Letter from tb» Federal Capital. Proqre** of Conrrcssional business—Sena tor Hicks—iy negro in the Capitol—gen eral Tilisotr—Items. Washington, Feb. 16. J8(*). To the setitor of the Press: The near approrch of tbe 4i.h of March, ia making itself felt very sensibly. Congress is at length beginning to hurry up the legislative cakes. We are h iving shorter speeches and more frequent votes—less oratory and more business. Nor is it any too soon, for even the ordinary and indispensable business of the session is still in a very incomplete state. Of the regular appropriation bills, three, the Con sular and Diplomatic, tin Pension, and the Post Office have become laws. Of the others, the Army, Nava!, Military Academy,and For tification Bills have passed the House but have not gone through the Senate, or they hang by amendments between the two Houses. The Diflciency Bill, over which the House and the Senate joiued sometime ago lug dead lock, the former refusing to pass it without, and tie lat ter refusing to pass it with the ‘‘extra compen sation” clause, has been added by the Senate as an amendment to the Executive, Legislative and Judiciary Appropriation Bill, with tbe of fensive clause stricken out, and so passed. What the House will do with it romuius to be seen. The Indian Appropriation Bill has not yet passed the Branch in which it originated. When wo pass from the ordinary and indis peasible business of Congress to such schemes as the ship cauai around Niagra Falls, the ship canal from Like Michigan to the Missis sippi river, the line of ocean mail steamers from this country to China, and a hundred or less propositions to build private railroads at public expense, we are able, without any great sagacity to see that their cbauce of receiving the sanction of the present Congress at least is very small. A strong effort will he made to bring up the Bankrupt Bill, but its chance of a passage is very Binali. The lobby influence designed to operate in its favor Is thought to have done it little good. The sudden death of Senator Hicks, of Maryland, is sincerely and deeply lamented. He was a native of the State for which he sat in Congress, was Governor of it from 1858 to 1862, was elected to tbe U. S. Senate in place of Hou, J. A. Pierce, deceased, taking his seat during the third session of the Thirty-Seventh Congress, and was re-eleeted for the term closing 1867. He has never taken a very con spicuous place in the Senate, making few speeches but giving many good vote3, and al ways displaying that true and steadfast spirit to which we owe it in no small degree that Congress is now sitting in Washington, and that Maryland, instead of being wliat Virginia is, stands to-day, clothed in the white vest ments of freedom firmly by the flag of stripes aud stars. The funeral took place in the Senate Cham ber ob the afternoon of Wednesday, the 15th inst. The Senate met.as usnal, tlm death was announced by Senator Johnson, and eulogies were delivered by Senators Halo had Willey. About two o’clock, P. M., the members oi the House of Representatives entered the Senate tmamoer, which had been fitted up for their reception, and soou after the body of the de ceased, embalmed aud placed in a rich burial case, was brought in. The funeral services were conduced by Kev. Dr. Nadal, Pastor of Wesley Chapel, assisted by Kevs. Dr*. Mc Curdy and Bowman. The Knights Templar escorted the body to the Congressioual bury ing ground, and many Senators, Members of the House, aud other distinguished men joined in the possession. The services were partici pated in by the President, Secretary Seward, the Judges of the Supreme Com t aud many other officers of the Government. The fu neral sermon was preached from the thirty eigth verse of the third chapter of second Samuel: ‘'And the King said unto his ser vantSy know ye not that there is a prince and a great man fallen this day in Israel?” The signs daily multiply that the American people, so long and so profoundly insensible to the claims of a despised and oppressed race upon their humanity and sense of right, are preparing to do them full justice. An inci dent only less remarkable and unprecedented than the admission of a colored lawyer to the bar of the Supreme Court, was the preaching of a colored minister, Rev. Honry H. Garnet, in the Hail of Representatives ta t Sunday, by invitation of the Chaplain ol the House. Dr. Channing. When it is remembered that in years past, colored persons have been for bidden to enter the Capitol, or even to enter the ground around it, except as servants to white people, this circumstance is not a little significant. Among the many brave and able officers who have been given to the country by our own State, during the present war, Brig tdier Geu eral Tiw.socr, formerly of Rockland, who en tered the B^yyice a9 commander of the 2d Maine B-^tvery; aaiy whr, ilas risen to his pres ent Prjeitioa by faiturul service, deserves hon or Able mention. That he is able,and disposed as Provost Marshal General of East Tenues sea, to drawn the reins with firm aud steady hand, appears from his recent order respect lag the “Amnesty Oath. ’ ‘ It will not do,” he says of those who tike [t,“lhat they are will ing merely to submit. They must go further than that. Their repentance must be such as needs not to be repented of, and they must be hot only willing but anxious to identify them selves with those who are striving to restore peace and establish the national authority.' That his administration is not only iirra but equable is indicated by his order prohibiting the confinement of any person without a written statement of the facts upon which lie has been arrested signed by some ic possible person, with the name or names of one or more witnesses by whom they can bs estab lished. Parson Brownlow, who will hardly be sus pected of llattcry, ia his “ ICuox vi Ho Whig and Rebel Ventillator,” thus speaks editorially of General Tillson: “Thank God we hart men in command here now, who will uot bow the knee to rebels because they have property or because paid Union men come forwarifto in dorse their loyalty. They will lake care ot the interests of the government, and deal out even handed justice regardless of wealth or poverty, or even of the color of a man’s skin. As a matter of course they will soon prove to be unacceptable to traitors—the best evidence I that can be afforded of their real merits.” The visit of the Lieutenant General to the ' Capitol on Saturday last, produced quite a sensation, and attracted a considerable crowd. The general went upon the floor of the Sen ate, and even consented to stand for a few min utes upon the platform'near the Vice Presi dent’s chair, thus giving all an apportuaity to See him. It is evideut however that he is a very small man at the “show business.” We have plenty of lumors and an abund ance of gossip, about the new Cabinet, but be yond the fact that the Treasury lias been of fered to Senator Morgan, very little is as yet cer'ainiy known.

The debate in the House yesterday, was principally on disfranchising the skedadlers frotn the draft. Tiie proposition, as I stated a Pew days since, was to change the Constitution 30 that these fellows could be reached,—and the question was on passing the resolves sub mit tic" the Constitutional amendment to the people? The.debate was of the most lively description-opening up the motives oi these runaways, and the difficulty of iastening dis loyal reasons upon men hereafter, Who shall ap" ( pear at tho polls and claim the right to vote.— ' piic debate was not strictly political. Messis Stevens of Augusta, and Cram of Brunswick, took ground against the passage of the re solves. But the feeling against this mean way of weakening the country, was so intense, that there was no holding in oi the members on the matter. Mr. Weston, of Gorham, made a strong speech in favor of the measure. It was the speech on that side. A two-thirds vote was required to put the resolves through— and it was thought it could hardly be obtained. But, when the names were called, and the re sponse of yes, rolled u^so o ften, it waa soon seen that the people must pass upon the ques tion whether a man who would not defend his country by taking his chance to fight should vote. The resolves were passed—88 to 34. Tiie various petitions for increase of salary of public officers from all parts of the State, were allowed to be withdrawn yesterday. The last tussle this session, on that subject, was probably had on that day, on the salaries of Juige and Register in Kennebec. After de bate, there was hardly a baker’s dozeu voted tor it. The aftsruoou session commenced yester diy. The subject of tho third rail between Portland and Boston, was the order for the occasion, and was on substituting the minority report for the majority. The minority recoin meud the repeal of the section prohibiting a mixed gauge. Mr. Williams, of Augusta, oue of the Committee, gave his reasons for signing the report. Mr. Mi'ler of Portland, replied aud opposed the motion, advocating the adop tion of the majority report. Mr. Crosby of Dexter, took tho other ground —and Mr. Tapley of Saco, followed in favor of the majority. Mr. T. continued his remarks up to the hour oi' adjournment—which it was attempted to st ive off, in order probably to close the debate at that time. But a test vote, shew 54 in tavor of adjourning to 48 against. So the matter lies over till to-day. The zeal of the eastern part of tiie State,— especially Bangor and vicinity,—on this sub ject, is patent to ail eyes. Her leading men are here, and undoubtedly are at work in tho matter. The interests of Portland, aDd the western part of the State, are to be sacrificed —as her Bhrewdest men believe, by this sub servient policy. It is thought to be an object worth laboring for. But while the able men of tiie east think it worth their while to put their shoulders to this work—the business men of the west, do not seem to think it necessary to use a proper and legitimate influence to prevent this disaster. I do not see any of those familiar forms here, which are wont to have their proper weight, when exercised in behalf of tho right. AFby it is so, I cannot divine. Before this article is published, the question may be voted on. If it be not lost, tp your city and vicinity, it will not be for want of outside influence from the east,—or from any extra help it it now receiving from Portland or other parts of the State. Pelham. Perfection of an Artificial Limb. Mr. Editor:—I noticed in the Providence Journal ol the O.h lust., an article, copied from the Boston Traveller, decidedly compli mentary to Palmer & Co.’s Artificial Limb manufactory. The writer states “that he has used others, but decides that the one he is now using is far superior to any heretofore tested.” He bays the ieg is in good working trim al I hough the socket is a little too large.” We have an officer in this city, who is daily moving around among us, whose statement, in regard to the perfection to which Palmer it Co. have arrived, in connection with his own practical ingenuity, knocks the article above referred to “higher than a kite.” But few, if any, would suppose that Capt. Walcott, U. S. A., is travelling around upon a wooden leg.— His artificial limb is not only in good working trim but is in good dancing and skating trim. He iuforms me that he has skated two hours und a half, and danced sis figures on the even ing of the same day. Much credit is due the (Captain for his perseverance in procuring the perfect character of the leg of wood, upon which he skips. For the benefit of the writer of the aiticle alluded to, who says he is not able to procure a ipsvv one, and for others, who, on account of this cruel rebellion are obliged to resort to the artificial, allow me to state from the Captain’s own lips, the course he pursued to do away with the imperfections which at first developed themselves. Ho says: “wherever the limb is Dressed suf ficiently hard to cause a blister, slick a wafer —place the limb in the socket,—leaving the wafer on the inside, and with a half round chisel and sand-paper, work the portion of the artificial, which causod the blister, out, un til it is fitted complete. Dress the limb with silk. Cover this dress ing with buckskin as thick .is it will bear with-* ■out stopping the circulation, wetting the buck skin the first time it is worn. Cover the buck skin witli silk and you may wear the limb with perfect ease.” aiiow me, Mr. ivtitor, to allude more par ticularly to Capt. Walcott. He is one of those brave officers who has contributed much to wards the brilliant victories our aimy have achieved up to, and including Gettysburg, where he was severely wounded. He lias been obliged to submit to three amputations, and lived through the whole of it by his owu will and determination. Ho icoulil not die, al though unuy of his surgeons decided he must. The Capt. has recently been placed upon the ret:red list in the first class of which Gen. .Scott stauds at the head, with pay proper and rations, attir a very close examination, which of itself, iudicates how he is regarded by the Department. Ho will probably soon lie as signed to some light duty, and will be obliged to leave his numerous friends in this city.— May the blessing of Heaven rest upon the of ficers and men who have so nobly defended the supremacy of onr Government. J. M. Funeral of Lieut. Gerrish. Theae services took place yesterday after noon at the New Jerusalem Church. Beauti ful, interesting and impressive, are the Swe denborgian ceremonies at a funeral. The cot fin was decorated with flowers and placed in front of the pulpit. Thu corpse looked quite natural, and many took a last look of the pleasant face. Services commenced with the reading ot the scriptures, followed by a chant Iroin the choir, which was well rendered.— The pastor then made some very solemn and interesting remarks, in which lie alluded to the peculiar doctrines of the church, and dUcusted briefly what it is to live, what to die, and what to be judged. When the body ceases to minis ter tj the wants of the spirit, the latter sleeps,or is in an unconscious state a short time never exceeding three solar days. Itthen Lwakes and finds itself among angels and friends. This is the resurrection spoken of in the scriptures, and theie is uo other. There is no general resurrection, but every spirit is awakened lu the other world, and such a resurrection comes to all soon after their spirits are separated from the material organisms that ministered to them here. After a longer or shorter time, the spirit then passes to an other state, and there it is tested aud judged. And this is the ouly judgment. And then the spirit passes to the third state, marches on and engages in every good work, and ministers to the happiness of others, while it is ministered to. Such is the state of those whose predom inate chai aclers are good and true. Wicked spirit seek company congenial to them, and instead of ministering to each others happi ness, they often torment each other. But our space warns us to stop the discussion of these meatphysieal questions. The pastor spoke of the character of the de ceased in terms of praise. His remaiks were touching, and drew tears from many eyes.— Young Gerrish was an excellent person, and lived up to the doctrines taught him in early life. He laid his life on the altar of his coun try, and he sleeps well after life’s fitful fever. BY TELEGRAPH -TO THE PAPERS. From Sow Orleans. Nfw Orleans, Feb. 10, via Cairo, 17th.

It is from these Glands that every hair ofthe head is formed and secreted. As long as the sorJp i* tree from disease those bodies also remain healthy, and the hair keeps its natural appearance and color But when humors and other diseases af faot the scalp these glands become involved in the same disease, and the hair gradually turns gray, dry and brittle. Sooner or later the hair begins to lull off, and in many cases, if not arrested, will produce complete baldness. To remedy this pathological condition of the glands, and create a new and healthy action, the Physiological Hair Regenerator has proved a per fect success. It is not a ” Dye,” and will not stain a particle. It will positively ‘‘RasToan Gkay UAm'Mn all cases toiti original color.

It keeps the hair soft, moist and perfectly healty.and gives it a glossy and beautiful appearance. It is highly perfumed,and as a dressing it lias no superi or.
