The Arctic Expedition.?The conference
committee on the bill making an appropriation
ol one hundred thousand dollar* to aid in fitting
out an expedition of discovery to the Arctic
regions, agreed yesterday to make the amount
fifty thousand dollars. The bill allows the
President to select the commanders of theexi*
dition, and authorizes the Secretary of the
Navy to detail two vessels for its use.
The Appropriation Bills There is some
discussion as to whether the Senate will get
through with all necessary legislation before
the 15th instant, the time fixed for adjouHiment.
It appears that the appropriation bills are well
advanced, and arc in a much better condition
than is generally supposed, there being but lour
in the Senate not acted upon all of w!i! h an
be disposed of within two or three days, it ?o
Mich contest is made over them as is goin ?? on
over the Kiver and Harbor bill to-day.
Uwiciekcv Appropriation Bill In the
House this morning Mr. Dawes, trom the Com
mittee on Appropriations, reported a bill
making appropriations to pay deficiencies lor
the year ending June 3o. 1*70. The bill appro
priates about ?100,o0*>, ol which "1.000,000 i*
tor the ninth census. and about ?17,000 for the
Department of Justice recently created. The
otli?r appropriations are for paying the oodifv
ersoftht laws of the United States, salaries ol
members of Territorial Legislature*, and
vj.ri^us smaller items.

States. Mons. Paradol speaks and writes Eng
lish fluently. He is a widower, and a Paris coi
respomknt prophesies "that he will espmse
au Americaine, If only from the reason that the
Ambassador is so charming a person, and that
Yankee girls are to attractive."
The recent nomination* of Collector. Sub
Treasurer, Naval Offlcer, and United States
Attorney for New York. h? e not yet been re
ferred to the proper committees of the Senate,
but will be at the first executive -ession. There
is a good deal ot Speculation yet as to the result
in the case of Mr. Murphy, nominated Collec
tor. Both the friends aVid the enemies of this
gentleman are equally sanguine. The fact that
this is sn administration appointment gives it
strength, and will andoubtedl> nave ?.??-uider
abla weight with Senators.
The Isvbptioatioh of the CritRK: \ Bt -

The CapitoT. Prisoner, Pat. Wooiw The
House, this afternoon at 2 o'clock, took up the
case ot Patrick Woods, charged with assaulting
Congressman Porter, in Richmond, on the 3?th
of May last, and proceeded to discuss the re
port of the majority of the committee and tL-?
resolution sentencing him to be imprisoned for
three months in the Jail of this District, and
the rei?rt of the -.aiaorlty of the committee and
their resolution directing that Woods be re
turned to the Hustings Court in Richmond, to
be dealt with according to law. Judge Bing
ham had the floor, and advocated the passage
of the resolution of the majority of the com

A protect numerously signed by the mem.
bers of the Washington bar, without distinction
of party, was yestortay presented to the Senate
Judiciary Committee against the confirmation
ot J no. M. Oliver, recently nominated to be
Associate Justice ol fee Supreme Court of this
District.
The protest sets forth a want on the part of
the nominee ef the requisite legal qua lilt actions
for an eSdent discharge of the duties devolving
apon that branch of the court over which the
new judge will preside, and while disclaiming
any opposition to Mr. Oliver on any grounds
affecting hia personal character or integrity,
they respectfully aat forth that, so far as
the signers can ascertain, he has nev?r
studied law regularly, either under a practi
tioner or at a law school, and that he has not
been admitted to practice by any court.

On motion of Mr. Wilson, the report ot the

The river and harbor appropriation bill wa?
' then taken up.
Mr. Chandler said the Committee on C<<m
I m< rce bad decided to report this bill as it had
passed the House, without amendment No
doubt there are other appropriations which
might properly be made, but, under the cir
cumstances., the committee asked the Senate
to stand by them and pas* the bill without
amendment.
Mr. Stwver called attention to the tact'hat
while ?IKMl.OOO was appropriated for harbor ami
river improvement in the North, and #2,uoo.oi>o
in the W est,scarcely anything wa.-appropriated
lor^the South. He moved an appropriation of
#.,."00 to remove obstructions Town creek, n ar
Charleston. <
Mr. Uobertson called for the aves and noe-. a?
he w anted to see whether it was proposed to an
piopriate all the inonev for one section ol the
country and none for the other.
^ The amendment was agreed to-ayes 27, uavs
Mr. Sawyer then moved to provide for a -ur
vey and examination of obstructions in the
Charleston hart>or with a view to the removal
ol the same. Adopted.
Mr. A bbott moved an appropriation of * loo.; tun I
tor improvement of Cai*j Fear river. He said
only *35,000 was appropriated Tor the whole line
?1 ?ea-coast stretching from Wilmington to the
Mexican line, and not a single dollar appropri
ated for the great ports of Baltimore and New
1 ork. For Michigan alone *m;,00O are appro
priated; for Iowa, W0.W. The bill is Unfair
and unjust- The merchants ol Wilmington are
now much embarrassed by the shallow channel,
and they should haveAlu* relief.
Mr. Chandler said it was well known that
these olwtructienewere put in the*? southern
harbors during thfwar. We have no report
from the engineers on them, but it is provided
for new survey- to be made of all these harbors.
tbe re*u,t 01 U10** surveys was known,
the estimates could not be Bade, and It is U>?t
to make no appropriations in advance, ot
course if the Senate choos? to load down the
bill with amendments and kill it, they can do it
but he asked them to stand bv the oommittoe '
After further discussion, Mr. Chandler made
the point ot order that the amendment, makni"
an appropriation and not being recommei.Jel
oy any committee, could not be received.
'J* Chair (Mr. Drake) overruled the |>oint.
lor the reason that in his opinion the bill wi
not a general appropriation bill, and hence d.d
i ot came within the rule.
A'r. Sherman said the Ohio Legislature had
instructed him to move ar. appropriation for the
I-ouisv ille canal, but he thought it best not to
?ner amendments, and should vote against
18 was ? niere trif.e for the wotk

river, and removal of obstructions, from Rich
mond to Harrison's bar. and was proceeding to
advocate it, when Mr. Chandler appealed to
him not to advocate it, as now he would accent
anything that was ottered.
Mr. Sprague said the Southern harbors had
been neglected for the last ten years, and ai?
| ropUMtions were more necessary for them than
lor any other section
Mr. Morton suggested that it would be best to
wait until the survey was made, and then be
would be very glad to vote the required
amount. '
Mr. Johnson modified his amendment so as to
make the amount *100,000. when it was reject

) ??ved ?? appropriation of
?12,900 lor the widening and deepening ol the
? hip channel In the Patapeoo river leading to
the harbor of Baltimore. *
V? ?**<! this work bad been recommended
by the proper department, and the engineer's
estimates lor it had been made. The work
had been commenced by the city of Baltimore
and afterwards the State assisted, and as it was
an important public work, the assistance or the
I*?*'1' government had been solicited. The
work is now approaching completion, and Oen
Simpson recommends an appropriation ot
?1W ,000 for the work, but as onfv Wi.aS) ^, ?
used advantageously this year, he reoommen<l*
that amount only to be appropriated for the
present rear. The channel is aot now safe
for vessels under sail. No technical objec
tions can be raked to this appropriation
In view of the iaportaaoe ef the oommeroe of
Baltimore, asd its valae to the government, it
woald be wise and judicious to make this an wo
Station. From a statement given to him by
e collector of the port of Baltimore It ap
pears, that in 1866 94.MM.000 were collected of
duties on customs; in 1867, ?.1,798,000 in 1*;*

Mr. V. then spoke of the policy, which
seemed to prevail, ormaking large appropria

belonged to tbe wbole country, and it shookl
not be applied tor the benefit of one particular
section.
