BILL TO RESTORE CONFISCATED PROPERTY.!
New York, March 10.—The "World's Washington
special says: “The House Judiciary Csmmitteeyester
day authorized their Chairman to report uu important
bill, to restore possession of the lands confiscated by
the authority of the States lately ifi rebellion. It pro
vides that in all cases when any loyal citizen of tho
United States has disposed of any lauds or tenements
lielonging to him-or her within any of said States by
any order proceeding from or decree of these States,
on the ground of his or her adherence to the Union, or
his or her absence or failure to give support to said?
States it shall be the duty of the President, or the com
manding officer of tiie milil
tlic particular $t§te*or
ting forth dll the fnkli
person or persons so aggrieved the possession and
right which they have been unjustly deprived*}/, and
to protect them in such rights.
MARYLAND CLAIMS DAMAGES FOB BURNT BRIDGES.
The Times’ Washington special says: Hon] R.
Thomas of Maryland, is preparing to make a daiin
before Congress in behalf .of his State, for damages
on account of burning two bridges on the route from
Washington to Frederick city, destroyed by order of
Goneral Lew Wallace, at the battle of Monocacy, in
1864. General Wallace, in response to inquiries from
Mr. Thomas says he ordered the burning of the
bridges to retard Early's march on Washington by
depriving him of facilities lor crossing the streams,
and that Early' was thus detained thirty-six hours. A
second object was to bring into actiou the fores de
tailed to guard the bridges. The overpowering number
of Early’s troops was making it iAxiractic^li to con
centrate all tiie Federal lorces to ^bold thk A?bels in
check. - ^ * 1 f
MORE GENERALS’ TESTIMONY. T
Generals Custar and Fremont arrived in Washing-!
ton yesterday. j l I
Aren. Custar gives a rather gloomy account of political
affairs in Texas. There, is little,‘if any, loyalty out
side our lines, and if onr troops w.ere withdrawn,
there would be none anywhere*.: Greenbacks are but
seldom acknowledged to Lave any value, and gold and
silver are the circulating medium in zuauy places.
Greenbacks will not buy anything. The idigi that they
will be returned is but seldom entertained. Matters
are daily growing worse.
In the returns Of Senator. Howard another instal
ment of testimony will bd ready for' publication,
among which is that of several rebel Generals. (Gen.
Lee says that he always purposely avoided/testify

THE PRESIDENT AND THE SEA ISLAND NEGROES.
Washington, March 10.— President Johnson has
assured Geo. T. Downing, chairman of the colored
delegation at present here, sentjby the colored people
will take place effecting the occupancy of fhft 40
which Gen. Sherman gave the freedmen a possessory
title. The President suggested that the freeamen
should continue to cultivate said lands. Mr, Downing
has received letters from South Carolina; from the
parties interested, telling him of their fears; that they
might be suddenly removed from the lands theV wore
cultivating—fears which arose on the receipt of j news
of tlie veto of the Frcedmcn’s Bureau bill. Wliqu the
fact was presented to the President he gave.the above
The Report of the Committee on ttefion-
It was not generally known by the people of the
south that they were on trial before the Committee on
Reconstruction, in Washington, and that witnesses
were being. examined to prove thejr unfitness for
being again received into tiiO Union soon-after being
accepted and acquiesced in the final arbitrament of
the war in reference to the political and sefctibnal is
sues involved in the contest. Such, however, >s the
case, aud it appears from the report of the committee
that there has been no lack of willing witnesses -to cs-
tiblish tho fact that a majority of the people if tiie
south were secessionists, that they deplore .the failure
of their ckuse. and the consequent loss of their prop
erty, that they do not profess universal affiction for
their late enemies that they do not consider tho radi
cal faction in Congress at .l^ir best friends, tir the
Freedmen’sBuredir'as a desirable substitute ft}r the
American Constitution. As a specimen of the evidence
by which this state of things at tHe south isinideto
appear to the evident satisfaction of the committee, we
give the following extracts from the report relating to
Texas aud Florida :
“Major Geueral Daniel T. Stanly testifies: T*at he,
served in Texas before and after tlje breaking up of

was no effect on the part of masters to restnfh [hem,
but at points somewhat remote—and that is a cofintry
of long distances—at points forty or fifty miles away

the negroes to remain oil the plantations. (They
threatened them, and sometimes used violence—Killing
them in some instances. The troops cndeavoii'd to
arrest tiie murderers, and arrest .those guilty of |wbip-

who loves the Union at the present day. He ,would"

Provisional Governor of Florida.it wap .purely under

one-fourth of the entire number claimed to be Union

PRESIDENT JOHNSON CALLED UPON TO INTEllPEBg.
The jjlp.be calls upon President Johnson to uAter-
fere, and says: The people of Canada are abundantly
able, to give the Fenian xufflfihs a warm reception; but
it is a.poor repayment for -Canadian' government se
ated during the. American rebellion to he now-com
pelled'to spend inohey ifid blood ih resisting outrages
planned in the-.states uf thp ncighboriug republic.
' PBEPAIUNU FOB BATTLE. . "T |
The Uty papers this morptug contain two-wolumns
of fecial despatches from-all parts of Canada,'-giving
news ol the military preparations, from which it ap
pears that in every toWn and city volunteers are turn
ing out iq Tull strength. Troopa have been arm ing
all night from the interior towns, and. are billeted on
the citizens. No fewer than ten have been quartered
upon alleged Head Centre Murphy.
• ; ;i -tiEASn besponsk to the-call.
As fast as they arrive tiie troops 'are organized into
battaliona and drilled five hours per day. Today
there was a turn out eu viasse, -to make a demonstra
tion of strength. From the alacrity with which the
call was answered by all classeg R seems that alii dif
ferences of opinion on the subject of anin-xutioig voil-
federatiou and oilier 'fopies have succumbed to the
dangers of.the hour- . . ..
The excitement is hourly inureasing, and the whole
force is held ready fori embarkation at any moment.
The volimteers get 2$ cents qnd rations per .day..

The Orange organ, the Watchman, to-day says : the
Fenians in this city will walk on St. Patrick’s Day
amicd with pikes and revolvers, and it calls-upon tho
Mayor to prevent the procession. It is believed! tho
influence of pcaco-loVfng Catholics will restrain! the
more violent.men, and that usual processions well be
abandoned. Tfie Watchman also asserts thati tho
Catholic Bishop Lynch of Toronto, has declared his
intentiou of leaving Canada to avoid the danger and-
responstbitit^ ofa battle occurring on file irisl
tioual day. •

for holy order*, who, for divers reasons, are eoettcred
through tbe coputry, and are pursuing their slndies
under innumerable difficulties. In the providence or
God, our seminary buildings have been destroyed by
fire, and a large portleu of the library was lost Tbe
permanent fund, amounting to near fifty thousand
dollars ($'50,000) has been all lost in the political drm-
vulsion which has so lately shaken this land. Gloomy
as is our immediate, retrospect, we look ibrwnrd.
With faith, and hppe, and trust to thq future. We
have two professors ready to commence their work
at once, and God has pntit into the heart of a bene--
Scent layman to present to.the Bishop and trastegs a
large, and well adapted building and grounds, in
Orangehnrg, in ’this State,—a healthy, central, [tud
•altogether-most eligible location,—for the use of the
S ifesaora and students. This la onr beginning;: we
ye a shelter, but not one dollar. But in faith; we
have determined to go on, and tbe trustees have! re
solved that the exercises of the seminary shall com
mence on the first of April. We need foor thooefind
dollars ($4,000) to carry on the work this year; but
we deelre to raise two hundred and fifty thousand
dollars ($260,000), to put the Institution on a seairc
and permanent basis.

appeal to your Christian charity with an object nforc-
wbrthy of'your'aid than this Southern School orjthe

be prepared and sent forth to preach the everlasting
Gospel of tbe Son of God in tho Church, in tiie gfeat
and peculiar field which the providence of Gbd has
allotted toast- ,
It is the purpose of tbe Convention of this diooese
to establish a Preparatory Schodl for boys, which
shall be of a high order, and In connection with the
clnuch. We propose to make this a marked feature
in onr future plans. For many causes, such a. school
is now greatly needed, as education has necessarily
been much neglected of late 1 ; and we desire to pro
ceed at once to the orgarirollon, of the same. We
are also anxious to commence onr work at qnce. In
order that the reaolution of the Diocesan Convention
may be acted upon, namely: “That this Board be
sntbfiriaM and reqnested to search oat, and take by
the hand, such colored persons as may be desiront of
preparing tar the sacred ministry of our church, *nd
to whose capacity and moral and spiritual fitness their
