OM.RtSSIOYAI. j Senate ?Yesterday afternoon, the bill pro- I viding tor negro suffrage in the District bnag I under consideration? ' Air. Anthony offered an amendment provid- I ing that no person should have the right to I vote who, in any way, gave aid or coiulort to I the enemy during the late rebellion. j Mr. Wilson hoped the Senator would rot I press the amendment. He repealed his argil- I ment in favor ot impartial suffrage, saying I that the nation had suffered more during the I last few years from the vicious conduct of in- I te||igent men 'ban it conld possibly suffer from I the mistakes of ignorant men Mr. Poineroy thought the Senator nnder- I valued the amendment of the Senator from I Rhode lslanil. (Mr. Anthony ) It restricted I ail persons engaged iu the rebellion from I voting, whether they had left the District or I not. He would vo'e for it because he believed I it right. He did not believe that men should I be disfranchised because they were not able to J rend and wri'e. while franchise was given to I those who had been engaged in the rebellion Mr. Cowan asked who was to determine in I regard to this matter of disenfrancbisement. I The law would be simply :i nullity However I i' might be with the people of the States of tais I Union, the people of the District of t'olumbia I owed a direct per-onal allegiance to the Gov- I ernment. Ho^r, by any law recognized among I civil governmen s, could there be any penalty I imposed upon them, except what the lav/ im- I posed, In the face of the plain provisions of the I Constitution, which forbade attainder and tr I ymt facto puuishment I Upon what princiule | could they be deprived of their righi to a trial I by law ? This was n right acquired by a I struggle of hundreds ol years. A man who I was charged with aiding the rebellion was pre- I fumed to be lunoceut iiutil proven guilty The I question of his gmlt was the first thing to be I determined. The Constitution declared that I this must be ascertained by due process of law. I How was this to be done in t .e District ot Co- I lumbia f Was it by a grand |ury I And how I was the judge to impose the sentence I Ne j punishment could be indicted unless there I was a law in existence before the offence was I ivmmttted. Other wise it would exceed all the I tyrannies ever perpetrated. j Several amendments were offered and with- I drawn Mr San Is bury said if it was possible tomafee I be bill good in every respect it was by this | amendment. But he wonld never vote for I negro suffrage here or elsewhere. They had I now in this District about 35,''<<0 negroee. If J this bill was passed it would indeed be the j negro's paradise. Soon all publie offices I would be tilled by negroes. They would have I a flood of them hsre from all parts of the coun- ] try. The amendment w as lost by a vote ol tony- I one to one. >1 r. Hrown. when his name was called, said I that he w as opposed ;o any educatioual test, I and for that reason ne wonld vote against the I amendment. Mr. Hendricks moved to reconsider the vole I on the amendment ef the Senator lrom Maine; I winch was agreed to. Mr. Cowan moved to strike from the section I the word ' male.'' lie said he did uot know I any reason why black men should uot vo e. I except tnat the white man did not wish it. It I the otange. however, was to be made, he I should Advocate the extension of suffrage to I females also He would very much prefer I to allow females to vote than negroes. He I would never consent to allow females who I paid taxes to be disfranchised, and he would I like to hear any reason for it. A woman was I subject to all ibe laws, yet had no represen- I tation. Pending the amendmentMr. Cowau the I Senate adjourned. Horse.? Yesterday afternoon? ! The Speaker announced the appointment of I Messrs. Maynard. of Tenn : McClnrg, of Mo.: I Mercnr, of Pa.: Washburn, of Ind.; Cbanler, I of N. Y.: as the Select Committee on Southern I Railroads.

Mr. ScheiM k moved that the seventeenth sec- I 1 tion of the act making appropriations for sun- J dry civil expenses of the Government aud for other purpo?es be so amended that no Senator or Representative in Congress, who shall have I been a member of the next preceding Congress. I shall receise amy allowance or mileage for I ; traveling to the place of meeting to attend the I ' additional session provided for in the foregoing section. The amendment ra? agreea to. Mr Schenck thought, from the disposition of I j the House in reference to this m alter, that no I further amendmentstothe bill were necessary; I ' aud he therefore demanded the previous qnes- I tion, bnt withdrew the demand temporarily to I allow an additional amendment to be offered I in the loi-m of an additional section, as fol- I lows: He it further enncte>l, That the regulations of I ! the several States now represented in Con- I grees, which have not held elections for Rep- I ' resent&tives in the Fortieth Congress, to as- I ] semble on the 4tb of March, 1MS7. are hereby so j 1 changed and altered as to empower the Gov- I I ernors of the States to fix a dav prior to March | 4, IHfT, for the election of such Representative?, I . aud to make all necessary regulations for the 1 ; election of such Representatives: which regu- I 1 lations shall conform, except as to time, as I nearly as possible to the existing State regula- J ttons,"or such regulations as mar be prescribed I ' to State Eegislatnre-where the same may be iu I ' ie--ion J'rori-t 1, That if sn any case the Got- I 1 error of any S^ate. or the L?egi-iatnre thereof I ' when in session, shall deem it expedient to j held such e!e-tion prior to the 4th of March, I ! |s?7, as aforesaid, then this act shall not oper- I ate to invalidate the election when held in tic- I \ cordance with the State law. ' Mr Washburne (III ) suggested that the bill I as amended had better tlx the hour of the davs I at which each Congress should first meet, at I 13 o'clock noon, on the 4th ot March Mr. Schenck accepted the suggestion, and I ' again demanded tie previous question; which I whs *eronded.
