[Special Despatch to the Chicago Tribune, WAsniscTOK. January I; COKOBESf. The proceeding or Congress were of very little * general interest to-day. The House was engaged for over two houre with private bills, and then went onwllb the* Civil Appropriation Bill. The Senate spent the whole da; on the bill regulating the President's power of removal and appoint* ment, bat reached no conclusion. The bill was variously amended, and then ordered printed lor fuither consideration. THE KEW OELEASB XASS ACRE. The evidence accompanying the report of the Xcw Orleans InvcsUgatlhg Committee Is in pro cess o( printing. Although considerable addi tional remains to be taken hern, it is considered so important that the report itself will be pre pared with unusual care, and the evidence fully ♦ indexed. The committee worked most iodtutri- I ously ten days, taking evidence regarding the not, the state of loyalty in Louisiana, and the condition of Union men. One hundred and sev enty witnesses were examined, including Ally citizens, whose names were furnished by a com mittee appointed by the city to conduct the defence. Among the rest were all the leading men of the Slate whom the committee could reach. The testimony is regarded as establishing overwhelming proof that the slaughter of July *as fully pre-arranged. The testimony of General Sheridan was very full and of great significance and importance. The e»i --4 dcncc covers a much wider ground than that taken by the UUltary Commission. The difficulty which was anticipated in securing the testimony, of Union men did not arise, bat these literally swarmed to the members of the committee to cell their stories and ask for relief, Many came se cretly, and many were pot tazauiued. All con curred in the statement that the course of Mr. •Johnson bad made the condition of all Union t. men unbearable in the city. Their busl mess was ruined by rebel combine- and they were all virtually outcasts In A the State. Life was not safe. The general term t?or Onion men In that section Is “traitors.” The •■agony manifested by this whole class was one of : (he matters which attracted the most attention • from the committee, and the bearing of evidence -elicited os this subject will ahow the terrible Buf fering, which Mr. Johnson has brought upon the Union men of the South, in a glaring light. The ‘ regarding the participation of the State ;• ►utborities and the complicity of President John won in the massacre, Is not closed. Important ’ '-uilUcry witnesses are to be examined be:c touch ing these matters. THE ROBEOLK KAVT TABP. ' A further cratolna(ion of the papers sent to the Senile by the Secretary of the Navy in reply to the call for Information respecting the Norfolk Navy Yard, Is dictated to confirm the strong impression quite generally entertained, that the • Secretary used the whole machinery of the Navy Yards of the country la*l fall for political pnrpo sc:. Among the papers is a considerable corns- I ondcnce with the A. Johnson Club organized in Norfolk Yard. It appears that the Club held a su-etlng on the sth of October and appointed lie President, one Francis A. Gibbons, to proceed to Washington and lay before the Secretary of the Navy the necessity of removing from office men who are known to be opposed to (he Admin istration, and appointing In their stead mca who are known to sustain the same. Ibo Club men proceeded to recommend the removal of about a * dozen of the ptloclpsl muter workmen, Ac., and followed this with a list ot names of persons. • hearty supporters of the reconstruction poller of - Qio Administration. Whom It would be desirable to Appoint to the vacancies thus made. Mr. Gib. boos who tras recommended (or (be pool of Chief Accountant of tne yard, did r.ot find U convenient *o come to Washington, bnrhe wrote the Secretary* let ter, in w hich he urged him to make the removals and appointments recommended, and hinted to him that ihe result of the October electiona showed tbe folly of not acting In the matter long ago. He enclosed a copy of :hc proceedings o( the Club, and also a letter efened by about sev enty of the so-called merchants, mechanics and business men of Portsmouth, endorsing the recommendation of the Club, and urging action without delay. Hr, Gibbons seemed to (oar that the Secretary would not act expeditiously enough, and ao bo sent another copy of these documents to Colonel Tom Florence, editor of the Union newspaper in this dty, for delivery to the President. He earnestly entreated \ Ur. Florence to see the President and have these obnoxious men removed without delay. Be was also desired to call in the aid of General Tbos. Kv.lng, tfr., to bring shunt immediate action. Colonel Florence was prompt In the matter. The papers were laid before the President, who re- j Icrrcd them to Secretary Welle*, and especially called his attention to ihe same. Tbe record tails to show whether or not Ur. Gibbons got tbe place he desired, but eome of tho others whom , the Club recommended were fortunate enough to eeenre appointments. Some of those whoso re movals were urged were suspended, and rein stated only alter long correspondence, and the most abject subserviency, while others seem never to have been restored at all. msposmoK or tot nisonrnosAßT mn>. The Secretary of the Treasury has sent to the Ucasc along report showing how be distributed the $250,U>0 given Idm for discretionary purposes In March 1865, and tbe $160,000 given him tor tbe same me in July, 15GG. It appears therefrom that the First and Second Comptrollers were awarded $375 each, the First and Second Assistant Secreta ries, the several Auditors, the Solicitors, the Reg ister, ibe Bead of the Cnrrcncyßurcan, s2soeach, though Assistant Secretary Chandler baa not drawn the amount given him. It farther appears that 204 first-class clerks, with a salary of received $ 100 each; that .‘137 second class clerks,with a salaryof sl,4oo.rccel,'cd SIOO cech; that 501 persons employed as laborers, watchmen, copyists, messengers, Ac., on salaries rot exceeding $1,200 per year, received SIOO each; that 210 clerks of various grades received less than SIOO each; that 223 clerks', mostly of second dess, received amounts varying from SIOO to $200; tbctfitty-fonr clerks ol (he higher grades, with salaries of SI,OOO to $2,200, received amounts varying from S2OO to S3OO each; 115 re ceived from $3Ol to S4OO each: eleven received ftom S4UO to SSOO each; ten received from SSOO to SOOO each; nineteen re ceived irorn st>oo to S7OO each; and eleven re ceived from S7OO to SBOO each. THE TARITT. The Tariff Dill vvas reported from the Senate Finance Committee this evening, just before the adjournment. It goes to tho bottom of ttacwhole s-nbloct, repeals all existing tariff laws, and lays tariff' anew on all articles of import. This is in accordance with tbe recommendation of Oommls fi.-jicr Wells. This bill is framed like ifcat reported by Mr. Well 8 , and in many respects adopts its recommended rates. The Committee concur in his Idea of admitting raw materials tree or at low rates. The rates proposed on tea, coffee, sugar, spice. alcohols and wines are the same as existing rates. Tbe Bouse rec ommendation of last session being eel aside, the duty on cigars is reduced from three to two dol lars per pound. The rates fixed on wool* and woollen goods are substantially, on all Important items, those agreed on by the wool growers and macufeciorers, and adopted lu the House bill, but the classification is that of Mr. Weils, which was recommended by the Cus tom Bouse officers.' Tbe duty on pig nun and railroad iron remain as under existing laws. Ihe House classification of hammered 1 iron is adopted, though the rates proposed are geneßtily lower than those of the House bill. Tne alt duties remain untouched. Tbe Bonse pro vision for very high duty on alcohat is set aside. Tic free list recommended by Mr. Wells Is sub .-taatmlly adopted. Tbe bill is a very long one, Iml it will ho printed and ready for delivery by * Monday. Mr. Fessenden will ask the Senate to proceed to Us consideration at an early day, per haps by Thursday next, though possibly not until a week. from from Monday. HAKE FTATEMEKTS. The Comptroller of the Currency has received about ouc thousand quarterly reports, showing the condition oi National Banks on the morning of the 7th instant. As far as the same have been examined, they are found to show the banks gun c;ally in a good condition. They appear to lure a demand for all their available funds, and (be te.tns and discounts are unusually large in the aggregate; yet the lawful money reserve required by Uu» National Currency Act Is well maintained. In regard to the reteive of lawful money required liy the hanks, the Comptroller is requiring that (he bai hs kvcp (he two-fifths of fifteen, or one half of twenty-five per centum of circulation, in legal tviidcr notes and specie entirely. Tbe banks hare heretofore been allowed to keep com* L pound interest notes to & certain extent lor all lj purposes. DECIEIOX UNDER TOE BOUNTt uw. Tbe Second Comptroller has decided that when a father, who by reason of the death of his son la the service, was entitled to the additional .bounty, died before receiving the same, leavingno widow, the the bounty cannot legally be paid to any one; that the bounty is a naked gratuity personal to the party to whom Congress granted it, and when no provision Is made by law lor its descent to tno hsirs of the beneficiary, a prohibition is implied. DISCONTINUED. The Secretary of War has ordered (he discon tinuance of ibe office ol Assistant Jud^c-Advo cate General at Louisville, Ky. Brigadier Gene ral Win. Durr, Assistant Judge-Advocate General is assigned to duty in this city. ANNEXED. The military post ot Jeffersonville, Ind., has been annexed to the Department of the Tennessee.

TOT BESATOniAL QCES~IOK has excited but lltt'e Interest dating the day, but to-nignt. In anticipation of Judge Trumbull's ar rival at a late hour, activity and excitement is manifested in tbe ranks of both parties.

Of course they look for certain defeat A delegation from Kanka kee arrived here this evening, representing that Poet of the Grand Army of tne Republic, with a strong remonstrance against the election of Gen eral Palmer. GEKERAL PALMER'S LETTER. The dale of the letter from Genera) Palmer to Senator Trumbull, which has been circulated through the press, is a forgery. 1 have the highest authority for saying that it was written and sent to Judge Trumbull after tbe Freedmen’s Bureau and Civil Rights bills bad been introduced into the United States Senate. Who is the author of the forgery will probably be made known to tbe public. A CtncDLAR. The enemies of Senator Trumbull have issued a ciiculai, and distributed it liberally among the members of tbe Assembly, urging them to ask him a large number ot questions, among them, “Did not John M. Palmer suggest lo yon Ibc first section of tbe Civil Rights Bill, and did yon i.ot promise that yon would acknowledge such suggiktioo,and did not yon violate that promisor l Ibe answer to this question will be found in tbe exposure of Ihe forgery, as elated above. Tbe valance of the questions are of the same char acter. TUX BOX CHEATING A BOARS OF HEALTH FOE CDI- CAGO.

It contemplates the appointment of Health Commissioners, gives them powers that will effectually place the sanitary condition of Chicago In equally as good condition aa New YoJkCiiy.

Thu bill mil undoubtedly pass without opposition. RZ-ATPOETIONMXST OT TUB STATE. The- Senate also passed a joint resolution look ing to the appointment of a Committee to ro appoition the Stale into Senatorial and Represen tative Districts. THE AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. The Senate passed a resolution that tbo Com misslonere who shall be appointed to locate the Agricultural College shall recognize no offers that au* not In greenbacks. United States bonds, State bends, or real estate subscription lists, un paid, will receive no attention. The expense of the Mate In icccivlng subscription lists on bids ot this character, has not been bucQ as to warrant a continuance of that course of proccedurc. THE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT. The Constitutional Amendment will be taken up in the Bouse on Monday afternoon, and will be pm through before adjournment. GENERAL FATNE'S BILL. The bill introduced by General Payne, yester day, to pot a proviso in all railroad or other charters granted ot amended by the Legislature, that they shall he subject to legislation In regard to their tariff for freights and passengers, was taken np In the House Ibis afternoon. Mr. Bailey offered a substitute, subjugating the roads now inexistence to the same legislative control. A lengthy debate followed. Mr. Bailey spoke at some length in support of his substitute, saying that he did not disapprove of Genera) Payne's resolution, bat did not think it went lar enough, and In a pointed manner referrea to the irrespon sible and independent action of corporations created by this body. Mr. Stevenson opposed tbe substitute, doubting wbeihcr so sweeping an ac tion woold be supported by the Courts, Mr. Conkling also opposed It, as striking a severe blow at all corporations already in existence. Ho feaivd that It would be Indecu a fatal blow at all Improvements, by tho uncertainty It would create, and the fear that it would be interfering with their rights, keep capital out of all corporations, and blast the industry and enterprise of our State Consolidation of railroads sbontd be prevented, and new roads should he chartered aide by side with old ones, if possible, trusting to competi tion to bring down liSlffs, and these, he believed, would he the tree remedies. Ho deemed it impossible for any legislative body to establish a tailfftor railroad charges, and such an Impolitic tnle would be found more nnjast and oppressive than any now in existence. Mr. Epler moved to retcr both the original resolution and subs Rate to the Judiciary Committee. Mr. Hinsmoor op , posed (ho reference, and said he would bo In fa vor of the adoption of both the resolution and substitute, as they did not cla?h with each other. As for the fear that capital would not seek invest ment In this State if such a law were passed, bo considered it alt moonshine. Gcuctal Payne ex pressed hlmselt in favor of both resolutions, and hoped the substitute would be temporarily with drawn so that both might be adopt ed. He thought that there could be no better time than the pres ent to tc*t the temper of the House In this matter, and said in answer to Mr. Cockling, that the zallroads hud bad this matter loft to them too long already, until half tbe produce of tbe State is consumed In its transportation. Mr. Wakeman said he warmly supported General Payne in his opposition to railroad monopolies, and was will ing this afternoon to place himself on tho record against tho .exorbitant charges of the railroads. The only way to control this evil, he believed, was the adoption of the section proposed by Gen eral Payne. Mr. Warren supported tbe motion tors reference, Mr. Childs next addressed tbe House in favor of the resolution, and reverting to the manner in which the lobby managed to squelch tho efforts against railroad monopolies in the last legislature, be urged discussion now.and for that purpose moved that the Uon-e go into Committee of ibe Whoienpon It. Mr. Bonn thought that at least all those mem bets who represented agrlcultnral districts felt themselves virtually Instructed by their constitu ents to labor for some restriction of railroad chargee. As an illustration of how cxorbitan: these charges ore now, he said lhat he had heard that the Illinois Central Railroad Company arc now shipping cattle East on halves. Ho thongbt nothing woold be lost by retonicg (he matter to tho Judiciary Committee. Mr. Green, of Hewitt, tald ho believed an act of the character proposed would be unconstitutional, nod would not be recognized by the Courts as valid. Tbe motion to go into Committee of tbe Whole was lost by a vote of IB ayes to 36 noes. On the question of reference to the Judiciary Committe, Mr. Bailey again spoke, and alter at length nttackiug the railroads for their extortion, and showing how useless would be tbe attempt to fight irresponsible corporations with other irresponsible corporations, be with drew bis resolution as a substitute, and moved i| as an amendment to accompany General Payne's original motion. Mr. Buyer was apposed to hasty action on the subject, saying that be did not fully understand it. Mr. Alexander understood gentlemen to express themselves as If they thought railroads were a great injury to the State, bat be could not sec what they objected to. People were not forced to ship their grain and ca’tle on the rail road and pay the high charges. They coold drive their hoes and cattle on foot to market, IT they wanted to. They were free, therefore he did not wish to see capital discouraged from Investment lr. railroads. Egypt wanted railroads, and he was from Egypt and such restrictions asthoec pro* posed would kill all their hopes. After some inrlber discussion and pending the decision of the question of reference, the Boose adjourned until to-morrow at 10 a. m. THE IXPEACmiZST 07 THE TBESIDENT. A resolution will be introduced into the iloose to morrow to endorse the recent action of Con gress, looking (o tbe impeachment of Andrew Johnson. CONVICTED.

So tar is this from being true that at the moment we censemed to retire, the very ex istence of the Associated Press was. in the esti mation of our friends and in ihe estimation of at least twoofthelesdingmcmbers oftbeAsaoclatiou, in oor hands. We retired eimolj because we were tendered everything lor'which we made contract for an Associated Press, it is understood and agreed that the Western Associated Press shall control! all news matter In tbe West, and Southwest, and thev have placed their business In the hands of my friend George B. Hicks. The monopoly of the news re ports for tbe benefit otiba Bulletin and the APa f'c/i/'omia is to cease at the end of sixty Jays, and in the meantime onr newspaper friends at San Francisco arc to bare the Associated Press reports at Chicago, free of expense. All the news paper? that have taken onr reports. Sooth and West, arc to receive tbe reports of the Associated Press upon as bvorahle terms In every respect as the papers that have been receiving the reports ot the Associated Press. The most competent agents will be selected to serve the Associated Press* The New York Associated Press will not compete with ns in the commercial reporting business, and we shall not compete with them in the general news reporting business. lam thor- ODcbly well satisfied with mv position, and am not m a codttion to re unite the condolence of my friends or tbe public.

FROM. LOUISVILLE. An Interview with, the Arkansas Dele gation—llow They were Received In 'Washington—General Grant's Opin ions—A Decision by the Kentucky Court of Appeal*. [Special Despatch to the Chicago Tribune.] loiiiMUE. January 11. I have bad a long and umcaeivcd conversation with the Arkansas delegation, direct from Wash ington, where they went to confer In regard to the admission ol the State. The Committee consist ed of General Gantt. John R. Fell.aud R. C. New uii. They think the impi-aclmieut scheme will be wholly abandoned or defeated, and say that Cong;essmen are overwhelmed with letters pro testing acn'nsl impeachment. Ihe Committee feona the .President firm In the determination to see equal Justice meted out in every state. Tno delegation also met at tnc dinner laolcof Secre tary toward. General Grant, who was vcryretic.mt un political metiers, frankly stated to them that tic knew nothing of political aflairs, and was wholly ignorant of the sophistries of politicians regarding the Constitutional Amendment The General declined to express any opinion as to Us justice, constitutionally or expediency, but he said he would like for at least one Southern State to adopt it as an experiment, to see if (beir Senators and Representatives would be admitted to seals in Congress, at tbc asms nine expressing the opinion that they would be admitted. Ue also stated that at the commence ment of Congress he urged upon prominent mem bers If they intended to mase the adoption on the part ol Southern States of the Amendment the condition precedent to readmission, they ought to pass a resolution to that Direct, solemn ly pledging Congress to receive the Senators and Representatives who wore elected to that body. 1! they did not take some such step, they coaid not expect Southern people to take a step tnat ' might be preliminary to others that would lead them they knew not where. On the negro sufitage question he was more de cided, stating that he believed that was a question that should be Kir wholly and entirely with the people of the several States. That Congress, in Uls opinion, bad no right to interfere in that mai ler, and emphatically declared if the ques tion came np in Illinois, and be were there to vote, he would certainly vole against it. But he said something to the effect that it bo were in one of the Soutncrn States he believed ho would vote for it, lor he was satisfied be could march tbc niggers up to the polls to vote them as ho pleased, and would thus he gaining instead of losing political power. They called upon lhad. Stevens and sny he insulted them. Last winter Mayor Lamppert was impeached and depo-ed for official contumacy.
