W. B. Ijeuoir then passed the remainder of the night with Boyd, while Lenoir and Newhail went to sleep. The detectives were paid off, and the party left on the half-past seven o'clock traiu on Wednesday morning for Cin ciuuali, when- they missed connection and laid overall night, at the Broadway Hotel, roomiug together as other trav elers, Boyd lieing jierfectly at liberty, and having many opportunities of es cape, which he. however, did not attempt to avail himself of. They then took the train for Ijouisville, where they laid over seveu hours. Here Boyd met an old friend and had a long private talk, Louis Ijeuoir having gone out, and Wil lie, with great delicacy, leaving the two in privacy. Thuimlay night they took a sleeping-car for Na-hvi'le, W. B. Ie noir retiring first aud Louis Lenoir and Boyd occupying the same berth. The Messrs. Lenoir took breakfast at Linck's Hotel in Nashville, on Friday morning, ieaviug Boyd, who did not w i-h any, iu the cars during their ab--i nee. At Decherd's, Mr. Ienoii heard that the conductor had received a dis patch at Estell's Station, asking if Boyd was atsiard, to which he replied iu the negative, not recognizing nim among the three travelers who were enjoying themselves iu social conversation. On their arrival at ( 'battauooga they went to the Reed House, wheu, leaving his cousin with Itovd, Mr. Leuoii went ov. r to the Burns House, wheu he saw Mr. Benson and the Marshals. Messrs.

After auppci Marshal CI in gan gave Lenoir a formal receipt for the prisoner, aud reluctantly i mended to iron Boyd, but Mr. Lenoir considered that it was uunecessary aud telegraphed to Captain S. P. Evans, at this point, ask ing that be le -pared that indignity. His reply was that he left it to tbedis- cretion of his sulsirdiuates, who availed i themselves of the privilege aud did not proceed to extremities. At Chattanooga the prisoner had a 1 long interview with bis nephew, A. W. I Boyd, who left on the night train and Brooklyn Sunday for violation of (he excise law. A Havana letter states that a cargo of seven nunared coolies arrived there on the tenth instant. They command six hundred dollars per head. The cold-spell commenced again yes terday in New York.

He considered himself slightly culpable in connection with the frauds. Judge Davis declined to hear the details of Garvey's voyages, and -aid it wa3 sufficiently transparent that Onrvey's testimony was that of a man who had beeu promised protection. Oarvey further testified that when he went to Europe he was worth over a million dollars, actjuired between IWJS and is? 1 ; said he always intended to re turn, but that his friends told him tbey would not fight his battles for him un less he went away.

After recess, Mr. Garvey, on cross-examination, stated that the whole amount of his claims, real and fictitious, was two hundred thousand dollars; of real ones, it might lie about uiuety thou sand dollars: the value of his wife's dia monds and jewelry since '71 was about twelve thousand dollars. Tweed pre sented him with some articles iu silver on. his marriage, which he still has.

' Witness stated that within the last year he had brought a claim agaiust Tweed for twenty thousand dollars; it was settled by striking off the item of t w o thousand dollar- for work done at Greenwich. Witness admitted that cer tain receipts produced were for payments made by Tweed for work done at ( ireen wich; one check for twenty thousand dollars he said he never had in his hand before, but admitted on the paper lieing reversed that the indorsement was bis. Garvey sustained the cross examination more coolly than was ex pected, but he caused frequent hursts of laughter by his querelous objections to being tied down to strictly direct an swers. He spoke of the city officials as the quartette. He had everything entered, day and date, on a memoran-dnin-lKiok. He must be worth uearly a million dollars, from his statements. The last item he was examined about was one of one hundred and nineteen thousand dollars for building a house for Dick Connolly, ou Fifth avenue, of which he received seventy-four thousand dollars for labor and materials. He never, to his recollection, told the grand jury that he received a cent improperly from I weed. anous receipts, which were passed to Tweed by Garvey, for sums ranging from two thousand to thirty thousand dollars, were put iu by the defense as part proof that what Gar vey represents as a margiu allowed him by Tweed ou bills against the city, were really paid directly by Tweed himself, and not by the city.

Thursday uigbt such a dense fog enveloped the country that nothing could be seen at a distance of forty yards. The two forces were then about twelve miles apart. It was thought necessary to communicate with each other. Friday morning Captain Beruard opened the battle agaiust Captain Jack, who had about two hundred warriors concealed along the Hue two miles iu length. Wbeaton heard the firing, and bail no alternative hut to move to Cap tain Bernard's aid without his howitzers. The troops fought the unseen foe from eight o'clock in the morning until dark, under a terrible fire, during which scarce ly one Indian was seeu. The troops lost forty killed and wounded. The loss of the enemy is unknown. The troops were finally obliged to retire. Bernard bore the brunt of the fight, and suffered terribly. All the cavalry fought on foot.

Witness said Brooks came to h'pi saying he had received one hundred sbarfs from Du rant, and that uuder the rule he was entitled to fifty shares additional. which were finally made over to eilson, the son-in-law of Brooks; at the same time Neilson bor rowed five thousand dollars Of him Dil lon to pay for them ; Durant paid for the stock transferred to Neilson by the company; conld not tell whether Neil sou repaid the five thousand dollars, without looking at his books; did not know what Ames did with the stock transferred to him; at the interview with Brooks relative to the fifty shares, neither Alley nor McComb were pres ent: Brooks had nothing to do with the money loaned to Neilson by witness; Brooks said distinctly that the stock was to go to bis son-in-law Neilson i and not to him (Brooks i. Witness never knew of Brooks having received any divi dends from the Credit Mobilier; did not know where the books of the Credit Mobilier were, uuless they were in the hands of Mr. Ham; never heard of Al ley's connection w ith the transaction of Brooks. Judge Poland asked the witntfv to re fresh himself from his Iwoks about the Brook. Neil.-oii transaction, and the committee adjourned till to-morrow. THE CjUjDWKLL HKII5ERY CASE. The Committee on Privileges and F.lections, in the case of Senator Cald well, met at one o'clock and discussed the propriety of forcing the production of a letter iietweeu Governor Carnev aud Ex-Congressman Clarke. Senator! Trumbull said that the case of Senator Caldwell w-as being investigated, iflid not witnesses Carney and Clarke. He therefore was opposed to forcing the pro duction of private letters between them. Senator Anthony concurred, but after some discussion the room was cleans! to consider the matter secretly ; the room was reopened, the Committee having decided that the letter must be produced. It detailed corrupt bargains in Cald well's election, and closed with the ex pression that an investigation he made. The defence attempted to show the dif ference between the statements in Car ney's letter and his sworn statement, but failed; a long and tedious examina tion however was only confirmatory of testimony already disclosed that a great deal of money changed hands at the election now under investigation. THE COTTON TAX AND THE SYNDICATE. To-morrow was the day fixed by the Ways and Means Committee to con sider a bill to refuud the cotton tax, but as several promiueut bankers are here to lie heard on the syndicate question, the cotton tax bill will be set aside and the ftatements of these gentlemen heard. The President sent the following names to the Senate to-day: Thos. Jer negan, Surveyor of Customs, Michigan City, Indiana; William McKenyon, Postmaster, Powell, Michigau. THE UNION PACIFIC INVESTIGATION. The Wilson Investigation Committee consumed much time in arranging for the examination of E. H. Rollins, Presi dent of the I'niou Pacific Railroad, who was present with two large trunk- full of books belonging to that company. After some further testimony from Dillon, the Poland Committee ad journed till to-morrow. THE BOSTON RE1JEF BILL. The majority of the Senate Commit tee ou the Judiciary, iu reporting ou the House bill for the "relief of the sufferers by the Boston fire, submit a long argu meut that in view of the express con stitutional provisions securing to all the State-equal privileges and advantages iu commerce and manufactures, Con gress has uo power to pass the bill. In reply to the argument that precedents support the bill, it is answered that the con-titutiou is an abiding command, aud that nineteen violations of it will not justify a twentieth, aud that, more over, such bills of this character as have been passed hereto re were not seriously opposed or fully considered with regard to constitutional questions. The Portland relief bill was passed without debate, and seemingly without consideration. The Chicago relief bill was reported by the Senate Committee on Finance, but was not considered by the Judiciary Committee: and it is said to be fair to presume that the sympathy of the Senators for the sufferers iu that unparalleled calamity contributed more to the passage of the bill than the deliberate judgment of the Senate upon the constitutional question. The committee continue as foUows: "The importance of the subject, and the fact that a calamity by fire cannot be distinguished from one produced by Mood, hurricane, earthquake, or any other visitation outside of the ordinary course of things, and the fact that if Congress attempts to inquire against oue, it must agaiust all. not at all justi fies, hut calls lora reconsideration of the subject, and makes it necessary to de termine the principles to lie applied in all such cases. If, in view of all these considerations, Congress shall pass the bill, it is not jierceived by your Commit tee upon what ground Congress could re fuse relief to individual sufferers. How many buildings must lie destroyed to justify the interference of CoLgress? Must there be a thousaud, or five hun dred, or one hundred, or fifty, or five'.' Where is the line to lie drawn'.' Must Congress become a great al moner of the nation and a great in surance company for forty millions of people."' After arguiug that this bill cannot lie regarded as substantially a drawback of the duties, for the reason that the bill relates merely to articles used iu this country, and that draw backs like duties must be unifonu throughout the country, the committee continue: "If it be said that the bill is in effect a mere appropriation of money out of the Trea-ury, aud that Congress has the power of appropriation limited only by the fact that the appropriation must be made to pay its debts and pro vide for the common defense aud gene ral welfare of the United States, the answer is plain iu the bill. It does not provide for the payment of any debt or for anything necessary to the common welfare and defense, nor hi it an appropriation for the general welfare; it is essentially a local measure. They quote from Story' CoiiniienUtrie on the Constitution to show that a power to lay taxes is uot in the common sense a general power, but is limited to those objects;" and contin ue . by saying that "it requires no argu men to show that the power of appro priation Is no broader than that of taxa tion, and therefore a Congress cannot levy taxes for a merely local purjsise as contra distinguished from a national one, it cauuot appropriate money for such local punosee." the Minority Committee, consisting of Senators Ed- mtnd and Wright, in the course of their dissenting report, say that 'if it lie the .iudgnieut of Congress that the general weifar1 be promoted by the free importation Of good to be ted. for a particular purpose, in a par ticular place, or in a particular stale; but liecause the object to which tbey are to lie devoted happens by accident to be one etiectual in some ?tate or place, there can be said to lie no reference to that Stafe or place as such, as the same tfoous, and ror the same purpose, could no( lie Used on that occasion in any othar State: or place. Its real spirit and essence ill such a case is not to interfere with the tmiformity, or 'Teate a preference tietween the States or ffcrts, but it is to accomplish the general welfare by aidiug a particu tar object, or a special enterprise, which of necessity must be located some- w?:e., and not everywhere iu the country t? we liave seen it. Therefore such a law does Hot violate the letter of the Constitution ; it is equally clear that it 'loes not violate its spirit, -which, as we have seeEjWas to prevent the oppression of a particular State for the benefit of others, and not to prevent Congress when the grneral welfare! rec-nitfo: it, from allowing all fee citizens of the Country to bring in goods in aid of some special object which happened to be attainable by their use in a partic ular place." Th'e minofity cite many acis of Congress relating to import du ties, in conformity with the foregoing construction of the ?onstitution, the es sential idea being that the test of uni formity is answered by the application of the rule to the particular thing upon which the duty on import is laid In a given ts named in the law without looking to the fact that its ultimate use or destination may' happen to be one which indirectly or incidentally marks a benefit to someparticular town or par ticrjlsr State. The minority say that the report of the majority treats the bill in question as ft it were a bill declaring that all goods used in Boston should have a draw back, which is not the cae, and therefore the argument direct ed agamst such a proposition has no ai plication to the present bill. LOUISIANA AFFAIRS. The Hou--e Committee on Judiciary will proceed to the consideration of the Louisiana difficulty in a day or two. The credential- of General McMillan, elected Senator for the short term by the Fusion Legislature, and of John Itay, elected by the Pinchbeck Ijegisla ture, will be referred to the Senate Com mittee on Privileges and Elections, and the determination of their rival claims will involve an examination iuto the subject.

Senator Wilson presented a petition from Wendell Phillips and others for a prohibitory liquor law. Senator Carpenter, for the Judiciary Committee, submitted the majority re port as adverse to the bill for the relief of the sufferers by the Bostou tire. i Senator EdmondS,for himself.buhniit ted the minority report, in favor of the bill lieing both ordered and printed. Senator FMmonds, from the Judiciary Committee, reported adversely several bills to amend the bankrupt law. The committee, he said, did not mean to pass any opinion upon the amendments to these bills, but reported them ad versely because they would probably lie superseded by a new bill ou the subject. Senator Wright, from the majority of the J udiciary Committee, reported a new bill in relatiou to the bankrupt law. The bill repeals the baukruptey act of March 17, 1S67, and all supplementary and amendatory acts, said repeal to take ef fect on the first day of next Jul v; pro vided that this repeal shall not "in anv way affect any proceedings in bankrupt cy commenced before the first day of July next. Senator Kdmunds offered a resolution, which was agreed to, directing the Attorney-General to report to the Senate. as early as practicable, the ojierations of we impairment ot j ustice for tbe past fiscal year, together with such informa tion touching the operations of the pres ent year as may be available. Bills were introduced fixing, two dollars aud a half as the minimum price at which the Government .will sell all lands remaining to the United States, within its limits, for rail or wagon roads excepting lands within indem nity limits- aud claims of pre-emption settlers, and privileges accorded by ex isting homestead laws to soldiers and sailors. A bill was introduced by Senator Au thony, directing the Postmaster-General, with the consent of the President, to contract with the lowest bidder within three months after sixty days public notice for carrying mails between San Francisco, Australia and New Zealand, touching at Sandwich and Navigator is lands; service to be performed monthlv for ten years from July 1st, 187-1, in first class American-built steamers of uot less than two thousaud tons burthen, and at a compensation not exceeding two hundred and twenty-five thousand dollars per annum. Referred to Committee on Postofitces and Post-roads. Senator Stewart ottered a resolu tion instructing the Committee on rosiomces ana i-oscroads to in quire into and report to the Senate, as 'soon M practicable, the cost of construction and .present market value of the existing telegraph lines now in successful operation within the United States, and the character of the franchise and special privileges eon nected with them. Senator Conkling said he wished to offer an amendment to the resolution, and it was laid over. isenaior tor oett otrered a reso lution, which was agreed to, re questing the Secretary of the (he Treasury to furuish the Senate with information as to the condition of tbe business of the Department of Customs, the amount of force employed and what increase is necessary to put the business and accounts ot tne department in proper condition. Ou motion of Senator Carpenbr, tbe House amendment to the bill fixing the time for beginning of the annual seeebm of UieUnued States Supreme Court was concurred in. The bill is therefore passed. Senator ( 'ragin called up House mil to autnori.etbe construction or six steam vessels of war. The amendment reported by Naval Committee is to in crease the number to ten. Senator Cragiu stated briefly the con dition of the navy, and argued that more naval vessels were required by the best interests of the couutry. Senator Hamilton, of Maryland, op posed the bill. He made a statemeut of the number of war vessels now in com mission, and argued that there was no necessity for the increase. Senator Cole thought that six addi tional vessels would be enough, and that there was greater need for legislation to promote our commerce than to increase our nary. Senators Stewart, Stockton, Morrill (Mainei and Bayard advocated the bill. Pending action on tbe bill the Senate adjourned. in THE iioiM A number of bills were introduced and referred. Mr. Young I Georgia introduced and tie- House passed, uuder a suspension of the rules, a bill - to pay what is due to census-takers of the census of 18WI re siding in the Southern States, whoee payment was withheld on account of the war and their disloyalty. Mr. Randall moved to suspend the rules and adopt resolutions, alleging in a very loug preamble that the Goat Island bill, passed by the House at the last session, was passed under various misrepreseutations,and request ing the Senate io return the bill to the House. Negativts.1; yeas 94, nays 76, leas than two-thirds in the affirmative. Mr. William R. Itoberts i.New Yorkt introduced a concurrent resolution, giv ing the thanks of Congress to Captain David Ritchie, of tbe revenue steamer Moccasin, and the officers and men un der his command, for their heroic and humane action in saving forty-two lives and recovering seventeen dead liodies from the wreck of the steamer Metis, on Long irjand Sound, on the thirty-first of Augu-,', 187;.'.

Adopted ; yeas iij, nays 85. A motion to reconsider the vote was laid on the table; yeas 90, nays 88. In the midst of some excitement aris ing out of statemeut made by Mr. Haw ley (Connecticutt), that several members who were directly interested, had voted. It turned out, however, that all those members whom he alluded to, either had uot voted, or were not immediately interested, witli the exception of two. Thereupon they w ithdrew their votes. Mr. Bingham, from tbe Judiciarv Committee, reported a bill defining the true intent and meaniug of the act of eighth June, USk amending the Bank rupt Act so as to make the exemptions under it tbe same as now allowed in the various States. Mr. Hazelton Wisconsin) moved as a substitute therefor, a bill repealing the bankrupt law entirely. Carried by a vote of one hundred and twenty-nine to sixty, aud, under a suspension of rules the repealing bill was passed. Adjourned. VIDIT10AL M.VR1ETS, WHOLESALE GROCERS. GALVESTON, January -U.
