From the Federal capital. From a Northern paper of April 2d we copy the following Washington correspondence: Action of the House on the Tax bill. The House spent most of the day to-day in considering the Tax Bill, which is pushed vigorously by the Committee of Ways and Means. Many members have but little relish for this important work, and the House dwindles rapidly below a quorum. A call of the House was made this afternoon, and all sorts of excuses were made by members for absenting themselves. One was called off by his wife, another "by the telegraph," another by important personal business, another "was excessively hungry," &c. Mr. Stevens is obliged to crack the parliamentary whip vigorously over the team to keep them in the traces. Pending the section taxing spirits the following was finally adopted as a substitutes for the section reported by the Committee of Ways and Means: On spirits mixed with other liquors or material, or prepared in any way to be sold a

I do not believe there will be 300 acres of cotton planted in the county. We have a cavalry company in progress, for the equipment of which $1,000 have been subscribed." The Sande

From the North. Our Northern dates are as late as Thursday, April 3. The news is by no means important, and we therefore make very brief selections: From General Banks column. Woodstock, Va., April 2. --Afternoon.--The rebels, when retreating yesterday, attempted to burn a bridge over the creek near Narrow Passage, but it was extinguished. The magnificent railroad bridge, a hundred feet high, over the same stream, was burnt by Jackson when retreating from General Shields. ited confidence in the Yankee troops, hold unrestricted intercourse with them. Gen. Banks is here and Gen. Shields at Strasburg. A division post-office has been established here, but the mails are irregular at present.
