The report was adopted — ayes 49, noes 11--and the resolutions were made the order of the day for this morning. The Federal troops passed through Baltimore yesterday. About 3 o'clock in the afternoon, a fleet was observed from the wharves of the city, making its way up the river. The fleet consisted of the Harriet Lane, having in convoy the steamer Maryland, the Philadelphia ice-boat, and three propellers, with about 2,700 men on board.--The vessels approached the wharf at Whetstone Point, and landed the troops, while the Harriet Lane stood with her port holes open, to protect the landing. As soon as the force debarked, they started in special trains for Washington. All quiet in Alexandria and Washington, and nothing unusual has occurred at Arlington Heights.
