A H. W. SMITH'S AMERICAN ORGAN. . Among the different inventions originated and perfected by American ingenuity during the \ia~t twenty years, few are more surprising thau the improvement in musical instruments, especially in reed instruments, known as " REED ORGANS."' HARMONIUMS and MELODEONS. European taste has long seemed to ha\e been satisfied with the Organs of Alexandre and Pleyel, although neither of those instruments afford much real variety of tone, notwithstanding the makers have multiplied stops and sets of reeds, and by conse quence the cost, to an extraordinary degree. The American Organ, made by 8. D. A H. W. Smith. Boston, may safely challenge comparison with either of them, v^ether as regards variety, power and sweetness ot tone, or cost. All reed instruments made by the best manufac turers in this country are constructed on the same principle, viz: of /hawint the air through the reeds by an exhaustive bellow*, instead of forrint it through them by powerful pressure, and the "American Organ" differs from its competitors mainly in three points: 1st, the great care and thoroughness exercised in manufacture; 2d, in the skilful voicing, giving aa many different qualitie> of tone as there are sets of reeds; and 3d. in the use of a reverberating box, which adds materially to the power of the instrument without detriment to or table, and then on a large empty box or barrel, and observing its vastly increased power and rich ness when in the latter position. In these three points?and they are certainly material ones?is superiority claimed bv the Ame rican Organs of Messrs. 8. D. & H. W. Sm ith over the read instruments of other makers. Tim Messrs. Smith being the most experienced Reed Organ makers in Boston (having established them selves in 1892) and having at least equal facilities with any other makers, have always kept them selves familiar with all improvements and inven tions in their departinert, and they confidently a-sert their "American 0?<;ans" to be unequalled in voicing, and unsurpassed by any, at home or abroad, in purity, sweetness and power of tone. The contrivance for producing varied expression, such as the "treble forte," tremolo and the awell. and the ease with which change of stops maybe made, render the American Organ, in skillful hands, capable of as much delicacy of expression and variety of effect as the expensive Harmoniums of Alexandre with their thirteen registers, and while undoubtedly far superior in durability, is sold for less than half the cost. The demand in England for 8mith's American Organ is steadily increasing, and ia an irrefraga ble proof that it triumphantly stands the test of competition in their own market with the most celebrated European instruments. JOHN F. ELLIS, 306 Pennsylvania avenue, be tween_9th and loth streets, is the sole agent for these instruments; and at his rooms can always be found a complete stock. je 8-3t Do tot,I-eS*Finary suegeon. ~ , B JOHN B.

I have ne favors to ask, and but one act of justice?that the inquisition may not be ex parte; that is, one sided. Your obedient ser vant, Ben-i. F. Butler. Mr. Davis said this letter was In terms such as any man conscious of his innocence would use. The terms of the letter were calculated to increase his estimation of Gen. Butler, as they make an appearance of prima facie evi dence in his favor. Gen. Butler may be in nocent of the charges contained in his (Mr. Davie) resolution. He had no personal preju dice against that General, and if he was in nocent, be would be gratified to find it so, as he would of any one else; and he thought every man should have the opportunity to prove his innocence. General Butler has of course read the reso lution and writes his letter in view of its char acter. The resolution calls for a committee of three to be appointed by the Chair to investi gate, and with power to send for persons and papers. He understood General Butler there fore to have accepted the gaugejustin the form it has been tendered. As a Senator and a man he felt perfectly competent to do Gen'l Butler justice, according to the truth of his case. He therefore hoped the Senate wonld at once pass the resolution without debate, and authorize proceedings with matter in the manner desig nated. At the request of Mr. Harris, Mr. Divis re - frained from pressing his resolution at the mo ment. Mr. Trumbull, from the Committee on the Judiciary, reported back the bill in relation to the fees and emoluments of the Marshal, Attor ney, and Clerk of the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia, and for other purposes, with an amendment as a substitute. Mr. Powell moved to suspend all prior or ders and take up the bill to prevent officers of the army and navy, and other persons engaged in the U. S. service, from interfering in elec tions. The motion was rejected. House.?Mr. Cox, from the Committee on the Rules, reported an amendment to the same, namely: To admit ex-members to the floor of the House, provided that such persons sub scribe to a statement, to be filed with the Speaker, that they have no interest, either directly or indirectly, in the prosecution of any claim or bill before Congress: and that they will not use their influence to further the inter est of any one before Congress. After a conversation between various mem ters, the new rule was laid on the table. The Senate's amendments to the Internal Revenue bill were ordered to be printed and committed to the Committee of Ways and Means. The House resumed the consideration of the bankrupt law. Several gentlemen expressed themselves in favor of the bill, and one only (Mr. Cravens) against it. Mr. Jencks, of Rhode Island, who reported the bill, made a few remarks, urging its pass age, and moved the previous question. Mr. Steele, of New Jersey, moved to lay the bill on the table, and the motion was disagreed to?yeas 49, nays (55. The bill was not further acted on, because it bad not been engrossed. TELEGRAPHIC NEWS. NATIONAL REPUBLICAN CONVEN TION. Baltimore, June The Convention reas sembled at ten o'clock, President Dennison in the chair. Prayer was offered by the Rev. Mr. Gladdis, delegate from Hamilton county, Ohio. The hall was, if possible, more crowded than yesterday, everv nook and corner being occu pied to its utmost capacity. The President called for reports from com mittees. The committee on the order of business, by its chairman, Day, of Connecticut, reported the rules to control the Convention in the transac tion of its business; which were read, amended and adopted. Mr. King, of New York, chairman of the committee oi credentials, reported, that after p atient 1 y in vestigati ng the c laims o f every State, the Missouri radicals were admitted, and the Arkansas delegation admitted to seats, without permission to vote. The South Carolina dele, gation were not admitted. The delegates from the District of Columbia were admitted to seats, without the right to vote. The report of the minority was presented by Mr. Stevenson, of West Virginia. The report of the majority was concurred in, except so far as it excluded delegates tromVir ginia, Arkansas, and the territories of Colo rado, Nevada, and Nebraska, from the right of voting. The portion of the majority report so far as related to the uncontested delegation was adopted. Mr. King, chairman of the committee, moved to amend the report so far as related to the Missouri Delegation, known as the Uncondi tional Union Delegation, "that they be admitted with the radical delegation, and where the two delegations agree they cast the vote or the State, and where they do not agree the State should not vote." An exciting debate ensued on this amend ment. Mr. Breckinridge moved to amend the amend, ment so that instead of silencing the vote of Missouri when the two delegations are unable S agree that the vote of the State be divided. e proceeded to address the Convention on his motion. Mr. Cnstis, ot New York, earnestly advoca ted the majority report, and asked the Conven tion to settle on it for all, by admitting the radical delegation After farther debate tbe previous question was called for, and the Convention proceeded to vote on the amend, ment offered by Dr Breckinridge, to admit both delegations and to divide the vote of the State between them. Tbe amendment was rejected. Tho Convention then voted on the main question of Mr. King's amendment to the ma jority report, to admit both delegations, with authority to vote where they can agree. and where they should not agree the vote of the State should not be cast. Th? was also rejected. The question then recurred on the adoption of the majority report. A call for a vote by States was made; and the vote resulted in the unanimous admission of tiie Radicals, only four votes in the negative being given; three from Pennsylvania and one from Kentucky.

LOCAL NEWS. Retebhing Home.?The steamer Cossack arrived about noon to-day, bringing up the 2d Rhode Island regiment, whose term ot ser vice expired Monday. This regiment came out in June, 1861, and was for a short time en camped near Gales' Woods, after which they encamped on the Seventh street road, and built Fort Slocum. They came out with fall ranks, 1,010 officers and men, and have since received numerous recruits, conscripts, <fce., and during the time over two thousand have been in the ranks, and out of the entire number there are about 250 remaining, the other having been killed, wounded and discharged. After the regiment started for home seven of them were killed or wounded, having been picked off by rebel sharpshooters. About 100 re-enlisted men were left behind. This regiment has been at tached to the 4th brigade, 2d division, 6th corps, and is now under command of Major Jenks, (Lt. Col. Reed being at home in Rhode Island, having been wounded in the Wilderness.) Their tattered and torn flags evidence the many hard-fought battles they have encaged in. But three of the original officers are now with the regiment. They expect to leave for home to night. Affairs in Georgetown? The Coal.heaven Strike.?The various coal companies were with out laborers at their docks all day yesterday; the laborers having struck for higher wages the day before. The agents immediately sent to tbe various contraband quarters, and ob tained new gangs to work for the same wages the strikers refused??1.50 per day. The gangs are not as numerous as required, but will be reinforced to-day. This morning some of the old gangs went to the docks and proposed to go to work again, but were peremptorily or dered away by the agents. 7he Canal is full of boats for about two miles above the aqueduct, all laden with coal.

Mayor Wallach'8 Speech.?By the pub lished remarks of Mayor Wailach on Monday night he is incorrectly reported to say that there was not a man who supported his oppo nent who was not either a copperhead or who believed the destiny of the negro was para mount to that of the white man. What he did say was that Mr. Semmes was supported by "those who desired the division and destruction of the Union that slavery might be perpetuated, and by those who sought to preserve U., Union for the use and benetit of the negro alone." And ot course he did not in tend to be understood that all who supported Mr. Semmes were of these two classes. Accident to M'llb Marietta Ravei..?
