--The Senate occupied Saturday on the subject of adjournment.
The committee of conference reported an amendment to Mr. Wallis
' resolution that the Legislature adjourn on Thursday at 11 o'clock, until June 4th; also to appoint a committee of four from each House
to lay said resolutions before President Lincoln
and Jeff. Davis
, and ask a cessation of hostilities until after the assembling of Congress.
The Senate adopted Mr. Wallis
' resolution with the above amendments, but the House
at the evening session refused to adopt the conference committee's report — yeas 15, nays 28.
Subsequently the vote was reconsidered, and the report was recommitted, when the House
adjourned till half-past 8 o'clock tomorrow, at which time the committee will again report.
The two Houses are thus at variance.
The Senate refuses to adopt Mr. Wallis
' resolution or fix a day for the adjournment, unless the House
adopt the Senate resolution and appoint eight commissioners, as above mentioned.
In the House of Delegates, Mr. Wallis
reported a bill calling a Sovereign Convention, which was laid on the table.
The joint resolution from the Senate appointing a committee of four from each House
to visit President Lincoln
and Jefferson Davis
, and the Governors
, was reported upon unfavorably by Mr. Willis
, chairman of the Committee
on Federal Relations, giving certain reasons therefore.
The report was adopted.
They also report that the invasion of Maryland
, and the capture of produce by the Virginia
troops, has been disapproved of by Governor Letcher
in a letter to Governor Hicks
, who has issued orders forbidding the recurrence of such acts.
The report was adopted, and the papers ordered to be forwarded to Mr. Harvey
