obertson and Saunders. Progress of Business.--A large number of bills were read and ordered to their engrossment. Motion to Adjourn.--Mr. Haymond moved a resolution (which was carried,) to the following effect-- That when this House adjourn on Thursday, it adjourn to meet on Monday next. The Speaker suggested that the motion be amended so as to grant leave of absence to Wm. F. Gordon, Jr., Clerk of the House, till Tuesday. Unanimously agreed to. Adjourned. [Note.--The report of yesterday's proceedings in some of the papers, represented the bill for a branch of the Norfolk and Petersburg Railroad as being tabled on motion of Mr. Bisbie, for want of sufficient attendance. Also, bill for Norfolk county Railroad. They should have stated that the branch bill was laid on the table because the Senate bill for the same purpose had become a law, and that the other bill was tabled on motion of Mr. Bisbie, in view of certain amendments which he proposed to offer.]
