(Special Despatch .to the Chicago Tribune.] 'Washington, January 22. DILL TO EXCLUDE BEDRID THOM THE COURTS. The proceedings of the House this afternojn wire of great F*'orest and Importance, and excltnl the closest attention of a full gallt-ry of spec.*- tors. The recent decisions of the Snpr me Court regarding test oaths' was under discntsloo. and the gravity of the it sue# brought online treatpor tion of the gentlemen who participated in the brief and concise debate. The question was brought forward by a short hill reported from the Judiciary Committee by Ex-Governor Bontwcli, which Is as follows: Section 1. Be it enacted, &c. % That no perron shall be permitted to act as an attorney or a« counsellor in any Court ot the Culled States, who h&s been guilty of treason, bril*cry, murder, or other felony, or who has been engaged m any re bellion against the Government of the United States, or who has given aid. comfort or encour agement to the enemies of the United Stat-is (a armed hostility thereto. Sec. 2, And be\f farther *r t acUd % That the first section of this act 1? hereby declared to be a rule of every Court of the United States. Sec. a. Andbeit further enacted* That It shall be the duty ol the Onego or Judges of any such Court, when the suggestion la made in open '«■ Court that any person acting a* an attorney or counsellor of said Court, or ouering or proposing to eo act, is barred by the prortdoa ot this act, or whenever said Jndgt or •ludces shall believe That such poison Is barred, to Inquire and ascertain whether such per son has been guilty of treason, bribery, murder or <uncr leioty, or whctcer be has been engag'd to any rebellion against tbe Government of the United bales, or whether be ha; given aid, com lort or cucoragcmcnt to the enemies ot the United States in a r mcd hostility thereto; and li the Court shall be of the opinion mat such person has been guilty, of treason, bribery. murder or other felony, or that he has been engaged In our rebellion against the Government of th- United Sta'cs, or that he has riven aid. comfort or encouragement to the CLcmics of the United States In armed hostility thereto, to exclude and debar such person from the oQice of attorney or counsellor;of said Court: and any person who shall testify falsely In any examination mails by anvCourtas aforesaid, shall begnllty of perjurv, nnil liable to the pains and pcna.'lcs of perjury.’ In prefcullrg this bill, Governor Bontwcli f-aid: “If a majority of the hnprcm-i Court hadn't respect enough to adopt rules excluding rdwta and tialtors from the bar of that Court, It wartime for the legislative power to slip In and make rules for them.*’ The debate was briefly participated In by several gentlemen, every Democrat, and Copperhead who could get fthe floor, taking occasion to eulogise ih-j Judges who concurred In tbe lest oath decision. Mr. Bout well, In closing (he debate, declared wnh thrilling effect that ho would never subscribe to the doctrine ibst a Presidential pardon conid pnt murderers or traitors on a footing with men who bad never hern guilty of crime. The President might open nil the Jails and. penitentiaries In the land with bis pardon*, but while be bad a seat in the llonsc he would never admit that (ho President's pardon gave a bailor the light to enter (he bir of tbe Court, and assist In administering Justice. ’ Tho galleries and (he Republican side of tho House answered this sentiment with a quick and electric burst of applause. Tho debate being clo*ed, the previous question oo the passage of the bill was seconded nt a quarter before three. bylOf yeas lo 40 nays. The opposition then began fllll bustcring. Several adjournments, motions, via., to sdjoum for one day, lor two days, for ao boor, lor a week, Ac., were made and voted on by yeas and nays.

A Million Deaths by Starvation In In dia. Nrw Yoke, January 33.—Tho official report on the famine In Eastern India shows that there were a million drains from starvation THE RAILROAD WAR. The Disagreement Between tbe Slew York Central and llndson Hirer Bail roads. [From the New York Tribune, January ID.] The chronic disagreements between the New York Central and the Harlem & Hudson River Railroads, which hare been threaten ing a violent outbreak lor the last sixteen years, reached a crisis yesterday. We have no means of knowing which of the companies Is in the right, or with which the victory is most likely to remain. It only concerns ns to know that, however the quarrel may have arisen and however It may be settled, the public Is certain to he a sufferer by Its con tinuance. The cause of the trouble seems to have been the adjustment of rates for tho transporta tion of freight between New York and the West; though the occasion of it, no doubt, was the recent election for officers of the Central Road, when Mr. Vanderbilt, who had already- obtained control of both the routes between Albany and New York, was defeated in the attcim>t to secure the management oi tho great thoroughfare from Albany to the West. CIo?o upon the heels of tho election followed an open declaration of war. The apportionment of freight tolls was made the ttw«* belli. Mr. Vanderbilt proposed that for every car-load of freight sent west over tho Hudsou River or Harlem Rail road the Central Company should send one cnMoad south from Albany to New York. To this the Central not unreasonably demur red : the length of their road being about double that of either of Mr. Vanderbilt's lines, they claimed Unit they were entitled to send two loads to Mr. Vanderbilt’s one, or Unit the lolls should bo divided pro mM. The couscuticnco was that Mr. Vanderbilt suddenly broke off nil Intercourse with the Central Road, and put a stop to all tho fa cilities usually granted to passenger* over connecting lines. U was announced that on uud after the 18th Instant, the Hudson River and Harlem Roads would trail*- nort neither freight nor passengers beyond Hast Albany, leaving both to maUo their way across tho river as best they might, amt would reeelvn neither cheeks nor tickets from tho Central Rond. To counteract this arrangement, wo learn that the nminiurni of the Central have made a contract with tho Ilotualoulu Railroad, and fur tho present will send their freight by that and tho West ern Massachusetts road In Bridgeport, whence then) is communication both by tho Hound and thcNewilaven Railroad wlththls oily. The opening of tho Hudson River In the spring will of course introduce u new element into the light. While tho railroad men are thus cutting each other’s throats, we arc glad to see that the Legislature Is coming to tho rescue of the outraged public. In the Assembly yes terday. an motion of Mr. Wood, tho Railroad Committee, by a unanimous vote, was In structed to Investigate tho present quarrel, ard report such a bill us they might Judge expedient. In tho Senate, Mr. li. C. Mur phy Introduced n bill, which was promptly ptisseed by yens 10, nu>a none, which scorns ions to go to the root of tho nmltor. it compels connecting roads to sell tickets, check baggugo ana transport freight, with out breaking bulk, to all stations at which trains stop. In case of n disagreement be tween companies, IhuSlnle Hnglnocrls toaet ns umpire, and an appeal from Ids decision is to Ho to the Supremo Court of the Albany District, where It shall have preference over all other causes, no delays In transportation to be allowed while tho appeal is ponding. A refusal to comply with tho decision Is to sublcct the President uud Directors to a lino of £3,000 for each day’s neglect white the ease Is pending, and utter the decision of the Engineer iu court to a flue of £5,000 and Impr'sunmont in the county Jail for a period not exceeding one year. Set ting aside the merits of tho present controversy, of which wo profess neither to know' nor to care very much, we shall be de lighted at the passing of our measure which will teach railway corporations that they arc created for tbe public convenience, and not exclusively for the pecuniary emolu ment of their managers. And wo know of few companies which need this lesson more than the Harlem and the Hudson River. How fur tho new managers of the Central mean to study the comfort and safety of their patrons there has not yet been time to learn; but as to the roads which have so long had a shameful eminence for their in solent disregard of the convenience of travel lers and shippers, we are not without hope that the present battle may result in doing both them and as a little good. Tbc rommercc of NevrVork. IFrom the New York Tribute.) In 1554 tbe imports and exports of the United States amounted to $530,000,000, ot which New York had $3*8,000,000; while in 1865 the imports and exports of the United States amounted to $571,036,933, of which New York had $420,030,533.

A Cloud of Witnesses. [From tbe Rochester (N. Y.) Democrat, Jan. 19.] Tbe women of Greenfield, Highland Coun ty, Ohio, have a summary way of dealing with the much vexed liquor question, and in .) uly, 1865, they took the evil, so for as their own neighborhood was concerned, into their own hands, and made a general onslaught on all the taverns and. saloons they coaid find, staving in the beads of barrels, bursting demijohns, smashing bottles, and playing the mischief with drinking stock generally. The whiskey dealers combined to bring suit against these strong armed and minded fe males for damages, and the trial is to come off in a few days at Hillsboro. The most extensive ’preparations are be ing made to escort the ladles rfGreenfield, seventy of whom have been snbpccnsed as witnesses. Large wagons are to he fixed up, and their male relations will accompany them to Hillsboro, where the Court will be in session on tho HUh of this month. The ladies of Hillsboro, are making the most ample preparations to receive them as welcome guests, and they arc to be enter tained by tbc ladles of that place. There is little chance of a Jury returning verdicts against the husbands, so wc need expend no !*vmpathv on them. But think of the unfor tunate ushers of the Court; their duty to keep silence with seventy female witnesses in Court, each with a body guard oMocnl fe male friends I They deserve tbc heartfelt pit v of oil right minded people. tyWAIT nnOTlißli>. 1.20 l)rarb'iro*at.« receive odtcrtisouicnre tar all the lending payer* iltmuitNoat tbe rnttrit t*(nte« nod rnnmrns* JBuslcal. a lady WOO ISTBACniSO MUSIC ON THE NORTH SIDE. i!r»!r<**t‘’»rfnr"Afew mote pupt’s.
