WASHIjrOTOK, uar 3,i?ea. THK NATIONAL TAX BILL. The Senate 1 inance Committee are making such ?l"w progress in their tinkering ui>ou the Tax bill, that it will probably be reported without material umealment Upon soma of the moat iui| ortant alterations pr?i*>sud the committee, in the abseuce of one of Its members, is at a dead lock, and consequently the amendments fail. An effort will be made in the Senate to sub. stitute an almost totally different scheme of raisiug revenue. The objection principally urged against the House bill is, that it embraces too many subjects of taxation, and renders the collection of the lax infinitely more complicated than is necessary. A general desire is manifested for the simpliilcatiou of the system, and consequent reduction of the number of tax gatherers re quired to execute it. VISIT OF THB PRESIDENT AND MRS. LINCOLN TO THK NAVY YAKD. The President and Mrs. Lincoln visited the Navy Yard this afternoon, to witness some Interesting trials of a breech-loading cannon, invented and patented by parties in Cincinnati. A large number of ladies and gontleinen, including several members or Congress, were present. The first discharge of the piece interrupted one of the President's stories, aftor which the experiments pro ceeded in a satisfactory manner. At the first trial three shots were fired so rapidly that the first struck the water Just as the last one left the gun. OBNBBAL ABKRCROMBIB REMOVED FROM COWANS AT WARRXMTOM JUNCTION. General Abercrembie, lately in command of the troop* at Warren ton Junetion, ha* been ordered to report a^ Fortress Monroe, and General Hart Buff suecoods him. Pome persons here are surprised at the change; but the truth is,that bitter complaints have been made by the officers and soldiers stationed at Warrenton Junction against Genoral Abercromble, that he has regacded the protection of the secessionists In that neighbor hood more than the comfort and health of hU own troops. It la alleged that, while our soldiors wero with* out fresh provisions, and living on scant ra tions, in a swampy, unhealthy locality, they were mado togcard rebel property, instead of con. flucatliig articles fnecoggary for their comfort und health. A rob?l cavalry captain, whom thoy captured in his bed with his uniform lying by his side, his commit. Bion being in his coat pocket, was released. These things may have caused General Aliercrombie to be sent to Fortress Mouroo, where there is a Retiring Board. LBTTKR FROM GENKRAL W. F. SMITH TO MR. MOR RILL, M.

Y<u h:ive offered t<> tho country no evidence In support of your naked assertion.

It ix now my time to speak, and here, face to faco with a bravo foo. I turn hack to you,an assassin, and tell you you must prove your ch irge against roe or make your retraction as pub lic as) the libel: and 1 am certain that, throughout the length anil breadth of this great land, every m uily heart w 1.1 ray I havo demanded no more than I have a right to compol.

( rain, Is the name of an adventurer who rame to this country several wooks since, bearing letters purporting to have been written by a general who reived under the Archduke Maximilian, recommending him to Karon Hulae mann, Austrian Miiiicier, and desiring blm to credit the Count with four hundred dollars por month He succeeded in deceiving Chevalier Hulfemunn and all the other foreign diplomats. In (ho New York Hotel he gave a grand entertainment, to which the Belgian Minis tor Mid other distinguished gentlemen were Invited,and It is said, run up a bill of eight hundred dollars at that In tel.

The Count was Yery generous with bis ra uey snd sttenllou to wounded soldiers, and won the goed opinion or all who hneamo acquainted with him. Baron Hulsemann, who has cnhed hie drafia to the amount of Hixitnn hundred dollars, wrote te Europe some inquiries about him, and by the last eteamvr learned .that the letters presentod by the Count were fergenee, slid that Maximilian'iad no >uch general as the one wIiom signature was used.

Thore saema to hare been very recently a ^warming to Washington of counterfeiters, bogus money * hovers, pickpockets nnd burglars. Some of the counterfeits are fo cleverly exoonted as to ' t!.e most expert banker*, many of whom have k?en victimised within the past week by b >gc.s Qve dol lar notes or the Bull'* lload liuik, Now York illy.

The weather to-day Is moro like the lnt of March than anything else that I can ounipare it to. A oold northeast wind blows off the bay, aocompanlod with a drenching rain. It has become a in Uter of considerable doubt whether there Is ever any clear weather in this poor, miserable section of the Union. Tlie troops httvo com* meoced to look upon It as a ''inaller of course," and con sequently to be expected. The Provost Marshal set to work yeslerdaf and cap tured all the "dugouts" and Bklflb belonging to the origi nal Inh ibitants of this place. For some some time past they htivo been suspccted of giving information to the enomy, through the medium ol' these auxiliaries, and a few evenings slnco a skiff, containing two m o, In a (logout, was soeu endeavoi ing to pass our tine of pick-t boats; they were immediately taken to headquarters, and, on l>oius< questioned us to their objcct Ingoing fo far out, said that they "wore looking around." As the Marshal could not see any particular reason for their "looking around," their crait was confiscated, and the men sent homo, with u strict injunction to remain theie. They are rery strong Union people (f). The reb'-ls have long boosted of their crack shoot ing, but since tho arrival of a ro^imoat wo meet them on tlicir own ground in rosjioct to sharp >.h ooting.

Heavy musketry and cannonading wore heard near Yorktown last night. The United Mtato* tpuab ml* Se ba?o and M.-i*at:iti?i participated In it.

Will the .Secretary of War ferret nut the oUicial who disregards his |ieremplory orders liy is suing passes to curiosity hunters and panic breeders? Let us have no more of it. Lioutouant Colonel HalllJay, of tho Ninety .ninth New York rOKlment, ha*been removed from the ooramandof Fort Wool, and Major Nixon, of the saiuejrogimeut, has ?ucc sided him. Ihe cause nf this change Is known only to those who efleeled It. I.ieuteu.iat Colonel Hallidny, while in command of the fort, discharged his duties ? ,th sn Impartiality, akill and snergy that can lie sui |<assed by uo ollicer lu this department. He is a gradual* of the J'oly technic school ef Prussia, and as an urtillei isi has no superior la the Department of Virginia. His withdrawal from the command of Kort Wool is looked upon as a most Inopportune step st this particular time. A New York regiment, recently informing garr'eon duty in the fortreee, were peremptorily ordered to quit the fort and go into oamp. It is alleged that their offei. e was the love of strong drink. A few nights ago the guard broke into the Ordnance Department store and stole two barrels of whiskey, upon which they got beastly drunk. Hence their pronpt dismissal by tieu. Wool. Brigadier General Clarence Seward, nephew of the Se cretary of State, and dr. Venderpoel, Surgeon General of New York (Hate, arrived here to-day from Baltimore. They departed this afternoon fer Oamp Scott, near York town. The object of thoir visit, I learn, Is to look after tho Interests of tho soldiers from tho Kmuire State.
