Washington, Feb. 28,1861. A very rich seen? occnrrod In the IIoubo to-day, on the neeasion of the adoption, by a two-thirds vote, of one of tbe propositions reported by Mr. Cor win, which forever prohibits guy interference, by constitutional amend a>?nt,or by Congressional action, with slavery in the States where it originally existed under the constitution. The announcement of the vote?one hundred and thirty three yeas to sixty-five nays?produced tremendous applause on tho Boor and In the galleries. All the radical republicans voted against it, and tome moderate republi cans did the eamo thing, who view the proposition as enly an endorsement of one of the planks in the Chicago j piutfarm, and would have voted for it but for the taot that the representatives of tho Southern States would not agree to come half way, and declare that they would unite with tho Northern States in tho enforcement ef the constitution and laws if It passed. The Southern BK Biberfl in the committee refused to vote for it, but In la the Houso they did vote for It. Mr. Adams ts author mt tic proposition. The passago by a two-thirds vote of the House of Mm propone*! amendment to the constitution, inspires every one with hopo of a final and satisfac tory adjustment. Members who wero hopelessly despondent heretofore arc In high spirits now, for they see in this a sifting of the republican party of Its aboli tion element, and the formation of a strong Union na tional party. The sixty-live out of the nearly two hun dred who vot-?d on the question are now regarded In h^h quarters as the debris of republicanism, and entirely out ?T tho ring so far ws Presidential favor is concorned. That tho movement to-day is favorably entertained by j Mr. lincoln r have strong personal aatnranoe. His in aeghral will take no step backward of It. Senators Seward, Wilkinson, ("handler, Wade, Colla 1 Mr, King, DUou, Toster, Simmon*, Anthony, Cameron, Ten Kycfc, Thomson. aiul all tho democratic Senators, , will vote for the Coi a in amendment, and it will be car- , rted by a two thirds vote. Tbo feeling to-night among responsible circles fortifies the statement m <!<? above, Uiat tho (Senate will endorse the resolution passed by the House to il.ty looking toward in adjustment. Ibe adoption of Mr. Oarwin's propositions by the requi site two-thirds vote must bo ascribed to the knowkxlgo ef certain members in what direction the wind blows in administration circle. Having friends to provKlo for they havo no desire to swim against the executive cur rent. THE PEACE CONGRESS ADJUSTMENT. | Waramovn*, Feb. 29,15C1. Tho programme of the Peace (ingress is almost hopelessly tost. Tho select commilttce of tho Senate re ported to day, but Mr. Hale, on behalf of the republican Senators, condescended to interpose the rules, ud pre vented the reading of ihe resolutions. A second time to-day a single objection prevented the action of the Senate, and Mr. llale was quite willing to be the Iontru ?entof his party. When the resolutions come up to-morrow they can only teeeire a second reading, and then a single objection will pat them over till Saturday. Under tho rule Mr. Diglor Introduced a resolution tto Mspen<l this rule, so far as relates to resolutions and bills providing Tor the amendment to the constitution. Unless Mr. Bigler's resolution prevails, dual action will bo im possible. Mnch indignation Is manifested at the f^ctloua oww*e ef the republican Senators. All Is confusion and gloom. Nothing & in sa\ e the country but to take the some of the people to instruct the next Congress, as provided by Mr. Blgler. Mr. Seward i>roi>oses a Convention of the Slates, but everybody knows Congress has no control of that ?abject, and could only express opinion of Congress for the benefit of the people. Mr. Blgler, on tbo other liand, proposes to take tho opinion of tho peopln for the bonetit at Congress, which is far more sensible. TOE RBPUBLICAN PROPOSITION IN THE PEACE CONGRESS.

THE NKW YORK COMMISSIONERS I? THE PEACE CONFERENCE. Wahklvcton , Feb. 28,1901. Tito course of the New York Commissioners la the Peace Conference has not given tlie utmost cotisfactiuu. In fact, they hare rather brought discrodit upon the State than otherwise. Mr. Davkl Dudley Fiekl, chairman and iiirtuentUl man of the delegation, had done all he could to stirtbn their backbone axainst making any concessions to tho South, while John A. King and WilliamCurtiB Xoym, true to their abolition instincts, bave labored in every possible manner to irritate the border BtaUu by likewise refusal# concisions to them. O* Wednesday, however, when the question came to a final vote, Mr. David Dudley Field was not on hand. Many of the radicals havo consequently felt deposed to censure him for bucking down from his allegiance. It appears, however, that at a regular mooting of the dele gation it was agreed by a majority that tho State should vote "no ' as a unit ou each of tho propositions. Mr. John A. King was elected chairman pro Urn. of this meeting, while Mr. Field went oil to the Supremo Court to attend a case in which he was then engaged. When thoqucetiou came up yestcrilay for decision, In stead of voting "no," as had boea arranged by Mr. Ftold, Mr. King got Curried and endeavored to explain his po sition, which, by the way, the Convention had nothing to do with; and in doing thin ho upset the whole of Field's fat in tho lire, and when tho vote wad Uken the proposition was carried. .11 Mr. Field ho?l only been on luu,d tho I'oaee G. infer ence would undoubtedly he to day whi'ro they were on Tuivsday. Those. therefore, who now gk.rify o\ er the success of the I*eaoo (>>n'.'creuce, will do well to pro sunt a servlco of plato to tho learned gentloimui's client, who carried him oU to the (supreme i oart, when the lire became hottest, to try his case. OH ItT MARTIAL UPON CAPT. POPS OF THB ARMY. WiNDiVHW, Fob. 28,1861. While traitor* are turning up daily all over tho coun try , and are either treated with the highest diplomatc consideration by the head;- of the several departments, or or'- not ho much as 'invited" to appoar before a gotio rai .our; martial, it novvat e\tr.ie. .iinnry tliat luch a pro ceeding a* 1 am al liberty to announce should have evor <ntunat>?l, all the surrounding < rcumstances considered. It w well known UiatCapl. John l'ope, of the Cwps of To |K>grai>hicil 1-nghv of the United State- Army, ?.jj invited with others to accompany Mr. lancoln rr??m Sivinglield to Washington. This was not only intended as a complimont to the p> raonal worth of Cap tain l'ope, but t was in port growing out of tho fact that the fathor of Captain l'.qie wan a personal frinnd of Mr. I.lncoln's for many yearu Thin morning Copt-iln l'ope received a communication troui Adjutant General ?>*>per, totumanding him, by oruer of the .-Secretary of JVar, to proceed at once to Kswport ftirncks, Kentucky, to ap pear before a general Court Martial, which lias bcon or der. ..i to ooiin cno ttiore on the 4th of March. The charge# a* alii, t the Captu.c are for "usia^ oonumptuous and dls wpnctful word agaiiirt the I*resident of the I'nited tJtutss." Th> i.rst up.*-location is that Captain i'opo did, nt Cincinnati, l?hlc>, on the 9th day of February, 1*441, in an address to a litorary club in that city, use tho foi* lowing language:? It ic impossible to control th? uwtimt-ihment and Indig nation which every American must feel when he consi ders in what a position t few lootitlia of tho Administra tion of a bad or a weak u.an liavo pU"ed this great and prt^j^ous oouutry.

M?jor JoIjd F. Ije? is to be.'ii'Ige Advocate, and, sltvpi lar to say, Captain (loo. W. Hax/ar 1, U. 8. A., who was also one of Mr. 1 jieola's m:ite, and Is now h<Te, has been ordered to proceed to \i-wjort, Ky., as a member of the Court. Cue or tbe extraordinary facts oonneeted with this truiaaet.cn is, that thoso two (rentlemen should be ordered to ionvo their present position, to which they have been Invited by the President elect, and to ongnge in the peculiar b. ?ines:- alluded to, on the very day that Mr. l.lndcln m to be inaugurated. If (hptain l'ope said whit la charged against him, bo only exprossod an opinion ar an Am?riean citizen, whtrh right a man is not. or ought not to be deprived of o> this ix/intry by the foot that he Is an ofl.oer of the American army. Tho Secretary of War is aevtroly censured for pursuing th.foourse against Citi>ktin l'ope, but many believe that Mr. Holt will tn time relieve lilmsolf of the rc*i>onsiblllty tit ktic* un act.

nounccd at tho first business In order. Mr. Knaoiue, (rep.) of lnd., who mado tho oration, called the attention of his republican friends to tho im portance ol tho voto they were now called on to give. But a few days a^o they ali emphatically declared, by sanctioning tbe resolution unanimously adopted, that tiny bad no desire or disposition to interfere with slavery m the States wh.-ro it exists. Yesterday, however, they tiyemcd to huvo forgo(ton thin declaration, carried away by wild lunatic ism, and also the peculiar condition of tho country requiring somo action. If they liad chan-ed the,r ground since tho occasion to which ho had referred, and were now disposed to invade tho sovereignty of tho States, then ho ??s no republican. In repeated speeches he bod sold those who accused the republicanH of such a design uttered s'.indor. Should they say to tho world, when they are about to tx**.?ss tho power of the gov eminent, that thoy aro Tor usiiur it to break down tho soverKtfn rights of th* suta* ami inwido their privfVgcF? If that wu* tho do< truio ho ?uuld not sut>ecrlbe to it. They should bear In mind that they were uot the mM(cr><, but tbe m"re servants of tho p? o. pie. The proposition to nmend the constitution should bo taken to thoir masters, an l tho latter sh?dd l?> afdtod whether they will approve or nycet it. K?>r tlw take ol" the peace and (tulot of tho oocntry, niv for tho good of tho republican party, tho ropubli.?iw should como for ward to-day, and with tho ame uaiuimity with which they had voted for the resolution to which he h.id re ferred, t<> declare the same thing in tho pmdin" proposi tion as an amendsu nt to the constitution. If you tad to give peace you wrong > ourselves, not tlw pcopio, and oa jour beads will fail tho responsibility.
