The joint resolutkm relieving the China Mail Steamship Co., was amefded so that the , company shall establish a monthly line of steamers between San Francisco and the Sandwich Islands, with a subsidy therefor of $50,000 per annum, that the company shall I contract with the Post Office Department, to make one additional trip toCWna and Japan, and twelve annual trips to Hgpolulu, and that the schedule time for each voyage shall be re duced not less than ten day*. Thus amend ed, the bill passed. , ., The conference committed on the Legisla tive appropriation bill mad# a report which was agreed to. The only change Is that it prescribes the mode by wbl0» the Secrutary of the Treasury shall disburse the |$150,000 compensation among the cWfks of his Depart ment. The Northern Pacific Railroad bill was ta ken up and recommitted bu^the Pacific Rail road Committee. I The Senate then went iffio executive ses sion, after which it took a recess until seven o’clock. EVENING SESSION. A number of private clatn bills were con sidered and passed, among i> there the bill to pav Mrs. Amelia Puester of Columbia, S. C., $10,000, for food and clothing famished to Union soldiers and rfficere' while in prison at that place during the war,and a bill to pay the contractors lor the irok dome of the Cap itol $2,000. Adjourned. [ house. The House resumed tie consideration of the Rousseau-Griimell aiair, Mr, Raymond having the floor. Mr. Raymond excused the assault and ottered a resolution declaring Mr. Rousseau deserved a reprimand. Messrs. Boyer and Johnson followed Mr. Raymond, defending Gent Rousseau. Mr. Raymond modifies his resolution to read that “ Mr. Rousseau be and he is hereby reprimanded.” jxli* oievens uHjauieu pis aiueuumcut mauc on Saturday, so that thofthree resolutions ot the majority be strickenjout, and the minori ty resolution substitute!. Mr. Garfield supporte l the majority report. Mr. Alley, as a quest >n of privilege, offer ed a resolution that (he Sergeant-ab-arms take into custody Edw#d Powers and 15. B. Beveridge for assaulting the clerk of the Post office Committee, and Mold them until further order of the House; also, that the matter be referred to a special]committee of five.— Adopted. The conference committee on the Legisla tive appropriation bill made a report which was agreed to. The debate on the Bousseau-Grinnell affair was closed by Mr. Banks, who declared that the decision of the Speaker on the point of order raised by Mr. Wilson, of Iowa, bad been as clearly stated anti was as perfectly just as any decision ever tuple in a parliamentary body." Any other conclusion than tliat would havs assailed the records of the House and de graded the parliameipary law of the country; and yet the gentleman from Pennsylvania (Mr. (Stevens) treated that decision as if it had not been mule. Wli' did he do this wrong to the House ?

If the House (lad not been asked to pass judgment on the gentlemen-Mona Kentucky, including all consideration on the part of the gentleman from Iowa In producing that assault it would have been a flagrant act of injury it would be a most fatal precedent of the act of the gen tleman from Kentucky, was permitted to go unpimished, and yet the Ajax of the House, who should be its leader, came in with a proposition which would jdstify the assault made on the member from Iowa, that mem ber had been heated with stripes in the pres ence of the House lor words spoken in debate what should be the conclusion?

The French steamer Periere, frem Brest, 7th inst, arrived this forenoon, with one day’s la ter news from Ei rope. It will be remembered that on the 6th it was reported that Austria had tendered Ve netia to France, and that Louis Napoleon, in the interest ot peace, had requested an armis tice; but the news by the Periere states that Prussia and Italy had refused an armistice, and that the Italians had crorsed the river Po. The Austrians have entirely evacuated Lombardy and retired across the Mincio. Paris papers of the 7th state that the Augs burg Gazette says Benedek has demanded 30, 000 reinforcements. The same paper says theie is a report that the Archduke Albert has been appointed to supersede Benedek. The fortifications of Vienna were being in creased, and 600 guns are now in position. A Prussian army, debouching from Electo ral Hesse, has entered Bavaria. A fight occurred at Weissingen on the 4th between a Bavarian corps and a Prussian ar my under Gen. Falkenstein. No particulars. English consols had slightly declined on the 7th. The Derby ministry had been regularly installed in office. A Milan despatch ot the 6th says a corps of the Bavarian army had entered the Austrian Tyrol, and that the Austrians had abandoned all their positions on the right bank of the Mincio. A Florence despatch of the 4th says that public journals declare that if Austrian troops evacuate Venetia to march against the Prus sians, the Italian army will pursue them close ly until a junction is effected between the Ital ian and Prussian armies. Italy will not leave Prussia either in victory or deteat. The cam paign will be resumed and continued until the Austrian monarchy is dismembered. There is a perfect understanding between the Italian Government and the National Hungarian party. Anti-Rent Troubles in Hew York. Albany, N.

Incredible Meanness.—We hear of a creature in this city, which walks on two legs and wears a coat, and resembles a man. In fact the creature owns a shop and bouse, and traffics in a small—very small—way. On the night of the fire his neighbors helped him save hii property, while the whole opposite side of the street burned down. His clerk who hved directly opposite, labored mdefatigably for his employer while his father's house and his own effects were going to ashe3. Until 4 o’clock in the morning they kept the shop wet, and by unremitting efforts saved it and the house in the rear of it. After working all night in an atmosphere of flame and cinders, men are sometimes thirsty. These men we& thirsty, and enquired of the creature whose house and shop they had saved, if he had any water? “Nb.” Any small beer? “No.’’ The clerk, who knew better, went down to the Ice chest, pulled out several bottles of Hindle’s mild beverage, found in the pan a little water, tol erably clean, which had drained from the ice, mingled with it sugar and sliced lemons, and dispensed these cooling drinks to the deserv ing crowd. Next day this extravagant youth on returning to his duties, found charged to him on the books of the concern, four bottles beer, one pound sugar, four lemons. His place is now vacant. Enterprising young men who want a situation may apply at this office for fiirther information. Sportwb Extra. A Strands Visitor. —Between 7 and 8 o'clock Monday morning quite a large whale was discovered going up Bte harbor. Capt Bety. J. Willard being In formed of the fact started In pursuit, and manned his boat, with six men, all provided with whaling implements. The whale passed up under Portland and Railroad bridges to Vaughan's bridge. Then he ran back and forth from Railroad to Vaughan’s bridge for six hours and a half, closely pursued by Capt W and crew. Capt. W. succeeded In harpoon ing him, but after being fast to him for about five minutes the harpoon drew. He then shot a bomb lance through him that exploded some ten yards beyond him. Being doubtless some what astonished at such treatment, the whale started toward Railroad bridge at a rapid rate, and ran so high up oh the Monitor’s ways that he had great difficulty in getting off. The exciting chase was witnessed by some fifteen hundred spectators. Capt. Willard gives it as his opinion that the whale came up on an excursion to view the ruins of Portland, and being disgusted at his reception sought the draw of the bridge at about half past two P. M., and left in a hurry. Permits Granted and Refused.—At a meeting of the Board of Mayor and Aldermen on Monday, the following permits were grant ed to erect wcoden buildings: To George F.

These young men bad but recently refined from the army and commenced business here aud this loss falls heavily on them. Dr. Morsel km by the fire was between five and six thousand dollars; insured for $l3f0 His house was full from cellar to attic, and handsomely furnished. He saved but little and that little was removed to the grave yard where he and others watched their goods until the hre went out for the want of fuel.

As none failed, all of them having stood the test parties wanting safes should make a note of it.* Herring, Parrel ft Sherman, Manufacturer.^ 251 Broadway, New York. Feminine Street Fioht.—Monday even ing two young ladles or the Celtic race, be tween whom an animosity existed, met on Congress near Oak street, and began to we their tongues glibly. They were not very choice or chaste In their language toward each other. From words they proceeded to blows, and a couple of sunshades were pretty quickly used np. Blood was brought on both counte nance., we believe. Finally, as the scene be came interesting, one of the belligerents “cut stick”—that is she tttrned and ran, leaving her opponent mistress of the field. A Deserving Cab*.—Mr. George H. Gill, m member of Hook and Ladder Co. No. 1, was very active with the other members of this company on the night of the 4th. He worked until about 11 o’etoek, when he was informed that his own house on Anderson street was in danger, and went home to find his house in flames, and no time to save any thing from it. His loss was between five and six hundred dollars, upon which he had no insurance. If this is not a case deserving of consideration we know not where to find one. To Come Down.—A committee consisting of three architects and builders, by order of Government, came to this city Monday, and inspected the Post Office and Custom building, which barely escaped destruction at I the late fire. Their unanimous opinion was, ! that the building must be taken down; that it might and probably would sUnd safe during the warm season, but when the cold and froste came It would be unsafe. Christian Mirror.—The Mirror was pub lished yesterday, having been got out at the office of the Oxford Democrat. It contains the sermon preached by Rev. George L. Walker at State Street Church on the Sabbath suc ceeding the fire. City subscribers win find their papers at the Post Office. We hope to see our quondam neighbor soon established in good quarters In the city.. ■NiiiHH'N urcrr*. Mr. Editor:—It is said that we are to lose Captain Inman just when we most need his help, and wheu his uncommon business quali ties, activity and resources are so much re quired for the comfort and safety of our house less and homeless population. May we not hope that the order may be countermanded when all the facts are known, and our terrible calamity is taken into consideration. Chfwa Tea Store.—'^haw has opened his tea store under the old City Hall, at Kendall & Whitney's. tf_ r See advertisement of “Candy Maker want ed” under the head ol “Wants.” —We are indebted to Bro. Butler of the Bid • deford Journal for muoh, snd not least for this kind hint, in the last number of his paper, to the patrons of the Portland newspapers. “ It is an aot of charity and justioe," he says, “ that every person in arrears should immediately for ward the amount due to the Several offices, and we hope their subsoribers will not only see to tbst, but also forward ndvaaoe pay.”
