Tub Pkoi‘ohki> Amkndmbdt to Tine Constitution.—The following is the joint resolution to amend the Constitution as it passed the Senate on Friday: lie it llexolced, by the Senate and House of Kepreseutatives of the United Stab's of America, in Congress assembled, two thirds of both Houses concurring, that the follow ing article he proposed to the Legislatures of the several States, which, when ratilied by tbree-fourtbs ol said Legislatures, shall be valid to all iutents and purposes, as a part of the said Constitution, uamely: Article 13, Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punish ment lor crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the Uuited States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction. Section 3. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legisla tion. The vote was as follows:— Yeas—Messrs. Anthony, Drown, Chandler, Clark,Collamer.Couness,Cowan, Dixon.Doo little, Fessenden, Foot, Foster, Grimes, Hale, Henderson, Howard, Howe, Johnson, Lane of Indiaua, Lane of Kansas, Morgan, Morrill, Nesmith, Pomeroy, Ramsay, Sherman, Sprague, Sumner, Ten Eyck, Trumbull, Van Winkle, Wade, Wilkinson, Wiley, Wilson,— 38. Navs—Messrs. Davis, Hendricks, McDou gall, Powell, Kiddle, Saulihury,—0. New Steel-clad Blockade-runners.— Four new paddle-steamers, built of steel, aud of great speed, are about ready to leavo Liverpool to eugage in running tbe blockade. They are named the Badger, Let Her B, Fox, and Let Her Rip, and were built for the ser vice. Another report says that these vessels were to have a trial of speed in a race to tbe Isle of Man on the 20th of March. The Lon don Post says: Five hundred thousand bales of cotton, are staled to be now in the hands of the Con federate Government, while two hundred thousand would sutllce to pay off the whole loan. A large amount of bonds have already beeu delivered and cotton received in ex change, according to agreement. There is apparently, increased facility for running the blockade, and the difference between the de livery price of cotton iu the Southern ports aud that obtained for it in Liverpool may stimulate the purchase of bonds; indeed, the principal buying for the last week has been on Liverpool account. There are also, as we before stated, other negotiations in progress, to which we shall probably before long have again to refer. Ax Injured Husband. — The Chicago Tribune is responsible for tbe following: A man who has been abseut from his family for the past three years, returned home unex pectedly on Monday last, and going to his home found a baby about six mouths old sleeping on the bed in his wife’s apartment. Enraged at this evidence of jicrfldy, he too k the child roughly from the bed and threw it violently on the door. CM course the little one scfeaiued; the wife rushed to the scene; aud the husband commenced to pour out upon her a torrent of the vilest abuse — but was suddenly reduced to silence by the informa tion that the baby belonged to a neighbor. The lady being there to substantiate her claim, and engaging immediately in soothiug the sufferer at the maternal fount, there was no room left for doubt. The angry man begged that the story be kept silent, but the mother of the child was in no mood for that sort of thing, and it is now the laugh of the neighliorhood. Fortu nately the child was not seriously injured. The “outraged husband” has been as good natured as you please since then. Gkx. Grant axd the Soldiers.—It is said that when General Grant was going down to Washington one day last week, the train, having attached to it the special car, stopped at Brandy Station, some soldiers who were waiting to go dowu asked if they could not get into the car. “No,” was the answer of an officer; “this is General Grant's special car.” Whcreupou Grant, who was sitting by the window, spoke and said. “General Grant occupies only one seat; tbe soldiers can ride.” Catawba Brandt.—An unpleasant de velopment was made in Cincinnati the other day concerning Catawba brandy, responsi ble vinters, declaring that the pure article would cost from five to eight dollars a gallon, addiug that there was no genuine article of the kind in the market—the quality general ly sold consisting of pornac, whisky aud fusel oil. 13.
