The Legislature.

In the Senate yesterday joint resolutions of the Legislatures of Tennessee and Pennsylvania, on the present crisis, were read and ordered to be printed. A bill was reported to protect the right of the State and others in railroads and steamboat companies in this State.

In the House, a bill was reported for absolving the State Treasurer from all liability in case of loss of coupon bonds deposited as security for Bank circulation, unless the same be converted into registered stock, and prohibiting coupon bonds from being renewed in the future as such security. Among the bills passed were Senate bill incorporating the Merchants' Savings Bank of Richmond and House bill amending the charter of the Winchester and Potomac Railroad. The bill of last session concerning direct trade was referred to a special committee. In consequence of an omission to take the ayes and noes on the bill for the relief of the Banks, the House requested the Senate to send the bill before it again.
