RICHMOND, February 10.-In the
Convention, tho Judiciary Commit?

ing all debts prior to that date null
and void. The Committee's report

WASHINGTON, February 10.-lu the
House, the following wero introduced :
Instructing the Reconstruction Com?
mittee to report what further legisla?
tion is necessary to enable the late
rebel States to resumo their places in
tho Union; continuing tho Freed?
men's Bureau in Tennessee; to allow
respondents in United States courts
to testify in their owu behalf in
States where such testimony is per?
mitted in local courts. The Judiciary
Committee was directed to inquire as
to the expediency of amending tho
bankrupt lav, to require tho majority
of creditors to compel involuntary
bankruptcy. A resolution, that tho
seat of Government should bo re?
moved to tho Mississippi Valley, was
disagreed to by a strictly sectional
vote-77 to 97. Drawing for seats
created some confusion nud much
merriment. A bill authorizing the
bridging the Mississippi River, at the
joint expense of the Government and
tho railroad company, passed. A re?
solution calling on Grant for a copy
of the President's last letter, and
referring tho Judiciary Committee's
impeachment evidence to the llecou
? 8tructiou Committee, with tho privi?
lege to report at any time, passed.
The House then went into Commit?
tee of the Whole; and a geueral dis?
cussion showed increasing pnrtizau
i lu tho Senate, after u number of
private resolutions, bills aud me?
morials, reconstruction was resumed.
The Supreme Court, in old Geor?
gia case, petitioning to restrain
Stanton, Grant and Pope from pro?
ceeding under tho reconstruction acts,
decided adversely. The reasons for
that opinion, in effect, as follows
were given : The question involved,
and tho right sought to be protected,
were exclusively political in their
character, relating to the sovereignty
and government, and not lo rights of
person or property, and that the
Court had no jurisdiction, therefore,
of the subject matter of tho bill.
They cite tho eases of the Stato of
Rhode Island versus the State of
Massachusetts, of tho Cherokee na?
tion versus tho State of Georgia, and
other cases, to show that tho Court
has no jurisdiction to decide a politi?
cal question. The Chief Justice con?

ANTICIPATING EVILS.-Enjoy the
present, whutever it muy be, and be
not solicitous for tho future ; for if
you take your foot from the present
standing, and thrust it forward to?
wards to-morrow's event, you are in
a restless condition. It is like re?
fusing to quench your present thirst
by feuriug yon will wnnt drink tho
next day. If it bo well to-day, it is
madness to make the present mis-,
eruble by fearing that it may be ill
to-morrow-when you aro full of to?
day's dinner, to fear that you shall
wuut tho next day's supper, for it muy
bo you shnll not, und then to what
purpose was this day's aillictions ?
But if to-morrow you shall want,
your sorrow will como time enough,
though you do not hasten it ; let
trouble tarry till its day comes. But
if it chance to bo ill to day, do not
increase it by the cures of to-morrow.
Enjoy tho blessings of this day, if
God sends them, and tho evils hear
patiently aud sweetly ; for this day
is only ours-we aro dead to the
morrow. Ho, therefore, is wiso who
enjoys as much as possible ; and if
only that day's trouble loans upon
him, it is singular and finite. " Suffi?
cient to the day, (suid Christ,) is the
evil thereof ;" sufficient but not in
tolernble. But if we look abroad,
and bring into ono day's thoughts
tho evils of many, certain and un?
certain, what will be and will never
be, our load will be us intolerable as
it is unreasonable.

of Cambridgo ns a visitor, and de?
clared that unless their request was
granted, they would leave his service.
They wished a change in tho bill of
fare. Inquiry brought out the fact
that they hud for breakfast, tea and
coffee, eggs, bacon, toast, bread and
butter; for lunch, brcud, cheese and
ale ; for dinner, hot joints und pastry;
for tea, toast, bread and butter ; for
supper, meat, bread, cheese and ale.
They wanted mutton chops and beef
