Sk>at?.?The Uhiitr laid before the Senate a communication from tbe Secretary of War. iu response to the resolution of the 61b instant, iu regard to tbs proceedings of tbe commission appointed to audit claims of owners ot slaves enlisted or drafted into the Cnited State* service. Keterred to tbe Committee on Military Affairs. Mr. Suinner presented the proceedings of tbe unconditional Union mass meeting at Norfolk, composed of citizens without regard to color, a*kin* Congress to ignore tbe present State government of Virginia, and establish a territorial government under Judge Underwood, and a.?ked that It be referred to the Committee on Keconstrnction. Mr. Saulsbury objected to tbe reception of tbe paper, ou the ground that it was simply the proceedings of a public meeting, and not in tbe form of a petition. He asked for its non-reception . on ibe ground of a precedent already establisbed by the Senate in declining to receive such papers Tbe Cnair pnt tbe question to the Senate, when it was decided to receive the paper. Mr. Wade presented the petition of citizens ot Alexandria, praying for the retrocession of tbat county to tbe District of Columbia, on tbe ground tbat no protection can be obtaiaed under the laws of Virginia. Laid ou the table. Mr Sumner Introduced a bill to prevent and punish fraudulent representations inducing emigration to foreign countries, which is intended to prevent colored persons from being enticed to foreign countries, where they will he treated as coolies. Mr. Morrill introduced a bill to amend the act to repeal, alter, or amend the charter of the cny of Washmgtou. Referred to Committee on District Affairs. On motion of Mr. Wilson.it was resolved that tbe Secretary of War b? requested to communicate to tbe Senate the reports of iue Assist, ant Commissioners of tbe i reed men's Bureau, detailing tbe operations of tae Bureau in the late slave States. The bill to rej?eal the l:jth section of the act to suppress insurrection. <Vc? was takeu up ou motion of Mr. Trumbull. Mr. Johnson inquired whether tbe object of ; tbe bill was to take from the President that \ power which tbe Cotstltution explicitly conferred npon hiru. Mr. Trumbull replied that the pardoning power under tbe Constitution would remalu just as it was. The repeal of tbU section only proposed to take from him the power to issue a general proclamation of amnesty. Under : ibis clause 40ti,60.i acres of land had already I been restored 10 rebels, and many of thenu in- . stead ot appreciating tbis clemency, were more defiant and disloyal than ever. It was not supposed that any necessity would arise in the 1 future for a general amnesty, and it was therefore proper to preclude the President from issuing it. Mr. John>cn said the Constitution gave the President the most unlimited power over the whole matter, and a< tbe clause in question did not add one iota to bis power, neither coald its repeal take any from bim. General Wash- ; ington has issued a general amnesty to tbe par- 1 Mciptinte in the Whisk) insurrection, and no 1 question bad ever been raised of his power 10 do it.
