WASHINGTON Arrival if i Virginia Delegation to Urge the Passage tf the Supple mentary Reconstruction Bill. Tbe Fmdmen'i Homf*tead Resoluliwji Again Snubbed In the 8rnate. Sharp Talk Between Senators Fessen dcn and Sumner. The nomination of Ex-?enator Cowan Rejected by the Senate. feo. &C. &0. jyABiitscro", March 12, 1867. ?%? Coiiimnnilfr* for ih? New Military !)!?? tricta. Tbe announcement of new military Governor# waa delayed to-day In consequence of what I Indicated last ?Ifcht, vlt., the probable appointment of Sherman j of Sheridan. The President has tendered one * tbe appointment* to Sherman, but to uncertain whether he win ?cc?pt, Hist, because he might not like to supplant Sheridan, and second, because belt well aatlstied with hlH present position. The contest betwe n Hssicoc k and Ord teems to have been decided in favor af the former. For the new department, purely mlllta ?y, of Kentucky and Tennessee bhth Meade aud Ord are Mentioned. The Richmond Dispatch of to-day says it toenabl -d to announce upon high authority that General ?ebofleld has been appointed the Commandant of the District of Virginia under the Reconstruction act The Reconstruction Qtictiioti In Vlrarlniit. Information received to-day from Richmond anl Fredericksburg wouldjindlcatejthat the peopje of Virginia regard the pas^ago of the Wilson bill In the House of Representatives as a great victory over the radical ele ?tout In Congress. Ttie General Assembly of Virginia are jubilant, and upon tho roturn of their envoys from Washington at once dismissed the consideration of the anil for a convention. Governor Pierpont says "Con gress has been badly sold. The entire reorganization af the Sonthern Slates is now in the hands of the Presi 4ant and his rebel colleagues." The vote of the Union bib and negroes is looked upon as loet for radical pur poses, and Hunnicutt's career is effectually nipped in ?fas bud by it A committee, consisting of Senator* Ould, McRae, Trout, Marcler, Robertson and Keen, was ap pointed to repair to Washington to urge the passage af the Wilson bill by the Senate. They arrived at the Bbbitt House this evening. The people of Virginia are diligently working in the cause ot reconstructing their Stale government in accordance with tbe late law, and learning of the Introduction of Senator Wilson's Supple mentary Reconstruction bill, this deputation was selected to ooinu to Washington for the purpose of working for Ike interests of Virginia in this and other measures now before Congress. Tho leading men of Virginia seem to be la faror of this Supplementary Reconstruction bIH, and express a wish to see it become tbe law, as they think that the whole matter of calling a* convent ion and of ?soduoting tbe registration of voters should bo left en tirely with tbe military Governor. A meeting of the negroes in Fredericksburg last night waa addressed by a colored surgeon connected with the Freed men's Bureau. He was extremely radic.il, but en aoantercd au opponent of great ability in the person of ? negro, named James Brooks, who is a conservative, (fee negroes there are said to be radically inclined, ?nnnlcutt is expected there to-morrow night to canvas=s MBong tbe negroes for the radicals. ? statement having being published that there was trouble at Williamsburg, Virginia, between the whites ?ad tho freodmen, and that the military nad been called ?at to suppress tbe same, General S. C. Armstrong, ?noerlntondent of the Fifth district of Virginia, tele graphed to General Howard to-day that he bad not askxl lor a military force at Williamsburg. Eight mounted Ben bad been sent to Yorktown for a fow daya to assist tsi removing freed people, but there wa? no trouble what ?rer. The Adjournment and Impeachment Ques tion*. The adJouriimcnt~T|uestion shows little chance. Some ?aerotv'rs say all they are waiting for is the signature o( Andrew Johnson to the Wilson Supplementary Recon struction bill. The extreme out and out radicals of the Butler stripe, however, threaten that they will oppose aay receea that will lutcrfere with the Impeachment project, which, tbey fay, must bo pushed through at all fcaaards. Four out of the nine member* of the old Ju dietary Committee are claimed to favor impeachm nt, aad tbe Butior party announce that it must not be abau Aoaed on any account. There (B talk now of keeping Congress together until AprlL The Fenian* aud (!?ngrf?s. Tbe Fenian committee from New York are still here, fa-day they received iuither assurance* of aid and sym pathy from several members of both houses of Con grass. Senator Wilson's resolution regarding the sales at vessel# to belligerents, together with Senator Nye's naolutlon of sympathy in the Senate and Mr. Donncl Isy's In tbe Hous?, throws some tight on their workings. Judge Underwood, or Virginia, to actively engaged In tarthsrlng their cause. The Bonligny Land (!r*nt. flie time of the morning session of the Houm to day was almost entirely occupied by Messrs. Washburtie, of Wtaoonsln, and Woodbridge, ol Vermont, In a pcn?"nol explanation that amounted to a de*>?te on the resolution toatructing tbe Secretary of the Interior to delay action ?a the bill passed last session, granting seventy-live tfaouascd acres of land in Louisiana to the heirs or John B. Boullgny. Tbe assertion of fraud on tho part of the dtoimante and tbe developments that Mr. Wa?hburne threatened to make induced the Houso to vote tor a naolutlon that checks tbe operation of a com pleted law sf last session. The law granted one Math of funr hundred and flfty thousand aerea to fee heirs of Boullgny, and. It to claimed by Mr. Wash barne, authorize* tbe claimant* to acquire title to any aaoceupied public Ian Is. Tbe history or tho claim, as ?toted by \!r. Washburne, is that it derives its orlgl n from fee ramons Mississippi schema of John law notoriety. Ut claiuiod Iroro a grant alleged to have beon made fay the King of Franco in 1117. la 1AM. the hoirs of a rrvncbmjn named D'Antri^ve set up a claim, when Oongrosj pa-^ol a bill authorizing the claimants to ap pear before tbe ofllcera of the Land OiBoe to make proof ?f their olaim. The caae went to the Supremo Court, which on full review declared the claim ttl"g*l a%4 void. It was aftowards rev.ewed by a pelil.ou to the Tnlrty flfth Congress, bat no action wm taken aatli the How* of Representative* of tbe Tbfrly-sixih Congress allowed the ciaim tor the benettt of the heirs of D'Antrleve, the Bcnato not agreeing. Boultgny, from whom the present claimants claim, was ? member of tbe oommlttee whloh recommended the claim to that House. Tbe matter sw again Introduced by the hairs af Boullgny In the last Congroiw, which passed the bill ?aw objected ta ThU to ? brief outdne of the caso as given by Mr Washburne, who further state* that there wm no evidence before Congress showing that Boullgny himself was an heir or had any claim to the property. Many of these statements are denied by some af the members of the committee thai passed the claim. Should the Investigation which the affair will have to submit to by thto Congress nonfirm tho his tory given, H will probably proro to mombore that they an aoraetimes given to loose legislation.

Mr. Pr widest? On having the honor to present to you the letter of rorall of my credentials from her Ma.wsty tbo Qneen. which puts an end to the mlss'on which I have Mind for tou years near tbe govern nent of the United Stales, I feel at the same time regret at leaving a conntrv in which ofllcially ard personally I have received so ni'ieh consideration and sati-facilon at the stat^ of perfect amity which exintn In the relations between the two governments. To this object all my efforts have been directed during this long time, and to this object will bo addressed those of my successor, always in accordance with the government of her Maiesty.

To which the President replied as follows:? Mr Tassaba?The last six years of your residence here hare been eventful?eveutful forlhe In lie J Staios, eventful for Spuln. Tha relations of the two countries are peculiar. They are intimate neighb rs, having msny intereH's in common, while their social conditions are somewhat dissimilar unit their political capitals are wide apart. There have beeu some orcaslous during your residence hero when it has required a diligent exerrtse of sagacity, watolifuiucss, honor and good faith on both | sideg to maintain tbe imperative obligations of Inter national law and preservo p?aco and harmony between the Unltod Slates and Spain, which, at a very oarly day were friends and allies. I do not kuow how far tho proceedings of this covernment in these reap cts have I been satisiadorv to Spain, but you have well alluded to the results. At no tlmo has an Impatient word been spoken on either side, and the United States and Spain are tho same friend* to day that tliey w ere in 1778. f enjoy, Mr. Tassara, a peculiar satisfaction In bearing witness on (hie occasion that for this pleasing situation both countries are In no inconsiderable degr o Indebted tojourscif. We experience somelbins ol sadness in giving you our loiter of recredence. We will extend our confidence to vour successor on tho assurances of your sovereign.

The intimate personal friend ship thai Is so well (mown to e<U*t between yoursett and the .-ocrotary of St?te renders it unnecessary to sa; Hist ho sustains mo with peculiar cordiality in all the senti ments I have expressed.

If Congress bad a right to grant suffrage to the blacks it had a right to provide that they shall he qualified by education for the exercise of the franchise. It "was due to the whole eountry that this 1m done. Regarding the status of Hie rebel Mates, Mr. Morton said lie should always oppose the theory of Mr. Sutuner that they were reduced to a territorial condition. He bad always held that Con gress had full Jurisdiction over theac as elates slpoe their act of rebellion, and under this power could do what it was now proposing to do, reduce them to Territories. Mr. Hows, (rep.) of Wis., tbauked Mr Morton for bringing the resolution* again before the Senate. Ho (Mr)Howe) voted yesterday against laying them on the table, and ionnd himself compelled to do so without giving bis reasons. He proceeded to addreas tbe Senate on the subject matter of the resolutions, prefacing bis remarks wltii an assertion of tbe control of Concreen

over the whole subject of reconstruction. He regarded the provision on the subject of education as more im portant than any other. He did not think it could be controverted. He absented to the proiiosltion that a homestead was necessary lor the freedtnen; but be was not prepared to fay trial this could not be obtained under the ex ?sting Homestead law.

Mr. THi-XBrLt moved an executive session. fP'CT PIIATK. Mr SrMNRR hoped not. He wished to say a few words on iho subject before the Senate. Mr. ritc*B(.'u. said this would lead to an interminable discission. Mr. SuNxm said he could say what he had to say on the motion to go Into-executive session. He was pro ceoiiiug to congratulate .Mj\ Morton on his speech, when he was called to order by Mr Fmkkndex, (rep.) of Me., who said congratulations to Mr. Morton were uot perti nent to the question of going into eicculivo question.

Mr. Svmkxr than said he would not proceed with his remarks just n'>w, but whon the Supplementary Recon struction bill came up be shoild move to amend it by providing that duc.ition shall be secured to all alike in the rebel gtuies, and on that bo should address tho Senate.

When hesUt d that the allogatl<ws in tho preamble were not true be did not wish lo bo discour teous 10 any gentleman, and a? it might be inferred from the !an?ua;jo used that lie intended to insinuate that the resolution wa? designedly tal.-o, he assured the House and ilio gentioman from Wisconsin that lie had no such inteutiou, and ho cordially boiled tho gentloman's par don for saying anything that hiight 1>? so construed. Mr. Wa?hiiirsr, frep.) of Wis . did not suppose that It was the intention of the gentleman from Vermont (Mr. Woodbrldge) to attr.butc to him the introduction of a rosoluliou conlalning falsehood?, although be confessed that the language used seemed to him at the time most discourteous. He availed himself of the opportunity to sIioa- up the frauii'ilent nature ot the claim, w-bich was part of th.' Mississippi scheme and derived from a grant made hy tho King oi France to John Law. or South sen bubblo notoriety, in 1717. He denounced thu Claim as utterly KromidleoM and fraudulent. Mi.

His own impression was decidedly agaiuat the claim. ilr Bakkk, (rep.) of III., another member of the Com mittee on Pritato 1-and Claims, denied that he had con curred with a ftUggostUtD made by Mr. Har"? tUat the case onglit tone reopened, and ii there was fraud In it that fraud could ?" discovered aud defeat.-d. Mr. Wooihir.imk, admitting that as to Messrs.

The committee bad rcli. d considerably on tbe report made bv Senator Harris, chairman of the Senate Committee on Private Land claims, and also on tbe action of a previous corn untie^ of the House, and on tbe bill having frequently pa*?cd one House or t he other.

ALfUKT, March 12, I SOT. ?LAKH 01 111* RIPCBUCAM FOUTlCIAiaL The proceedings la the Senate last evening, wfcen another bill for ih? organization of a commteKiou, thl tinio to supervise (he railroad* of the State, received several fatal wound*, which loavu very little hope for the life of the measure, Indicate the reluctance with which the present Legislature is disposed to enact any measure that may tend to make the parly more unpopu lar in certain quarter* The last election was too cloce a shave, and t s feared that a persistence in the obnoxious legislation which rolled up such a tremendous majority ,u the city las November will reader certain at the next election a do* feat which waa imminent at the 1am. The Ra'Uoad Commissioners contemplated in the measure lust re' ferred to were to be four in number, with salaries of $fi,900 each per annum. The latter portion of the bill provides for the endowment of railroads by tlie State, it the into of $5 000 per mile. This unnecessary if not outrageous measure was considered in I'ommittee of the \\ ho'o last evening, when the first sixteen sections?the hill has twoniy in all, and even eleven large pages of type?were stricken out. The com-iderntlon of the re mainder of the bill was postponed in consequouce of the absence of n quorum. The republicans feel serious alarm over the record of (he pa-t twelve months, and are aaxlous to retrieve ' their mibstops. The lethargic Don Field, who seldom is se n in motion even on the most important occasions, and yet., from bis quiet retreat, like a true magician, i omurols the movements of his machine, has beeu very active of late, and may bo "ecu In the lobby or In the House, or m >re frequently in some nook of the Delavan parlors, in earn-st converse with the memlvr# of his party. It will be noticed that the democratic members have not boen oxercisod during this session for the repeal of any of these measures. Whatever lobbying hM been done sj,aiust them bus been by men directly interested through bus'ness aud other reasons. Thus tho pr-ssure for the repeal or modification of the Excise law had been applied by liquor dealers and men interested In the liquor business from New York. That this measure will Ik- ma le very much less stringent In Its provisions there Is little or no doubt. The.'o will, of course, be tbe usual filibustering to retain the frendship of the tompeianco advo<*a(cs, whose party Is becoming quite a political power; but a sliding scale of license charges will he adopted; conc scion." made to the Germans for tbe indulgence iu their national beverage; a limited Sunday trallic permitted and tho stores allowed (o open at an ear.y hour to accomodate th"SO whose occu pations require (In their own opinion) tho use of a morn inp stimulant, such as market-men, drovers, bu'ehors and oiber industrious ciilzons With these changes the law, under the pressor > which Is upon liio Legislature from every section, will bo extended to the wliolo Stato. THK SUTKOIVLITAN KvllKKT company bill has advanced to a third reading in the Senate and will very probably pasa This company will give New York a system of markets on tho Philadelphia plan?so much admired by all who have seen its work ing.
