The number of lives lost by the burning ol tile steamer Fashion, on the lower Mississippi, a few days ago, was greatly underrated. The number of passengers on board was nearly 400, and less than nnc-lourth were saved. The ma jority of the lost were negroes, who were tak ing a holiday journey. Is ot less than 200 freed iueu perished m the liauies and river. Twen ty-one hundred hales of cotton were piled around the guards, and not only made a furi ous lire, hut surrounded the deck passengers with a wall of Hume. Louisville, Ky., Jan. 2. The particulars of the loss of tne steamer Fashion are ret eived. The disaster occurred wheu she was about seven miles above Baton Bunge, the tire being caused by sparks from the chimney. It spread with such rapidity that the effort to cneck it was of no avail and boat and passengers bad to be abandon ed to their fate. The Fashion had oil hoard 2,700 hales ol cotton. The cabin passengers on hoard num bered one hundred, hut their names are not given in consequence of the destruction ol the register and papers of the boat. The deck passi ugers were mostly negroes. They leaped wildly into the Wat r, and very few, if any, were saved. The peup.o to escape the tlames ran backwards and fur war is until driven in to a compact mass, when they Mould map ov erboard and perish. The pilot, Thomas aiou tague, remained at his post until driven off by the dames, wheu he walked to the steru und was never seen afterwards. Mr. Fair child, tne engineer, stuck to the boat until too late to escape, and perished in the liauies. The steward and second male were also lost. Capt, Bratt saved several ladies by wading into the river, putting them into a yawl and padding it witn a portion of the state room blinds. The ladies were from Mississippi.— Capt. Bratt was almost dead from exhaustion, but dually succeeded in reaching Baton Buuge. 'The mate leaped into the water and reacued the shore by swimming. A lady pos seuger threw Uer three children into the river, and then leaped alter them. The mother and one ol the children were afterwards rescued, but the other two .children were lost. The panic on board the steamer was feariul, and the mate, who describes the scene, says in nineteen years ot steamboating be never saw such a sight, lie Mas about the last to leave the burning vessel. Two ladies Mho came on board at Bayou Sara were among the lost. Terrible Epidemic at St. Thomas. AFFAIRS AT ST. DOMISOO. Kevolutionaiy Outbreaks iu tbe m Argentine Confederation. St. Thomas, W.

Grant for Pres ident by the Democrats. Bill for the Impeachment of the President. THE TARIFF HILL Decision of the Steamer Spring bok Case. Bill to Organize the Militia. AFFAIB8. Washington, Jan. 2. A number of prominent Democrats are soon to meet at Springfield. 111., and put Gen. Grant in nomination for the Presidency. Mr. Morris, formerly a member of Congress from Illinois, is said to be at the. head of the movement. Mr. Ashley, of Ohio, has prepared a bill for the impeachment of the President, which he intends to introduce in the House Monday next, and which, he says, he is assured will pass in that body. The Secretary of the Treasury to-day sent to the House of Representatives the report of the Special Commissioner, David A. Wells, on the revenue. The pamphlet comprises 128 pages, i ho report recognizes the demand for a change of the tariff. This cannot be sought for on rev enue grounds because the tariff is already high ly productive, and the revenue has already reached a point much larger than was over an- : ticipated. The reason for the change must be ' tin; industrial condition of the country, the ! causes of which, through their resultant of high prices, have produced disturbing effects on our industry, and are stated to be: First, the scar- , city of labor, especially skilled labor. The sec- i mid cause to which the present inflation of I prices may be attributed, is the adoption on the part of the Government of a measure of value as a medium of exchange, and as a legal tender of an irredeemable paper currency. Third, of causes—and perhaps the most influential is the extent of the burden of national taxation—in volving excessive and unwise legislation. Ex tensive duplication of taxes in turu entails and maintains unuue eunaucement ot prices; the I decrease of both production and consumption, and, consequently of wealth; restriction of ex portation and of foreign commerce, and a large increase in the machinery and expenses of col lection. Remedies are next discussed. The Commissioner says: II is not clear that legis lation can bo made available to relieve the scarcity oi labor. Tiie evil growing out ot this cause must in course of time cure itself. The remedy for the second cause is to be found in the return to specie payments. The third rem edy lies wholly within the control of the legis lative department of the Government. The Commissioner then describes in what manner and to what extent can the reduction of exist ing taxes be now made compatible with the re quirement of the Treasury for administration expenditures, interest, and desirable and cer tain reduction in the principal of the national debt. The Commissioner recommends, first, a reduction of the present general tax of 5 per cent, on products aud sales of manufacturing industry to 3 per cent., aud a corresponding re duction in specific taxes levied on analagous branches of industry. Second—Tho entire re moval of all direct internal taxes now levied on productions of bar, plate and sheet trou, aud ot such additional taxes as are levied upon the elements of the manufacture of steel. Third— The reduction of the tax of 21-2 per ceut. on the gross receipts of sugar refiners to 11-2 or 1 per cent. Fourth—'The entire removal of in ternal revenue duty on sulphuric aoid, and upon mining and the manufacture of emory. ififth—The entire removal of the internal rev enue tax upon the manufacture of salt. Tho total amount of reduction of revenue conse quent upon the adoption of the above recom mendations, taking the receipts of the last fiscal year as a basis of calculation, may be estimated at about thirty-five millions of dol lars. The Commissioner further recommends as a basis of present aud future legislation, the principle of abating the duty on raw material to the lowest poiut consistent with the require ments of the revenue, and placing upon the iree list such raw materials, the product mainly ot trophical countries, as essential elements in the great leading branches of manufacturing industry and do not coma into competition with any domestic products, On the principles laid down the Commissioner prepared a bill, which accompanies the report. Representative Lntlin and other declared in their speeches to various assemblages, that the majority ot Congress in what they did acted in no si>int of malice or revenge toward the South, in voting tor the constitutional amendment, they believed it was for the benefit of both sec- ! cions, aud they urged their auitors to adopt 1 that amendment speedily as a means of restor- j ing the late rebellious States to all their rights and Lrivileges in the Union. Some of the Congressional party sav there is occurring all over the South among the masses j a wonderful political revolution. Heretofore I they have believed that the constitutional I amendment was designed to give suffrage to Che negroes and disfranchise every oue who had sympathized with the rebellion. This belief was entertained by the best educated and most prominent citizens, but on being assured to the contrary, many of them expressed the hope that Congress would forbear to precipitate ac tion until that political subject lAi further can vassed. On their return they found that the views of leading men had undergone a thor ough change, among them three members oi the Virginia Legislature. Other statements are made confirmatory of the facts above state ed, concerning the constitutional mendment. The United States Supreme Court to-day de cided the steamer Springbok case. The vessel was seized in 18fi3, about 200 miles from Nas sau, whither she was bound from London. She was suspected of iuteutiou to ruu the blockade of some Southern port. It was ascertained that her cargo was contraband of war, consist ing iu part of swords aud other military impli meuts, and also buttons marked with the letters “C. S. A.” The southern district of New York condemned both vessel aud cargo, but the U. S. Supreme Court overruled the decree as to the vessel, and afiirined tho condemnation of the cargo on tho ground that the latter was clearly contraband oi war, aud that although there was nothing to show that the Springbok de signed to pursue her journey from Nassau to the Southern blockade ports, the goods were evidently to be carried from Nassau to supply the military forces at that time arrayed against the United States Government. ■lino iiuo uucli u uu) ui iiiucu uxuiunueni ill Congress, especially in the House. The cause of it was owing to the speech and propositions of JMr. Stevens, whicli produced more thau usual agitation, and which will prove the cause of more bitterness at the South. There is a very general feeling among the members of both Houses against any further reduction of the currency, and Senator Sher man himself to-day expressed tho belief that Congress would not interfere with the present currency law at all, or in other words would neither authorize a contraction or reduction. The Senate Committee on Territories have considered the admission of Nebraska. An amendment will be reported making no dis tinction ol color or race, which will harmonize opposing views. The same principle will apply to Colorado. Jtepresentativo Hogan to-day introduced a hill to organize, arm and discipline the militia, and other purposes. It provides that all able uodied male persons who shall have been born or naturalized in the United States, or shall have declared their intentions to become citi zens, or snail have actually voted at any State or territory election, and ad between the ages of id and 45 shall be enlisted in the nulitia.— The national guard of the United States shall consist of two regiments of infantry organized of volunteers from the enlisted militia in each district and territory represented in Congress, one of which shall be composed of colored men of more than one-third of the enrolled militia el such districts or territory. No persou shall be au officer or private in the national guard who shall be disqualitiod for, or exempt from enrollment in the inilitic, or shall have volun tarily borne arms against the United States or given countenance or aid to the rebellion, or accepted office under the late Confederacy. It provides that Congress may order out the whole national guard to execute the laws of the United States. c-oinmissioner nowara, or mo rreeameui Bureau, iu a letter to tlie Secretary of War, in answer to a resolution of Congress, reports that while the colored population has decreased in Virginia, North and South Carolina, Arkansas and Missouri, it remains about the same iu Florida,Mississippi and Louisiana, aud has in creased in Texas aud Tennessee. He says the Assistant Commissioners of the States of Lou isiana, Florida and Arkansas report increased disposition upon the part of the freedmen to take advantage of the homestead act. He sub mits a synopsis of the laws of the Southern States in regard to freedmen, and says the re ports of Assistant Commissioners contain evi dence that the manner of executing laws on the part of the magistrates and jurors in some parts of the S^uth does great injury to tue need people. The ueeess.ty oi enforcing Gen eral Order, No. 44, from the headquarters of tho armies oi the United States, in Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas, by the Assistant Com missioners is mlly established. The decisions ol some ot the district Judges in Mississippi, that the civil rights bill was unconstitutional, lias robbed freedmen of privileges intended to be secured to them by that law. The civil rights bill is notiu full operation in some por tious of the South, and consequently, many criminals are at large. The Assistant Commis sioners generally, favor the contract system, as freedmen iu most cases, fill their obligations. Tueir employers have, as a general thing, set tled with the freedmeu iu accordance with the terras of the contracts; yet when auy of them have failed to do so, the State laws have not in all eases ati'orded the freedmen the proper rem edies and protection. F'or this leason the As sistant Commissioners report that they have relieved the evil as far as it was possible by as suming the guardianship of the freedmen as contemplated by the jaws of Congress. He calls special attention to. the vagrant laws of Maryland, Georgia, AXississippi, Louisiana and Texas. The small time allowed after the expi ration of one contract before the person must enter on another to escape vagrancy, will occa sion practical slavery. The arrest of assem bled persons as vagrants upon information giv en by any party, tueir trial by a justice of the peace, aud the sale ot their invoices at a public outcry lor the payment of the fine and cost, without limit os to time, and the whipping and working iu the chain gangs, present some oi the obnoxious features of the irregular laws. Secretary Seward’s recent departure from Wasiiingtuu is solely to seek a warmer clime for tfie benefit of his health. It is said that ttie District Suffrage bill bas been presented to the President for signature. A veto is anticipated. The Constitutional Amendment. Albany, Jan 3.

On motion of Mr. Fessenden the bill and re port were referred to the Finance Committee, and 2000 copies of the report and 600 copies of the bill ordered to be printed. Mr. Chandler presented a protest against any curtailment of the National currency_ Referred to the Finance Committee. Mr. Morgan presented a remonstrance of the New York merchants againat any change in the duty on sugar; also a remonstrance against increased duty on linseed; also a remonstrance against increased duty on steel. Referred to th^inance Committee. Siv. Trumbull presented a protest against the curtailment of the National currency — Referred. Mr. Sumner introduced a resolution direct ing the Judiciary Committee to inquire if leg islation on tho Constitutional amendment was necessary to prevent the sale of persons into slavery for a term of years as punishment for crime. Mr. Sumner, on presenting the above, called attention to cases which had come under his observation, in which colored persons have been sold by order of the Criminal Courts in Maryland. It seemed to him that Congress ought to have the opinion of the Judiciary Committee as to the right of the State to inflict such punishment, After debate the resolution was adopted. Several memorials and petitions were pre sented. Mr. Sumner introduced a resolution to in quire what legislation was necessary to sup press peonage. Modified and passed by com mon consent. Mr. Howard offered a resolution instructing tho Committee on Fublio Lands to inquire what legislation was necessary to protect the interest of the United States in lands granted for railroad purposes before the completion of railroads, and in homestead lands before the issue ol patents. Adopted. The unfinished business of the last day of the session, which was the bill to admit Ne braska, was taken up. Mr. Wade objected, and the bill was postpon ed until Monday. Mr. Edmunds gave notice that he would to morrow call up the bill to regulate the tenure of office. Mr. Howard gave notice ol his intention to offer amendments to the laws against Polyga my in Utah, rendering their provisions more effective and their penalties more severe. The bill to repeal that section of the confis cation act giving the President power to grant a general amnesty, was called up by Mr. Trum bull, but its consideration was postponed until to-morrow. Mr. Sumner called up the bill to prevent and punish persons fraudulently inducing negroes to emigrate, and pending its consideration the Senate adjourned. HOOSB. Tim House met at noon. The Speaker presented a communication from the Secretary ot the Treasury, transmit ting a report of David A. Wells, Commissioner of Revenue, with a tariff bill prepared by him as a substitute for Customs laws now in force, stating that the opinion aud conclusions of Mr. Wells, with very slight exceptions, met with his (the Secretary’s) hearty approval, aud com mending the report and bill to the careful con sideration of Congress. Referred to the Com mittee on Ways aud Means. Mr. Stevens, from the Committee eu Appro priations, reported the military academy ap propriatinn bill. Read twice and referred to the committee of the whole, and made the special order f jr Monday. Ou motion of Mr. Wavhburne, of Illinois, the Secretary of the Treasury was directed to com municate to the House the results of the inves tigation made by his Department, into t ie loss of the Evening Star, and was also directed to institute inquiry into the loss of the steamer Commodore, in Long Island Sound, aud report what further legislation is necessary for the protection of passengers on steam vessels. Mr. Wentworth begged leave to offer the following: Seaolved, That the Judiciary Committee be instructed to report what measures if any, can be taken to prevent the Supremo Court from releasing and discharging the assassins of Mr. Lincoln, and conspirators to release the rebel prisoners at Camp Douglas, in Chicago, under color and pretence of the law ot 1883, and also to inquire into the expediency of repealing said law. Mr. Eldridge objected. Mr. Hubbard, ot Connecticut, offered a reso lution declaring that the House will not con sent to the appropriation of the first dollar for property destroyed by the Union army, while engaged in putting dowu the rebellion. Re ferred to the Appropriation Committee. Mr. Maynard asked leave to offer a resolu tion instructing the Committee ou Ways and Means to inquire into the expediency of re deeming compound interestTreasury notes and rive-twenty bonds with Treasury notes bear ing interest at not less than three or more than five per cent. Mr. Eldridge objected. The House proceeded to the consideration of the bill reported by Mr. Stevens on the 30th of April, from the join select Committee on Re construction, to provide for restoring to the States lately in insurrection, their full politi cal rights; the question being on a substitute proposed therefor by Mr. Stevens on the 19th of December. The substitute having been read, Mr. Brig ham made a point of order that as the 8tli sec tion provided for the admission of rebel States on compliance with the conditions prescribed, the substitute must be referred to the Commit tee on Reconstruction. The Speaker overruled the point of order as that bill had been reported from the committee and was before the House subject to amend ment. Mr. Stevens made a long and powerful speech in support of the bill. Without disposing of the question the House went into committee of the whole. Mr. Kelley addressed the House on the questions of finance and tariff. The committee was afterwards addressed by Mr. Holmes. The committee then rose. Mr. Eldridge sent up a resolution declaring the conduct of Mr. Stevens in reporting the bill in reference to the seceded States, a crime, deserving of the reprobation of the House. Mr. Ashley objected, and the resolution went over. The House then adjourned. MISXICO. Preparation for Vie Departure of Foreign Troops. Outrage ou uu American Citizen. NewYork, Jan. 3. Mexican correspondence, dated Vera Cruz, Dec. 22, says Maximilian has issued a decree arranging for the payment of the Austrian and Belgian troops and their transportation to Eu rope. The appointment of Miramon and Mar quez is believed by both parties to portend ac tive operations. Guerrillas made an effort to capture Maximilian, but without success. Mr. Morehead, au American citizen in San Luis Potosi, was sent to prison for refusing to pay his quota of a forced loan by Mejia. Gen. Castleman is dangerously ili with a fe ver. Baltimore, Jan. 3. Details of news from Mexico per steamer Al liance have been received. In the address of the Ministers they state that the sources of revenue having been ar ranged everything possible will be done to place them once more in regular operation. The Emperor asks that vigorous arrange ments be made for restoration and mainten ance of peace. Much, he says, will depend on the people if they would secure protection for themselves. What they had most t o fear was a French rising of malcontents and murderers when the French troops had withdrawn. The Emperor expresses his regrets at the at titude which the United States has shown to exhibit towards him. The Mexican Times has changed both its editors and its policy. The Estafette had done the same. Important French correspondence is miss ing, and as the courier that bore it is reported killed the correspondence, it is presumed, lias been captured. Outrages ou Frmfmfn. New York, Jan. 3. The Tribune’s Nashville despatch says the Superintendent of the Freedmens’ Bureau here has just received a communication from the Agent at Springfield, Robesson -County, earnestly soliciting troops, and stating that a band of outlaws from Southern Ketuckv had crossed the line, and were committing all sorts of outrages ou Freedmeu, burning their dwel lings and compelling them to nee for their lives.
