truer from tin*. Xoiinu*1 4’ai»ilnl. Washington. D. C., Dec- 10i IStOT. To ini: K.ditou of the Press: THE FORTIETH CONGRESS. Discussion is now progressing upon the hill offered by Gen. Schenck, fixing the time lor each Congress to assemble, upon the Fourth of March next. When this bill was introduced ex ceptions were made by representatives from California and Connecticut, relating to their spring elections. In those States, as in lour others, the inembeTS of Congress are not elect ed till spring, and in the case of California not until after Congress assembles. 1 be l ulifornia members state that these Stales must be un represented in the Fortieth Congress, as the season,-snow in the mountains and ram in the lowland,-will prevent the casting of the State vote by preventing the citizens from go ing to the polls. fn the case ot Connecticut it appears that tlio election is not holden till April, and that the registry of voters is under the present law not made until the proposed time of meeting. It being understood however a special bill would he presented from the Committee on Elections, fixing on a uniform time of electing representatives to Congress, all opposition was withdrawn. The hill is now on its passage, the roll being called as I write. Every Republican is voting for it, and the subject considering its bearings, fails to excite much attention. Its success is of course a foregone conclusion. The hill of General Sclienck provides that no luemner or senator wno nas ueeu rceiecieu to the incoming Congress shall receive any mile age for coming to the same. This is rendered necessary as such members will not leave their seats before taking them In the new body. THE DISTRICT SUFFRAGE QUESTION. I am informed on the best authority, that the Senate District Committee have not determin ed to present any bill qualifying the suffrage here by any artificial test of intelligence. This statement has been made by the New York Tribune and other journals. Considerable l'eoliug has been aroused by the statements, and in response to the inquiries Gov. Morrill has given assurance that no bill other thpn one of manhood suffrage for all loyal citizens has been discussed in committee. Senator Wilson, as well as others are very emphatic in their declarations against an im partial qualified suffrage subterfuge. Mr. Wilson declares that he esteems the battle for univer sal suffrage, a battle fought and won , and that with his consent no loyal man shall fail of full enfranchisement, and none now possessed of the ballot shall be disfranchised. This declaration of Gen. Wilson is the ex pression of the majority so far as I have had an opportunity of knowing the same. The col ored people of the District are just entering on an active canvass. They will hold the first of a series of meetings, in a couple ot days, at which speeches will be made by Dr. Sidney of Miss., Judge Sherwood of Texas, Hon. W. H. Smith, and J. Milton Saffold of Ala., and by others. Tiie country has no idea at all ot the manner in which the colored citizens of the District are outraged by the municipalities of Washing ton and Georgetown. I ought to except the latter now, as it has done better of late. Take the matter of schools. In the first place there are t welve thousand white children in Wash ington, while school accommodations are pro vided only for about^b e thousand. There are nearly as many colored children, for whose ac commodation outside of the benevolent organ izations, there are but two schools. This is not the fault of the Board of Trustees for colored schools, who are empowered by Congress with the care of these institutions. It is a together due to the conduct of the city government.— Congress provided in l&ii'J for an equitable pro rata of all school taxes being used for colored schools. The municipal authorities failed alto gether in such duty. The Board of Trustees was then appointed. Then the city fathers made no separate tax, and thus evaded the law, Congress made a law compelling them to make such assessment. Since that the Board has been unable to collect but eight thousand dol lars of the amount due. There is now thirty two thousand dollars due from the city to the ♦colored schools. The various Freedincns Associations operat ing here have over fifty schools under their di rections, and over five thousand scholars. The better class of colored residents support twelve excellent private schools. Is not this a dis graceful record? THE ADMISSION OF COLOBADO AND NEBRASKA. A caucus of Republican Senators was held on Saturday which was however but thinly at tended. The Senators-elect from the two em bryo States,—Messrs. Chaffee and Evans of Col orado, and Gen. Thayer and Tipton of Nebras ka,—attended and made statements in relation to the, population and material condition of their respective sections. The Colorado repre sentives are understood to have made an impor tant statement relative to the Pri sident’s con duct upon the veto of their bill. Last session it came to my knowledge that the President had in some way proposed to the Senators elect that, if they would act with his friends in the Senate, he would sign the bill for the admission of Colorado. It is understood that at the caucus, Messrs. Chaffee and Evans, made a definite statement as to this proposition, which was made in direct term3to them some four or five days before the veto was sent in, and was by them (Senators elect) refused as directly. I have not the least doubt of the substantial truth of this state ment. The facts will come out in the Senate, when the discnsBion is renewed upon the Col orado veto, as it will be at an early date.— The probability now is that both Colorado and Nebraska will be admitted. KIDNAPPING OF FREEDMEN. From loyalists who have lately left some of the cotton States, it is repoited that the kidnap ping of freedmen and their sales in Cuba, which has been at various times reported, is go ing on quite openly. From Northern and Central Alabama it is declared that this ne farious business is quite active and open. DISCUSSION ON THE MESSAGE. Mr. Blaine struck the keynote of the discus siou to-day in one of the tersest and most com pact little speeches I have heard in this Con gress. The House was in Committee of the whole on tl»c Message, Mr. Stevens having yielded the floor to Mr. Blaine, the latter pro ceeded to affirm that the late election decided that no terms less than the Constitutional Amendments would be acceptd for the admis sion of any rebel State,—hut that the people demanded more, and asked no less than a full settlement ol the question of reconstruction upon the basis of universal manhood suffrage. No more compact statement of the case will bo made this session. Spectator. the markets. TEliEUilARHIC REPORTS. Finaurinl. , New Yoke, Dec. 13. Tlie Post ssys the stuck market h irregular.
