MONDAY, JANUARY 2S, ISO 7. THE SENA'S K TAUIFF QH.L, , It seems probable that the Senate will V a *« the tariff bill now pending, which Is, in its main features, the same as the one passed by the House last session. The alterations made by (he Finance Committee, which were generally Improvements, are being rapidly eliminated, and by the time tbc bill gets through the Senate and the Conference Committees, it will be as bad as it was in the beginning, If not worse. (The lobby have turned their batteries on Senator Fessenden, and have beaten him one or *4wo votes.) There arc not six members of the Senate who do not believe, in thclrhcarts, that the bill Is morally wrong, that It is economically a blncdcr. and that it is fraught with extreme danger to the Republican parry, ivcmagc the statement upon our responsibility, that the number of Senators who believe that the Wills right, and that it ought to pass, decs not exceed fix. Yet they arc goaded on to passing It by an importunate uud merciless .lobby, whom they have not the corfage to resist. There arc a few Sena* tore, who sincerely believe that a prohibi tion of foreign commerce is the great desid eratum of this country. They would copy the commercial system of Paraguay and Japan if they could. They believe that the surest way to get rich and powerful is to fight off the bounties which Divine Provi* dcncc has bestowed upon other lauds, and produce them nt home at three times the cost. These philosophers would refuse to buy wool from South America because it i* *o chwp. The South Americans and South Af ricans give us ten pounds of wool for a dol lar. “No.” says Congress, “wc want only “two pounds of wool for a dollar. “Wc are for protecting home industry.” But the South Americans take our produce In payment for Ihclrwool, and if wc cease to take their wool thev cease to take our pro duce. For a barrel of flour they will give ws, say,*oi:c hundred pounds of wool. To pro tect American industry Congress enacts that the American producer shall not exchange his tairel of flour for one hundred pounds of wool, tut shall exchange U for twenty pounds. Sothc American producer of flour i- cheated out of eighty pounds of wool, besides losing u valuable customer la South America. But Ibis is not all. In order to prot»Tt American Industry in the mannei described, it becomes necessary to raise the prices cf clothing jour time •% when we raise the price of wool otico.. To get a dollar away from the righttul owner, and Into the pocket of the wool grower, wc must first throw four dollars into the sea. The woollen maimflictnrcr docs not want the tariff on cloth increased, unless the tariff on wool is to be raised. If the latter Is raised, however, be must have the pi ices ofbis goods raised in the proportion of/our cents per pound on cloth for everyone cent per pound on wool. Ami then the iron mongers, and tbv salt boilers, and the glass Mowers, and Hie cotton spinners, and every »-thcr interest that has a monopoly under existing laws, or wants one created, comes racing at tbc beds oftbc wool and woollen men ; and tbe net result is a bl’l to rob the American people of some hundreds of mil. lions of dollars, and- to give the finishing blow to our already crippled and declining commerce. It such a bill p.i*s°s Congress, wo hope Andrew Johnson will veto it.and if* he vetoes it, we shall certainly sustain that veto. More than this, wc shall point out cv-ry par ticular item of knavery in the bill, and so fur as we are able, show how It came to he there. Such a bill, if it passes, will cling to the Re publican party like a shirt of Nessns. The paralysis which it will inflict upon the In dustry of the country will be keenly felt about the time for the nest Presidential elec tion. We have now a tariff averaging fifty eight per cent in gold on all dutiable goods. The cost ofeverthingthal tin* American con sumer buys of foreign production (or of American production if the article is piotccicd by the tariff) Is fifty-eight per cent } igher, on tin* average, than nature and tlie lav sof trad*; would make it. Hence the American consumer must charge fifty-eight per Cf at more for bis labor and products t han they sre worth to mnk'* H'mHf even. But other countries, wMch h.iw gme "through the folly which prevails in Paraguay and Ja pan, transact business on the basis of buying and selling things for exactly what they arc worth. Hence they undersell us by fifty eight per cent, and drive us out of all the markets of the world, and cover the seas with a pi os porous commerce from which wc have been excluded by our own stupidity. Our trade wiib South A»**eriea has fallen to one-sixth of its former gr**a' nc-s. to tbe in jury of every “home Industry” that pro duced anything which entered Into that trad*-, and now Congress i* preparing to blot out the remaining sixth by putting a pro hibitory tariff on wool, iiiitor Grimes is right in saving that this I 111 will ben grinding burden on theagrieitl tme of the country. Evcty blow leveled at c-omnie a blow at agriculture. “Indisso “lublc bonds bind him who plows the land “and him who plows (ho sea,*’ said Daniel IVchetcr in one of tho.-e ponderous sentences of his. Every imported article has to be paid for with 'an exported article. Tbc American fanner is now paring for everything he buys fitly per cent more than it might Lc had for, and suffering from a diminishing foreign market, which Con gress I reposes still further t** diminish by a higher tariff. Meanwhile domestic manu- lactuivs in the aggregate are not it creasing, tbc prices of good? being -o high that people cannot (my them. And still Congress would make them higher I It this HU becomes a law, then upon the head? of those who pass it be the guilt ofthc IKditbul and commercial rnit which will fol low in-Up train. We will not defend robbery, nor apologize for fantastic fully in high places, TUP mo.SISSJI'Pf BitIDRKS. 1 here was a lime, but it has been a great while since, when navigable streams were protected by Jaw from nil That w;*-;»time, however, when navigable stream* afforded exclusively the means of travel from one part ol the country to the oilier. lint the world has changed. Stage coaches that were employed to carry pas sengers to and from the landing places and from one river to another, have de ported ; steamboats have been abandoned except for slow freights. In all parts of the country where the locomotive has pene trated. Rivers, instead of being the great highways ol navel, hive really become an obstruction to It, and that obstruction has been by authority of law, and in obedience to public necessity, overcome by bridges. The Hudson has been bridged ; the Connec ticut has been bridged ; the Delaware has been bridged; the Susquehanna has been bridged ; the Ohio has been bridged, and the Mississippi has been bridged. Every where, North and South, East and West, the great Interests of the whole people have been recognized as superior to the dcclining.thongh once controlllngliiflucnceof river navigation. But lids great change has not been accora pllsbcd by the destruction of any right or interest hi water communication. The light to bridge the rivers has been made subordi nate lo the requirement that navigation shall not he destroyed. The Wheeling bridge gave to the oppo ncr.ts of progress an admirable and a pro tracted reason for ventilating their know!- edge upon Ihc.subjcct of vested rights, and the law that navigable streams were the highways upon which the navigator had the exclusive right of way. But after years of controversy the right of the people to cross the rivers by bridges was judicially deter mined. Since then the Kock Island hrid ,r C controversy has been before the country, and all the river landings whose business was ft f. fcctcd by the direct Communication ottered by bridges, all the owners of ferry boats, all the keepers of hotels at ferry crossings, have been vehement lu denouncing the bridge. Various have been the means resorted to to destroy U. Vessels have been run against 11 purposely to make up eases of its destroying safe navi gation ; vessels have been pushed against Us Mipports and strangely discovered to be on fire. These and countless other devices having failed, Greek lire was employed in an attempt foaccoraplish Us destruction. The bridge still stands, opening to the country the free and direct means of passing from one Stale to another—from one side of the continent to the other. At Clinton, acme six or seven years ago, there was coiihlroclcd (mother of these bridges—another of the connecting links In the great chain of travel and commerce. It, too, has been on especial eyesore to Bl« Louis. Another bridge has been planned to cross tho river at Quincy, and Bt> Louis has been In arms. The bridge question has been determined long since by the whole people. Cincinnati, which n-o* tested so earnestly against the W.u cling biidgc, has built one of her own, bu - cross fnp the Ohio. The opposition to bridges bos given way to reason and ncccs-lty inull parts of the land S>. Loins. Every bridge buiU'on-the Mississippi River that city looks upon as n direct violation of the 'TCs{ciLrigM& of -St.—Louis In the Missis sippi River. St. Louis dlalms that all travel and freight, when it reaches the Mia. jslsslppl River, should take that stream and go to St. Louis. Bridges afford the means <if avoiding this calamity, land therefore bridges, according to the St£ Louis theory, oro intolerable nuisances, and should not be allowed. Si. Louis has had for years her delegation and her conrnUtcos at Washing* ton, horlrg members of Congress, and committees and Cabinet officers upon this subject. Every bridge on the Mississippi pours into the lap of Illinois d wealth which that city thinks ought to be hers. The bridge at Quincy will tap Missouri jat St. Joseph, and bring to Illinois Instead qt to St. Louis the commerce of Western Mlsiourl ami Kan sas, and the regions beyond. There is a bill pending In Congress, and already passed by one House, declaring the Clinton bridge a lawful structure. SI. Louis has bad a bill before Congress, providing a plan upon which nil new bridges mmt be constructed, and to which all the old bridges must be made to conform. : This plan amounts to a total prohibition of nil bridges over that river, and t.) a requirement to re move nil those now existing. It is an in genious fraud, which has been detected uud exposed, In Congress and in (ho press. Under these circumstances, the people of the Slate were doubtless astonished a few days ago to read that one bouse of the Illinois Legislature had been de ceived luto the passage of a resolution, pro. testing against the legalization of the bridge at Clinton. What St. Louis has not been able to do herself to the injury of Illinois, Legislature by this resolution proposes satisfy a court of law, orcither house of Con* gross that either the Rock Island or Clinton , bridges is a nuisance; and now she seeks to use the Legislature of Illinois to endorse her •elfish protest against the march of improve ment. The great Pacificßailroad, with the wealth and trade of half the continent, is rapidly progressing to completion. Already it has crossed the Missouri and the Platte. The Clinton bridge is now the great connecting link between the country lying cast of the Mississippi to the Atlantic, with that lying west of that river and extending to the Pa cific. The trains carrying freight and passengers now ran eight hundred miles west from Chicago, and the Illinois Legislature is asked to interfere and com pel these trains to be unloaded at Clinton, and be carried across the Mississippi on si Cat-boat or on the ice. Prom the bay of <an Francisco over mountains and deserts, across plains, and through forests, over rivers and through tunnels, the great iron art ry of Commerce and Union will meet with no obstruction, until it reaches Illinois. Will our Lcglslatiiic, at the demand of St. Louis, arrest this great work? will it break .he great chain which is to span the conti nent, and subject trade aud travel upoacu .vrit'g ami leaving Illinois, to resort to the *t. Louis system of ox teams and ferry-boats? We hope the Legislature will pass no such resolution as has been already pushed ibrouirh one branch. Let the resolution be arrested, and if any action is to be taken let U urge upon Congress the necessity of legal bang not only the Clinton bridge, but wherever else the enterprise and business of the country may demand one. Let St. Louis I cling to Use ferry-boat system if she will, but let Illinois keep step with the progress aud improvement of the age. . m:n.\ roit siiKiiai titvs st’Kßcn. ■ The speech of Senator John Sherman the other day, contained some curious errors. For example, hesaid that “ the rate of duties “to he levied on articles that maybe pro “dueed in this country* under this bill wil “not be less than fifty per cent ml valorem. “The pending bill proposed an advance of “ about tcu per cent on manufactures.” Senator Sherman is very well aware that the invoiced value, in gold, of the dutiable articles imported into tbe United States during the fiscal year ending January 39. IS(*6, amounted to $808,503,051, on winch the duties were $179,016,(530, which is IS 2-3 per cent. He must also very well know that the act of July S3,ISCG, added from six to eight per cent to the previous rates, making the present scale of duties 54 to 56 per ccut. ilc confesses that the bill before the Senate which he advocates will add ten per cent to tbc present tax on consumers, of imported merchandise, which will increase the impost on dutiable goods to Ci per ccut, at the very least. Such being the fact, why does he de* etaic that the pending bill will impose only 50 per cent, when the people are already paying 54 to 5(5 per ccut ? The average tux on the whole range of du tiable imports Is considerably less than tbc average lax on manufactures which may be produced :n this country- A careful exam ination of the present tariff on such mii-orts shows that the tax on them la not cth than sixtv per cent; and the idil winch Mr, Sherman advocates will add to tin* eirormuus Impest ten jh-t <•<»/, making seventy per edit in gold on the invoice valuation of .-uch utricles us may be produced hi ;his •-ouniiy. We an-determined that the people ofthc West shall not be humbugged and deceived in this matter. The American consumer* ol imj oiled goods are row paying a tux of .•>/>/ per cent in gold on all the mannfic nr, s they import from abroad. They fir-? •■nytbrtltc imported articles the market ; p.lccs thereof, and they next p.\y a .ax of sixty per cent in coin on i.c same, amt it is now piopo*ed to make them pay ten per cent more tax on the foreign commodities for which (hvy ixihangc their products! Is not rius present tax high enough? And ;s it not -i giors outrage to permit a ravenous lobby t«* f«»;ce ten percent more tax on then? What makes the thing still more rcprchor,- riblc is. that it is not the dralgn of (he bill or the lobby which <ls crowding it through Congress - ncrease the public revenues, or help the Gov ernment In anyway; but on the contrary, the object V* openly avowed to be, to de crease tbc revenue, and to make all the goods and wartfg consumed by the people of : lie United Slates, whether of foreign or do :i:r*stic production, t7rar«r to the ext.-ntof ' i In-increased tax proposed by the bill. If Senator Sherman will convince the ravenous, bloodthirsty crowd of spec ulators who tire Infesting Congress that hi.* hU\ will not enhance the price of docks of goods on hand ; that it will not make iron, coal and clothing of all kinds more costly to the people, the whole gang will abscond from Washingt-m without u moment's delay. Only convince the vul tures that there is no prey for them in the bill, and we shall bear no more of their men dacious pretence that an increu/tf of tax ation promotes and protects American in dustry. The Jacksonville Joumit accuses the Chicago Tiubuxe of saying that the people ol ibis city will never consent to have the Industrial University “ located In a city that trades at St. Louis in prclcrencc to Chicago.” Wo have to remark that we never said any thing of the kind. On the contrary, we have .‘ailed upon the Legislature to go forward promptly and locale the College according :o its own judgment, instead of assigning the task lo a commission. The Tihbuxe entertains no such narrow views as arc attributed toil by the Journal. If the j*opl«* of Jacksonville can get better bar gains In St. Louis than they can In Chicago, :hcy would be very foolish to come here; and if they should do all their trading in St. Louis, tliat would be no reason for refusing ;o locate the College in that city. The TonrnaV* double-leaded leader In answer to wbat we never said is entirely gratuitous. lSf~ Mr. Lee, late proprietor of Lee’s Opera House, In this city, has disposed of ids Interest In the same to U. H. Crosby, Ksq., for S2O9,(AX). The net profits on the ■ottery amount to about $300,000 in addition to the sum paid to Mr. Lee. But the value ■>f the Opera House is probably $150,000 more than the sum paid to Mr. Lee. The profits of the *• Art Association ” are, there fore, s**so,ooo to the “ Actuary.” The pub lie may reasonably hope to hear no more about the everlasting debt they owe to Mr. Crosby for building an Opera House. If he loses the whole $050,090 in the nest three tears, of course he will And distinguished gentl* men enough In the community to put him on Lis feet again. *sff Vallandincham, the Copperhead “martyr,” Is delighted with the rcceut de cisions of the Supreme Court. He has writ ten a letter in which be says that the satis faction he derives from them *‘is both great and sweet.” The praise of Vallandiogham will scarcely commend these decisions to the country.

C., January 23. One ot the most'’ interesting documents In the War- Deportment Ms a report made last /all by General J. J. Dana, In which is set forth very clearly and concisely what the Government has done and intends doing in' the matter of marking and protecting the graves of soldiers, who died or were killed during the war. This report is much 100 long for publication in any newspaper, and I therefore propose to embody Its essential frets and figures In a letter—-premising that it brings tbc record down only to the 30th of June, IS(W. EASTERN AND MIDDLE STATES. The principal points in this section where Union eoldiefe are buried are the following: Portsmouth Grove, Rhode Island, 293 graves; New Haven. Connecticut, 845 graves; Cy press Hill Cemetery, near New York City, 3.299 graves; Beverly, New Jersey, 200 graves; Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, 3,512 graves. In the Eastern States the graves were reported as generally in good condi tion ; in the Middle States as needing some The .Gettysburg Cemetery is on namented iron gates, and each grave Is marked with a granite head stone. The to tal number of bodies buried in the Eastern and Middle States is reported to be about 9,700, of which all but about 1.300 can probably bo identified. MARYLAND. The principal points in this State where I oiPvs were nuried arc Anlietum, number of graves unknown; Baltimore, 2.4:57 graves: Annapolis, 2,075 graves; Point Lookout, 3,523 graves; Frederick, about 1,103 graves. To tal uumber burled in the State, say 17,23*5; «t which probably 9,001 can never bo identi fied. The cemeteries at Amiapolis aud Point Lookout are iu excellent order; that at An lictam will eventually contain some 4,090 graves, but is yet very far from being even hell begun, and much time must elapse be fore it Is completed. WASHINGTON AND VIRGINIA. Here is the great cemetery of rebellion. A vast work has already been dime, under the superintendence of Colonel M- J. Lnd dingtonand Lieutenant Colonel James M, .Moore, but very much yet remains and the cud of the labor will hardly be reached be fore the end of 1807. The principal cemeteries already estab lished ate as billows; United States -Military Asylum cemetery, near Washington, con taining 5.717 graves ; Harmony, near Wash ington, 3,251 graves: Union, near Washing ton, 1,012 graves; Battle, near Washington, 10 graves; Arlington, 9,70-7 graves; Aiex aiultu, S.<jol graves; Huiper’s Ferry, l>*o graves; Winchester, 3,400 gr.vcs; Ball’s Blulf, 54 craves; Fredericksburg, 2.443 graves; Seven I’iues, 1,335 graves; Cold Harbor. 1.930 graves; GiendaU-, near Mal vern Hill, 1,077 graves; Hampton, 3,141 graves ; Bell Isle, 155 graves; Fort Harri son, near Richmond, 74bgraves: Oakwood, near Hie* mood, 210 graves; ami Hollywood, near Richmond, 337 graves. The dead have been disinterred fiom all points In Maryland and Virginia within a chcnii ■'f thlnj-flvc miles from Washington, iu d removed to the National Cemetery at Arlington. A large number of bodies now lying i*ei« een tbe Blue llidgc and the Rich mond & Frcdcrickshork Railroad, aud north ot the Rapp djammeg River are also being removed to Arlington. A vault has hecii cu.-t.acted there, near the old family man sion, to which ba •«; been removed such seat lured boms ami disorganized remains from the battle field? of Bull Run and Manassas as comd not be identified tor separate burial. Tne Fredericksburg Conieiorv will ulti mately c.i uoiii at least 15.0JU graves, that at Fort Harrison about 4,0 J.). that at Glen dale S.OdO, aud that at Winchester 5.700 One is bring csiahbsticd at Culpepper Court House, to contain 4,000. It is »Lv» prop »- -d to establish a veiy large one at Pctorsmirg; while those at City Point and Point ol Rocks will be enlarged. Almost every county in Virginia was the scene of a battle oi skir mish. ami the bodies now scattered through out the State arc aft to be disinterred and bnried in conveniently situated cemeteries. For this purpose, othcis will be located at Danville, Lynchburg, Charlottesville, and wherever elk* it is lo ml necessary. The whole number of bodies to be bnried in Virginia aud the District is up ward.* of 100,000, of wnich upwards of 45,1)53 remained, at tbc date of the report, to be relntcrred. Of the total, it is supposed that nearly half eau never be identified. The es timated expense of the cemetcrial work hero dime up to tide time is not far from a million of dollars. The average cost of the r. inter ment of each body Is eight dollars aud a (mil. THE OAKOLIXAS. The chief cemeteries in North Carolina arc the following t Wilmington, 2,350 graves; Goldsboro, 1,771 graves; Newborn, 1,832 graves; in South Carolina—Beaufort, 1 85f graves; Hilton Head, 1,000 graves. There are about 5,500 bodies of Union sdUi-rs in (he Salisbury prison pen cemetery, andunmii 3,000 in that near the Florence stockade. The whole number of bodies sunnos.-d to bo buried in the two Stales Is 17,635, of-which something moic limit half can never be iden- tilled—princit-ally (bite ut Florence and •Salisbury. The "bodies at Salisbury He In long trench s; and even if—as has been late ly reported—ifa record of burials has been fimiid, tbe separate bodies can never bo iden tified. Most oi Urn graves at Florence arc numbered, and a record was undoubtedly kept, but it lias not been found by ihc United Mutes forces. Should it ewr come to light, a ernsid< ruble proportion of tbe bodies buried there cun probably be identified. UEOUOIA. In tins Slate it is estimated that some 27,;AK) bodies of soldier? arc buried. Ot these t2,b12 arc al AvdeteonviUc, aud 1,‘.»12 *m the ir. neb* aof the prison pen at MtHcii. Ceme teries will be established at oavunnab, Ma rietta and Atlanta, for the reinterment of Imdic - scattered lliioughout the State—some 12.500 of which can probablv never ha Iden tified. n.otmiA. In Florida no steps have been taken lo waid cstablLbiiig national ecmeierl**«. Thu number «f bodies of soldiers buried there is small, and most of them now rest in post (vmelerios, where they icceivc all needful care. The principal one of these is at Bar rancas, where there nr,* 50J graves. The whole number of bodie* buried in the State is estimated ut about I,*AX»* of whleb not more than 400 can probably be tdcniiSeJ. ALABAMA. Two national cemeteries have been estab lished in this Slate—one at Mobile, expected to contain 759 graves, ami another of 835 graves at Montgomery. The bits lor these cemeteries were donoed by the rc-pective city nut Urn life?. TU? aggrogUC of soldiers* lunks burled m the Slate is about, 1,730; which about 1,250 can, ills thought, be iden tified. MISSISSIPPI. In thi? State sites for national cemeteries have been selected at Corinth,'Vicksburg, and Natchez, to which win i*e removed not only all thctraUeicd dead throughout the State, Int also tome fiotn southwestern Tennessee and northwestern Alabama, and nil those hurled on the west bank of the Mississippi Hirer, between New Madrid, M«>., and Vldalla, La. The cemetery at Natchez will belaid out for 2,000 graves. that at Corinth for 5,500, and that at Vicksburg lor 2.1,000. The whole number of bodies buried in the State Is roundly estimatedut 11,000, ofwhlch not more than 4,000 can ever be idcutiiicd. Not ranch had been done at the date of the report, toward laying out cemeteries or removing bodies. LOUISIAN*. Most of the bodies of Union soldiers buried In this State arc in cemeteries where they are well protected. At New Orleans there arc 3.103 graves, at Baton Rouge 2.152. at Port HmLsonSCS. All the bodies buried above Vidalla on the west bank of the river are to be removed to Natchez. The whole number resting In the State is estimated at 31,500, of which about two-thirds can probably be idcntillcd. TEXAS. The number of bodies buried In Texas Is small, say about 1,530, of which cerhaps 200 can never be idcntitlcd. The principal giavcyards arc as follows: Brownsville. 455 graves: Brazos Santiago, 245; Camp Ford, 232, and Indiauola, 121. Small graveyards arc found at various other posts, and bat very few bodies will be reinterred. ARKANSAS. Id this State there are supposed to be about 11,000 soldiers’ bodies burled, 5,009 of which It wlil be impossible, It is thought, to identify. There Is a cemetery at Little Hook containing 2,237 graves, and another at fort Smith with 1,217 graves. The large number of bodies burled ut Helena and other points on the Mississippi, wl-l ultimately be removed to the great cemeteries at Memphis and Vicksburg. TENNESSEE. This State, nest to Virginia, may be spo ken of as the graveyard of rebellion—the bodies of over U 7.000 Union soldiers being buried within Its limits, over 10,000 of which can never be Identified. The great cemetery at Chattanooga Is de scribed us having fine natural advantages. IQ contains one hundred and seventy fivo acres; Is located on ground admirably adapted for the pur pose, and substantially enclosed with a fine stone wall; it is well laid out in grace ful paths and beautifully ornamented with flowers and shrubbery; and a number of handsome monuments have already been creeled by relatives and friends of the de ceased. The national cemetery at Stone’s River battle ground is pleasantly situated on high ground, four miles west of Murfreesboro*. It contains sixteen acres, is laid out in a rectan gular form, with diagonal avenues from the comers to the centre, where It Is proposed to creel a monument costing $12,009. and Is nearly or quite surrounded by a substantia stone wall, lire feet high and two feet thick. At the national cemetery at Knoxville, containing eight acres, the graves arc arrang ed In ten concentric circles, with paths ra diating from the centre. It Is neatly fenced: the graves have been well sodded; trees, plants, and shrubs have been planted; the headboards arc now, and It is described a > one of the most attractive cemeteries of its size In tho country. On the line of the Nashville and Chatta nooga Railroad, about two miles west of Murfreesboro, Isa small aud neat cemetery containing twenty-nine bodies of privates from Hazen's Brigade, killed In tho battlo of Stone’s River In 1802. viz; First Ohio Volun teer Artillery.

GENERAL SUMMARY. Taking a connected view of the cometcrlal Operations throughout the United States, so tar as reported, it will appear that there were, June 80, 1566, forty-one National Cem eteries cither located or established and in operation. They contained 104,323 graves. Ten more were to be established, and the whole number are expected to contain 24‘.i.897 graves when finished. A large number of United States soldiers are also bnried In fonr hundred and twelve Ho-l cemeteries scattered over the country. The total number of Union soldiers report ed as buried throughout the United States is 841,(o0. The number of the s *m<; which can probably be identified is 202.7(51, or about threc-flflhs of the entire numner. The num ber of the same which cannot probably be identified is 133,909, orabout two-fifths of the entire number. The whole number of bodies reported ns relntcrred was 87,1504, and It was proposed to relator 135,531 more, making an aggregate of 223,543, op about two-thirds of the entire number. The average cost of re interment is about $9,73 per body—the range being from $4.03 in Mississippi up to $14.50 In Kentucky. ThcaggregatcofexpcndUurcs up tothc date ofthc report was $1,144,791.(51, ard the estimates for the year ending on the 30th of June, lSl>7, were $1,009,294.43. The report ofGcneral Dana closes with a recom mendation that the practice of marking tbc graves with wooden headboards be discon tinued; and that more permanent material, either iron or stone, bo used hereafter. He thinks the sentiment of tbc nation will not only sustain the expense ol this change, but will very soon demand that il be made. IsUAEL. FROM EUROPE. BY OCEAN IELEUKAPH, GREAT BCtTAtX.

Mr. Charles Randolph, of your city, appeared before the Railroad Committee of tho Senate list evening and addressed them for nearly two hours in favor of the warehouse monopoly bill intro duced by Mr. Ward. Ho was subjected to a crit ical cross-examination by members of tho Com mittee, and also by J. J. Richard j, Murry Nel son, J. W. J. Colton, and other opponents of tho monopoly *blli, who arc here from Chi cago. Mr. Randolph was followed by J. J. Richards, who vindicat'd the character of Eastman's bill. The committee at the conclusion of the discussion decided to place both Eastman's and Ward's bills in the binds of a sub-commlt'ce consisting of Messrs. Eastman, Waul, and Cohrs, with the power to report a bill embodying the best features of both bids. The bill ptepared by this sub-committee will proba bly be reported on Monday, and will be ncviy IdcLtical wlm ibo Eastman hill. There is scarcely a doubt but that it will become a taw. RAILROAD BILL.

Tbe proposed increase should not be allowed to be come a law. 1-ast year nearly 4,000 marriage licenses were issued by (he County Clerk of Cook County, paying him tbe handsome sum of about 54,000. lean see no reason why he should have £3,000 for the same service.

Ttis was carried. This fifth section will he so amended in commiuec as to require the trustee to first obtain the consent of (ho Board of Supervisor-* of Cook County, before taking possession of the road. In this shape it will ptohablypass. CASAU BOX. Tbc friends of tho canal improvement have malnred their bil l , and it will be presented in the lionfc on Monday.

Mr. Bocrwxu closed the debate. lie said, i in state more nanlcnlatiy than has yet been done, the cdn*Tuniioual and logical arguments b? uh:ch ibis bill Is supported. Among the enume rated powers of Congress istho power “To make alllaws which idiailbe necessary and proper for carrying into execution the roregoifg laws, and all other powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of lh«- United States, orinany depart ment or oiflccr thereof.” Authority Is also given bv the Constitution to Congress in these words: “But the Congress may by law rest the appolut , ment of sneb inferior offlccis as it mty deem proper, la the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Depart, meets ” These two prowdona of the Constitu tion sustain Congress m the exercise of two kmos of powers. First: The enactment- of all laws deemed necessary and proper to carry Into clfccf any ol the powers vested m any Department of the Government; and second, to author Ize Courts of ] aw ns well as Departments of Government to appoint all officers whoso appolnlmcut Congress may see hi to confide to them. We maintain this bill by ihcacclcat theory as old as the British law, of the official character of a chancellor or attorney at law. From the very first he has been ngarded as an officer of the Courts. The Supreme Court of the Coiled States in the Garland decision maintained that doctrine, but denied that a counsellor is tm officer of the Government- Tne Court ttacit is a Department of the Gov eminent. Every Federal Court interior to the Supreme Conn is a branch or jiuli cial agency of the Government, and therefore, when ton have demonstrated<>r admitted, a-* the Supreme Coon in snch cases ha? admitted, that an attorney is an officer ot the Court, it follows as a necessary consequence, from watch there can be no logical, or legal, or co’istiiutlonal f.-capv. that an attorney is an officer ofihc Uo.ctumcm, be cans*- the t oon IrscTis citr*"- a Department, or branch, or acetic? of the Government. Mr.nooatsdesiieaio ask a question; bat Mr. Boitwell declined to yield, and comirmrd Ins remarks. He mioted section 35 of the Ju'iciary Act of 17M’, to'he effect that, in all courts of tne Vintcd Stales, tim parties may plead and manage their own casee personally, or by the asslotauce of >uch counsel or attorney-at-law a? by the rales of tl-e court ghaU permitted to manage and con duct cases therein, lie ceiitended that, were It not for that act. the court would have no cossU iuiioial or legal power In admit attomevs to per- Josm thou facetious. Tbcrc'.orv, bv tau Con+tUu tion ai d law, he claimed to have established the , several legal proposition" from which, directly and inevitably, the right of the court to nass the rule was ocnled. and Justice Story had ounj years ago recognized the authority nf the Con gress in the matter. In the case of Keary and others against the I’srmtrs’ and Merchants* Bank of Memphis (repom-d In 16 Peter*, page ill ) It was or. these various consTtailomil and legal pro positions, in contorimty to the law o« the coun try, that the Judiciary Committee derived anv authority to pass any rale deemed necessary a* a piopcr lorthc pcrlormance of the duties that are devolved by the Constitution and laws on any de partment of the Government If Congress bad power to give to the courts power to mako their own rules. It had clearly the power to any particu lar case to prescribe caa- tiy and definitely the rule by which the courts shall be governed.

A Sno €nec of Snlrlde. [From Uie Cairo (1U ) Democrat, January *23.] The town of Anna, on the Central Railroad, in Union County, liilnoi?, vras startled yes terday moraine by the news that Miss Martha Stokes had committed suicide. It appears that the unfortunate youne Indy bod attended a party, accompanied by a young man of that town, and returning late at night the young man told ber that be 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 a ppcars this was crushing news to her. and she determined to rid herself of life, which had as she supposed become a burden. She however controlled herself, as to any outward demonstrations, but slyly procured a lot of arsenic end swallowed nearly two teasnooos full. Her friends soon noticed that she was HI, but she con tinued to deny it when asked, and Anally they sent for Ur. Condon, but when he arrived not Ling could be done and the unfortunate Url expired at two o’clock yesterday mom §diss Stokes was an estimable young lady, having a large circle of relatives living near Anna, nil well to do farmers. She was stay ing in Anna with her brother, and It was here the formed the unfortunate acquaint ance that has resulted so tragically. So far as we could learn there Is no blame attached In the young roan, for whom she had con ceived so strong a passion.

V.V.V.V I(fro£m6l' 'utui'US As wilt be seen from lae above, the clearings for the week jnst dosing. show a decrease of some two millions as compared with those of last week. This most conclusively demonstrates that tbc gen. eral business of the city shows no Improvement. Trade In all departments continues dull. Tncrc Is uo demand for goods beyond what will meet actual consumption, and dealers purchase only enough to provide for the most pressing wants. Country collections are reported exceedingly slow. Tbeintcrformerchonts complain that thefatmera arc not paying up, which presses severely oni those dealers uho are trading on a small capital- Many of them are forced to ask for renewals, tod a larger number of extensions have been granted during the present winter, than at any time since the breaking out of the late rebellion. Ihe great feature of the week in financial circles was tbe panic which broke out in Wall street on Wednesday, causing a severe tumble la stocks, particularly those known as “fancy.” Cumber land Coal, which a few days since sold at 32, burst completely ard sold on the day o r the panic at S 3. Tee bursting of this bubble cawed the failure of one house, who bad loaned largely on the Cum berland at a slight margin. Railway share?, with few exceptions, suffered a sharp decline, causing j several other failures. There is, at tbe close, a , steadier fcohug In tbe stock list, but prudent op erators and conservative bankers act exceedingly cautious, and in some circles the opinion Is freely expressed that tbe end Is yet to come, la finan cial circles throughout the country there is a growing want of confidence in the future. Con gress Is admirably illustrating “hownol to doll.” without any immediate prospect of over changing its policy. Meanwhile Mr. McCulloch’s reckless contraction system is steadily pursuing Ibetvco tenor ol its way, to the enforcement of specie re sumption, and at the same time prostrating trade, lying np capital,paralyzing industry,and drying np the sources of reronneneeded to defray the expen ses of the Government, and pay the Interest on the National Debt- If Mr. McCulloch wonld see this country negotiating ft loan to pay the Interest on what it owes, he will persevere to his insane scheme for the resumption of specie payments. In bis last budget to Concrcss.he talked eloquent ly about tbe Increase of production, as one of the means to secure a specie basis, bnthia plan! of contraction has no other effect (ban to rcaiovo!tho primary cause of an increase of production cheap money. It Is a well known fact that money is daily becoming dearer and scarcer in every city in the country.
