Confederate Congress. Tuesday, Oct. 7, 1862. Senate.--The Senate met at 11 o'clock, Hon Mr. Hunter in the chair. Prayer by Rev. Mr. Jeter. Mr. Lewis introduced a bill authorizing the Confederate States to borrow of the individual States $150,000,000. Referred to the Committee on Finance. Mr. Orr introduced a bill to raise money to support the Government. Referred to the Committee on Finance. Mr. Hill, from the Committee on the Judiciary, to which was referred a resolution inquiring to what extent the military authorities have the right to put restrictions upon the facilities of citizens in traveling, and the transportation of private property, introduced by Mr. Lewis, reported that the committee had previously considered the subject matter of the resolution, and reported thereon, and asked to be discharged from the further consideration of the same. Mr. Brown from the Committee on Naval Affairs, reported a bill authorizing the appointment of three Nav
lines, and the opinion prevailed there (so said one of the witnesses) that whoever caught a runaway thereby, gained a title to him. Cannel, without inquiring into the right of the matter, offered his prize for sale, and King, the accused, bought him for $125. All the evidence went to show that there was no effort made to conceal the transaction or the fact of possession of the negro. He was brought to this city, and accidentally found by his master in the Danville cars, ready to start on his journey South. His Honor reserved his decision until to-day, and the prisoner was remanded to jail. Michael Powers and Chas. Lewis, the garroters, were again committed to jail in default of security to be of good behavior, the complain ant having disappeared. J. H. Tremen, charged with robbing Andrew J. Taylor of $30, was sent on to be examined before the Hustings Court. Thos. Johnson, a soldier, found sleeping off a fit of drunkenness in a door, was sent to the Provost Marshal.
