Tho New York Assay Office Is a fired fact, un- less iho General Appropriation bill fails erUircly, of which there is at this hour much danger. The House is ruthlessly rejecting tho Senate amendments, and the Henato insists that it will not )ielii its right to mako important and neces- sary amendments, uimply because it is so late in tho the House having kept the Appro- priation bills back for so long a period. There ia also great reason to fear the leas of the Naval Appropriation bill, for the tame reason. The Senate bas JUB! refused an extra appropria- tion to the Bremen and Havre Steamship Line, and has authorised ihe contract to he revoked, if the Company wishes it. The general feeling is averse te steam lines. Tho Celorlc Engine appropriations are all re- jected. There aro no hopes for them this session. Doth Houses will probably ait all mght.
