The Senate, on Thursday, In the matter of
Ibc complaint! igalnet the Secretary of tha
Navy In connection with the employment of
Mr. Morgan In the purchase of rfseele, unanl
mously came to the just conclusion, that before
any action thould be taken to bla prejudice, be
should bare the opportunity to present his tide
of the case. Even the Impulsive 8enator, Mr.
Hale, who bad at first lavored a more summary
proceeding, yielded, at laat, to the justice of
If Mr. Hale had known the whole history

an Executive Council voted to diamlaa an ab

the authority of a legislative report, be would
hardly hare expressed bis approval of It, or
bare cited It as a precedent to be followed.
Six months afterwards, the same Executive

voted to reverse tbelr own decision, and did to

The pergonal pmltyof the bead of the Navy
Department Is not put In question Tbe com
mission which he allowed upon the purchase
of vessels was tbe fixed mercantile commis
sion, the same, by tbe way, which has been al
lowed by another department, to other mer
chants in New York, upon purchases for the
Iiurnslde expedition, to the amount of a mil
lion of money. la the case of Mr. Morgan, the
circumstances, that he Is a relative (by mar
riage) of the Secretary of .the Navy, and that
tbe necessary purchases proved, in the end, to
l vastly greater than was originally expected,
naturally enough provoke comment Indeed,
we should be wantiog in frankness, if we did
not admit that they afford fair occasion for re
gret. But they weigh as nothing 'against the
tfflciency, honesty, and success with which the
rati conocrns of the Navy Department havt
bean administered elnce the 4th of March, and
wm Mive, too, lb it It will be shown, In the
end, tbat U e ommlrsioos allowed to Mr. Mor
gan are far lees than the sums saved to the
Government by his employment
J& Mr. Alexander Wolowskl, pianist and
composer, proposes, sometime next week, to
giro one or two grand operatlo concerts with
iwrvrnl ol the best artistes of the Italian Opera
The sime artiste gave a concert lately in Phil
adelphia, and we copy what one ol our con
temporaries says of their success:
"Tut. Mtnn.il, Kind Hill. A grand con
cert was given on r rlday evening tor tne bene
fit of the Volunteer Refreshment Saloons, and
have made soma wonderful discoveries at
tbat brilliant concert. Here In our very midst
we have had be most admirable prima donna

iorcd. Her execution of tbecavatlna Lucia
and variations from De Deriot were wonderful
As to the Spanish Bolero, It was sung with
crest spirit and beauty, and was most enthusl
otically encored and most gracefully repeated
by tb chaimlog, graceful and attractive
prima donna, Madame Gomez de Wolowika.
Alier this great succew, we hope, of oourre, soon
in hear her again. Signor Rldolfl, a mortasree
blo and pon-erful birllooe, has an excellent
method, and is a perfect musician in science as

Where has Garibaldi been hiding himself all

tinkers not possessed of half hla merit ? Mr.
Alexander Woloweki, the great pianist, plaved
wilh wonderful execution and brilliancy; he
xecuiea reverai pieces ni nis own compost
lion, which were most enthusiastically recelv

word, this coneert was tbe best of the s-a-son."
We cannot doubt f tbe success of these
artists In Wasbiogton, and If Mr. Bland, the
manager of our Theatre, could make arrange
menis with Mr. Wolowskl to have these arllsls

and very pleasant to our music loving public.

Mr. MOnniLL, of Vermont , defended the Beo

with Mr. Dawes, that the people would not be
wllliog to pay heavy war taies, unless the Treas

Mr. RICHARDSON thought that the plunderere
against tbe Treasury ought to be punished the

So the clause was stricken out.
Mr. STEVENS moved that the committee rise,
