Their permanent support by the Government is not contemplated, and the only place open for their reception is New England, although the majority of these men here scorn the idea of working for a living, and when asked to work answer that they did not come here to work, but to avoid it. Who saved the capital? The attempt of the Philadelphia press to claim for the small band of Pennsylvania troops who arrived at Washington on the 18th of April, the credit of having saved the capital from seizure by the rebels, has excited much ridicule here. It is well known that this squad of four hundred and fifty men came here without arms, clothes, equipments, or discipline, and were here for weeks before they were fit for any service. The 6th Massachusetts was the first armed regiment to enter Washington when it was beleaguered, and the District militia was the sole reliance for its p

Among them were some fifteen Brigadier Generals. Bayard Taylor was nominated for Secretary of Legation at St. Petersburg, and the committee reported favorably. The nomination was not acted upon.

In reply to the Senate's resolution calling for General Mansfield's report concerning the rebel steamer Merrimac, that body has been respectfully informed it is deemed inconsistent with the public interest at present to furnish a copy of the document.

Nearly all the Western States have constitutional or legislative provisions excluding free negroes from a residence within their limits. New England is regarded as the only available refuge for the contrabands. It is proposed now to colonize them in Massachusetts, where they can be taught a variety of industrial pursuits in warm and comfortable works hops, and reduce the cost of labor to the manufacturers.

ntion of many who were at first carried away with the idea of abolishing slavery in the Federal capital. It is rapidly becoming apparent that the prosecution of this schemes will not only make the city of Washington the rendezvous of the most worthless class of population, but will be regarded by the whole country as an evidence of consciousness on the part of the Republicans that the power they now possess will be soon swept from their grasp, never more to be resumed. The speech of Senator Wright this afternoon produced a marked effect upon the Senate and the audience present. The earnest and eloquent manner in which he enunciated the duty of Congress, to legislate solely with a view to put down the rebellion, without stooping for a moment to discuss matters of inferior importance, made a deep impression. His statement that the excitement had culminated and would subside, and his prophecy that by next year conservatism will rule the country, made the radicals wince. What s

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 as whiskey, brandy, gin, wine, or by any other name, not otherwise provided, fifty cants per gallon, on the basis of the first proof; and so in proportion for any

Mr. Edwards moved, as an amendment, the following: That this tax shall be assessed on all such spirits held by any person or persons for sale at the time this act shall take effect. This amendment was lost, establishing, it is thought, the final sense of the House as to taxing any article not manufactured at the time the act shall take effect. Issue of Treasury Certificates.
