It was agreed to print 10,000 extra copies of the Monetary Committee's report. The Committees on Printing and to audit and to control the contingent expenses of the Senate were Authorized to sit during recess. The Senate then went into executive session. When tho doors were re-opened the thanks of the Senate were voted to the Vice-President, who replied as follows: "Senators, I thank you sincerely for the complimentary manner in which you have alluded to my duties as discharged during my brief occupancy of the chair. 1 came to you almost wholly a stranger and a stranger to your rules, I trust in future to be better acquainted with both. Renewing my thanks I declare the Senate adjourned without delay." WASHINGTON-, Confirmation or Fred Douglass Honors lo Ex. Justice Davis Presentation to Mrs. Hayes Adjournment of the Senate. Yrashington, March 17. The Bar Association of the District of Columbia last night appointed a committee to rait on the Senate and protest against the continuation of Frederick Douglass as Marshal of the District of Columbia. t The Senato after a long discussion by a vote of 59 yeas and 8 nays a resolution was agreed to authorizing the sub-committee of the Committee on Privileges and Elections to visit Oregon during the recess, if they deem it expedient, and examine the charges against Senator Grover, of that State. A delegation of prominent business men called upon the President to-day asking the appointment of two out of the three commissioners of this District from among the citizens whose interests are identi fied with property in the District. In the executive session of the Sen ate there was a debate lasting an hour and a half concerning the nom ination ot Fred. Douglas. Senator Conkling made the principal speech in favor of its confirmation, and Senator Whyle was tho most prominent speaker against it. Tho arguments of the opposition were addressed to.the question ot the business qualifications of Douglass for this appointment and especial stress was laid on the fact that the bar association opposed it on the ground that in tiieir opinion he cou'd not successfully administer the affairs of the office. The nomination was, however, confirmed by a yea3 and nays vote by five or six majority. No Republicans voted against it and Gordon, Hale, Beck Garland and other Democrats voted for it. It is understood that Lamar, who was absent on account of sickness would have voted aye if present. . Senators Morton, McMillan and Salisbury are the Committee appointed to inquire into the charges against Senator Grover from Oregon. At a meeting of the bar of the Supreme Court to take action as to the retirement of Justice Davis Senator Carpenter was called to the chair and Secretary of State Evarts made Secretary. A committee was appointed to draft resolutions and Mat H. Carpenter, G. H. Williams, S. T. Phillips, R. T. Merwick, J. H. Aston Joseph Casey and W. O. Grc8ham were chosen. Tho committee reported through ex-Senator Carpenter, who said: Mr. Chairman: I am instructed to report the following resolutions: Resolved, That the bar of the Supreme Court have learned with deep regret of the resignation of Mr. Davis. J, Resolved, That they desire to record their high sense of his learning, ability love, of justice and fearless independence in the discharge of hi s judicial duties, and their grateful appreciation of the courtesy which he habitually extended to them. Resolved, That the Chairman be requested to communicate these resolutions to Judge Davis and the Attorney-General present them to the court and ask that they be entered upon its minutes. Mr. Carpenter said: . In moving the adoption of these resolutions it is unnecessary for me to make any remarks. I believe every member regrets his leaving .the bench. His faithful discharge of all duties, his willingness to meet all responsibili ty attached with the high office he has held, have not only approached but excited our warmest admiration. I move that the resolutions be adopted. Mr. Williams I second the motion of my honored brother. I fully concur in all that he has said as to the merits of Justice Davis. Everybody in this country acquainted with the Supreme Court will feel the loss the judiciary has sustained j in his retirement, but it is a consolation to know that what the Judic- j ial Department of the government has lost the Legislative Department has gained by his election to the Senate. I do not consider it neces-rary to add anything more to the ex- j pressions contained in the resolutions. The resolutions wore unanimously adopted and the meeting adjourned. At the reception this evening many Senators took an opportunity of paying their parting respects to President and Mrs. Hayes. There is an exodus north aud south to nignt. Numbers of prominent politicians here since the adjournment of Congress have decided to linger no longer, and with a green flag went out as a national emblem. Judge M. V. Gibbs, colored, of Arkansas, elector at largo on the Republican ticket, had an interview with the President this afternoon. In the course of conversation Judge Gibbs remarked that the nomina tion of Key as Postmaster General had excited some alarm among the colored people, but it was offset by. the nomination of Mr. Douglass, and he assured the President that the colored people intend to support him in his measures of reconciliation. Judge Gibbs says the President remarked in reply that he was siucere in his policy, and would adhere to it unless it should prove impracticable. For eight years the policy ot force and muskets had been tried in the South but had failed, aud public sentiment now demanded a change. Washington, March 17. Mrs. Ida Elder, of New York, presented to Mrs. President Hayes to-day an elegantly bound copy of a Centennial temperance volume with the following note: "Still in thy right hand carry gentle peace to silence envious tongues; be just and fear not. Henry IV, chapter 3d." The national temperance .society Read street, New York, March 17, 1877, St. Patrick's Day. Hon. Wm. E. Dodge, President. To Mrs. President Hayes,My dear Madame: With sentiments appropriate to this anniversary so cherished by the nation, aud with an earnest appreciation of the favor you have already expressed for our cause, I have the pleasured offering to yen, through the hands of Mrs. Ida Elder, this Centennial temperance volume, with some minor publications. Be pleased to accept them, with our best wishes for the prosperity of the President and yourself. Very truly Your obedient servant, - John Farnell. Mrs. Hayes accepted the book and very gracefully returned her thanks, saying that the cause of temperance was very sacred and should receive the encouragement of the citizens, and especially of tho mothers. Tne Chinese Massacre Sau Francisco, March 17. A Chico dispatch says: Great excitement is prevailing there from the fact that a number of citizens this morning received threatening letters through the postoffice, reading "get rid of your Chinese within fifteen days or suffer the consequences." The officer received a notice warning him if he attempted to discover who killed the Chinamen he would be himself killed. Rewards offered thus far aggregate $3,500, including $1,500 from the State. Two young men were arrested on suspicion last night. Circumstances point strongly to one of them. The matter is creating a general sensation. The press of the city is pronounced in demandiug the discovery and punishment of the criminals. The Dancer Past. Omaha, March 17.

Tnrouffhont tne Cosmtry Unfavorable Weather In Chteaso ana Hew Yorlt. Cincinnati, March 17.-St. Patrick's Day was appropriately celebrated by the different Irish societies of this city, this morning. Chicago, March 17. St. Patrick's Day dawned bright and cheerful, and though the ground was covered with snow the processions formed in various parts of the city at an early hour, and after church services had been held paraded the streets to the number of about 8,000. Among the notable features of the procession - were the 2nd regiment and various Catholic temperance societies and civil organizations. New York, March 17. The Police Commissioners gave orders that the streets be thoroughly cleaned for the processions of to-day, but a enow storm coming up last evening and continuing throughout the night made the clearing impossible, so that to walk in honer of St. Patrick's Day is a Action, to wade ankle deep through slush and mud is the reality; however, Irishmen in the line which was not as extended as that of previous years, are as enthusiastic as ever. Neither bands nor banners are as numerous as heretofore; hard times and growing indifference to the street, parade having their effect. Spectators, however, are as plenty as formerly and just as pleased. United States and Irish nags floated in unison from many flag-staffs, and banners were everywhere. The day will be closed by balls and banquets. Brooklyn and other adjacent cities had parades, with the atmosphere and temperature as uncomfortable as that of New York. In Washington President Hayes received the procession, the bands as they passed playing "Hail to the Chief," while the President remained with uncovered head. In all places special religious services were held in the morning, ane the churches were crowded. la; .Richmond a rain, hail and snow storm preceded a public parade. In the evening a theatrical performance was given for the benefit of the poor. In Boston the enthusiasm was less than heretofore and the procession was smaller. In many New England cities there were parades. St. Louis, March 17. St. Patrick's Day was celebrated here with the usual honors. High Mass was celebrated at St. Malachas Church in the forenoon and an eloquent panegyric pronounced by Father Zeigler. This afternoon there was a very fine procession, of nearly all the Catholic societies in the city, accompanied by a large number of citizens in carriages, on horse-back and on foot. To-night the usual number of balls are in progress and the Knights of St. Patrick are having their regular annual banquet, a notable feature of which is the presence of Mr. O 'Conner, Power Member of the English Parliament, who will reply to the toast, "the Day we Celebrate." The day was bright and the streets along the line of march of the procession were densely crowded with spectators. Memphis, March 17. St. Patrick's Day was celebrated by the various Irish societies by a procession and the usual religious exercisee. Charleston, March 17. The St. Patrick's Day parade included all tho white military companies, whose appearance in public under arms was forbidden on Washington's birthday. San Francisco, March 17. St. Patrick's Day has been celebrated with considerable enthusiasm by processions, literary and musical exercises to be followed by a number of balls and parties in the evening. The weather was warm and pleasant. Bobbery. New Orleans, March 17. The express messenger on the train from Mobile reports that at Lookout Station a man boardrd the express car and presented a pistol at him. rHe made a rush at the man and re ceived a ball in the head, disabling him. The highwayman then grabbed up a $5,000 package, jumped from tbe train and made his escape. A Jail Oreaser. Louisville, March 17. At Lancaster, Ky., G. C Kennedy broke from tbe guard who was taking him to jail by order of the court to answer a charge of murdering his brother. The prisoner fled to an old house where twenty-five men joined him and defied the authorities. The guard fired on the house and wounded one man. A hundred then aur-rnnnded the house, and serious trouble is anticipated. Good News For Grangers. Chicago, March 17. Freight rates on all grains but wheat from Kansas City to St. Louis and Chicago have been reduced three and a half cents. The new rates are to continue until April 1st. When the new passenger rates to New York from the West were announced by the passenger agents who met in St. Lonis, the Lake Shore & Michigan Southern R. R. refused to accept the advance and continued to sell tickets at the old rate. This action was understood to be in furtherance of the Vander-bilt policy in the New York Central competition. It was expected that the Lake Shore & Michigan Southern R. R. would soon agree to the advance, but that not having been done the other roads will undoubtedly return to the old figures in a few days. Late this evening all the roads interested in the late advance made in St. Louis came down again. The figures of the Lake Shore and New York Central is nominally $18 from Chicago to New York, and corresponding figures from other western to other eastern points. This is an official restoration or the figures which prevailed during the fall and winter, A dispatch received here says the Illinois Central raiiroad to-day bought the Jackson and Great Northern railroad at New Orleans, paying for it $10,500,000, and assuming all mortgages and indebtedness. The northern section of the road will be bought by the same company and give tho Illinois Central an outlet o New Orleans. Swan, one of the jury in the Sulll-van-Harfard trial, was arrested today on a charge of perjury in swearing before he was accepted. The evidence against him is said to be strong. Bismarck ana fills Enemies. London, March 17. A Standard Berlin dispatch states that the government intends to Introduce a bill in the Reichstadt empowering the Emperor to publish the laws for Alsace and Lorraine. After they have passed the Federal Council and the Alsace and Lorraine Committee, but without the previous assent of the Reichstadt, a majority of the National Liberty party will claim the Reichstadt's right to veto such legislation. Th same' dispatch says the German newspapers continue to comment on Bismarck's speeches upon the organization of an imperial ministration. The Hanovoreau Causcer, a national paper influenced by Beuning-8eo, President of the Prussian Diet, has a specially interesting article, which concludes as follows: "We openly profess that the real obstacle to the better organization of an imperial government is the Chancel lor's' personal behavior and autocratic nature." A correspondent remarks that never before would the National Liberal papers have dared to publish anything like this. Vice Chancellor Milans on taking his seat to-day said the man named Cosgrove who threw an egg at him yesterday as tho court adjourned, and whom he committed for contempt, on being searched in prison was found to have a loaded pistol in his pocket. Cosgrove's sanity is being inquired into. Exit Flncbbaek. New Orleans, March 17. Tho Republican State Central Committee met to-day at 12 m., and in accordance with a resolution adopted at a previous meeting, Mr. P. B. S. Pinchback was expelled from the organization, by a vote of twenty-five to four. A. Dumont, who, during the campaign was Chairman of of the Campaign Committee, was then elected President of the State Central Committee. Telegraphic Markets at. Louis Produce Market.
