A terrible tragedy occurred last night at New Market, N. ,J. During the evening two strang ers called at the residence of Dr. Corville and inquired if he was at home. The servant girl replied that he was not. Later they return ed and awoke Mrs. Corville, who weut to the door. As soon as the door was opened they seized her by the throat and tried to stifle her screams. The servant girl hearing the noise seized an infant and fled through the rear door to the next house, which was occupied by a Methodist clergyman, and aroused him. Seve ral neighbors were at once summoned. On reaching the place the house was discovered to bo on fire by the minister, and on opening th e door of an inner apartment, be was nearly stifled by the dense smoke. Placing himself on the floor to avoid suffocation, his hand came iu contact with the body of Mrs. Corville, which was apparently covered with blood. The corpse was taken from the room, when it was found that she had been strangled, and also stabbed in the breast. Facts have come fo light which cast suspicion on the servant girl as the mur derer. On the neck of Mrs. Corville were lound teeth marks which correspond w ith the teeth ot the girl. Other evidence also seems to point to her as the murderess. FroM C'alifnruin. San Francisco, Feb. 26.

The first vole taken by yeas and nays was on the r^uo,nK distillery- licences from 5s»00 to $100. 1 he vote was 67 to 78, so the li cence 18 to l>o $500. The next vote taken was on making gas companies pay the tax instead j * ar-?in£ it to their customers after the dOtli ! Al»,nl next.

Mr. Counts* moved to strikeout the word department and insert bureau. Mr. Trumbull spoke in favor of the bill. It was better to use the word department because heads of departments could appoint, subordi nate officers, and it was important that the Commissioner of Education should appoint his own subordinates. Mr. Simmer was in favor of the bill. H e cared not whether it was called a bureau or de partment. Suffrage in the rel»el States would bo a barren scepter without education. Ponding consideration of the subject the morning hour expired. Mr. Fessenden moved to take up the army appropriation bill. Mr. Chandler moved to take up the Niagara ship eanal bill. After debate Mr. Fessenden’s motion was carried—24 to 18.

Mr- (.1 rimes said he had opposed Mr. ('hand ler’s bill, but would give his support to such a measure as Mr. Chandler had just promised to iu trod uce.

Mr. Wentworth, in accordance with the re solution of the House yesterday, made a report stating the progress of the examination insti tuted into the charges as to corrupt bargains between members and the President. It ap pears that the whole story was derived from observations made by reporters in the gallery and con jectional inferences drawn therefrom Then* was also some story about two persons who went back and forth between the Piesi dent and certain conservative members of Congress. The upshot was that there was not the least knowledge obtained by the commit tee about the reported proposition of reconcili ation between the President and the ineml>ers, nor had the committee any reliable expectatiod ot obtaining such knowledge. The committee, asked to be discharged from any further consi deration of the subject. Mr. Gloflsbienner of Pennsylvania lead a statement which caused much amusement. It declared that the committee spared no pains to find ugly facts, hut the witnesses could not | be brought up to the mark, seeing or sus I pecting anything hut what was honorable and patriotic in those whose proceedings they de tailed. The impeachment of the President had not been discussed or mentioned in any shape or form. He suggested that the modest gen tleman named Cowan, now a guest of the Mar shal of the city, might he induced to come out and furnish all information that might be de sired. The committee was discharged. On motion of Mr. Delano, the Senate’s amendments to the House’s resolution provi ding for the payment of claims of persons resi ding in the rebel States not known to have been loyal during the rebellion was taken from the Speaker’s table and acted on.

EVENING SESSION. w< nt into Committee of the \\ hole on the tariff hill and the residing of the senate amendments was concluded at twenty minutes past eight. Mi . Morrill presented an amendment to tbe amendments ol the Senate in the nature ot a substitute for the whole bill. He explained that the substitute was in the main tile same as reported from tbe Committee on Ways aud Means. There are a few alterations, not more than 12 or 15, reducing the rates slightly. He said that he would consider any decisive votes that might be given in the course of consider ing the bill on the nature of instructions and would modify his substitute accordingly. In other words the Senate amend nients would re main under consideration and the substitute be pending as an amendment to it. The committee rose, in order that Mr. Mor rill might move in the House to terminate the general debate, which motion be submitted.

WASHINGTON. (JES, HAZES OS AFFAIRS IS UTAH. ' Annual Report of the Com missioner of Agriculture. FICEEUtlE.VM AFFAIRS IN TEXAS. Mont lily jstatiTVHTit of tbe Public Debt. Washington, Feb. 26. Gen. Hazen lias addressed a letter to repre sentative Bid well, who has requested reports of his observations upon affairs in Utah, while there in October last. He thinks it important that the Government should strengthen its au thority in that territory, increase its friendly relations with that people, and elevate their intelligence until they come to find that they nre part of the United States, and that we are their friends. Harsh measures will only cou solidate them. The lands of the territory are still held by the Government, and if it is the intention to give a title to the Mormon settlers on the same grounds as to other emigrants, and he does not seo how it can do less, a land of fioo should be opened and a commissioner ap pointed to settle claims. The longer this is ne- ^ glee ten the more trouble can be expected in reconciling claims. The matter for the annual report of the Com missioner of Agriculture for 1866, was present- i eu to Congress to-day, and referied to the Com mittee on Printing. It embraces, in addition j to the work of the Department, papers from ! some of the best agricultural writers in the i country, including, Judge French, S. Edwards Todd, H. A. Willard, B. Perley Poore, and William Clough, from the editorial ranks, and others well known in agricultural literature. Letters received at the headquarters of the Froedmen’s Bureau, from Gen. Griffin, Assist ant. Commissioner for Texas, state that instead of withdrawing virtually from all control over the treedmen’s interests, etc., as has been stat- i ed, it is his purpose to exercise all the powers given him by existing orders for the protection of the freedmen. An official communication shows that the aggregate amount of $539,000 has been expend ed for subsistence stores issued to destitute ref ugees and freedmen,or persons not belonging to the army, for the six months ending Decem ber last, .me mommy staremcnt ot tue public debt will be published on or about the 5th of March. It will not show any very material difference from the last statement. The receipts from customs will appear to have been quite heavy and those from internal revenue sources unu sually small, less than the former, this being the first instance of the kind. It will exhibit a heavy increase in the gold balance, auiount in* several millions, from wliich the interest on the ten-forties on the lirst. proximo will be paid. A large number of gentlemen, representing the newspapers of all sections of the country, without distinction of party, met in one of the committee rooms of the Capitol to-nigbj, and organized a correspondents* press club.
