Commander Cooper, of the United States steamer Winooski, reports to the Navy Depart ment under date of Feb. 2, his arrival at San tiago De Cuba, from a cruise in the vicinity of Cape Antonia, Bay ot Curientes and Isle of Pine^ touching at the ports of Cienfuegos aud j.ne touowing ih a synopsis of Mr. Sherman’s substitute for Mr. Stevens’ billl as it passed the Senate: The preamble declares that no legal State government, or adequate protection lor “* «* property now exists in the rebel States of Virginia, North Carolina. South Carolina. Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Flor ida iexas and Arkansas, and it is necessary that peace and good order should be enforced until lov al and Republican State governments can be legally established. The first section divides the States named into five military dis tricts, as in the original bill; the second section makes it the duty ot the President to assign the command of each district to an officer of the army not below the rank of Brigadier Gen eral, and to detail a sufficient military force to enforce his authority in the district, 'etc. The third section makes it the duty of such officer to protect all persons in their rights of person and property, to suppress insurrection, disor der and violence, and to punish or cause to he punished all disturbers of the public peace and criminals. He may allow local civil tribunals to try and punish offenders, or may organize military commissions dr tribunals for that pur pose. All interference under States authority is declared to be null and void. The fourth sectiou provides that all persons arrested shall lie tried without uuuecessary delay; no cruel and unnecessary punishment shall lie indicted, and no sentence affecting life or liberty shall be executed until approved by the commander of the district. The tilth section provides that when the people of any one of the late rebel States shall have formed a constitution and government in conformity with the Constitu tion of the United States in all respects, fram ed by a convention of delegates elected by the male citizens of said State 21 years of age and upward, of whatever race or color or previous condition, who have been resident in said State for one year previous to the day of such elec tion,except such as may be disfranchised for participation in the rebellion or fur felony as common law, and when such Gonstitutiun shall provide that the elective franchise shall be en joyed by all Buch persons as have the qualifica tions herein stated for electors of delegates, and when such Constitution shall be ratified by a majority of the persons voting on the question of ratification wno are qualified as electors ot the delegates; and wheu such Constitution shall liave been submitted to Congress for ex amination and approval, and Congress shall have approved the same; and when said State, by a vote of its Legislature elected under such Constitution, shall have adopted the amend ment to the Constitution ot the United States proposed hffcthe Thirty-Ninth Congress, and known as article 14, and when said article shall have become part of the Constitution of the United States, said State shall lie declared entitled to representation in Congress, and Senators and Representatives shall be admit ted therefrom on their taking the oath pre scribed by law, and then and thereafter the preceding sections ot this act shall be in opera tion in said State. To this is added the addi tional section proposed by Mr. Doolittle. The origin of Mr. Sherman’s substitute for the House military government bill was as fol lows: Wheu the Senate adjourned after Fri day night’s session, with Mr. Blaine’s amend ment pending, the Republican Senators called a caucus to meet at 11 o’clock on Saturday morning, to agree on a common basis, if possi Bilile. At this caucus the whole subject was referred to a committee of seven Senators, viz., Messrs. Hise, Fessenden, Trumbull, Sumner, Howard, Sherman, Harris and Frelinghuysen. The committee were at work most of Saturday afternoon, and finally agreed upon the bill which Mr. Sherman offered as a substitute at the Saturday evening session, and which was adopted after a whole night’s discussion. The last section substitutes simply Mr. Blaine’s amendment, somewhat changed in phraseology, but covering just the same points. From pres ent indications there will be serious resistance in the House to-morrow to the passage of the military construction bill as amended by the Senate. EUROPE. NEWS BY THE CABLE.
