WASHINGTON, January 15_In tho Senate, Mr.
Wiley presented a momoriat for a Constitutional
Amendment abolishing all inequality in political
rights on account of raco and color. It was re?
ferred to tho Finance Committee.
In the House, on motion of Mr. Cobb, the Com?
mittee on Cliiims was instructed to ascertain and
report the facts connected with the capture of Jef?
ferson Davis and tho connection of the 4th Michi?
gan and 1st Wisconsin Cavalry Regiment? there?
with. Tho committee has power to sond for per?
sons and papers.
The House then proceeded to thc consideration
of the Nebraska Hill, and a general debate followed;
n vote to bo taken at 3 o'clock.
The Chair laid before the Senate a communica?
tion from the Governor of South Carolina, trans?
mitting tho certificate of election of James B.
Campbell. Luid on the table.
Mr. Howard called up the resolution heretofore
introduced by him, instructing the Committee on
Foreign Relations to inquire into the present re?
lations bctivccn France, Mexico and tho United
States-as to tho possibility of the withdrawal of
the French troops, aud tho ability of Maximilian
to sustain himself, &c. Mr. Howard said our trade
and commerce had been so much injured by a war
camed on during sevoral years, tho countrv
wanted to know tho exact status. The dignity and
interest of this nation require that this Govern?
ment should take such measures as will secure the
immediate restoration of poace and tho reinstate?
ment ol" the Republican Government. The resolu?
tion was laid aside for the bill regulating tho ten?
ure of omeo, and tho latter was discussed up to
the time of adjournment. >
Tho House took up the Bill for the admission of
Nebraska into tho Union. The Senate had inserted
thc condition io admission that thc word "white"
in tho Nebraska Constitution should not discrimi?
nate against citizens on account of race or color.
Mr. Bo ut well moved to amend by substituting as a
condition precedent, that tho "Nebraska Legisla?
ture should give suffrago to all, without distinction
of race or color.
During thc debate Mr. Davis, of Now York, de?
cided that if Congi ess had a right to impose con
ditions upon a now State, it could also enforce
these conditions without thc cousent of tho peo?
ple. Farnesworth said tbat Congress plainly hod
that right. It was ?impiy granting a Territory a
charter to bec mc a Stato, and there was as much
authority to impose a condition as to impose a
condition on a Territory while it is a Territory.

Our Washington Letter.
[SPECIAL CORRESPONDENCE OF Ixiti DAILY NEWS.]
WASHINGTON, January 12.-Tho impeachment
has taken definite shape, sinco my last letter on
that subject to THE NEWS, and tho inquisition may
now bo considered duly inaugurated under auspi?
ces duly Radical. Tho first act of the committeo
was to have a sort of informal talle over the wholo
matter, to which ASHLEY, the mover of tho im?
peachment resolution now boforo them, was in?
vited. Mr. BOOEBS, tho sole Democrat on the com?
mittee, received no intimation that thorc was to bo
conforonco of this character, and, thoroforo, failed
to put in an appearance. This initial discussion of
tho question of prosecuting tho Executivo elicited
a fact that overv old congressional observer had
already surmised, viz.: that ASHLEY was without
pi oof or reason to back up tho charges he had
submitted. This was in nowise a surprise to his
partisan friends on tho committee, who have
kuown, throughout, of his cntiro irresponsibility,
nnd want of oven montai capacitv in the conduct bf
legislation. Tho talk that ensued finally resulted '
in a determination to make a pretence of appoint?
ing throo of tho committee-Bouf-woll, of Massachu?
setts, Wilson, of Iowa, and Williams, of Pennsylva?
nia-to act as a sub-committee for the oxclusivo
management of tho investigation against Andi ew
Johnson. This is simply a rtiso, whereby it is pro
goscd to keep Mr. Bogers, the Democratic ment?
or, in i gnoranco of the movements and events in
committee. Tho romaining members will be aw?
fully posted and allied with the progress of tho in?
vestigation, as though thoy belonged to the trio,
nominally set up as the grand and exclusive inqui?
sitors of this star chamber examination. Up to this
time tho Judiciary Committee have bold daily meet?
ings, but without tulum,' any testimony in the pro?
mises. It has been proposed to call Jno AV For?
ney, the publisher of tho Chronicle at somo one of
the secret seances of tho committee, ?no DUI pris?
ing natural facility for getting up evidence to suit
any emergency, as demonstrated a few years since
during tho progress of tho famous Forrest divorce
case, doubtless actuated tho cornmitteo in agreeing
to a summons.
It is but fuir ;o say that tho majority of Radicals
in either wing of tho Capitol scout the idea of im?
peachment with the utmost derision-not from a
Lack of malignity towards ibo Administration, but
"rom a ready understanding that in the institution
>f such a courso of procedure lies the certain
renn of party discomfiture and ruin. As for Mr.
tohnsori, I do not think ho loses any of his night
y repose becauso of tho inception of this force;
md, so far as his own course was to apply to such
in exigency, that has been determined months
.go, when the atmosphere was less rife with Radi?
al denunciation tha . now. I have known, almost
rom the first, what that determination has been,
nd I apprehend that in thc actual visitation of
he crisis there can be no harm in divultring tho
-rundation upon which it rests. Once summoned
? answer charges of impeachment. Mr. Johnson
rill return a messago in writing, .addressed to
'.ongr.ss, in which ho will proclaim, first, to tho
louse: 'T deny the validity of your indictment,
jr it was found by a Grand Jury incomplete and
-.sufficient for its preferment." Ai d to the Sou?
te: "I rcfuso your panel; it is lacking in tho
rcsonce of twontv-tw-i membera, whose absenco
oprive3 your body of tho semblance of right to
institute' a jury for tho imp?wihment of tho hum
lest -crvant of the Government." If this Con?
fess cannot, try the President, it cannot impeach
im; and from' those that understand the Presi?
enta will, in action conforming to previously cx
ressed conviction, it is easy to see that ho will
ibmit to no forced abdication of the Presidency,
ad that if such a policy is meditated and atterupt
L it would precipitate a bloody collision in the
?ry streots of the Capital, and mayhap at the
oir?ais of the White Eouso. Are tho Rads ready
ir this ? I think not.
IE NATIONAL BANKS-CHASE AND THE PRESIDENCY.
The National Banks get more and more out of
amor, and distrustful of Secretary Mcculloch
.-cry day, and so are constantly casting about for
means of hedging themselves from any Dossihle
iture reverses that may transpire to their inter
?ts by a too rigid enforcement of the pains and
ena!ties attaching to infringement of the National
anking law. Secretary Mcculloch is not dispot ed
> look very leniently upon the palpable evasions
f the law that are from time to time reported by
ie Comptroller of the Treasury. Among other
revisions of the law for the regulation of National
;anks, is one requiring each bank to keep con?
tently on deposit a sum, in legal tenders, equal to
ne-fifth of their authorized circulation. About
?vo-thirds cf the banks, by their own monthly
tatements to the Comptroller, axe not complying
.ith this provision, and the other third has hit
pon tho sharp practice of keeping this deposit in
heir vaults hi the shape of compound interest
otes, multiplying their principals at tho rate of
ix per cent.,* and with two . or three years
o run. Originally, there was about ono hun- ga
red and forty-five millions of these notes is- Pr
ued, first in payment of Government employees (
nd portions of the Federal army, only to bo gath- Pr
red up and hoarded eventually by every broker do
rho could lay his bands upon them. Sixty mil
imo -" 1,^,1.1 Kv th ix KAW Ym-V Kants alone*
,nd what troubles the Secretary of tho Treasury is
he prospect of -having a preponderance of this
me hundred and forty-five millions presented to
lim simultaneously two years hence, compounded Br
pith an -interest that has grown monstrously du- T.
ing a five years war. There is a Bill now before i
he House proposing to make the banks surrender of
hese compound interest notes for redemption in dc
ommon legal tenders, and this is a cause of ner- 1
ouanesa to the banks. In an extremity like this, ed
t is natural that the banks should cast about Mi
hem for tho means of averting such disagreeable pa
ircumstances in the future; and this seems lately an
o have been satisfactorily and almost unanimous- in
y determined in bespeak ng the election of Chief cit
ustico Chase to the next Presidency. The latter's ?
dminiatration of the affairs of the .treasury was J?
f tho most favorablo character to the banks, tn
nd thus behove that in his olevation to the Presi- !
Lency, no minister of the finances would be tolera- in
ed in his Cabinet who did not favor and overlook in|
heir shortcomings. Under thia influence the Na- wi
ional Banks willbe found to be a most powerful afl
?nd interested combination" in the canvassing for ' ~
ho next Republican nomination to the Presidency;
.nd already, so well is this und-astood, that it has of
:ome to be a matter of open reference with Chaso o?
md his friends, who aver that they can have ton nt
aillions of dollars to carry tho nomination with, as Bi
he proceeds of voluntary assessments of National ca
.tanks all through tho North.
ANNIVERSARY BATTLE OF NEW ORLEANS.
Tho banquet given by the Democratic Central
Committee in this city, on the 8tb, in honor of tho
iimivorsary of the Battle of New Orleans, was a
.erv elegant affair. Ba addition to?the Pr&idont's
jresenco, there was also a very distinguished at
judanco of conservative celebrities. The speeches
vero particularly eloquent, Senator Doolittle u
peaking as I have never heard him speak before,
ind Senator Hendricks outdoing even tho best of
he very handsome elf irts we have had from him
n Congress this year past. The President, I hap
>en to lanow, was earnestly remonstrated with by
cveral weak-kneed friends against the propriety
if appearing at a Democratic banquet, affirming
hat it would only inflame* Congress. Mr. Johnson i
Irily remarked that it was unfortunate that Con- ^
-ress was so inflammable, and ordered his car- -,

NEW ORLEANS, January 10, 1867.
IYM. H. C. KINO, Esq., Editor of the New Orleans
In your letter this morning yon publish an arti?
llo from the New York Herald containing some ro
narks relative to tho speech I am reported to
tavo made at Onton. Hiss., to the Congressional
ixcursionists lately in this city. Tho Herald ia in
rror. I made no spoech at Canton or elsewhero
o those excursionists: but conversed with them
reoly, and openly told them tho South had fought
he North so desperately bocause it was defending
?htit it conceived to be its constitutional rights;
hat having appealed however to the arbitration of
rms, it yiolded to tho decision which was piven
gainst it; that I believed tho pooplo of the South
rere now willing to accept the Constitution as
ratio by tho war and understood by tho Supremo
krort of tho United States.
I said also, in my opinion, questions of secession
nd slavery were forc er settled, and, so for os I
to revive them; that we
mst now direct our energies and our vitality to
jpairing tho damages of war and restoring to our
omcs some of those comforts and that prosperity
hich they formerly onioyod. In answer to tho
acstions of some of the excursionists, if I
lought tho South would accept tho Constitn
oii.il Amendment, I replied that, eschewing
eilitics, and attending strictly to private busl
2ss and tho duties of my position; I had littl"
>portunity, except through newspapers, to as
irtain the public sentiment on tho subject; but
they dosircd to know my individual opinion,
would say that tho South would not, ana
lould - not, accept thoso amendments, even if |
csonted os a finality, for its interests and
anhood forbado it; that wo well knew wo are
iw at the mercy of tho North, but that
e South would never do anything which its
mor could not approve to protect its interest,
d I believo would remain passive spectators of
o struggles for power go?vr on at the North, ra?
ng on tue sober second-thought and sense of
3hce of both parties to protect us. 1 added P
9ugh, at the fall of tho Confederacy, instead of d
ing to a foreign country to swear allegiance to its
vornment, I preferred remaining in my own and

ie Row Among the New Torie Council?
rhe New York papers have the following oc?
cult of tho row in the Council Chamber, in that
y, on Thursday : _
Che Board of Councilmen held its second meeting
tho aftornoon, and shortly after the commence?
nt of thc proceedings a soene occurred which
raited in the breaking np of the meeting amid
3 wildest confusion. The Democratic members
Lng incensed at the alleged defection of Mr. ,
inkman (who was elected to the Presidency of |
3 Board by the Bepu'blicans), endeavored to
do tho proceedings of the previous session. Mr.
eeno, tho Clerk, having concluded the reading
the minutes of the preceding meeting, Conncil
in Stocom (a former candidate for the Presi
ncy of the Board) rui/ved to strike out of the I ?
n? les so much of the same as related to tho '
?clon of tho President.
Hie President ruled the gent emau ont of order,
d declared tho minutes approved by a majority
the members of tho board so vating. An ap?
ed was then made from tho .decision of the
air, and the President ruled the appeal ont of
1er, and in doing sp held that there were no
les governing the boord at the present time.
Councilman Hartman arose and said that ho 1
vc notice of a protest against tho action of the
esident. That gcnUeman waa a perjurer, ic
Councilman Long tuen threw an inkstand at the

Councilman Long, amid the cries and confusion
tho members of the Board and the lobby, or- |
red their arrest by a policeman.
Messrs. Brinkman and McClenahan wore arrest
, and Mr. Long made a complaint before the
ivor, who, ofter hearing the statements of the
rties, discharged them on their own recogniz
ces, they pledging themselves to keep the peace
future. The affair created the most intense el?
ement around the City Hall.

The difficulty among the Councilmen originated !
the alleged, defection of Mr. Brinkman, who hav?
er, it is sai adjoined a RiBg. Democratic caucus,
lien, with himself, comprised thirteen members,
berwurd betrayed it to vibe twelve remaining I
Btnbsrs o" the Board. By this oct, it is aUeged.
r. Brinkman procured his election os President
the Board, and utterly shattered tho brittle slate

?ted cabal. On yesterday's assomb?ng of the
eiard. ho was several times styled a perjurer, r&&~< .

BOB PROSPECTS-REPUBLICAN EXECUTIVE COMMIT?
NEW ORLEANS, January iL-Advices respecting
e attitude of the freedmen and planters, as to
o future course of work, are favorable. The
nner aro now generally contracting, where good
ops were made lost year, for shares, and where
d crops were made, for wages. In cases where
unters desire to change terms'they must bid'
gh. Amicable feelings seom to prevail every
lere, especially where no troops are stationed.
The New Orleans Tribune declares the charges
jainst President Johnson contain no specifica
)na of overt acts, and amount only to rmpnfco

POOH OLD THAD I-The result of the Republican
taucus at HarriBbutrg on Thursday, in nominating
limon Cameron for United States Senator for
?ennaylvania, shows conclusively that the Jacobin
loetrtaes of Thad. Stevens cannot be swallowed by
h? people of thatState. Ho received onlyseven
rotea out of the eighty-one cast. Forney's influ
>neo in Pennsylvania may also be calculated by
his number of Republican votos. It is tufts ?vi?
tent that neither poor Old Thad nor the Chevalier
Eotney eau load' a ?JirporaVs guard in their own
3tate. The stomach ot tho Republican party there
es too weak to digest the pernicious Jacobin stuff
which Old Thad prescribes for them.-New York I
