The 4 barges against 4ir«. Tills*». I Col. C. C. Sibley, of the Sixteenth United Infantry, stationed in Savannah, has been ap pointed Assistant Commissioner of the Freed nien’s Bureau for the State ot Georgia, as has been already mentioned,eice Gen. David Tiil eon of Maine, who has been, at his own re quest, honorably mustered out of the service of the United States as Brigadier and Brevet Major-General of Volunteers. The Savannah Republican of the 23d Inst, publishes correspon dence giving in detail certain charges against Gen. Tillson, made by A. Alpiora Bradley, the colored lawyer, and Gen. Tillson’s denial o them. The charges were made in a letter o Senator Wade, which was forwarded by him, with an indorsement, to the Secretary o ar, who referred it to Gen. Howard. a 11 Ci T sent Bradley's letter to Gen. Tillson who, in returning it, pronounced the charges false and malicious, and said: _ I have never, in a single instance, taken freedmen to my plantation under duress on the iruuboat, or in any other way, or compelled them to divide their crops with the former owners ot land granted them by Gen. Sher man’s order. I did not arrest Kev. King Xat nall in his church on Sunday, at Wilmington Island, nor do or cause to be done any of the things charged by Bradley, nor have the ne groes Marcus Barstow, Andrew Washington, and Daniel Williams, made affidavit that I ar rested ltev. King Tatnall, drove the people in to the church,&c., as Bradl :y asserts they have done. * * • Two of the negroes signing this affidavit, have since, in my pres ence, and that of Capt. Pickett, Col. Pritchard, and several other gentlemen, freely admitted that the atlida, it is false—that I did none of the things therein set forth, and that they were led on and induced to make the affidavit by Brad ley. One of them Andrew Washington, after ward returned weeping and with every appear ance of sincere sorrow, humbly begged my par don for the injury he had sought to do me, say ing that it was all Bradley's lault. About a year since, Bradley was arrested and trie 1 by a Military Commission, on the th arge of inciting a riot among the freedmen of this city. He was convicted and sentenced to Fort Pulaski for oue year—the most impor tant witnesses against him being respectable in rsons of color, The Hon. Secretary of War irect.-d that Bradley be released. Soon after, he was found in Augusta attending a Conven tion of freedmen, and openly denouncing the name and memory of President Lincoln. The Hon. Secretary of War ordered him to leave tbe State or go to Fort Pulaski and serve out his sentence. He left the State, hut, since the decision of the Supreme Court of the Unit ed States relative to Military Commissions, he has returned and has exhibited the most extra ordinary activity in visiting diffenent localities, holding public meetings, advising the negroes not to give up the old grants of land held by them, or allow the act of Congress before mentioned to be euforced, but to resist its exe cution by force and arms. Acting under his advice, many of the ireedmen are arraying themlolves against the officers of the Bureau, obstructing them in the perlormance ot their duty, and treating the provision of Congress. ut .ii^ucu OUlOiJ 1U1 utcii nun ujn;u contempt, and otherwise acting in a manner which will inevitably result in irreparable injury to themselves.— More recently his teachings have resulted in open, armed and organized resistance to the authority of the United States in the adjoin ing parts of South Carolina, which, hut for the prudent, careful conduct of Gen. Scott, would have resulted in the most frightful conse quences. For giving the freedmen this mis chevous advice, and writing silly, useless pe titions for them, Bradley is charging exhorbi t mt fees. He has repeatedly and openly de fied the civil, mi'itary and bureau officers, de claring his ability and his intention of invok ing the vengeance of the authorities at Wash ington upon those who dare to execute their orders in a manner which did not meet his ap proval; and lias frequently asserted that blood would flow in the streets it' his advice and dic tation were not accepted. This was regarded as vain, idle boasting; no one for a moment be lieving that a man of Bradley’s character would secure the unquestioned support and indorsement of a Senator of the United States. It is a matter of surprsie and regret that the lionoralbe Senator from Ohio should unhesita tingly express his conviction that the wild and extravagant statements of Bradley are true, 01 that in any way, directly or indirectly, he should lend the influence of his high position to strengthen the hands of such a man in the very great injury he is doing the planters and the freedmen themselves. Senator Wade can by no possibility be in the possession of facte which warrant his belief that I have at any time been guilty of such acts of tyranny, out rage and oppression as those charged by Brad ley. His indorsement is unwarrantable. It conveys a gratuitous insult to one who has habitually exercised more care and felt more anxiety to do juetice to all men than is exhibit ed in this instance by the honorable Senator, whose officially expressed conviction can have no better foundation than his own piejudice. Davis Tillson. Late Brevet Major-General and Asst. Com missioner. The Republican speaks of the two Commiss ioners as follows: Col. C. Sibley, our gentle manly Post-commander, whose excellent dici pline over his troops has won the admiration of our citizens, will at once enter upon his new and surely arduous duties. That ample jus tice will be done both planters and freedmen we have no doubt, while the military experi ance of Col. Sibley will prove of great value in maintaining that constant efficiency which the intricate duties of the Bureau demand, and which cannot be safely and properly perform ed without strict discipline is enforced. While Gen. Tillson, in retiring will carry with him the best wishes of our citizens for his fut ure welfare, we congratulate them on the appointment of a successor so well qualified iu every respect to assume the onerous position he has now resigned. Trees and “Traxi.” To the Editor of the Press: Old Parson Bradley, of cheerful memory, used sometimes, of a hot Sunday in summer, to call upon his choir to sing “Old Winter,” to cool the heated atmosphere, as he Baid! Equal ly refreshing in these stiff January days, is the reading of agricultural reports in your col umns, with discussious of fruits and trees, by “Traxi” aud others; bringing the green oi sum mer and all pleasant hues and odors to soften the rigid airs and aspects of mid-winter. “Traxi” refers to a discussion in the Board of Agriculture, in which “New York apple trees” received new blessings from gentlemen who had been looking for fruit from them— and found none. I was gratified with Mr. Goodale’s coming to the defence by the dis criminating remark that good trees from New York, like good trees from any other place— were good trees. Here is one secret of success and failure in the cultivation of trees from tht Rochester nurseries. Along with many others in Cumberland county, I bought trees from a Rochester agent, more than ten years ago, and at the same time trees from Mr. Goodalc’s Saco nursery. They were planted in the same orchard, and cultivated alike, aud flourished to gether, Rochester and Saco alike. Some ol my neighbors afterwards complainod of the failure of their New York trees. On compari son of notes, it was found that I had purchas ed better trees—what the agent called “select ed trees,” an “extra lot," and of course at an extra price. Now people must leart, if they wish for good orchards of thrifty trees, thai they must put in good stock—well-rooted and free from disease and deformity. If they care lessly buy sticks for trees, or ignorantly pur chase fair-looking trees not adapted to our cli mate, and the special soil in which they are to be sot, they must expect to fail. i>ut especially, in the second place, must they learn that trees taken from any well cultivated nursery and taught to grow, cannot he set oui upon a hard side-hill and thrive without care and culture. My Rochester trees, as well as those from other nurseries,—which have been growing in soil constantly cultivated with roots or other crops, have grown fast enough, and and have been bearing for several years, boun tifully for their size; while others, loft for con venience in a grass plat with only the cnltiva tion of being digged about and dressed in a careless way, have done next to nothing; un less it be to demonstrate to myself and my neighbors the important lesson, that trees, to flourish well, must be cultivated thoroughly, at least until they have reached a vigorous matu rity. “Traxi” objects that the plowing of orchards must cut the roots. I have no trouble on that score with my young orchard. The roots in a soil plowed every spring, and kept loose dur ing the season, strike deeper and keep out of the way of the plow and cultivator. Or, if sometimes otherwise, these trees have such an abundance of vigorous roots and rootlets, that they do not suffer from the loss of a few. Old trees, long left in the grass-ground, will lose some roots in plowing. But the loss is more than repaid in the vast number of new rootlets which the cultivation of the soil will cause to be formed. j>. P. W. Tar Candiotes.—The last bulletin of the Central Cretan Committee at Athens, received in this country reads as follows: Nothing new has been received from the theatre of war bv reason of the severity of the winter. Detach ments of the Greek forces have been concen trated, and now occupy strong positions at the entrance of the province of Selino. Mustapha Pasha has gone thither. After the last combat at Lakos, the Turks made their way into the villages of Orthoni and Karinoskapida, where they massacred thirty men, women and children who had tak en refuge there. About two thousand women and children had been collected at Soughia to wait for Eu ropean vessels to transport them to Greece. A Turkish Irigate that had entered the harbor fired upon these unfortunate persons for sev eral hours aud compelled them to withdraw to the neighboring Mountains The commander of the Russian ship The Treat Admiral was preparing to depart in or der to take these Cretan families > i The Turkish Govenor notified the eonsul that the oloekade existed in fact. The American consul replied to this note that the blockade not being effeotive could not he regarded This note of the Govenor proves that therovo Ju ion has mado progress, and is being better »uii better organised. Jin. Si'Ukmk in Uostoh,—J’r. bclienck,»u again at bis elegant rooms in Hanover street last week, ou the occasion of bis weekly visit. As usual, there was a great rush ol patients, coming from almost every portion of New England. The Doctor, who is wise andshrewd saw at a glance what could and wliat could not be done in the lew remaining hours of the dav.aud entering the reception rooms, proceed ed'to address those present, giving, as will be seen, some very excellent counsel. The Doc tor deals in common sense, makes plain state* meut*,aml knows what he Bays: He spoke substantially as lollows: Ladies and Gentlemen: 1 see there are more patients here than I can properly attend to, and so i must trv aud manage to get at a number of you at a time.— Many ot you only want a little advice. You nave probably seen me before. Some of you, i suppose, have come a long distance, and are apparently too feeble to wait your turn. Those that wish a thorough examination with the Kespiroiueter 1 will take into my private room i as soon as possible. My charges are live dol* I lars for an examination, lean listen to your ! lungs ami toll pretty well their condition, but 1 it you want to know their exact state—wheth er it i9 Bronchial, Tuberculous, Pleuritic or Pulmonary Consumption, and whether you are curable or not, you must be examined with the Kespiroiueter. Jt is the only proper way of auscultating. Consumption can be cured. Lungs deeply diseased can be healed up if the system is got into a healthy, healing condition. The course pursued by the majority of physi cians is all wrong. They never cure. Their cod liver oil aud whiskey only min the stomach.— I frequently, in riding in the cars, get seated by consumptives. They have all their traps for drinking with them, and as soon as they get into a spell of coughing they take a drink ol wniskey. And so they go on, and many drink a quart a day. Take a well man and let him drink in this way and he will soon lose his appetite. My first step is to cleanse the stomach and liver, and then to create an appe tite. Many of you have a cough, night sweats, creeping chills; and you all want to have them stopped. You think you would be so much better. Now 1 stop nothing. The cough is to relieve the lungs. If your lungs are diseased, the first and only thing to be done is to get the strength; and the only way to do that is to cleanse the stomach and liver. If both lungs are not too badly aflccted, with my Mandrake Pills, Sea Weed Ton e aud Pulmo nic Syrup I cau frequently effect the most won derful cures. A cure frequently requires gen tle purging lor some length of time, to get the stomach and liver to act naturally. As soon as the mucus aud slime commence to move, the appetite begins to come up. The Sea Weed Tonic being an alkali, preserves the food in the stomach until it is digested, preventing it from souring. Now, in almost all cases of lung dis ease, the action of the system is so slow that the food lies in the stomach, and sours. Blood is made of it alter it is spoiled; and this is the way our blood gets thick and bad. Canker, sore throat and catarrh proceed from this sour stomach. Burning out the throat with caustic and gargles affords only temporary relief. It should be treated the same as when the tongue is coated, or sick headache. The cause is the same. My Pulmonic Syrup goes right to blocd when the stomach is kept right witn the Pills and Tonic. Now I wish you to understand that I have no special remedies for chills or night sweats. As soon as the lungs begin to heal these will stop; but it opium, quinine and many other things which are used tn rheek them go into the stomach, they disarrange that important organ so much that digestion is prac tically stopped. This is the very thing I am trying to restore. If I cannot get patients hun gry, and make food to digest easily, I cannot cure them. Getupagcoa appetite, eat good, rich iood, fat meat, gravy—in tact nearly every thing the appetite craves—and the lungs will soon begin to heal. No matter whether the sore is inside oroutside, if the system is healthy it will heal up. You can hardly stop it. It is its nature to heal. You may notice persons that have scroiula, or any old chronic running ulcers; they are all oi a feeble or bilious condi tion, their digestion is poor, and they have not a healthy circulation of blood. Some three or tour years ago a lady,Mrs. Bartholomew, came to my room, 32 Bond street, New York: she had a tumor with two running ulcers on her liver, which had been diseased fourteen years; and they kept growing worse. She was cositive, skin yellow, very stupid and dull, liver and stomach torpid, and no circulation. In three months I drove the disease all out of her. The ulcers healed, and she is now a bright, healthy woman. Now there is one very important mat ter to be attended to in curing consumption, and that is, to prevent taking cold. Your phy sicians tell you to go out every pleasant day. This, in my opinion, is a great mistake.— Persons in health go out and take colds. When a fnng begins to heal the slightest change will inflame it, and the patient is thrown back. When I can persuade patients to keep to their rooms, I am almost sure of suc cess. When they are able they can exercise ahouttbe rooms to get the blood in circulation. 1 he directions which accompany my medicines are so explicit that any one can take them without ever seeing me. There is not a day but what I hear oi some that have been cured that 1 never saw. Take the medicines and guard against colds. If the lungs are not too lar gone, the stomach will soon cleanse itself, and the appetite will come. Eat plenty of good food, and nature will heal the lungs. 'As I said before, do not depend on something to ease the cough, to stop night sweats and creeping chills, for these are only temporary. Some persons may think, when I speak of taking cold, that my medicines may open the pores and make theni more liable; but it is precisely the reverse of this, for when the stomach is cleansed, per sons are not so apt to take cold as when the system is locked up. Frequently when people take a cold, if they would swallow auoseof Mandrake Pills, it would work the difficulty ofl; but instead of this they swallow something to check it, which drives it hack to the lungs leaving the seeds for tubercles to be developed by the next slight cold into inflammation of the lungs. 1 have talked much longer than I in tended to, but when I start I get so anxious to convinco people how ea,y it is to keep well and teel fit ior busiuess, that I do not know when to stop. When the stomach is out of order you are sick all over, and if you keep that right C cannot help but be healthy and fleshy.— kat me. Once I was in i he last stage of consumption, as tall as I am now, an<l 1 weigh cd less than one hundred pounds. My hither, mother, brothers and sister all died of con sumption—a family complaint—and yet here 1 am, weighing two hundred and thirt y pounds, cured by the same medicines I offer to you. I (fo not wish to be understood that iny medi cines cure all. A good many die that take them. They commence too late, and their lungs are too far gone. Their stomach and liv er are so much congested, and, I am sorry to say, frequently by the use oi Bourliou whis key, to get them into action. The Mandrake Pills contain no calomel or mercury; they are perfectly harmless, and carry ofl‘ the bile better ilian Blue Bills or any other purgative ever concocted. Itemember these suggestions, my tr!?1u1tl8> au<l ^ know if you act upon them you I will be the better lor it. Prussia and the German War.—The first lecture of the course conducted by the Army and Navy Union, will be delivered this even ing, at Mechanics’ Hall, by Rev. \V. L. Gage, of Brcoklyn, who has for some time past sup plied the pulpit of State Street Church in this city. Mr. Gage was in Germany last summer, in Berlin a part of the time, an interested and careful observer of tlio events of the wonderful campaign which transfer) ed the hegemony of the German confederation from Austria to Prus sia. We are informed that he enjoyed some special advantages for the study of this notable passage in contemporary history, through the kindness of the American Minister, and the attaches of the legation at Berlin. At any rate the narrative will he that of an intelligent looker-on, who has enjoyed unusual facilities for obtaining information about a very inter esting matter. The hall is small, and persons who arc especially desirous of good seats must go early. Burning of Steamer Gen. Shepley.—We have before brief!} noticed the burning of this steamer. The following are the particulars: She was burned at the plantation of Colonel Fly, Ossabaw Island, Sunday night, 27th uit., at 12 o clock; liad gone to the above plantation for a freight of cotton and mules, being the produce of the stock of the plantation of Col. 1‘ ly, the laborers upon which had refused eith er to contract for the present year or leave the plantation, and who had previously threatened to burn any boat sent by the authorities to re move them. As above stated the boat was burned at midnight, while lying off the planta tion, with Col. Fly, his wile,the captain and officers on board, all ot them narrowly escaped with their lives. The vessel was entirely con sumed. She was a stern-wheel steamer, built here, was two years old, and in excellent order and condition, her machinery being valued at $10,000, and the vessel, including machinery, $25 000. She was owned by Messrs. Ross '& Sturdivant, and partially insured in Northern offices. Death of a Bromisino Poft.—Tire Boston papers of yesterday contain the intelligence of the death of Forceythe Willson, the poet. He dred after a short illness, on Saturday, at Al fred Centre, in the State of New York. “The Old Sergeant’’and “In State" were the best known of Mr. Willson’s pieces, and gave prom ise of something still better in the future He had not yet reached the prime of life, we be lieve, although we arc not well informed as to his history.

Tuesday.—Timothy and Julia O’Brien, for drunk enness and disturbance, paid fines of $3 each and the costs. Timothy Cochran and James Donohue, who have Just got out of jail, by paying a fine for stealing, were brought up for larceny of a keg of lard from the store o! H. H. Hatch. They pleaded guilty and were sen tenced to the Reform School during their minority. The case of Edward Walsh, Jr., charged with lar ceny of the Bailey & Noyes check for $550, occupied the Court all day. Messrs. Shepley & Strout appear ed for State, and Mr. W. W. Thomas, Jr., for the de fence. The evidence was all putin and Court ad journed to 9 o’clock Wednesday morning, when the arguments will come off. “On the Square.” Mb Editob :—Allow one who formerly twas a resident of your city, and is at present a con stant reader of the papers published there, to say a word or two in reference to the new Square to be laid out between Pearl and Franklin and Congress and Federal streets.— Judging from several articles which have ap peared in print, and from one in particular published in the Argus of the 31st ult., and signed “Elder Berry,” I should say that the great aim was to ridicule every attempt put forth to improve the city since the Are. Why not discuss the queston in regard to a name for the Square just as you would any other and let people both at home and abroad see that self respect is not utterly extinct? If the course already commenced shall be persisted in, a new instance will be afforded in verifica tion of the old proverb, that those who do not respect themselves can presume upon no re spect from others. But to the name. Plienix was appropriate and significant, and as the land is in the oldest part of the city can hardly be improved. Phe nix Square ! how euphoneous and fitting! If it bo named from some individual, mistakes will arise as to the design and origin; and you may expect some miserable flunkey will busy himself with it to the disgust of every decent citizen. There was enough of this in the at tempt to change the name of Congress and Middle streets. If old fogies must rule, call Congress, Back street; India, King street; and Exchange, Fish street; and then do as old Mr. Randall did, who would heed no alarm of fire until the First Parish bell rung, deeming all others false. Perhaps you will say I am interfering. It may be proper to add however, that I passed the best portion of my life in Portland and have felt a deep interest in its welfare ever since my removal. D. Sudden Death.—Capt. Stephen Ward, of Kenuebunk, was in this city yesterday, trans acting business. In the afternoon he went to the depot to take the train for home. While waiting there for the cars, he was observed to stagger, and was caught in the arms of some one before falling to the floor. He gasped a few times and in a minute or two expired. It is supposed he was affected with disease of the heart. His remains were taken out toKeune bunk in the train in which he expected to be one of the passengers. Capt. Ward was one of the largest ship builders in the State, and was about 55 years of age. Obgan Concebt.—Some of the lovers of good music were highly gratified yesterday af terday afternoon in listening to an impromptu concert on the sweet toned organ of the First Parish. Dr. Walter, organist of Trinity Chap el, New York, and Prot Kotzschmar, organist of the First Parish, were the performers. The music was splendid. Dr. Walters proved him self to be an eminent and.skillful player. But, to our taste, there was more expression in Kotzschmar’a playing, and, we think, most of those present agree in our opinion. It might be, because Kotzschmar was much better ac quainted with the instrument than was Dr. Walter. Pebsevebance Thbough Difficulties.— Tile train fr om Augusta for this city yesterday, on the Portland & Kennebec Railroad, started with two engines and a snow plow in the rear of the train. Below Gardiner the plow got off the track, detaining the train some time. In coming round the sharp curve above Richmond one of the large drivers on one of the engines, from some inexplicable cause, broke or burst, smashing it into hundreds of pieces. No body was injured, but the train was about one hour and a half behind time in leaving Richmond. It gained nearly an hour of this fiom Rich mond to Portland, and arrived here in season to make the connection with the Boston train. A New Clock* Mr. Editor :—Permit me, through your pa per, to call the attention of the School Commit tee and of the City Government, to consider the propriety of placing a good clock upon the tower of the new school house now being erected near the corner of India and Congress streets. The place is a very conspicuous one, and the necessity almost indispensibie to the lower end of the city. Nortii Ender. • ___ _ The Leeds & Farmington E. E. Company Again.—On seeing your item yesterday morn ing concerning that company, a railroad man wishes me to state that, as he believes, this is the first instance on record where those inter ested in a third railroad mortgage have volun. tarily assessed themselves and paid off two prior mortgages, paying all the bonds in full, and that without any litigation or coercion. J. C. Woodman, Treasurer. Y. M. C. A. Lectures.—The eighth lecture of the course before the Young Men’s Chris tian Association, will be given this evening, at the Chestnut Street Church, by Eev. Mr. Eidg way, of New York. The subject chosen is the “ Character and Influence of William Coli den,” which under the treatment of this pop lar speaker, can hardly fail to prove extremely interesting. Una Boat Club.—At the annual meeting Monday evening, the club organized for the current year by the choice of the folio wing offi cers: Capt. A. P. Harris, President; George Barstow, Vice President; A. C. Chase, Secre tary; Bobcrtston Williams, Treasurer. The fiuancial and numerical conditions of the Club are excellent.

The Chech Cask.—The examination in the ; ;ase of Edward Walsh, Jr., who is charged , with the larceny of the check for $560, that < Messrs. Bailey & Noyes gave Mr. Theodore ^ Johnson, and which the latter lost as stated in the Press of Monday, came off yesterday in < the Municipal Court The prosecutiou was conducted by A. A. Strout, Esq., of the firm of Messrs. Shepley & Strout, and W. W. Thomas, i Jr., Esq., appeared for the respondent. 1 Mr. Johnson testified as to receiving tho , check on the 31st of January and put it in his wallet; saw it at 0 o’clock that evening; missed it at half past 7 o,clock when he got home; never sold or disposed of the check. Mr. Walsh was placed on the stand and un derwent a long examination. 11c said he had closed his store on Thursday night, hut after ward went hack to put on his patent leather boots when a stranger came in and, alter look ing at some boots, purchased two pair for which he engaged to pay $10. This stranger handed him the check for $550 and he asked him if it was good. He said ho guessed it was.— Walsh then asked him where he got it. But | the stranger did not tell him, but said if the check was not good he did not want him to ! take it. Walsh then told him he would take it and gave him the balance over the price of the hoots, but made a mistake and gave him $510; being five dollars too much. The cross examination by Mr. Strout was very’searehing and elicited the various places in which Mr. Walsh was after he closed his store the first time, and that it was about half past nine when he returned to the store and sold the boots. He did not go to Bailey & Noyes to see if the check was good before tak ing it to the Bank. Evidence was then introduced on the part of tho State to show that Walsh’s store was not reopened that night after it was closed at 7 1-2 o’clock. The testimony came from three or four policemen who are stationed on the beat in which is the store of Walsh. At 5 o’clock the evidence was all out and, at the suggestion of counsel for the accused, the Court adjourned to 9 o’clock, Wednesday morning, when the arguments will take place. Walsh was required to recognize, with sure ties, in the sum of $1,000 for jp appearance. THE STATE. —Tho Lewiston Advertiser says there is nothing new concerning the West Auburn tragedy. Another party was arrested on Sat urday on suspicion of being concerned in tho murder, but nothing has yet been shown against him to justify his further detention and he will bo discharged. Freitche is still held. Tho Selectmen of Auburn have offered a reward of one thousand dollars for the ap prehension of the murderer. —The dwelling house of Mr. Henry Stewart of North Farmington, with nearly the entire contents, was destroyed by fire, on the evening of Wednesday, the 30th ultimo.

As yet there has been but little improvement in trade and the volume of business is rather limited. The unsettled state of the currency, tariff and inter nal revenue laws, which are now before Congress, prevents any extended operations in commercial cir cles. The consumptive demand is as large as usual, but, outside of that there is scarcely anything doing. There is, evidently, in the New York and Boston markets an increased demand tor money. Large sums have been paid to take goods out of bonds witliin a few weeks past, and especially since the action of the IT. S. Sena'c upon the tariff bill whereby the duties on many articles have been largely increased. But the action of the House upon this bill is not so certain, and in consequence of the short time remaining for action by tho present Con gress the bill may be lost. Should the bill pass the House, a veto from the President is anticipated, in which case, it is said, a two-thirds vote for Its passage cannot be obtained in the House. A few days will determine this important matter.
