The inopt import aM Lews is that relating to the '
opening of t'ocgress an 1 the President's Message, j
ringress comnier.ceJ its se?s-ioti on the 4th of le- j
cember, anJ orj miz-.'l by the choice of Mr. Colfax j
as Speaker auJ MorLerson as Clerk. Loth having j
held those offices in the Previous session. At a cau
cus of L'nion members of the Ikue, hell Monday
night, a resolution was unanimously adopted, recom
nienJitg tbe appointment of a conimittee of fifteen
nine frcm the House and six from the Senate who
shall inquire into the condition of the States recently
in rebellion, and report whether they, or any of
them, shall be entitled to representation in either
House of Congress, with leave to report at any time
Ly Liil. L'ntil such repoit is read, no Southern
members to be admitted. The resolution will doubt-
less be passed by both Houses, and form the basis of
the action of that body with reference to the recon-
structiun system. Very socu after the members
, ir.et in Congress, it tecan;e apparent that there was
; iLuch unanimity regarding the question of admitting J
j the Representatives and Senators from the States I
j lately iu rel elliou. Its action will be firm, aud no J
i State allowed a voice in Congress till the negro j
j questions are definitely settled iu each State and by j
! iis own people, lately iu rebellion. Several bills :
j have been reported, which embrace the following j
j important measures : j
I 1st. A bill conceding to the colored people resident j
j vrithiti the District of Columbia the right of votiug I
! on the same terms as the w hites. j
I I'd. A bid proviJiug that grand and petty juries
j shall be composed tqually ot whites an 1 blacks, iu i
communities ot" which cue sixth are colored people. ',
j I". 1. A bill providing that no Southern State shall I
I he aJ mil ted to representation till by popular vote it j
j formally abandons the heresy of States rights, abol- j
j ishes slavery, confers the franchise on the freodmen,
repudiates the rebel debt and assumes its just pro- j
1 portion of the national. j
j The President's .Message, an abstract of which we
i give to-day, and the whole of which will probably be :
j reported in the Sau Francisco papers received by the j
j first mail, may be considered the most important
! Message delivered for years, as it is locked for with
! more interest than usual. It will probably decide
j the course of the American Republic on the great
i questions of the day, viz :
The restoration of the rebel States and the negro
The indemnity for pirate cruisers.
The French occupation of Mexico.
From the brief synopsis received, it is difficult to
determine just what the Preside ut says or means,
but all thete points are fully refertel to. One thing
is apparent, that there is a possibility of war grow
ing out of the two latter questions, and the San
Francisco Bulletin gives utterance to the following
reardiui! the finances. The fact that United States
I rt- f.llon from TO fa f,4 rr-nts tr, !,.
dollar nas certainly au ominous iook . j
"The threatening attitude of the Unite 1 States and
Briiili GovtrniiKiits towanls each other, growing !
out of the I'leseutatinii of our claims for dzuages j
ust:iiiieil by the Anglo rebel pirates, excites some j
uneasiness iu comtneicial circles, though the prevail
uvz ripiniuii seems to le that wise councils will pre
vail, and that an open rupture will thus be avoided, j
The fear of a possible conflict, however, is seen in 1
ruling of American securities both at home and 1
abroad. It New Yoik the market, at hift accounts, j
was depressed and rather feverish ; while in London j
pri-.v's had niveij way, with larjre sales at G3:G4 j
fur o-ii'J bunds. The London .Niirs (Conservative) ;
sajs iu u late financial article : j
Tending the receipt of news from America, as to
the temper iu which the Washington Cabinet re- j
ceives the refusal of our Government to take into j
consideration the Alabama claims, a check is given j
to the movement in Anurican securities, as regards j
which the tendency cf the market is otherwise very .
fivoiable Nevertheless, in the meantime, the high
prices of interest required from speculative holdeis
h-'2') bonds at the last settlement have caused occa
sional realiz itions, so that the price is barely main
tained Should the American Government adopt
the moderate course which is expected of them, it
would seem difficult to limit the extent of the proba
ble tlow of Uritish capital into American securities,
new and oi l , for there is evidence on every side that
Ihe result i f the civil war has raised the prestige
and credit of America and her enterprises higher
than they have ever stool before."
There is some apprehension of a wholesale return
of our bonds from abroad, as the result of the belli
cose attitude ot the two Governnieats. tYe da not
altogether share in such fears. By far the greater
portion of our bonds are held in Germany, and the
munificent interest we pay to our Teutonic friends
wiil iu:ike them anxious to retain our notes till ma
turity. It is quite certain that all the resources of
statesmanship will be exhausted before an arbitra
ment of arms shall be resorted to, and the commer
cial relations existing between the United States and
Great Britain ure sodose that we cau hardly believe
it possible that the two countries will find it neces
siry to go to war. At nil events, the course of allairs
during the next two weeks will be watched with in
tense interest by business men.
On our fourth page we insert some extracts from
English papers, showing that they do not sustain
Earl Russell, but side with the American Goveru-
i ment. Ihe press in f.ngianu controls puouc seuu-
! ment, and if it disapproves to any great extent of
j any ministerial act, ministers must yield or lose their
offices. Iu this question there can be but one view
of the right of it.
j Nothing new has transpired regarding Mexico,
j unless it be the demonstrations of the Freuch fleet on
the Rio Grand and the arrival of more French troops
at Yera Crnz, both cf which wear a menacing aspect,
i The party in Paris opposed to the French occupation
! of Mexico is becoming very Etrong, and the papers
speak cut ou the subject, and in opposition to the
course of the Government.
Nkw YuKK, November 28th. An impression pre
vails that Grant will-visit New Orleans, for the pur
pose of meeting Sheridan, and consulting relative to
affairs on the Rio Gtande. It is believed there will
r.t-t be any offensive demonstration by Sheriiao'a
troops now ou thit Hue.
A special despatch to the Tribune says : No part
cf the President's message has received so much at
' tention as that relating to Mexico. His position is
! understood to be, that while we cannot be indifferent
fi transpiring events in Mexico, yet interference on
I our pfrt is unnecessary.
The 7'iincs special despatch says : The report that
j John Mitchel was pardoned is untrue He did not

: A Montreal letter says : Toe Fenian excitement haB

I federation scheme will be brought up soon again.
Every effort will be made by the Canadian Govern

number of ll'l, met in caucus to-night in the hall of
the House of Representatives, no members being pres
ent of the late insurrectionary States. A committee
of seven was appointed, consisting of Stevens of Tenn
eylvanii, Raymond of New York, Washburne of Illi
nois, Payne of Wisconsin, Spaulding of Ohio, Bout
well of Massachusetts, and Blair of Maine, who
reported the following resolution :
lit sol red. By the Senate and Houee of Representa
tives of the United States, iu Congiois assembled,
that a Joiut Committee of 15 members shall be ap
pointed, nine of which shall be members of the House,
j and six of the Senate ; who shall enquire into the
! condition of the Slates which formed the so-called
Confederate States of America, and report whether
they or any of them shall be entitled to be repre ented
1 in either House of Congress, with leave to report at
any time by bill. Until such report shall have been
made and tinally acted on by Congress, no member
shall be received into either House from the so-called
Confederate States. All papers relatiug to Hie Kep-
resentatives of said States shall be referred to said
Committee without debate
The resolution was adopted unanimously, and will
be offered in the House of Representatives by Thad
deus Stevens, Chairmau of the Special Committee
who prepared it.
Mr. McPherson, the Clerk of the House of Repre
sentatives, has completed his roll. The list of mem
bers excludes the names of the Representatives elect
from all States heretofore in insurrection. About 184
Representatives ate on tbe roll list. Harrison ami
Piton, from Alabama, and Stubbs and Turner, from
North Carolina, are here with certificates claiming
Washington, December 4th. The proposition that
the Senate shall act in harmony with the House, on
the admission of Southern Representatives, is coldly
received by the Senators, on the ground that it is an
infringement of the rights of the Senators.
' At the opening of the session in the House the galle-
' ries were densely crowded. At noon Mr. McPherson,
j the Clerk, proceeded to call the roll of members.
J While it was beirjg called Mr. Maynard, of Tennessee,

ruled him out of order. 175 members answered to
Mr. Brooks, of New York, male a speech, charac
terizing the omission of the names of members from
Tennessee from the roll as unprecedented, unjust and
totally uncalled for. " If." he said, " Maynard is
not a loyal man from a loyal State, then the President
was not a loyal mm, but an alien and a stranger."
He charged that the adoption of the resolution ex
cluding Southern members from the House by the
Republican caucus, was designed to be antagonistic
to the President's message.
The House took no action on theeubject, but under
the previous question proceeded to the election of a
