nish a striking commentary on the change in popular feeling on the abstract question of American slavery. Ten months more and Exeter Hall will have gone the way of the numerous socialistic halls, and free- love phalansteries that have been organized in times past. Wonder how long it will be before African slave labor will again be resorted to in British Jamaica? From the Northern papers received at the Day Book office we glean some items of interest. The Tribune, of the 17th, says Messrs. Mason and Slidell arrived at Bermuda on the 9th, and at St. Thomas on the 10th. This sets at rest all the Herald's sardonic speculations as to their being at the bottom of the sea. They were to proceed immediately on their journey. Mr. Simon Cameron was confirmed Minister to Russia on the 17th, but his nomination met with considerable opposition, and was the cause of considerable argument.

Apt as a hawker and pedlar in said county.-- (Senate bill.) Leave to introduce bills. Mr. Collier, of Petersburg, asked leave to introduce a till as a substitute for the bill for raising Virginia's quota for the Confederate army; and that it may be printed. Mr. Armstrong, of Hampshire, asked a similar permission; which was granted. Mr. Brennan, from the Committee on Finance and Claims, reported that said committee had under consideration the resolution on the subject of refunding to John S. Lacy, sheriff of New Kent county, the damages paid into the Treasury upon three executions upon judgments recovered against him by the Common wealth, and the committee report that it is inexpedient to grant the relief therein sought. Mr. Newman, of Mason, suggesting to the Senate that it was improbable that the most important of the bills before the Senate could be taken up to-day, moved that the Senate do now adjourn; whereupon, at 1 o'clock, P. M., the Senate adjourned.
