The Canadians Preparing for Another Fenian Raid. FIIOSI "WASHING TON. fSpccial Despatch to tbe Chicago Tribane.l WAsmsoioir, March G. CONGRESS. Each house of Congress was in scss'on but Lull an Lour to day. The bill for tbe ad mission of Colorado was introduced in ibe Senate, and an effort was unsuccessfully made in the Uouse to get a reference of the Tariff Bill to a new committee. It was evi dent, fiom the temper of both bodies, that there is not yet much disposition to take up general legislation. It Is probable, how ever, that the session wilt lost twelve or fourteen davsfmore, at least, as the Senile must remain to act on a large number of nominations, and the President has said that Lc will not call an extra session of that body. THE IMPEACHMENT QUESTION. The Republican caucus this evening was largely attended, about one hundred and twenty members being present. Mr. Banks presided, and Mr. Ferry, ol Michigan, was Secretary. The session was earnest and lively, but in the main harmonious. Mr. Covcde offered a resolution creating a committee of thirteen, to be appointed •by the Speaker, of which tbe present Judiciary Committee should form a part, to jirosccute the impeachment investigatioe. The resolution passed, instructing the Judi ciary Committee, when appointed, to pro ■cced with the investigation of the charges against the President, and to sit during the recess of Congress. On motion of Mr. Stevens, it was agreed, by eighty to thirty-seven, that when Con gress takes a recess it will be to meet on the eighth day ol M»y. for the purpose of hear ing the report ol the Judiciary Committee acting thereon, a-d also to perform such legislation as may then be uece«sary. The resolutions were then passed—so to ol—to take a recess on Monday next till the Bth of May. The scheme covered by the Covodc resolu tifea was broached in a caucus of about twenty Republicans this morning, Butler being tbe head in in in the cruller. It tailed in this small body, how ever, and the result to-night is considered a most signal defeat for Butler. THE PAY OF ARMV OFFICERS. The following is an abstract of the new law for a l-.rupurary increase cf pay o: army officers, etc.: 5-ecJioti one provides that, for two rears from Juiv Ist, IPC9. all officers below Major General shall be psid an a-ldiiion of thirty-three and one thud per cent to the present, pay nroner, and the pay and emolument of all field and other mounted cGiccrr shall hereafter be tbe same ns the present pay of cavalry oUlcre o! like grades. Section two continues tae present increased pay of private solders for three Tears from Angus! Su, i-w. Section three allows the commutation of rations at cost prices on the settlement of the accounts of all enlistee men of the army, navy nod marine corps, who died while held as prj-oners of war in the rebel State*, orwlrr. having been so held, have died or may die subsequent to release, to be paid on order to the widow, c'-ildrca, parents, brothers nnd sisters. Section fonr repeals the law under which the Assistant Secretary of War wai unpointed. Sccilon five makes pe.'t-ona who served three years as vo'mjtei-r ecrucons or assistant sur geons eligible tor promotion to the grade of Cap tains. Section sis strike* the word white out of all United State* Militia law?. Section seven giver* Post t-hipltin* <lie rank or Captain, and provides t&at. they shall be hereaPcr appointed by trie i*res!dcni, with tbe advice and consent of the Senate, a*id pots a I army Chap lains on the same toouzig a* other army officers, with rcsucc; to tenure of office, retirement, al lowance for reulce and pensions. Section eight provide* that in ary case where persons cni.-li-o to receive payment of bounty un der tbe provi-iea* o; say law ehall make applica tion theicior, or ulu-tv such an application shad be mane by ill•.* proper representatives of sach pen-ons, being deceased, and the discharge of such person has linen loet. it shall be competent for accounting officers to lien of the actual pTOduciicil of such discharge, proof of the actual lor? of iLe fame; and second, any proof of its if see end cnMrnts, icgethcr with proof of tbe idvnaty of »Lc claimant or person dccea-cd. Section nine give- general officers and officers oniherou. rd Lt additional rations for every five years service. nnrußLicAX caucus. Republican Senators -will hold a final em eus to-morrow morning, to arrange the standing committees of the Senate. CE-lIRMAKSHms OF COMMITTEES. Sir. Fessenden positively declines serving again as Chaiiniau of the Finance Commit tee, or even asChaiimanof the new Commit tee on Appropriations. He finds that the arduous labors of the last sis years have ma terially Injured his health, and thinks, more over, that his long service at the head of the most impoitaut committee ol Congress en titles him now to a somewhat easier posi tion. It is probable he will take the chair manship of the Committee on Public Build ings and Grounds, end tbe second place -on some other committee-. Mr. Sherman will be advanced to the chairmanship of the Finance Committee, and Governor Merrill, of Maine, will be at the head of the Commit tees on Appropriation. Mr. Snmnerremains at the bead ol Foreign Relation*; Mr. Wil son, the Military; Trumbull, the Judiciary; Grimes, the Isaval Affair*; Tates, or Harlan, on Territories. Mr. Grimes was pressed to lake the head of tbe Committee on Appro priations, but rclused. AITROFEIATIONS FOR WESTERN’ BIVER AND HARBOR IMPROVEMENTS. The law making appropriations for the im provement of rivers and harbors has the fal lowing among other items: Improvement of the Ohio River, one hundred thousand dol lars ; improvement of the month o' the Mis sissippi River, two hundred thousand dol lars ; bui-ding and operating two dredges and snag boats, to be u:Cd on the Mississippi River, belween Fort Snelling and Rock Island Rapids, ninety-six thousand dol lars ; improving iavsga‘lon at Rock Island Rapids, two hundred thousand dollars; improving the navigation at Dcs Moines Rapids, according to such plan as the Secretary of tVar shall” on the report of the Board of Engineers, ap prove, live hundred thousand dollars ;pro zided, however, that any canals that may be constructed around said Des Moines or lower rapids of the Mississippi River, shall be and forever remain free to the navigation and commerce of said river, and no tolls shall ever be collected thereon. APPROPRIATIONS FOB WESTERN LIGHT* HOUSES. The new law lor building light-houses makes the following appropriations: For Trowbridge Point, in Thunder Bay, Mich., ten thousand dollars; for Mendota, Lake Superior, Mich., fourteen thousand dollars; for Pigeon River, Lake Superior, Minn., fif teen thousand dollars. LAWS I'ROMULGATED. The State Department officially promul gates the Military Reconstruction Bill, and the Tenure of Office Bill, as having become laws by their passage over the vetoes. PAV AND PERQUISITES of REVENUE OFFICERS. An act passed just previous to the ad journment of the last Congress, and approv ed March 2d, makes great havoc In the fees of Collectors of Customs. The act provides that from the proceeds of flues, etc., in curred by violating the revenue laws, la case of forfeiture, of imported merchandise amounting to fire hundred dollars and upwards, there shall be de ducted an amount equivalent to tho duties In coin, which is to be credited to the accounts of the Collector as duties received, and the residue to ht distributed bj the Secretary of the Treasury, one half to the United States, one-fourth to the in former and the remaining one-fourth t-> he equally divided between the Collector, Na val Officer and Surveyor. THE PUBLIC DEBT. P°Wic debt Etatement”show3 the total ** e 52|®*0»58<.25D.19, The amount Jd the Treasury is as follows: £ oln * $107,371,031.12 Carrier 53,255^3337 IJILL TOE THE ADMISSION OP COLORADO. WASHINGTON, March o.—The bill intro duced in the Senate to-day by Air. Harlan for the admission of Colorado is substantially the Edmunds Amendment Bill to enforce the terms of the present. Territorial Equal Suffrage Law of Congress, and reserving the right to enforce it and the Civil Rights Law in the State. The changes in the Senate and House since the last Congress leave little doubt In. the Ininds of the friends of Colorado that the State will be admitted at an carlv day. They say the vote on last Friday cUd not show the real strength of the bill, as there would have been three more votes for, and one less against it, if such votes would have been necessary to carry the measure, making the real strength thirty-two against seventeen. COMMANDERS UNDER THE RECONSTRUCTION n.T A 0 of commandants to the five districts, nndcr the Reconstruction Bill, was considered in the Cabinet yestor t* 2 ?- A complete list was not decided upon, but it is understood General Schofield wUI have the first, including Virginia, and Han the filth, including Louisiana and n^? UInE>rCXTS 0P TlrE "WOOL TARIFF BILL. The wool tariff requires that the Secretary of the Treasury shall select stan dard samples of the wools named and de posit them In the various Custom Houses, it is found that the wool growers and manu facturers are not prepared to furnish these samples, and the Secretary will be obliged to send to Europe for them, and it will bo two or three months before they can be ob tained, and any wool passed the Custom Hocsos. The law is also so loosely drawn that the Department has not yet been able o determine whether it allects (roods In bend. INDIAN* SETTLEMENT IN* NEBRASKA, heiuins of the survey of the southern part of the Omaha Indian Reservation, situated on the Missouri River, in the extreme narl of Nebraska, have been received by the’Com missioner of the General Land Office, show the Ontsiia Reservation has been amced into tbe northern and southern por npas, under the treaty of March Cth. 1805 Inc former has been sold to the United *ial.e, and is lobe occupied by the Wione nagocs, utd the latter by the Omahas. to be msscfsed in severally assigning to each head cf a family one hundred and sixty acres, and to each male person, sxlecn years ot age and upwards, a tract not tx cccding forty acres. White persons are not allowed to reside on thejreservation except such us are in the employ of the United States, without written permission of *- ; e Superintendent of Indian Affairs or Spe cial Agent of the reservation. Theallotment ofiapd to the Omahas will be made for the exclusive use and benefit of themselves and heirs. Said tiacts shall not be alienated by lease or otherwise disposed of except to the united States, or to other members of the tribe. The Executive Mansion was thronged to-day with members, Senators, office-seek ers and politicians. GENERAL LIPPINCOTT who was recently elected Doorkeeper of the Horse of Representatives, will not make any changer of Importance among Ills snbordr rales until the close of the present session. Meanwhile, somr- of the employes arc striv ing to be retained, while hundreds of others are making applications for appointments. NOMINATIONS. An hour after the Senate adjourned, the Private Secretary of the President brought to the Capitol a large number of nominations, principally postmasters and army and navy officers, for the action of that body. It is calculated that three or four hundred vacan cies under the various branches of tbe Gov ernment are to be filled before the adjourn ment of the senate. INFORMAL CAUCUSES. Several private conferences of the Repnb licaumembers of tbe Douse were held to day, at ore of which Generals Butler and Logan were present, advocating, it is said, the appointment of a special committee to pursue the impeachment of the President. The Ohio delegation had a conference to day, but the subject of their deliberations is not known, further than It referred to what business should be transacted during tbe present session. The New York delegation at their confer ence recommended mat the Impeachment question he referred to a special committee u» be composed of seven members, and the late Judiciary Committee, and bo returned to the present House. The views of these several parties will be urged upon the cau cus to night, at which it will be deter mined whether the standing committees shall now be appointed, or whether this stall be dote only alter the elections in the Northern States shall have been held. The probability is that the appointment of com mittees will be postponed, excepting a specially instructed one on the question of impeachment. PROBABLE LENGTH OF THE SESSION. It is lire opinion of members that this session will not continue more than a week finger, aid that a recess until May will be ;akin; but as to this there cannot beany certainty ut-ril this caucus decides. DIPLOMATIC. 2ne'V 1 ork, March 15.— Tho Iferald pub *;shi6 a circular from Secretary Seward, cated Dc-.tmbor last, inviting Spain and the South American republics to unite in a Pe-.ce Conference at Washington, April ls f , ;;i d suggesting that the President be an rimmed to appoint some neutral power as umpire for thearrangemont of the differences r* spi-ciing international laws and courtesies, wLhoul, however, interfering with terms upon between the interested powers.

Meeting of the Dairymen of Winneba go and Adjoining Counties— Pro gramme of Business Adopted—lnter esting and Instructive Speeches by Messrs. W. G. King, C. tv. Hart feldtj and Others. [Special Despatch to the Chicago Tribune.] Rockford, 111., March 6. A Convention of the dairymen of Winne bago and adjoining counties assembled at the Court House in this city, this morning at 10 o’clock, in pursuance to a call made through tbe public press. The attendance was very fair, with an anticipated accession of num bers in the afternoon. Tbe Convention was called to order by Hon. Anson G. Miller, on whose nomination Hon. T. C. Bronson, of Winnebago, was cho sen President; Dr. A. Hammond, of Winne bag°i Vice President; E. H. Griggs and Charles Brayden, Secretaries. Sir. Bronson briefly returned thanks. A committee consisting of W.G. King R. J. Cross, C. A. Murtfeldt, Geo. H. Mari ner and Samuel Cunningham were appointed to propose a programme ol business for the action of the Convention. Adjourned until 2 o’clock. AFTERNOON SESSION. The committee appointed to report a nro crammeof order of business made the 'fol lowing report: Ist. Opening address ; 2d. The heat brand of cows ler the dairy, and the best manage ment of them ; 3d. The best manner of mak ing, curing and keeping butter ; 4th. What la required In quality, packages, &c., in order to secure the best market price for butter, and hen* to correct injurious errors. Thursday.— First, address; second, the best manner of making, curing and keeping cheese ; third, arc cheese factories in North ern Illinois likely to prove profitable invest ments?; fourth, best manner of cultivatin'*- tame grasses, and best grasses fora farm. The programme was adopted. Hr. Eldiidge, of W 1 scoDain, was made a * ice President ol the Convention ; also John James, of Ogle County, The attendance this’aflcmoon was largely increased, including a number of ladies. W. G. King. Esq.‘, of Rockford, who is uni versally recognized as the pioneer dairyman m Winnebago County, and in fact In North ern Illinois, then read a long practical and interesting address, which will be found on the inside of this paper. Mr. C. W. Murtfeldt, of Rockford, an ox perlenced agriculturist and orchardist. then read an essay upon dairy cattle, grasses and pasturage, which was listened to with atten tion. It contained many important and in structive facts and suggestions upon thesub jects named. He said ; “If wc examine the naps oftho Halted Slates, wc And the region North of the 40th parallel in dicated by climate and soil as that pan of the State best adapted to the products ot the dairy. Ihc best portions olthis section are such as arc favorable to Ike growth of cereals and grasses, being at the fame lime well watered. The southernmost portion of tucso legion arc heller adapted to the manufacture of cheese than of butter. Accordingly, Northern Illinois embraced that eccUcu favorable to dal ivjrg. Mr. Murtfeldt tben pave a true history of farm ing ;p this region. Do then piocecdcd to lav down certain rules for carrying on the dairy: Always treat your cows gently; lose not your bmper under any provocallon; let your milking ‘•c dote evenly ua to motion, takingone back and one forward teat. Be pure to have your hands dc«n «hm your pail is lull. Carry it to the mllk ipom immediately and strain It Into lb. pans. Milk and cream want air, and though sitonp breezes arc to be avoided, as it lords to make the cream hard and leathery The milk >oom and cellar should be perfectly clean and sweet, free from all vegelabl -s, pork meats or other odors to effect them. There Is nothing more efficient Iliac while-wash. The temperature ol the room should be between alxty and seventy; if it goes much higher the milk tours before ail the cream throws up, and If lower it takes longcrfor tbe cream to rise and injuriously aflectr the quality. When churned,the cream should oc at mly-two degrees temperature. The use of a thermometer is very necessary. Ho would not Lave butter produced in le‘9 than twenty minutes. The butter milk should be perfectly separated from the butler. Another Important part Is salting. Oneonnceof the best of the Liverpool blown salt to the pound of butter U nearest right. ir. Murtfeldt coincided In Mr. King's views on Crkins, &c. Mr. Murtfeldt ILcn gave his views on tho best cons for dairy purpose?, and gave his piefercnco for the Alderney s. Agood dairy cow should have a small, clean head, wavy, clear and tapering Lorca, mild, intelligent. open eyes, show ing tnt tiltlc ol the whites, small lore parts, ribs well spread, giving a roomy barrel, large hind t«rs®, '••n Jovaion«.d udder- wittaonk being fleshy, reaching far front under the hcriy, with the teats medium size, and wide apart, tblc* but soft hide, covered with a thick silky coat of hair. Her skin thould be yellow, and bor color anything bnt pure white or black. Sir. M. closed by giving Lis views on the feeding of cattle. John James, of Ogle, pave his own expe rience in making butter lor the past twenty five years: In early years our Illinois butter was held In low repute. He tried to convince bis neighbors that there was a dircrence between good butter and poor butter, but did not succeed until he met Mr. King, who had just addressed them, lie laid down certain rules tn milking cows. In the first place, never Irritate a cow or beat it; Uraakcs the milk feverish. Uniformity of milking was neces sary. In tbe summcrcowsshould be milked early in the morning and lalo in the evening. He milked his cows on Sunday, and insisted that r.o barm was done. He preferred to hare men to milk, because they were stronger. He Insisted upon tuilformily In churning, not 100 fast nr too slow. Butter would always come. At the same time, milk differs according to the condition of the cows. Butter that took a long while in com ing he would not mix with other batter, but sell it Tor create. In working batter, it should be done by Land, and continue it until all the butter milk is out. In laying down butter, always put a cloth upon the top. covered with salt. Never wash butter. He endorsed Mr. King's remarks In regard to the kind of salt to be used, that is the Liverpool Ashton salt. He used hap hazard cows, and did not believe in fancy high I-ricea cows: does nol'know what breed his cows arc He picks them out according to their good points. Hu thought Northern Illi nois well calculated for the dairy basl near’, and be thought U more profitable than almost any olher .agricultural pursuit, Mr. Murtfeldt offered the following reso lution ; Jtnolcfd, That it Is the sense of this Convention that uis belter lo use water id expelling butter milk from new made butter. Mr. King deemed washing butter unne cessary. lie never could distinguish that It Improved by washing, and this was the gen eral impression among dairymen In Duchess County. The sentiment in Orange Countv is divided. Mr. Murtfeldt felt convinced that hatter was improved hy washing, and related his experience to prove it. If you sell your but ter immediately, washing is not necessary; but if you kept it a considerable time he deemed it necessary. Mr. Brown, of Burritt, was opposed to the dash churn because it did not make so good butter. He was in favor of washing butter. His experience Ladled him to this opinion. He commended the Ashton salt. lie was in favor of packing the butter at the dairy. If packed at the groceries the reputation of the butter was destroyed. John Jones,of Cherry Valley,a large cheese dairyman, cave his voice In favor of washing butter. All of his experience was in favor of it. He spoke of tbe breed of cows. His ex perience was In favor of the Ayrshire. They possess a gentleness which no other stock manifests. They require less training to bring them into subjugation. Mr. Rlgg, of Seward, was against washing butler. His experience was that butter that had been washed did not keep so long as that which had not. All that wasuccessary was to get the butler milk out of the butter, and when you Lave done this it is all that’s necessary. Mr. Jones thought that In the summer, when JJlhe Ihntter is that cold water by hardening the butter aided, lu that way in expelling the buttermilk. Mr. Eldridgc, of Afton, Wisconsin, said in making butter you must Ime good cows, and a good wife. In the first place use noth ing but a tin pail to milk in, and use noth ing but a dash churn. lie would use coo! spring water In expelling butter milk, and not put U away until it is salted. He en dorsed what Mr. Eing said in re gard to salt and salting. He in sislcd that for keeping butter for a long of lime, it should be washed. It was necessary to have soft and pure water. Much of the water in the West was hard and unflt to use for washing the butter, and did it more harm than good. Mr. King offered a substitute for Mr. Mart feldt’s resolution as follows : Jteeolzed* That it is the sense of tills Convention lhat It is immaterial whether butter is worked in water or worked without water, provided the baiter milk Is ifaorouchly espriled. Tbe substitute was rejected. Mr. Jones then offered another substitute os follows: Jtrtolxzd, That It is essential to extract all the hatter milk from the butler,snd that washing it In pure cold water is the heat process for doing so. The substitute was adopted. FROM DETROIT. Escape of a Convict—Eight-Hour League Victory-A Veto Endorsed— Murder—A .smuggler Arrested—A Chicago Firm implicated. Detroit, March 6.—A convict named Charles Rice made his escape from the State Prison yesterday by scaling the east wall, and at last accounts had not been recap tured. The Eight Hour League carried the char ter election at lonia this week. The Republican Convention of Newaygo County passed resolutions warmly endorsing the late railroad veto of Governor Crapo. A man named Grunnell, residing m the town of Richland, was brutally murdered on the 3d instant, by persons unknown. His head was much bruised and cut, appearing as if beaten with steel knuckles. The body was brought to Carrolton, where his son-in law resides. It was supposed that the de ceased had money about his person, bat it subsequently appeared that he had none. He had been living alone for some time pro vioustothe murder. His body was found about a mile from his house, by the side of thcroad.

Suicide of a Prominent Steamboat* Hi an—A Clover Piece of Detective Strategy— I p word* of Tblrty-oeven XbotuandvDollan In Stolen money He turned to tbo government* [Special Despatch to the Chicago Tribune.] Sr. Louis, March U. Captain Ash Hopkins, a well-known steamboat-man, died at daylight this morn ing, from the effects of a pistol wonnd pur posely Inflicted by hia own hand. He has been sick for some time past, and suffered from a temporary derangement of mind. At twelve o’clock yesterday, while in his own room on Fourth street, opposite the Court House, In a supposed fit of temporary In sanity, he drew from his coat pocket a small pistol, and placing the muzzle to his right temple, pulled the trigger, and the leaden and lata) messenger entered his brain. He lingered in a state of unconsciousness until daylight this morning. The capture by the Treasury Department of the robber Lee, and the recovery of nearly the entire amount of bonds stolen from the Government, was a clever piece of detective strategy. Major Cousins, his captor, sus pected Lee from meeting him on the street, and tracking him. on steamboats ami else where, and Anally cornered him at the Plant ers’ Hotel In St. Louis. lie took a room aud watched him. Yesterday morning a cham bermaid was instructed to call the oc cupant of No. 50. After repeated calls he rose, dressed himself and eventually un locked the door, whereupon the Major walked in, no longer the mule shipper, but a United States olllcer. He at once accused Miller, or rather Lee, of being a counter feiter, with a view of getting a look at what money he might have. Lee denied the charge. He stated that ho was an auction eer from New York. The Major insisted on examining his effects, and at last succeeded in getting into his trunk Under some wearing apparel was discovered a big pile of bonds and greenbacks. Then the' detective told Lee he was a prisoner, the very man ho had been looking lor and he bad suspected him to be. The prisoner made no resistance, and at once acknowledged his gallt, seemingly scarce dissatisfied at the turn things had taken. A. TV. Lee is a man about 56 years of age, of distinguished and polished bearing. He is wbut one would term a well-bred gentle man. He stated that he first took small bums of money; and the amounts becoming larger, tbe suspicions of the Chief Clerk and others were aroused. At length, convinced that exposure imist ensue, on Saturday night, January 2(Uh, he took a large pack age of bonds, though until counted by an expert from the Sub-Treasury in this city yesterday he was not aware how much he had taken. He went to Pittsburgh where he succeeded in changing some -$5,000 to greenbacks. From there he went down to New Orleans, coming back to Memphis im mediately, and from Memphis to St. Louis, on the steamer Marble City. After remaining here a day or two at the time, he went to Peoria, 111. Returning again to this city, ho observed the Marble City lying at the wharf, and meeting with such precious good usage on board the boat be again took passage on her to Memphis and return, and It was on his last arrival in St. Lonls on Monday, the 4th, that he made the acquaintance of the mule shipper. He said he had contem plated a trip across the Plains, and with this view had purchased a fine telescope, com pass, etc. The bonds captured with Lee amounted to $37,155, which was nropcrly secured, scaled and forwarded to ’Washing ton by express yesterday. St. Louis, March o.—The malt bouse of Tiuker Brothers & Co., containing about six thousand dollars’ worth of malt, was burned this evening. Loss $10,030; fhlly Insured.

[Special Despatch to the Chicago Tribune.] St. Paul, Minn., March 0. As intimated in my despatch of yester day, Governor Marshall sent in a message to the Senate vetoing the Normal School Bill, on the ground that it was an excessive ap propriation, and a greater burden than should he Imposed upon a young State. Do does not object to an appropriation of $60,000 for the First Normal School at Winona, and a bill to that effect was accordingly introduced and passed. The examination of Ilawkea for the mur der of his wife is likely to continue for some time. Several Important witnesses arc still absent. FROM MADISON. Recommended for Judicial Ilonors- PoioniQc Army Keunlon—Funeral of Senator Hadley. (Fpcclal Despatch to the Chicago Tribune.] Madison, Wie., March 0. A card is published to-night, signed by < ighty Republican members of tbe Legisla ture, recommending Judge Orsamus Cole as eminently worthy their support for re-clec improving the navigation at Rock Island tion as Associate Justice of the Saprcme Court. A considerable number of Wisconsin sol diers who served in the Potomac Army, have arrived to participate in the reunion which takes place this evening, but the gathering will not be as large as was anticipated. Most of the members of the Legislature went to Milwaukee to attend the funeral ol Senator Hadley. FROM NEW YORK. Nomination for Naval Officer—Collector Smytlie’ft Account of New Stork Cum- tom Bonne a flairs. New York, March d.—A Washington des patch says it is rumored that Colonel A. M. Wood, ol Brooklyn, will be nominated to the Senate to-morrow for Naval Onicer of New York. Steamers City of Antwerp from Liverpool, and Celia from London, arrived to-day. No news. Collector Smythe has addressed a letter to the President, which will be published to morrow, affirming that the New York Cus tom House was never more economically, purely and cfliciently administered than by him. Further reforms and economies will be accomplished os fast as pracitcable. He has weeded out incorapetency, ignorance, In temperance and vice from It, and filled the vacancies with competent and honest men from both political parties, and men of no politics. The business of the Custom Bouse has steadily increased, but the necessary expenditure has not in creased one-fifth of what the House Com mittee of Public Expenditures report. The general order of business was first placed In the hands of E. C. Johnson & Co., without payment, agreement or understanding as to any profits they might make, and was subse quently transferred to Myers & Smith; also without payment, agreement or understand ing, expressed or Implied, with orders to reduce their charges to a basis satis factory to the merchants. But one complaint, and that trivial, has been made from that day to this. Mr. Smyihe repeats that he never received one dollar from this source In any form, di rectly or indirectly, and of course never dis tributed what he never received. It appears from a letter that Mr. Smythc, satisfied with -his other emoluments, once formed a purpose of distributing the whole amount of profits on general orders among certain friends, with portions reserved to protect clerks against electioneering assess ments, but this purpose, as he testified under oath to the committee, was unknown to most, and never was executed, but dispelled from his mind.

New York, March s.—The Herald'd Mexi cam correspondent says: “In regard to the fate of Ortega, now a prisoner in the hands of Juarez, the chances are good for his being bhot as a deserter, though lie may be tried convicted and pardoned when it is found how futile his revolutionary efforts rcallv are.” J Washington, March s.—a letter dated Vera Cruz, February 22, received by the Mexican Legation in Washington, says Gen eral Diaz has thrown a part of his army be tween Mexico and Puebla, and communica tion is now very Irregular. For ten days past we have receded no males from any where west of Orizaba. The telegraph lines are cut. The French left Puebla on the 16th, and a rumor is In circulation that General Diaz has captured the city. The Imperialists report that they obtained two victories over the Liberals, one a-'alust Corona, at Atenqniqne, the other against Curavajal, atiGuanajuato. Very little credit Is given to the rumors, and they uro thought to be circulated by the Imperialists to keep up the spirit of their men, who are becoming more demoralized every day. * RECOSSTIitfCriOJu Action of tbe Virginia Legislature on ilio ConcretHloual Proposition-Gov ernor Plerpoinfa llccommcndatlon Finds Little Favor.
