WASHINGTON, Dec. 21, isos, TfeP Dclwvte in the House on the Georgia Re* construction Bill. ·Hie fiebate on Uie Georgia bill was resumed in tie Boose this morning immediately alter tne reading ot ttie journal, too democrats leading off. Tne most soticeaWc gpeecbes were those or Voorliees, ol IndJr ana, and Cox, or New Yort. Tne lartsr was listened to witn -$3«at Interest by bota Eldes or the House, and at the close or his remarKs was warmly complimented upon tbe soundness of bis argument and Bis commanding delivery. While the democrats ^rere speaking Governor Bullock, or Georgia, seemed to be bnsfly engaged among: tne republicans, .prompting and advising them what to do. Sometimes he would be talking te BnUer, then to some or ciie southern members. Occasionally te would be standing beside Speaker Blame, whispering and consulting with him. ' Bullock's conspicuous lobbiing on the floor or tjie House was the subject or general xemark, even among republicans. Some democrats remarked thai the title or the bill would be more ^erman to its subject matter, certainly to its object, IT it read "A bill to make Burns Bullocc United States Senator from Georgia and to prevent him from being impeached By the Legislature or that State." Now that the bill is through, several re- DnWicans do not hesitate to denounce the conduct or Bullock as indecetit, both on the fioor or the Senate and in the House. Jndge Bingham, of Ohio. rollowed Cox in the debate, and delivered a speech which demoralized the republicans to a certain extent and encouraged the democrats. Bingham mercilessly exposed what he termed the monstrous character or the bill, and announced with some reeling WS determination to vote against it. That part of Bmgham's speech wherein he assertefl that a tne had crept into the President's Message relating to imposing the test oath on the memoers ol the Georgia Legislature, wnicn the President never intended should be tnere, created quite a sensation all over the House, and when Mr. Biwr- liam had concluded members flocked around him to ascertain whether he spoKe by authority or the President. To all Inquiries he merely renlied, "I stand By what I said and I Know whereof I affirm." "Wnether he learned this ract in conversation with the President or whether it is merely a surmise ou Ms part 5s not known. Sutler, in closing the debate, endeavored to drive Bingham into a position ·wnere it wxraid be necessary ror him to give Ills authority ror the statement, but the latter longht shy or mat and Butler could draw nothing forth but a reiteration of tlie assertion. Perhaps the most effective part or Biug- larc'BB speech was thai wherein he snowed thai the provisions or the bill exalted Governor Bullock above all the power m the land and at the same tune gave no guarantee that he would execute the bill then about to be passed ror his special benefit. This was hot shot in BnllocK's camp, and from his Tisnal conspicuous occupation or going around from one member's beat to another he toot himself off to the cloak room and Kept under cover during the remainder ol Bingliam's speech, so damaging was Bingham's argument on this nolut tnat ai uic suggestion of some republicans Bullock sat down and wrote a letter addressed to General Butler, promising IT tbe bill passed to call tne Legislature together on the 12th of January. This is the letter reail by Butler as part or his remarks. The vote on Emc- Bam's motion to postpone was not as heavy as was expected, only lour republicans voting for It witn the democrats. It was regarded as a party measure -And very rcw republicans were willing to vote ·against it. Tbe Senate Debate in Secret Session. It is reliaoly ascertained that yesterday's debate In secret session upon tue resolutions asking tne President for the recommendations on which the Circuit Court Judges were nominated, was conducted in a spirit altogether friendly to the President. Nominations by the President. The Presiaent sent to the Senate to-day tne rollow- mg nominations:-- James H. Lomis, to be assessor or internal revenue Tor the Twenty -ninth district or Sew York; Samuel Houston, to be supervising in- epector of steamboats for the Sixth district; Stephen Thomas, to be pension agent at St. Johnsburg, Vt,; John li Barstow, to be pension agent at Rutland, Vt. ; "William B.

The nomination of Judge Hoar, ror Associate Justice or the Supreme Court of the United States, lias not been considered in executive session. The temper or the Senate is not ravorable to the confirmation. Meeting of Senate Committees. The Finance Committee or the Senate met to-day and considered various propositions, but arrived at no conclusion ou anything. A large amount of ·business was distributed among tne different mem- tiers or the committee to receive their special attention. The committee conversed at some length on the resumption or specie payments and the means to effect that result, bnt came to no conclusion. That portion or the report ol the Secretary of the Treasury in regard to taking in the three and a Jiair per cent certificates, amounting to between Jbrty and fifty millions or dollars, and to issue an equal amount or currency to the Southern banks, 'was considered, bnt no action taken. Tbe wort or de committee is now in such a shape that meetings ·will be held during tne recess or Congress, and will lie attended by most of the members, who will either remain here or, if possible, be here on committee days. The Senate Committee on Political Disabilities met to-day, tne gathering being merely cre- Hminary with a view to reorganizing lor business. It is tue intention of the committee, after the recess, to go to wort on the multitude of names they nave on nand and make one general bill of candidates for legislative pardon, as has already been .practised, and pnt the whole of them through with. cut me necessity of taking up each case.

Extensive Bagsa«e SmasMns on the Kail- roads-- Trunks Broken Open in tbe Cars-The Detectives Failed Again-- A Baroness a. Heavy looser-- §100,000 Stolen. To the omcials «r many of the raaroaos running out of this city the statements about to be given will not be news, but to the masses who patronize the railroads some information may be derived as to what they are likely to be exposed to while travel- ling. Several months ago it was ascertained that trunks containing valuable articles or clothing and jewelry were being broken along the lines or the Kanford and New Haven, tne Erie ana the Sew York Central Railroads and u portion, or the contents stolen. The officers of the roaos, it is said, exerted every effort to discover the autoors or the robberies and the noiuts at which they were perpetrated. M'ueir" investigations were or no avail. Property continued to disappear in o mysterious manner, especially on the Central road, it was discovered, however, that nearly ati the robberies occurred ou night trains between Albany and Suspension Bridge, aad between Troy and Kew York. During toe last two mouths it is said that travellers nave lost more than 5100,000 worth of property on the Central Railroad alone. Kecently the worKing up ot the case has been given to some expert ew York fletcct- tives, who are now engaged in endeavoring to fathom the mystery of the e peculations. It is understood that in most cases tne companies throw the respoosibiUtv of the robberies on the city express companies and assert that their employes are the really guilty parties, but this is by no means clear. The last extensive robbery reported occurred on the 4th of November, between Albany and Niagara. At tnree o'clock in the alternoon the Baron and Baroness Olga Ue Maixrta Fraloff, at present residing at 229 Wast Twenty-third street,»m this city, toos the train from Albany for the Falls, having checked tueir baggage throaga to the.r destination. On receiving K at the Falls irom tne railway company it was discovered tnat an immense quantity ol uostiy laces, most of which has descendea through tbe family to tbe Baroness, aud is valued at a very large amount, had beau stolen irom one of her trunks. the locks of which cud been wrenched off by some thieves who gained access to tue baggitgu car. The company's officers have smce that time devoted ibeir enemy to the iccovery of the property without clfecL. The articles stolen consist in part of three volants (flouncesj, each reu meters long, in all thirty-three yards, lor corsage (waist), similar laces, eleven yards; live and a bait corsage, one-tliinl ol a meter in width; five volants (Oonnces), one-nurd meter wide, flrw-uve yards; for corsage (waist;, one-ouarter meter wide, eleven yurds; two volants (flounces) with tuniquc, twenry- two yaitts; lour ditto similar laces, forty-seven yards, lor mantilla, five and a half yards; two valants (Uouuccsj, twenty-two yards; HTLy- livc yards of laoes of various widths and designs and otucr property, swelling the total to several tliousaud dollars. It is unueistood Uiui me Baron. desponding ol ever recovering ttie property, has applied to the company to reimburse him for lina loss with 110 success, unii consequently he has j'ust offered a reward or 94,000 lor its return, li is likely tuat tins large reward will result m the detection of some of the butfg»*re smashers who travel on the railroads for express purpose ot ronblng pn^sea- gers ani ilieir couimeutent at the Central Police littiuo. where the robbery lias been reported.

SHOCKIKQ DEATS FKOM liYOKorHosiA.-- At fiva o'clock yesterday morning a man named Alexander McDonald, residing in the village or Yardviile, a short distance from this city, diea Irom hydrophobia, having been bitten by a little dog about two weeks since. Tne canine was owned by a negro named Ellas Johnson, was small and handsome and bv no means considered vicious. McDonald took the animal up ou his arms and was taking it home when it bit his hand slightly. TBe man thongnt Homing ol the o-ccurrenc« and took a Orrnk ot water on arriving at Dome, Three days ago he felt thirsty but on being oflered waier he recoiled from the draught with abhorrence, and shortly after was seized with spasms, accompanied with the most writhing agony, which continued till yesterday morning when he succumbed. During his sufferings he occasionally had lucid intervals and conversed quite calmly oil the occurrence, but manifested such a painful horror of l!ie periodical convulsions that he earnestly besoucut the attending physicians to bleed him to aeath. The unfortunate man leaves a wife and fainiiv. The colored boy, Lewis, tue owner or the doc, was also bitten By the animal a few days ago, and tae fate of McDonald has BO paralyzed him with lear that it is apprehended his disordered imagination will super- induce nydrophonial symptoms. The dog has since been killed by Lewis. ATTEMPTED JUMPER Man Attacked for a Prize of §300--The Kuffiuns Try to Tbrow Him in tb£ iJivur. The Ninth precinct, noted for some time for its quietude, last ntclit had its sensation. Officer Liird, about eight o'clock, heard a cry at the foot of West Thirteenth street, and a heavy plash. He hurried to tne pier and found a man struggling In the water. By extraordinary efforts the officer, aided by citizens, rescued the man and conveyed him to the Charles street station house in an almost insensible state. Captain Washburne and his officers immediately gave him some stimulants aud resuscitated him, when he stated that his name was Adam jBamberaer, a tailor by occupation, and worked at the store of Tftomas Wiley, corner of Tenth and Hudson streets--a brother of Captain Wiley, the late candidate for Police Justice or the Ninth district. Ue further stated that at a late hour yesterday afturnoou he drew the sum or $390 rrom tbe Bowery Savings Bank, for the purpose of defraying the expenses of his contemplated marriage, and about dark entered a saloon in Bleecker Btreer, there he became acquainted with two men, with whom he had several drinks, and in whose company be visited several moons. Being in the vicinity «f the. river, and having occasion to retire, ho went behind two' large DoUers, when he was get npon by his companions, wrlpped or hie money and hurled into the river. Wnen taken Into tne station house the man's condition confirmed big story.

Kevins 'street, between Schermerhom and Living- Eton streets, Brooklyn, was the scene or one of the most audacious highway robberies that has ever occurred in that city. The victim was Mr. Daniel M. Sweeny, a broKer, doing business at No. 104 Nassau street, Kew York, who resides at No. 20 Kevins, in the rormer city. It appears that Mr. Sweeny waa on his way home, at about hair-past seven o'clock, carrying with him a leather satchel in which were $2,000 m greenbacks and several endorsed checks ror various amounts. When he had reached a dark point of Kevins street, about 100 feet Irom his residence, he was assaulted rrom behind by two ruffians and knocked senseless to the sidewalk. His satchel which contained the money was seized and the two ruffians jumped Into a butcner's cart. which was in waiting, and from which they were observed to aught a moment before by a citizen, and drove rapidly away with their booty. The gentleman who witnessed the occurrence gave the alarm, and hastened to the assistance of the prostrate gentleman, who was severely injured about the head. Pursuit on foot was useless, and the rognes were soon out of sight. One or the robbers is tall in stature, and wore a black suit of clotnes and dark hat; the other, who is a short man, was also dressed in black. There was a third party, who remained in tlie cart and officiated as driver. The horse attached to the butcher's vehicle was a dark bay. The wagon was painted in dark colors. Mr. Sweeny was undoubtedly -spotted" while leav ing his oiUce with tlie money, and was rollowed by the rogues until they reached tlie sequestered soot where the robbery was commuted. Toe police or the various precincts were noticed or the affair from the Central Ofllce, and every effort is bemg made to eireet the arrest ot tne ruthans. SOW AT A REPUBLICAN BEETISS ID B3QOKLYS. TUs Genera! Committee (republican) or countv recently appointed a committee of three to conduct a new enrolment or members of the sixth Ward Republican Committee, the old books of the latter organization being incoinpteta, owing to the long period or years that has elapsed since the books were made out. A primary election is shortly to be held. Two members ot a sub-committee of the Sixth Ward Club, appointed to consider ti:e plan or enrolment with the General Committee men, objected to tue whole affair as an intrlugement upon the rictus of their organization, aetuatcd by a desire to carry the approaching primaries by excluding the newly enrolled members rrom voting. 'I he latter gentlemen are endorsed highly and are in every war eligible to membership. Last evening tne chairman (Mr. Cockle) refused to hear any motion from the side or tne house ravorable to the action of tne General Committee, and declared the report of the opponents of the re- enrolment measure as adopted. A general row ensued, there were several Knock downs, the police w(y:e cmled in and the lights turned on". Tne meeting was thus summarily dissolved. The re-curol- ment will be enforced by the Republican ceiieral Committee notwithstanding. THE PBJZE BIHG. Jem Mare anil Tom AUcn.

NO MATCH MADE Yi!T--FIGHT TALK BETWKKN COL- LY£B AN1I EOWAUUS--TIM COLLINS CHALiENGKS ANVJIODY--EOWAKUS' CUALLESUB TKKOWN Ol'IJN TO ALL Tne call issued by Billy Edwards resulted in a meeting being lield on Saturday, ibili inst., at tnls office, lor ihe purpose or arransimj*a matcli between birn and Patsy Sheppard, at which botli parties were present, but nothing was doue. owlasr, il was stated, to those who nad promised to back Slieppard railing to make good their word, a further meeting bemj? arranged for Monday, 20th. Patsy, who was accompanied by Barney Aaron, ielt with the Intention of proceeding; to Sew llaven aud obtaining the required amount from some of liis frleuds there, bat during the evening lie met Tommy Oostello, an up town sport, wno, upon hearing how masters stood, volunteered to Una a century lor Bheppard, promising to Be present with tue sugar at the second meeting. Monday brought together an olu 1'aslmmed crowd, Edwards ttavinu for adviser tne far sighter! Booney Harris, and Sheppard being accompanied, as before, by Barney Aaron. Costello. However, did not make his appearance, though they waited a full liour past lue time appointed, and 60 no satisfactory arrangement was eflected. I'atsy seemed union chagrined at tula state or affairs, saying tnat rather tlian have the affair end tnus he woultt nsrhi for a few Hundred dollars if anybody would put it up: bat as ne couldn't do It himself nothing could be done, and so tlie matter ended, giea'tiy to the regret of all present, especially Edwards. The latter, who placed au additional $160 in tue Hands of tne temporary leaseholder on the 18tli insl., making $280 in all, tnmka it very strange, alter Sheppard talking BO inueli and repeatedly challenging him, that now. when tne time for putting up arrives, tie cannot lind anybody to put up a dollar ou him, aud advises uiiu to Know where the money is corning irom before lie indulges ta so much bounce. Sam Coiiyer's brother came on from Baltimore on the morning ol the 20th, and, after tne negotiations ended between Edwards and Patsy, made a proposition on behalf of ham to nght at US pounds for the tight-weight championship; but Billy said he would not mill at mat weight, but would meet Col Iyer ac tne same weight they fought before--ril pounds--weigh the morning of the fight, wnlch was in accordance with the terms of His challenge. Sam's brother then said he would make the matcli to ncht at 121 iba., aad weigh the day before the flglitmtr, but he was not authorized to do more, than that. Thus the matter ended, and whether anythintr will come of one or other of the proposed matches time alone can ten. In the meantime Edwards leaves Bis original challenge to light at l-'4 IDS., weigh on tue morning or lighting, open to auy man in the country. Below will be lound a communication from Sam Colljer, who is certainly very anxious for a match witU his old opponent:-- BAI.TIMOKK. Md., Dec. 16,1669. FBIKNI QUEEN--I see that Edwarus is OUL in a. challenge to Patsy Sheppard, which T think looks very bad on his pan, as every one knows that 1 have been after him, and anxious all the Ume to make a match for fun or for as much as ho could raise; and as he did so faithfully promise to give me the first chance If he ever fought, I tliiu£ that if he don't keep hie promise and fight me first, nothing but fear la the cause. But I think that, taking into consideration that I am the champion of light weights, that wlh Induce hliB to come right out nat-footcd to compete for it in a good, square, staod up battle. Kespectfully yours, SAM COLLYF.R, Champion of light wclfiliLs. We neglected to mention aoove that Aaron during the meeting offered to light Edwards at .120 ponnds for $2,800 a side, upon the latter saying that he could get to that weight, to which Billy replied that tie would see certain parties, aud if they [bought well of it he would ao so. Tim Collins has also been stirred ap By Edwards' blast ol defiance, and by the .following it will be seen that he accepts Billy's challenge, go there is a chance for a matcli in some quarter.
