Ail interesting debate upon the Treasury Note bill took I'in> u in the Commit teo of the Whole in the House. Mr. Valiaiuli|;ham, of Ohio, drew a terrible picture of the re eults of the llnAtx ial scheme presented in the bill, but his speech attracted little attention. Mr. Hooper, of Mu8?a vhusette, followed, and immediately a large circle of members gathered around him and listened closely to bis ?... 1. r _ .|,? kill U. IWn.. knu finance all Lis life, and Las written some able pamphlets upon the subject. Hie familiarity with the theino, and his position as an able exi>onent of the financial policy of the Committee of Ways and IfcaDs, attracted the otten. lion ef the thinking meu of the Houae. Mr. Hooper's speech is considered a clear exposition of the views of tho Treasury Department on tlie financial question. The Secretary, in a letter to the Committee of Ways and Moans, says the gonoral provisions of the bill Mem well adapted to ihi end proposed; that tbo pro vision making the notes a legal tetidor was, doubtless, well considered by the committee, and their reflections had conducted him to tho same conclusions. He fell great fears as to making anything hut gold and silver a legal tender, but owing to the large expenditures and tho bank suspensions, the provision is indispensable. The Secretary has suggested amendments providing against counterfeiting, and directing the manner iu which the notes are to executed. The Secretary addressed a Dote to Mr. Span tiling today, in which he says:?"Immediate action is of great importance. The Treasury is nearly empty. I have been obliged to draw for the Inst instalment of the No rember loan. So soon as it is paid I fear the banks generally will refuse to receive the Cnited Staler Treasury notes. You will see the necessity of urging the bill through without delay The Chairman of tlio Ways and Mean* Committee, Mr. Htevens, will emieavor to bring the House to a vote on the Treasury bill on Thursday. TUB PROPOSED rax OH tei.koraphtc despatches. The result of the examination re ently by the telegrai h interest sh iws that the number of messages transinitted over all the lioea during the past year was 2,800,000,fielding a total revenue or $1,62*2,000. Should t'ongrcs- in the new tax bill impose three cents on etch message, a tittle over $81,000 only would be reuli/ed freen that Ore aad a half per cent on the ag g legale amount of business. The representatives of telegraphic interests now here li*v< suggested to the Committee of Ways and Means their teadiiiesa to pay a tax on their messages, and thus contribute to the support of the government. DII.ATOKINKPM OP CONORE88 AND OK THE COMMIT'JKK OP WAYS AND MP.AKO. Consternstiou prevails in the departments, and among those who are anxious that the war should be carried on with win. r ur.,1 th,il Hnnn.-lnl ......tlUo. . . .St..I.I .....I. unimpaired,at the shameful apathy of Congress in ielation to tbc wants of the country. Pay after day | a-scs mtbout the passage of a currency bill, although the truth of the declaration of Mayor Opdyke, in his recent admirable letter to Secretary Chase, ia everywhere acknowledged, that, "unless the heavy floating debt of the government shall be paid wtth reasonable promptitude, and its rapidly accruing liabilities provided for, it wi 1 soon he lonud difficult to obtain supplies for thu army at any price.1' Tho maintenance of the credit and honor of tbo government are at slake; the most ordinary deb:s , are left unprovided for, and distress prevails, which a ; single d ay of energetic action at the capital would re 1 move yet nothing is done. While the President, the , different branches of government, land the Command) rI intbief are straining every norvo to ilo their duty : while the army is in the highest degree of efficiency, and almost superhuman iff i ts a e < "being made to push our troop9 forward, in spile <f the tarrible state of the weather, the majority rf the repre ' sentativesof the people scctn utterly mindless of their i duty, and bent upon opposing every obstruction in tlwlr 1 j*.wor to the patriotic course of the administration. It j scarcely admits of a doubt that tlic radicul faction , under I pr-'text of Investigating minor abuses, are bent upon I ?o hampering the government, as to create discourage | incut and discontent among the |>eople, and fruetrule the I great work of restoring the integrity of thr I'nlou. ' The Commit toe of Ways and Means hive delegated ! their labor on I lie tax bill to a subcommittee, composed j ?l Messrs. Morrill, Hooper ami others, who scorn not to I have r>'*< lied i: single prntical point in their labor*. It ' Is understood that they w ill mil ri'|Kirt to the whole comI m>ttee for somo time yet,and n bill will scarcely lie printed before the lit of March. It wili then have to ' l?? discussed, section by section, and it is not probable j that any measure will be passed before the 1st of Apr il, I or even later. Meanwhile, every day's delay Is at l tonded Willi grave danger to the public credit, and ( those gentlemen are lullj aware of the fact. From every I part of the North and West, liberal taxation is called for, t and the people are w iiliug to be burdened to the extent < I ! two hundred million? per annum. The establishment of I national bntii on the p'nn proposed by Secretary Chase t In he teport is also culled for, but no hill on the subject J 1- yet leady to be repot ted. In fact everything Is at a stand still, and tlie financial pros| eet is gloomy and I cheerb ss.

Itaf feveristioere in reference to foreign affairs that wot noticeable yesterday auiI Haturday is greatly abated, although lbo impression still prevails that England moans mischief, and is only waiting an opportunity to engage ia some hostile demonstration towards tbis country Whatever inav be Ihe tenor of the foreign journals, which are industriously prompted by secession inrlu ences. ihe tone of the official depatcbes reads entirely different. 1 have been assured to-day, at the State Department, that at no time siuce the com mencement of this adm.nistration have tbo official desiwtches been so entirely friendly in their character, nor the relations between this government and the Trench and English Ministers hero so perfectly cordial as at present. K the extracts published from the English newspapers, indicating u hoc tile spirit, reflect the temper or the English people, they certainly do not correspond with the official avowals of tli? English government. The Trent difficulty is absolutely concluded, and up to this time lliore has been no intimation whatever from official (sources of any other subject of Bcrioue controversy between the two governments. One thing is certain, if England should be determined to force a war upon the United States in the pre sent emergency. she can do ao only by committing a palpable wrong, and outraging all the principles for which she lias hitherto cmu-ndod, aud all the prece dents she has herself established. The administration intends that (lie United States shall do only right, and whether peace or war be the issue, all the world w ill know that we are in the right. MOHK ABOUT MR. 8KWAKh'tt POLICY IN HKLATION TO TIIK CAPTURE OP KARON AND SI.IDK1.I.. The article in to day's Hkiiai.o, respecting the manner in which both tho people of Great Britain and this coun try were deluded, in rob,linn t<> many points connected with the diplomatic history of the Trent affair, attracts much attention. Tiiero are more intricate phases of the wb'de transaction, how over, that have yet to bo laid before the public. The particulars of the capture of Messrs. Mason and Slide)! wore received in this city on the 16th or 17th of November. On the evening of one of llicsc two days, Mr. Reward was waited on by at least one op his colleagues In the Cabinet, who strongly urged the illegality of the seizure, and suggested the propriety of Lhe immediate surrender of the two gentlemen. This view of the case was, however, scouted by the Secretary of State. The President would undoubtedly havo also preferred that they should be given up; but, confiding in Mr. Seward's statesmanship, allowed him to have his own way in the conduct of She matter, without the formality, even, of a Cabinet decision. A few days later, two prominent political personages from New York were entertained at dinner by the head of the State Department, and the opinion was unanimously pronounced that the rebel ambassadors ought to he retained, and that the lieople of the loyal States would never )?erinlt their being relinquished. By the 30th of November, however, Mr. Seward seems to hove begun to ontertain fears tl>at 3 storm might he brewing in Europe, of which our citizens could not,jot their then excited state, comprehend the portent. He resorted, therefore, to t" bodge." Ho wrote the " private and confidential " letter to our Minister at the Court of St. James, which, in case of dire necessity, might make his intentions on the subject, from the very beginning, appear more peaceful than it is proliable they were. He trusted, however, that -the publication of tbat letter would never be needed, and that the prevalence of moderate counsel* in the British Cabinet \voul<! leave liim the glory of sanctioning an act of great daring, and transmit his name, in connection with it, to an admiring posterity. The last stage of the aiTair show* that Mr. Seward, in the surrender of Messrs. Mason and Slidell, was also at variance with some of the moat sagacious and farsighted of his colleagues. It was strongly urged that as the raise step had been committed, in opposition to tho better judgment of the President, of not giving up the prigine'i at once, the best way of repairing the mistake would bo itot to aa,uitnr. in the datutud of Ungtand, Out to yieUt to the proper and frit,uily vemon*tranc*t of France. As tho notes of Karl ltuseell and M. Thouvenel were, in fact, received utmost simultaneously, it would liave beeu an act of graceful deference to our old allies, the French people, with whom we hvve always boon in perfect accord on the subject of neutral vessels, for Xlr. So ward to have expressed regret at a departure from principles that, for over fifty yours, had guided the two nations And given up tho prisoners at tho Kmperor's gctioroii^ and unsolicited arbitration, A note to Lord Lyons could have followed, containing ail needful apologies, and explaining that it would be impossible for tho United .States to act in opposition to the wishes of the French governiTi*nL in ho iinnortant h. mutter- Mr S#?x*?r.i i ? course, however, which was not so well calculated to conciliate France. On llie 27th January Colonel Frank Blair introduced tho following joint resolution in the House of Represents lives, in relation to the interposition of the government of France in the matter of the seizure of the Trent and the arrest of the four passengers, which will probably bo imported on by the Committee on Foreign Alliiiis and lolly discussed within a few dnys. It includes the ac knowlcdginenl due from this country to Napoleon 111. for his part in the transaction:? Wbe er.s.tlio government of the Kmperor of the French, through 11.

The wusc course which is being pursued by Mrs. Lincoln, in returning to the customs of the early days of the republic, in her manner of receiving visiters, is applauded by all excepting some few envious individuals wboaie unable to procure iuvitationa. It is fully lime that festivities at the residence of iho President of the United Hates should cease to he infested by crowds of individuals. neither whose manner, habits nor antecedents entitle thc-m to a place in respectable society. 11 cannot he expected, crowded as Washington is, that every candidate for olHce, every petty placemonger, every contract seeker, every "piidiiunc, whose time hangs heavily on his hands of an evening, should feel entitled as one of the "great uuternfled,'1 to while away his hours in companionship with the ladies who compose the refined circle of the accomplished ladV ot our excellent I'rgpdent ' It was not soTu the days Of Washington and Adan.s, and li ib w uc iivjjcu mill a cuuilic will IK- inaugutaieil auriDg the present miniiuiKimiion which will make it impossible for it ever to lie so again.

The preparations are upon a scale of the greatest magnificence. KK'K.NKHS OP TROOPS AND NEGLIGENCE OP OFFICERS. A great deal or the sickness among our troops ie attributed by the surgeons to the negligence or ignorance of company officers in making requisitions for proper shoes anil clothing for the men in tbts peculiarly disagreeable weather. There is an abuudancc of every article needed to make the soldiers comfortable, which can be obtained by the simple asking for it in a proper manner. WITHDRAWAL l)F HEDKL XROOTS PROM MANASSAS. From information received from our scouting parties, and from other sources, it is believed that large bodies of rebel troope have been within a few days transferred by railroad from Matiasna*,relying upon the utter ina biiily of the federal army to move against them on account of the impassable condition of the roads.

It seems that many articles intended fur our troops are lying neglected in the depot of tne Sanitary Commission, notwithstanding notice turn been given repeatedly to the olliceiH of the reguneiits to which they were sent to take j 11.em away. When the surgeons of regiments in camp learn that hospital stores have been forwarded, they should at once make requisition for ihcin. At this season of the year they may need them most when lrari>)iorlation is most did.cult. THE Bt'KlAI. PLACR OK SOI.UIKHS.

OUR FORTRESS MONROE CORRESPONDENCE, j ruicraroe muAm it, rcu. i . i The Vnrled Suits bark Geinsbok arrivod licit this i morning from the Southern coast, where she had been 1 :ruising for about two months. She reports that late yesterday afternoon alio pat s-.ed Halleraa Inlet, where a | number of vessels wore descried. Continuous and heavy ' cannonading was beard on Thursday and Friday in i rtie direction of Beaufort and Newbern, N. C., and the otticers of the Geusbok think thai our fleet has attacked the rebels at etihvr or both of the last mentioned points. ft?r tipc.<ar<fa of two hours thc 1 ear of heavy ar'Utny was distinctly htani by the Genisl-C'A, end wot kept up until the vessel got out of bra ring distance. The opinion is that our light dratt gunboats led Die advance and opened the engage* ment, which was probably followed with the laud troops under General Bnrneide. At all events, thc bull is opened, and before this reaches your readers we will undoubtedly have more definite intelligence, either from rebel sources or by the return of one of Gen. Burnside's numerous transports. Thc bark Gemsbok is a good sailer, and, having fa.r winds, made thc passage from Hattcras in a little over eighteen hours, beating the propeller Kasleru Statu by upwards of ten hours. The intelligence thus brought almost directly from the scat of war bus not yet become generally known 011 tire Point, as it has been confided solely to the navy. Among that branch of thc service it has created considerable stir and excitement. By this news it appears that the project of attacking Roanoke Island has been abandoned.and thc capture of the rebels' strongholds at Newborn and Beaufort determined upon by that wise and sagacious leader, General Burnsido. The intelligence of the reported engagement was read to the sailors on beard of the different war vessels in port after the usual morning drill. There being no flag of truce to day, we have no later Intelligence from "Dixie'' an to the capitulation of Savannah and Fort Pulaski. According to the topography of North Carolina in the vicinity of the supposed attack, it is apparent that our vessels, after having reached Hatteras Inlet, divided into two parties?one of them proceeding up the Core Sound, to attack Fort Macon, at Beaufort, in which the blockading vessels stationed at Cape lookout and oo Topsail Inlet undoubtedly participated. On Newborn our fleet must have proceeded up the Neute river, and landed the troops there under cover of the gum of our vessel*. This is the theory advanced by pari ies who are well acquainted with the country and the strongboldH of the rebels on tbesc above, named points. THE NEWS IN WASHINGTON. Waranomm, Feb. 3, 1862.

This art ion of the government w ill give universal satisfaction to all.for the reason that there is now a strong liope of again sueing (be ga'Iant Corcoran and his oth. r heroic comrades soon returned to the arms of their l'ricnds and comrades. This policy will leave no loop hole for the rebels in which to thrust forth any objection as to the release of our Union prisoners, on whom they have placed so inau\ stringent auu cxurui'Biii lu-miuius us to uxcuiiDge. The fuel becoming know n yesterday morning that the prisoners were about being removed, h large crowd of persons \ islted (lie Tombs, ami many personal friends of tho privuteorsmen' congratulated them upon the change which was about taking place in tlieir condition, l'he prisoner! themselves appeared h'glily delighted at the news, and expressed sentiments of pie sure that they should shortly again behold "the land of Dixie," their sympathies for that 'ncality being evidently quite as strong in every respect as heretofore. Among those most enthusiastic in their "patriotic" emotion for the rebel cause were the men of the privateer Harannub. H may bo remembered that this latter vessel was tho one on board of which theuegro Tiilmnun killed the captain, male and one seaman, thereby rescuing the h'avannab 1'roin the hands of the rob. Is and bringing her safe and sound ir.lo this harbor. These men have been confined in the Tombs since their arrival in New York, and the solitude and monotony of their con llnemeiit has lent u careworn expression to their fe.ituics. Several ladies called during the day at the Tombs, bearing presents to the prlvateersmon, for which kindness they expressed themselves quite grateful. The nis where tho prisone s wore confined are well ventilated, spacious and healthy, so that on their return to iheHouth they cannot complain of being conllncd in tobacco warehouses or subjected to the brutality and jesting of an insolent mob.

The public record of our acts is familiar to you, and requires no further explanation at our hands. Of those matters which policy has required to be secret , it would be improper now to speak. This address, therefore, will have uo personal reference. We are well assured that there exists no necessity for us to arouto your patriotism, nor to inspire your confidence. We rc Joice with you to the unanimity of our Slate, in its resolution and lis hopes. And we ara proud with you that Georgia has been "illustrated," and we doubt not wi 1 be illustrated again by hor sons in our holy struggle. The first campaign Is over; each party reals in place, while the winter's snow declares on armistice from on high. The results in the Held are familiar to you, and we will not recount thorn To somo important IVIs we call your attention:? first?1 he moderation of our own giverntnent and the fanatical madness of our enemies have dis|iei'sod all difference- of opinion among our people, and united them lot over in the war of independence. In a few border States a waning opposition is giving way before the stern logic of daily developing facta. The world's history does not give a parallel instance of a revolution beee,| upon such unanimity among tbo people. .Second?Cur enemy hat exhibited aw energy, a pertenrawr and an amount of retourcet which we had hardly expected, and a disregard of constitution and laws which we can hardly credit. The rosult of both,however, is that power, which is the characteristic element ot despotism, and renders it as formidable to its enemies as :t is destructive to its subjects. Tkiid?An immrtue army hat been organi:ld for our ilett) mtiem, which it bein j dittiplined to the unthinking ticlidity of regvlart. Wilh llie exclusive possession of the seas,our enemy is enabled to throw upon the shores of every State the nucleus of on army.
