WASHINGTON The Miscellaneous Appropria tion Bill in the Senate. DeBiF.iciation of the Seerctiry of the Treasury by Seualon Sumner uod Chandler. Passage of the Naval Appropriation Bill in the House. Proposed Remonstrance Against the Es tablishment of the "King dom of Canada." Ao. Ac. Ac. Wa-mviiiox, Feb. 27, 1MT. Tkc HMaaairNrllM Sill-The IuiwUIbk Yetm S.Mthri'i Opinio* of ibc for rtmmnm bMt known to himself the President has postponed sending In the veto of the Military hill to-day. Common manor assigns this delay to the importunities of distinguished personages, tome vf whom nailed upon hliu thia forenoon and endeavored to perauade him to sign the bilL (>n the pert of bis m-et intimate friends, however, it Is alleged that he will certaiuw adhere to his veto, which was laid berore the Cabinet yeate*t?y. Perhaps nothing better could have been dev*^ to bring out popelar sentiment in the South than to ht?? had some prominent man of the record and sympathies ?f Senator Johnson pursue the course taken by him on the Reconstruction bill. It has afforded opportunities to the demagogues of the South to denounce him, which has been done without stint, and It lias been tbe occa sion of thanks and congratulations to him on tbe part of the solid yeomanry of that section. The iollowing is ?ely one of the thousands of similar letters from ?be South received by that Senator on the subject of his vole. It plainly shows the character and intelligence of Its author, and, it Is believed, represents the views of nearly all tbe Southern people who hare really any ma terial interests to be affected by federal legislation. The letter tr from Emory, Vs.. dated tbe 23d:? Permit a stranger, a citizen of tbe South, who watches tbouebttuliy and solicitously the course of public events, to express to you bis admiration and his thanks, pro found and earnest, lor the statesmanship, no less than the patriotism, which actuated your vote in tbe Senato >e tbe 20th on the Military Reconstruction bill. In public attain that which Is itself bad may he relatively pood, and 1 honor tbe wisdom ana courage that accept the beef practicable, though It may be far from best ptr m. Heme of the disabilities of tbe bill in question are needlessly harab and severe upon us of the .south; but what we'need most?whet we suffer terribly fo( tbe went of, in every nerve and fibre of the body political, social, Industrial and educational?is repose not political power. In this view you nobly chose to yield your personal convictions to tbe public exigency; and while you could not secure what sou esteemed fittest, worthiest, you accepted the beat yen could get In behalf or our stricken Southern coun try and of the whole land I thank you for it. Robert J. Walker also telegraphs Mr. Johnson from Xew York that "every hour adds to the popular cur. rest" In favor of his course. tUwoml INx't CMtaMilM. tMUe <wti Uu GmnJ Diz I ae MtnMar to Franco.

They had no idea of being hald re eponsibl# to the Mecretarv Tor -ailing hint a criminal and a pauper. It was not for him (Mr. Buckaiew) to ques tion the taste of such references to a high public officer who cannot defend himself" on this floor, and can nnlv he defended la such remarks aa olbar -e Damns may offer by way of reply to such charges.

Alluding to Urn remark or Mr. Buckaiew that Senators were not to be held rMpotiatble elsewhere lor what tliev

said here. Mr. ("handler -cud ha had no desire to shield himself from responsibility. What he said here lie was accountable for elsewhere to the Secretary of the Treas ury or to anybody else. Mr. Lass, (rep.) of led., felt impelled to ea.v a few words In vindication of the Secretary of the Treasury. He had known him for thirty years. Instead of being an unimportant officer of a little tuuik in Iudiaua. he waa for twenty years President of the Stale Bank of In diana, which had thirty branches and a catuiul of $11,000,000. He (Mr. I.avb) had nothing to say in de fence of the Secretary's action In appointing rebels to office, only to say that the Bccreiary felt hound to do what he bad done lu pursuance of bis duty to collect the revenue. These men were appointed on the recommendation of loyal asses sors and collectors in the Mouth. He might have made a mistake, but there was a strong claim of equity for the men It waa now pr-jawed to pay. They had dis charged their duty, aa1 it did not become ? greet and magnanimous nation to deny a claim of $136 each to a few men who bad been appointed on the recommenda tion of officers of the government. Mr. Wiumi.n offered a substitute for the pending pro position declaring that in employing persons who could not take the oath prescrib d by law as assistant assessors in the rebel States in the collection of internal revenue, the secretary of the Treasury acted in violation of law, but the persona so employed being guilty of no offence, ara entitled In equity to payment, and the Secretary of the Treasury it authorized to pay them the amount due tbeni for tbelr services to the 1st of August, 18M Mr. Chancer raid the fruit was with the principals, and not with the assistants. When rebels were appointed aa assessor* tbey appointed rebels as assistants. It was so In the North as well as In the Month. In Michigan, when Andrew Johnson appointed copperheads to olfice. they alwaye selocted copperhead assistants. He preferred South Carolina rebels to Michigan copperheads He could gel along with the rebels; but (lod del end him from the copperheads! Mr. Fwnitni defended the Secretary of the Treasury from what be called the foul-mouthed attack made upon him. If any man belonging to what waa styled the radical wing of the Senate bad been In the Secretary's position, and had done as the Secretary had done, aone of these attacks would have been made upon him. Aa to the remarks of Mr. ( handler, he would not reply to them, because be could not uee language to (Uly express bis opinion on the sutyect. The allusion to the poverty of tbe Secretary was a matter of uwie which Mr. Chandler must de-tale for himself. He would remind tbe Senator from Michi gan, however, that Alexander Hamilton, the ablest financier the government ever had, was a poor man, and that men's knowledge of statesmanship or Dnanco waa not alwaya in proportion to the doptu of their pockefs. Mr. SuMxmt replied briefly to Mr. Fessenden, again charging tbe Secretary of the Treasury with criminality In the appointment of-ihot-e assistant assent"!*.

Noticing a whispered remark of Mr. Morrill that he (Mr Schanck) was a filibuster, be denied that he was, and said be was only standing up tor a neglected in terest of the country. He proceeded to argue la sup port of hie amendment, and upbraided the Committee of Wavs and Means for the protection etieaded to man a facto re* and the absence of protection to agricul tural products. Mr. Morrill combstted the view* put forward bv Mr. Hcboimx, and declared that if Mr. Scheock could sue. coed lo establishing a tariff In accordance with his view*, he would destroy the Nnen manufacturing In terest In the country and would consequently Mot get Half the present price of flax. Mr. Im Biond, (dem.) of Ohio, while opposed lo high tariff generally, waa in favor of giving to the agrlcel tural interests the name protection given to the Bans factoring interest He hoped the West would make ? bold stand on this bill, assert Ita rights and have its sway In Ihe asialdishrasnt of a tariff.
