These resolves passed both branches unanimously. CoDfere.es have been appointed on the hill an act in aid of the European & North Amer ican Railroad. Messrs. Otis, Berry, and Lap ham on the part ot the House. In the Senate there is a large majority in favor of aiding this road. The House has a majority the other way. Thero has been considerable excite ment on this question aud probably the rail road will have to wait for the present, and the whole question will be left as the Legislature found it. The Legislature adjourned last eve ning at a late hour. HOUSE. Resolves in favor of a temporary loan, also in favor of Farmington Normal School, passed finally. Resolve authorizing the Land Agent to ob tain certain records from the archives of Mas sachusetts, under a suspension of the rules, passed to be engrossed.

An act to aid in the construction of railroads and exempt the shares and bonds issued in aid therefor from taxation for a term of years, was indefinitely postponed; the Senate concur ring therein. Resolve in favor of compiling and publish ing the school laws, was passed to be engross ed. The Senate concurred. The conferees on the part of the Senate and House had a uieetiug and were unable to agree upon any proposition in aid of the Europeau & North American Railroad and the commit tee reported to each branch the result ot the conference. The Senate voted “to adhere,” without de bate. In the House the question was discuss ed by Messrs. Shepley, Otis, Berry and others, and after a spirited and lengthy discussion the report of the committee was accepted. A mo tion “to insist” was voted down— 44 yeas, 60 nays. If the motion “to insist” had beeu car ried it might have necessitated another con ference. The vote “to adhere” was then concurred in by about the same vote. A motion was then made by the opponents of the measure to re consider the last vote, with the expectation of voting it down, in order that no more attempts should be made to resuscitate the question.— Motions to adjourn were made and voted down and finally, with considerable excitement, the question to reconsider was taken with the fol lowing result: yeas 27, nays 51. So the meas ure is disposed of. The Legislature has passed 30G private and special acts, and lOd resolves—more than a hundred over the business done last year. The Legislature has been diligent, and adjourned this evening at 10 o'clock. WASHINGTON 00RRESP0NDEN0E. VACILLATION OF THE PRESIDENT. A Clean Sweep of tbe Cabluet. Senator Wade Nominated for Pres ident of the Senate. New York, March 1. A gentleman who has been a member of two Cabinets and who served as a General in the rebel army, now in Washington, says the Pres ident at first intended to sigu the reconstruc tion bill, but afterwards changed his mind and thought ho would pocket it, in aceordauoe with the advice of the elder Blair. After ward he said he would veto it, and the mes sage would be a strong legal document. This gentleman is of opinion that Mr. Johnson is to tally iucapahle of filling the position he occu pies, as he is too much under the control of bis Cabinet and oue or two outside rings, and ho firmly believes the President would have sign ed the hill had it not betn for the influence of Mr. Howard and Mr. McCulloch. A special Washington dispatch says there was a rumor in Washington last night that the President contemplates a clean sweep of his Cabinet, with but une exception. It is said that Judge Black is to become Secretary of State. The one exception is Judge Stan berry, Attorney General. The Post’s special says the Senate Finance Committee have agreed to report a bill fixing the tariff on wool and woolen goods at the same rate as in the House bill. Senator Wade has been nominated by the Republican caucus, as President of the Senate. The Democrats will fillibuster against the tenure of office and army appropriation bills, if certain obnoxious sections are not stricken out. The Commercial’s special says the confer ence committee have remodelled the bank rupt bill and it will become a law. The friends of the tariff will endeavor to get a joint resolution passed, increasing the duties on several articles. The veto will be sent in as soon as the Cabi net now in session on it, adjourns.

The Superior Criminal Court in session at East Cambridge was the scene of a tragedy this afternoon, that is seldom witnessed in this part of the country. A man named William H. Orne, who was convicted last fall, with another man who is now serving out a life sen tence in the State Prison for settling fire to a I'obhc building in Charlestown, and who liad obtained a new trial, had just been convicted a second time by the jury, was about to be sentenced, by Judge Bussel, when his counsel went to him to the dock, and spoke a few words to him, after which Orne declared his innocence of the crime of which he had been Convicted, and just as he had made the asser tion the second time, he unbuttoned his vest and drawing an open jack knife from liis pocket, stablied himself three times, before the weapon could be wrested from him. As soon as an examination could be made, it was found that two of the wounds had penetrated the lungs, and the other one had nearly touched the heart, the intention of tlie man having been evidently to destroy life. He was at once conveyed to tho jail adjoining the Court House, hut there is scarcely a possibility of his Jiving. He has been convicted twice before for crime. Nominations ol Rot. Chamberluiii.

There is nothing of special interest to record in the Boot and Shoe market tor the week, beyond that al ready noticed since the opening of the Spring trade.— Trade continues moderately active considering the general depression of business. In prices there has been no change; the general belief is that they have touched the lowest point for the season. The wifh nolding of active ope ratio ns among the manufactur ers, which has now become quite general, and which is still farther prom pied by fbe aspect of the Leather market of late, and the gradual reduction 0. the stock on hand, inclines many to the belief that an ad vance of prices will occur in the course ot the next two weeks; this, however, is doubtful, especially if tho downward tendency ot materials continues.— Western buyers, although they have not in all cases taken the usual quantity of goods, speak encourag ingly of business in their section, and will no doubt give further orders to complete assortments.—[Shoe aud Leather Reporter.

LETTER NO. XXXI. As riiave in my proceeding letters so ftilly describ ed the symptoms and pathology of Catarrh, and the vai ions diseases of the air passages, and pointed out their important relation to consumption, and other diseases of the chest. I shall in the present instance, content myself by furnishing the following strong proofs 3f their curability. To show the permanency of ernes effected by In halation, I will here refer to persons 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 oi other similar cases might he 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 state by sickness In 1862. It was soon manliest that her lungs were laboring 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 ot Portland, by whom a porfect cure was effected, mostly through the medium of Inhalation. Mrs. F. has enjoyed better health since than ever before. ASTHMA. Mrs. Dorcas Lawrence of Falmouth, tills State, was in a feeble state of health for a long time, caused by Asthma, or Phthisic, diliiculty of breath ing, and other alarming symptoms, which caused much suffering, which rendered her case hox>cless 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. PNEUMONIC A. Mrs. Samuel Hill of West Buxton, in this State, was severely troubled with Pneumonica, a disease affecting the lungs, their membrane or motive power, characterized by irregular, impeded or painful re spiration. After long suffering, a council of tliree physicians was called. After consultation, they gave no en couragement of a cure. She was placed under the care oi Dr. MorstTof Portland, and in a lew months restored to perfect health, mostly through the medi um of Inhalation. HE9IOB1IHABE. ltcv. William Loavitt, brother of Mrs. Hill, having heard of his sister’s recovery, applied to Dr. Morse. His disease was Hemorrhage of the Lungs, which caused groat debility. He was obliged to relinquish preaching, and entertained doubts about ever being able to resume his vocation. Ho plaocd himself un der the care of Dr. Morse, and In a few months was restored to health through the medium of Inhala tion, and is at present preachiug to the people ol WestBuxon. HEMORKnAGE. Air. Isaac L. Barnes, of Brunswick, of this State, was troubled with 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 ior six days in succession, reduced very weak. Mr. Barnes was fully restored to health by the use of Dr, Morse’s luhaling Remedies. Still enjoys good health. HB1IIOBBIIAOE. Rev. Horace Norton, of Meadville, Pa., after being reduced to a very low state of health, by Hemorrhage from the Luogs, was so feohle that he could not walk livo roils without assistance. Came to Portland, placed hlmsolf under the care ofDr. Morse. He grad ually improved until he was fully restored to health. His weight increased from 121 pounds to 168 pouuds. ASTHMA. Mr. James A. Page, ot Bloomfield, lafterwards re moved to Aroostook) was severely troubled with Asth ma from a child, olten so badly that he could not i«r form any labor for months togetlior. It was a com mon thing for him to be obliged to sit up all night, with much dlfliculty of breathing. Mr. Page was radically cured through the medium of Inhalation, obtained of Dr. Morse. CATARRH, HHONCHITIg, Ac. Mr. Isaac Robinson,'of East Vaasalbnro’, was se verely troubled withpulmonary disease tor live years, with Chronic Catarrh, Bronchitis, severe hoarseness; could nut speak above a whisper for soveral months, during which timo he was routined to Iris room; a large abscess tonned on one lung, wluch broke and was discharged through the tubes out of tl* mouth. His physician thought his case hopeless. He was placed under the care ot Hr. Morse, and gradually Improved by the uso of the Inhaling Remedies, until he was fully restored to health. CHRONIC CATARRH. Mr. Silas W. Berry, ot Watervllle, this State, was troubled with Chronic Catarrh and pulmonary til* ease, which wirs tho cause of frequent spells of As phyxia, or suspendod animation. Ho had lost live sisters who died with consumption, and was nmoh alarmed about himself. Mr. Berry was fully restored to health try the use of Dr. Morse’s luhallng Reme dies. AN IMPORTANT CURE. Mrs. Caroline Atkinson, of Cornish, of this State, a wi.Iow whose husband gavo his life to his country in our recent civil war, and daughter of Mr. Samuel Knight, ot the same t»wn, was seriously attacked by a disease of the Langs. She Itad fastened upon her dangerous symptoms, by which site was prostrated very low, and uuable to oc removed for several days, and was given up to tho. Other organs were serious ly affected, and their natural secrotlons suppressed.

In this condition she placed herself under the care ol Dr. Morse. Through tire medium of his Inhaling Remedies she was fully restored to healt h, and is now a hale and hearty woman. Dr. Morse lots the names of more than two thou sand jiersoiis on his books, who have been cured ot Catarrh in its various tbrms, and it is sale to say that all t ho above named eases were caused by Catarrh, or procootlcd from that complaint. Persons at a distance can be treated by iottor. ¥ our obedient servant, CHARLES MORSE, Physician for Diseases of tho Throat and Lungs, No. G I leering Street, Portland, Me.
