Tits Wire or M. Maass, the celebrated French
banker, is said to be a woman of unusual, abil
ity. A correspondent, after alluding to the
decision of the Court of Caseation to give Mires
a new trial, writes :
" It is told by the friends of Mires that his
wife, who has suffered intensely during the last
twelve months' ' went; the last day of the pro
ceedings, from the Court to - the Mazes Prison,
provided with an order to see her husband. She
*didnot, however, enter, but sent .a messenger
back to the CJurt de 'Cessation, who was
charged to bring her word as to what judg
ment might be given. In the meantime she
walked rapidly up and down before the prison,
occasionally stopping i to look into every quickly
approaching voiture to see whether it contained
the bearer of the President's decision or not.
After waiting for nearly three hours in a state
of agonizing suspense, the messenger at last
appeared, and, recognizing Madame Mires in
tire distance, waved his hat to her, but she be
came quite stupefiedipd motionless as a statue,
till the bearer of theod news got out, and
taking both her hands cried, The judgment
has been quashed and a new trial ordered !'
Madsrue Mires, if this anecdote be not exag
gerated, fainted on hearing the joyful tidings,
and became so ill that she could not, till the
effects of the strong reaction from which she
suffered calmed down, go in to congratulate her
&sant, the London Ames man, if we may
believe the Washington correspondent of the
Augsburg Gazette, eats his own words. The
correspondent writes :
"When I remarked to Mr. Russel that he had
fallen into some disfavor here on account of his
description of Bull's Run, he explained to me
the circumstance under which he had written
the letter. He arrived, he told me, on the
ground only 'when the battle was already over,
and he fell into the midst of the rout. This,
therefore, remained especially impressed upon
his memory, and he wrote off his letter imme
diately after his return to his quarters, and af
ter a ride of some fifty English miles ; and he
had to despatch the letter without reading it
"over. He admitted that he himself was surpris
ed at much Which appeared in the letter when it ar
rived out here six weeks after."

Mr. HAnars offered an amendment that, in
law, shall not be so construed as to require
any witness to testify to any fact which would
tend to criminate him. Lost yeas 19 ;
The bill was then passed.
Mr. WADE, from the special committee on
the conduct of the war, reported a bilLauthor
izing the President to take possession of cer
tain railroads and telegraph lines. Referred.
The case of Senator Bright was then taken
up. . .
Mr. DAVIS, (Ky.,) said in regard to the Sena
tor from Indiana, if he understood his coarse,
he had always opposed any measure to coerce
the rebellious States and bring back peace to
the Union. If the President had pursued such
a course and refused to do anything to reduce
rebellion he would have been liable to Im
peachment, and shall a Senator pursue the
same course and not be liable to expulsion.
He (Mr. Davis) depicted the rebellion as a
stupendous wickedness, and would give the
President every power to crush it out forever.
Suppose the whole Government had taken the
same course as the Senator from Indiana. The
Union would have been in ruins to-day, and
the experiment of self government destroyed.
He did not understand that the Senator from
Indiana had ever shown any sympathy with
the Government in its life or death struggle,
but had voted against all measures to subdue
He (Mr. Davis) then referred to the course of
the States which had seceded contending that
there was no cause for secession. He consider
ed it a great mistake that Old Hickory was not
allowed to go on and hang all traitors from
South Carolina in 1832.
He (Mr. Davis, knew that there were warrants
for treason issued against the three principal
traitors and at the very first gun from Charles
ton old Hickory would have seized' these trai
tors and hung them, but now the conspiracy of
thirty years had broken out in a stupendous
rebellion, and there are many people in the
south to-day who would like to have their old
enemy England reign over them. Bather than
such a thing should happen we would prefer to
see the whole American country sunk to the
botto m of the ocean.
In conclusion he argued, that the Senate had
the right to expel any member whose conduct
in any way unfitted him for duty, and any
Senator who avows himself opposed to the co
ercion of traitors, and who is not willing to
give the government a single man or gun to
subdue the rebellion, was evidently unfitted
as a Senator. Without concluding, Mr. Davis
gave way, and
On motion of Mr. Wens, the Senate went
into executive session. Adjourned.

Mr. SPAULDING, (N. Y.,) from the Commit

the funding of the floating debt of the United
States. The bill was made the special order on
The House in committee of the whole on the
state of the Union, resumed the consideration
of the bill making appropriations for execu
tive, legislative and judicial expenses.
Mr. DivEN made a speech on the state of the
country, and against general emancipation.
Mr. &awns (Pa.) remarked that this was
not an accidental rebellion.. It had been pre
meditated for years past, and lAtd gradually
grown up. It would be / better to lay the
whole south waste than suffer the entire na
tion to be murdered. Better to people that
section with a new race of freemen, than
suffer the rebellion to triumph. The senti
ment of the north was that there should be no
cessation of hostilities till the rebels lay down
their arms and submit to the authority of the
General Government. There cannot be two
Governments within the limits of the United
States. The war will not end till our Govern
ment shall more fully comprehend the magni
tude of the contest, and discover that this is
an internecine war in which one party or the
other must be reduced. He repeated that this
war cannot be ended so long as it is conducted
on present principles.
Mr. F. A. Coznnnw offerred an amendment,
which was adopted, that nothing in this bill
shall be construed as in any manner impairing
the right to reduce the compensation of any
officer of the Government, or abolish any ex
isting office: He mentioned the fact that the
joint commission on reducing the civil, mili
tary and naval expenses of the Government,
had reported three several bills with this ob
ject. The committee then rose, and the, House
