The report of General Howard. Washington, December 20. --General Howard, Superintendent of Freedmen's Affairs, in an elaborate report, makes many recommendations. He says that wherever the planters have taken advantage of the aid offered by the Bureau, the pest results have followed that the Bureau, in conjunction with the military force, is at present a means of encouraging immigration to the different Southern States; and that, as nearly $12,000,000 will be required for the expenditures of the Bureau for the next year, he does not feel that the difficult problem given him has been solved, nor does he hope for complete and satisfactory results in the work of the Bureau yet. He firmly believes that the same just God that conducted us to freedom will so continue to direct us that we shall be able to keep the pledge we have made, that freedom shall be a substantial reality.

effect of the President's message and General Grant's report — Carl Schurz's report--Southern representation--Mr. Harris--Appropriations to be cut down--Naval Academy--tariff, &c. Washington, December 20. --The President's message and General Grant's report on the condition of affairs in the South are having a very marked effect in both Houses, though the radicals see nothing in it to change their views.

He differs from General Grant in his rose-colored report, and is not so much in favor of immediate restoration as General Howard. The Clerk of the House of Representatives has received certificates of election of Southern members only from North Carolina, 7; Louisiana, 4; Mississippi, 2; Tennessee, 7; Virginia, 6, and Arkansas, 1. Some of these have been referred to the select committee.
