Wsarwnorox, Jan. 14.-The followeag is the
bureau bill Introduced yesterday. Section first
continues in force the act of March 3, 1865, one
year from July 16, 1868, with modiAoations con
tained in this bill.
Section second authorizes the secretary of war,
at his discretion, to discontinue the operation of
the bureau when a State is folly restored to its
constitutional relations in the Union, and is rep
resented in Congress, provided, however, that
the edncational bureau remaintr ndlsturbed until
such State shall have made suitable provisions for
the edueatien of freedmea.
Section third provides that unexpended bal

Section four authorizes the commissioner of the
freedmen's bureau to retain in the bureau, when.

member of the Louisiana seoession a iven
tion. In 1't4 about 400 bales of cotton belonging
to him was seizeo in Mississippi by an agent of the
treasury department, a abandoned property, and
transferred to Mr. Lovell, also a treasury agent,
and under the provisions of the law removed to a
State not in insurrection. Suit was brought in a
Missouri court to recover the property. home
time after the commencement of legal proceed
ings, Elgee availed himself of the amnesty procla
mation of the president, by which he claimed he
was restored to all his rights of property, and
among others his right to the cotton. Distin
guiehed counsel are employed on both sides of the
question, Attorney General Stanbery appearing
for the United States, in company with Messrs.
Hughes and Drake, who were retained by the
secretary of the treasury.
The Tribune opens an editorial on Congress as
follows: " The House and Senate are doing nobly.
Ibe restoration of Mr. Stanton was plucky, and,
at the same time, prudent. The passage of thq
bill in reference to the Supreme Court was
timely. Now let the reconstruction bill go through,
and we shall have an end of this Hancock busi
ness, wish Sheridan back in New Orleans and
Sic) lee in Charleston." It adds: " This is no time
to split hairs or chop logic, or dawdle over the
mere technicalities of precedent. The work must
be dote. We most reconstruct the South in spite
of the president. We must override him, and if
he persists in this fatal and deplorable course, he

the president received a note from Grant quoting
the Senate resolution, adding that under the ten

without informing the president, but would leave
the war department as At was whes Grant assumed
the secretaryship, namely, vacant. The president
accurcs Grant of bad faith. At this hour nothing
has been decided on by the president.

patch announcing tl:e removal by General
Meade of (;Governor Jenkins, of Georgia, on
account of his relusal to sanction the payment

Mr. lrocdilow sworn-I scre tary. of the
streets and iandings ommittee; keeps a record
of the certificates of the comemlee. Witness
roduces book and find that the ertioate of P.
arquez for 3174 96 was approved on the
mf August, 186?. When suob onrtifloates are ap
proved they are seat to the fnane commlttoe;
ometimes to the office of the street oemmtsIoeer;
snetiemes they are takes to the latractorn
themselves. Witness cannot say what became
of the certificate above mentioned. Wit
se has nos recollectien of over giving this
certilcate to Marques or Correjolles. Does
not know Correjolles only by name. The oertle
cafes when given showed conoluaively that th
wetk was done; they are generally senat to the
finance committee; witnes does not remember to
whom he sent the cert9Wete; it should, aceerg
to the routine of business, have gene to the
finance committee, but he reiterates that he ea
not say where it wenoot.
S"oss examined-Questfon by Judge (bOses-
I see that the ten per oest certificate for the Piut
and Fourth Districts Is entered asapprovedon the
16th of Augost; I see the ame certificate i the
name of Frank Marqoues, amounting to 8$2,799 9,6.
again approved on the 20th September. In the
first entry it is approved as belonging ,to MoCal
loch. Can you explain why this double approval
Anvwer-Witness should judge that they were
two dierent certificates; by referring to the cero
tificaes would be able to answer the question.
Witners has never kept accountofcertlfioates. As
far as the signing wa concerned, they sometimes
came to his office before being signed by the
street commissioner. Witness is required to
furnish the secretary of the finance committee
with a list of all items wherein Mr. Marques's
neane appears on his books since July last.
Major Carr sworn-Be is secretary of the
finance committee; has charge of the boots and
records. Contractors' certificates have to be ap*
proved by the finance committee before they are
paid. He has the book now. Being asked to
refer to the ten per cent. certificate for repairs,
he ays that it was approved on the 2d of Sep.
tember, 1867, for $3174 96. When a certificate I
approved by the finance committee, as a general
thing witness takes it himself to the controller's
ofice, except, however, when a party Is in a
hutry and desires to take it over himself. Wit
ness never turned over to the street commasioner
approved envtieates exeept es one eeeaion,
which he considers was an error. The fiance
committee never approves a certilcate unless
signed by the street commissioner, that is when it
relates to his business. The secretary of the
streets sad landlngs committee generally brings
up oertificates from the street commissioner's de
partment Witness does not remember a single
case where a certificate bame direct from the
street commissioner's department to the faaoon
Cross-examined-Wltness has no recollection
of habst be did with the eertioate of Marques.
Does not know whether he gave it to Marques or
Corretolles. He genealsly takes the certicaltes
to the controller himself.
It clhaf--When it goes to the controller It goes
there for warrant on the treasurer. Witnees is re
quested to fornih the committee with a copy of
all entries since the first of July last, wherein the
name of Marquez appears.
Mr. Jos. P. Hornor offers in evidence original
certifi8cte of the ten per cent. paid to Marques,
and the receipt of Mr. Louney for $12 0O paid by

collection, ln June. Wittaes did tell Denis
Brown to draw money from the city treenurp for
another man ; It was in June last that he toldhim
to do so; he told him to draw it for one Mr. Raf

roots which he planted in the public squares;
these seeds were purchased on the Slst day of
May; cannot recollect when Mr. Baker esmonto

C,,ss srtm,eIe-Those seeds and roots were
lantted in lhe Iouglas Square, and a portion In

which witness has ever causned money to be
