The Legislature.

In the Senate, yesterday, very little business was transacted.

The House joint resolution fixing Monday next as the day of adjournment, was concurred in.

The House bill for the commutation of the per diem of members of the General Assembly, was taken up, and after some discussion, defeated. Subsequently, a motion to reconsider the vote by which it was defeated prevailed.

The death of Gen. Dimmock was then announced, and the Senate adjourned.

In the House, the Senate amendments to the bill relative to the pay of the State forces were reported, and dissented to by the House.

On motion of Mr. Wilson, of Isle of Wight, the report of the Committee on Banks was taken up and discussed at length by Messrs. Wilson, Buford, and Anderson.

On motion of Mr. Brooke, the report was laid on the table.

Mr. Brooke, chairman of the Committee on Salt, reported several bills, among them one for the appointment of a salt inspector.

The Chair announced the death of General Dimmock, and a committee was appointed upon the part of the House to arrange for the funeral.

The discussion of the report of the Committee on Banks was again resumed and continued till 3 o'clock, when the Chair was vacated until 8 o'clock.
