There is no news of the least importance from the Army of the Potomac. Many of the officers and soldiers arc receiving furloughs to return home and visit their families. A reconnoitering party Bent out some (lavs niro to ncrfcct our mans in the Tegion north of Culpepper and along the base of the Blue Ridge, as far as Sperryville and Little Washington, returned to camp on Friday and reported that they encountered no enemy in force, l>nt fell in with several small squads of partisans, all belonging to the Sixth Virginia cavalry. We have intelligence from Key West up to the 2d inst. The British schooner Maria Alberta, while Attempting to run the blockade into Bay Port, on the 27th November last, was captured by the schooner Two Sisters?tender to the flagship San 'jacinto. The nrize was hrnnelit to Ki>v Wrat in jcharge of Acting Master's Mate A. P. Montague. The Maria Alberta bad cleared from Havana for Mataraoros. The nature or valac of the cargo is not stated. A meeting of Union citizens has just .been held at Key West for the purpose of electing municipal officers for the ensuing year. For 'Mayor, the present incumbent, Col. Patterson, van unanimously nominated. Four Aldermen "were at the same time nominated?Messrs. Pert, Von I'histon, Kawson and Campbell. The weather at Key West waB boisterous and very cold, i The news from the South which we give to-day Is very interesting, comprising the details of the ^proceedings in the rebel Congress and the fierce denunciations of Jeff. Davis by Senator Foote. It ia recommended that tri-monthly sessions of Congress shall be held, as the business to be attended to it of so urgent a character. The proclamation of Mr. Idncoln, offering an amnesty, is regarded i>y tho Richmond Sentinel as intended to make capital in Europe. It does not see very clearly fche mode by which the proposals of Mr. J.inooln can bo carried out; whether, for instance, he is going to suspend the war while the South is considering the question, so as it may come to a con'clnsion without intimidation. The figures of the treasury report are given in our columns, showing the condition of the rebel finances for the past year. Pespatehes from Chattanooga to yesterday <tate that Colonel Walker made a successful reconlioissancc as far as Lafayette, anil captured a rebel signal station, sis officers and forty privates. The remaining force of the rebels fled. It was rumored that General Longstrcct lost four thousand prisouers and nearly all his cannon and trains in his retreat frorn Knoxville. This is a much heavier loss than that already reported. COHOBE3S. The standing committees of both houses were announced yesterday. Those of the Senate do not wary much from last session. The House committees appear to give satisfaction to all sections. In the Senate resolutions of thanks to General Hooker and General Meade and the Army of the Potomac, for their skill and valor in repelling the rebels at Gettysburg, and to General Banks and his army for their success at Port Hudson, were presented and referred. The resolution of thanks to General Grant ami his armv was also referred. A bill striking out the three hundred dollar clause from the Enrolment act, and increasing the pay of the rank anl file of the army, was introduced; also a bill increasing the bounties to volunteers. In the House a large number of propositions relating to the army, slavery and the Canadian Reciprocity treaty were introduced. Several resolutions regarding the rebellion, peace and rc-'onatruction were presented- ?nc by Fernando Wood, providing for the appointment of comini-aiom ri to jproreed to Richmond with the view of arranging for the termination of the war and semiring peace. It was laid ou the tablo by a vote of nim ty-six to fifty uino. MISCELLANEOUS HEWS. The European mails by the Canada reached this City front Boston yesterdiy morning. Our flics fere dated in London and l'aris on the 2sth ot November. It appears that th" betting at the litest mo Blent in London on the great fight between llc-nii and King was coming rather in favor of King. London 'ilohe says: - King, nlthough he w.i:; ' pnuch later in going into strict training, will n >t xceed thirteen stone two pounds, while IIe> nan Clll be at least more than half a stone heavier an hM antagonist. ., The Board of Aldermen met yrsti rdry at one to'clock. Alderman Ryers, chairman ;?? <> ten ., jbffercd a roaolution donating the sum of #.'.">?? to wohn Brown, assistant foreman of Hose Cornmany No. 30, for his heroic and daring conduct fea rescning a child from a recent fire In Hev fcnth avenue, and restoring it to the arms of iu another. The paper was laid over under the rule, tiut will be passed at the neit meeting. Alderman Ifox offered a reaolutlon directing the Street ComJLidninner to remove forthwith all the buildings erected on the Battery without autboriiy. hhis Eas adopted. The bill of Mr. Stetson, fur H.'-O, l the reotplion ot the Russian officers, mi oc ] I pov I by AlJcrmari 11*11. aa exorbitant Aldermen Jeremiah and Fox also voted against it. and the paper wan laid over Tlie bill ot Mr Htetann fot for dinners to returned volunteer rogi menta was also laid over. A resolution was offered by Alderman Farley autheriving tbeHarlem Ha.lroad Company to lay tracks i:i Fourth ave nue, from Thirty-second street to Forty-second stccet, and also permitting them to extend a track through Thirty-fourth street to the Bast river, and. if the grade be impracticable on the upper portion of Thirty-fourth street, the track to run through Thirty-second street and Lexington avenue to Thirty-fourth street, provided the company notify the Mayor of their acceptance of the per mission within ten days. Tbe dioard will meet again to day at one o'clock. The Board of Councilmea met at four o'clock yesterday. A number of bills for fitting up election places, resolutions to provide new locations for engine companies, and other aimilar papers, were appropriately referred. Morgan Jones presented the the bill of the Eighty-fourth regiment, amounting to $S4, for expenses incurred at the reception of the Russian officers. Referred The resolution offered by Alderman Farley, expressing respect tor the memory of the late Col. T. U Mcara, of the Seventy-ninth Regiment Illinois Volunteers, who was killed at the battle of Chattanooga, was received aud laid over. Morgaa Jones oflered a resolution that the Mayor be requested to have the various fire alarm bells strike the hours of nine P. M. and 12 M. on week days, and 9 P. M. on Sundays. Mr. Hayes stated that the telegraph was at present out of order, which was the reason the striking had been recently omitted. The resolution was adopted, and the Board, after holding a secret session, on motion of Mr. Hayes, adjournedd until Thursday neit, at one o'clock. The Surrogate yesterday rendered a decision as to the legal construction of James Robinson's will, holding that inasmuch as both Mr. Robinson's daughters have died since his death the estate goes to the executor of the will of the last sur* vivor. An accounting of the executors of Herman Gorton's estate was ordered. A motion that the Surrogate reconsider his conclusion in the matter of the two wills of Francis Callaa was argued. The Surrogate reserved his decision. The fourth annual festival of the New York Society of Ann Arbor, Michigan, was celebrated at that city on Tuesday evening last. After a business meeting and the election of officers for the ensuing year the company sat down to a splendid dinner, where, amid the many patriotic toasts drank, their native State was not forgotten. The nomination of Mr. Charles Franks as one of the Brooklyn Water Commissioners was confirmed last evening by the Board of Aldermen of that city. The vote stood twelve to seven. A fire occurred yesterday afternoon at Mo. 128 Maiden lane, caused by the accidental ignition of petroleum oil. A very extensive conflagration was nrevented onlv bv the extraordinary exer tions of the firemen. The storage of large quantities of these oils ought not to be permitted in the heart of the city, if the Common Council do not enact a law restricting the storage of this dangerous article we may expect soon to hare a block or two of valuable property laid in ruins. It is stated that, for the first time since the presidency of General Jackson, the administration has been able to organize in its interest the Congress ' elected for the last two years of its term. Tbero was considerable excitement ia the stock market yostorday afternoon, which was caused by the favorab o statement of the associated banks of this city, and prtoes run up one and two per cent TUo gold exchange was without animation, and prico3 ranged with small sales between 149,and I60,"f. Government 'stocks are very Urm, with an upward tendency, influenced by a report that large orders have reached the city from foreign capitalists. Flve-twouty coupon bonds are quoted at one per cent premium. The bank statement has added increased case to the money market, and it is thought the tsgal rate of interest cannot much lengor be obtained. Yesterday was decidedly the dullest day, take It alto gothcr, that has been experienced in bustnoss platan for manv a day. The talk about tariff and internal tax changes has a tendency to unaottlo the markata, and tberaby restricts sales. The weather also operatod to restrict bu-moan. At the Produce Exchange tboro was no i.TOat change. Flour and gra'n were about steady at Saturday's prices. Provisions were steady Pork wad r ither lower but steady Groceries were guiot Oottim was rather Urmer. l-reights wore Qrmer withe fairbusines-. The ffnt Prrildrncy-Urnrral Grant ?s the People's Candidate. While the managing politicians at Waahing ton are dispensing their ofBces, preferments jobs and contracts, and arranging their schemes for the next Presidency, the opportunity U of fared to the independent people of tho loyal States to take the initiative. bring forward their ticket, cut out the politicians, and walk over the course. The republican party, in the elections of the past year, has been merged In the Union war party, while the late Northern democratic party has been pretty effectually demolished and dispersed by the malign influences of the copperhead peace faction. The competing parties for the Presidential campaign remain to be organized or crystalized. The elements on both aides are afloat, and have as yet assumed no fixed or detinite shape By May or June next, the usual season for our national party nominating conventions, the war, wo expect, will be ended, and the great work of the restoration or reconstruction of the Uuion will be fairly and fully before the country. Upon this Issue, notwithstanding the temptations offered the radicals by Presi dent Lincoln in his annual Message, it is probable ho will be overslaughed by Mr Chase as the administration party candidate, on account of the powerful financial and fanatical influences controlled by the Secretary of the Treasury. But we may well apprehend that an ad tnitiialrttlSAri raf nvtmmm rmlieel tnnilnneinj and affiliations of Mr. Chase, instead of restoring tbe national harmony and lightening our heavy burthens of taxation, would bo apt only to tnake contusion worse confounded, and to create additional demands upon tbn peckots of the people to meet the lavish expenditures of the government Against these possible contingencies the people have the remedy in their own bands. They have only to bring forward a popular man. upon a popular conservative platform, and in advance of the juggling politicians on either side, In order to ba completely successful Of all men, in this view. Genera1. Grant is the man for the occasion What military availability is experience has taught us The battle of Nov Orleans (a small affair, and ot no conseijuenre whatever in shortening that war, inas much ns peace hail been sgroed upon before the battle was fought) mile General Jackson a political ilictstor by the will of the people, the battle of Tippecanoe, a paltry Indian Oglit, carried General Harrison into the White House in a popular whirlwind which swept iway all obstructions before it The supposed killing of an Indian chief made "Old Dick Johnson," of Kentucky Vice President The little bat ties succe = sfnlly fought by General Taylor in V :co. cui uiatUnf in that of Buena Visti, in v-hi h his v'.ol f:r ? u lust than si* thou sand n"i mad* DM flack President over the he d of it >ry that, and ia opposition to Gkaera wi*?* iputalion aa a soldier | NKW YORK HBRALO, TO was of aa older dote tad * smaller potter* True, Ge* Kcott foiled ft* * Presidential candi dote; but be woa defeottd by bio supposed abo litioa affiliations Uu* aomtaotiea, bowever. over the heod of Daniel Wobstor it another cane which shows that military glory ia strong or for the Preaidency than the highest repu totion of statesmanship But what wore tht military achievements, in their magnitude, of Jackson, Harrison, Taylor and Scott, compared with thoao of General Grant* Mere molehills at the foot of a great mountain What id the Humming up of Geneoal Grant's battloa* More than a dozen victories, forty thousand roboll killed and woundod. ninety thousand prisoners captured, nearly five hundred pieces ol artillery, one hundred and fifty thousand smell arms, over one hundred railroad loooraetives, over a thousand cars; and horses, cattle, cotton, contrabands, towns, cities, forts, magazines and all sorts of military stores oa the same grand scale No military successes of modern times will compare with these, except those of the campaigns of the groat Napoleon. And the best of it ia that General Grant, of all man, has the most modest ODinion of his services. Ge is. perhaps in every roapect, the most uapreteading man in the army. So little has he bad to do with polities that no other man can my peal-' lively what are his opinions on the parties and party questions of the day. All that wo knew is that bis antecedents are democratic, and that his views and inclinations are sufficiently con-' narrative for the purposes of an independent conservative movement for the Presidoocy Let the independent masses of the people, therefore, who have out themselves loose from the machinery of the corrupt and dismantled political parties of the day, take this Presidential business into their own hands, and bring General Grant at once into the field. A few town and county meetings, as in the case of General Jackson, will put the hall in motion; and, once fairly in motloo, it cannot be arrested. Brought forward thus by the people, General Grant will be triumphantly elected; and, thus elected, we may reasonably count upon a new order of things at Washington, inoluding a speedy and satisfactory restoration of the Union, retrenchment and reform in the public expenditures, a general clearing out of the Augean stabled, and some practical steps towards the reduction of our overshadowing mountain of public debt General Grant is the man for the people, and aovr is their timo to briag him out upon the course Napoleon's Diplomatic Waterloo?The Proposed Buroprae Congress a Plaile. England has positively and categorically refused to attend the European congress proposed by his Majesty the Emperor of the French.

The Karl's answers are dotlnite, and settle the affair beyond all question as far as England is concerned. She positively refuses to accept Napoleon's invitation It may justly be asserted that the acceptation in principle of the Congress by a majority of the Powers of Europe amounts to nothing more than the refusal which England has bold* ly made Austria, Uussia and Prussia all approve of the Emperor Napoleon's idea; but one and ali desiro explanations and guarantees ere they accept, which is tantamount to a refusal, as they are well aware that tho conditions they impose would invalidate the congress, in fact, .render it an absurdity ft is evident that the outspoken refusal of England will influence those Powers who have hesitated and bargained We shall see thern now following England's course, and lengthy and polite refusals will he showered upon Napoleon Some time must pass in the exchange of diplomatic notes, but at last it will be known tliat all, save the secondary Powers of Europe, have refused the proposed congress This failure will detract much from the already waning prestig" of the Emperor of the French aad his opponents will have all the better gttnn in doitroying his in tluence throughout his cmpiro The leading intellects of France are nittod against, the imne riil government la thoCorps Legislate They were preparing to attack the policy of tlie government as regards this country and Mexico, to any nothing of the anuoyanoe they would have cxuited the Emperor by probing tho Italian question, when be sprung upon them this congress coup d'elol Tho boldness of tho move gave tho Emperor's policy a momentary and moteorliko brilliancy which quite dumbfoundered the opposition, and they were forcd to rani tin quiet and await tho course of events If Europe accepted the congress Napoleon at once became the groat man of the day, aud bis sway in France would bo more than ovor powerful; if Europe refused the congress, Napoleon had one more failure to account for, and (he opposition a still more formidable weapon to wield against him It is now evident that ho will fail, and we shall soon hear of the renewed vigor of the opposition liouis Napoleon has made strenuous efforts to gain by diplomacy that lead in Europe which bis uncle, tha groat Napoleoo. gained by military successes Like tils illustrious predecessor, be has been at first vastly suocossf*il; but at last a change in his good fortune is apparent, and tie lias la'eiy suneiea some i?rn bio diplomatic defeats llu failure to persuade Rurope into a coalition ag aiost tliia country was bis (toipsic llu present failure apropos of th* congress must be deemed a scathing defeat ?a eery Waterloo? from which.diplomatically, lie will never recover IIw only, bin last resource is a great war. in which he can engage with the eympathy of the French people A struggle in favor of Poland, or a great and deadly war with England, are the last arrow-* in the quiver of the "Man of Destiny" lie will bave to make a choice, and speedy one at that if be hopes to escape lbs fate which i.<* Impending over bin _____ Itiuunwtr **n Its I'svpwknt Oroadway 1* en* wf tlie great thoroughfares of tbia city, it is one of tli" mast beautiful street* in this city, it i* one of the greatest nuisances in this or any oiler city; and it is a place of public torture more erne than iny one of the Seventeen Hells that the Hindoo* believe in Between the Batters and Union square there are in that single street constantly, at all hours of the day, not less th ji ten hoi ee down or lulling down, or engaged in the u.o-d intense *nd painful atngglo to get up iful when there j is a slight frost on the street I i < n n -' . i? ji'-asoe Usuch an extent that ('is '% t I ho; tea W* simply frightful t * &SDAT, DEORMBRTt 15, 1 been killed ia one hour between the Battery ind Corllaadt nlreet, baring broken their legu ia their Tail and ia their attempt** to get up Una dreda of valnabie bor?e* have received nuch injurtea in thi* way ae to render theui wortbleee All Una la on aocount of the barbiro'ia Ruaa pavement, and it in quite time that public attention waa uerioualy directed to the HubatitaUan of another in itu place So far. the beat pavement wo bavo had ia the Belgian; but that can be improved upon Let the cit/ autbori tiea bo oallcd upon for a change ia the pavement of Broadway MEWS FROM WASHINGTON* INTERESTING PROCEEDINGS Of CONGRESS Poaco Proportion of Fernando Wood T.nifl AB tflA TaMa BMolitien* Bsgarding (he Rebellion And BocongtrncUon.
