Notwithstanding the energetic efforts of Hon. Charles H. Van Wydt, in raising and putting in good oondition one of the tent regiments Nvw York has contributed to the grand army of tho Potomac, the labors of the Con gressional Investigating Committee, of which fee Is Chair man, proceeded almost without Interruption. Al though the ridlculoiia custom of withholding tho report of such committees until the nest session <ef Congress has V.e4n?dhered to in this instance, tho committee bag al r<*dy done much good. It has, from time to time, through tho Chairman, made to tbe different depart ments of the government recommendations and Bug les Hons as to tbe existence and Character of tbe leaks discovered. These recommendations have been generally acted upon, and hive contributed much to economise, or at toast to ditjtenfe with wasteful and unnecessary expenditures of the public money. One of tbe abuse* corrected by this means was the extravagant prices paid for arms purchased in Europe by agents Of different Btates, who were competing with each other, and running up the price of arms, for which thft govern ment will ultimately have to pay. The committee U now insension at Harrlsburg, overhauling tlie contracts in Pennsylvania, whero a heavy businers has been done in hon>es, and ntimbors have been purchased and sent to Kentucky. It will prolxtbly maku a partial report at an early peri'wl in the coming session, and coutinuo its labors until they have been thoroughly completed. AMtTFFMKNTS AT TIIK CAPITAL. Mr*.

The question having arisen as to the power or authority of the two governments, under tho convention between the United States and New C.ranada for tho adjustment of the claims of the cttlaens of the United States, to change or revoke said Commissioners' appointments, tho follow" ing letter from the Secretary of State to Mr. Uurtado upon that subject fully settles that matter.

[From the Memphis Apiwai, Nov. 16.] FVom a letter 111 tho Southern dated the 11th, at Riiu-golil, Georgia, we 1. urn that the two bridge* burned ou tho We?t-?rn aud Atlanta Railroad, aer< as the Chli k tmaoga, are about eight pules from Chattanooga, and about half a inilo apart. Tho Fast Tonnessoo ant Georgia Railroad crosses the stream between them, and about one hundred ami liny yards liulow the upper one. Colonel John D. Gray, who built tbom, estimate* their cost at above $18,000. Miyjor Rowland, tho superintend ent, was at tho place of tho disaster with a large forre on the 10th, anil will have good, sub.' tantial trestle bridges made, and tho trains ruuuing regularly iu about two weeks. H'i has a number of the vory best rsilroad me chanics iu the country actively engaged, together with a large force of laboreis. Arrangements are made with the l ast Tennessee and Georgia Railroad to carry the freight, mail and paw vigors b.{ tho way of Clevo, and to

Chattanooga, aud in two or threo days tbe puactiger trains will run regula: ly on the State read. [From the Knox\ ille Register, Nov. 1ft.} Wo are requested to -ay that troops, passengers and army supplies, Intended for East Tonne?**e.as far cast as this point, will meet with no delay la cou.iequenco of the burning of the Hiwut-so bridge ou tho East Tenuessce aud Georgia Railroad. ON 'CHANGE? BUSINESS NEWS. [Krorn Iho Memphis A p) teal, Nov. 1C.] There was no 'Change held yi ste: dav , but nevertheless we have matters of interest connected with It, which we Islce the oppoi tunity of a vacant day to pulilisli. In eonsequenoe of the accident to General I'olk, by the bursting of the gun some days ago in (Vlnmbus, General 1'illow is now In command there We loarn from Captain I/idwick. of the steamboat Kentucky which reached our lauding from Columbus yesterday , th.it wbilo in Coluin bus ho had an Interview with General Pillow, in the course of which that otOrer gave him verbal orders to bring no corn down to Memphl*. Tie said It was scarce in camp: th.it the Cotton l'lant had been detained to go In search ol some, and not a bushel of corn would be allowed to bo taken iiwav ? nol a single bushel. It is difficult to understand how it is that out merchants, at this distauco from the spot, can get tho a' tide in abundance. If they are allowed to do so, while the army commissaries, in the neighborhood where it is grown, are uuablo to keep the army supplied which they might do to overflowing, for all account* concur in representing corn us being ex tremely plenty up tho river. The consequence was that the Kentucky was > oiium lieu to |pavo beliiud the corn she had intondod to bringdown. There is stated to be some heart burning in the sur rounding country towards Munphis on account of the high, we may permit ourselves to say , the extqrtionato prices which salt but reached. Wo beg to call attention to Iho foci that it was in New Orleans, and not in Mem phis, that the rapid ami extreme rise of salt took place. It is from New Orleans the salt comes to Memphis, and a rise there could not but elici t this market. That salt has risen h 're in a needles* degree, from siwculatlvc action and not from the legitimate operation of the lines of supply aud di'inaud, is conceded by our bust merchants, some of whom arc living every means ''to block tho gsme" of Illegitimate speculation. We loam, for instance, that tbo commission house ol golden k Co. have a shipment of Kanawha tilt ou Iho way, which both consigners and con si, "nee have determined to sell without any regard to the lull . ted rates that have prc\aiie?l. We wcio assiye 1 one weHc ago, by a party who Is en paged In coll'H'tlng statistic?, that thwe were thou from 3'.' ,000 to 36,000 sacks of rait iu tins city. Tho books of the Merchants' Exchange show that no sale? of salt liavo boon mv'e for rome days; pe ?|>le will do without the ar ticle until Iho price Iwx tiles reasonable; that is, they aro willing to pay what tho exigencies of tho times mako necessary ? no more. A tein;iomrv absence from pur i liases will send the (speculator*' horse of cards tumbling about their ears. Wo noticed an a rival of uiuety-llvo .-aeks of salt on Iho Mississippi Hiid IwiueMeo Ralln ad on Tuesday, uuri we are Informed that other small shipments are making on tho Memphis and Charleston Kail road. and tint in sonio instances those who aro sending i' say they have moro thin is required for their nei .hborbi od. 'Ih s does not nienk well for the sustaining of present prii op. Tho feeling of the pco |de, tho amount of salt on hand, tho determination of s. lid he re' ants to Invo no share in unwarrantable st* cu ?at Ions in an article of such universal necessity, the dead state of the salt market, itntl tho probable results of an oxi'luriaion of cur owe mineral rcKoutces, cannot fuil to bring halt down in the market.

The Fourth Wisconsin and Seventeenth Massachusetts are at Drummondgtown. Two rcb^l officers hod been arrested, and two iron can non hadboen taken. Captain Richards' cavalry had b'en despatched, boforo tho messenger left, to take possession cf six brass cannon known to bo near tho town of unly on Onancock inlet, Governor Wiso's old residence, and h id no doubt succeeded in doing so. Colonel Smith, commander of tho rebel forces, and some of his ofTlccrs, were trying to escape from tho lower extremity of Northampton, but Flcg Olllccr Go'ds borougU Iris, at General Mix's request, put tho whole slioro under surveillance, and it is bclievod that they will all be capturad if they do not surrender.

When steamships owned by Engllshmon, loaded by Englishmen, despatched by Englishmen, manned by Eng lishmen, continue to leave English ports, under English colon, under ll\o very eyes of the American legation and tlio I nglith Foreign oltlce, full of goods contraband of war, in aid of tboso in open rebellion against tho federal government; wbon I.ord Pulmorston replies to Mr. Adams, " Ye*, wo know it ? catch them If you can;" when it bo comes geuorally known that the English army is seces sion, the English navy is secession, tlio E igiish church is secession, tho English Parliament is neoec.sii n, tho English aristocracy is secession, the Knglish mercantile marine and tho English banker arc secession, as you may any day see by reading tho secession articles in tho English secession daily, weekly and monthly press ? I say, when you boo tho eutiro dress circlo of England ii secession to the lack bono, it is time to de clare, from personal observation, that tlio English pit Is sound, and goes for tho Union to the last. The boxes breathe hostility, but the galleries uro trus to tlio Union cause. War between England and America Is altstird, simply because when iho war Cabinet declares war tho pooco people will demand peace. The people of Kn gland will not fight the people of America; but tho liaders are doing their best to egg them on to bloodshed. Tho driver of the stage couch run place all tho passengers in the river if ho chooses. But the Prcmior fears Dial ho cannot jump off in time to save hiR own neck. English politics are in a rotten state ? nobody knows anybody; Uerman politics are equally mixed, French politics aro muddy, Kussian politics aro rather luuy, while American politics aro divided into tho party of traitors and the party of patriots. There are moro of the former In Europe than tho lattor, I regret to say. Secession seems fashionable with many of our morchants and bunkers abroad. They think It for their interest to bo neutral, as they call it. I con sider neutrality the basest kind of treachery? an open enemy is preferable to a neutral friend. Tho highwayman who demands your money or year life in open road is noblor than tho seump who Ores at you from behind a troo and robs you afterward*. England's neutral position is contemptible.
