His policy for Ireland necessarily excites a great degree of interest in the United States, not alone among our Irish citizens but other intelligent classes of our people. The leaders, in public affairs in England, profess to be governed in a great measure by what they call the English constitu tion. That is, an unwritten and un compiled code of Principles, but it es tablishes a system, however obscure, of principles favorable to public liber ty. It would occupy more space than we can afford, to enter into any ex planatory details of the various prin ciples and doctrines cf which it is con stituted, to present even a faint sem blance of wdiat it is, but taken in all its parts it is favorable to the princi ples of Liberty. Many thousands of intelligent and educated Britons, have a clear and comprehensive idea of all its parts, and they could see, that for many long years the Irish have been deprived of the benefits of its beneficent principles. In Mr. Glad stone’s wise and considerate appeal to the people, he looks to these intelli gent subjects, not only for their votes, but their vast influence with others less informed in favor of the wise and beneficent measure which he submits to their consideration and votes, to sustain his measure for Irish home rule. England claims not only to have a free constitution, but a most liberal government as opposed to what we may term an arbitrary government. The latter explodes all rule but that which is founded in institutions of the will of a King, and dogmas found ed in violence and terror. To give more freedom and better rule to Ire land antagonizes these arbitrary dog mas, will emancipate and regenerate the Irish from old prejudices, over throw the tyrannies which have ©im pressed them for centuries, and make them as they deserve to be, the equals of the English and the Scotch. It is not a rasli and dangerous experiment, as its opponents assert, for, as to in tellect, virtue and honor, the Irish are the equals of any other classes of people in‘the kingdom. Many of England’s greatest statesmen, gener als, orators, poets, and other writers, were Irishmen. Burke was never ex celled as a statesman, Wellington as a commander, Sheridan and Curran orators and vU y other and or- . WPz andd; ished for genius, by Eng- land or* Scotland. The pride the honor, and justice of England de mand the success of the Home Kale measure; her quiet and safetv de mand it, and Gladstone, the greatest of English Statesmen, stakes his char acter and honor upon the safe and re generating influences it will exert up on the entire realm. . Gladstone stands out in this great effort for liberty and justice, though defeated by a few votes in the Parlia- Washington Letter. From Our Kegular Correspondent. Washington, June 14, 188G. Having entered upon the seventh month of the first session of the forty- ninth Congress, the lower House pro poses to make an effort to crowd the work through within the time con sumed byThe session ending July loth 1884. This prospect to the outside observer, is not very promising; but those supposed to direct the majority of the upper and lower Houses, say that it can and probably will be ac complished. There is already talk of introducing a resolution in the House fixing June 2Gth, for adjournment with the expectation that the date w r ill not be set more than ten or twelve days beyond that time. The President and his wife have un der contemplation a tour of the northern lakes with a select party of friends in a chartered steamer, during the summer. It is probable that they will spend some time on the seacoast and in the mountain regions after the adjournment of Congress, and then go to their old home in Buffalo. Ac cording to the program they w’ill leave Buffalo some tinle in August and make a trip which will include Lakes Erie, Huron and Michigan making stops at points of interest. The pro gram may be varied or abandoned, but it is under serious consideration at the White House and will probably be carried out. Much will depend on the adjournment of Congress. If Congress does not adjourn before Au gust, the President will of course be detained at Washington, and his sum mer outing, as now proposed, will be abandoned. It is said that the Presi dent and his wife have never been farther west than the city of Buffalo. Mr. Cleveland is quite anxious to make a tour of the lakes, and if he does so, the Chicago Iroquois Club, to which lie has a standing invitation, will doubtless entertain him. There seems to have been very good management displayed in the matter of making contracts for post- office supplies during the eighteen months past and consequently a great saving to the Government has been the result. During Judge Grasham’s term as Postmaster General, this bqs- tire business-like transactions. Post master Generai Vilas is giving spec ial attention to this class of work un der him, and together with third As sistant Postmaster General Hazen, aft er much careful labor now have bind ing contracts which, while they will doubtless yield fair profits to the con tractors, will, at the same time, be of great advantage and benefit to the public at large. Take for instance the contract for stamped envelopes, just made bv the Postmaster General for the four coming years, commencing ment, the grandest and most majestic July lst .

If it should pay for them on the basis of the present contract a disbursement of over $950,- 000 over and above that snm would be required.

Mr. Randall after the election ol was Mr. Cleveland's view', and that a bill would be introduced which wo receive little or no Democratic opp sition in the House at least.

A BALL THROUGH HIS HEAD. THE SUICIDE OF MR. DAVID WELLS. Yesterday morning about 8 o'clock Mr. Dayid E. B. Wells placed a pistol to his head, and in tw T o hours after ward was a corpse. Mr. Wells was about twenty-eiglit years of age. He was born and raised in Washington county, and was a son of Col. T. F. Wells, a well known and respected citizen of that county. Mr. Wells has spent about two years in Macon. He was at one time a clerk in the dry goods store of Lyons A Cline but left there in January last. Some time in March he was given the position of city salesman in the store of H. D. Adams A Co., Captain Adams being his brother-in-law. For many years he was addicted to drinking. Friends and relations tried in every way possible to prevent his becoming a slave to the habit, but in vain. He was finally sent to the asylum at Milledgeville to he treat ed as an inebriate, and was discharged something over a year ago and thought to be cured. For several weeks past members of Captain Adams's family, with whom he was living in Vineville, noticed that he had returned to his old habits, and after being advised by Capt. Adams in a friendly way to desist un til forbearance ceased to be a virtue, Captain Adams was forced to harsher methods and reprimanded him. Even this failed to bring about a reforma- ed to'seayl* and seemed quite low-spirited. Gn one occasion he asked his sister, Mrs. Adams, for laudanum with which, to end his life, but as such a threat had been made often very little attention was paid to the request. Yesterday morning he sent worn to Capt. Adams to go up stairs and see him. Knowing what he wanted, Capt. Adams requested his brother, Mr. Chas. M. Adams, to say to him that he had no work for him and that his place had been filled. The mes sage was carried to him and Capt. Adams went to his store. About 8 o’clock the negro Bob Parker, who is employed on the lot went to the stable, whioh is situated in the rear of the liouse, and there found Mr. Wells seated on the plat form or step. Taking a piece of pa per from a crack in the door, Mr. Wells asked him to take the P a P® r _ , the house. Then, as if a thought had struck him at the moment he added a few more lines arid handing itto the ne gro said: “Good-bye. I aitt going never to return.” Bob told him to wait until he returned with an answer and then went toward the house. While ascending the rear steps, Bob heard the report of a pistol, which so frightened him that he dropped the note. Mrs. Adams was standing in the door and also heard the report. Bob ran to the stable, from which the pistol shot proceeded, and there found Mr. Wells lying on the platform and blood issuing from a hole m tne - it above Mr. PATENTS GRANTED.

(Mr. Blount in the chair) on the legis lative appropriation bill. The civil service clause having been read, the chair stated that the pend ing question was the point of order raised by Mr. Morrison, of Illinois, against the provision looking to a change of rules of the commission. Mr. Holman, of Indiana, briefly an tagonized the point, holding that the provision was merely a limitation or? the expenditure of public money. Mr. Morrison, in support of hi> point, said that under the law the du ty of adopting regulations devon ey on the commission and the president. The purpose of the proposed legisla tion was to impose certain conditions which the law did not impose, am therefore was a change of l a '' r 111 COIt travention of the rules of the home. A long debate followed upon the point of order, but as the decisioi the chair was a foregone conclusion. but little interest was taken in th discussion. , The chairman then delivered a car? ful decision, in which he reviewed t - provisions of the civil service lav.am the scope of the rule under which tm point of order was raised and finahY sustaining the point, ruled the i ion out of the bilk j to Mr. Gibson of Maryland, ed t strike out the appropriation for tn commission.
