Lane, ot Raneas, introduced a bill to enable the people of Colorado to form astata government. Referred to the Commi'.tee on Territories. Mr. HendrickB moved to take np the> House joint resolution in reference to adjournment for the holidays. It was taken up an?i passed; ao when the Senate adjourns on^Tnnr?day nex?, it adjourns to met t on Thursday, January a, imi. Mr. Wilson called up tbe Senate joint reso lution to free the wive* and children of colored soldiers, pending the ilucuseion of which the S?nate aojonrned. II?. ??? ??G"?? Mr. Stevens, from the Committee of Ways and Means, reported a bill that th? act to pro vide internal revenue for the support of the gi *-? ro nient, approved J une iO^aWl. be amend ed in the tiny-nub section bv atnklng out the word February wherever It occur?", and in aerting In lieu thereof the word January. The second section provides tbat in addition to the duty now imposed by law, all spirits of do rn? stic production held for sale on the first of January, li=65, ebMl be eubject to a duty of r.t y cents per gallon, which passed with ? Debt amendments. - The House went into Committee of the Whole on tbes/ate of the Union. Mr. ispaldtng reviewed some of the promi nent prints in tbe President's annual message, which be regarded as of a dignified and patri otic character. In relation to slavery, he said they should wipe out the foul blot; and during bis speech remarked he bad no disposition to pro-eke hostilities with Great Britain, but he did not look on tbat Power as a friend to -the United States. She was greatly ar.ibitioas to be the leader of nation?, by means of her su premacy on the ccean, and was prominently eelbsh in all the appurtenances to commerce and trade. This Government has no occasion to fear Great Britain, for, vef th all our wealth, the loyal people of the United States are at this menseut. with a great rebellion on hand more than a march for her. < >nr policy should be coninually to gird oa outaarmor, and erect fortifications and depots on the shores of our inh -d seas. 1 he committee rose and the House adjourned. FtRAVciAL?The New York Post says : The good news from the army his* to-day produced a more profound impression in Wall street than on Saturday. Gold has fallen Ul ti en per cent, and wbilee ? en tbe soundest rail read stocks are much depressed, all Kinne of Guvernme&t securities are in active demand, at advancing rates Gold opened at 811, and after falling to'21t.??, rose to ?16. Tbe loan market is dull, as ie usual at this ????-on The abundance of capital in quest of investment on call is still accumnlating. At 7 per cent there is no difficulty in obtaining loans on miscellaneous securities. Commercial paper is .?ui. tat :&???.. Tbe New York Commercial Advertiser says. The trade in dry-goods was quiet during last ?reek, asnsual at the middle of December." Tae attentit ? ot tbe domestic trade is occupied in preparations tor the spring trade, and sales are confined almost entirely to light transactions in etapl?- goods. Tbe domestic market is very firm. Woolen fabrics are decidedly stronger, and the prospect Is that spring goods will open much higher than a year ago. Manufacturers contend tbat the price of woolens has not yet eqsailed the rise in gold, and that they bave a right to demand a higher figure for tbelr goods. Be this as it may, the demand appears to he so fully op to the supply as to enable the pro ducers to realize full prices. The indications are that the importations of woolen goods will be much below those of last year, leaving so much more of the consumption to be supplied by our own mills. Brown sheetings are dull but very firm at gOc. tor standards. Medium grades are scarce and much wanted. Bleached goods are also firmer, and in more demand. Some holders ask higher per yard, but without sah'S. New York Mills are quo ted 65e.: Ballon'? well known make is selling at 35c. 1er %, and IGc. tor 4 4. Drills are quiet at 30c. tor standards. Corset jeans are higher. Naumkeag are quo ted4!2i?o. Cotton flannels are more wanted. Hamilton F. are quoted &7%c, and Naumkeag sr^c. There are very few stripes and ticks en hand, and orlos are in some cases Se. higher. There Is a light steady demand for pritrs. but chiefly tor dark goods. The prices for Spring styles have not been generally fixed. AUCTION SALES. S ALE OP CONDEMNED MULES. Chief . a?t? .: v-tkb- Orpins, moa, l Dkpot ?e Was&inuto!?,} WA = niFGTON.
