Poor Devils. --The "Union" inhabitants of the new State of Western Virginia are in a bad way. The "new State" can't get into the "glorious Union" with slavery. One of the traitors and bogus representatives thus begs his nigger loving friends in the Federal Congress for mercy: Mr. Willey, (Union,) of Virginia, proposed to amend the bill so as to obviate the objection of the Senator from Vermont, enabling the State to be admitted when it had ratified a Constitution, republican in form, with a fundamental condition that all children born after the 4th of July shall be free. In regard to Mr. Sumner's amendment, he said that most of the slaves now remaining in Western Virginia are old family slaves, and gradual emancipation would be better for the interests of the State. The bill in effect proposes the admission of a new free State. The God of Nature ordained that Western Virginia should be a free State, and there was probably not eight thousand slaver there to-day.

re Gazette, of the 8th inst. The Yankee Congress. The first session of the 38th Congress commenced in Washington on Monday. In the Senate the credentials of several newly-elected Senators were presented. Mr. Davis made an earnest opposition to the admission of Senators from West Virginia, contending that, constitutionally, there was no such State as West Virginia, and therefore there could be no Senators from such a State. By a vote of thirty-six yeas to five nays the Senators (Messrs Willey and Van Winkle) were admitted to their seats. The House of Representatives was organized by the election of Schuyler Colfax as Speaker on the first ballot. He received 101 votes; Cox, 42; Dawson, 12; Mallory, 10; all others, 17. Necessary to a choice, 92. The Speaker, on assuming the chair, declared himself in favor of "crushing out the rebellion" by all the means within the power of the Government. Lincoln's message was not delivered in either House. From East Tennessee.
said he had no desire to force equality on the Senator from Indiana. What he wanted was to let every man assume the station God intended him to attain. The yeas and nays were ordered, and resulted as follows: Yeas.--Messrs. Anthony, Brown, Chandler, Clark, Collamer, Conness, Cowan, Dixon, Fessenden, Foot, Foster, Grimes, Hale, Harland, Harris, Howard, Howe, Lane, (Ind.,) Lane, (Kansas,) Morgan, Morrill, Pomeroy, Ramsey, Sherman, Sprague, Sumner, Ten Eyck, Trumbull, Wade, Wilkinson, Willey, Wilson--34. Nays.--Messrs. Buckalew, Davis, Harding, Hendricks, Nesmith. Powell, Richardson, Riddle, Saulsbury, Van Winkle--12. The loyal member from Kentucky would like a few slaves to be Spared. Mr. Stevens offered an amendment to the Conscription bill, that persons of African descent, between 20 and 45 years of age, whether citizens of the United States or not, shall be enrolled and form part of the national forces, and when a slave shall be drafted and mustered into the se
Mr Henderson offered an amendment providing that no part of said appropriation be paid to the troops mustered in after May 15, 1864, unless they shall be mustered for a period of six months. Rejected--19 to 17. The bill was then put upon its passage, with the following result: Ayes--Messrs Anthony, Clark, Collamer, Cowan; Doolittle, Fessenden, Foot, Foster, Grimes, He is, Harian, Howard, Howe, of Indiana, Laue of Kansas, Morgan, Morrvill, Strerman, Sumner, Van Winkle, Willey, Wilson 22.

use Committee on Appropriations has cut down by one-half what has been estimated for by the appropriate departments. If so, they can have no idea, in reality, of keeping up military establishments in the South. Names of some Senators who Sustain the President. A careful analysis of the status of the Republican Senators reveal the fact that Senators Conness, Cowan, Dixon, Doolittle, Fessenden, Foster, Grimes, Harris, Henderson, Norton, Ramsey, Sherman, Stewart, Trumbull, Van Winkle, Willey, Williams, and possibly Yates, do not endorse the radical anti-administration policy. Members gone home. Many Senators and Representatives, in anticipation of the temporary adjournment, left last evening and this morning for their several homes, making the attendance quite thin in both branches to-day. Many leave this afternoon also, and with other parties going home for the holidays, makes it dull here. What the President Thinks of Reconstruction. Hon. Hiram McCulloch cal
