She complains, I naturally enough, of the annoyance which the | circulation of this unfounded statement ecca ! sions her.

The consideration of the naval appropriation bill for the year ending June 30, 1865, was re sumed. An amendment from the Naval Committee, making an appropriation of ? 15,000 for a ceme tery lor the navy and marine corps, near Phil adelphia, was adopted. The amendment of Mr. Orimes, providing that the naval academy shall be returned and established at the academy grounds in Annapo lis, on or before the academic year, in Septem ber 1&65, which had been adopted in Committee of the Whole, came up for a separate vote. Mr. Anthony moved as a substitute for th? amendment that the Secretary of the Navy ap point a board of five naval officers to examine and report upon the most suitable place for the naval academy. Alter considerable debate, the substitute was rejected, and the amendment of Mr. Grimes adopted?yeas 30, nays 10. Houbk.?Mr. Wilson, of Iowa, asked but tailed to obtain leave to oiler a resolution pro viding tor night sessions. The House proceeded to the consideration of the resolution to expel Mr. Long. Mr. Rogers, of New Jersey, opposed the res olution, contending, on constitutional grounds, and by the common law of England, which has ce>mc down to us, that a man has a right to declare his sentiments herein order to more in telligent legislation for the benefit of onrselves and posterity. If the day should ever come when it would be necessary for him te declare such .sentiments as those of the gentleman from Ohio he would do so though prison doors and the Bastile were ready to receive him. Mr. Colfax rose to move the previous ques tion. Mr. Pendleton appealed to him not to do so, as various gentlemen yet desired to be heard. Mr. Colfax said although his heart inclined io the accommodation, public duty compelled him to move the previous question. Twenty six speeches had been made, equally divided on both side?, and he would remind gentlemen that Joshua R. Giddings, in 1942, was expelled under the operation of the previous question. The House proceeded to dispose of the point of erder raised by Mr. Eldridge on Tuesday, that Mr. Brccmall's substitute for Mr. Colfax's resolution proposing to censure Mr. Long by declaring him an unworthy member?was not in order. The Speaker pro Urn (Mr. Rollins of New Hampshire) declared it to be in order. An appeal was taken lrom the decision of the Chair which was sustained, yeas 79; nays 65. Mr. Colfax?The judgment of the House has thus declared, accepted Mr. Broomall's substi tute?lor censure?in place of his own, to ex pel Mr. Long, as it was evident a sufficient vote could not be obtained to expel Mr. Long. lie demanded the previous question, which was seconded?ayes 76, nays 61. The question was then stated?"Shall the main question be now put."1?whereupon Mr. Cox called for the yeas and nays, which were oi dered, and being taken resulted?yeas 75, nays 71. So the main question was ordered to be put. Mr. Col'.ax then made a speech in defense of his proposition. We still live, he said, and with oui gallant soldiers in the field we will live a country as long as time shall last. He gave his reasons for offering his resolution, and eloquently continued until the expiration of his honr. TELEGRAPHIC NEWS. FROM EUROPE.

ThbTl**ll Mcrder Trial.?The trial of the case ot Cornelius Tuell, charged with the murderof his wife was returned this morning in the Criminal (,!ourt before Judge Fisher. As upon yesterday, the court was pretty well crowded by parties who appear to take a live ly interest in the trial. Officer J. F. Kflly sworn?Went to the rest dence ol prisoner on the 19th of February, and examined the premises and tound an axe and hammer, both having marks of blood upon them. There was blood on the handle and blade of the axe, and at the time marked both the hammer and the ax?. The furniture was broken up considerably and there was ft greftt deal of blood in the front roam and also in the bed up stairs. At one place beside the bureau in the room down stairs there was a pile of coagulated blood which seemed to be half an inch thick. Witbess sent the axe and hammer referred to, to police headquarters. The axe looked as though it had been rubbed in order to wash the blood ot!'. In the center of the room down stairs there were marks as though blood had been washed up and ashes sprinkled over the spot. These ashes were in the front room and the stairs go up from the bftck room. Did not see blood at the foot of the stairs, but blood smeared the steps as though some bleed ing matter had been dragged up. (Anaxe and hammer were here shown witness and he iden tified them as the ones be had taken from Tu ell s house.) Witness then continued and does not recollect he saw any sheets or bed clothing on the bed. About a week after the murder witness sold the furniture at Mr. Tuell's re quest and fonnd a coffin screw in thfe bftck room. Cross-examined. ? Witness resided within two squares of Tuell's. There was no one at the house when witness went there on the morning of the 19th. Officer Morris went with witness on the morning of the 19th, and while witness was there some women came in. There is a cooking-stove in the front room. The bu reau is fire or six feet from ?he sto /e, and marks of blood were in front of the store and bureau. The stairs leading up from the back room are not more than two leet wide, but witness thinks there is a railing. There was blood in the room up stairs. The blood at the stove looked as though an attempt had been made to wash it up. Caroline SewalU colored, sworn.?Knows Cor nelius Tuell, who lived within forty feet of witness. Recollects the day Mrs. Tuell died. Upon the day alter Mrs. Tuell's dnath the children were in witness's house. The chil dren came to witness's house by themselres witness did not see the fatherr-about 8 or 9 o'clock in the morning, and lett there about 9 at night, when the father came for them. The first time he ?ame was about o'clock, and asked the little boy where bis mother was. The boy replied that he did not know, and" witness told Tuell that she thought she was in the house, locked up; when he replied no. the doors are all open, and she has gone. Tuell came back about 9 o'clock to get the children, but before this time witness heard the rum bling of a wagon in the allev, and the gate open. When he came for the children he did say anything as witness recollects. By the detense.?Witness was in the habit of seeing the deceased daily, except a short time before her death. Witness did not sav on the preliminary "xamination that she heard the r^roblingof the wagon between 4 and 5 o'clock; nor did she state that Tuell came after the chit dren about 5 o'clock. She was also examined be.ore the coroner's jury at Olenwood,' but don't recollect of her having testified to Tuell coming to her house about 4 or 5 o'clock. Mrs. Catherine Somen sworn.?Witness knows the prisoner and knew the deceased and lived near them until last New Years'eve. Witness has seen her setting in the yard in the middle of the night?and very rainy nights?and she said her husband drove her out. Witness did r.ot see him. The lollowing day witness saw the deceased and saw bruises on her person. Wiiness could not say how often she had seen the deceased bruised; it was too often. Witness never heard the prisoner whipping the de ceased. When witness saw her bruised she asked deceased to come in and stay in her honse and one night she stayed at the witness's house all night. Her face was bruised. By thedelence.?Witness's house was in the alley. She could not say that sheerer saw the deceased in liquor. Mrs. SewaU, recalled by the prosecution.? Witness never saw Tuell strike his wife. Five weeks previous to her death Mrs. Tuell was badly bunged up, and was confined to her bed several weeks. The bruises were black and blue and her shoulder seemed to be out of place. The bruises were mostly on the body, and there were scratches upon her lace. Witness has seen Mrs. Tuell run out of the yard and he after her with somethMTg-m tiis hand, as If to strike her quite often; generally in the after noon. Mr^. Tuell would scream so on such occasions that witness did not hear what was said. She sometimes went in the neighbors' houses for refuge, and on one night?a very stormy one?she came to witness' house abr>ut ten o'clock and remained all night. The de ceased went back to her house on the night In question and tried to get in, but the doors were all locked. Witness did not go with her, but saw her try to get in. The Troubled at McKexdree Chapel? Thr Church Split.?It seems that the troubles of McRendree Chapel and Sunday school. In stead of dying out, are still on the increase, and that that once prosperous church is destined to te broken up. Those who have read ol the troubles will recollect that the difficulty origi nated from arepertmade to the Quarterly Con ference by the Kev. W. A. Cook as to the con dition of the Sabbath school, in which it was stated that the school did not appear to be con dr.rted on sound Methodistieal principles; that many ot the library books were religious novels, ?fcc. The Quarterly Conference passed a reso lution requesting the school to subscribe to the Sunday School A-h-ocale, and relating to the scl'ool becoming auxiliary to the Methodist Episcopal Sunday School. The teachers of the school in February last held several meetings to consider tne action ol the Conference, and alter considerable debate, in which Messrs. Hf.rkness, Davis, Squires. JRevs. W. A. Cook ami Ferris took part, and during which there was much feelinr exhibited, a report, accom paried by a resolution requesting the Quar teilv Conference to reconsideriheir action, was adrpted by a vote ol ;?? to 10. The Quarfe-ly Conference was held on the -21th March, when the Conference re-affirmed I s action. At this imeting the Superintendent* of the school (J. C Darkness) presented his l!ith annual report, but it wms ruled out of order by the Presiding Elder. Some of the members of the Conference, on account of this action, left ttie meeting: and on Air Darkness gqi^is to meet his class at their nex* meeting, he lo'ilnd that the minister had takei. charge of if. Quite a number of ttie members of the Church have ? now deter mined to withdraw jxom it. It is stated that? atout ->5(' (something more than hair") have de termined on this course, and a number of the Echolars of the Snn'rtay school have also left. Th* vestry of Trinity Mission, corner Six'h and N streets, offered the seceders the use of their house, and for the past -twc? Sabbah mornings, school has beed r.eld here, and the members have held priver meetings. There is but little donbt t>ut another Church will beformi-d, almost all hopes of a recon ciliation have been abandoned. AKOTetR Demand fox; Huwbr Waoes ? Last night, the journeymen horse-shoers, pet announcement in the Sfar, held a meeting at tne Exchange Hotel, on C street, between Ht and 0th, and organized a preliminary mfettAg by appointing Mr. William Murphy chairman, and Mr. Oliver Anderson secretary. There was but little time spent in discussion, but alt quickly agreed that their wages must be in creased, and a resolution was therefore unani. mously adopted that they would demand $l* per week for firemen aud tfM5 per week fojr floormen, from and after next Saturday eveniug. The wages received now are ?15 for the former and ?12 for the latter class of workmen. It was also resolved that each journeyman inform his employer of the demands of the organization, and that another meeting be held on negc Sat urday evening, at the same place, when the organization wHl be perfected. It was stated that employer* had lately in creased .their prices. A resolution was adopted that if the deniands of the workmen are not complied with tiiere wilt be a general strike upon Monday next, and all journeymen horse sheers are invited to co-operate In the move ment, and those who refuse to do so are to be considered as unworthy ol association with such members as demand what they believe are simply their rights, and the members of the organization pledge themselves to sustain each other in this matter, and to refuse to work in the same fchop Vlth any workman who will not stand up for the increase.
