r. Crockett withdrew the name of Mr. Preston for the present. Mr. Staples nominated Wm. C. Rives. Mr. Vaden explained that he had intended to support Mr. Tyler for the Senatorship. He now seconded the nomination of Mr. Rives. Mr. Forees re-nominated William Ballard Preston. Here a message was received from the Senate that it had agreed to a joint resolution to postpone the election of Senators to the 15th of February. The postponement was strenuously opposed by Messrs. Mallory and Rives, and advocated by Messrs.Green and Collier. The Senate's resolution to postpone was rejected by a vote of ayes 25, noes 90. Mr. Sheffey was dispatched to the Senate with the information that the House refused to concur in the joint resolution to postpone. Here an interval of an hour and a half transpired, the House waiting for the Senate to take action, during which several desperate attempts were made to procure an adjournment or a recess, in order to get dinne

The Speaker appointed the following Special Committee under the resolution offered yesterday to provide for more effective measures to prevent the escape of slaves to the enemy: Messrs Woodhouse, Baker, Collier, Wilson, of Isle of Wight, and Murdraugh. A resolution was offered by Mr. Mallory, that the House meet daily at 11 o'clock, A. M. Objection being made, the resolution laid over one day under the rule. The House then took up the bill to organize the State troops and volunteers of Virginia. The question, when the House adjourned, yesterday, was the proposed amendment to provide for the filling of vacancies in companies by promotion, except in the office of lieutenants of the lowest grade, which should be filled by election. The amendment was under discussi
ver nine hundred tons, builders measurement, her draught, with machinery, armament, stores, coal, and crew on board, will be scant five feet. Yet she is sharp as the sharpest clipper afloat, and will carry an armament which many an old- fashioned sloop-of-war would stagger under. I would like to give a more particular description, but I am fearful that I might be guilty of making our loyal-malls transport information contraband under the threatened act of Congress. I only wish that Mr. Secretary Mallory could see this remarkable vessel, so well built in so brief a time. I think he would order two or three dozen like her at once, and put, Bassett at the head of his whole corps of naval architects, The Morgan is 202 feet extreme length, and 38 feet 8 inches beam. She was launched with her machinery on board. Another gun-boat of about the same size, but of a different model and by a different constructor, will be launched here in a few days. There is another naval "arrangement" in

From the Committee on Claims: A bill for the relief of W. T Mitchell. On motion of Mr Bass, the bill authorizing payment for clothing furnished to the militia of Roanoke, was ordered to its engrossment. The following resolutions of inquiry were referred to the appropriate committees: By Mr. Mallory of refunding to G. H. Lucy a license tax which he never used By Mr. Woolfolk--Of paying the staff officers of militia regiments called into service by proclamation of the Governor of Virginia of the 8th July, 1861 the Confederate Government having refused to pay the same. By Mr. Bass--Of providing by law that all acts of incorporation of companies shall be subject to amendment and repeal by the General Assembly, unless otherwise provided by law. By Mr. Gordon--Of providing

ill show, by the emulation to enlist, the unappeasable thirst which consumes them, till the moment, to wipe out the remembrance of the late Yankee victories. I am confident no recourse will be had to the draft in Savannah; it would be a stain upon her escutcheon that would not soon be wiped out. There appears in some quarters a great ignorance of what has been done and the means to accomplish the same at the command of the Secretary of the Navy. A New Orleans paper assumes to judge Mr. Mallory, and to request his resignation. The Republican, of this city, takes up the refrain, and modestly points out the Hon. T. Butler King as a proper person to fill the place. Without saying a word against the eminent abilities and the many services rendered to the South by that distinguished gentleman, I will merely say, all the clamor that has been raised against the inefficient working of that Department is founded upon very unstable ground.

The bill as amended was passed. On motion of Mr. Mallory, the Senate bill authorizing the Governor to organize and call out certain military forces for the defence of the cities and towns of the Commonwealth, was taken up. Mr. Mallory suggested several consequential alterations, which the Chair (Mr.Mr. Mallory suggested several consequential alterations, which the Chair (Mr. Sheffky) stated had already been made by the Clerk. Mr. Robertson renewed his motion of yesterday, to add after "and other towns of the Commonwealth," the words "and the counties contiguous thereto." Mr. BareourThis would be equivalent to conferring upon the Governor the authority to apply the act to the whole State, because he need only name any town he pleased, and the "contiguous counties" would be immediately embraced. The amendment was rejected — ayes 24, nays 75. Mes
by court-martial, of violating this article, shall be dismissed from service. Mr. Bingham, (Rep.,) of Ohio, moved an amendment, so as to include not only officers, but any person in the naval or military service of the United States. Mr. Mallory, (Union.,) of Ky., looked upon this as an effect to repeal the Fugitive Slave Law, and as a denial of the States to claim their property. He moved the postponement of the bill. Mr. Blair, of Mo., thought officers could be engaged in betticers to their legitimate duty, and prohibit them from interfering with the civil law. Such practice should not be tolerated for a single moment by the American people. He would not only punish those who would kidnap, but have them shot. Mr. Mallory said that Kentucky had as stringent laws against kidnapping as any other State. Mr. Bingham had read in the newspapers a case of a fugitive who had, at the risk of his life, swam the Oato river into Indiana. He should think that when und

The first of exemptions was quite nengthy, and was deemed necessary by the joint committee in barely keeping alive the various industrial, mechanical, and agricultural pursuits to which it related. An amendment was offered by Mr. Bankerville, and after a lengthy discussion, in which cotton, wool, leather, iron, &c., were severally represented, the ayes and nays were ordered, resulting in ayes 24, nays 48--no quorum voting. Mr. Mallory moved a call of the House, which was supported by Mr. Saunders, of Campbell. Mr. Cazenove would vote for a call of the House, were it not for his experience the last time it was attempted. Mr. Edmunds deplored the absence of members at such times as these, and moved that the bell be tolled. This was accordingly ordered and executed; when, On motion of Mr. Beadford, the House adjourned, the vote being ayes 42, nays 33.
