THE VICTORIES t^cretary Stanton's compactly worded bul letins of late military events, every line of which conveys news of a distinct Union sue cess of magnitude, have carried joy to loyal hearts ui all parts of the Union.

The re port proper, of the department, consist- of that of tbe commissioner, the superintendent of the experimental garden, the entomologist to the department, the statistician, and the article on the meteorology of the year, furnished by the Smithsonian Institute. These, however, embrace but a small portion of the volume. The remainder Is occupied as heretofore, with essays and papers npen different topics con nected with American nusbandry, furnished by som<> of our best writers upon agriculture. The commissioner has judiciously ousted the gorgeously colored and costly engravings that have heretofore figured so conspicuously in the Agricultural Reports, and given in tneir place a larger number of accurate and valuable wood-cut illustrations. ?7* The Baltimore Sun comes out to-dar as a two eent paper.

A Bis Salute in lienor ef Themas?The Rebs Pnz/led. The mail steamer Matilda arrived here this morning trom City Point. She brought up a large number of raustereri-out officers, princi pally of New York regiments. Yesterday a salute of 100 shotted guns was fired from the batteries along our lines in front of Petersburg, in honor ot Gen. Thomas' bril liant victory over Hood, and the complete smashing up of the rebel army in Tennessee. The rebs came out of their holes to see what was the matter and evidently a good deal puz zled to account for the firing. They evidently hadn't heard the news from Tennessee. Some of our boys called out to them that "Hood baa been whipped clean out of his boots," and then they began to appreciate "what's the matter."' It is expected that the comments of Rich mond editors upon Hood's awful thrashing will be rich reading and our boys are on the lookeut for early copies of the Richmond pa pers. Several of the regiments stationed on the east 6ide of the Jerusalem plank road, are now engaged in telling trees from in front of some ot our works. On Saturday one man belong ing to the 7(>th New York was killed, and three wounded by the failing of a tree. At Dutch Gap the rebels continue to keep up a pretty brisk fire upon our working parties, but with little effect however. Our battering and gunboats are not in the least backward in returning tt.e compliment. GENKRAL GRANT.

" Canadian Avkaibs in the Senate.?An exceedingly interesting debate sprang up in the Senate to-day on a motion to refer to an ap propriate committee a bill authorizing the ex penditure of ten millions of dollars for the defense ol the Northern frontier. The feeling manifested :s very strongly in favor of the mo6t vigorous action, several of the Senators urging the Committee on Foreign Relations, to which similar bills have been already referredt to report to the senate as soon as possible. An effort will be made to secure the passage ot an act tor the protection of the border early thia week. The Distbht Committee inth?S?wat*.? Senator Hale arrived tare this morning, and took his seat in the Senate for the flrst time during the session. Shortly alter the reading ol the journal, he begged to be excused from serving as chairman of the Committee en the District of Columbia, believing that there were otn?rs on the committee whose long familiarity with District affair? better adapted them to fill the position of chairman. Mr. Hale was ex cused, and bis successor will probably be an nounced to-morrow. Aojoubhmbnt.?The Senate concurred in the House resolution of adjonrnment from Thursday, the aa instant, till the 5th of Jan nary next. CONGRESSIONAL. Monday, December 19. Say ATE.?Mr. Grimes introduced a bill to es. tablish the grade of vice admiral in tha navy. Referred to the Naval Committee. Mr. Doolitele introduced a bill to enable the Prendent to expend the sum of 910,000,000, or so much thereof as in bis opinion may be neces sary, for erecting fortifications and floating batterips for protecting the >akes and frontier against the attacks of piratical and hostile ex peditions organized in the British Provinces by the enemies of the United States. He moved to refer it to the Finance Committee. Mr Sumner suggested that it be referred to the Committee on Foreign Relations, as the sub ject was already under consideration in that committee. The debate was continued by Messrs. Sher man, Howard, Foster, Johnsc . Doiittle, Hale, Farwell and others, evincing a determination to do whatever might be necessary for defence ia ibe premises and evincing a disposition to repeal the reciprocity treaty. HorPK.?Among the bills Introduced on leave was one by Mr. Rice, of Mass., creating the grade of Vice Admiral in the United States Navy; which was referred to the Committee on Naval Affairs. Mr. Davis, ot Md., offered a resolution simi lar ?o that offered by him on Thursday, and which was then laid upon the table, declaring that Congrees has a constitutional right to an authoritative voice la declaring and prescri bing the foreign policy of the United States; and that while any declaration or foreign pol icy bv Congress is pending It is net a proper subject for negotiation or explanation to a for etpi: power. Mr. Fares worth movW that the resolution lie on the table, and this was disagreed to? yeas naysTl LOCAL NEWS. The Oatri|F up?n Little Octavie R?tiril> DuraiEdH OF LrOKT. Th is mornlnf, the examination of John F. Lnstiy, wfto was arrw'.ed by the military au thorities on ttie cbarge of having committed the horrible outrage upon tlie pet son of little Octavie Kosaeau on the night of th* -jito or laat month, which resulted in her death on the following night, was brought to a close. The case would have been concluded on Fri day morning laet, but Judge Fisher ^ be fore whom the accused was brought out on a writ of habeas corpus) was takeu sick and was not able to resume the examination until this morning, when, as before stated, Messrs. Brad ley, Jr., and W. Y. Feudall appeared for the prisoner. The elster of the wife of the accused. Marth i liculand, (who It was reported gave the infor mation upon which the accused was arrested,) was sworn, and testilled that on the night of the occur re ncejahe was at the house of the a c cused, but did not we him, or know whether he was at home or not, nor nad she beard the accused and wife talk of the affair, witness never knew how the prisoner'* clothes were stained. John Taylor, sworn.?[ Witness is& colored man, and worked with Henry Watkins (who testified at the last examination) in getting the marble columns to tbe Capitol]?Witness on the night in question saw a gentleman pass where be was at work and take a seat on a stone. This was abont 4 o'clock, and he remained tfiere at six, when witness stopped work. The little girl, when witness left work, was play ing on the bank near by. Witness' attention was called to the man by bis being drunk. The man bad on a soldier's coat, dark pants and brown slouch hat, and wore moustaches, but no whiskers, lie appeared to have been lately shaved. Mr. Bradley stated that he had witnesses to prove that the accused never wore a mustache nor a slouch hat. J udge Fisher ordered the prisoner's discharged from custody; and he received the congratula tions of his many friends, who have refused to believe that he could be guilty of such an infamous crime. As usually happens when a person is arrested on a grave charge, a great many reports were atioat to the prejudice of the prisoner, to the effect that he had been guilty heretofore of imDroper acts of a similar character. We have endeavored to sift the truth of these reports, and are satisfied that they are either altogether groundless or tbat the accused has been con founded with some other person. It was diffi cult indeed to conceive that a young man so prepossessing in appearance and vouched for so respectably could be guilty of so revolting a deed, and all sincerely join in the gratification expressed by his relatives and friends, that his good name has been thus fully and honorably cleared by the action of the court. We mar add that some evidence has recently come to light indicating that the party guilty of the deed was a partially demented person, who had been seen In that neighborhood about the time of the deed, clad aa described oy some of the witnesses, and who had been known to exhibit perverted propensities designating him as not unlikely to be the offender in this case.
