The rebellion which waevraredbja portion of the iwwds rf ih* Urjxd states against the ptowriy constituted aathoi tiles uf the Govern sr.n)i thereof. In the most violent and revolting foim. but whose organized and armed lorccs have cow been overcome, did In Its revolutionary pro gress deprive the people ol the several por clous of the United Slates, heretofore represented In Congress, as the States of Virginia, North Car olina. bouth Carolina. LonPtaca, Georgia. Flor ida, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas and Texas, of all civil government, and so disturbed their political relations with the Union a* to deprive them ol the right tn an per in the Congress of the United b’atcs In the persons of Senators and Kcpn-scntaiives; and as they can be restored to their political relation* to the Talon only by the consent of the lav-nuking power 01 the United States ; and Wueueas, It would be improper lor cotmnian tc«s thus deprived of civil government, and whose poh'.kal relation* to the Government of the T(died Mate? are so disturbed, to participate tn tin- election 01 President and Vice President of the United bialc?; therefore. Bf I' fnac'rd by Ok Stnatt and Smite o/Jtspre t'lita Ires it, Congrea atteir.hUl, That noul the law-giving power of the United states shall have di'dnied the several portions nr the United States toretofo.e rep:escnlcd In Congress,as tbe States of Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Uncial* anr.Ccorgla, Florida. Atabiaa.MU«is«!ppi,Atkan* Kit ap«l Tens, restored to (beir political relations to iLc Union, they shall not bo be deemed entitled to r> procD'aticn ta the Electoral College for the choice of Urcsidcnlof the United States, and no electoral vote shall be received or coanted from them csceptta each may so declared restored to political fallow In the Union, and cniUU-d *o representation in Congress- Mr. WUjSoS explained tbe provisions of the hUI. Tbe committee had followed the precedent cstabllabrd bv the Thlity-elghth Congress. In Us , joint resolution It declared tbe States, named hav- i in« rebelled against the United States, were ii such a cnudttioo on the ?th of Novembar, ISri, { that no valid election for President and Vice Pr;s- \ idem was held therein, and therefore that they were r.o» entitled to representation in the Else* i toral College; bet the operation ot thatresolnt'on wa* confined to tbe election of ig6l, and Ibe par* { pose of the present bill was to make a similar | law to apply to ail future elections, until the ; Elates shall have been restored to their political I relations in the Union. Mr, HNClv—Bol at the time that resolution | was adopted, were we not In tha midst of war, end ate we not cow in Ibe midst of peace? Mr. WILSON--We 'rere at that time in the midst ol war. and we think the enactor that wa* npon those commnuUies exist even to-day. We hold tbit tbe rebellion deprived thoje comma lies of all civil government, and being deprived ©fall civil government, they cannot be permitted to participate lu elections for President and Vice Prccideit until tier shall have been provided with a civil coverniotmtby Congress and declared re* stored to tbeir political relations in tbe Union. Mr. HALE, of N. Y„ mud that wlthont express ing an opinion on the manta of the bill, he did Uaoe that action npon It would not be forced with out glsinp the members an opportunity to ex amine and discos* It. The question was certainly a grave one, as grave as any that had yet occupied the attention oiihw Con cress, and be was not by any means satisfied that tbe case was ao clear npon precedent as It would teem from the argument of the from lowa. 11 did not ncccssarilv follow tha< what was done by Concrete when the rebellion was actually raging, would be a proper precedent for tbe action of Congress now. Mr. WILSON said he had no desire to press ac tion upon tbe hill, and npon his motion it was postponed, and made the special order for Thurs day next, when discussion will b; allowed. Mr. LAWUENcE reported a bill 10 repeal cer tain parts of tbe act approved April SJCh, 17M, for the punirbment o' certain dimes against the United Stab's. Tbe act of 1790, be said, provided that no person should be prosecuted, tried orpua ished for treason or other capital otlbcces against the United states, uni-as an Indictment for the ofience should be found by a Grand Jury within three years after U Is alleged jo have bron committed, and tbe purpose of :bc bill now reported, was to repeal last pro vision, which. If U was permuted to continue In Jorcc, would soon be equivalent to a general par don and amnesty tor all treasonable acta commit ted during tbe rebellion. The onlj questions that could ctDc upon tbe passage of inU bill were, first, as to its expediency; and, *econd. as to the right of Congress to pass such aU ’. The House bad alreadv determined U was not expedient to declare general pardons and amnesty by repealing smne-tj act oo the first day of the present res f ion. and be had no Uouht of the power and right of Con-, tess io repeat those portions of the act of JTA', which, if col repealed, would soon no equiv alent tn such declaration. - Mr. I s i EVENS, of Pern . obtained the floor, amt said: Mr. Sneaker, 1 approach wahgrealdls tri>t all bills of this Und, wmch are evidently brought lorwsrd forthe purpose of arcertumng how we ran convict men whom we cannot convict under the laws existing when their crimes were commitu-d. 1 do not believe that It be cotni's this ration. J do nol lie lir<e it {■ safr tor ns to undertake to per* lane br «rlth wc can, or may be able to. punbt, "however guilty, that could not be punished under the laws existing when lac crimes wer, commuted. Could we dom change oarCon eiiimioiueo ae to change the place of trial of trail on* to say that the venue might be changed, and tbat they should b.* tried by jurors enmmored from another bailiwick! The Con stitution and our laws provide very carelullr that especially io the cose of treason, the party charged with crime must be tried where ibe nvcit act was committed, la a district pre viously ascertaint.d. Any law. which nrofe?*ea to change that, to any respect, looks -to me so much like an attempt to commit Judicial murder that I bare always been afraid to attempt. It. I am afi aid that the traitors lathe Son’h,iftnel under our existing Constitution and laws will not. out- of them be ccmicted. I should never at tempt to try them for treason. I wonl-1 try them as belligerent* under the laws of nations and laws ol war. Mr. LAWRENCE, of Ohio—Wo have no reason to expect of the Administration any such trial. Mr. bTEVENS—I am station what 1 would do if] were the Adminl tration. Jl.saghter.l Nos although I wonld not discourage trial- for treason. 1 menuor this (o show that 1 am convinced that none of tiu-se traitors can ever be convicted of ttcason under our present ConafttaUan ami laws, and yet 1 would rather let every man of them go unpum-Lcd forever than to make a law row l.v which they could be punished. 1 thnk our (loverr ment would be endangered lu its fu ture existence,, tn its character before the world, be conduct of that kind, more than it would be by endunnr the evil After inrlhcr debate, and without taking the qnoiior. adjourned.

Secretary of State and Comp troller. by yonr direction, nave held for safo keep ing six hundred and eighteen thousand two bun dled and fifty dollars, in United States bonds, known a* our school funds, and treated at a sacred fund by yon. I call yonr legislation there to. Last week. for the first lime fa my life, 1 learned that tbe Treaanrer of the State bad loaned this Bind to one of the Memphis banks, without consultation with any of tbe Stale officials at the State capital, and even with out their knowledge. Tho Treaanrer demanded tbe fund from tbe Comptroller, who held II for .safe keeping in a good and sufficient sate, is a fire-pioof bnflding. claiming it under a law you eoaefadatthe last session, requiring the Treas urer to take charge of Ibis Identical fund. Yonr law is cluer exceedingly lame, or its provision* looking to the eaxo keeping of this sacred fund have not been compiled with, and therefore I invite your earliest ard vigilant attention to this subject. 1 lulendno reflection on the bank, as all banks have a right to borrow and lend money on their legitimate operations: bat 1 protest against tbe secrecy maintained by tbe Treaanrer, who. It seems, loaned the fond so long ago as the ofa of June, JSC6. During the lest fortv-eigbi boars 1 have con versed folly with the Treasurer, and his reason tor the transfer Is, that tne fund was not secure where it waa. There were three National Banks in tbe dly with which it coaid have been divided out, but u it for yon, gentlemen, who famed this money over to the Treasurer, to took after it* safetv. lam atone prompted by a high sense ol dnty'in bringing this subject before you to-day.

It waa the Inauguration ol the abating season, and a thousand hearts beat happily. The announcement that the ice was ready came before the skaters were quite ready, and an un wonted hurry and bustle of preparation marked the day. Tbo inviting words f ‘carnival,” "splen did ice," "grandopening,” stood oat in promi nent display in the advertising columns of the : morning papers, a pleasant intimation that the season of seasons had In very deed arrived. The weather moderated a little daring the day, which was a fortunate circumstance, as the keen hisst which ushered in the reign of winter would have Interfered considerably with Iho attendance at the Park. The West Side waa the great centre of at traction yesterday. The Washington Park has alivarr been one of the most popular winter resorts, and this T e *r It succeeded tn stealing a march upon Ita contemporaries ol the eoulb and North Divisions. To be the first on tho ice, to open the hall, was the one thing de elrab’c. and it was not a matter of surprise there fore that the West bide Itink and the Washington Skating Park u ere both crowded last evening with the most brilliant array that was ever reflected by the Ice. The Rink was thrown open for the first time lut eight. There was so Immense attendance. The street care were crowded sil tbe evening, ss they have not been for tweivc months past. And It Is unnecessary to add that every body enjoyed a gay and festive time. This couimodions building, a description of wfcich has already been published In UioTmßUTvx, Is one of the finest in the world, and will undoubt eJlv be extensively patronised daring the present season It has skating accommodationa for fire thousand persons. Is brilliantly lighted up with two hundred gas Jets. well heated, aud everything in perfect order tor the convenience acd comfort «>f the visitor*. A large cloak room I'provided. In which ladles and gentlemen can disencumber themselves of thaw outer garments, and an excel* leuircfteshment hall has been fitted up and plen* tlfnlly supplied with all tbe delicacies, coffee, tea, oy'ters. cakes and cigars. The Kink was open to spectators flee last even ing. A large number of con-skaicra assembled, v. bile the Ice was well covered by a Joyous merry crowd cf oldandvctmg, who seemed to have no other business in life than to akim and whirl like troops of swallows over the shining surface. Dean's Light Guard Band discoursed most excel* lent music to the merry crowd, and the festival was kept up till a late boor. All felt that It was rood for them to be there. The Washington Park opened under no less favorable auspices. Tbe ice was In splendid condition, the mnslc was good, and the attendance was large. What more could be desired? Ihe Inauguration ; carnival was a festival to be remembered. At eight o’clock the Great Western Light Guard tent forth a peal of music from the centre of the Park and toe sport began. There was an immense turnout or staters as well as spectators. Tbe bitter cold wind did not appear la the slight est degree to retard the enjoyment of tbe lint night's sport. Everything was in rood order and music and mirth resounded over the pond. Tn* Ctsrnat Pang.—This fkvonte resort will We opened for the season this evening. The Park Las been flooded ana a fine sheet of ice has formed. Additional accommodations have been provided lor the visitors this year and the mana* ger has left ooihlng undone to secure a continu ance of that patronage which has been so liberally bestowed on the. Central for the past eight sca«ocs. Tnr Wasun Arisen Runt has been complete ly refitted and famished since last season, and row presents every attraction to Ihe vhltor.

Illuminated with calcium lights, and seasoned with music by the Great Western Band. , The opening of the skating season Interfered to a considerable extent with the attendance at the various pUces cf amusement m the city. The booto w as rather ehm both at the Museum and at McVlcktv’s, while the Opera Uouse showed a visi ble falling off. notwithstanding the atti action of *• lw«h.” The lower pm of the bouse was almost frill, but the upper dress circle and the galleries shoved an amy of empty s-av*.

Some disappointment was felt at httsi Western’s Impersonation of the Jewess, after seeing her truly great rendition of Lady Label. In the latter she was a< near fault less as careful rtndv and natural adaptation to the part could make her. In Leah she seemed to strain her mercies to the utmost, and yet tell short of the mark. She Is not quite eqnalto the part which has made the name ot Bateman famous Throughout the world. In tbe first, second and UlUq acts, she was tolerably successful, and some oasrageswere rendered with singular force and beauty. In the scene where Leah and her betrothed exchange vows of fidelity, and agree to for sake borne, kindred. aH. for each other, she uaa exceedingly touching, and completely en listed tbe sympathies of the audience. That speech In which she mges her lover to flee with her across the wll Jerries*, haply to find the prom ised land, reads like a floe strain of mnslc. It was In the fourth act, »n that Impassioned scene where Leah, baring round out the perfidy of her Christian lover, denounces and curses him, that Sll*s Western discovered her limitations. The whole scene was powerfully overstrained. It re- Quirts something more thsn mere physical effort to porpay adequately the Infuriate wraih of such a jUM*Westeni was poorly supported. With the exception of Mr. Raymond as “Ludwig,” and Mr. T. llamlltoa, whose rendition of “Nathan," the »pc-tale Jew, was excellent, there was not one deserving of commendation. Sir.

The Board of Public Works on the Contract—That Body Proposes to Ur dertake the Work. Tbe Proposition negatived br (he Coun cil—The Board Directed to Sue upon the Bond* of Fox. How ard ft Walker, A special meeting of the Common Council was held last evening, for the consideration of (he re port of the Board of Public Works In relation to the enlargement of the Illinois and Michigan Caral. The meeting was presided over by Hla Honor the Mayor. There were present Aldermen Knick erbocker, Carter, Wicker, Barrett, Wllmarth, Ilatch. W allwork, Moore, Schuler, Kacn. Talcott, Holden, Ackhoft Pronlfoot, Frauen, Engel, Sh ckford, kaweoo. Clark and O'Sullivan, The following report waa read: The Board ot Public Works on the X9th of last month, addressed a report to yonr honorable body, setting forth that sectional* to 57 Inclusive, of the Illinois and Michigan Cunal bad been for feited by Fox ft Howard, and that to the opinion o( tbe Board, ai-d especially tn order to prevent great lose of time, it waa neowaary for the city to undertake the prosecution of the work on said section, under section 10, of Um Charier Amend ment of February 15th, 18C5, at least to the ex tent of cansing to be constructed during the present winter, not exceeding six dredges with a complete outfit of all machinery necessary to work the dredges to mcir full capacity. As the request was not acted on Immediately the Board, sebeeqnestiy to making the report re ferred to above, publicly advertised for proposals in accordance with the suggestions of aome of the members of yottr honorable body, who under your instructions had been in conference with the Board, aa yonreommllttce, to consider whar steps bed beet bo taken to forward the work on the canal, and who bad a desire that first of all there should be made a trial by advertising for proposal* aa to the prices tor which the work could be let. Tbe bids received under this notice were opened yesterday. A statement of the bids is herewith submitted. As will be observed, the lowest for tbe whole work la toon than double the price stipulated in the Fox, Howard ft Walker contract. The Board considered all these proposals too { high, uid bare accordingly rejected them. We believe that the city, if the proposals were ac cepted, wonld be compelled to pay much more than the coat of dotng the work. . •the Board now desire that aotvelhloe may be dos<- so that all of next Besson may not be loat for the want of machinery* and that dorihg the winter tome portion of the work may he prosecuted by. the Board, in order particolarly that trhoß a * sta ble time comet lor again inviting proposals It shall be knojrn what the coarscler of the work to be <*cne is, and wbat will be a fair price (hr U, and also to wbat extent It will be practicable to continue the work throughout the wbo.e season, Inlhcsnmmerbydiedgea, and when navigation is suspended, by workmen, with wbat help can be obtained Irora steam machinery. K la very desirable thru action should be taken by the Council as speedily as possible, and we therefor* again request that the Board may be authorised to procure dredaea and prosecute some portion of tbe work to the extent that may be necessary tolallytestlta character. lie Board do not differ from tbe Connell as to the opinion that 11 Is better as a rule that the pub lic works should be executed by contract rather than by workmen acting under the direction of its officers, and in what la now asked to be done by tbe Connell, wc aim only at sating the city from wbat seems to ns to be an extravagant price to pay for the work to be done, and to prevent delay in Ha prosecution. Wo append tbe order already sibrnlttad, changed somewhat, so as to authorise the testing of tbe excavations by employing workmen. Re spectfully submitted, 3. G. Q aroma, Fnxo. Ijn, O. J. Robs, Wx. Oooonto, H- B. Mason, Board of Public Works. Resolution authorizing the Board of Pablic Works to procure six drcdres, and whatever machinery and materials may be necee-ary for the construction of a portion of the Illinois and Mich igan Canal. Wuraxas, It has been reported by Ibe Board of Public Works that. In their opinion, the construc tion of a ponton of sections seventeen to thirty seven. Inclnatve, of tbelllmols ft Michigan Canal, can be better done at the present time, by tbe Board Itself, witr.ont tbe Intervention of a con contractor, and for reasons named m their said report s therefore, It Is hereby Jittolrndy By the Common Connell of the dtv of Chicago, that the Board of Public Works, for thepnrpoeeof prosecuting said Improvement to tbe extent that shall be necessary to tally test the character of (ho work to be done, and to prevent delay In tbe prosecution of said work, art hereby authorized* until otherwise ordered by the Conn ell. to employ workmen, tools, machinery and materials, and to procure not exceeding six dredges, with as nary scows, cranes, and what ever machinery and materials mar be necessary for working such dredges to their foil capacity- Accompanying this is a list of the blda as pub lished In the TKißOr* of the 4th Instant. Aid. Talcott moved that Ihe Connell alt as a Commitue of the Whole (or the consideration of the report. Ala. Clark moved to amend to paas the order asked by the Board of Public Works. Aid. Knickerbocker suggested that there was | not s quorum sufficient to pass tbe order. It need ! ire the affirmative vole# of twenty-four Aldermen. The Council then sat as a Committee of the Whole—Aid. Holden in the chair. 1 Aid. Wicker advocated the propriety of the non passage of tne order asked by the Board of Public Works. He based bis opin ion upon the estimates which Hr. Gooding made to him. Qe believed the result of the adoption of the plan suggested would be to expend by tbe city from fifty to one hundred per centum more than need be paid If a contractor -be entrusted with the work. Aid. lakolt strongly opposed the adoption of the resolution, believing, drst,thst ills now im possible to proaecnte tbe wore, when each onnee of soil taken ont becomes a frozen clod. Be waa also much astonished tha< Mr. Gooding should ask money to test tbe work, when that gentleman most know that (here are fitly men tn the State and tn Wisconsin who know all about It, and when the records of the canal still exist. He should also oppose the building of dredges by (be city to be sold In the spring at Iras than seventy-five cents on the dollar of their cost. Bach dredge wonld cost, with its machinery, F&CCO.andlllbeworknas afterward let ont by contract there would be a lose of some $30,000, In this connection ho advocated thesemtlagof delegates to the Crna) Convention to be shortly held at Rock Island, that efforts be made to get the woi k Into the hands of the State. Aid. Barrett could not sec why tbe Board shoo'd he so anxious to get tbla work on their hands when It is a matter of pnMlc notoriety that they have cow on tbclr bands more work than they cm doacnatl'tidto. Be remembered that when U nad thought lie tunnel contract would be thrown ap. toe rime Board faked to be alio wed to step tn and perform ihe work. He should object to the passage oi tbe resolution even if the contract price should bo a trifle hither than the amount which the Boaid could assnre the Council it could do It for. Aid. Shackfotd and Aid. Proodfool endorsed the substance of the remarks of the previous speaker. Major IMcc was of opinion that the only quea- l tlon here Is. how can this work be done moat < chiaplyby tbe cite. A gerertl Imnresilon baa coco forth that the rotate \\ITI accept the work, and if there is to be action cn the part ot the State, be ■ BDggrated that a Utile delay would be deelraolc. Aid. Carter hoped for nothing from the Statu Legislature in this behalf, and be tboocht the re* pottshonlc be committed to the special commit tee In relation to toe matter, that come light may bo thrown upon the enbject to direct the action of the Board. Aid. C'ark explained that one grand obstacle in tbe way of tbe success of Fox,Howa»d A Walker bad been to the want of proper implements; they bad used scoop dredges when chain dredges should have been used. He deprecated (the idea of tie Board of Public Works advancing to do this work: be directly opposed It and was wil ling to wait to see what can be done at the Legis lative. Meantime he thought there could be no great expedition made, inasmuch as the sol) Is In no condition to be operated noon at this time. He looked upon tbl* proposition as a piece ;of folly, the more as he understood ; itiatbedeaireoftheßoaidtobuynpalotofFoz, Coward A Walker's preposterously nnsnlted ma- Aid. Knickerbocker averred (bat he would never vote to give the Board of Public Works authority to carry on this work. He did not, how ever, hope that anything would be done by the Slate. Thc'wur debts, held sacred ‘n thenorthem comities, burdening the people by necessary the members from these. coun ties wtlT object to say great increase of incumbrance by way of debt. He recom mended that the work be divided into sections, to be let upon separate contracts, to be well se cured. and in case of failure on the part of tbe contractor, io enforce Indemnity from the sureties. Aid. Talcotl conld not understand why Sawyer A Steele bad not been notified to increase the ma chinery os their rock excavating contract, when ther, to his certain knowledge, are as br behind in the completion of their work as Fox A How ard. With a contract on their hands requiring forty derricks, they engaga hat sixteen, and with the need of fire hun dred men, they bare bnt two Hundred. The contractors —Ludler. Lowell A Co—sre in as had a condition wtto inelr work, and they bare not been notified to increase their force. ’ Aid. Clark presented as a substitute lorthe reso lution the tallowing: _ . . jfrrrtred. That tbe Board of Public Works be rrqne-tea to advertise for bids for deepening the Illinois and Michigan Canal, asld bids to cover and include not more than two aecttoos, whether of rrck or earth, so far as may be required for the completion of the Improvement originally con templated in the contract made with Messrs. Fox, Howard A Walker, avd other partita. Aid. Moore moved to strike onl the words “not more than two sec Dona “ from the amendment. _ Ihe amendment of Aid. Clark was lost by a unanimous vote in tho negative. Aid.
