Tbe initi'jctiont for the now Commissioner to Bogota were sent en to New York by a special messenger yes terday, and Mr. Morse Is expwt'd to leave to day by the Illinois lor Asplnwall. From there he will go tn the Mean frigate Wabash to Ca-tbagena. I l?arn that the general tenor or his Instructions are la conformity with tbe vleirs on the New Granadlan questions set forth by the Hbk.wjj. Ho U to reiterate tbe demand Already made by Judge Bow liu lor Indemnity to the suf ferers by tbe Panama riot will ask for a proposition from the New Granadlan government for a final settle ment of tbe mall transit question, for which a respect able tonus will be paid, and will Insist upon some sub ?tantlal i ecurlty for the transit across the Isthmus tn 'future. It is laid that when Mr. Hoagley, President of ^he Panama Railroad Company, was here lost week, he urged Mr. Marcy to make an oiler for the purchase out Tight of the Isthmus, but the Secretary woold not listen to such an idea. Mr. Morse's instructions do not Include tie mlesion to Guatemala, so that Is still open to the as. pi rations of the faithful. The Berate not being in session to day tbe House had everything its own way. Tne galleries and lobbies were crowded to excels, as It was rumwed that sufficient de mocratic force bad arrived to reconsider the vote rotus leg Wbitfielit his seat It wa* soon determined by the Whitfield party to let tho vote be taken and risk the con sequences. Tbe opposition joined Issue, though doubtful -of the result. The cxcitemcnt now ran high, and every man was urged by the leaders to stand to hla desk, as single vote might turn tho '.(sua. Tho vote commenced, and was completed before any Idea oruld be formed as to which party had won. Tbe Speaker at last announced tbe vote to be one hun dred and eight ayes and one hundred and eleven nays three majority against laying on tho table the motion to reconsider. This was a test vote, and the struggle was considered anded, when the scenes suddenly shifted, and the faroe was renewed by tbe republicans refusing to lake the vote to reconsider, and by factious movements stavtng off any tlnal action. The ecene now presented In the hall was ludicrous and disgraceful in tho extreme. The sudden change of par Ctea In the play created exessstve laughter throughout tbe hall and gal. errs. As too delay would only strength 3n the democrats, tbe pro,?o.-ltion to postpone until Tues day next was agrtid toby theui, and the curtain fell. The exe< uttve documocts whi ;h have been com muni sated to tbe Senate, but trhtcb bave not yet been ordered Co he printed, are now being put In typo, and printed cop es win be ready tor distribution as soon as the order for printing U made. As yet they are confidential. The bait being cleaned lor members to spinet sea's as 1be!r nemos wcro drawn, tho tlrst name drawn was Whit Jell, o' Ktnsas This was followed by shouts and wsrlng c4 bats trr.m tbe lobbies aad galleries. As the House bad refuted, however to permit Whltfleld to be sworn, the Speaker dccidcd he could not be permitted to take bis seat. Col Wizard, Ooierror "lect of Indiana, was tn the lobby of the House to day wrrounded by hia friends. He says Indiana is certain to elect two democratic Sena ?tors. Gol Medary, o* Ohio, will be pressed for the Post O'Qct Department unler Mr. Buchanan Mr Stephens, of Georgia, says the report that Fre mont had challenged Senate r Toomts is false.

Aad the north era route la greeted to the Northern Lakea and Taclfto Railroad Company, of which Alexsadsr Ramsay la Preal deat, aad to their aasonlatea, ruooeaaera aad assigns. All these companies are already the recipients of laada from Congress, and the attempt la now made lo extend the r greats (whtefc have taken np ell the public lande wthli tbe Httee) ta the Pacific, so as lo five them all the lands in the Territories aad the vast ptaia lying on either side of the Reeky Monnta'e*.

It It useless to say anything by telegraph as to the fea sibility or constructing the*e roads, or as ti their being profitable even 11' constructed, because tbe bill on It* face demonstrates that tbe projectors have no Hea of com pleting them. The bill expressly provides that as each fifty miles ol road Is constructed the Commissioner of the General I.and Office tball band over to the companies alternate aecllons twenty sections deep; and thai tbe speculators will follow tbo settlements and build their roads as tbe country may oecome peopled. They will follow civilization, not lead it, and thus quietly usurp the public lands for all time t) come, deriving a never failing source or revenue, apart from any consideration as to tbe wants or California or the completion of a rwd to the Pacific. Such a plan, so extensive, embracing suoh dazzling prospccts to tbe speculators, to the politicians, to the members ol Congress abou> retiring from public life forever, will, of course, command a powerful and active Influence Men ot all grades and characters are In favor or It. You will find your Weeds, your Seward*, your Webbs, your Forneys, your Sidney Websters, your Franklin Pierces, your Oreeleys mixed up In It. News paper correspondents of Inlluentlal ptj eri are bought up ? x-Secators, ex-Cabinet officers, ex U. C '* are pur chased at so many acies per head. Tne vote of a mem ber of Congress is worth ten thousand acres or. land In this grand operation. that is the amount offered. But opposed to the scheme are many of those who ob tained grants of lands for railroad* last year, and who are not In this Iresb attempt to swindle the people oat or ttelr territory, and who are fearful that If the new grants are obtained their profits will be greatly diminished. Between thoso rival in terests there Is to be a great light, and curious ilovelopements will be made on bom sides. THIRTV-FOlltTH COVCillES-S. SECOND HhPSlON. Uoum of Representatives.
