The action of tbe Home thus for on the series of measures agreed upon In caucus last week, has been prompt and decisive. The hill defining the duties of tbe Clerk, reported from tbe Judici ary Committee to-day, through Judge Wilson, was lead, explained and passed without amend ment, by a vote of 182 to SI, all in about b*if aa Itenr. The bin provides that tbe Clerk shall not pltco upon tbe rolls of the noose, names of mem bers from any btate lately in rebellion, till the legislative Department of the Government has declared them entitled to representatives,and has recognized their Governments.

SECOND AUDITOB'S ACCOUNTS. The report of the Second Auditor, which jiat been public, exhibits that daring the dacat year ending Jose SOtb, 1804. 91,309 accounts w«.rc settled, embracing an expenditure of ?177,5'.C,131. the principal of which were: Tay department SItiXSOO.TIB.C3 Irolan aflatrs 8,8<1,256.00 » rdnance department 8.803,539.00 Mrdiral and hospital departments.. 17,3.17.439.00 An cats of bounty to discharged and deceased eotth-rs and offlceia 10,189.347.09 Collecting, drilling and organizing volunteers 5,258,038.00 ray of bounty to volunteers *nj reg ulars 10,129,917.00 In addition, various reports were prepared and transmitted during the fiscal year. The Auditor, In conclusion, s: ye: It appears from the forego ing exhibit that the settlements In Ibis office have been larger in Ibe aggregate than In any previous year, while the general business baa been very mnch Increased. About one-seventh of the entire clerical force bar been employed In making ex ami- nitons of rolls to answer inqui ries from the offices of the Paymaster Genera) and Commissioners of Pensions. This service, requiring great care, baa employed the labor of valuable derhs, who would otherwise Lave been engaged in ibe settlement of Paymas ters’ accounts. It was earnestly hoped and ex pected that upon the closing of the settlement of the claims ol discharged soldiers, a large portion of these clerks coaid be made available in for warding the settlement of Paymasters’ accounts, hr.ttbe passage of the additional bounty act of July last will render tbelr continued employment, in their present services, necessary for an in- Jeflniic pci iod, while it at the same time adds some two hundred thousand claims to be settl'd In this office. The sadden addition of 23,900 claims monthly to tlsonllnary receipts, with theneceasary correspondence andother clerical labor, taxes the power of the office to its utmost capacity, and has m.dcied its partial reorganizatlou indispensable. This has been made so far as It could be done un der existing laws, bnt to secure the proper de spatch ol business the office should now be thor oughly reorganized. rnorosED kew postal atuuxonrxsr.
