tCoattaued from oar Report of Yesterday,
Mr. Wilson spoke in defence of the ehar. '

Mr. Grimes thought the Senator from Ken
tuckr wes perhaDS not aware that the com
mittee that had charge of these investtgn-
uora, ana ne was one oi uoee c barged with
iho I nves titrations In regard to one of tha
rebel States, nerer had refused to take the
statements of any person suggested by any
member of the Senate or of tho Home of
Mr Williams said that In examlnlnff Into
the state of Florida, the committee hjd ex
amined every person suggested, and that no
suppression of -evidence or testimony had at
any time been sought to be made.
Mr, Johnson thought It his duty to say
that In tho reception of testimony he believed
the committee bad acted with fairness. This
he stated, though differing with the commit
tee. The amendment was then, after soma fnr.
ther dlssusslon, put to the rote and lost.
The original resolution to print ten thou
sand copies was then passed.
Mr. TrambT.lI then called np tbe civil
rights bill, the question being as to the oon
currenee of the Senate In tbe House amend
Mr. Dd-rls rose and snoke atralnit the rmi-
sage of the Mil, and proposed deferring fur
ther action on the bill till December.
Mr. Trumbull said It was out of order to
discuss the bill now. It had passed the
Senate before, and the question was simply
as to concurrence In the amendments made
by the House, all of which bad been con
currtd In thus far save the last.
Mr. Davit said his position was simply
that Congress had no constitutional power
now to pass these amendments or the bill It
self. lie thought that under our Constitu
tion the regulation of civil rights In a State
belongs exclusively to tbe States, and that
Congress had no right over them in the mak
ing of such regulations. There was. he said,
nothing In the Constitution that bestowed
such a right upon Congress. Congress had
no right to go into any State and declare
either equality or Inequality of civil rights.
Their so doing was pure consolidation.
Mr. uavts's amendment was rejected.
All the House amendments were finally
concurred In, and the bill, as amended and
passed by the House, now awaits the slgna
tare of the President.
Mr Fessenden then called np the bill

Pending the consideration of an amend
ment to the bill, the Senate adjourned,
The morning hour having expired, the bill
was laid over, and the House took up the
special order, namely; The bill to amend an
act entitled "An act to provide ways and
means to support the Qorernment and to pay
the interest on the public debt," better
known as the loan bill.
SThe bill provides thatefje act of March 3,
5, shall be extended and construed so as
to aulborlio tne secretary oi me .treasury,
at his discretion, to receire any Treasury
notes or other obligations issued under any
act of Congress, whether bearing Interest or
not. In exchange for any description of bonds
authorised by the act to which this Is an
amendment; and also to dispose of any de
scription of bonds authorised by said act,
either In the United States or elsewhere, to
such an amount, In such manner, and at such
rates as ne may tninic aarnaoie, tor iawim
money of the United States or for any Treas
ury notes or other repreientatlres of value
which have been or which may be issued
under any act of Congress, the proceeds
thereof to be used only for retiring Treasury
notes or other obligations Issued under any
aot of Congress; but nothing in this bill Is to
be so construed a$ to authorize any lnorease
of the public debt.
Mr. Morrill, Chairman of the Committee
of Ways and Means, moved to strike out the
concluding portion of the bill, which is in
these words; "Provided, That tbe bonds
which may be disposed of elsewhere than In
the United States may be made payable,
both principal and Interest, In the coin or
ourrenoy of the country In which they are
made payable, but shall not bear a rate of
Interest exceodlng five per cent, perannum."
Mr. Hulburd, of New York, addressed tbe
House In opposition to the bill. He opened
his remarks with a statement of the publlo
debt made by the Secretary of the Treasury
on Mar oh lit. He had seen, however, In the
dally papers, another statement relative to
tha nahlla debt from the Comptroller of the
Currency, and he would ask Mr. Hooper, of
tne tJommtliee on nana ana uanaing, u ue
could give any Information to the House
relative to the discrepancy which existed be
tween tbe two statements.
Mr. Hooper, of Massachusetts, sold that
in refcrenoe to the statement made by the
Secretary of the Treasury on March 1, he
would say mat mere was in tne .treasury at
that time $55, 000,000 Weoin and $60,000,000
In currency, making a total of $116,000,000.
Now, the letter of tbe Comptroller referred
to states that the statement of the Secretary
of the Treasury Is Inexcusably erroneous,
and states, am on est other Items, that the
Secretary h" omitted to giro the amount yf

troller says, is 9zb,uuu,uuu. iiaviog seen
thi !"" the Committee of Ways and
Means hare appointed a sub-committee to
visit the Treasury Department to Investigate
the alleged discrepancy. 'and to see whether
It) had any actual existence. We learned,
said Mr. II., that tbe Secretary's statement
of the publlo debt was correct. The amount

cluded In the $1 15,000,000 reported to be In
the Treasury by the Secretary on the 1st of
March. This letter of the Comptroller made
It appear that there were $170,000,000 In the
Treasury, and he goes on to show that some
retired notes and 7.30 bonds ought to hare
been Included In the Secretary's exhibit.
Then the Comptroller adds $15,000,000 to
that statement, as the difference between
gold and currency, should tbe Secretary sell
the $65,000,000 of gold at the present pre
mium. But, al the Secretary had not sold
the gold, the premium should not be added

llo debt, made by the Secretary of the Treas
ury, wa, he repeated, entirely correct. He
had Included the $28, 000; 000 now In the na
tional banks, and he had not sold tbe gold
now In the Treasury. The result of the In
vestigation of the sub-committee of Ways and
Means was that there were $115,000,000 In

his speech, taking strong" ground agalnit

additional powers whatcrer. Ife contended

the House in an elaborate speech on the fi
nancial policy of the Qorernment. He eon
tended that tbe Interests of both capital and
labor required a fixed standard of values.
lie alluded to ine garnering excitement
against exempting United States bonds from
taxation, and sold that It could only be quit
eted by sending more of them abroad, and
by providing a permanent sinking fund. He
advocated the Immediate completion of the
Faclfio railroad, as the best means of devel
oping our material resources. He was for
setting apart the proceeds of our mines as a
sinking fund, which, he said, would cancel
our debt In twenty years. He favored the
issue or bonds omy to pay debts already con
tracted. The debt polioy should cease, and
we should pay as we go. He would pay all
tbe annual expenses of the Qorernment, ex
cept those for interest, by duties upon im
ports. He would pay the Interest from the
proceeds of the Internal rerenue tax, which,
under the policy he proposed, would be
annually reduced, and finally, within twenty
years, entirely abolished.
During his speech, Mr. Wentworfh read
the resolution passed by tho House on De
cember 18, 1865, In which by an almost
unanimous rote, the policy of the Secretary
of the Treasury was endorsed, and the co
operation or me House in that policy
promised. This, sold Mr. W,, was when
members were fresh from their constituents,
and before the lobbyists, male and female,
had arrived In Washington. Laughter.j
He proceeded to endorse the financial coarse
of the Secretary of the Treasury, and alluded
to the efforts of the Comptroller of the Cur
rency to thwart the policy of his superior io
his office by publishing a letter and personal
ly conferring with the lobbyists and with
members on this floor. In his opinion, when
a subordinate differed from his superior he
ought to resign.
Mr. Price, of Iowa, hoped that the centle-
man would not make such serious ch antra
against a trusted publlo officer who was not
nare to do neara in ms own aeience.
Mr. Went worth. Where has bo gone ?
Great laughter.j I certainly saw him here
a lew unnutes ago. (itenewoa langnter.j
Mr. Price replied that the gentleman
knew very well that the Comptroller of the
Currency could not 10 heard on this floor.
Mr. Wentworth said that if his Pickwick
Ian' friend would write a resolution for a com
mittee to investigate the charges against the
Comptroller, he (Mr. W.J would offer it at
the close of his speech. He urged giving
the Secretary a good strong bill and he
would soon return to specie payments. The
shoddyltes and the gamblers were the par
ties who were belaboring Congress not to give
the Secretary any power. They were so
strong on this floor a few weeks ago that the
Speaker bad to enforce the rules of the Houso
and drive them from this temple of liberty,
as the Saviour of mankind drove their fathers
from the temple.
Mr. Kasion, of Iowa, by leare of Mr. Went
worth, read a letter showing that the mer
cantile Interests of the country were In favor
of the policy pursued by Secretary McCul
loch. Mr. Wentworth, In concluding, said that
he was in favor of giving to the Secretary of
tbe Treasury the fullest power. Jie nau tne
fullest confidence In his ability, and he wanted
Congress to Invest him with powers In our
financial difficulties equal to thoie with which
we had sent Gen. Grant to plant the flag of
tbe Union upon tne sou oi toe rebellion.
At the conclusion of Mr. Wentworth's re
marks, which occupied more than two hours
In tne delivery, me jiouse adjourned.

jtir. um. mormon (colored) wan appolntea
chairman, and Mr. Calhoun (white) ai Mer4
tary. Mr. J. W7 Dungy (a runaway slave
from Hampton some years aero) arose and aoV
dressed the audience, and in a few sensible
remarks demonstrated to tbe audience that
ther were Urine? too thickly on tha Panlm

Ho entreated the colored people present to
lose no time In reflecting bpon the subject,

which they were paying for rent alone on the .ejpsl
land which ther now cultivate, and oon- I
eluded by remarking that the Homestead
bill of 1862 guaranteed them 160 acres of
Government lands. He fas followed by
Major General Miles, commanding tbo post)
Brigadier General Armstrong, formerly col
onel of the 8th United States colored troops,
lately appointed superintendent of the Ninth
District of the Freedmen's Bureaut Colonel
James Curry, post commmlssary, and Dr.
Joyce, of Illinois. The purport of their
speecnes was essentially tne same: tne im
mense benefits to be reaped by the colored
population' of the Peninsula emigrating' to
Florida, where thousands of acres of Govern
ment lands were to be found, well watered,
rertlle and hignly productive and wnere
even the most indolent eould obtain an ex
istence. The colored audience, under the influence
of these glowing speeches, In whloh happy
homes, surrounded by every comfort and
blessing, were graphically pictured to their
Imagination, began to exhibit the utmost en
thusiasm, and the most perfect harmony
would hare prevailed, had not a disturbing
element 'made Us appearance In the person
or a Air. uamn repper, a lawyer, oirtorioiar,
who. In opposition to tbe purposes and ob
jects of the Florida emigration movement,
nas been working nard to counteract, in con
nection with a few other dissent! nc adherents.
the progress already made In enlisting the
sympathies of the poor crowded population
of the Peninsula In Us bebalf. lie took, the
platform erected for the occasion, and not
withstanding the remonstrances of the or
ganizers of the meeting, proceeded at some
lengtn to rc.uie tne arguments ana asser
tions made by the previous speakers, and
suooeeded towards tbe end of his discourse
In enlisting the entire sympathy of the col
ored people present In his Tlews. He advo
cated the expediency of the colored residents
of the Peninsula remaining where they are,
as in a utile wbtie tne wnole country of the
Peninsula would be theirs by Congressional
legislation. He ridiculed tbe Idea of emi
gration to Florida as being impracticable,
and said it wouia ne iraugm wun a great
deal of evil consequenoe, and spoke of the
uncertainty of protection and assistance be
fog rendered them after they reached there.
Mr. Pepper was followed by n colored Dr.
Dane, of Norfolk, whose speech was even
more bltttr, and even vituperate against the ,.
previous speakers. He denounced in strong
terms the officers who were engaged In the
project, and not only seconded the assertions
and opinions adranced by Mr. Pepper, but
discanted quite at length upon the Freed
men's Bureau as Injurious to the true Inter
ests of the black man. He called upon tbe
whole audience then assembled to treat with
the utmost contempt and disgust the Idea of
an emigration to Florida, as bettering their
condition. Tho meeting, Jest at this Junc
ture, assumed a rather turbulent appear
ance. Loud cheers were given for Messrs.
Bane and Pepper, and long and continued
hisses for Florida.
Deeming It useless to remain longer, and
as all efforts to quiet the two colored orators
were of no avail, Msj. Gen. Miles suggested
to the delegation which accompanied him tho
propriety of departing, which they did forth
with, headed by Mr. Dungy, the first speaker
ef the meeting. Thus terminates, for the
present, the efforts of the military-authorities
and others Interested in tbe morement
to induce the immense population scattered
all over the Peninsula, between Old Point
and Yorktown, to seek some other more
favorable and less thickly settled region. It
Is estimated that about twenty-fire thousand
negroes are Inhabiting the country men
tioned, and to whom are monthly distributed
nearly sixty thousand rations by tbe Com
missary Department at this post. They are
principally In charge oCthe Freedmen's Bu
reau, but a good proportion or them hare
small lots of ground on which tbey raise
enough vegetables, do., to provide subsist
once for themselves and families.
The larger proportion of them, howerer,
roam at will over the country, almost en
tirely destitute of employment, and depend
ent on Government rations Issued them for
the means wherewith to sustain life. The
alarming state which their condition has of
late assumed has been tha principal reason
which has stirred up the Freedmen's Bureau
and other Government officers to start the
Florida emigration movement among the ne
