This Information was iccolved with a laigo grain of allowance , and the old \cturaiis did not believe th.it such an olfiontciy rnnld bo Imposed at the capital of the nation , which Is frequented by cveiy people on the globe , but a committee was appointed to ascertain the truth of the icpoit. The build- ini ? , a large bilck. structure , located near the a ilcultuial department , and now and handsome , Is Mulshed , but the Interior Is not quite completed.

In Iho senate to day , after the disposal of routine business of the moinlng , Mr. lUlmunds said asonoof the committees of the senate had gone to Now Yoik to-day , and ns another Impoitant com mittee had considerable woik to do , ho be lieved public business would bo best sub s'1 ! ved by adjournment from this atteinoon to .Monday.

Mr. Teller submitted an amendment to the 1'ustlc's resolution lujraullng the lefitsal of tlio assistant tieasurer at New Orkans to Issue sllverceitllicates in cxchanco for silver dollar * . The amendment dliccta the com mittee on finance to Inqulio Into the loss of money alleged to have occmicd In the New Orleans sub-treasuiy and whether Mich loss occunod In connection with the exchange of silver certificates lor silver coin. Tim amendment was oidered pi luted. I'mcccdlng to the calendar , the senate look up bills In thcli order. Some bills for pilvatc lellcf wcic disposed of. of.The The bill to regulate promotions of West 1'oint graduates was icached. On this some discussion aiosc. Mr. Sow ell. In reply to an Inquiry of Mr. Plumb , said this was the firbt je < < r for a long time when there would bo more lieutenants graduated from West Point than theio would be vacancies for In the aimy. After considerable debate the bill passe I as reported from the committee. At a o'clock the education bill was laid ho foio tlio senate , and Mi. Morgan took llio floor on It. The bill. Mr. Morgan said , was a bill to create ofliccs and elaborate the machtuciy of the government. It was a bill to tax the hon est , haid working man In older to educate the children ot thu drunken , loafniL' vaga bonds , who would not woik lor their fami lies. If from tlio C0,000,000 people in the United States weic to bo deducted all the deadheads , dcadbeats auduou-pioducois | , there would bo about 20.000,000 , who would have to pay tax-cs to carry out the piovisions of the bill. The bill itself would be equiva lent to tax S'l per capita on these payois , and by the time all the officers wcie appoint ed foi the administration of this scheme of benevolence , and all the cleiks appointed that would bo ncce aiy to Investigate the accounts of the thhtj-eight states ana ten teiiltories affected by the bill , It would bo found that the tax per capita would be S10 Instead of three. If United States senators wcie men who plowed the Holds orvvoiked the smiths , and paid taxes out of tlio sweat of their blow , Mr. Morgan could have moie icspcct for them when voting away the money of one man to educate the children of another. Tlio con stitutional gionnd for the bill , Mi. Morgan continued , was haid to be found in the "gen eral wcllaie" cl.uiso ot tlio preamble of the constitution. Such an application of that clause simply meant that you could pull dow n the man that got up by his own o.xertioA In order to put up thodiunkcn loafer that would not exeit himself. The best people in the United States vvero those who , in , tha backwoods , in the fear of God and having icspect for good order and the morals of society , had biought tip around their own footstools and hearth stones honest , sincere , dllligout and faith ful sous and diUigbteis. Mr. Moigan charac terized Mr. Blairs idea as ono Involving the light of congicss to educate the childicn ot the several states without the consent of tlio .states. Mr. Blair interposed to saythat he regarded the prlmaiy duty of education to rest with the parents , but inasmuch as education was Indispensable of the existence of a liee gov ernment , If the parents , whether from in ability or disinclination , failed In the pcrloi- mauco of duty , that dutv fell to the states and on our republic. If the state proper and parent botli tailed , then it became the duty of the republic to educate the child , slnco the child would tro a citi/en not only of tlio state but of the United States. This , however , was a powci that should be exeiciscd only in the last icsort. Mr. Call asked Mr. Morgan If he denied the light of the United States to uiako a donation to a state lor any piuposc. Mr. Moigan replied tliat no could conceive of such a case. This point was debated at length. Dlf the bill was to bo passed , however. Mr. Moigan wanted to see It amended , and .sug gested certain amendments , one of which was agreed to , making the fiscal jear of the United States tlio year contemplated by the bill , and excluding fiom thu monies liable to bo used for the pin poses of the bill all moneys drawn from loans , customs or Inteinal levenuo , or liom the postal or consular service , or the patent office. Mr. Moigan drew a bioad dis tinction between monies deilvcd liom taxa tion aim monies deiiveil fiom sales ot public lands , which constituted a tiust lor all the people of the United States , and maintained that if money was to bo given to u Mate It bliould como Irom the moceeds of those lands. At this point Mi. Morgan yielded for an executive session , after which the senate ad join ned until Monday. Jlonsc. WASHINGTON , Feb. 11. Mi. Bluglmin asked leave tto iiitioduce a bill granting a psnsion of 2,000 per annum lo tlio widow of General Hancock , but Mr. Beach objected. Mr. Heed of Maine offuicd a icsolutlou , modifying the older making tlio FiU-.Iohn Porter bill the continued special older fiom to-day until next Thuiuday , so as to piovldo that the bill shall not bo coiihideied until alter the second inoinini : hourot each day. Mr. Kandall endeavored to have It fnithcr amcndcil , f > o that the movlous question should bo oidered on Tuesday instead of Thuisday , but Mr. Kced's lesolutlon passed. Air. Wollbornc , fiom the committu on In dian affairs , icpoited the Indian appropria tions bill , and it was icleiicd to the commit tee o thow'hole. Mr. Itogcrrf. liom Iho committed on judici al y. reported the bill confeirlng civil juiib- dlctlon on ceitaln casesaiislng in the Indian teirltoiy on the United States eouits which exercise criminal ImIsdiction over the teni- tory.

Placed on the house calendar. In the bccond moinlug hour Mr. Adams of Illinois , on behalf of the committee on bank- lug and cuircncy , called up the bill to unable national banking associations to iiivic.iso their capital stock and to change their names or location , The bill was passed. Mr. Adams oiffeied a motion to reconsldci and lay that motion on the table , but limit action was not taken , The house , at 'J o'clock , went Into com mittee of the whole on the FlU-John Porter bill. bill.Tho The debate was opened by Mr. Haynes of Nuw Hampshlioi In binipoit of the bill. The stioncest piojudlcu which ho had over entci- tallied had been auralnst Potter , but it had disappeared when ho piocecdcd to examine the case. He did not snaio in the estimate of Pope enteilalned by many ol Poitei's f i lends , but ho believed that If any other of Pope's generals had been In Porter's place , and had acted as Porter had acted , tliero would never have been a court maitlal , and no union general of that campaign would have suffered for more than twenty years a htlgma worse than death. It had been 1'oiler's dlbie&pectful and inexcusable allu sions to Pope that had singled him out as an object of suspicion and as an object of revenge. Porter had been ono of the giowleis , and his punishment had been out of all inopor- tlon to his offense. Botli Lincoln ami Giant at ono time had equally believed In the jus tice of Poitei'fl sentence , but Giant , when the oppoitunlty had been given < oi a calm , dis passionate mviewot the case , had pioelaimed the Injustice of the veidlct and became the eaiuest champion of Portei'a cause , and he was a bold man who dares Impugn the mill taryjudemcnt of U. S. Grant. If Lincoln had lived ho ( Haynes ) believed that Lincoln and Grant would have stood together In a demand for justice to Klt/-loliu Porter. Mr. Steele took the floor In opposition lethe the bill , and premised his speech with the re mark , "What In thunder aio wo here for ? Wh > ; are wo di ciissini : Kltr-John Poitcr ? ' ' This question ho ' aid had boon asked bv a number of members of the house , and at least one democrat had added that tlio democrats wcro golnc to vote for It any how. llo ( Steele ) believed that this was true , but ho would not be deterred fiom giving icasoiis why ho would vote asralnst It. Popes famous older , ho said , should and could have been easllv oboyed. If Jackson matched that night could not Porter have also marched ? Theio was not a soldier In the house but know that it was Porter's duty to obey thu older. After some further debate Ihe committee. lose and the house adjourned.

All soils of schemes for admitting : thcteiiitoiy as a whole and for dividing it by otlici lines than that ol the forty-sixth parallel have been offered. The powcilul statesman , William M.
