WABHINOTON, January 15.-In the House,
to-day. Mr. Howard presented the cre?
dentials of the Representatives elect from
tho ?Sta to of Arkansas, which, on mo?
tion, were referred to the Committee on
Reconb I ruction.
A proposition was mad.? to permit tho
negroes in the District of Columbia Jto
decide by ballot whother tho whito mau m
that District should be entitled to vote.
It received only twelve votes iu its favor.
Mr. Stevens offered a resolution instruct?
ing the Committee on the Judiciary to con?
sider and report upon the expediency of so
amending the Act of 1863, in relation to
the test oath, as to permit lawyers to
practice their profession on an equal foot?
ing with other professions, without taking
said oath. The resolution was adopted.
The House then resumed tho considera?
tion of the biU in reference to granting
the right of suffrage to tho negroes in the
District of Columbia.
In the Senate, Mr. Howard offered a
joint resolution, declaring that, whereas it
appears by.the report of the Secretary of
War that Jefferson Davis and Clement C.
Clay are held in confinement as having
been concerned in thc assassination of
Abraham Lincoln, and also for the murder
of Federal soldiers held as prisoners of
war, the committee to whom said report
was referred be instructed to recommend
that they bo immediately tried by military
commission. The resolution was objecte i

SPECTACLES FOB HOBSES.-The
United States Gazette relates the fol?
lowing incident: A gentleman had an
old and valued horse whose sight was
defective. For some time past the
quadruped evinced a tendency to
stumble, and to strain his sight at
objects close to him, in a manner
that set the kind hearted owner to
devising a remedy. The gentleman
judged that with a pair of spectacles
the horse would do as well as when
in his prime. An optician ground to
order a pair of pebble glasses, about
the size of the object glasses of a
large lorgnette. They were fixed in
a frame over the horse's eyes. That
animal is now a horse in spectacles,
and not an elderly gentleman ever
yet showed a greater appprcciatiou
of the convenience. When in the
stable the spectacles are removed.
A COTTON-PICKING MACHINS.-Un?
der free labor new and better methods
for cultivating and investing staple
products of the South are likely to
be invented. The West Tennessee
Whig already announces the inven?
tion of an implement, or machine,
which, if it is found of practical use,
will be worth nearly as much to the
cotton States as Whitney's cotton"
gin. It is 'a machino for picking
cotton, and from its workings it is
stated the instrument promises to be
a perfect success. The hope was to
have the machinery ready by the last
of cotton-pioking this year, and to
have it in perfect order by the time
the next crop invites picking. This
has heretofore been considered im?

Prospects in Texas.
From the Houston (Texas) Tele?
graph we clip the following statement
of the agricultural prospects in that
We hear of a great many contracts
having been made for the next year.
In fact, we believe that more than
half the agricultural freedmen in this
lower country have engaged their
homes and will be ready to go to
work after the holidays. Contracts
are various. Some are for a specific
monthly pay, also clothing, food,
doctor's bills, an acre of land, and
Saturday afternoons; others tor spe?
cific monthly wages, without anything
but board ; others for a share of the
crop, and others still on wages now,
and so much a hundred for cotton
picking. Some pay monthly; others
quarterly; others the first quarter's
wages at the end of six mouths, and
balance at the end of the year. Some
furnish clothing and medical attend?
ance, and charge it against wages.
In fact, no fixed rule has been made,
and the matter, ns it should be, is left
as much as possible to the iaw of
supply and demand.
Those who are undertaking the
I plantations are mostly their owners,
though we hear of large farms being
rented both by Northern and South?
ern men. One Northern man has
taken a place of 1,000 acres, and em?
ployed 140 hands to work it. A friend
of ours, who has planted all bis life
nearly, has taken three plantations,
and contracted with all the labor he
wants for them.
These encouraging facts show that
the agriculture of the country is not
to be given up without an effort; nay,
more, that the experiment of work?
ing freed negroes on plantations is to
be tried in all ways. From the differ
entmethodsof employment, it is to be
hoped and believed that the best will
be discovered. To this end, we shall
be glad to receive as frequent reports
as possible from the planters in all
parts of the country. Wo shall bo
glad to know how the negroes are
working, how they settle difficulties,
j what remedies are employed for mis
i behavior, and what thc promise is of
The future is anything but promis?
ing, save in the fact that our people
do not despair. So long as they keep
up good courage, and lay hold of thc
difficulties with spirit, there is at least
all the hope possible in the circum?
stances. That so many are confident,
is (tonged sign. -
We are glad to soe capital from

A TVew Mode of Dealing with Fire?-.
"Extincteur" in England.
We are more or less familiar with
the history of the improvements made
in the direction of extinguishing fires.
The old hand-bucket was superceded
by the hand-engine, and this, though
made very effective by the thorough
organization of the workers, ha3 in
turn been forced to yield to the supe?
rior qualities of the steam fire engine,
whoso usefulness has recently been
much increased by the fire alarm tele?
graph, which enables the force to
concentrate on a conflagration in a
j space of time surprisingly brief,
i All these appliances seem now
i about to be thrown into the lumber
! closet, by one of those contrivances
whose very simplicity endorses it as
that aim of perfection so nearly allied
in appearance to the simplicity of
ignorance, yet so widely different in
its results. It is not improbable even
that the long array of ladders, and
fire escapes, and ropes and axes and
hooks, in use in some places more
plentifully than with us, will ulti?
mately be thrown aside as useless,
thrown out by the invention recently
This is nothing more than the dis?
covery of the fact that water charged
with ten times its weight of carbonic
acid is a complete extinguisher of fire.
The compound is cheaply made, and
used with facility, being put into a
sm;di reservoir, which a man carries
easily on his back to any place re?
quired, without more hindrance to
active exertion than that caused by
carrying an ordinary knapsack. Ar?
rived at the place of action, all the
fireman has to do is to turn a cock,
and direct the jet by means of his
flexible tnbe and mouth-piece upon
the fire, the machinery inside giving
the power of a force-pump capable of
throwing the jet forty feet high. Thc
material is as harmless to health, life
or property as any ordinary seidlitz
powder, is ready for instant use, and
the longer it has been stored iu the
vessel the more effective it is in action.
The idea is believed to have origi?
nated with a Mr. Amsden, of Liver?
pool, Englaud, who has also invented
a machine for using it effectually, and
instituted numerous experiments with
them ir the presence of the town
authorities of Liverpool, London and
other places. We clip the following
account of one of these trials from
the London Morning AdvertLw:
A square 'rame-work of rough tim?
ber boards, equal in size to an ordi?
nary cottage, open at the top, and
with a doorway also open at one end,
was plentifully stored with staves of
tar barrels, slabs o? old dry timber,
loose straw and hay, and over all tar.
turpentine and petroleum ( ivhich
water does not touch at ah when in
flame) were plentifully poured. This
mass of easy ignitable and combusti?
ble material was set fire to, and within
one minute the flame went high into
the air, and the heat was so intense
that the numerous company ot gen?
tlemen who had assembled to witness
the experiment, hastily retreated to
every available corner to prevent their
faces from being blistered by it.
Four of the extincteurs were then
set to work, and it seemed for about
a minute and a half as though the
experiment would be a failure, and
almost immediately afterward the
flumes subsided, and within five mi?
nutes from the time the fire was
kindled, it wai completely extin?
guished by only four of these engines,
and had the bearers been able to ap?
proach it nearer in a shorter time
than they were able, from the extreme
heat and intensity of the conflagra?
tion, there can be little doubt that it
would have been subdued in less time.
But it is obvious that in ordinary
cases it would not be necessary in
dwelling houses, chambers, ware?
houses, or docks, to have recourse
even to such means, and that at the
first alarm of fire one of these port?
able engines, carried to the spot,
would extinguish it almost instanta
The English papers speak of the
invention os meeting with great favor,
the patentee being in receipt of nu
merous orders. The Oldham Chroni
c?e says :
"We understand that several emi
nent shipping houses have ordered c
supply of these portable engines fo:
their vessels. The engines range ir
price from ?2 12s. 6d. to ?4 10s., in
creasing in price 10s., according t<
size and capacity; and the cost of tin
"charges" increase at the. rate of ls
for each addition to the size of tin
engine. It is very elegant in shape
and might easily be manufactured ii
styles that would adapt it us an orna
ment, either to the dining or drawin?
room, and thus confer on every pri
vate family of moderate means th
inestimable blessing of security fror
one of the greatest calamities tha
can befall them, a disastrous an
fatal fire. "
