Confederate Congress.first session. Senate. Wednesday, April 9, 1862. Mr. Barnwell, from the Finance Committee, reported back House bill to authorize the advance of certain sums of money to the State of Missouri, with recommendation favorable to its passage. Mr. Barnwell explained that the bill was an amendment to a law of the Provisional Congress, appropriating one million of dollars to the State of Missouri, for the payment of her State troops for services rendered before they were received into the Confederate States.

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.

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
