How the Matter Stands Between Senate and for the Week- Other Current Items, WASHINGTON, February There is no foundation for the or in- timation that the bouse conferees on the postofflce will appropriate toward subsidizing steamship lines to Central and South-America. As the sole differsncte be- tween the two houses is over amend- ment, the senate conferees have only the alternative of withdrawing it or defeating the bill complete in Itself, simply because tbo Hour.e will nofradd ifMO.OOOsniMidy to it. The Senate will therefore withdraw its amend menr, just as it did last yenr, and more thait once before; but Senate should choose to be obstinate, CUairman Blonnt of the postomee committee,  n? will pass the resolution'addressing Judg' Will .s out of office.

Hem- tt is of the appropriations committee, up- on whom the hardest work devolves, are divided in opinion respecting their ability ai-d that of the Senate to creditably Bticom- h oil that is expected, bnt the majority Lope that, barring accidents anil this wilful acts of obstruction, it may still be found possible to avoid the necessity for a 'Sailed session of the Filtieth Congress. To this end the right of the Senate tuid its committees to opportunity for deliberation upon important matters not yet brought be. lore it, will be waived, and the Senate, as done in previous instances, will cactent itself, under protest.with snoh amendments to honsu lecislatlon as it can secure in hasty conference, taking much for grunted and trusting much to luck. To print and thoroughly examine the naval, legislative, dfrflcitncy and fortification appropriation bills, in their several ordinary sl.fgea through the Senate up to the point of final action, would require almost as many weeks as there remain days of the present session. Miscellaneous subjects of legis- lation, which will probably fill np the spare moments put down" the caucus programme, are as The labor arbitration bill; laud grant forfeiture hills: bill relating to lottery advertise- ments passing through the mails; bills to qnifctjand titles; tieMoiaes laudgraufcbill bill authorizing suits against the ITr.1' Slates; bills tor the adjudication of psii land claims in certain states and terrltor ifs; Mil for the monument to colored soldiers; Francis's resolution; bjll to re imbnrfe Virginia and other states iu ttieir cxpenres in the war of ISI2, and the niter Dtitionsl copyright bill.

Brown is highly displeased over the refusal of the state department. He is whetting; a knife on the sole of his boot, and it is expected he will endeavor bv icransofa speech in the Senate on Monday, to take a few scalps. He is said to have a deal of spicy information furnished by W inisttr Jackson, and that some of the rea- fcns for Jackson's resignation will in this way probably be made public.

QUITE A BIGAMIST. How THE HOAR rilLL. MIKOPJTY BEl'ORT. WASHINGTON, February minority report prepared by Senator George, and signed by all the Democratic members the senate committee on judiciary, upon the bill, to provide inquests uncfer na- tional declares it to be the opin- ion of-signers that that measure is rmwar- i.'anted. by the constitution, and that its pas- sage would be a grave and serious nsnrpu tion by Congress reserved to the states. The report discusses at great leagtli the lations of the general to the state govern- ment, and the rights reserved to each under the constitution. Congress, it declares, cia pass no lawtipon the subject of personal JOEfliets between rrivate individuals ferent races and personal wrongs oarpe- ratedbv one between persons of different political parties, or vrongs done by one party man on another because of opinions which the injured party may era ertain or express. The authors of this bill, t says, have not been backward in assert- Eg power in Congress over subjects cognate o those mentioned in Lhis bill, independent, f any support which they ma." have given o many acts of Congress which may have een decided by the Su- ireme Court. They have introduced bills with decisions in their ases which contained associations of xtremest power over subjects. It is defense uf the constitutionality of Ibis bill, say the minority, that it assnmos no jurisdiction, no power over persona to puni-sh or restrain thain, butsimpiy directs the right to make inquisition concerning crfmes coiomtttea in a state, and wbos? trial and punishment are solely in her jurisdiction. The question for decision is, ins Conprees power to pass the bill? Cer- tainly. The power is not among those ex pressly conferred in the constitution. If it were claimed as incidental power, then its advocates must point out the express power lor carrying out which this bill wfts necessary. This could not be done.
