Mr. lisle, from tne Naval Committee, re ported back the resolution introduced by Mr. Crimea yesterday, to repeal the joint resolu tion for the transfer of seamen from military to naval service, accompanied by a report, which was ordered to he printed. Mr. llale alao reported on the hill to amend the act relative to certain officers, and on the hill in relation to supplies; also reported ad versely on the bill relative to paymasters’ clerks with an amendment. Mr. Hale also reported in favor of passing tlie bill to amend the act to regulate the grade of liue officers of the navy; also in favor of the resolution of thanks to Admiral Porter, and the resolution to compensate the crew of the gunboat Huron de Kalb lor losses; also, adversely on the petition of warrant officers. Mr. Morrill offered a resolution for printing 1000 copies of the rsport of the engineers of the Washington acqueduct for the use of the Interior Department. Referred to Committee on Printing. On motion of Mr. Trumbull, the following was adopted: Resolved, That the Secretary of the Inte rior be directed to inform the Senate what amount of fees and emoluments of every kind and character were received by tlte Attorney and Marshal of the United Stales for the Dis trict of Columbia respectively, and by the clerks of the several corn ts for said' District during the year ending Dec. 31, 1803, and what amount was allowed to each of said officers, deputies, clerks, and for other inci dental expenses during the same period. Mr. Davis called up his resolution instruct ing llie Judiciary Committee to enquire Into and report whether or not Mr. Yocum, late of Cairo, is now confined in the .Albany peniten tiary under sentence of court martial, though having received a full pardon from the Presi dent. Mr. Grimes suggested an amendment, and that the committee report to the Senate the charges, Ac., on which Yocum was tried. Mr. Davis accepted the amendment, and ex plained the facts of the case, saying that Yo cum had charge of the contrabands at Cairo, and a loyal slaveholder of Kentucky having come there and taken steps in compliance with the fugitive slave act carried off his run away slave, lor which Yocum was tried, com mitted to the old Capitol here, but subsequent ly pardoned by the President the day after which he was sent to the Albany penitentiary. After further discussion the subject went over informally. Mr. Doolittle called up the House bill ap propriating $300,otto for the benefit of Indian refugees from the Southern and oilier reser vations affected by the rebellious position taken by some ol the tribes. Mr. D. said it was necessary that tbe Indians should get home at once in time to make crops this sea son. Some verbal amendments were made and the bill passed. Mr. Hendricks then proceeded to address the Senate at length in opposition to the joint resolutions to amend the Constitution to pro moil slavery m too umieu Stales,ami iu reply to the speech of Mr. Hale yesterday. He ivas followed by Mr. Ilendersou, who favored the proposed amendment. Mr. Saulsbury submitted the following: Unsolved, That the chaplain of the Senate he respectfully requested hereafter to pray and supplicate Almighty God in our behalf, and not to lecture him, informing him, under pretence of prayer, his said chaplain's opinion iu reference to Ids duty as the Almighty; aud that the said chaplain he further requested as aforesaid not uuder the Ibrm of prayer to lec ture the Senate in reference to his duty as the Almighty; and that the said chaplain he fur ther requested as aforesaid not under the form ol prayer to lecture the S?hate iu relation to questions before the body. Mr. Howard objected to the resolution. The Senate then went iuto executive session and adjourned. HOl'SE. Ou motion of Mr. Garlleld, of Ohio, the Secretary of War was directed to inform the House how many commissioned officers, with their names aud rank, have been dismissed from the military service by authority of the President without trial by court martial since the beginning of the present war, and liow many such dismissals have been revoked. Mr. Garlleld said the resolution was report ed at the instance of the Military Committee. A hill had been passed by the House, hut had been reported upon unfavorably in the Sen ate, taking away from the President the power of summary dismissal. As a communication ou this subject had beeu received from Advocate General Holt, it seemed only just that all the facts should be laid before the House. The resolution was passed. The House then resumed the consideration of the Uaritau A Delaware Uailroad bill. Mr. Woodbridge, ol Vt, argued in favor of the constitutionality and 'expediency of de claring the roads ot the company to be mili tary and post routes. The public should be protected against that legalized monopoly, the Camden A Amboy Uailroad Company, which not only imposed burdens on the people, but crippled the Government iu the performance of its duties. This company, lie says, inter feres witii the elections of that State, aud designates who shall he elected. Mr. Ungers, of Nr. C., remarked that the stalement was false from beginning to end. Mr. Woodbridge took the disclosures as true, according to the best information ol the gentleman; but lie (Woodbridge) has been informed that the Camdeu A A inboy Com pany puts ils foot on such nominations as may not best serve the interests of the great mo nopoly. The subject here went over. Tlie House then proceeded to the consider ation of the special order, mainly busiuess re lating to the District of Columbia. Several local bills were passed; and oue ap propriating $250,000 for the erection of a pen itentiary, jail and house of correction iu the District of Columbia was discussed, but pend ing the moliou to lay it on the table, the House, at a quarter to five, adjourned. The (>trat International TvlnjrnyU . Washington, April 7. Mr.Cullins has returned to Washington,alter nearly two years absence iu ltussia and Eng land, negotiating for a right of way and the construction ol a telegraph across Asiatic ltussia, ltussian America, and British Colum bia, so as to connect Europe with America by way of Bbering Straits,it having been brought to a satisfactory conclusion under favorable terms, and uow awaits the tiual action ol Con gress. We understand that Mr. Collins will soon present the plan to Congress. It is duo to (treat Britain and ltussia that their liberal grants ami concessions iu aid of a purely in ternational work of this nature, an enterprise fraught with incalculable advantages to the L uiled States and the world at large,should command promptly generous aid from the Lj uiled States. It certainly devolves upon our government to second this great enterprise, and more especially now since ltussia and Great Britain have met the question in a lib eral international spirit, and cleared it of all question as to right ol wuy, so as to connect London ami St. Petersburg with New York. There never was an enterprise presented to the consideration of government that pleads more eloquently. It is the last link in a tele graphic chain tliut is to biud not ouly Europe and America, hut Asia and Africa as well, in to one living and speaking unity. — Front WViehint/ton. Washington. April 7. Senator Hale, Chairman of the Naval Com mittee, has now under consideration the nu merous application* for the relief of the en giue and ship builders who have contracted w ith the Navy Department. Congress alone can aid them by direct appropriation. Eive thousand applications have already been mude by seamen to be transferred from the army to the navy. Applications should continue to be made to the Navy Depart ment. It is stated by Senators that a uatioual bank or currency bill, will be passed by the Senate ami sent to the House for its concurrence. ihe Senate, in executive session today, con tinned the nomination of Nicholas L. Humphrey, of Maine, as Cousul at the Island of Trinidad. • Vaihhifffon Report*. New York, April 7» A special dispatch to the Commercial Ad vertiser says: “It is understood that attempts will be made to engrail certain other proposi tions in the anti-slavery amendment to the Constitution, hut it is believed that the Sen ate will vote them all down and pass the ori ginal amendment as it was first drawn. It is said the compensation for reprinting and publishing the debates of Congress in the Globe is to he largely increased, Mr. Hives having given notice that lie cannot continue to report and print them at the prices now paid. It is understood that a number of General Hooker’s friends will give him a public dinner on his return from tiie West. The consolidation of the different corps in the Army of the l’otomac, creates, as might have been expected, much unpleasant feeling among the military. The Xcw Government Loan. New York, April 7. The Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, George Harrington, authorizes the publication of the following: The statement contained in a special dis patch to the New York World of the 7th inst., that the interest on the 10-40 loan will proba bly he raised to 0 per cent., is incorrect.— There is reason to believe that bonds iiear ing .I per cent., principal and interest payable in gold, will command all the money the treas urer will need to borrow. Instructions to the National Banks acting as loan agents who is sued March 20th, ami the subscriptions report ed to the United States Treasurer up to April Cth, amounted to 88.007,871. No doubt is en tertained that the subscriptions will rapidly increase as soon as the various agencies are organized and in operation throughout the country. Front Fortress Monroe. Fortress Monroe, April 5. The steamer New York has left for City Point under a flag of truce, taking up about 30 women and children. The storm continues with great severity. The Vorktown boat has not made iier usual trip to-day. Fortress Monroe, April 0. The schooner Wra.A. Ellis, from New York for Washington, lias put In here for assistance. She reports, on the 2d inst, 25 miles off Cape Henry, encountered a heavy gale, which car ried away the jibbooin. and three men were washed overboard. This morning another man was lost. Additional Foreign \eirn. Halifax, N. S.. April 7. The steamship Kedar,frorn Liverpool March 80th, arrived at six o’clock this evening. She brings the following additional news: London, March 28/A, Morning.—The Morn ing Post in a leader on Poland and Denmark, says: “ We shall be glad to discover that no holy alliance expect to crush the liberties of Europe,.iust as we should wish to learn that the hostility of Germany towards Denmark was prompted by sympathy with copatriots, and not by the abhorrence of libera! views on the one point or on the other. However, we lack the information to justify us in drawing the wished for inferences.” Berlin letters mention that Prince Hopen sollereins Sigmariaugen has left for the seat of war, to endeavor to effect a reconciliation be tween Frederick Charles and Marshal Mangel. M n ri/hi ml h'Hianci/Mliott f~ote, Baltimore, April 7. Talbot county gives 300 and Essex 250 lor the convention and unconditional emancipa tion. Worcester county is incomplete, but no doubt has gone for the convention. Dorset gives 300, Kent 200, Queen Anne C50 and Somerset -UK) against acouvention and for the Democratic ticket. Howard county has gone for the convention, but the delegation is un certain ; it is thought it will be one conserva tive and t wo radicals. Up to this evening the returns do not chaoge the general result as estimated last night. There will doubtless be a good working ma jority for unconditional emancipation. Xrtr Railroad Rout*; in Nrw York. Poughkeepsie, N. Y. April 7. A numerously attended meeting was held at Salt Point, Duches co., yesterday of the friends of the proposed U. Hoad from this city to Uo poke. The farmers along the route tire quite alive to the benefit* such a road would coufer on them, and mustered in strong (orce. A committee was appointed to obtain subscrip tions in tlie various towns. Addresses were made and the !s-st of feeling prevailed. A meeting will be held at Bangall ou the 20th. VuriouH Item*.
