Lost and Found.—Late Thursday night a gentleman came into our office and adver tised a port monaic containing a sum of money as lost. He could not tell where he had lost it. He remembered taking it out in a shop to pay a small bill, and then getting into his wagon aud returning home. He found it was missing when lie arrived. Yesterday morning he traced Ilia steps from his house to the shop where he had taken out his port monaic, ex amining the ground very closely. To his greut satisfaction he discovered the port tnonaie in the middle of the street, with the contents (about $440,) all safe. It bad worked out ot bis pocket.

Mr. Morrill introduced a till to promote the foreign and coasting trade. Referred to Committee on Commerce. Mr. Trumbull, from the Judiciary Com mittee, reported adversely on the joint reso lution to establish a new rule ol the (senate, requiring Executive nominations to lie consid ered ill open session. Mr. Sherman introduced a hill to provide for a national currency, secured by United States stocks, and to provide for the redemp tion thereof. Referred to the Committee on Finance. Mr. Harlan introduced a bill for the relief of certain friendly Iudians of the Sioux na tion. lieferred to the Committee on Indian Adairs. Mr. Morrill introduced a bill extending the jurisdiction of District Courts. Referred to Committee on Commerce. Mr. Howard introduced a joint resolution to extend the time for the reversion to the United States of lands granted to the Mar quette Railroad. Referred to Committee on Public Lands. On motion of Mr. Wilson, the Secretary of War was directed to communicate informa tion touching the recent arrest of Col. C. B. Ferguson, Quartermaster U. >. A., and Capt. William Stoddard, A. Q. M., lately in charge of the military depot at Alexandria. On motion of Mr. Anthony, it was resolved that the Committee on Naval Affairs he in structed to inquire into the expediency of placiug the professors ol Ethics, Spanish and of Drawing in the Naval Academy on the same footing with other professors. Mr. Howard introduced the House bill to secure the title to certain lands in Rock Island, III., which caused some debate, hut without action the subject went over at the expiration of the morning hour. M r. Hale called up the bill to repeal the first section of the joint resolution of Feb. 24,1S04, relative to the transler of persons from the military to the naval service, which was passed. The Senate took up the joint resolution amending the Constitution so as to prohitit slavery. Mr. Sumner addressed the Senate at length in favor of the total abolition of slavery, and w as followed by Mr. Powell iu opposition. Mr. Satilsbury proposed an amendment, se curing liberty of press, free speech and re establishing the principle of the Missouri Compromise. Rejected. Mr. Sumuer withdrew his amendment here loiore ouercu. After some remarks by Mr. McDowell, the amendments reported as a substitute for the original bill were adopted—JiS to 0. Adjourned till Monday. HOUSE. Mr. Ganson made a repo, t from the Com mittee on Elections, that neither Mr. Loan, the sitting member, nor Mr. Bruce, the con testant, from the 7th Congressional district of Missouri, are entitled to a seat. The House resumed the consideration of tlie bill to erect a Penitentiary Jail and House of Correction in the District of Columbia. Mr. Patterson, of N. H., replied to the charge made by Mr. Wasliburne, of Illinois, that be (Patterson) had voted tM;!5,000 for extending the Charlestown Navy Yard. An extravagant appropriation, reported to be a swindle, as it turned out to be. He said it was hardly courteous to make such a charge, and proceeded to justify his vote. He (Pat terson) made the general remark that if any man charged him with willully voting for a corrupt branch or swindle lie would (ling back the infamous charge with scorn and contempt into his teeth. Mr. Washburne said that the gentleman yesterday made insinuations against him, and he stood by what he said on that occasion, that the appropriation partook of the charac ter of a swindle. He did not accuse Mr. Pat terson of voting for a corrupt fraud, but for what turned out to be a swindle, not intend ing any reflection on any man iu the House. Mr. Patterson, iu view of this explanation, exonerated Mr. Washburne. Messrs. Morrill and Casson briefly showed that the appropriation was judicious. The bill was recommitted with instructions to inquire into the expediency of reporting an appropriation for a House of Correction. Private business was considered for some time, after which the bill extending the time for States to accept grants of land for agricul tural and mechanic college purposes was taken up. Mr. Holman offered au amendment, provid ing that any State or territory may appropri ate the revenue derived from lands donated to them for the education of orphans, soldiers and sailors. Mr. Morrill and others protested. Rejected. The bill passed with an amendment includ ing the State of Weet Virginia. The House then went into a committee on the-President's aunual message. Mr. Long made a speech of several hours duration. He denied that the opponents ot the Administration were giving aid and comfort to the enemy, and quoted from Ben ton, Seward, Quincy, Adams, Fillmore and others to show that coercion could not be suc cessful under republican system, aud that the last three years of war had proved the truth of the proposition. There were only two questions: 1st, the recoguition of the South ern Confederacy ; 2d, the continuation of the war for the subjugation of tbe South. Of the two he preferred the former. He believed the Democratic party were for peace, aud would he placed in a false position it they nominated a war candidate. Mr. Garfield said he honored hU colleague fur his bravery and liouesty, but was opposed to his sentiments. He spoke at some length, saying that when he was in the army a spy brought in two letters addressed to J. C. Breckinridge. They were commendations of the bearer, who desired to tight the abolition ists. One of them was writtcu by a man wbo lately held a seat ou this floor, and was from Indiana. M nccre I Tail > >. . ■< (' t. il » TIT l ‘a . ... .1 .at. .... ’ -*-1 ' ' ■“•v Uiuun called for the name of the writer. Mr. Garfield said lie had the letter, and would give the name at the proper time. Mr. Long replied to Mr. Garfield, saying lie spoke for himself. After a running debate, participated in by Messrs. Long, Garfield and Holman, the com mittee rose and the House adjourned. H'atthiiifjfyn Jtrporta. New Yokk, April 8. Special dispatches from Washington state that the indications are that the Senate will reject to-day all the substitutes for the anti slavery amendment to the Constitution, and pass the origiual amendment if possible. The Senate Finance Committee will soon take action ou the National Bank bill. Jay Cook writes that the 10-40 loan will prove as great a success as the loan last year. 4 he Chief Quartermaster of the Cavalry liurciiu advertises for 3000 more army horses, delivered here, at $1.50 each. Speaker Colfax gives his last reception this evening. 1 lie last Presidential reception will be next 1 hursday. Various Heme. New Youk, April 8. The prize steamer Cumberland was sold at auction to-day for $50,000. Mrs. Quarles, who concealed for nine days Col. Streight and Capt. Porter, on their escape from Libby Prison, lias arrived at the New Kuglaud Looms, a refugee from Kiclimond. Three small children accompanied her. They were sent outside the rebel lines.

The Bulletin has the following dispatch:— Cincinnati, March 8.—Notwithstanding the rebel Gen. ltulord's assurance that he intends to remain in Western Kentucky, it Is reported that Forrest is manoeuvring to get out of the State by dividing his forces into small detach ments and slipping them off by byways. OpeillMf/ <»/ the Venaberot Hirer. Bangob, April 8. i he ice left the Penobscot to-night and the river is now open to navigation. from Washington. Washington. April 8. Tlie Committee oil Manulacturrs have made a report relative to duties ou wool. They say that the expectation that law grades of wool would not compete with domestic products, has not been realized. The entire duties ol' last year did not produce more than half a million dollars. The total amount of wool imported during the fiscal year was 71,882,123 pounds, costing $12,290,830. Inquiry was made some time ago in rela tion to the case of Maj. X. H. McLeon, to which the Secretary of War lias replied that that officer was ordered to Vancouver, lie cause it was deemed expedient to the service that he should go there, and that it has never been the practice of the Department to fur nish copies of charges affecting the capacity or fidelity of its officers, previous to taking action upon their cases. The Secretary says it is not deemed compatible witli the public interest to make further answer. 1*. appears from an official document of Adj. General Townsend that the number of nine months men under the act of .July, 18G2, was 18,449 volunteers and 83,300 militia. Tlie bounty paid was $25 each; the balance were all Irom Pennsylvania, having been raised by Gov. Curtin. Bounty has been paid to 3934 Vermont nine months men, without the au tboiity of the Department, owing to a mis take of the mustering officers and quarter masters. Senator Grimes' hill for reforming the abuses iu Xaval supplies, which are shown to ex st by tlie conviction of Stover and the arrest of Scofield, Raymond and Savage, lias beeu re ported against by Senator Hale, the Chair man of the Committee on Xaval Affairs. Therefore the old Naval agency system will not probably be changed at present. Tlie greater number of the engineers who have built engines are here, petitioning Con gress. Tlie committee has not yet reported on the claim. To grant the prayer will in crease tlie naval expenditures far beyond the amount already considered as the extreme. The report made by the committee ou Elec tions, iu the case of Mr. Bruce against Mr. Loan, of the 7lh Congressional District of Missouri, is signed by Representative Ganson, for himself, aud Dawes, Voorhes, Baxter and Brown, of Wisconsin. They say tlie evidence disclosed ample proof that a portion of the militia in certain locali ties disregard entirely the injunction given in certain orders, and in many instances iu vio lation of their duty as good citizens and th% commands promulgated prior to their elec tion, these soldiers assuming who should and who should not vote, and for whom votes should he cast, and by threats of violence aud various other modes of intimidation, they so far interl'erred with the election as, in the opinion of the committee, to render it a nulity. They therefore report that neither Mr. J.oan, tlie sitting member, nor Mr. Bruce, the con testant, is entitled to the seat. Representatives Smithers ami Scofield, of tlie minority, see no reason for invalidating the election, and hence Uiey join in a resolu tion that Loan is entitled to the place he now occupies. Chief Justice Taney resinned his seat on the bench in the Supreme Court to-day, having entirely recovered from his sickness of three or four months duration. I tirioUM I trine. New York, April S. The second male aud seven of the crew of the bark Garibaldi have been arrested in Del aware, charged with the murder of the first mate on the voyage from New Orleans to Matanzas. A report from Cincinnati states that there Is great excitement about the sudden disap pearance of the firm of llidwell * Co., Com mission merchants, who have cousuinated a mammoth scheme of swindling, by which a a number of merchants of Cincinnati, Cleve land, Pittsburg and New York, are sufferers. They are supposed to have fled to Canada. , Items from Southern Sources. New Yoke, April 8. The Richmond papers of the 28th ult. re port Gov. Vance, of N.

Dings by, a pet of Jeff Davis, leaviug Morgan with only 50U0 men. A letter from Mobile reports eight Federal vessels still lying oil Fort Powell aud ten oil' Fort Morgan. There is no important news in the papers. Marine IHeaeter. Baltimore. April 8. Capt. Nelson, who was sent down with a steam tug to the assistance of the bark Hava na, has returned to this port. He says the bark lies three miles south of Capo Henry, in side of the breakers, Iter head on shore ami the sea breaking over her. The tug could not get near her on account of the heavy swell. No one was seen on board or on the shore. The vessel will doubtless prove a to tal loss. From Fortress Monroe. Fortress Monroe. April 7. Two steamers, the New York and the Ex press, left to-day under a flag of truce for City Point, to bring down all the Federal oflieers aud soldiers now prisoners of war at Rich mond, about a thousand in number.
