From Washington.

WHEELING, Dec. 6—The State Senate to-day passed a preamble and resolution condemning Mr. Carlile for violating the instructions of the body that elected him in failing to sustain the legitimate efforts of the Government to suppress rebellion, in opposing by his votes and speeches in and out of the United States Senate measures absolutely necessary to the preservation of the Union and the enforcement of the laws, and in opposing the new State of Western Virginia into the Union, and requesting him to resign his seat. The resolution will come up in the House Monday, and will probably pass by a large majority.

In the house, to-day a resolution was offered requesting the U. S. House of Representatives to pass the U. S. bill now pending before it, without alteration or amendment. It will come up on Monday, and pass by nearly a unanimous vote.

Governor Pierpont indorses the emancipation policy of President Lincoln.
