The debate on the force bill. The Staunton Volunteer (Force) Bill has been virtually killed, by postponement in the United States House of Representatives.--When it was called up Tuesday-- Mr. Howard, of Michigan, resumed his remarks in favor of it, arguing that it merely gave a construction to laws already in existence. It was the duty of Congress to put into the hands of the President the means for the performance of his duty, and point out the mode in which he should do it. They could not be released from this obligation. He repeated that the President should have the power to execute the Constitution in all its parts. The highest duty of the Government, which dates anterior to all Constitutions, is to preserve its existence. Mr. Pryor said it was the purpose of the dominant party,<
United States vs. John Lockhart. --The defendant in this case having been indicted for misdemeanor in being aboard the Storm King when that vessel was found near the coast of Africa with a number of negroes on board, the case was called yesterday for trial in the Federal Court, Judge Halyburton presiding. A jury was empaneled and sundry witnesses sworn. Dr. Bledsoe, Assistant Surgeon in the Navy, testified that he was on board the San Jacinto when the Storm King was captured.

His opinion was asked at the time of the marriage, and he said, without any hesitation. "That such a marriage might satisfy individual conscience and the reputation of the bride; but that its legal validity was doubtful, since the husband w validate a marriage. The opinion of my father and that of several other Americans was, that if the marriage was not legal in France, neither Miss Paterson nor her children would have any legitimate rights. Moreover, it was notorious in the United States that Miss Paterson had knowingly run the risk of being only a morganatic wife, in the hope of sharing the high position to which she might aspire as the legitimate spouse of a Bonaparte.--This statement is so notorious in America that Miss Pa

But whether this resulted or not. Virginia felt the proud consciousness of having done her duty; and it is not derogatory to her to say that she has and does cherish an abiding love for the Union as it was. He alluded to the vast progress of the United States, from the foundation of the Government to the present time. All this domain a few weeks ago was ours, and it will still be ours, it the interests of Virginia in the Union can be restored. When considering its greatness and its glory, surpassing any that the sun ever shone upon, it was no wonder that Virginia still clung to the Union--though at present with weakened attachment — no wonder that she cherished the fond love of the Union as it was. But that sentiment should not be misinterp

Tobacco. --Messrs. Grant, Hodgson & Co., of London, in their monthly Tobacco circular, thus report the state of the market: --In the early part of the month there was a slightly improved demand for most descriptions, and which was materially increased on receipt of unfavorable advices from the United States.
