At the closing of the polls McCleltan led Grant four hundred and thirty-two votes The motion fer the discovery oT the books In Uie case of Clark ts. Bri'>fcB was granted yesterday by Judge Daly, of tbe Court of Common Pleas, aud an order wag issued allowing the plaiutltT an opportunity to examine tbe bo ti of ttie fcsprtu ooce a fortnight during the con tluuam-e of me litigation, witn the uuderstaading, how ever, that no part of the Investigation should be pub lished in tbe newvpapeis Tbe markets were mostly quiet on Saturday?as usual on tbf last day of tbe week; but some articles, neverthe les?. moved quite.fretly. Tlie anticipation of a h gher schedule or duties nes tbe same effect that the reality would hare. All imported commodities have advanced lately, and still favor the seller. Petroleum was dull aud nominal. Cutton w us steady. Groceries all firm. Preparations of the Knemy?Oar Armies and the Weather. The order j ist issued by Lieutenant General Grant, and given in another column, is one of considerable importance and significance. Every day's intelligence renders it more and more certain that the rebels are engaged in the most active preparations for the coming campaign. We have already found them, as far as we have gone, in Florida, Alabama and Mississippi, quite ready to oppose a desperate resistance to our advance, and it need not sur prise us to find them equally ready in other places. Many still argue that the Southern leaders contemplate a great advance of their forces Northward this summer, and a proseou tion of the war on our soil; and certain move ments now in progress in their armies give some color to that argument. But such an ad vance is improbable for many reasons, and if made it is just wb t we ought to desire. Such ad vances have proved so disastrous to tbe South in the past tliat ;h y will venture them with great caution in the future. It is much more pro bable that the movements of Longstreet, as well as the movement of forces from Johnstoa's army, are for the reinforcement of Lee. The announcement that Grant's headquarters would be with the Army of the Potomac has not been lost upon the rebel leaders. It has told them where the struggle is to concentrate its greatest forces, an>l h is given tbem timely noticc to make their preparations for it. It must not be supposed that there is any in activity on our side. We do not hear "the dreadful note of preparation;" but the prepara tion does not go forward any less certainly for that. We mu3t not suppose that it is time our armies were in motion because we get a plea sant day or two now and then. April, variable everywhere, is essentially a stormy month in Virginia. Orders for tbe movement or the Army of the Potomac were gives two or three times early in April last year; but they were counter manded each time on account of sudden storms. In that soft soil, roads apparently good are softened a foot deep in a few hours' hard rata, and tbe movement of artillery consequently becomes impossible. Burnside'j movement to Kelly's Ford should warn us sufficiently of any attempt to operate in Virginia before the weather is definitely settled. And, though ope rations could doubtless be undertaken earlier in Georgia, we ought not to be impatient if they are not, since it may be part of a grand plan that all our armies should move at once. Let the people be patient and wait. After our three yearB of war, a few days, more or less, of apparent inactivity will be a small matter, and our armies will go forward all the better for such delay when they do start. And we feel assured that when they move, directed by the consummate soldier now at the helm, they will move like the avalanche, that gathers force as it goes, and sweeps every thing before it. Thh Agitation Amo.vo the Workinoues.? The workingmen of New York are celebrated for their regard for law and order. They rare ly make any movement calculated to distarb the ordinary course of business, unless they hare serious grievances to complain of. As a class, they repudiate party leaders, and keep as clear as possible from all party affiliations in matters relating to trades, particularly in the matter of compensation for labor. Therefore they command the respect of the community, and enjoy a corresponding degree of influence. The agitation now existing among the work ingmen of New York has been created by an ill-timed, unwise and unnecessary piece of legislation in Albany. The attempt to legislate upon the subject of compensation for labor is absurd, and can only end in mischief. The workingmari is entitled to receive whatever value he may justly set upon his labor, and tho employer can hire him or not, as he deems beat far bis interest. The present movement is a strong one, and the fact that it is right give? it strength. The workingmen only want their rights, and we are much mistaken if they do not succeed in obtaining them. The bill before the Legislature, it seems to us, is a sort of government contractors' job, a shoddy plot to wring out of the workingmen what the shoddyites fail to steal from the government, and it should be denounced and defeated. The workingmen are earnest in this movement, and, although advised by bad men to resort to violent measures to secure their object, we are glad to observe that they prefer the better course, and that ia by presenting a dignified and manly remonstrance te the proposed ill advised and ill timed legislation at Albany.

Truly, civilization in Hayti is becom ing one of the grand features of the age. TKe Defeat of the Uadercreand Broad w?7 KUtli oimI?Tfce Schemes of the Da jr. The bill for an underground Broadway railroad baa been defeated in tbe Legislature, and thus this scheme becomes impracticable although the four million dollars?the estimat ed cost of tbe road?were already subscribed The very proposal to uudertake such an affair goes to prove that tbe spirit of enterprise which is at present rife in Europe has reachcd us. The Old World is more familiar with these gi gantic schemes. The tunnel through the Alps is half completed. Paris and London are honey combed with underground railways. There is a tunnel under the Thames river; and for years past, in Paris and London, a tunnel under tbe British Channel, from Dover to Calais, has been a subject under earnest consideration. It is true that we have not reached the de gree of audacity which distinguishes the Euro peans in these grand undertakings; tout we are fast gaining upon them in this respect, and shall of course outstrip them ere long, as this is essentially the land of enterprise and pro gress. We built, at a cost of thirteen millions, the Crotnn aqueduct, while Paris is yet with out one, and now would find a hundred mil lions, if needed, for a similar enterprise We have made a grand Park?at a cost of Ave mil lions?upon a bed of rocks where at every foot we were fighting nature and making a garJen. We shall soon construct either a tunnel or a grand suspension bridge to connect New York wiMi Brooklyn, and shall build stone piers all around the city. No matter how vast the expense, provided tbe scheme present* to the public tbe proper inducements of reform, utility and fat dividends. Advancing with tbe acre, we are now fully alive to all great under takings which benefit tbo people, and give seven or eight per cent on the investment, and find without effort tbe millions needed to carry them out. How great a contrast betwcea tbo present and tbe past of but a few years. Now we talk of a nat'onal debt of billions with an indiffer ence which is not assumed. During the ad ministration of John Quincy Adams a dedi cation in the accounts of a treasury auditor of four thousand dollars created a prodigious excitement, and an expense of thirteen millions per annum politically demolished Mr. Adams. And yet comparatively few years have elapsed since the primitive period we refer to, and now we have a million of men in tbe field, spend two millions of dollars per day, get up a Metropolitan Fair that yields a million, ask no foreign loans, raise millions all over the coun try for charitable purposes, build tbe largest and most formidable fleets in the world, stand any amount of imbecility in the government, are constructing two or three railroads from the Atlantic to the Pacific ocean, fight the bisrgest battles, shall connect tbe Old World to the New with telegraphic wires, and may yet tunnel tlie Atlantic and Pacific. The necessities of a position which our enemies fondly hoped would prove our ruin have caused us to realize the vast extent of our capabilities, and, by giving us a true know ledge of our power, prepared us for great enterprises and great progress. The war has caused us to advance, in the short space of its duration, to a stand second to that of no Power on earth. In our works we shall prove this. Rlllfloui Intelligence. HBKVIOB* TO-DAT.

Effect of tlac Consolidation or ttie Array Corps. Wa'hinotom, April 9,1864. The dissatisfaction occasioned among rifflcors or the Army or the I'otomac,by tho consolidation of their c?rps with other organizations is rapidly decreasing, although the men still manifest much jealousy, A few days ago s large number of the Third corps, now consolidated with the Second, appeared oo review with their old badge on their caps, as usual, but with the Second corps badge attached to tbs seat of their pantaloons. This and other demonstrations of a similar character have In a few inaUnoes led to ifmt bitterness between the several commands; but tbs re newal or active operations will, it Is believed, correct tfce evil, as It did last summer arter the battle of Chancellors vllle, when men were punished for straggling by mount.

IMPORTANT AMD RXOITINQ PK0CBKDIN08 OP TOl ?eon. This has been the moat exciting day In the House that has b en witnessed since the commencement or the war. The S|<eaker ollort Mr Ratlins, of New Hampshire, to the chair, and offered a resolution for the expulsion of Alex ander lx>ng, of Ohio, for the seoession speech delivered by him la Committee of tbo Whole yesterday, as in oontra vpotion of bis duties as a loyal citizen aud bis oath as a roemb.-r of Congress, giving aid and comfort to the rebels In arm* against tbo government. This led to a miwt cxciting debate, which continued for sevoral hours. Tbe attendance, both on tbe floor and is tlie galleries, was larger than for several weeks past, and tbo most Intense interest was exhibited in the matter by all parties. Most of tbe democrntic members who took part in tbe debate, whilo disclaiming the endorsement of ths senti ments expre-sed by Mr. Long, contended that no member was properly liaole to expulsion for any thing spoken in debate Ko'nn do Wood, however, endorsed ths sent! ments of the s|ieocu, and said if the House expelled the genti<-m <n from Ohio they could expel bim also. Tbe principal feature ot the dehuto, however, was tbo extraordinary spc-ch or Mr. Harris, of Maryhnd, who weit as mi:ch beyond what Mr. L' ng bud said aa that gentleman yestoidxy excoetled tbo treasonable utterancos tioretoiore induced tn by Mr. Harris during tbo prcseut =c*?l< o, ?0 outrageous did be become in his denunciations of the loyal peop'e of tbe United States, and of the efforts which have b?en and are making for tbe suppression of tho rebellion, and in bis defence of tbe rebels aud aspira tions for their Biiccrss, that be was called to order and permission refused bim to proceed with bis blasphomous treason. Hy unanimous consent tbe consideration of tbe reaolu lution was Anally postponed until two o'clook on Monday. Mr. Wasbburne, of Illinois, then introduced a reeolu. tion for tbe expulsion of Mr. Harris, which was not car ried, as In consequenoe of tbe war democrats voting against It there was oot a two-thirds vote in its favor. A resolution censuring Mr. Harris, Introduced by Mr. Schenck. ofOblo, was passed, only eighteen voting in the negative. The voles ef Cox, Odell, Ward, Oanson and others, who claim to be war deaoorats, against tbe resolution of expulsion, excited surprise. Tbey thus placed tbem selves and their branob of the democratic party before tbo country in full fellowship with these shining lights of the rebel sympathizers?as really in effect endorsing them and committing the derflocrutlo party to such a policy as wilt Jmtry the charts that tbey are not hear tily opposed to rebel recognition. Moet of them, however, promptly seined tbe opportunity to vote in favor of the resolution of censure. It Is plain that if the resolution of oxpulsion had Included tbe whole of Harris' speech It would have received a t?o thirds vote. lbs republican laoler-; are highly satisfied with the result of the day's work, and say that it will destroy the small remnant of the once great and powerful aemocruic party. They are already talk tng or issuing tbe speeches or Long, Harris and Wood as campaign documents for the ensuing Presidential oJec tion. Both parties are anxious that there shall be a fall at tendance of members on Monday. It is said that a number of democrats members of the House met this morning, la aa Informal caucus, aad de termined to ropudlate toe rebel sympathizing sentiments expressed by Mr. Long, of Ohio, and authorised Mr. Cox to make the repudiation in tbe House. THI&T Y-BIOHTH COROBB9S. riMT SBSSlOff. Honu of RiprcieBUIlTU, Washington, April 9,1804. in mxrvmon or kk. loro. The Spxaxsr, [Mr. Oolfax. (rep.) or Ind.], called Mr. Rollins, or New hamp-hire, to the cluilr, and rising to a question of privilege, offered the tollowiug preamble and resolution:? Whereas, on the 9th day or April, 1H84, when the House of representatives was la Committee or the Whole on ttio State or the Union. Alexander Long, a representative in Congress Trom the Soeond district or Ohio, declared himself iu favor of recognizing the inde pendent n itinimnty of tlie so-cai'ed confederacy now In aim* a^riimt the Unlou. and wlicens, ih- said so-called confederacy thus nought to be recognized and eatahli-ibed on the iuius or a dissolve'! . r destroyed t'niou has, as ita cbior odicers. civil and military, those who h ive added penury to their trensoo, and wiio sivlc to obtain success lor tuetr parricidal effort 3 by the kill mg oi the loyal sildiors of the nation who are seeking to save it from destruction; and whereas, the oatn required oi all members and taken by the said Alexauder I/ing on the first day or the present Congress, declares that he ita* voluntarily given uo aid, countenance, counsel or <>n couragement to persons enraged in armed hostility to the Tutted States, thereby declaring that suck conduct Is regarded as inconsistent with membership in the Con gress of the United (Hates; therefore, Kesoivod, That Alexander Kong, a Representative from the Second district or Ohio, having, on the Rlh or April. 1864, declared himself m favor or recognizing the inde peodence and nationality or the so-called ooniederacy now in arms against the Union, and thoreby giving aid, countenance and ???couragement to perg'ns engsged in armed hostility to the United States, is hereby excelled. Mr. Colfax said that be had pondered upon his duty, and relt that he bad a double obligation resting upon bim?one as the presiding officer, to administer the du ties or ttae Chair and the rules impartially, and the other as a Representative from the Ninth district or Indiana, commissioned to speak, act and vote ror hit constituents, many or whom are in the tented Held, and exposing their lives lor the sarety and perpetuity or tbe country. Ha owed It to the women and children in his district, whose natural protectors were stricken down by the bloody head or trea son, and whose household has thus been bereft. He bad bo personal unfriendliness towards tbe gentleman from Ohio. Their relations bad always been pleasant. He (Mr. Colfax) believed in tbe ?'freedom or speech," and nothing would have prompted him to the present coarse excepting tbe utterances or the gentleman (Mr. I/ong), that, In so many words, be was in favor of recognizing this so called conrederacy and Its independence, nnd by such recognition admitting it as one of tbe ramlly of nations. And now, when the Confederate flag ?n here baldly tinfurled, and aid and oomfort was glvsn to tbe enemy by the gentleman (Mr. Long), notwithstanding his oath of office, he (Mr Ooirax) felt It his duty to oiler this resolution, and called upon tbe House to paae their judgment upon It. He hint offered tbe resolution, not aa the reeult of consultation, but on his own responsibility. He (Mr. (Wax) said deliberately that his (Mr. Long's) avowal could not bs passed over In stlenee. If such re marks. giving "aid and comfort to tbs enemy" are suffer ed to go unrsbuked, why ougbt we to salt our soldiers to peril their lives ror tbe Union? When destruction la thus opesly advocated on this floor, we should cease to school deserters, ror they have not repudiated ihelr obligations any more flagrantly?oertaioly less Influeutially.

He w%s n?l >B th? Qouee when hla colleague r Mr. Long) made hla remarks; but be (Mr. Cox\ waa la Termed by members around him (hat tbey would bear the interpretation put upon them. Had he (Mr. Cox) been to lit* ae >t yesterday he should hive disavowed, la behalf at tbe Ohio delegation, any remarks looking te the recognition of the rebelli on as orystalixad at Rich mood. He did not koow a single member of tbe Ohio delegation, excepting bis colleague (Mr. U>ng), who waa willing to reongnize tbe Confederate government. He spoke or this because of tbe attempt ta make pxrtlsxn capital by those on tbe other side He (Mr. Cos) believed that his c>Meague at the tinsa aix>ke only his own sentiments, and not th ee of hie parly. Recently there was a Democratic State Convention la Ohio, representing 145,000 votes, and la that convention no sentiment like (hat of his colleague was uttered. Hie only man whose name w?8 presented, looking to recognition, and who had circulated a pum plilet in support of his views, received only two votes In tbut con veil lion as a delegate. The loyal people of Ohio are not, under any shape or cotor, la favor or auch a declaration as tbe resolution attributed to bia colleague The democratic people in that State rallied and sent their sons to the war. although tbe people of Ohio did not agre with the African wholly, Mr. *VABBiioKMS, (reu ) of Dl., as If In correotloa of the K'eutieman, suggostod that be meant AbysaiaU, (laughter.) Mr. Gix replied that tbe gentleman from Tlllnota (llr. Wa?hburne) took pleasure In repenting a worn out )ok*. and he doubted whether tbat gentleman bsd any senoo at all In connection with tbe African question. Mr. WjsftnttRKi said he would leave thai to the gentle man from Ohio. Mr. Cox ssld he would not aubmit to lay further frlvoloua Interruptions, and then re ferred to tbe resolutions introduced Into the last Congress by Representative Conway, of Kansas, in favor of recognizing the Southern confederaof, Where then wss the sensatWe gentleman from Indiana, (Mr. Colfax i tbat be did not come forward with a rsecila I too of expnlsion. He woo'd aak the Speaker (Mr. Colfax) to respond to tbe question. The Speaker declares that be is for free speech. Why, then, does be pursue my ool league (Mr. I>oog) for ottering his sentiments, while bs (the Speaker) rerraln* from expelling a man In hi* (Mr. Colfax's) own ranks for doing the same thlngf 1 yield to the Shaker to answer the question. Mr. Coijax replied:?The Representative from Indiana claims tbe floor when he chooees, and declines speaking within the gentleman's (Mr. Cox's) speech. Mr.' ox.?Tbe gentleman la distinguished for prudonog as well as for sagacity. Someone bare asked Mr. Cox whether he thought Mr. Conwny, of KansHB. should have been expelled for offer ing tbe resolutions that he (Mr. Conwny) did? Mr. Cox res!<ond*fl that be did not thl?k that Mr Con way sb'nild boexpoih-d any more than Mr. Stevens, af Pennsylvania, should for his speech tn favor or regarding tho Southern contederacy as a <U. facto government?as an independent nation His colleague (Mr. Oarfte'd) bad taken the siitne ground as the gentlemm f' om i*ennayl? vnnia (Mr. Stevens), and now he (Mr. Garfield) waa la favor of ex'telling a member of the House entertaining the mime vi--ws as himself Mr. Oarhri.v. (eep. > of Ohio, said that he took tho most decided grotind against, the gentleman from Penn sylvania (Mr. Stevens), that tho South ure now a foreign people. In his speech he (Mr Carfleld) rem >rkerf 'hat thev were in the Cuiou that in putting- down tbl* rebel lion we must be governed by tbe laws of war as if they were a foreign nation, but not thereby admitting then to bo a forelen nation. Mr. Oox?IVi you hold the doctrine that the Southern confederacy in Independent now, and if not, are you la favor of er.peilinir the eentleman from Pennsylvania (Mr. Slovene) for holding such * doctrine? I do not beliova oitber in the doctrine of Mr. Stevens or of Mr. tang. Mr. Gar rtti.p?I draw the most marked and brood die tinction be', wocn the opinions of the distinguished gee tlomau from Pennsylvania (Mr. Stevens) and those of the gentleman from Ohio (Mr. I-ong.) The former favor ed tho prosecution of the war to the uttermost to bring hack the revolted states; the letter Is opposed la all further proseention of the war. and regards all com promire as impossible. He (Mr Loop) declared opeolf for throwing up the white flag, acknowledging the inde pendence of the confederacy, and tbat he would make na attempt, either by conference or war, to restore lit Union. Mr TriATKR, (rap.) of Pa.. suggested that his oolleafM (Mr Ptevens) waa not la his aeat, being detained there from by sickness. Mr. Cox replied that the remarks of the gentleman from Pennsylvania (Mr. 8tevena) were primed, and were ea well known aa if he (Mr. Stevens) were preaent. Mr. Cox then referred to the remarks of the Ron Dents mla Stanton. formerly a member of the House, who the emmenoement of the rebellion, that If the rebala suataiuod themselves for a year or two, and nothing hat a war of subluxation could bring tbem back, ha (Mr. Stnnton) would bo disposed to recognize their indepea denoe. Did his colleague (Mr. Garfield) vote for Mr. Stanton aa Lieutenant Governor of Ohio? Mr GARrniiJt replied that be did not vote for that gentleman or for any ticket. If he bad been la Ohio a| the time he should have voted for Mr. Stanton. Hit {Mr. Oarneid's) only excuse for not doing ao waa not being In the State when the election to?k place. Thera were many men en both sides of the political question it the begii'nlmr of the war ? no felt It to be tholr duty ta let the Southern people alone for a time, hoping that reason miuht return to tbem by delay Others said we cannot let tbem alone and to this class belonged the patriots on both sides. But now, when the question had been adjudicated, and now. when tho peop'e are doter. mined, after three years have gone by. and when wa are emerging from tho rli ht into the daylight of victory, to throw up tho contest would be treason. Mr. Cot replied that he had only asked an mswer to hl? question, and not ?n explanation as to whst consti tuted troaaon. While the gentleman (Mr. Garflald) would overleap tho constitution of bis country, be (Mr, Cox) would take it for bis guide, for there could be Union without It. When you talk of tre* on. and in tba same breath are willing to overlaap and break dowa tba constitution, you are tba traitor, If there la a traitor la this House. Mr. Oib'ucld aaid his colleague (Mr. Oox) waa mlara* proaeniing him aa to '?overleaping tba oonstitntina." He (Mr. Oarfleld) would aay, once for all. tbat be neve* uttered such a sentiment What bo remarked waa tfeWt when atdced whether, under any clrcumstanoaa, he would override the const!tulon. he said this, and thla only?that ha trusted the constitution was ample to put down the rebellion, and Itapowera were enfflcieutly ca pacious for that purpose, and therefore there w a M need to override tbe constitution, but If the time ever came when the constitution. war not found sufficient?aed he looked upon it as Impossible that the supnositiaa could be true?he would Bay, aa tbe American people are greater than the constitution, and the nation mightier than that Instrument, we have a sacred right to save tba creators of the constitution Mr Cox said that he had been informed by gentlemaa around him tbat his coileage did not state the questloa yesterday as he stated it today. The gentleman (Mr. Oarlleld) was reported In the Chronid* aa saying ha would resort to "any element of destruction, and fling the coratltntion to the winds." rather than lose hie country. There waa nothing here aaid about any Impea slbllity in the future. Mr. rox next qu ted froia Fonator Wade to hbow that the gentleman favored a separation of the States. Mr. Uarfwi.ti read the opinion of Thomas Jefferson that, the "law of necessity"' mieht be resorted to for tba purpose of saving the country when all other meani had failed Mr. Cox said tbat placed the gentlcmm (Mr. Oarlleld) In the campaign with Mr. Mr Cox then said that Horace Greeley, In March, ISfll, declared if the cot ton States chose to form an independeut bution they had the riwht to do so. He (Mr. Cox) would ask the gentle man (Mr. Oarlleld) whether ho agreed with Horaoa Greeley* Mr 1 tbat he h d not the pleasure of bear. Inn the extract t Mr Cox?My ? .e is oHuae when anything la aaM on this side or II. uo. but la willing to listen to any thing that may be lid when it is not on our side. Tba dechratlon of I lor ca Greeiev Is to the following effect:? We have repm *<".f ?aid and ones more announce, that the ereat prn-lple* embodied bv Jefferson In the dee'ara* tioti that government'" derive their ^ufct powers from taa conaem or the people are son a I and ju-t and if the cotton or Gulf Stair* clirone to formian ladepandent nation they bare the. right to <k> so. Mr. G *Knm.i> said that he would anewer after his 00% league had finished his sneecb. Mr. Cox?Y~u all swear by the Tribitnt, but are ao very sensitive wben the democrats look in tho same direction. He need not ssk nit colleague (Mr Garfle'.d) whether ha voted for Mr. Lincoln as President. In 1848 a speech of Mr. Lincoln's was printed expressly for circulation, In whlofe be said tb-it the people have a rlgbt to rise and shake of tbe existing government, and that any portion of a people can revolutionize ana set up their inde pendence. He then alluded to tba Speaker a* descending from hla blgh position to tho float and moving to expel a raemt?er of thla House. Waa be fllr. Garfleld) or not ta favor of the doctrine announced by President Lincoln? You will, continued Mr. Cox, loea no dignity by answering the qoeotlon. Wa will look upon yon wltb pride and pleaeere If yon will ta ao ooadeeoondtag as to answer. Mr. Couax ?ald?la reply to tbe pereonal remarks of the gentleman (Mr. Cox), I would say, wben I appear aa tbe floor I do not deaeend from a blgh position. I speak for my oonstitneats, and that la tbe highest place a naa can bold. I aa tba repreeeoiatlve of flfteear thousand voters. . ... . Mr. Cox aaid tbat ha did not apeak of the gentleman1!
