The investigating committee In tho
Caldwell caso,will roport to-morrow, if
there are two reports, which Is probablo,
it is doubtfull If Caldwell is expelled, bo
cause the senate has already, and very re
cently, shown that It is very loth to oust
its own members. It Is certain that tho
majority, will report in favor of Cald
well's peremptory expulsion, while the
minority, if not in favor of an out an out
acquittal, will favor a mild reprimand, and
end tho matter there. If there is only one
report It will probably be adopted with
out hesitation, no matter in whoso favor it
may be; but if there should be two, Cald
well will be safe, msjority or no majority,
as it takes a two-thirds rule to expel.

CUUA ISIWOltti THE HOUSE
COMMITTEE ON FOREIGN
(From tho New York Herald,)
Gonvml Batiks, thu chairman of tbo
houso of cutumiltco on foreign u Hairs ot
congress, bus been nil along the triend of
tno patriot uuuans, anu lias mailu several
I'tl'orts to iiiduco thn government, either
through tho action of congress or by the
direel action of tho president, to havo
thorn recognized as belligerents. Ac
cording to our Wellington dispatches he
has renewed his efforts. He otlered a re
solution in the houso of representatives
recommending the president to open
communication with foreign governments
with a view of devising the most efficient
means for tho protection of non-combatants,
to euforco emancipation and the
rules of civilized warfare In Cuba, and
finally to establish peace in the distracted
island. The resolution was referred to
tho committee on foreign affairs, and, it Is
said, will come up again shortly. Mod
erately worded as it is, tbo object i to
concede belligorcnt rigbta to the Cubans,
which they aro entitled to by fouryeari of
heroic warfare. It is said that tho repre
sentations of Col, Macias, tbo agent of tho
Cuban republic, who has just returned
from Europo. havo had some influence in
this new movement. As Gen. Banks and
congreu wore deterred some
time ngo from taking action in
this matter by the administration,
and as congress, bolng indisposed to do
anything adverse to tho will of tbo Presi
dent, who represents the dominant party,
there is reaion to neinvo tnis movement is
In accordance with the vhws of the ad
ministration. If io, and we hope it is, the
Cuban dimcuity is aeai solution. The
lone itruscle. seemingly impossible for
Spain to terminate it, only needed the
recognition of the Oubam as belligerents
by the American government to secure the
independence of Cuba. The Information
afforded by our correspondence, and the
supply of material of war and other
Beeemrlei lately to lth Cubans by
blockade runnors, with other facts
favorable to the Cuban
causo, may have bad tbo proper effect
upon tbe administration and congress.
If England should be disposed to unlto
wltb our government to thus terminate
the horrible civil war in Cuba, and to ex
tinguish slavsry there, as Is stated, all tho
better; but If not, tbe United States
government should no longer be a naislvo
spectator of tbe atrocities on it border.
.Let us hope congress will take some ac
tion before tbe present short icislon ends
io encourage ana g-Udo the president, In a
more determined, humane and American
policy with regard to Cuba.

short in her neck and confined by a black
