--Senate.--The Senate discussed the Colorado Territorial bill. The House amendments were adopted, and the bill passed. The Nevada and Dacotah Territorial bills were also passed.

The House amendments to the Post Route bill were concurred in, and the bill passed.

The Army bill was up and discussed at length.

After receding from its amendments to the Consular and Diplomatic bill, the Senate passed it.

House.--The House postponed, by a vote of 100 to 74, Stanton's force bill until Thursday, bringing it under the President's rule not to sign any bill three days before adjournment. This is equivalent to the defeat of the bill.

The report of the Committee of Thirty-Three was up and debated, and the day spent, ‘ "filibustering"’ on it. It will be, probably, taken up to-morrow.

The Crittenden resolutions were referred to casually, in debate, as likely to be defeated tomorrow.
