Important Action of the Senate on the Bank Bill. The led Elver Disaster Attributed to Cotton, Speculation, Washington, April 29,18M. TBI NATIONAL BANK BILL IN TBS SENATE. The discussion in tho Senate to-day on tbe National Bank question Justifies tbe belief tbat tbe proposition subjecting tbe capital of such banks not invested in government bonds to State taxation will be adopted. Senators Fcsseudeo, Clark and Jonoson ably advocated tbe measure, and bave modi Bod to u very great degroo tbe views of tbo opposition. Tbe manifestations of a dis position to abrogate tbe rights of ibe several States were exposed and rebuked in a spirited manner, evidently to tbe gratiUcution of a majority of tbe Svnato. TUB HUMORS REGARDING SECRETARY CHASE'S BE TIIIEUKNT FROM TUB CABINET, Rumors have been rife here to-day, and were probably also circulated in New York, that the Secretary of tbe Treasury is about to retire from Ibo Cabinet, on account of tbe charges preferred against him by tbe friends of Mr. Lincoln, who regard Chase as a rival candidate for tbe ltaltimnro nomination Mr. Cbnse is stilj absent; but it has been ascertained tbat be has no Inten tion of resigning bis portfolio, at least not until all tbose charges bave been investigated. So mo of tbe allegations made sbow great stupidity on tbe part of tbelr authors, and otbers may yet recoil on tbo heads of those by whom tbey are supposed to bave been originated. DUPLICATED GREENBACKS. The statement tbat several thousands of dollars or greenbacks are held in Now York bearing duplicate nuiu bers, is set st rest by tbe fact tbat each number Is placed upon four separate notes, but each series is designated by s different letter on tbe face of tbe notes. TUB OVKKI8SU.C OF KRAGIIONAL CURRENCY. Tbe charge of an overissue of fractional currency may bo true; but if so it is not of those printed in tbe Treas ury Department, where tbosystcmof cheeks and balances precludes tbo outgoing of a single shoot without discovery . SUBSCRIPTIONS TO T1IK GOVERNMENT LOAN. Tba subscriptions to tbe ten-forty (nan reported at tbe Treasury to-day wore eight hundred and Ally three thou sand dollars. THE DISCUSSIONS IN THE HOUSE OF nEPRESBXTA T1VKS. Tbe members of the House to-day availed themselves of the opportunity afforded hy tbe termination of tbeir labors on the Tax bill to deliver e number of speeches which have been accumulating during tbe ten days devoted to that measure. The Blair liquor case was up, and seme two h mrs were devoted to It. It has now been Anally disposed of, as H is hoped, and tbe Missouri quarrel next comes up In the contested election cases. Tbe scene in tbo Il>use this afternoon while Mr. Brooks, of New Y ik, was attempting to make bis speech against Secretary Clia o was most exciting and disgrace ful Certain republican members appear to e nslder themselves tbe special representatives and defenders of tbe fecretary against all comers. Any allusions un favcratle to that officer calls tbem up, astd Instead of attempting to investigate, reply to or refute tbe statements and charges made, they content them selves with vnciforouMy and persistently calling lite speaker to order, and striving to prevent tbe cxpretetoo <>f charges ag.iinst Crave charges o, fraud and corruptl n b ive been repeatedly made against Secretary t h.iao and tbe officers sod agents of tbe Tree eury \ c.artuient during tbe session. To day Mr. Brooks reiterated these obartret, end ele<> repented other charges which h ive been current here for some time of gross im morality and rteaeuchery existing in that department?go grrrs that he said tbey were unfit to be detailed while ladies were In the "silence. A most disorderly and exciting eecne ensued, member* on hoih sid e springing to tbeir feet and vociferously calling "OrderI order."' Mr Sehcnck end Mr. Brooks at oue time appeared likely to have a personal conn let, addressing oftcn?lvo person alities to each other, and shaking their Oste at ono an other in an angry and excited manner. Mr. Brook* per alsted hi proceeding with his remarks, after tbey bid been decided repeatedly, both by tbe r^re ker end the H use, not to be in order. But tbe trtends of Secretary Cbes* are doing him tnoro la.ury thin bis enemies could by the course which they have taken, which, to say the least, has had tbo appoar anco of a desire to shield him and tbe de|*rt*ient from an investigation, well as to the peo ple, that a lull sr.d thorough Invest (jetton should bo bad, aod au impartial report made in regard to ell tbe al leged corrupt, Immoral and frauduluet practices. Mr. Garfield's resolution, offered Just before tbe House took a recess this afternoon, but to which Mr. Ancona objected, covered tbe whole ground, and, had ft boaa.ofiered oarlier in tbe session, and before the disgraceful scene of to day, wnald have relieved the majority of the House from tbe imputation which must now rest upon them, of barIng CO'-ceiled this when it could no longer be refused wltbont appearing to be a confession of the truth of at least a portion of the rhargee. The whole affair sprung out of a resolution iotrndecod by Mr. Dawes, of Massachusetts, callieg for the docu ments alluded to by tbe rreeklent In his reply yesterday to the resolution of Inquiry in regard to tba restoration ta Blair of bis commission as Major General in the military eervlce. Mr. Ptcvens to day staled that be last aigM voted for tbe Tax bill. Ills name was not read or raeordad, and ha made eo attempt to correct tbe omission, If It waa an omission, eitbsr al tbe time or boll! after tbe journal had been read and agreed to tbla morning. Kvery man In tbe reporters' gallery ooncurs in the statement that, aa stated In tbis correspondence last evening, sad aa appears by the reeord, be did not vote upon It. His remark to day In reply to Mr. Voorbees, that the bill bad bees se man gled that be almost wished ha bad been a lot"foro se that be might vote against It, shows that If be voted at all It waa in such an talrnlioually inaudible manner aa to ren der it for all practicable purposes no vote at all. Mr. Blow was innocently reported at not heiag present. Re was present, and votod (or tbo bill. The discussion of Winter IHvia" bill on tbe reoonetrue Hon of tbe rebel States occupied a portion of the after noon and tbe whole of tbe evening session to day. The ?ubelltuto presontcd by Mr. Stevens to-night folly ex plains his position on this vexed quest loo, and It le hardly too much to tay that he ia almost wltbont a follower in tbe extreme doctrine which lie proclaims. A number of speeotaos are yet to be made upon tbe bill. but e vote will probably be retched next early week. ins QUARREL OF TfIB MISSOURI COffORRSBMBN. Tbe everlasting Missouri quarrel wee up In tbe House again to-day, Mr. McClurg, of Missouri, replying to Mr. Blair's speech of last Saturday oo the repert Of tb* Be Uut committee in hie liquor ease, lila speech waa an ettqiapt to show that, notwithstanding tbe report of the ctmmKte* aod tbe evidence gives before It, ifcvlr must still Ha wider suspicion of complicity in lb* fraud, and IscidentaKy defending Mr. Chase and tbe Treasury agonta against the cbargea made against them by Blair, fhb repert and as Idenc* are to be primed. end It la hoped that tbie le the met that will be beard or tbe metier is Hengrees. Hft'BBARR ft Till FAT OF TUB ARMY.

The nous* Naval Committee had the matter of the Wew navy yard for trqp-cUds under consideration again to day, and discussed it fer some time, but were unable to come to any conclusion upon It. league Island lias disposed of, and New London will probably be finally agree 1 upon, although there Is still a good deal of opposition to It. RBNIOMATION OP CAPTAIN BBNKARD. Captain James Benkard, ef General Augur's stair, has resigned, in consequence of the reccot death of bis rather, in New York.

Mr. Henukhmi-j, (rep.) of Mo., offered e Jolut resolu tion to provide for lUe printing or the report of the com mission, of which Major General Irwin McDowell was Pre-1 lout, to examine into cotton speculations and frauds oa the part of officers in the West. A m Allocation by Mr. Gbines, requesting the Secretary Ol War to transmit the report, was accepted. Ou motion of Mr. I jink, (rep. J of Kansaa, the words "if not incompatible with the public Interests1' were added. An amendment of Mr. Grimes, requesting -all informs tlon touching the subject or touching the persons sup. posed to be Implicated in the report, was adopted. Mr. Wilson, (rep ) of Mass., and Mr. Ffshendicn, (rep.) of Mo., and others thought the reeolatton bad best wot be adopted now. Mr. llkMDKMWS said that information on the subject was desired now. ns It would bear on tbe bills pending before this b?dy, and this was tbe only authentic way to obtain it. One was the bill concerning uegroea freed during tbe war. There was a east deal In the report of the commission bearing on lb at subject. Another was the bill reported front the Commerce 'nmmMteo, putting H ID the iwwor or tbe Hooretery of the Treasury ?e par chsso nil the products of the Southern States. He bad read letters the Inst tbrce days fr >nt tbe Red river say In.' Mint our detest there was on noconnt of speculation, lbe cmvairy In udvanrc on that occasion, numbering three thuu-nnd men, had two hundred and sixty live wagons, which bec.imn entangled and confused tbe whole action and brought on disaster. Mr. Wilson wanted to know If tbe Senator charged that the lied rivor expedition was undertaken for the more purporo of gathering cotton? Mr. Hknokkson shmI no such thing, Il? merely wished to know what this brigade of cavalry wanted with two hundred and sixty live wagons, unless it was to gather up the products or ihe conn'ry' He had merely sutod licit tins extraordluary number ?t wagons were, as charged by the newspapers, for tbe purpose of gathering cotton. Mr. Gonness, (rep ) of Cel.. stnti-d, on what be consid ered the highest authority, Hist these wagons were pa't of the regular traiu of the army; and, whatever might have boon the defect < f gene-nlship which brought them there, tbe statement that they were intended to bring in c< tton was uot correct. Mr. Hen kSson made no charges himself, but It was ainguiar that tbe disaster bad followed the statements uml predictions of tbe new-paper writers. He read a letter from Grand I core, dated lour -days before tbe tint. tie, alleging a conflicl of authority betwecu General Ranks and Admiral Porter,und slating that the latter was seu lug cotton on land as a naval nri/.e, and predicting dWaa ter These prediction*-the resulis seemed to , unltrin. lie lioped the stat< raents were Incorreet, and he bo|>ei| there had tieen no disagreement between Admiral I'orler and Genaral Ranks. II not. It should be mads known. Mr t'oNNhss denounced the statement read as a er el and a base siander on Admiral Porter, which bo bad cue highest authority for denying. Mr. lltNOEN-oov was glad the .Senator could so author! tatlvely deny tbe statement. lie was a personal acquaint ance ef ihe Admiral, nod had a high opiol?u ?l him. lint these statements were having a had effect upon the pub Uc. and, ir untrue, should be refuted. The resolution as amended wsa then adopted. HR<NIH MINIS. Mr. NnsMitM called uj> the Senalcbill to establish bramb mints at t arson City, Nevada and Dallas City, Oregon. An amendment striking out (arson city waa adopted, and the bill pasted. THE NATIONAL BANK BILL. TTie National < urrency bill came iip lu order, the ques tion being ?n tbe Finance Committee's amendment to the forty tret cert loo, as proposed to he amended by Mr. I'omieroy, hy the iitscrtion ol a provision exempting from State taxation that portion of the capita] Invested In or based on I'nlted Slates bonds. Mr.(lame, (rep.) of N. H.. made an earnest speech against the amendment of Mr. Roaeeroy, aa being calcu lated to Interfere with the State basking lawn, and array the hanks of the Mates against the natioi al currency. Mr. Lane, (rep.) of Kansas, said. except m Urn praneet emergency, he would soont the Idea of a Lotted Stales barking law a? a duty he owed to bis nouatry and bia constituency. He was now i nly Induced to support the ine-isure tic nape his friends thought it a MMMI men sure in ttiopn times of war, and because be would do everything lo support bis country. Mr. Cowan, (rep.) of Pa., lavored Flats taxatloM upon these banks. Mr. JoiinpO.*, (npp.) of ltd., aald a thousand dollars la gold will purchase eighteen hundred dollars In currency, and that amount can be invested la t'niled -uuies bunds, bearing an Interest of six |?r cent, with lbe principal payable in geld Ihe hank can loan Ibis eighteen hun dred dollars oat to il? customers, and while It will re ceive on# hundred and eight dollars interest, the repre sentative of that eighteen hundred dollars la In the bask la bonds, bearing Interest during tbe whole period la which the loans are going on The rate on the original Invest ment will than l e over twenty per cent, or two hundred nod eight dollars per annum. These bnnks are also au tborlced in tbla bill, within proper limits, to loan oa their deposits to their full amount, receiving six per cent, and the aggregate amount of Interest la to be added to the eighteen hundred dollars of bonds. Thin being the floan. elal operation of the bill, all the Stale capital will Inevi tably oome Into tbene banns. H was s grant mistake to suppose that Ihe credit of the government depends alone upon our ability to meet our natlooal obligations. It la aa much Involved in tbe ability of tbe Mates to moot them.
