to Mr. Kerr by Haruey. Told Harney that Kerr said there was a vacancy In his (Kerr's) district. Kerr never asked witness what bis politics were. Has forgotten tbe character of the recommendations that be received; thinks that wheu he was in Wash ington before that, Harney suggested that the quickest way of getting an appointment was to purchase It. After that went to New York, and soon received a letter from Har ney telling blm to come on. that he had ar ranged it; witness did corde on and Harney introduced him to Hon. Myer Strouse ! laughingj, but nothing came of it. When Harney asked blm for money afterwards witness said he did not have #500 with him, but had 9460. Harney says "I'll take that and I will try aud get it for that." Mr. Kerr requesied that witness gel letters from prom inent New Yorkers, addressed to him per sonally. recommending him. By Mr. Danford:?My memory has been refreshed since a week ago in regard to the amount of money paid to Harney by con versation wlih and reading the testimony of Harney. Think tbat the balaueeof #?0 was sent to Harney through the mail; do not remember whether it waa by postal order or registered letter. Tbe witness then gave an amusing acoount of bis interview with Represeniail ve Stroase; said be found that Strouse had made an ap Eointment; bad a pleasant talk with him, ut did not put mucn confidence in the prom ises of Strouse. Also applied to a New York Congressman named Hon. Morgan Jones tor an appointment, but Mr. Jones put him off, saying be had appointed a one-armed man. Witness said to nlm, "I am glad to find that one Congressman looks out for tbe men who have done good service for the couutry;" was perfectly satisfied with it. There was noth ing said abour money in tbe talk with Mr. Strouse. who was a Jolly good fellow. Never spoke to any one except Haruey about money. Had strong doubts that Mr. Kerr was a party to any money matters. Judged tbat by his (Kerr's) vigorous examination of witness. Witness received for S4A0 what was worth one or two thousand dollars, and be waa not a man to kick. Witness said be did not believe tbat Mr. Kerr ever received one cent of tbe money, and never did think so. Never Intimated such a thing to Harney, as be (Harney) bad rendered blm an lm portant service, and made blm very happy. J. 8. Moore testified tbat on the I8th of April. lt*76, he was in the Speaker's room. Mr Kerr said be wanted to see him as soon a* be organized tbe House. Mr. Kerr than said be bad received a communication from New York setting forth tbat tbere was a rumor In New York tbat be (Kerr) had re celved #450 from Harney for an appoint ment of A. P. Green. Mr. Kerr said he re membered having appointed Green, who was unknown to him, out was well-endorsed, and a fine looking man. who bad done good service in tbe army. Mr. Kerr said be did rot know Harney, bnt remembered Green. Witness said be would go to New York and see Harney and ask blm what be knew about It. Wert to New York and aaked Harney what l.e knew about tbe matter, showing bim a copy of tbe anonymous letter. Harney said, '?! don't know anything about it; my llpa are sealed; you bad better go and sea my lawyer." Told Harney U was an important tblng. Harney said be knew Kerr and be was a fine gentleman; tbat bej Haruey) had been a doorkeeper In tbe House. Har ney asked tbat they botb so and eee his I lawyer, bnt witaaasoald he bad nothing to do wltb lawyers; tbat be wanted to learn what be (Harney) knew. Harney said tbe y?ing TJL. * ?*andal, and taat he was crowded; ?"">* Bliss. got hoi.I of it and was crowding him, and uat Bliss was a d-d f^K?rel ^ ? d-d ??*cai.

It is possible, how ever, that In tnis I may be mistaken. I de sire to explain briefly to the committee wiiv it was that I took the steps I did in referent toHanrey and Green In New York. When l received the anonymous note in an euvel ope poet marked New York, I real it and Vhft' j rfca,lt^1 the recollection or the fact that I had recommended a man named Green for a lieutenancy in the army who had been appointed. But I could recall no recollection whatever of Harney; I aid not know, therefore, how to luterpret the anonymous note except by the assumption that It meant blackmail, in which opiulon my friends almost universally concurred. Mr. J. S. Moore happened to be In the city at the time. Our relations had been exceedingly friendly fbr manv years,and my mind at once turned towards him, knowing him to be au officer In the New York custom house as the only man who coald likely secure some lnformotion about Harney. If not also abou t Green. Soon after the receipt of this no'c I attained torn the War department nil Mr. Green bad been dismissed the servicd ..n the verdict of a court-martial for dranK su ness.

Mr. Sherman called up the concurrent res- I olut.on proposing a common unit of money and a.vx>unta for the Cultei Slates aud t-reat Britain. Mr. Morrill (Vt.) said thla was too lm- I poiiant a bill to be passed la Uit morn In* hour. It was a bill which ought to be thor- I onghly discussed. Mr. Sherman said there was no proposl- I tlcn which had been more carefully con- I sldered by the Finance Committee than thla. I it was recommended by tbe Treasury de partment. It merely proposed to open nego tiations with Ortat Britain to Ascertain whether she would take our gold dollar or a common unit,equal to on^ fifth of her pound. I It won.d involve some change la the coin- I age of that country, and also some change inocrs, In making a slight reduction in the | value of our dollar. He did no not know I that tte negotiations would be auccessiui, but If so, the results would be very Impor tant. The close assimilation of the French coin to that of Gnat Britain would make it so tfcat Ave franca would be one dollar, and five dollars one pound. Mr. Morrill did not believe that Great Britain would consent, but il it did, there would be necessitated a change tn all our laws relating tooolnage, legal tenders, Ac. The resolution then went over, Mr. Sher man saying that he would call it op at au early day. Mr. Logan, from Committee on Military A trail*, reported favorably the House bill to retire Col. W H.

The unfinished business, being the legisla. II tlve, executive, and Judicial appropriation J bill, was taken up. The pending question was on the amendment retaining the sala ries and clerks of the Interior department; which was concurred Id. The amendment appropriating sionoj for rent for building for the Pension office and the Bureau of Education, and authorizing the.Secretary ot the Iaterior, If he can sec.ire a nre proof building for a rent not exceeding that paid for the Seaton House, to take the same. Mr. Morrill, of Vermont, moved a substl- I tote appropriating ?2?),000 to rent the base ment and the upper five stories of thefire j roof building at the corner of Pennsylvania avenue and 12th street, and a further appro priation of ?lo.ono to pay the ezpeases of fl removing the books aou papers of the offices aforesaid. Jlr Hamlin stated that the proprietor of the Beaton House had represented to him that much injustice would be done him by lemovlng from his building. If the govern- I ment continued to rent his building he was willing to make it fire-proof. Mr. H. then submitted an amendment, that the sealon I House shall continue to be rented if the proprietor makes it Are proof. Mr. Morrill said he did not wish to d"? la justice to any one, but the insecure condi tion of the Seaton house was well known. In case of fire, not only would the valuable papers be destroyed, but very likely two or three hundred of the clerks would perish. He sent to the de6k to be read a letter from the Commissioner of Pensions gelling forth the I advantages of the Shepherd building. Mr. M. also expressed the opinion that it would be a very difficult matter to make the Sea ton house flre-prool, and it was also very in- I convenient on account of being cut up luto so many small rooms. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. - The 8pcaker pro tern. (Mr. Cox) called the states for bills for reference, and under it tbe following, among others, were intro duced and referred: By Mr. Cntler (fc. J )?Authorizing the Bureau of Education to occupy the Armory building, and making an appropriation to fit np tbe same. By Mr. Vance (N.

Also, bill to amend the act to protect the sinking fund and to provide for the expenses of the government. By Mr. White (Ky.)?To smend tbe Revis ed Statutes to provide that pensions shall I commence from date of disability. Also, bill to provide for reducing the mini- J berof Representatives In Congress to two hundred. By Mr. Goodln (Kan.)?Authorizing the President to appoint a commission to ascer tain the losses of property In toe Indian ter ritory during the late war. TilE TARIFF. The House then proceeded to th? conslder 8' in of the resolution offered by Mr. A lams I (N. Y.) on Monday last, declaring that. In the judgment of the House, legislation af fecting tbe tariff Is at this time inexpedient, because it is apparent that all branches of manufacturing,mechanical and mining pur suits are at tills time greatly depressed, and that ail legislation which lenJs to embar rassment by the unsettling of values is un wise and injudicious. Mr. Morrison moved tbe reference of the resolution to the Committee of Ways and Means, which motion was agreed to?yeas. 114; nays, ?J. The following democrats voted against re. ferenee: Messrs. CIvmer, Cochrane, Harden bergb, Hopkins, Jenks, Maish, MuLchler, Powell, John Reiliey, Rollins (Pa.), Ross (N. J.), Stenger, Tet.se, Walker (N. Y), and Walsh. Otherwise the vote was partisan. Mr. Haralson (Ala.) offered a bill to de vote the proceeds of the sale of pabllc lands to purposes of education. Referred Mr. Neal (Ohio) moved to pass a bill to re peal the specie resumption act. A point of order was made that the bill could not he oonsidered oo tbe day of intro duction. The chair sustained the point of order, and on an appeal the decision of the chair was sustained. Mr. Blaine arose to a personal explana tion, and read tbe resolution of May 21, au thorizing the House to Investigate tbe sale of certain bonds to tbe Union Pacific rail road. That resolution, said Mr. Blalae, was evidently Intended to ascertain If any wrong act had been committed by the Umoa Pa cific railroad, and incidentally to ascer'ain tbe person with whom tbe transaction too* place. When Mr. Tarbox first introduced the recolatlon be (Mr. Blaine) was nol pres ent, and his colleague (Mr. Hale) objected. Afterwards Mr. Tarbox informed Mr. Hale that the resolution was not at all aimed at him (Mr. Blaine), but was intended to ascertain other facts. He was incredulous of Mr. Tar box's state ment at tbe time, and as soon as tbe investi gation began it became evident that it was aimed at him and blm only, and that tbe Union Pacific road was a secondary and un important consideration. He did not ootn plaln of this. Indeed be did not know that he had any reason to complain. On tbe first cay of tbe Investigation Harrison, tbe prin cipal witness, was examined. He was fol lowed by Mr. Rollins and Col. TbomM A. Scott, and tbe testimony of tbe latter com* pletely exonerated blm.
