The House gallery was well filled till midnight, and sixty or seventy gentlemen remained in there aU i ! ght, watching the proceedings till ut four o’clock this morning, a’:d then stretching out on benches I t three hours sleep. The attendance of tl:e members was good throughout the whole night session, several votes by tellers J ' tween 4 and 7 o’clock, showing over one Lmmred and ten present. The best order and good feeling prevailed from first to last, and not more than wo members In each branch arc in any f!--gn c censurable fjr breaches oi propriety through intoxication. Much of the time of the House during the nght was occupied with discussions of Con f ieuce reports on the legislative bills, and with debates relative to the Choctaw In dians. The Senate, after coming out ofExccutivc session, about day break, took up tnc Dell, clency Bill. A considerable number of bills remained on the Speaker’s table at the time <■! the recess.

Among the yeas were: Dixon, D .olitHe'aLd Patterson. The bill went to the j resident last u'ubt.

Thenceforward the H'.usc conferees insisted on tbe right of that i-otly to raise the salaries oflts clerks by re- Motion, which tbe Senate con t-ret-s etrennoualy rejected. Toe lower 1 itich was so determined on this point U-ui it seemed at one time as if the whole liil would be lost; but flnallv, at Mr, Mor t:T>. urgent plea, the House backed down, tbv clerks lost their extra pay*, and the bill passed about daylight. THE FOETI FI CATION BILL, Zt finished by the Conference Committee, agreed to by both houses, retains Le klund’g section providing that but half of ‘•V appropriation shall be expended this 3<ar, and authorizes the War and Navy Departments to test largcigun?. &c.

Washington, March 3 —The Senate baa confirmed the nomination of John A. Dlx, Minister at Parle, and Hugh Ewing to be Minister Resident at the Hague. TUB NEW HOUSE. There seems to be a general understanding (bat the House of Representatives of the Fortieth Congress will to-morrow effect a partial organization by selecting Mr. Colfax to the Speakership without any previous formal arrangement. There appears to be a common acquiescence ‘in this compliment to that popular officer. It is Srobabie that Mr. McPherson, Clerk of the ouse, will aUo be re-etcctcd to-morrow on the same ground. A caucus will be held to morrow evening to determine oa candidates for Doorkeeper, Sergcant-at-Arms, and Post master. Mr. Ordway, the present Sergcant-at- Arms, as yet has no competitor. Colonel Given is candidate lor re-election as Post mastcr of the House, and Governor Hamll ton, of Texas, is also mentioned as a caadi date. The great contest will be for Ha- Doorkeeper.

Washington, March 0. SENATE. SATURDAY EVENING’S PROCEEDINGS. Several private claim bills passed. The veto ot the Reconstruction BUI was taken up ul 8:30, and read. M. JOHNSON made a speech giving fall credit to the conscientious purpose of the President, but regretting that, he felt com idled to come to the result he had, and to -•end this message to Congress. There were many propositions contained In the message which could not be maintained: •i.tny errors of judgment which, «l*on examination, would be apparent. He (Johnson) saw nothing bnt ci'Diinued turmoil, danger and error to the south. He then explained why he should vote for the bill. Ten States of the Union are virtually held as provinces upon the ground that we have a right to hold them as enemies of the Union and Government. In that state of things, to hesitate In adopting •my measure which promises, even the most distantly, to put an end to this revolutionary condition, was, In his judgment, false to the true interest ard safety of the country. Mr. SAULSBURY expressed his approval of the veto of this the most iniquitous bill ever presented In the Senate, and hoped the Miuthern people would never enter the Union ..n the terms presented to them. Mcsrrs. HENDERSON, DIXON and BUCK ALEW endorsed the veto. Alter further debate, the bill was passed over Hie veto—S3 against 10. The cays were Messrs.

The Deficiency Dili came from the House and w. s read. Fending the reading, Mr.EDMUNDS made a icport from the Conference Committee on ,e Leuslativc Appropriation Bill.

The House is still in session. .After the compliment to Mr. Colfax, the House went into committee on the De flriency Bill. The last section, appropria ting SOOO,OOO, and to give bonds for f93j,0C0 more, to carry out toe stipulations of the treaty with the Choctaw Indians, gave rise to a long discussion, in which Mr. MORRILL characterized it as a greater grab than he bad been prepared to see attempted even on the last night of the session, while Messrs. STEVENS. HASSON, GARFIELD, and FARNSWORTH, supported the appropria tion and repelled the allegation of fraud made by the opponents of the measure. Finally the committee rose to close de bate, and the debate was closed. Mr. HENDERSON, while the Speaker was In the chair, moved, at ten minutes past one, that the House take a recess. The SPEAKER informed the Honae, as he said it was his duty, that unless the Appro priation Bills were reported back in this night session from toe Committee of the Whole, passed by the House, sent to the Senate and passed, then sent to the Commit tees of Conference, and the reports of the committee agreed to, they would probably be lost unless the President should sign them without loading them.

[The present reporter, who bis occupied tbc position for the last two sessions, le* pels tbe imputation of his being in tbc slightest degree biased by partisan feelings in the preparation of bis reports or in any other way, and be can certainly say as much for bis predecessor. If any complaint were to be made against biin on that score, it should rather come from the Republican side, because out of regard lor tbe weakness of tbe opposition, be gave really more than its proportionale share of Us reports, and Mr. LeBLOND himself got certainly more than bis lair share of attention.—Reporter.] On motion of Mr. HILL, tbe vacant panel In tbc glass roof of tbe hall of tbe House was assigned to tbc coat of arms of tbc State of Nebraska. On motion ol Mr. HIGBY, the rules were t-usptndco, and the Senate bill granting lands to aid in tho construction of a'railroad iri-m Stockton to Copperopolis, in the State c: California, was taken from the Speaker’s table ai d passed, with amendments, by a t«*te ol *T to cy.

Notwithstanding the prevalence in tbe ofthe storm the galleries were packed. On tbe door there was a sort of political ex change, the new members of the Fortieth Congress mingling with tohre they me soon to succeed, atd making acquaintances with their future colleagues. A number of enrolled bills were presented and signed, this being. In fact, the main pur pose lor which the House Is In session this evening. Sir. STEVENS rose to a personal explana tion, saving that it was not often he aid so, but owing to the great number of letters of mnniry which he was daily receiving, and which he hsd not time to answer, he felt it necessary to depart Irou tbc usual rule of his life on that point. It wonld be recollect >d, he said, that some time rifice there had been a publication us to certain conversation between •wo members fromObio—Messrs. A«hley and Biopham—and himself. In which the name I General Grant had been involved. So far us it retenedto anv connection be bad with it, the story was whollv false. There was not even a vestige of truth about it, oat of which to fabricate a He. He could not tell “hat took place between the two gentle men from üblo, but so far as he heard the conversation, tbe version given of it was wholly a fabrication. It might seem very late for hlm to make ifiis explanation, but the Si>cakcr wonld re collect that he bad deferred doing so at the special request of bis excellent colleague irom Fay ette, Mr. Dawsou. He also desired to ray that he had no hostility to any per son on that account. He had addressed a letter asking for his authority for the state ment, but tbc writer bad declined to answer, on tbc ground that' It eld not believe tl-at that was true. He did hot believe that any member of Congres* Itad given any such information. He did not know any member of Congress who would pcrcctiate such falsehood against him or anybody else. So lor as he knew, the mem \ ers ol this Congress had been tno-c harmonious, hsd shown lea* ncrlmony and less animosity than than he had ever known in any previ i.«f Congress. Doubtless In the ardor ot debate they had sometimes glvca and rc <-«'ivedwbut might be considered hard co- IketP, but be did not now remember one *4 theu , and there was not one member of tbc House, or anybody, against whom he had the bast animosity. He desired to say this publicly to the members on the other side who. however severely they had criticised his policy, had always treated him with the greatest courtesy. The Judiciary‘Committee reported on Im peachment. It recites the pieambie and res olutipDs under which the investigation was ordered. The Committee say; Soon after ; the adoption of the resolutions by the House, Hon. James M. Ashley commu nicated to the committee, in support of bis chaige against the President ol the United States, such facts as were In his possession, and the investigation was proceeded with, and has continued almost without a day’s interruption. A large number of witnesses have been examined, documents col lected, and everything done which could be done to reach a conclusion In the case; but the Investigation covers so broad a field, em braces so many novel, interesting and im portant questions, and Involves such a mul titude of facte, while many of the witnesses are distant from the Capital,owing to which the committee, In view of the magnitude of the Interests Involved in its action, has not been able to conclude Us labors, and It Is not, therefore, prepared to submit a definite and final report. If the investigation had even approached completion, the com mittee would nut led authorized to present the result to the House at this late period of the session unless the charges had been so entirely negatived as to admit of no discus sion, which, in the opinion of the committee is not the case. Ceilolmy no affirmative re port could be properly considered in the expiring hours of this Congress. The committee not having freely investigated all the charges against the President of the United Suites, U is deemed Inexpedient to submit any conclu sion beyond the statement that sufficient testimony has been brought to its notice to justily and demand a Amber prosecution of the investigation. The testimony which the committee has taken will pass into the cus tody of the Clerk of the Bouse, and can go Into the bands of such committee as may be charged with the duty, so that the labor expended upon it may not have been in vain. The. committee regrets Us inabil ity definitely to dispose of the important subject committed to its charge, and present this report for Its own jUEiitu-atlou, and for the additional purpose of notifyirg the succeeding Con gress ol the incompleteness of Us labors, und that they should be completed. The report Is signed by all the committee, except Mr. Rogers. In the minority re port, Mr. ROGERS says there is not one (•article of evidence before the committee to sustain any charges which the House charged the committee to Investigate,and that the catc lb wholly without a {(article of evi dence upon which an impeachment coaid be founded. He furthermore reports that most of the evidence taken is of a secondary char acter, and fucb as would not he admitted in a court ol Justice, and he can see no good in continuing the investigation. The report of the Judiciary Committee in regard to the remissness and want of vigor in the pursuit of John Surratt concludes as follows: ‘•'ihe testimony of the Secretary of State, Sccre* tn>T oi t\ ar, one others h rewuh submitted, ex ulait ire and umditg to justify the acts of the Oovennnentfn the mcmi-ies, does not. fa the ojitrion ot your committee, excase the ercat de lay in even attempting to an cat the person charg ed with complicity In the assassination of me late Fi csldcft, and while the committee do not charge Impiopcr motives upon the officers of the Gov v:nm<Dt. they aic constrained, from the irwlmon'-, to report that.

TETO MESSAGE Of the President on the Dill Regulating the Tenure of Certain OHlcck. To the Senate or tbe United States: 1 have carefully examined the hill to reealate the tenure ot certain civil officers. The material prrtton of tnc bill is contained in the flrri sec tion, and Is of tbe effect follow log. namely: That every person boldine any civil office to which he hse been appointed by, and with the advice and content of me Senate, and every person who tball hereafter be appointed to any snob office, shall become dnly qualified to aettnerein, and shall be elected to bold each office until a suc cessor shall have been appointed by the Presi dent with tbc advice and consent of the Senate, and thereby qualified, and that tbe Secretary of State, 01 the Tiessaiy, of War, of tbc Navy, and ol the Inletior, the Post Maner General and tho Attorney General t-hall hold their offices respect ively for and during the term of the President, by whom they may have been appointed, and fur one munib thereafter, subject to rvmoval by and wub the advice and consent of tbe Senate. These provisions are qualified by a reservation in tbe fourth section, that nothin™ coni-ttoed in tbe bill fball De construed to extend the terms of any oilier, the duration ol which is huiitea by liw in cSVcI tbe bill provides, that the President shall ni t remove from tin ir places any of the clrtl officers whose terns of service are not limited oy la» without the advice and consent of tbe Senate of the tniu-o States. Ibe bill in Ibis respect con -1 Aids, in my judgment, w ith tbc Confutation of the United States. Tbe question, as Congress t* well aware, is ny no means a ten- one. that toe power of removal j* constUnlloually w<ted in the President ol the United States Is a pre-.eqni rite which las been not more distinctly atcorcri by judicial anihorlly snd judicial Scommentarlct than it has been uniformly nractictd upon by 'die I cgislative ted Executive Departments of the Government. The question arose m ihe Dense of Representatives so early as the iCth of jane, itgy, on tbe bill for establishing an Executive Department, denominated the De luxttnem of Forelea Allaire. The first danse of the bill, alter recapitulating the fnncllona of iLe officer and dt fltdnma tu abilities, had these woide: “To be rclievable from office by the licridrntof the United State-*." It was moved to strike ontvlcjc «ords, and the motion was sns- W?..” n ?. s S* , .*J ,I,l, > ,navl « or - 1' m riel* c that the Pi csldent could not consUtniionsliv c>erase the power of removal exclusive ot the t-enate; that the irderolut so Interpreted the LonsUmtion when U arened for Us adoption bv •be several Mates; that the Constitution hac no «here givtn the President the power of removal ulcer expresHv or by strong implication, be: on tbe contrary Lad distinctly provided for the re moval fnm office by impeachment. The only construction which denied the power ol removal hr tbe arguments growing f.-om tbe danger of the loose of the power from toe supposed tendency of an ex -1 osnro of public officers to ouaidons removal, to impair the tffidtncy ol tie civil service: Lout »ht altered injustice and haid-nip of displacing metmber is dependent upon their official nation** i'il-out sufficient consioeratn-n; from the sap? posed wart cf rcspocslmliiy on the part ofibe Picsidcnt, and from an imagined defect ot the gantaiitccs against which a vidons Pre-lacct tuiebt incline to abase the power.

Gave we. tent is. Congress, a right to extend this exception ! 1 believe not. If the Constitution has invested all Executive power In the President I return to assert that ■he LecL-latme has no right to dlmlnlah or modlfj Ms executive authority. The question now re solves itself into Ihl?; l* the power of displacing an executive power? Whatever is In tne Execu tive* I: Is the power of appointing, overseeing, and cortoM-ig those who execute the laws. If the Constitution bad not qualified the power of the President in appointing to office, by asso ciating the J-enare with him in that business, would it not be clear that he conld have the right by virtue of bis executive power to make such appointment? Eboold we he authorised In de fence of that danse in the Constitution—'‘the ex ecutive power shall be vested in the President’— to nclte the Senate with the President mtbo appointments to office* 1 conceive not, if it ts admitted that we should not bo aulhorizal, whether we have a rlcnt to associate theta In re moving persons from office, the oae power being us much of an executive nature as the other, and the first one ts authorized bv being accepted out oftbeg<neral rale t-stabUsned by tbeConstitu tion In these words: *Thc executive power ?h»ll be vest'd In the President.’ The question thus ably and exhaustively argued was decided bythe House of Representatives by a vole of 51 to 30 In favor of the principle that the i -lecutirc powc'of removal Is vested by the Con stitution lu the Executive,and in tbo *ecstc by the •,arting vote ol the Vice President. That question ta* often been raised lu snosequeot limes of high • zcltcmcnt, and the practice of the Govern ment has nevertheless conformed in all . asee to the decision thus early made. Ihe question was reviewed during !■ c Administration of President Jackson, who made, as is well recollected, a very large number i t removals, which were unde an occasion of ac tive and vigorous scrutiny acd remonstrance. Ibe subject was long acd earnestly debated in the r-enate, aud Jbe early construction of the Consti tution was nevettaeless frtely accepted as binding od conclusive upon Congress. Tbe question came again before ihe Supreme Court of the United Males in January, ISiS, es parte Herren. It was declared by the Court, on that occasion, that tbe power of removal from office was a object much disputed, and npon which a great diversity of opinion was entertained m the cany hl-toi' of the Government. This related, how evci.lo the poaer of Ibe President to remove ol fievts appointed wi'htbe concurrence of the bea nie, and ibe meat question was whether the re moval was to b- by tbs President alone, or with iYjc concurrence ol the Senate, both constituting the appointing power. No one denied the power of the President and Senate Jointly to remove, where the term of the office was not fixed by the i*on Illation, which was a fall recognition of tbe principle tßat the power ol removal was Incident to the power of appointment, bnt was very early adopted as a practical con junction of the Constitution, that this power was vested In the President alone, and such would appear to have been the legislative construction ot the Constitution, for in the organization of the three great Department)- of Elite, War, and Treasury, m tbe year 17:1), provision was made for tbe appolrlracnt of a subordinate officer by the head of tbe Department who should fiavo charge ol the record doo’.s am! papers apper taining to tbe office, when tbe head of the De partment should be removed from office by the President of tbe United Stales. When the Navy Department was established in 1795. . ptovislon was made for the charge and custody of tbe books, records and documents ol the Department In case of vacancy in the office of Secretary, by removal or otherwise, it is not here said t-y removal of the President, as it la done with respect to the beuds of the other De partments, vet there can be no douQt that he colds bn* office with the same tenure is the other Secretaries, and la removable by the President, n.v < bang, ol phraseology arose probably from it- havingbecome the settled and well understood construction ot the Constitution. The power of removal was vested In the President alone m.sncn cases, although the apoolnt tucnl of tbe officers Is by the IVcsldtnt and Senate—J3lb Peters, page 139. Our loorl distinguished and accepted authority upon the Constitution concur lu the construction tins early given by Congress and thus sanctioned by the fcupremc Court. Altei a mil analysis of tbe Congressional de bate to which 1 have referred, Mr. Justice Slory comes to this conclusion, after a most animated ditcussiou: 100 vote finally taken In the Boose • f Representatives was affirmative of the power of removal In tbe President, witaoat any co-operation of the Senate, by tbe vote of thirty four member? against twenty, in tbe Senate the clause in the nlll affirming tnc power was carried by the casting vote ot the President. That tue Heal decision of the question so made was greatly Isfincnccd by the exulted character of the Presi dent then in office, was asserted at Ihe time and has always been believed; yet tbe doctrine was opposed, as well as supported, by tbe filgees: iegal talent and patriotism of tbe country. Tbe public have acquiesced in this decision, and it constitute?, peibaos, tbe most extraordinary case in tbe bihtoiy ol the Government, ofa power con f« »rrd by liupiic-tioaon the Executive by a bare majority ot congees?, which has not been ques tioned. Nor is this general acquiescence and tdlvucc without a satisfactory explanation. Chan cellor Kent's remarks ou the subject arc an follows: On the first organiza tion of tbe Goveramtut it was made* a question whether the power of removal in case ot officers appointed to bold at pleasure, reside? nowhere but in the bony which appoint ed, and of course the consent of satiate was not required to remove. Thiswa? the con stinctiun given to the Constitution while It was pending lor ratification before the State Conven tions, by authority of the Government; but the construction which was given to the Constitution l»y Congress after great consideration and discus sion was differ.‘Dt. Ihe words establishing the the Treasury Department arc: 41 And whenever the same shall be removed from office by the IVctituSl (Be llmicU S ates, or In any other ctt&e of vacancy m office, tu« assistant shall act.' 1 This amounted toaleuislaUre construction of the Constitution, and it has ever since been acquiesced in aud acted noon as a decnlOQ Of au thority. It applies equaby to every other officer of the Government appointed by the Pre-ldcnt whose term of duration I? not specially declared. It Is supported by the weighty reason that the sub ordinate offices in the Executive Department ought to be helu at the pleasure ol the head ofthc di partmeut, because be is invested generally with ibe executive authority, sod the participation In that authority by tbe Senate was an exception to a general principle and ought to be taken strictly. Fbc President !•* the great responsible officer lor ibe execution of the law, and tbe power of re moval was incidental to that dutv. and might otren be requisite to fulfil it. Thus has tbe imoortant question presented by ibis trill been settled. Thu late Daniel Webster, u bl:c dissenting tiom It. admitted that it was set tled by construction, settled by the practice of Ibe Govuinmcn*. and settled by etatnie, Tbe events of the last war fu-nlfhed a practical confirmation oi the wisdom of the Constitution, as It has hleh eito been maintained in many of its pans, in cluding that wptch is now the subject of consid eration. When the war broke out reoel enemies, traitors, abettors and sympathizers were found in vvety Department of the Government, as well in the cml service as in the land aud naval military service. They were found In Congress and among the Keepers uf the Capitol, In theToretgn mission, in each and a I of the Executive Departments, In the Judicial service. In the post office, and among rhu nsvi't* conduction Indian aililrs. Upon .■roLtK'.'u suspicion luey were promptly uls .laced by my predecessor, so far as tnerbeld •l.v-r cfljc-s nm*or Executive authority, and ’heir ‘nties wereectru-ied to new aud loyal succes sors. No complaints seal ust that power, or doubt* of Us wUaom, were cnvertalucd id any qunrter. 1 elccerely trust and believe that no such civil «nr l» likely to occur again. 1 can not donbi, however, that in whatever form, and on whatever occasion eeoltlon can raise an cllort to binder t r dcf«a r the legislative action ol the Government, whether by preventing the oollt ctlon of tbe revenne or disturbing the public peace, or separating the States, or Dotrayicg the country to a toreisri eiemj. the power of removal fiom oflic© by the Executive, as it baa heretofore existed and becu practiced, will be found indis pensable under these circumstances as a deposi tory ot tbe Exccntive authority of tbe cation. I do not feel at liberty to unite with Congress in reveremgli by giving my approval to the bill. At tbe early day woeu ibis question was settled. RTid’Dflced at tbe several periods when It has sub sequently been a glut d. the success of the •.onsUtutlon of the United States as a new and precious system of a tree representative Govern ment was held doubtful in other countries, and «as even a snbjtct of patriotic apprehension among the American people tbcmsoivt-s.

Donng eighty y tars toe people of tbe United States bavc enjoyed a measure of secuiity. peace, pioaperity ana hap pinets never experienced by any nation. It can uot be doubled Uia' the triumphant success of tbe Constitution is doc to tbe wonderful wisdom w?ib »blch th. Jfiinctions of the Government were diMribottd bcweeit tbo three principal depart
