6 WASHINGTON. A Parliamentary Coup d’Etat in the House of Representatives. Kelley’s Tariff Bill Thrown Overheard and Dawes’ Pet Measure Comes to the Surface. Favorable Action in the Senate on the Steamship Subsidy Propositions. House Action looking to the Payment of Long-Pending Cotton Claims. Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribane. STEAMSHIP SUBSIDIES. Washing ton, May ?.— The Senate i>roo*i>iy 1 vent as far to-day In granting suoat-u-s lor steamship lines to foreign ports as it will be willing to go during the present cession. Taevoteon | the proposition to Increase the subsidy to the Tadfic Mail Steamship Company to $1,000,000. In consideration of the establishment ol a semimonthly service, agreed to in Committee of the ■Whole on Friday last, was ratified In the Senate to-day. and a compromise, offered by Senator Fenton, giving to the Brazilian line of steamers $400,000 a year for a semimonthly service, was also agreed to. The successor these two projects, the latter of which was defeated in Committee of the Whole yesterday, encouraged the friends of the Australian line to move that subsidy again, as an amendment to the Post Ofiloe Appropriation bill, but alter several hours of debate It was laid upon the table by the decisive vote of 27 to 20. It is the general belief that the Pacific Mail subsidy, for a eomi-monthly line of steamers to China and Japan, will either be passed by the House or agreed to in the Conference Committee. The fate of the BrszllUu subsidy is more doubtful, though ite friends feel very sanguine of saving it. The New Orleans and Central American Steamship Lin© shared the same fate with the Australian line. THE TARIFF QUESTION Ef THE HOUSE. There was an exciting struggle over the tariff to-day in the House, which resulted in the most remarkable and complete parliamentary victory that has been won within the memory of the oldest member on the floor. The Burohard-FinkelnbuVg bill was first slaughtered by a combination between the high Protectionists and the representatives of the tobacco .interest, arranged and led by Ktlley, Dawes sitting by and seeing the worh done v.ith perfect tranquility; but, as soon as the bill had been decapitated, and was dead beyond all Question, Mr. Dawes rallied the Revenue Reformers and moderate Tariff men, routed Kelley, captured his tohacoo allies, and massacred his bilL He then had the field to himself, and got a new bill before the House emboflyisg his own views, and thus became at once master of the situation, with the leadership of the House again in his hands. The whole affair occurred in less than two tours’ time. The struggle opened as soon as the House went into Committee on the Tariff bill. Kelley, who had completed his bargain with the tobacco men yesterday, by agreeingto cany his Protectionist followers in favor of a redaction of f,o per cent on the tax on tobacco, counted twentyfive recruits gained by the arrangement from the rants of the Free Trade Democrats, and was confident of victory. He moved to strike out the enacting clturo of the bill, and carried his motion, on a vote by tellers, by ayes, 95; noes, 75. The rules obliged the Committee of the Whole to forthwith rise QTifl report the decapitation of the bill to the House. It was then in order to move to recommit the bill to the Ways and Means Committee. This motion Kelley made, with instructions added, that the Committee should at • once report hack his hill as a substitute. H© was too confident to he cautious, however, and forgot to demandthe previous question. Dawes instantly perceived his opportunity, and moved to amend Kelley’s motion by substituting instructions to report back the original bill of the Committee, which had just been killed, with hta amendments engrafted upon it, making the reduction in the tariff on manufactures of iron, steel, copper, woollens, cottons, and several other articles 10 per cent. Pinkelnburg moved to amend the Dawes amendment so as to make the reduction 20 per cent. His motion was lost by a vote of 75 to lio, Kelly throwing his combination solidly against it When the question recurred on Hawes’ motion, Kvlley’a tobacco recruits became demoralized. They feared to go hack to their anti protection constituents with a record of having voted against the small reduction of in per ceat of tariff, and, after wavering a little, they turned their backs onKeUeyond deserted to Dawes in a body. The ultra Revenue Reformers eaw their chance ol revenging themselves upon Kelley, and relied to the support of Dawes’ motion, which was carried by ill to 77. Kelly was astonished at the unexpected result. Ho said that some of the members did not understand | the question, and rushed over to the j Democratic- tide to find what was tie matter with his new allies. He feurd that they had abandoned him with their e- es open and not through ignorance, and returned to his seat with an expression of disoomji xue that raised a general laughter, in the midst of which Garfield esid “Thetrad©is gone up.” It required anorher vote to complete Dawes’ victory,and this he carried by 117 yeas t075 nayes. Hefoi tbwi'h reported hack his amended billin accordance with the vote of instruction.and gave j ctioe that he should call it up to-morrow. Mr. Dawes, by this splendid parliamentary trinmph, has completely turned the tables on all his antagonists In the Ways and Means Committee. He has discomfited alike the high-tariff men and the free-traders, killed both their lulls, and, instead of] being a guerrilla, skirmishing with the Keßy and Burchard factions, he now controls the field*, and both factions ere anxious to serve under hie command. The bill he has now before the House is in its Tariff provisions nearly identical with the bill the Senate passed some weeks ago. which the Hons© tabled, and is almostbevond question substantially the legislation upon the tariff which will be formally adopted by both muses before the session end COTTOK CLAIMS. The recommendation of the Appropriations I Committee thattha Morrill amendment to the j Deficienov Appropriation bill bo non-concurred 1 in was agreed to by the House to day, and the amendmr-nt offered by the Committee adopted, making an appropriation to hare the claims allowed for reimbursement on account of cotton J illegally taken and sold after the SOth of June, J 1805, which have been allowed in the Treasury J Department, but which have been watting pay- j inent because tie rnnd arising from the sale of captured cottou was turned into the Treasury in 1670. The House, therefore, accomplished two* things by Its action today. Under the act of isos it was prescribed that pernors whose property was tikcn bytne Government and soM, and the proceeds turned into the Treaf-my, might receive back the proceeds on proof cf loyalty. The Court, It will be remembered held that a pardon of the President was 1 snfllelent proof of loyalty. The Drake amendment provided that a pardon, on the contrary, was evidence of disloyalty. This amendment wi* decided to be unconstitutional by theSuprame Court, but notwithstanding this decision the Senatc*passed the Morrill amendment audjmbatitute rearming the provisions of the Drake amendment. The other thing accomplished by to-day s action was to direct the Secretary of the Treasury to settle the cotton cases before him,land provide the means for their payment. The Treasury cases etc of a afferent character from those in the Court of Claims, and arise In this way: An order was issued directing that no more cotton belonging to private persona should be seized alter the soih of June, 1865, but, in, spite of this, in the seizures of cotton that belonged to the Confederacy that were made, a good deal of private cotton was taken. The owners of tuchco'.ten. made claim for restitution. Some of them have been paid, and the claims of others have been settled, and have fceen waiting for an appropriation to be paid. Butler and Poland made an effort to send all these cases to the Court of Claims for anew decision, which would involve a delay of years. Their amendment was beaten, however, by a decided majority. rro the Associated Prees.l DIED. ■sT.iFnn-T.TOK, May 7.-James Dunlop dies yas e«rday in Georgetown, of apop'exy.

PERSONAL. New York, May 7.—Thomas Buchanan Read, the poet and artist. Is lying at the Astor House - very low with pleuro pneumonia. Ha arrived In Ntw York on the Beotia, one week ago, somuoa J enfeebled that be was carried to the hotel. One * month ago he left Rome, accompanied by his lx wife, to return to Cincinnati. Daring the voy fo age acroiß the Atlantic, severe pneumonia prostrated him, which continues, complicated with other alarming disorders. Though greatly 1 reduced In body, his mind Is clear, atdhlsrulingwiahatpresenfcis to be able to reach his relatives in Cincinnati. His physicians have scarcely any hope of his recovery, and, though tbe patient was slightly easier to-day, n tbt y are not unprepared for a rapid change for the worse at any momtnt. AN OLD COUNTERFEITER. e Patrick Kelly, ovfnoyears old, who has been v engsged in counterfeiting most of his life, gave SIO.OCO ball recently to answer a charge of having a counterfeit money with intent to pass It. j Somo of tho money was found in T bis possesion, and some at his I residence, a bundpome brown stone-front houao on Thirtieth street. Just before ho obtained bad j he attempted to commit suicide by cutting hi* . throat, injuring himself severely. He was at- ■ tcsied again to-day by a policeman, who thought his conduct on an up-town street corner suspicious. The officer searched him, and lonud five counterfeit two-dollar notes, purporting to be ietutd by the Ninth National Bank, and a number of coun f erfeit ten-dollar notes, purporting to be issued bv tie Farmers* and Manufacturers* Back, Poughkeepsie. Kelly admitted tha'. he had notes with the inteai.l oU °* selling them, saying; “Igotthomforayonng teaJ» a^a was going to show them to him to see whether they would suit or not.” He Is paid to have been extensively engacod for years in soiling small quantities of counterfeit notes to professional patters of same, being tbe agent in supplying from the manufacturers. Tie was committed this mornlr gin default of SIO,OOO, and will probably fall to got fresh sureties. THE BOGUS LORD GORDON. Jay Gould's suits against the bogus Lord Gordon were up In Court again to-day. The only point of public interest developed was the fact ' That Gould sent a cable message to London on the loth of April, saying; “A person calling himself Lord Gordon, alias George Gordon, afio* .

New York, Mav 7.—There wa* a fair attendance to-day at tho anniversary meeting of me American Temperance Commission, held in Stemway Hall. Aaron M. Powe.*l presided, and made the principal address. In aduding to tbe Cincinnati Convention, he said it was remarkxb!© that there was no temperance in the platform, although the chief man placed npon ic was a temperance man. Yet the absence of snohaplank was not remarkable, perhaps, after all, when, according to report, the second man upon the ticket was a wlne-blbber. An .address to the country was adopted, in which State Legislatures are urged totakeactioninfavoroftotal abstinence, andreccimijendiDg the appointment of no man to office who is not a temperance man. KesoUiti ms were adopted advising clergymen to substitute w-htfr Jor wine in the oomn.union service, and to extend tho right hand of fellowship only to total abstinence mtn and women. GOULD AND GORDON, The litigation between Gordon and Jay Gonio, in which each party ia plaintiff and oaoh de fomlant, two suits having been brongnt. came up infore Judge Brady this morning. Gordons counsel said that there were three motions; -one suit by Gordon for injunction, and to recover certain stocks and bonds which ne claims from Gould; one in the suit by Gould t<gainst Gordon, made by Gordon to vacate an • older of arrest, and, third, a motion of Gould In another suit, to examine Gordon for the purpose of preparing a complaint. After a little discoe- Blon it was agreed that all motions should be heard together on behalf of Jay Gould. Mr. Root read the first of Gould’s affidavits, already published, denying positively the accuracy ot the averments of Gordon’s affidavit as t-> the transactions between them; that Gordon held with him any transactions in “puts” and “calls,” etc., etc. A number of very Tolnmmouß affidavits were then read, and after some discussion the Court gave Gordon a week to nut in his responsive affidavits, wtpm. both he and Gould are to be present to submit to an examination.

In this State, commenced by attachment, -was conclusive as to the par actually brought -within the joriaiiotlen ot a a proper Court, until reversed Upon this baaia an action of Daniel Heasty & Co. ‘was defended by Samuel Bliss & Company, before Judge Eogers. The Supreme Court has now, however, explained the matter, finding that circumstances alter cases. The opinion was written by Justice Walher, 80 follows; It appears that appellees (Bliss * Co.), who were trafleisinWaraualliown, la., ordered of appellants (Besaty A Co ), who aero wholesale grocers la Chicago, through their travelling agent, a number of bairols of dried fruit It was to bo of choice quality, and appellants were so advised by their aveuc.

Subsequently they sued out a writ i t attachment against appellees, had it levied upon ihelrproptrty gave notice, and, no defense ucinx ni»-ce. at peilants r« covered Judgment for than sum and costa, and sued out execution and sold the prop ti ty attached lor a tnllo over the amount of the j ad<- mint ana comb; thereupon T-bmgut thti bUitfoi-msllcloUhly aim wrongiully sueiog nut the writ of attachment auo recovered (he judgment from -which this apj-e I was taken.

It it ahoa d occur that a note should ho forged against a rtrson absent trom the State or a cuim should bo made the basis of an attachment, and allot the proceedings should be regularly cononuted in jurtgment- and a sale of the property. it it should be held that the Judgment wan conclusive until re* v-rsed, would be to bold that bv fraud . nd false ore. tenets in asserting such a c aim, that a man might be snipped of Lis properiy without remedy. It cannot surely be said of the law that It will sanction and pro. tret such Injustice, fraud, and wrong.
