JAN. ji. 1^: l*e;cau lic;£iiitetcy Our oi th* 4 /'. has had much to say the pa«t few weeks about the Administration party, its duties :u:d objects, who lead, who should lead, who are led by the nose, and who are expected to be swallowed into its rapacious j maw. The owl like gravity and wisdom manifested in these deserta tious certainly entitle them to some attention, and for fear they may die still-born, we propose to draw pub lic attention to them by this brief allusion in our columns. According to the Pickwick organ, the Admin istration party is composed exclu sively of hungry people and people who wish to make it the stepping stone to some political advantage, to be abandoned the moment the goal of their ambition is reached. It will not concede to its oppo nents even in a less degree the hon esty of purpose claimed for its friends. No sincerity, even if it involve an error of judgment, is ac corded to any man opposed to Rad icalism, but on the contrary, to be Conservative is to beyond the pale of salvation here and hereafter. To tally oblivious of the tainted record of its chief sponsors, its charges of corruption aud intrigue fall with peculiar grace beforethose who have observed the movings of the rotten mass that forms the nucleous of the Radical party in this Territory. Would it not be well for these prompters to imitate their standard bearer in the last canvass, and learn the wisdom there ,is in silence? While living iu glass houses, would it not bo wise to retrain from fling ing sand when rocks may be hurled 'in return ? Is it not apparent to themselves even, that the grand object of all their labor and extra zeal is as apparent outside as within their secret conclaves ? Their gaze is fixed with too much longing upon The spoils of office, for their loud professions of disinterested patriotism to carry any special weight. They sustain Congress, but demand in return that Congress shall sustain them. They mutt retain their fat salaries and stealings—patriotism most hare its reward.

It liad tho same reference. Mr. Julian introduced a bill pro viding for districts lately in revolt against the Government of tho Unit ed States.

It was referred to the Committee on Resolutions. CHICAGO, Dec. 15.—A Washing ton special says tho House yesterday made short work with tho Senate amendment to the District Sufirago Bill. Tho chairman of tho District Committeo called it up, and demand ed the previous question. Mr. Ilall, ©f New York, wanted to proposo an amendment, but Mr. Ingersoll de clined to yield the floor. The Dem ocrats not being inclined to filibuster tho bill passed, 118 to 80. Messrs. Raymond, Halo, Delano and Kasson, Conservative Republicans, also Maynard, Stokes, Ilawkius, Arnold, Conness( ? )voted ayej; and Messrs. Hubbard, Latham, Whalev, ofWest Varginia; McKoe, liandall, ofKen tuekey; Stillvvell, of Indiana; Cam boll, Cooper, Leftwick and Taylor, of Tennessee, voted nay. No doubt tho bill will pass over a veto. The Senate in Executive session, yesterday, referred the nominations to*various committees, but made no confirmations. General Ashley introduced n reso lution to-day in the House, for the appointment of a special committee to sec if any officers of the Govern ment have been guilty of a tnisd - mcanor.

The hill regulating suffrage in the District of Colnmhia pucd the House to-dav—ll7 to 46. It in believed that a majority of Congress is in favor of an early sale of the Government gold. It is expected that the President will veto the District Suffrage bill. Colorado and Nebraska will have to expunge the word " white" from their Constitutions, to be admitted. Lending colored men here con template a mass meeting to rejoice over the passage of the suffrage bill. One hundred any seventy-five pat ents wil( be issued by the patent office for the week ending Dec. 15. Tho passage of the negro suffrage bill by both liouses gives great satis faction to the negroes, and causes proportionate indignation amongthc white residents, who talk of holding a mass meeting and remonstrating. Tho amount of the National Bank Currency issue! during the week was ; total issued to date, §300,218,710. From this is to bo deducted the currency returned, in cluding worn out notes, amounting to $2,091,482; lenving an actual cir culation at this date, $298,130,939. Tho Treasury disbursements for tho week ending to-day aro as fol lows: War, 3,002,495 ; Navy, $293,- 000; Interior, $197,500 —total, $3,- 588,113. NEW ORLEANS, Dec. 22.—The futuro movements of Gen.

WASHINGTON, 24.—Advices from Minister Campbell aro not made public but represent his inability to reach the Juarez Government. NEW YOKK, Dec. 24.—The Times' special correspondent of New Or leans srys the mission of Gen. Sher man, although not accomplishing all that was expected, was by no means a failure; in the first place tho Envoys avoided nil appearance of communicating with tho French authorities by not lauding at Vera Cruz, and sought the Republican authorities under Juarez, whom they found atTauipico, and again at Mat amoras. The result of tho confer ence is that a joint plan of action has been determiiied upon between the United States and the Republic of Mexico; to go into effect ufter the withdrawal of tho French. Juarez will transfer his scut of Government to a point nameless at present, which Gen. Sherman informed the correa. pondent lie as a military man con sidered well chosen.
