SUMNER oflered a resolution instructing tbe Judiciary Committee to Inquire Into tbe expe diency of amending tbe Civil Rights BUI to ex tend Its operations so that when the residents of an; State, being citizens of tbe United States, are debarred from an; ptivtleges of the citizens of sneb States, then all cases arising out of an; ofience against an; sneb residents of tbo one pan, and any citizen ot sneb State not debarred from an; of the privileges thereof on tbe other part, stall be beard ana delivered by tbe Courts of tbe United States, and not by the Coarts of tbe State. Mr. SUMNER asked for Us immediate consid eration. Mr. BAULSBURT objected, and the resolution goes over. Mr. CHANDLER moved that tbe Senate take np tfac reso.ntlon offered b;blm on Saturday last. Instructing tbe Judiciary Committee to inquire whether Andrew Johnson, Vice President and acting President, bad any authority to appoint Provisional Governors for the States recently In rebellion. Mr. Chandler eald: “ I think Ibis resolution very Impoi tant at Uilb time. If »hc President bad no authority of law under tbe Constitution lo ap point Provisional Governors for tbe States lately in rebellion, then the action of those Governors tails. There bare been no Governors established over these States, if tbe inception Itself was illegal. Now, sir, 1 desire that tbe Com mittee on tbe Jndldnry should make an early report upon this subject It is due to tbe President, to tbe country, that these points shall bo settled and settled at an early day. 1 am nor t lawyer, and am hardly comp-dent to decide for myself, still lees lor the Senate, whether (here was any such authority. We know. Mr. President that when Andrew Johnson, through tbe bullet of J. Wilkes Booth, became President of tbe Umtea States, tbe rebels bad laid down tbelrarms. and all of these rebel States were held by military powers, and under these military powers Andrew Johnson bad a right to appoint milltarr Governors, not only lor every one of tbe States lately In ro belllou, but for every city, had be seen fit so to do. The laws of war arc as well understood as the Constitutive and laws of peace. They rego Inte end control all civilized nations. When PrcMdcntLincoln desired a Governor m Tennes see be appointed Andrew Johnson Brigadier General In tbo army, and aa Brigadier General In the United Stales Army be appointed blm Military Governor of Tennessee. This be bad a nsbt to do ns Commander-in-Cbiet; bat, sir. It is a different thing to appoint a Provisional Governor. J believe, sir. it is an office unknown to the Constitution and laws of onr Government, ord an office which, in my Judgment, be bad no authority to create. These Gov ernors were not sent lo tbe Senate for con firmation. Nor would It hare made them an; more Governors, if we bad confirmed tbero. because tbe Senate and Andrew Johnson together coaid not have created an office If there was not authority of law. Then it required the House of Representatives and Senate and An drew Johnson, having first enacted a law creating an office, before an officer eonld bare been ap pointed. Under the law* of war, asl. hare said, we bad a right to bold these States by military power and lorccs. These laws of war have been changed from ago to age. They are arbitary. They are simply tbe will of tbe conqueror. Un der the laws of war in ancleot times, prisoners of war were remorselessly put to death. These laws from age to age become modified, ‘ but as late •• July, 1806, the laws of war empowered the conqueror to levy all expenses of the war upon the conquered. If Au di ew Johnson, In violation of the laws of war, in violation ot the Constitution, and without author ity under the laws of war, has assumed ana exer cised a power that did not belong to him, bm which belonged lo Congress, then. 1 do not hesi tate to mt. anA «rttW demrenaon. *<u.t lur tbie one act, and for this a)nt>«, Atmrew Johnson should be im]>esched. I say It, sir, as one of bis Judges. 1 say it, sir, understanding the force of wbat I say. Mr. Chandler continued: But there are other allegations made against Mr. Johnson. It lr alleged, 1 know not whether true or false, that Andrew Johnson delivered over properly seised from tbe rebels, in railroad rollin'* stock throughout the South, without authority of law to rebel railroad agencies, and that Ibe railroad « oiling stock sent.from tbe North, worth miiy ndJUous. was, without anihoriiy and In violation of law, by the express authority of Andrew Jouo son. sold on credit lo rebel railroads. If this be true, 1 say Andrew Johnson should bo Impeached and removed. tu lUf aliened again. 1 know cot whether true or laiw, that Andrew Johnson, without authority of hw, and m violation of Jaw, ordered thecolW t on or tbe direct tax levkd oa tiese rebel StaW to be stopped. If true, Andnw Johnson should be removed and impeached. Jt 1b alleged, 1 know not whether true or false, that Andrew Johnson made appointments, daring the recess of the Senate, by removing Incumbents! and dining the late lons session or Congre««dJtl rot »«'d ID© names to the Senate at all, hut on ad journment, without coniulllng the Senate, and In d J rc £ Vl( >latlon of the Constitution and tls oath or office, her. appointed thrs; men, never bavins sent them to the Senate at all. If Übe true, An drew Johnson should be Impeached. Mr. Chandler denied that the President had soy light to have a plan after it bad b cn rejected by Coi.gress. LethtmoboT the laws, or disobey them at his peril. There Is a oread, ho said, that we. In executing our Congressional powers, win bring some dreadful calamity on thm nation. This nation has come vlctOiions ont of the most terri ble rebellion thewoitd ever saw. The removal of the man who bos violated the Constitution of the United States would produce about the same amount of excitement in the coonoy that the removal of Custom House offl- Jj • , Jfty would prodneo.

Messrs. DIXON, FESSENDEN aod POMiROT opposed ihe rerelnuon, for the reason that, as the Senate might be called upon to fulfil the Junctions of a high comt of impeachment, they ought not to order an investigation of anything which might terd *o make them other than impartial radges On motion of Mr. GRIMES, the reflation was tabled wiibont division.

SPIBITTAUaM IX THE PATENT OFFICE.—A curious application far a patent has been made by a New Yorker for a process to de termine the falsity or truth of spiritualism. of a room closed perfectly, so that all light and air Is effectually excluded, ex cept air for breathing, which, is admitted “p® * ftop-cock, opened from time to time, f-jijot is only admitted by being passed through a darx blue, violet, or black liquid, so that the room Is perfectly dark to the un accustomed eye, but becomes slightly Illu minated when remaining long in'it, the in venter asserting that the particles of common light are much too heavy and solid compared with the much finer constituents of the bodies of spirits; therefore common light passes through them, and is not reflected Jf°“ sui face; to see spirits at all, the light mttii be filtered. Tno room Is to be tainted with spirits of turpentine or any other spirits mixed with substances akin to enrben. The Inventor asserts that wilh these precautions it may become possible for the inmates of the room to see spirits, Si 1 .?* 01 ', Ebosts. He claims the use 01 filtered light in a closed room for the pur °» divination. The patent was re ln»ed, on the ground that when a company or persons were for some time enclosed in *J K,n, » without sufficient air to breathe, they win not only see ghosts, hut also give up their own. b WASHINGTON. Meeting of the Chief Officers of the Army. Their Views on the Southern Question. General Thomas’ Plan of Eccon- strnction. How the Generals Stand with Respect to the President's Policy. {Special Correspondence of the Chicago Tribune.! Was macros. D. C., February C Generals Thomas, Sheridan, Schofield Canby, Sickles, Warren and Pope are here! and Genera! Sherman la expected on Friday or Saturday. The presence of so many mill* tary officials In Washington at tbe same, time la not the result of chance, though some of them were called hither by one or another of the nnmeroos Investigating com mittees now at work. Nor Is their presence of such special and paramount importance as some persona would have the country believe—as will, perhaps, appear If it Is re called that a similar meeting of Depart ment Commanders took place about this time last year. Notice was given at Headquarters in December that nearly all these officers would bo called upon for testimony before the end of the session, and the gathering takes place a lit tle earlier than It did In 1860. Most of them, however, would have been called here If they had not been wanted by Congressional com mittees. Last year General Grant desired counsel regarding the new Army BUI and the reorganization of tbe various departments. This year he wants counsel on entirely differ ent questions. I may, perhaps, say that the Indian ques tion is at least of no secondary importance various letters from Grant, Sherman, Pope, and others, have been published, from which it appears that they believe an Indian war is impending. Hundreds of reports from minor officers, oa file in the War Depart ment, express the samo belief or apprehen sion. The minority report of the House In dian Committee Is very strong In Its declara tions as to the danger of an outoreak. The ; evidence taken by that committee la full of indirect warning. The House debate on the bill transferring the Indian Bureau to the War Department showed that many of the wisest members of that body look upon a conflict as exceedingly probable. Gen eral Grant does not hesitate to say openly that another six months of Interior Department management will render it absolutely inevitable. How this grave difficulty thus threatened is to be warded off, how the outbreak Is to be met if ,it comes—these are questions on which Headquarters desires the counsel of its chief subordinates. The Indian Bureau will go back to the War Department; of that there seems little doubt. Whether the energetic measures already taken by General Sherman, coupled with the change that must follow a transfer of the Bureau, will be sufficient to prevent the dreaded outbreak remains to he seen. It is no secret that nearly every Southern commander is much dissatisfied with tho Southern situation. The military is almost powerless to repress or correct wrongs. Tho President’s order and the Indiana decision of the Supreme Court have practically put it under control of the rebel State Courts. Generals and their subordi nates see and hear, but may not act. Hard ly a man of those who occupy responsible positions is content with things os they are, or with the prospect for the coming year. Of course, more troops would be of no avail unless more power were given to the mili tary. The old rebel leaders are rapidly re covering their standing and influence; and, as a consequence, Unionists and freedmen dally find their condition changing froth bad to worse. General Sickles wants power and troops In Carolina; General Schofield is snubbed and taunted in Virginia; General Sheridan reports that Texas Is a little hell; General Thomas says there is no place in hU Department where a loyal man can get any thing like justice before tho civil Courts. What can tho military do In the South to advance a true reconstruction, how can the troops he mad^agents of civiliza tion, what advice shall the war force of the country give to Congress and the Executive In the present emergency—these are questions on which Headquarters asks the counsel of its chief subordinates. General Thomas appears to have ponder* ed the Southern question long and deeply. He alone of the great Generals, so far as I can learn, has a definite and comprehensive plan of action for the crisis. Everything Is managed, ho says, In the interests of the ex-rebels. UnionistSjlive merely by sufferance, und most content themselves as best they can, perforce, with the crumbs from the table. It has been stated in some quarters that he advises the exercise of “a supervisory military con* trol.” This phrase is deceptive, or, at least, It less than half expresses his Idea. His plan is briefly as follows: Let civil officers, styled Commissioners, be appointed by the Presi dent and the Senate, for each of the Southern States; they should be of sound judgment, large knowledge of law, and of unquestiona ble loyalty and sympathy with the Unionists and freedmen; give them jurisdiction in all cases between oz*rcbels and Unionists, or ex* rebels and freedmen; make their decisions final in all matters involving less than dollars; in more important concerns let there be anappeal to the United States Courts; cs* tabllsh it as the paramount duty of the military to sustain-these quasi-ju dicial Commissioners and enforce their decisions; keep the military from any direct interference with civil affairs, except as they are apoue under control of the Commission ers ; allow every man to bring his case before these Senatorial appointees; continue this mixed supervision of all affairs till the State makes all men equal before the law, and ceases to know race or color In the adminis tration of justice. This, as I understand, Is, in the rough, the plan of General Thomas. Von will observe that U contemplates a par tial return to the condition existing under Grant’s famous General Order No. 3 of last year, bclorc the Issuance of the President’s Peace Proclamation, except that the word for Interference must come from a civil appointee instead of from the Commanding General of a Department. The first difficulty in the way of its execution Is that the President would I never appoint Commissioners of the right sort. 1 shall only pat into print what everybody -ays in private conversation, If I state that every one of the great officers now here sustains Covgress and the country in demanding guar antees from the South before readmission to Con gressional privileges ; and, so lor as I can learn, not one of them will be satisfied with the constitutional amendment proposed by the President and the rebel Governors. General Sickles speaks in very strong terms of the necessity for thorough work ; General Sheri dan says It would be madness to restore the leaders in Texas and Louisiana to authority; General Schofield expresses himself cau tiously and moderately, to the effect that Virginia Is sot yet reconstructed on a loyal basis ; General Thomas admits grave fears that loyalty will be entirely extermin ated unless Congress steps in asd gives it succor; General Grant himself, reticent as he Is, no longer conceals bis feeling of pain and apprehension In view of the situation. 1 must not be understood as Intimating that these gentlemen indulge in denunciation of the President, or demean themselves un worthily of their great offices; but that they are not on the Presidents side in this con test Is evident enough to anybody who chooses to see—lf by no other reason than by the fact that they have no fellowship with the Presidents friends and take strong Republicans for their associates. This rule Is thus far without an exception. Iseael. .tilDc Sickness—An Important Discov ery- t Frcm the Labyette (Ind.) Courier, February 9.] The cause of this terrible and inscrutable malady has long been a profound mystery, and the large rewards offered for its discov ery, while stimulating Investigation, have as vet thrown hot little light on the matter. A large amount ofmoney has been spent in In vestigation. We learn from the Indianapo lis Journal that Mr. Nathan Brown, of Sulli van County, In this State, living between Carlisle and Wabash, In a neighborhood which has suffered from the epidemic ever since It was settled, thinks he has discovered the secret. He is a plain, sensible old farmer, with no pretensions to scientific knowledge, and his experiments, consequently, ate only what every maa may make who choose. He says it is a vegetable of quite common growth In the affected local ities, easily recognized and removed. He first satisfied himself of this about four years ago. A calf, which he had allowed to ran at NUMBER 249. large on his farm, died in the fall of the disease. He cot it open, and found in Its stomach, entirely undigested and almost unchanged except by chewing, a quantity of a weed or vegetable, which he recog nized readily by~both smell and appear ance. The coats of the stomach were as dry as a board, and apparently incapable of di gestive action. The smell of the weed struck him peculiarly from Us similarity to the odor of the breath of men and beasts sailer ing with the disease. The line of investiga tion suggested by these discoveries he deter mined to pursue. The next fall ho bought a large healthy calf in a neighborhood never afflicted by the ** sickness,” and fastened it is a pen where there was nothing to cat nor drink, except what was given It. It lived and flourished finely for a few days. Then Mr. Brown cut a quantity of the suspected weed and fed It to the calf. It very soon showed the usual marks of “nxilksickncss;” *°d died. The next fall, which was that of Ifcoo, he put a lot of sheep on tho poisoned pasture. They were attacked directly, but driven off before they had eaten enough to kill more than two or three of them. All. however, were so weak that they gave out in travelling a short distance, which In good he £l . would have been a trifle to them. Their breath smelled very strongly of the weed. Last fill he experimented, in the presence of witnesses. He had cut some of * dried it. He procured another calf from a healthy locality, and fed it the dried substance. It waa speedily attacked, and the witnesses, both old aetUera,and fit miliar with the disease In every form lo the cattle and men,.at oncclprononnced it “milk ?. Having satisfied himself that he had discovered the mystery, he applied lost vear to the Legislature for a committee to investigate the matter. Nothing was done, however, and he proposes lo apply again. The French Senate* A Paris letter-miter says: •• it. Imres Is the one hundred and thirtieth Senator who has tiled since the foundation of the French Senate, and amonc those one hundred and thirty are fitly of the original memhers of that body. The army has Tost nineteen Mar shals, who are members by right of their rank; six Vice-Admirals, ana thirty-two general officers. The number of min ters, or persons who had been min isters, who died Senators, la not less than seventeen. There are now five cr six vacancies In the Senate, four hav ing died since September last, namely: the Marquis du Boisey. M. Thouvenel. the Mar mils .de Larochejaquelcln and M. Ingres. No one Is as yet named to fill the post of t»/and Referendalre, left vacant bv the death of M. Thouvenel. General Montanban, who commands the great military division of whldn Lyons Is the centre, has been offered it. He declined, as he prefers retaining his command, and naturally looks forward to the Field Marshal’s baton. The post is. in fact, asinecure.” Plm Llehnac of noaeow with Gas. The London Jfomiruj Pom pohliahes an ac count of a curious ceremony performed at Moscow on the 27th of December last, when the old Russian capital was for the first time lighted with gas. At two o’clock a “Te Denm” was sung at the gas factory, which was, moreover, solemnly consecrated. Then ‘“Cff was a grand banquet, after which the officials and the principal guests proceeded t° the Kremlin,where a platform covered with red cloth bad been prepared, close to the cathedral of St. Michael. At half-past four tbe’Mayor armed himself with a taper and ap preached the nearest lamp, of which the tap was already In the hands of an aide. At the word of command the tap was turned, the gas was lighted, a military band to play the national hym, and the music was continued until the whole Kremlin was illu minated, as well as a largo portion of the exterior city. Assisting a Fnixro.-A Mrs. Smith, residing on Jackson street, hid the misfortune a few days ago to get Into the Bndewell, and left behind her a very young baby. In the house where she hid dwelt was Mrs Ann. Cnriese. who kindly cared for the young Infant, though pot to much Inconven ience thereby, nntll the happy idea struck her of pawning a trunk with clothing belonging to Mrs. Smith to raise money to get her ont of Bridewell by paying her fine. The tmnk was taken to the store of one Lyman Abrahams, on Van Boren street, whose license, U appears, la omy for bay. iogand selling property. Realising 57.50 for the articles, Mrs. Cnrlesa still required a small sum to makeup the necessary amount to. secure her friend’s liberation. Brfore accomplishing the de sired object she was arrested for the larceny of the trunk, and was yesterday afternoon brought before Justice Mllliken She was held lor fur ther examination this aftemooa In hall of 5-200.
