Railway connection. On motion of Mr.Coghill, the Senate took up the bill to provide for the construction of a railroad connection between the Orange and Alexandria and Manassas Gap Railroads, and the Richmond, Fredericksburg and Potomac Railroad. Mr. Coghill desired to make the bill the order of the day for some future day, when it might be fully and fairly discussed. Mr. Quesenbury opposed making it the order of the day for any specified date. He was an advocate of the bill, and desired to call it up when there was a full Senate, so that it might have a fair chance of passage. After some further debate, the bill was laid upon the table and made the order of the day for Friday next. Western Virginia.
