WASHINGTON, March 6 af- ter the reading of the journal the contested election caso of Featberatone vs. Gate, Arkansas, was talren up, and the contostoo, Mr Cate, took the floor in his own behalf Be said it the duty of the members not to elect a representative from the First dis- trict of Arkansas, but laying aside all preju- dice or part; fueling determine whom the people of that district bad chosen to repre- sent them He asked only justice for freemen. Mr McRae (Ark defended the people of his state from the charges of lawlessness, in- timidation and violence The Colored Man's Champion. Mr Houk (Tenn made a strong presenta- tion of the claims of the contestant He charged that the Arkansas bulldozing com- munity" hud entered Into a conspiracy to prevent the return of Mr Peatherstone to congress He appealed for a fair chance for the coloi ed people of the south and said no man hold a seat upon thin floor TV bo was retiuiied-by the uf Win- chester rifle clubs and fraudulent ballot boxes." He was in favor of a national elec- tion law, and he thought the government strong enough to protect the colored people at the south, the white people at the north and its citiz ns at home and abroad This government protected everywhere except at home. In conclusion he demanded the pre- vious question, which wm ordered by a vote of 145 to 141 Featberstone Takes tho Mr Outhwaite offered a resolution declar- tng Foatberstone not entitled to Lib seat This was rejected (138 to Mr. Hitt (Dls.) voting with the Democrats M r Springer moved to recomit the oase, with inductions to send a sub-committee to Arkanwifl to in- vestigate the election in the disputed rlixlnct.

Crustav Lmdenthal, the well known bridge engineer, appeared before the sub-committoo on commerce, in charge of the bill, and ar- gued against the adoption of the suggestions from the war deportment. Mr. Lmdenthal said that to rube the central height of the bridge to 155 feet would be impracticable, because the grade would be too gi eat. The height of the Brooklyn bridge, he said, was 135 feet Concerning the time suggested by the war departmant for submitting plans and beginning wurk Mr Mndenthal said that also was impracticable sug- gestion. Tbe company would have to ob- tain propeil> valued at Thin would probably cause a long fight in the courts and would delay the commencement of work. It would also take a long time to get up the mstings. Mr. Tlndenthal that the company wanted three years to commence work, with extension of two years more, If necessary The pinna for the bridge contemplate structure with a span of 3, 000 feet It will have ten The oost of tbe bridge proper, exclusive of the approaches and the for the properly that would have to be purchased, will be tlS.OOO.OOO. The cables to support the bridge are to be four teat in diameter. In the Senate.

Mr. Barbour advocated the bill He spoke of the gt eat interest which the peo- ple of Virginia took in the measure, and id that it had been favored in the plat- forms of both political pa- lies In that state It was of deepest and protonndest inter- sit to the people of Virginia who had done much for the of education in the flfttAU the people of other state.

Mr Plumb spoke in opposition to the bill, saying that it was clear to him that the people of the south did not want this money, it was certain that if muney was be- it was not wimtod, and that it would not be wisely expended.

The Republican aldermen voted In favor of the order, but the Democratic majority defeated its pas sage Tbe votes of those five hundred will be challenged at the election on Monday next, and an appeal made to the United States supreme court.

A WHITE SQUADRON ROW. Capt. Howell, of the Atlanta, Placed Un- der Arrest by Admiral walker. NJ.W YORK, March 6 Brooklyn Eagle's Washington special says Capt John A Howell, of the Atlanta, has "reported" Admual Walker to the navy In naval parlance, means that he has com- plained of his superior's action and demanded satisfaction by a court of inquiry or other- wise, in a mannei to be decided by the secre- taiy A private letter from the squadron gives the cause of the trouble When the fleet was sailing out of the port of Toulon every one was astonished to sco siguals hoisted on the flagship ordering the com- manding officer of the Atlanta under arrest, and directing the executive officer, Tieut. Commander Condon, to take command It soeuis that for some reason or other the Atlanta had gone out of her course and broken up the sailing formation Without giving her commnnder any opportunity for explanation he was publicly degraded be- fore the whole fleet Naval officers declare such a proceeding unprecedented, and claim that Capt Howell was evidently not to blame for the supposed mismanagement of the ship, as shown by the fact that he has since boon reinstated m command It is significant that Howell was about the only officer in the fleet who was not selected for duty by Walker, and It is said that the re- lations between the two have never been cordial An Old Steamboat Captain Dead.
