In the discussion of the Amnesty bill, Mr. Hill spoke two hoars In the most efleottve style, w AxmilT aBDlanded IT' the M and galleries.

Toe gentleman (Blaine), who is the acknowledged I leader of the Republican party in the nouevw-vwas a aspiring leader of the Bejeibllcan.- Arty. or toe country, nau, nowevrw wjuewnjerj wise, and seemed detortLlued thatk thi wounds, which were neiiirgrnoije re opened, and that tne passions, wnicn were healing, should be re-inflamed. He (Hill) wished the House to understand that he and his associates did not reciprocate either the purpose or the manifest desire or tne gen tleman, and while they felt it their impe ra ti re duty to rinuicate we irutu 01 History u remrds their section, they did not intend to say earthing calculated to aid thegentle- tuat work 01 criuiuativu miu re in elimination, and of keening ud tlie war by politicians, aiter brare men bare said that the) war shall end. The gentleman from Heine had made two points In his speech the masmanlmitv and grace of the Ke- lii 1 mIuM1I, f .4' ir .race ihj i ssrna- li srtyV1 W a tarn tit7 " iigatoetefrato. r 1 leret) aad sub- rebels.

If that were grace and mag nanimity, be prayed God to sare the-conn-try, in future, frota such rirtues. The gen tleman from Maine had made the grave in dictment against Mr. Davis, that he was guilty of the murders and crimes at Ander aonritle, and the gentleman (Blaine) stood before the country with his rery lame in peril if, after makingauch a charge, he failed to prove It. He (Hill) would take up the gentleman's propositions in their order. He hoped tnat no one wouiu uomoe tnat no one would imagine that e r aae to pass any eulogy on Mr. Davl. nrd on wnicn nis iminv uiubl i ti t mxi no. and his companion and fri mltted that record to the that would gire an impai honest posterity.

The charge against Mr. Darls was that bo was the deliberate, willful, scheming murderer or tnousanas 01 nis ieuow-i ens. Knowing the high character ant) station or the gentleman from Halne, be (Hill) bad supposed, when he beard that charge fall from his lips, that he had cer tainly made a recent a toned for the evidence Nothing bat a partial atonal Committee. To smluaivelr ex Darts testimony taken while too - genii em aa now on trial before the conn try was in pri&ll, milium a laailugi ami without the opportunity for a hearing. If there was any principle held sacred in the Anglo-Saxon mind, it -was that an Englishman was not to be condemned amUl he should be confronted with bis witnesses: but the testimony jrai imir m-m nub. but was mutilate mutilated most adroitly mutila e, racUt. he is a wonderful witness. Laughter. But the great questiou is, at last, wno was re sponsible for this state of things? and Hint is reallr the onlr imnortant Question. Mr. Hill went on to discuss the history of the exchange of prisoners, dwelling on tlie met that the cartel, wnicn was estauiisnea in 1862, was interrupted lit 1863, and that the Federal authority refused to continue the exchange. f At this point in the debate Mr. Hill's time expired, but, by unanimous consent, he was allowed to proceed without any lim itation as to time. I Mr. Blaine asked him whether he had not been a member of the Confederate senate? Hill replied that he bad been. Blaine then Droceeded to quote a resolution, ofi'ered in the Confederate Congress by Senator Hill. of Georgia, to the following effect: '-That every person pretending to be a soldier or officer of the United Suites who shall be captured on the soil of the Confederate States after the 1st of January ,1863 shall be presumed to have entered the territory of the Confederate States with intent to incite insorreettoa and to abet-omriier,," and -ebot Lmnioas satisfactory proof do adduced a tbe tested against the revival of this history of horror. - - , Garfield hoped the sanie fraternal fueling would follow the forty maimed union sol- j dier who had recently left their places' around the House. A discussion punned on tills point which iieveiopea me loiiowing ngures: in one- liundred and tilty-three subordinate posi tions in the last House, eighteen were filled by union soldiers, of the eighty-five posi tions in me present nouse, twenty-six were filled by union soldiers, this from the Dem ocratic side. The Republican side claims that In the bouse postofflce nine union sol diers were dismissed and their places filled by nine confederate soldiers.- '4- Uarncld proceeded to discuss the ex change of prisoners and gave a detailed his tory of the onuses of the suspension of the exchange.
