It will ba perceived that the words su
perintendent and sexton are uted inter
changeably iu said act.' Herewith aro
filed cjrta'n ordo-a from His Honor the
Mayor, cimmandioe re-pondent to inter
the partita named inertia. It will be -membsred
that the people of Nash
ville acting through their duly consti
tuted authorities purchajed certain land
and eet apart and devoted tho samo
to the purpose of the burial of all
their dead, rich and poor, white and black,
citizens and etrangers. That eaid lands
were to be used alone as a cemetery. Inat
upon tbe good faith of this undertaking,
citizens and others bought lots therein and
buried their relative?, friendsand strangers ;
by the deeds executed by the corporation,
said purchaser became vested with all the
rights therein granted. That each and all
the citizens, whether owning lots or cot,
have still the right to insist that said land
iball continue to remain and be used and
employed as a cemetery. Respondent is
therefore advised that the devotion of said
land to such purpose as aforesaid, has vest
ed cerlain rights which, cannot be divested
by any action ol the corporation. That
not only any ordinance of tho city of -Nashville,
hut also auy legislative enactment
impairing the obligation of contracts is un
constitutional, and consequently null and
void, and the ordinance of the Common
Council declaring said cemetery a nuis
ance, is wholly inoperative, and a court or
judicature alone can adjudgeita nuisance,
and UDtil this is done, the duties assumed
by respondent, when installed, are incum
bsnt upon him. Respondent therefore
states that the authority by which ha has
permitted interments in said cemetery is
thelawof'the land, and if ho ehould rc-fu-eor

Carolina, from disabilities' by tf o-third
vote. ' -
Mr. Washburn, of Illinois' from the
Committee on appropriations, made a state
ment in reference to its business.' He said
the estimates on which, tho Committee-
would have to act would not reach the"
House till the close of this or the beein
ninr of next week, and not in eeason to
allow the Committee to report any of the
regular appropmuou bills belore the time
when Christmas;recease3 are usually taken.
There were ten regular appropriation bills
to be considered by the House ; the Legis
lature bill, Army bill, avy bill, Post-
office bill. Military Academy bill, faundry
civil bill?. Deficiency bills" and .Consular
and Diplomatic Appropriation bills. In
case of a recess a majority of the members
of the appropriation Committee would re
main in Washington and attend to bnsinessl
nothing would therefore be gained by the
Honaa continuing in session, and lie wat
instructed to propose on lliursday of next
week that on the following- Monday tho
40th Congress would adjourn to the nun,
Several members made motions to ad-
Mr. Washburne: 'Gentlemen around
desire the nnejliOn settled. If now, if that
be judgment of the House, I am willing lo
submit a concurrent resolution for a recess
now. I do not. however, desire to do so
until some other gentleman shall have been
heard of from other committees."
Mr. Schenck desired to say something
about continuing the business of the Com
mittee of Ways and Means.
Mr. Higbte called for the regular order
of busine. The subject was therefore
dropped for tbe present.
Mr. Bingham, from the Committee on
Reconstruction, reported a bill providing
for an election in Virginia, .to be held on
Wednesday, 30th January next. Qur?tion
to be, For'the Constitution or Against the
Constitution adopted by the convention
which met in Richmond, December 3d,
1867. He explained the bill, and siid it
was the same as the one passed last July,
except as lo-lhe time of holding the elec
tion. He hoped the time was near when
there would be no further complaint in
that State as to want of local government
resting on consent of the governed.
Mr. Eldridge inquired whether tho bill
made any proviaiou in reference to persons
voting, excluding the Constitution and
laws of Virginia, or under the reconstruc
Mr. Bingham repled: the bill in no
way change the reconstruction acts as to
the ditqualiCcation of citizens to vote in
Mr. Washburn, of Illinois, Cilled atten
tion to the time fixed for holding the elec
tion, and expressed tbe opinion that Coa
grtsi should fix a much later day. He
thnught the 20th of January too early for
holding the election, and desired to clTer
hu amendment substituting the 2d Tuesday
in April, trusting at that time tho loyal
people of Virginia could be protected.
Mr. Maynard remirked in addition to
the resolution astigned by Mr. Washburn,
that the middle of January was ordinarily
a Very inclement season, and it would ba
very difficult if not impracticable to Becure
anything like a full vote then. He wa,
therefore, in favor of postponement.
After some farther discussion, particu
larly as to the time fiieil, Messrs. Wash
burn, Butler and Boutwcll insisting on a
day as late as May next, and before dispos
ing of it, tbe President's meisage was re
ceived and read, and afier leading to the
public, in debate was pronounced by Mr.
Washburn, of Illinois, m disgraceful to
the country and the President. Mr.
Broomall, of Pennsylvania, and Mr.
Schenck, of Ohio, expressed similar views,
and the message waj laid on tbe table
without the order to print extra copies.
The Virginia election bill was amended
The resolution indictteilby Mr. Robinaoa
yesterday, calling on the President for fur
