FROM WASHINGTON [Special Despatch to the Cbicago Tribune.] Washington, D. February 25. THE Lt)NG JOHN SMELLING COMMITTEE. The Wentworth report caused great merri ment in the House to-day. The statement of the testimony oi the self-constituted Pres idential ambassadors shows that tlio whole thing was gotten up by them, and the fid that so many were led into what proved a trap appeared in-a ridiculous light. No one, fioni the first, except Lung John, seems to have dreamed that the mee’ings bad any rolcrcQcc to impeachment, and that part of the investigation tailed utterly. For the rest the report agrees with the accounts al re; dy given in this correspondence in ail its material leatures. Mr. Wentworth evidently does not pride himself ou the closing net of his congressional career, fur he was very anxious to have the Committee discharged and the mailer hurled as quickly and de} ceutly as possible. THE TARIFF BILL was reached in the House about the middle of the afternoon, bnt the reading of t he Sen. ale amendments was not concluded until S o’clock. Over on hour woa llien spent, in a noisy and confused wrangle on points of order relating to the method of procedure. When this mutter had been settled, the various recommendations ol amendments from the Ways ami Means Committee were taken up and acted on seriatim. There arc two hun dred and sevcniy-flve of these, and in the first hour, viz.; from nine to ten o’clock, action was had npon thirteen* only. About one hundred and ten members were present, and the division on each amendment was so rear equal that one side or the other inva riably called for tellers. The House was In excellent humor, and seemed to regard the'whole proceedings as an excel lent frolic. The bill was made to lake ef fect ten days after Its pasrage. The various amendment* in the section relating to wools and woollens were apparently acted upon without regard to any principle, for while mme were carried hy four or fire majority, others of a similar character were lost bv about tbe same majority. At half past toil when tw6nty amendments had been acted upon, the committee found Itself without a quorum, and a call ol the House was order ed, a quorum was obtained, and the House lluu by a small majority, adjourned.

THE NAVAL ACADEMY. The House opent two hours this afternoon over the proposition to remove the Naval Academy from Annapolis, two or three Mary land members speaking as .vigorously against 11 as though there hail been danger of its passage, and then rejected tbo motion by yeas 37, nays 108, BILL IOR THE RELIEF OF IKON-CLAD CON- TRACTORS.

Tlic measure, os it came from the Committee on Appropriations, was cut down to the low est figuic of Hie War Department, but the House added a clause that only one-half the amount appropriated shall be expended this year.

The House went into Committee of the Whole, Mr, Thayer In the ebair. and took up the bill making appropriations for sundry civil expenses of the Government. Among the items of appropriation was $50,000 lor the dome of the Capitol. Mr. Scofield, (Rep.) of Pa , inquired of Mr, Stevens, when the expenditures about the Capitol were to be expected to cease. Mr. Stevens, (Rep.) of Pa., said that if his colleague would ask his (Mr. Stevens') suc cessor, *omu twcuty years hence, bis ques tion might he answered, but gentlemen should recollect that the construction of a groat cd flee like the Capitol required a lit tle more time and money than the putting «p of a sawmill. fLauchter.) Mr. Scofleld suggested that his colleague’s reply was more witty than satisfactory, but he, (Mr. Scofield) bad no idea that the Capi tol was to remain at Washington. The ac tion of Congress last session in cutting down mileage would tend to Us removal, because, when Western members could no longer make fortunes by their mileage they would insist on its being moved Westward. The fact of there being only a single line of rail road between Baltimore and Washington, to connect this citv with the North and West, w<>uld also have Us effect on the question of the removal oj the Capitol. . Some items fur public buildings being read, tbc amount which is to be disbursed under the superintendence of the Comm!-- sinner of Public Buildings, B. B. French, Mr. Schecck offered an amendment pro viding that no part of the amount shall be reserved to pay Mr. French’s services as I’oct Laureate of the Administration, lie said that the Commissioner was one of those gentlemen who belonged to that class which are always in office, and bad always a good deal to’do for himself and hla friends. He M;i t up and had read a poetical effusion, in handbill shape, entitled “Andrew Jackson at-d Andrew Johnson,” the reading of which m-ated much amusement In the House. The document declares in verse that— - Wbe-e Jackson stood now doth another stand, T he favored rmer of oar favored land. With neart ay pure and patriotism as great, A second Andrew steers thf ship of mate. It also refers to A dcteixnlocd clique who rant find nve, Divide and ruin, not unite and save. But the consolation of the poet is that— The end approaches, that sublime event. The people rallying to their President. Tbc Republicans laughed derisively at the poetry and the sentiments expressed in It, but some of the Democrats applauded both. The ana-rdment was agreed to.

Mr. B ENTWORTU reported that the Spe cial Committee, of which he was Chairman, had useci tained that the story of a corrupt bargain between members and the President was derived from observations made by re 1-orUis In the gallery, and conjectural infer tr ees therefrom. No testimony bad been given allccting in the least the integrity of the President or members. There was not ihe least knowledge obtained byftlvc com mittee about the reported proposition of re voneillatlon between the President and mem bers, nor had the committee any reliable ex j relation of obtaining such knowledge. Mr. GLOSSBUENNER made a facetious statement ol similar purport. On motion of Mr. WENTWORTH, the committee was discharged from the further »onsidcration of the subject. The Senate amendments to the House res olution prohibiting the psvmcnl of claims to any person not known to be opposed to the Mbcllicn, was acted on.

LAUNED, ESQ., who has been here for the past two weeks, representing the Interests of the people against the gas monopolists, left this city, to-night, for Chicago. Qo has failed in bis mission, not from the want of a Just cause, or untiring and intelligent persistency on bis part, but from a force of circumstances which neither of these Influences could con trol. The monopoly has exercised a power which is far beyond and above either with the men here, who seem to bear the relation of representatives of the people, bat are In fact the representatives of that man or body of men who can control the biggest ling, or supply the most money. Mr- Lamed will submit u rcpoi t to hts constituents, when he reaches Chicago, which will make at least two men therein named squirm like skinned eels in hot fat. LITTLE FULLER is here yet, and will probably remain here until the last hour. I don’t believe that his business during the session wll pay ex- penscs. THE LOBBY THINNING OUT. The Leland House lobby begins to look thin; ditto, the State House lobbies. A “banquet hall oeserted” is the best simile I can employ as to either. Many of the faces who have ornamented them will be known here no more fur ever. Amen. EVENING SESSION OF TUB HOUSE. The House was in session this evening-, and passed a large number of bills in omnibus and singly. Among them is the bill to build the Southern; Penitentiary, by & vote of ■l3 to 32. This is the last of the swindles em braced in the big ring. Another important bill passed was the one Known os the Com promise Park for the benefit of the people of •■South Chicago, Lake and Hyde Park. Messrs. Singer. Bond and Reynolds, of the Cook County delegation, voted against the bill. So this issue, which has been betore the General Assembly since an early day of the session, has been settled only at the last mo ment. A MILL TO PUNISH THE CONFIDENCE GAME. Among the bills reported by the Judiciary Committee of the House to day, it having already passed the Senate, was one to pun- ish the crime commonly called the confi dunce game.

MR. 6UEPARD AND THE NEWSPAPERS. Mr. Shepard arose in Lis seat this morning and Intimated that he had been attacked by several newspapers. He felt very sure that the persona who had attacked him did not know enough to discriminate between right and wrong, truth nrd falsehood, and then took his seat. Mr. Shepard is a young gen tleman of wonderful modesty, brilliant intel lectual capacities, livr above and beyond tbo nvetugc of men of bis immature age, and in differently honest—us honest as his counec ih.u with the law, legislative and lobby linn of Fuller, Ham & Shepard will tolerate, i UiIlU he Is foolish lo pitch into the news papers, because he is sure to get the worst »f It, as he lias during the whole session. It is true the newspapers were sharp enough to defeat Ids nice little schemes fur plundering the public, but that is no reason why he should pronounce them frols. POOR OLD JOE FORREST was pronounced mi unmiUgated ami per* HisUiit lior on tlio lluor of tlio House this morning, by Mr. Singer.

THE CHICAGO HAimou AND LAND IMPROVE* WENT COMPANY. Among the bills ordered to a third rending h. the House is Seente bill No. 237—u hill to revise uiul mnend the Chicago Harbor and bund Improvement Company, with amend mcntii thereto. The otgliml ineoi ponders are Roswcl. B. Muson, elms. Walker, I’aul Cornell, Elliott Anthony, nod two other persons now deceased; to these are added m the hill the nnmeti of J. H. Muhlkc, J. G. Osborne. X. J. Frost, C. StioUney, iiul F. 8. Howe. The original bill gave power to the company to construct n Imrbor at or near the mouth of the Calumet River, and n cenul leading from the harbor into the Illinois ard Michigan Canal on the South Branch of the Chicago River. For these purposes the company have power to cuter upon end condemn lands belonging to the State, persons or corporatipns. To this grant is several provisos which this new hill re- peals, one of which Is that before building the canal to the South Branch, they shall first obtain consent of Hie Common Council of Chicago; and that no canal or ditch shall be constructed which shall divert the Calumet River from the Illinois and Alicbigan Canal or Feeder ; another, which prevents the company from interposing in terrupting or entering upon the landsof any railroad ; another proviso, which says this act shall not be so construed as to authorize the construction of the piers, wharves, break- waters, slips, basins, channels, docks, har bors, or any other works on Lake Michigan, or to dig np. excavate, or enterupon the bed of Lake Michigan in point of any land owned by any Individual or corporation other than the corporation hereby created, except with the consent of the owners tbcicof, or upon full compensation be ing made, which compensation shall include the value of the right to Improve such land by building piers and docks ont to the navigable portions of the lake, and in no event shall any of the structures of any des cription be erected in front of any park in the city of Cbicago. I say all theabove pro hibitions on the original bill arc repealed by this bill. This may be a fair and square en terprise, bnt it looks to me like another big Pier and Dock Company. The names of the corporators are highly respectable gentle men. The new bill gives the following ad ditional powers: to buy and sell real estate, make contracts, lay out highways and streets, dig ditches and drains, borrow money, mortgage lands, erect houses and other bnlldmgs, and may establish and maintain outside of the city of Chicago, at or near the crossing of the Illi nois Central and Southern Michigan Rail roads, yards for the accommodation of dro vers and all other persons engaged in buying and selling cattle and all other live stock, with all the powers and privileges now pos sessed by the Union Stock Yards, and with power to condemn lands and to connect tracks with various railroads. The main purpose of said company is declared to be the purchasing, exchanging, leasing, Im proving and reclaiming wet lands ami lots in Cook Connly. Capital $500,000, to be in creased to one million.

WALTHAM WATCHES We claim, and are prepared to prove, tint the American Watchca manuiactired at Wa!th\m, M »• eachnsetts. are not only equal, but Car inferior, to ibe watches cf England, Bwiaerland and France. We alio claim that they are CHEAPER, MORE ACCT BAT£, MORE- DURABLE, and more emily k-pt in omw ami repaired than any other watches is ibe market. Bscanae is each one of theverynamfroua parts ot which a watch ft made up, we attain, by michant cal power, nearly ati9luie mathematics! prccliloi a- d uniformity, making every wauh ot any one style a tree copy of Its model.- This similarity in structure redness the aost of pro doetton ;» secures nd.’bnnltr in results; lUn/alHh’y perpetuates any excellence that may be once achieved, and make? it easy to repair any injury sustained, or replace any part that may be lost or destroyed. la addition to these mechanical advantages, oor Watches are- simpler In etrncture, and therefore stronger, ‘and leas likely to be Injured than foreign wakhes. How they rtaunfer the hardest trial watcher can have, is shows by the foLowlce letters t PENNSYLVANIA RAILROAD COMPANY.

As you are aware, w« formerly trusted to those of English tsannCictnre, of acknowl edged good reparation, hut as a class they never kept time as correctly, nor have they done as good ser vice, ss yours.
