The State Deportment, Mr. Seward aeya, declined to pretant against this latter great, because it had no ?eh wtidewoe ef the illegality of that great aa would war rest the interference ef ? r government.

Tbe Suprenre Court of the Dtunct of Columbia la mill o?m?d la hearing argument* on Ika question whether Um tort oath required for admission a hail fee art aaida. Colonel Magnider, who aaka to bo admitted without being required to take the oath prescribed by law for attorneys, la his argument to-day asked to bo motored to hie for mer privileges as a right, and apjbepf his hawing been aa officer of the Into confederate army, saying that what ever offences be bad committed as aocb bad been pardoned by the Rxeoutire, humbly submitting that he could be exdoded only by e spirit of rcsnstmeat wbiob ill become* the pro fession The question arose whether, in adopting the rule, the court did not adopt e rule in oonflirt with the constitution of tho baited States and the laws of tho land. Be was at a loss to know wby a law pronounced by tho United States Sspreme Court, the highest tnbu ual in the land, null and void, ahould bo enforced bore, if so, It must be shown that there Is Homething Intercept leg the relation* with tbie court. When an aot has been decided by tbe highest tribunal of the land to ho uncon stitutional, is there any tribunal which will insist on itf Judge Wylis remarked that the question wan. whether tho court had power to make rules for this admission to the bar, for this rule was being enforced as a rule, and not as e law. Mr. Mag ruder answered that tba court bad such power. Erovided that tbey did not violate a law of the tend; and e argued that the rule, being lh contravention of the law, must be pronounced nail and raid. Chief Justice Cartter aald thai the only question wen whether the decision came here mandatory or edvio tory. Mr. Magroder proceeded to argue that the rulo now operates ?a pod fact*. What did it provide ? Judge Cartter replied Wat It provides that thoy shall aot bar# given aid or comfort to tho rebellion. Mr. Totton followed in opposition to tho motion, tak ing tho ground that tho Court had power to make lie own rules, end closing by remarking that It was admit ted that this was tbe pioneer case, e skirmish from tho rebel lines, and s largo number worn swelling tho de cision of the (hurt.

He was a citisen of virgisla, aa also a nailvs, bat raiaed here. He loft the District while Virginia was yet in the Unioo, and wont where his relations and bis property were. The state required his allegiance, and had the power to coerce bis allsglahos. It was impesxlble then to know what was to take place, but when the war commenced of course bla sympathise ware with tbe people of hie section, and he desired the triumph of his friends. He did not leave the district for the purpose of entering the rebellion. Mr. Oook followed in opposition to the motion of admission, aaylng the decision of the Supreme Court was ?Hot entitled to profound respect, being a bare majority or the court struggling therewith Mr. Bardley remarked that as a citixen ho could not sit and beer the Hnprem# Court spoken of disrespect fully- There was a rule or the Court on the subject, and he asked thai it be enforced Chief Justice Cartter did not uaderetand that the coun sel was apeaklng disrespectfully of that Court.

The origin of the taw, be aaid, waa the Inconvenience of aigaalaiag the House without some special deaignaUea of this kind.

Mr. Poland had no objection to taking up this bill ir It would load to no debate, but he wished to get the Bank rapt bill paseed an soon u possible, and he believed It was properly before the Senate, having been made the special order. The Csaia aaid the Bankrupt bill waa oot before the Senate. The time (or which It was made the special order waa passed, and It bad been superseded by other bill^ Mr. FsasBSDKN, (rep.) of Me., hoped tho Bankrupt bill would be taken up and dispos.it of. Mr Cmandlsr, (rep. i of Mich., hoped the Niagara Ship Canal bill would be taken up, (t would lead to oo do bate he thought. Mr. Ltn, (rep.) of Ind., said he was oppos.-d to both bills, but ho preferred taking up the Bankrupt bill Orel. Mr. Wilson withdrew bis motion and the Bankrupt bill waa taken up. TBS HANKKLPT BILL. The question was upon the amendment of the Senate Judiciary committee to strike out float the list of excep. tious to the operations of the bill the following words:? "And Huch other properly not Included In the foregoing exceptions as is exempted from levy and sale upon exe cution by the laws of the Stele In which the bankrupt has bis dem icile at the tt mo of the commencement of the proceedings in baukruptoy, to an amount not exceeding that allowed by surh State exemption laws In forco In 1864." Mr. Doouttul (rep.) of Wla, hoped this would not ba stricken out, and expressed bitnself in favor ol the bill. Mr. Tsrusnx contended that as tho ey em prion lews of the States differed materially, one exempting 11,600. another $100, another $300. and so on, the bill with this paragraph In it would not be a general Bankrupt law, the only- one which Congress has a right to pass. The Judiciary Committee were unanimously of this opinion, and he appealed to the lawyers in the Senate whether it was not a correct one. Mr. Dooumjr said the homestead was a sacred trust fund, held apert for the family, and while it might differ in amount in the different States the rale was attll the same everywhere. Mr. Tauaaru. replied to Mr. Dooilttle by supposing the State of Wisconsin to paaa a law exempting all i he property of a debtor, and Inquiring bow the Bankrupt law could ho emloroed in that State in such an event, with the paragraph referred to. Mr. Poland called Mr. Trumbull's attention to iha fact that tho exemptions in the paragraph were such only as war# allowed under the laws in force tn 1664. Mr. Trumbull said that was merely a limitation of the amount. The bill proposed to exempt under any futare lawi not exceeding the exemption laws of 1864. Mr. W*nr. said his own opinion! were rather la lavor of a bankrupt law, but two years ago the Ohio legisla ture, by a nearly unanimous voia, instructed him and his colleague to vote against the Bankrupt Mil. Ha thou Id therefore feel com)>elled to vole against the bill. Mr. Hivpsmcs, (dem.) of Ind., concurred in the views expressed by Mr. TrqjnbnM is the pending amendment A bankrupt bill jnoat he uniform in its operations, sad It could not be uniform While this provision was in it. Mr. Howard, (rep I of Mich., oppoeod the amend ment. To strike ant tnla provision would be virtually to amend the exemption lews of tho State, wnieh Congress had no power IS da When the constitution speaks of uniform bankruptcy It In to bo understood as meaning that the laws nf Congress on that subject shall be anl lormaafar as Congress la concerned; thai m, that it shall not make one law for one Bute end another for another State. He bad no doubt about tho constitu tionality of this clause, and rather than see it stricken out bo should vote against the Mil. Mr. Coxxam, (rep.) of Gal., was inclined te the belief that the question raised by Mr. Trumbull as te the uni formity of the bill with this provision la It was Dot strictly pertinent. He did not believe the nslformlty required by the constitution related to tho amount ex empted trader Mate laws. He should be sorry lease the Mama stricken oak an it woajd materially adapt his State, where $6,else Was sxbnqrted far s hsmsetesd. ?e believed that the local legislation of s State was better aMo to Judge of the proper amount lo bo ex emptad than Congress could bo. As tho Mil oame from tho House ho would vote for it. If this amend meal were adopted bo should feel oompolled to vote against It. Mr. Games, (rep.) of Iowa, naked whether. If this bill became a law it would bo pose 1 Me fbr a Blare to change flsexemptioa law by increasing or decreasing the amount. Also, whether it would be poaafble, far a State coming lato lb# Pales after the passage ef this law, to paas an exemption law. Mr. Polaxs expressed the opinion that tt woaid sot be la the power of the "rates te change their exemption. Mr. Joexso.x, (dem.) of MA, addressed tho Senate brlety on the general (abject of the bankrupt laws, and expressed the opinion that the provision now proposed tern stricken out, did not destroy the ualferamy re quired by the constitution. After further dteroaaioa by Meases. Grimes, 8 tew art, Kaaaay, MeDougail, Darts tad Wilson, Mr. wiwm saovad to amend by substituting for tho words proposed to be stricken out, the following ?" ami a homestead, sad other property not exceeding la value ?*,00fe'? Mr. Vasm-new asserted the right or Ooagreas lo pass a Mil with a provision la it similar to thai now proposed to bo stricken out. Without something of tbo kind bo would not vou for tho bill. Pending the consideration of tho Bankrupt MIL Mr. Kbssudbh asked sad obtained the unanimous cos seat to to call np tba bill of the House authorising the Secretary of the Treasury to receive Into tba Treasury tba residuary legacy of James Mmitheon upon the same terms as the original bequest, wbloh waa passed.

There was nothing in It, he argued, derogat ing from tho proper and desirable exercise of Executive power. At! the power of suspension, all the power of getting rid of unworthy officers would remain' under It where It now was. The only change it wade waa that that suspension could not ripen Into removal without the approval of tho Senate.
