Senator Aldrich (R. i.) took the floor a.nd stated that, the Democrats had at last thrown off all disguise and. disclosed that they had decided to prevent any legislation unless their wishes in regard to maintaining measures were acceded to. Senator Harris (Tenn.) said that if the Senate proceeded to ^ie consideration of the appropriation bill the minority would consent. Senator Aldrich, at the conclusion of his remarks, moved that the Senate proceed to the consideration of the resolution to amend the rules by the adoption of a plan of closure. A point of order was made on the Democratic side that the unfinished business was the motion to correct the journal of Tuesday's proceedings, and that as it involved the 'status .of Senator Aldrieh's resolution, it must be first disposed of. The Vice President indicated his desire to hear argument on the point, and the positions, on each side were stated by various Senators. After listening to arguments until 2 ?. m., the Vice-President ruled that Senator Aldrich's motion to proceed to ;he consideration of the closm-e rule in order, and overruled Senator Han-is' point of order. Senator Harris appealed. but the chair was sustained — yeas. 35, nays 30. Senators Teller. AYolcott and Stewart voted with the Democrats. Senator Aldrfeh- moved to proceed to the consideration of his resolution (clos\ire) and Senator Gorman moved to table it. The Vice-President submitted the question to the Senate, and a vote was taken on it. The vote resulted: Yeas, BO; nays. So. So the motion to table was lost, and the vote was taken on Senator Aldricirs motion to considqr the closure rule. Senator Aldrich's motion prevailed— yeas, 36; nays, 32. Senator Jones (Nev.) voted with the Democrats in ; opposition to it. , ... The vote of 36 to 32, taking- up the closure rule, does not prove that the rule can be adopted. The vote of 38 for taking it up would'not be sufficient to make a quorum if its opponents abstain from voting-. Whether the Republicans who voted against it will go so far in opposition as to break a quorum is uncertain. It is understood that four-or five Republicans now absent—Quay, Cameron. Chandler, and one or two more—will vote for the rule on its final passage. HOUSE. WASnr.vGTo.v. Jan. 22.—In the House Wednesday no business was done, the time being occupied in a wrangle over the approval of the journal. _ Mr. Cannon fill.) introduced a resolution in the House providing- that Saturday next at 4 o'clock, unless the Legislative appropriation bill shall have been reported to the House by the'committee of the whole, the committee- shall be discharged "from its further consideration with all amendments pend-. ing thereto, and the previous question to be considered as ordered. The resolution also provides that on Wednesday next, unless the naval appropriation bill shall have been reported to the House, the previous question is to be considered as ordered at 4 o'clock. The same rule is to apply also to the consular and diplomatic appropriation bill on Friday', January 30, and- to the military academy.bill on Tuesday, February, 3. The resolution was " refei-re'd to the committee on rules.. It is i'n line with the resolution tinder which the Republicans in the House on Wednesday managed to stop debate on the district appropriation bill. -WASHINGTON, -Jan. 22. — Business opened quietly in the House at the morning session. There was a thin attendance of Democrats. which lead to the belief that the latter meant to adopt their old tactics of last session. None of the leaders were present except Springer and McMillen. Rogers (Ark.) itiimediately after the prayer raised the point of no. quorum. • It was quite evident that there was no quorum, but the Speaker claimed to count 106 members. ; Rog-ers moved a call of the House, but the Speaker refused to recognize him. The clerk then began to read the journal in abbreviated form, but Mr. Springer insisted- upon a reading 1 in full and the Speaker was compelled to yield. The journal was read in full, and : after jtooe debate the District of Columbia,' appropriation was passed without fur- their difficulty, and-the'House went into committee of the whole on the naval appropriation bill,Jgeneral debate being- limited to four hours.

Hutchinson, the veteran Board of Trade man,' had suddenly withdraws from speculation ' has been a matter of comment among the brokers fof weeks, but it was not until rwxvr that the ca!«se of his retirement, •was known. It seems that Mr. Hutch-.' inson's family was dissatisfied with, his peculiar trades and asked him to retire. This the old gentleman flatly refused to do. and his son, Mr. Charles L. Hutchinson, consulted with his attorney- and some close personal friends as to the best course to pursue.
