THE importance of an inquiry into the causes and correct information as 10 tne curability of Con sumption, cannot be overestimated, especially when we consider the very general prevalence of tills dis ease, and the amount of piortulity it occasions. There is no country in the known world where Consump tion and its kindred affections, immediately connect cd|witli the thoracic^orgaus—laryngitis, inllammati <n and ulceration of the mucous follicles of the throat, bronchitis, &c.,—are so common as in the United States. More than sixty thousand die annually by this Bcourgc alone. More hearts.are caused to bleed and the happiness of families blasted by this destroy er, than by any other disease. Besides this, what be comes mere melancholy, Consumption selects the brightest and the best. The profession, as well as the community, have been so strongly impressed with the belief that tho disease *s fatal, that any one who maintained tho opposite opinion, would, until a very short time, liave been looked upon only in the light of a boasting pretender. This idea of fatality has re suiteu in the death of thousands, by an abandonment i^Ujpnely and proper aid; and, at flic name time, this phantom of prejudice or ignorance served as a stumbling block in the way of scientific inquiry into the true pathology ol Consumption, which, by the energetic efforts or tho true physician, lias demon strated the fact that Consumption is as curable as other diseas. s. Remarkable Evidence. . . New York, Jan. 26, 18C6. " Ins certifies that for the past two years 1 have suf feied severely from a severe lung trouble and for the past six months previous to Oct, 15th, 1865. my case was considered as a hopeless case of Consumption. When the lost draff occurred 1 was drafted and re jected in consequence of my severe luug trouble. 1 have been under tho care of several first class phy sicians and am compelled to say 1 received more in jury from tlicir treatment than benefit, and in fact 1 gave up in despair, and fully concluded that there was no help for me, and threw all my medicine out of the window. One of my friends who had a severe chronic difficulty was very promptly cured by Dr. Harvey, and he urged me for an entire week to go and see Dr. H., but my confidence in physicians was wrecked, and 1 would not consent to go. My friend came to me again and took hold of my arm, and said 1 must get into his carriage and go and seo Dr. liar vey; anu to gratify him 1 went, and must say my very first impressions of Dr. Harvey were very favor able and as he, after a thorough examination (much more thorough than 1 had ever been examined before) went on and most fully explained to me how anu where l was afflicted, and to what extent, &e.. &c. He then gave me a full synopsis of his rnouc of treatment, and I found such a wide difference from what my previous physicians’ had been, and knowing that their treatment was injurious, the thought earn© tome that Dr. H. might be right, and as he gave me hope, 1 commenced treatment, and no less strange to mo than to my friends and all who knew me, m ten weeks from the time t hat I commenced I was able to attend to my business, and now, January 25tl., 186b, I am fully enjoying my health. My flesh is rapidly returning, and I can hardly eat enough. I can never repay Dr. H. for his kind care, attention and skill shown me by his successful treatment of my case, and may God grant him a long life as I know he is the invalid’s best friend. WM. KNOLAN, No. 18, Bleeker Street., New York City. Consumption can be Cured. This is to certify that I was taken sick the first of last September, with the brain fever. Af.er a partial recovery, I was taken with the lung fever, which ter minated in Consumption—that 1 was under the treat ment of tw o eminent physicians of this city from the time 1 wAs taken sick until Friday July 8, 1864, and at this time 1 had not spoken a loud word for four weeks previous to July 8th. 1864—and that 1 on that. day commenced treatment with Dr. HARVEY, and that on the tourth day I could converse as freely and plainly as I ever could. Dr. H., who examined my lungs discovered quite a cavity in my right lung.— When I commenced treatment with ’Dr. H.. 1 was very weak, and had night sweats, swelling of the feet and legs, ay 1 raising matter with specks of tubercle in it like crumbs of choese. I am happy to state that I am now as well as I ever was and weigh 144 lbs. I sincerely recommend all who are troubled with Lung diliicuit.es to apply to Dr. Habyey at once, as you will find him a true medical lriend and a gentleman. ANNA G.

Washington, June It. SENATE. Mr. Wilson, from the Military Committee, reported the bill to continue in force the Freed men’s Bureau with amendments. The sec tion confirming the titles to Sea Island lands under Gen. Sherman’s order is stricken out, but in lieu of it there is a proviso by which, under certain circumstances the lands can bo recovered for the former owners. 'Such of the lands as were forfeited for non-payment of taxes are reserved by Government, and are to be distributed among the colored occupants in 16 acre lots. Mr. Trumbuil moved that 60,000 copies of the reconstruction report be printed. Refer red. Mr. Edmunds called up the bill to provide for the safety of the lives of passengers on board steam vessels, and to regulate salaries of steamboat Inspectors. A bill providing for the safe keeping of pub • lie monies entrusted to disbursing officers was reported and passed. It had been previously passed by the House. A bill to* reimburse Massachusetts for war expenses was reported. Leave ot absence was granted to Messrs. Lane of Kansas, and Sumner. The National Telegraph bill was postponed till to-morrow. A bill tor the establishment of an American Repertory in Germany was referred to the Ag ricultural Committee. The joint resolution appropriating $60,000 to#a silo for a National Soldiers’ and Salim's’ Asylum at Point Lookout, was referred to the Military Committee. Several bills were introduced and referred. Messrs. Clark, Chandler, Cowan, Herder son and Johnson were appointed a Committee to examine the Mississippi levee. The'Senate went into executive session and a<lioumed. HOUSE. Mr. Ancona offered the following preamble and resolution: Whereas, the Irish people and then' broth ers and friends in this country are moved by a patriotic purpose to assert their independence and re-establish the nationality, of Ireland, and # Whereas, the active sympathy of the people ot the United States is naturally with all men who struggle to achieve such ends, more especially when those engaged therein are known friends of our Government, as are the people of the Irish race, they having shed their blood in defence of our flag in every battle of every war ia which the Republic has been en gaged, and Whereas, the British Government, against which they are struggling, is entitled to no oth er or greater consideration from us as a nation than that demanded by the strict letter of in ternational law, for the reason that during our late civil war that Government did, ia effect, by its conduct repeal its neutrality laws, and Whereas, when reparation is demanded lor damages to our commerce, resulting from the wilful neglect of Great Britain to endorse the same, she arrodltntiy denies all responsibility, and claims to be judge in her own cause, and Whereas, the existence of the neutrality law oi 1818 compels the Executive Depart ment of this Government to discriminate most harshly against those who have been and are now our friends, in favor of those who have been faithless, not only to the general princi ples of comity which should exist between friendly States, but also to the written law and of their own nation on this subject, therefore, be it ’ Resolved, That the Committee on Foreign Affairs be instructed to report a bill repealing an act approval April 20th, 1818, it being the neutrality law unde" the terms of which the President’s proclamation against the Fenians was issued. Mr. Hale moved to lay the preamble and resolution on the table. Mr. Rogers demanded the yeas and nays. Messrs. Ranl^. Wilson anil other members oungnTTCO oflet siisracsiffms. m™-aj having moved the previous question, refused to accept of the suggestions. He however modified his resolution so as to make it read that “The Committee on Foreign Affairs be instructed to inquire into the expediency of reporting such a bill.” The House refused to lay the resolution on the table by a vote of four yeas, to 113 nays. The yeas were Messrs. Cobb, Davis, Hale and Grinnell. Mir. Grinnell said he voted yea because he understood the resolution to be a reproof to the administration. The House refused to second the demand for the previous question. Mr. Schenck then offered a substitute for the resolution, and demanded the previous question. Mr. Schenck’s substitute is that the Presi dent ought to reconsider the policy adopted by him as between the British Government and Fenians, and requesting him to adopt the same proceeding as was pursued by Great Britain in our late civil war, recognizing both as law ful belligerents, etc. The question was taken on referring the original resolution and Mr. Schenck’s substi tute to the Foreign Committee, and carried, 91 to 34. A resolution was adopted asking informa tion of the President relative to the sending of Austrian troops to Mexico. The joint resolution appropriating $121,000 for Indian treaties was passed. A resolution was adopted admitting soldiers and sailors to the Government Insane Hos pital. An act regulating the appointments and re movals from office, was reported from the Ju diciary Committee, and ordered to be printed. A resolution was adopted, that in the opin ion of this house Jeff. Davis should be held in custody as a prisoner, and subjected to trial according to the laws of the land. The rules wore suspended for this resolution, and the vote on its adoption stood 105 against 19. Several bills and resolutions were introduc ed and referred. The Reconstruction bill providing for the restoration of certain States to political rights, was taken up. Mr. Kelly offered a substitute, providing for the calling of State Conventions to adopt Con stitutions in accordance with the existing state of things. Mr. Rousseau defended the course of the President. Mr. Grinnell, in response to some remarks of Mr. Rousseau, was called to order, apparent ly in season to prevent a row.—Adjourned.

Judge Underwood Refuses to Admit Jeff, Davis to Bail. Remonstrance Against the Cotton Tax. THE NAVAL ACADEMY. Appointment of u Hoard or Examination. Washington, June 11. This forenoon Judge Underwood,in theU' S. Attorney General’s office, heard arguments of O’Conor and Shea, counsel for Jeff Davis, why the prisoner should be admitted to bail. Attorney General Speed replied on tho part of the Government. Judge Underwood refused to admit Davis to bail, on the ground that lie had no authority to do so, the accused being a prisoner of war. Judge Underwood’s decision declining to is sue a writ of habeas corpus lor Jeff. Davis, was reduced to writing and furnished Jeff’s counsel, who took it to President Johnson.— All further action is therefore suspended un til a further order of Government. The pas sage of a resolution by the House, declaring that Jeff, should be kept in confinement, was induced by the apprehension that he would be bailed. Among tho enfirtnations by the Senate to day, was E. H. Willis, as Collector of Cus toms at Plymouth, N. C. Brevet nrig. Gen. A. L. Gurney, formerly of New York, now Selma, Ala., in forwarding re monstrances of Union officers and sailors against the increase of the cotton tax, states that 20 officers and 200 men of liis late regi ment are in Alabama, and at least 5000 North ern emigrants in that State, mostly engaged in the culture of cotton. Assuming that culture cannot prove profitable with the proposed tax, he says Northern men will leave the State if it be imposed, and that the Southern States can never become purged of disloyalty with out the emigration of Northern men. The Board of visitors to the Naval Acade my do not consider it the mission ot the Acad emy to perlect education in literature or theo retical science. Its business i3 to supply the naval service with practical seamen, men who can navigate our ships and fight our guns.— Hence the visitors recommend an inoreased attention to every branch which bears direct ly on the duties of young officers, and advise the discontinuance and mollification of seve ral branches of a less practical character. The pupils should understand the construction of steam machinery, and the method of using and repairing and preserving it. Capt. Melancthan Smith, Brig. Gen. J. W. Alexander and Chief Engineer J. W. Bing, have been appointed a board to examine the proposed location for a tresb water basin lor iron clads at Portland, Me., under the recent resolution of Congress. I- - .. >yiMtgsw w THE FENIANS. War Materials Still Going Forward. Captiire of Twelve Wagon Loads by United States Troops. " r President Robert, says the Movement is Not Abandoned. New Yoke. June 11. The Herald’s Montreal special says in the final fight near the line, only forty of the Governor General’s body guard participated. The Fenians were repulsed over the lines, losing several killed and sixteen captured. A special from Ottawa says three schooners ’ suspiciously crowded with men,---~— ~ 1 wiiim io utc—rm. 5ujmum, Rescue went in pursuit. The Canadian Government has applied to England ior 8,000 additional troops, ineluding a regiment of cavalry and the prop er proportion of artillery. Three arrests were made at Ottawa, and wairants are out for ail Fenians, sixty-eight in number, who are all known. A special from Ogdensburg says the Fenians are still determined to push on the work.— They say that war material is still being sent to the frontier, and that twelve wagon loads have been captured by the U. S. troops. A dispatch asserts that fifteen cases of Spring field rifles and 60,000 rounds of ammunition have passed through Ogdensbuig within forty eight hours. Fenian Koberts stated yesterday that the movement is not abandoned: and reports say some of the leading Fenians have left to re new operations. Itjis pretty hard to see how they can do anything. Dispatches from Albany, Watertown and other railway stations, state that large num bers of Fenians had arrived from tho frontier. Buffalo, N. Y.t June 11. Gen. Barry has received an answer from Gen. Meade regarding the transportation of Fenians now congregated here to a large num ber. Gen. Meade says that the United States does not feel called upon to stand the expense of sending these men home, and does not give the required permission to turnish trans portation. St. Louis, June 11. The Fehian war having ended, Judge Treat dismissed the case of A. L. Morrison, in the District Court, and it is probable that ail the other arrested parties will he discharged. Various Items. New Yobe, June 11. Gen. W. K. Strong is dangerously ill from a paralytic shock. At a meeting of ship carpenters to-day, the President of the Society indicated that a com promise would be effected between employers and workman this week. Judge Undebwood’s Chabge—The charge of Judge Underwood to the grand jury at Richmond was rather pointed, although the press of that city have not mended the matter by then- comments. We take the following extract from it: “I am happy to meet you again and to know that you still live, notwithstanding the assaults that have been made upon you.— Little need be said in addition to the instruc tions given at Norfolk. Your last session has made you historical, and 1 trust the efforts which have been made lo intimidate you and to impede the course of justice will not make you less faithful and earnest in the discharge of your public duties. We ought not to be surprised that the treasonable and licentious press of this State and city should whine and rage and become furious when treason and licentiousness are exposed and arraigned lor trial and punishment. Nor should we be sur prised at the enormity and desperation exhib ited when we remember that this city has long been the centre and seat of the greatest traffic in human beings that has ever disgraced the world. A traffic which has annually em ployed many hundreds of moral monsters, and many millions of capital, subsidizing the press, pulpit, and politics of the State, rendeiing Richmond more infamous among men for its participation in this great crime than all the cities of Senegijmhia, Upjier and Lower Guinea. Congo, Loango, Angola and llengue la combined. The wonder rather is, that so many traces of kindness, humanity and Chris tian civilization should have survived such de basing and brutalizing influences. And let us thank God and take courage that, more for tunate than the devoted cities of antiquity we can count more than ten men who have stood faithful among the faithless. The complaints of threatened violence and intimidation, which have been forwarded to me by several of your number for your late iieroic and patriot ic actions have been submitted to tb» nigliest legal and military authorities of the Govern ment, and I can assure you of the earnest sympathy and firm support cf all the officers of the law, not exci pting the President, whom the treasonable now flatter and fawn upon, but whom they will soon curse as heartily as they did two years ago.” TnE Navy Department announces that ship masters or owners whose chronometers were captured by the Anglo Rebel cruiser Shenan doah, can obtain them by filing certificates of ownership at the office of F.

Chamber lain, for Governor by the Union Convention has been received in all parts of the State, and believing that his brilliant military career, his eminent ability, his purity of life, his integrity ot character, his patriotic devotion to the coun try, his thorough and hearty sympathy with the principles of the Union party, all combine to quality him in an especial degree for this position, and justly entitle him to this recog nition ot his pre-eminent services, therefore, Resolved, t hat our delegates are hereby in structed to use all honorable means to Secure the nomination of Gen. Chamberlain for Gov ernor by the Union Convention. Delegates to the District Convention. Freeport.—S. A. Holbrook, Charles Field, Micah Stockbridge, Dan’l Curtis, Reuben Wy man, Edward Reed. Brunswick.—A. F. Cox, George P. Given, Capt. J. McWinchell, Lyman E Smith, John Crawford, Jordan Snow, S. R. Jackson. Burglars Abroad.—The victualline cel lar of Messrs. Daniel Gill & Son, at the foot of Exchange street, was entered Sunday night, through the kitchen window, by a gang of burglars, who helped themselves, liberally, to the eatables, stole a suit of clothing, belonging to a man residing on one of the islands, which was in the desk, and about ten dollars’ worth of goods. The same gang, as is supposed, next entered the iron shop of Mr. John C. Brooks, on Com mercial street, by means of a side window, and pried open the outer door of the safe, which was an old tashioned Gaylor. The in ner door was closed but not locked, and the handle was off. The rogues did not know that it was unlocked, and thought, probably, that it would be useless to try that, and so left it. The iron store of Messrs. A. E. Stevens & Co. was, also, entered, probably by the same gang, who burst open the back door. Opera tions were tried upon the sate, one of Ker shaw’s patent, by pouring powder into the lock through the key-hole, and then igniting it by means of a fuse and matches. But though the powder exploded, no injury was done to the safe, and they could not get the this store or that of Mr. BfOOKh. lirrne' former, a piece of the fuse and some of the matches were found, also the paper by which they poured the powder into the lock. The party did not make much by their raid on Sunday night. Maine Bible Society.—The annual meet ing of the Bible Society of Maine was held in the Central Church, Sabbath evening last. Dr. Shailer presided, Rev. Mr. Ripley made the prayer, and Rev." Mr. Tuckennan read the Trustees’ report. This report mentioned that a beginning was recently made to canvass the city: five hundred families in the most un promising port of the city were visited—but not one found destitute of the whole or some portion of the Bible 1 The discourse was by Rev. Prof. Scwall of Bowdoin College Its object was to show that Nature is insufficient to prove-a Merciful God—and a Revelation was therefore required. God as manifested in nature is a being of inexorable law—but oie of infinite love, mercy, and Grace through His Son Jesus Christ. A contribution of $58 was taken up in aid of the objects of the So ciety. Fire and Insurance.—One of the largest fires that has occurred in Charlestown, Mass., for many years, took place Saturday, about midnight, destroying a very large amount of property, and driving from their homes, at the dead of night over fifty families. The entire square of buildings included by Main street upon the front, Thorndike street upon the south, Forbush court upon the north, and the bay (the old mill pond) in the rear, was burn" ed to the ground. Among the sufferers by the fire, we note T. Cunningham & Co., manu facturers of piano stools, insured for $1000, Hatch & Hardy, soap manulacturers, insured for $1700, Barney Hall, baker, insured for $400, Edward Consingheu, currier, insured for $1000 —all in the Dirigo Insurance Co. of this city. Card.—Rev. A. H. Tyler, of Norway Vil lage, makes grateful acknowledgment to the ladies of the State Street Sewing Circle, Port land, for a very valuable box of clothing for himself and family. They know the blessed ness of giving. We think we fully appreciate the blessedness of receiving. They will please accept our hearty thanks, with the prayer that God will ever guide and bless them in their efforts to carry joy and gladness to needy homes and anxious hearts. The Nerve op the Pocket is some times as sensitive as the nerve of the tooth The universal demand for the fragrant Sozo dont, in preference to all other dentrifices, is swamping all tooth powders and tooth washes of the. experimental class of Dentists. Hence they denounce it. Mission School.—The Chestnut St. M. E. Church has organized a Mission school at the Franklin street ward room, with an attendance of over $0 pupils. It is called the Allen Mis sion School, in honor of the present pastor of the church.

The company will perform here but three nights, and the old English comedies will constitute the plays. Of late we have had nothing but sensation plays and it will be a pleasure to witness the rendition of these sterling come dies. Attention is invited to the advertisement of Dr. Harvey, of his special mode of treat ment of chronic complaints. He will remain in our city until September. Baptism.—Rev. Mr. Tuckerman, pastor of Preble chapel, baptized; by immersion, six persons, Sunday morning, at the foot of Preble street. Those new goods at Leach, Bartlett & Par ker’s attracted another large crowd yesterday, but they have many good bargains left, and are receiving large additions daily. ITEMS OB’ STATE NEWS. —B. F.

On Friday they learned from a young man in Minot, who was acquaint ed with Miss Greene, that on the 23d ult., while standing on Lisbon street, he saw her enter a Drug Store, and that he then thought it strange that the young lady should be in Lewiston in, apparently, her school dress. Mr. Greene ac cordingly repaired to that city and made in quiries at the Drug Store. The clerk, on re ferring to his sales’ book found this record : “May 23d, Miss Greene, from out of town, 21-2 ounces of corrosive sublimate.” The coinci dence seems topoint almost conclusivelyto pois oning. The dose she purchased was four or five times greater than was required to destroy human life. Restoration—Mr. Howard’s Amendment. [From the Baleigli, N. €., Standard.] It will be recollected that the amendments proposed to the Constitution by the Commit mi ttee on Reconstruction passed the House some days since, and were sent to the Senate for its action. But consultations took place afterward between the majority in Congress, the result was to make some changes in the report pf the committee. Accordingly Mr. Howard, of Michigan, moved certain amend ments in the Senate, which were adopted. It is proposed, first, that ali citizens of the Uni ted States, without regard to color, shall be alike protected in life, liberty and property; secondly, that representation shall be based on population, but that it the right of suffrage shall be denied to colored men they shall not be counted; thirdly, that certain persons shall be excluded from the right to hold office, un less such disability shall be removed by a two thirds vote of Congress; fourthly, that the public debt and bounties and pensions shnll be secured and inviolate; fifthly, that Con gress shall have power to enforce these pro posed amendments. The third section provides that no person shall hold any office under the United States, or under any State, who having served in the Federal Congress, or as an executive or ju dicial officer ot any State Legislature, or as an officer of the United States, and taken an oath as such to support the Constitution of the Unieed States, afterward engaged in the re bellion, giving aid and comfort to the enemies of the United States. Two-thirds of Congress may remove this disability. The question therefore is, whether certain persons shall be excluded from office and the Union shall he restored; or whether, on account of these persons, and because we may not want to ex clude them from office, we are to remain in definitely out of the Union. The people can not hesitate one moment as to their choice in this matter. The chaff is to be separated from the wheat; and if any of the wheat should be about to be blown off with the chaff, Congress will interpose as chief windower, and save every sound grain. It is onr deliberate Opinion that the above terms are the very best the Southern States can obtain. If these terms should be rejectel, heavier and more stringent terms will he en quired. Delay in this matter will he danger ous. It is provided by the Constitution that amendments thereto may be ratified by the legislatures or by conventions of the Stales, “as the one or the other mode ol ratification may be proposed by the Congress.” If conven tions, as well as legislatures, should be allow ed to ratify, our convention now in session, might at once ratify the foregoing amend ments, and thus take the lead in the great work of restoration. The Valparaiso Bombardment—a Claim fob Damages.—A petition is in course of signature by the merchants ot Havre who suffered from the bombardment of Val paraiso. It prays that the Spanish govern ment shall be held responsible for the losses suffered by the subjects of neutral powers dur ing the bombardment of a town almost entire ly inhabited by foreigners, an open, defenceless place, and exclusively commercial. The peti tioners further pray that an international com mission shall be appointed to settle the claims about to be made by French merchants who suffered in their commercial interests at Val paraiso.—Evening Pott. —The late Dr. Seymour was asked if he con sidered tight lacing bad for consumption ? “I'Ot at all; it is what it lives on.” ijctter from the National Capital. Washington, June 8, I8e«. lo the Editor of the Press: The debate in the Senate upon the Consti tutional Amendment has been very desultory, protracted, and latterly very uninteresting.— Long rambling disquisitions, tedious discus sions ot State politics, attacks, not personal in the technical parliamentary sense, yet direct id to some body in particular, and the inevitable reply, followed by rejoinders and answers ad infinitum, autobiographical definitions of posi tion, and other matters, all very edifying no doubt to the speakers, but very irrelevant to the subject in hand, and wholly uninteresting to the country, have been permitted to exter d this debate to a wearisome length. The gen eral subject of reconstruction has been to ful ly and so ably discussed that tew men are now able to throw much new light upon it, and long speeches are mostly a waste of time.— That the desire of the country for a little prompt, vigorous, decisive action is not prop erly appreciated, we have had ample evidence within the last few days. Some friends of the amendment have consumed not a little time as it appears to me very unnecessarily. Mr. Doolittle follows in a reply to his colleague, in which, after claiming that he saved the Union party from defeat in Wisconsin last fall, he in forms us with a surprising display of modesty and good taste, that “if is not the first time in the history of the world that men have turned in to crucify their Savior.” By the way has not Mr. D. some friend good enough to suggest to him the propriety of selecting, when next in want of an illustration of his services and sufferings, some less example than the Savior of the world, the Redeemer of mankind? Then follows Mr. Cowan in his favorite role of constitutional lawyer fairly bombarding the Union side of the Chamber and the party at large with such “solid chunks of wisdom” as could hardly have come safely up the throat of even our old acquaintance Uunsby. Next day Garrett Davis gets the floor, resolves himself into committee of the whole on the state of the Union, and goes off upon a regular ram page. And so the debate has gone on. Still, though the Senate has no ‘•previous question,” we have never ceased to hope, even in the darkest hour, that as most human tilings have an end, this discussion would also. And the end has come. The Senate met this morning with an evident Intention of taking a vote before adjourning. Senator Johnson made a set speech of considerable length against the preceding amendment, and Senators Fessenden and Tates spoke in Its fa vor. About five in the afternoon it was brought to a vote. Only two Senators elected as Unionists were found to signalize their ut ter subserviency to the Executive behest by voting no,—Doolittle and Norton; while the magnificent majority of exactly three to one for the measure must convince every one that the iepresentatives of the people will stand true and firm to the end. The House is ex pected to promptly accept the the Senate amendment, and then it will be for the people to decide this great conflict of opinion among their servants, That they will settle it wisely and well we readily believe and confidently trust. A very pleasant occasion was the opening, on Wednesday evening last, of the fair now being held in this city in aid of the proposed National Home for the orphans of soldiers and sailors who fell in the war. The tempora ry building erected for the fair at the intersec tion of Pennsylvania Avenue and 7th street is quite spacious, being one hundred and fifty two feet long by seventy-five wide, and is ad ripift flPUKMiitittti W [iliii ed-down government barracks, and by the la bors of soldiers detailed for the purpose. The main and central part of the building is beautifully canopied within with large garrison flags, furnished, I suppose, from the govern ment stores here, while the wings on either hand, devoted to the tables, are also hung above or on the sides with the national ensign. The orchestra is surmounted by an arch spanning the breadth of the main building, beautifully decorated with evergreens, and bearing in letters of green upon a white field the inscription, “O ir Country has a tear for the patriot’s grate, and a home for his desolate orphan.” The door of the supper room dis plays the invitation “Come and eat that the hungry may be fed.” The whole interior is profusely decked with evergreens, and adorn ed with tasteful devices too numerous and complicated to be particularly described. The citizens of several States have furnished tables distinctively their own, while those of others united in the preparation of “Independent” tables. Each of the States of Maine, Ver mont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Kentucky have tables which all do credit to the patriot ism and benevolence of their citizens, while the District of Columbia has several well sup plied and tastefully adorned. A new Eng lander may be pardoned for referring to the prominent part taken by his own section of the country in this most patriotic and Chris tian enterprise. The Maine table is next the entrance on the right, is one of the most spacious in the building, and is in every respect worthy of a State, which, having nobly borne its part in fighting through the war to a successful issue, is now willing, and more than willing to do its part in taking caru of helpless ones be queathed by our dying heroes to the nation’s care. The table is under the direction of Mrs. Woodard, Mrs. Col. Talbot, Mrs. Weeks, Mrs. Wbarff, and the Misses Hartley, Bagley, and Cole. It is surmounted in front by an arch trimmed with evergteens, bearing the word Maine, beneath which is displayed the coat of arms of the State, supported on each side by the national flag. It is adorned with flags, including the one carried by President Lin coln on his visit to Richmond a little before his death, wreaths and stars of evergreens, pictures of Washington, Lincoln, Grant, Sher man, Howard, and displays the motto "They stood between us and destruction; their chil dren are our legaeiIn addition to the la dies above mentioned many others have ex erted themselves in preparing and furnishing tlie table, among whom may be mentioned Mrs. Ingersoll and Mrs. Gilbert, and some few contributions have been received flom Maine, including a box from Winterport and another from Bath, and five dollars each from Mrs. L. P. Strout and Miss Sarah L. Strout ot Thomaston, by the hand of Mr. J. C. Strout of the Ordnance Office. The exercises at the’opening of the fan were quite interesting. Hon. B- *'ivnc*1 presided, and introduced S«>ator W ilson, who alter a lew remarks introduced success ively Gen. Banks, lion- Su,uuel Mcl^ec °* Kentucky, Senator L»“e oi Indiana, <^ener'*‘ Howard, and fluVU ‘he President. These gentlemen each made shorl sPeeolloa> except the last named, whose remarks, though we were lbrwarned and repeatedly assured of their brevity, still occupied a very appreciable length of time. Bis Excellency considerately Inlorrmed us as to what had been his usual style of oratory, that he uad seldom indulged in, ‘rounding, sounding, bounding, ad cqptan dnm periods’graciously assured us that he did not intend to bring in politics, a purpo. c to which he was enabled to adhere, notwith standing it seemed a little hard lor him to get on without pitching into the radicals, or in terjccting a bit ot a veto message—eleven States not represented <fcc.;—and finally con cluded with the wish that there might he a church here with a pew for every orphan, and for every loyal man from whatever part of the country iie mlglit come, together with sundry other commendable aspirations. As to the Church mentioned, his Excellency should be well posted in sueh matters, but I cannot avoid a pretty strong impression that there are now church accommodations in Washington for all the reconstructed sojourn ers within our gates, pardon seeking or other wise employed, who may find themselves de voutly disposed on Sundays, and that no new building will have to he put up for them. The annual muuicipaJ election of this city, on Monday the 4th inst., passed oil' as usual, exciting but little interest beyond the politi cians personally interested iri the re.-ult. No apprehensions appeared to exist of a city gov ernment more inefficient and unserviceable than the present, nor doea the hope of a bet ter seem to disturb the quiet of any mind, jmless perhaps it may sometimes present It ^elf in the roseate visions of our oracular pre mier. Considering the fact that the cholera arrived in New Vork harbor seven mouths ago, and is morally certain soon to sweep over the whole country, tiie condition of this city reflects but little credit upon the local author ities. O, for hoe and shovel in the public streets I O, lor the scavenger’s cart in the al leys and hack yards! O for somebody to preacb the evangel of Saint Soap-aud-Water in this dirtiest of capitals, even as Jonah preached repentance and good works to the Ninevites!—all but the forty days’grace, ot which, in truth, we have no assurance. We have been favored of late with the pres ence of Mr. James Stephens, C. O. I. K.

In the first section, it now pro vides that “all persons born or natisralUeeC’ in this country shall bo citizens of the State. In the second, instead of “the elective franchise” we find more definitely “the right to vote” for certain officers. The fourth and fifth sections of the original article are now blended ip a sin gle section, which instead of declaring that the obligations of the United States “shall remain inviolate,” says directly that the validity of tho public debt “shall not be questioned.” The amendment is more compact and forcible for its hammering in the Senate, and goes to tho House iu a very satisfactory form. —The Argus quotes from the New York Sun as “a Republican paper two years ago."
