WASHINGTON The Tenure of Office Bill Pasted in the Senate. Settler Stater's Invective Against the President, fkid Stevens' Reconstruction Scheme Under Consideration in the House. FIRE IN THE EXECUTIVE MANSION. dbe. Ac. Ac. Washisoto"', Jan 1?> 1867. 1H( Impencbmrut. We have authority to-night for raying that the Ju dlclary Committee of the House hare appointed no sub committee to take teatlmoiiy, and that thoy bate not examined a tingle witnecs on the auhjeet of Impeach meat at yet. Another Attack an the President by Mr. Mmarr. In the Senate to-day Mr. Sumner occupied the chief at tention. and was very severe upon tne resident. He al luded to the fact of hie been called to order yester day by Senator McDougall on account of ccr tain language naed towards tho Presideut, and claimed, now that the alave drivers had be- n driven from the Senate chamber, the pru .lege of the fullest latitude of debate. He charged that Andrew Johnson had proved Uinnelf the successor of Jettorsi>n Davis, the leader of the rebellion; tbe rebellion, defeated in the flold, had reared Its triumphant heed In the Executive Man*x>n of the nation; he was a usurper, anl had * I fully rEurped the powers of Congress. Mr. Sumner also referred to the -ccne in tho Senate on the 4th ol March, 186ft, and to the President's speech at St. Louis .a No vember last, la which tbe expression "kick them out of -iBice" wo* naed. Ho raid he had uo coutMence in the President, but had conSdence In tbe peop' ?. Senntor Johnson Mid that In case of the impeachment of the President Mr Sumner bad put himself out of thepalo o the Judges by hla language used to-day. Tlse Flnnnree. In the House to-day Mr. Randall, or rennsylvnnia, from the Committee of Banking and Currency, reported bis bill for the substitution of United States legal lender for national bark notes. This was done, or course, with the concurrence of the committee, aud wou.d in dicate a decided disposition to dispense with the rations banking system as it now exists. The Committee of Ways and Means have had the Sec retary of the Troaaury aud the Commissioner of lutornal Revenue before them ti day, and are understood to be engaged upon the question of internal taxnt.ou. There has been no definite result arrived at by the Committee of Ways and Means on tbe subject or sales of gold, and the secretary of the Treasury is understood to bo opposed to any limitation of hie powers over this auhjeet But the opinion prevails that he will not be allowed to exercise the same control over the markets as ne has hitherto. There Is still much anxtety here about tho future, both as to the politlcsl and financial . condition of tbe country. The White Mono* leswrvntery Buildings on Flre-Ii?Jnry to tho Executive Mansion. This morning st eight o'clock the conservatory attached to the Executive mansion took lire from the bursting of a Cue on tbe southwest side. The main budding, ex tending from east to west and erected over an o.d br.e structure, is two hundred feel In length, with an addition of seventy feet from north to south. Tho flames swept through these buildings, destroying at least one-third of tho valuable plants, many of them of the rarest charac ter and of foreign origin. Horticulturists and florists express the opinion that the collocuon could not ho re pifor yean, and not oven then without a cost of hwinds of thousands of dollars. Among the plants destroyed was s large and beautiful Sago palm which waa Imported by General Washington, nod wns valuable v not only for lie rarity but oa account of the mtareet which attached to lias a relic. Four specimens of the 8trailtsla Refine, which were the large* and host In tun noantry. and which cannot be replaced, wen burned to n crisp before tho fire was discovered. Tb# an damaged to tho exteni of probably >20,000. the plant# in a hot bouse on the ground floor were preserved with but little damage The furuttum In the Executive mansion was Injured by the smoke to the amount of perhape 11.000. The timely arrival of tho Arc engines prevented the entire destruction of the conserve tory bnildtngs, lour of them being " ~0T for aoveral hours.

Tbe Comptroller of tbe Currency lies received tbout fifteen hundred quarterly reports of national banks for tbe quarter ending tbe 7lh inst. An examination of them shows that tbe bonks generally are In a remark ably good conditlou. Almost, every dollar of available funds is loaned upon the best of papor, and this though tbe deposits ere extremely large. About half of the banks lisve declared semi-annual dividends of five, six, elgbt, ten, and some us high as til toon per cent, besides carrying from ten to twenty per cent of net profit to their surplus fund. In regard to the lawful money reserve of the national banks, tbe amount now held is sufficient, with very few exceptions, allowing tliera tho privilege heretofore extended of holding compound Interest notes us a reserve for all purposes, circulation as well ss deposits , but, serious objections arising to tbo holding of compound interest" notes for circulation, besides the absolute prohibition contained in tbe law authorizing tbe i.sue of such notes, the Comptroller has called alio attention of tbe banks to tho necessity of keeping legal tenders on band to protect their cir uls tiou, and is requiring a strict compliance with tbo lew in this reaped. Another noticeable fuct in connection with (his subject is that the banks aro'ltoldlMg a largely increased amount of apeeie as compared with that re ported be. ore. This is no doubt owing to the fact that us tbe temptation of high premiums on gold is not so great as formerly, tbe corn interest on bonds is retained instead of licing Immediately sold. The old -ovulation In m"St of tho States, which wrs assumed by tbe na tional banks on their conversion from Uie Suite svstcm, is now reduced to s very small amount, end a large por tion of th.it now outrtuuding is probably lo.-t or in some manner destroyed, so that it should oot be cou-.lderod as outstanding circulation. This la a fact worthy ol' the consideration of bnukers and business men generally, especially when it is slated that not more than n veor ago the outstanding Slate circulation which was subject to redemption by the national banks exceeded 730,000,000.

I have already said that tbe duty ef the hour was the protection of the loyal aad patriotic cttiseoa against the President. Surely, this cannot be doubted. The Ural duty of the govern ment Is protection. Tbe crowning glory of a republic is that It leavee no man, bowever humble, without protec tion. .-how mo a man exposed to wrong and I will show tou an occasion for the exercise ot tbe high powers that God and tbs constitution have riven yon. It will not do to say, as Senators have wnd, that the cases are too numsrouk and that the reuiody cannot be applied without interfering wlih tbe system banded down from our fathers, or, worse still, that you have little sympathy with those suffering persona This will not da You must apply the remedy or fall in your duty. Especially must you apply It when, as on the present occasion, this wrong ta a plain usurpa tion In the interests of the recent rebellion. The ques tion then recurs, are you ready to apply tbe remedy ac cording to the measure of your powers t The necessity for this remedy may be seen In tbe rebel State*, and elm in the loyal States, for the usurpation Is felt in both. If you look st the rebel States you will see everywhere tbe triumph of tyranny. There is not a mall which does not bring letters without number supplicating the exer cise of ell tbe powers of Congress against the President. There Is not n newspaper which docs not exhibit evi dence that yon are already lardy in this work of neces sity. There Is not a wind from that suffering region which Is not freighted with voices of distress. And yet yon besltnts ! I shall not be led aside to consider the thorough remedy for this usurpation, for It is not my hab'tto travel out of the directive of debate. There fore I confine myself to the hill before the Senate, which la applicable to the loyal as well as to the rebel States. Mr. Sumner then epnke of the merits of this amendment, ad\ "eating Its adoption. Mr. Kpmonus, (rep.) of Yt., replied briofly to the ro. mark's of Mr. Sumner as to tho necessity for thM amond nient, at^ulng against It. Mr. Jojinvok, idem.) of Md., regretted that Mr. Sum ner, In his discussion of this proposition, had aeen lit to allude to tho President lu turms which he was Rure he would upon reflection see rea*on to regret. He (Mr. Sumner) had said almost In words that tbe power ofte mnval irom office ought to lie taken from the President because he had proved himself an enuiny of h's coun try, because ho had proved himself to be a usurper. In the partrular condition of affairs know^ to the Senate, Mr. JobuRon thought it was not proper for the Senator from Massachusetts to express tho opinions he hail lust expressed, and to Indulge in the epithets ho had used against 'lio President ot the United States. A resolution hud been formally offered in the House of Representa tives looking to tho impeachment of the President for high crimes and misdemeanors If that impeachment should be ordered by tho House tbe St-uale would b* tho Judges to decide whether ho was guilty or uoL Ha (Mr. JohnRou) had therefore hoped that neither the honorable member from Massachusetts nor any other member of the senate would, in advance, not only express his opinion hypothetlcally but express It decidedly as Jus tified by facts which were notorious. Wbnt sort of a trial, as far as that particular member is concerned, would the l?refldent have were ho to be Impeached as an enemy to his country or a usurper, either of which, in the contemplation of Coogres.", ij a high crtraof If, upon tho trial of that impeachment, that right which the common law secures to every citizen or subject whero tho common law prevails of having a fair tribunal to docldo upon bis case, tho honorable member from Massachusetts ought to bo, and I suppose would be, challenged for cause, in what attitude would that place him or otticra of us who should follow his example ? Without hearing a word In defence of tho President, without remembering the past conduct of that officer? considered until lat"Ty at least as perfectly patriotic and as showing a devotion to his country or the most fer vent character?the Senator from Massachusetts charges tbe President with being false to his country. The con stitution of tho United States, which save that a charge of this description Is to be passed upon by tho Senate of tbs United States, supposes tbat every Individual mem ber of the Senate would bring to the consideration or that question a mind as white as paper, upon which nothing Is written that can Influence his Judg ment. Yet the Senator from Massachusetts urged as I think, by what has occurred In the past hurtrcl to himself, when he was, as he thought. Improperly treated by this officer, has suffered his feelings to lead him astray, and to pronounce a sentiment In this Senate chamber to-day which will render It Improper tor him to sit as s Judge upon such a ease. Mr. 8nrrat?May I Interrupt my friend for a mo ment T What right have 1 to know that tbe Prealdent Is to he Impeached f How can I know ? And, let me add to that, even If I could know tbat, there can be no reason lu tbat why I should not argue a measure directly before tbe Senate and present such considerations as seamed to me to be proper and pertwent to the occasion. Mr. Jouveos said tbat he had not called the Senator from Massachusetts to order, because be trusted tbat bis own good sense of whet was duo to the Senate and to the country would of Itself have been a sufficient call to order. He (Mr. Sumner) says now that be doaa not know that the President will be impeached or tbat he may be Impeached. Be knows, bowever, that there Is a proposition ta the House looking to that Impeachment, and, la advance, be pate himself out of the pale of a Judge by pronouncing, in the face of the public that he has Judged aad con demned already. Oaring the Presidency of General i Jackson the Senate of tbe Halted States bud before it | a certain resolution couched la such phraseology at Im plied against him tbe charge of being an enemy or a usurper. He sentia hie protest, and said be invoked tbe honorable senator from Massachusetts to read that pro test again aad sse how It can ba answered. Mr. Johnson ?aid that in discussing tbs bill before tbs Senate it was wholly unnecessary to Inquire into the character of tbo President. Tbe President bad said a great many things that he (Mr. Johnson) could wish, for bis own sake, that be had not said; but no Is by nature impetuous, brought np and sprung--from tbe humblest walks of life. Be has been subjected to turmoil from time to lime, which, jerbape, he would not have been subjected to if be had been educated In the col leges which hare given to my Irtend from Massa chusetts such distinction In tbo animation of the learned. He was on tbe stump In Tennessee, meeting men who spoke not In tbe language of the classic*, but in language the stronger It was tha better It was liked by these who hart! It. N? member of the Senate regretted more than I did, said Mr. Johnson, tbe exbibitien of this feeiing on the port of the President on the 33d of Feb ruary last, or upon tbe journey he took to lb# West last Rummer. It was censurable and entirely out of accord with the dlgn ty that ought to attach to the high office he boldx Rut that did not prove that tbs President was untrue to his country, or tbat hs was a usurper. In conclusion Mr. Johnson said that the biographer of tbe President would say that no President sver labored mors zealously to enre the great wounds which a rebellion had jnfllctcd on the country or more honestly endeavored to plucc tho country on a footing in which It woald com trait'' the admiration of the wor d?not only to work out for us a national reunion, bat for tbat greater virtue of nrcrrtng to every individual citizen tbo rights which the crnlttn'lon had conferred upon him. Mr. H ws, (rep.) of Wis,, spoke briefly of Mr. John nie's ?perr'i. as <wmralttlug him (Mr. Johnson) as much tu favor of the President, m cess of the trial for Ira pes'-hment, as Mr. Sumner had committed himself against hint. Mr. Lot, (r?p.)of Ind., said that Iftt woald not out of order he would return to the consideration of lbs bill under con.ddc.atlnn. (lamghtar.) He would, how ever, protest against all attempts to abridge tha fullest liberty of d' ha'.e in ilic Senate chamber. While It may ant lffi |>n>per to speak discourteously of the heads of tbs other brioches of the government, hs elalmnd the right to rr'tIds* (he actions of such officials when measures were ind- r consideration regulating their powers. Mr. i.aoe ibon proceeded to cocsidef the necessity and pro priety of th' passage of the MIL Mr. Sgh-XX offered a modification of his amendment, making ull appointments of salaries of $1,600 or up wards either by tbe Pre.-ident or beads of departments, with tbe advice and conn-nt of tbs Senate, and no ap. polntments can be made without such action of tha Senate.

Mr. Howx mewed his amendment, offered and disa greed to a few days since, to strike out th# exception* of Cabinet Ministers la the first seotlon of the bill, so as to prevent tbe "removal of ,tbe officers without the convent or tbo Renate. In oflsring It again be said be had found a sUonger argument la favor of It In on* of the new-papers than ho bad mode In his speech. He alluded to tbo announcement In the Nsw Tons Hsxai.o that Henator Cowan would probably be tendered the portfolio of Secretary of War. He bad no hesitation la saying fbat he would oppose any tucb appointment Ho would eppof the removal of tho present faithful Sec retary of War: for ho did cot believe that In tho preeent condition of the country It would for tho public wel fare lo remove that officer.

The IToum then proceeded to tUo conaidtratioo of Mr. Kerens' reconstruction blU, the peudlug Question being on Mr. Bingham's motion to retail tp Urn Joint Commit teo ou U?t 'instruction. Mr. Domsklxt, (rep.) of Minn., spoke in favor of tbo n il. Ho raid that the government had the same rK lit to snboriiiute the wishes of the rebels to the welfare n:4l'on now tbst it had. during the war, aud I're il. in11' ?'ol,"*on *'M right when he assorted that the re bellion bad deprived the rebel State* of all civil govern tnejit, and that their Institutions were prostrated und laid ont upon the ground. He claimed that tt was the duty of Congress to commence at the very foundation aud build upwards Congress .oust not rcdopmzo those only as the people to whom etrcumstancefi might have giveua temporary awendeuce, but must deal with the whole people It had no right to consult lite prejudices or desires of the rebels any more now tuan it did when M deetrovcd their government and their armies. Kim err having oeaaed the blacks liecame uuiaoter a pfirt of the people, and Congress should recognize uo attempt at re construction which ignored them. He los'snced tho caae of .south Carolina whero the blacks largely . xceedod the whites in numbers, and yet tt wai propound to place all power in tho bands of the white minority, to oppress and destroy the black majority. Sooner' or later tho American people would reach the reronatruettou of the rebel States ou a basic of impartial justice und equal rights, and all attempts at a reorganisation on a different basis would be but temporary and' destructive. Tti* American people would hot long totomte the carnival uf vlolcnoe and murder now raging In the rebel Stales The government which would petpctua'e such a stale or linings would he a monstrous barbarism. He argued that no man could safely trust himself to the uure strained power of bto fellow mao. The Uisiory of shivery snowed this. Neither could any man trust himself 10 the mercies of a community where all the laws wero made by a hostile racd. The reports of army oltlcors sho*od the terrible persecutions to which the freed man were now subjected, and which would continue so long as thev had not the means of self-protection aflorded by a share in the law making power. Unless Congress organized the rebel Stales upon the tasls of equal lights and Justice to all, the nation would present the aspect of a great, free republic with a cruel despotism In the midst or It. H would carry death In lis breast. The doctrine ol the equality of all men before the law wo* simply uni versal sojlleiinoas, regu luted by 11 sentiment of universal 'u-ivo ii wa? fair play, recognized a* a common ne ce-viiy. Without this there must be elthor anarchy or d"*po\?m, it would not avail a man to appeal to tho couiis i?r protection if tho laws under every Interpreta tion wore against him. To deprive a human being of all influence and menus of defence was to invite every thing bu.-e m the rominuutiy to assail him. It the Victim was but lately a bondsu.au und his oppressor hi* former master, tho case was rcudcrod more desperate, Hut If to si! this were added the fact that the victim was the friend and tho oppressor the enemy of tho government. Congress bad every inducement to prot 'ct liim. The position of Congress found a parallel in H10 English Purli:iuiont of 1030, when called ui>on to decide upon fllllng the throne of England, made vacant bv the flight of J;i 11 ?* the Second. In striving to attain the sa.oty or the country Parliament was uot govrned by purely technical arguments. Congress must do as the English na'lon did then. It must take Just such steps as will Insure the p-rpotual liberty aud safety of the country. It was the duty of the govern ment to conserve the weltaro of the whole people, not of a part. It cannot be a renubhc to the whit ? loan and a despotism to the black. It must become either all re public or nil despotic. 80 long as It wa= u hybrid of both, Congross must expect only confusion and disorder such as now reigns in tho South. Mr. EuiwiHiK, (dem.) of Wis., next addrersed tho House in opposition to tne bill. He knew tiint 11 was of little avail to otter any roslsuinoo to tho settled decree of the majority or the House, but It was sad to M< sdent and soo the repub 1c. go to ruin Willi th" passage of this bill must die every vestige of a constitutional gov ernment. If tho bill itsc'i did not orocialm tho fact, its author (Mr. Stevens) had boldly proclaimed that it was revolutionary and subversive, ilia (Mr. Stevens') will appeared to bo law to this house, but would Congress and would the peo ple submit to auch dictation f (revolutionary this bill was. Revolutionists break up and divide the Union. The people of tbe South were wllllug that the republic ehould stand, but the gentleman (Mr. Stevens) and his party were determined that the revolu tion should not subside until all the "incongruities of 1 the constitution,'' as he had oxpressed It, wero removed. Mr. KM ridge read from Mr. Stevens' spoech In opening the debate, in which he had denounced the republic as a despotism, and bo also referred to his denunciation of the decree of the Supreme Court In the Indiana con spiracy oase None but despots or violators of law would denounce that court and its decisions. None but these who would contemn and revile their native land could do so. Future generations would honor and re vere that court aa the great conssrvator of the constitu tion and the law. This measure, it also appeared from Mr rtevenC speech, was to reduce the President to sub mission and obedience. There were, therefore, three main object* In this bill?to set aside the Sunrerao Court and its decisions, to remove tbe President from power, and to red oe ten of tbe State* of the Union Into a terri torial condition. There was no constitutional power or authority for thta bill, absolutely none. It* principle* were false In theory and In fact, and as destructive ot tha federal power as of tha Slate*. He de nied every assertion In the preamble, except that tha federal arms had triumphed. All tho other assertions In It were inconsistent and falaa. He utterly denied the abominable and Infamous doctrines laid down by Mr. 8tevem, that the congp ored nation way absolutely at the will and mercy of tho 000? Sueror under tho law of nations; and he also denied tat the taw of nations fixed the itaii* of the confeder acy in the late war. .The constitution stood as the su preme law of tho land In war ?a wall aa in peace, and covered with the shield of its protection, as the Supremo Court bad declared, all classes and conditions of man. Away, than, with those who would revile their native land, who would pualah with confiscation and frinisb meat and forfeiture of ail eivll rights tooae who had sot themselves up against what Mr. Blovoos himself charac terized aa a despotism. If It wart possible that a Stats could by Its own act forfait its rlgtite, whera would they r?at f Certainly not la tha federal government; for It bad not an attribute by which it would ?xerciss the rights of a Sure. The constitution was aim In vogue, and whll? it remained war might rage and fanatic* ho.vl In vain against the Union. There never was a more abominable do trine then that which asserted the richt of the government to hoid the late re bellious Slate* aa conquered territory. If persismd In and acquiesced in by the people it would overthrow the republic and eslnbl sh n despotism on ii* ruin*. It would be as destructive to tUe Union at to the Htaie. Hut It was absolutely impossible for tbe Umt-'d state* government to make conquest of ou* of tne .State* of which it 1* composed. Its power and jurisdiction were to defend and protect the Maies wlililu tM - Union. It could derive power but by one-way, mid thai was by a constitutional grant. If (ho ideas oi Mr. Steven* were to prevail < engross would, before many years, under take tu form constitutions lor all tbe Mule*. TUe revo lution of tO-dgy wu? acaiust tl.e wr.tteu constitution It was not to be ex|> teted that this was to be done in peace | and without I no shedding of blood. Peace* lit e cuusuli dalion was as impo-n l?!<- a* peaceable secession. The aouroo of sovcrojgniy was the people, aud Con gress was not, a* Mr. Slovens aflirmed, 110 people. In the conflict that was mm.rig liberty would be vindicated and <he malefactor* w ho aimed at its life would he puiiisbod. Reconstruction was the only restoration? malignant passion trad counsellor long enough. Liberty now slumbered. Congress had now an opportunity which rarely occurred In the history uf llio world?tho opportunity to speak pence, hnrmouv -md reconciliation.

Tie profos-ad h mseif not an onctnv to tho national hanks; but bo hold that, instead of tb>< government paying eig uecn millions a year in gold to lh; so hanks for the use of their paper inouev, the government should itself issue all the papor currency, nud cominue to do so until the naliounl debt shall lie extinguished. If the government were to issue one thousand millions of currency and re deem Its interest-bearing bond to that amount, the an nual interest would be reduced sixty millions In gold, and tho debt would be in a rapid process ef extinguish ment.
