Hon. Horace Greeley, a member of tha Hornm it tee, s in Waohingion, bat was engagea in h-cturing. On calling the meeting to order Governor Ward said j We have met under circumstuires which require, in their fullest development, tae qu allure which have made the Republican party what it is? patriotiam and fidelity to tu convictions and correctness in their aapport. Entrusted with the interrst of that organization by the National Convention of 1-6$, we are met for council and action in i reference to the present condition of afturs. I The faithlessness of the President to the pnaetplee and policy of the party which elected Mm ba< rendered more difficult the workot I restoring the union on a basis of loyalty and 1 freedom, bnt tfcore who have conauered armed troveon wiH prove equal to any remaining i danc?r Since we last assembled the > loyal States have attested anew their adherence o tbe Bepubl can creed, and tneir unwavering Determination to bmld tbe future of the nation on the enduring basis of jusMce, humanity and freedom. The fear.* ot the timid and the doubt* of tbe hesitating h<ive given way before tb*t uprising of the people which hns characterize*! the receut elections. Tbe result* wh'ch these political con*est& have produced have proved tbe wisdom of Obitgress in reiving upou tbe intelligence and patriotism cf tbe loyal people of the country. The plan of reconstruction so wisely and generI onsly adopted bv Congress has secured discipline in onr ranks, unity in onr councils and ! nr.ight in onr exertion*. Could tbe pending j Constitutional Amendment be ratified, it | wonld, in my judgment, best satisfy the nation. and best secure (be fruits of that great natioual victory w hich culminated in tbe destruction of tbe rel ellici . and yet 1 bear in mind 'be conviction that tbe right of suffrage should not depend upon the accidenUot color or race. In tbe final settlement of these questions 1 am lonU-nt to rely upon the action of the present and the successive Congress, in which are contained so much of the wisdom and experience of the nation. It remain for us to disseminate truth, to preserve the unity of onr great party, and on the basis of our principles to organize victory. We bold the vantage ground which right confers, and neither the power of tbe President nor the dictates of courts can stay the progress of those eternal truths which are written in revelation and inscribed on tbe hearts ot tbe good and true, and ever illuminating the onward progress of our race. The addreas was received with much favor by tbe committee. There was a general and free conversation in relation to the condition of the country, and the measures which would best secure the fruits of victory and peace. During the meeting Governor Ward received a telegram from Trenton announcing that Hon. Frederick T. Fielingbnysen had received the Republican caucus nomination for Senator by a vote of lio to 10. An adjourned meeting of the committee will take place tomorrow. jr^=? M16BIONABY AN Ml VEBBABY. WI8LII CBAPKIiTTorner Ith and F its. SUNDAY. Jan. .0 lAif 11 a. m. 8'rmon by Bev. J. McOlntoch, D D.

There is a report afloat on the Avenue thi? afternoon that Dudly Kleld, brother of Cyrus Field, has been appointed Minisur to England. Psrsonal ? Hon. B. G Harris, of Maryland, bu been nbseut from his seat in Congress in consequence of the illness of Mrs Harris. Sbe is now recovering, aud Mr. Harris will return to his seat this week. 1>tbr?al rkvxmub.?Tbe receipts from this source to-day were $3(?sW7 *4 CONGRESSIONAL. Friday, January 14. Srwat*.?The Chair presented a communication from (Governor Hramlett, of Kentucky, announcing the refection by the legislature ol thai State of the constitutional amendment. Lai<t on the table. Mr. Wilson presented thirteen petitions from officers or ths army for increase of pay. Referred to the Committee on Military Affairs. Mr. Wilson presented petitions asking that the present system for exterminating the negro race be discontinued, and measures be adopted for colonization. Referred to the Committee on Military Affairs. Mr. Sumner presented the memorial of the Colored National Union League, lately in session in this city, asking impartial suffrage and equality before the law in all the rebel Mates. Referred to the Committee on Reconstruction. Mr. Conness presented a petition from all the army officers on the Pacific coast, complaining of the insufficiency of their pay, which they ask shall hereafter be paid in gold or increased. Referred to the Committee on Mili'ary Affairs. Mr. Sumner moved that the President of the United States be requested te communicate to tbe Senate, if not incompatible with the pubhe interest, any correspondence which has tsken plaoe bet ween the Seeretarjr of State and J. Lathrop Motley, U. S. Minisur to the Court of Vienna, relative to the resignation of the latter. Mr. Buckalsw objecting, the resolution went over. Mr. Wilson, from the Committee on Military Affairs, reported the Honse bill to establish and protect national cemeteries; which was read and laid over. Mr. Saulsbury moved to take up the resolu[ tion introduced by htm calling on the heads of departments for statement of number of clerks removed in the departments from March 4, ls6l. to March 4, H65. The motion to lake up was disagreed to. The bill toautheriKtt theextenaion, construction and use of a lateral branch of the Baltimore and Potomac railroad into and within the District of Columbia was taken np. and discussed until the expiration of the morning hour. iThe unfinished business, being the bill to regulate the tenure of office, was then taken up, the question being on the amendment of Mx. Sumner. Mr. Sumner, being entitled to the floor, alluded to the fact of his having been called to order yesterday ou account of certain language need towards the President. A little more than one year since he had characterized a certain message of the President, describing the condition of affairs at the South as bright and promising, as a whitewashing message. Certain Seaators bad taken him to task then, but time had proved him to be light. That message was a whitewashing meessage. Time would prove him right arain Now that the slave drivers bad been driven from this cham* ber, he claimed, and insisted upon the privilege of an American Senator to be allowed the fa Heat latitude of debate. Andrew Johnson, who, by a bloody accident, had become elevated to bis present position, bad proved hhnself the successor of Jefferson Davis. Tha rebellion defeated in the field has reared its triumphant bead in the Executive Mansion of the nation. He did aot wish to refer to his beastly state of intoxication when ha took the o&Ui of office in this chamber, or to bis maudlin speeches. He was a usurper, h id wilfully usurped tha powers of Congress. He (Mr. S.) would read from the National InUlUffenctr, of last November, a paper which was as friendly as possible to the President, an account of bia speech at St. Lonls. Mr. S. then read the speech made by the President, that be would "kick them ont of office." Mr. S. then argued in favor of his amendment. There would have been no ne. ceesity for this bill if Abraham Lincoln had lived. Ue bad no confidence in the President, and be bad confidence in the peeple.| A dlscassion here took plaoe between Mr. Sumner and Mr. Edmunds. Mr. Edmunds said the Seaator s amendment would bring the appointment of night watchmen under the Senate. Mr. Snmner said that was not the effect of bis amendment. ,, ^ Mr. Edmunds argaed that it woald have the effect. Mr. Sherman said it was not in the power of Congress to take these appointments from the heads of the Departments. Mr. Johnson said in case the Paesident was impeached, the Senator from Massachusetts, by bis langnage, had placed himself oat of the pale of the judges. He had used language in which, upon cooler reflection, he could hardly justify himself. The Pretident had done many things which he (Mr. J.) could dot ap. prove, but nothing to justify the langnage which bad been used towards him. Housn?On motion of Mr. Upson, (Mich.) the Committee on Poet Offices and Post Reads was directed to enquire into the expediency of establishing certain post routes In Michigan. Mr. Kltter (Ky) introduced a resolution de. daring that it was a departure from the intention in establishing the Agricultural BuI reau for the Commissioner of Agriculture to purchase and distribute in this country, seeds of native growth; and directing the Committee of Agriculture to inquire into the expediency of restricting the Commissioner of AgrlcuN ture te the purchase and distribution of seeds grown in ths United 8tates. Agreed to. The House proceeded to consideration of the bill laid over yesterday to incorporate the Washington Transportation and Goal Combill was read. The corporators are Charles i&nap, Thomas Perry, George S. Gideon. George W. Biggs, J. L. Oathcart, J. L Mitchell, Jas. Senile, G. Buckingham and B. M Hooper. The capital stock shall not be lees than #100,000, nor more than one million, and the shares of stock shall be S100 each, which shall be paid in in saoh amounts aad at such times as may be designated by the President and Directors of the Company.

Tbe Kill was*l?><>b noxious, in tbat It made tbe >r. ot tbe first I!owd ot Directors perpetual, and b?* hoped lbs house would besiLste Iwlore paeatng any more ot these bills. Tbis charter enparered th* compear to operate outside of ttii* District, and they were simply empowered to j s-ll coal wi'hin it. It wvtiid give ih^ra a m-jnopoly or th*? coat tr tde b. re. and b* could see no food reasons lor allowing this monopoly Mr. Welker eard, with rejrard to the obi*.-, tlon. tbat the same corpot&tore appeared in every bill; he woald sav that these gentlemen were, probably, the greatest corporators in tb< I?H>trlct, and hare, probably. ino*( money to us* in these mature. Mr. Wilton suggested tbat it might also be that they intended to make money by seliicr oo? tbeir franchises. Nr. Welker replied tbat there was no hing in the charter to allow them lo sell oat tbe fr*? ibi-e Mr. Wilson said it woo Id only appear so from the fact tbat tbe same persons were elwiv* named in all bills. Mr Welker said the bill allowed the companr to mine coal along the line of the Chesapeake and (Hiio cana', and were sobject to law* ot Maryland. Oentlemen might hive |M-rennal objection ?o tbe corporators, bat tbe committee bad not considered that im1 ler Mr. Wentworrb (111 ) said Congress bad recently passed a bill to enfranchise certain persons in the District of Colambia, and before they assume their right* as citinens Congre.* ?e voting away all their privileges by granin* charter*. He thought there should be no charters or-less on the principle of no distinction on account of race and color. fl,augh<er I Hwould therefore suggest the name of John T Johnson, a respectable aud wealthy colored ro?n of this District, and be would mo re that the name John T. Johnson be inserted as one of the corporators. Mr. Ktdndge (Wis ? nid be sbonld object unless the yeas and nays were allowed on the amendment. Mr. Wentworth said that was agreeable to him, as be wanted to know who were willing to adhere to the pledges made to tbe colored people. Mr. Stevens (Pa.) characterized the bill as a most pernicious proposition. It proposed to incorporate a company to interfere with private enterprise in the ram in: ol coal. Tbi* was a great mistake. Pennsylvania had tried the plan thirty years ago, and bad discov*red ?*r error, and bad passed a bill repealiug all these charter*. Tbe doctrine tbat priviu-interests were protected by State enactment was utterly untenable, and he would therefore move to lay tbe bill on the table. Mr Davis (IV. Y.) asked Mr. Stevens if be was not aware tbat Pennsylvania still had chartered companies who were working coal mines. Mr. Stevens replied that all these charters had been repealed. He bad no objection to incorporate companies to work railroads, but he objected to companies for mining purposes. Mr. Davis asserted that so late as 1*5.*) Pennsylvania parsed laws chattering eoal companies, and amended the law in !<#;? Mr. Frank Thomas (Md ) said tbe bill under consideration allowed the company to operate in the district he lepresented, aud he desired to know if the company was individually I able for damages. Mr. We ker said tbe stockholders were to th-extent of amonnt of stock Mr. 1 homes said no section of the country had suffered more than the county of Alleghany, in Maryland, by reason of laws passed by the Maryland Legislature for the protection of out*ide mining companies, who were not made responsible. These companies now owed *10,11011,(JOG or ?I;>uOU,?jo to Allegany county and tbe citi7ens thereof for unfulfilled contract* They were indebted to landed proprtetofts and to laborers; aud wb*?n titer became iaeolvent, there was nothing but old wheelbarrows and shovels and broken-down horse*, to meet an Indebtedness of over SKO.UiO. Any body of men could come into Maryland and work coal mines, but they would be compelled to abide by the laws: but under a charter of tola character tbe company would bnt re-enact the system of robberv and plunder heretofore carried out. He hoped, herefore, tbe stockholders would be made individually liable. The question wa* then taken on Mr Stevens1 motion to lay the bill on the table; and it pre. vailed Mr. Mercnr, (Pa.) from Committee 011 the District of Columbia, reported Senate bill te incorporate the Metropolitan Kire aud Insnraace Co. of tbe District of Columbia, with au amendment, providing for an annaal report to tbe Secretary ol the Interior. On motion of Mr. Wentworth. the name of ; John L. Thomas wa* Inserted as one of the corporators. Pend'ng consideration of th- bill the morn, tog hour expired and the bill went over The House tben resolved itself into Committee of tbe Whole on tbe Private Calendar, Mr Price (Iowa) in the chair. The bill to pay and discharge certain debts and expenditures to the Corporation of Wash, tngton, for tbe Government'* proportion for expenditures on account of sewers. Improving streets, Ac , and repairing Long Bridge, was taken up; and amended by providing tn^ no money should be pslld until the lt*ms are found correct by the |*reper accounting officer, and tbat a receipt in full for construction of sewers op to April, 1865, shall be Hied with the Treasurer of the L'aited States. The bill and amendment* were ordered to be reported to the House. LOCAL NEWS. Th* Swiss Bkll Rrxoxns had a very enthueiastic bouse last uigbt.

The vocal part of the entertainment was -very fine, and was alone worth the pr.ee of admission.
