A desperate effort was made here
last night by the radicals to create an
impression that the President had
made an outrageous speech. De?
spatches were sent all over the coun?
try to this effect, for the purpose of
prejudicing the minds of the party
leaders in advance against it. Three
or four despatches were sent, to Mr.
Seward, stating that the speech of
Mr. Johnson wa* r. frightful one, and
a speech that he could not endorse,
also begging him not to speak at the
Cooper Institute meeting if he could
avoid it, but if be did speak to hm
careful how he committed himself to
thc President. Similar despatches
were also sent to Mr. Raymond aad
other speakers. The game of the
radicals was a bold one, and shows
the desperation to which they are
driven when they are compelled to
resort to that dodge to bolster them?
selves up.-Cor. Neic York Herald.
Yesterday tbe President threw the
order of the Lieutenant-General back
in his face. To-day he has thrown a
veto in the face of Congress, winch
not only refers to the freedmen's bill,
but covers the whole subject of re?
construction. This action is con- ?
sidered a complete withdrawal from
the great party which elected him,
and a union with conservative Cop?
perheads and rebels. These now
have the only claim to the President.
The loyal men of the country, who,
in the field and at home, have sup?
ported the war, are to-night without
a representative at the White House.
Such is the feeling in Union circles
here.-Cor. Cincinnati Gazette.
General Howard visited President
Johnson yesterday, and had a long
interview in reference to his Freed?
men's Bureau. He felt that it was
due to the President, the interests of
the freedmen, and himself, that he
should be made acquainted with the
President's wishes and purposes, since
the President had expressed himself
so entirely opposed to the whole
scope and spirit of that institution.
Mr. Johnson informed the General
that he had in contenvplation the
issuing of a proclamation declaring
the rebellion at an end; and from his
interpretation of the law, the Freed?
men's Bureau would continue its
functions for a year from tho date of
said proclamation, in spite of him.
He intimated no desire for General
Howard'6 withdrawal from the chief
direction of its affairs, although
making no effort to conceal the same
hostility to protecting the freedmen ?
that he has frequently exhibited of j
late.-Correspondence of Tribune.
It is stated that the Ways and
Means Committee are favorably con?
sidering the proposition to tax all
tobacco in the leaf, instead, as now,
upon the manufactured article. It is
thought this mode of taxation will
prevent many and considerable frauds
upon the revenue.
The rupture between tho President
and Congress is complete, and, on
the part of the latter, much animosi?
ty is manifested. What thejr can do
for the recovery of their lost two- i
thirds power in the Senate is to be
seen. The breach may widen with
every veto and every other executive
act, and a few more of the Republi?
can Senators may pass over to the
support of the President, at least
upon vital questions. A meeting of
Republican members will take placo,
at which the present alarming crisis
will be considered.
The President will have occasion
to veto the civil rights bill, and the
District negro suffrage bill, within a
week. There is no doubt that he is
quite ready for it. Thc Senate might j
modify the suffrage bill, but it is not j
now probable that either party de- j
shes this. The radical majority urge I
an unequalified actor none; and the
conservatives, a?'ting in conformity
with the precede it of their friends in
the House, would prefer that the bill
should go to the President in a form
that will insure a veto.
Mr. Sherman endeavored, in the
Senate to-day, to prevent the conside?
ration of the concurrent resolution
from the Committee on Reconstruc?
tion, declaring that the eleven States
lately iu rebellion shall not be repre?
sented in either House until Con?
gress should declare that they are en?
titled to be represented, on account
of the present excited state of the
publie mind and of the Senate itself,
after the events of yesterday, and of
the last few days. The House had
passed the resolutions thc day after
the veto, and in a state of irritation.
Besides, the resolution would amount
to nothing. Tt was nothiog more
than a public declaration of a politi?
cal opinion cu the part of Congress.
It has not the form, effect, or sanc?
tion of law, and would not go before
che President for his assent. He
thought, in fact, that the discussion
of the subject here, at this moment,
would greatly exasperate the present
feelings, already too much excited.
But, however, this forbearance was
not approved by the majority, and
the resolution was taken up by a vote
of 20 to 19-which will probably be
the vote by which it will pass the
In the Congressional proceedings
of Friday we find tho following:
Mr. Washburne, the contestant,
was then accorded permission to
speak for one hour. In the course of
his remarks he charged Mr. Voorhees
with having been involved in the
purchase of fire-arms during the war.
Mr. Voorhees denounced the state?
ment as false, and in turn addressed
thc House, charging the committee
with having at first decided, with but
one dissenting vote, that he was en?
titled to his seat, but that it conclud?
ed to reverse its action three days
Mr. Dawes then closed the debate,
aud on putting the majority report
to a vote the House decided, by yeas
87, nays 36, that Mr. Washburne was
duly elected, and that Mr. Voorhees
was not entitled to the seat he occu?
lu the Michigan contested election
case, the radical sitting member was
diesen by votes cast out of the State,
iu direct violation of the Constitution
and the Supreme Court of the State
-all the Judges, Republicans, but
one, declared that those votes were
null and void. Yet tho sitting mem?
ber is retained.

Valuable and Extensive Water Power
in the City of Columbia for Sale.
Ordered by Vie Legislature of South Caro?
11HE undersigned Commissioners, ap
. pointed by thc General Assembly of
South Carolina, at its late session, Viii
receive bids for tho valuable WATER
POWER known as the COLUMBIA CANAL,
until the first day of April next.
The Canal ia eight thousand six hundred
and fifty-four yards long, and the average
fall for the first three miles is fourteen feet,
commencing at ten feet at Upper street, in
Columbia, and attainiug nineteen feet one
ip ?h at Bridge street; thc remaining two
miles, from Bridge street to its mouth,
commences at nineteen feet ten inches, and
?ttaius a fall of twenty-five feet. Fine
budding sites exist between tho canal and
river, giving completo protection to build?
ings and machinery from freshets. The
State, through the undersigned, will con?
vey tho canal and all its appurtenances,
together with the right of way for sixty
feet on each side of the centre of the canal
to the purchaser. Compensation to tho
adjacent land owners for the right of way,
to bo made by the purchaser, on tho same
just and equitable terms that the right of
way was conveyed to tho Greenville and
Columbia Railroad Company, by Act of
loth December, 18-15.
This power has boen accurately surveyed
by Prof. Jolo LeConte, of the South Caro?
lina University; his report, together with
thc Act of the General Assembly and this
advertisement, has been printed, and may
be obtained by addressing Jas. G. Gibbes,
Esq., Mayor Of Columbia.
Prof. LeConte estimates that by doubling
the original capacity of the canal, as re?
quired by the Act, that the power secured
to Bridgo ?treet will bo 355 horse-power,
the avtrage head being fourteen feet; and
from Lrirtsre street to its mouth 532 horse?
power, with an average head of twenty-one
feet, and a current of one foot per second.
With a current of two feet per second, the
powers would be 710 and 1,004 horsepower;
and if the machinery is not run at night,
the power may bo doubled by accumulat?
ing water in reservoirs.
"As tho supply of water,'7 nays Prof.
LeConte, "which may be turned from the
river into the canal at its head, is almost
unlimited, the canal can be enlarged to an
extent commensurate with tho demand for
water power. II desired, it may be made
to supply water to tho extent of 5,000horse?
power or more. In fact, by very simple
arrangements, one-third or one-half, or
even more, of the whole water in Broad
Ri^er, might be turned into such an en?
This water power is literally within the
city of Columbia. The city is now supplied
by railroads penetrating nearly every Dis?
trict in the State, furnishing the produc?
tions of cotton, rice, wheat, beef and pro?
visions, w'.th little oxpense at this important
Tho city of Columbia is supplied with gas
and good* water, tho climate is salubrious
and liealthy, being above the miasmatic
region, and invites, for pleasant settlement
and society, merchants, artisans, mecha?
nics, manufacturers and persons of for?
tune and leisure.
The property will be sold on the following
conditions, to wit: 1st. The purchaser
shall, within two years from tho date of
conveyance, completo tho widening and
deepening of said canal to at least twice it?
origininal capacity. (Its original capacity
was fifteen feet wide at top, eight feet at
bottom and four feet in denth; to doublo
it according to Prof. LeCoute's report, it
will require the remov..l of 36,107 cubic
yards of earth, and 3,200 cubic yards of
stone to Bridge street, and from Bridge
street to its mouth 22,170 cubic yards of
earth-no stone to be removed. ) That tho
same shall always be kept open for boating
purposes, free of charges, to where it is
now used. (This will not interfere at all
with the water power for driving machine?
ry, as boats only descend as far as the first
lock, near Upper street.)
That the water shall not become stag?
nant, and that it shall not be used for other
than hydraulic purposes.
That one-third ot tho sum bid shall be
paid within thirty days after notice of ac?
ceptance of bid; one-third at the expiration
of six months therefrom, and tho remain?
ing third at tho expiration of twelve
months. Titles delivered on payment of
first instalment, and that the title herein
proposed to be conveyed shall revert to the
State, on default being made of any of the
foregoing conditions, including payment
of all thc purchase money.
This water power with its location, in tho
judgment of tho Commissioners, is un?
equaled by any in tho State of South Caro?
lina, and not " surpassed by any in the
Parties sending bids will please furnish
tho Commissioners with references as to
the ability promptly to mako good thc
