The Senate bill for altering the line of the South-Side Railroad Company, after some explanation from Mr. Dickenson of Prince Edward, Mr. Isbell and Mr. Robertson, was passed by an unanimous vote.

Mr. Nash moved to take up the order of the day, being the military bill.

The motion was supported by Mr. Isbell. Mr. CoghillMr. Robertson; and opposed by Mr. Hart and others, but it finally prevailed by the vote of the Senate. The military bill was taken up and the Senate went into secret session.

After some time passed in secret session, the doors were again opened, when the Senate, at the usual hour, adjourned.
