Mr. SUMNER offered a resolution di.
meting the Committee on the District of

Mr. MORTON objected to the 'lmmedi
ate consideration,
Mr. SUMNER Said If the occasion (or
the resolution was known there would
be no erjection. A surgeon who had
been breveted Colonel for services in the
Union cause, was now a practicing phy.
stelae in Washington, and he and
another member of his pretension had,
upon making application to the Medical
BedMy In the District of Columbia, been
black balled. Though they were colored
Men, the effect of that act was to exclude
them from the co-operation and counsel
with members of that Society in Wash.
ington, and thereby inflict a penalty
upon their patients. A rule of the Raci
ng, referred to, prohibited the consulta
tion or • emaciation by the members
thereof with any resident practitioneer
not a member. Thus were them colored
mactitioneerestmt qut from theordleary
egiportunitim of consulting with their
profentional brethren on Important eases
conduit before them. Their race was
degraded by the act, and the procession
which- was guilty of such astrociam
degraded itself. The medical profession
of Washington must take notice that this
outrage would not he allowed tecontinue
without a remedy if the speaker could
obtain it through the action of Congress.
Mr. TATIER3ON inquired whether
it was posalblo to apply the necessary
remedy through the medium of Con.
greesional action. Would not admissions
to the , medical'eonsultathms of this so
ciety be Agulated by the society net
withstanding any remedial &co n by
Congress, as proposed ?
Mr. SUMNER said that by re ing
' the existhgeharter of this Sod en
Mu/Dadra a new Baciety founded on or.
publican principles, which should re.
mire colored men into Its fraternity, the
object desired might be obtained. This
same battle bad been fought, gage by
stage. and the victory had been epprov
°dot by stages. The present question
was but one additional feature of the
Struggle for principle.
Mr. PATTERSON expressed his cor
dial approbation of a proposition of the
ehante,er of that proposed. At first he
supposed this one might not be practical,
nor attain the abject meat
Mr. MORTON then withdrew his ob
jection to the resolution, inasmuch as It
was simply a direction to the Committee,
sad would not commit the Senate to any
action to the premises.

Mr. JUDD inqadred whether, uraer
the rule organising the Committee on
Bankingt, tole bill did not necessarily
go to that Committee.
The SPEAKER replied that he had
no power over the House in its votes ro.
fairing bile. This bill might, by a vote
of the House, be cent to the Committee
on Public Builducga If the Chair were
to give Its views on the applicability of
the rule, it would be that the bill should
go to the Committee on flanking; but It
was not within the province of the Chair
to make the ruling.
Mr. INGERSOLL said if the proposed
reference were to occasion debate he
should withdraw it for the pretant.
The bill was accordingly withdrawn.
The Houle then went into Commit
tee of the Whole, Mr. Dawes in the
chair, and resumed the consideration of

as to the most aconorhical manner of
taking the census, Mr Butler, of Mewl
chtufetta, contending that the work could
be beat and moat appropriately per•
formed by the oflloors of the internal •
Revenue, and Mr. Garfield holding the
ground that the small economy In this ,
matter would be arfustefulnexa.

Mr. SCHOFIELD meriting on the

ridiculing the Idea of fairs economy'in
this matter, said he Would like hie col
league to road his own speeches, deliver

Mr. KELLY esked his colleague to

Mr. MAYNARD argued that It was
not to be expected that with the rate of
compensation prattled for en Umeratent,
(four donate %dub for ale day.), com
peted men could be procured, or that
anything like a complete comma would
betaken by theta.
Mr. STOKES, Chairman of the Census
Committee, replied to Mr. Maynard's
objection, and eXpreshed his conviction
that competent men amid be got for four
dullara per day, which was all the mew.
bets of the Tennessee Leglinalttre re
! calved.
Mr. JUDD argued on the great Import
once of the etatistimil infbrinallon to be
obtained by the heehaw being taken, not
! only by the Legiolotive Department of
the ountry, bat for the natlonot credit
ors abroad, and expressed the Pediment
that no ideas of economy should be Per
' mltted to Intervene as an clientele to a
perfect and complete comma.
Mr. FAIRFIELD also replied to the
argument in Myer of employing the In
terne] Revenue °Meets to take the con
cue, taking the ground that the tax gath
erer was en officer odious to the people,
who should be thoroughly convinced
that the °ensue had 110 connection what.
ever with taxation. The whole coat of
taking the °amine of IS 0, exclusive of
printing and publishing, woe II 310,000,
of which 6C6,000 was for the payment of
the Anistant Marshal, who did the work
which enumerators would have to do.
Mr. ALLISON, a member of the
Cent us Committee, also argued against
the amendment offered by Mr. Butler.
Mr. BUTLEB, said his plan did not
prof 'INN to Interfere with the Buttes of
the l'oummetioner of lowest R11V1.111U , ..
but to place the mamma' s for this purpose
under the Census :••ttliwrlntendettt
M. ALT.ION remarked that then the
proposition was still more of jectionable,
because it would place the assessors and
assistant assessors under two selpsrate
and distinct Jurisdictions, which would
make rowfuatelu worse confounded. It
I would be fropowalble for them to act
under two distinct and separate depart
ments af,theeoverminent. He would be
very glad if the expenee of taking the.,
census could Le reduced, but the pri•
mary and great °Ejection to the arntem
proposed by the gentleman from Mast.
chtlartla woo that n w Id interfere with
the legitimate hutnstees of the Internal
Revenue Department.
Mr. WOOD thought the amendment
offered. was not without sume' merit,
and said late - firiff — filthfillie "toff been'
to favor anything which would nit
atriet the patronage of the Admlnlatra•
Bon, but considering the vast interest at
stake, and knowing the whets value of
the census depended on its precision and
accuracy, be would not allow any feeling
of a partisan character to Interfere with it.
Mr. J &NUE ES agreed that there wan
something of value in each of the tend
ing preuwietions, and that while the As
sensors should not be employed to take
the enumeration, the statistical informs
Bun possessed by the Internal Revenue
Bureau, should be utilized for the pur
pose of-the census.
Mr. BUTLER clotted the debate by an
argument in support of Ida amendment.
Ile claimed that under it there would be
eMciency, greater promptitude, greater
accuracy, and greater economy. The
gentleman front New York, Mr. Wood,
had informed the Commissioner that the !
census of lafls, In his State, made by
the itepublican party, had been entirely a
fraud. The coroner,' tottuff would seem
u, ha, that there should be no census
taken at all. There might be an Idiewyn
cracy about New York that nothing
could be done there which was not s
fraud in some wey or form; but he trust
ed there could be an honest census
taken. He admitted there wan great
danger that nothing could be found c
inworkaut the
comma, about gold speculations, or obout
schemes of every sort. It seems to be
one living mass of corruption and fraud,
of which the gentleman (Mr. Wood) wan
a representative. Laughter.)
Mr. DAVIS asked Mr. Butler whether
he meant the State or city?
Mr. IiCTI.Eit —The city always, Mr.
Mr. DAVIS—Then I hove nothing to
Mr. BUTLER—I thought not. ( Laugh
Mr. WOOD—I teak the gentleman
whether Me opinion of New York one

gallon to which he has been subjected
there? (Laughter.)
Mr. BUTLER—Not at all, sir; I have
never yet been able to get a , ase (or trial
in New York. I raneet a good deal of
fraud when I do.'
In further criticism of the detail,
of the bill, Mr. Butler said he
wanted to know the datintics of railroad
transportation, of the express hominess,
and of the telegraph bualoee•, because he
looked forward to the time within the
next ten years, when the country would
have to grapple with three great inter
eats, and take the ountrol of them.
The debate being closed, the qusation

and It was rejected. Ayes, G;—nays not

ment, and peace and prosperity seemed
to have followed him to his new home
among stranger. But, alas! he knew
not what were the imrposee of an irusern

in death. The loving wife, after again
becoming a mother, was also stricken
with disease, and yesterday her spirit
tied to join that of her husband in a bet

A brother of Mr. Watte arrived yester
day. a short time previous to the death of
hie minter In-law, and upon his aaauring

her eyes and died In peace.
We may add that the deceased, who

attention from Bishop Kerfoot, who was
conetant In miniateriug to their want.,
temporal and spiritual, in which he was
efficiently anointed by the realdenta In
the neighborhood.
The brother will take the bodies to
