taken on striking out the recommendation of General Grant, it was carried — yeas 28, nays 12. Mr. Conness then proposed to amend by inserting after the words Lieutenant General, "who shall be General-in-Chief of the armies of the United States, under the direction of the President, and who shall remain in chief command during the pleasure of the President," which was rejected — yeas 10, nays 28. The bill was then passed — yeas 31, nays 6--the latter being Messrs. Buckalew, Davis, Harding, Powell, Saulsbury and Wright. Miscellaneous. The draft in New York and Missouri was to commence on the 10th inst. In Ohio, filling the quota by volunteering had been given up as a hopeless job. The Tuscumbia, a monster iron-clad at St. Louis, had broken her back by her own weight while laying at the wharf. She is, therefore, useless. T. Barnard, for many years agent of the Associated Press in Washington city, died on the 15th inst. The sum of $10,000,000 is asked f<
tion 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.

The Red river Disaster — reported safety of Steble's command. The Washington correspondent of the Boston Advertiser says that no official reports of the recent battles on Red river have been received from Gen. Banks in addition to those published in the New Orleans Era. Unofficial letters from persons upon whose testimony reliance is
reastworks. The lowest estimate of the enemy's loss in the battle yesterday is 20,000. These figures are corroborated by a Yankee Colonel, wounded, and in our hands. The Yankee General Stevenson was killed on the 10th. Our losses yesterday in killed and wounded are estimated at 2,000. Among the casualties on our side yesterday were the following: Gen. Gordon, slightly wounded; Colonel Baker, of the 16th Miss., killed; Lieut. Col. Felter, of the same regiment, killed; Col. Harding, of the 19th Miss., killed; Lieut. Col. Neimer, of the --Va., killed. There was continuous fighting for ten hours yesterday on one point, and so severe was the musketry fire that trees were cut down by it. Prisoners say that Gen. Grant expressed a determination not to recross over the river while he has a man left. Reports from Fredericksburg say that the enemy are arresting all the male citizens as hostages for prisoners alleged to have been captured by citizens on Sunday
hilst gallantly leading his brigade is the thickest of the fight — a nobler spirit of braver man has not been offered a sacrifice to this war; Brig Gen Daniel was wounded Thursday, and died to day; Brig Gen Stuart, of Stonewall brigade, was also wounded.

t sevril of our cousins and all of our first wife's relashun.--He isn't our grandfather and our aunt in the country. Scarcely. And yit numeris persons would have us think so. It's trod he runs for Congress and sevril other public grosserys; but then he ain't everybody else likewise. But we've got the Afrikan, or he's got us, rather, and now what are we going to do about it? He's an arful noosance. Praps he isn't to blame for it. Praps he was created for some wise purpose, like Bill Harding and New England rum, but it's mity hard to see it. At any rate he's here, and it's a pity he coodn't go orf sumwhares quietly by hiself, whare he cood ware red weeskits and speckied neckties, and gratterfy his ambishun invaris interestin wase without having a eternal fuss kickt up about him. But praps I am bearing down too hard upon Cuffy. Cum to think on it, I am. He wouldn't be sich an infernal noosance if people wood let him alone. He mite indeed, be interestin. And now I think o
of the Committee on Ways and Means in the House of Repre sentatives, and rumor says is to succeed Secretary, Fessenden as Chairman of the Senate Committee on Finance. He is an accomplished parliamentarian, and was, it will be remembered, the Republican candidate for Speaker of the House during the great contest of the Thirty-sixth Congress, which terminated in the election of Mr. Pennington, of New Jersey. He is but thirty-eight years of age, being the youngest man in the Senate, except Harding, of Oregon. Henry Wilson keeps up a continual restless, unsettled sort of motion in and out of his seat, to and from the House chamber. Since anti-slavery sentiments have become popular, and Wilson is relieved from the necessity of continual outcry and exertion against "the peculiar institution," he is becoming stout and portly. This may be one of the benefits of "the anti-slavery legislation of Congress." Talking to him just now is his colleague in the lower House, George S. Boutwe
reasury that over two million bales of cotton can be secured and shipped on account of the Government from Savannah during the next two months. Miscellaneous.

Cragin; Harding, of Oregon, who will be succeeded by George H. Williams; Howard, of Michigan; Wilson, of Massachusetts; Powell, of Kentucky; Farwell, of Maine; Wilkinson, of Minnesota; Ten Eyck, of New Jersey, and Carlile, of the State of Virginia. The New York National Club was to have had a dinner on Saturday evening in honor of the victories of Generals Sherman and Thomas. The New York Herald shows its characteristic "enterprise" by getting up a four-column report, in which Governor Andrew, of Ma
ebruary 4th, says: "Confederate sympathizers, and, indeed, all who have a love for adventure and courage, will probably remember that a somewhat notable character--Miss Belle Boyd--was married a short time ago, in London, to a certain Lieutenant Harding. Almost immediately after the wedding, the husband returned to his duty in the Confederate States, and has since fallen into the hands of the Federal authorities, by whom he is detained a prisoner. The consequence is, that Mrs. Harding isthe hands of the Federal authorities, by whom he is detained a prisoner. The consequence is, that Mrs. Harding is now in London, almost in a state of destitution, all her supplies being cut off, and her own relations being dead. She has written a book, descriptive of her adventures in the Confederate service, but has received an intimation that her husband's life depends upon its suppression. Under these circumstances, an appeal is made to the public for sympathy and pecuniary assistance."
