EUGENE CITY, OREGON WASHINGTON GOSSIP. Wasiiisgton, April 3, 187G. The Demooratio oauous bill was of fered on Tuesday last by Mr. Payne of Ohio, and on a motion, to suspend the rules received only 81 vdtes to 150 against it. Nearly all the votes for the bill were from the Democratic side of the house. But as was pre dicted iu previous letters neither the Hard-money oor the per tt greenback men among the Democrats voted for the bill, and it is now thought that the finance question will be dropped as Reno sometime since suggested. The acuteness of the Republican par ty leaders has never been more con spicuously displayed than in the way they have handled this finance ques tion. They have lad absolute con trol of all the departments oi the gov ernment for fifteen years and were the authors of the system of financo, "the direful causo cf all our woe," and now they deftly make of it a wooden horse to introduce confusion into the Domocralio citadel. Their Richard sons, Chases and Boutwells could not grapple with the monster they had evoked and they evaded it Now that tho Democrats control the llouao, whose duty it is to grapple with such questions, tbey force the issue and de nounce the Democrats as "incompe tent," because they do not at once settle a question which Republicans have been unable to in years of effort. The Democrats would do well to (bl ow the example set them by the Re publicans for so mauy years and for the present ignore the finance question. Their whole efforts should be to re store holiest and efficient government; when this is done it will be time enough to discuss obtuse questions of finance. Success can only be attained by perfect amity and that cannot for the present be had upon this money problem, therefore it should be se verely let alone. One of the House committees has been investigating the management of the Government insane asylum, and it has been shown that while one body of Republican patriots were speculating upon the bones of dead soldiers, another sot have been mak ing fortunes by feeding insane men and women upon rotten beef and mouldy bread, clothing them in rags and iorciug them to live in filth that would turn the stomach of a well bred hog. Suoh patriots should be in the language oi the Cincinnati plat form of 1872, "relegated" to private ife. : General Custar has been before the committee on war expenditures ana has testified to the corruption of post traders and to the manner in which they robbed officers and soldiers to enable them to make money enough to pay Orv 1 Grant, Belknap, and the other black mailers. Several of the post traders have testified to their having been assessed and forced to pay sums ranging from one to tour hundred dollars tor political purposes. With the whiskey ring busted and the post-traders fieed from the system of blackmail, the campaign fund of the Republicans will not be so large as it was in 1S7Z. . . It has come to light that Robeson has been construing the bankrupt house of Jay Cooke, McCnlloch and Co. as the fiscal agents of the navy in Europe, and $200,000 of the drafts of Pav-master General Bradford, who is kept in plain violation of law in Lou don, have lately come out as having been paid out of funds intended tor other purposes. There has been more "crookedness" in the navy thaa in any' other department, but it is harder to trace because Kobeson has covered up his tracks too well. Whitthorne is on Ins track like a sieutn-bouna and will bag his game before long. Attorney-General Pierrepont seem to be on "the ragged edge," for not only is the committee disclosing some very discreditable lacts s to Ills de partment, but there has arisen a ques tion of veracity between him ana the President as to the letter written to the District Attorney in relation to implicated witnesses and which Bab cock stole a copy of aod published. The articles of impeachment against Secretary Belknap have been prepared and reported. The evidence is amply sufficient to codvict bim and the trial will commenco next week. The House is now boldio? night sessions to consider the executive, legislative and judicial bill ; tome opposition has been developed among the Demo- cratio members but there is no doubt tbat the bill will rr ss substantially as the committee' reported it, and that six millions of dollars will be saved to the government by iu becoming a law. Should it bo defeated, there .tangibility must reH, ,?pon the lie publican Senate for continuing the useless expenditure of $6,000,000 per anaura.7 The entire force of the ad ministration seems to be brought to bear to secure Conkling delegates to the Cinoipnali Convention and the Democrats ought to heartily aid in this movement for no other candidate except Morton could be so easily beaten as "the favorite son of New York.'? i ' ;' . ., i , Last night the House elected Messrs. Lord, Knott, Jenks, Hyndo, McMa hon, Wheeler and Hoar to raanago the impeachment case. The two last named are Republicans aud all are good lawyers. Secretary Belknap has employed ex-Senator Matt. Car penter and other distinguished law yers to conduct his defence. They will first plead to Mie jurisdiction, claiming that Belknap's resignation prevents impeachment. This is an interesting question that has nevor vet been before the Senate and tho judgment on it will be looked for with interest by all parties. It is thought that the legal question raised will be decided without any partisan ship. The bill making silver dollars a legal tender in all sums np to fifty dollars, and smaller silver coins in all sums to twenty-five dollars, passed the house on Friday. The Treasuror is authorized to issue these coins for the redemption pf fractional currenoy. The Chi istiancy resolution, a substi tute for that of Senator Morton di recting an investigation of the Mis sissippi election,' passod the Senate by a nearly strict party vote. Senator Key of Tennessee, tho only Democrat, voting lor the biil. C. S. Bell, for. merly of Jackson, Mississippi, testi fied that he had been employed as a detective in the Interior department and was sent by the President and Attorney-General to St. Louis to act &S a spy upon District Attorney Dyer, lie says that the Private Secretaries, Babcock and Luokey paid him to steal any papers he might find in Dy er's ofliue that would convict Bab- cook. . One item of news from Europe is portentious. it is said that tho czar of Russia will soon abdicate in favor of the Czaroveitch. The former has been the steady friend of the Emperor William and Bismarok. and the latter is well known to have an antipathy to everything German. Several of the Russian papers are openly advis ing the Servians and Montenegrins to assist tho Herzegovinians. The Czar oveitch is one of the ablest generals in Europe and is supposed to have ereat military ambition. The pur chase of the Suez canal by England to strengthen her position in England, and the great accossion to the power of the German Empire have aroused the jealousy of the Russians, and it is thought that this movement portends au effort to extend the Russian Em pire to the Bosphorus and consolidate its power by establishing a Solavio Empire on the borders of Germany. Such a resolution upon the part ol Russia would pluo:;e all Europe into the bloodiest war of centuries. Nemo. Cubshks, Or., April 18, 1876.
