Wsarwnorox, Jan. 14.-The followeag is the bureau bill Introduced yesterday. Section first continues in force the act of March 3, 1865, one year from July 16, 1868, with modiAoations con tained in this bill. Section second authorizes the secretary of war, at his discretion, to discontinue the operation of the bureau when a State is folly restored to its constitutional relations in the Union, and is rep resented in Congress, provided, however, that the edncational bureau remaintr ndlsturbed until such State shall have made suitable provisions for the edueatien of freedmea. Section third provides that unexpended bal anoes shall be applied at the discretion of the commissioner to educational purposes, subject to the provisions of the law applicable thereto. Section four authorizes the commissioner of the freedmen's bureau to retain in the bureau, when. ever their services are required. officers. medical men, etc., who have been or may be mustered out of the military service, with the same pay, com per sation and allowances that they previously re ceived. The Supreme Court had before it the case of Johb K. Elgee, aluministratrix. plaintifi in error, ver us Oliver Lovell. Elgee, it appears, was a member of the Louisiana seoession a iven tion. In 1't4 about 400 bales of cotton belonging to him was seizeo in Mississippi by an agent of the treasury department, a abandoned property, and transferred to Mr. Lovell, also a treasury agent, and under the provisions of the law removed to a State not in insurrection. Suit was brought in a Missouri court to recover the property. home time after the commencement of legal proceed ings, Elgee availed himself of the amnesty procla mation of the president, by which he claimed he was restored to all his rights of property, and among others his right to the cotton. Distin guiehed counsel are employed on both sides of the question, Attorney General Stanbery appearing for the United States, in company with Messrs. Hughes and Drake, who were retained by the secretary of the treasury. The Tribune opens an editorial on Congress as follows: " The House and Senate are doing nobly. Ibe restoration of Mr. Stanton was plucky, and, at the same time, prudent. The passage of thq bill in reference to the Supreme Court was timely. Now let the reconstruction bill go through, and we shall have an end of this Hancock busi ness, wish Sheridan back in New Orleans and Sic) lee in Charleston." It adds: " This is no time to split hairs or chop logic, or dawdle over the mere technicalities of precedent. The work must be dote. We most reconstruct the South in spite of the president. We must override him, and if he persists in this fatal and deplorable course, he must be swept away as an impediment to recon struction." A paper has been circulated in Congress signed "by many Republican senators and congresemen, urging Stanton not to resign. There is no proba. bilit3 of his immediate resignation and nothing has been letermined ,y the president relative to Stanton. It was mentioned in the cabinet to day, but not formally discussed. The president did not receive the certified copy on which Stanton and Grant acted until ! o'cl)ck this morning, and at half past 10 Grant formally resigned his office to Stanton, and at half-past Ii the president received a note from Grant quoting the Senate resolution, adding that under the ten ure of office bill Grant considered himself no longer secretary of war ad interiLm. bhe president asserts that Grant repeatedly as sured him that he (Grant) would take no action without informing the president, but would leave the war department as At was whes Grant assumed the secretaryship, namely, vacant. The president accurcs Grant of bad faith. At this hour nothing has been decided on by the president. 'WAsliiGToo,, Jan. 13.-This morning's Inielli gerner Pays: " It t nunderstood that within a Jew hcure after the reception of the dis patch announcing tl:e removal by General Meade of (;Governor Jenkins, of Georgia, on account of his relusal to sanction the payment of the G;ergia negrro convention out of the State fonds, Gen. Grant expressed the opinion that tGen. Meade had acted hastily and should not have removed Gov. Jenkins, and that the convention had no righ.t to be paid out of the State treasury." b he Connecticut Republican convention noni nated Marshall for governor. There was a ten hours extra cabinet session to day. drant and Sherman had a long interview with the president. It is officially denied that Stanton drew salary during suspension. Ilo,,re.-The commlttey on public lands reported adversely on the bill giving public lands to negroes a ider the home stead A bill amending the homestead law, allowlag settlers to make the necessary affidavits before clerks of county courts, was passed. A bill providing for the coinage of five cent nickels at New Orleans was referred. The discussion of the reconstruction bill was resumed. Wood, having the floor, characterized tl e bill as a monstrosity, and the most infamous act of all the infamous acts of th!is infamous Con gress. Bingham called Wood to order. Rose snggested that Wood modify his remarks by saying sorcaled infamous Congress. The speaker dehided Wood out of order. Wood refosetl to modify his remarks, and the Houe, by a party ro:e, refused to hear Wood further. D)owes offered a resolution to censure, which pased by a party vote, and Wood approached the bar of the House and wa censured. Discusion was wide. Butler gave notice of an amendment declaring all offices vacant. authoriz ing the conventions to fill them, and making it the duty of district commanders to coafirm and instal appointces of conventions. Adjourned. sntate.-The chair presented a memorial from Mississippt, through the board of registration, setting ior'h the general destitution of the memo rialiats. They say that if something is not done soon the government most provide large burying grounds. Morton presented a petition from four thousand negroes of the D)istrict of Columbia, asking em ployment on public works, stating that they were excluded from com!,etition, and that white men refused to work with them. A joint resolution irovidlng for the payment of $20o.o0 to Rpain for the steamer seised by Gen. oberman, at l'ort Royal, ptassed. Iiir .ne my.....s- Lu' ws ana pssed. with verbal ameadment -,o- t a Amenrdment forbidding expansion failed. Adjourned. Ti.t president has taken no steps in the Stanton matter. No business done at the war department during the puat two days. FROM ATLANTA. h e eomstrnttlun Ceaveuttel--lipogrtaat Orders e aemseei by Gem. Meaoe. ATLrarT, Jan. 15.-The preamble to the new constitaltion and two sectionsof the bill of rights, were adopted in conveation to-day. The Bfiret section is that protection to person and property is the paramount duty of the governmenat, and shall be impartial and complete. A substitute to the pending section was ofered to give all citizens equal civil and political rights and publio privileges, sad will be acted on to merrow. I he resolutlo adopted yesterday that thbe legis ,stion of the General Asemhly regarding State indebtedness aoshould mot be interfered with was reonsidered. An amendment wss offered that all beonds issuetd and indebtedness incurred slace 1865 ashould he recoained and pid in good faith, and tke the whbole matter was amety tabled. A resolution was a4opted requesting Generel Meade to order the Stale treasurer to pay the foancial rgent of the convention a sasfeleat som te defray all iW expense; also reqoatisg the general to order an examiation of all al. and to release ell penou s nlawfuly confined therei.

The leeeaotruetlea (Cevematle-A labeas IcIiuornD, Jan. 15.-In the reconstruction con vention charges were preferred by conservative members against President Uaderwoed-that he had cut of debate and refused an appeal from his decision. Yesterday, when resolutihds of invitation to Butler were offered, the convention refused to re ceive them by 44 to 39. It appears from the jour. nal that the motion to reconsider the Butler inlvi. tatlon bhad been withdrawn before he entered the hall. The conservatives denied this, and a motion to amend the journal to that effect was lost. The second article of the Constitutlon being amended so as to prohbit Jose of tes =P toe be also members of the lgstladre, was idpted. A resolution of thanks to the Senate for rein stating Stanton, was offered by a colored mem. ber-tabled. Adjourned. In the Supreme Court of Appals, to day, the habeas corpus case of apardoned convict, whose reit ase was refused by the superinrtendent of the State prison, on the ground that Pierpont had no power to pardon ; his term of office as governor having expired January first. The court unani rnously decided that Pierpont held over until his successor was qualified, and the convict was released. FROM JACKSON. The Xtealselppt leeonmtruetle t (oeventteu. J i eon, Jan. 15--Cotsvention.-Mr. Field ciffered the following: "*'WisAo, Much protracted debate and loss of time results from the diversity of opinion relative to the character of our government and its funda mental laws., it is desirable that the sense of the convention be taken on such questions, the settle. ment of which by its vote may arrest this evil; therefore, '"Resolred. That according to the prinoiples, laws and Constitutions of our State and national governments, all legislative acts paased acoording to constitutional forms are binding and valid as constitutional law, which all individuals, corpora tions and officers are bound to obey from the time of their enactment until rendered void sad non effective by judicial decisions that they are uncon* stitutional." This resolution elicited a protracted debate and was adopted by ,2 to 14. lThe convention of the Constitutional Union party cf AlissiJippi met here to-day. Twenty. live counties were represented. Among the dele gates are some of the most prominent politicians of the btate, of all former shades of political opin:on, now opposing radicalism. Amos 1t. JoLnson, an old line Whig, is president. The majority retort of the committee on resolutions favors subscribing to the principles and assunming the name of the National l)emocratic party. A substitute was ftlered which proposes to sub scribe to the principles of Democracy but retain the tan e of Constitutional Union party. Pend. ing deCisia n the convention adjourned to meet again to-night. The Mississippi press convention meets here to morrow. FROM CHARLESTON. The Denth Canollam Reeoastruetles Coavea. tiea-Relief for the Destitfte. ('nHALESTON, Jan. 15.-The reconstruction c on vention to-day perfected permanent organization by the election of Dr. A. G. Mackey president, and Carlos J. Stallbrand secretary-both white men. Assistant secretary, engrossing clerk, door keeper, eergeant-at-arms and messengers are all colored. F. A. Sawyer, of Charleston, Collector of in ternal revenuue, resigned his seat as a deletrate. The reason assigned is the pressure of ofticial duties, which would prevent his attendance in con vention. lRecess until 8 o'clock to-night. ;en. Scott, commissioner of the freedmen's bureau, issues a circular letter to-morrow, an ncunciug that the government has again devolved upon him the duty of distributing food among the destitute people of this State, for the double pur pose of relieving suffering and preventing a recur rtnce of like destitution. Relief will be granted to the lull extent allowed by the government, but only to the extremely destitute and those who are a!tout to plant a sufficient area in cereals to Insure their Irovisions for next year, and who have reav sonable prospects of being able to repay the gor errment the cost of the provisions advanced. No assistance will be given to parties engaged wholly or to an undue extent in the cultivation of cotton. FROM RALEIGE. The North Caroluina eeoastraetlen Con. ventles.

The tax collte t re have already turned into the State treasury thirty dollars collected by them of the assessment made to pay the convention, yet the convention is so impatient, in pocket, they must, forsooth, send a committee to Gen. Han. cock. who, they ought to know, has repeatedly said the civil law is supreme, and If anybody owes anybody anything, anybody has the right to sue any body, and the convention, like any other body, can sue and . The proceedings of the Mechanics' Institute ccnvention yesterday, embodying the report of a special committee appointed to wait asg Gen. Hancock and ascertain his views of the conven tion's financial situation, will be found elsewhere, and are worthy of notice. Two lades who. during the performanee of " Rip Van Winkle," got to chatting very busily together, had the musfortune to find when the confab was concluded that the ornamental fowers in their respective hats had become to closely intertwined during the conversation that to sepa rate was for the time next to impossible. The contretemps, so embarrassing to the fair ones, was excessively amusing to those who wit nessed it. The temperature, yesterday, as shown by the thermometer at C. Dahamel 's, corner Bienvillq and Cha-tree streets. was as follows: At 6 A. M., 54 degrees; at 12 M., 53; at 3 P. x., 52; at 6 ". u., 5(M. There was a lively set-td yesterday on Car ondelet street, near the corner of Common, be tween two well known gentlemen of this clty. b he result will probably be pimsol (or swords) and ctflee for two. The towboat Ike Hamitt arrived at our levee yesterday from Dubuque, Iowa, with a large tow of burges and a new floating elevator, be longing to C. II. Merry, Req., who also has in the same tow a barge containing over 14,000 bushels bulk wheat. Exhibitors at the Fair Grounds, had better not give newspaper reporters samples of inferior ar ticles. They speak badly against the former. The public school teachers will probably be paid on Saturday. A flag of the pavement in front of the store of Col. B. N.

Ta n a I am Ivaerteavner o uanuur..,.hi committee held another mseeson ltal evening, Mr. Joubert in the chair, and the following members present : Mesars. Sterry, Beight, May ne Usuebe. The testimony for the defbme weelro menced: Mr. lrocdilow sworn-I scre tary. of the streets and iandings ommittee; keeps a record of the certificates of the comemlee. Witness roduces book and find that the ertioate of P. arquez for 3174 96 was approved on the mf August, 186?. When suob onrtifloates are ap proved they are seat to the fnane commlttoe; ometimes to the office of the street oemmtsIoeer; snetiemes they are takes to the latractorn themselves. Witness cannot say what became of the certificate above mentioned. Wit se has nos recollectien of over giving this certilcate to Marques or Correjolles. Does not know Correjolles only by name. The oertle cafes when given showed conoluaively that th wetk was done; they are generally senat to the finance committee; witnes does not remember to whom he sent the cert9Wete; it should, aceerg to the routine of business, have gene to the finance committee, but he reiterates that he ea not say where it wenoot. S"oss examined-Questfon by Judge (bOses- I see that the ten per oest certificate for the Piut and Fourth Districts Is entered asapprovedon the 16th of Augost; I see the ame certificate i the name of Frank Marqoues, amounting to 8$2,799 9,6. again approved on the 20th September. In the first entry it is approved as belonging ,to MoCal loch. Can you explain why this double approval was required? Anvwer-Witness should judge that they were two dierent certificates; by referring to the cero tificaes would be able to answer the question. Witners has never kept accountofcertlfioates. As far as the signing wa concerned, they sometimes came to his office before being signed by the street commissioner. Witness is required to furnish the secretary of the finance committee with a list of all items wherein Mr. Marques's neane appears on his books since July last. Major Carr sworn-Be is secretary of the finance committee; has charge of the boots and records. Contractors' certificates have to be ap* proved by the finance committee before they are paid. He has the book now. Being asked to refer to the ten per cent. certificate for repairs, he ays that it was approved on the 2d of Sep. tember, 1867, for $3174 96. When a certificate I approved by the finance committee, as a general thing witness takes it himself to the controller's ofice, except, however, when a party Is in a hutry and desires to take it over himself. Wit ness never turned over to the street commasioner approved envtieates exeept es one eeeaion, which he considers was an error. The fiance committee never approves a certilcate unless signed by the street commissioner, that is when it relates to his business. The secretary of the streets sad landlngs committee generally brings up oertificates from the street commissioner's de partment Witness does not remember a single case where a certificate bame direct from the street commissioner's department to the faaoon committee. Cross-examined-Wltness has no recollection of habst be did with the eertioate of Marques. Does not know whether he gave it to Marques or Corretolles. He genealsly takes the certicaltes to the controller himself. It clhaf--When it goes to the controller It goes there for warrant on the treasurer. Witnees is re quested to fornih the committee with a copy of all entries since the first of July last, wherein the name of Marquez appears. Mr. Jos. P. Hornor offers in evidence original certifi8cte of the ten per cent. paid to Marques, and the receipt of Mr. Louney for $12 0O paid by Dodard.
