from a needle to a locomotive, including a tax
for thirty-one to ninety per cent. on wood

are tributes:levied on agriculture and labor by
capital. Sucl&taxes will alienate the west, even
as it has the south. He was opposed to
this specific mode of taxation. The poor
man who buys Rio coffee at fifteen cents
will pay the tax of five cents, while the rich
man pays no more tax on his coffee at thirty
cents. So with tea ; it ranges from twenty
cents to one dollar in price, and the rich and
poor pay the, same. The poor man who buys
his cheap tea, pays as much tax by this bill as
the rich man who buys his dear tea. He would
not add to our burden by such taxes, until
equality of taxation was secured by a repeal of
the infamous Morrill tariff.
MT. MORRILL (Vt.) said he would vote for the

Mr. CONICLUM submitted some interesting

Mr. Burtwr (Ky.) expressed astonishment
that the gentlemen who voted for every mea
sure of the administration involving the ex
penditure of hundreds should now shed crocho
dile tears because men who are fighting the
battles of their country are to be taxed on tea
and coffee and sugar. This was a logical se
quence of the acts of this Congress. Gentl
emen who are willing to bankrupt the treasury
ought to be willing to foot the bills.
Mr. Srr.vmrs, (Pa.) after remarking that the
House was running into buncome, moved that
the Committee rise, in order to terminate the
debate. In half a minute this was agreed to.
Mr. PENDLETON, (0.) offered an amendment
to reduce the duty on iron, but it was rejected.
Mr. WARD, (N. Y.) ineffectually endeavored
to amend that the bill should take effect from/
the Ist of September, instead of immediately,
but without concluding action on the bill the
Mr. VALLANDIGLIAId (0.) gave notice of a bill

to secure to the people the right to keep and

LATER NEWS FROM W ABRLYGTON.
Over Fifty Thousand Troops on the
REPORTED ABANDONMENT OF FAIRFAX
The Star of this afternoon says, in relation to
the army under commany of Gen. M'Dowel :
"The column on the extreme right is command
ed by Gen. Hunter, the right centre column by
Gen.. Tyler, that consists of the following ex
cellent troops—the Second Maine, the First,
Second and Third Connecticut, under Col. Keys,
Second New York, and the First and Second
Ohio, Brig. Gen. Scluaeck, the Thirteenth, Sixty
ninth and Seventy-ninth New York, and the
First, Wisconsin, under Col. Corcoran, with
probably Sherman's light battery of six pieces
of the New York Eighth, and a detachment of
United States cavalry under Capt. Harrison and
Lieut. Tompkins. Gen. Tyler's column bivou
acked lasi night in and around Vienna, four
and a half miles from Fairfax Court House.
Col. Miles, United States army, commands
the left centre column, and among other crack
troops has more than 26,000 regulars. He prob
ably moved up by way of Little river turnpike
yesterday afternoon to a point within five miles
of the Court - house, if not nearer. A position
of the troops forming his column was two hours
in passing Bally's cross roads yesterday after-
Anon to the intersection of the Columbia with
the Little river turnpike.
Col. Heintzleman commands the column on
the extreme left. This is composed of the New
York Fire Zouaves, the Michigan and other
very fine troopS, including United States cav
alry and light artillery. Its route is via the
Orange and Alexandria Railroad and the coun
try road in that vicinity. A portion of it
doubtless rested at Springfield station last night.
Fella. Church was also occupied last night by a
portion of Gen. Tyler's rear.
There must be at least 50,000 troops actually
on the march under Gen. McDowell, exclusive
of his reserve still resting in and around his
late eneampment. _
From nightfall last night the city was full of
rumors that Gen. Beauregard had abandoned
Fairfax Court House without firing a gun, but
no such information of a reliable character had
reached the War Department up to 11 o'clock,
A. Id., to-day . though that course on his part is
not unlooked for.
The division of Col. Hunter proceeded, doubt
by the Georgetown and Leesburg turnpike
`via :Langley. to the neighborhood of Vienna,
and there formed a junction with Gen Tyler
this Morning. The march of this grand column
of some 25,Q00 men started before daybreak
this aiorning. - -

The Chambersburg Repository and transcript,
received to-day, contains the following account
of the march of our troops from Martinsburg,
their rout of the rebels at Bunker Hill, and pur
suit of the retreating enemy toward Winchester.
It is generally supposed that Gen. Patterson
reached Winchester last evening, and that Gen.
Johnsou,fearing to make a stand, retreated in the
direction of Strawsburg, with a view of taking
a position commanding the railroad and moun
tain pass to Manasses Junction. If so, in the
meantime General McClellan's victorious army
will have cleared Western Virginia of the rebel
bands, whose remnants retreating through the
mountains will join Johnson. In that event
McClellan, striking boldly through the moues
tains, could take position at Staunton so as to
threaten at the same time the rear of Johnson's
army, the pass at Manassas Gap, and the safety
of Richmond. The following is the article from
the Chambersburg paper above referred to :
on Monday morning last General Patterson's
column took its departure from Martinsburg.
The troops commenced moving about three
o'clock in the morning, and by nine o'clock the
last of the column was on the march. There
was only one regiment remaining in Martins
burg. When the head of the column reached
Bunker Hill it was attacked by the secession
ists and a pretty sharp skirmish took place.
Doubleday's battery fired a few shots into them
when they, as usual, retreated in the direction
of Winchester. Gen. Patterson encamped for
the night at Bunker Hill and had his head
quarters near the run, at that place. He
will move on in the morning and expects
to fight his way through to Winchester
before sun-down. During the skirmish at
Bunker Hill, we learn that a number of horses
were killed, but cannot ascertain.anr. further
' u s conin thewillies of the en
gagement, di •er an a ntritharfor
treated. Gen. Patterson has a fighting force
under him of about 35,000 men and will
receive additional reinforcements on the
march. Before leaving Martinsburb, he
was joined by an Indiana Regiment
that marched down the national turnpike
to Williamsport. A regiment from
Wisconsin also passed over the Franklin
Railroad on yesterday (Tuesday) morning to
join Patterson. It is, we believe, the intention
to unite with M'Clellan's forces as soon as they
reach Winchester, and then push on to-Manas
sas Junction. Under the present aspect of af
fairs we need not look this week for the return
of the three months volunteers. There is
now a prospect of some fighting, and they are
all anxious to see a battle, and will remain, of
their own accord, for the glory of prrticipating
in a fight. When the order was given on Sun
day night to pack up and be ready to march,
the three months volunteers were under the
impression that it was "homeward bound,"
and did not know the contrary until ordered to
head in the direction of Winchester. Though
anxious to return to their homes they were all
agreeably disappointed, and marched off in fine
The confederate army under Gen. Johnston,
so far as we are able to find out from estimates
made by the rebels themselves, numbers about
26,000. After the retreat from Harper's Ferry
Gen. Beauregard sent Johnston about 10,000
reinforcements. Notwithstanding this large
army he will not likely attack Patterson's col
umn while there is danger of being flanked by
McClellan. It is now confidently stated, by
those who pretend to know, that there will be
no fight at Winchester.
