It is ascertained that the Gadsden treaty standi a very small chance of being ratified by the Senate. The amend ment* recommended by the President make the treaty even more unpopular than it would be in 1U original state. Hon. John L. Dawson, of Penn., deserves great credit for the manner in which he has fought the Homestead bill through tho House. It is quite probable it may not be an Hucc0H*ful in the Senate. Territorial bills ? not the Nebraska ? will be discussed in the House to-morrow, Wednesday and Thursday. The Nebraska bill will be reported from the Senate to the Houae to-morrow, and will then be referred to the Territorial Committee. It ia not intended to discuss it this week. Hon. Hiram Walbrldge has been obliged to leave for New York on urgent business. JOHN CHARLES GARDNER'S TRIAL ? DEATH OF THOS. DBVIN BEILLT? DESTRUCTION OF THE POPE'S BLOCK FOB THE WASHINGTON MONUMENT ? THE NEBRASKA INDIAN8 ? TELEGRAPHIC CONFEDERATION, ETC. The trial of John Charles Gardner will commence some time next week ? as soon as some minor cases delayed by hia brother's trial are disposed of. Mr. Key, the District Attorney, and Mr. Fendall, are appointed administrators of Dr. Gardner's estate. A strong feeling exist* here to have the counsel nnder whose auspices Gardner obtained hia award summoned to an investigation. Thomas Devin Rcilly, one of the leaders in the Irish troubles of 1848, and well known as a literary man, died here suddenly last night of appoplexy. He waa thirty years of age. The block of marble sent by the Pope of Rome for the Washington Monument was destroyed last night by some persons unknown, and the fragments of it were left on the bank of the Potomac. The house of W. W. Corcoran, the banker, waa set on fire hut night and considciatjly damaged. The Nebraska Indians now here maintain that they have not cheated in delation to the amount of their pos sessions, and stand to ten millions of acres. The objec1 of their visit is to make a proper treaty with the govern ment for their lnnda. The annual Commencement of the National Medical College and the conferring of degrees take* place to-raor row. The American Tclrgraphie Confederation met here to day. Major B. B. French, of this city, waa chosen Presi dent, and TW. P. Sbaffner, of Kentucky, Oeeretaiy. A large number of lines are represented. Considerable business was submitted and referred to committees, and the tonvention adjourned till to-morrow. The redemption of the public debt last week amounted to $280,000. THIRTY-THIRD COWGRK8S. FIRST SESSION. Hout of Ruf mnUtlrw. Washington, March ^ 1864. CB1AF OCSAN POST AGS.

Mr. Fcunt, (dem.) of Me., presented the resolutions of the Maine Legislature in opposition to the clause in the Nebraska bill repealing the Missouri compromise. Both seta of resolutions were laid on the table and or dered to be printed. The House went into committee on tot home trad B1I.I. Mr. DlAlf. (dem.) of N. Y., moved for a modification of the fourth section, so as to inciudo within the provi sions of the act persona who may declare their inten tions to become citizens after the passage of the aot. He waa opposed to all special legislation, and said there was no reason why a person who declared his intentions the next week or next year after a bill has passed, should not be entitled to its benefits equally with those who had (lone so heretofore. He wis opposed to making any discrimination as to giving its benefits, only on condition of actual settlement and occupation. Mr. Dawson, (dem.) of Pa., opposed the amendment, > on the ground that the bill should be confided to those who bsd now declared their intentions, or were now citlrens. The amendment was rejected. Mr. Cr a moon a ix, (dem.) of la., proposed an addi tional section to the bill, providing for prosecuting sur veys with the view to throe railroads to the Pacific ocean. TUo Chairman declared the amendment out of order. Mr. ('hambbmlaih appealed. The Chairman was sustained. Mr. Wtmumo, (dem.) of Pa., proposed the following as an additional xection, which was rejected:? That the alternate sections nf the public lands for which distribution ia not provided In this bill, shall be set apart f?r the purpose of granting to all soldiers of the war of fell or the surviving widows and ohildran, and likewise to all j?rsoas who were engaged in any ef the Indian wars sinee Messrs. Cobb and Grow severally offered substitutes, which were rejected. The Committee rose, and the bill as amended was re ported. Mr. Goods, (dem.) of Va., moved to lay it on the table, which was negatived by 60 against 124. The question was then taken on the first amendment, restricting the Ix-nrflts of the bill to free white persons! and adopted hj 101 against 78. The f ill provides Brat, That any free white person who is the head of a family, or who has arrived at the ag? of j tw*ntv-one venrs. andis a cltiien of the United States, I Khali he entitled to enter, free of cost, one-quarter sec tion of vacant and unappropriated public land which at I the time of the application may be subject to private en try at one doll.tr and twenty-five centa per acre, or a niiantity equal thereto, to l?e located In a body In eon I rormlty with the legal subdivisions of the public lands, nnd after the same shall have been surveyed.

ACTIVITY IN THE ASSEMBLY? -BILL TO SUITRESS GAMBLING AND DEAL ING IN LOTTERY TICKETS, ETC. eriCIAL CCRBKjFOKDBMCK or TUB SKW YORK HBRALD. Albaxt, March 6, 1854. The Prohibitory Intemperance bill, aliaa the Miunn law, was the only feature in the Senate thia morning. Sena tor Dickinson concluded hia speech, began on Friday, in answer to Mr. Brooks, of that day. He touched npon almost every other matter except the bill under debate ? 1 oasted of liia knowledge ? how he had bccu a cattle dro \er ? knew New York when the Bull's Head was whire the Bowery theatre stands now ? b:id been n uiaii cvrier <n Btaten Ivb<nd ? cleared four hundred dollars a year, i nd still took the contract fifty per ceut lower than his ompetitor, who hud lost money in the opera tion ? knew that twenty thousand women were mploycd, and could make fifty cents a day in Kew Jersey, in picking strawberries ? that many tliou ands of baskets were during the season brought daily to the eitv of Now York, two-thirds of whioh were consumed in I hut city. He also made quotations from the Bible, which be hold in liU hand, for tlie purpose of contradicting asset-lions made by Mr. Brooks. He con cluded by remarking that he had only imparted a small portion of his knowledge for the benefit of the Senator of the Sixth, but might before the clone of the Reunion make further kdevclopementa? -but did not touch the question under consideration. Mr. Brooks consumed another half hour on personal explanation and defence. Frequently he administered sarcasm in allopathic doses to Mr. Dickinson, though done so playfully that Mr. Dickinson joined the audience in laughter^ although it was at his own expense. The question pending was upon a motion made some days since by Mr. Hutchina, to extend the time from August to February next, before the law should go into operation. The reason advanced for this ? amendment, as advocated by Mr. Putnam and Mr. Crosby, was that persons now engaged in the manufacture, importation, and trafflc of distilled or fer mented liquors, might have time so to regulate their busi ness ss to prepare themselves for the action of the tempe rance law. Others stated that the time should be put be Sond the next election, in order that the people of the tate might have an opportunity of expressing their sentiments through the ballot boxes. The vote was taken, and the Aral of February carried by the casting vote of the chairman,- Mr. Lansing. A reconsideration was bad, when the vote was again taken, and then it was lost. The 1st of December was then proposed, which was as warmly opposed, and was also lost ? the friends of the bill protesting zealously against say change from the 1st of August. Another amendment proposed by Mr. Hutchinson was also pending, snd that was to insert a section allowing the people to vote for or against a prohibitory liquor law, at the next November election. Only three Senators favored this proposition. Mr. Dickinson offered an amendment making the pro perty of landlords holden for any aets of tenants under the law. This was considered so manifestly unjust that i even the ultra temperance Senators would not adopt it, 1 and it was lost by a strong vote. A large number of propositions to amend were offered and rejected; the bare majority present determined that no further amendments should be engrafted on the bill. At near three o'clock the Committee rose, and the bill was reported to the Senate. The motion to agree to the report of the committee was laid on the table to be taken up to morrow, when another day will be consumed in vot ing upon amendments which were rejected iu committee. A majority will be found willing to extend the time to December next, for having it go into effect. The bill will t-aes the Henate by Wednesday, at farthest, be sent to the House, and upon application of the previous ques tion, concurred in that body. It is now said that tJovor- , nor Peymoar will sign the bill, becvu.^e some of his friend have been so indiscreet as to cirsnlate private conversa Hons, In which they declared ho informed them he woul veto it ? and also because the HBRald and Senator Dickin son declsrod the same opinion. Ibe Iiouse was industrious in a smslTlooal way. 8evo ral uninteresting matters of a private nature were dls | cussed, several bills introduced, and others read a third ' time. Among the new bills Is one by Mr. Leigh, reguln ting the fees in the eflee of the New York County Clerk I 'I here were no members of the New York Common Coun : ell in the lobby this morning.

German Hostility to the Nebraska Rill. TflKIR l'ROCESNION YESTERDAY. The Germans of this city hontile to the Nebraska bill and the Maine law organised themselves into a proces sion yesterday, and marched about the streets, display ing Itanners, and attended with muaic, he., by way of expressing their opposition to slavery and to any law cutting off their lager bier. At about 12 o'clock they assembled iu the Park, to the nnmber of about three thousand, and, after a few speeches and some cheering, they marched down to the office of the Stoutit Ztilumj, on the corner of William and Frankfort streets, to express their condemnation for this paper, because it haa steadily supported the Ne braska bill. Arriving in Iront of the olliee of this paper, the procession halted and commenced hissing and groan ing, and by way of expressing their contempt, they threw paper caps, called fool's caps, against the building. A great number had horns and bugles, and the blnsta from these, mingled with the hissing, groaning, and yelling, produced truly an unearthly cound, not at all agreed lie to listen to. The street was completely jammed, the crowd be'ng n crested t.y spectators to the number of eight or ten thousand. Vesting some disturbance, the Chief of Police had upon the ground several platoons of men. ready to go in as soon as any overt aet was committed. There wus upon the sidewalk, on the corner of Frankfort and William streets, (whether de<ignedly or not we can not say,) a largo quantity of small cord wuod sticks, which would have answered \ ery woll for clubs, If any fighting had taken place, and beyond doubt they would have been used if any opposition had been manifested. The crowd, after hissing and yelling till they were hoarse or tired out, marched up Chatham street, back again through William to Beekmnn street, up Ileek man street to Park row, and through the east gate into the Park, where immediately wero assemble 1 an immense crowd of people, not loss, perhaps, than eight thousand. The procession, while marching through the streets, was proceeded by a band of music, and carried ia front a large white flag, upon which was inscribed ''No Nebras ka. *' After this were several smaller flags, attached to broomsticks, limbs of troes, sticks, staves, Ate., reading', "No Nebraska," "No Slavery," and "No Milne Law." When tho company marcned into the Park, a few speeches was delivered, and after some more cheering, hooting, Ac., they dispersed. New York Horticultural Horlcly. The regular weekly meeting of thia society was held last evening, at their rooms, No. f>00 Broadway. Shepherd Knapp, Esq., presided, and Mr. P. B. Mead acted as secre tary. Several very One specimens of the floral race were ex hibited on the table in front of the President, diffusing odors like " the sweet south that breathes upon a bank of violets." A letter was received from P. T. Barnuin. offering his Museum for the next exhibition of the society, in May next, Including advertising and all necessary expenses, and also pay a bonus to the society of ftlOt). A long debate ensued upon the reading of- this letter. The members appeared equally divided as to the expedi ency of holding it in the Museum, in compliance with Mr. Bamum's jequest, or engaging a room or thoir own and setting up an exhibition on their own account. Mr. Hoco thought It would be (inadvisable to hold tho exhibition at Barnum's. The place was Inconvenient and inaceessable to ladies, who would be expected to consti tute a large proportion of the visiters. The Prjmuknt said that the Htate Annnal Fair was to lie lickl in this city, and it hail lieen inquired of him whether the exhibition of the society could not lie held at the same plsce and time. Mr. Rboi said that the weightiest objection given against the exhibition was that fumls were wanting. Trie offer of the Museum would obviate this ; the offer wss a liberal one, and Mr. Rarnum seemed to hare the in- J terest of ths society st heart. Mr. Scott was opposed to the exhibition being held at the Museum. The gentleman further remarked that he did not carwalioul the great mass of people viewing the flowers, as they would probably know nothing about them : what they wanted was the appreciation or intelH gent observers Mr. lloMl did not like the threat whi' h lie understood Mr. Barnum hud made, to have a flower exhibition at all events Ii> Ids place of smusement. The PRBMBKvr said it wss a very lilveral proposition of Mr. Rnrnnm's, and he could see no objection to goln? to the Museoni. He hoped a eommitt'-e would be appointed to confer with Mr. B. The Six:*itrAi:v was in favor of holding the spring ex hibition In the Museum. He had but one object inn- -the Museum was not adapted for an exhibition of plants. The members would haws to ask themselves a serious question ? Would the plants live there? The plants that wi uH be srntthern would be worth half a million of dollars ? (laughter) ? or less. The matter onght to be considered seriwxslv. The pR?sniie>T asked if the meeting waa ready ffcr the aprointment sf a committee. The SBi'iiKTARr said that Mr. Barnum ought to pay fer all tU plants damaged during the inhibition (Laughter.) The PiiBunwrr put the question ss to the lommittee, j and a committee of Ave. was appointed. The Hsr bktakt said it was neeeasary thnt ? resolution ? should be passed providing that an exhibition he held In > the spring, if an arrangement could he rosii"' with Mr. | lis mum petfeetly satisfactory to the sahboouitnlt t/-e.

At the stated hour be tween oue and taw thowaai* persona assembled In front of the City Hall, sad soon sdtor the meeting waa organ ised by the appointment of Z. W. Andrews ox President. The greatest unanimity appealed to prevail in relation to (be purpose* for wb^afr'it bad >*en called, and we heard aev< ral express iu stumg terma their indignation against, he elty authoritiea far the culpable neglect they hae? exhibited upon a subjeat of such importance to the aani tary londition of oar c*y. One gentleman, before tb? meeting waa called to order, suggested the psoprlety of dumping two or throe hundred cart Ionda- of mnd oppo site Mayor Westervelt's residence, a a a testimonial of their esteem for the Herculean energy be baa displayed ?n procuring the removal of tho tilth. He waa willing, ha aaid, te sontrlbute to the erection of a testimonial of tkli' kind, and hinted that if in the course of a few days th? same disregard of the health and cle&nlineaa of oar city at 111 continued, not only the Mayor, but every member of the Common Council, would be forcibly reminded of their duty by having similar favon laid before their ow? doors. After the meeting was called to order, the President made a few brief remarks. His appointment as Prerf dent, he said, was entirely unexpected by him. He had come in with the crowd because be thoroughly sympa thised with the objects for which the meeting was called; and it would be more gratifying to his findings if sooso other gentleman were appointed in his stead. My heart and kouI, lie continued, are with you, and 1 wlH aid yon with my best endeavors to carry out any measures that you may adopt to remedy the great grievance-of which we all have such just cause of complaint. T ask you, therefore, with all sincerity, to accept my resignation. (Cries of "No, no I stay where yott ure.") Sine* you are so determined, then I will endeavor, to tha best of my ability, to discharge the duties incumbent upon me in my present position. , My convictions of what is right, and my knowledge of the present disgrace ful condition of our streets, has urged me, in comraoa with a large number of others, to exclaim against tba total disregard which our municipal government has exhibited for the true interests of our city. We are called upon now to act for ourselves, and I trust wo shall do so with a determination not to be diverted froua our purpose. At the conclusion of the President's remarks, which were received with loud applause, II. N. Wild, Esq., and Mr. G. N. Middlebrook, were appointed Vice-Presidents. It was then moved that a committee of Ave be appolntod to report, at a meeting to be held in the same place to morrow afternoon, at four o'clock, the names of a com mittee, constating of two persons from each ward, whoM duty it khall be to take Into consideration the conditio* of the streets, and devise means for their immediate cleansing. This motion was carried unanimously, and the meeting proceeded to nominate the persons who were to com pose It. The first name was that of Mr. Middlebrook, then Mr. John Belden. Mr. James Gordon Bennett was next proposed, and the nomination approved of with three cheers. Pome individual called out the name of Homo* Creeley. and it was also accepted. The last named waa Francis McLaughlin, and his name completed the com mittee. An unknown person in the crowd suggested the name* of Henry J. Raymond and George Dutler, but they wera both rejected. After the appointment of the committee a motion waa made and carried in favor of adjournment. The crowd then quietly dispersed. City Intelligence Fm Ancu Rxmamniv or Columbia Coiuh ?
