Special De?pa*ch to the Chicago Tribune.] Washington, March 5. THE ALEXANDRIA ELECTION, The municipal election held in Alexandria 10-day was very important, because it Is the first in the South since the passage of the Reconstruction Bill. It is claimed by the Republicans of that city that under the pro visions of this act the negroes have a right to vole. This view was sustained by the Governor in a letter written to a prominent resident of the city. The Democracy claim that the negroes cannot vote till the Slate has been taken possession of by the Govern ment, or till a Convention has been called to reconstruct the State. The Mayor and two or three citizens came up here yester day to get advice from the Administration- The President declined to give an opinion -on the question as to the right of the negroes to suffrage, and referred them to Ihc Attorney General, who also declined to give an official opinion till he had given the matter his full consideration, but informally Eald he he did not think they were entitled yet to vote. The Republicans held several meetings yesterday evening, and decided to present the votes of the negroes this morn ing, and carry the case up if they were re fused. The Democrats made mauy threats of violence, and General Canby was accord ingly requested by the Governor to take military cognizance of the situation, and see that the peace was preserved. This he did, and about lire hundred troops, infantry and cavalry, were sta tioned about the city all day. The polls were opened at nine o’clock, and negro votes were presented at every precinct, hut were refused by the Commissioners of Election. The Republicans then demanded the fact of such votes having been offered and rejected, and the reason for their rejec tion should be entered on the records, but this was also refused. Voting places for colored men were then opened by their friends, and in depositing their ballots they were required to register their names and prove their eligibility to suffrage. The day passed off without serious disturb ance, though there were several street fights in the course of the morning. The colored men behaved with great propriety and probably polled about twelve hundred bal lots. The election will undoubtedly be car i xied into court as a test case under the Re construction BIIL It Is understood that the I questions in issue were laid before the Cabi j net session to-day, but nothing is known of the action or advice of that body. IN THE HOUSE. The session of the House to-*day was about two hours long. The candidates selected i last night for Postmaster, Doorkeeper, and Sergeanl-at-Arms, were chosen by resolu tions, and Rev. Dr. Boynton was re-elected ■ Chaplain by 87 votes against C 2 for all other ■candidates. It is proper to say that the election of General Lipplncottas Doorkeeper as a tribute not only to his merits as a man pnd officer, but to the wise and energetic . inner in which his claims were presented 7 J urged by Hon. Shelby M. Cnllom. DBA'WI3fC FOB SCATS. * The greater part of the session was taken lip in drawing for scats. The names of all the members were written on slips of paper ind drawn from the ballot-box by one of the ?agcs blindfolded, the members meant! me Handing in an area ontside tbe semicircle of cesks. When a member’s name 'was drawn aid announced, he advanced, selected his scut and occupied the same. The scat Df E. B. Washbhme was - reserved for him. Mr. Stevens was allowed to retain his old scat in the centre of the Republican lide, and ex-Govcrnor Thomas, of Maryland, in consideration of age and character, was illowed to choose before the drawing began. Che fret name drawn was that of Mr. Bea nan, of Michigan ; then Mr. Ferry, from the ©me State; Spalding, Kelley, Butler, Sbellabarger, &c. Hr. Hooper took tbe front seal, directly in front of tbe Speaker. 3lr. Kelley took Mr. Morrill’s old seat; Mr. Spalding, that formerly occupied by Mr. Ashley, who went to tbe rear and took Mr. loutwcll’s, who whs obliged to go around near the west door* Ben. Butler found a place next behind Mr. Stevens, alongside of Ivclley, and Wilson isfat Butler’s right, and Garfield, coming late out of the box, went to tbe rear with Ashley; General Schenck got Ils old seat; 31r. Eliot sits at Mr. Wash- Lurnc’s right, and has C. C.Wasbburne at his right; Mr. N. B. Judd sits alongside of Quincy Harding, in front of the Speaker, and half way to the door. Mr. Bingham was among tbe .ast called, and found a scat on tbe Deuiocaiic side, with Oakes -A-ines. John Covodc is in front,.at the Speaker’s left; Sbellabargcr is three seats to Mr. Stevens’ left, and Allison Is three seats to the rear. Fernando Wood was the last name drawn, but begot a central seat on the Dem ocratic side, > with Brooks across the able to bis right, aud two scats in the rear and Morrissey away to the left and TA rear. The proceed tpvapled About an boor, and ku - much .amuse ment. > c> THE QUESTION && *gj vNSCKNT. The principal sub}, ' conversation among Congressmen is cP tlon of ad journment. The genera, ,-ailon seems to be that an early day "will be agreed'upon. There appears to be three parties, one head ed by Butler and others, who favor Impeach ment, are urging the continuance of the ses sion and immediate action on that matter ; the second party wish to empower the Judiciary Committee to continue the im peachment inquiry during a recess to extend to October; the third class wish to remain in session for a few weeks, till it can bo ascertained whether the President will execute the Re construction Bill. An attempt is being made, by parties bent on immediate im peachment, lo create a Select Committee to consider the matter, but the opinion is gen eral that this will tail, because of the appar ent discourtesy to the Judiciary Committee. The question will come up for discussion in caucus to-morrow night. SEIZURE OP SMUGGLED GOODS. The Treasury Department to-day received information of the seizure of a large lot of coods at Bellas!, Maine, that were smuggled into this country from Canada. These goods are valued at upwards of thirty thousand dollars. Prominent merchants in Canada are said to be implicated. BUSINESS OF TEE CHICAGO POST OFFICE. About ten and a half million letters passed through the Chicago Post Office last year, and the receipts of the office for postage amounted to over four hundred and twenty two thousand dollars. HOUSE COMMITTEES. The Speaker announced this morning that he would appoint only three committees at present, unless otherwise ordered by the House, viz: On elections, mileage and rules. Mr. Dawes will be chairman of that of elec tions, as heretofore, and Shcllabarger, Up-, son and Marshall will be among his associ ates. E. B.Washburae will, remain at the bead of that on rales. SUIT TO RECOVER CONFISCATED PROPHETS’. Washington, March s.—Henry B. Tavlor, formerly Major In the Marine Corps, who daring the war served in the Confederate army, has commenced a suit against John D. Defrccs for tbe possession ol half a lot in this city. Tbe property was libelled by the court daring the war, and under the Confis cation Act toe life interest of the plaintiff was sold to the defendant. This is the first suit of the kind instituted here. REPUBLICAN CAUCUS. The Republicans hold another caucus to morrow night to take into consideration the business which should be transacted during the present session of Congress. It is be lieved that the question of impeachment and of a recess will be discussed. NOMINATIONS LOOKED FOR. Many new nominations will be made by the President to the Senate to fill the vacan cies caused by rejections. Tho Postmaster General states that not less than $2,OlK).000 are now in the hands of Clerks of Post Offices destitute of Postmasters. •ALEXANDRIA MUNICIPAL ELECTION. According to information from Alexandria the Ropuhlicans held a mass meeting, which was largely attended by colored men, and after addresses by the Republican candidate lor the Mayoralty, Geo. T. Tucker, and oth ers, they were instructed to offer their votes to the Commissioners of Election, hut if re fused, committees would take them this morning. This course was pur ged by the colored men, and the Commissioners ruled that they could not receive their votes. In conse quence, places were opened for the reception of their votes. Mayor Latham, with some citizens, waited on the President of the United States to inquire as to the right of the colored men to vote, and was inferred to the Attorney General. The to give his opmion in so short a time, but said he was inclined jo believe they would not be thus entitled until the Government had formally taken possession of the Stale. General Canby, in response to a request from Governor Plerpont, made the neces sary arrangements for a sufficient military force to be on the ground to preserve order, if necessary. Two companies of the Twelfrh Infantry, under command of Colonel Stan hope. arrived in the propeller Backer, from Washington, last night, and about daylight this morning three' companies of the Filth Cavalry arrived, the whole being under command of General Emery, who has quar ters at the office of the Freedmeu’s Commis sion. A telegram from Alexandria, received to night, says the election passed off without disorder, Latham was re-elected Mayor by sixty-three majority.

It is reported that more than one ihou&and negro votes were recorded. HOUSE FINANCIAL COMMITTEE. Washington, March s.—lt is understood that there will be no change in the members of the House Financial Committees, but that the Speaker will leave two vacancies to he hereafter filled in each. IMPEACHSIENT. The New York Post'* Washington special rtates that the extremists of the House will try to-morrow to raise a special committee on the impeachment of the President, with Sutler as Chairman, instead of Wilson, of fowa. The intention is to constitute the cjmmittcc so as to insure extreme meas ures, but its success is improbable. NAVAL. Washington, March s.— Advices from East India squadron report the Hartford at Hong Kong on the 81st December, having completed her repairs. The Wyoming left Nagaski December 13 for Yokohoma with our Minister on board. The Wachnsclt had been actively scouring the coast for pirates, vith headquarters at Hong Hong, and has rendered efficient service to the Consuls in obtaining redress for wrongs to our country men. Her commander reports no piracies •'ceurring, hut this is always the ease after the northeast monsoon set in. The leader of the pirates who took the Libra has been executed. The Board of Underwriters now insist that all vessels of certain size shall he armed, which will doubtless have a good effect. The Ashuelot was at Manilla, soon to sail for China. The storeship Supply was daily expected at Hong Kong. RELIEF FUND EXHAUSj^D, A circular from the Frcedmeu’s Bureau announces that the Congressional approgri ationol 000 for relief of the destitute citizens of tne District of Columbia has been expended, and no further aid from that source can he expected.

Bomford, As sistant Commissioner of the Freedman’s Bu reau for North Carolina, for January, is re ceived at headquarters. It shows that dur ing the mouth the officers and agents of the Bureau in many parts of the State have been busily engaged to the full ex- Unt of the powers ' delegated them for alleviating the destitute. Suffering from want of clothing and food is still prevalent, but it is hoped that spring will to a great extent lessen the number of dependents. The work of breaking up the settlements of the freed people under charge of the Bu reau progresses favorably, and in a very short time the Government -will be relieved of & very onerous burden. No arrests have been made by the Bureau and no outrages com mitted. CONGRESSIONAL PROCEEDINGS. Washington, March 5. SENATE. Mr. SUMNER pave notice of a bill to guarantee a republican form of government to the lately rebellious States; also, a bill to provide the form of oath to sustain that republican government.

Tabled for the present, until considered by tbe committee. Mr. SUMNER introduced the joint resolu tion In relation to the Paris Exposition, which passed both Houses during the closing moments of the last session, but did not reach the President in time to receive his signature. Mr. TRUMBULL objected to the consid eration of the measure without reference to a committee. Mr. STEWART int reduced a hill to reg ulate certain proceedings in criminal cases, similar in its provisions to a bill of the same title introduced at the last sessson. Tabled and ordered printed. Mr. SHERMAN introduced a hill to extend the time for the taking effect of the act re lating to wools and woollens to ten days from its passage. This bill passed both Houses yesterday, but not in time to get the signature ofthe President, Mr. STEWART Introduced a hill concern ing Injunctions and proceedings in civil cases.' Ordered to be laid on the table until the committees are formed. Mr. TRUMBULL, from the committee appointed to wait on the President, reported that he had performed that duty, and had been informed bj the President that he had no communication to make at present. Mr. STEWART introduced a bill to reor ganize tbe Judiciary of.Uuited States. Or dered to lie on tbe table until the formation of committees. It is a bill of tbe same title a c that ofthe session just closed, with verbal alterations. Adjourned. HOUSE. On motion of Mr. PRICE, the usual resolu tion relative to drawing of seats was adopted, those of Mr. WASHBURNE of Illinois, aud STEVENS, being reserved to them; but was tcmporily postponed. Mr. DAWES reported from the committee to wait on the President that he had no com* YOL. XX. municatlon to make at present. The rules were suspended, and the follow ing officers were declared elected and took the oath of office: N. G. Ordway. Sergeant-at-Arms ; Charles E. Lippincott, Doorkeeper; and William S. King, Postmaster of the House. Mr. FARNSWORTH offered a resolution directing the Clerk of the House to place on the roll the names of the territorial dele gates, whose credentials showed prima facie that they were elected. A discussion took place, from which it ap peared that in regard to Colorado it would be difficult for the Clerk to say which of the two persons claiming scats held a prima facie right to it, one having the certiflcate of the Government with the Territorial seal at tached to it, the other having the certiflcate of the acting Governor, majority of the Board of Canvassers attached, and also the seal. Finally the resolution was laid on the table. Then, on motion of Mr. WILSON, of lowa, the papers ol the two gentlemen claiming the scat from Colorado, were referred to the Committee on Elections, and the Clerk was directed to place on the roll tbe names of the delegates from the other Territories. The delegates from Idaho, Holbrook; from Arizona, Rushford; and.from Dakota, Burleigh, stepped to tbe Speaker's chair and took toe oath prescribed by law. The SPEAKER presented papers in tbe contested case of Burch and van Horn, of New York; Stewart, of Maryland; and a despatch from Salt Lake City, from Wm. Mc- Groter, giving notice that he would ‘contest the seat of Mr. Hooper, delegate from Utah, whose credentials were not received. Re ferred to the Committee on Elections. Mr. NICHOLSON called attention to the the fact that he had signed the protest of fered yesterday by Mr. Brooks, but that his name was omitted in the published copy. The House then proceeded to draw. The first name called was Beaman, and he se lected a seat Immediately in front of Mr. Stevens, and it was noticeable that all the Republican members who had an early choice of seats chose them in the same local ity. The change of base by Spalding, who. last session, sat on the Democratic side, and who now moved over to the Republican side, two scats in front ol Mr. Stevens, created amusement and laughter. The drawing oc cupied about an hour, which, bciug Con cluded, Mr. BALDWIN moved that the House pro ceed to the election of Chaplain. Agreed to. Nominations were made as follows: By Mr. Baldwin—Rev. Dr. Boynton, Chaplain of the last House. By Mr. Pruyn—Rev. Dr. Hall. Rector'ot fhe Church of the Epiphany, Washington. By Mr. Randall—Rev. John Chambers, of Philadelphia. By Mr. Noell— Rev. J. C.

After all the voles had been recorded, Mr. ELDRIDGE said he withdrew the name of his candidate, as be did not seem to he ap predated, no person having voted for him. The result of the vote was: Whole number 143 Kcc« esary to a choice 75 Mr Boynton received 87 Wr.. Ball do 10 Sir. Chambers do C Sir. Berryman do 8 Sir. Cartwright do 5 Sir.

Mr. WOODRUFF introduced concurrent reflations for the appointment of a com mittee of three Senators and three members, to revise and equalize the pay of employes ofbeth houses. Adopted. Mr. PRICE asked leave to introduce a hill to amend the national currency act. Mr. HOOPER obiccted. Mr. PPJCE moved a suspension of the rules. Mr. FARNSWORTH moved to adjourn. Pending the motion, the Chair stated that if the House were in session next Thursday, he would announce the committees on Rules, Mileage and Elections—committees that were necessary whether the House were iu session in three days or three weeks. He would not, however, for obvious reasons, appoint any other committees at present, unless the House should other wise order. He would also, if lue House gave its consent, appoint on the Committee on Rules, Mr. Washburne of Illinois, al though he was not duly qualified as a member on account of his absence in Europe, but to-day had been qualified as a member in having a seat reserved for him. Mr. ELDRIDGE inquired whether it was expected this House was to legislate for any length of time. The SPEAKER could not give any infor mation on that point. Adjourned. STATE LEGISLATURES. WISCONSIN.

Despatches had been forwarded to the Consul General of England in Havana, asking the immediate support of a man-of-war ship from that station, but as there was not a royal vessel within cosy communication, it is said that the Consul General of the Uni ted States In Cuba was about to send au American gunboat to the Balize to aid the English. . This Anglo-Indian affair assumes a serious aspect in a territorial point of view, as a boundary dispute between an English planter and the Indians hinges it to and mixes it up with the Mexican question.” The New York Times ’ Panama correspon dent gives a report that Senor Antonio Gon zales Carasco. President of the State of Bo livia, was killed by his own body-guard while travelling in the interior, and that la consequence a revolution had occurred in Carlhugeula. RECONSTRUCTION.

MERIOAN WALTHAM WATCHES, I.—We claim, and are prepared to prove, that the American Watches manufactured at Waltham, Masta chuictts, are not only equal, bat are for superior to the common watches of England, Switzerland and France. IT.—While wc admit that It would be difficult to ex cel the masterpieces ol the eminent .European manu facturers, and while we do not claim to have made any Ccclsive Improvements over them, we do assert and challenge a successful denial, that our superior class of watches are fully equal, in every respect, to the most expensive specimens of foreign chronometrical art. 111. Wa claim flat our watches are cheaper, more accurate, less complex, more durable, better adapted for American use, and more easily kept In order and repaired ttum any other watches In tbs market. IV. The reasons why our watches possess these ad vantages over their European rivals are chiefly: Ist. Because the prirclplo of the division of labor Is carried out in our workshops to Its extremes! limits, not in human Industry only, hut in machinery as well. Every watch passes through hundreds ol bands and hundreds ol machines. - 2d. Because we promptly adopt every new Inven tion to perfect our machinery, and every proffered improvement In the structure of watches. So. Because In eacb of the very numerous, minute, and often microscopic parts of which a watch la made op, we attain, by mechanical power, nearly absolute mathematical prccl-lon and uniformity, which It is ut terly impossible to achieve by manual labor. Wheels, pinions, escapements, balances, springs, and screws— exact counterparts in weight, circumference and di mensions—arc turned out by millions by the unerring, because unswerving, Ironhands of machinery. Hence, every watch of any one style Is a true copy of Its model. V.—These results enable us to defy foreign rivalry, because no similar uniformity and precision is attaina ble by band, and because In Waltham alone Is machin ery exclusively employed in the manufacture of this 1. triente and delicate mechanism. VI. Now, as win be seen at once, tMi similarity la structure reduces the cost of production; It secures uniformity in rcsnlts; It perpetuates and Infallibly oif lilies any excellence that may be once achieved; and mates It easy to repair any Injury sustained, or replace any part that may be Icet or destroyed. VII. In addition to tbeso mechanical advantages, our -watches arc simple In structure, and, therefore, stronger and less liable to be Injured than the majority of foreign watches. They are composed ot tromlSto ■JOO pieces. In an old English watch there are more than TDD parts. VllL— Wg begin our experiment In 1533; In the (ice of a formidable prejudice against American waicbe*. Our system was new aid untiled. We have steadily Increased our facilities until now we employ over 700 artisans ana sell 10,000 watches a year. Nearly a quar ter of a million of our watches are In use to-day In every state of the Union, as well os in the Mexican and British Provinces and Colonics. Their universal pop ularlty Is the beet proof of their merit that wo can pro duce. Ther hare won their way In spite of every opposition and of Immemorial prejudices. Hundreds cl dealers all over the country have expressed their preference for our products after a loos and practical experience with foreign watches. Any of me graces of Waltham Watches may be pur chased of watch dealers generally throughout the country. iiuoDina fit APPLETON, 19s llrona— BT.
