Mr. Moorehead made a statement in refer ence to the tariff hill. He said that consulta tion with his friends, and especially the Com mittee on Ways and Means this mortiinir, it had been c included that at this late stage of the session it was better uot to antagonize the business before the House, and it was very cer tain the tariff bill, if it passed the House could not passed tho Senate this session. He had consulted within the last two or three days with the members of the Fiuauco Com imttee of the Senate and House, and was sat isfied that even if the House passed the b II tbTh Woull"ot '-ike it up and act upon it iH‘A'13e’..'n Committee of the Whole, con sidered the funding hill. Many amendments were offered, some rejected and others adopted. During the consideration of the hill the com mittee rose and the Speaker presented a mes sage from the President suggesting certain defects in the Constitution of the United btates which appeared to require correction. 1 he first was the clause for the election of I resident and Vice President through the in tervention of the electors of the several States instead of directly by the people. The dangers of a defeat ot the popular choice would be greatly increased. He argued if the House of Representatives should uudertake arbitrarily to reject the votes of a State on the ground that it had not complied with some condition. He therefore felt called upon to revive and urge the recommen dations made by President Jackson on that subject, aud to suggest a form of amend ment to the Constitution. He also suggested a change in the provision for filling a vacancy 6 * residency, t aking the ground that ail officer ot the executive department should he designated rather than an officer of the legis hitive or judicial department. He suggested that the duties of the Presidency would de volve more properly on the head of one of the executive departments. He also recommended a change in the mode of the election of United States Senators; that they should be elected by the people instead of by the Legislatures of the several States; also that the term of Judges of the United States should be limited to a number of years. He suggested that these subjects should receive the attention of Congress and submitted to the people. un motion of Mr. Wilson, of Iowa, tlie mes sage was referred to the Judiciary Committee and ordered to be printed. Tlie House, in committee, again considered the funding bill. Mr. Niblaek offered an amendment to sub ject bonds to Stale and municipal taxation to tlie same extent as money. Rejected— 35 to85. Mr. Crarfield called attention to the fact that it was a strict party vote. Tbe question was then taken on the substi tute offered by Mr. Boutwell, providing for two classes of bonds, one at 5 per cent, for cit izens of the United States, and one at 4 per cent, payable in the United States, or at Lon dou, Frankfort or Paris, and it was rejected— 5o against 65. The committee rose and reporled the bill and amendments to the House. Mr. Schenck moved the . previous question, winch Mr. Boutwell opposed, that lie might offVr his substitute iu the House and have a vote on it by yeas and uays. The House refused to second the previous question. 61 against 73. Mr. Boutwell then offered his substitute, which, with the bill as reported from the com mittee of the whole, was ordered to be printed, the vote to be taken Monday. The evening session was dispensed with. Ad journed. LOUISIANA. DEMOCRATIC RATIFICATION MEETING.

(Official J (Extract of Report of investigating committee.) CITY COUNCIL CHAMBER, I St. Louis, March 3, 1868. f * * * Cement Pipe—In reference to cement pipe your committee are of the opinion that the same is good as now made in this city, when proper ly seasons 1 and properly laid. By reference to the >tateinent« of twenty-six sworn witnesses, it will be seen that the testimony is al most unanimously in favor of cement pips. Mr. John C. Miller, and Mr. Thompson, manufacturer ot stone-pipe, are ilie only witnesses who say they would li xt use cement pipes. Abstract of Testimony. John Wilkinson—< eiuentpipe good. I find the old pipes much harder than the new. Andrew MeBmIe— Brick layer In 8t. Louis twenty years—Cement pipe go d. John C. M llti—Cement pipe not good—stone pipe .rood. Anthony Fox—Cement pipe good. I have no doubt . ot its durability it* properly put In the ground. hobert L. Jones—Lived in St. Louis eighteen years. Use both kinds pipe, stone and cement. Large pipe i. e. above 12 ineho-, I use cement pipe. The cement pij* if laid rigtit is the best in my opin ion. I am sure the on'y cause of tai ure of cement pipe is th»t contractor* do not pcpperly lay them. I have examined cement pipes laid by mvaelf four years ago, twelve feet under the surface, and have lend it as hard as cast iron. * • I have us* d this pipe -even or eight years, and have never found it to tail. 1 saw the men employed by John C. Muller taking up this pipe ou Carroll street. I told the men about a week beiore, when thev were putting the pipe down, that they would all break, because they did not sink down for the flange and iay them on solid ground. There was no tilling on the sides as such work ought *o be done. 1 called i ho attention of Mr. Miller to this tact, and told him it would nor do to use the pipe this way. Frank Backo —Cement pipe good if properly dried and laid. John Stahl—Cement pipe good. Lawrence .*>yle— (foment pipe it properly laid, is good; it it will stand lor six months, it will stand forever. Jas. II. Locke—Cement pipe good; if made and laid wed they will become harder by age. Andrew Nuik—Contractor; build sewers; cement pip® good it properly laid; better than any other. James Creamer—Cement pipe good it properly laid. Jna. C Lawrence—Cement pipe good il properly dried ami laid; is better than any stone pipe. Pcier Farley—Content pine good it properly laid. Win. O’Sbands—' einent pipe might be put down; provided well laid and secured they would stand for ever. H. M. Thompson—Am a stone pipe raanuiacturer; cement pipe not good; stone pipe good. James Garwin—Cement pipe good, but in nearly all cases they have l>een improper! laid. Mr. G. 'aid some 30 .nch pipe througn where there was once a pond, and they did well. 1 find that a cement pipe alter being in the ground awhile, is better than be fore it is put in, R. .1. Howard—Stone pipe, known as ring pipe, should not be used. In regard to acids destroving the lime aud i euient in sewers, I think it is ali a uumbug. Thos. J. Whtm.nn—Cement pipe good; don’t think acids in sewers will afle t cement pipe. Jos. P. Davis—Cement pipe good if well made and properly laid. 'I he cement pipe gives better lines than any other I kn >w ol. All of which is respectmlly submitted. Anthony 1 ttner, M. W. Hot.AN, ('HAS. W GoTTSCHALK. Gko.
