The matter of the misappropriation of works printed by Congress Is attracting some attention from the House It is strongly suspected that sundry parties about the Capitol have mono "good things" out of tho distribution of boos*, or rather tho misappropriation of the works apportioned to members. Works which have co^t the government a large sum per copy are to ba found in the IhkiW auctions Gnu on the stalls of ihe venders of cheap and second hand books, at prices hardfr up to the cost of binding.

Another collision, growing out of the fracas in the House on Saluri'-ay morning, occurred at the National Hotel last evening, between a reporter in the House and a Dr. I?eib, oi Illinois. The doctor took exception to some remarks made by a correspondent for a Boston paper. In regard to Mr. Barksdale losing his wig during the House mdie, and threatened to pull said correspondent's whiskers. The parties in the original contract; > 4 , the doctor and the correspondent from Boeton, separated without difficulty, but the quarrel was renewed by the former and a friend of the latter, shortly sfter. Tho skirmish proved of short duration, and was a kind of side show to tbe House entertainment. But all sorts of rumors were immediately afloat all over the city, and it was reported that the reporter had been sbot. The community here la In a state of nervousness hardly imaginable, and the groatest apprehensions are indulged that something serious will occur before the close of the session. There is every prospect that the ameudmente to the steamboat law prnfosed by the Committee of Commerce will succeed m the House, and greater security to life and property will be attained.

The steamer will therefore lay at her dock until such time as the necessary repairs can be effected. She is announced to sail on tbo 20th of March next, ft seems the winter passages of none of the Kuropean steamers have paid as yet. and tins will also account for the laving up of the \ andost>ilt until tho 10th of April.

Men who ha?o talked rebellion, acted rebellion, ami mad* police*' capital out of such talking and su h aeiing, are astonished when the chief ot our greet ration solemnly declares to Ocngress that tbey hare been m rebellion.

An organtzed government avowedly endeavoring to subvert lire legal government of a State or Territory is rebellion. Such is the position of the Topeka State govern ment and Its supporters. Not only Is their position that of rebellion. but lhat of the most factious inconsistency. Tho grounds taken by the tree Mate partv up to the 'J4th of September, 1867, were thai they would never In auy way, shape or form, acknowledge ths existence, authority, legality or laws of the first fraudulently elected Is-gis lature. In the mass Convention held utGras-hopper Koto, on the C4th September, 1857, they solemnly and deliberately departed from those grounds by deciding almost unanimously to acknowledge that legislature its authority and Its laws, by going into the election for a Territorial Legislature, under the provisions cf naid laws, at the time specified in those laws, and for the purpose* therein dasignaled. By that decision the free State party obtained the present Territorial legislature That decision at Grawhopjier Falls shoidd never be tout sight of; it has been too little regarded both inside and outeide of the Territory. Well, having acknowledged that which they had sworn never to acknowledge, bav eg after mature deliberation determined to cliatige their tactics and designs, the only consistent or judicious policy thov could have followed would have been to have continued the acknowledgment of that legislature, fallen in with the provisious of Its laws, till, having a majority in the Territory, they couid have at the ballot box destroyed every line and letter of said laws, obtained the entire command cf the local government. sent their parly representatives aud senators to Cor press anil bad everything their own way just as much as i( Kkusah had been admitted under the Topeka constitution. But no: peaco was not the dosiro of thenleaders; they must pursue a factious policy?to-day acknowledge the first Territorial Legislature. to morrow swear they never would do it In any shape or manner. They eould easily have killed the op|>oeHion and bad control of everything before now, but that was not the desiro of the free State leaders, for contemptible, selfish pur. poses, they have been determined to keep up the cxcltoment here?extraneous influences have aided them in It; hence they have led their party into crooked ways. Judge Conway, than whom no man in the free State party i- more respected, and who is said to be the ablest speaker in the Territory, at Grasshopper Falls Convention spoke for two hours in favor of putting the Topeka State government into operation then; be had pledged himself ' never to acknowledge tho authority of the bogus I eg is la. j ture, and waa determined to act up to his word. He was thc only man in that Convention who voted against ac ! knowledglng the bogus legislature, by voting as directed ! by its laws. But since (hat day Mr. Conway has Ignored ! the Topeka movement?ho considered fc bur.ed then and tlit re?that the popular verdict there had been given : against It. He liu ever niece maintained that the proslavery party, their lawn. Legislature and constitution should be killed legally through the proviaioisa or the acknowledgment of tlie laws of the original Territorial I/eg-slatuie. Such to the free State party wan the only cotsistent, the only judicious policy; but the demagogue* of that party, who then voted for voting, are now continually going bi ff re the people and advocating the original plan, never to acknowledge the ao called bogus legislature, It* authority or laws, when ttaoy have already done it in the most solemn and public manner; they are continually bindirg thcm*clvc4 by oaths and imprecations never to do it, and as frequently dotng it. By this far tiovis, Inconsistent, contemptible course, they have confused the people, deceived the people, and bartered the people's peace lor seltish gain and hope of omce. At (Iras.-hopper Ka Is Convent.on the people dcr'ded against rebellion and for >nw?they relinquished their original lartiouK policy. it was a popular verdict for peace and order, for a peaceable settlement of our difficulties, ilut the fanatics lu the patty, the men who have fingered abolition 1 gold, and the political aamratitf. hava changed and con- I fused all this until It would he difficult to say where the I party now stands, rent as it is with hostile factions. The position of the Toprka Legislature and its supporters? fh- 1 ratios and despicable pohtti ans who would Join right ; bands with the devil to secure a position?Is, however, marked and plain. To all arguments they an I ?wer by merely referring you to tho Bauds and outrages I rommttuo by the pro slavery party.

It should teach them, too, that a human instrument, executed by human hands, can never tie void of offence to some.
