move to insert in the fonrtli auction, after the word?
"canacitv and good conduct in the Held," the word-)
" and ten of raid regiment? ?hail be officered by officer?
to be selected from the Veteran Itetcrve Corps.'*
Mr II) NMiiiKf? spoke of the proposition he offered as I
si, m ? of justice t<> men who hail served faithfully, and -
to vi h, m tho promise of retention lu the service had
bei'h hi'ldout.
Mr. It ?s.jtrir*! denied that tie retention of the Vet?
eran Ketervc Corpa bad ever been promised by the
1 (?m eminent. They were detailed far light and easy
.,!-, while needed, and, when no longer needed, tho
OunilBBBBl was free to muster Mon out. The officers
of Ihe Veteruu l?eseme Corp?. Ml?. Feraendeo said,
conttitiited u very ?mall part of the officer? wounded in
the ?ert Ice, not r?or? than one in ?JO. The request of
the corp? for retention he considered ?elfish and inipu
dent. Under the present bill the Veteran Heierve offl- j
tan would ?land the tame chanco a* other volunteer
I officer)?.
Mr. U'liao. said that ?5 regiment? of veteran re?
tenes nue created with f?U?) officers. Many of
?tin ??officer? were most excellent. Thev were or
| gamied for n special purp???e. Tbey had performed
, their duty well. Several of them wem now employed
| by theTreaury Bureau. When ho (Mr. Wil?on) first
tntr.Mliiced the Army bill it provided that eight regi
' ment* ?hould be composed of men who had
1 tuen woundod In the service; the officer? of
which regiment? ?hmiid bo ?elected from the Veteran
Bessere Corps, or other officer? of volunteers
' disabled in tho ?ervier. Hi? (Wilson'*) idea was to or
I gani/?? ?even or eight regiment? sf men who had been
| wounded, M Ix" officered bv tho Veteran l?eseme and
?other wounded officers, because tbo eouutry wa* full of
other otlicer? who had not been in the Veteran l?eseme
Corp?.. Hut leading (?enera!? of the army wore opposed
lo the provision and it was ?trtcken out.
Mr. Ili'MiHP K? agreed to modify his amendment so
a? to embrace ??ffi? or? wounded in the service and not
belonging to the Veteran ltcserve Corps.
Mr. IIkniiii .a a amendment waa not adopted.
Mr. Wadi: moved to amend the second section so as
to'provide tbat two of the new oavalrv regiment? shall
be colored troops. Mr. Wade ?aid experience had
shown that colon d tro??p? were a? good u? white; and
it wai a noted fact that while tho white regiment?
along tho frontier? wer?) beiug reduced by desertion,
there were no deiertious from the colore?: regiment?.
Mr WihkiN wu in favor of tbo amcn.-ient of Mr.
Wade, u hieb he said waa in the original ! I. It would
be economy to ?dopt it. The cavalry w. uni be needed
un tia? frontiers. And it wa?a fact that of the white
regiment? there, 30 or ID per cent had de- ?rted. Colored
troop? hardly ever doterted; betide, oolored men were
excellent soldier!. Home of the beet horsemen in the
lervice were negror? recruited In Kentucky.
Mr Wade* amendment waa adopted.
Mr. Kiubwood moved ?o to amend the <3tb lection u
to provide one Mtjot for each regiment of infantry in?
stead of two. It was adopted.

He fonnd, however, that the resolution wai entirely dif?
ferent from what he thought it was, and, of course, his
remark wtw entirely inapplicable.

The Home went Into Committee of the Whole, Mr.

Mr. Wadhblrne (111.) addressed the Committee in
I Mr. Wahabi une opposed the resolve as a m?Mun
taxing the people's money to advance private interests,
or oiK-ning a new ero In legislation at a very ?noppor

! prnpriiiteJ when the nation is io tremendously in debt,
for any purpose not solely intended to advance the pub
lie welfare. He produced a letter from the fiery De?
partment stating that the lervice provided for from
that Department could not be performed without em?
barrassment and at a cant of tikAi.tUO. He was opposed
to Me resolve for financial reahons and oa Ce g nu:.J
of our political relations with the powers of Knrope.

during the late civil war. Mr. W. wai very severe in
commenting upon the course of the French Government
toward that of the Cnited States, and discussed tho
Mexican iiuestion with great vigor and closeness of
diction, ile closed his remarks by expressing the hope
that, hartog put down the greatest Rebellion known ia
history, hiving restored and regenerated the Union,
having reached a stans above all other nation?, we will
not lower our dignity or our position by paning such a

Mr. CBiaUM (S. Y.) next addressed the Committee,
ne said he wai in favor of all ichemei of tbli character.
M tending to develop the spirit of amity and to advance
the dignitv of labor in the right direction for the benefit
of all tuon, and especially for the lntereete of the
laboring classes. But he had objection! to the manner
In which the proposition bad been advonced, and to the
argument? by which it bad been suitaned. He admit?
ted the rreat imaportance, usefulneao, and he might ray
neceaiity of thu country being represented at the great
Kum;*'.m ?rational Exhibition; but he thought that the
srgumeute made in connection with the bill were ill
timed, inopportune and irrelevant. He regarded tho
assault of the gentleman from Illinois (Mr.
Woihburne) on tho gentleman from Massachu?
setts (Mr. Banki) M without reason and in
bad taste. The gentleman from Illinois was, evidently,
wounded in hu self-pride by a want of due attention
paid to him daring hu late tiiit to the French capital.
Ile did not know how a gentlemau who ipoke luch rerr
bad French should have shown such an intimacy with
the beat classes of J'rench ?Society, and be hoped that
the gentleman from Massachusetts would not be seen
always with the gentleman from Illlnoii on the Boole
\ ords dei Italiens. He held that ia guest! we should
not cavil at the form of the invitation; batitwMevl
dent that this Peril Exposition was a scheme in the la?
teral of the Government and preMUt dyuMty of
France, and not directly in the interest! of labor either
in France or elsewhere. The immense same which
visit?n to the Exposition would spend in Para
would bo io much toll paid to French stop
keepers. Still, he thought that tbe competition to
which our people were invited, could not fail to prodoce
mutual advantage, The ingenuity of the American
mechanic would secure a largo addition to oar domratio
manufactures. He haled tins as an opportunity to
break down the somewhat ?elusive policy of European
Government!, which, by stringent laws kept the eecrets
of special guilds concealed so ss to pr?tent far compe?
tition. He regretted that tbe peo plu of the United
States?the only Sovereign here?hud not been deemed
worthy of an invitation which bed been given only to
Me Government; but there was eome consistency on
tbe part of European Government! in ignoring Me
people. He doubted whether Franoe woeld accept an
invitation from thii Government that would in any way
wound the pride of the French people, or that could bo
construed into a denial of the great fundamental prin?
ciple of French Government. The French Emperor
did not wiih to recognue the people of tbis Union,
and there waa a strong disposition on the part of
wealthy and ambitious men here to submit to the lorne
what iuaolent customi of European arlitocrncy. The
American people were a democracy, and asked bo
favori; bntthey eonld not ?luietly brook the polite in
solence of France. On the w hole, however, Mr. Cbon
ler favored the paaage of the bil!.
Mr. Gannon 'iowa) next addressed the Commut?e
in support of the Joint resolution. ?Hu apology for do
iug so. he said, woo that the Agricultural Committee,
of which be was a member, had recently pas?ed a reso?
lution to the filed that they desired that the agricul?
tural intereite of the country should be represented at
Kee Filth Page.
