[special dispatch to the DAILY PJRESS.] State House, Augusta, Jan. 7. In the Senate a communication was received from Hon. Nathan J. Hichborn, transmitting an annual statement ot the receipts and dis bursements of tbe Treasury Department. On motion of Mr. Hobson, of Lincoln, the report was referred to a joint select committee consisting, on the part ol the Senate, of Messrs. Holbrook, of Cumberland, Hersey, of Penob scot, and Fairbanks, of Franklin, to ha joined by the House. In the House nothing of importance. The Joint Standing Committees will be an nounced to-morrow (Tuesday). WASHINGTON. The District Suffrage Bill. THE PRESIDENT’S VETO. Proposed Reduction of the Ra tional Debt. Washington, Jan. 7. The President to-day returned to the Sonate the bill entitled “Au act to regulate the elective franchise in the District of Columbia," with a message reciting his objections thereto. He says first, that at a special election held in December, 186G upou this issue, 7,387 votes Were cast against negro suffrage, whilo only 36 were cast iu its favor; and believing it to be a local question, which the inhabitants of the District should be permitted to settle as may seem best suited to their interests, he returns the bill to the Senate, in the hope that they will agree with him in this opinion. He fur ther argues that although the District, upon its Cession to the general government, became the suoject ol exclusive legislation, the law malt ing power of the national Legislature is not without limit, but that Congress is bound to observe the letter and spirit of the Constitu tion as well in malting laws for the seat of gov ernment as in the legislation concerning the entire Union. The relations of Congress to the inhabitants of the District are analogous to that of a Legislature to the people of u State. It seems therel'oro only just that they should have like respect for the will aud opin ions of its inhabitants. The Constitution in spirit requires that the will of the people BUould exert a reasonable influence in making any law having a permanent bearing upou them. Would the Legislatures of New Yurk, Pennsylvania, Indiana or any other State iu the Union force upon them all persons of the African race as voters, eligible lor otfioe, in op position to tlie expressed will? It seems iu cousistant with the principles of right aud jus tice that the Representatives of States where suffrage iB denied to negroes, or permitted upou certain conditions, should compel people of the District to try experiments they are unwilling to; nor does it seem consistent that the prin ciples of self government should lose lorce as to the District because its legislators are not responsible through the ballot to those they govern. Measures to one community might not he adapted to another, aud the decision of such questions should be left to those directly affected. The number of negroes in this Dis trict has largely increased within live years.— Lying near to Marylaud aud Virginia, during the war it became a place of refuge lor tliose who escaped from servitude, ana is yet the abiding place ol a considerable proportion of those who sought its limits as shelter from bondage, until then held in slavery. The ave nues of intelligence and freedom are just open ed to them, aud it is well to pause aud in quire whether after so brief a time they are, as a class, capable ol' intelligent exercise of suf frage or qualified to discharge the duties of offi cial position. People who are daily witnesses of their mode of living, and are familiar with their habits, have decided that they are not capable to perform either, with right of suf frage. Their numbers, already largely in ex cess of the demand for labor, would be increas ed by the influx from adjoining States. It is within their power in one year to come into the District iu such numbers as to control the white race, govern by their own officers and exercise the power oi taxation over property iu which they have no interest. He does not believe the franchise necessary to tlieir iuter es s or rights, aud considering the elective franchise the highest attribute of the Ameri can citizen, apprehends great danger from un timely extension of it to any new class who do not comprehend its duties aud responsibilities. The President then proceeded to discuss the relations between Legislative and Executive Departments, quoting Judge Story against Legislative centralization. The 4th U. S. Cavalry has left San Antonio, Texas, for the frontier. Several companies of regulars have also proceeded to the frontier aud interior towns.

Additional documents were transmitted to the House to-day by the President, in answer to a resolution ol that body concerning the arrest of John H. Surratt. They relate prin cipally to the proceedings preliminary to that event.

He is now on board the Swatara, on his return to America.” The President sent a message to the House to-day, stating that it is not expedient to com municate the correspondence relative to the Island of San Juan.

This Compa ny will not allow any policy to lapse or be forfeited. Its Policies are incontestible alter death. It will insure any one. Ordinary and inferior or impaired lives are the very ones that most need as surance. It will insure better than Ordinary lives by rating younger, thereby lowering the Premium. If health is impaired the Company will insure by rating older, thus raising the Premium. How long is he to live? is the important question. It insures on the 5, 10 or 20 equal payment plan, and at any time will give a “paid-up Policy for what his payments justly entitle him.** This Company will allow the assured to pay week ly, monthly, quarterly, or annually. It does uot restrict those insured at ordinay rates, either in travel or in residence. It issues Endowment Policies “ in which the assur ed will, in additiou, share in all the Premiums paid ; by shorter lives.” 1 It is a cash Company, but will insure on the Part Note or all Note plan, if the party understands its effects and prefers it, and will pay the insured what ever Dividend he requests, if the Premium is made sufficiently large. It issues Annuities and Assurance on Joint Lives. Clergymen and Teachers assured at net cost. Agents nml Solicitors Wonted. Call or send for “ Circular.” WM. G.
