The memorial is signed by Governor «* ells and other j.romlacnt persona. Mr. UtUMBUIJ. spoVoat some length on tho i snl-ject embraced in the petl’ion. He said it the statements made by the memorialists, who were o> high character, were true, then Congress ought to take immediate action tor the protec lon of tne loyal people o< Louisiana, lie said that the mnr ccn of loyal men were Increasing In frequency, and the lives, liberties and happiness of the freed men were dcrei.denton toe caprices of the dis loyal, and neither white loyalist* nor treedmen could obtain Jn>Ucc in civil courts. He thought the Government ahonld interfere to pro tect loyal men in their rights. Coo* Ctess had ail power In' the rebellious Stales under the Constitution to place then In the Lands of loyal men. He claimed that by this re bellion lucre Southern States Lad lost their rights, but were none the less amenable to lbe laws that had been broken and to the Jurisdiction of the General Government. The hostile movements in* annotated by tne rebels bad been overthrown, but this by no means restored the SlatcJGoremmenu.

Iti concluding lie remarked that the pre sent orgarlai itne bad failed to ansne*- the pur pose to- which they were cs'aldlshed, and It was • mircly competent for Congress to Ignore them, end organise otLers on sncKpiiocipics as would secure the nec-udo&cy 01 V»l and Uepnbticau principles.

Mr. TRUMBULL angrily retorted, saying ho bad not shaped bis course lor a re-election, and re gretted tbo Senator (Dans) conld never rise above peifonal consideration*. Mr. 3UMNEH, of Mass., from the Committee on Forelr n Relations, reported a joint rcsolntion ten dering the thanks of Congress to Cyrus W. Field, nltb the recommendation that it be passed; also, a bill to prevent falreand fraudulent inducements lor emigration from the United SlaUs to foreign cottbDles. Mr. WILSON presented a protest from Mr*. D. S. Grant and others, of the Soldier*' and Sailors* llcmc, against the houm bill csuoli-hmg a new Boaid oi Directors for that institution. The Committee on Finance asked to be dis charged tvom further con*ldrailon of the petition of clerks of Government departments for Increased compensation, which was granted. Mr. EDMUNDS, of Voimont, on leave, intro duced a bill to prevent illegal voting In the Dls met ol Colombia, making illegal voting a penal offence. Mr. POMEROY, of Kansas, on leave, introdnced a bill to equalize the circulation o' currency tn ibo :-cvirsl Stales and Terriorics, wbicb was rclcrrcd to tbe Committee on Finance. On notion of Mr. WADE, of Ohio. tb~ Senate proceeded to tbe consideration of tbo bill for the admission of Nebraska as a State. Tbe pending question was on tbe amendment of Mr. Brown, of Mo., piovldirg there should be no restriction ol suhrage on account ol race or color. Mr. WADE hoped to see tbe dar when that principle wonld prevail over every State in tbe Union. Itbad been said that there was a prece dent for thus limiting the rights of a State coming into the Colon, bat it bad ocen condemned by the most distinguished legal men. Another principle was, tbe General Government bad no right to fix the privilege of votlus in a State, always accept ing Mates that bad forfeited their rights. There was no doubt of the Jurisdiction where tbe Stale bed been in rebellion. Mr. SUMNER asked If, In i's discretion, a State might not refnse this, is a fit case for rejection, under tbe circumstances. Mr. WADE said that was the question now to be decided, and that Congress baa the power, and be thought it was more important that loyal Ter ritories should be admitted tban disloyal States, lie raid that Nebraska wonld be nn to nigh water mark In tbe permit of human rights, and be warud to strengthen her by admission. It might l*e right to fix this condition on a slave State, but roll lr.c could be more unlike than a slave Slave that t ad forfeited its rights and a loyal Territory seeking admission. Many of those States bad re jected the magnanimous terms offered, and when they reject those (eras bo was In favor of severer ones. Mr. SUMNER said be thought these Stale Gov rmnfrt! were to far valid that they conid pro on a Constitutional Amendment Mr, WADK replied that vougreas had breathed the breath ot 111•. into them, bat without they ac cepted tie amendment it was void. He depteca ted tbo Idea of cetding this Lilt back to the peo ple. and a Cloned that both by population and re tourcc* Nebraska was entitled to admission as a Slate. jl».

Could It be so In any other senso than that a Ststcwsa sovereign. Was it not obvious that there must be a double allegiance ? If this waa -o the time should bo fixed when Slate allegiance ttors and National allegiance begins, which alle giance should be rxacted of the people of* Nebraska. If the allegiance of citizens was net direct, but existed thron®h the *tatr, bow could individuals be punished as rebels The great question was whether they were rebels or not. lie was of the opinion that the Constitution was an ordinance of toe people broneb their Stale organisation, and (o wbleu owed direct and personal allegiance and * Mr. HOWE asked if persons who were forced itto the rebel army had remmlUed treason.

This pro.eclion to the clli «ns wat the wuf pro quo for allegiance, lie op* pored Ihe admission of Nebraska.

It was sot claimed that a Slate Govern* meat was necessary to the people of that Tem* tory, or that their laws have not been properly administered, hot that she soarht to be admitted because It would strengthen the bands of those inpowerwho are nowlmtaentcly in the major* tiy. He ofered an amendment to (he amend* nient pioviding that the people o( Nebraska, when admitted, should owe allegiance solely to ihc UnUcd States, and that IheyeouU never set up a foreign co cmmrt.t, air. POOUTTLK said there was not sufficient evldacce either that the people in Nebra*ka de sired admission, or that there was snfOcient popu lation to Justify IL The Convention did not form a Constitution, or submit one to the pcon’e. He believed they were opposed to any Constitution, and therefore the enabling act expired. Subse quently the legislature formed a Constitution, and they did not even know if the people were in lavor of it. tor there were no election laws in existence, and no one could he punished for illegal voting. It > was stated that two companies of lowa troop* hid voted at that ■ clecUot. Thu, with other alleged frauds, made R doubtful whether the people of tha> Territory desired aamisuuu.
