WMHIWOTOl! HEWS AWD OOSSIP. The Committee on Military Affairs ?Mr. Speaker Banks hai taken due oare to aboli tionise the Military Affairs Committee, though to accomplish that end he has been forced to overlook every member except one, who from serving personally in the field, has become practically acquainted with military matters. The " Cnlled Bredren," though great advo oates for Sbarpe's rifles in Kansas, are famous for being possessed of constitutional horror of associations likely to afford them opportuni ties to become personally acquainted with military matters. They are, as a olass, gen tlemen of brave words, indeed, in debate. But we have yet to hear of the flrst occasion in which any one of them has gone through the apprenticeship, even in reading, likely to make him particularly qualified to aid in guiding and directing the notion of Congress on the military affairs of the government. Gen. John A. Quitman, of Mississippi, is very appropriately at the head of this com mittee. After his distinguished services at head of his brigade throughout the Mexican war, he could not have been placed, with de cency. any where else than in that position, notwithstanding his politics. As a soldier, all the world know him; as a legislator, be may be classed among the most ardent States rights Democrats of the Ilouse ; his peculiar sohool of Democratic politics being of the Cal houn or South Carolina order. His address is capital as an orator, though his voice is not good. His speeches show him to be the pos eeseor of a cultivated mind, and of sentiments on all things guided wholly by a nice sense of right and wrong He Is very effective in the Hall, because ho is eminently sensible in all he does there, and, withall, scrupulously just in his views. Mr. John Allison, of Pennsylvania, is an old member. A lawyer by profession, he en tered Congress originally a Whig, but has gradually become a follower of Mr. Giddings, as that gentleman's school of politics has been gradually coming into favor in the North. His experience in the Hall gives him great weight with his party, few of whom are effective legis lative attorneys. He is a gentleman of good abilities, and makos his points in debate well; though he usually contrives to occupy so ul tra grounds as that none others except those who are his particulnr political friends can coincide with him. Mr. William R. Sapp, of Ohio, was also a member of the last House, though a quiet one. Ho is a lawyer by profession, and a man of sense. Originally a Whig, he is now a Republican-party man, going all lengths with Messrs. Giddings, Ac. He makes no pretensions to be a general debater, but al ways transacts the business he undertakes in the Hall in a business-like way. and with much success Mr. Charles J. Faulkner, of Virginia, was also a member of the last Congress, and nfter the withdrawal of Col. Bissell, of Illinois, be came the chairman of the Military Affairs Committee, to the business of which he has long devoted himself with great energy, in dustry, and success. No gentleman has dis charged the duties of the position more satis factorily to all interested in the efficiency of the army, in twenty-five years past, than Mr Faulkner. He is a lawyer by profession, and politically is a Democrat. He is a man of quite as much erudition and general attain ments as any other member of the House, having been long a bard student As a de bater he acquits himself with great credit, though he avoids, as far as possible, interfer ing in the proceedings of the body, except where his constituents or State may be inter ested. or in conneetion with matters appro priately appertaining to the business of his committee. Mr. John Williams, of New York, is a new member. At home he has been a merchant miller, we believe, rather than a lawyer. Mr. W. has not yet essayed to make a speeoh in the Hall, and, we fancy, makes no pretensions tj oratory. He has, however, evinced fine capacities for business, and is exceedingly popular with his fellow members, which he will doubtless turn to advantage fur the in terest of his constituents. Politically, ho is one < f the staunchest Democrats in the cham ber. Mr. Benjamin Stanton, of Ohio, was a mem ber of the last Congress. He entered public life a follower of Mr. Giddings, and has been that| gentleman's right-hand man up to this time He is a lawyer, professionally, and a member of good abilities ; but so ultra in his abolitionism, as that his capabilities avail him little for effectiveness. Mr. Jumes W. Denver, of California, is a new member, and a Democrat. He is a gen tleman of few words and exoellent sense. We predict for him a careor of great usefulness for his State, as he has already achieved un usual weight with all his fellow members who have coinc to know him well, without trou bling the House for twenty minutes since the session opened. So much for his so evident great sagacity and discretion. iMr. James Buffington, of Massachusetts, also a new member, is a merchant by profes sion, and was a Whig formerly. Now he pro fesses to be a member of the Know Nothing party, and will go Republicanism with reluc tance, we take it. He may not now be inclined to support Fillmore and Donclson ; but we know that tbo wing of his party at home with whom be has so far acted?the anti-Wilson wing?is rapidly organising in favor of the Philadelphia nomination; and we presume that when he finds that he must go over to the Republican organisation or stand with the supporters of F. and D., he will be found with the latter. His experience as a business man bids fair to make him a very serviceable member, bis address being such as to concili ate all towards him with whom he is thrown in contact. Mr. Cadwalader C. Washburne, of Illinois, is a lawyor by profession; though of late years he has devoted his attention principally to lumber getting. Like bisbrothers, from Maine and Illinois, ho is sharp and shrewd, and has given over Whiggery for intense Abolitionism. He is doubtless capable of making an effective member in the transaction of the business of legislation. As jet he has not favored the House with a specimen of his ability us a debater. It Don t Pay?Last night it was very geuerally conceded among the public men who congregate in the usual places for ex changing opinions, in this city, that "shriek ing for Freedom'* over the Kansas contested election case in the course of the debate whioh it is proposed to bring to a close to day, has signally failed to pay. Or, in other words, that the result of the debate has been to make it so plain, that all now comprehend the fact that the cause of those who dub themselves the Free State party of Kansas, has nctbirg whatever but the perversion of truth and aheer pretences to depend on. Not a single item of proof of the truth of the allegations on which the power to send for persons and papers is asked, has been attempted to be ad duced by any one of the many gentlemen who have advocated the adoption of the resolution to that end. The unsupported Assertions of the partiian writers for the New York Tribune and Timet, so often and so completely exploded by the publication of refutations direct from Kansas, form the whole of the testimony on which power U asked to enable the abolition Com inittee of Elections to pay for the services of the gang ef wandering abolitionists, who, after spending some months in Kansas, doing their best to set quiet people by the ears there, are now beggiag money and Sharpe's rifles throughout the non-slaveholding States, to turn the trouble they have made in the Terri tory into treason. Up to this time, these po litical adventurers have lived on the contri butions of the credulous They now seek to get quartered on the Treasury, by being sent for to attend the Elections Committee as wit- I ne8scs in the Kansas election ease during most of the approaching Presidential canvass; and and they propose to devote all their time when bore to the work of gratuitously writing to abolition newspapers against the South, and such Northern members as decline be coming identified with the Republican party Such is the explanation of the persons and papers dodge, contrived only to accomplish that particular end. As we remark above, its supporters have lost ground woefully throughout tho debate because that has made it plain that their oase is a mere budget of the sheerest false pretences. We have no idea that their reso lution can possibly command the support of a majority of the House, though it is very probable that a commission will be sent to Kansas to take testimony. The result of their journey will be more fully to expose the con spiracy and intrigues of the emigrant aid so cieties and the Abolitionists in the Territory' to carry their points by frauds, misrepresent ation.*, and violence. The New Election Law?Herewith we publish at length tho bill to regulate elections in this city, reported yesterday by Mr. Meacham from the House Committee on the District of Columbia, and made a special crder for Tuesday next: A Bill defining the rlehtscf voters and theduties (t commissioners of elections In the city of Washington, and for other purposes, Be tt enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That from and after the passage of this act every free white male resident of the city of Washing ton.

Mr. Brown resumed and concluded the re marks eomuieneed by him a day or two since an the subject of British recruiting in the united States. He sustained with much elo quence and ability the position assumed by Mr Marcy and Mr. Buchanan in relation to this topic ; and paid deserved compliments to the State papers on the American side of the jontroveray. Mr. Mallory agreed with the views exnreds s-t by the senator from Mississippi. He did not believe thnt there would bo any war with England ; there ought to be none ; but if war "hould occur, our resources would be unlimit ed. He alluded to the action of the Spanish government in 1S4S, when tho English minis ter was ordered to quit the capital within forty-ei?;ht hours, or sooner if possible, for in terfering with the domestic concerns of the Spanish government. There could be no im propriety in sending home the British minis ter under our present circumstances. Without taking the question, the further :onsideration of the bill and proposed amend ment was then r.ostponed for the day. Mr. Brodheai's bill constituting aiiy two of the judges of the Claims Court a quorum for the transaction of business, and authoriting the appointment of an assistant solicitor thereto, was next discussed by many mem bcrs, after which tho bill was packed; and then they adjourned. In the House, discussion on the resolution luthorixing the Elections Committee to send for pers<ins and papers in the Kansas oon tested election ca.se was continued by Messrs. Purvianco and Todd for it, and Messrs. Har ris of Illinois, and Letcher against it. Mr. Washburn, of Maine, next obtainad tho floor, when the House adjourned. Pr?c?edis(i of To-Day.

On the question of agreeing to this resolu tion, Mr. Trumbull addressed the Senate in favor of the views presented in the minoritv report. J In the House, numerous bills and resolu tions wero introduced and referred, among them one by Mr. Oliver, of N. Y., which was adopted, as follows: Resolved, That the Secretary of the Inte rior be directed to communioate to this House in connection with hi> response to the resolu tion regarding the expense of completing tho bridge at the Little Falls, passed on the 10th mat., what sum of money would bo required to build a new bridge opposite Georgetown, or, if the purchase of the right of way over the piers of tho Aqueduct be deemed by him more economical, what sum will be required to obtain such right and to erect a permanent bridge thereon. The regular order of busineaa being called for, the resolution authorising the Elections committee to send to Kansas for persons and papers in the contested election case came un, when it was advocated at length by Mr. Washburn of Me.
