Although many of the chief necessaries o' life have been aomewhat rednced in price recently, yet the opinion still prevails that owng to the extortion of monopolists many articlfs ars sull mnch higher than they ought to be. A great ronny remedies have been proposed. and co-operative companies formed in N*w York, Baltimore, Troy, and other cities. : We have no., heard anything as to the success ot the N?w York anil Baltimore Associations: but cannot see what benefit tne co-operative grocery in Troy is to stockholders as we learn ' that it does not sell at a less rate than mer- j cbants who deal for cash. Notwithstanding ' this, the sales for the last six months were S*7,Wi*, and for the six months preceding | *-!3.UV; but very little less than that of the largest aiid best established retail groceries. Tne co-operation foundry in the same city s^ems to be a great success, as tne capital In- ( vested in the buildings, ground and touts, is about < , all paid up. and tbey now inventory property between and $:}i.inmi. | Tbiriy-:wo moulders are employed and from 1 to 1,!W0 stores cast per month. All the m< u lu this foundry, who can. work by the I piece, and we are told that the average wages ot tbeir workmen are about S3o per week, avernging abont a* hours per day in the summer. In the winter thtir wages become less per day. Tftis sort of co operation will probably be 1 tuund in practice more advantageous than combinations to cheapr-n meat,coal, groceries, | Ac , which although they teem to succeed in j * eglar.d, do not tor some reason thrive so well , bere In England there are six hundred and 1 ? ITovident Societies,*' established ' on the co-operative plan, and possessing an aggregate capital of nearly four million-* of ' dollars in American money?x7?l,?13. Gro- ' cents, meat, shoes, clothing, coal, flour, and j 'vm farriery, are included iu the plan upon < which these societies operate. The mode of dividing profits varies in the different socie- I tier, but the general rule is to set aside certain proportions for interest on paid-up shares, dividends to members, depreciation fund, re- ! serve fund. Ac. They all appear to be vtry ' economically conducted. Tne accounts are ' in the great majority of caaes audited by mem- > bers, sometimes assisted by a prwfes ;ionaJ ac- I rouutant. Nearly every society throughout ; the list exhibits a balance In band, and the ] assets are in almost every instance largely in , excess ot the liabilities. It strikes us that the surer plan tor house- 1 keepers here would be to practice rigid economy. and endeavor, which almofct the poorest ' can do, to lay aside a small reserve fund* ? which will enable them to bny at those seasons i ' when the necessaries of life are cheapest, and ' in such quantities as to make a saving. The ! | vast difference between bnyiag in large and fn J small quantities is evident on the least reflection It is a eunons fact that for a given quan- ' tity of coal, flour or other staple in daily use- J the poor man pavs a higher price than the rich. * The smaller the quantities purchased at a time, j the higher is the price paid. When it is net j practicable tor one housekeeper to buy In large , quantities a number of families can club to- j < gether and purchase at the cheapest stores, wholesale, thus saving themselves the profits [ mace by one or more intermediate dealer*. > NEGRO WHIPPING IN NORTH CAROLINA. ? A communication has been received at the j ] Freedmen'a Bureau from an officer at Raleigh i N o., calling the attention of the Bureau to the whipping of negToes by the civil authorities i f ostensibly as a punishment for petty crime*, ] but in fack forth* purpose ot disqualifylag 1 them from using the electiv* franchise under j the laws of North Carolina, should that right i be granted to them by the law of th* land. It r is stated that this practice Is carried on in many I counties in the Stale, over sixty having been "whipped 1*1 one county during a recent session of the court. A conversation was orer- ] beard recently at the State House, between aeveral members of the Legislature, when one aaid "We are licking them in our part of the < State, and if we keep on we can lick them all by next year, and none of them can vote."

A paragraph having lately appeared in a morning cotemporary, appealing to tbe c.tizens of Washington and Georgetown to aid in furnishing material for a dinner to the suffering poor of Arlington Tillage, on Saturday, tbe 5th instant, the following extract* from late official correspondence are published to show tbat the freedmen at Arlington are not suffer* in*, but are well cared for: On the 3d instant (yesterday) Brevet Brig, Gen. Samuel Thomas, Acting Assistant Commissioner. addressed instructions to Brevet ('apt. G. N. Clark, Acting Assistant Inspector General District of Columbia, saying: "My attention has oeen called to a oircular, published in the Chronicle, calling upon the benevolent for donations of food and clotbiug for tbesuOerlng freedmen of Arlington village, Va. It ?s calculated t?make the impression on the public mind that many aged and Infirm colored people of that village are really in a deplorable condition. An appropriation to furnish these people with all substantial necessary articles of food and clotbing was made last summer by Congress. It is tbe duty of tbis office to see tbat all who are unable to care for tbemeelvee have their actual wants supplied lrom thin fond. You will proceed to Arlington village and make a careful inspectlon of and a written report on the condition of all classes of freedmen residing there, with especial reference to their wants as set forth in tbe enclosed article and circular from the Chronicle of the 3d inst." Captain Clarke reports yesterday, tbat be made a thorough inspection of the condition of the defendants freed people, at Arlington Village. v a., and aaya: 'There are one hundred and ninety-two (192) dependents; eighty-three (83) msn and one hundred sad nine (109) women. Eacb person (except in a few cases where families are together) has a separate bed. I examined ninety, one (91) beds without selection, with reterence to the amount and cleanliness of the clotbing.

It con. slstedof well-cooked fresh beef, cort bread, and beef sonp, containing rice and potatoes. The quantity was, in my opinion, sufficient for any one. In rooking, the diet table for hospitals is followed as nearly as practicable Breakfast nenally consists of flsh .?r meat bread, tea. coffee, sngar and milk.

In one a man ad no socks, in the other bnt a naar pair of shoes; bnt both these w?nta would have been promptly supplied on application to the matron or superintendent If there have been other cases of sufTerinc which 1 doubt, they were partly accidental The Superintendent has only to make reaulsition for whatever articles are necessarv for theM people to procure them. 1 do not And that be has failed la bis duty In this regard I can. therefore, perceive no necessity for such an appeal ?othe benevolent, ner for snob an exercise of generosity as is enjetned therein The Government provided a Christmas dinner for these people, and I heartily approve Che plan proposed, lo give tbem another in honor of the New Year; bat 1 do not believe It right to make that an occasion to ask for them as suffering poor," wbich ther are not 10 the sense conveyed in tbe appeal?from benevolent people, some of whom, as in the in ?tj?n"? of the rood rhilndelpbta vrtd -<w, rtre litt.e nMe ?o afford it, con'ribtiiions of articles \?

Crisptno t la Comnrt, the new opera of tbe brothers Ricci, was given by the Italian (ipera Troupe at the National Theater, last night, to a thin, but rather fashionable audience.

Referred to Committee on Finance Also, aiz petitions from railroad presidents, as-King a reduction of tbe duty on railroad iron. Mr. Cattail presented a petition from art-sts of Philadelphia, asking some protection for art. Referred to thetCommittee on Finance Mr. Howard meved that the Committee oa Foreign Relations be requested to inquire into tbe relations now existing between France and the Republic of Mexico, Ac., aa to the power of Maximilian to maintain himself if the French troops are withdrawn. Ac , and tbat they be authorized to send tor persons and papers, Ac. The bill repealing the thirteenth section of the act to suppress insurrection and punish treason and rebellion was taken up, tbe question being on the amendment of Mr. Saulsbury, to repeal the entire act. Mr.Jobnson said that regarding the section which it was proposed to repeal, as giving no additional power to the President, he did not propose to address his remarks to it. The opinions of the members of the Constitutional Convention, and their discussions on tbe limit of tbe President's pardoning power were then touched upon by Mr. J. The reault of their deliberations waa that tbe pardoning power should be vested in the President alone. It could not be conferred upon two departments of the Government, but upon one, and that exclusively. The only power of Congress, as has been decided over and over again, is the lecialatiTo power, tbe power to repeal the law, tbe infringement of whose provision has made the crime. The power of the President to pardon Is granted in terms as comprehensive as the English language wilt permit. How he ia to pardt n and when he U to pardon rests with him. The Senator from Illinois (Mr Trumbull) had said the other day that the section proposed to be repealed gave the President the power to issue a general pardon by proclamation. The usnt.l mode had been to pardon specifically each offender In England general pardons had been granted by proclamation inclading all parties concerned in insurrection. In pursuance of bis argument that the section conferred no additional power on the President, Mr. J. maintained that there had been no neceeauy for its passage, and consequently there could now t>? none for its repeal. In reference to the implied power of the President to pardon,the chairman of the Judiciary Committee (Trumbull) in presenting a petition the other day hai assumed the jurisdiction of Congreee over the subject of i pardons in the la'e insurrectionary States, but the clause on which the Senator bad relied for hut authority intended no auch operation as bad so been maintained by ali the commentators on tbe Constitution. His friead, he thought, was mistaken on another point. In the first section of tbe first article of tbe Constitution it ib expressly stated that such powers are conferred on Congress as are therein explicitly named. In the first section of tbe third article it is stated that the powers conferred on the President areexecntive, and In all the decisions and commentations which have since been made it bas been assumed tbat only such powers cau be exercised as are explicitly delegated. Tbe Constitution was mads for war as well as for peace, as bad been decided by tbe highest tribunal of the land. It mlgnt as well be contended that the judiciary el the United States obtained power independent of the Conatitn Hon through necessity, as that the President and Congress maintained it. He (Mr. J.) had advised the Executive to issne a general proclamation of amnesty, and had endeavored so fai as he was able, to bring | it about; but tbe Executive had not seen proper to do so. Some of the first jurists of the country, many of them members of the Republican party, and seme of the best jurists or England, bad expressed tbe opinion that the moment belligerent rights were granted, the commission of treason was impossible. If this point were brongbt before the Supreme Court what their decision would be could not say, but on tbe otber point tbe right of a State to secede, be did not doubt for one instant that it would decide tbat there waa no right. Ths very history of me bygone conspiracy proved such a tbing to be impossible. No proclamation of amnesty had been iasued, and no trials for treason bad taken place. The first was due to tbe President, the latter was not bis fault. A man of delicate frame was now held immersed in prison, who bad been called to preside over their destinies by six millions of people. If this thing had happened in nay ether country, It would have been described as an act of extreme cruelty. Hr. Howard said tbat the person to whom the Senator bad alladed, Jefferson Davis, was capture as a prisoner of war, and now held as such, and was it not true that be had been refused to be delivered ap for trial. Mr. Johnson said If be was a prisoner of war be could not be tried for treason. The President had, however, expressed his willingness to give htm up for trial. Mr Howard said the opinion of the law officer of Mr. Johneon had prevented the trial from taking place. > Mr. Johnson said be was ready to he delivered up to the Marshal of the Court authorized to try him. Tbe prisoner bad petitioned tor a trial, but tbe Court in whose circuit he was. refused to receive blm, on tbe ground that be could not be held la eastody. It had also been said that the Chief Justice eonld not preside because Congress bad changed tbe circuit Some further discussion ensued between Messrs. Johnson and Howard. Mr. Johnson said no matter whoee fault it was, It was a blot on American civilization tbat tbelr prisoner was retained, and if td hts delicate state he sbonld die the nation would be responsible for his death. Had he (Mr. J.) been President be ehould have paroled him long since. Hocen ?
