MASSAGE OF SHERMAN'S BILL.
WASHINGTON, February 21.-Tho.
tenure of office bill was hurried to
tV^Presideut, last night, to prov eut
lu the House, Sher roan's bill came
up. Wilson's amendment was adopt?
ed-t>? to GO. It passed, "and that
persons excluded from office ! y the
proposed constitutional amendment
bc excluded from voting for mem?
bers, or being members of conven?
tions to form State constitutions."
Shelluborger odored an amendment,
declaring, "until the rebellious
States ave admitted to representation,
any civil government shall be deemed j
provisional, subject to thc authority
of the Uuited States, to be abolished,
modified or superceded at any time,
and all elections under civil govern?
ment to l)e conducted by persons de?
scribed in the fifth section; and per?
sons qualified to hold office under pro?
visional government ineligible under
the provisions of thc third section of
tho constitutional amendment of last
session." Adopted-yeas, 98; nays,
70. A resolution to concur with the
amendments then passed-125 to
116-Hawkins, of Tennessee, and
Hubbell, of Ohio, being the only
Republicans voting nay.
lt is conceded that the Senate will
pass the bill, with the House amend?
ments. The increased stringency de?
veloped by the Wilson and Shella
borger amendments is attributed to
Stevens' strategy. It. is generally
acceded that the President will waive
the advantages of time, and veto the
bill in time tor Congress to act.
The army appropriation bill was
taken up and adopted, including the
section in relation to a general of the
army, which contains, in addition to
the points telegraphed hist night,
that orders and instructions relating
to militaiy operations, issued by the
President or Secretary of War, shall
be issued through a general of the
Tho Senate was engaged on District
bills until a message was received
from the House announcing he pass?
age of Sherman's bill, with amend?
ments. . ,
Williams moved that the Senate
concur. Several senators regretted
that a disfranchising clause was in?
serted by the House, but would vote
to concur notwithstanding.
Johnson said that if he had his
wish, ho would immediately receive
the Southern representatives, but
wouldyield to the majority; he would
vote for the bill because he saw in it
a mode of rescuing the country from
the perils that now threaten it.
WASHINGTON, February 20.-Tho
President s answer to the Senatorial
questions regarding violations of the
civil rights bill, states that neither of
the Secretaries of State, War and
the Navy, nor tho Postmaster-Gene?
ral, have reported any. Several were
under consideration, which had been
refused at the Attorney-General's of?
fice. Secretary Stanton had reported
several cases to Congress. Cowan,
in a speech, defended the President
and the South, and asked the Senate
why they did not give Stanton assist?
ance to redress the reported out
Kvges, instead of pouring them into
te public ear. Respect for the fair
__ime of the country required this,
instead of using them os a means for
maligning tho. President. Sherman,
?urging his bill, said we give the ne
?J^^ballot, school, protection anil
iawT^.ut the nation would never con?
sent to put white men under his do?
mination. He de.signat.cd Stevens
and Elliot's plans as horribly defect?
It appears, from a communication
of the President to tin; Senate, that
the gross proceeds of cotton seized
is ?25,500,000; sale of miscellaneous
property, $1,800,000; rents of aban?
doned property, nearly $500,000; and
other receipts ?2,300,000; total, $35,
000,000; net profits to United States,
John Surratt was brought on shore
to-day. On landing, the marshal
said: "Is your name -John Surratt?"
He replied: "It is, sir." Tho marshal
then served his warrant, and took
possession of the prisoner. His case
and custody are entirely under civil
authorities. Ex-Governor Thomas
H. Ford, of Ohio, and Cul. Hincklo
will defend Surratt.

Ax ART ILLUSTRATION. - The Hon.

following tts an illustration of what
condition thc Southern States would
be after they shall have passed
through the "course of sprouts"
prepared for them by the radical
There was a man once came to my
neighborhood and preached what he
called the doctrine of restoration in
reference to a higher and a better
world. He said that all sinners
would finally be restored to walk the
streets of thc New Jerusalem; but he
said they would first have to go to
the place of perdition, the pit that
burns with fire and brimstone, and
stay there until they had expiated all
their sins. An old man who was :
present and heard him, one who was
noted more for his straightforward
and blunt language than for his piety,
got up and said: "Why, brother,
after I have been in that sulphur and
fire burning long enough to have my
sins burned ont of me, don't you
think I would be a d-d pretty singe
cat to go to Heaven?" [Great
i laughter. J And that is what the
I gentleman is pleased to call a perfec?
tion of the Republic.
HARPER'S FERRY.-During the pe?
riod of General Washington's incum?
bency of the Presidency, various
tracts of land at Harper's Ferry wer'?
ceded to him and his successors, in
trust for the United States, for the
purpose of erecting buildings for the
manufacture of arms, etc. The Go?
vernment armory and work-shops
remained at that point up to the time
of the breaking out of the war in
1861. Thc War Department having
determined against re-locating the
Government armory there, applica?
tion has been made, for a sale or con- j
voyance of the land to parties who
are desirous of putting up manufae- I
RECONSTUCTTNG POR ETERNITY.
"Mack," the Washington correspond?
ent of the Cincinnati Commercial, gets
off tin; following: Mr. Morehead, of
Pittsburg, closed a eulogy on his late
colleague, Phillip Johnson, with the
following very touching piece of rhe?
toric: "How important that we, while ?
using our best energies to reconstruct
tho Government for time, should not
fail to use proper exertions for recon?
struction personally for eternity." t
am afraid it" Congressmen don't make
better progress with eternal than
they have with temporal reconstruc?
tion, they will all go to the devil by
Mons. Jean BaptisteLassue, an in
genius Frenchman, of Now York,
claims to have invented an serial ship,
capable of being steered and man?
aged in tho air, and of making the
trip across the Atlantic in three days
and a half. His ship is a longitudinal
cylinder, representing about 1,000
feet in length and 30? in diameter.
Through this cylinder, at its centre,
passes a tunnel, and through this
tunnel arc steps, and men tread them
to propel the ship. Attached to tho
outer surface of thc cylinder is a thin
screw or spiral flange, which, nuger
like, is to bore thc passage of tho
ship through the air.
ANOTHER VICTIM TO FEDERAL IN?
JUSTICE.-Dr. James Hunter, of
Fairfax County, died on the 9th inst.,
aged sixty-two years. Dr. Hunter
was arrested by tho Federals on the
charge of harboring Coi. Mosby
which was not true-sent to the slave
pen in Alexandria, and subsequently
to Fort Warren. It was during this
imprisonment that-his health was un?
dermined. Mosby once stopped at
the well of Dr. Hunter, washed his
hands, and had a napkin sent out to
wipe them. This was the offence
that merited an imprisonment which
slowly but surely worked death.
Soi.DUCKS' GRAVES.- -The Emperor
' of Franco has acTflt?sse .1 tho foll ow
! ing to Viscount Hood:
"SIK: I learn with regret hy your
j letter that the tombs ol" the English
officers killed at the battle of Ton
I louse are in a state of dilapidation.
"Soldiers who fall upon a foreign
soil are the property of that country,
and it is the duty of all to honor
j their memory.
"I take upon myself the repara?
tion of these tombs at my own ex?

There is a sentiment in this which
shows how ineffably inferior this ef?
fete European despotism is to our
own enlightened republicanism. Our
"gallant Phil. Sheridan," in forbid?
ding a civil escort to the remains of
Gen. Johnston, and the various or?
ders issued to prevent monuments to
or decorations of the graves of Con?
federate dead, demonstrate our enor?
mous superiority in humanity and a
chivalrous regard for a gallant foe.

A female fiend by the name of
J Crawford, living in New Albany, beat
j a little girl most unmercifully, and
then burned her badly with a red-hot
iron. The child is slowly recovering.
She was most shockingly and inhu?
manly punished, as she alleges, by
this woman Crawford. Both her
arms were broken, and holes burned
in her abdomen by a hot poker,
thrust against lier. A terrible gash
was rut upon Hie side of lier head,
her feet wen' blistered, and a deep
gash was cut in her lips, lt is a mat?
ter of general surprise that the 'nail
bond of thi' woman was fixed at the
low -uni of $250.

A SAD BLOW. -A party of negroes,
whilst digging on a plantation near
I Vicksburg, struck an Old bomb-shell.
A dismission arose as to whether thc
powder was still good. "Tell you it
I is," said one. "Tell you it aint,"
said another. "I'm blowed if it is,"
said a third, as he put it into the fire
' by way of test. A terrific explosion
took place, and No. :? was "blow'd if
I it wasn't." The poor fellow lost one
arm, and was so terribly burned
about the head that he is not expected
to outlive the Freedmen's Bureau.
Chief Justice "Walker, of the Su?
preme Court of Arkansas, delivered
i an opinion on the 9th instant, de
! daring the acts of all Legislatures,
and judgments of courts, etc., since
the ordiuance of secession was passed,
to be valid and binding, except in
cases where they were in conflict with
the Constitution and laws of the
United States. The court reversed
an order of an inferior court quash?
ing an execution issued since the ?
surrender, upon a judgment rendered
after the secession of the State.
MISERS MURDERED TN MASSACHU?
SETTS AND MAINE.-Last Wednesday
morning the charred remains of In?
galta Damon wore found among the
ruins of his barn, which had been
burnt on the previous night. He was
a miser and dwelt alone. On the 8th,
in Franconia, New Hampshire, Thos.

solitary life, was found murdered in
the cellar of his dwelling. His head
liad been cleft with an axe. His
house had been pillaged.
