The House having resolved Itself into committee of the whole on the Diplomatic Appropriation bill, the mo tion of Mr. Williams to strike out the appropriation for tbe United States legation at Rome was again consid ered, when, after a sharp debate between Messrs.

This debate proved that there wae aa III concealed hostility to tbe Roman Catholic Church per vading the minds of the majority of the House. Proposed Inspection of Indian Affaire. Mr. Windom, of Minnesota, from the Committee on Indian Affairs, to-day reported back the blU to provide a board of inspectors for the Bureau of Indian Affairs, and warmly pressed its passsge upon the House. The Mil provides for the appointment of a board of tbree commissioner*, with sufficient authority to make the closest scrutiny into all matters connected with the Bureau?one a civilian to be appointed by the President, cae aa officer of high rank, to bo detailed by the Secre tory of War, and the third to be selected by the Coufer cnces of the different religious persuasions of tbe coaatry. Mr. Windom said that in 1855 a commission was appointed to investigate tbe Indian troubles, and In doing sa had travelled over tbe whole Indian country, Bad heard the complaints of the chiefs and all others that Stalt aggrieved, and sought for the beet wsy to prevent the voearrencc of the evils, and the Commission recom ?nondsd a measure of this kind. The Board would make aa tnapeottsa tour among the Indiana onoe a year and Ingulre lato sad correct all evlla He did not approve ?r the amendment to turn the Bureau over to the War Department, and stated thai the committees of both houses, with ono exception, were la favor of adopting this bill. Ha thought tbe preaent ay stem wss a very feed one, but the difficulty wss to gut thoroughly honest cad able ma to carry it out. The mm who had been affiected were not all the boat men for the duty. They felt II lacuna bent upon themselves to make money out ef their positions, and ho thought that as but one of the proposed inspectors would bo a politician, while tbe ethers wo aid bo se lee led by I ho churches and the War Department, and would therefore be above suspicion of ursscg, there was every reason to believe that the Indian affairs woo Id to carefully and properly attended to aud the Iadmaa have no cause to complain of neglect or bad Meatmen!.
