THE DISTRICT OF CDLflLBIA BILL-POS8IBILITV OE
A DEFEAT OF THE COTTON TAX REPEAL BILL
OENEBAL AN'COCK-JOHN MITCHEL AND THE FE?
WASHINGTON, December 20.-The veto of tho
bill striking the word white from District ordi?
nances did not come in to-day. There is sonic
difference of opinion, but the presumption is tba:
this withholding of the veto amounts to a pocket
There was a tull meeting of thc Cabinet to-day.
A count to-day indicates that the bill for the re?
peal of tho cotton tax, had tho vote been taken,
would have failed by two votes. An ultimate modi?
fication of the tax is probable; but it will hardly
apply to this year's crop.
A paragraph current that General Hancock was
a member of the Military Commission which hung
Mrs. Surratt, is untrue.
Cassady (Democrat), who is the caucus candi?
dato for Senator from California, is a promiuent
lawyer, formerly of New York.
John Mitchel declines the Presidency of the Fe?
Revenue receipts to-day $326,000.
WASHINGTON, December 20.-After the introduc?
tion and reference of some unimportant resolu?
tions, the debate on the cotton tax was resumed.
Wide and wild views were expressed, when, with?
out taking: action, or reading the amendatory Re?
construction bill, the Senate went into Executive
session and adjourned.
The bill forfeiting public lands granted to South?
ern railroads came up. Mr. Julian contended that
only the-New Orleans and Opelousas Railroad have
complied with the terms of General Grant. The
matter waa finally postponed to the second Tuee
day in January.
The Virginia 'on v nt ion.
RICHMOND, December 20.-A resolution was in?
troduced asking Congress to continue in service
all officers of the Freedmen's Bureau now on duty
in Virginia until the State is reconstructed. After
a debate, in which it was generally agreed that
the Bureau bad proved itself a beneficial institu?
tion, but had some bad men in it who ought to be
mustered out, the resolution was defeated by a
vote of ayes 23, nays 49.
The committee reported a bill of ? ights and two
articles of the constitution. The only change from
the old bill of rights is a clause makiri allegiance
to the United States Government paramount to
that due the l?tate Government. Referred.
The convention adjourned until January 2.
The Gtoorgia Convention.
ATLANTA, December 20.-The Convention passed
an ordinance to-day to levy and collect a tax ot
one-sixteenth of one per cent. It also requires
the State Treasurer to advance 140,000 to the dis?
barring officer of the Convention.
SAVANNAH, December 20.-There was a large
Conservative meeting held last night, endorsing
the action of the Macon Convention. One ol the
resolutions is as tollows: "That our object is to
maintain in tact the constitutio n of our fathers
and the rights of the States thereunder.
The Civil Rights Bill in MobUe-Mayor
Horton Found Guilty.
MOBILE, December 20.-The trial of Mayor Hor?
ton, Pope's Appointed, for a violation of the Civil
Rights bill, in the case of Charles Archie Johnson,
a negro, was concluded to-day. This trial was oc?
casioned by illegal banishment of said Johnson
from the city. The case was fully and ably argued
before Judge Busteed, of the United States Dis?
trict Court. The case provoked considerable dis?
cussion and interest among the people. It is re?
garded a fair test of the protection afforded by the
bill and resulted in a verdict of Kuil:y, rendered a
few moments after the jury had retired. The sen?
tence will be promulgated at 12 o'clock to-morrow.

THAD. STEVENS LATEST PLAN.
INTERESTING DEBATE IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESEN
lu the House ot* Representatives at Washington
on Wednesday last, as already reported by tele
graph, tho bill of Mr. Stevens in relation to recon?
struction w as amended aud passed by yeas 101,
nays 39. It alters the provision requiring >i ma?
jority of tho registered votes tor the new constitu
tion to a majority of the votes cast. Tho second
section provides for tho election of representa
uves a*, the time of tho election on the constitu?
tion, who ?hal] take their seats at the session suc?
ceeding the one at which their States are admit?
ted. lu this form it was passed, the third section,
providing for the new ratio of representation, hav?
ing been stricken out. Vie copy au abstract of
the debate :
Mr. Ashley, of Ohio, nsintr to u privileged ques?
tion, called up the motion borato tore submitted by
nim to reconsider thc vote whereby the bill to fa?
cilitate tho restoration of the late rebel States
was referred to tho committee on reconstruction.
Mr. Ashley said he understood that the com?
mittee on reconstruction had agreed upcu a l ill
embracing the feature of his bill, and ho would
therefore yield to Mr. Stevens, of Pennsylvania,
to introduce his bill.
Jlr. Bingham, of Ohio, said that was a mistake,
as his colleague's (Mr. Ashley's) bill had boen vo?
ted djwn in tho committee.
Thc vote whereby thc bil! waa committed wa.
reconsidered, and tho bill v as before the House.
Mr. Stevens then moved to strike out all after
the enacting clauso of Mr. Ashley's bill and to in?
sert the bill offered by him yesterday, and the
terms nf which were given in the report of that
After tho bill had boen read, Mr. Stevens per?
fected the bill by according eleven Representatives
to the State of Virginia, that State having been
Mr. Bingham, of Ohio, moved to amend by
striking out the third section of thc substitute,
which designates the number of representatives
for each State.
Mr. Maynard desired to odor an amendment pro?
viding that the constitutional conventions of tho
Southern States shall have power to provide for
temporary civil governments to exist until the
States shall have been duly admitted, and direct?
ing the military commanders to sustain such tem?
porary civil governments; and requiring such con?
ventions to enfranchise all citizens who have prov?
ed loyal to the govetnmont.
Mr. Bingham objected to tho amendment, and.
as it required unanimous consent, it was not con?
: Mr. Ingersoll, of Illinois, thought tho bill and
i amendments should bc printed, and dosired to sub?
mit a motion to that effect, but Mr. Stevens declin?
ed to yield for that purpose.
Mr. Ingersoll gavo notice that he would move to
have the hill printed if the previous quostiou was
Mr. Stevens said there wa.? always sonio objec?
tion to everything he had heard of either on earth
or in Heaven. Hero is a bill which he had sup?
posed every member would be willing to vote for.
I-, is one ot' the simplest bills in tbo world, and no
man can possibly misunderstand it. lu thc first
tection it simply rcstores thc majority principio in
thc adoption of the State constitutions; the second
section s inply empowers tho people of tho South?
ern States to Vote for representatives in Congress I
at t ao samo time that they vote upon thc question
of ratifying thc constitution; and when the States
are admitted those representatives shall bo enti?
tled to admission in the Congress of the United
'1 hat is r i io whole of tho bill, except thc third .
section, which the gentleman from Ohio (Mr. \
Bingham) proposed to strike out. That third sec- ^
tion has simply fixed the representation and de- j
dared how many representatives tho States namod j
should be entitled to until a further apportion- j
meat shall bo made. This representation had t
been tncroased, as it was believed, to thc number ,
they would be entitled to as tho result of tho lib- ,
eration of tho slaves. He could not accept the
amendment of Mr. Maynard, because it proposes c
to substitute civil authority speedily for military \
authority. He did not think the time had yot ar?
rived for the substitution of civil authority, as
there were still accounts coming up here of the
most atrocious robberies and murders in tho
South. It was only this morning that he had re?
ceived a letter from New Orleans showing a terri?
ble condition of affairs thero, especially siuco Han?
cock has been in command, and he was satisfied
that an equally painful state of affairs existed in
Texas and Arkansas. Ho was therefore opposed
to an absolute withdrawal of tho military until
those outlaw States fhall all be brought into the
Mr. Bingham, of Ohio, said he bud no objection
to the first and second sections of the bill. Tho
first section was intended to restore tho majority
principio in elections, and it would bo remem?
bered that ho had advocated this measure when
the original Reconstruction bill was under con?
sideration. The second section might bc deemed
surplusage and unnecessary, as the people have
already the power under tho constitution to elect
representatives. The socond soction is there?
fore, in aid of the law, and there need be no ob?
jection to it ; but thc third section is clearly vio?
lative of tho Constitution of the United.States and
of the legislation of Congress.
Tho power of Congress over the apportionment
of members is very clearly defined. It is to be
made every ten years, and he did not recognize
the right of every succeeding Congress to change
.tho basis of representation when once fixed. W ith
himself th-t objection would bo all-sufficient, and
he had therefore moved to Btrike out that section:
but if the House refused to sinke it out, ho could
not vote for the bill with that clause in. Take tho
State ot South Carolina for instauce. Under tho
apportionment of 1861 that State was allowed four
representatives in Congress, and it was not thc
impression then that South Carolina would in?
crease so rapidly that she could possibly be enti?
tled to six representatives at this time. South
Carolina has not more than 800,000 inhabitants,
and if she is entitled to six representatives, then
Ohio, with har three millions of inhabitants, should
have thirty representatives. If any chango of ap?
portionment is to be made, let it be general and
extend to all the States.
Mr. Eldridge, of Wisconsin, suggested that the
reason Ohio ..'as not included was that it did not
have so many blacks.
Mr. Bingham said that was no argument.
Mr. Stevens said as there seemed to be so much
opposition, he would withdraw that part of tho
bill which provided for representation 'rom the
State at largo.
Mr. Bingham insisted that under that circum?
stance the third section was not at all necessary,
as the paople now had the right to olect represen?
Mr. Stevens then withdrew thc whole section
Mr. Brooks, of New York, said he was glad the
bill had aroused some opposition among repub?
licans, for it was evident that they wero fearful
of th? efl'eet out West if they passed such a bill
as this. He referred to the several reconstruc?
tion acts, and contended that their whole object
was to enfranchise tho blacks and disfranchise
tho whi'os of the South. Tho object was to en?
slave eight millions of white people by putting
an inferior race to mle over them. Mr. BrookB
thon procoedod to arguo that the full-blooded
negro could never be the equal of the Anglo-Saxon
race, and that nature nover intended him to bc so.
His very anatomical formation was difieront from
his head to his feet. He had no hair upon bm
head, but wool. It was true no instrument had
vet boen invented to weave thc wool of the negro,
but ho had no doubt that it cauld be done. Tho
negro's skull is different from that of thc white
man, and a difference is noted in his nose, mouth,
legs, feet, and every part of his body. Ho has noth?
ing to denote that he is tho equa'l of the An?lo
Saxon, and it was nover intended by uature that
he should bo railed upon to co-operate in a great i
government, or to bo considered as tho brother of ,
the white man. These remarkB did not apply to
the mulatto, who did evince intelligence when ,
white blood coursed through his veins, but the
Congo negro was never intended as a man and a
brother. Referring to ancient history, Mr. Brooks
mentioned the Arabs, the 'Turks and others, as
nations that bad been prosperous and thriving I?
until they admitted the negro to a share in their
government and eonunencod with the work of
In continuation, Mr. Brooks referred to tuc his?
tory of tho Mexican race, and attributed theil
effeminacy and degradation to the admixture with j
colored racej. This might be tho last time that j
he would address a white audience upon this
tloor, for it seemed to be a fixed fact that negroes J
were to bo brought down from thc g:'l!cricL. and
brought to seats as representatives upou this
floor. But be gavo notice that the white people of
the North would never submit to tho insult, xudif

Mr. Farnsworth, of Illinois, addressed Hie House

Mr. Stevens repiied to Mr. Brooks, and said be?

declared that the Creator made of one blood all
nations of tho earth. The gentleman says he
made th<* : of several bloods. He has gone into a

-PL'HCHASE MONEY FOB ALASKA.
The Washington correspondent of the Baltimore
Suu, writes under date of December 18th :
The President sent to both houses of Congrega
to-day thc message previously called for bv r?solu?
tion in relation t-> order No. 1 of General Hancock,
issued by him upon assuming command of the
Fifth Military District. As tho message was read
in the House, parts of ii were received with loud
shou s of hu^hter from the Republican side of th
House. Especially was this the case in that por?
tion of tho message in which ?illusion was mado
to General Hancock in connection with the name
of General Washington. At tho conclusion of tb
reading a motion to print was referred to the com
mittee on printing. Subsequently, Mr. Eldridg
and other Conservative members essayed to obta
the floor for tho purpose, as il was understood,
offering the thanks of Congress to General Han
cock for his administration of the affairs of tb
Fifth District. It will bc a useless task to off
any such resolution, as it is not to be presum
that a sufficient number cf Republicans would voto
tor it to give it a respectable majority. Tho
could not do so very consistently in view of their
often avowed approval of tbe acts of General Han
cock's predecessor. Somo of them actually fav
tho introduction of the resolution, a9 they aro un
willing to bc placed upon a record of antagonis
to so gallant an officer and soldior as Hancock
proved himself during thc war.
The Senate did not seem to bo well pleased witl
the message, for a motion of Mr. Doolittle's
print tho usual number of copies was objec
ed to, and upon Mr. Doolittle rema:king that he
never before heard ot a refusal to print a Prest
dent's message, Mr. Conklin, of Now York, r
torted that he nover knew of a President before
who would send such a message as this to Con
With ?light modification the supplemental rc
construction bill, introduced by Mr. Stevens yea
tcrday, was passed bv tho Houso of Representa
tives to-day by a stn stay partv vote. Tho bill was
intended ID the first place to repeal that clause of
the original Reconstruction act which required
majority of the registered voters to call a conven
tion. Secondly, thc bill provided that elector
could vote for members pf Congress at tho same
time that they voted for or against a ratification of
a State constitution; and in the third place the bill
made thc apportionment of representation, and
fixed it in every State except Florida, at a repre
?entation which was au increase over the number
illowed by the apportionment of 1861. This in
?reasc was to be secured by providing that some
of tho representatives should be olectod from tho
State at large.
Mr. Stevens explained that this increased ropre
?entation was required by thc freeing of thc slaves
The bill seemed to bc very generally approved bv

there was great objections from all quarters, and
Mr. Bingham stated his objections in such a do
usive way as to induce Mr. Stevens to withdraw
the obnoxious section, and thon tho bill was

lt is clear that there is in the Houso a dead op?
position to any apptopriationfor the ratification of
;he treaty for the purchase of Alaska. But when
t comes to the point, I do not think there will be
i failure to make tho appropriation. Whilo ciem
)ers sneak against the purchase, they seem to
hink that a point of national honor is involved,
low that the territory has beon officially trans
erred to thc United States. They will insist,
?owover, that in all future purchases of territory

Tho following message was sent by the Presi
lcut to Congress 011 Wednesday :
Gentlemen vf Ute Se?ale and vi the U-ius? oj
Representatives: An official copy of the order is
caed by Major General Winfield H. Hancock, com
nander of the Fifth Military District, dated head
joarters in New Oilcans, Louisiana, on tho 29:h
lay of November, has reached nie through the
ogular channels of tho War Departmont, and I
?erewitb communicate it to Congress for auch
Lotion as may seem to bc proper in view of all tho 1
It ..ill be perceived that General Hancock an
louuccs that bo will make the law the rulo of bis
.onduct; that ho will uphold the courts and other
:ivil authorities in the performance of their proper
lutie>; and that he will use bis military power
inly to preserve the peace and enforce the law.
rio declares very explicitly that the sacred right of
.he trial by jury and tho privilege of tho writ of 1
tabeas corpus shall not be crushed out or trodden
mtier foot. He goes further, and in ono covupre
aensivo Bontence asserts that the principles of
American liberty aro still thc inheritance of this
people, and ever should be.
\\ hen a great soldier, with unrestricted power
in his hauds to oppress bis fellow-meu, voluntari
y foregoes the chance of gratifying bis solfisb
imbition und devores himself to thy duty of bulld?
og up tho liberties and strengthening tim laws of
ais country, he presents an example of th ? high
:st public virtue that human rn turo is capable of
practicing. Tho strongest claim of Washington
:o be "first i:i war, first in peace, anu firjt in thc
iiearts of bis countrymen,'' is founded on tho
rreat fact that in ali bis illustrious career he
.crupulously abstained from violating tho legal
md constitutional rights of bis fellow-citizens.
When he surrendered Lin commission to Congress,
the president of that body spoke bis highest
praise in saying that he Dad "always regarded tho
nguin of tho civil authorities through all dangers
ind disasters." Whenever power above thc law
courted hi? acceptance, li?.- calm;.-- pnt the tempta?
tion aside. By such magnanimous acts of for?
bearance h won the universal admiration of man?
kind, and left a name which lias no rival iii the
history of tin, world.
I am far from saying that General Hancock ls
tho only officer of' ibo American army who is in?
fluenced by thc example of Washington. Doubt?
less thousands of them are faithfully dovoted to
tho principles for which the men of tho revolution
laid dowu their lives. But flic distinguished honor
belmifrs to him ot being tho first officer in high
command South of t?.c Potomac, ?ince thc close of
the civil war, who has given utterance to these
noble sentiments iu thc form of a military order.
I respectfully Burrgc-nt to Congress that ?onie

Things in \?"*.v lork,
TUE HOLIDAY SEASON AND ITS EFFECT ON BUSINESS -
IMPORTANT FENIAN MOVEMENTS-THE TENE?
MENT HOT SL CATASTROPHE.
The New York coi respondent of the Philadel?
phia Inquirer writes under dat* of the 17th in?
There is comparatively little buying aa yet for
Christmas or Now Year. The fancy goods stores,
the jewellers and the booksellers are usually very
busy during thc first two weeks in December, but
this season it is unpleasant to see, anti to say, is
an exception to thc general rule. Though money
is "easier"' in Wall-street, it ia far from easy else?
where. Many merchants anti business mon, who
last year at this time were doing well, aro now
either on the suspended list, or are scarcely mak?
ing money enough to pay rent. At the samo timo
there are thousands of working psople out of em?
ployment, with no immediate prospect of robot.
Th?se aro facts which abundantly explain why it
is that the hobday trade is so duJl, and why fancy
artick-3 are less in demand for open stockings than
is usuallv the case tho week before Christmas.
John Mitchel's paper of to-day contains the an?
nouncement that a plan of union has been agrcod
to between tho rival Fenian organizations. One of
the articles provides that the constitution adopted
by tho Brotherhood in Philadelphia in October,
I860, by the representatives of thc undivided or?
ganization, be proclaimed tho supremo law of the
whole national body in America, to bo respected
and obeyed by all accordingly.
It is also agreed that tho "Senate" provided for
in that constitution, be composed of one-half of
members of tho Bobcrts, and one-half of members
,-f the Stevens-Savage factions; also, that tho pres?
idency of tho unitod organization be tendered by
Boberts and Savage to John Mitchell; should he
decline, then another mutually acceptable man to
be chosen in his place.
Provision is likewise made for u full and truth?
ful exhibit of all moneys, property and material of
war now in possession of tho respective organiza?
tions, all of which is to be turned ovor to thc Uni?
ted Brotherhood, which (1 quote) "shall thence?
forward be continued as a body, one and indivisi?
ble, until it sball havo accomplished its mission,
in the restoration of the independent existence of
the Irish nation, and the establishment of a dem?
ocratic ropublic on Irish soil."
This document, which is signed by John Savage.
W. EL Boberts, F. B. Gallagher, John O'Neill anti
John C. O'Brien, is of much mjre importance than
the casual reader not specially interested in Fenian
movements may suspect. It means preparations
for fresh demonstrations of a hostile character
against the peace of tho British bon-as time will
develop-under cover of a domestic political move?
ment, in connection with thc approaching Presi?
dential election. Wait and seo.
The investigation of tho mysterious poisoning
caso in Brooklyn wa? continued to-day. Tho crowd
was as dense as ever. Mis. Emma McIntosh, who
knew Mrs. Fall and Price for two or three years,
testified that sho nover knew that there was any
quarrel between them. Dr. Gardiner testified to
attending Mrs. Fall, at Price's solicitation to pro?
scribe for her for nervous attacks. She was in the
habit of drinking beer. Various other witnesses
were called, but their evidence throw no additional
light on the business. Tho inquest will continuo
through thc remainder ot the week.
Tho bodies of thc unfortunate people who wei o
suffocated in tho Second Avenue tcnomont, yester?
day, were all laid out at the morgue this morning,
and a most pitiful spectacle it ivas. Many of their
relatives were present, exhibiting at times uncon?
trollable grief, breaking outiuto lamentations that
could bc ticard a block off. To-morrow tho fune?
rals will tako placo. Mrs. Bjsanna Murphy, one
of tho women who was reported iujurod yesterday,
died at tlio City Hospital this forenoon. This
makes the fourth in tho Murphy family, and it is
not certain that Patrick, the father, will not also
die of Iiis injuries. Much indignation contin?es
to be expressed at tho owner of thc house for fail?
ing to pr?vido fire escapes, ladders, &c.

to call on Col. Ii. anti furnish him with tho neces?
sary description of laborers, and funds to defray
their expenses from New York.
The New York Times says: "Four years ago,
when, tho war was at its height, and the ex?
penses of tho country wcro enormous, a tre?
mendous effort was mudo in Boston, New York
and other lurg? cities to introduco habits of
economy among thc people, and especially iimoug
tho ladies. lt was up-hill work, und was soon
given up altogether; for though expenses were
great and living dear, money was plenty aud the
opportunities for earning it abundant. Now,
however, a largo proportion of tho people ?ire
learning habits of economy without tho efforts of so?
cieties, leagues, or popular mcotings. Tho hard?
ness of tho timos, tho dullnoss of business, tho
scarcity of employment, and tho difficulty of
making inonoy, are giving lessons of. ccouomy in
quarters where heretofore they have never boon
learned, and are giving harder lessons ?till to
many who have always boon compelled to practico
it. Tho severity of the present Winter is felt with
iiuconuuou force and to an uncommon extort by
thousonds who are villiug to work. Lei those
who have plenty refrain from waste, and let them

of the mother and that of tho child. "Save Ute
mother," said the Emperor, "il is her right. Pro?
ceed just as you woultl do in the caso of a citizen's
wile in tho ituc St. Denis." The Emperor added
that the answer produced an electric effect ou Du?

ter of au hour tho King ol nome was beru. IL is
