Washington, January 23.— Immediately after ward, the Speaker called the House to order, announcing that the House would now. in con foimity with the agreement of yesterday, proceed to rote on tbe passage of the bill. Mr. Borrwxxx closed (he debate. He said, 1 wish to state more particularly than has yet been done, the constitutional and logical arguments by which this bill is supported. Among the enume rated powers of Congress Is the power “To make all laws which shall he necessary and proper lor carrying into execution the foregoing laws, and all other powers vested by this Constitution ia the Government of the Untied Stales, or In any depart ment or officer thereof.” Auinorlly Is also given by the Constitution to Congress In these words: “But the Congress may by law rest the appoint ment of snch inferior officers as it miy deem proper. In the President alone, in the Courts of Law. or in the Heads of Depart ments.” 'these two prtm«ions of the Constitu tion sustain Congress In the exercise of two kinds ofpoweis. First: The enactment of all itwa deemed necessary and proper to carry Into effect any ol the powers vested in any Department of the Government; and second, to author Ize Courts of law as well os Departments of Government to appoint all officers whoso appointment Congre*s may see hi to confide to them. We maintain ibis bill by the ardent theory as old as the British law, of the official character of a chancellor or attorney at law. From the very first he has bfvn regarded as an officer of the Courts. The Supreme Court of tbe Coiled States ia the Gailsud decision maintained that doctrine, bee denied that a counsellor Is an officer of the - Government. The Court Itself is a Department of tbe Gov ernment. Every Federal Court inferior to the Supreme Court is a branch or judi cial ageuev of the Government, and rberotore, when von have demonstrated or admitted, as the Supreme Court in such cases has admitted, that on attorney Is an officer oi the Court, it follows as a necessary consequence, from which there can be no logical, orlegal, or constitutional escape, that an attorney Is an officerofthe Government, be cause the Court Itself Is either a Department, or branch, or arenev ofthe Government. Mr.ltoosnsdeshedto ask a question; hat Mr. Doimvxu. declined to yield, and continued his remarks. He quoted section J 55 of the Judiciary Act of 175-9, to the effect that, in all courts of tae United States, the parties may plead and manage their own case?* personally, or by tbe assistance of such coun«el or atioraeyrat-law as by tbe rales of tie court shall!*- permitted to manage and con duct cases therein, lie contended that, were It not for that act. the couii wonld bavenocoaslt •mit ral or legal power to admit attorneys to per lorm their (Unctions. Thei clore, by tae Constitu tion ard law. he claimed to have established the severs! legal propositions from which, directly and inevitably, tbe right of the coart to oa*s the ntl<* was denied, and Jnstice Story bad many yean ago recognised the authority of (he Con gress in the matter, in the case of Rears aud others against the Farmers’ and Merchants'Bank of Memphis (reported in -18 Peter*, page H.) It was on these various constitutional sod legal pro positions. In contormlty to tbe law of the coun try, that the Judiciary Committee derived any authority to pass any role deemed necessary aud proper tor the performance of the duties that are devolved by the Constitution and taws on any de* t ailment of the Government. If Congress had power to give to the courts power to make their own rules. It had clearly the power in any particu lar esse to prescribe exaruy and definitely the rale by which the courts shall be governed. On that statement he submitted the matter to the Bouse. Tbe House then proceeded to vote by yeas acd nays oo the passage of the bill, the vole resulting —yeas, 11/9; nays. 42. The Uc*poti»m of Eugenie* [From the Philadelphia Ledger.) There Is no evidence that the Empress Eugenic is not as absolute a despot as ever over the fashions ami fashionable women of civilized nations on both sides of the Atlan tic. What she says and what she docs upon the subject of dress still carries with It impeiial and universal sway. If she fees

fit on one day to command that the skirts of dresses shall be thirty yards in circum ference, her will Is instantly obeyed, and sttaicbtway the skirts of all the women in Christendom arc expanded to that ampli tude. It, upon some day in the following week, she takes it Into her capricious bead to have them made gore fashion, without a fold, re sembling in their new shape an old fashion ed cedar milk-churn, all the skirts immedi ately take that form. And so too with hats and bonnets. Should she command that they arc to tower a foot and a half above the hcatl, or to nroject to the same extent In fiont. like the* eaves of an olden-tlmo pent house ; or should she direct that the front of the bonnet shall recede un’il it is no longer visible, leaving the head bare and unprotect ed. or If Indeed she should ever appear with a single leaf upon the crown of her head In lieu of a bonnet or a hat. either of these changes Instantly becomes the ruling fashion ; In every place where fashion has votaries. The same observations apply to extreme costliness and extravagance In dress. If laces and silks, and velvets and Jewels take her fancy, and she appears for even one day in them, to an extent thit would absorb the whole year’s Income of a successful business man, it will straightway become indispensable for all fashionable women to display those expensive articles to tho same amount. The results of this latter 'influence may bo easily traced in oar annual exhibits of foreign Imports. The gold ol the country and our national bonds go abroad in ’argo amounts to pay for them. TbU Is one i f the evil effects of the fashionable rule of the Empress, that Is foil by the public purse as well as by the private pockets of the na tion. and one that affects the Interests of the body of the people, as well as the im mediate followers of fashion. It Is. there fore, not out of place to ask whether the time has not come for the women of the united States to emancipate themaelrt-s from the thraldom of the Empress Eugenie, as the nations and people of Europe have freed themselves from the power orherhusband, the Emperor? KIDD. Tbe Pirate and Ills Treasure. [From tbe New York Evening Post.)' Every year or two we hear of some new attempt to discover the bidden treasure of Captain Kidd. Now It Is In Nova Scotia, now at Lynn, Mass., then at Coventry, and often at points near New Haven harbor. And yet very few know the story of Captain - Kidd’s wanderings. We present below an authentic sketch which Is almost as good us romance ; The slave trade being a legitimate pursuit of trade ar>d followed as a regular branch of foreign trade for many years, both pro vions and subsequent to 1600, was exceedingly profitable, though somewhat hazardous, owing to piratical adventurers who fol lowed them into- their remote trad ing places, and often robbed them of their stores and money used in the purchase bf negroes. This practice became so great a pest to tbe mercantile in terests that efforts were made by influential merchants of New York to induce the Eng lish ministry to assist them In fitting out a cruising vessel, properly armed, to act against privateers. Colonel Robert Livingston, of New York, an active and Influential citizen, brought this matter before the English Government, : and introduced Captain William Kidd, of New York, as an efficient and well-known commander, whose fitness for such a service was well understood in New York. He was a man of family, and had resided In this city for several years. It was proposed to engage In this enterprise on the footing of a private adventure, although It was also desirable, lor some purposes, that the scheme should receive the official countenance of the Government. The King, Lord Somers, the Earl of Romney, the Duke of Shrews bury, the Earl of Oxford, and Lord Beile mout joined in making up the necessary ex pense ol a proper vessel, Colonel Livingston also contributing a proportion. The profits were to be divided among the owner* of tbe ship, all', wing a liberal share to Kidd. A commission was issued, Decem ber 11, 1005, under the great seal of England, directed “to the trusty and well-beloved Captain William Kidd, commander of tbe ship Adventure, galley.” He set sail from Plymouth in April, ICWS. and arrived on the American coast, where he continued lor som»- time, occasionally entering the harbor of New York, and vblting his family in the city. He was considered useful in protecting our commerce, lor which he received much applause, and tbe assembly of the province voted him the sum of two hundred and fifty pounds as a complimentary return for Ids services. Scon after this be left this vicinity for nitre -active operations on the coast of Africa, and U was not long ere the astounding news ar rived that Kidd had commenced the trade which he bad been engaged to subvert, and •had committed several piracies. The report of flit so facts coming to the public knowledge in England, the circumstance was made the subject of a violent attack upon the Govern ment by the Opposition party, and In the ex cess of party zeal it was alleged that the Kinghimsclf, and those concerned in the ex pedition, wore privy to tbe piratical adven tuie and sharers in its profits. This charge havitg some color of foundation, from the ac tual circumstances of the case, made tbeques tion a subject of State inquiry, and thus the name of Kidd, though personally less oh noxious to the odious characteristics of bis profession than many others In history, be came, from its associations with a partisan warfare between the greaUmeu of the State, the most famous among the pirates oi the world. The noblemen engaged in tbe enter prise underwent the form of a trial for their lives, but were acquitted. The-principal scenes of Kidd’s piracies were on the eastern coast of Africa, at Mada gascar and the vicinity, where he captured and rifled several vessels, without, however, so ftr as we have been informed bv history, committing extreme cruelties on his cap tives, the only person proven to have been killed by him being a seaman of his own, named William Moore, whom he acci dentally slew by hitting him with a bucket for insubordination. Kidd hav ing amassed a fortune by this cruise. Information of his depredations in those re mote parts of tho world had reached the scenes of his home. lie brought bis vessel iuto Long Island found iu the year 1600, and went ashore at’s Island, then owned and occupied by Mr. John Gardiner, to whom, from some midlscovcrable motive, he made known bis desire to bnry a quantity of treasure on the island, and did accordingly deposit in the ground u considerable quantity of gold, sil ver and precious stones, in the presence of Mr. Girdincr, but under strict injunctions of secrecy. This deposit consisted of eleven hundred and twelve ounces of coined gold, two thousand three hundred and fifty ounces of silver, seventeen ounces of jewel? and precious stones, sixty-nine pre cious stones, fifty seven bags of sugar, forty one baits of merchandise, seventeen pieces of canvas, one loadstone, Ac. Having thus disburdened bis ship he de parted for Boston, with the design, it is supposed, of selling his vessel. While there, however, he was recognized in the street and apprehended. lie was sent to England for trial aud indicted for the mur der of William Moore, before spoken of, and being convicted, was hanged in chain-* at execution dock. May 12, 1701. The wile of Kidd continued her residence in tills city after Lis death, herself and daughter living In seclusion in a habitation on the east side ol the town. A FASHIONABLE SHOPLIFTER. Arrest of a Respectable Married Woman Tor Systematic Shoplifting In SC. Louis, [From the St. Louis Democrat, January 23.] On yesterday two well-dressed ladles en tered the drv goods store of Harden ATullcr, on Fifth street, and were waited upon by one of the polite clerks of that first-class house. It seems that, warned by past ex perience,tbe proprietors have found it to their advantage to Instruct their clerks to keep strict but respectful watch over the movements of strange customers who ap proach their counters, and in this case the vigilance of the cleikwas not exercised In vain. While one ofthe ladies was busily engaged in looking at various articles spread out be fore her, tbe clerk observed tbe other lady handling a bolt of silk In a suspicious man ner. He said nothing, but kept both his eves open. Looking around, and thinking she was not observed, the lady adroitly slip ped the bolt of silk tbrongh a slit in her skirt and it disappeared from sight. She was accused ofthe theft, aud of course, osserted her innocence. A search, however, decided the matter, and the silk was fished ont. The other ladv satisfied the merchant that she hud no hand in tbethclt, and was not molest ed, but her companion was attested and taken to the police office. Policemen are so accustomed to dealing with criminals that they have not os much delicacy of feeling as other men, and tears and entreaties have no effect upon them when thev believe the weeper to be guilty of felony. They proceeded to search the lady. She was terribly agitated, and the proposal to search caused her to falut. Iu a few mo ments she recovered, and the search pro ceeded. Again the conscious stricken fair one collasped. and fell over in a faintingfit. Again she revived, and the unhallowed hands ot the officer made free with the folds ot her skirts. It is a sad thing to tell, bnt the truth must come out. Under tbe smooth folds of the ladv’s dress were found two good sized sacks, made expressly for receiving such articles as the owner might chcose to slip Into them from the opening in front. In these sacks were found several small articles, which were ascertained to have been stolen from another dry goods store. The lady gave her name as Mrs. Caroline Emerson, but we learn that her real name is Mrs. Augusta Emerlck. Her husband U ‘drummer or travelling agent for a first-class wholesale house in the city. The other lady I* the wife of a clerk or bookkeeper in the same store. The firm in whose house the woman’s hus band is employed were notified of her arrest, and she was balled out In the sum of $2,000, to appear this morning before the Police Judge. She has been in tbe citv but a short time, and her parents reside In Michigan. The Earlyncwspaprr Press In America, (From the New York Evening Gtsette.l An interesting lecture was given before the Young Men’s Christian Association last even ing, at their rooms, on the corner of Fifth avenue and Twenty-second street, by Mr. William L. Stone, a gentleman connected for many years with the Commercial Advertiser* and lattcrally with the Journal of Commerce. The lecture was on “ The Early Newspaper Press in America.” its history and founda tion. The lecturer remarked that wo were indebted to the devil and Dr. Fanst for the Introduction of printing, and he was certain that they still continued to exercise an In fluence over the press, which has become such a formidable engine of power in America. The first press was established at Cam bridge, Massachusetts, in 103 S, eighteen yean* after the landing of the Pilgrim Fath ers. It was supported and obtained by con tributions from England and Iloliand, and it was forty years before any other was es tablished. Stephen Day then introduced one for priming Indian* Bibles: be kept a strict watch on his printer, and held him in bonds not to copv the work. This la sup posed to have been the origin of the copy right act. Day, however, got Into trouble hy making love to a young Puritan lady with out her parents,»consent, which was a pun ishable crime in those days. He had, In ad dition, left a wife in England, so he was fined five pounds, aud ordered to go home to his first love. The first paper published in the country was tbe Boston A’ttos Letter* in 1701, which contained the Queen’s speech aud an account of the doings ot Prince Charles, the Pre tender. It was printed on a half sheet of loolscap. The news from England was ecu etaliy fire months old, and that ttom Wash. inpton from seven to ten davs. Tire first paper in this city was the New York (rosette, established by William Bradford in 1725. Among U« curiosities was a slave adver tisement, and another which shows that our ancestors were adepts In the art of puffing; It reads thus: “Whereas, the wife of Peter Smith has left hie bed and board, be begs to cantlon persons against trusting hen as he will pay no debts of here. N. B.—Best garden seeds sold by Peter Smith at the sign of the golden hammer.” In 17&L the first libel suit was commenced! and the first newspaper war. In those days the tyranny of the Star Cbamber and Arch bishop Land was surpassed by the Illiberall ty of oar American forefathers.

Haw Iherare Jladc-A Great Confec tioner and His Liquid BotlDons —Fancy Baskets—Tbe Shop Ctrl*— How They are Cared of tbe Bonbon Disease* [Fans Correspondence of the New York Bveaicg Post, January S.J ■ As a cseftil diversion from the extravagant expectations for April and tbe Exhibition that have so long excited the Imaginations of the Parisians, come the extravagant actu alities of Christmas and New Year. Under the benign influence of the season the shops have bloomed Into sudden luxuriance, like hedges of roses In June. Old establishments appear In unexpected splendor, and new ones appear, to enjoy an ephemeral existence. The windows on the Rue de la Paix are as gorgeous as palaces, while wooden booths, erected a’l along the Boulevards, display a cheaper magnificence. A GREAT CONFECTIONER. Among the most celebrated shops in the Hue dt la Pair is that of the great confec. tioncr, Girandin, who is calU d. not a confec tioner, but an artist. Tic Invention of a benbon , the perfection ot a cAocufttf, the preparation of a nevijai, preoceupv him as much as if the question coneemcd‘the solu tion of a national problem. Between the conception of bis ideas and their execution days, nights, weeks, months even, sometimes elapse. He almost forgets to eat or drink ; he enters, like Archimedes, into a state of sublime mental absorption. At last the great day arrives when his Idea is completelv de veloped, and may be given to the world. He arouses himself and exclaims “ Eu reka !” Then follows the second Herculean labor —that of finding a name for the new creation, and nil the quarters ol the world, all the epochs of history, nil the vicissitudes of politics, aie ransacked for this purpose. A Choiscul, an Emilio, a Mont Blanc, a Coude, an Abouklf, a Maltese, «re some of the titles applied lo his cakes and prrlint* and puddings and tartlets. IIOW BONBONS AUK MADE. M. Glrandln’s palace ol sweet delights is built over deep cellars, where myriads of workmen, with naked armsand faces Illumin ated by the glare from the furnace fires, ex pend strength suited to the forges of Vulcan. In manufacturing bor.boM for women and babies. Progress and science are Invoked in aid of this manufacture as strenuously as for others of moie importance. Various methods of candying have been invented, popularized, and then thrown aside. Great pains have been exnendcd on tbe accurate sculpture of moulds for imitations offrults and figures. Complicated machinery for the ; preiaratibti amt sugaring of almonds lus been brought into service. The Ifytuur bon bon* arc made by a special process. The mould ore filled with a syrup, whoso crystal llzahlc constltutents arc precipitated upon the periphery of the mould : a solid exterior is thus formed, while the interior remains liquid, and guarded from evaporation. Dur ing the lust month the Mahon Giraudlu man ufactured one million four hundred and for ty-four thousand ionion#, exclusive of all other confectionery. One kind of boifbm, Invented by Girardin, named “ LetEphemerea” luia become espe* dally famous. “Sir,” said an epicure who had lasted tlilsdh/flbnare, “yourachieve ment Is not a 6o»ison—it Isa caress!” “Upon my word of honor,’’ said another, “one might swear that he had all the flowers of Paradise In his mouth 1” “For my part,” said a youth, timidly, who had been present at the trial, “when I Lasted it lor the first rime, 3 could have believed that Theresa was kissing me!” itre sugar plums*” The boxes that hold them turnish a field for infinite Ingenuity. The paper hag has been replaced by a box ’of enamelled paste board, white, blue, rose or magenta col- ored, tied with a ribbon of the same shade. The Lancrct basket is composed of u hand kercblel of point iV Alencon, the four corners of which are raised by four bouquets of dow ers, and arc held by two handles covered •vith satin. The Trianon basket is coquet 'shly pretty, made of rice straw, garlanded with branches of roses, or of straw of gold lined with white satin ornamented with grapes made of pearls. The Mignon box, ornamented with a portrait of Ary Shtelfer’s mignon, Is called, next to the Lancrct bas ket, tbe great success of the season. tub saor miiLs. Girandin employs thirty-five girls in the -ales department of his house. Those girls, who all board in the bouse, are watched over with peculiar care, “lie exacts of them.” -ays a writer In the Figaro, “not only zoal and diligence In their business, but also the most ferocious virtue.” “ Mademoiselle,” said M. Girandin, on re ceiving a uew clerk, “ remember that you arc here to sell sweet things, and not to hear them.” M. Girandin adopts a singular method to prevent the girls from stealing the sugar plums. The first day of her arrival the hew clerk Is shut up for a day in the room where 'he reserves are kept, with permission to help herself freely to whatever she wants, She does not fail to avail herself of this per mission, and enjoys the feast so much that «he ie sorry to be liberated from the place of confinement. But in a little while, she Is seized with such a violent indigestion and heartburn, that she bitterly tenants of her greediness, and becomes disgusted with sugar plums ever after. ** I have in my employ,” said M. Girandin, “girls who for six years have never put a donoon to their Ups.” The Earthquake at Alder*. The following letter to the London Time* gives an interesting account of the earth quake which occurred at Algiers on the 2d of January: “This morning, or rather yesterday morn ing, (as It la now nearly the dawn of the next day.) I washwokc towards eight of the morn ing, I think, by a verv strong shock of an eaithquako, particularly awiul, not only from its sharpness but bv its singular mo tion, quite differed from tbe trembling mo tion one generally feels acd hoars described, and which reminds most people ‘of a heavy wagon passing by*, 1 as one often reads iu ac counts ; but tills one ftdr like being in some thing, a box, for instance, which was being shoved along by several angry pnshers over rongh ground, but always In one direction. “The movement came distinctly from the sea. and went inland, and the moment it lasted tbe bonse seemed hopping from north to south, and proceeding onward that way. It was indescribably terrific. I sprang up from tbe bed, and was jerked forward. I called all the people, and we went down In to the court, aud sat there about an hour and a half, notwithstanding the rain, which fell for the first time since two months. Then, thinking It was over, we again went up to our apartments, bnt soon after a slight shock ofthe usual trembling kind was felt, and some minutes afteranotherstrongerone, of a swinging motion, bnt without the dis placing sensation of tbe first. Since that we have bad no other. I hear in the town the con sternation is great. Some bouses have fallen in, nil tbe people are silting in the rain in the open places, and all t be Jews have Oed Into the fields, shutting their shops, Ac. A telegram irom Blidah announces the fall cf foity houses in that town, and the town of Medeab has also much suffered. One of the wails of our bouse Is cracked, and the gar den walls are rent from top to bottom. It is true they were old, but still it is awful to see. Another shock is announced, Ido not know why, and so none of ns sleep this night; a man is placed near the great door to open it directly he feels-anything, anil urn sitting up in my bed, whence I am writing. Other circumstances make the night most dismal. My rooms arc all leaky, and tbe rain pattering in the tin basins out to receive it makes a most melancboly sound; tbe whole day has been most dreary, as «ben It rains a tomb-like chill pervades tht house, w hich no fire can dispel, and the little old-fashioned Moorish windows let in hardly any light. Altogether, I am very much impressed, and tbe fear* cold, wet. and waking, make me feel very uncomfortable.” A Charming Connin'. The Shreveport (La.) Southrrexfem , of the ?Oth ult., says, under the head of A Good Day for Killing “Last Thursday was a good day for shuf fling off * the mortal coll * in this city. Early in the morning a worthy young man, clerk ing in a store at Mugcmsville, accidentally dropped his revolver, which canscd it to go off, shooting him tbrongh the body, causing instant death. Later in the day, a freedman and his son got into a quarrel about a rule, which resulted In the son shooting his father through the head, killing him instantly. Late that night n gambler, called * Banco,’ subbed to the heirt a man named Turner, at a ball given by -tbe nymphs du |pa<v, on the comer ol Edward and Texas streets. Turner lingered a day or two and expired. Banco made his escape. Turner was a carpenter by trade, but was oftcuer found about the drinkiug saloons than in the shop.” Deatb of Alexander the Seoul*h Poet* fFrom the New York Tribune.) Mr. Alexander Smith, well known as the author of “A Life Dtama” and other poems, died at Warriic, near Edinburgh, ou .Tannery sth, after an illness of several weeks.

SterliDg Price* George Alfred Townsend, writing to the Cincinnati Commercial, furnishes an enter taining sketch of a few incidents of his lectur ing tour in the West, with the following about Sterling Price; ‘T won’t ask you to print this without a wafer of news upon It. Last Sunday I saw iu Si. Louis, at the dining table ot the South ern Hotel, Sterling Price, a splendid name for a soldier; almost good enough to be a dromati*pertotur. He was one of those gor gons of the rebellion, of whom wc read in the East, picturing to ourselves a bearded energy, young and'unquenchable, like Sheri dan or Storeman. I saw before me n poor old man, whom peace and honor had made plethoric, whom war had made bald and lean. Ills great shoulders bent under their dwindled flesh; his feet were shrunken in their gaiters and rattled tike a pair of spore; he had lost the battle-light from his eyes, the bronze from his knuckles ; his voice of command was lost so that the waiter bent to his lips to bear his choice of soups. Desti tute in his disappointed age, the spectre of a dining-table, one-half the guests who looked upon him pitifully had been his soldiers in the war. Three times he swept Missouri— slew Lyon, stormed Mulligan, bearded Jetf. Davis. Now he cats like the seventh stage of man. His son sits by him—married but lately to a cousin, the daughter of a Federal General Price—and they are going to give him a purse in St. Louis tu make some merry rat lie lor his froslydays.” A Sad Case or Sulfide* ' fictown WXnnaJ on TK6 Central Railroad, in Union County, Illinois, was startled yes terday morning by the news that Miss Martha Stokes had committed suicide. It appears that the unfortunate young lady had attended a party, accompanied by a young man of that town, and returning late at night the young man told her that he was going to marry, naming the girl. Miss Stokes did not believe him and so expressed herself, when the young man showed her the license. It appears this was crushing nows to her, and she determined to rid herself of life, which had as she supposed become a burden. She however controlled herself, ns to any outward demonstrations, but slvly procured a lot of arsenic and swallowed nearly two teaspoons full. Her friends *oou noticed that she was ill, but she con* tinned to deny it when asked, and dually they sent for Dr. Condon, but when he arrfvcd nothing conld be done and the unfortunate i;lrl esplre'd at two o’clock yesterday morn ing. Mies Stokes was an estimable young lady, having a large circle of relatives living near Anna, all well to do farmers. She was stay ing in Anna with her brother, and it was here she formed the unfortunate acquaint ance that has resulted so tragically, do far as we could learn there is no blame attached to the young man, for whom she had con ceived so strong a passion.
