UBKSBAf. If RAO libit ASSCPP-'G CuxaaXD A# feUS BltlOADE. At the formal receptid.'t.1? General 8umner's division, tbla afternoon, of Brigudtei General Thomas Francis Meagher, wtioee appointment has bead recently continued by the Senate, the Irish brigade made a gr.snd demonstration. Tito General had refused to assume conl'tupd #r the brigade until after his appointment was confirmed. Since those Irish regiments went on the Virginia side of the Potomac, and Joined General Sumner's dit ision, Colonol Nugent, of the Sixty-niuth. has heeii actios Hrimdlor General. At noon to-day Geueral Meagher, accompanied 'by Major Warrington, Captuin Treanor, Dr. Roynolds, of the Eighty-eighth regiment, who is to be Brigade Surgeon; Major O'Neill, commander of the batteries; Cap. tame Hogan and Mctl ihun, and several other artillery officers, loft the Kbbett House, in this city, and rode over the Long Bridge to the camp ground. General Shields Joined the party on the ground. The brigade wag drawn up in lino, on a commanding eminence, a few miles from Alexandria. Whon General M'-aghor and escorts, splendidly mounted, vera riding up the llill, the brigade crowning the brow With bristling bayonets, presented a brilliant appsarappoarance. Ho was received by Colonel Nugent, who rode a cream colored chnrgor. The General and party rode along the line, after which the troops marched in review. The men were in excellent spirits. Each of the regiments looked renmrkab'y well. lhe Sixty third was under command of Lieut. Colonel Fowler. Lieut. Colore! Burke, recsntly of the thirty-seventh New York regiment, who has just I cen appointed Colonol of tho Sixtythird, in place of Colonel Enright, will take command of the regiment to-morrow. Tho Irish (lag and Che Stars and Stripos were carried side by side in each regiment. When General Shields arrivod on the ground the brigade marchod in review again. After tho roview the odicors of tho different regiments come forward and formed a semi circle. Then Colonel Nugont transferred the command of the brigade to General Meagher. Gen. Shields was introduced to tho officers and men, to whom he made a few appropriate remarks. Ho expressed his delight at tho performances be had witnessod. There was material in the men, ho said, to make an oxcelleut brigade, but they required drilling in some indijsqyens ib'e manoeuvres to render them thoroughly efficient on ths battle field. If the officers would handlo it well he would say for the men that the brigade would do honor to the two nations whofg flag they intend^ to support, ??nd whose honor was to some extent COmmme.l to tLelr hands. n? enjoined upon th'm to s?e to it that, so far their conduct was coucerned, neither nation should be disgraced. The troops cheered him enthusiastically. They also gave hearty cheers for General Meagher, followed by cheers for each of the colonels. The troops then returned to their quartors. The Irish brigado will bo held as the reserve of the division. THE BECiritOCirr TREATF. The report made from the Committee on Commerce to' day by Representative Ward is averse to the abrogation of the Reciprocity treaty, but advocates an enlargement of its commercial connections, with a view to render the reciprocity more certain and substantial. It discuisu8 the extent, population, position and resources of the British North American provinces and possessions, together with other questions, iucluding the right of the United States to ajust reciprocity and the flsoal reasons ."for an American or continental system. Tt appears that the value of Canadian productions has Increased twenty per cent by the treaty. While the United States tax Canadian productions $25,000 per annum. Canada, taxes our productions $1,000,000, and also has on unfair system of discrimination against the United States. The report was recommitted for the further action of the committee.

"The brilliant weather to-duy ami the enow not yet having inched, led to a very general turnout of trooi* Across the river. Generals Hancock and Ma tiudale had each a brigade drill. It has been Hourly three weeks since there has been such a turnout of soldiers, the tnnd and woathcr for this time having compelled temporary cessati n of dril's.

Washington, Feb. 6,1802. TDK NATIONAL FINANUM. Mr. Cakuls, (Union) of Va., moved to take up the resolution be offered some- time since iu regard to lint finances of the country. He said ho offered the resolution to call the attention of the Senate to the llna nee* of tin* c-Mintry. The expeuses of the country were now at the rate of fifty millions of dollars a month. Ho (Carllle) had hoped ero this to have had acme plan from the Secretary of the Treasury for the relief of the finances of the uruntry; but the only plan proposed by him is the issue of paper currency. Ho (Mr. Garble) was opposed to uny union of the government and tho banks. He was not willing (hut tue government should be depeuoent on the -banks. If the government depends on an irredeemable paper Issue llnaiirlvl ruin m -'t follow. Ha advocated tho passage of Ins resolution, m- affording a safe and sound basis lor speoio currency.

Mr. Harr.o -C.'" r"*d "xtr*<'t" f m the sprecox, of Sinatura Johnson, Wiluioi and buuhj*.", "d contended that It would bo a dangerous precedent to set?to tW*' a Senator without being guilty. The cage had not a fC" railed, either in that of folk or Breckinridge. But the question a as already battled, and he (Mr. H irris) did not choose to discuss it any longer. But there was a matter somowhatcnoneelod with the subject cursorial to himself. An attempt had besn uia !e by the Legislature of his dtatn to teauimuu< his stul'eiicd corpse. Legislative inatruclioi s were a specious emanation of the w II nigh fatal doctrine of State right*. What would bo the retult of the discussion in the L giol.Uure of Hew York lie (Mr. Harris) did not know, and ho far as the voto there on the resolution Instructing him wluit to do was concerned, It was not important that he should know. The circumstances under which the attempt had been made at his (Mr. Harris') resuscitation was extraordinary. Nineteen of his colleagues in the House, and his personal and political friends had solicited the legislature of New York in order to save the State, and, perhaps, its humble representative from dishonor, to instruct him in regard to the vole he (Mr. Harris) should give on this question. Ho made no complaints against his colleagues for their course, and could nccouut for it iu no way but for the atmosphere which surroundB the Senate. On a question of political expediency or national policy ho (Mr. Harris) would listen to the l.ug.slature, but on a question of l ight and w-iong he (Mr. Harris) was only rospoaslblo to hs conscience and to God. He would allow no man nor body of men to intervene between him and his conscience. On an e.ecutivo or judicial question a Legislature has no right to interfere or be heard. Mr. 1)avl?, (Union) or Ky., repllod to Mr. Harris, defending liis (Mr. D.avi3') owu course. Mr. t o mat, (rep.) of Conn., said that the Senator from Indiana hud read two resolutions passed by a meeting in Indiana. He (Mr. Fo. ter) asked to have tlio other resolutions, passed by that meeting, read by tlio Clerk. Mr. 1'iakck, (upi>.) of Md., objeitod to the reading of the resolution by the (lork. Mr. K' Sikk thought that all the resolutions ought to be read to show the connection between them. He (Mr. Foster) then reml the resolution*. They d< p. lore the state to which the country hat been reduced by sectionalism; reaffirm tho princi|dos of the democratic party; declare that the present state of the country ig due to the agitation of tho slavery question by funaticHand to the sectional platforms ado;dud by the Hulfato, Philadelphia and Chicago Conventions; declare thai the republicans, in rejecting all offers of compromise, assumed a fe.irful responsibility, and that they havo shown their utter inability to carry on the goveiaineut in its difficulty. The resolutions concludo by denouncing the plan for tho emancipation of the slaves, and by dououueing tho suspension of the writ of habeas corpus. Mr. Bright, (opp.) of Ind.,said that he had only read two of the resolutions here, because some of the others contained language which possibly would bo deemed ofrouslve by Some Senators, but laying aside all that, he (Mr. Brignt) ccuTd endorse the resolutions in all their length and depth. Mr. Pavaru, (opp.) or Del., spoke at some length in favor of Mr. Bright, contending that by (Mr. Prig") could not, ftoiB all thy cffviuaaUtlide* ai thl time th# letter wag written, believe tnero was to be war, and consequently there could not have boen any Intention to do wrong In wnti2? simple ijHjr ff JHir9: duction which he did. Mr. Bayard then referred to the speeches which had been made here with something like partisan feeling, and to the caucusses which had been held in regard to this case. Mr. Sherman, (rep.) of Ohio, said that he never knew thero were any caucusses, and did not believe any had beeu held. Mr. Brownikc, (rep.) of 111., said it was the first intimation he had ever beard of any ClBCne?, and wanted to know whore tho Senator (Mr. Bayard) got his information. Mr. Bavard said he cculd not tell. Mr. Bright satcl he would relieve the Senator (Mr. llrowr.ing). on tho first day of tho session ho called on hi.i colleague (Mr. Iano) and asked him to introdncoa resolution In regard to this euro. Afterwards bis colleague had told him that his ca?o had been subject to a caucus. Mr. laws, (tap.) of Ind.,said at the (list of the session he had told his colleague (Mr. Bright) ho should feel it his (Mr Lane's) duty to introduce a resolution of general Inquiry in repard to his (Mr. Bright';-) 00001. Afterward;!, at a caucus on another subject, his ease was spoken of, but there was no caucus in this case. Mr. Bayard said that he was now sat'sUei that no caucus had boon held, but that party spir t had entered into this case, and as that was tho case he bad no hope for justice. Mr. Brigbt said?Perhaps what he should say had hi>lff>r li&vn hnpn usit) uii'i Km flunUud thoi .ItiHi. clary Committee for the favorable report which had been matin through one of their number (Mr. Foster), who had given way under unprecedented pressure. The res: 003 might be satisfactory to that member, but he doubted whether they would be to ovcn-oandcd justice. His main object in speaking now was to place himself right on the peg# of history; if he could succeed in that he would be content. He was amazed at the party spirit exhibited against him, and the numeroua accusations brought against him. He might with propriety havo asked for counsel; but conscience having said that he had done, written and voted for nothing inconsistent with his prerogative as nil American Souator, he had not claimad that right; and he did not regret the not doing so, He should not try to shield himself from partisan blows, but challenged investigation into all the acts of his |>ohtIcal life. Ho had been honored by the State of Indiana thrice by a seat in the Senate of the Cubed, Stales, and had been in the confidence of tho Senate an I had re ceived the highest honor they had to give. He said this, in answer to those who questioned his antecedents, and Bought to prejudice him in the minds of bis uo .nt v men. He referred them to the letter ho had written to Mr Jefferson Davis, and to thu character given him by Mr. I.iucoia, who had known him for many years, and who always considered him a worthy man. He contonded that that wus a simple letter of introduction, and its address had no intention to recognise the right of Mr. Davis to any title: it was only a mere cunrteey, and only followed the example of others on the tlcor >'f the Senate. The irenator from Maine, in bis assault on him had sa;d his address was like a courtier. If ihe .-enator hud kuowrc him better he would have known that was not one of his faults. If ho bad been sy cophantic ho might have got vt tcs; but all he asked was for justice. Whert tho letter was writteu ho did* not holievo theie would be war. He referred to tho President's inaugural, the acts of thu Dost Ofi'co Department nu 1 tho Secretary 01 State's despatches to show that en tho 1st of March it was not believed generally that ill. re w odd he war. He did not believe there would bo war lilt tho tall of Sumter. After this there was wur, and he should not bnvo given the letter to Davis, lie had not tho most distant recollection of having written a letter to Davis or other loiter of introduction to Captain Franklin. It had boon argued agaiust linn th it ha bad said he Would do tlic same ogam. Ho would ropeat it, and ho mi-anl it. thnt if he believed there was to bo no war, he would gr. o stn h a lottcr to an old friend. If ho had had the least glcain of sir pic Ion that there would hu war he should net have given tho kit -r; but no one who li-o.-tied to thu debate he.e will suppose that tno letter really has anything to do with the attack on him. Dot ?>e was con sliiered unlit to associate with such patriarchs .n the country s scrv iccusltlie Senator iroin Massachusetts iMr. Sumner) and tho rauiator from New Hampshire (Mr. t'isrk): and even the Senator from Pennsylvania ^Mr. Wilniot . and the So: ator from Tennessee (Mr. Johnson) were uiliicted by his presence burr, us not loyal cuo :gli for thom. Uh, ho must havo degenerated In teu years. In ISftO ho was api>omted on a committee with such men as 1 lay, Webster, Calhoun, Clayton, and used his humiiio flhrls to nmiutalu peace. He hud evur voted for pes no, and i ever glreu a sectional vole. Fvery impulse of his heart wns given to his country, and he yielded to no man in his attachment to it Though his character was aspersed and his loyalty questioned, this did not alienate liiti, llnthi-ikeil thtt'ineniliers of the Judiciary Com mitfee wboeupiiorled Inru, ard guaranteed the pledge of an !ion?rl ln ?rt that tha t'lituri- would give them no ( cm ion to regr?l what they had dona.

Ho h*d not a pari in the movoir.ent fur tho disruption of the government, but he would leave the i-eople to decide tha question. Mr. Trw Kti k, (rep.} of N.

I am disposed to support every measure of flnaucs having for iw object a vigorous prosecution ','f the war and the restoration of the Uuiou upon 'he basis of it? C institution, We must, to attain that end, "rente a currency, croate s public debt, and a scheme of Just taxation, to meot Cfc? requirements of the country. I atrt ready to go as far to estsb tab a Just scheme of taxation as he who dares go fai ther, and to sustain the guv rum&U, in J to keep t.'io a my aud uuvy ado,si. The uitly question is, how can this lie done in a mode least prejudicial to tho people and most oooveni nt to the government f This is tho great question o. the timos, and the ens which Hen at tho foundation of all others, and on its solution depend* our success in me tling the present em rgoncy. We lay the taxes neceasai y for the support oi the government, a id we negotiate loans to raise funds, and we provide a currency for tho purpose of holding these mmons amounts. ThoCommilU-cof Ways and Meuns presume us with a bill providing a scheme of raising money, nnd promises us a secondunetoo mploto the scheme. It proposes a tax of one hundred aud tlfty millions, and the House is called ujion to pledge itself to raise It. But how are we to raise it? The committee does not inform us. Thuy propose a curroncy, by issuing Treasury notes,under authority of tho bill ;and by another bill it is proposed to create a national eurienry, based upon the public securities, and to lay a tax. They propose a bill which issues Treaeury notes and ratifies them to be funded tu public stocks. The committee should hnvo started from a different point. They have commenced at the wrong end. The lust proposed measure Should be the first, and tiio first the last. They have be gun at the top of the building, and they call upon us to build on with thorn to the bottom. They ought, first, to have reported n tax bill, laying a broad foundation for taxation, upon which the whole public crodit reposes. They should have first determined I thut as the first aeries of measurea an tbnt ?. mivht hn able to Judge what |>articii^tr provision is neceseniy ami what is ujl necessary ia thu particular measure. What is the proposition.' It is to issue 0110 hundred millions of Treasury notes, without interest, payable at the plcaaure of tho t ailed States, and to he received for all public dues and receivable for all dura from the government by creditors of the goverument, the?# notes to be declared to bo money and legal tender for all public and private debts over whole tho land.the same tube funded in public securities, bearing six i>er cent interest, this interest to be paid on the same promlsos of the government. Those are the principles of the bill. Will It bring relict' to the country, and is it consistent with the constitution? These are grave ini|uirlos. Let us soe, then, if the scheme is consistent w it h the constitution. I approve of the general scheme of public credit, which, I believe, will bring relief to the country and restore the public credit; but there are features mid details In this bill which I cannot assent to. The legal tender Clause stares us in the face as the most objectionable feature of the bill. This Is a direct violatiou of the constitution, and, iu my belief, entirely irreconcilable with that instrument lu any form. I listened with great interest to tne debatej utwn this subject, In the hope that I might heal1 something to ctungc my SVinits. but in vain. Now, upon what hutUurlty d'ws-.thil committee act? The Attorney General eny? (hat IV<3 !c?3l fender clause is pet proh.bjted by the constitution, and upon this key nolo the supporters of the bill have lun&d the!? 57|uiuetrf3 in J^p'port of it. with occasional reference to the general jCVere of the government for self preservation. To lay that a certain power Is in the constitution because tit is nowhere in it expressly prohibited, is to overturn the whole structure of the government. It was no Argument to say that the power embraced in (he bill is not prohibited: and 1 am surprised that the first law officer of tho government would risk his official reputation by asserting such a doctrine. Tho government has no power to declare anything a legal tender but gold and silver coin. Government is not expressly prohibited from making anything else a legal tender, but there is at the same time no power guaranteed to it to make anything else a loyal tender. Tpon the argument adopted hy thu friends of the bill, they might us well, as bus been already said here, declaro bided of leather legal tender. To make these Treasury notes a legal tender for private debts is taking my property and appropriating it to iny creditors. This act is "in Itself opposed to and "in contravention of the constitution, which declares that no man shall l>o deprived of his property except for a criminal act and through due process of law. Having no doubt of the unconstitutionality of the bill, I must vote against it. But there is no necessity to violate the constitution?no necessity for public purposes. The public oredit dees not require it, and the public credit will not be sustained by it. I Implore the House to arrest the course proposed by (he measure, and to adopt a con rit.ituttunai mode 01 mecr.ng tne present emergency. The measure Is as inexpedient aa it is unnecessary and unconstitutional. It is a direct declaration of national bankruptcy. It is saying to the world that this government is unable to meet its obligations, and is forced to compound with ita creditors at a discount. The governmout has promised to pay in gold, and you say its creditor must accept something lees t turn gold. You compel him to trust to promises not worth ninety cants on the dollar. The scheme is disgraceful to the country. Public credit reposes on public confidence. It is a thing which cannot bo compelled by law. Individuals who pay most promptly enjoy most credit; so it is with governments. By this provision you discredit your own security, end declare that it is not worth what yon first represented-it to be. It strikes down pubiic oonfldonco, and destroys public credit. It is a system of repudiation and forced loans in their worst forms. Not only will it destroy floaneial credit, but it will giva a stain to the national character ? hich it will take ages to wipe out. The experienen of the world is against the Idea of attempting to attach to paper the value of gold and ailver. Tha law cannot impart an artificial value to that which po s no real value. The law cannot convert paper into gold. Paper is only valuable when it represents gold. Take away the gold, and the paper la worthless; and all the laws that can bo pawed will not give a par value to It. Issue these notes, and prices will rise beyond the specie standard as the notes fall below it. The result Is Inevitable. All experience prove* it, and no laws can make it otherwise. All existiug indcbieine.-.a was created on the oporto standard, and on condition that they would be settled In gold or Ittvw. Tn cannot estimate the amount of the government indebtedness payablo in gold and silver,and yet by this bill you repine all this to be settled in paier which yon at ilio same time declare to bs worth les < than gold By one stroke of tho pen you strike one-tenth of that indebtedness out of ex isteice.

Mr. Ilotrroir, (rep.) of Ohio, said that if tha bill should pass, which ho tinped it would rot, It would be a departure from the financial system o" the country, ir it do pans, wo will inaugurate ajp w tiuenclalora I11 the history of the Irgls'ation ertlie country. Then we Illustrate the truth of the saying, 'Old things pass away and all things become new.'' We will thus bo driven to a scheme against ell pant experience, and against all our notions oa to right or wrong in matter a of policy. It ia eald not to be a matter of choice, but or necessity.

A tax hl'l end a lo.in should bare been pre.oof I aide by side. It is no fault of the committee that this was not done. The labor and the reaponsibtliilea of tho c mmittee aaragrea't, and time was not allowed for such a work.

Mr. Wriuht, (Union) of Pa.,Raid that he had voted to sustain the President in suspending the writ of habeas corpus, in declaring cortain ports blockaded, and for other extreme measures justified by the public necessities. Now thoy were called upon, according to tho torms of this bill, to declare it constitutional and legal to make money out of paper. He (Mr. Wright) did not feel justitied in going so far aa to cast his vote fofanj such measure. He would vote for taxation to the uttormost limits. We have the means, the proporty and the money, llut the issue of the paper money now propesed would bring upon the country worse ruin thau tho rebels havo already thrown upon it. The notes authorized by this bill are payable at no place or time, and are made n legal tender in payment of all debts. He argued that according to the coustitutiou they could not make anything but gold ftud silver a legs! tender. The principal substance of the gentleman's remarks was in support ot Mr. Pondleton's argument* upon the unconstitutionality of the proposed scheme. These argumonu had not been <jftfwQrfd, and they stood from first to last bjfor? the committee uncontrovertcd and uncontrovertible. This is a measure of necessity?it is \o darbre. that lJu administration la jM_J$uai to the occasion. I will not voleforaEy measiire wn JtiVoT with that djsclaratlon going to the country; therefore I am opposed to the blfi lira I reported, and advocate as u subftltutethe bill or the gentleman from Vermont (Mr. Morrill.) Tho first bill is calculated to shock und outrage t ho moral feeling of the country. People will never agree to lend their money, or agree to invest, one hundred dollars, with the consciousness of getting a receipt for it at the rate of eighty five or ninoty cents for the dollar. It is not safe for a legislative body to initiate sueh a swindle as this, it will not do for us to set an example of laxity in morals. The government has, within tbe last five or six years, rlande-dinoly taught the leSSM of corruption, and the public morals are already as much corrupted aa is safe. But solemnly declare here, by this bill, that wrong is right, and these views will extend to limits you cvnnot calculate. I, for one, will have no part or parcel in s legislative act of this kind. Confusion end uncertainty will extend in relation to the value of all exchange articles, end ws would never know how much we have, or how much ws want, for want of a proper value standard. The depreciation or a paper currency Increases from day to day and from hour to hour, and all the legislation of Congress cannot make anything but what it U. Under tho operation of this billexports will docrea?eand imports increase. Agricultural interests will be injured to an incalculable extent. Our necessities will tbeu compel us to Import gold to pay tbe duties. We will owe to foreign countries for the excess} imports superinduced by the pressure at home. Government will sutler by the Inflation of prices, and the omnipotence of Cougress w ill fail to aflbrd a remedy. It would be even better at the prosnot moment to go to the Ravings hanks of Now England and say to them, "Fork over the eighty millions in your ooffers and we will give you our bonds." The advantage would be in this, that you could measure your Indebtedness; which you can never know by acting according to the provisions or ion 11111. iv i* u grrmr acinu upprer.uu which you contemplate, and the front bulk of your people, the man who earn tneir bread by tha sweat of their hrowa, will be the chief end indeed the only sufferers. I believe the Morrill bill in a step in thn right diroction. With a tax bill the people wilt see upon what they have to depend, and they will give all the money that U needed. They will then place faith in the ability of the government to put down this unholy rebellion; and that la the great thing needod. The committee here rose. The general debate on this hill 13 to cease on the expiration of two hour* after the House shall again take it up. This only refora to the general debate. In committee debate will be resumed on the amendments, limited to Ave minutes. Adjourned. THE GRAND PRESIDENTIAL PARTY.

Ac, Ac., Ae. Wamuhoto.v, Feb. 6,1*6:2. The exhibition of the republican court of America at tha White IIou?e lh!v c\ ening was a truly hrillUut array of fa-hion, boauly and manliness. It was not a lotree diintanlr, as the would bo knowiDg ones have styled it. The parlors and the East llouin were comfortably crowded. Such a display of elegance and ta.to aud loveliness has perhaps natrr before been witnessed within the walle of the Wblto House. The guests began to nrrlvo about nine o'clock, the hour named In the cards of Invitation. Mre tlytb# carriage way was lined with the equipages of Mintstora and Generals and citizens, and a constant stream poured into the dressing rooms, and'from Ihctn into the East Room. Soon after nine o'clock Mr. and Mrs. Lincoln took their po3ltlou near the centro of the East Room, anil bopun to receive the congratulations of their guests. The President wore a bland and pleated expression, lie greeted the guests with courteous warmth, and chatted familiarly with many whom he recognised as old friends. He was attired in a plain suit of black. Mrs. Lincoln received the company with graceful courtesy. She was dressed in a magnld cent white aatln robe, with a black flounco half a yard wido, looped with black and white bowj, a low coreage trimmed with black lace, and a bouquet of cape myrtle on her bosom. Her headdress was a wreath of black and white flowers, with a hunch of cape myrtle on the r.ght Htao. Ill* 0017 (.Tiinniciii* nnr< caiauv, ourringe brooch tod bracelots, of peart.

It is impossible to enumerate the company, or evOu to particularize the dazzling beauties who graced the sconrf. The supper room was thrown open at half past eleven o'clock. Tho President and diplomatic corps were Urst introduoed. The supper room presented a coup d'aril of dazzling splendor, fruits and (lowers, and blazing lights, and sparkling crystal, and inviting confections were overywhero. A long table extended tho whole length of the mlddlo of the room. Sldo tables, capable of accommodating five persons each, were ranged around the sides. All groaned with good things to tempt the appetite of an epicure. Upon the centre of the principal table rose a magnifl. cent vase, five feet high, filltd with natural flowers, wreaths of which gracefully twined about tho sides and base of the rase. On either side, equid.slant from the central plateau, and prominent amidst the profusion of p>ramlds and decorations, were smaller vases similarly filltd and ornamented with flowers. Prominent among tho decorations and candy ornaments wero the following:? A representation of a Uniled States r.teara frigate of forty guns, with nil sails set, and the Dag of the Union dying at tho main. A representation cf the Hermitage. A warrior's helmet, supportsd by cup'.ds. A Chinese Pagoda. Double cornucopias, resting upon a shell, supported by mermaids, and surmounted by a crystal star. A rustic pavilion.

The lateness of the hour precludes a further description. * THE CASEjQF COLONEL CORCORAN. Corcoran Demonstration In Boston. Boston, Feb. 5,1882. There was an immense and enthusiastic Corcoran demonstration in Faneull Hall to-night. The old Cradle of Liberty was crowded to Its largest capacity. Mayor Wighlman presided, supported by tlxty Vies President!. The Mayor rceited the circumstances attending the capture and imprisonment of Colonel Corcoran, and lamented that by the act of our government that noble man and the hostages with him ware now imprisoned in a felon's cell, because we insist upon holding the prisoners of the Savannah as pirates, and not as prisoners of war. The now threat upon the lives of Colonel Corcoran and the others proved that this meeting was timely. He denounced in indignant term* the tnfamoue demand made by Jeff. Davis that the Urtdga burnors of Missouri Mho aid be placed upon the same footing with the hostages of Colonel A. O. Brewster, and made a stirring speech. He said it was pitifully said that these men should, by the action of the federal government, be held to eke out their lives tn more than an Austrian prison. The President could do no more magnanimous set, nons more popular, than to take measures tor thsir immediate release. ITon. Benjamin Hsllott sent a letter, In which he claimed that the watchword should be, "Free Corcoran, free Wilcox and the other colon?l9." There wore hopes for them now, for since the call for this meeting 1 the Hatteras prisoners had been released from Fort Warren. Wby not now send Barron back to' release Colonel Corcoran? He contended tbal tbe Savannah prisoners wore not pirates by any law of war. Mr. llalltu quoted a private letter, which stated that the hostages were confined In a cell seventeen feet by eleven: that for two months those brave men never saw the light of day, and yet they have | never lost their Christian fortitude, nor suffei ud the Orel complaint to be made to tbe government. The exchange of prisoners was no concession. The Piesidt-nt could not do an act mora humane than to talc* immediate measure* for the releaae of the houtage colonel*. Judge Russell said In time of war be knew not bow to criticize the government; ho only knew bow to support It. He trusted tbe government would act more promptly for tbe releeae of Colonel Corcoran, and bis feilow hostages, and the country would onco more see that galunt man at the bead of bia regiment, yen at tbe head of a brigade, an Irish brigade, doing deed* worthy of the Held of Kontenoy. Tills bratro man was takon prisoner b-cause there was one tuilitaiy raovemcut he did not know hew to obey?the order to retreat. He asked tbe release of Colonel Corcoran na a proper tribr.lo of gratitude and jurtire for the "ervicee rendered by the adopted citizens in their hour of national peril. Hon. John C. Tucker naked whv it was that IloVon called a meotlng for Col. Corcoran's release, and his own a most native State had not ? Ho would any it w as Dot the fault of New York.

He wo.ild ssy, however, act with great prudence, and not b'.amo tho government: it might be ilial these mighty measures were perfected for there release. He could not have tb* meeting act hastily. In the name of Irishmen, he said, let ca not show Ingratitude, and call only for the release of Onion I Co c nan, but for nil the lioetagea with him. i hey are all in the sa ue plight. Thoru is no Irishman, no Yims.ro now. They wt.l hear the same groans if they die, th smo hospital.
