Pending the consideration of the bill the morning hour expired, and the|bill to regulate the tenure of office was taken up, the questiou being on Mr. Hendrick’s amendment. The proposition was debated by Messrs. Hen dricks, Cowan, Williams, Erelinghuysen, and others, when, on the suggestion of Sir. Bucka lew.

Bills were introduced, read twice, and refer red as follows: By Mr. Taylor, a joint resolution direct ing the President to cause discharges, written or printed, to lie furnished to all volunteer commissioned officers who have serv ed in the army or navy, and been honorably discharged, to the Military Committee; by Mr. Hart, a bill providing for the payment of boun ties to representatives of soldiers who were killed or wrlio died iu tire military service of the United States, whose term of enlistment is less than one year, to the Military Commit tee; by Mr. Sheliagarger, declaring forfeiture of certain privileges of citizenship for acts of rebellion against the United States, and pro viding for a resumption of those privileges in certain eases, to the Judieiaiy Committee; by Mr. Eckley, a joint resolution placing the Cnited States police at the Treasury building OB the same looting, and giving them the same power and compensation as the Capital police, to the Committee on Public Buildings and Grounds; byr Mr. Wasliburne, Ind., re establishing civil governments in the States lately in rebellion, excepting Tennessee, to the Reconstruction Committee; hv Mr. Banks, to repeal so much of the naval" appropriation bill of April 17tb, 185(5, as appropriates $25,000 for the purchase of the tight of draining through the navy yard at Charlestown, Mass, referred to the Committee on Naval Affairs; by Mr. Noel, to amend the act regulating the elective franchise in the "District of Columbia, so as to disfranchise no person on account oi color, referred; by Mr. Niblack, a hill to repeal so much of tho iuterna! revenue laws as im pose a tax ou manufactured cotton, referred to the Commiitae on Ways and Means: The resolution ottered last Monday, by Mr. Loan, and afterwards by Mr. Kelso, in refer ence to impeachment, came up.

Mr. Loan thereupon proceeded to read a | written speech, in which he arraigned the j President for acts of his administration, and ) suggested that he was privy to the assassina tion of President Lincoln. Mr. Hale desired Loans w ords to be taken down, and asked if charging the President w itli complicity in the assassination of President Lincoln was in order. A page of Mr. Loan’s manuscript was ac cordingly taken to the desk and rerd. After lively debate between Messrs. Hale and Loan, the Speaker decided the point of order raised by Mr. Hale, saying this resolution makes a general charge of high crimes and misdemeanors, without specifying what those crimes are. The resolution being now open to debate, a member on debating it charges the President was au accomplice in the assassina tion of Mr. Lincoln. That is certainly in or der, both under the Constitution and the rules of the House. Mr. Loan then continued his speech to the C1IU .

The Occupation of Matamo ran by Gen. Sedgwick. Decisions of the Supreme Court xr a m . . Washington, Jan. 14. Mr. Ashley has been instructed by the Corn mittec on Territories to report liis amendmon to the bi ll to re-establish civil government ii N orth Carolina, as a substitute for Mr. Stevens bill now before the House. . 11 « understood that the President has nom t Hated to the Senate Edgar Cowan, as Ministci to Austria. . The Government income exclusively fron internal revenue sources, on Saturday, wa $325,408.27; making a total since July 1st, o $175,471484.90; leaving $100,000,000 to bo col leeted for tile balance of the fiscal year. t( complete the estimates of David A. Wells Commissioner of Revenue. The manufacturing, trado and ogricultura interests show continued enlargement, activitj and enterprise. In answer to a request, the President sent ti the House to-day a communication from Gen eral Sheridan,dated New Orleans, Decembei 2lsl, in which he gives the result of his trip tc the Rio Grand, explaining that the motives which induced Gon, Sedgwick to tako posses sion of Matamoras were unknown to him, but he alleges that the reason was the protection of American citizens, with their property.— lie thinks that Gen. Sedgwick was made a cat’s paw of by the merchants of that city some of them claiming citizenship being ultra Maximilian’s adherents, and late blockade run ners. The occupation of Matamoras was a mere form to which Escobado made no objec tions. Th -re is no doubt that this unauthor ized and harmless intervention did much to ward reconciling and bringing about the good state of affairs existing in Matamoras when Gen. Sheridan left Brownsville, enabling him to release Ortega who had but few friends on the Mexican side alter the suppression of the Canales usurpations It upears that 28li,49(i persons arrived in the United States lrom foreign countries the past year, 39,000 of whom went West. Associate Justice Field to-day delivered the opinion of the United States Supreme Court in the Missouri test oath case. John Cummins, a Roman Catholic priest, indicted for preach ing ar.d teaching without taking the oath pre scribed by the Constitution of the State, being plaintiff in error, the Court decides that the test hath in this case is unconstitutional, being in its nature a punishment without trial, and in its character ex post facto, and as a bill ol attainder. The juigment of the Court below was reversed, with directions that the plaintiff shall depart without delay. Justice Field also delivered the opinion of the Court in the ex parte cases of Garland and Marr who, having taken part in the rebellion, ask to be readmitted to i racticc. The Court held that as the statute imposes a punishment for an offence which may not have been pun ishable at the time the offence was committed, it is iu its nature an ex post facto law. Attoi ncys are noi officers of the United States; they are officors of Courts and hold their offices dui ing good behavior. The Court is not the regis ter of the edicts of any other power. The ap plicants obtained pardon from the President, which relieved them from the consequence of their offence and made them citizens in the eye of the law, what they were before they committed the committed the offence. Con gress cannot limit its prerogative—it cannot be fettered by legislative restriction, and it fol lowed that the prayer of the petitioners must bli granted; the rule wliieb requires an aitor ney to take the tost oath must be restricted ac cordingly. Associate Justice Miller, for himself, Chief Justice Chase and Associate Justices S wayne and Davis, read a dissenting opinion, main taining that tlie practice in Court is a privi lege, and attorneys are subject to legislation, the same us judges. The law makes no dis tinction, but requires all civil and military offi cers to take tot same oath. Attorneys exert a marked influence on the character of the Gov ernment. If all the attorneys iu the Soutii hail been faithful to their allegiance as they are required to swear, we should have been spared the horrors of rebellion. It was not claimed by the majority of the Court that the law works attainder of the blood, therefore this is not a bill of attainder, nor did it appear that it convicted and designated persons, or declar ed punishment. Persons who arrayed them selves in hostility to the Government, and gave aid and comfort to the enemy, forfeited every right to appear iu Court. This was not a criminal hut a civil proceeding, which mere ly affected private rights, retrospectively.— PROM EUROPE NEWS B If THE CABLE. DESTRUCTIVE FIRE AT YO KOHAMA.

With the oponing ol the new year wep:eseiuod to the readers ol' the DAILY PRESS, A l'aper Uulmgcd to the Mize of the largest New England Dailies. Tlie enlargement oi our daily edition is equivalent to the addition of between three anrl four columns to its size. This additional space will be devoted to de tails of important events, which wo have heretofore been obliged to give in brief, and to selections from current literature, grave or gay, such as we have lately been obliged to omit altogether. What the character of the paper thus enlarged will be, its past history will show. The Press was es tablished primarily to represent the Republican par ty of Maine. It was impossible lor the controlling party of tho State to remain voiceless in this city. The Press will continue to defend the principles of the Liberal party of America. The war lias closed one great cycle in our national history—the cycle during which aristocracy at tho South and democra cy at the North grew up side by side, a period of jealousy and conflict, resulting in an appeal to arms and the victorious supremacy of the democratic prin ciple. We have entered ou a state of transition, which seems likely to prove longer than most of us antic! pated. The Press will insist upon a settlement which will secure the fruits of our victory. Nothing is settled till it is settled right. We must have de mocracy at the South as well as at the North—equal rights for all secured by equal laws, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, impartial suffrage. Of the profound convictions of the Republican party tf Maine, the Press will remain a faithful exponent. The present year will probably witness the exten sion of the telegraph round the w orld. The comple tion of that great enterprise will compel a change, which has already begun, in the management ct newspapers. The leading features of the world’s history will bo registered from day to day by the tel egraph. The expense of t-pedal dispatches from all parts of the world will prove too gre.it fur single newspapers, and correspondence will regain some thing ot its old importance. Newspaper associations or news agents will assume the task of furnishing the daily dispatches, while correspondents will fur nish details, explanations and illustrations, by mail. The Atlantic telegraph has already destroyed tho system by which our lorcign news has for years been furnished by steamer, and already the Tribune has Us special correspondents established in almost every capital in Europe. We canuo rival the teats o New York journalism but we must be governed by the same considerations. In view of the intimate rela tions existing between Maine and the British Pro vinces by which she is environed, we are happy to announce that “Spurwink’s” Canadian Loiters Will be continued. We have also engaged Regular Correspondents in Washington, New York, RomIou and Augusta, and occasional correspondents at various points throughout the State. During the session of the Legislature, we shall publish Special Dispatches from Augusta overy morning, furnishing a synop sis of tho previous day’s proceedings. To the people of Maine, and especially to people who have business relations with Portland, wc hope to moke the Press more valuable than any paper published outside of the State can possibly be. We shall publish the same telegraphic summary as other New England newspapers. We shall not publish special dispatches from Washington, but we shall have regular correspondence from that point, and a Daily Summary of Maine News which readers here would be sorry to miss. We shall have Full and Accurate Market Reports, forwarded by telegraph from al parts of the United States, from Canada, and irom England. A weekly Review oi the Portland Markets, and an accurate Report of Maine Skipping, in foreign and domestic ports, will be published as heretotore. There will be NO INCREASE IN THE PRICE Of the Daily Press. For CICiHT DOLLARS A VEAR ! Wc expect to furnish a paper, Tlie Largest In tlie State, and as large as in oilier Status is offered for ten or twelve dollars a year. THE MAINE STATE PRESS Is not like many weeklies, a mere waste basket for the leavings ol the daily edition. It is designed to be as carefully made up as if it were a perfectly inde pendent publication. It contains from week to week, the most important articles which appear in the daily, together with a considerable amount of Matter Expressly Prepared for its Columns We shall add to its attractions during the coming year. An Agricultural Department, To be conducted by the Rev. WILLIAM A. DREW, of Augusta, a veteran journalist, widely and favorably known in Maine, and a contributor lor sometime past, to the Press over tlie signature of “Traxi.” Mr. Drew’s special qualifications for this work need no heralding. The Shipping News of the TPeek Will be published without abridgment in the State Press, as will also the Be view of the Portland Markets, And the Brighton Market Iltporis. To country traders the weekly report of Portland prices currrent alone will be well worth the subscrip tion price. In addition to a careful Digest of General and Stale News, We shall also furnish weekly a page of Miscellaneous Reading for the Family. The weekly edition is made up in eight large pages, of six columns each, and is the Largest Weekly Paper iu New England. It is offered to the public at the low price of ’J DOLLARS A YEAR, invariably in advance. To a club of new subscribers, eleven copies will l>e sent for twenty dollars, aud the same discount is offered to larger club9. NOTICES OP THE PRESS. [From the Eastern Argus, Jan. 2] —The Press appeared yesterday morning enlarged by the addition of inches to tlie length of its col umns. Its make-up has also been changed again, and on the whole it presented a decidedly improved appearance. Our cotemporary’s “new clothes” are somewhat larger than ours, but the “ biggest are not always the best.” [From the Portland Evening Star, Jan. 1.] The Daily Press appears this morning in an en large ' form, making it now fully equal in size to any daily newspaper iu New England. The editor, iu his New Year’s Salutatory, shows that tlie success of the paper for the past year hav been most gratifying, and we are glad of its prosperity. The return to the original stylo of arranging the contents ol the paper, is one of the most agreeable features of the change. [From the Portland Advertiser, Jan. 2.] Tlie Daily Press appeared yesterday morning in an enlarged form. It is now fully equal in size to any daily taper in New England. In the arrangement ol reading matter it lias returned to the original style, which wc think quite an improvement in its appear ance. Since the Press has been under the editorial man agement ot Mr. Richardson, its editorials have been high toned and reliable, wielding a powerful influ ence over its patrous on all politic. 1 matters. He has taken a lair stand, alwa. s discussing topics in a dignified manner, yet leaning in all vilai issues with his party. While we cannot always agree with all of his political notions, we heartily bear witness to the ability, character and culture he has displayed in its management, and wish him and the proprietors even more prosperity in the next year than it ha9 had in the past. Its news is judiciously awl carelUlly selected, and a gent nil culture and literary taste characterizes its contents. As a good family newspaper it has no su perior; and while Mr. Lincoln occupies the city ed itor’s chair there will be no lack of local news, as it is generally acknow ledged in that department he has no equal in 'he State. The enlargement argues a prosperous business, at least for ur cotemporary, and we hope it will never be found necessary to curtail the dimensions of this enterprising and respectable sheet. [From the Lewiston Journal, Jan. l.J The Portland Press has increased Its size equiva lent to an addition of three or four columns. This enlargement, following so closely upon its resurroe tion tirom the ashes of the great tire, shows that the piinciples it advocates and its efforts to cater to tli? literary tastes of its readers are appreciated by the public. The additional sp.ee now obtained will be devoted to selections from current literature. [From the Bangor Whig.] — The Portland Press was enlarged on the 1st of January to about the size of the Boston Daily Post and Advertiser—which arc our largest New England dailies and it now makes a very handsome appear ance. This evidence of prosperity on the part of so good and reliable a paper as the tress is gratifying. It shows, too, that Portland has lost nothing ol vigor, enterprise or resource, by the great fire, but that its course is still onward—that its business is in foot in creasing, notwithstanding the apparent calamity ot last year—and that its promise of commercial great ness is certain to l>c fulfilled. The Press Is among the best of the New England papers, and its present appearance is a credit to the State. [From the Bath Times.] 0*“ The Portland Press comes out greatly enlarg ed, and wo suspecL it now gives another settler to tin) Jriustion which is “ the principal paper in Portland.” t is bound to distance its competitors. [From the Worcester (Mass.,) Spy.] This Press — Among the papers that commence the new year with enlarged sheets and manifest signs of prosperity, are the Portland Press and the Hartford Evening Press. The former is the largest and ttest daily in tin* State of Maine, and the latter wo have long regarded as one of the ablest of our Connecticut exchanges. • [From the Bangor Times.] GTi/ The Portland Daily Press conics to us consid er ibly enlarged and w ith a return to its old stylo of “ make-up. Tills enlargement—so soon after the groat tire—to a size equal with the leading Boston j dailies, speaks favorably for the prosperity of the ; city and inuicates a good degree of enterprize on the part of the proprietors. The Press is edited with i ability, lias able contributors ami as the leading j paper of the dominant party, U a power in the land. WANTED. Help Wanted.
