Relief for ?ne South,
The following is tho debate in tho Senate on
Saturday last, on the proposition to relieve the |
distress of tho South :
Mr. Trumbull (rep.) of Ul., from the Judiciary !
Committee, lcported a joint resolution appro?
priating ono million of dollars for the relief of des?
titute people of the South and Southwest, of any
and all classes, to bo expended undsr the suoerin
tendonce of tho Commissioner of the Freedmen's |
Buroau in supplies of food. Mr. Trumbull, in ex?
plaining tho necessity for passing the above, said
that General Howard had called on tho Judiciary
Committee this morning and testified that unless
something of tho kind was done there would be
actual starvation among the disloyal portion of the
S. .uth. Foi mer appropriations had hoon sufficient
to provide for the actual wants of freodmen and
loyal refugees, but under the resolutions passing
them no money could be spent in relieving the
destitution of the disloyal peoplo of the South. It
was now asked to extend the aid to all alike. The
recommendation of the committee was $580,750
less than that asked for by General Howard.
After further discussion by Messrs. Stewart,
(rep.) of Novada, and Pomeroy, of Kansas, in favor
of the resolution,
Mr. Spraguo, (rop.) of B. ?., moved to amend
tho resolution by incroasin.' .'ir appropriation to

A debate Bprung upon the subjset of the r?solu
non, in tho courso of which Mr. Stewart said the
Indian Buroau was a cesspool into which all tho
surplus funds of tho country were teemed,
Mr. Harlan, (rep.) of Iowa, asked Mr. Stewart
where he got such information as wan anted that ?
Mr. Stewart replied in a speoch oritizing in gen
oral tones the management of Indian Affairs, and
the repeated conflict between the civil and military
authorities growing out of it.
Mr. Harlan said rhero was no such conflict. Tho
only conflict there was from a difference of opinion
between tho peoplo of the Territories and tho peo
Sle tit tho moro civilized regions as to the proper
res.tmont of the Indians. The people of the Ter?
ritories wero for tho extermination of the Indians,
and tho army sympathized with thom. The people
of the States held different opinions. Mr. Harlan
then denied that there was corruption in the In-,
dian Department of the Govern men t.
Mr. Johnson rose to suggest that the debate waa
taking too wide a rango, and wandering too far
from tho subject properly before the Senate.
Tho debate was resumed on the subject of the
resolution, and was participated in by Messrs.
Norton, Drake, Co olding, Howe, Saulsbury, Hen?
derson, Wilson, Doolittle, Corbett, Frelinghuysen
Tho resolution was then passed.
An Engl:sh journal says : "At no time since the

[SPECIAL CORRESPONDENCE OF THE DATL? NEWS ]
WASHINGTON, March 9.-Congress has now noth?
ing more important to pass upon than tho day it
will adjourn, and upon this question there is likely
to bo no little vexation of legislative spirit. True,
tho Sonate have a considerable list of Presidential
appointees to dispose of, and the number is being
largely aggregated every day, but as, at tho
present rate of senatorial confirmation, these
nominations could not receive final action for a
decade to come, it is manifest that the latter body
may quito as well retire and wait for a more con?
genial season for transacting the work in hand.
And apropos, ot the possibility of such a sensi?
ble conclusion hoing arrived at, it is woll to men?
tion tho rumor that hovers over the political cir?
cles of the capital to the effect that his Excellency
intends to take his revenge ofter tho prerogative
of his office, in immediately convening the 40th
Congress, after about the time it would seom likely
to have become comfortably settled, and
respectively diffused under the representative and
senatorial vines and fig trees of private lifo, and
again set,the Sonate at tho task of wrangling over
the Executive appointments.
This rumor is the more plausible from the fact
that there is manifest prejudice to our governmen?
tal resources, by reason of refusal to sanction Mr.
JOHNSON'S appointments. In the Postoffice Dop art
mont alone there is reported to be three millions of.
dollars in cash, at present outstanding in the hands
of chief clerks of posloffices, whose appointees
have been denied by the Senate from time to time.
These clerks, of course, give no bond, nor are re?
sponsible in the value of a picayune for moneys
lost, stolen or defaulted. In other departments
the same evil exists, and in none more deplorably
than in the line of Internal Revenue Collectors and -
Assessors. Theso latter districts are particularly
unsettled, and productive of szaoll revenue to the
Government by reason of the' continued local
: snarl over the agents for appraising and collection,
all of which is directly incident to the dictatorial
action of the Senatorial cabal'at .Washington.
And so it goes in every caprice of this "rump"
of a "rump Congress;" which, while it retards or
utterly defeats the harvest of Government re?
sources, piles up the liabilities of the national
purse', ' as though greenbacks. had but to be in
'creased and multiplied tho country over, to fill up
the measure of national prosperity.

Meantime the money-changers have been
reaping harvests upon an average rate of interest
of five per cent, a month; and, in frequent in?
stances, double that usury. And out of this, again,
has grown a system of mortgaging officers'
accounts and pay-rolls a twelvemonth in advance,
and finally the ruined principals have completed
the succession pf folly by forging duplicates, and
even triplicates, of their official vouchers against
the Paymaster. 'It is not an exaggeration to say
that the number of those despondents' aro twenty

tary districts of the South.
While dropping a tear over this item of fashion?
able vicissitude, I must not neglect to mention an
additional case in point : That A. H. LEE, Vho ab?
sconded about lunch time from the treasury de?
partment a few weeks ago, and who took with bim
a batch of seven-thirties, footing up to nearly
fifty thousand, has returned to the capital ofter an
eventful spree in St. Louis. He now enjoys tho
retirement of the public jafl. Society, which he
courted assiduously and successfully during th?
wintry gaieties gone by, has not yet applied for
admission to comfort the prisoner. VIDEX.
The Impeachment Question.
The Washington correspondent of the New York
Herald, under date of 7th hurt., says :
The debate in the House to-day on the. proposed
impeachment indicates pretty clearly tho temper
of momoers on that exciting subject. The ex?
treme Radicals still hug to their bosoms their old
darling of immediate Executive decapitation, but
the moderates advise prudence, deliberation and
calmness in prosecuting a work of such solemn
import. Mr. Ashley evidently intends to keep up
his fire on "tho man at the other end of the
avenue," for to-day he uttered an anti-Johnson
denunciation fiercer, if possible, than any before.
Gesticulating excitedly, he remarked that he would
say nothing as to the terrible doubt that oppress?
ed his mind, os to complicity with the assassination '
conspiracy, and the mysterious connection be?
tween death and treachery.
The utterance of this dark insinuation again
created a profound sensation among the spectators
assembled in the galleries, including a liberal rep?
resentation of the diplomatic corps. Tho Demo?
cratic members alone seemed to take the matter in
an unconcerned manner, laughing at Ashley's ex?
cited manner and interrupting him with semi
jocose questions. The speech of Mr. Spalding,
who called the "impeachment project ."a stupen?
dous folly," and asked if the policy of the Crom?
well times and the soenos enacted under Danton,
Murat and Robespierre were to be repeated, made
quite on impression. General Butler replied in a
characteristic manner to Mr. Spalding, but his
point was simply the old one that President John?
son should be removed at all hazards if he stood
in the way of peace,, harmony, unity, btw and re?
On this subject of impeachment it is difficult to
soo tho end. The extreme Radical element, which
favors hot-headed measures of suspension, secna
to have met with a check. I have heard Bopubli
? cans express the opinion that impeachment is all
humbug, that tho Judiciary Committee failed
miserably in sustaining any serious charge, and
that there had been enough of the matter until
the end of Andrew Johnson's term. This savors
very much of backing down from tho solemn po?
sition taken by the dominant party last session.
The action of the Senate caucus to-day, in laying
on the table tho proposition of last night's Repub?
lican caucus, changes suddenly the probabilities
that existed this morning of the' adjournment on
Monday next, the difficulty presenting itself of the
inability of one branob sdjourYdhg CkKgresa with?
out the consent of the other. It hos been made
manifest to-day that there is not only among many
of tho Republican members an unwilling concur?
rence with tho course dotermincd upon last night,
but so strong a hostility to this course on tho part
of a majority of the Senate, that it is impossible to
carry into effect lost night's determination. The
feeling entertained by a majority bf the Senate that
tho facts thus far elicitod by the House Judici?
ary Committee would provo a dangerous basis upon
which to proceed to impeachment will form tho
House to agree to. an adjournment to October
next. Senators take the position that if there is
any sincerity in the movement of the leading
prosecutors tho House ehou.d proceed immediate-'
ly to carry out their programme, or consent to an
adjournment over the summer months, and there?
by virtually acknowledge the abandonment of the
whole cracokion. A leading Repr?sentatif von be?
ing informed to-day of the action, or want of
action, of *ne Sonate' caucus, exclaimed, "I am
very glad, ot it." . -It-is claimed by some of tho
pronounced Conservatives that many of those who
voted for tho adjournment to May were inducoti to

NEW YORK, March 8.-Many years ago, -when tho
swill milk excitement was the all absorbing topic
of tho day here, when men grew rich by means of
tho disgraceful tramo in the milk of human un?
kindness to innocsnt cows, the Ledger made its
mark by exposing the cow-herd-ly details, and the
expose had the effect of increasing tho circulation
of tho Ledger and stopping the circulation of the
objectionable mille. Now, however, the evil has
taken fresh growth, the poor cows are again shut
un, cabined, cribbed and confined in dark, dank
places, and thoy give a quantity of bad, diseased
milk, which is sold for good healthy greenback.
Though tho Ledger may not take up arms again in
defence of the poor animals, the cows have anothor
champion and defender, or rather a host of them,
and the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to
Animals has drawn tho sword in their boll alf, I
call to mind tho pretty little nursery rhyme where
gratitude to tho poor cow is expressed in the
touching lines, "I thank the pretty cow, who gives
me milk to soak my bread," &c., and shudder at
tho thought that ungrateful men should subject
tho poor creatures to such torture as brings on all
diseases that cow flesh is heir to, for the purpose
of increasing the quantity, whilst it deteriorates
the quality of tho bread soaking compound. Por?
tia says that tho quality of mercy is not strained ;
the quality of swill milk is perhaps bost discovered
by straining the difference between mercy
and milk, wherefore must all men in general,
and milk-men in particular, be merciful to the
poor cowB, and to bring about this consummation
so devoutly to be wished for, this new phase of tho
milky-way, HANS BEECH and his cc-laborors are
staining every nerve to throw all the milk away
that comos from tho swilling process.
: C?ABK, WEBSTER & Co., the enterprising pro?
prietors of the gift establishment at No* 62 Brood

to them in the shape and form of a squad of offi?
cers, who mode a grand raid upon them yesterday.
These honest gentlemen were proprietors of the |

which it was modestly announced that the concern
was frorth $1,287,148, the entire amount of which
wouH|bo'distributed in;prizes to be. drawn for st
Cooper Institute on the 25th day of April next.
Thousands of yellow envelopes were found ad?
dressed to thousands of groen individuals, residing
for the most part in the rural districts, and tickets
with lucky numbers were scattered about most
abundantly, but the $1,287,148 were not found.
The "bankers,'' however, were arrested, together ;
with many outsiders, or rather insiders, who were
interested in tho success of the scheme, all are now
held in durance vile.
The Fenians are much elated on the strength of
the news of the uprising in Ireland, which is gene?
rally behoved; taken at best, however, there is not
much in tho news to be elated or violently excited
about, yot the Fenians aro rather imaginative and
hopeful, and they hug. the belief that the great
Irish ball has been opened at last. How the dan ce
will end remains to be seen; meanwhile the "Irish''
will bo the dance of dances, rivalling even the
SAM CO&LXEB and BARBEY AARON, the two un
Jerome-liko gentlemen of pugilistic fame, cannot J
agree as to the spot where they sholl disfigure each
other's countenances for a purse of five thousand |
dollars. CottiXXB wishes toight on Virginia soil,
but BARNEY objects to going to such a distance j
from his maternal relative, who resides hera.

The members of the new Dental College eat their
first annual dinner last night at the St James
Hotel; speeches were made on the subject of teeth;
toasts were drunk to men who deal in teeth, and j
it was proven lonclusivoly that when a glass is in?
serted between the front teeth of an individual,
and the liquor contained therein is carefully
poured down into the throat, through the mouth,
no harm ensues, and tho dental organization re- I
mains unimpaired, and ready for a repetition of
the process. It was a feast of reason, and teeth, [
and a flow of good wines, and the Dentists had t
jolly time generally, making first-rate speeches,
Binging good songs, and tolling .stories with the
most approved good Order. They seemed, all <
them, to be such a whole-souled, jovial, good
natured set of people, these happy drawers of teeth,
that one could hardly behove that they were the
some awful creatures who terrify us so when we '
take our seat in their easy (?) chairs, and tremble
as they handle their instruments of torture.
One among the good things said at the dinner,
or rather after the dinner, was in the form of i
conundrum, wherein it is asked why dentists are
always sad, and to which the reply is that they are
always looking down in the mouth.

In tho Houso of Representatives, Thursday, Mr.
BKOOKS, of Now York, denounced with groat
warmth tho conduct of the revolutionists in and
out of Congress. Tho following passage from his
speech gives us his view of the present and future
of tho country: ?
Ho would say to tho gentleman from Ohio [Mr.
Spaulding], who stood beru as a Girond against
tho Jacobins, that the history of the Girondists
was in this place to be written; and although such
mon as ho attempt to arrest, the revolution, he
[Mr..Brooks] did not think the revolution was here
to stop. He did not believe that it was half writ?
ten or half acted out, unless all history was at
fault. Wo aro now repeating the history of Au?
gustus and Julius Caesar, and the Government is
passing from a republic to a despotism. Revolu?
tions never stop. The Girondists, the Conserva?
tives, aro to be overwhelmed by the Jacobins; and
when we shall have lost all our Uberties, some fu?
ture Napoleon, yot unknown, will riso up from tho
chaos and rescue the country from anarchy
through a military despotism. Honce the resist?
ance of tho gentleman from Ohio [Mr. Spaulding],
and tho partial resistanco of the gentleman from
Pennsylvania [Mr. Miller], would bo in vain.
Moro than one-half of tho territory of the old Re?
public was already undor a military despotism,
and there was no more protection in the Southern
States for life, liberty or property, than under tho
dominions of the Sultan or the Czar. The mUitary
government bill, now over ten millions of people,
white and black, was to bo extended over tho
North and West before the revolution was finish?
ed. While he greeted the voice of the gentleman
from Ohio [Mr. Spaulding], and welcomed the
calmly resisting tones of the gentleman from
Pennsylvania. [Mr. Miller], he knew, if history
were correct, there was tobe no escape for any of
us. The gentloman from Massachusetts [Mr. But?
ler], in his- specifications of impeachment, said
that this House would be false to itself if it shrank
from impeachment now. The gentleman was
right. The ball of revolution which had been set
in motion was not to be stopped, but was to roU
over the House and the country. They who em?
bark in revolutions can never shrink. They must
always go on.
Congress, like the elder Pendennis, patronizes
religion because it is respectable. It pays a par?
son to.do its praying, and. he pays them bock by
making his prayers harmonize exactly with the
spirit and policy of the majority who elect him.
Mr. RAYMOND, of the New York Times, who hos
been a witness to the business for the last two
years, gives his impressions as follows ;
Religion, like everything else in Washington, is
shamelessly prostituted to the necessities and con?
veniences of partisan politics. Chaplains are
elected just as door-keepers and tide-waiters are
appointed, on account of their political opinions,
ind they are expected to pray and preach in the
service and for the profit of the party that eleots
them. Porty zeal is often quite os apparent in the
opening prayer of the Congressional Chaplain as in
the wara harangue of the Treasury Clerk.
The Chaplain is expected to pray for his porty
Friends and ol his porty foes. Usually his petition
is a summary of tho proceedings of the preceding
day, and a statement of what ought to be done on
che day at hand. For every bill passed and vote
given m accordance with party purposes and plans,
devout thanks (if anything of that kind con be
called dovout) are returned to the Almighty, who
is earnestly exhorted to. open the eyes and chango
the votes of everybody who stands on the other
3ide. . The .irreverence .of some of these so-called
provers often horners on blasphemy. They are
seldom anything more than stump-speeches mada
with dosed eyes and addressed ostensibly to the
Father of au; while in sentiment, language and.
general style, they-would shook any mteUigent and
A Southern Soldier's Opinion.
General CHAXMEBS, of Mississippi, whose gal?
lantry mode him conspicuous in the war, has writ?
ten a letter lo REVERDY JOHNSON (dated March
2d), from which the following passage is taken:
I believe firmly in the doctrine of secession, and
I behove that we did secede, and that when we
were conquered we were a foreign nation; and I
thorefore believe that- the United States have a
right to prescribe new terms if we should make a
new alliance with her.
Believing this, and knowing that tho President
al. ne cannot make a treaty of peace with a foreign
government, I never have believed that the action
of the President in his efforts to reconstruct the
Union was right ; but I gladly supported him and
supported his plan, because it was more liberal to
my people than the congressional plan.
But since he cannot carry out his plan-einoe
tne Ktrja^'e-Couxi canil?iCncTW"'Ilford rxa adequate
protection, and may bo soon changed so as to be
hostile to us-and since the Louisiana hill and the
confiscation bill are being pressed by the extreme
Radicals, with a fair prospect of forcing them on
us if the agitation continue, I am for closing the
contract with Congress on the terms which it pro?
poses, . . \ ?-. -
A TartrMPH OF FBEEDOH.-The mails ' by the'
steamer City of Antwerp contain details of the re-.
sf oration of the Hungarian Constitution by th?
Emperor of Austria. This event is a great triumph
for the Hungarians, at which the friends of free?
dom in every country should rejoice. It marks
the success of the canse for which Kossuth was
driven into exile in 1848-'49. The Hungarians, it
win be remembered, flew to arms in defence of
their constitutional rights, which were jeopardized
ny the centralizing policy of the Austrian Govern?
ment. The result belongs to history.' 'Austria, in
the pride of her power and in the first flush of suc?
cess, abolished the Constitution of Hungary, and
undertook to govern the kingdom by military law.
The Hungarians adopted a policy of inactivity.
They submitted to what they could not prevent.
They could not oppose Austria by physical force,
but they wearied and weakened her by o moral op?
position and a passive resistanco until Austria is at
last forced to conciliate them by the formal resto?
ration of their ancient constitutional privileges.
. The above extraordinary editorial is from the N,
Y. Cornmerciat Advertiser ot the 6th,. (Radical)-a
taper which exults over the action of - Congress in
placing over the South a military, despotism, and
has had no policy huta ''centralizing" one. A
few years hence, it may have come sufficiently to
its senses and to a knowledge pf the use of terms,
to print the some , article, substituting the ten
Southern States for Hungary, and Congress for
THE POETE CONCEDING TO CRETE.-The maila
from Europe bring us intelligence of great uneasi?
ness in tho Ottoman Government. The Ministers
of the Sultan believe the situation to be critical,
and this has led them to entertain the idea of
"Representative Chambers," in order to conciliate
the Greeks'. ' This; idea is not a new one. In 1859
it was in tile plan of the great conspiracy which
numbered sixty to eighty thousand adherents.
The spirit bf tho reform demanded by that party
has survived the suppression of the insurrection
referred to, and now breaks ont anew. The brother
of the Viceroy of Egypt has placed himself at the
head of the Reform party, .and the very heir to the
throne; MATJBAD EFFENDI, is favorable to the views
entertained by the party. It is no wonder then, that
the Porte yields to this pressure, and the fear of
trouble with its powerful subject, the Viceroy of
Egypt, and the concession to the Greeks will prob?
ably save the empire from disruption.
Episcopal. METHODIST CHURCH.-The action of
the Baltimore Conference, has secured what
that Conference so much desired-a change of the
name of the church from "M. E. Church, South,"
to "Episcopal Methodist Church," and also, we
suppose, the introduction of tho lay feature into
tho ruling bodies of the church. To ratify these
changes the former proposition lacked only forty
eight votes before the Baltimore Conference acted,
and the latter a somewhat larger number, but not
so large, we think, as that of the votes cast for it
in this Conference. The former change disembar?
rasses the church in the border and northern
States, while the latter will probably cause the ac?
cession to the Episcopal Methodist Church of the
entire Methodist Protestant Church in the South?
ern States (including Maryland).. It will be seen
that several munsters from the Northern Metho?
dist Church have already joined tho . Baltimore
Conference. When Dr. Doggett, as he then was,
and Dr. Edward first suggested this change of
name, we took occasion, to approve tho proposition.
t Richmond Dispatch.
A NICE POINT or LAW.-Chancellor Johnson, of
South Carolina, has just given-an interesting de?
cision. The case was one of a purchase made in
1862, when the buyer paid two thousand dollars in
Confederate money at thfr timo of tho purchase,
and gave two notes for thoTialance, one payable at
twelve months, the other at two years. In 1883
the first note waa paid, when' due, in Confederate
morney. In 1864 a part of the second note was
paid in Cc??aderato money, about a month before
the note was doe. When this note matured, the
purchaser came forward with the remainder and
offered it in Confederate money, brit it-was re?
fused. The question came up whether the pur?
chaser had not performed bia contract as far ss ho
could be expected to do Ba After an able argu?
ment the Court held that the balance was still dat?,
and that it should be computed In the proportion
that the whole of tho original debt bears to the
value of the purchase in present currency, giving
. credit for all payments in tho same ratio:- . An ap?
peal was token.
