Congressional. Washington, December 20. --Senate.--Mr. Morrill reported the bill to regulate the elective franchise in the District of Columbia. Mr. Sumner hoped it would be acted on very soon. The country demanded it. Mr. Davis called Mr. Sumner to order, saying that the bill was not before the Senate for discussion. Mr. Wilson called up the Senate bill to maintain the freedom of the inhabitants of States lately in rebellion. Mr. Sumner addressed the Senate in favor of the bill. He said that when he thought of what occurred in the chamber yesterday, in an attempt to white-wash the unhappy condition of the rebel States, he felt that he ought to speak of nothing else here to-day. He read a number of letters from the South, private and public, to show that the spirit of rebellion still existed. Mr. Saulsbury said that from indications there was to be a split in the Republican party, and if President Johnson stood by the principles of his special mes
From Washington. Washington, December 20. --The decree of Maximilian of September last having been submitted to Attorney-General Speed, that officer pronounced the opinion that it makes the working men in Mexico slaves. Secretary Seward enclosed this opinion to our Minister at Paris, who, at Mr. Seward's request, called the attention of the French Government to the subject, but to which no response has been received. The War Department has ordered a reduction of the white troops in Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi to seven thousand men. The Secretary of the Treasury officially acknowledges that he has appointed officers who have not subscribed to the test oath, having failed to obtain those who could be relied on for the performance of the revenue duties required, as nearly every man in the South fit for a revenue officer was at the same time either engaged in hostilities against the Government or holding State or Confederate offices, either willingly or unwilling
The report of General Howard. Washington, December 20. --General Howard, Superintendent of Freedmen's Affairs, in an elaborate report, makes many recommendations. He says that wherever the planters have taken advantage of the aid offered by the Bureau, the pest results have followed that the Bureau, in conjunction with the military force, is at present a means of encouraging immigration to the different Southern States; and that, as nearly $12,000,000 will be required for the expenditures of the Bureau for the next year, he does not feel that the difficult problem given him has been solved, nor does he hope for complete and satisfactory results in the work of the Bureau yet. He firmly believes that the same just God that conducted us to freedom will so continue to direct us that we shall be able to keep the pledge we have made, that freedom shall be a substantial reality.

effect of the President's message and General Grant's report — Carl Schurz's report--Southern representation--Mr. Harris--Appropriations to be cut down--Naval Academy--tariff, &c. Washington, December 20. --The President's message and General Grant's report on the condition of affairs in the South are having a very marked effect in both Houses, though the radicals see nothing in it to change their views. Carl Schurz's report, sent yesterday to the Senate, is quite minute, and takes pretty strong ground against trusting the affected loyalty of the Southern people. He differs from General Grant in his rose-colored report, and is not so much in favor of immediate restoration as General Howard. The Clerk of the House of Representatives has received certificates of election of Southern members only from North Carolina, 7; Louisiana, 4; Mississippi, 2; Tennessee, 7; Virginia, 6, and Arkansas, 1. Some of these have been referred to the select committee.
