TIm proceedings of the Boom of Representatives to day very clearly demons iraled their opinion upon the auhfect of the contraction of the currency. The rate of eighty -seven to sixty-seven on the reeotution of Mr. Mrtnaell, "Thet the public Interest demands that there ehell not be daring the current peer any redaction of outstanding United States notes, commonly known an greenbacks, and the Committee of Ways and Means are Instructed to report snch bill as may be neooe nary to effect this object," la a very decided manifestation of their trill to stop contraction, while their refusal to order the previous question on the previous resolutions of Messrs. Wilson and Crimes to limit the contraction to four millions n month would oeem to Indicate that they thought those resolutions were not enfflcieat to meet the emergency of the ease, and the vote to refer Mr. Kelley's resolution to prohibit the sal as of gold by the Hecretary of the Treasury to the Com mittee of Ways and Means has also given evidence that the House le disposed to oome to the relief of the busi ness interests of the country. It is now to be hoped that the national banks will be equally prompt in ex tending reasonable seeletsnoe to the business of the country. The ReconeCruetlea Question. The story of a plan of reconstruction having iron agreed upon by the several Governors of Southern States now la this city, after consultation with promi nent members of the republican party, is altogether erroneous. A proposition for the different Legislatures ?t the Southern States to endorse a protect of Impartial anaft?ge, with property qualifications of two hundred and fifty dollars and ability to read and write, hes been talked of in high political circles; but K <lid not origi tosta in thtf city nor With the Southern Governors who have been lately residing here. No one here Is authorised to speak for or agree upon any prepo sition. it is reported that the Reconstruction Committee will abortly take hold of Mr. Stevens bill declaring the pre sent government existing in the Statu lately in rebellion Illegal, and substituting territorial forms of government for them. ?
