Brodheaa. Second Comptroller of tbe 1 reasury. yesterday transmitted the following communication to (irarral Tompiini, in answer to iBquinee from him as to who of the employees in the (Quartermaster's Departmeat should receive the twenty per cent, increase authorized by the late act of Congress "la reply to yours of yesterday's date, 1 have to ray tbat, after a conference with tbe First Comptroller. It is tbe decision of bo'h officers that none of tbe employees named br you. except clerks, messengers, watchmen, and laborers employed in tbe t^uartermuter's offices, are entitled to tbe additional twenty per cent. The committee representing the Quartermaster's Department were assured by members of Congress that the employees declared exempt by tbe Comptroller were included in the bill as it passed It is to be hoped that tbe present Congress will pass a supplementary net m tbeir favor, if it is necessary, as it seems unjust to deprive tbe hard.working superintendents, agents, mechanics, laborers. Jcc., in the Quartermaster's Department, wbo happen to be employed outside ol the office, from an allowance granted to those so fortunate as to work indoors. There is neither justice nor humanity in such discrimination The outdoor men are as hardly worked, as poorlypaid, and as deserving as the others, and require more food and clothing, on accoant o ' tbe nature of their duties. Let all have a fair chance to sbare the benefit of the * twenty per cent." THE COMMISSIONER OF PUBLIC BUILDINGS Yes'erday. Col. B. B. French turned ove the books and papers of bis office as Cammisr aioner of l'ublic Buildings to Brevet Bngadier Oeneral N. Micbler, tbe officer detailed by Oeneral A. A Humphreys, commanding tb? Engineer Corps, to perform tbe duties ot the office, and den. M. at once entered upon bis dunes, lien. Micbler has for many ye.;rs been attached to tbe Engineer Corps, and recently has been engaged in making surveys north ot the city lor a public park, resulting in tbe ad. roirable report noted by us lately at tame length. He is a highly accomplished officer, energetic and intelligent, and is just tbe man lor the place CONFIRMATION i?F QUARTERMASTERS Amoiig tbe confirmations mini' by the Senate towards 'he close of the i*?t ??*<>,r.? the following Brevet Major General D HRucker, to be Assistant Quartermaster G jneral. *iili the rank of Colonel; Brave: Brigadier General Charles H.

Mr Morgan introduced, in the Senate to-dav, a bill "to further define and amend1* the a :l or the punishment of crimes against the United States, providing that nothing in that act, or of any act to preserve the neutral re| u tionr of the United States, shall be construed to render it illegal to sell or charter any vessel, fcbip, or steamer built in the United States, or purchased from the United States, to any Government then at peace with the United States, or to any subject thereof. although such vessel be wholly or in part prepared for war Pr>~ 1 tiled.

Mr. Trumbull said tap dknui; was to pt? (tf lUMtlftneaurj bill.

Mr. Pomeroy hoped a vote could be reached befwrc llri o'clock. Mr. Trumbull Mid ir that should be done. tb?* reoesa need rot be taken. Mr. Cob bum wished to stay here until the bill *u passed, If it took all night Th* country waa anxious (or Congress to nettle up ttie work of reconstruction and go bom", but there waa aa evident disposition on tne part 01 acme {Senators to deNy action on the bill, so aa to protract tbe eeeaton a a long aa poesible. Mr Drake would like the Senator toepenfv those Senators wbo he said were ao desirous to ! protract the session. Mr. Connate said if tbe Senator intended ?o pi t a kick oa his hat, in the expectation that 1 somebody wonIK knock it off", be would find I it rather disagreeable. He (Mr. O.) bad tne right to make tbe remark which he bad. Mr. Drake said be supposed tne .senator < migbt have referred to him, aa he bad occu pied the attention of the Senate most of tne time yesterday He ?aw no necessity for this haste to getaway, and did not know why tne 3Titb Congress had called this Congress tjp> iter if they were only to stay here for a tew day*. Mr. Coaneaa said tbe Seaator from Mi?souri would have ample time to five the Senate the benefit of his advice and experience at future test-ions The Question waa thee taken on the mo'ion to take a receea, when it was agreed to; Mr. Stunner in the negative. Mr Morgan introduced a bill to farther amend (fee act topieveatand punish crimes against the Vnited States. Referred to Committee on Foreign Relations. On motion of Mr Wilson, the Secretaries of State and of tbe Treaanry were inatructed to report to the Senate the disposition of the exerea of Consular feea received by their Depart, meats, and whether any couaular or commercial agent haa appropriated to hie own use any amount of said fees over and above bia regularly authorized compensation, and if ao, the nnmeaof such agents andamnuntareceived by tbem. and under what law or authority such amounts have been received Mr. Wilson called up the resolution reported yesterday from the Committee oa Public Buildings, amending tne twelve joint rule, so aa to prohibit tbe aale or uae of malt and aplrituous liquors in the Capitol building, which was passed. Mr. Morgan introduced a joint resolution t? remit or refund duties on agricultural machinery imported into the Vnited States as mooeis or experimentation during the year. Mr. Henderson moved to Increase the Select Committee appointed on bis resolution to en- ! quire into the management of tbe Printing Harean ot the Treasury Department from three to five members. Mr. Sherman said great damage bad been ; done by false reports which bad been sent ' over the country in regard to duplication of | funds. He could state that then* bad been no ! duplication. It appeared that the same num* ! bers bad been erroneously stamped on differ- I ent bonds, but the whole amount of these was only ?I6,0W He thought It would be better to make tne committee a joint committee. Mr. Conkling thougbt it would be better to watt and see what could be done by a conference with tbe House l!?tnmiticc. Without action being taken on tbe motion, Mr. Trumbull called np the unfinisbed business, being the supplementary a<:t to ttie bill to provide for the more efficient govern, ment of ibe rebel States, tbe question being on tbe amendment of Mr. Drake totbe4tb section. Mr. Drake moaified bis amendment so as to read that no State sball he admitted to reprerentatton in Ccngres until it provides by its Constitution tbat at all elections. National. Ma e and Municipal, the electors sball vote b> ballot. Disagreed to. Mr Trumbull moved to amend tbe Trh sec- j Hon by adding additional conditions ot admission so as to make the concluding portion read I as follows, wbicb he said wa- tbe language of the House bill. "And if tbe said Constitution shall be declared by Congress to be in conlormity with tbe provisions ot the act to which this is supple, mmtary. and the ot>ier pro visions of eaid act sbail Lave been complied witb. and tbe Constitution approved by Congress, tbe State shall be entitled to representation. and Sena'orr and Kepreventatives 'hall be admitted therefrom as therein provided/' Tbe amendment was adopted. Mr. l-'essendeu moved to amend the first section to make it read as follows : Tbat before a convention shall be bolden for tbe purpose of framing a S1 _te constitution under and by virtue of the act to provide for tbe more efficient government of the rebel States, approved March 2, If'iT. tbe commanding geneial In each district defined in said act shall cnute a registration, Jcc. Mr. Trumbull hoped tbe amendment wonld not be adopted. It would leave it optional witn tne commanding general to make a i > *!*tration. Hoi "E ?Mr. Bank;, (Mass .,) from the Cjdimittee on Rules. reported a resolution authorizing tbe printing of the rules and regulations and of Whartoh's Digest, lor the uw of members of the present Ho nee: which was agreed to. Mr. Hanks also reported the following additional rules which were severally agreed to, viz Providing tnat when ar.y act has been approved by the President tbe usual number of copies (1,550) shall be printed for tbe u?e of the members of tbe House: providing that all messages from 'be President of the I'm ted Stater, or from tbe Senate, announcing the approval or pasaze of any bills, shall be re. peated forthwith from the Clerk's desg. amend* it g tbe 134th rule so as to include members of Cougress as among gentlemen privileged to the floor of the Honse, providing they are not interested is any claim before the House, a., J will register tbat fact. Mr. Blame, , Maine,) from the same committee, reported a new rule, providing that all estimates of appropriations from the Executive Departments shall be addressed to the Speaker, in order ths; they may be laid before the House, and not gone by to the Committee on Appropriations directly as heretofore: and also a rule requiring tbat id all appriatioa bills, tbe sum total appropriated shall bes'ateri: both of wbicb were adopted. Mr. Boutwell (Mass ) introduced a joint resolution in relation to claims against the Uovernroent of the United States. Referred :o Committee ou Foreign Affaire. Mr. Ashley Nevada! presented the credentials ot Hon Mr. Mallory, Representativeelev-t from the State ot Oregon, and the latter advanced to tbe Speaker's desk and was sworn in. Mr. Hulburd (N. Y.) introduced a resolution authorizing the Speaker to bppoint tbe Committee on Public Expenditures, and that said committee be charged to take into consideration the report made at last session relative to abuses at the New York custom house, and to report the result of tbat investigation. Mr. Hulburd said be made this motion on account of charges that had bwen made against the report submitted at last session. In these charges. Mr. Smythe, tbe Collector ol tbe Port of New York, said tbat tbe report was conceived In malice: a smicmeni wuica up (air. nuioura) s&ia was utterly untrue. Mr. liulburd then referred to the denials m*de by Senators Patterson and l>oolittle, relative to tbetr alleged receipts of *5,000 each from Mr. Smytbe, and said neither of tbe Senators denied that there was some sort of an agreement pending, although they did deny receiving the money. The committee in their report did not charge that either ot tbe gentlemen had received one dollar, bat in or. der to ehow bow the custom-house was man* aged, they felt it to be tbelrduty to state all tbe testimony, and this testimony showed that an arrangement was meditated between the col> lector and between tbe Senators named. ^HICEBBIBQ * BUNS' PIANOS. jrf|^ Over 30.000 Pianos have been censtract- uTln ed and finished by this manufactory, for thesuKrioritr ef which sixty Ave arize medals have tn awarded them at exhibitions lathe United States, being tbe highest premiums over all competition They also received at the World's Fair, in London, 1861, the Prize Medal.
