The House then proceeded as the first business in order Jo the conslaciation of the bill reported by Mr. Stevens, Apiil ath, Irom tho Joint Select Committee on ReconMrucifon to provide lor restoring to the Slates lately In Insurrection ttndi full political rights, the question being on tbe f übsihuie proposed therefor by Mr. Stevens, on the lt»tb December, 18W5, • Mr. BINGHAM made a point oforder that a l * the eighth ttciiou provided foi admission of rebel Slates on" compliance with the conditions pre rcrlbed. it must he referred to the Committee on Reconstruction. Tbe Speaker overruled the point, as that hid has been reported from Iho.'committee, and wa a uetore the House, subject to amendment. Mr. bTEVENb maoe a motion to amend the third section by taking the power to appoint Elec tion V'Ommlss'oners lor the districts lately In re bellion, irom Congress and giving it to tbe Su preme Court of the District of Columbia. He said: lam very anxious that this bill shall bo pro ccedtd with until Aral action Is reached. I desire that this Homo should come to same conclu sion what la to he done with the rebel States. T his becomes more aud more necessary every day * and the late decision of the Supremo Court of the United Slates baa rendered immediate action of Congress upon the question of establishing governments m the rebel States ab<*(T lately indispensable. That deck-ion. tnongh in tcims, peibap? not so infamous as the Dred Scott decision, ia yet far more danrerons and dis astrous in Its opeialion on the lives and liber ties of tbe loyal men of this country. Thatde cu-ion has taken away iho protection of everf loyal man. black or white, who resides there That decision has uneheaihcd the dagger of the assassin and put It to the throat of every man who dares to proclaim himself, now or hereafter alojal Union mau. If that decision be true, -hen never were any men in sucb terrible peril, as our loyal brethren In the South, white and black, whether originally residing there or not. Mr. Speaker, mdess Congress proceed at once to do something to protect these people from ibe barbarian horde who are daily murderin'* them, black and white, aud putting them into sicrel graves, hundreds and thousands of the loyal colored people will proceed atonco to nke action. I beseech you, and every man who loves liberty, whether we are not liabla to the world for our cowardice, tor our seeming want ot ability to no it. Uls lor these reasons that I insist in going on with the consideration of this bill. Virdt* is an act to leave to the men In the bouthem States, nr near as I can discrimi nate then., to form governments and ro put them into loyal hands, that theym.iy protect themselves from the outrages that I speak of. No one o; onr Generals commanding Departments in the Slate* lately in rebellion dare now to render this deci sion. One ofthe most atrocious rebels, - Dr. Watson, has been released under Jins decision. For the J*cei reasonslt becomes ail the morenecessary that v> c should promptly lake measures to pul a stop to there atrocities and protect the loyal people of the Suuth. Mr. SI EVENS proceeded to read a written argument in support of the bill. Ho described the condition of attalr? at the South,and said out rages were committed by the late rebels upon loyal meu, while and blade, and that the country in which such a state of things could exist, was not a true icpubhc. Twenty years ago he had denounced one Government as a despotism, !«*- cacse under ft then, twenty millions of white men enslaved four millions of black men, and he pronounced ft no nearer a true republic now than it was then. The freedom of a government did not depend upon the quality of its laws, but upon the power having authority to en act them; and no Government could be free that did not allow all its citizens to participate in the mating aid the execution of Its laws. Tberewere degrees In tyranny, and generally the larger the number of the rubra the more criiel (he despol bm. Congress was bound, by every considera tion ofhoj.oraud policy, to prefect loyal people at tic boulh. All obstacles standing to. the wav of such action must be removed. The President was Ccmmarder-ir-Chlef of the army, but Con gress vas las commander, and ho was compelled in obey. He and bis minion® must li-am that ours is net a Government of kings and satraps, tut a Government of the poop e for the people- At the ,-ovclnslon of Mr. Mevens* AMU.KV, or Ohio,offercd a substitute.

He said the policy of rapid contrac’lon, and attempt at an early resumption cf specie payments, wouM end xu the bankruptcy of individual corporation? and States, and possibly that of the National Govern ment. Mr. PIKE, of Maine, next addressed tbc House and protested against Congress pledging itself to admit Representatives from the South on their ratifying tbe Constitutional Amendment. He wished to judge of each Stale separator, and if they treated tbe freedaten properly he wonld vote lot their adctl-slou; but they gave no indi cations of it. The only plan left them in liis opinion was to lake one or two Slates and estab lish In them governments founded on universal scilrage- Mr. HOLMES next addressed the House in a tadlcal speech on tbc reconstruction of the South ern States. Mr. WENTWORTH, of Illinois, offered the fol lowing. w bich was adoptc :: retolud.

FROM BOSTON. Tbfi Llqnor law-Tbe Small dealers Prosecute the Hotels—An Odd Trio of Culprits—A Refractory Jury'— The Soldiers* monument—The Gn>< Ques tion, and a Gas Explosion—School Discipline— Flocctnfj Statistics—The Kew magazine— The Banka Affair— Tito Storm In New England* (Special Correspondence of the Chicago Tribune.] Boston. Mass., December Si). Ever since the foundation of the constabu lary system in this Stale, two years ago, tbe officers of the force have been striving to suppress the retail sale of liquor,which Is here a criminal offencc,*by prosecuting the small groceries and groggeries in the cities and in the rural districts. The large hotels, at the bars of which a very large part of the drinking is done, have not once beenjinter tered with; their gains hove been increased by the losses of their lessor and poorer neighbors; and indeed the Chief Constable has avowed his purpose ofleaving these pow erful establishments alone until that remote period when tbe traffic shall be suppressed everywhere else, on the theory that he must begin somewhere, and that less gross intoxi cation can be traced to these than to the bars of a lower grade. Naturally this coarse has not been especially gratifying to those numerous small dealers la liquors, who hare been exposed to great annoyance and ex pt-nscs devouring all their profits by the con stant complaints of tbe constabulary, while men who had pot rich from the same begin nings were allowed to cuimnit the same of- lujoe with impunity. At lust they have al lowed their wrath to take ‘form in a j radical and very peculiar protest. A iVw d.»ys ngo a tonual complaint was made in tho. Municipal Court at the In -lance of one of these minor rum sellers, backed up by others of the same kidney, ‘gainst tbe proprietors of three of our prin dpal hotels—Parker’s. Young’s und the Re vere House, clanging each 'of them with •inainlalnlrur a liquor nuisance.” The ledge readily issued the writ, which was served indue .form, and on Thursday tha three wealthy and substantial gentlemen complained of, Harvey J. Parker, George Youn" and William Brigham, appeared in the characterof prisoners at the bar. They all pleaded guilty without a blush, and were each sentenced to pay a fine of SSO and costs, to be imprisoned for three months in the House of Correction, and to give bonds in the sum of SI,OOO not to offend again in the same way. The sight of the three tolling in the Penitentiary would he a rare one indeed, but it* is not to be granted to the curious yet, for the whole trio prompt ly appealed from the decision, and were hound over to appear before a higher court at a coming term. Each gentleman found willing and sufficient bondsmen in the other. two: and so the case goes over, with the multitude of others like it on the docket, to await the decision of the Supreme Court of the United Slates as to the constilutionalitv of the law under which it occurs. Meanwhile the constables arc active In all parts of the State, making prosecutions in earnest, and scarcely a day goes by without the announcement of the seizure of ibou -ar.ds of dollars’ worth of liquor in Spring field, or Worcester, or some other of the minor cities. Sometimes a disaffected Jury man blocks the wheels of the law, and in a week or two'ago, alter repeat* ••n disagreements In liquor cases where the evidence left no possibility of doubt as to he tacts, the presidium judge took the uu .;»ud course of dismissing the whole jury, uhich contained two stubborn members, with a fen- remarks as to the enormity of neb conduct, and proceeding with the rest •»f the business of the term with one jury only. THE SOLDIERS’ MONUMENT. Tbc agitation of the Soldiers’ Monument question has pone on for another week in the City Council, with the usual accompani ments of editorials and communications on the subject in the papers. The committee on the subject reported on Friday evening to the City Council, with a recommendation that the additional amount called for,sGo,ooo, making SIOO,OOO in all, should be appropri ated in spite of the remonstrances. The Council voted on the appropriation after a long debate, and it stood twenty to nine teen ; so by the decision of the presiding officer that a two-thirds vote was necessary, the extra appropriation was lost ; but there is some discussion as to the correctness of this ruling, some authorities main taining that only the original appropriation required the two-tbmis majority. Uv the present prospect. I suppose the matter will go over to the new City Government, which comes into power in a week or so. GAS MATTERS. The other subject which has lately en gaged the attention of the Dosion legisla \-rs—the question of and assumption by the gity of the manufacture and supplying of gas •.o the inhabitants—has been settled by the vloj-tion of an order for the appointment of -i city inspector of metres, whose duty it -hall be to investigate all complaints of consumers as to incorrect measurement or unjust charge*; and for the creation ..f a commission to examine into the wh<*lc matter during the next two years, at he cud of which time the citizens shall de cide by a yea and nay vote whether or not the city shall assume the responsibility of providing its people with gas, as it now does with water. The serenity ot last Snnday morning was disturbed by the penetrating odor of escaping gas, which arose from the ?cwere into the cellars of the whole neigh borhood of the South End ; and after a :ew hours of this annoyance, while everybody was searching for the leak, the Sabbath qui et was broken by a tremendous explosion, which knocked several people down, and otherwise had various unpleasant consequen ce®, and was heard all over the city. It proved that theie was a large leak In one of the main subterranean pipes, through which :hc gas was pouring into a sewer, where it ignited. wmrriNG ix schools. That odd collection of people with hob bles, the Boston Social Science Association, has been giving its attention lately to the subject of corporal punishment in'schools, which most of the hobbyists agree in con demning as a practice, though' several of them admit that it cannot be entirely done :iwav with to advantage while juvenile na ture remains what it Is. People generally imagine that there is hardly any flogging in i lie model Boston schools, bnt one member . fthe School Committee stated in one of these social science meetings, that daring the lost nine months nearly fourteen thou sand cases of whipping—ln exact numbers 13.744—had been reported by the teachers, that in many of the instances the punishment was very severe. The sc£° ol committee held one of their regular meetings the next evening, and the member who had made public the whipping •Ifllistics wasTCtfidcd by some of his col* leagues tor the..indiscretion. A vote was taken on the order abolishing corporal pun ishment in the Boston public schools, and •he prop«»sitlon was negatived, but a rale was adopted prohibiting the whipping of girls without the advice and consent of the master of the district. LiiyUßT. The new magazine, A'oiiAcm Lights, has at tast made its appearance, after a good deal of injurious delay. . The first number -bows some promise, but certainly not enough to insure success without rapid'im provement in future. The title-page, to be gin with, is old-fashioned and hideous, and Mrs. Howe, who writes the •‘.Saluta tion,’* ought, instead of being an editor, to be put under very rigid editorial super vision, for her style is most vicious and stilted, and too much of it would be death to any new enterprise. Her poem which follows, on Bachel and Ris’orl, is a good specimen of her worst and harshest manner. The rest of the number is better—the anony mous novel beginning well, FIU Hugh Lud low’s story being clever and magazlmsh, Petroleum V. Kasby—adding an element of 'popularity, although be dpcs not shine In mere humor as he docs in political satire, and “The Contributors’ Club,’’ a convcrsa rional department after the “Nodes Am brrsian®” model, promising to be t. pleasant feature. The periodical is to appear weekly, and Us conductors will soon have a chance to show whether this is the best or the worst they can do. VARIOUS MATTERS. A pilot-boat launched here a few days ago was christened the Edwin Booth. Some of General Banks’s fricnds ? alarmed for the ultimate effect in the District of tho report of the Portland Investigating ‘Com mittee, are endeavoring to get belief for a report that the “ extraordinary conduct ” of the General in. Maine wa« owing to a dose of opium rather than of whiskey; but the de fence Is & very slim one, and will gain nothing NUMBER 210, but ridicule for a cause of which certainlv the leas said the better for its defenders. The inventor of a new device for making safes flre-proot by a system of Interior pi ocs containing water, which is converted by heat into steam, and keeps the books, papers and money cool and secure for honrs and days, has been testing his method here by baking safes over a tire, and, os I am informed, has met with entire success In the ordeal. We are reading, with that complacent in tcrest which comes from personal exomo tion, of the terrible storm which has Inter rupted travel all around us, while here It came only in twenty-four hours of rain. West of Springfield all the way to Buffalo we hear of two feet of snow, drifted some times to the depth of ten and twelve feet, and the trains from New York and Albany come in four or five hours late, or do not come at all. The most serious result of the storm seems to be the wreck of the Sound steamer Commodore, which by great good fortune and good management wa-*’ not attended with the of life that seemed imminent and would have carried bereave ment into hundreds of New England homes. Revere, Japanese Stadenta at a XastmchOMtu Academy, (From the SpriDcfteld (Mass.) Republican.] We noticed last week the arrival in this city ofsix Japanese students on their way to Monsou Academy.' Thev ore sent to this country by the Prince of Satsuma one of the most..powerful and enlightened of the eighteen princes of Japan,'and their object Is to acquire a knowledge of our language, and the brandies of a scientific and practical education. They expect to remain in this country five or alx years, or longer, if neces sary, in order to become proficient in the studies which they wish to pursue. Three of them are young men, and the others are not far from thirty years of age. They are sill connected with the army of Prince Satsu ma, in which they official rank. Their names are Ashuani, Shimada, Hismats, Kudo, Obara nod Yoshida, and thev have already acquired some knowledge of our lan guage. The arrival of these strangers from Japan shows that this remote country is no longer to be secluded from Intercourse with the Western nations. They have,not been con nected with the mission schools in Japan but the advice of one of the missionaries, Kev. Samuel R. Brown, was solicited by the .Government of the country in retard to the best mode of introducing them to the schools of the United States. Mr. Brown, now a mis sionary of the Dutch Reformed Church at Yokohama, was formely in charge of the Morrison school at Hong Kong, and on his re turn to this country be brought with him three Chinese youths, who were several years at the Monson Academv. Their names were Wong SWnp. Yung Wing, and Wong Fun 1 The first of these, Shing, after a residence of two years, returned to China, where he has been connected with the office of the Chim -Vail as an editor and translator, and lately be has been called to take charge of an im portant, school at Shanghai. Yung Wing, af ter a residence of four years at Monson, en tered Yale College, where he graduated in 1554. He was distinguished In college for his attainments in English literature, and won several prizes for composition. Alter his re turned to China he wasa successful merchant, and in ISO 4 he was sent to this country as an agent of the Chinese Government, with an important commission. His nephew, Yung Sum Yow, is now in Monson Academv. Wong Fun fitted for college at Monson, and entered Edinburgh University, in accordance with the wishes of his patron, Mr. Shortrcdc, a native ofScotland.
