SPIRIT OF TBK MORNING PRE8S The Intellig nur ;i;s of the action of the Bouse, yesterday, in adopting Mr Letcher's amendment to the civil and diplomatic appro priation bill: :'Tbe proposition of Mr Letcher to engraft upon the general appropriation bill the Tariff bill reported b j the Committee of Ways and Means called a ooropromise, if concurred in by the House will proseat matter for grave ?reflection on the part of the Senate. In the latter body it will be remembered some of the prominent members of thedominent party Sve intimations of an apprehended crisis ;eiy to grow out of the alleged ulterior par poses of the Allies, and they warned the peo ple to be on the alert and watch with jealcufy the movement of the two great naval Powers of Europe If the apprehensions tha? some what oracularly expressed are well founded, tie great American constituency will cataral Jy begin to irquire into the soundness of tho policy which reduces the revenue and at the same time leaves the defeners of the country in an imperfect condii ion We cannot believe, however, that, with to brief a period for con sideration. Congress will consumate so radical a change in tho revenue system of the country as to reduce the national income when both the navy and the army s-.em to require a heavv augmentation. " 3 The InttUligenrer also say a, for Mr. Seaton, that he did cot vote at the nominal eloction of offioers for the National Washington Monu ment Association that took pltos on Thursday M represented by one of our evening co temporaries. The Union discusses "the objects of the British and French Allianoe"?and the able and remarkable sptech of Senator Ca?s, de livered a day or two since on that question, and also devote? a column to a demonstration of "Lord Elgin's attack upon American in ?titutions." WASHINGTON NEWS AND G085IP. An Exciting Day .?1 esterday's eewicn of tee Houso T.aj one of perhaps more excite ment, while taey wire in Committee of the ^ hole on tho elate of the Union, than had oecurred in their hall previously uuring the present sees on. The occasion of the hubbub boo was Mr. Edgerton s amendment to admit very coarse and very fine wools?such as are not grown in this country to any extent?and railroad iron imposed in the next sixteen months, and such as has been imported in the last twenty months, dcty free. Pennsylvania set her face against ii, and succeeded in sub stituting for it the original bill for the general reduction of the tariff, reported by Mr. Hous ton, from the Committoo of Ways and Means Bo far as Pennsylvania is ooncerned, her dele gauon universally conspired, as it were, it aeems to us, "to bite off her noso to spite her face." She produoes some forty-five or fifty Billions worth of iron annually, about two hundred thousand dollars' worth of which is in theshapeof railroad iron Her delegation v jted unanimously to decrease the dety from thirty to twenty four per centum, for all time, on the whole quantity and every description of iron she produces, to prevent railroad iron, of which ?he makes but two hundred thousand dollars' worth per annum from ooming in duty free for sixteen months! Our opinion was expressed at the opening of the session?indeed, before 4he session opened-aa to the better -policy of admitting railroad iron duty free unUl after the end of the preaeat disastrous season for railrcads under construction and about to be undertaken. The deleat of the proposition, it strikes us. must be the signal for the stoppage of nine-tenths of the current work on progress lag railroads, and the prevention of the com mencement of nine-tenths of the railroads which otherwise would speedily be put under contract. As for the contemplated Mississippi railroads, the man is hardly alive who will see them fairly under way without some such law as that proposed by Mr Edgerton. Pennsyl vania, by her movement, has simply labored to shut off all demand for her railroad iroa~ to cripple her customers for that article. Had ahevoUd on the other side of the question, she would, on the other hand, ba7e so strength, ?ned them and stimulated their operaUoas, as i hat their demands for turn-outs, sidelines, and other railroad paraphernalia, which she man ufactures, would aave required far more than two thousand dollars p?r annum for us supply, and at her own prioes. We think, therefore, that in 4 going in" in a body to de crease the duty from thirty to twenty-four per centum, for all time, on all tho forty-live or fifty millions of dollars' worth of iron Penn sylvan la produces annually, in preference to the proposition of Mr Edgerton, they have made a grave mistake, indeed Ahead ot Time ?There can be doubt of the entire Illegality 0f the election of a new beard of managers for the Waahington Monu ment Association on the Jay before yesterday. The first board was chosen in 183i under a constitution requiring a new board to be ohosen ?rery three years thereatter, until the com pletion of the noble work. This brings the proper time for the election to February 186? instead of February, 1865. The constitution direct t! "J*0' lhW ?xUtin? *>o?rd shall th* n ? Mcce*dlDS election to be held at utkoritj k> u> do, th*n Indeed, no member of the board of ??w it IB tho uompopon o?.t Lhe j the individual named above. Under these ciroumstances, the action of our over sealous fellow oitisens who, ooth#(Uy yesterday, fancied they were turniog (ieneral Vfn-field Scott, (ieneral Archibald Henderson. Col. Wui W. Seaton, Mr Psttr Foroe, Mr. Ellsba Whim#,.,, Mr B H Snuth th#ir so deeply respected fellow oitiaen, aad Mr. F R. Feudal], neck and heels oat of the beard, proves to have been a wute of time?nothing MH i ? A city cotemporary, in its zpai for the desired change, haa fallen into error in representing that the action of itafriendi met theianctioaof Gen. Henderson and Messrs. Seaton and Fore*. Wo know, of our own knowledge that no i others in this commanitj more emphatically disapprove it Those three gentlemen went up to the City Hall to ascertain upon wha'. nu'hority tbe call for an election had been issued, and were as much disappointed as any others to find some hundred* of people assembled there t-> rote the affairs ofthe Na ticaal Monument Association into their own hands, with as little legal authority so to do, as, on that occasion, and in the same waj to voto tho present Government of Lho United | Stntes out of office, and their own secret nomi nees into their several positions. Finding their retreat blocked by the crowd thoy were forced to pasa on with the crowd, to tho ballot box, and when there, by way of amusement, took tbe only ticket to be found on tho ground two of them vote* i:, as opening the easiestand quickett escape from the pressure of tho crowd in the rear. We regret the faux pas of those who started this attempt at an illegal election; inasmuch as it surely involves the defeat ot the bill ef Mr. May, giving $200 000 from the National treasury in aid of the work. We regret it farther, because while their efforts though abortive?bid fair to prevent I those not sympathising with them, from here af-er subscribing to tbe fund of the sssocistion. teeing a failure it will not bring into the fund the money which the friends of the movement I would probably have subscribed, had they suc I ceeded. We fear that their devotion to the I memory of Washington is not strong enough I to superinduce tbe subscription in aid of tbe I work thej contemplated making, unless their own nominees rather than tho so universally revered and respected citiiens now in the board are to have tbe future management of tbe fund. We trust it may terminate other I wise, however. Nous vzrrons J Accountability for Army Clothing ?It is 1 held by the accounting officers that the opin I ion of a Board of Survey, is not the evidenee I required to warrant a oredit being given at I tbe Treasury for clothing or any other public I property lost or damaged while in tho posses sion or an officer The thirty-sixth article of I war makes it the duty of every officer to pre serve the clothing and other publio property I in his possession ; and the third section of an I set of Congress, approved the 18th of May, I 1S2?, ?regulating the accountability for I clothing and equipage issued to the army of I the United States, and for the better organi I sation of the Quartermaster's Department," I requires evidence under oath that proper care I was taken of the property by the officer claim I ing a credit for its loss or damage, to enable the Secretary of War to relieve him from the I accountability. j Tc? meet the difficulty of complying with t'je formality of an oath at frontier stations, a deposition before a Judge Advocate or He corder of a Court Martial, an Adjutant cf a regiment, post or battalion, or in the absence of these, before any commissioned officer, is deemed sufficient testimony, If it is set forth in the deposition, that no eivil magistrate or other person qualified to administer an oa-h was at hand or within reasonable distanco The object of surveying damaged supplies, under the regulation of the Quartermaster's I Department, is for the information of the Seo retary of War as to the actual condition of the supplies; the naturo of the damage, and. as far as practicable, its probable oauso ; and I to assess tbe amount ot damage, that the or I ders for their final disposition may be given with judgment, and that the amount to be charged to the officer liable, if charge ii to be made, may be determined; it is, further, fcr the security of any officer receiving dam aged supplies, that he may not at some future time be held accountable for them as being umtjured at the time of their receipt. In Ciices of doficieLcy by aooidental losi, theft, or otherwise, no survey is preBc ibed, though, it is perhaps better for an officer, when a defi cieney of property in his charge has oocurred under peculiar circumstance, to fortify himself wJh an official examination by his brother officers The Claima Court.-The great unanimity with which the House yesterday pafeed the bill for the establishment of a Court for the preliminary examination of claims on the 'Jovernment of the United States, proves that Congress (the Senate having previously passed the bill) are at length fully aiiro to the abso lute necessity of doing away with tbe system under which they have in vain attempted to legislate upon private rights for the last ten years, which has been but keeping the promise of justice from the National Government to tbe poor and comparatively friendless. The untold thousands who have lingered on hope deferred for tbe last quarter of a century, not a fow ol whom would otherwise soon die in bare garrets and almshouses, owe a deep debt of gratitude to Mr. J. Glancy Jones, of Penn.1 sylvania, whose firmness and s^acity gave a triumph yesterday against the earnest ap peals and protestation of, it seemed to us, nearly half the House, tho impres-ion of the so vociferously protesting members evidently oemg teat the bill could not then be considered without consuming two or three days ofthe brief remainder of tbe session. We need hardly add, too, that Mr. Brodhead, to whose energy and industry they are indebted for not only its passage through the Senate, but for the actual oonception of the measure, has labored before it so as to deserve their thanka for a life time. But for him, Mr Jones could bot have got it through the House. He fought for it for months in the Senate contending1 every inoh of ground and winning it too, from a host of the most talented and persevering opponents in publio life. The Debate in tha Senate ?Yesterday's debate in the Senate over the bill for the pro tection of U. 8. officers in the execution of tha fugitive slave law, was the most ferocious of the present session. Its ehief feature was the debut of Senator Wilson, in the abolition arena. He declared tbe purpose of himself and other New England new lights to be, at all costs and hasards, to abolish slavery in tha Distriet of Columbia, and wherever the Inited States have exolusive jurisdiction Such was the "git" of his speech of the day. ?aval Medical Board ?A Board of officers, consisting of Surgeons Thomas Dillard, James *?

Mr. Edgerton appealed; and the decision or the Chair was overruled?ayes 81, noes 87. Aftor debate, in which Messrs. Edgertea ;?nd Banks advocated the said amendment, .tud Messrs. Witte and Ho wo opposed it, Mr. Pratt moved to include raw silk in the free lint. The amendment to the amendment was rej' otcd after a five-minute's speech from Mr. P. lor it, and another from Mr. Millson against it Mr. Letcher moved to amend the amend ment of Mr. Edgerton by substituting therefor Mr Houston's project for nn entire revision (reduction) of the duties on imports. And then, after debate between Mr. Letcher for it, and Mr Ingersoll against it, it was adopted ayes 102, noss not counted. The committee then rose, and the bill, as | amended, was reported back to the House, and 'he main question (under the operation of the previous question) was ordered to be put, pend ir.g which the House adjourned. Procrrdinyn of To Dny, In the Senate, to-day, Mr. Seward presented a petition for an appropriation of public lands in thie city for a site for thceroction of a mon< umcnt to Thomas Jefferson's memory. Mr. Mason reported bask from the Foreign Affairs CommiUee the House hill of Mr Per kins. of Louisiana, remodeling and reforming the diplomatic and consular system of the Government, without amendment. Mr M , moving to put this bill on its passage argued with great earnestness in its favor, and in the course of his remarks, paying warm compliments to Mr. Perkins, the author of the | ' measure. In the House, Mr. Giddings rising to a cor rection of the Journal of the day before, moved to have it io amended as to show the fact that he had protested against not being permitted to explain his vote upon the bill making an appropriation to carry out the awards, against the Government, of the joint commission lately in session in London. The Speaker overruled the motion of Mr. G to correct the journal. Mr. Giddings appealed. Mr. OrT moved to lay the appeal on the | table ; laid on the table. Mr. Disney asked leave to report from the Public Lands Committee varioui bills donat ing lands in aid ot the construction of rail roads. Mr Hamilton objected, and leave was not igranted.
