Under the impression that the bill reported in the Heuse making the Karitan anil Delaware Bay road a military road aud postrouto would have the effect to afford additional traveling facilities to the public, we were at first inclined to favor it ; but a closer investigation of the subject has satisfied us that the public has no inures*, whatever in the matter, the movement in behalf of the Raritan and Delaware Bay road being purely a speculative one to enable Ute purchasers oi the depreciated block oi an unprofitable road to inflate it to a point t-j eua. ble tbtm to sell out and make a good thing or the operation. The roundabout course or th* ??elbow1 route," as the Camden aud Atlantic bud Raritan and Delaware Bay .circumbendi bus route is appropriately termed, precludes the possibility of Its ever accommodating the public a* athrengh route betweon Philadelphia and New York; and therefore the public Will in ?o sense be the gainer should Congress yas* the bill. But there ar? more serious objections to the project, causing Congress to come to a pause in the consideration of the bill, and which will doubtless pro re fatal to its passage. These point* ot objection made against, the bill, a? set forth in behalf of the State of New Jeieey and the roads she has contracted with, are as follows: The Camden and Atlantic Railroad Company wa<* charter*-d by New Jersey in to con struct a railroad irom Camden south easterly to the Atlantic ocean. The Rantaa an l Dela ware Bay Railroad Company was chartered in trS4, to construct a railroad from Raritan bay to t ape May, alorg the eastern coast of New Jersey. The=e two road? necessarily crossed each other at a point about 40 miles east ot Philadelphia, and about 95 mile? south of New Y or?c, and cow Concress, ad\erse to Ihe intent of New Jersey, is asked to consolidate thtse ;wo corporations, with m-limied privileges in tb' Sta'.e, rts a'.hrcugh-line between Philadel phia and New York, and to build branches anywhere in the State, thus practically treat ing New Jersey as though she had lost her so v ereign rights aud powers as a State, and be come only a dependent territory. Both companies took their charters subject to an act passed in IKK, declaring that it should rot he lawiul to construct any other railroad <than thereof the Camdeu and Amboy Railroad Company) intended or used to trauspori pas sengers or freight across the State between New York and Philadelphia, which act wa3 and Is to expire in lwt>!?; and botn companies, when charged with i '.tending to transact such busi ret?, declared, n the oath of their officers and directors, that hey did not intend t-> do. so. Yet they afterw J-ds entered largely into that business. The < onrt of chancery of New Jer *sey declared th- y were violating the law, and that they must lesist. They ask Congress to authorize them t > do what the Legislature of New Jersey never authorized them to do, what is contrary to the laws of New Jersey, aud what they declared, under oatn, they did not Intend to do They ask Congress to allow them ?with impunity to violate the laws of New Jer *ey? by virtue of which they exist. If those laws are unconstitutional, the Supreme Court of the United States will ?o decide. That court is open to the applicants; but thoy a<k Con- I frees to override the decisions of the courts. The corporations applying for the bill are fOTpCrationa created bv IheSiate Of New .T?r?*"y urdeT her reserved powers, and for limited and specific purposes, to develop her internal improvement sjstesn, aud not to interfere with ouer previously Tested interests, and this r? lat o.a of Internal rights and in'ereats, thus ac cepted and established, ought not to be dis turbed by the United States, whatever the United States government may itself do iu the way of constructing new roads. They are distinct corporations under the laws oT New Jersey, and the bill now before Con gress propose?, substantially, to consolidate tfcem in effect as one corporation, with addi tional powers of extension of roadway within tl?e State, and additional rights as common carriers all subversiveof the original intern of the state, and practically divesting the State of her reserved sovereign jurisdiction over them, within her own limits upon her own soil^ being trie exerci-e ol a powr not conferred uponaud not belonging to the United State3. Th*' State ol New Jersey thirty years ago, at an early period, when Internal improvements were an experiment on this continent, and :ui experiment everywhere in their engineering structure, invited a system which might con z4ect the Delaware Tiver and Raritan bay, aud as ?n inducement to the enterprise, pledged her fa th not to legislate ad er*ely if it vras de veloped; bat considering the expense of opera ting so short a line limited thera'e of charge to the lowest geuMTl practi -al standard, and taxed it according to the income or business, being the Bi-me principal of^axation now Ht opted l.y the Unitt-d States tW Internal rev enue. This being a just sy^t; mof encouraging internal Industry, by great ecouomy aud mti :h experiment through many ye:irs the bjst known methods of communication have been estab lished, to-wit: The I.?eiaware and Raritan canal of sufficient capacity to talc? through s- li.ng \eer-els and sttarn propellers for he;i\ v neight. and the Camds 11 anJ Amboy, 1'hila d< Iphia and Trenton, and New Jersey rail n ads, to convey pa??<eng?rs and light freight ijinckly: and Cotgress is now inyokej tode -troy this syutem, and this established faith ol tl.e State, and to snbver: the purposes for which the Stale created the Raritan and Dela ware bay :ind Camden and Atlantic corpora tors, to this end, under the plea that the ? ifi-r given to Congress ? to regulate 10m a.trce with foreign uatious, and amony th? t .a! States, and with the Indian tribes," < i u!ers npon it such a jurisdiction. li is agreed that under this power "to regu !a e commerco" "among the scvral States" t oi;gtess has the right to pass y'tirrad 'ai' -rap I licable alike to all the States to regulate com merce between them, "or among the several States;" bat the exerci-eof the power to regu la'e commerce among the several States (where tiie jurisdiction does not f.ttach er belong to ?ny one or more ot the States in their Siata capacity,) is a very different power from tout of consolidating corporation* specially and by r.nme within a State, aud empowering them to extend branch road.? e\er> wh?-re wi'.hia the > taie, and transact the business ot a common carrisr wholly wilhm the jurisdiction of and iu dedauce of tbo authority and rights of a Sta'e. as is sought to be done in relation to New Jersey by the House bill, a>id that sach a right exist* in the United States is utterly i.en ied. The ri^ht and power ot ihe United Statss to require railroad companies, vessels. &,3, to ca-ry the mails for reasonable cotnix'nsation is ii.d^pu'.sble, and iht same right aud power to hive tb>* troops aLd muuitionsot war of the Uxied States conveyed exists; but aa laws applicable to all railroads have already been phhfctd on both of these subjects by Congress, the only cause for putting such provisions in tiie p?>ser.t bill is to make them a rider for the userUou of priva e corporate privilege* over which the iruitecl States has no jurisdiction The iuanguration of this principle by Cou t rebt would rmder this body liable to be called upon to grant lailroad privileges through the v tier Sialic, to extend their branch's to any p .rt of their respective State*, regardless of authority, and to unsettle the relations of tiade on which their success and existence d pends The whole railroad interests of the country v.ou!d br impaired by tho con men t uiect of such legislation. It i? shown conclu siiely that ihe precedents referred to ?the V> iie^iii g Bridge and other cases?do not snp. p< rt the peaanf>evt 'he bill In tli- - a ,? -j tt,r Wheeling Bridge, for in s'MJor, ihe a-tlon ?>f Tongre s WJW invoked to <-ottirw> sta?.> )e^i-'tttiop. not tosttbv -rt it.

Its engagements to authorize but Uu- oue wilt *ot prevent it from authorizing more, provi led it makes compensation to the company tutored. And If It did, it would no more .bo a regulation -r#e than the eieci*?u of toll gate# on a turapUre over wUrb trade takes its w?y,a turn ? regulation! It would eimplv be de claring its diecretioa ia advance, instead of manifeetisg it br acting or not acting after wards. Got. Parker, of New Jersey, in his special message to the Legislature of that .State apon tbe subjtct, expresses the feeling of that Suite in the following forcible terms: "The third section of the bill declares the real object ol its originators, whiclvis to empower the companies therein name<$ not merely to carry the mail, or con vey troops and monitions of w ar, but to transport goods, wares, and mer chandise of all descriptions, and passengers, be tween New York and Philadelphia, notwith standing any law of this State to i*e contrary. And ju?t only is. this'authority fcv -be given on jbe main line of the roads, but tJfe proposition be fore Congress is to gTunt the power to carry fre ight and passengers on all branches thereof, bnili sud fo I# built. If such a law be valid, the Legislature of the State is a powerless body, and our citi'/er.s must hereafter beg Congress tcr the privilege of constructing works of pub lic improvement on onr own soil. The passage of such an act (although of no blading force, because unconstitutional; would be an insult to the people of New Jersey. It would take the creatures of our law, now under the ban of judicial injunction for violation of our stat utes, and in direct opposition to the decision ot our courts, attempt to make them indepen dent of and superior to the power that created them. Such action deserves, and should re ceive, the stiongest legislative remonstrance. In response to this message the Legislature of that State almost unanimously passed a series ot concurrent resolutions protesting in warm terms against the passage of the Congress bill. let. Because It proposes to divest<he State of its local territorial jurisdiction over its ovfu ci'izene, within its own limits, over its own soil, and would be the unprecedented and un necessary exercise of a power, not belonging to the United Staff s and never before claimed by the General Government. 2d. Because it proposes to empower these corporations to extend branch railroads any where within the State, wholly within the jurisdiction of New Jersey, to the injury of the State and every railroad interest therein, and in direct defiance of the authority aad rights of the State. 3d. Because It proposes to empower corpora tions, created by the Legislature of this State, to do what the legislature never gave them power to do, to make the creature** superior to the creator, and allow them with impunity to violate the laws of New Jersey by which they exist, and to defy the process of her courts. 4th. Because such special legislation, aimed ? only at New Jersey, wonld be a wanton insult to the dignity of the State, in derogation of her reserved rights, and in violation of the con tract* she has made and which have been pro nounced by the courts to be constitutional and binding. * Thes. facts, and others to the same effect, elicited in the course of the controversy, have had the effect to open the eyes of Congressmen who were at first inclined to favor the bill as a measure of public benefit, but who now see that its specious face covers only a project for private speculation, and they do not 4be fit to give iheir sanction to any such kite.fiying leg islation. | The charter of the Camden and Amboy road is soon to expire, and its special privileges will thus come to an end without violation of State law oi?chartered rights on the part of Congress | Markkitkb's.? A very superior painting' '?The Penitent Magdalen," from the original by Batton, in the Dresden Gallery, attracts much attention at Markriter's, 1S6 Seventh street. It has great merit, in drawing, coloring and ex predion. The flesh tints are especially excel lent. Like other line paintings brought to this city by Marknter, it will doubtless speedily be secured by some connoisseur. At Markriter's may now he seen some French photographs, copies (untouched plates) of pic tures by Horace V'ernet, that are th? most remaikable specimens ot the excellence u which the photographic art has attained, that we have ever seen. We recommend a call at Markriter's to see these wonderful photographs. A fruit piece, by Hartwell, ot New York, treated out ol the familiar conventional style, is amongst tbe latest of Markriter's acquisi tions. It represents simply a couple of melons ami a peach in halves, but the effect is perfect. The picture is a gem, and will certainly be 8petdil> snapped up by some discerning pur chaser. A fine Interior, the fathedral at Ba le, by Ktnnoux; The Deer 1'ass, by Laudseer; and a marine view, (Scene on the French Coast near Havr?,) atw?r Isabey, ar? amongst other pic tures worth inspection at Markriter's. In this connection it may be of service to our readers to remind them that Markriter's stock of picture-frames, cord, tassel?, &.c., &c., is very complete, and all tbe appurtenances to a fine picture purchased here, may be procured and matched at the time, a great convenience, as purc hasers are aware. Markriter's cozy, handeemely furnished es tablishment, with its collection of admirable pictures, is certainly one of the lions of the metropolis.

In new of the near approach of tlfU time when this army may be expected to re sume active operations, corps and other iude , pendent commanders will cause public anl private property for which transportation is not furnished by exieliaf orders, to be sent u> the rear with as little delay as practicable. | No. 2. All Butlers and their employees will leave this army by the 16th instant, and should' sutlers be foand with the army after thst dale, their goods will be confiscated for the benefit of the hcspitals, and their employees w^li be placed by the Provo>t Marshal General at bard labor. Paragraph 3d provides that alter the 16th instant, no citizens shall be al lowed to remain j*lth the army except Govern ment employees, members of the Sanitary and Christian Commissions, and the registered i newspaper correspondents. Paragraph 3 re 1 veins the authority heretofore delegated to Corps Commanders, to grant furloughs and leaves of absence, except in cases of re-enlisted veteriuis, and with this exception no leaves or futlooghs are to be granted, save in extreme case?, until further orders.

Satitrdav. April 8. Hotsb,? Mr. Colfax offered a resolution pro posing the expulsion of Mr. Long, of Ohio, for the sentiments he uttered yesterday in favor of the recognition of the Southern Confederacy. Mr. Colfax tail h<? had offered the resolution, not as the result of consultatiou, but ou his own responsibility. If these sentiments are to go unrebuked. we could not complain of for eign governments recognising that Confeder acy. If thns^from this ball, giving aid andi comlort to the enemy, is nnrebnked, yon ought' not to ask of your soldiers to peril their lives; tor those whew destruction is openly advo-i cated. He Had pondered upon his duty, and felt that be had a donble obligation on him, one as the presiding officer, to administer the dnties ?f tne Chair and the rules impartially, and the representative from Indiana. Mr.Cox replied, saying Judge Oonway, Lin coln, ex-Keprebentaiive Stanton, of Ohio, and others, had heretofore declared themselves in favor of revolution, and for people to establish their separate Independence if they have the power to do so. ' Remarks were called forth by interrogatory, from Messrs Colfax, Garfield and Julian. Mr. Co* MAtteae* kit remarks, decNuisg that the dMMentk portion of the Ohio deten tion tm against the recognition of the Roatfc* ? ?9?/fderac3r* H* would not destroy ttLO UcBsntntion for any purpose, for without it *?*7!e c"?d be no I nion, and therefore no W*ll regulated liberty. We hare, he said, to , State# to restore the Union. That i.u .w isaue next autnmn. We never will J?'<1 '?}? country to secession or abolition. Mr. Kelly, of Pa , aaid Mr. Cox had defended by indirection what be bad not openly dared to advocate. The gentleman from Ohio? Lioag-~ bad but sounded the key-note of the leaders of the Democratic party, and which rallied th? Democrats her* in opposition to all the depart* ments of the Government in carrying on the war. He referred to his colleague (Mr. Ste? Tens) whose views had been criticised by Mr. C<>x. saying that he could nor be compared with Mr. Long, who had vesterdav in effect de clared, "Heaven bless the traitors, but curse my country!" Mr. Dawson, of Pa., remarked that Mr. Lou* said yesterday that he spoke tor hlra?elf at,3 not 1ot the Democratic party, and that ontrfct to be satisfactory. Mr. Miller, of Pa., rose simply for the pur? pose cf entering his protest against the lectures on patriotism from the Republican side: and especially fromhi^ coUeague(Mr. Kellevt, who bad tokl a deliberate falsefood concerning his (Miller's) father, on this floor. Mr. Kelley replied, defending tb* remarks he had previously made concerning his former Eublic position in Pennsylvania; and said thn* is colleague (Mr. Miller) had brought into the House, on a late occasion, a vile spawn of scan dal from Robert Tyler. Mr. James C. Allen, of III., expressed his sut prise that the Speaker should descend from his chair and ofler a resolution to expel the g ntleraan from Ohio for words uttered in de bate. It was without a parallel in the history of the country. Although he (Mr. Allen> was) apainst secession, the gentleman from Ohio had a right to express bis sentiments. TELEGRAPHIC NEWS. FROM OEH'L BANKS* DEPARTMENT. - A BRILLIANT AFFAIR. THK REBELS DEFEATED Cajko, April 8.?The steamer Continental from New Orleans on the evening of the 3d has arrived, bringing a large uumber of Govern ment moles and wagons from Yicksburg. Nine hundred contraband men, women, and children hart arrived irom Alexandria, La Officers of steamers from Red river report a considerable fight 33 mile? above Alexandria, on the ?-th, between Gen. Smith's forces, con sisting of 8,000 infantry under Generals Mowes and Dudley, and Ijee's cavalry aud Dick Tay lor's forces, estimated at l*2,oflo strong, posted on an advantageous positon. The fi^ht lasted about three hours. Our loss is reported to be IK killed and about 60 wounded; that of the rebels much greater, some placing it at St*) killed and wounded. We captured 500 prison ers, and others are still bping brought In. Dud ley's brigade in advance greatly distinguished themselves. Our troops did not halt on the battle ground, but pushed on in pursuit of the retreating foe, and uo rest would be given the rebels. It was Gen Smith's design to %>rce the eu* my to make a stand, and defeat them iu a pitched battle if possible. A considerable number of deserters have en tered our lines. The steamer La Crosse was captured and burned by guerrillas on the 2sth nit. below Alexandria, and her crew released on parole, but b^r officers were retained. A large number of Mississippi refueees are gathering within our lines at Fort Pike and vicinity. Seven hundred, in one lot, are re ported to be leaving the dominions of Jeff Davis. FROM KEtlTl'l'KY. ? I'OKREST'S OPERATION'S THERE. Louisville, April 8.?Nineteen rebels fro? Caldwell county, belonging to the 3d Kentucky rebel c ivalry, gave themselves up to the Pro vost Marshal of Hopkinsville yesterday and were sent here where they took the oath pre scribed by the amnesty proclamation. One of tliem says Forrest on the itith marched between Paducab ami May field, a^l disbanded the :;d, 7th arid t;h Kentucky ret*-1 o??Hir^, tw* p<-* mitted the members to go home. Two hundred rebels are reported to b-1 in the vicinity of the Hermitage, attacked a camp of '.wood-choppers on the south siae of the Cum berland river. A forte lias been sent out to ?capture them. The story of Forrest officers having cro?ded into Indiana to excite th>* people to revolt is discredited here. About 40 guerrillas entered Shelby viile, Ky , at I o'clock this morning, and stole seven horses from Middletcn's stables, and broke open the Branch Hank of Ashland, but before they conld rife it of its contents they b>*cme alarmed at the proximity of the l?'th Ohio cav alry and decamped. They have >>een depreda ting abjut here ior the p.'ist two weeks. The rest of them were arrested and confined in the Taylorsvilte jail on last Friiiay,but on Sunday their comrades made an attack on th?- i?il and releas? d them. LOOAL NEWS. .
