Final Passage otehe• Treasury Note Bills
Wesimenort, Feb. 24.
The joint resolution in relation to certain
railroads in klissoUri was amended and passed.
Mr. FRBSIOIDIN Oubmitted a report from the
Committee of ference on the disagreeing
-votes of the two oases on the bill to author
ize the issue of led States notes, and for the
redemption or funding thereof, and for funding
the floating debtof the United States. The
committee recommend that the Senate recede
from their second, fourth, and fifth amend
ments, by which the old notes now out were
retained, instead of issuing new ones to the
whole amount of one hundred and fifty million
dollars ; that the House recede from their disa
greement to the ninth and fourteenth amend
meate of the Senate, by which the notes are
made redeemable at the pleasure of the Gov
ernment after five years, and payable in twenty
years; that the House • recede from their
amendments to the eighteenth amendment of
the Senate. .
The Senate amendment authorised the de
posit of these notes for net less than thirty
dap, in sums, of not less than $lOO, with any
of the Assistant Treasurers of the United
States, for which deposit certificates were to be
issued bearing five percent. interest; the inter n
est to cease at the pleasure of the Secretary of
the Treasuty, and the aggregate of the deposits
not to exceed $26,0000,000. The House amend
ment, to the Senate amendment (from which
they recede) was to insert the words "or coin,"
so as to allow deposits to be made in notes or
coin, and to strike out the five per cent interest
and insert "at the rate which the Secretary of
the Treasury may from time to time prescribe,
not exceeding six per cent. per annum."
The Committee on Conference also recom
mend that the Senate recede from so much of
their tenth amendment as proposes to insert the
words in lien of words stricken out, and that
the House agree to the amendment as so modi
fied. The tenth amendment of the Senate was
the amendment striking out of the provisions
authorising the Secretary of the Treasury to
issue a portion of the bonds at seven per cent.
interest, pafable in five years, and inserting
bends bearing seven three-tenths per cent. in
terest, payable in two years, and the effect of
the Committee's agreement is to strike out
The Committee of Conference also recom
mended that the House recede from its disa
greement to the Senate's nineteenth amend
ment and agree to the same with the following
amendments: After the word "good," in the
second line, strike out the words "the proceeds
of the sale of the public lands and the proceeds
of id I property seized and sold under the laws
bf the United States as the property of rebels,"
and insert the words, "shall be paid in coin
and;"' and after the word "taxes," in the first
section of the twenty-first line,lnsert "inter
nal;" and after the word "dutis," in the same
line, strike out the word "imposts," and after
the word "States," in the twenty-third line,
insert "except duties or imports;" and in line
thirty, after word "interest,' insert the words
"and duties on imports." The effect of these
alterations is to m.ke the duties on imports
payable in coin, and to pledge them specifically
for the payment ot. the interest on the notes
and bait's, and for the purpose of raising a
fund to,redeem the principal, end striking out
of the Senate amendment the pledge of the
Public lands and the proceeds of the property
seized as `the property of rebels.

Mr. &Ant, (M 0.,) called up Senate bill to
reduce the number of calvary regiments.

such regiments is seventy-eight, the organisa

sides arms for all of them cannot be conve
niently procured. Complete regiments can be
made up by the pending bill. Some of the
enlisted men do not know how to ride, and
perhaps never will learn. The government
would save about one-fourth of the present ex
penditures by the passage of this meaSure.—
The expense of maintaining a single regiment
is a million dollars per year.
