Pa.) offered an amendment to section ]. diive'.ing that bonds of the denominations of S.-.'U. ¥">0 and $100 be ofJ'ered for sale at Mich national banks as the secretary of the treasury may direct. On this amendment Mr. Sickles (clem., >>'. Y.) declared his belief that the honor and-welfare of the country were involved in the passage of the bill, lie had frequently been compelled to differ from the chief executive, he said—the president elected by his own party—but he forgot all these diU'eivnces in his admiration of the manly, brave aet.ou of the president in this financial crisis of tho country. i L wa.s worthy, he said, of the most illustrious of the chief magistrates. Then most impressively Gen. Sickles closed: "If a long life, given largely to the public service, entitles me to appeal to my associates on the floor to hold up the credit aud honor of our country, in God's name, I take the opportunity now to do so." [Applause.] Mr. IJowers (rep., Cal.) said he was opposed to the bill aud to the amendment. He did not believe in fastening the gold standard upon the country, nor in the sale of bonds. Mr. Stockdale (dem., Miss.) offered as an amendment the declaration contained in the bill repealing the purchasing clause of the Sherman law, that all the moneys OA the government should be kept at a parity, but it was ruled out on a point of order.

Mr. Bell (pop.. Col.) moved an amendment to make the bonds payable in gold or silver without discrimination against either metal. An amendment offered by Mr. Bland to redeem the treasury notes issued under the Sherman law in accordnnce with section 3 of that act and to coin the seigniorage of the silver bullion in the treasury into standard dollars was defeated by a vote of 114 to i!00. .At 3:30 o'clock the bill was reported to the house and all the amendments agreed to in the committee of the whole were adopted. Efforts to get the yeas and nays on the amendments relating to the national bank tax and circulation were unsuccessful. k J'lck» Up the Ki-mulim of I'HS'.onsnrs of Ill-Fat«<l Kibe.
