Evening session.

The Senate met at 8 o'clock, Lieut. Gov Montague in the chair.

Bills Passed.--A bill to authorize the Circuit Court of Amelia county to make allowances for certain children of. William Willis, a lunatic.

Laid on the Table--The joint resolution for the relief of the securities of P. P. Winston, late Sheriff of Richmond city, was, on motion of Mr. August, laid on the table.

Mr. Douglas moved that the Senate go into Exceptive session for the purpose of considering the Governor's appointments for the Ordnance Department. Appeals were made by friends of the Covington and Ohio Railroad to pass by these appointments until the bill indicated had been disposed of. Mr. Douglas refusing to withdraw his motion, it was agreed to.

The Senate chamber was ordered to be cleared of all, except members of the Senate.

We understand that the Executive session continued until near midnight, during which, all the nominations made by the Governor were confirmed, though not exactly in the order in which they were made.
