lUTUTHtHi marmor.
In tbe Senate yesterday, Mr. Cuu offered a
substitute for (bblll la abolish slavery In
this District, reported by Mr. Morutru, from
the District Committee.
Soma 'of lb additional provisions la tbe
substitute propcied by Mr. Cuu, asem to be
valuable.
It allowi no compensation for alar children
under tbe age of fire years, whom It tnnu OTr
to tbe guardianship of tbelr parents, next ot
Un, or tbe municipal authority.
In respect to eleves of alzty years of age and
upwards, It provides that tbelr Talus shall be
paid to tbe municipal authorities for the sap-
port of each slaves. Tbls is, we sappose, upon
tbe principle that all which slaves can earn
alter that age, or, la other words, tbe Talus of
their services, Is not more than soOctent to
provide for tbelr maintenance to the end of
tbelr lires, aa obligation now resting upon
tbelr owners, and tbe performance of wblcb
cannot be practically secured In any other
way, If ilaTery is abolished.
Instead ot providing a special commission to
appraise the Talne of the sUtcs to be liberated,
It dsrolTes that duty upon an existing trlbu
nal, tbe Court of Claims.
One of Its proTistons ha a bearing beyond
this District, being, In fact, a modification ot
the fugltlTe slave law, wherever applicable.
Tbls modification is, In substance, that no per
son alleged to be a fugitive Slavs, shall be re
strained of his liberty, except after legal pro
ceedings founded upon tbe oalh of the claimant,
and wbtcb oath shall include an averment that
tho claimant has not been concerned In re
bellion, either by bearing arms, or by aiding
and abetting. This will, la the first place, con
fine tbe remedies of Ihe fugltlTe slave law to
loyal citizens, and, in the second place, will
put aa end to the detestable practice of arrest
ing men upon tbe presumption that they are
stares, merely beoaute they are not white.
Before an arrest can be made, somebody must
appear claiming to be tbe owner of tbe party
arrested, Terylfylog that claim by oalh, and
purging himself, by express denial, from that
presumption of disloyalty which attaches to
slaTeholders, after a rebellion in which nlne-teen-twentietbs
of Ibst clsss of persons bare
Been concerned.
Mr. Moasiix'e bill is assigned for next Wed
nevdsy, and it la understood that Ihe Senate
will continue Its consideration, until it la mo
tared and passed. The amendments proposed
by Mr. Cube, and those which will doubtless
bs proposed by others, will of course consume
some time, but we can wait patiently If the
measure will be thereby further perfected, and
more especially as lis flnsl adoption by Con
gress is now regarded as quite certain. The
day of Its patcage Is looked forward to, with
great bopes, by tbe mass of the citizens o this

it with satlsfaotion. "Tho campaign," says
JUacfcuosd', " is jnst as likely to end by estab
listing a new frontier for Canada, with Port
land on one flank and Lake Ou'arlo oa the other,
as by leaving the enemy in permanent posses
sion of a mile of Csnsdlaa territory."

The London Quarterly considers the break

failure of the great experiment of an elective

The object of the proposed war with tbe

Tux TJovmxiD Ba.i This bill which baa
p unJ the House ot Representatives in soma
form, no less than five different times, again
ia!td the House yesterday, by a most em-
p'nttc rote. We presume this time It will be-
o.mo a Uw, ss it is a measure popular with
ix 1 ptrtlee. The amendment proposed by Mr
11- hnan, was well calculated to defeat tbe
'h;le design of the bill. This amendment
propos'd to glre tbe bounty to the soldiers in
I. d grants, instead of money. Tbe result
u ulil bard been that all or tbe available land
vroj'd bare to be given to tbe soldiers la land
win i ants, which would never bar been of real
Uaifhto thesoldierr, but would go Into lbs
UnUofthe (peculators throughout the conn.
t-, while tbe lands would remain unlmprored.
A tbe bill now is, it grants a homestead to
h iA tettlers on tbe public lands, who will
improve the same. Thus the rest public do-
uijiu or the great West will be Improved, the
wealth, and consequently the revenue, of the
i.a'.ion enhanced, and great encouragement and
useHtance will be given to the Industrious
poorer classes of oar own and other countries
to provide for themselves comfortable homes.
Our soldiers will receive their bounty in
money, which will be far more accentable to
tbem, while at the same time they will bare
the same right to the publlo lands ai other cit
izens, and the Shylocks will not bare the oppor
luouy, lor tne purpose or speculation, of keep
ing these lands out of tbe hands of those who
would become actual settlers.

It would certainly afford us great pleasure to
announce the promotion of CoL Cochrane, and
we are quite certain it would giro unlrenal
satisfaction In New York, where he Is beet

Atanjr Tracts.
During the last few months, Rev. J. W.
Airord, secretary of the American Tract So
ciety, Boston, has distributed through the en
tire army cf the Potomao nearly twenty million
pagea or religious reading. Room No. 22, Gen
eral Post Office building, is the depot irom
whioh this reading matter has been quietly,
but efficiently, distributed.
The Government, dlso.-rnlng the effect of this
work In elevating the morale or the army, has
placed at Mr. Alvord'a disposal such means ot
aistnuuuoa, mat every regiment Is rurnisbed
once a week with rellilous leadinar without
expense. No religions work is more cheaply,

The Soclelr proposes to extend a similar
distribution to tbe armies of th South and

" If tbe Mexican pecple, by a spontaneous

Cotton. -It la represented that considerable
cotton may be expected from Edenton and
other North Carolina porls, In the possession
of the national forces. Tbe people there are
not so much Inclined to destroy tbelr own prop
erty, as Ibe frantic planters of South Carolina
hare shown themsclres to be. The more se
date North Carolinians think it better to cell
cotton than to bum it, a most sensible conclu
sloo, and presaging returning sanity In polili
cal matters.

niLLfl REFERRED
Sereral unimportant bills were presented,
read tn nrsi ana second urn.', and reicrred to
appropriate commltUes.
NOTEi IN TUE DISTR'CT.
Mr. F. A. UUNIUiIG, or N. Y otfertd a
bill to repeal so much of tbe act of Congress
as for jlda the Issue, iu IheDlslrlot of Columbia,
of notes oi a lees denomination man fivo dol
lars. Referred to the Committee on tbe District
of Columbia.
NATIONAL f:UNDRT.
Mr. MOORHEAD, or Pa., reported a bill to
establish a National Foundry east of tho Alle
ghany mountains, and an arsenal and armory
west ot those mountains. Referred to the
Coamtltee of tbe Whole.
Mr. DELANO, of Mass.. presented a minority
report on the same subject. Rcforrid at
above.
XNQINEEE TOLCKTSERS.
The regular order being the bill to authorize
llm employment of engineer volunteers,
Mr. WILSON, of Iowa, elated that he had
learned, irom a source entitled to credit, that
tbe Government Is about to tralld a railroad
fiom Nlcholasritle, Kentucky, to Knoxrille,
Tennessee, a dlstauoe or about 180 miles. Iu
Ihe other blanch or Congress, the confirmation
of a btiaadiet, treneral of railroads is rwndlnx.
Pultina- these two facts and Ibis bill together,
and we may. fairly presume that tbe engineers
are for the purpose of b jllding railroads. And
this hill does not dtminisn, aa nas oeeu cieimem,
hut Increases the loroe and expenses of the
aimv.f lie waa ODDosed to mis dui, iortne
very leason mat ne nenerea it to no a pan oi
ine soneme or woion tue rajroou aiiuueq tu ia
to ha constructed.
Ur.liIii.lU, or Missouri, did not see wnat
railroads had to do with tbls bill. Tbo object
of this corps Is to preoede our army and pre
pare tbe roads for the advance or the army.
Mr. MaYNARD, oT Tenoissce, favored the
MIL
Mr. WILSON said be was not In favor of or
ganizing a corps for the commercial interests
01 u particular section or tne country.
Mr. LOVEJOY, of III., thought that tbe
transportation of troops, supplies, etc., could
be made by wrtgons snd other ilmtlar convey
acoes, a great deal oneapcr tnan oy Dunaing
railroads through rough mountain ranges.
Mr. TitowuuiuuH. or Micnigan. saia mat
alriadyt We bars a railroad, in tbat section,
whioh, though longer, can be used, without the
en'irmoi.t e.ut'rne of build ng the proposed
road, lie wsa ntnazod when it was made
known Iu this llouto that the President had ai
ready contracted lor the building or a railroad
In Kentucky. lie did not kuow where the
Preatdeut obtained his authority to do this.
Mr. MALLORY. of Ky , said he believed the
President to bo a ilaln. blunt, direct and honest
man, and would not engage in any Itlog of
this Kind wnnout autnoiuy. ,nuat uu aim
done, he did on tbe authority of n law passed
through both Houses of Congress.
Mr. TRIMBLE, of Ohio, could not believe
the construction or this railroad to bo a mlll
Unr necestitv. Ihe Baltimore uud Ohio rail
road Is more of a military necessity, yet it has
been abandoned to the enemy. The cons'ruo
tlou of a double track from here to Baltimore,
is more of a military necessliy. The Potomao
Is blockaded, and ne ara cut off la every di
rection, except one single truck to Baltimore.
Wby lias not the President authorized the con
struction of anotbrr track on thatroadt It-is
surely necessary to fscllliate the transporla
tlou of the cuormoui amount or troops, Ire'gbt,
supplies, etc.
