There was a brutal dog-fight in New York last Tuesday, which ended in one being literaly "chawed alive,' and the other coming out best in :i torn, bloody and beastly condition.

They were tor some time on the floor of the House, and were Introduced to members, creating some sensation. Their evidence lasted six or MM hours, but can be reduced to the fol lowing result: They were anxious to have the crops of 18t9 moved at as high prices as in 1S63, in order to fur nith tracsjKirtatiou lor the Erie road, l.ut they aw this could not be done without a consequent increase in the price of gold, t lie latter being low. They were anxious to aso-rtai.-i what the financial policy of the adminis tration would be, aud to that end broached the matter first to Gen. Grant, on June 15th, when he was on his wav to the P-aue Jubilee in Bos ton. This was at dinner, on board of one of Fisk's steamers, and it ap peared in the conversation that Grant was in tavor of an early resumption ol specie payments. He was told that that wouid biing a crash; that gold was too low for good business, even then; but Graut replied: "Gentle men, we might as well prick the bub ble." Grant was again sounded by the witnesses at Long Branch, but did not make any definite replies on finan cial topics. In the meantime Cou'd tec une ac quainted with OocUa, ihe President's brother-in-law, and some plan was developed by which Butteifield was to be made Assistant Treasurer, which was afterward done in July. Grant I went to Newport, and (Jould wrote . him a letter, which risk carried, arguing against reducing the prioe of told, stating that the time was near they (Fisk fc Co ) would put up the price. Little or no reply was made to this, and Corbiu was brought into their confidence. Corbin a-tid he could flx things ail Tight with Orant.

Corbin explained to Fisk all his arrangements with Gould, and said he (Corbiu) was be hind the throne; that he could regu late Grant; that the Government would not sell gold; that Mrs. Grant's letter to Mrs. Corbin said so, and that there was to be no uneasiness. Fisk says that at first he was not disposed to believe Corbin, but the latter's points were so positive that he placed full faith in him. To make asaurance doubly sure before more purchases (.:- made, Corbin said he would write to Grant, who was then (September 15th) at Washington, Pennsylvania, and send the letter by Fisk's confidential man. This was done. The messenger, Chapin, reached ashington, near 1'ittsburg, ttt 7 n.m.. routing up the General and handed him the letter. He read part of it, went into another room, and in fifteen minutes returned and said all right. Chapin went at once to the nearest te.egraph office, and tele graphed to Fck. "The letter is deliv ered; Grant fays all right." Fisk said that on the d iy before the dark Friday he saw Corbin, who said: "AU is now right; that letter to Grant has clinched matters." Fisk and Gould then commenced to buy gold, and It rose from 137 to HI, and opened at 141 on the dark Friday. A broker, named Wm. Belden, asked to participate in the transaction and gave Fisk power to buy gold for him. One Albert Speyprs was Belden's bro ker on these purchases of gold at 143, and hUieyera tbea iuinped in lor him self anil bought till it ruse to 160, be lieving that it would go higher.

Corbin inquired "what situation are you in?" Fisk replied, " Wodo not know. We can't tell In all this excitement. "Wo may be ruined." Corbin loudly replied that it must be a mistake; his inlor m.it ion was explicit that Mr. Bout well would not Mil gold, and, If he had, he had doubtless done so without consulting President Grant. Mrs. Cor bin came iuto the room, and said she agreed with her husband. She said she had a letter Irom Mrs. Grant wish ing the whole speculation was over, tor it made her husband nervous. Both of them agreed to go at onoe to Washington and see the President, as they said, and have the sale of gold withdrawn, but they never did thii. Gould testified that Gen.

The Atlanta correspondent of the Cincinnati Commercial thus daguorro typos the Southern nias and scala wags as they appear when they come forth in their glory "Taking the Oath." He says: Since the war the human Intellect has been racked in attempting to pro duce oaths that would make loyalty to bloom aud blossom in the savannas and swamps of theSouih; that would cause a man to fall down aud wor ship the flag that he hates, and kiss the hand that smites him. But of all the oaths yet manufac turedaent down here, the tightest one is that which accompanied ihe Geor gia bill, and which each member of the Legislature must swallow before he cau take his seat. Ben. Butler ami Builock are said to have spent many a weary hour in its manufacture, and to have rej need with exceeding great joy when they contemplated the thing after all its finishing touches had been put ou. In addition to other matters, too numerous to mention, a man must swear that he never held any sort of an office undtr tho State G ov ernment while Georgia was out of the Union. With one sweeping clause, it includes all officers from Ojvernor down to a freight-car brakeman ou the State Road. I went up this morning to the room of Major Williams, at tho Capitol, who Is engaged iu administering the ironclad Irog to all members who have the nerve to take it. One of the Solons was present, look ing at the thing through his spectacles, and occasionally stopping to clear out his throat. It was evideut that he contemplated making way tor it to go down. After reading it two or three times, he made the observation that "she was pretty tight." Neverthe less, ho took it, and his name was duly recorded with a great deal of solemnity, in a half-dozen books, where it will be handy for the Radical Smelling Committee aud their oiimi- bus-load ot lawyers whom they have i employed to prosecute all cases ot j perjury under the act.

From the room where tho frog is . administered to the Governor's recep- j tion apartment ihe route is easy, but one door being bet woeii. Ill iact. the only way to reach the frog is to go through the rtception-room. Here were collected a miscellaneous throng, without distinction of race, color or previous condition. A bevy of clerks, with their beads nicely combed, their clothes nicely brushed and their boots nicely blacked, were dodging about, making a great bustle, and not ac complishing anything particular. Two burly negroes, with no white blood of consequence in them, were seabed at a table, each with a mam moth pen and holder behind his ear, after the manner of a fashionable hotel clerk. One was reading the morning papers, and the other was w riting, taking care, however, not to uso the pen behind his ear, but an other one, that lieiiind the ear proba bly being exclusively lor ornament as an honorary distinction. Presently a smalt swarm of colored members came in -full fifteen thou sand dollars' worth, if we wore back iu good old Democratic times. Araona them was Senator Bradley, from Sav a.mah, who has the reputation among the Democrats of being a "mean nig ger." The Senator was well dre-sed, carried a cane and ha I his hands cased in kid gloves. Ho certainly has tte address aud mauuers of a gentleuiau. The returned prodigals not exact ly prodigals eith-r were in the Jol liest humor. "D du't I tell you w.-'d meet again.

In the Legislature last night at midnight, the Chattanooga Railroad bill passed the Houe altera se-sloo of nearly twelve hours of confusion aud disorder. The Bulletin says it is doubtful if a more confused) excited and disorderly legislature has ever bs-m seen on this continent or anywhere elae. At another stage of the proceedings. Mi Lowell distinctly charged that there were mem tiers voting lor the bill who had lieen paid to vote for it. The charge brought about him a crowd of excited members; and to picture the ceuo of disorder at the moment would be simply impossible. A score were addressing the Chair aud ad dressing Lowell at the same moment, gesticulating in a me laciug way, and one who raised his voic.3 above the rest signified that Lowell wits paid in the interest of Chas. Morg4i.. To-day Mr. Wiltz asaed Ieive to record his vote against the Chatta nooga Railroad bill a bill which he did not hesitate to pronounce as the most outrageous and villainous that was ever enacted by any deliberative assembly.

The delegates w ho spoke In favor of the proposition were Messrs. Campbell, Bate and Carter. The speech of the latter gentleman was somewhat significant, as coming from an East Tennessee Unionist. He took strong and decided ground against negro suffrage in any form. Those who spoke against the propo sition and In favor ofoontinningcolor ei sufirage as now accorded, were Messrs.

Mr. Davis introduced a bill to amend the act passed yesterday for the nd ".'.!"?"? ',f Vitciaih providing that the word oath wherever U occurs shall be construed as including uu atiirma tioij. The Speaker suggested that as no official information had been received of the act having become a law, that the bill lie on the table lor the present. Mr. Davis acceded. Mr. Burdett, from the Committee on Elections, called up the report of April last on the contested election case from the Fourth Congressional District of South Carolina declaring A. S. Wallace entitled, prima facie, to his seat. The question was discussed pro and con by Burdett, Riudall, llurr, Mar shall, Bo wen, Whittemore, Stevenson and Peters. Fiually tho debate closed, and a resolution offered as an amendment by the Minority Committee Messrs. liandall and Burr that neither claim ant was entitled to a seat, was adopt ed yeas 103; nays 78. Alter a good deal of technicalities the' whole subject was laid' oh the ta ble, and the resolution recommitted. The question of election to be ex amined on its merits was offered by Mr. Butler, of Massachusetts, and agreed to. The evening session was for debate only. Senate. The Committee on Politi cal Disabilities reported favorably pn tiie bill to relieve certain persons from leeal political disabilities. Mr. Hamlin called up the joint reso- j lution relating to the seizure of dis- i tilled spirits in California, the ques-; tion being upon its Indefinite post-: ponement. After some discussion it ! was laid aside, and at 2 p.m. the cur rency bill was taken up. Mr. Fen ton Jspoke against any ex pansion of currency and In favor of an early return to a specie basis. Pend- ! ing the bill neither retarded nor tend ed to advance to the desirable result. He favored a gradual contraction of currency, but concluded that this bill contained little to alleviate the evils of the hour. The Secretary's plan tor funding the debt aud furnishing new bonds for banking purpis.'s in place of the old might be beat. e could hope to get it at all events. Ho had no pet measure of his owq, Mr. Sumner moved to ameDd by substituting for the bill a similar bill reoeutly introduced by mm lor an in crease of bank circulation to 800,e00, 000 upon the retirement of green backs. Mr. Ramsey Inquired whether It was proposed to take action on the bill to-day. Mr. Sherman, on behalf of the Fi nance Committee, desired the Senate to take action on the bill. He said it was a preliminary measure, and npon its disposal the Committee would pro ceed to considerother important meas ures beiore them, amoug them one now offered as an amendment, but which had no pertinence here. A plan of retiring three per cent, certificates was n commended by the Seeretary of the Treasury and tho President, and no objection to U that he knew of bad been made in the pub lic prints. 1 1 seemed to be considered tho most innocent w:ay in which the pressing necessity for a partial distri bution could be made. Other pro visions of the bill were also generally assented to. The only doubt now Is whether such banks would be author ized. Large corporations, chiefly on the Pacific coast, were actually organ izing en a basis ef this bUL The Comptroller of Currency has is sued a notice to the national banks requiring them to forward to this office Immediately, a report of their condition bp show n by their books at the elo-e of business on the 22d Inst. The President sent to the Senate to day the nomination of Joseph II. Blackburn, Marshal of Middle Ten nessee. VIRGINIA AND GEORGIA. Admission of the FormerTerry's Instruc tions as to tbe Latter. Rejoicing in RichmoadIOD Guns Fired in Honor ef the Mate's Admission. Washington, January 25. The Virginia question is at last disposed of. The Reconstruction Committee met yesterday morning, and decided that it was best to accept the Senate amendment made on Friday last to the House bill, and, accordingly, when it came up in the House it was concurred iu by a party vote. The committee made the discovery that the so-called lundamental conditions oi the iSniute bill were already in the Constitution of Virginia. The discussion In both houses has made nearly two hundred columns of the Oongrional Globe, and has been the most elaborately discussed of the many reconstruction measures. The bill will be laid before the President to-day tor his approval. The Virgin ians w ho are hero say that rather than submit to further delay they are pre pared to accept the bill a it passed. Just before the bill was voted ou a very warm triangular debate took place between Butter on the one side, and Bingham and Farnsworth ou tbe other. Butler classed the lalter among the weak Republicans acting with their allies, tho Democrats. Farns worth said that he did not care tor the "crack-o'-the whip" of the Massa chusetts member, foe the latter was too iiew in the Republican party to be a dictator. "He was," said Farns worth, " chasiug fugitive slaves through Massachusetts when I was an anti-slavery man. He was in the Charleston Convention, voting fli'ty seven times tor Jefleoon Davis lor President, w hen I was a Radical in the Chicago Convention." A meseujjer bus left here taking in structions to Gen. Terry. They are, iu brief, to go on and execute the law as he understands it, and adds that be is sustained in what he has done so far. A Radical member of tho Georgia Legislature telegraphed here to one of the Reconstruction Committee that more legislation would be needed to bring order out of the present chaos. In a debate on Georgia, in the House, the Democratic members.espe cially General Morgan, of Ohio, de lied Butler, or any Ot the Republicans, to point to one line of the reconstruc tion laws which authorized' such a military commission as Terry has sit ting to inquire into the eligibility of members of that Legislature. LATER. Six o'clock, p.7n. A salute of 100 guns were fired in tho Park to-day in honor of the admission of the State. About 500:j persous were present, two thirds of whom were colored. Na tional flags were raised ou the Custom house and Capitol. Gov. Walker spoke a few minue?, congratulating the people on the admission, and pre dicting a glorious future for the State. A colored Conservative and a number of colored Republicans made political speeches, the burdeu of the latter be ing that if the State did not follow the spirit of the reconstruction acts she would bo put back as a territory, CUBA. A Chance for Independeneo A New Plan. New York, January 2". It has been ascertained from authentic sources that the troubles of Spain and Cuba have of late been accumulating to such an extent thut Cub.au iae penuence may Decome an accom plished fact. Through means which haye not heretofore been anticipated, a conspiracy against the present ad ministration has been discovered in Havana, and some of the wealthiest residents of Cuba have lent lt their support. This party is liLgiwtcd with the liberal politer of the Serrano Gov ernment, and believe iu the old laws, which permitted and protected the slave trade. These men have amassed their wealth by this trade, but while they are opposed to the liberal policy ot the Serrano Government, they lu hate the insurgents under Cesped. The case now stands thus : DeRodas, while fighting the Cuban rebellion, ha9 to WStCh the conspiracies set on foot bv tho ex slave traders, and by the adherents oi the ex Queen. If tbe present traitorous movements iu tho Spanish ranks should break out In open war among the various factions, the Cubans m-iy slip In between, and fiually succeed in driving them out of the Island. Oneof the leading Havana clubs has openly espoused the cause of these ab solutists, and within a week or two past this club has issued various doc uments bitterly assailing Captain General Dettodaa and hie entire Cu ban policy. To add to these troubles ex-Governor Gutierez Delonga has re cently come on to this city from Eu rope and left for Havana to set on loot a movement in favor ol the ex-Queen Isabella. His immediate object is to proclaim Prince Alphonso, Prince of Asturias, King of Spain, and to rally under his banner the disaffected por tions ef the Cuban population. TELE6RAPHIC MARKETS. NEW YORK.
