Although the Sen ate has formally agreed to adjourn on Monday, the proppect of carrying it bow seems very doubtful.

Tb Inpiichmiat, The action of the Southern members at their meeting yesterday has revived the im peachment qestion in some quarters, and the subject was freely talked over this morning among the members before the House met. r-'outhern members are engaged in canvassing the House to see whether they could get enough strength to pass a resolution to im peach the President, and get a committee to draw up and report the articles of impeach ment. They say they will meet with unexpected puccess. Colonel Hamilton, a member from Florida, has the resolution prepared and ready to offer. lie has consulted with. Butler, Bout well and others, und he says they hare pro mised to sustain it. Tbe whole movement comes from the South ern Fenators and members recently admitted. They say it will he impossible to maintain State organizations in loyal hands while the President is so bitterly hostile to them, aud that the only remedy they prescribe is to im peach and remove him. . Many of the old impeachers regard the matter with unconcealed favor, but they ex press doubts as to the propriety and practica bility of tbe movement. Vhe Signi of the Tax BUI. Tbe President stated this morning to some members who called upon him to ascertain what te proposed doing with the tax bill, that he bad not made up his mind yet whether he would sign it or not.

The bill waa so amended as to include Virginia and Mississippi, the same act to apply to each. In this shape it will be reported to the House. Actios of Southern Committee. The Southern members, to lay the action of their meeting before Congress, met the Recon struction Committee this morning, and afte laying the report before them, the members of the Committee advised the Southern Com mittee to lay them first before the House and have them referred to the Reconstruction Com mittee. This was agreed to. Tb Array Bill. The House Military Committee is engaged this morning in considering the Senate bill for the reduction of the army. They have amended it so that deserters from the army and the navy shall not receive bounty, and also that the States of Virginia, Mississippi, and Texas shall not, for the present, be allowed to raise militia, and shall not be in cluded in the proposed distribution of arms to the Southern States.
