Various amendments were proposed and act ed on, when an executive session was held, after which the Senate took a recess. EVENING SESSION. The consideration of the river and harbor ap propriation hill was resumed.

At 11 o’clock, without taking actiou on the bill, the Senate adjourned. HOUSE. The States were called for hills and joint res olutions, lor reference only. A number of bills and resolutions were pre sented and refe rred. Mr. Hill offered a preamble and resolution in reference to Mr. Wentworth's select com mittee of enquiry into alleged corrupt bargains with the President, directing such committee to report after the reading of the journal to morrow any evidence in its possession; and also requesting Mr. Wentworth to present the newspaper paragraph on which his resolution was based. Mr. Stevens, characterizing the resolution as a most extraordinary one, moved to lay it on tlie table. Rejected 24 to 63. The resolu tion was adopted. Mr. Niblack offered a resolution instructing the Committtee on the District of Columbia to report a bill conferring elective franchise with in the District to foreigners who hare declared their intention of becoming citizens, {and are otherwise qualified. Mr. Stevens moved to table it, but the House refused—47 to 84. Mr. Niblack moved the previous question, hut was not sustained, aud debate arising, it went over under the rules. Mr. Cullum offered resolutions directing the Judiciary Committee to report a bill making eight hours a legal day’s work for all Govern ment employees. Mr. Wilson, of Iowa, Chairman of the Com mittee, said the resolution was unnecessary, as he had beeu already instructed to report such a bill, but had withheld it because it could not be considered by the House in its present condi tion of business. Mr. Cullum withdrew the resolution. Mr. Taylor, of Tenn., offered a resolution de claring that the surviving soldiers aud sailors of the war of 1812 ought to be placed on the pension rolls by this Congress. Adopted. Mr. Darling, from the select committee on internal revenue frauds, made a report, and Mr. Trimble got leave to present the views of the minority. Ordered to be printed. Mr. Morrill, Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, made a statement in refer ence to busines of tlie House, and proposed that the Committee of the Whole lie discharg ed from the further consideration of the tariff bill, and that the House concur in the amend ments of the Senate with amendments thereto reported by tlie Committee ou Ways and Means, as subsequently modified, and that then the subject shall bo referred to the con lerence committee. The gentlemen would see that when the repoTt of such conference com mittee was received, it could bo voted down if not satisfactory. He submitted rcolutions to that effect. Mr. Pike suggested that it would be more ac ceptable to take the House bill of last session, and let the committee of conference have both bills before it as a basis of agreement. Mr. Morrill expressed the conviction that the hill as proposed to be amended by the Commit tee on Ways and Means, was a more perfect bill than the House bill. Mr. Morrill modified his resolution so as to read “ that the rules be suspended so that the Committee of the Whole be discharged from further consineration of the tariff bill, that the House non-coucur in the Senate amendments, and that the House ask a committee of conference.” Mr. Morrill notified the House that unless his proposition was agreed to, he should feel compelled to ask the House to sit in continuous session until the tariff bill was disposed of. After further debate the House refused to suspend the rules ou Mr. Morrill’s motion —84 to 86. The House then went into Committee of the Whole on the tax bill. Various amendments were adopted, one re pealing section 114 of the act of the 30th of June, 1864, which puts advertisements on the freelist; that in cases of seizures for alleged frauds a bond may be given for double tho amount, and the parties be permitted to go on with their business; requiring inspectors ot distilleries to give $5,060 bonds. At a quarter to three o’clock the committee rose anil reported the hill to the House. Mr. Morrill in receiving the amendments op posed the repeal oi the cotton tax, saying it waft not an oppressive tax, and he had no doubt that the Northern States would be in favor of its continuance. Mr. Iiollins, the Commission er of Internal Reveuue, had submitted a table showing that the amount of tax collected in the rebel States for 1866 from cotton, was $15, 000,000, and from all other sources only $4,500, 000, which is $1,200,000 less than was paid by the small State of Rhode Island. This amount, distributed through ten States, hardly pays the expenses of collection, and it would 1m* as well to exempt these States from the operation of the internal revenue law. The amendment striking out the tax ou cot ton was rejected. Mr. Stevens, from the conference committee on the consular and diplomatic appropriation bill, made a report, which was agreed to. The proviso in regard to the mission to Por tugal is, that no money .shall he paid to the present Minister out of any i'unds whatever; and that this provision shall remain in force until repealed by Congress. Mr. Spaulding, from tlie coulerence commit tee on the military academy bill, made a re port, which was agreed to. The section in reference to eadets from rebel States reads that “ No money shall be paid for the pay or subsistence ol such cadets after the 1st of Jarmrry, 1867, until their State shall be restored to its orig.nal relations to the Union. The House here took a recess until evening. EVENING SESSION.

LETTER NO. XXXI. As I have In my proceeding letters so fully describ ed the symptoms and pathology of Catarrh, and the various diseases of the air passages, and pointed out their important relation to consumption, and other diseases of tko chest. 1 shall in the present instance, content myself by furnishing the following strong proofs jf their curability. To show the permanency of cures effected by In halation,! will here refer to ]»ersonft now living in the enjoyment of good health, whose cases were pro nounced hopeless and incurable some years since, and were cured by Dr. Morse’s Remedies, mostly through the medium of Inhalation. Hundreds of other similar cases might be mentioned. CONSUMPTION. Mrs. Sophia A. Fittz, formerly of Bath, now a res ident of Oak Hill, Brunswick, of this State, was re duced to a very low stato by sickness in 1862. It was soon manifest that her lungs were tailoring under tu berculous ulceration, which was fast wasting her life away. Her physician thought the structure of her left lung was almost destroyed. Her case was considered hopeless and incurable by ail of her friends and phy sician. She was placed under the care of Dr. Morse of Portland, by whom a perfect euro was effected, mostly through the medium of Inhalation. Mrs. F. has enjoyed bettor health since than ever before. ASTHMA. Mrs. Dorcas Lawrence of Falmouth, this State, was in a feeble state of health for a long time, caused by As) lima, or Phthisic, difficulty of breath ing, and other alarming symptoms, which caused much Buffering, which rendered her caso hopeless in the minds of her friends. She was restored to a per fect state of health by the use of Dr. Morse’s Reme dies, mostly through the medium of Inhalation. PNEIMONIA’A. Mrs. Samuel Hill of West Buxton, in tins State, was severely troubled with Pneumonica, a disease affecting the lungs, their membrane or motive power, characterized l>y irregular, impeded or pain lb i re spiration. Alter long suffering, a council oi three physicians was culled. Alter consultation, they gave no en couragement of a cure. She was placed under the care of Dr. Morse of Portland, and in a tew months restored to perfect health, mostly through the medi um of Inhalation. HEMORRHAGE. Rev. William Leavitt, brother of Mrs. Hill, having heard of his sister’s recovery, applied to Dr. Morse. His disease was Hemorrhage of the Lnngs, which caused groat debility. He was obliged to relinquish preaching, and entertained doubts about ever being able to resume bis vocation. Ho placed himself un der tlic caro of Dr. Morse, and in a few months was restored to health through the medium of Inhala tion, and is at present preaching to the people of West Buxion. HEMORRHAGE. MI. Isaac L. llarnos, of Brunswick, of this State, was troubled willi Hemorrhage of the Lungs, and oth erwise affected, in 1862, had lost over thirty pounds of flesh, was troubled with palpitation of the heart, bled one pint a day for six days in succession, reduced very weak. Mr. Barnes was fully restored to health by tbo use of Dr, Morse’s Inhaling Remedies, still enjoys good health. HEMORRHAGE. Rev. Horace Norton, of Meadville, Pa., alter being reduced to a very low state of health, by Hemorrhage from the Lungs, was so feeble that he could not walk five rods without assistance. Came to Portland, placed himself under the care of Dr. Morse. He grad ually improved until he was fully restored to health. Hia weight Increased (lom 121 poumfsto 165 pounds. ANTHMA. Mr. James A. Page, ot Bloomfield, fafrorwards re moved to A roostook) was severely troubled with Asth ma from a child, olfen so badly that lie could not per form any labor for months together. It was a com mon thing for him to be obliged to sit up all night, with much difficulty of breathing. Mr. Page was radically cured through ilie medium of Inhalation, obtained of Dr. Morse. CATARRH, BRONCHITIS, Ac. Mr. Isaac Robinson, of East Yaasalltoro’, was se verely troubled will) pulmonary disease for live yeare, with Chronic Catarrh, Bronchitis, severe hoarseness; could not speak above a whisper for several months, during which time he was confined to his room; a large abscess termed on one lung, which broke and was discharged i hrough the tubes out of the mouth. His physiciau thought his ease hopeless. He was placed uuder the care of Dr. Morse, and gradually improved by the use of the Inhaling Remedies, uul il he was fully restored to health. CHRONIC CATARRH. Mr.Silas W. Berry, ol Waterville, this State, was troubled with Chronic Catarrh and pulmonary dis ease, which was the cause of frequent spells of As phyxia, or suspended animation. He had lost five sisters who died with consumption, and was much a'armed al>..ut himself. Mr. Berry was fully restored to health by the use of Dr. Morse’s Inhaling Reme dies. AN UirORTANT Cl HE. Mrs. Caroline Atkinson, of Cornish, of this State, a widow whose husband gave Ills life to his country in our recent civil war, and daughter of Mr. Samuel Knight, ot the same town, was seriously attacked by a disease of the Lungs. She had fastened upjther dangerous symptoms, by which she was prostrated very low, and unable to no removed for several days, and was given up to cite. Other orgaus were serious ly affected, and their natural secretions suppressed. In this condition she placed herBelf under the care of Dr. Morse. Through the medium of his Inhaling Remedies she was fully restored to health, and is now a hale ami hearty woman. Dr. Mor.-e lias the names of more Ilian two thou sand persons oil his books, who have been cured ot Catarrh in its various forms, uiul It is sate to say that all the above named cases were caused by Catarrh, or proceeded trout that complaint. Persons at a distance can be treated by letter.
