Tho bill for the confiscation ol rebel property, proposed by Mr. Harris In the Senate on Monday as a substitute for the bill reported by the Judl chry Committee, provides fur the forfeiture of the entire property ol all persons having hereto fore taken an oath to support the Constitution of the United Stales, or holding positions iu the Confederate service requiring theui to lako an oath to support the Constitution of the Conled eratc Government, who shall, alter the passage of the bill, bo found In arms against the nation al authority, or aiding and abetting others who miy be win arms. Mr. Harris's bill, as will be seen, does not confiscate tho property of nil persons commit ting ccrUla specified acts, but only of certain classes of persons, so described as to exclude those who may be entitled lo m-rcirul consld-1 cratlon, because Ignorant and raided by others. The bill only reaches those who have held, under the national and State Governments, or now bold under the Confedcrato Government, unices uf a grade to require, for the discharge of their duties, the taking of no oath to support the Constitution of the United SUtes, tr of the Confederate Slates. The seventh section ol Mr. limit's bill Is as follows: ' That every person bavins or pretending to have any claim to tho service or Ubor ot any other person in any Stale under tho Una there ol, who during the resent rebellion shall take up arms against the United Statos, or In any mannor give aid and comfort to said rebellion, ahall thereby turthwlth forfeit nil right In siieh sen iio or labor; and the persona trmn w htm It is claimed to be due, commonly celled slates, shall, ij'so failo, on the coramlfdon or tho act or forfeiture by the party bavin,; or pretending to have any such eltim lolbu eervico ir tiibur as alnresHid.be discharged therefrom, anu be come forever thereafter freo persons, any Uw uf any htate or or tho United Males to the inu Irary notwithstanding.

Upon this section, Mr. Hurls ulw.Tved : " But vv hatorer ele may or may not ho d c, it cannot be wrong or unwise lor the Covern meot to avail itsell of the power w hlch trevun has placed In Its hands to declaro the forlrlturo ul the slave property of rebul.

Thu New York Tim's, which has made list if notorious by lis advocacy of lbe qttiit slralegy ol the "Army ot the Potomac," broke out lusl week in the lollowlng warlike elraio : "flm Navy liaptrtmenl baa doubtless good reasons to give lor permitting tho disabled Msrriraao to bo reutlod at leisure, nndlo select her own linio and pi toe for another essay of hor tlestritcllvn powers. Among those In New York who uuderstacil such matters, quite ns well as tho Secretary himself, It Is believed that the msans Instituted (partly by Govern ment) to destroy tho Merrimau, would have dono tho work far more effeolttally bad thoy attacked her buldly at the navy yard, crippled and wllhout steam, than thoy can tin It now when she la repaired, nowly armed, and with hlo tin tip and abundant so vroom.

This Is a now rote for tbe Timet to appear In. In New York, reasons may exist In certain disappointed steamboat quarters for laying upon the Secretary of Ihe Navy the blame of leaving the Merrimao to bo filled up without obstruc tion at Norfolk.

The President, yesterday, transmitted to Ik House of Representatives, In reply to a resola- tlon of that body, voluminous documents rela tlvo to the condition of our affairs with Mex ico. The correspondence between Secretary Sew ard and Mr. Uorwln Is highly Interesting, as well as Important Mr. Seward writes, under dtfeof Juno 3, 1861, that" Information has been received, which wears an air of aulhencily, fiat a'deslgn exists on the part of the Insurgents to gain possession of Lower California. The United Stales does not desire to acquire any part of Mexico. Tho President expects that you will exercise your best judgment to prevcol Insurgent armed vessels Irom finding shelter in Mexican ports, and prevent arms being carried through Mex ico." Mr. Corwin writes to Mr. Seward, 29th June, 18C1 : "It has been my constant endeavor, since my arrival here, to possess tho Mexican mind of tho true cause of our difficulties, and thus enable tbem lo estimate the danger to this republic, which will result Irom any un favorable termination of them. I am quite sure, that whilst this Government will on- dearer to preserve peaceful relations with all European powers on fair terms, It regards tho United States as lis true and only reliable friend In any struggle which may Involve Us national existence." Mr. Corwin writes lo Mr. Seward, July 29th, UC1, that "Karope is quite wllliug U see us humbled, and will not fall to take advantage of cur embarrassments to execute purposes of which she would not have dnamed had we remained at peace." Mr. Seward writes lo Mr. Corwin, September 2d, 1SC1 : " The President greatly desires that the political statu of Mexico, us au ludepend' cut n ttlon, shall be permanently maintained." Mr. Seward writes to Mr. Corwin, February 2olh, 1SG2, that It Is not advisable to negotiate a treaty which will require the Uullcd i'lates to assume any portion of the principal or In tcrcst of the debt of Mexico, or that will re quire the concurrence of European Powers. Mr. Seward writes to Mr. Corwin, April 3, 18C2 : " Under these circumstances the Presi dent Is unable'o snggod lo you any other mode for contributing to the deliverance of our sister republic from the embarrusstneoU by which It Is surrounded, which will be ac ceptable to the Senate. Meanwhile, 1 desire to direct your most earnest attention to the neces sity of guarding, if possible, against any such pledge of the resources of Mexico to foreign Powers as might affect our course Injuriously, or Impair the ability of lbe people or Mexico to sustain the free Government established by their own choice. You will not leave the Gov ernment of Mexico In doubt, for a moment, that the Governmeut and people ol the United States are not indifferent concerning tbe peril by which Ihey are menaced."

It pro vldes that any person or peraous owing allegi ance to the Unll-d Suies, wh shall, alter Its p tssago, commit acts of treasou, shall, on con vidian, by confession or the testimony of two wlimsses, suiter cither death or imprisonment lor not less than fivo years, and be fined not If as than teu thousand doll irs, tho flue to be levied upon any ur ull ol the property of the p irsous so convicted ; and every such person shall be f. rever Incapable and dl qualified from holding any ofll:o under tho United Stales. The slaves if such convicted persons ure declared free. Any act of treason com mitted prior Ui tbe passage of this net, miy be punished, by any law now existing. The Pres ident is empowered, through commissioners, lu hold, occupy, or rent the prnpnly of arm ed rebels until emb a tim as judicial pro ceedings shall In restored In site's District.

Tbe President is also empow erd to grant pardon tr amnesty to any such ptrsous, at his discretion. Jtff-Tlio Philadilphia Inquirer, in reference t J th 1 heavy los-es at Pittsburg L iu Hug, says: "Tho hiavy slated loss ot etb'ei-n to twenty th itisand mm was doubted by all, an.
