The object of the meeting was that orphans of color* a soldiers should participate in the aavan'ages of the appropriations marie by the State tor the maintenance and educanon of soldiers1 orphan? In the Georgia Legislature yesterday, H. VJohnson was elected U. S. Senator on the first ballot. Mr Hutler proposed in the Senate a memorial to Congress, also a resolution appointing commissioners to proceed to Washiugtou to ascertain what terms Georgia ivould be admitted to ber former status in tne Union. Neither were acted upon. The rooms of the Koberts Fenian headquarters in New York are animated, aud the rooms and passages are filled with oases of breech-loaders.which are soon'o bs distributed to regimeuts. Koberts is makiug extensive preparations for a formidable movement against Canada. The veterans of the war of Wl'i are malting efforts to procure from Congress the pas*tg* of such a law as will secure them from want.

Thk I-khian Trials ?The court for the trial ol the Fenians, met at Sweetsbnrg, C. K.. yestrrgay. Mr Kamsay said lie was instructed by the Attorney General to enter a nolle pro-ei/ni iu twenty-one of the ludictmenu alleging offenses prior to June Mb. This in effect withdraws the indictment against Crawford, Rosr *r*-, Heardon. Howard, McGregor, Morrill, and Smith, as also against seven other Hritish subjects. There remain inrtber indictments (two against each prisoner,) charging offenses as committed ou ibe ftth of .1 nly by the prisoners Mclionald, Madden, Craw ley, <i wens, Carroll, GiMigan. and Holmes. Mr. L>ool<n said he hud to ask the court that the prisoners, with reference to whom the Crown wished to enter a nolleprotff/Hi, be discharged by a verdict. Mr. Kamsay.?That cannot be done w'len a voile pv eqmi is entered Mr Devlin faid he wished to argue that point. He concluded by-ta' ng that the law under which these men were to have been tried had be<?n sent to Washington, and commands had come from Washmeton that the course should be taken which was now intimated by the prosecution. Mr Ramsay protected apain-<t such remarkbeing made. No such commands had come to him. Jndite Johnson said he had heard nothing denying the right ol the court to enter a &>//' J rot. C<mn?e| i)i?-a moved tl.at Crawford be ?e?at liberty, but the Court decided rh:it he miirh' he held frr trial for other charge* Madden was placed on trit?l The } risoners as to w hom a nolle pro*. wn? entered to the indictment previously fo' ttd ln?y still be tried for riot and tumult. As l*POP.TA?T liECIMION.?A t?st case bus been recently adjudicated in Tennessee. Mr. A. F. Ridley applied lor a writ ot mandarins to compel the Register of his county to register h a name. The Register alleged rhat. i.nder the art of the legislature commonly known as the Franchise act, the relator wais pot a legal voter, and not entitled to registry. The court, n? an elaborate opinion, held, tirst Ifca the clans-e in the schednle to the Con-titu tienal Amendment declaring "the qualifications ot voters and the limitation of elective franchise may be determined by the General Assembly which shall first assemble under the amended Constitution.'' from which the legisiatvre pretended to derive its powei lor the Franchise act?did not conler, when properly construed, any power to disfranchise those already citizens, but only to extend at its discretiou the privileges of citizenship to the recently liberated blacks. Second, that by ihe exclusion of filteeu legally elected and qualified members of the House of Representatives. and of two members of the Senate, for the insufficient reason that these persons had resigned tbeir seats at the previous session, and had thereby designedly Isft the legislature witbeut a quorum, the legislature lost its character, forfeited it* powers, and wasuot, at the time of ibe passage of this act, a general assembly, within the meaning of theorganic law of Tennessee From Mr.JC.ico.?The New Vork Herald's Brownsville special ?ays an official order has | been published releasing Ortega and party, now at Brazo?, from arrest. Gen. Sedgwick has been placed under arrest,and Brevet Brig. Gen. Brown has been assigned to the command of the sub-district of the Rio Grande. Gen. Sheridan returned troia the Rio Grande to New Otleans ou the St. Mary. Canales, instead ot being arrested, is to be put in command of the troops under Escobedo, and is to leave for the Interior. Cortinas is to commaud in Matamoras. G?n. Escobedo and Gen. Sberie:an had an interview in Browusville, a'ter he bad received a visit from the staff officer- of the latter. Both papers in Brownsville defend and prai?e Gen. Sedgwick's course. The 1'ueblo Liberal of the l*Jth of November says ibe French bad evacuated San Luis Potosi. but Mejia remained with 1,IMJ0 nieu. 1'ne Liberals were home ten leagues distant.

I hoped that an officer might have been sent out in the Nova Scotiau, wblch sails to-morlow, in which case #*# would have aided buu in the arrest of Snrratt. The *#* says tnat Snrratt manifested no signs ot penitence, but Viatilied bis action, and was bold and d<-tlant when speaking of the assassination. As an illustration be teld me that Surratt remarked repeatedly that he only desired to live two years longer, in which time he would serve President Johnson as Booth did Mr. Lincoln * * * -aid that he felt it his duty to give me this information. for he regarded Snrratt as a desperate wietcb. aud an enemy to society, who should be apprehended and brought to justice. The sworn statement of the party wbo gave the information leading to Surratt'i arrest is ah follows: "K?mk. July lo, ih>?>?1, ' * * , a native ot Canada. British America. aged :15. do swear and declare under oath, that about Six mouths previous to tb*' assassraatiou of President Abraham Lincoln, 1 was living in Maryland, at a small village failed Kllangov.au, or Little Texas, about twenty-five or thirty miles from Baltimore, where 1 was engaged as tea'her for a period of about live months. 1 th-'reand then got acquainted with Lewis J. Wi<*chmann and John H. Surratt. Who came to that locality to pay a visit to the parish priest. At that first interview a great deal wa? said about the war and slavery; the sentimeu's ex tressed by these two individuals being more than strongly secessionists In the course ol the couversaiion, I remember Surratt to have -aid that President Lincoln would certainly pay for all the men that were slain during the war Ahout a month after 1 removed to Washington at the instigation ot Wiechmann, aud got a situation as tutor * * H % w here he was himself engaged. Snrratt vis ted us weekly, and once He offered to ?end me soutb: but 1 declined. I did not remain more than a month at Washington, not being able to agree with Wiechmann, and enlisted in the arm\ of the North, as stated in my lii *t statement In writing to < 5en?iai Km*. 1 have met Snrratt here In Italy, at a small town called Yelletri. He i* now known under the iiameof John Watson. 1 recognised him be. fore he made himself kuown to me, au<l told | him prtva'Hy, ?-Yon are John Surratt. tbe i per-oii I b:<ve known In Maryland." He ac- I knowledged he was. and begged ot me to keep the tiling -ecret. Alter some conversation. we spoke o: the unfortunate affair ot the a.-sas.-i- I nation ol President Lincoln, and these were i his words: "liamn the Yankees, tbey have J killed my mother; but I have done them as much harm as I could. We have killed Lincoln, the nigger s friend." He'len said, speaking of his mother, "Had it not been for me and that coward Wiechmann. my mother would be living yet. It was i'ear male him speak. Had be kept his tongue there was bo danger for htm: but it I ever return to America, or meet bim elsewhere, 1 shall kill htm." He then said he was in the secret service ot the Soutb. Aud Wiechmann. who was in some department there, used to steal copies ol tbe d**patches and forward them t? him, and thence to Richmond. Speakiogof themnrder. be said they had acted under the order* of men who are uot yet known, some of whom are still is New- York, and others in Loudon. 1 am aware tbat money is sent to him yet from London. " When 1 left Canada." he said. ' I had but nttie money, but 1 bad a letter for a par'y In London. 1 was in disguise with dyed hair and false beard; that party sent me to a hotel, where be told me to remain till I would bear from him. ' Aiw a few weeks he came and proposed to me to go to Spain, but I declined, and asked to go to Paris; he gave me jLTii, with a letter ot introduction to a party there, who sent him here to Home, where he joined the zouaves. He says he can get money in Home at any time. 1 believe he is protected bv me clergy, and that themurder la the result oi a deep la'id plot, not only against the life of President Lincoln, but against tbe existence of the Henubllc. as we are aware that priesthood and" royalty are and always have been opposed to liberty. That such men as Snrratt, Booth, Wlecbmaun, and others, should, ot their own accord, plan and execute the infernal plot which resulted in tbe death of President Liucoln. is impossible. There are others behind tbe curuun who have pulled tbe strings to make these scoundrels act. 1 have also asked him if he kuew Jefferson Davis, he said no, bnt that he iiad acted under the instructions of persons under bis immediate orders. Being askea if Jefferson lia\lsbad any thing to do with the assays i nation he said, ' I <un not print/to tell you." My impression is that he biougbt the order from Richmond, aa he waj in the habit of going there weekly. He must have bnoed the others lo doit, for when ttie event took place be told me fie was ia New Yerk, prepared to flv as soon as the deed was done. He says be does not regret w hat has laken place, and that he will visit New York in a year or two, as there Is a heavy shipping firm there who had much to do w ith the Soutb, and he is surprised that tbey have not been suspected. This is tbe exact trutbof what I know about Surratt. More 1 could not learn, being atraid to awaken his suspicions. And further I do not say. ##*##* The following l? the report of the Commander of the detachment sent to arrest Surratt, concerning bis escape: "fkkoii, November fi.?My Colonel: 1 regret to itnnonnce to you that, notwithstanding all my piecautious, 1. learu Watsou has succeeded in escaping. To carry out the orders recei\ed, I had sent Sergeant Halyerid aud six men to Tresulte, where this zouave was on detachment. Thev did not And him there, tor en that day Wateon had asked leave to go to Feroll. I charged the corporal or the third company, Yanderstroeten, to take him and turn Dim over to the post corporal, W tirrin, to whom 1 had already given all ray lustructious on this snbject. ?A II the measnres ordered w^re carried out from point to point; two sentinels with loaded arms were placed, one at the very door of kis prison, witb orders to prevent any commaulcation of the prisoner with persou-s outside, ud the other at the door of the barrack The prison, the doors and windows, Ac., bad b-en inspected in the minutest details by the locksmith of the commune. There was, ther*ior#. tiotb'.ng to lear ill that quarter. All passed off well until th?* morning at fonr o'clock Then the prisoner waa awakened, who ro*e, put on his gaiters, anJ took his c ?tte# with a calmness and phlegm quite Kagli*b. The gate ol the prison opens on a platform which overlooks the Country: a balustrade prevents promenarter^ from tumbling on the rocks, situate at least thirty-tlve lee: below ibe windows of tbe prison. I'eside the rate of this nri<oi are sitnao 1?ne tirivles of the bairsck. Wa*.-*'m asked |s?rrtii*? sion to halt there.

John H Surratt, shoald *e brought directly to tbe city of Washington, and delivered to the custody ot the marshal of the District ot Columbia, without stopping ai any in'erniediate port either in this country or elsewhere." CONGRESSIONAL. Sknatb?Yesterday afternoon, the bill to regulate suffrage ta the District of Columbia being nnder consideration ? Mr Cowan advocated his amendment to strikeout tbe word -male " He would support female tuft rage to counterbalance negro suffrage. Jie assured the Senate that he wae re'ious on this question. He knew that negro suffrage would be carried, but h. wished to add to it ail proper safeguards. Mr. Morrill said that nobody supposed the Senator was sincere in a single sentence. He had succeeded in beit.g amnsing. but he <je. nied that be bad succeeded in convincing anybody. Mr. Cowan a-ked. bow could tne Senator from Maine say that he was not seriou* ' He b?d not been indoctrinated in the same tinical school?eating persimmons. He had never yielded to tbe Senator's Radicalism, a* lie seemed to think He thought if any man had Riven evidence of bis sincerity in Conservatism he had. He thought he stood free not only from any imputation of interest, bn' of dishonor. Mr. Morrill had merely intended to welcome the gentleman into their ranks 011 bis own arguments Mr. Cowan did not allow any Senator to m?ke his theories or arguments. He bad saia that it there was an onward movement as wa? inevitable, he would like to guide it arigot. He was not a vain or proud man. but he would rather be deprived of the right of suffrage than to cringe to anybody or anything excep' by durrK. r Mr. Wade said he had already given his views on the subiect ot suffrage. He thought tliat any person competent to manage his own affairs ought to participate in tbe Government. Mr. Yates would endorse substantially ali that the Senator from (Jhso hrtd said. But 'hey had another matt.-r on hand. The Senator from Penusylvania might as well bow his head and let tbe people rule this land. Mr. Wilton was opposed to connecting these two questions. He regretted that the Sena or from Pennsylvania [Mr. Cowan] had not read the s)?eechea delivered at those conventions before he came to the Senate. He would then have made a record of which he could b? proud. He himself had bad the conviction that our legislation would be better it the women vote than it was now. and he was more firmly convinced of it than ever. But it should not be connected with this question Mr. Johnson said that with perhaps the ex. ception of New Jersey this right had never been granted elsewhere. He thought if he question was submitted to the ladles they would refuse to accept it, remembering tluit citizens were required to take up arms for the delfuce ot the country. He read from a letter written in I7?t>, by the elder Adams, in regard to suffrage: saying that women were hired more particularly for domestic cares, being Uio delicately constituted lor the tars*- ofState, and that youths under tweu'y-one would demand the sam?- right if granted to them Mr. Frelinghuvseu said, in auswer to Mr. Johnson, that there was a time in New Jersev when women could vote ou local matters: nut that time was long past. Pending the consideration of the amendment of Mr Cowan, the Senate adjourned. Horp*?Yesterday afternoon Mr Williams bill to regulate appointment* and removal from oflice being under considerationMr Hale, (N. V.) from the Comamtee ?n Retrenchment, reported a bill, which, under the instructions of that c?mmiue?, he offered a* a substitute tor the bill under di&cussioti. Mr. Kasson (low a) explained the amendment previously offered by him to the origin*! bill. That bill as it stood covered by its terms removals in the army and navy, and he moved to amend by confining Its operation to the civil service. After some discussion, in which Messrs. Kasson, Garfield, and Koust-eau took part, Mr Kasson moved the previous ?me?tion on his amendment. Mr Stevens offered a modification of the amendment previously offered ov him providing that every person who has been or shail be hereafter noraii ated to the Senate for office, and who shall lail to receive <be advioe and consent of tbe Senate thereto, shall be incapable ol holding any executive office under'be I nited States fer tbe term of one year after such rejection, unless two thirds of the Senate shall relieve him from such disability. Mr. Kasson renewed his demand for the previous question ; which was seconded, and under the operation of the previous question bis amendment was agieert to. Two other verbal amendments offered by him were also agreed to Mr. Kasson offered an additional amendm?nt exempting from the operations of tbe bill the first assistants ot the heads of departments* which he advocated upon the groand that the first assistant of the bead of a department is generally or always a confidential officer The amendment was agreed to. Mr. Donnelly (Minn.) offered an amendment providing that in cases where appointment? "nave been made by the President, but the parties so appointed have not yet been confirmed by the Senate nor entered upon the discharge ot their duties, the present eccupant of the office thall continue to hold tbe office until bis successor shall have been appointed and confirmed by the Senate: which was lost. tin motion of Mr. Hale (R. V ) an amendment was adopted making it the duty of the President to report the facts of any suspension or appointment made by him to the Senate in twenty days Instead et ten. Also, an amendment providing that the emoluments of such office shall belong during the term of the suspension to him who temporarily performs the duties of it. Mr. Stevens advocated Lis amendment, it was well known, he i>ajd. that some of tbe meanest men that God could ever have overlooked lu making mankind [laughter] had been appointed to office by the President during the recess. They would, ot course, be rejected by the Senate: but unless some such law as he proposed was made, the President woald probably appoint tb?m to other offices for wbicb they would be equally unfit, and where they would be equally obnoxious to the people. Mr. Hale (N. Y.) remarked that the conversion of the gentleman from Pennsylvania to conservatism was quite recent, and that, like all neophytes, he seemed determined to go extremes. If bis amendment should pass, it would give tbe President greater power than he bad ever before had or claimed. He would have only to nominate a person to an office for which he was so unfit that the Senate would decline to confirm the nomination, in order to disqualify the nominee for one year alter his rejection. Sn ppose. for instance, that the Pres. dent should nomiuate the gentleman from Pennsylvania himself to some office for which tbe Senate could not confirm him?say com mander-in-chief of the army? the geutlemau would be rei.dered incapable of holding any public office lor one year after his rejection; i'i,>1 then how sorry tbe friends of the gentleman in the House would all be [ Laughter.] The amendment was rejected?yeas IT nays I'-S.
