Craae D The Senate will have to be organized this year as well af the House. Owing to the death of Senator Rusk, tho President pro tern. of the Senate, that body will bo with out a President to call them to order. Vice President Lreckinridge, In consequence of illness in his family, will not be in Washington for some days after the openiug of the session. It is thought that Senator FiUpatrick, of Alabama, will be elected President />r? ten. The House will be organized immediately. The Pemo iTaiie Caucus cn Saturday night settled that. W.~ have placed the. names ut tlie new officer* at trio head of the list ot members. The H-usc will be nearly 11 not quite full Mr. Carutbers, 01* Missouri, w ill be absent. Owiug to . 1 r t.iii ed ill-health, ho will not he alila to uke his seal at the opening of Congress, tils physician* have advised him to go to Cuba, before proceeding to Washington, and accordingly he will leave in a few days. Mr. Caruthora u suffering from bronchitis. It is believed tiiat should 0. B. Matteson present him self and attempt to take hw scat at tho opening of Con gress, a resolution will be offered for his expulsion. It is said that he will not make his appearance at the early part of the session, but will wait until bis friends ascer tain the complexion of tho House. It is doubtf ul whether they ran get a twu thirds vote, as it will require that to expel him. The black republicans will probably vote to give him his seat. Ttie only way, and it is understood that there is a dis position to adopt this plan, is, for tho House to refuse to receive his credentials, and that will bring the members to a direct vote on the question, ami a majority can refuse U> let him take hu> htuL Newspapers have been sent litre to menilM-r* from his own district, with articles mark-'d, strongly protesting against alluwiug him to tako bis seat. On the other haiiu, Mr. Matteson has sent to every member a printed |>amplilet, purporting to bo a complete vindication of his r-ourse while a member of the last Congress, and ceuiuring the Investigating Comm. uee for making their re|iort against hun and recommending his expulsion. The new and threatening aspect assume,! by the Kansas question has diaheartened many of the third house," who have been seised with gloomy forebodings of' having again to leave the national capital with "nary red" as destitute of cash ax they probably will be of clothes and credit We published on Saturday the new constitution o' Kansas as passed by the lieoompton Convention, the consult ration ol which will rorm the most prominent sub ject of discus* ion in the coming Congress The Pre* id Mot's Message will dwell at great length on Kan a** affairs, and, aside from the waste of time in political Buncombe speeches, the etlorU for some practical settlement of these dilUcultim, which have been too long nurtured by scheming politicians, will occupy much of the attention A Congress Tho Interest of the entire country is centereJ on the Kansas question, and Its consideration may be Justly deemed paramount to all others. The I'tah que- 11 on may be appropriately ranked nevt to Kansas. Whether Krlgham Young shall be authored to defy the authority of the government, to ruasaaci ? our troops ami U< innoculate our country with bis pestifensis doctrines, is to be decided by Congress. The do- trine thut imlygumv is a domestic institution like slavery, and that I'tah, tf she desires it, must onme 111 as a State. ? ,1b all her beastly dogmas of faith, lias yet to be di*ci.-?e t m Congress, and douMlons will occupy mu> h ol' the att rition at the coming session The Mkineoota eoii'titution win cone up for eouidera tk n, and will un<loubt<slly he mIo|H?<I. Mmiie.- u will then be entitled to two I'nlted State* Senators and a mem ber of Crn press. Messrs. Shields and ltu-c will probably be th > new Senators. The Oregon constitution was submitted to the pen. pie on the nth of November. The slavery provision will tin doubt be stricken out, and Oregon will be admit!'"! by Congress as a free Plate. Messrs. lane and HUjvcij* will probably be the Senutor* from the new State. The probabilities are that several new Territorial go vernments will b? ordered to be organised by the present Congress. Senstor Gwin has In readiness bills proponing Territorial governments for "Arisnna" or " Colorado" and "Sierra Nevada" or "(VlumbtM," which will be introduced on the first day of the session The latter will comprise that portion of the country lying east of the Risky Mountains and bounded by tboee moun tains on the east, the Sierra Nevada on the wost, the Oregon and I'tah lines on the north, and the doo** \?s k Mountains on the south. The (teople residing within Hhmp limits have sppomted Col. James A. Crane as their dele gate to Washington Arizona Is represented by Ueut. Mowry. of thr army. Inadditien b>tbese,|teeotah, which lies west of the Minnesota State lino, will also probably be 1 rganlred. Mr Fuller* aln ad) on huil as delegate to Congress. rr> m.nent n Importance and magnitude of all nh|ects for nats nal legislation tluring the present se?slon is the grind Pacific Railroad pmjcs t. by which It 1s proposed to connect the M t-MslppI river with the Pacific Ocean by m-ans of a first 1 lass double tr iek railway, constructed by Individual ei terprtse, but aided by a O^gresskmal grsnt of oac hun dred snd liny millions of acres of public land, taken In alternate sections. This subject will be warmly urgo.1 upon Congress by President Buchrtnan in his annual mc'-ssge. and the s gns of the times indicate that th* recommendation will be favorably considered taiu acted on by both house? of Ciitgrets. The terrible calamity of the Itw* of the Central America, the Mormon rebellion, and the dangers attending the isthmus routes to our Pacific (sswessions, all go to Impress the public mind with the importance of a railroad ncros* our continent Several hundred thousand dollars b?ve been expended by the general government In ?ur Tf.v ng the ?\ ei-^i '( tc nnd tb? chane?? are in favor of a bill prr. c'u for three sepnratfl ro-ites, as reported ?'nil, III.

Wns bill proposes an appropriation of one mllien ef dollars to aid in tho construction of the ran il ou tho same terms on which the li>uisville canal was constructed ? the money to bo refunded out of 'Jin proceeds of the canal when finished. The legislatures of Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky have paused resolutions asking for this aid and urging the necessity of the work. Tho Oominitteu oa Commerce of the last Congress refused to report a bill f*r this work. Tbe Niagara ship canal will also be strongly repre sented here, and a bill will be introduced into both houses of Congress, proposing an absolute grant to that company of one million of acres of public laud Uyiid iu the construc tion of a ship canal around the Falls of Niagara on tho American side, which shall forever be free to tho United States, both in peace and war. This bill, however, stands condemned by Mr. Buchanan, who says he would not have approved thn grant to the Michigan canal had ho then been President ol' the United Slates. Tbe following points will probably be covcred by the internal improvement bills which will bo introduced, viz:? Rock Island rapids in the Mississippi river. Harbor of Chicago. Harbor of Waukegan, 111. Opening communication between Albemarlo sound, V. C , and the AUluitic ocean. Purvey of Mississippi river from Fort fuelling to the Falls of St. Anthony.

These comprise only a email part of the bills of a similar character which are now ready to be introduced into the House of Representatives immediately upon its organisa tion. Tbe Governor of Mississippi, in his last annual mo.ssape, calls the attention of the people of that State to the sub. jeet of the construction of a railroad from the Gulf coast to the interior, a subject which, he says, occupied the atten" ticn of the people nearly twenty years ago. In 1864 it ap pears an act passed the Mississippi legislature amendatory of anotlier parsed in 1860, incorfieratiiig the Gulf and Ship Island Railroad Company, but no organization of the com l>auy ever took place under it. Under an art passed in March, 1M4, Ave thousand dollars were appropriated to survey the route, the line being required to conn rt with the Southern, or the New Orleans, Jackson and Great Northern road, at Brandon, Jackson or Canton, an the northern terminus. The survey of the route, the Gover nor says, was made with refereuco to Jackson as thj northern termiuus, and the valley of I'earl river as the route.
