Washington, Dec. 21.
--Senate.--Mr. Davis, of Miss., intimated that he would make a sacrifice of feeling and serve on the Committee of Thirteen, and the President of the Senate was authorized to fill the vacancy by his re-appointment.

The bill granting the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad the right to build a bridge over the Potomac, and lay a track through the city of Washington, was amended so as to subject it to the city laws, and then passed by 15 majority. It now requires only the action of the House to make a continuous railway connection with the South western route to New Orleans.

The resolutions of Mr. Johnson, of Tenn., were referred to the Committee of Thirteen.
