THE NATIONAL REPUBLICAN, THURSDAY MORNING, APRIL 2G, 1866.
1' gjHttounl gcpMiTim Vortilnnton City, . C. VT. J. MUKTAOII k CO., rUBLISHEItS. 8. P. nANSCOM, EDITOR. THURSDAY MORSINO :AFRIL It, 1868. HUFFRAGE IN TOE DINTOICT OF COIXJII1IA. The bill which passed tho House nearly two months slnct, proTiding universal suf frage for the District of Colombia, has been quietly laid away In the files of one of the Senate committees, and has not as yet been acted upon. It Is rumored by tho corre spondents of various papers that the subject U soon to bo called up, when the House bill will be approved by the Senate. The reason given for this spasmodic revival of Interest In the welfare of the colored man is to dis cover who Is the "best friend" of tho negro race. The President,, in his remarks to the black people of this District a few days ago, said they would find out in time "who ncrc their real friends." The Senate, being ex ceedingly anxious to have this all-important matter settled, proposes, as wo arc told by those in the confidence of that august body, to put through the most obnoxious presentaf tion of the suffrage question that could be devised, with the expectation that Tue Pres ident will veto it, so that then they can ex claim, "There, we told you so; now see who are your friends!" Before this melancholy game of using an unfortunate race for party ends and to make party capital is carried out to its fatal re sults, w e wish to put in on honest plea for the real welfare, advancement, and rights of tho deserving colored population of this District. AVe arc most decidedly of the opinion that nothing will prove so injurious to this part of our population as to make them the " pup pets" of political shows and intrigues. No true friend of the negroes would ever desire to sec them tossed about like a shuttlecock from one political battledore to another j yet that is precisely what their pre-eminent champions seek to do in tho Senate of the United States. We are, as we have ever been, in favor of extending suffrage to the black people here, on the conditions which The President of the United States has said he would advocate for that people in Tennes see: first, to those who can read and write.mak ing a basis of intelligence ; second, those who have ten ed in the armies of the nation, mak ing the basis of patriotism j and third, those who have certain real or personal possessions, making a basis of property. This is qualified or limited suffrage, as distinct from unncrsal suffrage. AVe are unhesitatingly in favor of the former, nnd as unequivocally opposed to the latter. AVe hold the elective franchiso to be a trust delegated by tho compact of society to the person, and not a right inherent in the individual. AVe hold, also, that it can only be safely delegated to tho male population, of a prescribed age, and with the incidents or qualifications above mentioned ; and wc think as a matter of justice there should be no discrimination between races, and no dis tinction because of dnersity in color. Man hood with capacity, and that capacity to be determined by its possessions, its'scrv ice, or its intelligence, is our suffrage platform. At the same time, wc deny the right of Congress to touch, meddle with, or regulate this mat ter in the States. To do so is an assumption of authority without a shadow of sanction, and an interference with tho reserved rights of communities unjustifiable as a principle and injurious as a policy. But Congress has jk; unquestioned power, and we concede the riglu, to make laws for this District. It .has the rlgtit iC enfranchise the black people in It. Now, knowing "" exists among the white people of this totality Z Dlttcr and as " seems to us, an unwise prejudice Bghlns' ""? grant of suffrage to the colored people; .knowing there is a great doubt in all por tions of the country against this extension, nnd that out of the twentj.fivc State, which Congress permits to'le in this Union but one fifth recognizo this privilege for the negro, knowing that a vast majority of the whole people are rooted In their opposition to universal or unqualified suffrage; and know ing that The President stands by the fuuda mental idea that the organic laws made for a people should bo originated or accepted by those who aro to live under and obey tluin, we ask, in the utmost candor, if tho professed friends or the black race in Congress should not strive to adopt some measure which might bestow this great boon of franchise upon the non-voting tlms which would not only receive tho sanction of The Priiident and tho efficacious weight or his personal and public influence, and the gmeral assent of the people of America, but at the same time be a little objectionable as possible to the older citi zens of tle District by whose Bide this i Usa is tu vote, and with whom they arc to Ine and find employment f That such a measure uu Ik framed, we hate no doubt whatenr. If, in stead of the unstatesmanlike and foolish policy of demanding all that they might want or taking nothing. Congress should be content to obtain for the colored people what they can get, it would be a comparatively easy matter to arrive at an amicable and satisfactory ar rangement. And we suggest tl'at if Con gress will pass a bill limiting suffrage to all futuro voters on the basis which The Pres idext has often promulgated in conversation and dispatches, and submit the proposition to the peoplo of the District, allowing all to vote upon it, both Kfott and MucA.who would exer. cisetheprivilegoofsuffrageifthebillwcrelaw, wo have every reason to believe that it would not only rocelvo the willing signature of TnE Presiden-t, hut its adoption by our citizens would be hailed by him with gratification. Such a plan supposes that every colored male who can read and write; every colored soldier who helps to fight our battles; every colored property-holder, would have a voice in determining the organic law. This class would number thousands; and with the whites friendly to qualified suffrage would, In our Judgment, carry the day for extended suf frage. Such a bill should bo so drawn as to prevent a repetition of the shameful election farco which took place some time past, and should in the strictest manner prohibit the participation in the election of those who had in the ranks of an Infamous rebellion endeav ored to destroy the Government of the Uni ted States. To such a plan wc would not only give our cordial support through the columns of this paper, but would use every individual effort to carry it through at the polls. If defeated at the first trial wo would not abandon the contest; but strive, by enlighten ing the public mind and christianizing the pub lic sentiment, to repeat the struggle until the victory was won. AVe believe that tho col orcil population which makes such a large portion of our numbers, in the main is de serving, orderly and industrious. AVo wish to see them advanced, and wc ask Congress to forget for a moment its savage warfare on the Executive; to yield something of its in tense radicalism; to surrender its chimeras for substantial legislation and make one effort that shall honestly aid and benefit our col ored citizens. If it pursues the headlong course upon which it has entered, it wdl prove an ineffectual labor and tho black man wdl suffer. If it follows our advice, though its Utopian dream may not be realized, yeta step forward will bo taken; the hearty co operation of The President may be gained, and the race which has been so long in bond age, and through the centuries of modern time has been placed beyond the pale ol civilization will have a partial if not a perfect recognition. Wc appeal, then, to Congress, for the sake of humanity, in order to win a triumph for American progress, and to assist in lifting higher in the scale of civilization an injured class of our fellow-citizens, to deal with this question so that it may become a law instead of rushing it forward to certain defeat. Extracts from Private Correspond tue on Political Sablecte. The following extract from a private letter Udted New Haven, Conn., April 22, 1866, re lating to the present political revolution in that State, is from one of tho leading mem bers of the national Union party in Connec ticut, who was a delegate to the national conventions which nominated Lincoln and II am lis at Chicago and Intolx and John hoy at IJaltimore : " Too speak of oar Hertford meeting I till joa it wu a good oo & move la the right direction.

Official news bas beea received here from El Paso dsl Norte to the 30th ultimo, with the official re ports of several important victories over the Impe rial forces. The city of Chihuahua was captured by storm by the Liberal forces under General Tebaias, Gov ernor of the State, on the 25th of March, after an. obstinate resistance of tbe garrison, of whom the greater portion were made prisoners, and the entire material of war fell Into tbe bands of the Liberals. The city of Hidalgo del Parrel was also oaptured by assault, on the 22d of the same month, by the Liberal forces under the command of Colonel Vas qcei, who routed entirely the Imperial garrison of tbe place. The occupation of the city of Chihuahua and the victory of Dldalgo has restored to the possession of the Liberal authorities the whole of tbe State or Chihuahua, and has opened the way for tbe Na tional Government again to take up Its March to wards the city of Mexico. President Juares was to .leave El Paso for the city of Chihuahua In a few days. An important victory has also been gained In the State of Coabulla, where a considerable force of Imperialists, composed In a great part of soldiers of the foreign legion, were entirely routed and their commander, a French officer, killed.

Pending discussion the morning hour expired, and the unfinished business of yesterday, being tbe bill to provide for the admission of t' e State of Colorado Into the Union, was taken up, upon which Mr. Dool title, of Wisconsin, was sntltled to tbe floor. Mr. DoolltUe said tbe Senator from Nevada Mr. Nye bad been pleieed yesterday to allude to him as nfls re presenting the people of Wisconsin, and as disobeying the Instructions of the Legislature. It was not his purpose at this time to reply at length to these allegations at some other time he might claim the attention of the Senate to do so. When, on tbe 4th of March, 1883, be entered on his second term In tbls Senate, he took a solemn oath to sup port the Constitution of the United States, and made no promise to obey the behests or follow the opinions of any set of men who might be elected to me legislature, as to misrepresenting ine people of Wisconsin, the Union convention of Wisconsin list fall adopted the same platform upon which I stood ana now standi ana upon lb at piatrorm or f rtnclplsa the same men who compose this Legisla ture, who now attempt to Instruct me, were electa J, and could not have been elected upon any other, la that eonventlon two propositions one to give nefcro suffrage, and tbe other to Impose universal suffrage as a condition of admission upon the South ern States were laid upon the table. The Union party, with the platform there adopted, went before the poo, le, and elected their Governor by ten thou sand majority and what became of negro suffrage? It was defeated by ten thousand majority. I tell Senators here, as I told the people of Wisconsin, that it will not do You cannot force it upon the people. It Is the rock upon which you will split try It ss soon as you pleaie. If you part on It, it will break you to pieces; If It falls on you, It will grind jo a to powder But, Mr President, as I stated be. f jre, It Is not ray intention to speak at any length on tbti subject, but to the one immediately before tbe Senate. I seree with much that has been said by my friend from Massachusetts, but my objections do not rest upon tbe lad mat uoiorsao does net con fsr universal suffrage, believing that Is a mettir to be disposed of by the States themselves, and over which Congress has no control. If Colorado saw fit to confer female suffrage, In my opinion that would be no cause for refusing her admission. My objections rest upon other grounds altogether. Air. u men reviewed tbe status ot uoioraao as to population and resources Her whole population was not equal to that of the little county of Wis consin in which he (Mr. D lived. Air no we wr. rresiacm, tue action oi toe legislature and tfce action of tbe eonventlon of Wisconsin has been reterrea to to-day and vaster day and on several previous occasions, atd In a manner wmen seems to neoiami some auenuon from myself. Mr. President, I am not here to say that my colleague Is not justified In his own Judg ment for each of the votes which he has given here but when be goes further than that, and asserts that be Is Justified by the action or the U't State convention, or any oonventlon which assembled In Wlscoosin I think be asserts too much. There was not, as I read. In tbe action of that convention anything which cold juxtlfy either of the two votes which my colleague has given I am not prepared to speak positively. My colleague should be able to speak better Us was a member of Ibat convention, and chairman of the committee which reported the resolutions He saw a great deal of that convention, and was a great part of It, but I cannot help thinking that Its proceedings afford no Justification for his Totes. I have examined the resolutions, and can find nothing la them to war rant the course taken by my colleague, to Justify tbe votes which be has out here la defiance of tho instructions of the Legislature He had found a resolution, however, wbloh he would beg to read Mr II then read one of the resolutions passed by the convention aforesaid, and said he thought bis colleague would acknowledge that he was tbe author of that resolution, and in it there is authority for every proposition wbloh has been advanced here and which has been denounced as radical and revolutionary My colleague asserts that be hai ad roc a ted giving suffrage to the colored race, but I think I may safely say that be has never advocated it with tbe ability of whleh be was capable. He ex pre tied the opinion last fall that It was Itnpolltlo to bring It as an issue In the Union party, t differed from him then, and hold tbe same opldlon now with all the light of the recent election before me. The Hu Ereme Court of Wisoonaln has decided that they are a right to vote, and they did vote at the re oeot election Mr. Johnson Mr. President, I merely wish to ask what question Is now before the Senate Tbe Chair Tbe question Is. Shall the Senate re consider tbe rote by which the State of Colorado was dented admission into me union f" Mr Johnson, I can't exactly see the point, then, of the Senator's remarks. Mr. Howe. I don't wonder that tbe Senator from Maryland is unable to see the point. The debate has taken an extended ranee, and I think I am at liberty to justify tbe action of the Legislature of H IICOUIIQ Mr. DoolltUe said he would reply to tbe ques tions raised by his colleague when the resolutions, said to have been paued by the Legislature, should arrive Mr. Lane, of Indiana sail he had no Intention of partlcipatlniT in this debate, but tbe Senator from Jiachujts Mr Sumner had yesterday alluded to tbe ehai?tir of a friend of hie Mr. L,'eof twsnty years' standing uv. Evans, or Colorado in such a manner as demanded soolS notice at his hands He then proceeded to defend Gov Evans from the charges made la tbe riportof tbe commit te to Investigate tbe conduct of the war Tbe Cheyenne Indians wero not a friendly tribe, as bas been alleged, but were at war with the Uni ted Stales, Qoreronr Evans was not In the Terri tory at the time at the isaiiicre of these InJiaos, and had no connection with it whatever, Tbe Sen ator from Massachusetts bad departs 1 from hi usual courtesy ana pruaence ia anotutrinsiaqse, be bad Insinuated that whispers were uttered that their votes were neodel lie (Mr L) had never wblsperel since Lis wooing days He advocated tbe admission of Colorado because her State gor ernmant was organised on a loyal basis. We did need their votes, and before this oonteit was settled we should need more voter We wanted loyal votes to save the life of this nation, wantel more than these two votes i fur the word "white," he would much prefer that It was not In the consti tution, would much prefer that it was not In tbe constitution of any State, but be would not eialude Colorado because of it. He would not exclude the rebel States because tbey did not confer negro suf frage, he would admit tboni If they woul 1 disfran chise their rebel voters. He looked forward to the day when the mighty march of public opinion, more terrible than an army with banners, would erase tbe word white from the constitution of every State In this glorbus Union) but be was utterly opposed to Imposing a condition upon Colorado which bad never Wore been staoted or any Territory seeking admission, Mr. Williams advocated tbe admission of Colo rado. When the Union was formed New York contained ten times as much population as Rhode Island, and Pennsylvania ten times as ranch as Delaware) yet they were alt allowed an equal repre sentation la this body. He bad mlsjuJged all tbe signs of the times If the day was far distant when tbe eleetlre franchise would be exercised by all men without distinction of race or color There were good and sufficient reasons why negro suffrage should be required of the rebel States, fur tbe blacks being In the maloritT there and loyal to tbe Union, would Insure tbe perpetuity of tbe Government and keep down tbe disorganising and rebellious dais. TJo UOWn tue U.IVrfUI4Ug UV louwuwu vimsj. hv nob rsuon, howsTsr, cilitii la the can pf Colo rado, where blacks wsrs few end the population en tirely toyaL Copgress bad Invited the people to form a State government. Tbe enabilug act had not ceased, to exist, and the only objection that Congress could urge was a deficiency of population, and on this point precedents had been e tablished, which ought not to be lost sight of. Mr Hendricks said tf the question as to the ad mission of a new State depended upon the fertility of ber valley, the richness of her mines, or the beauty of her mountains, be would be compelled to admit that the Senator from Nevada Mr. Nye had made a forcible argument) but If It depended upon the reBuIaritv attending- the formation of the State governmeut and the sufficiency of population, he was or ids opinion tnei t&e senator naa not made avervstrona polet, "Tbe people of Colorado bal by a vote of two to one rejected tbe cons tltutlon formed nnder the enabling act. Mr. U. Ihen gave an account of the proceedings of tbe eonventlon whleh formed the present constitution and spoke of tbe Irregularity thereof. He then referred to ihe sparse population, contending that It had materially decreased. He should, as readily as any Senator on this floor, welcome new Senators who come here representing a population to Justify their admission, but be could not vote to give the representatives of fifteen thousand people tbe same weight as the representatives of the thirteen hundred thousand people of Indiana. Mr. Stewart advocated the claims of Colorado to admission. Mr. Howard said If bs bad been present when this bill was up before be should hive voted for II. There had been two reasons adduced on this floor wbv Colorado should not be admitted, one that the population was Insufficient, and another that unU venal suffrage was not allowed. Neither of these reasons were sufficient to Induce btm to vote sgalnst t&e biu. Air. li. contended mat tbe population bad not decreased. Mr. Edmunds said the principal objection which Induced him to oppose the admission of this State at this time was found rather in the provisions of the Constitution than the Irregularity attending Its formation, and when he said that this objection grew out of that much -talked -of word, white, be trusted be would not be accused of misrepresenting Vermont. That State, even before she was a mem ber of this Union, bad never tolerated anyils tlnctlons In political equality on account of race. We have entire power on this subject, and It Is our duty to exercise it. It appeals to our sense of tbe right and our memory of what bas Just passed. As tbe Senator from Massachusetts said. It Is no use to say that this thlog bas never been done be fore. We are now entering upon a new era. For myself, I am a democrat In the fullest sense of the term, as I nndsrstand It. I am for the politics! equality of all men, and yet I am asked to give my vote ajratnst that principle. l can dot, yieiu to it lor a temporary advantage, Can we not send this constitution back to the people, and by tbe 1st or December, u toey come nere wun a constitu tion that we can sanction, they can be admitted. Mr. Sumner returned bis thanks to tbe Senator from Vermont for tbe noble stand taken by him In defense of human rights. He thought the Senate bad better sleep upon It, and therefore moved to adjourn. The Chair put the motion to adjourn, which was decided In tke negative Mr. Sumner only voting 7Mr. Creswell said he bad voted against this bill before, and but for the fact that be Intended to change hlavote, would not trouble the Senate wltb any remarks. His trouble bad been not the re sources of tbe State or tbe Irregularity attending the formation orber constitution, but in the per manence of ber population. Tbe pamphlet of Ales i re trans ata ibanee naa dispelled nis aouots, and he was now prepared to vote for her admission. He thought tbe statement of the Senator from Mas sachusetts unwarrantable that two more votes were to be gained to the party on this side of the cham ber by tbe admission of the representatives of this State. So long ts be Mr. C.J represented his State Maryland on this floor, he proposed to give no vote which was not in accordance with tbe dic tates of bis duty and conscience. Mr. Johnson said be objected to tbe admission of Colorado, because she had not sufficient population. When the Union was formed it was objected to giv ing the smaller States an equal representation with the larger Rates on the ground that It was not re publican, and It was only consented to when It be came apparent that the confederation would not be formed otherwise. Tbe larger States bad yielded this to tbe smaller ones, but It would not have been acceded had It been supposed that States with so small a population should seek admission here oa equal terms. Mr. Johnson gave way to Mr. Grimes, who -moved to adjourn. Air enerman aemanuea me yeas an i nays on ine motion, which being ordered, ft was decided In tbe nesrative. by a vole or 21 to J 4. Mr Johnson resumed If a proposition had been made In the Constitutional Convention that States were thereafter to be admitted with such a population as Colorado, It would not have received the sanction of a single member of the Convention. Tbe largest estimate that has been made of this population la 35,000, of whom 0,000 are of Mexi can origin, not knowing oar langusge and having no sympathy In eommon with us. Deducting these, and assuming, what Is known to be the fact, that people emigrate to these mining regions without their families, and com part njr the vote Riven at the ratification of tbe constitution, and you cannot make out more than 16,000 Tbe people of this District number 100,000, and yet they have no rep resentatives nere ue are tneir representatives, and also tbe representatives of the people who set tle In the Territories, until they are In a condition to form a State government. The admission or States was a high function. It was not to termi nate with tbe admission of Colorada. He objected to tbe admission oi the ground that It wu not re ubllcan, 'not oa tbe idea or tbe Senator from assaehusetts, Mr. Sumner, or the Senator from Vermont, Mr. tsdmunds, but because It was not republican to give equal weight to tbts limited pop ulation or 15,000 with populations of one, two, or three millions. Senators who voted for It would set a precedent whleh they would afterward regret. Suppose the southern St.tes were all In, four new States eould be made out of Teias, tsn or more out or Georgia, an I Virginia might demand as many as she pleased. What was to prevent it ? And what was to become or New Kngland ? If wealth was to constitute States, fifty might be made out or tho city or New York. They all knew how these conventions were got up. Uent'emen were anxious to come to Congress, but the great body of tbe people took no Interest In the matterj tbey preferred to remain In a territo rial condition until tbey were able to assume tbe burdens of a State government Mr. Sumner knew thu nothing he could say would alter tbe opinion of the Senate, but be warned them against the step they were now taking. The question wu then taken ou the motion to ronnnstder which resulted aa follows : YssMassrs Chandler, Clark, Conness, Cragtn, Creswell, Howard, Howe, KIrkwood, Lane of Indi ana, Nye, Pomeroy, Hatusay, Sherman, Sprague, Stewart, Trumbull, Van Winkle.

A number of Senators announced pairs So tbe motion to reconsider was agreed to, and tbe Chair stated that the bill was now on Its second reading, and open to amendment Mr. Sumner offered tho following amendment I'rovtd!, That this act shall not take efieot ex cept with the fundamental condition that within the State there shall be no denial of tbe elective franchise or any otber right on account of race or color) aad al persons shall be equal before the law; and the people of the Territory shall, by a major ity of the voters at a publlo meeting, publicly con veoed by th Governor or the Territory, declare (heir uient to this fundamsL! condition and the (fovcfBfcs sljtJI transmit to the President or 1 Unltel Statu an titthsqtls statement or suoh as sent whenever tbe same shall be glrsot npon the receipt whereof he shall, by proclamation, announce the fact; whereupon, without any further proceed lug In Congress, tbls act shall take effect jhe amendment was rejected by nays, 37 yeas, Messrs Edmunds, Foster, Qrlmes, Howe, Morgan, Poland, and Sumner V The bill was then read the third time and passed by yeas, 19, nays, 13 Tbe Senate then adjourneJ, at ten minutes to HOUSE OP BEPIU!8I!NTATIVE8 ITfBLlMlVlRV BISI1EIS, The Speiker Uld before the House a report from B U Pre nob, CoiamlsMloner of PuUio llalldlng, stating that In accordance with tbe order of the House he bad caused U be p-lnjed upon two of the panels of the celling of tbe bull of tbe House tbe escutcheons of lbs States of Nevada and West Vir ginia.

He asked that It should be referral to the Committee on tbe Whole, with the understanding that It should be taken up on Thurs day, May 3d, after tbe morning hour) and It was so ordered. Mr. Morrill also offered a resolution provldloc for tbe printing or 10,000 extra eoples or the bill me resolution wu reierred to tbe Committee on Printing. K. BLA1SV AKD MB, COBKLHfO BiVB iff IXPLAXA . TI0B. Mr. Blaine, of Me . rose to a nersonal explana tion. It bad always been bis Impression that, while members of the House were at nerfect liberty to alter their remarks u reported in the Qiobet when loose remans were oi a srenerai enaraeter. vet is was a point ef honor, when tbe remarks were of a Krsonai nature, or aseeud otber members of tbe nose, to leave them to Senear In tbe form in which tbey were taken down by tbe reporters. Bat am aeu ueen aurpruea to notice, in reaaing ine Glut of to-day. that the remarks made yesterday by the gentleman from New York, Mr. Conkllng, naa oeen aiteraa inrougnoui- ana on application to tbe proper parties be bad beea Informed that the alterations had been made bv tbe BtnUeman him self, and were, la fact, Interpolated In tbe reporter's manuscript In Mr, Conkllng'! own handwriting Ue would not particularise the many changes which were raaae, nut be would merely can tbe attention of the House to one of these alterations. He Mr. B 1 had alluded to tbe lentlemen's re marks as cheap wsgger," In view or the fact that tbe gentleman had repeatedly avowed bli responsi bility for whet be said "here or elsewhere." This expression 'here or elsewhere," was a technical phrase, very well understood to be the langusge of the dnelht, and be thooght It might very properly be characterised u "cheap swagger." But, in the published Globe report, tbe words "here or elsewhere1 did not appear at all, but were altered so as to read "at all times and In all places.' thus entirely destroying the point of his Mr. It's alia- sion. Mr. Conkl nt. of New York, aald In renW. that he fully understood Ihe general rule wblcb pre vailed In the House In regard to gentlemen alter ing the official reports, and be hoped that It wu unnecessary or mm to add tbal be wu aalte u incapable of any violation of the rules of propriety sou ueoorum m mat respect, as tue memoerirom Maine claimed te be. He denied entirely that in any respect or la any part, the reporter's notes had been so altered by him as to change at all the po sition of any member of tbe House frhtther he had participated In the debate or not. The nly object and effect of tbe alterations bad been to reject tbe surplusage of language and to prune down the diffusiveness Incidental to all ex temporaneous remarks. What be had said yester day wu said In commenting upon the public acts of a publlo officer and he bad a perfect right to make those comments. Tbe member from Maine, with frivolous Impertinence, had put Into the debate an Imputation that he, Mr. C., In denoonelng the administration of General Fry, bad been actuated by personal spite, and that he wu skulking behind tbe constitutional privileges or debate to defame upon this floor a man who was absent and who could say nothing In his own defence. Not only had the member from Maine made a statement thus frivol ously impertinent and personal to b!m, Mr, C,l but had proceeded to make a statement in which be was altogether mistaken. In replying, he Mr. O j had stlgmatircd tbe latter statement u latse, and bad avowed, u he would stilt avow, his readi ness to hold himself responsible "here or else where" for anything be might hare said In regard to tho bead of the Provost Marshal's Bureau or any other official. It wu a cheap mode of elawtg off from an Impertinent and ungentlemanly attuk for tbe member from Maine to have Interpreted the words "here or elsewhere' u hinting at a due), and be Mr. O would here say that bis kaowledge of the member would never have allowed him. to ex pect to get from him any satisfaction of that kind. Mr. Conkllng then explained that he bad slmnly Lsubstltuted the words " at all times and places" fur "here or elsewhere," but denied that this or any otber slight alteration which he had made, In any manner lessened bli responllbllity for his words or had tbe effect of placing any member ot the House In a false position. And he would throw back to the member tbe Imputation to which that member bad given utterance. Tbe time was far hence, he trusted, when be should sit at the feet of tbe mem ber from Maine to learn from him the rules or pro priety and the principles or honor. Mr. Blaine briefly replied, making an Ironical allusion to the brilliant reputation for eo urate which the gentleman from New York had gained In ine loirty-rerenio uongress Mr Conkllng, to bis rejoinder, alluding to the estimation lo which he .held the gentleman from lueine, said mat ne leu it due, no less to himself Mhan to the House, to say that he owed an apology to bis fellow-members for harlnr occnnled so much or their tlms In his remark a on this matter. MB. MOBB1LL BXPOSBB A VAHEEB TBICK OP TBE CARUDUV1. Mr Morrill, from the Committee on Ways and Means reported " A bill Imposing a duty on lire animals." Tbe bill provides that "on and after the passage of this act there shall be loried, col lected and paid on all horses, mules, cattle, sheep, and live animals, a duty of twenty per cent, ad tojortm "J lr. Morrill proccued to explain that since the expiration of the reciprocity Treaty there had been no duty upon the Importation of live animals, and that, taking advantage of this fact, the Can, dlans, with a touch of Yankee ingenuity, had re sorted to tbe exptdlent or smuggling wool with Im punity, by driving thslr flocks across the line, shearing them on this side, and then driving them back sgatn. Aa tbs matter was one which de manded Immediate legislation, and to wbloh no reasonable objection could be urged, he would ask that the bill should be put uponlts paissge. The bill wss accordingly taken up and pused THE RBDBL COTTOK LOAV. Mr. Kasson, or Iowa, offered a resolution, wbloh was adopted, requesting the President to commu nicate to the House any negotiations that bare been entered Into by the Executive Department In respect to the rebel debt known u "the Cotton Loan,' or any other species or rebel Indebtedness OVBBCROWPISO BUIOBAMT VESSELS. Mr Randall, of Pennsylvania, offered a resolu tion requesting tbe Committee on Commerce to In quire and report what legislation la necessary to prevent vessels from foreign porta carrying an un due proportion of pissengers, considering their ac commodations, and also to provlds precautions against the Introduction of cholera Into tbe coun try by vessels arriving from foreign ports. The resolution wu ngreed to. HUES'" A L DEKEBCB OP MOtTAKA. Mr. Smith, of Kentucky, Introduced a bill to provide arms and ammunition for the defence of the Inhabitants of Montana Territory) which wu referred to the Committee on tbe Militia. THE PACiriO BAlLnoiD BILL. The nouse then resumed the consideration of the unfinished buslnesa of tbe evening session or yester day, tbe pending question being on tbe reception of the report made by Mr. Price, or Indiana, chair man of the Committee on the Pacific Railroad, who bad reported, for the second time, the "bill to se cure the speedy construction of the Northern Pa cific Uall road and Telegrnjh Line, and to seoure to ' Palled States tbe use of tbe same for postal, military and other purposes." JJr, Washburne, of Illinois, having withdrawn bis objection fo tbe reception of the report Mr. Price prooteded to address t(.e House at somelsogth In esplanallonof tbe committee's ac tion on the bill, lie said that, the bill being now before tbe House, be trusted that It would reoelre a full and attentive consideration and If, after a discussion of Its merits, Its expediency should not become apparent to tbe House, be, for one, would not complain If It were voted down Mr. Wentwortb, or Illinois, said that there was a vast difference between being in fatdr of a rail road and belog In favor of a particular s6beme for the construction or that railroad Por his own part, ho always distrusted any bill that brought wfth It suoh a lobby as tb,Is did. Everybody wu a?rtcl that there ought Jo be a rsllroad to tbe Pa 01001 and if the matter were la the haot of about twenty practical and capable railroad men, bent upon the accomplishment of the project, he would be as much In favor of It u anybody, but be wanted to know something more about this hill under consideration before he would giro It his support. Who wsre the corporators the aotlre men of tbe road r lie wanted to know who wu Its president, and bow near be lives to the Canada line. Mr. WoodbrlJge, of Vermont, (Interrupting,-) said that tbe president of tbe railroad wu John Gregory Smith, a gentleman for whose standing and Integrity be was ready to vouch la the fullest msnnsr. Mr, Wentworth (resuming) said that lie wanted to know more about the bill. He wanted to get at tbe facts, and bs wanted them officially reported. He then went on to elaborate his objections to the blU on the i core of Iti ladcflolts character, It did not even Indicate, he said, what amount of money It might draw from tbe public treasury. In his opinion, the bill as It stood ought to go to the Com mittee on Publle Lands, and be would more that it should be referred te that committee. Us did not desire, however, to out oil discussion In regard to ucn reierenntj, out, vu ia oantrery, pre erred mat the subject should receive the fullest debate. He would not, therefore, press a vote upon his motion. The bill was farther dljoasssd at namM-.! length by Messrs. Henderson, of Orsgon, and De Isno and Spalding, of Ohio, the two last-named gentleman making strong speeches In opposition to tht MIL Mr. Woodbrtdgt. nf Vermont, add rested the nouse In support oftho bill. Tbe meuare, he eon tended, would have to be adopted now or never. Hereafter, when tbe southern Statea become repre sented In Congress, their Repreeentatlres would urge the claims of the other route, through Texas, and endless opposition to the Northern Pacific rail road might be expected. He also called attention to the fact that unless tbls bill were pasted the wnni ti . ongmai onarier oi ine company would be forfeited. r Mr. Kelley. of Pennsylvania, wanted la know whether there wu any possibility of getting rid of me ioodj eonnrcica vim mis Dili, Mr. Wsntworth, of Illinois, speaking In a sever tone of voice. 1 tnaolred whether by that Interre. atory the gentle rain from Pennsylvania meant. citner oireciiy orinairectiy, to give tae uouse to nndsrstand that he Mr. W.J was la nay manner Interested la tht fate of the bill now before the House. Mr. Kelley rose to reply. Mr. Stevens, or Pennsylvania. Mr. Sneaker T eall both these gentlemen to order. If this thing goes on. It will laid our friends Into a bloody duel. Great laughter. jar. woodhriage resumed ue floor In support of tbe bill, and, at tbe conclusion of his remarks, At 4 20 p m . the House adjourned.
