Messrs. Ould.

It will compel the prompt reorganization of all the Southern States" governments in accordance with the epirit of the times, which secures tbe necessary downfall of the influence of the secession leaders over the Southern people; the great desideratum in that quarter PROVISION FOR THE SUFFERING SOUTH. All will commend tbe recent action of tbe ate in appropriating a million of dollars to relieve human suffering at the South. Should it become law. the question how tbe fund frbould best oe disbursed will arise. It strikes lis most forcibly that from fifty to a hundred thousand dollars of this fundshould be devoted as promptly as possible to tbe distribution of tbe seeds of tbe various esculents and grains throughout the South, by means of the Agricultural Department, which has the neces*-a-y organization to that end ready for the labor Such seeds, judiciously and promptly distributed in that quarter, will do more to ward off famine and suffering in that region throughout the approaching summer, fall and v inter, than a hundred times their cost dis tributed in provisions at this time. CONGRESS TO DAT. The House adjourned over to-day until i? t? morrow instead of until Monday, in the expectation that the Senate will to-day dispose ?f tbe bill supplementary to the military gov. eminent bill, in which caae the House will try to get action to-morrow on anv amendment* adopted in tbe Senate. Should tbe bill be disposed of by Congress this week, and the President de*i promptly with it, as it is ?u. der^tood he will dc, there will be nothing to pre\ent an adjournment by tbe middle of neat week. There is an evident impatience apon the part of members to get away, and it e-ms quite certain that an adjournment will he effected next week.

A full display of all these new styles, figures, rare combinations of shades and rich puterns would in itself be a museum of novelties sufficient to attract admiring and wondering crowds, almost anywhere, throughout the season.

Corset jeans are in good request Denims are lower. Printcloths are firmly held, without sties to any great extent. Woolen goods, of many styles, are firm and higher under the new tariff.
