Congressional. Washington, December 13. --In the Senate, to-day, Anthony and Fessenden denounced the Associated Press reports of Senatorial proceedings as incorrect and meagre. The House has, by a large majority, requested the President to suspend the order mustering out officers of the veteran reserve corps. The Senate reconstruction resolution passed the House to-day. Doolittle, Dixon and Cowan are the only Senators who voted for it, and it is expected that they will hereafter vote with the opposition. The House Committee of Foreign Relations will take bold ground on the Mexican question. The New Jersey Republicans are confident that Mr. Stockton will be unseated in the Senate. Mr. Stevens's resolution, as amended by the Senate, came up in the House to-day. He said he had objection to it, as amended, but would move for its adoption by the House at the proper time. The resolution is binding on the House only — containing the part stricken out

Chaplain; John Lester, Richmond, G. Pursuivant; R. D. Sanxay, Richmond, G. Filer; Thomas Angel, G. Steward. The Lodge has had most harmonious sessions and was attended by several distinguished Masons from abroad. Among them, Hon. B. B. French, of Washington city; Rev. C. C. Bitting, of Alexandria; Lieutenant-Governor Cowper; E. H. Lane, Esq.; General Terry, late of the "Stonewall brigade"; Colonel Withers, of the Eighteenth Virginia regiment, and many others.

The volunteer Militia. --Governor Peir-point, we understand, has commissioned Colonel Thomas P. August as adjutant, with the rank of first lieutenant, and this officer will at once proceed to organize a company of volunteer militia in this city, to be called the "Richmond Light Infantry Blues." No one will be allowed to join who has not taken the oath of allegiance to the Constitution of the United States and the restored Government of Virginia. The name selected is auspicious, and will secure its speedy success. No company in the South dated its organization so far back, or numbered in its ranks so many prominent men, or enjoyed so wide a popularity, as the old "Richmond Blues." The company volunteered in the last war at the outbreak of hostilities, and of the one hundred and four men carried into the service, only seventeen escaped the sad misfortunes of the bloody conflict. Captain O. Jennings Wise was killed at Roanoke Island, and Captain Fred. Carter in one of the battles
