Marsh (or judicial service* rendered by him, under the act of the lot of August, IS48, while minister resident of the United States to the Ottoman Porte; which was read twice l>y n? title. i u ii No objection having been made, the bill was considered and passed iThis bill gives to Mr. Marsh the sum ol one thousand dollars per annum for his judicial, in ad dition to his diplomatic, services, during the period of Ins mission to the Oitoman Porte.] Mr CLAY introduced a bill to relieve the Com missioner of Pensions from the performance oi certain clerical duties Mr Clay urged the necessity ol the prompt passage ofthe mil, us the signing of from some four or livo hundred certificate* and lund war rants a dav greatly interfered with the more im portant duties of that otticer, and promising if it gave rise to any debate to withdraw the motion. No objection huvmg been made, the bill was read a third time and passed. I This bill simply uulhorizea the Commissioner of Pensions, under the approval of the Secretary of the Interior, to appoint a person to sign the name of the Commissioner to certificate* and warrants, and making such signature valid. Mr. BAYARD introduced a bill to provide for the public printing, engraving, and binding. Mr. CAJrS submitted the following resolution, which was read: Sztolved, That the Committee on Naval Afiairs be instructed to inquire into the expediency of in creasing the navy of the United States. Mr. C said he would not call lor its considera tion at present. GENERAL A I'FRO PR 1 ATI ON BILLS. On motion by Mr. HUNTER,.the Senate pro ceeded to I he consideration ol the following report of the Committee on Finance : Resolved, That the Committee on Finance be instructed to prepare and report such ot tbegene rnl appropriation bills as they may deem expe ^'^Vlr. SEWARD rose and addressed the Senate at considerable length, contending that the resolu tion of the Committee on Finance was nn innova tion upon the long established practice ol the Go vernment : and he went inio the reasons that actuated the franiers ol the Constitution in insert ing a provision that all bills for raising revenue should originate in the popular branch. Small States were equal in the Senate and large States ^superior in ihe House, which might be considered as a compromise, which he held would be disturbed if the resolution was adopted. While he admitted that the Constitution did not in express terms prohibit the preparation of general appropriation bills by the Senate, still he thought that as the other branch had always exercised that power, with the sanction o( the Senate, the spirit of the instrument ai least lequired the course that had hitherto been pursued. The establishment ol the two Houses of Congress was for the purpose of dividing the powers of Government, and imposing proper checks end balances. He hoped, there fore. ihat such innovation would not be made upon the long-established usage ol the Government. Mr. HUNTER defended ibe report of the Com mittee on Finance with zeal, contending that there was no very mark-d difference between the bills that were altiiort daily originated in the Senate and the general appropriation bills. Had they not nn hour or so since parsed a bill for the reliel of George P. Marsh, appropriating money from the trensu \ for his relief; and, if that could be done, why i"1' ? general appropriation bill .' If the Sen ate hud .power to originate and pass a pension bill lor the relief ot a >iuj:le individual, why could it not originaie and pass u general appropriation bill for the relief of all pensiorers ? If they could originate and pass u bill to purchase a custom house anil post office for Georgetown, in this Dis triet, why could they not originate a civil and diplomatic appropriation bill, which sometimes established many custon houses? II they could originate and pass a bill for the relief of the suf ferers by French spoliations, why could they not originate bills involving far less amounts? He insisted that if this power wns denied to the Sen ate more than half it" usefulness would be lost nnd its efficiency much impaired. The whole ob ject of the committee in the matter wa? to relieve the other brn eh by n division of the labor, and give each branch more lime for examination nnd a riyed scrutiny of the public expenditures. Mr. TOOMBS sustained the report, adverting to the little scrutiny which bills involving enor mous amounts of money usually received Irom want of time, and said that in one case the navy appropriation bill, involving eight millions of dol lars, had lo be passed by the Senate without even reading, because there was not time ?l,owe? The debate was continued by Messrs. SUM NER and WILSON, sustaining the positions as sumed by Mr. Seward ngninM the report, and by by Mr. TOUCY, defending ii ; when Ihe question was taken, and the report was asrreed to. And the Senate adjourned to Monday. House of Representative*. The House met at 12 o'clock. After prayer by the Rev. Dr. Sindkrland. the journal of yester dav was read. _ e .. Mr. PENNINGTON, of New Jersey, from the committee appointed on the part ot the House to wait on the President and inform him of the or ganization of the two Houses and of their readi ness to receive any communication he might be pleased to make, reported that ihe committee had performed that duty, anil in reply the President had stated that he had a due appreciation of the courtesy, and would be happy to co-operate in any measure that might lend to promote the public interest. . . . Mr. YVASH BURNE, of Illinois, submitted the following resolution : Rrtolvtd, That the Speaker be authorized to appoint the standing committees of this House. Mr. BRANCH, of North Carolina, could see no occasion for the adoption of the resolution, as the sevenih rule provided that all committees should be appointed by the Speaker, unless otherwise specially directed by the House, in which case ihey should be appointed by ballot. Mr. JONES, of Tepnessee. said that a resolu tion similar to the one now pending had always been adoped after the election of Speaker, and also at the second session of each ( angress. The question was then taken, and the resolu tion of Mr. WashbI'RNK was agreed to. The SPEAKER stated that the first business in order wa? the election sf a Printer to the Hou*e Mr CAMPBELL, of Ohio, moved to reconsider the vote by which the House yesterday resolved to proceed to the election ol a Public Printer, with a view of proceeding to thn business on the Speaker1* table. Ilia object wa< to obtain the consideration of the resolution of the Senate for the relief of the suffering poor of the cities of Washington and Georgetown. There were rea sons why they should act upon that resolution even if they should not pass it; and he therefore trusted that his motion would prevail. Mr. JONES, of Tennessee, moved to lay the motion to reconsider on the table; which motion did not prevail: Was 82, nays 95. The motion to reconsider was then agreed to: Yeas 102, nays 81. The question accordingly recurred on the mo tion that the House proceed to the election of a Public Printer. Mr CAMPBELL, of Ohio, moved to postpone the further consideration of that motion until Momlay next. Mr. HOUSTON, of Alabama, appealed to the House to allow the message of the President of the United Stales to betaken up, ordered to be prfnted, and referred to the .Committee of the Whole on the state of the Union. It would con sume no time, and the committees, when appoint ed, would not be able to proceed to the discharge of their duties unless this should be done. Objection was made. Mr. NICHOLS, of Ohio, submitted the follow ing resolution: Resolved, That the Clerk of this House Ih? and he is hereby authorized to pay to the officers, clerks, messengers, pages, and other employes of the House of Representatives since the com mencement of the present session such sums as may be due to them for attendance and service nnd4r existing laws, rules, and regulations of the House. He explained that some question had been raised concerning- the pay ol these officers, and a resolution of this kind was necessary in order thai they might obtain what was due them. The resolution was agreed to. The question was then stated to l?e on the mo tion that the House proceed to the election ol a printer. Mr. STANTON, of Ohio, moved that the motion be laid on the table ; which motion was negatived. And then, at half pa?i two o'clock, the Housa adjourned until Monday: Yeas 87, nsys 82. nHOWNH MARBLB HOTR1. PKNNflTl.VAICIA AVKRtIR WASHINGTON CITY. Coca! anb personal. * M" National Printing Office.?In the Senate, on Thursday, Mr. Bayard introduced a bill to pro vide for the public priming, eugravtug, and bind ing. The object is to disconnect the printing of Congress and the Executive with the public press, and propot-es tlie erection, under the authority of the President of the United States, on sonic con venient site of the public grounds, of a suitable lire-proof building, lor these purposes. It autho rizes two feuperiniendcnts ; one of printiug, and the other of engraving ; and they are not, under the fear of lines and penalties, to be connected with the newspaper press. 101 ? Complaint* are many, iirsl concerning the damage to property by the preeent thaw of the snow, and, secondly, the badness of'gaslight, oc casioned by the late cold weather. To remedy the latter mechanics and laborers counected with the company are now employed inspecting the piped and burners. According to present indi cations, thu cause* of complaiul will soou cease to exist. Gone Home.?Availing themselves of the two days' adjournment of Congress, many members have gone home on " flying visits," while others were yesterday engaged in tlu transaction of business at the public Departments. Mr. Buchanan, it is stated on what is claimed as good authority?his own?intends making the the tour of Europe before his return home. Heada Off"!?The recently elected officers of the House of Representatives, particularly the Door-keeper, are busy making out "the docu ment#," which are usually enclosed in "yellow covers." The color is indicative of the act of dismissal. The vacancies, of course, are imme diately filled with "disinterested patriots!" The Sleighing is nearly over. Now and then the jingling of the bells is heard; but the music is out of order, considering the appearance of the streets. For nearly five weeks there has been a continuation of the exciting sport. Land Warrants.?The buying price for eighty and one hundred and sixty-acre warrants is $1,004; selling $1,074; sixties and one hundred and twenties, buying, 81.024; selling. $1,034; forties, buying $1.10, selling $1,124.

Office on 14th street, oppoait* Willarda Hotel S?,,29?tf BftbWN ?r WINTER. ENGLISH, FRENCH, AND AMERICAN FASHIONS, 1866. GEORGE P. FOX Han arrived at WllUrd'a Hotel, Wa?h lugtou, D. C. In the delay attending the organization of the House, it is a matter of congratulation that the member* oi' both branches of the Na | tiouul Legislature can, without violuting I heir | political principles, settle upon one popular can 1 didale for their lavor. Mr. Fox, in hit* capacity as a Tailor representing* commerce, has ever merited and continues to rcceive the distinguished title of Leader of Fashion* of the United State*. To that laudable distinction he lias been elevated by the unanimous suffrages of the people He has had the happy faculty of uniting the dissen tient voices in the realm of fashion, aud now represents them in one undivided sentiment. | The House of Representatives lias been at a Iocs for u leade^ lor some time, but the Representu I tive of Fashion is always organized. The f-islnons in the plastic hand of art is to the skill of the artist what the disorganized elements ol the Representative Assembly are to the genius of the orator. The one succumbs to the taste of the artist, the other is subdued by the eloquence of the orator. What the latter is to the Congres sional Assembly, Gkokuh P. Fox is to the Popular Assembly of Fashion. We have thus far insti tuted a parallel, but parallels only run closely to a certain point, thence they diverge, aud thus it is with our leaders of fashions nud our leaders ol politics. The Speaker of Fashiou (lor such we will designate our representative) is never at a loss for the right lit on the right man, and the right man is never at a loss lor the right lit when he applies to our leader. His vote is never cast away, nor yet his money. Both are equally well uud safely invested. Unanimity of opinion can not be supposed to always exist in political as semblies of men representing a diversity of prin ciples, but in the realm of fashion there can be but one opinion, aud that is, that there is but one American fashion and Geo. P. Fox is its leader.
