In the Senate prolonged personal explana- *

such dispatch was seat. It was also stated
hat the dispatch WUH inspired by Seward and

Tho name of Lee elicited applause from the
white spectators, which was checked by the

THE UKITED STATES AT THE PARIS EXHTBI
riON.- The Secretary of State has just received
.Tom Commissioner Beckwith a table which
?aa been carefully calculated and verified from
)fticial data, at Paris, and which shows that,
witta all the drawbacks and obstacles which the
United States representation labored under,
ihey are number one in grand prizes, and ex?
ceeded every nation except France in the gen
3ral proportions of awards to exhibitors, and
in the proportion of gold and silver medals
ind "honorable mention." Austria, Prussia
md North Germany slightly exceed us in their
proportion of bronze medals to their numbers
it exhibitors. lu the general average we are
just double the rate of Great Britain and her
colonies. Taking all things into consideration,
rbis is considered, perhaps, the most marvel?
lous triumph at a competitive trial of tho ie
511 Its of the inventive and industrial energies
)f the American people; yet we were far from
jeing fully and fairly represented. Taking
;hese as a criterion, however, the natioual
irido may well bo flattered by tho ovidence of
)ur capacity to compete with the world.
POWDERED HAIR RETURNING.-A late parish
'ashion letter contains the following :
I am assured on good authority that tho
ashion of dresses a panier is to bring back
mee more that of hair powder-tho real pow
ler of Louis XV.'s days. I hope I am not
?uilty ot gossip, but it is whispered that a cer?
tain gre it lady's hair is beginning to show the
nevitable thin streakes of gray, and that some
if the young fair beauties who surround her
aave hit upon the device of powder. Tho first
iialf of tho season at the Tuilorics is announc?
ed for thc 221 instant, and there is a good deal
if curiosity evinced about powdered heads on
:he occasion. I suppose there are more bald
aeadcd and gray-haired men at these Tuileries
?atheiings tha:i at any other receptions in
I'aris. There are quite enough white locks to
jalisfy the most ardent admirers of these boa -
ry signs of age ; it would, therefore, be a pity
f tho many young and beautiful women who
compose and surround the court circlo use
irtificial mc.ms to match the sterner sex. The
jold and ebo.i locks which poets 6ing about are
juroly far moro to be admired thau this pow?
ter, which renders a bloni.e paler still, and
ind most certainly darkens a brune.
The probability of a continuous session of
Congress honce tb the 4th of March, 1869, is
3cgiuuing to bc discussed among the members.
S'early all the expressions point to a recess in
lune for u couple cf months, a reassembling
in September, if events require it, and then a
recess until December. The present session
cannot possibly complete its financial work
before tho last of June or the early portion of
July, and thero will probably be no adjourn?
ments for the National Conventions of either
CONVENTION HELD BY AUTHORITY OF THE
RECONSTRUCTION LAWS OF CONGRESS,
TO FRAME A STATE CONSTITUTION
FOR SOUTH CAROLINA,
Tho business of the convention yesterday
may be summed np in a single paragraph
much talk and little work. The great fight ol
the session was over a proposition to divide
the judicial district ot Charleston into three
election districts; but tho country rallied in
strong force, and the measure was defeated.
Charleston is entitled to two senators, but the
"county of Edieto," which some ambitious
member looking to future honors ptopoBed,
was lei t ont in the cold.
In the early part of tho day C. P. Leslie
made a speech in reply to the attack upon him
in the Mercury of yesterday; stated that the
charges made were without foundation, and
.-.egretted that, because he had endeavored to
perform his duty to the people of Barnwell and
tho State, that journal had seen .fit to indulge
ixi a burlesque which was as cruel as it
vas undeserved. His remarks being on a
question of privilege, no action was taken
tu-reon, aud the body proceeded to its usual
Last evening a caucus was held, it ie under?
stood, for the purpose of completing nomina?
tions; but with what result, we are not in?
formed. Thc colored delegates are said to be
exceedingly annoyed at the division of spoils,
and a new "slate" is being prepared whereon
will bo written tho names of the "lo-bc-distin
guished," who expect to lill the proud placos
of the Stile.
F. L. Cardoza, Rev. li. H. Cain, and ono or
two other colored mon have gone to Washing?
ton as a sort of self-constituted committeo on
a prospecting tour. First, their object is to
find out whether a colored man, if elected to
Congress, will bc "welcomed with hospitable
hands," &c.; secondly, why Speaker Collas
treated such a proposition, made by letter
some time ago, with contemptuous silence;
thirdly, whether tho convention is sufficiently
Radical to bo a success in tho oyo ol tho boss
loconstructionists cf Washington; and finally,
whether any arrangement can bo made to
carry out a land scheme, by which tho freedmen
may enjoy their now petted day-dream as a
bona fide reality.
The general impression is that thc mission
will provo a failure, and that tho colored peo?
ple of the State will be most thoroughly dis?
gusted by tho so-called friendly promises of
tho Washington politicians.
The probabilities grow stronger every day
that the convention will not bo able to Onisb
its duties before tho 11th of March. Much
work remains to be done. Many heavy verbal
contests are "cooking up" on vexed quostiona
yet to bD considered, and at the present rate
of progress, this limit to the session is not an
Meanwhile, funny thiuRS continue to bo
?aid and done on thc floor, which moko por- ;
lions of the proceedings as good as a comedy,
for instance, yesterday, ono of the delegates (
?ccused another of unpremeditated smartness, ?
ind to damago him with u regular "sockdolo- I
jet" thatshould quench and make him forever ;
iftcr hold his peace, said that he had "cut his ]
jyo teeth befuro ho had done nussing." The <
jame delegate handled tho Charleston mern- ?
jere without gloves for trying to do some?
thing which wo did not clearly understand, and
ie indignantly declared that they were prcpar- }
3d to "sell their birthright for a mesa of part- :
ridges." These sallies of rough humour novor ?

THINGS IN WASHINGTON.
COLORED SOLDIERS AND AFRICAN COLONIZATION
NEW SCHEME OF MR. PHELPS, MARYLAND -DEM?
OCRATIC EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE MEETING-ALA?
BAMA QUESTION AND PENDING BILLS.
Tho Washington correspondent of thc Balti?
more 8un writes under date of February 18 :
A bill is to bo introduced m thu Houso in a ,
few naya by Colonel Phelps, of Maryland, pro?
viding for the speedy disbandment of all tho
colored regiments now in service, and for rc- 1
organizing the same number upon terms which i
will secure their ultimate colonization in Libe?
ria. More efficient provision is to bo mado for
their instruction while in the service, and a
sufficient amount of their monthly pay is to bc
reserved to secure both tlioir fulfilment of the
contract and a comfortable outfit for them?
selves and families upon their landing in Libe- !
ria. As thoro is no expenditure ol' money from i
the treasury required by this ulan further ,
than that already incurred, the idea ?B consid?
ered a feasible one.
It is thought by those acquainted with thc
condition of Africa that a straggle is impend?
ing betwoen the antagonistic types of African ?
civilization and religion, represented on tho
one hand by the Christian und republican cum
monwealth'of Liberia, ?ind ou tho other by tho
despotic Mohammedan powers of tho inte
rior. Educated and disci "lined velerauu from
our army would, in view of such a conflict,
prove a valuable reinforcement to tho infant
republic, and might ultimately bear tho coot ,
of an expedition which, in thc moment of
danger to the oxisloncc of tho American colony
on the coast of Africa, our government would
probably feel bound to send to its rescue hom 1
lt is confidently asserted that no difficulty
will be i'ouud in recruiting the colored regi?
ments upon tue terms proposed, or even a
much greater number if required. The Ameri?
can Colonization Society, under tho presidency
of John H. li. Latrobe, of Baltimoro, has beoii
compelled sinco thc war to buy tho large ship
"Golconda," which has already colonized
fifteen hundred colored emigrants, and the
society has now over two thousand applications
for passage. This revival of tho colonization
spirit among the blacks has tauon place. Spon?
taneously, aud without special effort en tiio
part of the society, and it is behoved thal a
system of recruiting, such as proposed in
Colonel Phelps' bill, would effect even moro
nurprising results. The plan of Colonel Phelps
has been submitted to the President, aud
meets with the latter's approval.
From present iudicatious tho meeting of tho
Democratic National Executive Committee in
.his city, on thc 22d instant, will be quito large?
ly attended by active and influential members
of the party, from thc West and North, ?.hose
main object is to secure the meeting of tLc
proposed Democrati. Convention in the city of
their choice. A largo number of those "out?
siders" arrived hero to-night from Hie West,
and some came also from Philadelphia and
New York. A vigorous effort will bo made to
secure tho meeting of tho convention in Cin?
cinnati, but New Yorkers in sufficient strength
aro oxpeclod her" to make a strain; struggle to
have tho meeting in New York citv.
At tho scssiOR of the Reconstruction Com?
mittee to-day, thc Democratic members there?
of, Messrs. Brooks a:>.d Beek, voted together
with Stevens, Boutweil, &c, on thc proposition
lo adopt either the Bingham or Sherman bii's
for admitting Alabama. The?c billa were
voted upon separately, thc Democrats and ex?
treme Radicals, Stevens, Boutweil, etc., voting
against the plan of the former, opposing tho
project in toto, the latter because thev aro not
willing to make a specialty of Alabama, but
desire all the Southern States to be governed
by exactly the same laws. The Alabama bills
Geneial Grant had an interview with Mr.
Stanton to-day ot about an hour, ?nd was af?

sultation with members.
In the House to-day Mr. Butler introduced a
bill to amend the several acts establishing the I
national banka, which was referred. It pro?
vides that every stockholder may vote, accord?
ing to tho number of shares he holds, in- the
following .oroportion : for one share one vote,
and for every two additional shares one vote
more; but no stockholder shall have more than
twenty votes. Absent stockholders may vote
by proxy, but no salaried officer of tho bank
shall vote as proxy. No officer shall, as proxy,
cast moro than ten votes; and no person, as
proxy, cast more than fifty votes. Each bank
shall at least onco in every six months prepare
a 1 st of its stockholders, with the amount of
stock held by each, and shall provide a book
in which all proxies filed shall be forthwith en?
tered, with the date of execution, acknowledg?
ment, and filing of the some; and the names of
the stockholders and proxy or attorney named
therein, and such list-book and proxies filed,
shall nt all times be open to the inspection ot
every stockholder. A bank [failing to comply
with these provisions shall, for each offenco,
forfeit a sum not exceeding five thousand dol?

Tho amount of gold in the vaults of the
Treasury at tho beginning of business this

is payable iu gold certificates $28,700. leaving a
balance of $75,300,000 in gold coin belonging to

Tho Washington correspondent of the New
York Times says :
The Senate will make the brevet nomination
of General Sherman an occasion for action
which shall result in virtually ab ilishing the
whole brevet system. It grow up during (ho
war, when there was a manifest necessity for
it; but it has been so much abused that its
abolition now would really contribute to thc
efficiency ot the service. All other considera?
tions aside, there is no man in the army whose
advancement would be more readily endorsed
than that of General Sherman. It is proper to
add hero that General Grant has expressed no
opposition to General Sherman coming hore
to assume his new command, having i crfect
confidence in tho latter's soldierly integrity,
and believing that under no circumstances
could he bo induced to involve himself m any
