The Government Contract Investigating
DISCOVERY 0 F FRAUDS
EXCHANGE OF PRISONERS,
WASHINGTON, Jan. 16
The Government Contract Investigating com
mittee are now engrossed upon the subject of
alleged frauds in this vicinity. They discover
that the same horses have been twice sold
to the government. Superintendents and in
spectirs being 'oribed to certify horses, some
times selling them to private individuals.
That the enormous amounts paid by the War
department for transportation induce strong
competition among railroad companies, so that
many colonels in the West, moving their regi
ments east, have received each from $l5OO to
to $2,600 bonus, that some sutlers are making
$3OOO profit per month ; that nearly all the
sutlers south of the Potomac sell liquor with
the knowledge of the officers ; that it is suing
gled in boxes marked Government and hospital
stores, or packed in barrels and marked beef.
Major Jordan, of the Brooklyn Fourteenth,
having been appointed Lieutenant-Colonel of
the Tenth Legion, enables Representative Van
Wyck, who is its Colonel, to give ranch of hie
time to the business of the investigation com
mittee, which will soon proceed to the exami
nation of the contracts for wintered, disabled
and sick horses, as proposed by Representative
McPherson's recent resolution.
So far about 1,000 prisoners on each side
have been exchanged, nearly,soo of whom
are connected with the army of the Potomac.
The system of exchanges inaugurated by our
Government is fully reciprocated by the rebe!
The Military Committee in the Senate have,
today, reported a bill for converting a large

There were only two votes in the Senate yes

STRIKE OF THE EMPLOYEES OF THE
PHILADELPHIA NAVY YARD.
PIULADELPHIA, Jan. 16
The workingmen of the navy yard in this
city struck to-day, refusing to accept the new
regulations reducing the wages and extending
the time of labor and resolved to communi
cate with their fellow-workmen in New York,
Boston and Washington, requesting their active
co-operation in urging upon Congress the repeal
of the eighth section of the act of December,
1861, making these changes.
OHIO BANK SUSPENSION LAW
One of the conditions of the bank suspension
law is that banks resume fifteen days after
New York banks do.
A YANKEE TRICK IN MISSOURI.—The follow
ing is told of Major Hovey, of the 24th Indiana
regiment, in connection with Gen. Pope's recent
exploit in Missouri :
While at some point near Clinton, Major
Hovey, took 100 men, put them in wagons, so
as to hide them from view, and he putting a
few stragglers to walk, as if guarding the train,
he started out. Secession, shot-guns in hand,
hiding in the brush, saw the cortege, and sup
posing it a Federal wagon train, poorly guard
ed, and hence an easy as well as a legitimate
prize. Reasoning thus, Secession walked from
the brush, presented its shot gun and demand
ed a surrender--which demand was instantly
met by fifty men rising from the wagons, pre
senting a row of glittering muskets,'and re
questing a similar favor of astonished and now
mortified Secession. Secession generally com
plied, and worked off its ill-humor by cursing
such "mean Yankee" tricks, unknown to all
honorable warfare and unworthy all chivalrous
hearts. In this way many a petulent rebel was
confounded, and in two cases, where light was
preferred rather than surrender, the sons of
chivalry were made to bite the dust.
A BIT of dog philosophy. Too many West
Pointers point the wrong game. They are
sharp enough in scenting out hostility to sla
very, but when that divine institution comes
in peril, they become setters and "tarriers."
Tn faithful, at Great Salt Lake City have
held a meeting for the purpose of taking the
necestary step for the admission of Utah as a
state of the Union.
CONCLUSION OP YNSTEEDAY'S pROCEEDLNGS.]
On motion of Mr. WIMON, the bill in relation
to the arrest of persons claimed to beheld to ser
vice or labor by officers of the military or na
val service of the United States was taken up.
The bill provi.les that any officer arresting such
person, be discharged from the service.
Mr. CO LAGER, (Vt.) offered an amendment
as a substitute that no officer of the army or
navy, militia or volunteers, shall assume to
exercise any authority to arrest, detain, hold
or control any person on account of such being
held to service, and any officer so offending
shall be dismissed from the service. Agreed to.
Mr. SAULSBERRY, (Del.,) offered an amend
ment as a new section : Nor shall any soldier
or officer under like penalty, any way entice,
decoy or retain any such person from his mas
ter or owner. He said he thought that the
officer or soldier of the United States ought to
have nothing to do with the question at all,
Mr. RICE, (Minn.,) moved to add after the
words "master or owner," the words "who may
be a loyal citizen of the States." Agreed to.
Mr. Wliscss opposed the amendment. He said
he was, opposed to any kind of justification of
slavery; what he wanted was to prevent the
present officers from returning slaves ; some offi
cers had already disgraced the service in that
way and God willing, if he (Wilson) had the
power, he meant to prevent their confirmation
by the San ite.
The morning hour having expired, the un
finished business of yesterday came up, being
the contested seat of the Senator from Kansas.
The question being on the resolution of Mr.
CLARK to strike out the word " not " in the
resolution of the Committee on the Judiciary,
that Mr. LAVE be " not " entitled to a seat.
Mr. MCDOUGAL, (Cal.,) opposed the amend
ment and contended that the President had
authority, under the power to suppress insur
rection, to appoint Mr. Lane a Brigadier. He
thought the Senator from Kansas was attempt
ing to exercise military and legislative power
at the same time, and in fact had no right to
his seat in the Senate.
Mr. LANE (Kansas) said he had refused to ac
cept the office on the 22d of July. He referred
to the contest in Kansas. with Mr. Stanton, for
the Senate, and said that four days after he
was elected, the Governor whom he had over
thrown, and the contestant whom he had
beaten, declared his seat vacant.
Mr. WRIGHT, (Ind.,) thought the question
was purely a legal one. The Presiden' having
appointed him to an office which was not crea
ted, the Senator from Kansas could not ac
cept it and therefore did not vacate his seat in
the Senate. The discussion was continued by
Messrs. Lane, Stanton, Clark awl Foster.
The vote being taken on 14. Clark's motion
to strike out the word "not," it was agreedito:
yeas 24, nays 16.
The Senate then went into executive session
and subsequently adjourned.
After a debate of several hours, the House ad
ourned with the understanding that the ques
ion be taken up to-morrow at one o'clock.
MORE REBEL TESTIMONY AS TO THE BLOCKADE.-
Rebel testimony to the rigorous , fficiency of the
blockade of the Southern coast accumulates
constantly. The latest is from the Memphis
Appeal, of the 3d instant, wnich declares that
" the risk of running the blockade at present
is too great, and comparatively but few are
willing to encounter the losses that are so apt
to follow the experiment." It is understood
that the rebel authorities have gone to the
trouble to prepare a formidable schedule of
skiffs, shallops and scows claimed to have eva
ded the vigilance of our cruisers, which they
intend laying on the tables of the members of
the French and English Parliaments against
their approaching session, in the hope ot per
suading those Governments to raise the block
' ade. If evidence is to be offered on this score,
it will not be very hard to offset the fraudulent
list by an accumulated series of testimonials as
to its efficiency from the Southern journals
themselves—testimonials reluctantly wrung
from those who have the best means of know
ing its extraordinary rigor.
ANOTHER distinguished soldier of foreign birth
has, as the letter of Henri Martin, the French
historian, introducing him to Senator Sumner
phrases it, " put his sword at the service of
American Anti-Slavery." Cul. Clusenet served
eighteen years in the French Chasseurs on foot,
rising to the rank of Colonel. Subsequently,
he went to Italy, and served under Garibaldi
at Naples. Beside introductions from Mr.
Marsh, our Minister at Turin, he brings an au
tograph from Garibaldi to Gen. McClellan, com
mending his companion in arms to his favora
ble attention, and expressing the hope that he
will find a place for him to assist in organizing
his "immense army." Col. Clusene t, unfor
tunately, cannot speak a word of English.

MATTERS IN ST. LOUIS.—The citizens of St.
Louis have all been classified, and their names
registered in four classes—those who are out
and-out for the Union, those who are for it
with a reservation, those who are Secessionists,
those who keep still and say nothing. At each
hotel is a deputy, who furnishes passes to cor
respondents. Citizens must go directly to the
Marshal's office, where some of them rind it a
difficult matter to obtain a pass. More than
one hundred firms joined the Union Mer
chant's Exchange on the first day that the re
gistry books were opened.

Wilson's Creek, and fought like a Turk. On
returning home he was offered a commission—
any he might choose in a regiment. But his
reply was, "D—n your commission ; all I want ie
a gun." That's the kind of a man for you.
