The American Chamber of Commerce gave a grand banquet to-night In honor of the heroes of the Aflac tic Cable, at which fine gold meda’s wrre presented to Cyrus W. Field, Cap tain Anderson, Mr. Canning, and Mr. TYUloncLby Fmilh. The entertainment was a splendid affair. Ihc American Minister and all the leading American merchants of the city were present. Wm. Ralhbone, Esq., presided. The usual loyal toasts were given and the health cf the President of the Untied States drank. Mr. Adams in reply to a highly complimentary toast, disclaimed all personal credit for the main tenance of peace between England and America, faying bis course bad been dictated by tbe American Government. Be thought the magnitude of the relations between the two coun tries bag been the guarantee of peace. The tele*; graph would, be hoped, strengthen that guaran tee, and ultimately supersede diplomacy and merge the world into one nation and one lan guage. Mr. Rathbone, Chairman, proposed ihe health of the projector of the Atlantic Cable and his as sociates. lie awarded the highest credit to Mr. Field as the projector of the great undertaking, and extolled his perseverance. Mr. Field ictniLcd thanks for the honor cs* tended. Dc said he would be eve* grateful for the valaalilememcnto he hal rccciv.-d. De contrast ed the present suedes of the Cable with the severe ff isappoinlmcnts the work had mot with in the past. Be did justice to all engaged it the great enter prise, from the Government authorities d'jwn to the saviors acd workmen. He said existing cables were perfect in their con struction, and conld do twelve times thcamoutto! work whkh offered. Be therefore boped the tariff on messages would soon be re duced so that both lines might be kept constantly In operation. De was in favor of allowing the tnvnsmlesiou of political intelligence to the press or-bo’h sides of tbe ocean at rates which would enable them to publish fullness of Ihc world every day. Be promised that the working facilities of 'be Cable should be improved and ex tended in America, and eloquently expatiated on the futnre benefits to be derived when these 1m provements have been completed. De concluded by hoping the Atlanlic Cable would be lie means ot cementing the friendship of the two nations; that words of enmity might never pass between the mother and the child, who enjoyed the only blessings of liberty existing in either hemis phere. Mr. Field'* speech was received with most en thusiastic applause. Captain Anderson made a speech, in the course of which he declared tlm had it not been for the exertions of Mr. Field the Cable would never have been laid. A speech was also made by Willoughby Smith.

Drake’s amendment proposed yesterday, requiring the new Constitution to provide for voting by ballot was rejected, after a brief debate this morning, by more than two to one. Tha re mainder of the day was given to the considera tion of Mr. Fessenden’* amendment, which pro vided in effect that the registration ol voters shall lake place first nnd.*r the orders oftiie military commanders, and that the people of the State shall then decide oy voting whether they will or will sot hold a Convention for the purpose of reconstructing under tbe Congressional plan, and if ibey decide in ;he affirmative, a Convention shall be called, and other proceedings had in accordacce.wilb (he pro visions of the original bid. The debate waa eaniest but took a very wide range. Messrs. Fessenden, Trumbull, Wilson, Howard, Stewart, Johnson, Morton, Henderson, Nye, FreUngLnysen and others, took part therein. The amendment was voted down by a heavy majoritv. Ibe Senate is sißl manifesting a disposition to stand by the bill as it came from tbe committee. Ibe Debate will certainly occupy another day. Ibe Senate voted early this afternoon to have a ses sion ibis evening so as to finish the bill; but re scinded the order afterward, when it was found the House bad adjourned over to Monday. SEW TORE CCSTOU HOUSE PBAUD9. The persona! explanation made In the Douse to-day by_ Mr. llulburd in reply to the denial of Senators Doolittle and Patterson, end the letter of Collector Smytbc, created a general sensation, and was regarded not only as e com plete vindication of the committee, but as placing the persona named above In a far worse position ihau before. The Douse went even further than was desired by Mr. Holburd, who desired the committee t j pa*s on the whole matter and continue ihc investigation, and otdered the same committee to continue the Inquiry and to determine,also,whetberJMr. Smythe bad beeu guilty ol high crimes and misdemeanors wiifatn the meaning of thd Constitution, and If so to present articles of impeachment against him.

QUESTION Or ADJOURNMENT. The House is getting very anxious to adjourn, and at least one-found of the members axe al .-cad> absent. 'J lure is an apprehension on tbe pari of a few gentlemen, that so many of those who favor a recess t!>l late in tbc fall will leave before the time for taking It is fixed, that tbc im peachment parly will be strong enough lo prevent an adjournment. NOMINATIONS. The President to-day sent lo the Senate but few nommsuen?. Among them were General L. T. Rose, for Collector, and A. R. Chase for Assessor of the Ninth Illinois District. GENERAL CHANT. General Grant was on the floor of the Senate ior nearly an hour this afternoon. INDIAN APPBOpniATTON ACT.

In bis remarks Goal said : “Ihe principal üb'eclof tbe mission whicb has been confided to me is to maintain, as my worthy predecessor has dene, aid even to craw more closely each dav. Jr possible, the relations of friendship tvh’lcb unite Spain with this Republic, by bringing to a close at tbe present, and avoid ing in the intnre, every question capable ot dis turbing ibe harmony which exists between the two nations, and which my Government desires to preserve also worthily*with all the State? of America. To obtain this 1 hope to merit your goou will and the co-operation of your enlight ened Government, bolding myself fortunate should 1 achieve the lull accomplishment of so noble and devoted a purpose.” The President, in reply, welcomed Signor Goal, and added that the United States and Spam were at first allies; thevhave never ceased to be friends.
