WASHINGTON. Progress in the House on the New Tax Bill. Debate on the Sections Re lating to the Internal Revenue Bureau, A Strong Pressure for a Recon struction of the Cabinet. Committee of Conference Ask ed by (he Honsc on the Arkansas Bill. Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune. Washington. D. C., June 4. DERATE IN the house ON TUB NSW TAX BILL. Direct debate on the Tax bill by sections, in which speeches are limited to five minutes, was begun to-day at 3 o'clock. Mr. Blaine got the floor nnd moved to strike out the first section, S|Fch makes the Rcreime Bureau an independent department. His argument wa« that under tbe bill as proposed by the committee, the President might, as scon as Congress adjourned, suspend the ptosent head of tbe bureau and appoint one of his own tools, whereby the revenue service would at oucc become a great deal worse than it is now. The debate that followed was partici pated in by Messrs. Logan, Judd, Wood. S-chenck, Beck, Maynard, Nicholson, Woodward, Cobb, Jones, Pile, Mullins, • Randall, and Garfield, some of the gentlemen speaking several times. Mr. Garfield was the only Repub lican who fully sustained Mr. Blaine's motion. Tbe Democrats opposed tbe proposition In the bill on the ground that it was unconstitutional. Messrs. Schcnckand Randall had some sharp spar ring about Culick. Collectorin the Third Pennsyl vania District, whose removal was recommended by Follms six months ago, and whom the Secre tary of the Treasury substantially reports as one ofthe most corrupt or worthless officers in the service, but who is retained In office by the Presi dent of the whiskey ring of Philadelphia. Mr- Blaine believed one-third, of the revenue officers to bo thieves, and thought nearly ali would be in a month-after Congress adjourned, if the bill passed as. it came from the committee. Mr. Schenck concurred in the view as to the number of thieves now in the service, but held that the passage ol tbe committee's recommendation would bring about honesty in tbe bureau. Tbc general view of the Republicans was that the ser vice must be put in charge of some one man who shall be responsible for the entire administration of .the dtpanmenu No action was taken prior to the recess. At tbe evening session the Tax bill was resumed in the Hons- at half-past 7. Mr. Blaine withdrew his motion to strike out tbe first section, and Mr. Garik Id immediately pro posed an amendment, in effect to leave the Revenue Bureau under the Secretary of the Treasury, with an increased salary. The effect of this, if adopted, would have been,eonally with Blaine's propositon, to defeat the Ways and Committee on what they consider ancs feature of the lull. Debate upon the mo tion was \ crf animated for some time, during which Mr. Schenck declared that he would aban don the bill if tbe amendments were adopted. It took a lone time to get a quorum, and it was ibex defcat.-d by a vote of 46 to 50 The Republi cans who voted with Messrs. Blaine and Garfield, and against the Ways and Means Committee, were: Trowbridge. Beaman, Wcsbbum.Mass.Knontz. Dawes, I-aflin. Baker, Washburn, Wis ~l‘erham, Ingensoll, Kctchnm, Dubbard.VV.Va.. "Ward, Lincoln. VanAernam, Hubbard, Churchill, Robi-rtson, Price, Poland, Ferries, Farnsworth. Myers, Fla, The defeat of this proposition closed action on the first section, and the debate then followed on amendments to the other sections. One was adopted applying the eight-hour law to the Revenue Department, by a rote of 51 to 46. A separate vote will be taken on this when it conics Into the House, where It will probably be defeated. Mr. Judd carried th:oagb the amendment that the Commis sioner shall not be removed or suspended from the duties of his office except by advice and con sent of the Senate. A sharp debate came up on Mr. Garfield’s mo tion to strike out the sixth section, which gives the Commissioner sole power to appoint and re move all officers of the Rcvecoe service witboat responsibility to anybody. No action was taken, and the House adjourned at ten o'clock. It was so generally known that the police were In readiness for any trouble that the city as a whole wa® comparatively quiet la-t night. There wasaome disturbance In the section toward the •ry yard, but the officers on duty there checked nt belore an outbreak occurred. <Juite a number of person® were arrested during the night for car rying weapons In violation ofluw. Another mur der look place, bnt it was not preceded by any rioting. Three white men. two Democrats and one Republican, were together at a drink ing saloon and ail became more or tes® intoxicated, when, as they stood in front of the building a dispute aro®v about political mat ters, and one of the Democrats'drew a revolver and shot the Republican, killing hita instantly. The murderer was arrested at once, and has been committed for trial. The murdered man was a book-binder, tiamo.l Kcllaher. originally from Boston, and leaves a wife and three children. *rhc ucgiu who murdered the white man on Pennsylvania avenue, on Tuesday night, has not yet been found, nor are there any traces of his Identity. Very few rioters of Monday and Tues day have been arrested. The city ia settling down into its ordinary quiet condition. SENATE OFFICERS The Senate canons this morning did nothin? but agree upon a candidate for Secretary. Three ballots were had.

Weils has prepared fortheCom jrecc of Ways and Means the following exhibit or the probable expenditures of the military eer rice for the next fiscal year; The expenditures of tbc current fiscal year car ried to the account of tbc War Department, are f123,55U,4'.'6. The bill mow pending) making ap propriations for the expenses of the eatne Depart ment for the next fiscal rear cotcfs an aggregate of but JS-3,081,013. * • Two Questions naturallv suggest themselves in connection with this statement, viz : First. What explanation ran be given for tbc apparently excessive expenditures charged to the account of the War Department for the current fiscal year—a year popularly assumed to be one of peace f And, second. What reasons arc there for supposing that tbc expenses of tbc same department are to be reduced during the next fiscal year to an ex tent sufficient to be covered by the pending ap propriation of «33,000,tt0» In answer to these questions, attention should be railed. In the first instance, to tbc fact that a very considerable part of the annual expenditures at present charged to the War Deportment are in no manner connected with Its usual current ex penses, bnt have been referred or charged to Us account cither by reasons cf precedent or for con venience of settlement or disbursement. This will appear evident from the following analysis : The total expenditures through the War De fiartment for the current fiscal year will be as be ore stated, f 188,859,408. Under this head, however, arc included the following temporary or extraordinary items, none of which can be classed as among the regular “ army” or ** war” expenditures • Bounties. Reimbursing State war claims.. Private claims for war damages. Frecdmen's Bureau Subsistence ot Indians and advances on account of Interior Department. Total $51,636,300 This leaves $79,29-y w* as the aggregate war ex penditures of the War Department for fie current year ; an aggregate which has been largely aug mented by the existence of Indian hostilities on the frontiers during the summer and fall of 1867. The above expenditure of $79,921,105 will, it Is believed, be reduced daring the next fiscal rear by tbe following items: From discontinuance of Indian hostil ities 120,003,003 From reduction of pay of army, (the current reduction of the army being at the rate of 809 men per month),quar termasters'and other expenses 9,030,000 Estimated reduction of other expendi tures— Military Academy, Ornnatce and Engineer Bureaus, etc., including items covered ov ‘•lapping" appropri ations separately estimated 5,0X1,000 $31,000,000 Assuming tbc above estimates as correct, tbc regular expenditures of the War Department for the next fiscal year may be taken to be about $3^,000,000; which la nearly in accordance with the revised estimates submitted by General Grant acting as Secretary of War. The appropriations imported for tbe War De partment for tbc next fiscal year are $33,0?T,013; leaving a deficiency on tbe above estimate of about $5,000,000. The extraordinary items included under the bend of the expcnd'tures of tbe War Department, viz.: Bounties, State claims-prlvate claims, freed men, »tc., will, as belote stated, amount daring the current fiscal year to $51,635,300. Thcdi.-positionforthe next fiscal year ofthe same cla?s of expenditures will bo as follows: For bounties, $40,!W0,H>3. This amount will be paid out of moneys in the Treasury not otherwise appropriated, in accordance with the terms of the act authorizing their payment, and has. in the schedule of expenditures before submitted, been estimated independently. The State claims for war expenses reimbursed during tbc present fiscal rear amounted to s!'.loV*«. These claims, however, have been nearly all settled, and will probably require for tbe next fiscal year an expenditure not exceeding $1,000,000. The expenditures on acconntof the Freedmcn's Bureau for the current fiscal year will be $2,100,- 000. The expenditures of this bureau for the current year, derived from appropriations hither to made, but not yet expended, may be estimated at $2,000,000. Tbc expenditures .for subsistence of Indians, viz.;isl,ooo.ooo, for the current year, were, in part, an aivance made by the War Department on ac count of the Department of tbe Interior, and were wbollv exceptional, and will not again be requir ed. The expenditures settled by tbc Treasury and paid by the War Department on account of private war claims, for the current fiscal year, amount to $5,11G,3<.0. For th«* last fiscal year tbe payments under this head were In excess of $7,000,000. The amount required for tho nest fiscal year is wholly problematical nnd uncertain, but may be esti mated at $5,000,000. Bat whatever they may amount to, tbey arc not Erepcrly chargeable to 'be account of the War epartment. and should be provided for by a special and definite appropriation. Assuming the corrcctncs* of the above analysis of the expenditures charged to the account of tbc War Deportment, tbc estimated expenditures, beyond the 33.081,0:3, for which additional reve tme is to be provided, would appear to be as fol lows : For army expenditures proper $ 5,000,000 For reimbursement of State claims.... 1,000,000 Freedmen's Bureau 2,000,000 Private claims b.W/.000 Total 5U.003.0X) To offset this we shall have a probable surplus for the next fiscal year of at least sufficient to more than cover a much greater deflcleucv.

Several gentlemen argued that the resolution was out of order, from the fact that the present organization was hot a temporary one. The Chair ruled that. It being only a preliminary subject, and one which may be adopted or reject ed by tbe permanent organization, it was In order. Tbc resolution was therefore adopted, and the Chair appointed the following gentlemen tbc committee: Messrs.

Mr. Froley, of Philadelphia, submitted the fol lowing t Whereas, The revenue laws of the United Slates now existing were enacted before steam locomotion, both by lake and ocean, had revolt! lionized the manner of conducting the great com mercial enterprise exchange of the world: and. Whereas, The provisions of these laws re quired the entry and appraisal of ail goods im ported for account of parties resident at interior ports to be marie at the port of arrival: and. Whereas, This provision of law. without bene fit to any one, by greatly overcrowding certain custom houses, by intcr|K>6iug unnecessary delays and expenses, and by necessitating many Inter mediate agencies at the port of arrival, operates to retard the legitimate current of trade between foreign producers and consumer? of tho interior of the country, and thus curtail the rev enue of the government by discouraging foreign trade,; and Whereas, A bill. No. 7SB, has been passed by the House of Representatives designed to remove manyjof the difficulties interposed by the present laws; therefore, li'tolud. That this organization do most nr geiitlv solicit of the honorable Senate of toe United States, now in .session, «n equally favora ble consideration of sold bill, and no enactment into a law. The Chair decided the preamble and resolution, at the present stage, out of order. Mr. hioley moved that they be referred to the permanent Organization for consideration.

Chief Justice Chase aud the Demo cratic Nomination, Washington Correspondence (Jane 2) of the New York Herald. The Chief Justice frankly admits that the Radi cal party and himself differ widely In their views; and ns parties aic now organized ho is for the Democratic party. He differs from them upon only on< point—that of universal manhood suf frage. Be is agreed with them on all other of the great Issues. Incidentally he remarked If he were elected by that party to the Presidencv, while he would certainly carry out their policy faithfully, he would labor to make tbc party one of permanent usclalncss. apon the broad ground of nationality and material progress. In the opinion oi the Chief Justice the deplor able corditiou ui tue southern states demands not only the proper consideration of Congress, hut also material aid from the general government •t he war has been ended for three years and those Mates should lie in practical relations with tbc government. There is no constitutional authority to hold them m subjugation, and if there were it would be alike unwise and unjust. He favored tbc enfranchisement of every white man in the South and removing the political disabilities of even* man in the nation. Ho thinks freedom and manhood suffrage should he an unquestioned right, but be controverts the Idea that any other power than the Mates themselves can confer it He holds that tbc general government has no control over the question, and that the powerrests in the Mates, where alone it should reside. 'I be Chief Justice would remove the political disabilities imposed on the people of the South by the fourteenth amendment. Hat as those States as organized will nndonbtedlyratifyit.be proposes a general amnesty ns a modo or relief, and also as on act which would tend towards the reconciliation of the two sections. Furthermore he regards this as absolntcly necessary, as the provisions of that amendment exclude thousands from office, both under toe government and the States, and this will lead to complications which sbonld be avoided. Mr. Chase urges that the most liberal aid should be extended to the south in improving their rail road system and also their navigable rivers. He thinks aid should he niven to repair the levees on the Mississippi, build now ones wherever they are required, even from Cairo to the Gnlf. That the millions of acres of land which wonld be re claimed In the Valley of the Mississippi by a Judi cious levee svstem, would qnadrnplo the produc ing power of that section and add correspondingly to the wealth and prosperity of the country. Mt. Chase strenuously urges the early retain to specie payments. lie believes it coaid be done without damage to any interests, and in a com paratively short period of time It wonld not mat ter whether the bonds were paid in greenbacks or gold, as the public credit would be re-established and greenbacks be worth par valne. Tbe Police Court, Edward A. Cooper, the Individual who took snrh a sanguinary method of settling a family quarrel on Wednesday evening, by shooting bis brother-in-law, Nicholas lines, was bronchi op for examination at the Police Court yesterday afternoon. The prisoner’s appearance was any thing bnt prepossessing. and his swelled and con tused leatures showed that he had been most un mercifully dealt with in the way of ponnding and cuffing. Ills lips, nose and eyes were swollen ant of all sbape, which, taken in connection with a dogged, downcast look that appears habitual, gives one an unfavorable impression of him. When asked by the magistrate If he was gnlliy of assaulting Nicholas Dries with a deadly weapon, with intent to kill, he answered, in a desponding voice, "lam not gnilty of any in tent to kill. He made some difference between me and my wife, and I tried to scare him off, that was all.” Officer Ludwig, of the North Division Preventive Police, and a partner of the injured man. Dries, make a brief statement of the affair, w htch was substantially the same as that given in yesterday's Tkibunt. As soon as Mr. Dries bad received the shot he cried ont “ Boys lam shot, I am killed," upon which be fell down npon the prostrate form of • 'ooper, who, in the meanwhile, bad been felled to the floor by some of the officers standing near. In some way Dries got hold of the pistol, which had been knocked ont of Coop er's nanas, and he immediately proceeded to bat ter the face of hta wonld-be murderer with the butt of it. Owing to the Diet that the wonnded man will not be tn a condrtion to appear at the trial for fen or fifteen davs. further investigation of the case was postponed until the 13th lost.. In the fore noon. The prisoner was held In bail in the sum of $5,000. Mr. Dries is not yet considered by his physician as entirely ont of danger, bnt tbe wound is ascer tained not to be of so fatal a description as it at first appeared to be. Mrs Mary Collins, who lives near the corner of Robey and Forqnerstreeta, canght Mrs. Rsnrah Cronan in the act of stealing some clothes off tbe line In her yard.

In the Carlisle (Pa,) Herald of May 29 wa find the following Interesting item: On Sabbath morning last a most interest ing and impressive scene was witnessed in the pulpit ox the First Presbyterian Church of Carlisle- It was the appearance there of three clergymen—Rev. George DulHsld, Sr., Rev. George Dnffleld, Jr., and Rev. fiamncl Duffield. father, ton and grandson. The sermon in the morning was delivered by the Rev. George DniSeld. Sr., and it was truly an eloquent and impressive one. filled with devotion to his God and over, flowing with the love of seals. Al though the sermon was one of unusual length, the venerable clergyman evinced un wonted bcdilr power for one ofhls great age, and showed that time had robbed him of none ot his mental faculties. Daring its delivery, many of bis auditory were melted in tears, and all appeared deeply affected. It was in deed a touching scene to hear the sobs and see the tears of gray-haired men and women, many of whom he bad baptized and admitted to church membership, as they listened to tbe words of their spiritual father. The whole scene was one which is rarely wit nessed in a country church, and was one which will not soon be forgotten. Drowning of Two Tonne Men and Two Young Women. From the South Bend (Ind.) Register. A melancholy accident happened here last (Tuesday) evening, which has brought grief and sorrow to three homes, and thrown a gloom over onr whole city. About half-past six o'clock last evening, Engese Seixas and Charles Walterhonse. ac companied by Misses Adele Seixus and Mol lle C. Miller, started beat-riding, *lth the intention of go*ng ashuit cbuucoup tho river. Launchlogthe boat near the headgates of the west race, very close to which raria the elbow of the asm, it is supposed that be fore the young men g:t hold of the core, or were conscious of the danger, the boat was drawn into the swift current and carried over the falls. Two men on the bank of the river saw the boat go, and they slate that it went over sideways, all the parties being In it until it capsized Just on the edge of the dam. There was no body near enough to render them any assist ance, the workmen having all left the shops, and they were consequently lost. The young folks were well known la the city, and had hosts of warm friends, who are filled with grief at this terrible calamity. Eugene and Adele Seixas were the two old' est children of T. S. Seixas, Esq.; Mollie C. Miller, the youngest daughter of Joseph Miller, Esq., and Charles Waltcrhouse, the oldest eon of Jesse L. Waiterhouse, Esq., oil of this city. The body of Miss Miller was found last evening, fifteen minutes after the accident happened, near the new bridge. That of Charles Waiterhouse was found near the same place this (Wednesday) morning, about six o'clock. Tbe body of Eugene Seixas was found about nine o’clock, and that ot Adele about noon, near a large sycamore tree, be yond the foot of tte east race, and a quarter of a mile from where the disaster occurred. The funeral of Miss Miller will take place to morrow morning at 10 o’clock, from the residence of her father, on Michigan street, and Charles Walterhonae’s from his father’s residence, corner of Lafayette and Water streets, at 3 o’clock in the afternoon of tbe same day. The bodies of Mr. Sexias* chil dren will he forwarded to New York city for Interment. Both the young men were faith ful soldiers, Eugene having served in tho Twenty first Indiana Battery for three years, and Charles in a brigade band. Tbe latter belonged to the present Cornet Band of this city. (Elortjing. WHITE DUCK VESTS. 5 0 0 Just Received, DeG raff’s, Corner State and Randolph-sts.

We now give timely notice that this sea* son of the year Is peculiarly favorable for their proper treatment and speedy and per manent core, by the new system of practice which 1 have Introduced, and of which, alter unprecedented success of years, I am war ranted In speaking as the true mode of cure In this prevalent and dangerous does of mala dies. . r . The new system not only embraces all that Is valuable In Inhalations of Medicated Va por and Atomization, bat applications of far greater utility and Importance. The treat ment is not only local, bat constitutional, and yet the end Is attained without much medicine. The peculiar manner of address ing the curative agent directly to the dis eased parts, then, by constitutional means, promoting, modifying and correcting the natnral secretions, permanent cures arc speedily effected.
