Tho Messagu was read. The Secretary Gf *ue
Treasury was called on for information regarding

In the House several communications were read
of no general interest. Mr. Stevens renewed bis j
bill for schools in the District, which was re?
The ^constriction Committee were directed :o
inquire into the expediency of dividing Texas.
Mr. Eldridge objected, saying: that Texas wa3
under despotism enough.
Mr. Stevens asked leave to introduce a resolu?
tion regarding a census of the conquered territory,
with a view of facilitating the admission of tho
Southern Slates. On objection being made thc
motion was withdrawu.
Thero was considerable indignant discussion re?
garding tho premature publication of the mes?
sage. The message was read and referred to the
Committee of the whole.
The Eleotion Committee reported. Beck, Jones,
Grover and Knott were sworn in. Tremble, Brown
and Young were excluded, pending further in?
Mr. Schenck, from the Committee of Ways and
Means, reported a bill that all cotton raised in thc
United States after the year 1867 be exempt from
tax. Mr. Schenck refused an amendment making
the same law apply to sugar, and ho proceeded to
explain why it was not made to apply to cotton
raised this year, one-fifth was alioady on tho mar?
ket A very large portion had pas=ed from the
hands of the producers. The growers would de?
rive but little benefit, and the committee believed
that it would be impolitic and inexpedient. Mr.
Brooks moved c substitute, that th?- tax bo abol?
ished, and that no American manufactured cotton
goods shall bc entitled to the benefit of thc exist?
ing drawback, unless shipped within ninety days
of this act. A general debate ensued. Messrs.
Covode, Ela and Butler approved the repeal.
Messrs. Logan, Blair, Muller, Garfield, Niblack
and Addison favored Schenck's bill. Messrs.
Barre and Pile favored Brooks' substitute. With?

GERMAN IJIMIOBATION. - The welcome extended
by the citizens of Charleston to the hundred and
fifry German immigrant? who arrived at that port
on Wednesday, by the Bremen bark Gauss, under
thc auspices of the State Immigration Board, is a
happy omen. It is probable that not a few of thc
five hundred and thirteen German passengers who
arrived at New York on Thursday hythe Bremen
steamship Weser, which, bv-the-by, has made tho
tastest passage over made by a screw steamer
from Southampton to this port-niuo days and
three hons-may find their way to tho "South.
German immigration to the South will unques?
tionably provo as invaluable a sorroo of advantage
to that section as it ha9 hitherto provod to the
great Northwest. Tho Gorman immigrants bring
over with them not only the wealth of muscio and
intelligence, with frugal and industrious babita,
but also no small stock of bard silver dollars.
Whorever thc German immigrants may go, they
constitute a useful and important clement in our
population; and especially in the South, in its
presont condition, they should be heartily wel?
comed.- New York Herald.
FIBE IN SAVANNAH.-On Saturday morning a
Uro broke out in a small iramo building on the
Northeast corner of Jones and Purse streets,
directly east of tho Central Railroads shops. Tho
house, owned and occupied by Mr. Francis Kane,
was speedily destroyed, and tbe strong: westerly
wind then prevailing carried the uro to the adjoin?
ing buildings on Jones otreot, two of which were
completely destroyed. At this point was a small
house cw?cd and occupied by Mr. Conway, former?
ly a member of tho city police, which was pulled
down in order to prevont tho further extension of
the fire in that direction. This enabled the fire?
men to make a succeesful stand and stoo the fire.
The house where tho tire ordinated had an in?
surance of $300 on it in tho agency of Mr. JohnT,
Thomas. Tue next house ou thu" east was a large
two story one, owned by Mr. John Roach, and
oceupied'by Mrs. Daly as a boarding house. This

dwelling and grocery store ol Mr. F. Honnemyer,
who succeeded in saving a largo portion of his

Mr. Conway, whoso houso was palled down to
arrest the progress of tho fire, had just o impiet d
