The Legislature.

The Governor, yesterday, sent to the Senate a detailed report of the acts of Hon. John Tyler as Commissioner from Virginia, accompanied by a copy of the correspondence between that gentleman and the President of the United States, which were read and ordered to be printed. Copies of the documents referred to, which will no doubt be perused with interest, will be found in the regular report of Senate proceedings. Bills were reported relative to the two Courts of Appeal; providing that railroads in which the State is interested shall use materials produced and manufactured in the State; incorporating the Southern Arms Manufacturing Company of Richmond, and for organizing a military force to be called the Virginia Volunteer Legion. Mr. Thomas, of Fairfax, made a strong speech in opposition to the bill to amend the charter of the Winchester and Potomac Railroad Company.--Pending its consideration, the Senate adjourned.

In the House resolutions were offered to charter the Citizens' Insurance Company of Richmond, and to consolidate, under one administration, the Virginia and Tennessee, South-Side, and Norfolk and Petersburg Railroads. Bills were reported to amend the laws regulating Mining and other companies, and for a partial suspension of State bonds, and providing for complying with contracts already made upon the Covington and Ohio Railroad. A report was returned adverse to the petition asking for the formation of a new county out of parts of Monroe and Fayette. --A communication from Ex-President Tyler, relative to his recent mission to Washington, was read, laid on the table, and ordered to be printed.
